Christian Fiction (Revelation 15:1-8; 16:1) [caption id="attachment_137" align="alignleft" width="159"] Edward-Mijarez[/caption] "Then I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous: seven angels having the seven last plagues, for in them the wrath of God is complete. 2 And I saw something like a sea of glass mingled with fire, and those who have the victory over the beast, over his image and over his mark and over the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, having harps of God. 3 They sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying: “Great and marvelous are Your works, Lord God Almighty! Just and true are Your ways, O King of the saints! 4 Who shall not fear You, O Lord, and glorify Your name? For You alone are holy. For all nations shall come and worship before…

Reaping the Grapes of Wrath

Christian-Fiction (Rev.14:17-20) [caption id="attachment_137" align="alignleft" width="164"] Edward-Mijarez[/caption] “Then another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle. And another angel came out from the altar, who had power over fire, and he cried with a loud cry to him who had the sharp sickle, saying, “Thrust in your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth, for her grapes are fully ripe.” So the angel thrust his sickle into the earth and gathered the vine of the earth, and threw it into the great winepress of the wrath of God. And the winepress was trampled outside the city, and blood came out of the winepress, up to the horses’ bridles, for one thousand six hundred furlongs.” Jesus gives…

The Harvest by Sickle

Christian Fiction (Rev.14:14-16) [caption id="attachment_137" align="alignleft" width="129"] Edward-Mijarez[/caption] “Then I looked and behold, a white cloud, and on the cloud sat One like the Son of Man [Jesus], having on his head a golden crown, and in His hand a sharp sickle. And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to Him who sat on the cloud, “Thrust in Your sickle and reap, for the time has come for You to reap, for the harvest of the earth is ripe.” So He who sat on the cloud thrust in His sickle on the earth, and the earth was reaped.” Judgment at the End of the Age http://amzn.to/2fbchhu When we think of the word “harvest” in biblical terminology, we think about winning souls to the Kingdom.…

The Three Angels Message

Christian Fiction (Rev.14:6-13) [caption id="attachment_137" align="alignleft" width="120"] Edward-Mijarez[/caption] “Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth—to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people—saying with a loud voice, “Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.” And another angel followed, saying, “Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she has made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.” Then the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand,…

And I Heard a Voice from Heaven

Christian Fiction (Rev. 14:1-5) [caption id="attachment_137" align="alignleft" width="145"] Edward-Mijarez[/caption] “Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads. And I heard a voice from heaven, like the voice of many waters, and like the voice of loud thunder. And I heard the sound of harpists playing their harps. They sang as it were a new song before the throne, before the four living creatures, and the elders; and no one could learn that song except the hundred and forty-four thousand who were redeemed from the earth. These were the ones who were not defiled with women, for they are virgins. These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These…

The Beasts of the Sea

Christian Fiction (Rev. 13:11-18) [caption id="attachment_137" align="alignleft" width="134"] Edward-Mijarez[/caption] “Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. And he exercises all authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the…

And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name. Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him the power, his throne, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast. So they worshipped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshipped the…

The Dragon Persecuted the Woman

Christian-Fiction (Rev. 12:13-17) [caption id="attachment_137" align="alignleft" width="184"] Edward-Mijarez[/caption] "Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male child. But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. So the serpent spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood. But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. And the dragon was enraged with…

When Was Satan Cast Out Heaven

Christian-Fiction (Rev. 12:7-12 NKJV) [caption id="attachment_137" align="alignleft" width="184"] Edward-Mijarez[/caption] “And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer. So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him” (Rev. 12:7-9). We have a great revelation: “And war broke out in heaven…” It is difficult to imagine that war broke out in heaven, and the Devil was kicked out of heaven. Satan can no longer live in heaven, but he still has access to heaven and, as long…

The Most Beautiful Woman Israel

Christian-Fiction (Rev. 12:1-6 ESV) “And a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was pregnant and was crying out in birth pains and the agony of giving birth. And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great red dragon, with seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads seven diadems. His tail swept down a third of the stars of heaven and cast them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she bore her child he might devour it. She gave birth to a male child, one who is to rule all the nations with a rod…

He Shall Reign Forever and Ever

Christian-Fiction (Rev. 11:15-19) [caption id="attachment_117" align="alignleft" width="190"] christian-fiction.com[/caption] In the midst of the woes and of the judgments of the Great Tribulation, loud voices are heard in heaven, saying, “The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever” (Rev. 11:15). Thus far, the seven seal judgments and six trumpet judgments have passed. The Seventh Trumpet The seventh angel is about to sound the seventh and final trumpet judgment, which will subsequently bring the most lethal of all the judgments: The seven bowl judgments! There has been much death and destruction in the wake of all the previous judgments which have proceeded from the wrath of God. God’s people have long been raptured and are abiding with…

The Two Witnesses of Revelation

Another Mighty Angel In my last post titled, “The Little Book of Revelation,” we encountered another mighty angel. The mighty angel held a little book open in his hand. John was instructed by the Lord, “…Go, take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel who stands on the sea and on the earth” (Rev. 10:8). “So I went to the angel and said to him, “Give me the little book.” And he said to me, “Take and eat it; and it will make your stomach bitter, but it will be as sweet as honey in your mouth” (Rev. 10:9). The Book With Seven Seals I believe that the book which John is supposed to eat is the same book that had the seven seals. Depending…

The Little Book of Revelation

Introduction In my previous post, I covered “The Trumpet Judgments of Revelation.” We are now in chapter 10 of the Book of Revelation. Chapter 10 happens to be the interlude between the sixth and seventh trumpet judgment. This is the second interlude, as I previously explained, there will be an interlude between the sixth and seventh judgment for each of the three series of judgments. Also, I skipped ahead to complete the seven trumpet judgments, so as to maintain the continuity of the topic. So we now return to where we should be chronologically. The Mighty Angel “I saw still another mighty angel coming down from heaven, clothed with a cloud. And a rainbow was on his head, his face was like the sun, and his feet like pillars of…

The Trumpet Judgments of Revelation

The Pattern of Sevens In my previous post titled, “The Tribulation Saints,” I covered the “Interlude” between the 6th and the 7th seal judgment. I explained that the Apostle John used a pattern of sevens: The seven seal, seven trumpet, and seven bowl judgments. He also includes an interlude between the sixth and the seventh judgment for each of the three sets of seven judgments. The Interlude  Final Warning: Understanding the Trumpet Days of Revelation    $14.68      by Carl Gallups Why? James Vernon McGee explains, “Between the sixth and seventh of each, there is an interlude of seemingly extraneous (irrelevant) matter, but it is explanatory matter—it explains the action and answers certain questions. This is what chapter 7 will do for us. This principal of an explanatory interlude…

The Tribulation Saints

An Interlude In my previous post we studied “The Seven Seals of Revelation.” We found that the seven seals are part of God’s judgments upon people for rejecting Christ. Before we enter God’s second wave of judgments called “The Seven Trumpets of Revelation,” we must first examine an interlude given to us by John the Revelator. You will notice that the number seven is used in each of the three waves of judgments: Seven seals, seven trumpets, and seven bowls. You will also find that before the seventh judgment in each case, there is always an interlude. Why is there an interlude? I believe that John gives us an interlude so that we can catch-up and to help us to not get lost. We looked at chapter six when we…

The Seven Seals of Revelation

Background The Rapture has occurred and John the revelator has caught “A Glimpse of Heaven.” The Lamb has taken “The Scroll With Seven Seals” from Him (The Father) who sits on the throne. We are now approaching the time when the Lamb will take the scroll and begin to remove each seal of judgment and unleash it upon the earth. The earth is filled with sin, since the church has been taken away and the restrainer has been moved out of the way! The Unholy Trinity Is At Work Upon the Earth The Antichrist and the false prophet continue along their path of world domination and destruction as Satan races against time. The unholy trinity’s primary plan is to take away from God as many souls as he possibly can,…

Worthy Is the Lamb

"The pre-Tribulation Rapture" >  "The Glimpse of Heaven" The Scene in Heaven In my previous post titled, “The Scroll With Seven Seals,” we found a scene in heaven where a question asked; “Who is worthy to open the scroll and to loose its seals?” The question came in Revelation 5:2, and the question is answered in Revelation 5:7, “Then He [Jesus] came and took the scroll out of the right hand of Him [The Father] who sat on the throne.” The Lamb Takes the Scroll “Now when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints” (Rev. 5:8). The Four Living Creatures The four…

The Scroll With Seven Seals

Daniel’s Prophecy In my previous posts, the Rapture has occurred and John the Apostle caught a Glimpse of Heaven. We are now heading toward The Tribulation! In his prophecy of the 70 weeks or 490 years, Daniel said the Tribulation would be “one week” and uses the Hebrew word designating a week of years, or seven years (Daniel 9:24-27). The first 69 weeks of years, which started with the decree of Artaxerxes to restore the walls of Jerusalem and ended with the rejection of Jesus, was exactly 483 years. And the Tribulation, or the last week of years, will be seven years long (Daniel 9:24-27). Tribulation: A Seven Year Period In Revelation, we find the seven years divided into two periods of 1260 days, or 42 months, or three-and-one-half years,…

Best Christian-Fiction Books: The Glimpse of Heaven!

The Rapture In my last post, we covered “The pre-Tribulation Rapture.” What do we know? We know that the Rapture is a future event whereby Jesus will come for His bride—the church. He will not be coming for a particular church, but, rather for those of us who received Jesus Christ and asked Him to be our Lord and Savior. When will the rapture occur? “But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only” (Matt. 24:36 ESV). This is important to know because there have been many who have come saying I am the Christ. We don’t need to bother trying to figure out when He’s coming, we just need to know that He is coming! If…
