  1. Stupid lazy sectarians are not able to read further on the link All stupid lazy cultists will remain on Earth.
  2. And I like reading the inspired text of the Bible. God authorized 54 people to translate the KJV1611. 47 of them made this translation. Only one change was made to the KJV1611 by these people. This verse (Ruth 3:15). Here the word "he" has been replaced by the word "she". The rest of the changes were made by other people. God promises these people the following things: 18For I testifie vnto euery man that heareth the wordes of the prophesie of this booke, If any man shal adde vnto these things, God shall adde vnto him the plagues, that are written in this booke. 19And if any man shall take away from the wordes of the booke of this prophesie, God shal take away his part out of the booke of life, and out of the holy citie, and from the things which are written in this booke. (Rev.22:18,19) (KJV1611) Below are just a few of the changes these people have made over the course of three hundred years: “And she laid vp his garment by her, vntill her lord came home” (Gen.39:16) (KJV1611) “And she laid vp his garment by her, vntill his lord came home” (Gen.39:16) (FakeKJV) “her” -- (KJV1611) “his” -- (FakeKJV) “and one lambe without blemish” (Num.6:14) (KJV1611) “and one ram without blemish” (Num.6:14) (FakeKJV) “which the Lord giueth” (Deut.26:1) (KJV1611) “which the Lord thy God giveth” (Deut.26:1) (FakeKJV) “fierce wrath of God is vpon you” (2Chron.28:11) (KJV1611) “fierce wrath of the Lord is upon you” (2Chron.28:11) (FakeKJV) “Why then doth their king inherit God” (Jer.49:1) (KJV1611) “why then doth their king inherit Gad” (Jer.49:1) (FakeKJV) “Is not the meate cut off before your eyes” (Joel.1:16) (KJV1611) “Is not the meat cut off before our eyes” (Joel.1:16) (FakeKJV) “The seruant is not greater then the Lord” (John.15:20) (KJV1611) “The servant is not greater than his lord” (John.15:20) (FakeKJV) “halfe tribe of Manasseh” (Josh.13:29) (KJV1611) “half tribe of the children of Manasseh” (Josh.13:29) (FakeKJV) “and his wiues sonnes grew vp” (Judg.11:2) (KJV1611) “and his wife’s sons grew up” (Judg.11:2) (FakeKJV) “Dauid arose, hee and his men” (1Sam.18:27) (KJV1611) “David arose and went, he and his men” (1Sam.18:27) (FakeKJV) “And his seruant said to him” (1Sam.28:7) (KJV1611) “And his servants said to him” (1Sam.28:7) (FakeKJV) “that were in the Temple” (1Kings.11:10) (KJV1611) “that were in the temple of the Lord” (1Kibgs.11:10) (FakeKJV) “were men of might” (1Chron.7:5) (KJV1611) “were valiant men of might” (1Chron.7:5) (FakeKJV) “where the slaine are, there is he” (Job.39:30) (KJV1611) “where the slain are, there is she” (Job.39:30) (FakeKJV) “whome yee had set at libertie” (Jer.34:16) (KJV1611) “whom he had set at liberty” (Jer.34:16) (FakeKJV) “So the king sware secretly” (Jer.38:16) (KJV1611) “So Zedekiah the king sware secretly” (Jer.38:16) (FakeKJV) “vnto thy people” (Ezek.3:11) (KJV1611) “unto the children of thy people” (Ezek.3:11) (FakeKJV) “Is this the sonne of Dauid?” (Matt.12:23) (KJV1611) “Is not this the son of David?” (Matt.12:23) (FakeKJV) “perfect vnderstanding of things” (Luke.1:3) (KJV1611) “perfect understanding of all things” (Luke.1:3) (FakeKJV) “the redemption that is in Iesus Christ” (Rom.3:24) (KJV1611) “the redemption that is in Christ Jesus” (Rom.3:24) (FakeKJV) “helpes in gouernmēts, diuersities of tongues” (1Cor.12:28) (KJV1611) “helps, governments, diversities of tongues” (1Cor.12:28) (Fake1611) “another of the moone” (1Cor.15:41) (KJV1611) “and another glory of the moon” (1Cor.15:41) (FakeKJV) “For in this we grone earnestly, desiring to be clothed” (2Cor.5:2) (KJV1611) “For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed” (2Cor.5:2) (FakeKJV) “the King, kept the citie with a garison” (2Cor.11:32) (KJV1611) “the king kept the city of the Damascenes with a garrison” (2Cor.11:32) (FakeKJV) “rather then edifying” (1Tim.1:4) (KJV1611) “rather than godly edifying” (1Tim.1:4) (FakeKJV) “and enuies, and euill speaking” (1Pet.2:1) (KJV1611) “and envies, and all evil speakings” (1Pet.2:1) (FakeKJV) “hee that hath not the Sonne, hath not life” (1John.5:12) (KJV1611) “he that hath not the Son of God hath not life” (1John.5:12) (FakeKJV)
  3. Then you're not rightly dividing the Word. .. In my opinion, you're misrepresenting the Word of God, and trying to lead people here astray. This shows you're not being led by the Holy Spirit, either. These are unfounded accusations. Scripture calls such accusations slander.
  4. These Scriptures STILL don't prove your point. I believe your hermeneutics are way off here. But, as I've stated, it's not worth wasting time arguing about. It's a diversionary tactic of the adversary. I am not guided by hermeneutics, exegesis, or evolutionary theory. These disciplines were invented by people. Scripture calls these disciplines science, fasly so called (1 Tim. 6:20). I am setting forth biblical doctrine.
  5. Stupid "slow bellies" (Tit.1:12), "Christians" are ready to call God Himself a fool. "a thousand two hundred and threescore dayes" (Rev.11:3) "fortie and two moneths" (Rev.13:5) "a thousand two hundred and ninetie dayes" (Dan.12:11) "the thousand, three hundred and fiue and thirtie dayes" (Dan.12:12)
  6. I already wrote above that this is only about one significant event. There will be several such events in the future time period, including "the mariage of the Lambe" (Rev.19:7) on the day of Pentecost.
  7. Dumb "Christians" do not realize that there can be false prophets only during the period of time when there are prophets.
  8. Modern "Christians" do not understand the difference between the biblical terms "Church of the first born" (Heb.12:23) and "Church of God" (1Cor.10:32). For this reason, they argue among themselves when there will be a rapture of the Church before the tribulation or after it.
  9. If you go to the site using this link, then let me know http://www.lordway.ru/English/otrasl/otrasl_2.htm ...Now, knowing the date of the DAY of Pentecost, we can determine the year and month of the middle of the last week of Daniel. This is the very time when the devil will give the beast “his power, and his seat, and great authoritie” (Rev.13:2). This is the very time when the beast will begin to serve the Babylonian harlot. You will be surprised at the result! These events will take place in the month of June 2066. Do you understand what the number of the beast means? The three digits 666 represent the sixth month of 2066. This is an abbreviated notation of the month and year in the current century 06/21/66. For example, the military conflict in South Ossetia in August 2008 is called “the 08.08.08 war”, or in abbreviated form “the 888 war”. The abbreviated notation of the day, month and year was used here. From June 28, 2066 to December 28, 2069, forty‑two calendar months will pass. It is at this time that great authority will be given to the beast (Rev.13:5). The false prophet will cause “all, both smal and great rich and poore, free and bond, to receiue a marke in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, saue he that had the marke, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisedome. Let him that hath vnderstanding, count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man, and his number is, sixe hundred threescore and sixe” (Rev.13:16‑18). We have counted the number of the beast. The date of the “event 666” is confirmed by the first verse of the 8th chapter of Ezekiel. The fact is that on this day young men who have no blemish, beautiful appearance, skillful in all wisdom and understanding science, will be sent to the service of the Babylonian harlot (Dan.1:4). In the chapter (Ezek.8) we are shown their ministry. “And it came to passe in the sixt yeere, in the sixt moneth, in the fift day of the month, as I sate in mine house, and the elders of Iudah sate before me; that the hand of the Lord God fell there vpon me” (Ezek.8:1). This verse indicates the year, month, and day of the beginning of their service to another's gods. The day is based on the phase of the moon. Knowing the phases of the moon in 2066, you can determine the day and month according to the Gregorian calendar, it will be June 27, 2066. Isaiah predicted to Hezekiah that the alliance between the king of Judah and the king of Babylon would have tragic consequences for the kingdom of Judah. In this prophecy, Scripture shows us the events of the middle of Daniel's last week. An offer will be made to the ruler of Israel, and he, being a proud, vain and selfish person, will not be able to refuse (Judges.18:19‑20). Having started his ministry with the Babylonian harlot, he will actually sacrifice Israel. He will act like Jephthah, who sacrificed his only daughter, fulfilling his vow (Judg.11:35‑40). An idol shepherd will take from the people to “Babylon” EVERYTHING that until that time will be collected in reserve by the fathers, “nothing shall be left, sayth the Lord”. And the best sons of the people, “of the kings seed, and of the Princes” (Dan.1:3) he will take with him. They will be given two months to get ready and say goodbye to their relatives. It is said: Jephthah sent his daughter to go up the mountains to mourn his virginity with his fellows (Judg.11:37‑38). “Behold, the dayes come, that all that is in thine house, and that which thy fathers haue layde vp in store vnto this day, shall be caried vnto Babylon: nothing shall be left, sayth the Lord. And of thy sonnes that shall issue from thee, which thou shalt beget, shall they take away, and they shall bee Eunuches in the palace of the king of Babylon” (2Kings.20:17‑18). The man of sin, fulfilling the function of the high priest of the Russian Orthodox Church, will have power “ouer the fourth part of the earth” (Rev.6:8). Therefore, a rider named Death will be able “to kill with sword, & with hunger, and with death, and with the beastes of the earth” for three years only on a fourth of the earth. But even this is enough for the wife to be drunk with “with the blood of the Saints, and with the blood of the Martyrs of Iesus” (Rev.17:6). Whoever manages to escape from the sword of the Babylonian harlot will be killed by the revived Image, and whoever, having received the mark, escapes from his sword, will be killed by Prince Michael (1Kings.19:17). In any case, the Lord will leave seven thousand men for Himself in Israel, whose knees “haue not bowed vnto Baal, and euery mouth which hath not kissed him” (1Kings.19:18). Jesus told the people gathered against Him: “When I was daily with you in the Temple, yee stretched foorth no hands against mee: but this is your houre, and the power of darkenesse” (Luke.22:53). The devil and his angels will be given authority for seven years, from 2063 to 2069, to show themselves in all their things. It said: “this is your houre”. In 2066, the devil will transfer “his power, and his seat, and great authoritie” (Rev.13:2) to the beast from the sea. From this time on, “the power of darkenesse” will come on earth. Scripture through types gives us the opportunity to imagine many events of that time and feel them. In the story of the crucifixion of Jesus, we are shown these two periods of time with an exact indication of their beginning and end. In 2063, the seventieth week of Daniel will begin (Dan.9:27). The Scripture designates this year as “the third houre”. “And it was the third houre, and they crucified him” (Mark.15:25). The middle of the week is indicated by the phrase: “at the sixth hour.” “And when the sixth houre was come, there was darkenesse ouer the whole land, vntill the ninth houre” (Mark.15:33). In 2066, “the power of darkenesse” will come throughout the earth and will continue until 2069. It is said: “vntill the ninth houre”. The events that will occur at this time are described in chapter 13 of the book of Revelation. At the end of 2069 (Mark.15:34) Jesus Christ will call to God from the womb of hell, and He will hear His voice. “In my distresse I called vpon the Lord, and cryed vnto my God: hee heard my voyce out of his temple, and my crie came before him, euen into his eares” (Ps.18:6). Psalm 18 shows us the deliverance of Jesus Christ from the hand of all His enemies. At this time, the devil will descend to earth “hauing great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time” (Rev.12:12). The reign of darkness will end on the DAY of Pentecost, when people will see “the signe of the Sonne of man in heauen”...
  10. The reason is simple. This world always blocks what is dangerous for it. A person who is looking for truth will always find it, and a lazy person will always find a reason. I freely follow this link http://www.lordway.ru/English/otrasl/otrasl_2.htm

  12. Ok. 25"from the going foorth of the commandement to restore and to build Ierusalem, vnto the Messiah the Prince, shall be seuen weekes" (Dan.9:25) (KJV1611) https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/1611_Daniel-Chapter-9/
  13. Modern "Christians" are "slow bellies" (Tit.1:12)(KJV1611) 12. You removed this text because it speaks truth. https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/1611_Titus-Chapter-1/
  14. Modern "Christians" are "slow bellies" (Tit.1:12). "The inhabitants of Jerusalem in the near future will fulfill the words of prophecy, read every Saturday day! Not finding in him any guilt worthy of death, they will ask “Pilate” that “he should be slaine” (Acts.13:28). And this is not surprising, because the people of Israel for the first time will begin to understand the Word of God only after the DAY of Pentecost, although by that time they should have already become teachers. And at the present time the whole Christian society is in a similar infant state. The Jews know about the coming of the Messiah and, in their own way, expect Him. But the Christian society even has no idea about Him, though Christians have at least some idea of a man of sin who will be accepted in Israel as the Messiah. Neither Jews nor Christians have a complete correct picture of future events, because neither ones nor the another do not understand the prophetic meaning of the Word of God." http://www.lordway.ru/English/otrasl/otrasl_1.htm
  15. This event will take place at the end of the Millennium. The rapture of the "Church of the first born" (Heb. 12:23) will take place in less than a month. "September 18, 2020 is the starting point for a new period of time, lasting 50 prophetic years. This date corresponds to the first day of the first month in the prophetic reckoning of years. In the tenth chapter of the book of Ezra, Scripture speaks of the events that will take place in the Tabernacle of heaven after Church of the first born is gathered there. Notice, Scripture uses a new count of time. And they “sate downe in the first day of the tenth moneth to examine the matter” (Ezra.10:16) If we count 270 days (nine prophetic months) from the date of September 18, 2020, then the next (271 days) will be “the first day of the tenth moneth” - June 15, 2021, this is the day when the Church of the first born will enter the heavenly Tabernacle for the first time. It is said: And they “sate downe …” And the meeting will make an important decision after three months: “And they made an ende, with all the men that had taken strange wiues, by the first day of the first moneth” (Ezra.10:17) The first day of the first month (already the next prophetic year) will be Monday, September 13, 2021. By this day, on the eve of it, the command “to restore and to build Ierusalem” will be issued (Dan.9:25). Here we are talking about making an important decision - building the Temple not made with hands. In the ninth chapter of the book of Daniel (Dan.9:25), continuing to count the years unto the Messiah the Prince, Scripture confirms the correctness of the specified date. “from the going foorth of the commandement to restore and to build Ierusalem, vnto the Messiah the Prince, shall be seuen weekes” (Dan.9:25) Christ will become the Messiah the Prince on the DAY of Pentecost, December 28 - 29, 2069. The 49 prophetic years contain 17640 days. After counting down the days, we find that the commandment “to restore and to build Ierusalem” will be issued on Sunday, September 12, 2021. 49 prophetic years are counted from this date “vnto the Messiah the Prince”..."

  16. Apparently there are no people on this forum who can know how to count the number of a man !? Even people who have advanced degrees are unable to do this. Scripture says that this can only be done by a person who "hath vnderstanding" (Rev.13:18) (KJV1611). And this person is not me. In spite of this, any person who is able to see the prophetic meaning of the verses of Scripture can already know how "the number of the beast" (Rev.13:18), the number of that man of sin (2Thess.2:3) is calculated. The number 666 is the date. A person who "hath vnderstanding" (Rev.13:18) (KJV1611) has already counted not only the date of the event 666, but also the most important dates of the seven thousand-year history of this Earth. There is only one of the most important events, the date of which cannot be counted. Scripture says that no one knows "neither the day, nor the houre" (Matt.25:13) of this event. It is only known that this event will take place at the end of the seven thousand year of the history of this Earth, then “Heauen and earth shall passe away” (Matt.24:35), “and the Elements shall melt with feruent heat” (2Pet.3:10). Not only the present Earth will burn and be destroyed, but the entire Universe "to the third heauen" (2Cor.12:2), and there will be found "no place for them" (Rev. 20:11). You can read about how "the number of the beast" is calculated, and from what time will people begin to receive "his marke" (Rev.15:2) here http://www.lordway.ru/English/otrasl/otrasl_2.htm
  17. The context of this verse speaks differently: 44No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me, draw him: and I will raise him vp at the last day. 45It is written in the Prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Euery man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, commeth vnto me, 46Not that any man hath seene the Father; saue hee which is of God, hee hath seene the Father. 47Uerely, verely I say vnto you, Hee that beleeueth on me, hath euerlasting life.
  18. "...To justify “many”, “the trauell of his soule” is necessary. He must put His soul to death. The death of His body on the cross of Calvary is not an offering for sin. Only His soul can be an offering for sin. In order for God's justice to be satisfied, the decision of God the Father for trespass against Him must be fair. And Christ will be ready to accept the worst punishment, although His soul resists: “take away this cup from me.” In other words: “Do not leave, do not reject Me.” It is not in vain that the Scripture figuratively calls Christ and the Church of the firstborn the king’s prisoners, and the heavenly Tabernacle -- the prison (Gen.39:20). He was not afraid of the idea of giving his life that he might “take it againe”, but to feel condemned to death, and then to be given into the hands of the devil and his angels, actually to perdition, to see how “gates of death” are opening before thou (Job.38:17) and the pit shuts “her mouth vpon” thou (Ps. 69:15), this is really “the trauell of his soule” (Is.53:11). When “their hour” comes, “the whole multitude of them” will rise upon Christ (Luke 23:1), these are the devil and his angels, prophetically: “a great multitude with swords, and staues” (Mark.14:43). Christ will say: “Leave the firstborns, do not destroy the believers who have remained on the earth, take Me.”
  19. Scripture says the opposite of it: "¶ Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him, he hath put him to griefe: when thou shalt make his soule an offring for sinne, he shall see his seede, hee shall prolong his daies, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand." (Is.53:10)
  20. Only Israel in the future Millennium: "After of the rapture of “Church of the first borne” (Heb. 12:23), a transitional period will come from our time to the Millennium. This period will continue 49 years. After the Lord Jesus Christ will be reigned at the end of the seventieth week of Daniel (Rev. 11:17), the kingdoms of this world will become “the kingdomes of our Lord, and of his Christ” (Rev. 11:15). There will be restored Kingdom “to Israel” (Acts.1:6). The Lord Jesus Christ will come “in his glory” (Mat.25:31) with “healing in his wings” (Mal.4:2). “In that day there shalbe a fountaine opened to the house of Dauid, and to the inhabitants of Ierusalem, for sinne, and for vncleannesse” (Zech.13:1). Nature will be also renewed. And “the light of the Sunne shall be seuenfold” (Is. 30:26), and “the lyon shall eate straw like the bullocke” (Is.65:25). Peoples who will not come to fight “against Ierusalem” (Zech.14:12) into “a place, called in the Hebrewe tongue, Armageddon” (Rev. 16:17) will enter in the Millennium. There will be made the new covenant “with the house of Israel, and the house of Iudah” (Heb.8:8). The “royall Law” will come into force (James 2:8) (Matthew 5-7). Israel will receive power and authority to obedience to the faith among all nations in the Millennium. Israel and subsequently believing Gentiles will receive the power to attack all this “the power of the enemie” (Luke 10:19); these are the “angels” (Rev. 12: 9) of Satan. Then Israel will receive a command from the Lord Jesus Christ: “¶ Goe ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father, and of the Sonne, and of the holy Ghost: Teaching them to obserue all things, whatsoeuer I haue commanded you: and loe, I am with you alway, euen vnto the end of the world. Amen” (Matthew 28: 19-20). After which God will “gone vp with a shout” (Ps.47:5) “into heaven” (Mark.16:19). The Father will say to the Son: “Sit thou at my right hand: vntil I make thine enemies thy footestoole” (Ps.110:1). The Scripture says: “For he (the Son) must reigne, till hee (the Father) hath put all enemies vnder his (Son’s) feete” (1Cor.15:25). And He has set down (Mark.16:19). “God sitteth vpon the throne of his holinesse” (Ps.47:8) “God is the King of all the earth” (Ps.47:7) Scripture tells to the Millennium believers: “Honour the King” (1Pet.2:17) From now on, Israel will “see heauen open, and the Angels of God ascending, and descending vpon the sonne of man” (John 1:51), upon them. This is the ministry of the Church of God in this period of time. Due to the fact that Satan will be bound (Rev. 20:2), and cast “into the bottomlesse pit” (Rev.20:3), competition between people will be weaken on Earth; there will be no international conflicts and wars. Therefore, every one “of all the nations” (Zech.14:16), who will enter into the Millennium, “shall beate their swords into plow-shares” (Is.2:4). In those days “ten men shall take holde out of all languages of the nations, euen shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Iew” (Zech.8:23), because salvation will be “of the Iewes” (John.4:22). At the end of the Millennium, Israel will again depart from God."
  21. "All “the called of Iesus Christ” (Rom.1:6) in our time have not received any laws or statutes from Him. They could not receive them. The only Law for called of Jesus Christ in our age is their conscience (Rom.2:14,15), (1Tim.1:19). And the only sure guide in life is the Word of God. However, God Himself gives a correct understanding of His Word, provided that a man strives to act according to his conscience, in truth. The first verse of the first chapter of the Gospel of Mark announces the beginning of the Gospel of Jesus Christ (Mark.1:1). It will begin with the “voice of one crying in the wildernesse”. The beginning of the sermon of the first witness of His resurrection will begin, as Scripture says, early the first day of the week. Scripture tells us about all the upcoming significant events in the following verses of the first chapter of the Gospel according to S. Mark." All “the called of Iesus Christ” (Rom.1:6) in our time have not received any Laws or statutes from Him. They could not receive them. The only Law for called of Jesus Christ in our age is their conscience (Rom.2:14,15), (1Tim.1:19). And the only sure guide in life is the Word of God. However, God Himself gives a correct understanding of His Word, provided that a man strives to act according to his conscience, in truth. “¶ Keepe thy heart with all diligence: for out of it are the issues of life” (Prov.4:23). All the more, the event, to which the feast of the weeks points, is in the future too, because Jesus Christ has not reigning yet. In the prophetic language of Scripture, Jesus Christ did not rise. The teaching must be built on the prophetic meaning of the verses, because the Author of the Scriptures speaks through it. Our period of time is hidden in Scripture, so the books of the New Testament have no epistles, instructions, laws, commandments, covenants, rites, worships and sermon of the Gospel for those who are faithful to Him. If anyone thinks otherwise, then he accepted the Word of God as the word of men (1 Thess. 2:13). Nowadays, to put the works in the merit of oneself and to claim that faith without works is dead, is distortion of the Scripture. But very soon significant changes will take place, as a result of which the violent will take Kingdom of Heaven by force (Matt.11:12). The first verse of the first chapter of the Gospel of Mark announces the beginning of the Gospel of Jesus Christ (Mark.1:1). It will begin with the “voice of one crying in the wildernesse”. “The beginning of the Gospel of Iesus Christ, the Sonne of God, As it is written in the prophets, Behold, As it is written in the Prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.” (Mark.1:1,2) The beginning of the sermon of the first witness of His resurrection will begin, as Scripture says, early the first day of the week. Scripture tells us about all the upcoming significant events in the following verses of the first chapter of the Gospel of Mark. So, let’s wait!
  22. Either change your browser, or install an antivirus. Evangelical Christians, Orthodox, Catholics, and the whole Christian world believe that water baptism and the Lord’s Supper are the commandments of Jesus Christ given to them. The question arises: “When? On what day, month, and year was the New Testament given to Christians and given these commandments? Maybe is it said in the ceremonial Law?” Feasts of ceremonial Law point us to all significant events in the past and in the future, and such a day would not remain a secret. But only none of them indicate a similar event. There are two sections in the books of the Old Testament yet, these are Prophets and Psalms. Maybe we will find the commandments given by Jesus Christ to the former Gentiles there? And so, studying the verses relating to the rapture of the Church of the firstborn, I was particularly interested in 35 chapter of the book of Jeremiah. “Then I tooke Iaazaniah the sonne of Ieremiah the sonne of Habazimah and his brethren, and all his sonnes, and the whole house of the Rechabites” (Jer.35:3). “And I brought them into the house of the Lord, into the chamber of the sonnes of Hanan, the sonne of Igdaliah a man of God, which was by the chamber of the Princes, which was aboue the chamber of Maaseiah, the sonne of Shallum, the keeper of the doore” (Jer.35:4). The phrase, “I brought them into the house of the Lord, into the chamber“, speaks prophetically of the rapture of the Church of the firstborn, and the beginning of the service in the first “chamber” of the heavenly Tabernacle. There are many similar expressions which shows this event in Scripture, for example: “And when they were come in, they went vp into an vpper roome” (Acts.1:13). “And there were many lights in the vpper chamber where they were gathered together” (Acts.20:8). “And Iosephs master tooke him, and put him into the prison, a place, where þe kings prisoners were bound: and he was there in the prison” (Gen.39:20). Rechabites lived according to their customs and traditions in the society of Israel. The Scripture prophetically calls a such manner of people called by Jesus Christ and living among community of the Christian, with its many denominations. Scripture shows us two groups of people who are faithful and unfaithful to their Father. People faithful to their Father fulfill His Word: ”the sonnes of Ionadab, the sonne of Rechab, haue performed the commaundement of their father” (Jer.35:16). Unbelievers hearkened not unto Him, ignore. “I haue spoken vnto you, rising early, and speaking, but ye hearkened not vnto me” (Jer.35:14). Scripture, contrasting the obedience of the Rechabites to the stubbornness of the society of Israel, compares the people called by Jesus Christ with the Community of Christians of our time. The loyalty of the Rechabites to their father was tested in certain circumstances that prophetically point out to us a well-known rite in the Christian world. “And I set before the sonnes of the house of the Rechabites, pottes, full of wine, and cups, and I said vnto them, Drinke ye wine” (Jer.35:5). The room, in which full cups and cups of wine are placed in front of people who know their Father, and the words “drink ...” sound, serves to hold the Eucharist, Communion, or Protestant supper today. “But they said, We will drinke no wine: for Ionadab the sonne of Rechab our father, commanded vs” (Jer.35:6). “We will drink no wine: for ...” - prophetically means: “We do not participate in the Lord’s supper, because we listen to the Word of Our Father and trust Him.” Our heavenly Father, gave us a “commandment” saying: “Ye shall drinke no wine, neither ye, nor your sonnes for euer” (Jer.35:6). The order of the Lord’s Supper is not established by the Lord, because the people of Israel have not yet been taught this through the revelation of Jesus Christ. Israel is not healed, has not entered into the rest, has not received revelations from the Lord, has not been sent to serve the Gentiles. Therefore, disputes and discussions around the Lord's Supper have been going on for centuries. Some denominations claim that you need to observe washing your feet before the sacrament. Other denominations argue about how bread should be, leavened or unleavened? What wine you can to consume wine? Dilute wine with water or use grape juice? Catholics and Orthodox claim that bread and wine are turned into the Body and Blood of Christ through the prayer of a Priest. In the concept of other denominations, no transformations take place, but they still perceive it as a mystery. To which there is one answer: “Trust the Word of God and similar questions will not arise!” So, this “mystery” unites the entire Christian world, therefore the person’s attitude to him, his participation or not participation, determines which group of believers he belongs to, the Rechabite’s house or these who “himselfe separated from the congregation of those that had beene caried away” (Ezra.10:8). “Neither shall ye build house, nor sow seed, nor plant Uineyard, nor haue any: but all your dayes ye shall dwell in tents, that ye may liue many dayes in the land where ye be strangers” (Jer.35:7). People, called by Jesus Christ and living among the society of “Christians”, have always been persecuted for centuries; they have been delivered “to the sword, to captiuitie, and to a spoile, and to confusion of face” (Ezra.9:7). “Thus haue we obeyed the voice of Ionadab the sonne of Rechab our father, in all that he hath charged vs, to drinke no wine all our dayes, we, our wiues, our sonnes, nor our daughters: Nor to build houses for vs to dwel in, neither haue we Uineyard, nor field, nor seed. But wee haue dwelt in tents, and haue obeyed, and done according to all that Ionadab our father commanded vs.” (Jer.35:8-10). “These all died in faith, not hauing receiued the promises, but hauing seene them a farre off, and were perswaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth” (Heb.11:13). Here is the “commandment”: “Do not have attachment to the things of this world, to houses, to fields, to cars”, “that ye may liue many dayes in the land where ye be strangers.” And yet, “for a litle space grace”, a departure from the “commandment” occurred, the Rechabites “left the tent, and went to live in the city.” “But it came to passe when Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon came vp into the land, that we said, Come, and let vs goe to Ierusalem for feare of the armie of the Caldeans, and for feare of the armie of the Syrians: so we dwell at Ierusalem” (Jer.35:11). What does it mean? On the eve of the rapture of the Church of the firstborn, the Lord God “lighten our eyes” and “giue vs a litle reuiuing in our bondage”, to people who trust the Word of God. The desire to use the benefits of civilization is understandable, but many have revived beyond measure, so much so that they have need of nothing (Rev. 3:17). In past centuries, people called by Jesus Christ did not have the opportunity to thoroughly research and study the Word of God. There was a persecution of the Church, and they stood the test. For example, there was a threaten of death for such a sermon in the Middle Ages. Even in the 60s in the USSR, for preaching the Word of God one could easily get up to 10 years in prison. Ignorance of the prophetic significance of books and the Bible verses was justified. For example, in the USSR from March 1, 1931, the sale and import of the Bible was prohibited. And only after the defeat in the forty-year war with the USA, the Word of God in our country became available to everyone. It would seem that now is the most favorable time, but the Scripture says that people who trust the Word of God in our time are like a drop in the sea: “a remnant to escape”. It is like a few ripe ears of corn among sown fields (Luke 6:1). People faithful to Christ are now undergoing a test of a different kind, this test of prosperity. This is the last, most difficult test of faithful people, and is popularly called the test of copper pipes. Chapters 9, 10 of the book of Ezra, prophetically, speak of our days. “And now for a litle space grace hath bene shewed from the Lord our God, to leaue vs a remnant to escape, and to giue vs a naile in his holy place, that our God may lighten our eyes, and giue vs a litle reuiuing in our bondage” (Ezra.9:8). Just as the people of Israel worshiped other gods, the current Christian society has taken for itself “strange wives of the people of the land” And this is the payment for the fact that the Rechabites, in due time, “left the tent and went to live in the city”, where most of them, having rejected faith and a good conscience, became rich. To get them out of this state can only be a strong shock associated, for example, with a radical change in their lives. Critical thinking will not turn on in people, and hearing and vision will not appear without this. “I haue sent also vnto you all my seruants the Prophets, rising vp early and sending them, saying, Returne ye now euery man from his euil way, and amend your doings, and goe not after other gods to serue them, and ye shall dwell in the land, which I haue giuen to you, and to your fathers: but yee haue not enclined your eare, nor hearkned vnto me” (Jer.35:15). “Therefore thus saith the Lord God of hostes, the God of Israel, Behold, I will bring vpon Iudah, and vpon all the inhabitants of Ierusalem, all the euill that I haue pronounced against them: because I haue spoken vnto them, but they haue not heard, and I haue called vnto them, but they haue not answered” (Jer.35:17). The people made to themselves a golden god, and now, when the call of Christ sounds: “Who is on the Lords side? let him come vnto mee” (Ex.32:26), only “the sons of Levi” will respond unto Him. In the last verse, the Author of the Scripture shows us the near future of the Rechabites. The Man who will soon enter the Holy place to intercede in the presence of God the Father, is “one of our next kinsemen” (Ruth.2:20), from the “house of the Rechabites”. “Ionadab the son of Rechab shall not want a man to stand before me for euer” (Jer.35:19). Indeed, one can understand the indignation of Jesus Christ against current Christians. The whole Christian world are criminals before God, their guilt has risen to heaven. Therefore, no local church will be taken to serve in the Tabernacle of heaven. Absolutely all of them will be excommunicated “from the congregation of those that had beene caried away” (Ezra.10:8), and all their “substance should be forfeited”. However, the spirit of the each of them will be “saued in the day of the Lord Iesus Christ.” The golden Altar, under which there will be “the soules of them that were slaine for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held” (Rev.6:9), will be before the veil in the heavenly Tabernacle. All of them, who “hauing put away, concerning faith, haue made shipwracke” (1Tim.1:19), will be saved “to land” (Acts.27:44), because Christ will be heard in that he feared (Heb.5:7). Only they will never be the firstborn. They form one large group of the saved who are chosen. In the book “To Hebrews”, on the eve of His Second Coming “in the day of the Lord Iesus Christ,” they are called the general assembly (Heb.12:22-24). Where Christ is and they will be with Him (John.17:24).
