Daily Devotional, Year 3 – September 20

Apocalypse NOW! Part 19: “Bind Them Into Bundles!”

To read Part 1, click here…AUGUST 3 (Apocalypse Now! Part 1: Silencing the Gospel!)

“Another parable put He (Jesus) forth unto them,

saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man

which sowed good seed in his field: 

But while men slept, his enemy came…

and sowed tares among the wheat…

in the time of harvest I will say (to the reapers)…

Gather ye together first the tares,

and bind them in bundles to burn them:

but gather the wheat into my barn.”

Matthew 13:24-30 (condensed for brevity)

This above passage is that infamous parable of the wheat and tares.

.

In this frightful prophecy, the wheat represents the true worshipers of God, while the tares represent the false brethren in the Church.

HARVEST TIME

.

And because, it was too difficult to distinguish between the true and the false, the Householder commanded his servants to, “Let both grow together until the harvest” Matthew 13:30 

.

And so, this has been the condition of the church-world for many long centuries.

.

Oh yes, there was a time of separation of the wheat and tares during the Dark Ages when the apostate churches of Europe became vicious and hostile to the point that God’s people had to separate themselves, eventually fleeing for refuge in the mountain strongholds of the European Alps!

But today, the condition of the church-world is finally reaching a low-point, requiring God’s people to once again faithfully separate themselves from the overwhelming tide of corruption which is now flooding the local congregations and denominations with intolerable apostasy!

BINDING INTO BUNDLES

.https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:El_trigo_y_la_ciza%C3%B1a_2.PNG

But notice in this parable, that it says…“Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn” Matthew 13:30

So what does all this mean?http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:At_a_loss.svg

.

Just how will the Lord gather up the tares at the end?

.

And how will they be bundled?

CHURCHES OVERRUN WITH “ITCHING EARS” GOSPELS

.

Well, truth-be-told, this is all happening right now before our very eyes!

.

That’s right! The harvest time is here.

.

You see, the time has fully arrived when the following prophecy of Paul’s letter to Timothy is now fulfilled…“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;” 2nd Timothy 4:3

“GAIN IS GODLINESS” GOSPEL

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Family_Portrait.jpg

Yes, the churches and denominations have embraced so many wrong doctrines, among which is their prosperity-driven gospel, that it is no longer safe for God’s people and their children to continue to attend weekly services.

.

They must come out!

COUNTERFEIT JESUS

.

And since the Holy Spirit has now absented Himself from such corrupt worship, the Devil has now moved in and filled the void, bringing a counterfeit gospel with “all power and signs and lying wonders…to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect. (2nd Thessalonians 2:9 & Mark 13:22)

.

And so, our question is very simply answered! 

.

The local congregations, in all of their apostasy and deception have now become the very bundles which bind the tares together! 

.

.

.

.

.

“FLEE TO THE MOUNTAINS!”

Mark 13:14 & luke 21:21

.

And those who are truly the children of the kingdom are called to make this end-time exodus out of those bundles (congregations) before they likewhttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Genesis19-17.jpgise get burned up in the fires of God’s Judgment…“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Revelation 18:4

.

And while it may be true that God’s people were to continue to congregate together until the day that was approaching (see Hebrews 10:25).

.

But that “Day” has now arrived when the Lord says, “Flee to the Mountains!” It is no longer the time for God’s people to congregate.

TARES CANNOT LEAVE

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Burning_Man_2013_Church_Trap,_Burning_down_(9660393320).jpg

But since the tares do not have a living and viable relationship with God, they feel they must continue congregating together.

.

And this is how they are to be bundled together, to suffer the wrath of God on the fiery day of His vengeance!

GOD’S SPIRIT BEING POURED OUT

.

Well there is some Good News in all this negativity!https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-081218-M-4507D-001.jpg

.

Yes, God is now pouring out His Spirit upon all flesh, even as it is written in Joel 2:28…“And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out My spirit upon all flesh;”

.

Yes, God is now beginning to pour out His Holy Spirit upon all flesh, to plead with them to turn and repent!

“LORD, SAVE ME!”

Matthew 14:30

.

And this passage from Joel continues…“And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpgmount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.” Joel 2:32

.

Yes, it is now the time for any hungering and thirsting soul to cry out for deliverance from this world of death!

.

And together with those who have fled to the Mount Sion of God for refuge, they will shine as the brightness of the Sun for all the unbelieving world to see!

LOCATING THIS CONSTELLATION GROUP…

.

“Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.” Micah 4:1, 2

Valley of Decision + O Destroying Mountain Constellation Group

.

Look eastward in the early summer through fall. Find the Cassiopeia Constellation. Cassiopeia is the Mount of Blessing. In the sketch, it is the farthest mountain to the left. In the sky, it is the northern-most of these three mountains when facing eastward. It resembles a pyramid.

.

Then find the second pyramid to its right (south).

.

Then go a little further south to the next third pyramid. The third snow-cap is the Destroying Mountain Constellation.

.

These three pyramids are the snow-capped portion of these three mountains in this sketch. (of course, you won’t see the snow-caps in the sky. They are just an embellishment in this sketch to present a concept-EDITOR).
