The Seven Last Plagues are poured in parallel to each of the Seven
Churches. Their effect is to rid people of sin, especially racial and
religious hatreds. We must realize that self-exaltation results in
oppression and death, and only God's government of brotherhood,
achieved by observing His Spiritual Law of the Ten Commandments
with perfect Love for Him, can allow us to live harmoniously for eternity.

I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels,
Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the
earth. And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth;
and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had
the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image." (Revelation

noisome and grievous sore:
The good news:
Messiah has come. He is Jesus. However, it is His Word that is
the great political and military leader you have been expecting for
so long! But He has succeeded in conquering the world
for God through His Word.
The bad news:
Are you really prepared to accept billions of proselytes (converts),
and also convert yourselves to God's True Religion by worshipping
Him in true Righteousness?
A famous statement
by Rabbi Helbo that appears in the Talmud:
reason have you for desiring to become a proselyte . . ." and
he is made acquainted with some of the minor, and with some of the
major commandments. What is the reason? In order that if
he desire to withdraw let him do so;10 for R.
Helbo said: Proselytes are as hard for Israel [to endure] as a sore,11
because it is written in Scripture. And the proselyte12 shall join
himself with them, and they shall cleave13 to the house of Jacob.14" (Talmud
- Mas. Yevamoth 47b)
The plague of sores
Judaism will have to endure is the acceptance of billions of converts.

I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord,
which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus. For
they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given
them blood to drink; for they are worthy. And I heard another out
of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and
righteous are thy judgments."
(Revelation 16:5-7 KJV)
they are worthy: The previous three belief systems of
Judaism, Islam, and people of the Eastern religions have indeed
shed the blood of the prophets and many Christian saints - as
well as that of their own saints.
This is the
example of His Love that all
must accept. God loves all of the peoples He has created and
guided. These, too, are worthy to drink from the cup of His Salvation.

Many are actively attempting to get laws on the books that enforce
religious views or morals. Others are working selfishly to remove all
access to the knowledge of God from schools and government
departments in an attempt to protect their own members.
By doing so
they've removed much access to God from the poor, yet haven't taken
up the commission of Christ to spread the Gospel to the poor in this
country. They have stopped supporting the poor themselves, and most
recently have approved of the government also removing support of the
poor and underprivileged.
Many are the sort
of "Christians" and others who rationalize paying massive
interest so they can buy material goods on credit, who pay huge
insurance premiums on everything they own, then who complain that the
poor are "stealing" their tax money. These are those who
have bought in to the lies of Lucifer, who gives power to the Beast.
These are those who support the War on Terror, ignoring the truth
that the war is actually on Islam.

Studying the Word
of God leads the earnest student to resolve all of the references to
the "East" in the Bible somehow. Biblical
information on what the East means in all of these
references run dry. We must seek why it is that the Bible refers
to the East constantly on our own through Jesus' guidance.
the way of the kings of the east might be prepared: The
kings of the East are the Holy
Quran and the Lotus
Sutra of the Wonderful Law. When these are actually read, it
becomes obvious that both are inspired scriptures that are a central
part of the Plan of Salvation. Between the two of them, they
have prepared 2/3 of Spiritual earth to accept Jesus Christ
when He appears.
It is with these
scriptures that God has snared Lucifer and those who, like him, exalt
themselves over others because of race, religion, indifference, or
fear of the unknown. People in the Church of Philadelphia, from which
the 144,000 are drawn, cannot become God's elect until they have repented
of their bigotries and racial arrogance.
I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth
of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the
mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils,
working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of
the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of
God Almighty." (Revelation
they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth
unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to
the battle of that great day of God Almighty: The devilish
spirits going forth out the mouth of these three are the spirits of self-exaltation,
racism, and religious intolerance that permeate much
of Christian doctrine today.
worshipping the Beast and the False Prophet have based their doctrine
on their apostate version of Christianity being the only
religion God is interested in. None ever bothered studying the
Bible to resolve references to the East or other lands, because they
could not fathom 'their' God loving the rest of the people of earth
enough that He would be interested in saving them also.
of ignorance, which teaches bigotry and religious intolerance to
Christians world-wide, is the supreme evil spirit of the
world's history. It has been the doctrine of every
"Christian" slave-holder and oppressor. Begun in
Christianity with the setting up of the Abomination
of Desolation, it has been responsible for nearly every
massacre, act of genocide, and war fought, since Jesus ascended to heaven.
For those who have
been infected by it, the Battle to overcome this doctrine will be every
Christian's Spiritual Armageddon.
I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth
his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. And he
gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon." (Revelation
I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his
garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame: Once
you have accepted the inspired nature of most religions today, don't
let anyone talk you out of it - hang on to your faith in Jesus. Belief
in His brotherhood of creation is not a popular belief. Many
people, not only Christians, prefer to see their religion or
denomination as the only special one that believes the truth and that
will be saved.
Hold on to your
Robe of His Righteousness and proclaim His Love for all peoples.
gathered them together into a place called... Armageddon:
The Greek spelling of Armageddon comes from the Hebrew words 'har
megiddon'. 'Har' means 'mountain',
'megiddon' means 'place of crowds'.
Many people feel
the "Battle of Armageddon" will be a huge battle between
human armies, the outcome of which will be the return of Jesus. But
God does not set men against one another, so we can be sure
Jesus would not gather men together for that purpose.
above, Armageddon is a Spiritual Battle that will take place
within each one of us as we finally submit our will to the Love of
God. We will then 'battle' spiritually with others as we witness the
Truth about Jesus, his love of all peoples and religions, and His
Plan of Salvation. We must acknowledge before all people the Love He
has for His creations around the world - it is not just a Love for
one race or religion.

'mountain place of crowds', or a 'crowded mountain'. What will happen
I live, saith the Lord GOD, surely with a mighty hand, and with a
stretched out arm, and with fury poured out, will I rule over you: And
I will bring you out from the people, and will gather you out
of the countries wherein ye are scattered, with a mighty hand,
and with a stretched out arm, and with fury poured out. And I will
bring you into the wilderness of the people, and there will I
plead with you face to face. Like as I pleaded with your fathers
in the wilderness of the land of Egypt, so will I plead with you,
saith the Lord GOD. And I will cause you to pass under the rod, and
I will bring you into the bond of the covenant" (Ezekiel
This prophecy in
Ezekiel is exactly what will take place with each of us at our
personal Battle of Armageddon. It is our test of Love to
acknowledge His authority over the earth and the people whom He has created.
Ezekiel Chapter Twenty continues:
for you, O house of Israel, thus saith the Lord GOD; Go ye, serve
ye every one his idols, and hereafter also, if ye will not hearken
unto me: but pollute ye my holy name no more with your gifts, and
with your idols. For in mine holy mountain, in the mountain of
the height of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, there shall all the house
of Israel, all of them in the land, serve me: there will I accept
them, and there will I require your offerings, and the firstfruits of
your oblations, with all your holy things. I will accept you with
your sweet savour, when I bring you out from the people, and gather
you out of the countries wherein ye have been scattered; and I
will be sanctified in you before the heathen." (Ezekiel

Place of Crowds" or "Crowded Mountain"?
Where does Jesus gather us to this Battle?
Where is the only
place today that we can learn of Him without other men's opinions
influencing His Truth? Where can we freely discuss and witness Him to
others today, anonymously if we wish, in order to avoid the pressures

tools and countless on-line Bibles, concordances, and dictionaries.
