Prophetic Convergence

Never have we needed the Scriptures more. Never has the Church of Jesus Christ been so ignorant of the Scriptures…

Prophetic Convergence

David A. Rice, D.Div.

The four horsemen of the Apocalypse are riding. The white horse is here, the red horse is arriving, and the other two are in sight. It is Friday, March 18, 2022, and all of the signs Jesus commanded us to watch for are visible, solid and established. The war of Ezekiel thirty-eight and nine is clearly on the horizon. The King of the North is marching south towards Jerusalem, the Ukraine is just an inconvenient stop along the way. The prophets of old would have given anything to see that which we are observing in real time.

Those of God’s people who have chosen blindness, see nothing. Those with eyes to see and ears to hear are overwhelmed. Perhaps the most terrifying thing the sighted see is the confusion and terror in the eyes of those who have determined not to see. To hear Christians speak of how electing Republicans, and bringing Trump back to power will save America… Awful ignorance; the ignorance of those committed to finding proof texts to support vain imaginations.

Never have we needed the Scriptures more. Never has the Church of Jesus Christ been so ignorant of the Scriptures that sit unread, unlearned, and untaught; the Scriptures that would inform, warn, direct, guide and comfort.

No more do we read the Scriptures in context, praying that God will teach us what He wants us to know. Rather, Christians imagine a God who thinks as they would have him think and acts like they would have him act. Having determined that which they want to believe, they go to books written about the Scriptures, searching desperately for the odd verse or paragraph that, ripped from context and standing alone, seems to support their imaginary religion and describe their made up god…

If a Christian is frightened by the idea of the tribulation, he searches diligently for verses that speak of rescue and escape… It matters not what the subject matter of the Book or the chapter, it speaks of rescue and if I add that verse to the other verses I found in that magic devotional book, I can come up with enough happy verses about rescue to convince myself that the rapture must be pretrib. Please God, don’t let anybody quote Matthew 24 in my presence… If I am even aware of my sin, weakness and failure, I will look for a church that teaches Eternal Security, and I will gladly accept their collection of proof texts without question. If I cannot lose my salvation, I need not be bothered by or alter my lifestyle; after all, I walked the aisle, shook the preacher’s hand and got dunked in the baptistry… I am in like flint… Besides, this is the New Testament and God is no longer concerned about sexual perversion!

So, having collected enough assorted Bible verses to support my happy doctrine, I look out at the world and find that it is collapsing around me. I am amazed that my happy god has not explained this to me… Didn’t Jesus die to make me happy in Babylon? I thought that if I was a Christian and followed all the steps that preacher listed in that book my friend gave me that God would be forced to buy me a mansion on the hilltop. Aren’t I supposed to be living my best life now? Doesn’t God care how much money I sent to that guy on TV? I mean really!

Obviously, the answer is to bring back Donald Trump!!!

Let us forget all those silly peripheral doctrines they told us set our denomination apart and made us better than all those other Christians who didn’t believe the same silly peripheral doctrines that made the founding fathers of our denomination stomp out of one church in a huff, take half the members and go start a new and improved denomination… OUR denomination! Let us go back to the Word of God, forgetting all those silly devotional books and their “365 Happy Verses for a Happy Year”, and asking God Almighty, by his Holy Spirit, to teach us the truth and open our eyes to the world around us and help us to see the whole truth. There is a great peace that descends on one’s soul when God fills it with his Truth!

We sit on the eve of destruction. Our reward is in Heaven. I could care less what your church believes, Jesus said, “He who endures to the end shall be saved!” Take that and run with it! Don’t go to bed without reading a chapter or two or three, in context and asking God to open your eyes to the Truth.

Today’s suggested reading (It is relevant) is:

2 Chronicles 7 the whole chapter

Jeremiah 14 and 15, both chapters

Lamentations 2, the whole chapter.

Tomorrow, continue in the same books and then ask God to lead you to another book to read.

Be a Daniel. Read Daniel and see Daniel’s suffering and his courage… Go beyond the Lion’s Den!

In Times Like These

Pray for pastors who will stand up to the Devil and preach the whole Word of God.

In Times Like These

Everybody is lying, the Covid Plandemic is dying, World War Three is looming, news stories are written and crafted to evoke terror in the minds of men, right is wrong, and wrong is right; my list could go on for two or three pages, but you know the world is messed up. Satan is winning, even as God himself told us he would. Yes, the Devil is cast into the Lake of Fire, but that is at least a thousand years from now. Meanwhile, there is a short time, at the end of the world where the Devil wins on this earth.

It is time to wake up from the dreams of the heretics. In Revelation, speaking of the Devil, God tells us that “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.” Speaking of you and I, the End Time Saints, Jesus said, “they will deliver you up to tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for my name’s sake.”

In that same passage in Matthew 24 Jesus says that at this time in history “many will fall away and betray one another and hate one another. And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold.” He goes on to say “But the one who endures to the end will be saved.” I don’t know about you, but to me, enduring does not sound like a lot of fun.

Jesus goes on to say, “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then will appear in heaven the sign of the Son of Man, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he will send out his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.”

While Jesus clearly says that the Elect will be gathered to him (raptured) “Immediately after the tribulation”, People still live in a dreamworld that, denying plain Scripture and the Words of Jesus himself, insist that we will be gathered before the Tribulation.

Speaking of this time, Revelation tells us that twenty five percent of the people on earth will die. Later, a third of the survivors are killed. Jesus tells us that “if those days had not been cut short, no human being would be saved.” He then continues, “But for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short.” These are tough times. The prognosis is that it will continue to get worse until Jesus comes. Meanwhile, half of the world’s population will die.

“But he who endures to the end shall be saved…”

Still, preachers preach of a victorious Church, a church that, through politics and war, subdues the world, makes the Noahide Laws the law of the earth and prepares the Kingdom of God on earth so that Jesus can return and rule the Kingdom they have created for him…

Never mind that the Bible teaches the persecution and suffering of the Saints…

If you believe the heresy preached everywhere, let me ask you why Paul did not simply rebuke the Devil, walk out of prison, quote the right verses and make God buy him a mansion on a hilltop?

God has promised to go through it with you, not to take you out of it.

You need to repent. You need to establish a very real and strong relationship with God. You must be in Christ and Christ must be in you. You must be certain that you are where God wants you to be, doing what God wants you to do. You must be prepared to face and endure unimaginable atrocities, and not lose your faith.

UNDERSTAND THIS: Not all suffering is of the Devil.

Peter tells us: Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. 15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer or a thief or an evildoer or as a meddler. 16 Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in that name. For it is time for judgment to begin at the household of God; and if it begins with us, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God? And

“If the righteous is scarcely saved,

    what will become of the ungodly and the sinner?”

Therefore let those who suffer according to God’s will entrust their souls to a faithful Creator while doing good.

Pray for pastors who will stand up to the Devil and preach the whole Word of God. Pray that they will prepare the sheep for the slaughter…

ALLAH’S JESUS

Hell stared out through human eyes. Satan, the ancient enemy, now incarnate in the body of a man called Jesus. It was the ultimate coup; in the battle that had raged since before time, he was the victor.

ALLAH’S JESUS

DAVID A. RICE

JERUSALEM

Hell stared out through human eyes. Satan, the ancient enemy, now incarnate in the body of a man called Jesus. It was the ultimate coup; in the battle that had raged since before time, he was the victor.

He sat at a dressing table in the Royal Waiting Room. Like the surrounding temple, the room was magnificent. The trappings of royalty surrounded him, gold and silver, jewels, priceless rugs, and paintings worth millions of Euros abounded in overstuffed abandon.

He was no Shepherd born in a stable; he would have none of that.

As he stared at the human face in the mirror, he thought how the open wound above his right eye made him look like that Shepherd from Galilee. Although not scarred beyond recognition, he too would have a visible scar. It pleased him to think that this was a more handsome body than the Nazarene had used. This body was tall and solidly built. Light skinned with the features of an Arab prince. Only that open sore kept the visage from being perfect. The wound proved the resurrection; it was enough.

This book is out of date and I no longer believe the story…

That said, it is a good story… You can buy it on Amazon or click the link and read the original manuscript for free…

The Enigma of the Conundrum

The Gates of Hell shall not prevail against the Church, but the Beast is permitted to wage war against the saints and to conquer them….

David A. Rice D.Div.

Matthew 16: 17 And Jesus answered him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven. 18 And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock[a] I will build my church, and the gates of hell[b] shall not prevail against it. 19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed[c] in heaven.”

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.

Bible

The Gates of Hell shall not prevail against the Church, but the Beast is permitted to wage war against the saints and to conquer them…. Did you get that?

That conundrum is not without answer.

  • When Noah got off the ark, God said, “Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. And as I gave you the green plants, I give you everything.” (Genesis 9:3)
  • When the Law came, God said, “The pig, because it parts the hoof and is cloven-footed but does not chew the cud, is unclean to you.” (Leviticus 11:7)
  • Then, in the New Testament, speaking of food, Scripture tells us that “Nothing is unclean in itself.” (Romans 14:14) God does not change but covenants do… Under the Noahic Covenant, eating pork was okay. Under the Law, eating pork was prohibited. Under Grace, eating pork is okay as long as your conscience is not violated…

Again, covenants change. Much of what you feel free to do as a Christian, would have been okay, even for Jews, before the Law was given. Under the Law, they were forbidden to Jews (and gentiles living in Israel), but not to anyone else. Many of those things are still prohibited to unsaved Jews, and also to gentiles who choose (of their own volition) to place themselves under the Law, thereby severing themselves from Christ and falling from grace.

The same is true of the enigma with which we started.  In the Church Age, under the New Covenant, the gates of Hell cannot prevail against the Church. However, the Age of the Gentiles and the New Covenant end on the day that the Tribulation starts. Those who are saved, remain saved but salvation reverts to the Jews and All Israel is saved. (Read Romans 11 ten times and call me tomorrow). In the Tribulation, the Beast is given permission to wage war against the saints and to conquer them.

The end of the New Covenant, the Age of the Gentiles and the Covenant of Grace are ended… And that, is the difference.

ENDURANCE

The next in the Sunday School series speaking to the headlines and the prophecies they are fulfilling.

Endurance and the hope of Heaven…

The next in the Sunday School series speaking to the headlines and the prophecies they are fulfilling. This week we speak of the Life Insurance company Aegon and their reported third quarter payout of $111 million in 2021 compared to $31 million in the same quarter of 2020… more than a 350% increase in a single year.

We speak of and define “Occultianity” and speak to the Christ Centered life which stands opposed to the witchcraft now so prevalent in the church.

Join us as we seek to understand current events in the light of Scripture…

Johns Hopkins Researchers: Lockdowns Had Little Impact on COVID Deaths

“Lockdowns should be rejected out of hand as a pandemic policy instrument,” Johns Hopkins

Johns Hopkins Researchers: Lockdowns Had Little Impact on COVID Deaths…

MY NOTE: No one in their right mind could have ever imagined that they would.

Johns Hopkins University researchers say lockdowns in the U.S. and Europe had little to no impact in reducing COVID-19 deaths.According to a new analysis of dozens of scientific studies, the lockdowns during the early phase of the pandemic in 2020 reduced COVID-19 mortality by about 0.2%.”We find no evidence that lockdowns, school closures, border closures and limiting gatherings have had a noticeable effect on COVID-19 mortality,” the researchers wrote.

The lockdowns did have “devastating effects” on the economy, however, and contributed to numerous social ills, the paper noted.

“They have contributed to reducing economic activity, raising unemployment, reducing schooling, causing political unrest, contributing to domestic violence and undermining liberal democracy,” the researchers said.

“Such a standard benefit-cost calculation leads to a strong conclusion: Lockdowns should be rejected out of hand as a pandemic policy instrument,” the paper concluded.
