I have just written a paper about the false prophet, John Calvin, and in discussion with Victor, he said:
“No Calvinists are we, nor any -ists, unless we are nonists! A new word, a new category, a new ID, a new thing.
The Lord is doing a new thing.”
Our identities and lives are in Him, not in our doctrines or denials of false doctrine. All of those things, good and necessary as they are, are derived from our walk with the Lord Jesus Christ.
It is like Victor’s song, “It’s great to be somebody, because you’re nobody, because you’re His.”
Yes, it is an exclusive cult, which by nature says “no” to everything of man, and “yes” to everything of God. This is that well-known yet secret, narrow way in which you will find life.
– Paul Cohen (March 6, 2008)
Coming out of manmade religion is not enough. Faith and obedience is required to enter into His Rest.
This is the Day of the Lord, the day of the vengeance of God, the day in which He gathers His elect from the four winds. Now is the fulfillment of the last great solemn Feast, the Feast of Tabernacles, which completes God's work. It is entering the rest and taking up the cross the final time, to the death. The Lord now comes to establish proper order between spirit and soul, husband and wife, and every believer, bringing His Body into perfect unity. This is the gathering.
Satan promotes legitimacy and credibility of his kingdom by glorifying his gates of Hell in order to keep men in darkness and maintain his control over their souls. And men must justify their lawlessness and independence of God, because they worship what, when, where, and how they please. As it is written, “In those days there was no king in Israel: every man did that which was right in his own eyes” (Judges 21:25).
