Perimeno and Prophecy

"Perimeno" has written concerning the book of Revelation, that "some prophecies are important to understand,
and some are not".
What does the Bible say?
The apostle John was told, "Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book, because the time is near." (Rev.22:10).
We are told why the scroll of Revelation needs to be understood...
"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.
Because you have rejected knowledge,
I also will reject you from being priest for Me;
Because you have forgotten the law of your God,
I also will forget your children."  Hosea 4:6

Any priest that rejects his job of gaining knowledge,
and shining that lamp of understanding for others (Mal.2:7; Matt.5:14; 1Pet.2:9; Matt.10:20),
will be rejected from future Kingdom service (Luke16:10; 8:18).

Are some of the prophecies in Revelation, not important to understand?
Jesus begins that scroll....
"The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His servants—things which must shortly take place.... Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near."   Rev.1:1,3
"Behold, I am coming soon! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy in this book." Rev.22:7
"I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book:.....if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book."   Rev.22:18,19

Just because Perimeno has not been graced with full understanding of Revelation, should he take the liberty to diminish the importance of Christ's words, to those for whom Perimeno preaches?
Should anyone of us dare to weigh the importance of God's Words, against our own comprehension?
Should a Chosen Priest publicly depreciate divine revelation, before he even knows what it means? (Prov.18:13)

The very word "Revelation" means to "uncover" that which was formerly shrouded.
Jesus was slaughtered so that he could learn these secrets from his Father,
and pass them on to us (Rev.5:1-10; John7:16; 8:26,47; 17:7,6,8; Rev.1:1).
I personally consider these treasures, worth digging for (Matt.13:44; Prov.2:4,5; Matt.13:45,46).
Christ promised his sons, that if we beg and remain awake, we will receive (Luke11:9,13; Rev.3:20).

John was commanded to "uncover" this scroll to the 7 congregations (Rev.1:11; 22:10). The final "two witnesses" are also commanded (Rev.11:3; 6:9,11; 12:11,17; 19:10; 20:4).
We are told that our future depends upon obeying Revelation (Rev.22:7). If Perimeno wants to discount what he himself does not understand; rather than beg God for understanding and humbly consider those of the body who may have been given that insight (1Cor.12:29; Num.12:6; 1Cor.12:21);
then he is free to do so...
But he should not try to shut the door of understanding to others,
by dismissing the need to understand,
just because he deems what is hidden from him, as nonessential to all.
(Matt.5:20; 23:13)

"Happy are those conscious of their spiritual need" (hunger for understanding),
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven."    Matt.5:3
2Cor.10:4,5,6,13

  1. Sister Pearl,
    I am in agreement with you on this - We all need to continually read and meditate on the word of God and pay attention to the details as this helps to adjust our thinking so that we can speak accurate words of truth. If we don't put the words in our minds and hearts how can the holy spirit remind us at the proper times.

  2. Good day Sister Pearl

    Can you please advise if i have the right end of the stick on this statement you made above:- John was commanded to "uncover" this scroll to the 7 congregations (Rev.1:11). The final "two witnesses" are also commanded (Rev.11:3)?"

    are the final two witnesses made up of the prophets or are those prophets part of the two witnesses who are given the gift to prophesy?

    Thanks
    Modise

  3. Dear Sister,

    Does not one who makes such a statement realize that they are suggesting that Jehovah makes useless, unnecessary utterings?

    May Godly fear recall such one to his/her senses. We are in no position to "cherry pick" among the prophecies or to be determining their value!

  4. I seem to recall that his reasoning is that after all things are fulfilled, Jehovah will be able to point to those prophecies which we did not understand, and in essence say, "See? Didn't I know what would happen ahead of time?". I personally don't believe that Jehovah speaks only to brandish His perceptive superiority over us, but that His purpose is to establish Truth and salvation. He views daily the corruption of His beloved creation. The flavor of scripture tells us that He is more concerned with correcting it's devastated condition than his own pride.
    While Jehovah surely deserves all glory and honor; He is humble and merciful. I am deeply concerned about the thousands who take in the teachings of Perimeno. His rationalizations are convincing, but are not sourced in scripture. It causes me anguish when I take in all the error confronting the sheep. Even those who escape the Watchtower have awaiting them outside... more spiritual nets, snares and poison. It is a pity that the individual anointed still remain in confusion (Babylon) and the isolation that results from each having a proud sense of doctrinal superiority.
    We all have some truth to various degrees. We all have limitations. The order of the Body of Christ is described plainly in scripture. The directive to come together is plain. The promise of Holy Spirit is given for those who obey both.
    Until the brave and humble obey Christ's clear request, the anointed will continue to be guilty of misleading the sheep to greater or lesser degrees, in spite of their sincere intentions.
    It will take great humility and love for each anointed one to "become foolish", by allowing only scripture and spirit to readjust their perceptions. But by each of us showing such subjection, while we iron out error together; we will please our Master, finish our training, and welcome our King.
    There is much work to do...
    not only among those outside the camp, but the witness which yet needs to be given to all "Israel" still captive.
    Those anointed who remain proud and stubborn, will not remain standing before Christ's inspection,
    despite any good work they think they have accomplished.
    Thank you both for your comments.
