Modern Parables for the Lord's People
|The core essence of "Greater Things" is that there
is always a better way to do things -- whether it be
religion, politics, science, academia -- anything. To the extent that
we get institutionalized and codified in a set belief system, is the extent
that we inhibit the ability to grow and learn new and better ways.
"New wine cannot be put into old bottles," is how Jesus put
it. It still holds very true today. The
"establishment" whether it be religious or political or academic,
or whatever, hinders progress, rather than supporting it. So embracing
"greater things" almost of necessity means going "outside the
box", to push the envelope into new areas, and being viewed as a
maverick. I have found that when it comes to religion, the higher
understandings are encoded for those who have eyes to see, while allowing
those who refuse to see plenty of excuses to linger behind. Those who
are ready to grow, do so, and those who are not, don't. -- Sterling

Sterling's Sunday School -- Graduate Studies for the Remnant
Launched August 10, 2014, to cover advanced studies and concepts for the
remnant. Not a substitute for your regular Sunday School, which gives you the
benefit of in-person mingling.

/ Overview - Where I'm coming from, the importance of thinking
for yourself and taking responsibility for your own salvation; multiple
mortalities; the vital role of freedom as it pertains to the first and
second Messianic advents. (August 10, 2014)|
|Reverse Chronological Sequence
|Obedience in Alphabetics
- On October 12, 2014, the Gospel Essentials lesson topic was "Obedience". In this episode, I dig deeper into that topic, looking at the etymology of "Obedience" in the Hebrew, Greek, and English, showing that the words translated thus actually have as their primary meaning "to hear", which is prerequisite to obeying. (October
Alphabetics (video) - Addressing the contrary scripture: "It
is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment."
(Heb. 9:27) A look at the Greek word for
judgment: krisis. Inserting the modern Greek and Hebrew word for
"reincarnation" into the lexicons. (October 5, 2014)|
|Talents & Gifts
- The word for "talent" in the OT lexicon is actually one page
away from the "Bride, Lust, Prison" page we looked at last week. Ties
in to setting in order the house of God (stepping into your one might and strong
mission, using your God-given talents...).
(September 28, 2014)|
Lust-Prison - A look at the lust addiction, its effect on me, my
former marriage, and for the planet at large. Healing is possible.
(September 21, 2014)|
Divorce and Recovery (video)
- On September 15, Cheri and I signed our divorce agreement, one day
following the first to two Sterling Sunday School episodes I did regarding our
divorce. I show how our divorce lines up in the Alphabetics code; and I invite
everyone to step into their one mighty and strong mission. (September 28,
|Missionary Work = Sharing All
Good Things - The concept of "missionary work" shouldn't just be limited to sharing the gospel, but ties to the responsibility to be a light to the world, sharing the good things we've been taught, from professional to silly, artistic to deep.

|Tithes vs. All in
- A look at the words around "tithing" in the lexicons.
Ramifications for wealth, tyranny, good works, thought as a creative
process. Giving 10% is a good start, but what about giving 100% to the cause
of bringing about good on Earth? Discussion about role of exotic free energy
technology to facilitate the metamorphosis of society. (August 31, 2014)|
Homer Workman joins me for a chat about honesty, government, what to say
when the wife asks "do I look fat in this?", going with a higher
principle of acknowledging the amazing person she is. In looking up
"honest" in the lexicons, we discover the amazing coincidence that
"homer" is right before it in the concordance, and my SSN is right
before it in the NT lexicon. (August 24, 2014)|
The foundational principle and pinnacle of all religion, just happens to be
the topic on this first Sunday that I'm doing this topical Sunday School
series. (August 17, 2014)|
Presently I'm focusing my efforts in helping bring forward clean, renewable,
affordable energy technologies. -- Sterling

Up is Hard to Do - "Waking up" isn't a one-day
event, though it often starts that way. It is an ongoing process of
re-learning everything you ever learned, correcting the brainwashing
and seeing the world through new lenses. But the hardest thing is
overcoming the social ostracism that accompanies observing things
radically differently from those around you. (PESN; September
| TLC Cult Breaking up
from the Inside - 18-year member, Morrie Cloward, describes
the power trip being played by the founder of the Mormon
split-off group, the "True and Living Church (TLC) of
Saints of the Last Days". (Greater Things; May 31, 2011)||

Tesla in Alphabetics Bible Code - A look at the years
of Tesla's death and birth, as well as the room number in the New
Yorker where he passed away, reveals some fascinating commentary on
this phenomenal inventor whose work is still being brought into
fruition to transform our world -- again. (GreaterThings; Feb.

today parallel the Jews
anciently. The Jews
were looking for a government
of God (second coming) but were given the gospel
and rejected it. The Gentile
people of God in these latter days are preoccupied with the gospel
(first coming) but were destined to build on that foundation
and establish a free government.
Instead, they are building Satan's New World Order of forced
benevolence and contrived peace. A remnant
will repent, call upon God mightily, and build Zion, which
includes both the spiritual life and a temporal kingdom.

That you might take responsibility for yourself
"We have heard men who hold the priesthood remark
that they would do anything they were told to do by those who preside over
them -- even if they knew it was wrong. But such obedience as this is worse
than folly to us. It is slavery in the extreme. The man who would thus
willingly degrade himself should not claim a rank among intelligent beings
until he turns from his folly.
"A man of God would despise this idea. Others, in the
extreme exercise of their almighty authority have taught that such obedience
was necessary, and that no matter what the Saints were told to do by their
presidents, they should do it without any questions.
"When Elders [leaders] of Israel will so far indulge
in these extreme notions of obedience as to teach them to the people, it is
generally because they [the leaders] have it in their hearts to do wrong

OF THE FIRSTBORN
The Church of
the Firstborn is not an earthly denomination but a general description
of that community of believers who attain communion through the veil
with Almighty God him(&her)self and the holy angelic hosts. It
consists of humble men and women who have sought God diligently to the
point of coming into his very presence and being called after the holy
order of God, that they might be princes of peace, preachers of
righteousness in carry forth God's work on the earth.
The Church of
the Firstborn umbrella also consists of those who make this attainment
their entire focus (seek and ye shall find), thanks to but not dependent
upon denominational affiliations.
is wholly designed to support this quest, that the Lord may be our God,
and we may be his people.
