[I normally do not teach on prophecy but I feel lead to look at the last four chapters of Revelation as being in chronological order. So with that in mind we will see what the future promises for Yahweh’s children.]
(Rev 19:1-4 KJV) And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and magnificence, and honour, and power, unto the Yahweh our Almighty: 19:2 For true and righteous are His judgments: for He hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand. 19:3 And again they said, Alleluia. And her smoke rose up for ever and ever. 19:4 And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped Almighty that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia.
(1Ch 29:11 KJV) Thine, O Yahweh, is the greatness, and the power, and the magnificence, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O Yahweh, and thou art exalted as head above all.
[If there are many/much people in heaven then the resurrection has taken place. Yahweh has judged the earth and avenged the blood of His servants. Yahweh has always had those that love Him here on this earth as we can hear from David. They are the minority now but one day all will love Him and each other.]
(Isa 62:4-5 KJV) Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate: but thou shalt be called Hephzibah, and thy land Beulah: for Yahweh delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married. 62:5 For as a young man marrieth a virgin, so shall thy sons marry thee: and as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride, so shall thy Almighty rejoice over thee.
(Hos 2:17-23 KJV) For I will take away the names of Baalim out of her mouth, and they shall no more be remembered by their name. 2:18 And in that day will I make a covenant for them with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven, and with the creeping things of the ground: and I will break the bow and the sword and the battle out of the earth, and will make them to lie down safely. 2:19 And I will betroth thee unto Me for ever; yea, I will betroth thee unto Me in righteousness, and in judgment, and in loving kindness, and in mercies. 2:20 I will even betroth thee unto Me in faithfulness: and thou shalt know Yahweh. 2:21 And it shall come to pass in that day, I will hear, saith Yahweh, I will hear the heavens, and they shall hear the earth; 2:22 And the earth shall hear the corn, and the wine, and the oil; and they shall hear Jezreel. 2:23 And I will sow her unto Me in the earth; and I will have mercy upon her that had not obtained mercy; and I will say to them which were not My people, Thou art My people; and they shall say, Thou art my Almighty.
(Rev 19:5-10 KJV) And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our Almighty, all ye His servants, and ye that fear Him, both small and great. 19:6 And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Most High Almighty omnipotent reigneth. 19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to Him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. 19:8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. 19:9 And He saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And He saith unto me, These are the true sayings of Almighty. 19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And He said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Yahshua: worship Almighty: for the testimony of Yahshua is the spirit of prophecy.
[Yahweh reigns and the marriage supper and the bride are ready. All has been made right with the bride and her white robes show she has put all uncleanness from her and accepted the righteousness of Yahshua.]
(Rev 19:11-21 KJV) And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and He that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He doth judge and make war. 19:12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns; and He had a name written, that no man knew, but He Himself. 19:13 And He was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and His name is called The Word of Almighty. 19:14 And the armies which were in heaven followed Him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. 19:15 And out of His mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it He should smite the nations: and He shall rule them with a rod of iron: and He treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty Yahweh. 19:16 And He hath on his vesture and on His thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND MASTER OF MASTERS. 19:17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and He cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great Almighty; 19:18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great. 19:19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him that sat on the horse, and against His army. 19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. 19:21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of Him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of His mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.
[John 1.1 tells us the Word of Almighty is Yahshua.]
(Isa 63:1-6 KJV) Who is this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? this that is magnificent in His apparel, travelling in the greatness of His strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save. 63:2 Wherefore art thou red in thine apparel, and thy garments like him that treadeth in the winefat? 63:3 I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people there was none with me: for I will tread them in Mine anger, and trample them in My fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon My garments, and I will stain all My raiment. 63:4 For the day of vengeance is in Mine heart, and the year of My redeemed is come. 63:5 And I looked, and there was none to help; and I wondered that there was none to uphold: therefore Mine own arm brought salvation unto Me; and My fury, it upheld Me. 63:6 And I will tread down the people in Mine anger, and make them drunk in My fury, and I will bring down their strength to the earth.
[Here is the promise of Revelation 19 given hundreds of years before His appearance. Why are there no people to help Him? Rev. 19.4 says there were a great many people in heaven and vengeance is taking place on the earth. Isa. 63.4 states this is taking place in the year of the redeemed.]
(Rev 20:1-3 KJV) And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 20:2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, 20:3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.
(Luk 8:30-31 KJV) And Yahshua asked him, saying, What is thy name? And he said, Legion: because many devils were entered into him. 8:31 And they besought Him that He would not command them to go out into the deep.
(Jud 1:6 KJV) And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, He hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
[The demons know what their end will be, are we as sure as they? The end of sin is not yet for verse 3 lets us know there will be a final testing at the end of a thousand years of peace, while the redeemed are removed from the earth? Or do they return at the beginning of the thousand years?]
(Eze 37:1-10 KJV) The hand of Yahweh was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of Yahweh, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones, 37:2 And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry. 37:3 And He said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Most High Yahweh, Thou knowest. 37:4 Again He said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of Yahweh. 37:5 Thus saith the Most High Yahweh unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live: 37:6 And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am Yahweh. 37:7 So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone. 37:8 And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them. 37:9 Then said He unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Most High Yahweh; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live. 37:10 So I prophesied as He commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.
(Eze 37:11-19 KJV) Then He said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts. 37:12 Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Most High Yahweh; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel. 37:13 And ye shall know that I am Yahweh, when I have opened your graves, O My people, and brought you up out of your graves, 37:14 And shall put My spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I Yahweh have spoken it, and performed it, saith Yahweh. 37:15 The word of Yahweh came again unto me, saying, 37:16 Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel his companions: 37:17 And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand. 37:18 And when the children of thy people shall speak unto thee, saying, Wilt thou not shew us what thou meanest by these? 37:19 Say unto them, Thus saith the Most High Yahweh; Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in mine hand.
(Eze 37:20-28 KJV) And the sticks whereon thou writest shall be in thine hand before their eyes. 37:21 And say unto them, Thus saith the Most High Yahweh; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land: 37:22 And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all: 37:23 Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwelling places, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be My people, and I will be their Almighty. 37:24 And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in My judgments, and observe My statutes, and do them. 37:25 And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob My servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children's children for ever: and my servant David shall be their prince for ever.
37:26 Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set My sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore. 37:27 My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their Almighty, and they shall be My people. 37:28 And the heathen shall know that I Yahweh do sanctify Israel, when My sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.
(Dan 7:27 KJV) And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey Him.
(Rev 20:4-6 KJV) And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Yahshua, and for the word of Almighty, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Messiah a thousand years. 20:5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. 20:6 Blessed and set-apart is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of Almighty and of Messiah, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.
[Verse 4 tells us this is after the 7th trumpet for these have passed that test and are now enjoying time with Yahshua. Daniel and Ezekiel looked forward to this time the same as we do.]
(2Pe 3:4-8 KJV) And saying, Where is the promise of His coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. 3:5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of Almighty the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: 3:6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: 3.7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of unrighteous men. 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Most High as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
(Isa 65:17-25 KJV) For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind. 65:18 But be ye glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy. 65:19 And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in My people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying. 65:20 There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed. 65:21 And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them. 65:22 They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of My people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands. 65:23 They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of Yahweh, and their offspring with them. 65:24 And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear. 65:25 The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent's meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My set-apart mountain, saith Yahweh.
[Is the time what we would call 1000 years or not? Does it matter? For those taking part it will be what they need and have waited for. Isaiah definitely speaks of a new heaven and a new earth therefore it belongs possibly in the 1000 years spoken of in Revelation. So we will have work to do and we will enjoy the fruits of our labor without persecution. The animals will be at peace with each other and with us. The promise of instant communion with Yahweh without having to wait for His answer. It will be more than enough for me.]
