Vision #302 June 23/21 Wed am Angel Ariel: Rev 6:9-11 The 5th Seal- Not Shrinking Back
I was bowed before the Lord God Almighty for my God time/just be time. I noticed the angel Ariel approach me to my right and then stood before me. He spoke: “Servant of the Most High, come.” I took the angel’s hand and we walked past the area before God. Somewhere at the end of this area is where I look to see the visions.
Before me was a partial view of an altar; the right side of it as if I was looking at it from behind it. I saw the white steps that lead to the Lord Jesus. On the right side and just below the altar and beside it were a large group of saints. They were bowed before the Lord Jesus. My perspective changed and I saw them from a side position. They stood up and were talking at the foot of the steps. I saw them moving their hands while they spoke but I couldn’t hear what they were saying. Then a beautiful angel appeared on the top of the steps and presented them a perfectly folded pure white garment. I asked the angel why there was only one white garment as there were many before the throne? And He replied: “The one robe represents the robes they will all receive.” I then understood that these were saints who had been martyred for their faith. They were asking the Lord when He would avenge them.
Rev 6:9-11 “When He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar, the souls of those who had been slain because of the word of God and the testimony they had maintained. They called out in a loud voice, “
How long, Sovereign Lord, holy and true, until You judge the inhabitants of the earth and avenge our blood?” Then each of them was given a white robe and they were told to wait a little longer, until the full number of their fellow servants, their brothers and sisters were killed just as they had been.”
I understood that there is much more here that needs to be understood. Jesus reminded me of Rev 12:11-12: “They triumphed over him (satan) by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.” Shrink back means to recant your belief in Jesus. When you shrink back, you have rejected Christ and have changed your allegiance from Jesus to the enemy. This is what Jesus wants to warn us about. In Matt 10:33 Jesus said, “Whoever disowns Me before others, I will disown them before My Father in heaven.” This is serious! Are you hearing me?
In Heb.10:38-39 it says, “For in just a very little while, He who is coming will come and will not delay but My righteous one will live by faith. And if he shrinks back, I will not be pleased with him. But we do not belong to those who shrink back and are destroyed, but to those who have faith and are saved.”
What would it take for you to be able to stand so strong in your faith that you would not shrink back from persecution or the threat of death because of your testimony of Jesus? I believe fear is the biggest obstacle the enemy holds over Believers.
Believers must come to a place of total trust in the Lord Jesus which is only possible with a close relationship with Him. I encourage you to learn who you are in the Lord and let that knowledge go from your head deep into your heart. Understand your identity in Christ- how He truly sees you then you are able to see Him clearly (lens cleanse). Understand that you can trust God in all things; that He is for you and that will never leave you nor forsake you no matter your circumstance. This is the place that will help you to put fear under your feet. Earth is fleeting and heaven is eternal. Focus on the eternal and your reward that will outshine the sun! Ps 37:6
In June 1415, John Hus (rhymes with goose) was tied up to a stake with wood and straw piled up to his neck and once more was asked to recant his faith to save his life. He responded with:
“God is my witness that the things charged against me I never preached. In the same truth of the Gospel which I have written, taught, and preached, drawing upon the sayings and positions of the holy doctors, I am ready to die today.”
In Matt 16:24-26: Jesus said, “If anyone would come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me, for whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.”
And for those who believe in the false doctrine of hyper grace will be eternally regretful. Sigh
