Isaiah

Chapter 54

"The call to Sing; COME."

This Bible Study is written by Roger Christopherson, and it's transcription/ location is provided by http://www.theseason.org

Isaiah 54:1 "Sing, O barren, thou that didst not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, thou that didst not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife," saith the Lord."

God is telling His children, the offspring of Sarah and sons of Isaac to "shout in triumph", to sing with great joy. This verse is an idiom that Jesus used in Matthew 24:19, and Mark 13:17, and is directed to those people of the House of Israel that are living in the last days when Satan comes to earth to rule. It is referring to those that are spiritually with child, and give suck or service to Satan's system.

Matthew 24:19 "And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!"

Mark 13:17 "But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!"

To "travail with child" spiritually speaking means that you have given yourself over to Satan. You have done it in ignorance because you believe that he is the true Messiah. You have done this because you have been taught to believe that way through your traditions and doctrine. The "desolate" are those that are numb or stupified in their minds. Jesus is giving those that turn themselves over to the Antichrist a woe, which is a severe warning. Many Christians that do love the Lord today, will be taken instantly and wed to Satan upon His return because they simply do not know the difference between the coming of the first christ, Satan, and the second advent of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Those that stay barren at this time are God's elect. They will have nothing to do with that false messiah. They know exactly who Satan is when He arrives here on earth, and these elect will give Satan no respect at all.

When Jesus was carrying his cross up that hill on His way to be crucified on Calvary's hill, the women of Jerusalem were standing by and weeping for Jesus. When Jesus saw them weeping, He turned to them and spoke these words.

Luke 23:28-31 "But Jesus turning unto them said, "Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for Me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children. [28] For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, `Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck.' [29] Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, `Fall on us;' and to the hills, `Cover us.' [30] For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?' " [31]

Jesus is asking; if they will do this to the Christ when blood is still in His vains, what will they do in the time when the Holy Spirit comes? If they would not accept Me, when they can see me and hear My words, what will they do with the Comforter, when they can not see nor touch.

God's elect will know Him and remain true and loyal until the sounding of the very last trumpet. They will know the fake for what he is, and stay clear of everything about false christ. They will remain a virgin spiritually, and stay true to our true husband. Frankly speaking, God's election are already God's wife, chosen before the foundation of this earth age, judged and set apart.

Ephesians 1:3 "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:"

Ephesians 1:4 "According as He hath chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love:"

Ephesians 1:5 "Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will,"

God's elect were set aside and chosen because of the stand that each of the elect took in that first earth age. They all stood against Satan at His fall, and remained true to the Father. Every last one of them shall remain true to God in this earth age of the flesh and each will be found worthy on the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. After we have seen the prophesies concerning Jesus death, and withnessed that great detail that Jesus followed in order to make that Word true, it makes is so easy to commit ourselves to Him, when He gave so very much for each of us.

Have you told Our Heavenly Father that you love Him? He blesses those that do. Step into the light and receive that eternal life and hope. That is why Jesus paid the price that He paid, and was willing to take those stripes from the whips, and go to the cross as a lamb to the slaughter. He became the sacrifice of our sins once and for all.

Isaiah 54:2 "Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes;"

This is God's guarentee that within the Millennium age we are going to win back many of the souls that would not listen, and even many of those that God sent the stupor of slumber upon, as Paul wrote of in Romans 11:7, 8.

Romans 11:7, 8 "What them? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear";) unto this day."

The day referred to is the day that Satan commits his abominations in the role of Antichrist, also called the "instead of christ". For the protect the minds of many that simply could not stand against Satan, God has sent a "spirit of slumber" over their spiritual eyes, that would protect them for committing the sin from which there is no forgiveness. That sin has not nor could have not been committed yet, for it can only be committed when Satan is here on earth as Antichrist, and one of the elect would refuse to allow the Holy Spirit to speak through them.

Mark 13:11 "But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Spirit."

God is telling us through Isaiah to enlarge the house, make that tent much larger, stretch those tent pegs way out there, for the family of God is going to greatly increase in the Millennium age. Many of those Christians that sat in their church houses for years, loving the Lord, yet with that spirit of slumber placed upon them, are coming into the tent in that Millennium age. When we leave these physical, aging bodies at the sound of the seventh and last trumpet, those blinders will be taken off, and most of those dear souls will see the shame that their innocence brought upon them, through their traditions, and will turn completely to the obedience of our Lord Jesus Christ.

This is why we are told to wait patiently for the true Christ. We will not see Jesus in these flesh bodies, nor any of the things required by these flesh bodies, including any forms of idolatry be around.

Isaiah 54:3 "For thou shalt break forth on the right had and on the left; and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited."

At the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, His kingdom will be established right here on earth, and those that waited patiently will rule and inherit that kingdom as joint heirs right along with our Lord Jesus Christ. "Thy seed", which are the saved of this age of the flesh will inherit, or rule over the Gentile nations. Every last city that was deceived by the flood of lies that Satan and his army of fallen angels, will see the truth. Every knee on the face of the earth will bow a knee to Jesus Christ on that first day of the Millennium age, and Satan and all evil will be gone on that day.

It is important that the Great tribulation of the end times is comprised of six trumpets that deal with the deceptions of Satan. When Satan deceives all the people of the earth into believing that he is God, God will give him the supernatural power and the authority to do all of his wonderful miracles, and the ability to do what ever it takes to deceive the people of the earth. All that is but God's elect, for every last one of them will know that we will not see our Lord Jesus Christ in person in these flesh bodies. All the events that Satan will perform, and that will happen to set up Satan's kingdom are given in God's Word, and those of the elect know ahead of time what to expect. Satan will be no surprise to any of them.

Then when Jesus Christ does come at the seventh trumpet, each of God's elect will take this Word right back into those cities that were deceived, and the family of God will be greatly expanded. The spirit of slumber will be lifted and many will turn back to Jesus, the true Christ. The age of the flesh body is over, and all souls will be changed from their flesh and decaying bodies into their new incorruptible bodies in the wink of an eye. This is why the mental block of understanding will be lifted, and all souls will understand immediately the entire plan of God.

Isaiah 54:4 "Fear not; for thou shalt not be ashamed: neither be thou confounded; for thou shalt not be put to shame: for thou shalt forget the shame of thy youth, and shalt not remember the reproach of thy widowhood any more."

God is telling you not to be afraid of that time when Satan is here, and also not to be confused by what you are seeing take place. When you read and study God's Word with understanding, you will know what to expect in the few years or months that we have in front of us, and you will know what to expect when Satan appears at the sixth trumpet. This verse refers us to Revelation 18:7; where the old harlot of Mystery Babylon sits there in all of her atire, and claims that she is a queen.

Revelations 18:7 "How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, `I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.' "

Make sure that you don't join that queen and play the role of the harlot, like the rest of the world will do. Satan will appear on earth and tell his queen that he is going to fly her out of here, and the harlot queen will believe him. The problem that this queen has is that she is going nowhere except to bed with Satan. Those that fall to Satan's deceptions will proudly declare their marriage to Satan, for they believe Satan is The Messiah, only he is a fake. Friend, the first messiah to come is the false messiah, and it is sad that the people just do not understand the manuscripts that they should, and allow themselves to believe the minister that sounds the best and offers them the most. The church world is offering the cheap and easy way out of what God's Word tells us will come to pass. Most Christians today just don't care what God's Word has to say, and they allow anyone to do their interpreting for them.

Isaiah 54:5 "For thy Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is His name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall He be called."

Our Heavenly Father is the Maker of all things in this universe, and that includes you and all your possessions. The elect of God knows that our Heavenly Father is our husband, and not that fake messiah that comes to earth first in the end times to deceive you into marrying him. The elect are the wife of God, taken to wife in that first earth age when their stand was made against Satan's rebelling, and they were judged and set aside then, predestined for His service. Many became that wife when they became the elect of God. They earned the right to be justified there as we read of in Romans 8:28-30.

Romans 8:28 "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose."

We know that all things happen for the good of those that love God, not to just anybody, but especially to those that are called according to God's intended purpose [His will].

Stop and think for a moment: Every detail of the life of Jesus Christ and His crucifixion took place under the complete control of the not only Jesus but the Spirit of God. Even to the point of what the Kenite chief priest said, that the Holy Spirit placed in his mouth. The chief priest had not intended to say those words, however those words were prophesied a thousand years prior by the prophets. God uses people, nations and things so that His Word, and Will shall be fulfilled according to His purpose.

Romans 8:29 "For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren."

God foreknew them in the first earth age, and their success and love of Him. These are the elect of God and in that first earth age God also predestined them to be similar, or like the image of Jesus Christ {His Son]. In verse 23 we read; "And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body." The "firstfruits" of the Spirit are those that God will intercede in their lives to make these scriptures come to pass. Both the elect and the free will Christians have the firstfruits of the Spirit, when we are in the will of God and are in obedience to our Heavenly Father.

Romans 8:30 "Moreover whom He did predestinate, them He also called: and whom He called, them He also justified: and whom He justified, them He also glorified."

God is telling us here why He predestined His elect and how He could do this, and yet still be a fair and just God. When God predestined a person, He also called that person. There is a difference between called and chosen: for many are called, but only few are chosen. When God calls one to do His work, He also judged [justified] that person at the time that they are called.

The time of the judging was in the first earth age, the time of the overthrow of Satan; before the foundation that this flesh age was formed. It was at that time that the Father made those that were predestinated, called and chosen to be made or judged similar to Christ in their compassion for lost souls. In the first earth age they became the "Zadok" of the just, also called "the Elect" of this age of the flesh.

Romans 8:31 "What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?"

God is the God of the whole earth, and His dominion covers not only this earth but the whole universe. God made the stars in the heavens and He controls them all. When Jesus Christ comes to this earth, He will take charge of all dominions on this earth, as KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.

Isaiah 54:6 "For the Lord hath called thee as a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, and a wife of youth, when thou wast refused," saith thy God."

When God called you, He called you when you were an abandon woman. This is looking forward to the time whe the apostacy or great falling away takes place, when the driver of the "rapture wagons" are here on earth gathering the people of the earth to himself. At that time you are not going to be very popular in this world, but the important thing is that you are not ashamed to take a stand, and allow the Spirit of God to speak through you. The "wife of youth are the elect, and every last one of them do understand exactly what is taking place and they will have nothing to do with Satan, the "instead of Christ". The church world at this time will be well established in their traditions, and they will sit as a queen, only they will play the role of the harlot with Satan.

Isaiah 54:7 "For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee."

Though God has forsaken us for just an instant, He will with great love gather every last one of His children that love Him, back to Himself. From the moment that Satan walks the earth in the role of Antichrist, to the instant that you will be called up to give witness before the synagogues of Satan, we are not to give one thought of what we will say ahead of time. During that time there will be some accusations made about you, and that is all well and good; now that you know that it will happen, expect it when it does come. To be forewarned is to be forearmed.

Once you understand the Word which is our Father's plan, this will not bother you as one of God's elect. Those that are sealed with the Word of God in their foreheads, are protected by God throughout this reign of the "instead of Christ". Know in your heart and mind that God is keeping a recod of those that make the accusations against you, because God is a God of vengeance, and the time is coming when all accounts will be settled. God will always protect you, even when you can't see it.

Isaiah 54:8 "In a little wrath I hid My face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee, saith the Lord thy Redeemer."

Though for a short while in this age of the flesh, God hid Himself from us. Those thousands of years that mark our times and age, it is but a moment in the eyes of God. Then after this age of the flesh is over, and the time of the Millennium age is finished, We will see and be the partakers of God's mercies for all eternity. This is a promise that He is making to each of us.

There are two ways to look at this, and many will not understand this. Because of what happened before the foundations of this earth, God set up His plan whereby each soul had to be born innocent of the first earth age, which is to say "born from above", they do not remember. The elect were then left alone from the time of their birth, until the time that God would call each of them to do whatever task that He had for them. This time frame is only an instant, a moment to our heavenly Father. During this time you would be left without the knowledge that you possessed from that first earth age. That is why God would say; "I call these things to your remembrance."

The book of Jude tells us what God has reserved for those souls, or angels that refused to come down from above, and be born of woman as God's plan requires. But instead they left their first habitation and came to earth to use the daughters of men for their own play things. Each of them will be set aside and held for the day of judgment, when they like Satan will be destroyed by hell fire.

Jude 6 "And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, He hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day."

This is what is confusing to many when they read passages like John 3:16, where "born from above", has been changed by the translators to "born again". The souls or angels that refused to be born from above, born into the world of the flesh through the womb of a woman have no hope of salvation.

Jude 7 "Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them, in like manner giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire."

Friend, it is a fearful thing to play around with God's plan. Even though the minds of mankind in the flesh simply cannot remember those things of the first earth age, nor why they were born of woman, that plan is more real than the cup of coffee that you drink. It will come to pass exactly as it is written, whether we like it or not.

Hebrews 10:31 "It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God."

Hebrews 10:32 "But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of affliction;"

Hebrews 10:33 "Partly, whilst ye were made a gazingstock both by reproaches and afflictions; and partly, whilst ye became companions of them that were so used."

This is why, that to many that first hear the truth of God's Word, it clicks in their mind and they can't explain it but they can tell the truth from a lie when it comes to God's Word. We grab it and hang on to those truths that we know to be a truthful report. Then once God pulls you back into His fold, He promises you that from that time forth, never again for all eternity will your knowledge of events be taken from you.

Isaiah 54:9 "For this is as the waters of Noah unto Me: for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth; so have I sworn that I would not be wroth with thee, nor rebuke thee."

Remember what God promised Noah in Genesis 8, when he and his family came forth out of the ark after the flood.

Genesis 8:18 "And Noah went forth, and his sons, and his wife and his sons' wives with him:"

Genesis 8:19 "Every beast, every creeping thing, and every fowl, and whatsoever creepeth upon the earth, after their kinds, went forth out of the ark."

Genesis 8:20 "And Noah builded an altar unto the Lord; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the alter."

Genesis 8:21 "And the Lord smelled a sweet savour; and the Lord said in His heart, "I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake; for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I gaain smite any more evry thing living, as I have done. "

God made a covenant with Noah that a flood would never come upon the earth again to destroy as it did in Noah's day. Then God gave us a reminder of that covenant or promise that He made with Noah.

Genesis 9:11 "And I will establish My covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth."

Genesis 9:12 "And God said, "This is the token of the covenant which I make between Me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations:"

Notice that the covenant that God made with Noah is perpetual, as long as there is a flesh man or woman, or creature living on the face of the earth. When Jesus Christ comes at the seventh trumpet, all flesh will end and all souls will be changed instantly into their new incorruptible bodies that never age nor get sick.

Genesis 9:13 "I do set My bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between Me and the earth."

Genesis 9:14 "And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:"

This bow is the rainbow that we see when the sun hits the clouds after a rain storm. That rainbow is God's covenant you you personally.

Genesis 9:15 "And I will remember My covenant, which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destrou all flesh."

The subject in Isaiah 54:9 is the abandonment by God of His people. God is telling you that just as that rainbow became a promise and everlasting covenant between God and Noah, that same rainbow is also used as an seal to every other everlasting covenant that he makes within His Word.

Genesis 9:16 "And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, and I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth."

God has promised you that once you have found Him, and by faith been brought to Him, He is never going to leave you again. In the near future, when that wrath of God is poured out on this earth, you have that immunity against the spiritual darts and confusion that Satan will bring upon the entire earth. The vaccine that gives us the protection is the Holy Spirit, and the protection is in our minds. For the elect of God, it has already been earn in that first earth age, and the payment is made in the flesh age. This may be confusing to you and if it is, don't worry about it.

Isaiah 54:10 :For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but My kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of My peace be removed," saith the Lord That hath mercy on thee."

The "mountains" are the nations of the world, and the "hills" are the tiny nations. God is telling you here that He is making a peace covenant with Him when all the nations both big and small depart from Him, to follow Satan, the instead of Christ. During the tribulation of Satan, which is the great deception of the whole world, you have nothing to fear of God because He will protect you when you have placed His seal, or Word in your mind. So forget about being afraid of the unknown as all the confusion is taking place.

God is telling us to get out of the dust and trubulation that is going to take place, and sit like the queen and observe as His prophesies come to pass.

Isaiah 54:11 "O thou afflicted, tossed with tempest, and not comforted, behold, I will lay thy stones with fair colour, and lay thy foundations with sapphires."

In the words "fair colours", it comes from the colors that come from the stones that are used to make you beautiful. Today we would compare it with mascara [make up], that you would put around eyes to make them more beautiful. This is an idiom whereby God is telling us that the dressings that He puts around you, will make you far more beautiful than what you can do to yourself. This is not referring to painting us up like a bunch of harlots, but is in reference to the new Millennium temple, and the foundations of that new city of Jerusalem.

Isaiah 54:12 "And I will make thy windows of agates, and thy gates of carbuncles, and all thy borders of pleasant stones."

In that Millennium age when we are continually with Jesus Christ, it is going to be real nice. There is nothing that we can compare it to today, but at that time God is going to pour all of His mercies out upon us. Those that are tossed in a tempest during the time of Antichrist will completely forget whatever discomfort they experienced in the flesh, when each are experiencing the pleasures of the Millennium kingdom.

Isaiah 54:13 "And all thy children shall be taught of the Lord; and great shall be the peace of thy children."

The time when "all thy children shall be taught of the Lord" is the time of the Millennium age. The peace is great at this time because Satan and all the evil rudiments of this earth age of the flesh will be gone. Satan is in the pit, and all souls will be in their incorruptible bodies that will seen no aging and defects that our flesh bodies have. God will place within all our minds the ability to understand and know exactly the Word of God. There will be no one to bring on their traditions during this time of teaching.

Then once all of God's children have been completely instructed and disciplined, and Satan is released at the end of the Millennium age for a short season and they follow him then, there is no forgiveness for them. Then comes the great white throne judgment and there will be no forgiveness for their acts then, but they will go into the fire and turned into ashes.

Revelation 20:4 "And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them; and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the withness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years."

Revelation 20:5 "But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection."

Those taking part in the first resurrection are those, that because they were sealed in their minds before the coming of Satan [the instead of Christ], did not worship him in any manner. They did not take his name, nor number in their hands or in their minds, which is to say "their foreheads". This is to say that they did not think him to be Jesus Christ, and thus they did not worship any form of Satan or his system. To take Satan the Antichrist's mark in their hands is to give service to him in any manner. Not even to bid them well when they are at your door-step. By serving Christ in this manner you will take part in this first resurrection at the sounding of the seventh trumpet.

Revelation 20:6 "Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second heath hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years."

This "thousand years" is the Millennium age. It is this period of time that Ezekiel chapters 40-48 are all about. We will not go into this period now. Once you, by your faith in Jesus Christ seek repentance in His name, you will find that peace of God, because He has promised it to you. Though you and I will witness the judgments at the end of this earth age, and those at the end of the Millennium age, we will not take part in it, for judgment to God elect and those with the seal of God in their mind is the receiving of our rewards.

Isaiah 54:14 "In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near thee."

The position that you hold in the Millennium age, and all the righteousness that you possess will be for all the right reasons. Even in this earth age of the flesh, it doesn't matter what system comes into being, you simply don't have to worry. God has spelled out exactly what shall take place before His coming, and those signs and events must come to pass first. As you and I watch those things happening before our eyes, we should not be in fear or terror, for God is allowing them to come to pass. Each of those things that are happening from Africa to Jerusalem; from Russia to the United States are coming to pass in fulfillment to God's prophesies through His prophets.

Learning those events, and expecting them to happen right on time, is what is called being "sealed in your forehead". Those that are sealed are those that have the protection of God over them when the entire world chases after Satan.

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."

This is a promise from God to you, and every time you see the rainbow in the clouds, that is a sign of the eternal covenant of all promises that God has made with His own. You may have been away from the truth from God's Word from birth to the very instant that God's Spirit knocked on the door of your mind, and the truth came into your mind and heart. At that moment God's promises to you, His elect, picked up and and will continue throughout all eternity.

Isaiah 54:15 "Behold, they shall surely gather together, but not by Me: whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall for thy sake."

This is a promise right from our Heavenly Father to you, one of God's elect that are sealed with the truth of His Word in your mind. He is telling you that He will gather together every one of Satan's system against you. But God is telling you that when this is happening to you, He is not the one doing this to you. However He is assuring us that everyone that takes part in the spiritual action against you will answer to God for anything that they do to you. God is on our side, and If He be on our side, who could be against us.

Romans 8:31 "What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? "

Romans 8:32 "He that spared not His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things."

Romans 8:33 "Who shall lay any thing to the charge fo God's elect? It is God that justifieth;:"

God is telling us to keep our peace and wait patiently for His return. God will protect you while in this earth age of the flesh, and those that plot to do evil against us, God will take the vengeance far better that we could plan in our own minds. He will do it in a manner that fits right into His plans. God is telling us that we can count of the entire world going against us, and we can count on it. Especially when Satan will be right here on earth doing and leading the planning, and all those milk-toast Christians are going to sputter the lies of Satan to deceive you. When that time comes, what they say is not by Me, God says, so prepare yourselves to accept the confusion that the will bring against you.

That is why we are not to argue with them, for they will win. Satan knows the Word of God far better than the human mind can contain, but when we are confronted by them, all we are to say is the Lord rebuke thee. So next time it seems that you are having an extra hard time, keep this in mind. Remember that the final generation of the parable of the fig tree started way back in 1948. We should all expect some deceptive conflict coming our way in these days. Not only by the world, but also by family. God is on our side right through to the end of this age of the flesh.

Isaiah 54:16 "Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy."

God is reminding us that are sealed in our minds [the elect], that he has created the person that has developed the forms of idolatry, and He has also created the things or instruments that they will use to bring that idolatry against you. Not only did God create those people and idolatrious forms, but He also created the devil, the destroyer that will lead them all against the elect. God is telling us to take this warning seriously, all of them are going to come against you. God created all things, and He also control what is going to take place. He sets up the kings and nations of the earth, and He is also the One that brings them down.

Ezekiel 28:15 "Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee."

Satan is a created being with a soul just like all man. However Satan was made perfect in the ways that he was created for. When pride caused Satan to try to over throw God, God took him down and in His judgment of Satan, Satan was condamned to death. This is why he is referred to as "the son of perdition". "Perdition" means "to perish", and Satan's punishment will be carried out on Judgment day at the close of the Millennium age.

In the mean time God is using Satan, and those fallen angels that set themselves to following Satan to test and try His other children. To test them to show their love of God, or to chose the rejection of Jesus Christ. God is honest with you. He has told us Who will come against us, and why. God set up His plan and revealed that plan through His Word. It is given to us in every detail, and we know in advance that when Satan does come, God will be there to protect you from those forces. There is no reason to fear anything that Satan brings, because God has given us power over all of those forces.

God is telling you that this dude, the devil is not some space monster to fear. God is saying, "I made him and I control that being". I set the limits that Satan can do, and what he can not do. Our power that we have over Satan and his realm is completely, "in the name of Christ." Again, this is what we will face in our generation.

Isaiah 54:17 "No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of Me," saith the Lord."

Did you get that? There is no weapon that they can create and make in any form can prosper against you. Not by religious means, spiritual or physical, they shall not prosper against any of God's elect. This is your inherited right by God Himself to all you personally to condemn every person that shall speak out against you. For when you are in the Lord, saved by your faith in Jesus Christ, and have repented of your sins in Jesus name, you are a soldier of God, and have the power that God has vested in you.

You inherited what rights God gives you for just being one of God's children. The inheritance is what is given to a person for being part of the family, however when a inheritance is given you must claim your inheritance. To claim what is rightfully yours, it is important that you know what is in the will, and God's Will is His Word.

Those that speak out against those that are of the inheritance, in most cases do it in ignorance, and the day is coming when the shall be ashamed of every word that they spoke out against you. Don't worry, in the Millennium age they shall be taught, and the love that you have for your family that goes against you hear, will be to help them then when it will be up to you. Things will be different in the Millennium age.

Ezekiel 44:23 "And they shall teach My People the difference between the holy and profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean."

The false teachers and all their idolatrous forms and traditions will be gone in the Millennium age. Every person will be able to discern between the unclean and the clean without being taught. However, there will be much discipline which is the putting into action, that which you know to be true. The teachers and judges are the elect that held true against Satan in this flesh age.

Ezekial 44:24 "And in controversy they shall stand in judgment; and they shall judge it according to My judgments: and they shall keep My laws and My statutes in all Mine assemblies; and they shall hallow My sabbaths."

When problems do arise it will be the elect, the sealed of God that will settle the disputes. The matters will all be settled in accordance with the laws and statutes of God.

Ezekiel 44:25 "And they shall come at no dead person to defile themselves: but for father, or for mother, or for son, or for daughter, for brother, or for sister that hath had no husband, they may defile themselves. "

The same family members that turn you over to the Antichrist, Satan, in this age of the flesh, will be the ones that you will gladly defile yourselves for, to prod them along into keeping the laws and statutes in the Millennium age. Though you have gained your rewards of immortality for standing against Satan in this earth age, they have not. They must earn their immortality by their works in the thousand year Millennium age, and they can only receive it at Judgment day. That day is after the Millennium age, and after Satan is released for a short season to try them again before judgment. Those that are dead, are spiritually dead and their spiritual live comes after judgment day.

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."

Those that received their rewards by their faith in this age of the flesh, received their salvation rewards at the sounding of the seventh trumpet, at the second coming of Jesus Christ. This is why only the spiritually dead are judged by their works. There is no faith required in the Millennium age, God will plant full understanding in the minds of everyone, He will be there in person and there will be no innocent, sick or mentally ill.

Revelation 20:14 "And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death."

The second death is the death of your very soul. It is when God shall turn it to ashes from within, and even the memory of you will be erased from your loved ones in eternaity. They won't cry over you, because there will be nothing to show that you had ever existed. Why would parents cry over children that they never had.

Revelation 20:15 "And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire."
