Rethinking Christmas 2015

“Christ is the Reason for the Season.” If so you would think that more people would be drawn much closer to Christ during Christmas time. Is that the case? Or is the reverse true?   Many who say so with great emphasis continue to celebrate Christmas much in the same manner and spirit everybody else to whom Santa Claus, not Christ, is the giver of their gifts. Or as those who couldn’t care less about Christ’s birth only that “Christmas is the happiest holiday of the year,” a time for feasting, partying, and family reunions.

There are those of course, in whose hearts and minds Christ is enshrined throughout the year and come Christmas time they do everything they can, by word and deed to help refocus those around them— Read more

“ISIS, CIA AND THE VATICAN CONNECTION”

All who will stand in the last days need to pay close attention to currents events, judiciously selecting those only that are relevant to the plan of redemption and the true nature of the great controversy, both central parts of the everlasting gospel given in the three angels’ messages of Revelation 14.

Our omnipotent God chose prophecy as the last vehicle to unveil to “every nation, kindred, tongue (language), and people” (Rev. 14: 6-12) the fullest and final revelation of His perfect love, power, grace, long-suffering, mercy, justice, and supreme authority alone over all creation in heaven and earth and throughout the entire unfallen universe.

We address important, late-breaking developments showing how the Third angel’s message is “swelling into the loud cry of Revelation 18,” also referred to as the “fourth angel,” and “the events connected with the close of probation.”

See http://news.yahoo.com/pope-francis-opens-st-peters-holy-door-launch-102813909.html. Fast-tracking pope Francis (he speeded up the canonization process of John Paul II and John XIII, April 27, 2015, breaching the standard 5-year waiting period and waiving the Vatican’s two-miracle requirement. See Bloomberg.com/new/articles),  launched Tuesday, December 8, the “extraordinary Catholic Jubilee Year ofmercy by opening a “holy Door” in the walls of St. Peter’s, saying, “This is the door of the Lord. Open to me thegates of justice.” Read more

 THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FUTURISM AND THE THIRD ANGEL’S MESSAGE

See Romans 2: 25-29 first. Here Apostle Paul settles once and for all the issue as to who the spiritual Jew is. As the Passover, first observed on the last night of their Egyptian bondage, the first of their three annual festivals, began with the birth of the Hebrew nation, New Testament Christianity, which Christ introduced, replacing Old Testament Judaism, grew rapidly from the Day of Pentecost. The Jewish apostasy made the work of the first apostles especially difficult. The first bitter persecutors of Christ and His followers were the Jewish people led by their spiritual leaders.   Read more

(The Threefold Union in the Battle of Armageddon (Continued)

It’s shopping mania season, again. And nobody is complaining, “Oh no, not again!” In fact, with the introduction of e-commerce the demand is getting greater and the activities more frenetic. Nothing seems to satisfy this insatiable appetite—“the lust of the eye and lust of the flesh for the things of this world” (1 John 2: 15-17), one of the undeniable signs of the times. The giant retailers are amping the buying melee, vying for the multi-billion business. They’ve given it new names: Gray Thursday, now [sadly] AKA “Thanksgiving;” Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Sofa Sunday, and Cyber Monday. Emarketer predicts “A Happy Holiday Season Expected for Retailers.” It forecasts that “U.S. retail sales in the months of November and December 2015 will increase 5.7% year over year, reaching $ 885.70 billion.” www.emarketer.com/Articles/Happy-Holiday-Season-Expected-Retailers/1012898.

In sharp contrast, few give serious thought to the Bible forecast of the rapidly-approaching final test of every individual’s professed faith in God to be waged by the tripartite union of the prophetic “dragon, beast, and his image” before earth’s probation closes permanently.         Read more

 French poet Charles Baudelaire once said that “the greatest trick the devil pulled was fooling the world into believing that he doesn’t exist.”  Ellen G. White revealed back in 1884 that this deception is indeed one of the most successful agencies and heresies of the great deceiver: “Another subtle and mischievous error is the fast-spreading belief that Satan has no existence as personal being; that the name is used in Scripture merely to represent men’s evil thoughts and desires.” (Spirit of Prophecy, Vol. 4, p. 348).

Again: “The position that it is of no consequence what men believe is one of Satan’s most successful deceptions.  He knows that the truth, received in the love of it, sanctifies the soul of the receiver [John 17:17]; therefore he is constantly seeking to substitute false theories, fables, another gospel [1 Tim. 1: 4; 4: 7; 2 Tim. 4: 4; Titus 1: 14; 2 Pet. 1: 16; 2 Cor. 11: 4]. . . .The discord and division which exist among the churches of Christendom are in a great measure due to the prevailing custom of wresting [twisting] the Scriptures to support a favorite theory. Instead of carefully studying God’s word with humility of heart to obtain a knowledge of His will, many seek only to discover something odd or original. . . . Whenever the study of the Scriptures is entered upon without a prayerful, humble, teachable spirit, the plainest as well as the most difficult passages will be wrested from their true meaning . . .  The word of God is plain to all who study it with a prayerful heart. “Light [of truth] is sown for the righteous.’ Psalm 97: 11. And no church can advance in holiness unless its members are earnestly seeking for truth as for hid treasure [Prov. 2: 4; Matt. 13: 44].”- Ibid, Maranatha, p. 132. Read more

As we drive down the highway of divine prophetic chronology, we see all sides along the busy route getting more crowded, cluttered, and raucous with competing and confusing sounds of wars and rumors of wars, lilting swan songs, flashing colored lights of various virtual yet really fantasies, alluring peace-and-safety messages cranked out by religious charlatans, the promise of earthly honor, pomp, and prosperity offered by a thousand and one deceived-turned-deceiver purveyors of error, and encounter all manner of wolves dressed in sheep’s clothing.

And yet all these affirm that we are entering the long-looked-after final stretch of the prophetic journey mapped out by the 2300-day prophecy of Daniel 8: 14. The sudden and strange turn of events in the current political cycle in America (more of this later!), the groaning of our tired, abused old earth and its polluted atmosphere manifested in the so-called natural and man-made (never Satan-caused!) catastrophes  etc., all speaking of the approach of the most momentous time of earth’s history.

The 15-paged pamphlet,ARMAGEDDON–The Time of Spiritual Israel’s Deliverance, with listed mailing address (no printing date or copyright then), as: Louis F. Were, Box 363F, G.P.O., Melbourne, Victoria, Modern Printing Co., Ltd. Chancery Lane, Adelaide, Australia, will be quoted in full, progressively, with notes and additional observations as indicated.

For the scope and profound nature of the subjects, this pamphlet is concise and comprehensive.  It quickly answers questions which have puzzled many Bible students into either giving up further study or taking up Futurism which discards God’s system of enlargement, i.e., type-antitype,  “comparing scripture with scripture,” studying it “line upon line, here a little there a little” (Isa. 28: 9-13). The Bible, through the guidance of the Holy Spirit is its own expositor, not church teachings based on man’s philosophies and traditions. This pamphlet lays down both groundwork and springboard for expansion as we continue studying the topics in the light of the “law and testimony” (Isa. 8: 20) and pertinent historic as well as current events.

 The Threefold Union in the Battle of Armageddon

First, it can never be overemphasized that “spiritual things are spiritually discerned” (1 Cor. 2: 10-16). The sealing work of the plan of salvation is to fit up, moral character-wise, mortal, commandment-keeping living saints with the “fine white linen” of Christ’s righteousness (Rev. 19: 8). Thus dressed for “the marriage supper of the Lamb” (Rev. 19: 7-9), they are blessed with the “right to the tree of life and may enter into the gates into the city” (Rev. 22: 13), and claim “the place” in the “heavenly mansions” Jesus ascended to prepare for them (John 14: 1-3).

It is  at His glorious second coming that these saints received the finishing touch of “immortality” and their “corruptible flesh  was changed to incorruptible at the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump” (1 Cor. 15: 50-56)—the eternal reward of all who remained faithful to the end (Rom. 2: 7; 1 Tim. 2: 16; 1 Cor. 15: 53, 54; Luke 12: 36). It began with conviction and concluded with the transformation of the same faculties of the mind before conversion—that “mind which was also in Christ Jesus,” characterized by “humility and obedience to death” (Phil. 2: 5-8).

Biblical Numerology: NUMBER THREE – Part XX

The Threefold Union in the Coming Final Test

EARTH’S FINAL CRISIS is not global warming or climate change, economic meltdown , oil and other energy sources shortage, hunger and poverty, terrorists, nuclear war, cyber war, and wars of every kind such as ethnic cleansing, genocide, water crisis, drought, famine, the blood-splattered drug wars, global human trafficking of modern-day slavery, the current heart-rending migrant crisis allegedly caused by the Syrian conflict, diseases of every grade, deterioration of society’s morals, greed and fraud in the highest places echelons of human endeavor even in the sciences, the academe, the world of sports and entertainment, increasing devastating upheavals of nature in record-breaking storms, cyclones, tornadoes, hailstorms, tsunamis, earthquakes, etc.

The final crisis of eternal consequences coming upon “every nation, kindred, tongue, and people” of the earth (Rev. 14: 6-12) is the prophesied end-timereligious crisis that will begin in the United States, symbolized in Revelation 13 as “the beast with two “lamb-like horns.” This gentle “beast,” however, so unlike in origin, ascent to power, and initial characteristics of the four beasts of prey preceding it, symbolizing the four successive world empires that struggled mightily against the other for world dominion, namely, Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, and Rome, respectively,—will sadly transform into one “speaking like a dragon.” John describes it as becoming the “image of or to the beast.”
