We left off last week talking about Thomas Jefferson’s letter to the Danbury Baptist Church. That letter has become so distorted and mis-used since the FDR Supreme Court ruled that “Freedom of Religion” and “Separation of Church and State” meant that no state-run agency of facility could promote the name of Jesus Christ under the guise that it infringed on the rights of other religions. What a farce! What a fraud! Let’s dig down deeper into this discussion today as we pick up where we left off last week. Understand that, as we do so, we are now discussing issues that became part of the foundational understanding that eventually formed our Constitution.
Guess I need to finish my story regarding my congressional campaign in 2003-2004. My story is really nothing but a microcosm of what has taken place nationally in our abandonment of responsibility for the nation, and accepting the instruction that Paul gave to Timothy when he wrote, I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. (I Timothy 2:1-4)
Last week's sharing spent a bit more time than planned on William Penn. Meant to hold down the length a little more, but I really wanted to finish up in one day with William Penn and his establishing of the Pennsylvania Colony. Still, the history and details of Penn's faith, and the lengths to which he went to incorporate a firm understanding of God's governance in our society are nothing less than amazing!
As we get into today’s sharing, let me ask you this question. Are you beginning to see just how much the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ was incorporated into the foundations of the United States of America? Are you seeing the covenant commitment that our founding fathers had with the Lord, and why they were so driven to establish a nation in which Jesus Christ was Lord?
Let’s see if we can wrap this up today. I know that some of what I’ve shared may have stepped on some folks’ religious understanding and/or doctrines, but this revelation is critical for this particular time. Jesus is coming for an overcoming Bride – and folks, we have a lot of overcoming in front of us. Never have we had such a nation divided! Never have we had such full-blown demonic activity on display. Never have we in America seen such efforts of the Enemy to destroy every vestige of our relationship with Jesus Christ. It is time for us to overcome all of this and to take our places of responsibility in this hour!
We ran a bit long last week, and we may run a bit long again this week, but I want to share as much of this revelation with you as I can in the shortest amount of time. We wrapped up last week by saying that Jesus does make requirements for healing, for health, for life, for receiving from Him. The first and most basic is, faith.
Before we launch into another lengthy series, let me take the next two or three weeks to deal with an issue that faces the body of Christ right now. My approach may be a bit different on this topic, and if I offend certain Christians with some of my comments, please bear with me and hear me out.
Today, we wrap up this series. For the past three months-plus, we’ve been talking about the various realms of praise and worship and how they intersected with the Tabernacle of David. Let me give you a couple of statistics from the Psalms. Did you ever stop to realize that the Psalms are the exact center of the Word? All of Creation revolves around the Worship, the Praise, the Prayers and Intercession in the Psalms. THAT was the essence of the Tabernacle of David. Let’s take it one step farther. Psalm 117 is the exact center of the Word. There are 594 chapters before Psalm 117 and 594 chapters after Psalm 117. And how does Psalm 117 read?
We have lots of territory to cover again today, so without any fanfare……. Remember that the Serpent did not come to Adam and Eve as an ugly, abhorrent, slimy creature. He came as a beautiful being. Ezekiel describes him this way,
I’ve shared with you on previous occasions the fact that the Sound of the Lord comes – and is represented throughout the Word – as measurable frequencies with specific objectives. The two most dominant frequencies in the Word are 444 (which is the frequency of the key of A) and 528 (which is middle C on the piano). We see 444 in Scripture especially in the Creation narrative where the phrase occurs, “And God said…” The mathematical value of that phrase with its accompanying statement is generally referred to as 888 – which denotes the fact that Jesus was the One speaking the words of creation.
