Doctrines & Dogmas of Devils
What times we live in! We live in the best/worst of times. Times like these are what the disciples spoke of. The time which all mankind has awaited.
In what was the largest and most important Catholic gathering of priests since the Second Vatican Council in 1962, the pope made some startling statements!
“God is not a judge but a friend and a lover of humanity and God seeks not to condemn but only to embrace. Like the fable of Adam and Eve, we see hell as a literary device and hell is merely a metaphor for the isolated soul, which like all souls ultimately will be united in love with God.”
In a shocking speech that is reverberating across the world, Pope Francis declared that all religions are true because they are true in the hearts of all those who believe in them. He added that in the past, the church has been harsh on those it deemed morally wrong or sinful but it can no longer judge people today.
“Like a loving father, we never condemn our children. Our church is big enough for heterosexuals and homosexuals, for the pro-life and the pro-choice.
“For conservatives and liberals, even communists are welcome and have joined us. We all love and worship the same God,” Pope Francis added.
Over the last six months, the Catholic cardinals, bishops and theologians have been deliberating in the Vatican City, discussing the future of the church and redefining long-held Catholic doctrines and dogmas.
Time & Time Again
HERE is a paradox! A paradox, a most ingenious paradox.
All things must come in their own due time according to the plan and destiny of GOD!
When Jesus Christ left this realm, He left The Holy Spirit as His representative.
Countless times God’s children have been there, begging to be made conformable to the image of Jesus Christ through the furnace of affliction.
Like the times of Joseph & Moses…in Egypt, we have a parallel which I believe needs attention. Not only were the tribe predisposed to go through times of trials and troubles, we are too. The Believers of today are being challenged because of their belief on GOD. Our possessions, and the powers that be on this earth and above will try to take our possessions and even our faith! The blessings which the characters of the Bible were promised are also promised to us, and we shall experience hardships, such as theirs and even worse.
People complain constantly about hardships, and even I am at fault of this. No one is perfect except Jesus Christ. But, we are to share in the spiritual inheritance coming our way, we just need to remember that these are hard times ahead.
Joseph and Moses were vessels of GOD’S Plan! And this is a metaphorical example for us:
Genesis 39 (KJV)
1 And Joseph was brought down to Egypt; and Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh, captain of the guard, an Egyptian, bought him of the hands of the Ishmeelites, which had brought him down thither.
Exodus 2 (KJV)
5 And the daughter of Pharaoh came down to wash herself at the river; and her maidens walked along by the river’s side; and when she saw the ark among the flags, she sent her maid to fetch it.
6 And when she had opened it, she saw the child: and, behold, the babe wept. And she had compassion on him, and said, This is one of the Hebrews’ children.
PILLARS OF CLOUD & FIRE
Stay with me here…Satan parallels everything GOD does. EVERYTHING. When the Antichrist arrives, he will do so by the very acts that GOD utilized to show HIS people that HE was with them. What is taking place in the religious world? We have a pope who is changing doctrine and it is predestined for him to do so. This way, when the Antichrist makes his appearance, he will be accepted.
Exodus 13 (KJV)
21 And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night:
Nothing is by chance, nor circumstance. GOD controls everything.
We are likened to the days when the people were in the wilderness!
Exodus 14 (KJV)
11 And they said unto Moses, Because there were no graves in Egypt, hast thou taken us away to die in the wilderness? wherefore hast thou dealt thus with us, to carry us forth out of Egypt?
By passing through the difficulties of the desert and wilderness, these people were challenged.
Today, we are living in the most momentous hour of all ages, for before our very eyes GOD is laying the groundwork for the coming Kingdom of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Yet it is a shame that the religious world is making the same mistake our forefathers made over 1900 years ago. When Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem of Judea, the religious world of that day was looking for a King, one who would rescue them from the yoke of the Roman Government and could establish again in Palestine the Throne of David. When a Savior came instead, they let the Jews crucify Him.
Sound familiar? GOD works in mysteriously cyclical ways!
Today the religious world is looking for the coming of a Savior, only sadly…this savior will not be Jesus Christ but one who will look and act like Him.
As a human race, we rule out any and all Biblical references which confront actions which the Bible tells us is wrong. We are profiling Believer’s at an exponential rate…never witnessed before.
We have people disguised as Believer’s who are making a mockery of the Tribes of GOD. John 10: 26 … ye are not of my sheep … and then in John 8: 44 … Ye are of your father the devil…. He told this same pack of Jews that they were “whited tombs filled with dead men’s bones.” He had called them a “generation of vipers,” and had said that all the blood of righteous men was upon their heads.
The millennium, which is the Kingdom age, is about to burst upon us, and whether the ecclesiastical leaders wish to accept it or not, His coming Kingdom is sure. The planet upon which we live has for almost 6000 years groaned beneath the burden of sorrow and sin. All this came about through the fall in the Garden of Eden.
Sounds in the Earth (Trumpets?). Blood moons. Tetrads. Earthquakes. Asteroids. Comets. Tsunamis. Signs in the sun, the moon, and the stars! And this is in the midst of it all…
In the literal Greek translation, the word “sorrow” reads “birth-pangs.” Almost six thousand years have passed since the first Adam, and now we come to the 7000, which is more a type of the sabbath of the Lord. He speaks of it, and so do His prophets and disciples as the “earth’s last day” (end of this system). This shall be a time of refreshing, as was spoken of by Peter (Acts. 3:19). He makes it more clear that this refreshing will come at the end of the age. (Acts 3:21).
Question: What theme of Genesis is revisited in Exodus chapter one concerning Israel’s enslavement and suffering at the hands of the Egyptians? Where was this theme introduced in Genesis? How will this theme be expanded in the Book of Exodus?
Answer: The theme was introduced in the story of Joseph, his enslavement and his rise to power as the governor of the nation of Egypt. The theme is articulated by Joseph in Genesis 50:20 when he told his brothers: The evil you planned to do me has by GOD’s design been turned to good, to bring about the present result: the survival of a numerous people. This will be the theme of liberation in the events that are experienced by last generation the children of Israel in Egypt who, despite the Pharaoh’s evil intension and the evil intension of the Egyptian people, will continue to be blessed by GOD in their exodus out of Egypt and the journey to nationhood.
I believe this parallels what is taking place for GOD’s people right now.
Exodus 3 is a perfect example of what I’m speaking of:
This is what I think will happen again too:
Only…metaphorically…I believe the Egyptian reference will be for the whole world as it has been throughout this article:
During the last watch of the night the LORD looked down from the pillar of fire and cloud at the Egyptian army and threw it into confusion.
A prayerless affliction is like an open sore, ripe for infection; a prayerful affliction is like an open sore, ripe for the balm of Gilead–the healing ointment of Jesus’ blood. “Pray without ceasing” (1 Thess. 5:17).
Consider the patience and perseverance of Jesus Christ during His trials here on this bitter rock. We must try our best to be like HIM! Look more to Jesus Christ. Trust more in His promise. Rest more in His perseverance, for your perseverance rests in His. Seek grace to imitate His patience under affliction. Your trials may alarm you, but they will not destroy you. Your crosses are GOD’s way to royal crowning.
