Defining The Ages (Times), Part 3
by M. I saacs
A lthough the world and especially
the A m erican people are resisting
the know ledge and w isdom o f G od,
yet He says, “ incline your ear, and
com e unto me, hear, and your soul
shall live; and I will m ake an ev er­
lasting covenant with you, even the
sure m ercies o f D avid.” Isaiah 55:1-
3. “Let the w icked forsake his way,
an d th e u n r ig h te o u s m an h is
thoughts; and let him return unto the
Lord, and He will have mercy on
him, and to our God, for he will
abundantly p ard o n .” Isaiah 55:7
“For I will not contend (with men)
forever, n either will I be alw ays
w roth; for the spirit shall fail before
me, and the souls which I have m ade” .
Isaiah 57:16.
C ease your lying and sinning
against the Lord. C ease speaking
oppression and revolt. Jesus is the
intercessor betw een Jehovah G od
and sinful man; only he is salvation
and his righteousness sustains us. If
the follow ers o f the evil one would
repent of their w icked ways and learn
to fear the Lord and learn to love as
Jesus loves all m en, then they will
partake o f his redem ptive pow er; for
love w orketh no ill to his neighbor,
therefore love is the fulfilling law
(R om ans 13:10) "Y e cannot drink
the cup of the L ord, and the cup o f
the devil, ye cannot be partakers of
the L o rd ’s T able and o f the table o f
the dev ils” . ( I C or. 10:21). You c a n ­
not have tw o m asters, for you will
hate the one and love the other. T his
is a FREE choice, w hich no m an can
deny T hese w ords are spoken to
wise men, for there are those unw ise
men, w ho will continue to choose
the doctrine o f dem ons, and those
will feel the ju d g in g p o w e ro f G od in
the Day O f T he Lord; and their fruits
will be corrupt and there will be no
com fort for their troubled hearts and
no hiding places when Jesus com es.
They will not drink o f the O ne Spirit
nor will they know the peace o f G od
They will w orship angels and spirits
o f the dead, intruding into those
things w hich they have not seen,
vainly puffed up by their fleshly
T hese are the tim es, already upon
us; o f w hich it is w ritten in
the W ord o f G od. “ For w hich
