Home of Golden Calf
I was saved at seven years old in a Sunday School class in 1949. The teacher held up a card scribbled with black, and I knew that represented my heart as being filled with sin.
12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
She next held up a white card, and I wanted my heart clean just like the card. She held up a red card and explained how Jesus loved me so much that he died in my place, and the blood of Christ's perfect sacrifice has the power to wash away sin.
5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,
6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
It was then that she asked if anyone would like to pray and ask Jesus to be their savior? I don't remember about the others, but I wanted to be saved. She read John 3:16!
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
It was then that I asked Jesus to save me. It was with all my heart, and all my soul, and all my might!
23 And it shall come to pass, that in what tribe the stranger sojourneth, there shall ye give him his inheritance, saith the Lord GOD
Today, I'm just a stranger passing through looking for my inheritance in Christ. I have made all the mistakes. I do not fit. I find myself an outcast in the traditional Christian society. I can't function in the traditional Church though they can't really get rid of me either. I've fallen from grace, but not in the way most dirty minds would conceive the condition. It gives me a unique perspective in that I am looking from the outside in. It is not a good position from a Biblical perspective, but God has graciously made provision for folks like me.
I represent no one but the Biblical stranger. I'm convinced this generation is the last generation of the Christian Church dispensation. I see the Church corrupted by the Golden Calf, and ready to be moved aside for God's next dispensation which involves the 7 year Tribulation, the Second Coming of Christ, and the millennial reign of the Jewish Messiah/King (Jeshua Ha-Meshiah).
I take a very unique view in proposing the Two Witnesses of Revelation 11 will witness to the fact that God changed dispensations!!! They are the foundation of the next dispensation. Their ministry will be likened to the Third Jewish Temple what Zerubbabel and Joshua were to the Second Temple. They will build Ezekiel's Temple (Ezek 40 -48) in 3 1/2 years, and establish kosher worship within it.
A stranger from the outside can see the Church failing today, and the necessity for it to step aside so God can continue His plan in Christ. Man has failed in every past dispensation, yet God has always continued with the same plan. He just started all over again with new people ready to uphold the old truths in new ways with a proper, humble fear of the Lord. It is all about to happen again! I expect to be raptured with the Church. I am not unique in the Biblical record!
23:1 He that is wounded in the stones, or hath his privy member cut off, shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD.
2 A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of the LORD.
3 An Ammonite or Moabite shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to their tenth generation shall they not enter into the congregation of the LORD for ever:
2Blessed is the man that doeth this, and the son of man that layeth hold on it; that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and keepeth his hand from doing any evil.
3Neither let the son of the stranger, that hath joined himself to the LORD, speak, saying, The LORD hath utterly separated me from his people: neither let the eunuch say, Behold, I am a dry tree.
4For thus saith the LORD unto the eunuchs that keep my sabbaths, and choose the things that please me, and take hold of my covenant;
5Even unto them will I give in mine house and within my walls a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off.
6Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the LORD, to serve him, and to love the name of the LORD, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant;
7 Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.
8The Lord GOD which gathereth the outcasts of Israel saith, Yet will I gather others to him, beside those that are gathered unto him.
Yes, this is DDSrail. The outcast, the stranger, the son of the stranger, the eunuch, the Ammonite, the Moabite, the one who bears the mark of Cain, who has yet been given a better name, an everlasting name because I asked with all my heart, with all my soul, and with all my might that Jesus Christ forgive me of my sins and become my savior!
