The apostle Malm is going overboard in trying to legitimize himself in the eyes of his acolytes. He has predicted the endtimes to start later in this year. That the current Pope will die and will be replaced at the end of this year with a mean old nasty Pope that hates the US and who will then walk onto the Temple Mount triggering the end. Apostle Malm sees his ministry as so earth shattering significant that he is now comparing himself to Paul, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.
Apparently apostle Malm is getting really ticked that his followers are not supporting him as much as he thinks they should. He compares himself to Paul where Paul felt the need to correct his followers that they were not doing their fair share. The apostle also uses this to compare himself to the man who was supporting Paul so much that he became ill. Apostle Malm is suffering horribly from diabetes and is wearing himself out begin such an important apostle. So get off you butts and support this magnificent man who is the only person on the face of the earth who has the balls to preach the truth.
Phillipians 2:23, “Him therefore I hope to send presently, as soon as I shall see how it will go with me. But I trust in the Lord that I also myself shall come shortly. Yet I suppose it necessary to send unto you Epaphroditus, my brother and companion in labor and fellow soldier, but your messenger, and he that ministered to my wants; for he longed after you all and was full of heaviness because you had heard that he had been sick. For indeed he was sick and near to death, but God had mercy on him. And not on him only, but on me also, lest I should have sorrow upon sorrow.”
This person was very ill, and when he recovered and he found out how much his illness had distressed others, he himself was very distressed over that..
“For indeed he was sick and near unto death, but God had mercy upon him and not on him only, but God had mercy upon me, lest I should have sorrow upon sorrow. I sent him therefore, the more carefully that when you should see him again, you may rejoice, and that I may be the less sorrowful.”
That is, when I know that you see him recovered, you will be happy and that will also make me happy, that you are happy.
“Receive him therefore in the Lord with all gladness and hold such in reputation because for the work of Christ he was near unto death, not regarding his life to supply your lack of service toward me.”
This is a very important statement here. Paul is saying that this man was serving me to the point where he became so ill that he nearly died because he was making up for your lack of help and your lack of support.
This is a very special person and notice here very carefully, how Paul is a very carefully and very diplomatically pointing out to these Philippians that they were not giving him the support they should and that one fellow was acting to support him, to help him in every way and that one person made up for the lack of support from this whole group, and he was trying to inform these people and shame this people into realizing their lack of boldness in Christ and their fearfulness that being associated with Paul and supporting Paul, the prisoner.
This is about Paul being imprisoned and in bonds and these people in Philippi, being afraid to support him and being afraid to boldly stand up and preach the Gospel, lest they also be imprisoned.
Paul is very carefully and diplomatically pointing out to them that they need to be bold for the things of Christ. They need to be bold for the Gospel. They should not be afraid. They should be fearless and with great courage, stand on the Word of God. Stand on the rock of Jesus Christ because it is God and Christ who are able to save them ultimately from destruction. And men cannot do anything to them unless God permits it and God can save them, and if he chooses not to, he will raise them up on that day.
Go and see what I have published today at the News Site. Jesus Christ did not shrink back from telling the truth to power and neither will I. If we speak what God has commanded us to preach; we will have our problems, but God is backing us up. If we do and teach what we think is right; God will NOT back us up and we are on our own.
I stand with Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego; It is better to die serving my God, than to live serving any other!
