Marriage Feast of The Lamb

“Let us be glad and rejoice and give glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and His wife has prepared herself. And it is granted to her that she should clothe herself with fine linen, glittering and white, for the fine linen are the justifications of saints. And he said to me: Write: Blessed are they that are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he said to me: These words of God are true” (Apoc 19:7-9).

‘…the marriage of the Lamb is come, and His wife has prepared herself.’ Notice the instruction: ‘His wife has prepared herself…’ There are preparations which we must make. As we prepare for the Marriage Feast of The Lamb, a number of preparations must first take place here on earth.

The first is our understanding of the Mystical, Spiritual and Fundamental word of God in relation to Creator, creation and created: “In the beginning God created heaven, and earth…and the spirit of God moved over the waters” (Gn 1:1,2). It is in this sense that we are aware of the Battle of the Ages as all of creation is taken back from the Devil and restored to God Almighty.

The second is that the Spiritual is further to be understood in our individual personal sense of spirit, soul and body: “Behold My servant whom I have chosen, My beloved in whom My soul has been well pleased. I will put My spirit upon him, and he shall show judgment to the Gentiles” (Mt 12:18). It is in this sense that we are aware of our own individual battle against the forces of evil, and drive the Devil and his minions out of our beings, using the gifts of Jesus Christ in His Seven Sacraments: “I will give to thee the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven (Mt 16:19).

The third is that once we have conquered the second part, then we are ready to invite the armies that are in Heaven to come to earth and participate in the final Great Tribulation in defeating Satan: “But every one in his own order: the firstfruits, Christ: then they that are of Christ, who have believed in His coming. Afterwards the end: when He shall have delivered up the Kingdom to God and the Father: when He shall have brought to nought all principality and power and virtue. For He must reign, until He has put all His enemies under his feet. And the enemy, death, shall be destroyed last: For he has put all things under His feet. And whereas He says: All things are put under Him; undoubtedly, He is excepted, who put all things under Him. And when all things shall be subdued unto Him, then the Son also Himself shall be subject unto Him that put all things under Him, that God may be all in all” (1Co 15:23-28).

The fourth is that before the fulness of the armies that are in Heaven can arrive on earth, there will be two advance parties arriving, the first is a preliminary advance party of two people who will assist us here on earth to make ready for the second group which is the full advance party (Jos 2:1-23).

The fifth is that the preliminary advance party will assist us in setting up all the necessary infrastructure for the main advance party. This setting up will include among other things housing, communications and distribution of the written word: “Hear my words and counsels, and God shall be with thee. Be thou to the people in those things that pertain to God, to bring their words to Him, and to show the people the ceremonies, and the manner of worshiping; and the way wherein they ought to walk, and the work that they ought to do. And provide out of all the people able men, such as fear God, in whom there is truth, and that hate avarice, and appoint of them rulers of thousands, and of hundreds, and of fifties, and of tens, who may judge the people at all times: and when any great matter soever shall fall out, let them refer it to thee, and let them judge the lesser matters only: that so it may be lighter for thee, the burden being shared out unto others. If thou dost this, thou shalt fulfil the commandment of God, and shall be able to bear His precepts: and all this people shall return to their places with peace” (Ex 18:19-23).

The sixth part is the arrival of the entire advance party who will prepare the world including the cosmos and under the sea and earth for the great ‘clean up’ and evangelization: “And every creature which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard all saying: To Him that sits on the Throne and to the Lamb, benediction and honour and glory and power, for ever and ever” (Apoc 5:13).

It is in this time frame that the Ark of the Covenant will be recovered and shown to all the world as Scripture says: “…until the times of the restitution of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of His holy prophets, from the beginning of the world” (Ac 3:21). This showing of the Ark is not a ‘photo op,’ no, it is the demonstration of the power and might and fulness of the authority of God given to His people of faith. It is the transfer of the sceptre from those who violated His Word with the worldly political correctness of man-made ecumenism. It is the time of making ‘all things new’ (Apoc 21:5). In the prophet Jeremiah it is recorded: “Return, O ye revolting children, saith the Lord, for I am your I Husband, and I will take you, one of a city, and two of a kindred, and will bring you into Sion, and I will give you pastors according to My own heart, and they shall feed you with knowledge and doctrine” (Jr 3:14,15). I can assure you that this ‘knowledge and doctrine’ is not found in the ecumenism of the 1960’s which is rampant today.

“Before the Ark of Testimony shall be opened before the end of the age, the Living Testimony, herein contained, shall be unsealed. The Presence of the Divine Ark will constitute the life of this Virgin Church. Wherever the Body is, there must be, of necessity, the Divine Ark. Along with the unsealing of the Living Testimony, with the Ark of God, must begin the promulgation of the everlasting gospel of the Kingdom. The proclamation of this Testimony will be as a sounding of a trumpet to alarm the nations and peoples of professed Christendom.” (1619 Prophecy para 3).

The arrival of the armies of Heaven on earth for the final great evangelization shows the completeness of the Divine Mercy of God. This time of mercy is given to all those who will receive His Grace. This is that time of mercy as recorded by Jeremiah the prophet: “When Jeremias came thither (Mount Nebo) he found a hollow cave and he carried in thither the tabernacle, and the ark, and the altar of incense, and so stopped the door. Then some of them that followed him, came up to mark the place, but they could not find it. And when Jeremias perceived it, he blamed them, saying: The place shall be unknown, till God gather together the congregation of the people, and receive them to mercy” (2M 2:5-7). The time of mercy, the time of the Great Evangelization, the time of the fullness of the Goodness of God.

The details of this conversion drive will be complete in every aspect with nothing missing. Every person in every nation, tribe and dialect will receive individual ‘visitors’ instructing them on the truths of Christ Jesus. No one will be overlooked and all will have every opportunity to convert to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ: “But at that time shall Michael rise up, the great prince, who stands for the children of thy people: and a time shall come, such as never was from the time that nations began, even until that time. And at that time shall thy people be saved, every one that shall be found written in the book. And many of those that sleep in the dust of the earth, shall awake, some unto life everlasting, and others unto reproach, to see it always. But they that are learned, shall shine as the brightness of the firmament, and they that instruct many to justice, as stars for all eternity” (Dn 12:1-3).

Finally, the entire armies that are in Heaven will arrive on earth for the final great push. The prayer of Jesus is fulfilled: “Father…Thy Kingdom come…on earth as it is in Heaven” (Mt 6:10). This is such an extraordinary event that the Antichrist curses those in Heaven on earth: “And he opened his mouth unto blasphemies against God, to blaspheme His Name and His Tabernacle and them that dwell in Heaven” (Apoc 13:6). The Devil and his demons quake with horror and fear as they see the end of their wickedness and total destruction by God’s invincible army, led by His faithful The Word of God, who: “was clothed with a garment sprinkled with blood, and his name is called: THE WORD OF GOD. And the armies that are in heaven followed him on white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth proceeds a sharp two-edged sword, that with it he may strike the nations. And he shall rule them with a rod of iron, and he treads the winepress of the fierceness of the wrath of God the Almighty. And he has on his garment and on his thigh written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS(Apoc 19:13-16). The devil and his minions know that now the open gates of Hell swallow them up in everlasting flames (Apoc 20:3).

In addition to the spiritual war will there be a physical war as well? Very definitely yes! Listen to what Jesus said to Pilate: “My Kingdom is not of this world. If My Kingdom were of this world, My servants would certainly strive that I should not be delivered to the Jews, but now My Kingdom is not from hence” (Jn 18:36). When He said ‘..but now My Kingdom is not from hence’ He indicates that there will be a time when His Kingdom will be here on earth. Notice what He said to Peter: “Put up again your sword into its place for all that take the sword shall perish with the sword. Think you that I cannot ask My Father, and He will give Me presently more than twelve legions of angels?” (Mt 26:52,53). Again see the prophecy of the arrival of the Heavenly armies, ‘He will give Me presently more than twelve legions of angels.’ This is not an idle statement, but a definite indication of what is in store for the Battle of the Ages. In terms of the Roman army a legion consisted of a division of somewhere between 3,000 and 6,000 men. But Jesus was not speaking of an earthly (Roman) army, but of a Heavenly army from His Father, where a legion consisted of a vast number of angels.

After the conclusion of the Final Battle, everything will be at peace, for the New Garden of Eden, that is the New Jerusalem will be open and everything will be as God intended from the very beginning. Everything will be God centered, and earthly objects will no more have place in the Heavenly Jerusalem: “When you shall be multiplied, and increase in the land in those days, saith the Lord, they shall say no more: ‘The Ark of the Covenant of the Lord,’ neither shall it come upon the heart, neither shall they remember it, neither shall it be visited, neither shall that be done any more” (Jr 3:16). How insignificant that will be, ‘neither shall it be visited.’

There follows the Great Judgement Day, the Final Judgement: “And when the Son of man shall come in His majesty, and all the angels with Him, then shall He sit upon the seat of His majesty. And all nations shall be gathered together before Him, and He shall separate them one from another, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats, and He shall set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on His left. Then shall the King say to them that shall be on His right hand: Come, ye blessed of My Father, possess you the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world…Then He shall say to them also that shall be on His left hand: Depart from Me, you cursed, into everlasting fire, which was prepared for the devil and his angels. And these shall go into everlasting punishment, but the just, into Life Everlasting” (Mt 25:31-34,41-46).

Hell and evil will be consumed in fire and will be remembered no more. “And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord of hosts, that I will destroy the names of idols out of the earth, and they shall be remembered no more, and I will take away the false prophets, and the unclean spirit out of the earth” (Zc 13:2).

When these final events are over, then we, the victorious saints, will sit down to the Marriage Feast of the Lamb, with Christ Jesus our Host: “Blessed are those servants whom the Lord, when He comes, shall find watching. Amen I say to you that He will gird Himself and make them sit down to meat and passing will minister unto them” (Lk 12:37). Amen!

 

Call no man father

This article is in response to someone whom I will call (AYZ) who wrote to me stating that I should call no one ‘father’ quoting: “First, I don’t know if you have read Mathew 23:9- And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.” He went on to ridicule ‘catholic’ and in particular ‘Roman Catholic.’ Here then is a summary of my reply to him: There are a number of religions in ‘Christianity’ who call themselves ‘Catholic’ in addition to the Roman Catholic, like the Orthodox, and Anglican, and Episcopalian, and also two surprises – the Coptic (which means Egypt), and Lutheran. The word catholic means ‘universal,’ and such term came from the Gospel of Saint Mark: Jesus said to the disciples: “Go ye into the whole world, and preach the gospel to every creature” (Mk 16:15). In Saint Matthew it is recorded: “Going therefore, teach ye all nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you, and behold I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world”(Mt 28:19). The term Greek Catholic Orthodox, Roman Catholic, came after the various splinter groups were set up in ‘Christianity.’ It is more proper to say ‘Catholic,’ (as in the original Christianity) rather than ‘catholic’ when describing or claiming a religion. A true Catholic is a devout practitioner of the Ten Commandments and a follower of the Gospels, and the Letters of the New Testament which outline the Seven Sacraments of the Church to which I am obedient. I believe that the Second Vatican Council changed the Roman church to become as low as a Protestant church. I see very little difference between the Roman, Lutheran, Baptist, or all the 1,000 different ‘christian’ churches today. Well did Isaiah lament: “All we like sheep have gone astray, every one has turned aside into his own way…” (Is 53:6). The Vatican II Council hijacked the structure, but could not hijack the faith handed down to me by my father and his fathers. This was ‘the faith of our fathers’ to which I will be true until death. This then brings me to the next part of his letter: “We must follow Christ, who is the Word of God made flesh, and in turn follow what the Holy Bible says and call on our Father God YHWH to interpret it for us if we do not understand. All in the name of Jesus Christ. (John 16:23)”. “And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: I am the Lord that appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, by the Name of God Almighty, and My Name ADONAI I did not show them” (Ex 6:2,3). The name Adonai, which is in the Hebrew text, is that most proper name of God, which signifies His Eternal, Self-existent Being: ‘I AM WHO AM. HE WHO IS.’ (Ex 3:14), which in our every day language means : Independent, Infinite, without beginning, end, or change; and the Source of all other beings. Out of reverence the Jews never pronounce this Name; but, instead of It, whenever it occurs in the Bible, they read Adonai, which signifies the Lord; and, therefore, they put the points or vowels, which belong to the name Adonai, to the four letters of that other ineffable name ‘YHWH,’ which is Jod, He, Vau, He. Hence some moderns have framed the name Jehovah, or Yahweh, unknown to all the ancients, whether Jews or Christians; for the true pronunciation of the name, which is in the Hebrew text, by long disuse, is now quite lost. I would say that it would be best to stay with the original Jews as given to us by the early Church, and not one of the errant translations which have sprung up with the advent of Protestantism. Satan has used the divided church to build his own tower of Babel of bibles. My strong recommendation would be for you to find a Douay Rheims Version, and use it. You will be surprised to see how many errors there are in the modern day ‘bibles,’ and if you can accept, that even in the very early Church, there were dissensions about the books in the Bible, some of the Jewish converts (mostly Pharisee converts) wanting to stay with the Hebrew Canon, the rest wanted to add the ‘Deutero-Canonical’ seven books, plus 4 chapters, plus 70 verses missing in the post 1521 bibles of Luther and others. He goes on: “WHat is in the Holy Bible must be done as God’s Holy Spirit reveals it to us so that we may be Disciples of Christ or Followers of the Word of God.” You are correct in this statement, and without a doubt we must adhere to all that is written: “Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions, which you have learned, whether by word or by our epistle” (2Th 2:14). The word ‘tradition’ is greatly maligned and misunderstood. The unwritten traditions which we have received, handed down from the apostles, and the early fathers of the Church, are to be received with the same power and effect as the written word. Returning to the question of calling no one on earth ‘father,’ it is best that we look at the entire statement made by Jesus: “But be not you called Rabbi, for One is your Master, and all you are brethren. And call none your father upon earth, for One is your Father, Who is in Heaven. Neither be ye called masters, for One is your Master, Christ(Mt 23:8-10). The meaning is, that our Father in Heaven is incomparably more to be regarded, than any father upon earth, and no master is to be followed, who would lead us away from Christ. But this does not hinder us from calling our parents ‘father’ and ‘mother.’ On the contrary we are by the law of God to have a due respect both for our parents, and our spiritual fathers, and for our school masters and teachers. This name ‘father’ as used by the Roman Catholic, Anglican, Episcopal, Orthodox, and Coptic churches is a title of dignity, the same as ‘President,’ or ‘Your Honor’ in the Courts of Law, etc. This then brings us to the question of Master, Teacher, Father. ‘One is your Master,’ or Teacher, Who is the Christ. There was supposed to be under Him one Vicar, Peter, and after him, the successors of Peter, who with all their subordinates would teach the one and the same doctrine in every part of the world. But starting in the late 400’s with the Coptic breakaway, and then with the multiplicity of cults and sects, which every day are dividing and subdividing into fresh cults and sects, no two leaders can be found teaching exactly the same doctrine in all points. Each is not only allowed, but expected to follow his own private spirit, and to build a creed based upon his own interpretation of Scripture. This is the error which you (XYZ) are promoting when you say: ‘and in turn follow what the Holy Bible says and call on our Father God YHWH to interpret it for us if we do not understand.’ You are not in the truth! You are with those who do not know the truth. They do not teach the truth! How can they teach truth when they do not have a complete or even a true Bible? The Catholic Church gave us the Bible, the Bible did not give us the Church! As far as ‘call no man your father upon the earth’ you must read what Saint Paul says: “I write not these things to confound you, but I admonish you as my dearest children. For if you have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet not many fathers, for in Christ Jesus, by the gospel, I have begotten you” (1Co 4:14,15). Saint Paul refers to his sons Timothy, Titus, what did they all him – ‘uncle’? Did not Elisha cry out to Elijah as he went up by a whirlwind into Heaven: “My father, my father, the chariot of Israel, and the driver thereof…”? (2K 2:11,12). Did not Jesus say in the parable of the rich man who cried and said: “Father Abraham, have mercy on me…send Lazarus…”? (Lk 16:24). Let us go back and read the full statement of what Saint Paul said: “For I think that God has set forth us apostles, the last, as it were men appointed to death. We are made a spectacle to the world and to angels and to men. We are fools for Christ’s sake, but you are wise in Christ, we are weak, but you are strong, you are honorable, but we without honour. Even unto this hour we both hunger and thirst and are naked and are buffeted and have no fixed abode. And we labour, working with our own hands. We are reviled, and we bless. We are persecuted, and we suffer it. We are blasphemed, and we entreat. We are made as the refuse of this world, the off-scouring of all, even until now. I write not these things to confound you, but I admonish you as my dearest children. For if you have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet not many fathers, for in Christ Jesus, by the gospel, I have begotten you. Wherefore, I beseech you, be ye followers of me as I also am of Christ. For this cause have I sent to you Timothy, who is my dearest son and faithful in the Lord. Who will put you in mind of my ways, which are in Christ Jesus, as I teach every where in every church” (1Co 4:9-17). Notice his words, ‘my dearest children…I have begotten you…my dearest son.’ Saint Paul is not contradicting Christ Jesus! Rather he is following His teachings. You go on to state: “Also, as I went thru your website, there is no talk of repentance or submission to God. Only about the 7 sacraments which are not in the Holy Bible. It seems as if though the person who brought you to the truth, then started teaching you all these things and pretty much told you to sit in the catholic religion and do as you are told. I don’t want to offend you but the Word of God is the final word, not what any ‘man’ or ‘elder’ or ‘father’ ‘deacon’ etc… thinks about what the Word of God means or means to say.”  In reply and without being in any way hash, but you seem to have been indoctrinated in some kind of religious sect which is focused on error, and not on fact. Incidently, the ‘protestant’ bibles omit the word ‘penance,’ – why? The purpose of my web site is not to preach repentance or submission to God, but to show forth His truth to an unbelieving world, soon to be severely punished with Great Tribulation. You err greatly when you say that the 7 sacraments which are not in the Holy Bible. They are! Let us first see what they are and their purpose, and then how they came about. The first two Sacraments, Baptism and Confessions, are given to us for our personal preparation in pleasing our God. The second two Sacraments, Holy Communion and Confirmation, are for our gaining co-union and unity in our God. The third two Sacraments, Matrimony and Holy Order, are for our perfection and station in life. The last Sacrament, Extreme Unction, is the final anointing of our eternal unity forever in the Eternal Word. The Seven Sacraments allow man of his own free will to return to Almighty God: At the Fall, in the act of disobedience, man fell from grace (Gn 3:24). The creature, made to the image of our God was destroyed, but in the Sacrament of Baptism the way was made for man to be washed and renewed in the Creator’s peace (Gn 8:11). Man would continue to sin, and so God did institute the Sacrament of Confessions, for man to be made immaculate again (Jn 20:22,23). Through Jesus Christ, our Lord set up the Sacrament of Holy Communion, so that man could come back to unity in Him, and God the Creator could re-enter His creature, man, allowing man to return into holy co-union in God (Mt 26:26-28). Our Savior recognized in man that the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak, and so He established the Sacrament of Confirmation to assist man to receive the Spirit of God, that is, the Holy Ghost, back into his life (Lk 24:49). At the Fall, the unity of man and woman in marriage was broken, and the evil one became an intruder in marriage. Our Merciful God established the Sacrament of Matrimony (Mk 10:9), whereby man and woman could return to holy unity in each other, symbolic of the unity of God and man (Jn 17:23). At the Fall, man broke the priestly relationship with God, and man could no longer minister in His creation because of his enslavement to the devil. Our Lord God established a way for man to minister to God in purity and truth through the Sacrament of Holy Order of the Priesthood (Lk 22:19). At the Fall, man incurred the sin of death when he disobeyed the Lord, and became subject to the eternal death of Satan. God Almighty established the Sacrament of Extreme Unction, allowing man to avoid eternal death, and come to the lasting and highest anointing, which we receive in Jesus, Eternal Life (Lk 7:11-15). Part of the error why man today is so out of touch with the reality of the Word of God, is that he has been indoctrinated with error and bigotry. Jesus said: “Many false prophets shall rise and shall seduce many” (Mt 24:11), and so it has happened today, the false prophets in Protestantism, Romanism, and all the so very many thousands of ‘christian’ churches – some maintain that there are 30,000 protestant religions. Beware! See where you (XYZ) stand! I have traveled in over 100 countries of the world. I do not have a permanent home. I was born in Ireland, and since the Lord called me out into the Mojave Desert in California in the 1980’s to be instructed by Him, I have not had a place to lay my head. Today I am in …, awaiting His next instruction. I go when and where I am sent by Jesus. I have observed with interest what Jesus said: “But yet the Son of man, when He comes, shall He find, think you, faith on earth?” (Lk 18:8). I have been on my knees beseeching Jesus where is this faith to be found? I have been asking Him: “Where are the 144,000 who follow the Lamb?’ I have understood the meaning of that number and why He said: “And I beheld: and lo a Lamb stood upon Mount Sion, and with Him an hundred forty-four thousand, having His Name and the Name of His Father written on their foreheads….These are they who were not defiled with women, for they are virgins. These follow the Lamb whithersoever He goes. These were purchased from among men, the firstfruits to God and to the Lamb” (Apoc 14:1,4). You quote: “Acts 7:48 – However, the Most High does not live in houses made by men. As the prophet says Acts 17:24 – God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands.” I would draw your attention to what Saint Paul says: “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, and after this the judgment, so also Christ was offered once to exhaust the sins of many, the second time He shall appear without sin in them that expect Him unto salvation” (Hb 9:27,28). He says in another place: “Seeing it is a just thing with God to repay tribulation to them that trouble you, and to you who are troubled, rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from Heaven with the angels of His power, in a flame of fire, giving vengeance to them who know not God and who obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. Who shall suffer eternal punishment in destruction, from the face of the Lord and from the glory of His power, when He shall come to be GLORIFIED IN HIS SAINTS and to be made WONDERFUL IN ALL THEM who have believed, because our testimony was believed upon you in that day. Wherefore also we pray always for you that our God would make you worthy of His vocation and fulfil all the good pleasure of His goodness and the work of faith in power, that the Name of our Lord Jesus may be GLORIFIED IN YOU, and YOU IN HIM, according to the grace of our God and of the Lord Jesus Christ” (2Th 1:6-12). In order to understand this re-examine the Third and Fourth Sacraments above. This kind of teaching is not uncommon in the Old Testament: “Give ye glory to God for Israel, His magnificence, and His power is in the clouds. God is wonderful in His saints, the God of Israel is He who will give power and strength to His people. Blessed be God” (Ps 67:35,36). (This would be Ps 68 in a protestant bible). All of christendom have turned away from the truth and reality of how God comes IN His people. Where are the 144,000? If you re-enter my website, you should read the very first page, and then go to the downloads, and read “The Reign of Christ in His Second Coming.” You say: “I appreciate your time and I thank God for the time He has allowed. I pray in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ that our Father God YHWH illuminates our path and that neither of us be deceived by spirits of slumber, deception, or pride. God bless us all Aquinas.” I thank you for your time (XYZ) , and I hope that in humility of spirit your questions have been answered, and perhaps an enlightenment as been given to you, so that you can pursue the holiness of truth, in the perfection of our Heavenly Father! I take from the language you use that you are probably an American, and most probably from the USA. You have a great diversity of religions there, and as I have traveled to all of the 50 states, as well as most of the provinces of Canada, I sympathize with you to an extent because ‘churches’ open up with such frequency that it is scary. Your televangelists are a nightmare, and the Roman church is a disgrace for their departure from the fulness of the truth of the Seven Sacraments, and from following the protest-ant errors and their cults. If you want to be serious about saving your soul, ask why Jesus said that only a few would enter by the narrow gate. Ask yourself why only 144,000 before the Great Tribulation? Ask yourself, if there is a possibility that you, yes you, could even be wrong? In confidence in Jesus, in the certitude of His calling, in the perfection of His anointing, I send you blessings in abundance. Father Aquinas.

In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen. – Part 3

Apart from the ‘sons of men’ (sons of the devil), the ‘sons of God’ stayed faithful to God and there are 12 generations form Adam to Noah and the Flood. The number 12 signifies order, or government. But a number of the ‘sons of God’ were bewitched by the beauty of the ‘sons of men’ and left the worship of God to join in the enticements of the sons of the devil: “And God seeing that the wickedness of men was great on the earth, and that all the thought of their heart was bent upon evil at all times, it repented Him that He had made man on the earth. And being touched inwardly with sorrow of heart He said: I will destroy man, whom I have created, from the face of the earth, from man even to beasts, from the creeping thing even to the fowls of the air, for it repents Me that I have made them” (Gn 6:5). This brought on the Flood in which only the ‘sons of God’ survived and all the ‘sons of the devil’ were destroyed.

When Noah and his sons and wives came out of the Ark, the earth was pristine and clean with no sin. However sin entered into the second son whose name was Ham. Noah cursed his seed, and it from this offspring came Nimrod and those who built the tower of Babel and later Babylon. Consistently in the descendants of Noah, Abraham, Moses, Saul, David, Solomon and the following leaders rebellion against God Almighty was exercised.

The sons of Solomon divided Israel into 2 kingdoms, the north kingdom with 10 tribes was called ‘Israel’ and the south with 2 tribes was called ‘Judah.’ In the history of the divided kingdoms there were 19 kings in the northern kingdom of Israel, and scripture records that not one of them did that was pleasing to the Lord. In the southern kingdom there were 20 kings and only 8 of them did that which was pleasing to the Lord. The rebellion against God the Almighty is recorded in the Book of Machabees, and for some unearthly reason, the success of Judas Machabeus against the enemies of Israel is astonishing when one considers that with a small army he put to flight the nations fighting against him, and then he goes and makes a concord with the Roman Empire for protection! That lack of trust in the Saviour of Israel ended in the Roman conquest and enslavement of Israel, the destruction of the Temple, and the Jewish inability to perform the rites and sacrifices which God commanded. It is written: “But if you and your children, revolting, shall turn away from following Me, and will not keep My commandments, and My ceremonies, which I have set before you, but will go and worship strange gods, and adore them, I will take away Israel from the face of the land which I have given them, and the Temple which I have sanctified to My Name, I will cast out of My sight, and Israel shall be a proverb, and a byword among all people” (3K9:6,7). The Roman Empire was the false gods of the Jews.
