The Firstborn

Revelation 1:4-6: NKJV…Grace to you and peace from HIM who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven Spirits who are before HIS throne and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth. To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in HIS own blood, and made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.

 

John, the recorder of our Lord God’s logos, the Word, Messiah Christ Jesus (John 1:1-3), fully begins Revelation. The apostle prays for the peace of the soon coming Kingdom, assuring grace from God, the I Am. Who is to come refers to the soon return of Messiah. The seven Spirits are surely spiritual overseers of the first seven gentile houses of God expanding His Jewish laws of love to the entire world.  Jesus Christ, the firstborn from the dead as the holy lamb will soon increase His family of kings and priests on earth. Many of these obedient servants are Christian/Messianic Jews soon to be resurrected from the dead.

 

Philippians 1:21: For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain. * Our Eternal God keeps His faithful servants alive until His purpose is complete. Even in prison, the Apostle Paul continued to persevere unto death. The vision of his resurrection to become a king or priest in the soon coming Kingdom of God was a joy beyond compare.

 

Revelation 3:19-21: As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent. Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears MY voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with ME. To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with ME on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.* Even the angels of heaven who abandoned their Creator to worship the god of liars, Satan the devil; our gentle Eternal forces none of His creation to be obedient to His laws of love. Not only the Jews, but all residents of this evil world are children of God. All must abide in His holy laws of truth to be acceptable in the coming Kingdom of God that will be headquartered in Jerusalem with the King and priest of God Most High

.

 Genesis 14:18: Then Melchizedek king of Salem (Jerusalem, city of coming peace ,Psalm 76:2)) brought out bread and wine, he was the priest of God Most High (Hebrew is Cohen of El ‘Elyon).* Salem is derived from Hebrew Shalom, meaning peace, health, integrity, wholeness, which will soon become the Eternal King’s headquarters. The Eternal King is also referred to in Psalm 110:4. The next two verses tell of His soon coming wrath and punishment because of disobedience of all mankind. * Psalm 110:5-6: The Lord is at YOUR right hand; He shall execute kings in the day of His wrath. He shall judge among the nations, He shall fill the places with dead bodies; He shall execute the heads of many countries. * Please read more about the Son of God in Hebrews, chapter 5.

 

Hebrews 6:1-6:…Let us go on to perfection, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and faith toward God, of the doctrine of baptisms, of laying on of hands, of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. And this we will do if God permits.
for it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy spirit, and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come,, if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put HIM to an open shame.

 

Hebrews 10:26: For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins.  Verse 30: for we know Him who said: Vengeance is MINE. I will repay: says the Lord. And again: The Lord will judge His people. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. * For thousands of years all mankind has grown more and more disobedient. The truth of the entire logos (Word) of our Eternal has become trampled as the god of liars, the devil, trains greater numbers in deceit.* Many think they are worshiping the Eternal by not fearing the Lord in keeping His commanded 7 Holy Sabbaths beginning with the Seventh day (Saturday). The other commanded Sabbaths are listed in chapter 23 of Leviticus. This is the eternal law of heaven forever. Vengeance of the Lord is rapidly developing because of disobedience.

 

Deuteronomy 28:43-45: The alien who is among you shall rise higher and higher above you, and you shall come down lower and lower. He shall lend to you, but you shall not lend to him; he shall be the head, and you shall be the tail. Moreover all these curses shall come upon you and pursue and overtake you, until you are destroyed, because you did not obey the voice of the Lord your God, to keep His commandments and His statutes which He commanded you.  Verse 60-61: Moreover He will bring back on you all the diseases of Egypt, of which you were afraid, and they shall cling to you. Also every sickness and every plague, which is not written in this Book of the Law, will the Lord bring upon you until you are destroyed. * True Christians are spiritual Israel and will live forever!

 

Psalm 18:32: It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect. Verse 28 For you will light my lamp. The Lord my god will enlighten my Darkness. * Be blessed until we meet again!
