“What Is The Measure Of A Man?” “My Thought Are Higher Than Your Thoughts.” “My Ways Are Higher Than Your Ways.” “Dead Men’s Bones.” “Remember From Where You Have Fallen.” “Prepare To Meet Thy God.” Thus Says The Lord Jesus Christ, All Glory To God!!!


The Holy Scripture Teaches:

The Compassion of the Lord:

Isaiah 55:8-9 ESV, NKJV

8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts,

   neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord.

9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth,

   so are my ways higher than your ways

   and my thoughts than your thoughts.

10 “For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven

   and do not return there but water the earth,

making it bring forth and sprout,

   giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater,

11 so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth;

   it shall not return to me empty (Void),

but it shall accomplish that which I purpose,

   and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it”

Jesus Said:

Woe to the Scribes and Pharisees

Matthew 23:27 NKJV

27 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness”

The Holy Scripture Teaches:

The Loveless Church:

Revelation 2:1-7 ESV

1 “To the angel of the church of Ephesus write,

‘These things says He who holds the seven stars in His right hand, who walks in the midst of the seven golden lampstands: “I know your works, your labor, your patience, and that you cannot bear those who are evil. And you have tested those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars; and you have persevered and have patience, and have labored for My name’s sake and have not become weary. Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love.

Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place—unless you repent. But this you have, that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.

“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God.” ’”

The Holy Scripture Teaches:

The Dead Church:

Revelation 3:1-6 ESV

1“And to the angel of the church in Sardis write,

‘These things says He who has the seven Spirits of God and the seven stars: “I know your works, that you have a name that you are alive, but you are dead. Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die, for I have not found your works perfect before God.

Remember therefore how you have received and heard; hold fast and repent. Therefore if you will not watch, I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know what hour I will come upon you.

You have a few names even in Sardis who have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with Me in white, for they are worthy. He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.

“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” ’”

Know One Knows The Day Or Hour:

Jesus Said:

Matthew 24:44 ESV

44 “Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.
