Voices from the Edge of Eternity
Compiled by John Myers

Last Hours On Earth Of The Noted French Infidel, Voltaire

Pages 21-22:

“When Voltaire felt the stroke which he realized must terminate in death, he was overpowered with remorse.  He at once sent for the priest and wanted to be ‘reconciled to the church.’  His infidel flatterers hastened to his chamber to prevent his incantation, but it was only to witness his ignominy and their own.  He cursed them to their faces and, since his distress was increased by their presence, repeatedly and loudly exclaimed, ‘Begone!  It is you that have brought me to my present condition.  Leave me, I say — begone!  What a wretched glory is this which you have produced for me!’

“Hoping to allay his anguish by a written recantation, he had it prepared, signed it, and saw it witnessed.  But it was all unavailing.  For two months he was tortured with such an agony as led him at times to gnash his teeth in impotent rage against God and man.  At other times, in plaintive accents, he would plead, ‘O Christ!  O Lord Jesus!’  Then, turning his face he would cry out, ‘I must die — abandoned of God and of men!’

“As his end drew near his condition became so frightful that his infidel associates were afraid to approach his bedside.  Still they guarded the door, that others might not know how awfully an infidel was compelled to die.  Even his nurse repeatedly said that for all the wealth of Europe she would never see another infidel die.  It was a scene of horror that lies beyond all exaggeration.

“Such is the well-attested end of this man who had a natural sovereignty of intellect, excellent education, great wealth and much earthly honor.”

About ten days ago I was talking with Bo (he and his wife, Melissa, have been letting me stay at their place for over a month now) and he told me that he had been working on a house in Hailey, Idaho that day.  He has done a lot of construction work in the Hailey/Ketchum area in the past few years.  Bo told me that he talked with the painter who was also doing some work on the house.  He told the painter that he and his wife and kids picked up this hitchhiker (me) a week before Thanksgiving south of Bellevue.  They drove him to Shoshone and dropped him off.  The hitchhiker camped out that night and they met him again at the gas station the next morning.  Bo gave the hitchhiker his address.  The hitchhiker hit the road and hitchhiked to Montana and back into Idaho and has stayed with Bo’s family since just before Thanksgiving.  Bo also mentioned that the hitchhiker had a couple of books published.

The painter told Bo that he had picked me up a few years ago in Nevada—maybe in the Elko, Nevada area.  He said that the hitchhiker had a couple of books published and also had a couple of blogs that he worked on.  He then told Bo that a friend of his picked me up a year earlier than he did somewhere in Nevada.  It is such a small world.

Why did this happen?  To me it is confirmation that I am supposed to stay with Bo and Melissa for a while.  We have had some really good fellowship.

A Prayer in Protest of Injustice

_____

Psalm 94

1 O LORD God, to whom vengeance belongeth; O God, to whom vengeance belongeth, shew thyself.
2 Lift up thyself, thou judge of the earth: render a reward to the proud.
3 LORD, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked triumph?
4  How long shall they utter and speak hard things? and all the workers of iniquity boast themselves?
5 They break in pieces thy people, O LORD, and afflict thine heritage.
6 They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the fatherless.
7 Yet they say, The LORD shall not see, neither shall the God of Jacob regard it.
8 Understand, ye brutish among the people: and ye fools, when will ye be wise?
9 He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? he that formed the eye, shall he not see?
10 He that chastiseth the heathen, shall not he correct? he that teacheth man knowledge, shall not he know?
11 The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.
12 Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, O LORD, and teachest him out of thy law;
13 That thou mayest give him rest from the days of adversity, until the pit be digged for the wicked.
14 For the LORD will not cast off his people, neither will he forsake his inheritance.
15 But judgment shall return unto righteousness: and all the upright in heart shall follow it.
16 Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?
17 Unless the LORD had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence.
18 When I said, My foot slippeth; thy mercy, O LORD, held me up.
19 In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul.
20 Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?
21 They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood.
22 But the LORD is my defence; and my God is the rock of my refuge.
23 And he shall bring upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; yea, the LORD our God shall cut them off.

Minority Report   4 comments

minority report

Back in 2004, I was hitchhiking and I ended up in Clarkson, Washington.  I got a motel room and the Holy Ghost fell very heavy that night and into the next morning.  I knew something was up—I was in that motel room for a reason. I turned on the TV early that morning and the film Minority Report was on some channel—I knew in my spirit that the Lord wanted me to watch that film.

I watched the film and thought it was very good.  There were these three people—two men and one woman—who were called precogs (precognitive) and they had a gift of foreseeing the future.  The woman precog was especially talented.  In their dreams or visions they could predict a murder before it happened.  Tom Cruise played a cop who worked with the precogs to prevent crimes, like murder, from happening.

Later in 2008, I was hitchhiking in Nebraska and I walked several miles to this place that had a motel and cafe.  The Lord told me to get a motel room that night.  That afternoon the film Minority Report was on TV and I watched it again.  The Lord showed me that my dreams would come true—the dreams that the Lord gave me would come true.  I thought of my very vivid dream of the Las Vegas Earthquake.

I think it is great how the Lord will use circumstances, people, films and other things to get our attention to show us things and teach us things in our walk with the Lord.  Jesus Christ is Lord over our lives everyday.

I think that it is very interesting that in the film, John Anderton had his eyes surgically removed and then had to get new eyes for him to penetrate the PreCrime organization and get to the truth of Ann Lively’s and his son’s death.  New eyes, new birth through baptism (he was hiding under water in the bath tub), new vision (prophetic vision with the help of the precog Agatha) and new life.  And this is how John Anderton exposed and defeated  Director Lamar Burgess and the Gates of Hell.

50 Year Old Prophecy from Tozer   6 comments

prophets

PROPHETIC WORD FROM 50 YEARS AGO – A. W. TOZER

“Let me go out on a limb a little bit and prophesy. I see the time coming
when all the holy men whose eyes have been opened by the Holy Spirit will
desert worldly Evangelicalism, one by one. The house will be left desolate
and there will not be a man of God, a man in whom the Holy Spirit dwells,
left among them.

“I hear Jesus saying . . . Matt 23: 37-38: ‘O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one killing
the prophets and stoning those who are sent to her, how often would I have
gathered your children together, even as a hen gathers her chicks under her
wings, and you would not! Behold, your house is left to you desolate.’

“As the Church now stands, the man who sees this condition of worldly
evangelicalism is written off as somewhat fanatical. But the day is coming
when the house will be left desolate and there will not be a man of God
among them. I would like to live long enough to watch this develop and see
how things turn out. I would like to live to see the time when the men and
woman of God—holy, separated and spiritually enlightened—walk out of the
evangelical church and form a group of their own; when they get off the
sinking ship and let her go down in the brackish and worldliness and form a
new ark to ride out the storm.”

Shiloh
By Tim Shey

Brutal deathdance;
My eyes weep blood.
Pharisees smile like vipers,
They laugh and mock their venom:
Blind snakes leading
The deaf and dumb multitude.

Where are my friends?
The landscape is dry and desolate.
They have stretched my shredded body
On this humiliating tree.

The hands that healed
And the feet that brought good news
They have pierced
With their fierce hatred.

The man-made whip
That opened up my back
Preaches from a proper pulpit.
They sit in comfort:
That vacant-eyed congregation.
The respected, demon-possessed reverend
Forks his tongue
Scratching itchy ears
While Cain bludgeons
Abel into silence.

My flesh in tattered pieces
Clots red and cold and sticks
To the rough-hewn timber
That props up my limp, vertical carcase
Between heaven and earth.
My life drips and puddles
Below my feet,
As I gaze down dizzily
On merciless eyes and dagger teeth.

The chapter-and-versed wolves
Jeer and taunt me.
Their sheepwool clothing
Is stained black with the furious violence
Of their heart of stone.
They worship me in lip service,
But I confess,
I never knew them
(Though they are my creation).

My tongue tastes like ashes:
It sticks to the roof of my mouth.
I am so thirsty.
This famine is too much for me.
The bulls of Bashan have bled me white.
Papa, into your hands
I commend my Spirit.

The glory of the Lord filled the house of the Lord   Leave a comment

img_7343

This is from the blog Daily Meditation:

1Kings 8:11: so that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud, for the glory of the LORD filled the house of the LORD.

The cloud being described is the cloud of the glory of God. A clod carries the potential for rain. And what the cloud of the glory of God rain down are healing and prosperity. In the wilderness the children of Israel were constantly under the cloud of God’s glory, by day they were under the pillar of cloud and by night, under the pillar of fire, tangible manifestations of the presence of God (Exodus 13:21).

The result was felt in their body. They were able to make the journey through the wilderness without anyone among them in need of medical attention (Deuteronomy 29:1-6, Nehemiah 9:21, Psalm 105:37), God rained down manna for them which they ate for forty years. They were under God’s provision and physical preservation; even their cloths did not wear out all the years under the cloud of God’s glory.

When the glory comes in the tangible expression of God, it comes to change the order of things. In the focus verse an order got changed. Priests were unable to carry out their routine work in the temple. They were overwhelmed by the glory of God, because “flesh” can neither adequately serve God nor stand in his presence (Acts 17:24-25).

The prevalence of the glory of God in a special way in the church (also called the house of God) makes a major difference between the reality of the believers in the Old Testament and the new. In the old, the glory can only be viewed outside of man, while in the new the glory through Jesus is inside of us.

What we have in the focus verse was a foretaste of the New Testament where the glory of God resides in man (as the temple of God) and God will be doing his own work in us and through us. Paul said that he is an earthen vessel, but has in him the treasure of the glory of God (2Corinthians 4:6-7). We are the house of God and the glory of God is in us.

Jesus said that he has bestowed on us the glory that he has with the father at the beginning (John 17:22-23). The glory is the concentration of the presence and power of God in full essence. Moses asked God to show him his glory (Exodus 33:18-23), he wanted to experience his presence and power, but in the human condition such was impossible, that was why God said to him “no, you can’t see my full glory, it will kill you.”

It is said that no one can see God and live, but you ask: “what about those who say they are taken to heaven and see God. Are they all lairs?”

Not necessarily.

People can see God in his full glory (in this life) if that experience was not a bodily revelation, i.e. the experience is not physically (i.e. bodily) taken to heaven. But a revelation that involved their spirit being taken to the presence of God, you are see God, because your spirit has the perfection of God. But the body is still mortal.

Paul said that he had a revelation, in which he was taken to heaven, but he does not know whether it was in the body or out of it (2Corinthians 12:1-4), showing the two ways we can be taken to heaven. If he went to heaven and he could stand glory of God, then he went there in his spirit, otherwise he went there in his body and will need some form of protection from the full blaze of God’s glory there, as covered Moses with his hand.

But people can see Jesus either in body or out of body revelation experience, because after he became man, he had the eternal capacity to disguise his glory in the garb of human body, just like he did on earth. So don’t be quick to dismiss those who said they have seen Jesus in whatever form it is.

The cloud of glory brings the active presence of God to the people. Though we know that God is everywhere, his expression has been restricted since the sin of Adam in the Garden of Eden. But there is restoration in Jesus Christ.  Jesus said that where two or three of us are gathered together in his name, there he is in our midst, to manifest his glory (Matthew 18:20).

When Philip told Jesus: “show us the father,” he wanted to experience Him, but Jesus was disappointed, saying: “don’t you know that if you see me you have seen the father, I am in the father and the father is in me (John 14:6-11).”

The writer of the book of Hebrews says that Jesus is the full expression of the father (Hebrews 1:1-3); Paul said that Jesus is the fullness of the Godhead bodily (Colossians 2:9); there is no greater experience of God and his glory than the experience of Jesus.

He brought the way of God to us, communicating his truth and introducing us to his life. Christ in us is the hope of the glory of God, i.e. He brings to us all the possibilities of the glory of God (Colossians 1:27). When we take him (Christ) in, he releases the glory of God in doses in us, transforming us from inside out. That is what Paul described as moving from glory to glory (2Corinthians 3:17-18). That is the empowerment within, which is the “treasure earthen vessels (2Corinthians 4:6-7).”

We are vessels of his glory, which he communicates through our lives as we shine as light in this world (Matthew 5:13-16). Jesus said that we are the light of the world; a city set on a hill cannot be hid. He said that we should let our light so shine before men so that when they see our good work, works that show forth the glory of God, they will give glory to God, they will be drawn to Him.

The focus verse shows that the ideal situation is for the house of God to be filled with the glory of God. That also means that sometimes the house of God is filled with some other things other than the glory of God.

In the time of Jesus, he complained that the house of God which was supposed to be the house of prayer for all nations has been turned to the den of robbers (Luke 19:46).  It therefore seems that to get the house of God full of the glory of God, we need to take the route of prayer. This is because the house of God is to be both full of the glory of God and also be a house of prayer. Prayer is what we can do as humans and we can expect the glory of God to manifest as a result of that.

In the book of Acts, when the disciples were threatened by those who wanted them to stop preaching Jesus (Acts 4:1-33), they prayed, the power of the Holy Spirit shook the place where they were staying and they preached with more boldness in the name of Jesus, manifesting his glory. That means there is a relationship between prayer, the operation of the Holy Spirit and the manifestation of the power and presence of God, being the reality that the Holy Spirit brings, in the expression of the glory of God.

Jesus was not diplomatic when he made the whip and chased away those who do not have any business in the house of God. Jesus came with the mandate of heaven to clean the house of God; many are being called in the same way today, to restore the house of God to its glory.
