PATIENCE NEVER FAILS
“… PATIENCE overrides TIME and redeems the YEARS. Abraham was 75 years old when God called Him. He had Isaac at 100 years and lived another 75 years, to die at 175 years…
PATIENCE NEVER FAILS
“… PATIENCE overrides TIME and redeems the YEARS. Abraham was 75 years old when God called Him. He had Isaac at 100 years and lived another 75 years, to die at 175 years…
1. PATIENCE is the proverbial KEY of David which opens the vaults of God’s goodness. The Bible says: “For YE HAVE NEED OF PATIENCE, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might RECEIVE THE PROMISE” [Hebrews 10:36] PATIENCE is a VERB, in spiritual parlance, and not complacency or slothfulness. It is steady FAITH and labour in spiritual exercises to SEEK FIRST the Kingdom of God and receive the PROMISE, as it is written “SEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD, and his righteousness; and ALL THESE THINGS shall be added…” [Matthew 6:33] The “KINGDOM” and “ALL THESE THINGS” are poles apart and you cannot devolve equal priority on both. Choosing the KINGDOM FIRST is the WISDOM of God and works contrary to the wisdom of this world. If you choose the KINGDOM FIRST, be prepared to be called names. Choosing “ALL THESE THINGS” FIRST agrees with the wisdom of this world, but is outright FOOLISHNESS, as the Bible says: “… WISDOM OF THIS WORLD IS FOOLISHNESS with God …” [1 Corinthians 3:19]
2. PATIENCE is the engine, FAITH is the car; without PATIENCE to drive the car, FAITH is inept. If you truly BELIEVE God, you will PRIORITIZE His WORD, fully persuaded He is able to “… do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us” [Ephesians 3:20] You see, “GOD IS HIS WORD” [John 1:1] When you have prayed and fasted, add PATIENCE to your FAITH, “… Behold, the HUSBANDMAN WAITETH for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath LONG PATIENCE for it, until he receive the early and latter rain” [James 5;7] You are the HUSBANDMAN and your spiritual exercises are the seed sown. Some seeds, like corn, mature for harvest in three months and that is it. Cocoa takes 2 to 3 years and brings forth annually for close to 50 years. Having put your seed in the ground, do not compare yourself with others or waver in FAITH and inadvertently uproot your seed before maturity. Retain your confidence in God at all times, “… For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord” [James 1:6-7]
3. PATIENCE overrides TIME and redeems the YEARS. Abraham was 75 years old when God called Him. He had Isaac at 100 years and lived another 75 years, to die at 175 years [Genesis 25:7] David was a youngster when Samuel anointed him as King over Israel, but WAITED PATIENTLY another 13 -15 years to receive the crown, as it is written: “I WAITED PATIENTLY for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and HEARD MY CRY. He BROUGHT ME UP ALSO OUT OF AN HORRIBLE PIT, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings” [Psalm 40:1-2] When opportunity arose to kill Saul and help himself to the crown, David to chose to WAIT PATIENTLY on the Lord, saying: “… and some bade me kill thee: but mine eye spared thee; and I said, I will not put forth mine hand against my lord; for he is the LORD’S anointed” [1 Samuel 24:10] Though we live in a push button world accustomed to instant gratification, you must not succumb to charlatans who have turned the gospel into an ATM machine for gain. I exhort you to learn to PATIENTLY SEEK the KINGDOM FIRST and “ALL THESE THINGS” shall be added. God surely hears and will lift you out of that horrible pit and establish you.
4. PATIENCE NEVER FAILS and will not fail as we navigate the last days of this dying world. Presently, everywhere you turn, there is distress and men’s hearts “… failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth…” [Luke 21:26] This is not the time to panic or run for help where there is none. As things go from bad to worse across the globe, I charge you to WAIT PATIENTLY on the Lord to RENEW YOUR STRENGTH, as it is written: “But THEY THAT WAIT UPON THE LORD SHALL RENEW THEIR STRENGTH; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint” [Isaiah 40:31] Finally, if you are not born again, you have no STRENGTH to RENEW. I charge you, therefore, to receive Jesus Christ today and hold on tight, amen
1. I write with utmost respect to Senior Pastors, Bishops and Overseers, Grace and Peace in Jesus name, amen. Whereas your duties and responsibilities are well known, “… I will not be negligent to put you always in REMEMBRANCE OF THESE THINGS, though ye know them, and be established IN THE PRESENT TRUTH” [2 Peter 1:12] I call you to REMEMBER how you were once a sinner, received Jesus Christ and was initiated into PRESENT TRUTH by the Holy Ghost. Many years have passed, yet the SELF-REVEALING WORD remains TRUE and PRESENT in you, if you are in Him, working “… in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure” [Philippians 2:13] The ONE who chose to make you a shepherd over His flock also instructed me to remind you, saying “But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto WHOMSOEVER MUCH IS GIVEN, OF HIM SHALL BE MUCH REQUIRED… ” [Luke 12: 48] God has given you so much and expects more from you and I. He will give us more if need be, but that servant “… which knew his lord’s will, and PREPARED NOT HIMSELF, neither did according to his will, SHALL BE BEATEN WITH MANY STRIPES” [Luke 12: 47]
2. Whatever your ecclesiastical title, you are primarily a minister of Jesus Christ, who chose you to be His shepherd and not the Elders or parochial council. I charge you, therefore, not to be unduly distracted by Church politics and administration, as to “… leave the word of God, and serve tables” [Acts 6:2] Take a cue from the Apostles and give yourself “… continually to PRAYER, and to the MINISTRY OF THE WORD” [Acts 6:4] Reduce time spent in meetings and delegate tasks to faithful hands to create more space to ABIDE in God’s presence. Thus, says the Lord: “Abide in me, and I in you. As the BRANCH CANNOT BEAR FRUIT OF ITSELF, EXCEPT IT ABIDE IN THE VINE; no more can ye, except ye abide in me” [John 15:4] Who you are and what you will be shall be determined in Christ’s presence, not by parish records. Therefore, be not deceived by the praises of me, “… for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God” [Luke 16:15] Subject your companions to the test of the wisdom of God, knowing fully well, “… companion of fools shall be destroyed” [Proverbs 13:20] Pray over every invitation to preach or join a religious association. As a general in God’s army, you cannot be a social or political activist in the “AFFAIRS OF THIS LIFE”, as the Bible says: “No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier” [2 Timothy 2:4]
3. I must not forget to remind you to take good care of the household of God. At all times, remember, you are a man of God, not God over men and we are all BRETHREN, as it is written: “But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and ALL YE ARE BRETHREN” [Matthew 23:8] The ministers in your fold are BRETHREN, not slaves or adversaries to be treated shabbily. Feed them, clothe them and pay them decent wages as fellow servants in the Lord, not as hirelings. Do not hold back from pouring all God has given you, materially and spiritually, in them to raise BELOVED BROTHERS and FAITHFUL MINISTERS. You and I know how God highly exalted and blessed Paul, and he held nothing back from Tychicus as it is written: “All my state shall Tychicus declare unto you, who is a BELOVED BROTHER, and a FAITHFUL MINISTER and FELLOWSERVANT in the Lord” [Colossians 4:7] Paul poured himself into Tychicus and gained a BELOVED BROTHER and helper. You cannot do it alone, you need TYCHICUS in your ministry and your Tychicus will not fall down from heaven. I assure you, there are no seminaries on earth, where men like Tychicus are trained. Men like Tychicus are not born and cannot be bought, they are raised in love and sincerity. Do not ask to get FAITHFUL MINISTERS; the pastors under you are waiting to be raised and surnamed TYCHICUS.
4. Take heed to the care of Christ’s flock over “…which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to FEED THE CHURCH OF GOD, which he hath purchased with his own blood” [Acts 20:28] The flocks are by no means yours, you are an OVERSEER. The RIGHTFUL OWNER is Jesus Christ, who bought us with His blood and He, lone, will assess HOW and WHAT you FEED His sheep. Three times, Jesus Christ told Peter to FEED His flock, saying: “… unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, LOVEST THOU ME? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, FEED MY SHEEP” [John 21:17] The test of HOW you FEED the flocks is LOVE. Do you FEED His sheep in LOVE or with an eye to material gain? Those who FEED the flock with “STEROID” gospel to FEAST on Christ’s sheep are HIRELINGS and will run at sight of affliction, “… because HE IS AN HIRELING, and careth not for the sheep” [John 10:13] If truly you LOVE the Lord and His sheep, you will FEED them on FRESH BREAD of green pastures and not on STALE BREAD of denominational creed. Good shepherds tarry in God’s presence to receive revelations of the WORD OF TRUTH to FEED the flocks with FRESH BREAD. If you drive the weak too hard or allow the strong to lag behind you will scatter the fold, and “Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith the LORD” [Jeremiah 23:1]
5. Finally, it is your duty to warn the flocks and PREPARE yourself for the coming of the Lord. The Senior Pastor, “… which knew his lord’s will, and PREPARED NOT HIMSELF, neither did according to his will, SHALL BE BEATEN WITH MANY STRIPES” [Luke 12: 47] He that has an ear let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the Church, amen
1. FATAL DISTRACTION is creeping on the world as HORSES of TRIBULATION run wild for the last time, bringing PERILOUS TIMES, as the Bible says: “This know also, that in the last days PERILOUS TIMES shall come” [2 Timothy 3:1] The HORSES in Revelation 6:1-6, are wreaking havoc in all directions to prepare the way of HELL and DEATH on earth [Revelation 6:7-8] The fabric of society is torn, nations are rudderless, nature is gone haywire and men’s hearts are “… FAILING THEM FOR FEAR, and for looking after THOSE THINGS which are coming on the earth… ” (Luke 21:26) For the ELECT, “THOSE THINGS” are the SIGN to “LOOK UP” and PREPARE to meet the Lord, as it is written: “And when THESE THINGS begin to come to pass, then LOOK UP, and LIFT UP YOUR HEADS; for YOUR REDEMPTION DRAWETH NIGH” [Luke 21:28] Regrettably, multitudes are daily DISTRACTED from “LOOKING UP” by pervading terror, wars, climate change, economic meltdown, social decadence, etc. Brethren, this is not time to be TROUBLED and DISTRACTED by the affairs of this world, but to “WATCH” and “… PRAY, THAT YE ENTER NOT INTO TEMPTATION: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak” [Matthew 26:41 I caution you, therefore, not to succumb to FATAL DISTRACTION occasioned by TRIBULATION, in so much as “… we must through MUCH TRIBULATION enter into the kingdom of God” [Acts 14:22]
2. The RIDER, in Revelation 6:2, was Satan as FALSE CHRIST, on a WHITE HORSE riding to perdition, as the Bible says: “For there shall arise FALSE CHRISTS, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, IF IT WERE POSSIBLE, THEY SHALL DECEIVE THE VERY ELECT” [Matthew 24:24] The WHITE HORSE represent denominations. They look so much like the REAL THING but are FALSE by reason of DEVIATION from the WORD OF TRUTH. One denomination allows women to take the pulpit, whereas the Bible says: “…it is a shame for women to speak in the church” [1 Corinthians 14:35] Another EDITS the Lord’s Prayer, contrary to IMMUTABLE WORD of God which says: “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but MY WORDS shall not pass away” [Matthew 24:35] Denominations are PRETENDERS, professing Christ and compassing “…sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves” [Matthew 23:15] Brethren, denominational creeds are FATAL DISTRACTIONS to your FAITH. I therefore plead with you to stand in Bible TRUTH and refuse to be “… tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the SLEIGHT OF MEN, and CUNNING CRATINESS, whereby THEY LIE IN WAIT TO DECEIVE” [Ephesians 4:14] Remember, Christ is “… ONE BODY, and ONE SPIRIT, even as ye are called in ONE HOPE of your calling” [Ephesians 4:4]
3. Satan rode the RED HORSE, in Revelation 6:4,and “… POWER WAS GIVEN TO HIM that sat thereon to TAKE PEACE FROM THE EARTH, and that they should KILL ONE ANOTHER: and there was given unto him a GREAT SWORD” [Revelation 6:4] Satan rules over the kingdoms of this world with “POWER” and “GREAT SWORD” and give portions to those who worship him, as it is written: “And the devil said unto him, ALL THIS POWER WILL I GIVE THEE, and the GLORY OF THEM: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. If thou therefore wilt WORSHIP ME, ALL SHALL BE THINE” [Luke 4:6-7] Listen carefully, affairs of the kingdoms of this world are FATAL DISTRACTIONS to those who seek the Kingdom of God; they belong to those who bow before the devil. The Bible says: “Jesus answered, MY KINGDOM IS NOT OF THIS WORLD: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence” [John 18:36] Brethren, we are called to be WITNESSES of Jesus Christ, not SOCIAL or POLITICAL PRESSURE GROUPS. I exhort you to refuse every TEMPTATION to be DISTRACTED and ENTANGLED in affairs of kingdoms of this world as to stumble in FAITH and HOPE of His Coming, for no “… man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier” [2 Timothy 2:4]
4. The RIDER on the BLACK HORSE had a “… PAIR OF BALANCES in his hand” and a RESTRAINING ORDER from the midst of the four beast, saying: “And I heard a VOICE IN THE MIDST OF THE FOUR BEASTS say, A measure of WHEAT for a penny, and three measures of BARLEY for a penny; and see thou HURT NOT the OIL and the WINE” [Revelation 6:5-6] The BLACK HORSE signify elements of NATURE. The pair of BALANCES indicate CONTROL over NATURE. “WHEAT” and “BARLEY denote natural produce of the EARTH”. The KEY here is “HURT NOT”, which exposed the intention of the RIDER to DISTRACT by “HURTING” NATURE, as it is written: “And great EARTHQUAKES shall be in divers places, and FAMINES, and PESTILENCES; and FEARFUL SIGHTS and GREAT SIGNS shall there be from heaven” [Luke 21:11] Yes, CLIMATE CHANGE is real, but scientists merely explain what they observe. The REALITY of CLIMATE CHANGE is the BLACK HORSE and RIDER “HURTING NATURE” to FATALLY DISTRACT and ensnare multitudes in the NEW AGE RELIGION of “MOTHER NATURE”. Beloved, beware of the growing mantra of CLIMATE CHANGE as it sucks all beliefs into UNIVERSAL RELIGION of MOTHER NATURE. Those whose FAITH are limited to “WHEAT” and “BARLEY” shall be “HURT” and FATALLY DISTRACTED into ECUMENICAL HYPOCRISY. The ELECT, nurtured on “OIL” and “WINE” of the Holy Ghost will not be DISTRACTED, but ride out the storm until the appearance of the Lord.
5. Beloved, the appearance of the LORD is at hand and you cannot afford to be caught unawares, FATALLY DISTRACTED. I admonish you, therefore, in the name of the Lord to be “… SOBER, BE VIGILANT; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” [1 Peter 5:8] Seek the Lord NOW, while He may yet be found and He will give you strength and salvation, amen
1. Church is God LIVING in His SAINTS to BUILD for Himself a SPIRITUAL HOUSE, as the Bible says: “Know ye not that YE ARE THE TEMPLE OF GOD, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?” [1 Corinthians 3:16] Therefore, Church is not brick and glass but “… LIVELY STONES, are built up a SPIRITUAL HOUSE, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ” [1 Peter 2:5] The TRUE CHURCH is the “LITTLE FLOCK” of SAINTS established on the revelation of TRUTH in Jesus Christ, and to whom He said: “FEAR NOT, LITTLE FLOCK; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom” [Luke 12:32] Regrettably, there is a MAN-MADE Church in every generation that threatens the “LITTLE FLOCK”, hence the EXHORTATION to “FEAR NOT”. Thus, said the Lord: “They shall PUT YOU OUT OF THE SYNAGOGUES: yea, the TIME COMETH, THAT WHOSOEVER KILLETH YOU WILL THINK THAT HE DOETH GOD SERVICE” [John 16:2] The Jewish Church partially fulfilled this PROPHECY, in DELUDED conviction of doing God a favour. The ubiquitous DELUDED CHURCH of this age is destined to fulfil the PROPHECY to the letter “… BECAUSE THEY RECEIVED NOT THE LOVE OF TRUTH, that they might be saved…. GOD SHALL SEND THEM STRONG DELUSION, that they should BELIEVE A LIE” [2 Thessalonians 2:10-11]
2. WordNet Dictionary defines DELUSION as “erroneous BELIEF that is held in the face of EVIDENCE to the contrary”. The sure foundation of FAITH in Jesus Christ is HOPE, “For we are SAVED BY HOPE, BUT HOPE THAT IS SEEN IS NOT HOPE: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?” [Romans 8:24] HOPE in Jesus Christ is SINGULAR and fastened on what we shall be at His appearance, as the Bible says: “Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that when he shall appear, WE SHALL BE LIKE HIM; for we shall see him as he is” [1 John 3:2] What we shall be at His Coming is the bond that unites us in “… ONE BODY, and ONE SPIRIT, even as ye are called in ONE HOPE of your calling” [Ephesians 4:4] If HOPE is ONE, there must necessarily be ONE BODY, that is, the TRUE CHURCH under ONE SPIRIT. DELUDED CHURCH is not ONE BODY, but a monstrous network of denominations, each one parading HOPES outside ONE HOPE of our calling in Jesus Christ. One says I am CATHOLIC; another says I am METHODIST or PENTECOSTAL, etc., as it is written: “For while one saith, I am of Paul; and another, I am of Apollos; are ye not carnal?” [1 Corinthians 3:4] Brethren, if it is ONE HOPE, there cannot be many BODIES. I therefore charge you not to rest your FAITH on denominational doctrines, but on SURE HOPE of Christ’s Coming when “WE SHALL BE LIKE HIM”
3. Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary and Thesaurus defines DELUSION as “inability to distinguish between WHAT IS REAL and WHAT ONLY SEEMS TO BE REAL”. The Bible says: “For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though HE WAS RICH, yet for your sakes HE BECAME POOR, that YE THROUGH HIS POVERTY MIGHT BE RICH: [2 Corinthians 8:9] That “HE WAS RICH” and “HE BECAME POOR” were by no means a reflection of Christ’s financial status, but of “TRUE RICHES OF THE GLORY OF HIS INHERITANCE IN THE SAINTS” [Ephesians 1:18] REAL RICHES of the Church are SPIRITUAL not MATERIAL, and are summarized in “… ALL SPIRITUAL BLESSINGS in heavenly places in Christ” [Ephesians 1:3] Beloved, beware of “… men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, SUPPOSING THAT GAIN IS GODLINESS” who flaunt filthy lucre as PROOF of RICHES of Christ’s glory [1 Timothy 6:5] They are drunk with STRONG DELUSION, unable to distinguish REAL RICHES of Christ from fleeting illusions of MATERIAL PROSPERITY. Thus, says the Lord: “Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; AND KNOWEST NOT THAT THOU ART WRETCHED, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked” [Revelation 3:17] I exhort you in the name of the Lord, come out of DELUDED CONGREGATIONS, where material riches are celebrated above “SPIRITUAL BLESSINGS” and stand firm in SURE HOPE of Christ’s Coming, when we shall be clothed with unspeakable glory.
4. The TRUE CHURCH is God working in us “… to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the POWER THAT WORKETH IN US” [Ephesians 3:20] The “POWER THAT WORKETH IN US” is the Holy Ghost, which the apostles received when they were“… FIILED WITH THE HOLY GHOST, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance’ [Acts 2:4] I make bold to say the business of Church is not dependent on FINANCIAL ACUMEN, MANAGEMENT TECHNIQUES or ORATORY, but the POWER of the Holy Ghost working in us. Listen to Apostle Paul: “And my speech and my preaching was not with ENTICING WORDS OF MAN’S WISDOM, but in DEMONSTRATION OF THE SPIRIT AND OF POWER: That your FAITH SHOULD NOT STAND IN THE WISDOM OF MEN, BUT IN THE POWER OF GOD” [1 Corinthians 2:4-5] The POWER of the Holy Ghost turns the wretched sinner into a SAINT, adds souls to the Church and builds us up into ONE TRUE CHURCH. God alone adds to His Church and every “CHURCH GROWTH STRATEGY” outside the POWER of the Holy Ghost is DELUSION, as it is written: “… And the LORD ADDED TO THE CHURCH DAILY such as should be saved” [Acts 2:47] Those who pretend to build Church with EXTORTED OFFERING, LOANS, SORCERY and MANAGEMENT TECHNIQUES are DELUDED. Beloved, let us quit SELF DECEPTION and allow God to work in us to fulfil His PURPOSE. If you will REPENT and seek the Lord Jesus Christ, “… YE SHALL RECEIVE POWER, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you… “[Acts 1:8]
5. I charge to listen to the heavenly voice, saying: “… COME OUT OF HER, MY PEOPLE, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues” [Revelation 18:4] I enjoin you to come out of DELUDED CHURCH and receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour in SURE HOPE of His imminent appearance, amen.
GATES OF HELL
This DIMENSION of HELL is divided into compartments. First is QUEBER, that is, GRAVE, where the body of the dead are kept, awaiting judgment or resurrection. SECOND is HADES where souls of the wicked are imprisoned until the day of judgment. THIRD is SHEOL, where …..
1. HELL is real, but BURNING HELL is not; it is the product of many years of demonic disinformation. The Bible says: “… DEATH AND HELL DELIVERED UP THE DEAD WHICH WERE IN THEM AND THEY WERE JUDGED every man according to their works. And DEATH AND HELL WERE CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE. This is the second death” [Revelation 20:13-14] DEATH turns the dead over to prison houses of HELL until the day of judgment, when both shall deliver their detainees to be judged “ACCORDING TO THEIR WORKS” and the Lord shall say “… unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, YE CURSED INTO EVERLASTING FIRE, PREPARED FOR THE DEVIL AND HIS ANGELS” [Matthew 25:41] Presently, there is no one burning in “HELL” or in the LAKE OF FIRE, including Satan. If any man tells you he has been to BURNING HELL, ask him if he saw Satan burning? God will not send anyone into “EVERLASTING FIRE” without opportunity to stand before the throne of judgment. “EVERLASTING FIRE” was prepared for Satan and his angels and they shall be first to feel the flames, as it is written: “And the DEVIL THAT DECEIVED THEM WAS CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever” [Revelation 20:10] After them, “… whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the LAKE OF FIRE” [Revelation 20:15
2 The doctrine of BURNING HELL is satanic subterfuge to divert attention from the KINGDOM OF DARKNESS, with which we must fight, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against PRINCIPALITIES, POWERS, against the RULERS OF THE DARKNESS of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” [Ephesians 6:12] HELL is the kingdom of darkness, with which the Church must contend, as Jesus said: “… upon this rock I WILL BUILD MY CHURCH; AND THE GATES OF HELL SHALL NOT PREVAIL AGAINST IT” [Matthew 16:18] Ask yourself , if HELL is burning, how shall the GATES OF HELL war against the Church? Listen carefully, HELL is the EVIL EMPIRE and “GATES OF HELL” are the THREE DIMENSIONS of PRIMORDIAL DARKNESS. The FIRST GATE of HELL garrisons the etheric kingdoms of the AIR. The SECOND is on EARTH. The THIRD is in LOWER REGIONS of the EARTH. The FIRST DIMENSION of HELL is the invisible belt of PRIMITIVE DARKNESS around our world, where Satan rules as “… PRINCE OF THE POWER OF THE AIR, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience” [Ephesians 2:2] Satan sits atop a network of demons and diverse spiritual personalities appointed over nations and nationalities to do his bidding. PRINCE OF PERSIA and PRINCE OF GRECIA mentioned in Daniel 10:20 were spiritual personalities appointed to establish the rule of HELL over those two kingdoms.
3 The SECOND GATE of HELL is on EARTH, where demons and NATURAL MAN collaborate to subvert nature and establish kingdoms of darkness, as the Bible says: “And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the KINGDOMS OF THIS WORLD in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for THAT IS DELIVERED UNTO ME; and TO WHOMSOEVER I WILL I GIVE IT” [Luke 4:5-6] The present world order of governments, economics and social order divides the earth into fiefdoms and as Satan said, “TO WHOMSOEVER I WILL I GIVE IT”. False religion, occultism, pervading poverty, social decadence, oppression, terror, unending wars, etc., are manifestations of HELL, “… and THE WHOLE WORLD LIETH IN WICKEDNESS” [1 John 5:19] The UNREPENTANT SIINNER is trapped in HELL on earth, as we all were until we came to Jesus Christ and became SONS of God “… a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you OUT OF DARKNESS INTO HIS MARVELLOUS LIGHT’ [1 Peter 2:9] Let no man be in doubt, kingdoms of this world are colonies of HEL and not of Christ, as it is written: “Jesus answered, MY KINGDOM IS NOT OF THIS WORLD: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, …” [John 18:36] If it is not of Christ, it is HELL.
4. The THIRD GATE of HELL is “UNDER”, where Satan exercises “… the POWER OF DEATH, that is, the DEVIL” [Hebrews 2:14] LOWER HELL has custody of the dead and shall give them up to be judged, as it is written: “… DEATH AND HELL DELIVERED UP THE DEAD WHICH WERE IN THEM AND THEY WERE JUDGED every man according to their works.” [Revelation 20:13-14] This DIMENSION of HELL is divided into compartments. First is QUEBER, that is, GRAVE, where the body of the dead are kept, awaiting judgment or resurrection. SECOND is HADES where souls of the wicked are imprisoned until the day of judgment. THIRD is SHEOL, where the righteous WERE HELD CAPTIVE until Jesus Christ went UNDER, ”… led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also DESCENDED FIRST INTO THE LOWER PARTS OF THE EARTH?” [Ephesians 4:8-9] In Luke 16:20, Lazarus was in SHEOL, with Abraham, who also was a captive of DEATH until the “… GRAVES WERE OPENED; and many BODIES OF SAINTS WHICH SLEPT AROSE, And came out of the graves AFTER HIS RESURRECTION, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many” [Matthew 27:52-53] The rich man was in HADES, in “TORMENTS”; INFLAMED of his evil passions and surrounded by hordes of wicked souls.
5. Beloved, everything required for our SALVATION and TRANSLATION are in the Bible and you have no reason to listen to those who preach Christ with doctrines received from HELL. When Paul visited PARADISE, he reported hearing “… unspeakable words, which IT IS NOT LAWFUL FOR A MAN TO UTTER” [2 Corinthians 12:4] If Paul said it was “UNSPEAKABLE” why do you celebrate those who claim to have visited HELL to bring a message. Abraham told the rich man thus, “… They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them” [Luke 16:29] You and I have the Bible, let us hold fast to the REVEALED WORD until the appearance of Jesus Christ and we shall not be caught in the snares of HELL, amen
