God’s Seal of Authority
©copyright 2006 Bonita M Quesinberry

What is God’s Seal, as mentioned in Revelation 7:2-3?

Note: TSaS is not responding to this question with any intent to convince anyone. That is God’s task, for He “chooses whom He will” to follow in Christ’s footsteps and to receive His Truths. The job of TSaS is to provide God’s Truths as given by His Holy Spirit and clearly set out in God’s Bible, that all who read may make an informed choice for “life or death.” God urges, “Choose life.”

SIGN: TOKEN, something indicating a fact, a MARK or symbol, to write one’s name on as in acknowledging authorship, to express, indicate or signify with a sign, points to a fact or conveys a meaning. SYN: sign, mark, token, symptom, indication, SEAL: proof of authenticity, confirmation, guarantee, pledge, confirm the truth or genuineness of a promise, marks of office and authority. ~Webster’s’ World Collegiate Dictionary

Sign, seal, mark, and token are synonymous, each used in the Bible, words meaning the same thing but not used for identical purposes or of the same design. Many signs are spoken of in the Bible, i.e. the rainbow signifying God’s promise not to ever flood the entire earth again; yet, only one sign is God’s Seal and a counterfeit of it is Satan’s Mark.

There are several worldly opinions amidst corporate Christendom as to what is God’s Seal of Authority mentioned in Revelation 7:3, though most approach it from the Mark of the Beast viewpoint without clarifying what is God’s seal—
1. “Or his number 666” will be tattooed on a person’s forehead or hand; or,
2. a microchip will be inserted beneath the skin; or,
3. special credit card with 666 on it will be issued to all who do not bear God’s Seal. None of these are the beast’s Mark, not even 666. In fact, nowhere in the Bible does it say that the Beast’s mark is 666. Determining God’s Seal will aid in discovering Satan’s Mark, which the beast has confirmed in public statements both oral and in writing as a matter of numerous validated records.

Another theory taught in only the last 15 years is based solely on two verses, Ephesians 1:13-14 and 4:30— “In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed [confirmed] with that holy Spirit of promise, which is the earnest [deposit] of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory . . . And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.”

The first passage is not saying that the Holy Spirit is God’s Seal; rather, it advises that the Holy Spirit fulfills Christ’s promise to believers of becoming anointed with one or more spiritual gifts plus the Spirit’s comforting as well as teaching: which serve as a deposit of all that believers will inherit in the “new earth.” Revelation 7:2 clearly states an “angel having the seal of the living God.” Obviously, this new theory would have the Holy Spirit being carried around by another angel. However, Ephesians 4:30 is clarified by one word:

Whereby defined as administered by. This would identify the angel in Revelation 7:2 as the Holy Spirit, Gabriel as it were. Whether corporeal (tangible) or spiritual, a seal of authority cannot be a living being; rather, a seal is administered by a living being: i.e. the President presses his Seal next to his name after signing a bill into law, the seal both validating his signature and the National Seal making the law enforceable across the USA domain. Without the seals, the laws would not be enforceable and neither would God’s Law be enforceable without His Seal, regardless of whom and how many He has chosen.

There are clues scattered throughout the Bible that lend to greater understanding of God’s “weightier matters;” in this case, the most applicable are “On earth, as it is in heaven,” and “I have given similitudes on earth of that which is in heaven.” Similitudes are earthly things that in tangible form—seen and touched— resemble heavenly things that are in spiritual form— not seen or touched, instead those spiritual things are noted in human behaviour. With this in mind, we are led to discover what, according to mankind’s laws, makes any seal of authority valid and legally binding: the same proof applies spiritually; as will be shown later.

Any Seal of Authority must:
1. Cite the name of the author who formed the law or laws; and,
2. Cite the domain over which those laws are enforced; and,
3. Cite reason author has the right to enforce such laws; and,
4. Seal must be unique, not another like it in the world or universe, if spiritual. With respect to the US Presidential and National Seals noted above, there are no others like them in this world. Even national seals differ from any other of the world’s nations. God’s Seal of Authority is unique, no other like it in this world or in the universe or in heaven.

God stated His Seal of Authority in Exodus 31:13-17 and Ezekiel 20:12, 20— “Keep thou the Sabbath as a sign between thee and Me that I AM the Lord thy God”— the same sign over which Jesus said He also is Lord, meaning He applies the same Seal to His sheep as His Father applies to the Jews; and, Christ exhibited the Seal by His obedience to God’s Twelve Precepts, omitting none. The Exodus and Ezekiel passages belie new teachings that the Holy Spirit, a living being, is God’s Seal: instead, it is the Holy Spirit carries the Seal and who administers God’s Seal, to-wit: a person sealed is detected by his or her behaviour revealing the seal, obedience to the Fourth Precept.

Exodus and Ezekiel refer us back to Exodus 20:8-11 as well as Deuteronomy 5:12-14, where we find that God’s Seal meets every requirement for a valid sign of authority: “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour and do all thy work: but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger [heathen] that is within thy gates: for in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it [made it holy].”

Other O.T verses declare the 7th day Sabbath perpetual, “even in the new earth and heavens.” In fact, all 12 of God’s Precepts are declared perpetual, to stand forever; as noted in various Bible books including Psalms. Twelve? Yes, God’s Law begins with the two Royal Laws of Love first stated in the Old Testament— contrary to man’s tradition— inasmuch as no one can obey the Ten without first loving: love compels obedience.

1. Author of Two + Ten Commandments: Lord thy God
2. Domain of Enforcement: heaven, earth, sea, and all that in them is
3. Reason for power to Enforce: God made heaven, earth, sea, and all that in them is
4. Unique Seal Design:
Seventh day Sabbath, sundown Friday to sundown Saturday— Unique, Webster’s Dictionary defines as “having no like or equal;” as the Bible says of those who bear God’s Seal, “a peculiar people.” Peculiar, Webster’s definition is “unique, of an exclusive group.” Indeed. God defines His “exclusive group” as His chosen people the Jews. Jesus defines this “exclusive group” as His small flocks of once heathens, whom God chose for Him and says they are greatly outnumbered but have the Power of God upon them.

There is not another sign, seal, mark or token mentioned in the Bible that fulfills the requirements of a valid spiritual Seal of Authority. Neither is there another seal in the universe like this one. How so? A 2009 “Prophecy’s Extra Oil” included a scientific report proving God’s existence/signature in all things, including our moon thus the universe. Since He is the Creator of all, then His Seal is the same for all who accept God as their God and His Son as their Saviour.

Look at the day of worship for various single-God religions in the world— only one was in its beginning and remains today Saturday, Judaism (there are pitiful few Christian religions embracing His Sabbath); other religions took Friday and a great number took Sunday in homage to Papal Rome; the latter with “time” marked from midnight to midnight, contrary to God’s definition of “a day is from even to even.” For the purposes of His and Christ’s Sabbath, the day is sundown Friday to sundown Saturday~~ a new day begins at sunset, for the world began in darkness and God divided it with light.

Friday and Sunday fulfill Daniel’s warning that “they hope to change times and law,” a clear distinction identifying Satan’s synagogues of whatsoever denomination or religion and his Mark, which mark does not meet the criteria necessary to declare it a valid Seal of Authority: therefore and according to God’s Word, Satan’s reign on earth is temporary, in nature and fact, and he plagiarized God’s Law by teaching it altered in all his synagogues.

Many denominations teach Saturday as exclusively Jewish and Sunday as exclusively Christian; albeit, all theologians agree there is no scriptural validation for Sunday, its origins in pagan worship instituted into Christianity by Revelation’s great whore 200 years after, then 348 years after Christ ascended: after 200 years a civil law, at 348 years declared ecclesiastic law. Other Judaic-like religions, i.e. Islam etc, established Friday.

God did not set His Sabbath exclusively for or by way of the Jews. He sanctified it at creation for all humans that would serve Him as their only God, Genesis 2:1-3, to clearly identify who belongs to God and, later, His Christ: both Jew and Gentile. Christianity never was to be separate from the Judaic faith; that is, the part embracing Christ as God’s Son, often referred to as Messianic Jews. It was and is the Jewish faith that was and is offered to Gentiles, as stated clearly in the Old Testament and offered to heathens even in those days— “to the stranger (heathen) who obeys my Sabbath I will give names better than sons and daughters.”

Many teach that Jesus did away with God’s Doctrine, specifically the fourth Precept, by hanging on the cross; thus they teach only 9 of His 10 Statutes yet state that only the Royal Laws now apply: totally illogical IF Christ did away with all the Statutes. After all, Jesus said “Upon these two hinge all the Law,” which according to their teachings would have placed God’s Doctrine of Twelve on the cross; after all, God first stated the Royal Law in the Old Testament, Jesus merely repeated them to the people as a reminder of what it takes to become obedient.

Detractors make their assumption on the fact the Sabbath Law, God’s fourth precept, also appears in the midst of Moses’ Ordinances— specifically the ordinances of Sacrifice and Oblation including circumcision, the only laws Christ revoked. Paul told us that it was those ordinances symbolically hung on Christ’s cross in the form of His body sacrificed and offered as payment for humanity’s “past sins.”

A Seal of Authority must be impressed upon all laws for them to be enforceable, whether on earth or in heaven, whether Statutes/Precepts or Ordinances; the latter always short-term by nature. The term Law is used interchangeably in the Bible to indicate Statutes or Ordinances, preceding or subsequent verses clarifying of which laws are being spoken.

Just because temporary laws are revoked does not remove a Seal of Authority from all other laws still in force. If that were the case, then all of man’s statutes and ordinances would not be enforceable today AND none of God’s Statutes or Ordinances would still stand, including even the ordinances of health and Passover and . . . Revocation removes the Seal only from the specific laws cancelled, rendering only those unenforceable: both on earth and in heaven.

Extra Oil Update 25: Unaware Aware Blasphemy

Prophecy’s Extra Oil Update 25: Unaware Aware Blasphemy

©2009copyright Bonita M Quesinberry

News 10/21-10/23: 2.5 days in the world
Yep, there was a lot going on in the last 2.5 days; but, TSaS has elected to not report any global news in this issue about upcoming annual holidays. News has been more of the same, events escalating as usual: earthquakes, typhoons, hurricanes, flooding rains, tornados, child abductions/murder, numerous deaths in aircraft/trains, wars/riots, etc.

CRITICAL: this issue reveals Truth that affects our relationship with God and Christ, as well as how a person commits unaware or aware acts of unforgivable blasphemy of the Holy Spirit. This will bring the reader to awareness, at which time he or she must make a choice for God or for the world. “How long halt ye between two opinions? Either you are for God or you are not.” Time is short.

TRUTH GATHERING, an exhaustive AKJV Topical Bible of all critical-to-salvation subjects, ©annotation copyright 1998 Bonita M Quesinberry, excerpt Chapter 10: Christ’s Birth, Death and Resurrection

Well over two hundred years after Christ ascended to heaven, what appeared to be His church arbitrarily established December 25th as the day to celebrate our Saviour’s birth: His resurrection celebrated on Easter, a floating holiday having occurred April 23rd in the year 2000. Where did these traditions come from? Are they Christian? More importantly, are they acceptable to God? Dissecting God’s Word sheds a contrary light on corporate Christendom’s festivals and should cause every serious Christian, determined to please God and Christ, to question denominational pulpits they have relied on for Biblical truths.

Most notably, Christians need to be aware that condemnation will pour out upon all entities guilty of instituting into Christ’s church such paganistic, idolatrous festivals. This applies equally to those Christians who gain the truth, yet continue to observe manmade commandments, traditions and festivals—regardless of their claim in Jesus’ honor. In His opinion, such professed Christians render lip service, “flattering lips” as it were: He does not know them. See TRUTH GATHERING chapter: “Fatal Lip Service.”

Still, as the title of this chapter implies, the identity of the perpetrator Papal Rome, and her daughters’ participation, will not be discussed here. We begin with the conception and ultimate birth of Messiah, Jesus Christ our Saviour. Apostle Luke renders a very concise record for examination and it is logical to base dates on the ancient Jewish calendar, which is the first calendar. Therefore, it is prudent to note that the first month of the Gregorian year is January, as opposed to the Hebrew first month of the year September. With this in mind, we begin Luke’s testimony. Please note for the purposes of this reprint, scripture quotes are contained between * * * * * asterisks, writer notes unbound.

* * * * * Luke 1:26-27,30-31,35-37, 38-42—And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, to a virgin espoused [betrothed, engaged] to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.

And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren. For with God nothing shall be impossible.

And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her. And Mary arose in those days, and went into the hill country with haste, into a city of Juda; and entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth. And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was fill with the Holy Ghost: and she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. * * * * *

Luke reveals that Mary conceived Jesus in the sixth month (Adar) of the Jewish calendar, the Gregorian February. Luke further enlightens of Mary’s pregnancy having extended full-term without incident, placing Christ’s birth sometime in (Cheshvan of the Jewish calendar) October of the Gregorian calendar. The first year AD was meant to be the year of Christ’s birth but, due to error, missed it by 2-1/2 to 3 years. Jesus was 33 and 7 months at His death in April AD 31, thus it is proper to place His birth on or about October in the year between BC 4-1/2 to 3 (calendar matching provided herein).

* * * * * Luke 2:6-11—And so it was, that, while they were there [in Bethlehem], the days were accomplished that she [Mary] should be delivered [give birth]. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. And there were shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. * * * * *

Luke also chronicles that tax assessing was what prompted Joseph to take his pregnant wife to Bethlehem, further confirming an October birth inasmuch as tax collection followed the second harvest of any given year. October is the second month of harvest time and the second month of the Hebrew new year. Also, shepherds still were in the fields with their flocks when Gabriel appeared to them. This too would be normal since October is autumn in Israel (not winter, December [Tebet] or January [Shebat]). History reveals sheep would not have been in the fields during winter months.

It was Joseph and Mary’s custom to travel with their family to Jerusalem every year for the two-day Passover festival, which begins March 31st (Nisan). Christ was twelve at the time His parents discovered Jesus missing three days into their return home from such a trip. Remember, Jesus was later found in the Temple. He told Mary and Joseph that He “was about my Father’s work.” This occurred about April (Iyar) 6th, AD 9 —recall the calendar discrepancy in the AD year of birth, thus this event was not in AD 12.

Luke 3:23 reveals that Jesus was about to turn 30 when he was baptized by John then spirited away by Satan for 40 days of temptation. It was following this event that Christ’s ministry began. We may conclude: His ministry began either with baptism—about Sept. AD 27—or following the 40 days—approximately late Oct. AD 27.

Bible timeline shows Christ’s ministry as 3-1/2 years to the point of death—see Daniel c.9 regarding 70-prophetic weeks, 490-literal years— allowing for restoration of the road to and the city of Jerusalem and building the temple: then the Messiah’s ministry would begin at the onset of the 70th week—or last 7 years of the 490—and ind in the midst of the 70th week or 3-1/2 literal years.

Christ’s death occurred exactly 486-1/2 years following the onset of road, city and temple construction. It is appropriate to place Jesus’ death in April AD 31—from point of baptism and just prior to His thirty-fourth birthday. This is in harmony with the fact Jesus and His Disciples shared Passover before His arrest.

Luke 24:52-56 confirms April (Iyar) AD 31, informing us that Christ was placed in a tomb before Sabbath came on, which is sunset Friday, following several events having begun with Passover—March (Nisan) 31st through April (Iyar) 1st. On Wednesday, April 1st, the last day of Passover, Judas betrayed Jesus for thirty pieces of silver. Late on Thursday night (the 4th watch), April 3rd, Judas arrived with soldiers and Jesus was taken prisoner. By the next morning, Friday April 4th, Christ had been condemned to death, sent to Pilate, who released Barnabas, then Jesus was hung on a cross.

Luke 23:44-46 tells us Jesus died at about the ninth hour. God’s time is reckoned as a night being from sunset to sunrise and daytime being from sunrise to sunset, with a 24-hour day determined as sunset-even to sunset-even. Therefore, if we assume the sun rose at about 6AM, then Christ’s death would have been on Friday afternoon, April 4th, at about 3PM. Luke additionally advises that Jesus was placed in the tomb before sunset, the onset of Sabbath, April 5th. This is reasonable considering that criminals were not allowed to hang until sunset: it was against the law for a body to hang overnight. Christ died at about 3PM, at which time counsellor Joseph obtained permission to claim Christ’s body.

With this data, comprehend that Christ obeyed the Sabbath even in death, for He remained in His grave until dawn of the first day of the week: Sunday, April 6th AD 31.  Jesus then arose and was seen by at least 500 people over the next 40 days, after which He ascended to heaven. His ascension would have occurred on or about May (Sivan) 15th, AD 31. In each date citation, a Hebrew calendar is used specifically: it is the only one to agree Biblically. For instance: the Gregorian fifth month is May, which equates to the Hebrew ninth month of Sivan.

Compare the two calendars below, excusing the lines and dots needed to keep the comparison aligned in web-format. Note: only religious holidays show with each month appropriate to the calendar. One reflects God’s festivals for His people and the Gregorian reflects pagan holidays adopted by Christian-professing Sunday-keeping denominations:

RESULTS:

1) Mary conceived Jesus sometime in February BC 4;

2) Jesus was born approximately early to late October BC 3 (based on typical gestation)

3) Christ began His ministry on or about His 30th birthday, or October AD 27;

4) Jesus was crucified on Friday, April 3rd, AD 31, pronounced dead at about 3PM at the age of 33 years and 7 months;

5) Before sunset April 3rd, AD 31 Jesus was placed in a rich man’s tomb where He remained through Saturday Sabbath, April 5th and Sunday night April 6th AD 31;

6) At dawn on Sunday, April 6th, AD 31 Christ arose from the grave and was seen by many people for 40 days;

7) The 40th day, about May 15th AD 31 Jesus ascended to heaven with host of first fruits.

Since the whole Bible is about God, the Hebrews— Judah and Israel— Christ, and adopted Hebrews— pagan Gentiles—­ then it is most appropriate to discern these dates in accordance with ancient Hebrew calendars. After all, that is the time in which these records were written and events occurred. Biblically, there would have been no other calendar. Realistically? Yes, there were pagan calendars even then, but to use one of those would be to discern God’s Word by the world: instead of spiritually.

Note: Hebrew calendars are used today in Orthodox and Christian Jews observing Jewish festivals. It remains the same as from the beginning. Therefore, the Hebrew September is the same September we recognize. It just happens to be the Hebrew’s first month of the year, whereas a Gregorian calendar begins with January.

Using a Gregorian calendar to decipher God’s word causes interpretative error and no harmony will be found between verse and historical data. For instance, Mary would have conceived in June BC 4, based on a Gregorian calendar, therefore placing Christ’s birth sometime February BC 3. Unfortunately, this would skew all other dates set out above.

Passover is March 30 through April 1, according to ancient and modern practices. Using a Gregorian calendar would not place Jesus at the Passover festival leading to His arrest. At 31 years, 7 months at death, it would mean Christ died September 5th AD 33. The only Jewish festival in September is the Feast of Weeks. The gospels state clearly: Christ and His Apostles shared the Passover meal, then Jesus was arrested early next morning. As El might say: to use a Gregorian calendar is to corrupt clues He provided.

As Christians, adopted into God’s Jewish Tree, we are subject to the same obedience. This means avoiding anything even slightly resembling evil. Thus, we can eliminate all holidays shown in a Gregorian or other non-Hebrew calendar. As adopted children, we may also eliminate most other Jewish ordinance festivals shown.

The only ordinances Christ commands of Gentiles and Jews are:  1) confession of sins; 2) baptism by water; 3) faith of and belief in Jesus as our Redeemer and Son of God; 4) obedience to the Father’s Doctrine, the Ten Commandments that depend on the two Royal Laws of love; 5) baptism of the Holy Ghost— to those who obey. Additionally, 6) work good works as well as use gifts of the Spirit to benefit the brethren; and, 7) perform, as often as we choose, the Lord’s Supper—Passover—include washing our brethren’s feet as a symbol of service, instead of being served: in remembrance of Christ’s sacrifice.

To observe any other holidays as well as establishing a counterfeit birthday for Christ, is a wicked example of vanity, idolatry and pagan worship. Whatever excuse we use to justify such behavior is exactly why Jesus said, “You do me lip service and I never knew you.” For example, pagan artifacts used to decorate— i.e. Christmas tree— or observing a pagan holiday— i.e. Christmas and Easter— and dedicating it to the Lord. It is an abomination to God and is counted as “flattering lips” heavily couched in pagan idolatry.

One other note, Bethlehem is located in the hilly or mountainous region of Israel. In winter months, beginning in December, temperatures get as low as 42 degrees at night. This is not so for previous months, especially concerning October, which remains very warm. Additionally, the Gospels do not indicate freezing winter with snow on the ground at Christ’s birth—a familiar Christmas scene with which we’ve all grown up. All these little subtleties grouped together cause the world to believe lies and walk after Satan unaware, guilty by virtue of not checking out the facts for one’s self.

Also, consider portraits of Christ rendered by various artists over the centuries. They paint quite a beautiful being and tout Him as 6-feet tall, slender and blue-eyed: which might seem in keeping with Papal Rome’s Shroud of Turin, recently debunked. Might such beauty be a contributor to society’s obsession with physical beauty? Scriptures describe Jesus otherwise. Long before Christ’s birth, He was described as “marred (deformed, ugly) more than any man, small of stature, his body without form; nothing beautiful about him to cause people to follow him; people turned away from looking at his marred, deformed black body and disfigured face; a man of sorrows and grief and pain.

Read  “TODAY, JESUS SAID, LET ME INTRODUCE MYSELF”. One might be surprised by what the Bible reveals compared to what preachers and theologians teach.

The irony of the facts presented hereinabove: Theologians throughout the ages always have maintained that Christ was born sometime in October. Christians need to ask themselves: Why, then, are we taught that no one knows when Jesus was born? Recall: God said, “One lie renders the whole a lie.” If Satan convinces the world of just one lie, he succeeded in achieving its damnation— IF we do not seek God’s Word personally.

Would you obey the laws of man or the laws of God? Surely, we ought to obey God.

You might want to read what Thanksgiving, Halloween, Christmas and Easter really are and why they insult the Lord as an abomination to Him. The website below points out clearly that pagan rituals are alive and well and they rejoice that professing Christians share their blasphemous festivals. * * * * *

* * * * * How can true Christians observe these holidays while claiming honor to God and Jesus Christ? It is an abomination to our Father Creator. It is unacceptable to place the ONE TRUE GOD and HIS SON within a framework of false gods. This is exactly what Jesus meant by “flattering lips” and “creating images of God after corruptible men:” this and much more. Warning! He declared of those who do such things, “I do not know you.” Even the Christmas tree is of pagan origin and well described in: * * * * *

Jeremiah 10:2-4,~5,8—Thus saith the Lord, learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not. They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne [carried], because they cannot go [by themselves]. But they [the heathen] are altogether brutish and foolish: the stock is a doctrine of vanities [idolatry].

* * * * * Several years ago, a Sabbatarian youth minister spoke of a personal experience on his job. It was nearing Christmas and one employee— most verbal about her Wiccan beliefs and Druid ties and very much aware of the minister’s Christian faith— asked him: “If you believe in God and in Christ, then why do you celebrate our festivals?”

Now, she assumed he did so because, like all the other employees, he did not work on those days. Of course, hers was an erroneous assumption. How could he work if the company was closed and locked for the holidays? Fortunately, the young man was able to reply, “I don’t celebrate any pagan festivals like Thanksgiving, Halloween, Christmas, Easter or personal birthdays to honor any man.”

Thanksgiving? Yes, its origins are Celtic: originally an 8-day festival to honor harvest gods and brought to the United States by the first settlers. Nevertheless, the youth minister was ONE witness in God’s favour. Sadly, many of us might work with Wiccan and Druid followers unaware. It is by what we say and/or do that we witness for or against God to those who are paganism’s prey.

Several years ago, a well-known actress serving a short stint as a talk show host presented a program for Halloween: her guests a man and woman, both proud Wiccan members. Near the show’s end, the hostess asked, “What do you think about Christians observing your festivals?” She referenced not only Halloween but Christmas and Easter as well.

The woman said, “It proves to me that I’ve chosen the right religion because it’s obviously the world’s oldest religion. Else why would Christians share our rituals.” This applies to Sunday observance as well, a day dedicated to their sun god: venerable day of the sun.

The Wiccan witch revealed a multitude of Christians unwittingly witnessing against God. Alas, unaware or aware, each will be found just as guilty before our Father; His Truth is out there and in His Holy Bible. As for witchcraft being the oldest religion: this pen begs to differ. After all, worship of God the Creator began with Adam and Eve. The most important question to ask self: “What kind of witness for God and Christ am I, both in word and deed? And, what am I going to do about it?”

A R M A G E D D O N !  —  GOD’S TRUTH
©copyright 2002 annotations Bonita M Quesinberry

Question: The final battle between good and evil is to be fought where and when?

Theologians and pastors cite the “where” at Armageddon, ancient Canaan plains of the ancient city Megiddo, about 60-70 miles north of Jerusalem on the banks of Kishon River near Mt. Tabor and the Sea of Galilee: the former domain of Hebrew tribe Issachar. The so-called Bible experts rather vaguely claim it will occur “when” Christ returns.

Their answers are based on one scripture found in the whole of the Bible, Revelation, and believed by most Christians because that erroneous interpretation is offered by those taught in man’s seminaries: blind, deaf. Jesus said, “Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings is praise (Truth) perfected.” Only the Holy Spirit teaches them.

Having cited man’s opinion, and without including here extensively researched historical data or paraphrasing scriptures, this brief rendering offers Almighty God’s definitive response regarding both man’s view as well as Ishi’s own absolutes. FYI: Ishi is the name by which God will be called in the restored earth. It is Hebrew for husband. Contrary to man’s version, many verses throughout the Bible do interpret this particular prophecy. For the sake of brevity, not all references are provided. However, do take the time to look up and read the scriptures referenced herein.

Truth Seekers and Speakers is solely about the Bible to interpreting itself, TSaS often providing applicable historical data as required for clarity. Note: neither Revelation nor any book of the Bible is necessarily written chronologically, as Theologians and pastors teach today; especially regarding Revelation. That hint and studying the Bible according to God’s method are vital to receiving God’s interpretation, to-wit: Bible decoding the Bible— in plain English. Readers might want to review “How, Why and Who to Trust” God’s study method. Four hints: 1) rightly divide the Word; 2) “What was in the beginning is today, what is today will be tomorrow, and what is tomorrow was in the beginning;” 3) “On earth, as it is in heaven;” and, 4) “I have given you similitudes (likenesses) on earth of everything in heaven.”

While Rev. c.16 is factual, it does not remedy our question; rather, it refers to time of redemption, which is much different from the final battle— the utter destruction of evil and cleansing of the earth with purging fire. It should be noted that in no way does this passage or any book of the Bible state that the battle WILL occur at the time and place of the Rev. c.16 gathering, to-wit: Armageddon. It merely shows us that the assembling takes place at or near the ancient plains of Armageddon for the battle of “that great day of the Lord.” That day refers only to Christ’s return, not the battle, as will be shown herein.

FYI: “As it is on earth, so it is in heaven:” In earthly murder trials, after viewing a preponderance of evidence, a judgment then is rendered of either innocent or guilty, at which time the innocent immediately are set free and the guilty returned to jail. Yet, another hearing is conducted to determine the penalty for guilty verdicts— for our purposes, death. However, death sentences never are executed simultaneous to sentencing or even shortly thereafter: i.e. some murderers still sit on death row 20 or 30 years after a decree of guilty. And, so it is with God’s court of law.

Mankind’s trial began in 1844, Philadelphia era, when God’s hidden-in-the-wilderness Truth was revealed to the world one last time, at which time all people had opportunity to accept God’s truths by their demonstration of obedience or remain disobedient: each generation hence 1844 judged and sealed accordingly before their first death. Judgment and sealing ended in 1991, thus opened the last church age Laodecia— an era Jesus said will be short compared to the previous six church periods. The trumpet heralding this last age was an extremely loud “Desert Storm,” the first war ever to be televised 24/7.

Christ’s return metaphorically represents that second court hearing to set the penalty above mentioned, thus He arrives with man’s sentences: whether it be life eternal as evidenced by meeting Him in the air, or whether it be death as evidenced by being left behind dead ath if still living when He arrives—sentence is a second death for all those not in the Book of Life: carried out at later date. An incredible volume of scripture on this premise begs a question: What does happen the day and hour Christ comes in the clouds?

Revelation 16:12-14,16 ~~ v.15 interrupts these 4 verses. The 4 go together to reveal Lucifer gathering his angels and human minions for what he teaches is the coming final battle with God over the dominion of mankind, earth and heavens. Thus, it is Lucifer who set the battle at Armageddon, which timing of assembling is noted in Luke 21:20 (Feb. 1991 Desert Storm—Holy Lands and Middle East surrounded by UN forces to this day).

It behooves us to avoid a perception of God calling them to either battle or this specific location: Holy Lands in general. Other scripture will disprove such theory. V.14 refers to “that great day of God Almighty,” DAY being an announcement clue for Christ’s living flocks hoping for His quick arrival in the midst of earth’s utter chaos. Verse 16 says, “he gathered them.” Note “he” is not capitalized; therefore, the reference is to the entity directing “the spirits of devils” in verse 14. Other verses will show that the “spirits of devils” gather armies in error and untimely to the Middle East. (Isaiah 9:5; 54:15-16)

Revelation 16:15,17-21— Continuing from above, v.15 is inserted in the midst of Lucifer’s gathering as an announcement to Christ’s sheep: by this marshalling of kings (world’s armies) we are to understand Jesus is about to “come in the clouds to take up His flock to meet Him in the air” (see also: Matthew 24:30-31,36; Luke 21:20).

Another sign of Christ’s quick return: “When you see the Abomination of Desolation, as Daniel spoke of, standing in this holy place, then flee to the mountains and look for me in the clouds.” Details are in “Pure Organic Logic.” The Abomination of Desolation was filmed in Jerusalem in 1993 and 2001, “where he ought not to be:” Pope John Paul II.

The harlot daughters teach today that this has not occurred because “he” is an unknown man, not yet on the scene, is to be seen in the holy temple they insist the Jews must rebuild: impossible. Jesus and Apostles had just left the temple and were walking in the city when Jesus made that statement. Timing is everything: there is no holy temple today, rightly predicted by Daniel to never be rebuilt. Logic: seen in Holy City of Jerusalem.

Another sign: “the children shall rise up lawless.” Everywhere, kids are breaking laws of the land and God’s Law, their violence greatly intensifying since 2001. For children to timely rise up lawless, some entity called them to do so. The entity was revealed when Pope John Paul II was on his deathbed in April 2005: the Vatican square inexplicably filled with thousands of almost exclusively young people. When told, he instructed his aid to send word to them, “I called you and you have come.”

— Revelation v.17, 20-21 picks back up with events that occur as Christ crosses our skies and the devastation following in His wake while taking up his sheep. This shows the seventh vial being poured out behind Jesus as He reaps His harvest. (Genesis 1:2; Isaiah 24:1-5,20-22; 34:2-3; Jeremiah 26:32-33; Matthew 13:41-42,49-50; Psalm 37:10,38; 110:5-6; II Thessalonians 1:7-10)

Special note on v.19: Babylon (the great mother whore) was divided into 3 false prophet divisions centuries ago, so the first line of v.19 serves to identify Great Babylon— her divisions being pagan, papal, protestant. Here, God simply wants us to know that He has not forgotten their abominations and the affect they have had on His sheep, for which the three today are being rewarded with reputations badly suffering; later to be re-rewarded with utter destruction. The passage then flashes back to a scene of destruction on old earth as up ahead Christ’s sheep are redeemed from both grave and living: the Elect.

God’s interpretation of Revelation 20:1-9,12-15— The entire chapter speaks only of Christ taking up His sheep followed by the metaphoric chaining or imprisonment of Lucifer: the literal, he is left alive on a desolate earth populated with dead humans and from which he cannot escape for the duration of our gift received of a 1000 years in heaven. Fitting first retribution for Satan having tormented humans for 6000 years.

The chain symbolizes Satan’s inability to ever enter heaven again, which originally was established in Rev. 12:8-9 and which occurred in about BC 538: a reminder that Lucifer does not have the power to leave earth. Genesis 1:2, and other passages, clarify that Revelation’s “bottomless pit” means earth void of life and light. The first part of Rev. 20:10 applies to this time frame, whereas the remainder is a flashback to events having occurred at redemption; thus, “tormented day and night for ever and ever” relates to the 1000 years feeling like forever to those wicked, tormented souls who never sleep.

We are shown what happens at the close of the 1000 years: Christ and His warriors return to earth, the wicked dead are resurrected— Rev. 14:17-18, grapes represent the wicked— and Lucifer immediately deceives them for three months— a season— into believing God can be defeated. Satan then gathers them outside old Jerusalem, where Christ and His saints are camped. This is God’s for the time and place of final battle— not even near the plains of Armageddon. There will be no battle at all, per Isaiah regarding this event. But, of the location God is more specific, which should lend spiritual clarity.

Joel 3:11-15— Valley of Jehoshaphat, valley of decision/judgment: where God carried out ancient rulings— today Kidron Valley. Valley of Jehoshaphat (Kidron) lies east of Mt. Zion and west of Jerusalem. The valley is outside Jerusalem’s east portal called Dung Gate, the only exit through which garbage and human waste were to be removed from the ancient city. It is that valley in which God historically executed first death sentences upon those persistent in disobedience and others for having harmed His chosen people.

Joel confirms this location for the final destruction of all that is evil, filthy and wicked, inasmuch as v.17-18 follow the execution with a description of new Jerusalem as set out in Revelation 21:1-6. It is only after the complete purging of evil that a New Jerusalem (Psalm 37:20), wherein God and Jesus ARE the temple, comes down out of heaven and God’s Chosen and Christ’s saints now inherit a restored earth and its riches. (Isaiah 26:14)

We have God’s opinion. Where: Valley of Jehoshaphat; When: following the sheep’s’ 1000 years reign in heaven with Christ. That 1000 years begs another question: “Why a 1000 years? Why not just do it all when Christ returns?” The answer is given in God’s Holy Word: that 1000 years will be earth’s Sabbath rest, during which time she shall lie fallow— unable to support life— because mankind “did not give earth Sabbath rests every seven years,” as God ordered. There are seven days in man’s week, while earth’s week is 1000 years for each weekday. Thus, she was to labor for 6000 years, then have her Sabbath rest the seventh 1000 years. 6000 years has virtually expired today.

Incredible logic and absolute justice is found in God’s Word unmarred by mankind, undeniably better than any penalty humans could devise. The perfect retribution is to have Satan left on a dead world littered with rotting, stinking bodies from one end of earth to the other as well as the unopened graves of his previously deceased followers: all for 1000 years of “weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth.” No one to torment, no one to tempt, no one to torture, no one to follow him, no one to do his biding… no one at all, not even his fallen demonic army. How awful that will be for Satan, who has been so busy for 6000 years tormenting and torturing mankind. (Obadiah v.3-4; Amos 4:10)

Our courts would do as well by eliminating death sentences; for how much better than a murderer should have to live confined all his/her natural life while remembering what put them there. In the end, what better place to destroy evil garbage than outside Jerusalem’s Dung Gate in the valley of judgment: where God roars out of Mt. Zion utterly purging evil by an all consuming “fire from heaven.” Only then, does He restore earth as Eden: where we dwell forever in the Lord’s magnificent Light! Praise the Lord!

‘Beware Ye Double Minded’ © 2003 Bonita M Quesinberry, response to TSaS member query from Manya of California: “In James 1:8, scripture tells us that a double minded man is unstable in all his ways. Since all sin and fall short of God’s glory doesn’t that apply to all?” — solution verses from A.D. 1611 Authorized King James Version Bible

(James 1:5-8) If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth [scolds] not [for asking]; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double-minded man is unstable in all his ways.

TSaS begins with Webster’s New World Dictionary, Collegiate Edition, to determine the definition of double minded: this practice aids better understanding of God’s Word.

DOUBLE MINDED: adj. Undecided in mind; vacillating. VACILLATE: v.i. 1. to sway to and fro; waver; totter; stagger. 2. to fluctuate. 3. to waver in mind; show indecision; be irresolute. SYN: see hesitate. HESITATE: v.i. 1. feel unsure; pause or delay in acting, choosing or deciding; waver; hence. 3. to be reluctant; not be sure that one should. Implies a delay signifying indecision or reluctance; waver suggests especially a holding back or hesitating after a course or decision has been adopted; vacillate implies a shifting back and forth in a decision.

In reviewing James, found are the words wavering, tossed like waves of the sea, which fit the above definition of to and fro as well as back and forth— for and against— and double-minded. While James specifically refers to seeking God’s wisdom, God’s Word always is much broader than the obvious: for, overall, a double minded Christian is one who appears to live God’s requirements yet, at the same time, fails to live all of it, thus still living in sin; validating the latter behaviour with various excuses— i.e. “I don’t believe that’s really required anymore,” OR “Well, my church doesn’t teach that,” OR “Well, we all sin. It says so right there in the Bible. It’s human nature. That’s why we have the grace of Jesus,” OR “God understands that I can’t help it.”

Indeed, God does understand; for such contradictory actions directly relate to Revelation 3:15-17, speaking of this last church age of Laodicea in which we now live, together with Revelation 13:16— I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art LUKEWARM, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked. And he [Lucifer] causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to RECEIVE a [LUCIFER’S] MARK [seal, sign, token] IN THEIR RIGHT HAND, OR IN THEIR FOREHEADS.

Having referred to Satan’s mark symbolically being in the hand or the forehead, we must include Revelation 7:3— Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have SEALed the SERVANTS OF our GOD IN THEIR FOREHEADS.

Add to these the fact the Bible is written not for the world, rather only for God’s chosen of Israel and Christ’s chosen sheep: the church. These marks are symbolic, demonstrated by a person’s behaviour. Those with the seal of God upon their forehead completely fulfill Revelation 12:17~ — Which obey the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Those who bear the beast’s mark either seemingly fulfill Revelation 12:17, yet their actions deny, therefore the mark is in the hand to symbolize action as opposed to total belief— in other words, they vow belief but actions say otherwise. See? Even God says, “Actions speak louder than words”. OR, they blatantly do not fulfill Revelation 12:17, thus demonstrating the mark in the forehead: behaviour matching no true belief.

The hand, as noted, implies a Christian appearance and a claim for Jesus yet certain behaviours do not live up to such claims: “a form of godliness but lacking the power thereof” and “even the demons profess Jesus.” These people fail to abide by ALL of God’s doctrine, usually living part of His canon according to the Bible and the remainder according to denominational false teachings: ancient Israel’s errors all over again.

The forehead denotes a person lacking Christian behaviour altogether and/or laying no claim to God, Jesus, and Christianity. These utterly reject God either in blatant wicked behaviour—violating El’s Law as desired— or by claiming to be atheistic or agnostic. Certainly many atheists and agnostics might well live up to certain moral codes similar to those of God’s. Alas, they do so strictly by laws of the land— which is true legalism—­ as opposed to doing so for our Father because of a belief in and love for Him and His Christ as well as trusting that obeying His doctrine is in our best interest.

Now, it should be apparent that double mindedness might occur amidst two different groups within the church: cold and lukewarm. Obviously, the hot are those members who are on fire for the Lord, have the faith of and in Jesus, believe He is the Son of God, obey ALL of God’s commandments, and teach others to do the same, as noted in Isaiah 8:16,20 paraphrased: “Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples. They speak only my testimony and teach only my law, because there is light in them.” Therefore, double mindedness does not apply to the hot.

Cold are those confused; but because they are cold, they actively seek warmth: as it were, God’s wisdom and knowledge. Being cold denotes this person believes, yet distinctly feels as though something is missing in his or her walk with the Lord. The hot can aide in bringing this person fully into El’s warmth. During this phase of being cold, it is possible for this person to appear to be double minded: in that he or she may vacillate between pure and false doctrines until God’s Truth finally is both found and understood. Then, he or she adamantly and instantly will accept and wholly obey.

Lukewarm are those who have heard and know the Truth— being God’s Law, doctrine— believing this to be all they need. This was very true amidst the Pharisees during Christ’s ministry. Today’s lukewarm Christians, however, are very passive about speaking God’s testimony and teaching His Law, not wanting to disturb the world around them: “There’s two things I don’t get into discussions about, politics and religion.” Sound familiar? This smacks of preserving convenience and peace in an individual’s life. Jesus didn’t come to bring peace. He came with a sword to divide and conquer, instructing that His disciples carry the same sword of Truth to conquer and divide the wheat from the weeds.

Lukewarm might pay tithes but will not go out of their way to help others, either financially or with their time. Lukewarm is the only spiritual condition where obeying God’s Law could be referred to as legalism. As Jesus accused, “You didn’t feed the hungry, house the homeless, cloth the naked, visit the sick and those falsely imprisoned. Therefore, you did nothing for me. I do not know you.” To not be known by Christ is to reap Satan’s token of twice dead.

Lukewarm distinctly is double minded, obeying only part of God’s will and, like the Pharisees, leaving out the weightier matters of El’s doctrine. To such attitude, God says He will spew them out of His mouth. In any day and age, this means a second death for them: IF they do not repent and change their ways immediately.

According to Revelation 3:18-19, these are the only humans, during these end days of Laodicea, who still have the option to repent: mainly because they answered the call to salvation prior to Laodicea and do know the truth. Otherwise, salvation no longer is on offer, to anyone not previously called, in this church era: “…for the time is at hand. “He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. And, behold, I come quickly.” (Revelation 22:10~, 11, ~12)

Amos 8:12—They [unjust and filthy] shall wander from sea to sea, from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the Lord, and shall not find it.

While Amos is speaking of Israel’s utter collapse following Christ’s ministry, the warning applies equally to this Laodicea era and fully harmonizes with II Timothy 3:5,7— “Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. [They are] ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”

About now, a few might be exclaiming in horror, “But, I’m just now learning God’s truth and I’ve believed for years and years. And, I’m obeying His truth as I learn it!” Then he or she must be one of the cold that was seeking warmth: having been called to salvation sometime prior to February 1991: possibly through a denominational organization, but now find his or her self currently realizing something definitely is missing. So, he or she began seeking what was missing. Welcome to the Elect. God never said He would spew out of His mouth those cold: for with them He sees hope, even in these end days.

To fail to do any part of God’s Doctrine and His Will is to commit sin: as we discovered when learning God’s viewpoint regarding tithe. Those who bear the seal of God, DO NOT SIN: for sin is transgression of the Law and those sealed are compelled by love to obey God’s Law. It states in Revelation 14:12 that “the wisdom of the saints are they who obey God’s Precepts and have the same level of faith as that of Jesus.”

The term double minded can not, in any way, apply to the Cold. They are people who, no doubt, sinned in the past— therefore, will continue to be called a sinner as long as in this sin-scarred flesh— but, for love of the Father and His son, he or she chooses to no longer sin: they understand the weightier matters of sin and chose to sacrifice their flesh body, therefore no longer giving in to sin. This doesn’t mean they aren’t tempted thereafter! We all are tempted but choose to reject the temptation each time Satan rears his ugly head.

To sin is to choose to sin. We either override the flesh, which can be tempted, by allowing our spirit being within to dominate, which cannot be tempted; or, we choose to give in to temptation to violate one or more of God’s Statutes: to willingly commit sin.

Proverbs 21:6— The getting of [worldly] treasures by a lying tongue is a vanity tossed to and fro of them that seek [the second] death.

To knowingly sin, after learning God’s Truth, sets up one’s self for a “certain fearful awaiting of judgment: for there is no further atonement.” As scriptures state, Christ’s atonement blood was shed to cover our PAST sins, those things we did in ignorance before accepting His call and blood: He died once and will not die again for humanity.

Before James ever existed, Elijah defined double-mindedness in I Kings 18:21— “And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? If the Lord be God, follow him: but if Baal [Lucifer], then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.” Elijah was referring to God’s Precepts and His Sabbath.

{Baal is an Egyptian false god, therefore it is proper to refer to Baal and any other false gods as being various forms Lucifer manifests: just as within Christianity, he takes on the appearance of light— a wolf in sheep’s clothing— represented by his great whore and her harlot daughters, his ministers also appearing as ministers of light.}

The above was and remains today an abomination to God, for which the Jews have been mightily punished: an example to us of what He hates with a perfect hate. Elijah was telling them that it must be one or the other. It cannot be both. To do both is to be double-minded or, as Revelation indicates, lukewarm. This is akin to having one foot in El’s camp and the other in Satan’s world. As far as God is concerned, and unless both feet are in His camp, then both feet are considered in Satan’s. Riding the fence is unacceptable and is recognized only by Beelzebub, for which he gladly renders his “mark of Sunday.”

Despite having been warned time and again, the people continued as they wanted, instead of in accordance with Jehovah’s message through various ancient prophets. Corporate Christendom does the same thing today, despite Jesus having both taught and lived His Father’s doctrine as our living example to follow, the same performed by His Apostles, disciples and proselytes. Still, Christendom justifies its abominations by “saving heathens” who worship no god or numerous gods. This didn’t work for the Jews: as history chronicles. It won’t work for us Gentiles, any more than it did them.

Paul clearly describes wavering in Ephesians 4:14— That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, CARRIED ABOUT WITH EVERY WIND OF DOCTRINE, by the sleight [tricks] of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive.

(James 4:2-4,7-8,17) Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. Ye ADULTERERS AND ADULTERESSES, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the ENEMY OF GOD.

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. CLEANSE YOUR HANDS, ye sinners; and PURIFY YOUR HEARTS, YE DOUBLE-MINDED. Therefore to HIM THAT KNOWeth TO DO GOOD, AND DOeth IT NOT, TO HIM IT IS [COUNTED AS] SIN.

James adds clarification of a double-minded person: one who knows what is sin yet does it anyway. There is no shadow of doubt that Israel knew God’s Truth: after all, it came by way of Israel. But, man’s arrogance got in the way. We are told to clean our hands—to change our behaviour, actions— and purify our hearts: first to acknowledge and admit sins committed, then change our heart to one desiring to please and obey God.

Leaders of Christ’s church are cautioned in I Timothy 3:8— Likewise must the DEACONS BE grave, NOT DOUBLE-TONGUED, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre [monetary gain].

Double-tongued is to contrarily say or teach what people want to hear, at the same time knowing God’s Truth— speaking either God’s doctrine or mankind’s or a little of both— instead of what they need to hear by keeping strictly to God’s policy. What people want to hear are smoothly spoken words to ease a guilty conscience. The great whore and her harlot daughters do this quite well through their corporate Christendom leaders of myriad denominations, whose creeds are just as widely varied. Appropriately, Christ’s church leaders are cautioned not to become greedy: which greed we see in abundance today among Sunday’s denominational and evangelical leaders. They even pay great homage to Hollywood: in fact, all forms of worldly entertainment.

The remaining part of the question deals with the fact we all are sinners. Sadly, corporate Christendom has caused confusion regarding the fact we all are called sinners: as though no matter what we do we are destined to continue sinning. They twist the term called to mean we continue to sin once saved; so, they falsely teach a once-saved-always-saved dogma and blasphemously lay it at Christ’s cross: blasphemy. As Grace Times Seven revealed, we can lose salvation anytime before achieving the sixth step of grace.

Biblically, if we committed so much as one sin during our entire life but never sinned again once saved, we still are known as sinners— which is to say, we are called sinners— as long as we wear this corruptible flesh: this temporary body bears the scars of a sin or multiple sins. Corruptible flesh is another of God’s two-fold messages: it was destined to sin before fully converted, as noted in last week’s Extra Oil— if the Father called such person to Jesus— AND it is destined to decay and die because of sin. Ah, but we are spirit beings, not that body of terribly scarred flesh.

Consequently, while we might take on Christ like perfection, obeying henceforth in all things, we were not perfect to begin with—Christ was not born of sin and never sinned in His lifetime, virginal as it were— thus, we wear a scarlet letter upon our damaged flesh. God-acknowledged perfection occurs when we are given new, incorruptible garments— which never can sin and is destined to eternal life— in exchange for this tattered one. Our new clothing will match our clean hands and purified heart. Once we repent and change our ways, this old garment no longer fits. It fit perfectly the old filthy ways.

Once a person commits to total obedience, his or her mindset changes as well. Like Paul, as long as he or she is in this flesh, it is to be absent from the Lord and he or she longs to be in heaven with Him instead of here in this sick, dying world; yet, he or she willingly remains until God deems his or her mission complete and grants rest, or Christ returns to take him or her up: whichever comes first is irrelevant to His servants.

Hebrews 10:22-31,35-39— Let us draw near [Christ] with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised); and let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works; not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting [encouraging] one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching [of Christ’s return].

For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, but a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries [wicked and filthy and their father Lucifer].

He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?

For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge His people. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence [promise] of reward.

For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry [delay]. Now the just shall live by faith [that Christ will return]: but if any man draw back [into sin], my soul shall have no pleasure in him. But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition [deadly sin]; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.

Concluding advice: be not double minded; it is a deadly wide road with only utter destruction waiting at its end.

——Christ will come as early as mid-October to early-November 2009 or 2010 but no later than those same months in 2011. Book of Hebrews says He will not be late. Time is of the essence. If not fully converted, time is your enemy; for total conversion in this age must be instant, this day, today: do not delay.

——Pray for every human! Be watchful, standing fast even if facing death. WE HAVE GOD’S POWER. KEEP WALKING and TALKING, even when it seems useless: you might snatch one lost, lukewarm sheep from God’s fiery wrath. So saith the Lord, “Ye lukewarm await consuming fire.”

Prophecy’s Extra Oil Update 22A-SPECIAL: Busy Busy Weekend
©copyright 2009 Bonita M Quesinberry

Correction: last week, Christ’s Sheep were asked to remember Jonestown, Guyana (was misspelled), over 900 died (wrote 600) for one man’s insane views of God’s Holy Bible— alas, we now live in this last era when a few Sheep will die at the hands of the great whore and her harlot daughters, achieved by way of police powers in Blue Laws of the land in place more than 1000 years around world and over 200 years in US; This is also the time to remember God’s warning, “Beware ye double minded:” a deadly mindset to be in at anytime and especially when Christ arrives (see 10-17 Sabbath Extra Oil).

——Wars & Riots: Fatalities of UN soldiers, civilians and policemen rising all over Middle East and Africa along with civil unrest in many parts of the world, including US; India test fires ground to ground missiles; Iran test fires 5 short-range nuclear missiles; China sentences to death 6 held responsible for riots; Iran sentences to death 5 held responsible for election result protests; UN official says Afghan votes fraudulent; Greenpeace protestors camp on Parliament roof; Tensions rise between Turkey & Israel when military exercises cancelled; Pakistan— weekend, teen suicide bomber kits military headquarters, 41 civilians dead & 50+ injured; Pakistan, Monday blast kills 29, 45-injured; Gun battle breaks out in Ohio bar due to man trying to sell drugs; Siblings fight over Martin Luther King’s estate in trial;

NOT over; Insurance industry threatens premium increases up to $1700 per year for family of 4 and as much as $600 for one person, effort to thwart Health Care Reform; Airlines to cut holiday airfares lower than last year; By 2009 end, 1.4-million will lose unemployment benefits, Fed considering another extension of same;

——Great whore & harlot daughters: Pope canonizes 5 new saints, Father Damien among Vatican’s new saints; daughters’ greed revealed when denominations are ripped off by fraudulent investments, but long ago revealed by incorporating to gain tax exemption; Seminary students carry banner “Let Live, Let Love for ALL God’s Children” as they join Gay Rights march for equal rights in both the military and marriage or contractual equality; Obama states effort to eliminate gay discrimination in military and equal rights outside military as guaranteed under the US Constitution;

——Nature: Philippines floods cause landslides, death toll over 200 & rising; Heavy rains cause floods in mid-east & eastern US states; heavy snow early winter in Denver, Colo.; Earthquakes— global includes western US, 226 all along Ring of Fire in last 6 days, includes today, ranging from 2.5 to 5.4; Volcanoes— continuing activity in last 6 days, includes today, at following sites: Southern Chile, Chuginadak Island, Columbia, Banks Island, Eastern & Central Kamchatka (2 in Russia), Kyushu, Montserrat, Indonesia, Halmahera, Hawaii, 2 in New Britain, Mexico, 2 in Ecuador, and Japan.

——Newton’s Year 2060: “The Nostradamus Effect” 2009 documentary was about 200-yr hidden documents of Isaac Newton’s research in Bible prophecies of Daniel, parts of Isaiah and Apostle John’s Revelation. Newton’s study of Revelation was done using science and math that resulted in predicting Armageddon to occur “before 2060:” his theory based on what he referred to as “numeric codes” in the Bible, stating that Armageddon would be followed by 1000 years of restoration and teaching of God’s Truth for one last time: right here on earth. This does agree with pagan beliefs, albeit the dates differ, but not the Bible.

Born 25 Dec 1642/died 20 Mar 1727, Newton was considered a “brilliant” British scientist who had an almost obsessive fascination with Bible prophecy; unfortunately he died before God removed the seals to future prophecies in 1798: the very ones he was attempting to interpret. By the time he was an adult, the Bible was freely available to all who wanted one, thanks to King James’ A.D. 1611 translators.

Newton’s records do seem to accurately predict the Jews 1944 return to Israel and predicted their temple must be rebuilt, despite a Moslem Mosque— Dome of the Rock— built on the ancient temple’s foundation between A.D. 658 and 691, where it continues to stand today. The problem with his results: the Jews return to Israel was encouraged by the prophecy that led up to Christ’s 3.5-yr ministry: Daniel’s 490-yr (70-wks) prophecy plus scriptures from Isaiah already totally fulfilled. Their return IS prophesied but not before a “new earth” timeframe when there will be no temple, “for God and Christ are the temple.”

As noted above, the future prophecies he was attempting to solve were still sealed to prevent understanding until God said it was time to interpret: the Sardis era that began in 1798. Therefore, it is spiritually accurate to say that the 1944 return to Israel was and remains caused by man’s design and manipulation of Jews scattered around the world— Nostradamus and Newton along with the great whore and harlot daughters— as opposed to God’s perfect timing spiritually discerned in His prophecies at the right time.

The first Holy Temple was built by King Solomon between B.C. 957 and 587, which was later destroyed. Newton and the Jews failed to note that the only time they were given back all of the Holy Lands was during the first 483-yrs of the prophecy to prepare for Messiah-in-the-flesh to come the first time. The second temple, built by King David, was completed in B.C. 515. As both Daniel and Jesus predicted, it was destroyed in A.D. 70.

Jews have been in the Holy Land for 65 years now; yet multitudes have not returned and Israel still does not possess all the original real estate: prophecy stated they would not regain it and Daniel said that, following its destruction in A.D. 70, the temple would never be rebuilt “even to the consumption,” earth’s temporary end— her Sabbath rest beginning when Christ returns in the clouds to take up His small flocks of sheep.

Newton also tied to the above event Revelation’s prophecy of God’s Truth being taught one more time. This latter was fulfilled during the Philadelphia age that began in 1844 and ended in 1991 when Desert Storm began in the Middle East: the Laodicea age began and extends to Jesus’ returning in the clouds. It appears that Newton’s scientific and numeric research did not include research of key events having already occurred in Jewish history that fulfilled those prophecies with perfect accuracy. Also, he did not precisely bring together the exact timing of each prophetic event involved that brought humanity to these “end of days.” How could he?

Newton did not understand the meaning of the only scripture in the entire Bible that prophesies the “end of days” with a single reference to the ancient plains of Armageddon, on the border of which sat the ancient village of Megiddo; which must be combined with Christ’s statement, “When you see Jerusalem surrounded by the world’s armies . . .” The entire Middle East, including Israel, were and remain surrounded by UN armies on land, sea and air since 1991. How perfect! There also is another problem with Newton’s date of 2060 extending the Laodicea age to 69 years, which Jesus said would be cut short, thus causing it to exceed the Sardis age by 23 years: Sardis era consumed 46 years.

Newton’s findings contain the same lack of precision taught by Revelation’s great whore Papal Rome, her harlot daughters’ myriad Protestant denominations, and echoed by their fake pastors and false prophets. While there is a numeric code to determine dates of prophecy, it is in plain sight in the Bible; i.e. an hour is a day, a day is a year, a month being 30 days, man’s week being seven days but earth’s week is determined as one day equals 1000 years, and so forth. Despite these codes, historical research must be combined with them in order to determine exact dates to perfect events that match prophecy’s metaphors without flaw.

God’s infinite logic and accuracy is brought together in “Bind Up the Testimony, Seal the Law”— the only chronological, wholly Biblical/Spiritual interpretation of The Revelation, paraphrased as we speak today: it is not for the world, only the saints and the elect. If any of Christ’s sheep still believe man’s interpretation, they are strongly urged to read “Bind Up . . .” in order to discern the difference between man’s lack of logic and God’s pure logic. Believing man’s story is to be unprepared thus left behind dead.

——Man’s so-called Christian festivals are upon us, an issue that needs to be addressed by every true saint and elect. Turn away from the following rituals done in God and Christ’s names: Thanksgiving, 8-day Celtic festival to harvest gods; Halloween, ritual to appease angry gods now called all-saints day; Christmas & Easter, Wicca & Druid solstice festivals to sun god; Valentine’s Day remembers a mortal pope in name of love. Each was adopted into the apostate churches by Papal Rome, the great whore of Revelation. Can you stand toe-to-toe with Jesus and tell Him you observe them in His name and that makes it okay?

Jesus never embraced pagan rites to save heathens, neither did His Apostles or the true church nor should we. He said to do as He did. Jesus gave us one ordinance to keep in remembrance of Him, as often as desired: Passover. Easter is a floating day; Passover is a fixed date each year. Jesus was born in mid- to late October, not December; and He rose from the grave on a May Sunday, not a floating Sunday. As for the little cherub of love: we should give our love to fellow man every day, not just once a year— cards and cardboard hearts filled with chocolates don’t cut it. The facts on this issue will come by Extra Oil in a few weeks from now.

Extra Oil Update

Earth IS Reeling To & Fro like a Drunkard— Obama, Weeds choke, New Vision: Heart Pounding Disconnection, Be “Converted” or left dead amidst ring of fire

 

Prophecy’s Extra Oil Update 22-URGENT: Vision or Full Conversion
©copyright 2009 Bonita M Quesinberry

President Obama received Nobel Peace Prize for stance & work in bringing together all nations for common goal of economic stability and peace; Obama best ever globally visible president & most visible in US in effort to create transparent presidency and government. Caution: do not assume by this, as many have, that Obama is the antichrist. He cannot be; for that title depicts corporate Christendom led by the “Abomination of Desolation” representative seen in 1993 & 2001 in Jerusalem where “he ought not to be.”

This week’s recall to Fully Convert is crucial to all sheep, especially since short is the time to Christ’s return. Also, we include a vision God kindly gave to one of Christ’s Sheep— it will scare you to death, IF you are lukewarm!

The last Extra Oil Special mentioned the particularly tenacious pig weed taking over and killing millions of acres of US crops— TSaS is reminded of God’s Truth being wheat and man’s lies the weeds that choke out many who first came to the Truth by God’s Son, albeit surrounded by lies and a false sabbath; yet others would survive despite the rapid growth of choking weeds. Christ instructed that the weeds be left alone, for in the end only the strong in Truth will survive to harvest for that journey of a lifetime: God’s safe haven of heaven! Then, later, back to earth’s Garden of Eden.

Revelation depicted those lies as a “flood to destroy Christ’s church.” Have you “come out of her,” as God instructed; so that you do not partake of her sins and her plagues for death? Not only is “her” Papal Rome but also Sunday keeping Protestant denominations “her” harlot daughters: the false sabbath Sunday being an undeniable umbilical cord between mother and daughters. Death is so close for them and their flocks of goats, that what few cold or lukewarm sheep might be in their midst must leave instantly and must absolutely accept the Truth of those vile women’s deadly goal— separation from God forever— that is to be “twice dead.”

Recently, Truth Speaker BonnieQ’s foster daughter Tammy, in Florida, gave a testimony to be share with Christ’s sheep. Tammy has known God’s Truth for 28 years yet lived as if “knowing” was all she needed (lukewarm); thus, her main focus had been financial prosperity. About four months ago, she suddenly felt an urgency to turn fully to God’s Truth and did just that at the risk of losing her job in order to follow God’s Seal.

Four weeks ago, God graciously gave her a vision; one to be shared with the world’s lukewarm. Sound asleep one night: suddenly, Tammy was awakened by excruciatingly loud noises. She leapt out of bed and ran outside to see what was happening. Instantly, she saw the brightest Light earth had ever seen and at once she was being lifted toward it— just as suddenly, Tammy awakened and jerked upright, her breathing labored, her heart pounding wildly: “I knew I was alive yet felt dead, no emotion or feelings for God and Christ or anything or anyone. Like I was disconnected from God and Christ!”

Because Tammy had waited until almost the last minute to turn around her life, God lovingly allowed her to experience what it would feel like to suddenly lose touch with Him and His Son; a definite if she were to return to a lukewarm condition. It was His way of urging Tammy to stand strong, unshakable. “I never want to feel utterly disconnected again. It scared me to death!” The feelings, that is, the lack thereof, were gone by the next morning; but, they were so vividly strong that, as Tammy said, she never wants to feel disconnected from her Father again and hopes that others who are lukewarm will take her vision experience to heart to turn around themselves, too.

This is Tammy’s message to all who have God’s Truth yet remain in the midst of the great whore or one of her harlot daughters. You can’t “fix” or “change” those denominations or their leaders, who always knew God’s Truth but lusted man’s ways. You can do only as God urged, “Come out of her, My people, that you not partake of her sins and pay her debt in death”— complete and utter disconnection from Father and Son forever:

Be Fully Converted
©copyright 2006 Bonita M Quesinberry

Jesus said to Peter, “Simon, Simon; know that Satan desires to have you, so he may devour you like sifted wheat. But, I have prayed for you, that your faith does not fail; and when you are [fully] converted, then strengthen your brethren.” ~~Luke 22:31-32, paraphrased.  I Peter 5:6-9 confirms: Satan desires to have all of us. “Strengthen your brethren” goes hand in hand with those mature in God’s Word and who are teaching the infants in God’s Word outside of organized denominations: covered below. Once Peter was fully converted, His instruction was to teach: to “feed” Christ’s small flocks of sheep.

Why did Christ say that to Peter about Satan? After all, Peter walked along side Jesus from day one of His ministry, boldly declaring Him the Messiah, Son of God: his Lord and Saviour. His loyalty seemed strong, unshakable throughout those three and a half years. Yet, reading further into Luke’s c.22, we find Jesus warning Peter that he would deny knowing Christ three times following His arrest. This, then, was one way Satan tempted Peter: if he acknowledged Jesus, he would die with Christ.

Imagine Peter envisioning himself hanging on one of those three crosses aside Jesus, had he owned up to being one of His followers. Fear is one of Satan’s greatest weapons used against people to turn them away from God but, more specifically, away from His Truth unaware; fear always is couched in death: fear of dying. To fear death of our flesh, to fear anything and anyone, is a clear sign that we do not know God and Christ thus certainly do not trust either. One might believe in them yet not know them: even the demons believe but they will not be redeemed.

God said, “I do not give you a spirit of fear, rather I give you a spirit of peace.” Also, “My people perish for lack of knowledge.” He is not speaking about man’s knowledge or wisdom; rather, God speaks of lacking knowledge and wisdom of God and Christ.

Satan was attacking Peter throughout Christ’s ministry, as noted in “Is Healing of a Christian’s Body a Given,” which includes a section on Peter. He argued with Jesus, questioned what He was doing, and boasted of giving up everything to follow Him; each behaviour wholly unacceptable to God and Christ.

We have no right to question what God does; certainly, we have no right to argue either God’s or Christ’s directives and neither does any man have a right to change anything God has commanded; and definitely, we’ve nothing to boast about if we follow Jesus, for we did nothing to earn God’s call to His side. By God’s grace we were called, yet still had to be chosen; as Christ indicated, “Many are called, few are chosen.”

Later, Peter acted with violence against a guard who was in the act of arresting Jesus. Peter, surely thinking he was being noble and loyal, instantly yanked out his sword and sliced off the man’s ear; which ear Christ immediately restored to the guard while correcting Peter. Jesus taught us to be loving peacemakers, to walk as peaceably among mankind as possible; to love even our enemies, to give good for evil. Cutting off the man’s ear was neither peaceful nor a good action on Peter’s part. It clearly was evil and, certainly, a poor witness for Christ.

What this shows us is that Satan also wants to devour us and, despite claiming belief, we start out giving only a little of ourselves to Christ while fearing that, if we give of our whole self, we will suffer in myriad ways; which is true, we will suffer. BUT, this doesn’t mean partial conversion cannot become complete, that we cannot come to give of our entire self for Jesus; which conversion must be achieved or we perish in earth’s end coming up very rapidly.

We’ve only to understand the growth process, those steps necessary to becoming fully converted, then be willing to take the steps to gain God’s knowledge and wisdom. As instructed, we are to grow into Christ’s righteousness, which means to become as righteous as He was and is. Paul further enlightens in Philippians 2:12, “So, my beloved, since you have always obeyed, not in my presence only but even in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.” We must work at becoming righteous; which is exactly why it is crucial to obey God’s Law as He wrote it in stone in the beginning, for it is the Law of Righteousness, the Law of Life, the Law of Blessings.

When you are converted” implies full conversion is not usually immediate, though it can be, as it was in Apostle John: in Peter’s case, despite having served at Christ’s side for three and a half years, his conversion was not completed until after Christ’s ascension; for even during the 40 days after Christ’s resurrection, Peter questioned Jesus about what He was going to do as He walked away with John. Perhaps envy there, for John was the beloved Apostle. Typically, Peter could not keep his mouth shut when he should.

I Peter 5:10, paraphrased, sheds light on when we become fully converted, “God of all grace has called us to share His eternal glory by Christ Jesus; so that, after you have suffered for a while, you will be made perfect, strongly established in God’s Word, and you become mature; which is to say unshakable.” (see “Grace: Times Seven“) Do not be misled into thinking that suffering stops after becoming fully converted. It does not and will not, until Christ returns. During these “end of days,” it steadily worsens: many of you are aware of this occurring to Truth Speaker BonnieQ.

Those who speak true for God and Christ always will suffer. This passage tells us that, after we’ve suffered for a while, we will become stronger through it and will find it much easier thereafter to get through Satan’s continued torment. Satan is relentless when it comes to God’s people, especially in these end days; for he is now in a desperate rage, all of which is directed at infant converts, who are the most vulnerable due to a lack of knowledge and wisdom, but more so God’s Truth Speakers; he hopes to move them but he cannot, for it is impossible.

The lesson “From Adversities to Blessings” revealed that God allows adversity as a measure of our level of righteousness and so we can come to understand there is nothing and no one greater than God; which directly relates to “after you have suffered for a while.” Ephesians 4:15 describes this process as “growing into Christ’s righteousness.”

A new “born again” Christian often is referred to scripturally as an “infant, one who drinks milk, not yet ready for solid food.” As any infant must, so a new Christian must learn to sit, to crawl, to speak, and to walk while, ultimately and gradually, solid food is introduced by God’s mature Christians. The milk is comprised of the basics of salvation and steady learning of God’s Wisdoms. Ephesians describes “solid food” as learning “to speak God’s Truth in love.”

The “milk” also represents a period of learning about God and Christ’s love for us; while “solid food” refers to the weightier matters of God’s Word. We cannot hope to speak “Truth in love” until true love is in our hearts and it compels us to absolute obedience; for it is then we understand what is truly LOVE: its depths and breadths and heights. Only godly love within us can speak Truth, no matter what obstacles and persecutions that might and are thrown in our paths.

A mature Christian has no fear of anything man or beast can do to his or her flesh body, does not fear death of the body, does not fear persecution, does not fear Satan’s cruel thorns; does not fear losing a job, does not fear losing material possessions; does not fear anything or anyone except a healthy respect (fear) of God. The mature do experience weariness of the battle, from time to time, but they continue on: for God does provide breaks from earth’s ongoing spiritual war steadily worsening in these “end of days.”

A mature Christian rejoices in all things, good or bad, and is bold in speaking God’s Truth to all who will hear and obey; despite persecution and thorns in our sides. Alas, too many people have not been taught these things from their favored pulpits; thus, far too many turn away from God when temptations and/or adversities or the cares of this world come upon them, especially painful adversities: physical and/or emotional. Worse, they remain among the harlot daughters because it feels comfortable, safer, the people therein more important that God and His Son. Alas, it is a road paved with utter destruction.

Why turn away? Because these infants have been led to believe their life instantly will be better, happier, more peaceful and, certainly, more financially prosperous after accepting Christ. If it is not, they then are told it is because they either do not believe or they have no faith or both or they are not fully following man’s doctrine. Two of the worst lying accusations being flung at new Christians are, “The poor do not have God” and, “You are dead to the Law because God knows you cannot obey it.” What a crock! God said it was the ordinances that were impossible to maintain and it was only the ordinance of sacrifice and oblations that hung on the cross: deleted from the books, as it were.

Deep in their core, infants fear Satan’s cruelty; especially if they witness a mature, bold disciple suffer thorns as well as persecution from those who appear to be Christian brothers and sisters or even family members. They do not understand they are not subjected to anything unusual to Christ’s sheep, as noted in I Peter 4:12-19 and 5:6-9. Even Jesus was tempted and suffered adversities, as were His Apostles. Christ suffered for us and the Word says we WILL suffer for Him, IF we truly love and obey.

Sadly, “don’t rock the boat” is what these infants learn very quickly, while being encouraged to cling to smooth words spewing from their chosen denominational pulpits urging them to rapidly adhere to “man’s commandments and traditions” instead of God’s; clearly not recognizing that their approval is coming from Satan, not God. Therefore, they have not the power of God upon them, nor both the mind and heart of Christ.

Unfortunately, and while they do not realize they have chosen death instead of life, their current life seems to improve when they do as man directs: for Satan does not torment those who bow to his desire, which lust is that they continue in sin while declaring love for God and man. The base of his craving is our total death, both body and spirit; and, the best way to assure that our spirit man dies is to con us into believing that we don’t have to concern ourselves with obeying God’s Doctrine, His Statutes of Life.

If every infant were taught God’s Truth from the very beginning, their chances of becoming mature in God’s Word would be greater; for there is no escaping the fact that a person can deal with what they know and understand but will run from what they do not comprehend. As noted above, “My people perish for lack of knowledge.” Notice that it says, “MY people.” God is not speaking to the whole world, only to those who profess belief but do not obey, are not wholly converted, not totally armored. Corporate Christendom must and will, in the end, take all responsibility for its followers’ lack of knowledge: annihilation along with their goats.

As Jesus said, they “are like white tombs, beautiful on the outside but full of dead men’s bones.” Corporate Christendom will have the blood of their goats on their own hands; for as God said, “Satan slays his own.” In other words, when those followers are cast into the pit of fire and brimstone with Satan, it will be for his lies they followed. The urgency among the great whore and her harlot daughters is now, “Don’t leave the church, despite its problems! Stay and love. . .” They may as well say, “Stay and die with us.”

“Study to show yourself approved by God” (see “How to Study God’s Word“). This is the first requirement of an infant, yet the vast majority listen to pulpit speakers then go home and wait until the next week to “hear” a tiny bit again; or, they solely rely on evangelical television, which is just as misleading and teaches the same lies for God. Therefore, the infant also is responsible for his or her own lack of knowledge; IF he or she opts to take only the word of whomever stands in a pulpit to preach or shouts from their television screen. To do so is to choose death, wittingly or unwittingly.

There is more revealed in Christ’s statement to Peter regarding Satan’s desire to devour him: it verifies Satan’s existence and that he does tamper with our lives and thoughts: he tempts, torments, inflicts cruelty through other humans’ actions or directly by attacking our bodies with illnesses and diseases and planting errant thoughts in our minds.

Unfortunately, many Christians believe Satan does not exist and, as such, has no control over their lives. Such belief is dangerous; first, in that it denies God’s Word about Satan; and, second, because the person is unwittingly giving their control over to Satan by merely denying his existence and power to deceive as well as harm. Only by recognizing Satan and his myriad tricks can we take control over him, thus control our life choices.

Satan operates in a catch-22 method and that really is to his liking: if we follow after man’s commandments and traditions we unwittingly have chosen death; if we do not study to show ourselves approved, we knowingly have chosen death; if we turn away from God and Christ altogether, we boldly have chosen death. In any case, Satan is laughing all the way to God’s pit of fire and brimstone and will drag us in with him: because it does not matter how we made the choice, our actions reveal our choice.

There is so much to learn about God and Christ in order to come to really know them both, so much wisdom and knowledge to gain; but, only if one willingly chooses to learn from those truly mature in God’s Word, which does not mean those trained by man’s seminaries and/or theologians; both teaching man’s commandments and traditions: lies in God’s name. It means those who continue to “study to show themselves approved,” who suffered for a while and became strong in God’s wisdom and knowledge, thus still are suffering for Christ; those who encourage infants to “study to show themselves approved” and teach them how to do it, as set out in “How to Study God’s Word.

How can anyone make wise choices if he or she is not willing to study in order to confirm what he or she is being taught by another? Refusing to study, grow and confirm is to willingly choose death over eternal life. It is to be considered dead in this life and to be deemed twice dead forever. To refuse to study also denies the Holy Spirit as our guide, a form of unforgivable blasphemy. Satan gets a chuckle out of this one at our expense.

Is this temporary life really worth such a sacrifice to Satan? The Destroyer can attack only our mind and flesh, his goal being to influence the spirit man within to sin against God: the New Testament clearly tells us that sin is to violate God’s Ten Statutes, and that no such person will ever enter heaven’s gates. God, on the other hand, can destroy both the flesh and spirit man within. Better to fear thus obey God than to fear what the Waster can and will do to us in this life. Get a clue! This life is TEMPORARY.

In John 6:63 Jesus said, “There is no profit in the flesh.” Paul noted, about having Jesus in our lives, “You ought to be able to control your flesh.” As explained in “The Mind of Christ,” as true believers we DO control our body’s actions and our mind’s thoughts and the words from our mouths— by the choices we make, choices based on action.

Study to show yourself that God has approved you for Christ’s kingdom and study to become fully converted: for the reward is eternal life in paradise.

—— So saith the Spirit, “As Daniel knew 2 years before the Jews’ captivity would end, so ye know 2 years before earth’s end.” By the Spirit, the sheep have been told, “Christ will come as early as mid-October to early-November 2009 or 2010 but no later than those same months in 2011.” Jesus has been allowed a bit of time to tarry, IF need be. Be sure to read the two SPECIAL broadcasts Extra Oil Update 20A and 20B for a sneak peek at the seventh plague: due in full force behind Jesus as He crosses our skies.

Partial silence has begun, as spoken of previously; thus, the precise year will be known when utter silence extends for 7.5 days (prophetic “half an hour”). Listen, little sheep, listen with your spiritual ears, and watch the clouds with your spiritual eyes. Time is of the essence. If not fully converted, time is no longer your friend; for total conversion in this age must be instant, this day, today: do not delay.

——Pray for all international leaders and their peoples; pray for the goats, asking our Father to forgive those who do not “come out of her to become fully converted sheep, for they know not what they do or to whom they do it.” KNOW WITH CERTAINTY: NEITHER GOD’S FEW PROPHETS NOR ANY OF CHRIST’S SHEEP EVER BRING HARM UPON ANY CREATURE, INCLUDING MAN, INSTEAD CHOOSING FORGIVENESS AND DEATH OF SELF in exchange for everlasting life as exemplified by our Saviour Christ.

Little Sheep, be watchful, as I watch and continue watching; continue standing fast, even if facing death. We are greatly outnumbered but completely assured WE HAVE GOD’S POWER: they have no strength, only the ability to harm your flesh but never your spirit being! KEEP WALKING and TALKING, even when it feels useless: in the blink of an eye you might snatch one lost sheep from God’s fiery wrath.

Earth staggers with Christ’s closed invitation to only the “lukewarm and cold”— the former knows Truth but in some way are not living and/or speaking it. The Cold seek warmth of Truth and come to it the instant heard or read. Dear Sheep, live and speak ALL of God’s Truth: that is the warmth sought by the cold, whom God never said He would spew out of His mouth: “I wish that you were hot or cold, but since you are lukewarm I shall destroy you.” Why not the cold? Because He knows the Cold are seeking His Truth and, while patiently waiting for His speakers, they obey all that they do know and understand. So saith the Lord, “Ye lukewarm await consuming fire.”

Quickly— after all, a year or two is not much time— Jesus will come through earth’s door upon the clouds with a host of His angels. He brings with Him the decrees of innocent or guilty. His Sheep maintain extra oil by total obedience, unwavering faith and being watchmen of the signs and plagues— our Groom is close by.

Become Fully Converted

Become Fully Converted

©copyright 2006 Bonita M Quesinberry, R.C.

  

Jesus said to Peter, “Simon, Simon; know that Satan desires to have you, so he may devour you like sifted wheat. But, I have prayed for you, that your faith does not fail; and when you are [fully] converted, then strengthen your brethren.” ~~Luke 22:31-32, paraphrased.  I Peter 5:6-9 confirms: Satan desires to have all of us. “Strengthen your brethren” goes hand in hand with those mature in God’s Word and who are teaching the infants in God’s Word, which is covered below. Once Peter was fully converted, His instruction was to teach: to “feed” Christ’s small flocks of sheep.

 

Still, why would Christ say such a thing to Peter about Satan? After all, Peter had walked along side Jesus from day one of His ministry, boldly declaring Him to be the Messiah, the Son of God: his Lord and Saviour. His loyalty seemed strong, unshakable throughout those three and a half years. Yet, reading further into Luke’s chapter 22, we find Jesus warning Peter that he would deny knowing Christ three times following His arrest.

 

This, then, was one manner by which Satan would tempt Peter: if he acknowledged Jesus, he would die with Christ. We might imagine Peter envisioning himself hanging on one of those three crosses right along with Jesus, had he owned up to being one of His followers. Fear is one of Satan’s greatest weapons used against people to turn them away from God and His Truth; fear always is couched in death: fear of dying. To fear death of our flesh, to fear anything and anyone, is a clear sign that we neither know God nor Christ. We might believe in them yet not know them.

 

As the Word says, “I do not give you a spirit of fear, rather I give you a spirit of peace.” Additionally, God said, “My people perish for lack of knowledge.” He is not speaking about knowledge or wisdom of this world; rather, God speaks of lacking knowledge and wisdom of God and Christ.

 

Satan was attacking Peter throughout Christ’s ministry; as noted in “Is Healing of a Christian’s Body a Given,” which includes a section on Peter. He argued with Jesus, questioned what He was doing, and boasted of giving up everything to follow Him; each behaviour wholly unacceptable to God and Christ.

 

We have no right to question what God does; certainly, we have no right to argue either God’s or Christ’s directives and neither do we have a right to change anything God has commanded; and, we’ve certainly nothing to boast about if we follow Jesus, for we did nothing to earn God’s call to His side. By God’s grace, we were called yet, thereafter, still must be chosen; as Christ indicated when He said, “Many are called, few are chosen.”

 

Later, Peter acted with violence against a guard who was in the act of arresting Jesus. Peter, surely thinking he was being noble and loyal, instantly yanked out his sword and sliced off the man’s ear; which ear Christ immediately restored to the guard while correcting Peter. Jesus taught us to be loving peacemakers, to walk as peaceably among mankind as possible; to love even our enemies, to give good for evil. Cutting off the man’s ear was neither a peaceful nor good action on Peter’s part. It clearly was evil.

 

What this shows us is that Satan also wants to devour us and, despite claiming belief, we start out giving only a little of ourselves to Christ while fearing that, if we give of our whole self, we will suffer in myriad ways; which is true, we will suffer. BUT, this doesn’t mean partial conversion cannot become full conversion, that we cannot come to give of our whole self for Jesus; which conversion must be achieved or we will perish in earth’s end. 

 

We’ve only to understand the growth process, those steps necessary to becoming fully converted, then be willing to take the steps to gain God’s knowledge and wisdom. As instructed, we are to grow into Christ’s righteousness, which means to become as righteous as He was and is. Paul further enlightens in Philippians 2:12, “So, my beloved, since you have always obeyed, not in my presence only but even in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.” We must work at becoming righteous; which is exactly why it is crucial to obey God’s Law, for it is the Law of Righteousness.

 

When you are converted” implies that full conversion is not immediate in most cases, though it can be, as it was in Apostle John: in Peter’s case, despite having already served at Christ’s side for three and a half years, his conversion was not completed until after Christ’s ascension; for even during the 40 days following Christ’s resurrection, Peter again questioned Jesus about what He was going to do as He walked away with John.

I Peter 5:10, paraphrased, sheds light on when we become fully converted, “God of all grace has called us to share His eternal glory by Christ Jesus; so that, after you have suffered for a while, you will be made perfect, strongly established in God’s Word, and you become mature; which is to say unshakable.” (see “Grace: Times Seven“) Do not be misled into thinking that suffering stops after becoming fully converted. It does not and will not, until Christ returns. If anything, it becomes worse.

 

Those who speak true for God and Christ always will suffer. This passage tells us that, after we’ve suffered for a while, we will become stronger through it and will find it much easier thereafter to get through Satan’s continued torment. Satan is relentless when it comes to God’s people, especially in these end days; for he is now in a desperate rage, all of which is directed at infant converts, who are the most vulnerable due to a lack of knowledge, and especially God’s Truth speakers because they cannot be moved.

 

From Adversities to Blessings” revealed that God allows adversity in order to measure our level of righteousness and so that we can come to understand there is nothing and no one greater than God; which directly relates to “after you have suffered for a while.” Ephesians 4:15 describes this process as “growing into Christ’s righteousness.”

 

A new “born again” Christian often is referred to scripturally as an “infant, one who drinks milk, not yet ready for solid food.” As any infant must, so a new Christian must learn to sit, to crawl, to speak, and to walk while, ultimately and gradually, solid food will be introduced by God’s mature Christians. Ephesians describes “solid food” as learning “to speak God’s Truth in love.”

 

The “milk” represents a period of learning about God’s and Christ’s love for us; while “solid food” refers to the weightier matters of God’s Word. We cannot hope to speak “Truth in love” until true love is in our hearts and it compels us to obedience; for it is then we understand what is truly LOVE: its depths and breadths and heights. Only godly love within us can speak Truth, no matter what obstacles and persecutions that might and will be thrown in our paths.

 

A mature Christian has no fear of anything man or beast can do to his or her flesh body, does not fear death of the body, does not fear persecution, does not fear Satan’s cruel thorns; does not fear losing a job, does not fear losing material possessions; does not fear anything or anyone except God. Albeit, the mature do experience weariness of the fight, from time to time, but they continue on: for God will provide breaks from earth’s ongoing spiritual battles.

 

A mature Christian rejoices in all things, good or bad, and is bold in speaking God’s Truth to all who will hear and obey; despite persecution and thorns. Alas, too many people have not been taught these things from their favored pulpits; thus, far too many turn away from God when temptations and/or adversities or the cares of this world come upon them, especially adversities.

 

Why turn away? Because these infants have been led to believe their life instantly will be better, happier, more peaceful and, certainly, more monetarily prosperous after accepting Christ. If it is not, they then are told it is because they either do not believe or they have no faith or both or they are not fully following man’s doctrine. Two of the worst lying accusations being flung at new Christians are, “The poor do not have God” and, “You are dead to the Law because God knows you cannot obey it.” What a crock! It was the ordinances that were impossible to maintain.

 

Deep down at their core, these infants fear Satan’s cruelty, especially if they witness a mature, bold disciple suffer thorns as well as persecution from those who appear to be Christian brothers and sisters and even family members. They do not understand they are not subjected to anything unusual to Christ’s sheep, as noted in I Peter 4:12-19 and 5:6-9. Even Jesus was tempted and suffered adversities, as were His Apostles. Christ suffered for us and the Word says we WILL suffer for Him, IF we truly love and obey.

 

Sadly, “don’t rock the boat” is what these infants learn very quickly, while being encouraged to cling to smooth words spewing from their chosen denominational pulpit and to rapidly adhere to “man’s commandments and traditions” instead of God’s; clearly not recognizing that their approval is coming from Satan, not God.

 

Unfortunately, and while they do not realize they have chosen death instead of life, their current life seems to improve when they do as man directs: for Satan does not torment those who bow to his desire, which desire is that they continue in sin while declaring love for God and man. The base of his desire is our total death, both body and spirit; and, the best way to assure that our spirit man dies is to con us into believing that we don’t have to concern ourselves with obey God’s Doctrine, His Statutes of Life.

 

If every infant were taught God’s Truth from the very beginning, their chances of becoming mature in God’s Word would be greater; for there is no escaping the fact that a person can deal with what they know and understand but will run from what they do not comprehend. As noted above, “My people perish for lack of knowledge.” Notice that it says, “MY people.” God is not speaking to the whole world, only to those who profess belief but do not obey, are not wholly converted. It is this lack of knowledge for which corporate Christendom must and will, in the end, take the bulk of responsibility.

 

As Jesus said, they “are like white tombs, beautiful on the outside but full of dead men’s bones.” Corporate Christendom will have the blood of their followers on their own hands; for as God said, “Satan slays his own.” In other words, when those followers are cast into the pit of fire and brimstone with Satan, it will be because of his lies they have followed.

 

“Study to show yourself approved by God” (see “How to Study God’s Word“). This is the first requirement of an infant, yet the vast majority listen to pulpit speakers then go home and wait until the next week to “hear” again; or, they solely rely on evangelical television, which is just as misleading and teaches the same lies for God. Therefore, the infant also is responsible for his or her own lack of knowledge; IF he or she opts to take only the word of whomever stands in the pulpit to preach or shouts from their television screen. To do so is to choose death, wittingly or unwittingly.

 

There is more revealed in Christ’s statement to Peter regarding Satan’s desire to devour him: it verifies Satan’s existence and that he does tamper with our lives: he tempts, torments, and inflicts cruelty through the actions of other humans or directly by attacking our bodies with illnesses and diseases as well as planting errant thoughts in our minds.

 

Unfortunately, many Christians believe Satan does not exist and, as such, has no control over their lives. Such belief is dangerous; first, in that it denies God’s Word about Satan; and, second, because the person is unwittingly giving their control over to Satan by merely denying his existence and power to deceive as well as harm. Only by recognizing Satan and his myriad wicked ways are we able to exercise control over him, thus take back control of our life choices.

 

Satan operates in a catch-22 method and that really is to his liking: if we follow after man’s commandments and traditions we unwittingly have chosen death; if we do not study to show ourselves approved, we knowingly have chosen death; if we turn away from God and Christ altogether, we boldly have chosen death. In any case, Satan is laughing all the way to God’s pit of fire and brimstone and will drag us in with him: because it does not matter how we made the choice, for our actions reveal our choice.

 

There is so much to learn about God and Christ in order to come to truly know them both, so much wisdom and knowledge to gain; but, only if one willingly chooses to learn from those truly mature in God’s Word, which does not mean those trained by man’s seminaries and/or theologians; both teaching man’s commandments and traditions: lies in God’s name. It means those who continue to “study to show themselves approved,” who suffered for a while and became strong in God’s wisdom and knowledge, thus still are suffering for Christ; those who encourage infants to “study to show themselves approved” and teaches them just how to do it, such as set out in “How to Study God’s Word.

 

How can anyone make wise choices if he or she is not willing to study in order to confirm what he or she is being taught by another? Refusing to study, grow and confirm is to willingly choose death over eternal life. It is to be considered dead in this life and to be deemed twice dead forever. To refuse to study also denies the Holy Spirit as our guide, a form of unforgivable blasphemy. Satan gets a chuckle out of this one at our expense.

 

Is this temporary life really worth such a sacrifice to Satan? The Destroyer can attack only our mind and flesh, his goal being to influence the spirit man within to sin against God: the New Testament clearly tells us that sin is to violate God’s Ten Statutes, and that no such person will ever enter heaven’s gates. God, on the other hand, can destroy both the flesh and spirit man within. Better to fear thus obey God than to fear what the Waster can and will do to us in this life. Get a clue! This is TEMPORARY.

 

In John 6:63 Jesus said, “There is no profit in the flesh.” Paul noted, about having Jesus in our lives, “You ought to be able to control your flesh.” As explained in “The Mind of Christ,” as true believers we DO control our body’s actions and our mind’s thoughts and the words from our mouths.

Study to show yourself that God has approved you for Christ’s kingdom and study to become fully converted: for the reward is eternal life in paradise.

Legacy of The Third Eye ~~ poetic heritage

Legacy Of The Third Eye

©copyright 2004 Bonita M Quesinberry, R.C.

 

It all began with great grandmother,

on to mother’s grandmother, but no brothers;

then on to my own mother the legacy passed;

to her a curse, certainly a great task.

And, in some ways, it moved to me and mine:

strange events and portents of a kind.

 

Great grandmother had sixteen little ones;

but, times were rough and plagues often won.

The wall thumped like a heartbeat behind the bed:

they ripped it out, nothing there but dread;

upon the bed, a sickly child cried.

The thumping stopped: she of three died.

 

Another time, a snow white dove landed on the lawn,

and there it stood until dawn;

then under the house, beneath a room it cooed.

In there was a beautiful girl a man might have wooed,

yet unconscious she lay, hardly a breath.

The dove stopped, flew away: sixteen years at death.

 

But the most harrowing of great grandmother’s trials,

was her gorgeous brunette, full of grace and style.

So ill she became, lingering long near death;

then, a day came she seemed to draw not another breath.

They buried her, at just eighteen then;

and great grandmother prayed, enough death had been.

 

So common back then, they had to move her pine box.

A year later, they lifted it from among dirt and rocks.

Something did not seem right, on the side dried blood.

Gently, they prised open the lid: horror came in a flood:

for she had been buried alive… ALIVE, and she’d awakened,

struggled to claw her way out, feeling forsaken.

 

Great grandmother lost no more kids;

so passed to grandmother the legacy bid.

Mother’s father fell ill one day, only thirty-five,

believing grandmother that he would not die.

Grandmother’s bed began to thump like a heartbeat:

a brother tore it apart, but it didn’t skip a beat.

 

Mother wasn’t allowed to visit her Dad;

hospital rules, not because she was bad.

But, on this day, they said she could come;

so, grandmother dressed her like the sun,

bright and cheerful amidst the thumping:

stopping only to answer the phone trumping.

 

It was then the thumping suddenly ceased:

only five, but mother’s brow creased.

She watched her mother’s smile turn grim

as she laid the phone down, neat and trim.

Grandmother turned, “We won’t be going, honey.”

At five years old, death was not funny.

 

Soon, my mother’s turn the legacy to claim:

strange dreams for her, each time the same;

death it would be: of family, far or near.

At twelve, it was her mother’s that caused tears.

Mom often said she didn’t know if it were

gift or curse, the line between such a blur.

 

Finally, it was my time to inherit the fame

of visions and feelings, yet not the same.

The legacy now was purified, to use for the Lord:

trying sometimes, convoluted others, never a bore.

Prophecy and interpretation the Spirit gave to me,

that the world might hear, learn and see.

A Royal Wedding ~~ poetic heritage

©copyright 2004 Bonita M Quesinberry, R.C.

 

One of my grandfathers, thrice great or more, 
came from Britain to America’s shore.
British aristocrats, he and his wife, 
quickly gained rich ground without any strife.
They were English, this Questinbury clan,
whose own slaves worked their Quesinberry land. 

Soon there were daughters catching young men’s eyes,
and handsome sons: tall, strong, ready to ride.
The youngest set out to see this nation,
slave driving not to be his vocation.
He rode rugged, wild southwest trails;
weathered hardships and never got frail.

Then one day, he met the girl of his dreams—
and, he must have been made for her, it seems—
for with her father it soon was agreed:
“A royal wedding to be,” was decreed.
She was a princess with long silken hair,
graceful in stride with features fine and fair.

Young Quesinberry started his new life,
wrote that he would bring home his special wife.
Slaves rushed to clean and dust the plantation,
planning many gala celebrations.
That royal bride must see them at their best,
and it’s highly polished family crest.

The long awaited day at last arrived:
two riders rode up the long, tree-lined drive.
Rejoicing turned to dismay and alarm:
there was an Indian on this son’s arm.
They never would receive a Cherokee:
forgot Questinburgs had fled Germany.

Thus, this his youngest son, father disowned;
 him and her sent from family and home.
The name’s spelling again would get a change,
Cherokee blood would subtly rearrange.
There are only a few Quesinberry’s,
and some of those spell it Quisenberry. 

My staunch grandfather asked about my thoughts
concerning this tree his forefathers wrought.
Fearing my boldness, my aunt held her breath;
sure I’d anger him, even cause his death.
“They were a bunch of snobs,” I bluntly said.
His laughter roared as his face turned bright red.

So, I’m a little Cherokee princess,
Then another bit of German empress,
And a wee bonnie lass of Irish cream,
together with some French and Brit, it seems.
Oh, and a Castilian Spanish quarter.
All these should just about set the mortar.

Of course, they did have that big plantation;
so who can say who are my relations?
Who and whatever, I do love them all.
They were a bunch of snobs! That is my call.
Perhaps, she’s why I love nature’s features:
trees and flowers, and all of God’s creatures.

MATTHEW, Chapter 1: Some of God’s Secrets Within

MATTHEW, Chapter 1: Some of God’s Secrets Within, learn why it is necessary to not only study God’s Word as He instructs (see August article, God’s Instructions for Study) but also to conduct historical research for clarity. 

Chapter 1 appears simply to cite Christ’s lineage beginning with Abraham up to Jesus’ birth, a genealogical chart most find boring and skip over. A brief reminder of ancient prophecies citing a coming Messiah is included. Our Father provided instructions for a specific manner by which to study His Word, thereby promising to reveal His mysteries and secrets. It safely is assumed that related passages from books such as Luke, Genesis, Exodus and others should be consulted. Thus, Matthew c.1 discloses not only the month of Christ’s birth but the exact dates of His death, resurrection and ascension to heaven (see September article, Christ’s Birth, Death and Resurrection). But, for the purposes of chapter 1, only His birth is discussed in depth.

Additionally, beginning at Adam an approximate passing of earth’s years are disclosed, which will be covered first. And, in all these is detected the true depth of Matthew c.1 while imparting a deeper understanding of God’s mysterious ways in which He works to the good of His children, yet to the destruction of unbelief. “The Truth shall set you free…” of men’s doctrines and traditions, those things the Lord abhors.

Matt. 1:1-17— from Abraham to Jesus is 42 generations (14 x 3). Using the statistical average of 30 years from one generation to the next (14 x 3 x 30) equates to approximately 1260 years having expired at Christ’s birth. But, there is more in…

Luke 3:23-38—sets out Jesus’ lineage beginning with Adam for a total of 74 generations. Additionally, Genesis and Exodus provide 22 exact generations from Adam through Jacob totaling exactly 2636 years, to wit:

Adam was                    130        when Seth was born

Seth                             105                  Enos

Enos                              90                  Cainan

Cainan                           70                  Mahaleel

Mahaleel                        65                  Jared

Jared                            162                  Enoch

Enoch                             60                  Methuselah, the longest living human

Methuselah                   187                  Lamech

Lamech                        182                  Noah

Noah                            500                 Shem (Sem)

Shem                            100                 Arphaxad

Arphaxad                     530                  Sala

Sala                                30                  Heber

Heber (Eber)                  34                  Phalec

Phalec (Peleg)                30                  Ragau

Ragau (Reu)                   32                  Saruch

Saruch (Serug)               30                  Nachor

Nachor (Nahor)             29                  Thara

Thara (Terah)                 70                  Abraham*, the father of nations

Abraham (Abram)        100                  Isaac

Isaac                              60                  Jacob

Jacob                             40                  Juda (Judah)

                                  2636 years

Beginning with Judah up to but not including Jesus, the Bible speaks not a word about those men’s ages when each of their designated heirs were born. It does, however, provide sufficient clues to determine not only the year in which Christ was born but as well the very month yet not the exact day. There is a very valid reason for these Biblical omissions, which will be discussed later. Therefore, adding a statistical figure for the unknowns to the exact sum, an approximate passage of time from Adam up to but not including Jesus reflects approximately 4196 years have expired of earth’s 6000 years time allotment: 74 generations minus 22 known years times 30 plus 2636 known years = 4196 years, that is  [74 – 22 = 52 x 30 = 1560 + 2636 = 4196].

Earth has 6000 years? That too is scripturally proven but should be covered in another Bible study. Nevertheless, c.1 also leads to Christ’s birth. In order to achieve accuracy, it is only logical that a Hebrew calendar be applied to God’s Word. After all, Hebrews wrote the Bible thus all Biblical dates are based on their calendar. To use any other, such as today’s Gregorian, would produce falsehood. Note, however, that the Hebrew calendar is in use even today and, always, Sunday is the first day of the week and Saturday the seventh day: lending validity to observing Saturday as the Lord’s Day.

The only differences between Hebrew and Gregorian calendars are number of days in each month as well as which month is deemed first of a new year. The Gregorian new year begins with January while the Hebrew begins with September. Gregorian months contain from 28-31 days and the Hebrew alternates between 29-30. By these differences are Biblical interpretations often made in error or an outright lie taught. A perfect example is teaching that no one knows when Christ was born, which is a bold-faced lie. ALL theologians thus ALL tutored pastors do know. They know a lot more than ever will be taught from their global pulpits. And, they have a very valid reason for keeping quiet! God’s Truth reveals them for who they really are amidst the church.

Matt. 1:18-21— finds Mary pregnant and unmarried, yet Joseph is directed to marry her anyway, the former finding which leads us to…

Luke 1:26-31 and 2:6— v.26-31 reveal that angel Gabriel came to Mary in the 6th month, at which time she conceived by way of the Holy Ghost. Without getting into scripture validating Gabriel acting in God’s power as the Holy Ghost, which also is another Biblical lesson, nonetheless he did and still does, therefore supporting the premise of Mary’s conceivement when Gabriel came to her. Further, there is no word that he came to her yet a second time, thus it had to have occurred at that moment.

The Hebrew calendar cites the 6th month as Adar or February of the Gregorian calendar. C.2, v.6 states that Mary fulfilled her period of gestation at the time she and Joseph arrived in Bethlehem for government taxation, without any mention of problems tending to suggest early or late delivery. Therefore, accepting her gestation period as normal and applying the appropriate time frame to begin sometime in Adar (February), it concludes that Jesus was born at a time in Cheshvan (October) of 3BC. The year is determined by who was ruling as king at the time of Christ’s birth, which is confirmed via validated historical records providing not only king Herod’s reigning years but also the date of his death. The latter is important to Christ’s return from hiding in Egypt and his appearance in the temple at age 12, also another Bible study lesson.

In summary of verses 1-21: discovered has been Jesus’ genealogy, the approximate passage of years up to His birth and the time of His birth. Further, it should be noted that October in the Holy Lands is the same October we all know: autumn, the last month of harvest time (Aug-Oct), a warm season when shepherds’ flocks still would be in the fields. Winter there was and remains the same as ours and their winter temperatures are very cold, thus flocks are brought in from the fields and stabled during those months. So, why are nativity scenes always set in snowy winter conditions as well as timed for the month of December? There is not one supporting Biblical scripture validating such a time or condition, yet there are sufficient to support autumn’s harvest time. Harvest time also is a key feature of prophecy. Ah, but these too are other Bible study lessons. Nonetheless, now comes:

Matthew 1:22-23— wherein ancient portents predicting a coming Messiah are referred to by way of supporting evidence that Mary indeed carries that Messiah who shall be called Emmanuel (Immanuel), interpreted “God with us.” Every book of the Old Testament cites a little or a lot regarding a Saviour who one day would save God’s people from their sins, even Genesis. The latter first alludes to Christ as well as to His battle with Lucifer in c.3, v.15. From there and throughout the Old Testament, clues begin to gain in both momentum as well as containing more definitive information.

Matthew 1:24-25— then confirms that Joseph did as the Lord commanded and married Mary. We are enlightened, however, that Joseph did not know his wife intimately until after Jesus was born. Why? Christ’s conception and birth was to be of a virgin. Had Joseph known his wife prior to Jesus’ birth, she no longer would have been a virgin and God’s Word would have become a lie.

It should seem obvious now that the first chapter of Matthew contains much more than the naked eye first reads, as does every book and chapter of the Bible. But more, this chapter should raise a lot of questions in the minds of all Christians seeking only God’s Truth as opposed to the smooth words of “men’s doctrines and traditions”, all of which ultimately will be answered as Bible studies continue. One question can be answered in summary…

Why didn’t God just cite all the facts in one book or chapter? If He had, two things might have happened: 1) Lucifer would have made it impossible for the layman to have their own Bible because they might discover the truth about him and his ways; and, 2) vessels of dishonour might “discover the truth and obey, yet only marginally” (lukewarm). What better way to assure they do not than by hiding His Truths throughout the Bible and then instructing only His children in how to glean said Truth in whole?

~~ Thus, Matthew 1 is concluded.
