Pamphlet 1891 Rev. kc 42-2
"and the blood will run as high as a horse's bridle for two hundred miles."
Let us continue now with Song of Moses, the 32nd chapter of Deuteronomy, which those "who have gotten the victory over the beast" are singing in Revelation 15:3.
"From the beginning of revenges upon the enemy" means that He will start with chief leader of the enemy. I will make mine arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh; and that with the blood of the slain and of the captives, from the beginning of revenges upon the enemy.
Remember the last verse in Rev. 14 "and the blood will run as high as a horse's bridle for two hundred miles." Again, this is spiritual for the sword is the Word of God, and never forget, when Christ returns the flesh age is over,i.e. all flesh is changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, to spiritual bodies (1 Cor. 15).
So what is the conclusion of the matter?
Rejoice, Rejoice! All ye nations rejoice with His people! This day is a happy day! Rejoice, O ye nations, with His people: for He will avenge the blood of his servants, and will render vengeance to His adversaries, and will be merciful unto His land, and to His people.
God's people are no longer praying "How long?", they are rejoicing and singing "Hallelujah"! They are singing the Song of Moses, the song of victory, for He was merciful to His children while rendering vengeance to His enemies.
How appropriate it is that this Song of Moses will be sung on that day of victory.
Let us recap why:
"Because it tells of His greatness and of the proclamation of His Word and it tells the story of the plan of God, the plan of the Rock of our Salvation for His people. It tells of those would claim to be God's chosen people as taught in these latter times by the churches of Smyrna and Philadelphia, but whose rock is not our Rock for they are a perverse and crooked generation, and their vine is not of the true Vine.The Song of Moses is ended in verse 43. We return now to the 15th chapter of Revelation.
It tells of how dearly and lovingly our Father brought forth and nourished and protected His people, giving them of the fattest portions and blessings of the earth and how after all that, they turned their backs and whored after other gods, provoking our Father to jealousy. It tells of how His people would become "lo ammi", which is to say "not my people" for period of time.
It tells of how He would scatter His people abroad and they would lose their identity, no longer calling themselves of the House of Israel and in fact calling themselves gentiles. It tells of how God would allow the "teeth of beasts" and the "poison of serpents" to come upon them to chastise them, and yet through all of this our loving Father would not forsake them.
Finally it tells how in the end, in the last days, that God would render vengeance to His enemies and to the enemies of His people, that they would know that He and He alone is Sovereign, and that there is no other rock but Him. It is that Day of Vengeance, the pouring out of those 7 Last Plagues".
And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.
Along with the Song of Moses we read that the overcomers also sing the Song of the Lamb, the words of which are given to us ahead of time. Imagine that! Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.
These words are composed from various verses (see references in the Companion Bible) of the Word of the Lamb and complimentary to the victory song, the Song of Moses.
"GREAT AND MARVELOUS ARE THY WORKS,There are 8 lines to the Song of Lamb. 8 in Biblical numerics is the number of "new beginnings" and "resurrection" (see appendix 10 in the Companion Bible). And so it is that this song is sung on the 1st day of a "new era", the Millennial reign of Jesus Christ and His "zadok", by those who have just been "resurrected" to both their spiritual bodies and eternal life.
O LORD GOD, THE ALMIGHTY;
RIGHTEOUS AND TRUE ARE THY WAYS,
THOU KING OF THE NATIONS.
WHO WILL NOT FEAR, O LORD, AND GLORIFY THY NAME?
FOR THOU ALONE ART HOLY;
FOR ALL NATIONS WILL COME AND WORSHIP BEFORE THEE,
FOR THY RIGHTEOUS ACTS HAVE BEEN REVEALED." N.A.S.
Though the text reads "with precious stone pure and white" instead of "pure and white linen", either way it shows that these angels are clothed with righteous acts (remember from chapter 3 that white raiment, i.e. white clothing, is righteous acts?). And after that I looked, and, behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened:
 And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having their breasts girded with golden girdles.
Remember also from chapter four who the four beasts, the four living beings, are? They are the handsome "Zoon", the cherubims arrayed in the "standards" of Israel, who guard the throne of God. They are the ones who called John forth to the throne to take a look at the first four seals. And one of the four beasts gave unto the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of God, who liveth for ever and ever.
And now one of them gave unto the seven angels the golden vials full of the wrath of God, which we will see poured out in the next chapter.
Though we have the victory in it, our Father is not pleased to have to pour out His wrath, to execute judgment and "tough love". We are all His children from the beginning of creation, even from the first earth age, and He so wishes that all His children would love Him. And so the pouring out of His wrath shall be a solemn occasion to Him and the door to the temple shall be closed. And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.
Let us all remember that as we see His wrath poured out in the next chapter of Revelation.
To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits;
to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
