PresentsPamphlet 1802 Malachi kc 1-3
They have "gotten the victory" over the beast and now notice the song they sing!
I feel it is important at this late hour... consider that we were perhaps given an 11th hour wake-up call on 9-11... that we take the time to understand what happens just before the second advent, not only what spiritual condition our people are in, but what it is God's servants, His true "messengers" whom He has called out of Babylon, will be doing, and are doing, in these last days. Let us begin our introduction by first documenting from the Book of Revelation that the Song of Moses, which is the 32nd chapter of Deuteronomy, was written for this final generation. Why go there and do that? Just hang in there with eyes and ears open and you'll understand why.
Notice that this is a "SIGN" in heaven, a "great and marvellous" sign! John saw "seven" angels having the seven last plagues and in them is filled up the wrath of God. What does that mean, "in them is filled up the wrath of God"?Rev. 15:1-4
And I saw anothersign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God.
In other words, the "7" angels who have the seven last plagues are going to execute His wrath and finish His work. Do you know what the word "angel" means in Greek?filled = ôåëÝùteleoôtel-eh'-o G5055
From G5056; to end, that is, complete, execute, conclude, discharge (a debt):—accomplish, make an end, expire, fill up, finish, go over, pay, perform.
Note for the deeper scholar: Take Strong's and look up the words "done all" in Eph. 6:13 and understand that God's elect are going to "accomplish", "finish", "all the work" for which they were predestined and called and chosen before the foundation of this earth age (Rom. 8)!angel = aggelos, ang'-el-os, Greek 32; from aggello [probably derivative from Greek 71 (ago); compare Greek 34 (agele)] (to bring tidings); a messenger; especially an "angel"; by implication a pastor :- angel, messenger.
The next verse documents that it is those who overcome the beast and his image and his mark and the number of his name, i.e. those wicked "worn stones" (the kenites) who act in his authority, i.e. in his name. (If you have wisdom and understanding, which those of the churches of Philadelphia and Smyrna have because they love and study His Word, then you can count (trace) those smooth stones (Rev. 13:18) from the fig grove to the planting of the fig tree to right now.
They have "gotten the victory" over the beast and now notice the song they sing! (Those victors, those champions of their people, must be very strong willed or something! I have trouble a lot of times just declaring victory over my flesh (a beast indeed) much lest Satan. Oh wait, I remember David and Goliath! God went before David and gave him the victory because he trusted in Him. God was His strength! So, let's see... the flesh may win a few battles over us but Goliath is going down! He is going to get "stoned" to death and have his head cut off with own sword!) And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.
Look there! His "great and marvellous works" was the "sign" John saw of those "seven angels" with the seven last plagues in whom was "filled up" the wrath of God. By the way, do you remember what those disciples upon whom the Holy Spirit lighted as a "fire" in Acts chapter 2 were speaking about, even in that cloven language which ALL the people of the various nations understood clearly in their own dialect? This is a good time to really open your eyes and ears!And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.
All those present from all the "nations round about" (even they are listed here so we know what languages we're talking about) heard clearly and distinctly in their own dialect EXACTLY what those disciples were saying. They just thought they were a little "nutty" because of what they were speaking about! Do you know what they were speaking about?Acts 2:8-11
And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born?
 Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia,
Imagine that! They were talking about the same thing John saw in Rev. 15, His great and marvelous works of the final generation! Those "seven" angels who fill-up His wrath, who finish His work! It is well documented by Peter right there in Acts 2 which you can read for yourself. Here is the reaction of those present from those nations when they heard the disciples speaking about those wonderful works of God, i.e. about the sons and daughters who come forth and serve the LORD in the LAST DAYS! Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes,
 Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.
Do you know what it meaneth? Peter knew what it meant and he soon stood up and told us exactly what it meant! It was a sign, even an example, of the "great and marvelous works" that the sons and daughters (who are by default "brothers and sisters" - think Philadelphia), the "seed" who would come forth in the final generation and finish the work (Ps. 22:31). You see, it is written that they would see (understand) visions, the visions of the prophets, and "being filled with oil, his Spirit that He would pour out through His sons of oil (Zech. 4)", would prophesy (teach) their brothers and sisters of the House of Israel and turn them back to Him, to His Word.Acts 2:12
And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another,What meaneth this?
..To study the Bible is
the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
