ANGELIC RULERS OVER THE EARTH.

 

ANGELIC RULERS OVER THE EARTH.

bible-21          “The great tribulation”

In order to understand how the great tribulation upon the earth comes about we need background information. We have been shown by Daniel in chapter 12v1-3, the tribulation will be very great and will be a one-off disaster never to be repeated ever again.

We also have the account in Mark chapter 13v19-20 which says “For those days will be a time of tribulation such as has not occurred since the beginning of the creation which God created until now, and never will. Unless the Lord had shortened those days, no life would have been saved; but for the sake of the elect, whom He chose, He shortened the days”.

If this tribulation is to be the “greatest disaster since the creation”, this indicates it will be even greater than the flood of Noah’s day. But, in comparison to that time, Noah was the tenth in line from Adam so the earth’s population would have been a lot smaller than it is now. The tribulation will be a one-off tribulation and we are promised it will never happen ever again.

This gives us an insight as to the severity of the tribulation in the last days and also it gives us faith that as our lord is concerned about “saving” lives, we can be assured it will not be him that is instigating the tribulation upon the human family as Jehovah’s witnesses preach. There is very little difference between Jehovah’s witnesses and the Islamic State, they both want to rule the earth under their terms, with them as the sole survivors, but it will not happen. Neither of these religions will rule the earth.

When our Lord’s adversary destroyed the wonderful creation of the earthly family in the beginning through envy and jealousy, he became known as “Satan”, meaning resister and he was also labelled as “the liar” the first lie was told by him. “You positively will not die if you eat off the tree”. He may have thought, why molly-coddle these humans when they should be thinking for themselves as to what is right and wrong. I could make a better job than this.

The angels had knowledge of what was right and wrong, so he may have thought, why not man? The tree was called “the knowledge of good and bad”, so Satan encouraged Eve to eat from that tree. Genesis chapter 3v4, 5, 22-24. Of course as the angels had this knowledge of right and wrong it made it inexcusable when he lied to Eve. This was a deliberate act to sabotage the human creation under our lord.

From that time onwards the earthly family came under him, Satan, and Adam and Eve were turned out of their lovely home that had been prepared for them under our lord, now to be cared for by Satan instead of our lord, who now became the over-lord, or god of the earth. He even had the cheek to offer the kingdoms of the earth to our lord Jesus when he came to the earth, if he did just one act of worship to him.   (Luke chapter 4v5-14)

download (2)Thus proving the kingdoms over the earth really did belong to him. Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News about the Christ. 2nd Corinthians chapter 4v4.

Not long after this, during the days of Jared, the sixth in line from Adam, the father of Enoch, the “sons of God” came down to the earth (Genesis chapter 6v1-14) (according the book of Enoch, 200 came down) and saw the women, how beautiful they were and wanted to have sexual relations with them and they each chose one woman, produced offspring which were called “Nephelim”, made up of both earthly and spirit in nature, they produced a new life form on the earth. So, because of the mixing of the genes, the Nephelim became freaks of nature and were very violent towards the earthly creation, they were very large and powerful and threatened to wipe out the original creation of man replacing them with their own creation on the earth.

Quote from the book of Enoch chapter 10.

And the Lord said unto Michael: ‘Go, bind Semjaza and his associates who have united themselves with women so as to have defiled themselves 12 with them in all their uncleanness. And when their sons have slain one another, and they have seen the destruction of their beloved ones, bind them fast for seventy generations in the valleys of the earth, till the day of their judgement and of their consummation, till the judgement that is 13 for ever and ever is consummated. In those days they shall be led off to the abyss of fire: and 14 to the torment and the prison in which they shall be confined for ever. And whosoever shall be condemned and destroyed will from thenceforth be bound together with them to the end of all 15generations.

End of quote.

According to the book of Enoch the rebel angel’s children the Nephelim would turn on each other and kill each other before the flood showing the condemnation starts before the flood of Noah’s day. ‘Quote, “Proceed against the bastards and the reprobates, and against the children of fornication: and destroy [the children of fornication and] the children of the Watchers from amongst men [and cause them to go forth]: send them one against the other that they may destroy each other in 10 battle: for length of days shall they not have”.

The earth became so filled with their violence that the only way to control them was to bring about a world-wide flood upon the earth, and to select a few righteous souls to survive and to start the family over again. Just one problem with this?

When the flood waters began killing all those that were not in the ark, the Nephilim’s earthly side of their nature, those who were still alive at that time, died in the waters and the spirit side broke out, (like a butterfly breaking out of a chrysalis) hence, they became the evil spirits that were on the earth when Jesus came. They could not go to the earth’s heavens because they were half-breads so as they had been created on the earth they were confined to the earth until judgement day. We are told, Jesus preached to these spirits after his resurrection. (1st Peter chapter 3v18-21)

The fact that Jesus preached to them gives us a clue as to their chance of survival. They would have been given the opportunity to get saved through the blood of our lord, the same gift to the human family as they were partly created from the human family of women.

It was not long after the flood to clean up the earth that it again began to be contaminated by Satan. It was the great grandson of Noah, Nimrod, son of Cush, son of Ham, (Genesis chapter 10v6-15) who tried to separate the people by building a city, the city became known as Babel. (Genesis chapter 11v4-10) In order to stop them building this city and tower, and from isolating themselves away from the rest of the people, our Lord confused their languages so that they could not understand each other and the building work stopped.

The people left the city and travelled with their own people that spoke the same language as they, and so, this is how the earth became divided into different peoples and cultures around the earth today. Each group of people were given their own angelic prince to care for them, that is why it is mentioned by Daniel that Michael was the prince over his people Israel.

It is also interesting that each group took with them the ideas of building towers high into the heavens for worship and today when you look around the earth many of the people have tall towers, which resembles the Babel tower. (Ziggurats)

Even the churches and cathedrals around the earth have the same desire, to have a place of worship high in a city, as a focal point for worship.

Daniel shows that when Gabriel was sent to him, he had to fight his way through these angelic princes who would not allow him to get through to the earth so he had to get Michael to help him. This shows, the angelic princes guard the earth and they are prepared to fight in order to keep what they have. (Daniel chapter 10v12-15, 20)

We are told in God’s word that our lord Jesus is “Lord of the Sabbath” the lord of the seventh day, Peter explains “one day with our lord is as one thousand years” so at the end of six thousand years from Adam, the seventh day begins under our lord Jesus and his kingdom. This day is also called “the day of judgement” the day when new scrolls are opened and people will be judged throughout this day of one thousand years, according to how they obey them. (Revelation chapter 20v12)

We do not know yet what these scrolls will contain but, they will change things on the earth for us, for instance man will not learn war any more and this will be enforced. Also, we shall not continue killing the animals for food or sport, in order to fulfil Isaiah chapter 2v2-5, 11v6-10.

images (6)

It will be just like it was before the flood of Noah’s day when all earthly subjects including the giant mammals were fed on the vegetation of the ground. Man have found proof of this by the melting snow in the ice caps where mammals were unearthed fully preserved with vegetation in their mouths.

These new scrolls will in turn produce a new earth just as Peter tells us in his second letter chapter 2v1-3v1-15. It also shows us that this day of our lord, the judgement will start with the household of God. 1stpeter chapter 4v17. God’s household being his spirit sons who sinned and are confined to the earth.

Daniel was privileged to see a vision of this great battle, war, which he records for us in chapter 10 also in chapter 11 the battle is mainly between the “king of the North” and the “king of the South”. Again, here, we are referring to the angelic ruling ones over the earth.

One needs logic to understand Daniel prophesies, the great war he had a vision of in chapter 10 makes him sick because it is too terrible to comprehend. And in chapter 11 the war is primarily between the king of the North and the king of the South. This is where one needs logic to understand these two kings. North of where? South of where? Let’s try to unravel this mystery. Does it refer in anyway to the ancient city of Jerusalem, as the Americans believe? No! it certainly does not. These two kingdoms are spiritual kingdoms and not earthly kings. 

The Jews are no longer God’s people today, they forfeited this right when they killed God’s son Jesus. Jesus also formed a new people under a new covenant for life, which included both Jews and gentiles. (John chapter 6 also chapter 10v16) fulfilling the laws of Moses and bringing them to a close. So the ancient city of Jerusalem today do not come into the prophesies of the end depicted in Daniel’s book.

Just a few references to this “new covenant” under Jesus instead of Moses. Jeremiah chapter 31v31-34“Behold, the days are coming, declares the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah, not like the covenant that I made with their fathers on the day when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, my covenant that they broke, though I was their husband, declares the Lord. But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the Lord: I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts. And I will be their God, and they shall be my people. And no longer shall each one teach his neighbor and each his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, declares the Lord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.”

In speaking of a new covenant, he makes the first one obsolete. And what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away. Hebrews chapter 8. Making the old covenant with its laws through Moses void.

Therefore he is the mediator of a new covenant, so that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance, since a death had occurred that redeems them from the transgressions committed under the first covenant. Hebrews chapter 9v15.

For if that first covenant had been faultless, there would have been no occasion to look for a second. For he finds fault with them when he says: “Behold, the days are coming, declares the Lord, when I will establish a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah. Hebrews chapter 8v7-8.

The new spiritual Jerusalem today is world-wide just as it was formed by Jesus, when he told the Jews in Jerusalem “your house is abandoned to you” Luke chapter 13v33, Matthew chapter 23v38, and he will destroy the temple in the city and raise it up in three days anew. Here Jesus was talking about a spiritual temple   that he will raise up in the resurrection of the bride class those that make up his body. (John chapter 2v13-23.)

This is also confirmed by what Jesus told the Samaritan woman at the well, she was enquiring about the correct place one should worship and he told her recorded for us in John chapter 4v20-26 The time is coming when you will not be worshipping in either Jerusalem or this mountain because people will worship in spirit and truth. In order to worship in spirit, means no particular place of worship such as Jerusalem or the mountain in Samaria.

When we consider the areas of the angelic rulers, the earth and the earth’s heavens, so logically, this would represent those ruling in the heavens as the NORTH to the earth, and the SOUTH would represent the earth, those ruling on the earth. Does this make sense?

Yes! Really, as Satan made war upon Michael in the earth’s heavens and was defeated and hurled down to the earth with his angels, being restricted now to the earth Revelation chapter   12v7-17 Satan, no longer able to go to the heavens gives all his kingdom and authority in the heavens to another angelic one who will reign over the earth for 42 months. Rev 13v2-10 and it was granted to him to make war upon the saints and to conquer them. Becoming the head of gold in Daniel chapter 2, thus now making him the king of Babylon, the king of the North, in the earth’s heavens.

So after the defeat of Satan, we now have two angelic kings, one in the heavens whom Satan appointed over the angelic kingdoms ruling in the heavens, the king of the north and Satan who was hurled down to the earth represents the king of the south. Eventually these two kings will engage in warfare for the earth. The king of the south’s armies will consist of the nephilim children on the earth, born of women, who became the evil spirits on the earth and the angelic children born to the angels in the earth’s heavens as making up the army of the king of the north, king of Babylon head of gold.

But until that time, the newly appointed king of the North is the head over all the other angelic kingdoms in the heavens, and he makes war upon the righteous angels that came down with Jesus when he made his inspection visit on the church and separated them as sheep from the goats removing the sheep to a place of safety out of the spiritual city of Jerusalem.

Also too, the now, king of the South, Satan, will be searching out all those righteous angels that are on the earth and all the spirit Nephelim souls that accept the new covenant under Jesus after he preached to them. This will last for the duration of the reign of the new king appointed by Satan who will reign for 42 months only.

As the 42 months comes to a close, the stone will smash the feet of the angelic kingdoms over the earth which includes all the kingdoms under the head of gold, the king of Babylon, the king of the North, hurling the king and all the rebellious angels down to the earth. Now, joining Satan here on the earth and bringing the conflict of the two kings right down upon the earth as shown by Daniel in chapter 11.

images (16)

The stone represents the kingdom of our lord, and the Sabbath day of one thousand years begins with the judgement on God’s household, his angelic ones. The heavens have now been cleansed and all the rebellious angels have been hurled down to the earth. Revelation chapter 12v12. Woe for the earth, the devil is now very angry as Revelation chapter 19v11-21 shows.

images (30)

All the angelic rulers have now been hurled down to the earth to join Satan and they will fight each other to control the earth as the kings of the North and South on the earth just as chapter 11 of Daniel shows, eventually they will amalgamate their forces to war against our lord who will come with his armies. Eventually they will all gather together to the place called Armageddon for the final outcome where they will all meet their death. (Revelation chapter 16v16)

The earth’s heavens are now under our heavenly father who will open up the way for our lord and his armies to come to the earth for the great judgement day upon God’s own household.

These rebellious spirit sons will cause a great tribulation on the earth and upon its inhabitants and cause us great distress and according the prophesies of Enoch, they will even use the humans on the earth to carry out their atrocities just as their god Satan did and still does. 

As for the evil spirits entering into people, this is not new for even Satan, their god, has been doing this from the very beginning, after he took over the earth and its subjects by influencing people’s thoughts with mind control, or another way of explanation, “brain-washing”.

Jesus told his apostles recorded in John chapter 14v30, Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me”. What did Jesus mean by this saying? He was explaining to them that as the prince was coming (Satan) he could not do anything to Jesus because he had not been born of the human race that was under Satan. His embryo was transferred into a woman, which acted like an incubator only and did not pass on any of the imperfect traits of man. So Satan could not possibly affect Jesus mind or thoughts.

We have two main examples of Satan’s work recorded for us. Luke chapter 22v3, and John chapter 13v27. This example shows how Satan entered into Judas Iscariot who was one of the twelve disciples, twice, the first time prompting him to betray Jesus, and the second time to arrange to meet up with Jesus in one of his favoutirite spots that he knew and to take the Jewish leaders with him. Jesus said to Judas, What you are going to do, do it quickly, then Satan entered into Judas and he left the room”.

The second account is recorded in Luke chapter 22v31-34, Jesus tells Peter, “Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift each of you like wheat. But I have pleaded in prayer for you, Simon that your faith should not fail. So when you have repented and turned to me again, strengthen your brothers”.

Peter said, “Lord, I am ready to go to prison with you, and even to die with you” But Jesus said, “Peter, let me tell you something. Before the rooster crows tomorrow morning, you will deny three times that you even know me”.

Our faith in God is unwavering, until it is tested. This was to be the ultimate test for Peter, and Jesus knew that his friend would fail. Although our lord’s words were addressed to Peter it does say Satan has asked to “sift each of you as to wheat” so all the those who make up the body of our lord, the true church, will be tested by Satan.

Just two recorded examples where Satan is said to enter into people to get them to sin against our lord. Just like the time when Jesus was here on the earth when he was able to expel many. We have the account recorded for us in Luke chapter 8v2-4 where Mary Magdalene had seven demons expelled from possessing her, and when Jesus sent out the twelve to preach, he gave them authority to expel these evil spirits too. Then, later he sent out seventy more and gave them authority too. (chapter 10v1, 7) We have read from Daniel how unscrupulous they can be and a great time of distress will come upon the human creation. (Daniel chapter 12v1)

One account can be found in Luke chapter 8v26-38 where a man who was possessed by these evil spirits hung around the tombs harassing everyone and was very violent towards them. Jesus expelled them from the man and later the man was found fully healed, dressed and clean sitting inside the temple fully restored to his right senses. It shows what happens when the evil spirits inhabit humans and becomes parasites, who rely on us, we have been told by Enoch that this is what will happen in the last days causing a great tribulation to come upon us.

I quote from chapter 15v8-12 from the book of Enoch.

8 And now, the giants, who are produced from the spirits and flesh, shall be called evil spirits upon 9 the earth, and on the earth shall be their dwelling. Evil spirits have proceeded from their bodies; because they are born from men and from the holy Watchers is their beginning and primal origin; 10 they shall be evil spirits on earth, and evil spirits shall they be called. [As for the spirits of heaven, in heaven shall be their dwelling, but as for the spirits of the earth which were born upon the earth, on the earth shall be their dwelling.] And the spirits of the giants afflict, oppress, destroy, attack, do battle, and work destruction on the earth, and cause trouble: they take no food, but nevertheless 12 hunger and thirst, and cause offences. And these spirits shall rise up against the children of men and against the women, because they have proceeded from them.

                                    End of quote!

 (These two spirit seeds will be rivals, the Nephelim and the legitimate spirits born of the sons of God and the spirit wives given to them by God. The Nephelim will claim they are superior to their younger rivals because they were produced from the human women of the earth. So they have more right to be here on the earth.)

Eventually not only will these two sets of spirit life forms fight each other on the earth as armies belonging to the king of the North, king of Babylon, the head of gold over all the angelic kingdoms, and the king of the South, Satan, these two spirit seeds now confined to the earth, “the demon spirits”, will engage the services of the human family to bring about a tribulation on the earth to establish a worldwide dominion of the human family, just like the demon spirits that possessed men in the first century when Jesus was on the earth and he expelled them, so too at this time of the end they will again enter into some of the human race to fulfil their purposes to take over the world which we can see right now in certain places on the earth today where extremist groups of Muslims are trying to take over the earth. The supremacy of the world is now at stake between the seed of the Christ and the seed of the Antichrist.

We are so blessed to have our lord fighting for us at this time and we know from God’s word, we will have a righteous kingdom government over us at last.

Only when these evil rebels have been dealt with shall a place be prepared by our lord to have his apostles and others that make up the first resurrection take place, and they will all be reunited with our lord. They will share in his kingdom glory over the earth for the remainder of the one thousand years and see the wonderful transformation take place to produce the new earth. Peace and a paradise will be restored world-wide.

PREPARING THE EARTH FOR GOD’S KINGDOM.

bible-21         CLEANSING THE EARTH! 

 In order for this wonderful new heavens to take over the earth with a new righteous government, changes must take place first. The old system of things which consists of the gentile angelic kingdoms must first be destroyed, just as Daniel chapter 2 shows.

“As you looked a stone was cut by no human hand and it smote the image on its feet of iron and clay, and broke them to pieces, then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold, ALL TOGETHER were broken to pieces” (v34) images (30)“In the day of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed…. It shall break in pieces all these kingdoms and bring them to an end. (v44)

All these angelic kingdoms over the earth as depicted in the image of Daniel chapter two, will be destroyed all together when the stone which represents God’s kingdom takes over their kingdoms.

We know from the prophecy, it refers to the latter days (v28, 32-35, 37, 44-45) and the head of gold represents “the angelic king of Babylon” at the time the stone strikes the image at this time of the end. Note! In the interpretation given to Nebuchadnezzar, Daniel does not name him as the head of gold but addresses it to “the king of Babylon” “You Oh king, the king of kings”… making you rule over them all, you are the head of gold”. (v36-39) Referring to “the king of Babylon” as the head of gold, and as we know at this time of the end Nebuchadnezzar has been dead for nearly 2 ½ thousand years, so the prophecy would not be referring to him. Also Babylon as a city is no more so it must be referring to the spiritual city of Babylon under an angelic king of Babylon.

When God’s kingdom is being set up in the last days these angelic kingdoms will be over the earth but they will all come under the head of gold, “the king of Babylon” as the sovereign ruler over them all, having been appointed and approved by Satan.

Spiritual Babylon fell in 2002 when the messiah was here on his inspection visit to the temple worshippers, which is also the end of the building work on the city. (Daniel chapter 9) Already discussed in this journal.

It shows in 2nd Thessalonians chapter 2 that when our lord appears he will slay the “man of lawlessness” with the sword from his mouth”, (v4 and 8) the sword of the spirit. Thus Jehovah was slain by the holy spirit in 2002, by our lord. Removing him from the city temple for his inspection visit. (Revelation chapter 18v4, 7)

While the 3 ½ years (ending in 2005) Jesus spent with the temple worshippers, separating the sheep from the goats, and removing the sheep to a place of safety, it was during this time Satan takes advantage to wage war upon the righteous angels including Michael, (Revelation chapter 12v7) after losing the war, he is hurled down to the earth defeated utterly he brings up out of the abyss the slain Jehovah restores him and gives him all his kingdom and authority over the earth, especially as he is declaring himself to be almighty God, making him “the king of Babylon”, the head of gold over all the other angelic kingdoms and he will reign for 42 months, which will end in 2009. Thus not just ending the angelic gentile nations over the earth but also ending the prophecy of Daniel chapter 9. 70 weeks of years, 490 years from 1519 CE to 2009. Which have already been covered in this journal.

When the angelic one, Jehovah, becomes the king over the whole of the earth, in 2005 he attacks the angels and the messiah that came down to inspect the bride class even killing some of them, until his reign ends in 2009. The messiah returns to his father at this time and is anointed king over his kingdom. (Revelation chapter 11v1-10, 13v1-9) The Babylonian kingdom will come to an end when the stone smashes the feet of the image and all the angelic kingdoms come to an end all together. Destroying Babylon totally along with all the other angelic kingdoms over the earth.

The city of Babylon fell in 2002 with the slaying of the prince of Babylon, the man of lawlessness from 2nd Thessalonians chapter 2 who has been sitting inside the temple proclaiming to be God, Jehovah, and the city of Babylon was destroyed in 2009 when God’s kingdom stone smashed all the angelic kingdoms together. Revelation chapter 18v21-23. “Then a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea saying, so shall Babylon the great city be brought down with violence and shall be found no more”. Remembering too, the spiritual dramas were written in the first century and this destruction of Babylon the Great is 2 ½ thousand years after the ancient city was destroyed and as such it is referring to the spiritual city of Babylon the Great.

But of course the angels are not going to give up their kingdoms over the earth lightly, they will fight, and this will result in their gathering together to the place called Armageddon, where we are told, they will all be killed.

images (33)    images (34)This war actually started with Satan in 2002 amongst the angels but after the newly appointed king by Satan in 2005 things took a turn for the worst, which had led them to the battle at Armageddon. This in turn will cause a great tribulation upon the earth, we need to remember back 5,000 years ago when the angels came to the earth and caused havoc by having children, called Nephelim. They tried to take over the earth at that time so the flood was brought down to control them.

If we take a look into the prophetic book of Enoch who was the seventh generation from Adam, he foretells certain events that will take place at this time of the end. His book is also quoted a few times in the bible. Now addressing the angels it says: ~

download (8)                         Quote from chapter 15 from the book of Enoch. 

Wherefore have ye left the high, holy, and eternal heaven, and lain with women, and defiled yourselves with the daughters of men and taken to yourselves wives, and done like the children 4 of earth, and begotten giants (as your) sons? And though ye were holy, spiritual, living the eternal life, you have defiled yourselves with the blood of women, and have begotten (children) with the blood of flesh, and, as the children of men, have lusted after flesh and blood as those also do who die 5 and perish. Therefore have I given them wives also that they might impregnate them, and beget 6 children by them, that thus nothing might be wanting to them on earth. But you were formerly 7 spiritual, living the eternal life, and immortal for all generations of the world. And therefore I have not appointed wives for you; for as for the spiritual ones of the heaven, in heaven is their dwelling. 8 And now, the giants, who are produced from the spirits and flesh, shall be called evil spirits upon 9 the earth, and on the earth shall be their dwelling. Evil spirits have proceeded from their bodies; because they are born from men and from the holy Watchers is their beginning and primal origin; 10 they shall be evil spirits on earth, and evil spirits shall they be called. [As for the spirits of heaven, in heaven shall be their dwelling, but as for the spirits of the earth which were born upon the earth, on the earth shall be their dwelling.] And the spirits of the giants afflict, oppress, destroy, attack, do battle, and work destruction on the earth, and cause trouble: they take no food, but nevertheless 12 hunger and thirst, and cause offences. And these spirits shall rise up against the children of men and against the women, because they have proceeded from them.

                                                 End of quote!

This explains that the spirit created ones will be divided between the earth (those born as the Nephelim) and the earth’s heavens (those born of spirit sons and the wives provided for them) One group living on the earth and one group dwelling in the earth’s heavens. Both groups invisible to the humans living here.

It also explains how many people have reported seeing ghosts, they would have seen these ones, but not fully human, cannot completely have a full material body, but would appear as ghosts to us.

These two spirit seeds will be rivals, the Nephelim and the legitimate spirits born of the sons of God and the spirit wives given to them by God. The Nephelim will claim they are superior to their younger rivals because they were actually born on the earth partly human. (According to the prophecies of Enoch)

For those sceptics who do not believe in the prophetic book of Enoch, we still know the spirits of the Nephelim are still here on the earth as they were when Jesus walked on the earth. This surly is proof they exist.

Not only will the two groups of spirit created ones fight each other they will also engage the services of the human family through the two sons of Abraham. (According to Enoch)

The two seeds of earthly man made up of flesh and blood became manifest in the days of Abraham, who’s wife Sarah was barren and she gave her maidservant Hagar to her husband to have relations with her to produce offspring for her. Eventually Sarah gave birth to a son, Isaac.

Ishmael was about 14 years old when Isaac was born and as Isaac got older Sarah realised things were not going to work out in the household when she saw Ishmael making fun of Isaac so she asked Abraham to send Hagar away with her son. Hagar was assured by the angel before her son was born that his descendants would be great (Genesis chapter 16v5-15) and that her son would become the head of nations. Genesis chapter 21v13 says “and I will make a nation of the son of the slave woman also, because he is your offspring”.

So today, we have the two great nations from Abraham, the seed of Ishmael, Arabs and Islam and the seed of Isaac the Jews and Christians, just as Islam descended from the Arabs so too Christians descended from the Jews who rejected the kingdom of God and had his son Jesus killed.

Already the rivalry has been evident, ancient Jerusalem has always been evident as God’s city and people, today the city is divided into three religious nations. Judaism, Christian and Moslem and the dome of the rock stands proudly right in the middle of the city now dominated by the Moslems.

The Dome of the Rock is a 7th-century edifice located in Jerusalem. It enshrines the rock from which Muhammad is said to have ascended to heaven. Already the fight and hatred is on in jerusalem between the Jews and the Moslem’s as the Daily Mail shows.

By engaging the services of the human family’s two rival groups from Abraham these rebellious angels will bring about a tribulation on the earth to establish a worldwide dominion of the human family, so too, at this time of the end they will again enter into some of the human race to fulfil their purposes to take over the world which we can see right now in certain places on the earth today where extremist groups of Muslims are trying to take over the earth. The supremacy of the world is now at stake between the seed of Isaac and the seed of Ishmael, which is the seed of the Christ and the seed of anti-Christians. (According to the book of Enoch)

The rebellious spirit sons of God will not give up their kingdoms over the earth, they will fight to the bitter end, and they will not allow the earth to be taken over by our lord Jesus Christ as king, they will engage in total warfare to eliminate all of our lord’s armies. The war is between our lord Jesus and his army of angels and his rival Satan and his army of angels. It is the war amongst the angels for the supremacy of the earth.

JESUS-VS-SATANNow today, those very rebellious angels are still trying to control the human family by wiping out the Christians, the seed of God’s angelic woman, and replacing them with the anti-Christians, descendants of Ishmael son of Abraham, state of Islam, but they will not succeed because the earth will come under our lord Jesus and his kingdom. Which has been prophesied to take place shortly.

Satan uses the same old tactics he has used from the very beginning when he brainwashed Eve into disobeying her husband to eat from the forbidden tree. This led to their downfall and having to leave their wonderful safe home. This rivalry has continued right through our history.

He encouraged the spirit sons to leave their positions in the high heavens to come to the earth and produce children with the daughters of man, which became the Nephelim. These were giants and Satan tried to use these to wipe out the sons of Adam from which line would produce the seed of the woman, Jesus. With the earth contaminated with another seed, the earth might not produce the seed, Jesus to free mankind from sin and death, which Satan caused.

But, Satan’s plans were thwarted when our God brought about a great flood that covered the earth and destroyed the sons of the angels, the Nephelim. But as we now know the spirit side of their nature left their bodied to die in the waters and survived becoming the evil spirits on the earth today which Jesus met.

Now at this time of the end Satan’s plans are the same, to take over the earth with his seed which will destroy every vestige of Jesus. He will try to destroy Christianity completely.

           Also The Daily Mail printed this article about “The Lord’s Prayer”.

Now for the banning of our lord’s prayer by the cinemas that had agreed to show this one minute advert before the showing of the new film “Star Wars” but because of fear of offending people it was banned from this Christian country. A report from the Daily Mail.

This short advert was to be shown prior to the new “Star Wars” Film which promotes wars and violence something under God’s kingdom would be things of the past. As Isaiah chapter 2v4 shows. “Man will not learn war any more”. So it was very apt for this prayer to be shown at this time.

For two thousand years Christians around the world have been praying for God’s kingdom to come over the earth of man-kind, we need this kingdom. In John chapter 6v30-52 Jesus explains he is the “living bread” that came down from heaven and everyone eating from this living bread, our lord Jesus Christ, will have eternal life. That is how important the words of this prayer really are. “Give us today our daily bread”, Our daily bread is taking in the teachings of our lord Jesus. And he taught us to pray for this kingdom.

CWM RHONDDA GUIDE ME, O THOU GREAT REDEEMER

When I was a young girl one of my fondest memories was, sitting and playing on the sands at a Victorian seaside resort, and every Saturday the Salvation army would march down to the sands playing their instruments and setting up benches on the sand so that people could join them in service. If I had a penny, I would sit on the benches and give them my penny, if not I would sit outside and listen to them. 
One of their favourite Hymns was: ~
Stand up, stand up for Jesus,
Ye soldiers of the cross!
Lift high his royal banner.
It must not suffer loss.
From victory unto victory
His army he shall lead
Till every foe is vanquished,
And Christ is Lord indeed
George Duffield (1818-88)

Now I appeal to every Christian around the earth to unite in worship and stand up for our lord Jesus. He will be our king over God’s kingdom, NOT THE ANTICHRIST’S.
images (23)

It shows in the revelations to the apostle john what will take place at this time when the time of the end produces wars to take place. Chapters 12 and 13.

We know Satan goes to war with Michael and loses the battle and also loses face so that he brings up out of the abyss the defeated prince of Babylon, Jehovah, promoting him over everything and everyone as the “Head of Gold” because people already accepts him as God. Satan now goes after all the righteous angels that came down with the messiah for his inspection visit upon the church, and the newly appointed King of Babylon actually kills some of them. But again his plans were thwarted; Satan could not take over the church at this time because they had been sent into hiding.

Now we are shown Satan will send out a river or flood of waters upon the church of our lord in order to destroy her and replace her with his anti-Christians, but the earth comes to their rescue and swallows the flow of anti-Christians dispersing them instead of keeping them together for strength against the Christians, they are dispersed into different areas instead.

images (35)

This explains today the flood of immigrants, the anti-Christians flooding into Europe from non-Christian countries overwhelming the Christian people with the view to obliterate Christianity, followers of our lord Jesus. This too fails as they dispersed in different areas. Now Satan changes tact and persecutes the true remnant of the bride class on the earth waiting for their lord to come to take them.   Again, he will not succeed in his plans to obliterate Christianity, followers of our lord Jesus. Shortly he will be placed in the abyss himself and be covered over so that he cannot mislead the people anymore.

images (38)

The cleanup is taking place right now and we are going through the tribulation that was foretold.

When the heavens and the earth have been totally cleansed of all those rebel angels, then our lord will prepare a place, come, and take his bride there to be reunited with him.

THE NEW KINGDOM OVER THE EARTH!

bible-21             THE NEW HEAVENS!  

      2nd Peter chapter 3v13.What does it mean a new heavens?

GOD’S KINGDOM under his anointed one the Messiah, Jesus Christ as our new king. This is the “new heavens” Peter was referring to, a new righteous ruling kingdom over us.

For 6 thousand years we have been ruled over by Satan, our lord’s rival and adversary and his angels.
JESUS-VS-SATANWhich we have covered in this journal. Now for the next one thousand years we shall come under God’s kingdom with his appointed Messiah, King Jesus Christ. 

The end of the six thousand years from Adam are referred to by Peter as six days, and the seventh day, the Sabbath day, of one thousand years we shall come under a righteous kingdom government, God’s kingdom, the very kingdom Jesus taught us to pray for. “Let your kingdom come”. 2nd Peter 3v8. Matt 6v9.

We have learned from the bible how a spiritual city of Jerusalem have been built up in order to gather the remaining kingdom seed before the return of our lord who will come and take them to be with him as part of his bride, his body. They will join the resurrected apostles that make up the first resurrection as adopted spirit sons. Daniel chapter 9v23-25. This too has been covered in this journal.

But, that spiritual city in 1931, was given over to spiritual Babylon for 70 years in a parallel to 605 BC and the gathering of the remaining bride of our lord would be born in spiritual Babylon. The city will come under the man of lawlessness, Jehovah. (2nd Thessalonians chapter 2) and eventually will be destroyed in God’s eyes after fulfilling its purpose and a NEW SPIRITUAL CITY emerges at the beginning of the new kingdom. “Heavenly Zion”, or heavenly Jerusalem. This will be the final kingdom over the earth and it will not be passed on to anyone else. Daniel chapter 2v44.

When Jesus left the earth he promised that he would “prepare a place and return and take his apostles to be with him”. (John chapter 14v3) It is logical to assume this will not take place until after the earth and its heavens have been cleansed of all the rebellious wicked spirit ones who have been dominating the earth especially from the time of Noah. (This has also been covered in this journal)

This shows when our lord becomes the king of that seventh day, the Sabbath, which is also referred to as a “judgment day” which Peter tells us, judgment will begin with God’s household his angelic rebellious ones.

This will result in a great war where all the angelic ones will be gathered together by the king of Babylon at the place called Armageddon where they will all be killed. Only when they have all been dealt with, will our Lord prepare a dwelling place for his people, which will then be collected, resurrected and reunited with him. Revelation chapter 16v12-16, 19v19-21.

And we can see in chapter 20v1 onwards, Satan is bound up for a thousand years after which, those that make up the first resurrection will be all raised up as one body and reign with the Christ for the thousand years. Confirming that all the wicked angelic ones from God’s own household will have been dealt with and the earth and heavens cleansed of all of them before the resurrection takes place.

Revelation chapter 21v2-5, 9-15, shows the new city Heavenly Jerusalem, Zion, coming down prepared for the bride of our lord. Even though they are now adopted spirit sons of the father they will not rule over the earth from the high heavens, our father’s abode, but from the earth’s heavens where the angelic ones reigned under Satan.

This heavenly city of Jerusalem shall only contain “spirit adopted sons” and will be placed high up upon one of the highest of mountains. Only spirit sons will be able to enter the city. Confirming this is shown to us in Revelation 5v10 where it shows, they will “reign on the earth”.

The city will also have two groups of heavenly spirit sons living there. This is covered more fully in Revelation chapter 7v1-5, 9-17. Again, this point of interest have already been covered in this journal so I shall just give a quick recap as to these two groups.

This can be best understood by using earthly examples, in any government today, the elected prime minister gathers together his government of helpers and assigns them their own individual tasks. There are a specific number of places to be filled so it is logical to assume a certain number provided to carry out this appointment. So too, with the kingdom government under our lord Jesus.

Jesus, being the “chief corner stone”, the twelve apostles are referred to as the “twelve foundation stones”, of the temple and the others are referred to as “living stones” built up to complete the temple. 1st Peter chapter 2v5-9. You cannot have less stones than required to build the temple of our lord or have too many stones. Each stone represents the different parts of the body of our lord.

In Revelation chapter 7v2-5 it says “the number of those sealed were a hundred and forty four thousand” some think this number is fictitious but it does make sense when referred to an earthly government and the number of body parts that make up our lord. Also this number is only a part of the Israel of God, not all of them, 12 thousand from each tribe selected to serve in the heavenly Jerusalem.

They will serve as “priests” to the rest of those living inside the heavenly city, just as Aaron, Moses brother from the tribe of Levy was chosen as priest for the earthly Israel. Exodus chapter 19v6, revelation chapter 1v6, 20v6.images (24)Then from verse 9 – 17 it shows another group of spirit sons being within his temple in the holy city. This is described as a “great multitude, which no man could number from every nation from all tribes and peoples and tongues standing before the throne and the lamb”. The angel explains to the apostle John, “these are they who have come out of the great tribulation they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the lamb. Therefore they are before the throne of God and serve him day and night within his temple”.

This gives us a wonderful insight as to whom these ones are, it says “they have come out of the great tribulation”. We are told that this tribulation will start at the beginning of our lord’s day of the one thousand years and the judgment starts with the “household of our God” his angelic ones.

When Jesus was here on the earth he met with many who were possessed by evil spirits who entered into men and made them violent and evil, in fact when Jesus asked the name of one he was told his name was “Legion” because there were many of them inside this man, no wonder he was out of control. (Mark chapter 5v6-13)download (7)This is covered more fully in the article “The two principle seeds”. In this journal.

The seed of Satan, the demon spirits, will engage the services of the human family to bring about a tribulation on the earth to establish a worldwide dominion of the human family, just like the demon spirits that possessed men in the first century when Jesus was on the earth and he expelled them, so too at this time of the end they will again enter into some of the human race to fulfil their purposes to take over the world which we can see right now in certain places on the earth today where extremist groups of Muslims are trying to take over the earth. The supremacy of the world is now at stake between the seed of the Christ and the seed of the Antichrist.

We know also that after Jesus had been resurrected by his father, he preached to “the spirits that were in prison bonds on the earth” it is logical by the evidence that some of these evil spirits that Jesus preached to are the same very ones that will be in the heavenly city after putting faith in our lord Jesus and washing their robes clean in the blood of the lamb.

2nd Peter chapter 2v4 shows they will be kept until the Day of Judgment. They will not need a resurrection because they are spirit souls anyway but they will need to be adopted and will make up the new spiritual 12 tribes of Israel who will live in the heavenly city of Zion and they will be judged over by the priests the bride, now spouse, of our lord.

The spouse of our lord (those that make up his body a hundred and forty four thousand) will rule over the newly adopted sons, who now make up “the spiritual 12 tribes of Israel” inside the holy city just as Luke tells us in his book chapter 22v28-30 “You are those who have continued with me in my trials and I assign to you as my father assigned to me, a kingdom, that you may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel”.

People today are very concerned about “global warming” trying to blame everyone and everything but in actual fact, they are just wasting their time because the answer is easy to understand really.

In the beginning of the creation of the human family, the earth was designed to be a paradise worldwide and in order for this to happen the earth would need to be protected from the severe heat and cold with a fairly even temperature everywhere. This has already been recorded in this journal but to make a quick recap of events, the water that covered the earth when the hot gasses cooled, formed a water vapour, water droplets, just like a saucepan of boiling water, then the waters were divided into two, half made the seas that we have today and the other half was used as a water canopy, (Genesis chapter 1v6-10) a thick blanket of water vapour over the earth to protect the earth. Like a thick cloud, an umbrella over the earth.

Then when man became so bad on the earth mainly due to the rebellious angels that came down to the earth, the water canopy was loosed upon the earth, causing a worldwide flood. Now the earth was open to the elements causing severe heat and cold depending on the position of the sun, hence the north and south poles that froze over very quickly. In fact it was so quickly frozen over that mammals have been found still eating.

There is ample proof of this transformation of the earth where animals have been uncovered in the thick snow and ice, fully preserved, which has now been melting slowly with vegetation still in their mouths, showing a rapid freeze must have occurred.article-2124991-12775A2A000005DC-298_634x339

p02b1cqbWhat is also very interesting is, the fact that the melting thick ice which uncovered these mammals, show that every creation alive on the earth before the flood, ate the vegetation of the earth, even the very large mammals.   This is an indication that in the new earth we too shall go back to eating the produce of the land once again, even the wild animals will eat the vegetation of the land.

If we take a short stroll down through history we shall see that before the flood, neither man nor animals ate any flesh. But with the flood waters covering the earth for five months (Genesis chapter 7v18-24) the vegetation would not be any good for food, this could have been one of the reasons Noah was instructed to take seven of each of the certain animals into the ark, so that he would have food and to be able to offer sacrifices to God. It was only from this time that flesh was eaten and used in sacrifices. (Genesis chapter 9v1-8)

So logically thinking then, if the earth is going to become a worldwide paradise under the kingdom of the Christ, we would need to be at peace with all the animals. No more killing for food and eventually the animals would not fear man and become friends.

This has already been prophesied to take place in Isaiah chapter 11v6-9 where it shows, “The wolf shall dwell with the lamb and the leopard shall lie down with the kid, and the calf and the lion and the fatling together, and a little child shall lead them.3010323444_2m4sins_xlargeThe cow and the bear shall feed their young shall lie down together and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. The suckling child shall play over the hole of the asp and the weaned child shall put his hand on the adder’s den.downloadThey shall not hurt or destroy in all my holy mountain for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the lord as the water cover the sea”.images (2)

images (4)This actually took place where Elsa, the lioness was loved and cared for by Joy Adamson, who were filmed together as friends.

                          PROOF THIS CAN BE ACHIEVED.

Now the ice is slowing melting and warming up again ready to replace the canopy over the earth so that the kingdom of our lord to produce a worldwide paradise as the earth will need a constant even temperature.

So all the scientists today that are trying to find out answers are just wasting their time, the answer is, the water canopy will need to be replaced over the earth in order to produce a wonderful paradise earth. It is our heavenly father that will replace the canopy. That is why the ice caps are slowly melting.

With the paradise restored worldwide with perfect people at the end of the reign of our lord Jesus, Satan will be set loose again who when free will gather as many rebellious angels together to surround and attack the holy city new heavenly Zion, but fire comes down to consume them all. We will then enjoy the wonderful earth that Adam could have enjoyed had he not disobeyed our lord’s tenancy agreement to living in a wonderful home.   images (28)                                 ********************************************

IDENTIFYING THE SPIRITUAL CITY OF JERUSALEM

bible-21      IDENTIFYING THE SPIRITUAL CITY OF                                                        JERUSALEM IN THE LATTER DAYS!

I have stated in this journal that our heavenly father will use just one religious group on the earth in the latter days to gather all the remaining kingdom heirs, those that make up the body of our lord, his bride, his church, which will be built up upon him as the chief corner stone, and his apostles as the 12 foundations stones. He is a God of order after all.

Just as he used only one religious group, the Israelites, to prepare the way for the coming of the messiah in the first century with the city of their God being Jerusalem, so it is logical to assume he will use just one religious group in the latter days to gather the remaining kingdom seed together and to prepare them for the second coming of the messiah.

But, this time, it will be the “restoring and building” a spiritual city which was set up in 36 CE with a new people under the Christ made up of both Jews and Gentiles making them both one new people Christians. (Acts chapter 11v26)

So, which religious group today is built upon Daniel chapter 9v24-27 the “new restored spiritual city of Jerusalem”?

There are guidelines to help us for instance: ~

1st.       People will be guided to the New Jerusalem through a preaching work just like the apostles did.

2nd.   There would be an education program in place to teach people God’s word to replace the scribes who taught God’s word such as mentioned in Matthew chapter 13v47-52 “therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like a householder who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old”.Yes! Trained for the kingdom, not during the kingdom after it has been set up, but trained to teach for the coming kingdom. Matthew shows scribes will be trained for this teaching work through the holy spirit they will use the old teachings and new teachings that the holy spirit reveals to them for the building up of a spiritual temple of our lord.

images (1)We know the prophesy will start with a decree from our father in 1519 CE (the restoring for 7 weeks-49- years) and then the building work will start around 1568 and continue until 2002 CE leaving just seven years to complete the prophesy and as we know the people and the teachings in ancient Jerusalem changed over the years because they added many laws to their written laws, so too the new spiritual Jerusalem will change over the years too because of the apostates that will take over the city.

It has also been prophesied that the new spiritual city would become corrupt just like the ancient city of jerusalem, and the “light of the truth” will turn to darkness so that all those inside the city will be blinded by Satan to the truth of God’s word in the latter days.

We also know the new spiritual city will have no boundary walls it will be world-wide just as Zechariah’s first two chapters show. “Jerusalem will be inhabited as villages without walls, because of the multitude of men and cattle in it for I will be to her a wall”. (Verses 4,5) This also explains how the city will have no fence around it, without a   name of identification, this will be explained later.

But we are told in Isaiah chapter 11v10-13 “He will raise an ensign for the nations and will assemble the outcasts of Israel”. This promise for an ensign to guide ones to spiritual Israel is something to look for to help us. The ensign could not be the “cross” because all Christians have the cross, so it would be something different but recognisable also. 

In the 19th century many new religious groups were springing up in the USA some of these fitted the requirements, preachers, education programs etc. out of all these groups one stands out by their literature “ZION’S WATCH TOWER” heralding Christ’s presence with mankind. Note the cross of our lord with a crown as representing the kingdom of Jesus Christ.8551_900Zion being a name for Jerusalem, heavenly or spiritual Jerusalem.  Romans chapter 11v26 says “the deliverer will come from Zion”,   Matthew chapter 21v5 “tell the daughters of Zion behold your king is coming to you”.  Hebrews chapter 12v22 says “but you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living god, the heavenly Jerusalem”.  Zion stands for heavenly Jerusalem. True! Jerusalem also had watch towers around the walls of the city which guarded the people inside and as this picture shows the light is pointing us to Zion the holy city.

I believe this was the “ensign” predicted to guide us to Zion’s spiritual city of jerusalem.

This religious group became legal in 1884 as Zion’s Watch Tower and herald of Christ’s presence. The people were called “Bible students”. The one taking the lead in the building work at that time was Charles Russell. He sent out preachers and a study program was set up to help people prepare for the coming of the messiah. . http://westonbabe.livejournal.com

He was a humble man and he was not a man who dominated all the teaching work himself, because he encouraged others to make contributions to the teaching program. He believed that others also had Holy Spirit and could help with the teaching. Some of his teachings at that time were very sound compared to the bible’s teachings but of course he was swayed at times to learn from others about the return of our lord and was sidetracked, he then got a lot of things wrong too. You can read any of these articles in Zion’s Towers by going into Zion’s WT 1879-1914.pdf open in – adobe Reader.

It is of interest when I mentioned my thoughts on this group as being the spiritual Jerusalem for the latter days in my opinion, the reaction was, “no way” because Russell got a lot of things wrong. Also our lord’s adversary Satan, tried to stop the righteousness of Charles Russell from being used to guide us to this spiritual city of Jerusalem, when all sorts of controversies took over.  Claims were made that he used “masonic emblems” and he has been buried underneath a stone pyramid, also a masonic image. I would like to point out here that I did my own research on this and found very interesting things which I would like to share with you at a later time.

Also, when one remembers he died in 1916 and there was still another 86 years left for the completion of the city build so there was still many years for developing the cities teachings. There were enough truths taught at that time to establish and make the group legal.

Charles knew the religious groups on the earth today were wrong to put fences around them dividing one group of Christians from another group, such as the Catholic’s or the Church of England, Methodists, etc, because as it shows in 1st Corinthians chapter 1v10-18 where the apostle Paul says,

“I appeal to you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree and that there be no dissensions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment. For it has been reported to me by Chlo’e’s people that there is quarreling among you, my brethren. What I mean is that each one of you says, “I belong to Paul,” or “I belong to Apol’los,” or “I belong to Cephas,” or “I belong to Christ.”? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul? I am thankful that I baptized none of you except Crispus and Ga’ius;  lest any one should say that you were baptized in my name. (I did baptize also the household of Steph’anas. Beyond that, I do not know whether I baptized any one else.) For Christ did not send me to baptize but to preach the gospel, and not with eloquent wisdom, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power”. RSV

So all those religions that had fences around them,dividing one group of christians from another, such as Catholics, Methodists etc would certainly not make up the restored religious city that would be used in the building of this new spiritual city.

Besides the name of this group, “bible students” belonging to Zion’s Watch Tower, which will guide people to heavenly or spiritual Jerusalem, what other signs did they give to show it is a city of spiritual values? Following the teachings of our lord Jesus and his apostles? Take a look at a few of the teachings with me.

Zion’s Tower Feb 1884.  OUR NAME. The early bible students did not approve of having fences around the groups of Christians but just to be called after the Christ, their founder and owner, CHRISTIANS. Just as the apostle Paul has already told us. Acts chapter 11v26 shows” and in Antioch the disciples were for the first time called Christians”.

Zion’s May 1880.  THE SIGN OF HIS PRESENCE. To prepare ones for his return which the churches at that time were not doing.

 Zion’s August 1881, October 1883. A Call to the Ministry. Who may preach?  Jesus shows it is only those whose names are written down in heaven that make up his body, his bride. Luke chapter 10v1-17, says, “After this Jesus appointed 70 others and sent them out,,, the 70 returned with joy,,, but Jesus said, rejoice that your names are written in heaven”. Again Zion’s Tower points out that to preach God’s word one would have to be sent out and have holy spirit. Ephesians chapter 4v11,12, “Some would be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and teachers”. Not all with the same gifts of holy spirit.

Zion’s September 1887. Explaining Acts 15v28. Showing no food or blood is forbidden or unclean to eat. This article also explains how the letter came about in Acts chapter 15 forbidding certain foods from the Mosaic laws, that, is was just to pacify the Pharisee converts because they were jealous of the gentiles receiving the same gifts from Jesus. We are NOT under any of the laws of Moses today as Christians, we come under the christ as free people.

images (11)      images (22)

These are just a few of the teachings from Zion’s Watch Tower which were accurate according to the teachings of Christ.    http://biblebrain.livejournal.com

I believe this religious group fits all the right conditions stated in God’s word for it to represent the “spiritual city of Jerusalem” today. 

Just like our father oversaw his people in ancient Jerusalem, so too, today with this new spiritual city he has been overseeing the building work and when Charles Russell died in 1916, he left a will so that others whom he trusted would take over the main teaching work as new scribes to the new city temple, but, things did not work out this way. Our father had other plans in the making for the building up of the city.

So, after Charles Russell’s death another man took charge over the building work whose name was Joseph Rutherford. He was a horrid bombastic man and soon after he took over the helm, the city divided into two groups. One stayed with the teachings of Russell and remained bible students and the others went along with Rutherford who changed all Russell’s teachings.

How was Joseph Rutherford able to change the bride’s husbandly owner from Jesus to Jehovah?

This came about because Russell got involved with other religious groups that were springing up at that time who were all looking into “the second coming” of our lord, and he too got carried away with them who were predicting his return.

Russell predicted many dates for his return which did not materialise so the bride class fell asleep spiritually speaking and became sluggish not fully awake spiritually any more, so it was at that time Satan was able to sow his seeds amongst the kingdom seed and they will have to grow together until the harvest when the angels will harvest them. Matthew chapter 13v25.

This too reminds us of what happened to ancient Israel when a king was provided for them, it split the Israelites into two groups, when some did not approve of the king of Judah which was provided for them by God, we have covered this in the journal already. The same takes place now, in a parallel to ancient Israel, after Russell’s death, some stayed with spiritual Jerusalem (Judah) and the others left and remained as bible students under Russell’s teachings becoming the spiritual Samaritans. But sadly they stayed with the teachings of Russell and did not really progress any further into the truths of God’s word, like remaining in a time warp through lack of holy spirit and their new literature have proved they do not have the guidance             needed to find the truth of God’s word. 

Again this shows that our father was guiding the building work as Jeremiah chapter 31v31-35 shows “I will make a new covenant with the “house of Judah and the house of Israel” I will put my law within them and I will write them upon their hearts”. (Hebrews chapter 8v8-12, 10v16-17, ) This shows that the temple ones that make up our lord’s body in the latter days would be divided into two groups just as before with ancient Israel and some would be gathered or harvested from both groups, Jehovah’s witnesses and the bible students.

But we are told in the latter days when the time is getting near for the coming of the messiah the man of lawlessness will be revealed and it says a “rebellion takes place and the man of lawlessness will be revealed”. The rebellion took place in 1931 at the same time of the revealing of the man of lawlessness who has proved to be “Jehovah” who is said to be sitting inside the temple or church of the city proclaiming to be God the almighty and will be worshipped as such. 2nd Thessalonians chapter 2 shows he has been placed inside by the power of Satan.  www.pitn.wordpress.com

There is only one religious group today that corresponds with all these points of details and they are Jehovah’s witnesses. I would like to add at this time, they ARE NOT GOD’S PEOPLE today as I shall reveal.

Joseph Rutherford changed all Charles Russell’s teaching in Zion’s Towers replacing them with his own “ideas” instead, not the teachings of our lord Jesus. The funny thing is, he kept all the wrong teachings that Russell collected from the other religious groups about the return of Christ and are still used today.

He insisted at the summer convention in 1931, that everyone in the church take on the name of Jehovah and become “Jehovah’s Witnesses”. He changed their husbandly owner from Jesus to Jehovah, hence the city became a harlot just like her two sisters prior to her, Jerusalem and Samaria, now, spiritual Jerusalem committed fornication too.

By the end of 1931 the spiritual city had become so corrupt and apostate under its new president, Rutherford, the city was handed over to the angelic man of lawlessness mentioned by Paul in his 2nd letter to the Thessalonians chapter 2 whom Satan placed inside the temple claiming he was almighty God and the people in the city worshipped him as God. They took his name upon themselves calling themselves now, “Jehovah’s Witnesses”, placing a fence around them just as the bible and Russell said they should never have, so, instead of Jesus words in Acts chapter 1v6-9, where they were to be witnesses of our lord Jesus, Rutherford changed Jesus for Jehovah. Note too! The cross and the crown of our lord have also been removed. In fact they actually teach today Jesus did not even die on a cross, which is just how far they have strayed from the truth of God’s word.

       8551_900    9073_900

After changing all Russell’s teachings the original city was not recognised as such again. Instead of Zion’s Watch Tower preaching the kingdom of our lord Jesus Christ now the direction has changed to the Watchtower, announcing Jehovah’s kingdom instead.

http://wtjournal.livejournal.com

He made everyone preach the good news about their god Jehovah, going against the very teachings of Jesus and Charles Russell in fact they even made everyone hand in a written record of their preaching to make sure they did this. Later, in the 60/70s it was declared that everyone must put at least 10 hours each month in the preaching work.FIELD SERVICEThey even brought in some of the laws of Moses, forbidding certain foods and blood. Which Peter was told tree times through the holy spirit in Acts chapter 10v11-17 that everything is now clean to eat and nothing is to be classed as “unclean”. http://biblebrain.livejournal.comBLOODRutherford even divided the people into two flocks of sheep, heavenly and earthly so that only certain ones were to partake of the memorial on the night Jesus was betrayed.   Jesus was very clear about this in John chapter 6 and 1st Corinthians 11, where he states “Do this in remembrance of me” and “Unless they eat of my flesh they have no life in them”. Paul made this very clear on his instructions from Jesus, DO THIS IN REMEMBRANCE OF ME” this was a command from Jesus, so the taking of the emblems was to remember Jesus and what he did for us. Now Jehovah’s witnesses all pass the bread and the wine without eating it and saying NO! We will not eat this, we do not want to remember you Lord. We now serve jehovah instead.

Jehovah today pictures Nebuchadnezzar and the angelic prince of Babylon whom they were handed over to in 605 BC for 70 years, and the original founder of Babel, Nimrod whose mother wore headdresses of towers. (The book, The Two Babylon’s by Alexander Hislop, the two babylons referring to ancient babylon and spiritual babylon of the revelations to John) Now, again, for their lack of faith and rebellion they will be handed over in a parallel to that time of 605 BC, in 1931 CE to serve this Babylonian ruler Jehovah for 70 years until the messiah. (1931-2001) From 1931 he will be under certain restraints. 2nd Thessalonians chapter 2v7. So he will not be able to use his full power at this time.

Starting with the death of Charles Russell the spiritual city started to decay rapidly, it was not until 1931 that a full rebellion took place and the city then became “a sect” from spiritual Jerusalem. A sect is a breaking away from the original, which was “Zion’s Watch Tower” to the “watchtower announcing Jehovah’s kingdom”. This resulted in them being handed over to spiritual Babylon where in the revelations to the apostle John they were referred to as a “harlot Babylon the great”. Just as those before her in ancient Israel.

Again, showing how our heavenly father is overseeing the building work, it is interesting as to why the sheep were divided into two flocks instead of the one flock under the one shepherd inside the spiritual city.

The answer is revealed in Revelation chapter 11 where it shows Jesus only going to the temple or church of the city and those worshipping there for the harvest. It explains the rest of the city had been handed over to the nations who in turn will destroy the city, interesting, because the sheep have been divided, this means only the temple ones will be worshipping Jesus on the night he was betrayed and eating and drinking of the emblems of his body which sets them apart from the city.

It is interesting because the records of Jehovah’s witnesses recording the number of people that took the emblems show a marked difference between 2002 and 2005. When the messiah made his inspection visit upon the temple seed, first the number of partakers went up, this indicates that some were not partaking when they should have been when they were visited.

Then by 2005 there was a great drop of 236 partakers before going right back up again under the angelic king of Babylon. In fact the number was even greater than 236 because many took the emblems in 2005 and left the city soon after. So the true number may not be fully known at this stage except there was a great drop of partakers in one month recorded alone from the house of Judah not counting those collected from the house of Samaria, made up of bible students still teachings the works of Russell.

Thus dividing the sheep into two groups proves yet again, only Jehovah’s witnesses fit this teaching.

This dramatic drop in one month accounts for the kingdom seed that were removed from the city before the city was handed over once again. (Rev 13) it is at this time after they had been removed to a place of safety (2005) a new covenant was made with the house of Judah and the house of Israel, now spiritual Judah and Israel. Under this new covenant with their God, he will write his laws upon their hearts and teach them through his holy spirit directly into their hearts. Jeremiah chapter 31v31. Hebrew chapter 8v8-12, 10v16-17. 1st John chapter 2v27, shows they will not need any man to teach them God’s word because they will all know his will through the holy spirit in their hearts.

This again is very interesting because it shows the new covenant will be made with both the house of Judah and the house of Israel again indicating the spiritual Israelites would be divided again in the very last days as they split after the death of Russell in 1916.

They will now resemble the apostle Paul who was taught in the same way. No more will they need to be taught by man. They have now been anointed and adopted as spirit sons and are awaiting their bridegroom to come and collect them.

It is of great interest here too, that when our lord revealed himself to the bride class, he appeared as a man and did not appear as a spirit to them, because it shows in the prophesy of Daniel chapter 9 that he comes as the messiah a “prince” and not as their king at that time to  collect them, he would have appeared to them just as he did to his apostles and others in the first century when he put on a different body each time.

Daniel tells us when the 70 years of their captivity end (2002) the messiah would be here. We also know from Revelation chapter 11 he will visit the temple ones and reveal himself to his bride class and he will remove the scales from their eyes so that they will see the truth enabling them to flee out of the city of darkness now they will be taught the truth in their hearts.

Isaiah chapter 11v11 says “in that day the lord will extend his hand yet a second time to recover the remnant which is left of his people”. The first release for his people was in 538 under Cyrus and now for the second time the release from Babylonian captivity will take place in 2002/5 by our lord Jesus.

It shows the two angels doing this very important teaching will be dressed in sack-cloth which indicates their message will be humble, very hard for the bride class to learn because all the time in the city they had believed they had the truth but now the angels are opening their eyes to the truth. They had been blinded to the truth of God’s word by Satan since 1931 especially. They will be removed from the city just like Lot and his family were prior to the destruction of Sodom.   http://bucketwoman.livejournal.com

 In fact Sodom is mentioned in the Revelations to the apostle John as an alternate name for “spiritual Jerusalem” where our lord was crucified. Chapter 11v7,8 also Egypt, this is interesting because these two cities are connected spiritually to Jerusalem. Showing the connection to the release of God’s people.

Sodom in Genesis 11 shows the two angels going to the city to release the righteous before the city is handed over for destruction. In the parallel to this, Revelation 11 shows the two angels going to the chosen ones, the temple, inside the city to take them out of the city before handing it over to destruction.

The second parallel is for Egypt, where it shows in Exodus, Moses being sent to free Gods people who were being held captives, whom in Hosea chapter 11v1 is called “God’s son”. The parallel being today, the greater prophet Jesus being sent to the temple as the “lamb of God” to purchase the firstborn with his blood. The first Passover saved the lives of the firstborn of Israel with the blood of the lamb in Egypt now the firstborn those that make up the body of our lord are saved through his blood..

2nd Thessalonians chapter 2v8, shows when Jesus comes he will slay the man of lawlessness Jehovah, with the sword coming from his mouth, the holy spirit.images (11)This will take place at the beginning of the last seven years, getting him out of the way for our lord to harvest the kingdom seed. This harvesting work encourages Satan to wage war with the righteous angels. Revelation chapter 12v7-12. Then, when Satan loses the war with Michael and is hurled down to the earth, he brings the lawless one, Jehovah, back from the abyss.

The city will then be handed over to the Newly appointed angelic king of Babylon Jehovah in 2005 whom Satan brings up out of the abyss when he loses the war with Michael he hands over the reigns of the earth to this angelic one making him the king over everything and everyone. (Revelation chapter 13) for 42 months.

Now, this newly appointed king of Babylon will no longer be under any restraints so he will wage war upon the angels that came down with our lord Jesus, even killing some of them. it is at this time he stops all sacrifices going to our lord from the temple and our lord returns to his father. (Revelation chapter 11v7-12.

The symbolic spiritual city will come to an end NOT as it stared out prior to 1916 CE as “spiritual Jerusalem” but as the “harlot Babylon the great”, at the end of the 70 weeks of years, 2009. download (2)

It will come to an end when the stone, smashes the feet of all the angelic kingdoms over the earth, destroying them all together as Daniel chapter 2 shows.download-41But, as the spiritual city was handed over to spiritual Babylon in 1931 it never regained it’s spiritual sight again.

  harlot 1They are now referred to in the Revelations to the apostle John as being the “greater Babylon” founded by Nimrod whose mother wore a headdress of towers. He built a city with a tower with its top in the heavens, just like this spiritual city of greater Babylon today with the queen being Jehovah’s witnesses. They have built this symbolic city up from 1931 with the tower for their worship.

worship 2

They taught for over 100 years the temple anointed ones who took the emblems, were the faithful and discreet slave who fed the rest of the city spiritual food. But they have now changed that to say they have NO special insight whatsoever and only the “governing body” have the right to give them spiritual food. They do this by providing a “study watchtower” which has been placed INSIDE the temple and everyone MUST listen and obey this image. Anyone not obeying this image will be disfellowshipped, kicked out.
9326_900This reminds us of the time when the king of Babylon, Nebuchadnezzar made a golden image and instructed that when the music played, everyone must bow down in honour and worship to this image. Now, the new spiritual Babylon has done likewise. Even going further by having the apostate bible of Jehovah at the foot of the study tower of babel showing he approves of its teachings. 

Do not be deceived Jehovah’s witnesses today are a very evil sect who, not only are blood-guilty before our lord because of their man made laws on the refusal of blood but they harbour paedophiles and are a place of demons and a haunt of foul spirits, and that is recorded in God’s word. Especially where ones are told “get out from amongst them MY PEOPLE” as their sins go high into the heavens. (Revelation chapter 18v4)

We are told by the apostle Paul in his 1st letter to the Corinthians chapter 5v11-13, “not to associate with anyone who bears the name of brother if he is guilty of immorality… drive out the wicked one from among you”. This admonition could not be any clearer on paedophiles within the city.  

Our heavenly father has tried to help them inside the evil city to see the truth,  but the people do not see the truth because they have been blinded by satan. In their “aid to understanding book” page 884 it explains the name jehovah is NOT God’s name, and before the 12th century the name did not exist, but they still teach it is God’s  name.

Also the Creation book of 1927 by Joseph Rutherford shows a picture of great disgust, demoralising our lord Jesus to the depths of disrespect and humiliation on the cross. Judge for yourselves.

It also shows in Daniel chapter 9, the people of the prince to come, will destroy the city. The prince to come is “Jehovah” and his people are Jehovah’s witnesses that are today under the “governing body” who control them, so have they destroyed the city? Yes! they most certainly have. They have sold all the properties belonging to the people just as they did in Spain.

http://www.anthonymathenia.com/spanish-jws-upset-over-bethel-move/

They use the laws to suit themselves where they insist that two or three people must witness the paedophile’s actions in order to counsel them, (as if they are going to have people watch them) whereas they have three witness bearers of the holy spirit stating nothing is unclean today, (Acts chapter 10v11-17) but they ignore these statements of the holy spirit, and insist certain foods and blood is unclean. They even state it is God’s command NOT TO EAT certain foods, and NOT TO HAVE BLOOD!

We must remember the bible is a book or record of “God’s people” and where it shows in the revelations about Babylon the great it is in fact talking about God’s people who were handed over in 1931, spiritual Jerusalem becoming spiritual Babylon. That is why the sound of bridegroom and bride is not heard in her again, it was only heard in Jerusalem, then spiritual Jerusalem.WT 3Daniel shows the end of the 70 weeks of years, 490 years, is “to the anointing of a holy one”. It is at this time when the angelic king’s reign ends over the earth, that our lord returns to take control of the earth and its heavens. Then the stone which represents our lords kingdom will smash the feet of all the angelic rulers in 2009 sparking a greater war amongst the angels, the household of God, which is depicted by Daniel in chapter 2 and chapters 10,11 and the stone, which represents our lord’s kingdom will become a great mountain and fill the earth in a righteous kingdom government under our lord Jesus.

download (4)But before the stone becomes a great mountain and fill the earth with the kingdom of the Christ, the rebellious angels will be gathered together to wage war upon our lord at the place designated for battle, at Armageddon where we are told they will all be killed. Sadly the angels are very powerful and will cause a tribulation upon mankind for a period of time, but we must be strong and have faith in our heavenly father and our lord Jesus.

The New heavens begin with the setting up of the new kingdom over the earth under our lord Jesus and his woman of helpers and this will in turn produce a new earth where we are promised “we shall not learn war anymore”. “Our father in the heavens, let your kingdom come, let your will take place over the earth”.

     images (7)                                         CHARLES   RUSSELL. 

There has been a great deal of controversies about this righteous man, whether he was a “freemason” or not, or whether he had been using “Masonic images” in Zion’s Towers.

We know the father of lies is Satan and he is also our Lord’s rival, adversary, so is he can spread lies about this righteous man to stop people being guided to spiritual Jerusalem.

A lot of people would rather listen to gossip instead of doing a little research themselves. I hope you will check this info out and see what a righteous man Charles Russell really was.

images (10)         8551_900

This to me just symbolises Jesus Christ as our king. The kingdom of the Christ. But many people have added to that simple thought with ideas of freemasonry.

                                   As for the pyramid,

_59048775_onedollar_thinkstockThis was a religious symbol that was used in America around the time and was known as “the all seeing eye” of God. This one is printed on the one dollar note so if the symbol is supposed to be private and sacred to freemasonry, why would it be displayed in this way openly and publicly for everyone to question?

As for this pyramid being built up over the grave of Charles Russell, this too is false. If we look at the last will of Russell about his burial we shall see no mention of this headstone being erected, in fact his burial was totally different.

This is a part of his last will and testament.

DIRECTIONS FOR FUNERAL

I desire to be buried in the plot of ground owned by our Society, in the Rosemont United Cemetery, and all the details of arrangements respecting the funeral service I leave in the care of my sister, Mrs. M. M. Land, and her daughters, Alice and May, or such of them as may survive me, with the assistance and advice and cooperation of the brethren, as they may request the same. Instead of an ordinary funeral discourse, I request that they arrange to have a number of the brethren, accustomed to public speaking, make a few remarks each, that the service be very simple and inexpensive and that it be conducted in the Bible House Chapel or any other place that may be considered equally appropriate or more so.

He was buried in the “Societies Cemetery” where all the bible students were also buried. Charles Russell died and was buried in 1916 with his own headstone erected.

The stone pyramid was not erected until 1921, five years after his death. And not even in the same place as these pictures show.

The pyramid marker was used as a marker for all (275) of the Watchtower Society burial plots in the Cemetery, nothing more. People visiting the Cemetery could look for the pyramid marker to locate the (275) burial plots. Jehovah’s Witnesses do not revere burial places, but some desire to visit the Watch Tower Society’s burial plot where C. T. Russell was buried.

As everyone can see Charles Russell’s grave is not under the pyramid, in fact, it is quite a way from it.

Yes! This was erected as a memorial to all those buried in the cemetery, all 275. Including Charles Russell.

So what of the false claims of Russell being a freemason? Just because he used the same symbols as everyone else in the USA at that time. Which included the One Dollar Bill.

_59048775_onedollar_thinkstockThe Masonic Temple is not even on the cemetery grounds, it is a different property altogether. In fact, the Rosemont United Cemetery was never a Masonic cemetery.

Yes! There is evidence that the first president of the USA, George Washington, was a freemason as this picture shows.

Organised Freemasonry, as we understand it today, began with the formation of the Grand Lodge of England in 1717 – hence our tercentenary celebrations in 2017. While not directly linked, we have taken a lot of our symbolism from stonemasonry. As with stonemasonry, Freemasonry is about moving from level to level as you gain further knowledge and experience, starting with being an apprentice.

Q 1.  What does the one-eyed symbol on their flags signify?

 Nigel Brown: The symbol you are referring to is known as the All Seeing Eye. It is a reminder of the existence of a higher being.

_59048775_onedollar_thinkstockNothing more or nothing less, Mr brown does not emphasise it is a Masonic symbol, quite simply because it is not a secret at all.              

Can you really imagine he will tell anyone what is secret to his organisation?

In fact it is interesting that it was Joseph Rutherford who told his people the pyramid symbol was based upon Satan, knowing none of his people would question this or look into the truth if they were told it had satanic ties.

Judge J. F. Rutherford, who succeeded Russell after Russell died in 1916, eventually discarded Pyramidology entirely. Writing in the November 15 and December 1, 1928, issues of The Watch Tower, Rutherford releases a double-barreled blast against it, and advances many ingenious arguments that the so-called Altar in Egypt was really inspired by Satan for the purpose of misleading the faithful. Did Jesus ever mention the Pyramid? Of course not. To study it, the Judge writes, is a waste of time and indicates lack of faith in the all-sufficiency of the Bible. Regardless of what some anti-JW fault-finders might say, the current Watchtower Society rejected all teachings on the Great Pyramid in 1928. For this reason, most Jehovah’s Witnesses (1931 – 2011) know nothing about it. However, many (not all) of the current Bible Students still teach this “Bible in Stone”  dogma. Quoted from http://www.bibleinstone.com/

Just another dig of jealousy towards such a righteous man Charles Russell. He certainly could not compete against this honest and truthful man so he set out to discredit him as much as he could by destroying all his teachings and replacing them with his own and by saying the pyramid was satanic people would believe him.

Of course there are many articles in Zion’s Tower against Freemasonry if one would like to read them.

Pastor Russell had this to say about the Freemasons: http://www.ctrussell.us/ “We note also that the Order of Free Masons, if judged by its past history, has some secret object or scheme, more than fraternity and financial aid in time of sickness or death. And, so far as we can judge, there is a certain amount of worship or mummery connected with the rites of this order and some others, which the members do not comprehend, but which, in many cases, serves to satisfy the cravings of the natural mind for worship, and thus hinders it from seeking the worship of God in spirit and in truth—through Christ, the only appointed Mediator and Grand Master. In proportion as such societies consume valuable time in foolish, senseless rites and ceremonies, and in substituting the worship of their officers, and the use of words and symbols which have no meaning to them, for the worship of God, in his appointed way—through Christ, and according to knowledge and the spirit of a sound mind—in that proportion these societies are grievous evils, regardless of the financial gains or losses connected with membership in them.” — June, 1895, Zion’s Watch Tower, page 143

“This brings before us the whole question of orders, societies, etc., and what privileges the New Creation has in connection with such organizations. Is it right for them to be members of these societies? We answer that while Church associations are purely religious, and labor and beneficial organizations in general are purely secular, there are still other orders which combine the religious and the secular features. As we understand the matter, for instance, the Free Masons, Odd Fellows, Knights of Pythias, etc., perform certain rites and ceremonies of a religious kind… We place upon one level all of those who have any religious ceremonies, teachings, etc., and consider them all as parts of Babylon … We admonish the New Creation to have nothing whatever to do with any of these semi-religious societies, clubs, orders, churches; but to “Come out from amongst them, and be ye separate, and touch not the unclean thing.” (`2 Cor. 6:17`)” —1904; “The New Creation”, pp. 580-581

Pastor Russell’s true headstone as seen in 2010: Charles Taze Russell said that he was not a Mason. Jehovah’s Witnesses, Bible Students, the Masons, and even ex-JW researchers have all said that Russell was not a Mason. So why do some anti-Watchtower antagonists still teach this falsehood? The answer is simple, because this is what they must do. They need to fabricate stories about others to try and justify their own self worth. After all, how hard can it be to attack a dead man, how sad. With over 200 posts on this site covering a number of subjects, this story about Charles Taze Russell and the Masons is always the most read post on this blog, I wonder why? Could it be that some people just love a good story? Even if it is based on a total fallacy!

Pastor Russell’s true grave as seen in 1916:  The sudden death of Pastor Charles Taze Russell, Editor of THE WATCH TOWER, has created a profound impression upon his many friends throughout the world. Hundreds of letters and telegrams received, further evidence the love and esteem in which he was held, and express unqualified desire to cooperate in continuing the great cause for which he stood so many years. Brother Russell left Brooklyn in the evening of October 16, to fill appointments in the West and Southwest, but was obliged to start homeward before his scheduled time, owing to ill health. It was on a Sante Fe train at Pampa, Tex., that he died. Brother Menta Sturgeon, who accompanied him on the trip as his Secretary, telegraphed the information to the headquarters of the WATCH TOWER BIBLE AND TRACT SOCIETY at Brooklyn, adding that “he died a hero.” The body lay in state at Bethel Home Saturday, and at The Temple throughout the day Sunday. In the afternoon at the hour of 2, funeral service was held for the congregation, and in the evening a service was conducted for the public. At about midnight the body was taken to Allegheny, Pa., where in the Carnegie Hall, at 2 in the afternoon of Monday, service was held by the Pittsburgh congregation, of which he had been resident Pastor for many years. Interment took place in Rosemont United Cemeteries at Allegheny, in the Bethel Family plot, according to his request. We rejoice to know that instead of sleeping in death, as the saints of old, he is numbered among those whose “works follow with him.” He has met the dear Lord in the air, whom he so loved as to lay down his life faithfully in His service. – November 15, 1916 Watchtower, WTB&TS.

I hope you will research these claims for yourselves to see what an upright righteous man he really was. I have also noticed the ones that broke away after the death of Charles Russell who stayed with his teachings for awhile, left them eventually to make their own teachings too the same as Joseph Rutherford and today a great deal of their teachings are wrong compared to the bible teachings.

The pyramid memorial is at the corner of the societies cemetery and not directly near any of the actual graves.

Because of all the false claims about Charles Russell having been a freemason, a member of the bethel team made enquiries to the “free masons” themselves and this was the reply from them.

No, Charles Taze Russell was not a Pennsylvanian freemason! 

Back in 2001, I requested historical information from the ancient accepted Scottish rite of freemasonry, Vally of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, asking if Charles Taze Russell, his father, Joseph Lytel Russell, and his uncle, Charles Tays Russell, were Freemasons. This is the answer I received in a letter: 

“After a search of our records, we determined that the three Russell’s were not members of our organization”.

In their letter, the Pittsburgh Chapter recommended that I send an inquiry asking for further research on this question to the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania located in Philadelphia, which I did. On April 27, 2001, I received this reply: The record books in the grand secretary’s office are unavailable at this time as they are being conserved and should be back some time in the fall”.

Inasmuch as I was very involved with other, more pressing, things then, I did not follow-up and eventually my desire for resolution of this question faded out of my mind. That is, until today, when I saw that this subject has not been resolved to the satisfaction of some posters, so I sent a follow-up email to the Masonic Temple, Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. Just a few minutes ago, I received this reply:

Dear Ms Anderson.

Charles Taze Russell was not a Pennsylvania Freemason. Nor does he appear in the records of England or Ireland.

I shall check the records for the other two Russells.

Best,

Glenys A. Waldman, Librarian.
If and when I receive the answer from the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania about the other two Russells, I will post it.

In any event, I would hope that this answer from a search of the original records will forever put this issue to rest that Charles Taze Russell was never a Pennslyvania Freemason. 

Barbara Anderson was a loyal member of the bethel family and you can read more about her in her web journal.

Maybe now this subject can be put to rest at last.

 The prophecy says: “Seventy weeks of years are decreed concerning your people and your holy city, To finish the transgression to put an end to sin and to atone for iniquity to bring in everlasting righteousness to Seal both Vision and prophet and to Anoint a most holy place. Know therefore and understand that from the going forth of the word to restore and build Jerusalem to the coming of an anointed one, a prince, there shall be seven weeks. Then for sixty-two weeks it shall be built again with squares and a moat, but in troubled times. And after the sixty-two weeks an anointed one shall be cut off, and shall have nothing; and the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. Its end shall come with a flood, and to the end there shall be war; desolations are decreed. And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week; and at the half of the week he shall cause sacrifice and offering to cease; and upon the wing of abominations shall come one who makes desolate, until the decreed end is poured out on the desolator” (RSV)

 I am positive the second interpretation of the prophesy in Daniel 9v24-27 as I understand it is correct that the 490 years started in 1519 and ending in 2009.

But is this the right starting time? We need to use logic, which is common sense to arrive at the correct starting time.

All the evidence points to ~ 1519 CE

This was the year God’s spirit appointed a 25-year-old man who had a great love for God and his word.   WILLIAM TYNDALE to translate and write the bible into the English language, thus restoring God’s word to the people.

images (5)At this time everyone was taught via the pope and the Church of Rome, and all in Latin. How could the prophecy take place unless people could read God’s word and understand it? How could a spiritual city be built up without God’s word and the teachings of our lord Jesus and his apostles?

The prophecy says. 7 weeks for restoring God’s word. 1519 + 49 years = 1568 CE So if this really was the starting date of the prophesy something significant must happen in this year.

So, what happened in 1568? The “BISHOP’S BIBLE WAS PRINTED and it was to be read in all the churches.   The 1538 version called “The Great Bible” was inscribed by order of the king, Henry 8th and was William’s translation, which had later been copied by Miles Coverdale. Henry 8th had a problem accepting Tyndale’s work because he had a difference of opinion with him so he opted for Coverdale’s translation   instead even though it had been copied from Tyndale’s.

Henry 8th abdicated from the church of Rome and formed the new church of England on the advice of his ministers, and was later excommunicated by the church of Rome.

Eventually Elizabeth 1st came on the throne, she was the last queen of the house of Tudor and she asked for the printing of the BISHOPS BIBLE to be copied from Tyndale’s bible to be read in the churches throughout England. Ensuring the restoring of God’s word for his people.  

 What is interesting about her choice of translation is the fact that Tyndale’s version uses the Latin substitute word “Jehovah” for Lord in Exodus 6v3 and Miles Coverdale had removed this and reverted to Lord. Tyndale’s version was used later to produce the “king James Version” complete with the name Jehovah. (this in turn would fulfil God’s purposes)

So, for the next 434 years from 1568 bringing us to 2002 when the prophecy says the messiah would be here leaving just seven years to complete the prophecy.

By this year 2002 CE the Messiah had already visited and inspected the temple class, those who make up his body and revealed himself to them to cleanse his bride ready for his return as their bridegroom. Revelation chapter 11v1-14, shows, our lord visiting the temple of God that is inside the symbolic city and this is when the separating work takes place between the kingdom ones inside the temple.

It is also of interest here, that Daniel says “to the coming of an anointed one, a prince”, so Jesus does not come at the stage as the king. At the end of the prophesy it shows “to the anointing of a holy place or some bible’s put holy one, and we know after the city is complete of the 490 years, Jesus is anointed as his father’s king. This also coincides with the end of the 42 month rule by the angelic king of Babylon that Satan brings up out of the abyss.

By this time too, the building of the spiritual city had been completed and all the bride of anointed ones collected and harvested. Matthew chapter 13V24-31. They have all left the symbolic city with the angels taking hold of their hands just like the angels removing lot from Sodom before the city’s destruction. They will all be fed in their hearts and will not need any man to teach them any more. Hebrews chapter 9v28, 10v16, Jeremiah chapter 31v33-34. 1st John chapter 2v27.

The last seven years are divided into two halves, Just as they were with ancient Jerusalem, the harvest of the kingdom heirs for the first 3 ½ years then, the bride of Jesus will be taught in their hearts by the two angels of Revelation chapter 11. Just as the ancient city in the first century Satan will wage war upon the angels halfway through the last seven years even killing some of them which results in our lord returning to his father. (2005)

The war will continue not only until the end of the prophecy in 2009 but until the final battle at Armageddon where our lord Jesus will kill all the rebel sons of God. But Satan is defeated and hurled to the earth in 2005 so he brings up out from the abyss a fallen angelic one, who was the prince of Babylon, giving him all his kingdom and authority over the earth making him the king of Babylon, the head of all the other angelic kingdoms. Revelation chapter 13. King of Babylon head of gold Daniel chapter 2.

download (4)Just as Daniel chapter 10 and 11 shows, the great war between these angelic rulers who will gather to fight against our lord and his angels as Revelation 16v16 shows. They will be gathered to the place called Armageddon.

By this time 2009, the newly appointed angelic king that Satan brings up out of the abyss, making him the king over all the other angelic kingdoms as the head of gold (Daniel chapter 2) comes to an end, of his reign of 42 months which covers from 2005 to 2009, thus ending the angelic gentile nations over the earth and it is also at this time that our lord is anointed as our king and he comes with his angelic armies to take over the earth and its heavens. We know our lord told Peter recorded in Matthew chapter 16v16, “and on this rock I will build my church”. Jesus being the rock and the chief corner stone to the temple of his body.

In 2009 after being anointed as God’s representative king over the earth Jesus rode with his angels to take over the kingdom of the world. He is represented by the rock or stone, that smashed the feet of the man which represented the angelic rulers over the earth with the “king of Babylon as their head” in Daniel chapter 2 where in verse 44 it shows during the time of these kings or kingdoms the God of heaven will set up his kingdom.

images (12)The rock or stone that smashed the image of those kingdoms happened when our lord Jesus came as our God’s anointed king to take over the kingdom of the earth. The rock or stone became a mountain and filled the earth with the new kingdom of the Christ.

What proof is there that the image depicted in Daniel chapter 2   are representing angelic kingdoms over the earth? Quite simply because Babylon is no longer a city on the earth and Daniel told the king of Babylon that HE was the head of gold, and Satan brought him out of the abyss and gave him all his kingdom and authority over the earth making him the head of gold over all the other angelic kingdoms. This vision was for the latter days. Where it states in verse 44, during the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up his kingdom.

This dream happened in the 2nd year of Nebuchadnezzar (604 BC) Daniel said to the king, “there is a God in heaven who reveals mysteries and he has made known to king Nebuchadnezzar what will be in the latter days…..As you looked, a stone was cut out by no human hand, and it smote the image on its feet of iron and clay and broke them in pieces then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver and the gold all together were broken in pieces. But the stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth”. (verses 28-36) RSV.

This means in 2009 all the angelic kingdoms that had been ruling over the earth were all smashed together, taken over by God’s kingdom authority. This sparked an all out war from the angelic king of Babylon who gathered together all those willing to fight our lord Jesus in a stake over the earth. Called in the Revelations to the apostle John at the place called Armageddon. Where they will all meet their death.
images (9)They were all smashed together when the stone, which represents our lord Jesus, came as God’s anointed one the messiah to take over the earth. This means all the angelic kingdoms will all come to an end at the same time when the stone smashes them. His kingdom will start out as a stone and will turn into a great mountain and cover the earth in righteousness.  

This can also be verified by the uprising of the rebels Isis who are trying to take over the earth by the help of Satan. They started their uprising around the same time as the beginning of the angelic war which most probably started in the middle East around 2009/10.

The results of their warring will cause a tribulation here on the earth but it will not last too long and the rivalry between Satan and our lord will come to an end with the abyssing of Satan for the duration of Christ’s kingdom reign of one thousand years. (Revelation chapter 20v2)

images (18)We are now awaiting the end of that war and the cleansing of the earth and the earth’s heavens of all the demon spirits and all the angelic rebels aided by Satan that have been in charge so that our lord Jesus can prepare a place for his people, resurrect them and be reunited with them.

As 1st Peter chapter 4v17, “the time has come for judgment to start with the household of God” that means his family of angels. These were the very ones Jesus preached to after he had been resurrected by his father. 1st Peter chapter 3v19 also in Peter’s second letter chapter 2v4-16. He describes these evil ones.

When all these have been dealt with then we shall all come under the kingdom of the Christ and his woman of helpers, no longer a bride, but joined to her husbandly owner as his woman.

Our lord Jesus, now our king over the earth will transform the earth into a wonderful world-wide paradise home for the creation of man and the animals. During the one thousand years he will raise up all those who have died just like he did to his friend Lazarus bringing them back to life on the earth and at the end of his reign he will give them the all clear, a complete resurrection, granting them eternal life.

It is at this time Satan will be set free for one last try to contaminate mankind and he will be killed by our king Jesus Christ who will fulfil the prophecy in Genesis chapter 3 by crushing his head. (Revelation chapter 20v7-11)

images (19)When the thousand years end with the new heavens and the new earth our father will close the seventh creative day with the words, “and God saw everything that he had made, and behold. It was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, a seventh day”.

RESTORING and BUILDING JERUSALEM!

bible-21    RESTORING AND REBUILDING Part one

                                                Daniel chapter 9v23-27

This prophecy has two fulfilments one referring to the city after the Israelites were released from captivity in Babylon to the coming of the messiah and one for the latter days to restore and rebuild a symbolic spiritual city Jerusalem to gather the remaining kingdom seed together for the return of our lord Jesus

This article covers the first application 454 BC to 36 CE.

The restoring and building again of the city of Jerusalem that had been destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylon in 586 BC.

This is what the angel Gabriel told Daniel.

23 As soon as you began to pray, a word went out, which I have come to tell you, for you are highly esteemed. Therefore, consider the word and understand the vision: 

“Seventy ‘sevens are decreed for your people and your holy city to finish transgression, to put an end to sin, to atone for wickedness, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the Most Holy Place. “Know and understand this: From the time the word goes out to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the Anointed One, the ruler, comes, there will be seven ‘sevens,’ and sixty-two ‘sevens.’ It will be rebuilt with streets and a trench, but in times of trouble.  After the sixty-two ‘sevens,’ the Anointed One will be put to death and will have nothing. The people of the ruler who will come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end will come like a flood: War will continue until the end, and desolations have been decreed. 27 He will confirm a covenant with many for one seven. In the middle of the seven he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And at the temple he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed” 

So, even though Babylon fell to the Medes and Persians, Cyrus the king made a decree for the Israelites to return to Jerusalem in 538 and only a remnant returned quite possible after 70 years living in Babylon they had settled down to life there.

.In fact two later decrees were issued by king Artaxerxes, The first one was for Ezra the scribe to go to Jerusalem in 454 BC (Ezra chapter 7v1-14) and the second decree was for Nehemiah to return to Jerusalem to rebuild the walls in 445 BC. (Nehemiah chapter 13v6-30) This second decree took place nine years later because Nehemiah had heard that the people around Jerusalem were having problems.

The decree from Cyrus in 538 is too early to fit the prophesy of Daniel chapter 9 because the city was prophesied to be desolate until 516 BC (586-516 covering 70 years of desolation) Although the people were back in Jerusalem once again, they had not received God’s blessings and there was chaos everywhere. Some of the temple priests tried to register themselves back to their duties but their names could not be found, all this can be found in Ezra.

The most feasible decree would have been the one to Ezra, because he was a scribe and a teacher of the law in 454 BC. His task would be to “restore” pure worship again in the city this has been stated in chapter 9 to cover the first 49 years from the decree.

So, from 454-405 BC the people will be restored back to the worship of their God by the laws of Moses being restored.

When Ezra arrived in Jerusalem to read the laws of Moses he found a complete shambles, because while Israel was in Babylon they had broken the laws of their God and the written laws of Moses by marrying foreign women and had children by them, and even taking them all back to Jerusalem with them. He needed to reform them if they were to receive God’s blessing again. So he gathered them all together and told them they had to send their foreign woman and children back and cleanse the land of Jerusalem once again. Pure worship had to be restored ready for their Messiah who was prophesied to come otherwise the lineage records would have been contaminated and not accurate.

He had a hard job on his own and so 9 years later in 445 BC the decree went from the king for Nehemiah to return to Jerusalem and he found chaos everywhere. So he and Ezra set about readjusting the people back to the laws and had the walls rebuilt to protect the city. After the period of restoring them back to pure worship over the next 434 years the city would be built up to the time of the Messiah.

The people accepted Ezra and Nehemiah’s guidance but although they had returned to their land and their city of Jerusalem, they will remain under the gentile nations which includes the angelic princes over the earth (Daniel chapters 10,11) until God’s kingdom under out lord Jesus takes over the whole of the earth. God’s kingdom of Judah ended in 605 BC, now the nations dominated the kingdom of Judah instead and they will never be an independent kingdom again.

From 405 BC-29 CE to the appearance of the Messiah. this was the year Jesus being about 30 years old went to John to be baptised by him.

The remaining seven years that completes the 70×7 490 years, takes us from 29 CE to 36 CE with the death of our lord halfway through in 33 CE. But the covenant with the house of Israel remains until 36 CE, then with the ending of the covenant (490 years) the city as God’s people came to an end and the gentiles were invited to become part of a new spiritual  city of Jerusalem with the Jews, with the apostles as the 12 foundation stones. So, from 36 CE God’s people became a NEW SPITITUAL CITY OF JERUSALEM under the Christ and they would be adopted as such through the Holy Spirit.

It is interesting to note this was a question the apostles asked Jesus when he was here “are you going to restore the kingdom to us at this time”? (Acts chapter 1v6-9)

 The last seven years are divided into two halves. The first 3 ½ years is the harvesting of the Jews to set up the body or bride of our lord which consists of his father giving to Jesus certain ones such as the apostles which he explains about in his prayer john chapter 17 they will become the foundation stones to the new spiritual temple.

It was agreed that Satan would stay out of the way so that our lord would set up his kingdom of heirs, but true to Satan who is a liar from the beginning he breaks his word and at the end of the harvest he enters into Judas to betray Jesus and instigated his death. This was also the time he got into Peter to deny Jesus too. With Jesus out of the way he had hoped to take over the new kingdom heirs.

At Pentecost after Jesus death the apostles were baptised with holy spirit and adopted as spiritual sons of God, they will now preach and teach people to put their faith in our lord Jesus and in 36 CE at the end of the 490 years, the gentiles were invited to share in the wonderful promises of Jesus Christ.

Now the ancient city of Jerusalem was no longer God’s holy city it had been abandoned and a new city of Jerusalem formed a spiritual city. But in time after the death of the apostles apostates soon took over the church and it will now need a complete refurbishment for the gathering of the remaining kingdom seed before the return of our lord Jesus. Hence a second application to Daniels prophesy in chapter 9.

 This was the first application of the prophecy of Daniel chapter 9 which was given to him by the angel Gabriel.

USING THE WONDERFUL GIFT WE HAVE!

bible-21

USING OUR WONDERFUL GIFT

We have seen how our bible have come down to us in our own language and just how blessed we are to have such a wonderful heavenly father and lord Jesus whose guidance led to different ones to produce it for us.

In order to thank them for this wonderful gift we now need to read it and ask for guidance to understand it because not only does it give us our history but it contains information for our future.

When you first open its pages you might think, this is far too hard to read and understand, but if you step back and think of the events that, it refers to, it may help you to see it in a different light. For instance, Jesus taught in story form, illustrations, not because people were child-like in those days, but because it is a good way to teach. Not heavy or full of facts and details which would bog anyone down, but most people will remember stories.

So if you look upon the bible as a large story of events I am sure it will help you to understand it better. For instance: ~

In the beginning our lord made the earth to be inhabited by perfect human beings and all the wonderful different animals for them to enjoy and look after. But, amongst his father’s family there were sons who were jealous of this special relationship, and privileges our lord had with his father, one son in particular was so jealous he wanted to spoil things for him and he set himself up in opposition to him.

This spirit son became known as Satan, meaning “resistor”. He may have started out as one of the spirit sons to look after things on the earth to care for the first humans and was eaten up with envy at the praise our lord was receiving. So he put himself in opposition to our lord and this fight will continue until the end.

                                             Satan vss our lord Jesus. 
images (10)He fought in opposition to our lord from the very beginning and he is the father of lies. (John chapter 8v44) He has also been the god over the world since getting our first parents turned out of their paradise home by his evil influence over them. (2nd Corinthians chapter 4v4)

Under his authority things started to go wrong from the very beginning when some of God’s spirit sons came to the earth to join him, we have covered this in other articles of this journal so we shall continue with the outline of the bible.

Satan has caused us nothing but problems and grief ever since he turned Eve’s mind against her husband’s instructions about the tree they were not to eat from and he has influenced our minds in the same way as he did with Eve, as Jesus tells his apostles “Satan has demanded to sift them like wheat” and we know he “entered into Judas to betray Jesus” and also the apostle Peter, when he denied Jesus, this was all down to Satan’s influence. (Luke chapter 22v31-35, 54-62) We have never experienced peace on the earth where as under the kingdom of the Christ we have been promised we will not learn war any more (Isaiah chapter 2v2-4) because his kingdom will be a righteous rulership over the whole of the earth.

The earth became so bad because of the sons of God coming down and marrying the daughters of man producing giants, freaks of nature by mixing spirit souls and earthly souls together (Genesis chapter 6) and causing havoc that a great world-wide flood covered the earth to destroy them and only 8 souls, of our father’s choosing, survived to start the earth over again. Noah, his wife and three sons and their wives. But, not long after this great cleanup Satan started influencing humans yet again and in a short time contaminated the human family once more.

It shows us in Ephesians chapter 6v12.

“For we are not contending against flesh and blood but against the principalities, against the powers against the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places”. This too, we have covered in this journal.

In order to preserve some righteous people on the earth, and not have everyone under Satan, our Father decided to preserve a people for his name and promised Abraham to use his seed to do this. He visited Abraham and his grandson Jacob and changed Jacob’s name to Israel instead so that his 12 sons became known as the 12 tribes of Israel. God’s chosen people.download (5)When the time came for our Father to adopt them as his son on the earth they had been in slavery in Egypt for 430 years, so now he was going to show his power to set them free. From now on his people will be under his kingly guidance instead of under Satan. But, this will not stop Satan using his influence on them as we shall see later, after they had been set free.

They ended up in slavery in Egypt because one of Jacob’s sons called Joseph used to have dreams and this upset his brothers so one day while they were tending their fathers sheep the brothers took Joseph and placed him down a dry well, then when traders came by travelling to Egypt they sold Joseph to them who took him down to Egypt and left him there.download (2)Then when a famine arose over the land the brothers were sent down to Egypt to buy food supplies and met up with Joseph once more. The whole family went to Egypt to stay because there was plenty of food for them and by this time Joseph was an important figure.  images (7)This was when Moses came on the scene, God was going to use him as his servant on the earth to visit the Israelite’s to let them know they were going to be set free.

We all know the story of Moses how he was found in the bulrushes as a baby by Pharaoh’s daughter and taken into the palace and brought up by her. He had been placed there and was watched over by Miriam, his sister because a law was issued to the midwives, that no baby boys from the Israelites were to live after their birth because there was too many of them and Miriam knew Pharaoh’s daughter always went there at a certain time of day so she lay in wait to see the event.

   download (1)         download       

When Pharaoh’s daughter   saw him she fell in love with him and wanted to keep him and Miriam came out of hiding and told her that one of the Israelite women would take care of him until he was weaned, became a certain age. This took place so that Moses early days was with his own people before he was taken into the kings palace where he was brought as an Egyptian.

images (3)       images (4)

One day Moses saw an Egyptian mistreating an Israelite and he stepped in and killed the Egyptian and because of this act, he had to flee out of Egypt. But now years later he was instructed to go back to Egypt to speak to the Israelites under the direction of the holy spirit after seeing a bush that was burning with flames but was not on fire he went to see this great thing and was spoken to by God.imagesEventually after 10 plagues were brought upon pharaoh because of his reluctance in letting the Israelite’s go free, he eventually sent them away. They fled towards the red sea where they crossed on dry land when Moses opened up a path through the waters with the help of the holy spirit. But when Pharaoh realised all his slave workers were gone, he chased after them with his armies and while they were chasing them through the Red sea on the path of dry land that the holy spirit opened up, the sea came back and drowned them all.

images (5)images (6)                          The Israelites were a stiff-necked people just like the Egyptians and it did not take them long to forget this wonderful escape from Pharaoh’s armies that their complaining started. First they moaned about the food, then, it was the water that it was too bitter. Eventually God sent serpents amongst them which bit them and they would die, when they repented he provided a way out for them. He instructed Moses to make a copper serpent and hang it high on a tree so that when the people were bitten they were to look at the copper serpent and get saved. It was not long before their complaining became too hard for Moses and this eventually caused him to lose the right to enter the Promised Land. He was exhausted by their constant complaining.

moses from afar

They finally entered into the promised land after a trek through the wilderness for 40 years because of their rebellious nature, but their constant complaining continued. They now wanted a king they could see just like the nations around them had, so again, they were given a king, whose name was Saul. He became the first earthly king appointed by their God becoming the start of the “kingdom of Judah”.

But again they were not happy. Their second king was David and he made Jerusalem the capital for God’s people, but he was not allowed to build a temple there because he was a man of war so this privilege came down to his son Solomon.

Again, the people were not happy having a king of God’s choosing so this eventually divided the people into two groups, 2 tribes stayed and worshipped in Jerusalem and 10 tribes worshipped on the mountain in Samaria becoming the Samaritans in Jesus day and forming their own king. Both groups stayed under the laws of Moses but the 2 tribe group’s hatred towards the Samaritans were still strong even when Jesus came to the earth in the first century.

Their hostility and complaining towards their God eventually caused him to hand them over to the gentile nations.

And in 605 BCE they were handed over to serve the king of Babylon, Nebuchadnezzar for 70 years as a punishment. They were told through the prophets that had been sent to them that if they did not subject themselves to the king of Babylon, he would send Nebuchadnezzar back to them and he will destroy their temple and their city and it shall lay desolate for a further 70 years.

It was in the first year of Nebuchadnezzar’s reign that he took the city of Jerusalem in 605 BC and this was the year he took Daniel and his three other companions of his captive. They were young and handsome and they were to serve in the king’s palace. It was the order of the king that they should eat the rich fine food from the king’s table but Daniel requested they continued to eat their own food instead and this was granted them. It soon became known that Daniel had special gifts and was used by the king.

The Israelite’s really were a stiff-necked people and they refused to become subject to the king, so he did return and the temple and the city was totally destroyed. History tells us it was a long drawn out siege lasting a few years and the people were eventually starved into submission so that they ate their own children. (Jeremiah chapter 19v1-13) This happened in the kings 19th year after he first took the city and it this was 11th year of Zedekiah whom Nebuchadnezzar made king in the city. 586 BCE, and the city shall remain desolate until 516 BCE.

So even though Babylon fell to the Medes and Persians, Cyrus the king made a decree for the Israelites to return to Jerusalem in 538. In fact two other decrees were issued by king Artaxerxes,

The first one was for Ezra the scribe to go to Jerusalem in 454 BC (Ezra chapter 7v1-14) and the second decree was for Nehemiah to return to Jerusalem to rebuild the walls in 445 BC. (Nehemiah chapter 13v6-30)

When Ezra arrived in Jerusalem to read the laws of Moses he found that while Israel had been in Babylon they had broken the laws of their God and the written laws of Moses by marrying foreign women and had children by them, and even taking them all back to Jerusalem with them. He needed to reform them if they were to receive God’s blessing again. So he gathered them all together and told them they had to send their foreign woman and children back and cleanse the land of Jerusalem once again. Pure worship had to be restored ready for their Messiah who was prophesied to come otherwise the lineage records would have been contaminated and not accurate.

This they did but although they were now able to return to their land and their city of Jerusalem, they will remain under the gentile nations until God’s kingdom under out lord Jesus takes over the whole of the earth. The kingdom of Judah ended in 605 BC. It is interesting to note this was a question the apostles asked Jesus when he was here “are you going to restore the kingdom to us at this time”? (Acts chapter 1v6-9)

Showing how important it was to keep the lineage pure from King David to the Messiah is brought out in Matthew chapter 1v1-18 and Luke chapter 3v23-38 and this was why they had to send all their foreign wives and children away. Both Joseph and Mary were from the Royal lineage. This brings us to the time the messiah was to be revealed.

When Jesus was about 30 years of age he went to John the Baptist to get baptised by him in the river Jordan, and when he came up out of the water a voice from heaven declared “this is my beloved son with whom I am well pleased” (Matthew chapter 3v16,17) this is also backed up with John’s account in chapter 1v26-34.

Even though our heavenly father handed the rebellious nation of Israel over to be ruled by the gentile nations he kept his promise to send them a Messiah, one who would fulfil the laws and free them from the written laws of Moses. But true to form they rejected his son Jesus who rode into Jerusalem as their new king of Judah and had him killed. In fact when they were addressed by Pilate “behold your king” the chief priests actually declared to the Roman’s “we have no king but Caesar”. (John chapter 19v14-16

images (17)        Can you imagine just how hurt this rebellion made their God feel after sending his only son to the earth to help them get free of the written laws and restrictions for them to reject his son and well as himself. It is no wonder he cast them off.

The Jews were cast off as God’s nation of people at the death of his son, it shows when Jesus died the curtain dividing the inner sanction where the Holy spirit dwelt was torn in two showing it no longer contained God’s spirit. (Matthew chapter 27v51 – 55) The city remained in favour for the gathering of the first-fruits of the kingdom for a further 3 ½ years, then in 36 CE the gentiles were invited to inherit the kingdom through faith in our lord. Thus ending Jerusalem and its temple as the holy city of God.

From now on, the city of Jerusalem, the nations of Israel will become the “spiritual nation of Israel” they will make up a new city of Jerusalem. This spiritual city will be worldwide and its church inside the city will be those who make up the body of our lord. The apostles were told after Jesus resurrection not to leave Jerusalem until after their adoption by the Holy Spirit. Acts chapter 1v6, 2v1-21.

Just as the temple was the focal point of the ancient city of Jerusalem so too the church will be the focal point inside the spiritual city and although this will be a world-wide spiritual city and church, the bible indicates it will be ONE religious group that will make up the city where the church will be taken from. Just as the Jews were one religious group in ancient times.

We also know the temple or body of our Lord will be built up upon him as the chief corner stone and the apostles who make up the 12 foundation stones to the temple or church as it is known today. What exactly does this mean?

The answer is in fact given to us by Jesus himself in a prayer to his father relayed to us in John chapter 17v6, 20-24 where Jesus acknowledges that his apostles were given to him by his father for the beginning of the spiritual temple of his body. He shows in verse 20 “I do not pray for these only, but also for those who believe in me through their word”. Yes! Through the word of the apostles as the foundation stones to the temple “their teachings”.

 Ephesians chapter 2v13-22 says “But now in Christ Jesus you were once far off have been brought near in the blood of Christ. For he is our peace who has made us both one (the Jews and the gentiles) and has broken down the dividing wall of hostility, by abolishing in his flesh the law of commandments and ordinances (the written laws of Moses) that he might create in himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace and might reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross thereby bringing the hostility to an end….And through him we both have access to one spirit to the father….built upon the foundations of the apostles and prophets Christ Jesus himself being the chief corner stone in whom the whole structure is joined together and grows into a holy temple in the lord in whom you also are built into it for a dwelling place for God in the spirit”.

 This gives us guidance as to where the true body, or church, of our lord can be found today, it will be those who uphold the true teachings of Jesus and his apostles. Also it is only the church members that are inside the city that make up his body and not the city itself. Just as the temple was inside the city of Jerusalem.

So it would be useless looking at a religion on the earth today as a whole because just like ancient Jerusalem in the 1st century, it may over the years have become corrupt. Remember Jesus words “many are invited but few are chosen” so many are invited to be in the city and even worship in the temple but not all will be chosen only a few of them will be of the chosen. (Matthew chapter 22v14)

Again, Jesus said “by their fruits you will know them” he also said they would be hated by everyone because of their stand for the true teachings of Jesus and his apostles just as he and the apostle Paul had been. And here Jesus was not just referring to those INSIDE the city because the true church members of Christ’s body will not go along with false teachings in the city, they would be persecuted and kicked out. In fact the apostle Paul even chastised Peter on occasion when he was not keeping to Jesus words and straying off course due to his affliction, fear of man. (Galatians chapter 2v11-17. Matthew chapter 7v20. John chapter 17v14)

Those that make up the body of our lord today will stand out as being totally different from the world of religious teachings, their teachings are based entirely upon our lord Jesus and his apostles and they will NOT condone any teachings that are wrong. 

For instance these are just a few of the wrong thoughts and teachings today.

1st.   Religions that teach when we die we go to heaven!

This is not correct, Jesus says we are asleep and will wait for the resurrection during his kingdom reign of one thousand years. After all Jesus was in the grave for three days before his resurrection by his father and his friend Lazarus was in the grave four days before being raised up. John chapter 14v3 says “And when I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and take you to myself and where I am you may be also”.

Yes! Jesus will return and take them to be with him, they will not go to him at death but he will come again and take them. So this puts paid to all spirit mediums that claim to speak to the dead. They cannot.

2nd.   Religions that teach the kings or wise men visited Jesus in the stable the night he was born!   The Christmas nativity.

This is wrong! The bible accounts show the shepherds were visited by the angels and they visited the stable but the men from the East travelled to Jerusalem by following a star they had seen whilst they were in the East and the report shows this was about two years after he was born and they entered into the “house” where the “young child was with his mother” that was why Herod killed all the baby boys from two years and under from the time he ascertained from the travellers from the East. No mention of how many travellers came from the East only that three different gifts were mentioned. Luke chapter 2v8-20. Matthew chapter 2v1-17. Especially vs 7, 11, 16. This too is covered in this journal under the birth of our lord.

3rd.   Any religion that teach we are under any of the Mosaic laws, for instance the Sabbath or Acts chapter 15v28 with restrictions of foods or blood!

All these teachings are wrong! Jesus fulfilled all the Mosaic laws on his death and freed the Jews completely but they have chosen to remain with them which has alienated them from God. When Peter was shown a vision of unclean food and told to eat, he refused and three times a voice from the heavens told Peter “do not call unclean what God has cleansed”. The three witness bearers were the Holy Spirit speaking these words that all food is now clean to eat and nothing is unclean. Romans chapter 7v6. Acts chapter 10v9-17. Luke chapter 13v1-6 and 16v16.

 4th.   What about religions that address their clergy as “Father”.

This is wrong! Jesus says, “Call no man your father because you have one father who is in heaven. Neither be called master for you have one master the Christ”. Matthew chapter 23v9.

Quite recently the president of the USA addressed the Pope as “Holy Father”. What would our lord think of this?

 5th.   And what about Lot’s wife? All religions today teach that she was killed just because she turned around to look back at Sodom. Did God really kill her as all religions say, especially after releasing her from Sodom?

No! He did not! Every religious group today teach and believe that just because the wife turned to look behind her she was turned into a pillar of salt.                   Read the true account set out underneath.

                                                         Genesis chapter 19.

Did it really happen like this? With the destruction to the city of Sodom going on whilst they were fleeing? What is interesting is, all the accounts and pictures show this destruction going on in the background while they were fleeing. So did it really happen this way? NO! It did not!

Lot’s wife was not destroyed because she disobeyed the angels telling them to flee and not look back as many claim. Not once do the angels tell them: – if you look back you will die!

 If you read the account from v15-24, it shows how Lot was delaying because he was a wealthy man and did not really want to leave everything behind, so eventually the angels had to take hold of his hand and take him to the outskirts of the city. He was told to flee and not look back in the sense, do not look back at what you will be leaving behind because that would make it harder for him to flee!

 This corresponds with Jesus instructions in Luke 17v29-34, “do not worry about your goods inside the house, do not go back for them” flee away and leave it all behind in order to get saved.

Lot asked to go to the near by town of Zoar and this was granted, and again the angels told him the destruction would not start until he reached Zoar and was safely inside that city. (v22) This was a direct promise. It was only after they reached Zoar did the destruction start.

So even if Lot’s wife did indeed glance back towards Sodom whilst fleeing there was nothing to see, so how could she possibly have been caught up in the destruction when they had been promised it would not start until they reached the safety of Zoar.

It does say in v26, “Lots wife from behind him looked back and she became a pillar of salt”. (RSV) But this was not whilst fleeing from Sodom, they were less than a day’s journey away and after reaching Zoar (22-23) it is more logical to assume, Lot’s wife decided to return to Sodom where her heart really was, without her husband knowing, hence behind his back.

She walked right into the storm, which killed her, and she had done exactly what Jesus was referring to in Luke she had already been saved but chose to go back for the goods in her house. She went back leaving the protection of Zoar.

To illustrate this: – it could be likened to walking through a heavy snow storm which sticks to you and covers you, disorientating you until you don’t know which way to go. This is more likely what happened to her, she started to be covered with the destructive storm of fire and brimstone (sulphur) upon the area and died there. Just like a snowman covered by snow, but a pillar of brimstone and ash.

The story everyone gives about Lot’s wife just looking back and being destroyed is just not true. In fact when God sent Moses to free the Israelites from Egypt, it wasn’t long before they started moaning, Ex 16v209 shows they were looking back in their hearts with a longing to being back in Egypt wishing they were still there in fact, but they were not destroyed for their longing, and showing great disrespect for Moses.

Some according to this account in Genesis blame God for her death, but why on earth send down angels to take them out of the area if God was going to destroy her anyway? Also if the destruction could not start until they reached safety how could it have destroyed her while she was fleeing? She was covered in Salt so where did it come from while they were fleeing and why was the rest of the family not affected? Do people really think Lot and his two grown up daughters would run off and leave her behind? I don’t think so!

No! Of course not! The angels just meant do not look back in your heart at what you are leaving behind your life is worth a lot more than possessions and if one was to keeping looking back in their heart, the heart would take over the person and they would go back. In fact if anyone said this to us ~ do not turn around and look now ~ it is only human nature to turn around and look.

Please read through Genesis 19 at these points and you will see the truth of that account but because everyone quotes v26 the rest of the details are lost and this verse stands out.

This is a very important issue involved here because of the blame involved. God did not kill Lot’s wife, she killed herself for leaving the safety of Zoar and actually going back to Sodom where her heart really was. If she had remained in that place of safety with her family she would have been saved. Also Rehab (Joshua chapter 2v1-21) was saved and everyone inside her house were saved but as verse 19 says, “if anyone goes out of the doors of your house into the street his blood shall be upon his head”, James chapter 2v25, Hebrews chapter 11v31. Luke 17v29-34.

There is a very important lesson here for everyone, never take one verse out of a chapter before reading the whole chapter of events. Yes, Lot’s wife did “look back from behind her husband” (v26) but this did not happen whilst they were fleeing the city, it happened because she decided to return to Sodom without telling her husband, which gives us a totally different meaning to v 26 just by using logic, which after all is just common sense.

6th.   What about the religions today who insist using “unleavened bread” for the memorial of our lord Jesus on the night he was betrayed.

Again, we are not Jews or under any of the laws of Moses so we are not under any command to use unleavened bread. We are a new people under the Christ, Jews and gentiles, a new people from 36 CE. Jesus shows in John chapter 6 he is “the living bread” that came down from heaven that we must eat of if we want eternal life. “Living bread” active, alive, not dead without life as without leaven.

7th.   The Last example I will show at this time is a very important issue and again it has been not been read correctly!

Read with me Exodus chapter 6v2,3, where I quote, “I am the lord. I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac and to Jacob as God almighty but by my name Jehovah I was NOT known to them”.

Quite clearly our lord explains to Moses when he visited Abraham he went in the name of “Almighty God” and the covenant made with him was between Abraham and almighty God, and not our lord, then our lord explains “but by MY name Jehovah” I was NOT known to them. BUT all the Christian religions on the earth today are under a misconception that “Jehovah” is the name for almighty God. Is this correct?

No! It most certainly is not. The name Jehovah has been inserted instead of Lord in Exodus chapter 6v3 and as our lord tells Moses by MY name LORD, or Jehovah, I did not make myself known to Abraham. Our lord visited Abraham as representing his father Almighty God and the covenant made with him was with his father and not with our lord so he could rightly say to Moses he was not known by Jehovah, (lord) to him.

This brings us to the question, is Jehovah the God of the Israelite’s, the Jews? Again the answer is NO! not only have we just read in Exodus our lord was not known to them by this name but the name had not even been heard of before the 13th century CE.

 The facts are, the name Jehovah was “INVENTED” by a Spanish monk named Raymundus in the 13th century as a substitute Latin word for LORD. At that time all church services were spoken in Latin and as there was a Greek substitute word for lord and as all things were now preached in Latin, it seemed just at that time to have a Latin word for lord too. Hence the word “Jehovah” was founded created. Which proves the name could not possibly have been used as a name to the Jews.

So, you may wonder why the name has appeared in our bibles today? Quite simply to fulfil prophecies.

The apostle Paul tells us in his second letter to the Thessalonians chapter 2 that the “man of lawlessness” is sitting INSIDE the temple proclaiming to be God and will be worshipped as God by the people in the new symbolic city of Jerusalem. He will be placed inside the temple by the power of Satan.

 This name was not known because it did not exist before the 13th century and our God will not tolerate this deception to continue much longer. Already the POPE has been guided by our God to remove the name Yahweh or Jehovah from all their hymns and prayer books. The name has been added to God’s word and should now be removed. The first time this name appeared was by William Tyndale in his translation which has been covered in another article in this journal. In fact it has already been removed from newer translations.

Do Jehovah’s witnesses agree with this? That the name is wrong?

YES! They do.

 I quote,

Jehovah’s Witnesses, who was Raymundus Martini?

Update: C.E. Raymundus Martini, a Spanish monk of the Dominican Order, used it in his book Pugeo Fidei of the year 1270. Does this ring a bell?

Update 2: While the pronouncement may still not be known one thing we do know, its not Jehovah. Where does the name Jehovah come from? We can trace the name Jehovah to the first person to use it, a Roman Catholic monk from the 1200’s. “The first recorded use of this form dates from the thirteenth century C.E. Raymundus Martini, a Spanish monk of the Dominican Order, used it in his book “Pugeo Fidei” of the year 1270.” (from Jehovah’s Witnesses own book “Aid to Bible Understanding” p.884). Does this ring a bell?

Update 3: From page 18 of the Jehovah’s Witness book ‘Let Your Name Be Sanctified’ it says, “All available evidence is that a Roman Catholic clergyman introduce that pronunciation. “On page 25 in the Foreword of the 1950 New World Translation of the Christian Greek Scriptures it says this about the Divine Name: “While inclining to view the pronunciation ‘Yah.weh’ as the more correct way, we have retained the form ‘Jehovah’ because of people’s familiarity with it since the 14th century

END OF QUOTE!

It is to be remembered our lord today is “OUR LORD JESUS” and certainly NOT our lord Jehovah. This is a complete insult to our lord Jesus who came to the earth and gave his life in order to provide us with a better future.
