- Subject: RE: What are great spiritual deceptions of the last days;
This I thought was right on as far as doctrinally correct and I flagged it with a like. When I went to your sight for your church I went first to your articles of faith and I noticed some things that are not quite scripturally pure.
I would like to discuses some of them with you and share why I think you might have gotten off the narrow path to the strait gate: (Mt.7:12-14) for example; The good Apostle Paul which was called of Jesus Christ to become an Apostle baptized the same as they who were Jesus’ disciples from the beginning and were chosen and had been with Him from the beginning, which most people get wrong in thinking that is what makes an Apostle of Jesus Christ; if that were the case Paul would not have been able to call himself an Apostle of Jesus Christ, so that being with Jesus from the beginning is not the correct assumption for being qualified to become and Apostle. Paul had a calling and his gifting from the Lord’s own Holy Spirit filled Paul for his gifting. I know it sounds like maybe I’m getting off track and chasing a rabbit trail but bear with me and I will tie all the loose ends together I promise.
You were so right when you talked about people getting caught up in religion and falling into covetousness of falling in love with Pastors and Teachers and even a denomination instead of the word of God and Sola Scriptura or scripture only. In a comment you made while speaking about your sermon in the title above. People sometimes get involved in rituals or tradition rather than adhering to the word of God only! For example I noticed in your articles of faith that you baptize in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Do you recite this before you baptize these converts or do you actually call out the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit being these are just titles of the same person or do you do as our heavenly apostles have instructed us because they knew Jesus is the Father, Jn.14:7-9, Jn.12:45 when we see Jesus we see the one who sent Him, Jesus is the Father made flesh as seen in scripture, 1 Tm.3:16; therefore we too are instructed to do all things in the name of Jesus Christ, Co.3:17! This is exactly what the apostles did in Acts to show us how to correctly baptize our converts because they knew Jesus was BOTH Lord and the Christ, Ac.2:36 as well as Lord of ALL, Ac..10:36, When we understand that Jesus told us exactly who God the Father is in Jn.4:24 that God is a Spirit and that Spirit created Him a bodily vessel as seen in Heb.10: 5Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me: 6In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure. Therefore God the Holy Spirit for there is but one good as spoken by Jesus Himself in Mt.19:17; Mk.10:18 and lastly Lk.18:19. Jesus knew quite well who He was and why He had been manifested or incarnated Himself to be flesh, all man and all God, who was the Spirit in Him, see Mt.3:17 the Holy Spirit said from heaven to confirm to John the Baptist this is who in fact, I said you were to prepare the way for as we look to Is.40: 3The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Not the third person of any supposively holy trinity started by a bunch of Nicolaitans in the third and fourth and ratified in the sixth century by a bunch of so called Catholic Priests who put themselves over all the laity as their rulers instead of like the Apostles who conferred with all the congregation (presbytery elders) in their councils at Jerusalem! The Roman Catholic Church started this doctrine while changing times and seasons according to their reasoning to allow more pagans to attend their love feasts, while they worshipped martyrs and Apostles and even their own saints bones. This is called out for us in many articles and books of the so called church fathers called the papist, here is one set of books that goes into these details: History of the Christian Church by Phillip Schaff for one there are many that reveal the same thing as I was saying I’m not alone on this.
The Apostles gave us more than ample examples of how we are to conduct these baptisms, Ac.2:38; 8:14Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John: 15Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost: 16(For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.) 17Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost. Ac.10: 44While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word. 45And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost. 46For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then answered Peter, 47Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we? 48And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord: Then prayed they him to tarry certain days. We even see this in Ac.19:1And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples, 2He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost. 3And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, Unto John’s baptism. 4Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus. 5When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus: 6And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied. 7And all the men were about twelve.
Who are we or the Catholic Church to disregard Apostolic teachings with our own; the Holy Bible is very clear on this, we are not to add to it or take away from it or we too are an unworthy teacher teaching false doctrines and rituals based on ungodly principles based by men and not those who really had the keys to heaven which were the Apostles, only does a man of God have any authority at all is when we keep exactly to the word of God itself and not of men; who allowed the scriptures to be translated by a Deist, for one as in Tyndale, which they burned at the stake for heresy and political reasons which were related to the King of England but yet they still accepted more than 90% of his translations in what is now the KJV. Tyndale had pressures on all sides on how he was to translate this work and you can read it yourself in the original how he could have used words to fit as many of the then doctrines of the Roman Catholic Church or be run down as a heretic which he was; he believed that God created all mankind and the Universe and took off never to interfere with it again: Which is not a far stretch to Pantheism or even Tritheism as this so call holy trinity. Zech.14:9And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one. We see this over 500 years before Jesus ever walked on the earth in the flesh; Zech.12: 10And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, this is exactly what the Holy Spirit said which is God our Lord Jesus; they will look upon Me whom they have pierced! This was spoken of by the Apostle Peter as well; 2 Pt.1:19We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: 20Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 21For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. The Apostles had a more sure testimony because they had been with God in the flesh and knew His name was Jesus who is both LORD and THE CHRIST! Peter revealed that the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Jesus Christ in 1 Pt.1:10Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you: 11Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow. Even Jesus Himself revealed this as seen in the Book of Revelation; as we see in Rev.19:10And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. Jesus is the Spirit of Prophecy and anyone born-again of God not man (Jn.1:12-13) as seen in Jn.3:3-8 Has the Holy Spirit which will lead him into all truths, this is the same Spirit which the world cannot receive because it knows not who Jesus really is; There is only one clause in the whole Bible who we are not to blaspheme and that is God and His name because His name is Spirit, that which is Spirit is spirit, Jn.3:6That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. That which is flesh and bone is a living soul which was created by God, Is.57:16 which God created when He blew the Spirit into man and made him a living being! Even Jesus knew the flesh was nothing, He was offering up His blood for our propitiation so that we could have His grace which is His words applied to our lives, Ac.20:32And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified. This is what Jesus was trying to tell us in Jn.6:63It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. We are bought with the blood of God; you past over this scripture and didn’t even realize it in your sermon; Ac.20:28Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. Jesus’ blood redeemed us the blood of God who is the Holy Spirit manifested in the flesh, 1 Tm.3:16And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.
Mt.12:31Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. 32And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come. This is the only sin that is not forgivable, in this age or the next see Mk.3:28Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme: 29But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation. 30Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit. Lk.12:9But he that denieth me before men shall be denied before the angels of God. 10And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven. Jesus said the word of God cannot be broken; Jn.10:30-35 because Jesus and God are one in the same! If we do not understand this then we too are not worshipping in truth and in His Spirit and have not received Him! Jesus told this very clearly in Jn.8:24I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I AM [he], ye shall die in your sins. Every time the Israelites (Sanhedrin) heard this “I Am” phrase coming out of Jesus’ own mouth, they picked up stones, why, because He was telling them exactly who He was! Jesus made sure they knew it too; look to verse; 58Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, “I AM”. There is but one I Am in the Bible and that was explained to us in Ex.3:14! This is why they picked up stones; Jesus was claiming to be God in the flesh, which He was, Mt.1: 23Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, “God with us!” 59Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by. What did Jesus do here? Did He pass through by being invisible as a Spirit or did He do another miracle and change His appearance so they could not recognize Him? We don’t know but the Apostles did, that is why these false doctrines of the Papist got into the Church of the living God because they didn’t listen to the Apostles who knew perfectly who God in Jesus was reconciling the world unto Himself as seen in scripture not man. 2 Cor.5:14For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: 15And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again. 16Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more. 17Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 18And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; 19To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. 20Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God. 21For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. Only God has not any sin who is the Holy Spirit which was inside Jesus Christ, this is why Jesus said on the cross My God My God why have you forsaken Me; God had to lay all the sin of the world upon Jesus’ body and there was no way Jesus could take up or lay down His life until the Holy Spirit left Him temporarily: Jesus knew all this beings He is God in the flesh, He knew why He was born at the Age of 12; Lk.2:49And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s business? Who was Jesus’ Father but the Holy Spirit who hovered over Mary as He did at the beginning of time, Gen.1:1-2 and God said let there be light, Jesus is that light, Jn.8:12 the light came to the world even His own and they comprehended it not! Not too much has changed as far as I can see it from back then! Those words “My God My God why have you forsaken Me” are prophetic, they are intended for those who think they are in righteousness but have missed the mark because of an impure heart; 2 Tm.2:19-22 or even Mt.7:15-23 or even this one Lk.6:46! God changes not, read Deu.10:1-22 He is the same today and requires nothing less than full dependence on His every word, we fail most miserably if we rely not on Him and His Truths!
This is why Jesus allowed John the Baptist to baptize Him, the word of God cannot be broken, it must continue on through the Old to the New Testament without being broken and it must all be translated to not only give God in Jesus Christ all glory or we have the incorrect exegesis, or hematology and hermeneutics. Jesus is the Glory of God in human form, Is.42:8I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images. Is.48:11For mine own sake, even for mine own sake, will I do it: for how should my name be polluted? and I will not give my glory unto another. Jesus said this in Jn.11:40Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God? Did not the Apostle Paul tell us yet again who God was in Jesus? 2 Cor.4:6For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. Jesus Himself again told us clearly if we will only listen to the Holy Spirit; Jesus said we look to the scriptures for SALVATION and they are of Me, Jn.5:39 and people will not come to only Him because some group of so called Priests said God must be three persons so the pagans will believe in us and come to our churches or we will have to kill them, and they set about doing just that, which is entirely against the word of God, so I guess we can see that they were not the true church of the living God in Christ Jesus were they, Ro.2:4Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance? Ro.12:1I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 2And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. See also the ending of this chapter; 16Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits. 17Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. 18If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. 19Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. 20Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. 21Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good. The Roman Catholic Church has never been of one mind let alone in keeping all scripture according to the doctrines handed down to them from the Apostles now have they? This is who gave us their unholy trinity! God is one and there is no other God that has been or will ever be, yes He says I know no other god besides Me! (Is.44: & 45) We do not get to add one word to this Holy Bible or take one word away from it, Deu.4:2 and Rev.22:18-19 because God changes not, Num.23:19; Mal.3:6; Heb.13:8 all scripture must bring glory to God and cannot come into conflict with another from Gen to Rev. or we have the wrong interpretation of it! Even Jesus said it is one of the most important commandments; Mt.12:28And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all? 29And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: 30And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. 31And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself (You see when God became flesh, He became our brother as well as God; Paul knew this and said when we have loved our brothers as ourselves we have fuflilled all the law, Ro.13:8; Gal.5:14; When we do these things to the least of these, we do them unto the Lord Jesus, Mt.25:31-40!). There is none other commandment greater than these. 32And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he: 33And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices (1 Sam.15:1-23 see verse 29!). 34And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. And no man after that durst ask him any question.
You see Jesus knew who He was and He told the scribe so much truth when He said you are not far from the Kingdom of God because the Kingdom of God was standing right in front of him! Look to Mt.4:17; Mt.12:28But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you. And to Luke he says it a little differently but is still in harmony to who Jesus is beings He is God in the flesh; Lk.11:20But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you. Who’s finger was Jesus using? Being God is a Spirit and has no fingers or hands and is in no need of them because all He has to do is just think and it is as good as being spoken, which is a metaphor when it says that Jesus is at the right hand of God, just as it was a metaphor for Joseph to sit at the right hand of the Pharaoh; it means to sit in all authority and in power just as Jesus said He was in Mt.28:18And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. By who did Jesus receive this power from? This question is answered in scripture not me; let us look to Jn.14:7If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him. 8Philip saith unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us. 9Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father? 10Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. 11Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake.
The so called holy trinity says that Jesus is not the father and the father is not Jesus and the Holy Spirit is not Jesus or the Father but it is clearly seen that the Father or God the Father is in Jesus Christ because He doeth the works so how can the Father be in Christ Jesus unless the Father is the Holy Spirit living inside Jesus doing the works! Did not the Holy Spirit conceive Jesus? Yes. Mt.1:20But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. God the Father is the Holy Spirit, without the Spirit you are dead and it is said you gave up the ghost! God is a Spirit Jn.4:24 this refutes the Roman Catholics claims that the mystery of the holy trinity is unexplainable, it maybe for them; not for us who have Him living in us, which the world cannot receive because it knows Him not Jn.14:15If ye love me, keep my commandments. 16And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever; 17Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not (Jn.1:17 Grace and Truth came by Jesus Christ!), neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. 18I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. Only they who know who Jesus really is have His true Holy Ghost living in them, this was promised to us because we adhere to all scripture not man’s theology, doctrines, rituals, or tradition of fools who bluff excommunication of everyone who will not knuckle under their authority as they disrepute even the words of our Apostles with their heretical Dogma! Anything that is of a lie will be revealed to us and even the things done in the dark will be shouted from the rooftops; it’s about time we start doing it! That is why we baptize in the glorious name of Jesus Christ for if we ask anything in His name He will do it, Jn.14:14 see that is the reason people are healed in that name because there can be no other name by which salvation comes to us but in that name! Ac.4:12Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. It makes all the difference to obey a commandment instead of just reciting a verse over someone at baptism thinking it will be honored just because you were following tradition and a man made ritual, Jesus is that name of the Father (Jn.5:43) the Son (being the adopted son of King David so God’s commandment of the sure mercies of David would live on through eternity as seen in 2 Sa.22 and chapter 23!) and of the Holy Spirit (Jn.14:26 whom the Father will send in My name!) by the power of the Holy Spirit who is the perfect will of God in His word, Mt.12:46While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him. 47Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee. 48But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren? 49And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! 50For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother. Jesus is that word made flesh (The perfest will of the Father in Jesus Christ!), Jn.1:14 and in many manuscripts in verse 18 of Jn.1; it says the begotten God who is in the bosom of the Father, not another person but God’s own Spirit which Jesus went to become again! See Jn.16:26At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you: 27For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God. 28I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: AGAIN, I leave the world, and go to the Father. 29His disciples said unto him, Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb. We have no authority to change one doctrine handed down to us from the Apostles, they alone knew who Jesus was, that He was just as it was told to Joseph by the Angle of God that Jesus was to be God with us our Immanuel! Is.7:14; Is.9:6 the Mighty God; Is.40:3 We too are to prepare the way for our God and His next coming! This is how we become Apostles the called and chosen ones, for many are called but few will be chosen, Mt.7:13-14; 20:16; and 22:14 because not one dot or title will be changed or be done away with till all of the Lord’s word will be fulfilled, Mt.5:17-20 and again Mt.24:35 because Jesus changes not, Heb.13:8!
I don’t care who we think we are; we will all face the judgment seat of our great God and King of kings and LORD of lords; Phil.2:10That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 11And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. 12Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. 13For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. 14Do all things without murmurings and disputings: 15That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world; 16Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain. Or our worship our salvation our whole life will be in vain; it takes all scripture living in our lives: 2 Tm.3:14But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; 15And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. Did we get the true Holy Ghost that comes with fire or did we get the other gospel that Paul talked about which is not a gospel; if we or anyone preach any other gospel they are accursed four times, once in Deu.4:2 once in Gal.1:8 & 9 and once in Rev.22:18-19! That is the reason Jesus said we must be born-again of the water (correctly) and receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit, it is a supernatural event with supernatural gifts accompanying His Spirit in you; as seen just as it was written in Ac.2:1-4 and confirmed in them who had received it who Paul was talking to in the Epistles; it was to people who had been confirmed with signs following; 1 Cor.1:1Paul called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, and Sosthenes our brother, 2Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and our’s: 3Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. 4I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ; 5That in everything ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge; 6Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you: 7So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ: (Jms.1:16-17), 8Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord. 10Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing; and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment. Eph.5:26That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, 27That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. Because we have been baptized correctly or Paul would have left the disciples of John the Baptist alone if it didn’t matter, Ac.19:1-7! We must be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ to receive His repentance of what all sinners must face if not justified in His eyes not man’s but His eyes (Ac.11:15-18) that is why we must have His ordinances placed over us His way (1 Cor.6:11); God made sure the Israelites worshipped Him His way in the wilderness or you end up like Nadab and Abihu in the fire of God’s Hell forever more, where the worm dieth not an you become the fuel for the fire, Eze.21:31-32 and Eze.22:30-31!
I wrote a Bible lesson called Man lost his Salvation not knowing the true definition to two words; Grace and Understanding. You can find it at my blog-sight at http://garylordway.wordpress.com or write to me at GaryLordsWay@aol.com and I can send you my book free of charge, it was freely given to me by the Holy Spirit and I cannot receive something which is not my own. I hope these things have brought you some light; if not, I hope you will forgive my arrogance, writing to one of God’s own children of faith!
As always, God bless; your humble servant:
