Take Heed of False Doctrines

Lonely_RoadThe way of the truth is not only narrow but we are also told only a few there be shall find it.  So it might seem a little lonely until we are given to understand who is Jesus Christ and brought together in fellowship with these other like minded believers which are the true Body of Christ.  It is in that fellowship where Christ is in the midst and we are taught of the Lord.  The sum of the word is truth and that truth is comprised of the doctrines of Jesus Christ which is also what saves us.  We are admonished to place great importance on doctrine and warned throughout of false doctrines that really are false gods and another jesus.

1Ti 4:16  Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.

Carnal minded men that walk after the flesh have corrupted the true doctrines of Jesus Christ and that corruption was completed even before the Bible was finished being written.  What we see today in orthodox Christianity is all lies, there is no truth, every single doctrine has been corrupted with idols. Other recent posts have covered the truth that we only come into understanding the true doctrines of Christ if we are so chosen of God and He sends that rain upon the land within our hearts and minds.

Deu_32:2 My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass: 

Pro_4:2 For I give you good doctrine, forsake ye not my law. (Christ doctrines not law of Moses)

Being Vigilant

Only the few Elect will learn sound doctrine and this only by the process of being dragged to Christ as babes and weaned off the milk of Jesus Christ and Him Crucified that is all Babylon can receive.  So this post won’t make much sense to those that are yet carnal and stuck on the milk and unable to move beyond.  But I know some of you will understand.

Isa_28:9  Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. 

Once we are given as God’s Israel the true doctrines by the revelation of Jesus Christ, we must never let our guard down and be vigilant in guarding our spiritual hearts and what we eat.  The story of how God chose the 300 warriors with Gideon tells us how important being vigilant is to the Lord.  Only those who drank water by cupping their hands while not taking their eyes off the perimeter (taking heed) were chosen to fight for the Lord.

Jdg 7:6  And the number of them that lapped, putting their hand to their mouth, were three hundred men: but all the rest of the people bowed down upon their knees to drink water. 

Jdg 7:7  And the LORD said unto Gideon, By the three hundred men that lapped will I save you, and deliver the Midianites into thine hand: and let all the other people go every man unto his place. 

There is great significance in this story and many others we will explore in this post.  Tolerating false doctrines in our fellowship and calling that loving our neighbor is one of the most insidious wiles of the devil .  The Lord is very serious about His truths and considers any cankering of His gold and silver to be a serious abomination.  This post will explore that seriousness and help us to see just how narrow the way of life is.  Many are called but very few will find the way thru the narrow gate.

Mat 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

Mat 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

The broad way and wide gate is where we are at when we do not take heed to our doctrine.  We will go along with the traditions of this world and not heed the Lord’s commandments yet we will claim to be loving people.  As a brother likes to say we will be going along to get along and this is deception.  The way of life is truly narrow and we must strive to stay on that path working out our own salvation with fear and trembling.

Php 2:12  Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. 

Purging out ALL of the false doctrines of Babylon is essential if we are to move on to maturity and become sons of God and rule in the millennium. Being in this first resurrection is the prize, the crown of life for which we press onward and upward for as there is no greater honor in the kingdom of God.  God is not looking for the weak of faith who will not obey all of His commandments and separate themselves from false doctrines.  There are so many esnamples of this message given to us in the Old Testament but very few can hear these messages and even fewer are given the faith to obey them. One of the most insidious false doctrines is the one that has tolerance and acceptance of others disobedience as love.  The mantra is let’s just “love” everyone and get along.  While we are to love everyone, we are also as spiritual man to judge all things and we must know the very definition of love.

1Co 2:15  But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. 

This false love mantra has snared many an aspiring man of God who are stuck as carnal babes and can’t move beyond the milk of the word.  We can not approach the world with the idea of going along to get along, that is a wile of the devil.  We must walk the narrow path, which is fraught with error on both sides or else we can easily run astray into a spiritual ditch.

Before we get into several examples of Scripture, we must not forget these admonitions on false doctrines first and foremost apply to us and what goes on inwardly in our wicked and deceitful hearts.  Don’t put all of this out there on the fool down the street.  No this is you and me in our season and yes it also includes outward applications on who we fellowship with and where we break bread and discuss the the doctrines of Jesus Christ.

The Mixed Multitude

In type and shadow we see that when we first leave Egypt, this mixed multitude and all of their flocks go along with us.

Exo_12:38  And a mixed multitude went up also with them; and flocks, and herds, even very much cattle.

Symbolically, in type and shadow, the mixed multitude represents the mixture of flesh and spirit and specifically the combination of the true doctrines of God with man’s carnal reasoning’s.   It is simply the fruit of spiritual fornication and ensures the doctrine and the people would not be pure and will remain  unclean.  From the outside the mixed multitude will look like the real deal, looks like Jesus, sounds like Jesus but it is another jesus and is a lie.  At first we won’t know the difference and will only come to know the error of allowing this mixed multitude into our spiritual houses later as we mature and our used of God to build His wall. The mixed multitude within us and without (others outside the true church) will lead us into whoredom with other gods and away from the purity that is Jesus Christ.  They were the ones that lead Israel away from its suffering for the sake of righteousness and grumbled of the requirements of God and ultimately spoiled the entire camp in the wilderness.

Num 11:4  And the mixt multitude that was among them fell a lusting: and the children of Israel also wept again, and said, Who shall give us flesh to eat?

Num 11:5  We remember the fish, which we did eat in Egypt freely; the cucumbers, and the melons, and the leeks, and the onions, and the garlick:

Num 11:6  But now our soul is dried away: there is nothing at all, beside this manna, before our eyes.

And remember I can’t say this enough, don’t think this is that deceived person over there, this is you and me as we start out on our journey to the truth and understanding the mysteries of the kingdom.   It takes time for us to mature and we all will bring flesh along with the Spirit initially.  Lord willing we will be given to move beyond the error.

If you read this entire story it was about the mixed multitude getting Israel to complain to God they had no meat.  God answers their compliant and idol by giving them tons of quail but they were not yet able to eat that meat and many died.  This weak grumbling spirit of the mixed multitude will not be willing to pay the cost of true discipleship.  This spirit is of the flesh and must be cast out.  We must not allow weaker brothers or sisters in the faith to bring in their doubtful disputation, whining and grumbling and the deadly leaven that spoils the bread of life.

Rom 14:1  Him that is weak in the faith receive ye, but not to doubtful disputations.

Those building the wall of the Temple in Nehemiah when they discovered their error, quickly separated from them.

Neh_13:3  Now it came to pass, when they had heard the law, that they separated from Israel all the mixed multitude.

This may not seem very loving to those yet carnal babes but God is serious about it.  We are to do the same and that includes not only the doctrines within us but also those we allow into our spiritual houses.  A common leaven brought into the true church relates to wanting to keep months, days, times and seasons as Paul spoke about in Galatians and Romans 14.  Not going to get into that here except to just state, giving those days up is a stumbling block to the spirit of the mixed multitude.  This spirit is willing to give God most of the glory but still clings to parts of the old man in order to avoid the persecution and rejection God’s Elect must incur from those called but not chosen.  Carnal babes that are not given repentance from their heresy on day keeping or any false doctrine need to be put out of our fellowship as we are told.  Here is Paul loving advice on how to deal with those who bring such leaven.

1Co 5:7  Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:

1Co 5:8  Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

1Co 5:9  I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators: (spiritual fornicators)

1Co 5:10  Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world.

1Co 5:11  But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.

BABYLON’s FALSE LOVE

The true Israel of God will tremble at the word and be very serious about weeding out all false doctrines and false brethren from their midst.  It is a wile of the devil to get us to compromise “did God really say” and rationalize the little bit of leaven to enter into our midst.  The flesh has even come up with the word love to define such compromise and what is wrong with just getting along with people and living in peace?  What is wrong with that is that it is not love by God’s very definition.  It is deception and rebellion against the commandments of God. Don’t let this mix multitude pretender spirit fool you.

1Jn 5:2  By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.

1Jn 5:3  For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

We are told that the truth has no lie in it, and it is the whole truth, the unadulterated truth that will set us free and deliver us from our bondage.  Fitting in with this world and avoiding persecution is fornicating with this world, playing the harlot and we all will do unless and until the Lord burns it out of us.  But deceived men will continue to claim the name of God and bring lies mixed with the truth and call that love.   Any lie we may be living ensures we have not the truth.  There is no lie in the truth.

1Jn 2:21  I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth.

We have to separate from these false doctrines and those that bring them in, unless they repent of their sin.    This is a serious commandment.  The carnal mind will oh so easily rationalize away what the Lord is really doing.

Luk 12:51 Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division:

2Co 6:14  Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

2Co 6:15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

2Co 6:16 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.

2Co 6:17  Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,

In my past immaturity, I was unwise in dealings with those who had some truth but also brought in leaven and cankered God’s true gold.    Those that do this, which will be all of us in our times;  are fornicating with their father the devil’s wife.  We are to have nothing to do with his harlot wife and need to get her and her lies out of our presence. Lest we think this is harsh and unloving let’s see what the Scriptures say.

1Co 5:1  It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, (mixing truth with lies) and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father’s wife (the harlot)

Eating in Scriptures refers to the doctrines we believe and take to heart.  We are not to be eating with any so called man of God who hold to these idols, is drunk on false gospels and fornicating with the harlot.  We are not to let them into our spiritual houses.

1Co 5:11  But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.

This eating speaks about fellowship and discussing the things of God.  We are to separate from all who bring this fornication and walk as men committing whoredom with the world.  The carnal mind won’t accept this as love but that is what it is as doing it is obedience to the Lord.  We have some more loving words on this topic from the Apostle John that those plagued by Babylonian diseases do not appreciate and want to ignore.

2Jn 1:9  Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.

2Jn 1:10  If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:

2Jn 1:11  For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

Somebody bringing  the Trinity, Eternal Torment, Free Will, the fall of mankind, holiday keeping, etc is abiding NOT in the doctrine of Christ and we are given very clear instructions on what we are to do. A wise scribe will bring the truth, the treasures of God’s word out of both the old and the new.  Hopefully we know that all the Old Testament was written as ensamples, types and shadows of spiritual lessons God’s Elect would be living by every word.

1Co 10:11  Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.

Let’s look at a few of these Old Testament  stories, there are many to pick from.

Deuteronomy 7

These physical commands given to flesh Israel are types of what we are to exercise in the land and the kingdoms within us.  These commands that speak of the land are speaking of what is in our hearts and minds.  We must not fornicate worldly logic and mix it with the truth of God’s word and His commandments. Doing such is cankering the gold and that is what Babylon has indeed done.

Jas 5:3  Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you

Here are the commandments of the Lord about keeping our land clear of false doctrines.

Deu 7:1  When the LORD thy God shall bring thee into the land whither thou goest to possess it, and hath cast out many nations before thee, the Hittites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier than thou;

Deu 7:2  And when the LORD thy God shall deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them:

Deu 7:3  Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son.

Deu 7:4  For they will turn away thy son from following me, that they may serve other gods: so will the anger of the LORD be kindled against you, and destroy thee suddenly.

We cannot let this happen or like King Solomon we will apostasize and stop following the one true God.  We must do what seems harsh to the world and the carnal mind, we must utterly destroy all those idols and false images of God and burn them with His word.

Deu 7:5  But thus shall ye deal with them; ye shall destroy their altars, and break down their images, and cut down their groves, and burn their graven images with fire.

Deu 7:6  For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.

Deu 7:7  The LORD did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people:

We are to test all things and to try the spirits. If we really took this to heed and did this with ears to hear we would readily see the leaven in the doctrines being served to us and we would stop eating it.  Here is what we are commanded to do with all of the idols of flesh and carnal mindedness that would have us pervert the truth of God’s word and lead His people astray.

Deu 7:25 The graven images of their gods shall ye burn with fire: thou shalt not desire the silver or gold that is on them, nor take it unto thee, lest thou be snared therein: for it is an abomination to the LORD thy God.

Many are called and only few are chosen to be God’s Elect.  If we are God’s Elect once shown the truth, we will obey this commandment.  Beware the leaven of the Pharisees which simply means the doctrines of the churches of men.

Joshua 7

In the taking of Jericho, which in type is overcoming our old man within, we are given a harsh lesson on the seriousness of keeping God’s doctrine pure.  A man named Achan secretly brought back some gold and silver and other treasures and brought a curse upon Israel.  The man had to be put out from among them and that was the love of God.

Jos 7:20 And Achan answered Joshua, and said, Indeed I have sinned against the LORD God of Israel, and thus and thus have I done:

Jos 7:21 When I saw among the spoils a goodly Babylonish garment, and two hundred shekels of silver, and a wedge of gold of fifty shekels weight, then I coveted them, and took them; and, behold, they are hid in the earth in the midst of my tent, and the silver under it.

The silver and the gold are the false doctrines of Babylon that need to be purged not hid in our earth!

Jos 7:22 So Joshua sent messengers, and they ran unto the tent; and, behold, it was hid in his tent, and the silver under it.

Jos 7:23And they took them out of the midst of the tent, and brought them unto Joshua, and unto all the children of Israel, and laid them out before the LORD.

Jos 7:24And Joshua, and all Israel with him, took Achan the son of Zerah, and the silver, and the garment, and the wedge of gold, and his sons, and his daughters, and his oxen, and his asses, and his sheep, and his tent, and all that he had: and they brought them unto the valley of Achor.

Israel takes all this Babylonian stuff, the doctrines, the garment of self-righteousness, all the instruments of work and takes it outside the camp where it will be burned with fire.  God is very serious about His word.

Jos 7:25 And Joshua said, Why hast thou troubled us? the LORD shall trouble thee this day. And all Israel stoned him with stones, and burned them with fire, after they had stoned them with stones.

Jos 7:26And they raised over him a great heap of stones unto this day. So the LORD turned from the fierceness of his anger. Wherefore the name of that place was called, The valley of Achor, unto this day.

Leviticus 14

The law gave us in types and shadows the truth on how God’s Elect are to deal with false doctrines.  Those false doctrines are likened to leprosy, a deadly incurable disease.  All traces of leprosy had to be removed diligently and with thorough inspection. Such is the case with the doctrines of Jesus Christ, the way is narrow and just a little bit of leaven spoils the entire lump.  So removing all specks of error and carnality is of the utmost importance.  Here this truth in these commands in Leviticus 14, knowing God’s Elect are the priests and the house is the temple of God that is within us.

Lev 14:34  When ye be come into the land of Canaan, which I give to you for a possession, and I put the plague of leprosy in a house of the land of your possession;

God puts the false doctrines in our houses, He sends them to us in order to try us and see if we will keep His commandments about keeping His doctrines pure.

Lev 14:35 And he that owneth the house shall come and tell the priest, saying, It seemeth to me there is as it were a plague in the house:

Lev 14:36Then the priest shall command that they empty the house, before the priest go into it to see the plague, that all that is in the house be not made unclean: and afterward the priest shall go in to see the house:

Lev 14:37  And he shall look on the plague, and, behold, if the plague be in the walls of the house with hollow strakes, greenish or reddish, which in sight are lower than the wall;

Lev 14:38  Then the priest shall go out of the house to the door of the house, and shut up the house seven days:

Lev 14:39  And the priest shall come again the seventh day, and shall look: and, behold, if the plague be spread in the walls of the house;

I am abbreviating the story here as it is quite long and meticulous telling us just how serious this issue is.  We are to identify and get everything out of our house that is not the true gold of God’s word.

Lev 14:40 Then the priest shall command that they take away the stones in which the plague is, and they shall cast them into an unclean place without the city:

Lev 14:41 And he shall cause the house to be scraped within round about, and they shall pour out the dust that they scrape off without the city into an unclean place:

Scraping the walls to get every tiny speck of false doctrine out of our house.  This is how serious God is and it is amazing how blind we can be and rationalize away the seriousness of God’s word and call that love.

Lev 14:42  And they shall take other stones, and put them in the place of those stones; and he shall take other morter, and shall plaister the house.

Lev 14:43  And if the plague come again, and break out in the house, after that he hath taken away the stones, and after he hath scraped the house, and after it is plaistered;

Lev 14:44  Then the priest shall come and look, and, behold, if the plague be spread in the house, it is a fretting leprosy in the house: it is unclean.

Lev 14:45  And he shall break down the house, the stones of it, and the timber thereof, and all the morter of the house; and he shall carry them forth out of the city into an unclean place.

Lev 14:46  Moreover he that goeth into the house all the while that it is shut up shall be unclean until the even.

Lev 14:47  And he that lieth in the house shall wash his clothes; and he that eateth in the house shall wash his clothes.

Lev 14:54  This is the law for all manner of plague of leprosy, and scall,

The Amalekites – 1 Samuel 15

This is a story of King Saul, the rejected anointed first man “carnal” man Adam in all of us.  Saul is told to go and destroy the Amalekites and leave nothing alive and to kill all including animals, woman and children.

1Sa 15:3 Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass.

This again tells us how serious God is about cleansing our heavens and clearing the land of all that defiles and He is speaking of our doctrine.  But Saul disobeys and when confronted with this sin, tries to say He did obey the commandment and rationalizes the disobedience as we all do when we hold to false doctrines and keep holidays or believe lies lie the trinity.  We are serving another jesus and have not the living God abiding in us when we do such things.  You and me will all be this rebellious person until and unless the Lord grants to us mercy.

1Sa 15:20  And Saul said unto Samuel, Yea, I have obeyed the voice of the LORD, and have gone the way which the LORD sent me, and have brought Agag the king of Amalek, and have utterly destroyed the Amalekites.

Look at the justification for the sin.  He blames it on the others, what the crowd is doing, the majority and states they took these things so they could use them in their worship of God.  That is the sacrifice.  This is an abomination to the Lord as we saw in Deut 7.  We cannot take the practices and doctrines of the heathen and attach Jesus to it and they claim it is okay.   That is exactly what man has done with regards to keeping of times, days, and seasons such as Christmas, Easter and Birthdays.

1Sa 15:21But the people took of the spoil, sheep and oxen, the chief of the things which should have been utterly destroyed, to sacrifice unto the LORD thy God in Gilgal.

And then the prophet of the Lord has to correct the carnal minded rebellious Saul who will not be able to enter into the kingdom of God.

1Sa 15:22 And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.

The penalty is very harsh.  The Lord will have nothing to do with Saul or our rebellion and playing the harlot with this world.  The way is indeed narrow.

1Sa 15:23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.

And Samuel, a type of God’s Elect does what we are commanded to do and that is to separate and no longer even eat a meal with a so called brother who brings in false doctrines.

1Sa 15:26 And Samuel said unto Saul, I will not return with thee: for thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, and the LORD hath rejected thee from being king over Israel.

Samuel also then does what Saul did not do and put the heathen king to death with a sword.

1Sa 15:33And Samuel hewed Agag in pieces before the LORD in Gilgal.

There are several more stories in the Old Testament that tell of this same commandment to guard our hearts and not let this false deception of “love” and “tolerance” enter into the camp of Israel.  We truly must take heed of our doctrine and try the spirits to see if they are of God.  We must never lose track of the definition for the love of God, it is not pleasing men.

1Ti 4:16 Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.

CONCLUSION

Many that come into knowledge of the truth will fall away.  We all will do it as we must live by every word.  But you can be sure if a message is popular with many, than it is likely not a true doctrine of Jesus Christ.  His doctrines don’t please flesh and are a stumbling block.  Don’t let this happen to you.

2Ti_4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears

We must examine ourselves to see if we are in the true faith.  Many have gone astray, gone the way of Baalam who for gain and acceptance disobeyed God and caused Israel to commit whoredeom with the world.  We always remember the talking donkey story but may fail to realize that later on, Baalam did indeed succeed in causing God’s Elect to commitment whoredom and mix carnal logic with God’s truth.  We must get it out of our fellowship and have nothing to do with it.

Num_31:16 Behold, these caused the children of Israel, through the counsel of Balaam, to commit trespass against the LORD in the matter of Peor, and there was a plague (spiritual leprosy) among the congregation of the LORD. 

Don’t let this plague come on you, take heed to thy doctrine.  We are multiple warnings against committing this error and allowing it to overtake us in our narrow walk.

Jud 1:11Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.

Rev_2:14  But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.

Not everyone or everything is Holy as the carnal mind and spirit of Korah will want to claim.  Woe unto us when we water down the word of God to be accepted by those around us and remove from ourselves the persecution that inevitably arises when we stand firm.  If we are not worthy to carry the cross of Christ, we simply are not worthy of Him and will not be in the first resurrection.

Mat 10:38  And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.

That is really what is happening when we give in to the schemes of Satan and fall for this deception of false love and make fitting in and being accepted the will of our other jesus.  Anything we do to take away the reproach from others and the enmity the world will have against God’s Elect we are making our own bread and have left the doctrines of Jesus Christ.   This is self righteousness and we had best take heed of this error and trap.

Isa 4:1  And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach.

Wearing a coat of many colors as given to us by God will cause the world to hate us even without a cause.

Joh 15:25  But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.

God’s Elect will follow their Lord and they too shall be hated without a cause.  Anyone compromising the doctrines of Christ is seeking to avoid carrying the cross.  Unless they are given repentance, we should keep ourselves withdrawn from all such men that call themselves brothers.

1Ti 6:3  If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;

1Ti 6:4  He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings,

1Ti 6:5  Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.

So be caution and keep your guard up knowing that many deceivers have gone out into this world.  We must know our bibles and stay in fellowship with the Body of Christ if we are going to stay on this narrow path.  Remember, the way is hard, it is narrow, we cannot take out our part of this book and living by every word.  If we find ourselves doing things to please men and fit in with those in the world, keeping holidays as an example, then you can be sure one has strayed off the path.    Here is a very serious warning to all regarding sound doctrine.

Rev 22:18  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:

Rev 22:19  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.

Lord willing I will no longer be blaspheming His name and preaching false doctrine like I did in my former ignorance.  The true doctrines are so much more than just the salvation of all men and His Elect, we must be given to go beyond this milk if we have hope of being in the first resurrection.  The fire of God is burning in my belly and the zeal of His house has consumed my old man and has led me to become a speaker of the true gospel that is founded on sound doctrine.

Tit_2:1  But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine:

Preaching Foolishness

foolishness of preachingContext:  This note is a message I sent to a Babylonian Minister of a large orthodox Christian church.  This man is genuinely a nice man as men go, but of course we know that no one is good, no one not even one!  The pastor of the church I once attended let me know he was all up to talk about his sermons and any issues I have with them .  His sheep will not follow the voice of a stranger.    

It is by the foolishness of such preaching that the few chosen will hear the words of truth and be set free from the bondage of Babylon.  A brother in Christ suggested I share this as it may well edify a lost sheep the Lord may bring to this website seeking the truth in the Scriptures.

Dear B______________

I listened to your sermon last Sunday online as I am most curious to know the things my wife is listening to so I as her God ordained head may teach her the truth the Lord willing.  My motivation is the love of God with this being clearly and succinctly defined for us what the love of God is.

 1Jn 5:3  For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous

 And the commandments of the Lord include to come out of Babylon and to separate from the world and this is especially true for those that bring other doctrines than the doctrines of Jesus Christ.

2Jn 1:9  Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.

2Jn 1:10  If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:

2Jn 1:11  For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

Wow, this seems so harsh and unloving to the carnal mind.  Yet keeping our doctrine pure and un-defiled is a very big deal for the church of Jesus Christ.  There is a real reason why the Lord has us to do this but we must take very seriously all false doctrines and not allow any such leaven to enter into our spiritual houses and fellowship.  It is FLESH and the wisdom of men that have put tolerance and agreeing to disagree above the doctrines of Christ.

2Co 6:14  Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

2Co 6:15  And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

2Co 6:16  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.

2Co 6:17  Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,

Those that bring this “fornication”, the mixing of flesh and spirit, the mixing of worldly wisdom with the words of God are to be put out of our fellowship if we are God’s Elect.  The way truly is narrow and few there be shall find it.  Accommodating fornication be it physical or spiritual is not love, it is deception.   Here is Paul showing us how to love people by obeying the commandments of God.

1Co 5:4  In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ,

1Co 5:5  To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.

1Co 5:6  Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?

1Co 5:7  Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:

This has been a long build up here but I want you, GOD WILLING, to understand and to see just how serious it is to know and to teach only sound doctrine.

1Ti 4:16  Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.

1Jn 4:1  Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

We must know the doctrine of Christ and make sure we do not corrupt it.  Yet that is the very thing Babylon does, it takes the things of God, the true valuables which are the doctrines, the very gold, the truth and cankers it with fleshly and demonic wisdom.

Jas 5:3  Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.

Where the gold and silver is cankered and corrupted by the carnal doctrines of men, God’s Elect should get far away as it it will only lead us into compromise yet the road is very narrow.

Rom 16:17  Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them

I am hoping  B________ that maybe God has prepared your heart for the truth and opened your ears of understanding.  My ears were opened by hearing from someone the world would disdain and think not could possibly be an angel of God.  But that is how God works, He chooses the foolish things of this world to confound the wisdom of wise men who walk after the flesh.

1Co 1:27  But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;

The OT is not a history lesson

It will blow your mind when you are given eyes to see this.  Now I hope the Lord will open your ears to consider some of the things you preached on Sunday.  While it is a great idea to study the prophets, we must keep some fundamental truts in mind as we read anything in the Old Testament.  Those things include these things:

1.  All the OT is an ensample, a spiritual lesson for God’s very elect today

1Co 10:1 Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the AGE (not world) are come.

Those outside the given covenant of faith will not understand any of this, the entire book will be sealed.  When their fear of god is based on man’s traditions, then the book will not be understood.  They will stumble and stagger in spiritual darkness and this is all the Lord’s doing.

Isa 29:9  Stay yourselves, and wonder; cry ye out, and cry: they are drunken, but not with wine; they stagger, but not with strong drink.

Isa 29:10  For the LORD hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he covered.  (The Lord puts the multitudes into spiritual darkness)

Isa 29:11  And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed: 

Isa 29:12  And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned.

Isa 29:13  Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:

The carnal doctrines of men teach eternal torment which is a fear of the Lord based on the precepts of men and is the opposite of the truth.  Anyone teaching or believing the fear of God based on this precept has a sealed book for which they will have no understanding.

The Old Testament is a shadow of the truth.  As a shadow it is not the whole truth but points to the true light.  We must take the whole council, the sum of thy word to know the truth that will set us free.

2.  Man must live by every word God has spoken and that includes all the things written in the bible

Luk 4:4  And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.

1Co 3:21  Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours;

1Co 3:22  Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours;

The characters in the Old Testament and the stories and ensamples they portray are words that each of us will live by in our appointed times.  We cannot add to or take away from the sum of God’s word. All things are ours and we will live them.  What blessing to the one who understand this immutable spiritual truth.

3.  The OT was not written for the people that lived then, it is not given to us as a history lesson

1Pe 1:10  Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you:

1Pe 1:11  Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow.

1Pe 1:12  Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.

We are yet carnal when we approach these words as a history lesson and apply them to someone else, i.e. the flesh jews who lived back then.  Those words of the prophets were written for God’s very Elect upon whom the ends of the carnal age has now come.

4.  Christ speaks in parables and so it is with and thru His prophets

Hos 12:10  I have also spoken by the prophets, and I have multiplied visions, and used similitudes, by the ministry of the prophets.

The Bible does not mean what is says, it means what it means.  That meaning is hidden from carnal eyes and ears and is only GIVEN to the few that God has chosen to give it to.  Christ spoke in parables to HIDE the meaning, so it is to this very day and these words of God have not passed away.

Mat 13:10  And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?

Mat 13:11  He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.

Mat 13:12  For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.

Mat 13:13  Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.

Here is who will believe, who will have the ears to hear and the eyes to see.

Rom 11:7  What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded

Rom 11:8  (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.

1Co 2:7  But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:

You spoke last Sunday about God loving wicked people. 

That is very true B________God does love wicked people and one day all will have been given the faith to know that even this Proverb is true and that God purposefully has made people wicked.

Pro 16:4  The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.

This refers to all men, you and me and everybody that has ever been born into a marred vessel of clay.  This is all part of God’s plan spelled out in the Scriptures for those give ears to hear and eyes to see the truth.  And that is not very many, it is indeed very few.  But this is all God’s plan, He makes us stray from His ways.  Yet the carnal man will think this truth is foolishness and they will not be able to understand it despite clear Scripture.

Isa 63:17  O LORD, why hast thou (YOU GOD) made us to err from thy ways, and hardened our heart from thy fear? Return for thy servants’ sake, the tribes of thine inheritance.

Rom 8:20  For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,

Rom 8:21  Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

 Who is doing all of this?  Who is the cause behind these erring from His ways?  It is God doing it all.  He is the Potter and we are the clay.  Many will recite those verses but yet deny Christ daily by claiming He nor God are causing ALL THINGS to happen.  These doing this denying are at best mere carnal babes in Christ, it simply has not been given to them to see the plain truth in Scripture.

Rom 9:15  For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.

Rom 9:16  So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.

Rom 9:17  For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew my power in thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth.

Rom 9:18  Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardeneth.

IT IS NOT HIM WHO WILLS.  IT IS NOT MANs DELUSION OF A FREE WILL, it is God who shows mercy.  Amazing how stubborn flesh is to the clear truth of God’s word.  The rest of this chapter answers the carnal question we all then ask.  Which is why does God then still find fault.  God does it all, there is no YOU anywhere in the new covenant.  Go read Ezekiel 36 and you will see it is all I WILL SAYS THE LORD.   Look at all the I will’s and the absence of you will’s.

Eze 36:23  And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, saith the Lord GOD, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes.

Eze 36:24  For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.

Eze 36:25  Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.

Eze 36:26  A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.

Eze 36:27  And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.

Eze 36:28  And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.

Eze 36:29  I will also save you from all your uncleannesses: and I will call for the corn, and will increase it, and lay no famine upon you.

Eze 36:30  And I will multiply the fruit of the tree, and the increase of the field, that ye shall receive no more reproach of famine among the heathen.

The Scriptures are true and as Jonah 2:9 says,   SALVATION IS OF THE LORD.    I hope you will begin to see that man has no role in salvation whatsoever.  It is 100% of the Lord.  We don’t even choose to have faith, that is given to us and is given to only a very few in this life in the flesh.  (John 6:44, John 6:65, etc)  Oh it is a mystery B_______, one that makes perfect sense once we are given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God.  They are given to such a very few all of which serves God’s purposes.

1Co 2:6  Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought:

1Co 2:7  But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:

1Co 2:8  Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

1Co 2:9  But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

1Co 2:10  But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.

The carnal mind cannot comprehend the truth, the true things of God are indeed foolishness to the wisdom of men.  Hence all the doctrines and beliefs of orthodox Christianity, all of them, are devoid of any truth.

Isa 3:1  For, behold, the Lord, the LORD of hosts, doth take away from Jerusalem and from Judah the stay and the staff, the whole stay of bread, and the whole stay of water,

If the Lord ordains to happen, we will sit down and review doctrine, the core beliefs and positions of orthodox Christianity.  I have come to see that Isaiah 3:1 is true and there is not a single doctrine, not even one, which I learned in a church that is true.  All was leavened and pointed to another jesus.

God Is Not Dependent Upon Man

You also spoke Sunday and speak often as if the will of Almighty God depends upon the actions of man.  Such is not the case B______, that is the wisdom of men and is indeed another gospel and a false jesus.  You quoted Psalm 139 today.  I am not sure you really got the significance of verse 12 that both darkness and light are the same to God.

Psa 139:12  Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.

Isa 45:7  I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.

Psa 139:8  If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.

We are clay in His hands.  If we are deceived it is the Lord’s doing.  If we are walking in truth, it is the Lord’s doing.  ALL THINGS ARE OF GOD and I am sure you know the many Scriptures that state that.  BELIEVE THEM.

He is working all things for the counsel of His will and depends not upon any man to bring about what He has already declared for each of us.  I wish you had read on to verse 16.

Psa 139:16  Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.

Yep, even this verse is true but the carnal mind will always deny it and limit God.  Our entire lives, what we will do has already been written.  That is an all powerful God that the carnal mind cannot understand or believe unless and until we are given the gift of faith.

Isa 46:9  Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me,

Isa 46:10  Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:

The end has been declared from the beginning.  God’s counsel shall stand and it matters not what a piece of clay thinks or does.  And His counsel and pleasure is to save all men and that is exactly what He will do.  But very few are GIVEN to believe the report of Isaiah.

All that we do, think or say is given to us by God.  He is the potter and we are the clay.  But you do not believe that B______.  Your idea of sovereignty is that God does not have a boss but that lots of things happen outside of God’s causing them to happen.  In your theology, God is at the mercy of nature, the devil and even the actions and thoughts of His own creation.  Utter and complete hogwash, the epitome of unbelief.

You cited this verse in your sermon today and this is a good segue to make a point and God willing set you on the path of truth.

Psa 37:23  The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.

Do you see that word “good” in that verse?  That word was added by carnal translators, the word “good” is not in the Scriptures it was added by men to support their false doctrines.  God is not just working all the good things B_____, He is working them all!

Isa 45:6  That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else. Isa 45:7  I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.

Eph 1:11  In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:

Rom 11:36  For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.

It was incredible.  You mentioned the recent flooding in Colorado and then denied the Lord Jesus by claiming God is not causing all things and is at the whim of Mother Nature.  B_______, God is causing all things, even evil things and calamities.  There are zero exceptions.

Amo 3:6  Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? shall there be evil in a city, and the LORD hath not done it?

God allows nothing.  He causes all things. He even works evil for good.

Gen 50:20  But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.

When you make such statements and hesitate to give God the credit and the glory for all things that happen, including calamities, sickness and disease, you are preaching another gospel and are yet carnal.  You are then preaching unbelief in the one true God and feeding the carnal mind of men who will then need to fear things that God is not causing.  There is nothing God is not doing and directly causing to happen.  You name it, the Scriptures and the sum of thy word is truth, tells us it is from God.

Deu 32:39  See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.

You mentioned last week that Satan causes division.  No he does not.  God is doing it, Satan is merely a servant of God, doing exactly what the Lord commands him to do.

Luk 12:51  Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division:

Mat 10:34  Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.

Mat 10:35  For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

Mat 10:36  And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.

Who brings division?  Who sets people at variance with others?  It is God thru the Lord.  This is who Satan is and how he came into being.

Job 26:13  By his spirit he hath garnished the heavens; his hand hath formed the crooked serpent.

Isa 54:16  Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy.

I won’t get into it here but that doctrine we all hear in churches about Satan being an angel kicked out of heaven is a lie.  You can believe the false teachings of men and the traditions of orthodox Christianity or you can simply if granted the faith, believe the Lord and His words. Christ said Satan was a murderer from the beginning, he was created for that very purpose.  I do hope you will consider what I am telling you and go and test the doctrine and the spirits I am conveying.  By two or three witnesses shall ever matter be established and all that I have shared herewith has multiple confirming witnesses and create no conflicts with the true doctrines of Christ.

You said something else that was simply false.  You said that “judgment does not transform us”.  Oh yes it does B_______.  In fact judgment is the process by which we are saved.  Salvation means going thru the judgment of God and enduring the wrath of God against our old man and the lust of our flesh.  That is the very mystery, the strange ACT it is called by which Christ is formed in us and salvation comes to Zion.  Judgment is the way of salvation and it begins at the house of God, His chosen few, the very elect.  The rest will be judged later at the second resurrection.

1Pe 4:17  For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

Rev 15:8  And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.

Isa 1:27  Zion shall be redeemed with judgment, and her converts with righteousness.

Exo 6:6  Wherefore say unto the children of Israel, I am the LORD, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will rid you out of their bondage, and I will redeem you with a stretched out arm, and with great judgments:

This is the mystery B________that FEW are given to see and to understand.  Salvation comes only by coming thru the judgment of God.  Any doctrine that speaks to a rapture or avoiding God’s judgment against our old man and our sins, is a different gospel.  Christ did not die in our place, He died so He could then die with us and that is how salvation comes, we are crucified with Christ.  That is the meaning of the law of offerings in Leviticus in type and shadow.

Judgment is the only way we will learn true righteousness.  Every other way, the ways taught in all the orthodox churches and all the seminaries is a lie built upon a mixture of God’s word in the flesh with the ways of this world.

Isa 26:9  With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early: for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.

But we must come to know what the earth is and what is being spoken about in the parables and symbols of Scripture.

Jer 22:29  O earth, earth, earth, hear the word of the LORD.

Until we are given ears to hear by Christ, our judgment has not begun and are still in Babylon even though we claim to be His.

You spoke often of God’s mercy yet with the next breadth would deny that with you doctrine of hell and eternal punishment.  The hell doctrine you teach and believe is not merciful it is a damn lie B__________.  Believing such is a guarantee to remain in bondage as a prisoner in Babylon and be able learning but never able to come to knowledge of the truth.

There is no double standard B________. God wants us to be just like Him and that is why we are told to always forgive.  Mercy indeed is forever and one you are given to believe the true gospel and understand God’s purposes and ways, then you will believe this verse which your sermons show you do not believe.

Luk 6:35  But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.

Luk 6:36  Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.

The Lord is faithful even when we are not.  You spoke of that also and that was your take away from the entire book of Isaiah.  Yet B______ you deny that statement when you believe and teach in anything but the salvation of all men.  The Lord said His mercy will endure forever and it will.  You are speaking with a forked tongue when you speak like this and we all do it, so I am not judging you but merely showing you the truth in love.  Someone has to show us the truth that has walked the road before us.

Rev 19:10  And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

You were and are right about one thing.  Jonah is representative of you and me.  You see one of the mysteries of God is just that and Christ said it, more than once.

Mat 4:4  But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

Every word.  We will all live every word but in the order and sequences ordained of God.  That is a big all-powerful God who has declared all of that already and will bring it to pass.  But I hope you will begin to see and know that the Word of God is spirit and the flesh profits it NOTHING.

Joh 6:63  It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

The message in Scripture is that we will live by every word. There are only two people that matter, the two witnesses, and we are both of them.   We are those people in Scripture.  We are Cain and Abel.  We are King Saul and David.  We are a false witness and then we are a true witness but all happens in the times appointed by God before the world was formed.

Jonah is just one of many that we will live and experiences.  So all men, beginning with God’s Elect will first resist going to Nineveh and preaching the TRUE DOCTRINES of Christ.  We will run from that but God has ordained a life for us and ultimately our trials in the sea (symbol for the flesh) will lead us to a point where we will cry out to God for repentance will shall be granted.  Then we will go to Nineveh and the symbolic cities and nations within us to preach the word of god into the four corners of the earth.  But we will need to learn where the kingdom of God is and what is this earth the prophets and Christ spoke about?

Luk 17:20  And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:

Luk 17:21  Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

If God has prepared your heart and opened your ears then I would love to share more with you.  I have learned to not even think above what is written and my ONLY source is the Bible, the very sum of His word is truth.  Anything else is a lie.

Psa 119:160 The sum of Your word is truth (not some of the word is truth)

1Co 4:6  And these things, brethren, I have in a figure transferred to myself and to Apollos for your sakes; that ye might learn in us not to think above that which is written, that no one of you be puffed up for one against another.

I will end this here.  I hope the Lord will open your eyes of understanding and allow you to begin to grow in the true knowledge of God.  To start we have to drink milk which includes knowing and believing in the salvation of all men.

1Pe 2:2  As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:

If we cannot even see that, then we have no chance of coming to the knowledge of the truth.  We must move on beyond the milk but that is where we all must start as babes.  I would be happy to share with you this milk and show it to you in the Scriptures and show you where carnal man has screwed up (as God ordained) to twist his word to support this damnable lie of eternal hell.  But I also have learned how few God has ordained to come to knowledge of the truth and how few hearts have been prepared and ears opened to hear the truth.

Psa 10:17  LORD, thou hast heard the desire of the humble: thou wilt prepare their heart, thou wilt cause thine ear to hear:

It is all in the Lord’s hands.  He needs nothing from you or me.  He is directing all our steps and giving us both every word we shall speak.

Jer 10:23  O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps.

Pro 16:1  The preparations of the heart in man, and the answer of the tongue, is from the LORD.

Pro 20:24  Man’s goings are of the LORD; how can a man then understand his own way?

A disciple of Christ who knows what a wretched man he is,

Aliens and Strangers in the World

Psalm 102:6 I am like a pelican of the wilderness: I am like an owl of the desert.

You won’t see very many pelican’s in the wilderness or many owls in the desert.  And such is the case with God’s very Elect.  This is a rewrite of a post I initially posted in 2010 when I was still blinded to the truth of salvation for all men.  I was seeing in the Scriptures explanations for many of the things I was experiencing as I  was being dragged out of Babylon and into the marvelous light of Christ.  I did not know what was happening at that time.  I hope it is an encouragement to the brethren who are learning to be joyous amidst increasing rejection and trials in our lives.

John 15:19  If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you

When God decides to drag one out of Babylon and draw them near to Christ, there is nothing a weak vessel of clay can do.  It will happen, God will accomplish His chosen purposes.   Such disciples will find themselves increasingly at odds with the world and those that live in it.  As we begin to obey God and are chastened of him,  the world will truly come to hate us.  This is the cost of discipleship, this is the cost of finding your life, you will lose it and it will cost you everything.  What is a man to do?  Praise God, that is what.

1 Peter 4:12-13  Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you;  13 but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy.

What a great passage of Scripture this is from the Apostle Peter.  I praise God for this Scripture which explains what is going on in the lives of the chosen and faithful Elect of God.  It is not easy at times to rejoice in the midst of suffering and rejection of the world.  My flesh likes to be liked and wants to fit in with the crowd.  But it ain’t going to happen based on the will of God.    The passage of Scripture gets even better with the very next verse.

1 Peter 4:14  If you are reproached for the name of Christ, blessed are you, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you.

I believe these Scriptures now totally without any doubt.  I never had any real persecution until recently and that only when the true gospel was spoken for the first time from my mouth and believed in my heart.  Life since that spiritual healing has been nothing but a daily trial but it all has provided confirmation of the Scriptures and truth in God’s written word.  This in no way belittles the horrific persecution many Christians have even identifying with the name of Jesus.  I have several Chinese students living in my house now and places like that and in many Muslim dominated countries, being a Christian, a Babylonian one or a disciple indeed; all comes with a real risk of physical death which takes persecution to a whole new level.  The persecutions and the fiery trials like most of God’s living words will be foremost applicable inwardly, in the Spirit.   When God puts enmity between His chosen few and everyone else that is yet carnal, separation occurs.  This has been God’s plan from the beginning.

Gen 3:15  And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. 

Gen 37:4  And when his brethren saw that their father loved him more than all his brethren, they hated him, and could not speak peaceably unto him. 

And the plan and way of God has not changes as Paul tells us:

2Ti 3:12  Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. 

What may not seem joyful to the carnal mind is indeed a blessing when one can see with spiritual eyes.  I just don’t seem to fit in anywhere it seems.  But this should not surprise me or anyone that God has so blessed by choosing them and imparting His gift of faith.  I did not decide to feel this way,  it was something that came upon me as I was pulled out of my worldly focus.

ACTS 13:17  The God of this people of Israel chose our fathers, and exalted the people when they dwelt AS STRANGERS in the land of Egypt. 

The children of God have all been chosen from the foundation of this world.  The little flock Jesus spoke about is the same as the Elect of God spoken of throughout the New Testament Epistles.  It is God who plucks us out of the world and lifts us up.  He exalts us in our appointed time and we had best get ready for the fireworks that will soon follow as ordained of the Lord.

Speaking before His death, Jesus Christ told Pilate and the Pharisees that He was not of this world.  The same goes for His true disciples.  While we live here in Egypt, likened unto living in the world, and await His return — we must face hostility from wicked men and the powers of darkness.   There is war going on between these dark forces and the true church (the woman) and the battles and skirmishes are intensifying.  These take place in our hearts,  it is a battle for the throne room that lives inside of us,  the very temples of the Holy Spirit.

Revelation 12:17 And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make WAR with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ

Try to live a godly life in Christ Jesus and come out of the world and testify to the true gospel and you had better be ready for WAR. While I thought I understood this a year ago,  I have gotten a quick course of indoctrination of the hatred and persecution this true gospel will receive, especially from the religious crowd.  The Christian walk is not a leisurely stroll skipping down a lane filled with candy canes and lollipops.   The destroyers, the plunderers, the testers; aka the enemy has placed a big fat target on you.

1 Peter 2:11 Beloved, I urge you as aliens and strangers to abstain from fleshly lusts which wage war against the soul

We must overcome, the way is very narrow.  Without us putting on the weapons of the Lord Jesus we stand no chance against this enemy.  These weapons are given to the Elect by faith,  but we must put them on every day.  It is so easy to revert back to the flesh and engage in fleshly warfare which is a sure fired way to be defeated and exhausted and not bearing the peaceable fruit of righteousness.  I got schooled on this yesterday in engaging in fleshly combat.  I am sorry for not holding up my end of the bargain.

I forget in the heat of the battle and hope you don’t forget.  Our battle is NEVER against flesh and blood,  it is against the powers of darkness that lives in and works through the carnal minds and flesh of unconverted men.   Victory is assured because Jesus Christ has already won the ultimate battle,  we just need to follow His foot steps and “get in on the victory”.

Colossians 2:15 Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it

A recurring theme I am seeing in my fellowship with others is the frustration and suffering arising from the constant attacks for acting on their faith and separating from the world and testifying on the gospel truths that have been revealed.  How we respond is actually more important than the attacks themselves.  The attacks are promised to all that God chooses.  This is how He test our faith and refines us in this furnace of affliction.

ISA 48:10  Behold, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction

We need to be very careful as I have learned the enemy is always right there to rise up our flesh when we are attacked.  Of course it is human nature (carnal minded) to respond defensively, but this is the same nature we are told to put to death and walk in newness of the Spirit.  We have to operate in the divine nature and learn from our Master and follow His example.  Jesus never fought back in anger, revenge or retaliation.   His servants do not fight in the flesh either.

John 18:36 Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, then My servants would be fighting so that I would not be handed over to the Jews; but as it is, My kingdom is not of this realm.”

The brethren must quit reacting in the flesh when these attacks come.  That is exactly what Satan wants.  The enemy will come to stir up the pot and get our flesh to come alive as by doing so,  our testimony will lose its power and we will lose our inner peace.  We must stay in the spirit, trust God and fight these battles in the heavenly places.  Pride and ego will always be resisted by the Spirit of God.

2 Cor 10:3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh

I have many things to learn here still; and writing this is going to help me call to mind in my battle preparations for the next skirmish.  We have to fight but we cannot fight in the flesh.  We can no longer afford to ignore the devil and his schemes that come before us to test our hearts.  Our flesh response needs to become a NON RESPONSE.  Another words we need to get to the point where our flesh is dead and does not fight back and argue these things with those who do not yet have eyes to see.  If we stay in the Spirit, God says we will win over the hearts of many, if we trust Him, wait on Him and let Him perform the work.  He is the opener of all eyes, it is not us.

Worldly Contrast

Peter tells of the reaction our coming out of Babylon will invoke for those around us whose minds remain on worldly things and trusting in the power of the flesh.  As many of you know,  it is near impossible to explain what is going on to your critics.  The carnal mind cannot receive these deep things of God.

1 Peter 4:3-5 For we have spent enough of our past lifetime in doing the will of the Gentiles—when we walked in lewdness, lusts, drunkenness, revelries, drinking parties, and abominable idolatries. 4 In regard to these, they think it strange that you do not run with them in the same flood of dissipation, speaking evil of you.

Those that have been called out of the world by the great mercy of the Lord know that we all used to do the very same things those still engaged with the carnal minded and worldly wisdom focus.  Not a single one of us figured it out on our own.  It was and is all a gift of revelation from God by His divine choice which is the grace of God.  Before grace appeared and our eyes were opened,  we walked, talked and acted worldly in our former ignorance when we ourselves did not know God.  But now that we know God,  we no longer want to do them in our hearts.  Peter explained.

1 Peter 1:13-16 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; 14As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance:  15But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;  16Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy

Look at the words Peter used to describe what he called a flood of dissipations in the opening verse.  His short list included:  lewdness, lusts,  drunkenness, revelries,  drinking parties,  abominable and idolatries, which is a wide range of worldly behaviors.   Most of these things are held in high esteem and practiced by those still living in the world.   Even many religious and professing Christians practice these very same things with the result being there is no distinction between them and the true unbelieving of the world.   Sure there may be less external evidence (smoking, drinking and cussing),  but inside the hearts there can be many idols and lusts for the things the world craves.  The things that truly defile us are what live in our hearts and we speak out in our words.  Galatians 5:22 contains an excellent listing of the fruits of the flesh and the carnal mind.  When walking in the flesh the things we speak will often begin with the words I, ME or MY.  In the conversation about the end times,  Jesus gave us some wise words.

Luke 21:34 Be on guard, so that your hearts will not be weighted down with dissipation and drunkenness and the worries of life, and that day will not come on you suddenly like a trap

Before I came to know and believe in the absolute sovereignty of God in directing all of a man’s steps and even creating evil and the wicked for the day of doom,  I worried a lot about things.  I could fake it really good on the outside but inside death and worry was still working thru me.  I had not yet received the gift of faith and the healing that only comes to God’s elect in their appointed times.  I truly believe these verse and all that it means when we extrapolate it out to all that occurs on this earth and in our very lives.

Matthew 10:29  Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father.

But we are worth far more than sparrows such that this following verse is also totally believable to those in the true faith.

Proverbs 16:9  A man’s heart plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps

If we fail to walk in the spirit believing in the power of God and remain yet carnal we will not be sober and alert for the voice of the shepherd to lead us.  We must not fall asleep and allow the thief to come and reenter our houses.  There are a flood of worldly ddissipations and carnal distractions that compete for our attention every day. 

 Evil and wickedness, much of it now accepted as common every day lifestyle  is competing for our minds and attention every day.  Images, sounds, TV, commercials, friends, and the very demons that roam this earth are constantly putting thoughts to our minds which can entice us into sin and the ways of the world.  These thoughts all appeal to our personal gratification.  It is all about us and what can be done for I, ME or MY flesh.  These are the very thoughts we must take captive to the obedience of the Lord Jesus.

2 Corinthians 10:5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ

When we stop pursuing these worldly things the world you know will think you are very strange.  The new person that you now are in Christ Jesus will not be understood by them unless they also have been blessed by God’s mercy and have received the revelation of this gospel by grace.  I believe this is why those who have come out of Babylon are yearning for fellowship with like-minded brethren.  It is very encouraging to know that we are not along albeit we are few.  There is yet a remnant saved by grace in all generations.

Romans 11:4-6 But what does the divine response say to him? “I have reserved for Myself seven thousand men who have not bowed the knee to Baal.”  5 Even so then, at this present time there is a remnant according to the election of grace. 6 And if by grace, then it is no longer of works; otherwise grace is no longer grace.

I thank God for bringing me members of HIS BODY that provide edification and encouragement.  We do need to stick together and walk in unity of the ONE true faith with the ONE Spirit we have been given.  Know that if division comes,  we need to be very careful and not be deceived by those who flatter for the sake of selfish ambition.

In making the transition from Babylon my flesh has taken a beating.  It hurt me very much and frustrated me even more to be rejected initially and then to have the glory of this gospel of good news shunned and scoffed at by those of the false circumcision.  But we will learn to glory in this rejection and know that these events are a good sign of our salvation and the workings of God.

Philippians 1:27-28 Only conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or remain absent, I will hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;  28in no way alarmed by your opponents–which is a sign of destruction for them, but of salvation for you, and that too, from God.

It is an honor to be counted worthy to suffer shame for the namesake of Jesus and this good news gospel.  I am still getting over being called strange and being accused of being mentally ill or having a demon.  The very same things happened to Jesus and all that walked before us and we can take comfort in those examples.  Through Christ we will overcome the world!  Let’s stick together, we must whether we be present with one another or not,  we must stay as One Spirit.

I see some things coming in my life and the Lord is preparing me to give an account and defend this gospel in front of modern-day councils.  I take to heart the words of the Apostles that went before us.

ACTS 5:41  So they went on their way from the presence of the Council, rejoicing that they had been considered worthy to suffer shame for His name

This walk can be a lonely walk at times.  Those are not just cliches, they are are promise from the Lord Himself.  We truly are strangers in this world and will never fit in with the crowd.  These words bring me comfort to face the growing rejection and scorn coming towards me.

John 15:18-20   If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.   If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.   Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you*; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.

Whatever the Lord has in store for us know that the blessing we have received by this gift of faith will come with a cost and cross to be carried.  I pray that all of us will be given the grace to endure these sufferings and the work of Christ will work richly in our hearts and every purpose of His will may come to pass to the glory of God.

We are the salt of this earth.  Chosen by God, as the winnowing fan in His hand and sent to speak His word that is a fire.  May we stay the course, be encouraged in our faith and strengthened by our fellowship and not lose our saltiness and the unique attributes that God has given to each of us individually.

Luke 14:34-35  “Salt is good; but if the salt has lost its flavor, how shall it be seasoned?  35 It is neither fit for the land nor for the dunghill, but men throw it out. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!”

Lying Signs and Wonders

beast withinMat 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

The end of the age (AION) comes at midnight the darkest part of the night.  It comes at the very peak of our spiritual deception when we are madly inflamed on wine and staggering in spiritual drunkenness.

Mat 25:6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.

Our falling away into God’s strong delusion must precede the coming of the Lord to us the second time for salvation without sin. We will be spiritually dead worshiping the beast within before the Lord will drag us to Him and suddenly appear and bring salvation to us.

Heb 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
Heb 9:28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

We will never understand any of this until after we have lived it.  We will look behind where we have come with new God given ears to hear and then we shall also see the plan and purposes of the Lord.  None of us will see spiritually until our day of judgment. All of us will be shut up in spiritual darkness until then. Judgment first comes to the house of God as Peter wrote and it is this process that will awaken us to the true righteousness of Christ.

1Pe 4:17  For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God

In the meantime those called of God will be deceived by lying signs and wonders and the many false prophets The Lord sends into our lives.  Christ said His purpose in coming was for judgment and that would be brought by making those that claim to see blind.

Joh 9:39 And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.

God’s Elect, the chosen few will be the first redeemed from the earth and will live by every word God has spoken. This means they will first be deceived by the false ministers of Babylon and the lying signs and wonders that God causes that make the deception and spiritual blindness so pervasive. We as His Elect will first claim we see but will be totally spiritually blind just like all of Orthodox Christianity.  However, in our appointed time, those few chosen of God will come out of the harlot.  It will take some time for all the plagues of God to destroy our carnal mind and all the deceptions we had trusted and had learned.

This woman is the apostate church that represents orthodox Christianity that will be very appealing on the outside arrayed with all the fine things of God yet her hands hold a cup full of all her impure and defiled doctrines of devils that mix the things of God with the things of this world.

Rev 17:4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:

Rev 17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

The harlot and the signs and wonders we see while part of this harlot are very convincing. This post will focus on these lying signs and wonders that are used of God to deceive us and keep us in the bondage of Babylon for our appointed 70 years. Some may have an ear to hear and will be edified by knowing these things are true.

The Falling Away (ours) Must Come First

Evening always precedes the morning.  Darkness comes before the light.  God is calling light out of the darkness He purposefully creates.

Gen 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
Gen 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
Gen 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

The way salvation comes and the eternal (“aionious” in the Greek) life that comes with it, that is knowing Christ and the Father is that we individually must fall away first into great spiritual deception. There is no avoiding it. All who come in the presence of Christ first fall backwards.

Isa 28:13 But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.

Paul who himself had an astonishing experience of first walking in strong delusion, mentioned this often to the early believers. The falling away must come first!

2Th 2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,

2Th 2:2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

2Th 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

2Th 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

2Th 2:5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

Living by every word includes falling away. The beast that we all are has to first be exalted onto God’s throne in our hearts and worshiped by us and then this same beast, the man of sin will need to be revealed to us in our day of judgment. These words of Paul and all the words of Christ are living words that is, was and will be. These were not speaking to some future event regarding orthodox Christianity 2,000 years in the future. That is what the carnal man believes yet the truth is the corporate church had already fallen away before the Bible was even finished being written.

1Jn 2:18 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

Act 20:29 For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.

Act 20:30 Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.

Act 20:31 Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.

Each supposed reformation (i.e Martin Luther) just formed a new layer of deception and built more lies upon the false foundation of another jesus. Major heresy and damnable lies such as eternal torment, the fall of man, the trinity, man having free will were just covered up with more lies and the truth was totally blotted out of the orthodox churches. People like to quote “early” church leaders from the first few centuries, yet these were of the apostate church that had already blossomed from the days of the Apostles.

In fact late in Paul’s ministry, he told Timothy that ALL those in Asia, in all the churches he had started had forsaken him and had fallen into apostasy.  The great falling away was not some event set 2,000 years out that had no effect to the generations that have preceded us here in 2013.

2Ti 1:15 This thou knowest, that all they which are in Asia be turned away from me; of whom are Phygellus and Hermogenes.

Talk about a lonely road!  Even Demas and our beloved Titus who Paul wrote a letter to in our Bibles fell away and went back into this present world.  The deadly wound to his beastly head was healed and he fall away from the truth going back to the elementary principles of this world.  Which is what we all will do until we are dragged out by God.

2Ti 4:10 For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica; Crescens to Galatia, Titus unto Dalmatia.

The lying signs and wonders will deceive every man and it is only God’s Elect who will be rescued from the deception by the mercy of the Lord.  But this is God’s plan, His will has been done in this regard, and we are going to look at some of the ways God uses to keep the multitudes bound in total spiritual darkness with a veil over their eyes.

God’s Elect will only come to know the truth by looking behind themselves and seeing after the fact what God had done all along. We all live the examples given us of ancient Israel. They and you and me will rebel against God all the while thinking we are doing Him a service and are in good stead. Those stories were not written for them that lived then, nor are they a history lesson, they were written for our admonition upon whom the end of the age have come.

1Pe 1:12 Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.

Out of Egypt Into Babylon/Assyria

The plan for the people of God is to go into Babylon when they first come out of Egypt. Here they will spend their appointed years in captivity and bondage to the carnal doctrines of Orthodox Christianity.

Hos 11:1 When Israel (God’s Elect) was a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt.

Hos 11:2 As they called them, so they went from them: they sacrificed unto Baalim, and burned incense to graven images.

Hos 11:3 I taught Ephraim also to go, taking them by their arms; but they knew not that I healed them.

Hos 11:4 I drew them with cords of a man, with bands of love: and I was to them as they that take off the yoke on their jaws, and I laid meat unto them.

Hos 11:5 He shall not return into the land of Egypt, but the Assyrian shall be his king, because they refused to return.

This indeed is one of the spiritual lessons that the Old Testament is given to tell those with ears to hear what will have been their journey before Christ is revealed to them.

1Co 10:11 Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the ages (world) are come.

We all are snared by that woman Jezebel, spending time in the all seven churches of the book of Revelation which is just bible speak for one church. Seven being the number of completion in the Scriptures. We will think we have arrived and need not anymore repentance.

Rev 2:20 Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.

Jezebel represents the spiritual whore Babylon and her doctrines, a.k.a. the ninety and nine who thought they do not need repentance. They truly believe that they are the true church of God with all their signs and wonders and all their good works they count for their own righteousness.

Pro 30:20 Such is the way of an adulterous woman; she eateth, and wipeth her mouth, and saith, I have done no wickedness.

But when in Babylon we are fornicating with the harlot, we are eating poisoned food and bitter waters all the while claiming to not be a widow and that Christ is our husband. We will not yet know nor believe that we are a wretched man and the chief of sinners.

Mar 2:17 When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

Luk 15:7 I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.

Only God’s Elect Shall Eat True Bread

To be in Christ we must eat of His body.  When Christ dwells in us we are in Christ and He is in us.

Joh 6:54 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
Joh 6:55 For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.
Joh 6:56 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.

Yet only the few, not the many called are given this bread to eat.  It is not up to man or his delusion of free will to choose to eat this bread, it is indeed given to us.

Joh 6:65 And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were GIVEN unto him of my Father.

God’s plan and purposes is to call a few out of the many to be His Elect and continue the ministry of Jesus Christ. As the body of Christ, only God’s Elect are given the right to eat at the altar. Jesus Christ is the true bread from heaven and this is only given to His chosen few to partake of in this life.

Heb 13:10 We have an altar, whereof they have no right to eat which serve the tabernacle.

None of this is based on any merit, it is all given to men based on God’s purposes and declarations regarding Election. His counsel shall stand not matter what the wise men of Babylon or the reasoning’s of religious men say.

1Co 2:6 Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought:

1Co 2:7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:

Those in Babylon will hate us for these words and for the coat of many colors we are given by God. The story of Joseph tells of God’s dealings with His Elect.

Gen 37:3 Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colours.

Gen 37:4 And when his brethren saw that their father loved him more than all his brethren, they hated him, and could not speak peaceably unto him.

I have learned this lesson. Being persecuted and hated for simply speaking the truth of God’s word. This is the walk of God’s Elect who are blessed when they are persecuted for righteousness and His name.  Those that remain in spiritual darkness cannot bring themselves to speak peaceably to God’s Elect. God put enmity in their hearts and is working all things for the counsel of His will. All things a man has or does not have is all the Lord’s doing. There is nothing any man has received that was not given to us by God.

1Co 4:7 For who maketh thee to differ from another? and what hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as if thou hadst not received it?

The Levites versus the Priests

Many are called and few are chosen. It is the very Elect, who are the only priests of God. Only they can handle the instruments of the temple of God, which is His word. The Levites who are in type and shadow, those in Babylon only serve the tabernacle of the congregation, but they cannot go past the veil (the flesh) nor handle the instruments in the temple, lest they die.

Num 4:15 And when Aaron and his sons have made an end of covering the sanctuary, and all the vessels of the sanctuary, as the camp is to set forward; after that, the sons of Kohath shall come to bear it: but they shall not touch any holy thing, lest they die. These things are the burden of the sons of Kohath [the Levites] in the tabernacle of the congregation.

Lev 10:13 And ye [Aaron and his sons] shall eat it in the holy place, because it is thy due, and thy sons’ due, of the sacrifices of the LORD made by fire: for so I am commanded.

The altar in the holy place is the golden altar of incense, and no mere Levite who is not the seed of Aaron the high priest was ever to eat at that altar. The high priest is a type of Christ as our high priest.

“They which serve the tabernacle” but “have no right to eat” with us, are those who are “carried about by different and strange doctrines” because they fear offending their brothers who think nothing of eating “meat offered to idols” and thereby causing weak brothers to think there is nothing wrong with eating meat offered to idols. Meat offered to idols is the doctrines of Babylon and the doctrines of those who serve the tabernacles, and are “carried about by different and strange doctrines which Paul calls “the cup of devils”.

1Co 10:21 Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.


Num 18:2 And thy brethren also of the tribe of Levi, the tribe of thy father, bring thou with thee, that they may be joined unto thee, and minister unto thee: but thou and thy sons with thee [shall minister] before the tabernacle of witness.
Num 18:3 And they shall keep thy charge, and the charge of all the tabernacle: only they shall not come nigh the vessels of the sanctuary and the altar, that neither they, nor ye also, die.
Num 18:4 And they shall be joined unto thee, and keep the charge of the tabernacle of the congregation, for all the service of the tabernacle: and a stranger shall not come nigh unto you.
Num 18:5 And ye shall keep the charge of the sanctuary, and the charge of the altar: that there be no wrath any more upon the children of Israel.

Those so blessed to be given the faith of Christ and the revelation of Jesus inwardly eat at the altar of God for which the multitudes have no right to eat. Those in Babylon have no right to eat of the true things of God. Such treasures must be given only to those God has chosen since before the foundations of the world. Those in Babylon will hate us for the favor God has shown.

Heb 13:10 We have an altar, whereof they have no right to eat which serve the tabernacle.

It is the stark contrast between the Levites who are the priests, the sons of Aaron, as opposed to the Levites, who are not priests, but who are commanded to “keep the charge of the tabernacle”, which demonstrates the spiritual meaning of “Many are called but few are chosen”.

Mat 22:14 For many are called, but few are chosen.

Only the priests, the sons of Aaron are able to enter into the tabernacle to do the service “within the vail” of the tabernacle.  Getting past the veil is getting past the flesh and the carnal mind and that only by the gift of God in our appointed times.  Until that day comes, we and the all the spiritual Levites will think the things of God to be foolishness.  They are blinded as that is God’s plan.

2Co 3:14 But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ.
2Co 3:15 But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart.
2Co 3:16 Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away.

The mission field of the disciples is the many called that are in Babylon. God’s Elect are not to bash Babylon as Babylon serves a very valuable purpose in God’s plan for the ages. Babylon is there doing exactly what God has it doing which is keeping the multitudes that come to Christ blinded from the truth. We are to speak against their doctrine however and stand up to the truth and they in fact are the mission field for God’s Elect. We are only sent to the lost house of Israel.

Mat 10:5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:

Mat 10:6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel

Mat 10:7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.

Mat 10:8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

We are not sent to those God has blinded for now. We are not sent to the 99 who claim they need no repentance nor those that say they do not need a physician. Those in Babylon will think they already have repented and are serving God yet they are yet carnal and know not the true grace of the Lord at this time. God’s Elect will move on when it is clear that God has not prepared someone’s heart to receive the truth.

Mat 10:14 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.

God Keeps the Multitudes Blinded

Despite what we learn in Babylon, the plan of God is give light to very few and blind the rest of the world. Of course those that are blind will claim they see yet those words will be revealed for the lie they are at the appearing of the Lord in judgment.

Rom 11:7 What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded

All of us will be spiritual blind and YET CARNAL all the days we are in Babylon and participating in its activities and following its various doctrines all of which contradict the word of God. The whole world is deceived and only by the mercy of God are the few chosen dragged out of this deception and given the revelation of Jesus Christ.

Rev 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

The deception is complete, it is total. There is not a single doctrine we learn in Babylon that is true. All the gold and silver has been tarnished and cankered by Babylon. The word has been corrupted and turned into wormwood that we all shall certainly drink before we ever know the truth. And this is all part of God’s plan to blind the world and only give sight to a few.

Isa 3:1 For, behold, the Lord, the LORD of hosts, doth take away from Jerusalem and from Judah the stay and the staff, the whole stay of bread, and the whole stay of water

Joh 9:39 And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.

The Lord uses signs and wonders both within a person’s life and external in the world to lead the carnal minded into thinking they are in the truth, have the Holy Spirit and are not part of the whore harlot church that is Babylon. There is nobody better than God in sending strong delusion and making it stick. The Scriptures tell us how God does this and it is through lying signs and wonders. These signs are how our beast receives a deadly wound to one of its heads which is healed as we fall for the lies and carnal doctrines of Babylon. The beast that all men are will continue to rule in our hearts, our day of judgment has not yet come.

Rev 13:3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.

The signs and wonders are actual signs and wonders, they are real. People actually see miracles happening, great deliverances and healings, outward changes in their lives, but the heart has not been circumcised. They are lying signs and wonders in that they are designed to mask the greater truth from those involved. As Jesus said, His words are used to keep the multitudes in spiritual darkness every learning but never able to come to knowledge of the truth. Babylon does not appreciate these words of Scripture.

Mat 13:11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.

Mat 13:12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.

Mat 13:13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.

Mat 13:14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:

Yet this mystery of how Christ can be both total darkness to one side and total light to the other is in the Scriptures for those that are given the understanding.

Exo 14:20 And it came between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of Israel; and it was a cloud and darkness to them, but it gave light by night to these: so that the one came not near the other all the night.

Psa 139:12 Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.

Good Works and Preaching Will Deceive Us

The whole counsel of God makes clear that the performance of good works, doing good deeds and helping people in the flesh will not get us into the kingdom of God and are also used by God to keep us under strong delusion while we are in Babylon. Many will say to Christ on their day of judgment these words and the Lord will answer.

Mat 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

Mat 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

Mat 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

The Book of JOB is in type and shadow the story of God’s elect. JOB like all of us when we are in Babylon will put great trust in our good works and use them as justification of our own righteousness. Yet our righteousness as JOB found out is really truly just filthy rags. It is not our UNRIGHTEOUSNESS that is filthy rags to God, it is the good stuff we do, it is our own righteousness.

Isa 64:6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

Secretly it is all about ME, MYSELF and I or my church and my ministry during our days of being deceived by our good works which become lying signs and wonders. Just look at the boasting JOB held in his heart over all the good works he did before he knew the real God. The insidious sin of self righteousness is one we all will commit and it will be at the peak of our Babylonian service that we like JOB will be thinking such self righteous thoughts and boasting of our goodness and service to God.

Job 29:7 When I went out to the gate through the city, when I prepared my seat in the street!

Job 29:8 The young men saw me, and hid themselves: and the aged arose, and stood up.

Job 29:9 The princes refrained talking, and laid their hand on their mouth.

Job 29:10 The nobles held their peace, and their tongue cleaved to the roof of their mouth.

Job 29:11 When the ear heard me, then it blessed me; and when the eye saw me, it gave witness to me:

Job 29:12 Because I delivered the poor that cried, and the fatherless, and him that had none to help him.

Job 29:13 The blessing of him that was ready to perish came upon me: and I caused the widow’s heart to sing for joy.

Job 29:14 I put on righteousness, and it clothed me: my judgment was as a robe and a diadem.

Job 29:15 I was eyes to the blind, and feet was I to the lame.

Job 29:16 I was a father to the poor: and the cause which I knew not I searched out.

Job 29:17 And I brake the jaws of the wicked, and plucked the spoil out of his teeth.

Job 29:18 Then I said, I shall die in my nest, and I shall multiply my days as the sand.

Job 29:19 My root was spread out by the waters, and the dew lay all night upon my branch.

Job 29:20 My glory was fresh in me, and my bow was renewed in my hand.

Job 29:21 Unto me men gave ear, and waited, and kept silence at my counsel.

Job 29:22 After my words they spake not again; and my speech dropped upon them.

Our zealousness and participation in many good works are used to blind the multitudes that are in Babylon. They (which is all of us at one time) will think they lack nothing and are rich and increased in goods and need not any repentance. The good works are the proof text they are part of the Body of Christ, or so they think. God uses all of this to keep the multitudes, the many called blinded in Babylon.

2Th 2:8 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:

2Th 2:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

2Th 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

2Th 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

Fire from heaven is the word of God being spoken in heaven, and that heaven in inside of us. Those in Babylon do have the word of God, which is the fire but it is perverted. Still Babylon is full of many ministers some with great oratory skills and excellent communicators. They will speak on the word of God eloquently but with error and will lead the people astray prophesying smooth deceits to them.

Rev 13:11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.

Rev 13:12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

Rev 13:13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

Rev 13:14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

God used many a false preacher, gifted men with talents and great seeming miracles to prove it to preach the word to me and turn me over to the idols of my heart.  Great men of God preached many a fiery sermon that called fire down from my heavens but only served to take me deeper into the bottomless pit within.  We will be so convinced of this we will vigorously defend our false teachers and prophets just as I did in promoting and defending the false gospel and idols of Milton Green, Derick Prince and David Wilkerson to name a few that had be bound in Babylon long after I had left the building.

What is particularly a compelling lying sign and wonder is the outward changes we make in our lives and the very real deliverance from sins and various addictions. I have heard very compelling testimonies from people who have been delivered of drugs, overcame alcoholism, defeated pornography, turned from thief to good Samaritan.

Rev 16:13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

Rev 16:14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

I don’t doubt any of such miracles as that is what they are, a miracle from God, yet the Lord uses such things to keep the multitudes of Babylon blinded held in chains of darkness awaiting their day of judgment.

Jud 1:6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.

God does indeed heal also. He sends all sickness and disease and He heals in many cases. Such healings are also used to help bind the multitudes in darkness. God is good and is working all things, including blinding the whole world for good per the counsel of His will. We are that beast which becomes that false prophet that is actually working against God all the while we think we are serving Him when we are in Babylon.

Rev 19:19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.

Rev 19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

We must remember that it is appointed that man will live by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. So all of us, you and me will walk under strong delusion long before we come to know the true Lord. This coming out of Babylon, being dragged to Jesus Christ is a process and there are many stops along the way. This is what makes it that much harder for carnal babes to receive our true testimony when we do come out because it will have been obvious to all the folly of our earlier beliefs, all when we were certain we were in the truth but were actually in total spiritual darkness.

Here is the truth and words we will live by. We can’t know Christ until we first drink of strong drink and get drunk with wine. We can’t know Christ until we first fall backwards and be ensnared into the false doctrines of Babylon. This is true whether we go to a building or belong to a denominational church or not. The mother of all harlots lives within us.

Deu 29:6 Ye have not eaten bread, neither have ye drunk wine or strong drink: that ye might know that I am the LORD your God.

Isa 28:13 But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.

Being a good Samaritan is not about doing many good works in the flesh. Loving our neighbor is obeying God and He has commanded His Elect to go speak His word to a rebellious and stiff necked people who think they lack nothing and are not in need of repentance. The oil and wine we pour out in their wounds bring spiritual healing which are the greater works that Christ said we would do.

Luk 10:32 And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.

Luk 10:33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,

Luk 10:34 And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.

Joh 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

Christ no longer calls His Elect servants. He calls them friends because He has made know to us the mysteries of the kingdom and what His plans and purposes our.

Joh 15:14 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.

Joh 15:15 Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.

The Levites of today do not know what the Lord is doing. They are those who God has blinded and shut up in spiritual darkness. The light that is in them is actually darkness and how great is that darkness. It is not their fault or place as such understanding is only given to us if the Lord wills and has determined beforehand.

Deliverance Will “Finally” Come VIA Judgment

A day will come for each of us if we are God’s chosen when the rock that is Christ will fall upon us. I was given this mercy last year and it has completely destroyed the old me as the Potter has turned upside down and is reshaping the new man. It is not pleasant and it will not be popular with friends, family and foes. But if we are faithful, God will finish the good work He has begun in us. The true circumcision is made without hands and our works will have nothing to do with it.

When we begin to see that all that believed were lies. All of it. When we begin to realize that God had purposefully made us drunk with the wine of the harlot which mixed the things of God with the things of this world, then we will begin to awake to true righteousness. We will be shown what a wretched beast we truly are in this vessel of clay. It will be quite humbling and we will be ashamed of all the blasphemy we did against God, all the denying His doctrine and the persecution and false charges we had laid against His very Elect. But when that day comes, the walls and idols that have kept us safe and secure will come tumbling down as all of our doctrines are burned with the fire that is God’s word.

Jer 51:57 And I will make drunk her princes, and her wise men, her captains, and her rulers, and her mighty men: and they shall sleep a perpetual sleep, and not wake, saith the King, whose name is the LORD of hosts.
Jer 51:58 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; The broad walls of Babylon shall be utterly broken, and her high gates shall be burned with fire; and the people shall labour in vain, and the folk in the fire, and they shall be weary.

The people that make up the professing church will labor in vain but the Lord will build His church on His timeline.

Psa 127:1 Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.

Our pride will hold us back from admitting our error. We will play along with the harlot long after we see the truth. We won’t want to endure the shame of the cross and the rebuke of our carnal friends. But like Jeremiah found out, the fire that the Lord has set inside of us will be too strong for our flesh. We will not be able to remain silent for long.

Jer 20:9 Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay.

What a great calling and election this is. I pray all being stirred by the spirit of God will endure thru the trials of life and be found worthy to stand with Christ and rule and reign with Him in the age to come. That is the upward calling of God for which we strive to stay on the narrow path.  God is not at rest, our Father is working and the work He is doing will not be believed by us even if one declares it to us.  It awaits the day of our judgment when the lying signs and wonders will be exposed and the truth of God’s word will be made manifest to us.

Act 13:41 Behold, ye despisers, and wonder, and perish: for I work a work in your days, a work which ye shall in no wise believe, though a man declare it unto you.

The beast will be destroyed.  That is how salvation come and the first Adam is destroyed, making way for the second one, which is Christ in us, the hope of Glory.  Pray the rock falls and breaks you, that is the only way for Christ to come.

Mat 21:44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.
