The Messengers of Malachi, Part 5

Date: 04/01/2016 Issue Number: 333

Two Wrong Views of the Law After criticizing the priests for their partiality and their unjust marriage policies, the prophet says in Mal. 2:17, 17 You have wearied the Lord with your words. Yet you say, “How have we wearied Him?” In that you say, “Everyone who does evil is good in the sight of the Lord, and He delights in them,” or “Where is the God of Justice?” The prophet implies that the priests did not agree with his assessment. Instead, they argued with him and with Go…

The Messengers of Malachi, Part 4

Date: 03/01/2016 Issue Number: 332

The second “messenger” in the book of Malachi is the model priest who adheres to the covenant, walks uprightly, and preserves the knowledge of God so that he may teach it to the people. One major criticism that God had for the priests in the days of Malachi was that they were showing partiality in their judgments, their thinking, and their attitudes toward others. In so doing, they had “turned aside from the way” (2:8) and had caused many to stumble by their instruction/teaching. Having …

The Messengers of Malachi, Part 3

Date: 02/01/2016 Issue Number: 331

In Malachi 1:13 God complains about the priests’ attitude toward the sacrifices, saying, 13 “You also say, ‘My, how tiresome it is!’ And you disdainfully sniff at it [i.e., “pooh-pooh it”],” says the Lord of hosts, “and you bring what was taken by robbery, and what is lame or sick; so you bring the offering! Should I receive that from your hand?” says the Lord. Not only were people bringing sacrificial animals that were lame or sick, but also what they had…

The Messengers of Malachi, Part 2

Date: 01/01/2016 Issue Number: 330

In the first four verses of Malachi, God expresses His love for “Jacob” while hating “Esau-Edom.” Though Edom’s desire was to inherit the promises of God, the decision of God was made before these twin sons were even born. The Law of the Stubborn Son The sovereign decision of God, however, appeared to contradict the provision in the law which forbade preferring a younger son over the older (Deut. 21:15-17). Replacing a first-born son could be done only when there was legal cause&md…

The Messengers of Malachi, Part 1

Date: 12/01/2015 Issue Number: 329

Malachi is the last prophet of the Old Testament. He lived after Judah’s exile and is one of the post-exilic prophets, along with Haggai and Zechariah. Malachi’s prophecy shows us the conditions in the nation of Judea leading up to the coming of Christ. In that sense, this prophecy told the people of his day what issues were going to be a problem in the next few centuries. God wanted the people to know what to pray about, so that they would have understanding during the 400 so-called “silent year…

Begotten, Not Made

Date: 11/01/2015 Issue Number: 328

There have been many classic controversies in the history of the Church, most of which were “settled” by Church Councils. These Councils, however, were made up of bishops who were largely carnally minded religious men and did not truly reflect the humility and love that had been seen in Jesus. For this reason, these Councils were more similar to the Jewish Sanhedrin and based upon human understanding, rather than to the biblical Council of the Lord, which functions by revelation. The fourth century, be…

Remarkable Time Cycles in Daniel

Date: 10/01/2015 Issue Number: 327

Daniel 12:11, 12 says, 11 And from the time that the regular sacrifice is abolished, and the abomination of desolation is set up, there will be 1,290 days. 12 How blessed is he who keeps waiting and attains to the 1,335 days. The time cycles given in these verses are a mystery to most people. As I said earlier, John has nothing to say about these two cycles, focusing only upon the 1260 days (Rev. 12:6). This is the equivalent of “a time and times and half a time” in Rev. 12:14. John expresses it a…

Blessing the Cursed Earth

Date: 09/01/2015 Issue Number: 326

In early August ten of us met in the high mountains of Colorado to pray, to discern, and to appeal to the Divine Court to bless the earth in fulfillment of His New Covenant promises. I wrote a full report of this court case in my weblogs after returning to Minnesota, and it is too lengthy to repeat the details of that court case here. However, God gave us some deeper revelations during that time in order to better equip us to do the work that we were required to do. One of the most important revelations was about …

The Remnant Will Return

Date: 08/01/2015 Issue Number: 325

One of the notable themes in the book of Isaiah is his prophecy about the remnant returning. Isaiah 10:20-23 says, 20 Now it will come about in that day that the remnant of Israel, and those of the house of Jacob who have escaped, will never again rely on the one who struck them, but will rely on the Lord, the Holy One of Israel. 21 A remnant will return, the remnant of Jacob, to the mighty God. 22 For though your people, O Israel, may be like the sand of the sea, only a remnant within them will return; a destruct…

Opposition in the Kingdom

Date: 07/01/2015 Issue Number: 324

Because most of us have been taught that the second coming of Christ will immediately solve all of our problems, we have not adequately prepared to overcome the opposition that will surely come. The first major pattern of the establishment of the Kingdom is seen in Israel’s conquest of Canaan under Joshua. Notice that there was warfare before and after they crossed the Jordan. We have done much spiritual warfare prior to entering the Kingdom, but we have not yet seen what comes after we cross our own Jordan.…

How Cyrus Conquered Babylon

Date: 06/01/2015 Issue Number: 323

The way that King Cyrus of Persia overthrew Babylon is the pattern for Christ’s overthrow of Mystery Babylon. Since we are fast approaching the time of Babylon’s overthrow today, it is important to understand the original pattern in order to be able to follow current events. Alyattes, king of Lydia, ruled (from his capital city of Sardis) what is now the western half of Turkey.Lydiawas attacked by Cyaxartes of Media, and ultimately, the conflict ended with a treaty that was cemented by marriage. The Ly…

Departments of Kingdom Government

Date: 05/01/2015 Issue Number: 322

At the Passover conference in April 2015 we decreed the coronation of David/Christ/overcomers on the morning of the wave-sheaf offering, April 5. This marked the completion of the transfer of authority from the beast systems of men to the saints of the Most High. We are now instructed to watch God as He begins to construct His government on earth. So I also taught about the 12 departments of Kingdom government that are suggested by the names of the 12 tribes of Israel. Reuben = Dept. of Treasury and Commerce Sim…
