@ NOT SURPRISED …

Thanks for that video and message. Yes Dyna, I have a view and it will most likely be seen as "uninformed" and it is O.K.

I believe that Putin has some factors that are pushing his agenda for the end of days. Putin and Russia have had their problems with religious groups for many decades, actually from the beginning. He has stated that America has departed from our Christian roots and I fully agree. Most believers do not even know what our early Church roots are made of (not Jewish) and neither does Putin have any understanding of "Christ within" nor the functioning of the called out Church. 

My view is that he wants to completely control all of the cults, including the Muslims and keep his nation in the old/dead form of an old eastern view of Christianity. Just look at the damage the old USSR inflicted on those who wanted to follow Christ for those 70 years of death and destruction. Putin sees the work of the JW's and the Mormons on every corner. No more! The damage that these cults have done to the world will be seen in that great and terrible day.

When the wall came down in Reagan's era, we entered into the Ukraine and set up a tent to preach the Good News to the many. We began to see multitudes come to Christ and it spread like a fire over the many years. I also noted that the cults were pouring into the newly opened nations. I remember looking at the passengers on my plane and seeing all sorts of priestcraft costumes, heading into Keiv and all of them teaching something different than that which was delivered to the Church after Pentecost. OH WHAT A MESS! I warned the elders as to what was coming.

Putin is willing to take away the freedoms of their nation in order to control the mass confusion that "religious freedom" delivers. His method will not work, it never has and never will. There will still be an underground Church (the called out people) just as there is in China. The Muslims will still riot and kill as usual and the pages of many books will be written over the death of the sheep. 

It is not that Putin does not believe, however, it is written that the devils believe and tremble.

Putin has taken a page from the pope's of old. One ruler to control the souls of mankind, one misguided religious system and death to those who will not "join" their detoured assemblies. Those who have not studied Church History will never understand. In time, the united world governments and the united world religions will be one, just as it was in the dark ages of history in Europe. However, this time around, the fulfillment of Revelations will be seen by all and there will not be a rock big enough to hide under. These are the seeds of tribulation. jmo Jim

500 years of failure!

Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the doors of the steeple house on October 31, 1517. Next year, Germany and parts of Europe will celebrate the marking of 500 years from that event:

https://www.uncommon-travel-germany.com/martin-luther-95-theses.html

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

We have had those 500 years, to receive the revelations that nailing 95 views of the problems will not fix the detoured systems, only creating more harlot daughters and little true repentance. This 500 years celebration will really be a judgment upon a system in the state of ruin. Yes there were many good movements over those years, many committed Christians who suffered the full force of corrupted priestcrafts and governments. 

Will the world even see that a celebration is not what is needed but a refocus on the mandates given to the early Church after Pentecost? Will the systems finally come to repentance? Jim

Thanks for being here at TFMR and your posts, I just wish more people could hear and understand what you have to say...... ears to hear.

We are close.

@ Jeremiah Jr.

Thanks for the encouragement! We do have an awful divided house in this current era. There are many who read the TOF posts and I believe that most just do not know what to do. Many, over the decades, would say: "I still attend a local steeple house system, pay my tithes, and joined their system. However, deep within, I know something major is missing. There is something wrong with the whole structured program. I do not want to leave, all of our friends and their kids are there and I really do not know what to say to Rev. Smith. We have been studying the old testament for the last two years and it is very dry. We want to hear about Jesus and His Great Love for the Church. If we leave, where would we go? We have seen what happens to those who depart when they are seeking more Light, they become enemies of the old assembly"!

24 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.

25 And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

There are many days Jer. Jr., that I seek an Answer from the Lord! "Lord, what can we do? Should we obtain another tent as we have done in the past and begin to preach the Kingdom? Or we could invite small groups of people to meet weekly at local coffee shops to discuss Christ within/repentance/Church discipline/the Priesthood of all believers/the Local Church/etc. as we did in the past. Who would come?"

We could meet in a central location like Denver and have three days of talks with Jer. Jr., Jimmy Wilson, Dave Ramsey and myself. Open to all who want a different view of the Church which is the Body, the called out people.

Oh well, when the two witnesses begin to walk the streets of Jerusalem, the many will finally seek the Lord for answers as some will finally realize that "Christ is the Answer and always has been".

Jim et al

Reading your posts, Dont lose heart, If we believe that Jesus died for our sins and rose from the grave, we are saved. We are saved by grace through faith and the whole package was a gift from God.

 Matt 16;24 I am not sent but to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

Romans 11;13 ( Paul) i am THE apostle of the Gentiles. I am finding great encouragement in Pauls commission, and understanding why God sent Paul to the Gentiles, while Jesus and his disciples were commissioned to the Jews. 

I used to have major problems with Paul and hence the bible, now it makes a whole lot more sense to my practical mind.

I have already come out of her and have long understood the subtle deception of the "church".

The Local Church!

I just received this word (e-mail) from RD, (a young school teacher and on fire for the Lord) and I thought I would share it with the many:

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Hallelujah! Can't wait for fellowship! Lately, I've been reading quite a few of Watchman Nee's booklets from the New Believer's series and I can't believe how much it just makes sense to me; it's everything we've been talking about at Fellowship for years now. Its what is written in the Word---God's Word! 

It still puzzles me how some "Christians" just "don't get it." I realize they have blinders on, the timing is not right, or maybe it's just purposeful rebellion...but for whatever reason...I wish more people would come to understand the Lord's TRUTH. Maybe they aren't reading His Word...or maybe they are not comprehending His Word (the right way; not that there's much to be interpreted). It really doesn't seem difficult to me to take God's Word as Truth. 

Where is the discipline these days? Where is the priesthood? People in the world really need to do their part for the betterment of God's kingdom. That's what we are Called to Do!

Anyway, just MY opinion. *smile*

Forsaking the Fountain of Life? In Him is Life!

CHAPTER XCVI. (Book of Enoch)

1. Be hopeful, ye righteous; for suddenly shall the sinners perish before you,
And ye shall have lordship over them according to your desires.

[2. And in the day of the tribulation of the sinners,
Your children shall mount and rise as eagles,
And higher than the vultures will be your nest,
And ye shall ascend and enter the crevices of the earth,
And the clefts of the rock for ever as coneys before the unrighteous,
And the sirens shall sigh because of you-and weep.]

3. Wherefore fear not, ye that have suffered;
For healing shall be your portion,
And a bright light shall enlighten you,
And the voice of rest ye shall hear from heaven.

4. Woe unto you, ye sinners, for your riches make you appear like the righteous,
But your hearts convict you of being sinners,
And this fact shall be a testimony against you for a memorial of (your) evil deeds.

5. Woe to you who devour the finest of the wheat,
And drink wine in large bowls,
And tread under foot the lowly with your might.

6. Woe to you who drink water from every fountain,
For suddenly shall ye be consumed and wither away,
Because ye have forsaken the fountain of life.

7. Woe to you who work unrighteousness
And deceit and blasphemy:
It shall be a memorial against you for evil.

8. Woe to you, ye mighty,
Who with might oppress the righteous;
For the day of your destruction is coming. p. 138
In those days many and good days shall come to the righteous--in the day of your judgement.

Article from Shoebat to ponder!

https://shoebat.com/2016/07/16/erdogan-enters-istanbul-as-triumphant-sul...

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

The world is in a change and the scriptures are beginning to align. The sleeping assemblies will be faced with fears from within and without, as they are finally become aware that their "great escape" did not unfold as they had been taught. However, he who endures to the end, he will be saved. jmo Jim

Agree with your comments, but Shoebat is way off base, Erdogan does not fit any of the parameters given for the AC.

Again, they are looking in the wrong place. For this country it would be best to look in a mirror.

Went to hear him speak a few years ago, the first night he came unprepared and rambled aimlessly, they gave him the hook and did not even let him speak the second night he was scheduled to. Had to agree with the decision. He does have some interesting things to say at times.

@Jer. Jr.

Thanks for the input. You are more tuned into these end time events than I. There may be many surprises before us. If the sleeping assemblies do not awaken soon, great will be their loss. 

Jer. Jr., as you know it is Sunday morning. We are meeting at our home this week and you are invited to have breakfast first with the fellowship. Oh what a blessing to meet with the Saints and allowing the Spirit to move within the Priesthood of all Believers. Jim

TWO HARLOTS STILL WALKING THE EARTH!

Peter Whyte is truly a man with a relationship with Christ. His books are a warning to the Church and we are thankful for his boldness in speaking to the end times assemblies:

George Fox and part of "restoration" to the early Church!

Fox learned directly from Christ. As he said: "But as I had forsaken the priests, so I left the separate preachers also, and those esteemed the most experienced people; for I saw there was none among them all that could speak to my condition (address my spiritual needs). And when all my hopes in them and in all men were gone, so that I had nothing outwardly to help me, nor could tell what to do, then, oh, then, I heard a voice which said, 'There is one, even Christ Jesus, that can speak to your condition;' and when I heard it my heart did leap for joy. Then the Lord let me see why there was none upon the earth that could speak to my condition, namely, that I might give Him all the glory; for all are concluded under sin, and shut up in unbelief as I had been, that Jesus Christ might have the pre-eminence who enlightens, and gives grace, and faith, and power. Thus when God doth work, who shall let (hinder) it? and this I knew experimentally (through experience)."

Over the next few years, George Fox continued to move around the country, usually walking all night, as he continued to receive teachings from the Christ. He experienced the appearance of the Light to expose the conditions of his heart, and the refiner's fire to burn away his sin. He was taken up through the flaming sword into paradise by Christ, first to the state of Adam and Eve before their fall, and then beyond to the state of Christ, protected from ever sinning again. He was still physically present on the earth, but his consciousness and sight was in paradise, translated into the higher dimension of the Kingdom of Heaven.

In waiting on God in humble silence, he came to a greater understanding of the nature of his faith and what it required from him. This process he called an "opening," because he experienced it as a series of sudden revelations of ideas that were already complete by the time he became conscious of them. His understanding was that Christ had come to teach people himself; Christ being the Light that enlightens all men and women that have come into the world; and that if people silently listened and waited on the Lord, the Light would change them to be pure and holy like Jesus. Among his teachings received:

Fox had the power of God with him to accomplish many divine healings, (including raising the dead) and prophesies including the Great Fire of London, Cromwell's demise, and the defeat of the Turks. He miraculously escaped many attempts on his life. He clearly won every debate with any opposing sect, and most of his strongest persecutors were mysteriously destroyed or ruined, (the heritage of a servant of the Lord).

Fellow citizens with the saints.

Ephesians 2:19

What is meant by our being citizens in heaven? It means that we are under heaven's government. Christ the king of heaven reigns in our hearts; our daily prayer is, "Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven." The proclamations issued from the throne of glory are freely received by us: the decrees of the Great King we cheerfully obey. Then as citizens of the New Jerusalem, we share heaven's honours. The glory which belongs to beatified saints belongs to us, for we are already sons of God, already princes of the blood imperial; already we wear the spotless robe of Jesus' righteousness; already we have angels for our servitors, saints for our companions, Christ for our Brother, God for our Father, and a crown of immortality for our reward. We share the honours of citizenship, for we have come to the general assembly and Church of the first-born whose names are written in heaven. As citizens, we have common rights to all the property of heaven. Ours are its gates of pearl and walls of chrysolite; ours the azure light of the city that needs no candle nor light of the sun; ours the river of the water of life, and the twelve manner of fruits which grow on the trees planted on the banks thereof; there is nought in heaven that belongeth not to us. "Things present, or things to come," all are ours. Also as citizens of heaven we enjoy its delights. Do they there rejoice over sinners that repent--prodigals that have returned? So do we. Do they chant the glories of triumphant grace? We do the same. Do they cast their crowns at Jesus' feet? Such honours as we have we cast there too. Are they charmed with his smile? It is not less sweet to us who dwell below. Do they look forward, waiting for his second advent? We also look and long for his appearing. If, then, we are thus citizens of heaven, let our walk and actions be consistent with our high dignity.

@All

In our small group last Saturday night we were talking about how a week or even a day now does no go by now without some overt horrendous, act of Evil manifesting itself somewhere. Almost makes one not want to read the news anymore. It brought to mind Paul’s comments that…

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come”. 2 Tim 3:1.

We are there, living in those days, yet, take heart Saints and Believers, the called out ones, don’t fear, and let your light shine wherever you are called to. We all have a mission field.

Remember, we are not of this world and never forget that, like the above, and as Pilgrim, in Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress, we are sojourners on our way to the celestial city, and the unbelieving world can never comprehend or grasp that Truth, in fact, they mock us for it.

That is why they are preoccupied and can do nothing but speak of this world, and its failing system, for that is where their hope is tied to. They can do nothing other. Always remember, they are not the enemy but the mission field.

 This life is but a breath, Eternity is what matters.

By Grace, we have this treasure in earthen vessels and they cannot even fathom what we speak of.

I have been contending for the Truth in another forum, do that from time to time, the Lord told me that it is time to cease that. I have put enough out there that if anyone is really open and searching and interested they can find.

Keep in mind we all are to contend for the Faith, follow Jesus example; Biblical evangelism is always, Law to the proud, Grace to the Humble, with the Law He breaks the Hard Heart and with Grace He heals the Broken Heart.

We are close to something big happening, I think we all sense it, I do, the task from here on out for me is to stay in TOF and Zionism, and teaching, encouraging and edifying believers, He was pretty clear about that with regard to this site.

No need to fear the events we all see unfolding…… Those of this world are fearful; I can read it in their posts and see it in their faces of those I meet. They have no answers as to what is coming upon the face of this earth.

Yet for us…..

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind 2 Tim 1:7

But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day” 

Pro 4:18.

The Perfect Day is coming.

Thank you Brother Jer. Jr.

That is a wonderful post above and a testimony for all to see, even the cloud of witnesses who watch the working of the True called out Church. I must testify of our stand in these last days:

Thanks Jim, and have safe travels, enjoy your family and the time away, hope they win.

Believers, vote as you are led, (if we even have another election) and if you watch the political circus tonight, put no ultimate stock or hope in the current American political process. They (He) may be sincere, and again perhaps not. I (we) are not their judge. We collectively have morphed into the final revival of Babylon the Great, the final transformation is still yet to come.

Who presides over that is still yet to be seen.

We may get a short reprieve; then again it may just continue to accelerate. Either way, we are NEVER called to reform a culture, just reach those individuals within it, via the Gospel of God.

This world and its present systems are going down, and going down hard, real soon, we may be caught in the backwash for a while, yet we know the end of the story.

Keep looking up!

Jim,

It finally occurred to me that you have no avatar, no brand, not that you need one, but these came to mind.

They are all from Bunyan's Pilgrims Progress, the second most read piece of Christian literature , second only to the Bible.

If I may, pick one, they all fit you. smiley


 

To all those here contending for the faith, thank you, it is not overlooked by Whom we have to do.

Jer. Jr.; Those are some interesting photo's that you posted above , however, above my pay scale. If I could figure out how to paste this photo in the box, it would be a better view. What will the King see when He returns? We have so departed from the original understanding of the Local Church, that all we now have is a rat infested steeple house, lifeless, and not needing remodeling nor reformed but torn down to the Foundation and restored to the original pattern (the Church being the called out Saints, meeting in homes, all within the Priesthood of all Believers, operating in the five fold ministries - Eph. 4:11-12, and where two or more gather in His Name - there He is in the midst of them) OH HAPPY DAY!
