"When the Lamb broke the fifth seal, I could see, beneath the altar, the souls of those who had been killed for the sake of the Word of God and because of the faithfulness of their witness. They cried out in a loud voice, saying, "How long, O Lord, holy and true, until you judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?"
"Then each of them was given a white robe, and they were told to be patient a little longer, until the number of their fellow-servants and of their brethren, who were to die as they had died, should be complete. (Revelation 6:9-11)-(Phillips)
In verse 10 believers who have died all through history wanted to know how long until God's judgment is given to those upon earth while being told in verse 11 to be patient and wait until their brethren be killed as they had died. . .
So how long is the wait according to God's own words?
"And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not. Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed. Then said I, Lord, how long? And he answered, Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land be utterly desolate, And the Lord have removed men far away, and there be a great forsaking in the midst of the land. (Isaiah 6:9-12)
The words you just read are very important just as all the words written by our Lord that believers worldwide will not believe. Let's read them from another version more direct to the point.
"Listen hard, but you
aren't going to get it;
look hard, but you won't catch on.'
Make these people blockheads,
with fingers in their ears and blindfolds on their eyes,
So they won't see a thing,
won't hear a word,
So they won't have a clue about what's going on
and, yes, so they won't turn around and be made whole."
"And Master, how long is this to go on?"
He said, "Until the cities are emptied out,
not a soul left in the cities-
Houses empty of people,
countryside empty of people.
Until I, God, get rid of everyone, sending them off,
the land totally empty.
And even if some should survive, say a tenth,
the devastation will start up again.
The country will look like pine and oak forest
with every tree cut down-
Every tree a stump, a huge field of stumps.
But there's a holy seed in those stumps." (Message)
When God says He will remove men far away, or send them off in Isaiah 6:12, off to where? Why? What do those words mean?
Here is the answer from our Lord that believers worldwide do not believe.
"And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks? Ye eat the fat, and ye clothe you with the wool, ye kill them that are fed: but ye feed not the flock. The diseased have ye not strengthened, neither have ye healed that which was sick, neither have ye bound up that which was broken, neither have ye brought again that which was driven away, neither have ye sought that which was lost; but with force and with cruelty have ye ruled them. And they were scattered, because there is no shepherd: and they became meat to all the beasts of the field, when they were scattered. My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and upon every high hill: yea, my flock was scattered upon all the face of the earth, and none did search or seek after them. Therefore, ye shepherds, hear the word of the Lord; As I live, saith the Lord God, surely because my flock became a prey, and my flock became meat to every beast of the field, because there was no shepherd, neither did my shepherds search for my flock, but the shepherds fed themselves, and fed not my flock; Therefore, O ye shepherds, hear the word of the Lord; Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against the shepherds; and I will require my flock at their hand, and cause them to cease from feeding the flock; neither shall the shepherds feed themselves any more; for I will deliver my flock from their mouth, that they may not be meat for them. (Ezekiel 34:1-10)
"Jesus answered, "Be careful! Don't let anyone fool you. Many people will come and use my name. They will say, 'I am the Messiah.' And they will fool many people. You will hear about wars that are being fought. And you will hear stories about other wars beginning. But don't be afraid. These things must happen before the end comes. Nations will fight against other nations. Kingdoms will fight against other kingdoms. There will be times when there is no food for people to eat. And there will be earthquakes in different places. These things are only the beginning of troubles, like the first pains of a woman giving birth.
"Then you will be arrested and handed over to be punished and killed. People all over the world will hate you because you believe in me. During that time many believers will lose their faith. They will turn against each other and hate each other. Many false prophets will come and cause many people to believe things that are wrong. There will be so much more evil in the world that the love of most believers will grow cold. But the one who remains faithful to the end will be saved. And the Good News I have shared about God's kingdom will be told throughout the world. It will be spread to every nation. Then the end will come. (Matthew 24:4-14)-(ERV)
There are but only the Few Seeking Truth According to God's Own Words this world of believers totally fail to believe and act on, and that is because Satan has totally overcome this entire world just as God tells all those who say that they believe, but they all believe only in their own minds with no obedience just as Christ states in Luke 6:49.
Written in Deuteronomy 8:3, Matthew 4:4 and Luke 4:4 is direction for all believers, and that means if it's not written its wrong and not of Christ who was the Rock in the Old Testament and The Word who has always been -Yet we have an entire world of believers in total division with zero love and zero obedience just thinking as they all please, acting as they all please and living as they all please while over-flowing with verses of scripture and lip love towards our Lord who by His own words they don't even know while hating with scorn and persecution any who tell them they are 100% wrong using the words of our Lord Jesus Christ directly written towards them all. . .
But all believers act as if those words of direction and warning were written for Jews or anyone but them; and that is what being in pure darkness under the psychological control of the god of this world has done to all on this earth whether believers or nonbelievers.
Want to hear more words from our Lord that you will not believe because believers all act as if they all know more than whom their lips falsely worship? Or is complete disobedience, pagan holidays, icy hearts, pride and acting superior when in darkness being obedient?
You best buckle up tight for these words because it's not going to be a smooth ride as your own coming destiny.
"When that Man of Evil comes, it will be the work of Satan. He will come with great power, and he will do all kinds of false miracles, signs, and wonders. The Man of Evil will use every kind of evil to fool those who are lost. They are lost because they refused to love the truth and be saved. So God will send them something powerful that leads them away from the truth and causes them to believe a lie. They will all be condemned because they did not believe the truth and because they enjoyed doing evil. (2 Thessalonians 2:9-12)
All believers on earth in Jesus Christ as our Lord and saviour will just simply say that they have been saved and forgiven - and that is all they know or have ever been taught because they themselves are simply sluggards (Proverbs 6:4-6) who know not God through His Spirit of truth; therefore follow their own human spirit given controlled by the god of this world. (2 Corinthians 2:10-16, Ephesians 2:2, 2 Corinthians 4:3-4, Revelation 12:9) - But even if I were to write endless words from our Lord to this world of believers, their own blindness will not see because they all follow the lies God has warned them all of; therefore all they can see is themselves who know more than what has been written.
Today and each day that passes only bring all human life closer to the beginning of humanities full end under the pathetic rule of man, and truth in scripture from God through me as a messenger under sin just as Paul in Romans 7:14-25 are being spoken for all believers to hear, but because most all hate genuine love beyond false lip love along with truth all hate even more -strong delusion is already at work in your mind that will lead all believers into hating the man of God. . .
"And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.
And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.
And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.
And after three days and an half the spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.
And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them. (Revelation 11:3-12)-(KJV)
Just how great is your faith that without God cannot be pleased? (Hebrews 11:6)
Is your faith great enough to be eagerly waiting this following promise being true just as all the words of our Lord?
"Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father. (John 14:12)
As the part of the body of Christ who only strives to follow my Head Jesus Christ, that makes me a part of the only true church of God with no division because all body parts need each other in order to properly function in one accord or full agreement. . . I am in wait to do even greater works than my Lord because He said as a believer I would; and true believers are not in word, but obedience as the only way to go from salvation to eternal salvation. (Hebrews 5:9)
The Holy Spirit inspires men's faith and imparts spiritual gifts
Now I want to give you some further information in some spiritual matters.
You have not forgotten that you were Gentiles, following dumb idols just as you had been taught. Now I want you to understand, as Christians, that no one speaking by the Spirit of God could call Jesus accursed, and no one could say that he is the Lord, except by the Holy Spirit.
Men have different gifts, but it is the same Spirit who gives them. There are different ways of serving God, but it is the same Lord who is served. God works through different men in different ways, but it is the same God who achieves his purposes through them all. Each man is given his gift by the Spirit that he may make the most of it.
One man's gift by the Spirit is to speak with wisdom, another's to speak with knowledge. The same Spirit gives to another man faith, to another the ability to heal, to another the power to do great deeds. The same Spirit gives to another man the gift of preaching the word of God, to another the ability to discriminate in spiritual matters, to another speech in different tongues. Behind all these gifts is the operation of the same Spirit, who distributes to each individual man, as he wills.
The human body is an example of organic unity
As the human body, which has many parts, is a unity, and those parts, despite their multiplicity, constitute one single body, so it is with the body of Christ. For we were all baptised by the Spirit into one body, whether we were Jews, Gentiles, slaves or free men, and we have all had experience of the same Spirit.
Now the body is not one member but many. If the foot should say, "Because I am not a hand I don't belong to the body," does that alter the fact that the foot is a part of the body? Of if the ear should say, "Because I am not an eye I don't belong to the body," does that mean that the ear really is no part of the body? After all, if the body were all one eye, for example, where would be the sense of hearing? Or if it were all one ear, where would be the sense of smell? But God has arranged all the parts in the one body according to his design. For if everything were concentrated in one part, how could there be a body at all? The fact is there are many parts, but only one body. So that the eye cannot say to the hand, "I don't need you!" nor, again, can the head say to the feet, "I don't need you!" On the contrary, those parts of the body which have no obvious function are the more essential to health: and to those parts of the body which seem to us to be less deserving of notice we have to allow the highest honour of function. The parts which do not look beautiful have a deeper beauty in the work they do, while the parts which look beautiful may not be at all essential to life! But God has harmonised the whole body by giving importance of function to the parts which lack apparent importance, that the body should work together as a whole with all the members in sympathetic relationship with one another. So it happens that if one member suffers all the other members suffer with it, and if one member is honoured all the members share a common joy.
Now you are together the body of Christ, and individually you are members of him. And in his Church God has appointed first some to be his messengers, secondly, some to be preachers of power, thirdly teachers. After them he has appointed workers of spiritual power, men with the gift of healing, helpers, organisers and those with the gift of speaking in "tongues".
As we look at the body of Christ do we find all are his messengers, all are preachers, or all teachers? Do we find all wielders of spiritual power, all able to heal, all able to speak with tongues, or all able to interpret the tongues? No, we find God's distribution of gifts is on the same principles of harmony that he has shown in the human body. You should set your hearts on the highest spiritual gifts, but I will show you what is the highest way of all. (1 Corinthians 12:1-31)
From what God has been teaching and showing me through these past six years of example regarding all the saved believers and just religious people of this world, the last verse being the highest spiritual gift is totally lacking in all believers actions; and just from God's own words believers will not, cannot and refuse to believe --- God cannot become known through His Spirit of truth.
Let's carefully read these next thirteen verses while examining ourselves very closely to see ourselves as God sees us all just as written in Psalms 14:2-3.
Let Love Be Your Guide
"I may speak in different languages, whether human or even of angels. But if I don't have love, I am only a noisy bell or a ringing cymbal. I may have the gift of prophecy, I may understand all secrets and know everything there is to know, and I may have faith so great that I can move mountains. But even with all this, if I don't have love, I am nothing. I may give away everything I have to help others, and I may even give my body as an offering to be burned. But I gain nothing by doing all this if I don't have love.
Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous, it does not brag, and it is not proud. Love is not rude, it is not selfish, and it cannot be made angry easily. Love does not remember wrongs done against it. Love is never happy when others do wrong, but it is always happy with the truth. Love never gives up on people. It never stops trusting, never loses hope, and never quits.
Love will never end. But all those gifts will come to an end-even the gift of prophecy, the gift of speaking in different kinds of languages, and the gift of knowledge. These will all end because this knowledge and these prophecies we have are not complete. But when perfection comes, the things that are not complete will end.
When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, and I made plans like a child. When I became a man, I stopped those childish ways. It is the same with us. Now we see God as if we are looking at a reflection in a mirror. But then, in the future, we will see him right before our eyes. Now I know only a part, but at that time I will know fully, as God has known me. So these three things continue: faith, hope, and love. And the greatest of these is love. (1 Corinthians 13:1-13)
Because of these following words we all as brothers and sisters need to understand. . .
"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. (Isaiah 55:8-9)
When we become part of the Body of our Lord Jesus Christ looking only to our Head for direction in this life, it is only then we become of the only true Church of God in this entire human race; and when that happens to us at this stage prior to His kingdom being set up, (Daniel 2:44) all that we as fellow believers in one accord can do is look to the Father in what to speak just as Christ - and from there all we know for certain through faith is that we are being led in only His words of truth while also knowing we can do nothing by ourselves - so through my past six years of being shaped, molded, taught led and tested over and over - My only instructor being my Head teaches only truth because I have absolutely zero association with man, his ways, doctrines, traditions or the things of this world because I do as instructed in Proverbs 2:4, 3:5-6, Ephesians 3:19, Colossians 3:1-4.
Because I can admit that I am a sinner while bowing in awe before our Father and His Glory we mere humans cannot even begin to speak or put into words, I do know His truth because I believe every word without man to change or interfere while deciding what is in context, what is not and all other human thoughts that only destroy God's truth to all - so my calling is to share God's truth to this world of unshepherded sheep that believe not God's warnings against false teachers all through the Bible, but these days will come as written. . .
"Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord: And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the Lord, and shall not find it. (Amos 8:11-12)
