JOEL (PART THREE)

Joel 3:1 “For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem,”
Joel 3:2 “I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for My People and for My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted My land.”
Joel 3:3 “And they have cast lots for My People; and have given a boy for an harlot, and sold a girl for wine, that they might drink.”
Joel 3:4 “Yea, and what have ye to do with Me, O Tyre, and Zidon, and all the coasts of Palestine? will ye render Me, swiftly and speedily will I return your recompence upon your own head;”
Jerusalem (Strong’s 3389) founded peaceful; (from Strong’s 3384) to flow as water (to rain); to lay or throw (especially an arrow, ie. to shoot), to point out (as if by aiming the finger), to teach , and (from Strong’s 7999) to be safe (in mind, body or estate); to reciprocate, be at peace, that is perfect, perform, (make) prosper), recompense, render, requite, make restitution, restore, reward.

We are back again here in the book of Joel which is regarding the captivity and pointed specifically to the house of Judah to the first captivity which happened in history under King Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon. We will soon be under the captivity of the king of Babylon behind all confusion, Satan, when he comes in person as in Revelation 9:5 for the five month period here on earth. Right now today God’s People are so scattered and mixed among those that claim they are of the tribe of Judah, the Kenites or sons of Cain as in Revelation 2:9 and Revelation 3:9. Look at Jerusalem today split into three divisions for the religions of Judaism, Islam and Christianity where there is no peace in the city which means founded of peace in the Hebrew. Remember the Word tells us to look for signs of the end of times for our warning or admonition:

I Corinthians 10:11 “Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.”

This is why we need to pay attention here in Joel as this is looking forward to our final generation of the fig tree of Mark 13:28 so we are not deceived. The boy will be sold for an harlot and a girl for wine, and this means spiritually, as people that want to drink of the lies and false teaching of religion that pull God’s People away from God’s Word. If something does not jive is not in God’s Word, it is not of God and is of Satan! Let’s now go here:

I Corinthians 10:14 “Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry.”
I Corinthians 10:15 “I speak as to wise men; judge ye what I say.”
I Corinthians 10:16 “The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ?”
I Corinthians 10:17 “For we being many are one bread, and one body: for we are all partakers of that one bread.”
I Corinthians 10:18 “Behold Israel after the flesh: are not they which eat of the sacrifices partakers of the altar?”
I Corinthians 10:19 “What say I then? that the idol is any thing, or that which is offered in sacrifice to idols is any thing?”
I Corinthians 10:20 “But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils.”
I Corinthians 10:21 “Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.”

The subject here is idolatry or basically anything that is not in God’s Word and then mixed in with Truth. This is the most dangerous and the very way Satan seeps into houses of worship, churches and so forth. There is One Jesus Christ and One Word of God. You cannot have it both ways. Choose either the traditions of men or religion or choose God and His Word. For example, the rapture or fly away that is taught so much today and taught in churches when God tells us HE is against those that teach His children to fly as in Ezekiel 13:20 covering up God’s truth. They sacrifice to devils is quoted here from the Song of Moses the victory Song that the overcomers at the end are singing on their way to heaven as Revelation 15:13:

Deuteronomy 31:30 “And Moses spake in the ears of all the congregation of Israel the words of this song, until they were ended.”
Deuteronomy 32:1 “Give ear, O ye heavens, and I will speak; And hear, O earth, the words of my mouth.”
Deuteronomy 32:17 “They sacrificed unto devils, not to GOD; To gods whom they knew not, To new gods that came newly up, Whom your fathers feared not.”
Deuteronomy 32:18 “Of the Rock That begat thee thou art unmindful, And hast forgotten GOD That formed thee.”

Moses spoke this song out loud and teaches us today if you know all the chain of events that happened, you should be good to go at the end knowing Who our Rock is and then who the false rock, Satan, claiming to be God as in II Thessalonians Chapter 2. Now let’s go here:

Jeremiah 25:1 “The word that came to Jeremiah concerning all the People of Judah in the fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, that was the first year of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon;”
Jeremiah 25:2 “The which Jeremiah the prophet spake unto all the People of Judah, and to all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, saying,”
Jeremiah 25:15 “For thus saith the LORD God of Israel unto me; ‘Take the wine cup of this fury at My hand, and cause all the nations, to whom I send thee, to drink it.”
Jeremiah 25:16 “And they shall drink, and be moved, and be mad, because of the sword that I will send among them.’”
Jeremiah 25:17 “Then took I the cup at the LORD’S hand, and made all the nations to drink, unto whom the LORD had sent me:”
Jeremiah 25:18 “To wit, Jerusalem, and the cities of Judah, and the kings thereof, and the princes thereof, to make them a desolation, an astonishment, an hissing, and a curse; as it is this day;”
Jeremiah 25:22 “And all the kings of Tyrus, and all the kings of Zidon, and the kings of the isles which are beyond the sea.”

Back here in Jeremiah God is warning the children of both the house of Judah and Israel, here specifically Judah that they will go into captivity. The one that took them as God told them was king of Babylon, Nebuchadrezzar. God then is warning them that wine cup of God’s wrath. HE is angry because the people have gone so far away from Him and not listening to His words that the gentiles, or nations, will drink along with them. This is more specifically looking to us today as we are learn from the past things in the Word for our admonition or our warning for these end times. Then here why we came here the people of Jerusalem and of Judah and long with them the kings of Tyrus and of Zidon. This is as in Joel 3:4 and their payment or recompence they brought on themselves. So when something bad happens in your life, remind yourself of what you did to accomplish the outcome. God is fair in all things and will pay us accordingly. Go to Him asking Heavenly Father’s forgiveness in Jesus’s name and try and sin no more. It does not give license to sin, but you have that freedom that Jesus gave us for that most costly price of His blood on the cross for one and all sins, but we have to do our part. We have to take action talking and praying to dear God with respectfully and be honest, He knows what you are thinking even before you ask Him! So the cities pointed to are the ones that were the world trade centers, as New York City is the world trade center today for all commerce and know what happened on that fateful day of 9-11-01. Let’s go here and learn more:

Ezekiel 28:1 “The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,”
Ezekiel 28:2 “Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, ‘Thus saith the Lord GOD; ‘Thus saith the Lord GOD; ‘Because thine heart is lifted up, and thou hast said, ‘I am a GOD, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas;’ yet thou art a man, and not GOD. though thou set thine heart as the heart of God:”
Ezekiel 28:3 “Behold, thou art wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that they can hide from thee:”
Ezekiel 28:4 “With thy wisdom and with thine understanding thou hast gotten thee riches, and hast gotten gold and silver into thy treasures:”
Ezekiel 28:5 “By thy great wisdom and by thy traffick hast thou increased thy riches, and thine heart is lifted up because of thy riches:”
Ezekiel 28:6 “Therefore’ thus saith the Lord GOD; ‘Because thou hast set thine heart as the heart of God;”
Ezekiel 28:7 “Behold, therefore I will bring strangers upon thee, the terrible of the nations: and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of thy wisdom, and they shall defile thy brightness.”
Ezekiel 28:8 “They shall bring thee down to the pit, and thou shalt die the deaths of them that are slain in the midst of the seas,”
Ezekiel 28:9 “Wilt thou yet say before Him That slayeth thee, “I am God?’ but thou shalt be a man, and no GOD, in the hand of Him That slayeth thee.”
Ezekiel 28:10 “Thou shalt die the deaths of the uncircumcised by the hand of strangers: for I have spoken if, saith the Lord GOD,’”
Tyrus (Strong’s 6685) a fast; (from Strong’s 6684) to cover over (the mouth), i.e. to fast.

The subject here is Satan, and his title the king of Tyrus, meaning to cover over the mouth or to fast. This happened way back in the beginning when Satan, as the serpent, deceived both Eve and then Adam by having them cover over the word of God, the Truth, lying to them and deceived them as his first attempt in this earth age trying to destroy Jesus Who would come through the woman’s, Eve’s, seed or offspring as in Genesis 3:15. That battle then, the enmity between the woman’s Seed, the first part of this first prophesy happened when Jesus’s heel was bruised and then at the end of the Lord’s Day, the thousand year period coming after Jesus return when Satan’s role is no longer needed by God for our correction back to Him. God then here is admonishing Satan because Satan in the first earth age as in Revelation 12:1-4 because his wisdom, beauty and talents including his role of one of the cherubims that were supposed to protect God’s throne, Satan sat in God’s throne. Satan then sitting as a God in the midst of the seas, meaning God’s people as in Revelation 17:15 the waters are God’s people. Satan is wiser than Daniel and we know in Daniel:

Daniel 1:1 “In the third year of the reign of Jehoiakim king of Judah came Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon unto Jerusalem, and besieged it.”
Daniel 1:19 “And the king communed with them; and among them all was found none like Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah: therefore stood they before the king.”
Daniel 1:20 “And in all matters of wisdom and understanding, that the king enquired of them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers that were in all his realm.”

The subject is Judah going into captivity and the end times prophesy laying a foundation for the Book of Revelation. Then the king of Babylon found Daniel and his three friends ten times wiser than the religious community, the magicians and astrologers, in Babylon. If we only use approximately ten percent of our brain in the flesh, then Daniel and his three companions had total recall. Satan was even wiser than Daniel, as we know God created him the full pattern. Because of this wisdom Satan used it deceitfully by making lots of profit and having the entire world during the first earth age worship him saying that he was a God and believed that he was! God then condemns Satan to death of his soul, remember Satan never born of a woman, but a cherubim angel that protected God’s throne. God then mocks Satan say that he is no God, but will die a very humble and lowly death. Let’s continue here:

Ezekiel 28:12 “Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, ‘Thus saith the Lord GOD; “Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty,”
Ezekiel 28:13 “Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou was created.”
Ezekiel 28:14 “Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.”
Ezekiel 28:15 “Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.”
Ezekiel 28:16 “By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.”
Ezekiel 28:17 “Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.”
Ezekiel 28:18 “Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.”
Ezekiel 28:19 “All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more.’’”

God is then reminding us with some more information about Satan and what happened in the first earth age. Satan was made the sum, meaning the perfect pattern, full of wisdom and beauty. Then here we are in the Garden of Eden Satan having the beauty as the anointed cherubim so we learn Satan’s role before his fall. Then sin or iniquity found in Satan when instead of protecting God’s seat, Satan thought he was a God and sat in it! Then because of Satan’s actions, God condemns Satan to be burned from ashes from within, remember God is a consuming fire as in Hebrews 12:29 and will destroy Satan at the end of the Lord’s day as here:

Revelation 20:7 “And when the thousand years are expired Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,”
Revelation 20:8 “And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.”
Revelation 20:9 “And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.”
Revelation 20:11 “And I saw a great white throne, and Him That sat on it, from Whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.”
Revelation 20:12 “And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.”
Revelation 20:13 “And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.”
Revelation 20:14 “And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.”
Revelation 20:15 “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”

So after the Lord’s Day, the thousand year period after this earth age ends begins when we are changed to spiritual bodies as in I Corinthians 15:52 if living in the flesh. The flesh age ends and the spiritual age begins because flesh and blood cannot get into heaven, and we all go for judgment, both good and bad. Remember to continually repent and keep yourself straight in God’s Word so you are not deceived by Satan when he makes that short five month appearance as in Revelation 9:5. Satan is the only son by name that is sentenced to death as here:

II Thessalonians 2:1 “Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto Him.”
II Thessalonians 2:2 “That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter, as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.”
II Thessalonians 2:3 “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition,”
II Thessalonians 2:4 “Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the Temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.”
II Thessalonians 2:6 “And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.”
II Thessalonians 2:7 “For the mystery of iniquity doth already work; only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.”
II Thessalonians 2:8 “And then that wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of His mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming:”
II Thessalonians 2:9 “Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,”
II Thessalonians 2:10 “And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.”
II Thessalonians 2:11 “And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:”
II Thessalonians 2:12 “That they all might be damned who believed, not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”
falling away (Strong’s 645) to drag forth or unsheathe (a sword) or religious (with a degree of force implied) retire (personally or factiously) withdraw. (from Strong’s 575) off, away, separation, departure, cessation, completion, reversal , and (from Strong’s 4685) to draw (out)
perdition (Strong’s 684) from; ruin or loss (physically, spiritual or eternal); damnable, destruction, die, perdition, waste; (a presumed derivative of (Strong’s 622) to destroy fully (reflexive to perish, or lose), literally or figuratively destroy, die, lose, mar, perish.

The subject is the return of Jesus Christ and our gathering back to Him period. This will not happen, until there is a falling away, this is an apostacy or going away from one’s religious belief. Then the son of perdition, meaning sentenced to die, be destroyed fully, mar as in blotted out or perish comes. This is none other than Satan as we just read he is the only son as in Ezekiel Chapter 28 that is sentenced to be destroyed from ashes from within. This son of perdition, Satan, will sit at the mount of Olives in Jerusalem in a temple claiming to be God and the whole world will whore after him, spiritually, instead of waiting for the true Husband, Jesus, Who will come at the last trump as in I Corinthians 15:52 right after at the seventh trumpet as in Revelation 11:15 when Jesus returns. Satan, the mystery of iniquity of sin, does work today. Just like God’s Holy Spirit on earth available to whomsoever will believe on Him as in John 3:16. Satan has the evil spirit and those evil fallen ones that can have an effect on you if you let him. Remember as here Jesus has given authority over all enemies as here:

Luke 10:17 “And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, “Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through Thy name.”
Luke 10:18 “And He said unto them, “I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.”
Luke 10:19 “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”
Luke 10:20 “Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.”

The seventy representing God’s elect, the seventy of I Kings 19:18 that not one knee bowed to Baal, meaning confusion or behind all confusion Satan, as in the first earth age as in Revelation 12:1-4. These elect by their actions, not because they are some special people in and of themselves, as God is fair to all peoples in all things based on His Word. They respected and loved dear God by standing up for Him and His Word and fought against Satan and his followers in the first age. God has judged them as their names are written in heaven, and be thankful if you have eyes to see and ears to hear God’s Word. Know that always right now and at the specific time when Satan is kicked out of heaven when God commands Michael and his angels as in Revelation 12:7-9 to fall to earth. These are those untimely figs as here and remember the stars are angels:
Revelation 1:20 “The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in My right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.”
Revelation 6:12 “And I beheld when He had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;”
Revelation 6:13 “And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.”
mystery (Strong’s 3466) a secret or “mystery” (to shut the mouth) (through the idea of silence imposed by initiation into religious rites).
The mystery, or the silence imposed by initiation into religious rites, has been opened and revealed as that is what revelation means to take off the cover by Jesus for us today. Friends, we are living in these end times. We see here Satan appears at the sixth seal, trumpet and vial of the book of Revelation 13:18. It will appear that Jesus is coming to earth, but is Satan that one who is disguised as an angel of light as II Corinthians 11:13. God’s Word states they are untimely figs, we are in that generation of the fig tree as in Mark 13:28. So Michael, the one holding Satan, when God commands will let Satan as in II Thessalonians 2:7. That’s why we just read in Luke 10:17-20 when Satan and his fallen angels are cast out at God’s appointed time from heaven right before Christ’s return, the elect those with eyes to see and ears to hear have the authority because God gives it to them from their actions. They are judged righteously as in the first age by not because they are God’s favorites as God does not respect of persons here:

1 Peter 1:17 “And if ye call on the Father, Who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man’s work, pass the time of your sojourning her in fear:”
I Peter 1:18 “Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;”

Because of who you are a son or daughter of a certain family, nationality, religion, organization or whatever, God is looking at your work, or your actions here on earth and that is what you are judged by. So remember to repent asking dear God in Jesus’s Name and sin no more. So those elect, those that were judged by their actions from the foundation of this earth age as in Ephesians:

Ephesians 1:4 “According as He hath chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love:”
Ephesians 1:5 “Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will,”
Ephesians 1:6 “To the praise of the glory of His grace, wherein He hath made us accepted in the Beloved:”
Ephesians 1:7 “In Whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace,”
foundation (Strong’s 2602) a deposition, i.e. founding; figuratively conception, conceive, foundation; (from Strong’s 2598) to throw down, cast down, lay;

So God at the conception of this world age after the rebellion where Satan sat in God’s spot claiming to be God as in Isaiah Chapter 14 and Ezekiel Chapter 28, God then judged those elect according to His will based on their actions. They stood up for God and His Word and did not bow a knee to Baal, meaning Satan or the confusion he caused. God is the One that made the election accepted by their actions again. We all then have the opportunity of eternal life through the blood of Jesus for Him giving His life once and for all for our sins, because of the richness of His grace. Now back to:

Joel 3:5 “Because ye have taken My silver and My gold, and have carried into your temples My goodly pleasant things:”
Joel 3:6 “The children also of Judah and the children of Jerusalem have ye sold unto the Grecians, that ye might remove them far from their border.”
Joel 3:7 “Behold, I will raise them out of the place whither ye have sold them, and will return your recompence upon your own head:”
Joel 3:8 “And I will sell your sons and your daughters into the hand of the children of Judah, and they shall sell them to the Sabeans, to a people far off: for the LORD hath spoken it.”
Joel 3:9 “Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up:”
Joel 3:10 “Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, “I am strong.”

Then God here finishing his warning to Tyre and Sidon, remember the world commerce center during this time. This for us today looks forward to the one world system under Satan as in Revelation 13:13-17 where Satan looking exactly like the lamb of God is the dragon, meaning Satan one of his roles as in Revelation 12:9 and Revelation 20:2. He will be able to bring fire, or lighting, from heaven having the world financial system under him. The catch is you must worship him in order to have money to buy or sell as in Revelation 13:16-17. This will be so easy for the world to fall under him because the majority of Christian churches today do not teach the Word of God line by line and idea by idea, chapter by chapter. They quote a verse here or there never sticking with the subject and object relying on the traditions of men. God will judge us all by His Word and our actions while living in the flesh, so beware because this is our souls we are talking about here. Now here the Word is telling us to put the plowshares meaning the tools we till the field, as when planting God’s Word, the seeds into the ground, or the people. Turn them into spears and swords, in other words, weapons as God is that sword that comes out of Jesus’ s mouth as in Revelation 19:15. Put on the entire word of God for your gospel armour as here:

Ephesians 6:11 “Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.”
Ephesians 6:12 “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
Ephesians 6:13 “Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”

The reason is especially for us during that five month period when Satan is here in person with the fallen angels as in Revelation 12:7-9. We wrestle against spiritual darkness in heaven, or high places, as remember that is where Satan and the fallen angels are held for judgment. Then we must put on the entire God’s Word, the whole armour so we can withstand Satan during that evil day, this is more specifically when God’s election are delivered up to those synagogues of Satan as in Revelation 2:9 and 3:9 and held for that ten day period as in Revelation 2:10 for the testimony. That is just as in Acts Chapter 2 that perfect Pentecost tongue that went out perfectly in the language that you understand from where you born as those that heard it were from all over the world. That is in Mark 13:9-13 delivered up by family and friends for they deliver the elect to death, meaning the devil as he has the power of death as in Hebrews 2:14. Remember Jesus overcame that by believing on Him we have the opportunity for eternal life if we stick with God’s Word. We must take action and do something with the Word, not just say, hey I am a Christian so I am saved or I believe because even the devils believe as here:

James 2:17 “Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.”
James 2:18 “Yea, a man may say, “Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.”
James 2:19 “Thou believest that there is one God: thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.”

We have our faith but it is dead without works. How do we know what is pleasing to God by hearing and knowing His Word and then doing it. So if someone has faith and no works, their faith is dead. If you have works, by having them shows you have faith. If you believe there is one God, even the devils believe as they fled from Jesus here:

Mark 5:2 “And when He was come out of the ship, immediately there met Him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit,”
Mark 5:3 “Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains: “
Mark 5:4 “Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him.”
Mark 5:5 “And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones.”
Mark 5:6 “But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped Him,”
Mark 5:7 “And cried with a loud voice, and said, “What have I to do with Thee, Jesus, Thou Son of the Most High God? I adjure Thee by God, that Thou torment me not.”
Mark 5:8 “For He said unto him, “come out of this man, thou unclean spirit.”
Mark 5:9 “And He asked him, “What is thy name?” And he answered, saying, “My name is Legion: for w are many.”
Mark 5:10 “and he besought Him much that He would not send them away out of the country.”
Mark 5:11 “Now there was there nigh unto the mountains a great herd of swine, that we may enter into them.”
Mark 5:12 “And all the devils besought Him, saying, “Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them.”
Mark 5:13 “And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea.”
Mark 5:14 “And they that fed the swine fled, and told it in the city, and in the country. And they went out to see what it was that was done.”
Mark 5:15 “And they come to Jesus, and see him that was possessed with the devil, and had the legion, sitting, and clothed, and in his right mind: and they were afraid.”
Mark 5:16 “And they that saw it told them hot it befell to him that was possessed with the devil, and also concerning the swine.”
Mark 5:17 “And they began to pray Him to depart out of their coasts.”
Mark 5:18 “And when He was come into that ship, he that had been possessed with the devil prayed Him that he might be with Him.”
Mark 5:19 “Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, “Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee.”
Mark 5:20 “And he departed, and began to publish in Decapolis how great things Jesus had done for him: and all men did marvel.”
publish (Strong’s 2784) to herald (as a public crier), especially divine truth (the gospel), preach, proclaim, publish.

Jesus here was in the tombs and comes across this man with an evil spirits living in the tombs and tied up, and no person could manage him. This man cut himself with stones, but when he saw Jesus worshipped Him. Then the evil spirit in the man possessed by these spirits calls Jesus Son of the Most High God. The evil spirit we find is legion, meaning many evils spirits in this individual they understood Who Jesus was. They plead that Jesus not send them to hell, but into the most unclean carnal flesh, the swine. The swine could not take the fact the evils spirits were in them, and drown themselves. What happened but the people that made their living from the swine, saw the man healed of the unclean spirits now sane in his right mind and were afraid. They begged and prayed Jesus to get out of their location. Then Jesus returns to his ship, but the man healed of the unclean spirits wanted to go with Jesus! Jesus told the man to go back to the people that made their living from the swine and witness to them what happened this miracle. Jesus asked this man to publish, meaning to publicly cry out the divine truth or the Gospel, the Word of God to them. Now in the Word back to the weapons we are to use the opposite here in:

Isaiah 2:1 “The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.”
Isaiah 2:2 “And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD’S house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.”
Isaiah 2:3 “And many people shall go and say, “Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths:” for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.”
Isaiah 2:4 “And He shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.”

What this is looking forward to the Lord’s Day, the one thousand year period, that comes at Jesus return as in Revelation chapter 20 and Ezekiel Chapters 40-48. Jesus will return ruling with a rod of iron as in Revelation 19:15 ruling with that two-edged sword that comes out of His mouth here:

Revelation 19:15 “And out of His mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it He should smite the nations: and He shall rule them with a rod of iron: and He treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.”

The wrath and the fierceness of God’s wrath is the cup that Jesus was pleading with dear God for, not the fact that He was to be crucified as here:

Matthew 26:38 “Then saith He unto them, “My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with Me.”
Matthew 26:39 “And He went a little farther, and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, “O My Father, if it be possible, et this cup pass from Me: nevertheless not as I will, but as Thou wilt.”
Matthew 26:40 “And He cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, “What, could ye not watch with Me one hour”
Matthew 26:41 “Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
Matthew 26:42 “He went away again the second time, and may not pass away from Me, except I drink it, Thy will be done.”
Matthew 26:43 “And He came and found them asleep again: for their eyes were heavy.”
Matthew 26:44 “And He left them, and went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words.”
Matthew 26:45 “Then cometh He to His disciples, and saith unto them, “Sleep on now, and take your rest: behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.”

Jesus is very sad even unto death and warning His disciples to watch for the enemy with Him. Then Jesus not only watching is praying to Heavenly Father during this hour, asking that God’s cup of wrath be removed, but knowing that is in God’s will. Jesus warning us to watch meaning the signs of our time for His return. The Word of God has laid out what will happen before, and to watch for the signs as in Matthew 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21. Jesus reminding us to pray as that is what we are to do to finalize the entire gospel armor, the Word of God, we are to put into our minds, praying to God for direction as in Ephesians 6:18. Then Jesus tells the disciples to go ahead and sleep and the hour of temptation is at hand, and Jesus would then be as God’s Word told us prior to this as in Psalms 22, the step by step events of His crucifixion. This would come to pass as God’s Word always is true and will happen. They would not accept that Jesus was Messiah at this time, so the crucifixion had to come to pass. The result God’s wrath at the end of our earth age at the second advent, or when Jesus returns ruling with the rod of iron as we just read in Revelation 19:15 and the fierceness of God’s wrath will hit. This will be the hailstones weighing 110 pounds each as here:

Revelation 16:17 “And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the Temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, “It is done.”
Revelation 16:18 “And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.”
Revelation 16:19 “And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath.”
Revelation 16:20 “And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.”
Revelation 16:21 “And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.”

This is the seventh vial, at Jesus’s return after Satan has his reign on earth for the five month period as Revelation 9:5. The great earthquake and the city of Jerusalem, where Satan will have set up his temple and kingdom, will fall, that great Babylon, meaning confusion fallen. Then here in Revelation 16:19 the cup of God’s wrath hitting where no more mountains, meaning separate nations, but one kingdom under King of kings, and Lord of lords, Jesus ruling with a rod of iron, with discipline! Then the hailstones, weighing a talent, approximately one hundred pounds a piece. Why would God do this you may ask? His people would rather jump into bed spiritually with Satan instead of wait for Jesus, as HE warned us so many times in the Word. God will show HE IS GOD! That is why! This is not because Jesus was afraid or did not want to be crucified. That’s why HE is quoting Psalms 22 on the cross saying hey, go back to the Word and read about this I told you way long ago, while HE was dying for us all HE is teaching us. Now that is love. By His Example we see that by His work there is His faith and His awesome love for us all! Not as some ignorantly teach otherwise. Now back to Joel:

Joel 3:11 “Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about: thither cause Thy mighty ones to come down, O LORD.”
Joel 3:12 “Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about.”
Joel 3:13 “Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great.”
Joel 3:14 “Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.”
Joel 3:15 “The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining.”

God is strong and is warning those that pull away from Him and His Word, God is the Judge of all. The Lord’s wrath will
hit right at Jesus’s return to show those that went and worshipped Satan just as that one third that did in the first age as in Revelation 12:7-9, Isaiah Chapter 14 and Ezekiel Chapter 28 taking one third of God’s People. Instead of God destroying them, HE destroyed the age as in Jeremiah Chapter 4, specifically Jeremiah 4:22 the People easily do bad and do not listen to God as they did before in the first earth age. Then God did not create the world empty and void as here:

Jeremiah 4:23 “I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had not light.”
Jeremiah 4:24 “O beheld the earth, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly.”
Jeremiah 4:25 “I beheld, and lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled.”
Jeremiah 4:26 “I beheld, and lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the LORD, and by His fierce anger.”
Jeremiah 4:27 “For thus hath the LORD said, “The whole land shall be desolate; yet will I not make a full end.”
void (Strong’s 922) (meaning to be empty) a vacuity, i.e. an indistinguishable ruin; emptiness, void.

The earth became without form. The earth trembled as God shook the earth and the age was destroyed and God’s fierce anger because one third of His people worshipped Satan! God then because rather than blot out those children, destroyed the age, did not make a full end. Then we see here:

Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”
Genesis 1:2 “And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of waters.”
was (Strong’s 1961) to exist, i.e. be or become, come to pass (always emphatic or definite, and not a mere copula or linking verb, or auxiliary
void (Strong’s 922) (meaning to be empty) a vacuity, i.e. an indistinguishable ruin; emptiness, void.

The heaven and earth were created period. From scientific evidence today we know this is billions of years ago. Then the earth became, or came to pass, it’s state was then void, or a vacuity, an indistinguishable ruin and empty. The condition of the earth changed. As we just read in Jeremiah 4:23027 the earth became void and all life fled, because God did not want to make a full end, or destroy those one third of His children, but rather destroyed the age. God creates all things with purpose. Let’s go here:

Isaiah 45:18 “For thus saith the LORD That created the heavens; God Himself That formed the earth and made it; He hath established it, He created it not in vain, He formed it to be inhabited: “I am the LORD; and there is none else.”
Isaiah 45:19 “I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth: I said not unto the seed of Jacob, ‘Seek ye Me in vain:’ I the LORD speak righteousness, I declare things that are right.”

God made the earth and heavens not in vain, but to be inhabited. God said these things openly and there is nothing hidden. God never told Jacob, the natural seed of Israel, His Word in vain, or emptiness, but always in righteousness because God is right and good! Now let’s go here to Matthew 24 the subject the return of Christ and the end of this world age here:

Matthew 24:1 “And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and His disciples came to Him for to shew Him the buildings of the temple.”
Matthew 24:2 “And Jesus said unto them, “See ye not all these things? Verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.”
Matthew 24:3 “And as He sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when shall these things be and what shall be the sign of Thy coming and of the end of the world?”
Matthew 24:29 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:”
Matthew 24:30 “And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.”
world (Strong’s 165) properly an age; by extension perpetuity (also past); by implication the world; specifically (Jewish) A Messianic period (present or future);

Then after the tribulation, meaning the hour of temptation when Satan appears first God using him to test God’s People to see if they have read God’s Word or not. Will they listen to God or Satan as one third did in the first earth age. Then we see here as we just read in Joel 3:15-16 the sun and moon will appear dark compared to Jesus’s light, and the stars that fall from heaven we know are the fallen angels, as stars are the angels as in Revelation 1:20. The Son of man, Jesus Christ, will appear and all the peoples of the earth will be sad for the majority of the world will have fallen into Satan’s trap thinking that he is Jesus or God for they are ignorant of God’s Word! Take note the world here means the age, the specific Messianic period, as at Christ’s return, we are presently in the age of salvation, the flesh age where each individual born innocent through their mother’s womb. Jesus did the exact same thing showing us how to do it and only HE did it perfectly giving us the way to do things right as here:

Hebrews 2:9 “But we see Jesus, Who was made a little lower than the angels, for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour, that He by the grace of God should taste death for every man.”
Hebrews 2:10 “For it became Him, for Whom are all things, and by Whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the Captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.”
Hebrews 2:11 “For both He That sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of One: for which cause He is not ashamed to call them brethren,”
Hebrews 2:12 “Saying, “I will declare Thy Name unto My brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto Thee.”
Hebrews 2:13 “And again, “I will put my trust in Him.” And again, “Behold, I and the children which God hath given Me.”

Quoted from:

Psalms 22:22 “I will declare Thy Name unto my brethren: In the midst of the congregation will I praise Thee.”

And from:

Isaiah 8:18 “Behold, I and the children whom the LORD hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts, Which dwelleth in mount Zion.”

Hebrews 2:14 “Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He also Himself likewise took part of the same; that through death He might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;”
Hebrews 2:15 “And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.”
Hebrews 2:16 “For verily He took not on Him the nature of angels; but He took on Him the seed of Abraham.”
Hebrews 2:17 “Wherefore in all things it behoved Him to be made like unto His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.”
Hebrews 2:18 “For in that He Himself hath suffered being tempted, He is able to succour them that are tempted.”
Captain (Strong’s 747) a chief leader, author, captain, prince; (from Strong’s 746) a commencement or chief (in various applications of order, time, place or rank), beginning, corner, first (estate), magistrate, power, principality, principle, rule, and (from Strong’s 71) to lead, by implication to bring, drive, go, pass (time), induce, bring forth, carry, let go, keep, lead away, be open.

Jesus made a flesh Man, not a spiritual bodied angel, suffered death in the flesh and tasted it for every person that believes on Him, giving us all the opportunity of eternal life through Him! He loves us that much! He wanted us to make it in the flesh, and knew we could not do it by the law in the flesh because we will sin one time or another as flesh people. Jesus the Captain, meaning the author, or head Chief leading us by His way as Son of man, being a flesh Man, so we could follow His example. He is not ashamed, but loves us all giving us each fairly the opportunity of eternity. Jesus then did declare God’s Name, The Word of God as in Revelation 19:12, in the midst of the church praising dear God. In other words, declaring God’s Word openly for all to take of His Word. Then Jesus Who quoted Psalms 22 on the cross here in Psalms 22:22 Jesus would declare the name of His brothers in the middle of the congregation or army of God and praising God always. So Jesus being that sign and wonder in Israel for the LORD of hosts, or armies. Then Jesus just as we are in flesh bodies, HE took the part of Son of man, or in the flesh, so through His death He overcame the power of death, the devil. Jesus has already won the victory over Satan giving us the authority when we say in His name to cast out all devils and have authority over all our enemies as we just read in Luke 10:17-20. Jesus did not easily take an angelic Body, but put on a flesh Body through the seed, or offspring, of Abraham’s bloodline or family. Jesus wanted to made like us, HE calls His brothers and sisters, and is merciful and faithful, that Melchisedec of Genesis 14:18-20 that Abraham tithed one tenth to Him! Jesus reconciles, or puts us back straight by His perfectness in dying for us the sinners, our sins then cleansed with His innocent blood that God finds acceptable. Now that one thousand years is equal to one day with the Lord here:

II Peter 3:8 “But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the LORD as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.”

So the Lord’s Day the one thousand year period. Now let’s finish this up:

Joel 3:16 “The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter His voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of His People, and the strength of the children of Israel.”

Joel 3:17 “So shall ye know that I am the LORD your God dwelling in Zion, My holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no strangers pass through her any more.”
Joel 3:18 “And it shall come to pass in that day, that the mountains shall drop down, new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and all the rivers of Judah shall flow with waters, and a fountain shall come forth of the house of the LORD, and shall water the valley of Shittim.”
Joel 3:19 “Egypt shall be a desolation, and Edom shall be a desolate wilderness, for the violence against the children of Judah, because they have shed innocent blood in their land.”
Joel 3:20 “But Judah shall dwell for ever, and Jerusalem from generation to generation.”
Joel 3:21 “For I will cleanse their blood that I have not cleansed: for the LORD dwelleth in Zion.”

Then the LORD declaring that no more strangers, or foreigners, setting up their temples in HIS SPOT, the holy mountain, or Mount of Olives in Jerusalem that God married this location spiritually in Ezekiel Chapter 16 having that unclean birth being the first place of Canaan. This is God’s most favorite spot on earth. That’s why Jerusalem is the place as watchmen we are to keep focused on as here in Luke 21:

Luke 21:1 “And He looked up, and saw the rich men casting their gifts into the treasury.”
Luke 21:2 “And He saw also a certain poor widow casting in thither two mites.”
Luke 21:3 “And He said, “Of a truth I say unto you, that this poor widow hath cast in more than they all:”
Luke 21:4 “For all these have of their abundance cast in unto the offerings of God: but she of her penury hath cast in all the living that she had.”
Luke 21:5 “And as some spake of the temple, how it was adorned with goodly stones and gifts, He said,”
Luke 21:6 “As for these things which ye behold, the days will come, in the which there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.”
Luke 21:7 “And they asked Him, saying, “Master, but when shall these things be? And what sign will there be when thee things shall come to pass?”
Luke 21:20 “And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh.”

Then here the location is the temple at the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem, Jesus says not one stone will be left as when His feet as in Zechariah 14:4 the location will be cleansed of Satan’s temple that will be set up changing the geography of the surrounding area. Jesus will set things straight ruling with total discipline and a rod of iron based upon God’s Word. So get ahead of the game so you are not deceived, and so you know what you will be judged, both good and bad, on as in Revelation 20:12-13. Remember once you ask Heavenly Father for forgiveness of sin, sin no more, that is blotted away and you have a clean slate. So we should look forward to judgment for payment for all the things and works we do in this flesh life always for the purpose as Jesus told us the two most important commands to love dear God with all our heart and mind and to love our fellow man, as Jesus says here:

Matthew 22:36 “Master, which is the great commandment in the law?”
Matthew 22:37 “Jesus said unto him, “Thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.”

Jesus telling us the most important to love the LORD our God with all our heart, mind and souls which is quoted from here:

Deuteronomy 6:5 “And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.”

This is the first and then:

Matthew 22:38 “This is the first and great commandment.”
Matthew 22:39 “And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.”

The second being to love our neighbor, or fellow man, as ourselves which is quoted here:

Leviticus 19:18 “Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself: I am the LORD.”

We are to love our fellow man as ourselves. This includes discipline which is part of love as we would discipline a child when necessary. Now let’s continue:

Matthew 22:40 “On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”

The first part to not worship any other god, but only GOD and love HIM with our heart, mind and soul. Then the last commandments the civil law regarding our fellow man. Now let’s go here to see where God will shake not only earth as at the end of the first earth age as we just read in Jeremiah Chapter 4, but both heaven and earth at the Lord’s return:

Hebrews 12:25 “See that ye refuse not Him That speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused Him That spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from Him That speaketh from heaven:”
Hebrews 12:26 “Whose voice then shook the earth: but now He hath promised, saying, “Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.”
Hebrews 12:27 “And this word, “Yet once more,” signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.”

God will shake both heaven and earth, so if you are not standing on the Word of God that ROCK that cannot be shaken, you are on solid ground. If you end up worshipping Satan, then you can be shaken and that is why at Jesus’s return many will rather die than face the living God as here:

Revelation 6:15 “And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;”
Revelation 6:16 “And said to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us, and hide us from the face of Him That sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:”

This will be the majority of the people on earth who are unlearned in God’s Word. They will think that Satan is Jesus or God or whatever person they believe in as Mohammed, or Messiah, or Buddha. They would rather, including all walks of life, rich and poor, free and slaves, die or hide from Jesus, or die, than have the wrath of the Lamb on them. They are ashamed in other words. This is quoted from:

Haggai 2:6 “For thus saith the LORD of hosts; ‘Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land;”
Haggai 2:7 “And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the LORD of hosts.”

This God is warning us HE will shake both heaven and earth. The nations that jump spiritually into bed with Satan, the antichrist, son of perdition of II Thessalonians 2:3-4, because they are ignorant of God’s Word and have not read. God’s glory will fill the house His Light being so bright, dimming the moon and the sun as we just read. Then finishing here:

Hebrews 12:28 “Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:”
Hebrews 12:29 “For our God is a consuming fire.”

We know that Jesus Christ defeated the power of death or the devil as in Hebrews 2:14. We have the victory in His Word today knowing that HE did it for us all if we choose life over death, or Satan. Rest in the fact that we have that k or kingdom, the King and His dominion, today through His Holy Spirit that cannot be moved. His Word will go down exactly as God has told us. Nothing more and nothing less as God warns here:

Revelation 22:19 “And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city and from the things which are written in this book.”

If something is added to or taken from God’s Word, God will take their part out of the book of life. You do not want that friend, just as we see Satan will be blotted as though he never existed in Revelation 20:10 the devil thrown in to the lake of fire and burned from ashes from within or into nothing as if he never was as in Ezekiel 28:18. Stick with God’s Word and be successful so God can use you in His plan to stand up for His Word. He loves for even thinking about trying and I love you too!

Love,
