~~~~~~ Whose threshold do you enter? ~~~~~~
Ezekiel 43Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
43 Afterward he brought me to the gate, even the gate that looketh toward the east: 2 and, behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east: and his voice was like a noise of many waters: and the earth shined with his glory. 3 And it was according to the appearance of the vision which I saw, even according to the vision that I saw when I came to destroy the city: and the visions were like the vision that I saw by the river Chebar; and I fell upon my face. 4 And the glory of the Lord came into the house by the way of the gate whose prospect is toward the east. 5 So the spirit took me up, and brought me into the inner court; and, behold, the glory of the Lord filled the house. 6 And I heard him speaking unto me out of the house; and the man stood by me.
The Glory of God = Jesus Christ, resurrected into the image of God. He came from the way of the EAST. His VOICE = like MANY WATERS, OR PEOPLES. Rev 17.
Rev 21: …the Lamb’s wife… v11.. Having the GLORY OF GOD..
Rev 14: 2, I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of MANY WATERS…
So, this ties together the voice of many waters as being the voice of Christ or the GLORY OF GOD. The vision he had be the river Chebar is that of the living creature with the four faces, which is the Christ = Jesus and the Christians.
So now, this is the glory which came from the way of the East. In the vision above, he has come to destroy the city. So which city is this? The one steeped in IDOLATRY. It is the imposter, or the harlot city, (church) pretending to be the bride of Christ.
Why do you suppose it is that almost everyone is deceived by this harlot, which sits upon MANY WATERS? It is because of her pretense at religion. Her ‘things’ which she pretends is to worship God is just a copy and it is something that God HATES. His word is full of his hatred of this formal religion.
One of the most deceiving ideas is that of UNCONDITIONAL love. It is not taught in any Scripture. It is a trick of satan to keep you from God, since you do not ever attempt to meet HIS CONDITIONS.
God said in one place, my fear is taught after the precepts of man. They say, must go to church. God has never said that. They say must tithe to some preacher. God has never taught that. Tithing is a thing of OT law, to help feed the priest, who never had inheritance and to feed those who had nothing. But now I want you to watch what it is that God hates and how it deceives the masses.
7 And he said unto me, Son of man, the place of my throne, and the place of the soles of my feet, where I will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel for ever, and my holy name, shall the house of Israel no more defile, neither they, nor their kings, by their whoredom, nor by the carcases of their kings in their high places. 8 In their setting of their threshold by my thresholds, and their post by my posts, and the wall between me and them, they have even defiled my holy name by their abominations that they have committed: wherefore I have consumed them in mine anger. 9 Now let them put away their whoredom, and the carcases of their kings, far from me, and I will dwell in the midst of them for ever.
First, to understand truth you must learn that when God speaks of Israel or the Jews, he is speaking of the CHRISTIANS. Romans 2:28.
There is NOT two different peoples of God. There is NOT two different ways of salvation; one to them and another to us. You are ALL ONE.
What old Israel did to vex God is the very same thing about church which vexes God. They had defiled God’s Holy name, his throne and the place of the soles of his feet = earth. How did they defile these? Read the verses… by their whoredom, the carcases of their kings; and in setting of their THRESHOLD by God’s THRESHOLD.
By setting their post by God’s post, and thus was a wall between God and them.
Because of these things God consumed them in his ANGER.
Whoredom is the worship of idols. Not one church out there is free from this sin. They all worship idols. Even their ‘jesus’ is the idol and his ‘mother’ is the idol that the Catholic church brought up. It is not the Jesus of Scripture. Nothing they say about ‘him’ matches what God said about HIM in Scripture.
They keep all the idol holidays, so they are in whoredom against God.
But now watch this:
They set up their THRESHOLD by the THRESHOLD of God. What is that? Threshold is where you enter into the DOOR TO ENTER INTO A ROOM.
The place of ‘worship’ is supposed to be to WORSHIP GOD, right? You heart, mind and love should be solely on God and Jesus, right? You are not supposed to enter in to listen to some man; watch some man; keep your eyes and thoughts on some man, now is it? Is not this HIS THRESHOLD INSTEAD OF GOD’S THRESHOLD? Of course it is, to any honest person.
Whose church do you attend? Mr so-and so’s church. Who is teaching you today? Mr so-and-so. He blesses me. I learn from him. I obey him. who? mr so-and-so. whatever he says is the way I believe it. Jesus said, my father’s house is to be a house of PRAYER> so how much praying is done when you enter into that man’s threshold… , where you truly pray and seek God? Someone mumbles a minute of stuff, to pretend you are having a worship service. BUT do the people, I mean all of them, who enter into this threshold, PRAY? No, and no. and you all know it. You are there to see mr so-and-so. You give God nothing. He gives you nothing. When you leave this man’s threshold, you go out and forget about this stuff, until the next time you enter into mr so-and-so’s threshold. Then it is the same dead thing all over again. … until you die and drop off into hell fire.
The man whose threshold you enter each week, has USURPED THE PLACE OF GOD IN YOUR HEART, LIFE AND MIND. He has become your god. He came there seeking to be worshiped and to get your money, and you allowed that, for it is how you also want it…. see, no need for YOU to study the word of God…no need for you to really PRAY and seek God. No need for you to have your mind on Jesus and his truth. Mr so-and-so is all you want or need. So mr so-and-so has set up his threshold against God’s threshold. God will consume all who do this.
That mr so-and-so has set up his post by God’s post. He says, you just come and listen to ME and pay ME and all will be well. The entire group sits facing this one MAN, and adoring him. Even those who do not adore him, have their minds on him, one way or another. He is their god.
He tells you don’t you dare go to some other ‘hitching’ post when I have mine open. So there you sit, tied to mr so-an-so’ hitching post. He has you bound and totally deceived. You are not tied to God. You are tied to mr-so-and-so. Anyone who dares try to show you any truth in God’s word, is held in hate and slandered so no one will listen to them. That one is not tied to mr so-and so. So he is ostracized.
All of this has put up a wall between you and God. So because of this God is going to consume you and them. What else did God say you had vexed him over? Look at it: by the carcases of their kings in their high places.
The CARCASES of their ‘kings’?
Yes, they do set up some DEAD MAN’S words above God’s word. They sink everything of their hope for salvation, spirituality or healing on some DEAD MAN’S words and pretend miracles. They do not study the Word of God. They study the word of this CARCASE OF THEIR KING, THIS DEAD MAN. Even when it clearly goes against the Word of God, they continue to disbelieve the Scripture of God and uphold this dead carcase.
They do not seek to receive something personal from God, for he is not their god. This dead carcase is their god. They are content to listen to the lies of this dead man, over and over and over, never one time desiring to get into the Word of God and study and learn from God. They see no need for this; mr so- and -so has already
told them what to believe and they cling to the lies, no matter what God said to the contrary. So by this, they have angered God and he is going to CONSUME THEM. THIS WALL between them and God has blinded them and doomed their souls to destruction.
Jesus said we are all to be ONE BODY. No one is to be above another. Yet under this system of a church, all facing this one man, giving him all the say; holding others so low that they dare not even question what this dead carcase says, there can be no unity or equality among the members of the body. It is all on that one carcase who has set his threshold up instead of God’s threshold. When you enter, it is SUPPOSED TO BE TO GOD AND GOD ONLY; NOT TO MR SO-AND-SO.
But no sire. Let anyone try to correct this horrible error, and OUT THEY WILL THROW YOU. God called this WHOREDOM. You are the whore against God.
Now you may try to say this is only for the OT people. Not so. All of God’s word has spiritual truth for all people of all times. The spiritual mind can discern this. The carnal will never understand, for he is tied to mr so-and-so’s hitching post.
Amos 5: 10
They hate him that rebuketh in the gate,
and they abhor him that speaketh uprightly.
Forasmuch therefore as your treading is upon the poor,
and ye take from him burdens of wheat:
ye have built houses of hewn stone,
but ye shall not dwell in them;
You hate anyone who rebukes this gates evil. You hate those who speak uprightly and not what your dead carcase says. You take from the poor to build those houses of stone. God hates this.
v 21: I hate, I despise your feast days,
and I will not smell in your solemn assemblies.
Your ‘feast days’ are when you have your get-together, supposedly to feast on the word of God and worship. But it is a solemn assembly, no joy, no true praising of the true God, so HE hates it; he despises it. Now these are STRONG WORDS. YOU BEST HEED THEM.
You get together and SING. Yet this is what God thinks of it: verse 23..Take thou away from me the noise of thy songs;
for I will not hear the melody of thy viols.
Again, strong words. Take this stuff away from me; I do not want the NOISE OF YOUR SONGS. Why? because your heart is on that mr so-and-so. He has usurped the place of God in your heart.
Amos 6: 8…The Lord God hath sworn by himself,
saith the Lord the God of hosts,
I abhor the excellency of Jacob,
and hate his palaces:
therefore will I deliver up the city with all that is therein.
Palaces to God, is your ‘churches’. Yes, it is their fancy places of assembly or getting-together to listen to mr so-and-so. It is not for prayer, or worshipping God or loving every member of this body, and listening to each of them. It is setting up one man for worship. Even if that man is dead, he is still the object of their adoration, learning and therefore takes them away from seeking to get something For God for THEMSELVES. You cannot ride the coat-tail of another into those thresholds of God. You must come in all by yourself, to God and God only. Your fancy palace, or church, has taken you away from the true God. He is not the post you are tied to. This true God is to be worshipped everywhere and all the time. it is not in one certain place, or for one certain man. Jesus said, GO … YE… OUT.. into the highways and hedges and bring them in. He did not say, let them come to you. You are to get out to them.
Not what you see and hear in your palaces, now is it? Nope. Just sit down and listen to some tape. That is all you need. Just listen to what some man claims he did years ago. Do not seek the gifts of the Spirit for yourselves. You are doomed. listening to the dead…both dead bodily and dead in sins. Let God actually use a child of God today and you boo him. how dare you? You are not a PROPHET. See, they know not the word of God. The OT blinds you.
