Israel and Zion Part I - The Sticks and David



 

          In the papers addressing the gentiles and Zion, the prophecy of Joseph who was sold into Egypt foretold a day when the records of Judah and Joseph grow together to confound false doctrine, lay down contentions, establish peace among the fruit of Joseph of Egypt’s loins, bring them to the knowledge of their fathers and the Lord’s covenants in the last days (see RE 2 Nephi 2:4). Like weaving a tapestry, these prophecies are like threads of truth woven together to form a picture of the gathering of Israel and Zion.

          A well known but seldom examined prophecy from Ezekiel provides the background to begin the tapestry. RE Ezekiel 19 contains a prophecy with similarities to the prophecy of Joseph of Egypt. Ezekiel’s prophecy refers to the records of Judah and Joseph as “sticks.” This is the part of Ezekiel’s prophecy supporting the combination of the Bible with the Book of Mormon. While this assertion has plausibility, the chapter more broadly addresses the gathering of Israel in a future day.

The hand of the Lord was upon me and carried me out in the spirit of the Lord, and set me down in the middle of the valley which was full of bones, and caused me to pass by them round about. And behold, there were very many in the open valley, and behold, they were very dry. And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord God, you know. Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O you dry bones, hear the word of the Lord. Thus says the Lord God unto these bones: Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you and you shall live. And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and you shall live. And you shall know that I am the Lord.

So I prophesied as I was commanded. And as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold, a shaking; and the bones came together, bone to his bone. And when I beheld, behold, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above; but there was no breath in them. Then he said unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus says the Lord God: Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live. So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived and stood up upon their feet, an exceedingly great army.

Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel. Behold, they say, Our bones are dried and our hope is lost, we are cut off for our parts. Therefore, prophesy and say unto them, Thus says the Lord God: Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel. And you shall know that I am the Lord when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves, and shall put my spirit in you. And you shall live, and I shall place you in your own land. Then shall you know that I the Lord have spoken it and performed it, says the Lord” (RE Ezekiel 19:1-3, emphasis added).

         

The subject of this chapter is often associated with the resurrection, but the primary focus is how the Lord will resurrect His family, Israel. New life is breathed into the old bones of the kindred dead of Israel because the Spirit of Elijah connects the blessings of the Patriarchal Fathers with their living descendants on earth. When the sealing power is restored, the living descendants may then adopt their deceased ancestors offering to them the promises the Patriarchal Fathers restored to them. This is the stated objective. Ezekiel is then instructed by the Lord on how this will be accomplished.


The Sticks of Judah and Joseph Are Joined Together


          Ezekiel is commanded to write on one stick for Judah and another stick for Joseph.

The word of the Lord came again unto me, saying, Moreover, you son of man, take one stick and write upon it: For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions. Then take another stick and write upon it: For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel his companions. And join them one to another, into one stick, and they shall become one in your hand. And when the children of your people shall speak unto you, saying, Will you not show us what you mean by these? Say unto them, Thus says the Lord God: Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick; and they shall be one in my hand. And the sticks on which you write shall be in your hand before their eyes” (RE Ezekiel 19:4, emphasis added).

The purpose of this prophecy is to explain to Ezekiel and by extension to his people, how the Lord intends to gather and restore Israel. The two sticks represent the records of Judah and Joseph and the tribes of Israel. However, the joining together the sticks is more than combining two books. It also refers to a reunion of the tribe of Judah with Ephraim and the tribes of Israel.

                   Denver Snuffer explained the strained relationship between Judah, Ephraim and the tribes of Israel.

“Ephraim’s “envy” of Judah stems from old family issues. Ephraim had the birthright.336 Yet despite this, Judah was the tribe through whom the line of kings would come.337 So Ephraim, who thought it their right to be preeminent as a result of the birthright, were required to submit to Judah’s line of kings. Such was the stuff from which the “envy of Ephraim” arose.338 This jealousy led to the division of Israel into the two kingdoms of the north and the south after the death of Solomon. The northern kingdom, or Kingdom of Israel, or Ephraim, as it was sometimes called, was the product of Ephraim’s pride and rebellion at Judah’s kingship” (Snuffer Jr., Denver C.. Nephi's Isaiah, pp.243-244,emphasis added).

          Following the death of Solomon, Israel divided into the Northern Kingdom, (Ephraim and the other tribes of Israel), and the Southern Kingdom of Judah. In the last days, before Zion can be established, Israel must be reunited as one kingdom, Israel or the family of God.

                   The next verse in Ezekiel 19 begins to address how the Lord intends to accomplish the reunion of Israel.

“And say unto them, Thus says the Lord God: Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen [gentiles] where they are gone, and will gather them on every side and bring them into their own land [Lord re-establishes a covenant with Israel]. And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel, and one king shall be king to them all. And they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms anymore at all. Neither shall they defile themselves anymore with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions, but I will save them out of all their dwelling places wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them. So shall they be my people and I will be their God” (RE Ezekiel 19:5, emphasis added).

          John the Beloved and other angelic ministrants was given the assignment from Christ to do the work described in this passage of Ezekiel.

“Question: What are we to understand by the four angels spoken of by John, 7th chapter and 1st verse of Revelation [Rev. 2:13]?Answer: We are to understand that they are four angels sent forth from God, to whom is given power over the four parts of the earth, to save life and to destroy. These are they who have the everlasting gospel to commit to every nation, kindred, tongue, and people, having power to shut up the heavens, to seal up unto life, or to cast down to the regions of darkness [Spirit of Elijah, sealing power, Patriarchal Fathers].

Question: What are we to understand by the angel ascending from the east, Revelation, 7th chapter and 2nd verse [Rev. 2:13]?Answer: We are to understand that the angel ascended from the east is he to whom is given the seal of the living God over the twelve tribes of Israel [Spirit of Elijah, sealing power]. Wherefore, he cries unto the four angels having the everlasting gospel, saying: Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. And if you will receive it, this is Elias, which was to come, to gather together the tribes of Israel and restore all things.

Question: What are we to understand by the little book which was eaten by John, as mentioned in the 10th chapter of Revelation [Rev. 3:13]?Answer: We are to understand that it was a mission and an ordinance for him to gather the tribes of Israel. Behold, this [John the Beloved] is Elias who, as it is written, must come and restore all things” (RE T&C 74:8-9, 14, emphasis added).

John the Beloved and four angels under his direction seal God’s servants in their foreheads, suggesting they are inducted into the Holy Order after the Son of God. They minister to God’s servants as they gather Israel. The Earth is divided into quarters with each angelic ministrant assigned responsibility over a quarter of the Earth. The four angels are identified and described by Denver Snuffer.

I want to remind you that Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael are known to us by other names and roles while they were mortal. As those who have come, though they were part of the El, or in the plural form, the Eloheim, they came into mortality and they served here among us. They came and they ministered here. Michael descended, and he came to the earth and he was known as the man Adam in mortality. Gabriel came to the earth and he was known in mortality as the man Noah. There is a big debate over the identical to the Raphael. I will tell you what I think and you can take it or leave it. Raphael is the name that was given to the man who in mortality we know as Enoch. Now there are four angels who preside over the four corners of the earth. Joseph surely knew that. Joseph’s letter mentions the names of three of the four. But he leaves the fourth one out. And I find the absence of the fourth one rather extraordinary. Now the fourth one's name is Uriel, also one of the Eloheim. There are certainly some who believe the reason for omitting his name from the letter was because Joseph Smith was Uriel. I do not subscribe to that belief. Although there are those who will absolutely cry heresy, and throw dirt on their hair, and tear their clothes because they are scholars, and they are bona fide, and they know I'm talking out of my hat—but I'd remind you that Joseph talked out of his hat too. That fourth and missing, unmentioned angel, Uriel, in mortality was known to us as John, the one who was beloved of the Lord” (Priesthood, Denver Snuffer Jr., p.31, emphasis added).

                   Each angel is assigned one quarter of the Earth and bears the power to seal up unto eternal life or to cast down to the regions of darkness. Nevertheless, God has appointed servants who do the work of gathering at the direction of the angels.

“Adam holds keys in order to bring about every dispensation from the time of Adam down to the very end of time, but Adam didn’t live through every dispensation from the beginning to the very end of time. Therefore, although he is in possession of it and although he has a say about who was involved with it, and although he may exercise the right of dominion in the counsels of Heaven, (because he is resurrected now after all), it still requires for salvation that flesh and blood [mortal man] accept and act on the challenge of redemption” (The Holy Order, Denver Snuffer Jr., p.10, emphasis added).

          John admonishes the other angels to refrain from hurting the Earth until the servants of God are sealed, proving there is more than one servant. Still, one servant is more prominent than others. Ezekiel says one king reigns over Israel. He then provides a name to the king.

And David my servant shall be king [Aaronic, Spirit of Elias] over them, and they all shall have one shepherd. They shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them. And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant [Israel secures a covenant with the Lord], wherein your fathers have dwelled. And they shall dwell therein — even they, and their children, and their children’s children for ever [sealing power, Spirit of Elijah]. And my servant David shall be their prince [to the King of Kings] for ever [Holy Order, Spirit of Elijah, Melchizedek Priesthood fullness]” (RE Ezekiel 19:6, emphasis added).

An important transition is present in this passage. One that plays a key role in identifying an important type for these events in the Book of Mormon. It has to do with a subject I briefly addressed in my previous paper. It is the office of king. Samuel anointed both Saul and David kings over Israel. At the time Israel asked the Lord to appoint a mortal king over them, a change occurred in the Aaronic Priesthood. Before the change, Samuel was the Priest and the Lord was King over Israel. After the king was anointed, the king presided over temporal affairs including the Aaronic Priesthood high priests.

          In verse 6, David is referred to as a king, or head of the Aaronic Priesthood. When he and Israel “walk in my judgments, observe my statutes and do them, they are prepared to receive the Holy Order or Melchizedek Priesthood fullness. At that time David’s title changes from “king” to a “prince for ever,” an eternal title sealing his Priesthood and kingdom to him in time and Eternity. The title of “prince of peace” is the title Abraham sought (see RE T&C 145, Abraham 1:1).

          Melchizedek was the King of Salem, a synonym for peace.

The Hebrew is shâlêm (שׁלם), “peace.”1 Salem is used consistently throughout the Joseph Smith Translation of the Bible (see Genesis 7:14,20; Psalms 76:1), and the Book of Mormon confirms that Melchizedek was a king over the land of Salem (Alma 10:2), which may be interpreted as a land of peace. Joseph Smith said that the word salem should be correctly rendered shalom, meaning peace.2 “It is understood by many by reading [Hebrews 1:17] that Melchesedeck was king of some country or nation on the earth, but it was not so. In the original it reads king of Shaloam, which signifies king of peace or righteousness, and not of any country or nation.”3 “Salem is designed for a Hebrew term. It should be Shiloam, which signifies righteousness and peace.”4 “Since the King James Version of the New Testament comes from Greek manuscripts, the transliteration of Σαλήμ (given as Salem) in [Hebrews 1:17] is correct” (A Glossary of Gospel Terms, Salem, pp.791-792).

David moving from the title of king to the title of “prince for ever,” to the Holy Order is further supported when the concluding verse in the chapter states:

Moreover, I will make a covenant of peace [Salem, shalom, peace and righteousness, Melchizedek Priesthood]  with them [Israel]. It shall be an everlasting covenant [sealing power, Spirit of Elijah] with them [Israel]. And I will place them [land of promise], and multiply them [promise of everlasting seed, stars in Heaven, sands of the sea], and will set my sanctuary [New Jerusalem, Zion] in the midst of them for ever [sealing power, Spirit of Elijah]. My tabernacle [Temple, sacred space] also shall be with them [Israel], yea, I will be their God and they shall be my people. And the heathen [gentiles] shall know that I the Lord do sanctify Israel when my sanctuary [New Jerusalem, Zion] shall be in the midst of them for ever [sealing power] (RE Ezekiel 19:7, emphasis added).

The blessings of Abraham and the fullness of the Melchizedek Priesthood rest upon Israel following the Lord’s gathering of them.

          Joseph Smith spoke of this day several times in his discourses.

“Although David was a king [Aaronic], he never did obtain the spirit and power of Elijah and the fullness of the Priesthood [Melchizedek Priesthood fullness]; and the Priesthood that he received, and the throne and kingdom of David is to be taken from him and given to another by the name of David in the last days, raised up out of his lineage” (Smith Jr., Joseph. Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith (p. 339). Deseret Book Company).

The original king David never attained the Spirit and power of Elijah or the fullness of the greater Priesthood. This supports the thesis David’s office was Aaronic Priesthood, or the equivalent of a gentile bishop. The implication of Joseph Smith’s remarks are that the latter-day David from king David’s lineage would accomplish what his predecessor could not. He would also elevate the righteousness of Israel and establish Zion or a city of peace among them.

          Joseph Smith spoke of the day when this would be accomplished in a letter written to N.C.Saxton.

“Christ, in the days of His flesh, proposed to make a covenant with them, but they rejected Him and His proposals, and in consequence thereof, they were broken off, and no covenant was made with them at that time. But their unbelief has not rendered the promise of God of none effect: no, for there was another day limited in David, which was the day of His power; and then His people, Israel, should be a willing people;—and He would write His law in their hearts, and print it in their thoughts; their sins and their iniquities He would remember no more” (Smith Jr., Joseph. Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith (p. 14-15). Deseret Book Company. Kindle Edition.

Jesus proposed to make a new covenant with Israel which they rejected by crucifying the Savior. They were cut off following that rejection but God made promises to their righteous Patriarchal Father’s He intended to fulfill in “another day limited in David.”

“Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it. For unto us was the rest preached, as well as unto them, but the word preached did not profit them (not being mixed with faith in them that heard it). For we who have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they harden their hearts, they shall not enter into my rest. Also, I have sworn, if they will not harden their hearts, they shall enter into my rest — although the works of God were prepared (or finished) from the foundation of the world; for he spoke in a certain place of the seventh day in this way: And God did rest the seventh day from all his works. And in this place again: If they harden not their hearts, they shall enter into my rest. Seeing therefore it remains that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief, again, he limits a certain day, saying in David, Today, after so long a time, as it is said, Today, if you will hear his voice, harden not your hearts. For if Joshua had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day. There remains therefore a rest to the people of God. For he that is entered into his rest, he also has ceased from his own works, as God did from his” (RE Hebrews 1:9, emphasis added).

The day when God would fulfill His promises to the Patriarchal Fathers by blessing their posterity is referred to is “a day limited in David.” Under a latter-day David Israel would be gathered into one body, Judah and the Northern Tribes collectively referred to as Ephraim. It is the day a united Israel would be a “willing people,” and God’s laws would be written in their hearts and printed in their thoughts. Their sins and iniquities would be forgiven.”

          We gain some insight into the significance of David’s name change from king to prince for ever, in a blessing pronounced on Joseph Smith’s  father and mother.

“Thus spoke the Seer, and these are the words which fell from his lips while the visions of the Almighty were open to his view, saying:

Blessed of the Lord is my father, for he shall stand in the midst of his posterity and shall be comforted by their blessings when he is old and bowed down with years, and shall be called a prince over them, and shall be numbered among those who hold the right of Patriarchal Priesthood, even the keys of that ministry: for he shall assemble together his posterity like unto Adam; and the assembly which he called shall be an example for my father, for thus it is written of him:

Three years previous to the death of Adam, he called Seth, Enos, Cainan, Mahalaleel, Jared, Enoch and Methuselah, who were High Priests, with the residue of his posterity, who were righteous, into the valley of Adam-ondi-Ahman, and there bestowed upon them his last blessing. And the Lord appeared unto them, and they rose up and blessed Adam, and called him Michael, the Prince, the Archangel. And the Lord administered comfort unto Adam, and said unto him, I have set thee to be at the head: a multitude of nations shall come of thee, and thou art a Prince over them forever. So shall it be with my father: he shall be called a prince over his posterity, holding the keys of the patriarchal Priesthood over the kingdom of God on earth, even the Church of the Latter-day Saints, and he shall sit in the general assembly of Patriarchs, even in council with the Ancient of Days when he shall sit and all the Patriarchs with him and shall enjoy his right and authority under the direction of the Ancient of Days . . .” (Smith Jr., Joseph. Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith (pp. 41-42), emphasis added, Deseret Book Company. Kindle Edition.

Receiving the title of “prince for ever” signals the latter-day David advances from the office of king to the office of “prince for ever” reflecting reception of the sealing power and Spirit of Elijah. He joins the counsel of Patriarchal Fathers who followed Adam in attaining to this position. Those who choose not to harden their hearts experience a spiritual rebirth and adoption. They enter into the Lord’s rest by access to the blessings of Abraham through David, their Father.

          David, the “prince for ever” is no longer mentioned by his name following his ascent to the greater, Melchizedek office. Thereafter he is referred to as only, the “prince.”


Balance Between Wickedness and Righteousness Maintained by God


          Immediately following the ascent of David and his people Israel, war breaks out among the gentile nations [Battle of Gog and Magog] and the wicked begin destroying the wicked. The fullness of the Melchizedek Priesthood is the Priesthood held by Enoch. In the midst of war, pestilence and famine, Enoch is able to maintain a place of peace and rest by authority given him of God. By his word, Enoch was able to defend his city and call upon Mother Nature to defend them as well.

          Nephi saw these days when the gentiles would reject their final offer of covenant from God and begin persecuting the righteous.

“And it came to pass that the angel spake unto me, Nephi, saying, Thou hast beheld that if the gentiles repent [not harden their hearts], it shall be well with them; and thou also knowest concerning the covenants of the Lord unto the house of Israel. And thou also hast heard that whoso repenteth not must perish. Therefore, woe be unto the gentiles if it so be that they harden their hearts against the Lamb of God. For the time cometh, saith the Lamb of God, that I will work a great and a marvelous work among the children of men, a work which shall be everlasting, either on the one hand or on the other, either to the convincing of them unto peace and life eternal, or unto the deliverance of them to the hardness of their hearts and the blindness of their minds, unto their being brought down into captivity and also unto destruction, both temporally and spiritually, according to the captivity of the Devil of which I have spoken” (RE 1 Nephi 3:26, emphasis added).

The angel explains the choice the gentiles must make. If they choose to not harden their hearts and embrace the covenant with God “it will be well with them.” Hardening their hearts against the Holy One of Israel, Jesus Christ, leads to blindness in their minds, captivity and destruction.

          While the great and marvelous work begins among the gentiles, the Lord prepares to fulfill the promises He made to the Patriarchal Father’s of Israel.

“And it came to pass that when the angel had spoken these words, he said unto me, Remember thou the covenants of the Father unto the house of Israel? I said unto him, Yea. And it came to pass that he said unto me, Look and behold that great and abominable church, which is the mother of abominations, whose foundation is the Devil. And he said unto me, Behold, there are save two churches only: the one is the church of the Lamb of God, and the other is the church of the Devil. Wherefore, whoso belongeth not to the church of the Lamb of God belongeth to that great church which is the mother of abominations, and she is the whore of all the earth” (RE 1 Nephi 3:27, emphasis added).

In the past distinguishing between the church of the Lamb of God and the church of the Devil was easy. Whatever church I belong to is the church of the Lamb of God and all other churches are the church of the Devil. Fortunately the scriptures define which church is His and which are of the Devil.

“Behold, this is my doctrine: whosoever repents and comes unto me, the same is my church. Whosoever declares more or less than this, the same is not of me, but is against me. Therefore, he is not of my church.

And now behold, whosoever is of my church [those who repent and come to Christ] and endures of my church to the end, him will I establish upon my rock [revelation], and the gates of hell shall not prevail against them” (RE T&C 1, JSH 10:19-20, emphasis added).

No institutional name is given. Only a behavior. If we repent and come to Christ, enduring to the end, we are the church of the Lamb of God. If more or less is declared, not only are they the church of the Devil, but they are adversaries of Jesus Christ.

          The gentiles are busy drawing institutional lines while the Lord looks upon the hearts of the people in all institutions. To the extent an institution encourages repentance and turning to Christ, they are the church of the Lamb. The moment they go beyond those bounds, they are the church of the Devil.

          The church of the Devil is the source of altered scriptures, and false traditions that cause men to turn away from God and trust in the arm of flesh. The whore of all the Earth has dominion over the majority of theqsdf Earth. But the dominion of the church of the Lamb of God is small.

“And it came to pass that I looked and beheld the whore of all the earth, and she sat upon many waters, and she had dominion over all the earth, among all nations, kindreds, tongues, and people. And it came to pass that I beheld the church of the Lamb of God, and its numbers were few because of the wickedness and abominations of the whore who sat upon many waters. Nevertheless, I beheld that the church of the Lamb, who were the saints of God, were also upon all the face of the earth; and their dominions upon the face of the earth were small because of the wickedness of the great whore whom I saw. And it came to pass that I beheld that the great mother of abominations did gather together in multitudes upon the face of all the earth, among all the nations of the gentiles, to fight against the Lamb of God. And it came to pass that I, Nephi, beheld the power of the Lamb of God, that it descended upon the saints of the church of the Lamb [repentant gentiles, Ephraim] and upon the covenant people of the Lord [Israel], who were scattered upon all the face of the earth. And they were armed with righteousness and with the power of God in great glory” (RE 1 Nephi 3:28, emphasis added).

The church of the Lamb, those who repent and turn to Christ and Israel, those who return to the knowledge of their Patriarchal Fathers and the Lord’s covenants receive the “power of God” because of their righteousness.

This is the time David transitions from being a king to a “prince for ever.” It is when the whore of the Earth marshal’s her forces and fights against Zion in earnest. It is the time when God’s wrath is poured out on the gentiles for spurning His covenant.

          In the midst of God’s wrath being poured upon the gentiles, the Lord gathers Israel.

“And it came to pass that I beheld that the wrath of God was poured out upon that great and abominable church, insomuch that there were wars and rumors of wars among all the nations and kindreds of the earth. And as there began to be wars and rumors of wars among all the nations which belonged to the mother of abominations, the angel spake unto me, saying, Behold, the wrath of God is upon the mother of harlots, and behold, thou seest all these things. And when the day cometh that the wrath of God is poured out upon the mother of harlots — which is the great and abominable church of all the earth, whose foundation is the Devil — then at that day the work of the Father shall commence in preparing the way for the fulfilling of his covenants which he hath made to his people who are of the house of Israel” (RE 1 Nephi 3:29, emphasis added).

The gathering of Israel begins in earnest when the wrath of God is poured out upon the whore. The wrath of God consists of a flood of truth exposing the lies that bind men’s hearts and prevent them from repenting and turning to Christ.

          The Devil becomes so distracted by the destruction God’s wrath unleashes upon the unrepentant gentiles, he is too distracted to see Israel gather.

Among those who waited, however, was a man who knelt and prayed, and waited patiently for his Lord. After a great time, the Lord came to this man and took him by the hand, and led him into the pass where the great beast guarded the way. As the Lord led, however, the beast was ever occupied with attacking others, and therefore its back was turned to the Lord and the man. And so, they passed by unnoticed, safely to the top. The Lord sent the man to the fathers, who when they saw the man inquired of him, "How came you to be here and yet mortal; for the last who came here were brothers who had been slain, and you are yet alive?" And the man answered: "I waited on the Lord and He brought me here safely" (The Temple, Denver Snuffer Jr., p.15, emphasis added).

Those who repent and come to Christ are promised in that day of His wrath He establishes His people on the rock of revelation because of their righteousness.
