The False Prophet Part II.

The False Prophet Part 2 of 2
Part      [1]       [2]
{ Update Note: This post has been updated to bring it to be comparable to the full version of this section as in the author's book, currently under development, having the same title as this blog. Also included in this discussion topic are reworked extracts from the chapter The Elect and ‘Grace, Sin And The Commandments of GOD’ of Bible 101 – The Holy Bible Expounded. These are included to highlight to these people of GOD through, by and of the Everlasting Covenant mediated by JESUS CHRIST of their main sins and the great evils that near all of the Elect both inside and outside of the Church of GOD have fully embracedin the last era just before the End of the Age. These additional discussions were never, and will not be part of this section discussion in the actual completed work of the book upon which this blog is based. They are included here as part of the progressing goals of the work of this author in the published discussion of this work. For more information on these progressing goals please read the content warning, the main page of this author's main blog and also the posts, A Status Update 2014’ and ‘Go Tell The Worthless Shepherd Of The Sheep’ in the blog ‘A Christian Pilgrimage’. }

Not long after the Protestant Reformation through which the Great Harlot of the Christmas religion spawned her harlot daughters (i.e. the bulk of her daughter Protestant churches), some one thousand two hundred and sixty years after the Church of GOD of the Pergamos era went ‘underground’ (Revelation 12:14) when the Great Harlot and her cohorts seek to wipe the one true Church of GOD out through the Nicene Creedthe Church of GOD resurfaced under a fast changing world order of the European Renaissance. Throughout her hidden years the Pergamos era Church continued to sow the seed of the Gospel message away from the reach of the Great Harlot, into Northern Europe and far flung Asia. With the power of the Great Harlot somewhat restrained by the changing geopolitical and religious landscape in Europe, the Church of GOD began to slowly and quietly grow into areas there where the Great Harlot had little or no control over the social political order. Even as the eroding of the power of the Great Harlot Church saw the Church of GOD began quietly taking root in some areas formally under her sway, a whole new world across the Atlantic was beginning to open up.

Satan the Devil, that ancient Dragon and Serpent, having failed to wipe out the Church of GOD and knowing full well that his Antichrist Mother Church's hold over the political powers in a beginning new geopolitical world order was fast diminishing, engineered the Protestant Reformation as a vehicle to drown out the Gospel message, preached and taught by the Church of GOD. This the great Protestant movement does through an avalanche (or tsunami, whichever term you preferred) of varying and rationally confusing doctrines and messages. This milestone event of the Church of GOD surfacing (in the Thyatira era) from her hidden years was preceded by the Great Harlot spawning the main bulk of her harlot daughters in the Protestant Reformation movement.

The Thyatira Era. [thy]

“I know your works, love, service, faith, and your patience; and as for your works, the last are more than the first.

The Thyatira Era started as a small work of scattered individuals and family groups (the few faithful remnants from the Church of GOD of the Pergamos era which had by that time gone apostate embracing the doctrines of the Protestant Reformation) sharing their faith and commitment to obey GOD. There was little work done to preach and bear witness to the main Gospel message of the Kingdom of GOD. The main focus of the beginning of this era was on living a Christian life ordered according to the teachings of the Christian Holy Scriptures and the Holy Commandments and Royal Laws of GOD. After centuries of relentless persecution by the Great Harlot, the Church of GOD that emerged, after its one thousand two hundred sixty hidden years, was a loose association of scattered believers of mostly family units. This was not too different from the time after the last of the twelve Apostles, the Apostle John died.

In almost all the periods or eras of the Church of GOD’s journey through the centuries, there was a typical occurrence, as soon as the Church of GOD began to grow they were rapidly infiltrated and inundated by agents of the Satan the Devil, the Evil Adversary.

If you were to read through the New Testament records without letting yourself be blinded by the lies of the Christmas religion which focus on Scriptures that they can twist and add spins to, all done to advocate the altering to change andor the abolishing of the Commandments of GOD and the breaking of the New Covenant while ignoring all those Scriptures that testified against their spins and twists; you will be able to note that soon after the Church of GOD was founded and began to grow even when the Apostles were still alive, Antichrists began joining the Church of GOD to sow their seeds of heresy, setting the stage for the rise of the great counterfeit fraudulent Christianity that would eventually force the Church of GOD to go ‘underground’ through the Nicene Creed.

While the Apostles were alive they served as anchors to the faith and Gospel of JESUS CHRIST, constantly battling against agents of the Evil Adversary within the Church of GOD. When the second Messenger to the Ephesus era, the Apostle John, who was the last of the twelve Apostles whom JESUS personally appointed, died, the remnant of the Ephesus era under the third and succeeding Messengers began to wane in zeal for the work of preaching the message of the Gospel (‘the first work’) as well as keeping the commandments of GOD (‘the first love’) . This presented the opportunity for Satan the Devil to greatly grow his counterfeit Church side by side the Church of GOD. With no clear apparent central authority in the Church of GOD and no clear boundaries between congregations of the true Church from those ran and ruled by Antichrists, doctrines of Antichrists were often insidiously introduced and readily accepted by members (Revelation 2:6, 9, 14, 15, 20 - 21) of GOD’s Elect. This is the typical pattern in at least five era of the Church of GOD starting from the first period, the Ephesus era until the Sardis era. Even during periods where a central leadership mitigated this contamination from the doctrines of the Antichrists into the Church of GOD, where the Church more or less stood steadfast in most of the central doctrines of keeping the Commandments of GOD and holding on to commemoration of the New Covenant, members of the Elect including those who are elders and leaders are not impervious to embracing the more deceptive lies being advanced by the Antichrist Churches and through Antichrists' elements within the Church of GOD. GOD neither prevents nor ever forces HIS Elect against the exercise of their freewill choices to embrace and believe lies and to sin even very blasphemous sins that explicitly malign and slander (Mark 3:28 – 29) GOD.

During HIS three and a half years ministry JESUS taught and foretold (i.e. prophesied of) this to HIS disciples in one of HIS parables.

Another parable He put forth to them, saying: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field; but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way. But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares also appeared.
Matthew 13:24 – 26

The field is the world, the good seeds are the sons of the kingdom, but the tares are the sons of the wicked one. The enemy who sowed them is the devil, the harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are the angels. Therefore as the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of this age.
Matthew 13:38 – 40

The reason nearly the whole world of professed “Christianity” doesn’t seem to know or understand this is because they have all converted to a “Christianity” that have being twisting the commandments, laws, testimonies, revelation and messages of the Holy Christian Scriptures including the very Covenant of GOD made in the BLOOD of JESUS CHRIST into meaningless fables and stories that are irrelevant to their so called “Christian” faith.

Nevertheless I have a few things against you, because you allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols.

As is typical throughout the journey of the Church of GOD from the Apostolic days, no sooner then the Church of GOD of the Thyatira era began to grow, false converts began to infiltrate her in great numbers from those who had been members of the churches of the Great Harlot and her harlot daughters. These false converts entered into the fellowship with the Elect but continued to serve Satan the Devil, their true master (Romans 6:16). As soon as some of them have maneuvered themselves into positions of seniority and leadership as had happened in previous era, they began to introduce destructive heresies that advocated the breaking of the Commandments of GOD and the New Covenant even as they pretended to be pious and faithful. Of special note is that with the Church of GOD no longer hidden from the view of the world we would (or should anyway) be able to clearly see to identify the personalities that the Christian Holy Scriptures prophesied nearly two thousand years ago fulfilled exactly at their appointed time in mankind’s history.

Here Biblical prophecies spoke of a woman, who made claims to being a prophetess. The Jezebel symbolism is that of a woman who holds and wields power through her strong influence and control over her husband (1 Kings 21:25) to corrupt the people of GOD by Covenant, leading them away from serving GOD into embracing pagan and idolatrous doctrines and worship. This woman taught and advanced that the New Covenant Passover renamed (by the Apostle Paul to advance his personal ego agenda of preaching against circumcision) to the so called Lord's Supper or Communion, could be kept as often as one wishes (‘to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols). This was a doctrine she retained from her earlier years while a member of the Antichrist's Church. Instead of commemorating the New Covenant only at the annual Passover (with an additional ordained and commanded allowance for unavoidable circumstances) that had been kept by the Church of GOD since it was instituted by JESUS before HE died for the sins of mankind, she together with her husband led many in the Church of GOD to ‘commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols’ by keeping the so called Lord's Supper quarterly.

If you were to research through the history of the Church of GOD from the period after the Protestant Reformation to today, you will find exactly such an individual doing exactly just that. And this personality was none other than Mrs. Ellen G White who together with her husband, James Springer White, became members of the Church of GOD. Both James Springer and his wife Ellen were originally from the Christmas religion and were “converted” to the Church of GOD when they embraced the seventh day Sabbath. James worked his way to an elder position in the Church of GOD and through him, Mrs. White proclaiming herself a prophetess of GOD was able to seduce many of the members to break the Everlasting Covenant getting them to observe the Passover Covenant as the Lord's Supper quarterly instead of the day and manner that JESUS CHRIST had instituted and commanded. A great many heresies were introduced by this wicked woman through her evil plagiarized lies claimed as direct revelations and visions from GOD. Eventually through her and her husband together with other elders, many converted members in the Church of GOD were led into apostasy into the Seventh Day Adventist organization.

The term ‘Lord's Supperwas coined and introduced by the Apostle Paul (from his personal evil lust driven agenda in his vendetta against those who had dared to challenge his supreme authority as the least and therefore the greatest Apostle of GOD through demanding that the gentile converts who were his personal property to be circumcised) specifically because he wanted to avoid the term ‘Passoveras part of his ego supergorging agenda to preach against circumcision and ‘the Law of Moses’. The term ‘Lord's Supper’ is neither an appropriate nor a correct term to refer to the Everlasting New Covenant as the fulfillment to the same Passover that GOD had commanded to the ancient Israelite as the Type. As the fulfillment of the Old Testament Passover (which was the Type), the New Covenant Passover is the mechanism by which GOD has redeemed all of mankind through the death and BLOOD of JESUS CHRIST who was slain as ‘the LAMB of GOD who takes away the sin of the world’. As the blood of the lambs slain and applied on the door posts saved all the first born of the ancient Israelite, so also CHRIST as ‘the LAMB of GOD’ was slain to pay the death penalty all of mankind have incurred through our sins in our evil conduct through the course of our lives. This redemption having given all of mankind a second chance to receive eternal life (of which all those called in this age are the first batch or Firstfruits) that has been GOD's intention for all mankind when HE created the first family of mankind.
The term Passover’ carried the important meaning of passing over the sins of mankind which the term ‘Lord's Supper’ and also  the term ‘Communion’ do not. In the lengthy post ‘Readers Question – Why Do Innocents Suffer If GOD Is Just’ you can read the discussion on the Apostle Paul's vehemence rages against circumcision because of the wound to his ego when some of the Jewish convert required the gentile converts of the Apostle Paul, be circumcised. A discussion on the keeping, honoring and performing the New Covenant Passover commemoration of ‘the LORD's death til HE comes’ (i.e. until HE returns to restore the Kingdom and reward HIS Saints) can be found in the post ‘Passover 2015 C.E.’ of the ‘A Christian Pilgrimage’ blog of this work.

And I gave her time to repent of her sexual immorality, and she did not repent.

As is often the case when dealing with the wicked, GOD gave Mrs. White plenty of time to repent of her evil lies advances as of receiving visions and revelations from GOD. From the Prophet Balaam to King Saul, from the wicked Jewish experts and authorities to a failed Apostle appointee, Judas Iscariot, of the days of CHRIST as a SON of man, from Antichrists and false apostles in the Church of GOD during the Apostolic days to the Son of Perdition in the last era of the Church of GOD, GOD allowed the wicked to carried out their evil schemes so that full spectrum of evil may be revealed to be understood by all who truly love GOD. This GOD does also partly as an instrument to test and prove the faithfulness of HIS Saints to refine and purify HIS chosen (Daniel 11:35) that they might be accounted worthy to attain to greatness and glory of high office at JESUS CHRIST’s return (Revelation 22:12). Additionally this would also serve to identify and disqualify those from among the Elect of GOD those who would be faithless and fruitless (Jude 1:10 – 13; 2 Peter 2:18 – 21) whose devotion and commitment to GOD were suspect (Matthew 22:14; 24:24; John 15:1 – 2) not founded on the HOLY SPIRIT and the truth of the Christian Holy Scriptures but by deceitful insincerity (i.e. pretend sincerity) and unbridled lust.

Indeed I will cast her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds. I will kill her children with death, and all the churches shall know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts. And I will give to each one of you according to your works.

There are two fulfillments. Of these: the first fulfillment was the Type that was fulfilled in the life and death of Mrs. Ellen G WhiteThe second will be the Actual which referred to the apostate Church that she and her husband founded and will be fulfilled during the Day of the LORD, a year long event of punishing plagues that precedes the return of JESUS CHRIST. Today (as of 2015 C.E.) the apostate Churches established from the doctrines of Mrs. Ellen G White can be found in two main religious organizational entities, one the original holding her main doctrines of quarterly keeping of the so called Lord's Supper (and already embracing some of the doctrines of the Christmas religion), and another apportioning the name of Church of God of the Sardis era (and many of the doctrines of Thyatira era) but holding to the adulterous practice of the so called Lord's Supper introduced by Mrs. Ellen G White.

“Now to you I say, and to the rest in Thyatira, as many as do not have this doctrine, who have not known the depths of Satan, as they say, I will put on you no other burden. But hold fast what you have till I come.

The attacks by Satan the Devil through his agents in Mr. and Mrs. White caused many to depart from the faith into apostasy. The attacks had also seriously eroded the zeal and faith of the Saints of the Thyatira era that by the end of the Thyatira period despite the large growth after a small beginning, those who have not embraced the doctrines of Mrs. Ellen G White, were left tenaciously holding on to the few truth that had been handled down when this era first began. With these relatively few remaining faithfuls, GOD raised up the next era, the Sardis era.

There were several other movements in this era that worked to destroy the faith of the Elect and led them to subsequently abandon the work of preaching the Gospel message. These movements were not recorded in prophecies of Revelation 3 as they were not directly involved with the Church of GOD never being members in GOD’s Church (not having accepted and entered into the New Covenant) nor do they have a direct relationship with the Church of GOD. Now remember, the Revelation chapters 2 and 3 prophecies focused exclusively, as a concise summary, on the journey of GOD’s Church from the Apostolic days to the very end of this Age of Man. The focus was and is on what transpired within the Church of GOD that affected the Spirituality and calling of the members. Events in the world no matter how major or historic if they do not directly relate to and are not connected to the Church of GOD (Matthew 16:18; Acts 2:1 – 4) were not recorded. In this as is with everything that the Christian Holy Scriptures taught and recorded the Christian Bible had been consistent throughout.

William Miller and later after him, Charles Taze Russell were among those who had embraced some of the truth taught by the Church of GOD of this era while retaining their Christmas religion's doctrines in a similar way as was in the days of the Apostles when converts from paganism became members in GOD’s Church retained their pagan practices introduced their heretical pagan beliefs into the Church of GOD (2 Peter 2:1; 2 Corinthians 11:13 – 14). Through them, Satan the Devil was able to destroy the faith of those who were not zealous and committed as well as to cause the message of Gospel to be ridiculed (2 Peter 2:2) so that any one who preached it would also be ridiculed.

While Mr. and Mrs. Whites were converts into the Church of GOD, men like William Miller and Charles Taze Russell never were. They were never members in the Church of GOD. Because of the loose associations of the congregations of the Church of GOD which were overseen mostly by elders (i.e. Pastors aka Shepherds) over local areas during this period (which is true in four out of the seven periods or stretches of the Church’s journey from the Apostolic days to the End of the Age), heretical doctrines of the Antichrist Churches often filtered into the Church of GOD and were embraced by many members in GOD’s Church (Revelation 2:6, 9, 13  – 15). Even when the Church of GOD were organized in a centralized top down hierarchical structure, doctrines (outside of Sunday, Easter, Christmas and Trinity) of the Christmas religion were still frequently being embraced. Those who embraced such doctrines have been not just the lay members and elders but even the very Messengers to each of the Church era throughout her journey through the centuries.

The works of men like with William Miller would set the stage for the proliferation of doomsday death cults (Matthew 24:5) a century later. The main thrust of Satan the Devil through the works of William Miller and other prophets of doom was to maximize the ‘cry wolf’ effect to cause any who would do the work of GOD in preaching the Gospel message to be held to open ridicule. By twisting the Scriptures and interpreting them without understanding; reading chapters and verses mostly out of context to arrogantly declare erroneously that the End of the World was going to occur at various date and time, these false prophets caused the true Gospel message to become a message that would be much mocked and scoffed at. In these many of the leadership among the Elect too giving full expression to their ego gorging lust, also indulged in to give the agents of Satan the Devil plenty of ammunition to ridicule the truth and the Church of GOD. That is right many of GOD's Elect, even those who were the actual Messengers to the Church of GOD of both the Philadelphia and Laodicea eras directly caused and are personally responsible for the name of GOD's Church (and consequently by extension, the very name of GOD) and the message of the Gospel to be held to open ridicule and greatly maligned by many.

The true Gospel is primarily about the return of LORD JESUS as KING of Kings and LORD of Lords to restore the Kingdom to Israel and usher in the thousand years of worldwide peace (Daniel 2:44; Acts 1:6; Revelation 20:4; Luke 19:12 – 13) as the basis to urge all to repent and to start believing GOD. This is the very message that this work has been preaching fully and precisely supported by the testimonial references to the Christian Holy Scriptures. By the time the Thyatira era ended (from the schism that saw the founding of the Seventh Day Adventist Church) many in the Church of GOD had become weary of preaching the Gospel and began to stop doing the work in much the same way that the Ephesus era did, ceasing to do the ‘first work’ that had been the unfaltering zeal and work of the Apostles of CHRIST throughout their lives.

No doubt William Miller may from all appearance be a sincere, GOD fearing man. Appearance of sincerity and of being GOD fearing is not definitive of whether a person is a faithful follower of GOD or not. There are many perceptively very sincere and faithful followers of many religions other than the Christian faith and worship, some of these do not even believe in any deity whether monotheistic or polytheistic. Obeying GOD in teaching the keeping (Matthew 5:19; 7:21 – 25) of GOD's commandments (John 14:15; 15:10; 1 Corinthians 7:19; 1 John 2:3 - 4; 5:2 - 3; Revelation 14:12) together with fully without varying, to keep, perform and to continually to honor the New Covenant commemoration is that which is definitive of whether a person is a faithful disciple of JESUS CHRIST.

Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
Matthew 5:19

Circumcision is nothing and uncircumcision is nothing, but keeping the commandments of God is what matters.
1 Corinthians 7:19

For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome.
1 John 5:3

And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
Revelation 12:17

The Sardis Era. [sar]

“And to the angel of the church in Sardis write,
‘These things says He who has the seven Spirits of God and the seven stars: “I know your works, that you have a name that you are alive, but you are dead. Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die, for I have not found your works perfect before God.

The Thyatira era ended with the schism between those who hung on and those who went apostate to establish the Seventh Day Adventist Church. Thus the Sardis era began with a loose union of those from the last era who had hung on to the truth handled down. The attacked on the message of the Gospel by Satan the Devil through his agents had left a Church of GOD that was almost dead, being alive only in name. The Church of GOD had stopped emphasizing on preaching the Gospel message of the coming Kingdom of GOD (Luke 16:16; 2 Revelation 2:5, 3:1). The state of the Church of GOD at the beginning of the Sardis era was the same as that at the end (Revelation 2:4 – 5) of Ephesus era not long after Jerusalem fell to the Roman army after the last of LORD JESUS’ handpicked Apostle, the Apostle John died of old age.

Remember therefore how you have received and heard; hold fast and repent. Therefore if you will not watch, I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know what hour I will come upon you. You have a few names even in Sardis who have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with Me in white, for they are worthy. 

Only a few names from this fifth leg or era, will be accounted worthy to attain to the Glory of the Kingdom at JESUS’ return. These were mostly all those who would follow a leader (inclusive) that GOD had raised up to start the Philadelphia era. Several decades after GOD began the Philadelphia work, the entire Sardis era, all the membership of that loose union of disbelievers chose to corrupt themselves embracing many of the doctrines of the Christmas religion and other pagan practices.

While many would continued to hang on to their name (of Church of GOD), these so called remnants amalgamation of so called believers (consolidated under one loose association) which would retain some the original beliefs that the Sardis era started with, but these retained main doctrines are actually from the Thyatira era, these remnants then are not really (Matthew 7:16, 20) of the Sardis era even as they have taken on the name of the Church of the Sardis era. Outwardly this so called Sardis remnants amalgamation have the appearance of contriteness and righteousness (i.e. in pretense sincerity of faith, a put up a front of obeying GOD, keeping the Ten Commandments and the New Covenant) but inwardly they are just wickedly self expedient, led also by the same ego supergorging lust in deliberately choosing to be stupid so as to able to reject clear Scriptural truths, refusing to repent like all the rest of the Elect of the last leg of the Church's journey. Essentially they are not an amalgamation of the Elect of GOD but an iteration of the Seventh Day Adventist, an Antichrist and a harlot union, a front set up by Satan the Devil to lead the Elect to contaminate and consequently to break their Covenant with GOD. To understand how this evil amalgamation of Harlots that have taken the name of the Church of the Sardis era is actually a new guise of the Christmas religion structured to deceive the Elect spewed out by GOD (Revelation 3:16) and all those being called in these last days by GOD, please read the post, ‘Why Create Life Using The Process Of Evolution’ under the section ‘Christianity Know The Basics’ in another blog of this work.

There is no longer a Church of the GOD of the Sardis era because the era had ended. This just as there are no Church of GOD of all the previous era only the one current to the contemporary period. An era is a period in time so each era (period) ended soon after a new era or period starts. Technically an era or period is a subdivision of an age or eon. The Apostolic era which started when JESUS ascended to (the third) Heaven, ended when the last of the twelve Apostle died. The Ephesus era ended (or was terminated) when JESUS CHRIST removed their ‘lampstand from its place’ (Revelation 2:5) starting the Smyrna era from a small handful who repented from refusing ‘to do the first work’ the commission JESUS CHRIST commanded throughout (Mark 15:16; John 21:15 – 17) to the Church of GOD which is to proclaim the message of the Kingdom of GOD (including baptizing all who believed and feeding the Elect aka the sheep or flock).

From the latter half of the Church of GOD in Philadelphia through to the end of the first administration of the Church of GOD in Laodicea and beyond, there would be many so called break offs from the dead Sardis era who would set up iterations of the Church of GOD of the so called Sardis period church (i.e. many adopting the name of that era). Even as they claimed their origins to the Sardis period their doctrinal foundations (and therefore they real rooted origins) were mostly from that of the Philadelphia era, plus additionally one of the main dogma of the Church of GOD in Laodicea albeit all with twists and spins added to them.

This is exactly as all those who were spewed out (Revelation 3:16when the first administration of Laodicea era Church of GOD ended on the death of the first Messenger, almost all them, they all have as their foundation doctrines (i.e. defining doctrinal angles seeded from) those of the Philadelphia era (with twists and spins added) plus additionally one central doctrine invented by the second Messenger of the Laodicea era.

The Philadelphia Era. [phd]

“And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write, 
‘These things says He who is holy, He who is true, “He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens”: “I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name.

When the Sardis era refused to preach the Gospel of the Kingdom, GOD raised up the Philadelphia era in a small work that started out with just a little understanding (i.e. very little Scriptural strength or understanding and almost zero grasp on the mercy and saving grace of GOD) but a lot of faith; the faith that obeyed GOD. And because of this simple faith of obedience, for the first very time since when John the Baptist began his ministry testifying to the message of the coming Kingdom of Heaven (Matthew 3:1), the message of the Gospel was taken to a truly worldwide audience by the Church of GOD. It was in this era that GOD fully restored the ‘first work’ (the preaching of the Gospel of the Kingdom of GOD) and ‘the first love’ (the performing and keeping of the Ten Commandments of Love) to HIS one Church that had began to be lost towards the end of the Ephesus era.

See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it;

The Philadelphia era saw the Church of GOD at its highest point in both scope of work and over all material well being. Even as the Philadelphia era was greatly maligned by the disciples of the Antichrist yet at no point in the entire journey of the Church of GOD through the centuries from the Apostolic days was the Church given more freedom to preached the Gospel message. And in tandem with the global scale and reached of the work, the Church and the membership particularly those in leadership also enjoyed great prosperity. But this prosperity together with being free from brutal persecution would have a massive negative side as would be fully revealed in the next era, the Laodicean era.

Indeed I will make those of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews and are not, but lie—indeed I will make them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you.

At no other time after the Church of GOD came out from her hidden years were the Church of GOD more maligned by agents of the Antichrist than during this era. This was aggravated by the fact that this period of world history saw quite a number of doomsday death cults which served to frighten sincere truth seeker from embracing the Gospel message preached by the Church of GOD and jaded the world to the warning message of the impending end of this age. The work of doomsday death cults aided in no small way as a tool for the agents of Satan the Devil to maligned the Church of GOD and the message of the Gospel

Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown.

This era also saw agents of Satan the Devil in the Church of GOD leading many of the Elect from the Church to break away from the main body to set up their own Churches of Gods leading many of the Elect who chose to follow after men to worship them and to embrace apostasy. During the Laodicea period a similar lust to worship men would also see the vast majority of the Elect scattered into over a hundred congregational entities of so called Churches of Gods, of men who had made themselves into gods breaking the first three of the Ten Commandments and consequently the First Great Commandment. That is the number one reason almost all these Elect, most of whom would not repent, will fall into the hands of those who hate them in the TribulationThese Elect were all those who were spewed out (Revelation 3:16) of the first administration of the Laodicea era when the first Messenger of the Church of GOD in Laodicea died because he refused to repent of his sins. His death brought that first administration of the Church of GOD in Laodicea to an end as another Messenger (the second) that GOD had begun to raised up a few years back took over that role when GOD spewed out all the Elect (Revelation 3:16) concurrently to letting the Son of Perdition turned that entire organizational entity (all those who chose to remain) apostate (2 Thessalonians 2:3).

Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.

Thishour of trialwhich ‘shall come upon the whole world followed from very soon after the end of the Philadelphia era and encompassed almost the entire Laodicea era of the Church of GOD, except for the first formative year. This hour of trial started with the testing of the Church of GOD in the Laodicea era, where the love and faithfulness of the Elect of GOD were tested by first the eroding of the love for the ‘first work’ and ‘first love’ (which GOD had fully restored at the beginning of the Philadelphia stretch) by the Messenger who succeeded the one from the Philadelphia era in conjunction with the beginning rise and the revealing and rise of the Son of Perdition (2 Thessalonians 2:3 – 12). These tests fully, completely and thoroughly exposed the lack of love, faithfulness and commitment to GOD by the vast majority (literally every single member and leader among the Elect) of those who were converted in the Philadelphia era (Ezekiel 33:30 – 33). This hour is also the last hour of the Genesis chapter 1 creation's time frame that GOD had allocated for this Age Of Man. The Age of Man which began with the creation of Adam and Eve, will end when JESUS CHRIST returns to restore GOD's government and Kingdom to the nation of Israel removing Satan the Devil's sway and rule over this planet earth (Revelation 20:1  3).

The Last Era Before the End of the Age of Man – The Laodicean.

The bulk of those who were in the beginnings (under the first Messenger) of the Laodicea era were nearly all from the remnants of the Philadelphia era. This has always been the case with the transition of the Church of GOD from one era to the next. While most commonly the remaining relatively few faithful of the previous era would be the start for the next era however the Laodicean era Church was started very differently.

The beginning of the Laodicean era Church was significantly different from all the era previous to it, with almost all of those from the previous Philadelphia era, transitioning into the Church of GOD in Laodicea. However the same consistency of the remaining few faithful of the previous era beginning the next era would soon be still expressed, realized and fulfilled. Right at the very nascent years of the Laodicea era Church very soon after the beginning period of office of the first Messenger of this era, GOD had already begun raising up a new Messenger (the second Messenger) to the Church of GOD in Laodicea. This GOD did knowing full well (as indeed GOD is all knowing) that even during the tenure of the Messenger to the Church of GOD in Philadelphia, nearly all the Elect were neither fervent and zealous, nor really faithful and sincere in their so called love for GOD. They were all basically pretending, all putting up a facade, a false insincere face of loving GOD and loving one another. That was why the hour of trial or testing followed almost immediately from the death of the Messenger to the Philadelphia era Church which also ended the Philadelphia era.

The end of each era of the seven periods of GOD's Church in her journey starting from the Apostolic age (the Ephesus era) to the End of the Age (the Laodicea era) has always been marked either by the dead of the last Messenger of the era (as in the case of the Smyrna, Thyatira and Philadelphia eras), or of the last Messenger either refusing to response to correction (as was the case in the Sardis era and Ephesus era) or becoming apostate (such as was the case of the Pergamos era). In some of these periods or eras, there would be several Messengers, each succeeding the one before. But in some eras there would be only one Messenger. The Ephesus era had at least three Messengers, but in all probably more. The first Messenger (aka Angel, a man assigned as the human head or leader the Church) was the Apostle Peter and the second was the Apostle John who succeeded the Apostle Peter after his martyrdom. The Ephesus era ended when the last Messenger of the era would not continue the work of preaching the Gospel message (i.e. ‘the first work’). The Smyrna era would have begun to be raised up by GOD either from one of the congregations or some of the members of the Church of GOD in Ephesus. This would have happened sometime not long before the Ephesus era officially ended when the last Messenger refused to continue doing the ‘first work. But only after the Ephesus era had ended would the Smyrna era officially take on (i.e. inherit) the title role and official name as the Church of GOD. This is the same as at any one time there is only one Messenger, the human leader to the Church, there have never been two Messengers holding office at the same time. So there can only be one Church of GOD at anyall period of time. Neither the FATHER GOD nor LORD JESUS is ever or can ever be divided (from the Spiritual context). This is even when JESUS was fully a flesh and blood SON of man. The same holds true with the Church of GOD, at no time throughout the journey of the Church of GOD from its founding in 30 C.E. on the day of the Feast of Firstfruits through and beyond the end of the Age of Man, there will only be one undivided Church of GOD.

In all previous periods (i.e. eras) up to the Thyatira era this consistency of the few remaining faithful of the last era becoming the next era, were not easily evident as hardly any records survived through those periods because of the severe persecution of the Church of GOD by first the pagan Jews followed by the pagan Roman Empire and lastly by the Great Harlot through her rule over the so called Holy Roman Empire and Europe during the Dark Ages and well into most of the years of the Renaissance. But from the Sardis period forward, freedom from murderous persecution and a global social order that would allow greater freedom to the practices of religion and freedom of expression in many nations allowed the Church of GOD to both publicly practice their faith and preach the message of the Gospel relatively free from suppression, fairly extensive documents have since been maintained about the activities of the Church of GOD. With the advent of the internet much of these records have since been publicly published, fully and easily found by anyone directly searching for them.

The nascent Church of GOD in Laodicea under her first Messenger would very soon come to an end with GOD spewing out all the Elect (Revelation 3:16) from that globe spanning organization entity. This event was officially marked by the taking the life of the first Messenger because he refused to repent from ruling against GOD's Sabbath and Holy Commandments of Love. The entire congregation then were spewed out (Revelation 3:16) either scattered into numerous congregations following after men who have set themselves up to be the proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives of GOD, or continued on with the Son of Perdition (2 Thessalonians 2:3 – 12) to embraced the doctrines of the Christmas religion either additionally or exclusively.

So even as the Church of GOD in Laodicea started out with almost all the membership from the Church of GOD in Philadelphia, before a decade was over, the Church of GOD in Laodicea officially came under the second Messenger after the death of the first. The second administration under the second Messenger was essentially started from just a very small remnants of those who were originally from the previous era. They parted from the first administration of the first Messenger several years before GOD spewed out all those who were in the first administration. That first administration officially ending with the death of the first Messenger who had refused to repent rejecting the correction sent by GOD through HIS servant, the author of this work. The death of the first Messenger effectively ended that globe spanning congregation as being of GOD, as being GOD's one Church. Within a few years of GOD spewing out all the Elect (Revelation 3:16), that globe spanning congregation became apostate under the directive of the Son of Perdition (2 Thessalonians 2:3).

The increased affluence of the Church of GOD and relative safety in which the Church and the membership were able to practice their faith beginning with the end of the Pergamos era was to have a severe negative downside. This severe negative downside began to become manifest in the middle Philadelphia period such that by the end of the Philadelphia era it had fully corrupted nearly all of the Elect in the Church of GOD. A significant majority from the previous Philadelphia era have been revealed to be lukewarm in their faithfulness to GOD, swiftly selling out their faith and commitment to their Covenant with GOD to be obedience to HIM and to keep of HIS commandments and to do HIS will and work of preaching the Gospel message. Likewise the bulk of those who were in the ministry also sold out their office and future heritage and glory for a ‘morsel of food’ (i.e. literally earning a livelihood), more interested in securing their livelihood than in keeping and honoring their Covenant with GOD.

As for the rest of the leaders (all those came out from that first administration under the first Messenger, as that organization entity begins it journey into apostasy, to set up their own churches of gods) they were all totally full of themselves (egocentric mega ego maniacs), glorifying in self righteousness to apportion for themselves positions as authorities totally determined on ruling rather than be ruled by GOD. That was in essence the literally meaning of the term Laodicea of the original Greek text which is that of men making or forming their own judgment advancing themselves as the supreme proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives of knowledge and enlightenment in order to rule over all. The Greek term ‘Laodikeus’ inferred a presumptuousness of self sufficiency and a perceived superiority over others, and by extension, of arrogant self righteousness. These are expressed in seeking (from the presumptuousness of superiority and of being supreme) to rule over others by virtue of one's own personal authority. Many elders have set themselves up to be ultimate rulers and authorities over the Flock as their absolute right because they are these proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives of GOD. Further some are also defiling and corrupting the Everlasting Covenant by having the unconverted non Christians partake of it. Read also further discussion of this in era in The Church of GOD Today.

“I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot.

While the Sardis era had a name (that is the organization still carried the name of GOD as of 2008 C.E.) that they were alive but in reality their faith was faltering and near to death when that era began, the Laodicea era Church at the beginning of her era under the first Messenger, were lackluster in their zeal for the work of proclaiming message of the Gospel, as well as lukewarm (as opposed to being zealous and fervent) in keeping and performing the Commandments of Love. Most of them were more preoccupied with advancing themselves in this temporary life pursuing after wealth, comfort and especially seeking self glory manifested very clearly in all those who were in the leadership and ministry. This though not surprising as this present generation are awash with great material abundance and all kinds of distraction of the senses, nonetheless this is not acceptable to GOD WHO then ended that first administrator taking the life of the first Messenger after he refused to repent in rejecting GOD's correction (sent through this author), for teaching and commanding the breaking of the Sabbath as well as the Ten Commandments.

Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world.
1 John 2:15  – 16

“No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.
Matthew 6:24

The test of faith comes in many different forms and not just in suffering and hardship but also in comfort and prosperity. Throughout all of the Church periods in her journey through the centuries, Satan the Devil employed every means in varying degree, as he has been able. There has been the persecution that put the fear of incarceration, torture and a horrible death into the Elect. Then there has been deception targeting the weakness of the flesh in pride (i.e. ego gorging lust) and other lust (covetousness). In many of the Church periods especially those periods before coming out from the hidden years, persecution was the most prevalent trial, but after that increasingly with the vicious direct persecution ebbing, the members of GOD’s Elect began facing another kind of trial, the trials of complacency in comfort and prosperity. And this was especially the case during both the Philadelphia and Laodicea era.

So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.

For those who have been members in the Church of GOD through this last two periods of the Church's journey they would (or should anyway) know that this was fulfilled during the ‘great falling away of 1995 C.E. (2 Thessalonians 2:3 – 4). LORD JESUS CHRIST simultaneously cast off (vomit out) all the Elect of that first administration as GOD ended the life of that first Messenger (Ezekiel 3:17,19; 33:7, 9) and consequently let the Son of Perdition took over that globe spanning organization (which ceased to be GOD's Church at the death of the Messenger, the first Messenger to this last era, the Laodicea era) leading all those who remained, all who stayed back in that organization into apostasy to fully embrace the doctrines, the Nicene Creed, of the Great Harlot of the Christmas religion. But unfortunately most of them had allowed themselves to be blinded to the truth as the next verse (Revelation 3:17) unmistakably recorded, if they would only believe what was written in the Christian Holy Scriptures. Which is precisely where the whole of professed Christianity, both true and fake, are failing, failing to believe the records of the Holy Christian Scriptures because they do not want to, they prefer to give free rein to their lusts, their ego supergorging lust.

Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness?
Roman 6:16

When GOD (through the LORD JESUS) spewed out all the Elect (Revelation 3:16) of the first administration of the Church of GOD in Laodicea while also ending the life of the first Messenger because he refused to be corrected, refusing to repent from his directing the nullification and invalidation of the seventh day Sabbath and the Holy Commandments of GOD, all the Elect in that globe spanning congregation which had ceased to be the Church of GOD (Revelation 3:16), basically went one of two main ways. The greater majority went apostate embracing the Son of Perdition as their God, while most the rest that were spewed (vomited) out, went searching for other gods (i.e. others who set themselves up as leaders, apportioning the name of GOD to advance themselves thus sinning against GOD, transgressing the first great commandment) to worship. Among the latter some joined with the second administration of the Church of GOD in Laodicea which GOD had stared raising in the very first few years of the Laodicea era.

Many (both those who were elders and leaders and also those who self appoint) also went and set up their own churches of gods. Needless to be mentioned some also went back to their old ways before their conversions.

Of those who went and established their own churches of gods, many to most, all claimed to worship (i.e. to be obeying) the first and only Messenger of the Philadelphia era (whose death ended that era and started the next era the Laodicea). They (all those who use the name of the Messenger of the previous era) have been doing so for one purpose only, to convey the message that they are the so called faithful Philadelphia remnants, that they are faithfully holding on to all the truth and doctrines of that Messenger. Unfortunately, the so called truth that they claimed to hold on to and obey is not from GOD but from man. A man who had appointed himself to be the Elijah fulfillment (without understanding what is the main work of this fulfillment) as well as appointed himself to be an Apostle (without understanding that for this position or title, the LORD JESUS only appointed twelve excluding one who was disqualified). But not just that, this man (a Messenger no doubt) also over ruled both LORD JESUS and GOD to change work of the Church of GOD from preaching the Gospel message of repentance to that of fulfilling Matthew 24 verse 14.

Let me reiterate, no creature personage whether Angelic Spirit or man, no matter no great they are, can change or alter (add to or take away from) by even a dash, comma, period or any punctuation mark (i.e. ‘by one jot or one tittle’), what GOD andor LORD JESUS had instituted or ordained (Matthew 5:17 – 20) whether be these the New Covenant, The Royal Law and Holy Commandments, judgment and statutes, the work of the Church of proclaiming the message of the Gospel, or any of the instruction, exhortation and testimony of GOD. Anyone one who does so or seek to do so, would have broken the First Great Commandment and the first three of the Ten Commandments, they would have made and set themselves up to show to themselves and to all and sundry that they are indeed greater and supreme over GOD in every way, that they can anytime at their own whims and fancies over rule GOD. Explicit blasphemers, all of them!

If GOD have been not and is not merciful (Isaiah 59:16), all (every single member of mankind) will with certainty perish into perdition for all the evil that they have done and have poured forth from the banalities of their inner bowels (Psalm 53:2 – 3), from their unbridled ego supergorging lust.
You can read a more detailed discussion on the two major and main Messengers to GOD's Church in these very last days of the Age of Man in the chapter ‘The Elect’ of ‘Bible 101 – The Holy Bible Expounded’. These two were the main Messengers to GOD's Church of the Philadelphia era and Laodicea era respectively. Read how these two men out of the universal sin of ego supergorging lusts, introduced and invented all manner of lies and evil doctrines in order to advance and elevate themselves (i.e. their ego image) and their own self righteous agenda instead of seeking to do the will and work of GOD which has always been to sincerely, meekly, humbly, truthfully preach the message of the Gospel of the faith that leads to the repentance required to receive the grace given through the New Covenant in the cleansing BLOOD of ‘the LAMB of GOD who takes away the sin of the world’.
Speaking of the time of HIS coming (Second Advent) JESUS CHRIST put a pointed question to HIS Apostles and disciples during HIS ministry while a SON of man:

..... Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?”
Luke 18:8

Just as were among the Jewish religious authorities during the days of the Gospel records, so it is today in the Church of GOD. Relative safety and prosperity have caused the faith of many to take a second place to the pursuit of livelihood, material abundance and self advancement.

and the cares of this world, the deceitfulness of riches, and the desires for other things entering in choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful.
Mark 4:19

And He said to them, “Take heed and beware of covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of the things he possesses.”
Luke 12:15

Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked

The LORD JESUS CHRIST in no uncertain terms warned HIS Elect, particularly the Messenger and all the leaders, in this last period of GOD's Church's journey. But none believed, all deliberately pretending stupidity so as to be able to say that HE is not talking to them or about them. Every single one of them is saying that LORD JESUS is referring to the other congregations of GOD's people but not them, never ever them because they are the very so faithful remnants of the Philadelphia era. Every single leader who has appointed himself to be the head of GOD's people, who has appointed himself as the proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives of GOD, all made the same claim that the congregation of GOD's people that he is leading is the epitome of love, righteousness and faithfulness, the Philadelphian standard, the noble Bereans, the sons of Zadok, the truth loving. What each and every single leader is saying is that he is the best of best and everyone else that is not subservient to him or in agreement with him is just plain lukewarm, self righteous and sinning. ‘It is the others that are lukewarm and self righteous; the others are the lukewarm andor self righteous Laodiceans that JESUS CHRIST is rebuking and commanding to repent today.’ That is just how blinded they have all become, puffed up by their brazen arrogant conceit parading around in self glorification, they have totally blinded themselves in willful self delusion, everyall of them deliberately pretending stupidity so that they can indulge to the maximum the ego supergorging lust of self glorification, the ego supergorging lust to superlative their ego image.

I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.

Every single one of them plainly refused to see that the LORD JESUS has absolutely no good words, zero good words for all of the leaders in this last era. Not a single word. Everyone is commanded to repent from fixing their eyes on how great and righteous they are and to start to look to and seek the righteousness that is from GOD.

Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.

JESUS CHRIST's return is eminent. HE is right at the door. Whose eyes have seen it and whose ears have heard? Whose hearts have not been given to carousing in ego supergorging lust, let him hear and repent.

For behold, the day is coming,
Burning like an oven, 
And all the proud, yes, all who do wickedly will be stubble. 
And the day which is coming shall burn them up,” 
Says the LORD of hosts, 
“That will leave them neither root nor branch. 
But to you who fear My name 
The Sun of Righteousness shall arise 
With healing in His wings; 
And you shall go out 
And grow fat like stall-fed calves. 
You shall trample the wicked, 
For they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet 
On the day that I do this, 
Says the LORD of hosts.

Malachi 4:1 - 3

Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet
Before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD.
And he will turn
The hearts 
{Heart} of the fathers {FATHER} to the children,
And the hearts of the children to their fathers
Lest I come and strike the earth with a curse

Malachi 4:5 - 6

The Laodicea Church of GOD, the last stretch in the journey of the Church of GOD would see nearly all the Elect of GOD (all those inside the Church as well as all outside no matter what names they apportioned for themselves), are characterized  and defined by:

1. Revelation 3:15 – 16
I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.

Firstly by, a general lukewarm attitude towards GOD's truth and towards doing GOD's will and work, they all put on a show of zeal and brotherly (Philadelphia) love. But it is all a show, a front of stirred up (done in pretense) fake love for one another and for GOD. They are all mainly self focused and self expedient. This was exposed by the hour of trial when in the very first instance of that hour, almost all of them very soon began to completely give themselves over to ego gorging lust. Ego gorging lust is the number one lust; the first lust in all intelligent freewill creature personages. That was why the Elect in the Church of GOD (all under the first Messenger) all were spewed out! (This was fulfilled in 1995 C.E.)

2. Revelation 3:17 – 19
Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked— I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent. 

Secondly by, a self righteousness seeded from ego gorging lust. In one of my many discussions I have asserted that the only valid reason intelligent personages would choose to believe lies is because they want to, because they lusted to. And this too has fully convicted nearly all the Elect of GOD today, both the lay members as well as all of the leaders. They have all totally and willing embraced lies; willfully chose to believe brazen, obvious and outright lies so that they might be able to ego supergorge to insane stupidity. They were all commanded to repent. But has anyone yet repented? No, not even a single one have repented, yet (as of March 2015 C.E.)! But thankfully some (Malachi 3:16 – 18) soon will (this was prophesied in the Christian Holy Scriptures, wait for it — this would be tracked and updated in the post, ‘A Status Update 2014’).

A Prophet Of GOD Must Be Able To Perform Miracles? [mrc]

There is this misconception that being a true Prophet of GOD means that you must be able to perform miracles or must be able to perform or have performed at the very least some of the miracles that JESUS CHRIST did during HIS three and a half year ministry as a SON of man testifying to the Gospel of the Kingdom. What a person with such views refused to see and understand was that John the Baptist, the greatest of man ever born of a woman (Matthew 11:11), did not perform a single miracle in his entire lifetime as a Prophet (Matthew 11:9 - 10) of GOD. John the Baptist who was sent before the CHRIST, was revealed to be the Elijah Type witness (Matthew 11:12 – 14; Malachi 3:1; 4:5 – 6; Luke 1:17) to JESUS CHRIST’s First Advent. If you were to read through the entire records of the Christian Holy Scriptures you would find those Prophets and men of GOD who performed miracles were the few not the many. Powerful men of faith who were particularly close to GOD’s own heart like Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Samuel, King David, Isaiah, Jeremiah and Daniel were among those who did not perform a single outstanding miracle in their entire life. The majority of the Prophets and Judges of GOD including the two most iconic man of the Scriptures, the Father of the Faithful, Abraham (Genesis 20:7), as well as a man after GOD’s own heart, King David (Acts 2:29 – 30), never performed a single outright miracle throughout their lives.

Technically if we have not become stupid from insane lust, we would (or should anyway) know that at the most basic, a miracle is something that one personage is able to do which another personage cannot conceivably do from the perspective of the personage existential reality. An extension of that most basic is of something one personage can do which another personage cannot understand (i.e. figure out from all he knows as a part of his reality how the other personage was able to do such) how it can be done. A further extension of that would be if one personage cannot at all perceive of the other personage doing something except to perceive it happening or having happened. From this we would (or should anyway) know that GOD as the ultimate power over all can perform any and all things that none other and all others even with their combined power and resources would be able ever to do or imagine of being able to do. That would mean that anyall Angel personages (including demons, the Angel personages who have fully embraced evil) can do things that from a human perspective and from the context of the limitation to the physical universe would be so called, would appeared to be miraculous.

But even among fellow mankind, with from slide of hand tricks to elaborately planned and executed acts of so called magic, some members of mankind have been tricking their peers for centuries to this very day. Only today with better understand among the more educated and enlightened, we have understood that this are basically tricks of the hands and tricks to our severely limited perceptive abilities, that there are nothing magical or miraculous about them. This is not to say that even to this day and age, many members of mankind (even multiple millions) have continued to be tricked into believing all manners of so called magical powers and all manner of occurrences of so called miracles.

A natural question (and also numerous such questions of this nature or context) would be that if there are trillions upon trillions of Angel personages with multiple billions of them assigned on earth under the lead of the arch Angel who has since become Satan the Devil, why then has mankind not being see and experiencing miracles from small localized ones to humongous ones everywhere and frequently? For the answer whether you think you know it or not, please read the post ‘Why Create Life Through The Process Of Evolution’ under the heading title ‘The Angelic Spirit Realm – Know The Basics’ of the blog ‘Bible 101 – The Holy Bible Expounded’.

Now if only you could believe the words of JESUS CHRIST, the things HE spoke of and what HE personally taught, you would know miracle performances are not absolute proof that a person is actually a Prophet of GOD. In warning HIS disciples of the condition of the world (signs of the times) directly leading to the end of this age JESUS warned them of many false prophets and false Messiahs (i.e. Christs) who would be performing powerful signs and wonders that had it been possible even the very Elect would have been deceived.

For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.
Matthew 24:24

In the book of Acts there was just such a record of a man who had practiced sorcery and was considered by many in Samaria as the ‘great power of God.’ Notice also the Holy Christian Scriptures recorded that the people ‘from the least to the greatest heeded him. Everyone believing that he was the great power of God.

But there was a certain man called Simon, who previously practiced sorcery in the city and astonished the people of Samaria, claiming that he was someone great, to whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, “This man is the great power of God.” And they heeded him because he had astonished them with his sorceries for a long time. 
Acts 8: 9  – 11

The Christian Holy Scriptures clearly recorded that even a man who is a powerful Prophet of GOD can be unfaithful to GOD. Balaam the son of Beor was just such a prophet (Numbers 22:9 – 13, 18, 31 – 34; 2 Peter 2:15 – 16). Balaam was a famed prophet (or Seer) of GOD in the land of the Midianites and Moabites during the time of Moses. But the heart of this man of GOD was not set on being faithful to his GOD but on advancing his own life (not too different from almost all of the rulers and leaders of GOD's Elect of today). Balaam greedily lusted after the treasures promised by Balak the son of Zippor, the king of the Moabites. When GOD refused to allow him to curse the Israelite, he used his knowledge of the unchanging GOD to teach Balak the king of the Moabites, how he could seduce the Israelite to sin against GOD so that evil would befall them. Balaam was a man called by GOD but he despised his office and calling, preferring to lust after the material wealth of this world. Given the office of a Prophet he used it not to serve GOD but to serve himself. Needless to say he lost his forever future in the Kingdom of GOD just like King Saul, Judas Iscariot, Mrs. Ellen G White and the Son of Perdition (including all those who were complicit with him in his evil work). The Son of Perdition (aka The man of sin and The Antichrist) was the man who took over the Church of GOD in Laodicea as GOD began to spew out all the Elect (Revelation 3:16) from that Church organizational entity. The Son of Perdition (2 Thessalonians 2:3–4, 8–12; 1 John 2:18) took over from the first Messenger (and first administration) of the Church of GOD in Laodicea and turned all the Elect who remained behind to apostasy fulfilling the Falling Away (or Apostasy) as was prophesied by the Apostle Paul (2 Thessalonians 2:3 – 4) and the Apostle John (1 John 2:18). The term ‘Son of Perdition’ was only used in the Christian Holy Scriptures to refer to two specific persons one of whom was Judas Iscariot and the other the person of The Antichrist, the one who would take over the Church of GOD in Laodicea turning all the Elect in that organization apostate, embracing the doctrines of the Great Harlot and her harlot daughters, the Nicene Creed aka the Covenant of Antichrists.

Neither is sincerity definitive that a person is a Prophet of GOD.

Please say you are my sister, that it may be well with me for your sake, and that I may live because of you.
Genesis 12:13

That was what Abram asked his wife Sarai to do, when they went to sojourn in Egypt because of the famine that was in the land of Canaan. And despite being rebuked by Pharaoh for this (Genesis 12:18 - 20), he continued on with this wicked deception.

And Abraham journeyed from there to the South, and dwelt between Kadesh and Shur, and stayed in Gerar. Now Abraham said of Sarah his wife, “She is my sister.” And Abimelech king of Gerar sent and took Sarah.
Genesis 20:1 – 2

How sincerely did Abraham act when he asked his wife to lie for him? And how sincere was Abraham when he told the men of Gerar that Sarah was his sister? He wasn’t even sincere to himself when later confronted, he instead of apologizing chose to justify his acting deceitfully (Genesis 20:11 – 12).

Some may seek to justify Abraham’s insincerity by saying that he has a valid reason to ask his wife to lie, that it was not really something wicked to lie to preempt from being killed by those who are wicked.

Now I ask you, is it not wickedness that when you caused harm and distress to those who have neither harm nor dealt deceitfully with you? Did not this act of Abraham caused harm to both Pharaoh and Abimelech in whose land Abraham and his family were living? Is that how a guest should repay the hospitality of his hosts?

Can you having taken shelter in a stranger's house from danger then thinking to yourself (without any valid cause or reason, except of your own irrational fear of being murdered) that this stranger is an evil person and then, on just that suspicion (and totally irrational fears), killed him to preempt him killing you?

And Pharaoh called Abram and said, “What is this you have done to me? Why did you not tell me that she was your wife? Why did you say, ‘She is my sister’? I might have taken her as my wife. Now therefore, here is your wife; take her and go your way.” So Pharaoh commanded his men concerning him; and they sent him away, with his wife and all that he had.
Genesis 12:18 – 20

But God came to Abimelech in a dream by night, and said to him, “Indeed you are a dead man because of the woman whom you have taken, for she is a man’s wife.” 
But Abimelech had not come near her; and he said, “Lord, will You slay a righteous nation also? Did he not say to me, ‘She is my sister’? And she, even she herself said, ‘He is my brother.’ In the integrity of my heart and innocence of my hands I have done this.” 
Genesis 20:3 – 5

Read what was recorded in the Christian Holy Scriptures how Abraham justified his deceitful actions.

And Abraham said, “Because I thought, surely the fear of God is not in this place; and they will kill me on account of my wife. But indeed she is truly my sister. She is the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother; and she became my wife.
Genesis 20:11 – 12

Again I ask you, if even the “wicked” showed greater integrity than you, how deceitful have you become when instead of repenting and seeking forgiveness from those you have wronged you instead choose to justify your actions? GOD even gently corrected him twice over this deceit. Needless to say there were many other attributes of Abraham that were praise worthy and righteous, aside from the fact that GOD was testing Abraham to build in him the faith necessary to please GOD. So GOD covered (forgive and pass over) this sin (Psalm 32:1 – 2; 85:2; Romans 4:7; Ephesians 1:7; 1 Peter 4:8). This is exactly what the Christian Holy Scriptures meant where it was recorded that it is by faith we are justified not by works, that ‘by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified’.
More is discussed on faith, law, grace in the latter part of this post, in law and grace and the doctrine of Sovereign Grace.

This does not mean that we can continue on to break GOD's laws and commandments with impunity. Nor does it mean that we can disregard and discard the Royal Law and Holy Commandments of GOD as not important, as irrelevant to the Christian's calling.

Consider a scenario where a man had committed robbery, rape and murder, was caught and sentenced to death but was pardoned and released in a general amnesty by the reigning sovereign. Can the pardoned and released man then declared that since he had been pardoned, therefore he no longer needed to obey any of the laws of the country; that henceforth he can disregard and break any and all the laws of the country; that henceforth he can rob, rape and murder all he wants? Therefore all those who had and who have, declared that the Ten Commandments and the ordained Feasts plus all the other statutes and laws of the Old Testament period other than the ritualistic works relating to the Temple service and worship, as no longer applicable, as no longer relevant and need no longer be honored, are indeed as the very robber, rapist and murderer of this scenario. They shall face the Judgment and be required to give account exactly as such a man of this scenario.

Abraham honored and kept all of GOD's laws and commandments. Abraham obeyed GOD's voice.

And I will make your descendants multiply as the stars of heaven; I will give to your descendants all these lands; and in your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed; because Abraham obeyed My voice and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes, and My laws
Genesis 26:4 – 5

Even though the Christian Holy Scriptures did not explicitly record whether Abraham ever did repent of this sin yet it could be safely inferred that in all likelihood he never did, at least not until his dying days. This was because his son Isaac continued on with this deceitful deception, lying outright with no twists whatsoever (Genesis 26:6 – 7).

A natural question at this time would be: if there is no basic difference between the unconverted sinners and the faithful disciples of JESUS CHRIST, how can GOD still be righteous and just to condemn sinners while justifying HIS Elect?

Firstly it is not true to say that there is no basic difference. There are indeed several key differences between the Saints of GOD, sinners and the unrepentant sinners. Secondly, the issues of evil (which is the definitive term for sin), faith and grace needed to be understood. Of this the number one first thing to know is that all are saved by faith through the SOVEREIGN Grace of GOD, that none are saved by the law because all have been convicted for breaking the law.

The law is the mechanism to convict law breakers, not the vehicle to justify sinners. Keeping the law is compulsory, mandatory and a must requirement, it is the responsibility of all abiding citizens of a country to keeps and uphold its law and therefore of all Christian to keep, abide by, honor and up hold the law of GOD, the Royal Laws and Holy Commandments of Love (Matthew 22:36 – 40). But keeping the law does not and cannot justify anyone who has already broken the law. Breaking the law on the other hand, condemns all who break the law. Since all have broken the law, justification can only come from faith through grace in the redemption effected by the LAMB of GOD who takes away the sin of all, saving all who would believe and obey in repentance. Grace only justify those who repent and do not and will never justify the unrepentant, all those who refused to obey and honor the law.

All those who seek to invalidate, nullify andor abolish the Royal Law and Holy Commandments of GOD are not only just law breakers and criminals but they are the evil enemies of GOD seeking to overrule and invalidate GOD so that they may rule absolutely by just their own authority, so they can rule as gods.
More is discussed on faith, law, grace in the latter part of this post, in the doctrine of Sovereign Grace.
Grace does not nullify the law nor makes the law an enmity. Grace and the law are two entirely different but complimentary concepts, two different mechanism GOD uses to express and work out HIS will and purpose. Their only commonality is that they both serve to facilitate GOD's will and purpose for HIS creature personage, mankind, that HIS purpose will stand (i.e. will not fail or come to naught) or will be served (i.e. will be carried out and effected). This is a very simple thing which the ego gorging Apostle Paul tripped and stumbled over due to his evil agenda of preaching against circumcision, to preached against those who would dare to question his supreme authority as the greatest Apostle of LORD JESUS. Of course circumcision was not the only issue the Apostle Paul had, the issue of circumcision was just the pin prick that would fully exposed the ego gorging lust of this self perceived supreme Apostle to the gentiles.
In the various chapters of Bible 101 – The Holy Bible Expounded you can read the full discussions: on grace, sins and the law (‘Grace, Sin And The Commandments of GOD’) and about the brazen shameful ego supergorging lust of the Apostle Paul, revealed in all his epistles (‘The Elect’) for the whole creation to witness. In the same chapter, ‘The Elect’, aside from the ego supergorging lust of the Apostle Paul, you can also read about: the Apostle Peter caving under and to, the intimidation of the Apostle Paul, into preaching grace rather than, and instead of the repentance requirement of the Gospel of the Kingdom; and James the half brother of the LORD JESUS, a deacon and bishop by anointment but seeking to show himself to all that he was also an Apostle; and also the Messengers to the Philadelphia era and Laodicea era of GOD's Church how these two Messengers appointed over the Church of GOD from this same ego supergorging lust, introduced and invented all manner of lies and evil doctrines in order to advance and elevate themselves (i.e. their self image or ego) and setting their own self advancing and self righteous agenda, for the work of the Church of GOD instead of seeking to do the will and work of GOD which is to sincerely, meekly, humbly in truth, preach the message of the Gospel of the faith that leads to the repentance required to receive the grace given through the New Covenant in the cleansing BLOOD of the LAMB of GOD who takes away the sin of the world.

Below is the list of these key differences between the Elect and Saints from the rest of sinning andor the unrepentant mankind.

The Differences (Please click on the links for some of the answers). [diff]

3. Entering into the Covenant, the New Everlasting Covenant with GOD. The true Christians goal is of a life long unwavering commitment to fully honor and to full perform their Covenant with GOD in obeying HIM and to keep (perform and abide by) all HIS commandments, laws, statutes, judgment and teachings (sayings). The Covenant with GOD whether old (and hence superseded and replaced) or new is about accepting GOD as SOVEREIGN OWNER and LORD (MASTER), about being the people (or nation) of GOD, it is about the entry into the FAMILY and Nation of GOD. That was why JESUS when HE came as the MEDIATOR (Hebrews 9:15; 12:24of the New Covenant announced at the start of HIS ministry, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel’ (Mark 1:14 – 15;) and likewise also John the Baptist (Matthew 3:1 – 2;) when he was revealed so as to announce (Matthew 3:3, 11; Mark 1:7 – 8; Luke 3:2 – 4, 16; John 1:6 – 8) the advent of JESUS CHRIST as the MESSENGER of the Covenant (Malachi 3:1).

4. All of mankind are sinners. Every mature adult man and woman. This includes those called by GOD and have entered into the New Covenant with HIM. Maturity is the capacity of the Spirit-mind to know the difference between right and wrong, good and evil. While all mankind have rejected and continued to reject GOD's rule over them, refusing to accept and obey the laws and commandments of GOD, the Saints of GOD acknowledge and continually strive to abide by all of GOD's laws and commandments, sincerely seeking to obey GOD, to submit to and carry out GOD's will and purpose. However not all of the Elect of GOD do this equally, some are sincerely faithful and zealous, others less so, and on the other extreme there are those who are still fully deceitful and rebellious. That is the reason some will attain to everlasting greatness and glory while others to shame in the Kingdom of GOD when the LORD JESUS returns (Daniel 12:2; Galatians 6:7; 1 Corinthians 3:10 – 15). Others still, will end in perdition (Hebrew 10:29; 6:4 - 6).

5. Like many concepts that the Christian Holy Scriptures taught, judgment basically consist of a Type and the Actual. The Type is an indicator (or pointer) to the actual (or final). The type judgment applies to all mankind (both Saints and sinners) as all have in their lives committed wrongs (that is all have sinned) and incurred the death penalty for their sins. This is where the death of JESUS CHRIST as the LAMB of GOD redeemed all mankind from this death penalty. This is the second chance being offered to all mankind in order that they should repent and stop sinning.
Needless to say not all of mankind have accepted this redemption which carries the compulsory pre-requirement of repentance of stopping being rebellious and disobedient (in disregarding GOD and all that GOD commanded). The Elect of GOD are those who have accepted this redemption after it has been offered to them through those who were witnesses to the Gospel message. The unrepentant sinners are those who had rejected the Gospel message preached to them after fully understanding it, knowing full well that it is true. The rebellious sinners are all those who having accepted GOD through the Everlasting Covenant, then reject corrections from GOD and insisting that they are not sinners but are the supremely super righteous who needs no corrections (Luke 18:9 – 12; Revelation 3:17). Whereas the rest of sinning mankind are yet to be offered the choice whether they would accept this redemption with the repentance pre-requirement. This will be offered to all these in the Second Resurrection (Revelation 20:5, 13, 12).
Judgment always begins in the Church of GOD and on the Elect (1 Peter 4:17; James 3:1; 2 Corinthians 5:10). Those called (whether these are the Saints of GOD or the unrepentant wicked) are now in their current lifetime under the process of being judged whereas the rest of sinning mankind are not yet being judged, yet.
The process of judgment is an assessment of worthiness (2 Corinthians 5:10; Luke 20:35; Matthew 10:37through trials and test to prove the true faith and sincere commitment (which are the criteria of the assessmentof those being judged (or assessed) whether they are truly, steadfastly committed to the government of love, the governing laws (commandments) of GOD whether they would prove to be trustworthy servants or are just self expedient liars. Read about this love that fulfills the royal law at The Love That Fulfills The Royal Law and the faith needed to please GOD. Those called by GOD can and do lose their salvation which is to fail this judgment or assessment (Hebrews 10:26  27) through willful disobedience and unrepentant rebellious sinning willfully continuing the breaking of GOD's law and commandments and having a hostile, spiteful, acrimoniously rebellious attitude towards GOD.
The judgment process involves the assessment of the conduct of their life and their commitment to GOD’s laws and commandments after being offered the redemption that comes through the New Covenant. For the rest of mankind their time to ‘be’ judged is in the Second Resurrection (Hebrews 9:27; Matthew 10:15; 12:42; Luke 11:31  32) after they are all resurrected back to physical lifeThe doctrine of ‘once saved forever saved by grace through alone faith and not of works’ from the Christmas religion is just another one of their many evil lies.
Unrepentant sinners are those who either at the very beginning when the Gospel message was revealed to them which they knowing full well that it is the truth, willfully rejected it (Mark 3:22, 28 – 30) or when through the course of their lives (after their conversion) they willfully (being awake and aware) cease to continue to honor the Covenant made through the death and BLOOD of JESUS CHRIST. This Covenant, the New Everlasting Covenant, comes with all the requirements of a full life long commitment to obey GOD, keeping and abiding by all HIS commandments which are every teaching and commandments recorded in the Holy Christian Scriptures according to their intents. These include the full unmodified Ten Commandments, and the unaltered (untwisted) commanded commemoration of JESUS CHRIST’s death as the New Covenant Passover.
The Prophet Balaam, King Saul, Apostle appointee failure Judas Iscariot, and the Son of Perdition (2 Thessalonians 2:3) were just a few of those which the Christian Holy Scriptures recorded as those who have lost their salvation, condemned to forever perdition. Those called and those being called in this Age of Man are not the only ones being judged during this age or eon, Satan the Devil and his Angels (the rebellious angels of GOD) are also being judged (John 16:11) to fully expose them as completely responsible for all the sins and evil in the Creation. Read the full perspective on the purpose of test, trials here in Genesis The Remaining Chapters of Bible 101 – The Holy Bible Expounded.

6. Willful rebellion in refusing to be corrected, refusing to repent is one of the two ultimate failure points. It is the unrepentant hostile scornful arrogant attitude of rebellion against GOD. This is the sin of Satan the Devil and all the Angelic personages in cohort with him. This too is the sins of the Apostle appointee failure, Judas Iscariot, and of the Son of Perdition of 2 Thessalonians 2. Sinning willingly is disobedience, All disobedience are committed willingly and is therefore also rebellion, but not all rebellions are willful rebellions. All blasphemies are sins but not all blasphemies are blasphemous against the HOLY SPIRIT. Blasphemy against the HOLY SPIRIT is The blasphemy for which there is no forgiveness. Even the Saints of GOD can and do blaspheme GOD. One such was carried out, expressed by, one of the most righteous man who have ever lived, who charged that GOD had wronged him (meaning he accused GOD of being unjust and unrighteous). But on being corrected, he abhorred himself and repented in dust and ashes.

7. Insincerity in our dealings with GOD, is the other ultimate failure point. It was the failure point of King Saul and also Balaam the Prophet. This is not general insincerity but the specific insincerity of willfully lying to GOD, lying against the HOLY SPIRIT. This insincerity is fully and explicitly revealed and exposed when GOD corrects them and they refused to repent, either willfully ignoring the correction or pretend stupidity to not understand (as both Balaam and King Saul did) so as to be able to continued on lusting after all that they lusted after.

8. Ezekiel 3 and 33 the conviction point:

“So you, son of man: I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore you shall hear a word from My mouth and warn them for Me. When I say to the wicked, ‘O wicked man, you shall surely die!’ and you do not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at your hand. Nevertheless if you warn the wicked to turn from his way, and he does not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered your soul.

General misconceptions. [genmcpt]

Being able to perform miraculous signs is not the definitive sign of whether a person is a true Prophet of GOD. Neither is the ability to be able to foretell future events. When a man of GOD faithfully speaks the words from GOD then those words will come to pass (happen accordingly) but when a man of GOD speaks his own word, he speaks just as any other man and his words carry no more power than that of any other sinner. This even an evil self expedient Prophet of GOD, Balaam, understood (Numbers 22:38; 23:26; 24:12). Unfortunately not every man of GOD seems to understand this. Quite a few of these leaders and elders among GOD's Elect, especially those from this current vain ego gorging and evil generation, have spoken from their own puffed up sense of self important and superiority boasting to their own shame.

From the sorcerers of Egypt (Exodus 7:10 – 23; 8:1 – 7), the witch at En Dor (1 Samuel 28:19), Simon of the Babylonian Mystery religion in the book of Acts (Acts 8:9  – 11), the demon possessed slave girl who brought her master much profit (Acts 16:16 – 19), to the False Prophet spoken of in the book of Revelation (Revelation 13:11 – 15), the Christian Holy Scriptures recorded of evil man and demons being able to perform wondrous signs and to foretell (prophesy) the future.

A Prophet of GOD is not necessarily an epitome of virtue and piousness, hardly. Prophets of GOD including all the Saints of GOD are just as weak and prone to sinning even very blasphemous sins, as the next evil sinner. Never put a man (includes woman) of GOD on a pedestal as if he is some sort of super virtuous human being, this would be idolatry, breaking the second commandment and the first and great commandment (something almost all the Elect of the last two era of GOD's Church have done and are still doing). This is the number one sin of nearly all of the Elect (both inside and outside of the membership of the Church of GOD) of today. Nor be disdainful or disrespectful of a man you believed GOD had ordained to be the Messenger and leader over the Church of GOD. Always respect and honor the office of GOD's appointment (Matthew 23: 1  3) just as King David, the man after GOD's heart did.

Noah, one among three of the most righteous man who ever lived, got drunk. Moses who mediated the Old Covenant for GOD with the ancient Israelite disobeyed a direct command from GOD because he lost his temper (Numbers 20:7 – 11) and sin a very serious sin in his direct disobedience.  King David a man after GOD’s very own heart not only committed adultery but also the premeditated murder of the woman’s righteous husband. Abraham the Father of the Faithful repeatedly asked his wife to lie because he was afraid he would be killed because of her (Genesis 12:13). Samuel like many who were fathers among GOD’s Saints, he was over indulgent with his sons (1 Samuel 8:1 – 3). John the Baptist despite his own experiential knowledge and testimony of JESUS being the CHRIST, doubted (Matthew 11:2 – 4) exposing his glaring lack of believing faith choosing to embrace the lust of deliberately pretending stupidity.

The Apostles Paul the ‘favorite’ of many of the Christmas religion's harlot daughters was so arrogantly puffed up by his intellectual superiority and of having received awesome visions, revelations and empowerment of miracles that JESUS put a ‘thorn in his flesh’ to keep him humble (2 Corinthians 12:1 – 7) in order that he would not loose his inheritance in GOD’s Kingdom by becoming so overwhelmingly arrogant, even as he was very explicitly arrogant (Galatians 2:11 – 17; Philippians 18:15 – 18; Romans 15:20, 16:25; Ephesians 3:3 – 4; 1 Corinthians 15:51; 2 Corinthians 10:13 – 16) while putting on a front, putting on a facade of being lowly and contrite (1 Corinthians 15:9; Ephesians 3:8; Titus 1:1).

And lest I should be exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I be exalted above measure.
2 Corinthians 12:7

But not even this thorn in his flesh’ was able to keep him from, could stop Apostle Paul from, hijacking and apportioning the Grace of GOD to use as a tool so that he can preach against circumcision; so that he could in great vehemence wrath attack those who had dared to question his superiority over all others as the greatest of GOD's Apostle.

In the chapter, ‘The Elect’ aside from the ego supergorging lust of the Apostle Paul, you can also read about: the Apostle Peter caving under and from, ‘the intimidation’ of the Apostle Paul, to preach grace rather than, and instead of, the repentance requirement of the Gospel of the Kingdom; James the half brother of the LORD JESUS, a deacon/bishop by anointment but seeking to show himself to all that he was also an Apostle; the Messenger to the Philadelphia era and the second Messenger to the Laodicea era of GOD's Church how these two men from the same ego supergorging lusts, introduced and invented all manner of lies and evil doctrines in order to advance and elevate themselves (their self images and egos) and to set their own self advancing and self righteous agenda over the message of the Gospel (to over rule both LORD JESUS and The FATHER) instead of seeking to do the will and work of GOD which is to sincerely, meekly, humbly preach the truth of the faith that leads to the repentance towards GOD in the message of the Gospel. For the discussion on what exact is the Gospel, the official message of the Gospel and why, please read the discussion the Official Gospel Message in the post, ‘Passover 2015 C.E.’.

So don’t ever let Satan the Devil put your hearts into such disdain that you should think and speak evil against (to malign and slander) a Prophet or servant of GOD. He is his MASTER’s servant. If you speak evil of (i.e. malign and slander) him you are directly speaking evil against his GOD (1 Samuel 8:7; Numbers 12:1 – 4, 8 – 10; James 4:11 – 12; 5:9). On his MASTER’s judgment he rise and fall but never on yours. His MASTER who raised him up to do HIS will can make him stand in glory even if he falls completely (Romans 14:4). Do not be puffed up by your self righteousness to think that you are greater than GOD that you are qualified to judge GOD and HIS servant. When you judge (to speak evil of) the servant of GOD you are basically blaspheming GOD by implicitly telling GOD that HE is either blind or stupid for making that man (includes woman) HIS Prophet. This is the sin of many of those who have left and renounced GOD's Church andor the other fellowships of the Elect in the hundreds of so called Churches of Gods (COGs).

That however does not mean that a leader or Prophet of GOD can sin against you with impunity (as indeed they do sin sometimes as frequently, badly and even dastardly as the next great sinner). If indeed such a thing should happen, you should approach the situation with all due respect to his office and speak with him from love (Matthew 18:15) in a respectfully manner telling him the wrong he has done against you. And should he not listen and act against you then you should present the matter to GOD. GOD will justify you (Psalm 17:1 – 2; 35:12 – 29) if your cause is just even as it may take many, many years for this to come about.

For there is not a just man on earth who does good And does not sin.
Ecclesiastes 7:20

“Judge not, that you be not judged. For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye? Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.
Matthew 7:1 – 5

As it is with HIS Prophets and also with all HIS Elect, GOD usually waits patiently for them to willingly correct themselves, often times letting them get a lot worse, a whole lot worse. This was with the case with King David, and if you have the eyes to see it this was also the case with the Apostle Paul, and in these last days, with that Worthless Shepherd of the sheep. The same too were the cases of the Prophet Balaam and King Saul only with different results because they willfully refused to repent. Even with the Antediluvian Age, as also both the Ancient Kingdoms of Israel (later Samaria) and Judah only with the latter they were not completely destroyed as it was GOD's will (i.e. intention and purpose) to preserve the genealogical lineage of the Biblical Patriarch that GOD's promises to them would stand, fulfilled at the fullness of times when GOD will reestablish these genealogical descendants as the citizenry of the Kingdom of GOD in the Promise Land.

If you see or know that a leader or Prophet of GOD is committing any sin but not against you, pray for him that GOD will lead him to and grant him repentance. This will be to your worthiness merit and future reward (Mark 9:4; James 5:20; 1 Peter 4:8) in the Kingdom of GOD. At no time should you let yourself behave, and conduct yourself to speak as if you are more righteous than the person who you know is sinning. This was just one of the Apostle Paul’s numerous sins and mistakes and he paid for it with a lifetime of sorrow.

Do not let your heart to wander or your lips to sin when you see the wicked prosper. Their sins are building up to the day when GOD will punish them in the Great Judgment. This is when all who had ever lived will be resurrected to be judged and justly punished. Death cannot deliver you from GOD’s justice, judgment and righteous punishment, a punishment that fits the crime (sin and evil deeds). No one gets away with anything where GOD is concerned.

GOD neither force nor manipulate us against the freewill we have been granted. Everyone, both Saints and sinners are led and driven by their own lust to do evil. There are no exceptions, all are basically wicked if we so chose to be, if we let ourselves be focused on ourselves and all that we craved and lusted after. Each one according to measure of knowledge, of what they know, are required to conduct themselves accordingly. The ultimate difference between  the one who perish and the one who is saved comes down to whether a person would accept correction from GOD and repent. The one who is condemned is the one who refuses to be corrected, refusing to repent, instead choosing to hang on to the lust and evil that they have embraced and become.

Also He spoke this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others: “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, ‘God, I thank You that I am not like other men—extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this tax collector. I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I possess.’ And the tax collector, standing afar off, would not so much as raise his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me a sinner!’ I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”
Luke 18:9 – 14

Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked— I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.
Revelation 3:17 – 19

“Therefore you, O son of man, say to the children of your people: ‘The righteousness of the righteous man shall not deliver him in the day of his transgression; as for the wickedness of the wicked, he shall not fall because of it in the day that he turns from his wickedness; nor shall the righteous be able to live because of his righteousness in the day that he sins.’ When I say to the righteous that he shall surely live, but he trusts in his own righteousness and commits iniquity, none of his righteous works shall be remembered; but because of the iniquity that he has committed, he shall die. Again, when I say to the wicked, ‘You shall surely die,’ if he turns from his sin and does what is lawful and right, if the wicked restores the pledge, gives back what he has stolen, and walks in the statutes of life without committing iniquity, he shall surely live; he shall not die. None of his sins which he has committed shall be remembered against him; he has done what is lawful and right; he shall surely live.
Ezekiel 33:12 – 16

Say to them: ‘As I live,’ says the Lord God, ‘I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live. Turn, turn from your evil ways! For why should you die, O house of Israel?’
Ezekiel 33:11

From all that I have written and expounded it must by now be abundantly clear that it is not necessarily very easy for those who have little or no knowledge of the Holy Christian Scriptures to be able to tell a false prophet from a true Prophet of the Christian GOD. And that is the whole problem, many people with some knowledge of the Christian Holy Scriptures having just read or studied the Christian Bible immediately believed themselves to be the definitive supreme experts when it comes to these Scriptures. Both Saints and Antichrists alike are affected by the “rocket scientist” syndrome of ego gorging and ego supergorging lust. This you can easily verify on the internet how every one who wrote their views, opinions, assertions, proclamations and pronouncements on any issue or doctrine of the Christian faith and worship or ‘religion’, all spoke as if they are the most utmost authorities and experts, everyone speaking holding themselves as the proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives of supreme enlightenment, knowledge and wisdom, when most of them are no more than just ignorant and arrogant rules based hairsplitters. If anyone in all sincerity without preconceived ideas and biases, have thoroughly read all that I have written in this work and have checked them against all that the others have published on the internet then heshe would (or should anyway) know that what I testified to are true.

This section is a reworked and highly summarized extract from the chapter ‘The Elect’ of ‘Bible 101 – The Holy Bible Expounded’, a more detailed version of this extract can be found in the post, ‘Sinners Or Saints – Which’ of this blog. }

for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God
Romans 3: 23

There is none righteous, no, not one;
There is none who understands;
There is none who seeks after God.
They have all turned aside;
They have together become unprofitable;
There is none who does good, no, not one.”
Romans 3:11 – 12

One of the things everyall true Christians need to know for a certainty is that every creature man (includes woman) are sinners (i.e. doers of evilwithout exception. All not only can do and will do evil (when it would become expedient for them to do so should they not be fully committed to their Covenant with GOD) in their lifetime (and therefore are evil and wicked), but all have already done evil and are therefore evil. That is what the Christian Holy Scriptures explicitly and very clearly, plainly and literally recorded. Anyone one who do not believe this and accept this about themselves yet think of themselves as GOD fearing faithful Christian is basically from the perspective Christian Holy Scriptures a pathological liar (someone who blaspheme GOD, explicitly calling GOD a liar and yet in self deceiving delusion think they are faithful Christians), no buts about it.

If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.
1 John 1:10

But not just a pathological liar but an evil blasphemers, explicitly blaspheming GOD, calling GOD a liar (1 John 1:10). I won't say how many of GOD's very Elect today are actually implicitly and also explicitly doing that, calling GOD a liar, I will let them seek to justify themselves to GOD, all these proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives of GOD. But I will say that every single creature personage who today have been strutting around in either delusional contrite pompous humility or exalted righteousness nobility of themselves being the Philadelphia remnants (or something along that line), as themselves being GOD's proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives are all doing exactly that, calling GOD a liar.

Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked— I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see.
Revelation 3:17 – 18

Everyone of GOD's Elect who as of these last days have asserted, proclaimed, announced or pronounced themselves as these so loving, so noble and so faithful servants of GOD who will be taken to the place of safety before the Tribulation are all doing exactly that. They are all calling the LORD JESUS and GOD a liar to THEIR very FACES.

They are all saying that the explicitly recorded Words of LORD JESUS and GOD to HIS one and only true Church of the New Testament ever at everyall times (Matthew 16:18; Revelation 2:1, 7, 8, 11, 12, 17, 18, 29; 3:1, 6, 7, 13, 14, 22; 12:1, 6, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17; all the words translated as church and churches were the same word ‘ekklēsia) during the last days of the Age of Man are totally irrelevant to them. That because they are these proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives of ‘the so’ righteously, truth loving brotherly faithful remnants (or whatever mega super virtues) that the direct commands of LORD JESUS to all of GOD's Elect and Saints during the last leg of the Church of GOD journey are only directed at everyone else but not them, never them. That they are so mega supremely Holy, pure, divine, righteous and agape love that GOD has not a single word, do not have a single word, for them at all in HIS message to HIS Elect of the Last Days (Revelation 3:14 – 21); that they ‘have left’ GOD completely astounded and speechless when it comes to them. This ‘must be because’ they are so supremely righteous that GOD ‘have to, is compelled to’  just let them be to do all that their exalted hearts and corrupted minds imagine (Genesis 8:21) to do and to acclaim, proclaim, announce and pronounce.

Judgment always begins in the House of GOD (1 Peter 4:17). Why else do you think that GOD is going let all these Elect fall into the hands of the Beast and the False Prophet to be horrendously persecuted in the Tribulation, if they won't, if they refused to repent soon? Grace which came through the New Covenant saves all sinners who repentnot the righteous who need no repentance (Luke 5:32; Matthew 9:13; Mark 2:17)!

One of the universally pervasive and consistent attitude in the hearts and minds of mankind since the first family of mankind were evicted from the Garden of Eden almost six thousand years ago, had been and continued to be, that of ego gorging lust, of each and everyone holding this delusional view of themselves as in from one, to some, to all manner and ways, superior as well as supreme over all others (all of the other members of mankind), particularly all those who are contemporary with them. This is even as they brazenly boast in mega super humility and contriteness of how they are the lowest of the lowest and the basest of basest of sinners, the lowest of the humbly contrite of the planet, the most mega super supremely subservient slave of GOD (i.e. that by virtue that they are so meek, humble and contrite therefore they are thus inadvertently and definitively supremely supreme over all the rest). Unbelievable total delusional mega super mega ego maniacs in their unbridled ego supergorging frenzy.

Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked— I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see
Revelation 3:17 – 18

This is so obvious to the whole world of mankind, even to those who are equally lust driven among all of mankind, but all these proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives who are the elders and leaders among the Elect both inside and outside of the membership of the Church of GOD today are so totally blinded by their lust that they cannot see (Revelation 3:18), they absolutely refused to see.

This (Revelation 3:14 – 19) by itself alone which was prophesied almost two thousand years ago and today fulfilled precisely and exactly as was prophesied, is already absolute undeniable without a shadow of doubt proof that the Christian Holy Scriptures is indeed the very unbreakable Word of GOD.

The Doctrine Of SOVEREIGN Grace [SG]

God looks down from heaven upon the children of men,
To see if there are any who understand, who seek God.
Every one of them has turned aside;
They have together become corrupt;
There is none who does good,
No, not one.
Psalm 53:2 – 3

He saw that there was no man,
And wondered that there was no intercessor;
Therefore His own arm brought salvation for Him;
And His own righteousness, it sustained Him.
Isaiah 59:16

knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law; for by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified.
Galatians 2:16

What is the most important doctrine of the Gospel message? Here I speak of the whole Gospel message not the rules-based hairsplitter myopic tunnel vision version that nearly all those who claimed to believe in the GOD of the Christian Holy Scriptures as the FATHER, and JESUS CHRIST as the SON and LORD of all, whether these are proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives of the Christmas religions or other Antichrist religions, or even the proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives among the Elect from the Apostolic days until today, have all been proclaiming and acclaiming for the longest time?

Indeed the Gospel message is one whole, thoroughly complete message, with many elements and facets to it, covering government (i.e. governing system) from the perspective of responsible authority; mercy and compassion as an expression of love; grace as the will, intent and purpose of GOD; love as motivation that is the precipitate of and for all good; lust as the motivation which is the precipitate of and for all evil wickedness; nurturing and constructive parenting; commitment and faithfulness; trust and trustworthiness; subservient and obedience; repentance; baptism; laying on of hands symbolic of anointing; reconciliation; redemption of GOD; salvation from death to inherit immortality; the ending of all conflict and wars, the ending all lust and evil, testing as the full spectrum (or scope) of the purpose of tests and trials; etc. and etc.

And of all this, the single most important doctrine of the Gospel is that of SOVEREIGN Grace. Without GOD's grace and mercy there is no redemption, no salvation, no resurrection and therefore no hope absolutely for all mankind who have ever lived or will ever live, and that all shall exactly like (i.e. similar to) the beasts of this planet, all will die sooner or later, one way or another, and that will be the end of it for all individually and collectively. In fact if not for SOVEREIGN Grace there would not have been any creation at all, not the Angels in heaven, not all life on earth, not this physical universe that science proclaimed was created by absolutely nothing.

That is the reason the Scriptures recorded that the LAMB (of GOD) was ‘slain from the foundation of the world’ (Revelation 13:8). And that was why grace (i.e. SOVEREIGN Grace) was already ordained before time began, that is Grace was ordained before GOD even created the heavens and earth, and before all the Angels were created, before GOD created anything at all yet.

who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began,
2 Timothy 1:9

in hope of eternal life which God, who cannot lie, promised before time began
Titus 1:2

Grace was ordained by GOD before HE created anything at all through the WORD, because without grace, all things created would ultimately come to nothing at all. This is the doctrine of SOVEREIGN Grace, that it is only because of GOD will, purpose and intent that anything exist at all and it is through this same will, purpose and intent of GOD that all the creature personage (all those having a self conscious awareness, freewill and intelligence) could have a continuity of life that never ends but first there is lesson that all absolutely without fail must learn. And that lesson is the absolute without exception requirement that all must understand who they are, exactly; and what they must and must not do, absolutely.

That is why grace do not and cannot invalidate andor nullify the Royal Laws and Holy Commandments of GOD as have been the evil lies advanced and proclaimed by all of the evil religions that claimed themselves as from the ALMIGHTY CREATOR GOD. Grace not only required the laws and commandments to fully and always be in effect; and to be not just fully obeyed and honored but also to be upheld and held sacred by all who through grace received mercy, forgiveness and redemption. Grace cannot be given and effected if there are no laws and commandments that must be in effect and must be obeyed. Without laws and commandments that must be obeyed, grace would be a totally meaningless thing having no functional purpose to it. This is just as mercy as no application and therefore no meaning if there are no infraction that needed forgiveness. The term forgiveness carries the concept of overlooking, passing over andor not taking into account, an infraction. This is where it defers from, having this addition conceptual meaning to, the term sparing (i.e. to spare someone or something) out off benevolence, kindness, indifference or other motivations.

For there to be repentance (i.e. for repentance to have a meaning as an expression) there must be transgressions. For there to be transgressions (i.e. the going against, a refusing to abide by) there must be a law (a system of ordinances or regulatory whether ‘written or unwritten’) to regulate what is acceptable behavior in the context of [1] a CREATOR who owns and rule over everything [2] HIS creatures (and therefore peers from this context) in relation to their social order (the environment of their existence) in their interaction among themselves.

For this reason, Grace do not and cannot (i.e. because it must not) justify those who refused to obey the law, those who seek to break andor nullify the law. Grace allows for repentance, without grace and forgiveness, repentance serves no purpose (i.e. does nothing) for the sinner and lawbreaker. Grace is the avenue to receive mercy for those who are repentant.

Please read the chapter ‘Grace, Sin And The Commandments Of GOD’ of ‘Bible 101 – The Holy Bible Expounded’ for the more complete discussion on SOVEREIGN Grace to understand the distinction between grace and mercy, that grace and mercy are not the same thing, that mercy is part of grace and grace is much more than just mercy.

This again is not something so difficult and hard to understand that one would need to be a supreme genius rocket scientists (or boffins) to understand. So how come nobody seem to? 

The Definitive Sign of A False Prophet. [dsfp]

Miracles and foretelling the future not withstanding a man who teaches and advocate the breaking of the commandments of GOD, any single one of the commandments, particularly the Ten Commandments and the Sabbath can only be the agents of Satan the Devil. But even more definitive, are all those who advocate either directly (by forbidding the commemoration) or indirectly (through changing any elements of the commanded commemoration) the disregarding of the New Covenant through which all are redeemed and by which all who honor, keep and obey are sanctified.

These they do:

1. By deceitfully changing, rephrasing and reordering the commandments of GOD andor making changes (whether major, large, small or minute) to anything that GOD had commanded, instituted or ordained to show off themselves that they are greater, holier and infinitely more all knowingly wiser than GOD, that GOD got it all wrong and had to wait for thousand of years for them to come around and correct HIS numerous mistakes.

2. Telling you that the commandments are unimportant andor no longer relevant because of the New Covenant that all you need to do is “love” one another or something along those lines.

3. Saying that it is, ‘by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boasttwisting the message of the Apostle Paul to say that there is no longer a need to do anything to be saved. (Read the full untwisted true message of what the Apostle Paul really taught here, and read here why the messages of the Apostle Paul seemingly were full of contradictions).

4. Saying (by twisting the message of the Apostle Paul) that the Laws and the Commandments of GOD because they are an enmity against us, have been abolished; GOD ‘having nailed it to the cross’ of JESUS CHRIST when HE died as the LAMB of GOD.

5. Saying that you are under the New Covenant with ‘the laws of GOD written in your heart’ meaning all you have to do is do whatever you believe is right or whatever you feel is right, meaning you can do anything at all that you want to do as long as you can in some twisted ways with spins added in, tell (even if you have to totally lie to) yourself that it is not wrong.

6. Commanding that you should celebrate JESUS CHRIST so called resurrection on Easter Sunday, or to observe the so called the communion or the so called Lord's Supper as often as you want, or any other day you want to, instead of the commemorating HIS death in the New Covenant Passover (after sunset on the fourteenth day of the first month of the Holy Calendar, or the allowed second date provision in the following month as ordained and commanded of the Passover commemoration) as what JESUS CHRIST had instituted (before HE was tortured and murdered) which HE had commanded all HIS Apostles including the Apostle Paul to observe and commemorate. This they do through claiming that we should celebrate the supposed day of resurrection of JESUS even when the Holy Christian Scriptures clearly and explicitly commanded that we are to commemorate HIS death (1 Corinthians 11:25 – 26) until HE comes (i.e. HIS return). Either that or have the Passover commemorated on a totally different date (either every year or in just some years, with other years on the same date as observed by the Church of GOD), claiming that their date is more correctly calculated date. Please note that in pagan Judaism (the religion of the modern day Jews), their so calledLord's Passover” is celebrated on the 15th (one day after the anniversary of the original ‘LORD'S Passover’). This is not what was commanded in the Holy Christian Scriptures which is evening of the 14th of the first month of the Sacred Calendar (Leviticus 23:5). Anyone uncertain of the date of the Christian Passover Commemoration should note that it is one day before that of the “Lord's Passover” of the pagan religion of Judaism.

Please read the post, ‘Passover 2015 C.E.’ for the discussion why the terms ‘Communion’ andor ‘Lord's Supper’ are neither an appropriate nor valid as names for the compulsory commemoration of the ‘LORD's death until HE comes’ (1 Corinthians 11:24 – 26; Matthew 26:28; Mark 14:24; Luke 22:20) in New Covenant in the Passover.

7. Commanding that you to keep Sunday as the Sabbath instead of the original Saturday Sabbath that GOD made for mankind during Creation Week which GOD commanded to be kept Holy (Isaiah 58:13) as a sign (for a proof) of your willingness to obey HIM (Exodus 16:4; 26 – 30).

8. Advocating the celebration of Christmas, Easter, Lent, Good Friday and Sunday including every festivities and celebrations which GOD never commanded to be observed instead of celebrating those that GOD did command which HE gave to enlighten mankind of HIS whole plan for bringing mankind into HIS direct FAMILY. Read about this master plan of GOD in ‘The Sabbath And The Holy Days’ of Bible 101 – The Holy Bible Expounded.

9. Teaching that when the Christian Holy Scriptures recorded about keeping the commandments of GOD, the Scriptures were referring to love and some other commandments not recorded in the New Testament records but definitely not those that were explicitly recorded and commanded such as the Ten Commandments and the Passover commemoration and the Holy Feasts of GOD and anything other things that GOD commanded that was recorded in the Old Testament records.

10. Implicitly telling you that when JESUS CHRIST said ‘For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth’t hat JESUS was either lying or that HE didn't know how to count and what HE really meant was just two nights and slightly over one day’ or some other ridiculous story.

The whole goal and focus of False Prophets just as have been that of the Christmas and all other Antichrists religions, has been to make the Christian Holy Scriptures irrelevant, that everyone should only believe them and obey them and not believe the things that had been clearly and plainly recorded in the Holy Christian Scriptures. This will then cause everyone to continue sinning against GOD breaking GOD's Laws and Commandments and the New Everlasting Covenant preventing them from receiving grace and redemption that comes from repentance to avail of and accept the mercy and grace of GOD by committing to the Covenant, the Everlasting Covenant (Matthew 26:27 – 28; 1 Corinthians 11:25 – 26) that GOD had ordained through which all mankind may be saved.

As for true Christian, all those who had already repented and entered into the Everlasting Covenant with GOD (the FATHER) made through the death and BLOOD of LORD JESUS, the attack of Satan the Devil through his agents has been to cause them to break the Everlasting Covenant and also the Commandments of GOD. This Satan the Devil does firstly through getting them to observe a different Covenant from that which JESUS instituted and commanded to be commemorated. Concurrently Satan the Devil also target the Sabbath that it should not be kept causing the breaking of one (and by extension the first four, as well as all) of the Ten Commandments of GOD. When it comes to commandment breaking, if you (as an Elect of GOD) break one, any one, you are a sinner through that one that you break. Further when you seek to and then break (which is the as same as refusing to keep) a commandment of GOD you are also breaking your covenant with GOD. Obeying GOD and keeping (performing, up holding and abiding by) all his commandments is part and parcel of (and cannot be separated from) a Covenant with GOD accepting HIM as GOD, OWNER and MASTER.

The False Prophet. [fp]

The fact is if we (those who have the faith to believe GOD) are to thoroughly check through even just what is recorded in man’s history we would find that for every single true Prophet of GOD there have been tens to hundreds of thousand of false prophets. These are men and women who claimed to speak for the CREATOR and to have a special relationship with HIM above all the other inhabitants of this planet.

Even on this very day on this ‘nanoscopic’ planet earth, there are from hundreds to thousands of men and women who are currently making these claims that they are these proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives of GOD. And of these a good percentage are from those who claimed to be prophets of the GOD of the Scripture of Truth. But that is just the half of it.

The other half of it which is the more incredible to believe, is that there are from hundreds to countless millions (yes billions too) of people who believed them, following after them and obeying them. Many even worship them to varying degrees (i.e. to obey to do the bidding) which they do either from their ego proxification lusts so they can feel themselves as superior and supreme, andor to use of these worship of these personalities or entities as a launch pad to advance themselves as the ‘anointed’ heir to these personalities or entities they claimed to worship (i.e. claimed to be following after and obeying).

But if you were to thoroughly research these believers and followers you would be totally dumbfounded how most of them do so more on a whim (some ethereal sentiment or illogical fear), without doing any fully rationalized thought through, detailed and thorough check on whether these so called self proclaimed prophets, messiahs and even gods are really authentic. This applies to all of the major religions (including atheism, science and Darwinism) of our modern technological advanced, highly educated and “enlightened” social order. In this the true Christian faith and worship is also not excluded as GOD had fully proven in the last days through the hour of trial that started soon after the end of the Philadelphia period which saw nearly all the Elect and Saints fully, directly and explicitly worshiping a particular man instead of GOD.

Yes, all the Elect and Saints of today are all, have all been explicitly breaking the second Commandment (of the Ten Commandments). But that is not all, they have all also explicitly been breaking the third Commandment, nearly all of them have been blaspheming GOD for the longest time, attributing to GOD all manner of ridiculous and even explicitly evil things so as to advance themselves as the utmost supremely supreme proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives of GOD.

He answered and said to them, “Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written:
This people honors Me with their lips,
But their heart is far from Me.
And in vain they worship Me,
Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’
For laying aside the commandment of God, you hold the tradition of men —the washing of pitchers and cups, and many other such things you do.”
He said to them, “All too well you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your tradition
Mark 7:5–8

If we really understand the Ten Commandments in what is actually commanded, we would (or should anyway) know that to break any single one from the first to fifth commandments, we have also already fully broken the first Commandment which is to have no other Gods. Therefore to break any one or more of the first five of the Ten Commandments, we would have already broken the First Great Commandment that require us to love GOD above all else without exception. If we actually fully understood the first commandment (i.e. to have no other God) we would (or should anyway) know that to seek to break (which is the exact same thing as to refuse to honor and keep) any of the Royal Laws and Holy Commandments of GOD at all is already breaking (Romans 6:16) the First Great Commandment which is also breaking the first commandment of the Ten Commandments).

He answered and said to them, “Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written:
This people honors Me with their lips,
But their heart is far from Me.
Mark 7:6 (also Isaiah 29:13)

Therefore all these Elect, both leaders and lay members, are all just pretending (i.e. giving lip service) to specifically honor, keep and perform the Ten Commandments (let's us not even begin to touch on all the rest of GOD's Commandments), they are all just paying lip service to these Commandments. This was exactly what JESUS told the Jewish religious authorities during HIS three and a half year ministry as the MEDIATOR of the New Covenant, nearly two thousand years ago. So it is the exact same thing today, just as it was with the Elect (the ancient religious Jews) during the time of the First Advent, so it is now with the Elect (the discipleship both inside the membership of the Church and those outside) the same sins of paying lip service but their hearts are all far from GOD. Here the Dualism and Type symbolism is exactly expressed. The ancient religious Jews were the Type and the Elect of GOD today is the actual fulfillment of the Dualism symbolism of the Elect and the Chosen of GOD.
You can read about just a few of these numerous blasphemies embraced and subscribed to in varying degrees by all the Elect of today; the blasphemies announced, pronounced, proclaimed and advanced by all the leaders among the Elect, in the post, ‘The Mechanics Of Faith Retrospection’ of the blog, ‘Living By Every Word’.
The prerogative (right) and onus (responsibility) on who to believe and what to believe, has always been either a personal conviction (for some) or preference (for the rest). I have presented all the facts and truths gleaned (collected, collated and explained) from the Christian Holy Scriptures and laid them out in a plain and coherent manner that will allow just about anyone with average intelligence, who holds to the Christian Holy Scriptures as the inspired word of the Christian GOD, to know a true Prophet of GOD from a false one.

Nearly every person who considered himself or herself to be a Christian, would (or anyway should) hold to the belief that the Christian Holy Scripture is the inspired word and revelation of the Christian GOD.

Of course there are those who pretend that they hold to it, and there are those who do not hold to it at all but still make the claim that they believe in JESUS as either a Prophet or Messiah of GOD. Those that pretend to hold to it are those that have their own “scriptures” which they hold to and the Christian Holy Scriptures are just used to justify and support their own “scriptures”, to pass off (aka proclaimed that) their “scriptures” as from GOD, and themselves as the faithful of GOD.

Please read the supplementary discussion ‘Not Yet A Worldwide Conversion’ in the post ‘The End Of The World How It Is Going To Happen’ for the exposé on why the so called Abrahamic religions cannot and will never teach the truth about GOD and the true message of the Scripture Of Truth.

Whereas those who don’t hold to it as the inspired word of GOD (so they can justify their refusal to believe any of it) yet still claimed to believe in JESUS or the GOD of the Christian Holy Scriptures, these are just plain unabashed brazen psychotic liars who are just using the name of the Christian faith and worship (i.e. religion) as a front either for some evil schemes to advance themselves andor their religionsandor for their agenda to parasite on the fully lust driven gullible and equally psychopathic liars among mankind. Both the former and latter we can in good conscience (Matthew 10:16, 22 and 7:6 respectively) disregard and leave them (the former) to their evil schemes and devices and those (the latter) who subscribe to them to their lust driven lives being exploited and manipulated by those they out of lust have chosen to believe in and to totally worship. For indeed this world of ours is filled with very many such deceitful people and overflowing with the lust driven gullible such that the human parasites of the social order of mankind have an almost unlimited supply to feed from and feed off.

Among those who considered themselves as Christians and hold to the Christian Holy Scriptures as the inspired word and testimony of the Christian GOD there are again several categories. You can read about some of them in, ‘Keys To Unlocking The Mystery’.

Needless to say if you consider yourself to be a true sincere Christian seeking to truly love LORD JESUS and GOD you surely must have been serious in thoroughly studying the Christian Holy Scriptures, so stop lying to yourself and pretending that you are sincere if you haven't. And if indeed you have but have let yourself to be hoodwinked into the embracing the doctrines (especially those doctrines that are explicitly evil andor blasphemous) of the Christmas religion (or some other Antichrists' religion) or worshiping and following after some men (or women) who had presented himself as these proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives of the GOD of the Christian Holy Scriptures, and who have hijacked your devotion (however frivolous), you should be able to recognize GOD’s voice (John 10:27; 18:37) in all that I have written to be able to understand. I have set before you all the criteria which will allow you to distinguish a true Prophet of GOD from those who are frauds. The choice, onus and prerogative is yours whether to believe or to disbelieve.

Whatever the case, whether you chose to believe all that is written here or not, know for a certainty that there will be one great False Prophet performing signs and wonders to get the whole world to worship the Beast, that eighth and last Beast, not too long from this day of the year 2011 C.E. Even now the clock is ticking through the very last hour (1 John 2:18) of GOD’s time frame for mankind (to pursue after all that their lust fueled hearts and minds could conceived, imagined and fantasized; everyone devouring and being devoured) before the LORD JESUS return as KING of Kings and LORD of Lords to again exterminate the evil and wicked, as HE had done when HE drown out the Antediluvian Age.

For this reason the end to the Age of a Man, a mankind driven by lust to do all the evil that their hearts and minds could imagine, will climax with the appearance of the False Prophet to tell the world to build an image of the Beast. And the reason the whole world will heed him and worship the Beast is because they do not believe the words written in the Christian Holy Scriptures and testified to here in this work by this author.

And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived.
Revelation 13:12 – 14 

The Christian Holy Scriptures had not been ambiguous about this False Prophet and what he will set out to do and how he will mislead the bulk of mankind living in the days leading to the end of this Age of Man to persecute and murder the Elect and Saints of GOD.

He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Revelation 13:15 – 17

But this great False Prophet will be yet different from all other false prophets that arose and had arisen through the centuries, as well as all those who will abound in these last days. This False Prophet will also be a Beast; he will also be the leader of a sovereign nation state that rules over many waters (people), the head of a worldly sovereign city-state. And he will be able to perform ‘miracles’ as ‘he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men’. And the reason he does all these is so that he can ‘cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed’. That had been the same agenda as the Christmas religion for centuries until that evil religion lost its political sway and the derived power to do so, which was just a few hundred years ago.

Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name
Revelation 13:11 – 17

The False Prophet An Addendum

What are the signs of a false prophet, would you know? Similarly, what are the signs that a person is a true Prophet of the Christian GOD, the GOD of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob?

It is if a prophet prophesied something and it fail to come true, then the person is a FALSE prophet (of the ALMIGHTY GOD). Conversely if a person prophesied something and it came to pass (i.e. happened, is fulfilled or come true then that person must be a TRUE Prophet?

What do you (the reader) think? Are these the definitives of who is or is not a false prophet and who is or is not a true Prophet?

Now, if you think this author can be believed, this is what I say (and never mind if you don't). If you (the reader) think that (all those are mentioned in the previous three paragraphs of this section) that would reveal and expose you as the rules-based hairsplitter that this work has defined and discussed.

What this means is you either repent (from being moronically so stupid) to start being effectively intelligent, a key attribute that GOD required from all HIS creature personages (the Angels or Spirit composed personages and mankind made in HIS image and likeness), or stop reading anything discussed in this work as well as all that is recorded in the Scripture of Truth (aka the Word of GOD, the original text from which all the Christian Bible has been interpreted into). Because you will never be able (not because you are not capable or intelligent enough but you are just too massively stupid from being totally lust driven) to understand the complete truth that Scriptures recorded.

Everything recorded in the Scripture of Truth is related and connected to one another (both the truth and good that it taught as well as the lies and evils that it exposed) to give a full complete message of the Gospel of the Kingdom of GOD. It is one whole message supported by all its parts (every term, verse, passage, book) just as (an example, analogy and contextual representation) a car is only oa cart if all of its parts are there and functional otherwise it would just be parts of a car.

Rules Based Hairsplitters 

Here is the one passage which all the rules based hairsplitters read exclusively ignoring all the other things that they Scriptures recorded on how to tell a true Prophet of GOD from the false ones.

And if you say in your heart, ‘How shall we know the word which the Lord has not spoken?’— when a prophet speaks in the name of the Lord, if the thing does not happen or come to pass, that is the thing which the Lord has not spoken; the prophet has spoken it presumptuously; you shall not be afraid of him.
Deuteronomy 18:20 – 22

Here are all the rest that the rules based hairsplitters either did not border to read andor remember, or conveniently ignore and discard as irrelevant.

“If there arises among you a prophet or a dreamer of dreams, and he gives you a sign or a wonder, and the sign or the wonder comes to pass, of which he spoke to you, saying, ‘Let us go after other gods’—which you have not known—‘and let us serve them,’ you shall not listen to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams, for the Lord your God is testing you to know whether you love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul.
Deuteronomy 13:1 – 3

So then we have two passages of Scriptures that seemly are in conflict (aka are contradictory) to all those who are either rules based hairsplitters or to those who deliberately pretend stupidity (as to be able to either not understand or to scoff and mock, or both).

How about you (the regular readers andor followers of this work), do you understand? And if you do, what exactly is it that you understand? Here I quote other passages of Scripture for you (either so you can understand if you do not, or to confirm that you do indeed understand).

“Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of My pasture!” says the Lord. Therefore thus says the Lord God of Israel against the shepherds who feed My people: “You have scattered My flock, driven them away, and not attended to them. Behold, I will attend to you for the evil of your doings,” says the Lord.
Jeremiah 21:1 – 2 

Both the Prophet Jeremiah and Ezekiel record of a time in the future to them, a time which the Scriptures referred to as the latter/last ('achariyth [H319]) days/times (yowm [H3117]).

The term ‘'achariyth [H319]’ carried the base or primary concept of end as in an/the end or ending part and by extension also that of later part in a time chronology but there are two very specific periods this term is used in the Scripture to refer to.

The first was about the ancient Israelite how they (or their descendants) would after they had entered into their inheritance in the Promised Land soon became repeatedly unfaithful in honoring (includes keeping and performing) the (terms) of their Ten Commandments Covenant with the LORD GOD and be destroyed or ejected from the Promised Land (Deuteronomy 4:23 – 31, 31:29) because of these unfaithfulness.

The second refers to the period also known as the time of the end (Daniel 8:17; 11:35, 40; 12:4, 9) referring to the one hundred and twenty years last generation of mankind (Genesis 6:3; Matthew 24:34) who will see (i.e. be part of the events which lead to) the end of the six thousand years period (termed in this work as the Age of Man) when JESUS will return as KING of Kings and LORD of Lords and restore the Kingdom of GOD to the Promise Land.

The nations were angry, and Your wrath has come, And the time of the dead, that they should be judged, And that You should reward Your servants the prophets and the saints, And those who fear Your name, small and great, And should destroy those who destroy the earth.”
Revelation 11:18 

Here is one very simple thing that anyone who has basic cognitive capabilities and reading and comprehension skills would (or should anyway) totally understood and fully be cognizant of about the record of the Christian Holy Scriptures. And this is that these Scriptures are mostly to nearly completely meant for the last generation (aka last one hundred and twenty years) of humankind before the end of the Age of Man (aka the time leading to the events of the Second Advent) when JESUS will return as KING of Kings and LORD of Lords to destroy all those who implicitly and explicitly worship Satan the Devil concurrently to restoring the Kingdom of GOD as well as to reward HIS Saints.

The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His servants—things which must shortly take place. And He sent and signified it by His angel to His servant John
Revelation 1:1

Even as the record of the Christian Holy Scriptures were completed some two thousand years ago when JESUS sent HIS Angel (aka Angel of the LORD) to show to the Apostle John the revelation which GOD (the FATHER) gave to HIM, the things which must shortly (i.e. from the time onward begin to) take place after these revelations were given. These records (i.e. of the original text and not the corrupted interpreted translations tagged as the Christian Bible) had never ever been available to all mankind generally until these last days. Today just about anyone who have access to the internet can freely check out all the original texts of the Holy Christian Scriptures right from the comfort of their desk or bed at home. This is such an obvious truth and fact that anyone with even an inkling of effective intelligence would (or should anyway) have totally both perceived and understood but yet to this very day of overflowing knowledge technology and empowerment, all the proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives of ultra mega supreme super genius level intelligence in knowledge and enlightenment of all knowledge discipline (especially those of religion, science and philosophy) have absolute zero clue.

And anyone who has just a tad more effective intelligence than just an inkling, they would (or should anyway) clearly, explicitly, plainly and totally both perceive and understood why all the ultra mega supreme proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives of the human social until this very day from the beginning of recorded and documented human history, have all totally not been able to perceive and understand (evident in and from. all that they implicitly and explicitly proclaimed to advance and showoff themselves to all any sundry that they are the proclaimed and acclaimed of whatever they advance themselves to be).

In this work I have coined many terms and phrases to identify the attributes of the creatures personages (both those of the Spirit realm and the physical realm) especially in their self perception (ego self identity in how they actually subconsciously and also lesser but still significantly, consciously, think or hold themselves to be. This in the context of their significant position in their realm of existence as well as in the entire scheme of things (all of reality whether perceive and known or not, and includes all personage preferred fantasized notions). This self perception or ego self identity (both conscious and subconsciously expressed) are revealed and exposed by how they relate to, conduct themselves with and behave in all their expression of awake and aware living or expression (all actions, communications, and contemplating and analytical thinking) of life.

I have also very, very extensively used extremely extreme hyperbole. All these is not done to mock, belittle or tear down anyone no matter how ridiculously and massively stupid they are all because they chose to be so.

But these are done to highlight the incredulously insanely stupid lust of the creature personages that they (includes near all of mankind since the first family of mankind was created) would not just believe some of the most stupidly moronic and incredulously stupid moronic things proclaimed as awesome enlightened knowledge truth, but they would actually hold themselves as enlightened geniuses andor ultra supremely piously slaves of god because of all these incredulously stupidly moronic insane things they have totally bought into because of their uncontrolled lusting after all manner of lusts.

No doubt it is true that throughout most of the recorded history of mankind in those days of the dark ages where mankind have very little knowledge about themselves and their habitat of existence needless to mention their existential realm of existence and it would be excusable for fear and ignorance based belief systems to hold sway over the imaginations and thinking of near all those living in those age. But today such ignorance can no longer be excusable but yet we continue to see these same incredulously moronically ridiculously stupidly insane beliefs still being subscribed and pompously paraded as supreme knowledge enlightenment andor ingenious intelligence by near all of mankind.

Contextually then it can be said that today mankind have actually become or grown to become more stupidly insane than it all previous epoch or era of the generations of man since the beginning. This is because with all the increased knowledge mankind have (i.e. literally have access to) today (from some around a hundred years before) we have continued on to worship (aka idolize aka subscribe to as followers and disciples and also actually obey them, having totally bought into their incredulously stupidly moronic insanity lust seeded and fueled decrees, proclamations, pronouncements and assertions to actively and even zealously push these to others to the extend of maliciously persecuting andor mocking and ridiculing all dissenters and all those who refused to worship) those who proclaimed these utterly ridiculous and massive stupid things.
