A Commentary on Psalms 27 Evangelist Danny Louis Abaldo D.Min
Introduction Psalms 27 Message In A Nut Shell, Confidence For Needed Deliverance From An Enemy
This Psalm, we know nothing of the exact occasion for it, as we only have the heading, ' A Psalm of David' This is common in many of King David’s Psalms. The Psalm is broken into three parts.
1. David’s confidence and total trust in the lord, and his praise To Jehovah, ( vr. 1-6 )
2. Davids Prayer, petion for delievernce his current need , ( vr. 7-12 )
3. A full circle , at the psalms end, ending in confidence and faith as the start of the psalm expressed.( vr. 13-14)
It is a song of cheerful hope, well fitted for those in trial who have learned to lean upon the Almighty arm. (Spurgen)
Psa 27:1 A Psalm of David. The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
The AV, American Standard Version, 1897, Always properly translated Jehovah, instead of KJV use of God, When it is proper and correct in its rendering of Jehovah.
For some reason the KJV simply does not follow the proper rendering of the name of God, His name is Jehovah. This is not sacred name theology, its no mystery, it is a simple fact. Gods proper name is Jehovah. You cannot take the bible and every time it says God, or Lord simply translates it as Jehovah, as in many places other names of Jehovah are used. My name is Dan, if someone yelled across the street, Jim, I would not look, as my name is Dan, if someone yelled, Dan, I would look . This is not to say, if the Gentile Church says lord, or God, the lord will not hear your prayer, it is only proper to use, in its right place and in prayer the lords proper name. He did not reveal his name until much later in history, why, no one knows, but now we know and sadly the KJV does a great disservice in its proper rendering. Oddly the JPS, ( Jewish Publication Society renders Jehovah hear as Lord and not Jehovah.
The original Hebrew word as Strong's gives says it plainly, why translations do not is a mystery.
From H1961; (the) self Existent or eternal; Jehovah, Jewish national name of God: - Jehovah, the Lord. Compare H3050, H3069.
Vr. 1 A Psalm of David, Jehovah is my light and my salvation.
In the N.T. Jesus is our light and salvation, provided by Jehovah. To the Christian we read this song with the N.T. shedding light on the wording of the writer, as Messiah was not yet come. Jesus said, I am the light of life, Jesus said , I am the way the truth and life, no man comes to the father, but through me. It is salvation by faith alone in the blood of our lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Jesus is our light, we are to also be lights set up on a hill as He shines in us, so we are not to hide the light, but let it shine forth in the present dark world we live in. Jesus said, ' I will never leave you, or forsake you, he is our present King that is lord of our life. The lords name , in my name you shall cast out daemons, lay hands on the sick and they shall recover and if you drink any deadly thing you shall not be harmed, (mark Ch 16) We are given authority in the name of Jesus, we are not to be in fear. Just as David says in verse 1. whom shall I fear, due to our light and salvation.
Jehovah is the strength of my life.
Strength not proper render. The JPS text correctly renders the word as the Hebrew does.
The LORD is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? Stronghold. Hebrew render is as follows.
מעז מעז מעוּז מעוז
mâ‛ôz mâ‛ûz mâ‛ôz mâ‛ûz
maw-oze', maw-ooz', maw-oze', maw-ooz'
From H5810; a fortified place; figuratively a defence: - force, fort (-ress), rock, strength (-en), (X most) strong (hold).
This is the correct render; other translations give more credence to this Hebrew words root word as it says.
A primitive root; to be stout (literally or figuratively): - harden, impudent, prevail, strengthen (self), be strong.
The lord Jehovah is our stronghold, this will bear out as the correct render in the verses to follow. Thank the lord He is our stronghold, when we are in desperate need of a place of safety.
Psa 27:2 When evil-doers came upon me to eat up my flesh, Even mine adversaries and my foes, they stumbled and fell. (AV)
Past tense, David is reflecting on past protection and victory, it serves us well to look back at previous divine interventions and graces of our lord to build our confidence and faith in present troubles and future troubles. David says they stumbled and fell before, and so I have confidence my enemies will again stumble and fall.
The only time we should ever look back, is at the goodness and love, salvation, miracles, needs meet and the faithfulness of our lord in past days. What the lord did before, he will do again, and this builds our faith muscles.
Jesus is still the same yesterday, today and forever, Jehovah changes not. We serve a lord that never changes, never moves, man at times may distance himself in disobedient or spiritual dry times, when we are not in pray daily, our spiritual senses become dull.
When dark clouds in our life are above, above the clouds the lord still shines forth, in our clouds, this silver lining should give hope, soon all will change and we will see the sun again. The lord is still on the throne 24/7 He has never left, took a vacation and our lord Jesus is forever making holy intersession for the saints of the lord.
Psa 27:3 Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.( KJV )
Before the actual conflict, while as yet the battle is untried, the warrior's heart, being held in suspense, is very liable to become fluttered. The encamping host often inspires greater dread than the same host in actual affray.
Young tells us of some -
“Who feel a thousand deaths in fearing one.”
Doubtless the shadow of anticipated trouble is, to timorous minds, a more prolific source of sorrow than the trouble itself, but faith puts a strengthening plaster to the back of courage, and throws out of the window the dregs of the cup of trembling. “Though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.” When it actually comes to push of pike, faith's shield will ward off the blow; and if the first brush should be but the beginning of a war, yet faith's banners will wave in spite of the foe. Though battle should succeed battle, and one campaign should be followed by another, the believer will not be dismayed at the length of the conflict. Reader, this third verse is the comfortable and logical inference from the second, confidence is the child of experience. Have you been delivered out of great perils? then set up your ensign, wait at your watch-fire, and let the enemy do his worst. ( Spurgen)
Note ; the words, my heart shall not fear and in this will I be confident. The psalm’s are filled with no fear, trust and confidence. As Spurgen aptly said, 'Doubtless the shadow of anticipated trouble is, to timorous minds, a more prolific source of sorrow than the trouble itself'
Youngs words are wise and true as well, “Who feel a thousand deaths in fearing one.”
How often do we find ourselves in so much fear concerning a matter only to find out in the end, it never happened, or was not as bad as we thought it would be. The only thing to fear is fear itself. 2Tim 1:7 God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power, love and self control, ( proper rendering from Greek) We should not have a spirit of timidity, fear, this is not from the spirit of the lord, but our flesh and the Devil. At times we all fear, this is normal, but to linger in fear is a lack of faith. Heb 11:6 For it is imposable to please the lord without faith, for all those who come to Jehovah must believe that he is, and he is the rewarder of them that diligently seek him. This is a call to, have faith in the lord. Be it the size of a mustard seed, it will be sufficient as that seed is watered, and cultivated in the study of scripture and prayer and praise.
When Elijah’s savant opened the door and saw the large army surrounding the place they had lodged for the night, he was in great fear, Elijah said there are more with us then those that are against us, yes if the lord be for us who can be against us.
Elijah than prayed, " Lord open his eyes" the servant than saw the great host surrounding in the lower sky all around the mountain landscape, the chariots of fire.
How we need to ask our dear lord when we are in fear, to open our blind eyes, blinded by fear, that we may see in our spiritual eyes and know, we have more with us then those that are against us, today this is the same case, we must have the eyes of faith and confidence in the lords protection and presence. Sometimes all we can do is cry out, lord I believe, help thou my unbelief, and the lord will help our unbelief and open our eyes that we may know and believe.
Eph 1:17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him;
Eph 1:18 having the eyes of your heart enlightened, that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,
Eph 1:19 and what the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to that working of the strength of his might
Eph 1:20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,
Eph 1:21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:
Eph 1:22 And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,
Eph 1:23 Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.
Psa 27:4 One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.
To the Christian, we are the temple of the Holy Spirit, we are the ark with wings and temple with feet, where we go, the lord goes. The kingdom of the lord is now within, in the O.T. it was without.
Where two or more are gathered in my name there, I am in the midst of them. No matter how small your Church, your home Church, or a couple, when you meet and have service, when you come together in Jesus name he manifests his presence.
In the O.T. it was the city Jerusalem and the Holy Temple. Today we have complete full access by Christ’s blood. We can enter the holy of holies. We come in the prayer closet, shut the door behind us, as the lord said, when you enter your prayer, close the door behind you, for the lord that hears in secret will reward publicly, in this life or the next.
We have the freedom to pray, when we no longer do, we will have to dare to be a Daniel, refuse to bow to the Idol of antichrist, and pray. If thrown to a lions den we will encounter angles going before us. This is confidence, this is faith building. If the lords will is to have us die, we are immediately with our lord, and the whole thing, this life and its sorrow, troubles, sickness will be over, in the twinkle of an eye, as Paul said, " to be absent from the body, is to be present with the lord".
Psa 27:5 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.
A great cross reference Psalm to this verse and the whole Psalm is Ps. 91. Meditate and read it often. In this verse, we read in trouble we shall be hid in Jehovah’s pavilion.
This verse gives an excellent reason for the Psalmist's desire after communion with God, namely, that he was thus secured in the hour of peril. “For in the time of trouble,” that needy time, that time when others forsake me, “he shall hide me in his pavilion:” he shall give me the best of shelter in the worst of danger. The royal pavilion was erected in the centre of the army, and around it all the mighty men kept guard at all hours; thus in that divine sovereignty which almighty power is sworn to maintain, the believer peacefully is hidden, hidden not by himself furtively, but by the king, who hospitably entertains him. ( Spurgen)
Hebrew ; He Shall Hide-H6845
A primitive root; to hide (by covering over); by implication to hoard or reserve; figuratively to deny; specifically (favorably) to protect, (unfavorably) to lurk: - esteem, hide (-den one, self), lay up, lurk (be set) privily, (keep) secret (-ly, place).
Hebrew; me in his pavilion- H5520
From H5526; a hut (as of entwined boughs); also a lair: - covert, den, pavilion, tabernacle.
The proper Hebrew rendering hear is tabernacle and as we read in the next portion the word tabernacles is used all in harmony, the root word serves to bring out some important light on the word.
A primitive root; properly to entwine as a screen; by implication to fence in, cover over, (figuratively) protect: - cover, defense, defend, hedge in, join together, set, shut up.
This follows the rest of the verse in perfect harmony, as doe’s the main word, tabernacle.
In the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; Clark says,” In the secret of his tabernacle - Were there no other place, he would put me in the holy of holies, so that an enemy would not dare to approach me".
The holy of Holies is meant hear, and in the O.T. if anyone but the high priest dared to enter in the holy of holies , they would be struck dead, as well as the high priest if he was not sanctified, this is why when the high priest would enter the holy of holies one time a year on Yom Kipper, day of atonement, they put a rope around him, on the rope were bells and pomegranates, If the bells rang out, the others knew to pull out the dead priest. Thank the lord for N.T. grace and the free access to the holy place.
In The N.T. again this holy place is wherever we make it, it is not a building, a Church, it is anywhere the born again believer is, the place we enter to pray, be it outdoors, our home, a room, a cubical at work, a machine, or a mop, it becomes the holy of holies . This is the presence of the lord, this means not so much a geographical location, nor a certain place that we find our true refuge and hiding place, it is the presence of the lord that is our hiding place, our tabernacle, our shield our buckler.
The lord’s presence. We may have to closed the door behind us, wherever we may be in days ahead and pray, the blood is on the door posts of where you live ,if indeed it is on your hearts, you are in your safe place , in the very presence of the lord. This is the secret, it is not a safe haven, or hiding place in the mountains, and it is the lit, presence of the lord as your safety, wherever you are.
There may be place of safety as Pella was and as Goshen was, but many may not be able to get to these places in the days ahead, let it suffice and give confidence the door closed, in humble prayer, we are in the safe haven, our divine hiding place.
Part A, Part B to come
WE ARE NOT IN THE TRIBULATION NOW And A Discernment Test- Also PT 2. On So Called Watchmen Like Steve Quayle
I have had it with all these who are teaching we are already in the tribulation.
I posted concerning the role of a N.T. Watchmen, I said what a watchmen was, and is to do. I also said all theses current, so called watchmen, all, use non bible sources, and all say we are in the tribulation right now, only one or two, believe in a rapture so they do not believe we are in the tribulation as 90% of the others do.
I mentioned the worldwide strange sounds anyone can hear on YT, and many say these are the trumpets of the seven-year tribulation. The most popular, well-known so-called watchman Steve Quayle uses more non-bible martial, like the book of Enoch and his Giants and star gate doctrine. I heard this very popular, considered number 1. main person, Steve Q, and he started the whole current so called watchmen ministry and, or call. He said we are already in the bible period of the bowls-Viles, of wrath being poured out, holy cow.
This fear monger scares the heck out of people, he also twists the bible, I have heard him speak hundreds of times, up until one month ago at a watchman's conference, only after this, has he stopped saying what he has been saying 40 plus years. On every interview, every radio show, coast to coast, (where he belongs) lol. This so-called watchmen speaks a lot of truth, but uses to support his theories pagan sources and esp. the book of Enoch. He always, and I mean always, twists one particular verse. For the last month Steve has been keeping most of what he has said on broadcasts, true and simple, that is a good thing.
I just heard a while ago, right after he started to sound as if maybe he changed, a whole show of the zombie plague that will be an actual thing sprayed on us to make mankind all zombies, and he used a very odd verse for it.
Spray what they will, we have the helmet of salvation and we are given free will, not be against our will, or the lord’s divine protection, so our lord could not in holy righteousness allow us to become infected with a real zombie virus.
In the same show he talked of there being 72 gates, portals, star gates, on earth and man is , according to Revelations unleashing these fallen angles of power, read the true story, an angle from heaven, not man, comes down to the river Euphrates and unleashes three demons, that is the lords doing, unlocking the strong angles in the river, not man, he says man is doing it and has already done it, 100% non scriptural.
He said an inside Intel told him when they powered up C.E.R.N. a portal opened and these eye witnesses said they were scared to death as they saw on the other side of this portal, star gate, evil creatures. C.E.R.N. is not a good thing, but again hear say, and the portal has been opened, and there are 72 of these star gates that man has created to let loose the demons on us, what can I say, if you believe this stuff , I pray for you.
I was sad to listen to him go right back to his bizarre and very poor bible exposition on these events, and why? To scare you to death, I smell a true sy-op, like Alex Jones, these all sell gold, silver, food, books, hay if we are In, the near end, of the tribulation, why are they still sealing stuff? Ask yourself that, it's all about the money and using sources in the Intel world to tell the world via the internet, what they want to be told and it is all fear, so this is not of the lord
Please note; what a zombie is, it is traced to Voodoo, the queen bee, would give her servants a drug that made them sort of mindless than sent out to the field at night to harvest her crops, this is historical fact and what a zombie is, a zombie is not one who eats human flesh, do the research, this is cannibalism and demon possession, not a true zombie, look up on Wikipedia Voodoo, and see what a zombie is, they did not eat flesh, but were workers to work the crops. The zombie thing is from movies and are indeed not zombies as said, but demon possessed cannibals. Truth and a fact, look for yourself.
As in the days of Noah, he always stops in mid verse, and goes right into the book of Enoch and says we will all be devoured by Giants and unless the days be cut short, due to these monsters, no flesh would survive. Do you see what I mean, my burden, my soul cries out, so many are being deceived by him and others? This is how false teaching is done, let us break this down - A discernment teaching and test
1. Start with a verse, or part of a verse, or part of a Chapter, a bible truth, but not given in context.
2. Uses Pagan writing, prophecies from non Christian sources, and the book of Enoch, or the ultra pagan book called 'the book Of Giants' Google that one and see its source, it will blow your mind, also the Hopi Indian Revelations, the lord bless the precious true native Americans, they were given a raw deal. But they worship the creation and not the creator, Pagan worship of all living spirits, the sun the moon etc. Next they use Intel from top secret sources, and code names for high Intel , like four star Generals, sources only known to them, and in the inner circle of what’s really going on. The Book Of Jubilees, ever read that? Intensely into dreams, visions and prophecy and place them equal with the bible. A lot of fear, fear, fear and no solution, but were all dead, real edifying, this promotes the NWO agenda to spread fear, and the devil uses fear, to put you in a hopeless state so you will want to die or just toss in the towel, so the effect is not of our lord at all.
3. Back to other verses, and he repeats over and over, never in context and more on non biblical, pagan writings, a verse, or in this example half of a verse, than in come the Book of Enoch and all flesh killed by Giants, they are said by his Intel, deep in a cave in N.Mexico there are hives of these giants is stasis, waiting to be let go.
4. In this example we read the half verse used, and than to Enoch. Discernment test folks ready.
Read post on False book of Enoch,
Read post on False book of Enoch,
Jesus said, as in the days of Noah, so shall it be in the last days ( They end there and to Enoch they go) Jesus in the same verse said what?, As in the days of Noah, what is taking place? Eating, drinking, marring, given in marriage and than comes sudden destruction.
I called this so called watchman out on this, and posted why do you always quote just half of the verse and go to Enoch, if your correct and all flesh is eaten alive by these giants, how is it JESUS said, not Enoch, that there would be eating and drinking, marriages? understand now, do you see how these wolves in sheep’s clothing twist the word and interject pagan doctrine to scare you to death? No mention of Being eaten by Giants, but men eating, drinking and marrying, this is what was going on in the days of Noah, and this is what Jesus said, what Jesus says he means.
Next, I am speechless to hear so many, so called watchmen, all say we are well into the tribulation, how can this be, seal one has not been opened yet, seal one starts the tribulation and is the coming of the antichrist, where is the antichrist, the seven year peace treaty, the Temple?
Many say the Anti Christ is not a person, but a system, like the NWO, and they say the temple is not a literal temple, I also wrote on that and posted a video teaching on this.
Now this is no new orthodox theology I am writing about, It was recorded in the Anti-Nicene Father in 200A.D, just before 200A.D some of this orthodox bible prophecy was clearly understood by the Apostle Johns Disciples. Look at what this portion of the anti-Nicene Father Iranaeus said around 200A.D. Remember, he was the disciple of Clement and Polycarp, who were direct disciples of the Apostle John, the one who was given the book of Revelations by the lord, so I think the verbal teachings and truths they learned, far out weigh these current false teachers and false watchmen and prophecy teachers.
Chap. XXV. — The Fraud, Pride, and Tyrannical Kingdom of Antichrist, as Described by Daniel and Paul.
1. And not only by the particulars already mentioned, but also by means of the events which shall occur in the time of Antichrist is it shown that he, being an apostate and a robber, is anxious to be adored as God; and that, although a mere slave, he wishes himself to be proclaimed as a king.
For he (Antichrist) being endued with all the power of the devil, shall come, not as a righteous king, nor as a legitimate king, [i.e., one] in subjection to God, but an impious, unjust, and lawless one; as an apostate, iniquitous and murderous; as a robber, concentrating in himself [all] satanic apostasy, and setting aside idols to persuade [men] that he himself is God, raising up himself as the only idol, having in himself the multifarious errors of the other idols.
This he does, in order that they who do [now] worship the devil by means of many abominations, may serve himself by this one idol, of whom the apostle thus speaks in the second Epistle to the Thessalonians: “Unless there shall come a failing away first, and the man of sin shall be revealed, the son of perdition, who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself as if he were God.” The apostle therefore clearly points out his apostasy, and that he is lifted up above all that is called God, or that is worshipped — that is, above every idol — for these are indeed so called by men, but are not [really] gods; and that he will endeavour in a tyrannical manner to set himself forth as God.
2. Moreover, he (the apostle) has also pointed out this which I have shown in many ways, that the temple in Jerusalem was made by the direction of the true God. For the apostle himself, speaking in his own person, distinctly called it the temple of God.
Now I have shown in the third book, that no one is termed God by the apostles when speaking for themselves, except Him who truly is God, the Father of our Lord, by whose directions the temple which is at Jerusalem was constructed for those purposes which I have already mentioned; in which [temple] the enemy shall sit, endeavouring to show himself as Christ, as the Lord also declares: “But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, which has been spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (let him that readeth understand), then let those who are in Judea flee into the mountains; and he who is upon the house-top, let him not come down to take anything out of his house: for there shall then be great hardship, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, nor ever shall be.” (Mat_24:15, Mat_24:21)
3. Daniel too, looking forward to the end of the last kingdom, i.e., the ten last kings, amongst whom the kingdom of those men shall be partitioned, and upon whom the son of perdition shall come, declares that ten horns shall spring from the beast, and that another little horn shall arise in the midst of them, and that three of the former shall be rooted up before his face. He says: “And, behold, eyes were in this horn as the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking great things, and his look was more stout than his fellows.
I was looking, and this horn made war against the saints, and prevailed against them, until the Ancient of days came and gave judgment to the saints of the most high God, and the time came, and the saints obtained the kingdom.” (Dan_7:8, etc.)
Then, further on, in the interpretation of the vision, there was said to him: “The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall excel all other kingdoms, and devour the whole earth, and tread it down, and cut it in pieces. And its ten horns are ten kings which shall arise; and after them shall arise another, who shall surpass in evil deeds all that were before him, and shall overthrow three kings; and he shall speak words against the most high God, and wear out the saints of the most high God, and shall purpose to change times and laws; and [everything] shall be given into his hand until a time of times and a half time,” (Dan_7:23, etc.) that is, for three years and six months, during which time, when he comes, he shall reign over the earth.
Of whom also the Apostle Paul again, speaking in the second [Epistle] to the Thessalonians, and at the same time proclaiming the cause of his advent, thus says: “And then shall the wicked one be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus shall slay with the spirit of His mouth, and destroy by the presence of His coming; whose coming [i.e., the wicked one’s] is after the working of Satan, in all power, and signs, and portents of lies, and with all deceivableness of wickedness for those who perish; because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And therefore God will send them the working of error, that they may believe a lie; that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but gave consent to iniquity,” (2Th_2:8)
Note; I have posted that portion of the bible numerous times 2 Thess. Ch 2 verse 1-6
Chap. XXVI. — John and Daniel Have Predicted the Dissolution and Desolation of the Roman Empire, Which Shall Precede the End of the World and the Eternal Kingdom of Christ. The Gnostics Are Refuted, Those Tools of Satan, Who Invent Another Father Different from the Creator.
1. In a still clearer light has John, in the Apocalypse, indicated to the Lord’s disciples what shall happen in the last times, and concerning the ten kings who shall then arise, among whom the empire which now rules [the earth] shall be partitioned. He teaches us what the ten horns shall be which were seen by Daniel, telling us that thus it had been said to him: “And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, who have received no kingdom as yet, but shall receive power as if kings one hour with the beast.
These have one mind, and give their strength and power to the beast. These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them, because He is the Lord of lords and the King of kings.” (Rev_17:12, etc.) It is manifest, therefore, that of these [potentates], he who is to come shall slay three, and subject the remainder to his power, and that he shall be himself the eighth among them. And they shall lay Babylon waste, and burn her with fire, and shall give their kingdom to the beast, and put the Church to flight.
This last portion clearly shows what this first bible commentary and disciple of John made clear concerning no rapture.
These writings are like commentaries, they are not equal with the bible, understand, these are writings of the first generation and second generation in early Church history that had more verbal teaching than texts. It is bible works, based on the bible and not pagan or a false book like Enoch. We use commentaries today? This writer was the first one who did apologetic's, and commentaries in early Church history, so we get a snap shot of what early orthodox Christians were taught and believed and it lines up with the word. No rapture.( Pre-Tribulation Rapture)
The antichrist, the temple all was known since the bible was written, most just refuse to heed the word and listen to doctrines of men.
Chap. XXVII. — The Future Judgment by Christ. Communion with and Separation from the Divine Being. The Eternal Punishment of Unbelievers.
1. If the Father, then, does not exercise judgment, [it follows] that judgment does not belong to Him, or that He consents to all those actions which take place; and if He does not judge, all persons will be equal, and accounted in the same condition. The advent of Christ will therefore be without an object, yea, absurd, inasmuch as [in that case] He exercises no judicial power.
For “He came to divide a man against his father, and the daughter against the mother, and the daughter-in-law against the mother-in-law;” (Mat_10:25) and when two are in one bed, to take the one, and to leave the other; and of two women grinding at the mill, to take one and leave the other: (Luk_17:34) [also] at the time of the end, to order the reapers to collect first the tares together, and bind them in bundles, and burn them with unquenchable fire, but to gather up the wheat into the barn; (Mat_13:30) and to call the lambs into the kingdom prepared for them, but to send the goats into everlasting fire, which has been prepared by His Father for the devil and his angels.
(Mat_25:33, etc.) And why is this? Has the Word come for the ruin and for the resurrection of many? For the ruin, certainly, of those who do not believe Him, to whom also He has threatened a greater damnation in the judgment-day than that of Sodom and Gomorrah; (Luk_10:12) but for the resurrection of believers, and those who do the will of His Father in heaven. If then the advent of the Son comes indeed alike to all, but is for the purpose of judging, and separating the believing from the unbelieving, since, as those who believe do His will agreeably to their own choice,
This clearly teaches what rapture teachers twist concerning one being taken and one left behind, this is orthodox, Christian Bible Prophecy.
UPDATE-Book No Longer Posted, working on a new one sorry,
I cannot stress enough how all true bible believers must arm themselves in these last days with these bible truths, if not, you will be caught unaware and maybe even fall from the faith.
I am so burdened over this, I must sound the holy alarm, as a Watchmen ( Pastor, Evangelist, Teachers Are to be watchmen) against false doctrine, that is the call of a true watchmen. There are a couple who call themselves watchmen that are Godly, sincere men, but all have been seduced by Steve Quayle, he is the ultimate one.
Ever listened to Steve Quayle, or his site,( I will give the link only for reference) start with his YT videos esp, more than a month old and you will hear, let your spirit discern this false man, and false teacher of pagan doctrine.
I rarely say names, but posted, as a minister I am accountable, not to divide , or gossip, but expose false doctrines and people by name who are doing it, I also wrote on the bible mandate to do this and showed many verses on why it is Ok to do so. As Paul warned Timothy of Alexander the copper smith, and many others by name, not to mention when he refuted face to face The Apostle Peter.
And so this post is my virtual face to face and rebuke to Steve Quayle, and others.
I could give a whole list of false prophets , false teachers, but a hit list is not what is intended, nor do I wish to over judge a man, but you know a tree by its fruit and its doctrine, if false, it must be exposed and brought to light. It’s a bible N.T Practice.
I try and drop a name here and there only when I am trying to teach on false doctrine and current false doctrines, teachers that are popular and leading the masses astray, not to do so would be in disobedience to Ezekiel CH 33, I added in the last post about this current online trend of false teachers. I mentioned Joel Olsteen ( Post Modern), Peter C.Wagner, Rick Joiner, and other Manifest sons of God, third wave revival, prosperity teachers, and the Toronto Airport movements and such.
If you have not done so , read the post on the Book of Enoch, it is not long and I would to God, the well meaning watchmen and teachers of prophecy who swear by this book would read that post and see why I have such a burden over this issue.
It is not time for confusion, but clear thought, sound doctrine, we need this in these last days, all of us, so we will not be fooled and tricked by the Antichrist , who will, if at all possible, lead astray the very elect, dear elect one, do not be one of them please read, the posts, read and re- read this one and use discernment, see if this is sound or not, use your mind and your sword and let us reason together, and may all come to know these critical truths, learn how to weed out all the false teachings, doctrines, prophets, that are all over the internet.

Heb 5:12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.
Heb 5:13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.
Heb 5:14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
Heb 5:12 By now you should have been teachers, but once again you need to be taught the simplest things about what God has said. You need milk instead of solid food.
Heb 5:13 People who live on milk are like babies who don't really know what is right.
Heb 5:14 Solid food is for mature people who have been trained to know right from wrong.
For when for the time - They had heard the Gospel for many years, and had professed to be Christians for a long time; on these accounts they might reasonably have been expected to be well instructed in Divine things, so as to be able to instruct others.
Which be the first principles - Τινα τα στοιχεια· Certain first principles or elements.
The word τινα is not the nominative plural, as our translators have supposed, but the accusative case, governed by διδασκειν· and therefore the literal translation of the passage is this: Ye have need that one teach you a second time (παλιν) certain elements of the doctrines of Christ, or oracles of God; i.e. the notices which the prophets gave concerning the priesthood of Jesus Christ, such as are found in Psa_110:1-7 :, and in Isa_53:1-12 : By the oracles of God the writings of the Old Testament, are undoubtedly meant.
And are become such - The words seem to intimate that they had once been better instructed, and had now forgotten that teaching; and this was occasioned by their being dull of hearing; either they had not continued to hear, or they had heard so carelessly that they were not profited by what they heard.
They had probably totally omitted the preaching of the Gospel, and consequently forgotten all they had learned. Indeed, it was to reclaim those Hebrews from backsliding, and preserve them from total apostasy, that this epistle was written.
Such as have need of milk - Milk is a metaphor by which many authors, both sacred and profane, express the first principles of religion and science; and they apply sucking to learning; and every student in his novitiate, or commencement of his studies, was likened to an infant that derives all its nourishment from the breast of its mother, not being able to digest any other kind of food.
On the contrary, those who had well learned all the first principles of religion and science, and knew how to apply them, were considered as adults who were capable of receiving στερεα τροφη, solid food; i.e. the more difficult and sublime doctrines.
“The soul is like to a young infant, which, if permitted, will grow up to manhood in the love of sucking; but if thou take it from the breast it will feel itself weaned.”
strong meat — “solid food.”
them ... of full age — literally, “perfect”: akin to “perfection” (Heb_6:1).
by reason of use — Greek, “habit.”
senses — organs of sense.
exercised — similarly connected with “righteousness” in Heb_12:11.
to discern both good and evil — as a child no longer an infant (Isa_7:16): so able to distinguish between sound and unsound doctrine. The mere child puts into its mouth things hurtful and things nutritious, without discrimination: but not so the adult. Paul again alludes to their tendency not to discriminate, but to be carried about by strange doctrines, in Heb_13:9.
Dear reader this message is not for the new Christian, or very new convert, as they are to be feeding on milk, this word is to the ones that have been a Christian for a while. These such ones are to now be eating the meat of the word and not just milk, not un-teachable, without discernment, eating whatever doctrine and teaching that comes down the road and not even being able to tell what is right or wrong anymore.
This is a word of rebuke and correction, as it is written, why are so many Christians still on milk? They have become dull of hearing and thus unable to apply biblical truths. This is the day when all should be eating the meat of the word, in discernment, it is a high alert, a time that you must know what the word says and have the capacity to toss out what is not biblical, and cling to the meat of what you read and hear.
In the music business as a teacher, I used to call people newbie’s, that’s fine, they are teachable and apply themselves and do the work, the others were called spoon bees, they want to be hand feed everything, ask a lot of questions and never do any study, the spoon bees never last the studies. It is the same with Christians, so many want a minister, a blog, a video to teach them, they do not read the word for themselves, and after a message, they digest a lot of poison and do not even know how far they have fallen from bible truth.
An Experience has overtaken maturity, the ability to stand when the lord is silent, when you must wait, and stand on the word. Many want goose bumps and the feel good gospel, so few once mature saints want truth anymore.
This is the day when all must know, the old milk man is out of business, and he does not do home delivery anymore, the person has to get up and go to the store to get the milk, this is the same with the word, you want a person to do all the work, study, praying for you and deliver a word to you, this day is coming to a end and fast. What will you do when all you have is your bible and nothing else? think on this.
The lord says, ‘I am the one who will teach you, feed you, bless you, direct you, all you have to do is be teachable, humble and draw near to the me and I will draw near to you’.
What will you do when there is no internet, no T.V. and later no freedom. Bibles will be outlawed, burned and so will many Christians.
Take time to read and memorize as much meat as you can now, read as never before, even if you do not remember it now, perhaps your memory is not what it used to be, or your one that say, ‘I can not quote the bible like others’, listen, the Holy Spirit in these last days will bring all the meat to your memory as promised, it will come back to you, it will come out of nowhere. The brain is still the greatest computer on the world, and you may not know it now, but when the time comes you will have many verses come to you and you will be amazed, you will be in wonder as the Spirit brings these verses you did not even remember reading, so urgent is the time to read and absorb as much of the word as you can now.
There is a famine of the word, and a soon famine of bread, man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the father. This is important, Jesus also said,’my food is to do the will of the Father that sent me’, ministry, prayer, and touching the untouchable, doing the impossible
No, The milk man days are over, so now in these last days it is time to become a word smith and know how to use your sword, it will give hope, truth, encouragement, peace, faith, confidence, and it is a living thing, the word is and will always be alive and active.
2Ti 4:1 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;
2Ti 4:2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
2 Timothy 4:2
Preach the word - Proclaim the doctrine, the doctrine of Christ crucified, for the sins of the whole world; the doctrine, that the Gentiles are invited to be fellow heirs with the Jews, and that for Jews and Gentiles there is no salvation but by faith in Christ.
Be instant in season, out of season - Be urgent whether the times be prosperous or adverse, whenever there is an opportunity; and when there is none, strive to make one. The Judge is at the door, and to every man eternity is at hand! Wherever thou meetest a sinner, speak to him the word of reconciliation. Do not be contented with stated times and accustomed places merely; all time and place belong to God, and are proper for his work. Wherever it can be done, there it should be done. Satan will omit neither time nor place where he can destroy. Omit thou none where thou mayest be the instrument of salvation to any.
Reprove - Confute, the false teacher.
Rebuke - Reprove cuttingly and severely those who will not abandon their sins.
Exhort - Comfort the feeble-minded, the diffident and the tempted.
With all long-suffering - In reference to each and all of these cases.
And doctrine - The different modes of teaching suited to each.
This is part of the Apostle Paul's Last recorded words and thus they are important.
We are given the same charge and it is a charge before the lord Jesus and Jehovah, what a charge indeed, before the very lord, that will come to judge. I would be, and am in fear and trembling every time I read verse 1. This charge is not before a counsel of elders, or another Minister, but the lord himself, the lord hears this charge and is witness to it, powerful stuff, the next verse tells us a bit about this heavenly charge ( command).
Clarke wrote it like it is, it is what we are to do and how. It is very close to Ezekiel Ch 33, The real call of a watchmen, (Pastor, Evangelist, Teacher, are all watchmen) a Prophet and the Christian. A watchmen is not just to watch against and tell the latest secrets the government is doing, so many watchmen are now basically Christian truthers, this is not what a real watchmen does, this is a new thing, a new wave of doctrine.
The watchman is to warn of sin, the enemy being sin and watch against wolfs in sheep’s clothing, not every Intel they get from unknown sources about bazaar events, many watchmen do not understand this.
I had to delete the current link I had to a watchmen site, as I looked closer I found the same theme, a lot of twisted truths and a lot of Truther news and conspiracies.
This is not a watchmen, a Christian Alex Jones, we do not need these , we need watchmen, that watch against false doctrine, preach truth, expose sin, expose false teaching and on his watch post against wolves that come in and try to sow discord, that is what the bible says a watchmen is, one who declares Judgment, and one who preaches and teaches sound doctrine, and stays with the word, more than current events.
We should all be aware of what’s going on as we are watching for the start of the tribulation and waiting on the lord our holy watchmen to tell us what to do and whisper his heart and secrets to us.
Most of these watchmen have one thing in common I noticed, they all say we are in the tribulation already, this is why I canned the link, yet another watchmen that does not know the proper biblical time frame.
They twist the word, we are not in the tribulation yet fact, the word clearly teaches us what events lead up to and in the tribulation, seal one is the coming of the Antichrist, so how can anyone say we are in the tribulation already, no seven year peace treaty, no temple, etc. It is not correct, or biblical, the bible is very clear and specific on this.
Secondly most use extra biblical sources for info like the book of Enoch, ancient belief's and prophecies from pagans to make their case, this is not a bible watchmen, but if anyone uses the book of Enoch and other pagan documents to back up their beliefs and teachings, run, man, run.
2Ti 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
2Ti 4:4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
2Ti 4:5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.
The next part of this heavenly command , notice we are not to get into fables, the book of Enoch, Gematra, pagan historic documents , these are fables, like the Hopi Indian prophecies, I have heard many so called watchmen refer to them to support what they are saying, Pagan prophecy? You see what I am saying, doctrines, prophecies of demons and pagan at that, use the word. Nothing else, anything else is suspect and for vain and evil purposes.
A great cross reference is Ezek Ch 33, I will post the whole chapter for your convenience.
Eze 33:1 Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
Eze 33:2 Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman:
Eze 33:3 If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people;
Eze 33:4 Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head.
Eze 33:5 He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul.
Eze 33:6 But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand.
Eze 33:7 So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me.
Eze 33:8 When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.
Eze 33:9 Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from it; if he do not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.
Eze 33:10 Therefore, O thou son of man, speak unto the house of Israel; Thus ye speak, saying, If our transgressions and our sins be upon us, and we pine away in them, how should we then live?
Eze 33:11 Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?
Eze 33:12 Therefore, thou son of man, say unto the children of thy people, The righteousness of the righteous shall not deliver him in the day of his transgression: as for the wickedness of the wicked, he shall not fall thereby in the day that he turneth from his wickedness; neither shall the righteous be able to live for his righteousness in the day that he sinneth.
Eze 33:13 When I shall say to the righteous, that he shall surely live; if he trust to his own righteousness, and commit iniquity, all his righteousnesses shall not be remembered; but for his iniquity that he hath committed, he shall die for it.
Eze 33:14 Again, when I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; if he turn from his sin, and do that which is lawful and right;
Eze 33:15 If the wicked restore the pledge, give again that he had robbed, walk in the statutes of life, without committing iniquity; he shall surely live, he shall not die.
Eze 33:16 None of his sins that he hath committed shall be mentioned unto him: he hath done that which is lawful and right; he shall surely live.
Eze 33:17 Yet the children of thy people say, The way of the Lord is not equal: but as for them, their way is not equal.
Eze 33:18 When the righteous turneth from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, he shall even die thereby.
Eze 33:19 But if the wicked turn from his wickedness, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall live thereby.
Eze 33:20 Yet ye say, The way of the Lord is not equal. O ye house of Israel, I will judge you every one after his ways.
Eze 33:21 And it came to pass in the twelfth year of our captivity, in the tenth month, in the fifth day of the month, that one that had escaped out of Jerusalem came unto me, saying, The city is smitten.
Eze 33:22 Now the hand of the LORD was upon me in the evening, afore he that was escaped came; and had opened my mouth, until he came to me in the morning; and my mouth was opened, and I was no more dumb.
Eze 33:23 Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
Eze 33:24 Son of man, they that inhabit those wastes of the land of Israel speak, saying, Abraham was one, and he inherited the land: but we are many; the land is given us for inheritance.
Eze 33:25 Wherefore say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Ye eat with the blood, and lift up your eyes toward your idols, and shed blood: and shall ye possess the land?
Eze 33:26 Ye stand upon your sword, ye work abomination, and ye defile every one his neighbour's wife: and shall ye possess the land?
Eze 33:27 Say thou thus unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; As I live, surely they that are in the wastes shall fall by the sword, and him that is in the open field will I give to the beasts to be devoured, and they that be in the forts and in the caves shall die of the pestilence.
Eze 33:28 For I will lay the land most desolate, and the pomp of her strength shall cease; and the mountains of Israel shall be desolate, that none shall pass through.
Eze 33:29 Then shall they know that I am the LORD, when I have laid the land most desolate because of all their abominations which they have committed.
Eze 33:30 Also, thou son of man, the children of thy people still are talking against thee by the walls and in the doors of the houses, and speak one to another, every one to his brother, saying, Come, I pray you, and hear what is the word that cometh forth from the LORD.
Eze 33:31 And they come unto thee as the people cometh, and they sit before thee as my people, and they hear thy words, but they will not do them: for with their mouth they shew much love, but their heart goeth after their covetousness.
Eze 33:32 And, lo, thou art unto them as a very lovely song of one that hath a pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument: for they hear thy words, but they do them not.
Eze 33:33 And when this cometh to pass, (lo, it will come,) then shall they know that a prophet hath been among them.
Clarke on the chapter and what it means;
The prophet, after having addressed several other nations, returns now to his own; previously to which he is told, as on a former occasion, the duty of a watchman, the salvation or ruin of whose soul depends on the manner in which he discharges it. An awful passage indeed; full of important instruction both to such as speak, and to such as hear, the word of God, Eze_33:1-9. The prophet is then directed what answer to make to the cavils of infidelity and impiety; and to vindicate the equity of the Divine government by declaring the general terms of acceptance with God to be (as told before, chap. 18) without respect of persons; so that the ruin of the finally impenitent must be entirely owing to themselves,
So you see a watchmen, is to be as Paul said in the text, doing the work of an evangelist and warning of Judgment.
Most in this new internet field have it all wrong, it must line up with the bible. I have been a watchmen, preaching sound doctrine, judgment and from the word, or a prophecy, I am but a humble example.
I am concerned at all this I read on the net, and of late as I said I am fasting from YT and websites, as I want to hear from the lord, and get His word and not a mans word or thoughts. I know this will upset a few folks and some may disagree, but a watchmen is clearly a bible call and in the N.T. all Pastors are to be watchmen, doing the work of an evangelist, refute the word, its all bible you have read so far and not opinion.
I guess in some ways some of my messages sound like what I am refuting, in the vain of a Christian truther-Watchmen. I am not, nor ever have been a part of the truther movement. A sound mind that can think is all that is needed to see the USA and the West are dead and the Politicians the destruction of the Constitution it is not a secret.
A thinking person can clearly see these things, I do not need, or want to hear Truthers tell me a lot of fear mongering they get from Non Christian secret Intel sources, I do not need it and the remnant do not need it, our connection to any Intel we need comes from our God Father, (hay I am half Italian LOL). Our Father God, amen
The lord has said to me it is time to move in your gift again as a evangelist that prophesies, That is what I have been doing and the devil is mad as hell LOL. He would rather have me and you side tracked by information overload, reading every blog, watching YT videos, man I say to all take a break from all this information overload, and get into your prayer closet and the word, that is all you need.
Listen to sound preaching, like those found on sermon index, and time square church, they stream every Sunday the services live, if you do not have a church its the next best thing. Keep it sound.
Move in your Gifts, they are needed now, move in the spirit, do the work of an evangelist, and pray as never before. Whole hearted, not half hearted.
I read a post a little while ago and canned that on my links due to the man, said the lord will hear any prayer even a half hearted one, ..delete……, where does it say that anywhere in the bible, one of the 10 commandments, in fact the first one is love the lord thy God with all your heart, mind and soul, I have never read in all of the bible where the lord said he hears a half hearted prayer, another non biblical post modern doctrine, we are to pray and worship with all of our heart, mind and soul. Never half hearted.
I will continue to teach sound orthodox doctrine and Jesus as Lord of Lords ,the only way to heaven till I die, how about you? Are you IN?

2Ki 10:19 Now therefore call unto me all the prophets of Baal, all his servants, and all his priests; let none be wanting: for I have a great sacrifice to do to Baal; whosoever shall be wanting, he shall not live. But Jehu did it in subtilty, to the intent that he might destroy the worshippers of Baal.
2Ki 10:20 And Jehu said, Proclaim a solemn assembly for Baal. And they proclaimed it.
2Ki 10:21 And Jehu sent through all Israel: and all the worshippers of Baal came, so that there was not a man left that came not. And they came into the house of Baal; and the house of Baal was full from one end to another.
2Ki 10:22 And he said unto him that was over the vestry, Bring forth vestments for all the worshippers of Baal. And he brought them forth vestments.
2Ki 10:23 And Jehu went, and Jehonadab the son of Rechab, into the house of Baal, and said unto the worshippers of Baal, Search, and look that there be here with you none of the servants of the LORD, but the worshippers of Baal only.
2Ki 10:25 And it came to pass, as soon as he had made an end of offering the burnt offering, that Jehu said to the guard and to the captains, Go in, and slay them; let none come forth. And they smote them with the edge of the sword; and the guard and the captains cast them out, and went to the city of the house of Baal.
In this O.T. passage we read the worshippers of Baal were killed, by the kings decree, in context the story is sad, as the king did not complete the reformation, and did not heed or listen to the lord, his prophets, or worship the lord with his whole heart, he allowed the golden calf in the tribe of Dan to stay, so this is the context, the message I want you to see is in verse 23,
23b. and look that there be here with you none of the servants of the LORD, but the worshippers of Baal only.
The servants of the lord were sought out and taken out before the killing and abolishing of the idol of Baal and it's worshippers. The lord is saying my beef is not with those that are mine, for we are not appointed unto wrath. The lord has His mark on you, the devil has his sights on you, but the lords protection is over you.
Dear remnant one, we have been marked and sealed, as we are the lords property and his holy temple. If we stay the course and do not faint and fall away, we are secure.
When the stuff hits the fan, many true Christians will die, from many things and for the lord; this is not escapism theology, a historical fact. I have been re- reading the Foxes book of Martyrs and wow, it is a hard read and makes you weep. This book clearly shows that there is no verse that can support the fact many of us will lose our life for Christ and in natural disasters and other things, but we are not under the lord’s wrath so it is promotion day as it was for the martyrs of the past.
The lord has been impressing on me, a new kind of escapism theology has been spread all over, those that know the escape of a pre -trib rapture, came out and are told by the word and the spirit of the our lord, so we know, but to many, me included the lord said, you must declare a fact not a new escapism doctrine.
You see, we know we are not going to be ruptured, I preached and ministered , wrote on a rapture doctrine 25 plus years, so I can refute this doctrine now, but the lord said, many who have also been shown this doctrine to be a deception, with out realizing it have taken a small part of the rapture doctrine and applied it to this remnant doctrine that many, most, remnant ones will be kept safe, sort of like a rapture escape, but alive on earth.
Reading Foxes Book Of Martyrs, the lord said , see son, these saints millions , gave their life for me, and many died in the Black plague and other things, yes no one goes, no one is killed before I call them home, many will be spared, but many more will die. Do not have a false hope that many say, all the true believers will be spared and in safe havens ad such, as the many will die and the few will live.
We are not called unto wrath, dying is not wrath, going to hell is. So understand many reading this, remnant or not will die soon, sorry it is what the lord said to say.
I have read many sites that say all or most will be spared, we are spared from wrath, we are spared from many things, but when our number is called we go. This all must understand and is all the more reason we need to make our calling and election sure, as we do not want to come this far, or go through al that is coming just to lose it in the end and lose our soul and end up in hell.
The ones who are alive and remain...this is the message, you can not be touched, the text shows us we are being separated right now from the ones who are non-Christian and Christian in name only, a great separation for preparation is going on now, the lord knows who his people are. He is like this King in a way, he made sure the true servants of the lord were first separated and kept from the judgment and death, the wrath of the lord.
I hope dear reader you can grasp the message, it is serious and it is also one of hope, we are not going to be punished with the wicked we should be reading the book of Psalms everyday and praying. I have found in my own life, when I feast on the psalms and the many promises with spiritual praise and worship, holy honest prayer, there is a divine peace that comes, we all need peace in these days, try it. Turn off the T.V. and read a lot of psalms and pray, that’s it, do it for a weak or so and I honestly can say from trying this a few times, the peace that surpasses all understanding will come on and in you. Try it and see.
Read Ps 91 and others like it often, concentrate and think on the good things and the many promises, think you will be seen through all this, think no plague shall come near your tent, think this way no matter what, the lord will lift up your head as you rejoice in trembling, and this is correct biblical thinking. Do not sit with your head down, or cast down, waiting to die, believe these promises and peace will come, never think on things that put you in fear, only peace, this is for the true Christian, because we are never to think about being killed, we are to live in the light while it is day.
Do you see the sun today? This is the day the lord has made we will rejoice and be glad in it, make the choice to rejoice. Understand arm yourself that many will die, so if and when you become another name in the great hall of fame of the martyred saints you rejoice until than and after, so believe you will be spared. Luke said in Ch 21, concerning the tribulation. ‘Pray that ye be found worthy to escape ALL these things that are coming on the earth’, so pray you may escape , this is a dual message, a dual thought, but in the balance of this, you will have a peace and it will be beyond belief.
Jesus prayed, “Father if it be thy will let this cup pass from me”... and so we can do the same, and add your will be done, but we can pray and believe it, this is faith, no matter what happens the lord will not let you down, you have his word on this.
We must understand this new remnant escapism doctrine, must be kept in balance, as the man of God avoids all extremes. We must arm ourselves with the whole truth and believe for and pray for the best, the lord’s perfect will for you, is always best. Keep it sound, keep it balanced, avoid all extremes and peace will come in your heart.
