The Mystery AND The Promise of Messiah

For ALL who will believe and trust in Him ...  (Excerpts from Ephesians 1)


   "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew)

     who has blessed us in Christ (Messiah) with every spiritual blessing in the Heavenly places ...


     In love He predestined us for adoption as sons

     through Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) ...


     In Him we have redemption      ("ransomed" from our sins and from Hell)

     through His blood,

     the forgiveness of our trespasses (sins),

     according to the riches of His grace,     ("Grace" is getting something we don't deserve)

     which He lavished upon us ...


     In all wisdom and insight making known to us the mystery of His Will,       ("Mystery" is something that had not yet been revealed ...)

     according to His purpose,

     which he set forth in Christ (Messiah)

     as a Plan for the fullness of time,

     to unite ALL things in Him,

     things in Heaven

     AND things on Earth.       (This was God's Plan since the Fall of Adam in Genesis 3 ...)


      In Him we have obtained an inheritance ...       (Life everlasting ...  and a Kingdom which will never end)

     so that we who were the first to hope in Christ (Messiah)       (All who come to Him in love and in faith before the Great Tribulation)

     might be to the praise of His glory.


     In Him you also,

     when you heard the Word of Truth, the Gospel ("good news") of your Salvation,     (Your sins forgiven through Him)

     and believed (fully trusted) in Him,       (Which is required to receive the gift of Heaven ... and to escape Hell)

     were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit,

     who is the guarantee of our inheritance

     until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of His glory"

The Mystery AND The Promise of Messiah

For ALL who will believe and trust in Him ...  (Excerpts from Ephesians 2)


   "And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked,    ("Dead"... spiritually dead ... and condemned to Hell)

     following the course of this world,

     following the Prince of the power of the air (Satan),   

     the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience --

     among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh,

     carrying out the desires of the body and the mind,

     and were by nature children of wrath,   

     like the rest of Mankind.    (We are NOT born children of God ... we must be "born again" through our faith in Christ - Messiah)


     But God, being rich in mercy,

     because of the great love with which He loved us,

     even when we were dead in our trespasses,

     MADE us alive together with Christ (Messiah) --


     By Grace you have been saved --      ("Grace" is getting something we don't deserve)

     and raised us up with Him

     and seated us with Him in the Heavenly places in Christ Jesus,

     so that in the coming ages He might show the immeasurable riches of His grace

     in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew).


     For by GRACE you have been saved through faith.

     And this is not your own doing;

     it is the gift of God,

     not a result of works,

     so that no one may boast.

     For we are His workmanship,

     created in Christ Jesus for good works ..."     (We are told ALL who place their love and faith in Jesus Christ become a "new creation")

   having given themselves over to sexual immorality

   and gone after strange flesh, (homosexuality)

   are set forth as an example,

   suffering the vengeance of eternal fire."

   (Jude 1:7)     (Bible Warnings:   'Apocalypse' ... We Will Know When We Are Close)


 "And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes,

   condemned them (Sodom and Gomorrah) to destruction,

   making them an example

   to those who afterward would live ungodly ..."

     found that 4,023 'non-citizens' may have cast ballots in that election. Dornan lost by 984 votes."  (Boston Globe)


As our nation turns its back on God (and Israel) we are seeing a marked increase in "lawlessness" among elected officials ...

The Mystery AND The Promise of Messiah

For ALL who will believe and trust in Him ...  (Excerpts from Ephesians 2)


   "Therefore remember that at one time you Gentiles in the flesh,

     called “the uncircumcision” (Gentiles) by what is called the circumcision (Jews), which is made in the flesh by hands --

     remember that you were at that time separated from Christ (Messiah),

     alienated from the commonwealth of Israel

     and strangers to the covenants of promise,

     having no hope

     and without God in the World.


     But now in Christ Jesus (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew)

     you who once were far off      (from God)

     have been brought near

     BY the blood of Christ (Messiah).


     For He Himself is our peace,

     who has made us both (Jew and Gentile) one

     and has broken down in His flesh the dividing wall of hostility ...

     by abolishing the law of commandments expressed in ordinances,

     that He might create in Himself

     ONE new man in place of the TWO, so making peace,

     and might reconcile us both to God        (The Jews became alienated through disobedience ... and the Gentiles through ignorance)

     in one Body through the Cross,

     thereby killing the hostility.    (And fulfilling God's Promise to Abraham ... who was "called" by God while still a a Gentile)


     And He (Messiah ... Christ)

     came and preached peace to you who were far off (Gentiles)

     and peace to those who were near (Jews).

     For through Him we both (Jew and Gentile)

     have access in one Spirit to the Father.      (This was God's Plan since the Fall of Adam in Genesis 3 ...)


     So then you are no longer strangers and aliens,

     but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God,

     built on the foundation of the Apostles and Prophets,

     Christ Jesus Himself being the cornerstone,

     IN whom the whole structure, being joined together,

     grows into a Holy Temple in the Lord.

     In Him you also are being built together into a dwelling place for God by  the Spirit."

Top US General Warns Iran's Dangerous Game Could Draw Middle-East And US Into Conflict ...

--Debkafile      (Prophecies:  The US will be "Neutralized" ... then Russia, Iran, Turkey, and allies will invade Israel)      "Neutralized" means the US will be UNWILLING or UNABLE to defend Israel after this coming war starts.  "Neutralized" can mean Militarily, Politically, Economically, or any combination of the three.  The Bible warns the US will NOT defend Israel when this coming war takes place.  According to the Bible, Israel must stand alone ... with God.  


When Russia, Iran, Turkey, and their 'coalition' of nations attack and invade Israel, the U.S. will be unwilling or unable (or unwilling and unable) to help defend Her ... one might also question why the US has waited until now ... our advantage would have been much greater while we had our forces and allies at fighting strength in Iraq and Afghanistan ... but our leaders have waited until our forces, our weapons inventories, our economy, and our national morale has been depleted to their weakest points in many years.

This Week's Daily Bible Reading (Excerpts and Notes): 

Book of Revelation and Micah - Zechariah


Daily Bible Reading:  Micah 4-5 ... Revelation 11

--Alpha News Daily     (Daily Bible Verses ... Daily List and Index)


Micah 4-5  (excerpts and notes) ... 


Around 700 BC God tells the Children of Israel WHERE Messiah would be born ...


   "But you, O BETHLEHEM Ephrathah,

     though you are little among the thousands of Judah,

     Yet out of you shall come forth to Me

     The One to be RULER in Israel,

     Whose goings forth have been

     from of old, from everlasting."    (Eternal!)

     (Micah 5:2)        


"Everlasting"... a Biblical description of God!!!   The Bible warns Messiah would step forth from Eternity.


God warns there will be TWO overwhelming invasions of Judah and Israel ...


   -  First ... "Babylon"... and God would rescue them (as He did)

   -  Second ... "Many Nations" will assemble against Israel ...   (Prophecies: The coming "APOCALYPSE" and Armageddon)

   -  GOD will rescue Israel ... and ISRAEL will then rule over ALL NATIONS ...  (Prophecies:  MESSIAH'S RETURN)



REVELATION 11   (with notes) ...


A new Temple will be built in Jerusalem around the time of Armaggedon  ...


   "Then I was given a measuring rod like a staff, and I was told,

   “Rise and measure the Temple of God

     and the altar and those who worship there,

     but do not measure the court outside the Temple;

     leave that out,

     for it is given over to the nations (Gentiles),

     and they will trample the Holy City for forty-two months.


God will send Two Witnesses    (There is much speculation here ... many think they'll be Moses and either Elijah or Enoch)


     And I will grant authority to MY Two Witnesses,

     and they will prophesy for 1,260 days,    (Exactly 3 1/2 years ... prophetic 360 day years ... half of the Tribulation)

     clothed in sackcloth.”


     These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands       (Study the Prophets ...)

     that stand before the Lord of the Earth.

     And if anyone would harm them,

     fire pours from their mouth and consumes their foes.

     If anyone would harm them, this is how he is doomed to be killed.


     They have the power to shut the sky,

     that no rain may fall during the days of their prophesying,

     and they have power over the waters to turn them into blood

     and to strike the Earth with every kind of plague,

     as often as they desire.


     And when they have finished their testimony,

     the Beast that rises from the bottomless pit (the Abyss)

     will make war on them and conquer them and kill them,

     and their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city

     that symbolically (spiritually) is called Sodom and Egypt,

     where their Lord was crucified.    (Jerusalem)


     For three and a half days

     some from the peoples and tribes and languages and nations

     will gaze at their dead bodies and refuse to let them be placed in a tomb,

     and those who dwell on the Earth will rejoice over them

     and make merry and exchange presents,    (This is the only mention of any "rejoicing" during the Great Tribulation)

     BECAUSE these Two Prophets had been a torment

     to those who dwell on the Earth.


     But after the three and a half days

     a breath of life from God entered them,

     and they stood up on their feet,

     and great fear fell on those who saw them.       (Perhaps this whole event will be televised worldwide on CNN ...)


     Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here!”

     And they went up to Heaven in a cloud,

     and their enemies watched them.

     And at that hour there was a great earthquake,

     and a tenth of the city fell.

     Seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake,

     and the rest were terrified and gave glory to the God of Heaven.


     The second woe has passed; behold, the third woe is soon to come.


The Seventh Trumpet ...


     Then the seventh angel blew his trumpet,

     and there were loud voices in heaven, saying,

   “The kingdom of the World

     has become the Kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ (Messiah),

     and He shall reign forever and ever.”


     And the twenty-four elders who sit on their thrones before God

     fell on their faces and worshiped God, saying,


  "We give thanks to You, Lord God Almighty,
     who is and who was,       (notice the "and is to come" is not included here  ... for it has now been fulfilled)
     for You have taken Your great power
     and begun to reign.

     The nations raged,       (See Psalm 2 ...)
     but Your Wrath came,
     and the time for the dead to be judged,
     and for rewarding Your servants, the prophets and saints,

     and those who fear Your Name, both small and great,
     and for destroying the destroyers of the Earth.”


     Then God's Temple in Heaven was opened,

     and the Ark of His Covenant was seen within His Temple.

     There were flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder,

     an earthquake, and heavy hail."      (Prophecies: The coming "APOCALYPSE" and Armageddon)       (Prophecies:  The coming "RAPTURE")



Daily Bible Reading:  Micah 6-7 ... Revelation 12

--Alpha News Daily     (Daily Bible Verses ... Daily List and Index)


Micah 6-7  (excerpts and notes) ... 


   -  What does the Lord require?  "Do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with your Lord"

   -  God will destroy the wicked

   -  Wait for the God of Salvation ..."The Godly has perished from the Earth ... There is no one upright among Mankind"

   -  All the nations who come against Israel ("Armageddon") will be made desolate ... "Shall turn in dread to the Lord"

   -  God will one day pardon and bless the "remnant" of Israel


REVELATION 12   (with notes) ...


This chapter gives us a glimpse into the invisible powers and forces at work around us  ...

AND IT EXPLAINS "WHY" ALL THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD (who the Bible clearly says are controlled by Satan)



The Woman (Israel) and the Dragon (Satan) ...


   "And a great sign appeared in Heaven:

     a Woman clothed with the Sun,

     with the Moon under her feet,

     and on her head a crown of Twelve Stars.    (See Genesis 37:9 - The Woman is Israel and the 12 Stars are the 12 Tribes)

     She was pregnant and was crying out in birth pains and the agony of giving birth.


     And another sign appeared in Heaven:


     a Great Red Dragon,

     with seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads seven diadems.       (See the parallel prophecies of the "Antichrist")

     His tail swept down a third of the stars of Heaven

     and cast them to the Earth.     (One-third of all angels in Heaven have rebelled under Satan's command)


     And the Dragon stood before the Woman who was about to give birth,

     so that when she bore her Child he might devour it.    (This Child was FIRST prophesied in Genesis 3:15 ... "her Seed")

     She gave birth to a male Child,      (Messiah ... Christ in English ... who God said would destroy Satan in Genesis 3:15)

     One who is to rule ALL the nations with a rod of iron,

     but her Child was caught up to God and to His Throne,    (This was when Jesus ascended into Heaven ... see Acts 1:9)

     and the Woman fled into the wilderness,     (During the "Great Tribulation" ..."The Time of Jacob's (Israel's) Trouble")

     where she has a place prepared by God,     

     in which she is to be nourished for 1,260 days.      (Exactly 3 1/2 years ... prophetic 360 day years)


War in Heaven ... Satan Thrown Down to Earth


   "Now war arose in Heaven,

     Michael and his angels fighting against the Dragon.      (Michael is the powerful Archangel assigned to protect Israel)

     And the Dragon and his angels fought back, but he was defeated,

     and there was no longer any place for them in Heaven.


     And the Great Dragon was thrown down,

     that ancient Serpent,     (The "Serpent" in the Garden ... see Genesis 3)

     who is called the Devil and Satan,    (God clearly explains "WHO" the Great Red Dragon is ...)

     the deceiver of the whole World --

     he was thrown down to the Earth,

     and his angels were thrown down with him.


     And I heard a loud voice in Heaven, saying,

   “Now the salvation and the power and the Kingdom of our God

     and the authority of His Christ (Messiah) have come,

     for the accuser of our brethren has been thrown down,

     who accuses them day and night before our God.


     And they (the brethren in Christ) have conquered him (Satan)

     BY the Blood of the Lamb

     and by the Word of their testimony,

     for they loved not their lives even unto death.     (Millions who turn to the Lord in faith will be killed ...)


     Therefore, rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them!       (Consider this verse ...)

     But woe to you, O Earth and Sea,

     for the Devil has come down to you in great wrath,

     because he KNOWS that his time is short!”     (We are told the Earth and Mankind will be made "desolate" at this time)


     And when the Dragon saw that he had been thrown down to the Earth,

     he pursued the Woman  (Israel)    

     who had given birth to the male Child.     (Satan may believe he can win and survive IF he destroys Israel ...)

     But the Woman was given the two wings of the great eagle

     so that she might fly from the Serpent into the wilderness,

     to the place where she is to be nourished

     for a time, and times, and half a time.    (Exactly 3 1/2 years ... 1260 days ... the last half of the Great Tribulation)


     The Serpent poured water like a river out of his mouth after the woman,

     to sweep her away with a flood.

     But the Earth came to the help of the Woman,

     and the Earth opened its mouth and swallowed the river      (We don't yet know what this description represents ...)

     that the Dragon had poured from his mouth.    (This is still future ... yet, those on Earth at that time WILL understand)


     Then the Dragon became furious with the Woman

     and went off to make war on the rest of her offspring,

     on those who keep the Commandments of God

     and hold to the testimony of Jesus (Yeshua).     (Prophecies:  The coming "RAPTURE"... Jew and Gentile ... please don't be "left behind") 

     And he stood on the sand of the sea."


Daily Bible Reading:  Nahum 1-3 ... Revelation 13

--Alpha News Daily     (Daily Bible Verses ... Daily List and Index)


Nahum 1-3  (excerpts and notes) ... 


   -  God warns of the coming Day of God's Wrath and Indignation ... who can stand against it?

   -  But "God is good" and a "stronghold" in "the Day of Trouble" for "those who take refuge in Him" 

   -  Terrible judgment against Nineveh (Assyria)

   -  A "Worthless Counselor" who "Plotted Evil Against The Lord" (Antichrist?) came from them


REVELATION 13   (with notes) ...


The FIRST Beast  (The coming Antichrist)


   "And I saw a Beast rising out of the Sea,    (The final gentile "empire"... Satan's Antichrist ... a counterfeit "Messiah")

     with ten horns and seven heads,    (He will first rise over 10 nations from the ancient Roman Empire)

     with ten diadems on its horns      (Study the "Beasts" in Daniel 7 which prophesied 4 Empires and Antichrist)

     and blasphemous names on its heads.      (See Revelation 12 ... Satan is the power controlling this Leader)

     And the Beast that I saw was like a leopard;      (In Daniel the "leopard" represented the Greek empire)

     its feet were like a bear's,       (In Daniel the "bear" represented the Medo-Persian empire)

     and its mouth was like a lion's mouth.      (In Daniel the "lion" represented the Babylonian empire)


     And to it the Dragon (Satan) gave his power    (See Revelation 12 where God tells us the "Dragon" is "Satan")

     and his throne and great authority.

     One of its heads seemed to have a mortal wound,

     but its mortal wound was healed,      (The Antichrist may appear to be "resurrected" from a mortal wound)

     and the whole Earth marveled as they followed the Beast.

     And they worshiped the Dragon,

     for he had given his authority to the Beast,

     and they worshiped the Beast, saying,

   “Who is like the Beast, and who can fight against it?”


     And the Beast was given a mouth      (Other prophecies also mention he will have a loud and busy mouth ...)

     uttering haughty (arrogant) and blasphemous words,

     and it was allowed to exercise authority for forty-two months.       (Exactly 1260 days ... 3 ½ years ... final "Tribulation")


     It opened its mouth to utter blasphemies against God,

     blaspheming His Name and His Dwelling,   

     that is, those who dwell in Heaven.    (This may refer to those "Raptured" who were indwelt by God's Spirit)

     Also it was allowed to make war on the saints

     and to conquer them.     (We are told of blessings in Heaven for the millions who will be killed by the Beast)


     And authority was given it

     over EVERY tribe and people and language and nation,      (A coming "One-World Government" and Leader)

     and ALL who dwell on Earth will worship it,   

     everyone whose name has NOT been written before the foundation of the World

     in the Book of Life of the Lamb who was slain.     (The assurance of life in Heaven  ... it's NOT too late!!!) 


     If anyone has an ear, let him hear:   (These words are important ...)


        'If anyone is to be taken captive,
           to captivity he goes;
        if anyone is to be slain with the sword,
           with the sword must he be slain.'    
(Prophecies:  The coming "RAPTURE"... Jew and Gentile ... please don't be "left behind")


     Here (verse above) is a call for the endurance and faith of the saints."     (Finding HOPE and COMFORT in Times of Trouble ...)


The SECOND Beast   (The Antichrist will have a Religious Partner ... a coming "One-World Religious System")


     Then I saw ANOTHER Beast rising out of the Earth.

     It had two horns like a lamb      (He will rise with "Christian" credentials or title ... and a call for "peaceful coexistence")

     and it spoke like a dragon.      (But he is empowered and controlled by "Satan"... great lies and deception)

     It exercises ALL the authority of the first Beast (Antichrist) in its presence (or on its behalf),

     and makes the Earth and its inhabitants worship the first Beast,

     whose mortal wound was healed.    (Another hint the Antichrist may revive after an assassination attempt)


     It (the "Religious" Beast) performs great signs,    (These two coming World Leaders will perform miracles)

     even making fire come down from Heaven to Earth in front of people,   (Mimicking the Two Witnesses of Revelation 11)

     and by the signs that it is allowed to work in the presence of the Beast      (These "Leaders" will be very, very, popular)

     it DECEIVES those who dwell on Earth,      (He will deceive the World into thinking they are "Godly" men ...)

     telling them to make an image for the Beast

     that was wounded by the sword and yet lived.      (Another hint the Antichrist may rise after a mortal attack)

     And it was allowed to give breath to the image of the Beast,

     so that the image of the Beast might even speak   (Miraculous? ... Virtual Reality? ... Disney Animatronics?)

     and might cause those who would NOT worship the image of the Beast

     to be SLAIN.     (God promises blessings and Eternal Life for ALL who will die for their faith in Messiah.)


A Coming "One-World Economy" AND "Global Monetary System". . .



     it causes ALL,

     both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, 

     to be MARKED

     on the right hand or the forehead,

     so that NO ONE can buy or sell

     UNLESS he has the mark,      (Tattoo? ... Micro-chip? ... We don't know right now.)

     that is, the name of the Beast      (This "mark" identifies the wearer with Satan and his Antichrist)

     or the number of its name.    (Warning:  ALL who take this mark will be CURSED ... FOREVER!)


An Enigma ...


     This calls for wisdom:

     let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the Beast,

     for it is the number of a man,

     and his number is 666.    


Note:  This prophecy is very crucial for those who have not accepted Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) as their Lord and will be alive when this coming world leader (the Antichrist) rises to power and this law is enacted and enforced.  This "mark" may be some kind of tattoo, or implanted microchip with all of your credit card and banking information, we really don’t know right now.  It will not be easy to refuse this mark, whatever it is, for many of you will have families and children that will need to be fed.  But, please be warned . . . by taking this mark, you will have sealed your eternal fate in Hell.  In God’s eyes it identifies you with the Antichrist ... and Satan.  There will be no turning back for any who take the "mark, the name of the Beast, or the number of his name."  The utter darkness, loneliness, and torments of Hell will be their fate and their eternal destiny ...   (Prophecies:  The coming ANTICHRIST)


Daily Bible Reading:  Habakkuk 1-3 ... Revelation 14

--Alpha News Daily     (Daily Bible Verses ... Daily List and Index)


Habakkuk 1-3  (excerpts and notes) ...


   -  "The righteous shall live     (Eternally in God's Kingdom of Heaven)

        by his faith."    


Habakkuk's reaction after being told and shown God's prophecy concerning "The Day Of Trouble"...


   "I HEAR,

     and my body trembles;
     my lips quiver at the sound;
     rottenness enters into my bones;
     my legs tremble beneath me.
     Yet I will quietly wait for the Day of Trouble
     to come upon people who invade us (Israel and Jerusalem)."      
(Prophecies: The coming "APOCALYPSE" and Armageddon ...)


Through Habakkuk God teaches us to rejoice in the Lord even during devastating trials and situations ...


   "Though the fig tree should not blossom,
     nor fruit be on the vines,
     the produce of the olive fail
     and the fields yield no food,
     the flock be cut off from the fold
     and there be no herd in the stalls,       (When we are left with nothing but our faith and hope in God ...)
     yet I will REJOICE in the
Lord;       (In James 1:2 we are told to "Count it all joy when you fall into various trials.")
     I will take joy in the God of my salvation.     
 (God's Promise ...)
, the Lord, is my strength;
     He makes my feet like the deer's;
     He makes me tread on my high places."    
(Finding HOPE and COMFORT in Times of Trouble ...)



REVELATION 14   (with notes) ...


The Lamb and the 144,000 ... (See Revelation 7 - these are chosen from the Tribes and Children of Israel)    


   "Then I looked, and behold,

     on Mount Zion stood the Lamb,

     and with Him 144,000

     who had His Name and His Father's Name written on their foreheads.

     And I heard a voice from Heaven like the roar of many waters

     and like the sound of loud thunder.


     The voice I heard was like the sound of harpists playing on their harps,

     and they were singing a new song before the throne

     and before the four living creatures

     and before the elders.


     No one could learn that song except the 144,000

     who had been redeemed from the Earth.

     It is these who have not defiled themselves with women, for they are virgins.

     It is these who follow the Lamb wherever He goes.

     These have been redeemed from Mankind

     as firstfruits for God and the Lamb,

     and in their mouth no lie was found,

     for they are blameless.


The Messages of the Three Angels


     Then I saw another angel flying directly overhead,

     with an eternal Gospel ("Good News" of Messiah)       (Some say this might be a satellite broadcast ... we don't know.)

     to proclaim to those who dwell on Earth,    (The two witnesses, the 144,000 Jews, and this angel will all be sent by God)

     to EVERY nation and tribe and language and people.     (Millions will be saved through these teaching faith in Jesus)


     And he said with a loud voice,

   “Fear God and give Him glory,    ("The fear of God is the beginning of Wisdom"... and God blesses those who fear Him)

     because the hour of His Judgment has come,

     and worship Him who made Heaven and Earth,

     the Sea and the springs of water.”     ("In the Beginning God created"... we either believe God or those who hate Him)


     Another angel, a second, followed, saying,

   “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great,

     she who made all nations drink the wine of the passion (or wrath)

     of her sexual immorality.”


A terrible curse for ALL who will take the "mark" of the Beast ...


     And another angel, a third, followed them,      (The world "angel" literally means "messenger"...)

     saying with a loud voice,

   “If anyone worships the Beast and its image

     and receives a mark on his forehead or on his hand,

     he also will drink the wine of God's wrath,

     poured full strength into the cup of his anger,

     and he WILL be tormented with fire and sulfur

     in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb.

     And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever,

     and they have NO rest, day or night,

     these worshipers of the Beast and its image,

     and WHOEVER receives the mark of its name.”


A word of hope and encouragement for all those who will REFUSE to take the "mark" through their faith in Jesus  ...


     Here is a call for the endurance of the saints,      ("Saints" is from "sanctified" which means "set apart" by God)

     those who keep the commandments of God and their faith in Jesus.    (ALL who love God and Jesus are called "saints")

     And I heard a voice from Heaven saying,

   “Write this: 

     BLESSED are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.”

   “Blessed indeed,” says the Spirit,

   “that they may rest from their labors, for their deeds follow them!”


The "Harvest" of those on Earth who turn to God and Jesus (Yeshua) in faith, love, trust, and obedience ...


     Then I looked,

     and behold,

     a white cloud,

     and seated on the cloud one like a son of man,

     with a golden crown on his head,

     and a sharp sickle in his hand.

     And another angel came out of the Temple,

     calling with a loud voice to him who sat on the cloud,

   “Put in your sickle, and reap,

     for the hour to reap has come,

     for the harvest of the Earth is fully ripe.”       (Prophecies:  The coming "RAPTURE"... Jew and Gentile ... please don't be "left behind")

     So he who sat on the cloud swung his sickle across the Earth,   

     and the Earth was reaped.     (We are told millions will be "beheaded" at this time for their faith in Christ (Messiah)


The "Harvest of Wrath" of those who have hardened their hearts against God and rebel against His Word  ...


     Then another angel came out of the Temple in Heaven,

     and he too had a sharp sickle.

     And another angel came out from the altar,

     the angel who has authority over the fire,

     and he called with a loud voice to the one who had the sharp sickle,

   “Put in your sickle and gather the clusters from the vine of the Earth,

     for its grapes are ripe.”

     So the angel swung his sickle across the Earth

     and gathered the grape harvest of the Earth

     and threw it into the great winepress of the Wrath of God.

     And the winepress was trodden outside the City (Jerusalem),

     and blood flowed from the winepress,

     as high as a horse's bridle,

     for 1,600 stadia (about 184 miles)."      (Prophecies: The "APOCALYPSE" and Armageddon ...)        (Prophecies:  MESSIAH'S RETURN)


Daily Bible Reading:  Zephaniah 1-3 ... Revelation 15

--Alpha News Daily     (Daily Bible Verses ... Daily List and Index)


The passages in Zephaniah and Revelation are both describing aspects of the same coming "Day of the God's Wrath"...


Zephaniah 1-3  (excerpts and notes) ...


   “I will utterly sweep away everything
     from the face of the Earth,” declares the

     I will sweep away man and beast;
     I will sweep away the birds of the heavens

Lord.     (Prophecies:  The coming "RAPTURE"... Jew and Gentile ... please don't be "left behind")


   "Those who have turned back from following the Lord,
      who do not seek the
or inquire of Him.”     (There is no faith, fear, love, or acknowledgment of God in their lives ...)


     I will punish the men     (Mankind ... men and women)
     who are complacent,
     (In Revelation 3 Jesus warns those who are "lukewarm" in their faith and love ...)
     those who say in their hearts,
will not do good,
      nor will He do ill.’     
(They have no faith or fear of God who created them ... and they have no desire to learn of Him)


the day of the wrath of the Lord ... 


    A DAY OF WRATH is that Day,     (The Bible says followers of Messiah are NOT appointed to "the Day of Wrath"...)
     a Day of distress and anguish,
     a Day of ruin and devastation,
     a Day of darkness and gloom,
     a Day of clouds and thick darkness,
     a Day of trumpet blast and battle cry
     against the fortified cities
     and against the lofty battlements.


     I will bring distress on Mankind,
     so that they shall walk like the blind,

God PLEADS with those in Israel and to ALL Mankind

to RETURN to Him BEFORE it's too late ... 

God warns GAZA (which is in the Land given to the tribe of Judah)

will help trigger the coming Day of Wrath ...


   "Gather yourselves together,

     Yes, gather together O undesirable nation   

     (the nation who would willingly try to give God's land to her enemies)

     BEFORE the decree is issued,

     BEFORE the day passes like chaff,

     BEFORE the Lord's fierce anger comes upon you,

     BEFORE the day of the Lord's anger comes upon you!

     SEEK the Lord, all you meek of the Earth

     who have upheld His justice   (meaning ... this warning is also for everybody on Earth!)

     SEEK righteousness,

     SEEK humility.

     It may be that you will be hidden

     In the day of the Lord's anger."    (The coming 'Apocalypse' ... the 'Day of the Lord's Wrath')


   "For GAZA shall be forsaken,      (Prophecy:  GAZA ... Gaza is LINKED to the coming "APOCALYPSE")

     And Ashkelon desolate;

     They shall drive out Ashdod at noonday,

     And Ekron shall be uprooted.

     Woe to the inhabitants of the seacoast,

God tells us why His Judgment will fall upon Jerusalem, Israel, the World, and ALL Mankind ...

REVELATION 15   (with notes) ...


"Revelation" reveals the "details" of many events which will come upon the Earth during "The Day of God's Wrath" ...


Preparing The Seven Angels with Seven Bowls filled with the WRATH of God ... the LAST Seven Plagues


   "Then I saw another sign in Heaven, great and amazing,

     seven angels with seven plagues,

     which are the last,

     for with them THE WRATH OF GOD is FINISHED.    (These will be the last series before Jesus returns to "restore"...)


     And I saw what appeared to be a Sea of Glass mingled with fire --

     and also those who had conquered the Beast    (the Antichrist)

     and its image and the number of its name,    (Those who will be killed for their faith during the "Great Tribulation")

     standing beside the Sea of Glass with harps of God in their hands.

     And they sing the song of Moses, the servant of God,

     and the song of the Lamb, saying,

        “Great and amazing are Your deeds,
          O Lord God the Almighty!

          Just and true are Your ways,
          O King of the Nations!       ("King of kings and Lord of lords")
          Who will not fear, O Lord,
          and glorify Your Name?
          For You alone are Holy.
          ALL nations will come
          and worship You,

          for Your righteous acts have been revealed.”      
(Prophecies:  MESSIAH'S RETURN)


The Seven Bowls with Seven Plagues are prepared ... The WRATH of God.


     After this I looked,

     and the Sanctuary of the Tent (Tabernacle) of Witness in Heaven was opened,

     and out of the Sanctuary

     came the seven angels with the seven plagues,     (Prophecies: The coming "APOCALYPSE" and Armageddon ...)

     clothed in pure, bright linen, with golden sashes around their chests.


     And one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels

     seven golden bowls full of the WRATH of God who lives forever and ever,

     and the sanctuary was filled with smoke from the glory of God and from His power,

     and no one could enter the Sanctuary    

     UNTIL the seven plagues of the seven angels were finished."       (Prophecies:  The "RAPTURE"... is to ESCAPE these things)

REVELATION 16   (with notes) ...


The Seven Bowls of God's Wrath


   "Then I heard a loud voice from the Temple

     telling the seven angels,

   “Go and pour out on the Earth

     the seven bowls of the Wrath of God.”


Harmful and painful sores came upon the people who bore the mark of the Beast and worshipped its image ...


     So the first angel went and poured out his bowl on the Earth,

     and harmful and painful sores came upon the people

     who bore the mark of the Beast and worshiped its image.


The Sea will be turned into the blood of a corpse ... every living thing that is in the Sea will die


     The second angel poured out his bowl into the Sea,

     and it became like the blood of a corpse,

     and every living thing died that was in the sea.


The rivers and the springs of water will become blood

BECAUSE they have shed the blood of the saints and prophets ...


     The third angel poured out his bowl into the rivers and the springs of water,

     and they became blood.

     And I heard the angel in charge of the waters say,


   “Just are you, O Holy One, who is and who was,
     for you brought these judgments.
For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets,
     and you have given them blood to drink.
     It is what they deserve!”


     And I heard the altar saying,

   “Yes, Lord God the Almighty,
     true and just are your judgments!”


The Sun will "scorch" people on Earth with fire and fierce heat ...


     The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the Sun,

     and it was allowed to scorch people with fire.

     They were scorched by the fierce heat,

     and they cursed (blasphemed) the Name of God

     who had power over these plagues.

     They did not repent and give Him glory.


Great darkness ... people gnawed their tongues in anguish


     The fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the Beast,

     and its kingdom was plunged into darkness.

     People gnawed their tongues in anguish

     and cursed the God of Heaven for their pain and sores.

     They did not repent of their deeds.


ARMAGEDDON:       (Prophecies: The coming "APOCALYPSE" and Armageddon ...)

God will assemble the kings of the whole world "to the place called Armageddon" ...


     The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates,

     and its water was dried up,

     to prepare the way for the kings from the East.   


     And I saw, coming out of the mouth of the Dragon

     and out of the mouth of the Beast

     and out of the mouth of the False Prophet,

     three unclean spirits like frogs.

     For they are demonic spirits, performing signs,

     who go abroad to the kings of the whole world,

     to assemble them for battle on the Great Day of God the Almighty.

     (“Behold, I am coming like a thief! Blessed is the one who stays awake,

     keeping his garments on, that he may not go about naked and be seen exposed!”)

     And they assembled them at the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.


The Final Judgment:  The Seventh Bowl is poured out into the air ...


     The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air,

     and a loud voice came out of the Temple, from the Throne, saying,

     “It is done!”


A great Earthquake such as there had never been since man was on the Earth ...


     And there were flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder,

     and a great Earthquake such as there had never been since man was on the Earth,

     so great was that Earthquake.

     The great city was split into three parts,

     and the cities of the nations fell,

     and God remembered Babylon the great,

     to make her drain the cup of the wine of the fury of his Wrath.


Every island and mountain on Earth will disappear ...


     And every island fled away,

     and no mountains were to be found.


Great hailstones about 100 pounds each will fall upon people ...


     And great hailstones, about one hundred pounds each,

     fell from Heaven on people;

     and they cursed God for the plague of the hail,

     because the plague was so severe."       (Prophecies:  The "RAPTURE"... God's provided that generation a way to ESCAPE these things)

REVELATION 17   (with notes) ...


The Great Prostitute and the Beast ...


  "Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and said to me,

   “Come, I will show you the judgment of the Great Prostitute      (A "Religious" system who has turned from God's Word)

     who is seated on many waters,      (This religious system has spread all around the World ...)

     with whom the kings of the Earth have committed sexual immorality,      (Mixing "idol-image" worship with God's Word)

     and with the wine of whose sexual immorality

     the dwellers on Earth have become drunk.”

     And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness,

     and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet Beast that was full of blasphemous names,

     and it had seven heads and ten horns.     (See the prophecies of Satan and the Antichrist in the earlier chapters ...)

     The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet,

     and adorned with gold and jewels and pearls,      (This religious system will be known by its "regal" persona ...)

     holding in her hand a golden cup full of abominations

     and the impurities of her sexual immorality.

     And on her forehead was written a name of mystery:

   “Babylon the great, mother of prostitutes and of Earth's abominations.”

     And I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints,

     the blood of the martyrs of Jesus.      (This apostate church or religious system will kill many Bible believing Christians)


     When I saw her, I marveled greatly.

     But the angel said to me,

   “Why do you marvel?

     I will tell you the mystery of the woman,

     and of the Beast with seven heads and ten horns that carries her.

     The Beast that you saw was, and is not, and is about to rise from the bottomless pit    (Satan ...)

     and go to destruction.      (We find later Satan will be cast into the outer darkness and lake of fire ...)

     And the dwellers on Earth whose names have NOT been written in the Book of Life     

     from the foundation of the World       (God's Promise ...)

     will marvel to see the Beast,      (In the Bible ALL who are not with Jesus (God's Word) are considered with Satan)

     because it was and is not and is to come.     (Your choice is Jesus and Heaven ... or Satan and Hell ... there is no other)


     This calls for a mind with wisdom:

     the seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman is seated;      (An allusion to "Rome"...)

     they are also seven kings, five of whom have fallen,

     one is, the other has not yet come,

     and when he does come he must remain only a little while.      (The Antichrist ... a very popular coming world leader)


     As for the Beast that was and is not, it is an eighth but it belongs to the seven,

     and it goes to destruction.

     And the ten horns that you saw are ten kings   

     who have not yet received royal power,  

     but they are to receive authority as kings for one hour,

     together with the Beast.      (He will rise over 10 nations of the ancient Roman Empire ... he will consolidate 3 of them)

     These are of one mind,

     and they hand over their power and authority to the Beast.

     They will make war on the Lamb,       (Jesus Christ ... Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew)

     and the Lamb will conquer them,       (Prophecies:  MESSIAH'S RETURN)

     for He is Lord of lords and King of kings,

     and those with Him are called and chosen and faithful.”     (The assurance of life in Heaven  ... it's NOT too late!!!) 


     And the angel said to me,

   “The waters that you saw, where the prostitute is seated,

     are peoples and multitudes and nations and languages.

     And the ten horns that you saw,

     they and the Beast will hate the prostitute.      (The Antichrist and nations will later turn against this religious system)

     They will make her desolate and naked,

     and devour her flesh and burn her up with fire,

     for God has put it into their hearts to carry out His purpose

     by being of one mind and handing over their royal power to the Beast,

     until the Words of God are fulfilled.

     And the woman that you saw is the great city    (After the Flood, the global rebellion against God began in Babylon)

     that has dominion over the kings of the Earth.”     (Prophecies:  The coming "RAPTURE"... Jew and Gentile ... please don't be "left behind")


Note:  Many people today do not know whether or not they (or their loved ones) will go to Heaven.  Many have not been adequately (or honestly) taught what the Bible actually says and teaches ...


For the ASSURANCE of Life in Heaven (and of having ALL of your sin and guilt completely removed) . . . A.C.T. NOW!!! 


-  Acknowledge you are a sinner ... and have sinned against God's Law

-  Confess your sins to God

-  Trust (believe) completely in Jesus Christ  (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) ...

     -  He (lovingly and willingly) died for all of your sins on the Cross ... and His innocent blood washes away ALL our sins

     -  He was buried ... 

     -  He was raised (Resurrected) from the dead the third day ... and now waits to see if you are "with" Him or "against" Him

-  Turn back to God ... and turn away from sinful activities ("repent") ... He will welcome you with tears of joy.


When you believe and trust in (and love) Jesus Christ as your "Savior" (who lovingly saves you from your sins and from Hell) ... and then turn away from your sinful ways and turn back to God ("repent"), you can have the complete peace and assurance in your heart that when you die, you will enter into His Kingdom of Heaven ... forever and ever it’s God’s Promise!!! 


The ONLY thing God asks a NON-believer to do is to "believe"... Jesus (God) did ALL the work ... life in Heaven is offered as a GIFT!!! 



Grace and Shalom
