No Shadow Of Turning

“Wheee! I can do anything i want” said Pinochio “and nobody can make me stop! Wheee”! Yeah, that is until Gepetto gets back and finds out what he’s been up to. And if he’s been doing evil, into the fire he goes! No getting to be a real little boy for those who are evil. No, they make a nice warm fire out of them instead, with all the other wood scraps.

And it’s a magic fire, too. It’s the kind of fire that never goes out. Never, ever. It burns for ever and ever.

Revelation Chapter 14

9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any
man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his
forehead, or in his hand,
10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is
poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he
shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy
angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever:
and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his
image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the
commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.
13 And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed
are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the
Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do
follow them.

The smoke from their torment goes up for ever and ever. AND they have NO rest, day or night. Like the story about Lazarus. Does everyone remember the story about the rich man and Lazarus?

Luke Chapter 16

19 ¶ There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and
fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:
20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at
his gate, full of sores,
21 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich
man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.
22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the
angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was
buried;
23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth
Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and
send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool
my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.
25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime
receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now
he is comforted, and thou art tormented.
26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed:
so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can
they pass to us, that would come from thence.
27 Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send
him to my father’s house:
28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they
also come into this place of torment.
29 Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let
them hear them.
30 And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them
from the dead, they will repent.
31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets,
neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

The rich man woke up and found himself in hell. Just like he was told it would be. ONly it was worse than he ever imagined! Eternal torment! Those two words just don’t really go together well. But that’s what happens to those who i wrote about the other day. Some people never learn. But i realize now that those folks choose to do evil. They do not choose God, but they choose self. So they choose to go to hell for ever and burn for ever and ever. And when they wake up and find themselves in hell, just like they were told was going to happen, they can only thank themselves for choosing to go there. Now isn’t that something! Burning for eternity, knowing they chose to go there, because they thought they were “tough” and “cool”. What a let down that is going to be!

The poor rich man, he didn’t want much. He didn’t ask to be taken out of the fire. He didn’t ask for anything except a drink of water, even a small tiny bit of water. All he wanted while he was burning in hell was a little relief. A short break. A small drink of water and a tiny bit of rest from the torment. But there is NO rest! Not day or night, for ever and ever. For ETERNITY! People sometimes say that we create our own reality, and we really do.

I don’t like to even think about hell. But sometimes i have to.

But now i begin to understand the meaning of hell and the purpose for it. It is called “Cleansing Fire”. Because it cleanses all evil. All evil, everything evil is going to go into the fire and be destroyed. And then, guess what? There won’t be any evil any more! None! Anywhere! What a strange concept! I can not imagine what it must be like. A place where there is no evil whatsoever. That is going to be the New World. A place where no evil exists at all.

If we want to go to this New World, what should we do? How should we act?

1 Peter Chapter 1

15 But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all
manner of conversation;
16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

We need to be holy in everything we think, feel and do. Separating ourselves from all sin and evil. We can’t be holy if we continue on sinning and committing fornication and adultery and being profane and unholy. Be ye holy in all manner of conversation. Because if you are not holy and you are evil then they will throw you in the fire and burn you with all the other scraps. All uncleanness and evil are going into the Cleansing Fire to be cleansed.

I thought about how many evil people there are in the world, and there seems to be a few. I also thought about how many people kill and eat God’s creatures. Jesus said in the Gospel of the Hebrews “Know you not that those who live by the sword must also die by the same?” If this is True, which i believe Jesus is God and God’s Word is True, then ALMOST EVERYONE could end up going to hell! For disobeying God’s commandments in Genesis, that herbs shall be the meat for man. Because God’s Word will never pass away. What God said 2,000 years ago is still true today! And so this could be one reason that FEW will find the way. This could be another reason that MANY will be turned away.

However, this is not a very popular lesson, that people are not supposed to kill and eat animals. Have you ever thought about the days when Jesus walked on the EArth? Do you ever imagine what it must have been like to be alive then, and see Jesus, and talk to Him? Can you imagine sitting around, listening to Jesus teach in parables? Do you think after telling some parables and teaching people about the Kingdom of God that Jesus would say “we’re hungry now, lets take some animals and cut off their heads and gut them out and skin them and get all bloody and then we’ll eat those animals and then i’ll put the fur on my head for a hat”? No, i don’t think Jesus would say that either. In fact, I KNOW He wouldn’t.

People think that they HAVE to eat meat, which is ridiculous. I don’t know where they got that idea from. Probably from so-called “scientists” or “doctors”. Many people don’t like to hear my interpretation of God’s Word. All i did was read it! All i do is explain what God’s Word says, in plain English! And people don’t like to hear it! People get angry! People get so angry that they want to kill me for teaching the meaning of Scriptures!

And then i thought about Jesus, and that is the same thing that happened to Jesus. No one wanted to hear what Jesus taught. It went against what they wanted to believe. In fact, they wanted to kill Jesus, for His Teachings! They tried to kill Jesus several times, but He got away a few times. But then it came time for Jesus to die, and He knew it had to be. And when Jesus died, He forgave His killers! He asked His Father to forgive his own murderers! Why? Well, that’s the kind of guy that He is. But also, it is because as Jesus said, if we do not forgive our debtors, neither will our Father forgive us. So it was important that Jesus held out til the very end, and even forgave the people who killed Him, because otherwise, He would not have been forgiven by His Father.

Well Jesus knew all those bad people were going to try and kill him for telling His Message. So what did He do? He told His Message the best that He could while He was still alive, so that everyone would know.

I was thinking about bugs, and creatures, and living animals. And we all seem to think that animals don’t think. People think animals just run on some kind of “animal program”. But to me, i look around, and it seems to me that ALL living creatures are sentient beings. All the ones that i can see, any way. I’m not talking about bugs that i can’t see because i don’t have microscopic vision. But every living creature that i can see.

What is a “sentient” being? I think it is a being that thinks, and has feelings. Such as a cat. Or a dog. Even a bug! Why? Well, let’s look at a bug first. If you see a bug running around, it is probably trying to find some food to eat. The bug may be trying to find food to feed for it’s babies. The bug knows how to take care of it’s babies. And the bug can certainly think, to some extent. Such as, how to get food. Or it can sense danger. If you put your hand near the bug to catch it or squash it, and create a shadow, the bug will sense that, and try to run away! Now how can the bug sense danger, and know to run away, unless it can think? How can the bug take care of it’s babies?

Well, people say it is just a bug, and it doesn’t think. It just runs around doing it’s “bug” thing. It runs around, trying to find food, trying to have a mate and have offspring, and feed their babies and take care of them, and build them a home, and teach them how to survive, and how to sense danger, and what to do in case of danger, such as running in a zig zag fashion, save up for winter or what ever. Well now, isn’t this the EXACT SAME THING THAT PEOPLE DO?

Yes, it is.

If bugs are running some kind of “bug program” then people must be running some kind of “people program”. I don’t think there’s that much difference between the two. But at least with bugs and animals, and all other living creatures, besides humans, you will NEVER see any bugs or animals laying around and masturbating for the next 30 years.

No, you won’t.

Bugs and animals even seem to have some sort of “common decency” that some people don’t even have. Bugs and animals, i don’t think they could EVER do anything that is unholy.

Only people do unholy things.

There are a lot of living creatures in the world, and i don’t think that human beings are the only sentient beings on Earth. I know better than that.

James Chapter 1

JAMES, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve
tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting.
2 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;
3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and
entire, wanting nothing.
5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all
men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is
like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the
Lord.
8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.
9 Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that he is exalted:
10 But the rich, in that he is made low: because as the flower of the
grass he shall pass away.
11 For the sun is no sooner risen with a burning heat, but it withereth
the grass, and the flower thereof falleth, and the grace of the fashion
of it perisheth: so also shall the rich man fade away in his ways.
12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried,
he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to
them that love him.
13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for
God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:
14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust,
and enticed.
15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin,
when it is finished, bringeth forth death.
16 Do not err, my beloved brethren.
17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh
down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness,
neither shadow of turning.
18 Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should
be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.
19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear,
slow to speak, slow to wrath:
20 For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.
21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness,
and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save
your souls.
22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your
own selves.
23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a
man beholding his natural face in a glass:
24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway
forgetteth what manner of man he was.
25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth
therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this
man shall be blessed in his deed.
26 If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his
tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain.
27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To
visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself
unspotted from the world.

Luke Chapter 17

THEN said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offences
will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come!
2 It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck,
and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little
ones.
3 ¶ Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee,
rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.
4 And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven
times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive
him.
5 And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith.
6 And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye
might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root,
and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you.
7 But which of you, having a servant plowing or feeding cattle, will
say unto him by and by, when he is come from the field, Go and sit
down to meat?
8 And will not rather say unto him, Make ready wherewith I may
sup, and gird thyself, and serve me, till I have eaten and drunken; and
afterward thou shalt eat and drink?
9 Doth he thank that servant because he did the things that were
commanded him? I trow not.
10 So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which
are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have
done that which was our duty to do.
11 ¶ And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed
through the midst of Samaria and Galilee.
12 And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men
that were lepers, which stood afar off:
13 And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have
mercy on us.
14 And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves
unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were
cleansed.
15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back,
and with a loud voice glorified God,
16 And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he
was a Samaritan.
17 And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where
are the nine?
18 There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this
stranger.
19 And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee
whole.
20 ¶ And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the
kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The
kingdom of God cometh not with observation:
21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the
kingdom of God is within you.
22 And he said unto the disciples, The days will come, when ye shall
desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and ye shall not see
it.
23 And they shall say to you, See here; or, see there: go not after
them, nor follow them.
24 For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under
heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the
Son of man be in his day.
25 But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected of this
generation.
26 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of
the Son of man.
27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in
marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood
came, and destroyed them all.
28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they
drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and
brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.
30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.
31 In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in
the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in
the field, let him likewise not return back.
32 Remember Lot’s wife.
33 Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever
shall lose his life shall preserve it.
34 I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one
shall be taken, and the other shall be left.
35 Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and
the other left.
36 Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other
left.
37 And they answered and said unto him, Where, Lord? And he said
unto them, Wheresoever the body is, thither will the eagles be
gathered together.
