WHO ARE SONS OF GOD?
Why do they need to be revealed and when will they be revealed?
WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT SONS OF GOD.
According to numerous Bible references, all spirit creatures (Angels) are created with God's attributes, in His Image and are part of His family, as His Sons.
"Now the day came when the (angelic) Sons of the true God entered to take their station before Yhwh," Job 1:6. "The morning stars all joyfully cried out together, And all the (angelic) Sons of God began shouting in applause" Job 38:7 "For who in the skies can compare to Yhwh? Who among the Sons of God is like Yhwh"? Psalm 89:6Should any spirit Son of God go rebellious or independent, they then fall short of His required standard for Sons and inclusion within His family. An example "The (angelic) sons of the true God began to notice that the daughters of men were beautiful. So they began taking as wives all whom they chose. Then Yhwh said: “My spirits will not always contend with men indefinitely, because they are also flesh. Accordingly, his days will amount to 120 years.” The Nephilim were on the earth in those days and after ward. During that time the (angelic) sons of the true God continued to have relations with the daughters of men, and these bore sons to them" Gen 6:2-4.
These originally spirit Sons of God who went renegade, materialized into human form and impregnated woman, with the intent of raising a hybrid race. They came under punishment for their acts and were remanded in Tartarus, awaiting final judgement. They had created their own substandard image below God's standard and could no longer be recognised as God's Sons and so were rejected from His family.
"Certainly God did not refrain from punishing the angels (ex-sons of God) who sinned, but threw them into Tartarus, putting them in chains of dense darkness to be reserved for judgment" 2 Peter 2:4.
"And the angels (ex-sons of God) who did not keep their original position but forsook their own proper dwelling place, He has reserved with eternal bonds in dense darkness for the judgment of the great day" Jude 1:6.
see WHY DID GOD DESTROY AN ENTIRE WORLD POPULATION BY FLOOD?
ADAM ORIGINALLY CREATED AS A SON OF GOD
When God first created man, he was in a pristine condition with no faults or defects, made in the likeness (image) of God, able to exercise His qualities and attributes and so, could rightly be called His Son and part of His family.
"God went on to create the man in his image, in God’s image he created him; male and female he created them" Gen 1:27.
"This is the book of Adam’s history. In the day that God created Adam, he made him in the likeness of God. 2 Male and female he created them. On the day they were created, he blessed them and named them Man" Genesis 5:1-2.
Following Adam's rebellion against God's authority to rule over him, he created his own independent image, and ceased to be a Son of God and so, all his descendants became Sons of Adam, no longer Sons of God. Initially, Adam was created as a full Son of God, with God's intention that all human descendants of his would be included in His family as His Sons.
THE ADAM LOSES SON STATUS
After Adam went independent, rejecting God's instructions, he fell to a substandard level and as such, disinherited himself from God's family, and could no longer be considered a Son of God. As merchandise when inspected if found imperfect or substandard, is rejected. So, with Adam, by rejecting the authority of God, he made himself imperfect, substandard and so was rejected from God's Family. From then on, all subsequent generations could only pass on to their children their own independent likeness or image, so that none were eligible to be part of God's family as His Sons.
"When Adam had lived one hundred and thirty years, he became the father of a son in his likeness, according to his image, and named him Seth" Gen 5:3. WHAT IS ORIGINAL SIN, IS IT INHERITED
This means that the billions of human descendants of Adam all fell outside God's family, no humans qualified as God's Sons and all suffer from the consequences. Thankfully, however, a caring God has set up a truly amazing plan, by which it will be possible for all humans to have the opportunity of regaining Son status. In order to accomplish this task, God enlisted the cooperation of His first born spirit Son. Using him, He engineered a legal method by which to re-adopt billions of disinherited humans as His Sons. It required a means of justly cancelling our inherited substandard situation. It involved building a unique administration, commissioned with the massive task of enabling all reject humans, dead or alive, the opportunity of joining His family.
To bring all things back together in the Christ
"The sacred secret of his will. according to His good pleasure that he Himself purposed, to administer at the full limit of the
appointed times, to gather all things together in the Christ, the things in the heavens and the things on the earth" Ephesians 1:9-10.
This plan unfolds over 8,000 years. It started at the beginning of human history, when mankind first declared independence and opposition to God. He failed the standard for a Son of God, along with its ongoing program for sustaining perpetual life and so, died. The plan will end when man's independence is proved a total painful failure, and loyalty to God as His Sons is established as the proven superior way.
Following Adam, no 'Sons of God' walked the earth for the next 4,000 years. The transmitted state of disinherited ex-Sons, along with the death disease 'Adamic sin', has been inherited by all generations of the human race Romans 5:12. The plan would require a human life, uncontaminated by inherited 'Adamic disease. It was realised by the transference of a loyal Son of God from spirit-being to human being. Achieved through the miraculous birth of Jesus, the only begotten spirit Son of God, being born as a son of man. The only human to be born since Adam, uncontaminated with this death disease, with the full status of a Son of God.
The death of Christ in April 33 sits at the centre of God's 8,000 year plan. This date is, by far, the most important one in all human history, and will radically affect every human ever to have lived. In fact, this date is the most important in the history of all creation as it directly affects the lives and eventuality of all God's created family, spirit and human. This unique death provided a ransom payment required in order to purchase the entire dying human race an opportunity for something previously lost, that of becoming God's Sons and part of His family, enjoying the prospect of everlasting human life see; HUMAN LIFE SPAN CAN AGEING BE STOPPED .
As a Son of God, Christ was born with the legal right of everlasting human life, as Adam originally had. This life, he willingly sacrificed in order to equate a cure for humanity's inherited terminal ageing disease. Christ's death provides the only complete and permanent cure for human ageing and death. Individuals throughout all generations who have lived and died will enjoy the opportunity of taking advantage of this cure 1 Corinthians 15:21-22.
The first 4,000 year half of the plan laid down all the preparations required for leading up to this all important death date. They contained an unbroken bloodline, a signposted lineage leading to Christ. Confirming this, God made a contract with the first one in this lineage, Abraham, guaranteeing him that a descendant of his would eventually become the special offspring referred to at Genesis 3:15. The 'seal' of circumcision was imposed on Abraham and his following bloodline, Romans 4:11-13. This resulted in an unbroken chain of 42 circumcised generations over a period of 2,000 years, eventually arriving at this all important target offspring, the Christ Galatians 3:16 ( All 75 generations of this bloodline covering 4,000 years are listed at Luke 3:23-38). The second half of the plan, covers the 4,000 years following Christ's death. It contains a schedule for setting up all the mechanisms to accomplish the cure.
THREE MAIN ASPECTS CONTAINED IN THE SECOND HALF
2. Setting up a universal royal Kingdom administration to apply the benefits of this cure, Ephesians 1:9-10.
3. A mechanism of resurrection enabling all generations access to this cure John 5:28-29.
The date for Jesus Christ's death was meticulously calculated and set for the year 33 AD, precisely halfway through the 8,000 year plan, exactly 4,000 years after its start, Galatians 4:4. This central date provides the key to calculating all other dates and details within this restoration plan, starting in 3968 BC and finishing 8,000 years later in 4033 AD. It becomes possible to plot into this time frame the assigned start point for the 1,000 year reign of this Kingdom and a following 1,000 year Great Jubilee.

TWO COVENANTS EACH 2,000 YEARS LONG
FIRST 2,000 YEAR ABRAHAM COVENANT
In 33 AD, after 4,000 years, the restoration plan is centrally divided at the year of Christ's death. The 8,000 years also divides into four quarters at the 2,000 and 6,000 year points. Soon after the plan's start in 3968 BC, God recorded a prophecy that a very special offspring or descendant would arrive Genesis 3:15. Two thousand years later, at the first quarter date in 1968 BC, Abraham agreed a covenant with God to set up a blood line. Validated by circumcision on all his line of descendants, extended over the next 2,000 years. God promised Abraham that his blood line would lead to the realisation of important benefits, for all human beings Genesis 12:3 & 22:18. After 42 generations of circumcised fathers, it ended with the arrival of the foretold descendant, Jesus Christ, a special Son of God who would receive the 'heel blow' referred to at Genesis 3:15, his execution in 33. The term of this Abraham circumcision contract was precisely set to last exactly 2,000 years, from 1968 BC to 33 AD.
Abraham was instructed to illustrate the reason behind this contract, by agreeing to sacrifice his son Isaac Genesis 22:1-12 . The 2,000 year term of this contract would mature with God offering a far greater sacrifice, His own first born Son. A sacrifice which would bring immense benefits to all mankind John 3:16-17, Galatians 3:8, 14, 16, 29.
THE SECOND 2,000 YEAR COVENANT
In 33 the prophesied 'heel' strike took place when this Son of God was executed. His sacrificed life provided a compensatory legal basis, upon which the promised "benefits to all mankind" could be applied. To effect this, Jesus drew up a second working contract Genesis 12:3, Matthew 26:26-28. This new covenant was a construction contract, for the building of a royal administration with 144,000 newly created 'Sons of God'. The blood sacrifice of Jesus validates this second contract for 144,000 human recruits who individually will have their Adamic death disease countermanded by this Son of God's redeeming sacrifice Luke 22:29-30 WHAT IS ORIGINAL SIN IS IT INHERITED. This new Kingdom covenant starting in 33 also lasts exactly 2,000 years until 2033, when all recruiting of 144,000 reborn Sons of God will have been completed. It is these re-born Sons that mankind is waiting to be revealed.
A NEW BIRTH BY GOD'S INCORRUPTIBLE SEED
The terms of the Abraham and Kingdom contracts each span 2,000 years and run consecutively. When the Kingdom contract ends in 2033, a 1,000 year Sabbath reign by the 'Lord of the Sabbath' commences. By the year 2033, all 144,000 redeemed and adopted Sons of God will become revealed when the Kingdom starts ruling. Jesus, after his official coronation as King of Kings in 2033, along with the crowning of a further 144,000 kings, commence ruling, a brotherhood of 'Sons of God' within God's family.
"He said to them, “The Son of Man is lord of the sabbath.” Luke 6 :5.
"Because you are Sons, God has sent the spirit of his Son into our hearts, and it cries out: “Abba, Father!” So you are no longer a slave but a Son; and if a Son, then you are also an heir through God" Gal 4:6-7.
"Those (born again) ones God planed in advance, determining they would become like His Son so he might be the firstborn among many of his brothers" Rom 8:29.
"Jesus said to him: “Most truly I say to you, unless anyone is born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God.” 5 Jesus answered: “Most truly I say to you, unless anyone is born from water and spirit, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God. 7 Do not be amazed because I told you: You people must be born again" John 3:3-7.
"Everyone who has been born from God does not practice sin, for His seed remains in such one, and he cannot practice sin, for he has been born from God" 1 John 3:9.
"For you have been given a new birth, not by corruptible, but by an incorruptible seed, through the word of the living and enduring God" 1 Peter 1:23.

A UNIQUE 'GENERATION' FOLLOWS EACH COVENANT.
After 2,000 years, the Abraham blood line covenant ended when Jesus presented himself illustratively as a King at Jerusalem in 33, Luke 19:35-40. It is followed with a unique period of one 'generation' used to recruit individuals as God's adopted Sons. They become living stones for building into the Kingdom temple Mark 13:30, 1 Peter 2:4-5,9-10. Jesus Christ refers to this generation period at Matthew 24:34, assuring us that a generation period would not end before everything foretold to take place during it had been accomplished, Matthew 24:34 Luke 21:32. See BIBLE GENERATION.
A Bible generation seems to infer a period of time of all those living at one and the same time; it is in this way that Jesus uses it in Matthew 24:34. In this context, the Bible defines the length of this type of generation. Speaking about the rebellious nation of Israel who came out of Egypt under Moses, Yhwh says at Numbers 14:29-33 "all those from 20 years upward who complained against Him would not enter into the promised land; they would live in the wilderness for forty years as a punishment" Numbers 14:29-33. A nomadic wander in the desert was imposed for forty years, until all the offending generation came to their end Numbers 32:13. God counted that generation as lasting 40 years Numbers 14:29-33. Accordingly a Bible generation can confidently be counted as 40 years. This would imply that the things Jesus prophesied to "occur" in the first century generation, would all take place within a 40 year period, beginning in 30 and ending in 70. This particular Jewish generation did come to its end with the destruction of the Jewish system in 70 AD by the Romans. Warnings were given to those 'Sons God' who had been adopted, to get out of the Jewish system before it was destroyed Luke 21:20-24, How Long is a Bible Generation.
The same pattern follows the end of the 2,000 year Kingdom covenant. Once it has completed its recruiting objective, it terminates in 2033. In this year, Jesus is crowned at his true coronation as King of kings to rule Yhwh's Kingdom, Revelation 17:14 & 19:11-16. A second 40 year generation follows the end of this 2,000 year Kingdom covenant. All the events prophesied to occur in this twenty first century generation, will need to be fulfilled and contained within the next 40 year period. This 21st century generation period, will come toward its end with with the destruction of the world religious system of Christendom, parallel for 2070. Once again, warnings will be provided prior to its destruction, to get out of Christendom, the symbolic harlot named Babylon the Great before it is brought to its end, Revelation 18:2-8.
Jesus enumerated many signs to identify his personal 'presence' with his brothers. These adopted 'Sons of God; recruited during these two generation periods. Some of the list of signs were fulfilled during the first century generation, some are repeated during the second 21st century generation, others are fulfilled on a world scale only during the second generation period. During the first century, the 'armed forces' of the Roman army were the desolating thing destroying the Jewish temple and system in 70AD Luke 21:20. In the twenty-first century, the desolating armed forces are described as a 'Scarlet Coloured Wild Beast" Revelation 17:1-18. Corresponding to the Roman army, this beast represents the prevailing modern political world powers. These will be used to destroy 'Babylon the Great', the modern world religious system of Christendom in 2070, exactly 2,000 years after the Jewish system was destroyed in 70AD.
EACH COVENANT ENDS WITH A GENERATION PERIOD
Abraham contract ends
ELIJAH PREPARATION WORK PRECEDES EACH GENERATION
The first 'generation' period started toward the end of the 2,000 year Abraham covenant. It was introduced with announcements made by John the Baptist. Before John was born, he had received power directly from Jesus when passed womb to womb in 2 BC, Luke 1:41-44, Luke 1:66-77. During the early part of the first century, many alert Jews were anticipating the appearance of an Elijah 'type' character who would herald the Messiah. As prophesied, from a 'wilderness' environment, this Elijah like herald appeared in the form of John the Baptist. Quarantined away from any contamination by the religious divisions of Judaism, teaching their man made doctrines. As soon as John reached the age of 30 in April 29, he made his entrance onto the stage proclaiming his message to the covenanted Jewish people, appealing to them to change their ways and prepare themselves Matthew 3:1-4, John 1:23. According to Jesus, this assignment of John's was the most important ever given by God to any human up to this time. John's assignment was to prepare from the covenanted Jewish nation, a group of followers, steering them toward the arriving 'anointed one of God' for a very unique opportunity Luke 1:16-17.
Some 700 years earlier, John's special work had been prophesied by Isaiah at Isaiah 40:3-5 “A voice of one crying out in the wilderness: ‘Prepare the way of Yhwh make his roads straight. v5 Every valley must be filled, and every mountain and hill levelled; the crooked ways must become straight, and the rough ways smooth; v6 and all humanity will see the saving means of God." Luke 3:4-6. John was used to straighten out misleading understandings (make his roads straight) and remove obstacles of religious traditions (every mountain and hill levelled). He clarified Gods directives and smoothed out the approach to the Messiah (the rough ways smooth). He declared there was good news coming from God on how mankind would be saved from death (all humanity will see the salvation of God).
JOHN PREPARED INDIVIDUALS FROM THE ISRAELITE NATION, ALL JEWS WHO RECOGNISED THEY WERE IN A CONTRACT WITH GOD AND BOUND BY ITS CONDITIONS. JOHN STRAITENED THEM OUT IN READINESS FOR THE ONE FOLLOWING AFTER HIM THE MESSIAHJohn was directed to administer a unique water baptism. This involved being submersed, signifying the sinking of the individual's former erroneous ways. They resurface with a clean conscience in order to start a new life, one which could lead to their permanent forgiveness of sin and countermand the death inheritance. John declared someone with greater rank and power would follow him, baptising with fire and spirit, separating people for selection by God. He also warned the apostate Jewish religious system that the axe was already in place to chop it down Luke 3:9. Six months after John starts his assignment, Jesus reaching the age of 30 enters the stage on cue for his baptism in October 29. John starts passing over 'prepared' disciples to Jesus from December 29, identifying him as the great sacrificial Passover lamb, saving first reborn ones for God by removing Adamic sin and its death dealing effects John 1:29. The events of this first "generation period" form a script with rerun application in a second generation performance starting in 2029 START OF JOHN BAPTIST'S MINISTRY.
SECOND PREPARATION WORK
Jesus predicted a second preparation work would take place in the future. A third Elijah (a second John the baptist) preparation work would be activated shortly before the time of Jesus 'second presence' period.
"The disciples put the question to Jesus: “Why, do the scribes say Elijah must come first?” In reply he said: “Elijah is indeed coming and will restore all things (future tense). However, I say to you that Elijah has already come", (past tense) ... Then the disciples perceived that he spoke to them about John the Baptist".Mat 17:10-13.
Comparison Bible translation-
"He answered, "On the one hand, Eliyahu (Elijah) is coming and will restore all things (future): on the other hand, I tell you that Eliyahu has already (past) come ; Mat 17:11-12 The complete Jewish Bible.
Some three months after John was beheaded in 32 AD, Jesus answers this question "why do the scribes say Elijah comes before the Christ?" He explains that John, as the Elijah, had already come and done his preparation work but that another Elijah would be coming, who would once again restore the situation, preparing things ahead this time for Christ's 'second presence'. This future third Elijah work will once again prepare potential individuals to become further 'Sons of God'. The second John the Baptist will again "turn back many of the sons of Israel (Christendom) to Yhwh their God. v17 Also, he will go ahead of him with Elijah’s spirit and power, to turn back the hearts of fathers to children and disobedient ones to the practical wisdom of righteous ones, in order to get ready for Yhwh prepared people.” Luke 1:15-17 JOHN BAPTIST'S MINISTRY .

FROM 100 to 1455AD
After the death of the last apostle John, the predicted apostasy took over, see TRUTH DIES WITH APOSTLES. The Catholic and Eastern churches hijacked the teachings of Jesus and the apostles. Holding complete control of the Bible, they censored and strangled out its truths, replacing them with their own spin doctrines, see APOSTASY AND CREED DOCTRINES. Absolute control over the Bible by the church continued for some 1,350 years, until the invention of the printing press in 1455 which produced the first multiple copies of the Bible. There availability began to lift the church's censorship control, see THE PROTESTANT FIRST AWAKENING. From 1455 on, sincere individuals thirsting for truth and more accurate information from the Bible, carefully studied these printed copies. Their desire was to get back to the original text and its truths in order to be free of church control, John 8:32. Over the next 565 years, many have worked hard, bit by bit refining and retrieving the original text and the true teachings of Christ and the spirit enlightened apostles, along with exposing false man man teachings of the established church. Hundreds of individuals and millions of unpaid man hours have been devoted to this undertaking.
FROM 1455 to 1999AD.
In 1517 Martin Luther and other protestants started to expose some of the more obvious unscriptural teachings of the church, which included:
1. Salvation was by faith, not the mechanical system of the Church and its sale of indulgences.
2. Baptism was for adults, not infants.
3. Jesus Christ is head of the Church, not the Pope.
4. All men are equal in God's sight, church elevating kings or clergy to higher positions was unscriptural.
5. God's revelation is by the Scriptures, not an infallible Pope or clergy class.
6. Protests against the Church's use of images in worship, including kissing of rings, crucifixes and statues.
7. Rejection of Church laws on fasting, tithing, penitence, confession, absolution and indulgences as not Bible based.
8. Objections to the Church use of clergy titles such as Father and forbidding clergy to marry, not Bible taught.
From 1669, Isaac Newton demonstrated the Trinitarian doctrine was incorrect and that the scriptures taught that the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost are each separate and distinct entities. Referring to the Son confessing the Father was greater than him at John 14:28 and calling him his God at John 20:17. The text at 1 John 5:7 in the King James Version, “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost; and these three are one”. Newton, having studied this text in the Vulgate as well as the original Greek, showed that the words “in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost; and these three are one” did not appear in the original Greek manuscripts. Newton advocated that the second coming of Christ would not be in a visible material state. He also allegedly rejected the orthodox doctrines of the immortal soul. Along with these, Newton also made many wrong conclusions but a step in the right direction, see ISAAC NEWTON BIBLE SCHOLAR
From 1820, John Darby studied the scriptures and understood that the first-century apostles were united in knowledge and understanding of God's plan through the controlling effect of God's directive spirit power. That God was still in the process of developing his phased creative plan and purpose. Darby sectioned this plan into seven time divisions. He learned that Christ would return at his second presence and gather all his selected saints by resurrecting those already dead; those living at the time he would call in. Although he believed other wrong assumptions, but still pushed forward see JOHN DARBY.
From 1829, William Miller came to the understanding that the correction for mankind's inherited death induced by Adam, was the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ. That soon, the 1,000 year reign of Christ would start. The saints would be saved and would then begin ruling for 1,000 years. This reasoning was based on God's seventh rest day, being 7,000 years long as were the previous six 'days'. Based on scriptural evidence, he reasoned that the last 1,000 years of this 7,000 year day, would be the Bible 1,000 year reign of Christ. Subtracting 1,000 years from 7,000 would mean the 1,000 year reign would start after 6,000 years had lapsed. Again, some clarifying along with other miscalculations see WILLIAM MILLER
From 1870, Charles Russell took up the batten and reasoned the following. Rejected the trinity doctrine, advocated the doctrine of eternal hell fire punishment was scripturally unsound. That immortality of the soul doctrine was incorrect, that scripture taught 'soul sleep', the condition of all the dead, awaiting resurrection. The second coming of Christ would not be in a visible material state, the second presence would be invisible and not physical. Russell made a concerted effort to reintroduce the proper name of God, which had superstitiously been neglected. He favoured using the popular medieval rendering of the 'Tetragrammaton' Yhwh as Jehovah rather than Yahweh. That Jesus Christ sacrificed himself as a counter-balancing ransom, to counteract the inherited death penalty on mankind. On the basis of this ransom sacrifice, the Bible advocated that humans, worthy or not, would be granted a second chance of life by the mechanism of resurrection, which he understood would take place during the 1,000 year reign of Christ. Russell retrieved much good understanding but sadly connected it all to erroneous dating. See CHARLES RUSSELL
Many labourers have worked in these fields over the last 500 years. These bible researchers, along with many many others, have pushed forward slowly the retrieval of scriptural knowledge, not always correctly, sometimes two steps forward and one step back, yet achieving forward movement.
In order to move further forward, the Bible required cleaning in order to recover more accurate understanding from God's word. The Bible has now under gone a vigorous cleaning out of inaccuracies, additions, alterations and amendments. The most commendable work in the endeavour to retrieve accurate and clean text of the original new testament, was undertaken in 1881 by Westcott and Hort see THE CLEAN UP OF SCRIPTURE. Today, discerning individuals can obtain more accurately translated copies of the Bible.
All this cleaning up of Bible accuracy and the refining its teachings brings us to our twenty first century. In January 1999, a power generated leap in the understanding God's Kingdom timetable occurred. It fulfilled a prophetic time pattern meticulously recorded in the Bible 2000 years earlier.
In January 2BC, Jesus soon after conception while in the womb of Mary, infused special power into John while he was in Elizabeth's womb, causing him to leap in reaction to Jesus' presence and this power transfer. At the time, Elizabeth was 6 months into her pregnancy with John Luke 1:41-44. This set a unique relationship between Jesus and John, affecting the rest of John's life. Programmed in God's timetable, 30 years and 3 months later, John starts his special preparation work in April 29. This power enabled John to understand and carry out the most important assignment any man had ever received from God until then. Whilst isolated under God's close tutorage, he was directed to prepare the way ahead for Jesus' first presence period. It was John's assignment to get ready a group of people for the Messiah, identify and announce the commencement of his ministry (1John 1:33).
Two thousand years, later in 1999, a second power leap occurred in the understanding of God's Kingdom timetable. New information, the 'seeds' of understanding the Great Jubilee time cycle, an 8,000 year restoration plan, how two major covenants both had 2,000 year terms, along with other new information, were posted on the world Internet. Preparations were being laid for a repeat of John the Baptist's work. Although, until God's appointed time arrived for these new 'seeds' to be watered, they would have little effect on men's minds, THE EARLY AND LATE RAIN. Following the "wilderness" pattern, this activity also takes place separated from Christendom's contaminated religions, as in a quarantined "wilderness" like situation. According to the original pattern, exactly thirty years after John received the power leap, he starts his special preparation work this formed a time pattern.
THE SECOND APPLICATION
In April 2029, thirty years after the knowledge leap in 1999, the work of the modern day John the Baptist commences, preparing people for Jesus; second presence. The spirit rain from God which causes these new 'seeds' to grow in the minds and hearts of men, now starts to fall. The modern 'John the Baptist' will again, carry out a great work on behalf of God, preparing and collecting willing volunteers, now Kingdom alert, this time, not from covenanted Judaism, but from the covenant claiming religions of Christendom.
This work requires straightening out misleading beliefs caused by false teachings, removing the obstacles of Christendom's religious traditions and announcing the time of the second presence.
Some of the obstacles removed; Trinity doctrine, Immortal Soul, Hell,
THE SECOND JOHN THE BAPTIST PREPARES INDIVIDUALS FROM CHRISTENDOM'S RELIGIONS. CHRISTIANS WHO CONSIDER THEY ARE PARTY TO THE NEW COVENANT WITH GOD AND BOUND BY ITS RULES. JOHN STRAIGHTENS THEM OUT IN READINESS FOR THE ONE FOLLOWING AFTER HIM AT THE MESSIAHS SECOND PRESENCE.
This information comes from God's new directives, smoothing out the approach to Jesus second presence activity and coming coronation. Advertising good news from God about the coming Kingdom's establishment and its death saving agenda. With God's spirit watering this new Kingdom information, some will manifest a positive attitude to starting a new life. These ones change past erroneous attitudes and actions, and look to receive a rebirth as God's Sons. In 2029, Yhwh turns His full attention again to the earth's affairs, and the modern day religious system of 'Christendom' will undergo inspection.

ADOPTION PROCESS FOR "SONS OF GOD"
Jesus promised some of his disciples in the year 32, they would not die before seeing the Kingdom come to power, "He said to them: “Truthfully I tell you, there are some standing here who will not die before first seeing the Kingdom of God arrive with power” Mark 9:1. The Kingdom project acquired its legal power from Jesus ransoming death. A year later some of these disciples witnessed Jesus sacrificial death, thereby seeing the Kingdom gain its power.
Under God's direction, the transfiguration vision was carefully staged to illustrate the inter-relationship of the works of Elijah, Moses and Jesus. At the end of the vision its importance and authenticity was stamped with God's approval "A voice came out of the cloud, saying: “This is my Son, the one who has been chosen. Listen to him” Luke 9:35. All three characters in the vision were engaged in discussing Jesus, coming sacrificial death Luke 9:31. It was carefully staged, to focus on various aspects associated with this death by highlighting three stages by which on the basis of this death Yhwh would make new creations. "Therefore, if anyone is in union with Christ, he is a new creation; the old things passed away; look! new things have come into existence" 1 Cor 5:17. Special building stones were needed for construction into the Kingdom temple. Requiring a number of humans to be repurchased and elevated to the standard of "Sons of God". This entire project is built upon the basis of the ransoming power of Jesus' death.
Familiar with the Old Testament prophecies, many Jews in Jesus' day anticipated the appearance of Elijah and Moses type characters in conjunction with the Christ "So they (Jewish priests) questioned him (John) and said to him: “Why, then, do you baptize if you are not the Christ or Elijah or the Prophet (Moses)?” John 1:25.
Phase one was an Elijah like work, preparing candidates, which was performed by John the baptist. Followed by a Moses like work which was performed by Jesus. Moses set many patterns prefiguring the work Jesus would carry out, Acts 3:22. He administered the first Passover in Egypt, posting the blood of a sacrificed lamb, saving the lives of all first born males of Israel who were later converted into Priests (Exodus chapter 12 & Numbers 3:40-51). Moses taught the people Yhwh's requirements and set up a covenant between God and the Israelite people. He lead a nation of people for God out of captivity.
Jesus officiates over a far greater Passover, his own blood sacrificed as the Lamb of God that cancels the sin of the world. It is initially applied to removing inherent and personal sins of reborn ones, who will be changed into priests John 1:29. Jesus teaches people about God's Kingdom and sets up a second construction covenant for its building. He takes out of religious captivity a group of people forming them into a nation for God. "You are “a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for special possession, that you should declare abroad the excellencies” of the One who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. For you were once not a people, but now you are God’s people" 1 Peter 2:9-10. All three entities in the vision were focused on Jesus sacrificial death, this death brought the Kingdom project its power. These three phases are employed to facilitate the adoption of 144,000 humans, reborn true "Sons of God".
TRANSFIGURATION SECOND APPLICATION
The three transfiguration phases are repeated. Activated at God's appointed time in this 21st century to acquire the outstanding number of "Sons of God" required to finalise the building of the Kingdom administration. We know the 144,000 'Sons of God' are not completed yet, because when Christ's second presence arrives and the "Sons" collected in during the first century are resurrected, we are informed "In Christ all will be made alive. v23 each one in turn: the Anointed first fruits, after ward those who belong to the Christ during his (second) presence" 1 Cor 15:22.
When these first century brothers of Christ's, adopted during his 'first presence' are made alive again (resurrected) at the time of his 'second presence' a head count is taken of them to ascertain the number required to complete this 144,000. "I saw underneath the altar the souls of those slaughtered because of the word of God and because of the witness they had given. 10 They shouted with a loud voice, saying: “Until when, Sovereign Lord, holy and true, are you refraining from judging and avenging our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” 11 A white robe was given to each of them, and they were told to rest a little while longer, until the number was filled of their fellow slaves and their brothers who were about to be killed as they had been" Rev 6:9-11.
In order to adopt these final Sons, the three phases illustrated in the Transfiguration vision will again need to be used. An Elijah preparation work, followed by a Moses educational work and contract signing enabling the power of Christ's ransom sacrifice to be applied to each of them. The rebirth and adoption process elevates them to God's required standard for true "Sons of God". Becoming anointed ( 'christ's' ) Kings to be converted into Priests administering the value of their own sacrificed lives. They become part of this new nation that belongs to God.
Jesus predicted a third Elijah (or second John the baptist) preparation work would be activated prior to the time of his 'second presence' period. "The disciples questioned him: “Why, do the scribes say Elijah must come first?” In reply he said: “Elijah is indeed coming and will restore all things (future tense). However, I say to you that Elijah has already come", (past tense) ... Then the disciples perceived that he spoke to them about John the Baptist".Mat 17:10-13.
Comparison translation -
"He answered, "On the one hand, Eliyahu (Elijah) is coming and will restore all things(future); on the other hand, I tell you that Eliyahu has come already (past). Mat 17:11-12 The complete Jewish Bible.
It was some three months after John was beheaded in 32 AD, that Jesus answers this question "why do the scribes say Elijah comes before the Christ?" He explains that John had already come and done this preparation work but that another Elijah would be coming who will again restore the situation, preparing things ahead, this time for Christ's 'second presence'. This future Elijah work will again prepare potential individuals for becoming 'Sons of God' and 'living stones' for completing the building of the Kingdom temple with the required 144,000 Kings-Priests. A second 'John the Baptist' will likewise "turn back many of the sons of Israel (Christendom) to Yhwh their God. v17 Also, he will go ahead of him with Elijah’s spirit and power, to turn back the hearts of fathers to children and disobedient ones to the practical wisdom of righteous ones, in order to get ready for Yhwh prepared people.” Luke 1:15-17. JOHN BAPTIST'S MINISTRY.
According to bible chronology in spring 2029, we can expect a reactivated John the Baptist public work to start, proclaiming worldwide the time of Jesus' second presence. A modern day group of followers will be prepared and handed on to the next phase, the Moses education work from the end of 2029. This Moses work to be again undertaken by the anointed King of Kings, who will finalise the gathering of the remaining 144,000 living stones, bringing the term of the 2,000 year Kingdom covenant to its end in spring 2033.
A 'cloaking device' is again provided to these ones, masking or neutralising the effects of their Adamic sin and personal sin. It is as if they die, although not actually undergoing death, and are 'born again' and so acquitted of chargeable sin Romans 6:7. This brings them great rewards as King-Priests but also great responsibility. If they change their position and resist or oppose the spirit power and Kingdom conditions, they commit the 'unforgivable sin', having used up their application of the ransom cure, they have no way back from permanent death Hebrews 6:4-6. They will have committed the same sin as Adam when he was a "Son of God". At the close of the 2,000 year term of the Kingdom contract in April 2033, all 144,000 King-Priests will have been enrolled and sealed in. The Transfiguration vision becomes an amazing illustration depicting the three steps Yhwh uses in gathering 144,000 selected individuals for adoption as His 'Sons' and building into His Kingdom rulership JESUS, ELIJAH & MOSES TRANSFIGURATION..
END OF AN AGE
Jesus disciples asked him: “What will be the sign of your presence and of the conclusion of the age? 4 Jesus answered them: .... 6 You are going to hear of wars and reports of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for these things must take place, but the end is not yet." Mat 24:3-6. Jesus enumerated many signs to potential 'Sons of God' relating to the end of an age or system. Some of these signs apply solely to the first century Jewish age, others apply to a later world age. One sign he presented could only apply to the coming end of a world system.
This sign stipulated that before the "end period" commenced, there would be wars and reports of wars. Since the first century, there have been hundreds of wars in every generation but there have only been two significant world wars, the 1914-18 world war and the second 1939-45 world war involving or affected the entire earth. All mankind since has heard about them. According to Jesus' words, these world wars would take place before the end period starts and become markers as to its closeness "But the end is not yet".
Leading up to the commencement of the "last days", there would be many identifiable signs, significant increases in international uprisings, earthquakes, epidemics and famine, all signs of the approaching final end period. At its commencement Jesus as Yhwh's representative, makes an examination of the world's covenant claiming Christian religions. They, as with the Jewish religious divisions, have also invalidated their contract by their traditions and man made religious doctrines. Revelation, written circa 96AD some 26 years after the Jewish age had ended in 70AD, lists in chapters 1 to 3 the inspection of seven symbolic congregations claiming to serve God. Many make the mistake of concluding these congregations referred to were in existence when John wrote the Revelation and so applied to them. According to the words of Revelation they are wrong these congregations are symbolic references to future Christian religious denominations.
v1 "A revelation by Jesus Christ, which God gave him, to show his slaves the things that must shortly take place. And he sent his angel and presented it in signs through him to his slave John, v10 By inspiration I came to be in the Lord’s day, v20
Seven in the Bible signifies the complete number. Jesus inspection of seven congregations symbolises an inspection of the entire number of Christendom's denominations. According to the Revelation, Jesus, during his inspection period, from 2029 to 2033 he again finds them as institutions unusable and rejects them. During this same period, Jesus is recruiting responding individuals from Christendom to fill the remaining number of vacancies in the 144,000 Revelation 6:11.
TIME PATTERN 29 to 33 HAS A SECOND APPLICATION 2029 to 2033
LORD'S 'DAY' STARTS
Jesus' first presence period (or day) commenced in October 29 when he was baptised. The 'Lord' day' or second presence period referred to in Revelation 1:10, starts exactly two thousand years later in October 2029, when Jesus again commences Kingdom activities. God's meticulously scripted scene, running between October 29 and April 33, has a second performance from October 2029 until April 2033. At the beginning of this 'Lord's day', we are informed events also develop in heaven. Twenty-four elders symbolising the heavenly governing administrations, illustratively cast down their crowns, signifying the resigning of these positions of heavenly authority. These acting spirit officers have been governing and overseeing the vast extremities of the spirit realm for billions of years, now resign Revelation 4:10-11. At this time, they are obliged to relinquish their delegated positions of authority back to God in order to make way for the birth of a 'male child' symbolising the birth of a new heavenly overseeing administration system Revelation 12:5.
BIRTH OF A NEW ADMINISTRATION.
Massive upheaval in heaven occurs as this new Kingdom theocracy starts to be set up. The entire heavenly systems undergo complete reformation. The 'sign' of a woman in heaven with 12 crowns gives birth to this male child. This woman is a symbolic description of the first century Sons after having received their heavenly resurrection Revelation 6:9-11. They cry out for avenging judgement through the Kingdom's legal judicial administration under its lawful King of kings. Illustrated by this symbolic woman crying out in pain and agony to give birth Revelation 12:5, 1Cor 6:2-3. A powerful opposing 'spirit being' endeavours to usurp and destroy this new ruling Kingdom at its birth, Revelation 12:4.
3. RESURRECTION OF 1ST CENTURY MEMBERS OF 144,000.
Those enrolled of the 144,000 have symbolically eaten the flesh of Jesus and drunk his blood by feeding or energized themselves on the ransom power. Using this power, Jesus was able to promise he would resurrect them when the last day started John 6:53-54. Throughout the critical first century generation, these ones complied with their contractual obligations acting as lights to the world, willingly dying sacrificial deaths.
After having been asleep in death for nearly 2,000 years Jesus 'buys' them out of death by a special resurrection. These first heavenly resurrected ones are likened to a woman in pain giving birth. But before they are crowned Kings and appointed Priests, they are told to wait until the final number of 144,000 is completed Revelation 6:9-11. A head count is taken to establish how many places remain vacant. These are filled by purchasing further selected ones from mankind at this time, bringing the final number up to the required 144,000. Once purchased, these last ones also act as lights to the world and are prepared to undergo their sacrificial deaths, as their first century brothers had.
At this time Romans 8:19
4. WAR IN HEAVEN
A full blown propaganda war against the Kingdom breaks out in heaven for three and a half years. Michael, a pre human name of Jesus, along with his loyal resurrected angel brothers, battle this propaganda war with the dragon and his supporting angels Revelation 12:7. The heavens are in a state of turmoil, millions of spirit creatures having operated within the pre Kingdom structure for billions of years, must now become subject to the authority of this new administration. Every inhabitant of the heavens becomes personally involved and affected by this change over. Those opposing it go after the masses of as yet untested spirit inhabitants, throwing out the strongest propaganda campaign they can muster against the Kingdom, battling their arguments with great publicity in God's courts; likened to a river from the Dragon's mouth. It appears a great many are won over, persuaded to side against the Kingdom. There can be no more sitting on the fence, all inhabitants of the heavens have to choose whether they are for God's new Kingdom arrangement or against it Revelation12:15. Millions of spirit beings are apparently dragged off the fence, joining the opposition, the Bible states up to a third of all angels defect of their own choice Revelation 12:4.
5. JESUS AND RESURRECTED SONS FIGHT THIS WAR.
The Lamb and his resurrected spiritual 'brothers' take on this war, forming an invincible force of counter argument and evidence against the rebels propaganda Revelation 12:7. The resurrected witnesses present their evidence, testifying about their own freewill sacrificial deaths. Accurate truth based evidence presented by the Lamb and written in the blood of his associate life sacrificing brothers conquers the libellous slandering propaganda Revelation 12:10.
Revelation 12:11-12 tells us they conquer by the blood of the lamb and their witnessing even in the face of death. Be glad the heavens and you who reside in them! But bad news for the earth because the defeated rebels now exiled from heaven come to the earth with great anger knowing they have only a short period of time remaining. After three and a half years, the propaganda war in heaven is won; the opposition rebel forces defeated and expelled from heaven, Revelation 12:11-12.
6. WAR TRANSFERS TO EARTH.
Millions, some third of all spirit creatures are expelled to earth by April 2033. They have not finished fighting yet. They now turn their attention to the remaining ones of the Kingdom 'Sons' (seeds) recently chosen Revelation 12:17. From May 2033, restricted to the exiled condition referred to as Tartarus, they can no longer affect the affairs of the heavens but they can affect those on the earth. They join the ranks of the criminal rebel angels who were formally confined to Tartarus some 2,400 years earlier at the flood I Peter 3:18-20, 2 Peter 2:4-5. An unprecedented distressing time for the earth starts.
7. REVEALING THE SONS OF GOD AS KINGDOM STARTS RULING.
The newly established Kingdom structure now starts legally ruling all heavenly domains. They can be described as 'New Heavens' (2 Peter 3:13) and will be ruled initially for 1,000 years by this new administration. Jesus along with the resurrected Sons, receive their crowns and thrones in the Kingdom government.
The remaining ones completing the 144,000, are now all recruited and are representing Kingdom interests on earth. In April 2033, the Kingdom commences its 1,000 year rule. These of the first resurrection are happy now to be installed as Priests of God and Kings ruling with Jesus for this 1,000 years, Revelation 20:6. From April 2033, all opposition is now targeted at these remaining members of the Kingdom actively representing it on the earth. Battle for the earth is about to start.

THE PREVIEW AND TRUE CORONATION
Under God's tight over sight and direction, Jesus follows Yhwh's script in creating a future time map when he rode into Jerusalem and was hailed as a king, John 12:13-15. This event was scripted precisely for the 10th of Nisan in the year 33AD, Luke 19:38-40. This time mapping was enacted and recorded in order to plot when the most important coronation in all history would take place. Exactly 2,000 years after Jesus enacted this illustrative presentation of himself as king in April 33, he is crowned King of 144,000 kings in April 2033 and commences ruling. Once installed, this King of king sets about taking over the Kingdom's rightful territories, first the cleansed heavenly domains, to be followed within a generation by all earthly territories. Eventually, the Kingdom government will rule God's entire family, spirit-kind and human-kind, all heavenly and physical territories.
Following the setting up of this Kingdom in 2033, a final 40 year containing generation starts for this earth's system. At this time, the 'appointed times of the nations' end, a 2,000 year period of tolerating the nations trampling on "heavenly Jerusalem" during its time of construction with human stones, Luke 21:24. The trampling commenced in April 33AD, when the first human corner stone of "heavenly Jerusalem" was trampled to death receiving the 'heal' blow, of Genesis 3:15. Followed by thousands more 'living stones' being trampled to death.
JESUS HIGH PRIEST OVER 144,000 UNDER PRIESTS
ISRAELITE FIRST BORN CONVERTED INTO PRIESTS
Passover 33AD becomes the most important date in human history and the central pivot and key to God's entire plan. The date for the death of Jesus Christ was preallocated to the year, month, day and hour some 4,000 years earlier. It was outlined in the original Jewish Passover festival held annually on Nisan 14th. In Egypt, Moses passed on dictated instructions from Yhwh for applying the blood of a sacrificed lamb to save all the first born Israelite males. By marking the outside door posts of their houses, a protective flag was created, causing the 'angel of death' to pass over their homes, holding back inflicting death on any first born inhabitants inside. These preserved first born males of the Israelite families were claimed by God as His property and belonged to Him Exodus 13:2,12-15. They were replaced man for man by males of the priestly tribe of Levi, as there were 273 more male first born than there were Levities. A ransom of 5 shekels was paid for each of these additional ones to the Levites who in turn became Yhwh's Numbers 3:12-13. All 22,273 saved first born males, Yhwh transformed into priests, Numbers 3:39-51. These events were crafted by Yhwh to form a pattern, reflecting a later transferring of another group of "first born" ones into priests.
144,000 CONVERTED INTO PRIESTS
The greater Moses was of course Christ. At God's dictated time, Jesus carried out the 'Greater Passover', his all important ransom sacrifice. The greater passover Lamb provided was Jesus slaughtered body and blood. He then becomes Yhwh's High Priest, officiating over the application of his ransom sacrifice. Jesus applies his body and blood sacrifice, initially to save 144,000 from Adamic and personal sin by means of a unique death and rebirth in order to be adopted by God as His Sons. These first born ones now belong to Yhwh, claimed as His property 1 Peter 1:3-4, 23, Romans 14:7-8. Jesus validated a new covenant, a Kingdom contract for the purchasing of these 144,000 first born ones who would be transferred into positions of priests working under their High Priest, Hebrews 12:22-24, Revelation 7:3-4, 14:3-4, 20:6. The ransom death provided the legal mechanism for these 'first born' Sons of God to be fashioned into Priests in a new spiritual temple in the heavens. They become powerful officiating priests in Yhwh's heavenly temple, not just priests but King / Priests Revelation 1:5, 5:10, 20:4.
All 144,000 happily offer their "reborn lives" in sacrificial deaths, no light undertaking, Romans 6:3-5, Philippians 1:21 & 3:10, Romans 8:36-37. There lives take on a far greater value, having been acquitted of their Adamic and personal sin by this rebirth, purchased by the application of Jesus' ransom sacrifice, Romans 6:2 & 7. Reborn and elevated to God's required standard for Sons in His family, they become new created beings, 'new creations'. Their lives now take on a similar value to Jesus' perfect life as a Son of God. All 144,000 having been reborn as new creations, belong to Yhwh, claimed as His. Being 'christs' themselves, anointed Kings and Priests, when they die, they die illegally and their deaths acquire a positive value and are added to the value of Jesus ransom sacrifice Mark 10:38-39. This accredited value of 144,000 lives, all brothers of Christ's will eventually enable the resurrection of the entire human race. Officiating as Priests in providing all mankind a second opportunity to a better life. A life not subject to the effects of Adamic disease and its resultant ageing and death, a real everlasting life. As priests, they administer the benefits of their sacrificed lives on behalf of mankind under their High Priest, Jesus. As set by the pattern under Moses, Yhwh converts all 144,000 of his claimed first born ones into priests under the oversight of His Great High Priest.
The most exciting events ever to occur are poised. We are living at the threshold of developments that will stand as monuments in history for all time. With promises of better and clearer bible knowledge becoming available, Daniel 12:4. The operation of the spirit 'helper' will soon be reactivate, correcting errors, clarifying events, revealing new things to selected individuals. Opportunity will soon present itself for filling the remaining vacancies in the 144,000, of being 'born again' as Sons of God with the promise of Kingship and Priestly roles in the Kingdom administration.
What now? All people of good will who turn toward God are encouraged to acquire understanding Matthew 13:45-46. Seek and identify the Elijah preparation work announcing these events about to commence Luke 3:4-5. We can look forward to soon seeing the revealing of the Sons of God. Some will again walk this earth Matthew 24:45-47. Show loyalty to God? Get ready for Kingdom opportunities? Will you be one of them?
Following the revealing and identifying of these last of the 144,000 Sons of God carrying out assignments, representing the Kingdom's developing situation to the world. The time will arrive when these born again ones will under spirit direction, reveal new wine understanding from the Revelation signs. Individuals will be able to show support for these Kingdom representative them fulfilling Jesus prophecy at Matthew 25:34-46. Interesting times are close, the Kingdom is at hand.
Secret Mysteries of the Kingdom of God
Kingdom opportunities for Christians of all denominations
" just as through one man sin entered into the world and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because they had all sinned"
1 Corinthians 15:21-22
"For since death came through a man, resurrection of the dead also comes through a man. v22 For just as in Adam all are dying, so also in the Christ all will be made alive".
" I will put enmity between you and the woman and between your offspring and her offspring. He will crush your head, and you will strike him in the heel.”
"he received a sign namely, circumcision as a seal of the righteousness by the faith he had while in his uncircumcised state, so that he might be the father of all those having faith while uncircumcised, in order for righteousness to be counted to them; v12 and so that he might be a father to circumcised offspring, not only to those who adhere to circumcision but also to those who walk orderly in the footsteps of the faith that our father Abraham had while in the uncircumcised state. v13 For it was not through law that Abraham or his offspring had the promise that he should be heir of a world, but it was through righteousness by faith."
"Now the promises were spoken to Abraham and to his offspring. It does not say,“and to your descendants,” in the sense of many. Rather, it says, "and to your offspring,” in the sense of one, who is Christ".
"But the gift is not like the trespass. For if by one man’s trespass many died, how much more did the undeserved kindness of God and his free gift by the undeserved kindness of the one man, Jesus Christ, abound to many! v16 Also, it is not the same with the free gift as with the way things worked through the one man who sinned. For the judgment after one trespass was condemnation, but the gift after many trespasses was a declaration of righteousness. v17 For if by the trespass of the one man death ruled as king through that one, how much more will those who receive the abundance of the undeserved kindness and of the free gift of righteousness rule as kings in life through the one person, Jesus Christ! v18 So, then, as through one trespass the result to men of all sorts was condemnation, so too through one act of justification the result to men of all sorts is their being declared righteous for life. v19 For just as through the disobedience of the one man many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one person many will be made righteous".
"Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice v29 and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment".
“For this reason I say to you, every sort of sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the spirit will not be forgiven. v32 For example, whoever speaks a word against the Son of man, it will be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the holy spirit, it will not be forgiven him, no, not in this system of things nor in that to come".
"by the seventh day, God had completed the work that he had been doing, and he began to rest on the seventh day from all his work that he had been doing. v3 And God went on to bless the seventh day and to declare it sacred, for on it God has been resting from all the work that he has created, all that he purposed to make. v4 This is a history of the heavens and the earth in the time they were created, in the day that Yhwh God made earth and heaven".
"Further, God blessed them, and God said to them:“Be fruitful and become many, fill the earth and subdue it, and have in subjection the fish of the sea and the flying creatures of the heavens and every living creature that is moving on the earth.”
"This is a history of the heavens and the earth in the time they were created, in the day that Yhwh God made earth and heaven".
"Therefore, since a promise of entering into his rest remains, let us be on guard for fear someone among you seems to fall short of it. v2 For we have also had the good news declared to us, just as they had; but the word that they heard did not benefit them, because they were not united by faith with those who listened.v3 For we who have exercised faith do enter into the rest, just as he has said: “So I swore in my anger, ‘They will not enter into my rest,’”although his works were finished from the founding of the world. v4 For in one place he has said of the seventh day as follows: “And God rested on the seventh day from all his works,” v5 and here again he says: "They will not enter into my rest.” v6 Therefore, since it remains for some to enter into it, and those to whom the good news was first declared did not enter in because of disobedience, v7 he again marks off a certain day by saying long afterward in David’s psalm, “Today”; just as it has been said above, “Today if you listen to his voice, do not harden your hearts.” v8 For if Joshua had led them into a place of rest, God would not afterward have spoken of another day. v9 So there remains a sabbath-rest for the people of God. v10 For the man who has entered into God’s rest has also rested from his own works, just as God did from his own. v11 Let us therefore do our utmost to enter into that rest, so that no one may fall into the same pattern of disobedience".
Leviticus 25: 20-22
“‘But if you should say: “What will we eat in the seventh year if we may not sow seed or gather our crops?” v21 I will command my blessing for you in the sixth year, and the land will yield a crop sufficient for three years. v22 Then you will sow seed in the eighth year and eat from the old crop until the ninth year. Until its crop arrives, you will eat from the old".
Genesis 12:3 & 22:18
vs3 "... all the families of the ground will certainly be blessed by means of you.”
vs 18 "And by means of your offspring all nations of the earth will obtain a blessing for themselves because you have listened to my voice.’”
"Now after this the true God put Abraham to the test, .. v2 Then he said: “Take, please, your son, your only son whom you so love, Isaac, and travel to the land of Mo·ri′ah and offer him up there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains that I will designate to you.” v3 .. he rose and traveled to the place that the true God indicated to him. v6 Then he took in his hands the fire and the knife, and the two of them walked on together. v9 Finally they reached the place that the true God had indicated to him, and Abraham built an altar there and arranged the wood on it. He bound his son Isaac hand and foot and put him on the altar on top of the wood. v10 Then Abraham reached out his hand and took the knife to kill his son. v11 But Yhwh's angel called to him from the heavens and said: “Abraham, Abraham!” to which he answered: “Here I am!” v12 Then he said: “Do not harm the boy, and do not do anything at all to him, for now I do know that you are God-fearing because you have not withheld your son, your only one, from me.”
“For God loved the world so much that he gave his only-begotten Son, so that everyone exercising faith in him might not be destroyed but have everlasting life. v17 For God did not send his Son into the world for him to judge the world, but for the world to be saved through him".
Galatians 3:8, 14, 16, 29
v8 "Now the scripture, foreseeing that God would declare people of the nations righteous through faith, declared the good news beforehand to Abraham, namely: “By means of you all the nations will be blessed.”
v14 "This was so that the blessing of Abraham would come to the nations by means of Christ Jesus, so that we might receive the promised spirit through our faith.
v16 "Now the promises were spoken to Abraham and to his offspring. It does not say, “and to your descendants,” in the sense of many. Rather, it says, “and to your offspring,” in the sense of one, who is Christ.
v29 "Moreover, if you belong to Christ, you are really Abraham’s offspring, heirs with reference to a promise".
"I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who calls down evil on you, and all the families of the ground will certainly be blessed by means of you.”
"As they continued eating, Jesus took a loaf, and after saying a blessing, he broke it, and giving it to the disciples, he said: “Take, eat. This means my body.” v27 And taking a cup, he offered thanks and gave it to them, saying: “Drink out of it, all of you, v28 for this means my ‘blood of the covenant,’ which is to be poured out in behalf of many for forgiveness of sins".
" I make a covenant with you, just as my Father has made a covenant with me, for a kingdom, v30 so that you may eat and drink at my table in my Kingdom, and sit on thrones to judge the 12 tribes of Israel".
"they threw their outer garments on the colt and seated Jesus on it. v36 As he moved along, they were spreading their outer garments on the road. v37 As soon as he got near the road down the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and to praise God with a loud voice because of all the powerful works they had seen, v38 saying: “Blessed is the one coming as the King in Yhwh's name! Peace in heaven, and glory in the heights above!” v39 However, some of the Pharisees from the crowd said to him: “Teacher, rebuke your disciples.”v40 But in reply he said: “I tell you, if these remained silent, the stones would cry out.”
"Truly I say to you that this generation will by no means pass away until all these things happen".
1 Peter 2:4-5,9-10
vs 4-5 "As you come to him, a living stone rejected by men but chosen, precious to God,v5 you yourselves as living stones are being built up into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, in order to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ."
vs 9-10 "But you are “a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for special possession, that you should declare abroad the excellencies” of the One who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.v10 For you were once not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not been shown mercy, but now you have received mercy."
"Truly I say to you that this generation will by no means pass away until all these things happen".
"Truly I say to you that this generation will by no means pass away until all things happen".
"So Yhwh's anger blazed against Israel and he made them wander about in the wilderness for 40 years, until all the generation that was doing evil in the eyes of Yhwh came to its end!".
"In this wilderness your corpses will fall, yes, the whole number of you from 20 years old and up who were registered, all of you who have murmured against me. v30 None of you will enter into the land that I swore to have you reside in except Ca′leb the son of Jephunneh and Joshua the son of Nun. v31“‘“And I will bring in your children, who you said would become plunder, and they will get to know the land that you have rejected. v32 But your own corpses will fall in this wilderness.v33 Now your sons will become shepherds in the wilderness 40 years, and they will have to answer for your acts of unfaithfulness until the last one of your corpses falls in the wilderness."
"However, when you see Jerusalem surrounded by encamped armies, then know that the desolating of her has drawn near. v21 Then let those in Ju·de′a begin fleeing to the mountains, let those in the midst of her leave, and let those in the countryside not enter into her, v22 because these are days for meting out justice in order that all the things written may be fulfilled. v23 Woe to the pregnant women and those nursing a baby in those days! For there will be great distress on the land and wrath against this people.v24 And they will fall by the edge of the sword and be led captive into all the nations; and Jerusalem will be trampled on by the nations until the appointed times of the nations are fulfilled".
Revelation 17:14 & 19:11-16
"These will battle with the Lamb, but because he is Lord of lords and King of kings, the Lamb will conquer them. Also, those with him who are called and chosen and faithful will do so.”
19:11-16 I saw heaven opened, and look! a white horse. And the one seated on it is called Faithful and True, and he judges and carries on war in righteousness. v12 His eyes are a fiery flame, and on his head are many diadems. He has a name written that no one knows but he himself, v13 and he is clothed with an outer garment stained with blood, and he is called by the name The Word of God. v14 Also, the armies in heaven were following him on white horses, and they were clothed in white, clean, fine linen.v15 And out of his mouth protrudes a sharp, long sword with which to strike the nations, and he will shepherd them with a rod of iron. Moreover, he treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty. v16 On his outer garment, yes, on his thigh, he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords".
Revelation 18: 2-8
"And he cried out with a strong voice, saying: “She has fallen! Babylon the Great has fallen, and she has become a dwelling place of demons and a place where every unclean spirit and every unclean and hated bird lurks! v3 For because of the wine of the passion of her sexual immorality, all the nations have fallen victim, and the kings of the earth committed sexual immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth became rich owing to the power of her shameless luxury.”v4 And I heard another voice out of heaven say: “Get out of her, my people, if you do not want to share with her in her sins, and if you do not want to receive part of her plagues. v5 For her sins have massed together clear up to heaven, and God has called her acts of injustice to mind. v6 Repay her in the way she treated others, yes, pay her back double for the things she has done; in the cup she has mixed, mix a double portion for her. v7 To the extent that she glorified herself and lived in shameless luxury, to that extent give her torment and mourning. For she keeps saying in her heart: ‘I sit as queen, and I am not a widow, and I will never see mourning.’ v8 That is why in one day her plagues will come, death and mourning and famine, and she will be completely burned with fire, because Yhwh God, who judged her, is strong".
“However, when you see Jerusalem surrounded by encamped armies, then know that the desolating of her has drawn near".
" I will show you the judgment on the great prostitute who sits on many waters, v2 with whom the kings of the earth committed sexual immorality, and earth’s inhabitants were made drunk with the wine of her sexual immorality.” v3 .. I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet-colored wild beast that was full of blasphemous names and that had seven heads and ten horns. v4 The woman was clothed in purple and scarlet, and she was adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, and she had in her hand a golden cup that was full of disgusting things and the unclean things of her sexual immorality. v5 On her forehead was written a name, a mystery:“Babylon the Great, the mother of the prostitutes and of the disgusting things of the earth.” v6 And I saw that the woman was drunk with the blood of the holy ones and with the blood of the witnesses of Jesus. .. v8 The wild beast that you saw was, but is not, and yet is about to ascend out of the abyss, and it is to go off into destruction. And the inhabitants of the earth—those whose names have not been written in the scroll of life from the founding of the world—will be amazed when they see how the wild beast was, but is not, and yet will be present.
v9 “This calls for a mind that has wisdom: The seven heads mean seven mountains, where the woman sits on top. v10 And there are seven kings: Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet arrived; but when he does arrive, he must remain a short while. v11 And the wild beast that was but is not, it is also an eighth king, but it springs from the seven, and it goes off into destruction. v12 “The ten horns that you saw mean ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but they do receive authority as kings for one hour with the wild beast. v13 These have one thought, so they give their power and authority to the wild beast. v14 These will battle with the Lamb, but because he is Lord of lords and King of kings, the Lamb will conquer them. Also, those with him who are called and chosen and faithful will do so.” v15 He said to me: “The waters that you saw, where the prostitute is sitting, mean peoples and crowds and nations and tongues.v16 And the ten horns that you saw and the wild beast, these will hate the prostitute and will make her devastated and naked, and they will eat up her flesh and completely burn her with fire. v17 For God put it into their hearts to carry out his thought, yes, to carry out their one thought by giving their kingdom to the wild beast, until the words of God will have been accomplished. v18 And the woman whom you saw means the great city that has a kingdom over the kings of the earth.”
"Well, as Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the infant in her womb leaped, and Elizabeth was filled with holy spirit v42 and loudly cried out: “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruitage of your womb! v43 So how is it that this privilege is mine, to have the mother of my Lord come to me? v44 For look! as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the infant in my womb leaped for joy".
"And all who heard noted it in their hearts, saying: “What will this young child turn out to be?” For the hand of Yhwh was indeed with him v67. Then Zechari′ah his father was filled with holy spirit, and he prophesied, saying:v68 “Let Yhwh be praised, the God of Israel, because he has turned his attention to his people and has brought them deliverance. v69 And he has raised up a horn of salvation for us in the house of David his servant, v70 just as he has spoken through the mouth of his holy prophets from of old, v71 of a salvation from our enemies and from the hand of all those hating us; v72 to show mercy in connection with our forefathers and to call to mind his holy covenant, v73 the oath that he swore to Abraham our forefather, v74 to grant us, after we have been rescued from the hands of enemies, the privilege of fearlessly rendering sacred service to him v75 with loyalty and righteousness before him all our days. v76 But as for you, young child, you will be called a prophet of the Most High, for you will go ahead of Yhwh to prepare his ways, v77 to give knowledge of salvation to his people by forgiveness of their sins,"
"In those days John the Baptist came preaching in the wilderness of Judea, saying: “Repent, for the Kingdom of the heavens has drawn near.”v3 This, in fact, is the one spoken of through Isaiah the prophet in these words: “A voice of one calling out in the wilderness: ‘Prepare the way of Yhwh! Make his roads straight.’”v4 "Now John was clothed with camel’s hair and had a leather belt around his waist. His food was locusts and wild honey".
"He said: “I am a voice of someone crying out in the wilderness, ‘Make the way of Yhwh straight,’ just as Isaiah the prophet said.”
"he will turn back many of the sons of Israel to Yhwh their God. v17 Also, he will go ahead of him with Elijah’s spirit and power, to turn back the hearts of fathers to children and the disobedient ones to the practical wisdom of righteous ones, in order to get ready for Yhwh a prepared people.”
"Indeed, the axe is already lying at the root of the trees. Every tree, then, that does not produce fine fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.”
"The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and he said: “See, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!"
"From the days of John the Baptist until now, the Kingdom of the heavens is the goal toward which men press, and those pressing forward are seizing it".
"He also gave an illustration to them: “Nobody cuts a patch from a new outer garment and sews it on an old garment. If he does, then the new patch tears away and the patch from the new garment does not match the old. v37 Also, no one puts new wine into old wine skins. If he does, the new wine will burst the wine skins and it will be spilled out and the wine skins will be ruined. v38 But new wine must be put into new wine skins. v39 No one after drinking old wine wants new, for he says, ‘The old is nice.’”
"So you have made the word of God invalid because of your tradition. v7 You hypocrites, Isaiah aptly prophesied about you when he said: v8 ‘This people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far removed from me. v9 It is in vain that they keep worshipping me, for they teach commands of men as doctrines.’”
"Thus you make the word of God invalid by your tradition that you have handed down.”
"Because the days will come upon you when your enemies will build around you a fortification of pointed stakes and will encircle you and besiege you from every side. v44 They will dash you and your children within you to the ground, and they will not leave a stone upon a stone in you, because you did not discern the time of your being inspected.”
"Furthermore, he said to them: “Truly I say to you that there are some of those standing here who will not taste death at all until first they see the Kingdom of God already having come in power.”
"In fact, Moses said: ‘Yhwh your God will raise up for you from among your brothers a prophet like me.You must listen to whatever he tells you".
"The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and he said: “See, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!"
"For the one who has died has been acquitted from his sin".
"For as regards those who were once enlightened and who have tasted the heavenly free gift and who have become partakers of holy spirit v5 and who have tasted the fine word of God and powers of the coming system of things, v6 but have fallen away, it is impossible to revive them again to repentance, because they nail the Son of God to the stake again for themselves and expose him to public shame".
"the 24 elders fall down before the One seated on the throne and worship the One who lives forever and ever, and they cast their crowns before the throne, saying: v11 “You are worthy, Yhwh our God, to receive the glory and the honor and the power, because you created all things, and because of your will they came into existence and were created.”
"she gave birth to a son, a male, who is to shepherd all the nations with an iron rod. And her child was snatched away to God and to his throne".
“Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign when all these things are to come to a conclusion?” v5 So Jesus began to tell them: “Look out that nobody misleads you. v6 Many will come on the basis of my name, saying, ‘I am he,’ and will mislead many. v7 Moreover, when you hear of wars and reports of wars, do not be alarmed; these things must take place, but the end is not yet."
"When he opened the fifth seal, I saw underneath the altar the souls of those slaughtered because of the word of God and because of the witness they had given. v10 They shouted with a loud voice, saying: “Until when, Sovereign Lord, holy and true, are you refraining from judging and avenging our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” v11 And a white robe was given to each of them, and they were told to rest a little while longer, until the number was filled of their fellow slaves and their brothers who were about to be killed as they had been."
"And she gave birth to a son, a male, who is to shepherd all the nations with an iron rod. And her child was snatched away to God and to his throne."
1 Cor 6:2-3
"Or do you not know that the holy ones will judge the world? And if the world is to be judged by you, are you not competent to try very trivial matters?v3 Do you not know that we will judge angels? Then why not matters of this life?
"its tail drags a third of the stars of heaven, and it hurled them down to the earth. And the dragon kept standing before the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she did give birth, it might devour her child!".
"Jesus said to them: “Most truly I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, you have no life in yourselves.v54 Whoever feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood has everlasting life, and I will resurrect him on the last day".
"war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels battled with the dragon, and the dragon and its angels battled"
"the serpent spewed out water like a river from its mouth after the woman, to cause her to be drowned by the river."
"I heard a loud voice in heaven say: “Now have come to pass the salvation and the power and the Kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ, because the accuser of our brothers has been hurled down, who accuses them day and night before our God!"
"And they conquered him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their witnessing, and they did not love their souls even in the face of death. v12 On this account be glad, you heavens and you who reside in them! Woe for the earth and for the sea, because the Devil has come down to you, having great anger, knowing that he has a short period of time.”
"So the dragon became enraged at the woman and went off to wage war with the remaining ones of her offspring,who observe the commandments of God and have the work of bearing witness concerning Jesus".
I Peter 3:18-20
"For Christ died once for all time for sins, a righteous person for unrighteous ones, in order to lead you to God. He was put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit.v19 And in this state he went and preached to the spirits in prison, v20 who had formerly been disobedient when God was patiently waiting in Noah’s day, while the ark was being constructed, in which a few people, that is, eight souls, were carried safely through the water".
2 Peter 2:4-5
"Certainly God did not refrain from punishing the angels who sinned, but threw them into Tartarus, putting them in chains of dense darkness to be reserved for judgment. v5 And he did not refrain from punishing an ancient world, but kept Noah, a preacher of righteousness, safe with seven others when he brought a flood upon a world of ungodly people".
"Happy and holy is anyone having part in the first resurrection; over these the second death has no authority, but they will be priests of God and of the Christ, and they will rule as kings with him for the 1,000 years".
"So they took branches of palm trees and went out to meet him, and they began to shout: “Save, we pray you! Blessed is the one who comes in Yhwh's name, the King of Israel!” v14 When Jesus found a young donkey, he sat on it, just as it is written: v15 “Have no fear, daughter of Zion. Look! Your king is coming, seated on a donkey’s colt.”
"Blessed is the one coming as the King in Yhwh's name! Peace in heaven, and glory in the heights above!” v39 However, some of the Pharisees from the crowd said to him: “Teacher, rebuke your disciples.” v40 But in reply he said: “I tell you, if these remained silent, the stones would cry out.”
"they will fall by the edge of the sword and be led captive into all the nations; and Jerusalem will be trampled on by the nations until the appointed times of the nations are fulfilled".
"Or do you not know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? v4 So we were buried with him through our baptism into his death, in order that just as Christ was raised up from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we also should walk in a newness of life. v5 If we have become united with him in the likeness of his death, we will certainly also be united with him in the likeness of his resurrection. v6 For we know that our old personality was nailed to the stake along with him in order for our sinful body to be made powerless, so that we should no longer go on being slaves to sin".

Can you drink the cup that I am drinking or be baptized with the baptism with which I am being baptised?” v39 They said to him: “We can.” At that Jesus said to them: “The cup I am drinking, you will drink, and with the baptism with which I am being baptised, you will be baptised".
v2“Set aside to me every firstborn male among the Israelites. The first male to be born, of both human and animal, belongs to me.”
v12 "you must devote to Yhwh every firstborn male, .. The males belong to Yhwh. v13 ... every firstborn male of your sons you are to redeem. v15 When Phar′aoh stubbornly refused to send us away, Yhwh killed every firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of man to the firstborn of beast. That is why I am sacrificing to Yhwh all the firstborn males, and I redeem every firstborn of my sons".
“As for me, look! I take the Levites from among the Israelites in place of all the firstborn of the Israelites, and the Levites will become mine. v13 For every firstborn is mine. In the day that I struck every firstborn in the land of Egypt, I set aside to myself every firstborn in Israel from man to beast. They are to become mine. I am Yhwh.”
"All the Levite males from a month old and up, whom Moses and Aaron registered by their families at the order of Yhwh, were 22,000. v40 Then Yhwh said to Moses: “Register all the firstborn males of the Israelites from a month old and up, count them, and make a list of their names. v41 You must take the Levites for me, I am Yhwh, in place of all the firstborn of the Israelites,..” v43 The number of all the firstborn males who were registered by name from a month old and up was 22,273. v44 Yhwh continued to speak to Moses, saying: v45 “Take the Levites in place of all the firstborn among the Israelites, ... and the Levites must become mine. I am Yhwh. v46 As the ransom price of the 273 of the firstborn of the Israelites who are in excess of the Levites, v47 you are to take five shekels for each individual, according to the standard shekel of the holy place. A shekel is 20 ge′rahs. v48 You are to give the money to Aaron and his sons as the ransom price of those who are in excess of them.” v49 So Moses took the money of the redemption price from those who were in excess of the ransom price of the Levites. v50 He took the money from the firstborn of the Israelites, 1,365 shekels, according to the standard shekel of the holy place. v51 Then Moses gave the money of the ransom price to Aaron and his sons according to the word of Yhwh, just as Yhwh had commanded Moses".

"Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, for according to his great mercy he gave us a new birth to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, v4 to an incorruptible and undefiled and unfading inheritance. It is reserved in the heavens for you,"

"Not one of us (anointed), in fact, lives with regard to himself only, and no one dies with regard to himself only. v8 For if we live, we live to Yhwh, and if we die, we die to Yhwh. So both if we live and if we die, we belong to Yhwh".
"you have approached a Mount Zion and a city of the living God, heavenly Jerusalem, and myriads of angels v23 in general assembly, and the congregation of the firstborn who have been enrolled in the heavens, and God the Judge of all, and the spiritual lives of righteous ones who have been made perfect, v24 and Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and the sprinkled blood,"

14:3-4 "they are singing what seems to be a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and the elders, and no one was able to master that song except the 144,000, who have been bought from the earth. v4 These are the ones who did not defile themselves with women; in fact, they are virgins. These are the ones who keep following the Lamb no matter where he goes. These were bought from among mankind as firstfruits to God and to the Lamb,"

"I saw a wild beast ascending out of the sea, with ten horns and seven heads, and on its horns ten crowns, but on its heads blasphemous names. v2 Now the wild beast that I saw was like a leopard, but its feet were like those of a bear, and its mouth was like a lion’s mouth. And the dragon gave to the beast its power and its throne and great authority. v3 I saw that one of its heads seemed to have been fatally wounded, but its mortal wound had been healed, and all the earth followed the wild beast with admiration. v4 And they worshipped the dragon because it gave the authority to the wild beast, and they worshipped the wild beast with the words: “Who is like the wild beast, and who can do battle with it?”v5 It was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and it was given authority to act for 42 months.v6 And it opened its mouth in blasphemies against God to blaspheme his name and his dwelling place, even those residing in heaven."
"When they have finished their witnessing, the wild beast that ascends out of the abyss will wage war with them and conquer them and kill them. v8 And their corpses will be on the main street of the great city that is in a spiritual sense called Sodom and Egypt, where their Lord was also executed on the stake".

I watched until its wings were plucked out, and it was lifted up from the earth and was made to stand up on two feet like a man, and it was given the heart of a man. v5 “And look! another beast, a second one, like a bear. It was raised up on one side, and three ribs were in its mouth between its teeth; and it was told, ‘Get up, eat much flesh.’ v6 “After this I kept watching, and look! another beast, like a leopard, but on its back it had four wings like those of a bird. And the beast had four heads, and it was given authority to rule".
"Now the wild beast that I saw was like a leopard, but its feet were like those of a bear, and its mouth was like a lion’s mouth. And the dragon gave to the beast its power and its throne and great authority. v3 I saw that one of its heads seemed to have been fatally wounded, but its mortal wound had been healed, and all the earth followed the wild beast with admiration. v4 And they worshipped the dragon because it gave the authority to the wild beast, and they worshipped the wild beast with the words: “Who is like the wild beast, and who can do battle with it?”
"Then I saw another wild beast ascending out of the earth, and it had two horns like a lamb, but it began speaking like a dragon. v12 It exercises all the authority of the first wild beast in its sight. And it makes the earth and its inhabitants worship the first wild beast, whose mortal wound was healed. v13 And it performs great signs, even making fire come down out of heaven to the earth in the sight of mankind. v14 It misleads those who dwell on the earth, because of the signs that it was permitted to perform in the sight of the wild beast, while it tells those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the wild beast that had the sword-stroke and yet revived. v15 And it was permitted to give breath to the image of the wild beast, so that the image of the wild beast should both speak and cause to be killed all those who refuse to worship the image of the wild beast. v16 It puts under compulsion all people, the small and the great, the rich and the poor, the free and the slaves, that these should be marked on their right hand or on their forehead, v17 and that nobody can buy or sell except a person having the mark, the name of the wild beast or the number of its name".
“And just as you saw the feet and the toes to be partly of clay of a potter and partly of iron, the kingdom will be divided, but some of the hardness of iron will be in it, just as you saw the iron mixed with soft clay. v42 And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, so the kingdom will be partly strong and partly fragile. v43 Just as you saw iron mixed with soft clay, they will be mixed with the people; but they will not stick together, one to the other, just as iron does not mix with clay. v44 “In the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed. And this kingdom will not be passed on to any other people. It will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, and it alone will stand forever,"
"This is where it calls for wisdom: Let the one who has insight calculate the number of the wild beast, for it is a man’s number, and its number is 666".
"I will cause my two witnesses to prophesy for 1,260 days dressed in sackcloth.” v4 These are symbolized by the two olive trees and the two lampstands and are standing before the Lord of the earth. v5 If anyone wants to harm them, fire comes out of their mouths and consumes their enemies. If anyone should want to harm them, this is how he must be killed. v6 These have the authority to shut up the sky so that no rain may fall during the days of their prophesying, and they have authority over the waters to turn them into blood and to strike the earth with every sort of plague as often as they wish. v7 When they have finished their witnessing, the wild beast that ascends out of the abyss will wage war with them and conquer them and kill them. v8 And their corpses will be on the main street of the great city that is in a spiritual sense called Sodom and Egypt, where their Lord was also executed on the stake. v9 And those of the peoples and tribes and tongues and nations will look at their corpses for three and a half days, and they do not allow their corpses to be laid in a tomb. v10 And those dwelling on the earth rejoice over them and celebrate, and they will send gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented those dwelling on the earth".
1 Corinthians 15:51-52
"Look! I tell you a sacred secret: We will not all fall asleep in death, but we will all be changed, v52 in a moment, in the blink of an eye, during the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised up incorruptible, and we will be changed".
" I say to you: You are Peter, and on this rock I will build my congregation, and the gates of the Grave will not overpower it. v19 I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of the heavens, and whatever you may lock on earth will already be locked in the heavens, and whatever you may unlock on earth will already be unlocked in the heavens” (the heavens predicate who will or will not be released by unlocking on earth with the keys).
Acts 2:1-4 14,17, 32-33, 38
"Now while the day of the Festival of Pentecost was in progress, they were all together at the same place. v2 Suddenly there was a noise from heaven, just like that of a rushing, stiff breeze, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. v3 And tongues as if of fire became visible to them and were distributed, and one came to rest on each one of them, v4 and they all became filled with holy spirit and started to speak in different languages, just as the spirit enabled them to speak".
v14 "But Peter stood up with the eleven and spoke to them in a loud voice: “Men of Judea and all you inhabitants of Jerusalem, let this be known to you and listen carefully to my words. v17‘“And in the last days,” God says, “I will pour out some of my spirit on every sort of flesh, and your sons and your daughters will prophesy and your young men will see visions and your old men will dream dreams, v32 God resurrected this Jesus, and of this we are all witnesses. v33 Therefore, because he was exalted to the right hand of God and received the promised holy spirit from the Father, he has poured out what you see and hear. v38 Peter said to them: “Repent, and let each one of you be baptised in the name of Jesus Christ for forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the free gift of the holy spirit".
Acts 10:1-5 11-46
"Now there was a man in Caesare′ named Cornelius, an army officer in what was called the Italian unit. v2 He was a devout man who feared God together with all his household, and he made many gifts of mercy to the people and made supplication to God continually. v3 About the ninth hour of the day, he saw plainly in a vision an angel of God come in to him and say: “Cornelius!” v4 Cornelius stared at him, terrified, and asked: “What is it, Lord?” He said to him: “Your prayers and gifts of mercy have ascended as a remembrance before God. v5 So now send men to Joppa and summon a man named Simon who is called Peter.
v11 and (Peter) saw heaven opened and something descending like a great linen sheet being let down by its four corners on the earth; v12 and in it were all sorts of four-footed animals and reptiles of the earth and birds of heaven. v13 Then a voice said to him: “Get up, Peter, slaughter and eat!” v14 But Peter said: “Not at all, Lord, because I have never eaten anything defiled and unclean.” v15 And the voice spoke again to him, the second time: “Stop calling defiled the things God has cleansed.”
v19 As Peter was still pondering over the vision, the spirit said: “Look! Three men are asking for you. v22 They said: “Cornelius, an army officer, a righteous and God-fearing man who is well-reported-on by the whole nation of the Jews, was given divine instructions by a holy angel to send for you to come to his house and to hear what you have to say.” v24 The following day he entered into Caes·a·re′a. Cornelius, of course, was expecting them and had called together his relatives and close friends. v25 As Peter entered, Cornelius met him, fell down at his feet, and did obeisance to him. v26 But Peter lifted him up, saying: “Rise; I too am just a man.” v27 As he conversed with him, he went in and found many people assembled.
v28 He said to them: “You well know how unlawful it is for a Jew to associate with or approach a man of another race, and yet God has shown me that I should call no man defiled or unclean. v29 So I came, really without objection, when I was sent for. Therefore, I ask you why you sent for me.” v30 Then Cornelius said: “Four days ago counting from this hour, I was praying in my house at the ninth hour; just then a man in bright clothing stood in front of me v31 and said: ‘Cornelius, your prayer has been favorably heard, and your gifts of mercy have been remembered before God. v32 Therefore, send to Joppa and call for Simon who is called Peter. This man is a guest in the house of Simon, a tanner, by the sea.’ v33 I then sent for you at once, and you were kind enough to come here. So now we are all present before God to hear all the things you have been commanded by Yhwh to say.”
v34 At this Peter began to speak, and he said: “Now I truly understand that God is not partial, v35 but in every nation the man who fears him and does what is right is acceptable to him. v36 He sent out the word to the sons of Israel to declare to them the good news of peace through Jesus Christ, this one is Lord of all. v37 You know the subject that was talked about throughout all Judea, starting from Galilee after the baptism that John preached: v38 about Jesus who was from Nazareth, how God anointed him with holy spirit and power, and he went through the land doing good and healing all those oppressed by the Devil, because God was with him. v39 And we are witnesses of all the things he did both in the country of the Jews and in Jerusalem; but they did
