The Seal of GodOctober 1, 2017
God’s Promise of Protection from Disasters
The Bible prophesied about disasaters that will occur on earth. Evidently, the number of natural disasters and man-made disasters have increased. In recent times, a new coronavirus has appeared and affected the lives of many.
God, who knows the end from the beginning (Isaiah 46:10-11) provided a solution for mankind, and gave the promise that those who receive the seal of God will be protected.
Revelation 7:1-3 After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth to prevent ant wind from blowing on the land or on the sea or on any tree. Then I saw another angel coming up from the east, having the seal of the living God He called out in a loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to harm the landand the sea.
It is written that there are four angels standing at the four corners of the earth to prevent any from blowing on it. From this, we can understand that refers to disasters that will befall the earth.
So, if we were to receive the seal of God , disasters will pass over us.
Then what is the seal of God?
John 6:27 “Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life which the Son of Man (Jesus) will give you. For on him God the Father has placed his seal of approval.”
God has put His seal on Jesus. How can we have the seal of God then?
Therefore Jesus Christ said,
John 6:53-56 Jesus said to them, “I tell you the truth, 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 him up at the last day. For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink Whoever eats my flesh and my drinks my blood remains in me, and I in him.”
When we eat and drink Jesus’ flesh and blood, we will be one body with Jesus: the seal that is on Jesus will remain in us.
How can we eat Jesus’ flesh and drink His blood then?
The Passover of the New Covenant
Matthew 26:17-19, 26-28 …So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them and prepared the Passover. … While they were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave to his disciples, saying “Take and eat; this is my body.” Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered 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… “
On the according to the sacred calendar (Leviticus 23:4-5), Jesus observed the Passover of the New Covenant with His disciples. Jesus gave the promise that the Passover bread and wine symbolises His flesh and blood.
By keeping the Passover, we will be able to receive the seal of God.
Come and Keep the Passover
What do we wish the most for our beloved ones? Isn’t it for them to be safe from harm?
The best protection of all is given by God. Come and keep the Passover with your friends and family and be protected from disasters!
