The Serpent, the Woman and the Flood

 New – Video of the presentation added

“And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth. And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.” (Revelation 12:15-17)

Who is that woman? What is the flood? In the book of Revelation a lot applies to our generation. When a person reads it and gets confused…Confusion comes when someone was rooted in traditions of men and then he come across the verses that contradict their traditions. Confusion also comes when there is a lack of integrity, which leads to lack of the Lord be able to reveal His Word to you. Revelation from the truth of God’s Word begins with an honest heart. If we lack honesty God will actually withhold the truth from us, He will even send a strong delusion, as in Thessalonians, that you might believe a lie.

Men can deceive you, but it is another thing when God deceives you. Those who do not have desire for truth will be swept away with this strong delusion.

How do we discover the truth? Suppose we say, “Brother Rodes has all the answers, ask him.” This is not the way it works.

Pray For Yourself

Reuben Esh

Апостол Рубен Эш. Apostle Reuben Esh

I came back from a couple of trips overseas just recently as most of you have heard.  I just came back from India.  We just had a wonderful time over there.  I took a team over there from the States.  There has been a number of people who said, I just want to go with you overseas.  I wasn’t sure how that would work out because when I go it’s usually not to do work, its usually to preach the Gospel.  Usually we don’t need more than one or two preachers, so I never saw a good opportunity for that until this trip to India.  So, I said, we’ll take a few of these people who’ve been asking me to go along.  And, this ministry that I work with over there, formed some evangelistic teams that would go out into the villages, while I was holding a pastor’s conference.  We really had a good time.  India is so unusual, so unlike any other place on the face of the earth.  You have to be there to grasp how odd, how weird and how different this place really is.  It is so different from American culture, it is hard to fathom.

Apostle Reuben Esh

Reality check: Lu 21:31 So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand.

32 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.

33 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.

34 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.

35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.

36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

Endtime promise: Ps 121:1 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.

The Truth Will Set You Free

There is a reason why people do not enter the gates of Heaven.

Isaiah 53:1 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?  2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. (Isa 53:1-2 KJV)

Refiner’s Fire – The Truth will set you Free – 002 from The Refiner’s Fire on Vimeo.

When the Truth came people did not recognize Him. When people get acquainted with the truth most of them don’t recognize it. The same way it is today. “He was despised”. Truth is despised and rejected of men.

Many pastors and leaders have ignored through the generations the truth inherent in the Word of God and brought peril and a strange gospel into their churches. Though the Truth is at times hard to swallow, the application of truth to our lives causes us to live in freedom from sin and oppression of the devil.

Ellen

Have you ever heard about a book “White Lie” by Walter Rea?

We will talk about Ellen today. Ellen White. Some of us grew up with Ellen.

NIV Hebrews 11:1-2, 39-40: “1 Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. 2 This is what the ancients were commended for. 39 These were all commended for their faith, yet none of them received what had been promised. 40 God had planned something better for us so that only together with us would they be made perfect.”

I want to throw the name “Ellen” into that mix of those ancients who were commended for their faith and tell you that only together with us can Ellen be redeemed perfect. And we are the ones who will have to redeem her. You know why? Because we crucified her. We created an Ellen White of our own choosing. Between her death in 1915 and the time I was born in 1952 something caused the church to make her into a hammer used to pound people into submission, to control people. If you got into discussion all you needed to do to quote Ellen White and conversation stopped. She is a final word. Remember those days? We made her infallible, a Pope. We created Pope Ellen.

Today many SDA college students do not know who she is.

The pendulum slowly is going to swing back into a healthy place. Worshiping Ellen White is not healthy. Totally ignoring her as she never existed is not healthy either.

There is a reason why I seldom quote her. Because she said not to. So I’ve taken her at her word.

7 Ps of a Peaceable Habitation

Apostle Reuben Esh

Апостол Рубен Эш. Apostle Reuben EshIt’s going to be a lot of chaos, especially for those who live in the natural. The opposite of that and the plan of God for our life is to experience peace wherever we are at.

Isaiah 32: 15-20   15 Until the spirit be poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness be a fruitful field, and the fruitful field be counted for a forest.  16 Then judgment shall dwell in the wilderness, and righteousness remain in the fruitful field.  17 And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever.  18 And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places;  19 When it shall hail, coming down on the forest; and the city shall be low in a low place.  20 Blessed are ye that sow beside all waters, that send forth thither the feet of the ox and the ass.

The manifestation of God’s promises is not so much in an appointed time in history as much as it is for the righteous of God to understand that these things belong to them, they are a part of the inheritance and the violent is going to take it by force.

The promises of God today are “yes” and “amen”. They are for us to get a hold of.

2 Corinthians 1:20 For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.

It is part of our inheritance and the violent take them by force.  The people who do not really want it will not get it.

Carnal Vs Spiritual

For you to really understand Romans chapter 8 you have to understand Romans 7.

One of the favorite verses of a lot of carnal Christians is Romans 7:15 15 For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I.” Paul is not talking here about his present time, but about the time when he was not right with God. The same man he cries out, “24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?”. Then he gives the answer, “25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Now I am free. Romans chapter 8. “1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.  2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.”

The law could not do what it needed because of the flesh is involved. Flesh hates laws. Continue reading Carnal Vs Spiritual

On the Damascus Road

3 And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven:  4 And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?  5 And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.  6 And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do (Acts 9:3-6).

He was passionate about the god he thought he served. He was given to reprobate mind. I was asking the Lord, what was so special about this man that You chose him and made him to make a U-turn? Continue reading On the Damascus Road

Only One Will Win

Many people are finding out, that the god they serve is not alive at all, he is not real. Many people become angered, because the thing they thought real is not real. We serve a living God.

“Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.” (1 Corinthians 9:24)

Everybody starts to run, but only one will win this race. You are going to win. Anything in your life that is not real will hinder you from winning. Hypocrisy is not going to win, anything that is fictitious, not real. If you try to be happy and have love, and you are not really happy or don’t really love, you won’t win. What love and joy you have, you invest it, and it comes back more.

Worship

People gather together to worship, but they don’t know how to do that. We will learn how to do it today. We will learn it from those who are in heaven worshiping God directly, from their first hand experience.

6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. 8 And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. 9 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; Continue reading Worship

What Will Make the Remnant Prevail

Apostle Reuben Esh

Revelation 12:1 – 13: And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: 2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. 3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. 4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.

Neither Give Place To the Devil

Apostle Reuben Esh

Ephesians 4:27: Neither give place to the devil.

The issue at hand here is the casting out devils. It is very important for you to understand this. Jesus was wrongly accused about casting our devils by the power of the devil. It response He say, “the house devided cannot stand”, i.e. it is not possible.

The wrong interpretation of Matthew 12:29 “Or else how can one enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house” has led to charismatics tradition and rendered this portion of the Scripture of none affect in people’s life. It has to do with binding devils. It also introduced spiritual warfare mindset, which really may cause some problems. I believe in rebuking and casting out devils. But I do not believe that binding the devil is scriptural.

The reason people bind the devil because they think that “strong man” in verse 29 is the devil. The interesting thing you never see Jesus binding the devil. You never see the early church binding the devil. They always loose the power of the devil.

You never see the devil bound until Revelation. I’ll prove to you that the strong man is not the devil.
