FOR ALL CHRISTIANS OUT THERE:
We should be loving each other.
We should not be crucifying each other. And certainly not concerning silly things like food, days, and drink.
Ugh. Have we not gotten any wiser at all? That we are in this world and the things of this world do not pertain to the Spirit.
But we are of the Spirit, though we are in this world; and we are justified by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
So then, why find a reason for fault?
Why cause other to stumble?
And also, you might say, "But Paul says that if we say you should eat herbs, and yet you eat meat, then you eat as if in offense to us."
We mean you no offense.
NO CHRISTIAN THAT BELIEVES IN THE LORD IS EATING MEAT TO SPITE YOU. IT'S NOT HAPPENING.
NO CHRISTIAN THAT FELLOWSHIPS ON SUNDAY IS DOING IT TO SPITE THE LORD; NEITHER TO SPITE YOU. IT'S NOT HAPPENING.
It's a serious delusion to think so. It's severe paranoia to the extreme. (I know from experience).
That being said; because we know the Lord is true, and righteous, and just, He is also merciful and full of grace. And He cares not just about the
people who have the freedom to follow silly rules; but He also cares about the poor and the afflicted, and those without that ability.
Who needs Jesus Christ more? Those who are sick, and must eat meat given to them, and have nowhere to lay their heads; and have to dig for food and
drink on the sabbath day?
Or those that can buy their food and their drink fresh and organic, and have comfort in their homes, and can take any day off that they please?
If you didn't answer, "BOTH", then you're wrong.
Knowing the Lord's mercy and His grace, JUST THIS LITTLE PIECE OF KNOWLEDGE, completely rewrites and destroys most prophecies written and supposedly
understood by denominations which hold esteem (or hold it not) in days, food, drink, or whatever else silliness that is not commanded, and hasn't
Jesus Christ is our Sabbath; and He is the seal by which we are sealed with the seal of the Living God.
Not a silly day. Our 6pm Friday to 6pm Saturday is not the seal of the living God. It's not happening.
This throws over half of all seventh-day end time prophecies completely out the _
Do I agree with the pomp and arrogance of the Roman Catholic Church? Oh, absolutely not. I can't stand it.
Do I deny many of the atrocities that have taken place? No way!
Do I think that both seventh-day AND ALSO Sunday Christians are getting prophecy way wrong?
Oh yeah. Definitely.
If the Lord is merciful with me, then the Lord will, I hope, reveal through me a little bit of prophecy to you; nothing new, and only that which has
already been said; but it can be revealed in a light which you have not seen it before, and yet it will be understood very easily because it is very
simple and the Lord Jesus Christ said these things even as He walked the earth, and they are recorded in the gospels.
Jesus Christ gave us many of the keys to Revelations in His gospels; and He said them very easily. And many of these sayings are going under the
radar because we have a tendency to read Revelations, and other dramatic prophecies, and to see them as complex.
Revelations is not just given to those who are capable of reading entire history books and encyclopediae.
Revelations is also given to the simple (though, the simple of our time are definitely learned compared to those of the time of Jesus Christ indeed -
and yet, ironically, the learned of our time are way more foolish and possess a lot less common sense than the SIMPLE of Jesus' time! How
interesting, don't you think?)
So Revelations is understood through the Bible itself; and the keys thereof are revealed as the Lord opens our eyes. He has hidden in plain sight
messages that we have missed many times.
I have witnessed this a couple of times... and it is shocking to me everytime. "How in the world could I possibly have missed that. That's simple
beyond simple." And yet, the Lord is awesome. SO AWESOME.
I am quick. I was given a uniquely sharp mind.
All my intelligence has done for me, in the long run, is nothing! The Lord gave it to me for a reason, but sometimes I still don't understand
But I do know that also I am a fool to many people, because the things that I see and the things that I say are like foolishness to people. So
because of this, maybe it is better to say that the Lord made me simple.
At any rate, there are a few things He has revealed to me, and they are simple, and easy to understand for the simple, that salvation is learned from
everybody, all people alike; and not just the learned, as we might think.
If it is His will, and if He is merciful to me, which I do not deserve at all, then I will share a couple of these things with you so that your eyes
are opened are you are able to see a little more clearly.
