“God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” (John 4:24, New American Standard Bible)
Exodus 33:9-11 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
9 And it came to pass, as Moses entered into the tabernacle, the pillar of cloud descended and stood at the door of the tabernacle, and the Lord talked with Moses. 10 And all the people saw the pillar of cloud standing at the tabernacle door; and all the people rose up and worshiped, every man in his tent door. 11 And the Lord spoke unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend. And he returned again into the camp; but his servant Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, departed not out of the tabernacle.
Exodus 40:34-35 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
34 Then a cloud covered the tent of the congregation, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle. 35 And Moses was not able to enter into the tent of the congregation because the cloud abode thereon, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle.
1 Kings 8:10-11 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
10 And it came to pass, when the priests had come out of the holy place, that the cloud filled the house of the Lord, 11 so that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud; for the glory of the Lord had filled the house of the Lord.
2 Chronicles 5, 22 1st Century King James Version (KJ21)
1 Thus all the work that Solomon made for the house of the Lord was finished. And Solomon brought in all the things that David is father had dedicated; and the silver, and the gold, and all the instruments put he among the treasures of the house of God. 2 Then Solomon assembled the elders of Israel and all the heads of the tribes, the chief of the fathers of the children of Israel, unto Jerusalem to bring up the ark of the covenant of the Lord out of the City of David, which is Zion.
7 And the priests brought in the ark of the covenant of the Lord unto his place, to the oracle of the house, into the Most Holy Place, even under the wings of the cherubims.
13 it came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the Lord, and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of music, and praised the Lord, saying, For He is good, for His mercy endureth for ever,” that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the Lord, 14 so that the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud, for the glory of the Lord had filled the house of God.
2 Chronicles 6, 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
1 Then said Solomon: “The Lord hath said that He would dwell in the thick darkness. 2 But I have built a house of habitation for Thee, and a place for Thy dwelling for ever.” 3 And the king turned his face and blessed the whole congregation of Israel, and all the congregation of Israel stood.
12 And he stood before the altar of the Lord in the presence of all the congregation of Israel, and spread forth his hands. 13 For Solomon had made a brazen scaffold of five cubits long and five cubits broad and three cubits high, and had set it in he midst of the court; and upon it he stood, and kneeled down upon his knees before all the congregation of Israel, and spread forth his hands toward heaven 14 and said, “O Lord God of Israel, there is no God like Thee in the heaven nor in the earth, who keepest covenant and showest mercy unto Thy servants who walk before Thee with all their hearts—
2 Chronicles 7, 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
1 Now when Solomon had made an end of praying, the fire came down from heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices; and the glory of the Lord filled the house. 2 And the priests could not enter into the house of the Lord, because the glory of the Lord had filled the Lord’S house. 3 And when all the children of Israel saw how the fire came down and the glory of the Lord upon the house, they bowed themselves with their faces to the ground upon the pavement, and worshiped and praised the Lord, saying, “For He is good, for His mercy endureth for ever.”
12 And the Lord appeared to Solomon by night and said unto him: “I have heard thy prayer, and have chosen this place for Myself for a house of sacrifice. 13 If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land or if I send pestilence among My people, 14 if My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves and pray, and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
America, and nations of the world; people of God, and people of the world, consider verse 14. Consider our leaders. Consider we, the people of God’s creation. Consider the consequences of defiance to verse 14. If you do not know Jesus as your Lord and Savior, the following words of scripture are as serious to you “as a heart attack!” There are two terms that relate to those who are dead. It is important for you to know, before your death, if you are one of the “dead in Christ,” or if you are one of the “dead.”
1. The dead in Christ. 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17. These are people who have a saving relationship with Jesus prior to their death.
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 New King James Version (NKJV)
16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.
2. The dead. Revelation 20:5, 12, 13. (See below). These are people who do not have a saving relationship with Jesus prior to their death.
Revelation 20, New King James Version (NKJV)
The Saints Reign with Christ 1,000 Years
4 And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. 5 But the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. 6 Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.
Satanic Rebellion Crushed
7 Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison 8 and will go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea. 9 They went up on the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city. And fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them. 10 The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.
The Great White Throne Judgment
11 Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books.13 The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. 14 Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15 And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.
As it relates to the “forever-ever,” consider the New Heaven And New Earth, and the New Jerusalem.
Revelation 21:1-8 New King James Version (NKJV)
All Things Made New
1 Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. 2 Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. 4 And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
5 Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”
6 And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. 7 He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. 8 But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
Verse 8 shows lifestyles that are proof that a person has not been born again.
John 3:3 New King James Version (NKJV)
3 Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
Follow verse 3 with verses 16-18. If a person believes in Christ, that person has been born again. If a person has been born again, that person believers in Christ (trusts in Christ) as their Lord and Savior.
John 3:16-18 New King James Version (NKJV)
16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
18 “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
Consider the greatness of “The New Jerusalem.” Consider those, alone, who may enter that city, “having the Glory of God.”
Revelation 21, New King James Version (NKJV)
The New Jerusalem
9 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls filled with the seven last plagues came to me and talked with me, saying, “Come, I will show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife.” 10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, 11 having the glory of God. Her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal.
The Glory of the New Jerusalem
22 But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. 23 The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light. 24 And the nations of those who are saved shall walk in its light, and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor into it. 25 Its gates shall not be shut at all by day (there shall be no night there). 26 And they shall bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it. 27 But there shall by no means enter it anything that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
Consider again verse 27, as it relates to those whom may, or may not, enter the New Jerusalem.”Only those who are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life,” which are those who have been born again; those who have placed their trust in Jesus as their Lord and Savior, may enter the New Jerusalem.
27 But there shall by no means enter it anything that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
The words “coming quickly,” are heart-stabbing for those who do not know Jesus as their Lord and Savior, because the meaning is that Jesus may come “at any time.”
Revelation 22:20-21 New King James Version (NKJV)
I Am Coming Quickly
20 He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.” Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus! 21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
People of the USA and the world, our only true Spiritual Leader is Jesus, Who is “King of Kings and Lord of Lords.” But, for a person to be a national leader, such a person needs the humility that we saw in Solomon. (2 Chronicles 5-7). Does the leader of the USA have the humility and worshipful attitude of Solomon, with that same relationship that we also saw in the person of Solomon? Does the leader of the USA humble himself before the people of America and proclaim the greatness of the God of “Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob?” You can answer the questions.
2 Chronicles 6:14 New King James Version (NKJV)
14 and he said: “Lord God of Israel, there is no God in heaven or on earth like You, who keep Your covenant and mercy with Your servants who walk before You with all their hearts.
Revelation 19:11-16 New King James Version (NKJV)
11 Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. 12 His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. 13 He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. 14 And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. 15 Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the wine press of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. 16 And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
