A woman caught in adultery. Gospel of John, Chapter 8 verses 1-11:

-“But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. When they kept un questioning, he straightened up and said to them, “If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone on her”. Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground. At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older one first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there. Jesus straightened up and asked her, “Woman, where are they? Has no-one condemned you?” “No-one, sir,” she said. “Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin”, John 8,6-11.

Apocalypse of Jesus Christ – Revelation is the last book in the Bible. It is a prophetic book written by Apostel John under his deportation to the island Patmos. John in in prison on Patmos under the roman emperor Domitian (81-96).

Apostel John has in decades been principal elder of the christian church i Efesus, Asia Minor. After the destruction of Jerusalem and its third temple in 70 A.C. the christian churches in Antioch and in the cities of Asia Minor and in Greece are under severe persecutions from the roman authorities. The emperors of the Roman Empire living in Rome demands, that all inhabitants of The Roman Empire must worship the Roman Emperor as God. The christians refuge to do that, and openly preach and teach in public, that there is only One Almighty God –  God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob revealed through The Holy Bible and the testimony of life and teaching of the Son of God and the Son of Man JESUS CHRIST, his sacrificing death on Calvary Cross, his resurrection of the grave, his ascension and through the out pouring of The Holy Spirit upon the disciples on the Day of Pentecost – ONE TRUE ALMIGHTY GOD: GOD the FATHER, GOD the SON and GOD the HOLY SPIRIT, Acts 2,1-47.

Revelation – Apocalypse of Jesus Christ is a prophetic book, which reveals what HAS happen, what happen JUST NOW and what WILL happen in the FUTURE.

Revelation is a book, which reveals Jesus Christ as the Lamb Slain sitting on God the Father´s right hand on the Throne of God in Heaven, Revelation 7,9-17.

Revelation is a book, which reveals the church of Jesus Christ – the Bride of Jesus Christ with its sufferings through all END TIME from the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on Day of Pentecost to the Ascension of believers – The Rapture, 1. Thessalonians 4,13-18 and the Second Coming of Jesus Christ as  “-The Rider on the White Horse”, Revelation 19,11-21.

Revelation is a book, which reveals Jesus Christ´s victory over God´s opponent Satan, the Devil and the fallen angels (Revelation 12,7-12;)  and God´s FINAL JUDGMENT, Revelation 20, 7-15).

Revelation is a book, which reveals The NEW HEAVEN, THE NEW EARTH, THE NEW JERUSALEM and the WATER of LIFE and the free ADMISSION to the TREE of LIFE, Revelation 21,1-8 and 22,1-21) as promised by GOD  in Genesis 2,16-17 and 3,22-24.

Revelation is the final book in The Bible and is a prophetic book which complete the Bible with:

THE FOUNDATION: Genesis chapters 1-11,

SUPERSTRUCTURE: Genesis chapter 12 – Deuteronomy chapter 34: THE LAW (Torah) and all historical-, prophetic- and poets books from book of Joshua to book of Malachi, included all books on New Testament of the Bible from book of Matthew until the book of Jude,

To understand and interpret Revelation – Apocalypse of Jesus Christ needs knowledge, absorption, prayer and revelation by The Holy Spirit, which is the Spirit of Jesu Christ – The Spirit of God.

Hermeneutic is the teaching of the true interpretation of the Bible. Through the history of the church there are 3 most general used methods:

The literal, the historic and the metaphorical method.

In the following I will interpret the text in the Bible in accordance to the literal-historic context, in which the text was written in the original language and from the best translations word to word from the original hebrew and greek text.

Every bible verse must be interpret out from the context and out from other relevant bible verses in Old and New Testament of the Bible. Shortly said: Bible verses interpret other bible verses – all bible verses in Old and New Testament constitute a context, which is the true and whole revelation of The Word of God – THE WORD which became flesh, See John 1,1-3:-“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning”.

Revelation – Apocalypse of Jesus Christ can only be understood through a knowledge of the prophetic books in Old Testament of the Bible among others: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Daniel, Jeremiah, Isaiah, Ezekiel, Psalms, Zechariah, Joel and Haggai.

 

Revelation – Apocalypse of Jesus Christ stands for COMPLETENESS – THE VICTORY AND TRIUMPH OF THE LAMB.

On the Road to Emmaus:

The resurrected Jesus Christ in his glorified body meet two of his disciples on the road to Emmaus, See Luke 24,13-35:

-“Now that same day two of them are going to a village called Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem. They were talking with each other about everything that had happened. As they talked and discussed these things with each other, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them, but they were kept from recognizing him. He asked them, ” What are you discussing together as you walk along?” (Luke 24,13-17a),

-“He said to them, “How foolish you are, and how slow of heart to believe all tha the prophets have spoken! Did not the Christ have to suffer these things and then enter his glory?” And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself. (Luke, 24,25-27).

The resurrected Jesus and his disciples (Luke 24,33-53):

-“They got up and returned at once to Jerusalem. There they found the Eleven and those with them, assembled together and saying, “It is true! The Lord has risen and has appeared to Simon.” Then the two told what had happened on the way, and how Jesus was recognized by them when he broke the bread. While they were still talking about this, Jesus himself stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.” (Luke 24,33-37).

-“He said to them,”This is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, The Prophets and the Psalms”. Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures. He told them, “This is what is written: The Christ will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and repentance and forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning in Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things. I am going to send you what my Father have promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from the high.” (Luke 24,44-49).

The Ascension (Luke 24,50-53):

-“When he had led them out to the vicinity of Bethany, he lifted up his hands and blessed them. While he was blessing them, he left them and was taken up into heaven. Then they worshipped him and returned to Jerusalem with great joy. And they stayed continually at the temple, praising God”. (Luke 24,50-53).

All this events occurs about 30-33 A.C.

Patmos in the Aegaen Sea.

The good news of the salvation by the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on Calvary Cross began about 30 A.C. from Jerusalem to Samaria, Galilee, Antioch, Asia Minor, Greece and Rome.

John in prison on Patmos under the roman emperor Domitian (81-96).

This is the beginning  of fulfillment of the word of Jesus, (Matthew 28,18-20):

-“The Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teach them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

The New Jerusalem, Revelation 21, 1-27.

 

The new heaven and the new earth 21,1-8 and The new Jerusalem 21,1-27:

-” Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and he their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away”, Revelation 21,1-4.

 

-“a new heaven and a new earth”, Revelation 21,1a:

Heaven and earth will be recreated (greek kainos= new) in a new quality. There will be a NEW heaven and a NEW earth  – the old earth and heaven which have been slowly destroyed since The Fall of Man (Genesis 3,1-24), when mankind lost the presence of God in their daily life. Mankind was separated from God and his love, wisdom, knowledge and guidance. Mankind walked on his own way full of sin, selfishness, egoism, dominion and false worship and false understanding of God Almighty. Mankind has since The Fall of Man lived under the brutal dominion of Satan and the fall angels, which have done enormous misery to mankind and the earth individually and collectively:

-“The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, and their ways are vile; there is no-one who does good. God looks from heaven on the sons of men to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God. Everyone has turned away, they have together become corrupt; there is no-one who does good, not even one. Will the evildoers learn – those who devour my people as men eat bread and who do not call on God?  There they were, overwhelmed with dread, where there was nothing to dread. God scattered the bones of those who attacked you; you put them to shame, for God despised them. Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion! When God restores the fortunes of his people, let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad”. Psalm 53,1-6.

-“As it is written: “There is no righteous, not even one; there is no-one who understands, no-one who seeks God. All have turned away, they have together become worthless; there is no-one who does good, not even one. Their throats are open graves; their tongues practise deceit. He poison of vipers is on their lips. Their months are full of cursing and bitterness. Their feet are swift to shed blood; ruin, and misery mark their ways, and the way of peace they do not know. There is no fear of god before their eyes”, Romans 3,1-18. (see also Ecclesiastes 7,20).

 

-“I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed to us. The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed. For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into glorious freedom of the children of God”, Romans 8,18-21. Note NIV Study Bible Romans 8,19. sons of God to be revealed. Christians are already sons of God, but the full manifestation of all that this means will not come until the end (see 1 Jn 3,1-2).

-“Jesus said to them,”I tell you the truth, at the renewal of all things, when the Son of Man sits on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also  sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel”, Matthew 19,28.

Peter Speaks to the Onlookers, Acts 3,17-23:

-“Now, brothers, I know that you acted in ignorance, as did your leaders. But this is how God fulfilled what he had foretold through all the prophets, saying that Christ would suffer. Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord, and that he may send the Christ, who has been appointed for you – even Jesus. He must remain in heaven until the time comes for God to restore everything, as he promised long ago through his holy prophets. For Moses said, ” The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your own people; you must listen to every  thing he tells you. Anyone who does not listen to him will be completely cut off from among his people”,” Acts 3,17-23.

The new Jerusalem 21,8-27:

-“One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven plagues came and said to me, “Come, I will show you the bride, The wife of the Lamb”. And he carried me away in the Spirit to a mountain great and high, and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God. It shone with the glory of God, and its brilliance was like that of a very precious jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal. It had a great, high wall with twelve gates, and with twelve angels at the gates. On the gates were written the names of the twelve tribes of Israel. There were three gates on the east, three on the north, three on the south and three on the west. The wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb”, Revelation, 21,9-14.(See also Ezekiel 48,30-35: -“And the name of the city from that time on will be: THE LORD IS THERE,” Ezekiel 48,35b).

 -“I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband”, Revelation 21,1.

 

The new Jerusalem is a metaphor of The Bride of Jesus Christ: ALL saved under The Law (Torah) by FAITH and under the NEW COVENANT by The Redemption of the perfect sacrifice of Jesus – The Son of Man on Calvary Cross.

The Bride of The Lamb has its foundations of THE NEW COVENANT and of the teaching of the twelve apostles AND THE OLD COVENANT and of God´s chosen people the twelve tribes of Israel.

 

-“I did not see a temple in the city, because the Lord God Almighty and the lamb are in the temple. The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the lamb is its lamp, The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their splendor into it. On no day will its gates ever be  shut, for there will be no night there. The glory and honour of the nations will be brought into it. Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb´s book of life”. Revelation 21,22-27.

-“The angel who talked with me had a measuring rod of gold to measure the city, its gates and its walls. The city was laid out like a square, as long as it was wide. He measured the city with the rod and found it to be 12.000 stadia in length, and as wide and high as it is long. He measured its wall and it was 144 cubits thick, by man´s measurement, which the angel was using. The wall was made of jasper, and the city of pure gold, as pure as glass. The foundations of the city walls were decorated with every kind of precious stone”, Revelation 21,15-19.

-“The city was laid out like a square, as long as it was wide”, Revelation 21,16a:

This is a metaphor of THE BRIDE OF JESUS CHRIST = all saved through The OLD and the NEW COVENANT. The atonement sacrifice of Jesus Christ on Calvary Cross opened the admission to the MOST HOLY area of the Temple – into the presence of God the Almighty: -“It was now about the sixth hour, and darkness came over the whole land until the ninth hour, for the sun stopped shining. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two. Jesus called out with a loud voice, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit”. When he had said this, he breathed his last”, Luke 23,44-46.

The MOST HOLY PLACE of the temple in Jerusalem is ” a square, as long as it was wide”, Revelation  21,16a and Ezekiel 41,3-4.

 

All saved who have their names written in the Lamb´s book of life, will be resurrected in a GLORIOUS BODY united with their SPIRIT and SOUL together in the PRESENCE of GOD THE FATHER, GOD THE SON and GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT:

 

First Resurrection: -“Blessed and holy are those who have part in the first resurrection. The second death has no power over them, but they will be priest of God and of Christ and will reign with him for a thousand years, Revelation 20,6.

Resurrection of ALL mankind after the thousand years:

The Final Judgement by Jesus Christ on the great white throne in heaven:

-“And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened”, Revelation 20,12.

All unsaved people through all times of earth history will arise from the death and Hades (grave) and will stand in their resurrected body, soul and spirit before the white throne in heaven.

-“Another  book was opened, which is the book of life”, Revelation 20,12.

 All those men and woman through all history and whose names are NOT written in THE BOOK OF LIFE will be judged what is written in the books:

-“The dead was judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books”, Revelation 20,12

and

-“and each person was judged according to what he had done”, Revelation 20,13.

 

The Second Death and The Lake of Fire, Revelation 20,14-15:

-” Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death. If anyone´s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire, Revelation 20,14-15.

 

The End Times, Daniel 12,1-13:

-“At that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will arise. There will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people – everyone whose name is founds written in the book – will be delivered. Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt. Those who are wise will shine like brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever. But you, Daniel, close up and seal the words of the scroll until the time of the end. Many will go here and there to increase knowledge, Daniel 12,1-4.

-“Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt”, (Daniel 12,2), Note The NIV Study Bible Daniel 12,2: The first clear reference to a resurrection of both the righteousness and the wicked. Cf. Jn 5,24-30.

 

 

The River of Life and the Tree of Life 22, 1-5.

The River of Life, Revelation 22,1-5:

-“Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for healing of the nations. No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him. They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign for ever and ever”, Revelation 22,1-5.

The River from the Temple, Ezekiel 47, 1-12:

-“The man brought me back to the entrance of the temple, and I saw water coming out from under the threshold of the temple towards the east (for the temple faced east). The water was coming down from under the south side of the temple, south of the altar”, Ezekiel 47,1.

The LORD Comes and Reigns, Zechariah 14, 1-21:

-“On that day there will be no light, no cold or frost. It will be a unique day, without daytime or night time – a day known to the LORD. When evening comes there will be light. On that day living water will flow out from Jerusalem, half to eastern sea and half to western sea, in summer and in winter. The LORD will be king over the whole earth. On that day there will be one LORD, and his name the only name”, Zechariah 14,6-9 and see Deuteronomy 6,4: -“Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength”.

 

The Tree of Life 22, 1-5:

-“On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month”, Revelation 22,2.

-“In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of knowledge of good and evil“, Genesis 2,9b.

Note Gen. 2,9 The NIV Study Bible. tree of life. Signifying and giving life, without death, to those who eat its fruit (see 3,22; Rev 2,7; 22,2.14). tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Signifying and giving knowledge of good and evil, leading ultimately to death, to those who eat its fruit (v. 17; 3,3).”Knowledge of good and evil” refers to moral knowledge or ethical discernment (see Dt 1,39; Isa 7;15-16). Adam and Eve possessed both life and moral discernment as they came from the hand of God. Their access to the fruit of the tree of life showed that God´s will and intention for them was life. Ancient pagans believed that the gods intended man always to be mortal. In eating the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of goof and evil, Adam and Eve sought a creaturely source of discernment in order to be morally independent of God.

 

The Fall of Man, Genesis 3,1-24:

-“The LORD God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them. And the LORD God said, “The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live for ever. So the LORD God banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken. After he drove the man out, he placed on the east side of the Garden of Eden cherubim and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life”, Genesis3,21-24.

Note Gen. 3,21 The NIV Study Bible clothed them. God graciously provided Adam and Eve with more effective clothing (cf. v. 7) to cover their shame (cf. v. 10).

Note Gen. 3,22 The NIV Study Bible us. See note on 1,26. knowing good and evil. In a terribly perverted way, Satan´s prediction (v.5) came true. live for ever. Sin, which always results in death (Ro 6,23: Jas 1,14-15), cuts the sinner off from God´s gift of eternal life.

Copy from my article “Apocalypse of Jesus Christ – PART 6”:

Copy start:

 

May God help you to understand the salvation by Jesus Christ and the wonderful life in close relation to God through his Son Jesus Christ.

I pray for you, that you will give your life to Jesus Christ and learn to know God and experience his forgiveness, love, freedom and holiness.

Ask Jesus Christ to save you and and let Him  fill your heart with the Holy Spirit.

Pray and read in the text of the Bible daily :

Matthew 6,6: (Jesus) – But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

Talk to God as to a father, to Jesus Christ as a friend and led the Holy Spirit guide you in your daily life and your service to God.

Ask The Holy Spirit to reveal to you about sin in your daily life – if so then confess this sin to God, repent and ask Jesus Christ to forgive you. Receive His forgiveness and His grace and fill your body, soul and spirit with the Holy Spirit and let the blood of Jesus Christ shed on Calvary cross cleanse you and heal your entire body, soul and spirit. Do it every day – take time for pray  and bible study“go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father”, (Matthew 6,6).

 

Your POSITION IN CHRIST: The moment you have prayed to God to be saved by the blood of Jesus Christ shed on Calvary Cross your position before God the Almighty is that your are RIGHTEOUS – you are justify by the atonement sacrifice of Jesus Christ on Calvary.

See John 15,3-5: – You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. Remain in me and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.

 

Your CONDITION IN CHRIST the rest of your life here on earth is a PROGRESS – your SANCTIFICATION, where the Holy Spirit in companion with you develop your CHARACTER (it is your intellect, feelings and will) to be Holy. When you are a born again christian the Holy Spirit dwells inside your body, soul and spirit and produces the FRUITS of The Holy Spirit: LOVE, JOY, PEACE, PATIENCE, KINDNESS, GOODNESS, FAITHFULNESS, GENTLENESS and SELF-CONTROL, see Galatians 5,22.

 

 

The BLESSING of salvation:

PSALM 32 (verses 1-2): – Blessed is he whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man whose sin the LORD does not count against him and in whose spirit is no deceit.

PSALMS 32 (Verses 8-11): – I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you. Do not be like the horse of the mule, which have no understanding but must be controlled by bit and bridle or they will not come to you. Many are the woes of the wicked, but the LORD´s unfalling love surrounds the man who trusts in him. Rejoice in the LORD and be glad, you righteous; sing, all you who are upright in heart!

 

 

 

The DAY of PENTECOST is the beginning of:

the TIME of THE HOLY SPIRIT, THE LAST TIMES, THE TIME OF GRACE and THE BIG TRIBULATION before the second coming of Jesus Christ, See: Daniel 7,13-14, Mark 14,62 and “Look, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him; and all the peoples of the earth will mourn because of him. So shall it be! Amen.” Revelation 1,7.

The duration of this period – END TIME, THE TIME OF GRACE – has last about 2000 years and is still going on.

 

It is THE TIME OF GRACE, where THE HOLY SPIRIT call all people all over the world into the SALVATION IN JESUS CHRIST:

 

1. JUSTIFICATION: to stand right in the presence of GOD THE ALMIGHTY by accepting the free gift of forgiveness of SINS by the sacrifice of Jesus on CALVARY CROSS (Your POSITION IN CHRIST) and to be BORN AGAIN and BAPTIZED by THE HOLY SPIRIT with the sign of speaking in other tongues (See Acts 2,4:  “All of the were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them” and Acts 10,46; 19,6),

and

2. SANCTIFICATION: to start the SANCTIFICATION PROCESS (your CONDITION) where the Holy Spirit INSIDE your human spirit produces FRUIT in your CHARACTER, Galatians 5,22:

-” But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law “.

Salvation – to be born again:

To receive forgiveness of sins is a free gift, when you ask the Lord Jesus Christ directly.

Talk directly to Jesus and ask forgiveness of all your sins, repent from your sins in past life, ask the Lord Jesus Christ to clean your body, soul and spirit by his blood on Calvary Cross. Ask Jesus to save you and make Him your savior and Lord in your personal life. Ask the Holy Spirit to come into your heart and to make you holy.

-“The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart,” that is, the word of faith we are proclaiming: That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved”, Romans 10,8-10.

 

A prayer for your salvation:

Dear God Father in Heaven, Holy is your Name,

I come to you with all my life and all my sins. I am sorry of my sinful life separated from you.

Thank you for your Son Jesus Christ, that he died on Calvary Cross as a perfect sacrifice for all sin of mankind and that Jesus Christ is my redeemer.

I believe that Jesus Christ is Son of Man and Son of God, that Jesus Christ is resurrected from the grave and that He is alive and is now sitting on the throne in Heaven at His Father God´s right hand.

I am sorry of my sins, I repent all my sins and I asked forgiveness of all my sins. I ask you Jesus Christ to come into my heart and be my savior and Lord.

I ask The Holy Spirit to fill my body, soul and spirit and give me power to live a holy life under your guidance and protection.

Thank you for saving me and to be a part of the Bride of Jesus Christ.

 

When you have prayed this prayer you are born again and have now a personal relation with God the Almighty through Jesus Christ.

 

To be baptized in The Holy Spirit:

Ask Jesus Christ to baptize you with the Holy Spirit with the sign of speaking in other tongues (See Acts 2,4:  “All of the were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them” and Acts 10,46; 19,6). Its a gift from God to you, receive in faith and have courage to practice it for the first time by led your tongue flow in an audible voice in your praise and love to God.

The Holy Spirit will give you power and strength to live a holy christian personal life with strength, knowledge and wisdom.

The Holy Spirit within you, upon you and with you will give your christian life guidance and victory.

 

Summary about salvation:

 

Today it is still The Time of Grace, where God calls all mankind to give their life to God the Almighty through Jesus Christ by his sacrifice on Calvary Cross. This time of Grace will continue until The Second Coming of Jesus Christ at the end of THE BIG TRIBULATION TIME of 3,5 + 3,5 years = 7 years: the last “week” of the 70 “weeks” (See Daniel 9,25-27).

The RAPTURE of THE BODY OF JESUS CHRIST= THE BRIDE OF JESUS CHRIST will happen BEFORE The Big Tribulation Time of 7 years.  In The Big Tribulation Time people will still be saved, but Antichrist, The False Prophet under influence and dominion of Satan over ALL nations will execute by killing all saved individuals if there do not receives the mark of the beast on there forehead or on their right hand.

All saved – born again by receiving Jesus Christ in their heart will, when they die, wake up in Heaven with their soul and spirit –  at the same moment they die. They will continue their eternal life in the presence of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, because they, when they lived on earth, had made their personal decision to receive Jesus Christ in their heart as their savior and Lord.

All saved will stand before Jesus Christ on his Judgment Seat in Heaven to receive their REWARD of how they have used their talents, gifts and fruits of The Holy Spirit, when serving God and guided by The Holy Spirit in their christian life on earth. All their names are written in THE BOOK OF LIFE. They will all receive their RESURRECTED BODY – THEIR GLORIFICATION and are now and for ever and ever perfect humans in their BODY, SOUL AND SPIRIT – all perfect creations by God The Almighty in his WILL:

-” I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony for Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshipped the beast of his image and had not received his mark on their foreheads or their hands”, Revelation 20,4a.

-“They came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years (The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended.) This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy are those who have part in the first resurrection. The second death has no power over them, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with him for a thousand years”, Revelation 2o,4b-6.

All saved will NOT come before THE FINAL JUDGMENT and will NOT be judged to THE SECOND DEATH, which is the eternal existence of the unsaved persons body, soul and spirit in HELL together with the all the fallen angels, demons, the false prophet, antichrist and Satan.

 

At THE FINAL JUDGMENT by Jesus Christ ALL UNSAVED people will be judged through what is written in THE BOOKS, which is their life stories of all their thoughts, talks and acts, when they lived on earth. This eternal judgment is in the presence of all angels in heaven. Its a FINAL judgement and you cannot and are not allowed to speak. You will receive your eternal judgment, because you know that GOD is LOVE AND HOLY AND JUST. Its a judgement of all unsaved with a concious existence SEPARATED from God for ever and ever in THE LAKE OF FIRE:

-“Then death and hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death. If anyone´s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire”, Revelation 20,14-15.

 

Judgement by Jesus Christ:

Philippians, 2,5-11:

-“Your attitude should be the same of Christ Jesus:

Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death – even death on a cross! Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory God the father”, Philippians 2,4-11.

John 5,22 – 23:
-“Moreover, the Father judges no-one, but has entrusted all judgment to the Son, that all may honour the Son just as they honour the Father. He who does not honour the Son does not honour the father, who sent him”, John 5,22-23.

John 3,1-18:

-“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does nor believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God´s one and only Son”, John 3,16-18.

By Faith – its a close relationship with God the Father through the love and grace of Jesus Christ and His perfect sacrifice on Calvary Cross for all sin of mankind in past, present and future:

-” Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” Hebrews 11,1.

 

 

 

The Ascension (Luke 24,50-53):

-“When he had led them out to the vicinity of Bethany, he lifted up his hands and blessed them. While he was blessing them, he left them and was taken up into heaven. Then they worshipped him and returned to Jerusalem with great joy. And they stayed continually at the temple, praising God”, (Luke 24,50-53).

-And with copy from my article:

How to understand Jesus teaching about to be born again and his freely sacrificing death on Calvary Cross

Our LORDs prayer (Matthew 6,9-13):

Jesus: “This, then, is how you should pray:

-Our Father in heaven, hallowed be  your name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one”.

 

Who is the Holy Spirit?

 

Names of the Holy Spirit in Old and New Testament:

 

Spirit of God, 2. Chronicles 24,20: -Then the Spirit of God came upon Zechariah son of Jehoiada the priest. He stood before the people and said: This is what God says: “Why do you disobey the LORDS´s commands? You will not prosper. Because you have forsaken the LORD, he has forsaken you.

Matthew 12.28: – (Jesus) – But if I drive out demons by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come upon you.

Jesu Christ Spirit:  Philippians 1, 19: (Apostel Paulus): – Yes, and I will continue to rejoice, for I know that through yours prayers and the help given by the Spirit of Jesus Christ, what has happened to me will turn out for my deliverance.

2. Peter 10-11: – Concerning this salvation, the prophet, who spoke of the grace they was to come to you, searched intently and with greatest care, trying to find out the time and circumstances to which the Spirit of Christ in them was pointing when he predicted the sufferings of Christ and glories that would follow. (See also: 2. Peter 1,20-21: – Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet´s own interpretation. For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but man spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit).

Spirit of wisdom, Spirit of counsel, Spirit of power and spirit of knowledge, Isaiah 11,2: – The Spirit of the LORD will rest on him – The Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of power, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD – and he will delight in the fear of the LORD. ( The Spirit of the LORD will rest of him = MESIAH will be empowered by the Holy Spirit).

Spirit of truth, John 15,26: – When the Counsellor comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father, he will testify about me. And you also must testify, for you have been with me from the beginning. 1. John 5,6: This is the one who came by water and blood – Jesus Christ. He did not come by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth.

Spirit of revelation, Ephesians 1,17: – I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better.

The Spirit of grace and supplication, Zechariah 12,10: – ” And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication. They will look on me, the one they have pierced, and they will mourn for him as one mourn for an only child, and grieve bitterly for him as one grieves for a firstborn son.

Spirit of glory, 1. Peter 4,13-14: –  But rejoice that you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted because of the name of Christ you are bless, for the Spirit of glory and of God rest on you.

The Counsellor, John 14,25-27: – All this I have spoken while still with you. But the Counsellor, The Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.Peace I leave you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let yours hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

 

GOD´s WORD:

Hebrews 4,12-13:

-For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God´s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.

2. Timothy 3,16:

-All Scripture is God-breathed and useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly  equipped for every good work.

-And the following quotations form New  and Old Testament in The Holy Bible:

Hebrews 1,1-4:  (quote) – In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in  various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things , and through whom he made the universe. The Son is the radiance of God´s glory and exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven. So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is superior to theirs. (Unquote)

Romans 8,1-11: (quote) – Therefore, there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law was powerless to do in that it was weakened by the sinful nature, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful man to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in sinful man, in order that the righteous requirements of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live in according to the sinful nature but according to the Spirit. (Unquote)

Jude verses 24-25: (quote) – To him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy – to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and for evermore! Amen (Unquote)

Revelation 22,17: – The Spirit and the say “Come!” And let him who hears say “Come!” Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take fhe free gift of the water of life. (unquote),

Revelation 22,20-21: (quote) – He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon.” Amen, Come, Lord Jesus. The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God´s people. Amen. (Unquote)

and

Hebrews 4,14-16: -Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathise with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way , just as we are — yet was without sin. Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

 

BELIEVE:

Hebrews 11,1: – Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.

Matthew 11,28-30: – (Jesus): “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

KNOWLEDGE, UNDERSTANDING and WISDOM:

Proverbs 3,13-18: – Blessed is the man who finds wisdom, the man who gains understanding, for she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold. She is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her. Long life is in her right hand; in her left hand are riches and honor. Her ways are pleasant ways, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to those who embrace her; those who lay hold of her will be blessed. By wisdom the LORD laid the earth´s foundations, by understanding he set the heavens in place; by knowledge the deeps were divided, and the clouds let drop the dew.

Proverbs 5,1-2: -My son, pay attention to my wisdom, listen well to my words of insight, that you may maintaindiscretion and your lips may preserve knowledge.

JUDGMENT and DISCERNMENT:

Proverbs 3, 19-26: – My son, preserve sound judgment and discernment, do not let them out of your sight; they will be life for you, an ornament to grace your neck.  Then you will go on your way in safety, and your foot will nor ttumble; when you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet. Have no fear of sudden disaster or of the ruin that overtake the wicked, for the LORD will be your confidence and will keep your foot from being snared.

 

May God bless you, that you will receive from the Holy Spirit the understanding, knowledge and wisdom of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on Calvary Cross.

And may Jesus Christ show to you his love, grace, forgiveness and salvation.

And may God call you to open your heart and give your life to His Son Jesus Christ, Revelation 3,20: – (Jesus) “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me”.

Philippians 4, 4-7; – Rejoice in the LORD always, I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all.The LORD is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every thing, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

I finish this article with all the hopes in Psalm 98,1-9 with the words: -“The LORD has made his salvation known and revealed his righteousness to the nations”, Psalm 98,2.

“-Sing to the LORD a new song, for he has done marvelous things, his right hand and his holy arm have worked salvation for him. The LORD has made his salvation known and revealed his righteousness to the nations.  He has remembered his love and his faithfulness to the house of Israel; all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God. Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth, burst into jubilant song with music; make music to the LORD with the harp, with the harp and the sound of singing, with trumpets and the blast of the ram´s horn – shout for joy before the LORD, the King. Let the sea resound, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it. Let the rivers clap their hands, let the mountains sing together for joy; Let them sing before the LORD, for he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world in righteousness and the peoples with equity,”, Psalm 98,1-9.

and Psalm 23,1-6:

-“The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name´s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me, your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me an the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil, my cup overflows. Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

 

May GOD bless you!

In my article:

“How to understand Jesus teaching about being born again and his freely sacrificing death on Calvary Cross” (See my homepage Danculture.dk and click on category “Spiritualitet”) I have written my christian testimony how I got free of occult bondages from the powers of darkness of the false religions Hinduism, Buddhism and New Age. Under my “one year hitchhike around the world” 1965-66 I got involved in foretelling atmy visit and stay in the home of a hill tribe medicine man practicing shamanism in the jungle near Chiang Mai in NorthThailand 18-21. july 1966. In 1968 I became initiated to the false religion Hinduism through The Trancendental Meditation Movement (T.M.).

In may, june and july 1987 God called me to give my life to his son Jesus Christ and with help from 3 charismatic priests and the charisma gifts of The Holy Spirit I was delivered the 8. july 1987 from the powers of darkness and received the salvation (born again) by God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit in the name of Jesus Christ through his sacrifice on Calvary Cross, and next day 9. july 1987 BAPTISED by THE HOLY SPIRIT with the sign of speaking in other tongues (See Acts 2,4:  “All of the were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them” and Acts 10,46; 19,6) and was filled with his peace, freedom, love and joy in my heart. On 9. august 1987 I was baptised in water to my saviour and Lord Jesus Christ in the name of the Father, of the the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Matthew 28,19.

From 1. september 1987 – 1. june 1988 i attended full time pentecostal bible school “Elim” in Copenhagen.
