"Israel, Judgment and Mercy."
This Bible Study is written by Roger Christopherson, and it's transcription/ location is provided by http://www.theseason.org
This chapter is the Revelation of Isaiah, which is very similar to the Revelation that Christ gave to John. It gives us a profile of the same events that are recorded in the Book of Revelation.
Isaiah 24:1 "Behold, the Lord maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof."
The Lord is going to make a complete cleaning of everything that is upon the earth. It is important to understand the word "empty" as given in the Hebrew text. The word is "Baqaq" and means "to utterly make void; to completely empty out". God is going to scrub the old dirty pan, and this earth is the pan. God will not tolerate the wickedness of mankind forever.
Isaiah 24:2 "And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him."
Friend, there will be absolutely no difference in the people at this time. This is saying that it doesn't matter what your job or manner of life is while you are living on this earth, it is going to be cleaned, and the evil done away with. God will not respect the position of any person, but only the condition of their soul, as to whether it has been playing the role of harlotry with the Kenites and Satan, the Antichrist. God does not like it when His children play the role of an harlot spiritually with Satan, who is coming first, and when Jesus comes finds you unfaithful. What matters with Christ is the position that you are in with our Heavenly Father.
God has promised us the most beautiful place to live in, and He has adopted us to Himself that we shall be joint heirs with His Son, it His kingdom. Have you shown Him that you love Him for that promise? The blessings that God gives to His children does not have to wait for the coming of a future kingdom, but it starts the moment that you repent and put your trust in Him.
Isaiah 24:3 "The land shall be uttery emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the Lord hath spoken this word."
Here is that word "emptied" again, it is a reminder of the cleaning job that God will do in this earth at the return of Jesus Christ. "Utterly spoiled" in the Hebrew text is "bazaz" and means "to plunder, take away and gather for a prey utterly." Their are no hidden mysteries with God, no unsolved crimes, and acts that are covered up. The intent of of your mind of what you have done God knows, and on the day of Christ's return is when the cleaning takes place completely. There will be no doubt of guilt or innocence on that day, for the one doing the judging and cleansing knows the truth.
This judgment is not on those that love our Heavenly Father, and have repent in Jesus name, but on those that have refused the eternal gift that He has offered and paid the price with in the blood of His Son Jesus Christ. God loves each soul and desires that no one would perish, but He will not interfere with those that have free will to chose Him or Satan. He offers the eternal life, but He will not force it upon you. God's Son is the Living Word, and the Father expects you to know what is in His Word. What possible service could you do for Him, if you don't know what is written in His Word? The Word of God gives us the instructions for living in the flesh body, and how we can pleas Him when we are here on earth in the flesh.
Isaiah 24:4 "The earth mourneth and faideth away, the world languisheth and fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish."
It will be this earth age that mourneth and faideth away. It will be the evil elements or rudiments that will be cleansed from off the earth, and not the earth itself. The "haughty people" are those that take pride within themselves, and the world system. They are the ones that put their trust in the new world order instead of God.
Isaiah 24:5 "The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant."
This is the reason that the earth is defiled. Mother earth is defiled by those that walk on the earth and do the things that they do. They have transgressed our Heavenly Father's laws; they set out of make what is right, wrong and what is wrong, right. God's law supersedes all laws of man, and just because man thinks he has changed God's ordinances and Word, he hasn't. Though the blood ordinances have been fulfilled in the shed blood of Jesus Christ, the rest of the Law and commandments have not.
Originally we could say that the laws of the land, of our nation were taken from God's Word, and in part to this day it is true. However, we have allowed the precedence of man's judgment to over-ride the Laws of God, in many cases. The precedence of man's laws is when the laws or actions of one man is graded by another man's judgment as to whether it is right or wrong. Man left on his own without God, to judge one another by his own mental standards, will set out to change God's laws. This is why we are to follow God's laws and commandments for when we do we also receive His blessings.
Isaiah 24:6 "Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left."
This then is what is going to happen after the cleansing takes place. After the evil rudiments and all that is wicked is removed from the earth, there will be very few left that have placed the hope in Jesus Christ. The thing that burned them in this final generation will be the deception that is going to take place. The deception of the end days, and the lies and supernatural powers that Satan will use to convince all except those sealed with God's Word in their minds, will cause them to fall away. This should make you sit up and pay attention when God places a curse upon the whole earth. Friend, you don't ever want to fall under God's curse. This curse is in reference to the last two verses of the Old Testament; Malachi 4:5, 6.
Malachi 4:5 "Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord:"
Before the day of the Lord comes, God will send the true knowledge of His Word.
Malachi 4:6 "And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse."
It is this spirit of Elijah that shall turn the heart of the fathers to their children, and the children to their fathers. It is that spirit that rested in John. There are two fathers mentioned here, they are Almighty God, and the Devil, also called the Antichrist. There will be a choice in the selection, and the one that comes first is out to deceive the world into believing that he is the Other. Do you know the difference? This curse that comes is the cleansing of the earth. It is the famine that is going to come upon the earth, not for food and water, but for the hearing of the Word of God.
Daniel 9:27 spoke of the "desolate" that is spoken of here in Isaiah. Jesus also spoke of this in Matthew 24:15, and it is called the "abomination of desolation" However it is not speaking of a condition but a person. That "desolator" is Satan, and the abomination that he commits is when he declares himself to be God, and the entire world believes him.
Matthew 24:15 "When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)"
When Satan makes his declaration that he is Jesus Christ, only those with the Word of God sealed in their minds with the truth will understand exactly Who he is, and that the coming of the true Christ is about to happen. If you do not know the truth before Satan's coming, there will be no mind changing afterwards. Your minds will be set either to the true Father, or the fake father who is Satan.
Isaiah 24:7 "The new wine mourneth, the vine languisheth, all the merryhearted do sigh."
In other words the vine did not produce enough to make wine. "The merry hearted do sigh" because their so-called good times are over. It will be late for them at this time, for they will have entered into the new Millennium age.
Isaiah 24:8 "The mirth of tabrets ceaseth, the noise of them that rejoice endeth, the joy of the harp ceaseth."
There is not going to be any joy for those that were deceived and were taken by the false Christ. We know that it was the grandson of Cain that was the maker of the harp, and from his name "Jubal" that we get the word "Jubilee", the celebration with the harp. These people are Kenites, of the offspring of Cain.
Genesis 4:21 "And his brother's name was Jubal: he was the father of all such as handle the harp and organ."
So God is telling you what is going to happen to the rejoicing that cometh from those that make their celebrations on this appointed day of the Lord.
Isaiah 24:9 "They shall not drink wine with a song; strong drink shall be bitter to them that drink it."
The strong drink is the deception that will have already taken place by this time. Remember that old harlot from Revelation 17:3-5? she was drunken on the blood of the martyrs that knew the true Word of God.
Revelation 17:3 "So he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns."
John was taken in the Spirit all the way to the time of the end, to our generation. This wilderness is the same wilderness that Joel spoke of that was turned from the conditions likened to the Garden of Eden, into this wilderness at the arrival of the locust. Those locusts are the fallen angels that were cast out of heaven to the earth, along with Satan to start the five month period of the great deception, or tribulation.
This woman is a false religion, and she sits on the religious beast of the one world system. Think of this as the world council of churches of today. This old whore caters to every heathen cause coming into view. The "scarlet" color represents royalty, and a very high political power.
The "blasphemy" she is spouting out is against our Heavenly Father, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit of God. In Revelation 13:1 we are given the seven dominions, or continents which cover the earth, with its ten rulers, which are ten authoritative agencies. All of these agencies or powers are riding on that one world government.
Revelation 17:4 "And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:"
The "woman" is the religious order or church system that is riding on this beast. Again she is wearing the royal clothing that shows her power, while the gold and precious stones show her attempt at priestly duties. This is a copy of the breastplate that one of God's priests would wear.
The cup is filled with abominations, which in the Greek text is "bdelugma", and in the plural, means "idolatry". These abominations are the unclean practices of worship, such as Sodomy that will become acceptable to them. This "woman", or religious form rules over all the peoples of the earth that will listen to her deceptions. She is "Mother of Babylon", the Mother of Harlots and is the head of all confusion and deception.
Revelation 17:5 "And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH."
Those of the world are going to be drunk with a stupor that God has sent upon them, that Paul writes in Romans 11:7-10, that they shall believe a lie and blind to the truth. Why? Because they have not studied the Commandments and warnings of God's Word. God gave us a new set of Commandments when He walked the earth, and the new set of Commandments were also the old set, given by God to Moses.
Isaiah 24:10 "The city of confusion is broken down: every house is shut up, that no man may come in."
When this day comes, it is to late to make any decision, for God will close your mind to even considering such a thing. Now is the time to read and make the choices for at the arrival of Antichrist, if you are in the dark as to who comes first, you will already have the mark of the beast and be taken. This "city of confusion" is translated many ways by those that call themselves experts. Lets go to the Hebrew text for the Hebrew Word that this word "confusion" comes from. In the Strong's Hebrew dictionary # 8414; "Tohuw, to-hoo; To lie in waste, a desolation. a worthless thing."
We remember this word from Genesis 1:2 where we are told there that after the earth was created by God, it became a waste and a desolation. The creation took place eons of years ago, it doesn't say when, but after the fall of Satan, when Satan took one third of the angels with him in his fall, God destroyed the earth, and that earth age that was before this flesh age. When that sin came by Satan, the earth became, not "was" as in the translations, a waste. In the Hebrew text "tohu va bohu" which is "a waste and a void". This is how God cleansed the earth after the first earth age, He cleansed it with water.
So here in Isaiah 24 there will be another cleansing at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, only this time it will not be by water. However the earth will be completely cleansed of all evil in the same degree of cleaning as took place back then. The "city of confusion" is "Babylon", the Babylon of the end times that will be in Jerusalem. It will be from Jerusalem that Satan will sit in his temple and rule the world, and declare himself to be the Christ. When Satan makes this world filthy with his lies, God won't throw the world away because of that evil, but God will clean the world and make it fit to be lived in. Just like you don't throw the dishes away when they become dirty, you clean them and use them again.
Isaiah 24:11 "There is a crying for wine in the streets; all joy is darkened, the mirth of the land is gone.
This is what happens at the coming of Jesus Christ, after the world has seen what they have done in ignorance. Then those Christians that followed their pastor and traditions into worshipping Satan the Antichrist will see that they were deceived. They will understand completely that they have been taken in the wrong marriage. They were married to the wrong husband, and they will have such shame that they will desire the mountains to fall on them.
Many of these people were good people that sat in their churches for many years, only never got around to studying God's Word for the warning of the coming of the false messiah. They could not tell the difference between the True Christ and a fake, and thus were taken out of season into a marriage that bonded their soul to Satan. Think of the shame that this will cause. They will be to ashamed to face Jesus Christ on that day and would rather perish for the deeds that they have done.
Isaiah 24:12 "In the city is left desolation, and the gate is smitten with destruction."
Again this is not a city of the condition [desolation], but of the person, the desolator who is Satan the false christ. This gate, or happening of the Antichrist's rule is already written and labeled.
Daniel 9:27 "And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate."
The "sacrifice and the oblation" are what we call communion today. When Jesus was on earth, just before He went to the cross, He took the cup and and broke the bread and said that we were to drink of the wine and eat of the bread in remembrance of His shed blood on the cross, and His body that took the stripes for our sins. When Satan is committing this act of abomination, in declaring himself to be the Christ, most Christians will believe Him, and stop taking the Communion. Why? They will believe him to be Jesus Christ. When this happens Jerusalem is left desolate. Jesus said that when we see this come to pass the end of this flesh age is over.
Matthew 24:15 "When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)"
Matthew 24:16 "Then let them which be in Judea flee into the mountains:"
Matthew 24:17 "Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:"
Matthew 24:18 "Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes."
You don't want to be anywhere near the temple of Satan in Jerusalem at this time for the clean sweeping is about to start. The two witnesses have been killed in the streets of Jerusalem, and it is a matter of hours until Jesus Christ returns to set His feet on mount Zion and throw Satan in the pit.
This week of years or seven years has been shortened to five months in Revelation 9:5, 10 so the time of deception will be much shorter for God's elect sake. Satan will come at the sixth trumpet, saying I have come to fly you away, and people will believe it because their traditions will have prepared them to receive the lie.
The "gate" is the place where judgment took place. Man's judgment is wrong, but God is always swift and justified.
Isaiah 24:13 "When thus it shall be in the midst of the land among the people, there shall be as the shaking of an olive tree, and as the gleaning grapes when the vintage is done."
This means that after the gleaning has taking place and the picking is over there will always be a few good grapes and olives left over. Olive oil is the oil of God's people, and the oil that we are instructed by God to use in Anointing. The name "Messiah" means the "Anointed One". The wine that comes from the grapes that is make pure is the symbol of the Truth of God's Word, and is drunk in the remembrance of Christ's shed blood. What is stated here then is that God will always protect a remnant for himself, so that the truth could be passed down the final generation.
Isaiah 24:14 "They shall lift up their voice, they shall sing for the majesty of the Lord, they shall cry aloud from the sea."
"They" that spoken of here are the few that can see the truth and are not walking in the darkness that the rest of the world is in. This remnant will be singing a song and that song is made clear in Revelation 15:3; "And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, "Great and marvellous are Thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are Thy ways, Thou King of saints." This "song of Moses" is given by Moses in Deuteronomy 32:1-43. This chapter lays out the exact way that the overcomers will overcome the deception of the Antichrist, and they will know the difference between the ways of Satan and the ways of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Isaiah 24:15 "Wherefore glorify ye the Lord in the fires, even the name of the Lord God of Israel in the isles of the sea."
These glorifying fires will destroy all that is evil, but they also will soothe gently all those that have not been deceived. Hebrews 12:29 tells us; "For our God is a consuming fire." That consuming fire of God that consumes the wicked and evil rudiments will not harm one single soul that has the seal of God in their forehead, which is the truth of God's Word in their mind.
Isaiah 24:16 "From the uttermost part of the earth have we heard songs, even glory to the righteous." But I said, "My leanness, woe unto me! the treacherous dealers have dealt treacherously; yea, the treacherous dealers have dealt very treacherously." "
On that final day of this earth age, when the Lord returns, He will gather His own from every corner of the earth. The "righteous" is Jesus Christ. Now this is Isaiah speaking here, not Christ, as his heart goes out to his people for the treacherous ways that they are dealt with and deceived in this last generation. Isaiah is overwhelmed with the lies and traditions that God's people are led to believe, he can see that treacherous ways of the church systems that will draw God's people to them, and through their teachings these people simply don't have a chance.
God is angry with those that profess to be a teacher or leader in the church, and would teach the traditions and doctrines that go against His Word, they are the "treacherous dealers that have dealt treacherously". God has stated his "woe" or warning on them, for they will not get away with deceit. Many of them do this in ignorance, because they are not even familiar with the basics of Gods Word, which is his plan. They are not even familiar with the true teachings of Jesus Christ, but instead teach the traditions and doctrines of their system, and division [denominations].
Isaiah 24:17 "Fear, and the pit, and the snare, are upon thee, O inhabitant of the earth."
Friend, if you are living in your flesh body in the last generation then you are "O inhabitant of the earth". This chapter is written directly to you. God is warning you that there is going to be snares and pit falls waiting for you. The only way that you will be able to go through that mine field is to know the exact location of those pits and snares of the enemy. This Word of God will prepare you in such a way that you don't have to worry about those traps of Satan, and his realm. We will learn from God's Word the method of operation of every snare that has been set to entrap you.
Isaiah 24:18 "And it shall come to pass, that he who fleeth from the noise of the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that cometh up out of the midst of the pit shall be taken in the snare: for the windows from on high are open, and the foundations of the earth do shake."
On this last day of this earth age of the flesh, both the heaven and the earth shall shake, as God is doing His purifying. Every last soul that does not have God's truth will be shaken. If you are standing on the foundation of the Word of the Living God, and not on the traditions of men, then you have nothing to fear. Jesus spoke of this in John 8:31,32.
John 8:31 "Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on Him, "If ye continue in My word, then are ye My disciples indeed;"
John 8:32 "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."
You will be free from the curse, from fear, from the pit, from the snare and all that shall come upon the deceived on that day. God will protect His own, all those that respect Him enough to study His Word to know the truth. When you ask Him for the understanding from His Word, He will give that understanding to you.
Isaiah 24:19 "The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly."
This is directed to this earth age of the flesh man, its world governments, and all that is evil that are in it. God promised it back in the third verse that He is going to wash it like a dish, and make it clean from all the evil and filth that is in it. When God turns this old world up-side-down you will not be one that is shaken if you are in turn with the truth that comes from His Word.
Isaiah 24:20 "The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again."
This means that the Millennium age has arrived, and on that first day of the Millennium every knee shall bow to him. When a cottage is hit by a tornado or strong hurricane, puff, its gone instantly. Don't forget that it is God that created the conditions for that tornado to exist, and it is man's transgression that will cause the shaking to take place. As long as you avoid the transgression to exist in your life, there will be no shaking for you on that day. Friend, that is you we study God's Word, to know how not to transgress,.
Isaiah 24:21 "And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth."
The "high ones" are the nephilim, those fallen angels that are cast out of heaven with Satan to the earth, as recorded in Revelation 12:9; "And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him."
God is going to punish those that have transgressed against Him on both heaven and earth. These "kings" are the kings that are set up to rule over that world order of the time of Antichrist rule, when the great whore is riding upon them. This was discussed in detail under Isaiah 24:9. God back and review. Those kings will have their kingdoms for one hour, as written in Revelation 17:12 "And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.".
Revelation 17:13 "These have on mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast."
Revelation 17:14 "These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for He is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with Him are called, the chosen, and faithful."
There is no judgment for those fallen angels on the day of the Lord. The instant that Jesus Christ returns to earth, they will die in the streets of Jerusalem. This will be after the two witnesses stand to their feet and arise into heaven.
Revelation 11:12 "And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them [tow witnesses], "come up hither." And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them."
Revelation 11:13 "And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven."
These men that were slain are the fallen angels that came to earth when Satan and they were cast out of heaven. These "high ones" are the souls that left their first habitation and came to deceive the men and woman of the world, for those that would allow themselves to be deceived. They do not have to be judged, because they already have been judged, as recorded in the first five verses in Jude.
Isaiah 24:22 "And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited."
These kings of the earth, as well as Satan will be put away in the pit for "many days" which is the thousand years of the Millennium age. This is talking about what is written in Revelation 20:6 and 7.
Revelation 20:6 "Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years."
When you come under the blood of Christ, you take part in the first resurrection. Christ is the first fruit of that resurrection, and you are in the first resurrection. The sting of death will have no power over your soul. When we move into the Millennium age, though all flesh is gone, your soul will already have not only an incorruptible body, but also immortality.
Revelation 20:7 "And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,"
Revelation 20:8 "And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea."
At the end of the Millennium age, Satan will be released for a very short season to go out and deceive again those that just didn't get the message that is going to be taught in the Millennium age. This will be a little time of testing after they have been taught and many just will not get the Word, just as they have been deceived in this earth age. Those that are deceived by Satan at the close of the Millennium age deserved to be destroyed.
Revelation 20:11 "And I saw a great white throne, and Him That sat on it, from Whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them."
This great white throne judgment comes after the Millennium age, and after Satan has been allowed to test those following their learning and discipline of the thousand year period of time. There will be no place to hide, for at this time the old heaven and earth will be done away with, and the new heaven, the new Jerusalem will come down and be on earth following the judgment.
Revelation 20:12 "And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works."
"The dead" are the spiritually dead, those that did not believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and repent of their sins and have the blood of Christ cover their sins in this earth age of the flesh. Though they are in their incorruptible bodies, they have not immortality for their souls yet. They will be judged out of the books that are kept in heaven which records all their deeds and righteous acts. They will be judged with what the do, once they have the knowledge of what God expects of them. In this earth age and dispensation, we are saved by grace, by our faith in the finished world of Christ on the cross. We are saved by the grace of God, when we repent of our sins, and accept Christ's blood to cover all of our sins.
However in the next age of the Millennium, there is no salvation by faith because faith is not required. Jesus Christ will be with us, and all souls will have the full knowledge of what is right or wrong, so what matters then is what you do with what you know to be right. Your words and deeds then are what is recorded in His Word, and they are your "works". Those works are what will condemn you to hell, or save your soul for eternity.
This "book of life" is only for the names of people this earth age of the flesh. In this age it is by the blood of Jesus Christ that you are saved. By your faith and belief in Jesus Christ, you are saying that you believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God the Father, and that you accept Jesus blood that was shed on the cross to cover your sins. Friend, that is why we must always pray in Jesus Name, for that is our only credentials to approach the throne of God.
When you are saved, and have not worshipped the Antichrist in this earth age, then at Christ coming you receive your inheritance. You are changed into your incorruptible body and will also receive immortality at Christ's return. You are judged then, which means that you receive all your rewards. You do not stand before the great white throne judgment when the "books are opened", because you have already been judged and received your rewards.
Revelation 20:13 "And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works."
The subject is "the dead", where were they and what is going to happen to them? Every soul that was not saved out of this present earth age will be delivered up from where ever they are for this judgment time by our Heavenly Father. At this time the soul [spiritually dead in the Millennium] is standing before the Father, who has the books that have their works, their words and deeds recorded in them. It is from those books that you will be judged whether you deserve eternal life, or hell fire. Do you understand how critical this is for them.
Revelation 20:14 "And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death."
The first death is the death of your flesh body in this earth age of the flesh. This "second death" is the death of your soul. That death is the destruction of your soul, when it is turned to ashes, not even the remembrance of you remains in the minds of your family and loved ones. It will be as if you had never existed.
Revelation 20:15 "And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire."
This is direct to our earth age, the time when only your name is recorded in the Lamb's book of life". Nothing else is recorded, because all your works and deeds are blotted out as if they had never been done. What other works that were done for Christ are repaid and given in rewards. God remembers, and it doesn't matter what if you remember or not.
In the eternity, all those that were not recorded in the Lamb's book of life, or that were not judged worthy by their works written in the books, are cast into hell fire and are turned to ashes, not to be remembered any more. Their very souls will be consumed by the fire of the Living God. They will be blotted out as if they had never existed at any time. You will never shed a tear for any one of them because god will eliminate them from your mind forever.
Isaiah 24:23 "Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the Lord of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before His ancients gloriously."
We are called the children of the day, and those of Satan are called the children of darkness. It is the moon that controls the darkness, and those of Satan of the children of the moon. "confounded" in the Hebrew text "reads "to blush with shame". They will see that they went whoring after the wrong man, and were taken when the true Christ returns. They will stand not as the virgin bride of Christ spiritually, but as a bride that has gone whoring before the wedding.
These "ancients" are the elders, the twenty four spoken of in Revelation 4:10 "And four and twenty elders fall down before Him that sat on the throne, and worship Him That lifeth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,"
Revelation 4:11 ""Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive gory and honour and power: for Thou hast created all things, and for Thy pleasure they are and were created."
This verse identifies the time of this chapter exactly as the that Christ returns to this earth. That time is "when the Lord of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, before His ancients gloriously." That time is when He shall rule as King of kings and Lord of lords.
Are you ready for the attack that is coming upon the entire earth today; setting up the one world system that will prepare the people of the earth for their false messiah? Can you spot those events and see those signs that mark the period that we live in today? When God turns this earth age up-side-down and starts to cleanse it, have you prepared yourself to not be part of that cleansing; nor be ashamed?
God promised us that through the Spirit of Elijah the truth would be taught in the latter days, that would turn the hearts of the children to their fathers. That the Truth of God's Word would either turn your heart back to the True Father, and against Him to Satan, the other father. When Satan arrives to earth to fill the role of Antichrist your mind will either be ready to reject him as a fake, which he is, or receive him as your messiah. There is no middle ground then, for you will have the seal of God in your forehead, which is to know the truth and not be deceived by Satan; or you will not.
Revelation 9:4 "And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads."
What Satan and his fallen angels do will be limited to what God has commanded them to do, and that is to test and deceive those that "do not have the seal of God in their foreheads." They will be out to save the trees, the fish, and animals of the earth, and preserve it forever, Why? Because they will believe that it is theirs. Their only mission is to deceive men and women of the earth. Which side are you going to be?
This chapter of Isaiah was an overlay of the book of Revelation, a prophecy written six centuries before Christ walked the earth. It is a warning written to you and I who are living in the generation that is seeing it all come to pass. It is a warning to us to prepare ourselves that we not be deceived into the worship the false christ that shall come before the True Christ. This is a serious time to be living in, and make sure that you stand as a champion of God at this time.
