Are you Condemned or Approved?
Am I talking to One Eternally Saved or One Eternally Damned and in Shame?
Dan.12: 1And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
2And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt!
These are those times my friends!
Ac.3:17And now, brethren, I wot that through ignorance ye did it, as did also your rulers.
18But those things, which God before had shewed by the mouth of all his prophets, that Christ should suffer, he hath so fulfilled.
19Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.
20And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you:
21Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.
22For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you.
23And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people.
It takes all of Jesus’ word living in us to be called a child of God! Or you perish worshipping God your way instead of His way which is His word to us, that is how we know His mind, 1 Cor.2:1-16 which is His Spirit to us; Jn.6:63, for every man, and woman will be held accountable to His word, as to whether we kept it or not, Phil.2:12, therefore tremble and know that you will one day very soon see the man our God Jesus as I did; and trust me on this, I too Trembled in His Presence; He is a consuming fire, Heb.12:29 and His children better be on fire for Him as well or they will not be able to stand in His presence, Ps.104:4 and Heb.1:7, that is what Jesus was telling the church in Rev.3:13He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
14And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write: These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
15I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
16So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
17Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
18I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. (Jesus is giving them a chance to repent He warned them as I do today Repent and do the first works or perish in condemnation in eternal shame, Dan.12:2!)
19As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent (Jn.16:33).
20Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
21To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
22He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
Unless we overcome this wicked world we live in we have not become an overcomer as seen here! Know the word of God and keep it or fall by the wayside as the seed that was caught up in the cares of this world! There were four seed sown only one made it to maturity, that is only 25% of the seed sown; are you going to one of those? Mt.7:13-14; Mt.20:16 and Mt.22:14 many are called but few will be these; 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.
That are truly cleansed by the word of God living in you as you become a living temple of God for Him to walk in, 2 Cor.6:14-18 because you have been cleansed by His word which is His Spirit living inside you after you have been baptized in the water of regeneration as seen in Tit.3:1Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work,
2To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men.
3For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.
4But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared,
5Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;
6Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour;
7That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
8This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men.
We have a hope of salvation, why do we hope? Because we have not seen it just yet; we have a promise of eternal life with Jesus our LORD GOD! But it is up to us to live our lives as Jesus did because He alone is the way the truth and the life we all must lead or we only fool ourselves to Hell, worshipping God our way instead of His way, which is not our way, see Is.55:6Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:
7Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
8For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
9For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. And verse; 11So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it! Was it sent for you? Jn.6:44 No man come to Me, except the Father which hath sent Me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day! Is this going to be you?
This is exactly what Jesus said in Mt.24:35 and if we think we can get rid of one verse out of this Holy Bible think again, Deu.4:1; 12:32; or we teach another gospel we are condemning ourselves, Gal.1:8-9 as we see also in Rev.22:18-19!
These are not just words and verses they are life and death to them who walk in them or disregard them as so many do Mt.4:4; Jn.6:63; I suggest you look them up and read them and start living them, children of God called by His name; Lk.6:46; Mt.7:15-23, that is the reason Jesus gave us the parable following these very verses!
If we do not study this word and show ourselves approved of rightly dividing the word of God according to His interpretation of them in the context that He meant, or we only deceive ourselves to Hell! That is the least place of the Kingdom of God, talked about by Jesus in Mt.5:17Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 18For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. 19Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: (which is on the other side of that gulf no man can pass over seen in Lk.16:19-31!): but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.
Without Holiness Heb.12:14 and Righteousness that exceeds the scribes and the Pharisees who studied this word and knew it by heart, we will not enter in because we are no better than them because we have head knowledge but the word of God is not in our heart’s; our minds being lived out in our lives as required by scripture, 2 Cor.6:14Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
15And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
16And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
17Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.
18And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
If you are friends with this word you are an enemy of God just that simple, Jms.4:4 because the world belongs to the devil the prince of the air due to sin, see 1 Jn.2:14-17 and 1 Jn.5:19; unless we know the one true God in Jesus, 1 Jn.5:20 we are just like those the Apostle John warned us of doing, in the very next verse, worshipping idols not knowing who Jesus really is because we do not understand that Jesus is the I Am, Jn.8:58; the same I Am as seen in Ex.3:14 is seen 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! Therefore we had better be doing some things we see in this very chapter of the Holy Word of God; as seen in these following verses, Jn.8:31Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; 32And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. We cannot worship in Spirit and in Truth as required by scripture unless we know who God really is as shown in Is.40:3 and Mt.3:3; which is also shown here in Jn.8:47He that is of God heareth God’s words: and 51Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death. Are we keeping His saying or are they just words to ponder? How are we really living our lives for Jesus, after all He is; Jn.14:6Jesus saith unto him, I AM the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. Because when we see Jesus we should know we have seen the Father also, seen in the next verses: 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.
The Father in Jesus is the Holy Spirit which is God; Jn.4:24 God is a Spirit and Jesus should know being He is God in the flesh as seen here in scripture yet again, 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. This is the only way we can come to terms with 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! The Holy Spirit which is God made us overseers of the church of God which He purchased with His own blood! 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. Is that not what the last Old Testament Prophet of God did in Mt.3:3For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. Sounds like it to me! He made a pathway for our God to be found in, who also showed us what we must do to follow Him, Jesus had no sin, He was in no need of repentance of sins and baptism! Jesus was tying the Old Testament word of God to the New Testament showing us the word of God cannot be broken, Jn.10:35 and that God changes not, and never will, Num.23:19; Mal.3:6, Mt.5:17-18; Mt.24:35; Jn.8:51; Jn.15:1-ffs; Heb.13:8 because God cannot lie, Tit.1:1-2 and Heb.6:17-18 so that we would know the true God in Jesus reconciling the world unto Himself seen yet again in scripture, 2 Cor.5:19-21 so we can be the righteousness of God in Jesus; because we are supposed to be building our bodies into a living memorial to Jesus Christ who gave His all for us as we too honor Him in the very same way and give Him our lives, just as He has shown us to live it. Mt.16:24Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. 25For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. 26For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? As well as the gospel’s sake seen in Mk.8:34And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
35For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it.
36For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
37Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
38Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.
These are requirements to follow our God in Jesus Christ or we will be as these: Mt.10:32Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.
33But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
34Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
35For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
36And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.
37He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
38And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me! (They worship God their way which is not God’s way, seen in scripture! They compare themselves to the world that lies in wickedness and not to God’s standards, which is His word to us!)
39He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.
40He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.
41He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward. (That is what I’m doing today my friends; warning an untoward generation!)
42And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.
If we do not put away the cares of this world and center our lives directly on Jesus Christ we only fool ourselves into complacency that leads to perpetual backsliding because we failed to continue to grow in the knowledge of Jesus Christ our LORD of lords and KING of kings shown guess where? In scripture yet again, as we look to 2 Pt.3:18But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever. Amen!
These scriptures are for our edification shown in 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.
When Paul wrote this the New Testament did not exist, Paul was showing us as well as Timothy that all scripture the New Testament and especially the Old Testament is the word of God and has not changed what we are to do; we are to live the word of God or be found in presumptuous sin as the sinner who was picking up sticks seen in Numbers chapter 15: 15One ordinance shall be both for you of the congregation, and also for the stranger that sojourneth with you, an ordinance forever in your generations: as ye are, so shall the stranger be before the LORD.
16One law and one manner shall be for you, and for the stranger that sojourneth with you.
17And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
18Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye come into the land whither I bring you,
19Then it shall be, that, when ye eat of the bread of the land, ye shall offer up an heave offering unto the LORD.
20Ye shall offer up a cake of the first of your dough for an heave offering: as ye do the heave offering of the threshing floor, so shall ye heave it.
21Of the first of your dough ye shall give unto the LORD an heave offering in your generations.
22And if ye have erred, and not observed all these commandments, which the LORD hath spoken unto Moses,
23Even all that the LORD hath commanded you by the hand of Moses, from the day that the LORD commanded Moses, and henceforward among your generations;
24Then it shall be, if ought be committed by ignorance without the knowledge of the congregation, that all the congregation shall offer one young bullock for a burnt offering, for a sweet savour unto the LORD, with his meat offering, and his drink offering, according to the manner, and one kid of the goats for a sin offering.
25And the priest shall make an atonement for all the congregation of the children of Israel, and it shall be forgiven them; for it is ignorance: and they shall bring their offering, a sacrifice made by fire unto the LORD, and their sin offering before the LORD, for their ignorance:
26And it shall be forgiven all the congregation of the children of Israel, and the stranger that sojourneth among them; seeing all the people were in ignorance. (Are we not grafted into this same vine? Are we not sojourners on the way to a promised land?
If we sin through ignorance we can be forgiven and repent to Jesus and He will surely forgive us of our sins if we do this; 1 Jn.2:1My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: 2And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. 3And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. 4He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. 6He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked! Are we walking as Jesus walked?)
27And if any soul sin through ignorance, then he shall bring a she goat of the first year for a sin offering.
28And the priest shall make an atonement for the soul that sinneth ignorantly, when he sinneth by ignorance before the LORD, to make an atonement for him; and it shall be forgiven him.
29Ye shall have one law for him that sinneth through ignorance, both for him that is born among the children of Israel, and for the stranger that sojourneth among them.
30But the soul that doeth ought presumptuously, whether he be born in the land, or a stranger, the same reproacheth the LORD; and that soul shall be cut off from among his people. 31Because he hath despised the word of the LORD, and hath broken his commandment, that soul shall utterly be cut off; his iniquity shall be upon him!
32And while the children of Israel were in the wilderness, they found a man that gathered sticks upon the sabbath day.
33And they that found him gathering sticks brought him unto Moses and Aaron, and unto all the congregation.
34And they put him in ward, because it was not declared what should be done to him.
35And the LORD said unto Moses, The man shall be surely put to death: all the congregation shall stone him with stones without the camp! Presumptuous sin will not and never will be permissible, Mal.3:6!
36And all the congregation brought him without the camp, and stoned him with stones, and he died; as the LORD commanded Moses.
37And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
38Speak unto the children of Israel, and bid them that they make them fringes in the borders of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the fringe of the borders a rib-band of blue:
39And it shall be unto you for a fringe, that ye may look upon it, and remember all the commandments of the LORD, and do them ; and that ye seek not after your own heart and your own eyes, after which ye use to go a whoring:
40That ye may remember, and do all my commandments, and be holy unto your God! Jesus is our potentate sacrifice, done once and for forever, we have an advocate that will always plead our case, and whoever Has His name in Justified as long as that person has His Spirit in them; which leads them into all truths, 1 Cor.6:11!
41I am the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: I am the LORD your God. Moses said God would raise one up like unto him and if we do not walk in His words we too shall perish;
Deu.18:13Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God. (See Gen.17:1; Mt.5:48 carried over to the New Testament, Eph.5:27! Jn.8:51!)
14For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for thee, the LORD thy God hath not suffered thee so to do.
15The LORD thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken;
16According to all that thou desiredst of the LORD thy God in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, Let me not hear again the voice of the LORD my God, neither let me see this great fire any more, that I die not.
17And the LORD said unto me, They have well spoken that which they have spoken.
18I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. 19And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him. That is God speaking here not Moses! This was done of all the Old Testament prophets as well as John the Baptist as well as Jesus, who carried forth the New Testament, because Jesus is the word of God in the flesh, Jn.1:1-14 and is the embodiment of the Spirit of Prophecy seen in Rev.19:10; therefore worship God in Jesus Christ who is both Lord and the Christ, Ac.2:36 and Ac.10:36 says He is LORD of ALL! If we want to see the glory of God, all we need to do is look in the face of Jesus, 2 Cor.4:6!
Jesus is the bread of life the eternal bread of life if we live and walk in Him and He in us, because we are the temple of God seen in 1 Cor.3:16Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 17If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are. 1 Cor.6:19What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? 20For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s. Eph.4:30And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.
We are not our own, we have been purchased by the very blood of God, Ac.20:28! Therefore we walk in conduct as worthy children of God; which is by His living word living in His Elect; His Chosen and Ordained Jn.15:16Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain( are you one of the truly chosen or do you just call yourself by His name? Are you bearing His fruits?): that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
17These things I command you, that ye love one another.
18If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.
19If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
20Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. Are we keeping His Apostles words that were given to bind on earth and to loosen on earth or to do the same in Heaven? If not we have failed to live according to His word which will result in our damnation; living in our own self deluded vain imaginations of what we think God wants for us, instead of what He really said to do, this is what the Apostle John was saying in 1 Jn.5:21 because we have made a vain attempt to worship a God which is in our own imaginations, that is idolatry! We are not doing as Jesus said to do in Jn.4:24God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
If we have not His Holy Spirit in us with signs given for this very reason to know and to see that something supernatural has come upon man who has been baptized into God’s own Supernatural Spirit as seen in scripture yet again; Ac.2:1-4; 8:14-17; 10:44-48; 11:15-18, that God had given them His gift of repentance, that they all had received as at the beginning; as well as the Apostle Paul has shown us in Ac.19:1-7! These are the ones who the Epistles were written to because they had it confirmed in them; that they too had received the Holy Spirit the same as the Apostles had, with signs or gifts following; seen in 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 (Holy, look it up in the Greek a saint is one that is Holy! Means set part for the use of our God, something consecrated unto God, for His use only!), 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:
8Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. (If we abide in Him and His word to us, Jn.14:15 and 15:1-ffs! Or you throw it all away on your own as Esau did, by being self willed and not carrying for your inheritance Mal.1:3; Ro.9:13; Mt.12:31-32 and 46-50!)
9God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
This carries over into our dress and conduct as well!
They had fellowship with the Lord and it was confirmed in them because the Lord equips those who He calls into His service; who have received His words as they too follow Paul who imitates Jesus in His life, 1 Cor.11:1Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.
2Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you.
3But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.
4Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoureth his head.
5But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven.
6For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered. Dan.12:2 on what a shame is!
7For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.
8For the man is not of the woman: but the woman of the man.
9Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.
10For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels.
11Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord.
12For as the woman is of the man, even so is the man also by the woman; but all things of God.
13Judge in yourselves: is it comely that a woman pray unto God uncovered?
14Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?
15But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering. Why would nay woman want to give up her glory given to her from God?
16But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God. If anyone be contentious means you had better do a bible study of that word and find out what our Lord thinks is contentious; I suggest you start at 1 Sam.15:1-ffs especially these: 10Then came the word of the LORD unto Samuel, saying,
11It repenteth me that I have set up Saul to be king: for he is turned back from following me, and hath not performed my commandments. And it grieved Samuel; and he cried unto the LORD all night.
12And when Samuel rose early to meet Saul in the morning, it was told Samuel, saying, Saul came to Carmel, and, behold, he set him up a place, and is gone about, and passed on, and gone down to Gilgal.
13And Samuel came to Saul: and Saul said unto him, Blessed be thou of the LORD: I have performed the commandment of the LORD.
14And Samuel said, What meaneth then this bleating of the sheep in mine ears, and the lowing of the oxen which I hear?
15And Saul said, They have brought them from the Amalekites: for the people spared the best of the sheep and of the oxen, to sacrifice unto the LORD thy God; and the rest we have utterly destroyed.
16Then Samuel said unto Saul, Stay, and I will tell thee what the LORD hath said to me this night. And he said unto him, Say on.
17And Samuel said, When thou wast little in thine own sight, wast thou not made the head of the tribes of Israel, and the LORD anointed thee king over Israel?
18And the LORD sent thee on a journey, and said, Go and utterly destroy the sinners the Amalekites, and fight against them until they be consumed.
19Wherefore then didst thou not obey the voice of the LORD, but didst fly upon the spoil, and didst evil in the sight of the LORD?
20And Saul said unto Samuel, Yea, I have obeyed the voice of the LORD, and have gone the way which the LORD sent me, and have brought Agag the king of Amalek, and have utterly destroyed the Amalekites.
21But the people took of the spoil, sheep and oxen, the chief of the things which should have been utterly destroyed, to sacrifice unto the LORD thy God in Gilgal.
22And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams!
23For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king!
24And Saul said unto Samuel, I have sinned: for I have transgressed the commandment of the LORD, and thy words: because I feared the people, and obeyed their voice. Jesus said fear not what man can do to you; Mt.10:28And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
25Now therefore, I pray thee, pardon my sin, and turn again with me, that I may worship the LORD.
26And Samuel said unto Saul, I will not return with thee: for thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, and the LORD hath rejected thee from being king over Israel. 27And as Samuel turned about to go away, he laid hold upon the skirt of his mantle, and it rent. 28And Samuel said unto him, The LORD hath rent the kingdom of Israel from thee this day, and hath given it to a neighbour of thine, that is better than thou. This is what presumptuous sin brings! God changes not!
29And also the Strength of Israel will not lie nor repent: for he is not a man, that he should repent.
Samuel had seen to the day of our Lord’s return and had seen it was Jesus, a man that would not repent, for His living words of life to those who obey them or death to them who blow them off as some old fashion legend that is meaningless!
If my words have not stuck a cord in your heart them your heart is already hardened and seared over and has been given to the destroyer; who will destroy all who do not put the Blood of God over His servants body at baptism in Jesus name, for there is no other name by which salvation comes, according to His word to us seen in Ac.4:12 and everything we do and say had better be done as an oracle of God in Jesus Christ or we have done all on vain, Col.3:17! We must dress properly; we must even take care of our hair that is not our hair or beards any longer they are His because He purchased us with His own blood, if you were baptized in Jesus’ name and if not you are not justified yet still because it takes His name over you to be His seen in scripture yet again; 1 Cor.6:11And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
Without the Holy Spirit living on the inside of us we are none of His yet still as seen in Ro.8:1There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit (Jn.6:63).
2For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
3For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh (By being the word of God to us in the flesh: Which was carried out by Jesus in word and indeed, Lk.2:49!):
4That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit! (Are we walking in the righteousness of the word of God given to us for this very reason, so we could be His righteousness of God in Jesus Christ, 2 Cor.5:19-21?!)
5For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. You cannot drink form the cup of the world and the cup of God, it will not work! You will be found, and are a hypocrite, if you try it; see Mt.23 and see how Jesus felt about hypocrites!
6For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. One or the other you cannot live both ways!
7Because the carnal mind is enmity against God (Jms.4:4): for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be (Because they are being self willed and contentious!).
8So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. (God changes not!)
9But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his! (This is the regeneration seen in Tit.3:5 and 1 Cor.6:11; which is being born-again as seen in Jn.3:3-8 or you are not going to the heavenly kingdom of God!)!
10And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
11But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. (So you see you must have this Holy Spirit baptism or you are not going and have not the power of God to go and sin no more, Jn.8:11 and Jn.5:14 and a worse thing will come upon you unless you repent and live according to every word out of the mouth of Go, Mt.4:4 and Lk.4:4 which is Jesus’ words to us, Jn.6:63!)
12Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.
13For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. (Gal.5:16This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. 17For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. 18But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law: We establish the law by His righteousness in us, which is His word to us, Ac.26:19-20!)
14For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. (Jn.8:47!)
15For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
16The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: (We have been given gifts of the Holy Spirit which equips us for His service!)
17And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
It takes the Holy Spirit to lead us into all His Truths which are of Jesus Christ, Jn.15:26But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father (Jn.1:17), he shall testify of Me (Jesus): This is the only way to come to Jesus, His way; that is not man’s ways, seen in Is.55; with man this is impossible to come to God unless the Spirit of God leads Him to Jesus correctly by His every word, which is precept upon precept seen in Is.28:9Whom shall he teach knowledge? And whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. We must be mature full grown not needing milk any longer as seen in Heb.5:12For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.
13For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.
14But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil. (See 1 Jn.4:1)
10For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little: The Lord will key in on one word and allow you to follow it through the scriptures if you will allow Him to come into your heart as shown in belief believing it is for you shown here in Ac.2:38-39 and to all those who are afar off, even to as many as our Lord God shall call; are you one who wants to be called?
11For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people. Just like He showed all of us in Ac.2:1-4 as it sat on each of them and they all spoke with others tongues as the Holy Spirit gave them the utterance to do these things, for it is the gift of God’s repentance on us as seen in Ac.10:44-48; and 11:15-18!
12To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear. And yet they would not here because some preacher told them it was not for them today as it was in the days of the Apostles because they had not received it themselves; so it must not be for them! A Child of the Living God will be equipped with God’s supernatural gifts of grace seen in Ac.20:24But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God: and 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. Seen in these two verses what I was talking about; the gospel of grace which is the testimony given to us from God as seen in Rev.19:10 which is the Spirit of prophecy, which is the testimony of Jesus living in you, being baptized as shown in Mt.3:11I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance. but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire: Lk.3:16John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire: Any baptism that does not come with fire is not for us, it is from the deceiver who has a look of godliness but lack the power of God living in their lives to lead an overcoming life style as required in the word of God! It is not my words that condemn you it is the word of God! The only time these are my words is when I live them in Christ Jesus so that I might be the righteousness of God in Jesus, 2 Cor.5:21! We are only partakers of Jesus Christ when we walk as he walked to show us a right way to go! Mt.7:13Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in there at: 14Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it! Jesus is the shepherd and we had better know His voice: Jn.10:1Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.
2But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
3To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.
4And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.
5And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.
6This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them.
7Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.
8All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.
9I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
10The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
11I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
12But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.
13The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.
14I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
15As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.
16And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold (Gentile and Jew under one law or one word, enter in by the narrow gate or go the broad way that leadeth thee to destruction!), and one shepherd (One God and His name is One, Zech.14:9! Jesus said I come in My Father’s name, Jn.5:43 and that name means Salvation, I AM all that you will ever need! Jn.8:58 and 24 or you will die in your sins, not knowing who Jesus really is! Jn.14:6 ffs.)!
17Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.
18No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father. (As well as all of us who have been baptized in that name and buried in the watery grave to self, as seen in Ro.6:4 and Col.2:6-(12)-to Col.3:6- to 24Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ. 25But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons!)
19There was a division therefore again among the Jews for these sayings.
20And many of them said, He hath a devil, and is mad; why hear ye him?
21Others said, These are not the words of him that hath a devil. Can a devil open the eyes of the blind?
22And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter.
23And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon’s porch.
24Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly.
25Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness of me.
26But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.
27My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
28And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
29My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.
30I and my Father are one!
31Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him. (Because they didn’t even believe their own prophets that said God would come as a child from a virgin, Is.7:14 who is Immanuel God with us seen in Mt.1:23 conceived of the Father who is the Holy Spirit seen in Mt.1:18; and 20 and again in Lk.1:35 the power of the Highest must be God! Who is omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient! Hast to be a Spirit God seen in Gen.1:1-3 & Jn.4:24; which became the light of the world seen in Jn.8:12; 12:44-50! Who divides the confusion of darkness which is an abomination to our Lord God, which is supposed to be our Light, that has become freewill for all men to either choose light or darkness of this world’s wisdom that is just foolishness to Him who knows all! That is the reason He took on our shame because He allowed us to have freewill and in order to come to Him it must be done our of love for Him who gave His all for us, so that His creation would have a way out of the condemnation that is about to come upon all the earth and to those who are bound to the ways of mankind which are not His ways!
32Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?
33The Jews answered him, saying: For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God!
Jesus has shown us exactly who He is; our God manifested in the flesh, the Jews knew this and wanted to stone Him, because they thought it was impossible for God to become man? Mt.19:26But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them: With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible. Jesus is the Kingdom of God, Mt.4:17From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. Mt.12:28But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you. Lk.11:20But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you. Finally this last verse but I could go on and on…Lk.17:21Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you! If you have had this experience seen in Jn3:3-8! Otherwise it is not going to be well with you in the end of days!
Therefore repent and do the first works He has told us to do, Rev.2:5! Which Paul was testifying about in Ac.26:19Whereupon, O king Agrippa, I was not disobedient unto the heavenly vision: 20But shewed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance. Just as Paul was teaching Titus in Tit.3:1Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work, 2To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men. Tit.3:5Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; 6Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; 7That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. (A hope for things not yet seen! Otherwise it would not be hope for something that has already come!) 8This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works! These things are good and profitable unto men!
We cannot have good works unless we bear His fruits on us; which is His living word in our hearts; that shows up on the outside as well! We will not look like the outside world and we will not sound like the outside world sounds because we will have His anointing all over us! It will show up on us and not be denied, we will have His mark on our foreheads seen in Rev.7:3Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. We cannot be a servant of God unless we abide in His word for us, the word that the world cannot receive because they know not Him or His word to us because it is Spiritually given to those who have His Spiritual discernment~ 1 Cor.2:1-16 to have His mind! We cannot have His mind unless we live in Him and He lives in us and we live according to His word, which is given to us so we might know His mind: It’s called the Holy Bible! The most popular book in the history of man and the most owned book in America and the least read today! The one book that can bring eternal salvation when obeyed and the least one read so that we might know Him and what it is that Pleases Him, Him that is going to judge the just and the unjust, Phil.2:10 and Rev.22:10And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand. Therefore see Phil.2:12; you must work out your own salvation some preacher can’t do it for you! Some prophet can’t do it for you either, no one can but you! It has to come from your heart, no one knows the sins you need forgiveness for and it is a contract between you and God who is the forgiver of all sins, which is the one who died for them, you must seek His salvation for you, Ac.11:15-18 by His gifts given to them who received Him in a supernatural way, Ac.2:1-4; 2:38-40 ffs!
11He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.
12And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be!
13I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last!
14Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city!
15For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
Who worship God their way and not His way, Prov.14:12There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death! Proverbs were given to us for two reasons to show a right way to go and not get off the chosen path or to go the wrong way that leadeth thee to destruction! Prov.4:27Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil. Josh.1:7; 23:6-8; 11:15; Deu.5:32-33; Deu.17:20; 28:14; you cannot read Deu.28:1-68 and not see all that has been promised has come unto these people who did not keep the word of their God which is our God too! If He cursed them He will curse us too if we disobey His words to us, God is not a respecter of persons! It does not matter whether we call ourselves by His name or not, that is not what makes a Christian; it is whether we obey all His words to us, that is not going to the right hand or the left but staying in that narrow path seen in Mt.7:13-14!
16I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
Have I not told you all this before? I have testified these and many more things which are coming unto this untoward generation; beware and repent and do the first works, Rev.2:5 or He will reward you for your works either good or bad accordingly!
17And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
18For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
19And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
20He which testifieth these things saith: Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
21The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
Are you anathema or Maranatha?
Jesus said He can do nothing, it is the Father that will draw all men to him, Mt.11:24But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee. 25At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes. 26Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight. 27All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him! 28Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
Jesus sat a child on His lap and said unless we become as one of these we cannot come into the kingdom of God, a pure, sinless, innocent child of God (Mt.18:1-10)! He told the adulteress to go and sin no more in Jn.8:11 and in Jn.5:14 He told the cripple to go and sin no more unless a worse thing come upon him! I suggest we do the same, with man this is impossible but with God living in you all things then become possible; because we become one with His mind and we too are to have dominion over sin as Cain was, seen in Gen.4:7If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.
Beings the Holy Spirit has been poured out upon all flesh in these later days, (Joel2:28) the Spirit told Joel that in those last days He would bring all His children that He has called to safety, now we have to ask ourselves are we really called? We are if we have His Spirit in operation in our lives and we have the mind of Jesus Christ living in us, 1 Cor.2:1-16, then and only then do we become His servants and like their master have a higher calling and walk in life, Lk.12:48; Ecc.12:9-14! Ro.12:1I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy (Saint, means Holy in the Greek original word here, something is Holy it is set apart for our God’s use only, it is consecrated for His uses and only His uses!), acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 2And be not conformed to this world (Jms.4:4, 1 Jn.2:15-17 because the whole world lies in wickedness, 1 Jn.5:19!): but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind (Tit.1:3:5 see 1-11), that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God (Ac.17:11; Eph.5:27; Gal.4:19; Eph.4:30 and Mt.12:31-32 and 46-50!Abiding in the words of God is how we grieve not the Holy Spirit! This is exactly what Stephen said to the Sanhedrin in Ac.7:52 and then they drug him outside and stoned him as he called to heaven and pleaded for their forgiveness just as Jesus did on the cross for each of us, look what Stephen said as he called out unto God in verse 59, saying Lord Jesus receive my spirit, Stephen knew who God was, Ecc.12:7! Paul instructed Titus in the same manor, see Tit.2:10-15!). 3For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
When we humble ourselves to His word by living in His words to us; He will exalt His own whom He has called, these are the Spirits that will return unto the one who gave it, Ecc.12:7Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it. Because we have been with Him from the beginning, Jn.15:26But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me: 27And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning. God knows the end from the beginning! Jn.3:13And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven!
God has chosen the foolish things to confound the wise: 1 Cor.1:18For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. 19For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. 20Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this world? Hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? 21For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God; it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. 22For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: 23But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumbling block, and unto the Greeks foolishness; 24But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God! 25Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. 26For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: 27But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; 28And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: 29That no flesh should glory in his presence! 30But of Him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: 31That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord! How are we to do that unless we realize Jesus is God in the flesh and not some part of a man made Trinity? Jn.12:45And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me. 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. God’s glory that He said He would not give to another (Is.42:8; 48:11) seen in the very face of 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.) if they had known that they would have never killed the Lord of all glory seen in 1 Cor.2:8Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory! Jn.11:40Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God? Because when you have Jesus you then have the Kingdom of God in your presence as shown in these scriptures: Mt.4:17; Mt.12:28; Lk.11:20; Mk.12:20- 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: And finally in Lk.17:21Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you! If you have been born-again of His Holy Spirit in you, as seen in the book of Acts; for this was written for us; to know when we have received Him in our hearts and in our minds! It is His repentance to us seen in Ac.11:15-18! We can have man’s rituals all day long but it will not matter unless we have His baptism in His name that justifies us; seen in 1 Cor.6:11And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. The New testament covenant is to be buried with Jesus in the watery grave in the only name by which salvation comes and that is in Jesus’ own name seen in Ac.4:12! See Ro.6:4 and Col.2:12 this is the operation of our Great God in Jesus; reconciling the whole world unto Himself seen in 2 Cor.5:19-21 so that we can then be the righteousness of God in Jesus! This is the New Testament covenant and operations of God with His children! When we abide in His word that cleanses us seen in Jn.15:3 by the operation of His word in faith to His word we then put or beliefs into practice showing we too have faith in His words to us; that is the operation of God in us! We must be born-again in Jesus’ name or we are not in the covenant of His grace (favour) which is His word to us! We cannot worship Him in Truth and in His Spirit unless we do things His way! Jn.14:6Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. We do not go any other way but His way!
Where is man’s glory?
Where is man’s glory? No man can glory in anything because the best we can do is our service that is required of us seen in Lk.17:7But which of you, having a servant plowing or feeding cattle, will say unto him by and by, when he is come from the field, Go and sit down to meat? 8And will not rather say unto him, Make ready wherewith I may sup, and gird thyself, and serve me, till I have eaten and drunken; and afterward thou shalt eat and drink? 9Doth he thank that servant because he did the things that were commanded him? I trow not. 10So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do! Ecc.12:13-14!
Have we done all to be able to stand before the Almighty God? Phil.2:10!
Have we done all that we can do to be able to stand before our great God on the Day of Judgment? Judgment starts with us first (the church of the living God; if we do not make the catching away we will be forever here on earth, as shown what happens to all that are left behind, when the door finally closes! Mt.25: 11Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. 12But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not! Because you had not readied yourself, according to His every word, we cannot leave one thing undone!), 1 Pt.4:17For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? This is what happened to the man who had come into the wedding feast and had not put on the robes of righteousness seen in Mt.22:1 – 11And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment: 12And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless. 13Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness, there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 14For many are called, but few are chosen!
18And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? Just as Jesus said in Mt.5:19Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven; the burning world seen in 2 Pt.3:is still in the realms of heaven and God’s universe! But whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven (They have proven their faith by their actions (Jms.2:1-ffs), which are called fruits, works of righteousness (Mt.7:15-23), when we abide in Jesus seen in Jn.15:1-ffs or we are pruned back and cut off thrown into the burn pile, (Jn.15:6)! 20For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven! He has given all of His far warnings! Seek ye Him while He may be found or fall forever in your shame, Dan.12:1-2! If you fall in your shame you will become fuel for the fire seen in Eze.21:31-32 and Eze.22:30-31! Shown also to us in Mk.9:42-50; if we have no salt or flavor found left in us, we are not even worth throwing in the dung pile because the manure can be used for fertilizer but left over salt that has lost its seasoning will even kill the flowers and the grass! It is for preserving and for flavor but you have lost all useful purposes to Him, due to the fact that your heart is not pure! See 2 Tm.2:19-22 and you have not completed your work for Him lifting up your weaker brothers, seen in the end verses, because you have not a true love for your brothers that are headed for Hell and you have not pulled them to the side and talked to them about the word of our Great God who is coming to judge the world, because you were ashamed of teaching His words to others: Whosoever is ashamed of His words, He will be ashamed of them seen in Mk.8:34-38; we need to read and study these verses given to us, in order to know His mind, which is His will to us! Mt.12:31-32 and 46-50, we must be found in His will or perish with all the rest of the none believers!
19Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator (Jn.16:33)!
Beware of false doctrines!
I have heard it said so many times that we are saved by faith and grace alone; which is true if one knows what true grace of God is and what true faith on God really is! The Grace of God is that He made Himself known to us and what it is that He requires for us to have a real relationship with Him, which is His word to us, or we are still in our will and headed for Hell with all the rest of the none believers and even some believers but they have not put their beliefs in action or works that I have been talking about; all the way through this Sermon of mine, given to me by our Lord Jesus! Jms.2:19Thou believest that there is one God ( I know a lot of people who believe in three gods! But even if you know there is only one God it doesn’t get you off the hook!); thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble! They the devils which should be demons in this verse in Jms.2:19 seen here as δαιμόνια or daimonia from which we get demons when translated to English! Even they show wisdom because fear of God is the beginning of wisdom but with wisdom you were supposed to get understanding; which is the practical use of wisdom in a just knowledge in the right way; which is seen when one does what is right and just; that is when righteousness shows up in our lives which is the word of God being used in it! Otherwise we are in our own righteousness which is not of God’s; if this is done in ignorance it is forgivable if repented of!
If not it then becomes the unforgiveable sin of Presumptuous sin of being contentious, seen in 1 Cor.11:1Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ. 2Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you. 3But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God. 4Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoureth his head. 5But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven. 6For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered!
7For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man. 8For the man is not of the woman: but the woman of the man. 9Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man. 10For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels. 11Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord. 12For as the woman is of the man, even so is the man also by the woman; but all things of God. 13Judge in yourselves: is it comely that a woman pray unto God uncovered? 14Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him? 15But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering!: (Why would a woman of God want to cut off her glory!?)
16But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God. If a man is contentious he will not be holding to any of the words of God! Those types of men and women are seen here in Romans.
Ro.8:7Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. 8So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
They cannot bear the word of God in their lives so they make up another gospel that they can live with (This was prophesied of by Paul, Gal.1:16-9!); these are the ones seen here in 2 Tm.3:1This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away! 6For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, 7Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth!
Always learning another man’s doctrines instead of the ones given in the only true book of life called the Holy Bible! These are the ones these verses were written for: 2 Tm.4:1I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; 2Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine (Amose8:11: Can two walk together unless they agree? Amose.3:3!). 3For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine (Jn.15:20; Ac.2:38-47); but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables!
They want to serve a God of their likening; not the one true God which expects His children to act accordingly to His divine will! Not everyone is going to heaven, only one third of the stars fell from heaven with the devil which is called Satan; and there were four seeds sown and only one came up and bear fruit; that is 25% of the seed sown and counting the remnant of Israel in the last days of 12,000 out of the chosen tribes mentioned are going to heaven, that equals 1/3 of the stars needed for God to make His heaven perfect again just like it was in the beginning! Not even all the tribes were mentioned in the book of Revelation for the 144,000 who are chosen! Dan was not mentioned or Ephraim! Manasseh took the place of the tribe of Dan because Dan was the first to turn to apostasy of idol worship in the furthest part of the Kingdom to the north in the land’s of the Sidonians over by Laish which is called Leshem the city of Dan, next to Abel-beth-maacha, with all the stuff of Micah, the idol and the Levite priest with the ephod and teraphim: But this is another Bible study of its own!
Why was Man and the Earth made?
That is the reason why the earth was made so that man; a living dirt ball that had the breath of life blown into his nostrils could rule over God’s fallen angels, just to show them how despicable they are to Him! That is the reason why this earth must perish and become Hell; which is on the other side of heaven’s gulf seen in Lk.16:19There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: 20And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, 21And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. 22And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; 23And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off and Lazarus in his bosom. 24And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. 25But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. 26And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us; that would come from thence. 27Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father’s house: 28For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment. 29Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. 30And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent. 31And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead!
Just like so many in today’s world that are being blessed with material goods and think God is blessing them; are in for a rude awakening! Jesus said we will have tribulations if we are his, Jn.16:33! We will be tried and tested and proven to see if we are worthy of Him and His kingdom, so that we can come back with Him and rule with Him because we meditated on His word day and night and sought after Him with prayers moaning in the Holy Spirit, which only He knows the things that are needed for His; who are really called buy His name, Mal.3:16-18! I suggest you go read those verses if you don’t know them by heart! Even these in Ecc.12:9And moreover, because the preacher was wise, he still taught the people knowledge; yea, he gave good heed, and sought out, and set in order many proverbs. 10The preacher sought to find out acceptable words: and that which was written was upright, even words of truth. 11The words of the wise are as goads, and as nails fastened by the masters of assemblies, which are given from one shepherd! 12And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh. 13Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. 14For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil! From Genesis to Rev.22:21 this Holy Bible is about one person, Jn.5:39Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. 40And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life. 41I receive not honour from men. 42But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you. 43I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive! We receive words of men before we listen to the Holy Words of our LORD GOD!
BELIEVING MATERIAL GAIN IS GODLINESS!
1 Tm.6: 5Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself!
Just like today we see all kinds of men selling prosperity gospel all around us while the word of God reveals something entirely different, 1 Tm.6:3If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness; 4He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings, 5Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself. 6But godliness with contentment is great gain! 7For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. 8And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. 9But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. 10For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows! Seek not after the temporal things of this world but the eternal things which cometh from our Lord God! Which is His truth and grace to us, Jn.1:17; Jn.14:18!
Everything we see today on this earth is only temporal; it is on its way out forever: 2 Pt.3:7But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men! 8But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
9The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
10But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
11Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness?
12Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat! When the last soul receives this gospel we are out of here, Mt.24:14! So what should all of us be doing if we are to be servants, in God’s harvest fields? Mk.8:34-38!
So what kind of man or woman are you going to be and believe me; I’m talking to myself right now too! I know that without the Holy Spirit in operation in my life I stand no chance of my feet leaving the ground on the day of the catching away (For it will be a supernatural event!), unless I have the same Spirit that was operating in Jesus Christ’s life, which also brought Him out of the grave!
With this being said I’m going to close for now, even though I have much, much, more to say! You see I too have been in my Arabia, as the Apostle Paul had been; who had received from above the gifts of revelation to God’s words that have been before now a mystery; but with the Holy Spirit translating it for us we have no need to be left out in the dark, as those in this world; who cannot receive this word because it is not for them and they cannot hear it; they only hear the things of the world, Jn14:17; 1 Jn.3:1! All these things come at a price though; because to one much has been given, the much more will be required of them! If anyone walk not in His words, they also will be found as the unforgiveable servant who was cut asunder and cast out into outer darkness, Lk.12:35Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning; 36And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately. 37Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. 38And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. 39And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through. 40Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not. 41Then Peter said unto him, Lord, speakest thou this parable unto us, or even to all? 42And the Lord said: Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of meat in due season? 43Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. 44Of a truth I say unto you, that he will make him ruler over all that he hath! 45But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken; 46The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers! 47And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes! ( As in forever!) 48But he that knew not (The sin of ignorance which is repented of!), and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.
49I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled?
This fire is about to fall, that catching away is upon us any day now, therefore heed the words of God, repent and do the first works, we are to build His temple in us so that He can reward us with a mansion of our own in His house, Jn.14:1-2! Only if we are truly called by His name and buried with Him in the water of regeneration of remission of sin seen in Ac.2:38-39 and come out from among this untoward generation seen in verse 40 because we cannot drink from the cup of this world and drink from the Cup of our Lord Jesus! The Holy Spirit will not and never will live in an unholy vessel! That is just the way it is, something Holy will never reside in something unholy and which is still in the world, Jms.4:4; 1 Jn.2:14-17 the things of this word are about to pass away! Only the things that are done in Jesus’ name that glorify the Father will last forever!
Hag.1:5Now therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts: Consider your ways. 6Ye have sown much, and bring in little; ye eat, but ye have not enough; ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink; ye clothe you, but there is none warm; and he that earneth wages earneth wages to put it into a bag with holes. 7Thus saith the LORD of hosts: Consider your ways: This was given for men who were supposed to be building the Temple of God and were not; it fits for us today as well! Repent and do the first works or perish with all none believers! Take heed these words of mine are coming true and you know they will because they are the words of God, out of His Holy Bible. Is.55:11; Is.45:22-23; Mt.24:35! Only those who walk in the ways of our Lord Jesus are truly His children; who have the right to be called Christians! The true Saints of God, sanctified, consecrated and tried and proved to be worthy to sit down at His table and be served! They are without spot, or wrinkle, which is blameless, without blemish! Mt.5:48; Gen.17:1 and 2 Tm.3:61-17 A man of God may be perfect thoroughly furnished unto all good works!
