Please Explain Your 501c3 Pastor

Please share this with your pastor. Ask him why he has joined his church with the state since prophecy says all that do this are apostate and the people within these churches need to “come out” of them.

Notice the prophecy:
Revelation 17:3, “So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.” In prophecy, a woman is defined as a church. Jeremiah 6:2 says, “I have likened the daughter of Zion to a comely and delicate woman.” And we also understand the Church of Jesus Christ is considered to be the “Bride of Christ” in many areas of Scriptures that lovingly describe her as such. It is also commonly understood by students of prophecy that our Lord also defines a beast to be a nation in His prophetic Word. For the prophet Daniel declared the following.

  • Daniel 7:17, “These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth.”
  • Daniel 7:23, “Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.”

Even in today’s world, nations are described as beasts. The two most recognized today would be the USA which has the bald eagle as its symbol and Russia who is likened unto a bear.

Many years ago, Daniel was given a vision about all the nations of the earth up till the end of time. I go into great detail about that vision which was a duplicate of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream on my “dream of a king” page (https://remnantofgod.org/daniel2.htm). In this vision, he saw the last or “fourth beast” as Daniel put it as a global nation which was to be “diverse from all the others.” (Daniel 7:19)

But how different would it be? According to Revelation 17:3, this beast, or as the prophecy illustrates, this final global power will have a woman riding it. That means there was to be a political power on earth that is a church and state mixed together that has churches in every nation on earth. As we know, there has only been one nation that fits this prophecy since 538AD. That is the nation called Vatican City which as we all know is also the headquarters of the Roman Catholic Church who has churches in every nation on earth. This is why Daniel declared it to be different than any other nation before or after it.

Now, here is where your apostate pastor comes in. Notice this next prophecy that was to be fulfilled in the last generation on earth. In Revelation 13:11 it says, “And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.”

Now I do not want this blog entry or the video I plan to make for it to be too long. But all students of prophecy already know the first beast is in fact the Vatican and this second beast is in fact the United States of America. But if you have not studied this up and need all the Bible verses that match with historic records that define why t comes out of the earth, why it has two horns like a lamb and how it speaks as a dragon, see my USA in Prophecy study (https://remnantofgod.org/usa-in-prophecy.htm) when you get time.

Now, notice what the prophecy says the USA will do so as to uplift the first beast in Rome when the time comes for it to enforce a mark upon all people. Revelation 13:15-16 says, “And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.  (16)  And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:”

If you need an in depth study regarding this mark as well as many videos about it and all the political actions that brought us to where we are right now, which is very close to that mark’s enforcement. See my mark of the beast page (https://www.remnantofgod.org/mark.htm).

In 1954, Lyndon Johnson set up what many call the Johnson Amendment which is also called the 501c3 Bill that allowed all pastors in the USA to gain a major tax exemption on everything from buying homes, church buildings and cars just to name a few. But the only way to receive the benefits the prophecy said these “preachers of filthy lucre” who “make merchandise*” of their church members clamor after was to literally create an image to the first beast in Rome by copying the Vatican’s church and state structure so as to have the same power the Popes had during the Inquisition. (*See Titus 1:11 & 2Peter 2:1-3)

On December 02, 2017, President Trump not only signed that 501c3 Bill into permanent law, he also granted the pastors the ability to lobby religious laws! And as we all know, every time the mark of the beast is mentioned in prophecy, the word worship is right there with it. For a more in depth info on this long prophesied image of the beast that all American pastors completely ignored due to their love of money, see the many videos and in depth study on my image of the beast page. (https://remnantofgod.org/image.htm)

And so, ask your pastor. Why did you join your church with the state to create an image to the beast? Why did you put your love of money over and above the love for the Lord and your church family in the exact same way prophecy said the disobedient pastors were to do?

Your pastor will not be able to answer that question. And so, it is now up to you to be the long-prophesied child of God who by your own actions literally fulfills a prophecy that speaks of the obedient Christian people that follow the Lamb of God withersoever He goeth to come out of the apostate churches. Revelation 18:4-5 says unto you that you must now “Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.  (5)  For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.”

 

3.

In this prophecy study, you will find prophecies that Jesus said MUST happen before His return to the earth to receive His Bride, the true remnant church. You will find that ALL prophecies listed here have been fulfilled, with the exception of the seven plagues of Revelation that occur directly before Jesus returns. I pray you will be blessed deeply by the truth provided in God's Holy Word.

The first two prophecies are well known among many Christians today to have already been fulfilled. Most of today's history books do in fact record this event as having occurred. However, they don't acknowledge the fact that Jesus prophesied this event 40 years prior to its actual fulfillment.

Unless otherwise noted, The Bible I'll be quoting from is the Authorized King James Version.

PROPHECY # 1
JESUS SAID BEFORE HE RETURNS, HIS FOLLOWERS IN JERUSALEM MUST FLEE TO THE MOUNTAINS, AND THEN JERUSALEM WILL BE DESTROYED

  • Matthew 24:15,16 "When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:"

HISTORIC FACT IS...


In A.D.66 when Cestius came against the city, but unaccountably withdrew, the Christians discerned in this the sign foretold by Christ, and fled while 1,100,000 Jews are said to have been killed in the terrible siege in A.D. 70. (The attack of the Roman warrior Titus occurred in 70AD killing the 1,100,000 Jews) Eusebius, Church History, book 3, chap. 5

The Christians living at the time Cestius came against the city, and then withdrew, understood exactly what was happening. They remembered the prophecy Jesus made in Matthew 24:15,16 and fled to the mountains before the Roman army returned in 70AD with Titus. Could it be Cestius was "casing the joint" as we say in today's lingo? For whatever reason, the Lord saw fit to warn His children in advance of this day and they glorified Him by believing His prophetic statements and fleeing as He suggested they should. As the history book records, we see that the non-believing Jews in the city saw no danger when Cestius stopped by. And because they chose to deny Jesus and ignore His prophecy, they paid for their disbelief with their very lives! 1,100,000 men, woman and children DIED when Titus returned to burn Jerusalem to the ground. They could have all been spared a horrible death had they just believed in this one mere prophecy of our Lord! Think about today and all the prophecies that have been fulfilled over the years in just our lifetime alone. What an honor to be loved so deeply by the Almighty Creator that He would warn us in advance like this.

After I read about this prophetic event as a young Christian, I understood the importance of prophecy and why the Lord saw fit to bless us with it. I actually saw two reasons for His prophecy.
     (1) PROPHECY GLORIFIES GOD IN HIS TRUTH
     (2) IT'S GOD'S PERFECT METHOD OF WARNING HIS CHILDREN!

When we see the Almighty's prophecy come to light with 100% accuracy like this, we see a true and awesome Creator who knows all, has created all, and does in fact see all. We also see a God that loves His children so much that He actually writes them a book that shares with them the one true and accurate method by which to live and prepare themselves for His eternal Kingdom which by the way, is VERY soon in coming as you will soon see.


 

Question: Why do you say that Sports are wrong?

ANSWER: Dear sister,
Sports today are a spin-off from the ancient Pagan games of the Romans that were held in the Coliseum wherein Christians were actually killed for sport. sports also breed competition, which fosters sin in everything from gambling to debasing the losers and exalting the winners. The gambling of today as well as the riots after big games proves sports are not sanctioned by the Lord. We are counseled in 1 Thessalonians 5:22 to “Abstain from all appearance of evil.” Sports have always been associated with evil activities from day one. The fact every alcohol sponsor makes millions of every game and scantily clad cheerleaders are a permanent fixture for every game proves this hands down. As Christians, we cannot have any part in such things.

Question: : What does it mean to be born again?

ANSWER:To be born again is to be born “a new” in Christ. For example, when you find Christ, all your old ways appear sinful to you and a new way of life becomes the norm. This is why it says in Romans 6:6-8 “Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.  7  For he that is dead is freed from sin.  8  Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him:”

The easiest way for me to illustrate this is to share a dream I had many years ago. In the dream I saw myself lying dead on the ground knowing that dead body was all about my past life. The body I was in at the time was a new body that was blessed as I walked forward in life “with Christ.” In other words, when I found Christ, it was as if I was literally born again. The things I used to do in the womb of the world were no longer important to me now that I was born in Christ. I actually saw life in a whole new light from that day forward. That my friend is what being born again means to me.

...continuing from last month

In the city the street lights and well-lit buildings and billboards block out most of the stars because they are very close to your own eyeballs as opposed to the faint specs of light in the Milky Way. It's as simple to understand as gravity. In fact, have you ever had a cop shine his flashlight in your face? All you see is that artificial light, right? You can't even see the cop standing 1 foot away! I know, that's happened to me a few times in my early days. Truth is, this is why all observatories are far outside cities. City lights pollute the air with so much glare you simply cannot see much of what's up there.

Now for the clincher in all this. Let’s get back to that International Space Station shall we? Look at the picture on the right. Do you see that massive blue world reflecting all the light from that massive ball of fire we call the SUN? Both those massive sources of light, be they reflective or point of origin, confirm it is physically impossible to see any specs of light whatsoever from all those far distant stars! And driving from Chicago to my neck of the woods on any given clear night can easily prove that to anyone who has the slightest bit of common sense still pulsating through their God given brains.

So... Why are they preaching a flat earth?
It's hard to figure why Satan preaches such things as this. But when you look into the science of it all and then those preaching it, you actually see a pattern. What I mean is. As I surfed the Internet and went about reading all sorts of data on the theory of the flat earth, one thing kept popping up. Evolutionism! Almost every person that preaches this strange theory are evolutionists! That's right, Satan has actually CONvinced some Christians to help him preach evolution, and they don't even know it. But then, with disobedience comes a loss of wisdom.

The best way I know to explain this is, I see that this story of a flat earth was originally invented to promote the idea that Christians are always against science. After all, we know we haven't come from apes, and we know what happened in creation week, and so some scientists have been moved by Satan to concoct the flat earth theology that can be attractive to Christians so as to eventually move them towards their way of thinking. You can see how this worked so well in history wherein the Vatican once taught flat earth and to this day declare evolution is scientifically sound! The scientists wanted to make it appear as if the Christians were denying hard science due to their doctrinal stands. They (the scientists) taught that even if rock hard scientific proof was confirmed, the Christians would deny it if it went against the Bible. But that's never been true. However, just as Rome was able to use Sunday Sabbath to get Christians to ignore and even come to no longer trust Scripture so as to embrace Sunday as the Sabbath, Satan was able to use the flat earth theology to get even more to look upon the Bible as inept and faulty. Problem is, we do have scientific data now today that confirms the earth is not flat and creation week can be proven plausible in a controlled laboratory environment. But Satan also knew there are many more uneducated walking the planet than there are educated. He also relies on the fact that in this age of convenience that some, even if they are educated, are just too lazy to do the legwork to prove the uneducated theorists wrong. Well.. I am not a lazy Christian, and that is why I posted this page on the site. We not only have Scriptural evidence to confirm the earth is a sphere, we now have scientific fact as well!

Some SDA's claim the flat earth message is a salvation issue
As hard as this may be to believe, some SDA's have started to declare the flat earth theory must be proclaimed so as to herald the arrival of Messiah, and some go so far as to declare it a "salvation issue." In other words, if you don't believe the earth is flat, or tell others it is flat, you will not gain Heaven. So, seeing how they are SDA, and of those that do understand Ellen White is a prophet, what does she say about this?

"I hope Brother Wilcox will be a truly converted man. This is his great need at the present time. He wants meekness, he wants humility, he wants genuine piety, and without it he is as sounding brass and a tinkling cymbal. His soul and your soul need the indwelling of Jesus. Whether the world is round or flat will not save a soul, but whether men believe and obey means everything."--Letter 43, 1887.

"The great question is, What shall I do that I may inherit eternal life? This is the science of what constitutes the higher education, and when this question is properly adjusted, the capabilities of the whole man are called into full exercise. There will be no agitation of the question whether the world is round or flat, but the whole burden of the soul is: What shall I do to inherit eternal life? We need now to make every talent that God has given us to be employed to His name's glory."  -- 21MR 414.5

"My answer was, "I have a message to this people in regard to the life they must live in this world to prepare them for future life which measures with the life of God. We have nought to do with the question whether this world is round or flat. [The important thing] is to serve God with full purpose of a renewed heart, sanctified and made holy by the cleansing blood of Jesus Christ."

Every issue will be brought in in various places by some persons who are not worked by the Spirit of God. Last night the Lord gave me words to speak to the people. Satan has a multitude of questions to bring in through various minds and ingenuity as all-important. Take the Word, plainly stating the truth for 1904; and the messenger that was sent of God had a message the same as the people need now. He was John the Baptist. --21MR 421.4,5

"There will be no agitation of the question whether the world is round or flat, but the whole burden of the soul is: What shall I do to inherit eternal life? We need now to make every talent that God has given us to be employed to His name's glory."  {21MR 414.5}

8. Who will be saved?
Mark 16:16 _______________________________________________
“Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.” John 3:5.
As an outward sign of an inward change, baptism is a public testimony that now you belong to Jesus. Its significance as the sign of the new birth is fully discussed in Romans 6. There Paul speaks of the transforming power of grace within the life of the believer. Baptism is also the means of becoming a member of the church (Compare Acts 2:41, 47).

9. What word, meaning “put in the grave,” is used to describe baptism?

Romans 6:4

Baptism symbolizes the death and burial of our sins. When a dead body is buried, it is more than sprinkled with dirt. For the same reason, we want our sins to be completely buried.
The word baptism itself means to immerse. It was used in the textile industry long before the days of John the baptist. When cloth was “baptized” in the dye, it was not just sprinkled, but completely immersed in it.

10. What word in verse 5 means buried?
Romans 6:5 ______________________________________________

11. Why was John baptizing in Aenon?
John 3:23 _______________________________________________
If John had been sprinkling, he would not have needed much water.

12. As Jesus came up out of the water following His baptism, what did He see?
Mark 1:10 ________________________________________________
               
13. What must be done to all nations before they are baptized?
Matthew 28:19 ____________________________________________
God wants His people to be intelligent in regard to His truth. They are to be taught “to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you,” He says. Matthew 28:20.

Baptism signifies conversion. Conversion requires the cooperation of the will. Under the conviction of the Holy Spirit, the person chooses to consecrate his life to God. He renounces his sins and by the power of God is born again to new life in Christ.

The story of the Ethiopian eunuch (Acts 8:26-39) is an inspiring account of a man searching for truth. As he read the Scriptures, the Lord directed Philip to him to present the gospel of Jesus. Convicted of his need of Christ, the eunuch asked to be baptized. So Philip baptized him in a nearby body of water.
