The Arrogance of Man and
the Ignorance of the Sheeple
I've learned over the last seven years of intense Bible study, day and night more than I had learned in the 21 years of previous study, cumulatively. Before these past seven years, I was the typical, spoon-fed New Testament Christian. I was a carport. I broached that topic in a previous blog. Then, the bottom fell out in my life and I was dying from the inside out. The only way to survive was to go back to the beginning and start studying GOD’s Word all over again, but differently than the previous 21 year.
GOD brought me through the Old Testament, cover to cover to show me just how wrong I had been taught for 21 years in the church, and how to properly read prophecy according to His prophetic terms and not according to man's. I have learned so much about the history and prophecy, because He put me in there in every character’s role. He helped me find characters who could help me get through this devastating time, by studying what they did. I learned about people in the Bible that I had never heard of in my 21 previous years of consistent studying. There are quite a few that really fascinate me, but none more than Zerubbabel. Every time I ask a pastor, about Zerubbabel’s prophecy, they don't know what I'm talking about. I think GOD has purposely hidden that from today’s clergy and Bible teachers. I can’t begin to explain why, but I have Scripture to support that.
I believe that much of OT prophecy to the kingdoms of the Northern Tribe of Israel, and the southern tribe of Judah, are symbolic and foretelling of the church. If you really study that time period of about 400 years, you will see the church age in living color. I will go more into detail of that on a later blog. It’s truly quite fascinating how the kings seems to foreshadow some spiritual giants of the latter days. What I learned is that If it happened in the natural in the OT, then it happens in the latter days, but on a spiritual level and on a global scale. It’s called typology. So, I believe that today’s clergy and yesterday’s Bible scholars and Bible commentators have missed something big, and not because they were in the wrong, but because they did not live long enough to observe GOD’s working with His people, and I believe that GOD purposed to hold back revealing it. Isaiah 48 explains this, among other verses, but Isaiah 48 is the best example. Imagine, this is the latter days, and GOD is speaking to the apostate church.
48 “Hear this, O house of Jacob, who are named Israel, and who came forth from the loins of Judah, who swear by the name of the Lord, and, invoke the God of Israel, but not in truth nor in righteousness.2 “For they call themselves after the holy city, and lean on the God of Israel; The Lord of hosts is His name.3 “I declared the former things long ago, and they went forth from My mouth, and I proclaimed them. suddenly I acted, and they came to pass.4 “Because I know that you are obstinate, and your neck is an iron sinew, and your forehead bronze,5 Therefore I declared them to you long ago, before they took place I proclaimed them to you..,
.’6 “You have heard; look at all this, and you, will you not declare it? I proclaim to you new things from this time, even hidden things which you have not known. 7 “They are created now and not long ago; and before today you have not heard them, so that you will not say, ‘Behold, I knew them.’8 “You have not heard, you have not known. Even from long ago your ear has not been open, because I knew that you would deal very treacherously; and you have been called a rebel from birth.9 “For the sake of My name I delay My wrath, and for My praise I restrain it for you, in order not to cut you off.
There are a majority of GOD’s people who do not even know the true history of GOD’s people from a chronological standpoint. I know this because I was an avid student of the Word, but it wasn’t until I was 20+ years old in the LORD, before I really started studying it. Most people have no idea who Zerubbabel is. Almost ALL Christians cannot put the major and minor prophets in chronological order, and to whom they were speaking and what was the historical context that that prophet’s message.
Isn't that so sad? It’s tragic. Isaiah 29:
5 But the multitude of your enemies will become like fine dust,And the multitude of the ruthless ones like the chaff which blows away; and it will happen instantly, suddenly…,
Thus the multitude of all the nations will be who wage war against Mount Zion.9 Be delayed and wait, blind yourselves and be blind; they become drunk, but not with wine, they stagger, but not with strong drink.10 For the Lord has poured over you a spirit of deep sleep, He has shut your eyes, the prophets; and He has covered your heads, the seers. 11 The entire vision will be to you like the words of a sealed book, which when they give it to the one who is literate, saying, “Please read this,” he will say, “I cannot, for it is sealed.” 12 Then the book will be given to the one who is illiterate, saying, “Please read this.” And he will say, “I [ cannot read.”13 Then the Lord said,
“Because this people draw near with their words and honor Me with their ]lip service,but they remove their hearts far from Me, and their reverence for Me consists of tradition learned by rote,14 Therefore behold, I will once again deal marvelously with this people, wondrously marvelous; and the wisdom of their wise men will perish, And the discernment of their discerning men will be concealed.”
Now, that is from Isaiah 29, but you could almost say it’s the majority of the church today. Traditions of men, I’m not talking Roman Catholicism, here, I’m talking, getting up every Sunday morning, sitting quietly, spectating a finely choreographed “worship” service by an incorporated entity call “a church.” I have written much of this in my blog posts. The vastness of Biblical illiteracy is the nutrient deficiency along with other "cancers" which have literally killed the body of Christ. It's scary and dangerous just how many people will blindly follow a "leader" who is widely known as a prophet by the masses but a FRAUD by GOD. I've gotten into it with some of the hypnotized sheeple in the church, and they are lost as the deluded MSM victims, brainwashed into believing the lies they see on "TV."
Now, some of you may be thinking that I’m a trouble maker, upsetting the status quo, and I have heard that by many pastors here in my small town. I once had a pastor who actually said to me, “I’ve heard all about you in our ministerial association meetings, and I was advised to keep an eye on you, because you were a trouble maker.” No, kidding, a pastor here said that to me, and he said it while I was battling cancer. At first I was very hurt, after that, I just got MAD! I am NOT a trouble maker. What they hate is that I’m an independent thinker. I’m not a sheeple. (a new term coined by QPatriots and QAnon) You can assume what that word means. I’m not going to sit politely and pretend that the man up in that pulpit has all the answers, and I’m to believe every word he says, because he’s the expert.
My daughter is graduating this year, and she got a senior class superlative. I am so proud of her for that. It’s not what most parents would be proud of, but me, I am thrilled because she’s a chip off the old block. She got Most Opinionated! WOW! Now, I take that as a compliment in my parenting. She’s a strong woman who stands her ground. She doesn’t back down and follow the crowd, she thinks for herself. That’s my girl! Hence, pastors do not like me, and quite frankly, for the most part, the feeling is quite mutual.
So, here is where I am going to get very controversial. Based on the above Scriptures, plus multiple others, and the historicity of GOD’s dealing with His people, I see the Glory of the LORD is leaving the Church, as He did when He left the Tabernacle in Shiloh, the Temple in 586 BC and the Temple again in AD 70. I think Revelation is clear on that when the letters to the seven churches were written. They were written to real churches, and they were written in such a way to describe the church age down through history.
We know now that they were prophetic, but I highly doubt that John knew that these letter would describe two thousand years of a church age. Most of them had no idea that the church age would last 2,000+ years. I believe that we have long been in the Laodician age, and that the mere fact that there were only two churches Jesus did not find fault with, simply proves my Remnant theory. GOD’s hand of blessing is moving away from the church and will be blessing and working through the Remnant. The Remnant will gather a harvest of disciples, not converts, but be true to the Great Commission to “Go and MAKE disciples teaching them to OBSERVE all that I have commanded.” Let’s observe the original Greek:
Note the different wording than what we learned. So many translations have corrupted the original intent. Now, I’m NOT against different translations, I’m all for them, but when it comes to finding out the original intent, a serious Bible student will always go back to the original language for more details and a better interpretation. Based on the history of GOD’s people, I see a definite pattern repeating itself. Ecclesiastes is clear on the fact that there is nothing new under the sun that GOD has not already done. The problem is man, not GOD.
The church is so obsessed with the accepted church age timeline that she has her head up her butt, just waiting for the Rapture, and almost seemingly excited about the Tribulation period for all those sinners out there to taste the wrath of GOD. Pardon my expression, but there is no other way to describe it. They are not watching for the Remnant. The church is arrogant, mostly bullies, and obstinate, just like Scripture says. If it’s not in a commentary by the scholars, then, it’s not accurate. How DUMB is that? What were the commentators, but, mere mortals who didn’t live long? Only by actually living through history will knowledge increase, and wisdom for the wise. We have a hundred or more years of history of living through than the commentators. We have seen more, the more we see, the more we see a pattern.
Now, go with me here for a minute. Raise your hand if you think for one minute that GOD will let arrogant, mortal man, full of sin and pride to predict His next move? Haven’t we tried that before and failed? Did the Northern Kingdom Israel see the Assyrians coming in to conquer them? Did Judah see Babylon coming for them, even though they were told? (Habakkuk, Isaiah, Jeremiah) Heck no!. The prophets did, but did they believe them? NOPE! So, say there were 450 false prophet for every one true prophet. (1 Kings 17-19, 1 Kings 22) Let’s take this on a global scale. If there were a couple of million people at best, and that’s an exaggeration, in GOD’s nation only, I’m talking the Jews, and there were approximately 450 false to one real one, then, let’s assume there is about 4 billion Christians in the world. Can anyone do the math for how many false (or mistaken) prophets/teachers there might be to one who authentically anointed and appointed of GOD?
Now, I’m not about to go and point out any false ones, it’s not my place to do it, nor anyone else’s. GOD did not put us here to point fingers. I know, Scripture say to rebuke and correct, yes, but in our own congregations, on a personal level, not to get all up in YouTube and start pointing out fault with every teacher with which we disagree. It’s not my place to call out a Joel Osteen, for instance, nor, is it anyone else’s except in his small circle of advisors and the Holy Spirit. I don’t know about you, but, I don’t’ recall anywhere in Scripture where it said that Jesus needs to take a coffee break from the Judgment Seat of Christ, and says to anyone else, “Here, have a seat and take over for me while I have a smoke and a cup of coffee.” There are two judgment seats, one is called the Judgment seat of Christ and one is the Great White Throne Judgment seat. The latter is in the book of Revelation, whereas the former is in the book of Romans and 1st Corinthians
Now, go find them and read all the verses surrounding them. Remember what I said. I will not spoon feed my readers, I will send you to the source to learn it yourself. So, stop here and do that.., I’ll wait.
I have much more to write on this topic, however, my blogs are written on a "Divinely Inspired" time-table. I can only write when I feel the nudge from the Holy Spirit. Go, dig and research for yourself. If you believe I’m wrong, feel free to email me, and state your opinion. It is not my place to call out false teachers, it’s my job to show my readers how to find and dig for the truth, like QAnon brought out the researchers in the QPatriots.
