Our spiritual looneys is a rich one with many illustrious names stretching back to the earliest centuries we started this journey tracing our spiritual lineage with the Celtic Church in Britain we saw that as early as the fifth and sixth centuries and the last thing to the twelfth century there were Christians who were trying to maintain a faith based on their understanding of God's Word the world then the entire northern Italy were another such a group who could trace the origins centuries back the faith and belief of groups such as these stood in conflict with the claims from Rome that they were them of the church and so they sought to either convert or destroy them. In an era of immense darkness John Wycliffe a Rolls the Morning Star Wars they did not start a new church by translating the Bible and through his teachings he was able to peel back the layers of night that had descended during the Dark Ages John Wycliffe was followed by us and Jerome two brave men in Prague a century later mocked and moved to our roles in Germany swindling in Switzerland Pharrell and Calvin in France and then Switzerland all great men who went against the grain and remained true to their convictions. In Britain William Tyndale would produce a beautiful translation of the Bible something that would cost him his life it was not an easy time to. Be a believer but slowly and surely the light was beginning to shine proverbs for verse eighteen says that the path of the just is as a shining light that shines ever brighter and to the perfect day meaning that when God reveals truth to us whether individually or collectively he does it bit by bit the sun does not just appear in the morning but it comes over the horizon gradually and so gaunt gives us truth invites size pieces and so with the church each Reforma built on the steps of those who had come before them. The truth of justification sanctification baptism Christian charity freedom and the second coming all came back gradually each of the reformers did not always agree with each other but God used each one at the dark ages ended in seven hundred ninety eight with the close of the twelve hundred sixty year prophecy and as the world ends of the time period known at the time of the end the prophecy said that knowledge would increase this is not to be interpreted of knowledge of science or technology but knowledge of the books of the Bible in particular Daniel and Revelation would be unveiled as we neared the end. Despite the huge gains that had taken place during the Reformation Revelation twelve points out that after the woman or the church would come out of persecution at the end of the twelve hundred sixty years prophecy that God would have a remnant at the end of time a remnant who was Revelation twelve verse seventeen points out would keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus but who would this be and how would God lead his people in the nineteenth. Twentieth and twenty first centuries join us next season as we continue this journey and explore our spiritual lineage through time.
