STUDY-2 REVELATIONS C.13, v.13… ‘…HE MAKETH FIRE COME DOWN FROM HEAVEN…’ [one]…
SPECIAL REFERENCE NOTE: The truth of the origin of the ‘fire from heaven’ is found in this Christian Holy Bible Scripture verse…. Amos C.4, v.11… I have overthrown some of you, as God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah, and ye were as a firebrand plucked out of the burning: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the Lord. The key note in the verse is ‘overthrown some of you’. Also as “I have” (prophet) “as God”. The ‘some of you’ shows the present truth of the signs and wonders.
READ: Isaiah C.13, v.19-20… And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees’ excellency, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah. It shall never be inhabited, neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation: neither shall the Arabian [nomad sinners] pitch tent there; neither shall the shepherds make their fold there.
The second parable / prophecy shows the total destruction inclusive of all in the kingdom (children of hell), as opposed to the first parable / prophecy listed which is destruction (instant death) of parts (peoples opposing) of the kingdom – the Whore of Babylon , which shows as a preemptive advertisement of judgment, and as well the mystery of God and His works.
This Study on the line by line Scriptures concerning the False prophet, ‘…he maketh fire come down from heaven…’ will be separated into four parts.
I. Part One ….. Part One, here, shall show the original definition of “Fire from Heaven’. In the beginning, ‘fire from Heaven’ from God began as the punishment of ‘Fire and Brimstone’ which rained down from Heaven upon Sodom and Gomorrah (the two cities full of wickedness), destroying, killing, all sinners in the two cities. Remarkably, recently modern science produced factual proof at these two former cities of this occurrence, quite as modern day Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan that were destroyed by the Atom Bomb in World War Two.
II. Part Two ….. Part Two shall show ‘fire from Heaven’ and causes of God for this – as His wrath against sinners. …..NOTE: The fire of God is also a baptism of Christians. Being baptized in fire is then the authority of judgment by Christians over others by that very power of the Holy Spirit within them. It is also a baptism of those Christians that are in the midst of the very judgments against sinners, being saved, as ‘fire from Heaven’ from God as punishment, being a sort of ‘on – the – job – training’ scenario. This is obviously seen in the two earthquakes on Reverend Martin L. King’s birthday as ‘fire from Heaven’, yet the innocent were spared, as was here mentioned in Studies in the ‘lying wonders’ verses.
SEE: Matthew C.3, v.11-12… I [John] indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he [Jesus] that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he [Jesus] shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire: Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he [Jesus] will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.
III. Part Three…. Part three, ‘fire from heaven’, actually being through God’s Prophet and not devils, will show that ‘fire from Heaven’ is of God and through His prophet, the King-Prophet of Israel. It is/was not of Satan’s or the False Prophet’s power ~ the delusion of lies and deceit that Satan and his followers have published or allowed alluded to.
IV. Part Four…. Part Four, going further, shows various fire and wrath of God as his indignation and punishment against the City of the Whore of Babylon, the Beast and False Prophet, and against Satan and his followers.
NOTE: Note, that, of punishment from God – the thoughts in darkness of past days have been prostrated to the truth ( II Corinthians C.10, v.5… Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to obedience of Christ…). In recent time past, thoughts throughout the World allowed and spread by the ignorance of sinners and evil leaders, were that the World would end as left over to the Devil and devils.
==== FIRE FROM HEAVEN…. SODOM AND GOMORRAH….
28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.
30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.
23 The sun was risen upon the earth when Lot entered into Zoar.
24 Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven;
25 And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.
5 They that did feed delicately are desolate in the streets: they that were brought up in scarlet embrace dunghills.
6 For the punishment of the iniquity of the daughter of my people is greater than the punishment of the sin of Sodom, that was overthrown as in a moment, and no hands stayed on her.
21 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord God: every man’s sword shall be against his brother.
22 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.
23 Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the Lord.
10 I have sent among you the pestilence after the manner of Egypt: your young men have I slain with the sword, and have taken away your horses; and I have made the stink of your camps to come up unto your nostrils: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD.
11 I have overthrown some of you, as God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah, and ye were as a firebrand plucked out of the burning: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the Lord.
12 Therefore thus will I do unto thee, O Israel: and because I will do this unto thee, prepare to meet thy God, O Israel.
