Prophecy’s Extra Oil 58: Hidden in Plain Sight
©copyright 2010 Bonita M Quesinberry

News:
Mother/Daughters: Jack Van Impe is making it a point, every week, to belie TSaS Truth and accuracy in the Bible. Last night he blasted those who teach that Christ’s 1000 years reign will be in heaven. “Earth is forever!” he shouted. We agree that this planet is forever; however, prophecy states that it will have its 1000 years Sabbath rest, during which time it shall lie fallow, which is to say it will do no work thus is unable to support life of any kind. THIS is the reason Christ takes us up into the clouds, “escorts us to the safe haven of heaven” for that 1000 years. Van Impe would like to believe the wicked will get one more chance, including himself.

US Sunday Newspapers’ insert, Parade, quoted gay singer Elton John, “I think Jesus was a compassionate, super-intelligent GAY man who understood human problems.” Housing values down 30% since 2008, just fell another 2.5%; Job Losses, sudden surge in unemployment claims; Banks, Jan 2010 revealed 100 banks still at failure risk + 20 failed, Feb risk # tops 700. FED claims economy improving: NOT. Toyota recall fix did not fix accelerator or brakes, might be computer glitch;

[BonnieQ: Speaking of computerized cars, I drive a 1977 Pontiac with 150K actual miles on it; despite a V-8 engine, it gets 21-mpg and puts out less emissions than newer cars. It does not require a computer to tell it to shift gears or stop the car or motivate any other mechanical and electric components. Over 10 years ago, daughter Maria bought an almost new Dodge Van; a month later the transmission failed: prior to her purchase, the battery had been changed out without resetting the computer; dealer claimed they did not do it. New transmission: $2500 from Maria’s pocket. To replace one in my Pontiac, my mechanic at the time said: $800. It seems OLD is better and smarter! And definitely cheaper to repair due to age or high use wear and tear. What about your car?]

TSaS Request: At the end of this Extra Oil is information and facts about Truth Seekers and Speakers that many people may not know about us. Therefore, we ask that all of our members share this Oil with everyone in the world by forwarding it as “in-line text.” We feel this Oil and Extra Oil 57 include parables that might make sense to many who have found no reason to “come out of” Sunday’s religions. PLEASE SHARE!

02/20/10: Sister Tammy, of Florida, called last Sabbath day to share her thoughts about Extra Oil 57’s analogy about art and God’s Word. “It made me think of the artist Bev Doolittle, who paints wonderful woodland scenes with things hidden in them; eagles, bears, wolves, Indians and the like: hidden so well that the first look at a specific canvas, you see stands of white birch trees, fronted by a field of snow, an Indian Chief dashing across the field on a Pinto horse, his full headdress fluttering behind him in the breeze.

“The title of that particular painting is a clue to something hidden in the scene. You stand back peering closely to find a great eagle. Doolittle often hides a lot in a forest of white birch trees, so that’s the first place one looks on that particular canvas. At last, someone either points out what is hidden or you see that the eagle is part of the Chief’s feathers, horse, trees and snow. Hint: look closer at details and subtle use of color.

“The Extra Oil analogy directed us to see the difference between an abstract that renders a different perception for each viewer versus a real-life 3-dimensional scene giving the same perception to every viewer. It made me think of Bev Doolittle’s art in relation to God’s “mysteries and secrets” cleverly woven throughout the Bible in plain sight yet not found by those who teach in abstract: reading the Bible as one would read any book, sequential page order, OR to depend on one or two verses for understanding.

“We can read a book straight through, but it is not the best way to study it; especially the Bible. God’s method is to study by topic and requires the Holy Spirit to enable us to find every relevant verse in the Bible from beginning to end in order to gain only God’s wisdom about an issue and His specific requirements for us within the subject. This also applies to discovering His mysteries and secrets woven of fine lines of paint subtly placed throughout God’s singular Truth painting: kind of like a gold thread randomly woven into an otherwise single dimension fabric. God’s Word is multi-dimensional.

“Most people think the Bible only hints at God’s mysteries and secrets: all are written in plain sight but only to those who love God and Christ by obeying and seek the Holy Spirit as his or her guide and teacher. We can rely on God’s teachers and His prophets for interpretation, per God’s Word, but only those who are proven by His Word as speaking only His Truth. Earth’s time is so short now that I feel this is the best way to go because there isn’t enough time to go it alone. My feeling on having a ‘proven’ human teacher, or prophet as needed, is that while learning does go much faster, we still are being taught by the Holy Spirit because they were and still are being Spirit led.”

~~End of sister Tammy’s comments

BonnieQ: I feel Tammy is right on target and also feel that the Extra Oil 57 analogy could have been expressed even better. I described for Tammy an abstract painting I once owned: it was simple slashes of several pastel colors matching the same splashes in my contemporary tuxedo sofa: another color was black but used minimally. The painting had several wavy black lines; two or three not connected but near one another.

Everyone who looked at it never saw anything except random color that matched the couch; despite the artist’s intent to hint at a Seagull. His intent was not even a matter of ‘hiding’ the bird; still, I had that painting for several years before I finally saw a Seagull, yet I knew it was the painting’s title. I finally perceived it because ‘I’ was looking for it. If the artist had not titled his painting, it is not likely I ever would have seen more than abstract lines and color: contemporary, without rhyme or reason except it worked with my Art Deco style and design colors.

I also suggested to Tammy a landscape painting of, perhaps, San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge. All people would walk away from it with the same perception of having seen the Golden Gate Bridge and its surrounding terrain; as opposed to either a confusing use of color or a different meaning to each person. These three artistic analogies, parables if you will, describe perfectly and respectively Corporate Christendom’s lies, God’s unblemished Truth and God’s secrets and mysteries. No matter how clear a painting, however, the blind will never see its beauty muchless understand it: so it is with God’s Word.

God’s Word in ONE: “One God, One Son, One Truth, One Law, One Way.” Christ would have mankind to understand that God’s Law, which is His Father’s Doctrine, was not nailed to the cross: Daniel made that clear. God’s Doctrine is the Twelve Statutes, which are not of Moses’ ordinances: the ordinances of sacrifice were the only laws symbolically nailed to the cross as Christ’s body being the sacrificial lamb. An animal sacrifice was not good and was an annual atonement always intended to be temporary: “shadow of things to come.” Christ as the sacrificial lamb is permanent and daily.

Paraphrased for clarity, in Psalm 51:13-15, Jesus said, “I will teach transgressors [God’s] ways; and sinners shall be converted unto [God]. And, my tongue shall sing aloud of your righteousness and show forth your praise.” This is the same vow that Truth Speakers have made to God and Christ; for we are the “babes who perfect praise and Truth” of whom Jesus spoke after warning to beware of pastors, preachers and theologians.

Then in Psalm 52:1-7, He refers to they who lie about God’s Word; those leaders in the sanctuaries of the Great Whore and her harlot daughters. “Your tongue plans destruction, like a sharp razor working deceitfully. You love evil more than good and speaking lies instead of teaching righteousness [Law of Righteousness]. You love words that devour [smooth words]. God shall likewise destroy you forever; He shall take you away and pluck you out of your dwelling place and root you out of the land of the living. The righteous shall see this and respect God, but will laugh at you, saying, ‘Lo, these are the ones that did not make God their strength, who trusted in the abundance of their riches and strengthened themselves by their own wickedness.'”

Psalm 54:22-23 consoles and assures us in Christ’s words, “Cast your burdens upon the Lord, and He shall sustain you; He shall never allow the righteous to be shaken from His Truth. For God shall bring down [the wicked] into the pit of destruction; for bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half their days. Trust in God.”

“Bloody and deceitful men.” These are they who speak smooth words; those things the people want to hear instead of what they need to hear. The use of ‘deceitful’ is obvious, but Jesus also referred to them as ‘bloody,’ which relates directly to God’s statement “Satan slays his own.” Their smooth words subtly pave the way to utter destruction to nevermore be remembered. Subtle because all who follow smooth words will not realize the road they travel leads to obliteration— until it is too late to turn around.

Now that it is too late, they are angry, fighting mad and blame God’s Doctrine Keepers— “Why didn’t they tell us? They say it is too late, so why are they telling us now?” We are not really telling them now, and they really are not angry with us: as Jesus said, “They hate me.” Nevertheless, Truth Speakers have been telling the world for the last 166 years: it was not too late during the first 147 years. Yes, we still are speaking God’s Truth but in the last 19 years it has been directed solely to Laodicea’s lukewarm and cold: those who, respectively, know the Truth but are lax in it and to those who are seeking God’s Truth because they truly love God and Christ despite Sunday affiliations.

We do not know who is lukewarm or cold, thus we must speak to everyone encountered, especially to all who remain in Sunday synagogues. If you stand in one of Sunday’s world religions, pray that you are lukewarm or cold, then instantly turn around before Jesus and His angels enter earth’s door to harvest His wheat fields. Do it now, for all left behind are weeds and will be burned as fire precedes our Saviour’s flight across earth’s skies while taking us up to Him. It will be too late when He enters the door this year or the next.

The prayer of Truth Speakers today is the same as Christ’s in Psalm c. 54-55,59: “Save us, Lord, by your name and judge us by your righteousness. Hear our prayer, Lord, and our words; for the wicked, those who do not have God before them, are rapidly rising up against us and oppressors seek our souls with lies. We know God shall pay our enemies with evil, cutting them off by His Truth. We freely sacrifice our flesh to you, Lord, and praise your name, for it is good. Our heavenly Father delivers us out of all trouble and today our eyes are witnessing His judgment on our enemies.

“Deliver us from our enemies, O my God; defend us from them that rise up against us. Deliver us from the workers o iniquity, and save us from bloody men. They lie in wait for our souls: the mighty are gathered against us; not for our transgressions nor for our sins past, O Lord. They run and prepare themselves, though we are not at fault. Awake, Father, to help us and see what they do. Therefore, O Lord God of hosts, the God of Israel, awake to visit all the heathen: be not merciful to any wicked transgressors. Please hear our prayer, dear Father, and turn not from our plea. Hear us and help us, in Jesus name we ask these things. Amen and amen.”

As it was with Jesus, some of our enemies are friends and some family. We have to remind ourselves of Christ’s warning, “Thine enemies are of thine own household.” They will cause the murder of a few of us, but our Saviour will come before they can slay many; OR, many of us will be spared the worst terrors by an unrelated death before Christ arrives. Praise the Lord, either way we know it will be no death at all; just the best night’s sleep we will have ever had: before Christ calls our name the next morning. Praise the Lord, we know Jesus will raise us up just as His Father raised up Him from the grave.

“Friends and family”— this world is not as it seems and neither are many of the people in each of our lives; for all this is one vast illusion. We are spirit beings neither seen nor detected, save by our obedience to God, hidden as it were within the folds of a painfully restricting flesh garment. Man might destroy our garment but he cannot kill us. We are not of this world. We are the church “not built by man;” we are God’s “congregation.”

Do not discern by what you see with your own eyes but by what the heart and God’s Spirit reveal; hold to, or depart from, those you know as need be to avoid as enemies. If it be so that you have the mind and heart of Jesus, then you know the identity of our foes; whether they are in the midst of your family or friends or outside your circle or you still stand in Sunday’s square. “Come out of her, my people!”

BELIEVE, LOVE, OBEY GOD AND CHRIST !

About Truth Speakers and Speakers: (TSaS)

If you know nothing about TSaS or our teachings, visit our Seventh Seal Library as well as TSaS. If you received this Extra Oil from one of our TSaS members and would like to receive every Biblical treatise broadcast as well as have access to all previous Bible lessons, then join TSaS. We provide only and ALL of God’s Word in response to any issue requiring God’s Opinion instead of man’s.

TSaS formed in June 2002. In March 2009, Holy Spirit redirected our focus to providing extra oil needed for our lanterns while we await the Groom’s arrival: time is now of the essence. TSaS sister Debby referred to Senior Speaker, BonnieQ, as “Speaker of the House, the only one, it seems, who is speaking all of God’s Truth in the United States.”

BonnieQ has no degree in theology or prophecy and feels blessed that she was not educated in man’s seminaries. She does, however, have 35 or more years of continuing education by the Holy Spirit with specific emphasis on the “weightier matters” of both God’s whole Word and His Doctrine, together with prophecy interpretation and teaching all she has been given. By Christ’s definition, she is a “babe perfecting praise and Truth.”

TSaS is not affiliated with any of the vast array of organized, incorporated Saturday or Sunday keeping denominations; believes only in the Bible, obeys only God’s Doctrine, which includes obedience to His Seventh Day Sabbath— in the manner God prescribed, not as man dictates— as well as diligently following in Christ’s peaceful footsteps as the manner of His church built by no man: we are the people of God’s congregation.

Jesus described His church: all things equal, therefore our tithes and all excess incomes are used to help other believers in less fortunate positions due to no fault of their own. If his or her trouble is self-inflicted, we will counsel on how to overcome as well as assist only as appropriate and in a manner that does not enable further foolish behaviour.

We are self-funded thus ask nothing of our members, except prayer and to share all TSaS Bible Lessons with everyone each member knows. If we have a member in financial trouble, we will put out the word to our congregation and pray each will add to the assistance TSaS renders.

The most notable thing about minister Saul-called-Paul was that the seven churches did not financially support him: he worked wherever he went but was housed by his brethren at each location. The one time he did accept money from one of the churches, it was to help another church in need.

TSaS operates and aids others on a “65% below poverty level” social security income with no other resources available: certainly God’s congregation can do the same. No matter what the income, 10% belongs to God. In the ancient church, it supported the Temple priests. Today, it aids our brothers and sisters in God’s Truth. Just remember, it is God who provides all basic needs, blessed even more when we help others. All who are financially blessed began a phrase to prompt action, “Pay it forward.”

Christ and we say, “Keep all things equal among you. For one who has much aids the ones with little, therefore no one member goes without life’s basic needs: food, clothing, housing and utilities.” The Bible phrases this as, “He who has much had nothing left over and he with little lacked nothing.”

Extra Oil Update 30: Barely News Answers Prayers

 Prophecy’s Extra Oil Update 30: Barely News Answers Prayers
©copyright 2009 Bonita M Quesinberry

News 11/07-11/10: 3.5 days in “terrors of end days,” Terrors continue all over but TSaS is not giving news today for a much needed physical/emotional break; Update Hurricane Ida, downgraded to a tropical storm, winds 70mph hit Louisiana, Alabama, Florida’s Panhandle, Ida killed 91 w/60 missing in El Salvador’s massive rains causing floods and mudslides; Earthquake hits Indonesia on 11/08, 1 death/many injuries reported;

It is getting very difficult to get accurate news, especially about death/injury tolls from both natural catastrophic events and wars, reports now using terms like “dozens” or “scores” or “a lot” but giving no figures or only low end numbers—URGENT watch clouds, pray for victims’ families all over the world, “pray unceasing” . . .

MESSAGE from BonnieQ: Tues 11/10—I watched the memorial for our 13 fallen heroes of Ft. Hood, Texas, today, the eve of Veterans’ Day; a very moving ceremony filled with many uplifting words from President Obama, the base chaplain, singing “Amazing Grace,” roll call and more. As thoughts of God’s Word crossed my mind, one speaker quoted Isaiah, “Who shall go for us? And, one stood and said, ‘Take me, I will go.'” This phrase was actually Christ offering himself for humanity, recited to reflect this nation’s soldiers’ vow during peacetime and in wars on foreign soils.

I’ve been hearing a common, angrily delivered charge since November 5th, “The moment I heard about the shooting I knew it was a Muslim! They shouldn’t be allowed in our military.” Others have said, “I’ve read the Quran and their belief to kill all infidels is right there!” Really? Before jumping to that conclusion and, possibly doing something stupid, please read on in the spirit and mind of Christ.

CNN interviewed several of Islam’s clerics, each of whom stated that Muslim extremists misinterpret Islam’s Quran, sadly believing it is their duty to kill all the worlds’ “infidels.” I urge God’s people and Christ’s sheep not to judge the whole of Islam by the few Muslim extremists, to refrain from and attempt to prevent others from issuing backlashes to innocent US Muslims, many of whom successfully and honorably serve in our military forces today, vowing their allegiance and love for the United States.

I am reminded of the Dark Ages, a time when millions where killed by Papal Rome for their refusal to embrace its church and dogma. I am reminded of the US, before it became a nation; a time when Sabbatarians were beaten in their own homes, jailed and even hanged for violating Sunday; a day clearly not sanctified by God or Christ. Look at the many misinterpretations of the Holy Bible then and the vast majority who do so today, much to their own demise.

I’ve heard many statements based on misinterpretations: “It’s full of wars and killings” and “It’s a book full of sex, so what’s wrong with enjoying a natural inclination in whatsoever way we choose” and “It’s full of kings with multiple wives” and “It’s all about love, nothing more; so homosexuality is acceptable because it’s all about love!” Indeed, we serve a God of love; but to twist His Word is to bring damnation down upon all those who do these blasphemous acts of disobedience. Truly serving God and following in His Son’s footsteps is to do so in love without judgment or condemnation, to embrace all in loving understanding: whether it is an understanding of their obedience or an understanding that this world is all they will have for their disobedience. We are here to warn of noncompliance with God’s Truth and to pray for the lost, the lukewarm and cold.

The comments and erroneous beliefs continue on and have been responsible for the rise of religions we easily could name to support each misinterpretation: Satan’s twist on God’s Word. Thus, the same can be said about the Bible that today is being said about the Quran. Even the Bible refers to unbelievers as “infidels.” So, should we go out and “kill all the infidels?” No!

Judgment and vengeance is God’s and God’s alone. We are to preach and teach God’s Truth, the love of God and His Christ with a message of peace and hope; and, if faced with death for our peaceful beliefs, we should spread our arms wide and say, “Take your best shot; for I guarantee that God will raise me up again.”

THIS is what Jesus did for us, both in His walk, His obedience to and teaching of God’s Truth, and when He spread His arms upon the cross: “You who follow me shall suffer for me as I have suffered for you.” WE do not deliver pain and death; WE deliver love, peaceful behaviour, and warn of violations. Beyond this we cannot enforce God’s morality; only He can do that but refuses because He gave each human the right of choice. WE of all people should honor that right in all peoples, whether they threaten our lives or accept us as we accept them.

The only thing about today’s memorial that I found disturbing was the chaplain’s prayer, rather how he closed it. Jesus said, “Whatsoever ye ask in my name, the Father will do.” The prayer was to “God Almighty” and was a request for strength, courage and the ability to move one: all wonderful, much needed petitions of the Father. However, he closed the prayer with simply “Amen,” making no request in Christ’s name.

That saddened me greatly; thus I prayed for all the same things for the living and dead soldiers, their families and friends, in Christ’s holy name. Please do the same, each and every one of you; as I pray that all of you will be as Christ and offer your hand in friendship to all our neighbors, no matter what they believe. Remember who and what you are and for whom you stand; then study below God’s Word about prayers.

Are ALL Prayers Heard?
©copyright 1988 annotations by Bonita M Quesinberry 

Does God hear every prayer uttered by every person in the world? Don’t be so quick to say ‘yes;’ for God’s short answer is NO. He neither hears nor responds to prayers spoken by the wicked and filthy, they who demonstrate unbelief despite, perhaps, expressing belief or not; albeit, He does give to them their hearts desires: as scripture states, “God is kind even to the wicked while they are here.” Other verses clarify: this world is all they will ever have; thus, when they die a physical death, there will be only a second death to come: death of their spiritual being that gave life to their flesh garment.

God’s examples of unbelief are disobedience and a heartfelt desire and/or request for things of this world. Jesus did not pray for such things and He was wholly obedient, which John 17:9-10 validates. II Chronicles 7:14 states: “IF His people turn from their wicked ways, then God will hear.” Obviously, hearing and replying to prayer depends on demonstrated BELIEF by being obedient and for WHAT it is we are asking.

On the other hand, Truth doers, who demonstrate belief and whom God does hear, are instructed to pray for the wicked and filthy. One might ask, however, who are non-believers and believers? God’s words from the Authorized King James Version Bible, following below, explain both. Unbelief is demonstrated in various ways, some not as readily detectible as others. A prior TSaS article defines, “Who Are True Believers.”

Tales abound about various people having uttered a prayer similar to: “God, if you really exist, then…” and they state what it is they want, then declare He answered their plea. Yet, the very wording of their opening statement to God proclaims disbelief of His existence. Scripture validates: “God does not hear prayers of the wicked and filthy.” Thus, it is a certainty He does not hear those who doubt His very existence.

Some might point to Apostle Thomas Didymus—remember “Doubting Thomas?” (John 20:24-29) It is important to note: 1. Thomas did not question God’s existence; and 2. He did not deny Jesus was exactly who He claimed to be. What Thomas doubted was Christ’s resurrection from the dead, nothing more. Thus, Thomas demonstrated “O, ye of little faith,” but he did not at all lack belief.

There are those who claim belief and do seem to credit God with all they have, yet remain unbelievers in His eyes. Not to preclude average to middle income people, most highly visible among these unbelievers are celebrities, including those of the pulpit: all of whom state God has blessed them with their greatest desires—fame, fortune, success and a world who loves them. Listen to what to celebrities say at various televised award ceremonies. Listen to what is said on TBN and DayStar.

The latter have firmly entrenched the world into what are supposed to be God’s spiritual ministries absent of fame and fortune. Not only them but also denominations around our planet do the same. So, one might say, “We’ve only to call upon the name of the Lord” (Romans 10:13). There is more to it than one singular verse out of God’s Written Word. If no more than calling upon the Lord were all it takes to be saved, then why were we warned that even the demons profess the Lord: yet they will be destroyed.

Thus, calling upon the Lord is but one part of the whole; and, it is only the whole that results in life everlasting. Taking one verse, while excluding all other relevant text, is exactly what corporate Christendom does to justify the lies they teach and the wayward ways in which they live: “smooth words,” and their followers love it so. The road to utter destruction is paved with lies, innuendos and omissions.

Therefore, prayers being heard and granting hearts desires are two entirely separate issues as well as events. Every human on this planet is granted the true desire of his or her heart: which isn’t to say his or her prayers are heard, too. The wicked and filthy desire things of this world and they have them, whatever those might be: fame, fortune, power, success at whatever level or even lack of success, drugs, alcohol—the list goes on. To have or not to have things of this world has little to do with determining belief but everything to do with determining the heart’s desire. If the desire isn’t spiritual, then the person isn’t God’s child.

God’s people desire spiritual things, thus even their prayers are heard. In summary, it would behoove us all to be very careful about what we ask of God: worldly or spiritual. Nevertheless, read what God has to say about whom He hears and to whom He turns a deaf ear. * * * * *

I Samuel 8:18—Ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen you; and the Lord will not hear you in that day.

II Chronicles 7:14—IF MY PEOPLE, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS; THEN WILL I HEAR from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Job 35:12-13—There they cry, but none giveth answer, because of the pride of evil men. Surely God will not hear vanity, neither will the Almighty regard.

Psalm 17:1—Hear the right, O Lord, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer that goeth not out of feigned lips.

Psalm 109:2~,3-7—The mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful are opened against me: they have spoken against me with a lying tongue. They compassed me about also with words of hatred; and fought against me without a cause. For my love they are my adversaries: but I give myself unto prayer. And they have rewarded me evil for good, and hatred for my love. Set thou a wicked man over him: and let Satan stand at his right hand. When he shall be judged, let him be condemned: and let his prayer become sin.

Psalm 145:17-20—The Lord is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works. The Lord is nigh unto [near] all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth. He will fulfill the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them. The Lord preserveth all them that love him: but all the wicked will he destroy.

* * * * * Note the line stating God hears ONLY those who call upon Him in TRUTH. Truth is one piece of God’s armor, which happens to be His Law: as confirmed in Psalm 119:142,151. The requirement of obeying same, in order to enter Yeshua’s kingdom, is established in Isaiah 26:2 as well as three times in The Revelation.  * * * * *

Proverbs 15:8-9—The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord: but the prayer of the upright is his delight. The way of the wicked is an abomination unto the Lord: but he loveth him that followeth after righteousness.

Proverbs 21:12-13—The righteous man wisely considereth the house of the wicked: but God overthroweth the wicked for their wickedness. Whoso stoppeth his ears at the cry of the poor, he also shall cry himself, but shall not be heard.

Proverbs 28:9—He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination.

Isaiah 1:15—And when ye [who have committed abominations before the Lord] spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.

Isaiah 59:1-4—Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: but your iniquities [sins] have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear. For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered perverseness. None calleth for justice, nor any pleadeth for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity.

Zechariah 7:11-13—They refused to hearken, and pulled away the shoulder, and stopped their ears, that they should not hear. Yea, they made their hearts as an adamant stone, lest they should hear the Law, and the words which the Lord of hosts hath sent in his spirit by the former prophets: therefore came a great wrath from the Lord of hosts. Therefore it is come to pass, that as [all the people of the land] cried, and they would not hear; so they cried, and I would not hear, saith the Lord of hosts:

Matthew 5:44~,45—I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute; that ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

Luke 18:10-14—Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess. And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God merciful to me a sinner. I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased [humiliated]; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted [made glorious].

John 9:31—We know that God heareth not sinners: but if any be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.

John 17:8~,9-10—They have believed that thou didst send me. I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.

Romans 2:12-13—For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law; for not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified. {refer back to Luke 18:10-14}

Romans 10:10-13,17—For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

I Peter 3:7—Ye husbands, dwell with [your wife] according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.

I John 5:16—If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask [for his brother], and [God] shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it.

EVIDENCE: those who CONSISTENTLY VIOLATE even one of GOD’S TEN COMMANDMENTS, his or her PRAYERS ARE NOT HEARD. But, what if he or she is wholly obedient yet seems to receive no answer? Believers’ prayers always are heard. God’s answer might be a resounding NO, or it might be LATER. It is crucial to remember: our Lord does everything in His children’s best interest or the best interest of a person on whose behalf we pray and in perfect timing. What our little finite brain might decide is best, actually could be the worst thing in the end of a matter: especially if it puts another’s and/or our salvation at risk. Additionally, we might be asking in error: which is to ask for things of this world, including someone’s life.

Bear in mind: Apostle James is speaking only to Christ’s church, not the world at large, wherein c.4 v.1-4 and v.6 state: “From whence come wars and fightings among you? Come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members? 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 an enemy of God. But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.”

James goes on to say in v.7-10: “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh [near] to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double-minded. Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.”

What is it to be double-minded? It is to think we can have one foot in the world and the other in righteousness yet maintain assurance of salvation. God says we either live in the world, thus not His, or we are not of this world and belong to Him. We cannot have both, which is to say “maybe” to God instead of a definitive “yes or no.” Demonstrating a “maybe” to God is to be “lukewarm:” as noted in Revelation 3:15-17. This world, as we know it, is temporary. What God offers is permanent. Therefore and whether consciously or unconsciously, people make a solid decision for one or the other. As far as God is concerned, there is no middle road.

Is God contradicting Himself when, on the one hand, He says to rejoice in the Lord and find His Law a delight; yet on the other hand, He says to mourn and weep? No, He is not contradictory. To mourn and weep is to do so over how utterly we have sinned against our Creator, forthrightly admitting our sins thus humbling ourselves before Him in full repentence and utter obedience. Also, we are to mourn and weep over the encompassing wickedness in this world.

Only then can we rejoice in the Lord and find His Law a delight: obeying not because we “have” to, which is legalism, but rather because in humility and love we “want” to obey. “His law is not grievous.” It is not terrible or burdensome, not impossible to follow, as the world would have us believe.

Nevertheless, without the love of God in our hearts, we never will obey totally: thus, marked UNBELIEVER. We can claim belief all day and even find others who will say we do believe, but this doesn’t mean God seals us as a believer. Are your prayers being heard? If not and you wish to be heard, then examine: 1) your requests—are they worldly or spiritual—and, 2) scrutinize where you might be falling short of Adonai’s Statutes of Life; submit and obey in humility…but, ONLY IF you truly love our Father more than you love the world and its things and its people.

As Jesus said, “If you love the world and if you love mother, father, brother, sister, even friends, and your life more than me; then you are not worthy of me. You are not worthy of the kingdom.”

——Watch the clouds between mid-October to mid-November henceforth until no later than 2011. Hebrews indicates 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.”

His Correction Rod

His Correction Rod

©copyright 2006 Bonita M Quesinberry, R.C.  

christlighthouse.jpg 

 

Christ’s sheep are warriors on a spiritual battlefield,

where cannot be seen are the weapons we wield.

On Power’s side we exchange blows with Principality,

whose missiles are felt in pained reality;

for Satan strikes body and heart to form a deadly deal,

determined to impress upon us death’s seal. 

 

Christ’s soldiers do comprehend the power of words spoken;

understanding Truth is God’s mighty token 

while Lucifer’s lies are his power of vile destruction;

thus, we bear only Word’s sword for construction,

praying for the wicked and filthy to be awoken,

that they be not crushed: rather for Christ broken. 

 

Send not away messengers of Truth from God,

for by their words they bear His correction rod

to turn you back from forever ash and sod.

 

In frantic rage, that chthonic Devil will knock you down;

hoping to twist your mind and spin you around,

attempting to fill you up with his deceitful mind game:

be warned, he does it all in Jesus’ good name

while singing a song to harps strumming a heavenly sound.

Beware, lest he hammers you into the ground.

 

His beautiful side does mimic the Light he hopes you buy;

though if you turn to follow it, flawed you cry.

God then will take away the power of His words from you,

putting upon you all the things of fear, too.

Be not deceived by Satan’s illusive light on the fly,

for it brings on God’s fire and you will twice die. 

 

Turn not away messengers of Truth from God,

for by their words they bear His correction rod

to turn you back from forever ash and sod.

The Beautiful Side of Evil

The Beautiful Side of Evil

The beautiful side of evil: now that must seem a very contradictory statement to most Christians. After all, we think of evil as ugly, horrible, vile; such as murder, rape, pedophilia and lying and all other sins cited in God’s Statutes of Life. Yet several times, Christ pointed to the seemingly beautiful side of evil, as did His Apostles. We must compare God’s Word to the world and people around us to understand of what He spoke.

Matthew 23:27 quotes Jesus having said, “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness.”

Scribes and Pharisees were the Hebrew religious leaders of Christ’s day; today, religious leaders are called pastors, preachers and priests. Sepulchres are tombs, graves of the dead. Looking at myriad corporate Christendom’s denominations, we find their buildings are beautiful manmade temples, of a sort, and their leaders appear to be godly men and women; but, the inside of their monuments are ugly with lies taught in Christ’s name, thus the adamant followers of those lies are deemed twice dead: UNLESS, those same adherents come out of those houses and repent of the lies to follow only God’s Word.

In this last church age of Laodicea, Revelation 18:4 finds God instruction, “Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” To receive Revelation’s last plagues is to receive a death sentence: twice dead. The term her refers directly to Revelation’s great whore and her harlot daughters; the apostate synagogues. A prophetic righteous woman is a metaphor describing Christ’s true church/people; a fallen woman is an analogy for a corrupt church/people: they commit spiritual adultery against God, thus are His enemies.

Therefore, we know to look at what appears to be Christian but is a lie: wolves in sheep’s clothing, their followers being goats in sheep’s clothing. Revelation 17:1-7 finds John amazed at what the angel had shown him; for what he saw appeared to be Christ’s church persecuting Christ’s church. Indeed, that had to be a stunning sight and certainly beyond John’s or our experience of how the church should behave.

Therefore, all this hoopla about Islamic and Muslim radicals and terrorists persecuting so-called Christians has nothing to do with Christ’s and John’s declarations of Christ’s sheep being persecuted. The only relevance these have in prophecy is to identify the ending of the Philadelphia age and the beginning of the Laodicea age, which began in 1991.

As Jesus and John indicated, so-called Christians today are persecuting God’s Truth speakers, calling them the same things Christ was called: blasphemers, false prophets, and doing the Devil’s work. Alas, the day soon comes when those same professed Christians will even kill some of God’s Truth speakers— Matthew 10:17, Revelation 11. It is written!

Paul revealed the mastermind behind these apostate denominations/religions in II Corinthians 11:12-15, “For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And, no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.” Satan is a master of disguise and lies. Of course, their end will be utter destruction.

The Light is beautiful in Truth; therefore, when Satan and his ministers appear as light, they seem beautiful on the surface and, because they sparingly use the Word of God— albeit, twisted— they seem right to man’s way of thinking. However, when their teachings in Christ’s name are compared to the whole of God’s Word, ugly lies are revealed. II Timothy 3:5 describes them as “having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.” To deny the power of God is to do things man’s way instead of God’s way. Here again God directs His people to “come out of her.”

In Luke 13:24-27 Jesus states that He does not know those false ministers of light, despite their claims to have eaten and drank in His presence while He taught in their streets. And, He does not know their followers in Matthew 25:1-12, referring to them as foolish virgins. In John 8:19, He states why He doesn’t know them: because they don’t know Him or His Father. If they had, they would have obeyed God instead of man.

Christ further describes those unknown to Him in Matthew 7:21-23, when they declare to Him that they have prophesied in His name, cast out devils and done many wonderful works in His name. Again, we are directed to see what only seems to be the Christian church, they that will never enter the Kingdom.

To not know Christ and the Father is to live by man’s teachings instead of God’s; to follow man’s commandments instead of Jehovah’s: yet, in all ways except the most important, these appear to be Christians. To be unknown to Christ is to be unknown to God, therefore marked for slaughter.

How many times have we heard someone say, “Well, yeah, the denominations are corrupt and some of their teachings aren’t in agreement with the Bible; but they do a lot of good in Christ’s name! Doesn’t that count with God?” Most Christian sects do a lot of things man deems good and so do their followers; however, if they don’t obey God instead of man, all the good they do does not count. As God said in the Old Testament, “It’s as if they slit the throat of a dog and offered it as a sacrifice to Me.” Wholly unacceptable! Christ made this clear both by His teachings and how He lived: He obeyed God’s Law, which is God’s Doctrine, all Twelve of the Laws, and told us to do the same.

The traditions of this Christian appearing, beautiful side of evil include Christmas, Easter and Thanksgiving; all pagan festivals incorporated into Christ’s church, defiling it. Ah, yes, how beautiful the Christmas tree decorated in gold and silver with merrily twinkling lights, surrounded by gaily wrapped gifts. How fun Easter with its fairytale of bunnies bringing colorfully sweet Easter eggs and little fuzzy chicks piled in pretty baskets for the hunt. Oh, and the delicious delicacies and desserts served up on Thanksgiving.

It has been said by many, “Well, we know those holidays originated in pagan pomp and ceremony, but we are celebrating Christ’s birth on December 25th for lack of knowing when He was really born; and, we give gifts to each other because the three kings gave gifts to Jesus. We celebrate His resurrection and being thankful to the Lord!” Really? Then, why are fables incorporated into Easter’s theme and why is the tradition of Thanksgiving centered on food; both of which are directly related to pagan fertility and harvest gods, respectively?

If the intent is to celebrate Jesus, why not observe Passover as instructed, instead of paganistic rituals? All the commercial to do and billions of dollars spent in purchasing gifts called for a specific holiday frequently puts many people in financially dire straits. Give a gift any time of the year for absolutely no reason!

Why bother to go to your denominational building on those holidays when, perhaps, you go no other time of the year? Hypocrisy, all of it is hypocrisy; just as Jesus called it. Even if you go to church every Sunday, it remains hypocrisy in that Sunday is not God’s and Christ’s seventh day Sabbath: never has been and never will be, for it’s a counterfeit representative of Satan and was established by his ministers seemingly of Light and from which God is calling out His people, so as to not get caught in Satan’s web of deceit.

Beware of pastors and preachers and kings, for they speak not with the mouth of God but from the lusts of their hearts. They are like dogs who turn to eat their own vomit, which is to say they believe and live their own lies— paraphrased Matthew 16:6,11-12; Mark 8:15; 12:38-40; Luke 12:1-2; 20:46; Philippians 3:2; Colossians 2:8; II Peter 2:18-22; 3:17.

It is all about money, thus this is why they are preaching prosperity, that you must help them to prosper so you can prosper; it’s about getting you in and of the world, which prepares you for slaughter at earth’s end. As Psalm 144:8,11 points out, their mouths speak vanity and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood. Proverbs 11:9 warns that the hypocritical mouth destroys all who hear and abide by their words. Christ declared His sheep as “in the world but not of the world.”

Jeremiah 23:16 even warns us about their prophets, “Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you: they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the Lord.”

Consider the Left Behind series, a very vain, worldly interpretation of The Revelation. Yeah, it sounds great, every human being ultimately will be saved because Christ kills the beast— which they claim is the battle of Armageddon— then He reigns here for 1000 years to personally teach the wicked and filthy that did not repent before His return: it is all a lie and anyone who embraces their interpretations will be left behind quite dead.

Oh, but there is more to the beautiful side of evil that, as importantly, impacts our young. There is the glitz and glamour of television and Hollywood’s movies, the models’ catwalk swaying in elegant designer clothes, and the music industry’s evil rhythm; all beguiling our young to look upon their beautiful celebrities as idols while encouraging bias based on looks and size, therefore promoting anorexia and bulimia and, at the same time, promising love and wealth beyond imagination.

They encourage sin to the max: homosexuality, fornication, adultery, divorce, immodest apparel AND idolatry. They promote the illusion that fun must include alcohol and drugs. As long as you love, then it doesn’t matter how much you sin: you are forgiven automatically. Not true, and this beautiful side of evil prepares the young for slaughter, because parents and corporate Christendom are allowing it. Idolatry, plain and simple. Anytime a person or entity goes against God’s Word, that person or entity has set up self as a god thus become guilty of idolatry.

Worse, those so-called Christian religions are promoting all of it, too. They preach worldly riches sanctioned by Christ, even saying that the poor among us do not have Jesus. Going a step farther into the world, they now have their own blockbuster movies starring some of Hollywood’s elite with others promoting those films. But, even worse, they declare those movies right with God’s Word. And, they have gold winning musicians with award events mimicking those of the world’s wicked entertainment industry. And, some of their singing goats have crossed over to the pop industry because there is more money and fame to be had. 

Consider television’s Extreme Makeover, Home addition. In the name of doing good, they replace a family’s 900-square foot house with a 5,000 square foot house. Did anyone think to ask if they could afford the increase in property taxes such a change would cause? Did they think to ask if they could afford the utilities to heat and cool another 4,100 square feet of living space? Did anyone think to consider whether or not the family could even afford to maintain such a large home?

Worse, did they ever think about how unfair it is to help one family each week for six months out of each year when there are tens of thousands of needy families who are watching the show with hope that someone will help them? And, Oprah Winfrey’s Angel Network is no better. Not only is her help selective but her lifestyle promotes fornication and living together without benefit of marriage. Yet, she claims to be a Christian.

Also, consider television’s Extreme Makeover offering a complete body makeover to qualified candidates. What qualifies a candidate? Being ugly by man’s estimation. Face lifts, breast and buttock augmentations, lip enhancement, nose jobs, tummy tucks, fat suctioned off, complete dental work for a bright white, perfect smile. All in the name of helping someone with low self-esteem about his or her looks.

Again, Oprah Winfrey is no better, for she promotes sexual beauty with clothes and makeup as well as hair design. Once again, the promotion of what is beautiful and sexy and what is not, according to mankind. They never consider the impact on children and certainly do not consider the inner person. Why, teens today are getting breast implants, the perfect smile, nose jobs and demand designer clothes: and, parents are allowing it. Yet, their self-esteem is not improved by all that money spent achieving the perfect look.

People wonder why so many teens are depressed, suicidal and/or killing other teens, their parents and even strangers: because none of these things build self-esteem. In order to be loved, one is conned into believing that one must be beautiful and wealthy as well as famous. It is all vanity and covetousness, which according to Colossians 3:5 is idolatry. Well, there just went the first four of God’s Precepts right along with the tenth one.

Another beautiful side of evil is man’s modern medicine and many miracles they do claim. In truth, doctors really do not know preventive medicine; so, the response to any health issues is to over medicate or cut it out or both: in any case weakening or outright destroying the immune system. A magic pill to stop pain, another magic pill to kill infections, another to bring sleep, one to treat mental disorders . . . Well, the list goes on.

Despite claims to the contrary, all pharmaceuticals cause side effects, meaning they are poison to the human body: some acting faster than others. There is not one drug that cures anything. It’s more like putting gauze over a mortal wound and calling it healed, yet the patient is still bleeding internally: sooner or later the patient will die.

The most glaring fact that modern medicine really is not a miracle provided by God is found in the first line of the Hippocratic Oath taken by doctors when they are ready to practice their craft: “I swear by Apollo, the physician, and Asclepius and Heal and All-Heal and all the gods and goddesses that, according to my ability and judgment, I will keep this oath and stipulation . . .” to do no harm. As readily can be discerned, this oath is to every false Greek god there is or ever was; therefore, by this we should understand who is the father of modern medicine. It’s NOT God. God gives herbs for our dis-ease.

What about that beautiful side of modern medicine helping childless couples have a baby by either test tubes or infetro-fertilization? Oh, how happy are the couples when they bear a child by one of those procedures OR contract with a surrogate mother, who may or may not give them the baby when it arrives; yet, they give no thought to the fact that they have side-stepped God and paid no heed to Abraham and Sarah’s story. Nothing good ever comes from turning from God’s way and God’s timing and walking according to His plan. Sooner or later, something will go awry when we function by man’s terms.

This is not to say there is no need for doctors. We do need them to stitch up terrible wounds and to set broken bones or to assist in an emergency. We don’t need their drugs nor do we need their surgeries. The writer hereof learned these facts the hard way. To quote a holistic practitioner, “Doctors tend to bury their mistakes.” This pen’s son said, “Doctors are population controllers.” Well, they continually do perform scientific experiments on us: how much can we inflict upon the human body before it dies.

Yes, all the things discussed hereinabove, at first glance, appear beautiful and good and wonderful and surely provided by or spoken by God; but, they all are an abomination to Him and His vengeance is about to be exacted upon this wicked world. It is a world about to die.

Remember II Peter 3:11-12 for what our focus should be, “Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of person ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat. Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of Him in peace, without spot and blameless.”

What part of the beautiful side of evil still remains in your life? Are you willing to give it up for everlasting life in paradise?
