Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, sins, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil:
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.
Today we use the Gregorian calendar from Pope Gregory, from the 1500’s
Today is May 8, 2010
God has His own calendar
We are now in the 2nd month of God, Ziv / Zif – day 23
1 Kgs. 6  And it came to pass in the four hundred and eightieth year after the children of Israel were come out of the land of Egypt, in the fourth year of Solomon's reign over Israel, in the month Zif, which is the second month, that he began to build the house of Yehovah.
æÄå - ziv - brightness, (figuratively) the month of flowers
***Make sure you change your Judaism calendars – The 2nd month is not Iyyar as Judaism states, it is Ziv.
God's Spring Calendar for 2010, these are the days left
Remember: There is one extra Sabbath left, besides the 7th day Sabbath each week
This is the 5th Sabbath of the seven Sabbaths we were told to count.
We are counting the "Sabbaths" not omers
An "omer" is a "sheaf" of barley -òîø omer - A dry measure of 1/10 ephah (about 2 liters)
Lev.23  And ye shall count unto you from the morrow after the sabbath, from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven Sabbaths shall be complete:
 Even unto the morrow after the seventh Sabbath shall ye number fifty days; and ye shall offer a new meat offering unto Yehovah.
The 3rd month of God, Sivan, and May 16th (starts sunset of May 15th)
Feast of Weeks / Pentecost is coming
Feast of Weeks, 50 - Pentecost - May 23th, 1st day of the week (Sunday), (starts sunset May 22th) 8th of Sivan, 50 days from First Fruits - a Sabbath
***This would make it 2 Sabbaths in a row
Paul observing Pentecost / Feast of Weeks
Acts 2  And when the day of Pentecost / Feast of Weeks was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
Acts 20  For Paul had determined to sail by Ephesus, because he would not spend the time in Asia: for he hasted, if it were possible for him, to be at Jerusalem the day of Pentecost / Feast of Weeks.
1 Cor. 16  But I will tarry at Ephesus until Pentecost / Feast of Weeks.
I explain the Sabbath, the 7th day, each week
This is how simple it is:
The Sabbath, the 7th day, is the 4th Commandment of God - NO WORK - Exod. 20 and Deut. 5
God starts His days in the evening - Gen. 1, the evening and the morning were the first day
Friday evening to Saturday evening - Lev.23  ... from even unto even, shall ye celebrate your sabbath.
Sabbath is an holy convocation (holy assembly) - Lev. 23
Buying and selling is evil on the Sabbath - Neh. 13
Isa. 58 
1 - not doing thine own ways,
2 - nor finding thine own pleasure,
3 - nor speaking thine own words:
We read from law and the prophets every Sabbath like they did in the
Book of Acts
60 times in the Gospels and letters it uses the word Sabbath!
Yeshua, Paul and the Apostles all observed the Sabbath:
Acts 13  Now when Paul and his company loosed from Paphos, they came to Perga in Pamphylia: and John departing from them returned to Jerusalem.
 But when they departed from Perga, they came to Antioch in Pisidia, and went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and sat down.
 And after the reading of the law and the prophets the rulers of the synagogue sent unto them, saying, Ye men and brethren, if ye have any word of exhortation for the people, say on.
Acts 15  For Moses of old time hath in every city them that preach him,
being read in the synagogues every Sabbath day.
Luke 4  And he, Yeshua came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom (prescribed by God's law) was, he went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up for to read.
 And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias.
Acts 13:  For they that dwell at Jerusalem, and their rulers, because they knew him not, nor yet the voices of the prophets which are read every sabbath day, they have fulfilled them in condemning him.
Acts 13  And when the Jews were gone out of the synagogue, the Gentiles besought that these words might be preached to them the next sabbath.
 And the next sabbath day came almost the whole city together to hear the word of God.
First day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread
Luke. 23  And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments; and rested the sabbath day according to the commandment.
"Sabbath in the future"
Yeshua said in Matt. 24  But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the Sabbath day
Isa. 66 - A Sabbath, even after the new heavens and the new earth are created
 For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith Yehovah, so shall your seed and your name remain.
 And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one Sabbath to another, shall all (new body) flesh come to worship before me, saith Yehovah.
 And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh.

This week’s topic: Sweet Jesus - NOT
In the fire of my jealousy
A man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron
Heb. 4  Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight:
all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.
Give ear, O ye heavens, and I will speak; and hear, O earth, the words of my mouth
 Give ear, O ye heavens, and I will
speak; and hear, O earth, the words of my mouth.
 My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass:
 Because I will publish the name of Yehovah: ascribe ye greatness unto our God.
 He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.
 They have corrupted themselves, their spot is not the spot of his children: they are a perverse and crooked generation.
 Do ye thus requite Yehovah, O foolish people and unwise? is not he thy father that hath bought thee? hath he not made thee, and established thee?
 Remember the days of old, consider the years of many generations: ask thy father, and he will shew thee; thy elders, and they will tell thee.
 When the most High divided to the nations their inheritance, when he separated the sons of Adam, he set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of Israel.
 For Yehovah's portion is his people; Jacob is the lot of his inheritance.
 He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye.
 As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings:
 So Yehovah alone did lead him, and there was no strange god with him.
 He made him ride on the high places of the earth, that he might eat the increase of the fields; and he made him to suck honey out of the rock, and oil out of the flinty rock;
 Butter of kine, and milk of sheep, with fat of lambs, and rams of the breed of Bashan, and goats, with the fat of kidneys of wheat; and thou didst drink the pure blood of the grape.
 But Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked: thou art waxen fat, thou art grown thick, thou art covered with fatness; then he forsook God which made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation.
 They provoked him to jealousy with strange gods, with abominations provoked they him to anger.
 They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not.
 Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten God that formed thee.
 And when Yehovah saw it, he abhorred them, because of the provoking of his sons, and of his daughters.
 And he said, I will hide my face from them, I will see what their end shall be: for they are a very froward generation, children in whom is no faith.
 They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God; they have provoked me to anger with their vanities: and I will move them to jealousy with those which are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation.
 For a fire is kindled in mine anger,
and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her
increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains.
 I will heap mischiefs upon them; I will spend mine arrows upon them.
 They shall be burnt with hunger, and devoured with burning heat, and with bitter destruction: I will also send the teeth of beasts upon them, with the poison of serpents of the dust.
 The sword without, and terror within, shall destroy both the young man and the virgin, the suckling also with the man of gray hairs.
 I said, I would scatter them into corners, I would make the remembrance of them to cease from among men:
 Were it not that I feared the wrath of the enemy, lest their adversaries should behave themselves strangely, and lest they should say, Our hand is high, and Yehovah hath not done all this.
 For they are a nation void of counsel, neither is there any understanding in them.
 O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!
 How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, except their Rock had sold them, and Yehovah had shut them up?
 For their rock is not as our Rock, even our enemies themselves being judges.
 For their vine is of the vine of Sodom, and of the fields of Gomorrah: their grapes are grapes of gall, their clusters are bitter:
 Their wine is the poison of dragons, and the cruel venom of asps.
 Is not this laid up in store with me, and sealed up among my treasures?
 To me belongeth vengeance, and recompence; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste.
 For Yehovah shall judge his people, and repent himself for his servants, when he seeth that their power is gone, and there is none shut up, or left.
 And he shall say, Where are their gods, their rock in whom they trusted,
 Which did eat the fat of their sacrifices, and drank the wine of their drink offerings? let them rise up and help you, and be your protection.
 See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.
 For I lift up my hand to heaven, and say, I live for ever.
 If I whet my glittering sword, and mine hand take hold on judgment; I will render vengeance to mine enemies, and will reward them that hate me.
 I will make mine arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh; and that with the blood of the slain and of the captives, from the beginning of revenges upon the enemy.
 Rejoice, O ye nations, with his people: for he will avenge the blood of his servants, and will render vengeance to his adversaries, and will be merciful unto his land, and to his people.
 And Moses came and spake all the words of this song in the ears of the people, he, and Hoshea the son of Nun.
 And Moses made an end of speaking all these words to all Israel:
 And he said unto them, Set your hearts unto all the words which I testify among you this day, which ye shall command your children to observe to do, all the words of this law.
 For it is not a vain thing for you; because it is your life: and through this thing ye shall prolong your days in the land, whither ye go over Jordan to possess it.
 And Yehovah spake unto Moses that selfsame day, saying,
 Get thee up into this mountain Abarim, unto mount Nebo, which is in the land of Moab, that is over against Jericho; and behold the land of Canaan, which I give unto the children of Israel for a possession:
 And die in the mount whither thou goest up, and be gathered unto thy people; as Aaron thy brother died in mount Hor, and was gathered unto his people:
 Because ye trespassed against me among the children of Israel at the waters of Meribah-Kadesh, in the wilderness of Zin; because ye sanctified me not in the midst of the children of Israel.
 Yet thou shalt see the land before thee; but thou shalt not go thither unto the land which I give the children of Israel.
 Brethren, my heart's desire and
prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.
 For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.
 For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
 For Messiah is the end (goal) of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.
 For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That the man which doeth those things shall live by them.
 But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Messiah down from above:)
 Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Messiah again from the dead.)
 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Yeshua, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Yehovah over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord Yeshua shall be saved.
 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
 But they have not all obeyed the
gospel. For Esaias saith, Yehovah, who hath believed our report?
 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
 But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world.
 But I say, Did not Israel know? First Moses saith, I will provoke you to jealousy by them that are no people, and by a foolish nation I will anger you.
 But Esaias is very bold, and saith, I was found of them that sought me not; I was made manifest unto them that asked not after me.
 But to Israel he
saith, All day long I have stretched forth my hands unto a disobedient
and gainsaying people.
Isa. 65  I am sought of them that asked not for me; I am found of them that sought me not: I said, Behold me, behold me, unto a nation that was not called by my name.
 I have spread out my hands all
the day unto a rebellious people, which walketh in a way that was not good,
after their own thoughts;
 A people that provoketh me to anger continually to my face; that sacrificeth in gardens, and burneth incense upon altars of brick;
 Which remain among the graves, and lodge in the monuments, which eat swine's flesh, and broth of abominable things is in their vessels;
 Which say, Stand by thyself, come not near to me; for I am holier than thou. These are a smoke in my nose, a fire that burneth all the day.
 I say then, Hath God cast away his
people? God forbid. For I also am an
Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.
 God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew. Wot ye not what the scripture saith of Elias? how he maketh intercession to God against Israel, saying,
 Yehovah, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life.
 But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal.
 Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.
 And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.
 What then? 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.
 And David saith, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumbling block, and a recompence unto them:
 Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow down their back alway.
 I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them (the Jews) to jealousy.
*** Tell me, how do the Catholics and Protestants provoke the Jews to jealousy with their Easter bunnies, Santa Clouse, decorating dead trees and singing to them, Halloween, etc... You don't provoke anyone to jealousy. The Jews laugh at you, wake up!
Back to Rom. 11
 Now if
the fall of them be the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the
riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fulness?
 For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office:
 If by any means I may provoke to emulation them which are my flesh, and might save some of them.
 For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead?
 For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches.
 And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree;
 Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.
 Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in.
 Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear:
 For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.
 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.
 And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in again.
 For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be graffed into their own olive tree?
 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.
 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:
 For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.
 As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers' sakes.
 For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.
 For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief:
 Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy.
 For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all.
 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!
 For who hath known the mind of Yehovah? or who hath been his counseller?
 Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again?
 For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.
All things are naked and opened unto the eyes of Him with whom we have to do
 And it came to pass in the sixth year,
in the sixth month, in the fifth day of the month, as I sat in mine house, and
the elders of Judah sat before me, that the hand of Yehovah GOD fell there upon
 Then I beheld, and lo a likeness as the appearance of fire: from the appearance of his loins even downward, fire; and from his loins even upward, as the appearance of brightness, as the colour of amber.
 And he put forth the form of an hand, and took me by a lock of mine head; and the spirit lifted me up between the earth and the heaven, and brought me in the visions of God to Jerusalem, to the door of the inner gate that looketh toward the north; where was the seat of the image of jealousy, which provoketh to jealousy.
 And, behold, the glory of the God of
Israel was there, according to the vision that I saw in the plain.
 Then said he unto me, Son of man, lift up thine eyes now the way toward the north. So I lifted up mine eyes the way toward the north, and behold northward at the gate of the altar this image of jealousy in the entry.
 He said furthermore unto me, Son of man, seest thou what they do? even the great abominations that the house of Israel committeth here, that I should go far off from my sanctuary? but turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations.
 And he brought me to the door of the
court; and when I looked, behold a hole in the wall.
 Then said he unto me, Son of man, dig now in the wall: and when I had digged in the wall, behold a door.
 And he said unto me, Go in, and behold the wicked abominations that they do here.
 So I went in and saw; and behold every form of creeping things, and abominable beasts, and all the idols of the house of Israel, pourtrayed upon the wall round about.
 And there stood before them seventy men of the ancients of the house of Israel, and in the midst of them stood Jaazaniah the son of Shaphan, with every man his censer in his hand; and a thick cloud of incense went up.
 Then said he unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen what the ancients of the house of Israel do in the dark, every man in the chambers of his imagery? for they say, Yehovah seeth us not; Yehovah hath forsaken the earth.
 He said also unto me, Turn thee yet
again, and thou shalt see greater abominations that
 Then he brought me to the door of the gate of Yehovah's house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz.
 Then said he unto me, Hast thou seen
this, O son of man? turn thee yet again, and thou
shalt see greater abominations than these.
 And he brought me into the inner court of Yehovah's house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of Yehovah, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of Yehovah, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east.
 Then he said unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? Is it a light thing to the house of Judah that they commit the abominations which they commit here? for they have filled the land with violence, and have returned to provoke me to anger: and, lo, they put the branch to their nose.
 Therefore will I also deal in fury: mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: and though they cry in mine ears with a loud voice, yet will I not hear them.
 Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, hath turned my wrath away from the children of Israel, while he was zealous for my sake among them, that I consumed not the children of Israel in my jealousy.
 And I will set my jealousy against thee, and they shall deal furiously with thee: they shall take away thy nose and thine ears; and thy remnant shall fall by the sword: they shall take thy sons and thy daughters; and thy residue shall be devoured by the fire.
 Therefore thus saith Yehovah GOD; Surely in the fire of my jealousy have I spoken against the residue of the heathen, and against all Idumea, which have appointed my land into their possession with the joy of all their heart, with despiteful minds, to cast it out for a prey.
 Prophesy therefore concerning the land of Israel, and say unto the mountains, and to the hills, to the rivers, and to the valleys, Thus saith Yehovah GOD; Behold, I have spoken in my jealousy and in my fury, because ye have borne the shame of the heathen:
 For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;
 Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of Yehovah's wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.
 Therefore wait ye upon me, saith Yehovah, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.
 So the angel that communed with me said unto me, Cry thou, saying, Thus saith Yehovah of hosts; I am jealous for Jerusalem and for Zion with a great jealousy.
 Thus saith Yehovah of hosts; I was jealous for Zion with great jealousy, and I was jealous for her with great fury.
 How long, YEHOVAH? wilt thou be angry for ever? shall thy jealousy burn like fire?
 For jealousy is the rage of a man: therefore he will not spare in the day of vengeance.
 Yehovah shall go forth as a mighty man, he shall stir up jealousy like a man of war: he shall cry, yea, roar; he shall prevail against his enemies.
Vengeance of our God
 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.
 The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance: he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.
 O YEHOVAH God, to whom vengeance belongeth; O God, to whom vengeance belongeth, shew thyself.
 For it is the day of Yehovah's vengeance, and the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion.
 Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you
 To proclaim the acceptable year of Yehovah, and the day of vengeance of our God;
 For the day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come.
Sweet Jesus - NOT
 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith Yehovah.
 Seeing it is a righteous thing with
God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you;
 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Yeshua shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,
 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah:
 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;
 For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith Yehovah. And again, Yehovah shall judge his people.
 And unto the angel of the church in
Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto
a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass;
 I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first.
 Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.
 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.
 Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.
 And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.
 And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:
 And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.
 And unto the angel of the church of
the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true
witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.
 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a
white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in
righteousness he doth judge and make war.
 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
 And he was
clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The
Word of God.
 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
 And he hath on his vesture and on his
thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
 And I saw the beast, and the kings of
the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat
on the horse, and against his army.
 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.
In closing: Paul says:
Heb. 12  See
that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him
that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him
that speaketh from heaven:
 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.
 And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.
 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
 For our God is a consuming fire.
