LIBATIONS TO GOD IN BIBLE

slide_29.jpgGod set king Jesus upon His Holy hill of Zion to declare the decree, the LORD hath said to me,  You are My Son; this day have I begotten thee in Psalm 2:6-7. I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels in Psalm 22:14. I divide him a portion with the great so He divides the spoil with the strong; because he has poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for transgressors in Isaiah 53:12. In Genesis 35:14 as God changed Jacob’s name to Israel he gave a drink offering on an altar to God. Libations or drink-offerings are poured out liquid oil water or wine to God as part of sacrifice and worship. In Bible History, was used by Israelites in the worship of the LORD Jehovah as HE commanded. Burnt and grain offerings are part of God-ordained sacrifices, in the mornings and evenings in sacrifices in Exodus 29:40. A specified exact measure of wine was poured on the altar fire with the lamb sacrifices in Numbers 15:4-5. Other ram sacrifices in Numbers 15:6 or bulls The offerings of animals, grain, oil and wine are aroma to the LORD. The food water and wine offerings to God as stated in the Bible are important requirements of worship. Libations formed part of ancient Judaic worship of God in the Bible. 15614691557783673931164222652223.jpgJacob’s altar at Bethel is place God spoke to him from pillar of stones and poured out a drink offering and oil on the altar. In 2 Samuel 23:16, David poured a drink offering to Jehovah a sacrificial libation. David gave holy consecrated drink to God brought in at the risk of the lives of brave men. King David offered water libation to God poured on the ground. People of Israel on entering land gave God a drink offering of wine. People also drink rest of wine and drinks in the Temple during animal or grain offering, extra portions are kept for priests and worshippers. A drink offering is poured on the altar of burnt offering but priests forbidden to drink wine in tabernacle in Leviticus 10:9. Sacrificial food eaten in tabernacle in Leviticus 6:16. A drink offering was David’s thanksoffering to God for victory and entered rest for 40 years in the time of Solomon’s reign in Israel. Drink offering and grain offering was symbolic of works of the worshiper as fruits of land’s harvested grains, oil, and wine were thanks offerings to the LORD God. Libations were part of God-commanded service of God’s Levitical priesthood. Moses told people of Israel, God said, when you come into the land given to you and reap harvests, bring the sheaf of all first fruits of harvest to priests. He will wave sheaf before The LORD for acceptance after the Sabbath. 15614690516153209119098926182371.jpgThe day he waves the sheaf offer a male lamb a year old without blemish burnt offering to The LORD. Cereal offering two tenths of ephah of fine flour mixed with oil by fire to The LORD as pleasing aroma drink offering of wine, fourth of a hin says Leviticus 23:9-13. The LORD said to Moses, “tell people of Israel, offer to The LORD from herd or flock offering by fire or a burnt offering or a sacrifice, to fulfil vow or freewill offering at your appointed feasts pleasing aroma to The LORD. Offer to God a cereal offering of a tenth of ephah fine flour, mixed with a fourth of a hin of oil and wine for drink offering, a fourth of a hin prepared with burnt offering sacrifice with each lamb, according to Numbers 15:1-5. Libations in the Bible is described in Exodus 25:29

plates, dishes, jars, bowls poured made from pure gold. Again in Exodus 37:16 is utensils of plates, dishes, bowls, and jars for libations poured made of pure gold. In Leviticus 23:18, bread, seven perfect lambs a year old, a bullock from herd, two rams burnt-offering to Jehovah to present with libations and fire-offering as sweet fragrance to Jehovah. Leviticus 23:37 on appointed seasons by Jehovah, to proclaim holy convocations, to bring fire-offering to Jehovah, burnt-offering,  present sacrifice and libation. Numbers 6:15 says basket of unleavened flour is mixed with oil thin cakes anointed with oil and libations. IMG-20190625-WA0005.jpgNumbers 28:14 talks of libations of half of hin with bullock, and a third of the hin to a ram, and a fourth of hin to lamb wine, burnt-offering every month of the year. Numbers 28:3 describes continual burnt offering presented and libations. In Numbers 29:6 burnt-offering of the month presented, libations ordinances, sweet fragrance fire-offering to Jehovah as commanded. Numbers 29:11,19, goat sin offering atonement plus libations. In Numbers 29:18,21,24,27,29,30,31,37,39,  present and libations for bullocks, rams, sheep according to God ordinance. And
in Deuteronomy 32:32-39 God mocks all gods of rock in which they took refuge to eat fat of their sacrifices and drank wine drink offering to rise up and help you let them be your protection. So God says I AM HE and there is no God beside Me; I kill and I make alive; I wound and heal; and there is none that can deliver out of My hand.” God repeats warnings to gods that ate fat of the sacrifices and drank wine of their libations to rise up to help you as refuge 2 Kings 16:13 & 15. Their burnt and grain offerings, poured  libations and dashed blood fellowship offerings on altar to idols and gods must save them. Like God contest by Elijah on mount Carmel Jehovah taunts the pagan gods to deliver its followers to prove His Power as Real Sovereign Living God. So pagan’s drink offering in worship serve creature not Creator in Romans 1:25. 15613849653354873996987397020999.jpgTheir burnt and grain offerings, poured  Libations metaphor is used to describe Suffering Servant Jesus Who “Poured out His Life in death in Isaiah 53:12. In New Testament libation symbolic to a Christian’s reflection. A Drink Offering Sacrifice To the LORD God Jehovah by Jesus Christ’s Love. Greater Love has no man than this to give  His Life as a Ransome for many. Ultimately, LORD God’s Libation in the New Covenant is Christ Jesus offered His own Blood on Cross to save all mankind. Jesus said in Luke 22:20 He gave New Covenant Cup of wine poured for you by Blood. Jesus’ sacrifice fulfills need of a drink offering. His Blood poured out when the soldier pierced His side with the spear in John 19:34. God in Christ gave His Body for our Peace Offering drink Wine Libation Sacrifice. Jesus Christ refers to pagan libation and said some present at the time told Him Galilean’s blood used by Pilate mixed with pagan sacrifices. He answered them, Do you think those Galileans are worse sinners because of what they suffered? No, unless you repent  you likewise will perish. Those eighteen on whom tower in Siloam fell and killed were not worse offenders than others dwelling in Jerusalem. I tell you, unless you repent you will all likewise perish He said in Luke 13:1-5. The Cup of God’s Wrath Libation is compared to Christian communion in Revelation 14:10 poured unmixed cup of God’s anger. 20190624_152335.jpgLibation is poured from bowls of Wrath in Revelations 16 plagues. As Thyatirans and Pergamians used the libation wine ritual for idol gods not to Jehovah God. So people copied idolatrous practices of heathen religions in Canaan to invoke gods and ancestral spirits for good or an evil deed by community or individuals. The pagan practice of pouring wine as a sacrifice to the gods took root in ancient Greece. When they wanted to seek their god in a special way, they pour out some wine as sacrifice to help pave way for prayer.  Over the years is the custom to pour from cup they drank as sacrifice to their gods and dead relatives. So some, Philippians out of a pagan Greco-Roman culture, mixed this type of sacrifice with an Old Testament drink offering. Taking measure of wine, gins or water mixed with flour poured out as a sacrifice to please their gods. The prayer system of pouring Libation to God Only on Altar is contaminated by a Canaanite idolatrous way of praying. Apocalyptic wrath of Jesus and God’s Wrath will judge those who serve creatures, not God Almighty Creator. The Living Water Jesus poured His Blood mixed with water from His Side to redeem us from curse of law to bring us boldly into Presence  of God.  

15613849436388913111399884570312.jpgThe patent owner of all resources on the earth and the firmaments deserves the best quality of first fruit harvest, water or wine for thanksgiving. The focus is to give thanks to God for sustaining life on earth and for replenished resources. So libation water celebrations take place in the years in various seasons of harvests. Libation is specifically for Living God to thank Him so what role does idol play in nurturing mankind? And Paul said in Philippians 2:17 his life is poured like a drink offering.  He said, that “I am being poured out like a drink offering so he compared himself a cup of wine poured out on altar of sacrifice. Some pour on ground to mother earth and ancestors. He felt poured out as their sacrifice for the Lord’s work metaphor used twice in imagery of drink offering to describe service. In Philippians 2:17, challenged church in Philippi to live worthy of testimony in dedication to God. In 2 Timothy 4:6 of his ministry compared his life to wine poured out of vessel on the altar. Paul understood struggles of toils of apostolic ministry like libation is sacrificial service of Churches offered drinks, food, God, wine New Covenant. Paul shares joy of libation-labour with others to pour out their lives too in service to God in Phillipians 2:17-18.               15613833503098766392615814667642.jpgAncient Romans and the other cultures use libation symbolic in their worship meetings. The Kwanzaa ritual libation uses water poured to honour their dead included in communities of African American ancestry. The practice has historic universal appeal of sharing the drink wine, water, or malt etc. Jesus Sacrifice embraced libation imagery in New Testament texts like Luke’s cup in 22:20;Philippians 2:17. Revelation points to wrong religious practice of a libation  judgment John condemned the libation; wine ritual to idols and not to Jehovah by God’s enemies non allegiance to God. Jewish temples in Jerusalem were used by Greeks and Romans for ritual wine pouring in honour of pagan deities and emperors veneration as lord and gods.  Imperial focus on libation views by the Christians contradict an expected Godly identity in Christ alone. New Testament wine libation prayer to God Almighty is for eternal life redemption. Importance of wine as Blood in Christian Eucharist represents libation in the communities of Jesus’ followers. Red Wine poured in worship to God is through Jesus’ Blood Shed for the Christians. Libation to God demands exclusive loyalty to the Jealous God who will not share HIS GLORY with anyone. Believers are to direct worship to God in Christ alone in New Covenant. True God required the people to pour out liquids from bowls, cups and vessels at sacrificial Temple setting gatherings for libations to Him Alone like wine, honey, milk, oil and their water rituals.           1561383387552181348352340085116.jpgThe Bible and Septuagint has examples of libations offered as part of sacrifices in events: Exodus 29:40; Leviticus 23:13; Numbers 15:5–10; Numbers 29; 1 Kings 18:34. Greek and Roman offered wine to gods. And the New Testament  reference to libation in Luke 22:20 is libation New Covenant Blood of Jesus is poured out to save all. in ungodly ritual seen as wrong religious practices by God’s judgement. In Hebrew Bible in New Testament Cup of wine by John in Scripture supersedes worship offered to Roman deities. God’s Divine judgement against all those who worship false gods overall condoned by Roman Empire. Christian community is to choose to identify with Christ as the Citizens of heaven. Apocalypse Wrath of God is due to neglect to celebrate and honour God in Jesus Christ ALONE. The SOVEREIGN GOD PREFERS HIS NEW COVENANT IN CHRIST APPROPRIATE IN GOD’S DIVINE LOVE. Revelation 14 and 16 libation bowls says followers of the Lamb Jesus assured through Rapture so doom awaits Babylon and the beast. Loyalty to God in Eucharistic libation is an integral part of the Christian belief and Gidky lifestyle. Those who continue faithfully to God are not under wrath compared to those who worship beast. Children of God are purchased by Blood of Lamb Jesus offered for humanity to God. Babylon is fallen with all nations who drink wine of her sins.  Those who accept  Jesus are saved from God wrath.20190624_145339.jpgGod’s Sacrifice is BEST SACRIFICE for all who worship HIM not the beast/s image will drink the wine of God’s anger poured in cup of wrath. Revelations 14:14–20 says winepress of God’s wrath is like sickle harvest grape’s judgement. In Joel 3:13 harvest of grain symbolizes true peace not wrath of  God against the earth. Winepress blood horse height punishment is deliberate. Revelation 14 and 16 shows those not in God’s Favour liable will drink His anger, and violence blood flowing like wine. Seven libation bowl poured in the sanctuary of Temple worship. Seven angels from heaven sanctuary carry plagues. In Revelations 15:7, one of four living creatures gives the seven angels seven golden bowls full of anger of God to pour libations wrath of God. A voice calls from heaven instructing the angels to pour out their bowls, full of the wrath of God on the inhabitants of earth. Afflictions poured out are the boils, sores or turn waters to blood, burning people by sun, darkness, pain. The woman in purple, scarlet, with gold, jewels, pearls, in hand golden cup of abominations of fornication. On forehead is written mystery of Babylon the great, mother of harlots and earth’s abomination seeks to destroy Jesus.         15613858462575771971790556379631.jpgJohn saw a woman, drunk with blood of saints and the blood of martyrs of Jesus in Revelation 17:2–6, will be repaid with double the cup she mixed in Revelations 18:6. God’s Wrath judgement is against wrongdoers imaged in winepress and drunkenness. The mixed wine libations wine press fury Wrath of God Almighty is judgement suffering. Wine offerings in Roman worship made in Jerusalem temple libations was a part of daily life in the ancient world. Libation imagery from Scripture highlights Revelation’s attacks of wrong religious practice. Who is like the Jehovah God in Exodus 51:11; Psalm 113:4–6; Isaiah 44:6–7. Revelation warns of incorrect worship of the beast highlights sinful actions against God. So  Revelations condemn such a world wide worship of the beast Babylon to wreck havoc on those inhabitants of earth. The libations refer to worship so plagues of Revelation 16 subverts a real authentic  right worship in John’s community by Jesus worshippers. And so True worship reveres Lamb Jesus Christ, Son of God Almighty who sits on throne Revelation in 4:9–10; 22:3–4. Wine libation imagery iused in Revelations God’s judgement to unleash suffering on those who worship incorrectly and by sinful excess in life.  Revelation relies on the biblical imagery familiar to people by apocalyptic vision. 20190624_151517.jpgExodus 25:29 describes sacrificial items for worship of God like plates, dishes for incense, vessels to pour drink-offering of pure gold to offer liquids to God. The offering of libations instructions in biblical texts show exact liquid offering, normal ordinary sacrificial worship of Israel. God gives the precise instruction for libation in the Temple of Jerusalem in Graeco-Roman period. Worship at Jerusalem in temple during period leads up to temple’s destruction in 70 CE. In Asia Minor the new temple synagogues letters show that libation was offered at banquets or public in diaspora journey of Jews to Jerusalem. Crowds during the Passover and Pentecost from countless continents, cities over lands, seas, from east, west, north, south annual feast of sacrifices and libations to God on altar. Libation records in the Dead Sea Scrolls. Temple worship says to rejoice this day and pour out strong drink offering, new wine on altar of the LORD year by year. Book of Jubilees says Noah sprinkled wine libation on sacrificial fire offering of the wine and water Sukkot festival by Jews in Second Temple era libation with their pagan wine cult worships. Divine condemnation of a wrong idol religious practice non-Israel by God of the Jews is revealed by prophets to warn them.1561458740137801725153158042397.jpg In Hebrew Bible God is against Babylon oppressors using sacrifice in libations in Jeremiah 19:13; 32:29; 44:17–19. Hebrew Bible shows their libations and a drink offerings to gods offend Jehovah God so warned it is wrong. Jeremiah condemns their use of libation offerings to queen of heaven Babylon goddess opposition to the God of Israel in Chapter 44 and 32 Baal or unnamed god worship libations. Jeremiah 51:7 like Revelation 14:8 is on Babylon as a golden cup in the LORD’s hand making all the earth and nations drank by her wine went mad. Libation imagery’s drunkenness and immorality unlike sources in Deuteronomy, Esther on libation point to the wrong religious oppression. Deuteronomy 32:37-38 asks why their gods of libations poured are not coming to save Israelites from God’s wrath. Esther in her prayer to God said she did “not honour the king’s feast or drunk the wine of libations” in Esther 14.17. The biblical use of libations is to God on the altar but Ezekiel consistently points out the wrong behaviour of those who have deviated from the will of God. The Bible on God’s wrath in Ezekiel uses pouring out eleven times in Ezekiel 7:8; 8:8; 9:8; 14:19; 20:8; 20:13; 20:21; 20:33; 20 : 34; 22:22; 22:31; 36:18. The wrath of God is poured out against all the people who angered God by worshipping other gods disobedient to God’s rules. Ezekiel says the wrath poured is against foreign peoples and Israel. God’s wrath is meted because  God’s people intermingle their worship with ungodly ideas from other nations. Ezekiel 38 is close to Revelation wrath described fire in Ezekiel 22:22-31. 15614639615948560712912485402558.jpgGod’s wrath in Revelations 15:5–8 texts is in this context of libations criticized. Christian group gatherings and group meetings is distinct from idol libations by Eucharist body and Blood of Christ so raising of a cup in Jesus’ honour took place as a form of libation symbolised a union with Christ communal experience but the pagan libations are rejected. So in 1 Corinthians 8; 10:14–3 Jesus’ bodily sacrifice libation of blood in the context of the Last Supper, emphasizes common cup poured out by a Covenant in Jesus’ blood in Luke 22:20. Paul’s service to Christ is pouring out like libations in Philippians 2:17. The Christians reflect on Jesus’ community eternal life Gospel message saving them from God’s wrath on followers of Babylon made to “drink the wine of God’s wrath, poured in cup of his anger” in Revelation 14:10. The heavenly meal banquet on the earth is replicated in Divine wine and bread in remembrance by communities. Some do not uses wine rather water or juice. The Creator God’s water, oil, milk and honey sacrament origins from the Creator God used in worship of the pagan gods.” The bread and water Eucharistic connects to communities with sacred food. After the prayers holy bread, wine, juice taken by Christians to prevent wine-drunkards in Church. Revelations show restriction of wine use among Jesus-following groups against pagan associations with Jewish or Christian belief. Thyatira, Pergamum, and Thyatira follow teachings against John’s eating food from idol sacrifices. 1561463778110651738356615806246.jpgNicolaitans hold on teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to put the stumbling block before the sons of Israel. They eat foods sacrificed to idols and a practice of immorality. Balaam in Numbers 24; 25:1–6 and 31:16 eating of food offered to other gods. Thyatira, members who follow Jezebel John claims teaches and beguiles God’s servants in immorality and eat food sacrificed to idols. Jezebel  idol gods polluted true worship of God in 1 Kings 16:31; 18:4–19; 19:1, 2; 21:5–25; 2 Kings 9 evil religious observance Revelation 2–3 speaks of eating foods sacrificed to idols and drink libations of pagan worship. The wrath of God is for rebellious sacrifice within communities  eating non-Christian offerings to idols and still partaking at the LORD’S table. Elijah dealt with double-minded people hopping between God and idol’s contest at Mount Carmel. Libation debates now focuses on those born again Christians professing faith in God but indulging in  idol libation eating drinking rituals. The LORD says choose today whom you will serve for the wrath of God is against the ones serving two masters God and gods. Salvation in Jesus means He loves you.Jacob in Genesis 28:10-22 meets God in dream of heavenly ladder and angels turned stone pillow to pillar altar Bethel House of God support and resting place built in Christ Jesus the living stone for God’s building us as the pillars in God’s testimony of expressing  the Gospel.        15614646327436072408697771101214.jpgJacob said, This is the House of God His Church in Ephesians 2:22 manifestation of God in the flesh in man in 1 Timothy 3:15. God’s House is the New Jerusalem Holy City dwelt in by God in Revelation 4:2-321:11. Jacob’s oil libation offering poured on the altar is like anointing oil filled by Holy Spirit from Father God in the Son Jesus in the Spirit to reach us. The Triune God flows to reach anoint and fill us in the house of God. The Holy Spirit anoints us so we become living stones in God’s house for God’s building 1 Peter 2:5, pillars in the Temple of God’s Church in Revelation 3: 12. The House of God’s Home is dwelling place says 1 John 2:20, 27 in us. Jacob returns to Bethel in Genesis 35:1-8 God said to Jacob to rise up go to Bethel and dwell there to make the altar to God who appeared there to you as you fled from Esau your brother. Jacob told all his household and all with him, put away strange gods among you, be clean, and change your garments. Let us arise, and go up to Bethel make an altar to God for answering me in the day of my distress, was with me on the way as I went. And they gave to Jacob all the strange gods in their hands and all their earrings in their ears and Jacob hid them under the oak by Shechem. Jacob pours oil to God.  20190625_140804.jpg15614652861982000141599335740480.jpg

They journeyed and the terror of God on the cities round about them did not pursue the sons of Jacob. Jacob came to Luz in the land of Canaan called Bethel, him and all the people with him. And he built there an altar and called the place Elbethel because there God appeared to him, when he fled from the face of his brother. Deborah Rebekah’s nurse died, and was buried beneath Bethel an oak and the place is named Allonbachuth. So Jacob is Named Israel in Genesis 35:9 -15 after God appeared to Jacob again, when he came out of Padanaram, and blessed him. And God said to him, Your name is Jacob: your name shall not be any more Jacob, but Israel shall be your name: and called his name Israel. God said to him, I AM God Almighty so be fruitful and multiply. Nations will come out of you and kings shall come out of your loins. The land I gave to Abraham and Isaac, to you I give it and your seed after you will I give the land. God went up from him in the place He talked with him. Jacob set up a pillar in the place he talked with God to build altar of stones and poured a drink offering on it and poured oil on it. Jacob called place God spoke with him Bethel in Israel so many thousands of years ago before exile. God says do not lean on own understanding to put ‘culture’ above God’s Commands and personal salvation in Jesus Christ.
 

GOD HAS GIVEN US CLOUDS

15611919098861218923809938205932.jpgGod speaks through the clouds to reveal Himself to many people in the world to encourage believers and warn mockers. Jesus Christ will return in the clouds at any time so believers have a keen sense of expectancy. Since our citizenship is in heaven we eagerly await for Jesus our Saviour who will rapture us into heaven alive. Life continues as we, “wait for the Lord our souls wait in His Word in hope. Our soul waits for the Lord more than those who watch for the morning, more than those who watch for the morning says Psalm 130:5–6.             15611919908068612504243743912679.jpgAll events happening in the world point towards the stage being set to get ready for the return of Jesus in the clouds. The Gospel message vision clearly written in Bible will be fulfilled according to Word of God’s plans and purposes. God Our Father does not want anyone to perish. So consistently sends His Words to give hope to endure to the end during the most challenging times. Mankind has not been able to rule themselves as God intended and can never do so. So many centuries tolerating selfrule excluding God, His decision is made to return power in Christ Jesus once and for all. IMG-20190623-WA0002.jpgGod’s appointed time to act is Classified information exclusively known only by God. The world is told it will happen but the exact day or time is a Top Secret for God to decide. God speaks using clouds to appear in various forms to remind us of His place in our lives. Images, faces of God, Jesus, angels, figures, shapes and physical walks of Jesus is seen in clouds to prepare people for Jesus return in the clouds. People know and understand a cloud is symbolic of the latter rain of the abundance of open heaven blessings. 15611105660828594211211388693845.jpgPhysical rains sustains and replenishes earth so latter rains Holy Spirit poured at Pentecost empowers rapidly spreads Gospel globally. God calls waters from  sea to rise and fall and rain as showers of blessings to nurture crops, plants and provide for all. God quenches thirst, and provides abundantly daily with more than enough for all’s sustenance. Greed has destroyed and deprived abundance to all as God freely supplied on a thousand hills and mountains in all places. The sad reality today is extremes Jesus said that the rich gets richer as the poor are made poorer by their actions.    14310270307_35ebbe9fb2_b.jpgThe world is given great promises when the time comes to be elected but none is fulfilled so people are worse off but one they elected becomes tyrant insulting all the citizens on earth. Any families are in pain hurt by people supposed to lead by humility. Millions died needlessly by the selfish policies wasting resources on the few while majority are worse off. Jesus warned world 3000 years ago exactly as is happening now. Change is coming as God, after 6000 years has seen enough  so will take power back from all to give to Jesus. God uses many means to shake the world to WAKE UP to reality of these changes ongoing daily globally. Jesus Loves you so much he died for you.         15611066063383889204882562706790.jpgMankind knows how to give good gifts to own children in the same way gives latter rain Holy Spirit to those ready to receive Him in their lives. Jesus fulfilled His promised at Pentecost so today call on the Holy Spirit to help teach and to reveal God to you personally in a new way. Choose to receive to be refreshed in your Spirit to enter deeply in Sacred presence of God. God’s rain cloud is free to you to empower you to increase gift of faith. God puts rain clouds in places to water the ground to enrich the soil to produce good harvest to nourish people. God puts gift cloud in people to rain His blessings through them to enrich others. 15611066540501818345272235953195.jpgThe blessings of the LORD makes rich so without sorrow so it is possible to smile, encourage, support, bless, help and give hope to others. God clouds give free rain but others do not enjoy it so it’s spiritual death not walking under the God clouds which means drought in the inner man. The dead do not praise God unless their soul goes back to God’s Presence. The blessings of the LORD makes rich to enrich others as conduits of Gods and it is possible to smile, encourage, support, bless, help to give hope to others. Jesus Loves so gives you gift of eternal life.15611060473155045076870072657169.jpgHowever the walking dead need revival before it is too late. God speaks through the clouds for encouragement. So all His Children are to be in the Spirit and be prayerful at all times in private without showing off to others. A time is coming when Jesus returns in the clouds for the rapture so be ready to make informed choice among His Chosen. So physical death is not the end of life as all face judgement of God to account for life on earth. Whether one believes in God or not His clouds provide rain for food for the un/just by His Compassion, Grace and Mercy. Rain clouds bless but a cloud without rain causes drought so God says prayer for latter rain to thrive in Christ. Jesus Loves you so much and He cares for you.

GOD SPEAKS TO ALL PEOPLE

Isaiah 6:1 – In the year king Uzziah died I saw the LORD sitting on a throne, high and lifted up and His train fills temple. In Ezekiel 1:1 In the thirtieth year, on fifth day of the fourth month, I was by river Chebar among exiles, the heavens opened and saw visions of God. Ezekiel 1:26-28 – Above firmament over their heads is a throne of sapphire stone. On the throne is the appearance of a MAN SITTING on it. 1 Samuel 16:7 The LORD said to Samuel look not on appearance or height of his stature because the LORD sees not as man sees. Man looks at outward appearance but the LORD looks in the heart. Daniel 10:9 I heard the Voice of His words and was in deep sleep on my face on the ground. Isaiah 45:8, says “Drip down, O heavens, from above, let clouds pour in righteousness and Let the earth open up and salvation bear fruit, And righteousness spring up with it. I, the LORD created it. Genesis 7:11 In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life in the second month of seventeenth day of the month, on the same day the fountains of the great deep burst open and floodgates of the sky were opened.

John 1:51 He said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, you will see heavens opened and the angels of God ascending and descending with the Son of Man.” Jesus will come first in Rapture and later in a Second Coming permanently to dwell on earth. The cataclysmic events in the world points toward all these unfolding prophecies happening today concerning all humans. Whether one believes in God or not the unfolding warnings from God depends on choice made to be part of God’s Kingdom. Changes taking place are set in motion by God uses various forms of communication to people. The methods of God’s approaches used are diverse but is a meaningful message to pay careful attention to. God’s blue print manual is His Words to us in the Bible so important to seek God now while He is found. God does not want anyone to perish so persuades all in love to listen and make the right choices. Those who believe sponsor His Kingdom to thrive and to manifest in Jesus Name. Signs of the times point to birth pangs of events so the impact reflects on choices each person makes in life. And Malachi 3:10 “Bring the whole tithe into storehouse, so there may be food in My House, and test Me,” says the LORD of hosts, “if I will not open windows of heaven to pour blessings overflow. God is still in the business of speaking to His people and gives eternal life in paradise in the resurrection. Be sure to accept Jesus as Lord and follow His Voice daily to build your faith and to increase confidence in God in Jesus Name. 

 

GOD WHISTLES TO NATIONS

1560112530264-1174773187.jpgGod whistles to the nations to bless and restore spiritual deliverance on earth to redress injustice. The Holy Spirit in faith by prayer and prophets shows changes in people from idols to worship Father GOD. The LORD’s remnant by HIS Grace and Mercy with a renewed courage and strength will overcome in victory. With the help of The LORD gain strength and success in Christ to raise up persons to unite, support, and defend HIS people. The Promises of God to the nations and HIS Church in the GOSPEL is God’s Call for all souls to come to Jesus Christ to be redeemed by His Blood. God gathers by HIS whistles to deliver once again out of Egypt to overcome spiritual enemies so hearts will rejoice. God strengthens us in duties of Christian life to be active in Work of God in the Name of Lord Jesus.1560112912744-1174773187.jpgZechariah 10:1-12 call us to pray to God Jehovah boldly, directly with confidence without a need to seek idol worship that brings judgment on princes and people. Blessings promised in answer to prayer: (1) rulers of themselves; (2) conquest of enemies (3) restoration that establishes Israel own land in lasting peace and joy.
Jehovah alone gives this says Jeremiah 10:13, 14:22. The latter rain in due time in Job 29:23 and Joel 2:23 includes these blessings of physical and spiritual ones. God sanctified the nations at Pentecost in Christ with the Jewish Church. These firstfruit harvests of nations converted gathered in Christ to God. The spirit of God acted on Peter’s prayer in Church and poured out blessing on all nations. The latter rain brings in full harvest to the whole world that begun that day in Jerusalem in Israel. The Gospel thrives and reaches four corners of the whole earth as Jesus told His disciples. Despite Gospel Truth many consult idols or the household gods for comfort in relics. So Zechariah its their idolatry stopping the Grace of God giving them all blessings. God is urging people in Zechariah 10:1 to ask God’s Mercy to repent so Jehovah will deliver them by HIS true prophets. The world is in a mess by pretending to see and giving promises of comfort but consulter’s responses come to nothing says Job 13:4;16:2;21:34. They went their way so led them taken away captive and punished. Without Jehovah are flocks without Shepherd wandering prey at risk. False prophets they trust are not shepherds says Ezekiel 34:5. Scattered, don’t know not Messiah their Shepherd or believe in His disciples forsake Jesus. Abandons God in search of own gods or idols says Matthew 26:56 and Zechariah 13:7.1560114578949-2106252720.jpgGod whistles against shepherds rulers of Israel who condoned such idolatry so punished. They were headstrong and offensive in lust says Isaiah 14:9, Ezekiel 34:17, Daniel 8:5, Matthew 25:33. Mercy of God extends to them says Luke 1:68. Under Commander-in-Chief, Jehovah’s battle horse in Solomon 1:9 God makes His people courageous tended with HIS GREATEST care. Jehovah calls them”HIS flock” to save HIS subservient rulers. So the Cornerstone Messiah says Isaiah 28:16 will govern in 1Samuel 14:38 and Isaiah 19:13. The Government is upon Messiah’s Shoulders to Govern and to deliver from oppressors to support and bind together Church, Jew and Gentiles. In Judges 4:21, Isaiah 22:23 the Messiah is battle-bow in Psalms 45:4 Psalms 45:5, Revelations 6:2 defeats God’s enemies. Oppressors in Isaiah 60:17 got tributes from nations but give tributes to Israel.  Jehovah’s war horse in Zechariah 10:3, Psalms 20:7 treads Foot on foes with HIS Calvary says Ezekiel 38:4, Daniel 11:40 in Syro-Grecian army I Maccabees 3:39.1560114629327-1958815206.jpgThere is a complete restoration globally when Israelites from all nations return. This deliverance prophecy under Jesus Messiah brings all again securely to dwell in own land says Jeremiah 32:37. Like  mighty man in battle defeats the foe says Zechariah 10:3 Zechariah 10:5. The nations rejoice at their victory over the foe so their children will see God’s promises fulfilled and their joy shall be complete. Rejoice in the LORD Giver of GLORIOUS VICTORY for HIS scattered people in Zechariah 10:10, Isaiah 5:26 , Ezekiel 36:11. The future more perfect fulfilment of this prophecy includes the redeemed in My Covenant spiritually and increase cosmopolitan character of residents. Christ’s coming prepared way for apostles to preach in various Jewish synagogues. The New Testament Gospel preached opened the way for entrance to Gentiles remember in countries in Deuteronomy 30:1, 2 Chronicles 6:37. So Jews scattered in Luke 15:17Luke 15:18 , Psalms 22:27 to All the ends of the world remember and turn to the LORD become part of Israel fear and GLORIFY God in Psalms 102:13-15. Political and spiritual life in Egypt and Assyria were Israel’s oppressors. Israelites fled to “Egypt” on the invasion of Tiglath-pileser Isaiah 11:11 represent their future restoration.1560113019610-1174773187.jpgGilead and Lebanon are the Holy Land boundaries not found no room enough for all numbers in Isaiah 49:20, 54:3. So sea of afflictions cease to be obstacles to Israel’s return. Isaiah 11:15-16. Psalms 114:3 says Jehovah smote the Red Sea to make passage for HIS people in Exodus 14:16;:21 makes a way through obstacle opposing Israel’s restoration. The Nile river in Amos 8:8;9:5 the Red Sea and Euphrates answer to Assyria and Egypt. Sceptre of Egypt departs in Ezekiel 30 : 13 and God Strengthens them in Hosea 1:7 by Power of our Lord Jesus Messiah, the Son of God. Walk in His Name, live in His protection and Will says Genesis 5:22, Psalms 20:1&7Micah 4:5. In Isaiah says in Chapter 5 to the nations Christ is God’s beloved Son, and our Saviour. The LORD’s Church and Israel given the law and ordinances. The Temple of God’s PRESENCE is set up on HIS altar offering sacrifices. God expects gifts, fruits from enjoyed privileges of a peculiar people to reach God’s Spirit with love, humility, meekness, patience not of the world. So God looks for prayers and praising with patience for everlasting life. Idolatry is denounced by God as love of pleasures and sensual delights above God. Death brings judgments as God is GLORIFIED by HIS POWER of Divine Revelations.1560114465687-1174773187.jpgGod is not a referee because when HE blows the whistle the righteous people stand in HIS PRESENCE but all evil ones run when nobody pursues them. Isaiah 5:1-30 says Jehovah’s Vineyard is about Jesus Messiah prophecy covenant to the nations. Matthew 20:1, 21:33 says Jesus Christ is the Vine in God’s Vineyard of the Church. God does all that could be done for the salvation of sinners, with HIS justice and goodness. God of nature ensures HIS well-cared for Vineyard reflects OWNER but it is trodden down by wild beast enemies in Psalms 80:12-13Jehovah in Isaiah 5:7 , is the Owner in Matthew 21:43, Luke 17:22 gives Commands by heaven-sent teachings of prophets in Amos 8:11. Gospel says the pleasant plan of God’s delight is Jewish role model justice in Christ in Matthew 27:23-24. The Lord rewards redeemed revealed in Christ. But in Uzziah’s reign in Isaiah1:3; 2:17; Isaiah 3:14; 5:1,11-12, 15-16,25-26,Isaiah 7:18;9:12; 10:12; 22:14 invasion of Assyria. Psalms 80:12-13 on desolations for national intemperance drinking. Music drowns cries of children sacrificed to Moloch so God
regards not such feastings in Job 1: 5, Psalms 28:5 punishes guilty in Isaiah 5:19, Isaiah 10:12. The prophet sees the future reckless consequences. In Hosea 4:6Luke 19:44 such luxurious feasts at expense of poor people by honourable nobles face justice of God from heaven.

Heaven sent Jesus to redeem from hell based on choices in life. The hell grave in Hebrew sheol; Greek hades is unseen world of spirits of torment of those who perish in Numbers 16:30. The people  rejoice in Jerusalem by salvation in Christ. God is exalted because of HIS manifestation of justice by Son Jesus Holy righteous favour or desolate to become vast deserted lands. The Lamb Jesus Christ in John 21:15 saves the poor and persecuted. In Ezekiel 39:18 the rich and great in 1 Corinthians 1:26 – 27 face justice.  In  John 10:16 the Gentiles  Jesus Christ bring are partakers of the God’s privileges in Romans 11:17. The Christian Church will worship God in freedom, released from legal bondage in John 4:23, Galatians 5:1 from sin. The  sin provokes Divine judgment by guilt, for punishment due to wickedness. All those wise in their own eyes so think knows better prophet reject warnings in Isaiah 29:14 Isaiah 29:15. Self-indulgent intoxicated by power in Proverbs 9:2
decay by the outward manifestation of riches, prosperity, perish in Job 18:16, Malachi 4:1, 2 Kings 22:13 & 17. Refers to earthquake in days of Uzziah Amos 1:1, Zechariah 14:5. The earth trembled in presence of God ( Jeremiah 4:24 , Habakkuk 3:6, Isaiah 9:12, Isaiah 9:17 Isaiah 9:21, 10:4. Calamities of heavier judgment pending in Leviticus 26:14. As God’s whistles in Zechariah 10:8 calls nations to Israel like bees swamp them in Deuteronomy 1:44, Psalms 118:12. Fulfilment took place by siege Roman Titus battle distress clouds destruction.                1560117638251-1174773187.jpgGod gives sure sign promised expected Messiah in Isaiah 7:10-16. The ungodly men punished in distressing confusion, lost. They made God enemy not a friend so prophet teaches them to despise enemies of God faith to depend on God. Ahaz, in fear called two princes. but prophet God’s firebrands of earth, consume all before them. Ahaz defeated because evil counsel offence to God that scorns scorners did not succeed ruined  themselves. Isaiah urges people to rely on God by Faith as absolutely necessary. Those resolved they will not trust God  but tempt HIM the prophet reproves in Divine revelation for grievous unbelief that man shall not make promise of God void. The LORD HIMSELF gives a sign in the Messiah born preserves blessings in you in Glorious manner of Holy Spirit’s Virgin birth. Strong consolations in time of trouble is derived from Christ in our relationship, interest and expectations from Him. His sign follows destruction of the princes terrorising Judah enemy forces forsaken by their kings. So God’s  Divine Saviour is a reliable support to the hopes of believers, thankful for the Word made flesh dwelling among us. He is our source of confidence, trust to love God in Christ for believers in promises of God. But God’s enemies hear alarm of God’s wrath judgments. The LORD Will change of the face of pleasant lands and deal with sinful people who reject Jesus.1560118334429-1174773187.jpgAgriculture would cease drought follow without rain causes famines starvation.  Sorrows of every kind will come upon all who neglect God’s great salvation. All who remain fruitful by the Grace, the LORD Jehovah Jireh sustains but despite compassion enemy fruits grow no more forever. God patent owner of their lands and resources destroys it all by rejecting Jesus. FINAL PRESERVATION is COMING OF MESSIAH again to deal with enemies of God. Jesus reign is a historical fact in Though Syria, Pekah Israel confederates advanced against Jerusalem campaign and smote Ahaz with a great slaughter in 2 Chronicles 28:5 these kingdoms are no match against God. Egypt favoured to punish Israel by God’s plan kingdoms in Isaiah 7:18, 2Kings 17:4 Hoshea form league with Egypt. Rezin, Pekah, Ahaz’ caused invasion of Judah. Ahaz, inroad of his enemies: 2 Chronicles 28:1-26 and 2 Kings 15:37, Isaiah 16:5 defeat despite Isaiah’s warning did not rely on God. In Damascus slew Rezin in 2 Kings 15:29; 16:9 Israel made captive. Ahaz saved at sacrifice of Judah’s independence pays large tribute continued till overthrow of Sennacherib under Hezekiah in Isaiah 37:37, 2Kings 16:8; 2Kings 16:17; 2Kings 16:18, 2Chronicles 28:20. For David’s sake God’s Love in everlasting covenant in Matthew 1:23 is fully realized in the birth of “woman’s seed” in Genesis 3:15 to bruise serpent’s head and to deliver captives in Jeremiah 31: 22, Micah 5:3. Messianic New Testament fulfilled in Revelation 19:10. Virgin Mary births “Immanuel,” God with us in John 1:14, Revelation 21: 3, Son of God, Wonderful Counsellor in Isaiah 8:18, Mighty God. In Isaiah 7:15-16 Jesus Christ born literally manifested in Scripture. Jesus’ first food was honey  Judges 14:8, 1 Samuel 14:25, Matthew 3:4. Immanuel Jesus Christ fed as other infants in Luke 2:52,Isaiah 7:22. So Child knows good and evil as KING of Kings in prophecy. 1560104219535-1174773187.jpgJerusalem siege foiled in 2Kings 16:5 by encamped Ephraim ten tribes. Ahaz cut off of water supply from the enemy secured city. In Isaiah 22:9, 2 Chronicles 32:4 say remnant return in Isaiah 6:13 standing memorial to Ahaz and Israel’s calamity in Isaiah 7:17-25, Isaiah 8:6-8 not totally destroyed Isaiah 10:21-22. The aqueduct reservoir supplies city at foot of Zion as Fount Siloah , Nehemiah 3:15,;9:7 called Gihon, west of Jerusalem in 2Chronicles 32:30. The pools supplied Upper and Old Jerusalem Isaiah 22:11 in King’s in Nehemiah 2:14 and Lower in Isaiah 22:9. Upper pool seen from Jaffa gate highway leads to fullers’ field near water washing by aqueduct. The enemy seems greater in Isaiah 7:8 but to God is harmless usurper 2 Kings 15:25. Scheme divide a large portion territory between themselves to set up vassal king of their over the rest. Israel’s capital remains so not conquered by those possessing own dominions. Israel exiled is carried away Manasseh king of Judah as prophesied Ezra 4:2:3 :10, 2Kings 17:24, 2 Chronicles 33:11. God, Head of theocracy, destroys enemies of HIS people relying on HIM. A miracle assures us of God’s fulfilment of HIS promises in saving Jerusalem in Isaiah 37:30 Isaiah 38:7-8. Signs pledges future Mount of God to Jesus Christ in Romans 10:67-7 for keeping HIS laws in Deuteronomy 6:16. Matthew 4:7 says God’s sends HIS miraculous sign offered in Christ. Ahaz negotiated with Assyria in idolatry in 2 Kings 16:7, 2 Kings 16:2-3,:4:10. Men’s distrust God, trust in own devices but profess reverence for God. Ahaz wants Jehovah God’s Sign while seeking local god of Syria not powerful common heathen notion in Isaiah 10:10, 11:36:18-20 trust in God degenerate into distrust. Wants proof from God but sign Ahaz publicly rejects against God and is reproved. God’s Whistle to brings bees and flies from the Nile canal rivers in Isaiah 19:5-7, 23:3 plagues in Exodus 8:21. Numerous troublesome foes from Egypt in Deuteronomy 1:44, Psalms 118 : 12. Flies and bees in “desolate valleys used as God’s instrument of devastation of Israel beyond Euphrates that Abram crossed. Isaiah 7: 18 says Abundance in desolate land grows with cattle, sheep, goats, butter, milkcream food resources for  inhabitants left. Honey is abundant bees and so find wildflowers valuable vineyards of thousand vines. Vineyards cultivation is productive in barren land is a vast hunting ground, abounding in wild beasts Jeremiah 49:19 with plants in Isaiah 5:6.

Pentecost & Christianity

Pentecost in Christianity is observed on the seventh Sunday Easter Resurrection of Jesus. That day celebrates blessing of Holy Spirit upon Apostles and followers of Jesus Christ in Acts 2:1-31. On the day of Pentecost the Holy Spirit descended on apostles like fire. In Act 2:2 in Upper Room after Jesus ascended into heaven, Jesus’ followers gathered together pray and Holy Spirit “filled the whole house where they were sitting.” “All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them. Tongues of fire seen on each head. This drew large crowds so Peter stood spoke about repentance and Gospel of Christ in Acts 2:14. Holy Spirit came so Church grew by 3,000 people in Acts 2:41. Christians celebrate Pentecost and people heard and understood own languages by disciples who didn’t speak those language some thought they were drunk. Peter preached to the crowds of thousands of people from all over the world who observed Pentecost passover holiday celebrations.15599395370531741443186.jpg

1. Holy Spirit Power filled the Church

People moved by Peter’s Sermon accept the Gospel Message so God added 3,000 new believers. Through this baptism of Holy Ghost and fire the apostles became anointed with knowledge and a greater understanding of the mysteries of the Gospel. Empowered and so imbued with CONFIDENCE in God preached to people of all nations and languages.”

2. Holy Spirit in Old Testament / Jesus.

Jesus promised the Holy Spirit in John 14:26 as the Helper for His people: The Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father sends in My Name, He will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all I said to you.” This New Testament fulfills Old Testament prophecy in Joel 2:28-29. And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days.”

3 History of Pentecost

Three things about Pentecost that will help you understand Acts 2.

1. Pentecost is a pilgrimage festival.

According to Jewish Law all the adult Jewish men come to Jerusalem to attend this celebration.

2. Pentecost was a holiday.

No work is done School and shops close

3. Celebrations in Law for Pentecost.

On Pentecost, the High Priest takes two loaves of freshly baked wheat bread to offer before the LORD. The wheat bread made from the newly harvested wheat. Pentecost time of Apostles was a great and grand harvest celebration. Streets of Jerusalem filled with thousands of pilgrims from every point of compass to celebrate goodness of God and bringing in of the wheat harvest. And thank God for Passover New Covenant in Christ for salvation of Jews and Gentiles. Harvest of firstfruits is the blessing and gift from God providing physical needs. And time God’s Word was given and Holy Spirit to reap fruits of righteousness. Pentecost is thanksgiving to God for Firstfruit/s Jesus who empowered the Holy Spirit in us to bear fruits of the Holy Spirit in Christ. The Holy Spirit helps us walk in God’s statutes and obey HIS Commands in Ezekiel 36:27.15599376535571741443186.jpgIMG-20190623-WA0001.jpgAlso a speeding driver in Germany and America was saved from fines and €105 (£93) fine in Germany when an eagle and a snow-white dove interceded on their behalf. The driver was caught on speed cameras – but his identity was hidden by the bird’s wings spread in flight. A light-hearted police statement suggested that perhaps “it was no coincidence the Holy Spirit” intervened reference to the dove as a symbol of that aspect of God in Christianity. “We understand the sign and leave speeder in peace the officials in Viersen by the Germany’s western border, added: “We hope the protected speeder likewise understands this ‘hint from above’ and drives appropriately in the future.” The driver was travelling at 54km/h (34mph) on stretch of road with a 30km/h speed limit, police said. Since the car and not driver identified, he was probably spared the €105 fine “thanks to the feathered guardian angel with seemingly carefully spread wings.” The Viersen police added the dove should be fined for moving so fast in the restricted zone. “Since we do not know where it is to be on time for upcoming Christian Holy day of Pentecost, we will allow mercy over justice here too.”
