“To the angel of the church in Sardis write:
These are the words of him who holds the seven spirits of God and the seven stars. I know your deeds; you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead. 2 Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have found your deeds unfinished in the sight of my God. 3 Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; hold it fast, and repent. But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief,and you will not know at what time I will come to you.
4 Yet you have a few people in Sardis who have not soiled their clothes. They will walk with me, dressed in white, for they are worthy.5 The one who is victorious will, like them, be dressed in white. I will never blot out the name of that person from the book of life, but will acknowledge that name before my Father and his angels. 6 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” (NIV)
“KEEP WATCH” “He who has this hope in him purifies himself.”
Preacher Bob. He went to the Seminary. He learned a whole bunch about what the church fathers said. They told him there, that, there are no prophets now because the Bible is already writ (Sarcasm is one of my gifts, as Jesus’ also). Thank you Lord for my gifts. Elijah did not write any books of the Bible, yet he was a very powerful prophet.
He resisted Jezebel whose sex orgy worship of Baal, [about to break out in New York] and to which Israel, also sacrificed children to the idol of the horrible demon. [pertinent here lately, huh?] Further, she was involved in the murder of God’s actual prophets and pursued Elijah with intent to murder him. When a silencing of the prophets comes from higher educational institutions we have no choice except to call it Jezebel.
What has been learned there? What has been learned here? Clearly, the denominational churches of our day and Pentecostal showbiz churches of our day are with reputation for being alive … “But you are dead.” “WAKE UP!” [Glorified Jesus]
George H. W. Bush: “New World Order” for those of you old enough to remember. Now he also said “I see a thousand points of light” in referring to people and organizations committed in some way to helping those in various types of need.
I, personally see a thousands points of Jezebel and church leadership on the whole among these thousand points in our day. The Christian aspects, of the Jezebel manifestation, in leadership, entails seminaries where the cases are ill prepared, conversely I adequately prepared mine, while acting as my own counsel in federal court winning twice, with the Spirit, as foretold, to you, in real time, without Jezebel’s lawyer. I exposed him to public humiliation. Because where the Constitution provides protections under several amendments these amendments and protections have been set aside in favor of “efficiency in the prosecution of cases” many, many cases. It would have been a daring move, if I had not had the promise of Jesus, for my deliverance. (John 16: 12-14). God produces justice. He will not sponsor injustice.
The system designed, originally, to produce justice now produces instead, “efficiency” through coercive means. The lawyers are programmed to seek plea bargains. I call them deals with the devil. Had I remained lukewarm or walked in fear, I would have done decades in federal prison, the Lord there intervening by his Spirit, spoke, “end from the beginning”, encouraged, trained and gave me the words for victory. Because I was innocent, as I said, from the beginning.
Lukewarm leadership in churches have sought rather than presentation of argument against the lies that abound opting allegedly, one supposes the focus on the purity of the gospel, to help hide the light under a bushel. Hmmm. Are they not assured; and, in fear, Lord? Yeah respectability, I know, Lord.
Jesus performed many miracles, taught the lost sheep of Israel, while fulfilling their law, was rejected as prophesied, him prophesying the “gospel would be [has been] preached in all the world then the end will come” handed over to Pilate who wanted to let him go but the religious of his day wanted to maintain their position and their place as the high priest said. So to fulfill the prophesy and the law as the lamb of God [atonement sacrifice Lev. 23] who takes away the sins of the world, as John testified, Jesus was crucified dead and buried.
Three days later Mary Magdalene spoke to the angel who said he has risen. John said, Jesus was the “lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.” Then Mary spoke to Jesus, alive though he had been dead. The apostles resisted believing. That is the gospel. (Col. 1)
Now the words of Elijah to Ahab, guilty of more abomination than any King before him as I Kings 16 reveals, were, Elijahs words, there will be no rain for the next few years except when he [Elijah] said it would rain. The Lord sent him to be fed by the ravens. Still the Lord did not tell Elijah to call for rain. The Lord sent Elijah to Sidon where the widow listened and the jars of flour and oil did not run out. What if she had not listened to the prophet Lord? Then her son became ill to the point of death. He prayed and gave her back her son alive. She said: I Kings 17:
“Then the woman said to Elijah, “Now I know that you are a man of God and that the word of the Lord from your mouth is the truth.” (NIV)
I thank you also Lord.
Jezebel had the prophets of God killed. She tried but failed to kill Elijah. My favorite story in the entire Bible comes in chapter 18: 16-39:
So Obadiah went to meet Ahab and told him, and Ahab went to meet Elijah. 17 When he saw Elijah, he said to him, “Is that you, you troubler of Israel?”
18 “I have not made trouble for Israel,” Elijah replied. “But you and your father’s family have. You have abandoned the Lord’s commands and have followed the Baals. 19 Now summon the people from all over Israel to meet me on Mount Carmel. And bring the four hundred and fifty prophets of Baal and the four hundred prophets of Asherah, who eat at Jezebel’s table.”
20 So Ahab sent word throughout all Israel and assembled the prophets on Mount Carmel. 21 Elijah went before the people and said, “How long will you waver between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him; but if Baal is God, follow him.”
But the people said nothing.
Best story in the entire Bible here in I Kings. I Kings 18: 25-39:
“Elijah said to the prophets of Baal, “Choose one of the bulls and prepare it first, since there are so many of you. Call on the name of your god, but do not light the fire.” 26 So they took the bull given them and prepared it.
Then they called on the name of Baal from morning till noon. “Baal, answer us!” they shouted. But there was no response; no one answered. And they danced around the altar they had made.
27 At noon Elijah began to taunt them. “Shout louder!” he said. “Surely he is a god! Perhaps he is deep in thought, or busy, or traveling. [or wooden LOL] Maybe he is sleeping and must be awakened.” 28 So they shouted louder and slashed themselves with swords and spears, as was their custom, until their blood flowed. 29 Midday passed, and they continued their frantic prophesying until the time for the evening sacrifice. But there was no response, no one answered, no one paid attention.
30 Then Elijah said to all the people, “Come here to me.” They came to him, and he repaired the altar of the Lord, which had been torn down.31 Elijah took twelve stones, one for each of the tribes descended from Jacob, to whom the word of the Lord had come, saying, “Your name shall be Israel.” 32 With the stones he built an altar in the name of the Lord, and he dug a trench around it large enough to hold two seahs of seed.33 He arranged the wood, cut the bull into pieces and laid it on the wood. Then he said to them, “Fill four large jars with water and pour it on the offering and on the wood.”
34 “Do it again,” he said, and they did it again.
“Do it a third time,” he ordered, and they did it the third time. 35 The water ran down around the altar and even filled the trench.
[more water on the altar. LOL]
36 At the time of sacrifice, the prophet Elijah stepped forward and prayed: “Lord, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel, let it be known today that you are God in Israel and that I am your servant and have done all these things at your command.37 Answer me, Lord, answer me, so these people will know that you, Lord, are God, and that you are turning their hearts back again.”
38 Then the fire of the Lord fell and burned up the sacrifice, the wood, the stones and the soil, and also licked up the water in the trench.
39 When all the people saw this, they fell prostrate and cried, “The Lord—he is God! The Lord—he is God!” (NIV)
A long list of people watched, my progress also, being told in advance while, these things unfolded. None of them are interested in revealing God’s Glory. Rather they suppress the truth. They’ve run away in fear. They include the General Superintendents of the Church of the Nazarene, though most of them were privvy, only second hand. Ask your evangelist about the prophet sent to you.
“Lord, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel, let it be known today that you are God … and that I am your servant and have done all these things at your command.37 Answer me, Lord, answer me, so these people will know that you, Lord, are God, and that you are turning their hearts back again.”
Many of us are dealing with your omission. My own father, while I lived in his home, saw the magnificent work of the Lord, immediately, making me a new creation in Christ, he also found salvation by grace through faith in Jesus, as result. Several friends also. That is fruit. Fruit is what God sent Jesus to produce, through sinners he saves by grace. I was producing nearly immediately. What happened? Was I encouraged as one God was confirming with fruit/evidence? Ask the evangelist. John 14. Jesus also prayed for “sanctification” for everyone who would believe because of the disciples’ testimony of his resurrection.
Your omission is, not presenting the truth to the world and especially the “little children” Jesus said you were supposed to “let come to me” (that’s what he said). After demonstrating his prophetic power in me, I was persecuted by many in your midst. Instead of supporting the Lord’s servant on his difficult way, you left me beaten and near dead on the side of the road while you walked by on the other side.
Right now, the False Prophet consolidates all the religions of the world also claiming the one (their alter-Jesus, anti-Jesus, anti Christ Go HERE) who will, according to the eschatology of that other religion, rise up on behalf of the Mahdi and with the Caliphate army of the deceived world, attacking, he destroy the devil when he tries to touch down on the mount of Olives. And the biggest author in history along with the potentate of the largest denomination on earth muddies the water preparing the “Powerful Delusion” I suggest you get on board here if you love the Lord and you love your children and grandchildren. And it is dead works evident in not being concerned about all the children, grandchildren parents and grandparents, on earth. Jesus died for them, did God waste his Son’s blood? LUKEWARM CHURCH!
Genesis lays out the six days of creation. But wavering between opinions as Elijah truthfully spoke about Israel. If Genesis is not true, then sin did not enter the world through Adam. Millions of years would make God out to be a liar. I know him and he is not a liar. The millions and millions of years based on Radiometric dating that showed Mt Saint Helen’s rocks, I saw them one year later, first hand, known by the scientists who collected them to be but a few years old (less than 10) then sent them to Radiometric Dating labs. Those labs tested these rocks, not knowing where the samples were from and returned the numerous specimens from numerous labs showing dates ranging from .27 million years to 3.7 million years. They were less than 10 years old as a matter of objective evidence. The dating is a huge joke!
In 1801 one of the volcanoes in Hawaii erupted. Then if I recall a couple more times in between then and 1956? Same results. Millions and Millions of years old.
The odds (BSME) so I understand statistics, of one usable protein arriving from the primordial soup are said to be 1 X 10 ^ 164 (Go HERE) and Richard Dawkins needs 17 such simultaneous event with the same nano-neighborhood for one cell that could be claimed as life.
A man I know has found soft tissue in dinosaur bone which carbon dates to around 30,000 years where no carbon could be in such a fossil actually aged after about 50,000 years. He gives reasons why these dates will come down to the Lord’s 6,000 years, however a million works because Dawkins and Darwin, need million and millions for their religion to work. Of course he was fired because the Dogmatic in that religion EVOLUTION Go HERE for evidence told him his religion (Jesus) would not be tolerated in the department at CSUN. Now the truth is out here to be had. Noah had two of each dinosaurs on the boat, and we know this because God tells us he created them all on the sixth day. (Go HERE) Why is the investigation not supported by Christians? The leaders are absent from the argument. Millions in the world believe the lie the world is millions and millions of years old. They are perishing for lack of knowledge. My grandchildren are being taught these lies too. Our son is already lost in the lies, thanks to Ehrman. Lies that, as my word problems, organized and interpreted prove, and show people God wrote the Bible (Go Here).
Mary Schweitzer and then Mark Armitage found soft tissue, published and presented in peer reviewed publication and forums, and Mark then predicted this soft tissue in bones (they are not fossils) is the “Norm.” His prediction, is, as the preponderance of the evidence is pointing too, is proving to be the norm.
Chris Queen. 3/7/2019. I’m still Josey Wales. Please hit the Follow above and to the right for future updates. Please leave your valued comments in the form below. My book Misquoting Calculus (Here) presents nine clear cut prophetic strikes (bowling) of God on the timeline of history. The raw chart odds are 1 X 10 ^ – 8 that God did not write the Bible (we are responsible to give unbelievers a reason to believe, like Elijah did, and be saved, those kids who leave for college and don’t return to church? No reason to return when they see the world is millions and millions of years old. (right?) Now I appeal to you. Mark needs our help. Fluoride ? … Microscopes etc are not free. He needs money to fund his research and train young proteges’ to carry on. His go fund me address is on his videos. If God is God then help Mark Armitage prove it to his former, colleagues but if Baal is God let the reputation (Yeah back to Revelation … you already know I am expert in the word) and lies remain as perceived truth. I tried to be nice. Its up to the Lord, now. The Lord strengthen you in your inner being so Christ may dwell by faith. “Metanoia and believe the good news.” Mark 1.
