The Seven-Sealed Scroll, Featuring Phil Kulis

Posted in Phil Kulis, Prophecy, Revelation with tags , , on November 9, 2018 by paulthepoke

PhilKulis PicIn Revelation 5 we are introduced to a Scroll held in the hand of God the Father. A determination is made as to who is worthy to open the Scroll. And in Chapter 6 the first six of the Seals of the Scroll are opened.

A scroll is a paper coiled around a spool. The inner part of a scroll cannot be accessed before the outer part.

The common image of a seven-sealed scroll is that of a scroll with seven seals along the leading edge so that all seven act as locks to prevent the scroll from opening.

This arrangement of seven “locks” means that all seven must be opened before any part of the scroll can be accessed. This method means any one of the seals would keep the entire scroll sealed and therefore they are redundant. Why would God the Father need six redundant seals locking a scroll when worthiness of the recipient is what enables the seals to be broken?

 

1 And I saw in the right hand of Him who sat on the throne a scroll written inside and on the back, sealed with seven seals.
2 Then I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the scroll and to loose its seals?”
3 And no one in heaven or on the earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll, or to look at it.
4 So I wept much, because no one was found worthy to open and read the scroll, or to look at it.
5 But one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seven seals.”
6 And I looked, and behold, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as though it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent out into all the earth.
7 Then He came and took the scroll out of the right hand of Him who sat on the throne.
Revelation 5:1-7 NKJV

John documents that there are two witnesses to the mechanical nature of the Scroll. That the scroll is to be opened then followed by its seals loosed. Neither the angel nor the Elder says, “loose it’s seals and open it” but rather both witness that the scroll is opened before the seals are loosed.

The scroll is opened and seals are loosed as it is unwound. This indicates that the seals are internal within in the scroll. A seal is opened and the scroll is unrolled. Another seal is broken and the scroll is unrolled further.

This causes a “selah” or pause between the loosing of the seals and allows the effect of the current judgment to “soak in.”

Therefore, the Seals are in sequential order, not simultaneous as some would lead you to believe.

“One Nation Under God” & Moral Relativism… Phil Kulis

Posted in Phil Kulis with tags , , , , , , , on September 27, 2018 by paulthepoke

PhilKulis PicHere’s the problem of moral relativism.

You are subject to the morality of whoever has power over you. You don’t get a choice.

In a dictatorship such as Nazi Germany or a Mexican drug lord, you don’t get the luxury of saying you don’t want to follow the Ten Commandments. And worse than that you don’t get the benefit of others following the Ten Commandments.

If a dictator wants your money, or your labor, or your wife, children and even your life… You don’t have a say so about it.

The Ten Commandments were a gift to mankind. Prior to that, everyone was subject to the whim of a patriarch, or tribal chieftain, or king.

So, the next time an atheist tries to say they think they are moral in themselves, it’s not about your morality. It’s about the morality of whoever has power over you.

So, thank God that this nation chooses to say “One nation under God” and “In God we trust.” Because the morality of God is fair to all.

Exodus 20:1-17 And God spoke all these words, saying,

“I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.

You shall have no other gods before me.

You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.

You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain.

Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor, and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, you, or your son, or your daughter, your male servant, or your female servant, or your livestock, or the sojourner who is within your gates. For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.

Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.

You shall not murder.

You shall not commit adultery.

You shall not steal.

You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male servant, or his female servant, or his ox, or his donkey, or anything that is your neighbor’s.”

Adam & the Fall of Man… Phil Kulis

Posted in Creation, Phil Kulis with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 20, 2018 by paulthepoke

PhilKulis PicGenesis 3:6-7 When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was desirable to make one wise, she took from its fruit and ate; and she gave also to her husband with her, and he ate. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loin coverings.

Notice something? Adam and Eve’s eyes were opened at the same time even though Eve ate first.

The command to not eat wasn’t given to Eve. It was given to Adam before Eve was created.

Genesis 2:17-18 but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you will surely die.” Then the LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him.”

Eve didn’t disobey a command from God because God didn’t give the command to Eve. Neither was there a command “nor shall you touch it” from God.

Eve’s eyes were opened when Adam disobeyed. Until he ate she was justified by his obedience even though she had sinned.

 

Jesus cross sun

The Second Adam, Jesus Christ, was obedient to God even until death on a cross. Therefore, His bride the Church is justified by His righteousness in obedience even though the bride has sinned.

It’s not about your unrighteousness because of disobedience, you’re doomed. It’s about His righteousness because of obedience. In Him, we have grace and mercy.

Her sin would be addressed same as the Church’s sin is addressed in Christ.

Sadly, mankind has blamed Eve all this time. The fall of Man was Adam’s fault.

Romans 5:12-21 Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned, for sin indeed was in the world before the law was given, but sin is not counted where there is no law. Yet death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those whose sinning was not like the transgression of Adam, who was a type of the one who was to come.

But the free gift is not like the trespass. For if many died through one man’s trespass, much more have the grace of God and the free gift by the grace of that one man Jesus Christ abounded for many. And the free gift is not like the result of that one man’s sin. For the judgment following one trespass brought condemnation, but the free gift following many trespasses brought justification. For if, because of one man’s trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ.

Therefore, as one trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all men. For as by the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man’s obedience the many will be made righteous. Now the law came in to increase the trespass, but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more, so that, as sin reigned in death, grace also might reign through righteousness leading to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

Metonic Cycles… Featuring Phil Kulis

Posted in Fall Feasts, Phil Kulis, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 12, 2018 by paulthepoke

philkulis-picThe Feast of Trumpets is an announcement that something has come as evidenced by the sounding of the trumpet (shofar, ram’s horn).

There is a very unique connection with Trumpets to the next Feast, the Day of Atonement. The period of time between the two Feasts is also significant and is called the “Days of Awe”. So, the two Feasts and the interval between represent an event consisting of a marked beginning, a specific period of time and a marked ending.

Trumpets is an announcement that during the Days of Awe it is a time of repentance and forgiveness. When the Day of Atonement arrives, it signals “time’s up” and an accounting will be made as to who repented and forgave and who didn’t.

The Jewish calendar is based on the lunar cycle yet it is reconciled to the solar cycle. This reconciling is called the Metonic Cycle. Normally the Jewish calendar has twelve months of thirty (sometimes twenty-nine) days. But with the Metonic cycle, seven out of nineteen years an extra thirteenth month is added. At the end of the nineteen-year Metonic cycle, the calendar is within minutes where an adjustment can be made.

The reason this is important is when the Metonic cycle is understood. The time between Trumpets and Atonement when separated by seven years gives the exact number of days equal to the number of days given in prophecy for the 70th Week of Daniel. The number of days given is 1,260 + 1,290 which equals 2,550 days.

2550

But this exact number of days between Trumpets and Atonement separated by seven years doesn’t happen all the time. It happens irregularly because of the extra month added to the calendar seven out of nineteen years in the Metonic cycle. Specifically, when a count of months is made between Trumpets and Atonement separated by seven years, the number of months will be 86 or 87 months. It is the count of 86 months that yields the exact count of 2,550 days.

Trumpets is a Feast Day the beginning of which is based on the sighting of the moon immediately after it is new. The focus is on the New Moon and also is the beginning of a new year according to the pre-Exodus calendar. It is the only Feast related to the New Moon and a new year.

The year that begins an 86-month count over seven years starting on Trumpets is called a “candidate” year. It is a candidate for the start of the 70th Week.

It’s important to remember that the rapture is not the event that begins the 70th Week! The 70th Week begins when the character known as the antichrist “confirms a covenant”.

Is There Evil??? -Phil Kulis

Posted in Gospel, Phil Kulis with tags , , , , , , , , , on August 22, 2018 by paulthepoke

A question often posed, or a variant thereof goes like this… “If there’s a God, then why does He allow evil?”

My response is, “Is evil real? Or is it just a figment of your imagination?”

If it’s not real, then what is your concern?

But if it is real, should it be punished?

Have you yourself committed evil? Do you think any evil you’ve done is not as bad as someone else’s evil and therefore you’re good by comparison?

Because evil is real and evil should be punished, that means there is a good that is contrast to evil. Therefore, we have free will to choose good or evil.

And since there is a good to contrast evil proving that it should be punished, then it’s because of a violation of the Moral Law.

The Moral Law comes from the objective Moral Law Giver. Man has proven his morality is subjective relative to his situation or perception of someone else’s evil, and probability of getting caught. This is more proof of evil.

So evil is real.
Evil should be punished.
All have committed evil.
Evil is in contrast to good.
Good is defined by the Moral Law.
The Moral Law is given by an Objective Giver.

The last realization is our accountability to the Objective Moral Law Giver.

As determined earlier evil must be punished.
The penalty is Death.

Plato said, “The Deity may be able to forgive sin. But I do not see how.”

Plato understood that an Objective Moral Law Giver must be Justice. And Justice must be impersonal. So, the Moral Law Giver is obligated to punish sin.

 

water glass

Imagine for a moment sitting before you is a glass filled half way with water. While you’re watching, I place one drop of lethal poison in the glass. There is no antidote. Would you drink it? No, if you’re in your right mind you wouldn’t. What if I filled the glass with more water all the way to full? Now would you drink it? No, you wouldn’t, because the lethal dose of poison is still in the glass.

Your life is the glass of water. And the lethal poison is the evil you’ve done in your life. The additional water is the remainder of your life. Even without more evil, you can’t change the evil of the past. You are doomed.

But the Objective Moral Law Giver provided a way for you. He sent His Son who drank your glass of water and left His glass of water without the poison for you to drink. There’s nothing you can do about it. It’s done.

All that remains is for you to drink it and contemplate what that means to you.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, what whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 

And the proof of that eternal life, the power over death, is the Resurrection of His Son.

Drink up.

These are the main constellations of the Mazzaroth. Major stars and the meaning of the star’s names are completed within the constellation.

Virgo, The Seed of the Woman
– Spica = the Branch

Libra, The Required Price Paid
– Zuben alChemali = the price which is deficient
– Zuben alGenubi = the price which covers

Scorpio, The Mortal Conflict
– Antares = the wounding
Decan to Scorpio is Ophiuchus,
– Ras El Hagus = He who holds

Sagittarius, The Final Triumph
– Naim = the Gracious One

Capricorn, Life out of Death
– Al Gedi = Cut off
– Dabih = the Sacrifice slain

Aquarius, Blessing out of Victory
– Sadalmelik = the Record of the pouring out

It’s interesting to note that Ophiuchus, the decan to Scorpio, is restraining the serpent with his heel on the scorpion. The star Antares meaning wounding is the foot of Ophiuchus and the head of Scorpio.

Also, Sagittarius the archer’s arrow is pointed at the heart of Scorpio.

Maybe meant to be part of the same since they share a major star and this prophecy.

Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; He shall bruise you on the head, and you shall bruise Him on the heel.

Disbelief Is the Issue, Featuring Phil Kulis

Posted in Phil Kulis with tags , , , , , , , , on June 28, 2018 by paulthepoke

philkulis-picIn the Garden of Eden, Satan came in the form of a serpent and the result was sin entered the world.

In the Exodus, Moses went before Pharaoh – the ruler of the world empire. When Aaron cast Moses’s staff before Pharaoh as God told Moses to do, it turned into a serpent – the symbol for sin. In return Pharaoh’s men cast their staffs down and their staffs also turned into serpents. But the serpent of God ate the serpents of Pharaoh. God’s symbol for sin took away the sins of the world. Aaron then lifted up the serpent and it turned back into a staff. But the serpents of Pharaoh were no more.

Later while wandering in the desert the Jews were complaining, so God sent fiery serpents to bite them and they were dying from being bitten. They asked Moses to pray to God then God told Moses to make a serpent of bronze and put it on a stick on a hill. Whenever anyone was bitten by a fiery serpent all they had to do was look at the bronze serpent and they would not die.

The only other mention of the bronze serpent is when Jesus sets up the most famous verse in the Bible.

John 3:14-18 “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”

Sin is not the issue.
Disbelief is the issue.
