“And when I shall put thee out, [Lucifer] I will cover the heaven, and make the stars thereof dark; I will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon shall not give her light.” Ezekiel 32:7
The GOOD NEWS IS, that dark cloud coming our way, is not an asteroid! The darkness covering the
sun with a cloud, is a God thing. The moon not giving her light, is a God thing. Reminding us of the curse to all who would “step on his mountain,” would be death. God we know as Jesus would never hurt or crush us. Then who is this we fear? None other than the lone wolf of a pack he leads TO DESTROY THE EARTH, Lucifer a created being, an eternal living robot, gone viral with anger to destroy those who won’t bow down to him, the King of
the Locust, the King of evil, the self made man who needs nothing but the worship of those he can purchase, bribe and marry into his kingdom.
Diversion we say, give us something to think about to take away the fear of what will happen to Lucifer as Jesus grows near? His plan to have no laws, for the world to worship The Lawless man, seems to be gaining ground, until we find, we’ve bought into a system devoid of compassion, boundaries and love. The basis of business is the Business Session, B.S. in how to deliver “happiness” in a “bottle” or “package” or “blessing” that will satisfy the longing in our heart for “community” with our god or GOD and man?
He, God, The Lord, has power to withdraw His Holy Spirit from those who reject His Kingdom of Truth. The Jews know the frightful end of killing the Son of God by rebelling His mercy and grace. . . but do we too, make God out to be a Jew, that lacks compassion for those died for?
Do you lack compassion for those trying to worship and bow down to Jesus the Jew, who died for you to see there must be laws for His Kingdom of Truth on earth as it is in Heaven?
Can we see the Sense of Humor in looking back upon our Own Experience in His love, He has taken us up and down a path, we needed, to know the difference between God the Creator and Lucifer, the created, like you and me. lol
He can take peace of mind from created beings, until we find in Him, THE TRUTH and sanity that comes from being loved by God.
“Again, the command is given: ‘Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and show My
people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.” It is not the wicked world, but those whom the Lord designates as “My people,” that are to be reproved for their transgressions. He declares further. “Yet they seek Me daily, and delight to know My ways, as a nation that did righteousness, and forsook not the ordinance of their God.” (Isaiah 58:1,2.) Here is brought to view a class who think themselves righteous and appear to manifest great interest in the service of God; but the stern and solemn rebuke of the Searcher of hearts proves them to be trampling upon the divine precepts.”
“Thus saith the LORD, Keep ye judgment, and do justice: for my salvation is near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed. Blessed is the man that doeth this, and the son of man that layeth hold on it; that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and keepeth his hand from doing any evil. Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the LORD, to serve him, and to love the name of the LORD, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant; Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people. (Isaiah 56:1,2, 6,7.)
“The prophet [Isaiah] points out the ordinance which has been forsaken: “And they that shall be of
thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in. If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honorable; and shalt honor Him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words: (Isaiah 58:12-13). This prophecy also applies in our time. The breach was made in the law of God when the Sabbath was changed by the Roman power [Dark Ages]. But the time has come for that divine institution to be restored. The breach is to be repaired and the foundation of many generations to be raised up.
“Hallowed by the Creator’s rest a, and blessing, the Sabbath was kept by Adam in his innocence in
holy Eden; by Adam, fallen yet repentant, when he was driven from his happy estate. It was kept by all the patriarchs, from Abel to righteous Noah, to Abraham, to Jacob. When the chosen people were in bondage in Egypt, many, in the midst of prevailing idolatry, lost their knowledge of God’s law; but when the Lord delivered Israel, He proclaimed His law in awful grandeur to the assembled multitude, [Mount Sinai] that they might know His will and fear and obey Him forever.
“From that day to the present the knowledge of God’s law has been preserved in the earth, and
the Sabbath of the fourth commandment has been kept. Though the “man of sin” succeeded in trampling underfoot God’s holy day, yet even in the period of her supremacy there were hidden in secret places, faithful souls who paid it honor. Since the Reformation, there have been some in every generation to maintain its observance. Though often in the midst of reproach and persecution, a constant testimony has been borne to the perpetuity of the law of God and the sacred obligation of the creation Sabbath.
“These truths, as presented in Revelation 14 in connection with “the everlasting gospel” will distinguish the church of Christ at the time of His appearing. For as the result of the threefold message it is announced: “Here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus: And this message is
the last to be given before the coming of the Lord. Immediately following its proclamation the Son of man is seen by the prophet, coming in glory to reap the harvest of the earth.” Triumph of God’s Love, pl 267 Great Controversy p. 452-454
GODS PEOPLE DELIVERED
“When the protection of human laws shall be withdrawn from those who honor the law of God, there will be, in different lands, a simultaneous movement for their destruction. As the time appointed in the decrees draws near, the people will conspire to root out the hated sect. It will be determined to strike in the one night a decisive blow, which shall utterly silence the voice of dissent and reproof.
” . .It is now, in the hour of utmost extremity, that the God of Israel will interpose for the deliverance of His chosen. Saith the Lord: Ye shall have a song, as in the night when a holy solemnity is kept; and gladness of heart, as when one goeth with a pipe to come into the mountain of the LORD, to the mighty One of Israel. And the LORD shall cause his glorious voice to be heard, and shall shew the lighting down of his arm, with the indignation of his anger, and with the flame of a devouring fire, with scattering, and tempest, and hailstones. (Isaiah 30:29-30).
DELIVERED BY HAILSTONES, FIRE, FLAME, & TEMPEST
“By the people of God a voice, clear and melodious, is heard, saying, “Look up,” and lifting their eyes to the heavens, they behold the bow of promise. The black, angry clouds that covered the firmament are parted, and like Stephen they look up steadfastly into heaven and see the glory of God and the Son of man seated upon His throne. In His divine form they discern the marks of His humiliation; and from His lips they hear the request presented before His FAther and the holy angels: “Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.” John 17:24. Again a voice, musical and triumphant, is heard saying: “They come! they come! holy, harmless, and undefiled. They have kept the word of My patience; they shall walk among the angels;” and the pale , quivering lips of those who have held fast their faith utter a shout of victory.
“It is at midnight [This corresponds with the sound of the shofars a midnight in Jerusalem, when yearly Jesus our High Priest, places the “sins” “confessed” to God, on the Head of the Scapegoat Lucifer] The sun appears shining in its strength. Signs and wonders follow in quick succession. The wicked look with terror and amazement upon the scene, while the righteous behold with solemn joy the token s of their deliverance. Everything in nature seems turned out of its course. The streams cease to flow. Dark, heavenly clouds come up and clash against each other. [The 7th vial of the 7th Angel is pouring out the 7th plague of hail] In the midst of the angry heavens is one clear space of indescribable glory, whence comes the voice of God like the sound of many waters, saying: “It is done.” Revelation 16:17.
Daniel 12:2 will be fulfilled: “It is a midnight,” on the final Day of Atonement, Jesus places on the head of Lucifer, all the sins of the world, confessed on the head of Jesus Christ, brought into the Heavenly Sanctuary, taken out by Jesus Our High Priest, to place on the real “Scapegoat” Lucifer! Hurrah!
“And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book. Dan 12:2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
Yom Kippur: Perhaps the Last Day of Atonement on Earth? because like last year, the Day of Atonement is surrounded by the Blood Moons [The symbol of corruption in the Priesthood] on Passover, and a few days after The Day of Atonement.
The day begin with self examination, to repent of known sins, to remove all sins against God, before midnight, of the Jewish “News Years Eve”, called THE DAY OF ATONEMENT. It begins at sunset Tuesday September 22, 2015 with a day of fasting. Israel is shut down! The roads are closed including all highways! At midnight the Shofars [Ram’s Horns] will sound to welcome in the 50th Year of Jubilee and hopefully The New Year will find, the male and female angels on the Mercy Seat in agreement the Ten Commandments are the rule on earth as they are in Heaven. On this day forgiveness of sins is also asked of God.
Figuratively, Michael the Archangel, The Great Prince of God/Jesus Our High Priest who came as the only begotten Son of God, is worthy to end the Great Controversy between Michael and Lucifer, and place all sins confessed to God, by gathering up the “prayers” and “confessions of sin” to place these sins on the Head of Lucifer. Therefore: it is possible next year at Yom Kippur, the Trumpets will give the “certain sound” that Adam and Eve were anxious to hear. The Garden of Eden will no longer be a place to experience the difference between good and evil! Hurrah!
Comments by Connie Ordelheide Anderson:
Had the Children of Israel known it would be the “works” of one man and his family in the camp, that would bring about a punishment for the Children of Israel during war, there would be no Achan in the camp, stealing what belonged to God, from the fall of Jericho. No man can take the credit for God destroying Jericho with an earthquake. What belonged to God, was all the spoils found in the Fall of Jericho, because no man can take the credit for what all God had done that day! And what all, God will do in the future, to protect and defend those disciples in His army who are called THE DEFENDERS OF TRUTH.
I was told by Lonnie Melashanko at Camp Meeting in Lincoln, Nebraska and Union College View Church. “We will not see the signs in the sky, like the Dark Day, that brought an awareness of the 7 Trumpets being fulfilled again.” To God’s credit, He has humbled the very best, and the very least of His servants, to bow down and serve Him, as brothers and sisters in His Army. Peter let us know, it is not a sin, to make mistakes! It is then Jesus said to Peter, “Feed My Sheep.”
Being humbled by God, seems to be a prerequisite for the greatest men and woman to be humbled first, before they gave their best sermons ever!
“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not! Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.” (Last verses in Luke 13)
P. S. Sorry this post is so long. Time is running out. This message was opened by 9-11-2001. It’s already been 13 years, to see we might be guilty of trying to silence the voice of the Holy Spirit speaking to His Prophets and Saints!
But let them that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the Lord. Jeremiah 9:24
All boasting of merit in ourselves is out of place.
The command is not, Let him that glorieth glory in himself, but in God. . . .There is, then, no ground for men to take glory to themselves. For every blessing which they enjoy, for every good quality which they possess, they are indebted to the grace of Christ. None should exalt themselves as as possessing wisdom or righteousness. . . .
Those who have the deepest experience in the things of God are the farthest removed from pride or self exaltation. They have the humblest thought of self, and the most exalted conceptions of the glory and excellence of Christ. . . .When we have our eyes fixed upon heaven, and have clear views of the character of Christ, we shall exalt the Lord God in our hearts.
As on becomes acquainted with the history of the Redeemer, he discovers in himself serious defects; his unlikeness to Christ is so great that he/she sees the necessity for radical changes in their life. Still they study with a desire to become like his great Exemplar. He catches the looks, the spirit, of he beloved Master. By beholding . . .he/she we become changed into the same image.
It is not by looking away from Him that we imitate the life of Jesus, but by talking of Him, by dwelling upon His perfections, by seeking to refine the taste and elevate the character, by trying through faith and love, and by earnest, persevering effort, to approach the perfect Pattern. By having a knowledge of Christ, – His words, His habits, and His lessons of instruction, – we borrow the virtues of the character we have so closely studied, and become imbued with the spirit we have so much admired. Jesus becomes to us “the chiefest among then thousand,” and the One “altogether lovely.”
Those jealous of happy Christians do not know their feels of inhibitions, in thinking, they are not good enough, as they continually compare themselves to Christ, they feel He is the standard, how can he/she/ we/they possibly attain perfection? The closer I come to Christ, the more imperfect I see myself, the more unworthy to speak for him, the less I want to talk about myself. This humbling comes in the challenge to be more like Jesus. Who can rightly represent such love, compassion and patience?
These people are prosperous and might make others think, they have something you want, but it cannot be purchased. They cannot give you what they have, because it is the Holy Spirit, the joy of knowing someone, much better than they are.
“Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom.” Jeremiah 9:23
Men are not to rejoice in their wisdom, their strength, or their riches, but in the fact that they have a knowledge of Christ. This knowledge is the most excellent, the most precious, that we can posses. It is the pledge of everlasting life. For “this” is life eternal, that we might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.” Money cannot buy it, intellect cannot grasp it, power cannot command it; but to all who will accept it God’s glorious grace is freely given. But men may feel their need, and, renouncing all self-dependence, accept salvation as a a gift. Those who enter heaven will not scale its walls by their own righteousness, no will its gates be opened to them for costly offerings of gold or silver; but they will gain an entrance to the many mansions of the Father’s house through the merit of the cross of Christ.
The self-righteous feel no need of Christ. And when those who profess His name extol their own wisdom and goodness, they give evidence that they are not acquainted with him. As soon as Christ is revealed to the soul, the sinner feels that his only hope is in the Lamb of God as the only source of forgiveness and redemption for their sins. As Christ begins to open His love before him watch the effect, and see what it is. Many claim this experience who are strangers to the love of Christ. But it leads on to look with humility upon himself, . . .if he gives evidence that the heavenly reward is of more value to him than his worldly possessions, we may know that beams of life from Christ are shining upon his soul.
Out of Christ, human wisdom in all its forms is foolishness; for those who trust in their own wisdom, have lost eternity out of their reckoning . . . To all who believe in Jesus as able to save to the utmost all that come unto God by Him, the gospel is the power and wisdom of God.
I have the pleasure of knowing these soldiers for Christ, they are missionaries in their daily life. And somehow, the sign over their head, is the anointing of joy, happiness, love and forgiveness! Of course I have to adopted them! They are truly “wise guys.” But you’d never know by how silly these “wise guys” are, and having fun is their middle name. Can’t help but love em!
What do they do for fun? I have a huge photo collection, but not as many as Ryan!
We also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement. (Romans 5:11)
Thank God that He who spilled His blood for us, lives to plead it, lives to make intercession for every soul who receives Him. “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” The blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us from all sin. . . .We need to keep ever before us the efficacy of the blood of Jesus. That life-cleansing, life-sustaining blood, appropriated by living faith, is our hope. We need to grow in appreciation of its inestimable value, for it speaks for us only as e by faith claim its virtue, keeping the conscience clean and at peace with God. This is represented as the pardoning blood, inseparably connected with the resurrection and life of our Redeemer, illustrated by the ever-flowing stream that proceeds from the throne of God, the water of the river of life.
The wonderful symbol of the living bird dipped in the blood of the bird slain and then set free to its joyous life [Leviticus 14:4-8], is to us the symbol of the atonement. There were death and life bended, presenting to the searcher for truth and hidden treasure, the union of the pardoning blood with the resurrection and life of our Redeemer. The bird slain over the living water; that flowing stream was a symbol of the ever flowing, ever cleansing efficacy of the blood of Christ, the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. . . .
We are to have free access to the atoning blood of Christ. This we must regard as the most precious privilege, the greatest blessing, ever granted to sinful man. . . .How deep, how side and continuous in this stream! To every soul thirsting after holiness there is repose, there is rest, there is the quickening influence of the Holy Spirit, and then the holy, happy, peaceful walk and precious communion with Christ.
ELLEN WHITE QUOTE: comments by connie
The bird used in the ceremony to purify a leper, needed to two wild birds. A tame bird would not flay away as required by the symbolism.
The purification of a leper is given in more detail than that of the purification for any other defilement. As the leper was excluded not only from the sanctuary but from the camp, there were two ceremonies included in the restoration. The first entitled him to reenter the camp and associate with with his brethren. The second, a week later, was performed in the court of the tabernacle and restored him to full fellowship and to all the privileges of the covenant relationship.
The first ceremony, which restored the leper to the camp, took place outside the camp.
The birds were probably sparrows. Some commentators compare the two birds to the two goats used in the Day of Atonement service, the one the Lord’s goat, the other the goat for Azazel, Lucifer. The birds were not used for cleansing. The man had already been pronounced clean. In the case of the birds there was no blood sprinkled on the them. The sparrows had no symbolic atoning properties, or healing power, they were not sacrifices at all.
The ceremony constituted a beautiful picture of what God had done and would do for the leper. From death to life, to fly away, to the heavens is the gift of being perfectly healed, when the real sacrifice would come, Jesus would provide the bridge between earth and heaven. Our Messiah will come back to take us home with Him to the mansions he has made for us in Heaven.
Someday we too will fly away….off this earth….like the healing that comes….when we obey rather than sacrifice, Our Lord. And try to nail our sins, on Him. Blaming God is a sin! When we obey, there is no need to nail Jesus to the cross again!
Symbols forgotten by the Jews, had misplaced the meaning of the endless slaughter of sacrifices, without a heart for the beasts. Love for Jesus, expands to love for our fellow man, and love for our pets, and we do not want to destroy relationships. When we lose friends, a part of us dies within our hearts. Enemies? Smile, and they will become your friends. You have the power to restore, to atone, for a relationship, to be healed, to be blessed, to return when you sacrifice yourself, to be a friend.
Recently my prayers for my enemy was restored after some ten years of an unusual broken relationship. It was worth it! It took time, but in time, he came to understand my actions were all about, pointing us back to Jesus, the standard of truth. When we compare ourselves to the suffering of Jesus, we have no room to complain about our mental, social, physical or spiritual journey.
The road to peace, is not within our hands, it is within our hearts. I need to pray for my enemies who also are finding this relationship with God, is very humbling! Amen?
Humble ain’t so bad. It’s easier for poor folks with no where to turn but to the Lord.
