We are in the beginning of the time of the end very clearly, as those of us not under the powerful delusion, can see. This should bring you peace. Looking forward to the hope in the mystery of Jesus’ appearing. HARPOZO. A Greek word.
Long ago now, the Lord made my path crooked, as Jeremiah spoke also. This involved prophetic words spoken in advance to nearly a thousand people who watched as the Lord completely decimated my enemy and yours, as the Lord foretold. I was severely persecuted for the Lord’s gift to me.
Now if you are a believer in cessation, that would be your problem. Those who believe such have listened to those who have not adequately read and understood the Word.
I Corinthians 12: 1 – 11:
“Now about the gifts of the Spirit, brothers and sisters, I do not want you to be uninformed. 2 You know that when you were pagans, somehow or other you were influenced and led astray to mute idols. 3 Therefore I want you to know that no one who is speaking by the Spirit of God says, “Jesus be cursed,” and no one can say, “Jesus is Lord,” except by the Holy Spirit.
4 There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. 5 There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. 6 There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.
7 Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. 8 To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, 9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, 10 to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues. 11 All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines.”
God does these thing through the Holy Spirit as he determines. Gifts are given for the common good to strengthen individual believers. So the cessation set must believe at some point God decided to stop being concerned about the common good and strengthening the church and individuals.
Actually, the raised in religion have a special kind of iniquity (insistence on self will, rather than the will of God, trying to lay their HOG WASH on others). This is what God said about Satan. Iniquity was found in him. The perverse Idea he could take the place, the throne and the power of God.

The religious think God wants people to become religious. But the gospel replaced religion with a new creation one with the Lord, through the Spirit speaking to the individual what Jesus tells the Spirit to say. John 16: 7-14.
And with three or four, perhaps five generations of those who believe God wants them to be religious and teach the world their religion, they have created a dead form focused on intellectual self- aggrandizement. But the gospel is not a matter of words but of power. They have none.
Add those immature religious who do not seek the Lord and have gone to seminary generation after generation, learning a dead form and authored confusion. Their sheep clothing facade is pure hypocrisy.
Hypocrisy is the claiming you are a spiritual powerhouse and tower of holiness. There’s only one of those.
The scholarly do things like read Genesis and with the false idea the earth is millions and millions of years old as the story that was begun in truth about 150 years ago.
Then taken by those who have exalted Darwin’s theory to pseudo-fact. They have told the lie over and over again until they believe it to be fact. No scientific method whatsoever to back it up. And most of our preachers believe the lie too.
So the seminary professor likewise brain washed sat and taught that Genesis is an allegory about “us.” Not the literal story of the way sin entered the world, as Jesus taught it. Jesus died because of the story in Genesis which is true.
This apostasy turns my stomach. There are for the most part a small handful of leaders I can abide.
The math in my books was a result of the crooked path the Lord made me walk down to teach me of his prophetic word. Don’t come looking for a word of knowledge here or any advice I claim is from God. Won’t find me in any such church.
Let’s read the word and believe like little children. That is what Jesus said.
Now what was Jesus preaching? The kingdom of heaven. A throne on the earth with God Almighty ruling. He told that to Jews in Israel and not to Gentiles. He is coming to make that a reality in Jerusalem. Isaiah calls the Anti-Christ the Assyrian. Wake Up. HERE!
The authors of confusion read what is intended for First Century Jews over the Gentiles and gospel of grace through faith. The prophesy concerning Jews and Gentiles in the prophets and the law are very different.
Romans 10: 16:
“But not all the Israelites accepted the good news. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our message?” 17 Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.”(The word about Christ? This has been changed since 1979 in the NIV, since I started walking with the Lord) (Even Bart Ehrman is not completely wrong) “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.”
Paul goes on: Romans 10:
“But I ask: Did they not hear? Of course they did:
“Their voice has gone out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world.”
19 Again I ask: Did Israel not understand? First, Moses says,
“I will make you envious by those who are not a nation;
I will make you angry by a nation that has no understanding.”
20 And Isaiah boldly says,
“I was found by those who did not seek me;
I revealed myself to those who did not ask for me.”
21 But concerning Israel he says,
“All day long I have held out my hands
to an disobedient and obstinate people.”
Their obstinate fruit was to hypocritically stand on Moses, and the commandments of the law, they were not keeping, nor as Paul, able to keep and rejecting the lawgiver who stood before them. Moses was not allowed to enter and he will indict them as Jesus says.
Killing the Messiah was assuredly the revelation of their actual adherence to the law, as Paul says in Romans 7. Paul un-hypocritically admitted he could not save himself through the law. Get rid of the slave woman and her son.
Where Jesus told the apostles to go into all nations and preach this gospel, in Acts 10: 1-48 we find Peter making justification for entering Cornelius’ house, as a Gentile. A few of them went but some stayed on at the seminary in Jerusalem.
In the previous chapter Jesus knowing the end of the law (70 A.D.) was soon to come, sent Ananias to restore Paul to sight:
Acts 9: 15-19:
“But the Lord said to Ananias, “Go! This man is my chosen instrument to proclaim my name to the Gentiles and their kings and to the people of Israel. 16 I will show him how much he must suffer for my name.”
17 Then Ananias went to the house and entered it. Placing his hands on Saul, he said, “Brother Saul, the Lord—Jesus, who appeared to you on the road as you were coming here—has sent me so that you may see again and be filled with the Holy Spirit.” 18 Immediately, something like scales fell from Saul’s eyes, and he could see again. He got up and was baptized, 19 and after taking some food, he regained his strength.”
We find Paul spending a few days with the disciples (not the apostles) in Damascus and then beginning to preach eventually without attending seminary in Jerusalem with those under the law, THE CONSTITUTION of Israel, still in full force until 70 A.D., and then he went into Asia. Paul learned the gospel from Jesus by means of revelation as Jesus prophesied in John 16: 7-14. Paul was sanctified by means Jesus prophesied in John 17:
“Sanctify them by your truth; your word is truth. 18 As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world. 19 For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified. 20 My prayer is not for them alone. 21 I pray also for them who will believe in me through their message, 21 that all of them may be one Father, you and you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you sent me.”
“I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— 23 I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.”
24 “Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world.”
Later in Acts 15, we find Paul forcefully teaching the gospel of grace to the other apostles. We will pick up here, next time. Please leave any comments or questions below and I will answer you as soon as I can. I am also writing on another page and finally making huge breakthroughs in how to sell my books and eventually adding video as that site is for assisting creators to raise the cross in place of all the religious confusion and the mostly fruitless church. Thank you for visiting my site and thank you for reading. Chris 5/11/2020.
