Sweet Sunday Sermon – The VINDICATIVE ASCENSION of Christ

This year, the Ascension is this year  celebrated today, May 21st.

As  a teenager I was taught that the Doctrine of Christ could be summarized   by   the  7 VEES below.

His VIRGIN BIRTH

His VIRTUOUS LIFE

His VICARIOUS DEATH

His VICTORIOUS RESURRECTION

His VINDICATIVE ASCENSION

His VITAL SESSION

His VISIBLE RETURN 

A few years back, at our assembly, the annual summer series followed an extended version of this outline thus.

1-.His VIRGIN BIRTH

2.His VIRTUOUS LIFE..1 HIS VEILED DEITY,

3-His VIRTUOUS LIFE..2 HIS VALIANT WALK  highlighting his WORKS (apart from His cross work)

4.His VIRTUOUS LIFE..3 HIS VENERABLE TEACHINGS highlighting  his WORDS

5 His VICARIOUS DEATH- highlighting the prophecies & fulfillment of his death as taught in the Gospels

6. His VICARIOUS DEATH- highlighting the consequences, benefits   importance of his death as taught in the Epistles & Revelation

7. His VICTORIOUS RESURRECTION highlighting the prophecies & fulfillment as taught in the Gospels

8.His VICTORIOUS RESURRECTION highlighting the prophecies & fulfillment as taught in the Epistles & Revelation

9.His VINDICATIVE ASCENSION The account of the Ascension i.e detailing how this historic event is confirmed, by prophecy, by the anticipation of Christ,by the historic record of the ascension, and by the allusions in the epistles to the ascension as a fact.

10.His VITAL SESSION- The significance and importance and consequences of the Ascension, his current intercessory work

11.His VISIBLE RETURN…1The Rapture of the Church
12 His VISIBLE RETURN..2 The Battle of Armageddon  (a lot is said about this, but few know about it)

13.His VISIBLE RETURN 3The Second Coming of Christ……need to explain how this differs from the rapture in its timing, purpose, result etc
14.His VISIBLE RETURN 4 The Binding of Satan, judging of nations & The Millennial Kingdom of Christ

I  hope that you will enjoy the PowerPoint I  prepared to teach the section that I was assigned- The VINDICATIVE ASCENSION  of Christ

The first slide pictures the stained glass window above the altar at Christ Church Parish Church, which is still one of my favourite  places in the world- ever!

  • No one could possibly have been taught any of this Shiite. Made to believe is a more appropriate terminology.

    These are only a few of the lies of the Piscean Age – better known as the Age of Deception.

    Being taught, on the other hand is about knowing, not believing. When one knows a thing that thing can be proven independent of propaganda dogmas. There’s no requirement for belief.

    None of these magical claims made can be proven from independent sources.

    More precisely, there was never anybody on this earth called Jesus Christ.

    Thankfully, we are now in the Aquarian Age where information rules. It does not require belief, everyone can now know for themselves.

    Therefore, ignorant people and their criminal priests are out of bogue. The churches are dying everywhere!

    TAUGHT IN GOOD SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASSES IN GOOD LOCAL BIBLE BELIEVING CHURCHES ALL OVER THE WORLD, AND IN PROPER BIBLE SCHOOLS AND SEMINARIES

    I CERTAINLY DIDNT LEARN IT BY OSMOSIS OR FACILITATED DIFFUSION OR ENDOCYTOSIS

    RE Being taught, on the other hand is about knowing, not believing. When one knows a thing that thing can be proven independent of propaganda dogmas. There’s no requirement for belief.

    THE THINGS THAT ONE IS TAUGHT AND KNOWS ARE THINGS THAT THEY BELIEVE AND HAVE FOUND TO BE TRUE, OH THOU SON OF BELIAL. ASK SATAN YOUR DADDY.

    HE BELIEVES ALL THESE THINGS ASK HIM. IT IS WRITTEN THUS ABOUT HIM IN James 2:19
    Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

    RE Thankfully, we are now in the Aquarian Age where information rules. It does not require belief, everyone can now know for themselves.
    YES INDEED JUST LIKE HOW EVERYONE KNOWS EVERYTHING ABOUT COVID 19

    SO INFORMATION RULES IN THIS AGE, RIGHT? IS THIS NOT WHAT DANIEL PREDICTED IN DANIEL 12;4 LONG, LONG AGO?
    But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.

    RE there was never anybody on this earth called Jesus Christ.
    TELL HIM THAT WHEN YOU SEE HIM, CAUSE HE IS COMING TO EARTH SOON AGAIN

    1 Jesus is coming to earth again– What if it were today?
    Coming in power and love to reign–What if it were today?
    Coming to claim His chosen Bride, All the redeemed and purified,
    Over this whole earth scattered wide–What if it were today?
    Chorus:
    Glory, glory! Joy to my heart ’twill bring;
    Glory, glory! When we shall crown Him King.
    Glory, glory! Haste to prepare the way;
    Glory, glory! Jesus will come someday.

    2 Satan’s dominion will then be o’er–O that it were today!
    Sorrow and sighing shall be no more–O that it were today!
    Then shall the dead in Christ arise, Caught up to meet Him in the skies;
    When shall these glories meet our eyes? What if it were today?[Chorus]

    3 Faithful and true would He find us here If He should come today?
    Watching in gladness and not in fear, If He should come today?
    Signs of His coming multiply, Morning light breaks in eastern sky;
    Watch, for the time is drawing nigh– What if it were today?[Chorus]

  • @ Doc GP the mock doctor of divinity:
    “This year, the Ascension is this year celebrated today, May 21st.”
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Why does this ‘date’ vary from year to year?

    If the man was taken up to the Sun on the Thursday 21st May of 34 AD why not keep that date, May 21st, each year just like his birthday December 25th?

    How do you explain this ‘pagan’ variation in the man’s death and his ascension to heaven on the rays of the Sun?

    No!

    He also asked one of his many begotten sons to ask you which of one his twelve (all male) disciples your Jesus confided in when he was being tempted by HIM in the wilderness for 40 days and 40 nights.

    To whom did your Jesus reveal that intimate conversation between my daddy and your sweet-looking friend born of a virgin and returned in tact?

    Unless you are prepared to accept that ‘MY DADDY’ had a ‘sinister’ hand in writing the fable as contained in the gospels (except John).

  • DR.GP, WE KNOW THEIR PHILOSOPHY IT IS JUST HIDDEN IN THIS NEW AGE TALK BUT THEIR PHILOSOPHY HAS BEEN AROUND FOR LONG TIME

    There are some that want to Bypass that and Act Like the People of Babel thinking that with the Bricks that they Fashion and with the Glue of the Mortar they can Reach to Heaven and Overthrow God.

    But it is only in their Vein Imagination of their Bricks of Collectivism and their Mortar of Sweet Sounding Words of FREENESS they think that they can Overthrow God who Said By the Sweat of thy Brow, there is Nothing that we Achieve or Understand Unless we Work for it. They may say that we do not have to work for it, we can Get Gain without work and they’ll be doing what Cain did, when he Appropriated his Brothers Good. Their Philosophy is the Antithesis of Freedom it is the Antithesis of Thinking, it is One of Tyranny and Force to Impose your Will on others, and to Extract their Possessions. Telling Everyone that when you take from them you are making them Equal and that you are Writing the Wrongs and you believe All men are Equal, Except Some are more Equal than others.

    Freedom grew up in the world just like you, I came and found it but I had something that everybody else had, the ability to Choose and could have chosen any which way to go including any Ideology to follow and recognised this early in life. I also recognised that you could lose yourself along these paths and encountered many people who had and recognised that that road was not for me as we all do.

    We end up Choosing the Road we want to travel. Moreover, we all think we are making the Right Choice but there was this book that was from way back and when I saw it as the Wisdom of the Ancients I strove to Understand what was contained therein and learnt many things and it helped me from making Wrong Choice. In addition, I recognised that people who read the book and people who do not, still make wrong choices. By in large people who follow the teachings in the book are better people than those who don’t and that fact gave encouragement.

    They are many Esoteric and Weird Dogmas out there, in order to understand those Strange Philosophies or get caught in any of their side roads it is better to be Grounded first in the Wisdom of the Ancients before looking in the side roads. There may be some worth in the things you think, but I never want to be in the Position of Straining Gnats and Swallowing Camels.

    THE KEY TO GAINING UNDERSTANDING IS TO ASK GOD THE CREATOR OF US ALL, WHATEVER YOU WANT TO KNOW…

    James 1:6-8

    6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.

    7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.

    8 A double-minded man is unstable in all his ways.

  • If the above ignorance was not the standard bovine excreta maybe there would have been an understanding as to where the Piso family of popes copied that quote from, almost word for word.

    It certainly wasn’t from any man called Matthew, who NEVER existed. Only in the fertile minds of the fiction-writing popes Piso could Matthew have existed,

  • When I attended medical school, I was taught to listen to hearts.
    First, you listen for the two heart sounds, then you listen to other sounds, and then you listen for murmurs.
    I began to study the Bible concomitantly with my studies since age 16, and I still do so.
    I have taught Bible in several countries, including in Bible Conferences.
    At all these centers the emphasis has always been on its :heart sounds”, never on ” other sounds” or on “murmurs.”
    I have never in the last 52 years anywhere, heard the rubbish that I have read written on BU about God’s Word.

    I tend not to get too embroiled in the politics and the other stuff that is spewed on BU, DAY IN AND DAY OUT, AND PERENNIALLY TOO. iF SATAN’S SLIME AND SCUM HATE THE WORD OF GOD, THEY SHOULD LEAVE IT ALONE. AND WAIT FOR THEIR REWARD, WHICH IS SURE. FOR IT IS WRITTEN CLEARLY IN ROMANS 3………..THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH.

    I AM QUITE HAPPY TO SEE FEW OR NO COMMENTS TO THESE SUNDAY SERMONS, BECAUSE I KNOW THAT Isaiah 55:11 IS TRUE …………So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

    BUT IT IS RIDICULOUS THE THINGS THAT IS WRITTEN HERE BY SATAN’S SLIMEY SCUM.

    I DONT STOP SATAN’S SLIMEY SCUM. FROM BELIEVING WHAT THEY BELIEVE,

    I BELIEVE AND SEEK TO PRACTICE THE INJUNCTIONS OF 2 TIMOTHY 2:15 , 16 & 23

    5 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

    16 But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.

    23 But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes.

  • 11 Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.

    12 Though a sinner do evil an hundred times, and his days be prolonged, yet surely I know that it shall be well with them that fear God, which fear before him:

    13 But it shall not be well with the wicked, neither shall he prolong his days, which are as a shadow; because he feareth not before God.

  • i Corinthians 1:17- 29 is most pertinent here

    17 For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.

    18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

    19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.

    20 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?

    21 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.

    22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:

    23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;

    24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

    25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

    26 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:

    27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;

    28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:

    29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.

    And so is Romans 1:22-32

    22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

    23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

    24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

    25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

    26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

    27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

    28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

    29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

    30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

    31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

    32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

  • Let the sons of Satan, the deceiver ponder these passages

    1 John 4:1-3
    4 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
    2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:
    3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
    2 Thessalonians 2:3-12
    3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
    4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
    5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
    6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
    7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
    8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
    9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
    10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
    11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
    12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

    John 3:17-21
    17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
    18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
    19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
    20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
    21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

    That makes all Jews and their friends (like your dear buddy Uncle Trump) antichrists also, not so?

    We have a problem Houston! Dr. GP has escaped from the asylum for religious nutters carrying a book of fairy tales on the Jewish Sabbath.

    What should we do with this nutcase? Let him run amok and have his fun on the day dedicated to Saturnalia and then capture him on the real Lord’s Day Sunday?

    Dr. GP, you are just another spiritually inchoate child not yet Biblically tutored according to the Order of Melchizedek.

    You are still saddled with the infantile fascination with and brainwashing from fairy tales equivalent to Mother Goose and the commercial addiction to Santa Claus.

    Why don’t you just return to your first level of spiritual enlightening through your regular attendance in Sunday school classes in puerile propaganda of Adam & Eve and ‘la Sagrada Família’?
