Begin study:

 

 

Earlier we studied the
incense which was added to the golden alter (of incense), representing the
prayers of believers offered to God. And from those prayers God presented grace,
although judgments, to the world for the repentance of humanity back to truth
and away from evil.

Through this point, some
turned to God, but most continued in their rejection.

And now we have a change
in approach in Gods policy toward evil humanity.  The prayers for mercy, and
ending the evil toward believers and such, is
going to come to an end.

The time for mercy has
now passed. Many warnings have been
issued and all have been rejected.

The voice came from the
four horns on the alter, not
from the alter itself.

Remember that the coals
come from the brazen alter, the first alter, which represents the work of
Christ in accomplishing our salvation, by his sacrifice on the Cross.

The coals are taken from
the brazen alter, to the golden alter of incense, and placed in that second
alter, which in turn has incense placed into the burning coals, representing the
prayers offered to God, through the work of Christ.  The smoke rises up to God (symbolically),
representing that this is an acceptable approach to God (the Father), because
it is accomplished through Christ’s work, and not from mans works.

The four horns represent
the totality of Gods plan and policy.
One can lay hold of any of the horns from any
direction, so long as it is through Christ, but one cannot approach God from
any other method, especially not from ones own plan.

And now the totality of
Gods plan speaks.

Christ has done His work.  People have accepted that work through their
belief. Prayers have been offered in
accordance with Gods policy. All of that
has been answered by means of grace, patience and mercy throughout many millennia
of history.

And now, that door is
closed.

Those who were going to
believe in Christ, have done so.  Those who have rejected Christ will continue
to reject. Life is now going to get
really ugly … really ugly.

 

 

End of study

 

 

 




 

Study [by instruction],

to show thyself approved [spiritually mature]

unto God,

a workman [student]

that need not be ashamed [ignorant],

rightly dividing [learning, understanding, discerning]

the word of truth [Bible doctrine].

If you can dream and not make dreams your master,

If you can think and not let thoughts narrow your views,

If you can meet triumph with disaster equally,

If you can learn and see your full meaning and purpose in life,

Then you can believe in Christ, learn Bible doctrine, and grow far beyond the potential that God has prepared for you.

These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.

And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever.

To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.

The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.

But each person has to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.

Keep in the Word, Isa. 41:10.
