Except the Lord Build the House
Isaiah 28:16 Therefore thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.
Psalm 46:10 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
Religionists of the earth are "making haste". They are scurrying about like so many ants trying to "save" a people, which have never been "lost" and hoping to prevent damnation of a people, who cannot possibly be damned. There is a "belief" problem involved! Those who lack perfect understanding rush about trying to "save" others. Spreading the "good news" of Jesus and his work is one thing, but trying to "save" men is quite another! Those who really believe and understand the immutable work of the Father and Jesus "shall not make haste". They can "be still and see the salvation of God"! All they have to do is read any obituary column in any newspaper to "behold the salvation of God". It occurs as fast as God "draws men up" at "Passover" time for FAMILY REUNION, Luke 15:15-32. See "Death Has No Sting". Death is the means by which the Father "redeems" and "ransoms" His children from this earth, the "pit of hell" for demons. Why is it so hard for men to understand Hosea 13:14?
Hosea 13:14 I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death: O death, I will be thy plagues; O grave, I will be thy destruction: repentance shall be hid from mine eyes.
Luke 20:37 Now that the dead are raised, even Moses shewed at the bush, when he calleth the Lord the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. 36 Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection. 38 For he is not a God of the dead, but of the living: for all live unto him.
The answer to the question is they DO NOT BELIEVE it! Men cannot understand, "Except the Lord build the house,they labour in vain that build it", Psalm 127:1. The text does not say "Except men build the house", men will be lost. Men think if they do not do something to "help"? ... the work of salvation will not be done and many men will be damned! That human conclusion is the problem and it shows man's arrogance and ignorance about "God's salvation" and about what "damnation" means. Much that men have done has "gotten in the way". Preachers moved by "knowledge of good and evil" became stooges and tools for devils helping them blindfold men and make them "twofold more the child of hell than themselves", Matthew 23:15. The Dragon has had a field day as "lord" over the earthly churches, Daniel 7:21-22; II Corinthians 11:13-15; Revelation 13:4-7. Jesus said there would be so many lying preachers and false prophets that if it were possible they would deceive the very elect and moreover, except those days be shortened no flesh would be saved"…. from deception! Matthew 24:11,22-24. Jesus' prophecy in this text is not about shamans, mullahs, imams and witch doctors. It refers to the hordes of Christian ministers all over the world, who are seen on TV and heard on the radio. All these denominations and "churches" men have built with "members" are being broken in pieces and destroyed "like a potter's vessel" as fast as they take their last breath! God's voice shakes their clay bodies to pieces! Upstairs God has to "undo" what preachers and churches have done! See "God's Prudent PLAN of SALVATION". God is shaking the heavens, the earth, the sea, and the dry land as well as all nations to assert His authority over truth and to put men on earth back in their place. See "A Whole Lot of Shaking". Men are blind and ignorant and all earthly religions are covered with gross darkness, Isaiah 60:2. God has been drawing all men in all nations home to Heaven at all times according to His "desire" and His good will to men as Father of ALL, Luke 2:10,14. The errors that men believe and teach on earth cannot stop nor hinder this process! Human doctrine in all the world religions is a mixture of some truth with lies, but on the whole it is a false witness against God's "daily sacrifice" and drawing work. It is "garbage" to our Father. Because men do not need to eat garbage our Father is shaking ALL world religions! ALL MEN from ALL NATIONS are immediately drawn to Heaven after death for "perfection". This has always been "what happens" to men! All doctrines in all religions, which teach otherwise, are LIES!
Those who believe God and have faith in His LOVE do not have to "wage warfare at their own charges", 1 Corinthians 9:7. Devils pretending to be God, Christ, and the Holy Ghost are very happy to "call" men and send them on a fool's errand to blind men with contemporary false doctrines that men are fed in churches. We hear the poison on radio and view the blindfolding on TV. Any doctrine that is different than what God revealed in "A Whole Lot of Shaking"… ALL NATIONS are "drawn" to Heaven according to HIS DESIRE, is errant and fails in truth. Doctrines, which attempt to damn most men of past generations, do blaspheme against those same persons who are now members of the Heavenly Hosts, Revelation 13:6-7. Some of those very persons may be your guardians and teachers. Insulting them cannot possibly benefit you. If you grieve them and they leave, you will be left to the mercy of devils on you and those on others around you.
What Men Can Do
Men may witness about the Word and works of Jesus
Men may witness about the Word and works of Jesus without making salvation conditional and consigning non-believing human beings to damnation. Sharp "conditional" words from Jesus were always intended for his demonic audience riding the men in the crowds, not for his human brothers and sisters! Jesus knew what he was doing, but you do not! This area is where human "interpreters" have made many mistakes! Eventually "ALL thy children shall be taught of the Lord" without human help, Isaiah 54:13. It shall be done "not by might and not by power but by my Spirit" upstairs at the Heavenly Altar, Zechariah 4:6. To witness about the birth, works, and death of Jesus on the cross, is to tell his words and his acts. He preached "two-edge" words (Hebrews 4:12) to two worlds and to two kingdoms in the same place. Any "witness" should be careful to rightly identify the target audience for each edge of those words. Words specifically sent to devils cannot be applied to men and Words God had Jesus speak for men cannot apply to previously non-condemned devils born on this earth. Because God has not taught men these things, devils sent them to "make haste" to fulfill what they perceive as a "great commitment" to spread the gospel to the world. This order specifically went to those men who followed Christ and heard them on that day. You cannot follow someone else's orders in any man's army! Men today have arrogantly presumed that those orders apply to them. God NEVER has sent all men and any man to speak for Him! Always He picks one among thousands and maybe two in a nation! Never has He ever ordained thousands and thousands of preachers! Deuteronomy 32:34-39. God sent one Moses to deliver Israel from Egypt and one Jesus to save the world! "Few" is the number to consider! However, devils "sent" most of these men as fake "savers" and gave them the doctrines that Father is now shaking to pieces! Because God has not taught men how to discern His two-edge Word, men have made gross mistakes by proffering their "opinions" and "interpretations" of scriptures for truth, Isaiah 29:9-14; Revelation 5:1-5. If men stick to telling the story of Jesus work and say his words exactly without adding their "spin" to them, they will fare better. God personally selects His students and PERSONALLY instructs them. He will not send you to a man for instruction, nor to a man's Bible school or theological seminary. "Whatsoever is right, I will give"!
Psalm 119:99 I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy testimonies are my meditation.100 I understand more than the ancients, because I keep thy precepts.102 I have not departed from thy judgments: for thou hast taught me.
Both "God and Christ come and sup" with their selected student in the privacy of his mind. There, God can reason with the student without distraction or competition from some preacher's demons. There He dismantles what men have daubed with untempered mortar in the student's mind and destroys it! Errors are replaced by light so bright that it shocks the consciences of men still in darkness. It is wise to notice that the student cannot make himself "chosen", only God can do this! Psalm 75:4-7.
Men may also comfort the children
Men may also comfort the children bound by Pharaoh's tough chains. There is a three-part comfort message that God designed to give men rest! Isaiah 28:12, 40:1-2. God specifically wants His children to know that (1) our "warfare is accomplished" by the work of His "champion", Jesus Christ, (2) our "iniquity is pardoned" and in reality WE ARE NOT CHARGED AT ALL for sin, (3) on earth we "receive double for all our sins" through whatever happens to us during our lifetime on earth. See"Promise or Robbery". You cannot give men rest and comfort except the way God commands us to do it. Speaking your own words and fighting sin to "make a difference" according to your perception of the right way to do things will not cut it with God, Isaiah 58:13-14. Men are very reluctant to comfort other men God's way. They cannot form their lips to tell men that our war with the devil has been won by Jesus and all men have to do is "wait on the Lord" to rise. They definitely REFUSE to tell men clearly that our sins were pardoned before we were born, because they want to fight sin-works by "their" preaching. To emphasize to men that God does not and never has charged human beings with sin goes against their grain. It is something to omit, not a thing to call to man's attention. Finally man's concept of justice is penalties and punishment or the threat of punishment for infractions against "laws". This, they feel, helps keep many men in line. They will not tell men, "what each man receives in this life is sufficient and even double for all our sins". God instructed us, the true comforters, to do this! God will give men rest when and if we tell them the whole truth and nothing but the whole truth with no omissions, dilutions, and strategic evasions. We are not wrestling human beings in this WAR. The enemy is not men. We are fighting slave-master demons on the bodies of men who control men in evil works, Matthew 12:43-45; Ephesians 6:12. He created the first two enemies, Lucifer and Babylon, and He knows "how" to defeat them! It is imperative that we fight them God's way, because He knows their nature and how to make them "weep and gnash their teeth". These bastards are extremely jealous and bitter about the treatment God has assigned to them when compared to our treatment. When you tell them of the "difference" in treatment that God gives men for the same works, it wrecks their minds, crushes their spirit, and devastates their pride. That is why you must say it God's way without diminishing or watering down a thing! YOU cannot "save" a man nor impart light to a man! That is strictly Father's work. He alone is our sunshine and rain! God alone has power to grant "understanding"! All we can do is "lead a horse to the water, but we cannot make him drink"! If you are employed by God, your job is to "witness about Jesus" and to "comfort men" with God's three-part comfort message!
If you cannot fight devils God's way, you will be ineffective and actually you will be "in the way". Ancient Israel attempted to war against their enemies without God's orders and approval, and they were soundly defeated. This is what happens when men fight sin and devils "their way"! You will be used by devils on your own body to set "roadblocks" and traps and hinder the ability of men you reach to hear the real truth when it appears. Worse yet, you will be perceived as a deceiver when those men you previously "convinced" discover the real truth and discard your errors. Lying and deceiving is not a credit for any man, no matter what his intentions are. Ifyou "want to help" the FAMILY, do it God's way!
When Men Build the House
No man can build the House of God. Solomon stated that in no uncertain terms.
KJV Isaiah 66:1 Thus saith the Lord, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest?
KJV 1Kings 8:27 But will God indeed dwell on the earth? behold, the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain thee; how much less this house that I have builded?
II Corinthians 3:16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
Obviously the dwelling place of the Most High Father is not a building of bricks and mortar crafted by artisans, architects, and masons. The "house" in which God rests is His sons and daughters collectively, namely YOU and all other "yous". All earthly man-made shrines, temples, mosques, churches, and grottos men revere as "holy places", God will burn very shortly when He burns the earth, Isaiah 24. Devils have men take any remnant or icon from the past that is associated with God's work or His human messengers, if they can find it, and build a temple around it and make it into an object of worship! This is a form of idolatry and a credit to demons running and ruining human worship! There is the "shroud of Turin", claims for "the holy grail", and claims for the bones of John, and relics from other "holy men" of the past. In Israel there are churches built on any "holy place" where they think the patriarchs might have done something great.Peter, James and John were rebuked by the Father for the thought of building temples to Moses and Elijah! Clearly this demonic activity given to bind and blind men borders on the ridiculous! In Israel the Jews and Moslems are fighting over these so-called "holy places" and relics! I give the Dragon an "A" for his ability to greatly deceive men in matters of worship! That is why God will burn even the land of Israel, because men fail to recognize what is truly "holiness to God". It is not the places where Abraham sacrificed, nor the places where Jesus and John the Baptist did great works, neither is it the tombs of the patriarchs! It is all those human beings and only the people occupying that small place, even all of them both Arab and Jew. They are God's "temples" and all of them are "holiness to the Lord"! A man, any man, and all men are the most precious things down here in this world. Those who touch any man touch the apple of God's eye. So much for Jews shooting Palestinians, and the Arabs throwing rocks! That scenario is a display of human error and arrogance and man's inhumanity to man! All this violence is done in the name of God and for "rightful" worship! Both Jews and Arabs "shall be made low"! The "clay vessels" over there shall all be broken in pieces!
Men have a tendency to "build houses on sinking sand". "Sand" refers to men! Genesis 22:17. See"Houses Built on Sand". The Father reproved Peter at the transfiguration scene for wanting to build temples to Moses and Elijah along with a temple to Christ, Matthew 17:1-6. We must not build temples on any foundation other than Jesus. Despite these considerations men have built houses of worship to men. "Building on sand" can be disastrous, Matthew 7:26-27. Some churches bear the name of the apostle or patron saint picked by their founders, 1 Corinthians 3:3-7. Other churches carry the name of the minister who founded it. While these are obvious errors, still worse is these churches are really based on the doctrines and commandments of men rather than the real truth, Matthew 15:8-9. It would not be necessary for the "Holy Ghost to reprove the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment" if men had understood and worshipped rightly, John 16:7-11. God would not have had to rebuke the churches of Asia in the book of Revelation if they had it "right"! The true worshippers of God do not do it anywhere on earth. They do it "in spirit and in truth" as a matter of mental communion "in High places" between them and their Father, John 4:23-24, 14:23; Revelation 3:20.
Here in the GOOD NEWS we have discovered the Highest Rock! We have chosen to build our faith in Him!
Deuteronomy 32:18 Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten God that formed thee.
Psalm 18:2 The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
It is one thing to build on the Words and work of Jesus Christ, and we have done so. But we have also discovered the One whom Jesus said is greater than himself.
John10:29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. 30 I and my Father are one.
John 14:28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.
Psalm 91:9 Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; 10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. 11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. 12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. 13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet. 14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. 15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. 16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.
Many of you like to worship the Son! You go right ahead and worship your brother! But we will make no apologies to you forworshipping the Father! He seeks such to worship Him in spirit and in truth! Jesus told us that, John 4:23-24. We have discovered our Father, "the Rock that begat us", and we have based (founded) our newest documents on HIS WORDS spoken in the first person. There is no Higher or Superior Word found anywhere. He will do exactly what He said to the prophets. You see, Father "changes not"!
Men have spent millions of dollars building, renovating, and enlarging church buildings, which God plans to burn. That money could have been put to better use by helping poor and needy people, the "human temples" that count with God. Jesus gave us great information about the significance of man's buildings in Matthew 24:1-2. Devils will throw down all stones built by men, where men are the "lively stones" in the spiritual application of the allegory. What is left on the ground, God will pulverize and shake to powder!
Earthly Men As "Lively Stones", 1 Peter 2:5
III Hermas IX:18I saw six men come, tall and glorious and alike in appearance and they summoned a multitude of men. And the others also which came were tall men and handsome and powerful. And the six men ordered them to build a tower above the gate. And there arose a great noise from those men who had come to build the tower, as they ran hither and thither round the gate.
19. For the virgins standing round the gate told the men to hasten to build the tower. Now the virgins had spread out their hands, as if they would take something from the men.
20. And the six men ordered stones to come up from a certain deep place, and to go to the building of the tower. And there went up ten stones square and polished, not hewn from a quarry.
21. And the six men called to the virgins, and ordered them to carry all the stones which should go unto the building of the tower, and to pass through the gate and to hand them to the men that were about to build the tower.
22. And the virgins laid the first ten stones that rose out of the deep on each other, and they carried them together, stone by stone.
23. And just as they stood together around the gate, in that order they carried them that seemed to be strong enough and had stooped under the corners of the stone, while the others stooped at the sides of the stone. And so they carried all the stones. And they carried them right through the gate, as they were ordered, and handed them to the men for the tower; and these took the stones and builded.
24. Now the building of the tower was upon the great rock and above the gate. Those ten stones then were joined together, and they covered the whole rock. And these formed a foundation for the building of the tower. And [the rock and] the gate supported the whole tower.
25. And, after the ten stones, other twenty-five stones came up from the deep, and these were fitted into the building of the tower, being carried by the virgins, like the former. And after these thirty-five stones came up. And these likewise were fitted into the tower. And after these came up other forty stones. and these all were put into the building of the tower. So four rows were made in the foundations of the tower.
26. And (the stones) ceased coming up from the deep, and the builders likewise ceased for a little. And again the six men ordered the multitude of the people to bring in stones from the mountains for the building of the tower.
27. They were brought in accordingly from all the mountains, of various colors, shaped by the men, and were handed to the virgins; and the virgins carried them right through the gate, and handed them in for the building of the tower. And when the various stones were placed in the building, they became all alike and white, and they lost their various colors.
28. But some stones were handed in by the men for the building, and these did not become bright; but just as they were placed, such likewise were they found; for they were not handed in by the virgins, nor had they been carried in through the gate. These stones then were unsightly in the building of the tower.
29. Then the six men, seeing the stones that were unsightly in the building, ordered them to be removed and carried below into their own place whence they were brought.
30. And they say to the men who were bringing the stones in; "Abstain for your parts altogether from handing in stones for the building; but place them by the tower, that the virgins may carry them through the gate, and hand them in for the building. For if," [say they,] they be not carried in through the gate by the hands of these virgins, they cannot change their colors.Labor not therefore," say they, "in vain."
Preachers on earth have tried to build God a spiritual temple by presenting human "lively stones" before the Throne as fast as they "convert" them. However from our parable, there is a problem with earthly men lifted up and presented to God. They are proselytes of men and do not "change colors". They are products of the human conversion process and they are filled with the doctrines and commandments of their churches and preachers, Matthew 15:7-9. These men are "born of the preachers" and not by the Virgin Holy Spirits of Heaven. They cannot agree with the real truth (turn white), because their perceptions are colored by the doctrines and commandments of men. Therefore the true worshippers of God do not do it in man's building. The Virgin Spirits of Heaven must fine-tune the thinking of men below so they can understand the depth of the Archangels' trumpet sounds, Proverbs 9:1-6. Those below in the churches and the denominations must all be "borne by the Virgins of Heaven" or they will remain earthly rejects. The preachers and the churches "must all be born again" in order to enter the kingdom of Heaven. It happens all the time when men take their last breath. The process described to Hermas reveals how "the Lord builds His house".This labor is not in vain.
They Labor In Vain That Build It
I know some men "mean well". Men have "good intentions" which demons can warp to their advantage. They want to do "something" to help God. They have heard many preachers express a need for men to "serve" God. They read Jesus' words to the disciples who watched him leave. He told them to "Go into all the world" and tell his story. Men in every generation assume that Jesus was speaking to them. Presumption is all "the opening" that demons on man's body need to "call" men and "send" them ill-prepared to spread their warped version of "the gospel". Devils started the "hellfire and damnation for man" doctrines, which stick like dung onto most Christians. There are many blind men, who think repeating, "You must be born again" is some kind of great statement to get a man's attention and to make that man listen to his "witnessing"! To frighten man with fear of damnation is the ploy used to get them entwined in their doctrine as the victims look upon these self-styled evangelists as caring "savers" or learned teachers who really love them. Another ploy is the "healing" approach. These preachers and healers like to invoke the name of the Holy Spirit and push "faith-healing". Insecure and sick men seek anything that promises a remedy against sickness and disease, and in the end, eternal life. These men are quick to spout their "credentials" especially the claim that "God called" them. However men are the "shepherds" who lead, convert, and bind men with the darkness we have exposed in the "GOOD NEWS". By following men, the Lord is not your Shepherd as He was David's Shepherd in the 23rd Psalm. See"Living Psalm 23". You will not be lost if you do not join man's church and pay preachers "tithes and offerings". Joining and attending human run churches is not the way to "get saved and stay saved". You never were "lost" in the sense the churches teach, and you never could possibly be damned. That NEVER was the PLAN! If you start with a false premise as a foundation and build your faith and understanding of things according to it, then all the doctrinal concepts based upon that error will be lies, and all your understanding will be flawed. Doctrinal conclusions, which support that foundation, will crumble in the face of real light. Since we have proven all men are "saved" in so many ways, finally your Father is "shaking everything" and telling us in no uncertain terms "I draw all nations of men home to Heaven according to My desire". He speaks for Himself in the first person! He is not a liar! This puts Christians, churches, and preachers on the spot because their doctrines on the books say differently. In fact all world religions are on the spot! Your flesh and blood brothers and sisters in these churches are not superior to your Father. Neither can they veto or stop God from doing this. In "A Whole Lot of Shaking", your Father vaunts His Authority over truth and tells you plainly that He desires and draws all nations home to Heaven! Clearly God is true and the preachers and their Dragon controllers are liars.
KJV Romans 3:4 God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.
God is cutting down every doctrine and idea that men built on their false Jesus-foundations. It was not Jesus upon which they built their churches, but it is the lying deception of the Dragon. He "carried them away with the floods of his mouth", Revelation 12:15-17. If no man could ever be lost from the very beginning and if God has been glorifying all men immediately after death, consider all the ideas it destroys that churches and religions have presumed and taught men throughout human history! All faiths, doctrines, and beliefs that men have built and hold crumble to powder and are rendered "worthless". "So naked I stood in truth's shattering light ashamed in simplicity. Those who must live must not die in the night. They must bend with reality. For dead ghosts will weave you in a self-made bind until the stead of truth come a-riding"! So much for "man's witness" and proselytizing by blind men, John 2:24-25. The understanding of men on earth is corrupt and extremely deficient. They cannot fit into God's FAMILY above without being "changed". Therefore God must undo the thought concepts men have learned on earth when He draws them to Heaven!All human labor to "save" men and to bind them in the churches is in vain. You cannot possibly build the "house" for God! Only God can do it and only God has the power and Authority to do it. "They labor in vain who build it" is a truth you cannot brake no matter how arrogant you are and how hard you try. It does not matter how emotional and upset you may be over the "sinful" state of this world! You still cannot "build the house" of God! You need to "be still and know that I am the Lord" and "stand still and behold the salvation of the Lord".
Our HEADLINE contains two texts. In the first God describes the Christ-foundation. Belief in Christ brings peace of mind and assurance. Because Jesus became God's salvation, men do not have to do anything to save themselves …. except to wait on the Reaper! ALL shall be reaped and the least seed shall not fall on the ground and be "lost", Matthew 13:38-43, Amos 9:9. Some mendo not believe Jesus saved the world and took away all our sins. In their belief system, what Isaiah testified of Christ cannot be fully "true", Isaiah 53:1-6. Because of their personal unbelief, these persons "make haste" scurrying around like ants trying to "save" men's souls where Jesus came short and prevent them from being damned by "their effort". All this has done is to "make their proselytes two-fold more the child of hell than themselves" using Jesus' vernacular, Matthew 23:15. This activity has colored the thinking of Christians as "lively stones". They cannot agree with the real truth because the doctrines and commandments of men fills their minds. "Except the Lord build His House they labor in vain who build it". God builds according to the process revealed by Mother Wisdom to Hermas. All men, all Christians, all churches and religions have the true rebirth coming. Heavenly Virgins and the Archangels will do the honors, when men take their last breath. In the meantime those of us who fully understand do not have to scurry about like "three blind mice" thinking our effort is necessary "or men will be lost". We can "be still and see the salvation of God" anytime we want to. All we have to do is check the death notices in our local newspaper! God has everything under control! Can you say, "Amen"?!
Isaiah 2:10 Enter into the rock, and hide thee in the dust, for fear of the Lord, and for the glory of his majesty. 11 The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the Lord alone shall be exalted in that day. 12 For the day of the Lord of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low: 13 And upon all the cedars of Lebanon, that are high and lifted up, and upon all the oaks of Bashan, 14 And upon all the high mountains, and upon all the hills [that are] lifted up, 15 And upon every high tower, and upon every fenced wall, 16 And upon all the ships of Tarshish, and upon all pleasant pictures. 17 And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be made low: and the Lord alone shall be exalted in that day.
The Authority is here and asserting His presence. He is letting all proud men, arrogant human churches, "elder son" preachers and "hireling" ministers, and the world religions know their place. Your words and your doctrines cannot stand before Him! He has expressed His work in the first person through the prophets. And all that "men have built" on the Christ-foundation has been shaken apart and made low. He has built Heaven (His House) with the "glory and honor" of ALL your brothers and sisters from all previous generations of humanity. Not one is missing. And the lying "plans of salvation" and "judgment doctrines" of the preachers and the churches, which exclude many and indeed most men, and all the world religions are exposed as worthless dribble and a thing of naught! I thank and praise God for pulverizing it and making it all "low"! Go ahead! Say, "Amen"!
