reply to post by estimatedprophet
So, you've been appointed a prophet of YHWH by whom?
Just that, no true prophet can self-anoint, and by the look of things you are claiming to be a prophet in none but your own authority.. Those who
move in the prophetic gifts are nearly always blessed with the wisdom of counsel & instruction, being sensitive to the spirit of the age (in the sense
that the people receiving the message are known by God as they one day will be, and not as they are now.. Mercy, see..?) From the tone of your
posts, you are not moving with any sensitivity, nor with any great clarion call demonstrating your possession of insightful & godly wisdom. You are
basically rehashing opinions that have been spewed all over the internet for years, and for many more years in books before the internet came about,
and you are doing so insensitively, trashing the opinions of those who hold differently to yourself..
The qualifier of being a true prophet is that the word you bring concerning the stuff of nations & peoples, even individual persons, never fails to
come true - unless there is a qualifier attached to the prophecy that the people can avoid a certain outworking of destiny by taking the appropriate
remedial action. The path to redemption/ resolution of the problem is always made abundantly clear by the people's taking heed of the prophetic
warning in faith, knowing that it comes from the Most High
, collectively (see Jonah & the choice before Nineveh for the
scriptural basis of this claim..)
Interestingly, and leading on neatly as a related point, Jonah was the only 'rebel prophet' detailed in scripture - he basically had a skewed view of
God's intention for the world, a view that you seem to share with equal misunderstanding.. God desired a change in the outcome for Nineveh (the rules
were immutable; they knew His laws, but collectively disobeyed - the laws were as fundamental as the laws of physics to such a people..) Despite
YHWH's instruction to Jonah, that he should call Nineveh to change their ways and avoid the inevitable result of their wrongdoing, Jonah was instead
eager to see God's wrath pour down on Nineveh, and he refused to deliver the message as a result. Didn't turn out too well for Jonah in the
short-term (you don't need to buy into the idea that he was swallowed by a whale to get the point of the well-known tale), but fortunately, he
eventually properly understood God's plan, did as he was told, and it worked out well for all concerned.
You're zealous that people shouldn't follow the antichrist, and should follow Christ, but the picture of Christ that your writings present is totally
wrong. From your work in this thread, it seems Christ is vengeful against the meek and lowly, against those who are as confused as the rest of us
about what the Book of Revelation is supposed to mean.
Let me make this clear: YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE BOOK OF REVELATION.
It's like Quantum Physics, or 'Way Above Top Secret' military
matters. Anyone who claims to know, does not know. Anyone who talks a big talk, does not know the big picture. Anyone who truly knows, rarely talks
(for fear of misrepresenting the plans of the Almighty.)
The Book of Revelation is a quasi-temporal/spatial/metaphysical work, with multilayered symbolism wrapped in a totally unique,
mathematically/aesthetically encoded 'Alpha & Omega Enigma'. Few (if any) on Earth will ever understand it fully.
Your writings convey a mish-mash of vengeance & hatred, unforgiveness & ignorance as to the state of the world today, and specifically lack any
compassion for the desperate condition of a deliberately broken world system that is geared to fiscally & morally destroy its citizens. Christ is a
great deal more compassionate than you are aware, I promise you. I have had the fearful, awe-inspiring & intensely humbling experience of a personal
visitation from the Lord, and have looked into His eyes (which was too much for me to bear, I cannot even put it into words - the best I have ever
managed is 'terrible compassion'; knowing everything, seeing every wayward & selfish turn of every heart, yet ever-loving & ever merciful - the 'Fear
of the Lord' - in an instant of knowing, His gaze, it's simply too much for the unprepared human to bear.)
Please trust me when I say that the plan of God is exceedingly, abundantly, beyond anything you could ask or even imagine, gracious towards mankind.
There is wisdom in His action, and in His inaction, and all that is required is FAITH. Faith is TRUST - that He is all-wise, all-knowing, all-loving
& all-forgiving. Commitment to seeking His will, and commitment to an expression of His church (as an organised place of fellowship, charity &
prayer) are vital for a proper Christian walk.
Understanding the intricacies of the Book of Revelation? Not so much.
