Kings & Priests
This somehow presumes that intellect and knowledge are equivalent to good behavior and wisdom.
Would you say that young kids have less knowledge than adults?
Well, do children fight and bicker?
Of course they do.
Do adults, even those with college degrees, fight and bicker?
Yes, they do too. They call it marriage. (Just kidding.)
I guess superior knowledge doesn't necessarily overcome the spirit of bickering and fighting then, does it?
Nor does it automatically give one wisdom.
One need look no further than our Congress to find very knowledgeable, intelligent people who possess no wisdom.
First, let's go to Revelation where the apostle John is being shown a vision of the second advent, and see how Jesus Christ returns.
And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
In His first advent Jesus came riding into Jerusalem on a lowly ass as the Lamb to be slain.
He came that first time for the express purpose of paying the price for our sins and defeating death (Heb. 2:14), which He did.
 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
The word "knew" in Greek means to "intuitively know" as to the meaning of.
And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
That's right, and He's got some weaponry too!
 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
Jesus Christ is coming to SMITE the nations and TAKE OVER the entire RULERSHIP of this earth (collect all the crowns).
 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
You see, the false messiah, Satan, will also appear as "world ruler" and "high priest".
Satan comes to earth first
claiming he is God!
Here is your documentation:
And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
Horns are symbolic of power. What are the two powers of the Lamb of God? We just read it, KING and LORD.
Satan, the dragon, as the false-christ, will have those two powers (horns) as World Ruler (King) and High Priest (Lord).
 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
Let's take another look at the 7th Trump, the return of the King and our Lord.
And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.
 And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God,
 Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned.
And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
Again, He is coming to JUDGE and RULE!
And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged,
Those rulers aren't going to be too happy about turning in those crowns, are they? If you think Jesus was angry when He threw the money changers out of temple "You ain't seen nothin' yet!" Wait until you see Him throw these guys out of office and take away their crowns!
Rev. 11:18 (...continued) and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.
But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden.
He is talking about the false doctrine of the woman, even sleazy Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess (yeah right!), but feeds God's children idolatrous lies called "the traditions of men", like her modern day counterpart, Margaret MacDonald, with her Rapture Theory, etc.
 But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.
 And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:
 And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.
 And I will give him the morning star.
Jesus Christ is the Morning Star and we will soon see in Ezekiel exactly how this will be.
 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
And when He had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints.
All your prayers have been spiritually recorded on SCOD's (Spiritual Compact Odour Droplets) and are stored in golden vials which are kept by the 24 elders. (Hey, what can I say? Digital recording is really crude technology compared to God's recording systems.)
 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;
Salvation is open to all of God's children.
Now notice the next verse.
 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
You can be sure that the dictators in this 21st. century world including the Castro's are not going to be too happy when their crowns are ripped from their unrighteous heads and given to saints of the Most High, i.e. Christians. That's just too bad!
Here at the American Wisdom Series our goal is to make you think about and question the wisdom of the current:
Let's recap the first four seals.
|Seal||Horse||Symbolic of:||Hidden Dynasty|
I sincerely hope these 4 Seals, unveiled by the Lamb of God, revealing the hidden truth of what is happening on the four corners of the earth just prior to His return, has been a blessing to your eyes, shall we say a real "eye opener".
There are Three Seals yet to come. I can't wait!

Here's a quick review of the sin of Satan showing the Four Powers he abused in "the world that then was", the 1st Earth Age.
Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.
God did not create Satan corrupt. He became that way, but worse yet he indoctrinated many of God's children with his corrupt and profane WAYS.
 By the multitude of thy merchandise (Economics, 3rd Seal) they have filled the midst of thee with violence (corruption), and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God (Government/Rulership, 2nd Seal): and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.
 Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom (Education/Indoctrination, 4th Seal) by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.
 Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries (Religion, 1st Seal) by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.
Satan was judged and found to be guilty of extreme, unrepentant liberalism. Solomon declared that there is nothing new under the sun, i.e. in this present earth age. As you see the beast system in this final generation you are witnessing the same structure that Satan possessed in the "world that then was". The sentencing He received at his judgment was eternal death, which is to perish and "be no more".
 All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more.
Next, we did a study on "The Four Winds" showing how those same Four Hidden Dynasties, that same tail of the dragon, are in full swing this very day, but their full fury at the hands of Satan and his angels are being held back until the great sealing of Rev. 7 is completed by God's elect. The Four Dynasties are called "Hidden" because most people cannot see them for what they are, and if you cannot see them, then you do not have the first Four Seals of Rev. 6 in your forehead.
You see, there is a great deal more to deception than people just believing in the religious "traditions of men". There is a great deal more to deception than people just believing in the Rapture Theory. Those things pertain only to the 1st Seal. Yet Satan has deceived the people concerning the other 3 Seals, the other 3 hidden dynasties of Economics, Politics, and Education. For example, most people in this country are clueless about how money works and what the usurious debt system of Central Banking* is all about. It is a Satanic system of economic bondage that enslaves people through the use of blood-sucking usury and it is PROHIBITED by the Word of God!
*Note: If you do not understand Inflation and Deflation and the National Debt and how money works then find and read a copy of the booklet titled "The Hidden Dynasty of the Economy".
Editor's note: We could not find a copy of the original booklet, but we did find this > Live Link to- The Hidden Dynasty of the Economy
We then brought to light some of the scriptures concerning the last days that have been misunderstood until now. We showed how "nations rising against nations" in Mat. 24 & Mk. 13 means that nations would rise "along side" other nations "in the market place" and kingdoms would rise along side of other kingdoms in the market place. In other words there would be market globalization taking place, exactly as we SEE it with the Eurodollar and Dollarization and the e-commerce "new economy" of the Internet.
We then understood that "men's hearts failing them for fear" in Luke 21 meant that men's courage to speak out would be stifled for fear of reprisal (the sting of the scorpion) by the media or the courts or your employer or an organization like the Anti Defamation League or the ACLU. This is all evidenced in the Politically Correct thick atmosphere that exists today whereby you cannot "speak out" about certain things, including social pestilences like homosexuality, etc. without the beast system "stinging" you.
Then there are the signs in the heavens painting 6's and 666's all over the skies. Or see our "The Four Winds" study (above) if you aren't familiar with the signs in the heavens.)
The point to all of this is that the first Beast of Rev. 13 is Rising from the sea (the people) and if you have eyes to see and ears to hear it is VERY VISIBLE right now. It is HERE! And it is beginning to flex its muscles and the people are asleep! We will explain.
But first let's go back to the time of Moses when he brought the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt with the mighty hand of God. Why did he need to bring them out? Why did they need a deliverer? Did they need delivered from believing in the Rapture Theory? Did they need delivered from bad preachers? NO! They needed delivered from the Bondage of the POLITICAL and ECONOMIC and OPPRESSIVE ways of Pharaoh, a type of antichrist, a type of Satan himself! They needed to be FREE!

The children of Israel were SLAVES and CAPTIVES in Egypt just like the people are in CUBA TODAY! And they cried out to Almighty God for deliverance, for FREEDOM FROM OPPRESSION! Could they just up and leave Egypt? No they could not, else they would have done so. Those who tried would be pursued by Pharaoh and killed, even as those who try to leave Cuba are pursued and SHOT by Fidel Castro's thugs. People who tried to escape over the Berlin wall were likewise SHOT by the communist regime.
Is Freedom important? How important is it?
Did not Moses' mother place him in a basket and push him among the reeds to safety, to ESCAPE the Tyranny of Pharaoh? You tell me! Which was more important to her, to have her son stay with his biological parent, or to have life and freedom though he would be raised by another?
Several years ago, many of the people of this nation vilified the Cuban mother who gave her life to push her son to the land of freedom to escape the tyranny and oppression of Castro.
Do you remember Elian?
That happened in 1999. Elian would be a young adult now. If anyone reading this has any news as to what has happened to little Elian since he was returned to Cuba, I would sure appreciate a report. E-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org
Apparently we Americans no longer teach nor remember the words of Patrick Henry when he spoke before the convention in 1775:
"I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!"
Many young men of this great nation have shed their blood on foreign soil to keep this nation from the form of tyrannical government found in Cuba. It would be nice if they could have stayed home with their biological parents. But instead, they left and gave their lives for a greater cause, the cause of Freedom, to live without oppression, for oppression is a fate far worse than death itself. That is why so many are willing to risk their lives to escape it.
There is no greater cause than following Jesus Christ, which means following the Word of God, all of it, including the laws of freedom from the book whose verse is inscribed on our Liberty Bell. For you see, Jesus Christ is the Living Word of God. (The word "hate" in the following verse means to "love less by comparison". It is a matter of priorities.)
If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.
How would you like it if people who tried to leave America's borders were shot down like dogs? We are fast approching the high day of Christianity, the Lord's Passover. We were told long ago to tell the story from generation to generation of the oppression and the deliverance of our people from the land of Egypt. I wonder how many Christians even think about it much less do it?
So, for 40 years the children of Israel wandered in the wilderness, didn't they? What was it that Moses was doing during those 40 years? He was disciplining the children of God. Moses was made a RULER and a JUDGE! We can read of it in Acts where Stephen gave his life to tell this story of the oppression and deliverance so that we could read it here in these last days.
Then said the Lord to him, Put off thy shoes from thy feet: for the place where thou standest is holy ground.
The Lord is speaking here to Moses.
 I have seen, I have seen the affliction of my people which is in Egypt, and I have heard their groaning, and am come down to deliver them. And now come, I will send thee into Egypt.
 This Moses whom they refused, saying, Who made thee a ruler and a judge? the same did God send to be a ruler and a deliverer by the hand of the angel which appeared to him in the bush.
God appointed Moses to be a ruler and a redeemer. Moses did not just hold Sunday school classes and church services, but he JUDGED his people during the 40 years in the wilderness after he brought them out.
 He brought them out, after that he had shewed wonders and signs in the land of Egypt, and in the Red sea, and in the wilderness forty years.
Apparently 40 years wasn't long enough, was it? It didn't take them very long once they were settled in the promised land to begin to allow Satan's tail to start swinging again as they followed his liberal ideas concerning worship and economics and judgments and they soon committed such "whoredoms" that God brought about their captivity by the Assyrians and scattered them among the heathen. Think about it!
And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
Here comes the jailer with a great chain.
 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
He will be locked up for 1000 years with NO CHANCE for parole!
 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.
Satan will no longer be allowed to deceive anyone until the 1000 years is over. Then there will be a final exam for all the people. Satan will get another shot at promoting liberalism in the arenas of economics, religion, politics, and education. Those who then embrace the agendas of the CFR, the NEA, the FED, or the NCC (National Council of Churches) will be in big trouble at the judgment which will follow.
And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
God's elect shall sit upon THRONES and JUDGE and they shall reign with Christ a thousand years. They will be Kings and Priests!
 (But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished.) This is the first resurrection.
The "dead", meaning the spiritually dead, i.e. those who did not make the "cut" at the first resurrection, will have to wait a thousand years until the second resurrection, the great white throne judgment, to receive eternal life, which is what "to live again" means.
 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.
Again, God's elect will have the duties of the office of priesthood and ALSO those of ruling and judging! They will be the "ruling class" during the Millennium.
And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,
 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.
It seems hard to imagine that anyone having experienced both the pain and suffering of this flesh age and then the peace and harmony of the Millennium would willingly choose to accept liberalism again. Yet, apparently there will be quite a few. For that, they shall receive the same sentence as Satan at the great white throne judgment.
 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.
 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
"Tormented day and night" is a figure of speech meaning they will be gone for ever and ever. All that is evil will be consumed in that lake of fire and then the New City of Jerusalem will come down out of heaven and we shall enter eternity where evil can no longer exist.
In the meantime, we still have great oppression present on earth, and still greater deception among the people.
In fact, two thirds (interestingly enough) of our own people in this nation believe that the "right thing" has been done in taking the 6 year old Cuban boy, young Elian, by force and reuniting him with his biological father. Apparently to them, "A child should be with his parents whether living in oppression or not!" So if a parent is unjustly confined to prison and forced to labor on the rock piles 18 hours a day without hope for release from bondage, then his or her child should be with him or her and be subjected to the same life, if you call that life. I don't claim to know if Cuba is still such a prison and as we have read, many Cubans don't call that life. Elian's mother didn't and she gave her life to give FREEDOM to her son.
You see (or maybe you don't)
Elian was not delivered into the hands of his father! He was delivered into the
hands of Fidel Castro, for under communism children are the property of the
state? He was actually "betrayed" by his communist father who even
read a scripted statement when he de-boarded the plane, a statement written by
Fidel himself. Yes, the young child was delivered back into bondage and
oppression and has been delivered up to the system along with its
"shrinks" and doctors armed with needles full of "happy
juice" to be used if necessary to ensure his deprogramming from Freedom and
reprogramming back into the ways of oppression and communism. We even saw
pictures of his happy rooms (jail) where he will go when he returns to
But the priests the Levites, the sons of Zadok, that kept the charge of my sanctuary when the children of Israel went astray from me, they shall come near to me to minister unto me, and they shall stand before me to offer unto me the fat and the blood, saith the Lord GOD:
The Zadok kept His charge when the children went astray in the 1st Earth Age and have kept His charge in this Present Earth Age. Only they shall come near the Morning Star, Jesus Christ, and minister unto Him.
 They shall enter into my sanctuary, and they shall come near to my table, to minister unto me, and they shall keep my charge.
What will they be doing?
And they shall teach my people the difference between the holy and profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean.
The majority of our people today cannot discern between the Word of God and the traditions of men. Our people cannot discern between that which is "polluted" judgment and morality and that which is morally "pure".
unclean = t*ame', taw-may', Hebrew 2931; from Hebrew 2930 (t*ame'); foul in a religious sense :- defiled, + infamous, polluted (-tion), unclean.
clean = t*ahowr, taw-hore', Hebrew 2889; or t*ahor, taw-hore'; from Hebrew 2891 (t*aher); pure (in a physical, chemical, ceremonial or moral sense) :- clean, fair, pure (-ness).
So guess what you will be doing if you are part of the first resurrection? You will stand in judgment of "personal" and "legal" matters, just like Moses did in the wilderness. And you will judge those matters according to the Word of God, His judgments of right and wrong, and not on legal precedence which has produced a profane and twisted judicial system.
 And in controversy they shall stand in judgment; and they shall judge it according to my judgments: and they shall keep my laws and my statutes in all mine assemblies; and they shall hallow my sabbaths.
controvesy = riyb, reeb, Hebrew 7379; or rib, reeb; from Hebrew 7378 (riyb); a contest (personal or legal) :- + adversary, cause, chiding, contend (-tion), controversy, multitude [from the margin], pleading, strife, strive (-ing), suit.
God's elect will make sure that His laws and statutes are present in all His assemblies. God will be allowed back in schools and public buildings. And substitute high days, sabbaths, like Ishtar will no longer be permitted to be observed. Period!
 And they shall come at no dead person to defile themselves: but for father, or for mother, or for son, or for daughter, for brother, or for sister that hath had no husband, they may defile themselves.
If one of your loved ones who didn't make the 1st Resurrection (i.e. they are spiritually dead) begins to go astray and turn back to "liberal ways" then you will go out with the "sword" and prod them from behind until they get the point! Perhaps you will pull out some "flesh age" videos and teach them how that liberal idea leads to socialism and then to communism, as they view scenes of the oppression of Pharaoh's Egypt and Castro's Cuba.
We leave you with the words of Paul.
1 Tim. 6:11
But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.
 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.
Are you a fighter? Are you a Christian soldier?
 I give thee charge in the sight of God, who quickeneth all things, and before Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed a good confession;
 That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ:
Hold fast and keep His charge until He gets here, in His time!
 Which in His times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords;
"And (He) hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign (with Him) on the earth." (Rev. 5:10)
 Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.
There is no other "way" to life, to happiness and immortality. Only through Jesus Christ can there be eternal peace and happiness, and to Him belongs the honour and the power everlasting.
During the Millennium there will be no Communist China.
There will be no Communist Cuba.
There will be no starving India.
The USSR is already history.
And closer to home:
There will be no National Council of Churches.
There will be no Central Banking System.
There will be no profaning of the sanctuary of God.
God's elect, the Kings and Priests of the Most High God, will see to it!
