Pamphlet 1301 Ezek kc 82-1

Is everyone who claims to be a Christian going to be able to enter the kingdom
and sit at the feet of Jesus during the Millennium?

How about those shepherds and preachers who lead their people in praise and worship
and give sermons claiming that God says "this" in the Bible and He says "that" in the Bible,
when He doesn't say it at all?

How about those preachers who cast out demons and sickness
right there on stage in the name of Jesus as they knock people down?

Jesus didn't knock people down when He healed them,
He always lifted them up.

How about those who hold chicken barbeques to raise money
to send missionaries abroad or who "fund raise" to feed the hungry children
in third world nations or even this nation?

Certainly those are good and noble works, but are they worthy of salvation?

And how about those who elevate themselves on podiums which become pedestals
and those who sit high in stature in the sanctuaries of major Christian denominations,
arrayed in their "oh so religious" attire,
who perpetuate the traditions and rituals and idolatrous doctrines of the church,
but never quite get around to teaching His Word?

 What about those preachers?

What will they be doing in the Millennium?

In this study we shall see what probation the Lord has in store for them for 1000 years.

First, let's hear Jesus Christ answer the opening question for us,
"Is everyone who claims to be a Christian going to be able to enter the kingdom
and sit at the feet of Jesus during the Millennium?"

Matthew 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
You see, a person either believes Jesus Christ and what He says, or he doesn't,
and therefore would rather do the "church thing", which "thing" is religion, not Christianity.

There are MANY (see next vs.) today who call themselves Christians
who do all the things they believe they are supposed to,
because they are told from men who claim to be Christ's representatives
that this is what God wants them to do in order to be in good standing.

There is just one problem with that.

Because they have forsaken His Word (by not studying and absorbing it)
and have substituted Churchianity, i.e. men's traditions, in place of Christianity,
they will fall at the feet of the first supernatural entity who comes in power,
arrayed in glory, riding on a "white horse" (symbolic of Christianity)
claiming to be the Messiah and who deceives the whole world into believing he is God.

This is the great apostasy, which means "falling away",
spoken of by Paul in 2 Thes. 2.

It is called "great" because it will be the MAJORITY of the House of Israel who will FALL,
i.e. the Christian nations of the world.

So what will happen when these Christians
and their Christian ministers who will have worshipped antichrist,
now go before the King of kings and Lord of lords when He returns at the 7th Trump
and try to "cash in" all their wonderful good deeds and works?

[22] Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
These false teachers are the MAJORITY of the Christian ministers of today
who are CAUSING the fall of the House of Israel by not building an hedge around the people
that they may be able to stand in that day of the deception.

The hedge is BUILT by teaching the Word of God line by line
chapter by chapter, and verse by verse, even one "spiritual cubit" at a time.

Remember we covered this in depth in Ezekiel 13:4-6, O Israel, thy prophets are like the foxes in the deserts.
[5] Ye have not gone up into the gaps, neither made up the hedge for the house of Israel to stand in the battle in the day of the LORD. [6] They have seen vanity and lying divination, saying, The LORD saith: and the LORD hath not sent them: and they have made others to hope that they would confirm the word.

They give false hope and teach a false sense of security
by promising that people will be "raptured" away into the clouds when the antichrist appears,
when there is NO such rapture.

Christ returns at the 7th Trump AFTER the reign of antichrist who comes at the 6th Trump.

And so it has already come to pass
that MANY are sorely deceived this very day by those they trust as Christian ministers.

It IS a sign of these last days:

Mark 13:6 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
It is the great famine for the hearing of the Word of God in these last days
spoken of by Amos in chapter 8, vs. 11, of his book.

So what will Christ say to these deceived preachers who will have led the multitudes to worship Satan,
the abomination of desolation, i.e. the desolator spoken of by Daniel the prophet?

Matthew 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
He never knew them because they never knew Him,
i.e. they never came to Him through the written Word to know Him.

We are now going to see what will befall those ministers
who even now are causing the House of Israel to stumble and fall.

Ezekiel has just SEEN the measurements of The Altar,
i.e. understood its purpose and function during the Millennium,
and he will now be taken to the East Gate which looks across the Kidron Valley
to the Mount of Olives in the direction of the return of the Glory of God,
even Jesus Christ the King and Lord over all.

The CLOSED OUTER EAST GATE and the reason. (Ezekiel 44:1-3)

To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
