FALSE PROPHETS: “YE SHALL KNOW THEM BY THEIR FRUITS”

Mat 7:15  Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Mat 7:16  Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Mat 7:17  Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.     The specific “fruits” of these particular false prophets that the Lord warns the remnant of Israel about will fall into more than one category or type. For this reason the Lord uses the plural word “fruits” when He tells the remnant, “Ye shall know them by their fruits.” Moreover each of these categories of their false teachings and prophecies will have a direct connection to the major progressive developments that will be going on during...

THE MAGNIFYING AND PROVOKING MINISTRY OF PAUL

Rom 11:11  I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy. Rom 11:12  Now if the fall of them be the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fulness? Rom 11:13  For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office: Rom 11:14  If by any means I may provoke to emulation them which are my flesh, and might save some of them.     The context of Romans 11:13–14, (where Paul particularly speaks about personally ‘provoking’ those of his flesh), has to do with what God has him teach us regarding the temporary nature of the suspension of Israel’s program,...

PREACHING THE LORD UNTO THE GRECIANS?

Act 11:19  Now they which were scattered abroad upon the persecution that arose about Stephen travelled as far as Phenice, and Cyprus, and Antioch, preaching the word to none but unto the Jews only. Act 11:20  And some of them were men of Cyprus and Cyrene, which, when they were come to Antioch, spake unto the Grecians, preaching the Lord Jesus. Act 11:21  And the hand of the Lord was with them: and a great number believed, and turned unto the Lord.       As you undoubtedly know, after describing in Acts 8:1 to 11:18 that His program with Israel did not continue on as it was expected to do, and as it was prophesied to do, following the vision that He gave to Stephen; (but instead by what did happen God made it clearly evident that He was doing something...

THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES: ACTS 7 AND 8

Act 8:1  And Saul was consenting unto his death. And at that time there was a great persecution against the church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered abroad throughout the regions of Judaea and Samaria, except the apostles. Act 8:2  And devout men carried Stephen to his burial, and made great lamentation over him. Act 8:3  As for Saul, he made havock of the church, entering into every house, and haling men and women committed them to prison. Act 8:4  Therefore they that were scattered abroad went every where preaching the word.   In view of the prophesied time of “repentance to Israel” that God was giving to His nation during the time covered by the opening seven chapters of the Book of Acts, (which specifically commenced on the Day of Pentecost...

ISRAEL’S FIRST LESSON IN GOD’S JEHOVAH-NESS

Exo 15:22  So Moses brought Israel from the Red sea, and they went out into the wilderness of Shur; and they went three days in the wilderness, and found no water. Exo 15:23  And when they came to Marah, they could not drink of the waters of Marah, for they were bitter: therefore the name of it was called Marah. Exo 15:24  And the people murmured against Moses, saying, What shall we drink? Exo 15:25  And he cried unto the LORD; and the LORD shewed him a tree, which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet: there he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he proved them, Exo 15:26  And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his...

THE SWEET INFLUENCES OF PLEIADES AND THE ZODIAC

Job 38:29  Out of whose womb came the ice? and the hoary frost of heaven, who hath gendered it? Job 38:30  The waters are hid as with a stone, and the face of the deep is frozen. Job 38:31  Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion? Job 38:32  Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons? Job 38:33  Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven? canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth?     In view of the context in which God asks Job, “Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?” it is my understanding that they are two of the many ‘ordinance powers’ of the firmament of heaven, which are not only integral components of the very structural...

THE LORD’S BATTLE WITH ISRAEL’S ENEMIES

  Exo 17:7 And he called the name of the place Massah, and Meribah, because of the chiding of the children of Israel, and because they tempted the LORD, saying, Is the LORD among us, or not?   Exo 17:8 Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim.   Exo 17:9 And Moses said unto Joshua, Choose us out men, and go out, fight with Amalek: to morrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in mine hand.   Exo 17:10 So Joshua did as Moses had said to him, and fought with Amalek: and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill.   Exo 17:11 And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed: and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed.   Once God had victoriously brought Israel out of Egypt by single-handedly...

PETER AND PAUL WRITING TO THE SAME PEOPLE? ~PETER WRITING FROM BABYLON?

Gal 2:7  But contrariwise, when they saw that the gospel of the uncircumcision was committed unto me, as the gospel of the circumcision was unto Peter; Gal 2:8  (For he that wrought effectually in Peter to the apostleship of the circumcision, the same was mighty in me toward the Gentiles:) Gal 2:9  And when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given unto me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship; that we should go unto the heathen, and they unto the circumcision.   This kind of objection is common, with the assumption being made that Peter and Paul must have wrote to the exact same people in the Galatian area. But it is evident from what Paul says in his epistle to the Galatians, and from what Peter...

THE TITLE “HOLY GHOST” NOT USED IN REVELATIONS?

      Joh 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.   Joh 14:24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.   Joh 14:25 These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.   Joh 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.   Joh 14:27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.   Primarily I am...

THE DEFINITION OF TITLES JESUS CHRIST AND CHRIST JESUS

    Eph 1:1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus:   Eph 1:2 Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.   Eph 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:   Eph 1:4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:   Eph 1:5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,   Eph 1:6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.   Though we today...
