Ark of the Covenant Discovery, Part 10 of 10



And today, the people who called themselves by His Name are about to face the greatest crisis the world has ever encountered.  This may seem hard to believe in this age when we no longer must worship in hiding or fear persecution.  A plan has been set into action for all churches to unite on common points of doctrine.  All the suffering and persecution of God's people who fought to maintain the purity of God's doctrine through the ages is about to come to naught.  Day after day the TV features various religious leaders speaking of how this unity will accomplish God's work, when in fact, it will accomplish a work against God.

Some pagan practices and doctrines that swiftly crept into the Christian faith soon after Christ's time still dominate Apostate Christianity even though the purity of the faith was restored to some degree in many churches over the last few centuries.  It was in this country, the United States of America, that the true purity of the faith was given the chance to grow and thrive.  It was this country that would be uppermost in sending missionaries to the world to complete the spreading of the gospel.  But now, just as the work is about to be finished, the churches that once fought so hard to remain free of the influence of Apostate Christianity are about to join hands with it.

The reasoning of those who are fighting for this unity is that there is strength in numbers. They say, "Are not we all God's children? Can we not strengthen our position in the world by unifying?" Let's think a moment about these questions.  Do we honestly believe that just because someone claims to be a "true believer" that proves they ARE, when they teach doctrines that are contrary to the Word of God? Read carefully the warnings:

    MATT 7:15  Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?... 21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

    1 JOHN 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

We should all be aware that God does NOT force Himself on any man. But Satan, on the other hand, will stop at nothing to accomplish his purposes. What will happen when all of Christianity is unified?  Will the good rub off on the bad?  Are we in danger of being deceived by these false teachers?  What happens if we are?


    JER 5:30 A wonderful and horrible thing is committed in the land; 31 The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?

Being led astray by false teachers is NOT excusable by God, for He has continually warned us. Paul knew it would come:

    ACTS 20:29 For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. 30 Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.

The greatest danger we face is NOT from the unbeliever, but those who claim to be believers and teach false doctrine:

    ROMANS 16:17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and AVOID THEM.18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.

    ISAIAH 8:20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak NOT according to this word, it is because there is NO light in them.

is it really so dangerous for all the churches to work together?  My friend, there is NO greater danger.  It is easy to recognize those who make no claim to believe; but there is one who knows the Bible far better than any human alive, and it is those who are led of him (Satan) that can appear to be the most godly ON THE SURFACE, while introducing their lies, cleverly intermingled with the Word of God:

    2 COR 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

    COL 2:4 And this I say, lest any man should beguile you with enticing words... 6 As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:... 8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

    MATT 15:9  But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men

To follow any man - teacher, preacher, father, mother, etc.- is wrong.  We follow only one, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  We do NOT unite with those we know to have corrupt beliefs, even though we may share some common beliefs.

    PSALMS 4:3 But know that the LORD hath set apart him that is godly for himself: the LORD will hear when I call unto him.

Before He died, Christ carefully explained the transition from the "old covenant" to the "new covenant"- any and all changes were explained and foretold by Him.  He delivered the doctrine to man Himself, and then the time came when He ascended to Heaven, to the right side of His Father.  From that moment on, there would be NO changes made in the faith that He had personally delivered. Yet, very, VERY soon there began to creep into the body of believers heresies and false teachings.  The attempt to popularize Christianity led to the transference of pagan traditions into the practices of the Christian church.  This continued until the true faith was almost unrecognizable in those churches.  Those of the true faith were once again forced to hide; they suffered the greatest persecution NOT at the hands of pagans, but at the hands of those who had perverted the faith.

Eternal Life- A Free Gift

Many are of the belief that since the gift of eternal life is free, we nothing to do but merely ask.  It would not be a covenant if this were the case, as a covenant is an agreement between two parties with stipulations which both sides must meet. Eternal life is a free gift because we can do absolutely nothing to earn it. But we must cooperate with God in our own salvation, and this requires that we study His Word and KNOW what is His truth and what is the doctrine of men.  We CANNOT compromise after the great sacrifice that has been made on our behalf.

The plan has been set into action to undo the work of those who fought so fiercely for the preservation and restoration of the true faith.  The plan is what some have referred to as a one world religion, but it is actually a plan for all the churches to unite under common points of doctrine, for the purpose of spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ. But this "unity", which WILL in some form come to pass, will ultimately NOT revolve around common points of doctrine, but instead it will involve COMPROMISING THE TRUTH.  To the masses of believers who have remained in ignorance of true Biblical teachings, and have taught instead the theories of men, they will think this new-found unity of the church is of God.  Under the guise of godliness, they will see this compromise as the answer to the vast problems that have come upon the world.

But like a serpent slowly slithering in the grass, undetectable to the eye, the true character of this unified church will begin to unfold.  The little compromises made by all of the churches in the beginning will soon be met with bigger and more radical compromises.  the ball will already be rolling and none will be able to back out. Then suddenly, the serpent strikes as liberty of conscience will be no more.  Religious laws will be issued which, although seemingly good and moral, will NOT agree with the Ten Commandments spoken by God from Mt. Sinai, and written with His own finger.

Those who accept this unified apostate church's version of God's law and comply with it, receive the mark of the beast in their forehead, which is symbolic of their rejection of God's Law, and endorsing the laws of men. Those who willingly comply with it, although recognizing that it is opposed to God's Law, receive this invisible mark in their hand, which symbolizes their knowing disobedience to God's Law in order to avoid persecution. But those who comply with God's Law and reject this altered version, do NOT receive this mark, which simply means they are considered by civil authorities to be civil lawbreakers. They do receive though, the seal of God.  There have been those in the past to those who refused to compromise their faith and were tested greatly, and it WILL happen again.  They cannot buy or sell, unless they are in compliance with the civil law that violates God's Law. 

God's people are those who cannot buy nor sell (Rev. 13). But the rest of the world looks at this group as they looked at Christ and jeered, "If you're the Son of God, SAVE yourself! Come down off of that cross!"

This is an event of world-wide extent which will encompass the countries of the globe before it is over. Right now, the governments of the world are in league to regulate peace efforts, and environmental and trading practices.  But behind the scenes, the foundation is already laid for the presenting of a set of universal spiritual laws.  And it is now that the last call is going out:

    REV 18:2 ...Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. 3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.4.... come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

The Tables of Stone with the Ten Commandments

We believe that when the time comes that the spiritual laws are being debated and about to become the law of the land, the Tables of Stone written by God's Own Finger will come out and be a witness to the true Law that He spoke from His own lips at Mt. Sinai:

    PSALMS 89:34  My covenant will I not break, NOR ALTER THE THING THAT IS GONE OUT OF MY LIPS.

Just as Cain's offering was rejected by God because it was not what He required, so too will men be rejected who choose to honor a law that is OPPOSED to what God requires. Then, the fury of Cain toward Abel when his sacrifice was rejected will again be manifest in the fury of those who reject God's Laws toward those who accept it. Does this sound too incredible to be true? You don't have to believe me- just watch and wait.

The Events at Calvary

    ISA 45:8 Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together;...

The earth at the foot of the cross opened during the earthquake at the moment of Christ's death (Mat. 27:50-51). Then:

    JOHN 19:34 ...one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.

Just as Daniel had prophesied, His Blood then flowed down through the freshly opened rock, falling upon the Mercy Seat- the central object of the Most Holy Place and the literal earthly throne of His Father:

    DANIEL  9:24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people, and upon thy holy city, to... make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting RIGHTEOUSNESS,... and to ANOINT THE MOST HOLY.

The prophecy of Isaiah 45:8, above, was then fulfilled- "salvation" and the way for all mankind to obtain the "righteousness" of Christ did "spring up together" after "the earth opened" and His offering of His Own Blood was accepted by His Father.

    1 JOHN 5:8 And there are three that bear witness in the earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood:...

In an instant, death was defeated by the greatest sacrifice in all eternity.  Dare we ever- for even an instant- lose sight of what has been done for us?  I pray not.

And lest we do, we are reminded by the prophet, Habakkuk, who saw the future coming of the Savior in the heavens, that He STILL bears the mark of the spear in His side from which flowed His Precious Blood:

    HAB 3:4 And his brightness was as the light; he had BRIGHT BEAMS coming OUT OF HIS SIDE: and THERE was the HIDING OF HIS POWER..... (Marginal reading).
