So we must be as wise as Jesus Christ if we are to battle the devil and his confusion. Because we have to understand the law of grace well enough to
be able to confront the devil when he uses the law of grace against us to try to twist us into making a poor decision. Though when reading about
Jesus, His answers appear to be easy and clear as day. But it's much easier to understand what has already been performed than it is to understand
what you must eventually, or even now, perform.
Now also, everyone needs to keep in mind, that the gentiles were grafted into the tree of the children of Israel when they were still only called
"Jews", and beforehand called Israelites. But the amount of time that has passed since the grafting of the gentiles into the Tree is equivalent to
the amount of time that passed from Abraham until Jesus.
That should make an impact an anyone that understands the Bible at all. Abraham was the promisee and Jesus was the promiser. Now Abraham was the
father of the circumcision, and Jacob, Abraham's grandson, became Israel, and was the beginning of Israel, whose people would eventually take on the
name "Jews", and would inherit the promise from Abraham, to whom the promise was given and the sign of it was the circumcision. Now the wait for
the fulfillment of that promise was about 2000 years, to the time when the Messiah was born and then died, and then overcame to life, and therefore
gave freely the promise to the uncircumcised in the flesh, but the circumcised in the spirit, by the power of the Holy Spirit. And since the
manifestation of Jesus Christ, it has been about 2000 years. So therefore, you can see there has been enough time for the spirit of antichrist to
manifest into a monster. And so it has.
Concerning the cross, the "image of the cross" means absolutely nothing. It is just an image. Who are you to call wrong a silly image that one may
innocently find in their spirit as a reminder to what they should keep in mind? For the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. But if the eyes or
the ears are reminded by means of a symbol to think again on that which is good, then the symbol is good, not bad. Now if one begins to worship that
image, or to attribute life to the image, then that becomes an idol. There is no "fine line", as one put it. For if one has attributed any power
at all to the image, then they have already crossed the line. Now there are those that fear that symbol, because, ironically, they attribute power to
that symbol by means of their fear of the symbol, or their fear of the shape of the symbol, or their fear of the depth of the symbol, or their fear
even of its representation; that to fear something is to attribute to it some kind of power (though they claim to not believe in what the symbol is
claimed to represent, therefore the irony). You know this is true, because "under God" is removed from the "Pledge of Allegiance"; if there were
no God to fear, then why the worry? Or see how Bibles are burned worldwide. If a silly book means nothing, then why the need to burn it? Or how
people fear a cross on a necklace, or even a crucifix, for that matter -- if that cross represents Christianity, and Christianity is silly and wrong,
then why the need to fear the symbol? How can you be afraid of that which does not exist?
Now God does not fear. But God is jealous of humanity, for He loves the world, and has saved His children. So when anyone attributes power where
there is no power, God feels the same as you might feel if you were to be in charge of a grand project, like the writing of a song, or a book, or the
building of a skyscraper; and then when all the work is said and done, not only do you not get paid what you had hoped, but also all the credit was
given to others out of vainglory, jealousy, weakness, perversion, favors, or whatever other reason. Now God is more forgiving than we are. That
would tear us apart, and if we had power, we might react. Now this tears God apart, but He does not always react, for He has offered grace to His
Now there are those that are preordained from the foundation of the world to death and hell. If you cannot handle that God is the Creator and has
every right to make whatever decision He chooses, then you are on the side of the devil. God is love, and knows what is best for everyone, much more
than any of us with our extremely feeble minds and misjudgments. You cannot enter life without faith. If you don't have it, then it isn't given to
Now the government of the Jews was strict. So when the Christians were teaching, they would be stoned and mutilated for their witness. Now, still to
this day, there are Christians everywhere that are imprisoned, beaten, murdered, and tortured, every single day - to this very day. But this is not
yet that time of trouble. You see, the government of the antichrist is very great, but its government is different in its strictness.
