[It has been in my heart to bring together scripture that will tell us what to expect when we come up in the resurrection, the first resurrection. It was also my intent to do so without comment, but we all know how that goes.]
(1Jn 3:1-3 KJV) Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of Almighty: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew Him not. 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of Almighty, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as He is. 3:3 And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.
(1Co 15:50-58 KJV) Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of Almighty; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. 15:51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.15:53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 15:54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. 15:55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? 15:56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. 15:57 But thanks be to Almighty, which giveth us the victory through our Master Yahshua Messiah. 15:58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Most High, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Most High.
[We will not remain as we are today, but will be as we were created to be – His image.]
(Isa 25:6-9 KJV) And in this mountain shall Yahweh of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined. 25:7 And He will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all people, and the vail that is spread over all nations. 25:8 He will swallow up death in victory; and the Most High Almighty will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of His people shall He take away from off all the earth: for Yahweh hath spoken it. 25:9 And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our Almighty; we have waited for Him, and He will save us: this is Yahweh; we have waited for Him, we will be glad and rejoice in His salvation.
(1Pe 1:6-9 KJV) Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: 1:7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and splendor at the appearing of Yahshua Messiah. 1:8 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see Him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of honor:
(Psa 17:15 KJV) As for me, I will behold Thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with Thy likeness.
[What joy to see the face of Him who died for us, willingly. To finally be like Him in thought, word, deed, and yes in perfection of appearance.]
(Isa 66:18-23 KJV) For I know their works and their thoughts: it shall come, that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come, and see My splendor. 66:19 And I will set a sign among them, and I will send those that escape of them unto the nations, to Tarshish, Pul, and Lud, that draw the bow, to Tubal, and Javan, to the isles afar off, that have not heard My fame, neither have seen My splendor; and they shall declare my honor among the Gentiles. 66:20 And they shall bring all your brethren for an offering unto Yahweh out of all nations upon horses, and in chariots, and in litters, and upon mules, and upon swift beasts, to My set-apart mountain Jerusalem, saith Yahweh, as the children of Israel bring an offering in a clean vessel into the house of Yahweh. 66:21 And I will also take of them for priests and for Levites, saith Yahweh. 66:22 For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith Yahweh, so shall your seed and your name remain. 66:23 And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before Me, saith Yahweh.
[Is this the 1000 years of peace? I do not know, but it will come about in Yahweh’s own timing which is perfect.]
(Eze 14:21-23 KJV) For thus saith the Most High Almighty; How much more when I send my four sore judgments upon Jerusalem, the sword, and the famine, and the noisome beast, and the pestilence, to cut off from it man and beast? 14:22 Yet, behold, therein shall be left a remnant that shall be brought forth, both sons and daughters: behold, they shall come forth unto you, and ye shall see their way and their doings: and ye shall be comforted concerning the evil that I have brought upon Jerusalem, even concerning all that I have brought upon it. 14:23 And they shall comfort you, when ye see their ways and their doings: and ye shall know that I have not done without cause all that I have done in it, saith the Most High Almighty.
[When we are presented before Yahshua our choices will let Him know that His sacrifice was worth while. His blood was not wasted. It will also be true for each of us for we will be introduced to those we helped enter into His covenant.]
(Mat 24:29-31 KJV) Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: 24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 24:31 And He shall send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
(Joh 14:1-4 KJV) Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in Almighty, believe also in Me. 14:2 In My Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto Myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. 14:4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
(Psa 50:1-6 KJV) A Psalm of Asaph. The mighty Almighty, even Yahweh, hath spoken, and called the earth from the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof. 50:2 Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, Almighty hath shined. 50:3 Our Almighty shall come, and shall not keep silence: a fire shall devour before Him, and it shall be very tempestuous round about Him. 50:4 He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth, that He may judge His people. 50:5 Gather My saints together unto Me; those that have made a covenant with Me by sacrifice. 50:6 And the heavens shall declare His righteousness: for Almighty is judge Himself. Selah.
(Psa 91:1-16 KJV) He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 91:2 I will say of Yahweh, He is my refuge and my fortress: my Almighty; in Him will I trust. 91:3 Surely He shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. 91:4 He shall cover thee with His feathers, and under His wings shalt thou trust: His truth shall be thy shield and buckler. 91:5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; 91:6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. 91:7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. 91:8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. 91:9 Because thou hast made Yahweh, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; 91:10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. 91:11 For He shall give His angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. 91:12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. 91:13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet. 91:14 Because He hath set His love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known My name. 91:15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. 91:16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him My salvation.
(Isa 58:6-14 KJV) Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke? 58:7 Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh? 58:8 Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the honor of Yahweh shall be thy rereward. 58:9 Then shalt thou call, and Yahweh shall answer; thou shalt cry, and He shall say, Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity; 58:10 And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noonday: 58:11 And Yahweh shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not. 58:12 And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in. 58:13 If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on My set-apart day; and call the sabbath a delight, the set-apart of Yahweh, honourable; and shalt honour Him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words: 58:14 Then shalt thou delight thyself in Yahweh; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of Yahweh hath spoken it.
[When we covenant with Yahweh though the shed blood of Yahshua we are heir to all Yahweh’s promises for good.]
(Joh 14:15-21 KJV) If ye love Me, keep My commandments. 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, that He may abide with you for ever; 14:17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth Him not, neither knoweth Him: but ye know Him; for He dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. 14:18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
14:19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth Me no more; but ye see Me: because I live, ye shall live also. 14:20 At that day ye shall know that I am in My Father, and ye in Me, and I in you. 14:21 He that hath My commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth Me: and he that loveth Me shall be loved of My Father, and I will love him, and will manifest Myself to him.
(Hos 14:1-9 KJV) O Israel, return unto Yahweh thy Almighty; for thou hast fallen by thine iniquity. 14:2 Take with you words, and turn to Yahweh: say unto Him, Take away all iniquity, and receive us graciously: so will we render the calves of our lips. 14:3 Asshur shall not save us; we will not ride upon horses: neither will we say any more to the work of our hands, Ye are our gods: for in thee the fatherless findeth mercy. 14:4 I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for mine anger is turned away from him. 14:5 I will be as the dew unto Israel: he shall grow as the lily, and cast forth his roots as Lebanon. 14:6 His branches shall spread, and his beauty shall be as the olive tree, and his smell as Lebanon. 14:7 They that dwell under His shadow shall return; they shall revive as the corn, and grow as the vine: the scent thereof shall be as the wine of Lebanon. 14:8 Ephraim shall say, What have I to do any more with idols? I have heard him, and observed him: I am like a green fir tree. From Me is thy fruit found. 14:9 Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? prudent, and he shall know them? for the ways of Yahweh are right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors shall fall therein.
[It is not to late for anyone if they are willing to give their heart to Yahweh for He only has the power to heal wholly.]
(Jer 3:14-19 KJV) Turn, O backsliding children, saith Yahweh; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion: 3:15 And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding. 3:16 And it shall come to pass, when ye be multiplied and increased in the land, in those days, saith Yahweh, they shall say no more, The ark of the covenant of Yahweh: neither shall it come to mind: neither shall they remember it; neither shall they visit it; neither shall that be done any more. 3:17 At that time they shall call Jerusalem the throne of Yahweh; and all the nations shall be gathered unto it, to the name of Yahweh, to Jerusalem: neither shall they walk any more after the imagination of their evil heart. 3:18 In those days the house of Judah shall walk with the house of Israel, and they shall come together out of the land of the north to the land that I have given for an inheritance unto your fathers. 3:19 But I said, How shall I put thee among the children, and give thee a pleasant land, a goodly heritage of the hosts of nations? and I said, Thou shalt call Me, My father; and shalt not turn away from Me.
[Our Father is rich in houses and lands and He is able to keep His promises. Not only is He able, but He is waiting just outside the door of our repentance and seeking of Him.]
(Joh 10:1-5 KJV) Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. 10:2 But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. 10:3 To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out. 10:4 And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. 10:5 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.
[Those other voices make a clamor and disturb our peace, but when Yahweh speaks peace reigns. You can know His voice for it always agrees with torah lived in a loving way.]
(Rev 21:1-7 KJV) And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. 21:2 And I John saw the set-apart city, new Jerusalem, coming down from Almighty out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 21:3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of Almighty is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and Almighty Himself shall be with them, and be their Almighty. 21:4 And Almighty shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. 21:5 And He that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And He said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. 21:6 And He said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. 21:7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his Almighty, and he shall be My son.
(Rev 21:1-8 KJV) And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. 21:2 And I John saw the set-apart city, new Jerusalem, coming down from Almighty out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 21:3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of Almighty is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and Almighty Himself shall be with them, and be their Almighty. 21:4 And Almighty shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. 21:5 And He that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And He said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. 21:6 And He said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Tau, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. 21:7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his Almighty, and he shall be My son. 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
[I was tempted to delete verse 8 since this is a lesson to encourage not chastise. But what lesson is it if it does not warn of danger?]
(Rev 21:9-18 KJV) And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb's wife. 21:10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the set-apart Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from Almighty, 21:11 Having the splendor of Almighty: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal; 21:12 And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: 21:13 On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates. 21:14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. 21:15 And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof. 21:16 And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal. 21:17 And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel. 21:18 And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass.
(Rev 21:19-27 KJV) And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald; 21:20 The fifth, sardonic; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst. 21:21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass. 21:22 And I saw no temple therein: for Yahweh the Almighty Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. 21:23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the splendor of Almighty did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. 21:24 And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it. 21:25 And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there. 21:26 And they shall bring the splendor and honour of the nations into it. 21:27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.
(Psa 69:28 KJV) Let them be blotted out of the book of the living, and not be written with the righteous.
(Exo 32:31-33 KJV) And Moses returned unto Yahweh, and said, Oh, this people have sinned a great sin, and have made them gods of gold. 32:32 Yet now, if thou wilt forgive their sin; and if not, blot me, I pray thee, out of thy book which thou hast written. 32:33 And Yahweh said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against Me, him will I blot out of My book.
(Psa 56:8 KJV) Thou tellest my wanderings: put Thou my tears into Thy bottle: are they not in Thy book?
(Psa 139:16 KJV) Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in Thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.
[Yahweh has a book! He has written it, not man! Therefore it is perfect! That book contains all there is to know about each of us, in minute detail for it records each tear. When we are presented with its truth we will finally get our answers to why.
Yahweh created us in His image, therefore perfect. It is our demanding on using our free choice to choose that which is not pleasing to Yahweh that causes us pain, and sometimes it also causes others pain.
Yahweh is a patient Almighty and gives us all the time we need to come into agreement with Him. What value are the pleasures of the world when compared to the pleasures of Yahweh which never fail or cause pain. Still if you are not interested in having a perfect life later you might consider the power of believing in and agreeing with Yahweh in this life since it gives His followers so much strength and hope to live today in His favor.]
(Heb 11:6 KJV) But without faith it is impossible to please Him: for He that cometh to Yahweh must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.
[The answer to all our problems, Yahweh our creator, the Most High over all the earth, the Almighty of all mighty ones. The lover of His children! Our provider, protector, in all levels of our lives.]
