Who Is This Woman of Mystery?

Rev. Raymond M. Jackson

Strange doctrines float through the Christian realm—One such teaching disturbing the people striving to be Bride material finds its roots in Rev. 12. This group teaches this mysterious women in Rev. 12 is the church and the man child born unto her is the supernatural element within the church who is going to be used to bring about a world wide revival with supernatural signs and wonders. According to this teaching these people are looking for a great world sweeping revival — according to this latter rain teaching, This man-child is supposed to be the element of an ever-coming part of the church more or less like a core from within the apple. THEY PICTURE THE WOMAN AS THE CHURCH; and the man-child a certain overcoming realm of it, and this over-coming realm they portray it to rule and reign with Christ, but on this side of the millenium: these will have power and authority and they are absolutely going to BRING REVIVAL TO THE WORLD, and will literally turn cities up-side down for God. Brothers and sisters I want you to know I am not saying this to belittle anyone’s teaching, but I will have to say if what I’m going to say is right, God might have, in days gone by, allowed such things as that to go on, for it wasn’t time – but if there is ever a time that there has to be a true analysis of it, I am sure it would be right now when we’re all asking God to make us ready for the coming of the Lord. Now we’re headed either for one of two things (1) We are getting ready to go be with the Lord or (2) else he’s getting us ready for a great world revival, now IT CAN’T BE BOTH. You can’t have your mind centered on a world wide revival and be getting ready to meet the Lord Jesus AT THE SAME TIME, is that under-stood? Too many people today are constantly trying to interpret TO-MORROW on the basis of what has previously happened, never once stopping to realize that some day the sickle must be thrust in for the very last time. They never seem to grasp the fact that one day the last gleaned grain is going to be brought in to the garner. By use of comparison, if within the eyes of God there were only three grains still left lying out there to be gleaned, how could we possibly interpret the scriptures that the world is ready for a great world-wide revival, WHEN THERE IS ONLY A HAND-FULL OF GRAIN lying out there to be gleaned? And when that very last grain is gleaned, THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO SCRIPTURAL GROUNDS TO STAND ON SAYING GOD WILL LEAVE THE CHURCH HERE ANY LONGER. She must go and be with her Lord. So after we finish our lesson today I’m going to leave it up to you, you look at it however you want to, but I’m going to make this statement, if God ever does anything, he will do this, he will work a work in our lives to get us ready to get out of here. By this I do not mean to imply we should lose our vision for the lost. No, neighbor! I know what it is to run combines, one thing is to mount a tractor and begin cutting a full field of grain but don’t you know every time you make a round, that land of standing grain is getting SMALLER? And every reaper of grain look forward to the day he has made his last round. You cannot continue over the same field. If it’s a threshing machine every bundle you throw in there is one less bundle that that machine is going to have to go through, and the threshing of this gospel grain has been going constantly for almost 2,000 years. God has reached a people in each generation. In by gone days, people have placed great emphasis upon the fact souls must be saved. That was true! It’s just like a huge combine going around a field, as long as there is a standing gain – KEEP ON THRESHING, but as you continue threshing, THAT STANDING GRAIN GETS SMALLER, how can you possibly make it larger when each round you make – causes it to get smaller? Little does people realize you cannot interpret tomorrow on the basis of what yesterday was, the scripture plainly teaches us what tomorrow shall be. If in God’s program there is ever to be a set hour of preparation for the rapture it is now. We must hasten to trim our lamps (Matt. 25) or (2) either we must get ready for a world shaking revival. If that be true then we’re nowhere close to the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. Would you care to examine this teaching in the light of the scriptures? And when we do – we will learn one thing. There can only be one interpretation to the scripture – every one cannot have his own opinion. Since the confusion stems from Rev. 12: let’s analize this entire chapter carefully by reading Rev. 12.


Revelation 12, Woman With Child clothed in the sun with the moon under her feet, representing the nation of Israel

“And there appeared a great wonder in heaven, a woman clothed with the sun and the moon under her feet and upon her head a crown of twelve stars and she being with child cried travailing in birth and pained to be delivered.” Let’s examine carefully THIS WOMAN. It is she alone who unlocks the mystery, remember it was John who in a vision saw this woman in the heavens, why was this vision in heaven? Remember that it was through the stars that, to a great extent, God’s first bible was written. By arranging and placing certain constellations of stars together in certain groups and patterns, this permitted the patriarchs in bygone ages to study the stars in order to understand the over-all picture how God had portrayed his plan for the ages. Always bear this in mind, in the heavens meant only one thing that it was only a reflection or vision of something that is going to transpire literally down here upon this earth-and not within the heavens. IS THAT UNDERSTOOD?


As we examine this woman of mystery there are certain minute details and characteristics about her which plainly tell us who she is. Number one is the most important, THIS WOMAN WAS WITH CHILD, which can only mean one of two things-either this woman was already married or she was an adultress woman. Which? Some have thought this woman to be the church – impossible – the Bride of Christ is pictured as a virgin, she is only in her espoused period – (1 Cor. 12:1-4), to the Lord, THE WEDDING HASN’T PLACE YET – and won’t until Rev. 19. Now that ought to rule out of your minds any possibility this woman being the church – this can’t be the church! This mystery woman was with child, she’s married – and if she’s married then it can’t be the church but WHO IS SHE? It is none other than the NATION OF ISRAEL! You.say prove it, I won’t but the
scriptures will, No. 3-she wearing a crown upon her head identifies who she.is, not only is she a woman, not only is she with child BUT THIRDLY SHE IS WEARING A CROWN – she is a queen. No ordinary housewife goes around wearing a crown. This woman has a crown on tier head, she’s a queen-ISRAEL IS THE QUEEN OF NATIONS, though she has been mistreated. Through her disobedience she has been in dispersion, but in the eyes of Jehovah God she’s a queen, she’s his wife. Though he has put her away for a period of time yet she is his wife – for remember in the analysis of all this, Rev. 12 PORTRAYS THE TRUE SPIRITUAL ISRAEL, A NATION Rev. 12 is not necessarily to be understood that this great chapter incorporates all the 16,000,000 Jews recorded on the face of the earth today, this incorporates only that true Jew that is loyal to Jehovah, that true devout Jew which God has watched over down through the ages of time and it is that true spiritual, loyal Jew that God has protected and watched over and guided. That shows why there is still in existence a nation of Israel today. If God had not constantly over-shadowed and protected a certain element of the Jew, that nationality would have long ago gone into extinction. Again I repeat this mystery woman is not -the church – she is Israel, the wife of Jehovah.


The fact that she is with child shows that she has become expectant with the seed word of Jehovah the word of prophecy. These: prophets prophesied the word of God, that seed of truth, through the scope of time to Israel that there would come a deliverer out of Zion; there will come a king out of Zion, there would come one to sit on the throne of David, there would be a Shiloh.


All these prophecies and many more are none other than the seed word of Jehovah planted into the mind (womb) of Israel. That one day as a nation she would give forth birth to the one that would rule all nations. The very minute these words begin to drop into the mind of Israel through God’s mouthpiece THE PROPHETS, the nation of Israel will begin her journey. Notice carefully this vision of the woman portrayed in the heavens is to be understood in this light, though. There it shows the picture in complete detail it was but a reflection shown in the heavens as to what God had planned for Israel and since she portrays a nation, THAT NATION IS HERE ON EARTH, but on earth what was complete in every detail in heaven must be fulfilled through lengthy dispensations of time on earth -that’s why Rev. 12 pictured (3) outstanding things about this woman. (1) SHE STOOD WITH THE MOON UNDER HER FEET -meaning as a nation in verse 1 she had risen above the age of the law. For around 1900 years – shall we say, from the call of Abraham to the birth of Christ and his Crucifixion, the nation of Israel did pass through the law age, right? Watch closely, here’s what throws some people off. They automatically think since the law was a type and foreshadow of grace and since the woman is clothed in the sun, this would mean that when she does receive the gospel back – that’s when she’s clothed in the sun, to them that’s what completes the picture, THAT IS NOT IT. Remember this, that same law age which referred to the dispensation of grace had far more statements declaring there was going to be a KINGDOM AGE – FOR ISRAEL. The same law that spoke there would come one to be a Saviour carried far, far more prophecies stating there would one conic to rule all nations, and when the dispensation of grace was introduced or offered to Israel, remember as a nation Israel had full access to this Gospel for a period of 70 years before she went into her dispersion. When she receives that gospel back she won’t have it 7 years before her Messiah returns to earth. How can we believe that Israel being clothed in the sun could possibly mean that she has been brought into the gospel of grace, when she would have that gospel in her possession for only such a short period, when the scriptures teaches that for 42 of these months the anti-Christ shall seek to liquidate all Jews and they shall be in hiding. The very fact that she is clothed in the sun only reveals the COMPLETE PICTURE OF ISRAEL BEING FULLY REDEEMED AND REINSTATED IN HER HOME-LAND WITH CHRIST HER KING ruling in her midst on the throne of David, and THE NATION SHIN-ING BRILLIANTLY DURING THE MILLENIUM kingdom reign in the kingdom age. That is the absolute truth. Remember this, as a gentile looking at it we have had access to grace for 1900 years, we are trying to make it fit our vision—our vision for 1900 years has been grace, grace, grace and I grant you God will give Israel grace, but it will be for one purpose – to wrap her up and put her in the millenium, is that understood? When God does give back to her the gospel of grace it’s for the purpose of sealing in that 144,000. (Rev. 7) You can rest assured of this one thing, it is to awaken that nation and make her realize that the kingdom she has longed for and the Messiah that she has yearned for, IS JUST AHEAD„ BUT DON’T forget, according to Dan. 12 – Rev. 12 and many other scriptures Israel has yet another dark hour to wade through, and the nation cannot shine as a nation in all the fullness of its glory until it has been completely reinstated in the kingdom age when their Messiah sits on the throne of David and the glory of the Lord shall fill the earth. Then and only then shall that nation of Israel be lifted up and shine brilliantly as the noonday sun in God’s program. It will be that nation who will stand and shine above all other nations, that’s why the bible plainly states ALL NATIONS SHALL GO TO ZION AND TO JERUSALEM TO WORSHIP THE LORD OF HOSTS, (Zach. 14) Friend if you cannot imagine the glory of the nation of Israel in that age and hour when it is flourishing under that kind of glory, as all other nations have to go there and pay homage to the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords, shining in all the brightness of The sun during that 1000 year reign, then I’LL HAVE TO SAY SOME-THING IS WRONG WITH YOUR REVELATION. Remember when grace has been reinstated back to Israel it’ll only be for a very short duration of time. Time only to seal in that 144,000, but remember when that woman of Rev. 12 is shining forth clothed in the noon-day sun, SHE WILL HAVE THE MOON UNDER HER FEET.


It is the reflection of what the sun is somewhere. Now you just hold firmly onto your grace, understand? And remember that this same law age which promised Israel a kingdom age promised you and I grace, is that understood? Notice where the moon UNDER HER FEET, this reveals Israel HAS PASSED through the law age into the millenium reign. The law age spoke mightily of the millenium. Show me ONE scripture under that law dispensation which spoke of grace and I’ll show you THREE that will speak of the millenium. It depends on how to get a gentile to look at it, because lie still thinks this BIBLE is his book—it’s not our book, it’s the Jews book. God only loaned it to us while he dealt harshly with Israel for rejecting grace. Not one Gentile wrote a single letter in that book, they were all Jews, I’m so happy that he loaned it to us aren’t you? I also realize that now our time is rapidly running out, and Israel’s prime is just coming in, in fact the entire world is discussing ways and means how to quieten Israel down. Not aware that she is God’s time piece (CLOCK). When we see all the happenings in and around Israel we know according to God’s clock it’s about time for the coming of the Lord. This is more enthusiastic to us than some one informing a rich man concerning certain stocks on Wall Street going up. Amen. When the true christian feels a sense of rejoicing over the situation in the Middle East the wordly folks say you’re a crazy group of people to want the world in that shape. We didn’t ask for it to be this way, but since it’s here, God says these would be the very signs to inform his beloved bride of his coming. So what does the moon under her feet and clothed in the sun represent? It shows she’s in the millenium, she has passed through these ages and is standing fully clothed in glory and splendor in the millenium. 12 stars in her crown, she’s identified by her 12 tribes, no other nation on earth consists of 12 tribes outside the small scattered Arab nations who cannot be united – the more they attempt to unite themselves the more disunited they become, the only reason they’re united as much as they are today is because of Israel’s presence in the. Holy Land. If Israel wasn’t there they would be disunited like all the rest of the world. Yes only one woman is identified by 12 stars in her crown, that’s Israel with her 12 tribes who will not be fully identified as a nation (in fulfillment of this) until she has gone into the millenium. I:ere she will be fully reinstated and identified by her 12 tribes. This now shows beyond any doubt who is in the Panoramic vision (Israel, not the church) – but watching this progress unfold down here on earth takes a great deal of time. As she has come through the law age God offered her the dispensation of grace which she rejected. After a period of 70 years he gives it to the gentiles, and for over 1900 years we have enjoyed the privilege to hear of the saving grace of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ – who was this man-child born and destined to rule all nations. This man-child was the same one who was to be the Saviour of the world.


In flesh, the WORD was to be born only once, but in advents of coming HE COMES TWICE, AND NOTE THIS BOTH TIMES THAT HE COMES, ISRAEL WILL BE IN HER HOMELAND. Israel was in the land at his first coming to fulfill Daniel’s prophecy when he came the first time to be the Saviour. That is when the man-child was actually born, he was born to be king, but Israel rejected fulfill the scriptures in John 1:11 but brother since they would not have him, he was rejected. Because of that rejection God simply reached over and cut Israel off (meaning he simply shut off his CLOCK Similar to stopping the clicking of a stop-watch), as far as prophecy is concerned, ISRAEL STOPPED RIGHT THERE; as far as her advancing in her dispensation and in order to fulfill it, God simply picked her up and tosses her out of the land. No longer did the Eternal God look upon Israel as the nation within the land. He now views her as a scattered people and dealing with her as such in order to preserve her-over 1900 years he has been dealing with the gentiles,.


Continuing on we read in Rev. 12, “And there appeared another wonder in heaven and behold a great red dragon.”Satan of course—yet we are aware that Satan is not a dragon in the sense of having a physical dragon-shaped body. HE IS A SPIRIT. Then what are we looking at? Remember this is an over-all picture being portrayed in the heavens, signifying a happening here upon earth. The dragon is portrayed as the spirit of Satan combined collectively into a world empire system. Note this unusual dragon appearing in the heavens -He had seven heads and ten horns. What could this possibly mean—? Remember this dragon having 7 heads and 10 horns stood -BEFORE THE WOMAN ISRAEL (Not the church), it’s absolutely a picture of a completed embodiment of all of Satan’s power and his manipulation. This is none other than a picture of the Old Roman Empire after it has gone through all of its different stages, this same thing is portrayed coming up in Rev. 13. Furthermore, it is destined and ordained to come in our day and time. Bear in mind this dragon is identically the same dragon portrayed through the Roman Empire as it began to rise when Christ was born in Bethlehem’s manger. It’s that same diabolical spirit of Satan all the way through. Same as the woman, Israel who passed through the MOON (LAW) AGE, but this woman has been in dispensation for over 1900 years, she has now returned to her land -been reinstated as a nation and AWAITS TO BE CLOTHED IN THE SUN during the millenium reign just ahead. Remember also this panoramic picture shows what Israel must face before being clothed in the sun, as this woman is a complete picture, (so is this dragon also a complete picture) and not simply a picture IN PART. We must understand as the one grows to a completion within the earth, so does the other, we realize the devil personally himself has no-need to grow, but that which he worked through took centuries to develop, to plot and fill his plan. Satan is allowed time to manipulate his ideas. His plot to gain the woman, will not only involve time but it shall incorporate many nations, and governments, many military and economic systems, ABOVE ALL IT WILL INCORPORATE RELIGION-a religious program that now has already began to portray itself for the end time.


You may be surprised to learn in the beginning of this vast empire- of Rome the great red dragon original-ly did not have 7 heads and 10 horns, when this Roman Empire first appeared on the scene and began its conquest. No it certainly did not in the beginning have 7 heads and 10 horns. The development of these came long after the empire had gone through a process of time. Several hundred years had passed when Constantine the Roman Emperor embraced so called Christianity causing it to be the head religion, and still through a further process of time Satan slowly began to entwine himself into this carnal religious church now recognized as the head state religion, building his own system and blending both church and state together within the empire. Through many political upheavals all of which led to the day that the empire could no longer maintain its own strength and continue to be the great empire that it had been for hundreds of years though it was still the same old Roman empire and the same Devil who continues on. Now the picture changes in leadership and the popes began to be the heads as the Devil pushes forward his aim for world dominion. But time has come for a vast change within the empire, no longer will it be one great world! empire, for time has come for the 10 horns to extend which are none other than 10 nations to spring forth from the broken up old empire. As it was time for the 7 heads and the 10 horns to appear on his head he drew from the heavens third part of the stars casting them to the earth where the dragon stood before THE WOMAN WHO WAS READY TO BE DELIVERED, to devour her child as soon as it was born. Lets watch this dragon momentarily and see what he is up to. Remember that which was seen in heaven was A COMPLETE PICTURE FOR ALL AGES, all these details were wrapped up in one scene which took an entire chapter to explain, yet to fulfill it in respect to time on earth would take centuries. Yes it took centuries and centuries for the earthly conditions to develop into the complete picture – seen in heaven so that which was happening on earth could match the Panoramic picture ! in heaven making it complete, is that Understood? Think of the picture in the heavens as a blue print in. Rev. 12 but the fulfillment of what the blue print showed takes place over a long process of time in the earth. Say you’re building a house according to a blue print, the . blue print is drawn up in one place while the house is built in another, only here the blue print is the revealed Word of God, but the world events, the nations involved are the EARTHLY MATERIAL used to match the drawn out blue print. Notice this dragon stood before the Woman Israel expecting to be delivered. Satan is fully aware the woman was ready to give birth to a son WHO WOULD RULE ALL NATIONS. Do you know who that son is? Of course you do, it is NOT MANIFESTED SONS who spring from a gentile church. It is none other than THE SON the Lord Jesus Christ. The heavenly vision (blue-print) revealed her giving birth to this man-child which is none other than a picture of Israel back in her home-land having returned from 70 years captivity in Babylon where after a period of many years the temple and city were rebuilt and stood in readiness for the coming of the Messiah. Israel is pictured standing in her home-land as the queen of nations when all of a sudden Christ is born to fulfill prophecy.Though, sad to say, Israel as a nation could not recognize him, BUT SATAN DID. Absolutely he recognized him and immediately began to seek means whereby he might destroy the manchild who one day would take his place. It had been he (Christ) who was appointed to rule all nations. What does Satan do? He wastes no time in approaching the leading religious theologians of the day, plotting and scheming to set things in motion to destroy the man-child. Not until after 31/2 years of Jesus’ ministry did the day finally arrive that Satan felt sure he had him. Do you remember which world empire ruled the world in that day? ROME OF COURSE. Which nation was being breathed down upon? Israel of course! Who was the key figure of the man-child was destined TO that day? None other than Jesus Christ, why was he? Because brothers and sisters he was born to be a ruler, Christ was born to be a deliverer, and as the devil got this thing under way, Christ was brought to trial. It is true Pilate, left his destiny in the hands of the Jewish nation who cried out the more when asked, “What shall I do with him, the Christ?” Their blood thirsty cry which arose from the multitude was Crucify him, crucify him and let his blood be upon us and our children.


Though it was the Jewish cry crucify him, their law would not permit crucifixation, then who actually hung him on the cross; who beat and mocked him, spitting upon • him and gambling for his clothes? Who placed a mock crown of sharp thorns upon his sacred brow and last of all wrote above his head Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews? It was none other than Rome, Rome was responsible for all this mistreatment to the Saviour. Notice the writing in Latin, Hebrew, and Greek, was not Jesus of Nazareth, Saviour of the world but KING OF THE JEWS. His hanging on the cross made him saviour of the world, but the writing over his head declared him King of the Jews. For Satan to have him hanging on a Roman cross gave him the assurance he would have no more trouble from this one, certainly it was Satan through the beastly world empire of Rome who stood with his mouth open to cast out a flood and devour that child.


What was this flood that proceeded from the mouth of the dragon to devour the child? It was none other than a flood of ridicule, false accusations and the other things that brought him to trial before the Roman governmental authorities. The Roman Soldiers in that day would be no different from soldiers in our day, they were merely fulfilling their obligations and duties, but the spirit behind all of this was none other than the old red dragon, SATAN THE DEVIL for he knew that in this manchild lay all those prophecies which had been spoken against him, furthermore he knew they were soon to be fulfilled and if he allowed him to get by, the day would come when he must forfeit his life and surrender all to the man-child, so there Satan stood embedded deep within the Roman empire ready to devour that child WHEN SUDDENLY SOMETHING HAPPENED. The woman who brought forth the manchild destined to RULE (future tense) all nations with a rod of iron, this can further be verified as to who the man-child was by Rev. 19 “And I saw heaven. Open, behold he sitteth on a white horse and the armies of heaven followed him, out of his mouth went a sharp two edged sword that he SHOULD SMITE THE NATIONS AND RULE THEM WITH A ROD OF IRON. Here the Eternal God has now brought forth the man-child destined to rule Israel, for that hour of deliverance had arrived, for the expectant with these prophecies of the word of God. Israel was the nation who knew in their proper time these prophecies would materialize and a king would be born. Notice he was destined to rule all nations, THIS DID NOT MEAN THE RULING HAD TO TAKE PLACE right then, for notice what happened-the woman’s child was caught up unto God and his throne, why does this take place?


As the word of prophecy had been born in the earth was to fulfill the prophecies that this nation bearing the man-child is to fulfill his appointed Messianic kingship, yet in the mind of God he had a two-fold purpose for this child, (1) He was to be saviour and (2) he was to be a deliverer not only for the Jew but for the gentile as well, and time must be alloted to fulfill the second part, for this, God allotted’ the grace dispensation to the gentiles. It was in the mind of God that the man-child would give his life and it was Satan’s aim to destroy him in order that he could not be king. God simply used Satan to fulfill his own purpose. Grid’s aim was to give his only begotten son, the kingship that had been purchased through his shed-blood. His blood would be given for an atonement. Here we see God using Satan to work out his own plan. For Satan’s angle was to get rid of him that the kingship might not materialize. In him lay all the authority to be king over all the earth. Satan felt . by destroying this child all would be ‘ lost, but all was not lost, from God’s stand-point he only used Satan to project his own purpose, that whosoever believeth on the son might not perish but have everlasting life. As the son forfeited his life the devil thought he was rid of him, only to see shortly afterward the keys of death and hell wrestle from him by the very one he had killed and Christ led captivity captive from paradise giving gifts unto men (Eph. 4). He is now caught up unto God with all the old testament saints which he brought out from paradise. CHRIST ENTERS INTO A NEW OFFICE AT THE THRONE, a priest-hood office where he maketh intercession for all the people of the earth who were to be saved and thanks be to God, the mainly was us Gentiles. Think of it, God offered first his divine plan of grace to the Jews, giving them every opportunity to accept the blessing you and I have so marvelously enjoyed in Christ these 1900 years. The nation of Israel was blinded to what God offered them as they could only see in the scriptures a king coming to Israel ushering in the kingdom Age. Because of this they were entirely unable to recognize that time has come in God’s program for a grace age and not a kingdom age. Writing to the Ephesian and Colossian church Paul said God had made him to understand the mystery of his will (the mystery age that lay between the law age and the kingdom age to bring in the gentiles was the grace age or church age, in order that God might make them also to become heirs of his marvelous gift of life. That Grace which was extended to the human race through Jesus Christ on Calvary’s cross. That which Satan had sought to destroy merely opened up a new age in God’s program, sending Christ who was born ON THE EARTH INTO THE HEAVENS to hold a high priestly office interceding for all the gentiles who believed on him. The poor Jew was shut out of this blessing because all he coma see from the old testament scriptures was a kingdom dispensation. Remember how even Christ’s own disciples when spoken to of the promise of the father said “LORD IS THIS THE TIME YOU WILL RESTORE THE KINGDOM TO ISRAEL?” Acts 1:7″? Showing his own chosen disciples still had this more on mind than anything else. We gentiles cannot understand this since we see grace spoken of in the law dispensation but for every verse you find in the old testament concerning a dispensation of grace you will find 3 verses speaking of the kingdom age. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE WOMAN WHO GAVE BIRTH TO THE MANCHILD? When Israel rejected the man-child as saviour, though one day she will accept him as king, God simply reached over and turned off the nation from his blessings the same as you would shut-off a stop-watch, though he will not cease watching over Israel while Christ for over 1900 years has been in the heavens interceding for Gentile believers or all who would call upon his name. THE JEWS MUST NOW GO INTO DISPERSION throughout all the gentile countries. There they shall be punished in order to fullfill their blood-thirsty cry, crucify him, crucify him and let his blood be upon us and our children. When Israel went into Babylonian captivity because of her disobedience she remained there 70 years. She had only blasphemed God’s Sabbaths failing to allow the land to rest but here the charge is much grater than when in the Babylonian captivity for now they have counted the holy blood of God in his son as a shameful thing and hath done despite unto the grace of Cod in judging themselves unworthily in not needing what God had offered, declaring he should be crucified and if by any chance there was any guilt of his blood let it be upon them (that generation) and their children (the following generations). So tor 1900 years while the gentiles have been enjoying the marvelous grace of God the poor Jewish people have entered in to dispersion for punishment. REV. 12: verses 5 & 6 Verses 5 & 6 deals with a time that Christ is interceding in his high priestly office for the grace age. Since the woman does not share in any of the grace blessing until barely before the close of the age, what happens unto her? Bear in mind Israel is God’s clock and time-piece and through-out the grace dispensation God’s clock has been stopped as far as his prophetic program for Israel is concerned. Remember Daniel learned that there had been 70 prophetical weeks determined upon his people. 69 of those prophetical weeks have been completed. Between the end of the 69th week and the 70th week lies the dispensation age of Grace. For the Jew, the clock will not begin to run again until that part of the prophetic week for Israel resumes at the closing of the gentile dispensation. ACCORDING TO GOD’S PROPHETIC TIME ISRAEL IS THE ONLY NATION WHO HAS A GOD-GIVEN CALENDAR WHICH COULD BE USED IN MEASURING PROPHETIC TIME. Our calendar as you are well aware is not a Hebrew calendar but a (Gregorian calendar) which consist of 365 days in a year, God’s calendar given to Israel is 360. Our calendar is Pegan dating back into the dark ages of originality. I only stressed this point to show when God cut this woman off ushering in the grace age, HE STOPPED HIS CLOCK, while Israel was in dispersion God stopped all prophecies. Watch now verses 5 & 6, as the man child is caught up unto God and his throne for a purpose, that purpose has lasted over 1900 years, but soon that purpose will have reached it’s ultimation and time will begin to flow once again for the Israelite nation who had been in dispersion IS NOW BACK IN HER HOME-LAND READY AND WAITING FOR THE KING OF GLORY WHO IS SOON TO COME TO HER. But before that happy day arrives the spiritual woman Israel will flee to the wilderness where in verses 7 there was a place prepared for her by God that she should BE FED 1260 DAYS. This verse is fulfilled NOT at the time the child is taken up into heaven, but well over 1900 years after she has been dispersed from her land and permitted by God to return and be in preparation for the coming of the king. Note this will only happen after she has made a covenant with the antichrist who for some reason shall break his covenant and pursue after Israel to annihilate her from the face of the earth, (Dan. 9:27) at which time the foolish gentile virgins of Matt. 25 shall also suffer extremely for their being foolish and not being prepared for the coming of Christ when he came to receive the bride unto himself. These being days the scripture refers to as days of GREAT TRIBULATION. (Matt. 24:22) During that period will verses 7 thru the end of the chapter for a short duration of 31/2 bloody years be fulfilled. This is the time when God will have the spiritual woman Israel A PLACE PREPARED that he may feed and nourish her for these 1203 SCORE DAYS while the anti-christ seeks to destroy her.


Between verses 5 & 6 lays the gentile church age period. I hope you can see it. What happened to the woman after the man-child was killed would take volumes, for her history would run from the disper-sion of the Jews at Jerusalem with the seige of Titus against the holy city in 70 a.d. to 1948 when Israel became a recognized nation by the U.S. until this present hour. While God’s Jewish time-piece stood still, let us briefly EXAMINE HER DISPERSED HISTORY AMONG THE GENTILES. Israel as we know was dispersed for almost 1900 years before being allowed to re-enter their land and prepare fo. the coming of the Messiah. Upon the Israelites rejecting Christ during his first coming he made a prophecy unto his disciples saying that Jerusalem would be trodden down by the gentiles until the gentile dispensation was fulfilled, at which time Christ said, Jerusalem would no longer be trodden down by the gentiles, But the people would be led away captive by the edge of the sword until this time and remain so until this time be fulfilled. ISRAEL’S 6-DAY WAR IN JUNE 1967 FREED THE CITY OF THE GREAT KING FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE 70 A.D. FROM GENTILE POWER TRODDING IT DOWN. Israel wrestled Jerusalem from the Jordanian government, (Hussein’s government) in June of 1967. Providing no other gentile power conquers Jerusalem ever again this could very well have ended the prophecy of Christ to his disciples, Luke 21:20. SINCE 70 A.D. JERUSALEM HAS CON-TINUALLY BEEN TRODDEN DOWN BY ONE GENTILE POW-ER AFTER ANOTHER. Note, Christ did not say Samaria, Bethlehem, Caesarea, Phillipi nor any other place of Israel, ONLY JERUSALEM. His prophecy centered only around a four-mile territory in his day called Jerusalem. As to what happened to the woman, our story of her dispersion into gentile territories and under gentile rulership begins in 70 a.d. as Titus beseiged the holy city, burning it to the ground, leaving a million Jews dead. While human blood flowed down Jerusalem streets, the remaining Jews were led away captive unto all nations where they remain until the gentile dispensation be fulfilled. Did June 1967 fulfill the gentile dispensa-tion? One thing is certain, FOR THE FIRST TIME IN OVER 1900 YEARS JERUSALEM IS TOTAL-LY IN THE HANDS OF THE JEWS. NOTE: SEE TITUS’ DEFEAT OF JERUSALEM at end of this message.
King Hussein of Jordan was the last gentile power over the city. No doubt soon God will start his prophetic time-piece again and finish his program for Israel and the world, fulfilling Jacob’s 70th week, Daniel 12 and Rev. 12. How did the woman fair as she was dispersed among the gentiles? It is a known fact that no people has ever suffered in the last 1900 years as has the Jew who was a stranger in another land. No way could she know the rich spiritual blessings of God for she was forbidden to return to Jerusalem after 75 a.d. unto her home-land, only could she watch in anguish the many gentile powers toss her beloved city to and fro. Gentile blood runs deep over the areas of Jerusalem as one gentile power after another wrestled the holy city from the hands of some other gentile power. Volumes could be written on this alone, but as to the woman who was not allowed to return to her land everyone knows that God’s blessings upon the Jew only rests upon them when they are in their God-given land. Through the centuries they have fallen into the hands of some terrible gentile rulers, being blamed for every disastrous event to ever come upon the world. All because they cast their vote against the man child in voting for his crucifixation. In and around the 12th and 13th century came the black plague upon Europe where millions died because of the unexplainable sickness and before the cause was discovered in many circles it was blamed upon the Jews. Other things pertaining to this nation could be recorded. Had God not watched over this people there I would never have been enough to re-establish Israel and Jerusalem when the time did come for them to return home. Through out the centuries Satan has sought every means by which to destroy the Jew in attempting to hinder their fulfillment of prophecy in days to come. Perhaps no other period in history could be compared with World War 11 when Hitler and Eichman begin such a terrible reign of terror upon this race. When, at last, they were finally released from concentration camps in Europe, the dead count of the slaughtered, butchered, and massacred Jewish people numbered over 6,000,000, while yet untold thousands had rotted away unto almost a hopeless corpse before the Allied armies could free them from concentration camps in 1945, but FREEDOM FROM CONCENTRATION CAMPS HAD COME TOO LATE FOR 6,000,000 JEWISH PEOPLE. Yes, many gentile powers have mistreated the Jew unmerciful. How many yet does communistic Russia still hold, refusing them freedom? OVER 3,000,000! When Hitler crushed Poland, he found over 6,000,000 people he could make slaves while 31/2 million were his deadliest enemy THE JEW who he had vowed to annihilate from the face of the earth. It is strange that each major World War which involved gentile powers involved Israel as well. During the close of World War 1, Great Britian wrestled from the hands of the Turks, WITHOUT FIRING A SINGLE SHOT, the Holy City. Great Britain then sensing the need of the Jewish people for a home-land, prepared a small section of less than 9,000 miles, which, under their supervision, opened up a part of the Holy-land for a home for the wayward Jews. For 1900 years the Jew was well embedded in the gentile society and had obtained much of the wealth of the world, so he cared nothing about returning to a land and scratching a place in the dirt even though he knew it was his own home-land. So, he merely settled back to enjoy the gentile powers of wealth for another 20 years. In the meantime, a tiny segment of the Jewish race did return home. Though they battled with their Arab half-brothers, they would still rather do this than be in gentile hands of whom they looked upon as dogs, but after Hitler’s bloody purge and after the release from the concentration camps where thousands upon thousands more waited death. The Jew did not need to be encouraged to go home. We could never survive under something like this again. By the thousands they streamed across Europe to Israel, even faster than Britain could receive refugees back into his own home land. England was only accepting a few thousand refugees a month, but they came by every conceivable means until even an under-ground in Israel was organized to receive them at the cost of being displeasing under Great Britain. The island of Cyprus became the place where the thousands and thousands of Jewish refugees were herded by the British soldiers. The migration of the Israelite people steadily poured into Israel and today there are 21/2 million—they fly their own flag, have their own government. Their army recently astounded the world in a 6-day war. Just 3 years after World War 11, in 1948 Britain declared the Jewish People of Israel to be a separate and independent nation. In her past 20 year history Israel has fought 3 bloody wars with the Arabs, but it was not until 1967 that the entire city of Jerusalem was wrestled from the hands of gentile power, NO DOUBT TO FULFILL LUKE 17:21. Today at the closing of 1969, Israel is on the verge of plunging the great gentile powers of the world into the worst war ever to be recorded in history. (Note) World War I suffered the loss of 14,000,000 men, World War II suffered the loss of 60,000,000 lives on both fronts, but the war that the gentile powers are search-ing ways to avoid will cause the blood to run to the horse’s bridle as 200,000,000 men die. Yes every major world war in some way has involved the little nation of Israel in it.

Rev. 12:9, “AND THE GREAT DRAGON WAS CAST OUT THAT OLD SERPENT CALLED THE DEVIL AND SATAN WHO DECEIVED THE WHOLE WORLD; HE WAS CAST OUT INTO THE EARTH AND ANGELS WERE CAST OUT WITH HIM. Here we read about what God allows Satan to do at the closing hours of time. This is not a war-fare that could be seen with the naked eye in the heavens unless God would permit you to see through the eyes of the spirit what was transpiring. Though by what we of the natural surroundings and happenings upon the earth would make one believe truly somewhere there was a spiritual warfare in progress. Yes this is a spiritual war-fare. Verse 7 identified the timing of it. Since Israel has returned to her homeland and became a recognized nation in 1948. Now God in these hours has purposed to regather Israel from all nations, re-establishing her back into the home-land. In verse 7 the angel told John that Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, it has already been established that the dragon is none other than Satan portrayed in the heavens in all his embodiment of world power, (political and religious). Yet when you bring it down to earth it incorporates nations and kingdoms, economical, religions and military powers. It takes all this to make up Satan’s combined system which he has incarnated himself into its fullness. It portrays Satan, the devil, who will go about all of his expression of authority as a dragon would show his power. God’s word here declares that this final picture is none other than Satan’s last opportunity in allowing himself to be expressed in all his power and authority in any earthly system this side of the millenium. The major purpose of God here is to permit Satan to rise against Israel. In doing so this will complete Israel’s last chapter of chastisement. When this happens, Israel must be back in her homeland.


Reading from Jer. 30; we discover that God regathers the children of Israel back into the homeland in THAT HOUR (meaning when this beastly system rises up which is none other than Satan in his combined world powers) causing Israel once again to travail in pain as a woman about to give birth. Why is it portrayed in such manner? Because as Israel goes into her darkest hour under the anti-christ reign it shall be none other than Satan through his anti-christ system applying pressure on Israel causing her to travail and give birth to the second advent of Christ. Remember, before the man-child was born, later to be caught up unto God and his throne was none other than Israel giving birth to that first Advent. When Israel is brought back once again into the land just prior to the close of the age, she is again to go through birth pains for the second coming of the man-child who shall rule all nations with a rod of iron. (Rev. 19:15) THIS TRAVAIL OF BIRTH CAN ONLY BE ACCOMPLISHED IN ONE PLACE—HER HOME-LAND. This completed picture portrayed in the heavens is only the reflection of the long time happenings and events in the earth. As Satan is allowed to muster together all this under his influence, it will take time to fulfill itself down here on earth. As this bloodless battle takes place in the heavens Satan is seen losing it.


Next, Satan, is cast into the earth and is allowed in all his fury to incarnate himself into every God-less political system under the sun to form his one-world government. This my friends is why every government on the face of the earth has reached its end. That’s why today every economical system is facing bankruptcy. A short time ago I read in the newspaper where one of our economical men from the University of Indiana was saying it is necessary to try to develop some new means in attempting to curb the economic illness within our own country, yet the word of God shows they will never cure the economical set-up which is going on in the world today. This thing is definitely headed for a crash, a climax, when Satan will take everything over. Satan’s main objective is that he will be allowed to come against Israel with all this new combined power which he is allowed to muster together. This is the reason why we see everything in the world today heading toward one-world government, one-world army, one-world church, one-world money-all this under the leadership of one man. Who is this one-man? None other than the Pope of Rome, supposing to be the vicar or representative of Christ upon the earth—who, shameful to say, knows no more about the true plan of salvation than a you-know what. It’s nothing but strictly a political minded scheme, a conniving religious system that sits in Rome exactly in the same position of authority as did that of the ancient Caesars in days gone by before Rome toppled. The Caesars demanded worship, and the pope office is no different. The Caesars of Rome demanded that you bow at their feet. If you be one of the subjects of Rome today, you are still required to bow and kiss the pope’s feet and yet he pretends to be the vicar of Jesus Christ, the representative of Christ on earth. Never once did Christ require anyone to bow and kiss his feet, yet one day while he was eating, a tear filled ill-famed woman came and bathed his feet with her tears, wiped them with the hairs of her head and anointed his feet with precious ointment. But never once did he ask anyone to do it. They carry the pope on a manmade shift, while Christ walked or rode a donkey wherever he went. On the head of the pope they place a diamond-studded crown, but the only crown Jesus ever wore was one made of thorns. They used trained Swiss guards with swords to stand at his gates but Jesus said to his disciples, “Put up your swords, are you not aware I could call 12 legions of angels?” We now witness this thing being set in motion in a day where Satan is allowed to incorporate himself into all of this in the generation in which you and I live. True, we do not see the heavenly war-fare, but if you will keep your eyes open and watch things on the earth you can very well summarize and come to the conclusion what time it is. As things are now progressing up there it will be revealed through certain events down here. When the scriptures said Satan is pushed out of heaven that does not mean that all of a sudden he comes tumbling down to the earth, but as Michael wins the final victory, Satan is being slowly pushed down here to carry on all his diabolical plans. Then we hear a voice crying, “Woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth for Satan is come down into thee having great • wrath and power for he knows that he has but a short time.” And I heard with a loud voice, saying in heaven, “Now is come salvation and strength and the kingdom of our God and the power of his Christ, for the accuser of our brethren is cast down who accused them before God day and night.”


When will Satan be allowed to fulfill this against the woman Israel? None other than during the dark tribulation period and remember, IN THAT PERIOD THE BRIDE OF CHRIST IS NOT HERE, so those being accused by Satan on this earth could not be the Bride of Christ. This verse refers to the accused brethern, the Jews, and incorporated in this naturally, are the foolish virgins, who have now become a very serious minded people. It is dealing with those who still hold to the testimony of Jesus Christ that he and he alone is the Saviour of their souls, unto that Orthodox Jew they will still be holding to the word of God which is the old Mosaic Law. Our following verses plainly reveal that during this dark hour there will be only two kinds of true believers in God left on the earth. 1-the true Jew, 2-the gentile foolish virgin. This should not confuse anyone, it is true-you will have all kinds of people in the world, UNBELIEVERS, and MAKE-BELIEVERS but many of these individuals who we now refer to as make-believers are going to suddenly wake up to this false Babylonian church whose leadership they will definitely be under. This anti-christ will literally persecute that foolish virgin as well as the true Jew under the power of the papacy during that dark period. WHAT ABOUT. THAT UNBELIEVER? He is just a man of the world, who is better off than the make believer because the word of God plainly teaches any man or woman who bows to this deadly system, receiving a mark in their hand or their forehead during that hour would never be forgiven. Rev. 14:9-11. We know from Bro. Branham’s teaching that basically to receive this mark in the hand or forehead is TO RECEIVE THEIR DOCTRINE and turning yourself over to Satan where you will believe a lie and be damned (11 Thess. 2:11). By the fact of the mark being in your hand you show fellowship with those systems, nevertheless, during that dark hour the Image (World Church) will make a decree throughout the world that no man buys or sells except he wear the mark of identification to the beast. This will mean you have personally identified yourself with the “beasts.” Thank God the bride will not be here during that dark hour, although we do see signs within the •earth that this is rapidly rising more and more as Satan is allowed leave way to press himself into this system. God is giving us plenty of signs within his word that we may know of its nearness and rush hurriedly into the name of the Lord which is a strong tower to be safe before that terrible hour overtakes the world. Already Satan is being allowed to press himself into this period of time, watch Rev. verse 11, there is something going to be done.


Notice carefully who is to be the over corner in that hour—not the bride, she is already gone, Satan will be here in his beastly system, the bride will be translated into glory, that is why God is now giving his little bride an opportunity to become a true believer—a word believer—through the preaching of the revealed word. Only these kinds of believers will be at the marriage supper, from this generation. As we see God preparing to clean up his bride and make herself ready to go, we also witness the devil coming closer and closer preparing to usher in this dark period when the bride leaves. By this time Satan will have this well under control for Paul said in 11 Thess. 2; that day shall not come until there shall come first a falling away and the man of sin be revealed. To say one day you won’t know who he is, while the following day you will know exactly who he is, IS NOT THE MEANING—HIS REVELATION also is a gradual period of time coming into full maturity.


Already we know what the spirit of the anti-Christ is. It’s the false church under the leadership of the pope. The fact Paul taught in Thess. concerning the revealing of the man of sin means there will come a definite hour when Satan will take over the full reigns of all this. (Hour here does not mean 60 min. It could mean 6 months where everything in the world will work out their problems.) Finally one day the scripture teachs they will all turn their authority over to this one agent. That’s why today world leaders are beginning to look more and more to the pope as an ambassador of peace, or one to stabilize the peace. IT IS THAT THE SPIRIT OF SATAN IS ALREADY HERE GRADUALLY TAKING OVER LITTLE BY LITTLE, at the same time the cloak is being taken off things and we see his revelation coming more and more into focus. Yes, it’s enough to make you run into the arms of the Lord Jesus to be ready to leave when he comes for his bride. For the Bride of Christ will not be here when the anti-christ comes into full power and full authority. Coming into this power will be Satan literally incarnating himself into this papal office. By this I do not mean to infer the man is Pope Paul, Paul could die, it could be the next man, but THIS IS THE OFFICE. We must admit that Pope John did set things in motion toward this end. Something that had not been accomplished for hundred and hundreds of years before. Truly he was the prophet of this ecumenical drive while Pope Paul who bore the name of the apostle Paul, picked up where John left off. The newspap-ers portrayed a picture of Pope Paul in all of his fancy dress carrying a huge book on his shoulder, IT WAS A BOOK OF OLD DOGMAS and behind the man in the picture was a great explosion—this represented the Roman Catholic church reeling and rocking. In spite of world systems he is the agent, the head of it who is going to make some drastic changes to temper things down. Always this has been the tactic of the catholic church playing both ends against the middle. I’m not seeking to pick a personal fight with any catholic anymore than with the Methodists or Baptists or anyone who has sold out and has gone Satan’s way. The spirit of Satan is now being pressed into the earth, BECAUSE HE IS LOSING HIS BATTLE IN THE HEAVENS. Shortly he will make a complete take-over in all far-eastern countries, where little Israel is striving to exist. n In that hour when Satan, through his systems especially his false church and his man of sin, will take over completely the reigns of world governments. During this short period of time YOU who are left had really better have something to hang on to. Because if you ever confess that the blood of Jesus Christ was the means where-by your sins were cleansed and you will not bow down to this one world church system, then brother look out! Mainly two classes of people during that hour will be the major target for the devil’s onslaught.


Read further, and THEY OVER-CAME HIM, (Who? The Jew and the foolish virgin) for at the hour according to Matt. 25; when Jesus appeared for his bride, the foolish had no oil, and were left on the earth to be plunged into this dark tribulation period. When Christ said to the foolish virgin, “1 know you not,” he was saying he did not know them intimately for to know them intimately they would need to have had the same spirit as he within their lives which was the oil in the vessel—THE FOOLISH VIRGIN DID NOT HAVE OIL though they were a clean pure virgin of the word-it was the blood of Jesus Christ that had made them what they were. Therefore they were still God’s people who could not go in the bride, BUT WOULD DEFINITELY SERVE ANOTHER PURPOSE. Truly they thought they were bride material, but they’re left here to face the terrible beastly system along with the poor orthodox Jew who is cast into that dark hour of tribulation.


Why does Satan arise in all of his fury suddenly turning against Israel? Why is a covenant made with her and then broken? The devil is fully aware of what is written in the word. Satan has always been against Israel. He knows the hour is getting close for the man-child who was caught up unto God’s throne, now serving in a high priestly office for Gentile believers, is SOON TO RETURN AND SET UP HIS KINGDOM. Already unsuccessful-ly, Satan has attempted to use the Arab nations to hinder this purpose from being fulfilled. Satan, at all cost, must destroy that nation in an attempt to stop that man-child from returning and setting up a kingdom where all nations would go to Zion in Jerusalem to worship God. Satan, in that short hour of Prophetic time, has a plan whereby he combines all the world systems and turns them against the woman who has previously borne the man-child. To get at this woman for his last time Satan sends a flood out of his mouth-what is this flood? It is A FLOOD OF DIRE PERSECUTION OF EXTREME HATRED AGAINST THE JEWISH RACE. This is to exterminate all Israel exactly as Old Nasser and the Arab states declared they would do in June 1967. “We are going to drive Israel into the sea,” boasted Nasser, and in one spot Israel would have only had to be driven 10 miles to be in the Mediterranean. Nasser’s aim and purpose under Satan’s guidance was to utterly destroy Israel, but in only 6 days Israel had paralyzed the Arab ordinance—Turning the table on Nasser and almost taking away all of his territory. In 6 days Israel’s tiny boundaries leaped from 9000 sq. miles to over 39,000. What is wrong with the Arabs today? They are so terribly embarrassed at the stinging defeat they suffered at the hand of the little nation of only million, while their combined forces were 100,000,000. Today the Arabs are squabbling for Israel to return their territories. I have my doubts that as close as it is to the coming of the Lord, Israel will never give up this territory. It must be kept to fulfill the land covenant of God to Abraham.


This shows your two groups of believers left on the earth during that hour who overcome the beast. These loved not their lives above their death. The blood of the lamb represents the gentile foolish virgin believer who had been left, yet still clinging to the testimony that salvation is by the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Notice who these others are. And by the word of their testimony—this takes you back to the testimony of those souls that were under the altar under the 5th seal, THESE UNDER THE ALTAR IN THE 5TH SEAL WERE JEWS and notice what was said of them after white robes had been given unto them—not because they testified to the blood of Jesus Christ, but because of the testimony they held which was the word of God, the law of Moses, THOSE UNDER THE ALTAR WERE INSTRUCT-ED TO BE PATIENT A LITTLE LONGER UNTIL THEIR BRETHERN WERE KILLED. This could be no other than the Jewish people who loved not their lives unto death, showing this is that terrible dark hour when the beastly system rose up against Israel with one-sole purpose in mind, to exterminate her but not only will it be against the woman Israel, but throughout the gentile world there will be those believing christians who could not qualify for the Bride of Christ who will not bow to the dictates of the world anti-christ system. Then shall come that great wave of persecution fed into the world’s slaughter pens where the earth will be filled with the blood of martyrs.

1. This slaughter shall make Hitler’s persecution against the Jew look like child’s play when the anti-christ rises against those who still held the testimony of the blood of Jesus Christ and 2. those who held to the word of their testimonies, (Jew) (Mosaic Law), There-fore rejoice ye heavens and ye that dwell in them but woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth and of the sea FOR THE DEVIL HAS COME DOWN UNTO YOU HAVING GREAT WRATH KNOWING HIS TIME IS SHORT. We notice in verse 13 when the devil came down no doubt he is panicky when he is fully aware he was cast upon the earth and he persecuted the woman who brought forth the man-child. The woman was none other than Israel who in days gone by had become expectant through prophecy which is none other than the seed word of God. With all this fresh in Satan’s mind, he knows that at all cost he must destroy the woman and prevent the man-child’s purpose to be fulfilled. Notice when the dragon saw that he was cast upon the earth, knowing the shortness of time, HE PERSECUTED THE WOMAN, and to the woman was given the two wings of an eagle that she might fly into the wilderness. (Rev. 12:14)

In Rev. II, we read two prophets are to be sent to Israel, these are the two anointed ones, who shall do great wonders and signs in Israel. What are these great wonders and signs for? To vindicate their prophecies, they’ll not preach a gospel like you and I have been privileged to hear for almost 2000 years, but they will literally prophesy to the Jewish nation. Their prophecies will be none other than the thoughts of God flowing down through these two prophets unto A SELECTED GROUP OF JEWISH PEOPLE who Jehovah God has selected to represent WITHIN this prophetic picture of the woman in Rev. 12. Do not get my following statement confused with the woman (herself) portrayed in Rev. 12.

WHO ARE THE 144,000

This woman must never be confused with the 144,000 Jews coming from all tribes pictured in Rev. 7 and 14. True THIS 144,000 IS A PART OF THAT WOMAN, BUT IS NOT ALL THAT GO TO MAKE UP THAT WOMAN, for notice in Rev. 7 and 14 it clearly states that this 144,000 are Jewish men who are referred to as servants (within the woman). These are sealed with the knowledge of who the Messiah is, (Lord Jesus Christ). The 144,000 are THE CHOSEN SERVANTS OF GOD TO PREACH THE EVER-LASTING GOSPEL DURING THE TRIBULATION PERIOD, it is through their preaching that warns the people to get away from this diabolic system with which their nation HAS ALREADY SIGNED A COVENANT, “get away from this thing, have no part of this, it is not of God,” this will be their message—not a message of the good news that was preached in the world before the rapture of the bride of Christ. It will be many of these foolish virgins and the 144,000 Jews, who cry out and are persecuted heavily for their testimony. Reading all 3 phrases of their message, it is shown their one message is a warning to get away from that diabolical system with which their Country has signed an agreement. WHATEVER YOU DO DON’T BOW TO THAT THING! Because of their testimonies, many people in the world will not bow before this Satanic system. Some people have thought this 144,000 Jews from all tribes is just something to be suddenly sealed away with the seal of God placed upon them until the millenium reign. This could not be true. It is true that these 144,000 will be sealed and they shall be in the millenium, but remember THEY ARE MEN. How could God repopulate the Jews in the millenium with men only? Can you answer that? So therefore the woman signified in the Rev. 12 is under another classification of Jew. In Rev. 12 these are Jews, BOTH MEN AND WOMAN BOYS AND GIRLS ALIKE, WHO SHALL BE SCATTERED THE WORLD OVER. God’s dealing with this woman in Rev. 12 is exclusively for one . purpose only. That is to preserve a posterity seed of the Nation of Israel to be planted for the Millenium. Don’t ask me how many there are going to be—only God knows. But the purpose of God is that he might preserve this woman otherwise when he sent his own wrath through Jesus Christ with his bride, the woman would have been literally liquidated from off the face of the earth. Then how could Jesus Christ be king of all nations? . Each time I study history about a king my mind goes back to a man who either wears a sword or a crown on his head or one who holds a sceptre in his hand. He’s not standing out there putting on a show, but, he is ruling over his subjects. Rev. 19 plainly states when heaven was opened Jesus was seen on a white horse who, along with his bride, was coming to this earth riding white horses. All who rode horses had glorified bodies. Why was he coming back to this earth? He was coming to smite the earth with the wrath and authority of God invested in him, in his kingship, for HE is the man-child. Why is he coming to earth? Israel is on earth in hard travail as a woman travailing to give birth. Israel is in travail to bear the second advent of the coming of the Lord. The anti-christ spirit incorporated in this system will be trying their utmost to liquidate these Jews, who have heard the two prophets God sent to the earth before the starting hours of that 3 1/2 years of Great Tribulation. As they prophecies the true Jews listened intently to their testimony and their obedience the listening to the words of these two eagles of God who are prophets is what saved them. EAGLES ARE ALWAYS REFERRED TO AS PROPHETS. Verse 14 states the woman was given two wings of an eagle, what could this mean? Symbolically, it is the prophecy of these two prophets, Elijah and Moses, who had been sent to warn the Jews what to do in this dark hour of tribulation. Satan’s last attempt to destroy the nation that the man-child would be scheduled to return and reign over. Their message delivered to true Israel was for the preservation of that nation as it has been stated. There. could easily be over 17,000,000 Jews around the world in that hour. According to Zachariah as many as 75% could be liquidated while 25% would be left for prophetic seed for the new age. These to be protected and sheltered through the message of these two prophets can only be those who truly love God, the rest would be slaughtered when the devil rises to spew out the flood of extreme hatred against the Jews during his final attempt to get rid of the woman.


V-16 It is said the earth opens up her mouth and swallows the flood. What could this symbolize? It means simply that many people of the world out of the bowels of their compassion had sympathy and will open their homes just as it has been in ages past. Some people have wanted to signify the earth opens up and swallowing the flood, probably was an earthquake where there would appear a great crack in the earth and drank in all the water. First, 1 say this flood is not literally water, IT IS A FLOOD OF EXCESSIVE HATRED AGAINST GOD’S CHOSEN PEOPLE. The meaning here is God causes certain elements (people) of the earth to open up their homes for hiding to shelter those fleeing from the anti-christ. People of the earth will open up in sympathy toward these Jews and they will accept them and shelter them for a period of 31/2 years. This shall be the fulfillment of Matt. 25:32-46. Let me to ask one simple question. If this woman is going to be given two wings of an eagle to fly away into the wilderness where she will be nurtured for the space of a 1203 score days HOW LONG WILL SHE ACTUALLY BE GONE? 3 1/2 years. That’s the exact length of Israel’s great tribulation. My question-When does Israel hear her two prophets?


Danial’s 70th week which Israel must enter into before the end of all things HAS NOT YET STARTED. Out of the middle of the 70th week comes a broken covenant with the antichrist prior to the last 31/2 years. Dan. 7:27, Teaches the antichrist made a covenant with Israel for one week or 7 years. In the midst of that 7 years or one week the antichrist breaks his covenant with Israel. Now her great tribulation will begin which is her last 31/2 years of the week. In the middle of this prophetic week, according to Dan. 9:27, the anti-christ shall cause to cease the evening oblation and for the over spreading of abomination (which means excessive hatred against the Jew) he shall make it desolate even until the consummation and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate (the worst 31/2 years of Israels 70th and last week is then under way). This 31/2 year period is the Great Tribulation and is called Jacobs trouble in Jer. 30:8. If you are interested in bible shows you what a prophetic week is, study together Gen. 29:20 and 27, also Gen. 31:41. Now my question is since the woman in Rev. 12 is given two wings of an eagle (the two prophets message) to fly away into the wilderness for her last 31/2 years where she shall be nurtured for 31/2 years (which is the great tribulation period which she spends running for her life.) When did these two prophets come to Israel,, if there is only 31/2 years left to begin with of that prophetic week? There was no other time they could have come but before the broken covenant which according to scriptures had been made for one week or 7 years. PROPHETS PROPHESY 31/2 YEARS ; Before according to Rev. 11:3 these two prophets prophesy 1203 score days (31/2 years) before they are ‘ killed. Some where in the beginning of that seven years, or last prophetical week period was the hour of their prophesy. Remember also according to Rev. 12, Israels days of persecution by the beast was 31/2 years and that is during THE LAST HALF OF THE PROPHETIC WEEK. This is definitely not the same 31/2 year Period. According to some who teach it was Jesus who was broken off in the middle of the last week leaving Israel only 31/2 years left to be fulfilled. That would be placing the coming of the two prophets BEFORE THE DEATH OF JESUS CHRIST. This is impossible for she was in the desert her last 31/2 years running for her life.


When does Israel hear her two prophets who warns them what they must do during their last 31/2 years in the wilderness, and cries out against the nation of Israel for having made a covenant for one week with the anti-christ or would you be naive enough to believe that these two prophets spent the last 31/2 years chasing Israel down, chasing down also the 144,000 in order to give them their God sent message knowing what to do during the last 31/2 years they spend running for their life. It cannot be, your timing would be badly off. The scripture teaches in Rev. 11, that the two prophets came on the scene prophesied and smote the earth with plagues of all kinds. They did all this for what purpose? To awaken the Jewish nation to the fact that their Messiah the king is coming soon, but that he will not come until the tribulation hour has fully drawn to a close. They must arrive on the scene to warn these true Jews of that system they have already signed the Covenant with and how to prepare to escape during that last hour which they must endure. I can see these two Jews, these two prophets with the Moses and Elijah spirit upon them as they stand in the streets of Jerusalem and prophesy. These old long-haired orthodox Jews with his pigtails wagging back and forth will NOD YES to their message, but some of those modern-ist Jews have no more conviction than some people in the United States have, but when that true Jew will say yes, deep down in his heart he has been sealed away. His only means of escape from that dirty devil who has incorporat-ed himself into this system when Satan tries to reach over and destroy that Jewish Nation will be the message already delivered by these two prophets. THIS IS THE HOUR KNOWN AS JACOB’S TROUBLE. The anti-christ will then break the covenant with the Jewish nation. This was never a covenant of Grace. I can see him reach over and take her sacrifice away after her temple is erected. Brother, when he takes that sacrifice away from her I can see those true Jews doing exactly like the devout Jews did during the days of Josephus when the Roman General came to the gates. Many will say as they grab their swords, here we die! But on the other hand, that Jew who listened to the two prophets will look at each other and say this is our sign, WE’RE GETTING OUT OF HERE. Just as Jesus instructed his disciples that day, when you see Jerusalem compassed with great armies then let him which be in Judea get out of here, and get to the mountains, (Luke-21:21) let him which is upon the house-top not come down and try to pack his house belongings away for these be the days of “great tribulation”. This was partly fulfilled under General Titus in 70 A.D., marching against Jerusalem—a type of this last day event. When the anti-christ brings his armies against Jerusalem to set forth this death struggle, 1 can just see these true Jews which is portrayed as this true woman in Rev. 12 having already heard the two prophets say, NOW IS THE TIME. Brother, that is just like some of these gentile believers who have heard the message that Brother William Branham delivered if they don’t get out of these Babylonian systems they are going to be here when the bride is gone and many of them are going to be foolish virgins and be forced to drink of the cup of martyrdom along with those Jews when that Jews hour come in. More could be said about this woman and the man-child. The bride will not be here-at this dark hour she will be gone. But before she is caught away, according to the scripture, the coming together of all this and the manipulation of all this will be so very close that you might refer to it as a lion on your heels. That’s why Paul said, “That day shall not come except there be a falling away first and the man of sin be revealed,” We know the spirit of iniquity doth all ready work! We know what his office is! We know what his whole system is, and how its to be made up for that hour, yet awaits for his full identity meaning when the world will say, HERE IS THE MAN THAT NOW CAN GIVE A TRUTH and when that man is fully announced then the devil is going to take the complete thing into his power.


Very few actually know why Rome destroyed Jerusalem – in 70 A.D. This is the Actual account as recorded by Josephus, the Jewish Historian. It seemed that the sixties (especially between 65 & 70) witnessed much religious struggle for power. The Major three groups struggling for the religious power especially the high priest office were the Zealots, the Sadduccs and the Pharisees. It seemed that no one group could hold the High priest office and temple offices for any length of time before the other rival group would soon rise with enough strength to overthrow the present administration-and place their man in the priest chair. This overthrow of power developed into civil war between these religious factions in the religious circle until it became a continual Civil war involving far more than mere religious struggles for power. Multitudes of innocent bystanders were being killed, caught between their struggles. This became so alarming that the Sanhedrin sought government aid from Cestiues Gallus the Roman governor to surpress these social party uprisings. To do so, the Governor sent 30,000 men to restore imperial authority, Autumn 66 the troops under the command of Sesus entered Jerusalem. The Jews retreated to the temple, leaving to him the possession of the city which he burned. Their encountering battles with the Jews were insufficient to put down the Civil religious uprising, while the Victorious Jews returned to the City putting on a demonstration of Joy-The Roman soldiers, beaten and battle scared with their heavy loss of 9000 men, returned to Gallus the Roman Governor who immediately sought Imperial Aid from Nero the Roman emperor who dispatched Vespacian with 60,000 troops. Vespacian encountered very little opposition crossing Galilee. Gabara was the First place to put up any resistances, yet all the Inhabitants and the city was destroyed. Next he turned his vast army against Jotopata a rock fortress in the bosom of the Mountain. Josephus who was in this stronghold wanted to surrender to the Romans but his view was not shared by fellow officers who said if they had to die fighting so would he. Josephus knew they were not match for 60,000 men who were the most advanced troops of that day with 160 bombardment machines.


For 47 days they held the stronghold until a traitor from within showed the Roman’s how to take over. That night 40,000 Jews were killed in their sleep. God’s Providence spared Josephus who prophesied, Oh! Vespasian, knoweth not thou shall soon be emperor of Rome. Unbeknowings to Vespasian, Nero had already been killed and a runner was on the way to give Vespasian the news. On the Army marched with out resistances from Jaffa to Tiberus. The only Fortress to offer resistance was Gamala at the cost of 9000 men, also dying in this battle was King Agrippa. Jerusalem was their next stop, to put down the Civil strife causing so much detriment. Again the civil war was in progress between the Zealots and the Sadducees with the Zealots in present power at the arrival of Vespasian. These Crazed Jews, because they drove off 30,000 Romans, decided to fight instead of surrender. Simon the Zealot priest, with 2400 men, seized the temple and fortified themselves within it. The three hostile garrisons were determined to defend themselves against their one common enemy, the Roman Empire. Some of the religious sect holding the greatest number of men were placed in positions of defending the city under the more disadvantaged positions. Jerusalem was strongly protected and fortified naturally, surrounded by three strong walls and ninety lofty towers. The first wall being 171/2 feet thick with stones 38 feet long was considered to be almost impregnable, also guarded by her mighty towers. Built on the same solid masonry. Her second wall began at the gate of Gennath on the west and intersected to the lower city then ran to the northwestern tower of Antoiad, which alone stood on a high precipitous rock 90 feet high. At the N.W. the third or inner wall which enclosed Zion started from the southwest side of the temple, ran first south and then turned westward till it joined the tower Attichos. Then the wall running southward to Bethuras along the ridge of the valley Hinnom to the pool of Siloum then turned on to the temple. Strong were these walls; strong and impregnable as were these towers. The eastern and southern side were preciptious while the other sides had been walled in to the height of 500 ft.-such was the mighty strength of Jerusalem against the Roman troops encamped about on that memorial passover in the year 70 when the seige commenced. Vespasian made no real attack on the city before he was called back to Rome to become Emperor. Nero had been killed. Remember, Josephus had prophesied this previously. The nearly 50,000 were turned over to Titus to wage the battle against Jerusalem.

Five miles from Jerusalem Titus stopped at Gibeath -Saul. Taking an escort of 600 forces, he proceeded to the city only to find the gates closed and the surrounding peaceful and quite. As the squadron turned toward the Tower Psephinus a band of defenders rushed through the gate separating Titus from his men. Retreat nor advance seemed possible. Titus dashed through his assailants, cut-ting his way through. The following day he advanced his troops to Jerusalem. The 12th and 15th legions were camped in front, the fifth behind them, the 10th on Mt. Olive. While inside Jerusalem on the eve of the passover was another attack upon the present administration in the high priest’s office—more civil war had broken out between the various parties. The 10th legion seized work at Mt. Olive and began digging trenchs, certainly expecting no trouble from the Jews who were engaged inside in their own civil war, but the Jews surprised them, rushing irresistibly forward causing the 10th legion to retreat. The safety of the entire legion became impregnable until Titus arrived with reinforcements, driving the assailants into the valley of Kidron.

Titus Vespasian

Later that day the troops resumed operations only to be face; with another vigorous attack from across the valley. Again the 10th legion took flight. The Romans began cutting down trees and leveling all rocks that stood be-tween them and the city. So many hands were employed in this work it was accomplished in four days. Meantime Titus sent offerings of peace to the city only to have his soldiers driven away as those on the walls were clammering wildly for peace. Titus again sends new officers along with Josephus to the city to reason with the Jews but to no avail. As the ambassadors were driven away by a stream of arrows, the besiegers danced on the ramparts at their success. Titus, moving nearer to the city, established himself one quarter mile from the first wall (which was the lowest). Work now began by the Roman troops in readiness for bombardment, building themselves plat-forms, some the height of 70 feet making it level with the wall. Huge platforms were necessary to roll about their bombardment ma-chines, support companies of bow-men, slingers, and javelin men. The engines were constructed on two principals— 1. The catapult, an enormous crossbow for the dis-charging of arrows that could send arrows at such a rapid flight sparks of fire were created. 2. The ballista was composed of a spring of tough wood which, being drawn by human force or by a screw to a horizontal position, was suddenly set free by the blow of a hammer, hurled stones at such considerable force that Josephus related he witnessed a stone cut off a man’s head at 600 yards. Their engines were powerful and when well directed, shook the wall with the force of a cannon.

Roman Ballista

Titus divided his army into 3 divisions, each forming an embankment of its own. Between the embankments he placed his ma-chines. Behind the machines the archers were placed. The 10th legion attacked by constructing ballista, throwing 50 lb. stones to the distance of two furlongs. Jewish watchmen, recognizing the stones by their whiteness, cried out, the bolt is coming, thus enabling them to avoid the blow. Finally the Romans discovered the whiteness of the rocks were give-away so they blackened the stone making them invisible and crushed numbers of men at a time. The Jews themselves also had a few weapons called seige engines taken from Ceastus before Vespasian arrived, however ignorance of their usage made them of little effect. Their major harassment of the enemy was frequent assaults but the Roman missiles wrought terrible havoc before the rams were brought into place. When all was in readiness three of these engines were advanced to begin their battering of the wall and the effect struck terror in the heart of the Jew. Jews launched fire upon these machines and operators. They would dash out, tear away the screen and slay the men protected behind them. At last the ram belonging to the 15th legion brought down the corner of the tower. This threw such terror into the Jews all operations were suspended temporarily. While Roman soldiers congratulated themselves upon their success and set working plans in operation to penetrate the next gate, suddenly from an unperceived gate a complete unit of Jews came pouring forth with flaming brands to set the machines afire. Had it not been again for Titus arriving on the scene with more troops the day’s work would have been lost. Titus alone killed 12 men with his bare hands. On the 4th night after the commencing of the seige the first wall was completely weakened by the ramming machines. The Jews fled the area retiring to their second place of defense. As orders were given to attack the 2nd wall the conflict became most furious. Jews fought more daring and courageous than ever. Having sections of the outer wall removed Titus now advances his ramming engines into position against the 2nd defense. As the ramming commenced against the second wall the Jews showed signs from the wall of surrender. While at the same time signaling to the 2nd group of their conflicting parties fighting for the high priest control to prepare to give the Ro- mans a warm reception. Titus discovered this maneuver and moved more vigorously in his assault against the Jews. The Jews now set fire to the great tower and fling themselves into the flames as the rams demolished the tower wall. The 2nd enclosure was taken on the 2nd day of its attack. In this area and part of the new city was where the braziers, woolstaplers and clothier warehouses were situated. The romans now in the streets of the city felt sure Titus would give an order to demolish all of these houses but he did not. He warned his men against plunder. Whenever possible Jews would fall upon the troops as they entered the city. From house to house; from courts and every street and gate the Jews would pour into these enclosures and fight with rage. Again Titus hastened to the aid of his troops placing archers at the head of the lanes and streets to gain time for his beaten soldiers to retreat outside the wall. This victory raised high the spirit of the Jews for as the Romans had captured the 2nd line they had been repulsed. For three days the Jews barricaded the breach and defended it, however, on the 4th they were compelled to retreat and Titus once again entered. Clearing away a part of the wall and the towers, this left only one wail remaining with the larger part of the city in Roman control. Still there remained the most important work to be accomplished for the strongholds of the 3rd wall and what lay behind it would be the most important stand for the Jews. Titus withdraws his troops for 4 days giving the Jews time to reconsider surrender at which time he held a review of the troops, paid them their salaries and gave a new supply of provisions. The legions marched with glittering shields and gay accouterments, while the calvary was decked in their glorious trappings. Seemingly, the only sad ones in the crowd were Jewish people beholding the doom of their city. The entire length of the third wall was crowded with spectators, even standing on rooftops. Titus had hoped such a display would bring the Jews to terms. His hopes were shattered when his messengers returned. On the 5th day he resumed his offensive. Each Roman leader was given 300 catapults and 40 balistae. The condition of the inhabitants inside Jerusalem was growing more severe. Famine was evident; Corn was nowhere to be seen. The search for food grew severe. Anyone looking sleek was suspected of having a secret storeroom. His house was visited and if nothing was found he was tortured. If the stores were discovered, he was punished for not producing it on demand. If it was possible to purchase a single measure of wheat or barley, one would do it at the cost of one half of his property and then eat it in a most secret place of his house, either raw or half cooked. No one dared set a table for a meal. Wives would steal the last morsel from their husband, children from parents and parents from children. Mothers would rob crying infants of the milk nature supplied them by consuming it themselves. Any kind of food was readily acceptable and eaten in peril of robbers for they were sure to be near. People would burst into others homes and pluck crumbs from the eater. Old men were scourged until they surrendered their last morsel clutched between their fingers. Women were dragged by their hair until they gave up what they possessed. Children seized, whirled and dashed against stone wall and then robbed of little morsels held in their unconscious hands. It was said of the two rival parties causing all the trouble whose high priest was Simeon and John. One party would plunder the poor only to have the other party plunder them. Between the two parties all was completely stripped. Josephus described them as drinking to each other out of the blood of the citizens and shared their corpses between them. Furthermore it was evident that no food could be brought into the remaining part of the city of Jerusalem for Roman soldiers had cut off all entrances.

Starving Jews who had wandered out in search of food were captured and put to death. 500 per day were crucified until there were no room for crosses. Titus pretended he did not have enough men to handle so many prisoners. This was a military necessity. The Jewish soldiers delighted to point out acts of cruelty by the Romans to their citizens. Titus sent prisoners back to talk terms of surrender with their sword hand missing. The Jews shouted defiances at Titus saying they despised death but preferred it to slavery. As long as they could breathe they would do all mischief possible to the Romans. Seventeen days later after building a high embankment against the tower of Antonia, the engines were brought into striking positions against the wall. As the attackers were ready to commence, John sprang a mine which had been constructed under the banks and down they rolled amidst smoke and flame and half smothered combustibles. The Romans were thunderstruck, giving up all attempt to preserve their works. Two days Simon and his party made an attempt to destroy the other embankments. Here the Romans faced their heaviest attacks by the starving Jew as they fought desperately to hold this last wall, pouring hot liquid fire down upon the Romans, driving them back and destroying their mounts causing them to suffer loss of all their labor. The Romans now began to despair in capturing Jerusalem by ordinary means of warfare. Now thwarted in his efforts, Titus held a special meeting where 3 plans were proposed to capture the city— 1. Storm the city with all available troops; 2. Block it and starve the city into submission; 3. Repair the engines and resume the operations. Titus opposed the first plan saying, men fight harder when driven in desperation. Settling on the second, he moved his large force outside the city and waited to starve them out. His plan was to surround the city five miles by an embankment which was accomplished in 3 days. The Jews were now cut on on every side and the famine took a wider range devouring entire families. Houses were full of dying men, women and children while in the streets lay the dead, old and infirm. Young men staggered about the market place only to fall dead. Burying their dead was an impossibility, others were too weak to do so. Many died while attending to the dead. Amidst these horrors no wailing or weeping could be heard but with dry eyes and open mouths the living witnessed the dead go to rest. Robbers continued plundering not only the living but the dead, testing the temper of their swords upon dying men. The first order was for the public to bear the cost of burying the dead, soon the expense became so heavy they merely hurled the dead over the walls into the valley. The death toll amounted to 600,000. Titus, as he made his rounds, is said to have groaned and stretched his hands toward heaven, to have called God to witness that this was not his work. Deserters now begin to arrive in the Roman camp, throwing themselves over the walls or pretending to go out to fight the enemy. Their description of things inside were terrible—houses now being turned into catacombs; sewers and old dung hills were searched for food. Men ate their belts, shoes and even leather covering on their shields. The rich managed to live on old hay for they alone could afford it. Robbers roaming the street, broke into a house after smelling flesh cooked was horror struck upon witnessing a woman eating her infant. Meantime military operations began against the city. Realizing their former bombardments had not been too successful when attacking the wall, decided upon another plan of attack. Locking their shields over their heads, protecting themselves from attack above, dug with crowbars at the foundation of the 3rd wall until 4 stones had been loosened. The following night the wall fell. In the morning a new wall appeared. In order to cut off all communications with the temple, the Jews set fire to the stately galleries of the north cloister which connected to the sacred edifice tower which had already fallen. Once again Titus sent Josephus to discuss plans to surrender before the temple should be injured, only to have the high priest John to reply he feared not the taking of the city for it was God’s own. The Temple had to now become their fortress, in the area of the last stronghold before actually arriving on temple grounds. For 8 hours the battle raged with not a foot of territory gained. The roman legions now commence 4 mounds to operate against the Temple, but in 6 days the strongest engines of the Romans had not made the slightest dent in the well jointed stones of the Temple. Attempting the scaling of ladders, the Romans were met with the most fierce defense, being slaughtered on their ladders by 100’s. They were driven to fight on. The soldiers, now enraged, applied fire to the gates of the porticoes and the silver melting, the wood work was soon in flames, rapidly extending to the inner court, would have continued all night but was extinguished by Titus who was resolved to spare the temple. While determining the next day upon a general assault THAT NIGHT the infuriated Jews made two assaults upon the Romans, many of whom were engaged in putting out the fire in obedience of Titus. It was at this time one of the soldiers, empelled by fury, snatched a brand from the burning gallery and being lifted by another soldier set fire to a little golden window leading to one of the passages of the holy place. The fire raged heavily as Titus who had already retired for rest rushed forth in all his efforts to stop the raging fire. His soldiers pretend in his calamity not to hear his command; from court to court the flames were spreading but still the sanctuary remained unscarred. With words and even blows Titus restrained his soldiers but their passions had reached such a peak and their hatred of the Jews was too much to spare their temple. A soldier thrust a brand beneath the door and the temple was burned. The heads of the two rival factors for high priest office who had caused all the trouble in the beginning rushed to the upper Zion and refused to surrender at any cost. This so exasperated Titus he plundered and set fire to the lower city to which he had possession. The town was taken by storm and thousands slaughtered. Those who were kept alive were sold into slavery or put in the arenas to serve as galdiators. At last Simeon and John were starved into submission. John was sentenced to death but his sentence was reduce; to life in prison. Simeon was sent to Rome and after gracing the triumph was decapitated in the Forum. The work of massacre was finished. Titus ordered the demolition of the city with any of its noble structures and fortifications, nothing being left but a piece of the western wall and the 3 towers. Over the site, we are told Titus carried the plough, a sign of its eternal devastation.

The Age of Regeneration (1969)

Rev. Raymond M. Jackson

Translators today have used many expressions in attempt to describe the Greek word for regeneration used by the King James translators in Matt. 19 : 28—”…In the regeneration.” These expression range from age of the new creation, age of the new order of life to when the world is born anew. Webster describes the word regeneration under two words “re-” being a prefix showing you are re-doing something over that has already been done once, such as re-trace a picture re-baptize a convert as Paul did (Act 19:5) re-built etc. Generation deals with production of offsprings. A generation today is about 33 years but in that hour one generation could live 1000 years—What happens in that hour of regeneration is what this alluring and exciting message is about. What happens in this age causing animals to dwell peacefully together, and men to study war no more is what this message is all about. What pad does the people in this age play in that age of the regeneration? 


Throughout that 1000 year age or the age of the regeneration God is not only in the process of renewing the earth back into its Adamic state, but will at that same time (1). be renewing the animal kingdom, (2). renewing a new social order, (3). establishing a divine kingdom ruled by a divine God – through His divine laws of knowledge which shall be taught to His subject people. This law will teach them the ways of God.


 We are the people today who have almost passed through 2000 years of Gospel preaching. The major purpose in Christ coming to the Gentiles, according to Acts 15:14, was to take out, by the preaching of the apostolic doctrine, a people to make up His true church. That true church can only be made up through born-again believers of each church age. This also includes our generation right down to the end of the final church age — concluding the dispensation of Grace. The Millenium reign will further show the work God has purposed for this special class of believers. TWO FACTS MUST BE ACCEPTED CONCERNING OUR AGE.

 (1) — We must accept the fact our age has almost played out and soon the tribulation period will run its course winding up the ages and (2)—We must accept the fact Christ Jesus is soon to return for the product produced by this gospel being preached- throughout the ages- (his church, body, or bride) which was, called out from every generation of each church age. In this Message today, we desire to formulate many things in your mind concerning this New age which we are rapidly approaching. Our purpose is that you may form an overall picture of the age called by man’s theological term THE MILLENIUM – Although this word millenium never once appears in scripture, it means a thousand years of time, and is the very next age on God’s calendar.


Just as there was an age before the flood, there was an age also between the flood and the cross called — The Law Age, then our age began with the preaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ — remember NONE OF THESE AGES CAN ENDURE FOREVER — once each age had served its purpose it would always fade out to give room for the new age on its way, and we must bravely lace the fact our Grace age l has almost come to an end also. Everything is rapidly moving toward the wind up. Nations dread the thought of Armageddon – but Armageddon must come. It’s on the program—all things are now ready—all things are set in motion for a quick wind up of this age. 

Our age is destined to close out with the most horrible period known to man — that period of the tribulation will have such an impact on the world order that unless God did not shorten the days there would be no flesh saved alive (Matt. 24:22) and there must be flesh saved alive for the new 1000 year age, WITHOUT A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF FLESH SAVED A-LIVE HE COULD NOT BEGIN HIS NEW AGE — AND PERFORM ITS PURPOSE. Remember His method of starting each age has always been to remove some from the fading age and place them in His new Age. From the flood He took 8; from the Law Age He salvaged about 120 to begin the new grace age at Pentecost — So there will be a certain number of humans saved from the terrible tribulation period, which The Eternal God is forced to shorten IN ORDER SOME FLESH BE SAVED ALIVE FOR HIS NEW AGE AND NEW PURPOSE — as we head into that eternal age – soon as the 1000 years are expired, called the 1000 year reign. 


 Immediately beyond that dread-ed tribulation period which comes upon the nations (Gentiles) to try them, shall appear the sign of the corning of the Son of Man in power and great Glory — to begin His new reign on earth with His wife He married at the wedding supper of the Lamb. Jesus called this great day – (1000 years) THE DAY OF THE REGENERATION. Peter had been concerned about what they (12 disciples) would receive out of all this, seeing they had forsaken all to follow him. Christ assured them a wonderful thing- Once he had come into the age of the regeneration when He would sit on the throne of his glory, they would each sit on 12 thrones also, judging the 12 tribes of Israel— Isn’t it strange that Christ never once hinted how long the age of regeneration would last? That question dealing with the length of the age is never mentioned until we come to the Apostle John on the Island of Patmos, Rev. 20:45 when he said THE AGE WOULD BE 1000 YEARS LONG — According to these verses Christ had brought the bride with Him from Glory to begin the New reign — At this point He raises beheaded souls that HAD NOT TAKEN THE MARK OF THE BEAST NOR HIS IMAGE-(image only appears during the tribulation period)-and ALLOWS THEM ALSO TO REIGN WITH HIM FOR 1000 YEARS but the rest of the dead lived not again until the 1000 years were finished. John does not only tell us the age will last 1000 years, but he tells us ANOTHER PHRASE OF THE FIRST RESURRECTION (The resurrection with power) TAKES PLACE AND TRIBULATION SAINTS WILL ARISE to be in this new reign-those who were beheaded for their testimony—The Image of the Beast which placed I that official boycott on the world, when no one could buy or sell save those with the mark. John saw the souls of all these people beheaded rise in a special resurrection that INCLUDED TRIBULATION SAINTS ONLY — the Bride stood with Christ as He resurrected these tribulation saints. 

The age of the 1000 years is now ready to begin. Though these poor beheaded tribulation saints WERE NOT IN THE BRIDE OF CHRIST THEY SHALL RECEIVE SOME LOWER POSITION IN CHRIST’S REIGNING AUTHORITY. Notice the Queen (Bride church) is already her throne in Rev. 20:3 so it was John, not Christ, the eternal spirit chose to show this part of the revelation of Himself though, God, through time has always allowed men small glimpses of His divine purpose within that glorious thousand year reign. It is through such means of divine revelation God purposes to reveal Himself and His purpose in dark hours of such great apostasy. No matter how great this ipostasy would become, He always used THIS METHOD OF REVELATION of His will to the hungry—leaned seekers of His divine purpose, TO ENCOURAGE, UP-LIFT, and STIMULATE HIS TRUE BELIEVERS. With fresh revelation He could always stimulate enthusiasm causing the true believer to go on in dark hours. Yes, Christ could have easily told the entire story of the age, but he did not choose to do so. Instead, the Holy Spirit, through the acts of the apostles, said Christ was here to call out a Gentile people or His name (in marriage). Only through marriage can a woman be called by a new name. Fully aware its own people would refuse him, (John 1: 11-12) the gospel was sent to the Gentiles to gather a people or His name to assist CHRIST in ruling during the 1000 years reign. The people born of the true gospel of Christ will be HIS WIFE in that 1000 year reign and having thrones to rule over the Gentiles, restoring to this earth God’s divine laws of Himself.

 In that age we shall be only one ge short of the great eternal age where God will have placed everything back in the universe as it was before Satan tempted Eve in the garden and the transgression came — Notice how many ages by this time God will have used to restore all things back as they were before the transgression in the perfect Garden of Eden. Remember this 1000 year reign of Christ on earth with all His ruling saints over the age WILL NOT BE THE PERFECT AGE. There will be a continuance of death and punishment for sin and disobedience during that 1000 year age for certain cases- (more will be said later to clarify this point)- What I want to say now is, the 1000 years reign IS NOT THE PERFECT AGE; THE AGE TO FOLLOW IT WILL BE THE PERFECT AGE, when God will dissolve the memory of the past from our minds and make all things new. (Isa. 65:17)


 Are you aware new subjects must need to be chosen — for the king to reign over? How will these subjects be chosen? Observing the scriptures in Matt. 25:31-46 we see a people standing ready for judgment after the tribulation period has passed and did you notice not one book was open from which to judge these people from? THESE PEOPLE DID NOT GO WITH THE BRIDE when it passed them by — They were not killed during the tribulation nor did they receive the Mark of the beast — for if they had, Christ would have destroyed them Himself with the brightness of His coming — (Thess. 1: 7-10)(Also 2:9) How they managed to survive is really a mystery-no one knows-the scripture is silent. But we notice from the words of Christ (Matt. 25:3146 passing sentence on both the sheep and the goat nations they were judged on the basis of how they had treated their FELLOW MEN who had greatly suffered during that dark hour of the tribulation. Some they had befriended were naked, hungry, and in prison – (Matt. 25:35-36) on the basis of only a few statements Christ passes judgment on who was worthy to enter the kingdom age with Him from these mortal people. To some He said Enter into the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world—to the other groups He said just the opposite, depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels Matt. 25:41. 


Christ could have related the entire story, of all that would be accomplished through the thousand year age, but He didn’t, He simply covers it all with that one word, IN THE REGENERATION when the son of man shall sit on the throne of his glory. WHERE IS THAT THRONE OF HIS GLORY? It is none other than the throne of David. When God raised up David and established him as King of Israel, the Eternal One saw in David a man whom He could trust, a man who had an insight into the way that God wanted that nation to be ruled, Therefore, God said; David is a man after mine own heart, after mine own liking, after mine own affection and David was promised a throne and kingdom that would stand forever. In David’s old age God promised him He would raise up a son (a Seed) of his loins—a son who would be established on that throne. To this son would be granted his kingdom forever. This, in type, was fulfilled by Solomon (son of David) who ruled in righteousness for a period of time, when perfect peace was found in the nation and with all nations round-about. Solomon projected the true kind of rule in Peace (in type) that would be in reality throughout the 1000 year reign. The wisdom that was invested in Solomon (IN PART) will be portrayed IN FULL in the son of David as he rules and reigns in righteousness and wisdom. Scripture in conjunction with this-Matt. 25:31. Again Jesus is recorded as saying, “when the son of man shall come in His glory and all the holy angels with Him then shall HE SIT UPON THE THRONE OF HIS GLORY. Notice here the same as in Matt. 19—Christ again refers to THE THRONE OF HIS GLORY. So we entitled this message THE KING ON THE THRONE OF HIS GLORY AND FOR WHAT PURPOSE DOES HE REIGN? Christ (son of David) is saying here, then shall He sit upon the throne of His glory and before Him shall be gathered all nations whom He shall separate one from the other as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats. Placing his sheep on the right hand and the goats on the left hand. But did you notice at this judgement NO WHERE is it mentioned there would be any books opened to judge the people as there will be when He judges in Rev. 20:11-15. THERE ARE NO BOOKS OPENED. Why do I make that statement? Because there is only one throne which Christ even called THE THRONE OF HIS GLORY, and THAT’S THE ANCIENT SEAT OF DAVID. 


Ask yourself two questions. What and WHERE is His position now? Christ is now positioned in the Father’s throne. (Rev. 3:21) Again you must understand what is meant by the FATHER’S THRONE. The scriptures teach that Christ has been exalted. He has been crowned with the glory of the Great Eternal Spirit THAT HE SHOULD RULE IN THE HEAVEN5. (Eph. 1:20-22) Some people conjure up the idea of the Glorified man (Christ) seated in a chair placed on the right-hand side of another person who also sits in a large chair. This is not the picture! In the Laodicean Church Age of Revelation (the last church age) Christ is found speaking to the Apostle John and TO OUR AGE (especially) saying, “to him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in MY THRONE.” (Rev. 3:21) (Remember, TODAY HE IS NOT ON HIS THRONE OF GLORY, that ancient throne seat of David) “..even as I HAVE OVERCOME and sit down with my father in his throne.” From this verse the trinitarian mind automatically picture 2 persons sitting in the heavens with Christ SITTING ON the right hand of someone in a huge throne. Remember when Jesus said, to him that overcometh will I grant to sit WITH ME IN MY THRONE— His throne will be on earth. We are aware that when He comes to earth to that throne He will bring with Him a wife, won’t He? A church that will be made up of a PLURALITY OF PEOPLE but YET IN HIS STATEMENT TO THOSE OVERCOMERS HE HAS PROMISED THAT THEY COULD SIT WITH HIM IN HIS THRONE. Are we literally to believe that all this great plurality of people making up His bride (all overcomers) will be able to literally SIT DOWN with Him IN ONE CHAIR? Certainly not. Again this is a figure of speech to designate the transmitting of authority that He, by having married Himself a wife, will delegate this authority, already invested in Him to be the King of the Earth, HE WILL DELEGATE OR SHARE IT WITH HIS WIFE, certainly his wife will not necessarily sit in the SAME NATURAL EARTHLY CHAIR which He sits, although it is stated that way. Imagine the hustle and the bustle of His Bride rushing to Him saying, NOW YOU PROMISED, LET ME SIT DOWN WITH YOU. We must understand this is only a symbolic language that designates the TRANSMITTING OF AUTHORITY. Before Jesus left this earth he told his disciples, all power and authority is given unto Me (Or Invested in me) Matt. 28:18. When Paul stated, Christ was taken up and seated on the right hand of the father, (the father who fills all space), what did he literally mean? The meaning is the Great Eternal Spirit who fills and rules this universe carried Christ up and delegated Him, (the God-man) to now be in the position of the Father, in so much that all authority in heaven and earth is INVESTED IN HIM—turned over or delegated unto him. 

Now watch another statement made by Stephen who being stoned to death, witnessed he saw HEAVEN OPEN and cried out, “I see Jesus STANDING on the right hand of the Father” (Acts 7:56) Again I ask you a simple question, WHAT IS CHRIST DOING? STANDING OR SITTING? According to Stephen He is standing; according to Paul He is sitting. What is He really doing? If He is standing He can’t be sitting, and if He’s sitting He can’t be standing, can He? But again the answer is a most simple one. It is ABSOLUTELY SYMBOLIC only in the sense man’s language is symbolic. What was seen and portrayed here was to symbolize the authority exercised in His different MEDIATORIAL CAPACITY, (1). remember Christ is a mediator (1 Tim. 2:5) high priest of our profession, (Heb. 4:14)(lleb. 7:25) and everyone knows the duties of a high priest, going into the Holy of Holies, into the presence of the Most High. It certainly isn’t going in and sitting down. The high priest, continually walks carrying the blood of the Covenant, interceding before the Mercy Seat, right? So as our mediator, Christ is standing at the right hand of glory, or power,— standing on the right hand of the father, that great Eternal Spirit, who delegates all unto Him to intercede in behalf of His atonement work which was accomplished at Calvary. (Heb. 8:1-6) Yes, in this capacity HE IS STANDING, INTERCEDING for the human race. (2). Although he is portrayed as Paul saw him BY SITTING on the right hand of the father, again what does this portray? HERE HE IS TO JUDGE. 


 Remember how Christ was clothed when John heard that greal voice behind him sounding as the rushing of many waters? (Rev. 1:12-18) John turned and saw Jesus standing in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks WITH FEET LIKE BRASS. It means HE STOOD IN OUR PLACE taking upon Himself the sins of the world, (our sins). He stood in our place; He was judged for us, and our sins were judged in Christ at Calvary. John saw him robed in a white garment wearing a golden girdle about the paps. That golden girdle was the Insignia of THE HIGH PRIEST. John’s eyes glanced upon his hair and to his astonishment his dear friend of whom he leaned on his breast at the last supper had HAIR WHITE AS WOOL. What does this signify? While on earth Christ didn’t have white hair, what could it mean? It means he has been WIGGED WITH THE AUTHORITY of the Great Eternal SPint WHO IS JUDGE OVER THE UNIVERSE. The very fact He is portrayed unto John on the Isle of Patmos wearing that White hair; He had RECEIVED THE JUDGESHIP OF THE GREAT ETERNAL SPIRIT. That is why He could commission His disciples to go into all the world and preach the gospel, assuring them whatsoever they would bind on earth would be bound in heaven. 


Notice Christ is our power of attorney (meaning our mediator) He pleads our case, and he also carries the power and authority of an attorney to lose the case. Here it is most important that we understand what the position of the throne of heaven is. The scripture says in (Act 7:49, isa. 66:1) “HEAVEN IS MY THRONE AND THE EARTH IS MY FOOTSTOOL Remember when we speak of the throne of HIS GLORY, (it is not the Father’s throne.) We shall always be speaking of one throne only, THE ANCIENT SEAT OF DAVID. Out of Zion, testified the prophet, shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD FROM JERUSALEM IN THAT DAY. As we portray this KING ON THE THRONE OF HIS GLORY, we must realize we are staring directly into the new age called the thousand year reign, we must admit our age (world) is rapidly approaching that hour. Shortly before the world is to enter into that glorious age, she must pass through the darkest hour of world history. In this message we cannot stop to explain that dark hour, ruled by the antichrist. Today we need only to establish two things. (1). For what purpose is the thousand year period. (2). Who will be there. 


 What is this new period to accomplish? Many are the scriptures of the Old Testament showing God, through the mouth of his prophets giving to Israel an insight of that day when Israel shall be lifted up as a nation. From that nation of Israel the Great Messianic King would nile. Under His reign the earth would experience much blessing. The Israelite nation receives these prophecies from each prophet with much enthusiasm. This good news caused their hearts to beat and yearn for that marvelous hour when their Messiah (and King) would come. But pitiful to say, when their Messiah did arrive, they failed to recognize THEIR HOUR Christ had came to be their Savior and Messiah. In failing to recognize Him during His rust advent, God cut Israel off FOR A PERIOD OF TIME and gave to the gentiles THE CHURCH AGE. and all the benefits of His first coming. Our hearts should be doubly thankful to this Eternal God for giving us the privilege of enjoying what the Israelite nation rejected. When we ourselves were cut off from his grace-alienated from Him, lost without hope. Over these 1900 years that this glorious gospel of grace was preached, nations (Gentiles) have played with it, trampling it under their feet, until now there is beating upon the doors of time the very fact that this Jewish nation is already back in their homeland, ready to receive their Messiah (Luke 21:24) You and I have lived to see the day that God, through His great hand of mercy, has swept down across this earth getting the Jew (Israel) ready for the new age, that all which was spoken by the prophets might be fulfilled concerning this new 1000 year reign, regathering His Jewish people, placing them back in their own homeland. Many Theologians probably thought this hour would never arrive, but the fact remains IT HAS BEEN ACCOMPLISHED. Many think this regathering of Israel was the hand of some world political maneuver. NOT SO! It was none other than the hand of the Almighty God, fulfilling His prophetic word. 

Today the nations are greatly troubled and disturbed over happenings in the Middle East. Are you aware the Middle East has placed this entire Gentile world more on edge than anything going on today? Each week and each month the tension grows more tense. Recently we read an article concerning Russia’s Gromyko who was interviewed by an announcer. Gromyko said he was on his way back to Russia with a report that THE SITUATION IN THE MIDDLE EAST WAS GETTING MORE STICKY ALL THE TIME, AND IT DEEPLY INVOLVED RUSSIA, Keep your eyes on Russia as the Great Bear of the north plays her part right into this endtime crisis.


Back to the throne of glory, here is an interesting question. WHO IS GOING TO BE THERE? Just who will be in this age? Who will Christ receive as subjects for that hour? Do we realize the preaching of the gospel through these 1900 years of grace was God’s way of calling out of the Gentiles, A PEOPLE FOR HIS NAME (Acts 15:14) to be wedded unto Him at the close of the age? This is the opportunity Christ offered the Jewish race, but they rejected His proposal. Not to be defeated in his purpose, He said then I WILL TAKE IT TO THE GENTILES. Watch closely the same rewards for obedience in accepting His proposal promised unto Peter in Matt. 19:28 (The son of man sits on the throne of His glory and the apostles shall sit on 12 thrones judging the 12 tribes of Israel) is offered now to the Gentiles. (Rev. 2:26-27 also 3:21) That same promise which Christ gave to the apostles long before that age of the regeneration ever began was recorded also as a reward offered unto the Gentile christian disciples—though the Gentile christians would never sit over the 12 tribes of Israel, that position was already promised to the apostles. But to the Gentile christian called out of this grace age they too were promised they would have their individual thrones as the apostles who shall judge the Jewish people. The Bride will also judge her respective peoples FROM WHENCE SHE HAD BEEN CALLED FROM. 

To allow the scriptures to speak and show forth this truth, turn to Rev. 3:21. Soon Christ shall take to Himself His long-awaited Bride. At the sound of the last trumpet of God the dead in Christ shall rise first and we which remain alive shall be caught up on the clouds and meet God etc. (1 Thess. 4:15-16) In Thessalonians Paul spoke of how the Lord Himself would descend from Heaven with a shout and gather the living and the dead of the seven Church ages. This resurrection shall bring up Paul’s group, Irenias’ group, all saints from the Dark Ages who were worthy, Luther’s group shall be brought up. Yes all the true believers of each age shall come forth together with those who are alive at His coming. These all meet Christ in the air. But WHERE DO THEY GO FROM THERE? To the wedding supper of course, to be wedded to the groom. Once Christ takes His wife. He will then remove THE ROBE (the garment) which portrayed him as a bridegroom and don the garb of a king portrayed in Rev. 19:11-16. 


Remember EACH GARB ALWAYS SYMBOLIZES THE PARTICULAR OFFICE WORK WHICH HE SHALL BE CARRYING OUT. (1). While on earth Christ was a prophet. He looked, acted and dressed as a prophet. (2). Once Christ was in heaven He no longer portrayed the role of prophet. Now He is portrayed in the role of high priest, clothed exactly as John recorded Him appearing on the Isle of Patmos. (3). When He comes for his bride He will not resemble a high priest, no sir. His mediatorial work then will be finished, His coming is for His lovely bride (wife to be). He shall then be dressed as A GROOM —very handsome, very lovable. Amen. Not one scripture reveals what He shall resemble then. Isn’t that wonderful. It is not for the world TO KNOW, only to that people prepared by His Spirit, for that hour who rises to meet Him and become His bride. Only to them shall He appear as bridegroom—they who have made love all down through the ages at last are together. 


While still at the Wedding Supper, where they were married, Christ makes another change. The wife now has become His queen holding the same authority that had been delegated to Him as the King of the World. Let’s dramatize it in this manner “Honey”, says Christ, “This same authority invested in me, I SHARE WITH YOU.” If one thinks I make this sound too foolish you have only to turn in Revelation under the Thyatira Church age and see what He says, Rev. 2:26-27 “..and Him that overcometh and keepeth my works unto the end, to Him will I GIVE POWER OVER THE NATIONS and HE SHALL RULE THEM WITH A ROD OF IRON, as the vessels of a potter, shall they BE BROKEN to shivers even as I (the Christ) received from my father” Isn’t that marvelous? THE BRIDE HAS POWER OVER THE NATIONS. “He that hath an ear let him hear what the spirit saith unto the Churches” As you connect that scripture with the last promise given by the same Christ to the true believers in the Laodicean age, you find the promise TO THE OVERCOMER REPEATED(Rev. 3:21). If the Bride is going to receive power over the nation, THAT POWER MUST COME FROM HER HUSBAND (Christ). It is He who is going to be King of Kings and Lord of Lords (Rev. 19:16). Receiving that Great Eternal Power soon to be invested in Him as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, HE WILL SHARE THIS POWER AND AUTHORITY WITH HIS WIFE. This power and authority which Christ shall share with her gives her a position in his throne—not a position in his literal chair in Jerusalem—this chair only symbolizes His position of authority on earth.


 Do you know the meaning of a throne? A natural throne simply is a chair decked with diamonds and all kinds of beautiful upholstery, but the chair itself is not what gives any king his authority. That same man who sits in his beautiful throne chair could also be sitting astride a horse and have just as much authority. So it isn’t the chair itself giving man his authority any more than the horse does. WHERE DOES HIS AUTHORITY ARISE FROM? His authority comes FROM THE KINGDOM WHICH HE REPRESENTS, Since Christ represents all power and authority OF HEAVEN AND EARTH given unto Him, His chair is merely a position that symbolized what He is. Any King could be astride his horse and carries just as much authority as if he sits in a throne chair. When the promise was given the overcomer “A PLACE IN HIS THRONE”, in reality Christ was saying unto that overcomer “Will I grant him to sit with me IN MY REALM OF MY AUTHORITY, or rule with me in my realm of power. To him that overcometh will I give power over the nations. Once this is clear in your mind, you begin to formulate the true picture of what this true Bride church of the living God has been called unto, SHARING HIS AUTHORITY OVER THE EARTH. Certainly this high calling of Christ is not some slip-shod melancholy little fly-by-night affair. It is the most important calling in life, to have received that call to be a part of a true church of the living God; TO BECOME HIS BRIDE AND RULE OVER THE NATIONS. 


 Who will be in this new thousand year age called the regeneration? (Matt. 19:28) Christ will already have received his wife to he and immediately after the wedding he draped HIMSELF WITH THE KINGLY GARMENT (the GLORY OF GOD.) According to scriptures his clothing shall be different, now he is CLOTHED IN A VESTURE DIPPED IN BLOOD. (Rev. 19:13) Note it is the wrath of God delegated unto him to execute judgement on earth. Since He shall be clothed in this vesture dipped in blood, in some likeness His wife shall also be portrayed in a similar manner. Meanwhile upon earth for a short time, the nations have been under the reign of the antichrist, and his diabolical power. Israel endured the darkest hour of all of her history struggling through the great tribulation, especially after the anti-Christ ordered the Jews to be liquidated. Under that reign of the anti-Christ an order was sent forth, a decree ordering the whole world to bow unto his dictation, this was accomplished through a boycott. (Rev. 13:15-18) Everyone was forced to accept and wear his mark of identification. This identifies all to his diabolical kingdom. But to say that every person on earth WILL BOW TO IT, NO! It cannot be said. There will be many people on this earth, for some reason, who will not bow to it. Strange but neither were they KILLED because they didn’t bow. This is why I make this statement.

 Remember, scripture teaches the Image (World church) makes an order enforcing everyone to be recognized by the number of the beast or his image – in order to buy or sell. HAD EVERYONE RECEIVED THIS DEADLY MARK WE KNOW FULLY WELL WHAT WOULD HAVE HAPPENED AT THE COMING OF CHRIST. Christ would have destroyed all the people with the brightness of his coming. This truly happened to all who received the mark whether it was willingly received or not. They were destroyed, annihilated at the coming of Christ. Had everyone been destroyed by the brightness of His coming then there would have been many scriptures that pertained to the following age that could never have been fulfilled – and always remember this, God will protect every word He has spoken. It will all fit within its proper place. THEREFORE A REMNANT OF PEOPLE OF ALL NATIONS HAD TO BE MIRACULOUSLY SPARED DURING THE TRIBULATION PERIOD, TO BE THE NECESSARY CARRY OVER NEEDED TO BEGIN THE NEW AGE. Remember at the ending of each age, God has salvaged what He needs to begin His new age, when the Law Age closed He salvaged from that age about 120 to begin the Grace Age, so shall a remnant of all the nations be spared FOR THE NEW 1000 YEAR REIGN OUT OF THE TRIBULATION PERIOD.


 Matt. 25: states when the Son of Man comes to sit on the throne of His glory – what does He do? Immediately He gathers before Him PEOPLE OF ALL NATIONS. (Matt 25:31-32) This alone proves every-one wasn’t destroyed, wouldn’t He be a peculiar king, have a queen who He had promised power over the nations to rule with a rod of Iron, and He had gotten excited and slew everyone with his brightness when He came to earth. There would not be a human being left alive for them to rule over. What a sight that would be to behold, Christ and His queen here on earth for a 1000 years reign and nothing here to reign over—All that would be seen would be slain corpses everywhere. How foolish can we be? That not only would destroy THE PURPOSE in the Millenium reign— but it would cancel out completely that Great Eternal Age which was to follow where God makes all things new. (Isa. 65:) So you see there must be a people left alive out of the closing of that dark bloody tribulation period to have material or subjects to work with to perform what the 1000 years reign is to produce leading out to the Eternal Age. 

How Christ chooses his subjects for that reign. Matt. 25: explains it perfectly. Some have mistaken thick gathering of SHEEP NATIONS TO BE THE BRIDE OF CHRIST. How ridiculous! 


 The bride came with Him (Rev. 19:) from glory. She is His queen with power and authority invested in her to rule over THE NATIONS—To rule over these very people who are MORTAL subjects- called sheep nations standing before Him. (Matt. 25:3140) Surely you didn’t think the King and His queen were going to rule over live stock, did you? Live stock was not what transgressed God’s laws in the Garden. These sheep nations may not be christian as you and I think of a christian, we can certainly see they are a people who believe in helping others who are distressed, naked, and in prison—(Matt. 25:34-40) apparently they are not a selfish people thinking only of themselves. AT THIS JUDGMENT WE DO NOT FIND CHRIST OPENING BOOKS AND LOOKING FOR THE GOOD AND BAD DEEDS TO JUDGE THESE PEOPLE BY. Their entire judgment whether they lived and entered into the 1000 year reign with him or would be destroyed, cast in everlast-ing punishment – ALL HINGED on whether or not they could pass a simple oral test, what had been their behaviour during the dark tribulation period determined whether or not they enter into the glorious reign with Christ, His Bride, the Old Testament Saints and resurrected tribulation saints (Rev. 20:4) As this judgment begins, NO BOOKS ARE OPENED, the king simply says — unto those He placed on his right hand, enter into the joys of the kingdom PREPARED FOR YOU before the foundation of the world. (Matt. 25:34) DID YOU HEAR WHAT HE SAID? Christ said this new kingdom age HAD BEEN prepared for these. No doubt today on the face of this earth that very people are alive who stood before Him which shall pass through the great tribulation period into the glorious reign of Christ as subjects of his reign. They are not wicked or mean people, but a people who through the tribulation period did not receive the mark of the beast, nor did they hesitate to show friendship toward certain believers of that critical hour. Christ said unto these (and to no one else), I was in PRISON and you visited me, I was sick and you helped me, I was naked and you clothed me. The multitude in astonishment could never recall ever defending Christ in such a Predicament, though they had truly befriended many who were in this Predicament. They said, “Lord when did we ever do this to you?” We don’t even recall seeing you before. We don’t understand! The King answered and said, “In so much as you did it unto the least of these MY brothers, (Jew and foolish virgins, beheaded during the tribulation, resurrected at His return and are now standing with Him ready for the 1000 yr. reign—Rev. 20:4) you have done it unto me. Now inter into the kingdom that was prepared for you before the world began.” There you are! THERE STANDS HIS MORTAL SUBJECTS FOR HIS NEW REIGN (age of the regeneration) EACH ONE WAS CHOSEN ON THIS BASIS. The other group referred to as goat nations. (Matt. 25:41-46) These were judged also upon the same basis – ONLY THEY FAILED THE TEST. These had not befriended the brethren who were in need. Notice He does not even wait until the 1000 years are completed to pronounce judgment on this group. (Matt. 25:41) No, He does not wait until the Great White throne judgment to pronounce sentence on these souls who come through the tribulation period and stood on His left hand. (Matt. 25:41) DEPART FROM ME YE CURSED INTO EVERLASTING FIRE prepared for the devil and his angels – away with you AND THEY DROPPED DEAD AT HIS WORD. But to the other group, that little element of all nations, who passed the test of brotherly love, was told to enter the kingdom which was prepared for them before the foundation of the world. See, known unto God are all of his works before the foundation of the earth. Back when he counseled with Himself(Eph. 1:11). He thought out this entire plan from beginning unto the end of His program on into the eternal age (age following the 1000 year), before He allowed the first thing to be set in motion to begin it all. THAT’S WHY THE KING COULD SPEAK IN SUCH MANNER, ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM PREPARED FOR YOU — THIS AGE WAS PREPARED FOR YOU — THIS AGE WAS PREPARED FOR THEM BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD.

 REMEMBER THESE SHEEP NATIONS ARE NOT IN GLORIFIED BODIES, THEY WERE IN NO PHASE OF THE FIRST RESURRECTION. These individuals are mortal creatures which death has not claimed AND IF THEY BEHAVE THEMSELVES THEY SHALL LIVE OUT THE ENTIRE 1000 YEARS WITH CHRIST, His bride, the old testament saints and the tribulation saints who were resurrected when Christ and his bride returned to earth. All these have glorified bodies – which their phase of the first resurrection supplied, *John said immediately AFTER the tribulation saints had been resurrected, Blessed and holy is he WHO HATH PART IN THE FIRST RESURRECTION for on the second there is no power, (Rev. 20:5-6) remember never was this statement made UNTIL AFTER CHRIST HAD RETURNED with all his saints (Zac. 14:5) not even until after the resurrection of the tribulation saints did John make this all important statement. Blessed and holy is he taking part in the FIRST RESURRECTION but the rest of the dead (in the ground) lived not again until the 1000 years were over.

 ONLY MORTAL SUBJECTS HAVE HUMAN BODIES ONLY THOSE MORTAL SUBJECTS WHO PASSED THROUGH THE TRIBULATION WILL STILL HAVE THEIR MORTAL BODIES, subject unto the mortal needs and desires. IT WILL BE UP TO THEM TO REPOPULATE THE EARTH. By the time the 1000 years are expired, Satan shall be loosed from his prison to go forth upon the earth to tempt and try those who were born through that 1000 year reign. (Rev. 20:7-9) Believe it or not there will be a new world full of new people (Rev. 20:8) A NUMBER REFERRED TO AS THE SAND OF THE SEA WHO HAVE NEVER BEEN TESTED OR TRIED UNDER THE EVIL INFLUENCE OF SATAN as had all the other ages before that age. God could not allow this glorious age of 1000 years of blissfulness to pass without allowing Satan, the tempter, an opportunity to test and try it. Remember in that hour only the mortal subjects can be tested a number so large—(THE NUMBER AS THE SAND OF THE SEA.) All the others who were resurrected and translated became overcomers in their hour. (Bride, Old Testament Saints, and Tribulation Saints are IMMORTAL) 

As previously stated these people (Matt. 25:34) passing through this tribulation period into the thousand year reign with Christ and His bride WILL NOT NECESSARILY HAVE to be what we, in the Grace age called a christian, but they will need to pass the test in Matt. 25:35-36). 

Don’t let this statement confuse you — we realize these sheep nations – were in no condition to make the bride of Christ when He came for the saints, (1 Thess. 4:16-17) they are not even classified foolish virgins in Matt. 25:1-13, we do not even have the slightest thread of evidence they were even christians whatsoever, as we judge Christianity, but they were a people who believed in the good neighbor policy—they had certainly good morals for such a dark hour as the tribulation, even somehow they miraculously escaped the mark of the beast, all we can say since we know the new kingdom was prepared for them GOD DIVINELY INTERVENED FOR THEM. 


Remember God has already had several ages in which he prepared a certain thing—NO AGE WAS EVER A FAILURE, though most everyone was condemned when the age finished.  IT ALWAYS PERFORMED ITS PURPOSE, God would not permit any age to be a failure in his divine purpose. When the old age ends, it simply gives way to a new age to begin with a new purpose, in Almighty God’s eternal program, and we must understand that you cannot take one age of the past and use it for a measuring stick on the following age. Each age is governed and determined by the purpose of God’s program for that particular age — you could not determine the salvation of the people after the flood by the same laws and standards before the flood: each age carries its own standard. No more than you could measure – those in the Grace age by the law age or vice versa. That’s exactly why the Jewish nation has never been able to understand the Gentile christian who trusted in Christ without the types and shadows that came under the Law Age. (Heb. 10:1) Still in a grace dispensation they continue to carry on the rituals of the Law age — an age of the past. They could not believe the Gentile christian could possibly be right with God, ignoring the commandments of the fathers – found under the law age, WHAT THE JEWISH NATION FAILED TO REALIZE was God had begun a new age after the death of Christ with a new purpose, the old was not sufficient for the new. This Grace age was recorded in the law and’ prophets, Peter said the prophets had searched diligently for this hour but were unable to find it (1 Peter I :10-1 2)—Certainly not, they were in another hour, THE LAW AGE. What they searched for would only be found in the Grace Age, but God had permitted them to glance over into the Grace Age and it stimulated them in so much they hunted and searched for it while still with their own age. Why was this age of Grace such a mystery to the nation of Israel? Paul explained it to the Ephesian church that God had made known unto him the mystery of His will which had been HID IN OTHER AGES, but was now made known unto and prophets by the spirit, how the Gentiles, who in times past had been alienated from God and his Word, would now, through the Grace Age, be brought into fellowship, made heirs in this Glorious Gospel—Think of it, during the Law Age the Gentiles had been aliens to the covenant of hope, but now in the Grace Age it was the Jews who were found on the outside. In the 1000 year age they will be reinstated back in fellow-ship, see it’s God fulfilling His own purpose through each age. Therefore no age can ever go out a failure. It performs what it was designated for. Therefore the people taken from the ending of the tribulation period to begin the 1000 year reign would not necessarily need to be christians according to our measuring rod—we used during the Grace Age, THEY PLEASED GOD AND NOTHING ELSE IS NECESSARY. These were preserved to repopulate the new age. Christ simply judged them solely upon their moral and social principles of conduct toward their fellowmen, never once did he ask them if they were christians and enjoyed attending church or what church group they belonged to, did he? No, that hour was over, we notice these people in Matt. 25: had a principle of life that is fast losing its value in this hour. CARING WHAT HAPPENS UNTO ONE’S FELLOWMAN—WE HAVE BEEN GREATLY SHOCKED BY THE UNCONCERN OF THIS GENERATION TOWARD ONE ANOTHER’S NEEDS, a criminal was known to stab a woman many times in a subway in New York in the presence of many people, not one person lifted a finger to help the dying woman as her blood curdling screams faded into the night. These onlookers said what has become so common in this hour, WE DID NOT WANT TO GET INVOLVED known to stab a woman many times in a subway in New York in the presence of many people, not one person lifted a finger to help the dying woman as her blood curdling screams faded into the night. These onlookers said what has become so common in this hour, WE DID NOT WANT TO GET INVOLVED. Perhaps you know many such personal stories, they are most numerous. Thank God these people who close out this age after it expires were not made out of this kind of stuff. At the possibility of jeopardizing of their own lives, they befriended their fellow man in that hour because they were not of this class of individuals who did not want to get involved with other people’s problems, this group was allowed to enter into the 1000 year reign, where as the Goat nations who did not want to be involved with others needs were cast into Everlasting fire. Whoever these are, they certainly do not typify this dying age, of the unconcerned—THEY WERE CONCERNED. They were not of this attribute of dog eat dog, as the rest of the world is— this again proves God expects us to be our brother’s keeper.


This law God used to judge His subjects whether or not they were worthy to enter the kingdom was a LAW OF KINDNESS which in days gone by, men everywhere observed men, whether christian or not, have always tried to help their neighbor when he was in distress. So we can see that this law of helping one’s neighbor in distress—BROTHERLY KINDNESS WILL GROW WORSE AND WORSE TOWARD THE END. If the law enforcement today is alarmed over the unconcern of individuals for another fellow human being in distress and dire need, they shall directly be distressed over THIS SITUATION as it shall grow Worse until finally God can use this very thing as a means of a measuring stick to judge the remaining peoples Who manage to pass out of the tribulation into the kingdom. It is such people with this attitude the king chooses to reign over. 


 Rev. 20:1-2 Satan was arrested and bound for a 1000 years, placed in the bottomless pit, where he could cause no more trouble, nor run interference with the progress of the new kingdom. Here he can in no wise attempt defeat, disturb or agitate this new glorious reign. Rev. 20:3-4, shows the Bride immediately taking her throne positions over the earth, and I John saw THRONES. We must realize every word in this bible carries a definite meaning. God never allows words to be placed carelessly or foolishly in his book, no sir, if the word is of a singular nature—God will carefully guard it, always allowing it to remain singular. On the other hand, if the word portrays a meaning of plurality he will always see it stays in the plurality. For through that word the Spirit will convey his thought, and John said I saw THRONES – and THEY note, Thrones and THEY, both words are plural, sat upon THEM (plural), and judgment was given to THEM. What judgment was given unto them? The right to judge, the right to execute judgment and pass sentence, the word THEM implies those who John saw sitting on the Thrones. 

Notice another thing John saw AFTER he saw the thrones positions. The verse is connected by the conjunction AND showing it is linking up with something else in its previous statement. — And I saw the souls of them beheaded for the witness of Jesus and for the word of God, etc. Rev. 20:4 THESE LIVED AND REIGNED WITH CHRIST A 1000 YEARS. Our main thought here deals only with THESE THRONES. They are positions which immediately were taken by the Bride of Christ fulfilling (Rev. 2:26 & Rev. 3:21). Remember Rev. 19: revealed Christ coming from heaven with his wife and angels to execute wrath, riding a white horse, after destroying the antichrist kingdom we find no more mention of the white horses, but the following picture portrays the Bride in her throne positions already to rule and reign over the Gentile nations that had passed the Good Neighbor Policy in Matt. 25:34. These thrones definitely show forth the elevated positions over the entire earth which has been established for the Bride (wife) to sit upon. As Christ took His throne position on the seat of David in Jerusalem, His wife also who was called out of every nation shall be established upon her throne positions over all the Gentile nations from which she was taken. 


Are you able now to see more clearly the purpose of Christ coming to the Gentiles during the Grace Age to take out a people for his name sake? HE NEEDED HELPERS, WORKERS IN THE COMING AGE. Remember Jews will not reign over Gentiles, neither Gentiles over Jews. His promise given to Peter and the others still remains true once in the regeneration. They shall sit on 12 thrones judging Israel while his Gentile wife shall be busy taking up her new positions over the Gentile nations from whence she was taken. Now do you understand why this bride calling is such a high calling in God? That bride, who mainly makes up resurrected saints is the queen during the Millenium (1000 year reign) who shall sit ON THRONES judging and executing judgment over the nation; breaking them with the rod of iron. EACH THRONE SHALL BE A THRONE POSITION OF GLORY WHERE THE LAW OF GOD IS EXECUTED, for what purpose? TO ESTABLISH DIVINE ORDER AND KNOWLEDGE ON THE EARTH. 


 Remember the Bride now has her Glorified Body, that is likened unto his Glorified Body (1 John 3:2) mostly these individuals making up the bride-are composed of RESURRECTED saints of 1900 years of grace. Very few of this number were translated without seeing death. They are the dead raised to life ruling and reigning over mortal people of the earth who began with whatever number passed the test in Matt. 25: and grew until Rev. 20:8 was fulfilled. As the Bride takes her throne position, this world will have already passed through the bloody antichrist rule and the real Christ will have destroyed his kingdom with the brightness of his coming (Thess. 2:8). Millions who had sold out to the devil were destroyed, God did not permit a remnant to sell out to 1 the devil. The Great Eternal Spirit t spared a remnant of the nations to be taught the ways of God in this new 1000 year reign.


The first assignment to the new age is to gather the remnant of all nations before the King for judgement. Bear in mind, the judgement on the nations as the millennium began must never be confused with the great white throne judgment which follows the 1000 year reign, when the wicked dead of all ages are raised, (Rev. 20:5) judgement past and the condemned cast into the lake of fire which is the SECOND DEATH (Rev. 20:12-15) MATT. 25 SHOWED NO BOOKS WERE OPEN, Rev. 20:12 showed Books were open and the dead were judged from them. Remember at the beginning of the 1000year reign NO WICKED DEAD ARE RAISED. Only the living who escaped the wrath of God poured out during the final stages of the tribulation days WILL STAND BEFORE HIM. Only those on His right hand did He spare—those on His left hand HE SLAYS. 


Think of it, as Christ and his wife sit on their throne positions judging e these nations (World), then shall n come to pass the First part of the statement made by Paul. “KNOW YE NOT THE SAINTS SHALL JUDGE THE WORLD.” This judgement begins at the entering into the 1000 year reign and the concluding portion of his statement will be fulfilled during the great white throne judgement (Rev. 20:11-15) when SAINTS SHALL JUDGE all condemned wicked ANGELS (11 Pet. 2:4) who are doomed and fallen spirits shall stand before the saints of all ages and be judged (I Cor. 6:3). This dramatic judgement of nations portrayed in Matt. 25:31-46 is for one purpose only, choosing subjects for THE NEW 1000 YEAR REIGN. 

Yes, from the holes of the earth, such as dens and caves within the mountains while villages, towns, and cities are ripped and torn through the judgement of almighty God, out of all this disastrous chaos will come a struggling surviving remnant of all nations who were not harmed through the violent judgement of Almighty God. From Zach 14:1-21 comes even more insight on these national people who were spared this judgement of wrath, who must stand before the King and His Bride. Verse 5 speaks of the coming of the Lord-where people are told to flee to the valley of the mountains, where the valley of the mountains shall reach into a vale (referring to the day when the Lord shall come upon the Mount of Olives and the mountain shall cleave asunder followed by thunder and so forth.) It shall come to pass in the day that the light shall not be clear nor dark, but it shall be one day and it shall be known TO THE LORD not day nor night. It shall come to pass that in that day at evening time (Just before the sunset) will come the darkest hour this world ever witnessed and then dawns the day of the millenium. THERE SHALL BE LIGHT in the evening time. What will this light be? THE GOSPEL LIGHT, gospel truth. The 9th verse continues saying, “And the Lord shall be king over ALL the earth, in that day shall there be “ONE LORD AND THIS NAME ONE.” Notice, “…and the Lord shall be King.” Here He refers to the Blessing on the earth under the new administration. 

Take a close look at verse 16. Note the close similarity with Matt. 25:31-34. “And it shall PASS THAT EVERYONE that is LEFT OF ALL THE NATIONS WHICH CAME UP AGAINST JERUSALEM.. All nations! Notice this statement signifies something will happen unto ALL NATIONS who come against Jerusalem. When does this transpire? The Battle of Armageddon. When this Battle of Armageddon sets in, that will be the world’s death struggle. Christ’s intervention is when He destroys the beast and his armies along with the entire antichrist system. Why did I read this? Because it’s important. I want you to see this. All people WILL NOT BE EXTERMINATED, nor annihilated at the second coming of Christ to this earth. There shall be some left out of all nations for a purpose. Proof is in the following verse. “And it shall come to pass that EVERYONE THAT IS LEFT OF ALL THE NATIONS which came up against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the Lord, the King, the Lord of Hosts and to keep the Feasts of the Tabernacles. Now who is this group? Certainly he cannot be referring to the Bride. The Bride never came up against Jerusalem, the City of God. In fact the Bride is with him, (Christ) (also the Old Testament saints) when he came to destroy the very thing which did come up against the City of Jerusalem. But don’t forget, of all the groups, the Bride’s position is always in the forefront. She always carries the preeminence in the picture. When Christ pours out His wrath and destroys all these evil doers, He will then, according to Zachariah and Matthews’ account, gather before him THE REST WHICH ARE LEFT. What will happen unto them? What shall be their fate? Will he kill them? Not on your life, not kill, but judge them. Judge them on their moral, social and spiritual principles, how they lived and conducted themselves among their fellowman as a people who just came through this darkest hour called the tribulation. That tribulation is going to bring great anguish, sorrow and turmoil to the human race and if ever a man sought for that which was right, during that hour he had better do so, if he ever hopes to find any mercy in the eyes of God whatsoever. When Christ gathers them before Him, He will judge them as a man would his sheep from his goats. Those on his right hand are the people He finds worthy to remain alive, and again notice His pleasing remarks to the mortal sheep nations (Matt. 25:34). 


 For what purpose did Christ spare these people for his new ireign? Remember those pass from this age into the new 1000 year age STILL IN THEIR MORTAL BODIES. They remained mortal in every respect, receiving no change of body as did all the resurrected Bride and tribulation saints, including of course the resurrected Old Testament saints. Death will never have any more claim on these resurrected people. But those INDIVIDUALS (Sheep) SHALL BE MORTALS. Why they must remain mortal as they pass into that age is what the story of the millennium is all about. Remember according to Rev. 20:1-3 as the age began, Satan was bound 1000 years. Since his being bound, Christ has judged those that were left of all nations. He judges these mortals (Matt. 25:31-46) who, when He was hungry had given Him something to eat. Thirsty and they had given Him drink. In prison they had visited Him. Truly there shall be many a poor soul locked up in that dark hour who will refuse to bow before that devilish antichrist system. There will be many who shall be naked, hungry, thirsty and in prison who could not buy or sell, save those who wore the mark of the beast (Rev. 13:17). During that hour the Bride shall be in heaven. Christ will judge those on the basis of their moral behavior. To the sheep he said, “enter thou into the kingdom that was prepared for these from the foundation of the world”. Yes, the Millennium was prepared for them. That’s their promise, their hope. God has ushered in another age to produce another thing.

 The Bride has already inherited HER KINGDOM. Already she has inherited Eternal Life and been clothed with immortality like her Lord (1 John 3:2). We don’t just hope for this life. IT’S ALREADY OURS. Time awaits for the manifes-tation of it. This is their promise, “ENTER THOU INTO THE KINGDOM WHICH WAS PREPARED FOR THEE FROM THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD.” But to the Goats, those who could not pass the moral and ethical test of judgement, he simply will say, “Depart from me. Ye are cast into everlasting punishment.” 

What does he do with these goats? Notice—He’ll not put them in the Lake of Fire, he MERELY DESTROYS THEIR PHYSICAL EXISTENCE. But potentially they are in the Lake of Fire, their judgment was PASSED RIGHT THEN AND THERE. He simply destroys them fulfilling the scripture in Rev. 19:21 “When he cometh, out of His mouth goes a sharp two-edged sword.” It’s with that word of judgment, He will use it to SMITE THE NATIONS, and cut off the wicked. With that sword proceeding out of His mouth, he will slay the wicked. 


Then with a rod of iron, HE RULES THE NATIONS THAT’S LEFT. (Man. 25:34) What does this rod of iron speak of? It speaks of the sceptre as a symbol of His authority in the kingdom. How many understand what a sceptre is? It’s similar to a small stick carried by kings. When on his throne, he uses it as the emblem of his authority. (Example) Esther 4:11, Remember how Esther placed her life in her own hands when she went in to see the king WHO had not called for her, had he not held out the golden sceptre she could have been put to death.


 Again in Ezek. 37:15-24. The spirit tells Ezekiel to take 2 sticks and write upon one, EPHRAIM on the other, JUDAH and in verse 17, “and join them one to another into one stick and they shall become one in thy hand—here is the sceptre to be restored that will be used by Christ over the 12 tribes of Israel when in verse 24, David my servant shall be King over them. Remember these are not two sticks found in the woods somewhere. It was that broken sceptre that ruled the entire 12 tribes before they were broken into the two houses -(Northern and Southern kingdoms) – which broke the authority over the 12 tribes and that authority will not be restored until Christ comes and rules the 12 tribes in the kingdom age. This is the sceptre that shall rule the nations. It reveals his position of authority. Many times the small stick is decorated with little emblems and things, but when it’s in His hand it’s a rod, a sceptre of divine law by which He shall rule these nations, AND THE PURPOSE OF IT IS THAT HE WILL BRING BACK TO THE EARTH DIVINE KNOWLEDGE, DIVINE LAW, AND DIVINE PRINCIPLE, to these remaining MORTAL PEOPLE from the tribulation period (Matt. 25:34)-these subject people, WHO STILL REMAIN AS MORTAL as they were during that tribulation hour. When Christ has fulfilled that judgment of the nations (Matt. 25:46) probably only a few out of all nations will actually be qualified to pass the test, but remember His purpose in salvaging this remnant. Taking the sheep nations, CHRIST WILL REPOPULATE THE EARTH. That’s why I wanted to have firmly placed in your mind the word REGENERATION, means to RENEW , or make or REBEAR OFFSPRINGS. So it is in that glorious age. Christ is restoring divine law and divine knowledge to fulfill the scripture, “That the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters that cover the sea, (Isa. 11:9) when? Only during that thousand year reign, as Christ sits on the Throne of his Glory in Jerusalem to fulfill all other prophecies saying the law shall go forth from Zion. What law? Divine law, the law shall go forth from Zion and the word of the Lord, NOT THE WORD MESSAGE HEARD FOR 1900 YEARS. Repent and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, THAT’S OUR MESSAGE for our age. That’s to prepare us, but in that glorious day the word to be taught unto these subject mortal people of the nations is what THE PERFECT WILL OF GOD CONSIST OF. — That’s why the true knowledge of God’s law and principles is to establish a social kingdom on earth which will glorify God, again the purpose of the millennium is, while He’s renewing the earth, He ALSO IS IN THE PROCESS OF REINHABITING IT, placing back on it a population of people who can live a thousand years. 

WHILE the devil is bound, there won’t be any beer joints, funeral parlors, divorce courts or even police forces. Know why? BECAUSE CHRIST AND THE BRIDE WILL BE THE POLICE FORCE. I’m not trying to make this sound fantastic or like some fiction story, for if it isn’t absolute scriptures, forget the whole thing! Just remember God never placed all these scriptures in the book for nothing. Don’t think for a moment the Eternal God placed them there without giving somebody an understanding of why they were placed there. Try to realize the millenium is for a definite purpose, and the Bride which is the people called out of this age has a definite important part to play. She is wedded to Christ, and just as He sits on the throne of his glory as King of Kings and Lord of Lords over this earth, WITH HIM SITS HIS WIFE. He is the supreme authority who shall sit in authority and execute righteous judgment. When the king says such and such,his wife will say that’s right, and whatever respective nation she is placed over, her assignment will be to carry out the king’s will. SHE SHALL HAVE THE SAME AUTHORITY WHICH IS INVESTED IN HIM. As his queen, she rules over these subject people. Remember the rod of iron does not mean it’s literally some stick. It’s to symbolize the authority by which Christ will discipline the nations. THESE MORTAL PEOPLE WHO MAKE UP THE SUBJECTS WITHIN THE KINGDOM SHALL MARRY AND BRING INTO THE NEW KINGDOM OFF-SPRINGS. 


 What shall Christ do with these sheep nations which were allowed to pass under the sceptre? Matt. 25:3146. Zach. 14:9-20 Shows only a small percentage of the people of the nations who were spared the judgment of the tribulation period were even allowed to enter into the glorious kingdom age, ONLY A SMALL PERCENTAGE (sheep nations) ENTERED INTO THE AGE WHEN SATAN WAS BOUND (Rev. 20:1-3). But when Satan is loosed for a short period at the closing of the Millenium to roam the earth, the population of earth will have grown into such a TREMENDOUS FIGURE that just the number deceived by Satan at the close of the 1000 year reign was a number as the SANDS OF THE SEA (so large they could not be numbered). What happened from the beginning of the age unto the closing shows one main reason these sheep nations found grace in the eyes of the Lord. One thing is certain THIS MULTITUDE NEVER ENTERED INTO THE AGE AS SHEEP NATIONS. These mortal subjects who were permitted entrance into the age after the tribulation period closed out, WERE CALLED UPON TO REPOPULATE AND REPLENISH THE EARTH — and with longevity of life restored back unto the multitudes, this was accomplished. Longevity of life was not lost until after the flood came. Methuselah lived to be 969 years old—before the flood, Genesis is full of human beings who lived to be hundreds of years old. During the Millenium reign this longevity of life span will be restored. All these at the close of the Millenium reign who was tested by Satan ARE THE WORLD CREATURES – borne during the 1000 years reign – (A NUMBER AS THE SANDS OF THE SEAS). 

The scripture teaches in Matt. 22:30, in the resurrection there is neither marrying nor giving in marriage, but in this respect the resurrected saints are as angels. Yet there is an untold number of humans born during this age who alone will be deceived by Satan. IT WOULD BE TOTALLY IMPOSSIBLE FOR THE RESURRECTED SAINTS (OLD TESTAMENT, BRIDE, OR TRIBULATION SAINTS) TO BEAR CHILDREN, since all were in the resurrection except the tiny percentage who were translated. These can neither marry or give in marriage. Then who shall be called upon to begin this fulfilment of Rev. 20:8?

 The mortal people of the sheep nations of Matt. 25:31-34 are the only ones within the kingdom who can — and these are called upon to repopulate the earth — Remember one of the definitions of the term REGENERATION. Christ spoke of in Matt. 19: (I). “re-” means to repeat something that has already been done at least once – do again, do over (2). generation means dealing with birth of human beings.

 Will children be born during the millenium reign, someone asks? Tell me how shall children play at the holes of asps and weaned children crawl over cockatrice dens (Isa. 11:8) and little children lead animals (Isa. 11:6) and furthermore how else will there be a number as the sand of the sea produced who are deceived in Rev. 20:8 — IF THERE IS NOT AN UNTOLD NUMBERS OF CHILDREN BORN DURING THE MILLENIUM who grow up and fulfill the number as the sand of the sea deceived by Satan at the close of the age? If little children are not born during the 1000 years reign – one thing is for sure this number was not found in Matt. 25:34 at the beginning of the 1000 year reign. 

Yes, there will be many, and there will be children born by these people to fulfill scriptures. Scriptures such as Isaiah 11: 6-8. 


 700 B.C. Isaiah looked down through the telescope of time and saw this glorious 1000 years reign, and he prophesied about this Christ. “And there shall come forth a rod of the stem of Jesse and A BRANCH shall grow out of his roots and the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him,” Isaiah referred to the Christ, that spirit of Wisdom, the same spirit of wisdom that was on Solomon is going to be on him only in the FULLNESS.

 Remember it was on Solomon, who in type portrayed the millenium wisdom. Yet the spirit’s account of understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord shall give him a quick understanding in the fear of the Lord. NOTICE HOW CHRIST, THE NEW KING, shall judge — HE DOESN’T NEED ANY TATTLE-TELLERS RUNNING TO HIM telling on so and so, saying they did this and such. No sir, He shall make Him a quick understand-ing unto the fear of the Lord and HE SHALL NOT JUDGE AFTER THE SIGHT OF HIS EYES, neither REPROVE AFTER THE HEARING OF HIS EAR, BUT WITH RIGHTEOUSNESS HE SHALL DISCERN IT FROM THE HEART. With righteousness shall He judge the poor and reprove with equity, equality for the meek of the earth. Remember in the Psalms it says, “Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth.” Yes for the meek of the earth and He shall smite the earth with the rod of His mouth. THIS ONLY MEANS IT’S THE WORD OF HIS AUTHORITY, and with the blood of his lips, (that’s the sword whereby he shall slay the wicked), and righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins and faithfulness the girdle of his waist.


 The wolf shall dwell also with the Iamb, Isa. 1 1:6. Today you can’t turn a herd of sheep loose with wolves. I once had an uncle who raised sheep on a ranch out west. Many were the sleepless nights he spent trying to keep the wolves from ripping the flock to pieces. The bears were just as bad, constantly killing sheep. It seemed they killed sheep just for the pleasure of it. Flinging the helpless creatures in every direction. Down through the flock they would go ripping and chewing them as they were bedding down for the night. But what did it say here? (Isa. 11:6, the WOLF shall also dwell with the LAMB (think of it), a nice herd of sheep lying down and the WOLVES COMING AND LYING RIGHT DOWN IN THEIR MIDST—SEE IT. This could never happen today because Satan rules the ENVIRONMENT OF THE EARTH, and there is enmity in the animal kingdom, and note the leopard shall lie down with the kid, and the calf with the young lion, (you certainly couldn’t expect that now) AND THE FATLING TOGETHER, WITH A LITTLE CHILD SHALL LEAD THEM. Just imagine a little 3 or 4 year old child playing out here in the open with the animals running loose at will and a LITTLE CHILD just leading them. Oh! What a glorious day ahead. When Christ and his wife rule in the next age. Remember had the fall never taken place in the Garden of Eden, animals today would play with the little children. Oh yes the cow and the bear shall feed together with their young ones, and lie down together. Amen. And the lion shall eat straw like the ox, THE NURSING CHILD shall play at the hole of the asp. Just a little toddling babe, not hardly a year old, barely weaned from its mother’s breast, will crawl over the hole of the asp and play. I don’t know what type of little varmit the cockatrice is, but in that glorious age a little child shall have no need of fear. This object (of the scripture) illustrate plainly that even the LITTLE SUCKLING CHILD who can’t walk, but barely crawl upon its little tummy to the hole of the asp and play over the hole of the asp, SIMPLY GOES TO SHOW NOTHING SHALL HURT NOR DESTROY IN THAT AGE. This is actually the picture which the Lord is trying to portray here. The point is in the 1000 year reign THERE WILL BE THE NURSING CHILD, THE WEANED CHILD, THE SMALL CHILD WHICH ARE ALL IN THE ONE PICTURE. Someone once contested me for my teaching this, Bro. Jackson, there aren’t going to be any BABIES BORN during the millenium. That scripture refers to little babies who died, went to glory, and become part of the Bride of Christ. THEY WILL PLAY LIKE THAT, I said, what? Don’t tell me that you mean God is going to let a little baby remain a baby for a thousand years to fulfill his scripture? NOT SO, he’s not an unjust God. God won’t allow a small child to remain a baby throughout a thousand years just to fulfill his scripture, He’ll be an unjust God if he did. Let’s finish reading this interesting passage. “And the NURSING CHILD shall play on the hole of the asp and the WEANED CHILD shall put his hand on the cockatrice’s den?” (this a most poisonous creature) “THEY SHALL NOT HURT NOR DESTROY IN ALL MY HOLY MOUNTAIN,” means his holy kingdom “for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the water that covers the sea and in that day shall there be a root of Jesse who shall stand for an end sign of the people, to him shall the nations seek and his rest shall be glorious, Amen.” The people that Christ will rule over will be people in which he will have instilled these divine laws and the true knowledge that God wants placed back in the earth. Remember today the world knows all about Eden and it’s being cultivated and educated in every university. What is it? It’s Satan’s way of having his knowledge and his way proclaimed today. But in that day, under the rule of King Jesus and his Bride, the knowledge of the Lord shall be taught back again, divine laws will be taught back in the earth. No wonder the wild animal kingdom will then lie down in peace. Through (Hosea 2:18) the Eternal God states “in that day I will make a covenant between man and the beast of the field.” What will be this covenant? He’ll take away the enmity that is in the heart of the beast, and when that enmity is taken away and Satan is bound, no longer, can the adversary, the agitator, the instigator cause trouble, the evil spirit will leave the animal kingdom and he shall dwell in peace. Then will the lion walk with the bear, or walk about the cows, or the lamb. All the animal kingdom will walk together in peace. Nothing shall press upon them and influence evil upon their nature. This animal kingdom will then respect man, who is to have dominion over him in God’s kingdom. THESE MUST BE INSTILLED BACK INTO THE EARTH. 

WHAT IS GOD ACCOMPLISHING THROUGH THIS MILLENNIUM BY THESE DIVINE LAWS? He is miraculously renewing the earth with a new social order of people who are not guilty of defiling the earth with perversion, evil, vice, drunkenness, murders, and things of that evil nature. YET HIS SUBJECTS ARE MORTAL CREA-TURES. The earth for a thousand years will be REPOPULATED BY A RACE OF HUMANS THAT ARE LIVING UNDER THE RULE OF A DIVINE GOD, where God’s law of knowledge will be instilled in their hearts. Remember though this thousand years is a glorious period of time, IT IS NOT YET THE PERFECT AGE. 

Listen carefully Isaiah 65:17. Isaiah looked down through the scope of time— SEES THE DAY COMING WHEN THE LORD WOULD HAVE NEW HEAVEN AND NEW EARTH. Give me your close attention. Isaiah saw that Glorious perfect eternal age, but in order to view it, he looked afar off into the future, down through the law age, beyond the law age into the church age and beyond the church age into the millennium and BEYOND THE MILLENNIUM—THERE HE SAW THIS GREAT ETERNAL AGE. Watch him looking at THIS AGE through the binoculars of time, peering into that great eternal age. Isaiah 65:17. Behold I create new heavens and a new earth, you can connect this scripture with II Peter 3:10. Here you will learn the new heavens and the new earth WILL STILL BE OF THE CELESTIAL BODIES and still the same universe, and the earth will still be the same old ball of clay. RENEWING IT DOESN’T MEAN GOD IS IN THE PROCESS OF RECREATING THE EARTH in the ALL THE MOLECULES, and all THE SUBSTANCES AND MATTER THIS OLD EARTH CONSISTS OF. No, the point is, he is merely renewing the earth for a divine purpose. For some reason THIS EARTH has fallen from His divine purpose, it becomes horribly defiled, through bearing the stain of sin, evil and violence. Through His wrath at the close of the 1000 years reign HE HAS ALREADY DESTROYED EVIL, destroyed the very devil who has caused it. This was accomplished (Rev. 20:10) before He could begin to fulfill Isa. 65:17. So recreating the earth, or renewing the earth, is merely to lift it back up and re-establish it back into a divine relationship. Take man when he fell. Christ makes a new creature out of him. The scripture says we are a NEW CREATURE in Christ Jesus, but DID HE ACTUALLY DESTROY YOU in order to make you a new creature? He did not. He is simply remolding you, reshaping you, so that you will reflect Christ in like nature, rather than show the attributes of that fallen creature. The same is true with the new earth and the new heavens. God says, Behold I CREATE new heavens and new earth (Isa. 65:17) the former earth and heavens WHICH EXISTED IN THE PRIOR AGE (1000 YEARS REIGN) SHALL NOT BE REMEMBERED NOR COME TO MIND, Thanks be to God. When we do finally get into that great Eternal age, Isaiah saw (after the Millennium) all these other ages in the past will not come back to our rememberance. First we had to pass through all these other ages to get to that eternal age. Isaiah is still looking at that eternal age- “Be glad and rejoice forever in that which I create for Behold I create Jerusalem a rejoicing and her people a joy, and I will rejoice in Jerusalem. Think of it! Take for a moment the natural city of JERUSALEM AS IT EXISTED DURING THE TIME OF THE PROPHETS, there were continual adversaries which constantly came up against it, and every prophet that rose up wondered what would be the state of this. The state, the outcome, was already in existence during the time of the prophecy. Recognizing this, little did the prophets know that as the city would endure many storms, and battles even during the law age, that when the church (grace) age would come, JERUSALEM WOULD LAY IN DESOLATION UNTIL THE TIME OF THE GENTILES WAS FULFILLED (Lk.21 -24) In the millennium the city will be lifted back up, and become the great city of the King “And I will rejoice in Jerusalem and joy in my people and the voice of WEEPING SHALL NO MORE be heard in her (in the eternal age) NOR the voice of crying, “Now watch.” As he looked at that age of the new heavens and the new earth, we do know that in that eternal age, there will be NO MORE BIRTH SUCH AS WAS IN THE 1000 YEAR REIGN. NEITHER WILL THERE BE ANY MORE DYING OR CRYING. WAS THERE ANY DYING IN THE 1000 YEAR REIGN? SOME. But none in the eternal age. Watch the prophet. We realize here THERE WERE SEVERAL AGES COVERED IN THESE SCRIPTURES. Before we could get to that eternal age where there would be neither dying, crying or births. Watch very carefully the wording of the prophet, how and where he placed things. “THERE shall be NO MORE(from then on)-thence an infant of days—another translation. and there shall be no more thence, means from then on, AND END OF DAYS, nor an OLD MAN THAT HATH IN THAT DAY (in the Great Eternal age) there will be no more OLD MAN THAT HATH NOT LIVED OUT HIS DAYS (such as happened back under the millennium) In that eternalage there shall be no more thence and an end of days nor an old man that hath not filled his days. In the very next phrase, Isaiah has placed it back fully into the millennium saying, for the child shall die an hundred years old! Here he is speaking exclusively of what happens during the millenium. Notice what is to take place is projected into the Eternal Age, FOR THE CHILD SHALL DIE AN HUNDRED YEARS OLD. 


 Recall as the millennium begins you have people of the mortal realm that will marry and from that union there shall be multitudes of children born. As the millennium started out, probably just a few people made the age—by the time we have gone far into the 1000 years, God will have restored longevity of life. Recall Satan is bound, the one who actually is death. In that 1000 year reign death WILL BE THE PENALTY OF THE ROD of Christ. This will be constantly used solely for one purpose-that is, if over a period of time one who is born in that 1000 year period for some reason refuses to be disciplined by the rod. Remember the millennium is not the perfect age. You must understand He rules with a ROD OF IRON. This goes to show that there is a hereditary nature passed from child to child that must be constantly disciplined by divine teachings and laws. So this should make it very simple and easy to understand why it says “A child shall die an hundred years old, meaning a person will be considered just a child at 100 years old, because he is supposed to live throughout the reign, he lived but only 1/10 of his time. At 100 years old today, he is an old man in our age, but at 100 in that age-he is considered a small child seeing he lived out only 1/10 of his life span. This shows God will not discipline or execute WITH DEATH anyone until they have lived LONG ENOUGH (100 YEARS) to BE GIVEN A FULL CHANCE to really prove themselves (to be something or they have no intentions of obeying God Laws. Let’s finish reading the verse, “For the child shall die an hundred years old but the sinner, meaning the transgressor being an hundred years old shall be accursed,” So you see, longevity of life will be completely restored- death will never occur such as it occasionally occurs during the millennium) when it was used for the last measure of discipline and that not before the individual shad reached 100 years old. Satan now bound, there is no reason for death. No reason for people to get sick and die of cancer, heart trouble, TB. No, Satan is bound during that 1000 years while CHRIST IF RULING AND REIGNING. WHAT WILL DEATH BE USED FOR? Death is merely used as the penalty for refusing to bow to the rod of Christ. Remember this, Christ will never execute that punishment of death on a 12 year old child, or a 25 or even 50 year old child. Not until he is 100 years old. He will then be allowing man to live -a thousand years. Remember from the Garden of Eden unto just prior to the flood one man lived almost a thousand years, Methuselah lived 969 years. Why? It only goes to show that a thousand years is considered nothing, but because mankind was going away from the garden, man fell far short of a thousand years. In the millennium it’s the age of renewing and establishing back into the earth all of God’s divine laws and knowledge. Christ will allow these mortal people the blessing under his reign of living a thousand years. Picture the Bride and the Old Testament saints immortal reigning with Him in His glory, no they’re not marrying, but MORTAL SUBJECTS gathered from all nations during the tribulation period will still remain mortal. He will judge them, and allow them to start with long fertility of life—Just to live and enter into His kingdom, to live under His longevity of life to those people FOR HE IS LIFE, that’s why He can say, “Enter thou into the joys or enter thou into the kingdom that was prepared for thee from the foundation of the world” See, it’s not something that was cooked up over night. It had been in the mind of God before the foundation of the world.

 As longevity of life is granted to them, Isaiah could look into that day which took the millennium to fulfill its purpose of recreating the earth and everything. In the great Eternal age (Age after Millennium) there will be no more infants, no more old men or anything nor an old man that has (as in the millennium) not lived his day. I would have to say if we are living in the day just prior to the coming of Christ, there are people living now THAT WOULD NEVER DIE according to the word of God. All depends on how close we are living to His coming. But to those who find a favor to be his subjects, he will hold that blessing over them and they will live a thousand years to enjoy the blessings of his millennium age. TO THAT MAN OR TO THAT WOMAN WHO FOR SOME REASON FIND IT IMPOS-SIBLE TO DISCIPLINE THEMSELVES, HE WILL DESTROY THEM WITH DEATH but again I repeat, HE WILL NOT DESTROY THEM UNTIL THEY HAVE AT LEAST REACHED A HUNDRED YEARS OLD. Then they shall still be considered as a child. Oh that child, that sinner that’s a hundred year old WILL BE ACCURSED. See, that’s THE PENALTY OF THAT ROD, he’ll rule them with- A rod of iron! So death is just the penalty. DEATH IS NOT A THING THAT REIGNS AT LARGE causing funeral parlors. No there will be none. There won’t be any weeping over those that transgress. I can see them as they’re executed. They’re just removed from the scene. No funeral home to take them to and no mourners or weeping for them. No Sir, Not in that day. It’s the day of righteousness and equality. Think of the animal kingdom and the beauty of the many, many scriptures I could give. The point is that in that day it is an age of a thousand years under the reign of Christ and through these subjects, people, God’s divine laws rule and reign. In that day the desert shall blossom as a rose. 


Many people say, Bro. Jackson, I just don’t see how everybody could live there? There are too many saints of the ages and when you get them placed over the earth, there won’t be enough room. I say this—Man takes more room lying down than he does standing up. Did you ever think about it? Did you realize that only one third of this earth’s surface today is dry ground? And did you ever think that on practically every major continent you have vast deserts and arid countries? Houses are very far apart. He said that in that day he’ll take the curse off the earth and the earth will no longer hold its increase. This is the day that the reaper will overtake him that soweth the grain. In other words, just ONE CONTINUOUS REAPING AND SOWING. Why, that’s the blessings of God in an age! No food shortage! So you won’t need to worry about not having enough room. No Sir. God will clear up all these desert countries, rivers will flow through dry places. The desert shall blossom as a rose. Man does this now through irrigation, but when the wrath of God starts and God begins to shake this earth do you realize He will be destroying much wickedness and evil of mankind. At the same time he will begin to remold and shape the planet for the millennium. God does a two-fold purpose at one time, doesn’t he? Yes there will be plenty of room and the earth will not withhold her increase. It will yield its increase. The tree of the field shall yield its increase, and there will be an abundance of space for those fortunate enough to be in this thousand year reign. In closing this paragraph we leave you with four other scriptures you may study, Amos 9:14, Ezek. 34:24-27, Zech. 8:14 and Micah 4:1-5, in order to see the greatness of the age. 


 Shortly after the millennium reign comes the Eternal Age, which is preceded by The Great White Throne Judgment, (Rev. 20:11-15) during which God shall call from the earth all the wicked dead to be judged according to their dead written in the books—Rev. 20:12. Note—Verse 12 states that the wicked are judged from the books according to their deeds, but WHO IS JUDGED FROM THE BOOK OF LIFE AND WHY IS THE BOOK OF LIFE OPENED? Is it possible that some of the wicked dead are actually recorded in the Book of Life? NO! Positively not! All who are raised in the second resurrection and come to the Great White Throne, according to Rev. 20:6, shows this to be a resurrection of no power. HERE AT THIS LAST JUDGMENT THE WICKED ANGELS and THE WICKED DEAD SHALL BE JUDGED. 

The immortal saints of all ages shall be present to judge those from their particular age and NOT ONE of these classified in the wicked dead will have his name in the Book of Life, then for what purpose was the Book of Life opened? Was its purpose to screen the pages and see if someone who came up in the second resurrection was entered there? NO! THE PURPOSE OF ITS BEING OPENED IS FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE MILLENNIUM SAINTS OR BELIEVERS who were not deceived by Satan when he was permitted to rise from the bottomless pit, enter at the dose of the millennium age and deceive a vast number recorded as the sands of the sea, Rev. 20:8. These deceived by Satan were destroyed by the Eternal God recorded in verse 9 and they also shall come up in the second resurrection with the wicked dead of all ages, but there is a vast number, no doubt, also who were not deceived and like those in the BEGINNING of the thousand year reign who had to pass the judgment of nations of Matt. 25 before they were allowed to become sheep nations and enter INTO the reign, likewise, must, at the CLOSE of the reign, pass the Great White Throne judgment of Rev. 20:11-15 in order to enter into the great Eternal Age, Rev. 21:1-2 and Isa. 65:17.

 Only the wicked dead of all ages and those born in the thousand year reign could possibly qualify for the Book of Life, seeing they are the only two classes left to be judged, and it is out of the question to consider any wicked dead being in the Book of Life, having come up in the Second Resurrection. The millennium people who were not deceived by Satan in Rev. 20:7-9 are the only ones possible who – –could be recorded in the Book Of Life for all other saints present have met their particular judgment and passed. All who did not have their name in the Book of Life were cast into the Lake of Fire, which is the Second Death. All others entered into the Eternal Age to be with God throughout Eternity. SO, THE BOOK OF LIFE AT THE WICKED DEAD JUDGEMENT WAS FOR THE MILLENNIUM SAINTS ONLY.
