Pulling Loose Threads :: by Gene Lawley

In my sophomore science class many years ago, the teacher, a lady who made some of her own clothing, told of an amusing but embarrassing incident that happened to her. She had the habit of simply temporarily basting a sleeve to her dress that was in the making, then she would come back later and fully attach it.

She once forgot to do that to one sleeve, and later while wearing the dress to school, she saw a loose thread hanging there. She absently pulled on it and was surprised and embarrassed when the whole sleeve fell off!

In the current and very popular Killing series of books by Bill O’Reilly and his researcher and co-author, Martin Dugard, every story seems to have a loose thread hanging there in plain sight but purposely not “pulled” on to see what would open up. Every one hints of a shadowy, secretive purpose being worked out behind the scenes.

Even in the Killing Jesus account, O’Reilly purposely avoided the spiritual or religious implications and only recounted the historical narrative. Had he “pulled the loose thread” in each one of those accounts, would he have found a common thread connecting all of them?

I submit that he would have, and it goes back to the Tower of Babel and the bold declaration in their actions that they were going to be independent of God and His authority. They were going to control the world. Subtly, their declaration was simply, “There are more ways to heaven than the one way God has presented.”

The history of money tells us of the development of the banking system as the use of negotiable warehouse receipts evolved into central banks and eventually, a worldwide interlocking bank system with the Federal Reserve System in America having a glaring prominence. In the early 1800s the Rothschild regime had obtained such control of the system that one of them said, “Give me control of a nation’s money supply and I will not care what its laws are.”

Would the pulling of those loose threads have started the researcher, and the reader, on a “follow the money trail” to the citadel of power and control that now intends to rule the world with a New World Order and a one world government—controlled by those who are the globalist elite? [1]

Is the curtain being lifted on a drama that is to unfold shortly, as we see the open intentions for control of the coming presidential election? One prime example of the collusion of power and control in the upper reaches of our political system is this: In the sixty years I have been watching how things play out year after year, I do not recall there ever being a reduction or even a hold on the national debt limit.

It always has been raised to allow for more debt to accumulate, whether Democrats or Republicans are in the majority role. The nation has continually been on a slippery slope that slides us into more and more of a socialistic-welfare state. That is the identifying characteristic of a new world order that rules with a one world government—a ruling elite class with a subjective, submissive and dependent population.

The flip side of the story, the unveiling of the real truth, began when on the cross Jesus cried out those last words:

“Father, ‘into Your hands I commit My spirit,” then breathed His last (Luke 23:45):

“Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split…” (Matthew 27:51).

The veil in the temple was separating the Holy of Holies from the public and only the high priest could enter that place once a year, but not without blood. Now, the curtain had been pulled back, torn from top to bottom, and the sacred place of God’s presence was His habitation no more. A truth had been revealed to mankind.

The presence of God was taking up a different place of habitation. It was to be the human body, the human spirit where He would join and dwell therein: “Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?” (1 Corinthians 3:16). That would take place at Pentecost, as reported in Acts 2.

It was a new era that had opened up. That temple was no longer the dwelling place of God and was destined to be destroyed before the century would end. (Preterists do not realize that that temple had no sacred place to be desecrated any longer, and Titus and his men only wanted the gold.)

According to Romans 11:25, God was to set aside, in part, the Jewish people, to scatter them among the nations, until the times of the Gentiles—this new era—is fulfilled.

In Old Testament times God spoke to believers through His prophets, as He said in Amos 3:7:

“Surely the Lord God does nothing unless He reveals His secret to His servants, the prophets.”

In this age, He tells us this:

“God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things”(Hebrews 1:1-2).

Jesus clarified the manner in which this would operate with His promise of the Comforter who would come after His departure, thus giving us the New Testament parallel to the quote from Amos above:

“However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come” (John 16:13, underscores for emphasis).

A seemingly loose thread, thought so by more than a few, is what Jesus claimed in John 14:6, that He “is the way, the truth and the life, no one can come to the father but through Him.” So people pull that thread, thinking there must be some other way, there must be something that is not yet revealed. Let’s see what comes up when we pull that thread:

God spoke to Moses from the burning bush, “Tell them I AM sent you” (Exodus 3:14). Jesus said to the questioning skeptical: “Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM” (John 8:58).

The request Philip asked of Jesus was, “Lord, show us the Father and it will be sufficient for us,” and Jesus answered, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father” (John 14:8-9).

Peter was fully convinced, knowing he had been forgiven and had been dramatically trans- formed, and made this declaration: “Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name [Jesus Christ] under heaven given among men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12).

Paul, having spent three years in the Arabian desert, apparently just he and the Lord who had revealed Himself to him on the road to Damascus that time (Acts 9), wrote this to Timothy:

“For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there isone God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time” (1 Timothy 2:3-6).

Shall we pull Peter’s thread one more time? He really speaks emphatically on this, making it very worthwhile to read it again and especially that they are some of the very last words from his heart: “knowing that shortly I mustput off my tent, just as our Lord Jesus Christ showed me. Moreover I will be careful to ensure that you always have a reminder of these things after my decease.

“For we did not follow cunningly devised fables when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of His majesty. For He received from God the Father honor and glory when such a voice came to Him from the Excellent Glory:

‘This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.’ And we heard this voice which came from heaven when we were with Him on the holy mountain” (2 Peter 1:14-18).

(He refers to the Mount of Transfiguration, recorded in Matthew 17:1-3 and other places.)

The remaining question, then, is this: Do these threads lead us to deceit and despair, or even devilish rituals and morally degenerate activities? No, they do not, but they lead us to what has traditionally been identified as the “scarlet thread” from Genesis to Revelation—which tell of blood sacrifices that foreshadow that one sacrifice: God sent to die in our place, for our sins. Bring me “anyone but Jesus” and let’s see if he has nail holes in his hands.

The pull-cords on the curtains of the world stage are being slowly drawn, and we will see undercurrent secrets often hinted at but never fully revealed. People who live two lives, one public and one that is devilish and private, are going to be shamefully exposed before Godand the world. Paul writes of it this way:

“Some men’s sins are clearly evident, preceding them to judgment, but those of some men follow later. Likewise, the good works of some are clearly evident, and those that are otherwise cannot be hidden” (1 Timothy 5:24-25).

The hidden, deceptive goal of the New World Order is a thread many have pulled and have embraced what they found, yet Jesus has said, “I am the way” and “Enter by the narrow gate, for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it” (Matthew 7:13).
