Exit Strategy End Times: “Apology”

“Exit Strategy” (book seen below) is now blowing shofar3available at most e-book venues.

Dear loved ones,

In reviewing the movie, “Killing Jesus” I referred to Peter being “presented” as the rock the church was to be built on. As you know this is the doctrine of the Catholic Church.

  I have not received any criticism of my comments regarding this but the Lord has put it on my heart to apologize to all who might have found my comments regarding Bill O’Riley or the Peter / Pope doctrine, to be offensive, be they Catholic or not. I apologize sincerely. Please forgive me.
  Every denomination needs leadership. The office of the Pope, for centuries, has led the people of his denomination. They trust in God’s ordination just as others in other denominations do their leaders. Respect is a seed bearing fruit we all desire. We seek it, we expect it, from where we have sown it. Just as God does.
  We all are looking for the keys to the kingdom of heaven. Those without any particular denominational association, if claiming Christ as Lord, are to be following the same leadership we all should be following, without regard to our rank or leadership position or denomination. Christ is our king and His Ways are to be our Ways if we expect entrance to the kingdom of God.
  Unfortunately, differences of interpretation of the Word of God continue to provide rationalized borders between God’s children where none were ever intended to be. To myself and to the Pope, I believe, Christ Jesus must be our focal point. What He did for us and what He taught us to do, if received and implemented from our hearts, will save us. Paul points to this in Romans 5:10. Look it up.
  Because of Christ’s Words to us, I have come to believe that “forgiveness,” both received and granted, will be the one doctrine that will unify the church world-wide. This IS the Spirit of Christ and therefore of our Heavenly Father. This IS the good news of the kingdom, as it prevails in us over every offense and harm; as it covers a multitude of sins, it also covers all of us with the same blanket. Under forgiveness, we are one with Him.
  “Forgiveness” is received in thankfulness and granted in grace by the empowering remembrance of our own original need and our beloved Source. There is an abundance of grace if we will receive it and righteousness comes with it as a gift. (Romans 5:17 NASB, NKJV)
  When bi-directional, forgiveness is grace reigning, through righteousness, to eternal life, through Christ Jesus. (Romans 5:21 NASB, NKJV)
  Let us seek this universal salve, this Balm of Gilead that soothes the sin sick soul. Let us forgive anybody for anything, let us forgive ourselves as well, or will we continue to deny the healing promises of our Lord, bent on harming ourselves?
  We cannot be “in” Christ and not forgive and forget the repentant heart that comes to us or from us to Him. Our peace is found there. Jesus has said, our eternal life depends on it!
  There is a peace that passes all understanding. It will guard our hearts and our souls. My wife Janis knew this. She walked in it from early times in our marriage. She walked in unconditional love toward myself, her son, her daughter, her own father, her ex-husband, her in-laws, her out-laws, toward ANYONE! WHY? It was Christ in her, the Hope of Glory. It was a merciful heart, dedicated to reconciliation. Even in her dying days, she fully knew the precious relief and peace of forgiving all. We all should learn from this beautiful example of Christ.
  Let the church world-wide embrace this tie that binds us together. We will need to be adept at handling forgiveness, this is a priceless Royal commodity. A good king teaches his child the endearing value of grace where debt exists.

The coming times will demand our understanding. Preparing now is paramount.

You are loved, He waits,

Michael

Exit Strategy End Times: “Escape the defilements”

“Exit Strategy” (book seen below) is now blowing shofar3available at most e-book venues.

       2 Peter 2:19b-21 (NASB) 

”…for by what a man is overcome, by this he is enslaved. 20  For if, after they have escaped the defilement’s of the world by the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and are overcome, the last state has become worse for them than the first. 21  For it would be better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn away from the holy commandment handed on to them.

What defiles a man?

Matthew 15:11 (NKJV) (Jesus speaking)
11  Not what goes into the mouth defiles a man; but what comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man.”

Mark 7:20 (NKJV) (Jesus speaking)
20  And He said, “What comes out of a man, that defiles a man.

What might the defilement’s of this world be?

Defilement’s are just what scripture says. That which comes out of other people’s mouths against us, offense, false accusations, hatred, persecutions, and more. Things meant to entrap us, entangle us, causing us “to turn away from the holy commandment handed on to them (us).” (added for effect) (see 2 Peter 2:21 above)

Yes, the Ways of Jesus are commandments, from the same Father that gave us the Law! If Jesus accepts them, we must also. In fact they are the good news of the kingdom! By His commandments, the kingdom will be all we hope it will.

Jesus said in Matthew 15:18-20 (NKJV) 18  “But those things which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and they defile a man. 19  For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies. 20  These are the things which defile a man, but to eat with unwashed hands does not defile a man.”

We cannot let ourselves become entangled by reaction to such things once we have heard the warnings, the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Yes many of us have reacted wrong. What we do next is what matters. Rebellion is tolerated briefly in this life but not at all in heaven.

As Lord (and King) He orders us into submission to His Ways for our own good. Oh we can rebel but we know what happens to the rebellious. We are to be vigilant, walking circumspectly, judiciously guarding our heart from where our mouth is filled. As we do, Peace will fill our souls. Isn’t peace what we are looking for?

As Savior, Jesus achieved cleansing for us of our previous entrapment’s. Pray the interceding prayer for today’s challenges. Today, Jesus will pray the interceding prayer for us.

The coming times will demand our understanding. Preparing now is paramount.

You are loved, He waits,

Michael

Exit Strategy End Times: “Christ was both”

“Exit Strategy” (book seen below) is now blowing shofar3available at most e-book venues.

We know God prefers obedience over sacrifice and yet obedience was not enough in the Lord’s effort for our sake. Why didn’t God stop the process like He did with Abraham when Issac was about to be sacrificed?

Mankind had a need. God had a need. Mankind needed to obey. God needs to see obedience. None of this would happen without proof of a life there after, resurrected eternal life. God had both personified in Jesus, a sacrifice and obedience.

The sacrifice of Jesus ended one season. The obedience of Jesus began another. Our self crucifixion ends one season. Our obedience begins another. One was meant to end. The other is meant to never end!

Hebrews 5:8-9 (KJV)
8  “Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered; 9  And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;..”

2 Thessalonians 1:7-9 (NASB)
7 “and to give relief to you who are afflicted and to us as well when the Lord Jesus will be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels in flaming fire, 8  dealing out retribution to those who do not know God and to those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. 9  These will pay the penalty of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power,”

Genesis 49:10 (NKJV) 

“The scepter shall not depart from Judah, Nor a lawgiver from between his feet, Until Shiloh comes; And to Him shall be the obedience of the people.”

Genesis 49:10 (YLT= Young’s Literal Translation)
10  “The sceptre turneth not aside from Judah, And a lawgiver from between his feet, Till his Seed come; And his is the obedience of peoples.”

Romans 1:5 (NASB)
5 “ through whom we have received grace and apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith among all the Gentiles for His name’s sake,..”

Romans 6:12 (KJV)
12 “ Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.”

Anger, bitterness, hatred, grudges, unforgiveness, judgments, these and other emotions like them cannot be allowed to reign in our mortal bodies. If they go unchecked, we cannot possibly be in Him. Will He try to reach us? Yes, like He is right now! When our reward is so great why would we refuse to reconcile our lives back to what God did freely by something as simple as sincere forgiveness?

Who are we to think we do not have to maintain that which we have been freely given? How can Holiness and righteousness ever be contaminated? Do we have that power? Yes and no. No because they cease to exist by definition when contaminated. Yes, we can and do contaminate ourselves, once made holy and righteous by His death, by failing to obey Him. Returning to contamination can happen even after we have first been reconciled. See Romans 5:10 NKJV, NASB.

“And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;..” Hebrews 5:9

Our eternal perfection is obtained by obedience. So was the Son of Man’s.

( I am ministering in a prison Tuesday, pray the peace of the Holy Spirit would rest upon me that I might impart that which I have, to those divine appointments. )

The coming times will demand our understanding. Preparing now is paramount.

You are loved, He waits,

Michael

Exit Strategy End Times: “It will Rescue those written in the book.”

“Exit Strategy” (book seen below) is now blowing shofar3available at most e-book venues.

Daniel 12:1 (NASB)
1  “… And there will be a time of distress such as never occurred since there was a nation until that time; and at that time your people, everyone who is found written in the book, will be rescued.”

According to Daniel 12 during this (coming) “time of distress” we (those found written in the book) will be rescued. We must conclude there is something we still need, information that leads to an awakening, that leads to our rescue. Based on two things, our name in the book and our awakening to everlasting life, the Word Daniel gives, clearly says we will be rescued! It says more.

Only one in trouble needs rescuing. “I am saved!” Your name may be written in the book but something more is needed. According to Daniel or Jesus or John, Daniel says we must be awakened, John says we must obey to have eternal life in John 3:36 (NKJV, NASB) Jesus says we must “endure” to be saved. Oh yes it is all true. We must awaken, we must obey, we must endure.

The Five Fold League of Servants will truly believe this understanding. It is the Word of God. To them it will be expanded truth. Many of them will be awakened also. This understanding will spread and many in the church population will believe them. Like John the Baptist, this is their hour, the reason for their existence, their chance to “fulfill all righteousness.” This understanding of “enduring love” shall be preached and spread world-wide like Jesus said, “as a witness to all the nations.”

Many are sitting next to us in our churches who will be lost to the Apostasy. How do I know? I know the message, it is understanding that points to the path of actual salvation according to Jesus, John, Paul and Daniel.

There are believers everywhere with anger and bitterness in their hearts. You in the League know this to be true. Oh sure they are reconciled souls to God in Christ but they have not yet obeyed Christ and therefore disobeyed God. They have not gone forward from reconciliation to be obedient to Christ as Lord. See Romans 5:10, John 3:36 (NKJV, NASB) Obedience to the Way, as we see in the Lord’s life, has not yet “saved” them as Paul says it does in Romans 5:10. It still can!

This is very confrontational understanding. In your love for the flock remember, “Better is open rebuke than love that is concealed.” Proverbs 27:5 (NASB) In these treacherous times, DO NOT shirk your duty and calling. Their blood will be on your hands. Forget the church budget. Rescue those entrusted to you.

The message of enduring love from Matthew 24:13-14, has not been preached or presented as the good news referred to by Jesus. For centuries church authorities have not seen this critical message with its prophetic importance. Enduring love IS the good news of the kingdom. It describes the kingdom! We have preached “Jesus is Lord” to the nations thinking one day the last person to be saved will get saved and Jesus will return. Asking Jesus to be Lord is only the beginning. Making Him Lord means doing as the king says. His commands are the law in His kingdom.

Of course Jesus needs to be Lord. In Matthew 24 Jesus is imploring us to be saved by our embracing His enduring love.

Also, Matthew 24:13-14 in context Jesus is speaking of the end of our journey and how to finish and actually be saved finally and forever. He is not telling us how to meet Him for the first time. This is a serious correction. This changes our goal, our assignment, the topic Jesus wants addressed, as a witness to all nations.

Great distress will be in the hearts of believers as “enduring love” confronts our commitment to obedience and love. HOWEVER, according to Daniel it “will rescue those written in the book.” (Daniel 12: 1) as it also says, many will be “awakened to everlasting life and some to disgrace and everlasting contempt.” This is an awakening from our worldly entanglements and mentalities. That includes most of us. Revered bible commentator Matthew Henry agrees.

In their awakening and obedience, “many will be purged, purified and refined.” (Daniel 12:10 NASB) Some will chose not to be purged, purified and refined to their disgrace. This purging and purification is by the forgiveness and intercession granted by us to others. By our choice, through the power of the Holy Spirit, we will grasp this absolute requirement and empty ourselves like Jesus did on the cross with the same understanding in our hearts. “They know not what they do.”

Our souls are being awakened to a true Christ-likeness.  He emptied Himself to leave! He purposely emptied Himself of what we might call “righteous anger”and  justified bitterness. By forgiving anyone for anything, just as Jesus did, OUR souls are being cleansed, refined to purity, in preparation for eternity.

The solutions He taught, if we receive them, will manifest the intended results of Christ’s efforts. There will be the restoration of all things as prophesied. (Acts 3:21 NASB) Also, “Those who have insight will shine brightly, those who lead the many to righteousness, like the stars, for ever and ever.” (Daniel 12: 3 NAS) The awakening we experience will be a rescue for us and those we lead to righteousness; a journey to true Christ-likeness.

His messages, which actually preserve our eternal life, are included in the “restoration of all things.” (Acts 3:21 NASB) As it says, Christ will not come back before this happens. The restoration of Christ’s teachings and examples as He meant them, will occur as they are understood and taught by the League without compromise. Life will come to us all in our awakening to them.

Am I saying there are things we have not seen or understood? Yes, things man is yet to glean from God’s Word. Paul said, “For I neither received it from man, nor was I taught it, but I received it through a revelation of Jesus Christ. “ Galatians 1:12 (NASB) Can you believe the Holy Spirit is still revealing important things in these apparently important times? God used Paul. God will use you! I can testify, this understanding was not my own. The Holy Spirit by God will has enlightened me and I you. Paul and the others penned the Words before any of us.

Their is an understanding we have lacked. Along with the distressing comes the freeing truth behind Christ’s efforts. It will be understood for its eternal significance. His Words are being clarified, re-discovered, returning to the preeminence they were meant to; becoming eternal life to us like never before, to His glory.

The grasp and dissemination of this expanded truth, by the Five Fold League of Servants world-wide, will bring many to righteousness. What truth we have had until now is to be appreciated but it will become a step stool for His expanded and timely understanding.

God is calling out our change of course to enter the harbor of eternity. We will put our eternal life in jeopardy if we reject the instructions of Jesus as LORD. His declaration in Matthew 24, “… he that endures to the end will be saved.” holds a qualifier for eternal life that is crystal clear.

As The League leaps into action, at this same time, the hour of darkness will begin increasing to its God spoken fullness. God knows it will have been set in motion by the preaching of “this” enduring love. Like Jesus said to John the Baptist, “Let us fulfill all righteousness” (let us fulfill all prophecy) We too will be doing the same.

To not defend ourselves from persecution will by many “believers” be rejected outright. Even though Christ was our example. God knows darkness precedes or initiates the return of Christ, and we initiate the darkness! God knew Jesus entering the Garden of Gethsemane would initiate a season of darkness, the return to heaven of His beloved Son, and the eventual return to heaven of His new loving family.

If we lack a full grounding in Christ, especially if we are under duress, will cause us to renounce our faith in Him; fulfilling the prophecy of The Apostasy. On the other hand if we embrace with understanding the preparation He is offering us, we can…lovingly endure. The question is this. Will our love grow cold or will we have become “rooted and grounded in love” God’s kind of love, the enduring love we have all come to know from Him, in our lives?

The coming times will demand our understanding. Preparing now is paramount.

You are loved, He waits,

Michael
