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)
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.
What is the Church? Many flounder in confusion - condemned, doubting, struggling, reveling, and listening to men, rather than to God. There are only two churches in this world - the true and the false. Of which are you a member? You can't be a member of both.
Coming out of manmade religion is not enough. Faith and obedience is required to enter into His Rest.
