When It Is Done!
MSTC(i)1 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, that thou shalt be spoiled and robbed. 2 For I will gather together all the Heathen, to fight against Jerusalem: so that the city shall be won, the houses spoiled, and the women defiled. The half of the city shall go away into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be carried out of the city. 3 After that shall the LORD go forth, to fight against those Heathen, as men used to fight in the day of battle. 4 Then shall his feet stand upon the mount Olivet, that lieth upon the east side of Jerusalem. And the mount Olivet shall cleave in two, eastward and westward, so that there shall be a great valley: and the half mount shall remove toward the north, and the other half toward the south. 5 And ye shall flee unto the valley of my hills, for the valley of the hills shall reach unto Asia. Yea, flee shall ye, like as ye fled for the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. And the LORD my God shall come, and all saints with him. 6 In that day shall it not be light, but cold and frost. 7 This shall be that special day which is known unto the LORD: neither day nor night, but about the evening time it shall be light. 8 In that time shall there waters of life run out from Jerusalem: the half part of them toward the east sea, and the other half toward the utmost sea, and shall continue both summer and winter. 9 And the LORD himself shall be king over all the earth. At that time shall there be one LORD only, and his name shall be but one. 10 Men shall go about the whole earth, as upon a field: from Geba to Rimmon, and from the south to Jerusalem. She shall be set up, and inhabited in her place: from Benjamin’s port, unto the place of the first port, and unto the corner port: and from the tower of Hananel, unto the king’s wine presses. 11 There shall men dwell, and there shall be no more cursing: but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited. 12 This shall be the plague, wherewith the LORD will smite all people, that have fought against Jerusalem: Namely, their flesh shall consume away, though they stand upon their feet; their eyes shall be corrupt in their holes, and their tongue shall consume in their mouth. 13 In that day shall the LORD make a great sedition among them, so that one man shall take another by the hand, and lay his hands upon the hands of his neighbour. 14 Judah shall fight also against Jerusalem, and the goods of all the Heathen shall be gathered together round about: gold and silver and a very great multitude of clothes. 15 And so shall this plague go over horses, mules, camels, asses, and all the beasts that shall be in the host, like as yonder plague was. 16 Every one that remaineth then of all the people, which came against Jerusalem, shall go up yearly, to worship the King, even the LORD of Hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles. 17 And look: what generation upon earth goeth not up to Jerusalem for to worship the King, even the LORD of Hosts: upon the same shall come no rain. 18 If the kindred of Egypt go not up, and come not, it shall not rain upon them neither. This shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all Heathen, that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles. 19 Yea, this shall be the sin plague of Egypt and the sin plague of all people that go not up to keep the feast of tabernacles. 20 At that time shall the riding gear of the horses be holy unto the LORD, and the kettles in the LORD’s house shall be like the basins before the altar: 21 yea all the kettles in Jerusalem and Judah shall be holy unto the LORD of Hosts: and all they that slay offerings, shall come and take of them, and dight (prepare) them therein. And at that time there shall be no more Cananites (pedlars) in the house of the LORD.
“Arise, O thou sword, upon my shepherd, and upon the prince of my people, sayeth the LORD of Hosts: Smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered abroad, and so will I turn mine hand to the little ones. 8 And it shall come to pass, sayeth the LORD, that in all the land two parts shall be rooted out, but the third part shall remain therein. 9 And the same third part will I bring through the fire, and will cleanse them, as the silver is cleansed: Yea and try them, like as gold is tried. Then shall they call upon my name, and I will hear them: I will say, ‘It is my people.’ And they shall say, ‘LORD, my God.'”
And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit, and a great chain in his hand. 2 And he took the dragon, that old serpent which is the devil and Satan, and he bound him a thousand years: 3 and cast him into the bottomless pit, and he bound him, and set a seal on him, that he should deceive the people no more, till the thousand years were fulfilled. And after that he must be loosed for a little season. 4 And I saw seats, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God: which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had taken his mark upon their foreheads, or on their hands: and they lived, and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 5 But the others of the dead men lived not again, until the thousand years were finished. This is that first resurrection. 6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection. For on such shall the second death have no power, for they shall be the priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
Isaiah 8:19 thru 9:7
And therefore if they say unto you, “Ask counsel at the soothsayers, witches, charmers and conjurers,” then make them this answer: “Is there a people anywhere, that asketh not counsel at his God? Should they run unto the dead for the living?” 20 If any man want light, let him look upon the law and the testimony whether they speak not after this meaning. 21 If he do not this, he stumbleth and suffereth hunger. And if he suffer hunger, he is out of patience, and blasphemeth his king and his God. Then looketh he upward, and downward to the earth, 22 and behold, there is trouble and darkness; vexation is round about him, and the cloud of error. And out of such adversity, shall he not escape.
1 Even like as in time past it hath been well seen, that the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, wherethrough the sea way goeth over Jordan in to the land of Galilee, was at the first in little trouble, but afterward sore vexed. 2 The people that have dwelt in darkness, shall see a great light. As for them that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them shall the light shine. 3 Shalt thou multiply the people, and not increase the joy also? They shall rejoice before thee even as men make merry in harvest, and as men that have gotten the victory, when they deal the spoil. 4 For thou shalt break the yoke of the people’s burden: the staff of his shoulder and the rod of his oppressor, as in the day of Midian. 5 Moreover all temerarious and seditious power, yea, where there is but a coat filled with blood, shall be burnt, and feed the fire. 6 For unto us a child is born, and unto us a son is given. Upon his shoulders shall the kingdom lie, and he shall be called with his own name, “Wonderful, the giver of counsel, the mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of peace.” 7 He shall make no end to increase the kingdom and peace, and shall sit upon the seat of David and in his kingdom, to set up the same: to establish it with equity and righteousness, from thenceforth for evermore. This shall the jealousy of the LORD of hosts bring to pass.
Thus sayeth the LORD: Heaven is my seat, and the earth is my footstool. Where shall now the house stand, that ye build unto me? And where shall be the place, that I will dwell in? 2 As for these things, my hand hath made them all, and they are all created, sayeth the LORD. Which of them shall I then regard? Even him that is of a lowly troubled spirit, and standeth in awe of my works.
And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. 18 And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. 19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. 20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. 21 And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent (91 lb. – troy): and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.
World’s largest hailstone ever recorded. Diameter: 5.5 inches
Weight: 0.79 pounds
Location: Southwest Germany

There is an old saying, “It ain’t over until the fat lady sings.”. Well, can’t say anything about the size or gender of angels, but it ain’t over until a great voice out of the temple of heaven from the throne says, “It-r-Done!”
Stay strong and have a restful Sabbath!
