Sealing Before Hurting
HOW IMPORTANT IS IT TO SEE THE EARTH AS SYMBOLIC OF THE CHURCH?
Isa 24:20 The EARTH shall REEL TO AND FRO LIKE A DRUNKARD, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall FALL, and not rise again.
Re 14:8 And there followed another angel, saying, BABYLON IS FALLEN, is FALLEN, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the WINE of the wrath of her fornication.
Ps 107:27 THEY REEL TO AND FRO, and stagger like a DRUNKEN MAN, and are at their wits’ end.
Re 11:6 These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to SMITE the EARTH with all PLAGUES, as often as they will.
Re 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of HER , my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her PLAGUES.
Re 17:2 With whom the kings of the EARTH have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made DRUNK with the wine of HER fornication.
Re 17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH
Re 17:18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the EARTH .
Re 19:2 For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the EARTH with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.
La 2:15 All that pass by clap their hands at thee; they hiss and wag their head at the daughter of Jerusalem, saying, Is this the city that men call The perfection of beauty, The joy of the whole EARTH ?
Jer 50:23 How is the hammer of the whole EARTH cut asunder and broken! how is BABYLON become a desolation among the nations!
Isa 33:9 The EARTH mourneth and languisheth: Lebanon is ashamed and hewn down: Sharon is like a wilderness; and Bashan and Carmel shake off their fruits.
HURT : GOD’S JUDGMENT ON THE CORPORATE BODY. ELECT ARE NOT HURT SINCE THEY COME OUT OF TRIBULATION.
Jer 25:6 And go not after OTHER GODS to serve them, and to worship them, and provoke me not to anger with the works of your hands; and I will < do you no HURT >.
Jer 7:6 If ye oppress not the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, and shed not innocent blood in this place, neither walk after other gods to your HURT :
Jer 25:7 Yet ye have not hearkened unto me, saith the LORD; that ye might provoke me to anger with the works of your hands to your own HURT .
Re 11:5 And if any man will HURT them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will HURT them, he must in this manner be killed.
Ec 5:13 There is a sore evil which I have seen under the sun, namely , riches kept for the owners thereof to their HURT .
Mr 16:18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not HURT them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
Re 2:11 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be HURT of the second death.
Re 6:6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou HURT not the oil and the wine. (Elect escape judgment. Tribulation cut short for them?)
Re 9:4 And it was commanded them that they should not HURT the grass of the earth , neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have NOT the SEAL of God in their foreheads. (Again, Elect escape the hurt because they’ve already been sealed . Only the unsaved in the body are under judgment)
Re 9:10 And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to HURT men five months.
Re 9:19 For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do HURT.
Re 11:5 And if any man will HURT them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will HURT them, he must in this manner be killed .
IS GOD SAVING ( SEALING) TODAY? DOES THE BIBLE TEACH ANYWHERE THAT GOD IS SAVING <OUTSIDE> THE LOCAL CHURCHES?
Re 7:2 And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to HURT THE EARTH and the sea,
Re 7:3 Saying, HURT not the EARTH , neither the <sea>, nor the <trees>, till we have SEALED the servants of our God in their foreheads.
Re 7:4 And I heard the number of them which were SEALED : and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel. (It seems God could not HURT the EARTH (corporate body) until ALL Elect had been saved) .
Eph 1:13 In whom ye also trusted , after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were SEALED with that holy Spirit of promise,
2Co 1:22 Who hath also SEALED us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.
Eph 4:30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are SEALED unto the day of redemption.
Rev 7:8 Of the tribe of Zabulon were SEALED twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were SEALED twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were SEALED twelve thousand.
Rev 7:9 AFTER THIS I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude , which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; (If this great multitude is another round of believers yet to be saved, then they would not be included in the 144,000 would they? And this would be contrary to many other statements in the Bible. Therefore we have to understand this multitude as the same group of people who were sealed prior to the hurting. AFTER they are sealed, John sees them as a great multitude).
Rev 7:14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation , and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. (It would then be this multitude, those sealed , who escape the hurt by coming out of tribulation).
DOES BABYLON = <LOCAL CHURCHES>? HOW COULD THAT BE IF THE BLOOD OF ALL THE PROPHETS IS FOUND IN HER?
Re 18:21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city BABYLON be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.
Re 18:24 And in HER was found the blood of prophets , and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth .
Lu 11:49 Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute:
Lu 11:50 That the blood of ALL the prophets , which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation ;
Lu 11:51 From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias , (Zacharias = Jehovah remembers: a type of the last of the martyrs?) which perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation .
Re 11:7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them , and kill them .
Re 16:6 For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets , and thou hast given them blood to drink ; for they are worthy.
Re 19:2 For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore , which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand .
Ps 97:10 Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints ; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.
Jer 2:34 Also in thy skirts is found the blood of the souls of the poor innocents : I have not found it by secret search, but upon all these.
Re 6:9 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:
Re 6:10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth ?
Re 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
Ps 58:10 The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance : he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.
EARTH = CHURCH
HURT = JUDGMENT ON THE BODY
SEALING = SALVATION OF THE ELECT PRIOR TO THE JUDGMENT ON BABYLON
BABYLON = UNSAVED BODY WHO’S SHED BLOOD FROM THE BEGINNING.
Because the Bible is now unsealed, it seems, God’s vengeance on Babylon means that NEVER AGAIN will the Elect (now, New Jerusalem) be subject to deceit by false prophets because these teachers have been and are being exposed. This New Body is being cleansed, purified, made whole as it comes to perfection in Christ.
