Revelation 3: 21; “To those who win the victory I will give the right to sit beside me on my throne, just as I have been victorious and now sit by my Father on his throne.”
Revelation 2: 26-28; “To those who win the victory, who continue to the end to do what I want, I will give the same authority that I received from my Father: I will give them authority over the nations, to rule them with an iron rod and to break them to pieces like clay pots.”
Zechariah 14: 1-3; The day when the LORD will sit in judgement is near. Then Jerusalem will be looted, and the loot will be divided up before your eyes. The LORD will bring all the nations together to make war on Jerusalem. The city will be taken, the houses looted, and the women raped. Half the people will go into exile, but the rest of them will not be taken away from the city. Then the LORD will go out and fight against those nations, as he has fought in times past.
The Future Deliverance of Jerusalem.
Zechariah 12: 9-10; At that time, I will destroy every nation that tries to attack Jerusalem.
“I will fill the descendants of David and the other people of Jerusalem with the spirit of mercy and the spirit of prayer. They will look at the one whom they pieced, and they will mourn for him like those who mourn for an only child.
Isaiah 63: 1-6; “Who is this coming from the city of Bozrah in Edom? Who is this so splendidly dressed in red, marching along in power and strength?”
“It is the LORD, powerful to save, coming to announce his victory.”
“Why is his clothing so red, like that of someone who tramples grapes to make wine?”
The LORD answers, “I have trampled the nations like grapes, and no one came to help me. I trampled them in my anger, and their blood has stained all my clothing. I decided that the time to save my people had come; it was time to punish their enemies. I was amazed when I looked and saw that there was no one to help me. But my anger made me strong, and I won the victory myself. In my anger I trampled whole nations and shattered them. I poured out their lifeblood on the ground.”
Who do you suppose that the Lord through his prophets is referring to here, other than the one who has been given authority over the nations, to rule them with an iron rod and to break them to pieces like clay pots?”
Acts 17: 31; For he (The Lord) has fixed a day in which he will judge the whole world with justice by means of a 'MAN
' he has 'CHOSEN
'. He has given proof of this to everyone by raising that 'MAN
' from death!”
The day that the Lord has fixed, is the great Sabbath of one thousand years, of which the weekly Sabbath was but a shadow of that coming reality. See Colossians 2; 16-17.
