Help us build a House of God where it is needed, among the poor, homeless, widowed and orphaned!

Mt.25:40And the King shall answer and say unto them: Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. See also 1 Jn.4:16Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren (Are we not all one flesh under Adam and Eve? If so then all the world is our brethren!). 17But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?18My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth! 19And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him!

And James; Jms.2:14What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? 15If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, 16And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? 17Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone!

We need Donations for the Widows, Orphaned, Naked, Sick and Poor; Church Building Fund for Accra, Ghana, Africa: (Brother Davies at “The Shekinah Glory Assembly”) and For Bibles and church furniture: Under Construction. The foundation is in, most the brick walls are up on outside, still needed 1000 more bricks, 20+ bags more of concrete and three more loads of sand (they are small truck loads) plus now we need to start funding for the roofing materials,  windows, and doors to enclose the building. 100% of your donations go to the field of operations and to the people it is intended to help! Lord’s Way Ministries is going to support this effort in any way we can; all your help will be directly routed to Accra, Ghana, Africa thank you for your support.

You left me a message at https://garylordsway.wordpress.com for a more accurate knowledge of Bible Mysteries, of God and the Father and of the Lord Jesus Christ.

 

Your needing to understand more about the Holy Bible is available to you if you are serious about a commitment to study of the divine word of God, 2 Tm.2:15; we are required to show ourselves approved rightly dividing (Understanding) the word of God; Phil.2:12 requires us all to seek after our own salvation; that is located in the word of God, which cleanses us, Jn.15:3, but it is conditional! It is all tied to (Obedience to All scripture 2 Tm.3:16-17!); as seen in Ac.2:38-40 and to what Jesus has instructed us to do, as seen in Jn.15:1I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. 2Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more. 3Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. 4Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. 5I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. 6If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. 7If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. 8Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples. 9As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. 10If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love. 11These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. 12This is my commandment: That ye love one another, as I have loved you. 13Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. 14Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. 15Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. 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: 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!

Jesus was speaking to the newly commissioned and Ordained Apostles who had been given the Keys to Heaven in Mt.16:19And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. 20Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ.

You see just as Jesus can save no one unless the Father draweth that person to Jesus Christ seen in Jn.6:44No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day. We all must know and realize that this world is not eternal and is not going to last forever, as foretold I scripture as seen in 2 Pt.3: 1This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance: 2That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour: 3Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, 4And saying: Where is the promise of his coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. 5For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: 6Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: 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? 13Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. 14Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless. 15And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; 16As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. 17Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.

18But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever. Amen!!!

You see we are to keep growing in the knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ, and we must be found working in His harvest fields if we are to be wise servants that are found in His parables: Even as Jesus did when He was just 12 Years old seen in 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? So must we too or we are backslidden and are in need of repentance or we too will be found as the unfaithful servant seen in Lk.12:31But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you. 32Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. 33Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth. 34For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. 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.

You see we have a job to do if we want to be called by Jesus’ name; it comes at a cost to know that you are a disciple of Jesus Christ! Just as Jesus gave His all for us we too must give our all to His kingdom as well if we want to be called by His name as a Christian we must walk as He has shown us we must walk as He walked as our example seen in Jn.14:6Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. Our new job will be as seen here as a disciple of Jesus Christ 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.

Unless we understand who Jesus is we will find ourselves lost with the whole world who lies in wickedness seen in 1 Jn.5:19 because of the sin handed down from Adam and Eve in the garden of Paradise seen in Gen.3:1Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? 2And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: 3But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. 4And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: 5For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. 6And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. 7And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons. 8And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden. 9And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? 10And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself. 11And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat? 12And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat. 13And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.

14And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: 15And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. 16Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee. 17And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; 18Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; 19In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

All because man listened to another instead of God only, Adam blamed his wife and Eve blamed the sake (Satan which is disobedience to God’s will which is the unforgivable sin unless repented of, Mt.12:31-32 and see verses 46-50!); but the sin of these two was handed down to then from God for listening to another before their God! Man today is in the same boat now that Adam and Eve were in, the whole world is listening to men instead of God only and have fallen into sin of despair and are headed for the eternal Hell that was created for Satan and the fallen angels who left their first estate! Which is the world we inhabit; created to cleanse the Heaven, our Paradise we are to be looking for, the New Jerusalem coming down from the Father above. God created man to have dominion over Satan and the ability to have dominion over sin as 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 (Satan). Cain was prideful and fell into the lusts of the flesh and could not control himself and was cursed from that day on as well as his generations after him. These generations are still in fact on this earth working among us today as well. The same as the cursed Hamites or Canaanites! For disrespecting their natural fathers and ours, which is God and His Word to us.

If anyone wants to be reconciled to God they must worship Him in Spirit and in truth as called out in scripture by Jesus Himself (Who is God with us, see Mt.1:23; Is.40:3 and Mt.3:3 tied directly together! As well as Is.9:6 and Rev.4:8 who is also shown in Ac.20:28 as well as Jn.20:28!), in, Jn.4:24God is a Spirit (1 Tm.3:16 God is a Spirit that has been begotten (incarnated) seen in Jn.1:1-14!): and they that worship Him MUST worship Him in spirit and in truth (Jn.8:24). Jesus is called the Son of God, which He is because God the Holy Spirit used the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, whose name was turned to Israel, and out of Israel, who has 12 sons and two adopted sons of Joseph, Manassas, and Ephraim.

Jacob on his death bed blesses his sons (Gen.49:8-12 Judah’s blessings.) with a blessing that would follow them for the remaining of their families lives, they were prophetic, and were and are still being fulfilled as seen today. These are shown to us in Gen.49:1And Jacob called unto his sons, and said, Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days. You see God had promised King David from the tribe of Judah, that His seed would be king of all Israel for eternity and the only way that could be is if God became King of Israel and sat on the throne of King David; this is the sure mercies promised to Abraham in Gen.12:3And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed!

Which is the Gentiles you and I can now too be grafted into that same Holy vine by being blessed and not cursed (Jn.15:1-ffs); by reconciliation and endowed with God’s Holy Spirit as Adam the first man was endowed with in the Garden of Eden, before sin came to dwell in him and he lost his Spiritual union with God. But we need the sure mercies, that were promised to King David seen in 2 Sam.7:4And it came to pass that night, that the word of the LORD came unto Nathan, saying, 5Go and tell my servant David, Thus saith the LORD, Shalt thou build me an house for me to dwell in? 6Whereas I have not dwelt in any house since the time that I brought up the children of Israel out of Egypt, even to this day, but have walked in a tent and in a tabernacle. 7In all the places wherein I have walked with all the children of Israel spake I a word with any of the tribes of Israel, whom I commanded to feed my people Israel, saying, Why build ye not me an house of cedar? 8Now therefore so shalt thou say unto my servant David, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I took thee from the sheepcote, from following the sheep, to be ruler over my people, over Israel: 9And I was with thee whithersoever thou wentest, and have cut off all thine enemies out of thy sight, and have made thee a great name, like unto the name of the great men that are in the earth.

10Moreover I will appoint a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own, and move no more; neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them anymore, as beforetime, 11And as since the time that I commanded judges to be over my people Israel, and have caused thee to rest from all thine enemies. Also the LORD telleth thee that he will make thee an house. 12And when thy days be fulfilled, and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will establish his kingdom. 13He shall build an house for my name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever. 14I will be his father, and he shall be my son (This was the adoption and the sure mercies promised, seen as well in Ps.110:1).

If he commit iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men, and with the stripes of the children of men (Israel’s iniquity will be judged by God with in the future with war and defeat as well as with capture and hauled off to foreign lands as punishment for their sins whenever they are rebuked of the Lord: But the Lord will always save a remnant of Israel, and never do away with them as with other nations who disobey Him! See Jn.15:4-6.): 15But my mercy shall not depart away from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away before thee. 16And thine house and thy kingdom shall be established for ever before thee: thy throne shall be established forever. 17According to all these words, and according to all this vision, so did Nathan speak unto David.

Jesus is the last King of Israel from King David’s line (Thus all though Jesus is God manifested in the flesh, 1 Tm.3:16: He still used the adopted flesh of King David, making Jesus, fully God and still all man, which is seen in Col.2:1-ffs the fullness of the god-head and yet still man (The Son of God according to the flesh!) so that we could be saved by His atoning blood which is the propitiation for all mankind (Ac.20:28), 1 Tm.6:1-16!); that was even put on top of the cross that Jesus was crucified on (Jn.19:21) For this reason Jesus came to us, Jn.16:27-28!

The Blood Of God Covers All Sin!

 Without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sin as seen in the Old Testament as well as in the New Testament, for their will be one law for all of God’s children to follow and obey. We see this as far back as Num.15:1-ffs to the end of this chapter which discusses the stoning of an individual that sinned a presumptuous sin of picking up sticks to make a fire on the Holy Day of the Sabbath. The sin of ignorance is forgivable but the sin of a wilful and prideful act of disobedience will never be forgivable unless repented of, seen in Mt.12:31-32 and 46-50. Which leads us to understand a fundamental theological matter; that God will have the only blaspheme clause in the whole Bible seen in and as far back as the Garden of Eden to Abraham, Gen.17:1 to Jesus as well tells us that if we blaspheme the Holy Spirit it will never be forgiven in this lifetime or the next, which also was written in Moses’ Law of the Torah as well, you shalt not blaspheme the name of the LORD God! Well we see in Jn.5:43I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. Jesus is the manifestation of God’s name which means Salvation (Jn.17:3)! Just for reference I will use this scripture that shows the positions of God to us and Israel for example seen here in Is.49:26And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I the LORD am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob (IS.9:6).

The problem people have with the mystery of God and the Father and of Christ Jesus is that they do not understand that the Holy Spirit was not named here when Paul was talking about the mysteries of God. That is because Paul assumed all knew already God is a Spirit as called out be Jesus Himself in Jn.4:24! If God being a Spirit it only stands by reason that He must be, thee one and only, Holy Spirit as seen in Rev.4:8And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, Holy, Holy, LORD God Almighty (See Is.9:6), which was, and is, and is to come (As well as Is. Chapter 44 and chapter 45 the “I Am” which was first shown to us in Ex.3:14. And then again later in the New Testament in Jn.8:  58Jesus said unto them: Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I AM! As well as here; 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. Which was just before His teaching the disciples who He is in Jn.14:6Jesus saith unto him, “I AM” the way, (“I AM”) the truth, and (“I AM”) the life: no man cometh unto the Father (Union with the Holy Spirit), but by ME! Why? Jesus is about to show you why, in the very next verse; Jn.14:7If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him! Jesus is the embodiment of the invisible God which is the Holy Spirit as seen by which we are saved by His blood, as seen in 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 very blood of Jesus Christ showing us Jesus is truly the Almighty God as called out in Is.9:6 and in 1 Tm.3:16! Shown here: 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.

Glory That Will Only Belong To God Seen In Scripture!

 Glory is another good way to show all that Jesus is the one and only true God; as we look to scripture yet again. Look as 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. As well as, 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. Just as some of these used by others in the New Testament as well, even Jesus, Jn.11:40Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God? The story of the “Ten Lepers” in Lk.17:18There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger. Even the Apostle Paul wrote to verify Jesus is the glory of God; as we look to his writing in 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. As well as 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.

Jesus is the gateway to eternal salvation and union with God the Holy Spirit which dwells in Jesus as seen in Mt.3:17And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son (My Flesh), in whom “I AM,” well pleased! (To Be In!) As well as Mt.17:5While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son (Flesh), in whom “I AM,” well pleased (To Be); hear ye him (Why? Jesus told us why in Jn.14:10Believest 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!). Jesus tells us why yet AGAIN 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. Peter saw this as well and understood everything Jesus was saying perfectly as we look at Jn.6:68Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? Thou hast the words of eternal life! The words that Jesus spoke were in fact the words of God the Holy Spirit which dwelt in Jesus who in fact did all the works, because the Holy Spirit is the Power of the Highest who is God seen in Lk.1:35And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest (Who is the Highest but God?) shall overshadow thee: therefore also that Holy Thing (should read Devine One) which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God (Which is being manifested in the seed of King David making Jesus the Son of God by proxy or adoption but yet still all God and all man, which is the word of God made flesh, Jn.1:1-14 the begotten God seen in verse 18 of the same chapter in many Greek original manuscripts, who is in the bosom of the Eternal Omnipresent God who is the Holy Spirit, in which the whole universe has its being and existence by His upholding power! Which is the light of all mankind, Gen.1:3 and Jn.8:12 and again in Jn.12:35-50! Which is Jesus Christ, which is just the housing for the Holy Spirit, which is the blood by which we all must be saved by or we are none of His yet still. The flesh will always yield to the Holy Spirit as seen in 1 Cor.15:28And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all. Who is supposed to be in all of us, as seen in Col.3:11Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all. Because Jesus is both LORD and the CHRIST seen in Ac.2:36 and who is LORD of ALL seen in, Ac.10:36!).

Worshipping in Spirit and in Truth!

 One must worship in Spirit and in truth as required by scripture or we are worshipping a false god made up by man’s vain imaginations which is no better that idolatry. The only way mankind can interpret scripture correctly is to do what Jesus said we must do as seen in Jn.3:3Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee: Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. 4Nicodemus saith unto him: How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? 5Jesus answered: Verily, verily, I say unto thee: Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 6That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7Marvel not that I said unto thee: Ye must be born again. 8The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

You see we cannot be part of what Jesus is teaching unless we are born-again of His Spirit in us, which is the Spirit of the Holy Ghost, being regenerated in us as seen in Tit.3:4But 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. We can only be justified in God’s eyes by being in and having Jesus’ own name given to us at baptism, where the blood of the sacrifice is applied to our souls by the water of regeneration of repentance and remission or forgiveness of sins, then the indwelling of the Holy Spirit can come and reside in us as well as it did in Jesus. Look at 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! We cannot be justified before God unless He gives us His repentance as seen in Jn.1:12But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God! As well as here in Ac.11:15And as I began to speak, the Holy Ghost fell on them, as on us at the beginning. 16Then remembered I the word of the Lord, how that he said, John indeed baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost. 17Forasmuch then as God gave them the like gift as he did unto us, who believed on the Lord Jesus Christ; what was I, that I could withstand God? 18When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying: Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life! You see this was what happened at Cornelius’ house in chapter 10 of Acts. The Gentiles had been given repentance of God that He should not bring death upon them who were forgiven of their sins, by His receiving their repentances, which Cornelius had shown to God by his praying and fasting and his well doing, giving alms and praying constantly seeking God. God sees to the very heart of men, we can go through all the rituals we want to go through but it will not save us until we surrender to God’s authority and ask Him for His forgiveness and seek a new heart that only He can give to us, a heart of His love for all mankind just like His heart as the Apostle John has shown us in 1 Jn.4:8He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. 9In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. 10Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 11Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. 12No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us. 13Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.

We cannot have this kind of love without being reborn of a new Spirit in us or we are still none of His yet still as shown to us in scripture. 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. 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: 4That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. 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. 6For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 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. 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!

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. 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. 14For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

We cannot have this type of union unless we have had the union of God’s own Spirit dwelling in us, as seen in Ac.2:1And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. 3And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. 4And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. Which is the sign by which God has given us to know when we have received His supernatural Spirit in us. Just as in the Tower of Babble we see that God used the tongue to divide mankind to separate them from committing evil and to judge them; while in the New Testament God is using the Tongue once again as His instrument, for no man is able to control the tongue unless God is with him and in him. This was talked about in James as well, (Jms.3:1-18). We see in the days of Moses that when God set up His church in the wilderness, Moses went up on the mount and was gone for forty days and forty nights and the children of Israel got up and played the harlot and worshipped the golden Calf. When Moses came down from the mount 3,000 souls were killed by God’s wrath, which is the same amount of souls God called into the first church in the book of Acts as well, seen in chapter 2:37Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? 38Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 39For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the LORD our God shall call. 40And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation. 41Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls. 42And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

This is the New Testament plan of Salvation given to us by those who had the Keys to Heaven seen in Mt.16:19And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. 20Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ.

That is why Jesus said if we will obey His words we will obey His Apostles words too, for they are the words to our eternal rewards and mansions above seen in Jn.14:1Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 2In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. 4And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. That is the way we must all go in order to be with our God in Jesus Christ! Not by any other way can we go, it must be done His way, not man’s way by his rituals and traditions either!

Salvation only comes by God’s repentances given to us for what He must do to all sinners, for the wages of sin is death to the sinner Gal.6:7Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. We all will stand before the judgment seat of God, Phil.2:5Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: 6Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: 7But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: 8And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. 9Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 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!

Without Direction There Can Be No Providence;

Without Divine Guidance and Vision!

 We cannot lead without His Spirit leading us into all truths as Jesus has told us in Jn.14:16And 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, 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. You see this is Jesus’ own Spirit that will come upon you for He told them here that it was He that dwelt with them here at this time and was among them as well! Jesus’ Spirit is the Spirit who wrote the Holy Bible as seen in 2 Pt.1:20Knowing 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. Who is seen in the previous verse just prior to these verse here; let us look to; 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: which was seen in Rev.2:28 and Rev.22:16 as well! Just as it was shown to us earlier in 1 Pt.1:9Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls. 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! Just as we see the same understanding going on in Paul’s writings to us in Ro.8:9But 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.

You see the Holy Spirit inspired all scripture as seen 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.

This is where the Apostle Paul was instructing Timothy how to conduct himself in the church of the living God. Which is being taught by His words to us that are from the Old Testament as well as the New Testament that was being written here in front of Timothy’s eyes; as well as ours too. These words are our life to us, which is the will of God and His mind for us to see read and hear preached and taught that we might know the one and only true God, who is One, Zech.14:9And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one. Which told Zechariah 530 years before the date that all the world will look upon Me whom they had pierced; 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! When God speaks it is the mold to history and time is then fashioned to His likening as seen in 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. 10For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: 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.

You see all of this is rudimentary Bible Studying; we need the interpreter to lead us into all righteousness which is His word to us, that will then lead us into right thinking, and that cannot be done unless we know His mind as seen in 1 Cor.2:1And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God. 2For I determined not to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. 3And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling. 4And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: 5That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.

6Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: 7But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: 8Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 9But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

10But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. 11For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? Even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. 12Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. 13Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 15But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. 16For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.

You see why it is so important to have His Holy Spirit in us now! It is His Spirit that will guide you into all His truths so that you can know His mind! We cannot have the correct theology or philosophy without having the correct psychology; which is the very mind of God! He alone will show you where to go to get the word of God in its proper perspectives He has for you to receive, He is the Spirit of Prophecy which is having a Testimony of Jesus Christ in you! This was revealed to us 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 fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus, worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy! By which all history is molded and formed by His word!

This is exactly what Isaiah was showing us 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. 10For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:

 11For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people. 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. (Evidences of the Holy Spirit even in the Old Testament as well as in Joel chapter 2:28And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: 29And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.)

Without this baptism of God’s own Spirit leading people into all truths, they will become tired of trying to understand something that makes no since to them and give up on reading the only word that brings eternal life to tem and will then be found as these people seen here in verse 13!

13But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken!

These are the same people Jesus explained to us about the seed which is the word of God was sown to four people which represented different types of soil the seed or word of God was applied to; only one seed out of four came to grow until it was ripe and yielded its fruit! That is only 25% of the seed sown; many are called but few will be chosen, 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. See also Mt.20:16So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen. Mt.22:14For many are called, but few are chosen. I think God is telling us something here: Mt.24:35Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. Just the same thing Jesus was saying in the beginning verses of this same book as well seen 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: 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.

Unless our righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees we will not enter into the Kingdom of God! This means we must have right thinking and right decisions which is understanding talked about in proverbs. Prov.4:4He taught me also, and said unto me, Let thine heart retain my words: keep my commandments, and live. 5Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth. 6Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee. 7Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. 8Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honor, when thou dost embrace her. 9She shall give to thine head an ornament of grace: a crown of glory shall she deliver to thee. 10Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings; and the years of thy life shall be many. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: Prov.9:10The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding. 11For by me thy days shall be multiplied, and the years of thy life shall be increased. See also Ps.111:10The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth forever.

This leads me to an important teaching; you see Jesus came to the water in the Jordan where John the Baptist was baptizing for a couple of different reasons; and one of the reasons was not that Jesus had any sin because Jesus didn’t have any sin as shown to us in scripture; 2 Cor.5:21For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him (Jesus). See John the Baptist was the last Old Testament Prophet of God and Jesus was allowing John to Baptize Him because Jesus was showing us what we too were to do in order to have salvation (Jn.14:6). Jesus was showing us how all righteousness is obtained; and without righteousness and Holiness no one will enter into His Kingdom as shown in Heb.12:14Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord: The other reason Jesus allowed John the Baptist to Baptize Him was to show us that all scripture is tied directly together just as Jesus said here in Jn.10:35If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken; Then we cannot be the children of God unless we abide in His word to us, seen in Jn.8:47He that is of God heareth God’s words: Therefore we too cannot be Christ’s unless we abide in His word to us, if we want to indeed be His disciples, seen in 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. As well as this one in the same chapter too; 51Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death.

Salvation is Conditional!

 We must have repented, we must have asked for forgiveness, and have been baptized in Jesus’ name, for there is no other name given by which we must be saved, as seen in Ac.4:12! That is why Jesus said if we ask anything in His name He will give it and do it for us, Jn.14:14; if we keep His commandments seen in the very next verse, Jn.14:15 If we love Him we will keep His Commandments! All of them, 2 Tm.3:16-17 is how a child of God will appear before Him in perfection which is a requirement seen in Mt.5:48Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. Just as seen in Gen.17:1And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect. You see Noah was a man that was righteous in the eyes of our Lord, as well as Job another perfect man in the eyes of God! With man this is impossible but not after God’s Holy Spirit dwells in you then and only then do all things become possible, as seen in Mt.19:26But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them: With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible!

We cannot have Salvation any other way but by His indwelling Spirit in us or we are none of His yet still, Ro.8:9! We must die to this flesh of ours and live no more for the lusts of the flesh as seen in 1 Jn.2:15Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 17And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever. Just as James has shown us here in scripture as well; Jms.4:4Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God! You cannot drink of the cup of God and the cup of this world, 1 Cor.10:21Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s Table, and of the table of devils. 22Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than he? That is why we must always be judging ourselves against the word of God, not of this world that lies in wickedness seen in 1 Jn.5:19 but we must look at our own selves and make sure we are right in God’s eyes, 1 Cor.11:31For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. 32But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world. Because we always seek that which is right in His eyes and if we find some fault with us we are given to repentances until we have sought for His council and He has instructed us in our faults and given us a better way in which we are to go! He has made known His heart to us by His words to us and His word being spoke to our hearts will never contradict what He has spoken to us in His Holy Bible because God changes not, Mal.3:6 and only those who are found written in his book of life will be with him forevermore! Mal.3:  16Then they that feared the LORD; spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name. 17And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. 18Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not. These are the same ones who have an Unction as shown to us by the Great Apostle John in 1 Jn.2:20But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things. 21I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth. As well as, 1 Jn.2:27But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.

These verses just stated in the previous paragraph, relate to one having the power of the Holy Spirit and His indwelling Spirit in you, that will lead you into all truths which are of Him, therefore you will have no need for any teacher to instruct you once you have the true indwelling Holy Spirit in you, to lead you through all the scripture He has written for us to use as we walk through this life of ours which is to be used as faithful servants of God who has purchased our souls with a price no man can ever repay but with His own soul, for his God and fellow man! Just as Jesus said, not greater love is there, than for a man to do, than to lay down his life for his brethren! Just as Jesus gave His life for us we too are to give our lives for Him and His work and word, as seen in these scriptures, 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! If we don’t know what the perfect will of God is for us then we are still in the world and not doing what is called out for a child of God to do as seen in 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. Even these scriptures that are given from Jess for this exact reason so we too would know what it is that Jesus is looking for in us as in these verses here; 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.

Just as Jesus has given us far warning as seen in these verses as well; 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. 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. 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 chose to ignore one word of His Holy Bible given to us we will stand and give an account for our understandings and for our definition of what we think that His word meant to us, it will not matter what we heard and was taught to us by another man; we are all instructed to fear God and to work out our own Salvation with him, seen here: Ro.3:4God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged. Phil.1:5For your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now; 6Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ: Phil.4:11Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. 12I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: everywhere and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 13I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. 14Notwithstanding ye have well done, that ye did communicate with my affliction. 15Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only. 16For even in Thessalonica ye sent once and again unto my necessity. 17Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account. 18But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, well pleasing to God.

We must be a sweet smelling sacrifice unto our Lord, with all of our lives given for Him and His sake! We must be found working in His labors just as he labored more abundantly that all of us put together, but greater things are we to do that He because He has gone to be with the Father, from wince He came, as shown to us in Jn.16:25These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall show you plainly of the Father. 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. Jesus has always been the manifestation of God to man as seen here in Gal.3:20Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one. As Paul has shown us time and time again who Jesus is as in 1 Tm.6:13I give thee charge in the sight of God, who quickeneth all things, and before Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed a good confession; 14That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: 15Which in his times he shall show, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords; 16Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.

God said let there be light, Gen.1:3 and God is that Light that is the life of all the universe, seen in Jesus Christ, Jn.8:12Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. Everything God said He was in the Old Testament Jesus has fulfilled in the New Testament as well! That there is only one God and His name is Jesus Christ, Jn.5:45; Jn.12:45 and Jn.10:30I and my Father are one! If anyone preaches any other gospel he is accursed as seen in Deu.4:2Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you. 12:32What thing so ever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it. We are not to go to the right hand or to the left but stay in the way that the Lord has told us to go, Deu.5:32Ye shall observe to do therefore as the LORD your God hath commanded you: ye shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the left. 33Ye shall walk in all the ways which the LORD your God hath commanded you, that ye may live, and that it may be well with you, and that ye may prolong your days in the land which ye shall possess. Just as God told Joshua in Josh.1:7Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper withersoever thou goest. This is in fact what the apostle Paul taught as well; Gal.1:8But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 9As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. We find this as well in Rev.22:18For 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.

You see I have much, much more to say about the Lord and His word to us, but it is He that is to reveal His word to you, for the service you are called out to go and do for Him! It is He that is to teach you all things and to bring you into His realms of supernatural revelations, not me. Each and every one of us have our own individual work we must go and do for Him as His faithful servant must do as called out for in these verses here as well; 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!

That is all God expects from us is to keep ourselves to Him only or we are no better than those who are sinners in the world, and even those who are not working in His harvest fields for even they are backslidden! We must not and never be ashamed of this gospel or He too will be ashamed of us as well, and let me just show you what a shame means in the eyes of only Him who counts; seen in 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!

This was written just for the days we are in now too; just as this that Jesus spoke to John in Revelation; Rev.3:14And 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 spew 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 eye salve, that thou mayest see. 19As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. 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.

Only this church and these type of people will find themselves staying out of the great Tribulations that are headed for this word and all the people in it; the Philadelphia church will be taken out of the way because Philadelphia means brotherly love and when we have done the least righteous things unto the least of humanity we have done them unto Jesus Himself who is our Brother, when God became man He also became our brother didn’t He? That is why Paul said when we have loved God with all our hearts and our brothers as ourselves we have fulfilled all the law! For this reason Jesus will keep this church out of the great tribulations that we are starting to be in today; Rev.3:  7And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; 8I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. 9Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. 10Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. 11Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. 12Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. 13He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

How are we to become overcomers unless we have to go through something? Jesus said if we follow Him we will have trials and persecution, just as they tried Jesus and persecuted Jesus they will persecute us as well. Jn.16:33These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. If Jesus is our way and our truth and our life we are to walk we too will f ace what he did as well too! If we are living as He lived! All these things and many more He has for all who seek Him in His righteousness as seen in Mt.6:33But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. When we stay in the ways of our Lord He will provide for us a way in which we should go; and provide and answer for us when the world is all but lost still; Mt.7:7Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: 8For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

All of this and much, much more is available to all those who are living in Him and His word is living in you! This can only be done if we ask Him for His Holy Spirit to come and dwell in us as we too become a willing vessel for Him to dwell in as Mary was seen to be in Lk.1:38And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. We too must come seeking what is for us; Lk.11:13If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?

Just as James has said though we must ask not doubting or we too will receive nothing from Him seen in Jms.1:1James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting. 2My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; 3Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. 4But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. 5If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. 6But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. 7For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. 8A double minded man is unstable in all his ways. 9Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that he is exalted: 10But the rich, in that he is made low: because as the flower of the grass he shall pass away. 11For the sun is no sooner risen with a burning heat, but it withereth the grass, and the flower thereof falleth, and the grace of the fashion of it perisheth: so also shall the rich man fade away in his ways. 12Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him. 13Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: 14But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. 15Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

 16Do not err, my beloved brethren. 17Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning! Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forevermore as seen in Heb.13:8Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever. Just as in Mal.3:6For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed. Therefore if we too are grafted into that same vine then we too will not perish but will in fact be saved as well as Jacob, because God cannot lie, Num.23:19 and Tit.1:1-2 and Heb.6:17Wherein God, willing more abundantly to show unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath: 18That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us:

You see we have a hope set before us but it is up to us to finish our race well, no one can win it for you, you must run your own race that the Lord has given you to run! It is entirely up to us how we run our race; only can those who will win their race will win it with the help of the Lord guiding them in the way in which they should go. Each man woman and child have their own individual races that they must win, no one can help them in which the way they must go or it will not be the will of God for you! If we do one thing at all it had better to be in the will of God or we will be found to be in our will yet still, which is the worst thing we could ever do! Mt.12:30He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad. (Are we gatherers or are we helping Satan to scatter?)

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, and neither in the world to come.

Because all word that is ever written in the Holy Bible has come from the Holy Spirit, 2 Tm.3:16All 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.

How is a man to be cleansed by the word of God unless a man keep himself in the word of God seen in Jn.15:3, this is how we abide in Jesus and He abides in us as well as the Holy Spirit by which we are sealed and sanctified! Therefore if we are not abiding in the word of God, we are not aiding in Him and He is not is us either! We will then be found as all those who say they are called a Christian and walk as the world walks and will be found as hypocrites just as Jesus was talking about hating in Mt.23: Who call themselves priest of the most High God and walk as if they have no understanding! These are those servants that will be cut asunder and cast out into outer darkness, where there will be gnashing of teeth!

Mt.13:18Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.

19When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.

20But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it;

21Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.

22He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.

23But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.

24Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:

25But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.

26But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.

27So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?

28He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?

29But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.

30Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.

31Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field:

32Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.

33Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.

34All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them:

35That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.

36Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.

37He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;

38The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;

39The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.

40As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.

41The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;

42And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

43Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

44Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.

45Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:

46Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.

47Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind:

48Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.

49So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,

50And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

51Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things? They say unto him, Yea, Lord.

52Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old.

53And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these parables, he departed thence.

54And when he was come into his own country, he taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works?

55Is not this the carpenter’s son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas?

56And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then hath this man all these things?

57And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house.

58And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.

You see it is impossible to please God without faith and we cannot have faith unless it is given to us by Him who giveth us all things; 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. 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. 4For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office: 5So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another. 6Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; 7Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching; 8Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness. 9Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.

We all have a job to do for our Lord and it is up to each of us to find it and be doing it when He returns for His church who has made herself ready for His coming again and she must be without spot, or wrinkle and she is to be found without blemish, Eph.5:27! With man this is impossible only those who are God’s children and who hear the word of God being spoken to them out of His Holy bible will see His face, only if they too become as a child who has a pure heart: Mt.5:8Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. Mt.18:1At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying: Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? 2And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, 3And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. 4Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. Paul taught this as well: 2 Tm.2:19Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let everyone that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. 20But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. 21If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work. 22Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

We will be working in His harvest fields laboring to bring in the lost and wayward sheep who have lost their way of the narrow path; we too must be working to pick them up and restore a weaker brother; as seen in Jms.5:19Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him; 20Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.

 

See also Peter’s writing on the same subject; 1 Pt.4:1Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin; 2That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God. 3For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries: 4Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you: 5Who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the quick and the dead. 6For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit. 7But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer. 8And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins!

9Use hospitality one to another without grudging. 10As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. 11If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion forever and ever (Col.3:17)! Amen.

12Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: 13But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy. 14If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified. 15But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men’s matters. 16Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.

 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? 18And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? 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.

We are called to be Holy as he is Holy, 1 Pt.1:13Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; 14As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: 15But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; 16Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

These things are for us to keep in our hearts and always before our faces and let it always be on our lips as well, speaking all truths as it is given to us out of His Holy Bible! It is our only instruction book to heaven, and it is His way to meet Him in the air by the operations that are only from Him alone! Not man’s way it must be God’s operation we must be in compliance with as seen in His scriptures! Or our feet will never leave the ground!

It can only be taught to us by Him who wrote it, by His indwelling Holy Spirit who leads every one of us into His Truths, it is mandatory; Jn.4:24God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. And unless we know and understand who Jesus really is we too will die in our sins; 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. Only those who keep His words will be in Heaven with him for all eternity; Jn.8:51Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death.

The hour is near and Jesus is coming to judge the world; Jn.5:17But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work. 18Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the Sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God. 19Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things so ever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise (And we too if we are really His Sons who have heard His word, Jn.8:47!). 20For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth (As well as those who are called and chosen for His works, Mt.6:33 and 7:7-8!): and he will show him greater works than these; that ye may marvel.

21For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will. 22For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son: 23That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him. 24Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life!

25Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live. 26For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; 27And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man See Jn.3:13). 28Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, 29And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.

In Closing

 We get only one chance to live this life we have been given correctly and to be found as overcomers or we too have failed most miserably! I few fail we will be fule for the fire as seen in Eze.21:31And I will pour out mine indignation upon thee, I will blow against thee in the fire of my wrath, and deliver thee into the hand of brutish men, and skilful to destroy. 32Thou shalt be for fuel to the fire; thy blood shall be in the midst of the land; thou shalt be no more remembered: for I the LORD have spoken it.

As well as seen in the very next chapter, Eze.22:30And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none. 31Therefore have I poured out mine indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath: their own way have I recompensed upon their heads, saith the Lord GOD.

He will reward us with our own doings: Gal.6:7Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 8For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

Jesus knew what was needed in the last days before His coming and He revealed to the Apostle John in Revelation of Jesus Christ to St. John, seen in Rev.2:5Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent. Without Repentance, and Remission of sin, and the baptism of the Holy Spirit no man will be reunited with His Heavenly Father for forever: They that have not done as instructed by the word of God will be seen and heard as these here; the will all be saying what Jesus said on the cross which was end of days prophetic: Which was a Old Testament warning just as it was repeated in the new Testament for this reason: Ps.22:1My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? Mt.27:46And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?”

Jesus was God in the flesh and being so He knew exactly why he was up on that cross, and He knew exactly what the outcome of His actions was going to be too! Who do you think He was saying those words for; He was saying them for all who He had asked the Father to forgive, but yet He was still the word of Prophecy seen in Rev.19:10 as to that which is to come upon all who heed not His words! That will awake to everlasting shame; where the worm dieth not and the fire is never quenched as seen repeatedly in Mark chapter 9! Just as it was warned in the last book in the Bible as we look to chapter 22 of Revelation: 7Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book. 8And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things. 9Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God. 10And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand. 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. 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. 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.

We either do as Jesus instructed us and lay up for ourselves treasures in heaven or we face the wrath of Almighty God who created Heaven and Earth, who I might add is a consuming fire; Heb.12:29For our God is a consuming fire! Which is another one of those chapters warning about presumptuous sin that is running prevalent all over the world today!

Somewhere someone started a story that is going to lead to a lot of people going to Hell; the story about being once saved always saved and another one where they said that they are saved by grace and faith alone! They don’t even know what God’s grace looks like let lone having faith enough to walk in the word of the Lord as instructed! Faith is not just believing, it is believing put in action, that is what makes faith and we are to show works worthy of Repentance, shown to us in scripture; read 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. That is the same thing Paul told us 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.

That means we had better be doing what we were instructed to be doing! Especially if we claim to love Jesus, Jn.14:15If ye love me, keep my commandments. Very few people understand that from Gen.1:1 to Rev.22:21 is all our commandments, and that every word is a Heaven or Hell issue! Col.3:17And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him. Is everything we are saying and doing lining up with the word of God and bringing glory to Jesus Christ in His children who are supposedly walking as he walked; it is a commandment too as seen in 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.

This is how we know the love of God is perfected in us that we go and do as Jesus told the adulteress, that we too after we have been saved; we go and sin no more as well as she was told to do, Jn.8:11 or a worse thing will come upon us as well as the cripple who was warned just as you are being warned now, seen in Jn.5:14Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.

Have I too become you enemy because I too tell you the truth? Gal.4:16Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth? One thing is for sure we will all face God one day and give an account for the things we have done and said on this God’s Earth! We will all give account for the time spent and every idle word said, Mt.12:35A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. 36But I say unto you: That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the Day of Judgment. 37For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

What will our reward be in the Day of God’s Judgment? Only those whose words and actions line up with the word of God in true understanding will remain in His presence for forever (Ro.3:4), all others will be led away screaming, “My God my God why have you forsaken me?”

Take heed time is running out and today is the day of salvation, repent, be baptized in the water of death to self, seen in Ro.6:4 and Col.2:12, for this is the operations I talked about earlier that are the new Testament Covenant that we all must comply with as seen in Ac.2:38-40 and ffs. Or we too will be found in our own will and not in the will of God, which is the unforgivable sin, in this age or any to come! Mt.12:31-32 and  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.

Just as Jesus said to His disciples I too have much, much more to say to you but you cannot bear it now but when the Holy Ghost comes upon you He will lead you into all truths! Jn.16:12I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. 13Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. 14He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. 15All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you. Because when you have the Son you have the Father as well seen in 1 Jn.2:23Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also. 24Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father. 25And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.  Just it is seen in 1 Jn.5:18We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not. We have the power to go and sin no more! We have a form of Godliness and walk therein, the others of the world have a form of Godliness and walk as the world that lies in wickedness, seen below, we are instructed to leave those alone and to not associate with them, seen here in scripture: 2 Tm.3:1-17! 19And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.

The children of God will know the One True God!

 20And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ; this is the true God, and eternal life!

If we don’t understand this we are just worshipping an imaginary god we have made up in our minds and will thus be seen as one of these below in the last verse the Apostle John wrote for this exact reason!

 21Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.

We either come to the knowledge and the truth of Jesus as God the Father or find ourselves being left out of the Kingdom of God, for forevermore!

Women’s Hair is a Holiness Issue: What about a Man’s Beard?

Help us build a House of God where it is needed, among the poor, homeless, widowed and orphaned!

Mt.25:40And the King shall answer and say unto them: Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. See also 1 Jn.4:16Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren (Are we not all one flesh under Adam and Eve? If so then all the world is our brethren!). 17But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?18My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth! 19And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him!

And James; Jms.2:14What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? 15If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, 16And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? 17Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone!

Women’s Hair is a Holiness Issue:

What about a Man’s Beard?

A theological paper

By Rev. G. L. Boyett

 First off we need to determine what a “Holiness Issue is” we see in Leviticus chapter17-27 are listed as Holiness chapters on your average internet search of the Holy Bible. But I suggest to you that from Genesis to Revelation of Jesus Christ to the Apostle John, are all Holiness chapters! For one important fact, God changes not, Mal.3:6 seen in the Old Testament and when we understand that Jesus is God in the flesh as seen in scriptures; and I will only use two for my reference on this and I will explain why later after commenting on my point of subject; 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! As well as 1 Tm.3:16And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit (1Cor.6:11 for justification! It takes Jesus’ name and His Spirit in you, Ro.8:9! Or you are none of His yet still!), seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles; believed on in the world, received up into glory (Jn.8:24 The I AM also seen in verse 58!). Just to make it clear that there can be no doubt as to the identity of Jesus Christ as our God in the flesh as He said He was; and they continued to pick up stones to stone Him every time He told them who He was, should speak for itself! Just in case there is someone out there who is under some trinitarian objection; I will use the reference of Old Testament scripture to prove who Jesus is and the New Testament version of it in reference to the other. First we will start off with 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 this not what John the Baptist did in Mt.3:1In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, 2And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. 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. Exo.3:14And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you. As we see Jesus who identified Himself as the same I Am; seen in Jn.8:58Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I Am! 59Then took they up stones to cast at him: Just as I said earlier, He identified Himself to His own and they received Him not; refers us back to Jn.1:1-18 which verse 18, in the original Greek says, “the begotten God,” in many manuscripts, which being translated means incarnated God in the Flesh who is in the bosom of the Father who is Omnipresent God who is everywhere showing us who the Father really is and that is the Holy Spirit which purchased us with His own blood as shown to us in 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 (Showing us again who Jesus really is and even more precise who the Father is, see Jn.4:24 God is a Spirit and there is but one Holy, Rev.4:8 see also Is.9:6, the Mighty God who is also the Eternal Father here called the everlasting Father who is the Prince of Peace!)! Which manifested Himself in the seed of King David’s lineage, making Jesus the Son of God by proxy of the flesh being used; which is the adoption and the sure mercies given to King David that His lineage (2 Sam.7:15-16!) would sit on the throne of Israel for forever: Being fulfilled in Jesus Christ who is now; Both LORD and THE CHRIST: I refer you to scripture for these conclusions; Ac.2:36 and Jesus who is LORD of ALL seen in yet again scripture; Ac.10:36, who is all authoritive in power and majesty, seen in these scriptures as proof and verification of Jesus’ Divinity: Mt.28:18 and Is.9:6For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace!

Jesus is the fulness of the Godhead in the flesh of mankind, making Him God with us as shown to us in Is.7:14 and Mt.1:23! Even Jesus said it best; Jn.12:45And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me. It seems to me the confusing part everyone has a problem grasping is that they have not understood a simple well known and most over looked fact; that God is the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit is God not the spirit of God but actually God in Essence and Substance! There are only two blaspheming clauses in the Holy Bible and that is to curse the name of God and to violate His will or be disobedient to His given word to us! Called Presumptuous Sin; shown to us in 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. And I will show you why! Look to these verses; 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. Ending of the same chapter!

King James Version (KJV)

Who is the Father? The Father is the Holy Spirit, look to 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! When we understand that the simple reality of this whole dilemma of some vain man’s philosophical attempt to decipher the manifestation of the Godhead in man is not as difficult as one might assume, when we understand by listening to Jesus, we can and do discover who God really is, as shown to us in Jn.4:24God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. In order to worship God in the Spirit and in the Truth one must know who He is, or He is not worshipping in truth; now are they? Beings God is A Spirit it only stands to reason that if the angels of God are around the throne of God as called out in scripture; they are in the presence of God saying what? Rev.4:8And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, Holy, Holy, LORD God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come, (Is.9:6). Just as Jesus said; “When you see Me you have seen the one who sent Me!” Just as Jesus said here in Jn.14:6Jesus saith unto him, I AM the way, 9(I AM) the truth, and the (I AM) life (Jn.6:68): no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me! 7If ye had known Me, ye should have known My Father also: and from henceforth ye know Him, and have seen Him! See Jn.14:8-18.

That is the reason why the Apostle John said when you have the Father you have the Son and if you have the Son you have the Father, seen in 1 Jn.2:23Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also: 24Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father. All because they are one in the same person, the Father the Holy Spirit in Jesus Christ who was given the Spirit without measure; Jn.3:34For he whom God (Who is the Holy Spirit) hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him. Col.2:2That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ; 3In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. 4And this I say, lest any man should beguile you with enticing words. 5For though I be absent in the flesh, yet am I with you in the spirit, joying and beholding your order, and the stedfastness of your faith in Christ. 6As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him7Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving: 8Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ (By which the Trinity came by Philosophers!). 9For in him (Jesus), dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily! 10And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: 11In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:

12Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead! Which I might add is the New Testament covenant for baptism in the water that regenerates us for we are in the operations of God by invoking the name of God over us at baptism, if, we use the only name by which salvation comes seen in, Ac.4:12; that is in Jesus’ name as shown to us by His Apostles in Ac.2:38Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 39For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the LORD our God shall call. 40And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation!

We cannot call ourselves a Christian if we do not follow after what our LORD Jesus said to do, Jn.14:15If ye love me, keep my commandments. Along with this one, Jn.15:20Remember 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! We will keep their sayings also, who were the people Jesus was talking to here? It was His recently Ordained Apostles in verse 16; 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: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. Who had recently been given the Keys to bind on earth and in heaven and to loosen on earth and in heaven as well! This was given unto them because they were to receive Jesus’ own Spirit in them, very shortly, Jn.14:16And 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, 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! Because it is Jesus’ own Spirit in them: Which was the Spirit that revealed all truths which is God’s Grace to us, Jn.1:17! Jesus is the Spirit of truth, and of God’s grace which is His word to us for our admonishment; to know His will for us, seen in the gospel of Jesus Christ which is our Salvation, from Gen. to Rev. it is all about one person Jesus Christ; 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. 44How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only? He revealed Himself here yet again!

People time and time again seek man’s word instead of just letting the bible speak for itself! If we know who Jesus really is and if we obey His Apostles given words to us, then and only then will we receive Jesus’ Holy Spirit in us! Just to show you that Jesus’ Spirit is the Holy Spirit and that they are interchangeable with one another I will give you a few scripture references, which scripture will show that Jesus’ Spirit is just what I said it is!

1. Look to 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: (When the Day Star arises in your heart is when you are baptized in the Holy Spirit and the Spirit of Truth which is Jesus’ Spirit, Jn.1:17; will then start to lead you into all truths, as shown to us 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. 10For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little: 11For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people. 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! Just as it is being said time and time again by preachers and so called teachers of the gospel who say that the gift of the Holy Ghost is not for us today or the gifting as well; because they have not received it, but others have and it is mandatory as called out in scripture, Jn.3:3-8 and if we have not the Spirit of Jesus Christ in us we are none of His yet still, Ro.8:9! The gifts from above are without repentance as shown to us by the Apostle James in Jms.1:16Do not err, my beloved brethren. 17Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. This in fact is who all the Epistles were written to, those who had been verified and confirmed to have had this supernatural repentance given to them from God as Cornelius and his friends and family had received while listening to Peter’s Sermon to them at Cornelius’ house, seen in Ac.10:1-48 as well as being established as the evidences given to the council in Jerusalem for justification for Peter to have baptized Gentiles who were in fact uncircumcised, which was against the law of the Jews; for  Jews to commune or eat with a gentile! So Peter was in fact establishing a president here for the first time: Which all the other churches would soon follow suit in the same doctrines being set forth here; who had received the same baptism of the Holy Spirit as well as all of them, in the same manor! This was revealed to them by Peter and all his witnesses that went along with him for this reason. All these things done were well established for this reason so we too would have a clear understanding of the whole matter, as it is recorded for us in the Holy Bible for this exact reason. And then repeated in the very next chapter just so all would understand the facts of the case! Ac.11:1And the apostles and brethren that were in Judaea heard that the Gentiles had also received the word of God. 2And when Peter was come up to Jerusalem, they that were of the circumcision contended with him, 3Saying, Thou wentest in to men uncircumcised, and didst eat with them. 4But Peter rehearsed the matter from the beginning, and expounded it by order unto them, saying, 5I was in the city of Joppa praying: and in a trance I saw a vision, A certain vessel descend, as it had been a great sheet, let down from heaven by four corners; and it came even to me: 6Upon the which when I had fastened mine eyes, I considered, and saw fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air. 7And I heard a voice saying unto me, Arise, Peter; slay and eat. 8But I said, Not so, Lord: for nothing common or unclean hath at any time entered into my mouth. 9But the voice answered me again from heaven, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common. 10And this was done three times: and all were drawn up again into heaven. 11And, behold, immediately there were three men already come unto the house where I was, sent from Caesarea unto me. 12And the Spirit bade me go with them, nothing doubting. Moreover these six brethren accompanied me, and we entered into the man’s house: 13And he shewed us how he had seen an angel in his house, which stood and said unto him, Send men to Joppa, and call for Simon, whose surname is Peter; 14Who shall tell thee words, whereby thou and all thy house shall be saved.

 15And as I began to speak, the Holy Ghost fell on them, as on us at the beginning. 16Then remembered I the word of the Lord, how that he said, John indeed baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost. 17Forasmuch then as God gave them the like gift as he did unto us, who believed on the Lord Jesus Christ; what was I, that I could withstand God? 18When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life!

You see hear that it says God had given them the repentance unto life; which is the baptism of His Holy Spirit in them as the Apostles and all the rest had received in the upper room as it is shown to us in Ac.2:1-4! Ac.2:1And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind; and it filled all the house where they were sitting. 3And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. 4And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance!

This was the documented proof needed to convince the council in Jerusalem that they in the house of Cornelius had in fact received the same gifts that the Apostles had in the upper room in Jerusalem, as well as those of Samaria, seen in Ac.8:16-17; who had been baptized in Jesus’ name but had not received the Holy Ghost experience unto Peter and John came to laid hands on them! It was supposed to be an Apostle who led the way for Samaritans who were cross between Jew and Gentiles of an unpure race considered by the Jews; which were now installed into the new formed church of Jesus Christ who is the chief cornerstone, that is being rejected even today; for all those who think He is 2nd to anything, and the one they placed as the last person of their trinity is the First and the Last who became flesh, so we could be saved by the Blood of the Holy Spirit who is our God in Jesus Christ reconciling the whole world unto Himself by Him, seen in 2 Cor.5:19To 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 (Jesus, Jn.14:6-7; see also Jn.10:30 for they are one; just as Zach.14:9 says! Even Gal.3:20 God is One!)!

That is why it is mandatory to have this baptism of the Holy Ghost experience with speaking in tongues given for verification purposes; you will not have to ask anyone when you receive it; everyone around you will know just as they did in the upper room experience, as shown to us at the beginning of the out pouring, that was called out in Joel.2:28; because God changes not, Mal.3:6 and Heb.13:8! We are still in the same age of Grace and Truth that is being poured out on all flesh so that we may know the mysteries of God and of the Father and of Jesus Christ as spoken by Paul in 1 Cor.1:1-ffs so that we come behind lacking nothing but we too will have the gifts given to us by our heavenly Father that wants all the Son’s of God to have His supernatural gifts so that His sons may bring glory to the Father as the flesh of Jesus did in His flesh: Jn.14:12Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. 13And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. 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 (Jn.1:17); whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for He (I) dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. 18I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you!

You see these gifts are conditional; we must become His disciples and know the cost of discipleship! Which centers around Holiness, being separated from this unclean world that lies in wickedness as seen in 1 Jn.5:19 and Ac.2:40 and further scriptures, they obeyed Jesus and continued in the doctrines set forth by the Apostles who had the keys to heaven! Why on earth would anyone want to go about trying to change them; with curses for doing that are attached to anyone who does this; Deu.4:2 again in 12:32; this is what is meant by not going to the right hand or the left, Josh.1:7 from Deu.5:32-33 and Prov.4:27; see also Gal.1:8-9; 1 Cor.16:22 and Rev.22:18-19? We must teach the whole truth and every scripture must agree with all of the rest or we have the wrong interpretation of it! Jesus did not come to do away with anything; 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: 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 the Holy Spirit in you there can be no real Spirit of Truth which is of God, in you! Without the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ in you how are you to understand His meanings of His scriptures unless you have His mind which is His Spirit (Jn.14:18)? 1 Cor.2:1-16; this can only be done by or with the Baptism of His Holy Spirit in you; with signs following of His presence as seen in scripture for verificational proofs (Jn.3:3-8)!

Now According to Scripture, Holiness and now Righteousness is Required to get to His Kingdom!

(1 Pt.1:13-16)

(2 Pt.1:1-12)

Without Holiness and Righteousness you cannot have a pure heart and be found as perfect as required by Jesus Christ. (Mt.5:8; 2 Tm.2:19-22)! Since the fall of man, man is continually wicked and is in need of regeneration of his heart and of the Spirit of God being restored into mankind, Tit.3:5!

Without it you end up as one of these seen in Is.28:13: from 9-12 who have been regenerated but these in verse 13 are not!

 This last verse (13 in Is.28) is for those who think they have this Holy Spirit but of course do not; and will not glean the true context of the word of God, and receive the word and right away and then they are lost and confused by the word of men being spoken to them and are lead away after some man’s commentaries because they do not have the Unction (1Jn.2:20-27!) or the ability to have God’s Spirit in them leading them into all truths as seen in Jn.6:45It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me (Jesus)! These are the ones who will fall backwards because the word of God makes no logical sense to them and they will lose interest in reading something they cannot understand because they have not the only interpreter that is available to decipher or Exegesis, it for them because He wrote it as shown here in 2 Pt.1:20-21 and 1 Pt.1:9Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls. 10Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you: (Grace will be talked about in a minute! It too is a lesson that must be taught or we are not worshipping in spirit and in truth without a clear understanding of the idea or context of the meaning of God’s grace according to scripture and not man’s understanding of the word!) 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! (Just for your own personal word study and another private Bible lesson that is good for everyone is to do a study on the word Glory especially Is.42:8 and Is.48:11 and then go to Jn.11:40; and then 2 Cor.4:6; then 1 Cor.2:8, and the Ten Lepers in Lk.17:11-(*18*)-19; these will show you that the Glory of God which will not and never will be given to another, is the glory of and in Jesus Christ! Who resides in the Shechinah Glory in which no man can approach seen in 1 Tm.6:16Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen. These will show who Jesus is also!) But those who have not the Spirit of Jesus are none of His yet still as shown in Ro.8:1-9 and ffs. Therefore they cannot pray in the Spirit as shown to us in these scriptures then, can they, Ro.8:20-ffs? Is.28:13But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken!

Without the Holy Spirit interpreting scripture man is clueless to the actual understanding of God’s grace and His grace cannot be poured out on them because they really don’t know what it is that He requires of them because they have not His word living in them; as shown to us 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! Which is the Gospel of God’s Grace, which is His will for us, which is given to us by His word, which is His will as shown in 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! His every word cleanses us and sanctifies us as seen here also Jn.15:3Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. Then and only then can we properly translate His word because not only is it living in us, it is guiding us into all His truths; while we stay on His narrow path: Mt.7:12Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets! 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! Because they do not have the interpreter of His living word, living in them, to guide them on their way in life and to give them a testimony of Jesus Christ in their lives Rev.19:10 because Jesus is the Spirit of all prophecy and “The Mold to and for History to Come” (Is.55:6-13)! 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! Jesus knew this that His flesh was to be given for a sacrifice for our sin and that it was not the important thing, because that which is flesh is flesh but that which is Spirit is Spirit (Mt.4:4 Jesus is not only the bread of life but the word of God manifested in the flesh, Jn1:1-14) therefore Jesus said this, Jn.3:3Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. 4Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? 5Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God! 6That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit (See 1 Cor.15:28 Jesus’ flesh will always submit to the Spirit which is God in Him, seen in Mt.3:17 When God the Omnipresent Father who is the one who conceived Jesus making the Holy Spirit Father of Jesus’ flesh the seed of Mary the handmaiden of the Lord the Servant of God given the Divine Essence that fertilized her seed with the sure mercies of King David’s lineage given divinity to sit on the throne of Israel for forevermore! Who spoke from heaven and said “In Him I Am!” “Well pleased!”). 7Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. 8The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit!

How can we do what the Spirit tells us to do and go where the Spirit wants to lead us if we have not His Spirit living in us? That is the reason we must be born-again of the Water and of the Holy Spirit or we are none of Jesus’ yet still, Ro.8:9 which is the Spirit of God! For there is only One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism (1 Cor.6:11 of One Justification!)  4There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; 6One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. Col.3:11Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all, Jn.14:18! Because He alone is LORD of ALL, Ac.10:36! When we have His Spirit in us who wrote and told them (The Prophets and Apostles) what to write for us; it can only be translated by Him who wrote it; who is supposed to be living in us! See 1 Jn.2:20; and 27; and Jn.8:47 only the children of God will receive His word in them and they will understand it is for them to follow or we are condemning ourselves being self willed; as shown to us in Num.15:29Ye 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 (We are grafted into the one vine!): 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 (We are all grafted into the one vine, Jn.15:1-ffs!). 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!(We are to keep sin out of our lives outside the camp, Jn.8:11; and 5:14 or a worse thing will come upon us!) 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 ribband 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! 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.

The sin of ignorance is forgivable when repented of but the sin of presumptuous sin or willful sin is not; which is talked about in Heb.12:1-29 and the result of sin is death, the eternal death to the sinner, who does not abide in God’s words of truth and they all will be found out as a liar if their words do not line up with God’s understandings of what He meant, seen in Ro.3:4God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written: That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged! (Mt.12:36But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. 37For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

Only Holiness and Righteousness, which is Godliness, will stay in the LORD’s Presence because that is what a Saint of God is!

2 Pt.1:20Knowing 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! Which is Jesus’ own Spirit as shown in 1 Pt.1:9-11 and here in Zach.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 being spoken to the prophet of God some 530 years before the actually fact and God said they will look upon Me whom they have pierced; Jn.19:37And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced! This was Jesus on the cross; that the Holy Spirit (1 Pt1:9-11 which is the Spirit of Jesus shown here in these verses!), spoke to Zachariah; was it not? Without a doubt is was! Read Is.53 it tells us the same story about the crucifixion! Holy Men spoke as the Holy Spirit which is the Spirit of Jesus Christ as He told them the things that were about to come upon Him for our Salvation (Jn.5:39), 1 Pt.1:9-11!

Jesus is the revealer of all Truths, Jn.1:17! He must reveal Himself to you!

 No one can know who Jesus is unless Jesus shows them; Jn.6:46Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father. Mt.11:27All 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! ~

Without Holiness (Heb.12:14) and Righteousness (Mt.5:20) No man will enter into the Kingdom of God!

Interpreting Christian Holiness – Chapter I

The BIBLICAL Interpretation of Holiness:

 ALL CHRISTIAN TRUTH must be based on the teaching of the Bible. God has spoken in the Scriptures and has made known to us both His will for our lives and His provision for our needs!

No important Bible truth depends on scattered and iso­lated proof texts. One man is said to have claimed that he could prove atheism from the Bible. He offered the text, “There is no God.” What he did not say was that the context reads, “The fool hath said in his heart: There is no God” (Ps. 14:1The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.).

The doctrine of Christian holiness is based upon the total thrust of the Scriptures (Faith, Heb.11:6But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.). It is not merely a thread or line of truth running through the Word of God: It is rather a network of teaching; which is an essential part of the fabric of the whole!

Holiness has its proof texts-although it would be more correct to call them data-evidences which support the con­viction that sanctifying grace is real in human life. They should not be ignored. But even more important is the mes­sage of the whole. Behind clichés and stereotypes based on a few isolated passages is the rich and varied teaching of the Bible itself.

Before turning to the biblical presentation of holiness, it should be noted that there are two sets of English terms in the King James Version used to translate a single Hebrew word in the Old Testament and a single Greek word in the New Testament.

One of these sets of English terms comes from the Ger­manic roots of our language. It includes the verb “to hallow, make holy,” the noun “holiness,” and the adjective “holy.”

The other set of English terms is derived from the Latin roots of English. It includes the verb “to sanctify,” the noun “sanctification,” and the adjective “sanctified.”

Theologians sometimes make distinctions between these two sets of English words. For example, sanctification is sometimes defined as the act or process whereby a person or thing is made holy; and holiness is defined as the state or condition resulting from the act or process of sanctification. But since the two sets of words from which sanctification and holiness come are alternative translations of single terms in the original biblical languages, it is better to regard as equivalent expressions the verbs “to sanctify” and “to make holy,” the nouns “sanctification” and “holiness,” and the adjectives “sanctified” and “holy.”

I

The Bible is an amazingly realistic Book. It describes with great faithfulness the sorrows and sins, the struggles and hopes, the weakness and pain of the men and women who walk in its pages. Yet through it all, there shines a light of redemption and victory, the light of that “holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord” (Heb. 12:14).

In swift strokes, the early chapters of Genesis paint the picture of creation and catastrophe, holiness given and holi­ness lost.

Genesis 3 tells us of the source of that corruption of our moral natures for which sanctification is the divine cure. Created in the image of God, but using the freedom which was part of that image, which is freewill; but was used and mislead by another’s words, who were listened to, to seek to “be as gods”: When actually they were closer to being like God before they listened to the deceiver, who is a liar from the beginning: (Gen. 3:5For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.) they themselves Adam and Eve, brought upon their descendants the corruption that comes to a branch, which is cut off from the source of spiritual life, that is within in the natural Vine, (cf. John 15:1I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. 2Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. 3Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you: 4Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. 5I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. 6If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.).

That man created in the image of God “begat a son in his own likeness, after his image” (Gen. 5:3And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, and after his image; and called his name Seth: Which was of the side which was not cursed as Cain’s was, who were of those who were of which the author was speaking about here!) whose “every imagination [yetzer, tendency, propensity, direction] of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually” (Gen. 6:5And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.;

8:21And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man’s sake; for the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more everything living, as I have done.;

See also 1 Jn.5:19And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness; nothing much has changed over the millenniums, Ecc.1:1-9The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun: 10Is there anything whereof it may be said, See, this is new? It hath been already of old time, which was before us.11There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after!).

The sinful condition of the human race is due to the depravity that comes from “deprivity,” that is, human nature apart from the life of the Holy Spirit. See Ac.11:15-18: Which is the ending of Ac.10:1-ffs! (Ac.10:1-48 the gift of God’s Repentance of destroying us because we were once sinners and dead in our sins! But Baptized in the Holy Spirit with gifts following and with the evidences of the Spirit with Speaking in Tongues for confirmation! When God calls He equips us for His services, with gifts of the Holy Spirit!); and the Regeneration talked about in Tit.3:5 and Ro.6:4 as well as Col.2:12 being buried in Christ Jesus; seen in Jn.3:3-8 being driven wherever the Spirit listeth us!

Yet such is the marvel of God’s love (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?); and patience that the very scene of human rebellion was the occasion for the first promise of divine redemption, of One who at the cost of His own suffering would crush the serpent’s head (Gen. 3:15And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.; Rom. 16:20And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.).

Through long centuries of preparation, the fact of God’s Holiness was revealed in a dozen different ways-by His wonderful works, by the awe men felt in His presence, by the ritual and sacrifices of Tabernacle and Temple, as well as by the prayers, aspirations, and proclamations of those men to whom God made himself known. God was seen to be, in Isaiah’s favorite phrase, “the poly One of Israel” (1:4; 5:19; 10:20; etc.). Which should read “Holy One of Israel” and another type of Holiness as seen in Is.49:26And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I the LORD am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob (Who is Jesus Christ!) As well as Lk.1:35And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing (Should read Holy One!) which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God (Son of God according to the flesh of King David the adopted son of God (Ps.110:1The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.: Now inhabited by God’s very Essence in the flesh of the Davidic lineage, the sure mercies given to David for a promise in fulfillment of Abraham’s as well, Gen.12:3And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.)! Holiness was seen to be the very inward­ness of God’s being. It is His nature, His “God-ness or as we say today His Godliness.”

Equally strong was the call for men who walked with God to be like Him in moral character (Such as Enoch, Gen.5:24And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him!). In the Old Testament, the familiar biblical term “sanctify” (was used 102 times in various forms) often has the meaning we have come to attach to “consecrate.” This is clearly true when men are told, as they frequently are, to sanctify themselves; to sanctify places, garments, altars, vessels, days, priests, and people to the Lord. The meaning is to separate or set apart as dedicated to God! For God’s own personal use: See 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! Called out in Ac.2:40-ffs in the first church of Jesus Christ!

This is not the whole story, however. Present from the beginning, and growing stronger through the centuries, was the recognition that people who belong to God are not only consecrated but are to be different in a real and personal way. Ritual purity is symbolic of moral purity. The repeated command, “Ye shall be holy; for I the Lord your God am holy” (Lev. 11:44-45; 19:2; 20:26), makes no distinction be­tween the holiness of God and the holiness of His people (From which we get the meaning of the word Saint in the Greek original language used in the New Testament. ἁγίοις hagiois Holy; Or as used in 1 Cor.1:2 Saints,), and is set in the context of moral conduct in 1 Pet. 1:13-16 and ffs. Because God changes not, Mal.3:6 and is the same yesterday, today and forever as seen in the New Testament, as well as in Heb.13:8! Because God changes not, just that simple! And Jesus did not come to destroy the Law or the prophets meaning testimonies of scriptures written by the prophets of God! Which is God’s word made flesh, Jn1:1-14! Therefore Jesus is the way the truth and the life we must lead in order to come to Him; who is the Father as seen in Jn.10:30! For they are one in person, Holy Spirit now inhabiting the flesh as shown to us in Mt.3:17 In Him I Am, well pleased! And again on the mount in Mt.17:5: In Whom I Am; well pleased; hear ye Him! The embodiment of God in the flesh as seen in 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! The glory, that only belongs to God (Is.42:8 and 48:11)! Which the glory of God is seen in the face of Jesus, 2 Cor.4:6!

It is clear certainly, that the holiness possible to man is not a property of his own nature. It is God’s gift (Ac.11:15-18 The endowment of His own Spiritual nature being regenerated in us, Tit.3:5!). But even before the finished work of Christ on the Cross, it was pos­sible for inspired writers to describe Noah as one who “found grace in the eyes of the Lord … a just man and perfect in his generations” (Gen. 6:8-9; see also Gen.17:1 and do a personal Bible study on the word perfect, seen in the Hebrew as well as the Greek shown to us in Mt.5:48; for us to be, it is a commandment of our great God, so we too had better know what He declares it takes to meet His standards as seen here in the New Testament as well; 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!); to record God’s command to Abraham, “Walk before me, and be thou perfect” (Gen. 17:1And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.); and to speak of job as “perfect and upright” (Job 1:1There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil., 8And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?; 2:3And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? and still he holdeth fast his integrity, although thou movedst me against him, to destroy him without cause.). how are we too going to prove in fact that we are His too without testing and trying us to prove us to increase our abilities and strengths: In order for us to grow in the knowledge of Jesus Christ seen in 2 Pt.3:18 unless we are tried by this world we are supposed to overcome, seen in Rev.2 and chapter 3; in order to be an overcomer we have to overcome something in the world, which tries and tests our character; to actually show we have been truly born-again because we no longer live and act like the world around us, but have in fact come out from among that untoward generation; that lies in its wickedness, 1 Jn.5:19!

II

The sacrifices and ceremonies that make up so much of Exodus, Leviticus, and Deuteronomy had a dual purpose. They were object lessons in the need for a blood-sprinkled way into the “holiest of all,” the redemptive presence of the Lord God. And they pointed ahead to the Cross-the coming of the Lamb of God, who was to bear away the sin of the world (John 1:29The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.; see also Lk.24:46-47 that repentance and remission of sin should be preached in His name, by which there is no other name given by which we must be saved, Ac.4:12; which is told to us on Col.3:17 that all we do must be done in that name; including baptism, Ac.2:38-39 and then to obey God’s word and come out from among this untoward generation seen in verse 40! Then instructed to obey the doctrines the Apostles set forth for our admonishment for us to keep our righteousness and holiness which can only be done by obedience to every word of God which cleanses us Jn.15:3 only when we obey it and it lives in us, Jn.14:15! And few there will be that find that narrow path, Mt.7:13-14; 20:16So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen. And 22:14For many are called, but few are chosen!).

The Psalms give us one of the best measures of the piety of the Old Testament, the type of character possible to men who walk with God. There are many insights into the nature of God’s Holiness and its demands upon those who worship Him (Ps.15:1Lord, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill? 2He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart;

Ps.24:3Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place? 4He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.).

The Psalmist distinguishes between his sins and transgressions-the iniquities he has done (51:1Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.,

3For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me. 4Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.

And 9Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.);

-and the disposition behind the deeds, the inward “sin” for which the only remedy is the purging blood and the washing that brings a clean heart (51:2Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin;

5Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me. 6Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.

And 10Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.).

Old Testament teaching about the godly life came to full flower in the prophets. There was Isaiah, already a prophet (1:1The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz, which he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah. in comparison with 6:1In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the LORD sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.); who experienced the taking away and purging of his “iniquity” or “sin” (note the singular), and who pointed the way to the age of the Spir­it which was to come (6:1In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the LORD sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. 2Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. 3And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory. 4And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke. 5Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts. 6Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar: 7And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged. 8Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.; 32:15Until the spirit be poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness be a fruitful field, and the fruitful field be counted for a forest, and 17And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance forever.; 35:8And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein. 9No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there: 10And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away; 44:3For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring: 4And they shall spring up as among the grass, as willows by the water courses; 59:19So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him. (See also verses 20And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the LORD. 21As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the LORD; My spirit that is upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed’s seed, saith the LORD, from henceforth and forever; when this is done; you have the mind of God and know His ways for you to go in!); 62:12And they shall call them, The holy people, The redeemed of the LORD: and thou shalt be called, Sought out, A city not forsaken.-with the solemn warning of 63:7I will mention the loving kindnesses of the LORD, and the praises of the LORD, according to all that the LORD hath bestowed on us, and the great goodness toward the house of Israel, which he hath bestowed on them according to his mercies, and according to the multitude of his loving kindnesses. 8For he said, Surely they are my people, children that will not lie: so he was their Saviour. 9In all their affliction he was afflicted, and the angel of his presence saved them: in his love and in his pity he redeemed them; and he bare them, and carried them all the days of old. 10But they rebelled, and vexed his Holy Spirit: therefore he was turned to be their enemy, and he fought against them.). The only way to become His kind of Holy; and stay that way is to be repented of all sin and have works worthy of Repentance as seen 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!

There was Jeremiah, who wrote of the “new covenant” (31:31Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: 32Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD: 33But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. 34And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.;

cf. Heb.10:14For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified. 15Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before, 16This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; 17And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. 18Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin. 19Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, 20By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; 21And having an high priest over the house of God; 22Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.

; really holiness is keeping all God’s truths which are His every word to us as seen 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. Paul was speaking to Timothy about all scripture even the Old Testament as shown here because the New Testament was still being written when Paul spoke these words to Timothy!

:then and only then can we really be set apart from this untoward generation; set apart for His uses only, by being cleansed by His word to us, Jn.15:3! Fulfilling all scripture given to us seen clear to Heb.12:1-to 29 or you will be found in your presumptuous sin still and consumed in God’s fire, Heb.12:29!);

Ezekiel’s promise of the cleansing to come from the “new spirit” within (36:25Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you. 26A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.

, 29I will also save you from all your uncleannesses: and I will call for the corn, and will increase it, and lay no famine upon you. Clear to 38As the holy flock, as the flock of Jerusalem in her solemn feasts; so shall the waste cities be filled with flocks of men: and they shall know that I am the LORD. for they will be holy men after the Lord puts His Spirit in them and they will know His ways and be ashamed of their past iniquities!);

Joel’s famous prediction of Pentecost (2:28And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: 29And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit. 30And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. 31The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the LORD come. 32And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call! Are you called? Yes, all are called because the Lord would that none be lost! But are you one of the chosen few?

We are about to see that which was foretold in Joel, about the Moon and Sun is about to come to pass!);

Zecha­riah’s vision of the “fountain … opened for sin and for un­cleanness” (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, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn. Is any day now;

13:1In that day there shall be a fountain opened to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and for uncleanness.; 9And I will bring the third part through the fire (Did not God lose only one third of the Angels who left their first place or habitation seen in Jude verse 8; the people left their first love in Rev.2:4! Therefore we are all called to repentance, Rev.2:5 which is for any day when one is enlightened to the word of God in their life and have found themselves to be in error of His will for us! We must overcome the world’s teachings and return to God’s truths, this is being an overcomer seen in Rev. chapter 2 and 3, which all the children of God are to be! They are to be tried and tested and proven worthy and in the truth of His word to us, Ro.3:4!), and will refine them as silver is refined (Heb.12:1-*4*-ffs), and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God. (2 Cor.6:14-18);

Malachi’s prophecy of the Messiah’s refining fire to purify and purge and make pos­sible “an offering in righteousness” (3:1Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me (Is.40:3; Mt.3:3!): and the LORD, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts. 2But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner’s fire (Heb.12:29), and like fullers’ soap (Mt.17:2): 3And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness (Rev.7):

But the people of God will be seen as one of these; Mal.3:16Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name. 17And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. 18Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not. Because they have studied His word as those seen in the Book of Acts: Chapter 17:10And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews. 11These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so! They compared men’s words to their actions, did they line up with the word of God? They studied the Old Testament, for that is all there was for them to read back then! The Epistles and even some of the gospel’s had not been written yet!

Because God changes not; Mal.3:6, therefore Jacob will not be consumed; our God is faithful as long as we seek only Him and all of His words for us! That is true Holiness being set apart for Him only, 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.

And He will be our God if we allow Him to be in us as Mary allowed herself to be used of God and a holy vessel unto the Lord as seen in Lk.1:38And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her!).

While holiness in the Old Testament did not come up to the full-orbed truth of the New Testament, the ideal is clear and the promise is sure. Its fulfillment in Christ and the age of the Holy Spirit (Who is God, Jn.4:24 told to us by Jesus Himself!), is the apex of the new covenant revelation to us! As well as it being mandatory to be baptized in the burial to sin and self in the water of regeneration of being called to sin no more, Jn.8:11 and Jn.5:14 or a worse thing will come upon you! That is exactly what the water of remission of sins is all about; when something goes into remission it stops what it was doing before! That is what repentance is all about too, to turn and go a new direction away from sin and the lusts of the flesh which is now death to self in the burial in a watery grave in Jesus’ name because whatever we ask for we will receive it in His name! Therefore, there is no salvation in any other name given; by which we MUST be saved Ac.4:12; Means only one thing; we must be baptized in Jesus’ name (As the Apostles have shown us, Ac.2:38-39!) or we have not been baptized correctly, and therefore no salvation was given, because the blood of the sacrifice was not placed on the soul being saved, because salvation was not asked for in His name by which the blood is applied, Jn.14:14 and Col.3:17, all that we wish and pray for Him to do for us, has got to be done in His name, that is why we must seal every prayer in the name of Jesus Christ for our prayers to be answered, seen in Jn.14:14If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it! This is why they did it like they did as seen in Ac.2:38-39 and stayed in the doctrines of the Apostles from then on seen in scriptures: Ac.2:40And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation. 41Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls. 42And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. 43And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles. 44And all that believed were together, and had all things common; 45And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need. 46And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, 47Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.

That is the reason they added unto them daily because they stayed in the doctrines of the Apostles who had the only keys to loosen and to bind in heaven on earth!

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. See also 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. It doesn’t mater what lines up with men even men of God or even your local priests; what matters is does it line up with the teachings of God’s word to us given in our instruction book to heaven; called this Holy Bible of ours!

III

The Gospels present God’s purpose (Or His plan for us and how we are to live, Jn.14:6!) for His people in two ways: in their record of the Life that must forever be the ideal for Christian aspiration, and in the teachings of Jesus and the inspired men who recorded His words.

Jesus spoke of the blessedness of the pure in heart (Matt.5:8). He called the children of God to perfection of love (Matt.5:43-48; 22:35-40; Mark 12:29-31; Luke 6:40; Mk.8:34-38 When we abide in Jesus’ ways, Jn.14:6!). He taught that the source of evil is the depravity of a carnal heart (Mark 7:21-23 actually it is plain disobedience to His word; for obedience to His word is more worthy of all the sacrifices that can be offered up and only the prayer of the righteous are not an abomination to Him as seen in Prov.15:8 and Prov.28:9! This too was explained in Mk.12:33And 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.34And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God, (For Jesus is the entrance to the Kingdom of God, Jn.14:6; Jesus is the gateway to Heaven seen in Jn.10:1-ffs!)! And no man after that durst ask him any question. Because you see Jesus is the Kingdom of God as clearly shown in scripture as we look to Mt.4:17; Mt.12:28 and Lk.11:20, when we are in the presence of Jesus we are in the presence of the Kingdom of God and we must come back to Him from which our Spirit originated as seen in Ecc.12:7! In Spirit and in Truth to as a front or a form of godliness which has no power as these…); in contrast with the emphasis on the outward or cultic holiness of the scribes and Pharisees. Which have a form of Godliness but lack the power to live an overcoming life style 2 Tm.3:5-7! From these we are to withdraw ourselves away from all of these and be not influenced by their teachings, which are of the world’s doctrines; of the foolishness of the worldly wise!

Christ promised the Holy Spirit as rivers of living water to those who believed (John 7:38-39), the Father’s Gift to those of His children who ask (Luke 11:13). He spoke of “another Comforter” to be given to those who love Him and keep His commandments, a Bestowment whom “the world cannot receive” (John 14:15-18).

Jesus prayed for His own (John 17:9) and for those who would believe on Him through their word (17:20) that God would “sanctify them” (17:17)-so that His joy might be fulfilled in them (17:13); that they might be kept from the evil (17:15); that they might be made perfect in one (17:21, 23); that the world might believe (17:21, 23); and that they might be with Him at last and behold His glory (17:24).

Our Lord’s parting command was to tarry in the city of Jerusalem (Luke 24:49) until baptized with the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:5) — a baptism which follows the water baptism that seals (2 Cor.1:22!) repentance (Matt.4:17; 3:11-12; Luke 3:16-17; John 1:33; Ac.2:38-40; 11:15-16.) and which empowers a consistent life and wit­ness (Ac.1:8).

The Book of Acts records the fulfillment of the promise and prayer of Jesus concerning the Holy Spirit. While the Jerusalem Pentecost of Acts 2 had an unrepeatable (As in it is still going on!); a historical side to it as the beginning of the long-awaited “age of the Spirit,” its deeper personal meaning is attested by the Sa­maritan Pentecost of Acts 8, the Caesarean or Gentile Pen­tecost of Acts 10, and the Ephesian Pentecost of Acts 19 (Even further still in 1900’s at Stone’s Folly in Topeka Kansas, Jan.1, 1901, which later spread to Los Angeles to an old butcher shop turned church on Azusa St. The latter-day pouring out that is still spreading around the world!).

Few are disposed to dispute the spiritual power that comes with the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Its cleansing aspect has not seemed as apparent, despite the fact that one of the meanings of the Greek term for baptism is itself “cleansing.” (See Jn.15:3 His word sanctifies us by His cleansing us, as long as we abide in His word to us: Also Jn.17:17-ffs!)

The matter is settled beyond reasonable doubt, how­ever, in Acts 15:8-9 (Ac.11:15-18). This is Peter’s testimony as to what happened to Cornelius and the people of his household: “And God, which knoweth the hearts, bare them witness, giving them the Holy Ghost, even as he did unto us; and put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith.” (Through the hearing of the words of God given to them by Jesus’ Anointed and Ordained ones, who have been filled with His own Spirit in them, Jn.14:18; that they maybe one as we are one, Jn.17:21!)

Although there had been speaking in other languages in Caesarea as in Jerusalem (Ac.10:46), Peter did not mention this at all. When he was concerned to show the identity of the Gentile Pentecost with what happened in Jerusalem, the only “sign” he appealed to was the fact that God purified by faith the hearts of those upon whom the Holy Spirit came: with the same sign that they all would know as at the beginning: 15And as I began to speak, the Holy Ghost fell on them, as on us at the beginning. 16Then remembered I the word of the Lord, how that he said, John indeed baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost. 17Forasmuch then as God gave them the like gift as he did unto us, who believed on the Lord Jesus Christ; what was I, that I could withstand God? What did happen at the beginning on the Day of Pentecost? Look to Ac.2:1And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. 3And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. 4And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. This is what was prophesied to happen at the Baptism of fire; 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: And still further prophesied again at eh beginning of Acts, Ac.1:1The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach, 2Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen: 3To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God: 4And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me.

 5For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence. This is the fulfillment of Jn.3:3-8 so that the Spirit can then blow them where He listeth them to go! How are they to be blown without His Spirit in them leading them into all Truths, which is the Spirit of Grace and Truth, Jn.1:17; which is to have a testimony of Jesus Christ in them, Rev.19:10! This was shown to have happened to Paul’s baptizing John the Baptist’s disciples over again in the only name by which salvation is obtained in (Ac.19:1-7 and they all spoke in tongues as the Spirit gave them the utterance and did prophesied; verse 6 by the power of Jesus’ name; Jn.14:14!), which is Jesus Christ’s name, Ac.4:12; Col.3:17; No other way will bring salvation, because all scripture is for that purpose to bring salvation and reconciliation to God’s Children, 2 Cor.5:19-21 which is only done in Jesus’ name, Jn.5:39Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. Our only salvation comes when we abide in His every word, not man’s thinking of what he thinks is ok; but what did the Lord and His Anointed and Ordained Apostles say to do? This is what the First Church of Jesus Christ did to receive salvation as shown here in scripture;

The One and Only True Plan of Salvation!

 Ac.2:37Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? 38Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 39For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the LORD our God shall call! 40And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation. 41Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls. 42And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

IV

The Epistles of the New Testament, Pauline and Gen­eral, give full expression to the truth of Christian holiness (Being set apart a peculiar people, who are Holy as their Lord is Holy and set apart from the world!). It must be remembered that the letters of the New Testa­ment are all addressed to Christians. They were written from within the context of faith, and directed to those who had been converted and it had been confirmed in them to have had the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on them by confirmation as 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, 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. When God puts His Spirit in you it comes with gifts following; He always equips those who He confirms to be His, with His Supernatural Power in His Children who will now be called by His name because they now have Him living on the inside of them so that they too can lead an overcoming life style, that is required of His Children, seen in Rev.2: and chapter 3!

The Overcomers

 For this reason, there is no effort on the part of the writers to identify sanctification as a work of grace following conversion or the new birth. The readers are assumed al­ready to have passed from death to life. Whatever is urged upon them must, therefore, be understood as part of what follows the initial experience of salvation (They have a hope of Salvation; it is all contingent on if they adhere to the word of God which cleanses them, Jn.15:3! Just as Paul taught we have a hope of salvation and we run our race to win the prize, or we too will fall back into perdition seen in Heb.12:1-29 and 2 Pt.2:1But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. 2And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. 3And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

4For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; 5And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; 6And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly; 7And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked: 8(For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)

9The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished: 10But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, self-willed, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities. 11Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord. 12But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption; 13And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you;

 14Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children: 15Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; 16But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man’s voice forbad the madness of the prophet. 17These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever. 18For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error. 19While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage. 20For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.

21For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them! 22But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire!).

God’s redemptive work in its totality is the theme of the New Testament let­ters. It is expressed in many ways:

a. Christians must experience in reality what is implied in baptism and provided by the Cross (Rom. 6:1-*4*-7:6).

b. Both the law and human willpower are futile in dealing with inner sin (Rom. 7:7-25).

c. Only the Spirit of life can make the believer free from the fleshly or carnal mind (Rom. 8:1-*9*-13).

d. The very mercies of God call for His people to make of themselves living sacrifices (Rom. 12:1-2).

e. Spiritual infancy and carnal living rend the body of Christ (1 Cor. 3:1-4).

f. More excellent than spiritual gifts is the way of divine love (1 Cor. 12:31-13:1-13).

g. The promises of God call us to cleansing from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God (2 Cor.7:1; See also 1 Cor.11:1-2-ffs!).

h. The struggle between “flesh” and “Spirit” goes on until the “flesh” is crucified with its affections and lusts (Gal. 5:17-24; Gal.6:7Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap! Eph.5:27That 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! Jn.8:11 and Jn.5:14!).

i. Those chosen to be holy and without blame before God in love must put off “the old man … corrupt according to the deceitful lusts,” and put on “the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness” (Eph. 1:4; 4:22-24).

j. Christ loved the Church and gave himself to “sanc­tify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word; by which the Holy Spirit purchased us with His own blood the very blood of God, Jn.4:24 God is that Spirit and that is the Truth we must worship Him in! 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!” that it “should be holy and without blemish” (Eph. 5:25-27).

k. There is no “perfection of glory” in this life (Mt.5:48 there had better be or you only deceive yourself! When God lives in you all things then become possible who have been sanctified in His Blood, because His blood and His word living in you purifies you and cleanses you by His word, Jn.15:3;  Mt.19:26!) (Phil. 3:12-14), but there is a “perfection of grace” (3:15Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in anything ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you. 16Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing. 17Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample. That we walk as Jesus Christ walked on this earth, 1 Jn.2:1-6 and then the warnings come; for all the deceivers after 2 Jn.1-6 then start the warnings seen in verses 7-11!).

l. Putting off the old man and putting on the new man must lead to life on a new and higher ethical plane (Col. 3:1-13; 1 Thes.4:1Furthermore then we beseech you, brethren, and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as ye have received of us how ye ought to walk and to please God, so ye would abound more and more. 2For ye know what commandments we gave you by the Lord Jesus. 3For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication: 4That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour; 5Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God: 6That no man go beyond and defraud his brother in any matter: because that the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also have forewarned you and testified. 7For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness! Phil.4:  4Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice. 5Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand! 6Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. 7And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. 8Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. 9Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you!).

m. God’s will and call are to holiness, entire sanctifi­cation (I Thess. 4:3, 7-8; 5:23-24).

n. Grace teaches us to deny ungodliness and worldly lusts, and to live holy lives in this present world, looking for the coming of the God-man (Which is our God; 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! Who gave himself both to “re­deem us from all iniquity,” and to purify unto himself a people peculiarly His own, “zealous of good works” (Titus 2:11-14; See also Ac.26:19-20!).

  • The strong, practical emphasis of the letter to the Hebrews is the need for converts to “go on”:
  •  to a sanctifying union with the Captain of their sal­vation (2:10-11)
  • into the “rest of faith” (3:12-4:11)
  • to become teachers of others (5:11-14) • unto “perfection” (6:1-3)
  • to the reality of Christ’s sprinkled blood (9:13-14) • into the holiest of all (10:19-22)
  •  following “holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord” (12:14-17)
  • with Christ without the camp where He suffered to sanctify the people of God with His own blood (13:12-14). The alternative to going on is the chilling pos­sibility of going “back unto perdition” (10:39).

p. The double-minded man, unstable in all his ways, is directed to purify his heart (Jms. 1:8; 4:8).

q. God’s obedient children are to be “holy, as he . . . is holy” in every area of their lives (1 Pet. 1:14-16).

r. By the promises of God, we become partakers of His nature, and thus escape the corruption in the world through lust (2 Pet. 1:4).

s. If we walk in the light of God instead of the darkness of sin, we have fellowship with Him, and the blood of Jesus Christ cleanses from all sin. To deny the need for such cleans­ing is to deceive ourselves (1 John 1:7-8).

t. In the perfection of love, there is boldness in the Day of Judgment (I John 4:17-18).

Putting all this together, one can hardly escape the al­most boundless optimism of the New Testament writers as they reflect the possibilities of grace. They are fully aware of the tensions involved in living godly lives in this present world in bodies that still await the full redemption of the sons of God. They know that it is through tribulation we enter the Kingdom (Jn.16:33). Yet they thrill to the reality of the resurrection life even in the stresses, partialities, and incompleteness of the present age.

One of the crucial issues in discussions of the “higher life” portrayed in the New Testament is always the nature and extent of deliverance from inner sin, the old nature. “Eradication” is a term sure to be questioned. We are told that it is not a biblical term—and indeed it is not, exactly in that form—although the idea comes through rather clearly in Heb.12:14-15; Jn.8:11 to go and sin no more is a commandment from Jesus Christ and is for all of us not just the adulteress; even the cripple who Jesus made whole in Jn.5:14; it is up to that man to remain in a sin free state, or a worse thing will come upon him on the Day of Judgment!

But is it necessary to contend for a term If anyone ob­jects to “eradication” —and there are some overtones to the word that say more than we mean—then why not just settle for biblical language and talk about crucifixion, destruction, mortification, putting to death, putting off, purging, cleans­ing, purifying, or making clean Really, it all comes out at the same place. 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.

If we interpret Christian holiness biblically, we shall not concern ourselves with a single group of words—”holy,” “holiness,” “sanctify,” “sanctification.” We shall also stress the baptism with or fullness of the Holy Spirit; the risen or resurrected life with Christ; the righteousness of the law fulfilled in us; circumcision of the heart; salvation to the ut­termost—or in Luther’s sparkling phrase, “through and through”; the fullness of the blessing of the gospel of Christ; purity of heart and power for witnessing; and so on and on.

We shall turn to other interpretations of Christian holi­ness. But all of them must finally rest back upon the teachings of the Holy Bible with its clarion call “not unto uncleanness, but unto holiness” (1 Thess. 4:7).

In Closing;

Without Holiness and Righteousness no man will enter into God’s Kingdom!

 The Apostle John said only those who are the children of God will walk as Jesus walked in His life (1 Jn.2:6) which agrees with Jn.14:6Jesus saith unto him, I AM the way, (I Am) the truth, and (I AM) the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by ME! Because Jesus is the manifestation of God the Father in the flesh seen in scripture; 1 Tm.3:16And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit (1 Cor.6:11 Justification by God’s Word in Action; Results in Faith being Established in the Believer’s Pure Heart!); (Because God is the Holy Spirit, Jn.4:24! And we were purchased with His blood; Ac.20:28 just as Thomas found out in Jn.20:28, “My LORD and my GOD!!!”), seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory. Therefore when you have seen Jesus you know the Father as well, Jn.12:45; 14:7, and have seen Him; because they are one in the same; Jn.10:30I and my Father are one!

Who is our God with us; Mt.1:23 our Emmanuel! This is to know the Father in Truth and in His Spirit (Jn.4:24); which is His words to us (Jn.1:1-18); (Jn.15:3 which cleanses us only if we use them in our lives!); which is eternal life for us (Jn.6:63 and 68Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.), only when we abide in Him only (This is being separated from the world with the living words of God in our PURE HEARTS (2 Tm.2:19-22) and minds; then and only then can we abide in Him and His words abide in us (2 cor.6:14-18); and we are one with Him, because His words sanctifies us and His Spirit which is His words and will for us is our justifier and when we are in His will seen in Mt.12:46-50 we are His children and will be His Sons as seen in Jn.8:47 who hear only God’s word; which the world cannot receive because they have not been regenerated in the water in Jesus’ name; by the only name by which all salvation can come, seen in Ac.4:12; because all power and the blood of the sacrifice is attached to the name of Jesus Christ, Mt.28:18 and Jn.14:14; which is the blood of God who is the Holy Spirit which sanctifies us with His Repentances for us, Ac.11:15-18 with Himself in us bring us back into relationship that Adam had with God in the beginning; this is the only Holiness that there will ever be, that brings justification, in the name of God, (Jn.5:43) which is Jesus’ own name which means Salvation; which agrees with the Old Testament as well, as we look to Is.49:26And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I the LORD am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob (Is.9:6!)!

Jn.14:7If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him!

Hence forth we will not walk as the world does; we will walk as the words of our Lord God dictate for us (1 Jn.2:6) in our lives we now live not for ourselves but for Him! We died to the flesh of our own sinful nature and to self in the water of baptism, being buried in Christ Jesus, the New Testament covenant seen in Ro.6:4 (and Col.2:12-14 ffs.) so that we too like Christ was raised from the dead we too who were by all rights dead in our own sins; now being made alive with a clean conscience seen in 3 Pt.3:21The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ: But only the righteous of the Lord God will barely escape the wrath to come seen again in Peter’s writings; 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? 18And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear (We all know the answer to that question don’t we?)? 19Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing (In obedience to His every word, for obedience is worth more than all the sacrifices in the whole world from the beginning of time, 1 Sam.15:22And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices (Continual Repentances!), as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams! Also seen in Mk.12:33And 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: 34And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. Because Jesus is the gate to the Kingdom of God seen in Jn.10:1-ffs and in these as well Mt.4:17 and Mt.12:28 and lastly in Lk.11:20 because Jesus is the finger of God; 20But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you!), as unto a faithful Creator!

The world was made by Jesus seen in Jn.1:1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God! 2The same was in the beginning with God. 3All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made. 4In him was life; and the life was the light of men (Jn.8:12 see Gen.1:3 and then to Jn.12:35-50 Jesus is the LIGHT of the Universe, which is the Spirit of LIFE to all mankind and without His LIGHT we have no spirit in us or life! That which is in darkness has no life in it: Darkness if void of life and of order and is only continually evil!). 5And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. Jesus is the light of the world seen in Jn.8:12 and also in Gen.1:3! Which is the Word of God made flesh; Jn1:14And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,): (On the Glory of God see Is.42:8 and 48:11 and 2 Cor.4:6 and 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!) full of grace and truth Jn.1:17For the law was given by Moses, but grace (Word of God (Ac.20:24 is the gospel which is preached to us; and is seen also in verse 32 of the same chapter!) is to know His will for us and then we will have His favour when we are found in compliance to His word which is His will for us; this is the only way we can be found in His Truths; only if we are living in his word for us!) and truth (Only God’s word is Truth because God cannot lie, Tit.1:2In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began; and Heb.6:18That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: 19Which hope we have as an anchor of the (Our own souls!) soul:), came by Jesus Christ (Ecc.12:7Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.). Whether we want to or not we will all stand before His judgment seat come the day of the Lord, Phil.2:10! Which is this seen in Ro.2:1Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things. 2But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth against them which commit such things. 3And thinkest thou this, O man, that judgest them which do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God? 4Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance? 5But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God; 6Who will render to every man according to his deeds: 7To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life: 8But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, 9Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile; 10But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile: 11For there is no respect of persons with God.

If people would judge themselves according to the word of God they would convict themselves and turn to the only word that is of Truth, which is out of the mouth of God seen in Mt.4:4But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God! And again of Lk.4:4And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God. So shall His children who will be Holy because of the separation from the words of this world to the very word of God! 1 Cor.11:31For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. 32But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world. If we are to judge ourselves against His word to see if we eat or drink of the covenant supper seen in these verses to unrighteousness of walking in the ways of the world which lies in wickedness seen in 1 Jn.5:19 then we have to be apart from this world because we cannot drink of the cup of this world and the cup of God are we greater than He? 1 Cor.10:21Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils. 22Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? are we stronger than he? If you try this you are a hypocrite in the eyes of God and are eating and drinking of the last supper covenant in unrighteousness and that is why a lot of you are sick; 1 Cor.11:28But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. 29For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. 30For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. It takes all scripture living inside you before you call yourself a child of God; 2 Tm.3:16All 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.

These were commandments handed down to Timothy before and as the New testament was being written here before Timothy’s eyes seen in these verses as Paul taught Timothy how to conduct the second generation church of God in Jesus Christ! Paul started back in verse 14;  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. That the Old Testament was to be adhered to just as the words Paul was teaching Timothy here! Jesus said if we will obey His words then we will obey His Apostles words given to us by His own Holy Spirit in them seen in Jn.14:18 and Jn.15:20!

Holiness and Righteousness is only seen in those who walk as Jesus did, Jn.14:6 and 1 Jn.2:6He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked. If we don’t, we will be found to be a liar and a hypocrite as shown in these very verses in 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. 7Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning. 8Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth. 9He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now. 10He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him. If we allow our children to go off to war or even take another job in the military we are seen and have been found to be abiding in the worlds systems; and not our God’s, who said repay no evil with an evil (Mt.5:38-47 that is how we can be perfect, because God is LOVE!); you are thus found to be a liar and are unworthy of the Lord’s supper by proxy of allowing someone else to stumble off the narrow path (Jms.5:19-20) that leads to Heaven and few there will be that find it; because they are disobedient to God’s words!

Ro.3:4God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged. If one’s life doesn’t line up with the word of God who is at fault here? It is man’s fault because we are without excuses in the scriptures; we have all been given ample warning; such as this one; Phil.2:12Wherefore, 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. Do you see anyone today in the fear of God, let alone trembling? At least the demons do that; Jms.2:19Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. If they know there is but one God why do they preach and teach of three persons being God; the demons know who to fear, and they tremble at the name of Jesus because every knee will bow to Him alone! When we see Jesus we see God, Jn.12:45! Unless we know that we cannot be in Holiness living in a false relationship that is of man’s philosophies that are warned about here; Col.2:1For I would that ye knew what great conflict I have for you, and for them at Laodicea, and for as many as have not seen my face in the flesh; 2That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ; 3In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. 4And this I say, lest any man should beguile you with enticing words. 5For though I be absent in the flesh, yet am I with you in the spirit, joying and beholding your order, and the stedfastness of your faith in Christ. 6As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: 7Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. 8Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. 9For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. 10And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: 11In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:

 12Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead!

If we weren’t baptized correctly we have not the blood of the sacrifice on our souls because we used man’s rituals instead of the Apostles Ordained Sacred Ordinances, which bind in Heaven and on Earth and loosen in Heaven and on Earth because only they had the keys of Heaven given to them by Jesus Himself! If any man doesn’t do what they said that man will be accursed as shown to us in Deu.4:2 and 12:32 as well as Gal.1:8-9 and again in Rev.22:18-19! That is the reason the First Century Church Baptized all their members in Jesus’ name only because there is none other name given by which we all MUST be saved, Ac.4:12 and Lk.24:47And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem! This is exactly what Peter did on the Day of Pentecost; seen in Ac.2:38Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 39For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the LORD our God shall call. 40And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation.

If we didn’t do the same as these then we do not belong to the only church going to heaven; the church of Pentecost, who have received the baptism of the Holy Spirit with speaking in tongues and with signs following so that we too can walk as Jesus walked doing greater things than He did seen in scripture, Jn.14:12Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. 13And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. 15If ye love me, keep my commandments.

How can we in all righteousness say we are a child of God and be seen in His righteousness when we have not obeyed His every word, He told us to do (Lk.6:46)? We will be found to be a liar and only deceiving our own selves worshipping a god of our own vain imaginations! That is not worshipping in Spirit and in His Truths, Jn.4:24 without the Spirit of God being in you seen in Jn.3:3Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. 4Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? 5Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God! 6That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit (Jn.1:12-13). 7Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. 8The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

How are you going to be blown wherever the Spirit listeth us when we do not have His Spirit in us with His power to lead an overcoming life style without His Repentance that we need? Ac.11:15And as I began to speak, the Holy Ghost fell on them, as on us at the beginning (Ac.2:1-4). 16Then remembered I the word of the Lord, how that he said, John indeed baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost. 17Forasmuch then as God gave them the like gift as he did unto us, who believed on the Lord Jesus Christ; what was I, that I could withstand God (What did they do that was like them? The spoke in tongues as the Spirit gave them the utterances seen in Ac.10:44-48!)? 18When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life! How did this happen? The scriptures show us how this happened in Cornelius’ house in 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.

If you have not had this experience you are not in the First Church of Jesus Christ; just that simple and you will not enter into His Kingdom! 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 (Jn.10:1-ffs there is only one shepherd meaning only one gate we must enter and exit out of!). Only those who follow Jesus and His teachings (Have fellowship with Him, He will not enter into an unclean vessel!) and those of His Ordained Apostles will be able to enter into the straight gate which is Jesus Christ seen in Jn.10:1-ffs! We will know all of these who are of Jesus Christ because we will see their fruits or works!

Works don’t save anyone but you cannot have good works unless they are the works of the Holy Spirit leading you 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, he shall testify of me: 27And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning. This is how we will know we have been with Jesus from the beginning because Jesus knows who will be His from the beginning and only those who come down from heaven can then ascend up to heaven as seen in 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. Because we have been with Him from the beginning, even Enoch as well as Elijah which came again as John the Baptist: Mt.17:12But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them. 13Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist: Seen originally in 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. Showing God’s Prophecy “His Mold to History” being fulfilled in John the Baptist the last Old Testament Prophet of God: The last one seen for over 430 years since we had one of God’s prophets showing us in the New Testament; who God was in our Generation in the age of Grace; which is now about to fade away in the Day of the Lord’s redemption or rejection!

It is up to us which it will be, the door to salvation is about to shut forevermore! All those who are not of Holiness and Righteousness that is of our Great God in us as shown here in scripture, 2 Cor.5:17Therefore 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!

We cannot be the righteousness of God in Jesus unless we do all that He has commanded us to do that is in His every word to us (Lk.6:46And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?); such as these; 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!

This will never happen unless we become His chosen vessels with a pure heart; then and only then will he come and abide in us when we have enough faith to abide in Him and His every word to us; this is knowing the cost of discipleship seen here in 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. Just as seen here in the same chapter Jn.8:51Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death!

Have we kept His saying? Or have we continued along in our sin and listened to men who have never had the true Holy Ghost experience with speaking in tongues given to us for exactly this reason so that we would know the truth when we heard it being spoken in a heavenly language from above! Mal.3:6 God changes not and all gifts which come down from the Father above are without recompence seen in Jms.1:16Do not err, my beloved brethren. 17Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights (Jn.12:35-50), with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning (Jn.8:12). How long will mankind remain in darkness; Jn.1:1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2The same was in the beginning with God. 3All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made. 4In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. Seen here also Jn.14:16And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever; 17Even the Spirit of truth (Jn.1:17); whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, 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! It is Jesus’ own Spirit living inside of you because you actually know Him for who He is, Mt.11:27All 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! Jesus is who you need to pray to in order to receive His Spirit in you; you must ask for it: (Lk.11:14)!

 

The only Holiness and Righteousness we can ever claim as our own comes directly from God living in you which is His word and only then can we be taught of God seen in Jer.31:31Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: 32Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD: 33But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. 34And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more. Because His Spirit will be living in you leading you into all His Truths!

There is a difference that can be seen, in the Children of God!

 Holiness and Righteousness of God in His Children will not look like the children of the world around them! There is a distinct difference with them who want to please God with their lives and everything about their lives, which belong to Him only, who will bless His own with eternal life with Him in the end! These are the few Mt.7:14Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it! Mt.20:16So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen! Mt.22:14For many are called, but few are chosen! (Three times in the same book, three is the number of completion, we have been warned completely!) The words of men will pass away but the words of God are eternal; Mt.24:35Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. His every word will accomplish that which it was intended to accomplish seen in Is.55:11So 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.

When we follow His every word to us that are either a life in Heaven clause to us; or we will find ourselves listening to men and our own words that will lead us directly to Hell! Because our natural ways are not His was; 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.

Only when we seek His ways can our ways line up with His and we will then be found in His will where only the Children of God will be found! All others will look and be as the world around them; but the children of God’s women will look like they did in the First Church of Jesus Christ who were warned by the Apostles not to cut their hair because it is their Glory from God for them; it is their covering (It doesn’t mean cut it and them wear something over it! The woman’s hair is her actual covering!); 1 Cor.1Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ (Commandment time here people!). 2Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you (Jn.15:20!)! 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 (Dan.12:2 on a SHAME!) or shaven, let her be covered (This means let her hair grow naturally and take care of it, because you are the Temple of the Lord God! 1 Cor.6:19-20!). 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 (And should be submissive to God as well as her husband!). 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. (God changes not! His word and His idea of women who are to be humble unto their own husbands will also are humble unto the word of God and the word of His Apostles! Jn.15:20!)

16But if any man seem to be contentious (1 Sam.15:22-23, shows you what contentious people look like, who will not be found in heaven because they disobeyed God’s word to them! They too will have no such custom! Neither will their church of God!), we have no such custom, neither the churches of God. These people who are of the other church will be contentious and have no such customs and will in fact teach and preach another gospel that Paul warned us about, seen in Gal.1:8-9, who are then being cursed, who teach and preach not the whole Truth seen in Deu.4:2 and 12:32 and Mt.4:4 and Gal.1:8-9 and finally by the Apostle John in Rev.22:18-19 told to write these word s by Jesus Himself to John!

 

God’s Children are not like the world’s children!

 

They will be modest and chase women of Godliness which is in fact Holiness and Righteousness which makes up Godliness: (Lev.22:31Therefore shall ye keep my commandments, and do them: I am the LORD. 32Neither shall ye profane my holy name; but I will be hallowed among the children of Israel: I am the LORD which hallow you! We were grafted into that same Vine!): Which must be observed not only by women but men too; (Deu.22:5The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination (detestable, means you will have no such laws or rules governing you; you are un-testable, unruly, contentious, in a state of rebellion, which is as bad as witchcraft and idolatry, 1 Sam.15:22-23! Because you did not hollow the word of God given to you! Therefore you cannot be Holy or Hollowed by God!), unto the LORD thy God!)! Now if women’s hair is a Godliness issue then also the ordinances which governs men’s apparel which women are never to wear must be observed in men as well as the women or it is confusion which is an abomination to God which changes not, Mal.3:6 and Heb.13:8! His ordinances carried over from the Old Testament clear into the New Testament as well with the hair and the clothing issues; these are what we call holiness issues! Without Holiness no man will enter and stay in God’s presence without His robes of Holiness seen in the story of the wedding feast; one man did not put on his robes that were given to him to wear and we see what happened to him; he was bound hand and foot and cast out; Mt.22:12And 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!

Only the prayer of the righteous will be heard and answered in an appropriate way; Prov.15:8The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD: but the prayer of the upright is his delight. As well as Prov.28:9He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination. When we understand that every word in this Holy Bible is the word of God and is our commandment and our law, then we to must observe His every word to us; it is our righteousness in Him! 2 Tm.3:16All 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. We cannot have good works and be found perfect unless we abide in Him and His word abides in us; only then can we be found to walk before Him and be perfect as His is perfect; seen in His word to us, Mt.5:48 as well as Gen.17:1 because God changes not! It will never matter what any man says is ok or right in the eyes of God; unless it lines up perfectly with what our great God told us to do in His word to us, called this Holy Bible; that is the reason it is called Holy: Because it is His word to us, Ro.3:4God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged! Our lives better line up with His word to us; and our understanding of His word better be right when we are judged by Him who knows what He was telling us: It is up to us to rightly divide the word f God, 2 Tm.2:15 and we had better work out our own Salvation that is given to us by His word, Phil.2:12 because we will stand before our Great God; His people will be judged first at the catching away, 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? 18And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? 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. The only way to be a righteous person is to be in covenant relationship with Jesus and in compliance to His every word to us: 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: 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. This world will end this way seen in Mt.24:35Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. Mt.4:4But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God! And neither will we; Jesus is the bred of life and if we eat not of His flesh which is the word of God seen in Jn.1:1-14: we will not live with Him unless we abide in Him and His word abides in us, which is our Holiness and our Righteousness which will allow us to be in His presence without perishing because we must be a minister that is a flame of fire, Ps.104:4 and Heb.1:7 because our God is a consuming fire, Heb.12:29; so you had better have gotten the baptism that comes with fire or you too will lukewarm and spewed out of His mouth!

We cannot be Holy or Righteous unless we are abiding in His word to us! Just as a woman will humble herself to her husband and the word of God in her life and the Holy Spirit will speak to her consciousness and will reveal to her the ways of the Lord and what it means to be a chase bride of Jesus Christ, with shamefacedness and a purity of being one in the word of God according to His heart and hers being one in the same in the fulness of Godliness! With this said it also stands the same with all men of God who are to be called the Sons of God who abide in Him (Jn.8:47 for only a true Son of God will hear His words!) and He in them, because they are one in the same in Word and in Deed we will be seen doing everything in Jesus’ own name, (Col.3:17)! His word to us is our life (Jn.6:63 & 68 if you don’t know these verses by heart you should ; if not go look them up, or they are just numbers to you! These numbers and books are your health to you and your eternal life with God or you will perish and forever be in Hell and fuel for the fire, and food for the worm that dieth not!) to us because it is the eternal word of God and He changes not! From the Old Testament to the New we have one God and one rule of law which is all of His words to us, 2 Tm.3:16-17, say ALL SCRIPTURE is for us; to do what for us? 2 Tm.3:16All 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. Without it living in us we cannot meet this requirement seen here in Mt.5:48Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. The same as it was in the Old Testament as well; Gen.17:1And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect! Before Abraham was Noah; Gen.6:8But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. 9These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God. All Because Noah walked with God! The secret to being perfect; we must walk with God in our hearts and He must always be before our faces and always on our minds: we will not do one thing unless we ask ourselves; is this what God would have me do; if I do this in my life will I still be in the will of God? These questions and those just like them should always be thought of before we do anything in this lifetime of ours! That is the reason why so many of us say I will have to pray on it before I tell you what I’m going to do!

Women’s Hair is a Holiness Issue

 Woman’s hair is her grown of glory from God to her (1 Cor.11:1-15 ffs!); why would she ever want to cut her glory! What if she got to heaven and they wouldn’t let her in because she didn’t have her glory with her on her head? In the same regards a man’s beard it his manliness because he is made in the image of his God; his distinction between a woman and a man is his beard; which can be seen, right off from afar! When one sees a man who has a beard from a distance they know it is a man they are looking at, who is made in the image of God! There was even a war started over cutting off the beards of the servants of King David’s Court: 1 Chor.19:1Now it came to pass after this, that Nahash the king of the children of Ammon died, and his son reigned in his stead.

2And David said, I will shew kindness unto Hanun the son of Nahash, because his father shewed kindness to me. And David sent messengers to comfort him concerning his father. So the servants of David came into the land of the children of Ammon to Hanun, to comfort him. 3But the princes of the children of Ammon said to Hanun, Thinkest thou that David doth honour thy father, that he hath sent comforters unto thee? are not his servants come unto thee for to search, and to overthrow, and to spy out the land? 4Wherefore Hanun took David’s servants, and shaved them, and cut off their garments in the midst hard by their buttocks, and sent them away. 5Then there went certain, and told David how the men were served. And he sent to meet them: for the men were greatly ashamed. And the king said, Tarry at Jericho until your beards be grown, and then return!

6And when the children of Ammon saw that they had made themselves odious to David, Hanun and the children of Ammon sent a thousand talents of silver to hire them chariots and horsemen out of Mesopotamia, and out of Syriamaachah, and out of Zobah. 7So they hired thirty and two thousand chariots, and the king of Maachah and his people; who came and pitched before Medeba. And the children of Ammon gathered themselves together from their cities, and came to battle. 8And when David heard of it, he sent Joab, and all the host of the mighty men. 9And the children of Ammon came out, and put the battle in array before the gate of the city: and the kings that were come were by themselves in the field. 10Now when Joab saw that the battle was set against him before and behind, he chose out of all the choice of Israel, and put them in array against the Syrians. 11And the rest of the people he delivered unto the hand of Abishai his brother, and they set themselves in array against the children of Ammon.

12And he said, If the Syrians be too strong for me, then thou shalt help me: but if the children of Ammon be too strong for thee, then I will help thee. 13Be of good courage, and let us behave ourselves valiantly for our people, and for the cities of our God: and let the LORD do that which is good in his sight! (The Lord honored this because David was a Hollowed man in the eyes of God who Hollowed him because David was perfect in the eyes of His LORD GOD 2 Sam.22:33!)

14So Joab and the people that were with him drew nigh before the Syrians unto the battle; and they fled before him. 15And when the children of Ammon saw that the Syrians were fled, they likewise fled before Abishai his brother, and entered into the city. Then Joab came to Jerusalem. 16And when the Syrians saw that they were put to the worse before Israel, they sent messengers, and drew forth the Syrians that were beyond the river: and Shophach the captain of the host of Hadarezer went before them. 17And it was told David; and he gathered all Israel, and passed over Jordan, and came upon them, and set the battle in array against them. So when David had put the battle in array against the Syrians, they fought with him. 18But the Syrians fled before Israel; and David slew of the Syrians seven thousand men which fought in chariots, and forty thousand footmen, and killed Shophach the captain of the host (Which God used to increase David’s land’s and authority al because some kid cut off David’s messengers beard off and caused then to be shamed so without a doubt if a man has not a beard he is a shame in the eyes of his LORD GOG who gave him the ability to grow a beard for a reason, because it is his glory just as a woman’s hair is her glory to her a man’s beard is his glory given to him by his God!)!

19And when the servants of Hadarezer saw that they were put to the worse before Israel, they made peace with David, and became his servants: neither would the Syrians help the children of Ammon anymore.

What matters is; How Does God See It?

Amos3:3Can two walk together, except they be agreed?

 All of this could have been avoided if the young king would have honored King David’s men who sent good tiding to them in the first place! The young king sought the council of men who needed to be counseled instead of being councilors! Just as this world’s vain men who teach the word of God is all allegorical; instead of literal; and that it should be fulfilled in one’s life not only spiritually but many things are to be done in word and indeed, Col.3:17 Just exactly as Jesus and the Apostles instructed us to carry their words out in our lives so that we can perfect, in His eyes who changes not and never will, Heb.13:8Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever. We cannot produce His fruits unless we abide in Him and His word to us as seen in Jn.15:1I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. 2Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. 3Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. 4Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. 5I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do  nothing! 6If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned!

 7If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. 8Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples (That is how we are to become His Disciples and we know Him and what he wants us to do; so that we know what to pray for so that we are praying in His will for us so He will answer our prayers!)9As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. 10If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love! 11These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. 12This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. 13Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. 14Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. 15Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you! (God became flesh and dwelt among us and became our brother, so that when we love our brothers in this world and even to the least of these you are doing it unto Him, this is the fulfillment of all the law that Paul was talking about for this very reason!).

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: 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. If we are friends with this world we are an enemy of God, Jms.4:4!

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! Only when we keep Jesus’ word and those of His Ordained Apostles are we then in the righteousness and holiness of God in them, who were filled with His Holy Spirit, letting them know the ways of God in them, which is how we become Hollowed in His eyes and we are then seen as PERFECT! When we start doing God’s will the world starts having its fun at our expense doesn’t it; this is the persecution Jesus was talking about because we do not walk in the ways of those in this world because this is not our home that we are looking for; we are just sojourners on our way to our Heavenly Home with our Lord God Jesus Christ!

21But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me. 22If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin. 23He that hateth me hateth my Father also (And all these words of mine are meaningless to them of the world, also, because they are of God’s words to us and only the children of God can receive His words, Jn.8:47 because we know who Jesus is: Our Emmanuel!). 24If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father! 25But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause. 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 (Jn.1:17 & Jn.14:18!): 27And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning (Ecc.12:7 and Jn.3:13!). God knows who are His (2 Tm.2:19-22) because God knows the end from the beginning (Is.46:10)!

So with all this said; we will always have the world hating us because we preach Jesus and His abiding word that we all must obey or find ourselves thrust out of the Kingdom of God in the end of day and of this age! If we do not abide in Jesus we will be cut off and throne into the burn pile which is to be the fuel for the eternal fire (That I spoke of earlier!) to come, as seen in Eze.21:31And I will pour out mine indignation upon thee, I will blow against thee in the fire of my wrath, and deliver thee into the hand of brutish men, and skilful to destroy. (That is why Satan and all the rest of the fallen angels are allowed to exist to this day; they will be you new task masters because you would not listen to the only word that would keep you safe for all eternity: but you listened to man’s teaching and vain philosophies and not the words of God! Therefore: 32Thou shalt be for fuel to the fire; thy blood shall be in the midst of the land; thou shalt be no more remembered: for I the LORD have spoken it. As seen also at the end of the next chapter as well; Eze.22:31Therefore have I poured out mine indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath: their own way have I recompensed upon their heads, saith the Lord GOD!

He will pour out on your heads just exactly what you sought, which is your will and not His will for you and that is the unforgivable sin of presumptuous sin seen in Heb.12:1Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, 2Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds. 4Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin!

5And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: 6For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. 7If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? If anything in this article is lying heavy on your heart, then you might just be a Son of God if you repent and start following the only words which will keep you perfect in His eyes, which is His Commandment to you! If not them you are one of the next group of these who follow after the world’s teachings and are enemies of God, talked about in Jms.4:4!

 8But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons! (If you are getting along just fine in this world and you are enjoying it, then your joy will be turned into frustrating humiliation as seen in the rich man and Lazarus! Because you cared not that as you looked around you could not see the filth and ungodliness going on around you and you didn’t even bother to pick up a stranger and get then back onto the narrow path of righteousness, which is another commandment you never kept seen in Jms.5:19Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him; 20Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins! How many more commandments are you not keeping in the world of God because you too have not the Holy Spirit leading you into all of God’s truths, Ro.8:9But 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! Otherwise you would know all of these things wouldn’t you?   

 9Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of Spirits (Ecc.12:7), and live? 10For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness! 11Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous (Because in actuality you are really just a Bastard, not worthy of His chastisement: Because your heart is not right and has not been purified by His word in you!): (But to those who are His children being chastised in this world of ours, brings us to Him so that we can find out what it is that is displeasing to Him and results in this:),  nevertheless afterward it (chastisement), yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby. 12Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees; 13And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed, (With a new heart of love for God that cannot do enough for Him that gave His all for us; and that is all He is looking for in us; that we give Him our all, as seen in 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.).

 14Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord: 

 15Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God (So much for once saved always saved; if anyone does not listen to God and His word, well, they have fallen from His Grace, which means His love for you, which is His word given to you so you will know how to please Him, which is His gospel given to us for this reason so we can be saved by His words to us, which is His will for us as well, Mt.12:46-50!); lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled, (If we keep not His word then we are shown to have bitterness to his word and are defiled!); 16Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright (Which sought the pleasures of this world for its temporary satisfactions as Esau did and gave up his eternal birthrights for the foods of this world, which is passing away in fire, to which you too will be bound to it because you cared more for the temporary joys of this world; than for God’s righteousness that is our eternal joy with Him!). 17For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears! Just as the five unworthy virgins who kept not their jars full of additional oil so that when they needed it they would not be found lacking what was necessary for their entrance into the wedding feast, with the other five who were prepared to go all the way with their master, when He calls! Who is your master today?  

 18For ye are not come unto the mount that might be touched, and that burned with fire, nor unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest, 19And the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words; which voice they that heard intreated that the word should not be spoken to them any more: 20(For they could not endure that which was commanded, And if so much as a beast touch the mountain, it shall be stoned, or thrust through with a dart: 21And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, I exceedingly fear and quake: (where is man’s fear today?)):

22But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, 23To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, 24And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel. 25See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven!

26Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. 27And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. (If we are not in His word we too will be shaken out and will not remain with Jesus unto the end! His word is how we get wielded and what unites us with His Heavenly Kingdom; for all Eternity!)

28Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace (Ac.20:24 and 32: On what Grace is: We had better know what God calls Grace, not man’s definitions of it!), whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: 29For our God is a consuming fire!

Where is man’s fear of God today?

 Just as Jesus said Himself in Mt.12:30He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad: (Are you gathering for the Lord and are you working in His fields of harvest seen in these verses, 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! It’s all about obedience to His every word, which is our commandments!)

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 (Who wrote the words of God beings He is God; now in the flesh of Jesus Christ, 1 Tm.3:16; Jn.1:14!) 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. Only those who are of God and His word are going to be one of those who are in His will seen here 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!

Obedience to God’s Word to us; IS OUR SALVATION

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.

Jn.14:6Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me!

 

 This is the reason we are being persecuted today as well because we teach Jesus and His word and the world will not receive His word; if we preached the words of the world the world would love us because we teach the ways of the world because they are blinded still and do not know that the whole world lies in wickedness, 1 Jn.5:19 and the only ones who will be saved are these; 1 Jn.5:18We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not. Just as Jesus told them in His day as well, Jn.8:11She said, No man, Lord: And Jesus said unto her: Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more. Another one seen in scripture because God changes not, seen here as well; Jn.5:14Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee!

Just as here in the word of God to His Disciples about the seed sown: Lk.8:4And when much people were gathered together, and were come to him out of every city, he spake by a parable: 5A sower went out to sow his seed: and as he sowed, some fell by the way side; and it was trodden down, and the fowls of the air devoured it. 6And some fell upon a rock; and as soon as it was sprung up, it withered away, because it lacked moisture. 7And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprang up with it, and choked it. 8And other fell on good ground, and sprang up, and bare fruit an hundredfold. And when he had said these things, he cried, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear. 9And his disciples asked him, saying, What might this parable be? 10And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand. 11Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. 12Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved. 13They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away. 14And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection15But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience (Trials and Testing God will prove His Children to see if they are truly worthy of His Kingdom!)!

There were four seeds sown and only one came up and fulfilled its own potential because it keep itself in the word of God and grew in knowledge of Jesus; 2 Pt.3:10But 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 (This word used here doesn’t mean to just talk a good show but to actually live a righteous life style, being set apart from this wicked world, for God’s use only, that is what a Holy Conversation means here: 2 Tm.3:5!) and godliness (Perfected!),

 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?

13Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. (Only Righteousness and Holiness will enter into His presence and stay there; all other will be led away screaming “MY God my God why have you forsaken me?”(Mt.7:15-23)

 14Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless. (Eph.5:27):

15And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;

 16As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction! (2 Tm.2:15)

 17Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.

18BUT GROW IN GRACE, AND IN THE KNOWLEDGE OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST. TO HIM BE GLORY BOTH NOW AND FOR EVER. AMEN.

  True men of God will not shave their beards off Lev.19:27Ye shall not round the corners of your heads, neither shalt thou mar the corners of thy beard. Lev.21:5They shall not make baldness upon their head, neither shall they shave off the corner of their beard, nor make any cuttings in their flesh. 6They shall be holy unto their God, and not profane the name of their God: for the offerings of the LORD made by fire, and the bread of their God, they do offer: therefore they shall be holy. Our Prayers are seen to God as our sacrifices as well as our life we live for Him or for the world around us, one is a righteous prayer and sacrifice and the other is an abomination to Him! One or the other, there is no grey area with God!

You see every man is the priest of his own house and we are now to be the temples of our God to dwell in and we are to offer a Holy and a Righteous sacrifice; which is ourselves to Him in word and indeed, 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.

How can we be a worthy Temple of God and live as the world who knows not our God? 1Cor.10:21Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils. Jms.4:4Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God!

Just as the Apostle John had said in 1 Jn.5:19And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness!

All because they do not know the One True God! 1 Jn.5:20And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ: This is the true God, and eternal life! And anyone who knows not this simple truth has not the revelation that cometh from Jesus Christ only Mt.11:27All 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!

Therefore do not make up an imaginary god which is taught by men of the world; which is nothing but idolatry which is warned about in the last verse 21Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen!

That is what so many do that worship a god their way instead of His way because they do not want to adhere to His teachings so they make up a make-believe god they can serve; this is the same as Idolatry! These are those who seek after preachers who will tickle their ears. 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. 3For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; 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. 5But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, and make full proof of thy ministry! Each one of us has a Ministry are we to making full proof of it?

Have we done the same as instructed here? Have we made full use and proved ourselves rightly dividing the words of God in our lives; which are supposed to be living sacrifices unto the LORD MOST HIGH; the Almighty God, Is.9:6? The only way to appear righteous, holy and clean before our Lord God Jesus Christ is to be found in His word that cleanses us, Jn.15:3Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. There is but one way to God and that has got to be His way by His word to us! His word living in our lives and we serve Him each and every day according to His divine Truths, Jn.4:24God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth!

By a consecrated life which is sanctified by His authority of His word and His Spirit living in you; which then hollows you because it is His word and His word will accomplish what it was sent out to do, Is.55:1–ffs: See 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!

That is how we become justified and will be able to stand in His presence with a clear conscience because we obeyed His words to us! That is the only way to have His mind in us, 1 Cor.2:1And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God. 2For I determined not to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. 3And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling. 4And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power (Of living a Holy Life! Then and only then do we get His power because we know His will, because we have His mind!): 5That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God! 

6Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought:

7But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: 8Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory (See Is.42:8 and 48:11 and 2 Cor.4:6 even Jn.11:40 as well as the Ten Lepers Lk.17:11-19!):

9But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him:

(You see the Kingdom of God lives in His Children; seen in these verses here: Lk.17:1Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offences will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come! 2It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. 3Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him. 4And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him.

5And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith. 6And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamore tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you (Some man will come by and pick up that tree and carry it off for you, to wherever you send it! That is how God gets things done through people in this world, who have given themselves over for His use! Just as Mary did, she allowed the Lord to use her body for His purposes and that is what a true child of God will do to!).

 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! Is man doing that today? I Trow Not!

11And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. 12And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off: 13And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us. 14And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed. 15And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, and fell at the feet of whom?

16And fell down on his face at his (Jesus’) feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. 17And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? 18There are not found that returned to give glory to God; save this stranger! 19And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole. See Is.49:26And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I the LORD am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, THE MIGHTY ONE of Jacob!

20And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: 21Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you!

Is the Kingdom of God living in us today?

It is if His Word is Living in you, then and only then will you have His mind in you!

1 Cor.2:10But God hath revealed them (the secrets and mysteries), unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. 11For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. 12Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God!

13Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual (1 Jn.4:1)! 14But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 15But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. 16For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? but we have the mind of Christ! Because that man is truly born-again of water and of the Holy Spirit seen in Jn.3:3-8 and Ac.2:1-4; 8:16-17; 10:44-48; and 19:1-7! For Jesus gives the Spirit unto them who ask for it: Lk.11:13If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?

You cannot have the right Theologies or the correct Philosophies unless you have the correct Psychology which comes from Christ’s mind in us and Christ be formed in us; Gal.4:19; therefore have I too become your enemy?

Gal.4:16Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?

~ Even so, if I be persecuted for His sake,

I find myself in good company, in the company of the Elect! ~

By Rev. G. L. Boyett

 Live the word of God in your lives or quite calling yourself a Christian; to be a Christian one must be Christ like and walk as He walked or you are not following Him, in word and indeed! 1 Jn.2:3And 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! And few that there will be that find that narrow path to the everlasting Kingdom of God (Mt.5:17-20; 7:13-14; 20:16; 22:14; 24:35)!

Phil.2:12Wherefore, 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.

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.

Because Jesus is both LORD and the CHRIST, Ac.2:36 and who is LORD of ALL, Ac.10:36!

Col.3:11Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all. If you have been born-again of the Holy Spirit and Baptized in Jesus’ name!

I therefore only have one thing left to say to everyone including myself…

Rev.2:5Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.

Written to the first church in Revelation, to the church of Ephesus and now to the last church of this age:

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. 19As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. 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.

There is only one church out of the seven that will be spared from the great tribulations as seen here: Rev.3:6He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. 7And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David (Which is the Sure Mercies!), he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth (Who is God all by Himself!); 8I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name!

9Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

10Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth!

11Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. 12Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. 13He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Mal.3:16Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name. 17And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. 18Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not!

These will be the ones who come back with Jesus to set up His millennium Kingdom seen here: Rev.2:25But that which ye have already hold fast till I come! 26And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: 27And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father! 28And I will give him the morning star!

Rev.22:10And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand. 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. 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. 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.

From Genesis to Revelation of Jesus Christ to John:

It is all “The Hollowed Word of God!”

 Anyone who does not abide in it is not going to heaven; pretty simple theology here; even a child can get it; that is why they will be the greatest in His Kingdom; because they are the least and the most pure of heart and the most humble! If we do not become His children in our heart; we too will find that we have fallen short of His glory! All because we failed to heed His every word to us! He gave us freewill to be able to choose the right from the wrong; it is up to us to discern the spirit; does it line up with the word of God or does it line up with the spirits of this world that lies in wickedness? Those of this world who teach the Law which is the word of God is not for us today, these will be the least in His Kingdom! Mt.5:19 and we all know where the least place in the KINGDOM GOD is don’t we? It sits on the other side of that gulf no one can cross over seen in the story of the Rich man and poor old leprous Lazarus; that sat at the gate of the rich man’s house!

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.

The riches of this world are getting ready to perish with all them who lust after them. 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.

Jms.5:1Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you. 2Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth eaten. 3Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days. 4Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth. 5Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter. 6Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you. 7Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain. 8Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh. 9Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door. 10Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience. 11Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy. 12But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation.

Just as  the widow who lives in luxury she has had her rewards already in this age, therefore the next will not be so welcoming to her, being she already had her wealth and shared it not with her family and even the least of these in the world; then we have not done it unto Jesus! 1 Tm.5:1Rebuke not an elder, but entreat him as a father; and the younger men as brethren; 2The elder women as mothers; the younger as sisters, with all purity. 3Honour widows that are widows indeed. 4But if any widow have children or nephews, let them learn first to shew piety at home, and to requite their parents: for that is good and acceptable before God. 5Now she that is a widow indeed, and desolate, trusteth in God, and continueth in supplications and prayers night and day. 6But she that liveth in pleasure is dead while she liveth! 7And these things give in charge, that they may be blameless ffs!

When we walk as Jesus walked we will be seen in the light of eternal light; Jesus is that only light; Jn.8:12Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. Lk.11:28But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it. So are we going to be blessed or cursed and hear these words to us; Lk.6:46And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say? Mal.1:6A son honoureth his father, and a servant his master: if then I be a father, where is mine honour? and if I be a master, where is my fear? saith the LORD of hosts unto you, O priests, that despise my name. And ye say, Wherein have we despised thy name? Mt.7:23And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Thus sayeth the Lord of the host!

Is There A New Way To Our God? The Answer is No!

Help us build a House of God where it is needed, among the poor, homeless, widowed and orphaned!

Mt.25:40And the King shall answer and say unto them: Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. See also 1 Jn.4:16Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren (Are we not all one flesh under Adam and Eve? If so then all the world is our brethren!). 17But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?18My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth! 19And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him!

And James; Jms.2:14What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? 15If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, 16And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? 17Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone!

We need Donations for the Widows, Orphaned, Naked, Sick and Poor; Church Building Fund for Accra, Ghana, Africa: (Brother Davies at “The Shekinah Glory Assembly”) and For Bibles and church furniture: Under Construction. The foundation is in, most the brick walls are up on outside, still needed 1000 more bricks, 20+ bags more of concrete and three more loads of sand (they are small truck loads) plus now we need to start funding for the roofing materials,  windows, and doors to enclose the building. 100% of your donations go to the field of operations and to the people it is intended to help! Lord’s Way Ministries is going to support this effort in any way we can; all your help will be directly routed to Accra, Ghana, Africa thank you for your support.

Is There A New Way To Our God? The Answer is No!

Jn.7:38He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. 39(But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.) They will not receive the Holy Spirit unless we teach them it is for them to day and that they cannot go to heaven without His supernatural power in them that will raise them and change them in a twinkling of an eye, or their feet are not leaving the ground!

2 Cor.1: Read the Greek original here in these verses it talks about purity

12For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity (Purity), not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace (Love) of God, we have had our conversation (anastrephó: to overturn, turn back Original Word: ἀναστρέφω
Part of Speech: Verb
Transliteration: anastrephó
Phonetic Spelling: (an-as-tref’-o)
Short Definition: I overturn, turn upside down, return, mid. and pass: I conduct myself, live
Definition: I overturn; I turn back, return; I turn hither and thither; pass: I turn myself about; I sojourn, dwell; I conduct myself, behave, live.)

in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward (Paul lives as an Example for the church followers!).

13For we write none other things unto you, that what ye read or acknowledge; and I trust ye shall acknowledge even to the end;

14As also ye have acknowledged us in part, that we are your rejoicing, even as ye also are our’s in the day of the Lord Jesus. that we will all be found to be without spot or wrinkle or blemish; being perfect in God’s will for us, Mt.12:46-50!

15And in this confidence I was minded to come unto you before, that ye might have a second benefit (God’s additional blessings and favour to be poured out to them who keep seeking His divine guidance and understanding in al His truths so that our faith will continually grow in Him in Faith which is power!);

16And to pass by you into Macedonia, and to come again out of Macedonia unto you, and of you to be brought on my way toward Judaea (That by giving to the ministry of the Apostles we will be blessed as Jesus said we would if we gave a drink of water only in the name of a disciple we would not lose our rewards Mt.10:47).

17When I therefore was thus minded, did I use lightness? or the things that I purpose, do I purpose according to the flesh, that with me there should be yea yea, and nay nay?

18But as God is true, our word toward you was not yea and nay (But was in power of the Holy Ghost; 1 Jn.5:20! In the knowledge of the one true God and with knowledge comes power in faith believing God cannot lie, and what he has for us is for us now!).

19For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us, even by me and Silvanus and Timotheus, was not yea and nay, but in him was yea (For in God all things lie in Christ Jesus bodily because Jesus is the fullness of the god-head bodily seen in Col.2:1 -ffs. which we are to teach,not with yea and nay but in detail in the power of Truth which is of the Holy Spirit’s anointing!) .

20For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us (Who as Jesus has shown us to sanctify ourselves unto God and His purposes for our lives as we live in Him and He lives in us see Jn.17:17-26! the Spirit of Jesus Christ in us so that we may behold Him and His glory, Mt.11:27All 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.!).

21Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God; 22Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts (Jn.14:18 is Jesus’ Spirit in us because Jesus is Grace and Truth which sanctifies us, Jn.,1:17! As we abide in Him only, Jn.15:1-ffs!).

23Moreover I call God for a record upon my soul, that to spare you I came not as yet unto Corinth (For Paul went and set forth the church in power of the Holy Spirit and rebuked those who were in error of their teachings and committed some over to Satan so that their souls could be saved, who was the adulterer! And those who were proud of him, Paul admonished to walk in the ways of righteousness and to cleanse that which was evil among them, to get them out of the church and to cause chastisement so that they would repent and seek forgiveness; not to allow them to continue in their sins while they were in the same congregation with them! The are to be set out of the church or they too will corrupt the church as leaven will in bread!).

24Not for that we have dominion over your faith, but are helpers of your joy: for by faith ye stand! (We either stand in our faith in every word God has given to us or we walk away with all the rest of the world who worships a god of their own likening, who have twitching ears and seek after what ever makes them feel good about themselves instead of the Truth God has for His children who are called by His name because they walk as He walked as called out for in scripture, see 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.

Walking as God walked, when He was among us, Mt.1:23 as we walk as Emmanuel has shown us to walk in Him and to be as He was in the world, for our example!

This is what the Lord is laying on my heart today, take it and do with it what you will. Only those who are of God will receive His words, Jn.8:47!

12And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.
Lk.14:7-*11*-14! 

 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.

The Debate

Posted on February 7, 2014

I enjoyed the debate by two great men, Bill Nye and Ken Ham.  It was Evolutionist vs. Creationist. However, it was a bit dull and there weren’t any hard hitting questions asked or answered.

You could tell the passion both men hold for their beliefs. Mr. Nye asked some questions that are confusing, debatable, uncertain or just misunderstood. He spoke about how Science is always certain. That ascertain is really false. You probably can name several things that has changed as science learned more. Consequentially, that “fact” has changed. Conversely, Mr. Ham didn’t provide any (yep, I’m going to use the “S” word) scientific facts to back up his assertions. Typically religions don’t do that since faith is the foundational stone upon what it is built on. Nevertheless conversations like this should be addressed in a civil manner like they did.

My question to us is: “Can we adequately defend our faith?  We will be confronted with naysayers and unbelievers.  What do we do?  What should we do?  What should we say?

Let me your thoughts.

The truth is told in History!

Ecc.1:1The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem. 2Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity. 3What profit hath a man of all his labour which he taketh under the sun? 4One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth forever. 5The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he arose. 6The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits. 7All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again. 8All things are full of labour; man cannot utter it: the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing. 9The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun: 10Is there anything whereof it may be said, See, this is new? It hath been already of old time, which was before us. 11There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after.

This is a quote from then the wised man in the whole world and to whom there would be no equal ever to come along; until Jesus who is the Spirit of History or Prophecy as seen in Rev.19:10; who was no mere man but actually God in the flesh as seen in scripture as we were told by the Apostle Paul in 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. As we see that God is actually the Holy Spirit who became flesh and blood and by whom we are sealed and purchased with His blood seen in 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.

With all this said and presented as factual evidences for my train of thought; I too will stand on the authority of the Holy Bible our scriptures in which we can rely on for its stability in factual evidences; which no man can compare their finding to, other than history, which has proven the success of the Word of God! When God speaks and says it will happen it is as good as happened; Is.55:11So 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! Beings God cannot lie as told to us in scripture time and time again in many verses that I will only list two for verification but there are many more than this I am about to provide; Num.23:19; Mal.3:6; on His consistency and these two for His truthfulness; Tit.1:2 and Heb.6:18 see also Col.1:5-6 too.

All of this is still hearsay of another book written by men who were moved by the Holy Spirit; who is the Spirit of Jesus Christ as shown in 2 Pt.1:19-21 and 1 Pt.1:9-11 which is God’s own Spirit seen in Ro.8:9 which shows the Oneness of all truths ever to be uttered in one Person of Jesus Christ, who merely says it and it appears as seen in Jn.1:1-18 who is the begotten or incarnated God in the Greek original scripts! All this proves to us that God’s word is irrefutable just for its shear accuracy; with the evidences in Archeology to substantiate this point!

When anyone ever has a doubt about the Bible and the word of God being truthful all we have to do is go back to history and see this time and time again how scripture has coincided with actual historical events! I will not go into all the geological evidences, as to the origin of species or vegetation or anything of the like but I will go into one very important person who stands in history of the ancient forefathers of history writers to prove that Jesus did in fact exist as it is written in the Roman history books written by a Jew who turned to heathenism to save his own hide as we see in Josephus’ writings as well to the fact the Jesus was well known historical figure; and that He was crucified by the authorization of His own brethren for claiming to be just who He said He was; as seen in Jn.8:58 and if we do not understand this and acknowledge this too we will die in our sins as seen in Jn.8:24! There is only one I Am!

I will use only one writing for my evidences of the accuracy of the written word of God as being completely faithful in its truthfulness! That was no less published by one of them; a scientist of a sort if you will; he was a good well balanced man with an education that is completely verifiable as to his academia in Mathematics, as well as several other teachings of the natural sciences for his engineering degrees as well as Law if I remember right as well as Theology, and Philosophical pursuits as well! This man’s name in Clarence Larkin who wrote Dispensational Truth! How appropriate for this subject matter! I just happen to be rereading his book and noticed in it, that he has just what I’m looking for as factual evidences in the historical probabilities of the prophecies of Jesus coming true as recorded in the Holy Bible is quite astronomical in his calculations: For example on page 6-7 of Clarence’s book he calculates some figures for us in the relativity of probabilities of Prophecy, in how accurate the bible is.

First let us start off with this one; I will just quote it exactly as it is written (sic.),

Mountain Peaks of Prophecy

 The Bible is unlike all other “sacred books” in that it bases its “Authenticity” and “Authority” on PROPHECY. All other “sacred books” contain no predictions as to see into the future. If their authors had attempted to foretell future events, their non-fulfillment would, long ere this, have discredited their writings. Fulfilled prophecy is stronger evidence for the “Inspiration” and “Authenticity” of the scriptures than miracles. Prophecy is not a “haphazard guess” nor a “probability” made up on uncertain data like our “Whether Probabilities.”

Prophecy is:

“HISTORY WRITTEN IN ADVANCE,”

Or, as another has said—“Prophecy is the MOLD OF HISTORY.”

The importance of the study of the Prophetic Scriptures is seen when we recall that two-thirds of the scriptures are Prophetic, either in type, symbol, or direct statement; and more than one-half of the Old Testament prophecies, and nearly all of the New Testament, point to the events yet future. Then this is a “Dark Word,” and men need the “Sure Word of Prophecy” to LIGHT them over the stormy “Sea of Time.” 2 Pt.1:19: When men see that God has a “Plan of Purpose” in the “Ages” they take heart, and have something to pin their faith to. It was because the religious leaders of Christ’s day were not students of the Prophetic Scriptures that they failed to recognize Him when He came, and if the religious leaders of our day despise and reject the study of Prophecy, the will not be ready for Christ’s Second Coming.

There are “Four Prophetic Periods” clearly outlined in the scriptures.

1.     Patriarchal—B. C. 1921-1491

2.     Mosaic—B. C. 1491-1370

3.     Jewish—Post Exilic—B. C. 500-400

                         Exilic—         B. C. 600-500

                         Pre-Exilic—   B. C. 900-600

                               (400 Years of Silence)

            4. Apostolic— A. D. 27-100

These Prophecies divide themselves into three grant divisions:

1.     Past—Fulfilled Prophecies

2.     Present—Fulfilling Prophecy

These are the Prophecies that refer to the Jews, the nations and the moral and religious character of the times.

3. Future—Unfulfilled Prophecy

“Requirements” of a genuine prediction are five in number:

1.     It must have been made known PRIOR to its fulfillment.

2.     It must be beyond all HUMAN FORESIGHT.

3.     It must give Details.

4.     A SUFFICIENT TIME MUST EPLAPSE BETWEEN ITS PUBLICATION AND FULFILLMENT TO EXCLUDE THE PROPHET     OR ANY INTERESTED PARTIES, FROM FULFILLING IT.

5.     There must be a CLEAR AND EVIDENT FULFILLMENT OF THE PROPHECY.

The value of the argument for the “Inspiration of the Scriptures” from prophecy is evident when study the Law of “COMPOUND PROBABILITIES.”

If I were to predict and earth quake in Philadelphia next year the chance would be 1in 2 that it would occur: If I should add another prediction, that it would be on the fourth of July, the chances is decreased 1 in 4. And if I add another detail, that it would be in the daytime, the chance then becomes 1 in 8. And if I should add a fourth detail the chance would then be 1 in 32. And if the details were 10 in number, the chance would be 1 in 1024.

Now there were 25 specific predictions made by the Old Testament Prophets bearing on the betrayal, trial, death and burial of Jesus. These were uttered by different Prophets during the periods from B. C. 1000 to B. C. 500, yet they were all literally fulfilled in 24 hours in one person. According to the law of “Compound Probabilities” there was one chance in 33,554,432 that these 25 predictions would be fulfilled as prophesied. If one prophet should make several predictions as to some one event, he might by collusion with others bring it to pass, but when a number of prophets, distributed over several centuries, give detailed and specific predictions as to some event, the charge of collusion cannot be sustained. It is a fact that there were 109 predictions literally fulfilled at Christ’s First Advent in the flesh. Apply the Law of “Compound Probabilities” to this number and the chance was only 1 in BILLIONS that they would all be fulfilled in one person.

The argument that Jesus employed to convince those two mourning disciples walking to Emmaus that He was “The Messiah,” was the appeal to “Prophecy.” “And beginning at Moses and ALL THE PROPHETS, He expounded unto them in ALL THE SCRIPTURES” (O. T. Scriptures), the things concerning Himself.” Lk.24:27. It would be intensely interesting reading, amazingly helpful, if we only had in Luke’s gospel a full report of that afternoon’s conversation. The two disciples were familiar with the things that had occurred the previous week at the arrest, trail, crucifixion and burial of Jesus, as well as the rumors of His resurrection. It was not difficult therefore for Jesus to take those things and by quoting from the Old Testament scriptures show that they were just what the prophets had foretold would happen to the Messiah when He came. He reminded them that the prophet had said that the Messiah should be sold for 30 pieces of silver (Zech.11:12), be betrayed by a friend (Ps.41:9), forsaken by His disciples (Zach.13:7), accused by false witnesses (Ps.35:11), be dumb before His accusers (Is.53:7), be scourged (Is.50:6), His garments parted (Ps.22:18), mocked by His enemies (Ps.22:7-8), be given Gall and Vinegar to drink (Ps.69:21), not a bone of His body broken (Ps.34:20), die with malefactors (Is.53:12), that the price of His betrayal should be used to purchase a “Potter’s Field” (Zech.11:13), and that He should be buried in a rich man’s tomb Is.53:9.

But Jesus doubtless did not stop with simply proving that crucified Christ fulfilled all the requirements of prophecy. It was a long walk they had. Jesus doubtless joined them soon after they left Jerusalem for Emmaus, which was some six miles away, and so had ample time in which to outline the “Prophetic Portrait” of the Messiah. Turning to Ge.22:7-8, He pictured Isaac as a “Type” of Christ and that God spared Abraham’s son, but did not spare His own Son. He then called attention to the institution of “The Passover,” and recalled the fact that in preparing the lamb for roasting, that two spits were used, one thrust lengthwise through the body for support over the fire, and the other across the shoulders for turning, thus symbolizing the Cross on which the Lamb of God was suspended. He then reminded them that Jesus had said in one of His discourses—“And if I be LIFTED UP, will draw all men unto me.” John12:32. And having thus refreshed their memories, He took them back to that incident in history of the Children of Israel of “The Brazen Serpent.” And pointed out that that was a type of how men are bitten with the serpents with sin, and need a Saviour, and how Jesus by being lifted up took the place of the “Brazen Serpent,” and that all that look to him in faith shall be delivered from the results of sin. Then Jesus spoke of the Prophet Jonah, and what befell him, and recalled His own prophecy, which doubtless they had heard but forgotten, that—“As Jonah was three days and three nights in the whales belly, so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth” (Mt.12:40), Thus showing them that they should not have been surprised at the report they had heard that morning, that Jesus had RISEN FROM THE DEAD.

Is it any wonder that Jesus thus went on outlining the “Prophetic Christ” and comparing Him with the “Historic Christ” they had known and loved, that their heart “BURNED WITHIN THEM” as He talked with them by the way, and opened up to them the Scriptures. Lk.24:32. How easy a conundrum seems when we know the answer, and how simple the Scriptures become when we see Christ in them, for “the TESTIMONY OF JESUS” is the “Spirit of Prophecy,” Rev.19:10. That is, the Spirit and purpose of all Prophecy is to testify of Jesus. How important then is the study of Prophecy.

Now we have seen that here were 109 predictions of the Old Testament Prophets literally fulfilled at Christ’s First Advent, but there are 845 quotations from the Old Testament in the New Testament, and 333 of these refer to Christ. They vary from Types, and Figures, that seem meaningless unless you place Christ in them, to exact predictions that at times descend to the minutest details. The only books of the Old Testament not quoted in the New Testament are Ruth, Ezra, Nehemiah, Songs of Solomon and Obadiah.

This shows well enough that there is more than enough substantiation of the prophecies of the Old Testament to the New carried more than enough evidence to the fact that the Holy Word of God is more than just the word of God it is as the author I just got through writing about tells us in his own words that when God speaks He actually sets the mold for history in the future! There is not a man made computer that can get to the accuracy that is set forth in our Holy Bible! It is the irrefutable and inerrant word of God who cannot lie! What He says is coming true without a doubt in my mind and any mind that is going to heaven; without faith it is impossible to please God, Heb.11:6!

The whole point to all that I have written is that we do not need to defend the Holy Bible the Word of God because it speak volumes for itself; I once heard it put something like this; the Word of God or the Holy Bible is just like a 2500lbs grizzly bear or a big old Brahma Bull, you don’t have to defend it you just let it lose and it will take care of itself. I might add; if anyone messes with it they too, they will be destroyed in short order at the Last Trump and the Shout of Michael! We will then have to face our word, ever idle word that we have uttered (Mt.12:36-37), and it better line up with His who spoke it from heaven! Ro.3:4God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written: That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.

These are the End Times!

Help us build a House of God where it is needed, among the poor, homeless, widowed and orphaned!

Mt.25:40And the King shall answer and say unto them: Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. See also 1 Jn.4:16Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren (Are we not all one flesh under Adam and Eve? If so then all the world is our brethren!). 17But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?18My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth! 19And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him!

And James; Jms.2:14What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? 15If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, 16And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? 17Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone!

We need Donations for the Widows, Orphaned, Naked, Sick and Poor; Church Building Fund for Accra, Ghana, Africa: (Brother Davies at “The Shekinah Glory Assembly”) and For Bibles and church furniture: Under Construction. The foundation is in, most the brick walls are up on outside, still needed 1000 more bricks, 20+ bags more of concrete and three more loads of sand (they are small truck loads) plus now we need to start funding for the roofing materials,  windows, and doors to enclose the building. 100% of your donations go to the field of operations and to the people it is intended to help! Lord’s Way Ministries is going to support this effort in any way we can; all your help will be directly routed to Accra, Ghana, Africa thank you for your support.

These are the End Times!

 Lk.12: Brother Ify many things that are going on today is the result of unfinished business that was left over from an old generation of the Jews moving forward and not realizing who they crucified (1 Cor.2:8; Jn.8:24 & 58 the I Am!); and many things that are going on are carried over from the Roman Catholic era which are heathenistic in nature which have been carried over from the dark ages; which are going to presently be judged by our God in the near future. The times of the end of days are getting closer and closer together and very soon now we will see things coming faster and faster between catastrophes. Men are bent on killing men for more and more power and riches just like is says in James in chapter 4:1From whence come wars and fightings among you? Come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members? 2Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. 3Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts (1Jn.2:7-17).

We see the same things going on today that went on in the days of Jeremiah as he prophesied to Israel about her adultery she was committing with her vain imaginations seen in Jer.7 through chapter 12 and further chapters as well; also seen in Ecc.1:10Is there anything whereof it may be said, See, this is new? It hath been already of old time, which was before us. 11There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after.

Is this not where we are at today as well? Just as in the days of Israel’s apostasy we too face the same retribution because of our Pastors not heeding the word of God and to have true fear of God because they preach this all loving God that is in their own vain imaginations! Our Jesus has assured us that there is a fire that is about to be poured out on all flesh and He is straight until it be accomplished: Lk.12:49I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled? Just as we are in a drought in these last days it too was forecasted by our Lord’s prophets as well; Amos 8:9And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord GOD, that I will cause the sun to go down at noon, and I will darken the earth in the clear day (This is about to come to pass with the Moon eclipsing the sun in a few months when the red moons (Blood Moons because all the volcano activity in Indonesia! They have two volcanoes now erupting and very soon there will be more volcano activity around the world as well, even as Krakatau who sits now rumbling, getting ready for His voice to call her into action once again!), will start to appear on the feast days of Israel’s holidays coming very soon!):

10And I will turn your feasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation; and I will bring up sackcloth upon all loins, and baldness upon every head; and I will make it as the mourning of an only son, and the end thereof as a bitter day.

11Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD: 12And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it. All because the day of the Lord has already come and gone and they were left behind to face His wrath to come! This very day of which I now speak is rapidly approaching us and the whole world lies in its shame while it refuses to repent! Rev.2:5; and only the church of brotherly love will be pulled and snatched out of the way from Jesus’ wrath to come! Rev.3:7-13 will receive a new name to a new heavenly earth that cometh down from our Father above; who will wipe away every tear of our eyes for so many loved ones who have perished; to be remembered no more!

13In that day shall the fair virgins and young men faint for thirst. 14They that swear by the sin of Samaria, and say, Thy god, O Dan, liveth; and, The manner of Beersheba liveth; even they shall fall, and never rise up again.

These are the ones who have a form of godliness but lack the power to lead an overcoming life style; from which we were told to leave alone, for after we have rebuked them a time or two we to should leave them alone and let their apostasy be carried out to its full sin as told to us by Paul to Titus in chapter three; 3:10A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject; 11Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.

We have not time to waste on them who will not listen; God must draw them to Jesus as seen in scripture in Mt.11:27All 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. God will reveal Himself to the people who are of Jesus Christ because the knowledge of the Son is the knowledge of the Father as revealed to us in Jesus Christ who revealed Himself to us by His words of life to us, who believe that Jesus is who He says He is and that is the I AM seen in Jn.8:58 and again in 24 with a curse to all who will not believe in Him as the I Am! Only Jesus can reveal Himself to each man after that man searches the scriptures which are of Him for our salvation seen in Jn.5:39 and Phil.2:12!

If we preach the true word of God to people, the word will do all the works needed for each one who is called and chosen by our Lord, that was preordained to come to Him! Seen in Ecc.12:7Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it. And only those who have come down from above are to return unto Him who gave the Spirit of life to them as seen in 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. Just as John the Baptist who was Elijah who was to return to earth and prepare the way for our Lords first coming as shown to us by Jesus Himself in Mt.17:11And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things. 12But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them. 13Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist.

Only those who really walk with the Lord will in fact come away unscathed or untouched because they too walked as Enoch walked and was taken because they will walk before the Lord and be perfect (1 Jn.5:18We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not. For they have received the Lord’s grace of the divine covenant of God’s repentances to what He was about to do to them who are dead in their sins! Seen in Ac.11:15-18, that were justified in the Name above every name, by which any salvation at all comes from in the glorious name of Jesus Christ given for that reason alone, Ac.4:12; 1 Cor.6:11 for our justification in the eyes of our Lord God who will judge the quick and the dead, Phil.2:10!)! Every woman, man, and child that has received the Baptism of the Holy Ghost is equipped to go forth and give testimonies of Jesus in their lives and start winning souls! We must be found in His harvest fields when He returns for His bride, she must be continually working and striving to grow in the knowledge of our Lord God in Jesus (2 Pt.3:18) reconciling the world who is righteous in His ways; as seen in 2 Cor.5:10For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. 11Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are made manifest unto God; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences. 12For we commend not ourselves again unto you, but give you occasion to glory on our behalf, that ye may have somewhat to answer them which glory in appearance, and not in heart! 13For whether we be beside ourselves, it is to God: or whether we be sober, it is for your cause. 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 (Jesus).

The Sacrifice must be a Holy Sacrifice!

 Mal.1:8And if ye offer the blind for sacrifice, is it not evil? And if ye offer the lame and sick, is it not evil? Offer it now unto thy governor; will he be pleased with thee, or accept thy person? Saith the LORD of hosts!

 

Mal.1:6A son honoureth his father, and a servant his master: if then I be a father, where is mine honour? and if I be a master, where is my fear? saith the LORD of hosts unto you, O priests, that despise my name. And ye say, Wherein have we despised thy name? 7Ye offer polluted bread upon mine altar; and ye say, Wherein have we polluted thee? In that ye say, The table of the LORD is contemptible. 8And if ye offer the blind for sacrifice, is it not evil? and if ye offer the lame and sick, is it not evil? offer it now unto thy governor; will he be pleased with thee, or accept thy person? saith the LORD of hosts. 9And now, I pray you, beseech God that he will be gracious unto us: this hath been by your means: will he regard your persons? saith the LORD of hosts. 10Who is there even among you that would shut the doors for nought? neither do ye kindle fire on mine altar for nought. I have no pleasure in you, saith the LORD of hosts, neither will I accept an offering at your hand. 11For from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same my name shall be great among the Gentiles; and in every place incense shall be offered unto my name, and a pure offering: for my name shall be great among the heathen, saith the LORD of hosts. 12But ye have profaned it, in that ye say, The table of the LORD is polluted; and the fruit thereof, even his meat, is contemptible. 13Ye said also, Behold, what a weariness is it! and ye have snuffed at it, saith the LORD of hosts; and ye brought that which was torn, and the lame, and the sick; thus ye brought an offering: should I accept this of your hand? saith the LORD. 14But cursed be the deceiver, which hath in his flock a male, and voweth, and sacrificeth unto the LORD a corrupt thing: for I am a great King, saith the LORD of hosts, and my name is dreadful among the heathen.

The people of today treat the word of the Lord in the same manner as if it is contemptible to them if they take time to read it because the more they read it the more they realized that they are just further away from the Lord than that they really understood! Therefore they think they will be held to a lesser degree of punishment if they are in less sin! They do not understand it only takes one sin to be forever departed away from the one who cleanses them by His words, Jn.15:3! Only if we keep them! There is a dreadful day that is coming to our Lord’s earthly creation! The only one who can cleanses them by His words are rejecting the hearing of them, unless they get it from another man who is after their tithing; so he is going to tell them anything they want to her, (2 Tm.4:3-4)! All the while the  Lord is calling and holding back the times that are rapidly approaching, right now the Lord has the four winds held back of total destruction trying to glean one more souls (Mt.24:14); for He would that none perish! His Hell was designed for the fallen angels who deserted their first abode and habitations! Because they left their first love; who loved them with all that is in Him who is made of Love; for it is the greatest characteristic of our Great God, that He created a creation that He could redeem, unto Himself so that He could have fellowship with it! Only for this world to turn its back on Him, just as the fallen angels have done! Jer.5:7How shall I pardon thee for this? thy children have forsaken me, and sworn by them that are no gods: when I had fed them to the full, they then committed adultery, and assembled themselves by troops in the harlots’ houses. 8They were as fed horses in the morning: every one neighed after his neighbour’s wife. 9Shall I not visit for these things? Saith the LORD: and shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this?

Shall not our Lord do the same thing to us who have gone a whoring after each man in his own likeness as he would a woman? And a woman who has done the same things who has lost all natural affections for her husband and children and run after any and all strange lusts of the ages? God changes not; He will not hold His anger back much longer; He will rebuke and hold not back his repenting; Jer.15:6Thou hast forsaken me, saith the LORD, thou art gone backward: therefore will I stretch out my hand against thee, and destroy thee; I am weary with repenting.

Only those who have found this true love will be seen in His chambers in the end of days at His banquet prepared for His bride who made herself ready; not by some priest who lord’s over the Lord’s sheep! Only those who preach the true word of God will be seen in His chambers as well! Judgment starts with the house of God first and if the righteous are barely saved we all know what will happen to the rest! They are headed for the Lake of Fire Jesus talked about, where the worm dieth not and the fire is never quenched and as Ezekiel said in Eze.22:30And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none. 31Therefore have I poured out mine indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath: their own way have I recompensed upon their heads, saith the Lord GOD! God sought for a righteous man to stand in the gap and there was none! Unless we and our praise and worship are pure and holy, it will not be acceptable to Him who is Pure, Holy and Just and no respecter of persons! All who fail to meet His standards are these: Eze.21:31And I will pour out mine indignation upon thee, I will blow against thee in the fire of my wrath, and deliver thee into the hand of brutish men, and skilful to destroy (Satan who was allowed to exist,  just for this occasion,  2 Tm.2:19-20!)! 32Thou shalt be for fuel to the fire; thy blood shall be in the midst of the land; thou shalt be no more remembered: for I the LORD have spoken it! God changes not, Mal.3:6!

Only those who have been cleansed by the word of God will be found in His pleasure because their sacrifices were found to be pure in His eyes; such as these: Mal.3:16Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name! 17And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him! 18Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not! (How are we to judge the angels and the world, unless we have God’s words in our hearts? See 1 Cor.6:1-ffs!) Only they (His servants who are His Saints, see the Greek word for Saint!) will be spared because the fear of the Lord is the beginning of all wisdom and understanding! Understanding is the ability to use wisdom which is nothing more than knowledge of right and wrong; being able to discern between them and to know what it is the God is looking for in His people, who like to call themselves by His name! See 1 Jn.4:1Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. 2Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: 3And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. 4Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. 5They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. 6We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

This is how we will know who is of God and who is not; who walk in their own light! They cannot stand the Light of our Great God, who is the light of the world seen in Jn.8:12Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. They walk in their own artificial light of a vain imagination, worshipping a God who is merciful and kind to sinners and everything is acceptable to God now because they keep saying the Law is done away with! The only law done away with is the Law of Sacrifices to God of animals and of clean and unclean foods, which are cleansed by the word of thanksgiving spoken over the food which is blessed in the name of Jesus, which all prayer had better have that name on it for its sealing! In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen!

If a person knows it to be a sin then it is a sin unto him: Ro.14:23And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin. This was stated for meats and drink for sacrifices and new moons and festivals and even the Sabbath nothing more! Our works which is our fruits must match up to the given word of God or we have not an acceptable sacrifice of praise and worship given to our great God in Jesus Christ! Our fruits must line up with God’s words in order for us to be in His righteousness, seen in Tit.1:16They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate! They are the first to spew out yes I am a Christian and yet walk in darkness and go around liking the things of this untoward generation; thereby we shall know them by their fruits! Many preach a clear and faithful doctrine of justification and yet walk in darkness still! You can tell these by their own walk in their lives, does it line up with the word of God? If it doesn’t then that man or woman is false in everything, walking about waiting for the Lion to take them away into Hell forevermore! Their prayer and worship is nothing but an abomination to our God! Prov.15:8The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD: but the prayer of the upright is his delight. Prov.21:8The way of man is froward and strange: but as for the pure, his work is right. Prov.28:9He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination. See Ps.37:16A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked. 17For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the LORD up holdeth the righteous. 18The LORD knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be forever. The only time our prayer is heard from a sinner that will be answered to his liking; will be when his repentance is accepted of God because God has seen in their hearts a true sorrowfulness and willingness to serve God! Every person needs to know, that what they are about to do is become a servant of the Lord their God and uphold His given word to them! It must be an oath between them and the Lord our God, they must know the cost of discipleship and what it will mean to serve the Lord their God with all their hearts, mind, spirit, body, strength, and soul! It takes everything to become a child of God holding nothing back! Just as Abraham held nothing back from the Lord, even his first born! If we love our children, families, husbands, wives, material wealth, the world’s riches, the air we breathe or the water we drink or the food we eat more than the Lord, we will be found as a covetous child of God and will be thrown out, with their inheritance! Just as Saul the first King of Israel was for his covetousness! Covetousness is seen as idolatry, as is the sin of wickedness which is seen as rebellion to His every word!

This is to know the cost of discipleship, which can only be achieved with a pure heart, of love for Him, as He has shown unto us, with His own life, being given for us as we do the same for Him; as a faithful servant of God! When we have been tried and found true to our hearts and the cares of this world do not affect us any longer; than that is when we will truly know our Lord God, as a true Friend of Jesus Christ; and be allowed into all mysteries of His mind (1 Cor.2:1-16); because we sought Him in His righteousness and all things will then be added unto you, Mt.6:33; as well as Mt.7:7-8!

This is when you can start to become an Apostle after you know the mind of Christ; we will know His will for us and the world around us and we know what to then pray for as His Spirit leads us into all truths that are in His words to us in the proper order in which He wants to teach you all things 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. 10For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little: 11For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people! 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!

This is the rest; and they of this age will not hear it, because they listen to men, who have not received the Holy Spirit and still teach man’s doctrines from man’s seminaries, which are just that man’s teachings! They have not the Holy Spirit leading them into the scriptures in the proper order for His words to be placed in their hearts so they come up with the wrong interpretations of the contextual agreement that God was trying to show them in the first place! That’s when they end up as these in the next verses: who have a form of godliness but lack the power to lead an overcoming life style!

13But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken!

14Wherefore hear the word of the LORD, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem. 15Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves: 16Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste. 17Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place. 18And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it! 19From the time that it goeth forth it shall take you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report. 20For the bed is shorter than that a man can stretch himself on it: and the covering narrower than that he can wrap himself in it. 21For the LORD shall rise up as in mount Perazim, he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon; that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange act. 22Now therefore be ye not mockers, lest your bands be made strong: for I have heard from the Lord GOD of hosts a consumption, even determined upon the whole earth! This time is rapidly approaching us and is even at the door today!

The word of God has gone out of His mouth and it shall accomplish that which He intended for it to do! Just as it was shown to us in Is.55:11So 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! Just as Hell and damnation has been brought out of the mouth of God by His word so too the path of righteousness which can then lead to Heaven and a forever lifetime of joy and happiness then too, can come out from between the same lips! Seen in these verses: Ps.37:1Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. 2For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb: 3Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. 4Delight thyself also in the LORD: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. 5Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. 6And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday. 7Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass. 8Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil. 9For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth. 10For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be! 11But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace. 12The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth. 13The LORD shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming. 14The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation (דָֽרֶךְ ḏā·reḵ; means mannerisms or the way in which they go, ones characteristics! Their fruits by which they will be known! Or works that they will be rewarded for, as seen in Rev.22:12!). 15Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken. 16A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked. 17For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the LORD upholdeth the righteous. 18The LORD knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be forever! 19They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied. 20But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the LORD shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away. 21The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous sheweth mercy, and giveth. 22For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth; and they that be cursed of him shall be cut off. 23The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way. 24Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand. 25I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread. 26He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed. 27Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore. 28For the LORD loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off. 29The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein forever. 30The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment. 31The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide. 32The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him. 33The LORD will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged. 34Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it! 35I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree. 36Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found. 37Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace. 38But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off. 39But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their strength in the time of trouble. 40And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.

These are the same Isaiah was talking about earlier in Is.55:5Behold, thou shalt call a nation that thou knowest not, and nations that knew not thee shall run unto thee because of the LORD thy God, and for the Holy One of Israel; for he hath glorified thee. 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. 10For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: 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. 12For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. 13Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the LORD for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.

When man quits being a respecter of persons and starts trusting only in the word of God, He then will be able to seek God’s face and find it! Otherwise man and this humanity of the proud and haughty will be brought down as the unforgivable servant who knew God and His ways but only went in the ways that was acceptable to the servant which was against the will of God; that is what is going to happen to all those who search and try to find God their way! Man has a way that seemeth right unto him, Prov.14:12There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof, is the ways of death! Man was created sinless and man created sin when he disobeyed God and received another’s word instead of God’s! That is when sin infested the whole earth and the whole earth must perish when the times of cleansing comes! Our Great God is about to do something brand new! It will only be for those who have purified themselves with His words of Truth, (Jn.1:17) which is Jesus Christ in their lives! Otherwise they are only are fooling themselves straight to Hell! Only those who confess their sins and seek mercy will find it, Prov.28:13He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them, shall have mercy! 

This is simple doctrine; obedience to God’s every word is their only hope or find yourself perishing believing your own words will work for you! I refer you to Jesus Himself who is the bread which came down from heaven to be our Spiritual food; but we must be sustained by His every word as seen in Mt.4:4But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God; Who will be those who abide in his word. That cleanses us, Jn.15:3! This Holy Bible is our instruction book on how to get to heaven; to God’s Kingdom that must go through none other than Jesus Christ because Jesus is the Kingdom of God; seen in these verses, 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!

Mk.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 Lord30And 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. 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 (the scribe answered correctly but still did not know the one true God was standing right there in front of him!); 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!

 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. Because the Kingdom of God was standing right there in front of the scribe; as the answer is plainly seen in Jn.14:1Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me! 2In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you.

2BI go to prepare a place for you! Because Jesus is God incarnate the begotten God in Jn.1:18 in the original Greek manuscripts! Which lines correctly up with Apostles Paul’s writing in 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!

The glory of God which can be given to no other: Is.42:8I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven image! 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!

This is the glory of God seen in the face of Jesus; 1 Cor.2:6For 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: As even Jesus revealed Himself to us, time and time again, when he displayed the glory of the Father that was in Him, for He doeth the works, seen in Jn.14:7- 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 is the Holy Spirit as seen in 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. And John20: 28And Thomas answered and said unto him, My LORD and my God. If Jesus was not God He would have had to tell it right there and then because God cannot be part of a lie!

11Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake. The very works Jesus did show who He really was, for it revealed God’s glory in Jesus, Jn.11:40! See also Lk.17:17-18! Were not the Lepers to come back and give glory to God who healed them? That is the reason the Omnipresent Holy Spirit kept saying, “In Him I Am,” well pleased! Mt.3:17 and we are to listen to Him Jesus, Mt.17:5!

12Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. (To dwell in the light in which no man can approach, seen in 1 Tm.6:15-16!)

13And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. Are we not the Son’s of God who hear His words, Jn.8:47 who glorify the Father by our actions? Which is Jesus Himself, Jn.16:27-28! The key word in theses passages in verses 27 and 28 is the word AGAIN! 1 Tm.3:16 UNDERSTAND THE SIMPLICITY OF God in Jesus that even a child can get Mt.18:1-ffs!

14If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

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, 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.

 Because they are ONE in the Same, Jn.10:30I and my Father are one. When you have seen Jesus you have seen the invisible God, (Jn.12:45) who is the Holy Spirit, with the only blaspheme clause in the whole Bible and that is to disobey His word (Which cleanses us, Jn.15:3) and His name (that bring salvation to us, for all power is attached to that one name (Jn.5:43; Jn.14:26; Jn.15:26; Jn.1:17! Which is Jesus’ own Spirit to us! Jn.14:18!), Mt.28:18 and Jn.14:14; Col.3:17 so we had better be baptized in that name for our justification (1 Cor.6:11) and regeneration (Tit.3:5) seen in His scripture given to us by His Holy Spirit as men of Old and of the New Testament wrote them unto us who are redeemed by knowing our Lord and Saviour according to His scriptures seen in 2 Pt.1:19-21 and 1 Pt.1:9-11 which is the same as the Spirit of Jesus Christ who said to Zachariah in the 12th chapter; they will look upon me whom they have pierced; 12:10 just the same as in Jn.19:37!

If Israel who is God’s children by the promise were not spared for their sins and were rebuked turned over to brutish men for their judgment that was the cup of affliction, which they too drank to the full measure; think not to yourselves that because we have His name these things will not come upon us! Just because we call ourselves by His name and say to everyone proudly, “I am a Christian”; it only adds to our shame which will be poured out on us in the end, if we do not repent and are found to be justified and living according to His words to us! The only way to be justified is to have faith in His every word to us as we obey them, for they cleanse us of our sins; His word to us, is the only truth in this wicked world!

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. Only when we know Jesus is our God with us; just exactly as scripture has told us to believe, as seen in 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. Whose name is too wonderful (The meaning shown to us to be a secret, in Judges 13:18!), which was revealed to the men of the Old Testament to be Councilor (the Paraclete in Jn.15:26; Παράκλητος; Paraklētos the comforter and Counsellor, Is.9:6!) see Is.9:6For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace! When we understand this is Jesus Christ all by Himself who is God manifested in the flesh as shown to us in 1 Tm.3:16! Then and only then can our worship be given to Him who it is worthy of receiving it, (Col.2:9-10)! That is when we start to worship in truth and in His Spirit because you receive Him at His own words given to you! ~

If you cannot see it by now then you must pray that He (Jesus) will allow you to see it in His words to you, Mt.11:27All 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! Only the Son can reveal Himself to you when you receive His words to you and you repent of your sins and receive His words for only those of God can receive the word of God seen in scripture yet again; Jn.8:47He that is of God heareth God’s words: Otherwise you are still one of these; ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God. That is just what the Apostle John said too; 1 Jn.3:1Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. 2Beloved, now are we the sons of God; and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. 3And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure! 4Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. 5And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin. 6Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him (Jn.8:11 and Jn.5:14!)! 7Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. 8He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. 9Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. 10In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother (if we allow our sons and daughters to go and fight with other nations; we are disrespecting the word of God, which says do no evil to repay an evil, Ro.12:1-21;( Is this not a commandment of God to us?)! 11For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another! 12Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother: And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous: 13Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you. 14We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren! He that loveth not his brother abideth in death. 15Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him. 16Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren (Are we not all one flesh under Adam and Eve? If so then all the world is our brethren!). 17But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him? 18My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth. 19And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him. 20For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things. 21Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God. 22And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight. 23And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment. 24And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us!

We have overcome death by keeping to the word of God which is His commandments to us which the world cannot receive because it knoweth Him not: Jn15:12This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. 13Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. 14Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. 15Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. 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: 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 upholding all the words that the Apostles have spoken to us or are we allowing preachers of today’s Theologies and Dogma, to dictate to us, “What thus sayeth the Lord?”)! 21But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me!

22If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin. 23He that hateth me hateth my Father also. 24If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father (Because they are one in the same, the Holy Spirit became flesh and poured out His blood as seen in Ac.20:28!)!

25But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause!

26But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth (Jn.1:17), which proceedeth from the Father, He shall testify of me: (Because Jesus is the Spirit of God’s Grace and Truth!

27And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning! Because we have come down from the Father of all light and will return unto Him who has given us His Spirit, Ecc.12:7! Because we have continued in His every word which is a commandment to us seen in Ecc.12:13Let 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. Because we have studied and shown ourselves approved rightly dividing His every word to us seen in 2 Tm.2:15!

The word of God cannot be broken (Jn.10:35) it all must be used in compliance to His will or we will be found a liar when we are judged because only God is true, Ro.3:4God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged! Our thoughts had better line up with His (Mt.12:36-37) and we will be judged for every idle word and we had better speak His truths or we will be found out to be a LIAR; and all liars are headed for Hell! Rev.21:27And there shall in no wise enter into it (Heaven) anything that defileth; neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life (Because they adhered to it (The Word of God!) with all their hearts, mind, spirits, and souls with all their strengths and everything that was in them!!!).

Do Not Meddle in Another Man’s Affairs!

1 Thes.4:9But as touching brotherly love ye need not that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another. 10And indeed ye do it toward all the brethren which are in all Macedonia: but we beseech you, brethren, that ye increase more and more; 11And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you; 12That ye may walk honestly toward them that are without, and that ye may have lack of nothing!

I too, will not meddle in man’s affairs; 2 Tm.2:3Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. 4No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier. 5And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully! But I will pick up a wounded and wended brother who has fallen in the fight to the path of righteousness and holiness, which is the only path that leads to God on High! 1 Thes.4:7For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness! You cannot call yourself a Saint of God without Holiness! People need to study the words of God such as sanctification, consecration, obedience, righteousness, holiness, justification, truth, grace; the gospel is more than just the good news; it is a way of life, to be regenerated in the Holy Spirit of God!

Preach the Word of God, be in season and out of season!

2 Tm.4:2Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.

 I will only preach what the Lord has me to teach! It is up to each and everyone who hears the word of God to either accept it for His word of life to them or the word of eternal damnation! 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 (Who Abide In the Word of God!~)! 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!

Just as it was prophesied over 2500 years ago to Daniel we see it coming to pass today! These days are upon us and we stand at the door waiting for our Lord to call out to us; for the heavens to open up, so we can open our doors immediately unto Him who calls us from the Heavens; and be found a wise servant, who has done only what has been told Him to do; Lk.17:7-10!

The things that were spoken of our Lord Jesus are about to come true: Lk.12:1In the mean time, when there were gathered together an innumerable multitude of people, insomuch that they trode one upon another, he began to say unto his disciples first of all, Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy! 2For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known. 3Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops. There is nothing that will not be revealed come judgment day! Only the sins of man that are covered in the blood of Jesus Christ as our God’s blood that can remove all sin to be seen never again will be those who are worshipping in His Holy Spirit and In His Truths! All because it was His Word that cleansed them of their sin when they abided in Him as told to do in John the 15th chapter!

Lk.12:4And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. 5But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him! The fear of God is the beginning of all wisdom, because after you know who God is and His awesome power, you will heed His every word, it is life unto you, who obey; or eternal death unto all who disobey Him! One or the other nothing in-between; there is no grey area with our Great God, for He sees to the heart of man and has recorded his every thought!

6Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? 7But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows. 8Also I say unto you: Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God: 9But he that denieth me before men shall be denied before the angels of God (You confess you are a Christian but have you ever taught a bible lesson or won a soul to the Lord?).

There is only two blaspheme clauses in the whole Bible!

 One is to curse the sovereign name of God; which is Salvation; and that is done by disobedience to His word; which was made flesh and dwelt among us: Which is the Holy Spirit of Grace and Truth! (Seen in Jn.1:12-13 and Jn.1:17! Who is the Spirit of Prophecy Rv.19:10; Jn.6:63; Mt.4:4; and Lk.4:4; who is the Rewarder of good or of bad, Rev.22:11-12!)

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 (Grieve not the Holy Spirit Ehp4:30! It is the unforgivable sin to grieve the Holy Spirit because you have then defiled the vessel that was His Temple! See 1 Cor.3:16-17 and 1 Cor.6:19-20 you were supposed to have been bought with the price no man can repay but with His own life and that is to serve God, with your own life; as seen in, Tit.3:5-8; Ac.20:28 and 2 Cor.6:14-18!)! 11And when they bring you unto the synagogues, and unto magistrates, and powers, take ye no thought how or what thing ye shall answer, or what ye shall say: 12For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say. The Holy Ghost will come upon you in that very same hour and tell you what you ought to say unto them, who are without knowledge and the fear of God! Have we begun to do these things we have been commanded to do?

13And one of the company said unto him, Master, speak to my brother, that he divide the inheritance with me. 14And he said unto him, Man, who made me a judge or a divider over you? 15And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth! The covetousness of these last days are seen around us in abundance; as we just look around and see all the flesh, with costly wardrobes, fine cars, and flesh overlapping ever belt and waist line as it tries to consume as much fine foods that could feed a starving nation is consumed by one family! 1 Jn.2:15Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him (Jms.4:4). 16For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 17And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof (1 Jn.5:19): but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever! Is this not America; that has walked in the lust of the flesh? Where is the mortification of the flesh, that wars against the Spirit (Gal.5:17); the Apostle Paul was speaking of in Ro.8:13? Only when we are lead by the Holy Spirit do we fulfill all the law, Gal.5:18 and seen also in 16 just prior to these verses as well as in Ro.8:4 for we will establish the law (Ro.3:31) in our hearts and in our walks and lifestyle, Col.3:17; 2 Cor.5:19-21 and 2 Cor.6:14-18; Phil.2:12!

 16And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully: 17And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits? 18And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods. 19And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry. 20But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee (Because he did not share his bounty with his families and friends and neighbors too!): then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided? 21So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God (Prov.28:8He that by usury and unjust gain increaseth his substance, he shall gather it for him that will pity the poor. See what the Holy Bible says about lending money and seeking gain from family and friends of God! Clear back to Exo.22:25; even to Due.23:19-20!)22And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on. 23The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment!

24Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls? 25And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit? 26If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest? 27Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 28If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and tomorrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith? 29And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind. 30For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.

31But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you. 32Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. 33Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth. 34For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. 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! To those who have learned to discern the spirits of right and wrong, Ac.17:11! Are you one of the Bereans?

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 (Covetous, contentious and rebellious; which is nothing more than disobedience to His given word to us!); 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, for eternity!)!

48But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes (Which were done in ignorance and were repented of!). 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? 50But I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how am I straitened till it be accomplished!

There are only these kinds of people who will be left in the end of days; it is shown to us in 1 Jn.5:18We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not (These are going to be with their maker!).

19And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness (These are not!).

20And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ: This is the true God, and eternal life (Those who know Jesus as their God; will see His face; if they keep themselves pure of heart, Mt.5:8!).

21Little children, keep yourselves from idols (Which means being covetous and making a false God which is not real and worshipping a God who you have made up in your own imagination!). Amen!

These things are today my friends!

51Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division: 52For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three. 53The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 54And he said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it is. 55And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be heat; and it cometh to pass. 56Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time? This is the time we are living in my friends; we too must come to understand the ways of our God and live according to His word and not the words of the world’s teachers who are not lining up with our Holy Bible!

57Yea, and why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right (Today as well!)? 58When thou goest with thine adversary to the magistrate, as thou art in the way, give diligence that thou mayest be delivered from him; lest he hale thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and the officer cast thee into prison. 59I tell thee, thou shalt not depart thence, till thou hast paid the very last mite. Lk.13:23Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them24Strive to enter in at the strait gate: (Strive here means to agonize, for that is the word used in the Greek! Means it is going to take superhuman effort and agonizing to enter into His realms of Holiness, 1 Pt.4:16-19!) : for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able!

The Door to repentance is about to shut once and forevermore!

 25When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are: 26Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets. 27But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity! 

This is when the whole world will begin to weep!

Lk.6:46And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?

 28There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out. 29And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the north, and from the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God. 30And, behold, there are last which shall be first, and there are first which shall be last. Many are called but few will be chosen; Mt.7:13-14 and further verses to 23; Mt.20:16So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen! And this last one in the same book Mt.22:14For many are called, but few are chosen! (The lord is definitely showing us a pattern here!)

The words of our great God will not come back void from which they were sent out to accomplish and they will be obeyed or the servant will fail and fall in his own faith and beliefs and misconceptions; because as we see in Mt.24:35Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. Just as it was preached in the beginning of this same book; Mt.5:17Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil (And if Jesus is the Way and the Truth and the Life we all must lead to get to the Father; then we must be Just as He is; as shown to us by the great apostle Paul in 1 Cor.11:1-2; and even in Ro.12:1-2-ffs!). 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 (Do you know where the least place in God’s universe is going to be, which is called Heaven? Hint; the Fire is never quenched and the worm dieth not!): but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven (And will be made ruler over all that He has!). 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! You know many people have said to me, “You can be so holy you that you are no earthly good!” Well guess what I don’t want to be any earthy good when the whole world lies in wickedness, 1 Jn.5:19! We are supposed to be sojourners, just traveling through this realm called reality; which when the truth is known is only temporal and is going to vanish very soon now! We had better be looking for a Kingdom that comes down from the Father above, which is called the New Jerusalem in the new Heavens from above!

How can our Righteousness exceed that of the scribes and Pharisees?

 Our righteousness must exceed that of the scribes and the Pharisees or we will not enter into His kingdom! Without Holiness no man will see God; Heb.12:14! That means set apart or consecrated for God’s work, that is what holiness is all about; being sanctified, called out from among this untoward generation who is defiled, Ac.2:38-40! Then you must keep unto all the doctrine which is handed down to us from the Apostles and then we can have the fulness of the God-head in us as well as in the Apostles! These gifts are given to us by the Holy Spirit according to our faith as it grows in the knowledge of our God! Belief put to work equals faith in ACTION (James chapter 2)! Then the word of God was confirmed in them, who believed seen in the Epistles for they were written to them who it had been confirmed to have had the Holy Ghost experience, with speaking in tongues as the Holy Spirit gave us the utterance! That is what is going on here 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), 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 (Mt.5:48 see also Gen.17:1 as well as Eph.5:27!). 9God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.

If we belong to the Great God in Jesus Christ and we are His children and we know His mind and His will for us; then we also should have supernatural gifts given to us because He said we could have them, if we have faith the size of a mustard seed; we will be able to remove any mountain in front of us, no matter what it is; because we know the will of God and it is up to the Son’s of God, to bring Glory to God! Jesus said if we were to ask anything in His name He will give it unto us, who want to glorify the Father; by the Son’s of God! Are we asking for things that are for His glory or are we just trying to make our great God our servants; instead of us being His servant? That’s what James is talking about here in Jms.4:1From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members? 2Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. 3Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. 4Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God! 5Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy?

People want to make God work for them, instead of us working for Him; seen in Ecc.12:13-14; they only want the thrills of that this world has to offer, which are these that are about to perish with the world seen in 1 Jn.2:1My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not! And if any man sin (In ignorance it is forgivable when we repent of it! See Num.15: and the verse right above the man picking up sticks in his presumptuous sin, and what happened to him! Mal.3:6 God changes not! Read Heb.12: it was given for this one reason, to stop presumptuous sin! Jn.8:11 and Jn.5:14 are still in effect! Jn.14:15 and Jn.8:51 because we hear the word of God being spoken to us by the Holy Spirit, Jn.8:47; Jn.6:45!), 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 (How can we be seen as perfect in the eye of our Great God, who sees to the very heart of man, unless we are in His truths which is His word to us? That is why Jesus sealed the 5th chapter of Matthew with be ye perfect as your Father which is in heaven is perfect (Gen.17:1 do a word study on the word perfect! This cannot be done unless we live the words of God in our lives; therefore many are called but few will be chosen! Mt.22:14!): 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!

7Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning (As of the beginning of time as it was written in Gen.1:1 through Rev.22:21!). The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning. 8Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth (Jn.8:12). 9He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now. 10He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him! 11But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes. 12I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name’s sake. 13I write unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning (Which is Jesus!). I write unto you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked one (And you sin not!). I write unto you, little children, because ye have known the Father. 14I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning (Even Jesus )! I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one (And Sin Not, Because the Word of God Lives in You!).

 15Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 17And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever! Ever man, woman, and child of the age of accountability; will have to face the wrath of God or be found a living vessel for the Word of God to Dwell in; His Repentance for them, Ac.11:15-18!

 18Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time (With many false Doctrines!). 19They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us (Because they taught man’s Philosophies, of man’s Psychologies, which do not appear to be as the word of God explains the world to us ought to be!): ( Anyone who has not the word of God living in them cannot have the correct Theology, let alone the correct Philosophy, and without the mind of Christ Jesus in you, how can one attempt to think or have a sound Psychology to govern their lives? They cannot they are only fooling themselves to Hell!)!

The World preaches a Prosperity Gospel of Materialism!

(Gal.1:8-9)

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.

 They preach this prosperity gospel; which Paul says is that other gospel (Gal.1:8-9) that must be accursed if we preach not the true gospel of contentment that is a great gain to us seen in 1 Tm.6:1Let as many servants as are under the yoke count their own masters worthy of all honour, that the name of God and his doctrine be not blasphemed! 2And they that have believing masters, let them not despise them, because they are brethren; but rather do them service, because they are faithful and beloved, partakers of the benefit. These things teach and exhort. 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 godliness4He 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!

We are just travelers passing through a strange land, which has a lot of misconceptions! There is only one way to God’s Kingdom and our mansions above talked about in Jn.14:1-2; we need to be working on our mansions from here where we are to be tried and tested, to see if we are truly worthy of God’s most High Honors! Everything we see around us today is temporal and only God has something for us eternal; if we abide in Jesus!

The Churches in the Book of Revelation!

 Is.4:1And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach!

The seven women here are the seven churches in the last days; they all want to have the only name that brings salvation to remove their shame! Although they do not want Him to feed them, or to give them their food, for they have their own and most assuredly they do not even need His righteous bridal gown; they will wear what they want to wear! That is the emerging church of today, as well my friends; they don’t want the pure food of cleanliness of God’s words living in them to clean them from their lusts of the flesh and immodesty, or the wine and the food of gluttony that is prevailent today as well, which is covetousness, which might as well be idolatry, as seen in those who are contentious! The people want God their way, the way that they can have their lusts and fantasies fulfilled and still be found in God’s divine grace! This is their idea of worshipping God! That is not being an overcomer of this world that lies in wickedness; as shown to us by the Apostle John yet again in 1 Jn.5:19And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness! The gulf between the two worlds is this much; 1 Jn.5:18We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not! That is the difference between the overcomers and they that are still in the world; who receive not these teachings; because it is not right to them! Nor can it be because they seek after the things of this world; which is about to pass away at any time! They have not found the true Love of God in them just yet; they cannot take their eyes off of themselves; they only seek after their own needs! They want to be the first, only those who want to serve others before themselves are the first into heaven because they thought of themselves as the last and only wanted good for their friends and even the ones they do not really even know; which most people call their enemies; but a child of the living God will not have one enemy! They will give away even their own lives to help another from perishing into the eternal pit of Hell; that is awaiting all sinners! We will never repay evil with evil or allow our sons and daughters to go to war and do this evil for our country that lives according to man’s laws and not God’s will! Who are we to listen to, God or man? We cannot speak but that which we have seen and believed upon (Ac.4:19-20)!

The churches of today want their organization to go the way they want it to go, whether it lines up with the word of God or not makes no difference to them as long as they get you tithing: Which supports their colleges, and their ministers who have been ordained by them, who go into their missions fields to start more churches to feed the animal that they have created; which is supposed to support the widows, the naked, the poor, the orphaned as well as other churches fighting the good fight of faith; doing the real work of God! We do not see that today do we my friends? They feed only themselves with their own doctrines while watching even our American Children go off to man’s wars against terrorism, which all could be done away with if man would just do what God told him to do! This is the disobedience that is leading this whole world straight to hell on the broad path, which many will enter thereat!

The only hope anyone will have is to repent and return to the words of our Great God before it is too late; the door is about to be closed; and all that are left out will not ever get to heaven because you have missed your golden opportunity, and Jesus will say what He told us He would say in His scriptures; even to Israel the children of God who disobeyed the true words of God; seen in the Old Testament as well! Look to Jer.4:11At that time shall it be said to this people and to Jerusalem, A dry wind of the high places in the wilderness toward the daughter of my people, not to fan, nor to cleanse, 12Even a full wind from those places shall come unto me: now also will I give sentence against them. 13Behold, he shall come up as clouds, and his chariots shall be as a whirlwind: his horses are swifter than eagles. Woe unto us! for we are spoiled. 14O Jerusalem, wash thine heart from wickedness, that thou mayest be saved. How long shall thy vain thoughts lodge within thee? 15For a voice declareth from Dan, and publisheth affliction from mount Ephraim. 16Make ye mention to the nations; behold, publish against Jerusalem, that watchers come from a far country, and give out their voice against the cities of Judah. 17As keepers of a field, are they against her round about; because she hath been rebellious against me, saith the LORD. 18Thy way and thy doings have procured these things unto thee; this is thy wickedness, because it is bitter, because it reacheth unto thine heart. 19My bowels, my bowels! I am pained at my very heart; my heart maketh a noise in me; I cannot hold my peace, because thou hast heard, O my soul, the sound of the trumpet, the alarm of war. 20Destruction upon destruction is cried; for the whole land is spoiled: suddenly are my tents spoiled, and my curtains in a moment. 21How long shall I see the standard, and hear the sound of the trumpet? 22For my people is foolish, they have not known me; they are sottish children, and they have none understanding: they are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge. 23I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had no light. 24I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly. 25I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled. 26I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the LORD, and by his fierce anger.

 27For thus hath the LORD said, The whole land shall be desolate; yet will I not make a full end. 28For this shall the earth mourn, and the heavens above be black; because I have spoken it, I have purposed it, and will not repent, neither will I turn back from it.

Jeremiah the weeping servant, the prophet of God; Ordained of God from his mother’s womb, to pronounce judgment on the whole earth, not just Israel, but all, who heeds not the words of God! All the way through the Prophets in the Holy Bible; the word of God and Truth we see judgment falling on a people who are called by God’s name, which is Israel, which means, I will strive with them! Meaning He will be in with and among His people, who are called by His name! Until their filthiness and ungodliness cannot be taken any longer and God pours out His wrath upon them who have gone away from the righteous path, to the right hand and to the left of it! The people of the world are doing the very same thing today as the Israelites did back then, and it will not go well with the nations of the world who have done the same things; that they have done in the past! These things were written for us for one reason so we could see the right way in which we the children of God are supposed to walk in! Jesus said, If they will do this in a green tree, what will become of you in the dry?

A farewell warning from Him who is to come and Judge the world!

Look to Lk.23:28But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children. 29For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck. 30Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us. 31For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?

Jesus was talking about the day after the windows of heaven are closed up and the blessings and forgiveness is taken away with all the true children of God, which is called the catching away! We are in the green time of life, where regeneration is still available to us in our repentance of our sins! A few short days from now we will see new things coming to pass like never before and at a very fast rate; even today the knowledge of man is increasing at astronomical rates of accomplishments and technologies, with men working and living in outer space. As well as space travel to distant planets and stars for observation; which is foolishness to God who would rather man to spend his money and time bring joy and prosperity to impoverished nations, building up God’s children around the world; instead of supplying bombs, bullets and war technologies for offensive and defensive weaponry! All the while we drain our natural resources that belong to our children for our own wealth and gains to the rich who just want more wealth so that they can be the richest man live; can they take it with them? It is guaranteed that we will leave this world as we came into it; with nothing more than what we came into with!

The days are coming when technologies will not even be able to keep up with the new viruses and diseases about to come on all mankind! Swine flues and epidemics, and pandemics are just everyday business as usual! If man will not live for God when it is green and plentiful; do you really think man will come to God after the door is shut? Those who preach you will have another chance to come to God after the rapture are liars seeking after your gain, looking to sell you another movie or book of their nonsense! My Jesus said after the door is closed they will stand outside crying and wailing just as the five virgins did in Mt.25:1Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. 2And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. 3They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: 4But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. 5While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. 6And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. 7Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. 8And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. 9But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. 10And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut! 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. 13Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh. This all the story we need to tell, but if this doesn’t do it for you, this one will: Mt.7:12Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets. 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.

15Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

 21Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

In Closing

Have You Done All That Is Required Of You;

To Be Able to Stand before Jesus: Who is a Consuming Fire?

Heb.12:29

     You cannot read the Holy Bible which is the word of God and not understand there is a day of reckoning coming and with the signs of the times we see it is not very far off and is even at the door! If not, you have been blinded by the adversary already! That is his job to confuse and dismay the world into believing it’s just another day in paradise! While the Bible tells us a different story, that this world is a time bomb; that will end in a fiery furnace of Hell, (2 Pt.3:1-18)! As God allows man’s own wrath on each other to grow and build until they extinguish all life on earth with their nuclear powers! No one will rest until they too have a bomb to threaten their neighbors with so they can get foreign aid just as North Korea is doing; as well as Iran!

The Far East and the Persian Gulf will not rest until they complete their Jihad against the infidels of the world who are not just like them; they cannot even get along among themselves any better that we can! There is not one church of the so called living God that will cross denominational lines to help another! This is where we are at in the end times of things to come! Rumors of wars all over the world; just as Jesus said it would be as told to us in Mt.24:1And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple. 2And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. Done in A. D. 70!

3And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? 4And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 5For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. Being done today in every land and nation!

6And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 8All these are the beginning of sorrows. We have been in the beginning of sorrows for some time now; as some suspect we started in pre tribulations in 2010; this was when I was called into service of our Lord Jesus Christ by Himself in a dream, Joel.2:28-ffs are being done today as well!

9Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. 10And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 11And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. 12And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. 13But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. This is where we are today, even today the Muslims and the Islamist are going about killing them who want to be believers of Jesus Christ for a witness!

14And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. This is happening today as well; we are preaching to each and everyone we can by internet, Face book, Twitter; and all else we can find to teach God’s words to whosoever will receive them; then the end will come and there will be a loud noise from heaven, with the shout of the Ark angle of God and His trump with this generation that has been redeemed be pulled out of the way for the wrath of God to come upon all flesh! Then these things will come to pass that is discussed below!

15When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) 16Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: 17Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take anything out of his house: 18Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. 19And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! 20But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: 21For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened. This will go on until the Lord comes after His Elect 1440,000 of His chosen few that are the remnant of God in Israel that have kept unto the Lord their God and have not taken the mark of the beast!

23Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. 24For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. 25Behold, I have told you before. Going on today as well!

26Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. 27For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 28For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together. 29Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: Then shall judgment on the earth come upon all men, and the dead will raise out of the ground and will be handed over to those who will take them to their rewards in Hell as foretold in Dan.12:1-2! To everlasting shame because the ones who were of God already have come back with Him and are present here with Him at this very time to give out judgment as seen in Rev.2:26And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: 27And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. 30And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

32Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: 33So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. 34Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. We are that very door today my friends!

35Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. 36But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. 37But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. That is what is going on today as well; people know something is about to happen but they are being deceived that what the Lord has shown us is very clearly at the door and is now ready to unfold before our very eyes and the world travels on as nothing of any importance is about to happen, because the rulers in high places and the Prince of Darkness are trying their best to keep everyone’s attention off of what the Lord has told us to be doing when He returns; and that is to take this gospel to all nations, to teach them to be disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ! To follow in the Doctrines of the Apostles of Jesus Christ, Jn.15:20!

40Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 41Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 42Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. 43But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. 44Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. 45Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? 46Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing! 47Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods! There were four seeds sown and only one seed came to grow and to full maturity, these will be the gentiles who have received the name of our Lord Jesus and have been found faithful unto the end, working in His harvest fields, bringing in the sheaves!

48But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; 49And shall begin to smite his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; 50The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, 51And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Will meet with their fate that has long foretold to come; they will go to live in the fires of Hell where their worm will never die and is forever hungry; all the while they have become the fuels for the fire that is never quenched! Seen in Eze.21: 31And I will pour out mine indignation upon thee, I will blow against thee in the fire of my wrath, and deliver thee into the hand of brutish men, and skilful to destroy. 32Thou shalt be for fuel to the fire; thy blood shall be in the midst of the land; thou shalt be no more remembered: for I the LORD have spoken it. And Eze.22: 31Therefore have I poured out mine indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath: their own way have I recompensed upon their heads, saith the Lord GOD.

This day is not far from us today; all I can say is repent and do the first works He gave us to do; or He will come and remove your candlestick from its place, Rev.2:5; for He will only spare those who are called by His name and have been found to have a pure heart in brotherly love, which is the fulfillment of all the law! For when you have done it to the least of these, you have done it unto me, Mt.25:40; you have done it unto God our LORD of lords and our KING of kings; who is the First and the Last and His glorious name is Jesus Christ who is LORD of ALL, Ac.2:36 and 10:36!
