I recognize the perspective and direction of the approach to salvation taught by the churches, but there are problems with it, which you need to recognize. This is the problem for the "saints" in the time of the end, Daniel 7:21-22; Revelation 13:4-7, and Matthew 24:1-2 where church members are the (lively) "stones" in question. If the scriptures are true and cannot be broken, how can you trust what men have taught you when the last day church is "overcome by the Dragon" and crunched beneath his claws? You ought to question the rightness of everything men teach you because the serpent loves to deceive and contaminate what "is written". My purpose is to shakeup your thinking and also to show you what you cannot see. With that in mind why don't you be like the Bereans when they heard Paul and check out the scriptural reasoning that leads our thinking?! In that regard look at what follows.
I agree that part of our responsibility is to help and encourage our weak and captive brethren in good works. That is just a small part of what is happening in the BIG picture. Good works make life wholesome and enjoyable. But everyone is not destined in life to be a "vessel of pleasure". Many are "vessels for unclean works", because God has allowed the devil to take them captive, Romans 9:14-24. No man can free himself by his own will, or by my will, or by your will. Philippians 2:13 sets the record straight. You cannot do anything on your own. "It is of God to will and to work good works in us". "Without God no man can do anything", John 15:5. I am not among those who blame the captive for being a captive of the devil, Revelation 13:4-6. God gave humanity over to the devil for the express purpose of captivity so He could be our Hero when He frees us in the same way He gave the Hebrews to Pharaoh just so He could do a dramatic rescue with Moses so He could glorify His name! He PLANNED life events to make us love Him in the end when He rescues ALL humanity! Luke 7:37-43. God must and will set every captive free, whether the devil approves of it or not! Luke 4:17-21; Romans 8:38-39. "I am persuaded" like Paul was persuaded, but the devil has persuaded some preachers that he, and sin, and death can and will separate men from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus! And Jesus will lose almost all sheep no matter what kind of commandment the Father gave him! You see, some preachers believe in the devil and his superior power more than Jesus and my Father because of their presumed lesser power(?)! How many sheep do you suppose the devil can rip out of God's hand and cause them to be damned, a thing clearly "not the Father's will"? This is particularly ridiculous when you consider that only God can damn and has the power to damn! Who's will is done on earth as it is in Heaven? Do you think Jesus was too weak to save the world like he was born to do? Is his blood really powerful enough to take away the sins of the world like the Holy Spirit in "John the Baptist" said? Can we really trust the understanding of the Holy Spirit, John 1:29, or should we believe in the wisdom of today's preachers more who are enchanted by the Dragon? Since you know a man is not saved by "works" and a man's personal self-righteousness is like filthy rags to God (Isaiah 59:12-14, 64:6) ...there is nothing you or I can do to "impress" Him! Righteousness is a "free gift" bestowed upon both those in filthy rags and also the "naked" without respect of persons, Romans 3:23, 5:18-22. What I am saying is "what about GRACE"? You must stress GRACE, a perfect work of Jesus, even more than you stress threats and punishment as if harming sinners and destroying "prodigal sons" and "children of disobedience" is the unyielding goal and objective of the Father's LOVE, COMPASSION, MERCY, and JUDGMENT. Why should you do this? It is because "where sin abounds the GRACE of God does MUCH MORE ABOUND"! God's judgment is not like man's concept of judgment and very different from the justice and judgment of the "elder son" preachers in the churches. While church "elders" threaten prodigals with fire and brimstone and refuse to join God in celebrating the homecoming of His prodigal children, your Father continues drawing them to Him in the feast of love as fast as they take their last breath. He practices Matthew 5:43-48. I preach it and believe it. They were dead but He made them alive! They died "lost" on earth but now they are found up there with Him in Heaven where He has given them "the best robe" (Revelation 19:8). This is the real free gift. Men on earth may object and protest against this in their pulpits all they want, but their objections cannot stop the show! But the tail does not wag God! The tails in pulpits on earth will do better if they accept the work of the HEAD! That work will continue whether you agree with it or not, and whether you can understand His degree of "Perfect" love or not. The preaching of mammon-loving "hirelings" on earth cannot make their words become reality! No one can tell God what He can and cannot do or what He should and should not do, whether you are an "elder son" or not! No law can stop Him! HE IS ABOVE ALL LAW! All laws must stop and drop prostrate beneath His feet! This is the judgment of Jesus and my Father: John 5:22, 8:15; Revelation 5:13, 15:3-4. The judgment of men and devils cannot fathom true love and mercy, because they cannot understand it. Christmas is coming and despite Jesus' birth and death and the song of the angels to the shepherd boys, Christians still don't get it. "Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace and good will to men". (Not hellfire and brimstone and death threats to men. Try preaching Matthew 5:43-48 in a real application of it in your judgment doctrine). "I have tidings of great joy which SHALL BE TO ALL PEOPLE"... not just to Christians only and believers only! "Joy to the world the Lord is come"... and I believe my King! "It is not my Father's will that one sheep (man) should perish. My Father gave me a commandment that of ALL (mankind, Psalm 2:6-8)) that my Father gave me I SHOULD LOSE NOTHING! And none of them is lost but the son of perdition (Lucifer) that the scriptures might be fulfilled"! You can take that WORD to the bank! Let the "hireling" mammon-loving preachers ("elder sons") in the churches fumble around with "their plans of salvation" according to their church doctrines. But your thoughts are not like God's thoughts and your ways are not like His ways. His thoughts are higher than your judgment thoughts and His ways of GRACE and MERCY are greater than the preachers' ideas of grace and mercy! Isaiah 55:8-10.
A Babylonian Holiday
As you know your Father has no part in a lie. "Lying lips are an abomination unto the Lord," Proverbs 12:22. And Jesus said to the devils riding on and speaking through the crowd of men, "Your father, the devil, was a liar from the beginning and abode not in the truth and he is the father of a lie", John 8:44. So what does a fat man in a red suit have to do with the birth of Jesus? And what about reindeer? Do they fly? What does the North Pole have to do with angels singing to shepherd boys in Israel? Imaginary elves are a departure from reality when compared to the three Magi kings from Orient. A miserable female potter decided to create a false holiday, Revelation 17 and Isaiah 47. This is Lucifer's wife who fell from Heaven with him! She told blind idol worshipping Catholics to pick December 25, clearly far off from the real date either in July or September. Read these texts:
Exodus 20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness [of any thing] that [is] in heaven above, or that [is] in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: 5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
KJV Matthew 4:10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
KJV Matthew 23:9 And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.
KJV Isaiah 2:12 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: 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.
Neither God nor Jesus has given the Catholics an exception that they should make an image to Mary and bow down before it. As Jesus told the devil, "Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God and HIM ONLY shalt thou serve"! As you can see Catholics are willfully snake-bitten!
No shepherd would be out with flocks and sleeping on the ground in snow covered fields. It does snow in Israel. Now Babylon's thing is "merchandising", Revelation 18:3-14. Tyrus in Ezekiel 27 is the same thing! Babylon fell in the sea in her fall from Heaven and this theme plays strongly in the Tyrus analogy. Oh, how shrewdly they manipulate men! What deceit "belies" this season! Babylon has given men a perverse holiday and linked it with a false day for Jesus' birth roundly garnished with Nordic mythology and pagan winter solstice rituals. Finally she crowned it with a fat time for the merchants of the earth. The justification.... Christmas is a time for giving even as "Jesus is God's gift to men". Translation: buy from the merchants and give it as gifts. Further more "Christmas is for kids to make them happy". Translation: lie to them about a fat man in a red suit who lives at the North Pole and has a chief reindeer named Rudolph who can fly! This man will give you a gift if you are nice! Devils have contaminated every human institution and every aspect of human life. How true it is. Tis the season to be Babylon's, because God has no part in a lie. I believe a lie belies Christmas!It begins Christmas Eve!
Connection: "belie" and Eve = "believe"
be·lie(b¹-lº") tr.v. be·lied, be·ly·ing, be·lies. 1. To picture falsely; misrepresent. 2. To show to be false. 3. To be counter to; contradict. --be·li"er n. The American Heritage Dictionary
The corollary to this defines a "lie". To be a lie one must use words to "misrepresent" or to "create a false mental picture".
Secrets 30:17 And I put sleep into him and he fell asleep. And I took from him a rib and created him 18 a wife, that death should come to him by his wife, and I took his last word and called her name mother, that is to say, Eva.
From the text in Secrets, we learn that the death of Adam was a planned event by God before the creation of Eve. All of the Eden events were a long-playing psychodrama for tutorial purposes to initialize the education pathway for billions of children to come in succeeding generations. What transpired with Eve was deliberate on God's part as the first segment of His greater education scheme. At this point Adam had no idea of a word called "death", nor what it would entail for him sometime later. However, God, the Teacher, knew it all! The invisible cast-aways who fell from Heaven are an integral part of God's PLAN.
Question: "What did the Serpent do to Eve in the Garden of Eden"? He told a deceptive "lie" to Eve! How Eve perceived those words and acted upon them in her mind has coined the word to "believe". To be deceived one must accept and "believe" a lie!
be·lieve(b¹-l¶v") v. be·lieved, be·liev·ing, be·lieves. --tr. 1. To accept as true or real. 2. To credit with veracity. 3. To expect or suppose; think. --intr. 1. To have firm faith, especially religious faith. 2. To have faith, confidence, or trust. 3. To have confidence in the truth or value of something. 4. To have an opinion; think. --be·liev"er n. The American Heritage Dictionary
Interestingly another name for the devil is "beliar":
John 8: 44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
Testament of Judah 25:3 And ye shall be the people of the Lord, and have one tongue; And there shall be there no spirit of deceit of Beliar, For he shall be cast into the fire for ever.
2 Samuel 23: 6 But the sons of Belial shall be all of them as thorns thrust away, because they cannot be taken with hands: 7 But the man that shall touch them must be fenced with iron and the staff of a spear; and they shall be utterly burned with fire in the same place.
When One Reacts Like Eve to God's Word
BE LIEVE = BE alive, to "BE" means "I LEAVE" this earth. "Belief "is to BE a LEAF from the Tree of Life. To live eternally we must leave this earth, Hebrews 12:22-24. All of this is a living parable being "worked" by the Great Chessmaster. We are part of the program Heaven is watching called "God PRESENTS..." "And the books were open in Heaven" is a reference to our Internet Library, http://www.goodnewsinc.net/refs.html. The Words angelic priests paid us in the form of their personal tithes and offerings, which they shared with us out of kindness have become the works of the "GOOD NEWS". They along with the Heavenly Hosts collectively constitute "the man that came out of the sea and spoke" as seen by Ezra, II Esdras ch.13.
KJV Revelation 20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
Daniel 7: 9 I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire. 10 A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened.
The "Quake" Connection
2 Esdras 6:13 'Rise to your feet,' he replied, 'and you will hear a loud resounding voice. 14 15 When it speaks, do not be frightened if the place where you stand tremble and shakes; it speaks of the end, and the earth's foundations will understand 16 that it is speaking of them. They will tremble and shake; for they 17 know that at the end they must be transformed.' On hearing this I rose to my feet and listened; and a voice began to speak. Its sound was like the 18 sound of rushing waters. The voice said: 'The time draws near when I shall come to judge those who live on the 19 earth, the time when I shall inquire into the wickedness of the wrong-doer 20 the time when Zion's humiliation will be over, the time when a seal will be set on the age about to pass away. Then I will perform these signs: the books shall be opened in the sight of heaven, and all shall see them at the 21 same moment. Wickedness shall be blotted out and deceit destroyed, but fidelity shall flourish, corruption be overcome, and truth, so long unfruitful, be brought to light.' 29 While the voice was speaking to me, the ground under me began to 30 quake. Then the angel said to me, 'These, then, are the revelations I have 31 brought you this night."
Isaiah 29:18 And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness. 19 The meek also shall increase their joy in the Lord, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel. 20 For the terrible one is brought to nought, and the scorner is consumed, and all that watch for iniquity are cut off: 21 That make a man an offender for a word, and lay a snare for him that reproveth in the gate, and turn aside the just for a thing of nought. 24 They also that erred in spirit shall come to understanding, and they that murmured shall learn doctrine.
ALL THIS may be found at our 12 GOOD NEWS web-sites and our four volumes of documents available on the Internet.
After listening to the news and learning the time of the California quake, I remembered feeling my bed and the walls jolt as if someone shook the walls. At the time I was half-asleep and thought someone upstairs had banged against the walls. I did not put two and two together until recalling that my bed shook too. Someone falling against the wall could not make my bed shake. It was more like a shock wave. It lasted long enough to stir me into turning over. Now I realize this was my first encounter with an earthquake. That happened in Joshua Tree, CA, about 130 miles east of LA. For what is Joshua famous? He fought the battle of Jericho and led Israel to possess Canaan land. And Los Angeles is "the city of angels" and it refers also to the "lost angels" (demons who fell). This has bad prognostications for the Kingdom of Darkness! I do not want to be closer to the center point of one of these earthquakes. It is interesting that it happened and reached me. I have a small idea of how Ezra felt. Demons are in trouble! Only God can cause an earthquake!
There are keys in the wording to help us see "where" the enlightening process takes place: "the books shall be opened in the sight of heaven, and all shall see them at the 21 same moment." Also, "And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book .... 24 They also that erred in spirit shall come to understanding, and they that murmured shall learn doctrine.
If you read the following, you might conclude like I did that God will enlighten men on earth in the end:
Isaiah 35:5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.6 Then shall the lame [man] leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert. 7 And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water: in the habitation of dragons, where each lay, [shall be] grass with reeds and rushes. 8And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it [shall be] for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err [therein].9 No lion shall be there, nor [any] ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk [there]: 10 And the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
Desert, wilderness, parched ground, etc, refer to this earth and humanity here. Here, there are isolated men who are "springs of water". There are some men who "blossom like a rose" with good works. And "surely the people are grass". Key words show that God is enlightening the passengers going home daily, not huge numbers of men who constitute a spiritual desert. Here is the place where you must be to see all this light: "the books shall be opened in the sight of heaven". In Isaiah 35, "a highway shall be there, and those without a wedding garment cannot travel on it, but the ransomed of the Lord" who rise daily are the ones who will see our work and appreciate it and be enlightened by it. It is on the Internet and all their teachers have to do is show it to them. We have written their explanations making matriculation for the "daily sacrifice" very easy. Men down here that I am concerned about shall remain a desert. Very few men on earth will learn the real truth.
Isaiah 42:14 I have long time holden my peace; I have been still, and refrained myself: now will I cry like a travailing woman; (Mother Wisdom will do this work) I will destroy and devour at once. 15 I will make waste mountains and hills, and dry up all their herbs; and I will make the rivers islands, and I will dry up the pools. 16 And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.
We are mainly working for the benefit of that group which rises from the text in Isaiah 35.They are the ones who can appreciate this work!
Lucifer makes it comfortable, even enjoyable for those crunched beneath his his claws! Every Dragon-slave loves the deception. This is the way it is when living in a lie! You may now answer the question posed at the beginning of this document and reflect upon your own self-righteousness. Can you understand why the Spirit of the prophet Isaiah wrote, "All our righteousness is like filthy rags" before God? Isaiah 64:6. Can you understand how "the saints" fulfill Daniel 7:21-22, 8:8-13; Revelation 13:4-7?
Your Father, El (Elohim), did this! He defrocked the season removing the disguise of Jesus clothing draped over it. And behold, it was Babylon, the "other woman" of Revelation 17. She decked the halls with boughs of folly. Fol lie-lie-lie-lie, lie-lie-lie,lie! So how can you sing, "No-El, No-El", "No God! No God"?! "While the bridegroom tarried, all ten virgins slumbered and slept", Matthew 25:5. It is time for YOU to wakeup and smell the coffee!
