Re: Jesus is Coming Back for His Bride without Spot or Wrinkle
But look at how corrupted many of the 'middlemen of God' (clergy, etc.) have acted in these last few decades, where things have become harder to hide. There is no need for a middleman really, yet for 2000 years, middlemen were essentially 'God' to most people and that kind of power over people is how these groups thrive. They are men, not Gods.

You cannot go wrong when it's you and God and no one in between. Which is why I don't like to spend time tossing catch phrases and 'acting like a good Christian' in order to impress my peers around me. They can judge all they want. You know what I mean?
 Quoting: BOWMAN


I can agree with that. And not only for the RCC. As soon as people decided to turn the organism into an organization, power began its corrupting work. The apostles predicted that "wolves would arise from among you and scatter the flock", which is exactly what happened. Though like Israel there has always been a small minority keeping the faith, the church has been in a "diaspora" of its own.

Rome has always been in the business of persecuting Christians, and nothing changed when Christianity became an approved state religion. Instead of Caesars, it was the "bishops" burning people and Bibles. This continued even after the Reformation, where Luther and others became enraged at those who refused to follow their rules. Luther hated Jews and women, and Calvin hated pretty much everybody who dared to disagree with him, even to the point of burning at the stake.

Now, Satan has taken the approach of entertainment and "peace at any price" rather than the direct frontal assault. People are much easier to corrupt if they're slowly led astray by subtle and crafty lies. The result is a "seeker" church filled with unbelievers who, as predicted, "have an outward form of godliness but deny its power".

I spent the first 47 years of my life in "church", very active and faithful, a musician and sometimes teacher. But the more I studied the scriptures, the more convinced and convicted I became to "come out of her, my people". I no longer treat God as if I'm visiting a relative in a nursing home once a week to assuage my guilt, but as my best friend and mentor, the One who loved me enough to die for me before I was even born.
Have I now become your enemy by telling you the truth? (Gal. 4:16)

How so?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 24799796


I mean, that's 2000 years of corruption on top of his teachings. Things like language, social control structures and the peer pressure they bring...those are things that you need to wade through if you were raised as a typical Christian, in order to bake out the corruption.

 Quoting: BOWMAN


Havent the Dead Sea Scrolls proven that the Bible is reliable?

I´m a student of Bible prophecy. For every 1 prophecy of Christ´s 1st coming, there are 8 for His second coming. The essence of prophecy os to give a clear witness for Jesus.

Do you deny that Jesus Christ was an Historical figure?

Bowman,

Believing this makes Our Lord a liar. He told Peter, Satan
will not overcome My Church (Matt 16:18). The evil one hasn't, sad though, soon, he's going to enlist the anti-Christ to try again.

When this happens, the true Church will go underground like
the first Christians went through...

To this day, the Church has never changed her teaching on
faith and morals. She follows Christ. So when you see
changes coming in the RCC, do not worry, it's temporary,
the evil one will not take down Christ's Church.

Thanks, just remember the priest scandal makes Satan happy,
he has people believing every priest is evil.

1% of priests were accused, what of the rest? Satan believes in the New Covenant ministerial priesthood and

it.

In the new time, the 7th Day, I think you and I will see
it, the priesthood will be 100% holy.

You gotta change, people leave the faith but return.
Ditto to dear Once4All.

The Remnant is Roman Catholic. The oral tradition, Scripture and present day prophecy and the saints of old
say so...

Believe Our Lord, He knows the future, Satan will not destroy My Church.

After the Great Warning which could be next year, no
more Protestantism or Orthodox. You'll still have
to decide in this gift from God, he respects free will
always.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 24799796


You see, you're playing into the 'catch phrase' game to figure out if I'm 'one of you'.

Leave that bit up to God, okay?

That's the 'devils language' (judging via catch phrases, stereotypes, labels, etc.) and I refuse to acknowledge that.

We are living in a world where what they teach in school is that essentially from a point of being, is that "you do not matter to the universe as you are a product of randomness and chance."

And when I look out in the world I see a lot of people who feel and behave as such. Not understanding that they ARE a part of something greater than themselves.

Why don't Christians challenge the way they go about spreading this essential message, that people do matter to this Creation?

The science is there, the perspective is available, the information is flowing at an astonishing rate, ready to be discerned. I don't get why most people keep turning to a 2000 year old book (and I'm not attempting to discount it at all) when RIGHT NOW you can learn about what's happening in this reality in real time.

I mean, I guess I would have to give some credit to the Creationists out there. At least they are trying.

No, no, no, total error about the faith. Figure it out, where did his studying the Bible come from if he didn't have a Bible to study. The Church. Think, where was Christiantiy for 15 centuries before the revolt? Did the men who knew the Apostles believe in the most Holy Eucharist? Yes!!

It's so much easier to be Protestant,
you get to decide your own justification. If you don't
want to go to Church on Sunday, no big deal.

And remember, where is the evidence of the miraculous found
most....Roman Catholicism. No break, century after century from 33 A.D. until this day.

The greatest miracles, I can name 3 that have been studied
by science over and over and over. The new Italian studies
show man cannot make the UV rays yet that made the marks on
the Shroud.

1. The Shroud of Turin

2. The tilma of Guadalupe

3. Padre Pio bore the wounds of Christ for 50 years

I was not seeking God nor had I even opened a Bible.

But fortunately......He was Seeking Me.

Christ is the Seeker. He is alive.


He Himself showed up at my house and showed me that I was lost and perishing.


I then turned my life over to Him......and was immediately indwelt by the Holy Spirit.....and connected with God.


That was back in Sept of 1988.


The relationship is real......and He has been very kind and patient with me.


As such......Christ is now my first love.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 24326290


My experience was similar.

A seed was planted by a co-worker--she was a light that shined in my dark world. The Holy Spirit, unbeknownst to me, continued to water that seed each week until the day I made the decision to hand my life over to Christ, too.

It happened late in the evening, I went to bed teary-eyed. The next morning I was in a whole new world, it was if all the things that weighed me down were lifted. His creation became alive in a different way. I felt like I was floating on clouds and I didn't want the feeling to go away.

Reflecting on it now, I can see that new life was given to me, a new heart filled with His Holy Spirit. My sins were forgiven, and I was washed in His Blood. This is why I speak of these things, so that others might know Him, who is Truth.

I didn't know of all these things when I was born in the Spirit, but I have come to know more of God, His Son and who I am in Christ during my journey here in this life.

I've traveled off the narrow path many times, only to be guided back by the loving Hands and Words of our Father.

Revival is what I am hearing in my spirit now. I know I must pray more and keep my eyes on Jesus.

Thank you for your post.
God's Peace be with you.

Re: Jesus is Coming Back for His Bride without Spot or Wrinkle
Tommy Hicks' End-times Vision

The following is a stunning vision given to American preacher Tommy Hicks (who was a major figure in the powerful 1954 Argentina Revival).

VISION OF THE BODY OF CHRIST AND THE END-TIME MINISTRIES


My message begins July 25, about 2:30 in the morning at Winnipeg, Canada. I had hardly fallen asleep when the vision and the revelation that God gave me came before me. The vision came three times, exactly in detail, the morning of July 25, 1961. I was so stirred and so moved by the revelation that this has changed my complete outlook upon the body of Christ, and upon the end-time ministries.

The greatest thing that the church of Jesus Christ has ever been given lies straight ahead. It is so hard to help men and women to realize and understand the thing that God is trying to give his people in the end times.

I received a letter several weeks ago from one of our native evangelists down in Africa, down in Nairobi. This man and his wife were on their way to Tanganyika. They could neither read nor could they write, but we had been supporting them for over two years. As they entered into the territory of Tanganyika, they came across a small village. The entire village was evacuating because of a plague that had hit the village. He came across natives that were weeping, and he asked them what was wrong.

They told him of their mother and father who had suddenly died, and they had been dead for three days. They had to leave. They were afraid to go in; they were leaving them in the cottage. He turned and asked them where they were. They pointed to the hut and he asked them to go with him, but they refused. They were afraid to go.

The native and his wife went to this little cottage and entered in where the man and woman had been dead for three days. He simply stretched forth his hand in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and spoke the man's name and the woman's name and said, "In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I command life to come back to your bodies." Instantaneously these two heathen people who had never known Jesus Christ as their Savior sat up and immediately began to praise God. The spirit and the power of God came into the life of those people.

To us that may seem strange and a phenomenon, but that is the beginning of these end-time ministries. God is going to take the do-nothings, the nobodies, the unheard-of, the no-accounts. He is going to take every man and every woman and he is going to give to them this outpouring of the Spirit of God.

In the book of Acts we read that "In the last days," God said, "I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh." I wonder if we realized what he meant when God said, "I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh." I do not think I fully realized nor could I understand the fullness of it, and then I read from the book of Joel: "Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain -" (Joel 2:23). It is not only going to be the rain, the former rain and the latter rain, but he is going to give to his people in these last days a double portion of the power of God!

As the vision appeared to me after I was asleep, I suddenly found myself in a great high distance. Where I was, I do not know. But I was looking down upon the earth. Suddenly the whole earth came into my view. Every nation, every kindred, every tongue came before my sight from the east and the west, the north and the south. I recognized every country and many cities that I had been in, and I was almost in fear and trembing as I beheld the great sight before me: and at that moment when the world came into view, it began to lightning and thunder.

As the lightning flashed over the face of the earth, my eyes went downward and I was facing the north. Suddenly I beheld what looked like a great giant, and as I stared and looked at it, I was almost bewildered by the sight. It was so gigantic and so great. His feet seemed to reach to the north pole and his head to the south. Its arms were stretched from sea to sea. I could not even begin to understand whether this be a mountain or this be a giant, but as I watched, I suddenly beheld a great giant. I could see his head was struggling for life. He wanted to live, but his body was covered with debris from head to foot, and at times this great giant would move his body and act as though it would even raise up at times. And when it did, thousands of little creatures seemed to run away. Hideous creatures would run away from this giant, and when he would become calm, they would come back.

All of a sudden this great giant lifted his hand towards heaven, and then it lifted its other hand, and when it did these creatures by the thousands seemed to flee away from this giant and go into the darkness of the night.

Slowly this great giant began to rise and as he did, his head and hands went into the clouds. As he rose to his feet he seemed to have cleansed himself from the debris and filth that was upon him, and he began to raise his hands into the heavens as though praising the Lord, and as he raised his hands, they went even unto the clouds.

Suddenly, every cloud became silver, the most beautiful silver I have ever known. As I watched this phenomenon it was so great I could not even begin to understand what it all meant. I was so stirred as I watched it, and I cried unto the Lord and I said, "Oh Lord, what is the meaning of this." and I felt as if I was actually in the Spirit and I could feel the presence of the Lord even as I was asleep.

And from those clouds suddenly there came great drops of liquid light raining down upon this mighty giant, and slowly, slowly, this giant began to melt, began to sink itself in the very earth itself, and as he melted, his whole form seemed to have melted upon the face of the earth, and this great rain began to come down. Liquid drops of light began to flood the very earth itself and as I watched this giant that seemed to melt, suddenly it became millions of people over the face of the earth. As I beheld the sight before me, people stood up all over the world! They were lifting their hands and they were praising the Lord.

At that very moment there came a great thunder that seemed to roar from the heavens. I turned my eyes toward the heavens and suddenly I saw a figure in white, in glistening white - the most glorious thing that I have ever seen in my entire life. I did not see the face, but somehow I knew it was the Lord Jesus Christ, and he stretched forth his hand, and as he did, he would stretch it forth to one, and to another, and to another. And as he stretched forth his hand upon the nations and the people of the world - men and women - as he pointed toward them, this liquid light seemed to flow from his hands into them, and a mighty anointing of God came upon them, and those people began to go forth in the name of the Lord.

I do not know how long I watched it. It seemed it went into days and weeks and months. And I beheld this Christ as he continued to stretch forth his hand; but there was a tragedy. There were many people as he stretched forth his hand that refused the anointing of God and the call of God. I saw men and women that I knew. People that I felt would certainly receive the call of God. But as he stretched forth his hand toward this one and toward that one, they simply bowed their head and began to back away. And each of those that seemed to bow down and back away, seemed to go into darkness. Blackness seemed to swallow them everywhere.

I was bewildered as I watched it, but these people that he had anointed, hundreds of thousands of people all over the world, in Africa, England, Russia, China, America, all over the world, the anointing of God was upon these people as they went forward in the name of the Lord. I saw these men and women as they went forth. They were ditch diggers, they were washerwomen, they were rich men, they were poor men. I saw people who were bound with paralysis and sickness and blindness and deafness. As the Lord stretched forth to give them this anointing, they became well, they became healed, and they went forth!

And this is the miracle of it - this is the glorious miracle of it - those people would stretch forth their hands exactly as the Lord did, and it seemed as if there was this same liquid fire in their hands. As they stretched forth their hands they said, "According to my word, be thou made whole."

As these people continued in this mighty end-time ministry, I did not fully realize what it was, and I looked to the Lord and said, "What is the meaning of this?" And he said, "This is that which I will do in the last days. I will restore all that the cankerworm, the palmerworm, the caterpillar - I will restore all that they have destroyed. This, my people, in the end times will go forth. As a mighty army shall they sweep over the face of the earth."

As I was at this great height, I could behold the whole world. I watched these people as they were going to and fro over the face of the earth. Suddenly there was a man in Africa and in a moment he was transported by the Spirit of God, and perhaps he was in Russia, or China or America or some other place, and vice versa. All over the world these people went, and they came through fire, and through pestilence, and through famine. Neither fire nor persecution, nothing seemed to stop them.

Angry mobs came to them with swords and with guns. And like Jesus, they passed through the multitudes and they could not find them, but they went forth in the name of the Lord, and everywhere they stretched forth their hands, the sick were healed, the blind eyes were opened. There was not a long prayer, and after I had reviewed the vision many times in my mind, and I thought about it many times, I realised that I never saw a church, and I never saw or heard a denomination, but these people were going in the name of the Lord of Hosts. Hallelujah!

As they marched forth in everything they did as the ministry of Christ in the end times, these people were ministering to the multitudes over the face of the earth. Tens of thousands, even millions seemed to come to the Lord Jesus Christ as these people stood forth and gave the message of the kingdom, of the coming kingdom, in this last hour. It was so glorious, but it seems as though there were those that rebelled, and they would become angry and they tried to attack those workers that were giving the message.

God is going to give the world a demonstration in this last hour as the world has never known. These men and women are of all walks of life, degrees will mean nothing. I saw these workers as they were going over the face of the earth. When one would stumble and fall, another would come and pick him up. There were no "big I" and "little you," but every mountain was brought low and every valley was exalted, and they seemed to have one thing in common - there was a divine love, a divine love that seemed to flow forth from these people as they worked together, and as they lived together. It was the most glorious sight that I have ever known. Jesus Christ was the theme of their life. They continued and it seemed the days went by as I stood and beheld this sight. I could only cry, and sometimes I laughed. It was so wonderful as these people went throughout the face of the whole earth, bringing forth in this last end time.

As I watched from the very heaven itself, there were times when great deluges of this liquid light seemed to fall upon great congregations, and that congregation would lift up their hands and seemingly praise God for hours and even days as the Spirit of God came upon them. God said, "I will pour my Spirit upon all flesh,"and that is exactly this thing. And to every man and every woman that received this power, and the anointing of God, the miracles
of God, there was no ending to it.

We have talked about miracles. We have talked about signs and wonders, but I could not help but weep as I read again this morning, at 4 o'clock this morning the letter from our native workers. This is only the evidence of the beginning for one man, a "do-nothing, an unheard-of," who would go and stretch forth his hand and say, "In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I command life to flow into your body." I dropped to my knees and began to pray again, and I said, "Lord, I know that this time is coming soon!"

And then again, as these people were going about the face of the earth, a great persecution seemed to come from every angle.

Suddenly there was another great clap of thunder, that seemed to resound around the world, and I heard again the voice, the voice that seemed to speak, "Now this is my people. This is my beloved bride." And when the voice spoke, I looked upon the earth and I could see the lakes and the mountains. The graves were opened and people from all over the world, the saints of all ages, seemed to be rising. And as they rose from the grave, suddenly all these people came from every direction. From the east and the west, from the north and the south, and they seemed to be forming again this gigantic body. As the dead in Christ seemed to be rising first, I could hardly comprehend it. It was so marvelous. It was so far beyond anything I could ever dream or think of.

But as this body suddenly began to form, and take shape again, it took shape again in the form of this mighty giant, but this time it was different. It was arrayed in the most beautiful gorgeous white. Its garments were without spot or wrinkle as its body began to form, and the people of all ages seemed to be gathered into this body, and slowly, slowly, as it began to form up into the very heavens, suddenly from the heavens above, the Lord Jesus came, and became the head, and I heard another clap of thunder that said, "This is my beloved bride for whom I have waited. She will come forth even tried by fire. This is she that I have loved from the beginning of time."

As I watched, my eyes suddenly turned to the far north, and I saw seemingly destruction: men and women in anguish and crying out, and buildings in destruction. Then I heard again, the fourth voice that said, "Now is My wrath being poured out upon the face of the earth." From the ends of the whole world, the wrath of God seemed to be poured out and it seemed that there were great vials of God's wrath being poured out upon the face of the earth. I can remember it as though it happened a moment ago. I shook and trembled as I beheld the awful sight of seeing the cities, and whole nations going down into destruction.

I could hear the weeping and wailing. I could hear people crying. They seemed to cry as they went into caves, but the caves in the mountains opened up.

They leaped into water, but the water would not drown them. There was nothing that could destroy them. They were wanting to take their lives, but they could not. Then again I turned my eyes to this glorious sight, this body arrayed in beautiful white, shining garments. Slowly, slowly, it began to lift from the earth, and as it did, I awoke. What a sight I had beheld! I had seen the end-time ministries - the last hour. Again on July 27, at 2:30 in the morning, the same revelation, the same vision came again exactly as it did before.

My life has been changed as I realised that we are living in that end time, for all over the world God is anointing men and women with this ministry. It will not be doctrine. It will not be a churchianity. It is going to be Jesus Christ. They will give forth the word of the Lord, and are going to say, "I heard it so many times in the vision and according to my word it shall be done."

Re: Jesus is Coming Back for His Bride without Spot or Wrinkle
Sounds like a lot of washing and ironing still needs to be done.

The empire of the false prophet is setting out to deplete the breath of life from believers--especially those who pose the greatest threat against darkness.

He is trying to dismantle the power of God as well as dismantle the people of God.
He is trying to shut down every light-bearing soul by causing division, strife, apathy and lethargy.

The world has become polluted with idolatry, self-seeking mentalities and multiple false religions.
There is a Holy Spirit many claim they have--but it is a counterfeit.

Only those who have believed and received Jesus Christ into their hearts, have the true Holy Spirit.


The biggest proof of this, is that the true Holy Spirit always points the way to Christ and Him only.
The counterfeit will point to false gods, false religions and try to keep you away from Christ.

Why Jesus Christ? It is His Blood that was poured out through His sacrifice that is the only way of receiving regeneration.
He willingly came to be a sacrifice for all--that is why He is referred to as the Lamb of God--the sacrificial Lamb.

But now he(Christ) has appeared once for all at the end of the ages to do away with sin by the sacrifice of himself.(Hebrews 9:26)

God requires a sacrifice to atone for sins.
It is Christ's Blood, only, that can do this.

How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God,
cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God!
(Hebrews 9:14)

When God looks down at the saved soul, He doesn't see color or race, or a creature of sin--He sees His creation covered by the blood of His Son.
Jesus is coming back.
He is coming back for His Bride without spot or wrinkle.
He is coming back for those who have believed that He is the only Way back to God.

If you feel that your garments are stained with sin, come to Jesus.
Be washed in the Blood of the Lamb.

Your garments can become spotless and white as snow.

So when the Bridegroom comes, your robe will be white.

"Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city.

Revelation 22:14
 Quoting: KoFFee_


Amen!! It's about Jesus! As you say, if we feel our garments are stained with sin (and there is absolutely no reason why we should feel that we are totally without sin), come to Jesus...yes! When we read the Bible, it's about Him. The Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world! Make way for the Kingdon of God is at hand! Jesus!

God Bless You, KoFFee.
Time is short - the rapture is so near.
May the words in your post, from your heart, where Jesus lives, as He lives in all hearts who believe in Him, make a difference in someone's life so that they may be saved before the wrath begins.
