Because You Are Lukewarm – Tiny End Times Rapture?

Making Jesus Vomit

Hear Ye, Hear Ye!  Tiny End Time Rapture.  Because Jesus says you are Lukewarm.  Lord I was made to walk a very crooked path all across the Western United States through my childhood.

I have just about completely lost my patience here, today Lord.  You have 2.4 Billion people in this world claiming you.  I read, on the other hand that you’re about to puke.  I get it.

I don’t like rotting and rotten meat in a Tupper Ware container in the refrigerator either.  The smell must disgust the Father.  He sent you to pay the sin debt through your patient suffering.

The Religious Missed It

Pharisee
Pharisee

The abuse came primarily from the religious know it all priests and the expert teachers of the law.  They focused in on the letter of the prophesy you inspired, and the letter of the law you sent.

The words mysteriously veiled to your single identity and the twin arrival judgments. In your prophesied arrivals coming first as a man of sorrows on a donkey and soon for those who overcome and for all those at Smyrna and Philadelphia.

Then, as King of Kings and Lord of Lords in your glorified and majestic absolute authority as Almighty God.  The mystery to keep the enemy and his servants from understanding.

If Satan, the temple officials and the Romans, those who served him had seen through the mystery and understood, they’d have placed you in protective custody to prevent you dying by any means.

The Veil

The veil separating the holy place from the holy of holies, was torn top to bottom at the moment you died stating as the most reliable witness, John there at the foot of the cross testifies, “It is finished.”

Jesus, the atonement sacrifice who took away the sins of the world, rose from the dead after he descended into Hell preached to the prisoners there, meaning Abraham’s bosom.

Then he rose from the dead.  Proved it to Thomas and the other apostles by 40 days of his appearing. Those apostles, all but one, died for the testimony at the hands of Satan’s servants.

Jesus the risen Lord sent his Spirit to empower that testimony to produce fruit.  Fruit being those born again of the Spirit through faith in Jesus and the sacrifice, the death, burial, resurrection of Jesus the Son of God.

Seven Churches

In the past couple days I have written about the seven churches in Asia (Turkey) seat of the Ottoman Empire (Constantine ensured his city was built on seven hills, as Rome, check the history) which destroyed the Roman Empire, leg two” on the Nebuchadnezzar vision.  Revelation 18 describes a sea port.  Rome proper is not a port city.  Mysterious.

That vision revealed by Daniel, who told Neb the dream and it’s meaning in such detail concerning subsequent history that skeptics claim it was written as a college history assignment after the fact.

My mathematical revelations gathered from the work of others, investigating as the Spirit of truth led me along proves beyond doubt (any reasonable court of law on any day you choose … lukewarm? Bold as a Lion) objective proof the Bible is God’s Word and Jesus is God’s Son from Daniel and John, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Isaiah, Ezra, Nehemiah, David the King, Moses, Hosea, Amos etc.

Jesus Convicted

“I can convict Jesus as the Almighty Son of God on the objective evidence in any reasonable court of law.”  Chris Queen

Risen Lord Jesus
Arisen

Church One

So why the lukewarm response?  In the Ephesian church apostolic age, they were rebuked for falling from their first love and the warning was removal of their lamp stand.  There, we find the clergy already trying to create their kingdoms of the earth overbearing the laity.

Let’s see, “… build a tower, the one true church, reaching the heavens and make a name for ourselves.”  Fits pretty well I think.

Church Two

Heading Two, the church in Smyrna where refusal to burn a smidgen of incense and declare Caesar as Lord would result in government abuse, and even death the Jews there exempt; tattled on the Christians who refused.  The Lord praised Smyrna for their faithfulness.  “I know your afflictions and your poverty, yet you are rich!”  No threat of removing lamps etc.  Not lukewarm nor denying their first love in Smyrna.  The persecuted church still exists in our day.

Church Three

Heading Three, the Church in Pergamum.  Baal finds its foundation in Babel.  It is the ancient religion of rebellion and man’s attempt to overcome God.  Israel eventually featured child sacrifice to Molech at the high places.  Favor was gained with the gods by sacrificing your first son.

By the way Satan had, previous to Jesus planted the sons of the god myths so that our brilliant professors could reveal it in our day as though our religion is merely a better organized narrative of the reinvented myths used by ancients to explain their existence. “Everybody knows evolution is how we got here.” Satan is very clever.

There in the church age of Constantine we find not only one making a name for himself but Ponitifex Maximus, chief Pontiff Constantine where we find the first statues of Mary and the saints.

Constantine was also Emperor of Rome.  Julius Caesar had been elected as a Pontifiex Maximus in the Pagan religion of Rome.  Constantine is the Prime Example of the teaching of the Nicolatians.

Constantine, a Syrian, appointed himself the first pope then presiding, with no Roman Bishops at all, present, over the Counsel of Nicea in 325.  The claim of ascent from Peter is object nonsense.  Wikipedia is incoherent as is Britannica because much intrigue was involved so I’ll leave it to historians. Constantine sending his momma to Jerusalem, then him destroying the original place of the resurrection; and building the Church of Sepulcher at the site of a Pagan Monument inside the boundaries of Jerusalem.

Pontifex Satanicus there gave power to the bishop of Rome and this led to the one true church that isn’t.  A lie.  No I do not hate catholics but their leaders are deceived deceivers.

Church Four

Thyatira was the rise of the doctrine taught by demons as Paul tells Timothy, in I Timothy 4:

The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron. They forbid people to marry and order them to abstain from certain foods, which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and who know the truth. For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, because it is consecrated by the word of God and prayer.

If you point these things out to the brothers and sisters, you will be a good minister of Christ Jesus, nourished on the truths of the faith and of the good teaching that you have followed. Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives’ tales; rather, train yourself to be godly. For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come. This is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance. 10 That is why we labor and strive, because we have put our hope in the living God, who is the Savior of all people, and especially of those who believe.

11 Command and teach these things.” (NIV)

Come Back

 

The present Pope has made his sweet appeal for Protestants to return to the foal (whose foal?), for a second helping of what they received for several centuries, in Europe and also Jews in Judah, to bow before him as God’s heir on the imaginary throne of Peter.  John saw the woman on a different seat.

The Vatican
Vatican

And the Lukewarm are taking him up on it, along with the deceivers in Islam (they will take him for a ride, Revelation 18) and the Hindu leaders and others joining together, visualize whirled peas.  “Mystery Babylon” all faiths of the world, he claims.  It’s foundations actually Baal.  Temples filled with shrine prostitutes all over Byzantine it became the vacation destination of many, including priests.  (Go Google it for yourself.)  So what did they do with children from such worship?  You guessed it.

Jesus, the Almighty, spoke to John about seven churches each with their own issues not one true church.  Faith in Jesus as Paul, appointed by Glorified Jesus as “THE” apostle to the gentiles (Acts 9: 15) founded churches all through the world without any Nicolatian hierarchy.  The Holy Spirit is poured out on all flesh, not on a handful of priests in a European (or is it Asian?) City.

And a plethora of falsehoods also from transubstantiation (11th and 12th Century Papal Origin) to the worship of saints and Mary to their claim of exclusive power to forgive sin and selling and buying indulgences to excuse sin.  Acts 9: 15:

“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.” (NIV)

Church Five

Martin Luther spearheaded the reformation due to the doctrines taught by demons by the hypocritical liars whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron, just like Paul said:

“Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron. They forbid people to marry and order them to abstain from certain foods, which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and who know the truth.” (NIV)

 

Before I knew who Jesus was I heard Catholics can’t eat meat on Friday.  And their priests, virtual little lord jesus’ in their estimation, abstain from sex (allegedly) and do not marry.

So Sardis was the reformation church and you would think??? But here’s what Jesus said to the church in Sardis:

“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. Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have found your deeds unfinished in the sight of my God. 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.

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. 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. Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” (NIV)

A Dead Church

Sardis was dead per the Lord after around 30 years of Paul’s establishment of Ephesus which gave birth to the other six churches that Jesus here addresses in Revelation. I am going to pick on a church in the town I was in through my high school years, without naming it.

It had/has this reputation for being alive. Big, nice building on the edge of a very rich neighborhood. Perhaps and I presume it once had been alive.  One of the leaders I met through one of my peers was a high powered doctor pf psychology.  He had been a preacher in this well known denomination.

His daughter was decidedly counterculture or I would never have met her father.  The daughter was into initiating boys into the wonders of sex.  She boasted she liked variety.  I guess she would be termed a Jezebel.  No I did not!  Later she got saved and became the mother of several and the faithful Christian wife of one man.

I later met her fathers’ brother, many years later, in an evangelical church.  We discussed his niece me asking about her.  We had been close when we were both saved in our twenties. I mentioned his brother and that church he’d been one of the presbyters in.

He rolled his eyes and said, Oh my.  Seems being a member of the family, and himself, alive in Christ the reputation of that church as alive was the very lie Jesus reveals to John about Sardis.

That denomination is now famous in recent years of ordaining homosexuals, it is enthusiastically involved in the entire liberal agenda in our day including Planned Parenthood.

That denomination no longer upholds the word, respects life, or preaches the gospel to include the putting off of the old self and putting on the new self through rebirth, a new creation in Christ by faith and being sanctified by the Spirit.

A horrific sinner could walk into such a church, find acceptance and live out his persisting unregenerate sinful experience to his death and eternal destruction, in a dead church.  No salvation in Christ Jesus can be found in there.  Though there may be a remnant.

Church Six

The other church aside from Smyrna that found praise and no rebuke from the Lord, Philadelphia.

“To the Church in Philadelphia

“To the angel of the church in Philadelphia write:

These are the words of him who is holy and true, who holds the key of David. What he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open. I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name. I will make those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews though they are not, but are liars—I will make them come and fall down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you. 10 Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth.  [The rapture.  John 11; I Cor. 15; I Thess. 4; Revelation 4]

11 I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown. 12 The one who is victorious I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will they leave it. I will write on them the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on them my new name. 13 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” (NIV)

From The Moorings by Ed Rikard, not Endorsing Him

“The roots of Philadelphia go back to the seventeenth century, when the first [independent] Baptist [obviously a Baptist] churches appeared. The Moravian movement and the Great Awakening in the eighteenth century, as well as the many revivals in the nineteenth century, made Philadelphia a strong presence in the Christian world. One offshoot of this tradition has been the modern fundamentalist movement in America. The churches embodying Philadelphia have been distinctive in several respects.

    1. In government, they have been largely independent of outside control.
    2. They have been extremely missionary minded. In fact, the standard view, seeing the churches as representing seven consecutive periods in the Church Age, is that Philadelphia corresponds to the age of great missionary enterprise, from 1800 to 1950 and afterward.
    3. They have been very interested in prophecy and generally, from the late 1800s onward, have believed that they existed in the Last Days.
    4. They have been marked by a keen interest in Bible study. A wealth of good Christian books has come out of this tradition, more so than from any other tradition except perhaps Sardis.
    5. They have been unusual in their commitment to both personal and ecclesiastical separation. The well-known rules against worldly practices belong especially to the Philadelphian churches.
    6. The laity have always played an especially prominent role. Among the Moravians, every man was a preacher, and throughout the history of Philadelphia, many of its foremost preachers lacked formal theological training. Many, like D. L. Moody, even lacked ordination.”  Ed Rikard, The Moorings (A Bible Study Organization).

“If the seven churches in Asia symbolize seven branches of Christianity, what specifically are these branches?

Ephesus, first to appear in the Church Age, must be the apostolic church, which no longer exists.

Smyrna represents the kind of church that faces severe persecution. Churches fitting this pattern have existed throughout church history since the first or second century, and they still exist today. Examples in the past include the Waldensians [Prior to the reformation], the Anabaptists [1525 A.D.], and the Bohemian Brethren (Hussites). In the modern world, the primary examples have been hidden enclaves of fellowshipping believers in Muslim and Communist countries. These enclaves may meet informally without a pastor, and any denominational lines that divided the people previously may become blurred. If Smyrna exists at Christ’s return, we may presume that all of its members with true understanding of the gospel will be raptured, since they have identified with Christ at great personal cost, proving that their hearts truly belong to Him. Christ’s warning that Smyrna would undergo “tribulation” is perhaps a suggestion that during the actual period known as the Tribulation, Smyrna will be the only church still on the earth.

Pergamos represents churches that exalt experience over the written Word. They first emerged in the Montanist movement of the second century and they have reemerged in the Pentecostal and Charismatic movements of our day. All are tongues-speaking churches. Notice that the Lord is severely critical of this stream of Christianity.

Thyatira stands for all churches that are ecclesiastical in government, liturgical in worship, and medieval in superstition. These arose in the fourth century after Christianity won the patronage of the Roman emperor. Among them is a certain Jezebel that the Lord hates. The original Jezebel slew the true prophets of God (1 Kings 18:4, 13). In Jesus’ letter, she stands for the papal church, which has a long history of persecuting true believers. The toll martyred by Rome runs into millions. (Please understand that this interpretation does not support hatred of Catholics. We should love Catholics no less than we love others. Christ does not censure the people in Catholic churches, but the religious system that enthralls them and keeps them away from Biblical truth.) The two modern churches that embody Thyatira are the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox.

Sardis embraces the churches that came out of the Reformation, including Episcopalian, Lutheran, and all known as Presbyterian or Reformed. Since they have always had an excessive respect for human learning and human tradition, they have found it difficult to resist becoming intellectual, cold, and worldly. Also, most adopted a form of theology which has blinded them to the meaning of prophecy. Therefore, the Lord rebukes them for being ignorant of their place in history and for failing to watch.”  Ed Rikard

Christ’s Command:  “Keep Watch.”  [Christ’s commands are not Moses’ Tablets Hebrews 7: 11-22]

 

Finally we arrive at the Laodicean apostacy.  While the world is full of those who claim it is the legalistic adherence to commandments and they’ll quote you endlessly from Matthew, Luke and Mark about commandments also from James, their favorite:  (That is Partially stated and misapplied)

“… faith without works is dead.”  (Always their reply when faith is raised above the Ten Commandments)

To the Church in Laodicea

14 “To the angel of the church in Laodicea write:

These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God’s creation. 15 I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! 16 So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. 17 You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. 18 I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.

19 Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent. 20 Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.

21 To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat down with my Father on his throne. 22 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” (NIV)

While the world is full of those who claim it is the legalistic adherence to commandments and they’ll quote you endlessly from Matthew, Luke and Mark about commandments also from James, their favorite:  (Partially stated and misapplied)

“… faith without works is dead.”  [Go read Galatians]

That is only part (less than half) of the verse and lifted out of James 2 and its context, in his dissertation on not showing favoritism to the rich and giving to and not insulting the poor.  I used to get mad that people could be so ignorant.

Paul speaking of our day actually stated what this “great falling away” entails and ironically (Satanically) it is 180 degrees in the other direction.  Here at Galatians 5: 4, 5:

“You who are trying to be justified by the law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace. For through the Spirit we eagerly await by faith the righteousness for which we hope.” (NIV)

I spent years in a holiness church where the legacy members are holy, just ask them, but Paul and the rest of us “await by faith, through the spirit, the righteousness for which we hope.”

Lukewarm?  Lukewarm on the fact Jesus’ blood is the entire substance of salvation and the Spirit of truth is the seal guaranteeing our inheritance.  That it is a gift from God (Ephesians 2: 8-10) that it is not by works so that all these who boast will be told “away from me, I never knew you, workers of iniquity” because we become God’s workmanship and because putting the misunderstanding claiming requirement to produce the fruit of the Spirit as the doorway is laying a stumbling block before those trying to enter in. You have a church where the craftsman of evil has given the church a paint job to polarize the world because its ugly.

They say you can’t be a Christian because you can’t be good enough.

You’ll find myriad preachers both the educated (not a fan of higher education, we’ll talk more about that in the future) non educated screaming repent as the word has been mis-translated from metanoia which means “aftermind” to “DO PENANCE” by the Roman translators who believed the doings are the salvation [Jezebel].  The works are fruit of the Spirit, however.

Romans 10: 3, 4:

Since they did not know the righteousness of God and sought to establish their own, they did not submit to God’s righteousness. Christ is the culmination of the law so that there may be righteousness for everyone who believes.”

Speaking here about the Jews who chose bondage under law over faith in Jesus.  The world is full of those claiming to be Christians doing exactly the same. 

“Righteousness for everyone who believes!”  Lukewarm on righteousness, by faith!  Jesus cursed the fig tree and said “No one will get fruit from it again.”

Then we have the Red Letter Idolaters, some of whom have never read any further than the Four Gospel Accounts remaining Lukewarm on Jesus’ words there.  It is very good to read the gospels because they tell us who Jesus is and what he did.  Many things there are universal truths.  But everything pertaining to the law of the Jews is not for Gentiles, never under law nor taught by Jesus because of it.  Ask him!:

Matthew 10: 5:

“These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: “Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans. Go rather to the lost sheep of Israel.” (NIV)

Matthew 15: 24:

“He answered, “I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel.” (NIV)

Luke warm on Jesus as a minster to Judah and the lost sheep of Israel, exclusively, while he was in Israel. Reading teaching polluted with Jewish law outside the boundaries and time when that law was dispensed and remained active. Rocket Scientists!  Is there any Mosaic Law without the nation of Israel?  NO!  Is there any Mosaic Law without Levite Priests?  NO!  Is there any Mosaic Law without the Temple?  NO!

The Spirit uses the commandments as Paul (Acts 9: 15 … Jesus’s Command.) explains in Romans 7.  Jesus lets a person know they are dead in their sin without hope so they can be made alive in Christ.  Then, the law has done its work.  Don’t be a foolish Galatian: Galatians 3: 1-14.

So when Jesus stood on the mount and said:

Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18 For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.” 

Was there Mosaic Law existent and in force on that day?  YES.  

Was there any Mosaic Law for those with faith in Jesus, the instant after John 19: 30:

“It is finished!”  NO! The atonement was then fulfilled.

Matthew 27: 51:

“At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom.” (NIV) 

Wrapping this up, we’ll talk more about the law and what it does tomorrow.  Here’s what it cannot do.  Paul (Apostle to the Gentiles … Stop being Luke warm) at Galatians 5:

You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love. 14 For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” 15 If you bite and devour each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.

16 So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. 17 For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

19 The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.

 

Thank you for visiting my site and reading my posts.  Please leave your valued comments below and any questions also and I will answer you.  Many thanks to those of you who are buying my books the world over.  Thank you again.  Ask the Lord Jesus to cure you of any tendency to Lukewarmness and he will answer your prayer.  He will clothe you in white linen and make you to reign with him, just as his word says.  Chris.

 

“Church historian and theologian David Wells had called our contemporary generation of pastors ‘the new disablers’ because they have abandoned the traditional role of the pastor as a broker of truth to his congregation and replaced it with a new managerial model drawn from the professional world which emphasizes leadership abilities, marketing, and administration.

As a result the church has produced a generation of Christians for whom theology is irrelevant and whose lives outside the church do not differ practically from those of atheists.” — William Lane Craig
