First Bowl: Loathsome Sores

2 So the first went and poured out his bowl upon the earth, and a foul and loathsome sore came upon the men who had the mark of the beast and those who worshipped his image.

Prelude to the Bowl Judgements

15 When 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 Your alone are holy. For all nations shall come and worship before You, For Your judgements have been manifested.” 5 After these things I looked, and behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened. 6 And out of the temple came the seven angels having the seven plagues, clothed in pure bright linen, and having their chests girded with golden bands. 7 Then one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden bowls full of the wrath of God who lives forever and ever. 8 The temple of God and from His power, and no one was able to enter the temple till the seven plagues of the seven angels were completed 16 Then I heard a loud voice from the temple saying to the seven angels, “Go and pour out the bowls of the wrath of God on earth

The Answered Prayer

12 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; an greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. 13 And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.

The Father Revealed

7 “If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.” 6 Phillip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us.” 9 Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Phillip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say. ‘Show us the Father’? 10 Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works. 11 Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in me, or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves.

The Way, the Truth, and the Life

14 “Let your heart be troubled; you believe in God. believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house there are many mansions, if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. 4 And where I go you know, and the way you know.” 5 Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?” 6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

Seventh Seal: Prelude to the Seven Trumpets

8 When He opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour. 2 And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and to them were given seven trumpets. 3 Then another angel, having a golden censer, came and stood at the alter. He was given much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden alter which was before the throne. 4 And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, ascended before God from the angel’s hand. 5 Then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the alter, and threw it to the earth. And there were noises, thunderings, lightnings, and an earthquake. 6 So the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.

The Corrupt Church

18 “And to the angel of the church in Thyatira write, ‘Theses things says the Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of fire, and His feet like fine brass: 19 ” I know your works, love, service, faith, and your patience; and as for your works, the last are more than the first. 20 Nevertheless I have a few things against you, because you allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols. And I gave her time to repent of her sexual immorality, and she did not repent. 22 Indeed I will cast her into a sickbed, and those who commit adulatory with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds. 23 I will kill her children with death, and all the churches shall know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts. And I will give you to each one of you according to your works. 24 “Now to you I say, and to the rest in Thyatira, as many as do not have this doctrine, who have not known the depths of Satan, as they say, I will put on you no other burden. 25 But hold fast what you have till I come. 26 And he who overcomes, and keeps My works until the end, to him I will give power over the nations– 27 ‘He shall rule them with a rod of iron; They shall be dashed to pieces like the potter’s vessels’– as I also have received from My Father; 28 and I will give him the morning star. 29 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”

Mother’s Day Message!

Mother’s Day was on Friday of this past week. but my grandma told me that we celebrate it on Sunday. what I said in my blog post on Friday will be copied and pasted here. but I will be adding more meat to eat. I have got some good feed back. one thing I would like for everyone to do is to read this to your mothers who don’t own a computer or don’t have a social media profile. anything that I post I read to my grandma once it has been scheduled and published later on in the day. so again I highly suggest that you read this post and the other post if you haven’t had the chance too.

During holidays like today or any holiday its very hard for most of us who have lost our mothers. I was looking online to see if it could give me some answers on how to answer the question or to be able to talk to those who have lost a mother. I know several people who have lost a mother and I don’t know what its like. I don’t. but I know the feeling of losing someone close to you. while I was searching online for answers to that particular question all I could find was a link to a site that told me you could honor your mother in these ways. one of the ways I know of is visit your loved ones grave. We also need to understand is that our loved ones are not dead. but alive. like it says in John 3:16 16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. there are many other verses in the Bible. here is another one its from John 11:25-26 it says 25 Jesus said to her, “I am the ressurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they day: 26 and whoever lives by believing in me never die. Do you believe this?” and here is one more good one to give some comfort in your heart. it is from John 14:1-4 1 “DO not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God or “Believe in God”; believe also in me. 2 My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place fro you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you may be where I am. 4 You know the way to the place where I am going.”

There are many more verses in the Bible that I could share. but I will share more and more as the days go by. one off the many things you could do to honor your mothers memory is by doing something good to help someone. do it in their name. so you can basically do the following to honor your mother in her memory. 1. visit your mothers grave and place flowers. 2. help someone in need. 3. go to church.

So again before I close this great message. I would like to take the time to wish all of the mothers out there and all across the world a Happy Mother’s Day! Mother’s are a blessing and deserve to be honored. So today on this special day for all of the mother’s out there I will be sharing three verse’s from the Bible.

“Let your father and mother be glad; let her who bore you rejoice.” Proverbs 23:22-25

“Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: ‘Many woman have done excellently, but you surpass them all.” Proverbs 31:28-31

“Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.” Proverbs 31:25-28

I might as well add another verse from the Bible.

“When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom eh loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son! Then saith he to the diciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.” John 19:26-27

Jesus’s unwavering love for his mother Mary set the standard for how children should honor our mothers.

You may not know this but one of the hardest things a mother could ever do was watch a Son give His life for our sins. if you don’t believe me well…..

it was not easy for Mary mother of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior watching her Son being crucified and being nailed to the cross.

May God Bless All of the Mother’s who do so much for their Families!

May God Bless Everyone and May God Bless Everyone and their Families!
