God's Holy FireLuke 12:49 I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I if it be already kindled?
Luke 12:50 But I have a baptism to be baptized with;
and how am I straitened till it be accomplished!
Luke 12:51 Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth?
I tell you, Nay; but rather division:
Luke 12:52 For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided,
three against two, and two against three.
Calling down Gods "holy" fire: Malachi knew about ACU, Ken Cukrowski, Mark Hamilton, and James Thompson when he asked: "who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a REFINER'S FIRE, and like FULLER'S SOAP: Malachi 3:2 (To Wash). The concept of HOLY FIRE has meaning ONLY in connection with CONSUMING those who refuse to approach God with reverence and Godly fear. Those who PEDDLE or "retail" the Word which they do not believe are enemies of Christ.
1.02.13 It is a clear Bible fact that musical instruments, USING women and their being cast alive into the lake of fire is a certain PATTERN. The mighty effort enabled by papers and people from the NACC began in the 1980s with the Jubilee Movement: the Pope had call for preparation of Jubliee 200 where the DAUGHTER churches would come back under the Mother of such daughters.
Rubel Shelly thinks that the anger at homosexuals was a Pauline problem
The question for all of us is NOT what the Bible says, but how and why... Why don't we at least entertain the possibility that the Bible simply reflects an ANCIENT TABOO or homophobic prejudice in a few people like Paul -- a taboo and prejudice we need to outgrow?

The old LEAP into thin air sowed lots of discord but was rebuffed by Bible Students. Both ACU and Pepperdine intend to CHANNEL the young preachers in the right way:

The Fire That Consumes The Fire starter or Musical Minister(ess) for Apollo, Abaddon, Apollyon: "Hell" was just outside of Jerusalem: maybe coming to a church near you.
Mark 9 the Worm that Dieth Not. What if it turns out that this identifies the Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites or maggots who live off those already spiritually dead because of being shut out of the kingdom by all of the performing arts intending to make the lambs dumb before the slaughter. Believe it: all sacrificial musicians were callled "parasites" and the heretic was the priest who "lifted them up to cut their throats" made dumb before the slaughter.
The only spiritual covenant was that made by Christ in Spirit to Abraham: Paul closes the loop in Galatians 3 when we are saved by faith WHEN were are baptized into Christ. That makes us children of The Book of The Covenant and sons of Abraham.
The people rose up to play in musical idolatry of the always-pagan trinity. God turned them over to worship the starry hsots (missed Acts 7 too) and gave the Levites to carry it out. The Levites had been an old Egyptian Cult associated with Moloch which they worshipped in the Wilderness. The only INSTRUMENTAL use by the warriors in Hezekiah's plague stopping BURNT OFFERING is said by Christ in the Spirit to be NOT COMMANDED.

The IGNIS or fire starter is also defines as the one who STARTS THE FIRES. The baptism is a baptism of WIND and of FIRE: the music is in fact to separate those marked by the Word and Baptism and cause them to "flee Babylon" leaving their "investment" and sometimes families behind.Mal 4:1 FOR, behold, the day cometh,
that shall burn as an oven;
and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly,
shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up,
saith the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.
Baar (g1197) baw-ar'; a prim. root; to kindle, i. e. consume (by fire or by eating); also (as denom. from 1198) to be (-come) brutish: - be brutish, bring (put, take) away, burn, (cause to) eat (up), feed, heat, kindle, set ([on fire]), waste.
Is.10:17 And the light of Israel shall be for a fire, and his Holy One for a flame: and it shall burn and devour his thorns and his briers in one day;
Isa 11:4 But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath [Spirit] of his lips shall he slay the wicked.
Isa 11:6 The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.

FROM ACU: "A major task facing our churches is the reintegration of the Old Testament into the regular teaching, thinking and practice of the church" (p. 49).
Carroll D. Osburn: The ACU Agenda: Trainers use Prophetic roles to Channel and Facilitate the method of subverting the 'hierarchial" views of Jesus and Paul. the end-time subversion is the beginninng-time version which is "Feminist hermeneutics stands over against patriarchal hermeneutics" its goal achieved "by small, often unnoticed acts of SUBVERSION. Numerous such incremental changes, like EROSION, will eventually bring down the FORTRESS " (WOMEN IN THE CHURCH: Reclaiming the Ideal p. 32).
Carroll D. Osburn: "There is major disagreement on whether one should use the Bible to undergird doctrines in a "proof-texting way, or whether one should allow doctrine to emerge from understanding texts in their literary and historical contexts. Certainly these differing views of Scripture lie behind differing views of women in the church" (p. 90).
"The Bible is not so much a 'heaven-sent answer book' as a historical book produced within and for a historical community-- yet it serves as Scripture today because people find themselves accountable to it. That is what make its Scripture" (p. 46).
These people have agreed as a merry band of men to use CODE WORDS to fool the fools. Therefore, they are playing the old shell game. Be warned that the PEA is under NEITHER shell. The goal of merging the Law of Moses-- added "because of transgression" (that being musical idolatry at mount Sina)-- is to then convince you that THERE IS NO Bible. Rubel Shelly defines "working out your own salvation" as the community partnering with God to write the OLDEN Scripture for THEIR "historical community." Becase WE live in a different culture, WE must PARTNER with God to derive OUR Scripture for OUR time.
John York: Every scene in that story has been set in some historical human context.
Those cultural settings always have been changing and changeable.
WOW! That should earn a Phd from David Lipscomb.Abilene Christian University Press has recently issued "God's Holy Fire is highly endorsed by Royce Money, ACU president.
God's Holy Fire ACU: "God's Holy Fire promises to challenge and enrich current study of the Bible in our churches...A must-read for Christians commited to applying God's Word to their daily lives. Ken Cukrowski, Mark Hamilton, and James Thompson ACU Press."
John Waddey quotes from the new KNOW NOTHING TEXANS as the Southern Baptists are called by Harold Bloom in identified the Baptists as a Gostic religion with not connection to historic Christianity.
God's Holy Fire ACU promises that if you JUDAIZE that:
1. "Eliminating the Old Testament from our canon severely curtails our understanding of the character and activities of God..." (p. 49).
2. "Recovering the Old Testament conversely could transform us more fully into what we have always sought to be--Churches of Christ" (ibid.).
3. "Recognizing that the Old Testament functions just as fully as the New in the canon of the church...." (p. 63).
4. "Too often, we in churches of Christ have made a mistake in removing the Old Testament, for practical purposes, from our canon. The hole in Scripture has produced a hole in the practice of our faith" (p. 66).
Both of their assumptions about the acceptance of and study of the Old Testament in our churches are patently false and force us to one of the following conclusions:
1. Either the authors are totally isolated from the congregations of our brotherhood, beyond the campus of their university;
2. Or they are speaking of their own preaching and teaching;
3. Or they are deliberately setting up an impotent straw man which they can beat and batter in order to convince those who are unlearned and ignorant of the facts that they are doing the church some great service. The announced plan and purpose of ACU's "Heart of the Restoration Series" gives some credence to this last assumption. "This series will help stimulate discussion and make a meaningful contribution to the fellowship of the churches of Christ and beyond" (Preface).
It seems to this author that in order to successfully introduce the innovations which these men wish to impose on the church, they must seduce our people away from the conviction that Christ alone is head over all things to the church (Eph. 1:22); that His Word will judge us in the last day (John 12:48); that the church is founded upon the teaching of Christ and his apostles (Eph. 2:19-20); that God has instructed us to honor Christ above key representatives of the Old Covenant, Moses and Elijah (Matt. 17:1-8).
If they can persuade folks that we are amenable to the Old Testament, the same as the New, then:
4. They can have Scripture for instrumental music in worship (Ps. 150).5. They can have approval for hand clapping and dancing in worship (Ps. 47:1; 149:3).
But instruments were added under the KING and COMMANDERS of the Army to the Temple. The temple was LIKE THE NATIONS because the elders "fired" God and prayed for a king LIKE THE NATIONS so that they could worship LIKE THE NATIONS..
6. They can have women leaders of God's people, like Deborah and Huldah the Prophetess.
7. They can have holy days, fasts and festivals like Christmas, Easter and Ash Wednesday.
The ZOE GROUP wants to kindle the fire as it LOOKS TO THE HILLS from which THEIR salvation comes. But, the proof text warns against looking to the MOUNTAIN GODS. Everyone seems DESTINED to lust to be the first to kindle GOD'S HOLY FIRE:"The nature of a fire is to spread, but how can we expect the fire to grow and to catch onto others if ours is only a candle-sized flame? The best way to witness to your friends is to show them by example. When Non-Christians see the inferno in our lives they will find it irresistible and will be drawn like moths."--TO GET SINGED. Satan's agents want to attract you to the FIRE by making it seem to be something GOOD like the "fruit" in the garden of Eden. You know that the serpent is defined as a Musical Enchanter.
means "HELL or suggesting hell." The CONSUMERS WITH FIRE literally invite you to participate in HELL right now. But God always MARKS them with some sign so that those awake will not turn into toast.John called it SORCERY: John Calvin agrees that Numbers 10 OUTLAWS this when the Qahal, synagogue or church in the wilderness assembled ONLY FOR INSTRUCTIONS. John Calvin was NOT a fraidy cat: he was simply Biblical and Ethical literate along with EVERYONE ELSE before these mighty AFFLICTIONS.

He is the god of the Agora where Jesus consigned the pipers, singers and dancers. The Agora was open to all of the DIETS as well as discussion about diversities. However, Paul in Romans 15 defined the ekklesia which was up the hill at the PNYX in Athens. This allowed nothing but reading and discussing that which was presented to it. No on in the ekklesia or church had any authority to introduce any new resource.
Plat. Prot. 347cBut if he does not mind, let us talk no more of poems and verses, but consider the points on which I questioned you at first, Protagoras, and on which I should be glad to reach, with your help, a conclusion.
For it seems to me that arguing about poetry is comparable to the wine-parties of common market-folk. These people, owing to their inability to carry on a familiar conversation over their wine by means of their own voices and discussions
[347d] such is their lack of education—put a premium on flute-girls by hiring the extraneous voice of the flute at a high price, and carry on their intercourse by means of its utterance. But where the party consists of thorough gentlemen who have had a proper education, you will see neither flute-girls nor dancing-girls nor harp-girls, but only the company contenting themselves with their own conversation, and none of these fooleries and frolics—each speaking and listening decently in his turn,

The paean, which appears in Homer ( Il.i. 473; xxii. 391), was connected originally with Apollo and his sister Artemis. It was a solemn song for several voices, either praying for the averting of evil and for rescue, or giving thanks for help vouchsafed. The name was, however, also used in an extended sense for invocations to other gods. The paean was struck up by the generals before the battle and by armies on the march against the enemy as well as after the victory. Similarly it was sounded when the fleet sailed out of a harbour. Paeans were sung at entertainments between the meal and the carousal, and eventually also at public funeralsAnon shall the whole land be dancing, when Bromius leads his revellers to the hills, to the hills away! where wait him groups of maidens from loom and shuttle roused in frantic haste by Dionysus.

Minerva daughter of Jupiter, identified with Athene... She was worshipped as the patroness of all the arts and trades, and at her festival she was particularly invoked by all who desired to distinguish themselves in any art or craft, such as painting, poetry... further believed to be the inventor of musical instruments,especially wind instruments, the use of which was very important in religious worship,
and which were accordingly subjected to a sort of purification every year on the last day of the festival
Athene: Under this name, too, she is mentioned in several inscriptions found on the Acropolis. Her genius covers the field of music and dancing. She is inventor of the flute and the trumpet, as well as of the Pyrrhic war-dance, in which she was said to have been the earliest performer, at the celebration of the victory of the Gods over the Giants.

By definition, all singing and music was considered LYING because it was two or three removes from what had been delivered into their hands. That is why Athenian Law forbade sending out as heralds (kerusso--preachers or presbyters) any philosopher or poet because they could not be trusted NOT to tamper with the Word and endanger the nation.Of the RELIGIOUS FESTIVALS Amos condemned as leading to the captivity and death sentence imposed at Mount Sinai because of MUSICAL IDOLATRY, Isaiah speaking of their religious festivals noted that:
And the harp, and the viol, the tabret, and pipe, and wine, are in their feasts: but they regard not the work of the Lord, neither consider the operation of his hands. Isa 5:12
Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honourable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst. Isa 5:13
Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it. Isa 5:14
Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms (MAGGOTS) cover thee. Is.14:11
And the mean man shall be brought down, and the mighty man shall be humbled, and the eyes of the lofty shall be humbled: Isa 5:15
Therefore as the FIRE devoureth the stubble, and the FLAME consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the Lord of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel. Is.5:24
ZOE is another name for LUCIFER who was the king-queen of Tyre and named the "singing and harp-playing prostitute." She is the end time holy whore who LIGHTS THE FIRE:
Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. Ezekiel 28:13
By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane (polluted) out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. Ezekiel 28:16
And they come unto thee as the people cometh, and they sit before thee as my people, and they hear thy words, but they will not do them: for with their mouth they shew much love (amorous love songs), but their heart goeth after their covetousness. Ezekiel 33:31
And, lo, thou art unto them as a very lovely song of one that hath a pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument: for they hear thy words, but they do them not. Ezekiel 33:32
God consumes enemies: that is the baptism of fire.
The prophesy against Asyria was also against Jerusalem and Egypt:
And the Lord shall cause his glorious voice to be heard, and shall shew the LIGHTENING down of his ARM, with the indignation of his anger, and with the flame of a DEVOURING fire, with SCATTERING, and tempest (Navigating the Winds), and hailstones. Isa 30:30
For through the VOICE of the Lord shall the Assyrian be beaten down, which smote with a rod. Isa 30:31

For Tophet (from tambourine) is ordained of old; yea, for the king it is prepared; he hath made it deep and large: the pile thereof is FIRE and much wood; the BREATH of the Lord, LIKE a stream of brimstone, doth KINDLE it. Isa 30:33
Ye shall CONCEIVE chaff, ye shall bring forth STUBBLE: your BREATH, as FIRE, shall DEVOUR you Is.33:11
Paul speaks of this HOLY SPIRIT BURNING OF THOSE WHO DESPISE THE WORD OF GOD AND PROMOTE "NEW STYLE WORSHIP."

And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel. Heb. 12:24
Musical teams promise to "lead you into the presence of God." That means that the musical mediators, just as in the pagan temples, REPLACE the role of Lord Jesus Christ.
When the Levites lead the types of Jesus Christ into the presence of the court yard (only) and made a great "musical noise" while they were LED TO THE SLAUGHTER they should know that they were heading for THE CONSUMING FIRES.

But the variation in these accounts is so small that, whereas some represent
The Corybantes, the Cabeiri, the Idaean Dactyli, and the Telchines as identical with the Curetes, others represent them as all kinsmen of one another and differentiate only certain small matters in which they differ in respect to one another; but, roughly speaking and in general, they represent them, one and all, as a kind of inspired people and as subject to Bacchic frenzy, and, in the guise of ministers, as inspiring terror at the celebration of the sacred rites by means of war-dances, accompanied by uproar and noise and cymbals and drums and arms, and also by flute and outcry; and consequently these rites are in a way regarded as having a common relationship, I mean these and those of the Samothracians and those in Lemnos and in several other places, because the divine ministers are called the same. However, every investigation of this kind pertains to theology, and is not foreign to the speculation of the philosopher.

The Only Clear Meaning of Legalism
Hes. Th. 66 There are their bright dancing places and beautiful homes, and beside them the Graces and Himerus （Desire） live  in delight. And they, uttering through their lips a lovely voice, sing the laws of all and the goodly ways of the immortals, uttering their lovely voice. Then went they to Olympus, delighting in their sweet voice, with heavenly song, and the dark earth resounded  about them as they chanted and a lovely sound rose up beneath their feet as they went to their father.
Not to worry: if you have been baptized INTO Christ He has added you to HIS church and translated your perfected spirit (A holy spirit) into a heavenly kingdom where it CANNOT BE SHAKEN.
The music and the seeker centers looks for PAYING MEMBERS and not disciples of Christ. Therefore, you might expect that MOST will be shaken even as they reject instruments and do a legalistic end run with "worship teams" or hiring a PRECENTER to make the music in a sign of human perfection and SELF BOAST.
Heb. 12:28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved,
let us have grace, whereby we may serve God
acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
Heb. 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire.
I am never sure about the end-times but I am ALWAYS SURE that we will be as fooled as the Jews in the first advent. For instance the battles of Armageddon speak more of POLEMIC battles of Words than battle of the Worlds. Aren't we more in war with the IDEALS of Islam than in literal war? In churches of Christ we are in an ARMAGEDDON against new JUDAISERS who lust to adopt the "because of transgression" Law again.
There is holy warning here about trying to stir up STRANGE FIRE by the "works of human hands." God HAD NOT commanded incense but Nadab and Abihu knew about it from their old paganism. God often PLAGUES people with that which they IMPROVISE from pagan religions.
And there came a fire out from before the Lord, and consumed upon the altar the burnt offering and the fat: which when all the people saw, they shouted, and fell on their faces. Lev 9:24
AND Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the Lord, which he commanded them not. Lev 10:1
And there went out fire from the Lord, and devoured them, and they died before the Lord. Lev 10:2
They GIGGLE and poke fun of the Nadab and Abihu principle but they are just ignorant that PATTERNS do repeat themselves when you add incense which God had not commanded: they BORROWED it from the pagans.
YOU CANNOT WORSHIP GOD WHILE LEADING "THE IDOLATRY OF TALENT."
Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: Heb. 12:28
Reverence is: Aidos (g127) ahee-doce'; perh. from 1 (as a neg. particle) and 1492 (through the idea of downcast eyes); bashfulness, i.e. (towards men), modesty or (towards God) awe: - reverence, shamefacedness.
When the feminine or effeminate swing and sway and clap and sing silly, erotic praise songs, they CANNOT be reverent and they MANUFACTURE irreverence. There is no such thing as reverent DRAMA.
Godly Fear is: Eulabeia (g2124) yoo-lab'-i-ah; from 2126; prop. caution, i.e. (religiously) reverence (piety); by impl. dread (concr.): - fear (- ed).
Most "team worshipers" sing, clap, dance, use drama and often use instruments which have their origin in Lucifer or Sophia/ Zoe before he/she was CAST OUT of heaven along with his "worshipers." There can be no Godly fear and God is MOCKING them with blindness to MARK and lead out others who are blind. The Hebrew for clapping includes the word VOMIT.
"Worship" is like a "dog licking his feet" because a human approaching God in the Most Holy Place comes boldly but not with DELIBERATE IRREVERANCE.
Because: For our God is a consuming fire. Heb.12:29
God does NOT CONSUME the "commercial musical industry's ENEMIES; it consumes the musicians WITH THEIR OWN BREATH. In a mystical way God is already BURNING the enemies of His Words just as He is removing the Spirits of the faithful to His invisible kingdom: when Jesus returns you may not find a singe SAVED PERSON in "church" named after CIRCE who was John's model of the HOLY WHORE.
Contrary to the Biblically Illiterate change agents at ACU, endorsed by Royce Money, people in churches of Christ do read the Old Testament. This is where we find proof that water baptism is necessary for remission of sins.
BEHOLD, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the WAY before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the Lord of hosts. Malachi 3:1
The refiner's fire made silver and gold to become a water vessel pure enough to enter into the temple. Our spirit is the temple of God. Fuller's Soap makes Crimson garments as white as snow.

THE WASHING PROCESS BY JESUS CHRIST WAS PROPHESIED TO BE:
Kabac (h3526) kaw-bas, to trample; hence to wash (prop. by stamping with the feet)... WASHING. The Greek Louo (g3068) means to bathe the whole person.
And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, Re.1:5
Paul defined this WASHING:
"Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water (H20). Heb.10:22
This was the SIGN to many. Therefore, again, the pseudo- peer validated sOPHISts can't even read the NEW TESTAMENT. Mark quoted Malachi and saw BAPTISM as the "beginning" of the Gospel of Christ:
THE BEGINNING of the GOSPEL of Jesus Christ, the S.O.N. of God; Mark 1:1
Liddell and Scott note: "Arche means the beginning, origin, lay a foundation, LOGOS (Word) the WORD of the THOUGHT, principles of knowledge
Jesus the WORD OR SON spoke the THOUGHT of the FATHER. His ARCHE or most important commandment to the Apostles was to GO, PREACH and BAPTIZE those with FAITH.
Therefore, Mark looks back to the GOSPEL prophesied by Malachi and forward to "THE" faith or the Christian system.
As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy WAY before thee. Mark 1:2
The voice (shouting) of one crying in the wilderness (a very lonely place), Prepare ye the WAY of the Lord, make his paths straight (level at once). Mark 1:3
Mark then reveals the most important principle of the gospel for those who are not Jesus the Christ.
John DID baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance FOR the remission of sins. Mark 1:4
This was the MARK of the presence of God in the flesh. Many Jews saw this baptizer as a SIGN of Messiah:
And there went out unto him all the land of Judaea, and they of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in the river of Jordan, confessing their sins. Mark 1:5
And they asked him, and said unto him, Why baptizest thou then, if thou be not that Christ, nor Elias, neither that prophet? John 1:25
After the day of Pentecost, over 5,000 had been baptized, saved, added to the church by Christ and fled from Jerusalem.
Then God poured out HIS HOLY FIRE on Jerusalem and consumed the temple, city, nationhood and over one million people who rejected the direct command to be baptized. Isn't it interesting that water baptism makes you FIRE PROOF.

Hinting that the Holy Spirit of Christ in Zacharias, Rick Marrs of Pepperdine didn't know what He was revealing may commit the unforgivable sin: John Waddey notes that the claim is that:
God's Holy Fire ACU: "The question for the apostolic church was not whether the Old Testament exercised authority over them, they had no doubt it did..." (p. 57 and all of chapter 3).
But: When Peter sought to equally honor Jesus, Moses and Elijah, God said, "This is my beloved Son...hear ye him" (Matt. 17:1-6).
ONLY at baptism do BELIEVERS repent and call upon Christ to give them A holy spirit or A clear conscience so that they can understand the depth of the mysteries of God. Paul warned the legalists (Doctors of the Law). NONE of them are aware that after offering the original ten commandments and THE BOOK OF THE COVENANT, the Israelites "rose up to play" which was MUSICAL IDOLATRY. According to Stephen in Acts 7 God turned them over to worship the STARRY HOST including Chiun or Saturn whose Chaldee number is 666:
Notwithstanding the children rebelled against me: they walked not in my statutes, neither kept my judgments to do them, which if a man do, he shall even live in them; they polluted my sabbaths: then I said, I would pour out my fury upon them, to accomplish my anger against them in the wilderness. Eze 20: 21
Nevertheless I withdrew mine hand, and wrought for my names sake, that it should not be polluted in the sight of the heathen, in whose sight I brought them forth. Eze 20: 22
I lifted up mine hand unto them also in the wilderness, that I would scatter them among the heathen, and disperse them through the countries; Eze 20: 23
Because they had not executed my judgments, but had despised my statutes, and had polluted my sabbaths, and their eyes were after their fathers idols. Ezekiel 20: 24
Wherefore I gave them also statutes that were not good, and judgments whereby they should not live; Ezekiel 20: 25
Click for the whole gory detail showing that THE BOOK OF THE LAW was given to legislate for the lawless. When the elders demanded a KING it was so that they could WORSHIP LIKE THE NATIONS.
Therefore, restoring the LAW OF MOSES repudiates Jesus Christ and prays just as at Mount Sinai: "Burn us up in your holy fires" which was in the arms of Molech.
Because God knew that the people would MERGE with Canaanite Baalism carried out in and around the temple He promised:
The Lord thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken; Deut 18:15
The Israelites PRAYED to be able to worship like the nations. God answered their prayer but sent leanness into their souls. God TURNED THEM OVER to worship the STARRY HOST. God would judge them later and use the KINGS to lead the nation into captivity and death.
According to all that thou desiredst of the Lord thy God in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, Let me not hear again the voice of the Lord my God, neither let me see this great fire any more, that I die not. Deut 18:16And the Lord said unto me, They have well spoken that which they have spoken. Deut 18:17
I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. Deut 18:18
And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him. Deut 18:19
But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die. Deut 18:20
False preachers or professors who are PROPHETS for a PROFIT are now inviting God to POUR OUT HIS HOLY FIRE. This is exactly what the PRAYED FOR at Mount Sinai. God then abandoned them to worship Chiun (Saturn or Chaldee 666) by consuming their children to the beat of musical instruments as He drove nations like Egypt, Assyria and Canaan into their own HELL.
Then said the prophet Jeremiah unto Hananiah the prophet, Hear now, Hananiah; The Lord hath not sent thee; but thou makest this people to trust in a lie. Je.28:15
And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee. Matthew 21:11
Paul defined the nature of the Law:
But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully; 1 Timothy 1: 8
Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 1 Timothy 1: 9
For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine; 1 Timothy 1: 10
According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust. 1 Timothy 1: 11
Paul identifies those BLINDED BY THE LAW as not being CHRISTIANS. Anyone who suggests that music must be added to Christian worship MUST demand that we crucify Christ all over again. The Levitical warrior sounders, under the king and commanders of the army, made NOISE while the priest were slaughtering tens of thousands of TYPES of Lord Jesus Christ;
But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away: 2 Cor 3:7How shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather glorious? 2 Cor 3: 8
For if the ministration of condemnation be glory, much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory. 2 Cor 3: 9
For even that which was made glorious had no glory in this respect, by reason of the glory that excelleth. 2 Cor 3: 10
For if that which is done away was glorious, much more that which remaineth is glorious. 2 Cor 3: 11
Those making a profession of trying to BRING DOWN HOLY FIRE will be consumed by the FIRE of their own breath because they listen to Moses pronouncing a LAW WHIICH CONDEMNS and CANNOT have turned to Jesus Christ for A holy spirit or A clear conscience:
Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech: 2 Cor 3: 12But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart. 2 Cor 3: 15
And not as Moses, which put a vail over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished: 2 Cor 3: 13
But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ. 2 Cor 3: 14
Nevertheless, when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away. 2 Cor 3: 16
Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 2 Cor 3: 17
But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord,
are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord. 2 Cor 3: 18
Trying to make HOLY FIRE feel comfortable was the eternal method condemned by literature such as THE BOOK OF ENOCH and others. Once the CHANGE AGENTS OF SATAN discovered that they COULD NOT REPENT they went into a panic trying to SEDUCE as many others into hell to AFFIRM their apostasy.
And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. Re.19:20
1 Behold, he comes with ten thousands of his saints, to execute judgment upon them, and destroy the wicked, and reprove all the carnal for everything which the sinful and ungodly have done, and committed against him.
When God gave the Book of the Covenant, Exodus reads:
And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the Lord descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly. Exodus 19:18
However, as a result of the musical idolatry--rising up to play--God gave them the Book of the Law to protect them. After punishment, God ordained the Levites to stand between the people and the Tabernacle as the symbol of His presence. All but the Levites and Priests were now strangers and the clergy must bear the burden for the people. Therefore, in Deuteronomy, the second law or that "in addition to the Covenant":
And he said, The Lord came from Sinai, and rose up from Seir unto them; he shined forth from mount Paran, and he came with ten thousands of saints: from his right hand (Messiah) went a fiery (burning-goad) law for them. Deut 33:2
The Law was good only if they kept it: God did not command mandatory sacrifices until they had rejected THE BOOK OF THE COVENANT.
This theme of Covenant, sin, and the Law is repeated in The Book of Jubilees
Quoted by Jude, vss. 14, 15.
And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, Jude 14
To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him. Jude 15
1 Moreover Azazyel (Leading Tubal-Cain etal.) taught men to make swords, knives, shields, breastplates, the fabrication of mirrors, and the workmanship of bracelets and ornaments, the use of paint, the beautifying of the eyebrows, the use of stones of every valuable and select kind, and all sorts of dyes, so that the world became altered.
(r) Genun (Jubal, Tubal-Cain etal.) the Canaanite, son of Lamech the Blind, living in the Land of the Slime Pits,
- was ruled by Azael from his earliest youth,
- and invented all sorts of musical instruments.
- When he played these, Azael entered into them too,
- so that they gave forth seductive tunes entrancing the hearts of all listeners.
- Genun would assemble companies of musicians,
- who inflamed one another with music until their lust burned bright like fire,
- and they lay together promiscuously.
- He also brewed beer, gathered great crowds in taverns, gave them to drink,
- and taught them to forge iron swords and spear-points, with which to do murder at random when they were drunk.
Yes, if you stand in the way of those trying to get you used to HOLY FIRE, they will do you great damage.
The following ancient documents PROVE that the END-TIME goal of the "holy whore" is to turn the church over to rhetoricians, sOPHISts, singers and musicians. As Lucifer used music to even seduce angels in heaven to WORSHIP him/her, she has smoothed tongued speakers, sOPHISts (serpents) and MUSICIANS as the ETERNAL tool to seduce people into spiritual fornication and sodomy.
In order to do that, people have to be convinced that the DISTINCTION between the Old and New Testament is just the evil ignorance of the non-instrumental church of Christ. Click to see that ANY Bible 101aaa student would know that this is a lie.
Only then can they STING you with the locusts (musical performers) scorpion tails and infect you with a weeping sore PLAGUE. However, the LIE with cunning craftiness because EVERYONE almost has recognized the role of the NEW TESTAMENT to govern the church of Christ.

This is PROOF POSITIVE that when the Doctors of the Law (fired by Jesus) put their quill to paper God is going to pour out His wrath which can mean MAKE THEM INTO BUFFOON who cannot even quote Luther without distortion.
John Waddey: It seems to this author that in order to successfully introduce the innovations which these men wish to impose on the church, they must seduce our people away from the conviction that Christ alone is head over all things to the church (Eph. 1:22); that His Word will judge us in the last day (John 12:48); that the church is founded upon the teaching of Christ and his apostles (Eph. 2:19-20); that God has instructed us to honor Christ above key representatives of the Old Covenant, Moses and Elijah (Matt. 17:1-8).
Holy Fire speaks of the Mother Goddess: Sophia, Zoe, etc:
This goddess then is clearly something more concise than an image of the starry sky;. Her knowledge of the future of the universe, of the orders of creation, suggest that she should be seen as the complete cycle of the ecliptic stars.
The Hindu goddess Svasti is regarded as the 'Goddess of the home and prosperity'. That her original domain is more profound can be deduced from her ancient symbol the swastika, said to represent 'cosmic procession and evolution around a fixed centre'. The prosperity that she guards is that of the entire cosmos. Her home is the Home of the Gods, as Plato explains in his description of her Greek equivalent Hestia;
'When Zeus the great captain of the host of heaven...rideth forth and disposeth and overseeth all things . Him followeth the army of Gods and Daemons in eleven orders, for Hestia alone abideth in the house of the gods.
But all of the twelve go forth and lead each one the order whereof he is appointed to be captain '
['Many blessed sights there be for eye to behold of blessed gods in their courses passing to and fro within the firmament of heaven']
That is to say, the twelve gods of the host of heaven, the zodiacal constellations, circle around 'the house of the gods', but the goddess remains at their centre, tending the Hearth of Heaven. Resource
Rubel Shelly sees the Exodus as a PATTERN for Christian faith and worship. But, the unspoken lust to get back BEYOND the Cross in events such as the Jubilee--which meant "for the atonement"--is to get FROM UNDER Jesus Christ.
