Decision making techniques using spiritual toolsWritten by Judi Singleton
Here are some steps I take to make decisions I have found a lot of ways to make decisions and look at things but this one works for me. First I must recognise precise question. If you can formaulate a clear question like what is issue here? But you must be clearer than that. Clarify and understand issues envolved. Ask yourself why you have to make this decision. Separate issues into first things to be worked on and lesser issues. Check all your assumptions. What are givens here. Remember that under each given has an assumption behind it. It is important to look at assumptions for they will get in your way later. Whatever we assume determines data you will look at.
Revelations,A Study.Section 5. Written by Rev.Anthony Smith
Revelations,A Study.Section 5. Chapter 7:2 thru 7:8 The sealing of hundred and forty and four thousand of all tribes of children of Israel. The first question we will look at is word seal. Why and what is meaning? Seal; Sphragis Sfrag-ece' Probably strengthened from G5420; A signet (as fencing in or protecting from misappropriation); by implication stamp impressed (as a mark of privacy, or genuineness), literally or figuratively. The Sealing of 144,000 is representative or should we say paralell to mark of beast, only by God on His chosen. There are many simularieties between Satans Kingdom and Kingdom of God. If you look close you will see The Trinity of Father, Son and Holy Ghost and in paraell you will see Satan, The Beast and False prophet. You will also see when God seals His chosen from each tribe of Israel you will also see Satan marking His members. You may ask,”Does Satan really have a Kingdom?” The answer is yes, its scriptual. Do I also have proof of these things, yes, we will look at each as we progress into our study. The 144,000 are sealed Jews that will preach Gospel to each tribe of Israel. [ref; Eze_47:13, Eze_48:19, Eze_48:31; Zec_9:1] Verse 7:1 is speaking of a plague about to be poured upon earth. Each plague is real, there is no symbolism here. Rev 7:1 And after these things I saw four angels standing on four corners of earth,[North,South,East and West.] holding four winds of earth, that wind should not blow on earth, nor on sea, nor on any tree. The wind is an extremely important factor in our ability to breath and controlls rains. Rev 7:2 And I saw another angel ascending[comming up from] from east, having seal of living God:... [The mark of Most High, as per a king and his mark on official documents] ...and he cried with a loud voice to four angels, to whom it was given to hurt earth and sea, Now If you have noticed each angel that is mentioned has a specific position to fulfill and maintain. This is pattern that Jesus has set down for His Church. [Ref; 1Co 12:5 And there are differences of administrations, but same Lord.
