It's a fresh message from Dr. Don you take a peek at it right now on our that's T EW for the Encouraging Word again. You can call about finding out how to get a copy at 866898668999673 now Dr. Don Wilton 19 Revelation chapter 19. During these days, we all taking a journey through the word of God as we tried to discover what it is that God would have us to know concerning Angels. This is part three of I question what is it exactly that Angels walk through Angels do as I told you every day I'm going to read to you a different passage of Scripture today is going to be no exception.

I want to read to you from Revelation chapter 19 in verse 11. If you would just give me your attention for just one moment before we get into this passage because I think these things are very important in the book of Revelation chapter 19 we going to be dealing with the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. It's interesting that we gain a note that Angels have a very important part to play. Even in the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. Now they are off three comings of the Lord Jesus Christ.

The first coming is when Jesus Christ came down to earth and he was born in the flesh, the incarnation, we celebrate that on Christmas day, December 25.

That's when Jesus became flesh and dwelt among us.

That's the first coming of the Lord Jesus Christ when he was born in Bethlehem's major the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is not the second, I got I just stick with me for a moment. Remember that often Jesus was buried and he died.

Then he ascended into heaven, he went up into heaven, from the Mount of olives and he went to be seated at the right hand of the father and that's where Jesus is now with God the father in heaven sent his Holy Spirit. The third person of the Trinity is a person is the third part of the Trinity in the spirit of God is God. He sent himself in and by his spirit to come to this earth. And Jesus said don't worry I'm going to come back again while the second coming of the Lord in the Scriptures just called the coming of the Lord that's going to take place at the time of what we call the rapture of the church, and you can read about that in first Thessalonians chapter 4 as well as in some other passages but the second coming, which is the coming of our Lord is not going to be the second coming, as in the second coming, because Jesus is not going to come back to this earth the coming of our Lord of the second time that Jesus comes back the first time being his birth.

The second time that he comes back, he's not coming to this earth.

The Bible says that we are going to be caught up and regained a meeting in the air at me again to be with him forever.

We're going to go to heaven and God is going to remove all of those about to love him. We going to be taken out of this world and when we have taken out of this world.

The antichrist is going to sign a covenant with Israel. That's why whenever there is a peace accord my attention rises to a new high. Whenever there are peace efforts on the part of Israel. I really begin to pay attention not because anyone of us know the day or time, but we do know that the signing of that covenant with Israel by the antichrist is going to be preceded by the rapture of the church by the snatching of the church from this world at this coming which is known as the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, according to first Thessalonians chapter 5 that we are going to be saved on the coming rock Revelation chapter 3 in verse 10 we going to be taken out of this world and regained to be with Jesus Christ in heaven and the great tribulation is gained antichrist for seven years related to those people who are left behind. Those who said no to Jesus Christ at the end of the great tribulation at the end of seven years we get coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, which is actually what the Bible talks about is the second coming.

Why is it called the second coming, because it's the second time that Jesus actually comes back to earth the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ involved. He's actually coming down to earth onto this land that we colder the first time he came down as a baby born in Bethlehem.

The second time he's going to come back down is at the end of the great tribulation. He's going to be the rider on the white horse, and all believers again to be with him and he is going to march against the antichrist who is going to be harnessing all his troops that are going to come together at a place called Armageddon or the Valley of Megiddo where the final battle of the ages will take place at the end of that time, Satan's great economies guided by the angel of the Lord is going to companies going to bind Satan put him in prison for a thousand years. Jesus Christ is going to set up a thousand year reign upon the earth and at the end of the thousand year reign. He is going to set up the new heaven and new earth, which is preceded by the great white throne judgment which is the final judgment of all of those who are outside of Jesus Christ.

Any questions right now, in Revelation chapter 19 we are dealing with the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, which is the third time that Jesus is going to come from heaven to us, but it's only the second time that he's going to actually land upon this earth. Now let's read about what happens verse 11 of chapter 19 I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called faithful and true justice he judges and makes war. His eyes are like blazing fire on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but himself.

He is dressed in a row dipped in blood, and his name is the word God remembered John chapter 1 verse one Bible says in the beginning was the old site together in the beginning was the was with God and the laws of all right will be with with the word now in the beginning was the word the word was with God and the word was God the Word was God. He was not a God he was God, Jesus Christ, the son of God, the Bible says in verse 13 that his name is the word of God. The armies of heaven were following him. In verse 14 that you and me riding on white horses and grace in fine linen, white and clean out of his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nation. He will rule them with an iron scepter.

He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty. Why does he do that Bible says at the battle of Armageddon which is about to be described that the blood will flow as high as the Brits on the end of bridles in the mouths of horses.

The Bible says that the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is going to be followed by the pouring of the anger of the righteousness of God upon the sinfulness of mankind. Now look what happens in verse 1816 on his robe and on his thigh he has this name written, King of Kings and Lord of lords to fall on their moment because we guide to discovering a little while if not today.

Next Sunday we going to discover that even King Herod, the man who tried to kill Jesus Christ when he was born that that was his big problem.

King Herod believed that he was King of Kings and Lord of lords, and we going to discover what God does to him and the interesting thing to discover about what God does to Herod as a result of his on a tree. God already does what he does but he sends an angel to God is making a statement. God is making a statement about he is on his robe and on his thigh he has this name written, King of Kings and Lord of Lord.

Verse 17 I saw an angel what Angel and Angel.

You notice that singular, I saw an angel. What's the difference between an angel and the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is everywhere he is omniscient and omnipresent, omnipotent, he's all-powerful, he's everywhere. He's all knowing angels are not.

That's why every time you read about angels, God sends one Angel with one responsibility to carry out one assignment at a time and Angel does not have the power or the authority or the means to do anything beyond himself.

We got to understand where God places these angels now look what happens year I saw an angel standing in the sun cried with a loud voice to all the birds flying in midair, gathered together for the great supper of God, so that you may eat the flesh of kings, general and mighty men, of horses and their riders and the flesh of all people, free and slave, small and great, and ironically when we get to Revelation chapter 20 we going to discover that at the great white throne judgment that this is a precursor to the great white throne judgment because of the great white throne judgment. The Bible says people of all nations and all tribes that did great and small are going to stand before God and if your name is not found written in the Lamb's book of life that you will be cost into outer darkness into the place where the Bible says they will be wailing and gnashing of teeth and so small and great, stand here and all participants in the recipient of the rock of God.

Verse 19. Then I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies gathered together to make war against the rider on the horse and his army. That's against Jesus Christ and all of those of us who love the Lord but the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who had performed the miraculous signs on his ball. With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast. The number 666. They had worship the antichrist and had worshiped his image. The two of them were gathered together, and were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur. The rest of them were killed with the sword that came out of the mouth of the rider on the horse, and all boards themselves on the flesh. What is it exactly that angels do we see in the first three or four number one angels give direct number two angels wait for orders number three angels follow orders immediately. Number four. Angels mean business angels mean back with more of Dr. Don Wilton in the series on angels. I don't think I've ever heard anybody would not say that angels business. There is, and I pray you will stay with us.

You insist I might connect with online it This phone number 866899673 Chinatown 866899673. Now that today's show you something is angels as the in of humanity.

I didn't realize this until I began to discover this in God's word at the beginning of the existence of mankind and at the end of the existence of mankind. God's angels are put to work, and in both instances they mean business. Let's look at the end of the spectrum right to Revelation chapter 22-year-old Leah so you can just continue to read with me. I remember the battle of Armageddon is taken place. It is one incredible back God has spoken in Jesus Christ. The rider on the white horse the antichrist is being defeated and taken into captivity now look what happens. Verse one. I saw an angel you noticed that anyone was that by the way, I saw one Angel and Angel coming down out of heaven. By the way could I just lost anyone who still docs where heaven exactly is it's Bible doesn't say I saw an angel coming up out of heaven. The angel came down from heaven if you want to know where heaven is look up again to see the floorboards of God's heaven the foster array of his glory, the galaxies of God's grace.

The infinity of God's majesty like an array stretched out before such of which are human minds cannot even comprehend. I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the abyss and holding any's handbrake train hello there. Can you imagine that. Can you imagine just one minute that God at the end of mankind as we know it would, in contrast, the key to the this to the hand of an angel. What is this all about. This is the absolute darkest of all dark places. This is the place where the Bible is about to tell us what Satan is going to be bound for thousand years. This is the place that is so re-totally and completely avoided the holiness of Almighty God and get on at the end of God's age entrusts the key to the this to the angel that God commands to go down and take care of business.

I think because he knows that angels mean business. Not only that he gives team a great train. So can you imagine your comes the angel from heaven right off of the battle of Armageddon. God's given him a key and God's given him a great train.

Look what happens. This Angel goes to work. The Bible says he sees the Dragon that ancient serpent is the devil Satan bound him for thousand years. He threw him into the abyss, and locked it and sealed it over him to keep him from deceiving the nations anymore until the thousand years were ended and then often that he would be set free just for a moment to prove once and for all.

The ultimate majesty of the righteous and the loving God, what I want you to just keep in hand they now turn back with me very quickly to Genesis. Let's go to the beginning of all of this. Genesis chapter 3 how this is this is incredible folks.

You might you might remember the story. I certainly know it's one of my favorite writer the beginning of the creation of the world.

When God created the world the heavens and the earth and all that are in the 100% folks, the Bible does not teach devolution. The Bible teaches that God created the heavens and the earth.

God is the one who is in control.

God made everything without exception in here at the beginning of time in Genesis chapter 3 which is the word of the living God.

We read that man has sinned against God, man has disappointed God man has let God down. Sin has entered into his life.

Well, look what happens after the man has sinned, and often God drove the man he placed on the east side of the garden of Eden cherubim.

Now don't get all tied down in cherubim and seraphim going to be talking about them at a later date within the next 50 years, I'm sure, but I'm going to be talking about exactly these angels. But God placed angels listen to stand God. They had a flaming sword flashing back in full God the way to the tree of life God. Listen to this.

Folks God has not only given to angels the privilege of guarding the way to the tree of life God gives to angels the key to the abyss into which Satan is going to be cost for thousand years almost too much to comprehend the bookends of humanity. God has these angels at work. Angels mean business. Now watch this verse tells us three things, one that angels cannot be bargained with angels, cannot be bargained with blaming business that I've heard some people say that entre what we do will just have a little time with angels.

Sharon will strike a deal with them.

You can't bargain with angels number two angels cannot be bribed. You cannot play angels all you cannot water them down.

You cannot wear them down that we pretty good at that on wheat with goodie. A. Beg my pardon as human beings we are so good sometimes trying to bargain with God.

With so good sometimes is trying to bribe God you know will Lord you know if we just do this then if you wouldn't mind doing that and if you know if the Lord you got understand Unifi gave up two years of my life. Now if you just keep your side of the bargain. You know what God is teaching us about his angels, folks, he's teaching us that angels cannot be bargained with angels cannot be bribed and furthermore angels cannot be need, you cannot bully and Angel into submission.

You cannot throw your weight around when it comes to angels, because angels mean business angels are God's commission agents. They are on specific assignment and what God is trying to teach us is very simply, this you cannot take God out of the equation, you cannot do it.

You cannot only not take God out of the equation, but you can never consider angels apart from God, because angels apart from God, are rendered useless or nonexistent. They function why because their business is tied into the heart of the sovereign God, you cannot take angels out of the equation of God. Folks listen to me. There are segments of the New Age movement today coming out of Hollywood that are sitting up Angel worship by setting up six by setting up different organizations. People are writing books and I signed all we've got to do is we go to turn our hearts and our minds toward angels. It is impossible, it is impossible my friends because you cannot take angels out of the equation when it comes to God.

You cannot consider angels by themselves, because angels by themselves on no and void. There is no argument or discussion when it comes to angels oxide of the wonderful work of God in Christ Jesus. Angels mean business number five angels carry out God's judgment. Now we go to listen to this one real closely today.

Folks angels carry out God's judgment is our most remarkable thing to try and even understand what God is trying to say to us that we read about in Revelation chapter 20 God was going to do something to Satan. Following the battle of Armageddon. He dispatched an angel. I want you to turn with me very very quickly to the book of acts. In chapter 12 to a passage that I absolutely do not want to read acts chapter 12. I want to show you something here remarkable. This passage annexed. Chapter 12 has to do with King Herod, not think about King Herod, King Herod. This is the man who gathered the wise men together meets a gentleman thank you so much for coming to visit me.

You're a great group of manual intelligently on a year and we give you the order of merit from our nation.

I want you to Don I want you to find this brand-new baby boy this King of the Jews that you tell me about and I want you to bring them to me so that I can worship and we know that that's not what he had in mind. What he actually was saying is listen. You gonna find this little brat and bring them to me because I'm gonna decapitate him. Why, because I'm looking I'm in charge around here. Excuse me I you dealing with your love. I mean on the genie around you don't mess around with me, I'm King of Kings and I'm Lord of lords and the whole history of Herod's life was a history that was about the elevation of himself as a person. He was the ultimate humanist. This man believed that everything revolved around him will look what happened to him yet in verse 21 on the appointed day of acts chapter 12 in verse 21 Herod wearing his royal robes sat on his throne and delivered a public address to the people now can you just feel the grandeur. Can you feel the equation here. Can you just see this taking place there is Herod dressed in his royal robes sitting on his royal throne about to inform his subjects about things well at the Bible tells us in verse 22.

What he subjects the bakeshop. This is the voice of God not of the man listen. Karen was so powerful he was such a Dick tater. This man was so much in charge this man had elevated his position to such an incredible height that even his people began to fall down and worship him in sight shortly. Herod is no ordinary man this is this is God himself. I mean, this is not mean we need to just what happens in verse 23 immediately because Herod did not give praise to God. And Angel of the Lord struck him down and he was eaten by worms and died in by the way, that is a reference to the fact that this man contracted cancer and he died. He was killed. The Bible says friends that Angel and Angel was sent down to dispatch God's judgment upon this man called Herod who, what does that tell us, tells us three things someone what we've been saying all along. Angels do not tolerate idolatry. They do not tolerate idolatry, and if angels are speaking the voice of God. What angels are doing is they are saying God says thou shalt have no other gods before me. And if God says that God means it, and if you put anything in place of your worship of God, you're going to have to pay the consequences. Angels do not tolerate idolatry number two angels act decisively the greatest battles in the world with those in which decisive action was taken place in which there was a decisiveness. Angels act decisively speaking the voice of God, and number three. They ensure the continuation of God's plan and what God wants us to do an angel agents dispatch God to ensure the quality New Age and of the plan of the powerful message of Dr. concept of knowing God has a plan for you is what we had to next year. The broadcast to take a moment and just here for my pastor. Are you ready you pray this prayer with me right now.
