Revelation Beatitudes of the Everlasting Gospel – Part 5


Revelation 14:6,7 – And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, [7] Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

There are seven beatitude blessings in Revelation. The fifth blessing is one that involves the degree to which the saved will be allowed to reign with Christ during his millennial reign.

Revelation 20:6 – Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

All the saved, the dead crucified and resurrected with him, will live with him a thousand years, but to what degree will they reign with him? Could it be that those saved who live with him will reign with him to the same degree they served him after they were saved? Could it be that those who denied him service after he eternally saved their souls, will be denied the right to reign with him to the same degree those who did not deny him that service? Could it be the saved, that were unwilling to suffer the emotional and physical rejection associated with their belief, will not have much of a role in his kingdom?

II Timothy 2:11,12 – It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him: [12] If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us:

Paul died with Christ, as do all believers, the moment they trust in him to save them, but after his salvation he lived his life in submission to the Christ who indwelled him. Could it be possible that those who do the same will be given reigning assignments in Christ’s kingdom that are more fulfilling that those who did not?

Galatians 2:20,21 – I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. [21] I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.

Could it be possible the saved, who work at mortifying (putting to death) the sins of the flesh in their bodies, will be given more satisfying assignments in eternity than those who did not? Is it possible that the saved will reap what they sow?

Colossians 3:1-10 – If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. [2] Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. [3] For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. [4] When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory. [5] Mortify (put to death) therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: [6] For which things' sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience: [7] In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them. [8] But now ye also put off all anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth. [9] Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds; [10] And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:

Galatians 6:7-9 – Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. [8] For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. [9] And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

Colossians 3:23-25 – And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; [24] Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ. [25] But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.

II Coronthians 5:9,10 – Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him. [10] For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

Ephesians 2:8-10 – For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: [9] Not of works, lest any man should boast. [10] For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

James 1:17-25 – Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. [18] Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures. [19] Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: [20] For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. [21] Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls. [22] But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. [23] For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: [24] For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. [25] But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

Revelation Beatitudes of the Everlasting Gospel – Part 6


Revelation 14:6,7 – And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, [7] Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

There are seven beatitude blessings in Revelation. The sixth blessing involves the blessing God has for those that pay attention to the book of Revelation by keeping what is written in it.

Revelation 22:7– Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.

II Corinthians 5:10 – For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

There are church members today, who are saved and justified by the blood of Christ, that live unjust lives. There are church members today, who are saved and justified by the blood of Christ, that live filthy lives. There are church members, who were justified by the blood of Christ, that live righteous lives. There are church members, who were justified by the blood of Christ, who live holy (set apart from the world) lives. If you don’t believe this, check the church history of any local church, or try to pastor one for any length of time. The key words in the verses that follow are quickly and still. The word quickly is an adverbial modifier used as a descriptive adjective, which refers not to “when” he is coming, but to the manner in which he will come at the rapture. According to Paul it will be as quickly as the human eye blinks. The word still is used in each of the four types in Revelation 22:11 to remind the reader his coming will be so quick they will be caught in whatever state they are living, with no chance for repentance and a change in their lifestyle. It is God’s way of telling the reader he needs to continually being found in living a righteous, set apart, life, or he will see they are caught in their routine life style when Jesus comes to get him.

Revelation 22:11,12 – He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. [12] And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.

Could it be that part of the reward will be exhibited in the glory of the individual resurrected? Could it be possible that a child of God reaps what he or she sows? Could it be that some bodies will be more glorious that others according to the degree they sowed to the Spirit? So also in I Corinthians 15:42 is a conclusion drawn to the verses that precede it.

I Corinthians 15:38,41,42 – But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body. [41] There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory. [42] So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:

Could it be that the one said to overcome in Revelation represents a church member, who was still found living a righteous, set apart life, when he or she died a natural death or was taken at the rapture?

Revelation 3:19-22 – As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. [20] Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. [21] To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. [22] He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Revelarion 2:7 – He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

Revelation 2:25-29 – But that which ye have already hold fast till I come. [26] And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: [27] And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. [28] And I will give him the morning star. [29] He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Revelation 21:22 – And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.

If there is no temple in the final heaven of the new earth and heaven, then is Revelation 3:11-13 not talking about the millennial reign of Christ, and Ezekiel’s temple. Is not the new Jerusalem a future promise that those who end up in the millennial city complex will also be in the final heaven age New Jerusalem city.

Revelation 3:11-13 – Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. [12] Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. [13] He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

This is the final heaven age Kingdom city of the New Jerusalem in Revelation 21:21-26, which follows the 1000 year reign of Christ on this present earth.

Revelation 21:21-26 – And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass. [22] And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. [23] And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. [24] And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it. [25] And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there. [26] And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.

Is it not reasonable that all the saved will be there in both the millennial and final kingdom ages, but the faithful ones will live inside the city complexes and the unfaithful ones will live outside? Does a child of God not reap what he or she sows?

Revelation 22:1-7 – And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. [2] In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. [3] And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: [4] And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads. [5] And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever. [6] And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done. [7] Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.

We started Part 6 with Revelation 22:7, and now we end with it. Those who keep the sayings of this book will be blessed to the degree that they kept them.

Revelation 22:7 – Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.

Revelation 21:7 – He that overcometh shall inherit ALL things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

Revelation Beatitudes of the Everlasting Gospel – Part 7


Revelation 14:6,7 – And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, [7] Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

There are seven beatitude blessings in Revelation. The seventh blessing is for souls saved by the blood of the Lamb that washed them, who then go on to apply the same blood to wash their visible outer garment, which is seen by the world in their daily lives.

Revelation 22:12-14 (Final Heaven Age) – And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. [13] I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. [14] Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

Church members, who wash their robes by applying his blood to their lives they live in the Spirit by submission to his Spirit, will be allowed to enter into the gates of the city and eat the fruit of the tree of life, which is Christ.

Revelation 2:7 – He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

Revelation 21:1,2 – (Final Heaven Age) And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. [2] And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

Revelation 22:16,17 – I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. [17] And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. (It flows beyond the gates)

Revelation 22:1-5 – (Final Heaven Age) And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. [2] In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. (they will float on the water as it flows outside the city to the unfaithful saved living outside it).

Revelation 21:24 – And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.

Those living in the city will receive the blessing which is described in Revelation 22:4.

Revelation 22:4 (Final Heaven Age) – And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.

Those living in the Millennial Complex of Ezekiel 40 to 48 are described in Revelation 7:13-15. There is no temple in the Final Heaven Age.

Revelation 7:13-15 (Millennial Reign) – And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? [14] And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. [15] Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.

Revelation 21:22 – (Final Heaven Age) – And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.
