Strange Fire


ACTS Magazine

July 2012





Nadab and Abihu died, when they offered strange fire before the LORD, Numbers 26:61.

First, let me say, “It is not my intent to offend anyone.”  However, that being said, I think that it is very important that the Saints of God “YHWH’ that have been Saved in, through and by the Precious Shed Blood of Jesus, His Only Begotten Son, should be advised that there is a very good possibility that some that call themselves Christians may in fact be doing things that could be construed as “Offering Strange Fire.”

There is a lot of talk about the wickedness of Babylon and how that the Saints are not to be entangled therein.  But it would seem that many of the so called Christian Religions of today are bowing in acceptance of the authority of Babylon by observing/following many of her traditions.

What does the Written Word of God “YHWH” the Bible say concerning this?  Let’s take a look see.

We read in Revelation 17:1-5, "There came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will show unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: *With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.

To commit fornication with Babylon is to practice her ways, “Christianized Pagan Doctrines; FALSE Doctrines.”  Her ways seem delightful, they feel good, look good and sound good but they aren’t, they are lies straight from the devil.

Part of the drunkenness that these individuals are experiencing is the pleasurable joy in seeing a participating in the many of the religious practices of Babylon

"*So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. *And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:

One of the Blasphemies that is widely practiced today could be that of Speaking Against God’s Holy 7th Day Sabbath.

There are many Abominations listed in God’s Holy Word the Bible; if mankind is defiled by any of them they will not be permitted to enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.

Therefore, it is vital that we SEARCH the Scriptures to see what can cause us to be Abominable because NO ABOMINAL thing will enter into the Kingdom of God “YHWH” and His Christ.

"*And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH."

Babylon created the MOTHER of ALL ABOMINATIONS “a Sunday Sabbath in place of God’s Holy 7th Day Sabbath, the lie of Christmas the supposed Birthday of Jesus and Easter the supposed Resurrection of Jesus” just to mention a few.  If anyone would really take the time to read the Bible, they would find that there has never been a desire or requirement of God for mankind to observe Christmas or Easter.  

They would also find that Jesus did not arise from the grave on Sunday morning but late in the afternoon on the 7th Day of the week.  The Prophet Daniel prophesied that the Sacrifice “the Death of Jesus as the Sacrificial Lamb that taketh away the sins of the world” St John 1:29, would cease “come to an end” in the midst of the week, “Wednesday is the midst of the week” Daniel 9:27.  

In revelation 14:6-12 we read, "I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the Everlasting Gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, *Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of His judgment is come: and worship Him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

The way that the Saints are to Fear God is to HATE EVIL.

"*And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. *And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,

To worship the Beast is to accept his teachings and ways. The Mark of the Beast is nothing more than to think, say and do that which the Beast has declared to be permissible.

"*The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of His indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: *And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. **Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus."

If you want to be welcomed into the Kingdom of God you MUST keep “Observe and Do” His Commandments and accept the Precious Shed Blood of Jesus His Only Begotten Son as your Lord and Saviour.  If either of these requirements is missing in your life, DO NOT expect to Enter into the Kingdom of Heaven and receive Eternal Life.

In 2nd Corinthians 6:17-18 the Apostle Paul wrote, "Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, *And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty."

The People of the Lord are a peculiar ; the Apostle Peter in 1st Peter 2:9 wrote, "ye are a Chosen Generation, a Royal Priesthood, an Holy Nation, a Peculiar People; that ye should show forth the Praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His Marvellous Light:"

However, there is a troubling thing that hinders mankind from Entering into the Fullness of the Glory that God has prepared for those that are Called According to His Purpose; “Many are Called but few are Chosen, St. Matthew 22:14.” The reason for this is because so many refuse to accept the Written Word of God “YHWH” the Bible as their sole source for Doctrine and Life.

It would seem that mankind would rather do as the Apostle Paul wrote in 2nd Timothy 4:3-4. "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; *And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables."

The lust of mankind to have their cake and eat it too, so to speak, has drawn them away from the Spirit of Truth the Bible to believe a lie “practice or participate in a lie” and be damned, 2nd Thessalonians 2:11-12.

I leave the answer to this question up to you; “Are we living in accordance with God’s Holy Written Word the Bible or are we Offering “as it were” Strange Fire before the Lord by the things that we allow and do?”
