FOR  SOME  THE  LAST  GREAT  8TH  DAY  FEAST  ARRIVES  MUCH  EARLIER  THAN  FOR  OTHERS,  SO  I  PUT  THIS  MESSAGE  UP  NOW - Keith Hunt




LAST  GREAT  FEAST -  



8TH  DAY—— 2019



MANY  THINK  THOSE  IN  THE  SECOND  RESURRECTION  WILL  COME  UP  WITH  A  NEUTRAL  MIND,  KINDA  “WELL  I  AM  LIVING  AGAIN  BUT…..”——  NOT  KNOWING  ANYTHING  ABOUT  THE  PREVIOUS  LIFE.


THIS  SIMPLY  CANNOT  BE;  FOR  SALVATION  COMES  TO  EVERYONE  THE  SAME  WAY—- YOU  KNOW  YOU  HAVE  SINNED,  YOU  KNOW  YOU  WERE  NOT  PERFECT  IN  THOUGHT,  WORD,  AND  ACTIONS.  


THOSE  PEOPLE  WILL  KNOW  OR  COME  TO  UNDERSTAND  WHAT  SIN  IS;  HENCE  WILL  REMEMBER  SINS  THEY  DID.  THEY  WILL  NEED  TO  ACKNOWLEDGE  GOD’S  WORD;  ACKNOWLEDGE  THEY  ARE  SINNERS,  AND  WILL  NEED  TO  REPENT  AND  TAKE  JESUS  AS  THEIR  PERSONAL  SAVIOR.


AS  IT  WAS  FOR  EVERYONE  ALREADY  IN  THE  IMMORTAL  KINGDOM  OF  GOD,  SO  IT  WILL  BE  FOR  ALL  THOSE  IN  THE  SECOND  RESURRECTION.


EVERY  HUMAN  PERSON  WILL  AQUIRE  SALVATION  AND  THE  KINGDOM  OF  GOD,  THE  SAME  WAY.


THIS  IS  WHY  JESUS  COULD  GIVE  THE  FOLLOWING  EXAMPLES  TO  SHOW,  IT  WOULD  BE  EASIER  FOR  SOME  THAN  OTHERS  TO  ATAIN  SALVATION.


EVERYONE  IN  THAT  SECOND  RESURRECTION  WILL  KNOW  WHO  THEY  ARE  AND  WHAT  THEY  LIVED  LIKE,  THEY  WILL  BE  AS  IF  THEY  NEVER  DIED  A  PHYSICAL  DEATH.



Jesus Bemoans Three Cities But Gives Hope To Others



Still thinking along the same thoughts of how deceived and deluded most of the people were, Jesus zeros in on three cities He had openly taught in and done mighty miracles in, yet they had still not repented.


"Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you Bethsaida! For if the mighty works done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. But I tell you, it shall be more tolerable on the day of judgment for Tyre and Sidon than for you. And you, Capernaum, will you be exalted to heaven? Oh, no, you shall be brought down to hades (the grave). For if the mighty works done in you had been done in Sodom, it would have remained to this very day. But I tell you that it shall be more tolerable on the day of judgment for the land of Sodom than for you" (Matthew 11:20-24).


This section of Scripture is very important in noting the plan of salvation that God has for the world and for all peoples who have ever lived in all nations on the earth. Most people read right over this section and do not comprehend the importance of the words Jesus spoke.


He is speaking of a day called "THE judgment" or “THE day of judgment.” You will notice Jesus said it would be more TOLERABLE for some than others. This word "tolerable" means, to be tolerate towards, to be acceptable towards, to be allowable to people, to be fair, to be gracious towards. You will also note that some cities never saw the works of God, never really had a chance to repent, to come to know what sin was, what the laws of God were, what they were doing wrong, and to turn and repent of those sins. The cities Jesus bemoaned were cities that had been given and seen the might miracles of God and also had the truths of God proclaimed to them.


When we understand the plan of salvation that God has for all mankind, when we understand the meaning of the great Feasts of the Lord as recorded in Leviticus 23. When we understand that as Jesus later said, no one can come to the Father UNLESS the Spirit of God draws them, opens up their mind to the truths and the word of the Lord.


When we understand all people are blinded, as Paul would explain to the church at Rome in Romans chapters 9 through 11, that people cannot come under grace and salvation unless God removes that blindness through His Spirit, usually by the means of teaching and preaching from the human people God sends forth with His word (Romans 10:17-21). When we understand all these things, and that God will have mercy upon all that are in unbelief and blindness, but in His time frame (Romans 11:32), then we can understand what Jesus was saying here in Matthew chapter eleven.


The book of Revelation, in the 20th chapter, tells us there will one day, after the 1,000 year reign of Christ on this earth, come a time of a great general resurrection of all peoples. The books (Greek is "biblios" - where we get the word Bible from) will be opened, and the tree of life, will be available to them. They will see the word of the Lord, they will have salvation Offered to them, when in their first physical life they were blinded and had not seen the works of the Lord or heard the preaching of God's truths to them. It will be "tolerable" for them, mercy and a tolerate heart will be shown them. God will accept that they lived and died without knowing or even being given a chance to repent of their sins.


And Jesus says that at that time, in that judgment, when they do see the miracles and works and the words of the Lord, those blinded and yes sinful cities of old, will fast repent. Jesus knew their hearts and minds and attitudes deep within. He knew they were of such a mind, that when given in the future the works and words of God, they will readily repent. But, the mind and heart of some of the cities where Jesus did do the mighty works of God, and did preach the wonderful ways to salvation, were such, were so hardened, so stiff-necked (see again Romans 10:17-21), that they would be put to shame by the quick repentance of old sinful city people like that of Sodom, when they would come up in a resurrection on that judgment day, to be given the words of God and have the book of life opened to them.


Jesus continued to berate, castigate, take to task, the generation of people He was living among, with similar words that He had used earlier:


"The men of Nineveh will rise in THE judgment WITH THIS generation and shall condemn it; for they REPENTED at the preaching of Jonah, and behold, someone GREATER than Jonah is here among you. The Queen of the South will rise in THE judgment WITH THIS generation and shall condemn it; for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and behold, someone GREATER than Solomon is here among you" (Matt. 12:41-42).


Salvation per se was not given to the people of Nineveh, but when told by Jonah they had better mend their ways in this lifetime or their city, with them in it, was doomed for destruction, they DID REPENT of their wrong ways and mindset. Yet, the people in the main, and the religious leaders, would not repent of their errors and sins, when Jesus, God in the flesh, much greater than Jonah, was among them telling them to repent. The Queen of the South, was not given salvation per se, yet she came all the way from afar to hear what God was doing through Solomon. But those right next door to Jesus would not come to Him for salvation and repentance that He was offering. And He was much greater than Solomon.


When all these people of old come up in THE judgment resurrection (mentioned at the end of Revelation chapter 20) along with most of that generation of people Jesus was living among, the ones of old, because of their "human attitude" (something that is often just human and not even God led through the Holy Spirit) it will be easier to entreat and work with them and lead them to salvation, relatively speaking; than the ones of Jesus' time, who saw and heard Him in the flesh. They will be ashamed and condemned. They will still find it hard to repent, compared to the ones Jesus gave in His two examples.


THERE  ARE  MANY  EXAMPLES  THAT  COULD  BE  GIVEN;  I  HAVE  CHOSEN  THIS  TIME  THE  AMERICAN  CIVIL  WAR!


FROM the  DVDs:  AMERICA - The Story of Us


NORTH  AGAINST  SOUTH - BROTHER  AGAINST  BROTHER!


THE CIVIL  WAR  OF  AMERICA  WAS  ONE  OF  THE  BLOODIEST  WARS  IN  HISTORY!


VICTORY  WILL  TAKE  FAR  MORE  THAN  BRUTE  FIRE  POWER  ON  THE  BATTLE-FIELD.


TECHNOLOGY - COMMUNICATIONS - LOGISTICS - IT’S  WHAT  HAPPENS  BEHIND  THE  FRONT  LINE  THAT  WILL  DETERMINE  THE  FUTURE  OF  AMERICA.


1862 - THE  CIVIL  WAR  IS  AT  ITS  HEIGHT.  NORTH  AND  SOUTH  LOCKED  IN  A  BITTER  CONFLICT  TO  DETERMINE  WHAT  WILL  HAPPEN  IN  AMERICA.


A  NEW  TYPE  OF  BULLET  HAS  BROUGHT  THIS  WAR  TO  A  TERRIBLE  DEADLOCK.  BRINGING  A  DEATH  ON  THE  SCENE  THAT  HAS  NEVER  BEFORE  BEEN  SEEN  IN  WARFARE.


HERE  IN  A  METAL  WORKS  IN  SPRINGFIELD,  MOLTEN  LEAD  IS  BEGINNING  ITS  JOURNEY,  TO  BECOME  A  LETHAL  INSTRUMENT  FOR  DESTRUCTION.


THE  BULLET  KNOWN  AS  THE  MINI-BALL;  THIS  CRUID  PIECE  OF  LEAD  IS  THE  REASON  FOR  ALL  THE  DEAD  IN  THIS  WAR.


INVENTED  IN   FRANCE -  AN  OUNCE  IN  WEIGHT  AND  1/2  AN  INCH  ACROSS.


ONE  PERSON  CAN  CAST  3,000  MINI-BALLS  AN  HOUR.


EACH  ONE  OF  THESE  CRUID  BULLETS  CAN  RIP  THROUGH  A  MAN’S  BODY  IN  SECONDS.


THE  MINI-BALL  IS  USED  BY  NORTH  AND  SOUTH  ALIKE.


DEMAN  FOR  THIS  KILLER  BULLET  RUNS  SO  HIGH,  AN  ENTIRE  INDUSTRY  SPRINGS  UP  SUPPLYING  MINI-BALLS  TO  THE  FRONT  LINE.


THE  NORTH  MAKES  OVER  1/2  A  BILLION  MINI-BALLS  TO  BE  FIRED  BY  2  MILLION  MUSKETS  IT  SUPPLIES  TO  ITS  MEN.

IT  WILL  TAKE  OVER  33  HOURS  FOR  A  BULLET  IN  A  BOX  TO  TRAVEL  THE  800  PLUS  MILES  TO  THE  BATTLEFIELD  AND  ITS  TARGET.


AND  THE  NEW  MUSKET  IS  MUCH  FASTER  TO  RELOAD  THAN  TRADITIONAL  WEAPONS.  LOAD  THE  GUN-POWDER,  RAM  DOWN  THE  BULLET,  AND  IT’S  READY  TO  FIRE.

GROOVES  ON  THE  INSIDE  OF  THE  BARREL  SPIN  THE  BALL  TOWARDS  ITS  TAGET,  THE  IMPROVED  ACCURACY  AND  RANGE  ARE  A  DEALY  COMBINATION.

“YOU  DON’T  WANT  TO  KNOW  WHAT  A  SOFT  METAL  MUSKET  BALL  DOES  WHEN  IT  ENTERS  THE  HUMAN  BODY” - BRIAN  WILLIAMS.


ON  IMPACT  THE  BULLET  FLATTENS  OUT,  BONE  SHATTERS  AND  SPLINTERS,  CAUSING  FURTHER  DAMAGE  TO  MUSCLE  AND  TISSUE.


MORE  OFTEN  THAN  NOT  A  DIRECT  HIT  IS  DEATH.


BUT  FOR  ALL  THE  MINI-BALL’S  TECHNOLOGY  AND  EDGE,  THE  ARMY  STILL  USED  TRADITIONAL  MILITARY  TACTICS.  SO  THE  DEATH  RATE  WAS  TRULY  APPALLING.    TROOPS  STILL  FACED  ONE  ANOTHER  IN  LINES  ACROSS  THE  BATTLE-FIELD.


BUT  THE  MINI-BALL  IS  ACCURATE  OVER  A  RANGE  OF  600  YARDS.  EASILY  SPANNING  THE  DISTANCE  OF  FIGHTING  LINES  AND  IT  CAN  BE  RELOADED  8  TIMES  FASTER  THAN  A  TRADITIONAL  WEAPON.


THE  EFFECT  ARE  CATASTROPHIC !


THE  KILL  RATE  INCREASES  DRAMATICALLY   IN  COMPARISON  TO  PREVIOUS  WARS.


ACROSS  THE  BATTLEFIELD  IS  CARNAGE  AND  DEATH  ON  A SCALE  PREVIOUSLY  UNSEEN.


QUOTE:


“THEY  KILLED  EACH  OTHER  IN  DROVES,  IN  LINES  AND  IN  PILES” - BRIAN  WILLIAMS.


SOLDIER  ALEXANDER  HUNTER  WRITES:  “ONE  LAY  ON  HIS  FACE,  WITH  HIS  BODY  NEARLY  IN  TWO  PARTS.  ANOTHER  WAS  SHOT  JUST  AS  HE  WAS  TAKING  AIM,  ONE  EYE  WAS  STILL  OPEN  AND  THE  OTHER  CLOSED;  AND  ONE  ARM  EXTENDED  AS  HOLDING  HIS  RIFLE,  WHICH  LAY  BESIDE  HIM,  ON  THE  GROUND.”


TROOPS  ON  BOTH  SIDES  MUST  LIVE  IN  AND  AMONG  THIS  UNTOLD  SUFFERING.


HORATIO  CHAPMAN  RECORDS  IN  HIS  DIARY: “THE  DEAD  IN  SOME  PLACES  WERE  PILED  UPON  EACH  OTHER;  AND  GROANS  AND  MOANS  OF  THE  INJURED  WERE  SAD  TO  HEAR;  JUST  ALIVE  BUT  GASPING,  UN-CONSCIOUS.  OTHERS  MORTALLY  WOUNDED  BUT  WITH  THE  FACT  THEY  KNEW  THEY  COULD  NOT  LIVE  LONG.”


WITH  THE  NORTH’S  FINAL  VICTORY  OVER  600,000  ON  BOTH  SIDES  WERE  DEAD,  SOME  2  PERCENT  OF  THE  ENTIRE  USA  POPULATION.


IN  CURRENT  POPULATION  TERMS  THAT’S  THE  EQUIVALENT  OF  6  MILLION  PEOPLE!


ALMOST  HALF  OF  THE  DEAD  REMAIN  UNIDENTIFIED.


BEING  SO  LEADS  MEN  TO  PIN  THEIR  NAMES  ON  THEIR  UNIFORMS.


CRUID  EARLY  VERSION  OF  THE  DOG-TAGS - BUT  THEY  CAN  BE  IDENTIFIED  IF  KILLED.


THE  USA  POSTAL  SERVICE  GAVE  SOLDIERS  THE  ABILITY  TO  WRITE  TO  LOVED  ONES.


ROBERT  STYLES— “THE  SIGHT  AND  SMELL  THAT  ASSAILED  US  WERE  SIMPLY  INDESCRIBABLE.  CORPSES  SWOLLEN  TO  TWICE  THEIR  ORIGINAL  SIZE;  SOME  OF  THEM  ACTUALLY  BURST  ASUNDER,  FROM  PRESSURE  OF  FOUL  GASES  AND  VAPOR.”


FUELLING  THE  CARNAGE  LIES  THE  DEEPER  ANIMOSITY  THAT  LED  TO  THE  WAR.  IN  A  BITTER  CONFLICT  THAT  HAS  PITTED  BROTHER  AGAINST  BROTHER,  THE  SOUTH  HAS  DETERMINED  TO  KEEP  ITS  INDEPENDENCE  AND  SYSTEM  OF  SLAVERY.


BUT  THE  NORTH  WILL  NOT  ALLOW  IT  TO  LEAVE  THE  UNION  OF  STATES.


COTTEN,  WHITE  GOLD,  WAS  A  MASSIVE  INDUSTRY  IN  THE  SOUTH,  AND  MAINLY  DEPENDED  ON  BLACKS  TO  WORK  IN  THE  COTTEN  FIELDS.


TWO-THIRDS  OF  THE  WORLD’S  COTTEN  WAS  FROM  THE  SOUTHERN  STATES  OF  AMERICA.


IT  BROUGHT  EXTRA-ORDINARY  WEALTH  TO  THE  SOUTHER  STATES,  BUT  IT  IS  WEALTH  ROUGHT  ON  THE  BACK  OF  SLAVES.


NOW  THIS  WEALTH  AND  TRADITIONAL  WAY  OF  LIFE  IS  THREATENED  BY  THE  BALLOT  BOX,  AND  LINCOLN  IS  PRESIDENT.


THE  SOUTH  WANTS  INDEPENDENCE  AND  SO  WILL  FIGHT—— HENCE  THE  BLOODIEST  WAR  EVER  IN  USA  HISTORY.


…………………………


THESE  DEAD  SOLDIERS  MAY  VERY  WELL  COME  UP  IN  THE  SECOND  RESURRECTION  WHERE  THEY  FELL  IN  BATTLE,  WITH  ALL  THE  CARNAGE  AND  SMELL  AROUND  THEM.


THEY  COME  UP  WITH  ALL  THEIR  SAME  MIND,  HOWEVER  INFLUENCED,  TWISTED  AND  BENT.


THEY  WILL  HAVE  TO  BE  TAUGHT  WHY  THAT  WAR  CAME  ABOUT;  THEY  WILL  HAVE  TO  LEARN  IT  WAS  FROM  SIN  AND  GREED  AND  PROUDNESS,  AND  DECEPTIVE  IDEAS.


THEY  WILL  HAVE  TO  FORGIVE  EACH  THEIR  ONE  TIME  ENEMY.  THEY  WILL  HAVE  TO  LOVE  EACH  OTHER.


THEY  WILL  AS  ALL  HUMANS  OFFERED  SALVATION  HAVE  TO  DO—— ADMIT  WHAT  IS  SIN,  ADMIT  THEY  WERE  SINNERS,  REPENT  OF  ALL  THEIR  WRONG  THOUGHTS,  WORDS,  AND  ACTIONS  IN  THEIR  LIFETIME.


THEY  WILL  HAVE  TO  HUMBLE  THEMSELVES,  AND  THEY  WILL  HAVE  TO  TAKE  CHRIST  JESUS  AS  THEIR  PERSONAL  SAVIOR.


THAT IS  THE  NITTY-GRITTY  OF  THE  SECOND  RESURRECTION,  THAT  MOST  OF  YOU  NEVER  THOUGHT  ABOUT,  AND  WERE  NEVER  TAUGHT.


TIME  TO  REALLY  MEDITATE  ON  THE  DEPTH  OF  THE  SECOND  RESURRECTION.
