"The Man with the Writers Inkhorn", Part 8

Ezekiel Chapter 9 Verses 1-11 and Chapter 10 Verses 1-7

VERSE 8So it was that while they were killing them, I was left alone; and I fell on my face and
cried out, and said, “Ah, Lord GOD! Will You destroy all the remnant of Israel in pouring out
Your fury on Jerusalem?


“Ezekiel’s falling down and crying, “
Ah Lord GOD! Wilt thou destroy all the residue of Israel?” is a
reminder of Abraham and the destruction of Sodom where only a handful survived. It is also a reminder of
Elijah, who thought he was the only one left when 7,000 had not bowed the knee to Baal (
1 Kings 19:
14, 18
).”

VERSE 9Then He said to me, “The iniquity of the house of Israel and Judah is exceedingly
great, and the land is full of bloodshed and the city full of perversity; for they say, ‘The LORD
has forsaken the land, and the LORD does not see!
"

“The world’s attitude is, “
The LORD hath forsaken the earth, and the LORD sees not.” Most of the
world does not believe in a revealed God, including
many ministers who do not believe in the inspiration of
the Holy Scriptures (
only in bits and pieces of their own choosing in which to captivate and intrigue the
nominal believer ensuring their positions as guides and leaders among them
). Not understanding the
permission of evil
and God’s refraining from visiting instant judgment upon the sinner has
encouraged those without faith to render evil
.”

VERSES 10 and 11And as for me also, my eye will neither spare, nor will I have pity, but I will
recompense their deeds on their own head. Just then, the man clothed with linen, who had the
inkhorn at his side, reported back and said, “
I have done as You commanded me.”

The Time of Harvest

This is not a time for reformation. It is the time of harvest
. The wheat is to be gathered, the
separation takes place, and the systems are destroyed.
Christendom will be utterly destroyed. The
Lord will have no pity; He will not spare
it. The "house of Israel" in this prophecy represents
Catholicism. Judah represents federated Protestantism. These are the two religious parts mentioned in
Revelation 16:13 as the beast and the false prophet which are aligned with state government,
and which will be destroyed.

The land is full of blood, the blood guilt of Christendom. It is caused by the teaching of
God-dishonoring
doctrines such as
eternal torment, the Trinity, evolution, spiritism, and in some instances even
reincarnation.
The clergy act as though they don’t believe the Lord cares. They lack belief in the reality
that the Lord is present and will soon pour out his judgments. In
Verse 11 the man clothed with linen
says, "
I have done as thou hast commanded me," a phrase which shows that the message will assist
in sealing the 144,000.”
Here then the Pastor had finished the work assigned him and passed beyond the
Vail October 31, 1916
(“A Man Clothed in Linen”)

From Brother Shallieu’s point of view,

I have done as thou hast commanded me.” The man with the writer’s inkhorn reported that he had
finished his work;
the six Volumes were complete. But notice, the account does not state that the six
men with the slaughter weapons had finished their work. Why is the account silent about the six men?
Although the Pastor has died, his writings continue to do a slaughter work, repelling some and attracting
others. Those who do not accept present truth when given the opportunity experience turmoil of
conscience. Those firmly wedded to the nominal system do not like to hear the message because it reveals
many improper and or erroneous doctrines and practices. An example is receiving honor of men with titles
such as Reverend. Another example is the pope being carried on a seat by staves held by men; this
blasphemous practice copies God’s being carried, as it were, in the Ark of the Covenant back in Israel’s
history. Two palms are held toward the pope to resemble the cherubim wings in the Most Holy of the
Tabernacle.

The Pastor was divinely appointed
to write six Volumes only, yet he originally thought there would be
seven and the Scriptures so indicate. (The 15th and 16th chapters of the Book of Revelation discuss
seven plagues.) In other words, the expectation was right, but the Pastor’s personal work stopped with
the six Volumes. He had intended to write Studies in the Scriptures in seven Volumes. Incidentally,
how do we know that the seven plagues had to do with
messages of truth? The two witnesses (the Old
and New Testaments) have power to call down plagues (
Rev 11:3, 6).

This vision came to Ezekiel in the sixth year of captivity, that is, only five years before
the destruction of
Jerusalem and the Temple in
606 BC (Ezek 8:1). Millions of people literally died at that time. As
prophetically represented by the few hairs that remained in Ezekiel’s apron, the spared remnant was
very
small indeed
—as if they were handpicked (Ezek 5:1, 3, 4).

Hence the few survivors from Judah would have thought their escape from the slaughter of
Nebuchadnezzar’s armies was because God had “
marked” them for survival. To a certain extent that may
have been true, although the real intent of this vision is for our day.” (
The Book of Ezekiel by Brother
Frank Shallieu
)

With regards to the foregoing comments by our dear departed Brother Frank Shallieu it should be noted
that not all of the brethren are in complete agreement with his thoughts here, not all believe that the
seven last plagues of Revelation were the Volumes par say (myself included) the reason being that
although the Volumes did indeed have an effect upon many in Babylon both minister and parishioner
alike the truth is the majority were never effected either directly or indirectly having never even heard of
the Volumes nor in the majority of the truths contained in such.

Go into one of the typical nominal churches today and ask the attendants there if they have ever heard
of the Volumes, ask the minister, at best they will erroneously presume that you are speaking of
something published by the Jehovah’s Witnesses, which they disregard as nothing but the errors of a cult.

Now Brother Shallieu explains that the reason why there is no mention of the six men having completed
their work is because the Pastor’s works i.e. the volumes continue to do a slaughtering work, repelling
some and attracting others, but the same could equally be said if we were to accept Brother Ric
Cunningham’s thought that the six men were teachers of error, their erroneous teachings continue even
today destroying the faith of many
.
