Modern Parables for the Lord's People
|The core essence of "Greater Things" is that there
is always a better way to do things -- whether it be
religion, politics, science, academia -- anything. To the extent that
we get institutionalized and codified in a set belief system, is the extent
that we inhibit the ability to grow and learn new and better ways.
"New wine cannot be put into old bottles," is how Jesus put
it. It still holds very true today. The
"establishment" whether it be religious or political or academic,
or whatever, hinders progress, rather than supporting it. So embracing
"greater things" almost of necessity means going "outside the
box", to push the envelope into new areas, and being viewed as a
maverick. I have found that when it comes to religion, the higher
understandings are encoded for those who have eyes to see, while allowing
those who refuse to see plenty of excuses to linger behind. Those who
are ready to grow, do so, and those who are not, don't. -- Sterling

Quest to Sup with Jesus - Since January 22, I've been earnestly engaged in pursuing the promise in
Rev. 3:20: "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man
hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup
with him, and he with me." This has expanded to the point of this
pending event helping turn people to God FIRST, turning away the
3.5-year reign of the beast. (GreaterThings)
|Gettysburg Address Modernized
by Bible Alphabetics - I had no idea what a jewel I
would find when I thought to just look up the ASCII sum for
"Gettysburg Address" and look up that number in the Old and
New Testament lexicons. Also looked up "Abraham Lincoln",
"November 19, 1863", and even the url of this page. Also
looked up the number 1863 in the lexicons. (GreaterThings;

/ Overview - Where I'm coming from, the importance of thinking
for yourself and taking responsibility for your own salvation; multiple
mortalities; the vital role of freedom as it pertains to the first and
second Messianic advents. (August 10, 2014)|

Church of Jesus Christ Today - Alphabetics points to 1) the
casting out of the righteous, 2) the backsliding of the mainstream,
3) the importance of having personal, direct relationship with God.

- what looked like it was going to be the launch of some kind of
organization here, ended up fizzling. A direct tie to a video I
posted four days ago regarding Lindsey.

Priesthood - "priest" and "priesthood"
appear on p. 385 of Gesenius' OT lexicon. 385 is the
"overlay" telephone area code for 801 in Utah. In English,
"priest" just next to "pride" alphabetically.
The ASCII sum ties to "dogma" (NT) and the feminine aspect
of priesthood (OT). (March 29, 2015)|
Atonement - "The Atonement" ASCII sum comes to 1260 --
the number of days of captivity described by Daniel, which comes to
3.5 years. Speculates about contingencies. (March 22, 2015)|
|The Life of Jesus Christ
- that string comes to 1603. "Lindsey Stirling" comes to
1604. (March 15, 2015)|
of God - Alphabetics takes Moses' injunction: "Would
God that ALL the Lord's people were prophets" one step further
-- would that ALL were ones mighty and strong, to turn right-side-up
what is up-side-down across all sectors of society. (March 1, 2015)|

today parallel the Jews
anciently. The Jews
were looking for a government
of God (second coming) but were given the gospel
and rejected it. The Gentile
people of God in these latter days are preoccupied with the gospel
(first coming) but were destined to build on that foundation
and establish a free government.
Instead, they are building Satan's New World Order of forced
benevolence and contrived peace. A remnant
will repent, call upon God mightily, and build Zion, which
includes both the spiritual life and a temporal kingdom.

That you might take responsibility for yourself
"We have heard men who hold the priesthood remark
that they would do anything they were told to do by those who preside over
them -- even if they knew it was wrong. But such obedience as this is worse
than folly to us. It is slavery in the extreme. The man who would thus
willingly degrade himself should not claim a rank among intelligent beings
until he turns from his folly.
"A man of God would despise this idea. Others, in the
extreme exercise of their almighty authority have taught that such obedience
was necessary, and that no matter what the Saints were told to do by their
presidents, they should do it without any questions.
"When Elders [leaders] of Israel will so far indulge
in these extreme notions of obedience as to teach them to the people, it is
generally because they [the leaders] have it in their hearts to do wrong

OF THE FIRSTBORN
The Church of
the Firstborn is not an earthly denomination but a general description
of that community of believers who attain communion through the veil
with Almighty God him(&her)self and the holy angelic hosts. It
consists of humble men and women who have sought God diligently to the
point of coming into his very presence and being called after the holy
order of God, that they might be princes of peace, preachers of
righteousness in carry forth God's work on the earth.
The Church of
the Firstborn umbrella also consists of those who make this attainment
their entire focus (seek and ye shall find), thanks to but not dependent
upon denominational affiliations.
is wholly designed to support this quest, that the Lord may be our God,
and we may be his people.
