. I am taking a few days off to rest, (?) but in the midst of everything that is happening in the Spirit, and in the nations, I want to remind all of us….
. there is a pattern in the book of The Revelation. I have spoken of it many times. This is the pattern: WORSHIP. JUDGMENT. WORSHIP for that righteous JUDGMENT.
. once we are aware of that pattern, the book of The Revelation becomes a revelation!
. Revelation 1:1 Amplified. This is the revelation of Jesus Messiah (His unveiling of the divine mysteries), God gave it to Him to disclose and make known to His bond servants certain things which must shortly and speedily come to pass in their entirety. And He sent and communicated it through His angel (messenger) to His bond servant John, who has testified to and vouched for all that he saw (in his visions), the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Messiah.
. once we see this pattern, we realize that we need not be afraid or dismayed at this great multitude; for the battle is not ours, but the Lords. we shall not need to fight in this battle. we take our position. we stand still, and WORSHIP Him, and we will see the deliverance of the Lord. Who is with us. once we see this pattern, we can fear not; we can stand still (firm, confident, undismayed) and WORSHIP Him, and see the salvation of the Lord…the Lord will fight for us and we shall hold our peace and remain at rest.
. what do we see in the book of The Revelation? (we are blessed, first of all, just because we read it out loud, and hear it and keep it!)
. chapter 5. … in the right hand of Him that sat upon the throne…a book…Who is worthy to open the book…? no man…I wept much…one of the elders said…Weep not: BEHOLD, THE LION OF OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH, THE ROOT OF DAVID, HATH PREVAILED TO OPEN THE BOOK, AND TO LOOSE THE SEVEN SEALS THEREOF. and I beheld, and lo, in the midst of the throne….stood a Lamb…and He came and took the book…and when He had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders FELL DOWN BEFORE THE LAMB, having every one of them HARPS and GOLDEN VIALS FULL OF ODOURS, which are the prayers (Strongs NT #4335. WORSHIP) of the saints. and they sang a new song, saying, THOU ART WORTHY TO TAKE THE BOOK, AND TO OPEN THE SEALS THEREOF; FOR THOU WAST SLAIN, AND HAST REDEEMED US TO OUR GOD BY THY BLOOD OUT OF EVERY KINDRED, AND TONGUE, AND PEOPLE, AND NATION; AND HAST MADE US UNTO OUR GOD KINGS AND PRIESTS; AND WE SHALL REIGN ON THE EARTH. I beheld…voice of many angels…round the throne…the beasts…the elders…the number of them ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands, saying with a loud voice, WORTHY IS THE LAMB THAT WAS SLAIN TO RECEIVE POWER, AND RICHES, AND WISDOM, AND STRENGTH, AND HONOUR, AND GLORY, AND BLESSING…every creature in heaven…on the earth…under the earth…in the sea…all that are in them, heard I saying, BLESSING, AND HONOUR, AND GLORY, AND POWER, BE UNTO HIM THAT SITTETH UPON THE THRONE, AND UNTO THE LAMB FOREVER AND EVER…the four beasts said, AMEN. and the four and twenty elders FELL DOWN and WORSHIPED HIM THAT LIVETH FOREVER AND EVER.
. chapter 6. the Lamb begins to open the seals. JUDGMENT begins on the earth…
. chapter 7. after this I beheld, and lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, STOOD BEFORE THE LAMB, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; and cried with a loud voice, saying, SALVATION TO OUR GOD WHICH SITTETH UPON THE THRONE, AND UNTO THE LAMB…all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and FELL BEFORE THE THRONE on their faces, and WORSHIPED God, saying, AMEN; BLESSING, AND GLORY, AND WISDOM, AND THANKSGIVING, AND HONOUR, AND POWER, AND MIGHT, BE UNTO OUR GOD FOREVER AND EVER. AMEN…
. chapter 8. seventh seal opened. silence. another angel came and stood at the altar…golden censer…much incense…offered it with the prayers ( Strongs NT #4335, WORSHIP) of all saints upon the golden altar…before the throne. smoke of the incense…prayers (WORSHIP) of the saints, ascended up before God. …cast it into the earth. there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake. JUDGEMENT on the earth. an angel flying…saying with a loud voice to the inhabitors of the earth, Woe,woe,woe…
. chapter 9. seven thunders. JUDGMENT on the earth.
. chapter 11. Rise. measure the temple…and the altar, and them that WORSHIP therein. v. 15. seventh angel sounds. great earthquake. seven thousand slain. they were afraid. GAVE GLORY TO THE GOD OF HEAVEN… there were great voices in heaven, saying, THE KINGDOMS OF THIS WORLD HAVE BECOME THE KINGDOMS OF OUR LORD, AND OF HIS CHRIST; AND HE SHALL REIGN FOREVER AND EVER. and the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, FELL UPON THEIR FACES, and WORSHIPED God, saying, WE GIVE THEE THANKS, O LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, WHICH ART, AND WAST, AND ART TO COME; BECAUSE THOU HAST TAKEN THY GREAT POWER, AND HAST REIGNED… the temple of God was opened in heaven. ….lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.
. chapter 12. a woman clothed with the sun…being with child…travailing in birth…pained to be delivered…a great red dragon…war in heaven…the dragon prevailed not…cast out… and I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, NOW IS COME SALVATION AND STRENGTH, AND THE KINGDOM OF OUR GOD, AND THE POWER OF HIS CHRIST: FOR THE ACCUSER OF OUR BRETHREN IS CAST DOWN, WHICH ACCUSED THEM BEFORE OUR GOD DAY AND NIGHT. and they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and the WORD of their testimony….
. chapter 14:1-7. I heard a voice from heaven…the voice of HARPERS, HARPING with their HARPS: and they sang as it were A NEW SONG BEFORE THE THRONE…another angel, saying with a loud voice, fear God and GIVE GLORY to Him; for the hour of His JUDGEMENT is come:…WORSHIP Him… there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen…behold a white cloud…upon the cloud one sat…another angel…thrust in thy sickle…the earth is reaped…another angel came out of the temple…having a sharp sickle…another angel from the altar which had power over fire…gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God. the winepress was trodden…blood came out…
. chapter 15. seven angels. seven last plagues; in them…the wrath of God. those that had gotten victory over the beast…having the HARPS OF GOD. and they sing the song of Moses, the servant of God and the song of the Lamb, saying, GREAT AND MARVELOUS ARE THY WORKS, LORD GOD ALMIGHTY; JUST AND TRUE ARE THY WAYS, THOU KING OF SAINTS. WHO SHALL NOT FEAR THEE, O LORD, AND WHO SHALL NOT GLORIFY THY NAME? FOR THOU ONLY ART HOLY; FOR ALL NATIONS SHALL COME AND WORSHIP BEFORE THEE; FOR THY JUDGMENTS ARE MADE MANIFEST…and after that…and behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened…seven angels came out…having seven plagues…seven golden vials full of the WRATH OF GOD, who liveth forever and ever…temple filled with smoke…no man able to enter till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.
. chapter 16. and I heard a great voice…pour out the vials of the WRATH OF GOD upon the earth…the first went, and poured out his vial…the second angel poured out his vial…the third poured out his vial…and I heard the angel of the waters say, THOU ART RIGHTEOUS, O LORD, WHICH ART, AND WAST, AND SHALT BE, BECAUSE THOU HAST JUDGED THUS…EVEN SO, LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, TRUE AND RIGHTEOUS ARE THY JUDGMENTS. and the fourth poured out his vial…and the fifth poured out his vial…and the sixth poured out his vial…and the seventh poured out his vial…a great voice from heaven, from the throne, saying, It Is Done. and there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings, a great earthquake, so great…the great city divided…the cities of the nations fell…and Babylon came into remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His WRATH…
. chapter 17. seven angels. seven vials. JUDGMENT of the the great whore…Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother of Harlots and abominations of the earth…
. chapter 18. babylon the great is fallen, is fallen…habitation of devils…the hold of every foul spirit…a cage of every unclean and hateful bird…all nations have drunk….I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partaker of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues…how much hath she glorified herself…therefore shall her plagues come in one day…Alas, alas, that great city…for in one hour…come to nought…and they cast dust on their heads…weeping and wailing…Alas, alas, that great city…for in one hour…REJOICE over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her…and in her was found the blood of the prophets, and of the saints…and those slain upon the earth.
. chapter 19. I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, ALLELUIA; SALVATION, AND GLORY, AND HONOUR, AND POWER, UNTO THE LORD OUR GOD; 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…ALLELUIA. and her smoke rose up forever and ever. and the four and twenty elders and the four beasts FELL DOWN and WORSHIPED GOD that sat on the throne, saying, AMEN; ALLELUIA. and a voice came out of the throne, saying, PRAISE OUR GOD, all ye His servants, and ye that fear Him, both small and great. 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 LORD GOD OMNIPOTENT REIGNETH. LET US BE GLAD AND REJOICE, AND GIVE HONOUR TO HIM; for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife hath made herself ready…
. chapter 20. I saw an angel come down from heaven…key of the bottomless pit…a great chain in his hand…the dragon…that old serpent…the devil…Satan…bound him a thousand years…
. WHEW! I have to stop here! that was rough! do you see the pattern? do you see in the book of The Revelation one of the divine mysteries? do you see how JUDGEMENT was sandwiched all around and in between all of that great WORSHIP? all through the book? do you see that we need not be dismayed at this great multitude? do you see that the battle is not ours, but the Lord’s? do you see that we shall not need to fight this battle? we take our position. we stand still. we WORSHIP Him. and we will see the deliverance of the Lord. Who is with us.(He inhabits that WORSHIP!) once we see this pattern, we can fear not. once we see this pattern, and begin to live a lifestyle of WORSHIP, we can stand still, firm, confident, undismayed. we WORSHIP Him. we will see the salvation of the Lord.
. we do not WORSHIP Him in order for Him to do anything! we WORSHIP Him because He is worthy!
. WORSHIP. JUDGEMENT. WORSHIP FOR THAT RIGHTEOUS JUDGEMENT.
