"God will Judge" from Revelation 15:1-8

Perhaps God Will Judge Us in Small Batches? Giclee Poster Print by Jean Fouquet, 18x24Seven plagues speaks about great finale. Revelation is not chronological order not like Genesis.

On this chapter John speaks more about tribulations.

The description of Hell

Matthew 13:49-50
49This is how it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come and separate the wicked from the righteous 50and throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

God is angry on this chapter for those who rejected the Holy Spirit or have the mark of the beast, and keep in mind that the believers are already in Heaven - after the rapture.

God will Surely Judge, how does there words affect us?
Come to think of it, are you qualified to go to Heaven?

Always be prepared to give the answers to those who asks.

Those who are victorious over the Beast are those who didn't received the mark of the beast.

"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom but fools despise wisdom and understanding".
In other words be under God's leading, under the control of the Holy Spirit. Give Him the authority to control over your life. The word "sub" is be under. Christians are like "Submarine" be under the control of God, you will never see a submarine flying in the sky, do you?

Your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, do you respect your body by not drinking too much, smoking cigarettes, and involving in sexuall immorarity?

Even in the midst of judgement God is in control. His glory is present.

Romans 11:33 Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God!
How unsearchable his judgments,
and his paths beyond tracing out!
Hebrews 13:11-12
11The high priest carries the blood of animals into the Most Holy Place as a sin offering, but the bodies are burned outside the camp. 12And so Jesus also suffered outside the city gate to make the people holy through his own blood.

"Be with The Lord" from 1 Chronicles 11

As Christians whatever we are doing, we must always depend on the Lord. And be use by the Lord.

David first became the King of Hebron and served 7 then He served as the King of Israel for 40 years.

FEAR - means F.alse E.vidence A.re not R.eal

Joab - is nephew of David, son of David's sister.

David was successful because the Lord was with him.
The secret to become great in the side of God is to make God important to us. If God is for us, who can be against us?

John 15:5 "I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.

Pray for each other and be with the body of Christ. Depend on God and always recognize those who prayed for you.

Give everything to Christ as anything you give to God is never wasted.

Essential Works of Charles Spurgeon
Charles Haddon (C.H.) Spurgeon (June 19, 1834 – January 31, 1892) was a British Particular Baptist preacher who remains highly influential among Christians of different denominations, among whom he is still known as the "Prince of Preachers". This despite the fact that he was a strong figure in the Reformed Baptist tradition, defending the Church in agreement with the 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith understanding, against liberalism and pragmatic theological tendencies even in his day.

"There will Be Judgement" from Revelation 14:14-20

The Parables of Jesus: Six In-depth Studies Connecting the Bible to Life (Deeper Connections)In the world today sins are prevalent.

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 . . .
Matthew 13:24-29
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.

Romans 8:1 Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus,[a]

a.) Romans 8:1 Some later manuscripts Jesus, who do not live according to the sinful nature but according to the Spirit,

SICKLE

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.

Pastor's Message
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.

"Don't Forget God" from 1 Chronicles 10

The Mysteries of the Bible (Vol 3) ~ King Solomon / King David / The Last Revolt / The Philistines (DVD, 2007, 3 hrs 8 min)
Philistines - The Philistines were an uncircumcised people inhabiting the shore plain between Gezer and Gaza in Southwestern Palestine (see PHILISTIA). The name Palestine itself (Hebrew pelesheth) refers to their country. The word means "migrants," and they came from another country. They are noticed 286 times in the Old Testament, and their country 8 times.

The Importance of Worship

David emphasized worship as the foundation of Israel. As soon as he conquered Jerusalem, he brough the ark of the covenant there. He made preparations to build the temple and organized the priest and Levites to serve there. He established large corps of musicians to praise God. In response, God promised that a line of leaders would descend from him (1 Chronicles 17:10-14)

The hardest part in our Christian life is when we don't have the power of the Holy Spirit.

Suicide is a sign of desperation and lack of faith in God. Base on the survey somewhere in the world commits suicide every 60 seconds.

1 Chronicles 10:4 Saul said to his armor-bearer, "Draw your sword and run me through, or these uncircumcised fellows will come and abuse me."
But his armor-bearer was terrified and would not do it; so Saul took his own sword and fell on it.

1 Chronicles 10:13-14
13 Saul died because he was unfaithful to the LORD; he did not keep the word of the LORD and even consulted a medium for guidance, 14 and did not inquire of the LORD. So the LORD put him to death and turned the kingdom over to David son of Jesse.

Saul died as He committed transgression. And God put him to death and turned the kingdom to David.

Don't let your blessings become a curse.
If you forget God and all you see are your blessings then your blessings will become a curse. Always acknowledge God as the source of everything.

Dagon - little fish

We should not compare God to any image found in this

"Continue to Worship and Follow Jesus" from Revelation 14:1-13

When an athlete run without preparation for example stretching and warm up exercise he/she will end up hurting his/her body. And so, this is also the same with our walk with the Lord. We must continue to stretch and do the warm up exercise in order to win the race (our Christian walk).

Continue the relationship with God even in the midst of tribulation. As in the end we will be with Jesus Christ forever.

In the context at Revelation 14:3-4
3And they sang a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and the elders. No one could learn the song except the 144,000 who had been redeemed from the earth. 4These are those who did not defile themselves with women, for they kept themselves pure. They follow the Lamb wherever he goes. They were purchased from among men and offered as firstfruits to God and the Lamb.

The 144,000 are the Isrealites. The Lamb is Jesus Christ.

Mt. Zion - supporting verses are in
Romans 9:33 As it is written:
"See, I lay in Zion a stone that causes men to stumble
and a rock that makes them fall,
and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame.
and
Micah 4:7
The Lord will rule over them in Mt. Zion

The entire Revelation 14 are the 2nd part of the great tribulation.

Mark of the Beast - 666 If you have it you will suffer in the burning fire of Hell.

Mark of God - the Holy Spirit if you have it you belong to God, no one can harm and over power you.

How can you receive the Holy Spirit?
Have a relationship with the Lord, and be over flow by the Holy Spirit.

Keep in mind that we sing worship and praises to God not to the people. And God wants us to be set apart and be consecrated. Do not participate in the things of this world, specially sexuall immorality, avoid Satan's temptations.

"Our life will be constant blackout unless you switch ON the Light of Jesus Christ"

Jeremiah 2:3 Israel was holy to the LORD,
the firstfruits of his harvest;
all who devoured her were held guilty,
and disaster overtook them,' "
declares the LORD.
James 1:18 He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of all he created.

Blameless - when you repent quickly and not continue with your sin.

Hebrews 6:10 God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.

"Be Use By God" From 1 Chronicles 9

First Chronicles condense the most important of the genealogical information. It was meant to help the Israelites reestablish their identity as God's people.

In tonight's teaching we will talk about how to be use by God.

Now, will you use the cup if its dirty?
Of course not, before we use the cup we will clean it first and then use it. In other words we should clean ourselves from sin and be use by God, if we are cleansed God will use us. And allow God to use us. He will build the person according to what He wanted.

The more you allow your self to learn His word the more opportunity for you to grow and be used by God.


God will equipt you in whatever you need if you freely allow yourself to be used by God. And be set apart for God to live a life of pure and maintain purity, be exclusively sold out to Christ, and do your part to be an example to other believers, through the way we speak and act.

The moment we make Christ our foundation He will continue to protect you.
Serve God with happiness.

Nehemiah 12:28-30
28 The singers also were brought together from the region around Jerusalem—from the villages of the Netophathites, 29 from Beth Gilgal, and from the area of Geba and Azmaveth, for the singers had built villages for themselves around Jerusalem. 30 When the priests and Levites had purified themselves ceremonially, they purified the people, the gates and the wall.

Gatekeepers (Porta) take charge of the doors and gate.

Romans 12:7 If it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching, let him teach;
Each one has a responsibilities and rule in the church.

Bible Glossary

  • Jakin - He shall establish.
  • Adaiah - Adorn by Jehovah

"Don't Be Deceive" from Revelation 13:11-18

Revelation: Four Views: A Parallel CommentaryThe key verse is from this chapter is on Revelation 1:19

Do you remember the song "The Great Pretender"? The lyrics of this song are for hypocrites.
These days, there are so many persons who are deceived by religion.

Matthew 7:15 Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.

If the preacher teaches the Bible and be proud of himself and not humble then He is a
false prophet. If he proclaim to be a lamb then inside he is a wolf.

3 things to identify a false prophet:

  1. He will use himself as positive example always boasting about himself.
  2. The second thing is he will teach about money all the time. And even ask for money and give an account to deposit your money. Each man should give what you want to give cheerfully not reluctantly as God likes the cheerful giver.
  3. 3rd A false prophet always teach how we are blessed and not the trials and tribulation.

Anti-Christ has power that look like Christ performing miracles to deceived people. They
will ask you to buy an oil or hankerchief to be healed or put your hand in the television or
radio, they are putting God in the box which is not right. The nature of satan is like snake
he likes to deceive. Satan is the father of lies.

There are so many ways to deceive us.
For the love of money is the root of all evil and loving anything more than God.

Deuteronomy 13:1-3
1 If a prophet, or one who foretells by dreams, appears among you and announces to you a miraculous sign or wonder, 2 and if the sign or wonder of which he has spoken takes place, and he says, "Let us follow other gods" (gods you have not known) "and let us worship them," 3 you must not listen to the words of that prophet or dreamer. The LORD your God is testing you to find out whether you love him with all your heart and with all your soul.

Matthew 24:24 For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect—if that were possible.



Matthew 24:15 "So when you see standing in the holy place 'the abomination that causes desolation,'spoken of through the prophet Daniel—let the reader understand—



Daniel 11:36 "The king will do as he pleases. He will exalt and magnify himself above every god and will say unheard-of things against the God of gods. He will be successful until the time of wrath is completed, for what has been determined must take place.



2 Thessalonians 2:4 He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God's temple, proclaiming himself to be God.



Habakkuk 2:19 Woe to him who says to wood, 'Come to life!'
Or to lifeless stone, 'Wake up!'
Can it give guidance?
It is covered with gold and silver;
there is no breath in it.

And so, the first beast is only a man in Revelation 19:20 But the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who had performed the miraculous signs on his behalf. With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped his image. The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur.

Never trust man only trust in the Lord Psalm 118:9 It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in princes.

The false prophet will force everyone to have mark of the beast either on the right hand
or on forehead.

During the last days there are signs like having a single all purpose identification.

God's word is complete.

Why are we studying the book of Revelation because God wants us to be aware.

Revelation 14:9 A third angel followed them and said in a loud voice: "If anyone worships the beast and his image and receives his mark on the forehead or on the hand,

Anyone who receive the mark of the Beast will go in the lake of fire.

Today as Christians we have received the mark of the Holy Spirit. Have a decerning
Spirit, do the devotion.

We need to spend time reading His word familiarizing and obeying it.

Pastor's Message
Psalm 125:1 Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever.
God wants us to fully trust in Him. The psalmist use Mount Zion as an example for us to picture out how firm and establish we are if we TRUST in the LORD. Remember this beloved -FROG- Fully Really On God.

"God is Concern To You" from 1 Chronicles 8

The more we have the knowledge of this world the more we tend to boast. But God will use the broken people. The point is when you surrender wholly to God, He will use you.

First, we need to have the right relationship with God.

Read the Bible and pray everyday.
We are redeem only by the Blood of Jesus Christ. It is never about religion, we are saved only thru faith with Jesus Christ, not even Calvary Chapel can save you.

We need to be hungry not on what the world brings but what the heavenly things brings.

Our body is the temple of God. So if you abuse it you're not worshipping God properly.

Sin - is when you missed the mark.

God is concern to us in a sense He gave us the Power.
Whoever get the power - gets the glory.

Bible Names Meaning

  • Benjamin - son of the right hand
  • Bela - damage or ruin
  • Naaman - pleasantness
  • Ahihud - union or brother and friend
  • Uzza - strength
