The "Ark" and the "Archangel"
The "Sword" (Word)
and the Shield (The Ark)
Interesting in my own studies, God lead me through scripture: "What is the Book of the Law"? It's different than the Ten Commandments even though the Book of the law consists of them. It's deeper than scrolls full of do's and dont' - SEE:
Deuteronomy 31:26 - "Take this book of the law, and put it in the side of the ark of the covenant of the Lord your God, that it may be there for a witness against thee."
Where was Jesus pierced?
John 19:34 - "But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water."
What are two of the three witnesses IN the earth that agree as one?
1 John 5:8 - "And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one."
The "Book of the Law" is not Jewish or Oral law . . . it is inside us, right where Jesus said the Kingdom of God is:
Luke 17:21 - "Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you."
God dwells not in temples made with hands:
Acts 17:24 - "God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;"
Now read the book of Daniel again as Jesus suggested in Matthew 24:15 - "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:)"
The temple with the abomination is NOT A BUILDING.
Jesus was tempted by the devil in the wilderness. In Luke 4:5-7, He offers Jesus all the kingdoms of the world if Jesus will worship him. He already has the things of this world. The devil is not after a temple BUILDING. He's after the kingdom of God - as the Lord revealed in Isaiah 14:
Isaiah 14:12-14 - "12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! 13. For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: 14. I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High."
The devil wants the THRONE of God where Jesus now sits: Where the "morning star" is.
What did Jesus tell us is the ONLY WAY to the Father?
John 14:6 - "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
This is his last chance to get to the kingdom.
See The book of Jude 1:9 - It has been attempted before:
Jude 1:9 - "Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee."
Revealed is he who withholds, the Ark of the Covenant, the "ARCH-Angel", the only Archangel named in the Bible.
Now you know what withholdeth . . . and he that letteth will let until he is taken out of the way 2 Thessalonians 2 - and that evil is revealed whom the Lord will consume with the Spirit of his mouth and destroy with the brightness of his coming.
He that is taken out of the way is is the man child "caught up to God and to his throne" before the dragon can devour him - Revelation 12:1-5.
Michael the Archangel fights the dragon and his angels - the "war in heaven".
Michael and Jesus are the same:
1 Thessalonians 4:16 - "For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:"
Michael and Jesus are the Same:
Daniel 12:1 - "And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book."
The Scripture of Truth - "There is none that hold with me in these things except Michael, your Prince . . . " - Daniel10:21
We are told these things for a reason. Jesus stresses understanding of the prophecies of Daniel. Daniel is told that Michael is with the Princes of Persia and he is "the only one" that holds with the angel who visited Daniel. Why was Daniel told this . . . was there a reason the world would question "Michael's" purpose. Because Michael is the sanctuary of strength that is polluted.
Jesus was "made to be sin who knew no sin" - 2 Corinthians 5:21
Jesus "redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us" - Galatians 3:13
Ezekiel 28 reveals the building the "temple" with the separate place" between the sanctuary and the profane place - Ezekiel 42:20
It is all there in scripture, NOT in man-interpreted concordances. Scripture interprets scripture. The Holy Ghost reveals where to find them and "teaches us all things".
It was revealed to me what the abomination is, whose vessel it would be entered into, and who the son of man is. Everything has to do with the Word of God within us - the ONE WORD that fulfills ALL THE LAW, which Christ Jesus was in the flesh when he was among us.
Read these scriptures and the rest of HIS story comes together in the scriptures. Once that WORD is revealed to you, you will know what it is they are trying to destroy in us, to "make themselves a name" in place of God's - since the building of the tower to heaven in Babel.
God bless you and get to work.
