To Whom Hath The Arm Of The Lord Been Revealed?

Nisi credideritis, non intelligetis. (St. Augustine)

What is the real name of God?

God is not God's name. However, the God of the Universe has a name.

You have Your own personal name. So does God.

"Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name", see Revelation 3:12.

Hence we must ask ourselves: what is the real name of the Lord God?

Jesus Christ has the name that is above every name, see Philippians 2:9. "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved", see Acts 4:12.

Jesus Christ is our Lord and Father God.

The name Jesus signifies Savior, see Matthew 1:21.

Jesus is the Latin form of Esau.

Maybe, someone now understand why so many Jews, concerning Jesus Christ, shouted "Crucify him, crucify him!", see John 19:6, 2000 years ago, because they did not want this Jesus/Esau on the throne of David forever and forever, see Luke 1:33.

But this is nevertheless what should happen and has happened.

"I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now", see John 16:12.

Everything gets its answer in its appointed time.

Stu wrote to me a while ago, and asked if Esau is good, and if Jesus is the Latin form of Esau.

Thank You for Your patience Stu.

Here is my answer: no one is good except God the Father, and yes, Jesus is the Latin form of Esau.

Esau was Isaac's firstborn, and Jacob said to Esau, when he had wrestled with God, see Genesis 32:30: "I have seen thy face, as though I had seen the face of God, and thou wast pleased with me", see Genesis 33:10.

We know that our God both is the heavenly Father and the Creator, see John 1:3, 1:10, and 14:9.

Can You imagine the God of Israel create Arabs, Black People, and Asiatics, see Colossians 1:16?

And yet they are created, because our God Jesus/Esau creates and loves all peoples, see Revelation 5:9, and especially the Romans, see Romans 1:7 and 16:20.

It is written: "Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed?", see John 12:38, and compare with Isaiah 53:1.

The Chief Priests and the Pharisees recognized Roman superiority, see John 11:48, because Jesus/Esau is God and came to serve, according to the words that the older will serve the younger, see Romans 9:12.

Now "it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated", see Romans 9:13.

Therefore our Lord God Jesus consequently says: "If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you", see John 15:18.

Esau, by cultural law - because he was born first - inherited everything.

We remember that Isaac's sons, Esau and Jacob, were twins, but that Esau was the firstborn.

Jesus is the oldest and thereby got everything, see Colossians 1:15, compare with 2 Corinthians 4:4.

"Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding", see Proverbs 4:7.

Just because a person is a Jew will not save them. They will be rejected unless they come to Christ through faith, compare with Matthew 8:12.

The good news in the New Testament is that Jesus Christ is all in all, and that He therefore is our peace, see Romans 5:1, and Ephesians 2:14.

Jesus Christ is a Jew, but He is also Esau, and thus a Roman as well.

Therefore the Latin language is promised to get world dominion, compare with Genesis 27:22.

"For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead? For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches", see Romans 11:15 - 16.

"And he said, What meanest thou by all this drove which I met? And he said, These are to find grace in the sight of my lord. And Esau said, I have enough, my brother; keep that thou hast unto thyself", see Genesis 33:8 - 9.

Now, if the Old Testament God truly hated Esau, then Esau is more powerful than that God, and is in fact the real God, since Esau was blessed and prospered.

However, did God really hate Esau? Compare with Deuteronomy 2:20 - 23.

As Esau wept, so Jesus wept, see Genesis 27:34, and compare with John 11:35.

Remember that Jesus takes notes of every circumstance you go through, see John 1:48.

The devil on the other hand does not own anything at all, see Matthew 28:18.

But, "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour", see 1 Peter 5:8. "Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you", see James 4:7.

2000 years ago hate abounded in Israel. Therefore Jesus said: "A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another", see John 13:34.

Just because You are born a Jew does not mean that You automatically will be saved, but You must believe in Jesus Christ and follow Him. "Worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve", see Matthew 4:10.

The plain truth concerning the Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant Churches, is that they often advocate the same sentiment that crucified our Lord God Jesus, the true Esau, and Father God.

But now they are crucified, together with the world, see Revelation 11:10.

Islam and the Muslims have Alexander the Great - the father of democracy and of brotherhood of mankind - as a Prophet. Islam also recognizes Esau in Christ.

I commend Islam for this.

When will You hear the Church applaud Alexander the Great for introducing democracy to the world? When will You hear the Church recognize that Jesus Christ manifests the Spirit and Face of Esau?

The victory belongs to the Christians, who recognize that Jesus is the Lord God Almighty, and that the original and Latin name of Esau is Jesus.

Jesus is the sword of Esau, compare with 1 Chronicles 21:16, Hebrews 4:12, Revelation 1:16, and Revelation 12:5.

"Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith", see Galatians 3:13 - 14.

"Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place", see 2 Corinthians 2:14.

Jesus Christ Is The Creator And The Father

Homines quod volunt credunt.

Jesus Christ is not just the way to the Father, see John 14:6, to be stepped upon and by-passed, but He is the Father Himself, see John 14:9, and the Creator of the Universe, see Colossians 1:16.

Jesus is not a mere perfected man, but He is God, see Isaiah 9:6 and John 20:28.

Jesus was from everlasting and is everlasting, because as He Himself said: "Before Abraham was, I am", see John 8:58.

Jesus made all things and without Jesus not anything was made that was made, see John 1:3 and 10.

Now, there is only one God, see John 10:30, and Zechariah prophesied: "And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one", see Zechariah 14:9.

The disciples of Jesus routinely baptized in Jesus' name, according to the Lord's commandment to baptize "in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost", see Matthew 28:19.

In consequence the name of the Lord God is Jesus - and not Elohim, Allah, Jehovah or Jahweh - because the disciples received it, compare with Acts 4:10 - 12, and we have understood the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, to be Jesus.

All the miracles in the New Testament were only made in the name of Jesus Christ, see also for example Acts 3:6.

"Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God", see Isaiah 44:6.

In the book of Revelation, Christ, "He who sits on the throne said, Behold, I am making all things new", see Revelation 21:5, and "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last", see Revelation 22:13.

"He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son", see Revelation 21:7.

Thus we only have one God - Jesus Christ.

Jesus said that He would send the comforter to us, see John 16:7, because God the Father would send the comforter, see John 14:26. Jesus also said He would draw all men unto Himself, see John 12:32, because the Father alone can draw all men, see John 6:44.

Jesus declared that He will raise up all believers in the last day, see John 6:40, because only God the Father can quicken the dead and raise us up, see Romans 4:17 and 1 Corinthians 6:14.

Furthermore, Jesus Christ is our sanctifier, see Ephesians 5:26, because only God the Father can sanctify us, see Jude 1:1.

Jesus Christ gave His life for us as John witnessed: "Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us", see 1 John 3:16.

God, Who is Jesus, laid down His life for us, to take it again, see John 10:17 - 18.

Accordingly, Jesus is God, and if Jesus is God, then He is our heavenly Father also, see Romans 9:5, Titus 2:13, and 1 John 5:20.

In the Old Testament, Malachi 2:10 asks the question: "Have we not all one father? hath not one God created us?".

In 1 Corinthians 8:6 it is consequently written: "to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things".

When Jesus walked on Earth in the capacity of being fully man, He could only be in one place at a time, see John 16:7, He could be tempted, see Hebrews 4:15, He could thirst, see John 19:28, He could be tired, see Matthew 8:20, and He could die, see John 19:33.

On the surface Jesus sometimes does seem to speak of Himself and the Father as if they were two different persons. Therefore the Apostle Philip asked Jesus: " Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us", see John 14:8.

The Apostle Philip thought Jesus was speaking of another person. But, notice Jesus' astonishment when He answered: "Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?", see John 14:9.

The reason why Jesus - our God incarnated, see 1 Timothy 3:16 - often spoke of God in the third person is that He was humble, and did not want to appear unto men as God, but as a man, just like one of us, compare with Philippians 2:5 - 8.

Christ promised that a moment of truth will come: "These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the Father", see John 16:25.

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God, and the Spirit of God is the Spirit of Christ, see Romans 8:9, because there is only one Spirit, see Ephesians 4:4.

This Holy Spirit is the one true God, and as to His Deity, Jesus is the Holy Spirit. To recieve Christ is to receive the Holy Spirit.

Therefore Jesus told the disciples: "Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you ", see John 14:17 - 18.

Who Is The Real Messiah?

Inhumanitas omni aetate molesta est. (Cicero)

The best way to recognize that the New Testament actually is an historical document, is to read it.

To the unbelieving religious leaders of His day, Christ said: "Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life", see John 5:39 - 40.

Some people do not believe Jesus is the Messiah, because He was killed. But how do these people explain this prophecy: "And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off", see Daniel 9:26?

Even Jesus' own disciples experienced doubt. However, after Jesus rose from the dead, He appeared to them: "And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself", see Luke 24:27.

Concerning the Messiah, the Scriptures say: "Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel", see Isaiah 7:14 and Matthew 1:23.

But do we have some real evidence that Jesus ever existed?

We have in fact four trustworthy sources for the existence of Jesus Christ: 1) Josephus in his Jewish Antiquities, 2) Pliny the Younger in his Letter to Trajan, 3) Tacitus in his Roman Annals, and 4) Sanhedrin 43a.

Thus there is no dispute that Jesus Christ as a matter of fact lived on and did walk the Earth.

But did Jesus die? Absolutely!

All the four New Testament Gospels explicitly declare that the Lord Jesus was dead prior to entering the tomb, see Matthew 27:50, Mark 15:44 - 45, Luke 23:46, and John 19:32 - 34.

Knowing peace must begin with knowing that there is a Creator, Who has established a standard for us, compare with Revelation 3:14.

Peace was conditional even in the Garden of Eden. It was Adam and Eve's only as long as they remained obedient to God.

Peace and God are intertwined, see Isaiah 9:6 and Ephesians 2:14.

We act today as if peace can be achieved through political or socialistic solutions.

We spend billions and an endless amount of effort to negotiate peace among peoples and nations, for example in Afghanistan, Bosnia, Chechnya, Kenya, Pakistan, and in the Middle East. But even the City of Peace - Jerusalem - has become a place where acts of terrorism abound.

Billy Graham rightly noted: "The greatest warfare going on in the world today is going on between mankind and God".

But when Messiah returns, then the whole world will have peace: "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid", see John 14:27, and compare with Philippians 4:7, and Colossians 3:15.

As with any historical event, the resurrection of Jesus must be explored and examined on the weight of the evidence.

Either the resurrection happened, or it did not.

"But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead", see 1 Corinthians 15:19 - 20.

But what is the evidence that Jesus rose from the dead?

There was a giant stone covering the tomb, and there were Roman guards at the site of the tomb, see Matthew 27:60 - 66.

When Messiah was on the Cross, His followers were defeated and faithless, as they did not understand the necessity for His death.

But after the resurrection, when Jesus physically appeared to them, they completely changed behavior. No longer were they cowardly and flip-flopping, but rather they were transformed into bold proclaimers of the message of the resurrection.

The resurrection of Jesus is thus in fact the basis for the Christian faith.

All the four gospels of the New Testament also mention the resurrection.

Compare with the coming resurrection of the Two Witnesses: "And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them", see Revelation 11: 11.

The first century believers in Jesus were not deceivers, but they shared the historical events as they happened, when they described the fantastic resurrection of Jesus.

When the disciples of Jesus Christ wrote the New Testament, they were a persecuted and small minority.

Our Lord God had a mission with his death and resurrection, compare with John 10:17 - 18.

As the Almighty God, Christ already had all the power, see Revelation 1:8, but He gave up His life as an atonement for sin to save sinners, see Matthew 9:13 and 1 Timothy 1:15.

Nevertheless, why should You believe in Jesus Christ?

Should You believe Jesus is the real Messiah, because of His moral teachings, or because it is convenient and shows Your social standing?

There is only one reason why anyone should believe in Jesus Christ. That is because of Who He is and what He has done.

Does Science Need Jesus Christ?

Tantum eruditi sunt liberi. (Epictetus)

Pope Benedict XVI cancelled a visit to La Sapienza University in Rome, a couple of days ago, after students and faculty voiced a protest against his stance on Galileo's trial back in A.D. 1633.

Galileo replaced the geocentric - Earth-at-the-center - view of the solar system, for the heliocentric - Sun-at-the-center - view.

We remember how Galileo was forced to recant his heliocentrism, and he spent the last years of his life under house arrest, on orders of the Inquisition.

Pope Benedict XVI has called Galileo's trial "rational and just".

Galileo Galilei (1564 - 1642) claimed, against all contemporary science and theology, that the Earth did not stand still at the center of the Universe, but did in fact orbit the Sun.

In fact Galileo not only extrapolated that the Earth rotates around the Sun, but he argued that the tides help to support the argument that the Earth moves around the Sun.

Galileo also said that the Sun does not move, but that it is the immovable center of the Universe.

Modern science knows that the Sun in fact moves, and that our Sun not is the center of the Universe. Our dear Sun is in fact not even at the center of our own Galaxy.

Nevertheless, the Vatican determined Galileo to be heretical and dangerous, so its prelates made Galileo renounce his findings, threatened to excommunicate him, and placed him under house arrest until his death.

What obviously not has changed for 400 years, is our human intolerance, and our reluctance to progress through teamwork and dialogue, see http://news.bbc.co.uk/player/nol/newsid_7190000/newsid_7190700/7190770.stm?bw=bb&mp=wm&asb=1&news=1&bbcws=1.

The Church should not forget that it was wrong concerning Galileo, since the Earth not is the center of the Universe.

But in the same way, the scientists should recognize that Galileo also was wrong, because the Sun both moves, and is far from the center of the Universe.

We must always have in mind that the Lord God is greater than any problem we have.

Galileo did not want to listen to the argument that the Sun moves, according to the Bible, see for example Joshua 10:13.

And there is no distinction between the Scriptures and their interpretation.

The Church back then was wrong - just as often today - and did in fact Galileo a wrong, but Galileo was not himself without fault.

Thus both Galileo and his opponents were partly right and partly wrong.

If the persons involved, would have cooperated with each other, they would have got it right, and without unnecessary sufferings.

Many scientists of today, are not apt to listen to the answers we can find for "all things" through Jesus Christ.

The opposite of love is not hate, it is indifference.

"But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you", see John 14:26, and compare with John 15:26.

Why is it so hard for modern scientists to listen to the views of other intelligent and important persons, like the Pope Benedict XVI?

This is also a question of free speech.

Galileo was not condemned for the things he said, but for the way he said them.

He made statements with the same sectarian intolerance we find among many prominent scientists of today.

400 years ago the Church opposed free speech, but today it is the scientists, who are opposed to free speech.

As a comparison: WW2 was a race against time.

Adolf Hitler had all necessary knowledge to build the atomic bomb, but he did not have enough plutonium.

Had WW2 continued for another 6 - 12 months, the result would have been disastrous, because London and Paris, as well as other cities, would have been destroyed.

The American decision to bomb Hiroshima and Nagasaki, was a very difficult one. But there was no other option, because the war had to end quickly.

Today, Christian theologians know that WW3 will start when Jerusalem is divided, compare for example with Joel 3:2.

Yet, many politicians around the world are working for a modern nuclear WW3, without consulting the Spirit of Christ.

Only what is done in the Lord God will last.

During the last 100 years, we have witnessed how Christian Orthodoxy often backed Marxism-Leninism in the former Soviet Union, and how Catholicism in like manner backed the Nazis in Germany.

Dark matter are burned out stars, and 90% of the Universe consists of it.

Will anyone be surprised, when many Evangelicals and Protestants will support the candidacy of the coming Antichrist for President in America in a few years' time?

A new extremely powerful weapon has recently been invented, but what do we read in the Scriptures?

"And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened", see Matthew 24:22.

Anyway, a fruitful dialogue between the Church and the scientists seems at the moment to be impossible.

Religion and science - two extremely important establishments - have for a long time caused disharmony to the world.

But science needs Jesus, and Christianity needs science. And with Jesus, science will indeed be more interesting!

Now we are "looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ", see Titus 2:13.

Elijah The Tishbite And John The Baptist

Perpetuo vincit, qui utitur clementia. (Publilius Syrus)

Reincarnation is a very interesting subject in the Bible.

In the Old Testament Job asks in Job 14:14: "If a man die, shall he live again?". We then find the answer in Job 33:29: "Lo, all these things worketh God twice and thrice with man".

Thus the Spirit of man is reincarnated two or three times, according to the Bible. But Jesus said: "Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out", see Revelation 3:12.

"Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years", see Revelation 20:6.

In the Old Testament we read how the Prophet Elijah "repaired the altar of the Lord that was broken down", see 1 Kings 18:30.

The mission of the Prophet Elijah in the Old Testament was to make the children of Israel repent.

Elijah therefore exposed the false prophets of Baal and slew them at the brook Kishon, see 1 Kings 18:40, and compare with Revelation 11:5.

Then came John the Baptist "in the spirit and power of Elias", see Luke 1:17, to do a work similar in character to that of the mission of our present day Elijah the Tishbite, of whom Christ said: "Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things", see Matthew 17:11 and Matthew 27:47 - 49.

John the Baptist exposed and warned the false prophets, see Matthew 3:7 - 10, but he did not kill them.

John the Baptist dealt not in judgment, but in grace. Nevertheless, John the Baptist declared that Christ would pour out Divine judgment with fire, see Matthew 3:11.

The message of John the Baptist was simple and to the point: "Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand", see Matthew 3:2.

When John the Baptist said: "Repent ye", he introduced Christianity to his Jewish hearers, demanding them to leave the ways of the Synagogue, and to bring Christ into the world.

Like John the Baptist, Elijah the Tishbite is often despised and questioned, and sometimes also difficult for some people to understand.

But we should ask ourselves: is Christ - in the eyes of the world - a reasonable Deity?

If you give Elijah the Tishbite a coat, you can be sure he will give it away within five minutes from having received it, but to someone who in fact needs it more than himself. But then he will complain again that he has no coat!

Like John the Baptist, Elijah the Tishbite often urges Christians to leave their Church, and to instead bring the real Christ into the world. This is certainly not a popular message among many Priests and Pastors, and of course not all Churches are bad - some are in fact excellent, but in essence Elijah the Tishbite is often right.

When I met Elijah the Tishbite 19 years ago, he said he was from Oakland in California. At first I was surprised. Why would God raise up a Prophet from America?

Then I understood why. America is the only and real Superpower, and is much richer than Europe and the rest of the world.

If you were Satan the Antichrist, where would you like to rule from? From Belgium, which has six different local governments and different languages? Or from Sweden, close to the North Pole, and with a tiny population? Or from France, discussing with people which kind of cheese to have with which kind of wine? Or from Italy, where people cannot organize themselves to handle all the garbage? Or from the tiny British Isles somewhere in the sea?

The Soviet experience with socialism and Lenin was a catastrophe, even for Satan.

Germany could have been a possible place for Satan and his throne, except that Satan already have tried there, through Hitler and "Mein Kampf", but with poor results.

The Arab countries could also have been found possible to harbor the devil, but when Satan tried with Islam and the Koran, it did not turn out as that stupid jerk expected. The Arab and Muslim countries are too divided and also too poor to really interest Satan.

The only interesting place for Satan in the world, which remains for him to subdue is the rich, powerful, well-organized, and democratic United States of America.

Hence Elijah the Tishbite is from California, to fulfill the Scriptures, according to God's promise to raise up "an horn of salvation", see Luke 1:69.

God has the situation under perfect control, see Matthew 28:18. Do not worry about anything, see Philippians 4:6.

Build therefore up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, see Jude 1:20.

Remember that with Jesus Christ there are good news, see Acts 10:43, but the end for the enemies of the cross of Jesus Christ is destruction, see Philippians 3:18 - 19, and 1 Thessalonians 5:3.

Thankfully, the bad news of the Antichrist is followed by the good news of Elijah the Tishbite, and the good news has to do with our forgiving and merciful Lord Jesus Christ, compare with Hebrews 4:16.

"Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place", see 2 Corinthians 2:14.

What Is God's Plan For Israel?

Ora et labora. (St. Benedict)

I was not surprised, when it came to my knowledge that Elijah the Tishbite, not was welcomed to enter Israel at this time.

If Elijah the Tishbite would have been allowed into Israel, then Jerusalem could quickly have become the unified Jewish capital of Israel.

But then it would have been to a spiritually dead and unconverted people, without The Temple.

And as everybody knows, Israel, Jerusalem, and the Jewish People, are about God and Religion.

God must and will rule the world, see Revelation 11:15 and 12:5.

Since Christ will rule from Jerusalem Jerusalem will of course become both unified and Jewish in the near future.

God comes before Kings and Presidents, and Religion is more important than Politics.

The divine Priesthood is equally more important than any worldly Government, since the Priesthood represents the Divine Government, see Isaiah 9:7 and Luke 1:32 - 33.

Priests are more important than Politicians, but the Levites are the Politicians of tomorrow.

The Levitical Priesthood - both men and women - will collect the 10% tax, which is the only tax all peoples will have to pay in the future, see Hebrews 7:5.

The reason why Elijah the Tishbite not yet is welcome to Israel, is that both West and East Jerusalem must be lost, for the Scriptures have to be fulfilled, see Luke 21:20 - 24, Revelation 11:2, and compare with Galatians 4:30.

In order for God to take full control over the world, and for the Levites to ascend to world domination, Jerusalem will be lost for 42 months, "until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in", see Romans 11:25.

The reason for this is that no sinner ever was pardoned, while he remained impenitent and in rebellion against God and His authority.

"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you", see Matthew 6:33.

There is no such thing as universal forgiveness with God in the New Testament, see Luke 19:27, 2 Corinthians 5:10, and Revelation 6:9 - 10.

The Apostle Peter accordingly said: "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out", see Acts 3:19.

By submitting themselves whole-heartedly to the Lord God Jesus, the Jewish People will get the Third Temple, when all the rest of Jerusalem is lost.

The Lord God demands more of His people, than a mental assent to the New Testament, or an empty profession of faith.

The land promise to Israel is conditional. Israel has to be obedient to the Lord God to continue in the land.

When God said: "In thee shall all nations be blessed", He predicted that the Gentiles would be justified by faith, see Galatians 3:8.

"Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing", see 2 Timothy 4:8.

Next American President will be Hillary Clinton. She has a Law degree and is certainly a great person. The United States is also a great country.

Nevertheless, when the Queen of the Bottomless Pit goes down, the King of the Bottomless Pit will come up.

The Book of Revelation speaks of seven kings: "five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition", see Revelation 17:10 - 11.

The eighth and last Kingdom is the revived first Empire, Atlantis or America, and its King will be the reincarnated Lucifer, the Antichrist mentioned in Revelation 9:11 and 17:11.

The seven Empires and its Kings who are fallen are: Atlantis - Lucifer, Egypt - Akhenaton, Babylon - Nebuchadnezzar, Assyria - Sennacherib, Greece - Alexander the Great, The Roman Empire - Nero, and The Third Reich - Adolf Hitler.

The Antichrist is thus preceded by seven kings or rulers. He will be the eighth king. He will also be of the seven, see Revelation 17:11.

He will not be raised from the dead, because he "goeth into perdition" - "whose look was more stout than his fellows", see Daniel 7:20 - but he will have the same nationality as the ruler just before him.

"Et latine habet nomen Exterminans", see Revelation 9:11 in the Latin Bible.

For the number calculations of the beast in Revelation 13:18, see http://www.scatteredsheep.com/perilous_times/antichrist/schwarzenegger/arnold_schwarzenegger.htm.

"He shall subdue three kings", see Daniel 7:24, and these are Canada, Mexico, and the United States.

Jerusalem is "the city of the great King", "the holy city", and "the beloved city", see Matthew, 5:35, Revelation 11:2, and Revelation 20:9.

When the land of Israel finally is restored to the Jewish People, see Deuteronomy 34:4, Acts 1:6, and Romans 11:29, then Christ will reign for a thousand years with His people, see Revelation 20:4, and after that forever and forever, see Leviticus 25:23, and Revelation 22:5.

Under the New Testament Gospel, both Jews and Gentiles are blessed equally without partiality, see Ephesians 2:19.

Thus both Jews and Gentiles have the same hope, not different hopes, see Ephesians 4:4.

Today's spiritual Sodom, see Revelation 11:8, which is Jerusalem, will become the future Religious capital of the world.

In the same way will today's Gomorrha, see Jude 1:7, which is New Rome, become the future Political capital of the world.

The Scriptures teach us that the conditions of salvation are the same for both Jews and Gentiles, see Acts 10:34 - 35: "For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek", see Romans 10:12.

We know that Paul was deeply grieved because the Jews rejected the Gospel, see Romans 9:2 - 5. Nevertheless, the day approaches when "all Israel shall be saved", see Romans 11:26 and 13:12.

Jesus promised Himself that before He would return "Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things", see Matthew 17:11 and Matthew 27:47 - 49.

The Third Temple must therefore be built in Jerusalem, see Revelation 11:1 - 2, before Israel’s Messiah can return and take His rightful place in His city as King of Kings and Lord of Lords, see Revelation 19:16.

The worship of the true God - Jesus Christ - will be completely restored to Jerusalem and Israel under the Levitical Priesthood.

The next and last Catholic Pope - Petrus Romanus - will give the keys of the Kingdom to the Levites, see Matthew 16:18 - 19.

Then Latin will become the universal language of the world, but the Latin idiom will of course often be translated into both Hebrew and Greek, see Revelation 9:11, and compare with Obadiah 1:6.

Israel will be completely restored to the Promised Land, and compare with Luke 1:32 - 33, Acts 1:6, and Deuteronomy 28:13.

Israel is God's people and God's land, see Romans 11:1 and Revelation 12:1.

"There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise", see Galatians 3:28 - 29.

Do You Accept Jesus As Your Personal Savior?

Dominus illuminatio mea.

British Airways has problems with a 56-year-old employee, who violates the company's dress code by wearing a cross necklace, see http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=59610.

And the right of free speech is challenged in Philadelphia, where a Christian has been arraigned on charges of "unlawful preaching", see http://www.onenewsnow.com/2008/01/christian_activist_to_be_arrai.php.

But what does the Scripture say?

"Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine", see 2 Timothy 4:2.

Jesus is my personal Savior, and I believe that only Jesus saves.

Jesus is God in the flesh, because God became a human being according to John 1:1, 14, and compare with 1 Timothy 3:16.

Jesus is our heavenly Father, see John 14:9: "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved", see Acts 4:12.

With supernatural powers, Jesus will resurrect You. Therefore we are "looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ", see Titus 2:13.

"Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us", see 1 John 3:16.

Jesus Christ "is the true God, and eternal life", see 1 John 5:20, and "as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name", see John 1:12.

A Spiritual Kingdom requires a Spiritual nature: "It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing", see John 6:63.

Therefore human cloning is not automatically making superhumans or better people, and compare with Arnold in Mad TV, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hlxoyw_8I7I.

Jesus died to pay the penalty for our sins, see Romans 5:8. Jesus paid the price so that we would not have to.

Jesus' resurrection from the dead proved that His death was sufficient to pay the penalty for our sins. That is why Jesus is the one and only Savior.

All have sinned, see Romans 3:23, and compare with this Sex And The City Parody, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ohqNf5e4D1k.

All therefore need to repent and believe the Gospel, see Mark 1:15, or else be "punished with everlasting destruction", see 2 Thessalonians 1:9.

Christ accordingly said: "except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish", see Luke 13:5.

The salvation of any sinner is a matter of "the operation of God", see Colossians 2:12.

Only those who have been made "meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light", see Colossians 1:12, and made holy shall enter Heaven, which is a prepared place for a prepared people, see John 14:2.

Because without holiness no man shall see the Lord, see Hebrews 12:14.

The Cross Is The Wisdom Of God

Dum excusare credis, accusas. (St. Jerome)

"For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God", see 1 Corinthans 1:18.

How could the blood from a condemned man, who died a hideous and shameful death, forgive sin and convert the world?

God operates by means of weakness and folly, see 2 Corinthians 12:10 and 13:4, as Paul wrote to the assembly of believers at Corinth. And there were not many wise, mighty, or well-born.

Even God’s choice of You is a picture of God’s wisdom in the cross, because it is a wisdom designed to eliminate all human boasts, see 1 Corinthians 1:29 - 31.

Man’s knowledge is nothing unless it rests upon the wisdom of God.

Or do someone think Elijah the Tishbite will confront the Antichrist, see Revelation 11:7, by taking help of a course in Psychology?

There is only darkness in the world, but light is found in the pages of the New Testament, and in the New Testament You will find the answers to all Your questions.

Every time Jesus responded to Satan, He said "it is written", which expressed the authoritative character of the Scriptures.

By means of the cross, God rendered foolish the world’s wisdom.

By means of the gospel, God cast down the entire realm of foolish self-sufficiency.

Jesus came to fulfill, compare with Matthew 5:17.

"For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe", see 1 Corinthians 1:19 - 21.

This is the judgment: God will save those who believe through the foolishness of preaching.

And the righteous shall shine forth as the sun in the Kingdom of their Father, see Matthew 13:43, and compare with Daniel 12:3.

Those among the Jews, who demanded the crucifixion of Jesus, were for full subjection to Caesar, the Roman Emperor, see John 19:12.

But after Christ got crucified, what happened to those "wise people"? What happened to those "experts" in the Scriptures? What happened to the ones who thought they had all the answers? Did not God show them that the wisdom of this world is foolishness? Did they not lose all and everything, both their land and their lives?

And people having the same mentality, are today selling out Israel to its enemies, through land for peace deals, and compare with http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satellite?cid=1198517289582&pagename=JPost%2FJPArticle%2FShowFull!

But Christ will stop the eviction of Jews from His land, see for example Revelation 19:19 - 21.

The New Testament contains such hidden wisdom, see Ephesians 3:9 - 10, which even astonishes angels, see 1 Peter 1:12.

The rulers of this age, who rigidly cling to man-centered wisdom, are destined for shame, see 1 Corinthians 2:8 - 9, because only God’s wisdom in the cross leads to power and glory.

You have been set apart for salvation by an act of God: "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house", see Acts 16:31.

But is Christ divided?, see 1 Corinthians 1:13.

Lack of wisdom is the cause of all the problems with Church divisions, compare with 1 Corinthians 1:12. The Church "is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all", see Ephesians 1:23.

"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek", see Romans 1:16.

The Greeks seek wisdom through science and philosophy, and they take immense pride in their speculations. Those outside the circle of their wisdom are regarded as barbarians and idiots.

But Christ is not preached as an intellectual philosopher or a political conqueror. The message of the New Testament is accordingly not tailored to fit the Greeks, and compare with Colossians 2:8.

My mother was Greek Orthodox, but since my father was Swedish and Lutheran like myself, many Greeks regard me as half barbarian or as some sort of inferior being.

Here is the scandal of the cross, because if the message of the cross is merely run through human wisdom, it will cause people to stumble over its all-powerful and all-wise truth.

The difficult truth is, that human wisdom without God, always will fail.

Christ is badly received in the world, because the Greeks cannot discern wisdom, but they put their minds and opinions ahead of Scripture.

We should not forget that the New Testament teaches that this present world will be destroyed, and that all which not is founded on Christ will burn with fervent heat, compare with 2 Peter 3:10.

"If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him", see James 1:5.

As for the Jews, they have a way of seeking to validate spiritual knowledge by seeking external, supernatural signs.

Jesus often condemned the Jews for not believing the Scriptures unless they saw signs, see Matthew 12:38 - 40, 16:1, 4, and Mark 8:11-12.

The Jews demanded Jesus to give them a striking demonstration of power and of majesty, worthy coming from their glorious Messiah, political deliverer, and Prince.

But in the cross Christ disappointed and insulted their expectations, for to human perception the cross was solely abject ignominy, shame, and weakness.

"But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory", see 1 Corinthians 2:7.

My grandmother was born in Cairo in Egypt 1900, and was Italian and Roman Catholic; her parents had emigrated from Naples.

And it is really ironic that the Romans - God’s foolishness and weakness - in all simplicity individually started to confess: "I am a sinner, Christ died for me", and then became His beloved, and established the Church universally, with power and wisdom, and through the Latin language.

Carnal wisdom, or idolatrous sign seeking, will only keep You in spiritual diapers!

Now the time has come for both Jews and Greeks to grow up, and to open their eyes and minds, in order to grow beyond spiritual infancy, so that the cross-centered life becomes their hallmark!

To them who are called - both Jews and Greeks - Christ is the power of God, and the wisdom of God, see 1 Corinthians 1:24.

Will not the Lord God keep His promises and restore the Temple in Jerusalem to the Jews, and the Church in New Rome to the Greeks, when they return to Christ?

"Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need", see Hebrews 4:16.

Consider what God did in Christ at the cross, for everything starts and ends at the cross.

The cross is filled with divine wisdom and divine mystery, which overturns the human intellect and human wisdom.

Coming changes will cause some difficulties for both Jews and Greeks, but as Jesus said: "No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God", see Luke 9:62.

"Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate. Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach. For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come. By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name", see Hebrews 13:12 - 15.

Our faith and our calling, does not rest in human wisdom, but in the powerful divine wisdom of God.

Thanks to Christ, everything belongs to You.

Who Is The Morning Star?

Si vis amari, ama. (Seneca)

Who is the Morning Star, Jesus or Lucifer?

"I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star", see Revelation 22:16, and compare with 2 Peter 1:19.

The wise men saw the star of Jesus, see Matthew 2:2, as the prophecy of Balaam had declared: "there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel", see Numbers 24:17.

Thus according to the New Testament, Jesus Christ is the Morning Star.

Numbers 24:18 declares: "And Edom shall be a possession", which means that the Latin language will be the future language of Israel - just like the Greeks long time ago adopted the Greek language from the Phoenicians, and compare with Romans 10:12.

Israel is making a tremendous effort, in adopting the Latin language, see Obadiah 1:6, and here is also a mystery, which involves the Church, see Revelation 12:1 and Genesis 27:22.

But what about Satan?

Christ said Himself: "I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven", see Luke 10:18. See also Revelation 12:9.

Compare with the Latin Bible: "Quomodo cecidisti de caelo lucifer qui mane oriebaris corruisti in terram qui vulnerabas gentes, qui dicebas in corde tuo in caelum conscendam super astra Dei exaltabo solium meum, sedebo in monte testamenti in lateribus aquilonis; ascendam super altitudinem nubium ero similis Altissimo. Verumtamen ad infernum detraheris in profundum laci", see Isaiah 14:12 - 15.

It can be noted that Isaiah 14:12, in both the Latin Bible and in the King James Version, says Lucifer and not Morning Star.

Then Jesus promised His followers: "Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy", see Luke 10:19.

Thus we are to trample on Satan's creation, and compare with Romans 16:20.

We know how Lucifer abused his creative powers by transforming our planet into a steamy, wet, and tropical hell.

Then Satan populated our planet with dinosaurs, sea reptiles, flying serpents, and other abnormal grotesque creatures and monstrosities.

Satan's seed is still existing today, and who has not heard of Leviathan or Behemoth?

The great Comet, or Asteroid, which devastated Earth 65 million years ago, and put an end to all dinosaurs, was none other than Satan himself being thunderously hurled towards Earth, confounding and destroying the whole ecosystem of our planet, and compare with Revelation 9:1 and 12:9.

That same thing is happening again today.

The reason why God destroyed Sodom, was because of "pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy", see Ezekiel 16:49, and compare with 2 Peter 2:6, Jude 1:7, and Revelation 11:8.

"And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power", see Revelation 9:1 - 3.

As the Lord God creates good, so Satan creates evil, compare with Matthew 13:25.

As Jesus is represented by the Morning Star, see Revelation 22:16, so Lucifer also imitates this and accordingly has his star, see Revelation 9:1.

"And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light", see 2 Corinthians 11:14.

Even after his vile creations were destroyed, Satan still would not give up. So he sabotaged God's first plan for Paradise on Earth in Eden.

The devil continues to wage war with God and the believers even to this day, see 1 Peter 5:8.

Though Satan lost his power to create life itself, he still has the power to genetically engineer evil versions of already existing plants and animals: poison ivy, venomous snakes, saber-toothed tigers, vampire bats, as well as harmful bacteria and viruses such as syphilis, AIDS, smallpox and polio.

Man has already the potential to eradicate all crocodiles and alligators from existence. And man can already launch an expurgatory war against sharks, piranhas, lamprey eels, and other vile creatures of Satan's menagerie.

But to date, man has chosen to eradicate from the wild only one member of Satan's brood: smallpox!

Under the guise of maintaining the balance of nature, man has unwittingly included the conservation of Satan's lifeforms.

But in Christ, the Lord God is already destined to wrest the Earth from Satan's grip, and to destroy his seed once and for all, see Revelation 20:10, 15.

Satan loves weapons of mass destruction, which he would like us to use against ourselves. But we should instead use them against Satan's brood.

It will be interesting to see the result of the Presidential election in the United States later this year.

The question, which remains to be answered, is if the next American President will be the Incredible Hulk Huckabee, or if the Queen of the Bottomless Pit Hillary Clinton will win the Presidential election, or maybe someone else.

Jesus spoke of the parable of the wheat and the tares, see Matthew 13:24 - 30, and 13:36 - 43.

This parable is about the problem and reality of evil mingling with the Godly.

The weeds symbolize lost souls, and the tares represent worldly wisdom, pride, procrastination, and they resemble Christians, but are Christless, moulding their character by Satan's prompting.

The parable of the sower shows that the Kingdom will increase and produce an abundant crop amid hard hearts. For the gates of hell shall not prevail against the growth of the Church, see Matthew 16:18 and Luke 1:33.

Peter was told by Jesus that he was wheat, and that Satan wanted to sift him, hoping to bring him and other disciples to spiritual ruin, see Luke 22:31.

Nevertheless, Jesus prayed for Peter and for the others that they might stand, because Jesus sows His believers among the nations of the world, and compare with Luke 22:32.

There is still room around the cross, and we still live in the age of God's grace, see Acts 2:38, when sinners can be restored to saints, see Jude 1:14.

The parable of the wheat and the tares illustrates those who have responded to the good news of God's present reign in Jesus Christ and those who have not.

The Godly will inherit the Earth and will live there forever, see Matthew 5:5 and Ephesians 3:21, and compare with Revelation 2:28.

This means that Christ will give His followers a fellowship with Himself, and that they shall share His dominion, compare with Revelation 20:9 and 22:5.

The Godly shall shine as the sun in their Father's Kingdom, see Matthew 13:43, because Christ wants everyone to shine for Him and in everyway.

What Is The Church?

Extra Ecclesiam nulla salus.

"In the law it is written, With men of other tongues and other lips will I speak unto this people; and yet for all that will they not hear me, saith the Lord", see 1 Corinthians 14:21.

The salvation and edification of the people is more important than languages, see Revelation 5:9, but "God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints", see 1 Corinthians 14:33.

Originally we received the New Testament in Latin, see http://ohlundonline.blogspot.com/2007/03/jesus-and-original-gospel-in-latin.html.

We should accordingly not look outside the Latin New Testament for understanding the things of God.

"Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent", see Revelation 2:5, and compare with Revelation 3:3.

If today’s languages are legitimate, then we have a contradiction in the Bible, because God said verbal discourse would cease, compare with Revelation 22:18 - 19.

Any languages and teachings, which do not identify with the New Testament standard, compare with John 19:20 and Revelation 9:11, do not have their source in God but in Satan.

"And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie", see 2 Thessalonians 2:11.

"And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh", see Revelation 19:19 - 21, and compare with Luke 19:27.

Thus we know that the Lord God shall be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, and in flaming fire He will take vengeance on His enemies, see 2 Thessalonians 1:8, and compare with Genesis 3:24.

The word Church means "congregation", "gathering", or "assembly".

In the New Testament the Church is described as the People of God, the Nation of Israel, the family of God, or the bride of Christ, compare with Revelation 12:1.

As it is written: "In Isaac shall thy seed be called", see Romans 9:7, and "the children of the promise are counted for the seed", see Romans 9:8.

The Universal Church is the Church that consists of all those born again persons, who have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 12:13 says: "For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit", and compare with Ephesians 2:14.

He who therefore comes to Christ, will in no way be cast out, see John 6:37, and the broken hearted will He receive, compare with 2 Corinthians 7:10.

Christ said He would build the eternal Church on the confession of Peter, see Matthew 16:18.

The New Testament Church service will in the future be administered by the Levites, compare with Luke 1:5.

The Levites used to live in Galatia, see Galatians 1:1 - 2: "Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises", see Romans 9:4.

All Christian believers in general are kings and priests, see Revelation 1:6.

"But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy", see 1 Peter 2:9 - 10.

The New Testament Church will be led by 24 elders from Jerusalem - "And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him" - thus 6 elders from each beast, see Revelation 4:6 - 11, and 5:5 - 14.

1 Chronicles chapter 24 lists the 4 divisions of the Priesthood, which Luke 1:5 and Hebrews 7:11 refers to, because "perfection were by the Levitical priesthood".

What then is the purpose of the Church?

The Church is the ideological and political branch of the Christian Nation of Israel - under the Lord God Jesus - which is to conquer the whole Universe to bring it to obedience to God, see Matthew 28:19 -20 and Mark 16:15- 16.

The veil standing between You and eternity is finished, compare with John 19:30.

Thanks to the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ we now have everlasting life, see 1 Corinthians 15:55 and Titus 1:2, and are called the Church, see Matthew 16:18.

The early and latter rains for the grain harvest represent the early and the latter outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

The early rain came at Pentecost.

The latter rain will be outpoured in conjunction with the testimony of the Two Witnesses, see Revelation 11:3.

Jesus promised Himself that "Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things", see Matthew 17:11 and Matthew 27:47 - 49.

Thus the Third Temple will be built in Jerusalem, the worship of the true God will be restored to Israel, and Israel will be completely restored to the Promised Land, compare with Luke 1:32 -33, Acts 1:6, and Deuteronomy 28:13.

After the Two Witnesses are taken away - upon the completion of their testimony, see Revelation 11:12 - the Kingdom of God will thus be fully restored.

This is what incites the 24 elders to fall down and worship God in chapters 4 and 5 of the Book of Revelation.
