Extra Oil 56: Four Questions & God’s Answers – CORRECTED

Prophecy’s Extra Oil 56: Four Questions and Answers
©copyright 2010 Bonita M Quesinberry

 

The loudest argument among Christian sects concern God’s Law of Blessings; not just all Ten but more attention was and still is directed to His Fourth Precept in Exodus 20:8-11 and repeated in Deuteronomy c.5: the one about which Jesus said, “I also am Lord of the Sabbath.” The four queries presented herein are not about any specific of God’s Doctrine, although it is prudent to know God’s Doctrine by reading the above verses; however, the following paragraphs do make a few necessary, specific points for clarity of each inquiry with answers. Please open your Bible and read each reference given in these 3 pages.

Galatians 2:4-5, Jude v.4— Disagreements began during and with the Apostles’ ministry and steadily escalated over the next 1,976 years to date hereof: the first 1,810 years of that almost obliterated God’s Truth, His Doctrine Law written in stone by His own finger; which Truth is identified in Psalm’s as God’s Law. It is this Truth to which God referred when He spoke to the Sardis church age of Revelation 3:2— “Strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die.” ‘Almost obliterated’ relates to ‘ready to die.’

The Sardis era of 46 years was a time spent preparing-to-teach the Truth one more time during the Philadelphia period, during which 147 years God said the door was open and no man could shut it: Revelation 3:7-8, no man could stop God’s Truth from coming out of the wilderness where it had fled from Satan’s ‘flood of false doctrines.’ The only thing Satan could do, and still does, is to re-enforce his lies among Sunday-observing sects; this achieved by strong criticism and false charges against Christ’s few small flocks, who by love “obey God’s Precepts,” while Satan swears to his own that love is all that matters.

Today, the disagreements are heading toward violence against all who shun a Sunday sabbath made by man: not by God or Christ or the Apostles. Still, this Bible treatise is not on specific Laws; rather, it is about what God says regarding His requirements of all humans: those who love Him and follow His Son and those who do not. It goes without saying, what obedience reaps is quite the opposite of what disobedience receives.

God’s Answers to Four Questions:
AKJV paraphrased scriptures w/references
©copyright 2004 Bonita M Quesinberry, R.C.

1.  What did God say about changes in His requirements? Ecclesiastes 3:14-20; Deuteronomy 8:6,11

What God does is forever. Nothing can be added to nor anything taken from it. God does what He does so people will know Him as well as fear and respect His infinite power over earth, the heavens and all that are in and beneath them: His creation. What He established in the beginning is required now, and that which will be in the future was required also in the past.

Evil and sin entered into the Lord’s house of judgment and righteousness. Thus, God will judge the righteous and the wicked, for there is a time for every purpose and every work. God tests humans so they might learn that they are vain and no better than animals. All are made of dust and shall return to dust again.

Obey His Twelve Laws, also known as precepts, statutes and judgments. Behave in faith, total obedience and respect His authority. Fear forgetting the Lord by not keeping His law, judgments and statutes; which you were told from the beginning. [These are not ‘ordinances,’ another type of law]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2.  What did Jesus and the Apostles say about changes to God’s requirements? Matthew 5:17-20; I John 2:7; Acts 21:24, 16; Romans 2:13,15; 3;31; 1:25,30,31; Titus 1:16; James 2:24; Revelation 14:12; 22:14 – correction: Acts 21:24, 24:16

Jesus said, “Do not think I came to destroy the law. Neither dotting of an I nor crossing of a T shall be taken from or added to God’s law until heaven and earth pass away and all prophecy is fulfilled. Whoever breaks one of the Father’s laws and teaches others the same, he shall perish. But whoever obeys the laws and teaches others to obey, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. Unless obedience exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you shall not enter heaven.”

John said, “I give the old commandment which was from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning.”

Paul said, “Exemplify Jesus by behaving orderly and obeying the Lord’s Law. Work at having a clear conscience toward God and men. For the hearers of the law are not just before God. But, the doers of the law shall be vindicated. Their behavior demonstrates the law written in their hearts and their conscience will not allow them to disobey. They live the Lord’s unchanged law.

“False preachers and prophets twist God’s truths into lies, teaching doctrines and traditions that worship and serve the creature more than God. They are covenant-breakers, haters of God, professing to know God but their works deny Him in disobedience. We of the Lord are not like these who defile God’s Word. For we walk by faith, not by sight, and work hard at obeying His laws so God will accept us. We are defended by works and faith. One without the other is death.”

John said, “Those who do as Christ did are the ones who obey the commandments of God and possess the unshakable faith of Jesus, even in the face of death. Blessed are they who do God commandments, for they will have right to the tree of life and may enter the gates into the holy city in the new earth.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

3.  In ancient times what did the Lord warn of and what is He today still saying to the world? Jeremiah 22:29; 23:1,11,14

“O earth, earth, earth, hear the word of the Lord. Woe to the pastors who destroy and scatter my sheep, for both prophets and priests are vile. Yes, in my house I have found their wickedness. They commit adultery and walk in lies. They strengthen evildoers, causing them not to return to me. They are to me like the wicked of Sodom and Gomorrah.

“Do not listen to their teachings, for they make you vain. They speak from their own heart and not with the mouth of the Lord. They lie when they say you shall have peace in the world and that no evil shall come upon you.

“Listen well, a whirlwind of the Lord’s fury will come upon the earth and it shall fall upon the wicked. The Lord shall execute His vengeance and in the latter days you will understand perfectly why He pours out His wrath. For you have perverted the words of the living God and twisted the truth of the Lord of hosts our God.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

4.  What will happen and who will remain after Christ returns for His small flocks, and why are they left behind? Matthew 24:27; Luke 17:24; I Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 16:17-18,20-21; Jeremiah 25:32-33; Matthew 24:28; Luke 17:37; Jeremiah 32:23

As the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, so shall Christ return in the clouds on the day appointed by the Father. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God sounding as a great voice out of the temple of heaven saying, “It is done!” and the dead in Christ shall rise first, then we which still are alive shall be caught up with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And, we always will be with the Lord from that day forward.

As Christ moves across the skies taking up His sheep, in His wake the seventh plague will be poured out. There will voices, thunders, lightnings and an earthquake such as the world has never seen. Every island will disappear and mountains will shatter into rubble. A great hail out of heaven,, each stone about 100 pounds, shall fall upon the wicked left behind.

A great whirlwind shall rise up from the coasts of the earth and on that the slain of the Lord shall lay dead from one end of the earth to the other end. They shall not be grieved for nor gathered up or buried. They will be like dung upon the ground. Wherever their bodies lie, there will the buzzards gather for a feast: because the wicked did not hear the Lord’s voice nor obey His laws. They did nothing that the Lord commanded them to do; therefore, this evil will come upon them in one hour during old earth’s last day.

How Do You Measure Up to God’s Law: Full Obedience, perhaps Partial or even Full Disobedience?
Know your end by your own judgment in answer to Ten, which takes love of God and man in order to obey.

Peace in Prophecy

©copyright 2006 Bonita M Quesinberry

 

Today, a common theological teaching about peace on this earth has been erroneously tied to prophecies of these end of days: that the antichrist will come in the form of a man and he will effect an end to national wars before Christ returns, only to later be revealed as the monster he is— NO, it is not President Obama— at which time they claim Christ will return to defeat this beast. Yes, peace is spoken of but not as various synagogue sects are teaching it. Verses hereinbelow are taken from the AKJV Bible and paraphrased for comprehension. The reader is urged to open their Bible to each one and read for self.

 

Paul advises in I Thessalonians 5:2-3, “You know perfectly well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. But when people are crying for peace and safety, then sudden destruction comes upon them, and they shall not escape.” Paul is telling us that, when the world has become weary of conflict and wars thus are crying out for peace, this will be the time in which Christ returns, destruction following behind Him; albeit, no one can cite a specific day and hour for His return but the time of year can be given. In short, those who are demanding world peace are one and the same as those cursing God for what we see happening all around us: such as the war in Iraq. There is no doubt the world is screaming for peace and has been for some time.

 

Jesus had several things to say about this desired peace from wars among mankind as well as in personal relationships. Matthew 10:34-36 addresses the latter, “I did not come to bring peace on earth. I came with a sword to cause conflict between a man and his father, the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man’s enemies shall be they of his own household.”

 

In Luke 12:51-52, Christ went on to say, “Do you think I have come to give peace on earth? I tell you, NO! I came to cause division. From this day forward, there shall be five divided in one house; three against two, and two against three.” Christ did not mean these numbers as specific, rather they are an example of division and conflict in a household.

 

Division? Conflict? Yes; for “many are called, few chosen.” This division by conflict represents removal of weeds, those who profess to be Christians but merely flatter with their lips— Satan’s goats in sheep’s clothing also referred to as grapes, per Revelation’s second resurrection— from amidst the wheat, Christ’s sheep who are harvested in the first resurrection. Therefore, this last church age, classified also as end times, represents God’s angels coming ahead of Christ to extract the weeds currently choking the wheat’s roots, for the ultimate purpose of burning those weeds: Matthew 13:37-42.

 

Following behind these angels, as they precede Him with fire as it were, is Christ in the clouds moving from east to west as He “harvests wheat,” which is to say He takes up His small flocks noted in Revelation 14:14-16. Other scripture tells us that “every eye shall see” this event, proving false the teaching of a rapture where people simply disappear; and another scripture says “they know perfectly why they are left behind; and yet another says they “die at the brightness of His coming.” Following in Christ’s wake, however, is the seventh plague of Revelation 16:18-21, which renders everyone left behind quite dead for a period of, as Revelation 20:5 indicates, one thousand years. (see also Nahum 1:5)

 

Jeremiah 25:32-33 validates the above, “Thus saith the Lord, ‘Behold, evil shall go from nation to nation, and a great whirlwind shall be raised up from the coasts of the earth. And those the Lord has slain in that day shall be left lying from one end of earth even to the other end of earth: they shall not be grieved for, neither gathered nor buried; they shall be waste upon the ground.” This is what Satan will live with for one thousand years.

 

This same timeframe represents the sheep’s stay in heaven as well as the time allotted for earth’s Sabbath rest (Leviticus 26:35; Jeremiah 50:34; Zechariah 1:11; Zephaniah 3:8)— earth’s seventh thousand years, during which earth lies fallow and unable to support life; much like an abyss, a void or bottomless pit, such as it was described in Genesis 1:2 before life was created upon and in earth. It is this bottomless pit to which Satan will be metaphorically chained, meaning he cannot leave the planet, cannot fly the heavens: all by himself on a sleeping earth with the stench of decaying bodies rising in his nostrils for one thousand years, with nothing to look forward to except his utter destruction at the close of those years. (Revelation 20:1-3)

 

Regarding wars, Matthew 24:4-15 and Mark 13:5-14 tells us exactly what to expect in these end days just before His return: “Don’t let anyone deceive you, for many shall come in my name, even saying that I am Christ or that they are Christ, but they shall deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumours of wars, but do not be troubled; for all these things must come to pass before the end. Nation will battle nation, kingdoms against kingdoms; there shall be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. These are the beginning of sorrows.

 

“The wicked will cause you to be afflicted and shall kill you, and you will be hated by everyone for my name’s sake. Many will be offended and shall betray and hate one another. Many false prophets will deceive the majority and sin will abound while the love of many believers will wax cold. But, he that endures persecution until the end, for having preached the gospel as a witness to the world*, then he shall be saved when the end comes. The end will come when you see the abomination of desolation*, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place of Jerusalem.” (see also Daniel 11:31)

 

*The first event Jesus speaks of is the preaching of the gospel, which directly relates to Revelation 10:11 instructing that the truth be preached one more time after having been hidden in the wilderness for 1260 years; during which time Satan flooded the world with false doctrines in God’s name (Revelation 12:6,13-15). The “preaching again” was fulfilled during the Philadelphia church age, 1844 to 1991 AD, Revelation 3:7-13. And, it continues today by the hot who reach out to cold or lukewarm (Revelation 3:14-22).

 

*The second event Christ mentions is just one of many signs of earth being in its final church age, Laodicea, in which Jesus is no longer saying “I will come soon” — as He had said in the previous two church ages of Sardis and Philadelphia; rather, He is now saying He will come quickly. Therefore, Christ is referring to Laodicea in Matthew 24:22, “Unless those days are shortened, no one will be saved; however, for the elect’s sake, those days shall be shortened.” We may rightly understand that this last church age will be the shortest of the previous six eras, of which Sardis was the shortest at 46 years; having extended from 1798 AD to 1844. We are now 16 years into Laodicea.

 

Desert Storm of 1991— Revelation 16:16, Armageddon, Luke 21:20,27-28 — trumpeted Laodicea’s beginning, while sightings of “the abomination of desolation” reveals time accelerating to a quick close. The abomination of desolation, that is Satan’s representative, was seen in the Holy City of Jerusalem in 1991 and again in 1993 for the last time (see article “Pure Organic Logic”).

 

It should be abundantly clear that there never will be peace from conflicts and International wars on this old earth, because II Timothy 3:1-5,13 notes the wicked waxing worse in these end days: wickedness does not promote peace. This being the case, there is no way mankind shall experience peace from wars and conflicts; not until evil is utterly destroyed and earth made new. Jesus clarified: the only peace one currently can experience is internally, as He gives, and the peaceful personality His sheep present to the world— noted in John 14:26-27 — and who have peace with God, Romans 5:1-2.

 

Laodicea is the most perilous age for true believers: it is filled with wars and threats of wars, Revelation’s first six plagues are poured out, each of which have been gaining in momentum and intensity since 1991; and, according to Revelation 7:3, the fury of natural elements were released as well: inasmuch as the sealing work was completed when Philadelphia ended.

 

It was during Philadelphia that the angels of the “four winds of earth”— elements such as snow, whirlwinds, rains/floods, earthquakes and volcanoes; these being God’s weaponry reflecting His wrath (Job 37:2-6; 38:22-23; Psalm 148:8; Proverbs 26:1)— were instructed to hold back those winds “until sealing was finished.” As soon as completed, the winds were released (see article “Elements of God’s Love ~ Tsunami”).

 

If we look for world peace prior to Christ’s return, we look for that which will never happen and, as such, will be unprepared when Christ comes in the clouds. If we look for Israel’s ancient temple to be rebuilt, we look in error; for Daniel 9:20 advises that Christ portended the temple destroyed after Christ (Matthew 24:1-2). In 70 A.D. the temple was destroyed.

 

Daniel further stated that the temple would never be rebuilt again: “even until the consummation,” which means not even when Christ returns; and, today, a Moslem Mosque sits on its foundation. Why? Because Christ will not reign here on this old earth while she lies fallow; rather, He takes up His sheep to heaven to remain during her thousand years of Sabbath rest. Additionally, when we return with Him, New Jerusalem will “come down out of heaven and there will be no temple therein; for God and Christ are the temple.” (Revelation 21:1-2,22)

 

Throughout the New Testament, peace is spoken of as being within a person; as such people behaving peacefully and encouraging peace; also a blessing in the form of “peace be with you” as well as “peace upon the household” of one who accepts the disciples’ teachings of God and Christ and who are obedient. If it were possible for every human to be peaceful within and without, there would be no conflicts or wars near and far; however, that is impossible as long as evil reigns on earth.

 

Inasmuch as the sealing work has been completed, we now are living the years of Revelation 22:11-12, “He that is unjust, let him remain unjust: and he which is filthy, let him still be filthy: and he that is righteous, let him remain righteous: and he that is holy, let him continue to be holy. And, Jesus said, ‘Behold, I come quickly.'”

 

Therefore, the end days’ instruction to Christ’s sheep is to be fully dressed in God’s Armor while keeping our eyes on the clouds; for Jesus is even at the door and earth has been  “reeling to and fro like a drunkard” for quite awhile (Isaiah 24:19-22). Time is incredibly short; so, let this serve as a heads up to every professed Christian whom God deems cold or lukewarm (Revelation 3:14-22). Repent— repent— repent quickly and totally.

 

——Watch the clouds between mid-October to mid-November henceforth until no later than 2011. The book of Hebrews says Jesus will not be late. If not fully converted now, time is your enemy; total conversion must be instant, this day, TODAY: do not delay. Pray unceasing! Be watchful; stand fast even to death. WE HAVE GOD’S POWER. KEEP WALKING and TALKING, even when it seems useless: you might snatch one lost, lukewarm sheep from the flames and give the warmth of God’s Truth to a cold waiting for it. Saith the Lord, “Ye lukewarm await consuming fire.”

TRUTH: God’s sheep give even in a state of poverty, often giving more than tithes: never go without or have too little, as God promised. 

VASHON, WA— a Puget Sound island accessible by ferryboat, boasts myriad Sunday denominations only. Last week, islander Jan Osborn asked her Sunday minister to start holding Saturday services, stating it as God & Christ’s Sabbath day and Seal. He said he would “think about it,” revealing knowledge of God’s truth yet avoiding it; likely in fear of losing his “paid” pastoral job: the most common reason for refusing total obedience to God and Christ. All Sunday leaders know God’s truth: some need only urging into full compliance, others to be walked away from. Which is your denomination and pastor?

How many of Christ’s sheep are still attending Sunday synagogues, despite knowing God’s truth, despite God’s plea that you “come out of her?” As a sheep, have you urged your pastors to accept, honor and obey God’s Fourth Precept, as set out in Exodus 20:8-11 and as established at creation, for the sound reason that it is His and Christ’s Seal of Authority over the universe, earth and all that is in and upon it, including mankind?

If you did ask and your pastor declined, did you shake off that church’s dust from your feet when you left, to never go that way again, as the Bible instructs? OR, are you one of Sunday’s goats blindly treading Satan’s easy, smooth road to utter destruction? Do you really want this life to be all there is? Staying on his road leads to annihilation in YOUR lifetime, not a hundred or more years from now— within two years from today.

Recall Jesus overturning the moneychangers’ tables and throwing them out of God’s Holy Temple on the Sabbath Day? The Pharisees wanted Him dead for that! Do you have His strength from God upon you to stand before your pastor and parishioners to speak God’s Truth? When do God and Christ and their Holy Word become more vital to you than a chosen denomination, its preacher and/or beloved fellow members; more important than mother, father, brother, sister, or friend; more important than your very life? Christ said, “If you love these more than me, you are not worthy of me.”

“Why halt ye between two opinions? Either you are for God or you are not!” You see, ancient Israel became torn between God and paganism, even as she is today with three different religions and sabbaths in her midst. Did you read what happened to the Jews for such abominations? The dregs of God’s wrath are now upon the entire earth; this time it is final, absolute and forever. So saith our Lord and Saviour, “I come quickly.” And, we say as John said, “Come, Lord Jesus, come!”

A World Without End?

 Many are familiar with Drs. Jack and Rexella Van Impe, a husband and wife TBN televangelist team, who adamantly point to their doctorate degrees in Bible theology: first clue they attended man’s seminaries, where taught “man’s commandments and traditions” as well as man’s interpretation of Revelation and related prophecies instead of spiritual interpretations. Accordingly, this is about the end days we live— Laodicea in the midst of Armageddon ongoing— and, more specifically, about what happens when Christ returns.

Sunday, 21 January 2007: Dr. Van Impe spoke of Christ’s return to earth, fiercely telling about instruction by some unnamed Christian denominations purportedly teaching that earth will end; “utterly destroyed— become asteroids and comets floating about space”— and, eventually, a new planet earth will be created apart from this original one. Not! In fact, TSaS does not know of any denomination teaching the end in this manner; though the majorities teach it with many errors.

Van Impe then pointed to Papal Rome and other specific yet unidentified Christian sects he claims speak truth, that teach this “world without end.” He quoted various Old and New Testament verses to support his perception that this present earth will never be destroyed. Based on that perspective, Van Impe said Christ’s millennial reign MUST happen on this old earth; as opposed to heaven. Van Impe is both right and wrong.

According to Van Impe, we the people will not go to heaven for even a few days—in previous broadcasts, Van Impe taught that only “pastors, preachers and theologians will go to heaven when Christ comes in the clouds in either 2007 or 2008, their stay in heaven for a period of seven years in preparation for coming back with Jesus to help Him teach us God’s truth again for 1000 years;” a principle based on claims that the 70-weeks/490-years prophecy of Daniel 9:24-27 has 7 years left to be fulfilled as well as supposedly to fulfill the “prophesy again” admonition of Revelation 10:11. Van Impe and associates failed to recognize Revelation 3:7-8 as fulfilled in the Philadelphia church age.

Van Impe states that, by way of a purportedly secret Bible code, each of those pastors, preachers and theologians are actually named. All of this is wholly without Biblical merit, for there is no such thing as a secret code that is found much like working a letter-by-letter word puzzle; choosing a series of letters horizontally, vertically, up and down, and even diagonally and backwards, throughout various books of the Old Testament in their original Hebrew. The Bible does reveal God’s “secrets and mysteries” but in plain sight and in all languages, yet perceived only by studying the Bible as God directed and under the Holy Spirit’s tutelage: topically.

Nevertheless, Van Impe concluded his current argument by saying earth cannot be both totally destroyed and lived on at the same time, adamantly directing his next words to everyone believing otherwise, “You cannot have it both ways!” Again, Van Impe is right and wrong. Being right and wrong is a very dangerous place to be when Christ returns.

Earth IS a planet without end, intended to be forever populated with humans, as Van Impe quoted from Ecclesiastes 1:4, but he carefully avoided reciting all relevant scriptures clearly denying his claims for Christ spending Revelation’s 1000 years on this defiled orb; such verses rendering the above Christian organizations and Van Impe’s premise totally illogical. This lack of logic found in church leaders taught by man, instead of the Holy Spirit, leads people down a path of destruction ending in God’s pit of fire and brimstone. We must remember Paul’s admonition, “Do not be surprised that Satan can manifest himself as an angel of light, and that his ministers can do the same.”

Examine God’s perfect logic, reflected by His perfect number, for Christ and His sheep spending 1000 years in heaven:

ONE:
Since the entire 490 years of Daniel’s prophecy was completely fulfilled— by virtue of Christ’s ministry having been the first 3-1/2 years of the prophecy’s last 7 years and the remaining 3-1/2 years of it meant to end with minister Stephen’s death in 36 AD, as a sign of the prophetic “Time of the Gentiles” beginning, which occurred— then we first need to understand what the Bible means by “earth’s end.” It was obvious in Noah’s day that earth was destroyed by floods, only Noah and his family saved because the people did not listen to Noah’s warnings given over a period of 100 years.

The flood was earth’s first destruction followed by renewal. II Peter 3:5-7 continues from the great flood to say that, since the flood, earth is reserved to perish by fire, fire from heaven— this denies man’s teachings that it will be from nuclear bombs and other of man’s weaponry, which is to render a worldly interpretation of “fire from heaven”— fire is the only way to purify earth of man’s spilled blood and permeating wickedness.

God and only God brings final destruction; He does not need man’s puny weapons. The Philadelphia age served like Noah’s 100-years warning, except the warning of earth’s end by fire was given through 147 years, for Philadelphia ended in 1991; yet, the warning continues even in this Laodicea age. At an appointed time after our redemption, earth will be restored yet again: albeit, earth’s second restoration will be permanently without evil.

It should be clear: while earth is a permanent world, life in and on it perished once, save 8 people, and will again for a final time. This latter, however, will be for 1000 years instead of the 40 nights and days in Noah’s time, plus the five months it took the floods to recede. Thus, we review the manner of Christ’s return, for this too will disprove Christ reigning 1000-years on this grossly defiled planet.

TWO:
According to Mark 14:62, Jesus will be seen coming “in the clouds of heaven.” I Thessalonians 4:16-17, further states, “Christ comes in the clouds [of heaven] and gathers up His sheep, both the dead and living, to bring them together in the clouds [of heaven] to meet Him in the air; where we shall ever be.” The use of ever, in this case, means a long time, to-wit: 1000 years. To a finite mind it would seem like forever. “To ever be in the air” clearly means we will be located in the heavens, not on earth.

Additionally, Matthew 24:27 describes Christ’s journey across our skies as beginning in the east like the sun rises and moves to the west where the sun sets: fire preceding Him and the seventh plague of Revelation 16:17-21 following behind Him. Jesus said in John 14:2-3, “I go to prepare a mansion for you in my Father’s house. And if I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again to take you where I am, that you may be there also.”

Considering the fire preceding Jesus and the seventh plague pouring out in His wake, the combined scriptures from Revelation 14:9-11, Psalm 37:20; 114:3-8; Isaiah 26:14, 31:30,33; 33:14; 34:9-10; Habakkuk 3:3-6,11-15; Zephaniah 1:2-3, 3:6; II Thessalonians 1:7-9; II Peter 3:7 and Mark 13:31 reveal the condition of this earth once we are gone (paraphrased): “Earth’s streams are turned into pitch and its dust into fiery stone. The land has become burning tar. Wicked nations have been removed, leaving no living inhabitants, their streets waste and cities destroyed. And, the fires shall not go out night or day, and the smoke and torment of those who worshipped the beast and his image and whosoever bore the mark of his name shall go up for a thousand years, and from generation to generation the earth shall lay a wasteland. No creature, man nor beast, shall pass through it during the thousand years of earth’s Sabbath. For the old heavens and the earth now are reserved for consuming fire on the day of execution and perdition of ungodly men. Then, God will utterly purge all things from off the bloodied land: man and beast, birds and fish, and the stumbling blocks of the wicked.”

Does this sound like what happened to Israel? Indeed, it did, almost; but, as God said, “What was in the beginning is now, and what is now will be, and what will be was in the beginning.” What happened to Israel was to give us a semblance of what happens when God brings wickedness to an eternal end; for He did say, “There must be an end.” To say the wicked are tormented forever alludes to Revelation’s 1000 years.

If we are to remain on defiled earth for the next 1000 years, where is the logic in taking us up into “the clouds of heaven” or to have prepared a heavenly mansion for us? Why would Jesus remain in the clouds taking up His sheep across the world from east to west; and, why would we be traveling with Him in the clouds, IF He and we are to remain on earth for this purported reign? Why would Christ or we be staying in the midst of fire and smoke and rotting bodies? God tells us why Christ and we will not be staying here.

THREE:
We are advised in II Thessalonians 2:7-10 that the wicked immediately die at the brightness of Christ’s return— that brightness is equal to the suns of Orion, ten times the brightness of earth’s sun— and Revelation 20:4-6 states they will not live again for 1000 years; for they have part only in the second resurrection to a second death. Now we have a problem with those dead bodies, what to do with them if Jesus and we are staying on earth. How do so few sheep bury billions of rotting bodies?

Both science and the Bible confirm that, after only a few days, the stench is unbearable; as noted about Lazarus before Christ resurrected him. Dead bodies become extremely toxic to the environment and air we breathe. We have seen such decomposition cause all manner of diseases when there has been a catastrophic event: i.e. Indian Ocean tsunami that left over 285,000 dead bodies decomposing. There is no doubt our Lord could speak and all those bodies instantly disappear; but, it is not what God says will happen.

FOUR:
The Lord declares in Jeremiah 25:32-33, that the wicked He slays shall lie dead from one end of earth to the other end and they shall neither be grieved over nor gathered up to bury; in as much as they shall be like dung upon the ground. This being the case, there is no way we or Christ would remain on this old earth, for Jesus is to claim a purified earthly kingdom and Revelation 20:4-6 already rendered the understanding of how long they will lie dead on earth’s surface: 1000 years.

What is the purpose of leaving the wicked dead like dung? Fact: decomposing material, plant or animal or human, and even waste from these life forms, actually enriches soil over long periods of time. There is another requirement, however, that will add to the replenishing of earth so she may infinitely support life.

FIVE:
In order to keep the land healthy, rich and fertile, fully capable of sustaining life, God instructed in both Exodus 23:10-11 and Leviticus 25:2-7, that the land was to have a Sabbath rest every seventh year; which should clarify that earth is a living entity. Leviticus 26:35 and Joshua 14:15 tells us why this planet shall have its seventh thousand years as a Sabbath rest: because it was not given rest while man lived upon it. Man justified not letting the land lie fallow every seventh year by claiming it will not become depleted of nutrients if crop rotation is timely. Untrue!

Despite regular change, earth is now so depleted that testing reveals all produce and grains very low in nutrients. Greed was and is motive for not giving earth rest. Thus, between rotting material, ashes from the fire preceding Christ and earth resting for 1000 years, while healing from its wounds of wars, the soil will be totally restored by the time we return from heaven with Christ. All that would remain to be done will be to reduce the resurrected wicked to ashes, whereupon the righteous will walk, and the planet returned to its Eden-like state, then Christ begins His reign over God’s earthly kingdom.

SIX:
Further proof of our stay in heaven for 1000 years, instead of earth, is the fact that earth will be at rest therefore producing nothing to sustain mankind. She will lie fallow, unable to support life. This is where the first phase of Satan’s and wicked man’s punishment begins. Revelation 20:1-3 metaphorically describes Satan bound with chains to the bottomless pit of earth. Genesis 1:2 describes earth’s beginning as a void in darkness, which is the same state in which she shall have her Sabbath rest. Therefore, earth becomes a bottomless pit for Satan by virtue of no life upon it, except his.

How apropos that he should be bound to earth with nothing more than the stench of decaying bodies for 1000 years; not one living soul to tempt and torment with his utter cruelty and lies. However, the wicked dead do not sleep, as do those dead in Christ slept before resurrection; instead, the wicked’s spirit beings are conscious and “weeping and wailing and grinding their teeth,” because they know a second death is coming.

All Satan has to look forward to is a short release to tempt again the resurrected wicked, yet three months later he and they will be utterly destroyed: so completely that even the smoke of their ashes will disappear, that God never again be reminded of Lucifer and his followers. At this time of our return, we temporarily camp at Old Jerusalem with Christ. Now, the final reason Christ’s 1000-years reign with us will be in heaven.

SEVEN:
A beautiful description of New Jerusalem’s construction is given in Revelation c.2l; albeit, Zechariah 6:13,15 says Jesus will build New Jerusalem— God’s temple as it were— and that the sheep will be helping: “they that are far off” refers to heathens, the Gentiles who before had not known God yet came to accept God and Christ thus forsook their many false gods. New Jerusalem becomes the world’s capital from which Christ and God will rule.

It stands to reason that New Jerusalem is built in heaven, because once all wickedness is destroyed upon our return to earth, then Christ makes earth and the heavens new: this is the time where Revelation 21:1-2 reveals New Jerusalem coming down from heaven, adorned like a bride for her Groom: complete in every way and absolutely pure.

Based on the Holy City’s size, 2.250-million square miles (1500 mi by 1500 mi), it is realistic that we will be busy building for hundreds of years after the wedding and feast. Compare: it took Israel almost 480 years to rebuild the road from Rome to Jerusalem, rebuild the city and its walls and the temple, the latter having taken 40 years; none of which is nearly as large as it will be in the new earth.

Once again, God’s truth results in His perfect number seven; seven very sound reasons why neither Christ nor His sheep will remain on earth for the millennial reign. Would you want to remain on earth under the conditions God has described? Or, would you prefer the pure heavenly bliss of God’s files being revealed to us, that we understand His judgment, participating in the great wedding, then dining with our Lord, listening to Him speak and, finally, helping Him build New Jerusalem? Indeed, we shall be very busy; and, as for this house, we choose heaven any day and, like Apostle John, we pray that Christ’s return be quickly: for the wicked and filthy grow worse and worse.

The results herein turn Jack Van Impe’s words back onto him, “You can’t have it both ways.” Van Impe’s way, and those he supports, leaves their followers unprepared for Christ’s return: their teachings pave a wide, wide road to utter destruction.

——Watch the clouds between mid-October to mid-November now and until no later than 2011. Hebrews says Jesus will not be late. If not fully converted now, time is your enemy; total conversion must be instant, this day, TODAY: do not delay. Pray unceasing! Be watchful; stand fast even to death. WE HAVE GOD’S POWER. KEEP WALKING and TALKING, even when it seems useless: you might snatch one lost, lukewarm sheep from the flames. Saith the Lord, “Ye lukewarm await consuming fire.”

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. * * * * *

Because of the length of text, only the Wiccan website URL is provided here. Christians strongly are urged to check out this website and others like it. Discover what happens if we keep pagan holidays in the name of Christ— “The Witches Voice presents…THE HOLIDAYS OF WITCHCRAFT” at http://www.witchvox.com/holidays/ostara.html  

* * * * * 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).

——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.

Vol. II: Uncommon Common Abuse of Seniors & Elderly

Vol. II: Uncommon Common Abuse of Seniors and Elderly

©copyright 2008 Bonita M Quesinberry

 

 

As we pick up from Volume I of this issue, I remind that the agreement I had with my deceased friend Betty’s son was to stay and care for her property until the oldest heir turned eighteen, at which time he would move in and I find another place. The blessing to me was another 2 years in that peaceful spot in Washington’s Tahuya State Forest. January 2007: I had to get on HUD waiting lists for a unit and pray I’d be out no later than June 2007. Why did I wait so late? Well, Betty’s son had told me in December 2006 that he thought I would have another 3 years, so I dallied. Alas, it did not work out inasmuch as Derek’s son changed his plans.

 

First lunge out of the gate was a bleak start: I was number 47 on the list for a one-level complex in Poulsbo, a good hour and half farther away from my daughter/caregiver Maria in Portland, Oregon. Being in that position could have meant up to a two-year wait, which was not going to work. A week later, the floater manager in Poulsbo asked if I would be interested in a Shelton unit, an hour closer to Maria: I would be number one there and assured I could move in by mid-March or April at the latest. At that time, she cited six vacancies with more coming up and no one on the waiting list: my requirement for a ground floor unit was no problem.

 

Alas, on February 01, a permanent manager was installed at Fir Tree Park Apartments (FTP) and who contrarily acted in accordance with Allied Group’s direction, the management company for whom their floater in Poulsbo worked and also trained new site managers. She was told to fill up the complex before me and justify doing so by claiming there had been a waiting list of which the floater was not aware.

 

As a courtesy, certainly not a requirement, I had provided with my paperwork a letter from my doctor indicating the necessity of both a ground floor apartment, due to a propensity for falling, and air conditioning I would provide. It seems Allied did not want anyone moving in with A/C— increase the electric bill (I take measures to prevent this but they did not know it). This began to come to light during a phone call when the manager said she had put in five people ahead of me and continued to put me off due to yet more ahead of me. So, I called Poulsbo again to see if I had misunderstood: no, I had not. The floater got on the phone and the next day Fir Tree Park (FTP) called to say my paperwork was ready and I could move in by 11 May 2007. Praise the Lord, I would meet my June deadline as agreed!

 

Maria went with me to sign papers and pay the upfront fees. It was then the FTP manager informed us of Allied’s discrimination against my extreme sensitivity to heat disability, not wanting me in because of A/C. After signing and paying, we were then informed that Allied had said they would not replace the 30-year old, threadbare carpet if she let me in: a second act of discrimination as well as retaliation. Since I was getting an apartment, I chose to ignore this violation of law but had transcripted the details. Alas, it would not end there, for Allied truly did not want me or my air conditioning.

 

The unit was incredibly filthy and I spent over 36 hours getting it to a livable condition, then requested of Allied the return of my damage deposit, which was not paid to clean up another person’s filth. I had refused to sign the move-in inspection because the manager would not list problems thereon, as she was supposed to do. So, along with my request, I provided a transcript of labor to get the unit sanitary. I received no response whatsoever.

 

I had lived in the unit only three months when suddenly the manager accused me of failing to disclose the fact I had two caged ferrets. Despite proving I had made full discloser in writing, Allied continued its assault with threats, calls, inspections, demands, and unannounced visits by a variety of people from their home office; ultimately serving me with eviction because I refused to pay a $300 pet deposit ($150 per pet): which HUD did not allow on caged pets. I’d never had to pay a deposit for the ferrets in the entire 20 years I’ve lived in Washington, even through Bremerton Housing (Vol. I).

 

Now, I would have to do something. After all, Allied had filled my file with false charges and complaints that might make it easy for a judge to uphold the illegal eviction. I contacted Senior Information and Assistance (Senior I & A) who previously had helped me by purchasing a portable A/C unit. In the interim, I had been keeping meticulous records and transcripts of everything that had transpired from the time I went on FTP’s waiting list, including all details, dates, names, and witnesses to conversations: now days it pays to have a background in law.

 

Around October 2007, I received a call from HUD’s Ben Jones, the Washington State HUD Contract manager in charge of FTP’s portfolio. I followed his directions and mailed to him a copy of everything I had. After reviewing them, he then instructed me to provide everything to their department for discrimination acts: seems I had two separate cases, the other being acts of retaliation.

 

According to Mr. Jones, I needed only one witness to the discrimination and he stated that my daughter was sufficient. Mind you, I never contacted HUD, but an investigation was launched, nonetheless. Almost immediately, HUD advised Allied that they could not touch me or my ferrets and could not charge a deposit for the ferrets, acts of retaliation, but Allied was deaf.

 

Allied’s manipulation and torment escalated, despite my attorney’s actions (lawyer with Northwest Senior Justice Project, Olympia): more threatening letters, inspections and unannounced visits. One such visit came at 3:00 pm on a Friday by yet another Allied employee I’d not met before, and it lasted until 9:15 that night: didn’t even get to eat dinner. Then, Allied came up with a new tactic, actually due to their own screw-up: they claimed to have erred in calculating deposit and rents— another excuse to contact me both by phone and visits— therefore owing me nearly $300 in overcharges. They refused to refund and falsely charged me with refusing to sign recertification papers, another lie added to many lies they feeding HUD, which will come out in our next segment.

 

The stress was mind-boggling and my health was deteriorating rapidly while my blood pressure was soaring off the charts: not because I was worried or afraid, but simply because Allied never let up and I was becoming quite angry. Yeah, I know, “Get angry but sin not.” I obeyed. Still, my doctor and neurosurgeon were going through the roof, finally telling my attorney to instruct Allied not to contact with me in any way or be subject to a charge of reckless endangerment, or worse, negligent homicide if I died: the risk of another brain aneurysm at an all time high. Allied ignored the directive: just a few days later I received yet another threatening letter.

 

About a month after I had moved in, management placed a woman above me who was not “62 or older,” as required by the HUD “elderly only” contract with FTP owners. She is a raging alcoholic and within two months she had moved in her grown sons (21 & 23), in violation of both HUD and DSHS welfare requirements: she reported to neither entity as required. Not to worry: I shall not report it, as Jesus would not approve. But, take a wild guess as to who does get reported to DSHS for fraud. That’s our next segment, too.

 

As a psychotherapist, I was not surprised when Rachel and her sons began tormenting me 24/7; after all, they knew I could be, the operative words being “could be,” their greatest threat as the nearest neighbor to be affected by their behaviour: constant, deliberate stomping on the floor, going to management filing false complaints against me, and so forth. Their mentality is to “do unto others before they do unto you.” Typical behaviour of addicts, liars and manipulators: unfortunately, Rachel and her sons are all of these.

 

Needless to say, I wasn’t sleeping and management did nothing. Albeit, for many months I did not complain, but neighbors had— loud and clear and even in writing but to no avail: they also called the police several times, once having her carted off to detox for three weeks, as well as filed complaints directly with Allied and FTP’s California owners. Alas, Rachel was convinced I was the one who did all the complaining and Allied was happy to let her believe it; despite the fact I had asked management to tell her I was not the one— hoping truth would put a stop to her harassment and torment.

 

The abuse continued to escalate, most of it witnessed by surrounding tenants. In March 2008, Rachel came to my door one evening, drunk as usual and ranting. So, I shut the door. The next day, Management attempted to serve me with a “stop harassing” notice on Rachel’s behalf: she had run to the manager, crying crocodile tears, that next morning and claimed I was constantly coming to her door harassing her. I informed management of what really happened and two of my neighbors confirmed. Management tore up the notice she was about to serve on me but did not remove the one in my file, which she had agreed to remove. Alas, my pristine file is now filled with false charges and complaints.

 

April 2008 arrived in a painful storm amidst Allied’s continued torment: the third afternoon Rachel slammed into my storm door, yanked it open to pound on the door, and began raging when I opened the inner door to find her right in my face as she held open the storm door. Fortunately, my next-door neighbor saw everything and immediately called police. Before they arrived, three times I instructed Rachel to step away from my door and attempted to shut it. Instead, the third time I spoke, Rachel assaulted me by shoving my door into my face: an act that easily could have killed me.

 

Still, I chose to do as Christ and did not file charges against her; hoping instead, as did my neighbors, that management finally evict Rachel: she is a danger to all and Allied certainly had enough in her file to make it quite easy, in addition to her having broken every rule of both house and HUD— case in point, Rachel brought in a huge dog without permission or deposit, which size is prohibited; a neighbor filed a complaint with Allied, but it was in my car that one of Rachel’s sons put a bag of her cat’s feces as retaliation. Assumption gets people in trouble: I called the police, car dusted for prints although, again, I did not pursue charges but did tell management of the event.

 

Allied fired the above site manager, then refused to let a new temp-manager evict Rachel: she was serving their purposes quite well, in view of HUD being on their case. No doubt they hoped I would move due to Rachel, then HUD would drop my case  automatically. When one lives in subsidized housing, it is not easy or even quick to move: virtually all such properties have as little as a two-year and up to a 3-year waiting list. Unfortunately, the Section 8 waiting list, which allows a person to live anywhere, even a house, is not taking applications for the next 4 to 5 years.

 

By the time HUD had called in its State Investigator on the discrimination issue and the California owners had been notified of Allied’s many violations, it looked as though my life might settle down soon. Naturally, Satan was not and is not finished; for despite everything having been witnessed, it was going to be the Fed’s turn to take as many bites out of me as possible. But, while they were chewing and chomping, FTP owners fired Allied effective 01 August 2008, and a new management company came in with a new site manager: looked as though they might be worth their salt—one of the first people he wanted out was Rachel and her boys. Of course, we all know that looks can be deceiving.

 

According to HUD, it usually takes up to a year before a case is assigned to an Investigator, most States having more than one; however, the “entity that shall remain nameless,” as my attorney stated to Allied, had gone straight to the head of HUD with my case and “the head” told this State’s only Investigator to get right on it. This is where our story will take up in the next segment of Federal and State abuse of seniors and elderly, which will include the details of a recent DSHS action noted below. It won’t be difficult to figure out who or what caused DSHS to join HUD for dinner at my expense.

 

Yeah, Rachel and her non-working, non-disabled sons remain and still are tormenting me. Worse is the fact that she is one of those who defrauds our government systems and gets by with it: the result of it being that much more difficult for an honest and deserving person to get help from the various State and Federal programs.

 

Case in point: when I applied for Social Security (SS) at age 55, to which I had paid into for thirty-seven years (having worked 33 years longer than my doctors advised), I was denied twice and had to go to court. My SS facilitator told me right up front that if he could show me as a depressed addict of drugs or alcohol or both, approval would be almost immediate; but, the honest person who most needs it gets taken through a wringer then has to jump through hoops of fire that usually consumes two years.

 

By age 57, I was a heap of ash, for he knew what he was talking about, when two years later I was in an SS court: the judge was irate over how I had been treated coupled with the fact their own doctors had stated unequivocally that I could not work both times I’d been denied, then the judge ruled hands down in my favor— thanks be to the Lord!

 

Alas, the new FTP manager now whines that Allied should have removed Rachel long ago instead of leaving it for him to do. To demonstrate his feelings about that, I was informed two weeks ago that if I complained a third time, I would be evicted along with Rachel: not that he has made any attempt to evict her. This is just one of the fear tactics so many site managers use instead of doing their jobs in accordance with law and HUD and in the best interest of their tenants’ safety.

 

Rachel is a danger to everyone around her: cigarette burns all over her mattress, smoked up our apartments burning things on or in the stove, and killed one of my ferrets by gassing my apartment with extremely toxic fumes: my other ferret became ill but recovered and my blood pressure spiked dangerously for the twenty minutes I was exposed. I had been gone and, apparently, my unit had been gassed for several hours: she was attempting to burn-off plastic that she had melted to a burner coil on her stove by leaving the burner on. My ferrets and I had to vacate the unit for the evening and leave the apartment open in very cold weather.

 

Rachel also flooded my apartment when her commode overflowed and she walked away doing nothing about moping up until it was too late. Where else could that water go? What does management need to remove this danger that, ultimately, can cost the owners their complex by fire? Anyway, Allied has been gone since August 2008, but they were not finished tormenting me and would do so through DSHS.

 

As I’ve said before, this is not all about me. In fact, there were four other cases just here at FTP that went to HUD, one was automatically dropped when the tenant’s daughter moved her to another town and subsidized unit. That is the way of HUD: if you move, they simply drop the case and declare it resolved.

 

That case above, though, was another horror story: an 86-year old dwarf, Petie Balls, who had lived here at FTP for almost 20 years, started and ran a craft club and maintained her supplies in the Community Room under lock and key, as long ago approved by prior management. New management charged her with theft, took everything that actually had been purchased by and belonged to Petie, and served her with eviction. Her daughter didn’t know what else to do, except get Petie out of here, because HUD was dragging their feet, not even holding a temporary stop sign in front of Allied.

 

It took months to achieve the move, so Petie was harassed and had the police called on her both times she attempted to speak with management. Unfortunately, one month after Petie moved to another town, Allied Group took over as the management company of Petie’s new location. Her daughter is watching them and their site manager like a hawk ready to swoop in if they harass her. Horror stores abound throughout this demographic.

 

The other three cases, also threatened with eviction, ended up ignored by HUD, likely because they were not considered as serious and/or did not involve discrimination or at least the appearance of discrimination: we will get into that in our next segment about HUD’s actions in all this.

 

Remember: the senior and elderly population is the largest demographic in this nation! Do we realize that, as such, we have the collective power to even determine votes? We can do something about these undeserved injustices but it will take all of us being loud and clear about what we no longer will tolerate at our Federal and State levels by the very people we put into office and the organizations that are supposed to protect us.

 

According to HUD, we have the right to say how our subsidized apartments are run, a right we have not utilized in most settings because management will not allow a Tenants’ Association; which HUD recommends we have. Management puts enough fear into the majority of tenants so they will not join an Association, even if one is started: such as here at FTP. And, we have the right to organize clubs of whatsoever nature, as long as legal, without interference from management. As seen here at FTP, management disbanded all clubs and took over our newsletter. Now the only thing that gets printed is what management wants us to read, truth or not.

 

Of course, greed is the driving force of these end days: sort of the wickeds’ last hurrah before their demise. In these cases, however, the greed is that of only property management companies, whereas the Federal and State departments want to simply ignore their responsibilities to those whom they subsidize in whatsoever ways: management companies can be fired and it doesn’t pay HUD or DSHS to shirk their obligations. Our tax dollars pay them to fulfill their duties in accordance with the law!

 

No sleep. . . oh, well, I do believe Jesus told us that we are children of the Light and we are to keep watch at night when the wicked sleep: so sleep not. I keep hanging on to that, knowing that it could be any day/any hour now for His return, and I believe I can keep going as long as Father intends. I’m the Energizer bunny? I think new batteries might help. Again, please pass this story on to everyone you believe might be able to help us or to persons experiencing similar injustices.

Cinderella Syndrome

Cinderella Syndrome

©copyright 2007 Bonita M Quesinberry, R.C.

Cinderella Syndrome? Is this clinical terminology? It is and counselors use it as a diagnostic term to describe angry, out of control children who live with one parent and a stepparent or even abusive parents; kids who automatically assume that all stepparents and abusive parents are evil thus act out their confusion, sense of abandonment and rage. Several years ago, this issue was covered in a lesson about parenting; however, this syndrome also impacts marriages much more than people realize.

“The French Cendrillon,” penned by Charles Perrault in the 1690s, is believed to be the original “Cinderella;” of this latter, similar tales of wicked stepmothers and prince charming saving an abused princess are found in nearly all cultures. However, the originals were not written as children’s fairytales; they were novel length works intended for adults, which explains negatives in “Cinderella” that destructively impact children.

Tales such as “Cinderella” and “Sleeping Beauty” create unrealistic, and often unfair, expectations of stepparents or abusive parents and future marriage partners. Many, but not all, children who grew up on these classic fairytales automatically assume stepparents are wicked and immediately will set out to derail that vile person who dared to disrupt their life: girls dreamed of being swept away by a strong Prince Charming, who saves their lives, loves them unconditionally, and gives them everything they want; and, our boys expect to become mesmerized by a beautiful, sweet, loving Princess, to whom they willingly would give the world on a silver platter. Both believe they will be saved from a wicked stepparent, or abusive parents, then go on to live happily ever after. In their world of make believe, life is sweet smelling roses void of thorns.

It’s irrelevant to have taught that these are just fairytales, not real life; especially if parental role models are less than examples of a godly union. A child is impacted at such a young age that he or she does not understand the explanation; and, if it be they also have a stepparent or later gain one or have an abusive parent, fairytales become all that much more of a realistic hope to him or her: an abusive stepparent or poor parental example transfers to a prince or princess with marriage being this child’s escape to perfect love, one that usually will fail miserably. When reality does not match the fairytale outcome, divorce courts open their doors and slam down a gavel with ominous finality on what only seems to have changed from wicked stepparents or vile parents to evil spouses.

Today, there are a number of excuses given courts of law to justify the abominable action of divorce: infidelity, abuse, abandonment, misrepresentation, going in different directions, no longer on the same emotional level, no longer “in love;” though the most popular excuse cited in legal petitions is irreconcilable differences: sounds better and neither party suffers public blame.

The point of divorcing: “I made a mistake. He isn’t my prince charming” or “she isn’t my beautiful princess;” albeit, the more popular phrase is, he or she “isn’t my soul mate.” And, they just KNOW that their soul mate is still out there somewhere patiently waiting for them; thus, adulterous remarriage becomes the solution.

Notice the word “excuses” above; for God considers not one of those excuses to be a valid reason for divorce. Although, He does allow a man to divorce, IF and only if his wife has committed adultery, but He does not allow a woman to divorce her husband for any reason. Jesus taught forgiveness; so even in cases of adultery, divorce is not God’s solution for troubled marriages.

It is sad that people are astounded when a couple reports having been married 40 or 50 years or, as the Quesinberry grandparents, married for 72 years when grandfather died at age 96. People instantly ask, “What’s your secret to staying married so long?” The Quesinberry’s would have said that, despite grandfather’s early infidelity and even abuse, God’s plan for marriage was the reason for longevity.

This Cinderella Syndrome defines marriage as it being all about “me, myself, and I:” what marriage can do for “me,” what the spouse can do for “me,” about how much the spouse loves “me.” To enter a marriage with such self-serving expectations is a sure ticket to divorce courts. On the other hand, God directs us to look outside self; therefore, marriage is supposed to be about loving the spouse and doing all we can for our spouse. It should not be about what the spouse can do for self.

Marriage also is about reflecting a oneness that mirrors our oneness with God; thus, marriage is all about pleasing God by our obedience to His earthly marriage rules. After all, marriage applies in this lifetime only; for in the eternal life there will be no one given in marriage. Our total focus then, as genderless spirit beings, will be our awesome Father and His Christ, our Lord and Saviour who is our future husband.

We, as parents, need to be aware of how fairytales might impact our children’s future behaviour; therefore, we need to be very cognizant of any negatives such stories might be forming in our kids’ minds. If negatives are there, then don’t allow those fairytales for young, impressionable children. Let them read them as adults who, hopefully, have been thoroughly taught God’s way by the time they read those fables.

And, of course, we need to be setting the very best possible examples for our children to follow. God’s Word provides everything we need to be great husbands and wives from the get go, to assure marital longevity void of becoming a national statistic. Being godly husbands and wives results in becoming the best parents. God’s Word tells each spouse what He expects of him and her, explains their respective duties designed for each— providing no room for focusing on whether or not the other spouse is doing what he or she should be doing— and God explains how to parent the children He loans to us.

The single biggest mistake couples make is to believe they must please their spouse or lose him or her. We never can fully please another human, not as long as we are in these finite bodies and Satan roams around looking for victims to devour with lies. But without any doubt, we can please God: we’ve only to follow His rules for husbands and wives, which directs us to focus on being the best self can be without any regard for what the other spouse is doing or not doing.

As with all things concerning our heavenly Father, we are judged solely on self-behaviour; so, in reality, it does not matter what our husband or wife is doing right or wrong. In fact, if we are committed and work at being a godly person, spouse and parent, odds are in our favor that, eventually, the noncompliant spouse will change his or her behaviour simply by what they see in us. The Word charges, “Who are you to say your mate will never change?” Refer to “Discipline Self.”

Wives and mothers, are you teaching your daughters how to be godly women and showing your sons how to recognize a godly woman so that, when it is time, he will make a wise choice in his choice of mate; your children seeing it in your behaviour and reinforced by your teaching of God’s Word on the topic? Husbands and fathers, are you raising your sons to be godly men and showing your daughters how to recognize a godly man so they will make a wise choice in husbands; showing them by your behaviour and instructing them according to God’s Word on the subject?

Every answer we need to this temporary life’s many issues is found only in God’s Word. So, don’t make the mistake of looking for happiness to come from another human, where it never will be found. God told us where to find happiness, “Happy is the person who obeys God’s Law.” At best, other people can only enhance our happiness, though we cannot always count on them to do so; but they never can take happiness away from us when God is the One to have given it.

Looking Back ~~ as Jesus Defines

Looking Back

©copyright 2007 Bonita M Quesinberry, R.C.

A few years ago, TSaS presented a Biblical teaching about looking back over our lives to review the many sins we have committed against our Lord; a lesson promoting humility in His presence as opposed to living in the past; this latter being a deadly place to be in. This tutorial, however, brings forth a different form of looking back based on Christ’s words in Luke 9:62—

Jesus said, “Any person, who has put his or her hand to the plow, then looks back [to the cares of this world], is not fit for the kingdom of God.”

By appropriate definition, to plow is an act of labor spiritually associated with finding lost sheep and, ultimately, the harvest of those sheep when Christ returns in the clouds; which explanation is noted in Luke 10:2. In Luke 9:62 above, however, Christ had just invited a man to follow Him; but the man replied conditionally, “First, let me go and bury my father.” Jesus then instructed, “Let the dead bury their dead.” (Luke 9:59-60)

This looking back to the cares of the world also reflects the teachings in Christ’s Parable of the Sower in Matthew 13:3-9,18-23,37-42; specifically the seeds that fell among thorns, weeds as it were, growing in the world along side God’s wheat: the weeds representing the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches, of which both choke out the Truth from those people who endured in Christ for only a little while. But, when it became inconvenient to live God’s Truth, they turned back to the worlds little gods.

Proverbs 21:4 reveals one of the purposes of this spiritual plowing in the midst of humanity: “An arrogant expression and a proud heart, and the plowing of the wicked, is sin.” In short, the wicked plow the world only for its riches, all of the conveniences of “man’s wicked inventions” and the power of money; while I Corinthians 9:10 indicates that we, who labor for Christ, plow with an attitude of hope to separate weeds from the wheat; so we will be partakers of Christ’s hope. As we labour for God and Christ, we are simultaneously discerning the weeds— wolves in sheep’s clothing— from the wheat, those lost sheep we seek to reach during the time allotted for our work.

Going back to Luke 9:62, Christ stated who is not “fit” for God’s kingdom. By definition and in the spiritual sense, “fit” means to have the qualities and qualifications to meet the demands of following Jesus; therefore, if we look back to the cares of the world, as did the man in Luke 9:59, then we are considered unfit to follow Christ: being found unfit results in a sentence of twice dead; which brings us to His statement in Luke 9:60 about letting the “dead bury their dead.”

Anyone who refuses to instantly follow Jesus is considered already dead though still living; therefore, those who are spiritually dead should bury those who are physically dead: for Christ’s work is far too important to take the time away from our task to bury someone who has died only of a flesh body, whether or not the deceased died in Christ; for the body is merely a garment. His work, and ours if we choose to follow Jesus, is a labour to save people from the permanent death of the body’s spirit being within. What more rewarding task can there be than to be instrumental in saving someone from God’s pit of fire and brimstone? Saving just one is to be called great in heaven, another sign of this vital mission’s importance.

The story of Lot’s wife, as told in Genesis c.19, reveals death as the final reward for looking back after having been told not to look back: she turned back to the cares of Sodom and Gomorrah and the life she had left there. Instantly, she was turned into a pillar of salt; which, by the way, very quickly replenishes earth’s soil. She died for disobeying God’s command. Most important, however, is that she died for having more concern for Sodom and Gomorrah than for God wishes. The angels warned that looking back would cause their demise; thus, Lot’s wife had been given fair warning.

This enhances the fact that the cares of this world are temporary; and, anything spiritually deemed temporary is not worth our time and emotion or energy. Matthew 10:37-38 and Luke 16:13 confirm this premise; therein Jesus clearly stating that we cannot cling to the world and simultaneously serve God. In other words, we can do only one or the other: there is no acceptable form of riding the fence, of having one foot in Christ’s field and another in the world’s field. Hence, a new world to come should be our only focus; which means we care more about following Christ and, by the Truth we speak, labouring with God’s Word to save His lost sheep from a fiery pit: ignited by Christ’s quick return.  

Luke 20:35-36 clearly states that those found fit to carry on Christ’s work will inherit a new earth, where they will be considered equal to heaven’s angels and will never die again; for they will have new bodies that cannot be defiled. Another sign of being deemed fit, cited in II Thessalonians 1:4-5, is noted by the persecutions and troubles we endure for Christ’s sake, as well as our work by faith with power. Revelation 3:4 reassures those found fit that they are worthy of the kingdom; thus, dressed in garments of white, they are promised they will walk with Christ.

I Timothy 5:18 declares labourers for Jesus as worthy of His reward. What did God promise Christ? Having agreed to die for man’s past sins, God promised Messiah that He would rule a restored earth; a place where no evil, no illnesses and diseases, no death and no pain will exist. Therefore, this also will be our reward for following Christ. Likewise, those who refuse to follow Jesus are found worthy of death, noted in Revelation 16:6.

There are so many ways in which we might be clinging to the world, looking back as it were, and not even realize we are looking back instead of pushing Christ’s plow forward and through His wheat field. How many ways of looking back do you find in your life? Let us view a few possibilities not noted in the above text:

1. A person professes Christ yet continues to look back upon a childhood fraught with abuse, using that same abuse to justify his or her own unacceptable behaviour. To look back is to remain a victim of abuse, therefore consistently rendered incapable of looking forward in order to plow Christ’s wheat field. Those who continually look back to injustices done to them are, in effect, looking to the world to correct those wrongs instead of, in faith, knowing that God will avenge us at the appropriate time. Faith is to let go of the past and to move forward in God’s Word, so that we will be avenged!

2. One might complain about our nation’s government or the wars in which it might be engaged or global warming caused by man’s indifference to the care of this planet. This is to look away from Christ’s plow. Faith knows that nothing transpires in any government and no wars begin or end without God’s absolute control and for His greater purpose. This is to focus on the ills of the world instead of labouring with God’s Truth to save Christ’s lost sheep. We cannot cure the world’s ills; only God can and, ultimately, will do that. The only thing we can do is, hopefully, save a few from God’s fire of destruction.

3. Some might spend an inordinate amount of time grieving over the death of a loved one, which is to cling to the world, to a person; their behaviour reflecting a greater love for the person than for Jesus. Faith knows that our loved ones did not die; they merely sleep until Christ calls out their names when He comes in the clouds. Faith misses the deceased but continues to push Christ’s plow.

4. A person hears God’s Truth from one pushing Christ’s plow and, perhaps, he or she even acknowledges the soundness of those teachings; but, he or she continues to abide in  “man’s commandments and traditions” while excusing his or her lack of obedience. This is a person clinging to the world instead of embracing God and only God. He or she looked back to the convenience of the world, the comfort of their denominational choice, instead of grasping Christ’s plow to speak those same Truths to every ear that will hear. He or she is deemed unworthy, unfit. It is up to each individual, without exception, to search out God’s Word; and, while there are some laborers who have put God’s Truth out there in the form of books or on the Internet or both, the choice to obey is personal and cannot be made by the plowman. We make choices for only self. As Jesus said, “Pray for more labourers.”

5. To choose money instead of Christ’s plow is to cling to the world. For instance, a mission God has for a person requires that he or she give up a very lucrative job as well as his or her home and other worldly things. Those who accept the plow give up these things readily, knowing their basic needs will be met through God; yet, the unworthy will look back to those things as evidence of his or her success in the world: reminiscent of the rich man in Matthew 19:16-24, whom Jesus acknowledged had obeyed God’s law, but he walked away from Christ when He then told him he had yet one thing still to do: sell all that he had and give it to the poor and follow Christ. This was a man who lacked the qualities and qualifications to meet the demands of following Christ, thus unfit for God’s kingdom. 

As Lot’s wife turned into a pillar of salt, so in essence do all those who refuse to take Christ’s plow into their hands; thereby forsaking the permanent world to come in favor of this defiled earth’s temporary glitter. As noted in Sabbath Lesson of 27 January 2007, “A World Without End,” all these will lie dead from one end of earth to the other end; neither mourned nor buried, thus ultimately replenishing earth of what was taken from her to create then sustain them. These are those who, when they heard God’s Truth and were invited to take Christ’s plow, were salted with God’s Truth. But, in refusing to fully work His plow, they lost their flavour, their ability to season others with Truth. So in the end, they will be returned to earth and will never exist again.

Matthew 5:13 refers to the labourers, those who take Christ’s plow, as being the “salt of the earth” and those who refuse the plow are described as having “lost their flavor and henceforth are good for nothing, except to be walked upon by the feet of men.” This latter statement refers to God’s declaration that, in the new earth, His people will walk upon the ashes of the wicked.

Christ continues in Matthew 5:17-19, wherein He defines the salt as God’s light of Truth, which is God’s Law, according to the Psalm. Those who readily take up Christ’s plow do as Christ did: they both live and teach ALL of God’s Law, this latter also causing them to be called great in heaven while at the same time persecution and tribulations come upon them as a sign of their kingdom worthiness; noted above in a previous paragraph and further clarified in Mark 9:49-50 and Luke 14:33-35.

Colossians 4:6 directs Christ’s plowmen to always speak with grace seasoned with salt; which is to speak of God’s grace in offering salvation, though mankind is unworthy, accompanied with God’s Truth. In doing so, we are assured that we always will know how to answer every question mankind might have; this is not to say that mankind will necessarily believe the answers. It only seems difficult to speak God’s Truth when we are not living His Truth, which is to turn from the plow back to the world. It is difficult to speak God’s Truth only when we care more about what others think of us than we do about what God thinks of us, which is again to look back from the plow.

Has your salt lost flavour? Will you metaphorically become Lot’s wife when Christ returns? Have you failed to fully embrace Christ’s plow, thereby never looking back? Has the world’s little gods become your little gods?

If your answer is yes to any one or each of those questions, you can choose to repent, change your position, and enhance your flavour. You can choose to refuse to look back, to become fully seasoned, consistently pushing Christ’s plow forward as we prepare for Christ’s return for the harvest of His small flocks. Time is short, very short.
