Genesis 3

The Fall of Man

1 Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?”

2 The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, 3 but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’ ”

4 “You will not surely die,” the serpent said to the woman. 5 “For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

6 When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.

“Who will be God?”….that is the age old question that has taken place since the BEGINNING OF THE WORLD……..and even though man has fallen due to coming to the wrong conclusion on it, nothing much has changed. In fact, seeing that it’s the end times, man has gradually become worse & worse………due trying to incorrectly answer that question. Whether through COMMUNISM, MARXIXM, SOCIALISM, HUMANISM, EVOLUTION, and any other thing you can think of (and to see a PREVIOUS POST ON THE ISSUE, go to https://emissary7.wordpress.com/2007/10/21/evolution-verses-creationism-not-a-hard-choice-is-it/

And the results have been nothing but more chaos/disorder in our world as a RESULT.

Psalm 14

For the director of music. Of David.

1 The fool [a] says in his heart,
“There is no God.”
They are corrupt, their deeds are vile;
there is no one who does good.
2 The LORD looks down from heaven
on the sons of men
to see if there are any who understand,
any who seek God.
3 All have turned aside,
they have together become corrupt;
there is no one who does good,
not even one.
4 Will evildoers never learn—
those who devour my people as men eat bread
and who do not call on the LORD ?
5 There they are, overwhelmed with dread,
for God is present in the company of the righteous.
6 You evildoers frustrate the plans of the poor,
but the LORD is their refuge.
7 Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion!
When the LORD restores the fortunes of his people,
let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad!

Ecclesiastes 9:3-4

3 This is the evil in everything that happens under the sun: The same destiny overtakes all. The hearts of men, moreover, are full of evil and there is madness in their hearts while they live, and afterward they join the dead………

And with that said, here are some videos a friend gave me that perfectly illustrate that. Whenever it is said that man is “inherently good”, realize that’s a BOLD FACE LIE. For in a society that ignores God, everything—-from the TOP DOWN—is DESTINED TO BECOME CORRUPT. And IMHO, these videos do an EXCELLENT JOB OF SHOWING JUST THAT. They show how corrupt men (paticularly in government) have become in these last days……and illustrate many of the things within our society that have taken place for ages that most people never realize. If you disagree, cool……..but at least consider what is said, and share your thougts later as to why. And above all else, DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH ON THE ISSUE.

Going along with that, here are some more videos on the subjectt……. Revealed in this hidden
camera incursion into the Grove
and practiced by its members, all men,
including both Presidents Bush,

Going along with that, here’s a video THAT IS MOST INTRIGUING.

Dr. John Coleman is a former intelligence agent of British MI6. He rips the lid off the conspiratorial group which knows NO national boundaries, is ABOVE the law of ALL countries and controls every aspect of politics, commerce, religion, industry, banking, insurance, mining, and even the drug trade. Learn how this small elite group who are answerable to NO ONE, except its members, have pulled the strings on ALL major world events and why, until now, few people have even been aware of its existence, let alone power, in manipulating the affairs of the entire WORLD. All of these members are revealed, including all of the corporations, government agencies and various movements which “they” have developed and control to further their own aims for WORLD DOMINATION.

On the issue of the EXPLOTATION of CHILDREN AND THE MANY WAYS IN WHICH GOVERNMENT (and many officials within) has had a HEAVY HAND INVOLVED WITH IT:

US Politicians Pedophile Ring –
Conspiracy of Silence, The Franklin Cover-Up
A documentary listed for viewing in
TV Guide Magazine was to be aired
on the Discovery Channel, on May 3, 1994.
This documentary exposed a network of
religious leaders & Washington politicians
who flew children to Washington D.C.
for sex orgies.Many children suffered the indignity of
wearing nothing but their underwear & a
number displayed on a piece of
cardboard hanging from their necks when
being auctioned off to foreigners in
Las Vegas, Nevada & Toronto, Canada.At the last minute before airing, unknown
congressmen threatened the TV Cable industry
with restrictive legislation if this documentary
was aired. Almost immediately, the rights to the
documentary were purchased by unknown persons
who had ordered all copies destroyed.A copy of this videotape was furnished
anonymously to former Nebraska state
senator & attorney John De Camp who
made it available to retired FBI Agent
Ted L. Gunderson. While the video quality
is not top grade, this tape is a blockbuster
in what is revealed by the participants involved.

Besides the fact that mi madre is from Panama (and even heard from her many things regarding the war down there & how it was stagged), this video had many more interesting information on the issue. As another said on the issue, “My nation kills thousands of innocence civilians for the stake of installing our own dictator in Panama. So our corporations can go in & steal natural resources from the people of that country.”

On the Issue of MIND CONTROL BY THE GOVERNMENT & Brice TayloR.

The True Story
Ted Gunderson, a retired 27 year veteran FBI
special agent who worked in the L.A. district
with over 700 agents under his command, shows
on video documented proof of a CIA splinter
group known as the Finders, who, according to
a U.S. Customs document, were involved in a
kidnappping scheme for child sexual slavery.

Brice Taylor is the highest level, healed
survivor of MKULTRA trauma-based mind control,
ever to go public. Beginning in 1985, her healing
journey within allowed her to discover the truth
that set her free, indeed a truth that can set us
all free!

Gene “Chip” Tatum, during his twenty two years
as a deep cover CIA and DIA operative, aw or
participated in a remarkable series of covert
operations. Foremost in his mind are the years
1986-92, when he operated for a group he called
Pegasus. This group operated on behalf of the
US and other governments undertaking tasks
that ranged from narcotic smuggling to
assassinations.

Part 1

On Bill Moyer’s 1987 scathing critique of the criminal subterfuge carried out by the Executive Branch of the United States Government to carry out operations which are clearly contrary to the wishes and values of the American people.

On who killed John F. KENNEDY

ON GENOCIDE BY SANCTIONS. Over 1.5 million Iraqi’s died as a result of the sanctions alone. Ramsey Clark goes into the hospitals and talks with Iraqi doctors, who say many of these deaths could have been prevented if they had medicine to give to the children. The United States bombed out their way of life; their water treatment facilities, food delivery systems, sewage treatment facilities, electrical systems, their mass communication facilities and more. And American’s were lead to believe that this was a good thing.

On the issue of 911, THE GREAT CONSIPIRACY & WHETHER OR NOT GOVERNMENT WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR IT OR NOT:

On the issue of the Iraq War and the issue that NO ONE WISHES TO TALK ABOUT: The OIL FACTOR

Today, 6.5 billion humans depend entirely on oil for food, energy, plastics & chemicals. Population growth is on a collision course with the inevitable decline in oil production. George Bush’s “war on terror” happens where 3/4 of the world’s remaining oil and natural gas is located.

ON HEALTHCARE & THE CONFUSION BEHIND WHY PEOPLE ARE GETTING WORSE & NOT BETTER

It is estimated that in America last year, nearly $2 trillion was spent on health care — and virtually all that money was spent on treating disease.1 Despite this massive expenditure on treatment, more Americans are sicker than ever before with diseases that are largely preventable: heart disease, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, fibromyalgia, and depression, to name a few.Each year more money is spent on treatment, mere patchwork, even though it has become crystal-clear that treatments do NOT enable you to live a longer, better life. So why is the amount of money being spent on prevention just a pittance compared with the amount spent on treatment?The answer is simple — when you are sick it is highly profitable to various giant corporations. When you are well, it doesn’t profit them much at all.

On the truth of the CREATION/BIRTH OF THE CONCEPT OF CORPORATIONS, AND THE REALITY OF THE FEDERAL RESERVE SYSTEM:

Opening sequence with corporate entities looking in on office workers.
The beginning of the modern corporation is detailed starting with Ray Anderson, the CEO of Interface, the world’s largest modular carpet manufacturer. He explains that the corporation began in 1712, when Thomas Newcomen invented a steam driven pump to increase the productivity and output of coal mines. The desire to increase product output per man hour, be it steel, pens, or computer chips, led to the modern corporation and the modern industrialized world. Noam Chomsky then explains the historical function of a corporation. In the past, individual states in the United States issued charters which stipulated what, where, and for how long a corporation could last in order to protect the public good. Richard Grossman states that in early America, the common viewpoint was that the corporation is a subordinate entity which is considered a gift from the people to help the general public. According to Howard Zinn, this all changed after the American Civil War, when the Fourteenth Amendment was passed to help insure the rights of former black slaves. Corporate lawyers saw this as an opportunity to increase their powers considerably, by claiming that a corporation is in fact a sort of person who is being deprived of their rights. Mary Zepernick of the Program on Corporations, Law and Democracy further states that between 1890 and 1910 there were 307 cases brought to the Supreme Court dealing with the 14th amendment. Out of the 307 only 19 cases were made by African Americans, while the other 288 came from corporate lawyers seeking “equal” rights for their corporate entities.

On the issue of – BlackOps/Presidential Secrets, & – The Truth – Secret Societies & The Military

On the issue of TERROR STORMS,

Criminal elements inside governments.
Throughout history have carried out
terror attacks against their own
populations as a pretext to enslave
them.TerrorStorm reveals how, in the
last hundred years, Western leaders
have repeatedly murdered their own
citizens while posing as their saviors.
In TerrorStorm you will discover that
September 11th, the attacks of 7/7
in London, and many other terrorist
events were self-inflicted wounds.
You will witness British Special
Forces troops caught in the act of
staging terror attacks in Iraq and
see official US government documents
laying out plans to hijack passenger
planes by remote control.
You will learn how the Reichstag fire,
the Gulf of Tonkin, and the US-backed
Iranian coup of 1953 are all
interconnected false-flag terror events.
This powerful documentary explores the
mindset of the average brainwashed
Westerner. It delves deeply in to
the systems of control which have
been scientifically-crafted to imprison
their minds and keep their eyes closed
to the realities of the world around them.

Going along with that, here’s one entitled “The SHOCK DOCTRINE”. Basically, This desire for godlike powers of creation is precisely why free-market ideologues are so drawn to crises and disasters. Non-apocalyptic reality is simply not hospitable to their ambitions. For 35 years, what has animated Friedman’s counter-revolution is an attraction to a kind of freedom available only in times of cataclysmic change – when people, with their stubborn habits and insistent demands, are blasted out of the way – moments when democracy seems a practical impossibility. Believers in the shock doctrine are convinced that only a great rupture – a flood, a war, a terrorist attack – can generate the kind of vast, clean canvases they crave. It is in these malleable moments, when we are psychologically unmoored and physically uprooted, that these artists of the real plunge in their hands and begin their work of remaking the world.

On the issue of OUR NATION BEING UNDER SEIGE:

The Technology to Take Over The World Exists
Prepare to be instantly propelled into a world dominated by spying, tracking, and control as you go behind enemy lines drawn in our own backyards. Through the research and personal testimony of over a dozen internationally distinguished authors, journalists, doctors, and military experts you will begin to understand the massive and ceaseless control projected onto an unsuspecting populace by a government that may have finally crossed the line from a representative republic to a fascist empire.From the USA PATRIOT Act and the blatant disregard for the Bill of Rights to the outright tracking of every human being on the planet earth, you will be stunned by what the U.S. government has planned for American citizens.

On the reality that the world we live in is truly like the MATRIX, in which most people are simply living DECIEVED & UNAWRE OF THE TRUTH!!! In this video, Eric Williams exposes how our world and 9/11 really is a matrix of lies and deceit.It reveils the parallel of symbols used in Nazism, Fascism, and the US. Was the US intended to be a fascism nation for the beginning?

Going along with that, this woman does some pretty intriguing information on in her series “The End of America”, which talks about the parallels between the Bush Administration’s tactics and more… those of fascist dictatorships of the last century.
The same language, images, manipulation that would-be despots have used in the past to break down existing democracies are being employed now. From Italy in the 1920s, Germany in the 1930s, and on and on, Wolf finds that all these despots do that same things. Mussolini created the blueprint, Hitler followed suit, Stalin studied Hitler and these methods just get passed down to the next generation of dictators throughout the world. Wolf has summarized their method is ten points:
1. Invoke a terrifying internal and external enemy
2. Create a gulag
3. Develop a thug caste
4. Set up an internal surveillance system
5. Harass citizens’ groups
6. Engage in arbitrary detention and release
7. Target key individuals
8. Control the press
9. Dissent equals treason
10. Suspend the rule of law (
less)
On the issue of the FALL OF THE USA, IT’D MERGER WITH OTHER NATIONS………AND THE NEW WORLD ORDER THAT IS QUICKLY COMING…..http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vu4H1gIVpY4

AGAIN, DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH ON THE ISSUE…….and be aware of the TIMES WE LIVE IN. FOR WE CAN NO LONGER AFFORD TO KEEP OUR HEADS IN THE SAND. CONNECT THE DOTS……BUT do not attempt to do so IN YOUR OWN WILLPOWER/ABILITY, NOR FORGET THE ADMONITION WE’VE BEEN GIVEN IN SCRIPTURE TO KEEP THE AUTORITIES (including those who may be CORRUPT) in PRAYER.

Consider this article that John Macarther gave on the issue:

· http://www.gty.org/Resources/Articles/2395

After investigating that article by Macarther, I was HIGHLY convicted. Even with officials I may not like, it’s dangerous to not be careful in the ways I speak out against their actions.Though there were many things I found to be of interest, one thing that struck out to me was this:

  • Titus 3:1-2Remind them to be subject to rulers, to authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good deed, to malign no one, to be uncontentious, gentle, showing every consideration for all men. (vv. 1-2)

In Macarthers Words, “As we have the scriptural duty of not maligning anyone, not even those unbelievers who are most antagonistic toward biblical standards. Titus 3:2 begins with Paul’s command “to malign no one,” and refers to cursing, slandering, and treating with contempt. In fact the Greek term rendered “malign” is the one from which we derive the English word blasphemy. We can never use such speech with a righteous motive. “It is sad that many believers today speak scornfully of politicians and other public figures. When they do that, they actually manifest a basic disregard of their responsibility toward authority and hinder God’s redemptive plan. In another of Paul’s pastoral letters, he urges us to pray for everyone’s salvation, even for that of those who occupy official positions of authority (1 Timothy 2:1-4).”

  • 1 Timothy 2
  • Instructions on Worship
  • 1I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone— 2for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. 3This is good, and pleases God our Savior, 4who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.

Going back to Macarthers commentary on Titus 3, “Paul goes on in verse 2 to mention two more Christian duties. First, he reminds us that we must be friendly and peaceful toward the lost, not belligerent and quarrelsome. In the ungodly, postmodern world we live in, it’s easy to condemn those who contribute to the culture’s demise and write them off as corrupt sinners who will never change. If God’s love for the world was so broad and intense that His Son died for a multitude of sinners (John 3:16), how can we who have received that redeeming grace be harsh and unloving toward those who have not yet received it?

Until God is pleased to save an individual, he or she is going to behave like an unbeliever, and it is wrong for us, meanwhile, to treat them contemptuously for acting according to their nature.”“Secondly, Paul reminds us that we must be “gentle,” a word in the Greek that means being fair, moderate, and forbearing toward others. Some have translated this term “sweet reasonableness,” a definition denoting an attitude that does not hold grudges but gives others the benefit of the doubt.”

Of course the list of Scriptures one could bring up on the subject could go on, but I thought that Macarther had some very SOLID POINTS. I’ve had to check my own attitude when it comes to politicians & my being distainful of them for acting according to the ways of the World……& I’ve also had to check myself when it seems I’m spending more time speaking against them (& enjoying it too) than actually sincerly praying for them. More often than not, I think many Christians believe that our words have more power in the lives of politicians that our prayers before the Father, as I Timothy 2 seems to indicate……

& I’d be a fool to belive God wouldn’t hold me to account for that.

  • 1 Peter 2:10-2010
  • Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.11Dear friends, I urge you, as aliens and strangers in the world, to abstain from sinful desires, which war against your soul. 12Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us.
  • Submission to Rulers and Masters

  • 13Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every authority instituted among men: whether to the king, as the supreme authority, 14or to governors, who are sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to commend those who do right. 15For it is God’s will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish men.16Live as free men, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as servants of God.17Show proper respect to everyone: Love the brotherhood of believers, fear God, honor the king.18Slaves, submit yourselves to your masters with all respect, not only to those who are good and considerate, but also to those who are harsh. 19For it is commendable if a man bears up under the pain of unjust suffering because he is conscious of God. 20But how is it to your credit if you receive a beating for doing wrong and endure it? But if you suffer for doing good and you endure it, this is commendable before God.

Psalm 2

·        1 Why do the nations conspire [a]
and the peoples plot in vain? 2 The kings of the earth take their stand
and the rulers gather together
against the LORD
and against his Anointed One. [b] 3 “Let us break their chains,” they say,
“and throw off their fetters.” 4 The One enthroned in heaven laughs;
the Lord scoffs at them. 5 Then he rebukes them in his anger
and terrifies them in his wrath, saying, 6 “I have installed my King [c]
on Zion, my holy hill.” 7 I will proclaim the decree of the LORD :
He said to me, “You are my Son [d] ;
today I have become your Father. [e] 8 Ask of me,
and I will make the nations your inheritance,
the ends of the earth your possession. 9 You will rule them with an iron scepter [f] ;
you will dash them to pieces like pottery.” 10 Therefore, you kings, be wise;
be warned, you rulers of the earth. 11 Serve the LORD with fear
and rejoice with trembling. 12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry
and you be destroyed in your way,
for his wrath can flare up in a moment.
Blessed are all who take refuge in him.

·        Psalm 46

·         For the director of music. Of the Sons of Korah. According to Alamoth. A song. [a]

·        1 God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble. 2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, 3 though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.
Selah 4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
the holy place where the Most High dwells. 5 God is within her, she will not fall;
God will help her at break of day. 6 Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;
he lifts his voice, the earth melts. 7 The LORD Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.
Selah 8 Come and see the works of the LORD,
the desolations he has brought on the earth. 9 He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth;
he breaks the bow and shatters the spear,
he burns the shields [b] with fire. 10 “Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.” 11 The LORD Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.
Selah

·        Proverbs 16:4

·       
The LORD works out everything for his own ends— even the wicked for a day of disaster.

  • Ecclesiastes 3:16-17 16

  • ·        And I saw something else under the sun:
    In the place of judgment—wickedness was there,
    in the place of justice—wickedness was there. 17 I thought in my heart,
    “God will bring to judgment
    both the righteous and the wicked,
    for there will be a time for every activity,
    a time for every deed.”

·        Matthew 24:4-13

·        4Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. 5For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Christ,[a]‘ and will deceive many. 6You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. 7Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. 8All these are the beginning of birth pains. 9“Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. 10At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, 11and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. 12Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, 13but he who stands firm to the end will be saved.

·        John 16:32-33 32

·        “But a time is coming, and has come, when you will be scattered, each to his own home. You will leave me all alone. Yet I am not alone, for my Father is with me. 33“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

·        Romans 8:28-43

·         More Than Conquerors

·        28And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him,[a] who[b] have been called according to his purpose. 29For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. 30And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified. 31What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? 33Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. 34Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. 35Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36As it is written:
“For your sake we face death all day long;
we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”[c] 37No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[d] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

·        1 John 4

·         Test the Spirits

·        1Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, 3but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world. 4You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. 5They are from the world and therefore speak from the viewpoint of the world, and the world listens to them.

·        1 John 5:3-6 3

·        This is love for God: to obey his commands. And his commands are not burdensome, 4for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. 5Who is it that overcomes the world? Only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God. 6This is the one who came by water and blood—Jesus Christ. He did not come by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth.

·        Revelation 18

·        1After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven. He had great authority, and the earth was illuminated by his splendor. 2With a mighty voice he shouted:
“Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great!
She has become a home for demons
and a haunt for every evil[a] spirit,
a haunt for every unclean and detestable bird.
3For all the nations have drunk
the maddening wine of her adulteries.
The kings of the earth committed adultery with her,
and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.” 4Then I heard another voice from heaven say:
“Come out of her, my people,
so that you will not share in her sins,
so that you will not receive any of her plagues;
5for her sins are piled up to heaven,
and God has remembered her crimes.
6Give back to her as she has given;
pay her back double for what she has done.
Mix her a double portion from her own cup.
7Give her as much torture and grief
as the glory and luxury she gave herself.
In her heart she boasts,
‘I sit as queen; I am not a widow,
and I will never mourn.’
8Therefore in one day her plagues will overtake her:
death, mourning and famine.
She will be consumed by fire,
for mighty is the Lord God who judges her. 9“When the kings of the earth who committed adultery with her and shared her luxury see the smoke of her burning, they will weep and mourn over her. 10Terrified at her torment, they will stand far off and cry:
” ‘Woe! Woe, O great city,
O Babylon, city of power!
In one hour your doom has come!’ 11“The merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her because no one buys their cargoes any more— 12cargoes of gold, silver, precious stones and pearls; fine linen, purple, silk and scarlet cloth; every sort of citron wood, and articles of every kind made of ivory, costly wood, bronze, iron and marble; 13cargoes of cinnamon and spice, of incense, myrrh and frankincense, of wine and olive oil, of fine flour and wheat; cattle and sheep; horses and carriages; and bodies and souls of men. 14“They will say, ‘The fruit you longed for is gone from you. All your riches and splendor have vanished, never to be recovered.’ 15The merchants who sold these things and gained their wealth from her will stand far off, terrified at her torment. They will weep and mourn 16and cry out:
” ‘Woe! Woe, O great city,
dressed in fine linen, purple and scarlet,
and glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls!
17In one hour such great wealth has been brought to ruin!’ “Every sea captain, and all who travel by ship, the sailors, and all who earn their living from the sea, will stand far off. 18When they see the smoke of her burning, they will exclaim, ‘Was there ever a city like this great city?’ 19They will throw dust on their heads, and with weeping and mourning cry out:
” ‘Woe! Woe, O great city,
where all who had ships on the sea
became rich through her wealth!
In one hour she has been brought to ruin!
20Rejoice over her, O heaven!
Rejoice, saints and apostles and prophets!
God has judged her for the way she treated you.’ ” 21Then a mighty angel picked up a boulder the size of a large millstone and threw it into the sea, and said:
“With such violence
the great city of Babylon will be thrown down,
never to be found again.
22The music of harpists and musicians, flute players and trumpeters,
will never be heard in you again.
No workman of any trade
will ever be found in you again.
The sound of a millstone
will never be heard in you again.
23The light of a lamp will never shine in you again.
The voice of bridegroom and bride
will never be heard in you again.
Your merchants were the world’s great men.
By your magic spell all the nations were led astray.
24In her was found the blood of prophets and of the saints,
and of all who have been killed on the earth.”

·        Revelation 19

·         Hallelujah!

·        1After this I heard what sounded like the roar of a great multitude in heaven shouting:
“Hallelujah!
Salvation and glory and power belong to our God,
2for true and just are his judgments.
He has condemned the great prostitute
who corrupted the earth by her adulteries.
He has avenged on her the blood of his servants.” 3And again they shouted:
“Hallelujah!
The smoke from her goes up for ever and ever.” 4The twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God, who was seated on the throne. And they cried:
“Amen, Hallelujah!” 5Then a voice came from the throne, saying:
“Praise our God,
all you his servants,
you who fear him,
both small and great!” 6Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting:
“Hallelujah!
For our Lord God Almighty reigns.
7Let us rejoice and be glad
and give him glory!
For the wedding of the Lamb has come,
and his bride has made herself ready.
8Fine linen, bright and clean,
was given her to wear.” (Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of the saints.) 9Then the angel said to me, “Write: ‘Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!’ ” And he added, “These are the true words of God.” 10At this I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “Do not do it! I am a fellow servant with you and with your brothers who hold to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”

·         The Rider on the White Horse

·        11I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and makes war. 12His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself. 13He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God. 14The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean. 15Out of his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. “He will rule them with an iron scepter.”[b] He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty. 16On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written:
KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS. 17And I saw an angel standing in the sun, who cried in a loud voice to all the birds flying in midair, “Come, gather together for the great supper of God, 18so that you may eat the flesh of kings, generals, and mighty men, of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, small and great.” 19Then I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies gathered together to make war against the rider on the horse and his army. 20But 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. 21The rest of them were killed with the sword that came out of the mouth of the rider on the horse, and all the birds gorged themselves on their flesh.

·        Revelation 20

·         The Thousand Years

·        1And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain. 2He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years. 3He threw him into the Abyss, and locked and sealed it over him, to keep him from deceiving the nations anymore until the thousand years were ended. After that, he must be set free for a short time. 4I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony for Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or his image and had not received his mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 5(The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended.) This is the first resurrection. 6Blessed and holy are those who have part in the first resurrection. The second death has no power over them, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with him for a thousand years.

·         Satan’s Doom

·        7When the thousand years are over, Satan will be released from his prison 8and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth—Gog and Magog—to gather them for battle. In number they are like the sand on the seashore. 9They marched across the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of God’s people, the city he loves. But fire came down from heaven and devoured them. 10And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

·         The Dead Are Judged

·        11Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. Earth and sky fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. 12And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. 13The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what he had done. 14Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death. 15If anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.

·        Revelation 21

·         The New Jerusalem

·        1Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. 2I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 3And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. 4He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” 5He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” 6He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life. 7He who overcomes will inherit all this, and I will be his God and he will be my son. 8But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.” 9One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues came and said to me, “Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.” 10And he carried me away in the Spirit to a mountain great and high, and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God. 11It shone with the glory of God, and its brilliance was like that of a very precious jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal. 12It had a great, high wall with twelve gates, and with twelve angels at the gates. On the gates were written the names of the twelve tribes of Israel. 13There were three gates on the east, three on the north, three on the south and three on the west. 14The wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. 15The angel who talked with me had a measuring rod of gold to measure the city, its gates and its walls. 16The city was laid out like a square, as long as it was wide. He measured the city with the rod and found it to be 12,000 stadia[c]in length, and as wide and high as it is long. 17He measured its wall and it was 144 cubits[d] thick,[e] by man’s measurement, which the angel was using. 18The wall was made of jasper, and the city of pure gold, as pure as glass. 19The foundations of the city walls were decorated with every kind of precious stone. The first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony, the fourth emerald, 20the fifth sardonyx, the sixth carnelian, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, and the twelfth amethyst.[f] 21The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each gate made of a single pearl. The great street of the city was of pure gold, like transparent glass. 22I did not see a temple in the city, because the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. 23The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp. 24The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their splendor into it. 25On no day will its gates ever be shut, for there will be no night there. 26The glory and honor of the nations will be brought into it. 27Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

·        Revelation 22

·         The River of Life

·        1Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb 2down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. 3No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him. 4They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. 5There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign for ever and ever. 6The angel said to me, “These words are trustworthy and true. The Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, sent his angel to show his servants the things that must soon take place.”

·         Jesus Is Coming

·        7“Behold, I am coming soon! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy in this book.” 8I, John, am the one who heard and saw these things. And when I had heard and seen them, I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel who had been showing them to me. 9But he said to me, “Do not do it! I am a fellow servant with you and with your brothers the prophets and of all who keep the words of this book. Worship God!” 10Then he told me, “Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book, because the time is near. 11Let him who does wrong continue to do wrong; let him who is vile continue to be vile; let him who does right continue to do right; and let him who is holy continue to be holy.” 12“Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done. 13I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. 14“Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. 15Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood. 16“I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you[g] this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.” 17The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life. 18I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book. 19And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book. 20He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon.”
Amen. Come, Lord Jesus. 21The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s people. Amen.
