Exit Strategy End Times: “Are we like Jonah?”

blowing shofar3

“Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD is one!”

Are we like Jonah?

 

“The magnanimous heart of God, forgiving the repentant heathen (Nineveh) appears in strong contrast to the narrow, bigoted and unforgiving spirit of Jonah.” (NASB Survey on the book of Jonah)

God chose to use that spirit in Jonah but Jonah knew something about God.

“He prayed to the LORD and said, “Please LORD, was not this what I said while I was still in my own country? [That Nineveh would repent.] Therefore in order to forestall this I fled to Tarshish, for I knew that You are a gracious and compassionate God, slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness, and one who relents concerning calamity.” Jonah 4:2 (NASB) [added for clarity]

In Jonah’s heart was judgment. God wanted him to warn of judgment. In Jonah’s heart was the truth. God can be compassionate toward the repentant.

God wants Nineveh to repent as much as He wants Jonah to repent of his “stinkin thinkin” so God gives Jonah a “whale of a good time” and getting his attention Jonah submits and Nineveh repents.

Jonah is asked, “Do you have good reason to be angry?” (About a plant God grew to shade Jonah which died the next day) YES! Was Jonah’s reply.

“Then the LORD said, “You had compassion on the plant for which you did not work and which you did not cause to grow, which came up overnight and perished overnight.
11  “Should I not have compassion on Nineveh, the great city in which there are more than 120,000 persons who do not know the difference between their right and left hand, as well as many animals?”  Jonah 4:10-11 (NASB)

As God does, that is the last word in this short book of 2 pages.

God confronts both many and one, nations and persons.

“For Thou art a gracious and compassionate God, slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness and one who relents concerning calamity.” Jonah 4:10-11 (NASB)

God relents if we repent.

“The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.”  2 Peter 3:9 (NASB)

That which bothered God then, bothers Him now.

“As the nations which the LORD destroyeth before your face, so shall ye perish; because ye would not be obedient unto the voice of the LORD your God.” Deuteronomy 8:20 (KJV)

“He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”  John 3:36 (NASB)

Many are to fall for lack of repentance; for their “stinkin thinkin.” Is God in His mercy warning us today? Like Nineveh, has our time of confrontation come?

Jonah was meant to be God’s mercy to Nineveh. Nineveh was meant to be God’s mercy to Jonah.

Jonah’s silence after God last questions him, may indicate success.

“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5  casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, 6  and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.”  2 Corinthians 10:4-6 (NKJV)

God warns us through the loving knowledge of Christ. We must obey, repenting as we are confronted by His Words.

“If we remain in His grip, how far from His heart can we be!”

In the guardianship of Christ,

Michael

Exit Strategy End Times: “Justification: “They know not what they do.” No more. “

blowing shofar3

“Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD is one! 5  “You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. “These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart.”Deuteronomy 6:4-6 (NASB)

”…He who was delivered over because of our transgressions, and was raised because of our justification.” Romans 4:25 (NASB)

Webster’s New World Dictionary. “Justify: 1. To show to be just, right etc. 2. Theol. To free from blame or guilt. 3. To supply grounds for (justification.) [added for clarity]

“Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.”  Luke 23:34 (KJV)

If the Father’s plan was for Jesus to be the sacrifice for our sins, satisfying the law, establishing a new version of the law, then His death at the hands of mankind was just and right according to the plan.

Yes, we condemn mankind. We feel guilty. Jesus was perfect. His death was unjust (but necessary.) Jesus loved us. He loved us enough to come, live, and die in the understanding that only comes by the human experience. All of our sinful behavior said to Him, we do not know what we are doing. Even though mankind had seen miracles and heard wondrous things, we were still ignorant. Only one thing would change that.

Remember, the disciples did not become who they became until Jesus was resurrected.

“ (He) was raised because of our justification.”

“Because” the word as seen above. Strong’s 1223 “dia” a primary preposition denoting the channel of an act; through (in very wide applications, local, causal or occasional) :- after, always, among, at, to avoid, because of (that), briefly, by, for (cause)…fore, from, in, by occasion of, of, by reason of, for sake, that, thereby, therefore, × though, through (-out), to, wherefore, with (-in). In composition it retains the same general import.
Strong’s Talking Greek & Hebrew Dictionary.

Jesus was raised through our justification. Because He justified our behavior by His own heart and words, “Forgive them Father they know not what they do.” He was then to be raised or resurrected in the perfection of righteousness and truth. WE WILL BE TOO, if we justify the behavior of others knowing they are ignorant of God and His love.

John said this, “Beloved, follow [“imitate or mimic” Strong’s 3401] not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that doeth good is of God: but he that doeth evil hath not seen God.” 3 John 1:11 (KJV)

Is there not grace in the voice of John? Is he not saying why they are behaving the way they are? They have not seen God as compared to you who have and who choose to do good. Are not their behaviors justified because of their lack of relationship with God who changes our behavior by His love?

Can one love and do evil to others also?

Is it good for you to love those who hate you, those who persecute you, to pray for those who deceitfully use you? How about those who would kill you and I?

Jesus came to educate us out of our carnality into kingdom mentalities. He won a great and proven resurrection for doing that which is difficult for us and was for Him.

We can no longer claim ignorance. We have been told. Now we know what we are doing and how wrong and unacceptable it is in light of God and eternity. The un-renewed soul has no ticket to ride. This is why God placed an angel on guard at the entrance of Eden. Man could not be allowed to re-enter the garden in his fallen state, his impaired judgment intact. Nothing has changed.

Please, rise to this world-wide church challenge. Fellow “believers” must be helped to become mature (fervent) followers in order to survive today’s and tomorrow’s chilling and challenging offenses. If not, they continue to build a library of insurmountable offenses.

There is a reason the word says “pursue peace with all men and the sanctification, …” (Hebrews 12:14) If I am to pursue, then it has already happened! We are faced with enough offenses in our past events to forgive or ask forgiveness for, without adding daily to the list. We must protect ourselves and help them learn to do the same.

Hebrews 12:14 goes on to say more. “Pursue peace with all men, and the sanctification… without which no one will see the Lord.”  Verse 15 speaks of the harm if we do not learn.

“See to it that no one comes short of the grace of God; that no root of bitterness springing up causes trouble, and by it many be defiled;…” Hebrews 12:15 (NASB)

We have no excuse any more. Being human is no defense. Christ endured as a human. We have been given everything pertaining to life and Godliness. (2 Pet 1:3) We do not lack a vision. Christ Himself resurrected is our vision. There is a glimmer of things to come in the beauty we are acquiring through His teachings. His love is our Way. We can be filled to all the fullness of God by the love Christ taught us.

“…and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:19-21 (NASB)

Our potential is being realized, “for such a time as this.”

“If we remain in His grip, how far from His heart can we be!”

In the guardianship of Christ,

Michael

End Times: We initiate the return of Christ ebook available!

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

Jesus went to the garden knowing what was to come. Are we willing to see darkness  released as God said it would be and are we willing to initiate the series of events that will afterward bring Jesus back for us?  How we will be protected as we wait? Exit Strategy tells us how.

This book points to a prophecy that Jesus spoke that obviously has been hidden until now. You will agree when you see it. This is NOT about claiming some day or hour! For centuries, we have misinterpreted the verse in question and we were supposed to!  All these years, God used our current understanding  to gather and reconcile uncountable numbers to Himself, but reconciliation is only the beginning; making our eventual salvation possible.

Now Jesus is addressing the end (of this life), redirecting us to the saving love He has shown us. Now in the face of the most challenging of times ahead, times that will ravage the faith of many, God is showing us specifically what will guard our hearts and faith until our death or His return. He is saying we will not die eternally and He is returning!

We were purchased with a price. God continues to invest us to save others, the very worst of them, rewarding us on the other side of the narrow gate. It is our salvation to remember we were once like them and in remembering, we still have the Father’s will and plan to obey. They need us to intercede for them, to be an example for them!

Many important facets to our survival are addressed in this book. Of course I am promoting it. He gave it to me for the church world-wide! God has shown the me many things over the past thirty-three years. They come together now “Holy-graphically.” Please, please set aside any thoughts of profiteering. That is a judgment that will cost you dearly.

This is a large book. Look through the index (blue) to focus on your initial interest but please try to read it all. Chapter 6.6 and the chapters in 8 deal with the cover topic specifically. As Christ was controversial so is this book. He did not always explain fully then but the Spirit is explaining  now. Read until your skepticism is replaced with astonishment. We will all have to ask ourselves, “Am I a disciple of Christ Jesus or a Pharisee stuck in the clutches of tradition?”

The last chapters in 9 are directed to, I call them, the Five Fold League of Servants (FFLOS). God is looking to His “first stringers” to expedite this message, but God will use anyone willing.

Sid Roth’s  “That’s Supernatural” program just had a man speaking to the Remnant of God. Wonderful testimony and inspiration. I believe his message is just one more piece of the puzzle that God has revealed to others. In Exit Strategy a more complete picture and plan is revealed. You will recognize some current beliefs and traditions that are now being set aside by God because His priorities have required it. They were once useful. They were not wrong. Now God’s plan demands our obedience and flexibility. His changes in our understanding will thwart the enemies plan. You will understand.

We the remnant, will be those who embrace the Exit Strategy of Christ as our own! We who initiate the return of Christ as we (by God’s grace) declare our readiness to willingly enter our own Garden of Gethsemane, the times of darkness. Others, less mature will follow our confidence, our convictions. We will rob the Devil of victims and glorify God just like Jesus did! Souls are in danger. Oh what a glorious task God has permitted us to attend to.

Preachers around the world have been expecting a great awakening. This is it. The truth of what lies ahead, although it is distressing, contains our means of escape! It is so simple it must be God in His mercy toward us. Please. I come to you in the Spirit of Daniel 12. The message was hidden intended for these times. It is a call to awaken those who claim to be His, to those willing and able to see the Father’s will in the coming times of darkness, to stand firm in that will!

Loved ones, successfully playing the part we must play in the darkness automatically includes us in the Dawn that follows. We can prepare for and survive the darkness with a hope unshakeable that others will cling to if we know our Exit Strategy!

Guard others as you have been guarded. Love all others as you have been loved!

I often sign off with, “He waits!”  The Word says, “…that He may send Jesus the Christ appointed for you, whom heaven must receive until the period of  restoration of all things about which God spoke …” (Acts 3:21 NKJV, NASB  Strong’s #G605 restoration)

In Exit Strategy , the Holy Spirit is showing us what…needs to be restored.

He (is still) waiting,

Michael
