Pastor Rev. Robert Celeste ACP/MCAC the pastor who obeyed Christ command in Luke 22:36


All Scripture quoted, in both sermons and daily thoughts, unless otherwise noted, is from the ACP/King James Version. The words in red are those of God the Son, the Lord Jesus and the words in purple are those of God the Father and God the Holy Ghost and the words in this sickly EPA greenish color are of satan.


Tuesday, January 1, 2013 The word is parthenos, it is pronounced par-then'-os
Revelation 14:4

A New Years thought and resolution.

Because we, as humble human beings, cannot grasp it, cannot figure out where they will come from, some who do Bible exhortations and/or commentary, take some pretty unrealistic liberties with Scripture, to make it conform with their inferior to God, thinking. One such example is found in Revelation 14:4, God tells us through the pen of His faithful servant and closest friend on earth, the Apostle John, These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins (parthenos). These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever He goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the first fruits unto God and to the Lamb.

The word used in Revelation 14:4 for virgins is parthenos, it is pronounced par-then'-os, and is exactly the same word used to define Mary the mother of Jesus, as a virgin in Matthew 1:23 Behold, a virgin (parthenos) shall be with child, and shall bring forth a Son, and they shall call His name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

So, instead of taking the Scripture as it is written, they change the meaning or add to the definition of the word in question. Strong;s Greek dictionalry defines parthenos as meaning; a maiden; by implication, an unmarried daughter:--virgin. A person who has never had any form of sex, none. And that is exactly what God's word says these men, these 144,000 men are.

How do we know there are 144,000 of them? Simple, for again we simply go to God's word and read what He tells us.

1-8 And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree. And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, saying, "Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads." And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed: a hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.

Of the tribe of Judah were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Asher were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Naphtali were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasseh were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Zebulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand. Revelation 7:1-8 ACP/KJV

So, why is it so difficult for many to understand that God means exactly what He has said, that these are 144,000 men, 12,000 men from each of the twelve tribes listed in Revelation 7, all men who have, as the first part of Revelation 14:4 actually says, "These are they which were not defiled with women (men who have never had any form of sex); for they are virgins."

What happens with commentators who really do not believe that God really does mean everything He has said and that He has said it exactly how He meant to say it, is that they try to make Scripture fit into their box, into their understanding of the world, that until man verifies it using his own puny intelligence, God must have been speaking figuratively and not literally. The more I read and study God's word, the more I come to realize that it is all, even if we can't understand it, literal.

When you accept the fact that God meant exactly what He meant, said it exactly how He meant to say it, and means every word in His letter to us, the holy Bible, then difficult issues become less difficult with study. Now before I continue, I want to explain a bit of why most think that God did not mean "These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins." but that what He meant was men who had not committed spiritual or sexual adultery or illicitness.

Up to 70 AD Jews were Jews, and the Temple kept exact records of births, names, lineage, etc. But in 70 AD along came the Roman Arm. They burned the temple to the ground, destroyed all the records, killed around 1.3 million Jews and took the rest of the Jews prisoner, putting them in the coliseum or selling them into slavery. For the next 1,650 years, other than in the USA, it was not illegal to rape a Jewish girl. Taking that all into consideration, the commentator thinks to himself, God can't really mean He is going to pull together 12,000 virgin men from each of the twelve tribes as related in Revelation 7. He must mean that those verses or at least the word virgin, is to be taken figuratively.

But a study of God's Holy and Perfect Word, shows that it is a literal 144,000 male virgins, for God has plenty of men to chose from when you look at and read what He dictated in Ezekiel 37:1-14.

Now for this year's resolution, men, don't think your pastor has all the answers, he doesn't, so resolve this year that you will spend time in God's word each day.

The difference between a true preacher and a false preacher comes down to this. The true preacher uses God's word to convict of sin, the false preacher twist God's word to justify sin. The Lord our God, Christ Jesus be with you always, amen.

Sometime in the not too distant future I want to talk to you men in the Militias, about Luke 20:25 and Matthew 24:24.


Lord, make my faith as that which I perceive the Samaritans to have had. Amen.

As you ponder today's Scripture, ponder also your own relationship with Christ. Are you a Samaritan or are you a Galilean?


Lord give us eyes to see, ears to hear and a heart attuned to Your word.


Men, let us strive to be men who follow Christ, and pray our wives will, as Peter's and Abraham's wives did, simply follow.
