“Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.”  Psa. 119:160.

“For the word of the Lord is right; and all his works are done in truth.” Psa 44:3

This is my effort to expose the lies taught about God’s word, the Bible, which overlay the entire earth, and grow like a cancer.  All truth comes from the Scriptures of God, and as God is the Creator of all, the Most High, and the Great I AM, the Scriptures must be our standard.  The Bereans were using the scriptures to check Paul’s teaching. (Acts 17:11)

The posts begin at the bottom right margin with scriptural evidences for the first century A.D. fulfillment of the OT prophesies in the series It’s Not The End of The World – Parts I – X.   If you have not yet heard these evidences from the scriptures it would be best to start with Part I of this series and work up through the rest of the posts.

I promise to faithfully state the scriptures, to the best of my ability, but all readers beware.  I am only the created of God, and am not perfect.  Please check the Bible to see if what I have written is so!

Because of their fear, the Hebrew teachers, rabbis, and scribes played games with God’s name.  All we can know of His name is the tetragrammaton YHWH (or YHVH), which some people pronounce as “Yahweh”, or others as “Yahoveh”.   As the rabbis and scribes deliberately inserted vowel markers from “Elohim” and “Adonai”, I do not have any assurance that either of the two pronunciations are correct, but I do favor the latter “Yahoveh”.

I will refer to God by several of His appellations found in His word: our Heavenly Father, the Most High, our Creator, the great I AM, or others.  In all instances I am always referring to the God of the Bible, the God of Abraham, Jacob, Isaac, and Moses.

The King James Version of 1611 is still one of the few translations in the English language of the original Hebrew and Greek texts which is reliable for not only the meaning of the words but their connotations in most cases.   The errors that are known can be identified by cross checking with either Young’s Literal Translation, or the American Standard.  I highly recommend reading both the King James and Young’s in tandem.

Whereas all translations have a few errors from the original texts, a few are so egregious they are recognizable as having underlying agendas to promote particular interpreted beliefs and world views, and the lies which this work will highlight.  Therefore those versions cannot be considered a source of God’s truth.  Some of those translations are the NIV, the Scofield Reference Bible, and the Catholic bibles.  In a search for what the Bible really says, it is best to use only the translations tested through time.

All of the definitions and “codes” of the New Testament and the prophesy of Revelation are found in the Old Testament.  As no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation (II Pet 1:20), we will rely upon the clarity of God’s word, checking between both Old and New Testaments to test our understanding.  We will not do as so many have, and twist God’s word to suit our beliefs or desires.  We will not parse, remove from context, pass judgment on, or delete or add to God’s word.

This work will stand on God’s word, and use His truth to shred the veil of lies spread around the world.

    Hi, just to note, in observing the Gathering of the Elect at ” Excerpt from Benson Commentary on Matt. 24:3-5,” where “See especially Hebrews 9:36; and 1 Corinthians 10:11.” should read Hebrews 9:26 not 9:36.

    Dear Gina,

    I most confess that althought I am not sure of God’s existence (I am in the searching of truth), I am grateful to found such a wonderful website, which surely help me in clear many of my doubts. Also, I strongly would recommend you to write a book about all the information and knowledge that you have collected. Would you mind to share any e-mail where can I contact you?

    Hi Gina,
    I’m so glad to read all abt what is the truth. It took me some time to get out of the futuristic view of Revelations. But has all of Revelations happened already? Even where Satan is thrown into the lake of fire?

    Like

    1. Yes, “..the diablos (devil) the [one] deceiving them was cast into the lake of fire…” Rev. 20:10 Interlinear. The trick is to know how the word “diablos” and / or “satan” is used in the original Gr & Heb. These words in the original languages are not names; they are job functions. Any one that deceived the ppl, or stood against God was an enemy or adversary.
      The word “diablos” means literally a slanderer, false accuser, or deceiver. There were many false accusers, and one who was deceiving the ppl in the 1st century AD. We often discuss who that “one” was and some center on the high priest of the sanhedrin who denied Jesus as the Messiah. But, which specific one is hard to determine as we are 2,000 years removed from the 1st cent. AD, and the written records we have offer multiple choices. God knows.

      The word “satan” in the Hebrew is “ha satan” or “the adversary”. Any one standing against God, mostly those worshiping idols, were adversaries. Jerome capitalized “satan” when translating the Septuagint into the Latin Vulgate. It is not that way in the original Heb.

      We do not say “the Joe”, or “the Mike”, or “the Bill” when speaking of individual ppl or things. We do say “the doctor”, or “the nurse”, or “the judge”, etc. “ha satan”, the adversary was not a name. It was a title of anyone that was opposed to Jesus Christ and the apostles / disciples.

      There have been many adversaries throughout the ages / centuries who stood against God. But the Angel of the Lord called Himself “ha satan” (the adversary) who stood against Balaam and his donkey in Num. 22:22.

      The correct way to view the diablos / devil of Rev. 20 is of the deceiver that operated, or was present in that time working against God and His Son, and His “ecclesia.” That adversary and deceiver was judged and thrown into the “lake of fire.”

    Dearly beloved Gina, I found your website today and i’m excited at how much time and energy you’ve put into unveiling the truth of God’s word. I am going to take time and read all you have explained. I came here from Stack exchange as i did a little more research on the message of end times which for years now, i have refused to believe it is as preached(I believe it has all happened). I only started doing a little deeper research on this topic again because most churches are staring to teach about the end times and Christ coming due to this Covid-19 challenge the world is facing. Since i studied the scripture that said “you need no man to teach you but this same spirit teaches you all truth”(1 John 2:27), I have learned to trust the Holy Spirit’s teaching and since then, I have consistently received in my spirit what i believe to be true about who we are and where we are with God and his time. I believe that we are in the era of the sons of God, oneness with God and that awareness and practice of this new kind of life will bring to manifest the much spoken evolution of humanity to Godliness as the scripture said “we shall not all die, but we shall all be changed”. In all reality, i believe that we have eternal life now and only those with the consciousness and expectation of leaving their bodies(physical death) will experience such. Lately, my spirit has been dwelling on this truth about eternal life and the “corruptible putting on incorruptible” which was highlighted in Romans 8:11 that “the spirit of God will quicken(immortalize) the mortal body”… is this talking about regeneration of cells maybe? In general, i would appreciate a reply(in form of validation or scriptural explanation) of each if not most of what i pointed out as my truth or experiences. Sorry for the long introduction. All the best.

    1. I am happy you found your way here! Yes, those who are in Christ already have eternal life. Rom. 6:8-9, “And if we died with Christ, we believe that we also shall live with him, 9 knowing that Christ, having been raised up out of the dead, doth no more die, death over him hath no more lordship;” And, John 5:24, ” Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.”

      That’s assuming we stay faithful unto death, and do not turn away from Him, or reject the gift of His Son’s sacrifice for us (Rev. 2:10). This mortal body will decay and finally fail us. But as Paul has said, when our physical carnal bodies die, we will be changed in a twinkling of an eye (1 Cor. 15:51-52). The Bible does not tell us what our eternal body will be like, except that Paul implied in his seed analogy that it will be much more beautiful (1 Cor. 15:35-38).

      But, as we are to have an eternal body, and as Paul stated that FLESH AND BLOOD cannot inherit the kingdom (1 Cor. 15:50) then, whatever immortal body God gives us, it won’t be a regeneration of these cells. Mary, while weeping in the garden did not at first recognize Christ. Was that because He hid himself from her, and then changed form? Or just allowed her to see a different form? And, the two He walked with on the way to Emmaus did not recognize Him either while He was with them until just before He disappeared from view (Luke 24:13). But, the apostles and disciples who saw Him later recognized Him. And, as He appeared inside the room with them, then He “transported” between walls and doors. So, we can conclude that whatever form our eternal bodies will be, they will have a different set of physics higher than this earthly form we now enjoy.

      I am just always astounded at the fervor of those who misplace the future verbs and tenses of the (NT) 1st century AD scriptures and make them last for 2,000 years and counting, who do not recognize that they are stripping the rejoicing from our salvation in Christ. By denying that He completed everything of the promise in that same generation in which He died on the cross, they are denying our eternal nature now. They are denying the most spectacular and joyful surety of being in Him. They exchange that joy for the worry and fear that is the result of the futurist view of an end-of-the-world “coming” of a literal burning fire. How absolutely sad. How absolutely they deny the victory of Christ over death.

      When we stand up out of that watery grave of our “baptism” (our true resurrection), our immersion into Christ, then we already have eternal life. We will endure the passing moments from the mortal to the immortal, but I am convinced that an angel will be there to accompany us and take us home. I witnessed my grandmother’s passing moments when she looked right past my shoulder at some one whom I could not see. Those of in Christ have nothing to fear, and that is the main reason I am writing these posts – to take away the fear that the futurist dogma engenders. May God bless you greatly.

  6. Hi Gina. I’m confused on one point. If everyone was caught up to meet the Lord in the air in the first century, why were there still Christians afterward? Or were there actually none left? Thanks.

    Like

    1. Welcome Ruminator! This is a confusing point for many because they are approaching it from an assumed bias, and they forget a very important verse. Heb. 9:27, (YLT) “and as it is laid up to men once to die, and after this — judgment,” Every one has to live their life in this earthly realm, and face bodily death before facing the judgment seat of God. Paul stated “we which are alive and remain shall be caught up” (1 Thess. 4:17), but the natural process of the bodily death is underlying his statement. Those who remained, who survived the battle of the destruction of Jerusalem would live out their earthly lives, & endure their carnal bodily death. Only after that would they be caught up in the clouds and taken home to heaven to be with the others who had gone before them.

      Young’s translates 1 Thess. 4:17 a little better. ” then we who are living, who are remaining over, together with them shall be caught away in clouds to meet the Lord in air, and so always with the Lord we shall be;” “Together with them” does not mean at the same time; only in the same manner. Those who had died before in the persecutions, or during the first Roman-Jewish wars had already gone home to be with the Lord (John 17:24). So to be together with them means they would join them in heaven after their bodily death. As will we be caught up in the air and taken home to be where they are after our bodily death.

      This concept is explained further in the post below “Gathering of the Elect”. Also recommend this in conjunction with the considerations of the “translations” / change of state of Enoch & Elijah as expressed in the post “Frequent Mistakes – Part VII:…” below.

    1. Yes. In context, all of 1 Thess. 4:13-18 fall under the discussion of “those who have fallen asleep”. At the time Paul wrote this letter, it predated the destruction of the temple, and Hades still existed. Those who had already fallen asleep that were in “Paradise” (Luke 17) or “God’s garden” or “Abraham’s Bosom” were the faithful, either under the Mosaic covenant or the NT gospel of Christ. He united them all, and announced that same good news of the kingdom being at hand when He went to preach to those spirits in prison (1 Pet. 3:19) after His death on the cross (Luke 23:43).

      So all those faithful spirits of either the Old Covenant or of the New Covenant became joined in Christ (Heb. 9:13-15; Eph. 2:11-16). This is the symbolism of the 24 elders in Rev. 4 & 5 worshiping the Father around the throne. The 12 patriarchs representing the 12 tribes of Israel under the Old Covenant, and the 12 apostles representing the new testament gospel of Christ.

  7. Hi Gina. I have another question if you have a minute. When might this universal adoration occur or have occurred on the earth/land?

    [Rev 5:13 NIV] (13) Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, saying: “To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever!”

    It doesn’t seem to fit my current line of thinking.

    Thanks.

    1. Rev chap 5 is the throne scene at the ascension of Christ, vs. 6 the Lamb just slain as prophesied in Dan. 7:13-14. The context is of His glory and power; of His worthiness to open the scroll – Daniel’s scroll that had been sealed until the the time of the end (Dan 12:4). Rev. chap 5 was the figurative imagery of Christ receiving His glory and the everlasting kingdom that Daniel had been told would be given over to the saints. It is the vision of the establishment of that kingdom in that judgment would sit (Dan. 7:26-27). All creatures in heaven and on the earth, under the earth and under the sea (the realm of the dead) is the imagery of the recognition of Christ’s authority to judge (John 5:21-28), and that all would hear His voice. It is the imagery that all would praise Him. This occurred at His ascension, as He had already gone to preach to those in prison (Paradise / Hades) the day He died (1 Pet. 3:19). So, it depicted events in or about AD 30-31. The 40 year gap between His ascension and the end destruction of the temple in AD 70 was the time of transition between the old covenant Jerusalem, and the new covenant Jerusalem, the time to broadcast the gospel to every creature under heaven (Col 1:2-3), that is under the ruling authority of the Roman empire – that 4th beast kingdom. So, 1st century AD. All of His saints have been praising Him ever since. The universal nature of that moment was depicting His universal authority over all kingdoms of the earth (Dan. 7:18, 27) in that all would obey Him, one way or another.

      1. Creature from Greek 2938 Ktisma – created thing. For the newly created as from Thayer’s Gr. Lexicon, “κτίσμα, κτισματος, τό (κτίζω); thing founded; created thing; (Vulg.creatura) (A. V. creature): 1 Timothy 4:4; Revelation 5:13; Revelation 8:9 (Wis. 9:2 Wis. 13:5); contextually and metaphorically, κτίσμα Θεοῦ, transformed by divine power to a moral newness of soul, spoken of true Christians as created anew by regeneration (others take it here unrestrictedly), James 1:18 (see ἀπαρχή, metaphorically, a.; also κτίζω under the end, κτίσις, 2 a.); τά ἐν ἀρχή κτισματα Θεοῦ, of the Israelites, Sir. 36:20 (15). ((Strabo, Dionysius Halicarnassus)) ”

        From Ktisis, Strong’s Gr 2937 – creation. Thayer’s Gr Lex: #2, “2. equivalent to κτίσμα, creation i. e. thing created (cf. Winers Grammar, 32); used a. of individual things and beings, a creature, a creation: Romans 1:25; Hebrews 4:13; any created thing, Romans 8:39; after a rabbinical usage (by which a man converted from idolatry to Judaism was called חֲדָשָׁה בִּרִיָה (cf. Schöttgen, Horae Hebr 1:328, 704f)), καινή κτίσις is used of a man regenerated through Christ, Galatians 6:15; 2 Corinthians 5:17. ”

        So then every creature in heaven and on earth might better be read as every newly created / regenerated soul in Christ.

The only problem I have with his position is he teaches that baptism / immersion is not necessary. Something about it only being applicable to the first century AD churches. I do not agree with that, as there is not a time limit to Mark 16:16, and Gal. 3:26-29, etc. But overall he does a good work.

    1. Hey, Ruminator. Good point.

      The work of the plan of salvation followed the outline of the feast days. Christ was born most probably on the 1st of Tishri, the Feast of Trumpets, 6 mos after His cousin John was born (Luke 1:26-28) which would have been 6 mos earlier on the feast calendar. So John’s birth would have been around the spring feast days of Passover.

      Jesus was crucified when the lambs were being slaughtered in Jerusalem on the day of Passover. He was resurrected on the 3rd day, which was the first day of the week after the Sabbath Passover (Lev. 23:4-8) celebrating the first fruits of the harvest. His church was established on the day of Pentecost, the 50th day after that Passover Sabbath (Lev. 23: 9-11).

      God’s plan was set out by the calendar of the feast days. The feast days reflected and forecast His timeline. Therefore, we can also know that He followed the same calendar of the fall feast days. First of Tishri was also known as the Yom Hadin, or Day of Judgment (Lev. 23:24), which was when the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem was FINISHED. The next feast day was on the 10th of Tishri (Lev. 23:27-32) was Yom Kippur, day of atonement, also called the day of verdict. That was when judgment began, the opening of the gates of Hades (Matt. 25:31-46) when He separated out all those who had been assigned to the correct area of the grave until the establishment of His kingdom was completed, FINISHED.

      So, in the fall feast days, after the destruction of the temple and the city (Matt. 22:1-14), the work of the plan of salvation, and bringing in the fullness of His kingdom was the finishing of the work which Gabriel had told Mary would happen. Gabriel had encapsulated that work in 4 short verses:

      “30 And the messenger said to her, `Fear not, Mary, for thou hast found favour with God; 31 and lo, thou shalt conceive in the womb, and shalt bring forth a son, and call his name Jesus; 32 he shall be great, and Son of the Highest he shall be called, and the Lord God shall give him the throne of David his father, 33 and he shall reign over the house of Jacob to the ages; and of his reign there shall be no end.'” (Luke 1:30-33, YLT)

      When Mary went to Elizabeth’s house, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit at the sound of Mary’s voice, Elizabeth told her,

      “45 and happy [is] she who did believe, for there shall be a completion to the things spoken to her from the Lord.'” (Luke 1:45)

      So, the work that was completed in AD 70 was the establishment of His kingdom. It was broadcast by John, appointed and anointed by God for the work announcing the kingdom was at hand (Matt. 3:1-3). It was sanctified and established by Christ through His miracles affirming John’s work, and God’s word, through His death on the cross for the sins of all who will answer the call (Acts 2:38-39; 10:5-18, etc.), through the broadcast of the gospel of Christ throughout all the occupied lands of that day (Matt. 24: 14). Once the people had been informed of His last will and testament (the gospel), then the time of the “end” had come when that old sacrificial temple was taken out of the way.

      The work that was finished in AD 70 was the take over from the earthly sacrificial temple, to the heavenly temple built upon Christ’s sacrifice. That judgment upon Jerusalem in AD 70 was “a” day of the Lord. Too many get caught up in the first article of the English translations which imply just one day of the Lord. Young’s reads a little better.

      Phil. 1:6, ” having been confident of this very thing, that He who did begin in you a good work, will perform [it] till a day of Jesus Christ,”

      ….until A day of Jesus Christ. The scriptures never implied that God stopped judgment after AD 70. The very act of sitting upon His throne, with Christ on His throne beside the Father indicates the King is in court, and judgment is in process. He still judges the nations just as He always has. His judges those who are passing from this earthly realm every hour of every day. God and Christ are still in control, and their work of judgment never stops. He has a continual harvest (John 4:34-35) both here on earth in calling the people to Him through His word, and in the gathering of the souls covered by His blood into heaven at their passing.

      The marriage of the lamb was also finished during the fall feast days, as Matt. 22:1-14 makes clear that judgment began at the marriage feast, which began immediately after the “city” was burned. So, when Jerusalem was destroyed by the 1st of Tishri AD 70, the marriage feast began. By Jewish custom, the marriage feast lasted 10 days. That would put the last day of the marriage feast of the Lamb on the 10th of Tishri. It was during the marriage feast that the Father would send His son to collect His bride – the lamp stands of the virgins in Matt. 25.

      By the Feast of Nations on the 15th of Tishri – Feast of Tabernacles – also called the Feast of Ingathering and Season of our Joy – the kingdom was open to everyone who answered the call, to every one covered by the blood of Christ’s sacrifice for the remission of sins (Gal. 3:26-29). That last feast day of the fall harvest season was called THE feast by the Jews, the culmination of all of the feast days before it. And, every nation was welcomed to celebrate with them. That last feast day of AD 70 marks the beginning of the fullness of the Kingdom in which every one of every nation is now and has been welcome to tabernacle with God. Truth is they always were.

      So, AD 70 was the finishing of the work to establish our Lord’s spiritual kingdom, and the beginning of the rest of time of the rest of His harvesting work. It is a continual, on-going process.

      Rev. 14:13, “And I heard a voice out of the heaven saying to me, `Write: Happy are the dead who in the Lord are dying from this time!’ `Yes, (saith the Spirit,) That they may rest from their labours — and their works do follow them!'”

      As all those in Christ are now counted for the seed of Abraham (Gal. 3:29), then all those in Christ are now of the House of Jacob, and all those in Christ are the True Israel of God. We have been in tabernacle of the House of God, of His everlasting Kingdom, in the continual Feast of Nations ever since the 15th of Tishri, AD 70.

      1. I believe the scriptures are easy to understand once we remove our indoctrination blindfolds. We have been taught a lot of nonsense through both institutional education and church systems that the scriptures never said. The real job is to learn how to unlearn what we think we know. The one certain thing I have learned through all of my research is that anything that contradicts or speaks against any of God’s scriptures has to be tossed out in favor of what God said. Once I do that, then God’s word rules, and understanding it becomes much easier.

    1. No. God’s requirements for his contract / covenant are not defined by man’s institutional church membership agreements. His requirements are at once much simpler, and much more strict. His kingdom includes all who are covered by the blood of Christ and walk in His steps. We have to meet Him on His terms. Mark 16:16, Rom. 6:4, Acts 2:38; 19:1-5; Eph. 4:5; Col. 2:12; 1 Pet. 3:21. See also the posts here for “Do You Have to Be Baptized to Be Saved”, and “Crossing Over. ”

      Wherever any one is on this earth, which ever man made church assembly they attend for worship of our Creator, as long as they are in Christ through water immersion, and as long as they follow in His footsteps according to the NT, then they are meeting God on His terms, and the Holy Spirit records their name in the book of life (Phil. 4:3; Rev. 3:5; 16:18). God keeps those records, not men.

      2. I leave the judgment to God. He always has a remnant (Isa. 1:9). The RCC was practicing immersion up to about the 700’s AD. The Orthodox church still practices immersion for remission of sins, to be covered by the blood sacrifice of Christ through symbolic death, burial and resurrection. So, even though info was withheld from much of the world during those dark years of the RCC history, and still is today, those who want to know will seek him out (Matt. 6:33; 7:7; Heb. 11:6).
