Our Daily Bread: The Times To Come: The Body of Christ must work together:
Good Wednesday morning it’s July 21, 2021, I pray all is well. In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen!
A Song of Praise
The Lord is my strength and my song; He has become my salvation. This is the day which the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. The Lord is God, and He has given us light. You are my God, and I will give thanks to You; You are my God, I will extoll You. O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; for His steadfast love endures forever! Psalm 118:14,24, 27, 28-29
Prayer of Enlightenment
Having received this new day as a gift, I thank You, Holy Trinity, for Your goodness and patience You were not wrathful with me, and idler and sinner, neither have You cast me down in my sins. But You have shown Your love towards me and have guided me to keep my daily watch and to glorify Your power. Enlighten my mind to study Your word and open my heart to understand Your teachings in Scripture. Help me to apply what I learn and to praise You with all of my heart and glorify Your holy name, Father, Son and the Holy Spirit, now and forever. Amen.
“With the times ahead the Body of Christ must come together as one. As a Church if we remain divided, we remain ignorant & open the door to the Evil One’s deception.”
JPCE Spiritual Talk
Today’s Reading and Scripture Plan:
Our Daily Bread: JOB 2:1-18: JOB Loses His Health, & His Friends visit him
Times To Come Bible Study: Revelation 6:1-17, scripture work and breakdown, comparing today’s trouble times with scripture as it is written.
2:1-3: Lucifer (Satan) has no future: He has already been defeated and St. Gregory says since this is the case the Lord is basically leading Satan around only for the impotence of his pride. St. Hesychius teaches us that Satan cannot even speak without first receiving permission from God.
2:4-6: Satan was unable to understand how Job could seek salvation over saving his own skin- that is his life. This reminds me of a scripture in the Bible: Matthew 10:28: And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in [a]hell. Remember Matthew 10:28 next time you are overwhelmed with evil and the tribulations of the world. I can see why Yeshua (Jesus) preached more about Hell, and the importance of choosing a life of repentance or eternity in torment.
2:7: Since the beginning Satan has been on a quest to destroy the Body of Christ he has waged a war against all of God’s people.
2:8: Job’s suffering can be seen as Christ on the Cross. He came “in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh” (Romans 8:3). It’s all about repentance of sins, and loving God with all of your heart; in spirit and in truth.
2:9: St. Hesychius, teaches that Satan recruited Job’s wife, no different than when he recruited Eve in the Garden of Eden. This passage is all about enduring to the end, “He who endures to the end will be saved” (Matthew 10:22).
2:15: Job did not sin with his lips: Yeshua (Jesus) teaches us that during persecution we are not to use expressions and sin against God, but that we never launch words of attacks against our adversaries. Silence as we are taught is our greatest weapon!
2:16-18: Job’s three friends came to visit him to comfort him. They thought they understood him, but it seemed they did not.
Times to Come: Revelation 6:1-17 Seals One-Six
6:1-17: The Lamb Yeshua (Jesus) is opening the Seals, John goes into his description of what he sees of the end to come. Yeshua (Jesus) gives us great details in (Matthew 24; Mark 13; & Luke 21). The Seals or Man’s judgments consequences of our sins, and will continue until the 2nd coming of Christ. The Four Horsemen: see (Zechariah 1:8-17; 6:1-8). Through the Prophets, God has threatened judgments on the faithless: war, famine, plagues, and natural disasters. Things have been heating up lately, maybe we are getting a wake up call?
6:2: According to my Orthodox study Bible, and from what I have learned on my own. The first rider (on the white horse, carrying a bow) is symbolizing deception, the Antichrist, and how he would appear Christ-like. Coming to the world has a beacon of hope and doing and saying great things, the rise of the New World Order; the Bible warns of this
6:3-4: the second rider represents war, violent bloodshed, and death- REMOVAL OF PEACE FROM THE EARTH. If we look at the first rider, Yeshua (Jesus) predicted “wars and rumors of wars'' (Matthew 24:6). What happens when the restrainer is removed? Defund the police and ICE on the rise… The Churches will soon face worldwide persecutions
6:5-6: The third rider represents famine and inflation, and frequent bloodshed from wars and rumors of wars. Both famine and inflation is on the rise both here in the US as well as Globally. To think otherwise is just a deflection from the obvious truths. Wars and bloodshed on the rise, Nations on the brink of civil unrest, many looking to a Third world war to usher in the New world order.
6:7-8: The fourth rider represents worldwide human death and destruction, and the pale green being the color of rotting flesh. More pestilences like Pandemics, and followed up by more famine and warfare. Our Global Climate chaos will continue to ravage the planet causing food shortages leading to worldwide famine. This problem is now inevitable, and pandemics will continue whether man made
or natural, we are already seeing new COVID variants. Wars and World War 3 are also inevitable, it seems everything is falling in place with scripture.
6:9-11: The cry of Martyrs in the end times during the Tribulation. They are pleading out to God to end their persecution so Christ can finish His plans for the world. The martyrs are in a white robe, and it is a Jewish symbol of resurrection from the dead. The other meaning is blessedness, good deeds, innocence, victory, purity, new and eternal life. Transfiguration, a resurrected and glorified body, vesting in Christ, and wedding garment of salvation. Visions of the end times the souls of the martyrs under the altar.
6:12-17: The sixth Seal represents Cosmic disturbances, signs referring to the 2nd coming of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. The Bible goes into great detail about watching the heavens for the signs of His soon 2nd coming. Been lots of weird stuff in the skies lately I’m just saying, and lots of people rebel against God these days.
“COME AND SEE”
(John 1:39, John 1:45-46, Revelation 6:1,3,5, and 7)
Tomorrow we will cover 2 Corinthians 6:1-18 and 2 Corinthians 7:1-16: The Marks of Apostleship Living a life like Christ: A Plea for Holiness and a Desire & Diligence. Thank you all for the thoughts and prayers. I woke up feeling better than previous days, we are all family in Christ, and we all look out for each other.
Closing The Lord’s Prayer:
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For Yours is the Kingdom, the power and the glory of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, now and forever. Amen.
