The Sword

“Do not think that I have come to bring peace on earth. I did not come to send peace, but a sword. For I have come to set a man against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. And a man’s foes shall be those of his own household” (Matthew 10:34-36 MKJV).

 

I am not sent for division’s sake;

I do not come to attack;

Strife and debate I do not sow,

Yet all these are found where I go.

I haven’t come for evil’s sake,

Bearing trouble, sorrow, and pain,

Yet the sword I bear

Will cut in two

And each half in two again.

There are those who wish to take the truth

And claim it for their own.

But others, joined to them, declare,

“If you go, you go alone.”

I cannot help but cause this woe,

If I am to speak what is true;

I can only hope as time goes on,

That your loved ones will come, too.

But you cannot wait for them to come,

The time to heed is now.

Just as you cannot wait for yours,

The call cannot wait for you.

As friends increase, my enemies mount

In numbers greater still.

There are very few who know they are sick

And eager to swallow the pill.

But many there are who take offense

That the truth should upset their life;

And hence the division, the sorrow, the pain,

The debate, the anger, the strife.

But come if you will, take the medicine,

Be healed in your soul, set free.

In place of what you leave behind,

There are far greater things to be.

  Page 2   PART NINE - Signs of New Times (cont.) Particle - A Word for Darrell BeaudoinWe met again with Darrell Beaudoin for 3½ hours. He subjected me to a Bible study and steered me into the SDA doctrinal position. Marilyn had these words for him: "What you are seeking to establish in the carnal will happen in the spiritual."Darrell was trying to bring me to a satisfactory spiritual place, as he saw it. The Lord was establishing that with me in reality and not in doctrine only, not that Darrell's Adventist doctrine was necessarily accurate. For example, he denounced the receiving of the Spirit and the gifts. I was surprised at this, seeing Ellen G. White was revered by Darrell and the SDAs as a prophetess and she exercised spiritual gifts.I saw labor etched into Darrell's countenance. I saw the man of sin, the mark of the beast, the manifestation of the power of flesh, the usurpation of the throne of God, the imitation of Christ. He advocated keeping the Sabbath, yet had no rest.Particle - The Coming of the LordMarilyn and I had a discussion and disagreement of the nature of the coming of the Lord. I was struggling over whether it was spiritual, literal, or both.

Page 5 PART SEVEN – Surprise Visitors to Day 888 (cont.) Particle – Paul Confesses I received a letter from Paul, confessing that he was bitter towards God for not having been given Sierra Wolfe for a wife, and that he had a hard time making contact with me – a “battle,” he called it. It was that bitterness that drove him to quit Davis Business Machines and go wandering, though, at the time, he had given other reasons. I found that I couldn't respond, knowing he had a ways to go before we could get together again. Particle – Lois Prophesies: Watch, Wait, Trust On February 19, 1998, Lois had the following prophecy: “What is going on? This is the question being asked daily of My people. I hear their cry but could not answer because it was not completed. The work that is and has been done is nearing to a close and I will be free to then speak of the wonderful works which I have been preparing for My saints. My silence has been for your protection and your strength. Behold, I come quickly, and I will minister to you all. Watch and wait and do not despair. Put your trust in Me. In My written Word, it is said that I go to prepare a place for you, that where I am you may be also. I have prepared a place for you and it will be revealed shortly. Again I say, watch and wait; do not despair.” Particle – Don't Try to Understand On so many occasions, the Lord admonished us to cease trying to understand what was going on. Everything was so s...

  PART TWELVE – Troublous Times to Satan's Second Expulsion (cont.)  Particle – Never Right to Never WrongRecently, we’ve been finding that when things seem to go wrong, they are introductions to better things. While we were meeting with Bonnie Kam at the Southpointe Mall in Calgary, our car battery died on us because we left the headlights on. So, I went into Payless Shoe Source to use their phone. It so happened that Sheila Koop, the lady looking after the store, had just strained her back and was in considerable discomfort. I told her about the Chi machine we had with us, but she was afraid to try it on the floor in case her boss should walk in at any time.However, her husband Conroy happened by, though he was supposed to be working in Okotoks. He tried the Chi, liked it, and asked us to meet with them that evening in their house, which we did, and they bought it.The Canadian Tire store was in the mall where our battery went dead. Stan, a serviceman was right over to recharge the battery, charged us $20 and we were off. The small detour pressed us for time, but it turned out to be a pleasurable and prosperous one.This has been the pattern recently. The Lord has been making lemonade from lemons.I’ve said there was a time when I could never do anything right; now it seems I can’t do anything wrong, not that one can willfully do wrong and escape judgment.Except? I was debating openly whether or not to give Koops the shipping on the Chi,...
