“Prophecy – 501”…Blog.
*** (1Corinthians 2:12-13) But we have = ‘not’ received = the spirit of the world, = but = the Spirit from God, = so that we = ‘might know’ = the things = that are freely = given to us = by God.
(1Cor 2:13) These things = we also speak, = ‘not’ in words = which man's wisdom teaches, = ‘but’ = which the Holy Spirit = ‘teaches’, = ‘comparing’ = spiritual things = with spiritual.
*** (Deuteronomy 29:29) The ‘secret’ things = belong to Jehovah our God, = but the revealed things = belong to us = and = to our sons forever, = so that we may ‘do’ = all the words = of this Law.
With ‘all’, the varied responses… perhaps we should continue this discussion about Bible Prophecy, the ‘forth-telling’, of the Truth of God’s Word and… ‘not’ the “fore-telling” of things that will happen. Our personal experience… “Does not”… validate the ‘Truth of God’s Word’… nor can it! The Bible is its own commentary… comparing spiritual Truth, with spiritual Truth. Can you imagine God, being figured out by puny mankind? He would ‘not’ then be… “God Almighty”… Who created all things, visible and invisible, macro and micro, and by Whom… all things continue. Some make God, much like, themselves as men, some even make Him, ‘Santa Clause’.
*** (Romans 1:22 - 23) Professing = to be wise, = they became fools
(Rom 1:23) and = changed the Glory = of the incorruptible God = into a likeness of an image = of corruptible ‘man’, = and of birds, = and four-footed animals, = and creeping things.
*** (Isaiah 55:8-9) 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.
When someone says… ‘God spoke to me’, outside of His Word, they are in essence saying, that they ‘know’ as much as God, the God of the Bible. He has already said in ‘numerous’ scriptures, that His word is eternal… and that ‘no one’ can understand it… ‘Unless’… revealed by His Holy Spirit. Satan comes as an Angel of Light… “2Corinthians 11:13-14-15”… to lie and to deceive. To what would you compare… “Your Revelation”… ‘To discern’, Satan’s Lie? Lucifer, before his rebellion against God, guarded the throne of God. Now it is guarded by four Seraphs Angels. Please see… “Ezekiel 28” & “Isaiah 6 & 14” & “Revelation 12:4”. Satan too, is the father of all lies… “John 8:44”.
*** (2Peter 1:20-21) knowing this ‘first’, = that no prophecy of the Scripture = came into being = of its ‘own’ = “private” = interpretation.
(2Pet 1:21) For prophecy = was ‘not’ borne = at any time = by the will of man, = but holy men of God = spoke being borne along = by the Holy Spirit.
*** (1John 4:1) Beloved, = ‘do not’ = believe = ‘every’ spirit, = but ‘try’ the spirits = to see if = they are of God, = ‘because’ = ‘many’ = false prophets = have gone out = into the world.
Again to what… do you compare “Your Prophecy” to… ‘if not’… to the Word of God? How would one know…? “If” or “If Not”… it was from God? Even with, the new American money and all its safeguards, there are still ‘counterfeiters’. They simply wash the money and remove the ink and reprint it, even with the water marks. But they ‘cannot’ remove the security chip strip… imbedded in the paper. So too, when some say God spoke, to them something, how would one validate what was said, except by the “Holy Word of God?” Often time, I hear, God revealed to me, ‘this or that. But the Word says something, entirely different! Experience does Not, Validate 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.
*** (Acts 17:11) And these were = more noble than those of Thessalonica, = in that they ‘received= the Word = with ‘all’ readiness of mind = and = ‘searched’ the Scriptures daily = to see = ‘If’ = those things were so.
*** (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.
*** (1Samuel 3:21) And Jehovah = appeared again = in Shiloh. = For Jehovah = ‘revealed’ = Himself = to Samuel = in Shiloh = ‘By’ = the Word of Jehovah. [… How?]
Did you know… that all Bible Prophecy… “Fore-Telling”… is ‘not’ completed and that some of the ones that are revealed… are only ‘partially’ revealed? Jesus Christ, which means, “Messiah”, read one, as it was only partially completed. Many others are too, are only partially revealed. What do you know about the “70-weeks” of Daniel? Do you know that we are holding, in the “69th Week?” Please allow me to share ‘one’… that Christ, spoke about…?
*** (Isaiah 61:1-2) The Spirit = of the “Lord Jehovah” = is on Me [Jesus]; = because Jehovah has anointed Me = to preach the ‘Gospel’ to the poor; = He has sent Me to bind up the broken-hearted, = to proclaim liberty to the captives, = and the opening of the prison to those who are bound;
(Isaiah 61:2) to preach = the acceptable year of Jehovah = and = the day of vengeance of our God; = to comfort all who mourn;
*** (Luke 4:18-19) "The Spirit of the Lord = is on Me [Jesus]; = because of this = He has anointed Me = to proclaim the ‘Gospel’ to the poor. = He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, = to proclaim deliverance to the captives, = and new sight to the blind, = to set at liberty those having been crushed,
(Luke 4:19) to proclaim = the acceptable = year of the Lord."
Christ Jesus… ‘Only Partially’… fulfilled “Isaiah 61:1-2” What did He ‘not’ fulfill…? Did you catch it in the Text…? “The Day of Vengeance of our God = and = Comfort to ‘all’ who morn.” When will these facts be fulfilled…? In the future, as Christ Jesus came the ‘first time’… to save mankind from the ‘Power & Penalty’ of… Sin/Sins! The day of ‘Vengeance’ is yet to fulfilled in…. “Revelation 20:1o-to 15”… and comfort to ‘All’ that morn… “Revelation 6:9-10-11” & “Revelation 21 & Revelation 22”. Then and only then… the New Heaven and the New Earth are revealed.
*** (Joel 2:28-to-32) And it shall be afterward, = I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh. = And your sons and your daughters = shall prophesy; = your old men shall dream dreams; = your young men shall see visions.
(Joe 2:29) And also = I will pour out My Spirit = on the slaves and on the slave women = in those days.
(Joe 2:30) And I will = show wonders = ‘in’ the heavens, = and = in the earth, = blood and fire = and = pillars of smoke.
(Joe 2:31) The sun = ‘shall be’ = turned into darkness, = and the moon into blood, = before the coming = of the great and awesome = day of Jehovah.
(Joe 2:32) And it shall be, = whoever shall = ‘call’ = on the name of Jehovah = shall be saved; = for salvation shall be in Mount Zion = and in Jerusalem, = as Jehovah has said, = and = in the remnant = ‘whom’ = Jehovah shall call.
*** (Acts 2:16-to-21) But this = ‘is that’ = which was spoken = by the prophet = Joel:
(Act 2:17) "And it shall be = in the last days, = says God, = I will pour out of My Spirit upon all flesh. = And your sons and your daughters = shall prophesy, = and your young men = shall see visions, = and your old men = shall dream dreams.
(Act 2:18) And in those days = I will pour out My Spirit = upon My slaves and My slave women, = and they shall prophesy.
(Act 2:19) And I will give = wonders in the heaven above, = and miracles on the earth below, = blood = and = fire = and = vapor of smoke.
(Act 2:20) The sun = shall be turned = into ‘darkness’ = and = the moon into ‘blood’, = before that great and glorious = Day of the Lord.
(Act 2:21) And it shall be = that everyone = who shall = ‘call’ = upon the name of the Lord = shall be saved."
In both of these… sections of Scripture, both were ‘Only’… “Partially Fulfilled”. How can we know that…? Simple compare… “Joel 2:30-31-32”… with… “Acts 2:19-20-21”. Has the sun been darkened and the moon turned into blood [color]…? Has the… “Day of the Lord’s Vengeance”… ‘come’… upon the Earth…? Absolutely not. What is missing…? The day of Pentecost came as promised by Christ Jesus in… “John 7:38-39!” The Holy Spirit was given to… “Born Again”… those that are, “Truly His!” Perhaps now it is time to read… “Romans 8:9” & “John 3:3-to-7” & “Proverbs 1:23” & “Ezekiel 39:29”…? Compare, ‘Spiritual’ with ‘Spiritual’… i.e. “1Cor 2:12-13!”
Many are ‘Stuck’… in the Book of Acts and choose ‘not’ to leave. Acts was a… ‘transition’ book… as was Exodus. Israel, went from bondage and slavery, to freedom and provision by Jehovah God. So too, both the “Jew & Gentile”, are offered Salvation today… by the Grace of God. No longer held, to the dietary and offering rituals of the Law, they have their freedom in Christ Jesus. Those ‘miracles’, in Acts, were only “Temporary”. Those miracles in Acts were, also to ‘Validate’ the Apostles ‘Message’… just as Christ used Miracles, to validate His message of the Gospel. See John 10:37-38…!
*** (Acts 5:15) So as to carry out = the sick into the streets = and = place them on cots and mattresses, = so that = at least = ‘the shadow’ = of Peter = passing by might overshadow some of them.
*** (Acts 19:11-12) And = God did = ‘works of power’ = through the hands of Paul,
(Acts 19:12) so that even = ‘handkerchiefs’ or ‘aprons’ = from his skin = being brought onto the sick, = the diseases were released, = and the evil spirits = went out of them.
*** (Act 5:10-11) Then at once = she fell down = at his feet = and expired [died]. = And the younger ones found her dead, = and, carrying her out, = buried her beside her husband [who had Lied also to the Holy Spirit].
(Acts 5:11) And = great fear = came on ‘all’ the church = and = on as ‘many’ = as heard these things.
*** (Acts 12:7) And behold! = An angel of the Lord stood by, = and a light shone in the building. = And striking Peter's side, = he raised him up, saying, = Rise up quickly! = And his chains fell off his hands.
*** (2Timothy 4:20) Erastus stayed at Corinth, = ‘but’ Trophimus = I [Paul] = left ‘sick’ = at Miletus.
Perhaps a look at the Miracles…? Healings by Peters’ shadow, ‘works of power’ by Paul’s clothes for healings, instant death for ‘Lying Believers’, an angel delivering Peter, and yet Paul was taken to prison and then to Rome to be executed. Paul’s Apostolic healing ‘lost’… as he left Trophimus, “Sick at Miletus”. Those sign gifts… “passed on”… as the Scriptures were being completed. If you will take the time, simply read through Acts, and verify these facts for yourselves and the many instances…? What about… “1Corinthians 13:9-10”…?
*** (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. = [Psalms 119:18 & 1Samuel 3:21 & Deuteronomy 29:29]
"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?
