“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.”
King James Version (KJV)

Hi Stephen, I didn't find your response till Jan8. When were you given the "choice"? Was it while you were dead or alive? I believe the dead have no choice and the living see no other. He saved me, he died for me, it was true at that instant I first saw, now and forever.
Irresistable grace is the work of quickening unbelivers to life, to recognize the truth/Jesus. Salvation is more than a rational decision of the human will. You can't say to God, "I chose you, therefore, you are obligated to save me." That's not by grace, and makes a substantial difference in the believers perspective on their salvation and behavior. Grace is never conditional, or would you suggest it is?
The confidence in what we believers have, is entirely a personal conviction. That is, while I might believe you do have it, only you know, and I will have to wait to see you in the hereafter.
I don't know how to converse with you more directly, but I wouldn't mind hearing from you on this again.

Hi Bill, you raised an interesting question the way you put it, I would like to comment, I think we are born dead in trespasses and sin, We have been given the law which is to show us we come up short of Gods requirement for salvation, Now the wages of sin is death, Jesus died on the cross and paid for the sins of the world for all who believe. We who believe was put in Christ and baptised in his death, and when he rose from the dead we were raised with him in newness of life, "Romans 6:3-4. That's why the scripture says we must be born again, "born from above" now we have been sent a savior, "Jesus Christ" now we are given a "choice" if we accept his redemptive blood or not, now i don't know if you call that free will or choice.

Only this week I discovered responses in my little used email account.
mishael, you answered my post, but not my question. That's evasion, but is it intentional? Free of what? Free of what? Free of what?
"People are given freewill." Really? Free of what? Anyone claiming we have a free will is saying we are free of sin and not dead in trespasses and sin, before being saved, so who needs Christ?

My people reffer to the house of Israel. calling them to wake up from the deep sleep they are into. Babylon has deceaved the whole world. I've already started to teach my people the true Gospel, not the one we've learned from the churches. Because these churches they all drunk with Her meaning Babylon the great, by preaching her doctrines.

Falling away indeed , but still more to come . Society in general , wants no law and order , but are not wise enough to know the results of it .
Also God raises up spoilers for a reason as well . It's time to really be serious about God and his word . And thank God for his unchanging word too !
Are hope is when Christ comes again , the darkness that precedes it means it's coming closer . But many things need to come to
Pass yet and have not .
We are not appointed unto wrath . Jesus Christ is our Ark in the flood of trouble .

i believe the come out of her my people, is a call to the in general catholics who are still in the Catholic Church as more and more the Catholic Church is corrupted. The latest from the Pope is a call to recognize civil unions for Gay couples. Think of jewish teaching on homosexality and look at the current catholic teaching. One could do this on Many topics. This pope also has turned to the policy that WORKS is needed for salvation. Basically the Catholic church has now turned into a giant charitable organization. Salvation is a gift from a merciful GOD. Good luck to Catholics who adopt these heretical teachings. I do not think we have to wait long now to know exactly what GOD thinks about the last 50 years. The great falling away could only be missed by someone truly blind. That is no one paticular person but a huge part of the baby boomers on have had basically no religion,didn't say i was any better just pointing out the realities of today.

Also.... There is no mother "Harlot Church ". This is a fabrication. Yours. Any church in which believers gather together to celebrate Gods Love for humanity, and which elevates the name of Jesus above ALL, cannot be a Harlot. They feed the poor world over, care for orphans and widows, and preach the Gospel of salvation. This is nothing but scriptural. The MEN in the church who pervert that will be judged by God Almighty. Not you.

And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues
Revelation 18:4 is talking to the true church of Christ,the
Methodists, Presbyterians, Baptists, Lutherans, Episcopal, Nazarenes,Cleveland" Church of God groups: Church of God of Prophecy, Church of God, Zion Assembly Church of God, Jerusalem Acres-Church of God of the Nations, and The Church of God,Wesley Pentecostal,Huss, Luther, Wesley, Zwingli, Calvin,Mormonism, Jehovah Witnesses, Adventists, Scientology, and various Catholic or and other church claiming Jesus as the Christ.
Understand the these church buildings and their membership is not the true church of God, but only them who believe Jesus is The Christ, then washed their sins in the blood of the Lamb of God, then acknowledged receiving the Holy Sprit of God, and do not blasphemy the Holy Ghost (to think to sin) is blasphemy to the Holy Ghost and should the so much as think to sin they hold back not to make amends to the Holy Ghost welcoming The Holy Ghost to return.
Him with understanding understand: all who teach rapture doctrine and all who believe Rapture doctrine will not come out of her and will partake of her sins.
It stands to reason why would anyone leave when God himself is going to take you away from the terrible day? So he who loves husband or wife sister of brother or the things of this world more than Jesus is not worthy of the rewards of Jesus. Remember Lots wife and how she looked back.

Some may say when they loose their career due to layoffs and corporate budget cuts, that God has killed their career, life and family and say "what did I do wrong Lord, to deserve this?" When in fact, if very well could be that God is protecting you and is drawing you out from among them that will suffer the God's judgment when the Angle is commanded to pour out the seventh (I think it's the 7th) Vile of God's Wrth. I think this is a clear sigh for believers that God is on the job more than you think.

Dearly Beloved: Come out of her my people is very urgent! Simply because God's people cannot be entangled with Romanism. All efforts made by Huss, Luther, Wesley, Zwingly, Calvin have only produced portions of the "Faith that was once delivered unto the Saints".
The Church of God groups based in Cleveland TN have done much to bring us to the revelation of the True Church of Jesus Christ based on the rediscovery of the Apostolic foundation. When we hear about Ecumentical unity we must be careful not to let down our guard. Many of the formal reform groups such as Methodists, Presbyterians, Baptists, Lutherans, Episcopals, Nazarenes, and not to mention the cult groups: Mormanism, Jehovah Witnesses, Adventists, Scientology, and every other "ism", still have traces of Roman error within them and have not fully surrenderd to the Wesley Pentecostal Holiness Standard that teaches us Grace is not cheap and a license to sin anytime you want to!
Jesus prayed for a sanctified, truthful unity in John 17. He is going to have a Glorius Church without Spot or wrinkle, not one that is guilty of the Blood of the saints and martyrs of Jesus.
We have come to a point "Cleveland" Church of God groups: Church of God of Prophecy, Church of God, Zion Assembly Church of God, Jerusalem Acres-Church of God of the Nations, and The Church of God "concerned" group: We must come together as "one" in Christ and offset what the Mother Harlot Church (headquartered in the Vatican) is doing. What did we "reform" ourselves from? Jesus Christ is "The Way, The Truth, and The Life!
SPIRIT AND TRUTH IS WHAT CHRIST IS CALLING US TODAY TO DO! COME OUT OF HER MY PEOPLE! HE THAT HAS AN EAR, LET HIM HEAR WHAT THE SPIRIT IS SAYING UNTO THE CHURCHES! COME OUT OF HER. CHURCH OF GOD GROUPS: 'STOP FIGHTING AMONG OURSELVES AND BE THAT EXCLUSIVE COVENANT PEOPLE GOD HAS CALLED US TO BE.
"For the mystery of Iniquity doth already work: only He (The Holy Spirit) who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming"; 2nd Thessalonians 2:7-8).
Judgment does first begin at the house of God and so will pure devine Unity of believers into one body!!!
With Love and great HOpe
