The brightness of our revelations depend upon the correctness of our doctrines, our building blocks

(God is Thought, God is Love, God is a Spirit – Eccl 12:7, and so are you)


(Isa 40:3)  The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.



(Mal 4:1-6)  For, behold [see, understand], the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven [global nuclear war (a consuming fire) Zech 14:12-15 & Deut 4:24; 9:3; Heb 12:29]; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up [but not us for we will have been previously, perhaps simultaneously, raptured out], saith the LORD of hosts [Heb: armies], that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. But unto you that fear [Heb: to fear; morally to revere /// reverence] my name shall the Sun [Son] of righteousness arise [Heb: irradiate (to shoot forth beams), rise (as the sun); appear: rise up] [i.e., from within us] [1] with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves [young bulls] of the stall [implication of domestication (there isn’t anything wild in Heaven)]. And ye shall tread down the wicked [Joel 2:1-11]; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts. Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb [Mount Sinai] for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments. Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming [2,3] of the great [for us, the rapture/resurrection: 1 Thes 4:13-18; Rev 20:1-6] and dreadful [for them, horrible death] day of the LORD [global nuclear war (a consuming fire) Zech 14:12-15 & Deut 4:24; 9:3; Heb 12:29]: And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children [i.e., God’s agape love (salvation)], and the heart of the children to their fathers [i.e., God’s agape love (salvation)], lest I come and smite the earth with a curse [Heb: a doomed object; extermination].

1.     (Rom 8:18,19)  For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed [Gk: to take off the cover: disclosed] in us. For the earnest expectation [Gk: intense anticipation] of the creature [all living creation] waiteth for the manifestation [Gk: appearance] of the sons [Gk: huios; matured sons] of God. [2 Thes 1:10,12]

2.     Commentary: Elijah the prophet was taken up into heaven alive in “a chariot of fire” (2 Kings 2:11), which is a clear type and shadow of “the rapture.”

3.     (Mat 17:10-13)  And his disciples asked him [asked Jesus for spiritual understanding], saying, Why then say the scribes that Elijah must first come? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elijah truly shall first come, and restore all things [“AND RESTORE ALL THINGS”]. But I say unto you, That Elijah is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them. Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist.

a.      Commentary: “and restore all things” = You are a spirit (a conglomerate of thinking thoughts) dwelling inside a physical body. An important question: What was the first thing that wasbrokenand thus destined to be restored in God’s original creation of the universe? Answer: The fellowship between God who is a Spirit and the angels (spirits) that rebelled against God and became “broken off” fallen angels. Those fallen angels (spirits) were and are imprisoned in earthly spiritually defiling physical bodies. The encompassing defilement of their physical bodies enormously limits and otherwise negates the supernatural powers of fallen angels - temporarily. However, Father God has provided a way (path) for the fallen angels (spirits) to be restored back into His Grace if they will repent (Gk: think differently, reconsider) of their evil ways, submit themselves to Jesus Christ as their Lord (Gk: supreme in authority) and Savior, and follow Him (the great Shepherd) back into Heaven. Presently, some fallen angels will repent, most will not.



(Mat 11:7-15)  And as they departed, Jesus began to say unto the multitudes concerning John [the Baptist], What went ye out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind? But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? behold, they that wear soft clothing are in kings' houses. But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? yea, I say unto you, and more than a prophet. For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee [Isaiah 40:3]. Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force. For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John. And if ye will receive it, this [John the Baptist] is Elijah, which was for to come. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.



(Mat 3:1-12)  In those days came John the Baptist [Gk: a baptizer] [1], preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, And saying, Repent ye [Gk: to think differently, reconsider]: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Isaiah, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight [Isaiah 40:3]. And the same John [the Baptist] had his raiment of camel's hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat [Gk: food] was locusts and wild honey. Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judaea, and all the region round about Jordan, And were baptized [2] of him in Jordan, confessing their sins. But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees [priests who opposed Jesus Christ] come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers [poisonous snakes], who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Bring forth therefore fruits meet [fit] for repentance [Gk: to think differently, reconsider] [i.e., confess your sins]: And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. And now also the axe [symbolic of Jesus Christ: 2 Kings 6:5] is laid unto the root of the trees [symbolic of people in the Bible: Psa 1:3]: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit [i.e., salvations] is hewn down, and cast into the fire. I indeed baptize you with water [“”the washing of water by the word” Eph 5:26] unto repentance: but he that cometh after me [Jesus Christ] is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost [i.e., first with salvation at His coming] [3], and [at His second coming] with fire [global nuclear war (a consuming fire) Zech 14:12-15 & Deut 4:24; 9:3; Heb 12:29]: Whose fan [Gk: winnowing fork] is in his hand, and he will throughly purge [Gk: to cleanse perfectly, winnow] his floor [Gk: threshing floor] [i.e., this planet earth], and gather [Gk: assemble] his wheat into the garner [Gk: barn] [typified by the tabernacle of Moses – supported with wooden priest-boards]; but he will burn up the chaff [the worthless] with unquenchable [Gk: not extinguished, perpetual] fire [global nuclear war (a consuming fire) – radiation].

1.     baptize = Gk: to make whelmed (fully wet)

2.     baptize = Dict: to immerse 1. to dip (a person) into water, or pour or sprinkle water over him, as a symbol of admission into Christianity. 2. to subject to an initiation or an ordeal that purifies or cleanses.

3.     (John 20:19-23)  Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. And when he [Jesus] had so said, he shewed unto them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the Lord. Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me [Gk: sent out on a mission] me, even so send I you. And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost: Whose soever sins ye remit [Gk: forgive, send away], they are remitted [forgiven] unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain [Gk: keep], they are retained [kept].
