God Our Saviour 
All glory to the Living God who revealed this mystery, the answers of which had been puzzling this writer for some years. 
I believe that it's only as a result of understanding the Covenant relationship of God to mankind through the Blood Sacrifice of the risen Lord Jesus Christ that the lid of this box of treasures has been removed and its magnificent and supernatural contents revealed. 
My dear brother and sister in the Lord, may He open your spiritual eyes to enable you to clearly see the path of progress that still lies before you. It is so wonderful when the Holy Spirit reveals these Truths a little at a time so that mere man can understand the Majesty of our Almighty Father, who, with the Spiritual being who we know as Lord Jesus Christ planned this from before the beginning of the world. 
Having just understood the meaning of the unpardonable sin, we move up to the next step of understanding, except that this is more like a staircase as so much that was unexplained now becomes clearer. 
Oh, the joy of studying the word under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, not attempting to make the word fit in with what one is trying to prove, but to use the sincere milk of the word. 
Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned: From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling; Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm. But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully; Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, 
(1 Timothy 1:5-9a)
Let's go to the wonderful word of God: 
Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God our Saviour, and Lord Jesus Christ, which is our hope; Unto Timothy, my own son in the faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord. 
(1 Timothy 1:1-2)
For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 
(1 Timothy 2:3-4)
We see here that God is our Saviour. Many believe that Lord Jesus Christ is our Saviour. Many also believe that God and Lord Jesus Christ are the same. For example that the Ancient of days is Lord Jesus. Let's try and clear these matters up. 
God alone is our Saviour. He saves us on the day of judgement, that day, deciding on our eternal future. 
Christ Jesus is our Covenant Representative. He is our Lord and our hope. If we come to God through Him (the Covenant that He made on our behalf), we have an Advocate, a mediator, that pleads our case because we are in the Lamb's book of life. In this way He is also our Saviour, in that we can come to God through Him: 
For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; 
(1 Timothy 2:5)
But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 
(1 Corinthians 15:57)
All others, when standing before God, have to plead their case themselves. 
Does this mean that all those souls who, when in their earthly bodies, were in other religions etc. are doomed? No, it just means that they have no Advocate and therefore it's oh, so much more difficult to be saved. Saved from what? The second death. 
At this stage you might think that you are reading about the ecumenical movement led by the Roman catholic church and the one worlders. Not at all, that movement is another of Satan's little conjuring tricks to catch the unwary, a red herring that has some of the trappings of the Truth. 
If you have any doubts as to the veracity of the above statements, let me ask you; what about the Old Covenant saints? they don't have an Advocate, or do they? 
Shall we look into this wonderful box and take the treasures out one by one? 
From reading part two of Heart of the Gospel we understand the conditions and implications of the Blood Covenant, not so? Without this understanding, much of the following treasure shall prove difficult to perceive as such. 
For example, the charismatics and some other churches preach that Jesus, after His crucifixion, was tempted and punished by Satan for three days and nights in hell before overcoming and being resurrected. Some also believe that they are little gods and that they could have replaced Jesus just as well on the cross. 
This goes to show lack of revelation and love of the truth, not so. 
They have committed the unpardonable sin. 
What gnashing of teeth when the truth of God's presence is revealed to them on that day. While I cannot pray for them, my heart is so heavy that they should wilfully choose the path to destruction. They shall never enter heaven. Like Esau, they might at some stage want to repent, but it shall not be in them to do so. 
Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord: Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled; Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright. For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears. For ye are not come unto the mount that might be touched, and that burned with fire, nor unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest, And the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words; which voice they that heard intreated that the word should not be spoken to them any more: (For they could not endure that which was commanded, And if so much as a beast touch the mountain, it shall be stoned, or thrust through with a dart: And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, I exceedingly fear and quake:) But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel. 
(Hebrews 12:14-24)
Let's go on with the blessings. 
God and Christ Jesus 
How do God and Christ Jesus differ; and how are they the same? Let's see, according to the knowledge that God and the Word have seen fit to show us, through the faith that we have and the revelation from the Holy Spirit. 
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. 
(John 1:1-5)
This seems confusing doesn't it? How can anyone be God and be with God? 
For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. 
(1 John 5:7)
This verse has been removed by Satan from the newer bible versions so it must be important. 
We see here that the three are one. While this clarifies matters somewhat it still leaves us humans unclear as to what the truth is. We now see through a glass darkly, but then face to face. From Scripture we believe that the Spiritual person who we know as Lord Jesus Christ was with God from before the foundation of the earth and that He made the earth. 
Moreover, the Word was not, as is Lucifer (Satan), a created being. We know also that in the Old Covenant Christ was sometimes called "The Angel of the LORD" or "mine Angel" (see Genesis 22:11-12, Exodus 23:20-23). 
Some claim that Christ Jesus is God, the Ancient of days, citing this text: 
I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire. A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened. I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the horn spake: I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame. 
(Daniel 7:9-11)
However, the person who promoted this theory wilfully refrained from quoting the next few verses. The answer is so obvious that it's silly to believe anything else. 
I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed. 
(Daniel 7:13-14)
Further, if the Person who we know as Christ Jesus is the Ancient of days - is God, the following passage becomes null and void and should be removed from the Bible. 
For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming. Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him. And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all. 
(1 Corinthians 15:22-28)
Okay, it's now clearer that God is the Ancient of days - Jehovah; and that Lord Jesus Christ is His only begotten Son; who, at rest, now sits at His right hand which is the Covenental position of honour and trust. 
Besides being a man (which He undoubtedly was), He is the Covenant connection between God on a Spiritual plane and mankind on a worldly one. The Son of man. 
The heavenly books.  
Going back to the two Daniel passages above, please also note, firstly, that there is more than one book. 
This is confirmed: 
And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. 
(Revelation 20:12)
We note here however that there is only one book of life. 
Secondly, we see that all nations and languages should serve Him. Does this mean Christians from all nations, or all nations? 
Thirdly, we see that He shall be given an everlasting kingdom. 
We have already seen that there is more than one spiritual book, but that there is only one book of life. 
If one carefully reads Revelation chapter twenty one, it shall be observed that it is the Lamb's book of life: 
And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life. 
(Revelation 21:27)
When is this book opened?
If we quickly reread Revelation 20:12 it would seem that they are all opened together, however let's look more carefully: 
And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. 
(Revelation 20:10-15)
Firstly we see that Satan is already cast into the lake of fire, so he can't accuse anyone anymore. 
Secondly, this is the great white throne judgement of God. This is that day
Thirdly, the book of life (the Lamb's book) was opened last. Does this mean that only the names and works of Christians shall be found in it? Does it mean that it was opened before the judgement of those in the other books was completed? Not according to the sincere milk of the word. 
From Revelation 21:27 we see that only those souls who are mentioned in the Lamb's book of life shall enter the New Jerusalem. 
What about Noah, Abraham, David, Jeremiah et al? 
Somehow they have to get their names included. 
And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; 
(Revelation 5:9)
This can only mean then that they are mentioned in one of the other books and will be judged by God at the great white throne judgement. If they are approved they shall be placed in the Lamb's book of life. 
Remembering that the only way in is through faith in Christ Jesus (the risen Christ), how do they get into that book? 
When are the souls of the peoples of the earth given this opportunity? 
When the books are opened and their contents declared. 
What is declared? 
Their works. 
He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God? 
(Micah 6:8)
This then can only mean that those who are not already recorded in the Lamb's book of life, but whose works are righteous are preached to and those who accept the risen Christ as their King shall have their names recorded in the Lamb's book of life at that time. 

Later on the Lamb's book shall be opened once again and the saints, those who are part of the bride, who reigned with Him for a thousand years, together with those whose names were added on that day shall be rewarded by having the right to enter the New Jerusalem. 
Is there confirmation of all of this? 
Let's see what the word says. 
From reading part two of Heart of the Gospel we understand that God made a Covenant with Adam and Eve when He gave them bloody skins to cover their nakedness. This was a Covenant of condemnation and still runs today. 
Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee. And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return. And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living. Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them. 
(Genesis 3:16-21)
The next Covenant was to Noah and it was the promise of the rainbow. For the first time the word Covenant is recorded. Remember, Noah built an altar (place of slaying) to God. He made a blood sacrifice. 
The next Covenant was that of Abraham, the Covenant that Abraham could participate in and which he agreed to, whose outer manifestation was circumcision. 
The next Covenant was that of Moses and the Children of Israel, the law. 
The last Covenant of God with man was the best, that of Christ Jesus; amongst others, nullification of the power of death, which was part of the curse given to Adam. 
Each new Covenant added to the previous one, but to enter into the Lamb's book of life everyone shall be given the opportunity to accept the Covenant that Jesus of Nazareth made with His Father on behalf of mankind. 
To accept Jesus Christ as Lord
Let's start with the time of the first Covenant. 
We see that unlike Abel, Cain was disobedient. Even here, blood was required to appease God's anger. Right from the start of this Covenant God required man to have fear and respect for His righteousness. 
We notice that even Eve could see the difference between Cain and Abel: 
And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew. 
(Genesis 4:25)
Genesis chapter five is the "book" of the generations of Adam. Why did God find it necessary to show us the names of certain people and not others? At one time I tried to show that they were the firstborn of each succeeding generation, but the word doesn't say so. God shows us enough to get us saved without complicating the matter with side issues. 
For example, when I was a new Christian and was witnessing to a young business partner called G, he asked the following question: 
"I've asked this to many people, including Pastors and "Reverends" and they cannot answer it. How did Adam's child Seth produce children if Adam and Eve were the first? Did he marry his sister? 
Even then the Holy Spirit was able to prompt me. 
"The Bible doesn't explain that, but if you believe that the Bible is the word of God, you will accept what it says. We are dealing with your belief in God, not your unbelief in the Bible. God didn't need to state who Seth's wife was because it has nothing to do with teaching us about our salvation - which is why the Bible is there." 
G was looking for an excuse to reject God, not so? 
This was borne out by a miracle that happened to him some months later, that he recognised and accepted as such, but despite this and other spiritual proofs that were shown to him, he is unchanged. God spoke to him, but he is dull of (spiritual) hearing. We were the same once, not so? It was only by faith in Him ( Christ Jesus) that we received God's grace. 
As a matter of interest, who was Seth's wife? She couldn't have been Seth's sister, else where did the gene pool come from? 
Having studied Palaeontology at Geology class at University, it became obvious that the earth is very old. Unless God placed fossils in the rocks of the earth to fool us, those trees and animals that do not identify with modern earth and that were converted into stone, coal and oil could only have lived a long, long time ago. 
If we read the first couple of chapters of Genesis carefully, it may be that Adam and Eve were created a long time after the earth was formed. There could quite well have been other humans on the earth. Consider the implications of Genesis 2:15 and 24. 
Reading the following passages of Scripture should also clarify what is meant: 
And there went a man of the house of Levi, and took to wife a daughter of Levi. And the woman conceived, and bare a son: and when she saw him that he was a goodly child, she hid him three months. 
(Exodus 2:1-2)
We could presume that Moses was the firstborn no so? Reading on, we see however that he had an elder sister. 
And when she could not longer hide him, she took for him an ark of bulrushes, and daubed it with slime and with pitch, and put the child therein; and she laid it in the flags by the river's brink. And his sister stood afar off, to wit what would be done to him. 
(Exodus 2:3-4)
The sister only comes into the story of Moses when needed.
There’s more. Aaron, who was Moses’ brother was also older, but he only comes into the story some eighty years later: 
And Moses was fourscore years old, and Aaron fourscore and three years old, when they spake unto Pharaoh. 
(Exodus 7:7)
Was God wanting to create a unique blood line, a “seed” line with Adam? It might not be as daft as it appears at first. Read Genesis 20:12, and Genesis 38. 
So, going back to Genesis 5, we see a couple of very interesting facts. 
Firstly, Enoch, the eighth from Adam, did not die. He was caught up alive because he walked with God. That is very significant isn't it. Where is he now? Where shall he be when the books are opened? 
Secondly, Noah's name had a special meaning: 
  • His father Lamech must have given it to him by revelation from God. 
  • The name meant comforter. Comforter from the curse that God had laid on Adam. Remember, God made a new Covenant with Noah, which must then mean that Adam's Covenant (curse) was modified by a better one. 
We see also that Noah was righteous: 
And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation. 
(Genesis 7:1)
He also had faith. Not many people would spend roughly a hundred years building a boat the size of a WWII aircraft carrier when he had never seen any rain on which to float it. 
Except for eight people, the flood, or deluge, wiped mankind off the face of the earth. 
And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; 
(2 Peter 2:5)
Which heavenly book are the souls of these people of the antediluvian (pre flood) world in? 
For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison; Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water. 
(1 Peter 3:18-20)
Here we see that Jesus Christ (quickened by the Spirit) spent some time (three days?) in Hades preaching to them. It would seem to appear that some are already in the Lamb's book of life, not so? Think about it. 
And the thief on the cross? that's an easy one. 
And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us. But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss. And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise. 
(Luke 23:39-43)
Please notice that Jesus said "today", not in three days after Satan has finished with me (as some teach), or three thousand years, but today. 
We also see that He led captivity captive: 
But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.) 
(Ephesians 4:7-10)
It would appear therefore that Christ and paradise are synonymous - where Christ is, there also is paradise. Also, that after a time in Hades, which is likened to jail or a holding tank, and after preaching to them; those who accepted His preaching were led by Him out of that place to another one higher than the heavens and that is now where paradise is. 
This is confirmed by Paul's writing: 
It is not expedient for me doubtless to glory. I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord. I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third heaven. And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter. Of such an one will I glory: yet of myself I will not glory, but in mine infirmities. For though I would desire to glory, I shall not be a fool; for I will say the truth: but now I forbear, lest any man should think of me above that which he seeth me to be, or that he heareth of me. And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure. 
(2 Corinthians 12:1-7)
It would also seem therefore, that all those Old Covenant saints who are in Abraham's bosom shall have their names added to the Lamb's book of life. 
They are not part of the bride because that is a separate event and has already been discussed elsewhere1 
So, who are those who are in the books which shall be opened that can have their names transferred to the Lamb's book of life? As we see, probably those after Noah but before Christ rose from the dead; all those who have not committed the unpardonable sin or who have been trapped by circumstances beyond their control into other religions. They all have one thing in common. Righteousness. Works. Righteous works. Charity. 
**A Psalm of David.** LORD, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill? He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart. 
(Psalms 15:1-2)
And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd. 
(John 10:16)
Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him. 
(Acts 10:34-35)
For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication: That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour; Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God: That no man go beyond and defraud his brother in any matter: because that the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also have forewarned you and testified. For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness. He therefore that despiseth, despiseth not man, but God, who hath also given unto us his holy Spirit. 
(1 Thessalonians 4:3-8)
To those of us who have family members who are unsaved or who are in the apostate church, be of good cheer. 
For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy. 
(1 Corinthians 7:14)
By our example and witness is our family influenced. And one day, even though they may mock us now, they shall see our righteousness and when the book with their name therein is opened and Christ Jesus preaches to them, they should accept Him as Lord. 
Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul; Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation. ¶ Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme; Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well. For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: 
(1 Peter 2:11-15)
Praise ye the LORD. Blessed is the man that feareth the LORD, that delighteth greatly in his commandments. His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed. 
(Psalms 112:1-2)
God and the Lamb
Just as the Old Covenant Jews of the time of Jesus of Nazareth’s ministry could not accept Him as Messiah because they could not understand God’s mystery that He would come twice, once as a suffering servant and the next time as King of kings; and similarly, as many Christians are misled by the mystery of the occurrence of the Rapture, confused by the times that are mentioned in the Scriptures - the present time, with people of flesh and blood; and future time with people that have resurrected bodies: so, many Christians are confused about the Persons of God and the Lamb. 
At the time of the Great White Throne judgement, when the sheep and the goats have been separated and there is only one book left, the book of the Lamb, Christ Jesus has fulfilled His work as that of the Messiah, the Branch. He has handed all over to the Father including Himself, so that God can be all in all. 
Is He ever known as Christ again? 
At this final stage, that of when the New Jerusalem is inhabited by those who are in the Lamb’s book of life, God and the Lamb truly are one, the temple of it. 
Those of us who make it to the end shall have even this mystery opened to us. 
Here are some passages of Scripture that can be used to confirm the various statements that have gone before: 
And there was a famine in the land, beside the first famine that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went unto Abimelech king of the Philistines unto Gerar. And the LORD appeared unto him, and said, Go not down into Egypt; dwell in the land which I shall tell thee of: Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father; And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed
(Genesis 26:1-4)
And give thee the blessing of Abraham, to thee, and to thy seed with thee; that thou mayest inherit the land wherein thou art a stranger, which God gave unto Abraham. 
(Genesis 28:4)
And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed. 
(Genesis 28:14)
which seed?
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 
(John 3:16)
And he blessed Joseph, and said, God, before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac did walk, the God which fed me all my life long unto this day, The Angel which redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads; and let my name be named on them, and the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; and let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth. 
(Genesis 48:15-16)
Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father? 
(John 14:9)
These two following are the descriptions of a different angel, not so. Christ Jesus has entered His rest: 
But the angel of the Lord by night opened the prison doors, and brought them forth, and said, Go, stand and speak in the temple to the people all the words of this life. 
(Acts 5:19-20)
And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people. Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him. And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains: and the keepers before the door kept the prison. And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands. And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself, and bind on thy sandals. And so he did. And he saith unto him, Cast thy garment about thee, and follow me. And he went out, and followed him; and wist not that it was true which was done by the angel; but thought he saw a vision. When they were past the first and the second ward, they came unto the iron gate that leadeth unto the city; which opened to them of his own accord: and they went out, and passed on through one street; and forthwith the angel departed from him. And when Peter was come to himself, he said, Now I know of a surety, that the Lord hath sent his angel, and hath delivered me out of the hand of Herod, and from all the expectation of the people of the Jews. And when he had considered the thing, he came to the house of Mary the mother of John, whose surname was Mark; where many were gathered together praying. 
(Acts 12:4-12)
And not only this; but when Rebecca also had conceived by one, even by our father Isaac; (For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth;) It was said unto her, The elder shall serve the younger. As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated. What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid. For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy. For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew my power in thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth. Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardeneth. Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth he yet find fault? For who hath resisted his will? Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus? Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour? What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction: And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory, Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles? As he saith also in Osee, I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved. And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God. Esaias also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved: For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth. And as Esaias said before, Except the Lord of Sabaoth had left us a seed, we had been as Sodoma, and been made like unto Gomorrha. What shall we say then? That the Gentiles, which followed not after righteousness, have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness which is of faith. But Israel, which followed after the law of righteousness, hath not attained to the law of righteousness. Wherefore? Because they sought it not by faith, but as it were by the works of the law. For they stumbled at that stumblingstone; 
(Romans 9:10-32)
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. 
(Philippians 2:5-11)
To Titus, mine own son after the common faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour. 
(Titus 1:4)
Not purloining, but shewing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things. For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. 
(Titus 2:10-14)
Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; 
(Titus 3:5-6)
God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they. For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son? And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him. And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire. But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands: 
(Hebrews 1:1-10)
But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool? Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation? 
(Hebrews 1:13-14)
But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man, that thou visitest him? Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands: Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him. But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man. For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings. For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren, Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee. And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me. Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; 
(Hebrews 2:6-14)
Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus; Who was faithful to him that appointed him, as also Moses was faithful in all his house. 
(Hebrews 3:1-2)
The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished: 
(2 Peter 2:9)
But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. 
(2 Peter 3:7)
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 
(2 Peter 3:9)
I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death. 
(Revelation 1:18)
To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. 
(Revelation 3:21)
These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful. 
(Revelation 17:14)
And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, 
(Revelation 21:10)
And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it. And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there. And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it. And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life. 
(Revelation 21:22-27)
Look at these:
For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son: 
(John 5:22)
And he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge of quick and dead. 
(Acts 10:42)
I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; 
(2 Timothy 4:1)
Rebuking Satan and demons. 
The significance of the word rebuke in this context is seldom appreciated. The old translation of the Afrikaans Bible uses the word "bestraf", which translated means "punish". It is sufficiently strong for Satan to pause in his striving for the body of Moses. This must surely mean then, that amongst other things, it must be a reminder to Satan and his demons of the punishment that is to be meted out to them, and they are sure of this punishment. 
Is it possibly an expression that is considered a curse that is invoked upon them ? 
It is therefore not to be used lightly or wantonly. 
In charismatic circles it's the done thing to "engage in spiritual warfare", for example laying hands on some sufferer and saying something like "Evil spirit, I rebuke you and bind you in the name of Jesus". 
Which Jesus? 
As we have seen, God is our Saviour and we approach His throne and are able to speak to Him through the Covenant of the Son of man, our High Priest, Christ Jesus. 
The archangel Michael gave us a clue as to how we should speak to evil spirits: 
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. 
(Jude 1:9)
This was the Old Covenant, so Lord means LORD, Jehovah. 
Therefore when we rebuke an evil spirit, to make it worth anything we must place the authority in the right order. 
We should say: 
"The Lord Jehovah rebuke you in the name of Christ Jesus whom I serve." 
Resist the devil and he shall flee from you, child of God. 
Make certain that you do serve Lord Jesus Christ, or else you might just receive the same treatment as one of those sons of Sceva! 
Or, if you are confident, that like Paul, you have been given special power by God (Acts 19:12-13), then perhaps you could do as he did: 
And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying: The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation. And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour. 
(Acts 16:16-18)
I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.
