Extra Oil: All Roads Lead to Rome

On Sabbath 03/11/11, RDK shared “Extra Oil: Remnant Are Tares?” with our brethren, of which research was performed and submitted by our Florida Sister Tammy– Gleaned from Versebyverseradio.org – 03-03-11, Tampa Bay, Fla. 33765. Steve Kreloff, Pastor, Lakeside Community Chapel (non-denominational), and a Teacher since 1981, born and raised an Orthodox Jew­­–­ the summarized excerpt below from the above “Oil” is a reminder of what has prompted today’s “All Roads Lead to Rome”:

Steve Kreloff labeled Christ’s remnants “tares, heretics, antichrists, legalists, false teachers, false prophets and Judaizers. He referred to Paul’s warning and added, “If they teach that Jesus is not God, then they are ‘teaching another Jesus’ and, basically, there is no light in them. They are like the Gnostics and will not go to heaven.”
—— God’s Logic: We are accustomed to being called ‘legalists’ but not the charge of ‘Judaizers’ for yet a second time: not long ago we had reported another pastor labeling us ‘legalists and Judaizers’ in his sermons. This reveals that all sect leaders are being directed to deliver the same message to their respective flocks. ­
—— Earlier, Kreloff added to the charge of being Judaizers, “They are determined to live the Mosaic Law.” Kreloff obviously does not understand the difference between types of law known as Statutes/Precepts and Ordinances; that Moses’ Law was and is specific temporary Ordinances while God’s Statutes were written in stone by God’s own finger and are His perpetual Law: the only Law He ever intended and still wants mankind to obey. He never wanted ordinances but the people insisted upon Egyptian-like sacred pomp and ceremony, Egypt’s rituals to their many gods.
—— Kreloff rounded out his charges against us with every known false and pagan religion when he compared us to Gnostics, a religious group that teaches of a supreme God, among other gods, who is fallible and makes mistakes just as man does and that He really is not God: another god, Lucifer, is the real God. Gnostics were and are considered “disconnected and contrary to the Orthodox, that is to say, Catholic Church who slaughtered many Gnostics, as well as Christ’s remnants, during the Dark Ages; but the Gnostic religion survives to this day.
——Kreloff implied that the “Orthodox Christian Churches” are the great whore of Catholicism, her harlot daughters Protestant and Pagan; all of whom are recognized by Sunday’s umbilical cord between mother and daughters. More so, Kreloff came just short of admitting today’s unity between Protestant denominations and Papal Rome; an iron clad union denied for nearly 2000 years.
—— Thus, the charges against Christ’s remnant are that we: teach a different Jesus, use mysticism, spread myths and legends; and we are: heretics, antichrists, false prophets, Judaizers, terrorists; and we: do not believe saved by grace and grace alone, thus are determined to live the Mosaic Law— in short, Christ’s remnant are pure evil. Kreloff went on to say, “Those who have left the Orthodox Christian Churches are the “tares” (weeds), heretics and antichrists.” He referred to Paul’s statement about spies coming into their midst, without the Apostles’ awareness, to learn what they were teaching; then, they left to start their own form of Christianity: Kreloff laid that action at our feet today, we are “spies in the Orthodox Christian Churches that then leave to start our own religion.”
—— By Sunday’s own statements they imply that Jesus, the Apostles and their proselytes were Judaizers thus false prophets and antichrists. Is this not true? Of course it is because Jesus obeyed God’s Law and taught others to do the same; so did His Apostles and their followers. Specifically regarding the Fourth Precept, the Book of Acts contains numerous accounts of their obedience to God’s Sabbath, that of which Christ said He also is Lord; meaning it is His Seal of Authority as well as God’s: the very Seal we demonstrate in our foreheads— both intellectual and love inspired obedience. Sunday’s implication is just as damning blasphemy had they boldly made the accusation against Christ and the Apostles.
—— Rest assured that Kreloff and those like him will have their goats going after those who have left SDA Conference churches: this is likely the reasoning behind SDA’s lawsuit against those who have left the Conference churches yet use an amended form of the SDA name. An effective way to encourage people to rise up in rage toward Christ’s remnant is to declare us “pure evil” and “haters of world peace” and to win a lawsuit against us as well as for “refusing unity.” The day rapidly approaches.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

—— Roads to Rome: Each time Christ’s remnants were labeled ‘Judaizers’ by two different pastors of two separate denominations during the last twelve months, we felt the term would lead right back to Rome: her instruction or defining judgment against the remnant, as it were, to her harlot daughters around the world. Sister Tammy’s research this past week resulted in proof that, indeed, the term ‘Judaizers’ was coined by Rome in Councils; ‘Judaizers’ are “lovers of Jews who observe the seventh day as God’s Sabbath.”
—— Council of Laodicea:Christians must not judaize by resting on the [seventh day] Sabbath but must work on that day; but, if any shall be found to be Judaizers let them be anathema* from Christ.” ~ Council of Laodicea, Canon 29, A.D. 360
*Anathema: Greek– accursed, maranatha, greatly cursed, excommunicated
—— Council of Florence: “All, therefore, who observe . . . the [seventh day] Sabbath and the other requirements of the Law, it [the Roman Church] declares [them] alien to the Christian faith and not in the least fit to participate in eternal salvation. ~ In the Bull (Cantate Domino) Feb. 04, 1441 during Council of Florence
—— The Councils of Florence and Laodicea together clearly state that, IF we obey God’s Sabbath and/or ALL of God’s Law, we are denied salvation by the Pope’s act of excommunicating us from Christ, denied as sinners against the Orthodox Christian faith, God, and Christ: declared “not in the least fit for everlasting life.” Previous Oils included Vatican quotes declaring the Pope as having the divine right to choose a day, any day of the week for the Christian Sabbath and the divine right to judge, condemn, and destroy anyone who refuses to follow the Church’s dictates. (Interesting, in that only God has the right to destroy any or all things He has created. When man executes condemnation it is, according to God, vengeance; which is His and His alone.)
—— The Vatican’s declaration does not hold up to the New Testament: “violating even one of God’s laws is to be guilty of defying them all and such persons will be “utterly destroyed”. . .  BY GOD, not by the Pope’s order to be carried out by men: i.e. his Jesuit army. Contrary to the Vatican, three times Revelation defines those redeemed as, “they who obey God’s Commandments and have the faith of Jesus Christ.”
—— The Vatican’s charges and behaviors against Christ’s Remnant along with teaching people it is a sin worthy of death if they obey any or all of God’s Law are enough lies for God to destroy her with her daughters and followers; further damnation is to persecute Christ’s remnant, but even more damning is her expressed hatred of the Jews– which today she denies. However, she commits a greater offense: blasphemy of the Holy Ghost. The denial of God’s Law is proof enough to determine who are Satan’s synagogues.
—— There is no doubt, and never has been, that Satan first wanted the chosen people (Jews) destroyed but God saved 10-per cent of them: Lucifer then could not prevent a promised Messiah. So, when Christ was born, he set out to kill Him. When that failed, the Devil deigned to discredit Jesus in a way that would have Rome kill him, thinking that would be the end of it. However, Christ rose from the grave, setting into motion a Jesus-following that spread around the world until, today, about 80% of the population claims to be Christians, one-third sincerely and two-thirds insincerely.
—— Lucifer then meant to destroy Christ’s church and the Holy Scrolls, the Bible as it were. He almost, but not quite, succeeded in both goals. Having failed yet again, The Destroyer then set His sights on the Holy Bible; its destruction would cause mankind to heed only the Pope’s word. He failed again when, in 1611, the AKJV Bible was available to every human and, by A.D. 1844, the Truth was being preached one more time until earth’s end. 1844 was the time for Lucifer to direct his attention onto the Remnants of today and, by man’s laws, have them deemed criminals, without representation, and subject to the Pope’s judgment with death penalties determined on everyone tried.
—— True Remnants have no problem being labeled Judaizers, despite the negative connotation Rome puts into it, for we are delighted to be of God’s chosen people; to be a Jew at heart and adoption, if not by blood; excited to be grafted into the Jewish Tree of Life. We perceive no negative at all in this terminology, but it has become a cold, hard fact that Rome and her daughters define ‘Judaizers” as the lowest of the low, filthiest of the filthy, vilest of the vile: we will not bow to Papal gods nor kiss his ring, neither honor his blasphemous Sun–day.
—— There is not one of Satan’s civil goals for today that have not been realized: we wait only for the Pope to order us up for trial or death on the spot. On the other hand, there is not one of God’s prophecies unfulfilled right up to Christ’s return. There are far too many of Christ’s Remnants mistakenly believing that a number of prophecies have not occurred and will not be until there is a Federal Blue Law on the U.S. books.
—— Nearly all, if not all, other countries have federal blue laws; but then, those nations do not necessarily have individual State Blue Laws. IF a U.S. Federal Blue Law were needed before Laodicea could begin and all other prophecies begin thereafter, the Remnant will be surprised to learn it happened long before 1991, the beginning of Laodicea. Read about the U.S. Federal Blue Law below:

—— Federal Blue Law: All who wait for a Federal Blue Law need not wait any longer: it was achieved in A.D. 1961 by a Federal Supreme Court ruling in “McGowan vs. Maryland, Citation No. 366US420.” The case-in-point was McGowan’s effort to prove that Maryland’s secular law forcing all businesses to close on Sunday is a violation of the U.S. Constitution. McGowan, a Remnant, filed the suit based on the law being an economic hardship on Sabbatarians and allows union of Church and State.
—— The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that, because it is a secular law as opposed to religious, it is NOT a violation of the Constitution preventing union of State and Church. “‘McGowan vs. Maryland’ was a United States Supreme Court case in which the court held that laws with religious origins are not unconstitutional if they have secular purpose.” This statement witnesses to the precedent having a loophole to religious applications: it clearly does not differentiate between secular and ecclesiastical. McGowan might have faired better in court if his case had been based on discrimination.
—— RDK has, for many years, informed the Remnant that the U.S. has a little known law giving it the discretion and power to support, and rule on behalf of, all State Laws. The Remnant majority still “waits for a Federal Blue Law, believing that without one, much of prophecy has yet to even begin muchless currently be fulfilled.”
—— The 1961 case set a precedent, effectively establishing a Federal Blue Law: this would not be recognized by anyone unless they understood what it means to “set a precedent;” especially considering that, a few years ago, the chief U.S. Supreme Court Judge stated in an interview, “We are not in the business of establishing laws . . . well, we, there are certain, uh . . . ” He tripped all over himself trying to avoid explaining precedents, which he did avoid with much stammering but finally continued, “We are here to interpret the intent of the law and to apply it accordingly.”
—— Precedents are higher court rulings contrary to or in agreement with previous lesser court rulings and that automatically become enforceable Federal laws without having to create a Senate Bill to get passed through the Legislature and House; but, ONLY IF all appeals to reverse said rulings have failed. The U.S. Supreme Court is as high as a case can be taken on appeal, no appeal allowed thereafter in that the Court’s word is final; therefore, the 1961 ruling was and remains a U.S. Federal Blue Law. It does not matter that it does not include an ecclesiastical statement: it nonetheless governs both Saturday and Sunday contrary to Saturday thus maintains an economic hardship on the Remnant as well as validates Rome’s World Church Charter-Doctrine and preformatted Mandates.
—— As the leader of specific Blue Law lobbyists, the Vatican denies a Federal Law has existed for 50 years: it does not want people to know just how far into prophecy is the world, therefore it will continue to lobby our Federal Government in the guise of seeking a declared and passed Senate bill. It will not come to fruition. Alas, it is this deceit that keeps the blind and deaf from knowing and heeding God’s Truth as well as keeps a majority of Sabbatarians in the dark prophetically; that in itself preventing them from being fully prepared for Christ’s arrival. They easily could become the Remnant virgins who did not bring extra oil for their lanterns in the event the Groom tarries.
——Seeking a Federal Blue Law was necessary to convince people that the Remnant will not be able to buy or sell 24/7/365— not true and never was true. The relevant Revelation passage means “an economic hardship”— a hardship does not mean an utter lack of: rather, it is the ability to achieve but with difficulty— for we never have been able to “buy or sell” on Sabbath and, due to man, neither can we “buy or sell” on Sunday.
—— Satan’s goats buy and sell six days per week, more often seven— truly economic discrimination against Christ’s Remnant and an economic boom for Sunday’s people. We know the above Revelation interpretation to be accurate based on God’s Word elsewhere assuring that, during this era, we will not go without yet the worldly will lose all they have: a “hardship,” therefore, is the only possible explanation of Revelation 13:16-17.
—— Again, however, we say there was and still is no a need for a Federal Blue Law. The irreversible precedent above, however, merely covers all of Papal Rome’s bases and solidifies her control over the world’s governments and their leaders. It prevents any and all suits from being filed much less tried, allowing persecution to proceed unimpeded. Recently, the Pope was quoted saying he controls the world, of which no nation stood up to deny. To make this statement, that otherwise would be deemed presumptuous, he had to know with absolute certainty that all matters necessary to assure control were firmly in place and international leaders already bowing to his authority and demands. We have proven this so in previous “Extra Oils.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Daniel’s 490-yr Prophecy: We addressed this prophecy on several occasions, more recently to clarify why Sunday’s teaching that the last 7-years had not been fulfilled but, purportedly, the seven years were just recently completed and the “secret rapture” occurred: albeit, they offer no proof of the event. Of the various reasons we gave to prove the 70-weeks, that is 490-years, began and ended unceasing, there is one more validation.
—— It was “in the midst of” the last seven years that Christ was to die: precisely on time, three and a half years into the seven, Jesus was hung on the cross. IF the prophecy were to end with His death, then it would have been a 66.5-weeks portent. Instead, the fact is that the end years totaled seven, and He died half way through the seven; which implied there would be another remarkable event to occur that would end the 490-years, which includes its last seven years.
—— IF, however and according to Sunday, the total of seven years were to be fulfilled later, then by God’s standard there would have been two prophecies: one for 69-weeks (483 years) and another for 1-week (7 years). None of this would compute, for Christ’s ministry began at the start of the last 7-years and He died after completing 3.5-years of His mission. This would mean that Christ did not come when the Bible says He arrived. It also would mean that Christ would come, for the first time, today; thus Sunday’s interpretation of Daniel’s prophecy was to include and justify a “secret rapture” to take up all His earthly ministers, then return– the real second coming– at the end of seven years.
—— Such an interpretation begs the question, “Why then, between B.C. 457 to B.C. 3, would Israel have rebuilt the road from Rome to Jerusalem, rebuilt the walls and city and temple– instructed to do so in preparation for the Messiah’s coming– IF He were not scheduled to return until almost 2000-years later? Compound that dilemma with the fact that, during His ministry, Jesus prophesied that Jerusalem, including the Temple, would be destroyed after He ascended to heaven: which destruction occurred in A.D. 70.
—— The above would mean first that Daniel misinterpreted the vision given him; second, Christ’s ministry would not have occurred; and third, Jesus could not have warned of destruction in A.D. 70, having not yet come thus making the rebuilding of no necessity. Said destruction would have meant that Jerusalem and the Temple would have had to be rebuilt again, for which there would have been yet another prophecy to this effect beyond Daniel’s portent: there is not one.
—— All events, starting with the beginning of the 490-years, happened perfectly and timely right up to our Messiah’s death, resurrection and ascension; each event remarkable in itself. Precisely when the seven years were to conclude minister Stephen, of the seven ministers, was stoned to death. Then, Jesus-in-spirit form confronted Saul; chose him to replace Stephen; and renamed him Paul then directed him to minister to the gentiles.
—— That event was remarkable, first, in that Jesus very briefly returned in spirit form as opposed to a corporeal form and remarkable that He chose Paul– a Jew born in Rome thus considered Roman and a devout Pharisee; so devoted that he allowed persecution of Christ’s Apostles and proselytes (the Remnant). Who would have thought Paul would turn to Christ to become one of His most ardent and persecuted followers?
—— Paul never considered following Christ prior to His confrontation; that lack of consideration indicated when he wrote to one of the seven churches, “I do that which I do not want to do and do not do that which I want to do.” He spoke of his commitment to the Jewish faith as a Pharisee versus that of following Christ, whom he had erroneously thought of as a dangerous rebel. Paul did NOT mean he continued to sin despite not wanting to continue in sin, as Sunday loves to teach; which would have nullified Jesus’ instruction to “go and sin no more.” Still, after Christ chose Saul-Paul nothing occurred thereafter that possibly could have completed Daniel’s prophecy. The timing was perfect.
—— Ironically, after we put out the numerous reasons why Sunday was wrong in its assumption, that the last seven years would be completed thousands of years later, they came up with another Biblical seven years to apply to and explain a “secret rapture.” Those 7-years in the Old Testament were yet another misapplication; which is usual for Sunday when it comes to interpreting God’s prophecies. As God wrote of Sunday, “They are ever studying but never coming to the Truth.”

BonnieQ Update: Recent financial collapse— my Amazon Visa, Chase Card Services, has offered to set my balance at no interest with a minimum monthly payment of $165 per month for the next five years. If I maintain the payment for at least the first 8 months, they will leave the account at zero interest for 5 years; if I am late or short during that 8 months, interest will be applied thereafter at 24.9% or the current maximum.
—— They will contact me next week for my agreement or to negotiate or to refuse their offer. There remains my Bank of America Visa with a similar balance. I hope to get both to agree to $100 per month as I feel I could do that: it would be tough and I would have to greatly cut my grocery bill– Daniel got by on bread and water, so can I– but at least it helps me to repay the debt without bankruptcy. Praise the Lord, for this might be a start to solving the problem that could please our Father!
—— Until now, we had not heard a word from any of the shopping networks, which already have their money and are under no obligation to accept returns for credit, or heard from either of the banks. Now, we have only to convince Chase of $100 per month and hope to bring Bank of America on board with the same agreement. Please pray that both institutions will agree to $100 per month with balances non-interest bearing.

Closing Notes:
—— RDK still does not know how much longer we can put out the Extra Oils, if for no other reason than there is literally nothing left of which to inform Christ’s Remnants: first, due to Bonnie’s increasing difficulty using the computer. We have been advised that a voice program would be helpful but would not solve the problem of using its mouse; albeit, her doctor suggested that a touch screen might be the way to replace a mouse.
—— The second reason is due to increasing problems with our various websites and the computer’s modem appears to be going out on us, steadily working at slower speeds. Considering Bonnie’s recent financial woes, we cannot afford a voice program, touch screen, and new modem. Nevertheless, we will continue to do what we can for as long as we can; just do not be surprised if, suddenly, you no longer receive Extra Oils either privately or through the RDK group or find new ones posted at Seventh Seal Library.
—— We know many Remnant groups seek financial help from within. We will not do that: from the get-go, we promised our little flocks that nothing would ever be required of them except their prayers and to spread the word we put out via email and the Internet. We will not change; after all, God’s Word is free and so should any and all translations and interpretations He gives to us by way of His Holy Spirit. What it has cost has already been paid out-of-pocket (publishing the books without return), and what it now costs us to put out His Word is negligible. God provides and will continue to provide the means for what He wants done. If the means are not there, then He has nothing for us to do.
—— In a brief aside, recall sometime back we informed that Google is contracted with our Government to track everyone’s Internet use and to remove whatever the Feds want removed from the Internet. You might remember that a few years ago one of RDK’s posts was removed and put under military control, despite the fact we have neither written or promoted anything that would indicate terrorism; quite the opposite in that we urge the Remnant to harm neither man nor beast. Albeit, we recently learned that we are considered terrorists for our refusal to observe Sunday and accept the Pope as God.
—— The above leads to this new fact: FaceBook is now owned and controlled by Google, which may well account for the problem we are having with our FaceBook homepage and wall: specifically the post/status and comment windows running off the screen thus unable to read all that is posted or read the comments thereon. We feel it might not be long before we are removed from all websites as a danger to Satan’s plans.
——Things really will not get much worse than they are now; perhaps a few arrests and maybe a death or two; then suddenly Christ will be seen in the clouds calling our names. The Remnant are the only ones who see just how bad it is in the world, such as the world has never seen; yet, over 60-per cent of earth’s population believe nothing has changed, all is as it always has been.
—— In the interim, keep the faith; stand strong in your obedience to God and Christ; harm neither man nor beast; pray unceasing; and know that Christ is coming quickly. If Sunday confronts you before then, simply spread your arms wide as you say, “Take your best shot then watch Jesus raise me up just as He arose from His grave. Be warned: my Savior is coming quickly!”

Much love & prayers, BonnieQ

Extra Oil: What If . . .

Rapture already done; Wedding Parables’ Refresher; What if 2011 comes & goes without Christ; Doubt Satan’s Favorite Tool: 3-pgs total

Extra Oil: What If . . .
shared by Remnant Doctrine Keepers (RDK) 061011

­Rapture Done: Recently, RDK caught a brief statement on a TBN broadcast, said by one of its preachers or evangelists. He was offering prophetic explanation to, apparently, a somewhat related question as he included the following, “There is the rapture, of course, which has already happened.” He continued the topic without further ado or explanation of what he had said or even a list of all the “missing” people purportedly raptured.
—— Everyone will recall that Sunday teaches the supposed “rapture” as a secret event in which people simply disappear and in which only pastors, preachers and theologians are taken up to be prepared to assist Jesus when He and they return to earth seven (7) years later. Supposedly, they teach the wicked right along with Christ for the next one thousand (1000) years; after which those who still do not repent will be destroyed and earth will be made new. Naturally, there is not one word in the Bible to validate such an outlandish plan; in fact, it is exceedingly contrary to God’s Biblically supported plan.
—— Bear in mind, sometime last year we reported Jack Van Impe telling of this secret rapture to occur in either 2006 or 2007, later he changed it to 2010 or 2011 but BEFORE Christ returns in the clouds: ostensibly, all those church leaders will return with Him. Later, Van Impe said, “Well, not all church leaders will be going.” Apparently, Van Impe decided provision was needed in the event he was not one of those to disappear. They doubt their own interpretations and rightly so.
—— It is quite interesting that now they are saying the rapture has already occurred: pure blasphemy. Do any of you know of anyone, any godly person who has suddenly and mysteriously gone missing? Of course not! After all, God’s Word tells of Christ coming for His sheep, “Every eye shall see . . . the wicked will die at the brightness of His coming.” That does not sound like people mysteriously disappearing, disappearances that we cannot explain.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Wedding Parables: RDK began the Extra Oil series, based on Christ’s two wedding parables, to encourage Christ’s remnant until He arrives; the first being a guest not admitted due to improper dress, proper attire being the full armor of God: which most are missing that piece called Truth, according to Psalm it is God’s 12 Commandments.
—— The second parable was about the virgins with their oil lamps and extra oil for their lanterns, in case the groom was delayed; the oil in their lamps meaning they know the Truth and obey it, the extra oil representing being fully prepared for the groom’s arrival, whether on time or delayed, sustained by faith and recognizing prophecy as it unfolds.
—— We refresh your minds about the wedding parables to lend clarity to the following concern expressed by some of the remnant as we draw closer to Christ’s return expected “no later than mid-October to mid-November 2011.” Since we sent out and posted that timeframe, our websites have had many scoffers leave both hateful and/or mocking messages: this is not prepared for them; it is prepared for you, the obedient and faithful remnant of Christ.
—— Doubt, Satan’s Tool: Some of you might think I (BonnieQ) have no doubts at all about the Holy Spirit’s advanced notice; which did NOT include the specific day and hour. Well, at the time I was given the season and year, I had no doubts. Florida’s Sister Tammy, on the other hand, asked me, “What do we do and say if Christ doesn’t come at that time? I’m beginning to feel doubts about it, yet I’m determined to have faith in it.”
—— The closer we get to the time given, the more I wonder, “Will Christ really come? Or, did I somehow pick that time out of thin air? Did it really come from the Holy Spirit? After all, it has been 2000 years since Jesus was born. Could the calculation of earth’s life being 6000 years have been wrong? Maybe it is younger still?”
—— I am not immune to Satan’s wiles and his weapon of doubt. What I do know is that, if our Groom “is delayed,” Satan will flood our minds with doubt to overflowing and overwhelming. We should see Christ’s delay as the last question on our final exam. You know the one; it is usually a trick question, in this case about FAITH, but to miss it could cause us to fail the test because it counts for 60% of our final grade. Forty per cent accuracy is not good enough with our Lord: it must be 100% or nothing.
—— Back when RDK posted the wedding parables’ treatise, we discussed what the delay might mean; perhaps, there are a few straggling weeds. What better way to yank them out of the wheat field than to have them flee from among the remnant because they believe we lied, believe we are false prophets and so forth. They were among us “just in case,” not that they believed, truly loved and had an abundance of faith in the Father and Christ. 
——And, of course, the delay could serve as the final test of our faith— will we stand strong in obedience; still refuse to unite with the beast’s mark of Sunday? Will we understand that we are no longer in prophetic time, we are in real time; thus all prophecies have been fulfilled and we await only the reality of Christ coming in the clouds?  Look back at the virgins who had to leave to buy more oil for their lanterns: they were gone just long enough to make that purchase, yet they returned to find the Groom had arrived and they were now locked out of the wedding chapel.
—— If those virgins had obeyed they would have brought extra oil with them as instructed. If the Groom were delayed, they would have been prepared to wait and to wait in the faith that says He WILL arrive. They would have known that, to leave, they might miss the Groom. In their case, they failed the faith to obey and lacked faith that He would be on time: for God said, “He will not be late.” It cost them the wedding; it cost them heaven; it cost them life everlasting; it cost them the joy of walking and talking with our Savior and King and to dine with Him. When God gives instruction, we best follow them to the letter: failing to do so was what got Israel in trouble with the Father.
—— The closer we get to that glorious day, cast away all doubts; have your extra oil and faith overflowing: it will prevent Satan’s stab of doubts and wipe away those he already has put upon us. He WANTS us to be wrong, but that is his problem. After all, if we are wrong, then he has more time to deceive even more people; but that, too, is his problem. He wants us to die with him: again, that is his problem. We do not have to take his problems upon our finite shoulders thus making them our problems. If his problems become our problems, then we are doomed to twice dead.
—— If any of you are feeling doubts and uncertainty, please share them with us via email to unicornhaven@earthlink.net . Sharing our feelings helps to keep us all stronger and lets us know that we do not stand alone; for there is not one emotion that Christ has not also experienced: i.e. just before He died He cried out, “Father, why hast thou forsaken me?” Is that not doubt, the same as we feel in earth’s last hours?
—— Jesus knew, intellectually and spiritually, that our Father had not forsaken Him but, during those nine (9) hours of pure torture and agony, it felt as if God had turned away from Him. We have a general date but during these last hours, we wonder if it really will happen and, if it does not, what will others think of us. It does not matter what they think; it DOES matter what God thinks of our belief, obedience, faith and strength during these rough, uncertain times. Remember, it is a test . . . just a test. ACE IT ! ! !

Dearest brothers and sisters, I do not know how much longer I can put out the Extra Oils. The MS tremors have become so bad that it is incredibly difficult to handle the mouse, even using both hands. While I still can type, although with more typos, the mouse is essential to posting the Oils to our websites and to our private email list. Please pray that our Lord still these tremors, His will not ours, that I may continue to lift up and encourage each of you during this exciting year. All of you are such a blessing to me!
—— Revelation 22:12-14, 16, 20 “And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.” Blessed are they that do His (God’s) Commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city (New Jerusalem) . . . I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the (seven) churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star . . . Surely I come quickly.”
—— Harm neither man nor beast, continue to speak God’s Truth to the lukewarm and cold, maintain at the deepest level your faith in God’s Word and His promises, obey God’s Commandments that all will be well with you and blessings many, fear neither man nor what he can do to your flesh— he cannot slay the spirit being whom you are and for whom Christ returns. Rejoice, sing and dance; for our Savior is about to arrive in all His glory with a host of brethren angels who serve the Lord as we do!

Much love and prayers in Christ,

Prophecy’s Extra Oil Update 28: News Spirits Discerning Times copyright 2009 Bonita M Quesinberry

News 10/31-11/02: 2.5 stunning days in earth’s end days, news reports decreasing, gross repetition, make light of or not report in total, increasing difficulty getting truth of events relative to prophecy unfolding rapidly—URGENT NOW to watch the clouds . . .

Nature— (Plagues) SAN FRANCISCO, oil tanker leaks in Bay, birds/sea lions suffer, work to save; CA, temps to +80s; FLA temps to 90s; TX, temps to +70s; WA, OR temps to 59+; PHILIPPINES, 4th in 1-mo, Typhoon Mirinae hits w/100mph winds, downgrades to tropical storm, at least 14 dead; LOUISIANA, Bossier city floods levees into homes; 

PROPHECY: Nov 01, FALL BACK time— God’s charge against daylight savings, “they make day night and night day,” adds to Daniel’s warning, “they hope to change times and laws” regarding God’s day from sunset to sunset opposed to man’s day from midnight to midnight AND man’s changes to God’s prophetic times and events AND changing His Ten Statutes of Life— just a few reasons God’s wrath is pouring out on earth today; 

QUAKESlast 2.5 days– 66 quakes in Pacific “Ring of Fire” ranging from M2.5 to M6.2, lesser quakes every 35-seconds on avg. all over earth; 40-quakes in all US properties (US-48, Hawaii, Alaska, Samoa, etc), local US— CA, OK, AR, TN, most in CA-wide areas, multiples in other states; heavy clusters along Alaskan coast; Samoa islands hit again w/M5.0, then M4.9 below; Indonesia a sixth, seventh time w/M5.2 and 5.0—just highlights of a few of the 66 in the last 2.5 days; while checking Agency global map about 11:30am PST today, a M4.9 hit near Samoa islands yet again, noted above.

Discerning the Spirits
©copyright 2006 Bonita M Quesinberry

Does God give instructions and examples about discerning spirits? Verses paraphrased or quoted verbatim from the AD 1611 Authorized King James Version Bible, the only translation to make it possible for Revelation 10:11 to occur beginning in AD 1844, following the 1260 years of the Time of the Gentiles.

I Kings 3:9— Give thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people?

Solomon had been given the throne of his father, David, and asked our Lord for wisdom to properly discern all things both good and evil. Verse 11 reveals God granting his request, because “Solomon did not ask for things for himself; such as long life or riches or the destruction of his enemies: instead, Solomon had asked to discern judgment.”

This then, is the same discernment we, as Christians, are cautioned to do; that we properly identify both the spirits of good and of evil. According to I Corinthians 12:8-10, discerning of spirits is the seventh of nine Spiritual Gifts of power. However, the Gift of Discernment is reserved for those spiritually mature, according to Hebrews 5:13-14, for young Christians are considered infants in the Word of Righteousness; therefore, this is one gift that is given to all those mature, as opposed to only certain ones. The weightier matters of God’s Word belong to them of full age, those who have learned by experience to discern both good and evil. I Corinthians 2:14-15 adds that a discerner of spirits has the mind of Christ; for the flesh man rejects Spiritual things as foolishness thus he cannot know them: they must be spiritually discerned.

Ezekiel 44:23-24 a discerner of spirits teaches people the difference between the holy and profane, and cause them to learn the difference between clean and unclean. Discerners shall judge disagreements according to God’s Biblical Judgments, which define how His Precepts and/or Ordinances are to be obeyed and, if violated, declares appropriate penalty for then and today. A discerner also is defined as one who obeys God’s Laws and Statutes daily and in all God’s holy assemblies, including Sabbath obedience.

Malachi 3:18 adds that they also discern the difference between righteous and wicked, the difference between who serves God and who does not.  Ecclesiastes 8:8 adds that a wise man’s heart discerns both time and judgment; time referring to prophecy time lines as well as what God calls a day, from sundown to sundown. Today, that would include what the world calls daylight savings.

With respect to Ezekiel c.44 above, Isaiah 8:16,20 clarifies who are discerners of spirits, paraphrased: “Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples. They teach God’s Law and preach His and Christ’s testimony.” In Matthew 5:19 Jesus stated adamantly, “Who ever obeys and teaches God’s Law will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.”

Everyone needs to understand: discerning spirits is to find out who a person speaks and teaches for: both God and Satan work through human beings— Satan takes on the guise of an angel of Light and his ministers do the same. It is clear that young Christians are not sufficiently armored to discern spirits; rather, they must look to the mature Christian for guidance in discernment while also learning through experience.

For example, one professed Christian lives and teaches God’s Law as well as His and Christ’s testimonies but another says it is not necessary: the young Christian, enlightened only in the basics of salvation, easily could be wooed by the person saying it no longer matters, that all you have to do is love and believe Jesus is the Son of God. After all, it is easier to live IN and be OF this world if we go along with the majority . . . dead.

A Christian mature in God’s Word cautions the young ones that not all things taught, amidst corporate Christendom, come from God— always compare teachings with God’s Word, ALL of God’s Word on any given topic. Corporate Christendom does not teach the Bible topically, teaching only by one or two of book/chapter/verse: which is to teach without making God’s point-in-fact for absolute comprehension.

If there is so much as one flaw in a teaching, then none of that person’s teachings come from God’s Holy Spirit. We judge the spirits only by God’s Holy Word: ALL of it, not just parts here and there, taking only scriptures that, when twisted, will please the hearers. This is exactly why God gave us clear instructions on how to study His Word; for there is a great difference between reading the Bible from cover to cover versus indepth study that is Spirit guided by topic/subject that leads the student to every relative verse.

There also are the Discerners of “times:” discernment added to the gifts of prophecy and interpretation thereof with the gift of teaching same. Satan’s prophets are numerous, taught only by man and speak “smooth words” the people love to hear; while God’s end-of-days sibyls are few globally and speak only God’s interpretational “hard” Truth. This latter mature Christian is “not taught by any man” and discerns the Biblical prophetic times as well as where in prophecy mankind is standing: as today we stand in the midst of the last church age Laodicea, the seventh seal era. God’s discerners warn sheep, not the world, of ongoing signs, plagues and clearly reveal the end timeline in accordance with “no man knows the day and hour” and by the Spirit’s direction for month(s) and year(s).

If someone claims to be a Christian but does deceitful things or lies about and/or attacks other Christians or even non-Christians, he or she does so by evil spirits: certainly Christ forbids such behaviour by His sheep. If a person supports multiple differing beliefs, this also is by evil spirits; for one supports only God’s Word or they do not. Humanity is not allowed to have it both ways: no straddling the fence, not in God’s eyes. 

We are in either God’s camp or we are not. We either choose life or we do not. We either choose Truth or we do not. It is black or white: there simply are no gray areas with God; therefore, there are no gray areas with God’s chosen people and none with Christ’s sheep discerning spirits by God’s power through the Holy Ghost. Only those who, knowingly or unknowingly, discern spirits by Satan’s power teach of gray areas in life and God’s Bible-in-part, easily twisting God’s Truth to reflect matters neither He nor the Holy Spirit bring— by Satan’s power is to commit unforgivable blasphemy. It behooves everyone to gain a total understanding of that single unforgivable sin: lesson in TSaS post archives.

——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.”

——TSaS post archives open to public; members access Bible Lesson FILES. TSaS ministry neither needs nor asks for money and never will: God provides our basic needs. We ask only for prayer and that you share God’s Truth with all who will hear/read and obey in “the instant.” Be good stewards of God’s Word: share Extra Oils, lead everyone to God’s Biblical Truth at — http://groups.yahoo.com/group/truthseekersandspeakers

The World’s Only Impenetrable Armour
©copyright 1998 Bonita M Quesinberry

excerpt TRUTH GATHERING, ©copyright 1998, AKJV exhaustive Topical Bible of all critical-to-salvation subjects; chapter 9: God’s Armour, pages 169-170. Key verse phrases appear in bold print within entire scripture, notes within {brackets} and supplied words for definition within [brackets] in italics:

Jesus said, “I am the way, the life, the truth; and no man comes to the Father except by me.” He also said to His followers, “Do as I have done unto you.” What did Christ do to them? He loved, loved humanity with all His heart and soul and might, so much that He spoke only God’s Truth, “magnifying it and making it honorable” once again, lived it without flaw so we could see how to do the same, then HE died to free us of our “past” crimes against God the Father. Finally, Christ was resurrected to prove to us that our Father will do the same for us IF we accept Christ, have His faith, and obey God.

Of earth’s population, a purported 85% claim Christianity; what a great number it would seem that wear God’s armour. Whether that 85% is correct or it’s a lesser percentage doesn’t matter. It does not change the fact that, sadly, 66.6% are wearing flawed armour, leaving them vulnerable to Satan’s deadly arrows and the flaw excludes them from receiving God’s Seal of Authority, unless they “come out of her” as God directed. How can this be? By the doctrine of men, instead of God’s doctrine, as lived and taught by Christ and His Apostles and their proselytes and many of us today. What is flawed in their armour? It is the piece Truth that is critically lacking: revealed below.

The 33.4% of us who wear full armour must love the vulnerable as Christ loved us: enough to speak and live only God’s Truth, despite name calling and persecution for doing so, despite threats of death, despite any and all adversities. There is no greater demonstration of love by the sheep than that which they live and speak in absolute Truth without any regard for their own lives— just as Jesus did; no greater love than our Father’s and Christ’s.

GOD’S WHOLE ARMOUR: verses from Authorized King James Version Bible, the only translation by Divine instruction in order to fulfill a Revelation prophecy; be sure to open your Bibles to confirm the following: that you not follow blindly—

Ephesians 6:11-17Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; and your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

CONFIRMATIONS & EXPLANATIONS:

Genesis 15:1—After these things the word of the Lord came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.  —{IF we have faith [trust] that He is our Lord and His word is true and does apply to every human: thus obey unquestioningly and despite persecution}

Psalm 84:11-12— For the Lord God is a sun and shield: the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly. O Lord of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in thee.  —{Trust = Faith, belief, obedience}

Psalm 119:114— Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word. 

Psalm 119:142— Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy law is the TRUTH.  —{obedience is required in order be fully protected}

Psalm 119:151-152— Thou art near, O Lord; and all thy commandments are truth. Concerning thy testimonies, I have known of old that thou hast founded them forever. —{all of Psalm c.119 speaks of God’s Armor}

Psalm 144:1-2— Blessed be the Lord my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight: My goodness, and my fortress; my high tower, and my deliverer; my shield, and he in whom I trust; who subdueth my people under me. {our shield is gained by possessing the same depth of Faith as demonstrated by Jesus, even in the face of death}

Proverbs 16:6— By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the Lord men depart from evil.

Proverbs 30:5-6— Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

Isaiah 26:2-3— Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation [people] which keepeth [obey] the truth may enter in. Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

Matthew 3:2— And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.  —{cease disobeying the Law of Truth, for truth is a part of the whole armor: in missing just one piece of the whole armour, the person is not protected nor is he or she sealed for redemption}

Matthew 18:3— And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

John 14:27— Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

John 17:17— Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

Romans 2:20— An instructor of the foolish, a teacher of babes, which hast the form of knowledge and of the truth in the law.

Romans 3:22-23— Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; 

Romans 10:17— So then faith cometh by hearing [understanding], and hearing [understanding] by the word of God.

Romans 13:12-14— The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof.

II Corinthians 6:7— By the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left.  

I Thessalonians 5:8-9— But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ

Hebrews 4:12— For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart

Summary:
TRUTH— God’s Law (Doctrine): Twelve Commandments and defining Judgments (Statutes of Life, Law of Liberty, Law of Truth, Law of Righteousness) Exodus c.20

BREASTPLATE— Faith in and of Jesus by a heart filled with Love

FEET SHOD— Internal Peace as given by the Holy Spirit

SHIELD— Belief is Trust in God’s righteousness, therefore obey despite criticism

HELMET— Hope of Salvation through Christ

SWORD— Word of God in its entirety

Luke 11:28— But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear [understand] the word of God, and keep [obey] it.

It is obvious that God’s Twelve Precepts are that piece of armour called Truth. Man’s commandments, unfortunately, differ from God’s: specifically the great whore having deleted the Second Statute, deleting most of the Fourth and moving it to Third position; then, in order to maintain a total of Ten, she divided the Tenth Precept to make two separate laws about not coveting.

Alas, her harlot daughters do the same and worse. After all, they teach that we are “dead to the law,” no longer have to struggle to obey it. Having said that, it behooves one to wonder why the great whore went to such lengths to even include ten laws, much less change them. Ah, because Satan placed her a queen on his throne and is determined to assume God’s heavenly throne. In order to make that even remotely feasible, he had to create a counterfeit of Christ’s church, then fill it with “smooth words” the people love to hear, carefully lacing Jesus speaking lies: to get unaware masses under his leadership. He truly believes he can attain God’s heavenly throne by numbers.

By obeying only God’s Commandments will a believer bear God’s Seal, which is also Christ’s, then become fully armoured to withstand the horrors of these end of days; to stand against Satan’s torment and temptations that, in his desperate rage, are being flung at us 24/7 without rest. God’s Statutes were set in stone and cited in Exodus c.20 and Deuteronomy c.5. Read them carefully, that you not miss the crucial points.

Twelve Commandments? Indeed. For you see, Jesus came teaching nothing new; albeit, the great whore and her harlot daughters claim that He gave two new Commandments to replace God’s Ten. That is odd. Remember, Jesus declared, even the wicked love— selectively, of course— so, there must be a critical, defining point to the Royal Law, something easily overlooked by the masses focused on only the man in their pulpits.

Jesus did say, “Love God with all your heart and soul and might; and love your neighbor as yourself.” He wasn’t the first to utter these two Royal Laws. No. True, the people likely had not heard those words in centuries, so to them in Christ’s time the words seemed new. God stated them first in the Old Testament— harlots’ first lie by omission— and, as Jesus taught, one must first love in order to obey the Ten: “upon these two hinge all the Law.” To “hinge upon” means to “depend upon”— harlots’ second lie by omission. Obedience “depends upon” love with all your heart and soul and might. Half measures are not acceptable to God or to Christ.

Without unwavering love, no one can ever hope to obey God’s Statutes of Life. Hmm? Jesus said, “Be ye perfect and holy as the Father in heaven is perfect and holy.” How many times have we heard that we are “human and can’t help sinning? That’s why we needed Jesus to cover our sins.” Hello! He covered only our “past” sins and will cover henceforth only those sins of which we are unaware until we understand. Jesus made it clear: obedience is achieved only in accordance with the depth of our love for God and Christ: a love far away and above all those whom we love, more than they and this life.

“Would you obey the laws of man and perish; or obey the laws of God and live?”

PUT ON YE THE FULL ARMOUR OF GOD, saith the Lord!

——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. * * * * *

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?”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Extra Oil Update: Waves of Anger & Crime

Prophecy’s Extra Oil Update: Waves of Anger & Crime

©copyright 2009 Bonita M Quesinberry

 

 

A few weeks ago, TSaS pointed out the emotions involved in the world’s economic collapse, warning about the phase of anger among the jobless; anger which would quickly become rage. And, in that short time we have seen news reports already reflecting this rage as it escalates into crimes of desperation.

 

As God’s prophecy warned of these end days, time— or, events as it were— advances more rapidly than even God’s prophets could imagine, time filled with people behaving as they had never before even considered. In order to keep up with Biblical signs, Christ’s sheep are urged to not only watch the clouds but also local and world news reports. Many Christians avoid the latter because “it’s depressing and I don’t want to hear all the doom and gloom and horror.” We ask you, “how can you recognize all the signs, in order to be prepared, by burying your head in the sand?” To do that is to be left behind.

 

In just the last two weeks, both Washington and Oregon have reported astounding robberies. In one, a man walked into a convenience store and robbed the clerk at gunpoint. What made this case exceedingly unusual was two points: 1) he had his nine-year old daughter with him, who watched in horror; and, 2) he had absolutely no criminal record. When caught, it was learned the man had been out of work for almost eight months and desperate to care for his daughter; who was returned safely to her mother.

 

In a second case, a man entered a bank and demanded all of the teller’s money. Again, the man had been out of work for a long time, with nothing on the horizon; desperate to take care of his family; and, like the man above, he had absolutely no criminal record. Similar cases occurred in Oregon during this same two weeks, robberies being committed even by women; in fact, such events are happening across this nation and around the globe.

 

Anger and desperation are escalating at an astounding rate, “such as the world has never seen.” Even suicides will be commonplace and, quickly, Christ’s sheep and God’s prophets will bear the brunt of attacks. All these events are on a metaphoric hinge that will open the door to Christ and His host of angels, entering our world to take up His small flocks; for neither the Father nor Jesus will allow us to suffer long: it is written. However, other signs occurred during the last two weeks.

 

Revelation tells us that the first to be destroyed, just before Christ enters our door, is the Great Whore, Papal Rome; for she is the one who abused and contaminated Christ’s church and spread the abuse about through her global harlot daughters. The recent massive earthquake in central Italy resulted in devastation and deaths of her goats. While this did not impact Rome’s Vatican, this quake represents a warning to her in the form of an indirect “hit too close to home”— a warning God said she would ignore— another will rush in without warning and tear her down to the ground.

 

When we see the above happen, expect violent attacks against the sheep and prophets: ordered by the Pope throughout the world and through every apostate denomination. As this is being written, God is separating the sheep from Satan’s goats; the wheat from the weeds: see this all around you, even within your own families and among your friends.

 

There also was the eruption of Mt. Redoubt in Canada, which has continued to erupt with the same force as Washington’s Mt. St. Helens back in the 1980’s; the latter rumbling and spewing ash for the last several years along with Mt. Hood and Mt. Rainier in the Cascade chain. Volcanoes all over the world are rumbling, some experiencing thousands of quakes per day, if not exploding. These are signs of just how close Christ is to our planet; meaning that earth is reacting to His unlimited, extreme power as He nears, and so are man and creatures reacting— though quite negatively.

 

In the last two weeks, new reports have aired about earth’s contaminated waters: seas, oceans, rivers, lakes, and even wells. The pollution is so bad that one scientist stated, “It’s as though earth’s water ways have ‘turned to the blood of all marine life who are dying’ in huge numbers.” Additionally, earth’s overall temperature has risen more than ever in history: “the sun scorches men.”

 

The first six plagues are now at their worst. All we await is the seventh plague; which comes behind Jesus, in His wake as it were, as He crosses our skies taking up His small flocks. Those who expect this pouring out of the seventh, and by far most deadly, vial before Christ arrives is sorely unprepared, having no extra oil for their lamps: these are left behind, lying “dead from one end of earth to the other end.”

 

Look at this update as doom and gloom and be fearful— “for the fearful shall not enter the gates of heaven”— or, GET EXCITED because you understand this means our Saviour is so close that even “earth is trembling, reeling to and fro” from the immense power of His nearness. Time is about to expire. Suffer for Jesus only a little longer, for He has promised that in this day He “comes quickly.”

 

Even I must remind myself of this, as I am under considerable, mind-boggling attack; so much so that, “if it were possible,” I would succumb to the enemy for just a few moments peaceful rest. Praise the Lord, it is not possible! Look to God and Christ and the sheep for reassurance and strength. TSaS will be here for all of you for as long as possible.

Peace in Prophecy

Peace in Prophecy

©copyright 2006 Bonita M Quesinberry, R.C.

3.5-pages

A common theological teaching today about peace on this earth has been erroneously tied to prophecies of these end 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; at which time they claim Christ will return to defeat this monster. Indeed, peace is spoken of Biblically but not as various Christian sects are teaching it. All verses hereinbelow are taken from the AKJV Bible and paraphrased for comprehension.

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 again 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 those who are hot for those 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 is made new. Jesus made it clear: 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 to 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 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 would portend that the temple destroyed after Him (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; as 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 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.

 

We are living the years of Revelation 22:11-12, “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, 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.

From Adversities to Blessings

©copyright 2006 Bonita M Quesinberry, R.C.

brief excerpt of Truth Gathering, Vol. II (not yet available)

 

AKJV-Ecclesiastes 7:13-14 ~~ paraphrased for comprehension~~ “Consider the work of God, who has established adversity to balance, which is to measure, your righteousness; so that, in the end, man will find nothing greater than God.”

No doubt Christians suffer adversity, at least until their true colors are revealed. Are they proven white as snow or are they found with Christ’s blood on their hands? True believers will suffer adversity throughout their lives. The tests, of course, begin small and, in time, the intensity increases. A test can be as simple as a problem with a coworker or  boss or  spouse or child, or a test can be as great as the death of a loved one or our own life threatened by another or health issues, such as diseases man considers deadly.

Just because we “say” we believe in God and believe in Jesus and love them both . . . well, anyone can say the words but only our behaviour validates or invalidates what we say. Adversity in our lives will validate or invalidate our claim of belief. Action. It takes action on our part. To believe that we don’t have to do anything to be saved, except to believe Jesus is the Son of God, is the greatest lie among Satan’s deadly arsenal. Anyone who hangs onto that lie is marked for slaughter.

Nehemiah 13:2 reminds us of God having brought curses upon Israel, due to their disobedience and defilement of both His Law and His temple. Bear in mind, the only Law with which God is concerned is that which He wrote with His own finger upon stone tablets. After Israel repented, God then turned their afflictions into blessings. There are numerous citations in the Old Testament of God giving blessings following adversities.

Acts 7:9-10 speaks of Joseph having been sold into Egypt’s slavery by his own brothers who envied him. God delivered Joseph from this undeserved adversity by bestowing the blessing of wisdom upon Joseph, which caused Egypt’s Pharaoh to find favor with him. This is an example of adversity that proves to serve the greater good.

II Timothy 3:1,10-12, 14-17 informs that all who live godly in Christ shall suffer afflictions and persecutions; however, the blessing in this type of adversity is that it makes the afflicted one wise about salvation and faith, this latter as demonstrated by Jesus in every way, including His crucifixion.

II Timothy 4:5 urges that we endure afflictions, and rightly so when referring back to Ecclesiastes 7:13-14; for afflictions are the scale by which God determines our level of righteousness. Is it equal to God’s righteousness? Is it equal to Christ’s righteousness? Will we stand through the adversity in a righteous manner, that is to give good for evil, or will we succumb by giving evil for evil?

Jesus informed us, “Be as perfect as the Father in heaven is perfect.” We literally are expected to become “more righteous than the Pharisees.” And, we are consistently tested until we reach God’s level of righteousness; after which we can be presented as a chaste bride to our chaste Groom.

Paul noted in II Corinthians 12:7, these tribulations also are considered thorns meant to keep us humble, in short having come to understand that there is nothing and no one greater than God; where as, having received great gifts of the Spirit might cause one to become arrogant: a sinful attitude of determining self as more special to God than, say, the next person, when no one person is more special than another, and of presenting an attitude of being more knowledgeable than another.

While the latter might be true in many cases, especially if the person is teaching others who do not yet know those things, it is a sin to think of self as more knowledgeable in that the knowledge did not come from self; therefore, it would be akin to setting up self as God: another “weightier matter” of the sin of idolatry. We are nothing and know nothing, save and except the Holy Spirit gives us ALL wisdom and knowledge of God; thus, in all respects the wisdom and knowledge is God’s, making us as nothing more than a vehicle by which He delivers His Truths. The glory is God’s and only God’s.

Reasons for Adversity: the Bible states that we as Christians are “tried in earth’s furnace” until God can see Himself in us. Adversities and afflictions in our lives are the fire of earth’s furnace. Much like raw silver is refined by fire in order to remove waste material, thus revealing the beauty of silver in its purity, so we are refined by fire to remove sin in our lives to reveal the purity of God in us. Accepting as well as enduring those flames then assures us an eternal place in God’s perfect kingdom. Let us look at the reasons for adversity and afflictions of whatsoever nature:

1. To balance the righteous. Adversity reminds Christ’s chosen that, prior to accepting salvation, we were no different than all the wicked in the world. Adversity caused by others also teaches us what behaviours God “hates with a perfect [justified] hate,” that we also come to abhor those sinful ways, making certain we do not do those things again in the remainder of our lifetime. Finally, the evil in this world highlights its opposite, Love, therefore giving us clarity about what is love and how it should NOT act and/or speak.

The recent adversity of their Amish children being murdered in their classroom gave the world an opportunity to witness how love should act and speak: these deaths, then, were for the greater good of the Christian world. However, there also is a personal lesson for the Amish to learn, for they still defy a specific precept in God’s Law.

2. To correct disobedience. A previous lesson found Jesus stating, “You have not chosen me, I have chosen you.” Therefore, as one chosen, we come to Christ riddled with sin and knowing only the basics of His Father’s Doctrine; therefore, while we repent of that which we already know, there remains the weightier matters of God’s Law, of which Jesus spoke but very few Christian leaders have been teaching it.

If we sin unknowingly, then adversity is sent to correct and teach; for we must be presented to the Groom as a chaste virgin when He returns to claim His bride. Otherwise, we would be as the virgins who did not have enough oil for their lamps and were left behind. In other words, our growth into perfection remained incomplete; and, it would remain that way by the choices we make, for in all things we still have the power of choice. So, we either continue to grow by learning and applying what we learn, or we stagnate to ultimately perish.

3. To reveal a greater purpose; as was the case with Joseph and the Amish. Joseph’s adversity was having been sold into slavery for no reason, other than his brothers’ sin of envy/coveting; the greater purpose was to prevent famine in the future, which would have adversely affected his immediate family as well as all of Egypt. Therefore, what might appear as adversity to us, such as losing a home or job, might in fact be occurring for God’s greater purpose: His way of putting us where He needs us to be at any given time. The event of 9/11 should have been a wakeup call for every weak Christian.

Christ’s true sheep see beyond adversity, rather than focusing on adversity. To focus on adversity is to wallow in misery, play the oh-woe-is-me game in the midst of a pity party where a bowl provides pity pills in abundance; but, to see beyond adversity is to know and understand that blessings are waiting on the other side: so, true sheep focus on the expected blessings and this in itself gives them the strength to get through each event; and, they become even stronger with each fire they pass through.

4. To strengthen an anointed ministry. Jesus remained strong in His Father during His short ministry, despite constant persecution and false accusations. Why did He remain strong? Father had told Him to expect to be called a blasphemer, to expect to be accused of doing the Devil’s work, to expect to be labeled a false prophet. So, when persecutions and false accusations began, Christ only grew stronger in those attacks; for they merely confirmed He was doing exactly what His Father wanted Him to do and it was playing out exactly as He had been told it would.

Christ’s executioners unwittingly confirmed that He spoke only His Father’s Truth, and they confirmed to the world that He was, indeed, the Son of God. And, when they hung Him on a cross, He was by then strong enough to endure the death of His body, because He knew His Father would resurrect Him from the dead. After all, everything Father had told Him had proven to be absolute Truth, so there was no reason for Him to doubt.

This is the true test of faith, extreme faith, the spiritual gift of faith. While all Christians are given a “measure of faith,” it takes the “gift of faith” to die for anyone. We who have a measure learn the depths of faith from they who have the spiritual gift of faith; Jesus being the first to have been anointed with this gift: so, we learn from Him and, later, Christ’s Apostles. We learn and grow and exercise our faith until it becomes the gift, or we give up and fall away. John instructed in Revelation that we must take on “the faith OF Christ,” that extreme faith motivating us to die for Christ (see “Faith Times Seven”).

Therefore, when Christ gives us a ministry on His behalf, He already has told us to expect to be treated just as He was treated and that, in the end, some Truth Speakers will die for Him; but, we are assured of the first resurrection, so we have no fear of false accusations, of being labeled blasphemers and false prophets, and no fear of what man can do to our bodies. We know these vile acts validate God’s Seal upon our forehead and a curse upon those who falsely accuse us. Thus, we bless them instead of cursing them. God does the latter, for He said, “It is to your good, and to them a curse.”

5. To instill humility. Paul was the one who pointed this out to us and described the adversities he suffered as a “thorn in my side.” Paul was not one of the twelve Apostles; he was, in fact, chosen as one of the seven ministers to replace Stephen after he was stoned to death. As we all know, Paul was a Pharisee and devote in his religion therefore approving persecution of Christians, who at the time seemed to him to be heretics.

Saul’s absolute devotion was why Christ chose Saul-called-Paul to the Gentile ministry; and, by this selection, Jesus bestowed greater gifts upon Paul than even the Apostles had received. Paul’s unlimited knowledge of God’s Laws and Ordinances as well as those great spiritual gifts easily could have caused Paul to become very arrogant when teaching the Gentiles, who knew absolutely nothing except their own pagan backgrounds.

As a persecutor, Paul was wholly undeserving; thus, Christ told him, “My grace is sufficient for you.” We are no different than Paul. In fact, as former pagans, we are even less deserving; at least Paul believed in God from the beginning; therefore, when we are selected because of some specific knowledge we already have, then are given spiritual gifts to enhance that knowledge for God, it is necessary to have thorns in our side as reminders of where we came from and who really has the power: GOD! In short, there is no one greater than God.

6. To strengthen endurance for perilous times. The more professed Christians endure, the stronger they become each time they pass out of the flames. Or, they turn away from God to avoid the flames; therefore, adversity serves as a garden hoe removing weeds from God’s field of wheat, critically so in this last church age of Laodicea; for Christ’s harvest is about to occur. Those who refuse to endure represent goats who were masquerading as either shepherds or sheep. These will never enter the gates of heaven but, unbeknownst to them, they reveal Christ’s true sheep.

Look at how much Christ endured in order to show us God’s love and promise of redemption. If endurance means death of our flesh body, of which the true sheep have no fear, then we are assured of being in the first resurrection and forever living in paradise. We are living in the most perilous church age, the last one, and this means Satan is in a desperate, foot stomping, violent rage, his cruelty surpassing our wildest imagination. But, know this: our enemies, our attackers, appear to be Christians.

Lucifer knows his time is just about up and he is determined to take down as many sheep as he can. In many ways, he achieves this goal when he physically attacks a true sheep; for those masquerading as sheep then refuse to accept the true sheep’s warnings, more fearful of what Satan will do to them than they are of what God will do to them for having been traitors to God and His Son. Never once do they consider that they have just condemned themselves to being judged twice dead: death of both the body and spirit.

7. To serve as a testimony to God’s sovereignty and infinite power.  True sheep endure and rejoice in all adversities upon them, thus revealing to everyone not only God’s loving and giving character but also His infinite power to overcome evil in this world; whether it be physical or verbal attacks. After all, we could not endure, and certainly not in rejoicing, were it not for having the mind of Christ (see “The Mind of Christ”). As a result, Christ’s true sheep bear fruit of righteous behaviour, as evidenced by obedience to ALL of God’s Law, as well as bearing the fruit of finding and returning either lost sheep and/or those sheep still in the midst of Revelation’s great whore and her harlot daughters.

Don’t forget who these fallen women are: they are the antichrist but appear to be Christ’s church, wolves in sheep’s clothing, as it were. Be reminded of Paul’s warning, “Do not be surprised that Satan can manifest himself as an angel of Light and that his ministers can do the same.” Everything about the Bible relates to the church, not the world as a whole.

From Adversity to Blessings: What are the blessings on the other side of the flames through which we pass time and time again? They are: 

1) God’s existence and power is proven to us every time;

2) We become more righteous, this is to say more obedient to and have great love for His Law, until God can see Himself in us;

3) Our measure of faith begins to grow into a gift of faith;

4) Our strength in God’s Word grows in wisdom concerning salvation and faith until it becomes unshakable and can be taught in Truth, whereas in the beginning it was wobbly and easily questioned with each wayward wind;

5) While we may own nothing of value, we have everything we need of shelter and food and clothing and brethren;

6) We receive valuable gifts of the Spirit to use for God in our ministry on His behalf, these same giving us a good understanding of ALL things (see “God Says, ALL”); and,

7) We discover our particular mission and its ministry moves forth in strength, despite being surrounded by darkness and naysayers and false accusations and even Satan’s attacks against our body and/or by those who claim to be Christians.

It never ceases to amaze this pen for God: every time the Holy Spirit provides a lesson to be shared, the rudiments of it always end up equaling God’s perfect number: seven reasons for adversity and seven blessings for passing through all those painful fires. Just imagine if they were real flames, such as when Daniel and his cohorts were cast into the king’s great oven! Yet, because of their absolute faith in the God they served, they emerged from that oven unscathed and so can we.

There also are thorns in this pen’s side, and justifiably so; and, God has increased my strength through each adversity, even the attacks against my body (see “Blessings in Disguise”) or my financial status (see “One Amazing Day”); and, like every Truth Speaker, I am frequently accused, either in writing or face-to-face, of being a blasphemer and false prophet and doing the Devil’s work: this is where the unshakable part comes in. How kind of them to validate God’s Seal upon my forehead. Even better, though, God always gives me the capacity to see a bit of humor in each battle Satan has waged against me, reducing me to laughter: health to the marrow of my bones.

 

The point of this lesson: do not focus on the adversity that you may be in the midst of in any given moment, else you will wallow in self-pity and die; focus instead on the blessings to come, focus with expectation and assurance that there will be blessings waiting when you step from that particular fire. By focusing forward and expecting those miracles, we actually come out of the fire much quicker and not nearly as burned as we might have been.

 

As God said, “I put before you life and death; choose life.” To put this in context with adversity, some adversities might be what man calls deadly diseases and the doctors may have told you that you are dying. God’s opinion does not always agree with man’s. So, in this case, look forward by choosing life and claiming life despite all odds. We might die anyway, but as long as we choose life it will be according to God’s timetable instead of man’s.

 

“Consider the work of God, who has established adversity to balance, which is to measure, your righteousness; so that, in the end, man will find nothing greater than God.”

God’s Early and Latter Rains

          God's Early and Latter Rains                     angelfallsdove.jpg

 ©copyright 2003 Bonita M Quesinberry, R.C.  

"Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman [farmer] waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain." (James 5:7)  

QUESTION: James 5:7 says to be patient until the coming of the Lord, that there would need to be first the early and latter rains.  What are those rains, and is the latter something signifying Christ’s return? 

God has consistently described salvation and redemption throughout the Bible by way of metaphors, or parables as it were, akin to farming, but even more so during Christ's 3-/12 year's ministry and throughout the New Testament. In order to lend clarity to James' statement, farming protocol needs to be understood before being applied to spiritual protocol thus to prophecy, to which James does imply by referencing Christ's return.  

Farming is a progression of preparing the soil, planting or SOWING SEEDS, then shortly thereafter the first rains come in spring causing those seeds to sprout and, hopefully, grow into healthy food bearing plants. Naturally, during the act of sowing, seeds fall and/or are blown everywhere: onto good fertile soil, by the wayside where birds eat the seeds, stony places where the seeds cannot achieve deep roots in order to survive and thrive during the dry summer heat. And, some drop among thorns' tough roots, where the young spouts might be chocked out by weeds.

Thorns are impervious to draught and weeds thrive on better plants. The early rains cease and the drying heat of summer arrives, during which only the hardiest and deepest-rooted plants in rich soil will survive. However, there will be weaker plants in that same fertile soil, those threatened by blood-sucking weeds growing around them. Yet, the weak ones have one last opportunity to benefit from LATTER RAINS due a short while before HARVEST TIME~~ IF they are not too weak when the garden is cleared of weeds. Thus, we are looking at a tangible period of time spanning eight months, or 240 days, out of each year.  

As will be discovered herein, God's spiritual period of time will span over 2000 years before harvesting His children. It is for this reason that James told the people of his time, as well as all generations following thereafter, to be patient. As Paul stated, "I would not have you ignorant, for a day to the Lord is 1000 years and 1000 years as a day. Consider His patience as your salvation."

This passage adds clues to determining earth's life-span pre-set for 6000 years, which is about to expire. Said expiration points to Christ' return any day and any hour now. Nevertheless, this farming process, for our Father's purpose, is the tangible of human life, those things we can see and touch and which keep the flesh body alive for its fixed term. These tangibles symbolize the spiritual life, those things we cannot see and touch but which can generate eternal life and that might be felt emotionally: if a person has been chosen to follow Jesus. Or, they can spawn eternal death.  

Regardless, for all the tangible life-sustaining things we might have, a first death by any cause or act of another is imminent; with the exception of the 144,000 elect who will be redeemed while still living. All others are resurrected from their graves and taken up with the elect. Sadly, without a life-sustaining spiritual behaviour and heart, one has only to look forward to becoming twice dead.

Therefore, it behooves everyone to understand James' metaphor suggesting events and requirements we must meet in preparation for Christ's return, to which return James alludes by reference. This can be achieved only with Yeshua's Word and wearing His full armour. First, we identify who are the locations where seeds fall and who is the farmer SOWING SEEDS and what are the seeds; then we will determine the spiritual growing season leading ultimately to HARVEST TIME: this is to say, when Christ returns to take us up to meet Him in the air, thereafter escorting us to the "safe haven of heaven." 

(Matthew 13:4-8,19-30; Luke 8:5-8,11-15) "And when [the farmer] sowed, some seeds fell by the wayside, and the fowls came and devoured them up: some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth: and when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no [deep] root, they withered away. And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up and choked them: but other [seeds] fell into good [fertile] ground and brought forth fruit: some an hundred fold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold. 

"Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower. The seed is the Word of God. When any one heareth the word of the kingdom and understandeth [obey] it not, then cometh the wicked one and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the wayside. "But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word and anon [immediately] with joy receiveth it; yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended [stumbles]. 

"He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful. 

"But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word and understandeth [obeys] it; which also beareth fruit and bringeth forth: some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. 

"The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares [weeds] also. So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, 'Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? From whence then hath it tares?' He said unto them, 'An enemy hath done this.' The servants said unto him, 'Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?' 

"But he said, 'Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, 'Gather ye together first the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn." (Matthew 13:37-43,49-50,52)

"He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; the field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; the enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend and them which do iniquity; and shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear [obey]. 

"So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth and sever the wicked from among the just, and shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Therefore every scribe [writer] which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder [responsible], which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old [teaches from both the Old and New Testaments]." 

It should be evident that the SEED is the WORD OF GOD; the sower is JESUS CHRIST who has planted His Father’s doctrine in the hearts of Christ’s children, the wheat. The wheat also represents sprouted fruit growing in the midst of Satan’s children, the weeds whose massive yet shallow roots threaten to choke the life out of the wheat by a flood of false doctrines. (Revelation 12:13-17; reference to the 1260 years Satan spends in deceiving the world with a perverted Word of God, the same 1260 years in which God’s two witnesses are nourished in obscurity in order to maintain His truths until the 1260 years expired, at which time Yeshua’s Bible would once again bring His Truths to light.)

Therefore, SOWING SEED is represented by CHRIST’S 3-1/2 years MINISTRY from 27AD to 31AD. The APOSTOLIC MINISTRY, which is the Ephesus church era (Rev. 2:1-7), represents the nourishing EARLY RAIN from 31AD until the death of the last Apostle, about 100AD.

Then began SUMMER’S DRY SPELL ultimately revealing the hardiest and deepest-rooted plants of all seeds planted: those who did hear the truth and held fast to it, even when it meant certain death at another’s hand. It is they who kept God’s truths from dying altogether until time to boldly preach it once again. The dryness of summer, or absence of rain, REFLECTS a LACK of any living witnesses to Christ, the Apostles and disciples who knew full well our Father’s doctrine. They both lived and taught only the Father’s doctrine together with faith in and of Jesus.

The summer also included the great whore’s spreading of a perverted doctrine among Christ’s sheep. This period of time also revealed believers not having access to the Bible (two witnesses of Rev. 11:2-4, teaching in obscurity, sackcloth, between 538AD to 1798AD or 1260 years) from which the common people might have gained Ishi’s full truth for themselves instead of partial truths and many lies learned from pulpits. It was, indeed, a dry summer encompassing the next three church ages of Smyrna, Pergamos, and Thyatira. The summer months, or growing season, extended from 31AD to 1798AD.

At last, the strengthening LATTER RAIN came in the form of discovering God’s true doctrines beginning in 1798AD, the Sardis church era: made possible only by King James having the Bible translated and made available to all people beginning in 1611 AD. By 1844AD, Philadelphia’s church age, God’s True Doctrine was raining around the globe without ceasing. In the midst of the latter rain began also humanity’s trial. Would the latter rain revive weakened wheat so clogged by the weeds’ perverted roots feeding off them? Or, would they hear Elohim’s truth yet remain fixed in denominational false teachings rendering them twice dead?

When the latter rain began, it definitely pointed to the even nearer return of Christ, but not as soon as first thought back in 1843. The latter rain, as well as humanity’s trial, would last until 1991AD. During those 193 years people all over the world were hearing the Father’s true doctrine for the first time, causing each to make a conscious or even unconscious choice: choose to live forever or choose a second death. As each made either a choice to obey God’s tenets or remain obedient to denominational teachings, the Holy Spirit simultaneously was symbolically sealing him or her accordingly: with either the mark of the beast or with the seal of the One True Living God (Rev. 7:1-3).

Since the seals of authority are symbolic, due to being spiritual as opposed to tangible, the seal a person received or receives is noted only by their behaviour. The very idea that the seals will be “seen” in the tangible form of either a tattoo, or computer chip beneath the skin or some other corporeal manner, is absolutely ludicrous as well as denies that spiritual and tangible are not one in the same.

How then are people’s spiritual seals identified? They either observe ALL ten of God’s precepts, amidst which His seal of authority sits; OR, they observe none of Yeshua’s statutes, being blatantly wicked; OR, they obey commandments as taught by men, therefore filthy. Either of the latter two circumstances reveals the mark of the beast.

To determine what is the mark (sign, seal, token) of the beast, one only has to look at the seal of the Living God. Lucifer’s seal will be a counterfeit of God’s, much like a counterfeit dollar bill looks and even feels like the real thing upon first glance but it buys only a ticket to prison. After all, it is Satan’s goal to be accepted by humanity as God, therefore he must resemble God in all ways in order to deceive people into believing that they are following the One True God.

 Yet, what constitutes a legal seal of authority? Where there is a spiritual, there also will be a tangible similitude (likeness) bearing the same requirements in order to be considered a valid seal. Everything in heaven is spiritual (things not seen, not tangible, but rather felt and acted out by way of human behavior) and everything on earth typifies the spiritual in tangible models (things seen in physical, touchable forms).  

Therefore, all legal seals of authority are either a tangible object used to mark legal documents as valid and enforceable OR of a spiritual nature denoted by specific human behavior or behaviors. A valid tangible or spiritual seal of authority must: 1) NAME the author of whatsoever laws any person or entity intends to enforce upon others; 2) It must establish the DOMAIN of peoples over which those laws will be enforced; 3) It must state the REASON why the author has such power of enforcement; and, 4) the tangible or spiritual seal itself must reflect a DISTINCTIVE MARK, a peculiarity unlike any other recognized seals of authority when impressed upon official documents (tangible) or upon any person (spiritual, thus behavior).  

Look among God’s Statutes of Life (Exodus c.20) and determine if His seal is therein. Does it meet all four criteria in order to be designated a legal seal of authority? It unequivocally does: see Exodus 20:8-11. Nevertheless, if Yeshua’s seal is found, then it should be clear what is Beelzebub’s counterfeit mark: similar yet different. And, in making that determination, it is then time to make a conscious choice. 

Thus, the latter rain ceased in 1991 and preparations for harvest began earth’s last church era, Laodicea (Rev. 3:14-22), an age Revelation 22:11 describes as, “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.” The message, however, still goes out to the lukewarm and cold.

In this Laodicea age Isaiah 3:11 reassures, “Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings. Woe unto the wicked! It shall be ill with him: for the reward of his hands shall be given him.” Note the subtle references to both spiritual behavior (righteous fruit of doings) and to worldly behavior (reward of his hands).

Jesus stated that He would cut these Laodicea years short for the sake of His elect, for it is a time when the wicked and filthy wax worse and multitudes are offended by the truth of Yeshua’s Word. Frequently today people are heard saying in response to God’s Truths, “Well, that’s not my god! My god would never do that. My god says this or that no longer matters.” Therefore, it is this last age in which Christ returns “quickly” for the harvest of His children. During no other church age did He say that His return would be “quickly.” And, scripture is exceedingly clear about what will happen on that day.

From the PREPARING of the SOIL to SOWING SEEDS, then EARLY RAIN to LATTER RAIN, through today has expired over 2006 years. That may well put earth six years beyond the 6000 mark. Yet, God is never late and He certainly will not operate within earth’s Sabbath years, the seventh and final thousand of the intended 7000 years: equivalent to 7-week days.

There are a few in Christ’s genealogy for whom age was not given; thus, earth’s living years might be a few shy of 6000. Either way, time is exceedingly short. We must watch the clouds while “obeying the commandments of God and possessing the testimony of Jesus Christ” (Exodus 20:3-17; Deut. 5:7-14,16-21; Rev. 12:17; 14:12; 22:14).

The final Jewish harvest festival is conducted on or about 10 November, and symbolizes virgins given to the priesthood: in this case, a virgin church presented to Christ the groom. Late October or early November, then, would be the time of Christ’s arrival in the clouds: the day and hour unknown to any man. As for the year? As bad as things have become in this world and actually experiencing the church persecuting the church, it could be as early as this year of 2006 or even 2007. This earth can no longer sustain life, not even its own; thus, there cannot be many more years left.

“Watch,” advises the Spirit, “watch now and through HARVEST TIME and continually until you see your Lord and Saviour upon a brilliant white cloud with a host of angels going before Him. For He is even at the door.”

 And, the Lord laments, “Oh, if only it were in their heart to fear me and to obey all my commandments always, so it might be well with them and with their children forever.” (Deuteronomy 5:29)
