Desolations

Daniel 9:2: NKJV: In the first year of his reign (King Darius), I Daniel, understood by the books the number of the years specified by the Word of the Lord through Jeremiah the prophet, that HE would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem.

 

With a contrite spirit Daniel repented and poured out his heart to our Lord God in the next few verses. In verse ten he prayed: We have not obeyed the voice of the Lord our God, to walk in HIS laws, which HE set before us by HIS servants the prophets. His father Abraham and his immediate family were selected to build a family for God and to set an example for all humanity to follow in reaching the goal of salvation for eternity. They did not fail!  To this day a meager amount of humanity has fully repented and been fully baptized with the Spirit, the power of our Creator. These servants fully try to obey the voice of the Lord our God to walk in HIS laws which HE set before us by HIS servants the prophets.

 

Daniel 8:23-24: And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors have reached their fullness, a king shall arise having fierce features, who understands sinister schemes. His power shall be mighty, but not by his own power; He shall destroy fearfully, and shall prosper and thrive; he shall destroy the mighty, and also the holy people. The next verse advises with deceit and cunning he shall exalt himself in his heart and even rise against the Prince of princes (Messiah, Christ Jesus); but he shall be broken without human means.  * This prophecy is beginning to take shape in this age as the king of the north (Italy and Germany again) forms to bring down the wrath of God. Mankind has been increasingly disobedient to our loving and tolerant Creator since the Garden of Eden. The latter time, the end of the age rapidly approaches because of disobedience.

 

Luke 21:19-21: By your patience possess your souls. But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near. Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those who are in the midst of her depart, and let not those who are in the country enter her.

 

Luke21:25-27: And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.  * The wrath against HIS people is the entire disobedient world. However, it will begin with the desolation of Judah again.  * Luke 21:24: And they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations. And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.

 

Matthew 24:24: For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. * As proclaimed by the Word of the Lord to Daniel: His power shall be mighty, but not of his own power. He shall destroy fearfully, and shall prosper and thrive; he shall destroy the mighty, and also the holy people. His deceitful and sinister schemes will not last long for the arrival of Messiah, Christ Jesus is imminent.  Who will be able to stand before Messiah? Only those worthy that do the will of God by keeping all HIS commandments spoken in Exodus, chapter 20 and Leviticus, chapter 23.

Romans 4:11-13: And He (Abraham) received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had while still uncircumcised, that he might be the father of all those who believe, though they are uncircumcised, that righteousness might be imputed to them also, and the father of circumcision to those who not only are of the circumcision, but who also walk in the steps of the faith which our father Abraham had while still uncircumcised. For the promise that he would be heir of the world was not to Abraham or to his seed through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.

 

The seed of all mankind that will walk in the steps of faith and keep the commandments of our Creator by faith with the very necessary power of the Holy Spirit will be heir of the world. If heirs, we must walk as Abraham and Messiah, Christ Jesus walked in faith. This is by keeping all commandments to become worthy to inherit the Kingdom come on earth which Christ is now preparing. Our reward comes after death as Christ set example and promised HE would come again in John 14:3: And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.

 

Isaiah 40:10: Behold, the Lord God shall come with a strong hand, and HIS arm shall rule for HIM; Behold, HIS reward is with HIM, and HIS work (recompense) before HIM. He will feed HIS flock like a shepherd; HE will gather the lambs with HIS arm, and carry them in HIS bosom, and gently lead those who are with young.  Romans 2:8-9 But to those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth (commandments), but obey unrighteousness—indignation and wrath, tribulation and anguish, on every soul of man who does evil, of the Jew first and also of the Greek (Gentile). * When we trust in faith and belief and have received the full Spirit of God to do HIS will by keeping all HIS commandments, we have opportunity for recompense for perfect obedience.

 

Romans 8:14: For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. * Verse 17: And if children, then heirs---heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with HIM, that we may also be glorified together.

 

Jude 20-21: But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.                                                                                                       Be blessed until we meet again!                                                            Visit: christisking.us   *   Visit cogmessiah.org
