The fulfillment of the Word against the church of Tyrus
33 And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days.
34 Now when they shall fall, they shall be holpen with a little help: but many shall cleave to them with flatteries.
35 And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white, even to the time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed.
36 And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.
37 Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.
38 But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.
39 Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain.
Since a few days my heart has been burning like David's heart burnt when he heard Goliath speak against his God and against God's people. In India especially in Mumbai the Catholic Church has called a champion from their faith who claims to have been Believer before (but could not find a good Church!) so went to a Catholic Church and now goes about preaching it as the true Church.
I have been wanting since a few days to go and meet this man and ask him to name me even 5 things good about the traditions or beliefs this church, for everything about it is infected with deceit and mischief. I do not want to encounter him in the public at his 2 days workshop which I decided to attend tomorrow but wanted to meet him in private.
The Lord gave me a Word yesterday through a sister - Proverbs 16:32 'He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty (warrior); And he that ruleth his spirit, than he that taketh a city'. So I have been reconsidering to confront him in public to deal like David did with Goliath and get him in private like Jesus did with Saul. Personally I too prefer the second one as the Lord advised and ask you also to pray it happens. Whatever we do should glorify God and not to prove ourselves right or glorify ourselves.
Just now a few minutes before I got today's message from the Lord I received a message from a Catholic brother who sent me an invitation to attend Steve Ray's workshop. In his mail some of the points he wrote as to why this church is the Church of God, is because it survived 2000 years. What he says is true that God's hand is there in the survival of this church since many years and this was explained through Daniel as to why God allowed this to happen.
It is written that the people who had insight of the Truth were allowed to be crushed by this church so that in due time a refined lot will arise. The ruler(s) of this church (Popes-who held a kingly title for many years) were and are allowed to blasphemy God and mislead the hard in hearts to a foreign god.
Since 1600AD as written in scriptures God has been started slowly to refine His people and the time is at hand that soon He will sink the ships (commerce) of this church which would be like piercing the belly of the crocodile (leviathan).
Almost 15 to 20 percent of the Bible talks about this church of Tyrus in Hebrew and in Greek Peter and how the piercing serpent (dragon) and the crooked serpent (beast) deceive people using the name of Christ.
The founders of the Methodist Church, Pentecostal Church, Lutheran Church etc. wrote and preached about this deceit but later the people with the misunderstanding of rapture chose to ignore this danger thinking that they will not be effected by it. If God gave so much importance in His instructions Book to warn us, we need to take note of it and not ignore.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord, since long the blood of your saints has been crying for revenge. In your wisdom You allowed your people to be tempted by the leviathan so that only the sheep will hear your voice and come to You, that they will grow Fruit and enter into their eternal home. Lord, we pray you guide your elected ones in this season according to your Word so that your true glorious Church be seen among your people...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.
[ Reference Scripture ]
1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:
2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.
3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.
6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days [it was exactly after 1260 years from the Pope was crowned King that the real Church started coming back - the protestant movement].
7 After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns.
8 I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.
9 I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire.
8 Therefore the he goat waxed very great: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and for it came up four notable ones toward the four winds of heaven.
9 And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land.
10 And it waxed great, even to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and of the stars to the ground, and stamped upon them.
11 Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was cast down.
12 And an host was given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of transgression, and it cast down the truth to the ground; and it practised, and prospered.
13 Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot?
14 And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.
1 The word of Jehovah came again unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyre, Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Because thy heart is lifted up, and thou hast said, I am a god, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas; yet thou art man, and not God, though thou didst set thy heart as the heart of God; -
3 behold, thou art wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that is hidden from thee;
4 by thy wisdom and by thine understanding thou hast gotten thee riches, and hast gotten gold and silver into thy treasures;
5 by thy great wisdom and by thy traffic hast thou increased thy riches, and thy heart is lifted up because of thy riches; -
6 therefore thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Because thou hast set thy heart as the heart of God,
7 therefore, behold, I will bring strangers upon thee, the terrible of the nations; and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of thy wisdom, and they shall defile thy brightness.
8 They shall bring thee down to the pit; and thou shalt die the death of them that are slain, in the heart of the seas.
9 Wilt thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I am God? but thou art man, and not God, in the hand of him that woundeth thee.
10 Thou shalt die the death of the uncircumcised by the hand of strangers: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord Jehovah.
