A Life And Death Pickle Of A Predicament

In our Sneakers article, Name Those Tenets, it lists the six basic tenets of Christianity. The sixth one, as the apostle Paul pointed out, is eternal judgement. Eternal judgement takes place at the great resurrection, where all who have lived and are in the grave, are raised from the dead and judged according to their works. This judgement that takes place is a decision to eternal life or eternal death. The predicament we find ourselves in as Christians, with the noticeable emerging Beast of Babylon the Great, his image, his mark and the number of his name, 666, all goes back to the simple choice we were given way back when.

In fact, it is a very simple choice. We can choose blessings and life or we can choose curses and death. Granted, no sane person whose little grey cells are cooperating with a few working synapses would knowingly choose curses and death. Nevertheless, we have managed to do just that. Considering the precariousness of our dilemma, this fact should give us pause in an Old Testament sort of way reminiscent of the days of yore by shredding our trendy designer faux ripped threads even more [Threads], then putting on sackcloth and ashes [Sackcloth And Ashes]. We need to get ourselves unstuck from our smartphones and social media for a sufficient period of time to do so, but the likelihood of this happening is about nil for anyone under the age of 30, and maybe a 1-2% chance for everyone else. Besides, where does one find sackcloth and ashes these days? Dude, like duh! ... at Amazon's trendy designer accoutrements available for purchase by smartphone.  [Designer Sackcloth And Ashes].

Our default choice, therefore, not only affects our physical lives, curses and the first death [see our Newslink section for daily evidence], but also our eternal existence or lack thereof … the second life or the second death. There is no King’s X of purgatory before ostensibly trotting off to Heaven. [See the Feature article, Heaven Can Wait]. The choices we make manifest themselves in our individual, personal lives as the ekklesia, and collectively, on a national scale.

As Moses, who was a Levite, and not Jewish, said to us, all twelve nations of Israel, not only to those of Judah, “See, I have set before you this day life and good, and death and evil; in that I command you this day to love the LORD your God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgements, that you may live and multiply: and the LORD your God shall bless you in the land where you go to possess it.”1 [See the Feature article, Why Was Jesus Jewish, But Not Moses?]. Now cursed, we are losing our land. [Our Land Divided For Their Gain; also Pentagon Command Centers, Only Zionist Israel, Babylon the Great, Excluded].  

Moses continues, “I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you, life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both you and your seed may live: That you may love the LORD your God, that you may obey his voice, and that you may cleave unto him: for he is your life, and the length of your days: that you may dwell in the land which the LORD swore unto your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob [Israel], to give them.” [Deu. 30:15, 16, 19, 20].2 This is the wisdom Moses imparted to us, the children of Israel. And this is the wisdom we have chucked out the window. Hence, our pickle.

Moses continued to the children of Israel, “Gather unto me all the elders of your tribes, and your officers, that I may speak these words in their ears, and call heaven and earth to record against them. For I know that after my death you will utterly corrupt yourselves, and turn aside from the way which I have commanded you; and evil will befall you in the latter days; because you will do evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger through the work of your hands. And Moses spoke in the ears of all the congregation of Israel the words of this song, until they were ended.” [Deu. 31:28-30; also Acts 7:41]. 

We may not think of Moses as a latter day prophet giving us a warning in these last days, but he was and he did. And it is true that we have become a materialistic society, to the point that we do indeed seek first the clever works of our hands rather than the power and authority of our Lord in our lives. And lest we think this is solely referring to the one percenters with their private jets, yachts, houses and cars, we need to understand it is more fundamental than this. It permeates all levels of society throughout the four corners of the Earth via all our addictive, manmade, can’t live without Big Brother “smart” devices connecting us to the wonderful "buying and selling" world of retail sales. [See What We Can't Live Without Is Killing Us; EMR Poisoning].

As we read in Jeremiah, “And I will utter my judgements against them touching all their wickedness, who have forsaken me, and have burned incense unto other gods [See Ritual Incense], and worshiped the works of their own hands.” [Jer. 1:16]. Worship here is the Hebrew, שָׁחָה, shâchâh, a verb meaning to give obeisance [differential respect], reverence or great devotion to. And we do give great devotion, to the point of addiction, walking around, head down, thumbs flailing away, like zombies in a trance, fixated on the little screens of our smart phones. We should be so smart. 

“Hear you the word which the LORD speaks unto you, O House of Israel: Thus says the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. For the customs of the people are vain: for one cuts a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.” [Jer. 10:1-3].

“Silver spread into plates is brought from Tarshish, and gold from Uphaz, the work of the workman, and of the hands of the founder: blue and purple is their clothing: they are all the work of cunning men. But the LORD is the true God, he is the living God, and an everlasting king: at his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation.” [Jer. 10:9, 10].

Moses’ admonition and prophetic warning is given to us, the children of the nations of Israel, in the book of the Law. Remember, Christ came to fulfil all that which was written of him in the Law and the Prophets. “Think not that I am come to destroy the Law, or the Prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.” [Mat. 5:17]. What we just read above about our LORD’s anger, and wrath directed to us in these latter days are written in the Law and the Prophets. [See the Feature article, Three Temple Ages Make A Plan].

You see, the predicament we are in now, meaning the House of Israel in the latter days, the Christian age, goes all the way back to what Moses said concerning us in these very same last days. Even a cursory glance of our daily headlines shows that evil is befalling our nations, which means we are doing evil in the sight of the LORD. Ironically, the number one “Christian” holiday is the number one culprit, the trillion dollar "work of our hands" retail extravaganza of the year. [Trillion Dollars]. Also see the Feature article, Our Corrupted Compass for the details of what Christ our LORD thinks of those trees and the works of our hands that get put underneath them.

And the prophecies of the prophets of old and those in the New Testament, especially concerning Babylon the Great, are falling upon us, both individually and as the nations of the House of Israel. [See the Feature article, Why Do We Believe The Lies?]. After all, the father of the lie is the Destroyer. [John 8:44]. By following the father of lies, we have been destroying the promises of our Lord God’s blessings and good life, doing evil just as Moses said. [The Lack Of Virtue Leads To Evil].

The danger for those who profess Christianity, but have no idea of our Biblical heritage [btw, we aren’t Gentiles, see the Feature article, Moving Forward], is that we have been duped into celebrating evil, the pagan falsehoods of Christmas, and the Babylonian spring goddess of Heaven, Easter, among others. [See the Feature articles menu, the Holidays section]. The fact that Churchianity doesn’t see either of these pagan holidays as “doing evil in the sight of our LORD,” but just the opposite, goes to the extent of our errant ways.

We have, as a result, unwittingly adopted a self-righteous attitude, “It isn’t me who has chosen to follow evil, but all those other guys. I’m a good guy.” [Pro. 14:12]. This mindset keeps us on the path of turning Christ against us as our enemy. It’s time for us to humbly ask of our LORD, “Show me the error of my ways, and strengthen my spirit that I will walk in your ways, serving you in the love of the truth of your word.” Our lives depend upon it. [See the Feature article, Christ Against Christians].

Therefore, the path before us is to recognize our shortcomings in this regard and choose life, eternal life and blessings. As our LORD and Savior told us, “Come unto me, all you that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and you shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” [Mat. 11:28-30]. The House of Israel, the US, UK, including Canada, Australia and NZ, and the Western European nations, are a bus over the cliff. You are being offered a parachute at the emergency exit door. Do you take it? Or do you stay in your seat with the herd who think they're flying rather than falling?

Mindless and undiscerning, we have chosen to take up the daily heavy yoke of lies, deceit, misery and suffering in our lives. Like frogs in an ever warming pot of water, we call it the “good life.” It is anything but that. “Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked [Heb. בָּעַט, ba`at, metaphorically, to neglect]: you have gotten fat, you have grown thick, you are covered with fatness [Heb. נָטַשׁ, natash, abandonment, deserted]; then he forsook God which made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation.” [Deu. 32:15]. Jeshurun literally means the Upright One. It is used symbolically as the ideal state of the 12 nations of Israel in relation to God. [See America's Obesity; and Decline In Christianity].

So not only have we gotten fat of body, but metaphorically as Moses pointed out, we can lay claim to being fatheaded as well regarding our abandonment of the truth of God. We refuse to listen to that which would save us. “Of the Rock that begat you, you are unmindful, and have forgotten God that formed you.” [Deu. 32:18]. Yet, we are so “fat” as to think that celebrating Christmas and Easter is remembering and honoring God. It’s not. It’s a whopping portion of spiritual junk food deep fried in deceit. And we're gobbling down these lies hand over fist, abandoning the truth of our Lord’s word to us, thereby having grown thick with the fatness of curses and death.

This reference by Moses, the Rock that gave us life, is our LORD God, Jesus Christ. As the New Testament apostle Paul pointed out in his letter to the ekklesia in Corinth, “Moreover, brethren, I would not that you should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; and were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; and did all eat the same spiritual meat; and did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.” [1 Cor. 10:1-4].

If we don’t understand where we have gotten off the path as the nations of the House of Israel, begin with reading the Christmas articles as well as the Easter article by clicking the Home page Feature articles banner. [Home]. Read the Covenant articles too for understanding why we are in such hot water, “lightly esteeming Jesus Christ, our salvation.”

Not only have we forsaken the advice Moses gave to us, we don’t even know that we are the “us.” However, our Christian ancestors in the first century knew they were of Israel. And they never celebrated either of what are now the two major “covered in fatness" holidays. [See the Feature article, The Good News Colour Revolution].

As Christ plainly said to a gentile woman, “I am sent only to the lost sheep of the House of Israel.” [Mat. 15:24]. Christ was our Rock and still is. But will we take the advice given to us, the children of Israel, and return to the path with the love of the truth set before us?

Even lacking theological IQ points, we should recognize that we are rapidly approaching the advent of the Wicked One, the lawless Babylon the Great with its HQ in Jerusalem. It will be the worse time in the history of the world since there was a nation. [Dan. 12:1]. This ties in very neatly with what Jeremiah said, “… at his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation.” It would be good for us to read the end of Deuteronomy beginning with chapter 31 through the end of chapter 34. [31-34]. They apply to us in these last days.

Why are we Christians in this life and death pickle of a predicament? It’s because we have forsaken the love of the truth of the word of God. We have chosen to go down the heavy, depressing roadway, ignorant of our heritage, thereby choosing curses and death, as Moses warned about, yet believing we have chosen blessings and life. A good tree doesn’t produce evil and corrupt fruit. [Luke 6:43].

“For I know that after my death you will utterly corrupt yourselves, and turn aside from the way which I have commanded you; and evil will befall you in the latter days; because you will do evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger through the work of your hands.”

And as our current actions are evil in the sight of our Lord, and provoke him to anger, and as we feel the strength of the wrath increasingly upon us, we must know that it is by the hand of our LORD God, the Rock, that it is happening to us. "Why do you cry because of your bruise? Your sorrow is incurable; for the greatness of your iniquity, your sins are manifold, I have done these things to you." [Jer. 30:15].

For as we read in Revelation chapter nine, the sixth angel and second woe to befall men, "And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts." [ibid, v. 20, 21].

Or being wise, we can make the choice as a Christian of the House of Israel to stand up with the truth and get back on the path set before us. In other words, we can repent of the works of our hands. Will we step forward as Christians to accept Christ’s promise? “Come unto me, all you that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” It's time for us to get out of this pickle of a predicament. We need to seek first the power and authority, the kingdom of God, and his works in our lives rather than that of men. We've been made an offer, good for a little while longer, we shouldn't be able to refuse. [See the Feature article, And Now, A Word From Our Sponsor].

Therefore, take a little time to read and reflect on the words of Moses in the last few chapters of Deuteronomy, especially chapter 32. “And Moses spoke in the ears of all the congregation of Israel the words of this song, until they were ended.”

As Job wrote, "For I know my redeemer lives, and he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth." [Job 19:25]. While we have forgotten the words of Moses to us near the end of the last days, our LORD God has not. We find in the Book of Revelation at the return of Christ, “And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. And they sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are your works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are your ways, you King of saints.” [Rev. 15:2, 3].


1 This promise applies not only to the land of ancient Israel, but to the land the nations, plural, possess today. See the Feature article, Ten Horns, Ten Nations. However, our birthright promises are slipping from our grasp exactly due to our ignoring the warning that Moses gave us for the latter days ... we are reaping the curses “doing evil in the sight of the LORD.”

2 None of these promises apply to the Zionist government of the nation state of Israel. They are the descendants of Edom, Israel’s brother. For an in depth discussion, see the Feature articles, Is That You, Big Brother? and Isaiah 63: Big Brother, The Prophetic 21st Century Antichrist].
