What Is Prophecy?

Updated: Feb 11

Daniel 10

Authorized (King James) Version

{Paraphrased}


10 In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia a thing {prophecy} was revealed {to} Daniel, whose name was called Belteshazzar, and the thing {prophecy} was true {had its origins in the Bible}. But the time appointed {for it to happen} was long {into the future} and he understood the thing {prophecy} and had understanding of the vision.

{Point 1 in genuine prophecy:


V. 1. Whatever God tells you, you will understand it. This is because God and His angels have been teaching you up to the time appointed by God to use you for prophecy}.


Daniel's first visit from the Archangel Gabriel

Archangels look like God

This was not God but the Archangel Gabriel

{Rev. 1:10-20; 10:1}


In those days I, Daniel, was mourning {fasting} three full weeks. 3 I ate no pleasant bread neither came flesh nor wine in my mouth. Neither did I anoint myself {bathe with fragrant oils and water} at all {until} three whole weeks were fulfilled.


{Point 2 in genuine prophecy:


Vv. 2 & 3. This is how God and His angels want people when they receive God's word from them. You got to be ready to jump out of the shower naked and wet and run to your place of study to write down what the angels tell you for God. To make God's word more important than your life, is called by the angels "to walk with God and the angels", or fellowship.}


{On} the {twenty fourth day} of the first month as I was by the side of the great river, which is Hiddekel. Then I lifted up {my} eyes and looked, and behold a certain man clothed in linen whose loins were girded with fine gold of Uphaz. His body also was like the beryl {gem} and His face as the appearance of lightning. {His} eyes {were} as lamps of fire and His arms and His feet like in color to polished brass. {The} voice of His words {were} like the voice of a multitude {speaking at once in unison}.

And I Daniel alone saw the vision {because} the men that were with me saw not the vision. But {instead} a great {earthquake} fell upon them so that they fled to hide themselves. Therefore I was left alone and saw this great vision and there remained no {physical} strength in me {because} my {smiling face} was turned in me into {the painful look of a sick man} and I retained no {physical} strength.

9 Yet heard I the voice of His words and when I heard the voice of His words, then was I in a deep sleep on my face and my face toward the ground.


{Point 3 in genuine prophecy:


Vv. 6, 9; vv. 11-21. God anoints the prophet to hear Him and the angels speak. Everyone else speaks to God in prayer, but cannot hear God or His messengers the angels speak back God's answer, or, God's word, to those prayers because they are not anointed by God with the gift of prophecy (1 Cor. 12:7-11). The gift of prophecy is therefore the ability to hear spirits talking so that you can write what they say for God for others to know.}


{Point 4 in genuine prophecy:


Vv. 8, 9; vv. 15-17. People fall to the ground in God's Presence under God's power when He anoints them for prophecy or for whatever gifts that He chooses to install in them (1 Cor. 12:7-11). This is what happens today when people get saved & anointed by the Holy Spirit, or, the Presence of God. They fall down, fall asleep and can't breathe for a while. Today this is known as "Slain in the Spirit - Jn. 18:6/ Acts 9:3-5; 22:7/ Rev. 1:17.}


10 And, behold, {a} hand touched me which set me upon my knees and upon the palms of my hands. 11 And he {the archangel Gabriel not his hand} said {to} me,

"O Daniel, a man greatly beloved {by God}, understand the words that I speak {to you} and stand upright, {because to you} am I now sent {by God}".

And when he had spoken this word {prophecy to} me I stood trembling. 12 Then said he {to} me,

"Fear not, Daniel {because} from the first day that {you did} set {your} heart to understand and to chasten {yourself - fasting} before {your} God, {your} words were heard {by God and the angels} and I am come {sent by God} for {your} words {Angels do the words of God - Ps. 103:20}. 13 But the {angel} prince - the demon spirit and territorial ruler of the powers of darkness over - Eph. 6:12} the kingdom of Persia withstood me {twenty one} days. But, {know that archangel} Michael, one of the {highest angelic} princes {principalities of Light over all angels including the

principalities and powers of darkness}, came to help me and I remained there with the {human} kings of Persia. 14 Now I am come to {answer your prayer for God and} make {you} understand what shall befall {your} people {Israel} in the latter {years}, {because} yet the vision is for many {years into the future}".

15 And when {Gabriel} had spoken such words {to} me, I set my face toward the ground and I became dumb. 16 And, behold, one like the similitude of the sons of men touched my lip {Again, God's angels look like Him - Rev. 10:1}. Then I opened my mouth and {spoke}, and said {to Gabriel} that stood before me,

"O my lord, by the vision my sorrows are turned upon me, and I have retained no {physical} strength {Again, Daniel fell to the ground under the anointing}. 17 For how can the servant of this my lord talk with this my lord? {Because} as for me, straightway there remained no strength in me, neither is there breath left in me".

18 Then there came again and touched me one like the appearance of a man {the angels resemble God}, and he strengthened me 19 and said,

"O man greatly beloved {by God and the angels}, fear not. Peace be {to you}. Be strong, {yes}, be strong".

And when he had spoken {to} me, I was {physically} strengthened and said,

"Let my lord speak {because you have} strengthened me". 20 Then said he,

"{Do you know why} I {have} come {to you}? And now will I return to fight with the {demon angel} prince {principality and power of darkness - Eph. 6:12} of Persia, and when I am gone forth, {know that} the {demon angel} prince {principality and power of darkness - Eph. 6:12} of {Greece} shall come {to fight me with the demon angelic principality and power of darkness of Persia}. 21 But I will {show you} that which is noted in the scripture of truth {the Bible}, and there is none that holds {stays steadfast} with me in these things {prophecy}, but {the archangel} Michael your prince {principality and power of Light over your people Israel.}"


{Point 5 in genuine prophecy:


V. 21. God sends His angels to explain the Bible to us and to tell us what to write about it so that it is easy for others to understand. Thus, God wants the prophet to write books for Him as Daniel did.}


Introduction


The Bible is from Another World

Its Words Come from Ghosts

Which are the Holy Spirit and His Angels

{2 Tim. 3:15-17}


I have received by prophecy from the Lord Jesus and His archangels of Light three years ago (2020), insights & revelation about the power of prophecy. I will share it here today with you to make you understand what genuine prophecy is. Specifically, God and His angels want me to explain to you a thing {a prophecy} about two scriptures: Mt. 24:36 and 1 Pt. 1:12.


Prelude


Genuine prophecy is the same thing today as what happened to the prophet Daniel when he wrote the book of Daniel. He was being visited by God and His archangels, getting anointed, or, falling to the ground under God's anointing, studying the Bible and writing down what the angels told him for God to make easy to understand Bible prophecy, or, the words of God given through the archangels. Thus, a prophet's job is to make you understand the Bible for God with the archangels. To rewrite scripture with the archangels for you (2 Tim. 2:15).

Thus, genuine prophecy is the anointing of God to hear His Spirit and His angels talking to you. The reason they talk to us is noted in Dan. 10:21; 12:9. Which is, to make the Bible easier to understand for others who read it. The genuine prophet hears the angels speaking for God the words of God about scripture and writes down what they say to write about scripture.


My Pastors' Statement About my Gift of Prophecy and the Bible


"People only know the Bible. They have to know the Lord. The Bible was written by ghosts telling people what to write the same way that Darrin writes. To understand the Bible you have to know the Lord".

(1 Cor. 2:6-16)


It's the truth. The Bible was written the same way that I write my messages here. I write what the ghosts tell me to write. The Bible is not from this world and neither are my messages.

(2 Pt. 1:20,21)


Chapter One


Examples of Genuine Prophecy


Matthew 24:36

Authorized (King James) Version

{Paraphrased}


36 {And Jesus says} "But of that day and hour {of My return} knows no man.

No, not the angels of heaven. But My Father only".


1 Peter 1:10-12

Living Bible


10 This salvation was something the prophets did not fully understand. Though they wrote about it, they had many questions as to what it all could mean. 11 They wondered what the Spirit of Christ within them was talking about, for he told them to write down the events which, since then, have happened to Christ: his suffering, and his great glory afterwards. And they wondered when and to whom all this would happen.

12 They were finally told that these things would not occur during their lifetime, but long years later, during yours. And now at last this Good News has been plainly announced to all of us. It was preached to us in the power of the same heaven-sent Holy Spirit who spoke to them; and it is all so strange and wonderful that even the angels in heaven would give a great deal to know more about it.


These two scripture passages are two examples of scriptures that have changed today because time has passed. Today, the angels understand salvation and witness with the church to the lost and to God's enemies. Today, the Lord Jesus knows the day & hour of His return because time has passed.

I am using these two scripture passages as examples of genuine prophecy because in Mt. 24:36, the Lord Jesus Himself, not God the Holy Spirit, nor God the Father, but God the Son - the God Jesus (as the angels of Light call Him) Himself told me three years ago (in 2020) that He now knows the day and the hour of His return because time has passed, and that God the Father told Him the day and the hour of His return when He ascended to heaven after His resurrection (Mk. 16:19/ Lk. 24:50, 51/ Acts 1:1-3).

Mt. 24:36 was spoken by the Lord Jesus when He was on earth. The passage changed when He went back to heaven because God the Father told His Son the day and the hour that He will return to earth. This is what the Lord Jesus told me in 2020. Amen.

The Lord Jesus by prophecy went on to explain to me that day that He won't tell people the day or the hour of His return so that they don't know the day or the the hour. Jesus said that when people know the day and hour of something that they don't get ready because they think that they got time to pass to get ready. "Ah! We got time". they say to God...

To not know the day or the hour of Jesus' return keeps people in a state of readiness. If you don't know when, you stay ready. If you do know the day and the hour, you will not prepare. You will become passive & procrastinate; indifferent, and will prepare just minutes before He returns. But Jesus says that we need to prepare before His return. Not on the day and hour of His return. You can't wait until the last minute because that's too late (Heb. 12:12-17).

And about 1 Pt. 1:10-12, it says that the angels desired to understand & know more about salvation and God's grace to sinful man back when salvation first appeared to man in the Old Testament. Like the elder brother of the prodigal son in Lk. 15, the angels listen to God the Father and help punish the younger humans who don't listen. Who instead squander God's wealth, or, the anointing.

This means that angels are older than man and are all about listening to God the Father. They don't understand why someone who doesn't listen to God should be forgiven instead of punished.

Today, the archangels witness to the world for the Lord with the church and have me write down their messages. See my message below titled "The Return of Christ" for an example of the archangel Gabriel now witnessing with the church to the world about the Gospel of repentance and New Birth, before the return of Christ. As I said in The Return of Christ, brother Gabriel's witness is an example of how we should to God haters and atheists about their unbelief.



Chapter 2


The Anointing


2 Corinthians 1:21-22

Authorized (King James) Version

{Paraphrased}


The Godhead

Father, Son and Holy Spirit


21 Now He which {establishes} us with you in Christ {God the Son - the God Jesus}, and {has} anointed us, is God {the Father - Father God}. 22 Who {has} also sealed {anointed} us {by giving us the faithfulness} of {God the Holy} Spirit in our hearts.


1 John 2:18-29

Authorized (King James) Version

{Paraphrased}


The Devil Can't Lie to You Because you are Anointed with the Holy Spirit


18 Little children, it is the last time {the time of the regeneration before the return of Jesus- Rev. 19-22}: and as {you} have heard that antichrist shall come, even now {there are} many antichrists {in the world today}. {By this} we know that it is the last time.

19 {These antichrist's} went out from us {they used to be in church with us}. But they were not of us {they were never born again because} if they had been {one} of us, they would no doubt have {stayed} with us. But they went out that they might be made manifest that they were not {one} of us. 20 But {you} have an unction from the Holy One, and {you} know all things. 21 I have not written {to} you because {you} know not the truth. But because {you} know it and that no lie is of the truth.

22 Who is a liar but he that {denies} that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist that {denies} the Father and the Son. 23 {Whoever denies} the Son, the same {has} not the Father. [But] he that {acknowledges} the Son {has} the Father also.

24 Let that {truth} therefore abide in you which {you} have heard from the beginning. If that which {you} have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, {you} also shall continue in the Son and in the Father. 25 And this is the promise that He {the Son of God has} promised us: eternal life {Jn. 3}.

26 These things have I written {to} you concerning {those antichrist's} that seduce you. 27 But the anointing which {you} have received of {Christ abides} in you and {you} need not that any man teach you. But as the same anointing {teaches} you of all things and is truth and is no lie, and even as it {has already} taught you, {you} shall abide in {Christ the Son}.

28 And now, little children, abide in {the Son so} that when He shall appear {in the regeneration}, we may have confidence {that we will please Him}, and not be ashamed before Him at His coming. 29 If {you} know that {Jesus} is righteous, {you} know that every one that {does} righteousness is born of Him.


1 Corinthians 12:7-11

Authorized (King James) Version

{Paraphrased}


But the manifestation of {God} the {Holy} Spirit is given to every man to profit {everyone else including himself}. {Because} to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom. To another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit. To another faith by the same Spirit. To another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit. 10 To another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another divers kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues.

11 But all these {gifts work inside} that one and same God the Holy Spirit, {and He decides what gifts to divide} to every man {whichever and however many gifts} as He {wants to give}.


Slain in the Spirit


Falling under God's power as Daniel did happens in first encounters when people first get saved and/or whenever they get closer to God. This means that today reborn Christians don't fall under God's anointing when visited by angels for His word like Daniel experienced in Dan 10 because the Holy Spirit has come down to earth and brought heaven with Him (Acts 1 &2). This means that when angels visit anointed Christians today, they come from within the Christian. God puts angels inside you today with Him, not around you, because the kingdom of God is inside the Holy Spirit (Rom. 14:17). This means that heaven is a state of being inside the Holy Spirit (Lk. 17:20, 21). Once you enter the Spirit of the Lord through spiritual baptism or spiritual regeneration and renewal (Ti. 3:4-7) which the Lord Jesus called getting born again or born from above (Jn. 3), you enter the kingdom of God which is heaven on earth.

This is what Jesus means in Jn. 14:3 when He said, "...that where I am, there {you} may be also". This means that Jesus was in heaven inside the Holy Spirit when He said this because heaven is a state of being inside the Holy Spirit. Heaven is righteousness, peace and joy within the Holy Spirit. This state of of inner righteousness, peace and joy is called the kingdom of God. All saints and angels live in the kingdom of God inside the Holy Spirit with you.

The anointed Christian lives in the Presence of God and the angels all the time from within because everyone is in heaven that lives inside the Holy Spirit. This means that we anointed Christians are living with all the other Christians who died before us and that we are all also living with the angels inside the Holy Spirit. We are all one in the Holy Spirit. All the Christians before us are alive in the Holy Spirit with the angels inside the kingdom of God with us, because the kingdom of God is a state of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. This is why the Catholic church talks about talking to the saints and the angels because they are all with us inside the Holy Spirit.


The Kingdom of God Is Not the Kingdom of Heaven


What is the Kingdom of God?


The Holy Spirit is your home and you are the Holy Spirit's home. Our body's are the Temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Cor. 6:19/ 2 Cor. 6:16). We live inside the Holy Spirit (Rom. 8). The Kingdom of God is inside the Holy Spirit (Rom. 14:17). The Holy Spirit is our home. The kingdom of God is an inner righteousness, peace and joy inside the Holy Spirit (Rom. 14:17). The kingdom of God is within us inside the Holy Spirit. The kingdom of God is not the holy Jerusalem that we are going to in Rev. 21 & 22.


What is the Kingdom of Heaven?


The new Jerusalem in Rev. 21 & 22 is our new house on earth. Our external home not within. After we enter the Presence of God the Holy Spirit forever (Eph. 1:13, 14), God puts in a house in the New Jerusalem. We're at home inside the Presence of the Holy Spirit within. But next we need a house to live in. A mansion in the New Jerusalem (Jn. 14:1-4).


A Thing

A Prophecy


I'll give you a thing, a prophecy, about my writings of the New Testament on this my website. I write with the spirit of the Apostle Paul. The apostle Paul writes through me. This is what God revealed to me three years ago in 2020.

If you read my messages, you will conclude with everyone else that I sound like the Apostle Paul. This is because I do not add anything new or hide anything written by the Holy Spirit through Paul. I paraphrase what Paul says. To paraphrase something means to speak it in your own words. Once you understand something, you are able to speak it in your own words. You say the same thing written but in your own words. That's called to "paraphrase".

The spirit of the Apostle Paul writes with me to you to make you understand the Bible, his New Testament, and also to understand what the Bible says about Jesus. This is also why I know that Paul wrote the book of Hebrews because the Holy Spirit told me that he wrote it. But if you get your info from books and men instead of God and the angels, you will not know who wrote the book of Hebrews because there are no signatures of who wrote it.

Today, people fall under God's power whenever they enter the Presence of the Holy Spirit. This could be when people first get saved or when they enter into prayer, praise & Bible study at church or at home. It's really up to the Holy Spirit when this happens. I'm making a point, which is in the next paragraph. Falling down in the Presence of the Holy Spirit happens mostly when people get saved. Once you're saved and already fell down and got anointed, it still happens but not as much. The first visitation from heaven will definitely knock you down.


My Point About the Anointing

Which Comes from Personal Experience

I've been baptized into the Holy Spirit Since 1991 - 22-Years

From the Date of this Post


So, I am not saying that when you visit me that you'll see angels that look like God in my house with me. Nor am I saying that I am falling down in their presence like Daniel did when I write their messages from God.


Chapter 3


Genuine Prophecy


Revelation 22:17-19

Authorized (King James) Version

{Paraphrased}


17 And {God} the {Holy} Spirit and the bride {of Christ, the Church} say, "Come". And let him that {hears} say, "Come". And let him that is {thirsty} come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. 18 For I testify {to} every man that {hears} the words of the prophecy of this book, "If any man shall add {to} these things, God shall add {to} him the plagues that are written in this book. 19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book".


When I write with God and the angels here, I am NOT adding or taking from the word of God as Rev. 22:18, 19 warns against doing. I am doing what the writers of the Bible did. I am writing through the anointing & Presence of God what God and the angels tell me to write. I am not changing scripture. I am paraphrasing and making you understand the Bible with messages from the Holy Spirit and the angels of Light, because they want mankind to understand the message in the Bible.

What the Holy Spirit and the archangels do, is say things to me that make it easy to understand the Bible. This is not adding or taking from prophecy. It is genuine prophecy. I am paraphrasing scriptural truth. Not adding or taking from it. I am giving you my understanding of the Bible and my understanding comes from the angels and the Lord, Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

So, I write to you what the angels say for me to write to make you understand what the Holy Spirit is saying in the Bible. My understanding comes from their paraphrasing. My paraphrasing is their understanding of the Bible. It is their words I write in red. So, I'm not misinterpreting scriptures. I'm making you understand what scripture is saying with the authors of the Bible i.e. God, the angels and the prophets and apostles.


Chapter 4


In Closing


Three Prophecies that Surmise this Message


Most people are not ready for me. They are not ready to hear these three following prophecies from the other world.


  1. That good angels can possess your body like demons do

  2. That you can witness and write with the archangels

  3. That you can write with the saints, apostles and prophets in heaven


God's angels can possess your body like Satan's angels do. The difference is that Satan forces you to do things against your will. But God's angels do good things for you in approval of your will.

For example, you need to fight to protect yourself from your enemies but your enemies are better fighters than you are. So, the angels will fight them in you in line with your will, but in fear of your mind.

You want to win the fight and the angels are better fighters than you and your enemies. So, they move your body parts to fight while your mind is scared because something inside you is moving your body for you in line with your will to win the fight. It's a good possession, not an evil one.

God's angels and His saints in heaven all live with you in the kingdom of God inside the Holy Spirit. They can talk to you, give you visions, prophesy through you, write with you and fight through you, if that's what God wants. As the Lord through Paul says in 1 Cor. 12:11, it's up to God the Holy Spirit who gets what gifts in the kingdom of God.


Post Script


Respect the Lord

Don't fight Over Why You Aren't the Prophet


It happens all the time. Christians see others who have gifts that they covet. Remember that the Holy Spirit says that coveting is idolatry (Col. 3:5) and is rebellious to God like witchcraft (1 Sam. 15:23). Witchcraft is about power not fellowship with God. Don't make a god out of the Holy Spirit's anointing. Respect the Lord and your brother and sister in church because the anointing is a Person. The Anointing is the Holy Spirit, and He is the priceless riches of eternity.


It's None of Your Business Who and What God the Holy Spirit Makes People in Church Services

That's Up to God Not You


Work On Your Own Salvation

Not Someone Else's


Philippians 2:12-13

Authorized (King James) Version

{Paraphrased}


12 {The Apostle Paul said}

{Thus}, my beloved {Christian family}, as {you} have always obeyed {my doctrine}, not {just in front of me}, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation {with God in} fear and trembling {respect}. 13 {Because} it is God {Whom works inside} you both to will and to do of His good pleasure {both the "want to obey" and "how" (the willingness and the way) to obey God's Will for you}.


Listen to the Lord Jesus' rebuke in Jn. 21:20-23 and don't complain to God as Peter did about your brother or sister in church. That's not your call or business. Work out your own salvation with the Lord. Not someone's else's because you're not responsible for someone else's salvation (Phil. 2:12, 13).


You Follow Jesus


John 21:20-23

Authorized (King James) Version

{Paraphrased}


20 Then {the Apostle} Peter, turning {around}, {saw} the disciple whom Jesus loved {the Apostle John} following {behind them}. {whom} also leaned on {Jesus'} breast {during the Last Supper} and said,


"Lord, which is he that {betrays You}?


21 Peter seeing him {says} to Jesus,


"Lord, and what shall this man do"?


22 Jesus {says to Peter}, "If I {want} that {John shall stay alive until I come back in the resurrection}, what is that to you? You follow Me".


23 Then went this saying abroad among the {Christian brotherhood}, that that disciple {John will} not die. Yet Jesus {did not say to {Peter}, "{John will} not die". But,


"If I {want} that {John shall stay alive until I come back in the resurrection}, what is that to you?


God Is Sovereign & Omnipotent

Who Do You Think You Are to Talk to God Like That!?


Romans 9:13-26

Authorized (King James) Version

{Paraphrased}


13 As it is written {in the Old Testament - God says} ,


"Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated {Mal. 1:2, 3}.


14 What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God {Is God being unrighteous and showing favoritism by loving one and hating another}? God forbid. 15 {Because God says} to Moses,


"I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion" {Ex. 33:19}.


16 So then {Christianity is not about what you want and can do on your own, nor about getting what you want and getting your way in church. It's about what God wants and does for you all in mercy - Christianity is the gift of God because you are saved by His grace - Eph. 2:8} 17 {Because} the scripture {says to} Pharaoh,


"{Your civil authority is like Mine and the reason that I} have I raised {you} up {to rule with this civil authority over My people, is so} that I might {show the civil authority} in {you to be Mine}, and that {I might glorify} My Name {God, by showing everyone on earth that I am the King over all the earth, and not you}" {Ex. 9:16}.


18 Therefore {God has} mercy on whom He will have mercy, and whom He {wants to harden} He {hardens}.

19 {You will} say then {to} me,


"Why {does God} yet find fault {He is in control of our freewill Because} who {has} resisted His will? {We cannot fight God}


20 Nay but, {mister}, who {are you to reply} against God? Shall the thing formed say to Him that formed it,


"Why {have You} made me {like this}?


21 {Doesn't} the potter {have this authority} over the clay, of the same lump, to make one vessel {to honor}, and another {to dishonor}? 22 What if God, willing to shew His wrath, and to make His power known {through Pharaoh}, endured with much longsuffering {Pharaoh and} the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction, 23 {so} that He might make known the riches of His glory on the vessels of mercy, which He had {preplanned for} glory, 24 {which is} us {Christians today}, whom {God has} called {to glory and salvation for eternal life with Him}? Not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles. 25 As {the Holy Spirit through Hosea} says,


"I will call them My people, which were not My people, and {I will call} her beloved, which was not beloved" {Hos. 2:23}. 26 And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said {to} them, {"You} are not My people, there shall they be called "the children of the living God" {Hos. 1:10}.


If you disrespect the Lord like this, God will correct you


Hebrews 12:5-17

Authorized (King James) Version

{Paraphrased}


And {you} have forgotten the exhortation which {speaks to} you as {to} children,


"My son, despise not the chastening of the Lord nor faint when {you are} rebuked {by} Him. {Because} whom the Lord {loves} He {chastens}, and {He scourges} every son whom He {receives" - Pr. 3:11, 12}.


If {you} endure chastening, God {deals} with you as with sons. {Because} what son is he whom the father {chastens} not? But if {you are} without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then {you are} bastards {fatherless}, and not sons. Furthermore, we have had fathers of our flesh {biological fathers} which corrected us, and we gave them {respect}. {Should} we not much rather be in subjection {like this} to the Father of spirits and live? 10 {Because our biological fathers} verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure. But {God does it} for our profit {so} that we might be partakers of His holiness.

11 Now no chastening for the present {seems} to be joyous, but grievious. Nevertheless, afterward it {yields} the peaceable fruit of righteousness {in} them which are exercised thereby. 12 {Thus}, lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees,13 and make straight paths for your feet. {So} that which is lame {will not} be turned out of the way. But let it rather be healed.

14 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord. 15 {Look} diligently {so that no one will} fail of the grace of God. {So that} any root of bitterness {will not spring} up {and} trouble you, {because a root of bitterness will defile your faith with unbelief}. 16 {So that} any fornicator, or {defiled} person, {will not sell your soul to gain this world} as Esau, who {in unbelief} for one morsel of meat sold his birthright. 17 {Because you from scripture - } know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing {like we inherit salvation and eternal life}, he was rejected {by God because} he {was indifferent and godless and} found no place of repentance {which means that he missed God's appointed time to repent and repented after the appointed time}, though he sought it carefully with tears {This means that the root of bitterness will make you indifferent to God and will take you beyond repentance like Esau. It will uproot & wither your faith into unbelief so that you become corrupt and lose your salvation by doing things your way; abominable works, instead of by God's word - Jn. 15. Faith without works of love is dead Jms. 2:14-26. To turn this around, we need to repent or turn back to God by accepting correction from His word. We need to listen to God when He sets a time appointed to repent because if you're saved, the Lord will talk to you about your indifference and He is able to save you from the damnation of Esau who was beyond repentance, and though he repented with tears, he repented too late and repented after God appointed a time for repentance. Unbelief, or, withered faith, is atheism, which means to not believe in God. A root of bitterness will make you believe that there is no God, which is atheism - Ps. 14:1. God's warning here in verse 17 about Esau is to repent. Esau was godless so he was indifferent to God and His good promises, or, His word. God is comparing a corrupted Christian to the godless man Esau because you can become godless like Esau through a root of bitterness is you do not repent of indifference to God, and you will suffer the punishment of missing God's promise to the repentant & faithful of eternal life and will end up in hell as a godless one, because you were indifferent to repentance like the godless are - Mt. 24-25.}


Satan's War Strategy

Persecution

(Mt. 5:39)

Unrepentance

(Heb. 12:15-17)


Dead Faith

(Jms. 2:14-26)


Hell

(Mt. 25:14-30)


A root of bitterness uproots the roots of God's love in your heart and makes it cold, frozen and paralyzed from the violent persecution, or, abounding iniquity. A root of bitterness or cold love will make you barren and unfruitful in God's love or works of faith. As faith without works is dead. This can take you to hell if you don't repent when God says to. The root of bitterness replaces the root of God's love and stops it from growing before it comes to fruition. Your faith and love become corrupted and defiled. Faith without works is dead and love becomes barren and instead of repenting, you become indifferent and won't repent.

World without end. Amen.
