Isaiah 57:1-2 1The righteous perisheth, and no man layeth it to heart: and merciful men are taken away, none considering that the righteous is taken away from the evil to come. 2He shall enter into peace: they shall rest in their beds, each one walking in his uprightness.
Isaiah 3:1-3 For, behold, the Lord, Yahuweh of hosts, doth take away from Jerusalem and from Judah the stay and the staff, the whole stay of bread, and the whole stay of water, 2The mighty man, and the man of war, the judge, and the prophet, and the prudent, and the ancient, 3The captain of fifty, and the honourable man, and the counsellor, and the cunning artificer, and the eloquent orator.
Micah 7:2 The good man is perished out of the earth: and there is none upright among men: they all lie in wait for blood; they hunt every man his brother with a net.
All three of these scriptures are relating to the same time and event.
Malachi 3:16-18 Then they that feared Yahuweh spake often one to another: and Yahuweh hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared Yahuweh, and that thought upon his name. 17And they shall be mine, saith Yahuweh of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. 18Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.
Yahuweh of Hosts is Yahushua (Jesus) in the OldTestament.
Revelation 3:10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
Jesus is making two references one to the Hebrew wedding ceremony from John 14:1-4 and opening and closing of the door of Huppa-protection. This promise was only to the Philadelphia church.
Hebrews 12:14 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:
Revelation 14:14-16 And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle. 15And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe.
Read on to 18 another harvest this time by another angel not the Son of Man. This group was fully ripe.
Why two harvests, six churches that did not heed the warning. Revelation 15:2-4 describes this group, they were tempted with the mark, their hour of temptation which came upon the whole earth; Daniel 7:25 talks about some of the saints exposed to this and loosing their lives to the purification of others.
Father let repentance and the fear of Yahuweh reign in our hearts. We thank you for chastisement which reveals your grace, that divine influence upon our hearts. Halle lu YAHUSHUA
