White Cloud - sign of the presence of God.
Numbers 9:17 Whenever the cloud lifted from above the Tent, the Israelites set out; wherever the cloud settled, the Israelites encamped.
"Godliness with contentment is great gain."
Revelation is about Jesus. And not about the church.
If we love God with all our hearts and make Him the King of our life you will serve Him whole heartedly.
The parable of weeds . . .
24Jesus told them another parable: "The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. 25But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away. 26When the wheat sprouted and formed heads, then the weeds also appeared.
27"The owner's servants came to him and said, 'Sir, didn't you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?'
28" 'An enemy did this,' he replied.
"The servants asked him, 'Do you want us to go and pull them up?'
29" 'No,' he answered, 'because while you are pulling the weeds, you may root up the wheat with them. 30Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.' "
Christ said not anyone who will say Lord, Lord will enter the kingdom.
When we sin do you actually repent or just repeating the sin?
We have to allow God's word to correct us and rebuke us. And this is not only for the wicked but also for the church.

sik'-'l (chermesh (Deuteronomy 16:9; Deuteronomy 23:25), maggal; compare Arabic minjal (Jeremiah 50:16 Joel 3:13); drepanon (Mark 4:29 Revelation 14:14-19)): Although the ancients pulled much of their grain by hand, we know that they also used sickles. The form of this instrument varied, as is evidenced by the Egyptian sculptures. The earliest sickle was probably of wood, shaped like the modern scythe, although much smaller, with the cutting edge made of sharp flints set into the wood. Sickle flints were found at Tel el-Chesy. Crescent-shaped iron sickles were found in the same mound. In Palestine and Syria the sickle varies in size. It is usually made wholly of iron or steel and shaped much like the instrument used in western lands. The smaller-sized sickles are used both for pruning and for reaping.
2 Corinthiants 12:8 Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me.What is the request of Paul?
How many times did he ask God?
Three times. What he requested in this verse is that God will remove the thorn on his body, the Bible (Gal. 4:15) gives us hint that it was in his eyes (probably a non-stop sore eyes). But God's answer was "MY GRACE IS SUFFICIENT FOR YOU". For my power is made perfect in weakness. Can we accept that? Even if we prayed and He doesn't say yes to our request? But Paul acknowledge the will of God in our lives. Why? Because His GRACE IS ENOUGH.
