The Hirelings Terror of Death

Most of the hirelings that were employed by The worldwide Church of God, and have betrayed God's elect for less than 30 pieces of silver, are now close to death.  The prospect of death doesn't fill them with the joy with which it fill the Chosen Vessel.  On the contrary, they are terrified of dying because they face the same fate as the rich man.  So the recent death of that awful man Ron Dart, who once said, "Church members died because they were not allowed to go to the doctor," will send shock waves through Wayne Cole, and all the other hirelings who are now stumbling towards death, with the assistance of doctors.

In contrast to the terrors of the hirelings, the Chosen Vessel, who was a faithful minister of Christ, was inspired to write, "I am crucified with Christ" (Gal. 2:20).  

By the way, Dr Meredith likes to trumpet, "For 25 years, I taught the Epistles of Paul at Ambassador College, and Gal. 2:20 is my favourite scripture."  Yet, he has no idea what it means to be crucified with Christ; or what the Chosen Vessel meant by, "Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus..(2 Cor. 4:10).

And as for his pompous claim to have taught the Epistles of Paul.  That is nothing more than a sick joke, for he doesn't understand that one has to be taken up to the third heaven, and then spend many years in the wilderness of sanctification before one is able to understand the revelation of the mystery (Eph.3:3), that was given to the Chosen Vessel. 

Anyway, the great Apostle was truly crucified with Christ.  For he was inspired to write: "for I bear in my body the marks of our Lord Jesus"(Gal.6:17), and he added that he would only glory in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, "by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world"(Gal.6:14).

Now the love of Christ constrains us to ask, can Dr Meredith or any of the men that betrayed God's elect, and are now teaching that Christ is divided, say that they bear in their bodies the marks of our Lord Jesus, or that they are crucified to the world?  Not in a million years!  The hirelings operating out of UCG, RCG, LCG, PCG, COG/Hulme, and all the other divided churches of God, have both feet in this world.  One in Sodom and the other in Gomorrah, and like Demas, who forsake Paul, they love this present world.

Anyway, the Chosen Vessel further observed, "I die daily" (1 Cor.15:31). And yet again, "having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better"(Phil.1:23).  And when the great Apostle was facing possible execution, these were his final words to Timothy thus: "For I am now ready to be offered, and the time my departure is at hand.  I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith...(2 Tim.4:6-7).

Can anyone who is truly converted read these words without bursting into a flood of tears, as his or her heart dilates with joy?
