Book Chapter 23

Satan’s hostility toward our all knowing, unchangeable Creator influences all but the chosen. All but the Elect are deceived and if it possible they’d be deceived. Speaking of these latter days, the very Re-Creator, Creator “Son of God - Jesus” said it; “For then there will be great suffering unlike anything that has happened from the beginning of the world until now, or ever will happen. And if those days had not been cut short, no one would be saved. But for the sake of the Elect those days will be cut short.” (21) Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There He is!’ do not believe him. For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the Elect. Remember, I have told you ahead of time.” Matt 24:21-25) The very purpose of Satan and his followers are to deceive the whole world. After all he’s being allowed to be this world’s god. (Always study the whole.)

(Matt 24:30-31; “Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and all the tribes of the earth will mourn. They will see the Son of Man arriving on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He will send His angels with a loud trumpet blast, and they will gather His Elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.”)

The All Knowing said “I change Not” and “I’M the same yesterday today and forever.“ I’m the Alpha and Omega. (Heb 13:7-9; “Remember your leaders, who spoke God’s message to you; reflect on the outcome of their lives and imitate their faith. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever! Do not be carried away by all sorts of strange teachings. For it is good for the heart to be strengthened by grace, not ritual meals, which have never benefited those who participated in them.”) Satan has the world believing something to the effect that “Jesus came to water down His Father’s Way.”

Satan enticed the belief that Mohammad had authority to change God’s Sabbath, an equally absurd - ludicrous group calling themselves Christians believe Paul changed it. These and others are used to cause believing IN faith to be almost non-existing. After all who could trust a changing god. The only way to worship the all knowing Creator God in spirit and truth is to acknowledge His seventh day Sabbath. Seven is significant with God “having to do with perfection and His timing.” We won’t go there in this book but it’s worth exploration. Israelites’ desire for a king, to explore pagan gods etc caused Jesus to have Malachi write for all time.

Mal 2:17; “You have wearied the Lord with your words. But you say, “How have we wearied Him?” Because you say, “Everyone who does evil is good in the Lord’s opinion, and He delights in them,” or “Where is the God of justice?” (Today, the religious are the main perpetrators of condoning what’s bad in God’s view.) Jesus had Malachi continue.

Mal 3:1; “I am about to send My messenger, who will clear the way before Me. Indeed, the Lord you are seeking will suddenly come to His temple, and the messenger of the covenant, whom you long for, is certainly coming,” says the Lord who rules over all.”

Mal 3:2-4; Who can endure the day of His coming? Who can keep standing when He appears? For He will be like a refiner’s fire, like a launderer’s soap. He will act like a refiner and purifier of silver and will cleanse the Levites ‘those who teach’ and refine them like gold and silver. Then they will offer the Lord a proper offering. The offerings of Judah and Jerusalem will be pleasing to the Lord as in former times and years past.”) Remember how they promised to obey after deliverance from Egypt?

(Mal 3:5; “I will come to you in judgment. I will be quick to testify against those who practice divination, those who commit adultery, those who break promises and those who exploit workers, widows, and orphans, who refuse to help the immigrant and in this way show they do not fear Me,” says the Lord who rules over all.”) Let’s compare with Revelations 21:7-8; “The one who conquers will inherit these things, and I will be his God and he will be My son. But to the cowards, unbelievers, detestable persons, murderers, the sexually immoral, and those who practice magic spells, idol worshipers, and all those who lie, their place will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur. That is the second death.”

Remember God’s promises to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob are perpetual.

Mal 3:6-9; “Since, I, the Lord, do not go back on my promises, you, sons of Jacob, ‘Israel’ have not perished. From the days of your ancestors you have ignored My commandments and have not kept them! Return to Me, and I will return to you,” says the Lord who rules over all. “But you say, ‘How should we return?’ (8) Can a person rob God? You indeed are robbing Me, but you say, ‘How are we robbing You?’ In tithes and contributions! (9) You are bound for judgment because you are robbing Me – this whole nation is guilty.”) Satan has worldly religions zeroing in on this text from a monetary point of view, attempting to make folks feel guilt for not giving a tenth of their earnings to the organization. Making contributions to the synagogues of Satan is as bowing to an image. Obviously Jesus is having Malachi write about monetary and time contributions to His Temple. Plagues on people and nations are the result of not heeding.

(Mal 3:10-11; “Bring the entire tithe into the storehouse so that there may be food in My temple. Test Me in this matter,” says the Lord who rules over all, “to see if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you a blessing until there is no room for it all. (11) Then I will stop the plague from ruining your crops, and the vine will not lose its fruit before harvest,” says the Lord who rules over all. “All nations will call you happy, for you indeed will live in a delightful land,” says the Lord who rules over all.”) SEE ISAIAH 35: and Jesus’ gifted prophecy through Isaiah.

(Isaiah  40:1-4; “Comfort, comfort My people,” says your God. “Speak kindly to Jerusalem, and tell her that her time of warfare is over, that her punishment is completed.

For the Lord has made her pay double for all her sins.” (3) A voice cries out, “In the wilderness clear a way for the Lord; construct in the desert a road for our God. Every valley must be elevated, and every mountain and hill leveled. The rough terrain will become a level plain, the rugged landscape a wide valley.”) Always consider that some prophecies are metaphors - figurative of governments etc.

(Isa 40:5-8; The splendor of the Lord will be revealed, and all people will see it at the same time. For the Lord has decreed it.” A voice says, “Cry out!” Another asks, “What should I cry out?” The first voice responds: “All people are like grass, and all their promises are like the flowers in the field. The grass dries up, the flowers wither, when the wind sent by the Lord blows on them. Surely humanity is like grass. The grass dries up, the flowers wither, but the decree of our God is forever reliable.”) We Believers IN look to the whole Word of God, and recognize that He promises to cut time short for the Elect’s sake, thus as noted in 1Corinthians 15: some latter day prophecies may fail because of time being cut short. We each need to pray for that, “so much suffering is alleviated.”

(Isaiah 40:9-11; Go up on a high mountain, O herald Zion! Shout out loudly, O herald Jerusalem! Shout, don’t be afraid! Say to the towns of Judah, “Here is your God!” Look, the sovereign Lord comes as a victorious warrior; His military power establishes His rule.

Look, his reward is with Him; His prize goes before Him. (11) Like a Shepherd He tends His flock; He gathers up the lambs with His arm; He carries them close to His heart; He leads the ewes along. The Lord is Incomparable.) Let’s note Jesus’ promises at Isa 14:

(Isa 14:24-27; “The Lord who commands armies makes this solemn vow: “Be sure of this: Just as I have intended, so it will be; just as I have planned, it will happen. I will break Assyria ’Israel’s persecutor’ in My land, I will trample them underfoot on My hills.

Their yoke will be removed from My people, the burden will be lifted from their shoulders. (26) This is the plan I have devised for the whole earth; My hand is ready to strike all the nations.” Indeed, the Lord who commands armies has a plan, and who can possibly frustrate it? His hand is ready to strike, and who can possibly stop it?)

(Isa 40:12; “Who has measured out the waters in the hollow of His hand, or carefully measured the sky, or carefully weighed the soil of the earth, or weighed the mountains in a balance, or the hills on scales?”

(Isa 40:13-14; Who comprehends the mind of the Lord, or gives Him instruction as His counselor? From whom does He receive directions? Who teaches Him the correct way to do things, or imparts knowledge to Him, or instructs Him in skillful design?”

(Isa 40:15-18; Look, the nations are like a drop in a bucket; they are regarded as dust on the scales. He lifts the coastlands as if they were dust. Not even Lebanon could supply enough firewood for a sacrifice; its wild animals would not provide enough burnt offerings. (17) All the nations are insignificant before Him; they are regarded as absolutely nothing. To whom can you compare God? To what image can you liken Him?

(Isa 40:19-21; A craftsman casts an idol; a metal smith overlays it with gold and forges silver chains for it. To make a contribution one selects wood that will not rot; he then seeks a skilled craftsman to make an idol that will not fall over. (21) Do you not know?

Do you not hear? Has it not been told to you since the very beginning? Have you not understood from the time the earth’s foundations were made?

(Isa 40:22-24; He is the One who sits on the earth’s horizon; its inhabitants are like grasshoppers before Him. He is the One who stretches out the sky like a thin curtain, and spreads it out like a pitched tent. He is the One who reduces rulers to nothing; He makes the earth’s leaders insignificant. (24) Indeed, they are barely planted; yes, they are barely sown; yes, they barely take root in the earth, and then He blows on them, causing them to dry up, and the wind carries them away like straw.

(Isa 40:25-26; “To whom can you compare Me? Whom do I resemble?” says the Holy One. Look up at the sky! Who created all these heavenly lights? He is the One who leads out their ranks; He calls them all by name. Because of His absolute power and awesome strength, not one of them is missing.

(Isa 40:27 Why do you say, Jacob, Why do you say, Israel, “The Lord is not aware of what is happening to me, My God is not concerned with my vindication”? Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is an eternal God, the creator of the whole earth.

He does not get tired or weary; there is no limit to His wisdom. (29) He gives strength to those who are tired; to the ones who lack power, he gives renewed energy. Even youths get tired and weary; even strong young men clumsily stumble. (31) But those who wait for the Lord’s help find renewed strength; they rise up as if they had eagles’ wings, they run without growing weary, they walk without getting tired.”)

So it’s like Jesus had His apostle Paul write, explaining how the world’s population got to the point we’re at.

(Rom 1:18-32; “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of people who suppress the truth by their unrighteousness, because what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them.

(20-23; “For since the creation of the world his invisible attributes – His eternal power and divine nature – have been clearly seen, because they are understood through what has been made. So people are without excuse. For although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God or give Him thanks, but they became futile in their thoughts and their senseless hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for an image resembling mortal human beings or birds or four-footed animals or reptiles.

(24-25; Therefore God gave them over in the desires of their hearts to impurity, to dishonor their bodies among themselves. They exchanged the truth of God for a lie and worshiped and served the creation rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.

(26-27; “For this reason God gave them over to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged the natural sexual relations for unnatural ones, and likewise the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed in their passions for one another. Men committed shameless acts with men and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.”

(28-32; And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what should not be done. They are filled with every kind of unrighteousness, wickedness, covetousness, malice. They are rife with envy, murder, strife, deceit, hostility. They are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, contrivers of all sorts of evil, disobedient to parents, (31) senseless, covenant-breakers, heartless, ruthless. Although they fully know God’s righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die ‘eternally’ they not only do them but also approve of those who practice them.”)

Because of the hardness of fleshly people’s hearts, “how could God rely on some method by which people could be saved?” How could God rely on works? To fulfill His purpose in making mankind in His image and likeness to become members of His holy family, He predestined those He’d call, grant repentance to and resurrect in the likeness of His Son.
