Signs of an approaching End Time
||Daniel 12:4 But you, O Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book, even to the time of the end. Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.|
||2Peter 3:3-6 First, knowing this, that there will come in the last days scoffers walking according to their own lusts and saying, Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation. For this is hidden from them by their willing it, that the heavens were of old, and the earth out of the water, and through water, being held together by the Word of God, through which the world that then was, being flooded by water, perished.|
||1Timothy 4:1-3 But the Spirit expressly says that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and teachings of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy, being seared in their own conscience, forbidding to marry, saying to abstain from foods which God has created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth.|
||2Timothy 3:1-9 Know this also, that in the last days grievous times will be at hand. For men will be self-lovers, money-lovers, boasters, proud, blasphemers (New Age !), disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, unyielding, false accusers (frivolous lawsuits !), without self-control, savage, despisers of good, traitors, reckless, puffed up, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness, but denying the power of it; even turn away from these. For of these are those who creep into houses and lead captive silly women loaded with sins, led away with different kinds of lusts, ever learning and never able to come to the full knowledge of the truth. But as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so these also resist the truth, men of corrupt mind, reprobate concerning the faith. But they shall proceed no further. For their foolishness shall be plain to all, as theirs also became.|
||Dan 2:42-44 And as the toes of the feet were part of iron and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly brittle. And as you saw iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mix themselves with the seed of men. But they shall not cling to one another, even as iron is not mixed with clay. And in the days of these kings, the God of Heaven shall set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed. And the kingdom shall not be left to other peoples, but it shall crush and destroy all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever.|
||Matthew 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be proclaimed in all the world as a witness to all nations. And then the end shall come.|
For the sons of Israel shall live many days with no king,
and no ruler, and with no sacrifice, and no pillars, and no ephod,
Afterward the sons of Israel shall return
(they have already returned !)
and seek Jehovah their God and David their king.
And they shall fear Jehovah
and His goodness in the ends of the days.
Matthew 24:32-35 Now learn a parable of the fig tree. When its branch is still tender and puts out leaves, you know that summer is near. So you, likewise, when you see all these things, shall know that it (= the things in Matthew 24) is near, at the doors. Truly I say to you, This generation shall not pass until all these things are fulfilled. The heaven and the earth shall pass away, but My Words shall not pass away.
| | Day 0 | ======= + Signing of a treaty that allows daily sacrifices in | God's temple | | Start of Daniel's last week (7 days = 7 years) | * The exact starting time is UNKNOWN, don't try to find | out: | | Mat 24:36 But of that day and hour no one knows, no, | not the angels of Heaven, but only My Father. | --------| * How do we know it has started ? | | Dan 9:26 ...and the end thereof shall be with a flood, | and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. 1260 | And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: days | (= 7 yrs) and in the midst of the week (3.5 yrs) | 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. | | Rev 11:1 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: | and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple | of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein. | But the court which is without the temple leave out, and | measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and | the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and | two months (= 3.5 yrs). | | ---> We know the clock has started ticking when | Temple of God will be built and sacrifices performed | ------- | * How do we know it has started ? --> 2 witnesses | | Rev 11:3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, | and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and | threescore (=1260) days, clothed in sackcloth. | | ---> We know the clock has started ticking when | TWO powerful witnesses of God is "tormenting" | the people on earth (telling them to REPENT is | a torture for most of the people in that day) | | ---> Furthermore, ONE of the witnesses is most likely | the prophet Elijah (may or may not be called by | that name...): | | Mal 4:5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet | before the coming of the great and dreadful | day of the LORD | | I suspect that these 2 witnesses will be against | the signed treaty between the Anti-Christ and Israel | 1260 | days | ------- + (1) Sacrifice in Temple abolished \ / Dan 9:27: in the midst of the week (= 3.5 yrs = 1260 days) \ he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to **cease** Mid / point \ (2) The two witnesses are killed (but will resurrect after / 3.5 days) \ / Rev 11:7: And when they shall have finished their | testimony (= after 1260 days), the beast that ascendeth | out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, | and shall overcome them, and kill them. | | (3) Some people think that a world leader will be killed | and the devil will re-surrect and possess his body | | Rev 13:3 And I saw one of its heads as having been } slain to death, and its deadly wound was healed. | And all the earth marveled after the beast. | | NOTE: this may be the day that the devil is casted out from | heaven... (the devil still have access to God in Job) | So the casting out of Satan, the desecration of the | temple and the killing of the two prophets may all | happen very quickly... probably on the same day. | | Rev 12:13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast | unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought | forth the man child. | | ---> The man child was born BEFORE the devil is cast | out of heaven !!! | | WARNING: if this is the case, then this day will change | the world completely: | | Rev 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. | | ---> These are beings with incredible power. People | on earth will think that the gods have come to | earth. This will lead to the great deception. | The millions of other angels that were cast out | either will have their own bodies or will | possess human ones (maybe this is the real | “Invasion of the Body Snatchers”). It will be | an incredible time for all those living on the | earth. | | NOTE: This scenario will makes sense to the following | comment by Jesus: | | Mat 24:37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall | also the coming of the Son of man be. | | In the days of Noah, fallen angels were on earth: | | Gen 6:4 There were giants in the earth in those days; | and also after that, when the **sons of God** came in | unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to | them, the same became mighty men which were of old, | men of renown. | \ / \ / Mid \ point / ======= + 3.5 yrs | | After this, the world is really in trouble: | | Mark 13:14 But when ye shall see the abomination of | desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing | where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) | then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains | | Some believe that this "abomination" is the Anti-christ | (satan in human form) and he will stand in the Holy of | Holies (the place where God is in the temple - "standing | where he OUGHT NOT") | | Revelation 12:6 seems to say that a remnant of Israel will | be protected from the anti-christ: | | Rev 12:6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where | she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed | her there a thousand two hundred and threescore | (= 1260) days. | | Dan 12:1 And at that time shall Michael stand up, | the great prince which standeth for the children of | thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, | such as never was since there was a nation even to that | same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, | every one that shall be found written in the book. | | This period is ESPECIALLY difficult for the Jews: | | Rev 12:13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast | unto the earth, he persecuted the woman (Israel) | which brought forth the man child. | | This 3.5 yrs has already been shortened for the Jews' sake: | | Mat 24:22 And except those days should be shortened, | there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's | (= Jews which are Gods chosen people) sake those days | shall be shortened. | | These verses indicate that the Anti-christ will target the | Jews in the persecution. The time is ripe indeed; the whole | world; except the US; is anti-Jew today (2005) | | | ======================================================= | | During this time, some Jews will flee to safety: | | Rev 12:14 And to the woman were given two wings of | a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, | into her place, where she is nourished for a time, | and times, and half a time, from the face of the | serpent. | | time = day, times = 2 days, half a time = 1/2 day | Israel is protect for 3.5 years. | | During this 3.5 yrs, the Devil will rule the earth; in | person: | | Rev 13:3 And I saw one of his heads as it were | wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: | and all the world wondered after the beast. | | ---> Some world ruler (beast) will die, but comes | back to life through the power | of Satan (dragon) | | Rev 13:4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave | power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, | saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to | make war with him? | | ---> The world will believe that Satan is god... | | Rev 13:5 And there was given unto him a mouth | speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was | given unto him to continue forty and two months. | | ---> Blasphemy is saying that you are god | | | ========================================================== | | After fighting the Jews, it is the Christians turn to | suffer: | | Rev 12:17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, | and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, | which keep the commandments of God, and have the | testimony of Jesus Christ. | | | | | 2550 | days | ========+ Anti-Christ sets up an ABOMINATION inside the Holy place | (Holy of Holies) | | +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ | When will this happen: | +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ | | Dan 12:11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice | shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh | desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred | and ninety days. | | Daily sacrifices are abolished midway of the 7x360 days | = 1260 days | | So abomination will be set up on 1260+1290 = 2550 days | from the signing of the agreement | | +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ | What is the nature of this abomination ? | +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ | | 2Thes 2:3-4 ...For that Day (= Day of the Lord) | shall not come unless there first comes | a falling away, and the man of sin (AntiChrist) shall | be revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes | and exalts himself above all that is called God, | or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God | in the temple of God, setting himself forth, | that he is God. | ------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------>>>>> I think the Tribulation is now over ------>>>>> God's wrath begins now.... ------>>>>> When God sees the AntiChrist setting himself up as God, ------>>>>> God Himself steps in... ------>>>>> Before God pours out His wrath, the surviving Christians ------>>>>> are "RAPTURED" | | 1Th 4:15 For we say this to you by the Word of the Lord, | that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord | shall not go before those who are asleep. | 1Th 4:16 For the Lord Himself shall descend from Heaven with | a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet | of God. And the dead in Christ shall rise first. | 1Th 4:17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught | up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air. | And so we shall ever be with the Lord. | | Revelation gives us more details of the chronology: | | Rev 11:15 And the seventh angel sounded. And there were | great voices in Heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world | have become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of His Christ. | And He will reign forever and ever. | .. | Rev 15:1 And I saw another sign in Heaven, great and marvelous: | seven angels with the seven last plagues; for in them is filled | up the wrath of God. | | ** The bowl judgements "completes" (is filled up) the wrath of God | | But before these bowls are poured out, we read: | | Rev 15:2 And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire. | And **those who had gotten the victory over the beast, and over | his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name**, | stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. | | ** The Christians who survived the tribulation are now in heaven - | ** "raptured". They are not subjected to the wrath of God. | ** Therefore, no contradiction to: | | 1Th 5:9 For God has not appointed us to wrath, but to | obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ ------------------------------------------------------------------------- | E | God's wrath will be even more terrible than the Tribulation a | God uses natural disasters to punish inhabitants of earth: r | t | earth quakes, sun darkens, moon darkens, meteorides h | hit earth... | Q | See: u | a | Mat 24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days k | shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give e | her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and | the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: | Mat 24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son S | of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of u | the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man n | coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great | glory. D | Mat 24:31 And he shall send his angels with a great a | sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together r | his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven k | to the other. e | n | This corresponds to the trumpet and bowl judgements in | Revelation (just before the sounding of the 7th trumpet) | | ------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------->>> Heed this warning by Jesus: ------------------------------------------------------------------------- | | Mat 24:15 Therefore when you see the abomination of | desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand | in the holy place (whoever reads, let him understand). | Mat 24:16 Then let those in Judea flee into the mountains. | Mat 24:17 Let him on the housetop not come down to take | anything out of his house; | Mat 24:18 nor let him in the field turn back to take his clothes. | Mat 24:19 And woe to those who are with child, and to those | who give suck in those days! | Mat 24:20 But pray that your flight is not in the winter, | nor on the sabbath day; | Mat 24:21 for then shall be great tribulation, such as | has not been since the beginning of the world to this time; | no, nor ever shall be. | | | Luk 21:25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and | in the moon, and in the stars. And on the earth | will be anxiety of nations with perplexity; the sea | and the waves roaring; | Luk 21:26 men fainting from fear, and expecting | those things which have come on the earth. | For the powers of the heavens shall be shaken. | Luk 21:27 And then they shall see the Son of Man | coming in a cloud with power and great glory. | Luk 21:28 And when these things begin to happen, | then look up and lift up your heads, for | your redemption (=gathering of His elect) draws near. | | **** Run like hell when you see this abomination in the Holy of | **** Holies | ++++ Better yet: buy food and water and store them up when you | ++++ see the sacrifices start in the Jewish Temple. | ++++ You have to hide for 45 days... | 45 | days | later | | 2595 | days | ========+ Christ 2nd coming ? - I am not certain, but I do find a very strong | indication in Daniel 12:12; which are supported by Matt 24:30 | | I think this day is the "Day of the Lord" | | I FIRST thought that this was the day when the Judgement | of God begins.... now I think this is the day of REWARD for | a special group of believers !!! | | The Day of Judgement is 1000 yrs AFTER this day. | | --------- | | I come up the day for the Second Coming of Jesus by using: | | *************************************************************** | * Dan 12:12 Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to * | * the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days. * | *************************************************************** | | The FIRST half of the 7x360 is a PEACE TIME. | There is NO effort getting through these 1260 days | | The SECOND half of the 7x360 is the real challenge | So if you get through these 1335 days (with is NOT | quite 3.5x360 days, but longer - due to God's wrath | during the preceeding 45 days (45 days following | after the end of the Tribulation) | | The MOST important clue that I think this is the day of the | Second Coming of Jesus is from: | | Rev 20:4 .... And I saw the souls of those who had | been beheaded for the witness of Jesus and for | the Word of God, and ***who had not worshiped the beast | nor his image, nor had received his mark on | their foreheads, nor in their hands***. And they lived | and reigned with Christ a thousand years. | | The Millenium Reign of Jesus is reserved for a SPECIAL | group of believers: ONLY those that endured PERSECUTION | for their faith will receive this special honor. | | Now, in Daniel 12:12, the angel call those that | "waiteth, and cometh" to the end of these 1335 days "BLESSED" - | and these are ***who had not worshiped the beast | nor his image, nor had received his mark on their foreheads, | nor in their hands*** --- who PERSERVERED | | Putting 2 and 2 together, I conclude that THIS is the point | in time that Jesus will return.... | ----- + What will happen here: | | 1. Living humans are transformed (into Spiritual beings) | | Mat 24:30 And then the sign of the Son of Man shall appear | in the heavens. And then all the tribes of the earth | shall mourn, and they shall see the Son of Man coming | in the clouds of the heaven with power and great glory. | Mat 24:31 And He shall send His angels with a **great sound | of a trumpet**, and they shall **gather His elect** from | the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other. | | --- Oh uh, ONLY the elect will be gather. | --- What happens to the non-elect humans that survive ??? | --- After some thought, I think these elect are the same ones | --- as ***who had not worshiped the beast | --- nor his image, nor had received his mark on their foreheads, | --- nor in their hands*** | --- There will still be Non-elect humans alive - see below. | | ----------------------- | | 1Co 15:51 Behold, I speak a mystery to you; we shall not | all fall asleep, but we shall all be changed; | 1Co 15:52 in a moment, in a glance of an eye, at | **the last trumpet** (= 7th in Revelation). | For a trumpet shall sound, and **the dead shall | be raised incorruptible**, and **we shall all be changed** | (gather His elect - Mat 24:31). | | --- According to Matt 24:31, the "we" in 1Co 15:52 is not | --- all people on earth; only Jesus' elect. | ------------------------- | | Isa 26:19 Your dead ones shall live, together with | my dead body they shall arise. Awake and sing, | you who dwell in the dust; for your dew is as | the dew of lights, and the earth shall cast out | the dead. | Isa 26:20 Come, **my people**, enter into your rooms and | shut your doors around you; hide for a little moment, | until the fury (God's Wrath !) has passed by. | Isa 26:21 For behold, **Jehovah comes out of His place | (Jesus has come - so God has come out of His place) | to punish the people of the earth for their iniquity; | the earth also shall reveal her blood, and shall | no more cover her dead**. | | | ------------------------------------------------- ------>>>>> Satan bounded for 1000 yrs ------------------------------------------------- | | Rev 20:1 And I saw an angel come down from Heaven, | having the key of the abyss and a great chain in his hand. | Rev 20:2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, | who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him **a thousand (1000) years**. | Rev 20:3 And he cast him into the abyss and shut him up | and set a seal on him, that he should deceive | the nations no more until the thousand (1000) years | should be fulfilled. And after that he must be | **loosed a little time**. | M | Isaiah 24:21 i | And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD l | shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high l | [ the rebel angelic hosts], and the kings of the earth e | upon the earth. And they shall be gathered n | together,as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and i | shall be shut up in the prison, and **after many days u | SHALL THEY BE VISITED**. m | | |--------------------------------------------------------------- | WRANING: | | Both prophecies tells us that the END is NOT yet !!! | There is still ONE more battle remaining after the Millenium | reign. | | **** So DO NOT be fooled that all is over. **** |--------------------------------------------------------------- | ------------------------------------- ----->>>>> What to expect in the Millenium ------------------------------------- | | (1) Honor is given is a SMALL number of believer of Jesus" | | (a) Martyrs (those who died for their faith | (b) Those who perservered in the Tribulation | | Biblical evidence: | | Rev 20:4 .... And I saw the souls of (1) those who had | been beheaded for the witness of Jesus and for | the Word of God, and (2) who had not worshiped the beast | nor his image, nor had received his mark on | their foreheads, nor in their hands. And they lived | and reigned with Christ a thousand years. | | ONLY these believers receives a SPECIAL honor (reign with Jesus | for 1000 yrs) and SPECIAL position in the Kingdom of God | while other believers still WAITS and are NOT resurrected: | | Rev 20:5 But the rest of the dead did not live again | until the thousand years were finished. This is | the first resurrection. | Rev 20:6 Blessed and holy is he who has part in | the first resurrection. The second death has no | authority over these, but they will be priests of God | and of Christ, and will reign with Him a thousand years. | | | Wow !!! (but this honor is hard earned !) | | (2) During the Millennium, people will live to be very, very old. | A person that is one hundred years old shall be considered | a child. | | | Isaiah 65:17-25 | | 17 "Behold, I will create | new heavens and a new earth. | The former things will not be remembered, | nor will they come to mind. | | *** Note: Although Isaiah speaks of a NEW heavens and | a NEW earth, just like John in Rev 21:1, I think | this heaven and earth is NOT the same heaven and | earth in Rev 21:1, because people DIE in this | earth... In Rev. 21:1, those people DO NOT | to FACE DEATH - (According to Rev 21:4 --- | And God will wipe away all tears from their eyes. | And there will be ***no more death***, nor mourning, | nor crying out, nor will there be any more pain; | for the first things passed away) | | | 18 But be glad and rejoice forever | in what I will create, | for I will create Jerusalem to be a delight | and its people a joy. | | 19 I will rejoice over Jerusalem | and take delight in my people; | the sound of weeping and of crying | will be heard in it no more. | | 20 "Never again will there be in it | an infant who lives but a few days, | or an old man who does not live out his years; | he who dies at a hundred | will be thought a mere youth; | he who fails to reach [a] a hundred | will be considered accursed. | | 21 They will build houses and dwell in them; | they will plant vineyards and eat their fruit. | | 22 No longer will they build houses and others live in them, | or plant and others eat. | For as the days of a tree, | so will be the days of my people; | my chosen ones will long enjoy | the works of their hands. | | 23 They will not toil in vain | or bear children doomed to misfortune; | for they will be a people blessed by the LORD, | they and their descendants with them. | | 24 Before they call I will answer; | while they are still speaking I will hear. | | 25 The wolf and the lamb will feed together, | and the lion will eat straw like the ox, | but dust will be the serpent's food. | They will neither harm nor destroy | on all my holy mountain," | says the LORD. | | (3) The population of the world will explode: | | Rev 20:8-Satan shall go out (at the end of the Millenium) | 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 (COUNTLESS) as the sand of the sea | (or on the seashore). | After | 1000 | years | ********+>>>>> Satan's last stance | | Rev 20:7 And when the thousand years have expired, | Satan will be loosed out of his prison. | Rev 20:8 And he will 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 them is as the sand of the sea. | Rev 20:9 And they went up over the breadth of | the earth and circled around the camp of the saints, | and the beloved city. And fire came down from God | out of Heaven and devoured them. | | (1) The first interesting question is: | where does Satan gets his army ? | | It can only be if there are still humans on earth - | so Isaiah 65:17-25's new heaven and earth with humans | dying PROBABLY refer to the heaven and earth during | the Millenium reign. | | (2) The second interesting question is: | What about the deaths that did not resurrect at the start | of the Millenium ? Are they gonna be deceived | another time ? | | No !!!: we read that the dead stand before God AFTER the | defeat of Satan | | Rev 20:10 And the Devil who deceived them was cast | into the Lake of Fire and Brimstone, where the beast | and the false prophet were . And he will be tormented | day and night forever and ever. | Rev 20:11 And I saw a great white throne, and Him sitting | on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. | And a place was not found for them. | Rev 20:12 And I saw the **dead, the small and the great, | stand before God**. And 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. | Rev 20:13 And the sea gave up the dead in it. And death | and hell delivered up the dead in them. And each one | of them was judged according to their works. | Rev 20:14 And death and hell were cast into the Lake of Fire. | This is the second death. | Rev 20:15 And if anyone was not found having been written | in the Book of Life, he was cast into the Lake of Fire. | ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------>>>>>> THIS IS God's Judgement Day !!!! This is the "great white throne" judgement. From what I can tell, here is when the "ordinary" believers will be raised to life (ordinary = not martyrs and not believers who have gone through the Tribulation). The unbelievers will also be raised to life here. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | ========+============================================================ | Here after, ALL who found worthy (not only the martyrs and | those who perservered in the Tribulation) will be in the Kingdom | of God: | | Rev 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth. | For the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. | And the sea no longer is. | Rev 21:2 And I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, | coming down from God out of Heaven, prepared as | a bride adorned for her Husband. | Rev 21:3 And I heard a great voice out of Heaven saying, | Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will | dwell with them, and they will be His people, and | God Himself will be with them and be their God. | Rev 21:4 And God will wipe away all tears from their eyes. | And there will be ***no more death***, nor mourning, | nor crying out, nor will there be any more pain; | for the first things passed away |
Eze 28:12 Son of man, lift up a lament over the
king of Tyre,
and say to him, So says the Lord Jehovah: You seal the measure,
full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.
Eze 28:13 You have been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was your covering, the ruby, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the turquoise, and the emerald, and gold. The workmanship of your tambourines and of your flutes was prepared in you in the day that you were created.
Eze 28:14 You were the anointed cherub that covers, and I had put you in the holy height of God where you were; you have walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.
Eze 28:15 You were perfect in your ways from the day that you were created, until iniquity was found in you.
Eze 28:16 By the multitude of your goods they have filled your midst with violence, and you have sinned. So I cast you profaned from the height of God, and I destroy you, O covering cherub, from among the stones of fire.
Eze 28:17 Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty; you have spoiled your wisdom because of your brightness. I will cast you to the ground; I will put you before kings, that they may behold you.
Eze 28:18 By the host of your iniquities, by the iniquity of your trade, you have profaned your holy places; so I brought a fire from your midst; it shall devour you, and I will give you for ashes on the earth, before the eyes of all who see you.
Eze 28:19 All who know you among the peoples shall be astonished at you; you shall be terrors, and you will not be forever.
Zec 14:1 Behold, the day of Jehovah comes, and your spoil shall
be divided in your midst.
Zec 14:2 For I will gather all nations to battle against Jerusalem; and
the city shall be taken, and the houses plundered, and the women raped.
And half of the city shall go into exile, and the rest of the people
shall not be cut off from the city.
Zec 14:3 And Jehovah shall go out and fight against those nations,
like the day He fought in the day of battle.
Zec 14:4 And His feet shall stand in that day on the Mount of Olives,
