Rev 13:2  Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority.  Rev 9:2,11; 13:1,5,12-15; Eze 26:7; 38:6; Dan 2-3

The combination of Greece/Syria, Turkey/Iran/Iraq, and Babylon will be together in the attack on Israel one day soon! 8/26/13 the Arab World, Russia and US in place again.

The woman, Rev 17:3… ..and I saw a woman – a great and mighty city, reigns over the kings of the earth, a whore, to be destroyed in one day by the ten horns 18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth. (Rev 18:10 that great city Babylon, that mighty city!)

Rev 17:16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.

“Look up for your redeemer is coming soon.” “And those of the people who understand shall instruct many;” “But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.” And he said, “Go [your way], Daniel, for the words [are] closed up and sealed till the time of the end.” “and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand.” Daniel 11 – 12

Revelation 17:3 And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness, and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was full of blasphemous names, and it had seven heads and ten horns. 4The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorne with gold and jewels and pearls, holding in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the impurities of her sexual immorality. 5And upon her forehead [was] a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. 6And I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints, the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. When I saw her, I marveled greatly.

Dubai  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dubai  Dubai (/dˈb/ doo-BY; Arabic: دبيّ‎ Dubayy, IPA: [dʊˈbæj]) is a city in the United Arab Emirates, located within the emirate of the same name. The emirate of Dubai is located on the southeast coast of the Persian Gulf and is one of the seven emirates that make up the country. It has the largest population in the UAE (2,106,177) and the second-largest land territory (4,114 km2) after the capital, Abu Dhabi.[4] Abu Dhabi and Dubai are the only two emirates to have veto power over critical matters of national importance in the country’s legislature.[5] The city of Dubai is located on the emirate’s northern coastline and heads up the Dubai-Sharjah-Ajman metropolitan area. Dubai is often misperceived as a country or city-state and, in some cases, the UAE as a whole has been described as ‘Dubai’

Abu Dhabi houses important offices of the federal government, and is the seat for the UAE (United Arab Emirates Government) and the home for the Abu Dhabi Emiri Family and the President of the UAE from this family. Abu Dhabi has grown to be a cosmopolitan metropolis. Its rapid development and urbanisation, coupled with the relatively high average income of its population, has transformed Abu Dhabi to a larger and advanced metropolis. Today the city is the country’s center of political, industrial activities, and a major cultural, and commercial centre due to its position as the capital. Abu Dhabi alone generated 56.7% of the GDP of the United Arab Emirates in 2008.

IRAN: Hates Babylon (the mysterious illusive entity that is Babylon will be destroyed in one day). Iran hates those who try to control them. The beast, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, The False Prophet, Hassan Rouhani(?), and the Destroyer, Nazrallah, are all in place. The 10 toes (of Daniel 2:41,42; 7:19-21) are The Ottoman Empire! 2/14/13 Two days ago on the 12th of February 2013 The Pope resigned. If my version of the last days is wrong and the ‘new’ Pope becomes involved, as others believe he will, their version may be correct after all. Interesting isn’t it.

The Arab League though divided into Sunni and Shia, dominate the world today. Iran (Shiia), “was and is not and is to come”.  Their Ayatollah Ali Khamenei believes he is the 12th Imam, God. As we watch to see who emerges from the “bottomless pitand once for all know who ‘the beast’ is and who Babylon is, the world will be deceived and go to destruction.

Rev 13:1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.

“Come, everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.” (Isa 55:1)   Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
(1)Babylon (Scofield, C. I. “Scofield Reference Notes on Isaiah 13″. “Scofield Reference Notes (1917 Edition)”. <http://www.studylight.org/com/srn/view.cgi?book=isa&chapter=013&gt;. 1917.) The city, Babylon is not in view here, as the immediate context shows. It is important to note the significance of the name when used symbolically. “Babylon” is the Greek form: invariably in the O.T. Hebrew the word is simply Babel, the meaning of which is confusion, and in this sense the word is used symbolically. (1) In the prophets, when the actual city is not meant, the reference is to the “confusion” into which the whole social order of the world has fallen under Gentile world-domination. (See “Times of the Gentiles,” Luke 21:24; Revelation 16:14; Isaiah 13:4 gives the divine view of the welter of warring Gentile powers. The divine order is given in Isa. 11. Israel in her own land, the centre of the divine government of the world and channel of the divine blessing; and the Gentiles blessed in association with Israel. Anything else is, politically, mere “babel.” (2) In Revelation 14:8-11; 16:19 the Gentile world-system is in view in connection with Armageddon; Revelation 16:14; 19:21 while in Rev 17, the reference is to apostate Christianity, destroyed by the nations Revelation 17:16 headed up under the Beast ; Daniel 7:8; Revelation 19:20 and false prophet. In Isaiah the political Babylon is in view, literally as to the then existing city, and symbolically as to the times of the Gentiles. In the Revelation both the symbolical- political and symbolical-religious Babylon are in view, for there both are alike under the tyranny of the Beast. Religious Babylon is destroyed by political Babylon Revelation 17:16 political Babylon by the appearing of the Lord Revelation 19:19-21. That Babylon the city is not to be rebuilt is clear from ; Isaiah 13:19-22; Jeremiah 51:24-26,62-64. By political Babylon is meant the Gentile world-system. (See “World,” ; John 7:7; Revelation 13:8) It may be added that, in Scripture symbolism, Egypt stands for the world as such; Babylon for the world of corrupt power and corrupted religion; Nineveh for the pride, the haughty glory of the world.

“Oh Give me That Book!” John Wesley: I want to know one thing the way to heaven; how to land safe on that happy shore

John Wesley: I want to know one thing the way to heaven; how to land safe on that happy shore. God Himself has condescended to teach the way; for this very end He came from heaven. He hath written it down in a book. O give me that book! At any price, give me the book of God! I have it: here is knowledge enough for me.

The entire history of the world is covered in Revelation. Even to the end of our understanding of God’s plans.

We have rehearsed the Bible for thousands of years and are in awe of our Creator God Almighty. He has foretold the future and we are still in awe when it unfolds just like He has told us.

We are in awe to know that when this age of Grace we live in today expires there will be a period of one thousand years and when that expires there will be an eternity with God in His Holy Temple and with mansions He has prepared for us.

Rev 20:7And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison 8 and Satan says to himself: Ezekiel 38:11And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates, 12 To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places [that are now] inhabited, and upon the people [that are] gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land.

Rev 20:8and shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle; the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. 9And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city; and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.

Rev 20:7-9 and Ezekiel 38 and 39 will be the future after the 1000 year reign of Christ. Then all Israel and all the Saints in Light will still be reading the Bible during the 1000 year reign of Christ? Looking into the future of Ezekiel 38 and 39, when “fire”will come “down from God out of heaven, and devour them.” Christ is ‘The Word of God’.  Matthew 24:35Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.

America in the Bible

America is not mentioned in the Bible. It would be reasonable to assume then America has no role in the ‘last days’ playing out. Thus, if America were to prosper and continue affecting the governments, politics and wars it would never play out the way God purposes it to be. Therein the results of American politics has well played into the purpose of God. Americans must take joy in knowing the return of our Lord Jesus Christ is imminent.  Pray for strength, courage and each other to endure whatever plays out till our Lord Jesus Christ returns. www.revelationlastday.com

Never, never quit standing for Truth! http://onenewsnow.com/legal-courts/2014/03/21/legal-victory-for-conservative-christian-prof-at-unc#.Uyx2_-Uo4eE Oh, how we pray America will turn back to stand for God! Amen

BOOK OF LIFE The Lord will blot out his name under heaven

THE BOOK OF LIFE

by Lorita Goza

‘Make sure there is no man or woman, clan or tribe among you today whose heart turns away from the LORD our God.’ ‘The Lord will blot out his name under heaven.’ (Deuteronomy 29:18,20).

‘Now if You would only forgive their sin. But if not, please erase me from the book You have written.” The Lord replied to Moses: “Whoever has sinned against Me I will erase from My book.’ (Exodus 32:32,33)

 It is clear our names were or are all entered into the Book of Life, else how could it be erased. Your name is already in ‘The Book of Life!’

‘This [is] the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him’ (Genesis 5:1)

‘Make sure there is no man or woman, clan or tribe among you today whose heart turns away from the LORD our God.’ ‘The Lord will blot out his name under heaven.’ (Deuteronomy 29:18,20).

 ‘Blot out his name under heaven,’ blotting or erasing a name from the Book of Life.  God is telling Moses, when one turns away from God and refuses to believe in God the Savior, He ‘will blot out his name under heaven.’

‘A river of fire was flowing, coming out from His presence. Thousands upon thousands served Him; ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him. The court was convened, and the books were opened.’ (Daniel 7:10)

‘And at that time your people shall be delivered, Every one who is found written in the book. And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, Some to everlasting life, Some to shame and everlasting contempt.’ (Dan 12:1,2)

‘Anyone who has an ear should listen to what the Spirit says to the churches. I will give the victor some of the hidden manna. I will also give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name is inscribed that no one knows except the one who receives it.’ (Revelation 2:17)

All on the earth who worship the beast, their names have been blotted out of the Book of Life. The Lamb of God, slain from the foundation of the world will blot out those names from the Book of Life (Rev 13:8) (See Rev 5:6)

‘And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.’ (Revelation 20:12,15)

A new name will be given to us. With our names being in ‘the Book of Life’ from the beginning this may be the name inscribed on the stone God will give to us. When you accept Christ as your Savior you will be given the Holy Spirit to mark you as a child of God and your name will never be erased from the Book of Life.

‘You Yourself have recorded my wanderings. Put my tears in Your bottle. Are they not in Your records?’ (Psalm 56:8)

Records are being kept in books in heaven.

‘Let them be erased from the book of life and not be recorded with the righteous.’ (Psalm 69:28)

God has given every life since Adam a name, a name which he has given to each and every seed that would ever exist and recorded them in The Book of Life. Our Creator knows each by name. Not the name you know, but the name God has given you. This is an example of how The Book of Life might look. God has given you a name then sealed you by God The Holy Spirit, given a white garment, given eternal life never to be erased from the Book of Life.

‘God who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace, which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began. This has now been made evident through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who has abolished death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.’ (2 Timothy 1:9-10)

‘The victor will be given a white garment, and I will never erase his name from the book of life, but will acknowledge his name before My Father and before His angels.’ (Revelation 3:5)

And those who dwell on the earth will marvel, whose names are not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they see the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.’ (Revelation 17:8)

‘Standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life, and the dead were judged according to their works by what was written in the books.’ (Revelation 20:15)

‘And if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book* of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.’ (Revelation 22:19)

‘O Death, where is your victory? O Death, where is your sting?’ 1 Cor 15:55

Christ the Savior!

Now if you are wondering, how can I keep my name in the Book of Life you will understand the ‘only’ way is to believe the Truth. Faith in the Christ, the Son of God. He came to be with His people and to die for our sins and to rise from the grave to live eternally in heaven and to lead the way for us to rise from our grave to live with him forever in heaven.

‘Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ who has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ, according as he has chosen us in Him (note: the Him is – ‘Christ’) before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love; (note: the Him is – ‘Christ’) Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to thegood pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, wherein He hath made us accepted in the Beloved (Jesus Christ).’ (Ephesians 1:3-11)

The mystery of Christ, to be specific is that the Gentiles are fellow heirs, and fellow members of the body (of Christ), and fellow partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus, through the Gospel, and the administration of ‘the mystery’ is through the church. God’s plan is being worked out through the Church, in conformity to that timeless purpose which he centered in Jesus, our Lord. ‘When I think of the greatness of this great plan I fall on my knees before God the Father. That Christ may actually live in your hearts by faith,’ awesome, amazing. Before the foundation of the world, God the Father, according to the good pleasure of His will, decided (foreknew) to predestinate all who believe in the Beloved (Christ), to give them eternal life. (Parts from J B Phillips Ephesians 3:4-11)

It is ‘… the mystery of Christ…’ ‘which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit;’ (Ephesians 3: 4) …. ‘which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ;’ (3:9)……. ‘according to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:’ (3:11). ‘…..and ..if the rulers and kings of this age had known it they would not have crucified him’ (1 Corinthians 2:7-8).

‘Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to His saints; To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:’ (Colossians 1:26 – 27)

‘Now to Him who has power to strengthen you according to my gospel and the proclamation of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the sacred secret kept silent for long ages, but now revealed and made known through the prophetic Scriptures, according to the command of the eternal God, to advance the obedience of faith among all: To God, only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ forever. Amen.’ (Romans 16:25)

‘For God so loved the world He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world that He might condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. Anyone who believes in Him is not condemned, but anyone who does not believe is already condemned, because he has not believed in the name of the One and Only Son of God.’ (John 3:16-18)

Already condemned because before the foundation of the world God planned, the only way to salvation is through faith in Jesus Christ.

‘The one who believes in the Son has eternal life, but the one who refuses to believe in the Son will not see life; instead, the wrath of God remains on him.’ (John 3:36)

‘The victor will be given a white garment, and I will never erase his name from the book of life, but will acknowledge his name before My Father and before His angels.’ (Revelation 3:5)
