“Prophecy – 201” …Blog.
The second in this series… will continue with some responses from the past ‘two’ blogs. Some said, that God spoke to them, in dreams and through others. But when asked, they ‘Never Validated’, what was told them… by the “Scriptures?” Why was that…? How can that be that someone would take… something ‘other’, than God’s Word, and then ‘Not’ check it out, with the Word of God…? If one really, “Loves Jesus”, why would they be afraid, to check out what was told them, with the Word of God…?
*** (Ephesians 5:9-10) for the fruit of the Spirit = is in all goodness = and righteousness = and = “Truth”,
(Eph 5:10) = “Proving” = what is = ‘acceptable’ = to the Lord.
*** (John 17:17) Sanctify them = through = “Your Truth”. = Your Word = is Truth.
Over 30-years ago… I came to Christ on His terms [John 7:38-39], and was Born Again by His Holy Spirit. My eyes were opened to His Truth, as I poured into His Word, to learn about Him. I too was interested in ‘Prophecy’ and wanted to know about the future. One of the older ladies at Church, gave me a box of Gospel Tracks, that she had been given by her now deceased mother. There were Gospel Tracks, dated back as early as 19oo. I opened on dated 1914.
*** (Romans 15:4) For whatever things = were written before = were written = for our ‘learning’, = so that we = through patience and comfort = of the “Scriptures” = might have hope.
In this box… of Gospel Tracks, was one discussion the ‘Horses’ found in the book of Revelation. In there, the writer spoke that the “End Times”, were upon them. If you study history, you will recall that ‘horses’ were used in the armed forces in WW 1. The writer had been fitting in the… ‘Current News’… into Bible Prophecy and was “Wrong!” WW 1 was not the end of the world. Today many too are trying to make the recent earthquakes, wrongly fit into the Bible Prophecy. How about “9-11”, did you think that the… “End was at hand?”
*** (Matthew 24:23-24-25) Then ‘if’ =any man shall say to you, = Lo, here is Christ! = Or, There! = Do ‘not’ = believe it.
(Matt 24:24) For ‘false’ Christs’ = and = ‘false’ prophets = will arise = and = ‘show’ great signs and wonders; = so much so that, = if it were possible, = they would deceive = even the elect.
(Matt 24:25) Behold, = I [Jesus] = have told = ‘you’ = beforehand.
How can it be… that so very many will be taken in, by such ‘Lies and Signs?’ Could it be so simple as, “They Do NOT Know their Bible, and what it says…?” Absolutely Yes! Of course you know about… “Entropy?” You get older and your bones and muscles ache. Your vehicle upholstery gets worn and the paint fades. Now do you really think that there is more Truth? There is less and will be less, as you can see what Entropy does. More and more, will read & study their Bibles… Less & Less!
*** (2Timothy 3:13) But evil men = and seducers = will go forward = to worse, = deceiving = and = being deceived.
Did you see the Photo for this blog…? I purposely chose this one as an ‘example’ of “Deception!” Did you notice, “Don’t be Left Behind?” May I ask you a simple question. Are there any that will come to Christ Jesus for Salvation, that will be… “Left Behind?” That is an honest question, can I get an honest answer from your, before you read any further? “Yes” =or= “No” =or= “Maybe?”… Your answer indicate, how well you know your Bible and what Christ says? What does the ‘Scripture’, say about this issue?
*** (John 6:37) “All” = that the Father [God] gives Me [Jesus] = shall come to Me, = and the one = who comes to Me = I will = in ‘no way’ = cast out.
*** (John 6:44) No one = can come to Me [Jesus] = unless the Father [God] = Who has sent Me = ‘draw him’, = and = I will raise him up = at the last day.
*** (John 10:16) And = I [Jesus] = have ‘other sheep’ = who are ‘not’ of this fold. = I must also lead those, = and = they shall hear My voice, = and = there shall be one flock, = one Shepherd.
Now according to the Scriptures… will any that God gave to Jesus, be… ‘Left Behind?’ “Absolutely Not!” Some misguided persons even wrote a book and published a movie, “Left Behind!” Another one, some 20 plus years ago was called, “A thief in the Night!” These were no more than, ‘Scare Tactics’… to get someone to make a decision for Christ. That is ‘not’ what the Bible teachers, to ‘win’ someone to Christ. You cannot ‘win’ someone to Christ, as I do not even like that term. As if you had, the ability to ‘win’ some unbeliever, to Christ. …NOT!
Again, people simply… ‘Do Not’… Believe God and what He has put in His Word! Perhaps if I could approach it from… “God’s Perspective?” What do you know about the Names of God? He through His Word, revealed ‘some’ of His character, by what He is called throughout the Word. May I illustrate this fact and also let you know, that this is only a partial list.
1. Elohim… “God” His power and might… Genesis 1:1 & Psalms 19:1.
2. El-Elyon… “Most High God... Gen 14:17-20, Isaiah 14:13-14.
3. El Olam… “The Everlasting God”… Isaiah 40:28-31.
4. El Roi… “The Strong One that sees”… Genesis 16:13.
5. El Shaddi… “God Almighty”… Genesis 17:1 & Psalms 91:3.
6. Adonai… “Lord”, the Lordship of God… Malachi 1:16.
7. Jehovah… “(Yahweh) The Lord, God’s Eternal Nature… Genesis 2”4.
8. Jehovah-Jireh… “The Lord will provide”… Genesis 22:13-14.
9. Jehovah-Maccaddeshem… “The Lord your sanctifier”… Exodus 31:13.
10. Jehovah-Nissi… ‘The Lord our banner”… Exodus 17:15.
11. Jehovah-Rapha… “The Lord our healer”… Exodus 15:26.
12. Jehovah-Rohi… “The Lord my shepherd”… Psalms 23:1.
13. Jehovah-Sabboah… “The Lord of Hosts”… Isaiah 6:1-to-3.
14. Jehovah-Shalom… “The Lord is peace”… Judges 6:24.
15. Jehovah-Shammah… “The Lord Who is present”… Ezekiel 48:35.
16. Jehovay-Tsidkenu… “The Lord our righteousness… Jeremiah 23:6
17. I AM… “The Lord Eternal”… Exodus 3:12-15.
This list is not… a complete but only a partial one to illustrate this “Point”. Did you know… that God, the God of the Bible… has said that His Word… “Is Above”… His Name…? How important is “His Word” the Bible, if He says… it is above His Name…?
*** (Psalms 138:2) I will worship = toward Your holy temple, = and praise Your name = for Your loving-kindness = and = for Your Truth's sake; = for You [God] = have “magnified” = Your Word = ‘above’ = “All” = Your Name.
Now please tell me… How can God then set aside His Word, and show you His Truth, apart from that? He can Not! His Word is the very character of God! Why then would HE… use something besides His Word…? “He would Not!” = “He has Not!” = “He will Not!” Can it get any plainer than that…? Since when do you put your… “Visions, Dreams and Thoughts”… Above the very Words of Jehovah God…? Perhaps, because ‘you’… “Do Not ‘Really’ Know”… the God of The Word of God…?
*** (Isaiah 55:6-to-11) Seek Jehovah [God] = while = He may be found; = call on Him = while He is near.
(Isa 55:7) Let the wicked = forsake his way, = and the unrighteous man = his thoughts; = and let him = return to Jehovah, = and = He will have mercy on him; = and to our God, = for He will abundantly pardon.
(Isa 55:8) For = My thoughts = ‘are not’ = your thoughts, = ‘nor’ = your ways = My ways, = says Jehovah.
(Isa 55:9) For as the heavens = are higher than the earth, = so are = My ways = higher than = your ways, = and = My thoughts = than = your thoughts.
(Isa 55:10) For as the rain comes down, = and the snow from the heavens, = and does not return there, = but waters the earth, = and makes it bring out = and bud, and give seed to the sower = and bread to the eater;
(Isa 55:11) so shall = “My Word” = be, = which goes out of My mouth; = it = ‘shall not’ = return to Me void, = but = it shall accomplish = what = I please, = and = it shall certainly = do = what I sent it = to do.
How can anyone… then ‘Claim’, that God spoke to them, outside of His Word? Are any of your thoughts or ways, higher than Gods’? … “NOT!” = “Dreams, Visions and Prophecies”… are outside of the Realm of the Completed Word of God, the Bible. = “IF”… His Word is not Enough… “What Then Is”...? Absolutely Nothing! = What is the Name written on His Vesture…? Please read it aloud in the following Bible Verses…?
*** (Revelation 19:11-12-13) And I saw Heaven opened. = And behold, a white horse! = And He sitting on him = was called Faithful and True. = And in righteousness = He judges = and = makes war.
(Rev 19:12) And His eyes = were like a flame of fire, = and = on His head many crowns. = And = He had a name written, = one that no one knew = except Himself.
(Rev 19:13) And He had been clothed = in a garment dipped in blood, = and = His “Name” = is called = = “The Word of God”.
*** (Isaiah 8:20) To the Law = and to the testimony! = If they do not speak = according to this Word, = it is because = no light = is in them.
*** (1Samuel 3:21) And Jehovah appeared again in Shiloh. = For Jehovah = revealed Himself = to Samuel = in Shiloh = “BY” = the Word of Jehovah.
*** (Luke 16:31) And he said to him, = If = they do not hear = Moses and the Prophets, = they will = ‘not’ be persuaded, = even though = one = rose from the dead.
"NO”… Real Christian... ‘Fears’, = “The Truth” = of the Word of God... “Unless”… ‘They Are’… Out of … “Obedience & Fellowship” …with ‘GOD’… and with… “His Word”...!"
(Micah 2:7) House of Jacob, it is said, The Spirit of Jehovah is limited, if these are His doings. = Do not = My words = do good to him = who walks uprightly?
