The Call of God in His Seven Thunders - Part 1, which is meant to precede this article.
And as Samuel was offering up the burnt offering, the Philistines drew near to battle against Israel: but the LORD thundered with a great thunder on that day upon the Philistines, and discomfited them; and they were smitten before Israel. – 1 Samuel 7:10
In contrast to God’s perfect number seven, the number six is the number of man. In this verse, God was about to deal with the enemies (Philistines) of God’s people. They looked upon Samuel (priest), just as they did with Moses (prophet), to be a mediator for them. The enemies of God (world system) were about to attack. The similarity of this event foreshadows the Great Battle that is to come in the book of Revelation in the Last Days.
Samuel responded on behalf of the Israelites by sacrificing a lamb unto the Lord. The result was the "Lamb" destroying the enemies of God's people. Again, this foreshadows Jesus Christ who will destroy the world system in totality on His second coming. God’s thunderous voice is a thunder for His people, and a response to His enemies. His thunder confused the enemy, and the result was God’s people defeating them.
Jesus Christ said that by the Lamb being slain, the enemy would be cast down and defeated.
The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it thundered: others said, An angel spake to him. Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of me, but for your sakes. Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me. This he said, signifying what death he should die. – John 12:29-33
Jesus Christ was referring to the full realization of a coming event, which would be for the sake of all His people.
The sixth thunder of Revelation is about the judgement for the Last Days.
And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great. – Revelation 16:18-21
This is the signal of the final judgement on the system of the world. The men of the world will respond by blaspheming God, which is a total disregard and rejection of the genuine Gospel of salvation. It is a rejection of reconciliation and redemption. The men of the earth (soil, vegetation) believe that their works will be their salvation. Similarly, the modern "church" continues to run on a worldly system, even though many times it has been confronted and exposed. It is an outright disregard for the genuine Jesus Christ as they continue to promote their own ideologies, theories, revelations, politics, titles, piety, success, riches, etc.., without repentance.
This will be their demise,
Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her. – Revelation 18:8
There will be an utter demise of the godless apostate "church." The lies, deception and flirtation with seducing spirits will no longer have their influence and proximity to the true believers of Jesus Christ. The "church" of Babylon will finally receive her reward, which is total defeat and judgement. There will be no more opinions, feelings of man, perversions of the Gospel, or the oppression of the hierarchical church system that hinders the masses from meeting God face to face. The biggest enemy of God’s people will finally be destroyed.
If ye will fear the LORD, and serve him, and obey his voice, and not rebel against the commandment of the LORD, then shall both ye and also the king that reigneth over you continue following the LORD your God: But if ye will not obey the voice of the LORD, but rebel against the commandment of the LORD, then shall the hand of the LORD be against you, as it was against your fathers. Now therefore stand and see this great thing, which the LORD will do before your eyes. Is it not wheat harvest to day? I will call unto the LORD, and he shall send thunder and rain; that ye may perceive and see that your wickednessis great, which ye have done in the sight of the LORD, in asking you a king. So Samuel called unto the LORD; and the LORD sent thunder and rain that day: and all the people greatly feared the LORD and Samuel. – 1 Samuel 12:14
Throughout the Old Testament there were three kinds of people that ruled over the people of God. There was Moses (prophet), Samuel (priest), and Saul (king). God answered each one of them with His thunderous voice and called His people (Israel) to reconcile, and be restored to Him. The prophet mediated between them, the priest stood in the gap, and the king was before God.
The alienation from God has continued through history from those under the Law to the age of Grace today. The Catholic and the Protestant churches, and the so called present day “prophetic” movement still manifest the same alienation. There is only one exception (Early Ekklesia) who were the example of no dividing line of God’s people (laity) with their leaders (clergy). The Early Ekklesia represented the true foundation of the Gospel that did not heed the traditions of man.
The seventh thunder of God is about perfection, and the accomplishment of God’s plan from the first thunder to the last. What started as alienation from God will end in total reconciliation to Him. Isn't this a beautiful picture? It is about the glorious gathering of all of God’s people to Himself. There is no more setting up of pastors, prophets, priests, etc... attempting to hear and meet God for you.
You can hear God’s thunderous voice for yourself, and meet Him at the "mountain." Say no to having a personal pastor, or prophet as a “seer” for you. God is going to deal with those who promote these behaviors that stand between Him and His people. It is time to take heed of His voice for yourself, and put away the things (other men) that are hindering you from hearing His voice.
The true ministry of God is about our RESPONSE to Him, it is not about the ministers "response" for you. This is not about the destruction of genuine ministry, but the "vegetative" garments that the ministers are wanting you to wear. These "garments" are what separates us from God, which are about the works of man, and their system. True ministry is about having a FACE-TO-FACE relationship with God.
For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus - 1 Timothy 2:5
Are you willing to respond?
True ministers that hear the thunderous voice of God will simply step aside and go up the "mountain" with God's people. The modern ministers of the worldly "church" system will not step aside because they have elevated themselves above others in hierarchical system.
It is important to understand and identify the “leaven” of the minister who promotes a system that alienates people from Jesus Christ.
Are you willing to say no more to man being the mediator between you and God?
Jesus Christ is the one who is to rule over His people, not the "king" in the "church" building. The time of the prophet, priest, and king are over. All of God’s people can fulfill these things by having a face-to-face relationship with Him.
We are in the last days and there is a great need for contenders who will not compromise to the system of man. It is prophesied that those who stand in between God’s people will be removed because they are in opposition to God's thunderous voice.
Take a step back from the man-made modern "church" system, hear God’s voice for yourself, and understand the wickedness in having human mediators.
And all the people said unto Samuel, Pray for thy servants unto the LORD thy God, that we die not: for we have added unto all our sins this evil, to ask us a king. – 1 Samuel 12:19
And Samuel said unto the people, Fear not: ye have done all this wickedness: yet turn not aside from following the LORD, but serve the LORD with all your heart; And turn ye not aside: for then should ye go after vain things, which cannot profit nor deliver; for they are vain. For the LORD will not forsake his people for his great name's sake: because it hath pleased the LORD to make you his people. – 1 Samuel 12:20-22
It pleases God, and it is a pleasure for Him to redeem you from the cursed ground. God is waiting for you, don’t look to your favorite church evangelist, or minister; they are not your kings. They cannot go up the mountain for you; He is waiting for you to boldly come to His throne of grace.
The seventh thunder of God in Revelation is the sound of completion, it is His plan of redemption for His people. They are a people that are without spot, stain, or wrinkle.
And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God. – Revelation 19:6-9
This is the final thunder of God’s voice, which is about finality, perfection, and completeness. It is an invitation to a marriage supper. It is about a commitment to Him, leaving your past behind, putting on His garment of grace, and becoming reserved for Him.
The good fruit of Jesus Christ that manifests are those who will stand in judgement against those who refuse God's gift of salvation. We must continue to fight the fight so that that others do not become disqualified by standing aloof by accepting the counterfeit teachings in the modern "church" that do not resemble the true Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Just like King Solomon, the modern "church" has built the house, but then uses it to serve other gods. King Hezekiah was healed by God and then rebelled against Him. God wants you to take a more excellent way and be like a “Moses” who wants to brings others to the top of the mountain with him.
God’s plan for His people are not complicated, but is a simple truth. It is about the marriage supper feast of the Lamb and the gathering of His Bride unto Himself. The Bible is filled with the picture of His plan. It starts in Genesis and ends in Revelation.
The time is near when God's true people (ekklesia) will receive glorified bodies, flesh of His flesh, and in the likeness of Him for all eternity. We will be married to Him, and He will take pleasure in His people.
The temple of God is not one that is made with man’s hands, nor by might (human), nor by power (man), but by the Holy Spirit.
God’s people will come down out of heaven as a holy city as a Bride dressed for her Husband.
He will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. – Revelation 21:3
I hope you will heed God’s thunderous voice. He is calling you to come, no longer stand aloof, but making your way up the "mountain" to meet Him face-to-face.
And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is a thirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. – Revelation 22:17
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.– Revelation 22:21
I hope you that you may understand the purpose of God’s thunderous voice (spiritual) that is calling out to you. God desires for you to come and reconcile with Him (Gospel). The garments of man (world system) will not save you; it is only when you put on His garment of grace (Jesus Christ) that will change and transform you into His likeness. He desires for you to tell others about His gift (salvation), and to show others the path up the "mountain" (reconciliation) to meet Him. Our sinful nature has alienated us from Him, but He is still calling out to you and wanting you to draw near to Him. God's thunderous voice is the culmination of His purpose and plan. My hope is that you choose to respond and reconcile to Him.
- Do You Go to "Church," or Are You the Church?
The modern "church" expects the lost to come to them, and the truth dispensed to them in the “church.” Where in the New Testament does it say to erect a building and invite the lost to come into it?
- Tithing Has Been Abolished: Say No to Temple Tax!
Tithing is an Old Testament practice that no longer applies to the church today. It is an old and obsolete practice. It is time to break free from the oppressive system that is being promoted in the modern church.
- Youth Ministry is Segregation
The modern church of today is structured with the youth ministry. It consists of fun and games peppered with a Bible verse here and there. Under closer inspection, the youth ministry has always been a hindrance to the gospel and is harming the family
- The Pastoral Office of the Modern Church is not Bibl...
The office of the head pastor is about a fundamental figure within the institutionalized church who is met with praise and accolades by dispelling God's Word to the masses, but has it been corrupted?
