A More Perfect Way!
Ac.18:26 Aquila and Priscilla had heard, they took him (Apollos) unto them, and expounded unto him the way of God more perfectly.
24And a certain Jew named Apollos, born at Alexandria, an eloquent man, and mighty in the scriptures, came to Ephesus.
25This man was instructed in the way of the Lord; and being fervent in the spirit, he spake and taught diligently the things of the Lord, knowing only the baptism of John.
26And he began to speak boldly in the synagogue: whom when Aquila and Priscilla had heard, they took him unto them, and expounded unto him the way of God more perfectly!
27And when he was disposed to pass into Achaia, the brethren wrote, exhorting the disciples to receive him: who, when he was come, helped them much which had believed through grace:
28For he mightily convinced the Jews, and that publicly, shewing by the scriptures that Jesus was Christ.
You are on your way also; to knowing what it is to be one with our God! For deeper understandings of who God is and what it is that He is looking for in us to be, (2 Pt.3:18): His servants who are worshipping in truth and in His Spirit, Jn.4:24; please feel free to write and study with me at GaryLordsWay@aol.com or at https://garylordsway.wordpress.com but in order to do this you must beware and realize that there will be a cost that you must pay, to be a disciple of Jesus Christ who purchased us with the price that no man can repay but with His own devotions and love to Him, who loved us enough to die for us, as we do the same for Him; this is what it means to be a servant of the most High God; Mk.8:34-38!
The price of learning a deeper understanding is high and you will be held to a greater accountability with knowledge comes belief, and with understanding in belief comes greater power in faith, with greater power in faith which only comes from understanding His mind, 1 Cor.2:1-16! In order to have His mind we must have had His repentance given to us at our Spiritual Baptism as Cornelius had with speaking in tongues, this was given for the evidences of His Spirit in you, and it was given to the Apostles in the upper room in Jerusalem on the day of Pentecost and it was also to be for evidences for us even today as well as we read 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. This was given to them of the council in Jerusalem for an answer from Peter to all of the Apostles who had heard that Peter had committed a sin by being with sinners and Gentiles of the uncircumcised! But when they had heard that Cornelius had received the same gift of God seen in Ac.11:15-18When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life.
They left Peter alone because they knew it was from God! That is the reason why Peter had Cornelius baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ because there is no name given by which we must be saved, Ac.4:12! This fulfills Mt.28:19-20 to teach the world of Jesus Christ as He alone is the one who forgives sins and all power is attached to that name alone, Jn.14:14; because Jesus is the Father, Jn.14:7-9 who is the I Am of the Old Testament Ex.3:14 as well as the New Testament see Jn.8:58 and 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. Jesus said I come in my Father’s name (Jn.5:43) because Jesus’ name means salvation and Jesus is the word of God made flesh, Jn.1:1-14 and it is up to us to receive His baptism as told by John the Baptist in the fire, Mt.3:11: With His fire, the cloven tongues of fire seen in the upper room in Ac.2:1-4 and they were all baptized with it as it sat on each of them (Ps.104:4 and Heb.1:7)!
This promise was given even to us by the Apostles of Jesus Christ who had the power to bind on earth and in heaven and to loosen on earth as well as in heaven; given to them by God who was with us, Mt.1:23 our Immanuel being interpreted; God with Us!
See Is 40:3 and see who John the Baptist was making and preparing a way for! It was Jesus who is God in the flesh, 1 Tm.3:16And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit (1 Cor.6:11), seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory. This is how we come to understand 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: (Baptized in the blood of Jesus Christ in the burial of water of death to self and the flesh!)
That is what Thomas learned as well in the locked room; Jesus appeared to them in, in Jn.20:28And Thomas answered and said unto him, My LORD and my God! If Jesus was not God in the flesh, He would have had to tell them right then and there; because God cannot be part of a lie or misunderstanding. Right Judgment that is Just is Righteousness and that is the word of God! God is Holiness, set apart from the world and is totally other in deity! God is a Spirit, Jn.4:24, Jesus ought to know being when you see Jesus you see the one who sent Him, Jn.12:45! The Holy Spirit is the only one who has a blaspheme clause attached to Him because He is God, Mt.12:31-32 because the Holy Spirit is God and is His will and His intelligence and is His almighty power as 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 shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing (Should be translated Holy One) which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God (the sure mercies given to King David (Pa.110:1) that his sons will be on the throne of Israel for forever more Is.49:26! God the Father is 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.
7If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him!
8Philip saith unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us.
9Jesus saith unto him: Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? He that hath seen me hath seen the Father! And how sayest thou then, Show us the Father?
10Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works! Because God is a Spirit, the Holy Spirit, and Jn.4:24; Ac.20:28; see also Ac.7:59 Stephan knew who was his God in Jesus ‘The Christ”; Ac.2:36 and Ac.10:36 who is LORD of ALL!
11Believe me that I AM in the Father, and the Father IN ME: or else believe me for the very works’ sake. If He dwells in us we will bear His fruits, with signs following them who believe and have faith, which is believing in action, Heb.11:6 (See James all of Chapter 2; faith without works is dead!)!
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 (Ecc.12:7, All flesh will without a doubt become immortal flesh and eternal flesh some glorified others will be re-accumulating horror in Hell, but most assuredly all flesh will submit to the one eternal Spirit, which is Holy; from which all spirits came and will once again be subject to, seen in 1 Cor.15:28; even Jesus’ Immortal body will always be in subjection to the Will of the Holy Spirit for which Jesus gets His direction, intelligence, and Power! Jesus is the lampstand which is the object from which light emits but its force and current comes from the power within Him, the Holy Spirit, which is God, Jn.4:24!). The true children of God who believe in His word will have been equipped for His service, with signs following, Jesus is the way the truth and the life we are to live, Jn14:6; Jn.8:31-32; 47 & 51!
13And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son (Son according to the flesh of King David’s lineage!).
14If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it! Ac.4:12, we had better do that (Baptism) in His name so that we will receive His remission of sin! Something goes in remission it stops what it was doing and that means sinning! This is the power of Jesus’ Spirit in you, with man this is impossible, but with God in you all things then become possible, Mt.19:26!
15If ye love me, keep my commandments. (Our Salvation is conditional! Jn.15:1-ffs! We have a hope and a promise, the only one who can mess it up; is us, by our disobedience to His every word, it takes all scripture living inside of us to come to God and be perfect as He said to be, Mt.5:48!)
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 Jesus is that same Spirit of truth and prophecy, Rev.19:10; Jn.14:18; which the world cannot receive because they know Him not and who He is and they too will die in their sin, Jn.8:24, because the world will not recognize Jesus as the I AM, see verse 58!!!); 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! Jesus explains all this in Jn.16:26At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you: They knew who Jesus really was!
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. Jesus is the right hand of God because God is now flesh and bone and is about to go be the Father once again as the Holy Spirit which is poured out on us at Pentecost (Jn.14:18)! Which is the Spirit of Jesus, who is the Holy Spirit manifested in the flesh, 1 Tm.3:16 and seen in Tit.2:10Not purloining, but shewing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things. 11For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, 12Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; 13Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; 14Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. 15These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.
This is the one true God seen in 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! (You must realize that there was no punctuation in the original Greek language or the Hebrew! If you think you are saved by faith and grace alone you are mistaken; see Tit.3:1; 3:8 and 3:14 it takes the work of God in us as we are bearing his fruits (Jn.15:1-ffs), Rev.22:12, and 21 speaks of works to be rewarded for, that is how we build our mansions down here up in heaven, that allows God to build or to show His grace, which is His love, benevolence, and Favour, in our lives down here so that we too help Him in building our mansions for us up there, Jn.14:1-2! God, rewards loving kindness and faithfulness to His Will and Word to us, but He will also chastise us when we are in a fault now so that we will not have to lose our souls in Hell for eternity or you are a bastard seen and talked about in Hebrew’s, 12:8!).
21Little children, keep yourselves from idols (False gods and false religions worshipping an imaginary made up god in their own imaginations which does not line up with scripture! 1 Jn.4:1 you must be able to try the spirits and know the good from the wrong by the Word of God, which is the Only Truth!). Amen!
We can make idols out of our religion and even worship a false god of our own vain imaginations! This is what Apostle John was talking about here! Many people make themselves an imaginary god they can serve in their religious services and life styles, that fit what their agendas are in this world, which lies in wickedness; which is not of our God in Jesus Christ, who calls us to be perfect (Mt.5:48) as He is perfect and Holy as He is Holy (1Pt.1:14-17!) and without righteousness that exceeds the Pharisees we will not enter into His Kingdom, Mt.5:17-20! Holiness and Righteousness is mandatory, to be His child, living in His words that cleanses us, Jn.15:3! The Holy Spirit sanctifies us and consecrates us to be a pure vessel for Him to dwell in (2 Tm.2:19-22 through verse 26! Working for Jesus in His harvest fields, spreading the gospel seed, and reaping the harvest, bringing the sheaves in! Allowing God to walk in us as the world sees the glory of God in our faces too! Or you too have already begun to be backslidden my friend!), 2 Cor.6:14-18!
Translation or Exegesis of God’s word to us, but how?
1 Jn.2:20 and 27 if you have the one who wrote it living in you, seen in 2 Pt.1:19-21, who is none other than Jesus seen in 1 Pt.1:9-11! How can you or anyone have the light of Day, which is a clear understanding of what God wants, without the Morning Star living in you (Rev.2:28 & Rev.22:16); who is the living word of God in you seen in Jer.31:31-34?
Unless we have the Holy Spirit in us we do not have the interpreter to translate scripture correctly because He had it written as we look to; 1 Pt.2:20Knowing 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.
Even Apostle Paul tell us the same thing in 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! A More Prefect Way!
See also 1 Pt.1:9Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls (Jn.5:39). 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 (Jn.5:39)!
This is the Spirit of Jesus seen in Zechariah, about 530 years before Jesus was pierced; spoken of by Him; Zech.12:10And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications (Jn.1:17): and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced: There is only one God and His name is One, Zech.14:9! Jesus is the First and the Last (Is.48:12) and besides Him there is no gods as seen in Isaiah chapters 44 and 45 and in Rev.1:8 and 11!
Just as Jesus said I have much to tell thee but it is not for ye now because you cannot receive it until the Holy Ghost comes upon you and will lead you into all truths! I must do the same with you now (Jn.16:12-15; Mt.28:18)!
Last one to show you that Jesus is the glory of God which He said He would not give to another; Is.42:8 and Is.48:11; now go to Jn.11:40 Jesus told her to just believe and she would see the glory of God! The Lepers came to Jesus and He healed them and only one came back to give glory to God! Paul told us if we wanted to see the glory of God we would see it in the face of Jesus, 2 Cor.4:6For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness Gen.1:3; Jn.8:12!), hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ! In which all the mysteries of the godhead are revealed to us in Jesus Christ, 1 Cor.1:24But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God!
Jesus is the light of the world, Gen.1:1-3 and is the Light unto the gentiles seen in Mt.4:16-17! Jesus is the Kingdom of God, Mt.12:28 and Lk.11:20 by the finger of God, Jesus did all these things! Jesus is the only Potentate living in the glory, the Shechinah glory, which no man can approach seen in 1 Tm.6:15Which in his times he shall shew, 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.
Jesus is the light of the world; that lies in wickedness; that walks in darkness; 1 Jn.5:19 & 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. Jesus is seen in 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 (Reference to the Holy Spirit!): The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace! Jesus our God! 1 Tm.3:16And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit (1 Cor.6:11we too must be justified in the Holy Spirit or we are none of His yet still, Ro.8:9!), seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory! The only glory that is to come to our God, which cannot be given to another, Is.42:8 and 48:11!
That is the only reason the apostles baptized in Jesus’ name only; because all power is attached to that one name (Mt.28;18; Jn.14:14; and Col.3:17 for those who believe in His name, Jn.3:16-18 which has all power attached to that one name of God, Jn.5:43 Jesus comes in His Father’s own name and you will not receive Him either as your God, Mt.1:23, who is with us still today by the indwelling Holy Spirit, Jn.14:18!) which is the manifestation of God’s name in the flesh (Jn.1:14) seen in Jn.17:3; Jn.5:43! Jesus is the name of the Father which means Salvation see Jn.5:39; Is 49:26 and all flesh shall know that I the LORD am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob (Is.9:6 the (ALL) MIGHTY God!)! Mt.3:17And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, “IN WHOM I AM”, well pleased (“to be that”, is what I Am means in Hebrew; it means that He will be whatever He will be!)! The voice from heaven was the voice of the Spirit of God which is in Jesus Christ and is told to all right here, “In Him I Am”, well pleased, Mt.3:17 and again in Mt.17:5! The sign of the dove (In Mt.3:16) was for confirmation to John the Baptist for his own confirmation that this indeed was the Messiah (And was symbolical for the rest and peace that will come upon mankind through the Holy Spirit seen in Is.28:9-12. Or you will end up as those in verse 13!)!
Jesus had no sin and was in no need for baptism; Jesus was revealing what it was going to take for us to follow Him, in word and indeed, Jn.14:6; Col.3:17! Jesus was tying together the last Old Testament prophet of God (John the Baptist), to the New Testament so that all righteousness could be fulfilled (Jn.10:35), which is the unbroken word of God as seen in Mt.5:17-20; Mt.24:35; and Jn.10:35If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came and the scripture cannot be broken; Only those who receive this word are the children of God Jn.8:47! Why? Look to these verses Jn.8:31Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; 32And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free (Free as a Dove of eternal Peace which comes from God’s own Spirit in you!). Jn.8:51Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death (works of Obedience!). Because we know who Jesus is and we will not 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. Jn.8:58Jesus said unto them: Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I AM (Ex.3:14)! Jesus told them exactly who He was and they started looking for stones because their eyes were blinded so all prophecy could be fulfilled, that was ever written about who? Our God who by which all salvation comes: the only one who knows the end from the beginning; who opens His mouth and History is forever changed and molded to conform to His Will; Who alone opens and no man can shut or who shuts and no one can open; 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 (Ac.20:28 and Jn.20:28!). Mt.4:4 and Lk.4:4 and are (His Words), our eternal life to us, when we abide in His word to us, every one of them, Jn.15:1-ffs; 2 Tm.3:16-17! This is what Jesus was telling his soon to be Ordained Apostles in verse 16 of Jn.15; but just yet they were still just disciples prior to that verse!
Jesus is the only one who ordains Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Preachers and Teachers, not man; Jesus does it by His indwelling Spirit in us to equip us for our callings, not some seminary! They will be taught of God Jn.6:45; Is.54:13; Jer.31:31-34! Holy men are taught by God’s own Spirit in them, leading them into all truths not man’s truths 1 Jn.2:20, 24, and verse 27! But you have to be buried in His name (In a watery grave, one that is death to self and the flesh!) and baptized with the Holy Spirit as seen in the book of Ac.2:1-4; 8:16-17 and 10:1-48 and Ac.19:1-7 this is how we receive the same baptism the Apostles received as shown in Ac.11:15-18 which is the repentance of God, is in His gift of everlasting life to us, by His own Spirit in us; “IF” we abide in his word that cleanses us, Jn.15:3, In A More Perfect Way!
Failure to do these things is equal to disobedience to His given word (which is His Will) to us for our Salvation; we must be in compliance to His given Word to us, so that we then can then have a true relationship with Him who is Pure and Holy, 1 Pt.1:14As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance (1 Jn.2:14-17 ffs.): 15But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation (Meaning Conduct; A More Perfect Way!); 16Because it is written, Be ye holy; FOR “I AM HOLY”! 17And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man’s work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear (Fear is the beginning of wisdom, to know our God is a consuming fire, Heb.12:19 and a fire we all must all pass through, 1 Cor.3:10-17, which is to be purified as gold and silver is refined, Jn.16:33! Who can stand in His presence unless they are pure of heart, Mt.5:8? 2 Tm.2:19-22 ffs.): 18Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation (Manner of life, works of religion!) received by tradition from your fathers; 19But with the precious blood of Christ (Ac.20:28 the blood of God!), as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
(Just like His children seen in 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; only when the word of God is alive in your heart and you are walking in the Holy Spirit which is the fulfillment of all the law, Ro.8:1-ffs to Ro.12:1-2 to 21 in the love of God, which is a more excellent way (1 Cor.12:31) seen in 1 Cor.13:1-13!):
20Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, 21Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God! (1 Tm.3:16 that became flesh for our Salvation, Jn.5:39 ffs!). 22Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:
23Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever, Mt.24:35 and Mt.5:17-18 ffs to Mt.5:48 A More Perfect Way!
Jn.3:3-8 You must be born-again of water and of His Holy Spirit which also brings with it gifts according to our faith! See 1 Cor.12:1-ffs to chapter 14 talks about the gifts of the Spirit and chapter 8 in Romans talks about praying in the Holy Spirit that makes intercessory prayer for us, with moaning which are not understandable to man but God only! In order to have the mind of Jesus Christ in us we have to be in Him by the indwelling Spirit of God in us, 1 Cor.2:1-16! Then and only then can we attempt to know, what thus sayeth the Lord in His scriptures to us by His words for us! That is what Paul was teaching Timothy in 2 Tm.2:15 For in these last days there will come people with twitching ears wanting to hear fables and wives tells instead of sound doctrine, 2 Tm.4:1-ffs!
I too have much more to tell you my son, but you have to seek God His way, not my way, not some preacher’s way, and most assuredly not some Priests way! It has to be done by those who had the keys to heaven given to them by the Lord Jesus Christ by which I too have been baptized into His Spirit, which is His word to us which brings us eternal life, Jn.6:63! So attached to this Bible study is a Holy Book the Lord gave to me to write for all who will receive it. See Mk.8:34-38 and 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 (And the Gospel’s sake, Mk.8:35!) shall find it.
40He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me (Jn.12:45). 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.
Therefore Heed the Lord’s Prophet and abide in the word of our Lord God or perish with the rest of them who think they are saved by faith and grace alone! The only way to appear before our Lord is to be without spot, without wrinkle and to be blameless (Eph.5:27)! With man this is impossible; but with God’s Holy Spirit in us all things then become possible for His children who receive His words (Jn.8:51) and Keep them (Mt.19:26; Mt.21:21-22; Jer.31:31-34!), Jn.14:15 OR you will end up as these, hearing these very words from Him; Lk.6:46! We must bear fruits worthy of repentances; Ac.26:19-20! See Titus chapter three; and James chapter 2, we must have works according to our faith or it is just belief and belief saves no one (Jms.2:19); (Heb.11:6 it takes belief in action, that is then real faith that Works!), even the devils (But it should read demons as the Greek original says!) believe in ONE God and tremble; then you might as well too, if you are still in the world, you are an enemy of God, Jms.4:4! Not all men believe in just one God as in Zech.14:9! They believe some Roman Catholic dogma about something they call a holy trinity which is tritheism of worshipping multiple personalities or entities! When clearly the Holy word of God says, “I am the First and the Last” Rev.1:8 & 11 from Is.48:12! Ac.20:28 the Holy Spirit became man and God was begotten in Jn.1:18 in some Greek manuscripts which is in the bosom of the Father because Jesus came out of God who is omnipresent and so is Jesus 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! Jn.5:62What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up: where he was before? Jn.16:26At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you: 27For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.28I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: AGAIN, I leave the world, and go to the Father; see Jn.10:30!
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 shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords; 16Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light (Holy Spirit’s very source God, Gal.3:20!) which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting: (Jn.6:46! only Jesus can reveal the Father to you! See Mt.11:27!). Amen and Amen! You see that which is Spirit is spirit and that which is flesh is flesh, Jn.3:6 and only that which has become man can become a living soul, when the breath of life comes to him and is self-supportive and can live and function on its own accord, in a natural way, Gen.2:7! Not some metaphysical philosophical term of man’s vain imagination! God had to robe Himself in flesh and supply us with a righteous blood, a Pure blood, the Blood of God seen in Ac.20:28, which can cover the sins of the whole world, must be only God’s blood, that could provide the supernatural cleansing that only God’s eyes, which sees all, cannot see the sin of our mankind’s apostasies; which we have all done since the fall of Adam! Only god’s blood of a More Perfect Way could cover a multitude of sins to this magnitude; but there still lies one sin that is yet still unforgiveable and even in scripture we are not to pray for repentance or forgiveness of it either to them who bear this sin (It is the sin of being Presumptuous in your own will, in disobedience to God’s word, which is His Will, Mt.12:31-32!), seen in 1 Jn.5:16, which is seen here as well, Mt.12:31-32. Only when one repents and turns their life over to God and His Word and Ways, which is His Will can we then know salvation, and eternal peace, from which comes His Operation, Order, and A More perfect Way! All we can hope for is salvation, no one is saved until they hear Jesus say “Well done My good and Faithful Servant! You have been faithful with a few things now I will make you ruler over many things!”
God became man and walked among us, Mt.1:23: Who is our Emmanuel and Immanuel in Isaiah’s verse seen in Is.7:14: Who is God with us! Who robed Himself in flesh and gave the flesh away to take up an immortal body to be glorified as only God can be glorified which is due only Him! Every time you hear that Jesus sits at or on the right hand of God, it is a euphemism for sitting in all power and authority (Mt.28:18); (A Spirit doesn’t have hands or need them, Jn.4:24!); Just as Joseph did for the Pharaoh in Egypt during the famine! God is a Spirit, Jn.4:24 and Jesus should know; beings it is His own Spirit that leads Him to walk in the way of God, which is God’s word to us (Mt.4:4) and His will (even Jesus said not My will be done but thy will be done, as His flesh was submissive unto the Holy Spirit’s leading Him (Seen in Mt. chapter 4), 1 Cor.15:28, the flesh even immortal flesh will always be submissive to the Holy Spirit or anyone who does not will end up as Satan! Bound for eternity in Hell’s eternal fire, where the worm dieth not and the fire is never quenched! Forever Tormented!), for us or we are in our will which is eternal death of the flesh in Hell! Ro.8:1-ffs; Mt.12:31-32 see 46-50 also! Even when Jesus was just 12 years old He knew He must be about His Father’s business! (Who was the Father of Jesus? the Holy Spirit which is God, Lk.1:35; Mt.1:18; 20!) So must we be about His business too, which is obedience to His every word!!! We must have a clear understanding about who our God is and what it means to be in the Spirit as seen in Ro.8:1-ffs; Ro.12:1-2 ffs, or we are in the flesh and it will be consumed in the fires of Hell, (Gal.5:17For 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.)! We must mortify this flesh that wars against the Holy Spirit, 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 (1 Cor.10:21-22!). 18But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
Here is another mystery; Jesus said that there is but two commandments that we must keep to fulfill all the law and that is seen in 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 LORD! 30And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. 31And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. 32And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he: 33And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices! 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!
You see Paul knew who Jesus really is and Paul said that when we love our neighbors as ourselves we are in fact loving our brothers as ourselves as Jesus said; but Jesus also said to love God with all thy heart, mind, soul, spirit and strength! We do that when we love our brother now that God has become flesh, 1 Tm.3:16, we are in fact fulfilling all scripture when we have done that to the least of these; we have done it unto God in Jesus, who is now also our brother: (Mt.25:40!); just as when we cloth the naked, feed the hungry, and help the widows and the orphaned and show that we have a perfect Way which is Perfect in His eyes, Jms.1:27Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world!
Who has purified his own heart in a pure love for God and His gospel which is His word to us! That is when God’s grace (Favour, His Living Word, living in you!) comes down on us as His favour to us who are His servants and saints (ἁγίοις, hagiois meaning Holy Ones! Consecrated Ones! Set Apart for God’s use!); Lk.17:7-10!
We have done our duty, 2 Tm.2:19-26 and 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; even your own, that are of ignorance! For the sin of Ignorance is the only forgivable sin, seen in Numbers Chapter 15! We are all grafted into that same vine, we will have only one law between the Jew and the Gentile who dwells with them! Therefore Love covereth a multitude of sins! For only true Love of God can keep someone from sinning in the first place because we would never want to bring shame upon us or our LORD’s Church, 1 Cor.15:57But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 58Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
1 Pt.4:8And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins! Because judgment start in the house of God first (With us!); 12Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:1 Pt.4:13But 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 (Or be found as a presumptuous sinner!). 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 (with the Rapture!), what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? 18And if the righteous scarcely be saved (the Pure at heart, who walk in a more perfect way!), 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, as unto a faithful Creator! Who rewards every man for his works, Rev.22:12!
With all this said and let the one God in us, let us now, all of us speak as an the oracles 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 (dia: through, on account of, because of; the work of) Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion forever and ever. Amen. Using the gifts of the Spirit that was given to us at Baptism of His supernatural Spirit in us, with signs following (1 Cor.1:1-8!), see this in the another chapter and book as well; 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 (Phil.2:10). 6For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead (We are all dead according to our sins, but now we live not unto ourselves any longer but unto the one who purchased our souls from Hell; if we keep to His words that cleanses us, Jn.15:3!), that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit (Which cannot be done unless we are of the regeneration seen in Tit.3:5!). 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! You see how it brings new meaning to these scriptures when brought in another order, just reversed? The answer to that mystery is shown here in these verses:
Is28:9Whom shall he teach knowledge? And whom shall he make to understand doctrine? Them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts (Matured full grown who know “A More perfect Way!). 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 (Evidences of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit!). 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 (To all those who say this is not for us any longer, comes this verse from Jesus, Lk.18:7-8! Will He find faith in us who preach His gifting is not for us any longer? No! Because they contradict these verses right here Heb.11:6 Mt.6:33; Mt.7:7-8!).
These are the ones who gladly received the words but fall away from God, when the cares of this world were laid back upon them, they had no roots deep in the soil to sustain them, they had not the root of God’s Holy Spirit strengthening them with divine sap that nourishes the vine, that we have been grafted into too! This is the rest that they would not receive because some minister told them it was not for them today which is contrary to scripture, as we look to Ac.2:38-39, it says this, 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! Are you called? You are if you are still reading this and looking for His truths diligently, see Heb.11:6! It takes faith in His word to be in a right relationship with God because it is impossible to please Him any other way! Below are the ones who fall away and are become backslidden! All because they had not the Holy Spirit in them to give them the testimonies of Jesus Christ in them because Jesus is the Spirit of Prophecy which also means testimony seen in Rev.19:10! 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! The words of God are forever life, unto life for those who receive them and His messenger which are a flame of fire, Ps.104:4 and Heb.1:7! Or they are the words of death unto death to those who receive them not!
That is the reason I said you must be careful for what you ask for when receiving the word of God from one of His Prophets or Apostles! If you abide not in His words which are in fact, the word of God being enlightened unto you; then it is up to you to carry them out! As our Lord Jesus requires even of us His servants in the faith; for this reason Jesus said this in Lk.18:1And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint; 2Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man: 3And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary. 4And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man; 5Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me. 6And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith.
7And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? 8I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? He won’t unless we start preaching these things are for us as it was for them in the day the Lord visited men; we are still in the same dispensation of God’s grace! God changes Not, Mal.3:6 and Heb.13:8! He is not a man that will repent, 1 Samuel chapter 15!
I have much, much, more to share with you or anyone who really wants to receive what thus sayeth the Lord our God to us! This has been my gifting, given to me directly from Jesus Christ Himself; He told me He would tell me the truth of the thing and the heart of the matter in the mysteries of His word! It has been given to me to reveal to whosoever will receive it! His ways are not our ways: 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.
In these last days we are seeing a famine, not for food or water; it is for the word of God living in His children who say they are His and yet are not bearing His fruits and are to walk in His words of truth, Lk.6:46, why do they call out Lord, Lord, and do not walk in His light for them? 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 Mt.20:16; and 22:14 as well!). 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 (Works). Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles (Do they tell us that the Holy Scripture is not for us today as well as it was for the Apostles?)? 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!
The end of time message I’m getting right now is this one, Rev.2:5 and Rev.22:14-21 and Hag.1:5-7: Thus sayeth the Lord: Consider your ways!

Was written first on Feb.30, and then opened up the next morning to finish and I have found it already done with an ending already attached to it from another sermon, which was done just a few days earlier with another title. I left it as I found it, for it is of the Lord Jesus, and to Him belongs all the glory and praise! By Rev. G. L. Boyett
