Thoughts for Today

Your parents gave you a name - not a number - because you were not a piece of property to be owned, kept track of, and inventoried. "And Adam knew his wife again and she bare a son, and called his name Seth...." (Genesis 4:25)

Uncle Sam were really your uncle, he wouldn't tax you. So who is he?
"And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute? He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers? Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free. Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee." (Matthew 17:24-27)

The only people to have income tax exemptions and tax-free land in Pharaoh's Egypt were the false religious leaders. "Only the land of the priests bought he not for the priests had a portion assigned them of Pharaoh, and did eat their portion which Pharaoh gave them: wherefore they sold not their lands.” “And Joseph made it a law over the land of Egypt unto this day, that Pharaoh should have the fifth part except the land of the priests only, which became not Pharaoh's." (Genesis 47:22, 26)

If the personal number of the beast is a man's number, and his personal number is 666, what is your personal number? You know, don't you. "Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man and his number is Six hundred threescore and six." (Revelation 13:18)

Thoughts for Today

Many people think the Lord's Supper is only a little religious ceremony of eating a piece of bread followed by the taking of the cup. However, like many of the Lord Jesus' teachings, the spiritual application is really what it's all about. If you do not partake and ingest the word of Jesus Christ for its spiritual nutrition, like one does with natural food, you will have no spiritual life in you. (Read all about it in John Chapter 6) So, you can have a communion service every day if you'd like, but if you are not feasting on the word of God, it will profit you nothing. Communion is communicating with the Lord Jesus Christ, as in two or three gathered together in his name.

Cain was the first murderer and the first person to receive the mark, which was the mark of God's judgment to come. The righteous men who perceived Cain was an apostate - a marked man - left the arrest, trial, and execution of Cain unto the Lord. (Relate to Revelation 13 Mark of the Beast.) "And Cain said unto the LORD, My punishment is greater than I can bear. Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth and from thy face shall I be hid and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth and it shall come to pass, that every one that findeth me shall slay me. And the
LORD said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him." (Genesis 4:13-15)

The reference mark known as the dagger (†) is in the form of a cross. It is also called an obelisk. An obelisk is the image of the sun god, and a cross also represents the sun god on which our Lord Jesus Christ was crucified by Rome. "And so Pilate, willing to content the people, released Barabbas unto them, and delivered Jesus, when he had scourged him, to be crucified." (Mark 15:15) "And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was, JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS." (John 19:19)

Satan was the first one to start a war, which took place in heaven, and now he continues to start wars on earth, and use both sides like little boys play war - but with real people.

Cain was the first world priest and first world ruler. (Beast #2 and Beast #1: Revelation 13)
Cain as a priest: “And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD.” (Genesis 4:3)
Cain as a ruler: “And Cain knew his wife and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch.” (Genesis 4:17)

Golgotha means “place of the skull” where our Lord Jesus Christ was crucified. Perhaps Yale's Skull and Bones Society should be called the Golgotha Society - and for good reason. “And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha: Where they crucified him, and two other with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst.” (John 19:17-18)

Capitol (as in national and state capitol) comes from the word, Capitolium. The Capitolium was the temple of Jupiter, the god of gods, in ancient Rome. The capitol was the building where the legislature met, while the capital was the city where the temple was located. Think on it.

The Nazarenes were the first people who tried to kill Jesus Christ. Also, the early Christians did not call themselves “Nazarenes,” but their enemies called them Nazarenes. (Acts 24:5) It is incredible there is a denomination that goes by that name today.

Revelation 3:19-22 - Comments

Your wife probably doesn't love you anymore if she doesn't tell you a booger is protruding out of your nose, your fly is open, or your shirttail is hanging out.

Thoughts for Today

The scripture points out that the disciples of John the Baptist and others called him, “John Baptist” - as his first and last name.

“And she, being before instructed of her mother, said, Give me here John Baptist's head in a charger.” (Matthew 14:8)

“And John calling unto him two of his disciples sent them to Jesus, saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another? When the men were come unto him, they said, John Baptist hath sent us unto thee, saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another?” (Luke 7:19-20)

To be called a “Baptist” is to be a follower of John Baptist, the prophet who pointed to the Lamb of God. But some of the Baptists did not go on to follow Jesus Christ and become Christians. They did, however, continue to baptize by immersion, knowing only John's water baptism, but not the baptism of the Holy Ghost.

Today, the denominationalist who call themselves by his name, still major on water baptism and when they baptize, many only say, “in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.” Evidently they don't know the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. The apostle Peter knew: “Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.”

Judas Iscariot could not address Jesus as Lord. The best that he could call him was “master” (lower case), a common name for a common teacher. “And he that betrayed him had given them a token, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he take him, and lead him away safely. And as soon as he was come, he goeth straightway to him, and saith, Master, master and kissed him.”

The Lord Jesus said about Judas: “Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil? He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve.” (John 6:70-71)

How important is it to freely confess, to express, and try to convince others that Jesus is the Lord?  “The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” (Romans 10:8-9)

“But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ and the head of the woman is the man and the head of Christ is God.” (I Corinthians 11:3)

All you have to do is mention this down at the ol' synagogue and you'll start catching a lot of flak, especially by liberated women. Read the scripture carefully and in context. Do you see? It is not a commandment to do - it's just a fact - whether you know it or not, think it or not, or care about it or not, or believe it or not. It is just the way it is, and there are probably a lot of people, male and female, who are in rebellion about it. The head of Christ is God - fact. The head of every man is Christ - fact. The head of the woman is the man – fact.

The reason people receive the mark of the beast is boiled down to a simple truth: The marked of the beast people are the people who fear the beast more than they fear God.

“And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?” (Revelation 13:4)

“But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell yea, I say unto you, Fear him.” (Luke 12:5)
Fear God, and give glory to him for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.” (Revelation 14:7)

Revelation 3:17-18c

 Joseph in Egypt was a slave as well as Daniel, who was one of the presidents in Babylonia, yet they were good stewards for the positions they were in. Are you a good steward in your position and got the real riches tried in the fire?

Revelation 3:17-18b - Comments

Are you ashamed of your big and ornate church building; your favorite preacher who you think has more authority than Jesus Christ; or the way of your denomination which is the wrong way? Well, you ought to be.

Thought for Today

If hell is “everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels” (Matthew 25:41), then people like Judas Iscariot go to everlasting fire because they are the devil's angels. You might have to think on that one a while to accept, and, also, why God doesn't love everyone. God doesn't love devils.

“Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil? He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve.” (John 6:70-71)

“As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.” (Romans 9:13)
