PROPHETS & KINGS: Audio & Pull Quotes- Chapter 31

Hope for the Heathen


All men are of one family by creation, and all are one through redemption. Christ came to demolish every wall of partition, to throw open every compartment of the temple courts, that every soul may have free access to God. His love is so broad, so deep, so full, that it penetrates everywhere.
Throughout his ministry Isaiah bore a plain testimony concerning God's purpose for the heathen.
The apostle to the Gentiles, in his letter to the believers in Rome, calls attention to this characteristic of Isaiah's teaching. Isaiah is very bold, Paul declares, and saith, I was found of them that sought Me not; I was made manifest unto them that asked not after Me.
Romans 10:20

Lilies & Bether

My Beloved is mine, and I am His:
He feedeth among the lilies.
Until the day break, and the shadows flee away,
 turn, my Beloved,
and be Thou like a roe or a young hart upon the mountains of Bether.
Song of Solomon 2:16, 17

"SURELY if there be a happy verse in the Bible it is this—"My Beloved is mine, and I am His."
So peaceful, so full of assurance, ,,, that it might well have been written by the same hand which penned the twenty-third Psalm.

There is a word, too, about the "mountains of Bether," or, "the mountains of division," and to our love, anything like division is bitterness.

"Where is He?" asks the soul. And the answer comes, "He feedeth among the lilies."

Oh, for an evening glimpse of Him! Oh, to sup with Him to-night!"
Charles Spurgeon

How FAITH & WORKS go Together

IF you are CONNECTED to the VINE you will bear the fruit...
I am the vine, ye are the branches:
He that abideth in me,
and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit:
for without me ye can do nothing.
John 15:5
Abraham Case Study
But wilt thou know,
O vain man,
that faith without works is dead?
Was not Abraham our father justified by works,
when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?
Seest thou how faith wrought with his works,
and by works was faith made perfect?
Ye see then how that by works a man is justified,
and not by faith only.
James 2:20-24

Gethsemane Lesson for EndTime

Before they entered Gethsemane, nearing the END of Christ's mission to earth, what did they do?
(Is there an EndTime application for us today?)
And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.
And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;
Matthew 26:26,27
--Have you feasted on His Bread (Word) and accepted His Blood Sacrifice (at the Cross)?

He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself.
John 13:4
--Have you humbled yourself & laid aside your filthy garments?

And he was withdrawn from them about a stone's cast, and kneeled down, and prayed,...
Luke 22:41
--Have you really PRAYED?

And when they had sung an hymn,
they went out into the mount of Olives.
Matthew 26:30

--Are we asleep?
And when he rose up from prayer,
 and was come to his disciples,
he found them sleeping..
Luke 22:45

Creation Moment 1/16/2018 - Darwin's approach

 "In an era when natural philosophers were consciously coming to
rely on idioms of prediction, experiment, demonstration, and discovery, when accredited truths of nature were established by seeing and believing, Darwin’s approach was doubly unusual. He was inviting people to believe in a world run by irregular, unpredictable contingencies, as well as asking them to accept his solution for the simple reason that it seemed to work."
 Janet Browne, Charles Darwin: The Power of Place, p. 56
Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind.
Matthew 15:14

PROPHETS & KINGS: Audio & Pull Quotes- Chapter 30

Deliverance From Assyria


The God of the Hebrews had prevailed over the proud Assyrian. ....The pride of Assyria and its fall are to serve as an object lesson to the end of time. Of the nations of earth today who in arrogance and pride array themselves against Him, God inquires, To whom art thou thus like in glory and in greatness among the trees of Eden? yet shalt thou be brought down with the trees of Eden unto the nether parts of the earth.  Ezekiel 31:18


And it came to pass, when king Jeroboam heard the saying of the man of God,
which had cried against the altar in Bethel,
 that he put forth his hand from the altar, saying, Lay hold on him.
1 Kings 13:4

WHY does Lucifer want you?

 Be sober, be vigilant;
because your adversary the devil,
as a roaring lion, walketh about,
seeking whom he may devour:
1 Peter 5:8
Q: WHY does Lucifer want you?
A: ....for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye.
Zechariah 2:8


Ye are clean, but not all. For He knew who should betray Him;
therefore said He, ye are not all clean.
John 13:10,11

"Our Lord did not make a terrible mistake in selecting Judas to be one of the twelve disciples. It was neither an accident nor a blunder. There were very definite reasons for Judas being in this select group; even though he was unclean (unsaved) and referred to as “the son of perdition” (John 17:12).
 At the Passover before His death, Jesus made this startling statement concerning Judas: “The Son of man indeed goeth, as it is written of Him: but woe to that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! good were it for that man if he had never been born” (Mark 14:21).

So, why Judas? The betrayal of Judas gave dramatic evidence to the fact of the deity of Christ. Jesus said, “Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I am He” (John 13:19).  He” is not in the actual Greek text, and thus can be translated simply, “I am.” “I AM” is the Old Testament name, Jehovah. He predicted the betrayal and only God can do that.

Judas’ betrayal was a fulfillment of Scripture. In John 13:18, Jesus quotes Psalm 41:9: “He that eateth bread with me hath lifted up his heel against me.” As Ahithophel turned against David and eventually hanged himself, even so, Judas would turn against Christ and die in the same manner.

Judas would give vital testimony to the fact of Christ’s innocence.When he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood” (Matthew 27:3,4). He gave true witness as to Christ’s character and person. Judas went out into a night that never ended (John 13:30), because he never truly received Christ into his life." NPS

PROPHETS & KINGS: Audio & Pull Quotes- Chapter 29

The Ambassadors From Babylon


The story of Hezekiah's failure to prove true to his trust at the time of the visit of the ambassadors is fraught with an important lesson for all. Far more than we do, we need to speak of the *precious chapters in our experience, of the *mercy and loving-kindness of God, of the *matchless depths of the Savior's love.
Those with whom we associate day by day need our help, our guidance. They may be in such a condition of mind that a word spoken in season will be as a nail in a sure place. Tomorrow some of these souls may be where we can never reach them again. We cannot gather up the thoughts we have planted in human minds. If they have been evil, we may have set in motion a train of circumstances, a tide of evil, which we are powerless to stay.
The visit of the ambassadors to Hezekiah was a test of his gratitude and devotion. The record says, Howbeit in the business of the ambassadors of the princes of Babylon, who sent unto him to inquire of the wonder that was done in the land, God left him, to try him, that He might know all that was in his heart. 2 Chronicles 32:31. Had Hezekiah improved the opportunity given him to bear witness to the power, the goodness, the compassion, of the God of Israel, the report of the ambassadors would have been as light piercing darkness. But he magnified himself above the Lord of hosts.

The Desire to be Rich

But those who desire to be rich

*fall into temptation
*and a snare
and into many
*foolish and
*harmful lusts,
which drown men in ruin and destruction.
1 Timothy 6:9


And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven,....Saying with a loud voice,
*Fear God, and give glory to him;
*for the hour of his judgment is come:
(Judgment has begun)
*and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.
(harkening back to the Sabbath Commandment-see Ex.20:8-11)
Revelation 14:6,7

And there followed another angel, saying,
*Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city,
(Fall of Spiritual Babylon-Papal Rome & apostate Protestantism)
*because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.
(False Doctrines via Church & State union)
Revelation 14:8

And the third angel followed them, saying with a
loud voice,
If any man worship the beast and his image,
*and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
(Head=Believe it/Hand=go along because it's the law, in order to buy &sell see Rev.13;17)
--The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation;....
Revelation 14:9.10

Papal Notes - a 'lil 'ole Fashioned Idolatry

"The Pontiff will leave on January 15, for his first Apostolic Journey of the New Year, which will take him first to Peru (January 15-18) and then to Chile (January 18-22). The pilgrims, residents in France for reasons of work, brought a gift to the Holy Father: the image of the Virgen de la Puerta [Virgin of the Door] very dear to the Peruvian people." Zenit

The ONLY "door" one needs ----
Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.
John 10:7

BTW, ".....worship and faith of the people of Otuzco to "Virgin of La Puerta" began in the
seventeenth century when it was feared a piracy attack to the city of Trujillo, so the nearby villages could be also attacked by pirates in a possible incursion of these to the coastal city. In Otuzco existed a chapel dedicated to Immaculate Conception, Patroness of Otuzco in that time. When the news became known that the northern cities Guayaquil and Zaña had been attacked by pirates and believing that Trujillo would be the next city to be attacked, from Trujillo were sent messages to the nearby villages so they could take their preventive measures. Residents of Otuzco placed an image of the Virgin of the Conception in the entrance of the village as a symbol of prayer and protection of piracy attacks. Miraculously Trujillo was not attacked by pirates dangerous, and since then born worship and faith to Virgin of La Puerta which spans the north of Peru." wikipedia

SDA News - Lee Embarrasses Adventism

....go, humble thyself, and make sure thy friend.
Proverbs 6:3
"This woman has been paraded around Adventist and NAD circles for years.  She was trotted out at the San Antonio General Conference and shown to the delegates as a high-ranking American politician and an Adventist.  She was invited to speak at Oakwood University in February, 2016. The communications directors featured her at one of their annual conventions several years ago, and she has been asked to speak at numerous upper level NAD gatherings. 

But she gives no evidence of having had a conversion experience, or of living a life of charity and humility.  Is there any evidence that her Adventist religion has refined and ennobled her character, or even filed down the sharpest edges of her temper?
She seems to be a first-rate narcissist.

Jean-Marie Simon was about to board a flight from Houston to Washington D.C., the final leg of her journey home from Guatamala, when the gate attendant told her that her ticket was not in the system.  She was told the first-class seat she had purchased, 1A, had been taken by another passenger. ...As she boarded the plane, Simon did not recognize the middle aged black woman sitting in seat 1A.  Only when she got to her seat in economy and told her story (with exhibits) to the man in the seat beside her did she learn the woman’s identity: Texas Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee.

The flight was delayed for an hour due to mechanical issues, and during that delay Simon went forward to the first class compartment and snapped a picture of Jackson Lee, tweeting it out with the caption:  “Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) in seat 1A, the one I paid for dearly, and the one United gave to her without my consent or knowledge.  Fellow congressman on same flight said she does it repeatedly."

Daily Mail reporter David Martosko tweeted his experience with Jackson Lee, saying, “I saw Sheila Jackson-Lee on a domestic flight two years ago. While I was walking back to coach, she was throwing a hissy fit in First Class over why the steward had to gate-check her carry-on. (It was too big to fit in the overhead.) She threw a tantrum worthy of a 3-year-old.”

Back in the late 1990s, the Houston Press reported that Jackson Lee would regularly demand first class upgrades and throw temper tantrums when she did not get special treatment.  On one occasion, when Jackson Lee boarded a flight at Reagan National Airport and found that the menu did not include a seafood special she had wanted, she flew into a rage: "Don't you know who I am? I'm Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee. Where is my seafood meal? I know it was ordered!"  According to Rebecca Cox, a Continental Airlines vice president for governmental affairs, Jackson Lee "screamed at the top of her lungs at least a minute.  She embarrassed the flight attendants and the passengers in first class. And she embarrassed herself."

Whenever she is called out for her rude behavior, Jackson Lee plays the race card.  According to a 2011 Daily Caller report, she once demanded that her driver park in an area in front of the Treasury Building that the Secret Service had placed off limits.  When the Secret Service stopped Jackson Lee’s vehicle, she claimed it was because the “white” officers (who were actually Hispanic) were racist.

Unsurprisingly, Jackson Lee now claims that Jean-Marie Simon is a racist." Fulcrum7

Creation Moment 1/14/2018 - Our Spiritual DNA

Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace;
to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed;
not to that only which is of the law,
but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham;
who is the father of us all.
Romans 4:16

"Paul very skillfully explains the means by which the Gentile and Jew become justified by the faith of Abraham. In this chapter, he explains, point by point, the logic that leads to the conclusion that Abraham is the spiritual father of both the Jew and Gentile, because the heirship had nothing to do with physical seed (children) or the practice of circumcision. Instead, “Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness” (v.3), without works (v.4), before the rite of
circumcision was instituted (v.11).  Here, then, is a remarkable revelation of an inheritance pattern unknown to Mendelian genetics. Mendel, as an Austrian monk, worked out the basic principles by which natural seeds cause inheritance of traits. The offspring of the plant crosses that he made depended upon the genetic traits inherited from the parents, whereas the offspring of God’s promise to Abraham are characterized by the trait of belief, or faith. This trait leads to the forgiveness of iniquities and the covering of sins in a person’s life (v.7).  What in the world is this all about?
--To the humanist, there is no inheritance in one’s life apart from the natural transmission of genes.
--With the child of God, there is more.
 One’s physical life and spiritual life can be transformed by the willing acceptance of God’s promises (Genesis 15:6; 17:4). Sin in a person’s life is a practice that has been permitted to emit from a person’s heart (mind) (Romans 1:28; 8:7; Ephesians 4:17; Jeremiah 4:14).
Acceptance of Jesus' shed blood covers our sins and makes us heirs of our “fatherAbraham."
