As I sat down to begin writing for this issue, there was a sweet expectation of what the Lord would do. My studies soon went in a direction I was not anticipating. I was overcome and distinctly heard these words, “Show them My heart. I have redeemed them!”
The Word of God is one of the most amazing things available to us in this world. Either by the written word of the Bible or the supernatural breathed Word of God through the Holy Spirit, once a person embraces Him, the joy of His presence, His truth, His majesty, cannot be mistaken. His sheep know His voice! It is not about religion; it is about a relationship with the Spirit of Truth and the Word of God (John 1:1-17) through the Holy Spirit. Loving God with all your heart (desires, purpose, core), all your soul (spirit, inner man), and all your mind (understanding, your way of thinking) is the first and great commandment (see Matthew 22:36-38).
I pray that all those who read this see His heart. See His love for His Bride. See Him as the everlasting, all-powerful Spirit of Truth, who came down from on high to be among us and make a way back to Him despising the sin and shame. All are welcome! See His warning for those not yet sealed. And for those sealed unto God, give all to the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ!
We have entered into unprecedented times with the disruptions of all the world’s systems. However, for the Body of Christ, it will be a glorious reunion with the Kingdom of God. Throughout the Bible, God supplies the needs of His people, protects, and keeps His Word, whether to satisfy His justice or confirm His grace and mercy. God’s Word will never fall away and is final. What God says, He means, and if He said it, you can fully trust that it will come to pass, whether it is the correction and provision upon those who believe or the righteous judgments upon the enemies of God.

THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST
The Apostle John wrote the book of Revelation of Jesus Christ. Given to him by God, it shows all the events that have been established and that which will unfold. He wrote the book while a prisoner on the Greek Island of Patmos in the Aegean Sea. Revelation chapter one, verse three, declares, “Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near.” Through the testimony of Jesus Christ, God reveals to His people what to expect and what to prepare for. John is told by Jesus to write down the things he has seen, the things which exist, and things that will occur in the future (Revelation 1:19).
John addresses the seven churches in Asia and reveals what they must work on to be prepared in the last days in chapters two and three. In chapter four, after John sees the churches, he views an open door in heaven and is called up in the Spirit to the throne room of God and shown the things that must happen.
“After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.” Revelation 4:1-2
Let’s look at the following words from the scripture above, “things which must be hereafter.” These events will occur; they are necessary and will come into existence in sequence. The word hereafter is significant. It is the Greek word meta which means accompaniment, with, after, behind, association, succession, proximity, transfer, sequence. So, there will be a series of events occurring simultaneously in heaven (spirit) and on earth (physical world).
“And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.” Revelation 5:9-10
In chapter five, we read about the Lamb, slain before the foundation of the earth, who is the only one worthy of taking the scroll and opening the seven seals (see Revelation 5:9-10). He was slain, mortally wounded, and He “redeemed us to God by the blood,” back to the eternal Spirit of Truth. The word redeemed is the Greek word agorazo, which means to be in the marketplace, do business there, buy or sell, and go to the market to purchase. The Lamb of God paid the debt of sin–death–by entering the marketplace (the den of thieves), the physical earth, through God’s supernatural means. He was a pure seed of God, planted in a woman who would pass the tests of the marketplace on earth and remained seated in the house of God within His Spirit.
The Lamb of God In The Earth: Jesus Christ
Led by the Spirit, Jesus, the Christ, did not succumb to the temptations of the Devil, even after His physical body was weak from fasting forty days and forty nights. He passed all three categories of temptation: refused to turn the stones to bread, refused to test God, and refused to bow His Spirit to the ruling spirit of the Devil (Matthew 4:1-11). There are only three kinds of sin in the world, and all sin falls within their bounds: lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life (1 John 2:16). These three criteria define what the world’s fruit is and has no part in the Father. When the Bible says He is perfect in all His ways, the Word of the Lord is tried, He is a buckler to all those who trust in Him (Psalm 18:30), and it declares, as does Revelation 5:9, that He is worthy and He has redeemed us to God by His blood!
The Revelation continues in chapter six, where the Lamb breaks open the first of the six seals. Our focus will be on the period between the sixth seal and the seventh seal of tribulation. This is where the angels mark the children of Israel and those of the Lamb. The first through sixth seals are found in Revelation chapter six.

CHAPTER SEVEN: SERVANTS OF GOD SEALED IN THEIR FOREHEADS
“And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.” Revelation 7:1
Now let me zero in on some things very relevant to today. In Revelation 7:1, the four angels are standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth. The word corner is the Greek word gonia which means an external angle, a corner, or an internal corner, i.e., a secret place; a quarter. It is related to the word gonu, which means to kneel down. Think of a corner and how it kneels or bends to make the angle. The angels are holding back the four violent, fierce winds of God’s wrath.
“And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.” Revelation 7:2-3
Now, the scene changes, an angel from the east, chosen by God to ascend to the earth carrying the seal, the signet, the mark of the living God. He cries out to the four angels to not hurt the earth, the sea, or the trees until we have sealed (mark with a seal, confirm, stamp, seal up, keep secret) the servants of God in and the seal rests (to superimpose, distribute) upon their FOREHEADS. The word forehead is the Greek word metopon which means face, forehead, countenance, or eye. It comes from the Greek word meta, which we spoke of earlier and means accompaniment, with, after, behind, association, succession, proximity, transfer, sequence. John then lists those sealed out of the twelve tribes of children of Israel: one hundred and forty-four thousand (Revelation 7:4-8).
Next, John saw a great multitude, too many to number, from all the nations, kindreds, people, and languages, standing in the throne of God before the Lamb. They were clothed (surrounded in light) in white robes (outer garments extending to the feet, worn as a mark of dignity by kings, priests, and persons of rank), holding palms in their hands (means of or instrument of resurrection power). The word palm here is the Greek word phoenix, representing a palm tree or a date palm. However, a phoenix is also a mythical bird that symbolizes resurrection and immortality. If you look up depictions of the mythical creature, you will see a fiery dragon or bird rising from the ashes of death to the light of life. The significance of this word would have been known by those reading Revelation. They must have understood what Christ was precisely revealing to them and also to us. He is the only resurrection power!
The great multitude described in Revelation 7:4-17 is “they which came out of the great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and make them white in the blood of the Lamb.” All those who endure the pressure, the pressing together, the oppression, affliction, persecution, and tribulation, yet choose to be sealed by the Lord in their foreheads. And their sins are redeemed by the blood of the Lamb slain before the foundation of the earth: the Lord Jesus Christ. They shall serve him day and night, and they shall hunger nor thirst anymore. The Lamb shall be in their midst, shall feed them, and shall lead them to the living waters, and God shall wipe away all their tears.
REVELATION CHAPTER 13
We skip now to Revelation chapter 13 where, in verse seven, the beast is given the power to band together, produce war and strife, and overtake (Greek word nikao: to conquer; root word nike: victory) the saints. The saints, “them that dwell in heaven” (Revelation 13:6), are those consecrated to the Lord and dwell (Greek skenoo) spiritually in Heaven in the tabernacle of God. But, all who dwell (Greek katoikeo) on the earth, whose spirit resides and is governed by the world below (see Revelation 13:8), not sealed by the mark of God, are not written in the Lamb’s book of life. They will worship, that is, bow down and reside in the house of the beast. They will trust in the answers, the solutions, the systems of men forsaking God, His power, and His promises, holding onto anger and unable to find peace. What a spirit bows to is the house where it will reside. They carry the seal, the signet, the meta of the beast.
I am going to now define a few words. Anyone reading this, please carefully consider what I am saying. Apply this knowledge to your lives and the lives of your families. Make sure the foundations are strong and built on the Word.
METOPON: The Greek word means the space between the eyes or forehead. It is from the Greek word meta which means accompaniment, with, after, behind, association, succession, proximity, transfer, sequence.
OCULUS: Eye; a window or some sort of opening in the shape of a circle, sight, vision, eye of the soul, mind’s eye, to see; an opening at the apex of a dome; the central master of a volute. A volute is a spiral or scroll, scroll-shaped carving at the tuning head of a stringed instrument, the casing in a centrifugal pump; spiral curve on neoclassical architecture; of a spring having a curve on its tail; doublet of the word vault.
QUEST: Acquisition, search, hunt, tribute, tax, inquiry, to seek; a journey or effort in pursuit of a goal, a lengthy, ambitious, or fervent goal; a mission; desire, solicitation; a group of people making search or inquiry; inquest. To locate and attach to a host animal like a tick.
PORTAL: An entrance, entry point, means of entry; in architecture, it can be a lesser gate where there are two of different dimensions; a large lavish entrance; a portal on the internet which allows the person to enter other websites, pages, dimensions; a gate; a door like structure usually on the outside of a property or structure; a doorway, gateway.
The enemy has established the systems necessary to complete his ruse. He has found his gateway to enter the secret place. He has called out his workers of iniquity. He’s been given access to the meta, the mind, and spirit of all those who will be influenced by and enticed by his brand new world. He is the force behind the digital scenes. He is on a quest to encamp around those who will follow his empty promises. He is fervent in the hunt and desires the minds of all those he can deceive. He aims to attach to his prey and make them bow to his demands. He has a single vision and hides in plain sight to seduce all those he can to be bound in his vault of false promises. He desires to be the center of attention and the life force pumping out his propaganda in every media access he can find. His means of entry is the forehead, the meta, the mind. His gate is the lesser gate, yet he raised himself in pride to pretend to be the greater gate. His door, his gateway, only leads to the second death. Those who choose him will be sealed with his mark. They’ll be capable of operating in the marketplace, yet there will be nothing there once the wrath of God pursues the iniquity of his ways. I pray now that you understand one aspect of his net after reading this and that you will begin to reflect on which house your foundation is built. Is it built on the solid foundation of the teaching of Christ or on the lies and deceptions presented daily by the forces of evil? Those who stand on the Rock can be encouraged that He will protect and guide them through the Holy Spirit. Yes, the weapons will form, but they will not prosper! Only the Lord gives the increase, not a job, bank account, digital coin, or government. Do not lay up for ourselves treasures upon the earth, where moth and rust corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal; lay your treasures in heaven and be led of the Holy Spirit. He will provide for all our needs! He promised! (see Philippians 4:19)
Let all those who read this article see what I have laid out for full view so that you can be aware that the revelations of Jesus Christ are manifesting before our eyes. Will you receive His instruction and be sealed with the Meta of the Lord, the Spirit of Truth, or be overtaken by influencers of the evil one and be sealed with the meta, the spirit of the Antichrist?
“And Jesus saith unto him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.” Matthew 8:20
Jesus said there was no place in the earth for Him to lay His head (Matthew 8:20; Luke 9:58). If we look at the word lay (Greek klino) in both verses, it means incline or recline, cause to bend, bow down. Jesus, the Spirit of Truth in Him, the personification of the straight path, could not bow down to the ruler of this world, Satan. His mind was set on a higher plain, revering the Spirit of Truth, and therefore ruled by a higher power than Satan. However, the sly and crafty men, the influencers of this world, bow down to their flesh, their eyes, and their pride to possess and enjoy external things and regard them much more than the spiritual things of God. They build a lair, a den, as would a wild animal for protection. Did you know in Australia, the word lair is used informally to define a show-off, a vulgar, arrogant person who dresses distastefully? And the “birds of the air?” They elevate themselves and flee to their high and lofty places for protection.
Being the incarnate Word of God, He could only speak the Truth, but in a way that its meaning would have to be sought out. Those choosing to remain in the world, in the beast system, will not understand yet His followers will; and we will stand. Selah
WORD RECEIVED 1/27/22 AT 7:00 AM
You have overstepped your bounds!!! You have went outside the protective garden to pursue your own desires, NOT MY WILL FOR YOU. Step aside and watch the Glory of My coming. You have provoked My wrath, and I will not hold back the gates of hell upon those who mock me. See me as I return all to My beauty. My heart lies with those who chose Me before the foundation of the earth. You will see MY GLORY. The glory of man will never prevail, for it is a vain glory sparked out of ungodly desires. See My face as you rise above the bounds My Father placed upon you. See His power and might as He brings to a close all that is wicked and returns to His son that which He desires: His bride. Do not talk of wild things and wild days of old; these will be days of shouting glory as the Father intended! Take now no rest for the day approaches where He will have his say.
GOD WILL HAVE HIS VENGEANCE UPON THE SON OF PERDITION
No man comes to the Father but by the saving grace of the Son. See My glory. Refuse to keep your gaze upon the things of old or on the things of man. My righteousness is pure. My ways are true. I will have My bride on My wedding day set by My Father. Seek My face for soon I will gaze upon this world no more, and My wrath shall come upon it. Take only what you need, My Holy Spirit who will guide the way. Seek not to establish your wealth, for it will burn with the fires of hell, for that is its marketplace. I will raise up a wealth greater than all the nations which will sustain My people. Be cautious of those who seek fame and fortune off of the words of My testimony, for their glory is manifested in the earth, not in heaven. I provide for My children and shall never let them fail. Seek My peace, for it is the saving grace in times of need. I am the Hope in the dark, and no other light will sustain. My oil flows down from on high. My Spirit rests on My sheep. And they will hear My voice as I call in the night hour. All will be forgiven, but the wicked refuse My offering. They choose to seek their vain desire for control and, in doing so, set in motion their own destruction. Bring peace to the atmosphere by raising My name above all other things named. My name is higher than any disease or fear, and I will redeem MY BRIDE! Take heart as the events unfold. Hold on to the mast of THE ARK and allow My presence to be the one you seek. Have mercy on those who do you harm, for that is the way of God. He showed them mercy, they refused, and their penalty is set. Bring all the tithe into the storehouse, for there is a harvest to come for all My people! For them and to Me! The day approaches. Prepare for My arrival. The huppah (chuppah see page 8 of the magazine) is built, and the banquet is being prepared. The call to receive My invitation awaits the sons of God to return to the power and might of the Father. I have redeemed them!
