Prophecy’s Extra Oil 58: Hidden in Plain Sight
©copyright 2010 Bonita M Quesinberry
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.”
His Correction Rod
©copyright 2006 Bonita M Quesinberry, R.C.
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.
