23) The Elijah Message Beatitude

THE ELIJAH MESSAGE BEATITUDE - REVELATION 14:13

     Today we conclude the series on the last day Elijah message with an unusual text that, I believe, is connected to the Elijah message.  It is the second of seven beatitudes in the book of Revelation and in it contains great assurance to those who have embraced the 3 angel's messages in the Elijah message.

I.   A blessing on "the dead who die in the Lord."
     A) "From now on" - for those who die in helping to proclaim the message
     B) There is likely martyrdom for some who proclaim the 3 angel's messages as the dragon's wrath becomes intense with the remnant.  Revelation 12:11,17

II.  
The beatitude is a summary of the gospel principles in the 3 angel's messages.  "They rest from their labors and their works follow them."
      A) You rest and work, come and abide, die and resurrect.  Matthew 11:28-30 
      B) Those who die in the Lord are represented in what Christ did.  2 Corinthians 5:14,15
      C)
They possess eternal life by faith.  1 John 5:11-13
      D) "Their works follow them."
           1) The evidence they are devoted to Jesus - Revelation 14:12
           2) They are united with heaven in God's divine purpose.  Ephesians 1:9,10; 1 Corinthians 15:24-26
