Biblical Numerology: NUMBER THREE – Part XXI

 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.”

Biblical Numerology: NUMBER THREE – Part XIX

Three Principal Subjects to Unite the Flock and Sanctify the Soul

Character unity, based on the heavenly standard, transcends organizational unity particularly that of spiritual Babylon’s, which is based on a global unity that demonizes the individuality of religion.  The former is based on true freedom and liberty and is as unchanging, uncluttered, and everlasting in its principles and methods of achievement, as its divine Author and Example is–Jesus Christ, the humble Creator of heavens and the earth, the world’s Redeemer,  merciful High Priest, Mediator and Advocate in heaven, who, like the Father,  “changeth not” “neither is there any variableness nor shadow of turning,” is “the same yesterday, today, and forever,” the great I Am, and thus, unquestionably, to the earnest seeker of truth, and adopted the sons of daughters of God, is “the Author and finisher of our faith.”

Human organizational unity and all that comes with it, though based even on the most recent cutting-edge knowledge enhanced by the latest science and technology, is characterized by constantly changing concepts and priorities, increasingly spiritualistic philosophies which are but outgrowths of ancient heathen myths and esoteric wisdom, and policies that change with every political cycle, and every time there is a changing of the guards among those occupying the various ivy towers of “the great men of the earth” with craftily-designed legalese and jargon  that the man on main street will never understand, thus, needs “lawyering up.” Read more

THE BATTLE IS NOT YOURS, NOR THE MAJORITY’S BUT GOD’S

     

“Thus saith the Lord unto you: Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s2 Chronicles 20: 15.

“This great multitude.” – The Latin phrase “Vox populi, vox Dei,” meaning, “the voice of the people is the voice of God,” is egregious. It is one of the leading causes and means of mass deception and mass manipulation, from small groups to kingdoms, nations, and religions, of course. It is antithetical to the truth that salvation is individual.  “Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who works in you both to will and to do His good pleasure.” Phil. 2: 12, 13. “It is written, ‘Be holy for I am holy. . . . the Father who without partiality judges according to each one’s work . . . “ See 1 Pet. 1: 15-18; Rev. 22: 12..

Prophecy and history testify that more souls will lose eternal life through organized and craftily orchestrated deception, subterfuge, compromise, confusion, and counterfeits of truth than persecution and ignominious death combined for standing true to individual conviction. Because of fallen human nature, “Vox populi, vox Dei” is coercive, intolerant, a gargantuan bully, and cruel. Given the opportunity, a deceived people, generation, nation, and yes, church and religion, will, as has darkened the history of mankind, stifle individual conscience and resort to deadly force when rationality and reason yield to crowd mentality,—carnal human nature that has yielded  to the wiles of Satan and is controlled by “the enemy of God and man,” “the murderer from the beginning” and “the father of lies.”    Read more

THE THREE: THAT BEAR WITNESSES IN HEAVEN, AND AGREE ON EARTH

     “The greatest homage we can pay to the truth is to use it.”- Charles Dickens.   “It often requires more bravery to tell the simple truth than it does to win a battle.”- Josh Billings (pen name of Henry Wheeler, American writer, journalist, and humorist second only to Mark Twain.) The most translated female non-fiction author in the history of literature, as well as the most translated American non-fiction author of either gender, Ellen G. White (see Wikipedia), wrote the following regarding Bible truth:  “Truth is no truth to them who do not practice it.” “Age does not make error become truth.” “The garments of truth are often stolen to hide features of heresy.” “Vital truth is impressed upon the mind by the Holy Spirit’s power.” And, “Christ is the inexhaustible wellspring of truth.”  

‘Higher criticism’ and ‘higher education’ destroy faith in God’s Word

Apostle Paul taught the early Christian church the three fundamental truths of the science of salvation of the eternal gospel from which the other glorious truths branch out from, namely, (emphasis supplied): Read more
