Mene, Mene, Tekel, Parsin again!

There are times when I receive a letter from my old sister (92). When I open the mailbox and find an envelope, written in cursive writing, I know who it is from. She still knows how to read and write as it was in her beginnings and I just love it and her.

There has been One Who has also, in the long ago past, and even now, Who is still writing as in the days of old. When conflict rises, He may write in His form of "cursive". When His Finger wrote Meme, Meme, on the wall: "God has numbered the days of your reign and brought it to an end", that should have been enough of a message for that nation.

Today, we still have a form of cursive:

19 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:

20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord come:

21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

We see that in John chapter 8, "And again, He stooped down, and wrote on the ground." There is many speculations over the crop circles and their meanings. We know that there will be "signs" upon the earth and even in the heavens above. Most are looking for "space aliens" and have discounted He Who came as an Alien to the earth and the only One we know of that has placed His Finger upon the land and written a message.

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

Some signs are for a warning, usually because of conflicts, and the majority still have not repented. Thousands of years of conflicts, man made religious divisions, cults of death and controls, the rejection of the Lord and His Church which He is building, the demonic moving into the false leadership to clear a pathway to hell for those who join their demonic systems of Satan, while the True Church is rejected by the blind guides, making their assemblies twice a son of hell as themselves (Matthew 23).

When that day comes and the majority of steeple house members, find themselves counted with the five foolish virgins, it will be too late to understand that they have been deceived. Yes there are signs and wonders these days. Jim

THINK NOT!

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

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.

36 And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.

37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.

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

39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.

40 He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.

41 He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward. (Matthew 10)

A Tack, a hammer and a paper with 10!

Someone saw an older man, boldly, heading for Luther's steeple house door, early this morning! He nailed it right in the middle of that old door and shouted out, "wake up before He returns" and walked onward. Dale grabbed the paper and read it to the gathering crowd:

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

He who has an ear, let him hear:

1. For I the Lord, do not change, return to Me and I will return to you.

2. I appeal to you, brothers, in the Name of the Lord Jesus, that all of you agree together, so that there be no divisions among you and that you may be united in mind and conviction.

3. You are a chosen people, a Royal Priesthood, a holy nation, a people of God's own possession, to proclaim the virtues of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous Light.

4. Do you not know that you yourselves are God's Temple and that God's Spirit dwells in you?

5. Know ye not that, "except a man be born again, he CANNOT see the Kingdom of God?

6. Know ye not that He came not to bring peace on earth but a sword?

7. Know ye not that if righteousness comes through the law, Christ died for nothing?

8. Have ye understood:

“Do not handle! Do not taste! Do not touch!”? 22 These rules, which have to do with things that are all destined to perish with use, are based on merely human commands and teachings. 23 Such regulations indeed have an appearance of wisdom, with their self-imposed worship, their false humility and their harsh treatment of the body, but they lack any value in restraining sensual indulgence.

9. Know ye not that pure and undefiled religion before our God and Father is this?: To care for the orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

10. Know ye not, "If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved?

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

Brother Dale, at this point, renailed the copy to the steeple house door, thanking the Lord Jesus for his salvation. amen

Crumpled Paper and a Voice!

The old man came back by the steeple house from the early morning visit. His note was not on the door any longer but crumpled upon the floor of their entryway. He felt led to enter into their meeting house during their morning gathering.

While standing in their aisle, the punk rock band was banging their drums and the ushers were just finishing their count of the morning fiat offering. Several young women, in colorful attire, were dancing around the front of the assembly as the rock band played.

When right, right reverend sister Jones saw the old man coming up the aisle, her blood vessels began to rise in anger. Silence came quickly. He said: "I left just ten items on your steeple house door this morning. It was only a short list of your sins. I see that you have once more rejected the Truth of the Gospel, given by our Lord and His apostles to the Church. Even now, this day, we see that the enemy of the Lord has set your blind agenda, making your meetings acceptable to the sinners of the world,never coming to repentance and the knowledge of the Truth.

Your blind clergy are in the old covenant, never having understood the Priesthood of all believers. Your tithes and offerings are for the prosperity of your clergy, for building more buildings, buying more property, buying busses and Sunday school classroom materials while your local city is filled with orphans and widows in need, to your shame. 

Your large steeple house sign, at the roadway, informing the unsaved world of your denomination and your departure from all other believers, is a witness against you and is seen by both heaven and hell. Your pews are filled with blind sheep, many who are seeking an answer for their lives and you have detoured them to your false gospel and your traditions. 

You baptize babies, conformation with a slap, bury with a sprinkling of unholy water, and give a wafer, teaching that it is the way to receive Christ within, to your shame again.

You send your blind missionaries around the globe, spreading your false views of the Truth, and the damage that is done is beyond repair, this being a witness against you in that day. Better to have a millstone around your necks and to be cast into the sea. Your divided witness to the unsaved world has been seen by all and the many true prophets of God, that have been sent to you, have been rejected, thrown out or even killed. 

You seek members and converts to your blinded detours, looking for numbers and fame, wanting larger tithes as you seek larger buildings and assets of a fallen generation of men. "

At this point, four men grab the old man, throw him down the steeple house stairs, stuff the morning crumpled morning paper in his pocket and inform him that he will be beaten if he ever comes back. The old man rose from the ground, dusted of his feet as a witness against them, being seen by the angels above and the demons upon the streets of the city.

The Great Smokescreen of the Reformation!

I do wonder how many Christians have actually read any of Martin Luther's 95 theses, posted on the door of the steeple house.

I think the percentage is very small. So, I will post number 17 - 23 of his list:

___________________________________________________________________

  1. It seems as though for the souls in purgatory fear should necessarily decrease and love increase.
  2. Furthermore, it does not seem proved, either by reason or by Scripture, that souls in purgatory are outside the state of merit, that is, unable to grow in love.
  3. Nor does it seem proved that souls in purgatory, at least not all of them, are certain and assured of their own salvation, even if we ourselves may be entirely certain of it.
  4. Therefore the pope, when he uses the words ``plenary remission of all penalties,'' does not actually mean ``all penalties,'' but only those imposed by himself.
  5. Thus those indulgence preachers are in error who say that a man is absolved from every penalty and saved by papal indulgences.
  6. As a matter of fact, the pope remits to souls in purgatory no penalty which, according to canon law, they should have paid in this life.
  7. If remission of all penalties whatsoever could be granted to anyone at all, certainly it would be granted only to the most perfect, that is, to very few.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< Does this sound like a list that has straightened out the blinded systems of men? Will this list set men free and open up the view of Jesus and His Kingdom? Has salvation come to the masses via this posting upon the wooden doors? That which is lacking is a major problem as it still is today: "If thou shall confess the Lord Jesus and believe in thy heart that the Father raised Him from the dead, thou will be saved". Martin should have written 95 items on this subject alone and it would have started a "restoration" and not a dead "reformation". Jim

John, the Church needs ones like you today!

An Address to His Persecutors and a Prayer to God

John Hus quote: an address to his persecutors and a prayer to God:

"Alas, drag my poor carcass to death, so that you cannot sin any longer against an innocent victim!" "Leave the mercy or punishment of my soul to Him who is a just judge and not like you unfortunate blind ones. My trust is in the Almighty God and in my Lord Jesus Christ, who has redeemed me and has called me to preach His Gospel to the last breath of life. I fervently hope that he may have mercy upon me and receive me in grace and that he will hand to me the cup of eternal salvation and will never take it from me. I also truly believe that he will hand me this cup today, out of which I shall drink bliss and my salvation in eternity. His blessed name be praised by all!" – John Hus (1400's)

Remembering the Past!

John Hus

John HusOne of Wycliffe’s followers, John Hus, actively promoted Wycliffe’s ideas: that people should be permitted to read the Bible in their own language, and they should oppose the tyranny of the Roman church that threatened anyone possessing a non-Latin Bible with execution. Hus was burned at the stake in 1415, with Wycliffe’s manuscript Bibles used as kindling for the fire. The last words of John Hus were that, “in 100 years, God will raise up a man whose calls for reform cannot be suppressed.” Almost exactly 100 years later, in 1517, Martin Luther nailed his famous 95 Theses of Contention (a list of 95 issues of heretical theology and crimes of the Roman Catholic Church) into the church door at Wittenberg. The prophecy of Hus had come true!

Why did God make mosquitos? (;)

"First, our original parents, Adam and Eve, were not bothered by disease until they disobeyed God. Because of that disobedience, the human family became weak and vulnerable to diseases—and even death (Romans 5:12; 6:23). In the beginning, the Lord did not intend for any of us who have been made in his image to be hurt by his animal creatures, but this is the price we pay for not following the Creator’s instructions. Every mosquito bite ought to be a reminder to obey God." 

Lol. (My bold, found that sentence funny, although not untrue). I'm not sure others will share my sense of humor, but that's ok also.

The Geneva Bible!

I have in my hand, a facsimile of the University of Wisconsin Press addition of thee 1560 Geneva Bible. It says it is the first English bible to be fully translated from the original languages. The English settlers who voyaged to the new world favored the Geneva bible. The Pilgrims also brought it with them on the Mayflower.

Some interesting things to ponder is the other books that are contained within this large volume: 1 & 2nd Esdras, Tobit, Judeth, The rest of Esther, Wisdom, The song of the three children, 1 &2 Maccabees and a few others.

We still have the problems of what to do with the Book of Enoch. There is a mountain of interesting pages upon that book. One could ponder the differing levels of heaven, the warnings to the world and even the Church age. We could see what is going to happen to the unsaved and how they will be removed from the earth. (Ponder that). Jim

Too late on that day!

Where will he flee, he that is not sealed, he that does not have Christ within, on that day. He will be gathered by the angels in a moment of time and there will not be an escape. Hiding in a cave or within the basement of a steeple house, will not hide from Him. It will be just as in the days of Noah as he will be removed and God's People will inherit the earth:

I-XXXVI

I-V. Parable of Enoch on the Future Lot of the Wicked and the Righteous

CHAPTER I.

1. The words of the blessing of Enoch, wherewith he blessed the elect ⌈⌈and⌉⌉ righteous, who will be living in the day of tribulation, when all the wicked ⌈⌈and godless⌉⌉ are to be removed. 2. And he took up his parable and said--Enoch a righteous man, whose eyes were opened by God, saw the vision of the Holy One in the heavens, ⌈which⌉ the angels showed me, and from them I heard everything, and from them I understood as I saw, but not for this generation, but for a remote one which is for to come. 3. Concerning the elect I said, and took up my parable concerning them:

The Rapture of the Wicked!

The below link is a long article, written over 20 years ago and is well written. I do not know who has written it. For the last thirty years, we have warned the believers of the false rapture concepts coming from the steeple houses. How many dates have been set, even by the JW's and even the AOG and the millions of books sold by blind writers, making huge fiat? Now we have the 23rd. of Sept. coming and again the majority have bitten on the apple. On the next day, the 24th, they will find a new date and still be incorrect, not understanding the scriptures nor the events coming upon all mankind.

Many years ago, I would say to Christians: "Lord, let me be one of the many LEFT BEHIND like it was in the days of Noah. " I usually just get one of those looks and they still look to be removed. It is not a matter of one's salvation, having the correct view, but being a pre-tribber, may keep one in their dead pews, looking for an escape. I would want to give a warning to the Church but have not been told to do so, therefore, I will be here to try and help with more broken lives on the 24th of Sept.: Jim

(Actually, I may not be on the forum by then, wanting to allow others to post more, my subscription is over next month)

Outliers?

A neighbor came to our door a couple of weeks ago. She told us of her many serious health problems and wanted us to give her some direction for natural healing. The wife and I told her about some great stuff, legal, and where to obtain it. She bought it and starting using the product. Last evening, she told me she stopped taking the product because it did not taste very good.

There are times when one just must become an "outlier" in several different fields of life. How important are the areas of truth to us as individuals? Why study alternative medicine if we head over to the drug stores every time? Why point out the evils of the banksters if we own stock in their companies? Why point out the corruption in politics and still sign up for your voter card? Why point out the evils of denominations if you attend the steeple houses on Sunday mornings?

We must become "overcomers" to live in a world based on Truth and freedom, and just knowing these truths does not make us an overcomer or an outlier. Knowing truly is not having. Jim

Well, Here's This ...

"The Baby Boomer Generation" (KJV Bible Baptist Preaching)

I'm not even done yet, but I knew I'd end up throwing this skunk on the table.

I don't support the man entirely. But I do see older Christians missing the boat on an upcoming generation of Traditionalists who embrace family roles, chastity, sacrifice, and striking at the degeneracy around them.

The SBC just condemned them. On walks the SBC, down the wide road...

O.K., I Run Bartertown!

I did listen to almost half of the preachers message.First, I am happy that "you are not done yet"! I , myself, am one of the older boomers and can identify with the preachers message. There is a lot of truth in his views, but it still falls short of the real problems. The detours did not start after WW2 with the boomers. It started long ago, when the early Church departed from the instructions for the Church, the people of God, the called out Ones, the Body, the House of God and allowed the divisions to come forth. It started when the clergy class, wanting power and money with their control, to invade the House of God, the people. It happened when the detoured religious systems began to dress in costumes, using the scriptures to fleece the sheep, gathering tithes unto themselves, building their own towers of Babble, making a name for themselves, thinking that they have their own "flocks".

This reminds me of a little thing that happened about 35 years ago. I placed my two kids in a so-called AOG grade school. My kids wanted to see the movie E.T. and I told them NO! They said that the entire class had already seen the movie and they were the only ones who had not. I told them that there is only One E.T who came to the earth and that rose from the dead and has the Power to raise the dead, it is not the movie ET. I finally had to remove my son from the school and place him in the public schools. Why pay for a Christian education when there is little differences?

IRB, I must state again, that Jesus said we would be "outcasts" and that preacher will need much more "Revelations" to become an outcast from the denomination system of detoured men.

I can remember, back in the early sixty's, watching the flower children, the VW wagons heading for California dreaming, sex and love along with lots of drugs. I remember thinking, this will not end well and never touched that unclean era. It may be time for you , IRB, to organize some local meetings, inviting some elders of the local divided systems, talk these things out while it is still time. I seldom receive an invitation to speak in a steeple house system and I usually am never invited back. Their entire structure is anti-bible, anti-Word of the Lord and they will not repent. 

I see a multitude of good people, steeple house attendees, tithers, kind people, being excluded from entry into the Kingdom of God, being stuck with the five foolish virgins of the scriptures, there will be much weeping in that day. Jim

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

Also IRB: The RCC has had a huge control over its members, from the beginning. They actually we able to convince the people that they controlled the gates into the Kingdom. Through FEAR of Hell, they were able to control billions of people. The others, the protestors, the early ones who saw the Truth, we burned alive for just speaking the Truth. The RCCers are still the same today, however, the other denominations have very little fear of death and hell. They just think that there are thousands of doors, all opening into the heavens and they will find themselves "outside" where there is weeping.

" First, I am happy that "you are not done yet"!

What can I say Jim? I wander the modern landscape with little to no support. A breathing faith that finds fellowship only with the parchments of dead men. The only one who hasn't told me I'm wrong yet, is the One who matters.

"IRB, I must state again, that Jesus said we would be "outcasts" and that preacher will need much more "Revelations" to become an outcast from the denomination system of detoured men." 

I strongly agree. He's a fair-weather outcast. He'll storm out of the steeplehouse on a sunny day. I think I'll leave it at that for now.

"It may be time for you , IRB, to organize some local meetings, inviting some elders of the local divided systems, talk these things out while it is still time. "

This is cruel, Jim. Haughty, I suppose. And shows how far I have to go. But they don't matter. Yes, of course spiritually like we all do, but their mark has been made. They have preached their sermon. They have given us the fruit of their tree. Whatever strength I can offer, I will offer to the young, that they might be better protected from "some elders of the local divided systems".

"Also IRB: The RCC has had a huge control over its members, from the beginning. They actually we able to convince the people that they controlled the gates into the Kingdom. Through FEAR of Hell, they were able to control billions of people. The others, the protestors, the early ones who saw the Truth, we burned alive for just speaking the Truth.

They just think that there are thousands of doors, all opening into the heavens and they will find themselves "outside" where there is weeping."

Jim, I think our conversations began in earnest with a question I asked about Catholicism. My view has come into better focus, I believe.

Have a great day Jim!
