The Divine Prime of Seven
The number seven represents Divine Perfection in the Holy Bible. (Gen. 2:2-3, Ps. 12:6) It is the divine prime number. Four represents completion. Ten represents government and law, and sometimes completion. The Ten Commandments are the complete spiritual laws for the entire universe. Is it only a coincidence that the first ten amendments to our Constitution is The Bill of Rights? There are also ten planks to the Communist Manifesto. [See Appendix I.]
There are fourbasic sevens in the book of Revelation. The seven messages to the churches, seven seals, seven trumpets, and seven last plagues are the complete divine revelation. The seven messages to the seven churches are warnings for correction and prophecy. The seven seals outline God’s divine plan, history, and future for mankind. The seven trumpets are divine judgments announcing Christ’s return as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. The seventh trumpet is the seven last plagues. The seven days of recreation week, seven timeline prophecies, seven messages, seven churches, seven seals, seven trumpets, and the seven last plagues, are seven sevens. [7 ´ 7 = 49] Pentecost is the counting of seven Sabbaths and adding one. Fifty is also the number for jubilee. (Lev. 23:15-16, 25:8-10) [72 + 1 = 50] There will be JUBILEE when Christ returns as King of kings! [At least for those prepared!]
The seven messages addressed to the seven churches were for edification. They had both good and bad aspects about them, and the church at Pergamos had two things against it. Those who held the doctrines of Ba’laam and the Nicolaitanes had infiltrated them. The falling away from the true gospel (The Gospel of the Kingdom of God) was predicted to happen before the return of Christ, and the Nicolaitanes are signaled out. (Rev. 2:12-17; 2 Th. 2:3-12, Act 6:9)
The doctrine of Ba’laam taught by Ba’lac was like that of Baalim as taught by the priests of Baal in the Old Testament. Baal (a Semitic word meaning lord, master, or husband) was the Canaanite deity or sun god. Shemesh was the Babylonian god of the spring sun. [The Hebrew word shemesh is translated sun throughout the Old Testament.] Ishtar (consort to Shemesh) was the Babylonian goddess of fertility (spring renewal and birth) and also known as Ashtaroth (Judges 2:13, 10:6; 1 Sam. 7:3-4, 12:10, 31:10), Ashtoreth (1 King 11:5; 2 King 23:13), and The Queen of Heaven (Jer. 44:18). The Babylonian Mystery Religion had its Greek and Roman parallels, but their mythologies had numerous variations. Most pagan religions had a sun or fire god. The Hebrew word for Lucifer is: Helyel – the bright and morning star. The sun of fire was his star, and Satan is the fallen Lucifer. The children of Israel constantly turned away from the true God and went whoring after the false god(s) of sun and/or fire.
The Nicolaitanes were a major sect of the Babylonian Mystery Religion and the seed of the apostate church that became more popular among the gentiles. The Greek word for Nicolaitanes is: Nikolaties – an adherent to Nicolaus, a teacher. From: Nikolaos – victorious over the people, a heretic named Nicolaus or Nicolas, a compound of: nikos (conquest, victory over) and loas (people in general). This sect became the harlot in Revelation 17. The Apostle Paul had warned of a falling away in his second letter to the Thessalonians. The Greek definitions for the key words are:
- falling – aspostello – to set apart. By implication, to send out on a mission. From: stello – to repress.
- away – apostasia – defection from the truth, or apostasy.
- Apostle – Apostolos – a delegate, an ambassador of the Gospel as commissioned by Christ.
The above definitions themselves prove there were false Apostles proclaiming an apostasy about Christ while the true Apostles as taught by Christ were proclaiming the true Gospel. (Rev. 2:2; 2 Cor. 11:13-15; Matt. 24:5, 15:9, 7:15-23; 1 Ti. 4:1-10) Jude 24 also warned of this falling. (aptaistos – not stumbling; fig. without sin – infallible)
The gentile converts were a very religious people within their pagan traditions. The Greeks were always ready to hear a new thing and well adept at mingling their philosophies. (Acts 17:16-23) Paul warned the Colossians not to be seduced by philosophy and men’s traditions. (Col. 2:8) A different wisdom was forming. The Hebrew word for WISDOMin Proverbs 9:1 is a feminine form of the prime word chakmowth. It is used only three other times. (Prov. 1:20, 24:7 and Ps. 49:3) In Proverb 9, she’s the fallen wisdom (Satan) that mingles truth with error (1-3). She speaks her mingled truths (4-12) then the first (alpha) true wisdom (Christ) rebukes her (13-18). She is the harlot that sits on seven pillars or mountains. (Ezek. 28:12-13; Prov. 8:22; Rev. 17:3, 18:7; Zech. 5:6-6:8) [The land of Shinar became the northwestern part of Babylon, which was also called Assyria. (Gen. 2:14) The city of Antioch located in the Roman providence of Asia (former Shinar) was the headquarters of early Christendom. (Acts 11:27-27) It is Antakya, Turkey today. Christian headquarters is now located in Vatican City, according to the Roman church.]
Fornication in scripture also means to mingle or proselytize with other beliefs. There is a scriptural clue as to whom the Nicolaitanes were. In Acts 6 we find Nicolas a proselyte of Antioch in verse 5 and Libertines in verse 9. You don’t have to be a Sherlock Holmes to combine Nicolas and Libertines to get Nicolaitanes. The certain of the synagogue are the gentile converts who suborned men (caused to commit perjury) to the council of Jews about the things Stephen was saying concerning Moses and the temple. They became jealous of the great wonders and miracles that Stephen performed, which they were unable to do because they were not able to resist (did not exercise by self-restraint – opposed) the wisdom and spirit by which he spake. It was the people that chose the seven men, and then the twelve laid their hands upon them, but that does not mean that the other six had the spirit like Stephen. At least four were the conspirators!
The seven messages to the seven churches also represent seven prophetic ages of the wilderness church. Their history would be difficult to follow because the church had to flee into the wilderness to escape persecution. (Rev. 12:6 & 14) I have read several good historical tracks by different authors. The one that seems to follow the path of this prophetic church best was given by Herbert Armstrong in his book, MysteryoftheAges. Utilizing secular history, various essays, books like LostChristianities, and especially scripture, I offer the following as a brief history of the wilderness church.
*Ephesus (Rev. 2:1-7) This era was the early church that Christ began building through his Apostles. The message warned of false apostles who were found to be liars. (1 Jn. 2:3-7) Their first works was proclaiming the Gospel of the Kingdom of God. (Luke. 4:43; Mk. 4:11; Acts 28:21-31) The Apostates began preaching a gospel about Christ. (Matt. 24:4-5) Their adaptation of the popular pagan customs gained them more followers and money. (Jn. 10:12-13; Acts 16:16-21) The true Gospel and faith in and of Christ was being turned into mysticism and ritualistic pagan practice, and true salvation (by grace alone) through repentance (a reversal from sin) turned into license to sin. (Gal. 4:8-11; Jude 4; Mk. 7:6-23; 1 Jn. 3:4, 5:2-3; Eph. 2:4-9; Jas. 2:10-20) The faithful followers of this era grew weary and became slack in their first love, but did despise the Nicolaitanes’ deeds, which thing the Lord also hated. This first church era has very few historical records and is commonly known as the dark period.
*Smyrna (Rev. 2:8-11) Church history emerges after the dark period with two distinct types of Christianity with each having a variety of sects. The majority apostates had forsaken the Lord’s Sabbath and worshipped on Sunday, the vernal day of the sun. In 321 AD, Constantine acknowledged Christianity as an official state religion and made Sunday rest (excluding agriculture) a civil law. The apostate church had gained state recognition and used their newfound authority to persecute the apostolic church. After Constantine’s death in 337, the Catholic Council of Laodicea (364 AD) wrote their most famous cannon: “Christians shall not Judaize and be idle on Saturday, but shall work on that day; but the Lord’s Day (Sunday), they shall especially honor, and, as being Christians, shall, if possible, do no work on that day. If, however, they are found Judaizing, let them be shut out from Christ.” (The History of the councils of the Church, Vol. II, pg. 316) This proves Christians were keeping the Sabbath! Can a council of men shut out from Christ those keeping his Holy Commandment? (Rom. 8:35) Just who do you think this council was working for by changing God’s fourth Commandment? (Dan. 7:25) It surely was not Jesus Christ! It must have been that other angel of light. (2 Cor. 11:14)
Shemesh was the Babylonian Lord of Sunday, vernal day of the sun. The sun was restored on the first day of recreation week. Satan is the fallen Lucifer who was the bright and morning star (sun). God made the Seventh Day Sabbath by resting from his work. Should we rest and worship God on his first workday? Thou shalt have no other gods before me is the first commandment. The fourth is remembering and keeping the Sabbath. LINK the two commandments together, and thus saith the Lord: Thou shalt have no other rest and worship day before, after, or any other than MINE! Can men change God’s mind and his commandments? (Heb. 13:8; Mal. 3:6; Prov. 24:21)
*Pergamos (Rev. 2:12-17) This era began with the reign of the Papacy in 538 AD. Those few who kept the true faith had fled to the wilderness. (Rev. 12:6 & 14) They suffered great persecution and martyrdom. The Harlot was in control of the Holy Roman Empire and anyone that did not obey and honor her dictates was excommunicated, tortured, or murdered, but usually all three. The true flock was drastically reduced in size but carried the truth through the Dark Ages under constant persecution. The Roman Church had introduced image worship at their seventh general council, the second of Nicaea in 787 AD. Rev. 12:13 states that the Lord knows the location of Satan’s seat. Antipas in Greek means anti-father, and in Latin anti-pope. (Matt. 23:8-12, 20:25-28; Luke 20:45-47; Rev. 17:1-6) [Rev. 12:13 is the only place the word, term, or name (authority) “Antipas” is used in Scripture and is futuristic.]
*Thyatira (Rev. 2:18-29) This era approximates the 12th through 15th centuries. During the late 12th century, Peter Waldo led a small group of followers called the Waldenses. Living in the Alpine Valleys of Southern France and Northern Italy, most were observing the Seventh Day Sabbath. They worked hard at hand producing copies of the Gospels and other single books of Scripture. The printing press was not invented until 1451, and complete copies of the Bible were rare and precious. The Roman Church had forbidden the common people to have Bibles and caused them to worship as the Papacy dictated. The Waldenses suffered great persecution by the Papal Inquisitors, and Pope Innocent VIII issued a Papal Bull to totally exterminate them in 1487. The Sabbatarian Christians were super de-sized! (Dan. 7:21, 25; Rev. 13:7, 17:6) Their Bibles and other scriptural manuscripts were burned. [Isn’t Innocent a rather unusual name for a murderer? This beast riding, ruthless whore’s past can be found in most books of Inquisition history.] Jezebel in Greek means false teacher.
*Sardis (Rev. 3:1-6) This era describes a few that have not defiled their garments. A small remnant of the Waldenses fled from the persecution by the Roman and Spanish Inquisitors and began to migrate toward Normandy and the British Isles. They quietly keep the Seventh Day Sabbath in the seclusion of their poverty, but a different type of persecution was beginning to emerge.
During the late 15th and early 16th century, there was an uprising within the Roman Church. Many began to doubt her authority, and this was the first call for those professing the name of Christ to come out of her. The protestant reformation had caused many religious wars, but a few Sabbatarian Christians had already found their way to Northwestern Europe and Great Britain. In 1650, a small group of Sabbatarians established a church calling themselves Seventh Day Baptists in England, but English Puritanism holding fast to most of the Roman Church’s doctrines and traditions soon engulfed them.
Protestants and Catholics persecuted each other during their religious wars, which were known as The Thirty Years War (1618-1648). Both persecuted the Sabbatarians! During the 16th and 17th centuries, the reformers’ greatest impediments were the Church of England as well as the Roman Church, but as prophesied in Rev. 12:16, the new world had opened its doors to religious freedom as well as a land of new opportunity. Vast numbers of Protestants crossed the Atlantic in pursuit of freedom and liberty to practice their faiths. The Sabbatarians had also found their prophesied eagle wings. Freedom of religionwas a second calling for Christians to come out of Babylon. (Rev. 18:4; Job 33:14; Jude 11-12)
Although the Protestants began their exodus to freedom, they carried the Harlot’s baggage with them like the children of Israel when coming out of Egypt. (Ezek. 20) Many protestant denominations were born during the reformation, but soon after their early founding fathers died, they established their individual creeds and maintained many essential doctrines and traditions of the mother church. THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS had given birth to many daughters.
The first American Sabbath keeping church was founded in the colony of Rhode Island in 1672. In 1636, a settlement was founded and established at Providence, RI by Roger Williams, who was a Baptist separatist fleeing persecution by the Massachusetts Puritans. The Puritans wanted to maintain a connection with the Church of England, but Williams insisted on the separation from the central authority of men and independent religious thought. He established the first Baptist church in America in 1639, but he later changed his views and recognized no one true church. In 1644 Williams secured a charter for the new colony of Rhode Island that guaranteed its independence and secured its boundaries against encroachments by its orthodox neighbors, Massachusetts and Connecticut. Today, the Puritans are known as the Anglican Church of America.
Rhode Island became the first colony in America to be founded on the principles of freedom of religious expression and separation of church and state. Stephen Mumford, a Seventh Day Baptist, came to Rhode Island from England in 1664. Finding no one that kept the Seventh Day Sabbath, he began fellowshipping with the local First Baptist congregation on Sundays, but kept the Sabbath privately. Several members noticed and began keeping the Sabbath with him. They established the first Seventh Day Baptist Church in America. Their historical record exists in the museum at Newport. A second congregation was later established at Hopkinton, but persecution by First Baptist’s and other Sunday churches forced them westward.
During the Advent Movement of the early 1800’s, the year of Christ’s second coming was predicted through the teachings of William Miller. After the Great Disappointment of 1844, many of his followers departed. The movement yielded two other Sabbatarian groups. The Church of God Seventh Day believes Christ will return and reign for 1000 years over a live earth. The Seventh Day Adventists believe the earth will lie dead during that period. (Rev. 20:3-7) They both retained the doctrine of God’s true Sabbath.
*Philadelphia (Rev. 3:7-13) The open door (intense portal) for this era was the beginning of radio and television. Out of the Church of God Seventh Day, the Radio Church of God was started under the leadership of Herbert Armstrong (1892-1986) and later became the Worldwide Church of Godduring the early television age. Many scriptural truths lost throughout the centuries were recovered. The Gospel of the Kingdom of God was broadcast worldwide on The World Tomorrow program, and many free booklets were offered for the asking. The church grew into the world’s largest Sabbath keeping congregation following World War II, but something caused the church to split apart and scatter after Armstrong died.
In 1988 I began taking some Bible courses offered by the Worldwide COG Ambassador College. I later requested the number and address of a local minister, but for some reason I delayed until 1992. When I did call, I received a cursing out, and what sounded like chaotic screaming of demons in the background. That scared me so much, I did little Bible study during the next seven years and did not really care for any kind of a church. In 1999 and after my conscience meltdown following 5 days on a civil jury, I found an advertisement about a Pentecost Feast service being held in a town about an hour and a half drive. It turned out to be a small splinter group from the Worldwide Church of God. It did not take long to get their account of what happened just prior to and after Armstrong’s death.
After the long drive became difficult, I began alternating between them and a closer Seventh Day Adventist group on Sabbaths. I soon learned about the history of the Miller movement in the 1800’s. I found some teachings of Ellen G. White to be biblically erroneous, and any other understanding was forbidden. Then the other group turned my re-baptism into a party. I felt disappointment by both and have remained to myself in independent study. I still believed that the Lord had something for me to do, but all I could see at the time was that which is written in scripture, Satan, which deceiveth the whole world. (Rev. 12:9) I began to dissect the Bible utilizing the Strong’s Concordance. (Acts 17:11; Zech. 11:15-16) Hungry for scriptural truth, I started my own Comprehensive Scripture Investigation or CSI.
*Laodiceans (Rev. 3:14-22) We are in this last and final era now. The events stated in verses 15-17 happened to the Worldwide Church of God. There are also separatists within the Seventh Day Adventists. David Koresh and his followers in Waco, Texas were one such group. Today, some are hot, some cold, but the majority are the thousands of lukewarm groups scattered around the world. Some still preach and teach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God, but where is the latter days’ message for God’s people to come out of Babylon? The gold tried in the fire in Rev. 3:18 is as gold is tried in Zech. 13:9. The Lord will soon return! Those held captive by the harlot are in a state of delusion. She must be stripped, exposed, her mark identified, and the truth widely published. The true shepherds have become lazy while false shepherds are eating the fat of the flocks. (Zech. 11-14; Ezek. 33-34; Jer. 50-51; Is. 13 & 56) [The missing link in following the path of the wilderness church’s history was following the Sabbatarians’ trail.]
Revelation 6 reveals the book with seven seals and only the Lamb of God is found worthy to open them. The first four seals opened are commonly called The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. The four faces of the middle Pyramid at Giza (present Adam) are symbolic to the four horses and Satan is at the pinnacle of their control. Man is the rider of each horse, and the four corners are the foundation of his fall with three aspects per face. [Think of it as like a merry-go-round with the four slopes as the rein for each horse.] The format for their description will be: (horse number) – color – (color representation) – three historical aspects of man’s fall:
(1) white (pestilence) – innocence – disobedience – curse
(2) red (war) – violence -murder – rebellion
(3) black (famine) – natural disasters – food control – starvation
(4) pale (death) – curse – disobedience – innocence/original loss
Envy, lust, and desire lead to man’s fall from the beginning of his original innocence, and by his disobedience through free moral agency (freedom of choice) he brought on himself the curse of death. (Gen. 3) The tree with the knowledge of good and evil looked good for food (envy), was pleasant to the eyes (lust), and desired (coveted). Choosing to disobey God caused the loss of their innocence and access to the tree of life or immortality. Later, Cain became jealous of Abel and spilled the first blood. (Gen. 4:1-10) The rest is like a merry–go–round of human history. As the end time draws nearer, the merry-go-round will begin to spin out of control. (Dan. 12:1) [See Appendix IV]
The fifth seal in Rev. 6:9-11 was opened during Christ’s crucifixion. (Matt. 27:50-53) The Old Testament Saints arose from their graves and appeared unto many. When Christ resurrected three eves latter, he gave them white robes and told them that they should rest (return to sleep – to repose) yet for a little season (time), until their fellow servants should be killed. Christ is the pinnacle of the Great Pyramid. He is building its foundation for His Kingdom by calling out the elect who will join the reposed fifth seal saints when he returns to set up the Kingdom (Government) of God on Earth.
We now await the sixth seal, which are the signs in the heavens pointing to the coming of Christ. (Rev. 6:12-17; Luke. 21:10-11; Jer. 10:2) This comes immediately after great tribulation because the Lord said so! (Matt. 24:29) The great earthquake will most likely destroy the Dome of the Rock, unless some zealous Jews or Christians haven’t blown it up by then. If this earthquake doesn’t get it, then the last one surely will. (Rev. 16:18; Zech. 14:4) It will be like the time that Daniel spoke about, but many will be happy to see it destroyed.
There will be an attempt to explain away these signs, but those who know the truth won’t buy it. The explanation will probably be a polarity shift of the earth’s magnetic poles that many scientists believe will happen and is past due. The color spectrum’s electromagnetic frequencies passing through a reversed magnetic field would cause greater atmospheric visual effects than that of the Aurora Borealis. A magnetic shift in the poles would most surely cause all the magnetic material in the earth’s crust to shakewhen re-polarized. It would also cause a communication blackout because all our planet’s communication systems work on electromagnetic pulse. It would require some time (about 21 days) to re-polarize all the planet’s communication equipment. (Is. 24:1, 10, 23)
The seventh seal in Rev. 8:1 immediately follows the sixth seal and was (holding) silence in the heavens (sky). That which is done in heaven is cast upon the earth. (Rev. 8:3-5/6:12-17) Utilizing prophetic math, 1000 man-years to one God-day, and 48 half-hours in a 24-hour day: [1000 ¸ 48 = 20.8] The reciprocal of the year to the day principle is a day to the year. The 20.8 years are 21 days (3 weeks) a global communication blackout takes place between the sixth and seventh seals. Recall the math in Chapter VI? This is the prophetic mathematical reciprocal. It will be a period of mourning and silence. (1 Sam. 2:9-10; Is. 41:1, 47:5; Hab. 2:20; Zech. 2:13; Prov. 1:20-33)
The seventh seal is the seven trumpets preparing to sound, which will be a full year of judgments that will come to pass over the entire world. (Rev. 8:1-6) It is called The Great Day of the Lord! (Zeph. 1:14, Mal. 4:5, Jer. 30:7, Rev. 6:17) Recreation week was 7 days – judgment week (seven seals) will be 7 years! It is the “Time of Jacob’s Trouble” (seven years).
*******TRUMPETS AND PLAGUES*******
The seven trumpets are the seventh seal. The first six trumpets are sounded in Rev. 8:6 through 9:21, and the seventh in chapter 16. There have been many interpretations for these events in both the literal and figurative senses. It does not matter how you interpret the method of causes in each trumpet event because the result will be the same! The locusts in the fifth trumpet are not Apache helicopters; however, the sixth trumpet does sound like nuclear weapons. When man created the first elements that did not naturally exist, the first thing he made was a weapon of mass destruction. Would it be divine justice if God told the sixth angel to utilize man’s own creation?
The great burning mountain in Rev. 8:8 is best defined as a volcano. It was cast (thrust up) into the sea. The Greek for cast is: ballo – to throw, arise, cast out, and thrust up. Comparable with: rhipto – to fling (through the idea of sudden motion). A third of the world’s shipping moves on the Atlantic Ocean, which has earth’s deepest volcanic depths. Will we see some evidence of The Lost City of Atlantis?
Revelation 10-15 is an intermission between the sixth and seventh trumpets giving more detail of the overall prophecy. The seventh trumpet is the seven last plagues that will be poured out on man’s systems of government and religion, and those with the mark of the beast. (Rev. 16) When It is done! Christ will return, stand on the Mount of Olives, destroy the armies fighting against Jerusalem, and subdue all thenations. (Rev. 19:11-20:6; Zech. 14; Is. 24-35)
When reading Revelation 16 very carefully, you will notice that no humans are killed by the seven plagues, unless they live in the sea. How can people blaspheme God if they are dead? The fourth plague is not global warming but may be directly related to the fourth commandment. The armies that gather to fight the Lord will be killed. The remaining third of man brought through the fire will come under the reign of Christ and his Saints. (Zech. 13:9; Matt. 24:22; Rev. 20:4-6) The first order of business will be the gathering of Israel’s remnant, then the burying of the dead for seven months (Is. 10:20-23, 11:11-12; Jer. 23:3-6; Ezek. 39:11-14). The New City and Temple will be built, the land divided, and a pure system of worship established. Then, and only then, will there be peace on earth! (Ezek. 40-48; Is. 2:4)
All the trumpets have fire, burning, falling stars and/or the sun’s scorching heat in common. Connect these links: anointed cherub – fallen Lucifer – Satan – bright and morning star – sun – fire – false sun gods – lord of the vernal day of the sun – Sunday. God separated light from darkness on the first day of recreation week (Sunday), made man on the sixth day (Friday), and the Sabbath by resting from his work on the seventh day (Saturday) while giving Adam the commandments, then freedom of choice beginning day one – week two.
There has been much debate about establishing world democracy, and the theocratic rule of any religion not being compatible with democracy. The coming Kingdom of God will be a Theocratic Monarchy and mortal humans will not have any ruling authority. Jesus Christ will be KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS! There will be no ifs, ands, or buts about it. What the Lord has said he will do, HE WILL DO. There will be no elections! There will be no petitions of grievousness and no protests!
Today, people elect politicians who can raise the most money, sell the best platform, make the most promises, and really talk the talk. The 2008 Damnocritical Particularism Primatology was the most ridiculous display of childishness, schoolyard bullying, and religious teasing I’ve ever seen. The general election wasn’t a grand display of civil campaigning either. [I now have to take that back. 2020 is about one slur from an abomination!] If Jesus Christ were to run for president, which party would he run under? He’s not going to run for a damn thing! He is going to return and subdue all nations and THANK GOD NO MORE ELECTIONS! (Rev. 11:15, 19:11-16)
The system of government our forefathers founded was the best system (republic) that man could possibly design. It is a shame we have made a demockery of it. We were guaranteed freedom of religious practice (this is where freedom of choice is implied) speech, press, and peaceful assembly. The ACLU forbids the other option of man’s existence being taught in public schools. Christian adoption information and views of life are not allowed in public abortion clinics as an alternative option. Is that pro-choice? Does denying options support freedom of choice in any matter or issue?
I think that options in all things should be available, but that does not mean that we can pervert the sacredness of such long held institutions as marriage and the Ten Commandments. God will be the judge of man’s choices! I strongly support the separation of church and state in man’s governments and religions, but I do not support the church being thrown out of the state when the issues are based on freedom of choice. We are all endowed with that right by our creator!
The real choice is between good and evil, but the reasoning of man has turned that choice into the lesser of two evils. I hope and pray all people will choose to trust Jesus Christ as Savior, Lord, and King. The third that is brought through the fire most surely will! (Zec. 13:9; Is. 66:23; Jer. 23:5; Rev. 12:5, 19:15, 20:4; Prov. 22:15)
