‘Ark’ of Safety

Ark of Safety

Re 11:19 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…Re 6:17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?


Biblical Arks of Safety

Noah’s Ark: Ge 6:18 But with thee will I establish my covenant; and thou shalt come into the ark,…

Moses’ Ark: Ex 2:3 And when she could not longer hide him(baby Moses), she took for him an ark

Ark of Covenant: Heb 9:4 … 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 (10 Commandments)  tables of the covenant.

Who can stand???  In this section you can read and watch how the three items God had placed into His ‘ark of covenant’ was a description of Jesus, Holy Spirit, God’s heart- the 10 Commandments.  This last day ark is described using scripture in 3 steps:

1)  Jesus represents the Manna because He is the ‘Bread of Life’

2)  The Holy Spirit is represented by the staff/rod because the rod and staff is our comforter and guide; as the Holy Spirit performs miracles, so too the staff was a conduit in performing miracles.

3) 10 Commandments need to be remembered and obeyed.

Next, contrasts this protection in His ark w/ the world and worldly Christians that don’t fully embrace His protection.

 

 

Regarding Dreams and Visions

Please come back to this site towards the beginning of the year, Jan. 2015.  I’m compiling the list of ‘Dreams and Visions’ and in the process of putting it together in a clear format.  It was through these ‘experiences’ and dreams/visions that inspired what is found on this page ‘Ark of Safety’.


 

 

A Look at the Last Day Ark

Summarized in the Marriage Feast

Matthew 22

In Matthew 22, you can see there is a place of safety within all 3 ‘covenants’ God has made with his people throughout the ages- we will need to 1) receive Jesus, 2) be guided by/listen to the Holy Spirit, & 3) come to theMarriage/Feast of Tabernacles (Command 4 from ‘10 Commandments‘)

Mt 22:2 The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a certain king, who made a marriage feast for his son, (Commandment 4– Sabbath/Lord’s Day/Feast of Tabernacles/Marriage Feast/Shadow of His Wings)

Mt 22:3 And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.

Mt 22:4 Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden (Holy Spirit/Spirit of Prophecy), Behold, I have made ready my dinner; my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come to the marriage feast. (Commandment 4– Sabbath/Lord’s Day/Feast of Tabernacles/Marriage Feast/Shadow of His Wings)

Mt 22:5 But they made light of it…

Mt 22:9 Go ye therefore unto the partings of the highways, and as many as ye shall find,(Holy Spirit/Spirit of Prophecy)  bid to the marriage feast…

Mt 22:11 But when the king came in to behold the guests, he saw there a man who had not on a wedding-garment(Received Jesus as Bridegroom):

Mt 22:12 and he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding-garment?(Received Jesus as Bridegroom)? And he was speechless

Mt 22:13 Then the king said to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and cast him out into the outer darkness; there shall be the weeping and the gnashing of teeth.


Why the ’Marriage Feast’ is Commandment 4

Leviticus 23 (below) is considered to be the wedding rehearsals for the true WEDDING mentioned above in Matthew 22 the time of the ‘Great & Terrible Day of the Lord’

Le 23:39 Also in the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when ye have gathered in the fruit of the land, ye shall keep a feast unto the LORD seven days: on the first day shall be a sabbath, and on the eighth day shall be a sabbath. 23:40 And ye shall take you on the first day the boughs of goodly trees, branches of palm trees, and the boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook; and ye shall rejoice before the LORD your God seven days.

STEP #2- RECEIVE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

STEP #2- RECEIVE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

AARON’S ROD BUDDED W/RENEWED LIFE- the rod and staff is our comforter (Ps. 23); The Holy Ghost is our comforter (Jn. 14); Miracles and the rod (Ex.)

Ac 19:2 He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost  Ac 19:3 And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, Unto John’s baptism.  Ac 19:4 Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus. Ac 19:5 When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.  Ac 19:6 And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied.  Ac 19:7 And all the men were about twelve.

Isa 10:27 And it shall come to pass in that day, that his (evil king) burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.

Ps 23:5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over…Ps 28:8 The LORD is their strength, and he is the saving strength of his anointed.

Joh 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.  Joh 14:13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.  Joh 14:14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.  Joh 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.  Joh 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

Mr 16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tonguesMr 16:18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

Mt 25:1 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.  Mt 25:2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.  Mt 25:3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:  Mt 25:4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps…Mt 25:10…the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.

Ac 2:17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: Ac 2:18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: Ac 2:19 And I will show wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: Ac 2:20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come: Ac 2:21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

 

 

1co 14:1 Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy. Re 19:10 … for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

Ga 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Ga 5:23 Meekness, temperance1co 12:28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues. … 1co 12:31 But covet earnestly the best gifts.

1co 12:7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. 1co 12:8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; 1co 12:9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; 1co 12:10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues: 1co 12:11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.

STEP #3- REMEMBER THE LAW OF MOSES: 10 COMMANDMENTS

 

STEP #3- REMEMBER THE LAW OF MOSES: 10 COMMANDMENTS

(Warning!! Keeping Commandments w/out the Holy Spirit = Religious/pride spirit)

Mal 4:4 Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments  Mal 4:5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD

Mt 15:3 … Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?

Joh 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.

1jo 5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

De 30:6 And the LORD thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live…De 30:8 And thou shalt return and obey the voice of the LORD, and do all his commandments which I command thee this day.

Heb 8:10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people

Mt 5:19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven

Mt 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

Lu 9:23 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

Ro 6:1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?  Ro 6:2 God forbid…

Ro 7:12 Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good.

Isa 24:5 The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.  Isa 24:6 Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left.

 

The Greatest Commandment

 

The Greatest Commandment

Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. Mt 22:38 This is the first and great commandment…Here’s how-

Commandment 1

I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Ex 20:3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

Commandment 2

Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Ex 20:5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; Ex 20:6 And showing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

Commandment 3

Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

Commandment 4

Ex 20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Ex 20:9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: Ex 20:10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: Ex 20:11 For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

The Day of the Lord = Day of Vengeance or Day of Rest/Sabbath if we enter in-

Heb 4:3 For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.

Heb 4:4 For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works. Heb 4:5 And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest. Heb 4:6 Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief: Heb 4:7 Again, he limiteth a certain day, saying in David, To day, after so long a time; as it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts. Heb 4:8 For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day.  Heb 4:9 There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.  Heb 4:10 For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.  Heb 4:11 Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.

Isa 58:13 If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words:  Isa 58:14 Then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.

And the second (command) is like unto it (loving God), Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

Remember- Salvation comes through faith in Christ (step #1); Jesus says “Follow Me” (which is step #2- walking a Spirit filled life & #3- keeping ALL God’s Commandments)

Eph 2:8  For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:  Eph 2:9 Not of works, lest any man should boast

Jas 1:22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves…Jas 2:18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: show me thy faith without thy works, and I will show thee my faith by my works.

2pe 3:3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,  2pe 3:4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.

Re 9:20 And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:  Re 9:21 Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries(pharmakeia/drug use), nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.

‘Worldly’ Christians

(Lacking the Holy Spirit)

Mt 25:1 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.  Mt 25:2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish  Mt 25:3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:…  Mt 25:8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.  Mt 25:9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.  Mt 25:10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.

Re 3:16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth (Alludes to unsaved ‘Christian’)

 

 

Re 6:10 …, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?

(Alludes to saved Christian, but unprotected)

Isa 24:5 The earth also is polluted under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, violated the statutes, broken the everlasting covenant.
