Thou sayest there be a few members of the body in unlikely places that most folks can’t see. Absolutely! Maybe even most of them, especially if one is looking for love of truth instead of ‘correct’ doctrine. Look at this and laugh, and understand that I speak loosely and with a little bit less than the due diligence it deserves:
We have pastor Eli James, who seems to have his history down, except that he seems to put too much emphasis on the Anglo-Saxons as inheritors of ‘the birth right’. He thinks the other races pretty much get zip, except for the provisions of the ‘new covenant’. I’m not sure what his concept of that entails. He emphasizes that those saying they are jews today are Edomites and will be destroyed at the Lord’s return, with the interesting clarification that they will all spontaneously combust ! Who knows… one will be taken and one will be left…(smile)
And we have pastor Dowell… He also has his history down, except that he concludes that the Hebrews were and are the black race. They do seem to have been dispersed more than others, sort of, but I don’t see much evidence of blacks being key to spreading the Gospel. He concludes that it’s the white folks that are the Edomites or Cananites, which kind of makes sense since it’s mostly white folks building the silicon beast.
And we have Danny Morano, who is also relentless on his attack of the counterfeit church. He’s definitely hot on the trail of the Holy Spirit, but leaves the Joseph ministry to others. He doesn’t seem to think that the racial aspects deserve much attention, but he will defend to the death your right to… well, maybe not (smile). Perhaps the Lord will use one of the other two to feed and protect him if the angels are busy (smile).
What is one to conclude? All appear to have diligently examined the scriptures, but divide them differently. What purpose do these apparently irreconcilable differences serve amongst the men with the best Word? If the ‘Body of Christ’ were to ‘gather all in one place’ , any sort of place, too soon would they screw it all up? Or make too good a target? Do you have a ‘unified field theory?
