The Time is Now !

     “Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples . . . and they are written for our admonition , upon whom the ends of the world are come !”     I Corinthians 10:11

     ” When the children of Israel were gathered out from among the Egyptians, the LORD said: “For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the first-born in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I Am the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah).”

And ye shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the basin, and strike the lintel and the two side posts with the blood that is in the basin; and none of you shall go out at the door of his house until the morning. For the LORD will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when He seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the LORD will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you . . . . And ye shall observe this thing for an ordinance to thee and to thy sons forever.” Exodus 12:12, 22-24.

The blood upon the lintel of the door symbolized the blood of Christ, Who alone saved the first-born of the Hebrews from the curse. Any one of the children of the Hebrews who was found in an Egyptian habitation was destroyed.

This experience of the Israelites was written for the instruction of those who should live in the last days (I Corinthians 10:11). Before the overflowing scourge shall come upon the dwellers of the earth, the Lord calls upon all who are Israelites indeed to prepare for that event.

To parents He sends the warning cry: Gather your children into your own houses; gather them away from those who are disregarding the commandments of God, who are teaching and practicing evil. Get out of the large cities as fast as possible. Establish church schools. Give your children the Word of God as the foundation of all their education. This is full of beautiful lessons, and if pupils make it their study in the primary grade below, they will be prepared for the higher grade above !”

Preparing for the Loud Cry !

     “And after these things, I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power . . . . and the earth was lightened with his glory . . . !”   Revelation 18:1-4

     “Let every one who claims to believe that the Lord is soon coming, search the Scriptures as never before; for Satan is determined to try every device possible to keep souls in darkness, and blind the mind to the perils of the times in which we are living . . . and the Light of the righteousness of Christ . . . !

      Let every believer take up his Bible with earnest prayer, that he may be enlightened by the Holy Spirit as to what is Truth, that he may know more of God and of Jesus Christ Whom He has sent. Search for the Truth as for hidden treasures, and disappoint the enemy.

Sanctify them through Thy Truth . . . Thy Word is Truth (Verity, of a surety) !”   John 17:17

     The time of test is just upon us, for the loud cry of the third angel has already begun in the revelation (revealing) of the righteousness of Christ, the sin-pardoning Redeemer. This is the beginning of the Light of the angel whose glory shall fill the whole earth. For it is the work of every one to whom the message of warning has come, to lift up Jesus, to present Him to the world as revealed in types, as shadowed in symbols, as manifested in the revelations of the prophets, as unveiled in the lessons given to His disciples and in the wonderful miracles wrought for the sons of men. Search the Scriptures; for they are they that testify of Him.

If you would stand through the time of trouble, you must know Christ, and appropriate (by faith as your very own) the gift of His righteousness, which He imputes to the repentant sinner !”       ref: Revelation 14:6-13, Jeremiah 23:5-6 & Hebrews 4:1-10

The Economy of Heaven ?


Can God be trusted ?

     “Ask, and ye shall receive . . . . Seek and ye shall find; Knock, and it shall be opened unto you !
Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom.

   For with the same measure that ye mete withal (give unto others), so shall it be measured to you again !”     Matthew 7:7 & Luke 6:38

Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon this earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal.
But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through and steal . . . . For where your treasures are hidden, there will your heart be also . . . !”     Matthew 6:19-21
