What would you do if someone very close to you, very dear to you had been accused of a terrible, horrible crime – a crime you knew they definitely did not commit? My article “The Cup Was Not The Cross” was written to clear Jesus Christ of such a crime, to defend His name and honor. It is the one article I send to more pastors than any other article I have ever written, because so many pastors have been duped by Satan into believing that Jesus Christ attempted to evade the cross, praying to the Father, “Remove this cup (the cross) from me.” That is the most ludicrous belief any pastor or Christian can ever begin to entertain in his, or her, mind. To say Jesus Christ tried to evade the cross is as insane as saying Satan tried his best to redeem mankind and obtain our forgiveness! But this insane teaching has been believed by so many pastors, preachers, Bible teachers, theologians, etc. for so long, taught so fervently by so many that almost everyone, it seems, believes that the “cup” Jesus Christ did not want to drink was the humiliation and agonies of the cross. And that is a devil’s LIE!
If you have not read this article (The Cup Was Not The Cross), I urge you to do so now, looking up each and every scripture cited. I will continue to clean toilets until the last day I draw breath if in doing so I can generate a few dollars to pay the cost of postage, envelopes, copy paper and ink cartridges in order to get this article into the hands of as many pastors as possible throughout the United States. I will stay up after midnight and arise long before sunrise if that is what it takes to continue this tiny ministry the Lord has given me. “To whom much is given, much is required.” HE said that. He has given me spiritual understanding in this matter of the cross and Jesus’ divine mission, moreso it seems than has been given to most “preachers.” They need to stop portraying Jesus Christ as a reluctant redeemer, one who desperately tried to evade giving His life to redeem mankind from Satan’s grasp. And the Father has let me know how greatly He appreciates my efforts to defend the good name and character of His beloved Son – that is the main reason I am healed of each and every disease and illness that afflicts me in short order once I cry out to the Lord to be healed.
All these “reverends” need to wake up and read their own Bibles, believing what is written therein instead of merely parroting what they have been spoon-fed by their religious instructors. And, on that note, I will end this discourse.
Christ’s Servant (Galatians 1:10),
How on earth can I go to sleep when the Spirit of the Mighty God continues to enlighten my eyes to so much. Reading about Abraham again and how God “brought him forth abroad, and said, ‘Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them.’ And He said unto him, ‘So shall thy seed (descendants) be (numberless, of such great number no mathematician could number them).'” (See Genesis 15:5).
Ptolemy, an ancient astronomer in Alexandria, Egypt, who lived in the Second Century A.D. counted 1022 stars. He must have had better eyesight than Hipparchus, a Greek astronomer who lived nearly two centuries before Jesus Christ came to earth, as Hipparchus had only counted 850. It’s a pity they didn’t have access to God’s Word, or, if they did, failed to believe it, because God had previously indicated that the stars were numberless, just too many to count. Plus, the heavens wrap totally around this globe we live on, so, in counting the stars visible at any given point one must realize that there is a vast expanse of sky one never sees! Even astronomers, at least ancient ones, were not really deep thinkers. If I stand at the North Pole and look up, I am not seeing the same sky someone sees if viewing the heavens from the vantage point of the South Pole. And even though the earth is revolving, it would have to twist and turn and revolve in every possible direction for me to see the whole of the heavens. Even then I am only seeing a tiny portion thereof as it extends outward trillions of light years with stars and galaxies of stars everywhere.
So, are there really “few” that eventually are saved. God said Abraham’s spiritual descendants (see Romans 4 and Galatians 3) would outnumber the stars AS WELL AS THE DUST OF THE EARTH (see Genesis 13:16). When all is said and done, when God’s great work of bringing many sons to glory reaches its conclusion, Satan will have lost big time. The number of the redeemed of the Lord will be countless – billions and billions, if not trillions and trillions. The saving of mankind does not end with our Lord’s return. That’s actually when it begins. Right now God is merely building a cadre, as it were, of servants and sons who will assist our Father in expanding His family so greatly it will fill the universe. God help you to see and understand. Now maybe I will go to bed for awhile….maybe…..
