Forbidding and/or preventing the Word of God to be given to a human soul is an act of murder. It is like cutting the tube on an oxygen machine and letting the patient suffocate. It is like refusing to give a person his nitroglycerin while he is having a heart attack. The Gideons should keep up their giving of the Word of Life despite the devil's decree. The Constitution guarantees religious liberty, and any judge who says giving the Bible away is unconstitutional is a demon driven monster. It is required by God that the decrees if these anti-Christ monsters be dis-obeyed. When you are forbidden to preach the Name of Jesus, the Biblical requirement is that you shout that Name louder than ever.
I have never seen anti-Christ in Daniel 9. Gabriel is telling Daniel about the Christ. Why would he confuse the message with a subject that hasn't even come up yet? The 70th Daniel Week belongs to God, and the "confirming of THE COVENANT" God's covenant of Salvation! All of the prophesies in the 70th Week are things that God does. When Messiah was cut off on the middle of the week, that was the confirmation of the Everlasting Covenant. This anti-Christ covenant with the Jews, that he alledgedly breaks, has always appeared to me to be a work of someone's imagination, having no foundation in Scripture at all.
1 Corinthians 14:39 Forbid not to speak with toungues Mark 16:17--these signs shall follow them that believe--they shall speak with new toungues 1 Corinthians 14:1 he that speaks in an unknown toungue speaks not unto men but unto God 1 Corinthians 14:14 If I pray in an unknown tougue, my spirit prays, but my understanding is unfruitful
1 Corinthians 14:18 I thank my God I speak with toungues more than ye all
Acts 2:38, 39 ----ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost --this promise is unto you and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
It is true that in the congregation there must be a certain Holy Spirit order. But most of the time when I have heard people emphasising this fact, it means they want an "order" which excludes any supernatural speaking, because "toungues" make them nervous, and they don't want to deal with the spiritual power that is being manifested.
In my church, a stranger came to kneel at our altar. The man next to him started praying in toungues.
Later it was discovered that he had called the stranger by name, named his wife and children, and given him the plan of salvation, in his native Norwiegian language. He had not understood a word of what he had said.
Forbidding the Word of God to a person is a criminal act before God. Imagine a man in bed, attached to an oxygen machine in order to breathe. A person takes that tube and squeezes it, so the oxygen can't get through, and the person dies. The person who squeezed the tube is a murderer. Deny the Word of God to a soul, and you murder the soul. If you can't get inside the school to give the Word away, stand outside the school and put it in the children's hands as they walk down the public sidewalk on the way home. The freedom of the Word has always been Constitutional. Those who claim it is not are enemies of the Constitution and the freedoms it protects.
These people are not to be obeyed. Their rulings against us should only inspire us to get around their rulings and get the Word out to the people even more. I really get sick and tired of Christians who keep going to the courts and pleading, please Mister Pagan Judge, permit us to give the Word to save souls. We are to obey God rather than men.
May a stranger butt into this discussion? I invite everybody to forget that John Calvin ever existed. Forget Mr. Arminius was ever born. Look at what the Bible alone says:
Deut. 30:19 I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing---therefore choose life---
Matthew 23:37 Oh, Jerusalem----how often I would have gathered thy children----but ye would not--
Acts 7:51 ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears----ye do always resist the Holy Ghost---
1 Peter 1:2 -elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father---
Not fore-choosing or fore-deciding to damn. But fore-knowing--knowing ahead of time that some will choose life, and others will---resist the Holy Ghost! The human Will can actually resist the pulling and calling of the Holy Ghost, and that resistance puts their damnation on their own heads. The sacrifice of Christ was perfect. It was complete. Not for our sins only, but for the sins of the whole world. 1 John 2:2 Even for those who resist the Holy Ghost and will not come.
