NIMROD the MIGHTY HUNTER ~ ~ ~

NIMROD the Mighty Hunter

[PREFACE ]

Let the Reader be reminded of the works of GOD in the book know through out the world as the WORD of GOD [Romans 15:4]. That this “WORD” in its common adaptation is The BIBLE, and in order to bring you messages of comfort and assurance to BUILD you UP and not Tear Down, to bring HOPE in a time of hopelessness, and to renew your confidence in a creation in its final stage of “STRUM and DRANG” that is, storm and stress.

Thus being committed and educated to such a situation, we would in the following passages quoted, bring you this brief summary, in illustration of its sublime message, from the author of the book ” ELPIS ISRAEL  ” written by a remarkable gentleman of Richmond Virginia, Dr. John Thomas [1834-1868], a physician of both the spirit and body of human suffering, and that for the purpose of enlightenment and courage you might continue your life with dignity and joy at the nearness of its consummation. The Kingdom of GOD ~YAHWEH~ Elohim of Israel and Jesus Christ our soon coming King. [Isaiah 2, Numbers 14:21, Daniel 2:44,]

The Master, and our Lord, Jesus Christ has given us such assurance in the following:

” BE of GOOD CHEER ! for I have OVERCOME THE WORLD!”

The Constitution of Sin.

“The creature was made subject to evil, not willingly, but by reason of him who subjected it in hope.”

The introduction of sin into the world necessitated the constitution of things as they were laid in the beginning. If there had been no sin there would have been no “enmity” between GOD and man; and consequently no antagonism by which to educe good out of evil. Sin and evil are as cause and effect. GOD is the author of evil, but not of sin; for the evil is the punishment of sin. “I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I, the Lord, do all these things.” “Shall there be evil in a city, and the Lord hath not done it?” The evil then to which man is subjected is the Lord’s doing. War, famine, pestilence, flood, earthquake, disease, and death, are the terrible evils which God inflicts upon mankind for their transgressions. Nations cannot go to war when they please, any more than they can shake the earth at their will and pleasure; neither can they preserve peace, when He proclaims war. Evil is the artillery with which He combats the enemies of His law, and of His saints; consequently, there will be neither peace nor blessedness for the nations, until sin is put down, His people avenged, and truth and righteousness be established in the earth.

This is the constituted order of things. It is the constitution of the world; and as the world is sin’s dominion, or the kingdom of the adversary, it is the constitution of the kingdom of sin.

The Constitution of MEN — THE KINGDOM of GOD

The former things being admitted, if men would be esteemed righteous by GOD, they must become such by constitution also. The “good actions” of a pious sinner are mere “dead works”; for the actions of a sinner to be of any worth in relation to the future state, he must be “constituted righteous”; and this can only be by his coming under a constitution made and provided for the purpose. A stranger and foreigner from the commonwealth of the States, can only become a fellow-citizen with Americans, by taking the oath of abjuration, fulfilling the time of his probation, and taking the oath of allegiance according to the provisions of the constitution.

Now, The Kingdom of GOD has a constitution as well as the Kingdom of Satan, or that province of it styled the United States. Before sinners come under it, they are characterized as “without Jesus Christ, being aliens from the Commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without GOD (a[qeoi, atheists) in the world”. They are termed “far off”, “strangers and foreigners” “walking in the vanity of their mind, having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of GOD through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart”. But, mark the sacred style descriptive of sinners after they have been placed under the constitution of Israel’s Commonwealth, which is the Kingdom of GOD. “You that were far off are made nigh by the blood of Jesus Christ”; “through him you have access by one spirit to the Father; and are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow-citizens with the Saints, and of the household of GOD”—”fellow-heirs, and of the same body, and partakers of promises of GOD in Christ Jesus by the gospel“. In this remarkable contrast is discoverable a great change in state and character predicated of the same persons. How was this transformation effected? This question is answered by the phrase, “In Jesus Christ by the Gospel”. The “in” expresses the state; the “by” the instrumentality by which the state and character are changed.

The Man of Sin.

“The Man of Sin, the Son of Perdition.”

The Dragon, the Old Serpent, surnamed the Devil and Satan, being representative of Sin in its imperial constitution, as manifested in the past, present, and future, upon “the Habitable“, or Roman territory; the Man of Sin is that dynasty, “whose coming was after the energy of the Adversary with all power, and tokens, and prodigies of falsehood, and with all the deceit of iniquity in them that perish”. This is what he was in his coming, or presence. The power is styled, “the Man of Sin” not because it is to be found in only one man, but because it is sin preeminently incarnate in an order of men. This order occupying one throne, was to “be revealed” out of an apostasy from the original apostolic faith; but before its presence could be manifested, a certain obstacle was to “be taken out of the way”. No order of men such as the apostle describes, could make its appearance upon the territory of the Roman Dragon, so long as the constitution of the empire continued pagan. This, then, was the obstacle to be removed. While it continued, the elements of the new power were at work in the Christian body; but incapable of the exercise of political authority. These elements are collectively styled “the Mystery of Iniquity”, the open manifestation of which was withheld for a time.

When the “Red” or pagan aspect of the Dragon was changed for the “Catholic“, by the victories of Constantine, the opposing power was removed; in fact, the Adversary, or Satan, now a professor of Christianity, took “the Mystery of Iniquity” under his patronage; and as he found paganism no longer fit for the contest against the apostolic faith, he determined to change his weapon, and to fight it with the apostasy in the name of Christ. Hence, the first thing he did was to impose this apostasy on the world as its religion. He married it to the state, and established it by law. The National Establishment, as it now became, assumed the character of “Mother Church”; and the community in Old Rome, with its bishop now converted into the chief magistrate of the city at its head, claimed to be the mistress of all churches. The apostasy being united to Satan, became the open enemy of God, and the worse than pagan persecutor of His truth. Its name is Catholic; and since the division of the Dragon territory into east and west, and the great schism about image-worship, it is surnamed Greek Catholic, and Roman Catholic. The undivided catholic apostasy in its first establishment is represented in the Apocalypse by “a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars”. This woman, after nine months of years, or “a set time”, and not long before she was clothed with the imperial robes, was “pained to be delivered” of her child, which had been conceived in her by sin. As the betrothed of the Second Adam, the Serpent had beguiled her, and had corrupted her mind from the simplicity that is in Christ. Part of her body had embraced another Jesus, another Spirit, and another gospel; by which they were so corrupted that they were prepared to take the sword; declare for the first military chieftain, whose anti-pagan ambition of supreme power should induce him to embrace their cause; and to turn Christianity into a State Religion. This party found a semi-pagan suited to their purpose in Constantine, surnamed “the Great”. When he avowed himself their champion, all the power of the Old Serpent was brought to bear against him and his confederates. They fought; and victory perched upon the standard of the Cross, now become “the mark” of the Apostasy.

The current state of affairs in the year of our Lord 2008, has directed our attention to the figure of NIMROD and that way in which the CHEMELION or CHANGER, Body Shifter, Saboteur, and the “REBEL” appear and are then gone and then reappear, However: from the beginning of Eden [Genesis 3:15]

And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

There has been a CONTINUOUS controversy, from the Expulsion of Adam and his wife Eve, in a line of the REBELIOUS, and DISOBEDIENT: Of Cain, NIMROD, Nebuchadnessar, Ceasar, Constantine, the Papacy, and in the Line OBEDIENT, and RIGHTEOUS: of ABEL, Shem, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, David and Jesus Christ. And this will continue until the return of Jesus Christ from Heaven to bring it all to a conclusion in the Judgement of this world and the setting up of the KINGDOM of GOD. Here in then our excitement to bring to your attention such wonderful news of the Gospel message and its outcome.

CONCLUSION

In Summary then, we are found in the World but not, “of the World”, that by STORM and STRESS, and the Chastening of this our GOD and Father, and that by HIS benevolent Spirit and the Ehohistic power, find in ourselves a change for good knowing this that our Father in Heaven would not that any should perish, but have life EVERLASTING. So dear reader it is my desire also for you that you might receive this message and rejoice as I and many of our fellow believers in the Faith Once taught by the Apostles.

But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.

14 For if we believe that Jesus Christ died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus Christ will GOD bring with him.

15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. {prevent: or, come before, or, anticipate, or, precede}

16 For the Lord Himself shall descend from Heaven with a ~shout~ , with the voice of the Archangel, and with The Trump of GOD: and the dead in Jesus Christ shall rise first:

[I Thessalonians 4:13-16]
