The Cross and Noah’s Ark vs. the Titanic (Part 2)
April 07, 2012
We have just come through a celebration of the death and resurrection of Jesus, which we call Easter. This is the first time it has been at the same time as Passover and the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, that great iron vessel named for the pagan god, Titan, of the Babylonian System of world empires. Does this not send out a warning about the critical nature of the present time, as described in Bible prophecy?
The Bible defines these latter days as being like the days of Noah when the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and their hearts were set on evil continually. The earth was filled with violence, so the Lord said, “I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping thing and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them (Genesis 6:7).” Yet, Noah was saved for he found grace in the eyes of the Lord (see Genesis 6:8).
The inheritance of Garden ruler-ship was bestowed upon the first son and daughter of man. They were blessed by receiving the gift of life as human beings created in the image of God for the purpose of sharing an eternity with Him. This involved co-ruler-ship of man with the God who created and ruled over the entire universe. The inheritance was a gift so wonderful and so great our minds cannot wrap themselves around it.
Yet, man refused this incredible gift, in order to eat from the forbidden tree, fully knowing the consequences of such an act, but, perhaps, with a lack of understanding about death. Still, by his own free will, he entered into rebellion against the will of God. A similar thing happened with the fathers of Israel when Jacob’s twin brother, Esau, gave up his covenanting, first-son inheritance, as the first son of twins born to Isaac, son of Abraham, for the simple pleasure of a single meal.
The issue in America, today, is one of rejecting the bread of life in order to eat the same religious food, which Eve ate from the forbidden tree of the knowledge of good and evil. From God’s tree of life proceeds only truth, that spiritual food, which is good for man, but the evil of religion (a belief system based on a foundation of lies), coming from the forbidden tree, is a deadly poison to him.
America was intended to be God’s nation, under His rule and built on the foundation of His Law and His Word of truth. She had rejected the food of the forbidden tree, leading to the Babylonian System, from which she had been separated. She had become the homeland of the Lord’s church of spiritual Israel, called to witness to the truth of the gospels, to all nations. Because of her witness, unlike all the religious world nations, she became the symbol of exceptionalism, as a free, mannerly and moral society, a liberated people from the captivity of religion, to which the other nations were subjected. She stood squarely on a foundation of truth.
The Lord God and no one else or any spiritual food, other than the truth of His Word, set America free. She chose His Law as her blessing and rejected the curse of the religious laws, which ruled over other nations eating from the forbidden tree. Their laws accommodate the evil of Satan who is the Antichrist lurking in religious structures, just waiting to come against the Christ with a sword of the world. He will enter wherever he can find a religious door left open, as he found in Judas, which resulted in his dastardly deed with the religious priesthood of his day, in bed with the ruling Roman government of the Babylonian System.
The religious, Christian church in America has become like Judas, in bed with a religious, apostate priesthood, submitted to government demands for political silence, in return for tax-dollar exemptions. The way has been paved for the final iron empire of Rome to rise up like the fourth pole of the last Winter Olympic Games in Canada, which only arose once the games and the races were over. Is this the year for the final One World Order to begin its rise as the empires of man are about to come to a close at the end of their run? Only those safely riding over the spiritual waters in their own ark-of-the-covenant protection will survive the treacherous waters surrounding the iron empire, headed for the bottom of the sea.
The final empire of all the nations, gathered together into a One World Order, is biblically described as being those nations deceived by Satan, who is referred to as Gog, and the nations as Magog (see Revelation 20:8), both of which will ultimately be destroyed at the end of the thousand-year reign of Jesus after the time of the Great Tribulation. Is the time of tribulation not right at hand, known as the Day of the Lord in biblical terms, when He is going to unleash a series of judgments on man to bring him, hopefully, to the right kind of thinking before it is too late to enter the Sabbath rest? God will only struggle so long with man and then He will allow the devil to cut into the dance of the double camp, whereby he will attempt to separate man from God.
The choice will be yours, as to whom you want to be your dance partner. Do you want to keep the breath of life and the eyes of understanding, which see in truth, or lose that breath forever as you return to the dust and an eternity of darkness, where there is no understanding? You can experience the love, which has come from a God of love and truth, or submit to the lust of the flesh, which, like a flower in bloom, fades and eventually dies and is no more. This life is short but eternity lasts forever. Why be a fool when you have the Word at hand to turn you into a very wise man indeed?
For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account (Hebrews 4:12-13).
I can see the iceberg of frozen seawater looming like a large piece of hail from above. The question now is about just how fast we are traveling toward a collision with the iron empire of the One World Order and whether or not it is too late to turn away. There will only be lifeboats for a small remnant who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ (see Revelation 12:17), when that great beast is seen rising out of the sea.
