Matt. 24: 3, “.. and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of ”𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗲𝗻𝗱 𝗼𝗳 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝘄𝗼𝗿𝗹𝗱❞
“…and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙬𝙤𝙧𝙠𝙨 𝙩𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙖𝙧𝙚 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚𝙞𝙣 𝙨𝙝𝙖𝙡𝙡 𝙗𝙚 𝙗𝙪𝙧𝙣𝙚𝙙 𝙪𝙥,”2Pet. 3:10.
Heb. 12: 29, “For our God is a consuming fire.” Previously we have explained what it is that is being burnt up especially as it relates to the above verse of scripture in Heb. 12. 𝙄𝙩 𝙞𝙨 𝙩𝙝𝙚 ❞𝙜𝙚𝙩𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙧𝙞𝙙 𝙤𝙛 𝙖𝙡𝙡 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙝𝙞𝙨𝙩𝙤𝙧𝙞𝙘𝙖𝙡 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙧𝙚𝙡𝙞𝙜𝙞𝙤𝙪𝙨 𝙟𝙪𝙣𝙠 𝙨𝙤 𝙩𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙪𝙣𝙨𝙝𝙖𝙠𝙖𝙗𝙡𝙚 𝙚𝙨𝙨𝙚𝙣𝙩𝙞𝙖𝙡𝙨 𝙨𝙩𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙘𝙡𝙚𝙖𝙧 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙪𝙣𝙘𝙡𝙪𝙩𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙚𝙙❞ as well as “the works of the flesh” as seen in Gal. 5.19-21.
But how is this being done?
“Through the words – light – truth which he sends forth, for “Every wrong doer hates (loathes, detests) THE LIGHT and will not come out into the LIGHT but shrinks from it, lest his WORKS – his DEEDS, his ACTIVITIES, his CONDUCT – be EXPOSED and REPROVED,” John 3:20, AMP.
The word “reproved” is the same as “discovered” in the margin of the King James Translation. So, are we surprised then that, “our God is truly a consuming fire” who sits to purify us as sons (Heb. 12:29; Mal. 3:1-3)?
The fact of the matter is,;𝙂𝙤𝙙 𝙝𝙖𝙨 𝙙𝙚𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙢𝙞𝙣𝙚𝙙 𝙞𝙣 𝘾𝙝𝙧𝙞𝙨𝙩, 𝙩𝙤 𝙚𝙭𝙥𝙤𝙨𝙚 𝙚𝙫𝙚𝙧𝙮 𝙢𝙖𝙣’𝙨 𝙬𝙤𝙧𝙠 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙝𝙖𝙫𝙚 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙢 𝙙𝙚𝙖𝙡𝙩 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝 𝙞𝙣 𝙟𝙪𝙙𝙜𝙢𝙚𝙣𝙩 𝙚𝙫𝙚𝙣 𝙖𝙨 𝙬𝙚 𝙘𝙖𝙣 𝙨𝙚𝙚 𝙞𝙣 1𝘾𝙤𝙧. 3:11-15;
“For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. If any man’s work abides which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: .”𝗯𝘂𝘁 𝗵𝗲 𝗵𝗶𝗺𝘀𝗲𝗹𝗳 𝘀𝗵𝗮𝗹𝗹 𝗯𝗲 𝘀𝗮𝘃𝗲𝗱; 𝘆𝗲𝘁 𝘀𝗼 𝗮𝘀 𝗯𝘆 𝗳𝗶𝗿𝗲.❞
Therefore, there cannot be any deception, unbelief or religious spirit, or hiding place from the truth that burns off these wicked works, even as Paul in the spirit declares;
“Some men’s sins are open before hand, going before to judgement (which must begin in the house of God – the church – as the word expose the sins of His people as the true word is being preached) and some men THEY FOLLOW AFTER. Likewise also, the good works (life of Christ) of some are manifest beforehand AND THEY THAT ARE OTHERWISE CANNOT BE HID,” 1Tim. 5:24-25.
Meaning that, there is no one that shall not be exposed to the searchlight of God’s word in His people, “true sons,” even as it searches the “inward parts of the belly” (heart); because HE desires truth there. (Prov. 20:27; Ps. 51:6).
Do not forget that these WORKS that God has to deal with, are both Adamic and religious in nature, hence we are told that we cannot lay other foundation – beliefs, doctrines, and concepts except that of Christ for “every man’s work shall be made manifest (shown for what it is) for the DAY shall declare it, because it shall be revealed (exposed) by FIRE” (1Cor. 3:11-15).
Are we surprised, therefore, that all religious craftiness is being exposed daily, even among those so-called “men of God?” The fire is at work; judgment is going on.
The demons of religion in men are being forced to cry out, no matter who they are; and you will truly “know them by their fruits” as they manifest (Matt. 7:20). For, “Every tree (people) that bringeth not forth good fruit (the life of Christ, John 3:21) is hewn down, and cast into the fire,” Matt. 7:19.
Great religious men in the Days of John the Baptist and Jesus lose their significance because of the light – truth, that came out of them, even so shall it continue until the demons of religion will have no hiding place in men.
Don’t forget that “the day of the Lord” shall so come as a thief in the NIGHT.” Why? Because it is an unexpected sweep of God upon those who are “drunken” and are “asleep” in the NIGHT of religious ease (1Thes. 5:7).
So, “Watch (be sober) therefore, for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come, But know this, that if the good man of the house had known in what watch the thief would come (Christ coming in judgment to take away your man-made comfort), he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up (burned up). Therefore be ye also ready; for in such an hour as ye think not the son of man cometh,“ Matt. 24:42-44.
𝗖𝗼𝗺𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗮𝘀 𝗮 𝘁𝗵𝗶𝗲𝗳 𝘄𝗮𝘀 𝗛𝗶𝘀 𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗶𝗻 𝗷𝘂𝗱𝗴𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝘁𝗼 𝗝𝗲𝗿𝘂𝘀𝗮𝗹𝗲𝗺 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗻 as we said before. So His coming here is not what we have always believed to be a second coming, and it has nothing to do with the destruction of the earth.
