"SOME RANDOM THOUGHTS TO PONDER"
I was thinking about how the bible says a day with the Lord is as a thousand years and a thousand years was like a day. I've heard that shared as it's all the same to him because he lives in the NOW. Nevertheless it seemed like an interesting math problem.
24 hours = 1000 years ... 12 hours = 500 years ... 6 hours = 250 years ... 3hours = 125 years ... 1 hour = 41.666 years
Interesting musing! 41.666 rounded up would be 42 years ... Just consider this a bit.
God's chosen generation is the 42nd generation the one of Jesus Christ. Psalm 22:30 says a seed shall serve him: it shall be accounted to the Lord for a Generation.
Matthew Ch.1 vs. 17 So all the generations from Abraham to David are 14 generations and from David unto the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are 14 generations. 14 + 14 + 14 = 42 Generations
You know the bible says with Violence Babylon is Thrown Down and it also says The Kingdom Of Heaven
(THAT'S US) suffereth violence -- (VIOLENCE FROM THE DESTRUCTIVE TEACHINGS OF BABYLON) and the
Violent take it By Force -- We take back our kingdom by force! How do we do that? We do that by the CASTING DOWN THE IMAGINATIONS THAT BABYLONS FALSE DOCTRINES CAPTURED OUR MINDS WITH.
Babylon has a mixed message of Law and Grace. That is what is found in the modern church denominations as well as in many charismatic and non-denominations. The people are kept in a confusion. God is unconditional love--that is until--they teach otherwise. You know he might withold a blessing from you if you don't give in all their special offerings or if you don't fast as often as the leader. You might be under a curse if you don't tithe or make that $1000 vow. That's right just screw up and you might go to Hell and roast for eternity. Babylon has so many denominations it's hard to keep all her do's and don'ts so just find a place where you can feel comfortable and self-righteous and settle in. They'll do all the work for you and tell you what to believe so you won't need to seek God or rely on the Holy Ghost to teach you. Oh! Babylon will mention that about the Holy Ghost teaching you but they will call you a heretic if he shows you anything that crosses their closely held "Holier Than God's" beliefs. Their doctrines use the fear of "HELL" to catch souls and keep them! It's such a deep rooted fear church folks are afraid to believe in the Great Grace and Mercy of God for fear of being heretics. Again it's that fear that "If I am a heretic I might lose my salvation". So they remain in the system -- Caught by Fear -- Kept by Fear.
They don't realize that the image of God sown in their minds is an abomination to God. That he would create a place called HELL to torture for ever and ever any of the children he has created regardless of their performance in one limited fleshly lifetime is a doctrine of devils. It makes the GOD OF LOVE into a BEAST. If you worry about "The Mark of the Beast" wise up! The more you listen to that type of teaching that Beastly Mark is going into your forehead (mind)--wake up! Come Out of Her My People Is God's Message To You
In the bible story where the owner of a vineyard goes out and hires laborers and agrees to pay them a penny and they all get hired at different times but all get the same pay a penny. There is one group hired last and they work but ONE HOUR and they also get paid first and get a PENNY. Remember before they were hired the owner of the vineyard asked why they were standing idle. They replied BECAUSE NO MAN HATH HIRED US. That's important-they were not hired by man-they were not hirelings. They didn't fit in but they were CHOSEN to work for ONE HOUR. That's important too!!! That HOUR is a figurative period of time not 60 minutes.
Those workers hired first grumbled and complained that the owner of the vineyard was unfair thinking they worked longer and should have been paid more. They complained that they bore the BURDEN and HEAT of the day. Yes! They Did! They labored with a mixed message of Law and Grace and presented an untrue image of God. Despite their good works they actually slandered the GOD OF LOVE. Those preachers-teachers-evangelists may have meant well teaching the things they had passed on to them by tradition but just as the Pharisee's of the past their traditional understanding is in error.
Revelation Ch.14 vs.8 Babylon is fallen because she made all nations to drink of the wine of her fornication.
Her wine -or- message was her mixed message of Law and Grace. Her fornication was trying to stay married to the law (legalisms) while being married to Christ. She is an adulteress. Her house leads to death and her job will be to bury you when you die and say nice things about you when you die. They should be preaching The Kingdom Of God and the revelation of "Christ In You" the perfect man In Christ. That is God's View of You. You become what you behold so if you are always kept looking at your flesh you will remain locked up in many bondage's. You will experience real freedom only as you behold yourself "IN CHRIST".
Revelation Ch.18 vs.10 That Great City for in ONE HOUR thy judgement is come.
Revelation Ch. 18 vs. 21 And a Mighty Angel took up a stone like a great millstone and cast it into the sea saying - With Great Violence shall that Great City Babylon be thrown down and shall be found no more.
THIS WILL TAKE PLACE FIRST--IN YOU--AS YOU ACCEPT THE TRUE MESSAGE OF GRACE--AND BELIEVE THAT GOD IS PURE LOVE-NOT- A BEASTLY GOD WHO WOULD TORTURE PEOPLE IN A FIRERY HELL FOR EVER AND EVER NO MATTER HOW BADLY THEY TRANSGRESSED AGAINST HIM. EVENTUALLY THIS MESSAGE WILL GO MAINSTREAM AND THEN THE GREAT END TIME REVIVAL MEN SEEK WILL COME TO PASS. BUT IT WON'T COME FROM PREACHING A MIXED MESSAGE OF LAW AND GRACE.
If you listen to your heart and let the Holy Ghost to destroy Babylon's image in you--you will be one of "His Workers" sharing the "Real Good News" that will bring in the Greatest Harvest of Souls ever seen!
