The Missing Cross to Purity


In the Faith


For Those In the Faith, Here is What is New on the Site

The messages from the Word of the Lord within on this site are provided to help you gauge the truth of the words you hear spoken to you, to correct the many errors of the deficit sects' doctrines, to encourage you, to caution you, to help you understand the true promises of the Bible, the true restrictions, the true hope, true belief, true faith, and true way to attain the promises. However, the messages published on this site are dead words, without life; whereas words that you hear Him speak to you are words with life and resulting power. Regarding the similar dead words, (without life), that you read in the Bible, the Lord has spoken this advice: "When you have heard the dead words in the Bible and recall them, heed what is said; always obedient to His commands." Does that mean you should disregard any commands from Him that you read?—no, just like the many commands you read in the Bible, you should try to follow them; but as long as you don't deliberately violate a command, should you slip and fail, you should only regret your lack of ability and not feel condemned. The commands you have heard Him speak to you come with the power to obey, providing you do your best to comply.

The words you hear may not be exact duplicates of the words in the Bible or of these messages, but every message you hear from Him will be compatible with the true meaning of the words of the Bible, as well as compatible with the messages on this site. Every message you hear is like receiving a piece to a puzzle, each word fitting together, filling the gaps in your understanding, until you finally see and feel the brilliant truth and wondrous beauty of the scriptures' promises, salvation, and righteousness — the unfathomable depth of God's love to crown his creation in restoring man to sanctity and holiness in union with Himself through Christ.

New Messages from the Word of the Lord within:

Bible Changes

  • The first verse of Psalm 23 has been changed to be the following:

    The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not lack anything needed.
    This verse previously read: The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want.
    (08/22/19)

  • The footnotes in several Bible chapters, (and also several pages of the site), that warn you before you can distinguish His voice, to only follow commands from the Lord to repent of your behaviors you understand to be wrong, have the following additional text.

    You may hear the Lord tell you to go ahead with your considering to buy something or do something that you feel is necessary; and providing it is nothing that you know to be wrong, or it is nothing He has told you not to do in the past, you can follow His suggestions before you can distinguish His voice. If you don't need what you are considering to purchase, He may plainly tell you, "you don't need it." If it is not necessary to do something you are considering, He may tell you, "it's not necessary." If it is necessary and/or needed, he may encourage you to proceed.

    (08/21/19)

  • Mathew 25:40 has new commentary as follows:

    34 Then the King will say to those on his right hand, 'Come, you blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.
    35 For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you took me in.
    36 I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.
    37 Then the righteous will answer him, saying, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you? Or thirsty and gave you drink?
    38 When did we see you as a stranger and take you in? Or naked and clothe you?
    39 Or when did we see you sick or in prison, and come to you?'
    40 And the King will answer and say to them, 'Truly I say to you that as you have done so to one of the least of these my brothers, you have done so to me.'
    (08/14/19)

  • Revelation 2:9 has an expanded footnote as follows:

    I know your works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but you are rich) and I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews, and are not, but are of the synagogue of Satan.

    4 A true Christian is an inward Jew, his heart having been circumcised, putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ. Those who claim to be Christians, but who have not had their hearts circumcised by the Spirit, speak blasphemy calling themselves Christians. These are the false Christians of Babylon, worshiping in a form, without the power of God to free them from sin by cutting off the flesh of their hearts; their churches are synagogues of Satan. Throughout his writings, Kingdom-dwelling George Fox identified churches of those who professed Christ, but did not possess Christ, (those without a circumcised heart), as synagogues of Satan; Fox even has a letter devoted to identifying them as synagogues of Satan.

Web Page Changes

  • The following has been added to the web page on Middle Age Persecutions, which was taken from Saint(¿) Thomas Aquinas' writing on, "The Treatment of Heretics."
    Thomas Aquinas

     

    A. REGULATIONS OF THE SYNOD OF TOULOUSE
    CONCERNING THE INQUISITION, 1229

    1. BISHOPS must bind under oath when necessary in each parish, within and outside a city, a priest and two or more lay people of good reputation to diligently, faithfully, and often search out heretics in their parishes, individual suspicious houses, subterranean rooms and additions to houses, and other hiding places. If they discover a heretic, follower, patron, or protector of heretics, they must, taking precaution that they do not escape, quickly notify the bishop and mayor of the place or his bailiff so they will be duly punished (command of the episcopal inquisition according to the practice of the synods of Verona, Bourges, Narbonne, and the twelfth general synod).

    2. Exempt abbots, who are not subject to episcopal jurisdiction, must act in the same way as the bishops.

    3. The governors of the respective districts should order diligent search of country residences, houses, and forests for heretics and destroy their hiding places.

    4. Whoever, allowing a heretic to stay on his property either for money or any other cause, if he confesses or is convicted, loses his property forever and his body is handed over to the civil authority for punishment.

        [The punishment for being judged a heretic was death; as saintly(?) Thomas also said, then "deliver him to the secular tribunal to be exterminated thereby from the world by death."]

    5. He also is subject to legal punishment whose property, although without his knowledge but by negligence, has become an abode of heretics.

    6. The house where a heretic is found must be torn down and the property must be confiscated.

    7. The bailiff who lives in a suspicious place and is not diligent in searching for heretics loses his office and is not permitted to be employed either there or in any other place.

    8. In order to prevent an innocent person from being punished or slanderously accused of heresy we command that no one shall be punished as a heretic or follower of heresy before he is so declared by a bishop or other clerical persons.

    9. All are permitted to search for heretics in others' territories, and the bailiffs must help them. The king can, accordingly, search for heretics in the territory of the count of Toulouse, and the count of Toulouse in the king's land.

    10. If one who is tainted with heresy voluntarily gives up the heresy he is not allowed to remain in the house where he formerly lived in case the house was under suspicion of heresy. He must be moved into a Catholic house which is free from suspicion. Besides, he must wear two crosses on his coat; the one on the right and the other on the left, and of a different color from his coat. Such persons cannot hold public office or be admitted to legal actions unless they are fully re-instated after due penance by the pope or his legate.

    11. Whoever has involuntarily returned to the Church, through fear of death or for any other reason, must be imprisoned by the bishop so he can perform his penance and not be able to seduce others. Whoever retains his property must, by order of the prelate, provide for his own necessities. If he possesses nothing, then the prelate must provide for him.

    12. All members of a parish must vow to the bishop under oath that they will preserve the Catholic faith and will persecute heretics according to their power. This oath must be renewed every two years.

    13. Males and females who have attained the use of reason must confess their sins to a priest three times a year, or with their priest's permission to another priest. They must perform the imposed penances humbly and according to their strength and receive the holy sacrament of the Eucharist three times a year. Whoever does not do this is under suspicion of being a heretic.

    14. Lay people are not permitted to possess the books of the Old and New Testament, only the Psalter, Breviary, or the Little Office of the Blessed Virgin, and these books not in the vernacular language.

    15. Whoever is accused of heresy or is only suspected of heresy is not permitted to practice his profession as a doctor. When a sick person has received Holy Communion from his priest, he must be careful that no heretic or one suspected of heresy visit him, for terrible things have already happened through such visits. . . .

    16. No prelate, baron or other superiors shall entrust the office of bailiff or steward to any heretic or follower of heresy, nor keep in his service one who has been condemned or suspected of heresy.

    17. He is accused of heresy or is suspected of heresy, whoever has been legally proved by good and honorable people before a bishop of having a bad reputation. ...

        [And whoever was proved to have a bad reputation was sent to the Inquisition examiners (torturers), where under unimaginable pain, most confessed something to the torturers who, as saintly(?) Thomas also said, then "delivers him to the secular tribunal to be exterminated thereby from the world by death." Most of those who didn't confess, died in torture.]

    18. Women who own castles or fortresses are not permitted to marry enemies of the faith and the peace. ...

    19. Whoever is too poor to employ a lawyer has to be provided with one if necessary by the curia.

    20. Pastors must explain these regulations to their parishioners four times a year.

    The Catholics' ruthless methods of finding heretics make the Nazis look like amateurs.

  • The following has been added to the web page, What to Teach Your Children:

    Communicate the essence of following writing by George Fox to your young children:

    "And the Lord said to Jeremiah 1:5, ‘Before I formed you in the belly, I knew you; and before you came out of the womb, I sanctified you.’ And so here all may see, and consider, and know themselves to be the great work of God; that when God that forms and fashions you in the womb, and brings to birth, and has brought you forth, that you may choose the good and forsake the evil; that you may remember and consider, that you are the work of the Lord, and remember your Creator, and who has fashioned you and formed you in the womb, and has brought you to a birth, and has brought you forth to fear, and serve, and worship, and honor him that has made you, and brought you forth. For as Solomon said in Eccl 12:1, ‘Remember now your Creator in the days of your youth, while the evil days come not, or before the evil days do come.Now this is the duty of all youth, let them be males or females, to remember their Creator, and let him not go out of their memory, so that they may be fitted to stand in the evil days when they come; for when they grow up to be young men, then the evil days will appear, in which they may be tempted to ‘adultery, fornication, drunkenness, theft, murder, lying, cozening, cheating, unrighteousness, ungodliness, lightness, wantonness, pleasures,’ and other evils, by which they may forget their Creator by going into such evils, when they are tempted to such things. The evil days come to try youth, for those who yield to such evils before mentioned, forget their Creator, and forsake him; for Solomon said, ‘Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.’ Pro 22:6. Here is the duty of parents, and the duty of children, which is to be practiced and followed. Now here is the duty of youth, ‘to remember his Creator in the days of his youth, before the evil days come.’ But what must we do when we come to be young men? What is their means and duty? David declared in Psalm 119:9, ‘How shall a young man cleanse his ways? By taking heed to and watching for your word, .. I have retained your word [spoken commands] in my heart, and I will meditate on your precepts, that I might not sin against you.’ So now, for all young men to take heed to the word of God in their hearts, and hide [retain] it in their hearts, and to meditate upon it; for the word is called a hammer, and a sword, and a fire, to hammer down, and cut down, and burn up that which would defile them in their ways, words, and hearts.

    And the apostle said, ‘that the word of faith which he preached, was in their hearts and mouths, to obey it, and to do it.’ Rom 10:8,17. And ‘the engrafted word was able to save their souls,’ James said. And Peter said, ‘that they were to feed upon the sincere milk of the word;' but they which are hearers of the word, and not doers of the word, deceive their own souls.' James 1:22. And Christ said to his disciples, ‘Now you are clean through the word [which I have spoken unto you.’ So this word will keep the ways and the hearts of young men clean, the word of God, which is a sanctifying word, a reconciling word; and Christ told the Jews, his word had no place in them.

    And again, he told the unclean Jews, ‘You do not have his word (namely, the word of God) abiding in you. John 5:38.’ So these Jews made a great profession of the scriptures, but did not have the word of God abiding in them; so they were not likely to be made clean by it.

    And Christ said, ‘Sanctify them through your word, your word is truth.’ (Namely, his disciples and believers.) And again Christ said, ‘I have given them, (namely, his disciples), your word, and they have kept your word,’ ( namely, the word of God). John 17:17, 17,8.

    Now here you may see the disciples kept the word of God, which was the means to keep their hearts, ways, and words clean; but the Jews, priests, Scribes and Pharisees, that made a great outward profession of the scriptures, whose ways were unclean, and mouths full of foul unclean words against Christ, Christ told them, ‘that the word of God did not abide in them.’ And therefore, though they had the scriptures, and made an outward profession of them, like the professors of our age, and others who go from the means, the word of God in their hearts, to keep their ways and lips clean, and to sanctify them; therefore they plead for a body of death to the grave, and a purgatory when they are dead, who live in a profession of the letter without the word.

    And John said, ‘I have written unto you young men, because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you; and you have overcome the wicked one,’ namely, the devil, by the word of God, which was before the devil was. So here you may see, what is the means by which the young men's ways are cleansed and sanctified, and what makes them strong, and to overcome the wicked one—the word of God abiding in them. And therefore, every young man, and all young people are to love, and obey, and do the word of God, by which their ways, words, and hearts, and all may be kept clean; for the word of God is a hammer and a sword, to hammer down, and cut down the devil and his works, and a fire to burn them up. So it is the word of power, the word of wisdom, the word of reconciliation, and the word of patience, by which they overcome.
