New Heaven and a New Earth: Why Are They Relevant?

 Revelation 21:1-2, "Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband."

    From what the Scriptures teach you, God's Eternal Order in heaven is permanent. Then what does John mean when he writes about a "new heaven?"

    Psalm 119:89 reads, "Forever, LordYour word stands in heaven."

    If God's word stands firm in heaven forever, how can there be a new heaven? As you know, there are three heavens:

  • Heaven
  • The Stellar Heaven
  • The Atmospheric Heaven

    It stands to reason that God's heaven of heavens will be like Him--never changing!

    Therefore, if there is going to be a "new heaven," then doesn't it seem logical that the new heaven has to do with both the Stellar Heaven and the Atmospheric Heaven. Jesus tells you, "But immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken" (Matthew 24:29).

    Obviously, the Stellar Heaven will be changed. Notice from Revelation 21:1 above, there earth is changed. There is no sea. Since the evaporation of the sea causes the rains to come, then the atmosphere will definitely be changed when there is no sea on earth.

    Just wanted to share a bit to give you something to think about.

Be Blessed,

 The Eternal Word

"Forever, O Lord, your word is settled in Heaven" (Psalm 119:89).

Established on Solid Rock

    God's word binds you to Him. His word is established on solid ground. An eternal heaven; therefore, you can totally trust and rely on God's word.

    Consistent with His nature, God didn't place His word on the floods. The new earth won't contain a sea. His word isn't established on the hills and mountains because they will flee away.

    Nothing on earth is solid enough for God to plant His word on. So, God settles His word on something that lasts forever, heaven.

Eternal Order

    Heaven of creation proclaims God's Eternal Order. You, as a believer, see heaven as the spiritual Mecca. It is the place of your spiritual dreams. Your imagination runs wild trying to picture the place Jesus made available to His followers.

    You know and experience moral laws and redemption because of an eternal heaven: God's home, His throne and His temple. Heaven becomes a place where the large and the small can share a common goal together.

    Since God's word has been established on such a stable foundation, you accept that His word can provide infinite provisions. His word has given you a marvelous plan.

His Word Came to Earth

    Over two thousand years ago, God's Word came and dwelt among His people. Jesus the Christ is administrator of God's word for all mankind.

    Because of who the Word is, when one sins, he is direct violation of God's word. Sin is directly opposed to God's word. Sin is diabolically opposed to God's Eternal Order.

    However, Jesus' sacrifice took your sin and cast it into the middle of God's great big nowhere. Christ gave the world salvation that allowed you to become a part of God's Eternal Order where you live eternally with Him.

    Because His word is established forever in heaven, it makes faith grow. "Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God" (Romans 10:17).

    Therefore, today, allow God's word to be settled in you. Begin to live and walk in His Eternal Order. Not only will His word be established forever, but you will, too! Take hold of God's eternal word today. Be settled in heaven as well as His word.



Blessings,



Howard

How Does The Tribulation Begin?

    As the Tribulation begins, Jesus opens the seals that are wrapped around the scroll. The scroll is the title deed to the earth. When he opens the first seal, a rider on a white horse rides out to conquer. He has a bow, but there are no arrows for the bow. Therefore, he will conquer countries in conventional warfare and in unconventional ways as well.

    Many theologians today believe he will wage war using economic measures. The following verses would so indicate. Yes, it is true that inflation follows in the path of war. Things do get higher; however, look at how much inflation rises when the Tribulation begins.

Inflation

   In Revelation 6;5-6 we read, When the Lamb opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come!” I looked, and there before me was a black horse! Its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand.  Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, “Two pounds of wheat for a day’s wages,[b] and six pounds of barley for a day’s wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!”

    Inflation really takes a huge leap when the third seal is broken. Look at the price of a loaf of bread, a day's wages. Today, the minimum wage is $7.50 per hour--twice this in California. At $7.50 per hour, a loaf of bread will cost $30.00 (one pound of flour). The cost of a loaf of bread today is about $2.54. Ten years ago it was $1.06. Inflation has eaten away at our pocketbooks. However, inflation will take the prices much higher within the next few years.

    However, prices are begining to skyrocket especially meat. If the trend continues, inflation may be a springboard for the antichrist to begin his run on history. He will be able to conquer the world. The whole world will be ruled by a monarch for nearly seven (7) years.

    Inflation can cause a majority of the people of the world to go hungry. People will have to choose wheither to buy medicines that they must have or food which is imperative that they have. Inflation will cause a huge separation in the social classes. There will be little middle class left. Most of the middle and lower classes will merge into the lower class. The upper class will continue to grow wealthy if they can stay alive.

War

    When the second seal was broken, people began to kill one another. The rider on the "red horse" rode out to make war. He took peace from the earth. This rider carried a large sword.

    Then, as the fourth seal is broken, things really heat up on earth. The rider on the "pale" horse causes one-fourth of the earth's population to be destroyed. There are 7.9 billion people on the earth today, December, 2021. One-fourth of 7.9 billion would be nearly 2 billion people. What could kill 2 billion people quickly?

    The word "pale" is actually chlorous in Greek. The horse is green; however, most translations render it pale or ashen because no one has seen a green horse running about the pastures. We get our English word chlorine from the above word.

    Chlorine gas explains how 2 billion people can be anhilated quickly. Chlorine is a deadly gas. Placed in a water supply or dropped by bombs onto densly populated areas could indeed cause massive deaths among the earth's population.

    Yes, the Tribulation Period will cause much suffering. However, we are warned ahead of time. We can do something to prevent our joining in the suffering. Accept Jesus as Lord and Savior. Become a part of His church. His church will be taken out before the Tribulation Period begins.


Blessings,



Howard

Marry a Prostitute: Never

 

Hoshea

Minor Prophets Study

By

B Howard Coffey

 

As you read the book of Hoshea, remember that the book is a passionate letter. The passion of a husband who has lost his wife comes to life in the pages of the book. It is passionate because of God’s relationship to Israel. He loves her, but she has gone after other gods. C.F. Ezekiel 16; Jeremiah 3:6-8. And The passion also includes the passion of a father to his children Hoshea 11:1-3; Jeremiah 31:20. Because it is a passionate discourse, there is much repetition but not without purpose.


Hosea Chapter 1

 

In 733 B.C. Tiglath-pileser, King of Assyria, came against the Northern Kingdom and took all but Ephraim and Manasseh. Do you remember whose sons these two were? That’s right, Joseph’s. Could that have a bearing on their remaining undefeated? Let’s look at the blessing that Jacob pronounced on Joseph (Genesis 49:22-26).

Yes, who they were could have had much to do with the fact that they held out eleven years after their brothers were gone into exile and death. Assyria took both tribes captive in 722 B.C. Therefore, Ephraim refers to what remains for the last ten years. Other places in the Bible, Ephraim refers to the tribes that separated from Judah (Jeremiah 7:15; 31:9 C.F.).

In the first three chapters, God reveals himself to Hosea through signs and types. Hebrews 1 instructs you, “God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world,” (verses 1-2). The after the first three chapters, God speaks to Hosea through dialog.

God is distraught with his chosen people. They have desired other gods or wives. Remember, God married Israel at Mount Sinai, Deut. 19-20. Now they have become unfaithful. Hosea’s marriage to a prostitute becomes a sign of the infidelity of Israel. Through the names of Hosea’s sons, God foretells the abandonment of His sons, Israel, Hosea 1:2-3:2; 1:4-6, 8, 9. 3.

 

Pg 7 Hosea Chapter 1

Through Hosea, God speaks softly to Judah who still has a true form of worship of God. Throughout the book we see God’s pure and precious promises of mercy mixed with portions of God’s wrath.

Hosea’s Wife and Children

 

V 1 The word of the Lord which came to Hosea the son of Beeri, during the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah, kings of Judah, and during the days of Jeroboam the son of Joash, king of Israel.

The timeline for Hosea is identified by the times of the kings. Hosea prophesied around 793-686 BC. If you recall, Isaiah prophesied during the reigns of these kings, too. Isaiah received his call from God the year that Uzziah died, B.C. 739

V 2 When the Lord first spoke through Hosea, the Lord said to Hosea, “Go, take to yourself a wife of harlotry and have children of harlotry; for the land commits flagrant harlotry, forsaking the Lord.

God tells Hosea to choose a prostitute for his wife. Nothing new in our society. A popular movie, Pretty Woman, has the same theme.

I’m confident that Hosea’s mom and dad were proud of him. They may not have allowed him to bring she and her children to visit.

God’s intentions were to show Israel how they were acting towards him. They had chosen to play the harlot by worshiping other gods. God was their husband. He married them at Mount Sinai, Exodus 19-20. They were commanded not to have other Gods (Exodus 20:3; Deuteronomy 6:14). They knew God was a jealous God

(Exodus 20:5; Deuteronomy 4:24). He told them that he was. Yet, they, as Hosea’s choice of wife showed, had decided to love other gods.

V 3 So he went and took Gomer the daughter of Diblaim, and she conceived and bore him a son.

As with the prophet Isaiah, God uses the names of Hosea’s children to signify important historical events.

V 4 And the Lord said to him, “Name him Jezreel; for yet a little while, and I will punish the house of Jehu for the bloodshed of Jezreel, and I will put an end to the kingdom of the house of Israel.

Jezreel was the first son if Hosea. In talking about the “bloodshed” of Jezreel. Many think the reference to bloodshed of Jezreel is to the destruction of the house of Ahab and Ahaziah when Jehu overtook the throne. However, this seems highly unlikely. The kingdom didn’t end with Jehu’s death. Israel would survive for 30 more years.  Also, God commanded Jehu to destroy Ahab’s dynasty. (1 Kings 9:1-10, 10:30. C.F. 2 Chronicles 22:7). Why would God punish someone for carrying out his word? God commanded Jehu.

Maybe you can consider the bloodshed of Jezreel as the “bloodshed of the house of Israel.” It is good to recall that Ahab introduced Baalism as the national worship of Israel (1 Kings 21). Ahab also plotted the murder of Naboth in order to get his vineyard. From this point forward in Hosea, the confrontation between Baal and Israel is set.

V 5 On that day I will break the bow of Israel in the valley of Jezreel.

It was here that Baalism seemed to have triumphed over the Lord. It is here in the valley of Jezreel (another name for Israel) that Baalism will be defeated. To “break the bow” indicated complete defeat of an enemy.

There are two incidents of Baal being defeated. The first is in 1 Kings 18 where Elijah confronts them. The second happens when Jehu had all the worshipers of Baal assemble in their temple. He did this in a cunning fashion. After all were gathered in, he had them all killed (2 Kings 10). The Bible says that Jehu had Baal “eradicated (2 Kings 10:28).

V 6 Then she conceived again and gave birth to a daughter. And the Lord said to him, “Name her Lo-ruhamah, for I will no longer have compassion on the house of Israel, that I would ever forgive them.

Note that the daughter is not referred to as Hosea’s child. Later she will be called “children of harlotry.” Nonetheless, the child was an indication of the Lord’s intentions regarding Israel. He no longer has compassion on them.

Notice, too, that the daughter not being listed as Hoshea’s could be an indicator that Israel was no longer considered a daughter or part of the family of God’s.

V 7 But I will have compassion on the house of Judah and deliver them by the Lord their God, and will not deliver them by bow, sword, battle, horses or horsemen.

God’s devotion has switched from Israel. Before he had compassion on Israel, but now he has compassion on Judah only. I would point out that God isn’t too happy with Judah. She runs after other gods, and she burns incense to other gods on the high places.

As for Israel, God will not deliver them through their trained army. Their weapons of war will not prevail against the enemy. No matter how well equipped their army might be, their efforts will be           thwarted by God.

V 8 When she had weaned Lo-ruhamah, she conceived and gave birth to a son.

Following the birth of her daughter, Hoshea’s wife gives birth to a son. Note the Bible does not indicate if the son belongs to Hoshea, either.

This could also be the place that women learned that they couldn’t get pregnant while nursing a child. Hoshea’s wife didn’t become pregnant again until after her daughter is weaned. The fact is that nursing a child doesn’t always prevent pregnancy. However, if you look at the time of births for women who don’t use birth control, the children are spaced nearly two-years apart—the time to wean a child.

V 9 And the Lord said, “Name him Lo-ammi, for you are not My people and I am not your God.

The child shows how much God has turned away from Israel. No longer does he claim them as his people. Look, too, the people don’t claim him as their God. Yes, they still profess God as their leader; however, their behavior does not indicate his presence in their lives.

Could be something to look at in your life and the life of your church—profession doesn’t compute to following Jesus.

V 10 Yet the number of the sons of Israel will be like the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured or numbered; and in the place where it is said to them, “You are not My people,” It will be said to them, “You are the sons of the living God.

“You are the sons of the living God” is also quoted by Paul in Romans 9:26. As to the increase in the number of peoples in Israel, the time surely cannot be now. God is about to destroy the majority of Israel’s people by war with the Assyrians. Their numbers will decrease rather than increase.

Obviously, verse ten refers to a later time. Isaiah writes, “Enlarge the place of your tent;
[a]Stretch out the curtains of your dwellings, spare not; lengthen your cords and strengthen your pegs.” (54:2).

Again a scripture that indicates the increase of the people of God’s chosen.

Isaiah writes about a time during the Millennial reign of Christ when Israel and Judah have joined together as country. At this time the peoples will increase so much that larger tents will be needed to make room for the increase in children.

V 11 And the sons of Judah and the sons of Israel will be gathered together, and they will appoint for themselves one leader, and they will go up from the land, for great will be the day of Jezreel.

Jezreel means, God will sow. The reference is to the valley that lies southwest of the city of Jezreel. One end of this valley is the valley of Megiddo. This will be the final battle between the disobedient peoples of the earth and Christ and his saints. The battle will take place at the end of the tribulation period. The battle will usher in the Millennial reign of Christ. The fact, that his 1,000 year reign begins following the battle, remains a good indicator of who wins the battle.

Jezreel is know as the city where Jezebel died. You remember her. She was Ahab’s wife. She ushered in the worship of Baal. She swore to kill Elijah. And she had Naboth killed so her husband, Ahab, could acquire Naboth’s vineyard.

Ironically, her name in Hebrew means chaste.

Religious Opinion Can Be Wrong

 

Matthew 16:1-4.

Doesn't it seem that everywhere Jesus goes, members of the Sanhedrin, Pharisees and Sadducees, seem to find him. These groups of religious fanatics constantly badger him. As is the case in our scripture above.

Jesus had just prior to this fed 4,000 people with seven loaves and a few small fish. His miracle took place out of necessity. The crowd had been following him for three days (16:32, and he had been healing their infirmities (15:30-31). So, Jesus asked His disciples, ". . .I don't want to send them away hungry," (15:32).

Well, the disciples panicked, "No way can we feed all these people. We can't do that! Where would we get enough bread to feed this many people."

Jesus simply asked them to take inventory of the food supply that they had. I think He often asks you and me, "How much power is in your tank. Are you below empty. Remember, I can fill your tank with all the power you need."

Right after this event, they continue to travel along the Sea of Galilee. It is at some point in their travel that the members of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to Jesus to test him (16:1). They were brazen enough to ask Jesus to show them a sign from heaven. Jesus had been healing the blind, the lame and other maladies that people can acquire in the previous chapter. These religious leaders had to know about all these signs. Then, it begs the question, Where did they think all these signs came from?

In chapter 12 of Matthew's gospel, the religious leaders accuse Jesus of doing signs by Beelzebub. So, it may be safe to assume, that these leaders facing Jesus today to test him, were saying that His signs came from hell. "We want you to show us a sign from heaven," they tell Jesus.

As was His usual repertoire, Jesus turns their question on them. He gives them signs that they know. If the sky is red at sunset, then there will be good weather tomorrow. It the sky is red at sunrise, then there could be storms (vv 2-3).

Jesus tells these pompous leaders, "You know how to predict the weather, but you have no idea the times that you are seeing before your eyes. I'm about to do something that will change mankind forever. You can know about it because you are learned in the ways of God, but you don't know how to discern the facts of God's plans" (v 3b paraphrased).

Next, Jesus tells them the only sign they will get from Him is the sign of Jonah. That was a sign from heaven that they would understand. Jonah spent three days and nights in the belly of a fish. These leaders would know this account from their Torah. However, they would be unable to grasp the significance of the words as they related to Jesus. Jesus would spend three days and three nights in the belly of the earth. He, too, would come out alive. Not only would he be alive, but He would provide life to every man on earth who would come to Him in faith believing that He was the Lord of all.

Matthew 16:13-20.

Finally, Jesus and his followers come to Caesarea Philippi at the northeast end of the Sea of Galilee. Jesus asks a question of his disciples, "Who do people say that the Son of Man is?" (v 13b).

His followers began to answer, "Some say John the Baptist; and others Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets" (v 14).

Then, Jesus does with them as He does with you and me. He gets really personal and asks, "But who do yourselves say that I am?" (v. 15).

We, who have been baptized, know the answer to this question. We were asked to repeat these words before the minister baptized us. Peter answers and says, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God" (v. 16).

Jesus then tells Peter, the rest of His followers and us that Peter's answer is spirit breathed. This confession cannot come from man, it can only come from the Holy Spirit.

Jesus uses Peter's confession to make a huge declaration. He tells Peter, "That you are Peter (little rock), and upon this rock (huge, mountainous size rock) I will build My church; and the gates of Hades will not overpower it" (v. 18. Words in parenthesis are the authors).

As the influence of the church declines more and more every day, it appears that Satan is winning. The gates of Hell are wreaking havoc on our churches. However, God is always in control. Paul says, "For when I am weak, I am strong" (2 Corinthians 12:10b).

Satan wants you to believe the church is shrinking and growing weaker. However, you need to begin to confess, "My church is mighty for battle. It will overcome the enemy. My church will have powerful influence in my community." Then, began acting as though the words are true. Faith comes from hearing the word. Repeat this confession to yourself every day.

No, the religious leaders of Jesus' day couldn't relinquish Him of His power. Neither can the ones today destroy your church. Keep the faith because revival is coming. I believe this! Will you agree with me in prayer?

Work Together With Him: Servants of the Most High

 

In writing to the church at Corinth, Paul asks them to conform to the standards that Jesus. set, And working together with Him, we also urge you not to receive the grace of God in vain—for He says,

At the acceptable time I listened to you,
And on the day of salvation I helped you.”

Behold, now is “the acceptable time,” behold, now is “the day of salvation”—giving no cause for offense in anything, so that the ministry will not be discredited, but in everything commending ourselves as servants of God, (2 Corinthians 6:1-4).

As An Ambassador

In verse 20 of chapter 5, Paul tells the church that they are ambassadors for Christ. Today's ambassadors represent their countries in a manner that brings confidence, assurance and good will to that country. The modern ambassadors conduct themselves astutely. They never want to present a bad image because who they are reflects on the country they serve.

If then you are an ambassador for Christ, you should do everything in your power to represent God's Kingdom in a manner that would cause others to want to belong to your country. You want everyone to see that you serve the Kingdom well. Those around should know what Kingdom you represent.

Working Together

Because you are an Ambassador as Paul, you work together with Jesus. You work in a manner that proves the grace given you isn't in vain. It is grace that saves you, but then God's grace then, gives you the power and desire to do the work of the Holy Spirit. By allowing the Holy Spirit to work through your giftedness and personality while you rest assures that you aren't using your grace in vain.

Paul and his ministry team suffered many hardships. It is possible that you will as well. Those of us in America may not suffer any of the hardships that Paul went through (vv 4-5). However, even if you do suffer persecution, if you remain pure, the knowledge of God will create in you patience, kindness, genuine love through the Holy Spirit. All this is brought about by the word of truth. through the power of God.

Then Paul encourages you to use the weapons of righteousness. Notice that the weapon of righteousness fits you if you are right handed or left handed. It doesn't require you to special order the weapon of righteousness. It fits right out of the box. Paul also writes in 2 Corinthians 5:21, He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

Therefore, your weapons of righteousness is given to you by God through Jesus. He took all of our sin and made us as righteous as God.

Do Not Be Yoked to Unbelievers

Paul finishes his advice to the church at Corinth and to you and me by teaching that we are not to become partners with unbelievers. If you are a believer about to get married to an unbeliever, stop! Tell your significant other that you will not marry him/her until a confession in Christ is made.

Getting ready to form a business partnership with another? Before you sign the papers, make sure the other is a believer; otherwise, your business may look like a worldly business. So keep yourself from being bound in any fashion to an unbeliever.

Paul is not saying "don't associate with an unbeliever." How else could your ever preach the word to them. Paul writes in Colossians 2:20, If you have died with Christ to the elementary principles of the world, why, as if you were living in the world, do you submit yourself to decrees, such as.

If you have died with Christ, you are not subject to the decrees of the world that causes you to submit yourself to the elemental teachings of the world. In other words never allow anyone to "should" on you. You've been changed from these man-made laws.

Paul quotes Isaiah as emphasis to avoid the things of the world. Isaiah says, Therefore, come out from their midst and be separate, says the Lord.

2nd Post: Are We Close to End Times--Check This Out

 From our last post about the question, "Are we close to end times?", we identified the church era as the beginning of end times. Next, the end times will have a seven year time of tribulation. That period hasn't begun. However, we are beginning to see signs of this time being near.

In this post we will examine further signs of the nearness of this second end times process. So let's begin.


   2. The Tribulation Period into Christ's 1000 year reign.

There are some signs that are beginning to show how near the end times of the tribulation period is.
  • Earthquakes
  • Famines
  • Love Grows Cold
