The Seeker Vol. 20



THANK YOU

For Supporting Bible Mysteries Podcast!

The world is fast approaching the end game, and your monthly support will allow us to continue to reveal the coming deception before time runs out.

 

To our Seekers - Premium Subscribers

We are deeply humbled by your prayers and generous financial support of the Unlocking the Bible Now ministry. Much like Paul's acknowledgment of the dedication by the household of Stephanas to serve the Lord in 1 Corinthians 16:15 who "have addicted themselves to the ministry of the saints," we are immensely grateful for your faithfulness to help and labor with us in our addiction to reach more of the lost while we have time!



On the Patio - Prayer and Fasting


Just as the modern western world either ignores or disregards the spiritual war we wage, so, too, do we often ignore the spiritual impact that can be made through prayer and fasting. While some fast for health reasons, the Scripture shows us that prayer and fasting were used for wisdom of the Holy Ghost, to acknowledge and confess transgressions, and to cast out certain types of demons. Is it time to return to including fasting in our spiritual walk with the Lord?




 


Article - Harlots and Heifers

There is much speculation about the timing of finding the red heifer to begin Mosaic sacrifices again and the building of the temple in Jerusalem. Christians globally can get excited each time a pure red heifer has been bred in or brought to Israel, thinking this is an indication or sign of the times. Jesus said nothing of a red heifer, but He did tell us of signs to look for. Prophetically, we are still in the beginning of sorrows, but one thing is certain: the newly rebuilt temple will be polluted by the antichrist, and the system around it will be tied to Mystery, Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots and Abominations of the Earth!

Brother Scott Answers Your Questions


From Seeker jawilliams07 :


Brother Scott: love the ministry.  Considering all the laws the Jews were given in Exodus, Leviticus, and Numbers, can we blame them for being so skeptical of Jesus?  I BELIEVE JESUS IS KING AND OUR SAVIOR!  But God really punished the Jews in the desert, so I'm not surprised they were so strict with sabbath healings and on the lookout for false profits, etc.  



Hi, jawilliams! 


Thank for the question. I agree the law was onerous and hard to keep. Paul explains its purpose:


Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin. Roman 3:19-20


Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law. But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe. But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. Galatians 3:21-25


However, the Jews turned the law into a system of works while in Babylon, and left the spirit and intent of it:


Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying, Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread. But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition? Matthew 15:1-3


Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition. Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. Matthew 15:6b-9


It wasn't all of Israel that was skeptical of Jesus. We have to recall that the history of Israel was one of turning away from God constantly to worship idols. This was largely due to the leadership that persuaded the people. When Jesus finally did come to offer them the kingdom, He criticised the leaders, not the people of Israel:


Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. Matthew 23:23


Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God. John 8:42-47.


I would argue that the skepticism of the Pharisees was not because of the law; they are the ones who turned it into a system of works. It was because they were demon controlled, just as modern leaders are today. Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees!


I hope this helps!

Hi Scott.  I love, love, love your show and have binge listened more than once!! I’m planning to get a couple of books  you recommended: Birthright, Ryan Pitterson’s books, and then there was one about heaven, and I’m unable to dig up who the author was - you had him on your show. Hoping you can tell me.


Also, my two children are 21 and 20. I raised them and we seemed to do ok, but we never spoke of Jesus. Now I have learned and go to a Bible Baptist church. My two kids believe Jesus is real but that is IT; they don’t do anything different, living college life, etc. I worry they’ll be left behind after the rapture. I pray for them, but what else should I do?


Thank you for all you do and preach, and for your awesome podcast that has changed my life for the better! I was losing my mind in the world of politics and being awake to the cesspool of government we have when most others didn’t realize. I’m in a lawsuit against my job for forced vaccinations which I think is killing people, and coming back to Jesus saved my sanity. ♥️🙏🏼

Hi, Michelle.


First, the guest we had on who wrote the third book you mentioned is Creation “In the Beginning” by Gary P. Miller, and it can be ordered here: http://www.grace-harbor-church.org/


I also wanted to share some verses to give you comfort about your family. All we are called to do is present the gospel: it is up to those who hear it to believe.


For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. 1 Corinthians 1:18-21


But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus. Romans 3:21-26


One thing I constantly have to remind myself about my own kids or anyone I preach the gospel to: we just present the message. It is up the the Holy Spirit to convict the hearts of those who hear to believe and call on the Lord for salvation. Many times I want to do more and try to MAKE them believe. It just shows our heart and zeal for them to know and believe. The truth is, we need to speak the truth then get out of the way and allow the Holy Ghost to do its job. We can pray for them, always be there for them if they have questions, and certainly acknowledge the Lord in all our ways (Proverbs 3:5-6). Other than that, we must trust the Lord and His process of conviction to turn their hearts to Him.


And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will. 2 Timothy 2:24-26


Notice those who oppose themselves to the truth repent and recover themselves out of the snare of the devil. This is because the Lord caused them to see their need. All we do is plant the seed; God gives the increase!

I am one of your premium subscribers a seeker and really appreciate your ministry. In the small town that I reside in, I have been attending a Bible study for a couple of years now. The minister of the church directed the study, and I would say he did a good job getting us to dig into the gospels for their meaning. A few months ago he suffered a medical issue that that was severe enough to make him decide to retire. He no longer wanted to be in charge of the Bible study, but all of us still wanted to continue the study. So what to do? 


Well, I know about your Bible study on UTBNOW podcast and we are now watching and using your material for our weekly study. I have so far not used any episodes that go into the fallen angels, ufos, giants, or Nephilim. I think that these should be used as a part of the study, so here is my dilemma. I am fairly certain that these subjects would come as a bit of a shock to the people that attend the study. This is material that is not often preached from the pulpit. 


I tried to have a conversation about the Genesis 6 story where the sons of God took wives of the children of men and was told by the minister that angels are not sexual, they do not marry or reproduce. Anyway, I don't mean to go on and on, but I think you get my point. Question is: how can I introduce this part of the Bible for study without making people think this is too weird or say, “I don't think this is for me”? Or should I just try and stick with more conventional episodes/messages? 


Sincerely, Brad W.



Hi, Brad


Thank you so much for subscribing and writing! I so appreciate your sincere and heartfelt desire to teach God’s Word.

I also appreciate your concern about diving into things in Scripture that are uncomfortable to most. I was there myself once, so I know how it feels to “go down the rabbit hole.”


My approach is this:


The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law. - Deuteronomy 29:29


God wants us to know His secret things.


And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. - Romans 13:11-12


God had Paul write for us to wake up and realize the time is short.


Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. - 1 Thessalonians 5:6


He also warns us to watch and be sober (serious minded).


My position is we need to wake the church up to be aware of the times and to watch for the Lord’s return. We do this in love, with patience, and not striving, but we must preach all the Word of God to be effective “stewards of the mysteries of God.” 


Hopefully our podcast and Sunday messages will help you guide the group to a better understanding. There’s no need to rush right in and hit them full force, but perhaps let a little out at a time to pique their interest? Sometimes less is more!


I hope this helps. Let me know what I can do to assist.


Bro. Scott


 

Podcast Listener Testimonials



I’m only on episode 52 now but I am so excited to have discovered you guys!  Your explanations just make sense and you back everything up with Scripture. That’s why I feel the Lord led me to find you. Thanking Our Lord! I’m now a monthly subscriber! I listen to you on my lunch breaks when I walk around the hospital and when I come home after work each day. I’m an oncology nurse in a busy oncology (3 surgeons!) office.

I am new to religion, that being said "Thank you for doing this." I am learning so much and I am very thankful for Bible Mysteries, Scott and his co-hosts. Giving people a safe space to talk about God, and all things "Bible Mysteries," is a relief.

Enjoyable and informative. I would love to be part of the discussion, that alone should be a testament to how interesting their talks are. Keep up all the hard work!

I listen to these (episodes) over and over. Can't wait for the next one. The Bible should never become boring, there is so much skipped over and hidden to the everyday eye. But Brother Scott brings the mysteries to life!
