Waves of the Sea…..January 2, 2020
[my first message this year]. By: Jo Smith
Rev 17 : 15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.
In order to understand Scripture you must first learn its language. It uses natural terms to show spiritual things. Now these things do happen in the natural. But to understand the Word of God you must be able to see it as spiritual for it is spiritual.
In studying for many years I came to see that ‘sea’ equals the law system of the OT. Earth equals the church system of the NT. And of course Heaven is the true spirit-filled people of God.
So in light of this we see that ‘sea’ also shows the masses of unsaved people on earth. It is the nations that do not serve God or truth. So with that is mind let’s study about these WAVES OF THE SEA.
Thou rulest the raging of the sea: when the waves thereof arise, thou stillest them
WE will learn that the nations of ungodly men and that law system have raged against men since time began. There is a lot to this, but I am only going to put in a short amount.
The Lord on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea.
This shows that the Lord is much greater than any of these nations or waters. The waters on which the whore sits is the nations, kindreds peoples and tongues. If you study my message on the Mother of Harlots you will be in for a shock and a much needed truth with which to interpret the Word of God.
Most people believe the lie that Rome is the mother of harlots in Scripture. Not true. Old Jerusalem is. Old law system. So the knowledge of this is necessary to ever get the Word of God truly understood.
He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still.
Jesus proved this when the storm had filled their boat. He was asleep and the boat was about to be sunk in the violent storm. It is showing that as people, especially church people, have allowed themselves to become lukewarm against God, Jesus was asleep in their lives. Because of this the storms have about sunk them, the church and the nations. But when they awakened Jesus He rose and rebuked the storm and they were saved. It is the RAGING of the waves that is the problem.
O that thou hadst hearkened to my commandments! then had thy peace been as a river, and thy righteousness as the waves of the sea:
So we see here that if you obey the Lord you will have peace as a river and as waves of a calm sea.
But I am the Lord thy God, that divided the sea, whose waves roared: the Lord of hosts is his name.
God shows here that when the waves ROAR or rage he will divide that sea.
fear ye not me? saith the Lord: will ye not tremble at my presence, which have placed the sand for the bound of the sea by a perpetual decree, that it cannot pass it: and though the waves thereof toss themselves, yet can they not prevail; though they roar, yet can they not pass over it?
God set a boundary that the sea cannot pass over no matter how they toss or rage. God will not allow them to totally destroy his creation.
Thus saith the Lord, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The Lord of hosts is his name:
So the day is when Jesus or the sun himself is doing the leading or teaching. The moon and stars are night light or church/law. When the sea begins to roar or rage, God will divide it. That is what we have been experiencing.
All during the past century we have seen wars and divisions everywhere. But now that we have reached another time, 2020, which shows perfect vision, we are going to come into a peaceful age.
The sea is come up upon Babylon: she is covered with the multitude of the waves thereof.
Babylon is Adam’s kingdom or mankind living for self. It is law, church and just sinful living. So the waves of the sea have covered their multitude and God will destroy that system. This will give the rest who are left, peace. No more wars. No more division.
because the Lord hath spoiled Babylon, and destroyed out of her the great voice; when her waves do roar like great waters, a noise of their voice is uttered:
When the waves of Babylon (sea) is raging the voice of God is silenced. Therefore she is spoiled.
therefore thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against thee, O Tyrus, and will cause many nations to come up against thee, as the sea causeth his waves to come up.
Tyrus is actually Adam/satan. So God is going and has already in past time, caused many nations to come up against this carnal system. In the end these raging waves will destroy that evil kingdom of Adam or sinners, off this entire earth. THEN THE ENTIRE EARTH WILL HAVE PEACE AND QUIETNESS. Isa 14.
And he shall pass through the sea with affliction, and shall smite the waves in the sea, and all the deeps of the river shall dry up: and the pride of Assyria shall be brought down, and the sceptre of Egypt shall depart away.
This is when God will finally destroy the sinful nation off this earth.
And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
AT the end of time we will see these signs and are now seeing them. The church system, the natural nations are all in distress as the waves roar. We will soon see all of this brought to a peaceful end.
And falling into a place where two seas met, they ran the ship aground; and the forepart stuck fast, and remained unmoveable, but the hinder part was broken with the violence of the waves.
The above was showing the ending as Jesus said, nation against nation and kingdom against kingdom. Now those two seas, or the church and law systems, break the ship with their violence. They will fall and never rise again for they both taught rebellion against God.
And here we see the finishing of this evil system that has fought against God since Adam rebelled:
Jude 12-14 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
12 These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; 13 raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.
Those old spirits and men of old is these spots, clouds, winds, trees and raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; they are wandering stars who will never come into God’s Holy kingdom, but will be cast into outer darkness forever.
