They Don't KNOW God!

KJV Isaiah 45:15 Verily thou art a God that hidest thyself, O God of Israel, the Saviour.

KJV Matthew 11:25 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes. 26 Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight. 27 All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.

Isaiah 55:8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. 9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

KJV Psalm 50:16 But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth? 17 Seeing thou hatest instruction, and castest my words behind thee. 18 When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him, and hast been partaker with adulterers. 19 Thou givest thy mouth to evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit. 20 Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother; thou slanderest thine own mother's son. 21 These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes.

Hi, A..!

You have submitted words YOU linked together to support your concept of justice and judgment, which make punishment and reprisal its objective and goal. Now let us do something the Archangel Gabriel likes to do with his "balances". Your scriptural links will be on one side and my scriptural links will be on the other side. Your scriptural links point to acts, possibilities, and outcomes that might result because of "man's actions". My scriptural links show the the END of the matter after this world is burned and after the GREAT JUDGMENT as a result of the Father's FINAL action. I will list your links as "A" and mine as "B". Now let every eye which sees this email judge both "A" and "B" to see which links show FINAL Authority from the Supreme Judge.

 

A. Possible outcomes of MAN'S ACTIONS

 

REVELATION 22:18-19
For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
JOHN 1:1-7,
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that ALL MEN through him MIGHT BELIEVE.
JOHN 3:11-21
Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and receive not our witness. If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things? And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up; That WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that W HOSOEVER BELIEVETH in him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world thorough him MIGHT BESAVED. He that believeth on him is not condemned: BUT HE THAT BELIEVETH NOT IS CONDEMNED ALREADY, because he hath not believed in the name of the of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh
to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

2 TIMOTHY 2:19
Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from INIQUITY.

1 THESSALONIANS 2:7-14
For the mystery of INIQUITY doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs of lying wonders. And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they MIGHT BE SAVED. And for these cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. But we are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning CHOSEN you to SALVATION through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth: Whereunto he CALLED YOU BY OUR GOSPEL, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
REVELATION 22:18-19
For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
JOHN 12:48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.

 

B. The real and true outcome due to the JUDGE'S ACTIONS

 

KJV Isaiah 53:1 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed? 2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. 3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. 4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. 5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. 6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

KJV Matthew 5:43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. 44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; 45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? 47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? 48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

KJV Isaiah 57:16 For I will not contend for ever, neither will I be always wroth: for the spirit should fail before me, and the souls which I have made. 17 For the iniquity of his covetousness was I wroth, and smote him: I hid me, and was wroth, and he went on frowardly in the way of his heart. 18 I have seen his ways, and will heal him: I will lead him also, and restore comforts unto him and to his mourners. 19 I create the fruit of the lips; Peace, peace to him that is far off, and to him that is near, saith the Lord; and I will heal him.

KJV REVELATION 15:3 And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints. 4 Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.

KJV REVELATION 5:13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.

KJV Isaiah 66:22 For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the Lord, so shall your seed and your name remain. 23 And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the Lord.

Since the absolute END of earth events is shown in the Revelation and Isaiah texts, the understanding in the email, "A", is lacking in FULL truth! God will DO those things expressed in "B", and the qualifying "exclusions" and vindictiveness that Christians believe in have absolutely no bearing on the outcome of the Father's LOVE and judgment decisions "made manifest". You simply cannot make liars out of Isaiah, Jesus, John, and the Father Himself! Do your own "self" assessment. I do not want an answer to the question I posed. This is something you need to square between you and our Father. Perhaps you approve of the attitude displayed by the "elder son" in the parable of the prodigal son. (1) Refusing to JOIN the Father in celebrating love and eternal LIFE for all prodigals and (2) arguing against His position of "unconditional" love, mercy and GRACE for ALL is not something that pleases Heaven!

Romans 5:18 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.

2 Corinthians 5:18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; 19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

Because of Isaiah 29:9-15 and REVELATION 5:1-5 not just any man can presume to understand the WORDS of the BOOK and loosen the seals God placed on it. REVELATION 5:1-5 shows that the writer linking the texts in "A" is excluded from being capable of reading and understanding God's sealed Word. The Father has "set His own Word in order before our eyes" in "B":

KJV Psalm 50:16 But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth? 17 Seeing thou hatest instruction, and castest my words behind thee. 18 When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him, and hast been partaker with adulterers. 19 Thou givest thy mouth to evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit. 20 Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother (like the "elder son" against his prodigal brother); thou slanderest thine own mother's son. 21 These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them (both my Words and "prodigals") in order before thine eyes. 22 Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver.

Since the Supreme Judge is the only Authority that counts and HE has set the WORDS of "B" in their right order, the END of the matter concerning man and his battle on earth is the only factor that has real weight and counts.... not man's actions occurring before the end. After the END of this world the Father requires ALL MEN and ALL NATIONS to worship before Him from one new moon to another. This is the "JUDGMENT of God MADE MANIFEST" as witnessed by the angels of Heaven. The "witness" of blind men on earth foaming "condemation" from their mouths is a sad joke! So ... whose scriptural links carry Most High "authority" and rightness, "A" or "B"? This is easy! You be the judge!

GOOD NEWS

Hi, J. !

I sent A Death Has No Sting! A seems to enjoy quoting what appears to be a threat to those who make changes to the words in the Book of Revelation. However, he has failed to acknowledge why his understanding fails to match the truth of REVELATION 5:13, 15:3-4. He ignores those words as if they are not written. His desire to have men condemned and burned in hell has no weight. It is rendered NULL and VOID if applied to humans by the action of the Supreme Judge in His "judgment verdict made manifest" witnessed by the angels of Heaven. Men on earth guessing at judgment matters are not reliable witnesses! If men are burned with devils in the END, A.. will have to explain how ALL NATIONS and ALL CREATURES are found in this Book worshipping God in Heaven! When we add Isaiah 66:22-23, he must explain why God in the new heaven and new earth requires "ALL flesh to worship before Him from one new moon unto another". He does not seem to want to face those texts! If most men are to be burned in the END as he alludes, then the Revelation texts we point out must be lies. Nevertheless if the Supreme Judge practices the love, grace and mercy Jesus described in Matthew 5:43-48, then all those threats A. mentions in the Revelation and applies in error to humans are rendered INVALID and POWERLESS by the action of the Supreme Judge in His Court in the final judgment.

God has power to "waive" the law and all its consequences for infractions! God is the Highest JUDGE!

KJV Deuteronomy 32:4; He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he. KJV Dan 4:37

Daniel 4:37 Now I Nebuchadnezzar praise and extol and honour the King of heaven, all whose works are truth, and his ways judgment: and those that walk in pride he is able to abase.

These texts are VERY IMPORTANT when we SEE God as He is and attempt to fathom HIS WAYS! All judges may acquit, void, nullify, vacate, and dismiss any and all charges for legal violations against the accused. Apparently A thinks our Father cannot do this or will not do this. Such a conclusion fails to recognize the actions of the "Father as a JUDGE" in His view of what Israel did both to Him and to Moses (Numbers 23:18-23), His actions in the "prodigal son" analogy (Luke 15:15-32), His judgment shown in Jesus with the "woman caught in the very act of adultery" (JOHN 8:1-9), and the Judge's own Words spoken in the first person: Isaiah 54:5-14, 57:16-19, and Malachi 3:6,18. All these are extremely important if we are to learn of the Judge's character and previous verdicts. All men do not know God, Matthew 11:25-27. Clearly A.. does not KNOW God!

You are so right about not adding or deleting any words from the prophecy of the book of Revelation. But notice that in the LAST scene, of the LAST chapter, of this LAST book, there are those INSIDE THE CITY and those OUTSIDE THE CITY. (REVELATION 22:14-15) Let us fear to add anything to this.

 

GOOD NEWS reply:

Hi!

Your warning is insufficient because you do not define WHO the relative pronoun, "those" refers to. Here is the extra step that gives us right understanding:

Those inside the City:

KJV JOHN 12:32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.

JOHN 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

KJV JOHN 6:37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.

KJV Hebrews 12:22 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, 23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, 24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.

ALL MEN are "drawn by Jesus" to him inside the City of Heavenly Jerusalem.

Those outside the City:

KJV REVELATION 22:15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

KJV 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.

KJV Isaiah 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! 21 Prepare slaughter for his children for the iniquity of their fathers; that they do not rise, nor possess the land, nor fill the face of the world with cities. 22 For I will rise up against them, saith the Lord of hosts, and cut off from Babylon the name, and remnant, and son, and nephew, saith the Lord.

Only the Kingdom of devils are "outside" and cannot rise up to Heavenly Jerusalem.

..

Where human understanding falls short your Father takes the extra steps to sharpen our focus to the point of perfect understanding. Understand who you are dealing with in the GOOD NEWS! You will continue to be amazed at how Father puts His own Word in "right" order!

Now a Word to all "elder sons" who harbor grudges and hate God's GRACE to ALL "prodigals":

Isaiah 66:5 Hear the word of the Lord, ye that tremble at his word; Your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for my name's sake, said, Let the Lord be glorified: but he shall appear to your joy, and they shall be ashamed.

Luke 15:20 And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him. 21 And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son.22 But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet: 23 And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry: 24 For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.

Matthew 21:31 ... Jesus saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you.

Comment from GOOD NEWS co-editor:

The key question is WHY does the Judge waive the law? Or more precisely, how CAN the Judge waive the law?

If we are indeed guilty, then waiving the law makes no sense. If the fox is guilty of raiding the chicken coop and eating the chickens, then waiving the law in his case is dangerous. Would someone be stupid enough to "waive the law", free the fox, and let him live in the chicken coop eternally? He'd just continue eating the chickens and terrorizing them.

The only reason the Judge can waive the law is because we are NOT guilty - not a single person. Were we guilty, then God's "waiving the law" would make no sense. For instance, "waiving the law" would not make any sense in the case of a serial killer who could then continue killing; however this is where the real guilt is - Rev 18:24, not with ANY person.

All sin has to be ascribed to the real guilty party, Enoch 10:9, Genesis 4:5-7 NEB or NAB. The Supreme Judge defines "sin" in His Court in the New English Bible and New American Bible rendition of His judicial inquiry with Cain! "Sin as a demon" as stated by the JUDGE and this verdict has NEVER CHANGED! It is not an act a man does on his own! Man may work sin works as a slave to slave-master devils while in spiritual Egypt (this earth), but sin cannot be credited to man under such circumstances IN GOD'S COURT! As Jesus stated, "The night comes (devils enter) when no man can work (be credited with "sin" works)"! JOHN 9:4. He, too, was acting as an "onsite" JUDGE! JOHN 9:39. And in Satan's case, the law will not be waived. As Jesus said, "only the son of perdition will die", Ecclesiastes 3:14; Matthew 23:33, 25:41; JOHN 16:7-11. No man can be added to the devil's penalty and no demon can be removed from it! The devil is the father of the "progeny of perdition" because he was generated for this cause, Isaiah 14:12,21-22, 47:5-14.

We can be declared "not guilty" precisely because we are "not guilty" (JOHN 9:4; 1 John 3:9), not because God chooses to "overlook" some things and look the other way (as traditional Christianity would like it). "Not guilty" means never have been "guilty", not "was guilty once before but not now".

In the case of the woman caught in adultery, there are some curious matters involved here, more than meets the eye. For instance, the Pharisees had "the right" according to the law to stone the woman. Did anything in the law stipulate that the stoners had to be sinless and blameless? In fact, the rock throwers did go to work on Stephen later, Acts 7:53-60. So what inhibited them in the case of the "adulteress"? What stopped them in their tracks when they could have acted "according to Moses" and stoned the woman? They could have easily replied to Jesus, "What is your problem, man, we can do this with the law's consent." But they didn't. Yet nothing prevented them from stoning Stephen later... I believe God was the one who did not allow them to bend over, pick up rocks, and pelt the woman dead. God was showing that this is not His Way - at that moment He withheld ANY power from moving. You cannot tempt or corner Him into stoning a person either through Jesus or even a Pharisee (see The Temptation of Abraham: The Temptation of God). However if you want to stone a man, and God does not prevent you...He will let that man see the glory as He did with Stephen. God will not stone a man but in the case wherein a man is stoned, God gives him the glory. Obviously the Pharisees wanted Jesus to do the act of verbally and physically stoning the woman. And through him, demons were trying to use the law by getting God to move men to gather rocks and stone another human being. If Jesus was not going to get trapped into doing it, the Pharisees could have done it "with the law's consent". But nobody "moved" in this case, which is only explainable by the fact that God froze everybody at that instant. But He did not immobilize the rock machine in Stephen's case. He handled that case differently. Stephen entered the glory, Ecclesiastes 12:7; Luke 20:37-39.

 

Lawyers, "Condemners", and Human Judges DON'T KNOW God

 

Every day that man has been on earth has been JUDGMENT DAY, not for man because no human being will be judged or can be judged by God for damnation with devils, JOHN 5:22, 8:15. Judgment in the Heavenly Court is only for the powers of darkness, Isaiah 14:12,21-22, 47:7-14; JOHN 12:31, 16:7-11. All those attempting to apply to men the sharp judgmental words written in the Bible, do not know God. Men have failed to rightly divide God's Word. Part of it is sent to men, and part of it is sent to demons. You cannot apply words sent to devils toward men. Neither can words sent specifically to men apply to devils. The Word is a two-edge sword, and proper edge must be applied to its recipient target. The sharp edge is always sent to demons, not to men. God's sons and daughters have always been the victims of demonic captivity, not the enemy. Human "accusers of the brethren" and "condemners" fail to recognize our enemy, REVELATION 12:10. "We do not wrestle human flesh and blood", Ephesians 6:12. The enemy of God and man has always been devils, REVELATION 12:7-12, 13:4-7. The purpose of God's love and sending Jesus to suffer and die is to free men from demonic captivity, Luke 4:17-21; Hebrews 2:6-7,14-15. In God's Court earthly "hireling", money-grubbing preachers hoping to pin the penalties of law violations to men, and devils hoping also to damn men with them have no standing, nor authority. They fail to recognize the actions of the Supreme Judge on man's behalf. Failing to recognize the Supreme Judge's verdicts and decisions is a HUGE MISTAKE! ALL OF GOD'S WAYS ARE JUDGMENT, Deuteronomy 32:4; Daniel 4:37.

They fall into this grave error by failing to believe Jesus' description of the Father'sWAYS:

KJV Matthew 5:43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. 44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; 45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? 47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? 48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

The WAYS of the Judge are found in the following judgments below. Notice how the ways of man, preachers, and the churches are "not My ways", Isaiah 55:8-10.

  1. God has "WAIVED the LAW" (Romans 3:21-24) and it has no power against any human being in the Heavenly Court. His decision-making cannot change, Malachi 3:6,18. We have seen His verdict when Balak asked Balaam to curse Israel, Numbers 23:18-23.
  2. We have seen His righteous judgment Christ performed with the woman caught in adultery, JOHN 8:1-9.
  3. His words to the "elder son", who despised his "prodigal" brother, speak volumes. In all these cases, men attempted to get their fellowman condemned and punished or slain, Luke 15:15-32.
  4. In another case James and John attempted to get Jesus to burn a Samaritan city that refused him entry. According to Jesus' response it is the spirit of devils who urge the burning of men, Luke 9:51-56. Burning men "never entered God's heart"! Jeremiah 7:31, 19:5.
  5. Finally we have the Judge's own Words spoken in the first person: Isaiah 54:5-14, 57:16-19, and Malachi 3:6,18. All these are extremely important if we are to learn of the Judge's character and previous verdicts. These texts express His highest thoughts and His superior ways that condemner's thoughts and ways do not match!

Those who teach hellfire and brimstone for men are of the devil! They DO NOT KNOW GOD! We must view such teachers as they are! They are the blind leading the blind, and they are the voices of bullfrogs croaking from the bottom of the ditch! God's thoughts are not their thoughts and His ways are not their ways. God's thoughts are higher than these preachers' thoughts and His ways of judgment are so much better than their ways of judgment! They want to judge, condemn, and damn men according to the law, while the Supreme Judge "voids" the law and its penalties and justifies ALL MEN in love, grace, and mercy, Isaiah 45:22-25, 54:17. Many so-called preachers and Christians are "lawyers" parading in sheep's clothing, but when they speak, we hear the voice of the Dragon, Luke 11:52; 2 Corinthians 11:13-15; REVELATION 12:15, 13:11. Check out the Dragon's "claws". C (see) -LAWS! Daniel 7:19-22; Romans 3:19-22. Our answer to all lawyers and condemners is our Father Himself, the Supreme Judge of the "Inner" Court of Heaven and the "outer court" in this earth!
