From the Four Winds

A website was recommended to me. It consists of others who have left the apostate City to provide spiritual provisions in the wilderness. But there is a problem. They have not obeyed Christ's command, at Luke17:30,31,32. Jesus there was not speaking of physical possessions. He was speaking of "taking with you" spiritual treasures....beliefs and doctrines. He knew that a powerfully deceiving apostasy would be rife in the time of the end (1Tim.4:1; Rev.16:13; Matt.7:15; 24:24,25; Mark13:5). He knew we would need to cleanse ourselves of those false doctrines (Mal.3:3; Rev.3:18,19); and if we were to be among the final "two witnesses" of truth (Rev.14:5; 11:3,4) we would have to leave those demonic expressions behind (1Cor.10:21; 2Cor.6:17; 10:5,4). We can not take them along to the gathering of the eagles (Luke17:30,31,32,37; Mat.25:10)
http://www.kingdomherald.ro/beliefs/

I contacted the website, and this is what I wrote:

Your stated beliefs about the little flock, great crowd, and other sheep; as well as the 1914 doctrine, have been taken with you from the apostate City, just as Lot's wife looked back (Luke17:31,32). Please consider what Holy Spirit has revealed concerning these false doctrines. The Gentiles are still ruling, not only in Satan's world, but also in God's Temple (Matt.24:15,16; Rev.11:2). The "labor pains"/"pangs of distress"/signs of the end; come, not after the birth of the Kingdom, but before the birth. Labor pains lead to birth, not birth to pains (Mark13:8; Matt.24:8; Rev.12:2). Satan's world is not giving birth to the Kingdom, the "woman" is. Therefore, the "pangs of distress" are with her, not with Satan's counterfeit signs.
Please consider your refinement, and buy the gold Christ is now offering. It is time to wake up, and get your lamp IN ORDER (Matt.25:6,7). Do not "buy" from those who "sell"!!! (Matt.25:9; Rev.13:17)
I will give you links to the scriptural articles, which PROVE that the kingdom did not arrive in 1914, that the labor pains are not within Satan's world (deceptive diversion) but are with Jerusalem above (Gal.4:26; Rev.12:2); ...that the "little flock" were Jewish chosen ones, and the "other sheep" were the Gentile chosen ones to follow, making one anointed flock. The Great Crowd are the remnant of anointed, who come through the time of the end, and Satan's greatest test. They are the final part of God's Temple priesthood...the capstone of Zech.4:7,8,9 at the appearance of the final "two witnesses" (Zech.4:7,11,14; Rev.11:4,3). I was chosen to belong to the Body of Christ, in which there is neither male nor female (Gal.3:28; 1Cor.12:12,28,27) as a prophet (Num.12:6). Please, I beg you to join the forces of truth! (Rev.19:11,14,9; 2Cor.5:20) Please contact me. Other anointed are gathering also, and partaking together, just as we have been directed (1Cor.11:33).

Warning Letter

Dear Pearl,
I have been working on my disassociation letter and i was hoping that when I'm done (later today or tomorrow), you can review it. I realize that you're super busy too, so if you don't have the time, i understand.
I really enjoy reading your blog as i continue to learn so much; i only wish i had more time to comment!
Hope all is well. I often pray to Jah to keep you going so that you can continue to do the vital work he has appointed you to do!
____________________________________________________

MY REPLY:

I am glad you let me know about the letter you are planning. How this is handled is important.
We do not want to disassociate ourselves, anymore than the prophets in Israel wanted to leave Israel and not give them God's warning.
We want to send a letter to everyone we know, about the truth that can save, while we are still able to approach them. If you do this, you won't have to worry about being separated from them. Just as prophesied, they will disfellowship you for not worshiping the organization and it's lying doctrines.
See Rev.13:15-17:
"He (GB/"Wormwood"/false prophet) was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast (Image of "Gentile" Organization as spirit-directed priests) should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 
He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast (Man of Lawlessness), or the number of his name."

This will be fulfilled in your case, if you give everyone the proper warning of truth.
  We as "witnesses", previously learned and believed that we must do field service... even informal witnessing whenever possible.
What you now know is the real "good news" of salvation....the real warning of God's impending judgment!
Should we be any less faithful and diligent than these counterfeit false witnesses are?
I hope you will think about the things you are learning from the Bible...
think about where all the blind ones are heading...
and think about how you can tell them what they need to know in order to obey Christ (Matt.24:15,16; Rev.18:4)
  If you send everyone in your congregation a letter.....
          (you can get their names from the bulletin board --service groups list, etc.,
           and then get their addresses from the internet or phone book)
....you will do far better in supporting the truth, the witness that needs to be given before the end, and being removed from the Congregation for the right reason....
not because you don't care about your "brothers and sisters", but because you do care, about trying to save their lives, by doing your best to warn them.

If you do this (as you can see from Rev.13:15,16,17), you will be thrown out, just like the faithful anointed are (John16:2; Rev.11:7; 6:9) ...for loving your neighbor, telling the truth, and removing the mark of the Beast from yourself by refusing to continue worshiping it (Rev.15:2; 20:4) or let it's lies direct your faith and actions.
Christ is "the way, the truth, and the life."
Your reward will be great for confessing Christ before men (Matt.10:32,40,41,42; Luke12:8).
This will make the best use of your sacrifice. It is far better to be persecuted for doing this good work, than for walking away from the lives of those you have known, as if you don't care about them. (1Pet.3:17; 2:20; 4:19).
If you follow the Organization's protocol and let it dictate to you, how you will become separated from the Congregation; you are still letting the Beast tell you what to do and how to do it, and you are still marked on your right hand  by the Beast! 

We don't care about the Organization's "dissociation" protocol. We obey Jehovah. They just want us to go away without rocking their boat. We want to obey Jehovah by warning those who are being judged and are about to perish. We obey Jehovah, not men (Acts5:29). Our desire is not to abandon our associations (which is how the elders want it to appear). Our desire is to save as many as might listen and wake up. Do not let the Organization change that desire, into what they want you to do. The faithful are "killed"/disfellowshiped....NOT for walking away, but rather, for speaking the truth!

The scriptures confide to us that not many will heed the final warning and find life (Luke13:23,24; Matt.22:14; 7:14,21; Eze.3:7; Rev.13:8).
But we who perceive the danger to those asleep, are still obligated to sound the trumpet (Mark13:36; 1Thess.5:6; 1Cor.14:8; Joel2:1; Joel3:9,11,12; Eze.3:11,18; 2:5).

We can be grateful to God that we are awake. But before we are cut off from those we leave behind, we must attempt to wake them up as well. (Eph.4:25; 2Tim.4:2; 1Tim.4:16) Make the best use of your fleeting opportunity! (Gal.6:10) Time is running out! (1Pet.4:7; 2Pet.3:11,12; Rev.18:4)

I hope this information helps. If you would like to read such letters (the ones me and Obadiah sent all in our congregation, including all the elders), they are here:
Pearl's letter
and
Obadiah's letter

According to your request, I would be happy to help or read your draft. I am praying for you, because I know this is a difficult trial. If you need any assistance, please just let me know. (Eze.2:6)
Love,
Pearl

Is Faith Enough?

CLARIFIED

Comment I received:
What is the reward for those inside the WTBtS?
....desperate slaves, who now are engaged in the impossible task to WORK out their salvation.
....slaves being worked to death.
There are consequences for not reading and not applying John chapter 6, which shows that faith is the path to life.
--------------------------------------------------------------

MY REPLY:

The "witnesses" are false witnesses, and they slave for men (Rom.6:16; Gal.1:10). This is the visible manifestation of the Great Tribulation...Satan's means of deceiving and misleading the remnant into idolatry so that he can forestall the arrival of the kingdom, and his ousting. It is the visible manifestation of the "misleading powerful signs and portents" (2Thess.2:9,11), which Revelation compares to a "river" of lies, "coming from Satan's mouth" (Rev.12:15). "Witnesses" are slaves being worked to death, because that is what lies at the end of their crooked path...destruction (Rev.9:11; Prov.16:25; Matt.7:13).

This does not mean that works are not necessary. When Jesus speaks of life by faith, this does not exclude the works that sprout from genuine faith. Those works are compared to "fruit" (of the lips- preaching -Heb.13:15; John15:8; Rom.10:14; 2Tim.4:2). Every tree not producing fine fruit, gets cut down and thrown into the fire" (Matt.7:19). Only those doing the will of the Father, enter the kingdom (Matt.7:21). See also James2:17,20,26. The "lazy slave" who hides the gold which Christ entrusted to him to use, fails at faithfulness (Matt.25:25,30). We must be found awake with our lamp burning in order to escape the final deceptions, and be finally found standing before the Son of Man. (Luke21:36) Each slave is assigned a task (Mark13:34,36; Luke12:35).

Such works will not be accomplished without faith. A living faith will produce such works; just as a living vine will produce fruit (John15:5) or else be destroyed (Matt.7:19).

The fruits (preaching) we produce, must have as their source God's words (Matt.10:40; Luke21:14,15; John16:13). Jesus set the example in this (John7:16; 12:49; 8:28). The problem with JW's is that the source of their preaching is not Holy Spirit, the Bible, nor even the words of faithful anointed. They have been taken under a covenant of death (Isa.28:15), due to the "fall" of the anointed "star" (Rev.8:10,11; Rev.1:20) who has entered that covenant with Satan. They follow that fallen anointed leader (GB) without question; and as a consequence, come under that covenant (Rev.17:15), which is called "Babylon the Great (Rev.17:5).
(You may note that BTG is called a "mother". "Mother's" are covenants -Gal.4:24,26)
(pearl-thewoman.blogspot.com).
The "Harlot" has that mother's name (BTG) on her forehead. Just as the 144,000 are not God, just because they have God's name on their forehead (Rev.14:1; 22:4); BTG is not the harlot herself, but is the Harlot's "mother" covenant.

My point, is that JW's are not losing their lives because they perform works stemming from their faith...                                                                              
It is because their faith and works are based upon demonic expressions (Rev.16:13) that lead to destruction.
When they preach Satan's lies, they are false witnesses, and the fruit they offer others leads to death, just as sure as the fruit Satan offered Eve.
 (2Cor.11:3; Deut.32:28,29,32,33; Jer.25:29,30; Matt.24:24; Acts20:29,30; 1Tim.4:1).
Yet this is the final "machination" of Satan, in his desire to "drown the woman" (Rev.12:15; Matt.24:24,25)
(4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2013/02/earth-swallows-satans-river.html)
  (4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2013/03/wolves-in-sheeps-clothing.html)
(http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2013/04/satan-misleads-entire-inhabited-earth.html)

JW's are simply pawns of the Great Tribulation
(4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2013/05/armageddon-and-great-tribulation.html)
("The Greatest Tribulation")
Any still within the Organization who recognize the falsehoods to which "JW's" subscribe,
are directed by scripture to openly renounce such falsehoods, before those mislead
(Ps.26:4; Eph.4:25; Prov.13:20; 1Cor.15:33; 2Cor.6:17) (Luke12:8),
despite the consequences
(John16:2; Matt.10:22; Heb.13:13; Acts5:41; Isa.51:7; 1Pet.4:13).


So although John 6 focuses on the Bread from Heaven (and having faith in him), you will notice in the context, that this bread was distributed to the crowds by means of Christ's disciples. This was no small task, but required work.
John6:verse11 in the NKJV:
"And Jesus took the loaves, and when He had given thanks He distributed them to the disciples, and the disciples to those sitting down; and likewise of the fish, as much as they wanted." NKJV
(see parallel accounts: Mark6:41; Matt.14:19; Luke9:16)
Work/"labor", is also required, to do the spiritual feeding that Jesus requires of his disciples (John21:17; 1Cor.9:16; 1Tim.4:16; Matt.28:19-20).

John6:27 reads:

"Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you, because God the Father has set His seal on Him."   So, labor is involved in order for people to receive that bread.

As John6:38 says, the will of the Father needs to be done (John4:34; 5:17; 14:12).

Wait on God with Patience- How and When?

JUST FINISHED EDITING

The following addition was also added to
 "Perimeno- A Review"
-------------------------------------------------
"Perimeno" is Greek, for "Wait".
Yes, we do wait on YHWH (Psalm27:14).
But in what way? Is it while we say and do nothing?
Revelation tells us under what conditions we wait for God...

"When He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held. And they cried with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” Then a white robe was given to each of them; and it was said to them that they should wait a little while longer, until both the number of their fellow servants and their brethren, who would be killed as they were, was completed." Rev.6:9-11

We do not wait to act in faithfulness; even though this will cost us our lives that we knew 
(Mark.8:35; Matt.5:11,12; John16:2; 15:20). 
We wait for our orphaned condition afterward, to be justified by God (John14:18; Rom.8:23) after we take our stand for Truth; by giving everyone around us (including our own Congregation), a witness. Believing and obeying falsehood is wicked, and means calamity for those we know (Prov.14:12; 1John5:20; John17:3; 2Thess.2:10). It is our responsibility, to warn such ones (Eze.3:18; 2Tim.4:2), even if they do not listen (Eze.3:4,7,9,11,27) and even if it costs us our own life that we knew (Matt.10:34,35,36,37,38,39; Luke12:51,52; Rev.6:9).
Just as in the first century, fear of man may prevent you from taking a stand for the truth you know (John12:42; Prov.29:25; John7:13; 9:22; 14:6; Matt.10:33). Is this what the faithful chose to do? No. Jesus told his faithful followers that they would be thrown out, and why (Matt.10:32; John16:2; Rev.6:9; 20:4; 12:11; Mark8:35). 
Our patience comes after our faithfulness (Matt.5:11; Heb.13:13,14) and during our suffering for righteousness sake (1Pet.4:12,13,14; John16:20).
While we wait for God to rescue us from these injustices;
Let us not confuse patient endurance in fine works,
with what God views, 
as cowardice.
(Matt.25:25; Rev.21:8; 19:8; Eph.5:15,16,17; Luke12:35; 2Tim.4:2; James4:17; 1:2,3,4; 1Cor.1:7,8)

Why Jesus came to earth / Last World Power over the Chosen Ones / "Iron" and "Clay"

I have begun a Bible Study with someone who claims to have no background in "Jehovah's Witness" indoctrination. I have been asked by a few people to create lessons to teach new Bible students. Although the hour is quite late regarding the time of the end; I will post these lessons for what can be gleaned from the cited scriptures, for this teaching purpose.

I began by asking her about her present concept of God and Jesus Christ.
Her reply to me:

"God to me is the One who was before time. The One who is able to say a word and it is done, whatever that word may be as we can see in Genesis.
The One that loved mankind so much He sent His Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ to suffer for All mankind. The spotless Lamb of God. 
In the O/T animals were sacrificed for sin, N/T Jesus death was the end of all sacrifices, he took all sin onto himself. Obey onto death. 
I believe He rose from the dead. And is seated at the right hand of the Father.
At the end of the ages, Christ will return for His bride, judgement will come to All."
______________________________________________________________________

MY REPLY to her :

Your understanding of God is accurate, and is backed up by many scriptures. What you say about Jesus Christ is also true, but there is more to look at.
Jesus did not only come to earth to suffer and to provide the ransom by dying. The most important reason he came, he told us.
It is found at John18:37. In fact, that central reason, is why he was killed....
It reads:
"You are a king, then!" said Pilate. Jesus answered, "You say that I am a king. In fact, the reason I was born and came into the world is to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me." John18:37

We see there, that lovers of truth would listen to Jesus. What about those who don't love truth?
Of these Jesus said...
John8:43,37,40,42,45-47
"Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say. I know that you are Abraham's descendants. Yet you are looking for a way to kill me, because you have no room for my word. As it is, you are looking for a way to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God. ....Jesus said to them, "If God were your Father, you would love me, for I have come here from God. I have not come on my own; God sent me...Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe me! Can any of you prove me guilty of sin? If I am telling the truth, why don't you believe me? Whoever belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God."
[We are either lovers of Truth and Light from God, or we are not. If we love truth, we "belong to God". If we do not, we belong to Satan (John8:44)]

Now do you see why Jesus died? He was murdered by those who did not love truth. God knew this would happen, because this world has as it's king, Satan, the father of the lie (John8:44; 1John5:19; 2Cor.4:4). This also teaches us that ANYONE who does love truth, listens to Jesus, is from God, belongs to God, and imitates him in teaching it; will be treated the same way by those who do not love truth. Those who represent Jesus in the world (2Cor.5:20; 6:1; 2Tim.3:12; Eph.6:20), are told to expect this experience, due to the reaction and treatment by those who belong to Satan (2Tim.3:12; John15:20).

But who is it that persecutes those who teach truth? Many religious leaders teach that persecution is incited by governments. This is a lie. It is always the religious leaders themselves who incite true followers of Christ to be persecuted. The pattern is well established, that they USE others to carry through their hatred and intolerance. Not only was this true in the case of Jesus Christ, but it is the case up until the very end, as is depicted in Revelation...

In Revelation, (as in the past) religious leaders who betray God's covenant are to blame (Luke13:34; Rev.17:6; Rev.11:8; Luke12:45; Matt.23:29,30,31,33,34,35,37,38; John8:40; Rev.17:6).
How so?
Only those in Covenant with Christ are depicted as "stars"
(Rev.1:20; Phil.2:15; Dan.12:3; Matt.5:14; Heb.12:23; Eph.2:6).

The identity "Wormwood" is a "fallen star" (Rev.8:10,11; Isa.14:12; Jer.51:53; Lam.2:1; Ob.1:4,10)
and therefore, an unfaithful anointed one who is described as "great", "burning as a torch",
and able to cause the deaths of "many" (Rev.8:11).
 

...the same one to whom Satan gives the "key to the abyss"
[Rev.9:1 (the power over deception and death -Heb.2:14)].

 

We see that the first thing this unfaithful chosen one does, is unleash those now under her power (Rev.9:2,3) which is a parallel to the "two-horned beast" Rev.13:11 (Wormwood), empowering the collective Wild Beast (Rev.13:14,15).

 

The Fallen Star and two-horned Beast/False Prophet, are both parallels, to the adulterous "Harlot" riding the Beast (Rev.17:3; Hosea9:1; 1:2).
All four illustrations are about the same identities.
Harlot=two-horned False Prophet=Wormwood=Fallen Star=spiritual Jews in Covenant
Wild Beast=locust-scorpions=man of lawlessness=disgusting thing in Holy Place=spiritual Gentiles

As you can see, the unfaithful Chosen Ones use those outside that covenant who are under their influence, to do their persecuting for them (Rev.11:7; 17:3; 13:11,12,15).
But you may notice in Rev.17:3, that in the time of the end, there is a change in this arrangement (Dan.7:7,19,23; Rev.17:3) in that the Beast which the last "woman/Harlot" uses...
                               is covered with "blasphemous names".

This unfaithful fallen star and her army of Gentile counterfeit priests, are self-proclaimed as
"God's visible spirit-directed Organization" --Blasphemy! (Rev.17:3)
http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2013/02/jehovahs-genuine-mountain.html

The persecuting Beast itself is touted as being divine (Rev.13:15,7; 2Thess.2:4) right in the midst of God's Temple of anointed priests! It raises itself above God's Temple (Rev.13:7,8,15; 11:7), seizing the false divine authority the False Prophet/Fallen Star/two-horned beast, has given it (Rev.9:7,3; 13:14; 11:2; 2Thess.2:4).
So although this Wild Beast is in reality, outside God's covenant...it is depicted and empowered  by the unfaithful Harlot/False Prophet/Fallen Star, as a religious power which becomes an Idol/"Image" (Rev.13:14,8).

The false prophet/Harlot/fallen anointed star, shares her religious authority with the Beast/locust-scorpions (Rev.13:12; 19:20; 9:3,7,10), so that the Beast is empowered to persecute the faithful priest Holy Ones, for her (Rev.13:7; 2Chron.13:9; Eze.44:6,7,8,9). This Idolatrous Image of the Beast is the "disgusting thing standing in a Holy Place" that Jesus referred to, at Mark13:14; Dan.11:31; 8:11; Jer.7:30; and 2Thess.2:4. It "tramples" (persecutes) the Holy Ones right within the Temple (Rev.11:2; 2Thess.2:4) under the direction of  the Harlot/two-horned False Prophet/Wormwood/Fallen Star over the Abyss. Yet this whole arrangement, is under Satan (Rev.9:1,11; 13:2,4; Luke22:31).
(see yesterday's post)

This is why this last power is depicted as "different"... and as an alliance, in Daniel's Image (Dan.2:41,42,43; 8:24; Rev.13:12; 19:20; 17:3).



"The metals contained within the Image of Dan.ch.2, are Satan's powers outside the realm of God's Chosen people. The dominions depicted within that image are the ones who have persecuted God's covenant people. Yet the final persecutors, are depicted as a dual power...."Iron", and "Clay". That power has mixed within it "mankind"/"clay" (Dan.2:33,43). That clay represent those IN COVENANT with God/Chosen Ones, slated to be righteous heirs of the earth (2Cor.4:7; Isa.41:25; Ps.115:16; Ps.37:29; Rev.19:8).
It is an abomination, that instead of this clay being molded by God (Isa.64:8; 1Cor.3:9; Acts.7:48; 1Pet.2:5; Isa.43:21); it has molded itself to the iron! (Lev.20:22,23; Eze.11:12; Luke22:25,26; Matt.24:49)
The final persecutors in the Image of Daniel, will be an alliance of Gentiles (Iron) and Chosen Ones who rule (Clay). They rule like Gentiles, in defiance of Christ (Mark10:37-45; John13:34; 1John4:20; 3:15; Rev.13:15,11). Together, this alliance "tramples" the holy ones under their "feet" (Dan.8:13; Matt.7:6; Isa.63:18; Jer.12:10; Rev.11:2; Matt.24:15; Rev.13:7).
pearl-disgustingthing.blogspot.com
"Who are the 'dogs' of Matt.7:6?"
The other Chosen ones who go along with this persecution of their brothers (-failing Matt.25:42,43,44,45), are also molding themselves to the last Gentile power. (Rev.13:16)
      
As Daniel stated, their alliance will not last (John16:2) (Rev.17:16,17). Spiritual Gentiles have hearts that have not been circumcised (cleansed) by God's spirit (Eze.44:9), such as those in Covenant with God have (Rom.2:28,29). They have hearts of iron (Rev.9:9; Eze.36:26; 11:19; Zech.7:12), not of flesh (Eze.11:19,20; 36:26,25; Eph.5:26,27). These spiritual "Gentiles" will always lust for worldly power and position, and dominate those under them, with cruelty (Deut.4:20; Ec.8:9; 3:16; 4:1; 5:8; Rev.9:10; 13:15,17). Once they really see all the Harlot possesses (Lam.1:10)...perceive her filth and vulnerability...covet her power, riches, and influence...they will vie for it and take it by force, just as worldly powers always do (Rev.17:16). These are "confirmed drunkards" of worldly power, who become allies with the "Jewish" wicked steward . (Matt.24:49)
(http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2013/01/what-is-jew-what-is-gentile-answers-to.html)

             
The Harlot will experience the wrath of her own tool of persecution (Jer.13:21-22), and also come to be trampled. The very power of the abyss of death which she unleashed upon her brethren, will come to her (Isa.28:14,15,18,19). The Wild Beast is called "Wild" for a reason. It can never be tamed. So too, the Gentile powers which the Harlot, for now, exploits to her own ends
(trample-how) (the-greatest-tribulation-why).

  

That scenario is being fulfilled now. The pattern has been undergoing fulfillment since Christ, for the faithful Chosen Ones. The faithful ones in the time of the end are killed too, even if this "killing" turns out to be a symbolic death (John16:2; Rev.11:7) (symbolic-death-by-means-of-world). In the time of the end (and when Revelation is fulfilled) the Gentile tool of persecution becomes a religious Idol to God's own Covenant people (Rev.2:9; 13:6,7,8,10; Luke21:24; Dan.8:13; Isa.6:11; 63:18; Jer.12:10; Dan.12:6,7; Rev.11:2; Rom.3:10; 1:25). God's chosen priests are supposed to declare God's praise without ceasing (Isa.43:21; 1Pet.2:9), but during the first 3.5 "times" of trampling, they fail to be faithful in this (Isa.62:6; 43:21; Mal.2:7; Rev.4:8; 8:1; Isa.63:3,5; 64:7; Jer.8:6; Isa.63:4,5,6; Rev.14:20; 19:15; Isa.63:2,3; 22:5) until some repent (Rom.9:27; Rev.2:5,16,21; Joel1:13; Rev.11:3; Eze.33:11).

Worshiping an Image/Idol of their own persecutors, is different from the previous Satanic powers used for persecution (Dan.7:23). Being persecuted by a world power headed by God's fallen Chosen priests/"Clay", is also "different".
Satan has devised the greatest test ever to come upon God's Chosen people. Jesus called this final device of Satan and it's result, as the "great tribulation" (Matt.24:24-25,21-22; Luke18:26-27; 21:20-22,24; Rev.13:10,7; Dan.9:24). Satan's final deception finds success, due to the wicked steward.... the fallen star "Wormwood".... genuine anointed leaders who have become a "great lamp" in the time of the end, only to mislead and persecute (Rev.8:10-11; 9:1). With the endowment of "divinity", now visible in the Gentile Idol of persecution (Rev.13:15; 19:20; 2Thess.2:4) (2Chron.23:6; Num.3:10; 1Cor.3:16-17), we know we are in the time of Revelation's prophetic fulfillment,
and in the time of the end. (Matt.24:15,16)
Fourth Beast from sea, is "different".
Alliance of Beasts from "earth" and "sea", with Satan (Rev.16:13; 13:14,8,7).


I do not write these things to correct you, but hopefully by means of the scriptures, your understanding will expand, as to one of the central reasons why Jesus Christ came to earth.

You may wonder what Christ's mission of Truth has to do with releasing the Chosen ones from captivity to Satan's authority, or in the end, demolishing these authorities and powers....
but it is precisely by means of Truth, that both will be accomplished, by the power, and to the glory, of God. (1Cor.15:24; Heb.2:14; Luke10:19; 11:20; John16:14,33; Mark6:7; Rev.12:10,11; Rom.16:20; Gen.3:15)


I know it is deep and I am sorry for that. I know the Bible says that those who are beginning, like newborns, need milk, not meat (1Cor.3:2).
I have put meat in this post, because I knew the subject could also help those who are mature. So I tell you that anything that is hard for you, please write to me because it is my fault. Ask me anything you may need to.
Also I need to tell you that I have made many changes to it....adding scriptures and making the words clearer. I did that till I went to bed after midnight, so if you haven't read it after that, perhaps you could re-consider it.
Thanks for your good questions, and I am here anytime, for anyone's questions,
about this post or other posts. There is a "contact form" in the right hand column of this page.
Love in Christ,

Mark of the Beast



Exodus 13:15-16
"And it came to pass, when Pharaoh would hardly let us go, that the LORD slew all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both the firstborn of man, and the firstborn of beast: therefore I sacrifice to the LORD all that openeth the matrix, being males; but all the firstborn of my children I redeem. And it shall be for a token upon thine hand, and for frontlets between thine eyes: for by strength of hand the LORD brought us forth out of Egypt."

A TOKEN would be placed on their hands and foreheads, signifying God's salvation of the firstborn.
What else does this token mean, according to the Word of God?
Exodus 13:9
"And it shall be for a sign unto thee upon thine hand, and for a memorial between thine eyes, that the LORD'S law may be in thy mouth: for with a strong hand hath the LORD brought thee out of Egypt."

That symbolic token on the hand and forehead would also signify that God's Law would be remembered...always present in our heart, and then proceed from our mouth. (See Deut.6:6,8; 11:18; Luke 6:45) What our heart contained would become evident by our words (Matt.12:33,34,35) and on this basis, we would be judged (Matt.12:37,36).
  This evidence of our heart's spiritual condition, is symbolized by a spiritual identifying mark, on our hands (evident deeds/practices) and forehead (beliefs, moral code, mental disposition, spiritual perspective and perceptions -Eze.9:4). (Deut.6:6,8; Rev.13:16,17)

Here we see that "the Lord's Law", backed by God's witness when using His power to save,
was signified by the "token" God's people would accept on their forehead and hand.
This served as a token/reminder, to be in servitude to God, and to let His Law guide our mind, actions, and speech/witnessing/"mouth". (Rev.7:3; 14:1)
For, "out of the heart's abundance (Deut.6:6), the mouth speaks." (Luke6:45; Eph.4:15; 1Tim.4:16; John7:38)
Within such sacrifices (Heb.13:15), we imitate Christ (Rev.3:14; John18:37; 1:4; 4:14)(Matt.5:14; Luke12:35; Acts1:8).
(pearl-finetrees.blogspot.com)

When we read in Revelation, that God's people leave this servitude and honor for God, in order to serve and worship the Wild Beast, False Prophet, and Satan (Rev.13:4,11,12,7,8);
signified again as having their forehead and hand brand-marked by their lies instead of God's Laws...
   (666 -Rev.13:16,17,18) (Isa.44:20; Ps.144:8; Matt.15:11)
   (pearl-666.blogspot.com)
...then they are no longer obedient slaves of God and Christ (Gal.1:10) (LINK), but have become obedient slaves to an Idol/Image, becoming idolaters (Rev.13:8,7,10; Col.2:8).
This sin, also overtakes the "Holy Ones" (Rev.2:20; 13:7,10; Dan.7:21; 11:12,13,24,33,22; 8:11; Matt.24:24,25; Luke21:24; Rev.11:2; 1Cor.3:16; 2Thess.2:4)
God's people (1Pet.2:10) no longer have "the Lord's Law...in thy mouth" (Ex.13:9) and heart (Deut.6:6), but rather, "unclean inspired expressions" guide and direct them (Rev.16:13; 1Tim.4:1).

  During their slavery to the Beast, False Prophet, and Satan, God's chosen priests are breaking their covenant with God (Deut.10:8; 17:12; 18:5; 21:5; 1Cor.6:1-3; 1Pet.2:10,9; 1Chron.15:2; Rev.5:10), by ceasing their priestly service to God (with the exception of Christ - Jer.33:18; Heb.9:11,24; 8:5; 12:22-23; Eze.22:30) (Dan.8:11,13; 11:28,30; 7:25; 12:11; Rev.13:7; 11:2; Matt.5:13; Isa.51:23; Luke21:24; Rev.13:10) (Isa.62:6; Rev.8:1; Isa.56:10) (John16:13; Isa.62:1-2; 35:5-6; Rev.2:17; Heb.1:1; Rev.11:3; 10:7; 22:6).

According to Ex.13:9; Deut.11:18 and Deut.6:8;
the Bible itself interprets the meaning of Rev.13:16,17.
("666")

The Wild Beast Organization is now being given credit for salvation
(instead of God -Rev.7:10; Isa.43:11) (Ex.13:16; Deut.6:6,8) (Rev.13:16,8; Rom.1:25).
The Gentile Beast has replaced Christ as Head of the Bride Congregation (Eph.5:25; Dan.8:11; 11:31; 2Thess2:4)
due to the false prophet's endorsement of that Beast and it's idolatrous image (Rev.19:20; Rev.2:20; 8:10,11; 9:1; 13:15)
(2Thess.2:4; 2Cor.11:20; Col.2:19).
("the number of a man" -Rev.13:18; 2Thess.2:3,4)

It is the Law of the Beast, whose "image"/"Idol" has been deified by the false prophet, from which the people seek
salvation, knowledge, guidance, and doctrine to teach, rather than from God (Matt.4:4; John17:17; 2Tim.3:16,17)
through his Chosen priests (Mal.2:7; Rev.5:10; 2Cor.5:20; 13:3; 1John4:1; Matt.10:20; 1Cor.4:1).
  This is the meaning of being marked on the forehead and hand, by the lies of the Beast (666) (Rev.13:16; Rom.1:25),
rather than by the Truth of God (Deut.6,8; Rev.7:3; 14:1; 22:4) (John 17:17; 12:48).

 Rev.13:16,4,8 
Ex.13:9; Deut.6:6,8; Rev.7:3; 14:1; 22:4

Who do you credit for your salvation?
Whose teachings to you obey?
Who do you direct your Bible students to?
To an organization of fallible men... or to the Word of God?
(Ps.146:3; 118:8; Isa.2:22) -- (Rev.13:8)

Matt.25:32,33,45,46
How do you treat the "least" of Christ's faithful brothers and Chosen priests,
who care not for the approval of men
(Gal.1:10; John5:44; Rom.2:28,29; Acts5:29; John16:2; Matt.5:11)....
   The way Jesus directs you to treat them (Matt.25:45,46,40; Luke10:16),
   or the way the Organization directs you to treat them after they are cast out?
(John16:2; Matt.10:22; 24:9; Rev.11:3,7-10; Heb.13:13; Isa.66:2,5; Mark 8:35; Rev.6:9-11)
          (Because they disagree with the wicked steward (Luke12:42,45; Rev.17:6),
           the idolization of the Organization (Rev.13:8,7; Rom.1:25),
           the nullifying of God's Word
           (Rev.13:11; 1Tim.4:1; Rev.16:13-16; 20:7-8; 12:15,17; Dan.8:12),
           and believe they must serve God and His truth alone.
           --Matt.4:10; Dan.11:32)

2Cor.11:4,20,12-15; Rev.2:20; 13:15-16

As an addition to the last post below, about who is to blame for the deaths of the wicked;
we can also use today's cited scripture for the previous lesson...
Ex.13:15 states that "the Lord Slew all the firstborn in the land of Egypt".
Now let's check on the details...
Ex.12:23; Heb.11:28
We see again that it was by His giving Satan permission, that God slew the firstborn of Egypt,
and protected the firstborn of Israel from the destroyer. (Who is the Destroyer?)
God is ascribed the destruction of the wicked, only because Almighty God permits Satan to destroy. Satan is the destroying murderer (Rev.9:11; John8:44; 10:10; Isa.33:1) (Job 1:6,8-9,11-12)(LINK).
The "mother" "Covenant with Death" ["Babylon the Great"], is not an agreement with God, but with Satan. (Isa.28:15,18; Rev.9:1,11; Rev.17:5 [Gal.4:26,24])
pearl-revelation9.blogspot.com
God does not need to execute anyone. Everyone under Satan's authority, is already dying (Gen.2:17; 1Cor.15:22). God has surrendered Creation to corruption/destruction/Satan (Rom.8:20,21,22,25). If God judges and condemns us, we belong to sin and death (Rom.5:12).
God owes the giving of His Spirit and endless life, to no sinful man. Spirit and Life come through Christ....to those who learn his way, truth, and life, and obey it (John5:21,22; 1Cor.15:45; John8:51; Matt.25:46). (LINK)
Those who receive this grace of God to be born again as spirit, and betray it, enter into the second death...
an irreversible condemnation. Even so, their actual physical and spiritual deaths, are by means of their murderous father of choice, Satan;
and by means of their Covenant "Mother" of choice, "Babylon the Great".

Who is to Blame?


Good morning Pearl,
 As soon as I tell myself I will not pester you, a question arises.  I have been reading "Wolves in Sheep Covering"
(http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2013/03/wolves-in-sheeps-clothing.html.)
Within that post, you said, "All those at peace, while following the powerful Wild Beast are in darkness.  They do not know where they are going." (Prov.4:19; John12:35)

Among the scriptures sited is 2 Thes. 2:10,11.   :...."they perish because they refuse to love the truth and so be saved.  For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie."  NIV

"God sends upon them, therefore, the full force of evil’s delusion, so that they put their faith in an utter fraud and meet the inevitable judgment of all who have refused to believe the truth and who have made evil their play-fellow."  Phillips

This is a little confusing to me.  God gives warning, but he is also sending (maybe allowing?) delusion?  This sounds like insult to injury.
___________________________________________________________

My Reply:

This is a good question which answer I have often reflected on, but no one asked the question before :)
The answer is important, because in giving it, we support what Christ said we should all be praying for ....(Let your name be held as holy) (Matt.6:9).

With all the evil deceptions and confusion rife in the time of the end; we need to be able to know the difference between what God directly causes, what He allows, and why he allows it.
We don't want to get God's work mixed up with Satan's work, nor ascribe anything evil to God's name.

Lets first check in on Job 1:11 (Satan speaking to God)....
"But now, stretch out Your hand and touch all that he has, and he will surely curse You to Your face!”

Doesn't it sound like Satan is asking Jehovah to do the hurting?
But what was the reality?
The Bible tells, us at Job 1:12:
"And the Lord said to Satan, “Behold, all that he has is in your power; only do not lay a hand on his person.”   So Satan went out from the presence of the Lord."

When we compare these two verses, they teaches us a pattern for many scriptures.
They teach us four things...
1. When evil befalls any of us, it is never caused by God. (James1:13)
2. When Satan presents judicial basis to test those who have found favor with God,
    (or, righteous basis to execute the wicked), God allows it.
    (Job 1:12; Luke22:31,32; Matt.5:10; James1:12; 5:11; 1Pet.2:19; 3:14; Matt.4:1;
     John14:30; Rev.6:9; 12:10,11; 2Tim.3:12; Gen.3:4,5)
3. When God allows the faithful to be tested (by Satan), God limits that test
    to what we can endure, as well as the minimum amount of testing necessary
    to satisfy justice, to answer Satan's accusations, and to prove our loyalty.
    (Job 1:12 C; James1:3; 1Cor.10:13; 1:8; Matt.6:13; 2Pet.2:9; Matt.27:46; Heb.4:15)
4. God does not owe the wicked protection from Satan. We all have free will,
    and when God mercifully warns us of danger, His obligation to us is fulfilled.
    (Gen.3:3; Deut.30:15,16,17,18,19; Isa.48:18; Deut.5:29; Rom.8:13; 6:23; 1John2:6)
    Our desires and actions then establish who we have chosen to obey and imitate...
    God or Satan. The one whom we choose becomes our spiritual father (Rom.8:14; John8:44).
    If we choose Satan, we are then under his domination (Isa.42:24; John17:12; 6:70; 1Tim.1:20)
    God respects our choice (good or bad); because to do so, is according to His righteous justice.
    We will "reap" according to our own choice. (Gen.3:17,19; Rev.20:4; Gal.6:7)

God alone is Almighty. Therefore nothing can take place without His allowing it. Satan knows that he needs God's allowance in order to act. Satan also knows that God is faithful to His own justice. Satan must constrain his machinations and goals; within what God's justice allows. Satan must find a judicial basis to act on his desires and purpose. Satan uses God's own righteous standards, to gain the liberty to pressure, tempt, and persecute the faithful, hoping that he can cause his foes to compromise and so, become condemned by God. By tempting the immature, weak, or lukewarm  into divine condemnation, Satan acquires dominion over the one who lost their integrity.
Satan hopes that this latitude to test those being shown favor by God, will allow him to
successfully test the kingdom heirs,
gain their compromise,
and buy his world dominion, more time.

In most scriptural  incidents where God does allow Satan to test those in God's favor, it is depicted as God doing the testing, or even as God destroying the wicked. This is only because, according to God's righteous justice; God allows it. He justly allows it, because the wicked desires of the unfaithful, choose their own judgment. This is why Jesus said that those who are under Satan's darkness, "do not know where they are going". (John12:35) They have chosen the darkness for a reason (John3:19,20), unaware of what lies ahead.

This pattern found precedent and was clearly demonstrated by the events which took place with Adam, Noah, Lot, Christ, and many other Bible examples.
The day is coming however, where Satan will run dry of accusations toward those who endure faithfully. That is the day he will finally lose all authority and power. (Rev.12:10,11; Prov.27:11; Rom.16:20)

We spoke of the things which Satan knows....
*the lethal condition and consequences of following the crooked path of destruction,
  upon which we were all born.
*God's justice in allowing Satan to test us.
*God's justice in allowing Satan to dominate and execute the unfaithful who fail.
*Satan's domination means spiritual blindness and death for those who keep him as father.
  (Matt.23:33)

We also need to know these things, and keep them in mind! That awareness means our life!
When the Bible describes God as "causing" people to be overcome by deception or death, it is because He is allowing Satan to do this (2Cor.4:4), because those people have chosen the side of wickedness, and unwittingly, it's King and "Angel (messenger) of destruction".

God offers Adam's descendants the path to life. If they do not take it, they will simply remain on the path to death, and remain under Satan's dominion. For those who choose to follow in Adam and Eve's footsteps, the same results await....spiritual darkness, and death.

Those who defy their sinful nature to seek favor with God, are the exception (Matt.7:14). It is for the benefit of these ones, that God does act (2Chron.16:9 A,B; Psalm18:25; 115:11; Prov.18:10; 30:5).
I hope you can appreciate how and why this is righteous on God's part...
to allow the wicked to reap the consequences of their wickedness...
and to save those who prove their love for Him.

Remember that Satan "demanded" to test any Chosen Ones (Luke22:31,32). Why? Because these are to be heirs of the planet (Ps.37:29; 2:8; Rev.5:10; Gen.12:7; Gal.3:29). Power over that planet is now occupied by Satan (1John5:19; Eph.6:12). He will not be evicted until the last of those heirs prove faithful (Rev.12:10,11; 6:11). So naturally, Satan demands to test them, so that he does not have to surrender ground to any of them, unless their integrity can not be broken.
The case of Job is recorded within the scriptures for the sake of these imperfect Chosen Ones, so that they understand their testing, and the consequence of their choice.

In the time of the end, many, many Chosen ones do fail
(Matt.22:8,14; Matt.7:21; 19:25,26; 24:24,25; 25:1,2,11,12,13,30; 1Tim.4:1; Rev.12:4; 13:7,8). The "Great Tribulation" is able to take down all but a remnant.
(Matt.24:22; Rom.9:27; Isa.10:22; Jer.44:14; Hosea1:10; Joel2:32; Rom.11:5)
This not only applied to God's peoples of the past, but also to the time of the end (Dan.12:10; Luke21:36; Rev.6:17; Isa.63:3; Jer.25:29,30; Rev14:19; Jer.13:13; 51:7; Rev.18:4).
(pearl-winepress.blogspot.com)
God's justice allows this. God knows that the sifting will not permanently harm his faithful anointed sons, just as Jesus proved faithful and was rewarded. (Rom.6:5,8; Luke22:29)

So we ask ourselves....
Is God testing the faithful, or Satan?
Satan brings the trials to bear. God, in His wisdom and justice, allows it. He will restore any loss or pain, just as he did for Job. Our suffering is temporary. (Rom.8:18; 2Cor.4:17)
 Remember that 2Thess.2:11 says that "And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie" (Eze.14:9,10). Is God teaching them lies, or is He allowing Satan to do it? Our answer is at 2Thess.2:9 : "The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders".  
Is God unjust in allowing this testing by Satan's lies?
Note 2Thess.2:10,12 : "with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved...that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness."

Are these ones trying their best to be faithful?
No. They "love the lie" ...and take prideful pleasure in the unrighteous injustices that follow from believing it. (Rev.22:15; Rom.1:25; Rev.13:8,7,9,10,15,17). Without realizing it, they have sought out Satan to be their father, not God.
Why should God protect them from Satan's deceptions, when He even allows the loyal ones to be so tested? For those whose heart really loves the truth; God will show his power and salvation from Satan's hand
(1Pet.2:9; Ps.118:27; Rev.7:9 E; Isa.9:2; Ps.103:4; 40:2,3; John1:5; Acts26:18; Matt.16:18).

Just as 2Thess.2:10 indicates,
" and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

...they could have been saved, if only their hearts loved Truth!

There is much I have not yet written about, when it comes to what God allows to befall both--
 those who prove faithful, and those who don't.
There is also the end of this world, and the deaths of all the wicked. This too will be by Satan's hand and power, not God's.
Yet God will, in all righteous justice, allow it.
[Satan is over the Abyss of Death since Eden. He will retain this authority until Jesus uses his key
 over Death and Hades, to free those held captive there. Jesus acquired that authority when he died
 faithfully, thereby conquering Satan's power over death. 
 (Heb.2:14; Rev.9:11,1) (Rev.1:18; 1John3:8)
 (pearl-leviathan.blogspot.com) (pearl-revelation9.blogspot.com)]

In all these things,
the scriptural pattern found in the account of Job, still applies.
Satan owns everyone since Eden. Only those Called to light and it's salvation, (and those who receive these faithful prophets -Matt.10:40,41,42), will be rescued from the consummation of Satan's destructive plan.
Satan has been a murderer from the beginning, and will be to the end (John8:44). Salvation is the exception. All those not saved, will perish....
not by God's hand, but by His righteous permission. Satan will destroy all his own seed/sons, under his mother covenant of death ("Babylon the Great") Rev.17:5 (pearl-thewoman.blogspot.com).
Only those who are taken under the protective tent of the New Covenant of life (Gal.4:26), will be shielded from Satan's destructive wrath.

God has the right to protect His own tested and proven sons. He also has the right to surrender and abandon all those who reject Him, His love and mercy, and His provisions for eternal life. He owes them nothing. (Matt.24:40; 2Pet.2:3; 2Thess.2:3; Rev.9:11)

When Almighty God's perfect justice allows Satan His permission to destroy his own seed,
the Bible equates this with God's decision. This is accurate. But we need to realize that God gives righteous permission to the lying murderer.
God Himself is not the liar, nor the murderer. (Psalm36:9; John10:10; Matt.6:9)

So when we read, "For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion") (2Thess.2:11)
It is because God alone is the universal Sovereign; and anything which occurs, He must allow...
just as He allowed Job to be tested BY SATAN; and the scriptures recorded it as God Himself, "stretching out His hand" (Job 1:11). God "sends" or directs these ones who have strayed from Him, to their chosen god Satan, to be overcome by the Devil's deceptive power (2Cor.4:4). That "sending" is the result of God abandoning/leaving them. Why does He leave them? Because they have left Him and the truth, first (Num.32:15; Deut.30:17,18; 2Chron.7:19,20; 15:2; 1Chron.28:9) to serve the Gentile "Wild Beast" Organization (Rev.13:15,12,7,8), the "Man of Lawlessness", who is the god enforcing the deception mentioned in your cited scripture (2Thess.2:10,11) (2Thess.2:9,3,4). That identity (Wild Beast-Man of Lawlessness-"Gentile" Organization) is not anointed, but has raised itself up above the anointed (2Thess.2:4; Rev.13:7).
("Who is the Man of Lawlessness?")

"Grieving" Holy Spirit?


Good day sister Doxsey,
Can you please help me regarding this scripture Eph 4:30 - how can we grieve the holy spirit if it is God's power? Should it not be the holy spirt but God we grieve?
I think this is a two part question: what is the holy spirit and how can we grieve it?
__________________________________________________________________

"Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace to the hearers. AND GRIEVE (Greek: lupeite -- "causing sorrow") NOT THE HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD, WHEREBY YOU ARE SEALED TO THE DAY OF REDEMPTION. Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamor, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice". Eph.4:29-31

God's power to communicate with men (Holy Spirit) can compare to us sending an email. The receiver of an email can resist that power and message, by deleting the email without reading it, or by only heeding a part of what it requests. Yet that does not diminish the power of the sender to send out more emails, nor their ability to communicate in other ways, nor their ability to send that same email to someone who will read and heed it.
Independent of an individual's choice; the full spectrum of Spirit's use and purpose by God, will see full satisfaction, AS A WHOLE.

Here is a difficult paradox to define...
There is unity (yet also separation) between the content of an email/it's message, and it's sender/author. This can compare to defining the paradox of God and His Spirit.
How a recipient treats God's message/spirit sent forth to them, effects the outcome of that spirit's work IN THE INDIVIDUAL recipient. That result is largely based upon the individual's will, not only upon God's. In this way, the power and result of Holy Spirit upon an individual, is not the same as God's direct affect, which is always successful
(Isa.40:8; 44:26; 45:23; 46:10; Jer.23:20; Eze.24:14; Amos6:11; Num.23:19; Isa.55:11).

This free-will/individual choice, causes a separation between God Himself, and His Holy Spirit.
You see, God's Will and purpose are always, fulfilled. Not necessarily so, is the purpose of God's SPIRIT at work in the individual Chosen One. This difference is one aspect of the difference between God Himself, and the Spirit He gives.
As we saw from the preceding scriptures, God can not be resisted. Holy Spirit can be resisted (Acts7:51; Isa.63:10). When it is resisted (it's purpose for which it was sent forth, rebelled against)... it is "grieved". The hope and potential good which it contained, is dashed. This divine messenger is turned away at the door. It's blessings are denied and rejected by the one who could have benefited; due to a proud, stubborn, rebellious and selfish spirit already at work within them (John8:37,38,42,43,45,44; Eph.2:2; 1Tim.4:1; Rev.16:14; 13:11,15).

Like an email, Holy Spirit is a mediation. But it is more than a mediation.
Holy Spirit is "living"......

For the Chosen Ones, Holy Spirit is at work IN THEM (Phil.2:12,13,16; 1:6,10; 1Cor.12:6; 15:10; Heb.13:21), perfecting/preparing their hearts, to be as Christ's. Holy Spirit is a tool of mediation by Christ. It has a goal and purpose. Yet, it is up to each individual Chosen One whether or not Holy Spirit reaches that goal and purpose WITHIN THEM, AND FOR THEM. (Ps.51:10; Eph.1:11; 2:10; 1Thess.4:4; John3:5; 14:23)

Clearly, there is a distinction between God, and God's spirit; just as there is a difference between us, and an email we may send. Yet God's will, mercy, and love are contained within that Spirit. That spirit is alive within those given it (Rom.8:11). Like a flame, it has it's own energy and power (1Thess.5:19) and can be dampened/grieved. It contains God's love alive within it (2Cor.1:22). It is alive within the scriptures (Eph.6:17; Heb.4:12; 1Thess.2:13). It is attributed a life of it's own, due to the power of it's affect over those who treasure it. Both God and his sons are sources of this living Holy Spirit.
Those persons/sources of spirit can be grieved when the spirit within them is displayed, offered, and then rejected.
The spirit works from within, and upon, persons. That work is inseparable from those who possess it in their heart, once they become One with spirit (When spirit is rejected and grieved, so is their heart). That matured Holy Spirit within the sealed anointed is also "grieved", when these who have spirit living within them, are caused grief (1Cor.3:16; Rom.8:9,11; Eph.2:22)
 (Eze.3:17; Acts20:28; 1Thess.5:12; 1Cor.16:16; Heb.13:7,17).

Matt.6:22; Num.31:23; Rev.3:18
Rev.19:12

The Holy Spirit did dwell within Christ (Rev.19:12; Col.2:9), as it also dwells within all sealed anointed (Eph.2:22; John14:23; Rom.8:9; 1Cor.6:17).
That is not to say that it does not dwell at all in those not yet sealed. But it's full presence within a heart depends upon it being cultivated to maturity (Luke8:18; Matt.25:3-4), just as is the case with "wheat seeds" of truth (Luke8:11,15; Matt.13:38; 11:19), and this maturity of spirit manifested by discernible deeds (Matt.7:20).
In order to become mature and have a simple eye, one must be completely guided by spirit and Truth. This requires letting go of all reliance upon worldly wisdom, including our own thoughts (1Cor.2:14; 1:27; Acts4:13; 1Cor.4:10; John16:13; 14:17; 7:18; Matt.25:4,7,8; John15:5).

What particular "message" and task does Holy Spirit bring/do for the Chosen Ones?
Truth and it's cleansing power (shown to them out of love and mercy).
(Eze.36:25,26,27; 2Cor.3:3; John16:13; 14:17; Rom.2:29; Heb.10:16; Eph.5:26)
They must be cleansed by spirit and Truth, in order to become clean vessels of Truth. (2Tim.2:20,21; 2Cor.4:6,7; 6:16; Titus 2:14; 1Pet.2:9; Matt.3:11; Num.31:23) They must choose as individuals to work in harmony with that cleansing and truth (Isa.52:11; 2Cor.6:17; Rev.18:4; 1John2:27,28; John15:4,5; 6:56; Gal.5:16) given by means of Christ (John14:6; 13:8; 1Tim.2:5; Eph.5:25-27). As the fire of holy spirit refines their hearts into pure gold (Prov.17:3; Mal.3:3; Isa.1:25; Dan.11:35; 12:10; Zech.13:9; Rev.21:18,21; 3:18), they become cleansed vessels/"golden cup" (2Tim.2:20; Eph.2:22), for God to inhabit.
This cleansing is not by means of an Organization, nor this qualification through compliance to its arrangements (2Cor.3:5,6; 4:7). Only those directly begotten by Holy Spirit, are qualified to be God's chosen priests (Rom.2:29; Col.2:11; John1:13; 1Pet.1:23; 2:9; 2Chron.23:6; Rev.5:9-10; 1John1:7; Luke22:20).
(pearl-disgustingthing.blogspot.com)
Now you may perceive the context of Eph.4:30 above, more deeply, (Eph.4:29,30,31)
and why hatred and falsehoods grieve the Spirit at work in an individual.
The Spirit's work is for love, truth, life, and sanctification to the receiver...

Remember, Jesus taught us that he needed to present the ransom to God in heaven, BEFORE the Chosen Ones could receive the Holy Spirit (John14:16,17; 16:7). This indicates a judicial basis is needed in order to receive Spirit (Heb.9:11,12,24; 4:14; 7:25; 8:2; 1John2:1). This also reveals that God does not deal directly, even with those chosen. They can not be the spiritual Temple of God's HOLY Spirit, unless they are first cleansed by Christ's blood (Rev.5:9,10; 12:11; 7:14; 1John1:7).
If this cleansing and mediation is needed to receive such communication FROM God, how much less are men of dust able to receive God Himself. He alone dwells in UNAPPROACHABLE light (1Tim.6:16; 1:17; Ps.104:2; 1John1:5; 4:12; John1:18) before which light, men would perish (Ex.33:20). God's spirit interacts with the Chosen, according to it's direction by Christ their Head.


Another illustration:
If you poured your soul into a painting or wood carving, and gave it to someone you loved...
and that person destroyed your work...
would that person be hurting your work, or you?
The whole purpose of the creation of your work, was to bring that person joy and love.
The purpose of that work would itself be grieved/saddened/sinned against.
Both the artist, and the expression of his work, would be dejected.

No one can resist God.
Yet, each has a choice to resist His spirit. Spirit may miss the goal of it's purpose in those who sin (Mark3:29). That spirit was sent forth from Love, mercy and grace. To have those things turned away, "saddens"/"grieves"/disappoints/resists... the purpose for which Spirit was sent forth (Isa.33:8; Prov.2:13; 2Pet.2:15; Jer.6:10; Acts.7:51).

If a chosen one submits to spirit as a slave; that spirit guides that one on a holy path (Jer.31:21; Isa.35:8; 11:16; 30:21; 40:3; Matt.7:14; Ps.118:20; Prov.16:17; Gal.5:16,25). If that person continues to walk that path, they leave sin behind (Eph4:21,22,23,24,25; Rom.6:6; Heb.12:1; James1:21; Col.3:9). They are "perfected" in the mature stature of Christ, and sealed as a slave of God (2Cor.7:1; Matt.5:48; 1Pet.1:15; 1John3:3; Gal.4:19; Eph.4:13,24,30).

If we were to be guided by an email, and do everything it requested; we would be a slave of the sender, even though our obedience was through the letter sent.
Being sealed, is to be redeemed (Eph.1:13; 2Cor.5:17; Rom.8:9; 2Tim.4:8; James1:12; Rev.2:10). It is to become the New Creation, capable of seeing God directly (Matt.5:8; Rev.22:4; 2Cor.5:17; Eze.36:26; Rom.6:4; Isa.43:19; Gal.6:15; Eph.4:24; 2Pet.3:13). Under the kingdom arrangement, this will occur, and after their full cleansing and adoption; the New Creation of first-born sons will hear the seven thunders of God's voice, and these priests will bring that progressive message down to the earthly creation (Rev.21:2; 22:1,2,3,17).

When we understand the distinction between God and His Spirit; we perceive why baptism requires submission to all three...
The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Matt.28:19).
We need to understand and submit to what each one represents.
The Father, through whom all things are.
The Son, who is the only path to the Father...the personification of truth, and whose example is the only path to life.
The Holy Spirit, who offers us a choice...to be guided by it during our application of Christ's model to ourselves (1Pet.2:21; Gal.4:19; Rom.8:9; John14:23; 1Cor.3:16; 6:19,20; Eph.2:22; 2Cor.6:16; Isa.1:16) or to "grieve" it, by our personal rejection of the individual purpose for which God has sent it forth to us.

God's Spirit is ever "moving" toward the realization of God's Will. Both God's Will and His Spirit will succeed. We can choose to be in harmony with that movement, becoming One with it! (John17:8,10,11,21,23,24,26; 1Cor.6:17)
When we are united with spirit, we are united with God, Christ, and all those in unity with it (Phil.2:2; John17:21-22; Eph.4:1-7,11,13).

If we choose against the work of God's Spirit, (resulting in our own "abandonment" and "destruction" --Matt.24:40; 2Pet.2:3); The loving, cleansing purpose of that spirit's grace within us, has been grieved (Eze.18:31; Zech.7:12; Heb.10:29). When this occurs, we work against God's spirit, and all those through whom it came. He in turn, will work against that resistance (Isa.63:10; Lev.26:41) so that some may be refined...but others, judged (Jer.44:4; 26:5,6; Eze.18:31; 33:11).
(What-is-worst-sin-wt-has-done.html)
(Can the Watchtower Crumble?)

This wayward condition of God's people also happens in the time of the end.
This is concerning the curse of the four horsemen of Rev.6. Some will be refined and repent due to this discipline.
Others will be judged. (This is the subject of another post.)

Thank you for your good question. I don't know that I have answered it well enough.
If not, please let me know.
Love,

A fellow anointed one wrote me today, asking if I needed any support for the current interchange with "JoshuaStone". My reply:

Thank you so much for offering John. No, it is par for the course. But you may want to know that although he denies any contact with me, we have been writing for days. One of the things he said to me in an email, was that the website (Robert King's) has "changed hands". (I think this is a slip, in his attempt to explain why I can no longer log in).
I think maybe the Org. may own it now, perhaps attempting to contain damages to their image. They may have made an agreement with Robert. (Dan.11:17,18,19)
What "JoshuaStone" started out doing, was declaring doctrines as mine, that I have never taught. Now he is quoting out of context from inside my blog, but twisting it's context. It is also being said that I am demonized. What else do we expect, when they said the same of Jesus (John8:48,49)? Jesus himself said that opposers would do this to us (Matt.10:24,25; 5:11).
Thank you just for being there,
Love,
Pearl
The anointed are at war. (pearl-sign.blogspot.com)
This is the nature of Armaggeddon.
Do we expect it to be mild, gentle, or easy?

Update to e-jw

The following update has been added to
http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2013/05/for-those-of-you-who-visit-e-jw.html

"Paul said,
"I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man; she must be quiet." (1Tim.2:12)
Who does not permit??? Is it God?
When the apostles were certain that God's spirit said something, they let us know (Acts15:28).

However, I am inclined to believe that Paul was referring to the Bible's meaning of "woman" covenants and those in them...
that these are to be silent before the Christ who teaches them (Matt.10:27; Eph.5:23,24) This is the meaning of the context of 1Tim.2:12 (1Tim.2:13,14,15; Gal.4:19; Rev.12:2; Eph.5:23,24,32) Being "kept safe through childbearing" (1Tim.2:15) is not physical, but spiritual. Also the submissive "wife" of which Paul speaks as having this spiritual protection, is not physical, but spiritual (Gal.4:19; Rev.12:2).
pearl-thewoman.blogspot.com
Do you know how many anointed ones fail in doing this,
by "speaking up" and teaching things that Christ has not given them? These usurp the headship and actual current teachings of Christ.
Paul was the watchdog of the first century, over this very "wife" (2Cor.11:2,3).
This is why he did not permit such inpropriety among the "Bride"."

Armageddon and the Great Tribulation - A Comparison?


The "Great Tribulation" (Matt.24:21 -the Greek clarifies the meaning) is a great "sifting" that tests all those who claim to worship the True God (Luke21:31; Rev.2:10; 13:10; Matt.10:22; 24:9; John16:2). It's scale and intensity will be the greatest test of hearts ever to occur to God's people, the Chosen Ones (Mark13:5; Matt.24:24,25,22; Luke13:23,24) since the beginning of Satan's world. The deceptive power Satan unleashes during that time (Rev.12:9,15; 13:2,11,7; 16:13,14; 2Thess.2:4,9,10,12), would ruin the salvation and sealing of the anointed exposed to it, unless that test was "cut short"....limited by God's intervention, on behalf of the chosen (Matt.24:22; 19:25,26; Luke13:24; Matt.7:21,14). This sorting tribulation exposes God's people to the Truth (through faithful anointed slaves bearing fruit from their lips) (John15:8,5; Heb.13:15; Rev.11:3; 6:9,11)
and Lies (through unfaithful slaves offering wormwood and rotten fruit) (Rev.8:10,11; (Rev1:20; Phil.2:15; Dan.12:3) Rev.9:1,2; Acts20:30; Matt.7:15; 24:4,5; Rev.13:11; 18:23).

God's people must choose which they will believe and obey ("forehead" and "hand" Rev.13:16).
The simultaneous presence of both offerings ("fine fruit"/truth and "rotten fruit"/lies Matt.7:20) is due to the war already being fought, between those providing truths and those releasing lies.
The WAR between Satan's seed, and the faithful in covenant with God (Gen.3:15; Rev.12:7; 9:3; 13:7; 19:11,14; 16:13,14,16) has been raging since Eden (Hosea6:7).
["woman" = covenant (pearl-thewoman.blogspot.com)]

Armageddon is the final battle of this war, ...when the last of the 144000 are sealed, due to their faithfully providing Truth (Rev.12:11; 6:9,11; 14:5; 20:4) at the cost of their lives (in imitation of Jesus'example) (Rev.12:11; 6:9; Mark8:35; Rom.6:5).
During that final battle, the unfaithful also become sealed as the wicked slave, due to their leaving God and providing "wormwood" teachings, along with their "slaughtering" of the faithful [John12:48; Rev.20:12; 1John3:12; Rev.6:9; 13:15; 11:7; 20:4; 17:6) (Rev.8:10,11; (Rev1:20; Phil.2:15; Dan.12:3) Rev.16:13,14].
(Mal.3:18; John8:44,40; 3:19; Matt.13:38; 24:48,49)

So you see...this battle between truth and lies, is what causes God's people to be exposed to both. This causes a choice...a "Tribulation"....a sifting and sorting as either loving truth
(Prov.4:6; John14:15,6; Luke10:27)
or as loving lies (2Thess.2:10,11; Rom.1:25).
This choice is manifested among the lesser anointed invited, as a choice between the Holy Spirit they were given, or "buying" "light" (2Cor.11:14) from those who "sell" (Matt.25:1,2,4,9,10; Rev.13:17).

Once this testing is completed (through all the anointed making their choice/sealed), and the final witness has been given by the faithful; God removes His protection from the whole world, and Satan goes to work as the "Destroyer". Only those who have chosen God as their Father, will be protected.

The Source of Life

I have seen from my "stats", that most readers only read long enough to read my words...
not long enough to read, meditate upon, and compare the cited scriptures to the subject at hand.
Please read the scriptures, even if you must divide the study article into separate sessions.
The scriptures referenced are the whole purpose of the article. Reading THEM is where you will learn.
My words are nothing. Learn from your Father, not me.
When reading a cited scripture, it is wise to ask yourself...
"What is this scripture saying, and how do it's words and thoughts enlighten me about this subject?"
"What Divine Truth is being revealed, and how should that affect our decisions and actions"?
"Why has Holy Spirit chosen these verses to be connected to this subject?"
"Where can I apply the meaning of this scripture?"

We will be blessed by God's spirit if we show honor to God's Word (John1:1,4,14).
God's spokesman, the "'Word' of God", is the source of all scripture, which is your light, truth, and life.
I can help guide you to it (Matt.5:14; John13:20; 2Cor.4:7; Rev.1:20)
...but I am not it.

Fire From Heaven

Fire from Heaven.... 
                              What is it?
                              What does it accomplish?
                              Who summons it?
                              Can it be falsified?
What is it?
"Fire" has been used to symbolize God's spirit and His truthful words (Jer.23:29; Heb.12:29; Ps.29:7; Rev.4:5; Deut.4:24; Ex.24:17).

That fire is not literal and physical, but spiritual (Ex.15:7; Deut.6:15). His words (Jer.23:29) were also compared to a "hammer" that "breaks stones/rocks to pieces (Rev.2:27; 12:5; Ps.2:9; 110:2; Isa.2:3; Prov.23:14; 3:12; Rev.3:19). As we see there, God can empower His servants ("Zion" -Rev.14:1), that they too can have the powers of His Word of Truth (Jer.5:14; Rev.11:3,5; Isa.24:6; Hosea 6:5; James 1:11; Jer.1:9; Heb.4:12; Rev.19:15; Luke 9:54; 12:49; John 12:48; Heb.1:7; Rev.14:18).

This symbolic "fire", compares well to physical fire. It can be used to destroy the lies of the false prophets (Hosea 6:5; Matt.24:51,50; 2Cor.10:4; 6:7; Jer.1:10; 1Tim.6:12; Matt.7:19; 13:30; 2Thess.1:8; 1Cor.3:13,15; Rev.8:5,7,8; Luke 3:17; Rev.14:16).
But "fire" can also cleanse and purify. The humble who are trained by the fire of Holy Spirit and it's Truth (Luke 3:16; Romans 12:20; Rev.3:18; Mal.3:3), can be adjusted, refined, and purified.

What does this fire accomplish?

There are only two choices for the Called and Chosen Anointed:
Remain in union with Christ, be refined, and bear fruit for salvation (John 15:5; Prov.18:20; Heb.13:15; 1Tim.4:16)
(pearl-finetrees.blogspot.com)
Or, if they leave Christ (John 15:4-5; Col.2:19), they will eventually have their self-sourced work/doctrines, (OR the rotten fruit of the false prophets whom they follow -Eze.14:10; Rev.2:23), burned up by the spirit of the truth (John 5:31; 8:54; 7:18; 15:4,6; 16:13,14) (Zech.9:4; Rev.14:10).

Once the lies we may believe and teach, are exposed and consumed by Truth (Luke 8:17; John 16:8,13-15; Rev.1:1; 22:6; 1Cor.3:13); we can either humbly be refined by that fire (Isa.48:10; Zech.13:9; Mal.3:1,2,3; Jer.9:7; Mark 9:49; 1Cor.3:13,15; 1Pet.1:7; Rev.15:2; John 15:3; Matt.7:24)
OR, suffer eventual destruction (Matt.3:12; 13:40; 25:41; 7:26; Luke 3:9; 2Thess.1:8; Rev.20:9,10,15; 21:8).
                                                          -----------------------
We learn in God's Word that this battle of condemnation by fire, continues and culminates in the time of the end, by both genuine fire/Holy Spirit (truthful light), and by counterfeit fire/Demonic spirit (deceptive darkness --Rev.16:13)......
There is a true condemnation occurring (2Pet.3:7,12; Rev.11:5; 16:8; 18:8), and a false condemnation occurring (James 3:5,6; Rev.13:13,15; 11:7), [and also a righteous judgment done by hypocrites, which occurs (Rev.17:16) due to God's will (Rev.17:17)]. Remember, the entire book of Revelation is symbolic. So is the "fire" mentioned within that book. If we remember this, we can gain accurate understanding (1Cor.2:10,12,13,14; Eph.3:3,4; Luke 12:49; Mal.3:2; 2Pet.3:12).

For those consumed by the spiritual fire of Truth, and the divine judgment which results, God's protection has been removed. They are then subject to blindness and death, from which results, they will not escape.

This brings us to
Who are those who have been given authority to summon "fire from heaven"?
(Luke 9:54) (Eph.2:6; 1:3; 4:8,7,11; 2Pet.3:13; Heb.12:22-23; Phil.3:20).
There were three historical persons in the Bible who were able to summon  fire to come down from heaven.



These were Moses, Elijah, and Satan (2Kings1:12,14; 1Kings18:38; Num.16:11,28,35; Job 1:6,8,12,16). Power over fire from heaven, manifested that someone was being used for divine purpose. It also symbolizes that someone has received divine permission, empowerment, and authority, to condemn and destroy (Rev.20:9; 14:18; Eze.38:9,16,22; Luke 9:54; John2 0:23). When this sign is expressed within Revelation, that is it's meaning.  
            [note: Fire also came from heaven when Solomon
             inaugurated the Temple, displaying God's accord with it's purpose.
                                   (2Chron.6:41,42; 7:1,2,3,4)]

Knowing these facts is a very important lesson; because the final "two witnesses" are associated in vision by Jesus himself, as represented by these same two prophets...Moses and Elijah (Mark 9:2,1,3,4). These also are personified in the "two witnesses" in the time of the end (Rev.11:3,4; Matt.17:11; Acts 3:21).

Like Elijah (and John the Baptist -Matt.17:12,13), they prepare God's people through repentance.
Like Moses, they also have power over plagues (Rev.11:6) and are assigned to release God's Chosen ones from captivity to the Wild Beast (Rev.13:7,10; 9:3,4,14), and the symbolic "City" (Egypt) within which, they are killed (Rev.11:7-8; 17:18,6).
                   
What did Moses and Elijah use the "fire from heaven" for ?
That fire demonstrated God's judgment and disapproval upon his enemies,
and his favor upon Moses and Elijah.
The final two prophets use that symbolic fire (God's Word of Truth) similarly (Rev.11:5; Matt.10:20; Luke 12:12).
These two figures then, are agents of divine judgment, in the time of the end.

Can this power over fire be falsified?
Yes. We saw by means of scripture (Job 1:16), that Satan also has the literal power to bring down "fire from heaven". This recorded fact in God's Word confides to us that Satan also has the power to use symbolic fire, along with the same consequences....
the false appearance that one has been judged, and has lost God's favor.
Do other scriptures bear this out?



Satan did do this... to the poor man Job; and as a result, this faultless man was condemned by his associates
(Job 2:11; 4:1,7,17; 5:1,2; 8:1,3,4,6; 11:1,3,4,5,14,15,20; Eze.22:9; Ps.35:15; Jer.6:28; 2Pet.2:3; 1Cor.4:13; John 16:2; Isa.66:5).

When we read that the False Prophet has the ability to "cause fire to come down from heaven" (Rev.13:11,13), do you think God ("heaven") is giving that false prophet power to judge others by truth and in righteousness?;
OR, do you think that Satan is empowering the "two-horned" false prophet (counterfeit "two witnesses") with the ability to render a  false condemnation of the righteous?
(Rev.11:7,8,9,10; 13:15; 6:9,10,11)
This "fire" comes "from heaven", because the point at which the false prophet receives this power; Satan has not yet been completely removed, and is still "waging war" with the "woman's" seed (Rev.12:3,4,8,13,17). He is not cast down (loses his heavenly authority) until this counterfeit fire is fully used against those righteous ones "killed" by it (Rev.11:7; 6:9,11; John 16:2; Mark 8:35), by which faithful deaths and testimony, he is cast down (Rev.12:10,11; 13:13,15,4).

According to scripture, both God and Satan have the power to condemn. This power of Satan is amply demonstrated against all anointed, including Christ (Matt.26:65; Heb.13:13; 12:2; 11:26; 1Pet.4:14,16; Rom.6:5; Matt.5:11; John 15:21; Acts 5:41; 28:22).
We are plainly told at Rev.12:10, that Satan is known to be "the accuser of our brothers"! He is a false accuser/condemner. How does he manifest those accusations in the physical world? Of course, through the false prophet who is the messenger of his false condemnations (Rev.16:13; 9:1). That counterfeit "divine condemnation", is represented by "fire from heaven".

So as is clear, yes, "fire from heaven" can be falsified, when it condemns the righteous to "death" (Eze.13:19; Jer.23:17,14; Rev.11:8). This is what the false prophet is enabled to do (Rev.9:1; 13:13,15; 6:9,10,11; 11:7,8,9,10) by means of Satan's ability (Job 1:12,16; Rev.13:2; 11:7; 9:11,1) to falsely condemn the righteous, causing counterfeit, symbolic "fire from heaven".

We are told that God will destroy the world by means of "fire" (2Pet.2:5; 3:6,7). The target of this fire is called the "heaven and earth which are now" (2Pet.3:7,12,14,17) and are identified as those who teach lies against the work of God's agents (2Pet.2:1,2,3,9,10).
(Jer.23:31,26,21,22,16,17,15; Rev.8:11).
The wicked are condemned by means of an unfavorable judgment according to Spirit and Truth/Fire. (Both are sourced "in heaven"--"fire from heaven")
          [The Truth is the rod of measurement (Rev.11:1; 2Tim.3:16), to which all must measure up (Amos 7:7-8; Isa.28:17; Zech.4:10).
            The 144000 do "measure up" to that standard. (Rev.21:15,17; 14:5; Eze.43:16)]
            (The meaning of 12, 144000, and 6, can be found at pearl-666.blogspot.com)
That final judgment by means of genuine Truth/Fire, comes through the testimony of the final "two witnesses" (Rev.11:5). Their message of Truth/"fire", is from heaven (Rev.11:4; Jer.5:14; Matt.10:20).
For those who are judged by this genuine "fire from heaven", these will not receive divine protection when Satan brings destruction.
                                                 ______________________

Satan is the Destroyer....not Christ or the Father (John 10:10; 1:4; John 5:40; Ps.36:9).
This world will end  by means of the Devil  (Rev.12:12; John 8:44; Heb.2:14).
The Devil is the original possessor of the "key to the abyss" (authority) over death (Heb.2:14).
                                   (pearl-leviathan.blogspot.com)
Once Christ died faithfully, Jesus acquired that authority (and it's symbolic "key")
(Heb.2:14,15; Rev.1:18; 1Cor.15:55)
Satan's work is lies and murder (John 8:44). Jesus can now undo both (1John 3:8; John 12:31; 16:11)

Satan the Devil is the Destroyer, not God (Rev.9:11; John 10:10; 2Sam.24:16; 1Cor.10:10; 5:5; Ex.12:23; Isa.33:1) (Heb.2:14).
Satan's Sons are "sons of destruction" (2Thess.2:3; John 17:12; 6:70).

When Satan knows his "short period of time" has expired (Rev.12:12; 20:3; Matt.24:22), he will do what he does best.
Only those few who are unmarked by the Beast and have God's favor, will survive the end...
and not be under the Covenant with Death/Babylon the Great (Isa.28:15; Rev.17:5; Matt.7:14; Rev.13:8).

(All of Psalm121; Psalm28:7; 3:3; 13:5; 16:9; 18:2; 91:1,2; 18:2; 61:3; 146:3; Prov.18:10; 14:26; 29:25; 2Sam.22:2; Joel 2:32; Rom.10:13) (Rev.13:8; 20:4)

The wicked who are empowered with "fire" by Satan, so that they may falsely condemn and "kill"
(Rev.9:1; 13:1,2,4; 2Thess.2:3,4,9,10,11,12; 2Cor.11:14,15)
are certainly able to make the righteous appear condemned by God (Rev.13:13).
This occurs in our day, when a public announcement is made ("in sight of men"/"in full view of the people") that falsely condemns a faithful one (when they are  disfellowshipped). All who hear this announcement take it to mean a spiritual death and condemnation by God ("fire from heaven"). None who suffer this false condemnation by means of the Harlot's agent (Gentile Beast), can successfully resist it (Rev.13:4,15; 11:7).
Satan's seed (John 8:44) were even able to condemn Jesus Christ in this way (Matt.26:66; Jer.26:11; John 19:7; Deut.21:22).
The faithful will "follow him, wherever he goes" (Rev.14:4; 1Pet.2:21; 4:1,13; Matt.16:24; Acts14:22; John 14:29,30; Heb.13:13).
