The Seal of GodJanuary 19, 2024
The Bible prophesy that they will be the last disaster which will destroy the whole world. Then how can we escape the last disaster and enter Heavenly Kingdom?
The Seal of God the only way to Escape the Last Disaster
God teaches us through the Bible that we can escape the last disaster by receiving the Seal of God.
Revelation 9:4 They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any plant or tree, but only those people who did not have the seal of God on their foreheads.
The Bible clearly says that only the people who did not have the seal of God will be harmed. It means they cannot escape the last disaster. Like this we can understand that only the people who have the seal of God will be saved. So we have to know what the seal of God is and receive it without fail.
Jesus’ Flesh and Blood is the Seal of God
Let us study what is the seal of God and how can we receive it.
John 6:27 Do not work for that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. For on him God the Father has placed his seal of approval.”
It is written that the seal of God is on him, him means the Son of Man and the Son of Man is Jesus.
How can we have the seal of God in Jesus? If we can become one body with Jesus we can also have the seal of God.How can we become one body with Jesus?
John 6: 53-56 Jesus said to them, “very truly I tell you unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you.Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day. For my my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in them.
It is written that whoever eats Jesus’ flesh and drinks His blood, he/she remains in Jesus and Jesus remains in them. This means that we can only become one body with Jesus by eating His flesh and drinking His blood.
What is the characteristic of the Seal of God? Wherever there is the seal of God there is no disaster. For this Jesus says that whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood I will raise them up at the last day.
What will happen on the last day? There will be last disaster. Jesus promised that He will surely save the people who eat his flesh and drink his blood. This shows that those who did not eat Jesus’ flesh and blood cannot be saved and escape the last disaster. Jesus’ flesh and blood is the seal of God.
The Passover the Reality of the Seal of God
We have learnt that we can escape the last disaster by eating the flesh and blood of Jesus, then how we eat and drink the flesh and blood of Jesus? It is only through the Passover of the New Covenant.
Matthew 26: 17-19 On the first day of the festival of Unleavened Bread, the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “where do you want us to make preparations for you to eat the Passover? He replied, Go into the city to a certain man and tell him, ‘The Teacher says: My appointed time is near. I am going to celebrate the Passover with my disciples at your house.’ ” So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them and prepared the Passover.”
Which day was this? The day of the Passover. What did Jesus say He will eat, celebrate and asked His disciples to prepare? The Passover. This clearly shows us that we also have to eat,celerate and prepare the Passover.
Let’s see how Jesus Christ celebrate the Passover.
Matthew 26:26-28 While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, ”Take and eat; this is my body.”Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, ”Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.
Bread of the Passover is Jesus’ flesh and wine of the Passover is Jesus’ blood. The only way through which we can eat and drink the flesh and blood of Jesus is the Passover. This Passover is called the New Covenant in the gospel of Luke(Luk 22:7-8,19-20).
Whoever Keeps the Passover can Escape the Last Disaster and enter the Everlasting Kingdom of Heaven
To help us believe and surely keep the passover of the New Covenant through which we can escape the Last Disaster, Our God showed us example through the history of Israel. When the Israelites were in Egypt they were saved from great disaster of killing all the first born of both people and animals through the Passover lamb’s blood(Exo 12:10-14) and they could enter the land of Canaan flowing with milk and honey
This was to show us that we shall escape the last disaster which destroys the whole world and enter heavenly kingdom, through the Sacrifice of Christ who died for us as the Passover Lamb(1 Cor 5:7).
Let us keep the Passover of the new covenant, which is the Seal of God to be saved at the last and great disaster which is imminent.
