Dead Missionary Man-centered The Coming Synthesis Alice A. Bailiey and Dijwhal Khul, The Seventh Ray: Revealer of the New Age (NY: Lucius Press, 1995), 198-99. The coming of the Aquarian age also stimulates in man a spirit of universality and a tendency towards fusion. This can be seen

working out in the present trend towards synthesis in business, in religion and in politics. It produces an urge towards union, and among other unions, towards religious understanding and tolerance...False and true standards will emerge in mans consciousness, and those choices will be made which will lay the foundation of the new order, which will inaugurate the new race, with its new laws and novel approaches, and so usher in the new religion of love and brotherhood, and that period wherein the group and the group-good will be the dominant note. Then separateness and hatreds will fade out and men will be merged in

a true unity." Explanation of the missing Barbara Marx Hubbard, The Revelation: A Message of Hope for the New Millennium, 2nd ed. (Novato, CA: Nataraj, 1995), 65, 66, 195, 233, 240, 255. Your unfinished species is ready to evolve. The time has come on Earth for this quantum change to occur in many of you." Her "Christ" further informed her "I cannot 'return' until enough of you are attracted and linked." Hubbard's "Christ"

explained, "I did not intend for you to deify me, but to deify yourselves as being at the same stage of evolution as I am." "Suffice it to say, that if you do not choose to evolve into a wholesome, co-creative human, then you shall not."

foremost of the sons of Ammon. Arnold Fruchtenbaum Footseps of the Messiah, Page 296-97 Another suggestion is the city now known as Petrathis author prefers the identification with Petra. Petra is located in a basin within Mount Seir, and is totally surrounded by mountains and cliffs. The only way in and out of the city is through a narrow passageway that extends for about a mile

and can only be negotiated by foot or by horseback. This makes the city easy to defend, and its surrounding high cliffs give added meaning and confirmation to Isaiah 33:16. Only a few abreast can enter through this passage at any one time, giving this city even greater defensibility. Arnold Fruchtenbaum Footseps of the Messiah, Page 296-97 The name Bozrah means sheepfold. An ancient sheepfold

had a narrow entrance so that the shepherd could count his sheep. Once inside the fold, the sheep had more room to move around. Petra is shaped like a giant sheepfold, with its narrow passage opening up to a spacious circle surrounded by cliffs. This is not true of the town of Buseira. Furthermore, by modern Petra is a site known as Butzeira, which retains the Hebrew Botzrah...It will be a very defensible city located in Mount Seir...Furthermore, as they flee and while they are living there, food and water will be miraculously provided.

DESCRIPTION Loveless Persecuted Compromised Corrupt Dead Missionary Man-centered Matthew 13:9

He who has ears, let him hear. Matthew 24:13 But the one who endures to the end, he will be saved. John Murray Redemption Accomplished and Applied, pp. 152, 154-55. The crucial test of true faith is endurance to the end, abiding

in Christ, and continuance in the WordHe cannot abandon himself to sin; he cannot come under the domination of sin; he cannot be guilty of certain kinds of unfaithfulnessLet us appreciate the doctrine of the perseverance of the saints and recognize that we may entertain the faith of our security in Christ only as we persevere in faith and holiness to the end. A. W. Pink Practical Christianity, p. 16.

Readers, if there is a reserve in your obedience, you are on your way to hell. John Piper John Piper and Pastoral Staff, TULIP: What We Believe about the Five Points of Calvinism: Position Paper of the Pastoral Staff (Desiring God Ministries, 1997), 25, cited in Dave Hunt, What Love is This?, 379. No Christian can be sure that he is a true believer. Hence, there is an

ongoing need to be dedicated to the Lord and to deny ourselves so that we might make it. John MacArthur Saved Without A Doubt, p. 177 If a person fails to love and obey the Lord through the trials of life, then there is no evidence that he possesses saving faith. How many people do you

know who came to church for a while, had a little trouble in their lives, and left? Although they may have made a profession of faith in Christ, they cannot be identified as those who love Him because their lives are not characterized by enduring obedience. R.C. Sproul Bob Wilkin as quoted in: http://www.gracebiblestudies.org/Resources/Web/www.duluthbible.org/g_f_j/EternalSecurity12.htm During the first message presented at Ligoniers Conference in

Orlando last June, Dr. R. C. Sproul indicated that Dr. James Boice, a scheduled speaker at the conference, was dying in faith that very night. Then at the end of the message he asked all 5,000 of us present to pray that Jim dies in faith. This struck me as sad. Here was a great pastor, theologian, teacher, and author. Yet Sproul was not sure that he was regenerate. (In Reformed thought, if a person fails to die in faith, he proved he was never saved in the first place.) I was reminded of R.T. Kendalls remark that nearly to a man the Puritan divines died doubting whether they were saved and fearing they were going to hell. Dr. Boice died that very night,

June 15th. Cardinal John OConnor of NY quoted in Samuel Howe Verhovek, Cardinal Defends a Jailed Bishop Who Warned Cuomo on Abortion, New York Times, February 1, 1990. Church teaching is that I don't know, at any given moment, what my eternal future will be I can hope, pray, do my very best but I still don't know. Pope

John II doesn't absolutely know that he will go to heaven, nor does mother Theresa of Calcutta, unless either has had a special divine revelation. John 5:24 Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life.

1 John 5:13 These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life. Psalm 50:5 (NKJV) Gather My saints together

to Me, Those who have made a covenant with Me by sacrifice. Psalm 149:1 (NKJV) Praise the Lord! Sing to the Lord a new song, And His praise in the assembly of saints. Revelation 1:19
