to augment the conversation, On The Breakage of the Holy Catholic Church )
October 23, 1994
I don't know whether you have taken the time to digest the letter I sent concerning the Mehl Commentary of 9/12/94, but, regardless, I have composed this part to further explain what was in that commentary. The commentary had to do with seeing through the darkness, and since there is so much to the subject it is necessary that I cast a bit more light on it.
My work dwells upon Truth, which is light, and the Truth upon which I dwell does not involve grey areas as it were, as you may have been inclined or taught to believe.
The Seat of Christianity, of course, is based upon this message. Witness:
John 3.33 He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true.
4.24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
John 8.32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
John 5.39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.
5.40 And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.
John 6.38 For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.
Beginning with the Quest , together with this Commentary on Mehl's work, we unveil details of what has been known in scriptural parlance as the Apocalypse.
At the time of the Apocalypse the dead are raised and judged, together with the living. Speaking of that day--following Daniel 7 and 12 on page 26 of my 9/12/94 portion Jesus said:
John 5.28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,
5.29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
This judgment is further explained in Revelation 19 and 20, to wit:
Rev. 20.12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the Book of Life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
Luke 16.31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.
Now the Truth is something of the Spirit in which God is manifest. When we use the word manifest, we mean to say a revelation of something hidden. In these terms the Book of Revelation presents itself as a manifestation of the Truth, to which nothing can be added nor anything taken away. This is, of course, a foundation of God, that when He manifests Himself to man what he manifests can neither be added to nor taken away. We played with this word in Against Leviathan , relating manifest to the contents of our ship of state which is sinking. I asked Captain Buckley whether he ought to warn the passengers. In the exchange between him and me, we concluded that even if a Jonah came to them they would not answer. I continued pressing him, that nevertheless he should warn the passengers, calling him a Watchman . He replied that I should warn them; I responded that no one would believe me, but since he is a leader they would believe him. He replied that he could do nothing, because Prudential calls. Prudential is a major financial interest on Wall Street, so he confessed that Mammon is his priority-- regardless of the lives now in jeopardy which he might save. Thus, Captain Buckley and I knew something which will devastate this nation, and he left that problem in another's hands to resolve.
God manifests Himself in our Spirit through a thing called Light which is His Word and a thing you should understand perfectly and thereby understand me. When you see that Light you see a manifestation of God.
I have not written to you because you know not the truth, but because you know it, and that no lie is of the truth [1 John 2.21]. This is what I meant in my letter when I said I think you and I are about to make a connection, that I carry certain light which is of the Truth. Its message is clear and better explained by the following:
Rev. 19.10 I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of Prophecy.
Jer. 1.2 To whom the Word of the LORD came..
Ezek. 1.3 The Word of the LORD came expressly unto Ezekiel the priest..
Hosea 1.1 The Word of the LORD that came unto Hosea...
Joel 1.1 The Word of the LORD that came to Joel..
Jonah 1.1 Now the Word of the LORD came unto Jonah..
Micah 1.1 The Word of the LORD that came to Micah..
Zeph. The Word of the LORD which came unto Zephaniah..
Haggai 1.3 Then came the Word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet..
Zech. 1.1 In the eighth month, in the second year of Darius, came the Word of the LORD unto Zechariah..
John 1.1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
1.2 The same was in the beginning with God.
1.3 All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made.
1.4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
1.5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
Except for certain anomalies in the Epistles of Paul, all of the Scriptures in the Bible are One Word. They all convey One Message. To understand the Light of the One Message one must be open to receive all of it. Most pastors are not open to all of it--as seen in Hidden Pavilions and my exchange with Buckley and others.
Eccl. 2.13 Then I saw that wisdom excelleth folly, as far as light excelleth darkness.
2.14 The wise man's eyes are in his head; but the fool walketh in darkness..
5.1 Keep thy foot when thou goest to the house of God, and be more ready to hear, than to give the sacrifice of fools: for they consider not that they do evil.
I Peter 4.17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the House of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the Gospel of God?
The Scattering of Israel and the manifestation of Immanuel;
The Deliverance of Israel and the Judgment of the Gentile who persecuted them.
Now all of this, the Bible and current events, came through The Word of the LORD. First the Law, then the scattering of the Jews and the manifestation of Immanuel, and now the restoration of the Jews in 1948; all of this came about because of the prophesies in the Bible. God caused Israel's scattering and their restoration. You should marvel at this, since in Philistia Triumph Thou because of me we show how the UN Law which created Israel came about through the invocation of certain promises in the Holy Scriptures! Without those Scriptures Israel would not exist! By the same token, because of ignorance of the Holy Scriptures there is much bloodshed over Jerusalem, and this bloodshed will continue until the ignorance is consumed. We have mentioned in our previous letters and works that there will be no Peace in Jerusalem until certain points of Light in the Bible are honored. We also said with reference to our conversation with Buckley and others that their children's blood will be spilled before Jerusalem because of their ignorance of those points of light. See Philistia Triumph thou because of me on this. This Apocalypse does not concern Jerusalem in an abstract concept which is far from you, but to the contrary it strikes every nation and, to those who disbelieve us, it will strike those most dear to them. We explain this later in this work.
The restoration of the Jews was only part of the Promise of the Last Days. Our work has to do with the delivery of the other part of that Promise and covenant. And it is in these terms that I described to you in my letters--even my 60 page letter of March 1992--that I am compelled to labor in darkness--because there is so much ignorance of the work. I have explained to you fully why this is so, that wheresoever I inquired I received no answer. For I have been writing to the spiritually dead, as I complained in the Quest .
Just as the Pharisees in Jesus's time, men today go through the motions of the worship of God but in reality fear His light. Otherwise they would [have] answer[ed] me.
To your pastors and Buckley's I have laid the light on the table in very certain terms. But they cower from it and therefore cannot see its brilliance. Come up hither, I say to them.
I assume that you have understood Mehl, and therefore you should have no problem whatsoever in either understanding me or taking an interest in what I say.
I told Buckley that you are judged by what you know and that it is God's job, as it were, to assure that you know. He lets you know by means of His prophets. In other words, He lets you know by His Word. Here we show that the Word revealed through His Prophets is no different than that Word revealed through Christ. Christ is as it were the Spirit of Prophesy or, in other terms, the Head of a Great Troop of Prophets. He is shown in this manifestation in Chapter 19 and 20 of Revelation. In the latter chapter He is identified with an event called the First Resurrection and with Him a Great Troop , as explained in Hidden Pavilions and elsewhere. The First Resurrection is the beginning of the Judgment of the Gentile. In the center of that episode--that is, at the center of the Judgment of the Gentile--we placed this nation. Our reason, as said, was based upon the premise that to whom much is given much is required. The Quest , with this commentary on Mehl, explains this. Central to our judgment is the exposure of false pastors. If you will turn to page 8 of my last letter, you will see that I spoke of my burden in two parts, and the second part having to do with exposing false pastors. There are scriptural foundations behind this, which I shall now cite. I recite scriptures, by the way, because I know that by merely referencing them most people are too lazy to look them up and read them. Hence we write against the Lazy Reader who is ignorance:
Ezek. 34.2..Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! Should not the shepherds feed the flocks?
34.3 Ye eat the fat, and ye clothe you with the wool, ye kill them that are fed: but ye feed not the flock.
34.4 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.
34.5 And they were scattered, because there is no shepherd: and they became meat to all the beasts of the field, when they were scattered.
34.7 Therefore, ye shepherds, hear the Word of the LORD;
34.8 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;
34.9 Therefore, O ye shepherds, hear the word of the LORD;
34.10 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.
34.11 For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out.
34.12 As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the Cloudy and Dark Day.
34.13 And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them from the countries, and will bring them to their own land, and feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in all the inhabited places of the country.
34.15 I will feed my flock, and I will cause them to lie down, saith the Lord GOD.
34.16 I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick: but I will destroy the fat and the strong; I will feed them with judgment.
He complains about the shepherds (pastors) who are feeding on his flock and not feeding his flock, causing the flock (Israel) to be scattered;
He gathers back His Flock and feeds them upon the mountains He promised them;
He takes His wrath out on all the shepherds among the nations who did not feed His Flock.
We continue our expression against the shepherds of the nations:
Zech. 11.16 For, lo, I will raise up a shepherd in the land, which shall not visit those that be cut off, neither shall seek the young one, nor heal that that is broken, nor feed that that standeth still: but he shall eat the flesh of the fat, and tear their claws in pieces.
11.17 Woe to the idol shepherd that leaveth the flock!
Matt. 18.11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.
18.12 How think ye? If a man have an hundred sheep and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray?
18.13 And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray.
18.14 Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish [see also Luke 15.3-6; ed. note].
I can confirm that the little ones so denied are more than Jesus allowed.
First among them condemned are those first in sin (the false pastors). A wonderful one volume Commentary on the Bible, edited by J. R. Dummelow, MacMillan Publishing Co., Inc. NY, 1908, sheds light on this precept of condemning the first in line in sin. Referring to an obscure verse, Amos 6.7, they translate the Hebrew to mean:
Dummelow p. 568 First in sin, first in punishment
MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHÄRSIN.
MENE: God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it.
TEKEL: Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting.
PERES; Thy kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and Persians.
Hosea 11.10 ..when He shall roar, then the children shall tremble from the West.
Dummelow p. 554 [on Hosea 11.10] In Amos 3.8 the same figure is used of God's threatening through the prophet. Here it is used of His calling for His people out of captivity, the point of comparison being the earnest longing on God's part, reverential awe on man's. Shall tremble 'shall come trembling' .
Amos 3.6 Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? Shall there be evil in a city, and the LORD hath not done it?
3.7 Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but He revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.
3.8 The lion hath roared, who will not fear? The Lord GOD hath spoken, who can but prophesy?
3.10..they know not to do right, saith the LORD, who store up violence and robbery in their palaces.
Isaiah 52.8 Thy watchmen shall lift up the voice; with the voice together shall they sing: for they shall see eye to eye, when the LORD shall bring again Zion.
Those who do not answer to our Truths cannot very well be trusted to see eye to eye with the LORD of Truth on other matters. It is a simple means of judgment, such as with a commander who regathers his troops to review the next steps in a battle plan. The step at hand is to remove those false pastors described above and those who forgot YHVH. How this shall be done is the subject of the Apocalypse , and our first step is to call out to the Watchmen to see if there are any who are on His Walls guarding His Holy Scriptures. We have found the American pastors and their nation lacking; and we doubted Pastor Mehl, who said he was on the walls watching over the flock for Christ, because we doubted he--as with many other pastors-- would respond to the appeal in our scriptures. These false pastors, in fact, meet the following which was pronounced against them ages ago:
Isaiah 56.7..for mine house shall be called an House of Prayer for all people.
56.8 The Lord GOD which gathereth the outcasts of Israel saith, Yet will I gather others to him, beside those that are gathered unto him.
56.9 All ye beasts of the field, come to devour, yea, all ye beasts in the forest.
56.10 His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.
56.11 Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter.
Pastor Mehl claims his place, as did others, upon the walls with Christ through the following verse:
Isaiah 62.6 I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night: ye that make mention of the LORD, keep not silence.
Zech.1.7..came the Word of the LORD unto Zechariah, the son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo the prophet, saying,
1.8 I saw by night, and behold a man riding upon a red horse, and he stood among the myrtle trees that were in the bottom; and behind him were there red horses, speckled, and white.
1.9 Then said I, O my lord, what are these? And the angel that talked with me said unto me, I will shew thee what these be.
1.10 And the man that stood among the myrtle trees answered and said, These are they whom the LORD hath sent to walk to and fro through the earth.
1.11 And they answered the angel of the LORD that stood among the myrtle trees, and said, We have walked to and fro through the earth, and, behold, all the earth sitteth still, and is at rest.
1.12 Then the angel of the LORD answered and said, O LORD of hosts, how long wilt thou not have mercy on Jerusalem and on the cities of Judah, against which thou hast had indignation these threescore and ten years?
1.13 And the LORD answered the angel that talked with me with good words and comfortable words.
1.14 So the angel that communed with me said unto me, Cry thou, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; I am jealous for Jerusalem and for Zion with a great jealousy.
1.15 And I am very sore displeased with the heathen that are at ease: for I was but a little displeased, and they helped forward the affliction.
1.16 Therefore thus saith the LORD; I am returned to Jerusalem with mercies: my house shall be built in it, saith the LORD of hosts, and a line shall be stretched forth upon Jerusalem.
2.10 Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion: for, lo, I come, and I will dwell in the midst of thee, saith the LORD.
2.11 And many nations shall be joined to the LORD in that day, and shall be my people; and I will dwell in the midst of thee, and thou shalt know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto thee.
2.5 For I, saith the LORD, will be unto her a wall of fire round about, and will be the glory in the midst of her.
John 1.17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
1.18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
1.19 And this is the condemnation that light is come into the world and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
1.20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
1.21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought of God.
Among the private letters where the lady appears, which I mentioned in my last letter, I was told that I would be a makeweight, that pastors would be weighed against me. In simple terms I would shine a light at the walls to see if I get any answer. This follows the precept of searching Jerusalem with candles. There has yet to be an answer to the light. For the light exposes false shepherds and those who are false run from the light--as was the case of Buckley and his bishop--or the false shepherds ignore the light altogether. The simple measure in all this, of course, is that he that doeth truth cometh to the light. There is no one who doeth truth. All men are liars I complained privately.
Alif Lam Ra. These are the verses of the Book, the Glorious Koran:
The day will surely come when the unbelievers will wish that they were Muslims. Let them feast and make merry; and let their hopes beguile them. They shall know the truth.
Never have We destroyed a nation whose term of life was not ordained beforehand. Men cannot forestall their doom, nor can they retard it.
They say: 'You to whom the warning was revealed, you are surely possessed. Bring down the angels, if what you say be true.'
We shall send down the angels only when Our judgment has been passed. Then they shall never be reprieved.
It was We that revealed the Koran, and shall Ourself preserve it. We have sent forth apostles [prophets] before you to the older nations: but they scoffed at each apostle We sent them. Thus We will put doubt in the hearts of the guilty: they will deny their apostle despite the example of the ancients...
We ordain life and death. We are the Heir of all things.
We know those who have gone before you, and those who will come hereafter. Your Lord will gather them all before Him. He is wise and all-knowing.
Dummelow p. 774 [referring to John 1-18]
(1) The Hebrew-speaking Jews were familiar with the idea that God reveals Himself to the world through His Memra , or Word , which they distinguished from Himself as His organ of revelation. The Targums of the Old Testament speak, not of Jehovah [YHVH] but of the Memra of Jehovah, as being manifested to Abraham, Hagar, Isaac, Jacob, and to Moses at the bush. St. John's preface, therefore, proclaimed to the Hebrew, 'That Memra of Jehovah, which appeared to the patriarchs and prophets, was no other than Christ before His Incarnation'.
(2) The educated Greek-speaking Jews (Hellenists) were familiar with the writings of the Jewish philosopher, Philo of Alexandria (circa. 15 B.C.- 50 A.D.). He believed that God does not act upon the world directly, but mediately through His Logos or Reason. To the Hellenist, therefore, St. John's Gospel said, 'That Logos , through which you say God acts upon the world and reveals himself in it, is no other than Christ.' (3) Educated heathen also believed in a divine Logos or Reason , diffused through the world, and disposing all things in a rational order. First Heraclitus, then Plato, and finally the Stoics developed this doctrine, until, in the apostolic age, it was the explanation of the universe commonly accepted by educated persons. To the heathen, therefore, St. John's preface said, 'That divine Logos , which inspired your philosophers, so far as they have spoken truly and whose existence is admitted by all educated men, has finally manifested Himself in the life of Jesus of Nazareth. Read the account that follows of His wonderful life and sayings, and you will acknowledge that this is true...'
When I spoke of the Heirs in my letter, I referred to myself as being with them yet alone. I referred to myself as a minister to the ministry, which in the ministry's terms is a bishop. I complained that the modern ministry have castigated, or profaned, the Law of Moses and its prophets. As against the false shepherds, hear another part of that word:
Malachi 2.7 For the priest's lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the law at his mouth: for he is the messenger of the LORD of hosts.
2.8 But ye are departed out of the way: ye have caused many to stumble at the law; ye have corrupted the covenant of Levi, saith the LORD of hosts.
2.9 Therefore have I also made you contemptible and base before all the people, according as ye have not kept my ways, but have been partial in the law.
2.10 Have we not all one father? Hath not one God created us? Why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother, by profaning the covenant of our fathers?
Dummelow p. 614 [on Malachi 2.7-8] Hag. 2.7 Messenger--compare Hag. 1.13:
[Hag. 1.13--Then spake Haggai the LORD's messenger in the LORD's message unto the people, saying, I am with you, saith the LORD.
1.14 And the LORD stirred up the spirit of Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and the spirit of Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, and the spirit of all the remnant of the people; and they came and did work in the House of the LORD of hosts, their God.]
Hag. 2.8. Ye have caused many to stumble--i.e. by giving unjust decisions the priests have brought many to ruin. With the charge of partiality in verse 9 contrast the ideal of Deut. 33.9, where it is represented as a priest's duty to give his decisions without regard to his nearest relatives: compare Matthew 10.37:
[Mt. 10.37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 10.38 He that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me].
Now Jesus' way of measuring false pastors was to simply ask them to follow him, which meant that they would have to give up everything: family, property, and friends. This is the Christ whom your pastors have introduced you to.
As having identified myself among the Heirs, knowing that you now know the definition of the thing we had in mind when we listed it, and that the word we carry is eternal, let us go more into the Logos [Greek, meaning Word ] which is also called Memra in Hebrew and the Christ:
John 3.15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Let's refer again to Dummelow's understanding of this thing called eternal life granted to those who follow Christ, the Word of God:
Dummelow p 780 [on John 3.15] Eternal life. This expression, though found in the other Gospels (Mt. 19.16, etc.) and in the Pauline Epistles (Ro. 2.7, etc.), is specially characteristic of St. John. It is that state of blissful communion with God, which is enjoyed by the believer who is reconciled to God through faith in Christ. The New Testament generally speaks of it as a future possession, but St. John often regards it as possessed already to some extent in this world. 'Eternal ', lit. 'Aeonian,' means not simply 'endless,' but 'belonging to the world to come,' and so 'supernatural,', 'spiritual,' 'heavenly.'
We say that the Words we use are eternal on page 18 of the Mehl Commentary , referring to a previous statement that the communion between God and Man is through reason [sic. Logos ], who is eternal. To appreciate more of what is implied in this, let us again refer to Dummelow's commentary on the Word of God:
Dummelow p. 774 ..[on John 1] This sublime preface is intended to commend 'the truth as it is in Jesus,' both to Jewish and Gentile minds. It describes our Lord's person and office by a term familiar to both, that of the Logos or Word of God. 'Logos' has two meanings in Greek: (1) reason or intelligence, as it exists inwardly in the mind, and (2) reason or intelligence, as it is expressed outwardly in speech. Both these meanings are to be understood when Christ is called 'the Word of God.' He is the inward Word of God, because He exists from all eternity 'in the bosom of the Father,' as much one with Him as reason is one with the reasoning mind. Nothing is so close to a man as his own thought.
II Peter 1.19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:
1.20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
1.21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
Now Light is measured by its brilliance, and as noted in our Mehl Commentary a thousand fools do not equate to the brilliance of one wise man. America's pastors are fools for the most part, so it does not take much brilliance to outshine them. We mention this because our argument builds upon the Word of God which is Light and as Christ it is a Great Light being magnified no doubt by the abundance of fools.
To Ezekiel and the other prophets YHVH is a God who humbles the mighty and raises the lowly. He does this not only in his relationship one to one with you, for instance, but He also conducts Himself this way with cities and nations. He can cause a great city to prostrate itself as easily as a man. Witness:
Isaiah 26.2. Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation which keepeth the truth may enter in.
26.3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.
26.4 Trust ye in the LORD forever: for in the Lord JHVH is everlasting strength:
26.5 For he bringeth down them that dwell on high; the lofty city, he layeth it low; he layeth it low, even to the ground; he bringeth it even to the dust.
26.6 The foot shall tread it down, even the feet of the poor, and the steps of the needy.
26.9 With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early: for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.
26.10 Let favor be shewed to the wicked, yet will he not learn righteousness; in the land of uprightness will he deal unjustly, and will not behold the majesty of the LORD.
The other thing we mentioned to you was that I am on the stairs before a Golden Gate. We listed that Gate in many of our writings, beginning with Hidden Pavilions. By measure of Isaiah 26.2 and the ministry's coldness to me it is clear that your pastors' gates are closed to Truth. Otherwise they would invite me to come in.
We have mentioned that I am a book. But your pastors will not take me up. They have shut their doors to Truth, that is, the Spirit which is within me, and these are the prophets.
II Peter 2.21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.
John 3.19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world and men loved darkness more than light, because their deeds were evil..
Isaiah 27.1 In that day the LORD with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish Leviathan the piercing serpent, even Leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.
Isaiah 19.2 And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians: and they shall fight every one against his brother, and every one against his neighbor; city against city, and kingdom against kingdom
Malachi 2.10 Have we not all one father? Hath not one God created us? Why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother, by profaning the covenant of our fathers?
Matt. 24.7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
Neglect of the terms which justify both Arab and Jew only brings forth more bombings and bloodshed, brother against brother, until everyone is involved. Let us hear Dummelow's interpretation of Malachi 2.10 quoted above (ye have caused many to stumble at the law):
Dummelow p. 614 [on Malachi 2.10] Malachi seems to have in view mainly such evils as are described in Neh. 5..a man must learn to love his brother before he can love his enemy.
In this nation today the people are simply being stripped of their wealth by their governors; and that wealth is being consolidated into fewer and fewer hands, most of whom are multinational companies who raid one nation after another as a raging fire consuming one forest after another (both people and nations are described as trees and forests, by the way). In Hidden Pavilions I said that behind me is a firebrand. It is already burning. In the course of the consummation poverty will increase and eventually the violence of the poverty will bring down many cities, and after the cities will burn the nations. Brotherly love will wane as the increase of poverty spreads, as discussed on the last page of the Mehl Commentary and our Buckley Series.
From this we can understand John better:
1 John 2.10 He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him.
3.9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
3.10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.
3.11 For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love on another...
3.14..He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.
Jeremiah 18.7 At what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, and to pull down, and to destroy it;
18.8 If that nation, against whom I have pronounced, turn from their evil, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do unto them.
18.9 And at what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it;
18.10 If it do evil in my sight, that it obey not my voice, then I will repent of the good, wherewith I said I would benefit them.
Jeremiah 18.11..Thus saith the LORD; behold, I frame evil against you, and devise a device against you: return ye now every one from his evil way, and make your ways and your doings good.
Your pastors like to believe that they are beyond reproach, that any reproach against this nation cannot reflect upon them (as so the pharisees believed also). Let me then explain what I said on page 20 having to do with the cornerstone of salvation. It first has to do with sweeping away the refuge of liars, the pastors who deny the Word of the LORD:
Isaiah 28.16 Therefore, thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.
28.17 Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.
28.18 And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it.
28.22 Now therefore be ye not mockers, lest your bands be made strong: for I have heard from the Lord GOD of hosts a consumption, even determined upon the whole earth.
Daniel 3.44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of Heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever.
1 John 2.2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for our's only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
2.3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.
2.4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
2.5 But whoso keepeth his word in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.
1 John 2.21 I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth.
Malachi 3.6 For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.
Dummelow p 615. [Malachi 3.6] I change not better, 'I have not changed.' The therefore in the following clause is wrong: the Hebrew has 'but you (emphatic) 'are not consumed.' As this yields no antithesis, it is not improbable that there is a corruption in the text. The argument seems to be, 'I have not changed, but you have not kept your part of the covenant; you have not performed my words.'
John 5.28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,
5.29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
