him all right we are going to begin with a prayer aspire has for prayer and will begin our father in heaven I asked as we study the holy book of Revelation today in your Bible which would help us understand what is true I asked for this gift in the name of Jesus amen the last time that we were discussing Revelation chapter thirteen we spent most like I'm discussing the relation of the forty two months the time of the forty two months to the events and the rest of chapter and we establish the forty two months prior to the killing of the deadly wound the following after all the beast we talked about that the fire coming down from heaven and how it relates to Elijah and possible understandings of it related for example the Pentecostal movement were parking up to heaven in the day of Pentecost today were looking at verse relation thirteen and verse fifteen relation thirteen a verse fifteen this is just after the issue of miracles we talked about how miracles are all through the Bible on means of deception and the end of time relation thirteen verse fifteen and he had power to give life unto the image of the beast that the image of the beast should both speak and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed and he causes all both small and great to rich and poor free and what's the next word bond to receive a mark in their right hand Oregon therefore hats a few observations as revelation virgin indicated there will be slaves in the end of time there was a time when the man that made mockery of of Ellen White in early writings because she speaks about slaves in the end of time the slave being released from his master piece inconsistency of someone believing the Bible making market nonwhites on the on that basis but more than that you realize that by modern estimates that more slaves in the world today than any time prior in earth history where are most of them India the majority of slaves are in India but is America devoid of them in fact America has very many of them the forms of unpaid domestic goods are illegal aliens and are held captive because of their illegal status so National Geographic had an entire feature addition of slavery in America and slavery in the world really was was was on the featured America just the year before last some verse fifteen what is the punishment for not worshiping the image of the beast is that so the image of the beast while the image of the beast indicates our directs forced the beast is the image of the beast received worship itself in verse fifteen demand worship the image of the beast you know they do and we have no indication of any sort of met are going to raise the like sing praise songs to apostate Protestantism or that they're going to sing praise songs to the pulp for that matter what kind of worship is being discussed here it's the kind of worship of honoring our house is right is the worship of honoring that someone with the prerogatives of the creator that is what rights come with being creator the right to for example to forgive the right to create law the right to determine purpose when men are honored with the attributes that belong to the creator that is worship I went on display and use in what sense the Bible is predicting that men are going to worship the image of the beast not price also prostate Protestantism the Mark of the beast is it receives in one place or to not let me try questioning us know what I want to ask the seal of God is even the four head and in the hands the sealed guys received in the four head in Revelation chapter seven which is draws its imagery from Deuteronomy where the law of God is a symbol in the four had and in the hand it's in both but the mark of the beast is in either there is a difference between a both in either that is God requires a heart religion that's in the mind that manifests itself in holy actions sources say he that has clean hands and a clean heart God requires both the whole has always been willing to accept hypocritical worship the obvious and the temptation of Jesus with the devil revealed in contrast to Jesus is a willingness to accept heartless insincere workshop of what ever kind and for whatever motive numbers the devil is not so interested in receiving the praise as he has in leading the disobedience even willing to accept Jesus back down to him just for the purpose of getting things he offered it he offered a bribe for worship so what can memory Stephen verse seventeen they can receive the mark or the name or the number this is a point that was brought out in the revelation series by John's to couple days ago he bought out what people are condemned for it in the seven last flags look at Revelation sixteen verse Revelation sixteen and verse two and the first two went and poured out his vial upon the earth and their fellow noise and angry it is sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast and up on them which worshiped his image so we need a victory over the market of these over the beast over the name of the beast over the number of his name review Herdman John talked about this he correlated these four entities before our good beast that image the mark in the name dimension relation thirteen fourteen fifteen sixteen with the first four commandments that is is the worship of the beast versus the worship of the Lamb first commandment also have no other God before me it's the worship of that image versus the worship of the Lamb segmenting is also not make it to the any MS-DOS not bow down thyself to them nor serve them the contest is between the name of God father new Jerusalem are for heads and receiving the name of the beast very apparently worried you receive his name could be in the four head was the third commandment doesn't not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain of course we know from other study that these are professedly Christian entities taking the name of Jesus but in vain do they worship me teaching for doctrines the commandments of men and what's the mark it's the substitutes or counterfeit worship day the mark of the papacy 's authority summer chapter fourteen now and I looked in low a Lamb stood on the Mount Zion and within a hundred and forty and four thousand having his father 's name written in their forehands so there you should contest between the names in relation seven what's written in the forehead or what's in the four head Cecile of God but in Revelation fourteen what is in the forehead is the father 's name is the same class that has both marks the hundred favor thousand both Chapter seven fourteen the seal of God is here unless there's two things were in the four had its the same as the father 's name is the character of God his lobbying written into the heart verse two overs also those in verse fourteen that is has written and therefore heads as opposed to stand and therefore heads or tattooed and therefore has its written in the four head word we find something being written in the mind and the Bible absolutely that's exactly sealed the law among my disciples the writing of the law of God it's so clear when we look at the illustrations are given chapter fourteen Amber looking at verse three and they sung as it were a new song before the throne and before the four beasts and the elders and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand which were redeemed from the air very apparently the hundred free four thousand are going to be a special class even in heaven as its parent here that their privileges in heaven others don't have I'd like to highlight for you an idea of the timing of the first five verses of Revelation chapter fourteen they would be better to connect in your mind to chapter thirty King Chapter thirteen takes us all the way from the time of Jesus to the contest over the mark of the beast to those that have the picture of the mark of the beast on an favorite thousand may find them in heaven already there with the seal of God still in them and they learn a song that no one else can learn and have it already regained in Revelation fourteen they been reading so what is the song I want to suggest to you that this is a song of experience it's an experience that is described in this chapter as being as being a song that no one else can learn it looks like it's named in chapter fifteen as the song of Moses and the song of the Lamb and if you think through what Moses and Jesus had in common you'll get an idea of what this song is about Moses and Jesus was most is the sinless man now he was Moses and Jesus had two things in common they were agents in giving the law and they offered their soul as a sacrifice to save guilty men during Moses did that and I pray the if not blot out my name out of the book which thou has written this is the experience that is going to characterize the hundred and forty four thousand that is that they are the ones who have prayed earnestly for a fallen church that they could have wished themselves accursed from Christ for their brother and her kinsman according to denomination question refer ever I was quoting from Romans nine Paul said that he had praise for the Jews that he could wish himself accursed from Christ if it would benefit his brother and his kinsmen it is other Jews vast experience of Jesus is going to be the express letter for four thousand Romans chapter nine we give your verse Romans chapter nine in verse three for I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brother and my kinsmen according to the flesh it's Romans nine three is just illustrating the same experience that Moses had to express that Moses had that Jesus had asked experience of intercession of a love for followed people that would be willing to trade places with them that would mean they could go to heaven did not accept the offering of Moses for his fellows know he didn't he said those that send against me that will I blot out of my book but he didn't spare them from immediate destruction when Moses prayed and what kind of answer will God get to the prayer of the hundred and forty four thousand who give them the answer that he will not immediately destroy the church but will give the people a chance to repent and some well in most law there is another experience of the hundred River thousand will share with Jesus and will be the experience of feeling forsaken of God that's why I've wondered at times this flap shows and in my own heart if I received the first black you're the first plug falls on says it falls on those that worship the beast and worshiped his image of me to place myself that I received that previous sore I'm going to hold onto my integrity continue to worship God what do I mean by that I mean that I look at the experience of Joe I look at the experience of the time of trouble when I read the inexplicable inexplicable experience of God 's people not knowing whether or not the accepted of God after the plagues fall it would not shock me in the end that if God allowed his people to receive the first flag as a test of their fidelity my sentence could happen no I'm saying that there are some other way we are going to wonder if we are accepted with God are going to have to hold on to our integrity in the face of the belief that God has forsaken us and left us to destruction Jesus have to do that he did verse four these are they which were not defiled with women they are virgins there's a lot I learned in connection with verse four for example unless it is right that when you become a Christian all things are made new old things are passed away does this passage mean of the day they were born these people grew up at Sabbath keeping Seventh-day Adventist no remains of an born-again their new creature their old experienced babble and has been wiped away and washed away until they were defiled with the spiritual horse prior now the concert virgins you I learned that from reading and rising where God says is when you look up the term virgin daughter I mean a bigger computer and take us to Isaiah the virgin daughter of Israel lasted the Isaiah Jeremiah Isaiah thirty seven Isaiah thirty seven verse twenty two this is the word which the Lord hath spoken concerning him the Virgin the daughter of Zion hath despised the end laugh data scorn the daughter of Jerusalem have shaken her head at the whom hast thou reproached and blasphemed against tumor cells altered by voice destroyed Hezekiah destroyed Hezekiah where the Assyrian is making fun of Israel listen with Israel in this situation a would I have called her a virgin daughter this is Hezekiah whose father was one of the most wicked rulers ever in the history of Judah this is in Judah which is still full of idols and idolaters and their children and yet under the revival independence of Hezekiah how does he refer to his church he calls her a virgin it is incredible it's along the lines of incredible that you find when it a lot looks down at Israel and God set surveillance I have not beheld iniquity in Jacob to know what the minor prophet says about that he looked this up for me Mister William I think it's in Micah Vegas Micah six begone returning the marketplace there were looking for where it says learn look at Baylor they limit in Micah okay Micah chapter six and looking at verse five old my people remember now what they like King of Moab consulted and what they learn the sin of the your answered him from shittim unto Gil Gail listen that you may know what the righteousness of the Lord if you want to understand the righteousness of God what story does God refer you to it's the story of Balin and then display the answer the villain gets any read that and who in support God asks person to unveil him is asked to do is to curse Israel and what does God say to bail him I have not beheld iniquity and Jacob just how incredible that is a million people are than million converted people and animals looking out they were a million people minority of which were consecrated a million people most of which were corrupted heart and what does God say about them I have not beheld iniquity in check this is the same Jacob the just a few days later experienced bill POR did God turn he did he turned his position he slew them Antonia was the same people when they read all I'm saying right now center and explain this idea of relation fourteen that these people are virgins that this is not a reference to the fact that they have always been faithful to reference the fact that they have become faithful I know a man that said to to his girlfriend was to become his fiancée that he considered her to be a virgin no she wasn't one because she had become a Christian after her worldly cycle that letter out of her virginity he was communicating the same crime idea to turn Revelation fourteen know what it what it evangelicals teach about these men they teach that they are literal oh two young men who have never been involved with women they virtually teach whether they mean to or not the God of place as a spiritual premium applying that the unmarried I think of finance countered by the teaching of Scripture these are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goes these were redeemed from among men being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb now the idea firstfruits in other already was a firstfruits before the raw hundred forty four thousand GSS and the those outside with MR taken down with him were firstfruits does that make the Bible inconsistent no and that I in that analogy of fruits and harvest there were two harvest in the Jewish year there was a spring harvest and there was a fall harvest and there were firstfruits in both harvest there was a harvest from the early rain is a representation of Jesus and those that work taken to heaven with him and is there a trans is there a firstfruits connected to the latter reign the much greater force for the much larger harvest the hundred for four thousand wasn't mean first fruit that means first right was the circle put in an revelation fourteen when the harvest to is right the Reverend Al 's and are the first right the first in whom the ministry of God has been finished for brought to completion verse five says and in their mouth was found no guile for they are without fault before the throne of God I think in this class have already had you read the article called perfection the last generation are a señorita some point in the semester are not a chemist sign in now that it's in your handout it's in the file perfection the last generation they'll help you understand this verse in their mouth is found no guile for their without fault before the throne of God turn in your Bibles to Zephaniah chapter three let's look at verse thirteen I did Zephaniah chapter three and looking at verse thirteen this is the remnant of Israel shall not do iniquity nor speak lies neither shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth for they shall feed and lie down and none shall make them afraid you might gather from the last part of the verse this is her friend the new earth they both feed and lie down and none shall make them afraid arresting hi that metaphor isn't it who've even lied and lies down if she knows these are those who follow the Lamb whithersoever he go the same idea we just on Revelation fourteen single daughter of Zion shout now we read about the daughter of Zion Isaiah will what God called the daughter of Zion Virgin things O daughter of Zion Chicago Israel be glad and rejoice with all the heart O daughter of Jerusalem the Lord hath taken away that judgments yet cast out nine enemy the king of Israel even the Lord is in the midst of the thou shall not see evil anymore you'd like to study the rest of that prophecy is an incredibly positive one from X Revelation chapter fourteen Revelation chapter fourteen we just finished the section comes prior to the three Angels messages we talked about the person 's message let's move to the second Angels message revelation fourteen looking at verse eight and there followed another angel saying Babylon is fallen is fallen that great city because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication there are so many hence we find in this passage there to guide us elsewhere first of all babble and is fallen is fallen that is twice what is indicate indicates that there have been two falls of notes and prophecy one predicted by the apostle Paul from the leaders of the early Christian church that led to the papacy but there's been another fall and that is the fall of Protestantism they refused to accept the message of preparing for Christ's second coming the message of the law of God offshoot movements have arisen in the Adventist church periodically and they've taken statements and ricotta verses speak about this message being given again and with greater power in the fourth Angels message and I have reason to like this for any type of April with a fine all my sad that this is an announcement of a recent fall recent meaning that that the fall Protestantism as opposed to the papacy celebrities like this that if the message must be given again it must mean that there has been a third fall may be the papacy is followed processes must follow in Adventism is falling but when the messages given in relation eighteen does it say Babylon is fallen is fallen is fallen no again it's babbling is fallen is fallen is a reference to the same two false just a more thorough fall of Babylon with a greater power a presentation we talk about Babel and what are we talking about you know us here that Davlin is a great city to notice that is the same in relation seventeen but we found a great city mentioned earlier revelation one tenth of the city fell in Revelation eleven which tend to the city was that it was France is the city was a reference to the holy Roman empire and here we have this holy Roman Empire have a religion you know has two religions today one religion is papal with the other one apostate Protestantism in Germany the Netherlands and England here is Babylon the great city that is fallen is fallen and does she have political authority we find that out from this passage she makes all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication the fornication of nations in the Bible now the fornication of men but the fornication of nations is consistent leave the same as the union of God 's religious bodies with churches to me with nations it is a dependence in the book of Ezekiel and in the book of Jeremiah and the book of Isaiah it is the dependence of a church on the civil powers for authority or support what we learn from the second Angels message we learn that there is a foreseen of man by political power to follow the dictates of a church organization we learned that constitutes the follow-up album because was a babbling is fallen is fallen rerouted to you that great city because she made all nations drink of the one in Iraq if we asked the question why is babbling fallen what made her Babylon falling is enforcing of religious laws by civil authority and can you see that the second Angels message hasn't reached its complete fulfillment you because she made how many nations all nations drink of the line the wrath of her fornication that's exactly right and hasn't reached its full fulfillment that is yet future experience in us for the fourth angel comes when does reach its fulfillment to give the message again with power this wine I guess there might be other times it be useful to get to it that this wine is a worthwhile thing to study what is the word babbling mean confusion babble and means confusion who where is wine using as a metaphor elsewhere in the Bible content Isaiah turn in your Bibles to Isaiah chapter twenty eight Isaiah chapter twenty eight you are looking at verse seven when he disheartened verse five is set prop two were related to relish and fourteen at eight twenty eight verse five in that day shall the Lord of hosts before crown of glory and for a diadem of beauty unto the residue which is I work for the remnant of his people and for a spirit of judgment to him the citizen judgment and for strength to them that turned the battle to the gate but they also have aired through wine and through strong drink our out of the way the priest and the prophet have aired through strong drink work with my priest today and what church is where we find profits in what set of churches we find both the priests and the profit have aired through strong drink there swallowed up of line they are out of the way through strong drink they air was a say in vision they stumble in judgment for all tables are full of vomit and filthiness so that there is no place clean whom shall he teach knowledge and who shall be made to understand doctrine I guess to communicate to you the connection between these passages is that wine is a metaphor represents what confuses men's doctrines infuses their judgment confuses their vision in this passage is what as a metaphor represents now which confuses men's doctrine confuses their judgment infuses the revision revision refers to their source of inspired authority look at chapter twenty nine Isaiah twenty nine Amber looking at verse nine stay yourselves and wonder Friday outing cry they are drunken but not with wine they stagger but not with strong drink for the Lord hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep and have close your eyes the profits and your rulers the seers hath he covered and the vision of all is to come into you as the words of a book that is sealed which men deliver to one that is learned saying read this I pray the and he saith I cannot forget his field what is one hundred percent as a metaphor it represents the deception where men are not able to understand the revelations that God has given where they find the rip open revelation of the book for example as a book that is sealed that they cannot comprehend as babbling made nations drunk through her wine she has made all nations drunk through her wine conduct Revelation chapter fourteen Revelation chapter fourteen and were still in verse eight relation fourteen first phase the last phrase of says their wrath of her fornication you should know something about the issue of wrath in connection to babble and in Jesus did they both have wrath in the book Revelation they do and you might remember that Jesus appears later in revelation and a garment that is stained with blood and is out of the nest sometimes we have thought that that garment was stained with his own blood but that's not the picture you get the book of Isaiah turn in your Bibles to Isaiah chapter I believe that sixty two sixty three Isaiah chapter sixty three were looking at verse one who is best that comes from Edom was even so Abraham was the father of the faithful but not all of Abraham 's children were faithful Isaac was the father of the faithful but not all of Isaac 's children were faithful he had two children over there this names the two sons Isaac Jacob and Esau the descendents of Esau are called in the Bible id. here are two different bodies of men who represents people who are descended Abraham who could have had the birthright he saw could've had an who ended up within Jacob whose name was changed to Israel and China understand this mean id. who is desperate from Edom not if we find out this is Jesus it would be in question for us why is he coming from Needham would make sense to us if he was coming from Israel if it was coming from heaven where she coming from at the better question what was he doing there with dyed garments from those rough this that is glorious in his apparel traveling in the greatness of his strength I did speak in righteousness might you to save wherefore art thou read in thine apparel and I garments like him that shredded in the wine vat I have tried in the winepress alone and of the people there was none with me for I will tread them in mine was a say anger and trampled them in my theory and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments and I was staying up all of my arraignments for the day of vengeance is in Meinhardt and the year of my reteamed is calm what has he been doing in the land of Edom he has been trading out the winepress of the round of God for Macrovision fourteen Revelation chapter fourteen of them are looking at verse nineteen for a moment Revelation chapter fourteen in looking at verse nineteen the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth and gathered the vine of the earth and cast it into the great wine press of the wrath of God and the winepress was trodden without the city and the blood came out of the winepress even unto the horse 's bridle by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs that is two hundred miles north of something this morning my computer I didn't know what to expect but here's what I did maybe you can type that are right on your notes you can try future gap I'd read a comment further said that Miles could either be linear or square accept these to be square because if it's linear than you know how long that the blood is an you know how deep it is that you don't know how wide it is so you have no way to arrive at a volumes and access to them saying but if it square in your rival volume but you can could you know the square area and you know the height so I expect two hundred square miles and I did the conversions to turn it into square meters when you do you multiply that by one six way or to make in the square kilometers then you multiply that by a million to make it into that square meters I took it being of one nature deep color and saying the horse 's bridle and then I took those cubic meters entrance transfer those into leaders there are eight thousand liters in a cubic meter to multiply it by a thousand then I divided it by six because there are six levers implied in the human body your number you come up with five nine billion just about the population of the world fascinating listen I didn't fiddle with those numbers to make them outright I just typed in the data summary of what we just shared babbling that is fallen and is going to receive the wrath of God protocol people out you are dismissed
