The Premise
Back to Top

I believe there will be at least one prophet to preach in the last days, perhaps several, even. But it won't be like many might expect. Prophets are never liked by those who the prophet is sent to, nor is he what they expected, which is a pat on the back instead of some discipline. But the essence of this article is a huge unprecedented message and to my best knowledge, the first to put these scriptures together and explain their relation to each other. I have had it notarized for its existence and date. Those powers can fake notarized stuff  but I can not.

I expect this will eventually catch on and everyone will be making a claim. We will have to wait and see. As we all know, there is a false prophet, the antichrist, fake Jesus, due to appear. Its is God's will that He has someone speak for Him and His interests? I'm thinking it might be. You can decide for your self.


Jeremiah the Prophet 
Back to Top

To make it clear, prophets are planned in advance. This is partly because they tailor-made for whatever purpose it is that they must come and preach, and weather the tests that will be put upon them and you can be damn sure that every prophet will be tested by Satan. In fact, there was not a prophet in Israel that was ever really appreciated and just about all of them were eventually killed. Jeremiah was one of the few, if not the only, that was allowed to live out his days in Egypt, I assume, as that was where he was taken after being dragged along by rebellious Jews. Jeremiah  preached in Jerusalem and to the king and his men and all the prominent men of Jerusalem and Judah, before it was conquered. Jeremiah was of the line of the tribe of Levi, who made up the priesthood.

Levites could live anywhere in Israel but most were in the territories of Judah and Benjamin. Levi was not assigned specific land and settled where they wanted, and they serve in the temple twice a year while the High priest lived in Jerusalem or near by.

Revised Standard Version
Jeremiah 1:

1 The words of Jeremiah, the son of Hilkiah, of the priests who were in Anathoth in the land of Benjamin,

2 to whom the word of the LORD (Jehovah) came in the days of Josiah the son of Amon, king of Judah, in the thirteenth year of his reign.

4  Now the word of the LORD (Jehovah) came to me saying,

5 "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you;
     I appointed you a prophet to the nations."

>>I probably first thought about the next scripture in Matthew 20 back in the 80s, as well as its appearance in the other gospels. It stuck in my head. I did recognize what was being indicated to some degree.<<


At the Lord's Left & Right Hands
Back to Top

NKJV:  Matthew 20:

20 Then the mother of Zebedee’s sons came to Him with her sons, kneeling down and asking something from Him.

21 And He said to her, "What do you wish?" She said to Him, "Grant that these two sons of mine may sit,
     one on Your right hand and the other on the left, in Your kingdom."

22 But Jesus answered and said, "You do not know what you ask. Are you able to drink the cup that I am
     about to drink, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?" They said to Him, "We are able."

23 So He said to them, "You will indeed drink My cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with;
     but to sit on My right hand and on My left
     is not Mine to give, but it is for those for whom it is prepared by My Father."


>>Jesus let us all in on something that took place, almost certainly before man was created, knowing what was to take place in time, and that Jesus would have to die and ransom back fallen mankind from Adam's foreseen sin. At this time, the Father and the son foresaw, not only the buying back of humanity from sin and death, but also the very last closing days of the near end, when the antichrist was destined to appear for 7 years, by the will of Satan. The key phrase might well be "Not mine to give" and "for those for whom it is prepared by my father."

From that, he says those, in plural. Prepared long in advance, by the Father, and not the son. I gather they were going to be sometime after the Apostles and likely, I suspect, in the last days, the most trying time in the history of mankind, the time when mankind would be tested as never before, so the rewards were also very big, I suspect for those at that time of the last days.<<

NKJV:  Mark 10:

35 Then James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came to Him, saying, "Teacher, we want You
     to do for us whatever we ask."

36 And He said to them, "What do you want Me to do for you?"

37 They said to Him, "Grant us that we may sit, one on Your right hand and the other on Your left,
     in Your glory."

38 But Jesus said to them, "You do not know what you ask. Are you able to drink the cup that I drink,
     and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?"

39 They said to Him, "We are able." So Jesus said to them, "You will indeed drink the cup that I drink, and with the baptism I am baptized with you will be baptized;

40 "but to sit on My right hand and on My left
      is not Mine to give, but it is for those for whom it is prepared."

>> Both Matthew and Mark have the exact same account. Matthew was an Apostle but Mark was not an Apostle but was instructed directly by Peter in writing his gospel. But both accounts are exactly the same in the larger underlined text.

>> The Father put all things in the hands of the son, except this sitting at the right and left hands of Jesus and the day and time of the final judgment commonly called Armageddon by some. I often wondered about who would qualify and why. The great persecutions had some great leaders. The last days do not seem as glorious. Quality has only decreased, really. Are there any exceptions I wondered.

>> The irony of the last days is that although the quality of people as a whole would poor, they would have a far better contrast of right and wrong, and of sanity and insanity and absurdity. This contrast would make the choice of Satan or God far easier to distinguish and accept. There would be no excuse for making the wrong decision. From this would come some appointed for this time. That some sort of guidance or instruction would only be right! But this by no means, indicates that most will like or listen to anyone sent to them by the will and grace of the Father and His son.


The Faithful & Wise Servant
Back to Top


NKJV: Matthew 24:                    Aug. 25  017

45 "Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his master made ruler over his household, to give them food in due season?

>>"a faithful" should be "the faithful." The Greek definitive article is clearly in the Greek NT text. Case closed! Half the translations get it right and half wrong. A wise servant is not specific and allows for more than one. The wise servant could indicate only one. Surely God has more than one servant on earth taking care of the Father's affairs, right?

>>But below takes on a little different tone as Jesus refers to a specific servant, one doing as told. As well, that servant ends up being appointed by Jesus, over all his goods. You might say, he would sit on the right hand of Jesus. I hope I do not have to explain what an honor that would be.<<

46 "Blessed is that servant whom his master, when he comes, will find so doing.

47 "Assuredly, I say to you that he will make him ruler over all his goods.

>> Jesus then  addresses the scenario of those who ignore their responsibility toward God and misuse in a big way their place among God's people as prominent leaders of those in the faith. False Shepherds! Liars and deceivers of God's people.

48 "But if that evil servant says in his heart, ‘My master is delaying his coming,’

49 "and begins to beat his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunkards,

50 "the master of that servant will come on a day when he is not looking for him and at an hour that he is not aware of,

51 "and will cut him in two and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

>> Those disregarding their obligations to God to care for His Sheep, will have long ceased believing in the Father. They figure they can do as they please and they do. But their day is coming and they will not see it coming.

NKJV: Matthew 25:

14 "For the kingdom of heaven is like a man traveling to a far country, who called his own servants
     and delivered his goods to them.

15 "And to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one, to each according to his own ability;
     and immediately he went on a journey.

>>Below, Jesus gives and appoints according to each one's ability. to one he give a full 5 talents and in return the slave make 5 more from it and is rewarded for that.<<

16 "Then he who had received the five talents went and traded with them, and made another five talents.

17 "And likewise he who had received two gained two more also.

>>Since Jesus gives the next one just 1 talent, he does not expect as much from this one, But still expects at least a small return on a small investment.<<

18 "But he who had received one went and dug in the ground, and hid his lord’s money.

19 "After a long time the lord of those servants came and settled accounts with them.

20 "So he who had received five talents came and brought five other talents, saying, ‘Lord, you delivered
     to me five talents; look, I have gained five more talents besides them.’

21 "His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things,
     I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’

22 "He also who had received two talents came and said, ‘Lord, you delivered to me two talents; look,
     I have gained two more talents besides them.’

23 "His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things,
     I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’

>>The lord, Jesus, tests his servants to see who merits what or not. Those who do well, are entrusted with more, having proven themselves. But below, the servant who Jesus did not expect much of and did not entrust a lot to him, but did expect some small return, according the slave's ability, does not even produce a small amount of return and lets the money rot in the ground rather than investing it.<<

24 "Then he who had received the one talent came and said, ‘Lord, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping
     where you have not sown, and gathering where you have not scattered seed.

25 ‘And I was afraid, and went and hid your talent in the ground. Look, there you have what is yours.’

26 "But his lord answered and said to him, ‘You wicked and lazy servant, you knew that I reap where
     I have not sown, and gather where I have not scattered seed.

27 ‘So you ought to have deposited my money with the bankers, and at my coming I would have
     received back my own with interest.

28 ‘Therefore take the talent from him, and give it to him who has ten talents.

>>Jesus expects results from every one of his people. He expects more from some than he does of others. But everyone should be found at least making progress, even if it is slow and difficult. Those who betray their positions of leadership and influence will be severely punished for their betrayal of their offices and responsibilities they held while alive on earth.

What this also means is that not all have the same ability. Some will  naturally produce more than others in skill, in respect of others, or mercy and kindness, in effort, as well as toughness and discipline. Not all are cut out for the big positions. Everyone should accept what they given and live up to that. Some think they deserve more than they do. So we have to self examine ourselves and make sure we have evaluated ourselves appropriately/accurately.

In the end, some will end up looking really good, others just happy to be alive and some could be resentful, too. It's a long road that does not have a turn in it.<<

29 ‘For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have,
     even what he has will be taken away.
30 ‘And cast the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’

>>Next, Luke's account recalls another instance of Jesus using this basic parable, this time modifying it to fit another aspect.

NKJV: Luke 12:

41 Then Peter said to Him, "Lord, do You speak this parable only to us, or to all people?"

42 And the Lord said, "Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his master will make ruler
     over his household, to give them their portion of food in due season?

43 "Blessed is that servant whom his master will find so doing when he comes.

44 "Truly, I say to you that he will make him ruler over all that he has.

>>Well, here again, Jesus addresses what seems to be a specific servant class who is appointed by his master over the master's household, to see they are properly cared for with "food" and such and keep household in order. But should there be another servant as below, who does not perform his duties well and right, then that steward is severely punished, destroyed forever.<<

45 "But if that servant says in his heart, ‘My master is delaying his coming,’ and begins to beat the male
     and female servants, and to eat and drink and be drunk,

46 "the master of that servant will come on a day when he is not looking for him, and at an hour
     when he is not aware, and will cut him in two and appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.

47 "And that servant who knew his master’s will, and did not prepare himself or do according to his will,
     shall be beaten with many stripes.

>>Below, we have a 3rd category, the servant who did not understand what he was doing and screwed up a little. He will be called on it and place in a spot that is equal to him limited ability, but he will not be destroyed. Considered perhaps merely as kind of the dumb or clueless side and allowed the chance to change, improve and make up for his mistakes, perhaps biting off more than he could chew, previously.<<

48 "But he who did not know, yet committed things deserving of stripes, shall be beaten with few. For everyone
     to whom much is given, from him much will be required; and to whom much has been committed,
     of him they will ask the more.

>>The warning just above is that if a lot is given to you and expected of you as result, then you had best be found giving it your all and your best. To be granted or in possession of great ability and not make use of it in God's behalf of His little sheep that He deeply cares about . . . well, you might as well tie a large millstone round you neck and jump into the sea.<<

49 "I came to send fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled!

50 "But I have a baptism to be baptized with, and how distressed I am till it is accomplished!

51 "Do you suppose that I came to give peace on earth? I tell you, not at all, but rather division.

52 "For from now on five in one house will be divided: three against two, and two against three.

53 "Father will be divided against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother,
       mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law."

>>Above, 49-53, families will be divided and even at war with each other. The households will be on fire, so to speak.<<


Who Do You Love Most?
Back to Top

NKJV: Matthew 10:            August 10, 017

34 "Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword.

35 "For I have come to ‘set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother,
     and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law’;

36 "and ‘a man’s enemies will be those of his own household.’

Strong’s Greek Dictionary of the NT

3615 οἰκιακός oikiakos oy-kee-ak-os’

from 3614; n m;

AV-of (one’s) household 2; 2

1) one belonging to the house

2) one under control of the master of a house, whether a son or a servant

37 "He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me.

38 "And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me.

39 "He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it.

40 "He who receives you receives Me, and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me.

41 "He who receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward. And he who receives a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward.

42 "And whoever gives one of these little ones only a cup of cold water in the name of a disciple, assuredly, I say to you, he shall by no means lose his reward."

>>I dated the above account August 10, 017 because for the longest time, going back to maybe 2010, I meant to look into the original Greek word for "household" but did not get round to it till I just mentioned, almost 3 months ago, as of writing at this point (Oct. 27 017).

When I did get around to it, it confirmed what I had long suspected. It applied to subordinates, someone other than the head of the house. This seemed significant to me. Some might find themselves persecuted by the rest of their family for the stand they take for God and His Cause and are rejected by their families.

As Jesus pointed out, those who love family members more than Jesus are nor worthy of Jesus. And who love their church or congregation and social groups more than Jesus, are noteworthy of Jesus. To love Jesus and be loved by him, you must be willing to face rejection and being ostracized and scorned by those you once knew or cared about.

>>Ah, things get real good now. There is a lot of detail in the account below.


The Key of David
Back to Top

NKJV: Revelation 3:

6 "He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches."’

7 "And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write, ‘These things says He who is holy, He who is true, "He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens":

8 "I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name.

9 "Indeed I will make those of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews and are not, but lie—indeed I will make them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you.

>>Jesus, who opens doors that can't be shut and shut so that it can not be opened, opens a door for a prophet and make God's enemies worship at the feet of this one,  or group, being forces to recognize this prophet as being loved by Jesus. I  have no idea what this will involve, but it would be quite the event as I am assuming it is the biggest, most powerful names forced to come and bow in submission. Will it be public? Private? Publicized? I have no idea. We will know when it happens. Ah, but that is not all. Note verse 10 next:
<<

10 "Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.

>> Christians are to be put into prisons and camps for 3.5 years. But this prophet, who persevered, is rewarded with being kept from the hour of trial. The whole 7 year period? Just the last 3.5 years? I don't know. I'm no prophet that I know. But this verse becomes very important as we later cover a passage of Jesus that may open the for for others to also be spared the hour of trial.<<

11 "Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown.

12 "He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more. And I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God. And I will write on him My new name.

13 "He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches."’

>>Let him who has an ear take notice. The message is meant for whoever is able to recognize it because Jesus will only open the eyes of those intended to understand it. Those worthy of being exempted from the hour of trial.<<


A Prophet's Reward
Back to Top

NKJV: Matthew 10:

40 “He who receives you receives Me, and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me.

41 “He who receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward. And he who receives a righteous man in the name of a

righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward.

42 “And whoever gives one of these little ones only a cup of cold water in the name of a disciple, assuredly, I say to you, he shall by no means lose his reward.”

>>Regarding the 3 verses above, whoever receives a prophet, recognizing that he is a prophet, shall receive a prophet's reward, even though not prophets themselves. What? Really? That is what it seems to suggest. And if a prophet is to be spared the hour of trial, as best as I can tell, those receiving him and recognizing him as a prophet, may also be spared the hour of trial. Am I insane? Possibly, but that does seem to be the general suggestion as best as I can tell.

And he who receives and recognizes at least a righteous man as best as he can tell, will receive the reward of a righteous man. Even someone merely offering a drink of cold water will be accepted by God and rewarded. How do I best explain this?

It is my guess that so dull will the minds and hearts of most be, that many may not recognize the prophet or prophets, despite sound teaching and explanation, sound reasoning, maybe even being recognized by Jesus' enemies who  are forced to bow to him? It may be that God and His Son decided that so ostracized would this prophet be that They decided to substantially increase the reward for anyone that does recognize those sent by Jesus in some special capacity.

They may have reasoned that if avoiding 3.5 years in camps or prisons seemed desirable enough, that some might try hard to grasp who might be a prophet or not, or led by God's spirit or not. All the same, since many will be in camps and captivity for 3.5 years, it looks to me like they have a chance to avoid that if they show enough effort to be able to discern the outstanding qualifications that seem to be in someone or several or small group.

And if they do not discern that one or few, then 3.5 years of captivity, though not the worst of all things, and a lot better than dying like many on the outside will be doing, It will still be far more pleasant having freedom and protection from the horrors that will be taking place.<<

NKJV: Isaiah 22:

20 ‘Then it shall be in that day, That I will call My servant Eliakim the son of Hilkiah;

21 I will clothe him with your robe And strengthen him with your belt; I will commit your responsibility into his hand.
     He shall be a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem And to the house of Judah.

>>Verse 22 below, is the verse essentially quoted in Revelation that we just considered just above in Rev. Chap. 3<<

22 The key of the house of David I will lay on his shoulder; So he shall open, and no one shall shut; And he shall shut, and no one shall open.

23 I will fasten him as a peg in a secure place, And he will become a glorious throne to his father’s house.

24 ‘They will hang on him all the glory of his father’s house, the offspring and the posterity, all vessels of small quantity, from the cups to all the pitchers.

25 ‘In that day,’ says the LORD of hosts, ‘the peg that is fastened in the secure place will be removed and be cut down and fall, and the burden that was on it will be cut off; for the LORD has spoken.’ ”

>>The above 6 verses apply to Jesus 1st and foremost, yet Jesus used the same words to apply to someone else as well, referred to as a peg in a secure place, perhaps. Many prophecies have double meanings, a primary fulfillment and a secondary lesser fulfillment, usually the first on to be fulfilled and then the latter more important.<<


The Lowest of Men Shines
Back to Top

 >>The lesson to the king of Babylon was that God puts whoever He wants, into power and that it was not really the king of Babylon who did it, himself. Verse 17 below, the lowest of men, likely refers to Jesus, while on earth. However, once Jesus died remaining faithful while challenged in the flesh to the point of death, he then was appointed by God over all things, as Jesus was before becoming a man. However, Jesus then says he will give someone else all his belongings to administrate as Jesus "right hand."<<

NKJV: Daniel 4:

17 ‘This decision is by the decree of the watchers, And the sentence by the word of the holy ones,
     In order that the living may know That the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, and Gives it to
     whomever He will, And sets over it the lowest of men.’

>>Since Jesus is passing on his belongings and duties to another, this might well apply to him as well. But it is not important if it does not.<<

32 And they shall drive you from men, and your dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field.
     They shall make you eat grass like oxen; and seven times shall pass over you, until you know
     that the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, and gives it to whomever He chooses."

Daniel 12:

1 "At that time Michael shall stand up, The great prince who stands watch over the sons
   of your people; And there shall be a time of trouble, Such as never was since there was a nation,
   Even to that time. And at that time your people shall be delivered, Every one who is found
   written in the book.

2 And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, Some to everlasting life,
   Some to shame and everlasting contempt.

3 Those who are wise shall shine Like the brightness of the firmament, And those who turn many
   to righteousness Like the stars forever and ever.

4 "But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro,
     and knowledge shall increase."

>>Its just worth noting that those delivered as righteous will really shine . . . but not before the end comes, perhaps, except maybe for a few or one, who Jesus forces his enemies to bow to this one. But it might not be publically known when it happens. Does Jesus make them bow to his choice so that he knows who he is, or are they forced to bow so that others will understand this is who Jesus loved and appointed as his foremost representative on earth. Or perhaps it will be small handful that will be bowed to, united even as the Apostles were.<<

8 Although I heard, I did not understand. Then I said, "My lord, what shall be the end of these things?

9 And he said, "Go your way, Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.

10 "Many shall be purified, made white, and refined, but the wicked shall do wickedly;
       and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand.

>>In the time of the end, the wise shall understand. But not the wicked. So the wise are a sizable number, perhaps not fully free of misunderstanding, but with enough to please God's expectations. But among the wise, there is gong to be one or more, who will be outstanding, who will be prophets. But that might only indicate exceptional understanding to guide others. Maybe there will  be more to it. We'll know when it happens.

Below is more interesting info regarding those who are not married and spoken of as being metaphorically eunuchs, due to not marrying and serving God instead. It may be that God was also referring to the settlement of Qumran, where the Dead Sea Scrolls were written over time and hidden away in caves. There are many who advocate for breeding as an obligation and requirement. While God did tell Adam and Eve to breed and fill the earth, this does not mean that anyone sins by not marrying. It is not mandatory.

Further, it is clear that anyone sensing that mankind has gone insane, they might avoid marriage for that reason, and give their time to God.

But God wants these ones to be aware of how much He appreciates their decisions to serve Him with their time and energy. He promises them something far more impressive than a family lineage/legacy in verse 5 to follow. These 5 verses are lot like the ones above in Daniel, of the righteous shining.<<

NKJV   Isaiah 56:

4 For thus says the LORD (Jehovah): “To the eunuchs who keep My Sabbaths, And choose what pleases Me,
   And hold fast My covenant,

5 Even to them I will give in My house And within My walls a place and a name Better than that of sons and daughters;
   I will give them an everlasting name That shall not be cut off.

6 “Also the sons of the foreigner Who join themselves to the LORD, to serve Him, And to love the name of the LORD,
     to be His servants — Everyone who keeps from defiling the Sabbath, And holds fast My covenant — 

7 Even them I will bring to My holy mountain, And make them joyful in My house of prayer.
   Their burnt offerings and their sacrifices Will be accepted on My altar; For My house shall
   be called a house of prayer for all nations.”

8 The Lord GOD, who gathers the outcasts of Israel, says, “Yet I will gather to him Others besides
   those who are gathered to him.”

>>God also opens the door to all the people of all the nations to symbolic Israel, Christians from all the nations gathered.<<

NKJV   John 14:

10 “Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works.

11 “Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves.

12 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.

>>There is a lot in that green text quote. Jesus was talking to the Apostles in this account. So when Jesus speaks of "he who believes in Jesus" will do the works that Jesus does and even more or greater. Jesus came, primarily, to die as a ransom for mankind and institute the opening of the way for all to be redeemed from sin and death. But as well, Jesus was going to install the New covenant that was promised by Moses.

Of course, the Apostles could have been the fulfillment of that as they raised people from the dead and instructed the people. But enough of the previous scriptures I have quoted show someone or a group of someone's as accepting the surrender of Jesus' enemies and being a prophet. More on that soon.

Part of the problem is that while Jesus began the New covenant and got it on its feet through the Apostles, the real important time was going to be the last days and alerting people to the truth, long since corrupted by Satan. Jesus wants to make it clear of who he approves of, whether an individual or a number of individuals, doubtless working together.

These people of the last days are going to be instrumental in administering the teachings of the bible and what is happening, I gather, before it is even happening, either shortly before or maybe even earlier. What can not be certain is whether people are going to buy it or not. As I recall, they killed Jesus when he came along. So what are the odds many will not like these "prophets."

What works will be done in final times? Obviously lots of understanding of the scriptures and what is to happen. Works for Jesus, the Apostles and even some prophets, included miracles. Will the prophet or prophets also do miracles, even as Moses did against Pharaoh and his Magician-priests? I guess we will have to wait and see. Normally, prophets perform at least a few miracles. But it could be nothing more than the precise understanding that has long eluded mankind and Christians, too, until the last days and then becomes clear as the veil is lifted.

I can say this. I am sure there will be more than enough evidence to show who is such a person or persons. But whether many will believe or not, remains.<<

13 “And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

14 “If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.

>>Could verse 14 be a key? This person, when he asks, Jesus answers him and does what he asks. Was verses 13 and 14 meant for this one or few?<<

15 “If you love Me, keep My commandments."


Who Inherits all Things?

Revelation 21:

KJV:   

5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me,
   Write: for these words are true and faithful.

6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end.
   I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.

7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

>>He . . . shall inherit all things? He and others like him? Right?<<

NKJV:

6 And He said to me, "It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End.
   I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts.

7 "He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son.

Geneva Bible:  

6 And he said unto me, It is done, I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end.
   I will give to him that is a thirst, of the well of the water of life freely.

7 He that overcometh, shall inherit all things, and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.


My Own Speculations
Back to Top

Israel was led out of Egypt by 1 man, Moses, and one God, Jehovah, thru his Son, in all likelihood. Samuel was both Prophet and Judge and the only one in his time. Elijah was the sole prophet in his time, and Elisha was his understudy. When it was time for Elijah to go, Elisha took his place. Isaiah was the prophet in his day. Jeremiah was the sole prophet in his day.

Ezekiel was the sole profit raised up from those captured of the northern ten tribes of Israel who were carted off by Assyria to the land of the Medes. There Ezekiel preached to exiled Israel and recorded God's words to be turned over to the temple priesthood.

Daniel was a prophet in Babylon under Nebuchadnezzer. Only Daniel. Hananiah/Shadrach, Mishael/Meshach, Azariah/Abednego were high ranking servants of the king, but not prophets. But they were spared the fire, which was pretty obvious proof of their acceptance and approval by God. In the case of Jesus, he as in charge and taught and authorized the 12.

The apostles were each sent to different places to preach, teach, and perform miracles as evidence of their being from God, so to speak. Being from God, the important thing was to listen to them and learn from them.

It does seem that for the most part, there is usually just one person with an individual assignment. The Apostles did converse and cooperate with each other, but it was the spirit that was guiding each one, individually. No one accounted to each other. They all accounted to Jesus and were guided by the spirit's leadings.

It's a sticky mess to ask men to work together without the spirit guiding and assigning. I assume that the spirit would be active at very final end of the last days. but I would not be surprised if there were one man in particular, that stood out among his peers. Jesus does speak of someone sitting his right hand and being given all his belongings.

But it goes without saying, that most things will probably not fully discerned until the proper time to be revealed. Part of this might have been required by Satan in the negotiations about the things to take place in the last days. You can be damned sure that every last detail of those final days was discussed and debated and things agreed to. Satan does not want people too well informed ahead of time. He wants us a little bit unprepared to test our raw core gut nature.

So some will recognize those who stand out in the eyes of God, but many may not, as works are of so subtle a nature, yet clearly beyond the normal. Those who can see these subtleties are the ones who will discern a prophet. Many will come thru the camps of internment and manage. It won't be that bad, is my guess. The main purpose it to keep them from the biggest amount of harm as the greatest killing of all time takes place.

We have been given enough info that we will not be caught off guard if we are awake and vigilant. But the apathetic are not likely to proper and survive. Somewhere between those 2 extremes will produce those to survive into the thousand year reign of Christ in peace so that we can learn. Some will learn and some will coast and be caught just going thru the motions and fail the test of Satan at the end of the thousand years.


Why Did I Wait?
Back to Top

I had begun to recognize some of these scriptures back around maybe 2004. Jesus mentioning that who sits at his right hand was not his to give and was already prepared for by His Father. That was fascinating. I recognized that one way back in my JW Kingdom Hall days of the 80s. But I was not sure about its implications. Then near to 2004, I began to wonder more as I discerned far more things that no one seemed to be grasping. But an awful lot was still very unclear. It was when I moved to Biddeford with my father in 2011, that slowly, some things got me to wonder. But no real light yet. It was the release of the info of the 2 Hampstead kids in February 2015, that scriptures started to stand out and seem like a veil was being lifted a little.

Then I was coming across scriptures that suddenly jumped out at me. I wanted to talk about it, but I was concerned that once this stuff got out, that everyone and his brother was going to claim to be a prophet or whatever. I did mention genetic tweaking by God to raise prophets for specific purposes. But I thought it best to wait until it all revealed itself to the world. Then we would all know. But it was last week when I sat down at the breakfast table that things started come to me.

I thought, if people are to be looking for a prophet, perhaps with the hope of being spared (maybe) 3.5 years in FEMA camps or similar, that they should know ahead of time and be looking for signs and trying to understand the bible better. Things seem to be really moving now. I can't imagine that things can go on much longer before WW3, economic collapse, and of course, the UFO alien invasion of some sort, that is really humans pretending. And most of all, the arrival of the antichrist/false Christ.

So I felt it was my duty to get this out and see what happens. Give people a chance to give more thought to what might go down. And if prophets were to be revealed, someone should discern it before it happens. So I went hard to work this week to get this put together and get it up on the net. And let the chips fall where they may. Things can only get more clear with each passing day.

--------------------------------------------------------

What if many do claim to be prophets? Well, you could say that anyone spreading the word of God could be loosely said to be a prophet. But the Temple had prophets and yet none of them had any great messages or wrote scrolls for God, except perhaps Ezra or possibly Samuel, which then got compiled by Jeremiah, maybe.

But really, The Bible, God, and prophets have always had many opposers and false prophets. Its just part of the territory and job. The job is to get the message out. That it quite possibly holds open the way to avoid 3.5 years in some sort of incarceration in camps or prisons made it essential that I get this out.

Another big concern for me is that most so called Christians trust their church and/denominational leaders to be warned and I believe that is totally wrong. The Churches have been long overcome and are designed to keep their flocks from understanding the truth. This message has not come thru churches and denominations. It comes thru independent "free-lance" Christians. Even Prophets were not accountable to the Temple. Their assignment came from God, not the high priest, and they did what they did, without consulting the temple. They did deposit scrolls God had them write in the temple for the priests to keep. This is how we got the Bible.

In many respects, the Priesthood was installed by God to exist as a library of records from the prophets. Any agent of God was essentially a prophet. God called Abraham a prophet and he did receive at least 2 prophecies. So church going people need to look beyond their "temples" and churches their leaders and use the Bible to understand what is to come.

I have suggested many things here, but every one of them has extensive scriptures to support what I suggest as most likely to soon happen. And to be honest, I know of no other that has brought all these scriptures together and pointed to something that I am unaware of anyone else suggesting to the degree that I have. But some will perceive it and believe it, I suspect. These may well be prophets.

Who is it that Jesus is going to listen to? Time will tell. Anyway, I have washed the blood from my hands when I get this up. I have blown the horn and alerted of the approaching enemies and time running out. It ought to be interesting to see if any will take notice of this.

As it seems at this time, nearly everyone is asleep as Jesus said would be the case. To the best of my knowledge, no one has ever published on this matter to the depth that I have. I have had this notarized to prove when it was finished and put up on my site, afterward.

Seek the Kingdom now, like never before. Another veil has been lifted. More to come. We are very close now.

I hear that Nov. 4 is going to be EMP attack simulation/drill. So its yet another thing that will pass without event, but if it does end up something interesting Like Steve Job's dream/vision he related and circulates, then  this goes up just in time. Bring it on!

I will be getting this notarized at the time of completion and have the article on the web by the date notarized, or perhaps a day earlier. The notarized version it so verfiy the date and state at that date. Thereafter, any updates will only be reflected on the web and not notarized. The natorization in only to show when I first uploaded this, so that if any should say, we publised this first, I will have verified evidence of when I do so. I know of no one having brought these many scriptures together and elaborated on them.

Updates & Additions            Nov 14 017

NKJV  Matthew 10:

24  “A disciple is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his master.

25  “It is enough for a disciple that he be like his teacher, and a servant like his master. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more will they call those of his household!

26  “Therefore do not fear them. For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known.

27  “Whatever I tell you in the dark, speak in the light; and what you hear in the ear, preach on the housetops.

28  “And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

Above v. 25, Jesus is called Beelzebub, among other things. Jesus said we should not be surprise if we are called the same and hated the same. It should be expected. My point here, in particular is that no one should be expecting any prophets to be liked or accepted. In fact, many of God's people might not like or accept a phrophet who is apt to question or disupte most things belived by the masses today, or that are popular among the masses. Hence, it is my suspicion that God sweetened the reward for honoring a prophet, by listenting to what he has to say.

Put another way, if God/Jesus intends to spare his most favored ones, but keeping them from the hour ot trial coming upon the whole earth and anyone giving one of these even a cold soothing drink of water in the heat, because they believe he is a prophet, they too, will get a prophet's reward, which I am assuming is them also being spared the 3.5 years in a concentration camp. I am repeating this from earlier in this article.

Below is another Apostle's account that is somewhat similar. But I draw attention to verse 20 and will pick up after that.

NKJV  John 13:

14  “If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet.

15  “For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you.

16  “Most assuredly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master; nor is he who is sent greater than he who sent him.

17  “If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them.

18  “I do not speak concerning all of you. I know whom I have chosen; but that the Scripture may be fulfilled, ‘He who eats bread with Me has lifted up his heel against Me.’

19  “Now I tell you before it comes, that when it does come to pass, you may believe that I am He.

20  “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who receives whomever I send receives Me; and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me.”

Jesus will be sending at least one person and perhaps a few gathered to make the will of Jesus and the Father known, Because churches have not been doing it. The single best way to dscern someone sent is to compare the scriptures to what they say. In fact, they should be quoting plenty of scriptures and explaining them as plainly as they can.

NKJV  John 5:

40 “But you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life.

41 “I do not receive honor from men.

42 “But I know you, that you do not have the love of God in you.

43 “I have come in My Father’s name, and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, him you will receive.

44 “How can you believe, who receive honor from one another, and do not seek the honor that comes from the only God?

45 “Do not think that I shall accuse you to the Father; there is one who accuses you — Moses, in whom you trust.

46 “For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me; for he wrote about Me.

47 “But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?”

It is said of verse 43 by many Bible scholars of the past, that it refers to the Jews not receiving Jesus AND that they will be happy to receive the antichrist-false prophet, false Messiah. I agree. But what is said by Jesus is that he comes in the Father's name. In Matthew 10:40 considered earlier, "he who received me also receives Him who sent me. We would have to assume this of a prophet, too. If he comes in the name of the Father and the Son and brings the same message as is in the Bible, he should be respected for that.

NKJV  1 Thessalonians:

15 For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep.

16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first.

17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.

18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.

Some will be alive when the Lord arrives and they will be caught up together, and transformed into spirits, even as God, Jesus, and the angels all are. They will never have to die. That is a unique privelege that humans before them did not have. This, among other things, is the reward of a prophet, and so I assume, anyone who recognizes a prophet and show the proper respect to he who comes in the name of the lord . . . by listneing to them, among other things.

Truth1 >>I want to urge here that my prophecy series is really essential to put many of the accounts in this article into better perspective. I link to it at the end of this article "God's Plan page."

I think the next account is an important one. I see the attitude already.

NKJV Matthew 20:

1  “For the kingdom of heaven is like a landowner who went out early in the morning to hire laborers for his vineyard.

2  “Now when he had agreed with the laborers for a denarius a day, he sent them into his vineyard.

3  “And he went out about the third hour and saw others standing idle in the marketplace,

4  “and said to them, ‘You also go into the vineyard, and whatever is right I will give you.’ So they went.

5  “Again he went out about the sixth and the ninth hour, and did likewise.

6  “And about the eleventh hour he went out and found others standing idle, and said to them, ‘Why have you been standing here idle all day?’

7  “They said to him, ‘Because no one hired us.’ He said to them, ‘You also go into the vineyard, and whatever is right you will receive.’

8  “So when evening had come, the owner of the vineyard said to his steward, ‘Call the laborers and give them their wages, beginning with the last to the first.’

9  “And when those came who were hired about the eleventh hour, they each received a denarius.

10  “But when the first came, they supposed that they would receive more; and they likewise received each a denarius.

11  “And when they had received it, they complained against the landowner,

12  “saying, ‘These last men have worked only one hour, and you made them equal to us who have borne the burden and the heat of the day.’

13  “But he answered one of them and said, ‘Friend, I am doing you no wrong. Did you not agree with me for a denarius?

14  ‘Take what is yours and go your way. I wish to give to this last man the same as to you.

15  ‘Is it not lawful for me to do what I wish with my own things? Or is your eye evil because I am good?’

16  “So the last will be first, and the first last. For many are called, but few chosen.”

You should check this out, too: The 1st shall be last and the last 1st

>>Truth1 >>> I am going back to black regular text in bold face. There is so much in that above account. 1st, Many, is my belief, will come to God in the very last hours as Satan ramps up his intimidation and forces all to make a choice: Him or God. And many at that point will perceive that all they had previously heard about God, though not of great detail, necessarily, must be true because of the contrast they will see. They will even accept the concentration camps or prisons that they will be threatened with.

Many could resent this due to perhaps living a somewhat obedient life, denying themselves the short shallow pleasures of sexual freedom or whatever. And some of the last hour crowd might have been among these "hell raisers." But they are being threated with what all are threatened with, and if they come to God, with such a perilous decision, God sees that as a big step and decision and it is good enough for Him and His son. And we should be glad, too. But some will no doubt bitch, or Jesus would not have brought this up.

And then there is that last comment: 16  “So the last will be first, and the first last. For many are called, but few chosen.”

very few will be former church leaders and big names. In fact, I would suggest they will seem to be "nobodys," virtually unheard of. Hence Jesus sweetend the deal to any who might dare trust a person who has no fame or respect and may even be hated and slandered. They lied about Jesus, surely they would not leave out his most loves ones, would they?

Jesus also makes the point that though all would be offered the opportunity to accept the Father and His terms, most will refuse and turn it down. Few will be chosen. It won't be many that recognize those who speak for Jesus. But he does offer a big reward for those that do listen to who he sends to them. Receive them and you receive he who sent them, as well.

That is why you want to be on the look out. A prophet will be an unpopular nobody. No wealth, and no status or degree! Some may even say he or they are followers of the devil. They said Jesus was. The Apostles had no status. They did not belong to the Pharisees or Sadducees. "Unletterd and Ordinary" is how they were seen by the leaders of the Jewish people after Jesus' death.

They will not belong to any church or have any titles. They will, for sure, be insulted and called names. Would you recognize such a person or persons? Why should you take their word for anything? They were not recognized for having any brains or education. But they will be carrying the words of Jesus and the Bible, and they will be smart, though not appreciated for it.

This will take quite the discernment of people, to be able to overcome status and see what these are saying, based on whether it truly makes sense or not. These men are going to be very intelligent and logical. But most are not used to using their own judgment, and instead, depend on established status, approval, and recognition.

So I warn the world that some will become manifest, or at the very least, at least one, who will be talking sense when no one else is. I hope the world will be ready. What I can say is that I do not know of any who have recognized what I have put together in this article, to let poeple know what is coming and may already be in the world, but is not recognized yet, if ever, before the big test. But Jesus did his best to promise a reward to any smart enough to listen to such sent ones.

Will this article catch on and get mention? Or will those in power try to keep it from getting any notice? I suspect that Jesus will open the eyes and hearts of a few to see and understand this and act accordingly. But the line won't be very long. But only time will answer the many things that could or might happen.

I thought this song in one place was appropriate for this article: The words of Simon and Garfunkel “Sounds of Silence” come to mind. Pretend it is Jesus speaking.
 
And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more.
People talking without speaking,
People hearing without listening,
People writing songs that voices never shared
And no one dared
Disturb the sound of silence.
'Fools' said I, 'You do not know
Silence like a cancer grows.
Hear my words that I might teach you,
Take my arms that I might reach you.'
But my words like silent raindrops fell,
And echoed
In the wells of silence

Paul Simon was and is among the best in songwriting with meaning.   People talking without speaking;  hearing but not listening;  No one dared disturb the sounds of silence, and fear.  My words like silent raindrops fell,  And echoed In the wells of silence.
