FLAT EARTH EISEGESIS

Let us first, speak to “Eisegesis.” Eisegesis, simply enough, is using the Bible to prove what you already believe or what you want to believe.

Let us start with an extremely exaggerated example:

Let us say that I am a devoted, loving and Christian parent. My beloved child, seemingly out of nowhere, commits suicide. I do not want to believe that my child would go to Hell. I simply must believe that suicide is good and that God approves. I go to my Bible and find that at least seven people in the Bible killed themselves. More than that, among them were Prophets, Kings and Disciples… I carefully compile my list:

  1. [Abimelech] called hastily unto the young man his armour-bearer, and said unto him, Draw thy sword, and slay me, that men say not of me, A woman slew him. And his young man thrust him through, and he died (Judges 9:54).
  1. And Samson said, Let me die with the Philistines. And he bowed with all his might; and the house fell…upon all the people that were therein (Judges 16:30).
  1. Saul took a sword and fell on it (1 Sam. 31:4).
  1. When [Saul’s] armour-bearer saw that Saul was dead, he fell likewise upon his sword, and died (1 Sam 31:5).
  1. When Ahithophel saw that his counsel was not followed, he…got him home to his house, to his city, and put his house in order, and hanged himself, and died (2 Sam. 17:23).
  1. It came to pass, when Zimri saw that the city was taken, that he went into the palace of the king’s house, and burnt the king’s house over him with fire, and died (1 Kings 16:18).
  1. [Judas] cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself (Matt. 27:5).

I am now certain that God approves of suicide. My beloved child is secure in God…. And, while I am still hurting, I decide that God would certainly want me to commit suicide so that I may be with my child…

That is eisegesis!

Let us go on to other things:

Let us say that, in my mind, I see God as a kindly Father. I read a verse that says that I can never be plucked from his hand. I like that and I start a Bible Study. While there are many verses on the subject, they are just about evenly divided between those that support Once Saved, Always Saved and those that speak to fear, trembling, being plucked from the vine and falling from grace.

I compile my lists… 20 verses supporting Eternal Security and 20 verses that speak to falling from Grace.

  • God is Good! I know that and so all of the verses that make God look like a good guy must be literal… Clearly, these verses mean what they say.
  • On the other hand, all of those verses that make God look like a bad guy, must be misquotes, mistranslations or simply false…
  • We all know, after all, that God, is a good guy!

Based on what I now “know,” I write a book and form a new denomination, built on the firm knowledge that, no matter what those mean and ugly verses might say, God would never cast away one of his children!

But what if I saw God as a mean and ugly judge? I would certainly take those same verses and declare that all of the verses that supported my view of God as a stern and awful Judge, were to be taken literally, while all of those verses that spoke of a kind and fatherly God who would show grace and mercy on his children, cannot possibly mean what they say…

Based on what I now “know,” I would certainly write a book and start a new denomination fixed on terror and the firm belief that the slightest infraction of the Law will bring down judgment, death and Hell.

FLAT EARTH

Please note: There is not one single verse, in all of Scripture, that informs us of the shape of the earth… Not even one. Not one verse says that it is flat. Not one verse says that it is a globe… Zero, Zilch, Nada.

On Flat Earth, I must start with an idea, a thought or a belief that comes from a source outside of Scripture… A book, a Facebook Post, a YouTube video or, in the beginning at least, the fertile imagination of one individual. Somehow, I come to believe that the earth must be flat. (For the vast majority of Modern “Flatearthers,” it came through Facebook or YouTube.)

Based on my belief that the earth must be flat, I follow the YouTube Guru or the Facebook Wizard to the Scriptures. There, he / she points out a handful of idioms, allegories and a little poetic language that, while none of it says the earth is flat, might seem to support the theory I so desperately want to believe. The fact that nearby verses speak to the skin on Job’s teeth and the pillars on which the foundations of the earth are firmly fixed be damned… Those things are obviously allegory but anything that backs up what I want to believe must, absolutely must be taken literally!

Now, armed with less than six passages which, while they do not say that the earth is flat, do seem to support what I want to believe, I make a video, go on Facebook, as an On-fire Evangelist for the Flat Earth Gospel! I am so very proud of my new found knowledge and this New Doctrine, that I leave Jesus in order to preach Flat Earth… After all, what is salvation if you can believe something that nobody else knows about yet?

And then come the Party-Poopers… They challenge your science and your theology, making you look like an idiot. If you have an Associate’s Degree in Dental Technology, certainly you can prove the scientists of the world wrong! If that doesn’t work, you can simply declare that all science is evil and scientists are of the Devil… That fixes it!

This is where Flatearthers divide into Clergy and Laity…

  • If you are a Dental Tech, a File Clerk at a College or some other kind of “Expert”, you become Clergy…
  • You write your own stuff,
  • you make your own YouTube channel and
  • start your own page on Facebook…

If no one follows you, not to worry:

  • you find the page of a non Flatearther and begin to preach your newfound religion in comments under their posts…
  • Do that often enough, and you will soon find yourself with your own following.

(This route is not suggested for those with less than a sixth-grade education.)

If you are not so educated as the YouTube Gurus or the Facebook Wizards, do not despair… There are thousands of Wizards and Gurus out there with posts to read and videos to watch… These poor people are in desperate need of followers… which is your purpose for existing…

If you do not know where to find your very own Wizard or Guru, follow the comments under my Facebook Posts… That is where they live…

PASSED DUE FOR THE “WIDOW MAKER”

“Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow if death, I will fear no evil”

“I am amazed that he is still alive!” Such were the words of the surgeon who had just catheterized my heart. I don’t remember that. I was awake and responding but too drugged up to remember later. They are words that my wife will never forget.

What followed was a trip to my third hospital in as many days, surgery that would stop my heart for over an hour, routing my blood through a Heart-Lung machine instead, and being sent home to recover at the end of a ten-day vacation I would wish on no one, ever.

Health-Park Medical Center is “State of the Art.” It looks like a five-star hotel with a lobby including a four-story atrium grander than that of any Naples Hotel. The food is good, the Doctors, nurses and staff, highly trained, skilled, and kind beyond imagination. People travel here, from around the world, to combine “Elective Surgery” with a tropical vacation… That I had the best care available, and that in a beautiful place, does not mean that I would recommend “Dying to Get There.”

The three main arteries to my heart had completely occluded. Over a period of years, my body had grown its own bypasses… new arteries to bypass the clogged ones that no one could find… damage invisible to EKGs and stress tests…. Presenting, in  cardiac distress, my first EKGs came back normal; only a stress test showed a possible “Small blockage of a small artery….” Machines lying, as they have for the more than ten years I have complained of shortness of breath and a racing heart. Three main arteries completely blocked and the machine showed a “Possible” small blockage of a minor artery.

Sent to a second hospital, they were to catheterize my heart, with the understanding that the blocked artery “might be too small to stent.” What an eyeopener to awake and find that, in fact, I was days or minutes from a fatal heart attack… Yet, I had known it to be true for many years. I had been faced with the negative results of a hundred tests and been sent home from emergency rooms, diagnosed with “Gastric Distress” more times than I can count… Never give up! It was, the hand of God that saved my life. It was God who opened the eyes of my surgeons to the distress of my heart.

Faced with the diagnosis of a ninety-plus percent blockage of the three main arteries of life, I received the standard tips to say no to surgery, read a book, change my diet and save my own life. Sorry, flat on your back with a prognosis of imminent, sure, and certain death, is not the time to “read a book and change your diet”

What did I learn from all this? That the Psalmist knew his God, and that the phrase, “Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow if death, I will fear no evil” is not simply the work of a dead poet but a present and living reality for the child of God… You really can face death with no fear and peace in your heart… Really!

CHRISTIANITY VERSUS AMERICANISM

Let us contrast, to start, two strong, foundational statements:

1. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
2. The person who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; the person who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And whoever doesn’t take up his cross and follow Me is not worthy of Me. Anyone finding his life will lose it, and anyone losing his life because of Me will find it.

When I was in High School, the State of Florida, mandated a course called, “Americanism Versus Communism.” In that class, we learned of wonderful American heroes like, Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, and the like and about the terrible heroes of communism, the likes of Lenin, Stalin, Mao and Obama. We diligently studied the reasons that the American system of Government works and communism never will.

The course must have been written by the boys down at the Lodge… It was a winner.

What I would like to do, in this article, is to give you a different kind of course… a course that should be mandated by the Board of Education of the Kingdom of Heaven, for every Kingdom Citizen, living as a foreigner and an alien in the United States of America. A course in Christianity Vs. Americanism, or perhaps, we should call it, Kingdom Principles Vs. Americanism.

I am not saying that Americanism is not better for the people than communism. Please bear with me.

Let us contrast the two systems, the Kingdom of God and the United States of America. Most older American Christians have been taught, by their Pastors, as well as the school system, that the United States and the Kingdom of God are synonymous… If you are a Christian, you are a good American and you cannot be a good American unless you at least live like a Christian. Lets look at that.

Let us contrast, to start, two strong, foundational statements:

  1. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
  2. The person who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; the person who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And whoever doesn’t take up his cross and follow Me is not worthy of Me. Anyone finding his life will lose it, and anyone losing his life because of Me will find it.

Somehow, the wise men in the great American Seminaries, decided, and taught for more than two hundred years, that those two statements could be reconciled. You could believe that your Creator had given you a right to life but you could not be worthy of Jesus if you found your life and if you did not die to yourself and lose your life (and rights) for his sake.  So, your Creator Gave you a right to life and your God took it away. That will make you scratch your head.

The full statement in the Declaration of Independence is: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…” Please take the time to look up the doctrine of the Deists. This is a core and absolute belief in Deism, The Creator created, then abandoned the world, having established “Governments” to run everything…

Paul frequently speaks of himself as a slave to Jesus Christ but the Declaration of Independence says that your Creator has given you an “unalienable right” to Liberty. Scripture says that you must give up everything, deny yourself and follow Christ. The Declaration of Independence says that your Creator has given you an immutable, unchangeable, permanent and forever right to seek happiness. According to the wisdom of the American Church, there is no problem here. Perhaps you are smarter than the American Church?

The constant message in America and the message that got Donald Trump elected is that every American has a right to a good job, good pay, and all the “stuff” he could ever desire. Scripture says:

All who are under the yoke as slaves must regard their own masters to be worthy of all respect, so that God’s name and His teaching will not be blasphemed. Those who have believing masters should not be disrespectful to them because they are brothers, but should serve them better, since those who benefit from their service are believers and dearly loved.

False Doctrine and Human Greed

Teach and encourage these things. If anyone teaches other doctrine and does not agree with the sound teaching of our Lord Jesus Christ and with the teaching that promotes godliness, he is conceited, understanding nothing, but has a sick interest in disputes and arguments over words. From these come envy, quarreling, slander, evil suspicions, and constant disagreement among people whose minds are depraved and deprived of the truth, who imagine that godliness is a way to material gain. But godliness with contentment is a great gain.

For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with these.

But those who want to be rich fall into temptation, a trap, and many foolish and harmful desires, which plunge people into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, and by craving it, some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pains. (1 Timothy 6:1-10)

Try preaching that to your favorite Trump supporter…

Many, in the American Church, have woken up to the fact that those wonderful statements in the Declaration of Independence are, in reality, the doctrines of demons and the principles of Babylon. Unfortunately, most do not have a clue.

It was Satan who offered Jesus the riches of this world’s kingdoms, not Jesus who offered those things to his followers. Satan rebelled against God because he wanted to be free. The Devil’s sales pitch has always been to offer Freedom and riches and knowledge… Always… from the very beginning.

Let us go on to another major difference. God, in Genesis, separated the people. It was God who separated men by tribes and tongues and nations. This was, outside of the cross of Jesus Christ, the greatest blow ever dealt to Satan and the Kingdom of this world. God had said:

“If they have begun to do this as one people all having the same language, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. Come, let Us go down there and confuse their language so that they will not understand one another’s speech.”

So from there the Lord scattered them over the face of the whole earth, and they stopped building the city. Therefore its name is called Babel for there the Lord confused the language of the whole earth, and from there the Lord scattered them over the face of the whole earth. (Genesis 11)

Did you get that? “nothing they (fallen man under Lucifer) plan to do will be impossible for them!” That is why God separated people into groups. Satan wanted to defeat God and establish himself as the god of this world, forever. He still does. The United States was the “Guinea Pig” the trial… the Babylonian forerunner to the New World Order. What America has been, on a single continent, the New World Order / Kingdom of the Beast will be on a global scale. That is the Devil’s plan… having reunited the world, he will take on God at Armageddon and win, becoming the god of this world for all of eternity. That is his plan and he has just enough ego and pride to believe his own stuff…

What is the cry of America? “Give me your poor; your huddled masses…” The Masonic motto (and it predates the Masons) is “Ordo Ab Chao” or “Order out of Chaos.” What “chaos”? The Chaos created by God at Babylon. Look at the mottoes on your money…

  • “E Pluribus Unum” (Out of Many, One).
  • “Annuit cœptis” (He [?] has favored our undertakings)
  • “Novus ordo seclorum” (New World Order)
  • “IN GOD WE TRUST” (Placed next to the Egyptian pyramid and the eye of Osiris, a pagan god.)

“E Pluribus Unum”, speaks to undoing the divisions established, by God, at Babel.  “Annuit cœptis”, simply says that Lucifer has favored our undertakings.  “Novus Ordo Seclorum” has been officially translated as “New Order of the Ages.” That is, simply put, One World Government or the “New World Order.”  Placing the motto, “IN GOD WE TRUST” next to the symbols of a pagan god, gives us insight that the Masonic controlled, Evangelical Churches in America were determined that we would never see.

From Wikipedia: According to Richard S. Patterson and Richardson Dougall, Annuit coeptis (meaning “favor our undertakings”) and the other motto on the reverse of the Great Seal, Novus ordo seclorum (meaning “new order of the ages”) can both be traced to lines by the Roman poet Virgil. Annuit cœptis comes from the Aeneid, book IX, line 625, which reads, Iuppiter omnipotens, audacibus adnue coeptis. It is a prayer by Ascanius, the son of the hero of the story, Aeneas, which translates to, “Jupiter [Satan] Almighty, favour [my] bold undertakings”, just before slaying an enemy warrior, Remulus. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Annuit_c%C5%93ptis)

PLEASE! Do your homework! Do not take my word for these things… LOOK IT UP!

ἐκκλησία

These churches do not, cannot and will not accommodate the Ecclesia and the Remnant is the Ecclesia…

Dr. Michael Lake, Chancellor of Biblical Life Seminary and author of the bestselling book, The Shinar Directive, says that if all of those in the Remnant decided to go to church on the same day, there would not be enough church buildings to accommodate them.(1) That assessment sends a clear message that needs to be heard across the land…

The Remnant has been disenfranchised by the Babylonian Church…

One of the cruelest tricks ever played on the English-speaking church was perpetrated by King James and the Archbishop of the Church of England. One of the specific rules, handed down to the translators of the King James Bible by the Archbishop, under the signature of the King, was that they must translate the word ἐκκλησία, (Ecclesia) using the word “Church.” Ecclesia, means “called out to” and is properly translated as “The ones who have been called out” or perhaps, “Congregation.”  Church, in the English of 1611, was defined as “A building where religious services are held” It holds that as its primary definition to this day. The amount of confusion and damage caused by that translation is immeasurable.

…on this rock I will build My ἐκκλησία, and the forces of Hades will not overpower it. (Matthew 16:18)

The Protestant, Evangelical, Charismatic and Pentecostal churches in America have all been corrupted by the Babylonian system and, in particular, the Masonic Religion. You do not have to look far to see church buildings designed to look like Greek Temples… all according to strict Masonic Architectural principles. Almost every Christian Seminary has buildings designed, paid for and named after Master Masons. To find a church in America, larger than 250 members, that does not have at least one Master Mason on the church board would be almost impossible. If you do not understand the significance of that, search for the word “Mason” on this blog and read the articles that come up.

These churches do not, cannot and will not accommodate the Ecclesia and the Remnant is the Ecclesia…

Those who are in the Remnant have been called out of Babylon. With very few exceptions across America and no exceptions in many cities and towns, the American churches are firmly rooted and grounded in Babylon. When a member of the Remnant shows up, he fits like a square peg in a round hole. Everything he says and does goes contrary to the Babylonian system. It is not long until he upsets the proverbial apple cart and the other church members and even the Pastor begin to make it clear that he is not welcome.

If a Pastor hears the call and begins to exit Babylon, his sermons quickly begin to upset the congregation and the Mason(s) on the church board soon begin to look for a new pastor… At the very least, it produces an immediate and negative effect on both attendance and offerings. For this reason, most pastors will never leave Babylon… preferring to risk the plagues of Babylon to the instant loss of finances and prestige…

An Ecclesia, in the sense of a congregation of the Elect or the Remnant, will never be able to afford a church building or a hired Pastor. With no Masons in the Congregation, such finances are, for the most part, unobtainable. With no Masonic Brother on the board, banks are extremely reticent to loan money to a congregation. Thus, Ecclesia, or Congregations of the Remnant, find themselves meeting in houses and parks and fields and forests… The Pastors among the Remnant are mostly unpaid and often untrained… but they know their God.

I would ask those in the Remnant, and you know who you are, to try to start or find house churches with the Remnant in your neighborhood… and they are there. You meet by praying and going where God tells you to go and talking to whom God tells you to speak… This is organized, as in China, by divine appointments.

I would encourage Pastors, called to leave Babylon, to do so. This will, most likely, involve resigning your church, taking a secular job and meeting with the remnant in your house or a public place… The money and the 501(c) 3 are out the window… Wave Bye-Bye! Nothing ties a church and a pastor to Babylon like a Tax-Exemption.

If you are uncertain what I mean by Babylon… Search for Babylon on this blog and read all of the articles that come up.

Dr. Lake has said that trying to wake up the church is like “slapping dead cows.” I agree… There is a Remnant… an ecclesia of like-minded souls who have been called out of Babylon and into the Kingdom of God. If you have read this far, you just might be one of us… Pray that, above and beyond Facebook, God places you with a congregation of the called-out ones… Real, warm bodies, Brothers and Sisters who you can love and who will love you back. Forget “Church.” Find and join a Congregation…

45 Come out from among her, My people!
Save your lives, each of you,
from the Lord’s burning anger.
46 May you not become cowardly and fearful
when the report is proclaimed in the land,
for the report will come one year,
and then another the next year.
There will be violence in the land
with ruler against ruler. (Jeremiah 51:45, 46)

TRUMP AND THE TREATY THAT WILL MAKE HIM GOD…

What a deal! Everybody gets what they want. Israel expands its borders to unprecedented size and there is peace in Israel… The whole world is adopting American values, Freedom is in the air and religions, once the seat of great division and turmoil, are now uniting under Pope Francis…

Trump is a consummate businessman. Trump knows contracts and he knows how to leverage people and make them sign contracts; contracts that are often to their detriment. A treaty is nothing more than a glorified contract; a contract between nations. Trump will be a master Treaty Maker and nations will sign treaties that place their own nations at a disadvantage. Trump knows how to do that and all the powers of Hell stand by to give him whatever assistance he needs.

Let me start with a disclaimer. This is not a prophecy and I am not a prophet. There are ten thousand contingencies that could make my ideas here obsolete in a minute. This is my best guess, given at this moment and it is subject to change.

Some of you will argue that this goes against and contradicts many of the things that I have written in the past. I am in complete agreement with you. This is new and this is based, not on what I knew before but on what I knew before plus what I have learned since.

The fall of Babylon, described in Revelation 18, follows the seventh Bowl Judgment in Revelation 16. This is not at the beginning but at the end of the Tribulation. I have described, in other places, why I believe that the United States is the Babylon of Revelation. The video here, is the best description I have yet heard. I will not repeat my argument here.

I had, for some reason, been thinking that, as Babylon, America would fall at the beginning of the Tribulation. I now have reason to believe that it falls very near the end. The fact that it follows the seventh Bowl Judgment and that John was shown the fall by one of the angels holding the bowls makes that scenario quite logical.

If, as he has almost supernaturally overcome all the obstacles in his way so far, Trump again overcomes any challenges and is coronated on schedule, this argument stands. This argument depends on his assuming the throne… Should he not reach that day, this argument is null and void. Everything that I see, tells me that he will become President. Let us proceed with that assumption in mind.

IMAGINE:

Let us imagine that America does not die, per se, in order that the New World Order / Kingdom of the Beast can rise. Let us imagine instead, that America is the foundation and the seat of power for the New World Order and the Kingdom of the Beast.  Let us imagine that the “Spirit of America” is rebirthed under Trump’s leadership and that that system goes worldwide… Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness becomes the rallying cry of the Beast…

Let us say that this spirit of universal freedom and happiness overtakes the world and that, under one world government, seated in New York or Washington… the values of the New Atlantis become the values of most of the world… There will be pockets of resistance, of course and we will fight wars to enforce freedom and happiness around the world… Islam will be defeated and the remnant will retreat to desert caves…

Babylonian Christians… those who have mistaken America for the Kingdom of God and the light of Lucifer for the Glory of God, will cheer… God is winning and Trump has brought us freedom and money and success and he has killed all those awful Muslims! Praise God!

A cowed and battered Palestinian Authority will be ready to sign anything, and Donald will have the perfect treaty…

  • The Palestinians will get a limited State.
  • The Jews will get their Temple
  • The Vatican will get sovereignty over Jerusalem and enforce the peace with United Nations Troops.

What a deal! Everybody gets what they want. Israel expands its borders to unprecedented size and there is peace in Israel… The whole world is adopting American values, Freedom is in the air and religions, once the seat of great division and turmoil, are now uniting under Pope Francis… The Televangelists and the Babylonian Christians are thrilled out of their minds… Rick Warren is in Seventh Heaven and Kenneth Copeland is made a Bishop in the Church of Rome… Even the Muslims are coming onboard… Hindus and Buddhists are thrilled… Pagan religions, from the smallest to the largest are falling under the spell of Pope Francis and embracing Life. Liberty, the Pursuit of Happiness and Donald Trump! It is a wonderful world.

But peace comes with a price… a simple pledge and a tiny microchip… Starvation and death hits the Bible Believers hard.

For three and a half years the Jews work on their Temple. Donald Trump is spending an inordinate amount of time in Israel… He is Israel’s greatest friend and loudest cheerleader! The Priests are put in place and the daily sacrifice is resumed for the first time in two thousand years! Israel holds a ceremony and declares Donald Trump is the Messiah! And Christians… even the Babylonian variety, begin to rebel…

For three years or more, the cry has rung out around the world…

“DOCTRINE BE DAMNED… UNITY AT ANY COST!”

Suddenly, even the Babylonian Christians can no longer stomach the situation. There is a great revival… not so much of numbers but a return to holiness…

Pope Francis and The Donald are not amused. The fate that fell on Muslims in the early days, now falls on Christians.

Then comes the Temple Dedication. The Donald, now known in Israel as The Messiah, will preside…

Then comes the revelation of the Statue in a wing of the Temple and the Jews are appalled…

Then comes the “I am God” speech.

All Hell breaks loose…

Just imagine.

David…

 

 

WATCHMAN: HEAR GOD!

The true Watchman, goes to God, already armed with a firm and solid knowledge of the Word of God. With such an anchor in place, and with an open mind and a hungry heart, the Watchman admits, to God, that he knows nothing. He asks God to open his eyes and let him see, to open his ears and let him hear, and to open his mind and let him understand. There is a covenant between the Watchman and God; the Watchman receives supernatural insight but, with that insight comes responsibility. What God shows that Watchman often goes against common thought and long standing Dogma in the Church and sharing is difficult.

Ezekiel 33:“As for you, son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel. When you hear a word from My mouth, give them a warning from Me. If I say to the wicked, ‘Wicked one, you will surely die,’ but you do not speak out to warn him about his way, that wicked person will die for his iniquity, yet I will hold you responsible for his blood. But if you warn a wicked person to turn from his way and he doesn’t turn from it, he will die for his iniquity, but you will have saved your life.

What God shows the Watchman must be shared. The Watchman is often overwhelmed by what he sees. What he sees, speaks of doom and darkness, of sword and famine and death. Having asked and now having seen, the Watchman now fears… dreads sharing what he has seen. With the insight and understanding comes the threat of Blood Guilt… God says that if the Watchman does not share what he has seen and warn his fellow man, he is guilty of their death. And so, the watchman, in fear and trembling, shares what he has seen.

Would be Watchmen, with little or no knowledge of the Word of God, often seek “New Knowledge” in the strength of their own flesh. Finding something odd, they latch on to it, study it, think about it. Then, having convinced themselves that they have discovered something new, they go to God. “God,” they say, “I know this is true. Please help me prove it.” Armed with their “New Knowledge” and encouraged by a five minute, one way prayer, they go on Facebook and confuse the Church of Jesus Christ; unaware of the Blood Guilt they have incurred… They are encouraged at the number of disciples they rapidly gain, and so, they begin to search for more “New Knowledge.” From such nonsense come cults, and many are damned.

Many years ago, having sinned greatly and fallen spectacularly, I promised God that, if He would restore me, I would say whatever He told me to say, no matter what. Perhaps, if I had known what I would be required to share, I would not have made such a promise. I agonize over what God shows me. I share things in fear and trembling. A handful of people understand and accept the message. The clear majority of Christians, unable to argue with what God has shown me, reject it anyway and resort to name calling as a last defense against the truth…

I am very human and supremely fallible. Almost two years ago, God told me that Obama would be followed up by a right wing, strongman… an egomaniac who would lead the United States and the world to destruction. While I was digesting that, I read an article about Mitt Romney and the Mormon Prophecy… the “White Horse Prophecy.” It sounded a lot like what I had seen of the coming Right-Wing Leader. I mixed the two, in my mind and wrote several articles, in which I did not predict or prophecy, but in which, I strongly suggested that Mitt Romney might very well be our next President. I mixed what God showed me with what I saw in the flesh and it confused people. We got the Right-Wing Egomaniac” God showed me, but it wasn’t Romney. If I confused you, I apologize.

Sometimes, no, often I see what other people are saying and, if it seems reasonable, I pass it along. Other watchmen are also fallible. Sometimes what I pass along is true, other times not. We must all examine all things prayerfully and in the light of plain Scripture.

No watchman sees it all or knows it all. I stand in awe of the kind and amount of information that God is giving through some of his Watchmen, but the best of them do not see everything. It is as we carefully and prayerfully weigh, measure and compare the messages of many that a clear picture of the whole begins to take form. You and I must take that which God shows us and compare it with what others are saying. We must pray that God begin to put the puzzle together for all of us and that even the careless Christian begins to get the message. What is coming is not pleasant or happy or good. All of God’s watchmen are seeing pain and sword and hunger and death. We are all seeing different aspects of the coming Judgment of a Holy and Righteous God wreaked on an arrogant, proud and evil land. We are seeing the coming of Antichrist, the destruction of the United States and the New World Order that will rise, like a phoenix, out of the ashes… Not pleasant stuff…

Revelation 13:7 And he was permitted to wage war against the saints and to conquer them. He was also given authority over every tribe, people, language, and nation.

Heaven is my home and my hope is eternal. If I did not believe that, I would be thinking about suicide. You must get your mind off of this world. You must take up your cross and follow Jesus. You must make every effort, with mind, soul and spirit, to make Heaven your home. You must determine that whatever happens, you will cling to the cross and follow Jesus. If your hope is in this nation, your house, your home, your job… you are going to die a hopeless and meaningless death… disappointed beyond all measure. If you are clinging to the cross, following Jesus, if Heaven is your home, you will be able to hold firm to the end and you will receive a Crown of Righteousness on the other side.

Philippians 3:But everything that was a gain to me, I have considered to be a loss because of Christ. More than that, I also consider everything to be a loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. Because of Him I have suffered the loss of all things and consider them filth, so that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own from the law, but one that is through faith in Christ—the righteousness from God based on faith. 10 My goal is to know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, 11 assuming that I will somehow reach the resurrection from among the dead.

The answer is not in legalism or the law or following a bunch of rules… you will die a miserable failure if you try. The answer is found in a very real relationship with a living God. You are saved by Grace, you are free from the Law, you are in Christ and Christ is in you… the hope of Glory. Get to know Jesus… wrap yourself up in his arms and hold on tightly. This thing is personal. You do not succeed in marriage by memorizing the Marriage Handbook and closely following the rules. You succeed in marriage by loving and respecting your spouse and by getting to know them intimately. You are a part of the Bride of Christ. Get to know your spouse… love him and respect him… Therein lies the highway to Heaven…

Every time I write one of these posts, I think that it may be my last… If this is my last post, hang onto Jesus and meet me on the other side…

A TALE OF TWO KINGDOMS

There are only two Kingdoms. Those who try to live in both, at the same time, picking the rules they like from each kingdom and mixing them are schizophrenic, usually paranoid and suicidal creatures in the spiritual realm…

He has rescued us from the domain of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of the Son He loves. (Colossians 1:13)

There are two Kingdoms and only two Kingdoms in this world. If you are saved, you have been transferred from one Kingdom to the other. Tonight, we are going to talk about that…

There are only two Kingdoms. Those who try to live in both, at the same time, picking the rules they like from each kingdom and mixing them are schizophrenic, usually paranoid and suicidal creatures in the spiritual realm.

You have rejected Lucifer and submitted to Jesus. You have left Babylon and entered the Kingdom of God.

Your spirit is transferred immediately. You must move your mind, soul and body. Most Christians today, especially in the United States, have never moved out of Babylon. This is true because, as Americans, we were taught to believe that the United States and the Kingdom of God were synonymous, that, unlike all the other nations of the world, we had a Christian government, created and endorsed by God himself. In truth, there has only been one nation ever created by God, for Himself and distinct from the other kingdoms and that is Israel.

I want to present to you tonight, the idea that the United States was great because, for 200 years, the majority of her citizens were Christian. The Church and the Christian people kept an evil government in check. God, working in their behalf, restrained the evil that government had in its heart to accomplish.

Adam was the god of this world. He was given dominion over it all.

Genesis 1: 28 God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth, and subdue it. Rule the fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, and every creature that crawls on the earth.” 29 God also said, “Look, I have given you every seed-bearing plant on the surface of the entire earth and every tree whose fruit contains seed. This food will be for you, 30 for all the wildlife of the earth, for every bird of the sky, and for every creature that crawls on the earth—everything having the breath of life in it. I have given every green plant for food.” And it was so.

When Adam sinned, he lost dominion and that dominion was given to Satan.

Matthew 4: 8 Again, the Devil took Him to a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. 9 And he said to Him, “I will give You all these things if You will fall down and worship me.”

NOTE: Jesus did not contradict him or say that he did not have that right. Satan is the God of this world. All of the kingdoms of this earth, including the United States, are earthly kingdoms, under the power and authority of the Devil.

These kingdoms will be given to Jesus but that has not happened yet…

Revelation 11:15 The seventh angel blew his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven saying: The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Messiah, and He will reign forever and ever!

That will not happen until the seventh angel blows his trumpet…

There is a problem when Christians, who have been transferred out of the Kingdom of This World and into the Kingdom of God, do not move… keeping their mind, soul and body firmly attached to the Kingdom of This World.

We have believed a lie. It is a lie that has been passed down for generations. Your parents and grandparents believed it. Your Pastors and Sunday School teachers believed it… The Lie says that the United States of America is and has been a Christian nation.

The truth is that the United States is the chief nation among the Kingdoms of This World.

Jeremiah 50:23 How the hammer of the whole earth is cut down and smashed! What a horror Babylon has become among the nations!

That speaks of the destruction of the end times Babylon and calls it “The hammer of the Whole Earth!”

Congressman Ron Paul reported that according to government sources, the United States of America has some 900 military bases in 130 nations of the world… Does that sound like we might be, “The Hammer of the Whole Earth”?

Of the seven men commonly listed as the chief Founding Fathers of the United States, only one believed that Jesus Christ was God. Six were Deists. Deists were the predecessors of the atheistic evolutionists. They always spoke of “Providence” but never of Jesus Christ and almost never using the word God.

Providence, as the “god” of the Deists, was the Creator of all but he was impersonal and never interacted with men. This Providence created everything, including human government and then abandoned the world leaving governments in charge.

If you look at 18th century documents produced by Churches and Pastors, they, like us, spoke of God and of Jesus Christ. If you look at documents written by Deists, they spoke only of Providence… Look it up! The fact that our founding documents speak of providence and not of God is telling…

All of our Founding Fathers were members of secret societies. Jefferson and Franklin belonged to secret societies in America, England and France…

 There might be a Mason in this room. My Grandfather was a 33rd Degree Mason in the Scottish Rite and a “Lifetime Deacon” in his church.

Among his books was a well-worn copy of a book called “Morals and Dogma” by Albert Pike. Let me give you a quote from that book.

“Masonry, like all the religions, all Mysteries, Hermetiscism, and Alchemy, conceals its secrets from all except the Adepts and Sages, or the Elect, and uses false explanations and misinterpretations of its symbols to mislead those who deserve to be mislead; to conceal the Truth, which it calls Light, from them, and to draw them away from it. Truth is not for those who are unworthy or unable to receive it, or would pervert it. So God Himself incapacitates many men, by color-blindness, to distinguish colors, and leads the masses away from the highest Truth, giving them the power to attain only so much of it as it is profitable to them to know. Every age has had a religion suited to its capacity.

The Teachers, even of Christianity, are, in general, the most ignorant of the true meaning of that which they teach. There is no book of which so little is known as the Bible. To most who read it, it is as incomprehensible as the Sohar*.

So Masonry jealously conceals its secrets, and intentionally leads conceited interpreters astray.”  (Morals and Dogma Pages 104-105)

LIFE, LIBERTY AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS ARE THE BLESSINGS OF PROVIDENCE… The Bible speaks of taking up your cross, dying to self and following Jesus. This government was founded, not on the Bible but on Plato’s Republic, the Greek philosophers and a novel called “THE NEW ATLANTIS” by Sir Francis Bacon.

 Matthew 16: 24 Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow Me. 25 For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will find it. 26 What will it benefit a man if he gains the whole world yet loses his life? Or what will a man give in exchange for his life? 27 For the Son of Man is going to come with His angels in the glory of His Father, and then He will reward each according to what he has done.

 How does that compare to, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed”?

 The truth is that the government and those in power were corrupt and evil from the beginning… the fairy tales you learned in Sunday School notwithstanding. Godly governments do not slaughter Natives by the hundreds of thousands, steal their land, and lock them up on reservations built on the poorest land in the country. Godly nations would not send their Marines to Columbia South America, take away the entire northern section of their nation, form a new government of handpicked leaders and call that land Panama, just so that they could build, control and profit from a canal… There are ten thousand like examples, and the Church pretended that they were godly acts of a godly nation.

So, why then was the United States so blessed?

The truth is that for 200 years, the overwhelming majority of Americans were Christian. The influence of the Church and the intervention of God on their behalf kept an evil government in check. The church today is in total apostasy and has zero influence on the State. The apostasy has caused God to remove himself and the power that once restrained evil and brought blessing to the people.

Babylon is a word that describes the kingdoms of this world and all false religion, including apostate Christianity. The United States is the center of that power and the Hammer of the Whole Earth…

Revelation 18: Then I heard another voice from heaven:

Come out of her, My people,
so that you will not share in her sins
or receive any of her plagues.
For her sins are piled up to heaven,
and God has remembered her crimes.
Pay her back the way she also paid,
and double it according to her works.
In the cup in which she mixed,
mix a double portion for her.
As much as she glorified herself and lived luxuriously,
give her that much torment and grief,
for she says in her heart,
“I sit as a queen;
I am not a widow,
and I will never see grief.”
For this reason her plagues will come in one day—
death and grief and famine.
She will be burned up with fire,
because the Lord God who judges her is mighty.

 We need to take our hearts, soul, mind and body out of Babylon and move to the Kingdom of God:

We need to learn how the Kingdom of God works and just what it is that marks the ways of Babylon.

  • We need to stop seeking Life, Liberty and Happiness and begin to seek the cross of Jesus.
  • We need to stop thinking of our jobs as the source of our provision and turn to Jesus as the source of all blessing. (That does not mean quit your day job; it speaks of a deep spiritual awareness of the real source.)
  • We need to stop looking at the government as our protector and look to God.
  • We need to stop hoarding wealth and start giving like God gives…
  • We need to give up the idea that God is going to send a pagan prince to save an evil, arrogant and unrepentant land, giving it the opportunity to continue in sin…

Paul’s goal needs to become our goal: “My goal is to know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death…” (Philippians 3:10)

Your heart must be anchored, with God, in Heaven. Paul said, “If we have put our hope in Christ for this life only, we should be pitied more than anyone.” (1 Corinthians 15:19) That is more true today than ever.

We have no future here… none…
