Ruling With Christ

How are we to Reign with Christ in his millennial Kingdom? We are still called to serve others, but we are also called to rule.

NLT Rev 2:27 They will rule the nations with an iron rod and smash them like clay pots. 28 They will have the same authority I received from my Father, and I will also give them the morning star! 29 “Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches.

Jesus has given us the same authority that he had when he walked the earth. We are to rule over the nations with iron rods. The rod is the shepherds tool to fend off predators of the sheep. So who are the clay pots. Aren’t these the people who say that their potter can not see, that he does not understand?

LB Is 29:13-16

13. And so the Lord says, “Since these people say they are mine but they do not obey me, and since their worship amounts to mere words learned by rote,

14. therefore I will take awesome vengeance on these hypocrites, and make their wisest counselors as fools.”

15. Woe to those who try to hide their plans from God, who try to keep him in the dark concerning what they do! “God can’t see us,” they say to themselves. “He doesn’t know what is going on!”

16. How stupid can they be! Isn’t he, the Potter, greater than you, the jars he makes? Will you say to him, “He didn’t make us”? Does a machine call its inventor dumb?

Didn’t Jesus come to remove the false established Priest class of his day. Perhaps we are given the same purpose, to remove the false established Priest class of our day??

NLT Rev 12:5 She gave birth to a son who was to rule all nations with an iron rod. And her child was snatched away from the dragon and was caught up to God and to his throne.

Those who God includes in his inheritance are snatched away from the dragon and transported to God’s throne, to Jesus’ millennial reign. They are to rule ‘all nations’ with their Shepherds clubs. Lets look at the passage where Jesus clears the temple.

Jesus Clears the Temple

Mark 11:15-20

15 When they arrived back in Jerusalem, Jesus entered the Temple and began to drive out the people buying and selling animals for sacrifices. He knocked over the tables of the money changers and the chairs of those selling doves, 16 and he stopped everyone from using the Temple as a marketplace. 17 He said to them, “The Scriptures declare, ‘My Temple will be called a house of prayer for all nations,’ but you have turned it into a den of thieves.” 18 When the leading priests and teachers of religious law heard what Jesus had done, they began planning how to kill him. But they were afraid of him because the people were so amazed at his teaching. 19 That evening Jesus and the disciples left the city. 20 The next morning as they passed by the fig tree he had cursed, the disciples noticed it had withered from the roots up. 21 Peter remembered what Jesus had said to the tree on the previous day and exclaimed, “Look, Rabbi! The fig tree you cursed has withered and died!”

Men have again made their worship gathering places into dens of thieves.  The primary purpose of worship gathering places has not been ‘houses of prayer’ for a very long time. These places have been about the business of religion for a very long time.   Men have been collecting followers, building their empires, controlling the 99 sheep while they totally ignore the lost sheep.  These men refuse to wash the feet of their followers, accepting the humble servant role.  No they presume to lord over their flocks!

The next key is the Drying up the Euphrates river, the river that feeds the city of Babylon.  That led me to this passage.

Jeremiah’s Message Sent to Babylon

NLT Jer 51:59 The prophet Jeremiah gave this message to Seraiah son of Neriah and grandson of Mahseiah, a staff officer, when Seraiah went to Babylon with King Zedekiah of Judah. This was during the fourth year of Zedekiah’s reign. 60 Jeremiah had recorded on a scroll all the terrible disasters that would soon come upon Babylon―all the words written here. 61 He said to Seraiah, “When you get to Babylon, read aloud everything on this scroll. 62 Then say, ‘LORD, you have said that you will destroy Babylon so that neither people nor animals will remain here. She will lie empty and abandoned forever.’ 63 When you have finished reading the scroll, tie it to a stone and throw it into the Euphrates River. 64 Then say, ‘In this same way Babylon and her people will sink, never again to rise, because of the disasters I will bring upon her.’ ” This is the end of Jeremiah’s messages.

So Babylon, the harlot church, does not really sink until we fulfill our role, reading the book of Jeremiah to them and then relating it to the story and life of Jesus. The Euphrates river is the river that feeds Babylon, the supply chain to the Harlot church. This river signifies the multitudes of deceived people who feed their Harlot churches. Once these multitudes understand their leaders are working against God, they will  turn away, and Babylon will become deserted!

Dear God,

Please show us how we are to rule with you. to trample on these serpents and scorpions, to seek only your will and your glory. In Jesus Mighty Name We Pray, Amen.

Iron rod passages:

NLT PS 2:6 For the Lord declares, “I have placed my chosen king on the throne in Jerusalem, on my holy mountain.” 7 The king proclaims the LORD’s decree: “The LORD said to me, ‘You are my son. Today I have become your Father. 8 Only ask, and I will give you the nations as your inheritance, the whole earth as your possession. 9 You will break them with an iron rod and smash them like clay pots.’ ” 10 Now then, you kings, act wisely! Be warned, you rulers of the earth! 11 Serve the LORD with reverent fear, and rejoice with trembling. 12 Submit to God’s royal son, or he will become angry, and you will be destroyed in the midst of all your activities― for his anger flares up in an instant. But what joy for all who take refuge in him!

The sons of the Lord are given the nations as their inheritance breaking them with an iron rod[shepherd’s club], smashing them like clay pots. The rulers of the earth [true Christ seekers] are then warned to act wisely serving the Lord with reverent fear, rejoicing with trembling submitting to Jesus or they will be destroyed in the midst of their activity!! The literal translations say lest they perish from the way or lose their way.

So if we, after finding the way of truth stop reverently fearing the Lord, rejoicing with trembling, and submitting to Jesus the we, the rulers of the earth, have lost our way and will be destroyed in the midst of our activity. This does not say we will be removed from the earth, but we will be disqualified!

Isn’t this next passage telling the sons of God that they are to smash these rulers who have lost their way and have been disqualified?

NLT Rev 2:27 They will rule the nations with an iron rod and smash them like clay pots. 28 They will have the same authority I received from my Father, and I will also give them the morning star! 29 “Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches.

Jesus has given us the same authority that he had when he walked the earth. We are to rule over the nations with our iron rods. The rod is the shepherds tool to fend off predators of the sheep. I wonder the significance of the clay pots. Are these the clay pots the pots who say that their potter does not understand?

LB Is 29:13-16

13. And so the Lord says, “Since these people say they are mine but they do not obey me, and since their worship amounts to mere words learned by rote,

14. therefore I will take awesome vengeance on these hypocrites, and make their wisest counselors as fools.”

15. Woe to those who try to hide their plans from God, who try to keep him in the dark concerning what they do! “God can’t see us,” they say to themselves. “He doesn’t know what is going on!”

NLT Rev 12:5 She gave birth to a son who was to rule all nations with an iron rod. And her child was snatched away from the dragon and was caught up to God and to his throne.

Those who God includes in his inheritance are snatched away from the dragon and transported to God’s throne, to Jesus’ millennial reign. They are to rule ‘all nations’ with their Shepherds clubs.

The Rider on the White Horse

NLT Rev 19:11 Then I saw heaven opened, and a white horse was standing there. Its rider was named Faithful and True, for he judges fairly and wages a righteous war. 12 His eyes were like flames of fire, and on his head were many crowns. A name was written on him that no one understood except himself. 13 He wore a robe dipped in blood, and his title was the Word of God. 14 The armies of heaven, dressed in the finest of pure white linen, followed him on white horses. 15 From his mouth came a sharp sword to strike down the nations. He will rule them with an iron rod.[aren’t we Jesus iron rod] He will release the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty, like juice flowing from a winepress. 16 On his robe at his thigh was written this title: King of all kings and Lord of all lords. 17 Then I saw an angel standing in the sun, shouting to the vultures flying high in the sky: “Come! Gather together for the great banquet God has prepared. 18 Come and eat the flesh of kings, generals, and strong warriors; of horses and their riders; and of all humanity, both free and slave, small and great.” 19 Then I saw the beast and the kings of the world and their armies gathered together to fight against the one sitting on the horse and his army. 20 And the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who did mighty miracles on behalf of the beast―miracles that deceived all who had accepted the mark of the beast and who worshiped his statue. Both the beast and his false prophet were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur. 21 Their entire army was killed by the sharp sword that came from the mouth of the one riding the white horse. And the vultures all gorged themselves on the dead bodies.

What is the morning star in Rev 2:28? This passage promises that we will receive the same authority that God gave Jesus and receive “The Morning Star”. In Rev 22:16 Jesus declares “I am the Morning Star”!

AMP Rev 22:14Blessed (happy and to be envied) are those who cleanse their garments, that they may have the authority and right to [approach] the tree of life and to enter through the gates into the city.

15[But] without are the dogs and those who practice sorceries (magic arts) and impurity [the lewd, adulterers] and the murderers and idolaters and everyone who loves and deals in falsehood (untruth, error, deception, cheating).

16I, Jesus, have sent My messenger (angel) to you to witness and to give you assurance of these things for the churches (assemblies). I am the Root (the Source) and the Offspring of David, the radiant and brilliant Morning Star.

17The [Holy] Spirit and the bride (the church, the true Christians) say, Come! And let him who is listening say, Come! And let everyone come who is thirsty [who is painfully conscious of his need of those things by which the soul is refreshed, supported, and strengthened]; and whoever [earnestly] desires to do it, let him come, take, appropriate, and drink the water of Life without cost.

18I [personally solemnly] warn everyone who listens to the statements of the prophecy [the predictions and the consolations and admonitions pertaining to them] in this book: If anyone shall add anything to them, God will add and lay upon him the plagues (the afflictions and the calamities) that are recorded and described in this book.

Trample passages;

NLT Ps 36:9 For you are the fountain of life, the light by which we see. 10 Pour out your unfailing love on those who love you; give justice to those with honest hearts. 11 Don’t let the proud trample me or the wicked push me around. 12 Look! Those who do evil have fallen! They are thrown down, never to rise again.

NLT Ps 44:4 You are my King and my God. You command victories for Israel. 5 Only by your power can we push back our enemies; only in your name can we trample our foes. 6 I do not trust in my bow; I do not count on my sword to save me. 7 You are the one who gives us victory over our enemies; you disgrace those who hate us. 8 O God, we give glory to you all day long and constantly praise your name.

NLT Ps 60:10 Have you rejected us, O God? Will you no longer march with our armies? 11 Oh, please help us against our enemies, for all human help is useless. 12 With God’s help we will do mighty things, for he will trample down our foes.

NLT Ps 91:9 If you make the LORD your refuge, if you make the Most High your shelter, 10 no evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your home. 11 For he will order his angels to protect you wherever you go. 12 They will hold you up with their hands so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone. 13 You will trample upon lions[violent self assertive beasts] and cobras[those who hiss – priests and teachers]; you will crush fierce lions and serpents[evil self ambitious priests or teachers] under your feet! 14 The LORD says, “I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name. 15 When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honor them. 16 I will reward them with a long life and give them my salvation.”

A Song about the Lord’s Vineyard

NLT Is 5:1-7

1 Now I will sing for the one I love

a song about his vineyard:

My beloved had a vineyard

on a rich and fertile hill.

2 He plowed the land, cleared its stones,

and planted it with the best vines.

In the middle he built a watchtower

and carved a winepress in the nearby rocks.

Then he waited for a harvest of sweet grapes,

but the grapes that grew were bitter .

3 Now, you people of Jerusalem[new Jerusalem true church-divine government-church government?] and Judah[God’s bow[those with the true gospel?], Moab, God’s flock],

you judge between me and my vineyard.

4 What more could I have done for my vineyard

that I have not already done?

When I expected sweet grapes,

why did my vineyard give me bitter grapes?

5 Now let me tell you

what I will do to my vineyard:

I will tear down its hedges[Are You In Christ’s Sheepfold?]

and let it be destroyed.

I will break down its walls

and let the animals trample it [let it be eaten up].

6 I will make it a wild place

where the vines are not pruned and the ground is not hoed,

a place overgrown with briers and thorns.

I will command the clouds

to drop no rain on it.

7 The nation of Israel[contenders with God – professed people of God, 12 tribes, God’s arrow-those who testify to Jesus] is the vineyard of the Lord of Heaven’s Armies.

The people of Judah[God’s bow[those with the true gospel?], Moab, God’s flock] are his pleasant garden.

He expected a crop of justice,

but instead he found oppression.

He expected to find righteousness,

but instead he heard cries of violence.

The bitter grapes that came out of the church system were not righteous. God has done his part, but the shepherds have not done theirs. They invited devil doctrines. They refused to turn from evil and sin so God churns them in the wine press of churchiosity. Then he tore down the hedge around the sheepfold [the volunteer priesthood Are You In Christ’s Sheepfold?] and he allows the sheep to be destroyed ‘letting animals trample it. The animals that the Lord refers to here are the wolves and the leopard preachers.

NLT Is 14:A Message about Assyria[the proud cities – the proud churches]

24 The Lord of Heaven’s Armies has sworn this oath:

It will all happen as I have planned.

It will be as I have decided.

25 I will break the Assyrians[the proud cities – the proud churches] when they are in Israel[contenders with God – professed people of God, 12 tribes, God’s arrow-those who testify to Jesus];

I will trample them on my mountains.

My people will no longer be their slaves

nor bow down under their heavy loads.

26 I have a plan for the whole earth,

a hand of judgment upon all the nations.

27 The Lord of Heaven’s Armies has spoken―

who can change his plans?

When his hand is raised,

who can stop him?”

NLT Is 26:16 Lord, in distress we searched for you.

We prayed beneath the burden of your discipline.

17 Just as a pregnant woman

writhes and cries out in pain as she gives birth,

so were we in your presence, Lord.

18 We, too, writhe in agony,

but nothing comes of our suffering.

We have not given salvation to the earth,

nor brought life into the world.

19 But those who die in the Lord will live;

their bodies will rise again!

Those who sleep in the earth

will rise up and sing for joy!

For your life-giving light will fall like dew

on your people in the place of the dead!

This passage describes what happens to the people who believed in Christ, but were not able to live in Christ! They sleep in the earth for a while but then they rise up when Jesus life giving light falls on them.

A Message about Samaria

NLT Is 28:1 What sorrow awaits the proud city of Samaria―

the glorious crown of the drunks of Israel[contenders with God – professed people of God, 12 tribes, God’s arrow-those who testify to Jesus].

It sits at the head of a fertile valley,

but its glorious beauty will fade like a flower.

It is the pride of a people

brought down by wine.

2 For the Lord will send a mighty army against it.

Like a mighty hailstorm and a torrential rain,

they will burst upon it like a surging flood

and smash it to the ground.

3 The proud city of Samaria―

the glorious crown of the drunks of Israel[contenders with God – professed people of God, 12 tribes, God’s arrow-those who testify to Jesus]―

will be trampled beneath its enemies’ feet.

4 It sits at the head of a fertile valley,

but its glorious beauty will fade like a flower.

Whoever sees it will snatch it up,

as an early fig is quickly picked and eaten. ….

8 Their tables are covered with vomit;

filth is everywhere.

9 “Who does the Lord think we are?” they ask.

Why does he speak to us like this?

Are we little children,

just recently weaned?

10 He tells us everything over and over―

one line at a time,

one line at a time,

a little here,

and a little there!”

11 So now God will have to speak to his people

through foreign oppressors who speak a strange language!

12 God has told his people,

Here is a place of rest;

let the weary rest here.

This is a place of quiet rest.”

But they would not listen.

13 So the Lord will spell out his message for them again,

one line at a time,

one line at a time,

a little here,

and a little there,

so that they will stumble and fall.

They will be injured, trapped, and captured.

14 Therefore, listen to this message from the Lord,

you scoffing rulers in Jerusalem[new Jerusalem true church-divine government-church government?].

15 You boast, “We have struck a bargain to cheat death

and have made a deal to dodge the grave.

The coming destruction can never touch us,

for we have built a strong refuge made of lies and deception.”

16 Therefore, this is what the Sovereign Lord says:

Look! I am placing a foundation stone in Jerusalem[new Jerusalem true church-divine government-church government?],

a firm and tested stone.

It is a precious cornerstone that is safe to build on.

Whoever believes need never be shaken.

17 I will test you with the measuring line of justice

and the plumb line of righteousness.

Since your refuge is made of lies,

a hailstorm will knock it down.

Since it is made of deception,

a flood will sweep it away.

18 I will cancel the bargain you made to cheat death,

and I will overturn your deal to dodge the grave.

When the terrible enemy sweeps through,

you will be trampled into the ground.

19 Again and again that flood will come,

morning after morning,

day and night,

until you are carried away.”

This message will bring terror to your people.

20 The bed you have made is too short to lie on.

The blankets are too narrow to cover you.

21 The Lord will come as he did against the Philistines at Mount Perazim

and against the Amorites at Gibeon.

He will come to do a strange thing;

he will come to do an unusual deed:

22 For the Lord, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies,

has plainly said that he is determined to crush the whole land.

So scoff no more,

or your punishment will be even greater.

NLT Is 37: 23 “Whom have you been defying and ridiculing?

Against whom did you raise your voice?

At whom did you look with such haughty eyes?

It was the Holy One of Israel[contenders with God – professed people of God, 12 tribes, God’s arrow-those who testify to Jesus]!

24 By your messengers you have defied the Lord.

You have said, ‘With my many chariots

I have conquered the highest mountains―

yes, the remotest peaks of Lebanon.

I have cut down its tallest cedars

and its finest cypress trees.

I have reached its farthest heights

and explored its deepest forests.

25 I have dug wells in many foreign lands

and refreshed myself with their water.

With the sole of my foot,

I stopped up all the rivers of Egypt!’

26 “But have you not heard?

I decided this long ago.

Long ago I planned it,

and now I am making it happen.

I planned for you to crush fortified cities

into heaps of rubble.

27 That is why their people have so little power

and are so frightened and confused.

They are as weak as grass,

as easily trampled as tender green shoots.

They are like grass sprouting on a housetop,

scorched before it can grow lush and tall.

28 “But I know you well―

where you stay

and when you come and go.

I know the way you have raged against me.

29 And because of your raging against me

and your arrogance, which I have heard for myself,

I will put my hook in your nose

and my bit in your mouth.

I will make you return

by the same road on which you came.”

NLT Is 41:21 “Present the case for your idols,”

says the Lord.

Let them show what they can do,”

says the King of Israel[contenders with God – professed people of God, 12 tribes, God’s arrow-those who testify to Jesus].

22 “Let them try to tell us what happened long ago

so that we may consider the evidence.

Or let them tell us what the future holds,

so we can know what’s going to happen.

23 Yes, tell us what will occur in the days ahead.

Then we will know you are gods.

In fact, do anything―good or bad!

Do something that will amaze and frighten us.

24 But no! You are less than nothing and can do nothing at all.

Those who choose you pollute themselves.

25 “But I have stirred up a leader who will come from the north.

I have called him by name from the east.

I will give him victory over kings and princes.

He will trample them as a potter treads on clay.

26 “Who told you from the beginning

that this would happen?

Who predicted this,

making you admit that he was right?

No one said a word!

27 I was the first to tell Zion,

Look! Help is on the way!’

I will send Jerusalem[new Jerusalem true church-divine government-church government?] a messenger with good news.

28 Not one of your idols told you this.

Not one gave any answer when I asked.

29 See, they are all foolish, worthless things.

All your idols are as empty as the wind.

NLT Is 51:27 Raise a signal flag to the nations.

Sound the battle cry!

Mobilize them all against Babylon.

Prepare them to fight against her!

Bring out the armies of Ararat, Minni, and Ashkenaz.

Appoint a commander,

and bring a multitude of horses like swarming locusts!

28 Bring against her the armies of the nations―

led by the kings of the Medes

and all their captains and officers.

29 The earth trembles and writhes in pain,

for everything the Lord has planned against Babylon stands unchanged.

Babylon will be left desolate without a single inhabitant.

30 Her mightiest warriors no longer fight.

They stay in their barracks, their courage gone.

They have become like women.

The invaders have burned the houses

and broken down the city gates.

31 The news is passed from one runner to the next

as the messengers hurry to tell the king

that his city has been captured.

32 All the escape routes are blocked.

The marshes have been set aflame,

and the army is in a panic.

33 This is what the Lord of Heaven’s Armies,

the God of Israel[contenders with God – professed people of God, 12 tribes, God’s arrow-those who testify to Jesus], says:

Babylon is like wheat on a threshing floor,

about to be trampled.

In just a little while

her harvest will begin.”

34 “King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon has eaten and crushed us

and drained us of strength.

He has swallowed us like a great monster

and filled his belly with our riches.

He has thrown us out of our own country.

35 Make Babylon suffer as she made us suffer,”

say the people of Zion.

Make the people of Babylonia pay for spilling our blood,”

says Jerusalem[new Jerusalem true church-divine government-church government?].

Yes Babylon has been captured. She is paying for the blood that she spilled. The nations, the 12 tribes, are to sound the battle cry to prepare to fight against her.

NLT Lam 1:14 “He wove my sins into ropes

to hitch me to a yoke of captivity.

The Lord sapped my strength and turned me over to my enemies;

I am helpless in their hands.

15 “The Lord has treated my mighty men

with contempt.

At his command a great army has come

to crush my young warriors.

The Lord has trampled his beloved city

like grapes are trampled in a winepress.[those remaining in the winepress of church are the bitter grapes!]

16 “For all these things I weep;

tears flow down my cheeks.

No one is here to comfort me;

any who might encourage me are far away.

My children have no future,

for the enemy has conquered us.”

Ezekiel 34:18

Isn’t it enough for you to keep the best of the pastures for yourselves? Must you also trample down the rest? Isn’t it enough for you to drink clear water for yourselves? Must you also muddy the rest with your feet?

A Vision of Ripe Fruit

NLT Amos 8:1 Then the Sovereign Lord showed me another vision. In it I saw a basket filled with ripe fruit. 2 “What do you see, Amos?” he asked.

I replied, “A basket full of ripe fruit.”

Then the Lord said, “Like this fruit, Israel[contenders with God – professed people of God, 12 tribes, God’s arrow-those who testify to Jesus] is ripe for punishment! I will not delay their punishment again. 3 In that day the singing in the Temple will turn to wailing. Dead bodies will be scattered everywhere. They will be carried out of the city in silence. I, the Sovereign Lord, have spoken!”

4 Listen to this, you who rob the poor

and trample down the needy!

5 You can’t wait for the Sabbath day to be over

and the religious festivals to end

so you can get back to cheating the helpless.

You measure out grain with dishonest measures

and cheat the buyer with dishonest scales.

6 And you mix the grain you sell

with chaff swept from the floor.

Then you enslave poor people

for one piece of silver or a pair of sandals.

7 Now the Lord has sworn this oath

by his own name, the Pride of Israe[contenders with God – professed people of God, 12 tribes, God’s arrow-those who testify to Jesus]l:

I will never forget

the wicked things you have done!

8 The earth will tremble for your deeds,

and everyone will mourn.

The ground will rise like the Nile River at floodtime;

it will heave up, then sink again.

9 “In that day,” says the Sovereign Lord,

I will make the sun go down at noon

and darken the earth while it is still day.

10 I will turn your celebrations into times of mourning

and your singing into weeping.

You will wear funeral clothes

and shave your heads to show your sorrow―

as if your only son had died.

How very bitter that day will be![the day of his wrath – when those enslaving the poor and cheating the helpless]]

NLT Micah 4:10 Writhe and groan like a woman in labor,

you people of Jerusalem[new Jerusalem true church-divine government-church government?],

for now you must leave this city

to live in the open country.

You will soon be sent in exile

to distant Babylon.

But the Lord will rescue you there;

he will redeem you from the grip of your enemies.

11 Now many nations have gathered against you.

Let her be desecrated,” they say.

Let us see the destruction of Jerusalem[new Jerusalem true church-divine government-church government?].”

12 But they do not know the Lord’s thoughts

or understand his plan.

These nations don’t know

that he is gathering them together

to be beaten and trampled

like sheaves of grain on a threshing floor.

13 “Rise up and crush the nations, O Jerusalem[new Jerusalem true church-divine government-church government?]!”

says the Lord.

For I will give you iron horns and bronze hooves,

so you can trample many nations to pieces.

You will present their stolen riches to the Lord ,

their wealth to the Lord of all the earth.”

NLT Matt 7:6

Don’t waste what is holy on people who are unholy . Don’t throw your pearls to pigs! They will trample the pearls, then turn and attack you.

Luke 21:24

They will be killed by the sword or sent away as captives to all the nations of the world. And Jerusalem[new Jerusalem true church-divine government-church government?] will be trampled down by the Gentiles until the period of the Gentiles comes to an end.

Hebrews 10:29

Just think how much worse the punishment will be for those who have trampled on the Son of God, and have treated the blood of the covenant, which made us holy, as if it were common and unholy, and have insulted and disdained the Holy Spirit who brings God’s mercy to us.

Revelation 11:2

But do not measure the outer courtyard, for it has been turned over to the nations. They will trample the holy city for 42 months.

Revelation 14:20

The grapes were trampled in the winepress outside the city, and blood flowed from the winepress in a stream about 180 miles long and as high as a horse’s bridle.

We are the grapes that are trampled outside the city, in the wilderness. We still need to ensure that we are not the bitter grapes!

Watched a show on the shroud of Turin after that there was a history channel show that talked about?? [something notable I’m praying to remember???]

How are we to break these clay pots, to rule the nations.

Micah 4: 13 says:

Rise up and crush the nations, O Jerusalem[new Jerusalem true church-divine government-church government?]!”

says the Lord.

For I will give you iron [strong authority;]horns[powers] and bronze hooves[brass-perfect humanity – members of Christ with fiery experiences],

so you can trample many nations to pieces.

You will present their stolen riches to the Lord ,

their wealth to the Lord of all the earth.”

We embrace this Power and strong authority that the Lord gives us, not using our own rod, but the Lord’s to trample these nations and then present their stolen riches to the Lord!!
