Message to Our Brethren:
As Paul said, so RDK says to our brothers and sisters, “Wherever you are, my beloved, you have always obeyed, not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence; thus work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for it is not I but God who prompts you to do His will and His good pleasure. Do all things without complaint and disputes: that you may be found blameless and sincere as sons (and daughters) of God, without blemish in the midst of a crooked and perverse people, among whom you shine as lights in the world; obey and teach the word of life (God’s Commandments**), that I may rejoice in the day of Christ’s (return), knowing that I have not failed to direct you in Truth and laboured in vain for you.” (Phil 2:12–16 AKJV, paraphrased; ** Ten Commandments aka “Statutes of Life” aka “Truth” )

News: A few days ago twin tornados, one having touched down, were filmed at a small town near Spokane, WA. While no damages were reported, it was stated that tornados are rare in Eastern Washington but even more rare for this time of year, even in the United States’ infamous Tornado Alley . . . Ya’ think?

Humor: A man decided to take his nagging wife to Jerusalem for vacation, where she died. The mortuary advised that it would cost $150 to bury her in one of their beautiful garden cemeteries or $5,000 to ship her back home to the U.S. The man considered it for a moment then opted to ship her home. The mortician asked why when it would be so much cheaper in Israel. “Well,” the man said, “a long time ago there was a man buried here that later rose up from the grave; so, I don’t want to take any chances.” ~ anonymous

Iran Seeks Death Penalty:
Sister Tammy reported Wednesday’s Florida news, which included a story about Iran intending death for Yousef Nadarkhani, a husband/father and pastor at the non-denominational Church of Iran: a born and raised Iranian Muslim citizen. Arrested in October 2009, he has been jailed in solitary confinement for the last 2–years for converting from the Muslim faith to Christianity – a Muslim crime of apostasy, which carries the death penalty for Muslim men and a life sentence for Muslim women who leave the Muslim faith for Christianity – as a result he also was declared a terrorist. Iran offered freedom 3–times, IF Yousef would denounce Christianity. Death was in order when 3–times he refused to return to the Muslim faith.
—— The UN, ACLJ, and several other organizations might come to Yousef’s aid. This incident gives meaning to God’s declaration, “Satan slays his own.” He has been doing this since permanently banished to earth: persecution or death for reasons that might apply in any given era. Today, he persecutes or kills his goats to deceive Christ’s sheep about events marking our Lord’s imminent return.
—— In an effort to fulfill God’s prophecy of Christ’s remnant persecuted during the last church age Laodicea– John cited what seems to be the church pursuing the church with beatings, false imprisonment and/or death– Lucifer also must have his ministers and goats timely persecuted: this, to convince the world his great whore, her harlot daughters and their members are Christ’s only true remnants. What better way could more humans be drawn into apostate religions? Papal Rome recently classified her apostates as Orthodox Christian sects; Messiah’s remnant labeled heretics and terrorists.
—— Lucifer’s synagogues cannot be the remnant because each observes Sunday– or the Muslim Friday, also without God’s Seal– “in homage to Papal Rome;” albeit, there are this era’s “cold” seeking Truth and, possibly unaware, still in Satan’s churches. They and some misguided Sabbatarians could become confused when seeing both Satan’s goats and Christ’s sheep persecuted simultaneously; although, more goats will be killed than sheep. The cold seekers’ question, however, might be, “Which is the true church? The ‘Orthodox’ or those wholly obedient to God’s Ten Precepts that depend upon love?”
—— In their minds, the answer to the question might be, “The ones with the largest number of members:” typically assuming, by false teaching, that those sects small in number means the true is the false. Large in number is intended to mean ‘orthodox;’ the ‘mainstream’ or ‘moral majority’ and their rule-of-thumb is “the majority rules.”
—— We must bear in mind, and remind those confused, that the Bible describes Christ’s flocks as “small,” even telling us not be alarmed by our small numbers in comparison to Satan’s legions; for we have the power of God, who is not impressed by large numbers. Numbers do not reflect the fruit of either Satan or Christ: Satan’s fruit is defined as large numbers of sinners (goats). God’s fruit is delicious with acceptance and obedience of the Truth we deliver to those who will instantly follow Christ: “many are called, few are chosen.” God’s rule-of-thumb is “the smallest rules; the first are last and the last first. God’s way is pure justice!
—— A prime example of The Destroyer’s intent for Laodicea began with an event so big and astounding that it made world news for days on end and caused preachers of every ilk to declare “persecution of THE Church has begun:” the attempted assassination of Pope John Paul II, bullet wounds serious enough that death was the immediate prognosis.
—— The shooting of John Paul kicked off numerous “persecutions” continuing today among Lucifer’s flocks of goats: i.e. American and British missionaries arrested in the Middle East for handing out Orthodox Christian fliers; other U.S. pastors and missionaries imprisoned or killed in Africa; Catholic priests killed, missionaries in the Dominican Republic jailed for attempting to take children out of the country– the list goes on and we have been hearing about them more and more frequently since 1991 and more so after Pope John Paul’s near death experience.
—— We must recall that Christ’s flocks are small and also remember how to discern who is persecuting whom. In this phase of prophecy, Satan is persecuting his own while they persecute Christ’s remnant, believing we are the cause of their suffering both physically and financially. We have only to consider the Branch Davidians’ massacre to discern the difference between persecutions of the true church versus the false singling out goats. Satan’s great plan is God’s greater plan altered; therefore, it should come as no surprise that he is attempting to confuse the persecution issue.
—— Another important fact involves so many people who believe they do not have to read or understand the prophecies, specifically The Revelation; in fact, RDK recently reported many preachers telling their flocks NOT to read Revelation, for they are to trust the interpretation those leaders give to them. Pastor Yousef’s story and its implications reveal why it is vital for God’s people and Christ’s remnant to know and understand the Spirit’s interpretation of The Revelation – as given by God’s prophets – for without understanding, there are many prophetic events Satan has twisted that otherwise could easily deceive the elect; although, the same could and would deceive Christ’s followers who are not the elect 144,000 as well as the lukewarm and cold.
—— Speaking of the Muslim faith, keep in mind that Muslim is another harlot daughter and, in fact, is a member of the World Church (WC) and sits on its governing board, the World Council of Churches (WCC). Many are teaching that the Muslim religion is the “antichrist” and it might be supposed that one could deem it so because of its Papal Rome birth; however and while Muslim is a daughter, created by Rome to turn the world’s condemnation away from her mother; that the world cast hatred and violence upon the Muslims. Yet on the other hand, the UN and others are wondering why Rome has not come to Yousef’s aid. It is no different than the last 2000–years of Rome’s Protestant and Pagan daughters denying her as their mother while blaming her for evil’s presence in the world. Today, they all openly united with Rome and urge others to do so as well.

There are many scriptures throughout the entire AKJV Bible that confirm the necessity of obeying God’s Law as well as having the faith of and in Jesus Christ; albeit, the full weight of John’s statement below has not been taught properly: as part of the many. Since it has been easy for man to lie by omission about not only John 3:16 but verse 36 as well, we felt an Extra Oil should be devoted to John’s words. We begin with an oversight in teaching John 3: 36 —
“He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.” (John 3:36 AKJV)
—— Many people miss an important point in Apostle John’s verse; in fact, most think that left of the colon has the same meaning as right of the colon: one believes, the other does not believe Christ. Note that it first says one must believeth on, or that, Jesus is God’s Son— it is John 3:16,36 many church leaders use to teach belief and faith as being one and the same and faith by God’s grace is all it takes to enter His heavenly kingdom. Paraphrasing John 3: 36, enhanced by a ton of relevant scriptures from throughout the Bible, lends clarity:
—— “He that believes Jesus is God’s Son has eternal life and he that does not believe Jesus is God’s Son shall have eternal death; so he that does believe in Jesus and does the Son’s teachings shall have eternal life, for God’s blessing is on him; and he that does not believe and do the Son’s teachings shall have eternal death, for God’s wrath is on him.”
—— Belief is to accept something or someone as a fact, truth, reality, based on the witness of another greater. Faith is to trust something or someone based on the witness of another greater: trust a person to be who they claim to be thus trust that person’s teachings and promises, and trust that obeying his or her teachings is in our best interest: which reaps the promised reward of everlasting life.
—— The next part of John’s statement reveals an additional requirement of believers: “he that believeth not the Son” will not have eternal life. The latter is saying we are to believe all things Jesus said and did, our belief evidenced by doing and saying all that He lived and taught. We are to believe on (in) Jesus and believe His teachings: His words do not deter from the Father’s, being the only words God had given Christ. Further proof of this premise is in God’s Words of the Old Testament, but we will go to I John in the New Testament; mainly because the world has been taught, in error, that the Old Testament no longer applies – we are to live only the New – despite the O.T agreeing entirely with Christ’s witness.
—— “Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God . . .” (continues in paraphrase) “and everyone who loves God, who created Jesus, also loves Jesus. By this we know we love the children of God: when we love God we obey His Commandments. For this is the love of God, that we obey His Commandments and His Commandments are not grievous. For whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world (sin): and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcomes the world but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.”
(I John 5: ~1, 2-5)
—— Note: AKJV translators closed that last sentence with a question (?) mark because “Who is” seems to imply a question follows but, while it is grammatically correct, it is a punctuation error. The statement is adamant, as opposed to being in question, thus it should close with a period for proper understanding of a factual definition of “who overcomes and how he or she overcame,” both answered in that last sentence.
—— “When we love God we obey His Commandments.” And, if we love God, we instantly love Christ. Throughout those short verses, God’s Commandments are named three times and referenced a fourth: “overcomes the world (sin).” Those are a lot of references amidst so few words; but, God’s Commandments are repeated throughout the Bible to the tune of nearly 50-pages of 8.5- by 11-inch paper: which reveals just how important the Statutes are to our life-temporary and our life-eternal.
—— Violating God’s Law IS to sin: “sin is transgression of the Law.” Transgression equals Disobedience by definition. Note that the passage also says, “even our faith,” meaning something else is required “in addition to” and prior to faith in order to justify a claim of faith: we are to obey God’s Law and have faith, that by our faith we obey God’s Precepts because we love God and His Son and since Christ also obeyed, “Do as I say, do as I do.” Faith leads to love leads to total obedience.
—— Faith in God is to believe He is the only God of Creation, as He declared, and Christ is His Son, as God and Jesus affirmed; and faith in Jesus is to believe He is the Son of God come to save both Jew and Gentile. Implied in the verses: many claim belief but it requires more on our part in order for our claim to be deemed true or false both by us and, more importantly, by God; which He judges our belief and faith “according to His Law.” One scripture says it all, paraphrased, “All men are judged by God’s Law; therefore he who is without the Law shall die without the Law, and he who lives the Law shall live in the Law.” And another, “Hearers of the Law are not justified (found guilty), but he who obeys the Law is justified (deemed innocent).”
—— If one is to be judged by God’s Law, is it not sensible that one would want to be sure he or she is obeying that Law? God asks, “Do they obey all of my Law, only part of it, or none at all of my Law, or are they obeying man’s form of my Law?” Obeying part or none or man’s form reaps a “twice dead” sentence: woe to those raised up in the second resurrection, for they shall be reduced to ashes.
—— More than faith is required? Case in point: even the demons believe Jesus to be the Son of God– in reality, they know He is the Christ– but they do not obey God’s Law, not even one of those Ten, one being the critical Seal of God, and certainly, neither of the two Laws of Love, except by condition. Therefore, Lucifer and his fallen angels never again will enter the heavenly kingdom. Rather, they will be reduced to “ashes upon which the saints will walk” on new earth. Sadly, those ashes will include all humans who did not repent of their sins against God and Christ, not even repenting near the end.
—— The critical Seal of God? Christ’s remnants know God’s Seal is the Fourth Precept seventh day Sabbath. How do God and we determine our claim of belief to be true? First, we believe in and have the faith of Jesus Christ; second, we obey all Ten Statutes because we love both God and our neighbor: “love fulfills all the Law.” Fulfill: “to carry out that which is expected; cause to be or happen; to do something required; obey; to complete” (Webster’s New World Dictionary, Collegiate Edition, ©1951).
—— One should be able to ascertain that, by definition of “fulfill,” love causes us to do that which is required by both God and Christ: obey God’s Doctrine, as Jesus instructed, His Doctrine being the Ten Commandments aka Statutes of Life, Law of Blessings, Law of Righteousness and other titles. By definition, one should awaken to the fact that Satan’s synagogues and his ministers not only twisted God’s intent for the words love and fulfill but also eliminated God’s Seal when man produced his own form of God’s Law.
—— IF we believe, have faith and obey, then we are assured that we bear the Seal of God. Which is? We obey God’s 7th–day Sabbath according to His observation guide; which rule for His Memorial Day is not only to rest: we are to rest from OUR works in favor of God’s works, be with family, worship God and Christ, visit the sick and wrongfully imprisoned, feed the hungry, clothe the naked and house the homeless.
—— The crying shame is that two-thirds of the Gentile population and ninety percent of the Jewish community, both Orthodox and purportedly Christian, believe and follow the lies Satan wove with the smooth words they love: the first day, Sunday, is fine with them– having been deceived that any day is fine, so ‘let’s use Sunday’– unaware that it is Lucifer’s Seal that never will unite with God’s insignia, either in belief or behaviour.
—— The Revelation, God’s final message to mankind, clearly confirms the requirements of us in three separate chapters and matching the verses taken from John and I John herein– in the order given: “This is the patience (wisdom) of the saints, they who obey God’s Commandments (Law) and have the faith of and in Jesus Christ.” Obeying God’s Law is the first requirement that proves our belief in and love for our Father God. Without satisfying this requirement, rather “fulfilling” it, we cannot hope to meet His second command.
—— The second comes by the first: demonstrate love, faith in and of Jesus by obedience because our Father said Christ is His Son. As meant to be from man’s beginning, Gentiles were/are adopted Jews of God- and Christ-believing Jews, as opposed to having formed another, radically different religion; which is to say “the majority remain apart from the true by preaching the lie of another Jesus”— offensive to God, Christ and His remnants.
—— OF (be and/or act like another) and IN (trust God’s words and do His ways) are defined differently, as specifically noted in God’s Word. “Faith of Jesus” might be vocalized in this manner: “I trust every word Jesus spoke, just as He trusted the Father’s words; and I trust that He rose from the grave, as He said the Father would do; I trust that, as Christ promised, He also will raise me from the grave as the Father raised Him.
—— “And finally, I have a faith like that of Jesus, which enables me to face a first death without fear of what man can do to my flesh body– as Jesus had the faith of God that enabled Him to hang on a cross until dead. Jesus had and I have the kind of faith that says, ‘No matter what man might do to me, as done to Christ, I will live again: God and Christ promised a reward of eternal life for my sincere devotion and obedience.'”
—— “Faith in Jesus” might be verbalized thusly: “I have faith in God that Jesus is His promised Son; and I believe Christ’s words, in accordance with God’s witness, that He is God’s prophesied Son. By two witnesses, God and Christ, the Old and New Testaments respectively, our Messiah was identified; therefore, I have faith in God thus in Jesus; that both are who they claim to be: I can trust every word of both God and Christ, for their words are exactly the same.”
—— Let our faith of and in Jesus be spoken and seen in our acts, “shout from rooftops!”

Closing Words: Dearest Brothers and Sisters, please feel free to copy and distribute the Extra Oils as you are led; pastors and ministers, also feel free to use the Oils for sermons.
—— Remember our consistent directions to Christ’s flocks: encourage one another; correct one another; pray for one another and our enemies; pray unceasing; speak only God’s Truth to warn the lukewarm and cold of this era; harm neither man nor any living creature; stand strong in faith–love–obedience, even if facing death; let no man deceive you in word or deed, for the time is at hand and Christ is about to be seen in the clouds.
—— A glorious day that will be, a day and hour filled, in heaven and earth, with 3–emotions: 1. Excited as we meet Jesus in the air; 2. God’s profound grief we will feel over His vile children left behind; and, 3. The wickeds’ unbridled fear as their “bodies fall upon earth from one end to the other end.” When we reach the Heavenly Kingdom, the Lord has assured our understanding of, and agreement with, God’s judgments.
—— Jehovah is a just and righteous God, our loving Father who always has been in control, never once faltering or tiring or even sleeping. He further promised that the day comes when we no longer will remember the painful, harrowing, temporary years of our life on old earth: a time of emotions surrounding and within us of both positive and negative, the latter often causing us confusion; a time when pain was either literal or emotional or both. Praise the Lord, for these times are quickly coming to an end!
Much love & prayers in Christ,

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.

Wow! I just looked out the window
and saw the bright shine a sunnin’.
Better git the leaf to the rakes,
and drink in a bit of funnin’
while leafin’ ’em into nice smiles.
Oops! Guess that word should’a been piles.
Oh! I Must be missin’ my strain;
for my pen’s become mighty blurred,
its ink comin’ out all crooked.
Uh, I’m s’posin’ that should be words.
Well, just blame that ole strain doctor
who poked ’round in my selector.
Aw, gees! Better quit while behind,
cuz this ain’t makin’ any cents.
Everone’s gonna think I’m nuts!
I just give those to the fence.
Really I do and they love ‘um.
Yep, those feathers are greedy bums!
