Michael Jackson Justice: In Search Of the Ark Part 2

God: Reconnect to Him

The Conspiracy against God is about "The Word", and the profaning of His Holy Name within us. Adam fell in the garden, breaking the direct connection to God. Jesus, the "last Adam" was a quickening Spirit, the Word made Flesh, and the only one with whom we can re-establish our relationship with God. Michael's story is still unfolding. He is the one who is, is not. But Jesus is the only name given under heaven by which we must be saved. Many are trying to rewrite HIStory. We were given a help to instruct us. Learn more "here".

In Search Of the Ark Part 2

The Throne Of Mercy

"Yea, before the day was I am he; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand: I will work, and who shall let it?

14 Thus saith the Lord, your redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; For your sake I have sent to Babylon, and have brought down all their nobles, and the Chaldeans, whose cry is in the ships."

Before I start on this part 2, I wanted to thank you all for giving your time to read this.  As I stated upon the beginning of part 1, I was nervous about putting this to paper.  I wasn’t sure, I wanted more scripture and I kept asking God to show me, through all of this.

Tonight I laid upon the couch in my living room after cleaning up from dinner.  As I laid there thinking upon the stress of this, and I thought to myself “I am not afraid of anything that may come of this – the only thing I fear is not doing what God wants me to do, or doing something He DOESN’T want me to do”.

Upon that thought, I asked Him in my heart if this was the time.  I closed my eyes and I thought of the house.  I thought about Jesus and I realized how much, how very much he endured for us.  I thought about the times he went into Egypt, the going into Babylon, why the Ark had to be built and the picture was given to me of the order of how this was to be done and the house built.  I don’t understand it all.  It was then that tears sprang to my eyes.

Later in the bedroom I was getting my back rubbed by my husband and I again thought about the house.  I thought about the house in the dream I had about the rapture.  I told the story here in parable in August of 2010.  I explained the dream here in February of 2011.  The dream itself took place in the summer of 1980 when I was fifteen or sixteen (not sure of the month I had the dream).

There was much that stood out in that dream.  It was incredible.  Seeing heaven and experiencing other living things there was in itself indescribable.  The other things however, seemingly minute details now hold their own significance; such as the indecision in pulling the cord:  was it time?  Was I the one?  Was I worthy?

The other elements were the people in the crowds of the fairgrounds who disappeared in pockets at a time until only myself and the stalking men in cloaks were left on the grounds.  This now reminds me of the “consuming” of the “iniquity” within us.

Most notable now as I laid on the bed with my eyes closed, the memory of finding the stairway that led back down into my house, the “sanctuary” only to turn and find that one of the men in cloaks was now in my house right behind me. 

As I backed away, something touched my forehead and I jumped, jerking my head upward to see that golden string, the cord hanging from the chandelier.  After my indecision (was it time? Was I the one to pull it?) I reached up and pulled with all my strength.  The ceiling fell away and rolled back like a sardine can and brilliant, powerful light engulfed us. 

I opened my eyes on the bed and again tears came.  Now I knew what this meant.  And this Bible verse from part 1 is what came to mind after reviewing that decades-old dream:

The Ark of the Covenant was not present in the second temple.  So, where was it?

Remember what Paul told us in Hebrews 9 –

"For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:"

- But into heaven itself, to appear in the presence of God for us.  The Ark of the Covenant was in Christ himself. 

On Monday, December 1, 2014 I had ended the article “Last Days Part 3 – A Stirring From the Deep” with these couple of paragraphs:

Not the vessel – but the bare grain.

When the prophets said the battle was already won, believe it.  There is a reason why the Ark of the Covenant cannot be found.  It is not buried underneath a temple or in a cavern.

"For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:"

There was a woman who used to call me in the early days of the news of his death.  When I told her that he was still alive, she hesitated for a long minute before she spit out “No . . . No, he’s gone”.  In her last conversation with me, she asked me if I knew where he was.

Sanctuary – Holiest of All
Just a Figure of the True

"Then verily the first covenant had also ordinances of divine service, and a worldly sanctuary.   2. For there was a tabernacle made; the first, wherein was the candlestick, and the table, and the shewbread; which is called the sanctuary.

3. And after the second veil, the tabernacle which is called the Holiest of all;  4. Which had the golden censer, and the ark of the covenant overlaid round about with gold, wherein was the golden pot that had manna, and Aaron's rod that budded, and the tables of the covenant;

5. And over it the cherubims of glory shadowing the mercyseat; of which we cannot now speak particularly."

The first covenant had a worldly sanctuary.  The table and the shewbread and the candlestick which was called the sanctuary, was the first tabernacle.  Then there was a second veil where the “Holiest of all” was called the “tabernacle” containing the golden censer, Aaron’s rod and the “tables of the covenant”.

Remember the description of the table that held the “shewbread” matched (almost) the detail on the Ark of the Covenant from part 1:

Details on the Ark of the Covenant, in the “Tabernacle” or “Holiest of all”:

"And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them.   9. According to all that I shew thee, after the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all the instruments thereof, even so shall ye make it.

10. And they shall make an ark of shittim wood: two cubits and a half shall be the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof.   11. And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, within and without shalt thou overlay it, and shalt make upon it a crown of gold round about.

12. And thou shalt cast four rings of gold for it, and put them in the four corners thereof; and two rings shall be in the one side of it, and two rings in the other side of it.   13. And thou shalt make staves of shittim wood, and overlay them with gold.

14. And thou shalt put the staves into the rings by the sides of the ark, that the ark may be borne with them.   15. The staves shall be in the rings of the ark: they shall not be taken from it."

God said to make a sanctuary “after the pattern of the tabernacle.  Details on the Table for the shewbread which is in the “sanctuary” or the “holy place”:

"Thou shalt also make a table of shittim wood: two cubits shall be the length thereof, and a cubit the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof.   24. And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, and make thereto a crown of gold round about.

25. And thou shalt make unto it a border of an hand breadth round about, and thou shalt make a golden crown to the border thereof round about.   26. And thou shalt make for it four rings of gold, and put the rings in the four corners that are on the four feet thereof.

27. Over against the border shall the rings be for places of the staves to bear the table.   28. And thou shalt make the staves of shittim wood, and overlay them with gold, that the table may be borne with them."

The shewbread and God’s instructions for them is found in Leviticus 24.

"And thou shalt take fine flour, and bake twelve cakes thereof: two tenth deals shall be in one cake.   6. And thou shalt set them in two rows, six on a row, upon the pure table before the Lord.

7. And thou shalt put pure frankincense upon each row, that it may be on the bread for a memorial, even an offering made by fire unto the Lord.   8. Every sabbath he shall set it in order before the Lord continually, being taken from the children of Israel by an everlasting covenant."

We know this is the same because Exodus 25:30 describes the shewbread as being placed on the table “before me alway”.

"And thou shalt set upon the table shewbread before me alway."

There are twelve “cakes” for “a memorial” – twelve tribes of Israel.  It is to be set before the Lord “continually” – “alway”, in the “sanctuary” upon the table bordered with a crown as is the Ark of the Covenant.

The table of “shewbread” is in the “holy place” which is called the sanctuary.

The “Ark of the Covenant” is in the “Holiest of all” which is called the tabernacle.

What does it say about the “sanctuary” in the end times?

Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of the sanctuary was cast down."

And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate."

Jesus describes the polluted "sanctuary" in two different terms in Matthew and Mark, referencing the prophecies of Daniel:

"When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)"

"But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:"

Ezekiel also reveals something about the sanctuary being “cut off”.  It is here that we find the detail in the completion of the new temple.  It is here also we find the explanation of many things concerning the Prince of the Covenant.

"The posts of the temple were squared, and the face of the sanctuary; the appearance of the one as the appearance of the other.   22. The altar of wood was three cubits high, and the length thereof two cubits; and the corners thereof, and the length thereof, and the walls thereof, were of wood: and he said unto me, This is the table that is before the Lord.

23. And the temple and the sanctuary had two doors."

The posts of the temple were squared and the face of the sanctuary – “the appearance of one as the appearance of the other” – like the crown around the Ark and the crown around the shewbread table.  The altar was of wood and the Lord said “this is the table that is before the Lord”.  The altar here which is the “table that is before the Lord” is made of wood.  The table of the “shewbread” in Exodus 25:29-30 that is “before the Lord alway” is shittim wood encased in pure gold.

Before that, in Ezekiel 41:5-7 we find another familiar description.  If you cannot see this, I post a reminder to you:

"After he measured the wall of the house, six cubits; and the breadth of every side chamber, four cubits, round about the house on every side.   6. And the side chambers were three, one over another, and thirty in order; and they entered into the wall which was of the house for the side chambers round about, that they might have hold, but they had not hold in the wall of the house.

7. And there was an enlarging, and a winding about still upward to the side chambers: for the winding about of the house went still upward round about the house: therefore the breadth of the house was still upward, and so increased from the lowest chamber to the highest by the midst."

The side chambers entered into the wall of the house.  There was a “winding about” that went “upward” round about the house, “about the house on every side”.  The breadth of the house increased from the lowest chamber to the highest.  But look at what verse six says there.  These chambers “entered into the wall” of the house “that they might have hold” . . . but “they had not hold in the wall of the house”.

Your Clue:

They had not hold of the wall of the house.  Remember what was set down in the Jordan to stop up the waters so they could cross on dry ground (Joshua 3)?  The Ark of the Covenant carried by the priests.

In that same chapter of Ezekiel, verses 9-12 further describes that picture you are seeing – these “chambers without” the wall and “the chambers within”.

"The thickness of the wall, which was for the side chamber without, was five cubits: and that which was left was the place of the side chambers that were within.   10. And between the chambers was the wideness of twenty cubits round about the house on every side.

11. And the doors of the side chambers were toward the place that was left, one door toward the north, and another door toward the south: and the breadth of the place that was left was five cubits round about.   12. Now the building that was before the separate place at the end toward the west was seventy cubits broad; and the wall of the building was five cubits thick round about, and the length thereof ninety cubits."

This is where the “separate place” is first mentioned.  The chambers without the wall and the chambers within the wall – you know what this describes.  Between the chambers was the wideness – about the house on every side.

The doors of the side chambers were toward the place that was left (the chambers within).  One door toward the north, and one to the south.  Next describes “the building that was before the separate place” which is at the end toward the west.

In Ezekiel 42 they again refer to the "the separate place".  In verse 14 it mentions that the “separate place” is toward the east:

"Also the breadth of the face of the house, and of the separate place toward the east, an hundred cubits."

The face of the house and the “separate place” toward the east both are a hundred cubits.  2 Chronicles 3 1-13 describes the building of the house of the Lord by Solomon, and describes “the most Holy House” where the two Cherubims stood watch over the Ark.  Six hundred talents of gold were used to overlay the Most Holy House, and threescore cubits was the measurement of the house (after the first measurement) and by width twenty cubits. 

Ezekiel 42 describes the “separate place” that is mentioned in chapter 41 of that book:

He measured it by the four sides: it had a wall round about, five hundred reeds long, and five hundred broad, to make a separation between the sanctuary and the profane place."

These describe the measuring of a temple, but there are some peculiar features being mentioned in both chapters.  That is the description of the thickness of the wall in which there are chambers that were "over against the holy place", and the "separate place" which was before the sanctuary.  It also for the first time mentions “the profane place”.  Remember in Ezekiel 25, we learn who allows the “profaning”:

"Speak unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will profane my sanctuary, the excellency of your strength, the desire of your eyes, and that which your soul pitieth; and your sons and your daughters whom ye have left shall fall by the sword."

The desire of their eyes is that which they sought to have.  He calls it the “excellency of their strength” (sanctuary of strength) . . . that which their soul pitieth; who was that?  Did not the Lord tell them in Zechariah 12:10 they would mourn for him whom they have pierced?  John 19:37 also mentions this. 

Mantra of Sorcerers

Did the Lord also tell them that the “women” would be weeping for Tammuz in Ezekiel 8:14?  Ezekiel had to “dig down in the wall” to find the door wherein the rooms where the abominations took place in Ezekiel 8.  Both times the gate or the chamber is toward the north, yet the men twenty and five in verse 11 which were beyond the door seen through the hole in the wall were looking toward the east, toward the sun.  This is the profane place, separate from the sanctuary in Ezekiel chapters 41 and 42.

In chapter 43 it gets interesting.  It starts with verse 1:

"Afterward he brought me to the gate, even the gate that looketh toward the east:   2. And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east: and his voice was like a noise of many waters: and the earth shined with his glory.

3. And it was according to the appearance of the vision which I saw, even according to the vision that I saw when I came to destroy the city: and the visions were like the vision that I saw by the river Chebar; and I fell upon my face.   4. And the glory of the Lord came into the house by the way of the gate whose prospect is toward the east.   5. So the spirit took me up, and brought me into the inner court; and, behold, the glory of the Lord filled the house."

Who destroys the city?  “The people of the Prince” in Daniel 9:26 (Remember Joshua 6, the walls came down, the city destroyed).   Also Isaiah 2:10 reveals the breaking down of the “houses” to “fortify the wall.

In Haggai 2, The Lord again tells Haggai to inform Zerubbabel of the glory God will bring to this house they are building, which “house at that time matched not the glory of the first house.

"For thus saith the Lord of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land;   7. And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the Lord of hosts.

8. The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the Lord of hosts.   9. The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the Lord of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the Lord of hosts."

This is the same book and chapter in which the Lord tells Zerubbabel through Haggai to distinguish between “CLEAN” and “UNCLEAN” works from the hands that are building this temple.

Reading Ezekiel 43, we find instruction from the Lord to Ezekiel of a “house” filled with the Glory of the Lord.  The Lord tells Ezekiel that the children of Israel will no longer defile his house; they will no longer place their thresholds by His threshold, nor their posts by His posts and the wall between them and the Lord.  The Lord has consumed them, verses 6-8.

In verses 9-12 same chapter in Ezekiel, the Lord reveals that the “law of the house” will be re-established.  Ezekiel is told the children of Israel will be shown the “pattern” and the “form” of the house if they are repentant of their abominations.

"And if they be ashamed of all that they have done, shew them the form of the house, and the fashion thereof, and the goings out thereof, and the comings in thereof, and all the forms thereof, and all the ordinances thereof, and all the forms thereof, and all the laws thereof: and write it in their sight, that they may keep the whole form thereof, and all the ordinances thereof, and do them.

12 This is the law of the house; Upon the top of the mountain the whole limit thereof round about shall be most holy. Behold, this is the law of the house."

This is the “law of the house”.  If they are repentant of what they have done (defiling the house, defiling His name), they then can be shown the “form of the house”, and “write it in their sight, that they may keep the whole form”.

This is the law.  Are their eyes seeing this?  They did not KEEP the law of the house – the WHOLE FORM.

The end times servant:

"Behold, my servant shall deal prudently, he shall be exalted and extolled, and be very high.   14. As many were astonied at thee; his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men:

15. So shall he sprinkle many nations; the kings shall shut their mouths at him: for that which had not been told them shall they see; and that which they had not heard shall they consider."

Even though Ezekiel expresses some seemingly tedious detail concerning the “house of the Lord”, you recognize not only familiar patterns with descriptions and certain measurements, but you also notice deviations that were made in various elements within it.

In Ezekiel 41:7 we learn that the description of “the house” portrays a structure that gets wider as you ascend it.

"And there was an enlarging, and a winding about still upward to the side chambers: for the winding about of the house went still upward round about the house: therefore the breadth of the house was still upward, and so increased from the lowest chamber to the highest by the midst."

In Ezekiel 42 it describes these upper chambers as “shorter” but the “galleries” were higher than the lower and middle.  It describes they did not have pillars as those of the courts, which resulted in a building that was “straitened more than the lowest and middle from the ground”.  

"Now the upper chambers were shorter: for the galleries were higher than these, than the lower, and than the middlemost of the building.   6. For they were in three stories, but had not pillars as the pillars of the courts: therefore the building was straitened more than the lowest and the middlemost from the ground."

See “Making Straight Every Crooked Way”.  Is the Spirit of the Lord straightened?

Now for the “separate” place . . . it is for the Prince:

"Then he brought me back the way of the gate of the outward sanctuary which looketh toward the east; and it was shut.   2. Then said the Lord unto me; This gate shall be shut, it shall not be opened, and no man shall enter in by it; because the Lord, the God of Israel, hath entered in by it, therefore it shall be shut.

3. It is for the prince; the prince, he shall sit in it to eat bread before the Lord; he shall enter by the way of the porch of that gate, and shall go out by the way of the same."

This part of Ezekiel is the hardest to get through because of all the measurements and elements which appear in other various parts of the Bible for clarification.  Ezekiel tells the story of the temple, the sanctuary and the most holy place.  It tells the story before, during and after the profaning of the sanctuary.

"Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot?   14. And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed."

In Ezekiel chapters 41 through 45 we see the “house of the Lord”, and we see the introduction of the Prince in chapter 44 who enters this same house, even though a profaned places exists within it.  We know this is not the vessel Jesus inhabited because his “vessel” was never profaned.  Jesus was conceived of the Holy Ghost.  Jesus was never corrupted and his sanctuary was never defiled because Jesus was “the Word made flesh”, John 1:14.  He was the law of the house made flesh; the “Word” which was in the beginning with God and was God, John 1:1.

The story of Paul and his conversion (See “The road to Damascus”) in Acts 9 taught us that Jesus could chose vessels to “bear his name”.  Jesus would also award the one who overcomes, would rule the nations with a rod of iron, he would give this one “the morning star” as his Father gave him (Revelation 2:26-28) and he who overcomes will sit with Jesus in his throne as Jesus sat with his Father (Revelations 3:21).

Where does Jesus sit?  Where is God’s throne and where is Jesus sitting with him?

The Mercy Seat

The Water and the Blood - Credit Nancy Cupp

But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God's throne:"

Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need."

"And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.   3. And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald."

And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail."

Numbers, where the Ark of His Testimony bears the seat of Mercy as in Revelation 11:19 above -

And when Moses was gone into the tabernacle of the congregation to speak with him, then he heard the voice of one speaking unto him from off the mercy seat that was upon the ark of testimony, from between the two cherubims: and he spake unto him."

The Ark of the Testimony is the Ark of the Covenant.

The Ark protected Noah, and Moses and Joshua and the children of Israel, then Ark of the Covenant protects – the Covenant.

The Covenant is the “testimony I shall give you” said the Lord to Moses. 

The “Testimony” is the “law of the House” of the Lord.  The “Law” is the “Word” of God, which Jesus was, made flesh.

If the “Ark” protects the “Covenant” which is the “Testimony” which is the “Law” (which was put in the side of the Ark as a testimony against them), and the “Law” flowed from the “side” of Jesus as he was pierced on the cross; then the prince of the Covenant is also protected by “the Ark”.

When the “man child was caught up to God and to his throne” in Revelation 12:5, it was the same “throne” on which Jesus sat with his Father in heaven; and that which Jesus told John he would place he who overcomes.

This not only means that the “man child” is the Prince of the Covenant, it also means that the throne, which Jesus sat called the throne of grace, is the Mercy Seat.

The Prince of the Covenant meets with God in the “separate” place which faces east.  No man comes in or out of the east gate which remains shut, because God enters there and it is for the prince.

The mercyseat which Paul could not at that time “speak particularly” –

"And after the second veil, the tabernacle which is called the Holiest of all;   4. Which had the golden censer, and the ark of the covenant overlaid round about with gold, wherein was the golden pot that had manna, and Aaron's rod that budded, and the tables of the covenant;

5. And over it the cherubims of glory shadowing the mercyseat; of which we cannot now speak particularly."

Do you now understand why the abomination of desolation must be placed?

"And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate."

"And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate."

"And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days."

Do you now understand why there is a “profane place” in the house of God separate from the sanctuary?

If you understood the revelation to Zechariah about the flying roll and the curse that goes forth over the earth to consume the house of the liar and the thief, then you should understand the placing of the abomination and the role of the mercy seat in all of this.

"And he said unto me, What seest thou? And I answered, I see a flying roll; the length thereof is twenty cubits, and the breadth thereof ten cubits.   3. Then said he unto me, This is the curse that goeth forth over the face of the whole earth: for every one that stealeth shall be cut off as on this side according to it; and every one that sweareth shall be cut off as on that side according to it.

4 I will bring it forth, saith the Lord of hosts, and it shall enter into the house of the thief, and into the house of him that sweareth falsely by my name: and it shall remain in the midst of his house, and shall consume it with the timber thereof and the stones thereof."

In Galatians 3:13, “Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse FOR us . . .”  the “curse” will be brought forth in the house of the theif and liar to CONSUME IT (Consummation) - And you understand the ephah with the woman called wickedness in the midst of it, which is taken to the land of Shinar (Babylon) to build it a house.

"And, behold, there was lifted up a talent of lead: and this is a woman that sitteth in the midst of the ephah.   8. And he said, This is wickedness. And he cast it into the midst of the ephah; and he cast the weight of lead upon the mouth thereof.

9. Then lifted I up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came out two women, and the wind was in their wings; for they had wings like the wings of a stork: and they lifted up the ephah between the earth and the heaven.

10. Then said I to the angel that talked with me, Whither do these bear the ephah?   11. And he said unto me, To build it an house in the land of Shinar: and it shall be established, and set there upon her own base."

These are within the temple that Zerubbabel's hands which laid the foundation thereof, shall also finish.

Zerubbabel - Michelangelo

The second beast -

"5. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name."

The second beast, under the image of the first will cause all . . . it says "CAUSETH ALL" small and great, rich, poor, free and bond to receive a mark.  CAUSETH ALL.  Those who will not worship the beast he will cause to be killed.

9. And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,   10. The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:"

But it says everyone will receive a mark in Revelation 13, doesn’t it?  Clarification comes:

The First Beast -

"And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.   7. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.

8. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.   9. If any man have an ear, let him hear.   10. He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints."

He opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, his name and his tabernacle.  He is allowed to make war with the saints and to overcome them.  Those who worship him are NOT in the book of life of the lamb.  We are warned that if we leadeth into captivity we will go into captivity - that is directed toward those who falsely lead people into believing they will be raptured, or that the "beast" is the millennial Christ on earth; or that the "government of God" will be built in preparation for Christ by any chosen organization.  This is a SPIRITUAL EVENT, not a fleshly one.

Who does not receive a mark of the beast?  The elect.  The tribulation does not begin, nor the day of wrath until the elect of God are sealed:

"And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,   3. Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads."

"And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads.   2. And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps:

3. And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth.   4. These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb."

It says the beast will cause all to receive a mark.  What of those that do not worship the beast?  Will they receive one anyway and if they do, how do they overcome it?

There is the redeemer who sends to Babylon for our sakes, to take down their nobles in Isaiah 43:14.  The Prince of the Covenant is broken, his sanctuary is polluted, but in Daniel 8:14 it is cleansed after the two thousand, three hundred days.

The overspreading of abominations, through a house which although has a profane place, also has the separate place which only the “Prince” can go in and out of the east gate, where God enters.

He is caught up to God and to his throne.  He is the strength which withholds the devil from taking the vessel (Jude 1:9).  The man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, and he is destroyed with the brightness of his coming (2 Thessalonians 2:2-6).

The Body of Moses?
The Flying Roll, the Ephah (gold and silver is mine)
The "ladder", and the body

He is the angel that goes before us (Exodus 23:20) to keep us in the way.  Abraham's faith was accounted to him for righteousness (Romans 4:3-13).  Whosoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved (Romans 10:13).

The elect may have been set aside by God, but this is how the multitude is saved.

Between the sixth and the seventh trumpets – This occurs after the witnesses are brought back from the dead:

"And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.   13. And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven."

These are the remnant of the people who will come out of the tribulation, which John saw with washed robes by the blood of the lamb.

"9. After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;

13. And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?   14. And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

15. Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.   16. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.   17. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes."

And the city of the New Jerusalem?  It is a hundred and forty and four cubits; the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.

"And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.

17. And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel."

Noah, perfect in his generations was protected from the waters.

The temple of the captain of Our salvation began with the seed of Abraham; he that withheld nothing back from God, including the life of his son whom he loved.

Isaac, the son whom was given to the Lord by Abraham began the first fruit.  His son Jacob became Israel, and his twelve sons the children of.

Many of them fell but a remnant would be saved.  God left them for 400 years in Egypt, then called Moses to lead them out of their bondage.

Moses and Aaron used a rod which through God would symbolize our redeemer as the “rod” which turns into a serpent, which ate the other serpents before turning back into the rod.

The Holy One of Israel would also be depicted as the staff held up in the wilderness with the brass serpent on it – so that those “bitten by the serpent” would be healed if they looked upon the serpent on the staff.

It was Moses would begin putting many of the vessels of the tabernacle together, who first built the Ark for the Covenant, with the mercy seat above it.

Solomon turned the tabernacle and the sanctuary into a temple and then proceeded to defile it with the gods of his wives.

The temple was ransacked and destroyed when Nebuchadnezzar invaded and destroyed the temple, but the Ark of the Covenant is not mentioned among the vessels taken, nor is it mentioned upon the return of the vessels to Jerusalem after the seventy year exile of the nobles of Israel and Judah.

Zerubbabel is given charge to build the foundation of the house of the Lord, and the glory of the house is promised while a warning is given to the Jews for remembrance – that the hands unclean would also produce an unclean offering.

Jesus, the temple of his body, and his sanctuary were unspoiled, pure, full of grace and truth.  He was the word made flesh.  He was God dwelling among us.

He was the Ark of the Covenant;  He was in his Father and the Father was in Him.

It was his blood which was needed to restore the Word of God in us.

He was sent to Babylon for our sake, being made a curse for us (over the whole earth) in a “house” with a separate place and the “profane place”; a place where God enters and no man can enter but is for the Prince. 

He will consume the filthiness out of us.  He will destroy the houses of the liar and the thief.  He will cleanse the iniquity out of the land in one day.  The brightness of his coming will destroy the vessel of the son of perdition who will cause the overspreading of abominations.

Take heart that if you are faithful to Christ, and call upon the name of Jesus, believe on his name, repent to God in his name and give Him everything, you will be restored, not destroyed.

Jesus became sin for us.  He became the “curse” for us.  He became the temple made without hands before the temple made with hands was utilized.  His suffering was not only physical on the cross, he also suffered to bring us out of bondage.

Jesus “turned the tables” in the temple.  He drove out the merchants, the cheats and the liars.  He “cleansed” the temple.  He was “sent to Babylon” for our sakes, protected in an Ark, impenetrable because Zerubbabel did as the Lord instructed; and Zechariah was faithful and was given the truth.

That same Spirit of the Lord has inhabited another vessel, one that includes the “profane place” in the house which Spirit was taken out of the way that evil be revealed.

The Mercy Seat holds the seed, the Ark of the Covenant holds the Book of the Law, neither which was in danger.

What they attempted to do in Jude 1:9 and in the end days has been done to them. 

"Thou shouldest not have entered into the gate of my people in the day of their calamity; yea, thou shouldest not have looked on their affliction in the day of their calamity, nor have laid hands on their substance in the day of their calamity;

14. Neither shouldest thou have stood in the crossway, to cut off those of his that did escape; neither shouldest thou have delivered up those of his that did remain in the day of distress.   15. For the day of the Lord is near upon all the heathen: as thou hast done, it shall be done unto thee: thy reward shall return upon thine own head."

And now that the devil knows it, he also knows he has a short time.

He entered the sanctuary, where the table of shewbread was before the Lord.  He sought to devour the soul of the man child who was caught up to God and to his throne; the Mercy Seat, which is in heaven itself.

There is a war in heaven when Michael and his angels fight the dragon and his angels and they are cast back to the earth, never to enter the realm again.  It is then woe be unto the earth and its inhabitants, but fear not.  Jesus has already saved you if you have trusted in him.  Be strong and resist temptation and be faithful to the end.

Go not after the son of perdition whom Jesus said would come first.  Go not after the material, nor after the flesh.  Remember when he stands in the “holy place” (the sanctuary) where he ought not.

"And in mercy shall the throne be established: and he shall sit upon it in truth in the tabernacle of David, judging, and seeking judgment, and hasting righteousness."

"Look upon Zion, the city of our solemnities: thine eyes shall see Jerusalem a quiet habitation, a tabernacle that shall not be taken down; not one of the stakes thereof shall ever be removed, neither shall any of the cords thereof be broken."

He suffered this for you.  Trust in His Word and fall not for the lie.  The brightness of his coming will come from the throne of mercy on which he sits.
