14 Jesus says do not let your heart be troubled you believe in God believe in me. 2 In my Father’s house are many mansions if it were not so I will tell you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you I will come again to receive you to myself so where I am you will be also. 4 And you know where and the way you know. 5 Thomas said to him, Lord we know not where you go and how can we know the way? 6 Jesus said to him, I am the way, the truth and the life: no man comes to the Father but by me. 7 If you know me you know my Father and you know HIM because you see HIM in me. 8 Philip said to him Lord show us the Father. 9 Jesus said to him, I spent a long time with you yet you not know me, Philip? he who sees me sees Father God so how do you show us the Father 10 Believe I am in the Father and Father is in me. These words I speak to you I speak not of myself but from the Father dwelling in me HE does the works. 11 Believe me I am in the Father and the Father in me so believe for HIS works’ sake. 12 I say to you all who believe in me the works I do they will do also and greater works than these they will do because I go to my Father. 13 What you ask in my name will I do so Father is GLORIFIED in the Son. 14 If you ask anything in my name, I will do it. 15 If you love me keep commands. 16 Father God will give you another Comforter to be with you. 17 Even Spirit of truth the world cannot receive because it sees him not or know him but you know him for he dwells with you and in you. 18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. 19 A little while the world sees me no more but you see me because I live you shall live also. 20 That day you will know I am in my Father as you in me and I in you. 21 He that has my commands and keeps them loves me and those who love me shall be loved of my Father and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. 22 Judas said to Lord, how will you manifest yourself to us and not to the world? 23 Jesus said to him If you love me keep my words and my Father will love you we’ll come to abide with him. 24 He that loves me keeps my sayings so and the word you hear is not mine but is from the Father who sent me 25 These things I said while present with you but 26 the Comforter, Holy Spirit the Father sends in my name, he shall teach you all things to bring to your remembrance what I say to you and countless others. 27 Peace I leave with you my peace I give to you not as the world gives. Let not your heart be troubled, do not be afraid. 28 You heard me say to you I will go away and come again to you. If you love me you rejoice because I go to the Father my Father is GREATER than I. 29 I tell you before it comes to pass, when it comes to pass you will believe. 30 The prince of this world comes but has nothing in me. 31 The world must know I love the Father and the Father gives me commandments I do. Twenty-four elders in Revelation 4:4 sit on the twenty four thrones in heaven wearing white garments and symbolizing God’s righteousness. They are 12 sons of Jacob and elders of Israel named after land of Israel. The new Jerusalem has jewels of 12 tribes and 12 disciples of Jesus names of 12 gates and 12 foundations of New City of Zion. Revelation 21:12 City’s great high wall has twelve gates with twelve angels and names written of names of twelve tribes of the children of Israel.13 On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates and on the west three gates. 14 The wall of the city has twelve foundations, and in them names of twelve apostles of the Lamb. 15 And talked with me had a golden reed to measure city and gates and wall. 16 The city foursquare length as large as breadth measured city with reed, twelve thousand furlongs. Length and breadth height equal. 17 And wall hundred and forty four cubits measure.18 Building of wall is jasper, city is pure gold like clear glass. 19 Foundations of wall of city is precious stones: jasper, sapphire; chalcedony; emerald; 20 Then sardonyx; sardius; chrysolyte; beryl; topaz; chrysoprasus; jacinth, amethyst. 21 Twelve gates has twelve pearls each and the street of the city is pure gold as transparent glass. Citizens of heaven on earth like 12 tribes of Jacob, 12 disciples of Jesus were of once flesh and blood on earth in Israel and Jesus lived among them physically. Jesus promised homes in heaven and they are in the presence of God right now 24/7 praising God and worshipping in heaven. During Rapture Jesus will come for those in Christ into heaven just as he took these 24 elders other remnant left behind sealed. Years later all come back to live on the earth in the New Jerusalem Israel on earth.
GOD keeps in PERFECT PEACE the MIND kept on GOD because of TRUSTING GOD says Isaiah 26:3. A man declared FAITH in God that if GOD slays him he STILL LOVES AND TRUSTS GOD. In Job 13:15, Job’s faith in GOD was tested yet TRUSTS God and maintains his ways before God.Jesus Disciples said, they have nowhere else to go because Jesus has the WORDS OF ETERNAL LIFE. In John 6:68, Simon Peter answered Jesus, Lord to whom do we go? No matter their fate, challenging circumstances of life they had nowhere to go but run to LOVING ARMS OF GOD.Jesus asked His twelve disciples “Do you want to leave too like Judas Iscariot for greedy love of money, for pleasures of the world etc betrayed Jesus? They said absolutely not because he who has the Son has life. No matter the issues of life Jesus warned of these perilous times.D.The Have CONFIDENCE in GOD to see you through life in Jesus Name. GOD says do not fear those who kill flesh but cannot kill the soul in Jesus Name FEAR GOD who kills soul. Bible says in John 16:2 they will put you out of synagogues or kill thinking they are DOING GOD a favour. The day is coming they will face WRATH of GOD on DAY of the LORD.JESUS COMES TO GIVE LIFE EVEN LIFE MORE ABUNDANTLY IN JESUS NAME. As citizens of heaven THE REAL LIFE ETERNAL IN ETERNITY IS YET TO COME to reunite LOVED ONES as devil burns in hell for attacking GOD’S people globally. Example of faith is testimony of Horatio Spafford’s faith in GOD in his time of adversity. Weeping may endure but joy comes in the morning for those who MOURN with HOPE in Christ.On being notified of tragedy at sea and the loss of his children, Horatio Spafford immediately set sail for Wales to reunite with his heartbroken wife. Once at sea, Spafford asked the captain to point out exactly where the Ville du Havre sunk.
As he crossed fateful spot grief-stricken father sat with pen in hand and wrote what become one of Christendom’s most beloved song of HOPE and TRUST in GOD ELOHIM JEHOVAH in CHRIST.Christian believer’s salvation is in Christ alone because there is no other name given among men by which to be saved. In Psalm 139:8 Bible says, “If I ascend to the heavens GOD is there; if I descend in Sheol GOD is there. GOD’S WORD does not go void so achieves GOD’S purpose for sending word. In Psalm 139:9 If rise on wings of dawn or settle by farthest sea GOD is there. There is nowhere to go to escape wrath of God its a futile desire to run from the LORD so RUN to GOD. Philippians 4:7 says the PEACE OF GOD which passes all human understanding will keep your HEART and MIND SAFE in UNION with CHRIST JESUS. Its GOD’S Grace, Mercy and Compassion that gives Strength to endure in adversity to cope with grief, sorrow, pain, loss. GOD is still on the Throne so in Control of your life.
PERFECT PEACE FOR ALL WHO TRUST GOD.
When peace, like a river, attendeth my way, When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say, It is well, it is well, with my soul.
Though satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul.
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.
God called Moses in Exodus 2:1-6 in the burning bush by name ‘Moses! Moses in verse 4. God knew and called Moses by name for God knew Moses by name and God knows your name too. In Exodus 33:17 the LORD God told Moses I will do the thing you asked for you found grace in my sight and I know you by name.1 Samuel 3:1-10 says God called Samuel by name five times that night. Samuel’s name is known by God who knows your name too. Jesus after death when ladies at His tomb told by angel, “Go tell the disciples and PETER, Jesus is going ahead of you to Galilee in Mark 16:7. Peter is named by Jesus and God knows your name too. Be confident God knows your name to care in HIS LOVE for you.Isaiah 43:1 – Bible says in Jeremiah 1:5 Before God formed you in the womb He knows you, before you were born God sanctified you, ordained you prophet to the nations. Before you were born God called you from birth and mentioned you by name in Isaiah 49:1-26. Listen, O isles, hearken people from far. The LORD called Isaiah from the womb so God mentioned Isaiah by his name.Isaiah 43:1-28, The LORD God created you Jacob and He formed you O Israel, Fear not, God redeemed you and called you by your name as God’s property. In John 10:14-15, The GOOD SHEPHERD is God HE knows HIS sheep and HIS sheep know God and hear HIS VOICE daily.In John 10:3, the Good Shepherd Jesus the door opens and the sheep hear His voice. Calls His own sheep by name and leads them into green pastures. Psalms 139:1 – 127:24, in the Psalm of David, O LORD you searched me and know me. It is written in Psalms 91:14, Because you set your love on God, therefore God will deliver you and set him on high because you know God Elohim Jehovah’s Name.In Isaiah 43:2, When you pass through the waters I will be with you through rivers they shall not overflow you. When you walk through fire you will not be burnt or flames burn you. Isaiah 43:7 Says everyone called by MY NAME is created for God’s GLORY formed by God WHO made him. Exodus 33:17 The LORD told Moses I will show you MY GLORY as you said for you found grace in my sight and I know you by your name.Moses negotiates with God to lead Israel by cloud in the day and by fire at night. Moses no longer carried the burden of leading the people allowed Moses rest to let people God tells them to move or to stop. Moses told “the LORD lead the people so everyone will know You are leading us.” God’s response in Exodus 33:17 is I will do what you ask because I know you. God knows Moses and Moses knows God will do as HE said HE will do for Moses trusts who God knows Moses. The LORD assured Moses HIS Presence will go with Israel and responded with these words in Exodus 33:17: “I will do this thing you spoke of you found grace and favour in My sight, I know you by name.” This profound statement and is confidence boosting for Moses under so much pressure from people. This truth from to Moses is significant in our lives. Leaders find people look up to them not God to settle problems. So may not seek answers in Bible for guidance look for others for advise them. God is needed despite angelic help for journey to help with challenges of life in Promised land. Moses said, “If You know my name and I find grace in Your sight be with us. The LORD knows your name HIS favour on you to truly to experience HIS presence, grace in life, family, work or future. God knew all his mistakes, his anger, pride, murder, grief of loss of Miriam, his need for a new leader to help. God knows us by name. God knows moment from time knitted in womb and named. When we feel lonely God knows we are not alone for the Father God is with us. And Jesus promised to be with us to the end. God leads and gives rest. We trust God to be with us shows up in HIS Shekinah Glory to reveal His presence to give us hope.Revelation 20:15, says God knows those whose are found written in the book of life but those found cast in a lake of fire. God sees good deeds in secret. Matthew 6:4-8, says all your gifts in secret Father see in secret to reward you openly. The Almighty God, Creator of the Universe created you in HIS OWN IMAGE knows your name each hair on your head. He knows details of your life and loves you, wants to spend time with you. So God is part of your life as you are in HIS Image you have God’s inbuilt nature, qualities of God. All who call upon the Name of the LORD shall be saved in Jesus NameIn Isaiah 43:1-28 The Lord who created you Jacob and formed you O Israel: says “Fear not for I redeemed you and called you by name you are mine. And when you pass through the waters I will be with you and through the rivers they will not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you will not be burned and the flame shall not consume you. For I AM the Lord your God the Holy One of Israel, your Saviour. I give Egypt as your ransom Cush and Seba in exchange for you. You are precious to me, honoured and I love you, I give men in return for you in exchange for your life. Fear not, for I AM with you and I will bring your offspring from the east and west. I will gather your children from the north.In John 10:14-15 Jesus as good shepherd knows His own and His own know Him the Father knows Jesus and Jesus knows the Father and He lays down His life for His sheep. In John 10:3 His sheep hears His Voice, and He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. Psalm 139:1-24 says, O LORD, you search and know me you know when I sit down or when I rise up. You discern my thoughts from afar. You search out my path and my lying down and acquainted with all my ways. Before I speak the words on my tongue O LORD you know it. Your hedge of protection is behind and before me to and keep your hands upon me. God.In Psalm 91:14 “Because we hold fast to God in love He will deliver and protect us because we knows God’s Name. And Isaiah 49:1-26 says Listen O coastlands, give attention people from far. God has called me from my mother’s womb and named me. He made my mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of HIS hand he hid me, made me a polished arrow in HIS quiver he hides me. God said, “You are God’s servant in whom Israel will be glorified.” I said, “I laboured in vain and spent my strength for nothing in vain its LORD God who will recompense me. So the LORD formed Isaiah from the womb to be his servant to bring Jacob back to HIM and Israel gathered to him. Isaiah is honoured in the eyes of the LORD and God is our strength in Jesus Name.
God told Israel to take off jewelry ornaments by Mount Horeb in Exodus 33:6. Israelites told to strip themselves of their jewelry to stop wearing it due to their stiff neckedness that made God angry. God’s authority as gold provider teaches them to be humble not insolent because they dress in luxury gold. God forced them to be accountable for their stiff necked behaviour in life to reflect on their actions. So must appear in deep mourning repent of their circumstances as God told Moses. They cried at the sad news Moses relayed but remorse requires practice of a demure, sombre, silence to signify sorrow, grief and regret. Luxury jewels, trinkets, ornaments taken off, hairstyle kept simple, covered or shaved to be humble in the sight of God. Some wear sandals or walk barefoot in sackcloth as sign of humility to seek face of God in prayer of repentance. Humble penitence pleases God if mankind strips off excess to lay themselves bare before God to enter HIS Presence in the temple in silence. Its a deep reflection to seek God’s grace, mercy and forgiveness to search their heart, soul in repentance. God’s decision is not cruelty but of pity and mercy of God’s concern and love for them to change. Faces must show grief, tears or grievous sighs, groaning, sobs pleading for remission of sins, promises of eternal life in Christ. God required Israelites to show true remorse in their appearance in anguish of souls at the foot of Mount Horeb. God warned them about their stiff-neckedness that results in punishment from God. Isaiah 2:19-22 in Bible says people hide in caves, holes, rocks in fear of the LORD’S GLORY and Majesty as HE rises to shake earth. 20 That day people will cast idols of silver, gold made to worship to moles and cave bats. Revelation 6:15-17 kings of the earth, princes, generals, rich, mighty, slave, free hide in caves of rocks, mountains. 16 They call mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of God who sits on the throne and from wrath of the Lamb. 17 The great day of wrath has come and who can stand God?”As Revelation 6:15-17 says The kings of earth, princes, generals, rich, mighty, slave or free hide in caves among rocks of mountains. 16 They call on mountain and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of God who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb. 17 The great day of wrath has come who can stand God?” God expects humility to see external physical norms associated with sadness or grief and sorrow. God told Moses to tell them to put off ornaments until God decides what to do with Israel to move on as God instructed Moses. This God’s command was to a “stiff neck” people in time of anger against their rebellion. It does not mean Christians must never wear gold. Neither are ornaments to be a centre of focus for wrong reasons of a negative attention seeking behaviour. In 1 Timothy 2:9 he warns Church women to dress in moderation compared to the vulgar outlandish costumes to draw an attention of moral decadence. In 1 Peter 3:3 the problems of affluence in Church meant adornment outwardly arranging the hair, wearing gold putting on fine apparels became competition to outdo each other to show off even in giving. It is still an issue as Peter is talking about modesty in dress and moderation in all things. Jewelry is good as God adorns His Bride with jewels in prophecy living in Golden heavenly city bedazzled with precious jewel in New Heaven and New earth freely given to all those in Christ.But going and spending too much time preparing self with gold to look bizarre to impress to seduce in the presence of God’s house is at the heart of the matter. Gold is good to Glorify God at the heart of worship in Church in His Presence so is not fashion catwalk. Christians live in a world of luxury and decadence Peter warned of the danger of lack of modesty in adornment in the Church. A senseless extravagance to show off is not modesty to focus on God for their selfless service of goodness. Bible says Christians to be adorned modestly in humility. Timothy says ladies in church adorn your heart. I Timothy 2:9 says wear modest apparel and be properly covered. In moderation use simple braid hair, gold, pearls not a costly clothing to show off wealth. These passages confirm the notion of stripping off fine jewels and rich clothes in times of deep grief and humiliation in Micah 1:8. To wail and howl; strip in sackcloth or simple clothes to make wailing sound of mourning required by a sincere grief. In Numbers 31:50 some gave offering to the LORD gold articles, armlet bracelets, signet rings earrings, necklaces to make atonement before the LORD. 51 Moses and Eleazar the priest accepted gold, all crafted articles. 52 from commanders of thousands, commanders of hundreds so Moses and Eleazar presented gifts to the LORD weighed 16,750 shekels. 53 From soldier’s plunder. 54 Moses and Eleazar the priest took gold to tent of meeting as memorial of Israelites before the LORD.Godly sorrow and mourning has a hope of eternal life and given precious jewels. Church is not a time for fashion parades to show off gold wealth. Or of changing clothes many times during sad funerals like a wedding feast. Costs thousands to those planning funeral to spend money after death but not in the lifetime. Deep grief or sorrow strips fineries of life in sadness for a season. God expects life to return to normal after the time of sorrow and grief. In 1 Samuel 19:24 the extreme deep devotional exercise of Saul under prophetic influence strips him bare before God. Israel is humbled by God. Ancient Jewish name יהוה of Jehovah’s Divine protection in a golden ornament used to make golden calf had consequence laying naked, defenceless. All ornaments or spiritual things of God commanded to lay off and to not wear symbols of Divine protection forfeited by transgression until after repentance. God said, “That I may know what to do to Israel” under God’s Divine protection shield is commanded to put aside. Many parted with ornaments put aside and later worn again. Lots of jewels, wives, daughters, sons of 600,000 men stripped to make golden calf. Rest of ornaments later used in Tabernacle furnishing so much people were asked to stop giving it became too much in Exodus 36:5-6. A lesson here is not to put confidence in gold wealth, riches but put confidence in God. Whoever lost gold or riches God is able to restore a 100 fold in this life and in eternal life to come in heaven.
Jesus and 144,000 Jews on Mount Zion in GREAT TRIBULATION so unscathed. Jesus works with them at Mount Zion in Israel. In Revelations 5:9, 10; 20:6, they are in Israel with Jesus on Mount Zion. The 144,000 Jews in Revelation 7:4, Revelation 14:1-3 with the Lamb, Jesus standing on Mount Zion in Israel. The 144,000 work with Jesus in John 1:29; 1 Peter 1:19 in the literal physical Israel Mount Zion on earth. Jesus joins 144,000 before unleashing GREAT TRIBULATION to the maximum intensity. Jesus goes to Israel during ministry of 144,000 with them to give them to evangelise. Earth is joined to heaven in Psalm 2:6; Hebrews 12:22 so Jesus comes and goes to earth from heaven. The 144,000 Jews sealed means they have special protection from God’s judgment against wicked and antiChrist in GREAT TRIBULATION of Revelation 6 : 17. For seven years warn Israel of the judgment of God against all those who reject God and Jesus to complete plan of salvation for Israel. Daniel 9:24–27 says 144,000 first fruits, Revelation 14:4 are REDEEMED in Israel in Zechariah 12:10 and Romans 11:25–27. Women priests evangelize too. So 144,000, sealed in Revelation 7:3 completed BEFORE 4 angels Released in Trumpet 6 & Woe 2 in Revelation 9:13. Then the 6th angel blows trumpet and a voice 14 says RELEASE 4 angels bound in great river Euphrates. 15 Those 4 angels kill a third of mankind. After 144,000 in post-rapture world proclaim gospel of Jesus to the world during great tribulation period. Their ministry bring countless multitudes from every nation, tribe, people, language, in Revelation 7: 9 receive Christ. In the Bible they play an important role in restoring nation of Israel and world in the final days before the Second Coming physically of Jesus to earth. 144,000 unannounced on TV but known when Jesus takes CONTROL on earth during final 1,335 days of GREAT TRIBULATION on earth. The 144,000 Jews preach to Jews and all the nations, encounter Jesus preaching repentance to receive Gospel of Kingdom of God. In Revelation 14:6 Three angels flying with ETERNAL GOSPEL proclaim to who live on the earth to work with 144,000 and the two witnesses to win countless the multitudes of saints from all nations, kindred, tongues appear to before God, GREAT TRIBULATION souls saved. So sealed 144,00 Redeemed from earth go before throne singing exclusive new song. Christians see 144,000 after rapture and the GREAT TRIBULATION of the judgement wrath of God to destroy people, trees. 144,000 Jewish converts of 12,000 from 12 tribes, Israel evangelize Jews, Gentiles save countless multitude all in white in heaven, Revelations 7:1-4.The 144,000 have testimony of Jesus as witnesses to testify about Jesus’ Gospel concerning God in Revelations 1:9. John is told to worship God by angel to keep words of this book in Revelation 19:10. Saints worship God like Jesus did doing God’s so believers, angels are the “sons of God” in Genesis 6:2,4, Job 1:6; 2:1; Job 38:7. In Luke 1:35; 3:38 Jesus and Adam created directly by God. Those saved or born again are sons of God in Luke 20 : 36, John 1:12; Romans 8:14, and Romans 8:19; Galatians 3:26. Believers in Christ by faith also believe in the Testimony of God concerning Son in John 1:1;John 5 :9-10. Peter told Cornelius in Acts 10:25-26 worship God not man. Lystra people told by Barnabas and Paul in Acts 14:10-15 worship God, serve no other gods in Exodus 20:3. Jesus refused to worship satan said, Go away its written ‘Worship LORD God serve HIM only in Matthew 4 :10. Revelation 7:1-4 says Jesus, 144,000 standing on Temple Mount Zion, Israel. Testimony of Jesus Hebrew μαρτυρία martyria is to testify about Christ Jesus is reason for testimony of Jesus and God. Jesus is source of testimony to God and spirit of prophecy. The testimony about Jesus is spirit of prophecy by Holy Spirit through Spirit of Christ in John 14:18; Romans 8:9; 1Peter 1:11. The source of prophecy in Revelation 1:1-2 is Jesus so Testimony of Jesus cause persecution, martyrdom of these saints in Revelations 1:9; 6:9; 11:7; 12:11, 12:17 and 20:4. So Christ suffered many things to enter His Glory in Luke 24:25. 144,000 with Jesus during Second Coming and in “New Heavens,” heavenly government ruling the “new earth.” Holy righteous earth brings God to dwell in Jerusalem Israel in Isaiah 65: 17;2 Peter 3:13. Jesus reigns with chosen kings, priests for 1,000 years in Israel till war with Gog and Magog Armageddon battle takes place. Then Revelation 19:1 says Heaven rejoices at fall of ‘Babylon,’ loud voice of multitudes said “Alleluia, Salvation, GLORY, HONOUR, POWER, belong to the LORD God. 2 So True and righteous are HIS judgments. As God is judging to avenge blood of HIS servants shed. 3 Shouted, ‘Alleluia’ as smoke rises up forever. 4 So twenty-four elders, four living creatures fall down, worship God who sat on throne say, “Amen! Alleluia!” 5 A voice from throne said, “Praise our God, all you HIS servants all who fear HIM both great and small. These GREAT TRIBULATION saints and other saints in Christ resurrect in eternal life in God’s Kingdom. God’s CHOSEN 144,000 Jews are only Males from Israel. God LOVES Jews and will NOT replace them with any church or Jehovah’s witnesses or anyone claiming to be chosen. God KNOWS the 12 tribes and chooses them to do HIS end time work for HIM. So Christian believers are grafted in God’s Covenant with Israel so Jews and the Gentiles are ONE IN CHRIST. God has mansions for countless multitudes from all nations, tribes and languages and so Jesus welcomes all.

Brown, We are Not Afraid of antiChrist
Isaiah texts found in the Qumran caves in Israel talk about Jesus blessings in the last days. Messiah Jesus will establish His rule over Jerusalem as center of all world government for Jews and Gentiles in Isaiah 2:2–4, 11:10, 42:1. In the last days mountain of the LORD’s Temple will be established as highest of all mountains. Exalted above hills, and all nations will stream to there. The law will go out from Zion word of LORD from Jerusalem in Isaiah 2:2–3. Israel in endtimes of GREAT TRIBULATION and great distress in Matthew 24:16-21. After 62 weeks Messiah cut off by the people of the prince who destroyed city and the sanctuary. Isaiah 14:1 says God will fully restore Israel with Gentiles grafted in and their Covenant land restored.They make covenant with many for one week but in middle of week puts end to sacrifice and offering. The abomination sacrilege destroy but God’s annihilation poured on one who destroys’” in Daniel 9:26,27. GREAT TRIBULATION prophecy of Daniel, Jesus and John in Revelations are days of great testing, trial hardships. God sends Elijah, Moses and 144,000 to evangelise in GREAT TRIBULATION so countless multitudes will be saved. But it is such desperate times, people will go into caves, rocks holes on earth because of the fear of God’s wrath. The earth is shaken by earthquakes, storms, tsunami fires, volcanoes floods etc. That DAY will cast away idols and go in clefts of rocks and crevices because of the fear of God rising to shake earth in Isaiah 2: 19-21.In time of GREAT TRIBULATION as Jesus foretold the world will face adversities in Matthew 24:25 “There will be signs in the sun, moon, stars on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity. The sea and waves roaring; 26 men’s hearts failing them from fear and expectation of things coming on earth for powers of heavens will be shaken. 27 They will see the Son of Man coming in CLOUD with POWER and GREAT GLORY. 28 When these things happen, look up lift up your heads your redemption is near, says Luke 21:25-28. God’s SOVEREIGN plan brings justice to end evil on earth to stop the persecution hatred of Jews and the Gentiles grafted in. People will try to escape God’s wrath so beg to die unable to do so, “and say to mountains, “Cover us to hills “Fall on us in Hosea 10:8. Kings of earth, great men, nobles, rich, mighty, slave, free, hides in caves, rocks, mountain from the FACE of ONE seated on THRONE from Wrath of Lamb Jesus on GREAT DAY of WRATH in confirms the Bible in Revelation 6:15-17.That DAY people seek death don’t find it death flees from them in Revelation 9:6. Isaiah prophecy on God’s WRATH, Jesus Jeremiah, prophets true. Jesus says, This happens but not yet end in Matthew 24 : 6. GREAT TRIBULATION to happen since beginning of world not happen again in Matthew 24:21. In GREAT TRIBULATION of those DAYS sun is darkened, moon not give light, stars fall from heaven and powers of heavens will be shaken by God in destructions. Then Sign of Son of Man will appear in heaven as all tribes on earth will mourn and SEE the Son of Man coming in cloud of heaven in POWER and GREAT GLORY. God will send His angels with the great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other in Matthew 24:29-31. The great DAY of God coming is a DAY of wrath, troubles and distress, devastating storm, desolation, gloom, clouds thick darkness and alarm against fortified cities and high towers. Isaiah 53:4-5 prophesied “Surely Jesus bore our griefs and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem Him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. 5 He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him. And with His stripes we are healed. Christ Jesus came to save headland deliver all who accept Him. But Time of distress for mankind oblivious to sin against God their blood poured out like dust and flesh like dung. Their silver or gold unable to save on the DAY of God’s WRATH on earth in Zephaniah 1:14-18. God’s believers don’t be afraid on a DAY for all those who reject Jesus’ salvation. Time will be up if they don’t repent and and seek God for Mercy and forgiveness and salvation in Christ. Jesus Reigns on earth from Mount Zion headquarters in Israel. So saints, kings, queens in God’s Eternal Kingdom rule, Second Coming physically in Jerusalem millennial ruleGod says PRAY for the PEACE of Jerusalem in Psalm 122:6-9: “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: ‘May those who love you be secure. May there be peace within your walls and security within your citadels.’ For the sake of my brothers and friends, I will say, ‘Peace be within you.’ For the sake of the house of the LORD our God, I will seek your prosperity.” Praying for peace and good to come to God’s HOLY CITY also benefits those who PRAY. God promised blessings on those who bless Israel and curses on those who curse Israel Genesis 12:3. Jerusalem is center of God’s Kingdom to Jews first and to all Gentiles who follow Jesus. Pray for her peace, security and God’s intervention.
Bible details of Jesus’ birth in Gospel in Matthew 2:1 is during the days of Herod who died in 4 B.C. Joseph and Mary fled Bethlehem with Jesus Herod ordered all boys 2 years old and younger in vicinity killed. Jesus could be 2 before Herod’s death so His birth between 6 and 4 B.C. In Luke 2:1-2, “In those days a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world be registered. This was first registration when Quirinius was governor of Syria.” Caesar Augustus reigned from 27 B.C. to A.D. 14 and Quirinius’ record and Judea in 6 B.C. This census mentioned by Luke is history details of time of Christ’s birth in Bethlehem in 6-5 B.C. Luke’s timeline: “Jesus, began His ministry about thirty years of age” in Luke 3:23 during time of John the Baptist in wilderness. John started “in the fifteenth year of reign of Tiberius Caesar. Pontius Pilate governor of Judea, Herod was tetrarch of Galilee.

As Jesus’ family moved Baby Jesus from Bethlehem into Nazareth and into Egypt to escape the massacre of innocents by Herod.

When back into Jerusalem but another cruel Herod in power they moved back to Nazareth. Versions of living history of Jesus exists in many accounts narrated from other perspectives. Regenerations in modern cities means some old names changed but others retain consistency in the records.

God’s word prophesied fulfilled in Jesus tells people to hear this Gospel message and to be saved in Christ Jesus Name. God Chose Jesus to REPRESENT HIM to bring people back to God before it is too late to repent. GOD HIGHLY EXALTED JESUS ABOVE ALL other names for there is no other name given among mankind to be saved.
