It isn’t about a building it’s about a Walk with God!

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 indeed 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! 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.

We need Donations for the Widows, Orphaned, Naked, Sick and Poor; Church Building Fund for Accra and Kumasi, Ghana, and all of Africa: And (Brother Davies at “The Shekinah Glory Assembly” is just one of the few we all must help!): For Bibles and church furniture: Under Construction. The foundation is in, most the brick walls are up on outside, still needed a few hundred more bricks, some more bags of concrete and few 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 (make sure and label your offering for what area of operations) and to the people it is intended to help! Lord’s Way Ministries is going to support these efforts, in any way we can; all your help will be directly routed to Accra, and Kumasi just to name a few in Ghana, Africa as well as around the world, even in India, Israel, Asia, and Pakistan; thank you for your support.

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! And those who heed not the word of God are these:41Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: 42For I was an hungered, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 43I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. 44Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee a hungered, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? 45Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. 46And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

 

Matt 7:1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.

I went into my normal barbershop last week.  However, I did something different. I went to a different barber.  I tend to go to the same one(s) to ensure some sort of consistency.  The barber I went to on this day was far from the “normal” barbers I use.  She had more tattoos and earrings than I could count.  Not only that, her hair was colored differently throughout with several loud colors.  I’ve seen her before and she struck me as being a little snobby.  Well, I need to confess.  I misJUDGEd her.

She asked me, “What are you reading?”  I was surprised.  I thought she was going to simply cut my hair and go about her way. That wasn’t the case.  She said, “I see you a lot and you’re always reading.”  Yes, another shock.  I told her I was reading Charles Darwin’sOrigin of Species.  I explained that it’s difficult to agree or refute something that I don’t know about.  Plus, how can I advise our congregation unless I’m willing to look at opposing views?  Lastly, I can now learn how to talk to an evolutionist and show them what we believe as creationist. That got her attention. However, she was uncertain of the difference between evolution and creation. She had an idea but simply wasn’t certain. She opened up and we talked like we were old friends.  We talked about her struggles and successes as a single mother.  She had a lot, I mean a lot, of questions about living a Christian life.  It was one of the most fulfilling conversations that I’ve had in a long time.

Why did I write this post?  Good question. We don’t know who is looking at us. We don’t know who is waiting to hear the word of God.  Opportunities are waiting for us to take them by the horns.  My thoughts about this woman were way off.  The shame is mine.  Not hers.  I didn’t think that I would judge someone. She taught me that I still have a lot to learn.  Yet she also allowed me to be able to share with her, and everyone in listening range, the word of God.

I guess this is the point where I defend myself and convince you that I wasn’t “judging” but merely making an “observation”.  Well, that’s not going to happen.  Lets keep it simple.  Please be better than me.  Don’t judge. I’ve provided you an excellent example of how not to act.  It would have been regrettable if I’d have lost a great opportunity to share Christ and encourage another Christian!  God called us to share His word and His love.  He’s the only righteous One.  He’s the only Judge.

Live like Christ….He’s our standard!

My Responce

 Our Job is to make disciples of all nations, who obey the word of God.

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.

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. We all must walk as Jesus has shown us or fall from our path to the right hand or the left, Deu.5:31-32 and seen in Josh.1:7 as well as in Prov.4:27, when we lose sight of our Lord’s direction we have just stumbled into our will of man’s foolishness and wisdom, which are not even close to our Lord’s ways which are so much higher than we. We are to learn from our mistakes so as not to repeat them as we continue to fulfill scripture in our lives as we too grow in the knowledge of Jesus Christ as seen in 2 Pt.3:18; or we too will never get to fulfilling 1 Cor.1:1-16 in having the mind of Christ in us, unless we allow His Spirit to lead us into His Truths, that is how we fulfill Jn.3:8, by being allowed to be blown where the Lord needs us to go to witness His goodness for Him to others, for that is our job to make disciples of all nations, teaching them the only way to salvation is by Jesus, or we too will die in our sins just as those who do not believe in Him and do not put His Truths to practice in their lives, Jn.8:24, He is the only Way, the only Truth and the Only Life we must live to be with Him forevermore.

Jn.14:6, no one can come to the Father unless Jesus reveals the Father to us, 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. Each of us will be judged by how much revelation they have received, it is up to Jesus to do the revealing and it is up to us to do the searching, Mt.6:33 and Mt.7:7-8, but with this said, the Lord knows who are His and who will purge themselves as seen in 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. Only those who heart is pure will see God, Mt.5:8, and unless we show them how to seek the Lord by our examples as we too immolate Jesus as Paul has told us as he did himself in 1 Cor.11:1-2 in love of our brothers no matter who they are we too will fall short of our goals, as seen in 1 Cor.13:1-13; 13And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

When we have done that we have fulfilled all the law, when we have given our lives reaching the lost, feeding the poor, clothing the naked, taking care of widows and the orphaned, we then have followed Jesus in word and in deed, Col.3:17, that is how we can be found in His will, and be abiding in Him as His words abide in us, only then can we be seen as one of 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. A chosen vessel of Gold; that has been tried in God’s furnace called life, 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.

Otherwise we will not be found as one of the overcomers seen in Revelation Chapter 2 and chapter 3, who have the right to sit down at the Lord’s Table and be served by Him. Unless we open our doors to Him in our lives, with our lives in service to Him who gave His all for us as we do the same for Him in return for His forgiveness and His repentance for what He was about to do to us for our sins, seen in Ac.11:15-18, with the baptism as Cornelius received as well as all the Apostles had received as well. This is what Jesus was talking about in Jn.3:3-8 as well as Paul in Col.2:1-ffs for we are complete in Jesus alone all by Himself, for He is the fullness of the Godhead, in the flesh because he is our God with us, Mt.1:23, as foretold in Is.7:14 our Immanuel, who was prepared a way for by John the Baptist as seen 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. Which John the Baptist did, as Paul well knew too or he would never have written 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.

We are told to discern the spirits, 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. We are to prove all things as well, 1 Thes.5:21Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. As well as 22Abstain from all appearance of evil. We see that those who do not conform to the Lord’s teachings are walking just as all those who are in the world, and they will not appear to be being led by the Holy Spirit, and if we are in the world we have made ourselves His enemy, for4 not being in His will, which is the written word of God given to us for this reason so that we can have the mind of Christ in us; but if we chose by our own will to walk as those in the world it is not us that judgeth them it is the word of God, Jms.4:1From whence come wars and fighting’s 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. Even the prayer of the unrighteous is an abomination as seen in Pr.15:8The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD: but the prayer of the upright is his delight. And Pr.28:9He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination. When we understand that when we preach and teach this word of God to all people we are also either giving a death sentence to those who turn their backs not on us but on the teachings of the word of God, who cannot lie, which I might add changes not, mal.3:6 and Heb.13:8; or an eternal life reprieve from a trip to Hell. It is not us that is doing the judging but the word of God as to who’s will is it that we will conform our lives to Jesus’ or our own. Only when we treat others as we would have them treat us and we walk in the will of God can we be found as a true seeker of God in Jesus Christ, who has become one of the reconciled, seen in 2 Cor.5:19-21, and without Holiness and Righteousness (Mt.5:20 and Heb.12:14), no man will see the Lord! The only way to have holiness is separation from the world, which lies in wickedness, 1 Jn.5:19, and the only righteousness any man can have is when He abides in Jesus and Jesus’ words abide in us because it is His words that will cleans us (Jn.15:30 from all wrong when we obey him in word and in deed, 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. This is what true repentance is all about seen in Mt.4:17; Ac.2:38-40 and as Paul witnessed to after his conversion, as he witnessed to King Agrippa 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.

Which is seen 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! Mt.5:48Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. Just as Abraham was instructed in Gen.17:1, ands as Job was found as well as Noah, we too must be found as they, because God changes not, from Old Testament to the New we see scripture cannot be broken, Jn.10:35, it all must be obeyed or we have fallen short of His glory, which we are to represent as the Glory of God was in the face of Jesus, so it must be in our faces as well, if we are to be seen as the true children of God. For sin toucheth them not, 1 Jn.5:16If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it.17All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death. 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! The forgivable sin seen here is just as it was in the Old Testament the sin of Ignorance, seen in Num.15: but the sin of presumptuous sin will never be forgiven in this life time or the next, and all who do not obey the word given to us in this Holy Bible are the lost who are forgivable, if it is done in ignorance, but once given the opportunity to respond to the word of God, the more difficult it will be for them to convert over to Christianity.

That is the reason Jesus has warned us repeatedly in His scriptures, such as 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! Lk.6:46And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say? All who walk as they want and preach all that they want to follow, and leave some of the scriptures left undone will be seen as one of these in Mt.7:15Beware 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. All because they didn’t do these two scriptures seen in Deu.4:2 and 12:32; Josh.1:7 as well as Rv.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.

This is hard preaching, this is meat and potatoes preaching and no one will get any different from me because Jesus said this, Jn.8:51Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death. And they who don’t will see Eternal Death in Hell which was meant for all those who defy God and His words to them, because His words to us in this Holy Bible are His will for us, every one of them, which then become our law to us, because it is the will of the Holy Spirit, which purchased us with His own blood, the blood of God, 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 grace of God to us is His words to us so we can know Him and what it is that He expects of us, 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! The gospel of Grace is how one is to be redeemed, and regenerated seen in Tit.3:5 as well as those who Jesus said would sit on the twelve thrones judging the tribes of Israel, and there are twelve more that will be with them from the Old Testament as well, because if we will obey Jesus’ words to us we should have obeyed the Ordained Apostles of Jesus Christ as well, 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. Because they too knew Jesus had the words to eternal life, 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.68Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? Thou hast the words of eternal life! Only when we live them in our lives can we be seen as one of the Elect, and few that there will be; 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.

Here is the reason why; man can believe all day long in God and in His words, but it is not till man puts His beliefs into practice do they become actual faith that works, because it is the will of God in us who is actually doing the works as Jesus said in his case as well, Jn.14:14 and Jn.14:7If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him. 8Philip saith unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us. 9Jesus saith unto him: Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? He that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father? 10Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works (The Holy Spirit, God the Father is the Holy Spirit, Jn.4:24!, Rv.4:8, Lev.11:44-45, 1 Pt.1:13-19; Is.40:3; Is.9:6; 1 Tm.3:16!). 11Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake. 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.

If we do not have the Spirit of God in us, we do not have the spirit of Jesus Christ either, for they are one in the same (Jn.10:30; 12:45) Ro.8:8So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. 9But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit (the word of God is Spirit (Jn.1:1-14) and Grace (Jn.1:17), Ac.20:32And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace,), 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! So we see here without the word of God in us we have none of His grace that is his favour, through obedience, to His will, Mt.12:30He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad. We abide in His word and His word abide in us, or we too help scatter the sheep for the adversary (Ro.6:16Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?).

 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! Here is why, 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 (Who is that but the Morning Star, which will be given to those who are His children, Rv.2:28 and Rv.22:16, Which is Jesus Christ, seen in 1 Pt.1:9-11!): 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 the power and wisdom of God in Jesus Christ, 1 Cor.1:24; and the power of the Highest, Lk.1:35! Who is the Highest but our God who is a Spirit seen in Jn.4:24 as instructed by Jesus who ought to know being He is God in the flesh, 1 Tm.3:16 our Immanuel, Is.7:14 and Mt.1:23, seen in Is.40:3 and Mt.3:17, when God said In Him I Am, well pleased! Jesus is the I Am of the New Testament, seen in Jn.8:58 and if we do not know Him as such we to will die in our sin, Jn.8:24!

Sin of Disobedience

 The same sin that caused God to throw Adam and Eve out of the garden and the Israelites being  rebuked and thrown out of the Promised land, will be our downfall as well, disobedience to God’s word to us! God demands obedience and nothing will come in His presence and stay there unless it has been tried and found of a pure heart (Heb.12:29), and is without spot, or wrinkle, and to be perfectly without blemish, as He is, Eph.5:26That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, 27That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be Holy and without Blemish! That is what be ye holy as He is Holy is all about, that is why the Apostles told us to come out from among this untoward generation, Ac.2:40 and to keep unto all their doctrines; not man’s teachings that come after the LORD’s Ordained Apostles; who were sent for that one reason, to loosen on earth and to bind on earth, and that which will be required in heaven as well. St John sealed the Holy Bible at Rv.22:18-19 and we too cannot go about changing anything to suit us and our will, in these end times of the Latter Day Rain! It still is God’s way to salvation and no other way is there, and I do not care whose Pope you believe! Jesus gave the Keys to His Apostles; and His anointed True Apostles, know better than to add one word to this document, and most of all to require every word of it in our lives as well! If they preach any other gospel, they are a cursed four times over and more, Gal.1:8-9 etc. We do not and never will get to pick and choose our scriptures for our salvation, Jn.3:3-8 and Eph.4:4-5, show us it must be done His way, for it is His Repentance and Forgiveness we are seeking and Only he knows what it will take to be found pure of heart, because it is He that sees to the very heart of every man, woman, and child. He alone knows us before we were born and He alone we will all go to in our return, Ecc.12:7Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

Those found in obedience to His word will be seen in these scriptures as well, Ecc.12:9And moreover, because the preacher was wise, he still taught the people knowledge; yea, he gave good heed, and sought out, and set in order many proverbs. 10The preacher sought to find out acceptable words: and that which was written was upright, even words of truth. 11The words of the wise are as goads, and as nails fastened by the masters of assemblies, which are given from one shepherd (Jn.10:1-ffs). 12And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh. 13Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. 14For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil. As well as 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.

Can Two Walk Together Unless They Agree, Amos3:3?

Our Lord God is the same yesterday, today and forevermore, Heb.13:8!

Receive ye the word of the Lord or perish, just as one who believes not, for they who are not of God are of the world and will be seen as they who are of the world that lies in wickedness, 1 Jn.5:19 and will be an enemy of God, Jms.4:4. God’s Word will not and never will come back void from which it was sent out to do, Mt.5:17-20; Mt.24:35; 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. 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.

Or you end up as one of these, Jer.7:19Do they provoke me to anger? Saith the LORD: do they not provoke themselves to the confusion of their own faces? 20Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, mine anger and my fury shall be poured out upon this place, upon man, and upon beast, and upon the trees of the field, and upon the fruit of the ground; and it shall burn, and shall not be quenched. 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.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!

Man is without excuses no longer is man without knowledge, it has all been laid out for him in plain English language, for anyone who can read and comprehend, therefore Repent and do the first works as required by our Great God, the Almighty Jesus Christ, Rev.2:5 or He will come and remove your candlestick too! The door is about to close for eternity, and those who are left out will be out for eternity, according to the word of Jesus Christ or you have the wrong interpretations of scriptures, for five of the virgins were left out and not allowed in after the door was closed, and so will everyone else who doesn’t put on the wedding garment of Righteousness and Holiness, they too will be cast out into outer Darkness and there will be gnashing of Teeth!

If we would judge ourselves against the word of God and suffer His words to be our words too, we will be redeemed and not be judged with the 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? 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.

Let us all be found judging ourselves against the only words that have eternal life attached to them by the word of God; How well do we stack up to them in our lives, therefore judge not one another, keep thine eye to self and remove your own spec so that it will not grow into a beam, being well watered by your tears, while being cast out into the fires of Hell where the worm dieth not and you are the food for him and the fuel for the fire that is never quenched!

Seek God while He may be found; for very soon this privilege will be taken away from all the world, who walk in their own ways!

WISDOM WITHOUT UNDERSTANDING IS HAVING NO KNOWLEDGE AT ALL!

 

WISDOM WITHOUT UNDERSTANDING IS HAVING NO KNOWLEDGE AT ALL!

 This is my answer, in more than 250 words, to this comment:

The killing will probably increase, people are getting meaner around the world as resources and water decrease and the general population refuse to slow down and stop having children. Starvation is the result and a welcome one if the Earth is expected to survive.
My Bible says it is on its way out; that is the Earth as we know it, soon all will be a blaze, as the Lord will repay mankind with its own deeds 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.
Very Soon now all who are still standing in the gap will be removed, and then the world wil be all yours, to do with what you want. I suggest you read 2 Pt.3:1-18 to see how this world ends up!

That’s a little extreme son. Let’s not forget the Bible was written by men not God and the things men say tend to change over time especially the interpretation of another person’s thoughts. That was an answer to my comment here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/04/14/environmental-advocates-killed_n_5148325.html

About Environmental activist who are killed trying to protect God’s earth that is predetermined according to the Holy Bible to be wasted by man in man’s wickedness, that God will repay with man’s own devices as seen in scripture, 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 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. Jer.7:19Do they provoke me to anger? Saith the LORD: do they not provoke themselves to the confusion of their own faces? 20Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, mine anger and my fury shall be poured out upon this place, upon man, and upon beast, and upon the trees of the field, and upon the fruit of the ground; and it shall burn, and shall not be quenched.

Very soon not too far in the future God will pull all the Holy and Righteous men and women out of the way of His wrath and they, the whole world will know His fury, as foretold in the Holy Word of God seen in His writings such as 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. All because mankind did not do this last verse seen here in 2 Peter; 18But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever. Amen. And they mankind will die in there sin because they didn’t know the One True God seen in 1 Jn.5:20, (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!), that Jesus warned us about in Jn.8:24I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.

To my answer below:

I think you need to understand, that you maybe need a fresh anointing of the Spirit who had the Holy Bible written, It was written by men as you say but they were Holy men, that is what makes all the difference in the world here as seen in 2 Pt.1:20-21 who were inspired by the Day Star (verse 19 here…), which should have been Capitalized if translated correctly because it was the Title of our Lord Almighty, who also was also given Titles as seen in Is.9:6 as well as Is.7:14 carried over and used in Mt.1:23 as our Immanuel, who is our God with us as seen in Rv.2:28 Where Jesus is saying He will give the overcomers of this world, those separated from the world in Holiness Ac.2:38-40 and who do everything in word and in deed in Jesus’ name only, Col.3:17, because Jesus is God in the flesh, 1 Tm.3:16, reconciling the whole world unto Himself as seen in 2 Cor.5:19-21 in order for Holy men to be seen as Righteous men that exceeds that of the scribes as required in Mt.5:20, that we can be perfect in Jesus as required in Mt.5:48; a people who is without spot, wrinkle or blemish as required in Eph.5:27: Seen in 2 Pt.1:19-21; which is seen in 1 Pt.1:9-11, which is the Spirit of Jesus Christ, our Immanuel, God with us (Is.7:14 and Mt.1:23), and by the way, these mere men you spoke of were in fact ordained by our God with us in Jn.15:16 and if we will obey Jesus’ words we will obey there’s too, Jn.15:20; 1 Cor.11:1-2.

With that said anyone who wants to pick and choose which scriptures they want to keep and perhaps throw out because they don’t fit your life style are they who are contentious; and contentious people will not be in heaven, do a word study on this term and those who are a shame in the eyes of our Lord God. For shame look to Dan.12:1-2; Rv.22:18-19, Deu.4:2! The Bible study is a continuous one, every time you read it through, if you are lucky enough to be endowed with the Spirit who wrote while using holy men of Old and of the New Testament, we should be able to glean new revelation from His words to us as we grow in knowledge of Jesus Christ who it to be our LORD of ALL, seen in Ac.10:36 and 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.

The most problems men have today is that they never receive a calling because they do not really know the One True God in Jesus and have not been Ordained From Him Only! They went to some man’s theological seminary and learned the Dogma of the World’s teaching, which is foolishness to the God that was, and is, and is to come, the One True God Jesus Christ and if we do not know Him as Both LORD and the CHRIST seen in Ac.2:38 who is LORD of ALL, Ac.10:36; We 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. All because we do not know Him as the True I Am of the Old Testament as well as the New Testament, as 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: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by. Why because Jesus just revealed Himself to be our God in the flesh as foretold in scripture, 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 fulfilment of every name God has ever had in the flesh, 1 Tm.3:16And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory. The glory of God that would not and never be given to another but God Almighty will retain for Himself, Is.42:8I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images. Is.48:11For mine own sake, even for mine own sake, will I do it: for how should my name be polluted? And I will not give my glory unto another. The same glory that was given to God at Jesus’ feet by the Leper; Lk.17:11And 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, 16And fell down on his face at his 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!

The same glory Jesus showed us in Jn.11:40Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God? The glory that none could have but God with us, Mt.1:23! Jesus who was given the Spirit without measure because God is Omni-everything! Jn.4:24God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. The only way to worship God in Spirit and in His Truths is to know that they crucified the LORD of all Glory 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. When we receive the true Spirit of God we too then will have His mind, not the mind of this world’s teachings, see the remaining verses here in 1 Cor.2:9But 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, because the fullness of God is in Jesus, the Spirit without measure, who is the Father in Jesus who doeth the works, Jn.14: 6Jesus saith unto him, I AM the (Only) Way, (I Am) the (Only) Truth, and (I AM) the (Only) Life (That we are to know and believe in, Col.3:17): no man cometh unto the Father, but by ME; Because they are one in the same, Jn.10:30I and my Father are one. And when you have seen Jesus you have seen God, Jn.12:45And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me. Because there is no Salvation outside of Jesus Christ, Jn.5:39Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. All the world will perish if they do not know Jesus is the glory of God with man and if we do not give glory to Jesus we are not giving God His glory He deserves as Jesus said in the remaining verses here; 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 (Which means Salvation our only redeemer and mighty one of Jacob seen in Is.49:26, who by the way is the Olive Tree we are to be grafted into Paul talked about in his Epistles; Ro.11:11I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy. 12Now if the fall of them be the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fullness? 13For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office: 14If by any means I may provoke to emulation them which are my flesh, and might save some of them. 15For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead? 16For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches. 17And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert grafted in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree; 18Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee. 19Thou wilt say then: The branches were broken off, that I might be grafted in. 20Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not high-minded, but fear: 21For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee. 22Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off. 23 And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be grafted in: for God is able to graft them in again. 24For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree? 25For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in. 26And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: 27For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins. 28As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the father’s sakes. 29For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. 30For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief: 31Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy. 32For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all. 33O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! 34For who hath known the mind of the Lord? Or who hath been his counsellor? 35Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again? 36For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory forever. Which will be accomplished at the return of our God Jesus Christ, Amen! And Jesus said: 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?

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

8Philip saith unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us.

9Jesus saith unto him: Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? He that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father?

10Believest thou not that I AM in the Father, and the Father in Me (Clearly showing us the Father is none other than the Holy Spirit seen in Ac.20:28 as well! Who doeth all the Works and is the works done by the Word, which is Spiritual LIFE to us, Jn.6:63 who believe Jesus is God with us and who can believe He is God in the Flesh, God Incarnate, 1 Tm.3:16 and Jn.1:18 who is the begotten God in many manuscripts, who is in the bosom of the Father who is omnipresent as seen in Jn.3:13 as the Son of man is; who has come to us as He did before as we notice in jn.16:27-18 where Jesus uses the word Again here! The words that I (Jesus) speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works! (The Holy Spirit is the Father by which Jesus was conceived, Mt.1:20 and Lk.1:35 the Power of the Highest because there is no other but God who is spirit as told to us by Jesus who ought to know, Jn.4:24!

11Believe me that I AM in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake.

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 (See 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 shew 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. The Father revealed in Jesus so they apostles clearly understood Jesus to say He is the Father in the Flesh, that originated in the Spirit, being God is the Only one Holy and we are called to be holy as He is Holy making God the Holy Spirit, from Which Jesus had come from being manifested in the seed of Mary, who is the daughter of the King of the Israelites, the ancestor of the Adopted Son of God King David as seen in 2 Sam.7:1-16!

 

13And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son (Flesh of God so that God will give Him the glory that only belongs to God! When we glorify God with our bodies he will inhabit them and bring glory to us, through Him being in us as he was in Jesus’ flesh, which is the seed of Mary, the handmaiden of God, Lk.1:38!).

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

15If ye love me, keep MY commandments; because the words Jesus speak are not His own but God’s words in Him because the Holy Bible was written by Holy Men as they were carried along in the Holy Spirit, who gave them the words of who? Of God in them, seen in 2 P.t1:20-21 who is the Day Star in verse 19: See Rv.22:16 who is the Morning Star!

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 was standing with them and dwelling with them then while being in the flesh!), and shall be in you! (And here is who it is that came back to them who was with them after the resurrection, the unspeakable joy that none would be able to take away from them, for they knew who God was in Jesus reconciling the world unto Himself seen in 2 Cor.5:19-21! 18I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you! And be in them as shown in Jn.17:1These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:

2As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.

3And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

4I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.

5And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.

6I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.

7Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.

8For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.

 9I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. (Those who know who Jesus is because he has revealed Himself to them who are His as seen 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!)

10And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them, (Col.3:17).

11And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me that they may be one, as we are. (Not all three of us are one!)

12While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.

13And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.

 14I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

15I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.

 16They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

 17Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. How is one to worship in truth if they know not who God is? They cannot they worship a god of their own imagination, unless they worship the One True God Jesus Christ, 1 Jn.5:20 or you will be seen in the next verse worshipping idols, all three of them called the Trinity!

18As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.

19And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth (The Word of God made flesh, Jn.1:1-14! Because the Word is Spirit, the Holy Spirit who is God, the one and only True God made flesh, 1 Tm.3:16, seen in Is.9:6! Who was prepared a way for by John the Baptist, Mt.3:3 as foretold by Isaiah 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! Is that not what happened in Mt.3: 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.).

 20Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; 21That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. 22And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: 23I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me. They who know the One True God in Jesus Christ, who shed His blood the blood of God, for us who know Him 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. Who call upon God as Stephen did in Ac.7:59And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.

24Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.

 25O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee (and if they do not they to will die in their sin, Jn.8:24!): but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me (because Jesus has revealed Himself to the Apostles and to all His Disciples who know who Jesus really is, Mt.11:27!).

26And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them! Jn.14:18, forevermore! When you have seen Jesus you have seen the One True invisible God and the glory of God in the face of Jesus, 2 Cor.4:6For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. If they had known that they would have never crucified the Lord of all glory, 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. Unless we know that; Christ cannot be our all in all, Col.3:10And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him: 11Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.

From Genesis 1:1 to Revelation 22:21 we have one running theme in this whole word of God and that is to bring unity of God’s Kingdom back unto Him, by Him and Through Him alone, not by god number1, god number 2, or god number 3; whether you call them persons it matters not to me, I know my God said I have no god besides Me, Is.44:6Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God. 7And who, as I, shall call, and shall declare it, and set it in order for me, since I appointed the ancient people? and the things that are coming, and shall come, let them shew unto them. 8Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it? ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? Yea, there is no God; I know not any.

Only those who make imaginary gods of persons of characteristics of God’s nature with meta-philosophies of propositions from faulty prepositions, by starting from the heathens and pagans of the early philosophers to begin with!  Unless your theology, doctrine, teachings, can line up with all scripture and be true you have the wrong interpretation, and unless the Holy Spirit who wrote the Holy Bible by Holy men being carried along by Him, you have been listening to the wrong interpreter!

Is.45:5I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me: 6That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else. Not much has changed has it, mankind still is clueless to who Jesus really is, but when they see him High and Lifted up in all His Glory, they will surely know that Jesus is the One True God who was, and is, and is to come, seen in Rv.1:8I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty (Is.9:6 is that not Jesus?). Rv.1:14His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; See Gen.49:8Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise: thy hand shall be in the neck of thine enemies; thy father’s children shall bow down before thee. 9Judah is a lion’s whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up? 10The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be. 11Binding his foal unto the vine, and his ass’s colt unto the choice vine; he washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes: 12His eyes shall be red with wine, and his teeth white with milk. Is this not God our Lord and Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob, Is.49:26? Sure it is! Rv.1:16And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp two edged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.

17And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: (Is.48:

18I AM he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I AM alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death. Ex.3:14 there is only one I AM! We or Us or Our (were not the angels present with God when He spoke, yes they are always with Him saying Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who too were also made in His image, being ministering spirits, who were manifested and made long before man was fashioned out of the dirt of the ground! Were not these they of the countless numbers of the mighty host, who the lord was speaking too in the third person plural; beings there is not God besides Him?), do not make an I and never will! Is.45:11Thus saith the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me. 12I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, even my hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded. 13I have raised him up in righteousness, and I will direct all his ways: he shall build my city, and he shall let go my captives, not for price nor reward, saith the LORD of hosts. 14Thus saith the LORD, The labour of Egypt, and merchandise of Ethiopia and of the Sabeans, men of stature, shall come over unto thee, and they shall be thine: they shall come after thee; in chains they shall come over, and they shall fall down unto thee, they shall make supplication unto thee, saying, Surely God is in thee; and there is none else, there is no God. 15Verily thou art a God that hidest thyself, O God of Israel, the Saviour. 16They shall be ashamed, and also confounded, all of them: they shall go to confusion together that are makers of idols. 17But Israel shall be saved in the LORD with an everlasting salvation: ye shall not be ashamed nor confounded world without end. 18For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else.

This is what the Apostles taught us 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. Without this knowledge we cannot be the righteousness of God in Jesus without this understanding, without truth in knowledge, there can never be Righteousness that is required for us to be in His Kingdom; 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. Mt.4:17From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. Do not look for the Kingdom of God here or there for it will be with you and in you: Lk.17:20And 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.

If we have the true Holy Spirit which is God, he would reveal Himself to us, by His own spirit leading us into His Truths, just as who said, was it not Jesus? Who said he would reveal the Father to us 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. So why is it not many people know that Jesus is God in the flesh as scriptures have plainly told us, as seen in 1 Tm.3:16 and 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 which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting! Amen!

Jesus has already told us why; in 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. (Love of God and of our brothers around the world has waxed cold and even lukewarm and are about to be spewed out of His mouth!): 13Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in there at: 14Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Jesus is that Gate we all must inter into or the Father will never come inside of us, unless we are pure, Mt.5:8 and 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. No one can have a pure heart unless they know who Jesus is and have received God’s Repentance, 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. Which is the baptism of His Holy Spirit in you, as seen 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.

Who have received the justification of the Name of God, Ac.4:12, which is Jesus Christ, for there is no other name given by which salvation comes! Only when you have been sealed in the name of God and His Spirit is in you with evidences of supernatural gifts following by confirmation (1 Thes.5:21Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.), can we be found justified in Spirit and in his Truths, 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. Only then can you actually be His Temple when HE resides in you; 17But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit (not three or do the persons of the trinity not have their own spirits?). 19What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? 20For ye are bought with a price (Ac.20:28): therefore glorify God (Who is supposed to be) in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s. Otherwise you will never be one with Him as these are; 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 (The world who knows not God in Jesus Christ!), 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!

Can two walk together in harmony unless they know one another and agree, Amos3:3? For this reason few that there will be who will be with Jesus at His wedding feast, because not everyone will put on the wedding garment, which is Righteousness and Holiness that is required to be in His Kingdom and for His Spirit to dwell in His Temples, for God will not dwell in an unholy vessel or a heart that is not pure! That is the reason we see these verses here; Mt.7:15Beware 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.

Those verses were written for so called holy men who teach and preach the word of God incorrectly and will be found being tested as one of these, 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. That is why James said this in Jms.3:1My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation. 2For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body.

Mt.20:6So 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! All because they would not listen to the words of God, which were spoken by God who was with us, Mt.1:23, who gave us the words of eternal life, Jn.6:63 and verse 68! Seen in Mt.24:35Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. All because man sought not the ways fog do which are higher than man’s, 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.

If man would have done what it says in the Holy Bible man would have been received and all things would then be added unto him, if man would have sought God in His Righteousness, Mt.6:33, but this can only be done through Repentance and works worthy of Repentance, which is seen in the Word of God as was told to Paul, because that is what Paul was told to preach, Ac.26:19-20! When God is living in men, that man will go and sin no more as commanded by Jesus in Jn.8:11 and in Jn.5:14, or a worse thing will come upon you too!

Only when we are found in obedience to God’s words to us can we be found in Truth and Cleaned by His word, Jn.15:3! Unless we are clean, without sin, and found perfect can we be in True Fellowship with God! 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. Because when Jesus comes for His own, we will be as he is, while on this earth: 1 Jn.4:17Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the Day of Judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world!

Only can one do this when they actually know who Jesus is or they will die in their 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! Just as Jesus told His Jewish brothers in Jn.8: 58Jesus said unto them: Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I AM! What was the next thing they tried to do? They picked up stones to throw at Jesus, who made Himself equal to God, who would do that but God in the flesh? Or God would have made sure Jesus would have been killed right then and there; if Jesus were not God! So Repent come to know the One True God in Jesus, redeeming the whole world unto Himself, just as scripture says, and not man’s Dogma, based on philosophical propositions, built on faulty axioms called a trinity! Jesus said if we ask the Father for the Holy Spirit He would give us Him, 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? If we are not with Jesus we are not helping Him and are actually helping to scatter, only when we abide in Him and we walk in His words to us can we be found faithful because we put or faith in His words to us in practical everyday use in our lives, this is faith which works! This is what Jesus is looking for in us as well as in these verses here from Luke as well; Lk.11:23He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth not with me scattereth. 24When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out. 25And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished. 26Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. 27And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him: Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked. 28But he (Jesus) said: Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it! The word of who? Yes Jesus said the word of God, who was then bringing the words of God to the Jews who worship One God, I suggest we start doing the same beings we are to be grafted into that Olive Tree! We are the wild olive branches Paul talked about being grafted into the Natural Olive Tree of the Israelites, who received the ordinances of God, and the promise of redemption by circumcision, which is a blood covenant between two people and Jesus is the mediator, but God is still one, Gal.3:20Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one. Just as seen in Zech.14:9And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one. If Jesus said He is the I Am, then Jesus has shown all who He is in His person, the One True God; that was before Abraham, just like He said!

Only the church of Philadelphia will be taken out of the way so it will not have to be in the trials and tribulations of the times of Jacobs woes, as well as the whole world, who will be tried, this is foretold to us in Rv.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 (The only name by which salvation comes, the name of Jesus, Ac.4:12 and all those who have kept His name in word and in deed, Col.3:17, will be those who are sealed in His name by which all prayer is answered, Jn.14:14, because all power and wisdom is attached to that one name, 1 Cor.1:24; they are those who have been found baptized in Jesus’ name who have fulfilled these verse here in Jn.3:3-18 and Ac.2:38-40; who have come out from among this untoward generation as told to do by God’s Ordained Apostles! This is abiding in Jesus and Him abiding in you, that id the only hope of bearing His fruits or you will be cut off and thrown into the burn pile and become fuel for the Eternal Fire, where the worm dieth not and the Fire is never quenched!)! 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 (By vain philosophies of men’s teachings, warned to us in Col.2:1-ffs!). 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 is one to overcome unless they are in Jesus and Jesus in them? You cannot have Jesus unless you take His name by which all authority has been given to that one name, Mt.28:18; only when we understand Jesus is our god with us just as scriptures say can we see the invisible God manifested in Jesus, Col.1:9For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding (1 Cor.1:24, the power and the wisdom of God in Jesus Christ!); 10That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God (2 Pt.3:18)11Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness; 12Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints (The Same word that is used for Holy is used for Saints of God!) in light: 13Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son (who is God incarnate, 1 Tm.3:16!): 14In whom we have redemption through his blood (Ac.20:28; see Jn.20:28, if Jesus were not God Jesus would have had to straighten out what Thomas had just said if it were not true! God cannot be part of a lie, Tit.1:2; Heb.6:17-18!), even the forgiveness of sins: 15Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature16For by him (Jesus) were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17And he is before all things, and by him all things consist! The almighty God is all sufficient to adequately accomplish all that He needed to do all by himself without help of some man made trinity of helpers. There is by one god we have our Salvation and that is from the blood of the Holy Spirit made flesh 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. Who is the Father by operation of the power and wisdom resting in the seed of Mary the daughter of King David, the adopted Son of God, seen in 2 Sam.7:1-16, who was given the throne of Israel for forevermore! How was this going to get accomplished unless God became man, and KING of kings and LORD of lords, this cannot be done unless God became God-Man! Beings God is the Holy Spirit and has no blood to give, He had to allow Himself to be robed in the flesh, and took upon Himself the role of a servant, who would give Himself for all humanity, only the blood of God could redeem the sins of all flesh from Adam to the last one saved, who He puts His Spirit in them, which are then sealed for His redemption!

We cannot be redeemed if we grieve the Spirit and walk in our will, which is contrary to the will of the Holy Spirit, Mt.12:31-32! We violate the will of God which is His wisdom for us, which is given to us in His word, therefore those who violate his word cannot be in His will, they are in their own will and that is the unforgivable sin in any age! Jn.8:51Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death. With man this is impossible, that is the reason why the disciples asked Jesus, will many be saved? Mt.19:25When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved? 26But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible (only when man receives God’s Repentance for him can that man be saved as well as forgiven, Ac.11:15-18!). 27Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore? 28And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. 29And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life. 30But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first. Only when we learn to obey Jesus’ words and live as Jesus has shown us in His lifetime can we then be as Jesus and be a true follower of Jesus in Spirit and in Truth as required in scripture, Jn.4:23-24! That  is when we learn how to put this flesh down and live according to the Spirit leading us into the rest that is for each of us who have known the Lord and who have His mind, 1 Cor.2:1-16! Only then can you be one with Him in full agreement; and few that there will be, that will know the One True God, who is God all by Himself, who knows no gods besides Him! This Jesus Christ our God with us! The one who was and is and is to come, the judge of the quick and the dead, Phil.2:10, therefore work out your own salvation Phil.2:12, with fear and trembling, for that is the beginning of wisdom and understanding!

Written in the Last Days, 4/18/2014

A Million dollar Question:

A Million dollar Question:

WILL MANKIND EVER WAKE UP IN TIME, TO WHAT IS COMING?

Jer.7: 20Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, mine anger and my fury shall be poured out upon this place, upon man, and upon beast, and upon the trees of the field, and upon the fruit of the ground; and it shall burn, and shall not be quenched!

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.

 

 

Today in these End of Days; we see mankind stumbling along blindly as usual in its filth and wickedness; and they (those of the World’s Economies and Ways!) do not even care that they have lost their way. It is standard operating procedure for them, full steam ahead, as this Titanic which they are operating, is about to crash into the Tribulations at full steam and at full speed! The True Blind eyes leading the blind followers holding onto the rope of complacency! The world is falling apart at the seams and no one even cares as long as their lifestyles aren’t messed with! As long as they get their food and gorge themselves with a steady diet of ignorance and they are continually feed with escapism by the world’s publishers of man’s teachings and the Doctrines of fools, they will continue to work for a dollar that is worthless, in eternal matters!

I see here everyone missing the true point in our situations with the world becoming a filthy mess, because the Bible says the world lies in wickedness, 1 Jn.5:19! These problems of ours in this world are not going away, and they will only get worse because there is a bigger plan in action here; ever since sin has entered into this world! Men and mankind in general, will keep being men of sin, until or unless they have been regenerated as seen in scripture (Mt.4:17; Ac.2:38-40; Ac.26:19-20, and Tit.3:5-ffs!), as even Jesus said in Mt.19:28And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel: That those who are His Ordained and Anointed Apostles, will sit on thrones in judgment of these men of sin. So which side are you going to be sitting on? Those who abide in Jesus Christ and His words to us or man’s teaching, as seen in Prov.14:12There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death; and Prov.16:25There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

Man has always been born with a death sentence hanging over his head and it is time we all wake up to the real reality that our bodies are temporal. Our souls are Eternal, and we must ask ourselves this question; where is it going to spend its eternity? Those who serve sin will serve the one they are serving here in this life time, who is Satan because that is the god they serve now; Ro.6:16Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? The children of the world cannot hear Jesus’ words to them as seen here as well: Jn.8:42Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. 43Why do ye not understand my speech? Even because ye cannot hear my word. 44Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. 45And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. 46Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? 47He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.

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. James explains this to all of us with half a brain! We cannot drink of the cup of this world (1 Cor.10:21) and expect to walk into God’s graces just because we say we believe a few words out of the Bible: Devils believe and fear the one true God, Jms.2:19Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils (should read Demons) also believe, and tremble: why doesn’t mankind? The short answer is there is no wisdom and no understanding! All of mankind’s continual destroying of itself and everything in the world, has been falling into place, just as the Holy Bible said it would all thorough out history, with remarkable accuracy, where the probabilities are astronomical, of being prophesied and coming true, but yet still today it is all still running quite smoothly along as the world continues on its path to its final destruction! And yet mankind keeps stumbling on blindly, just as Jesus said the Blind guides leading the blind to the pits of Hell. It’s time man wakes up and seeks higher ground in this flood that is about to come upon all mankind; called the wrath of God, Jer.7:20Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, mine anger and my fury shall be poured out upon this place, upon man, and upon beast, and upon the trees of the field, and upon the fruit of the ground; and it shall burn, and shall not be quenched.

Is this not the End of Days?

Joel.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.

But yet the destruction of man continues along steadily, unhindered!

 

We will see more and more of this for one reason only; The Love of Money! The root of all Evil; 1 Tm.6:3If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness; 4He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings, 5Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself. 6But godliness with contentment is great gain. 7For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. 8And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. 9But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. 10For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. 11But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness. 12Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life: when are we going to start doing that? If we are going to have Eternal Life, we have to start living in the word of God; so God’s words can live in us; 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. (see Is.9:6, who is our Immanuel, Is.7:14 as seen in Mt.1:23! See is.40:3, which was fulfilled in Matthew chapter 3, by John the Baptist, who prepared a way for God!)

Man in his humanity, walks around as if he is his own boss and care taker, he doesn’t even realize he has already been purchased with a price he can only repay by cashing in his soul, to the very one who has redeemed it from Hell in the first place, as seen here in 1 Cor.6:19What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? 20For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s (Ecc.12:7 and 9-14).

Now the mistake everyone has trying to interpret these scriptures as seen here is that they mistakenly think they have already been redeemed, just because some preacher has told them so because they followed what that preacher said to do; when in all actuality he never really even had the keys to heaven given to him in the first place! Which is the true baptism of the Holy Spirit; as required in Scripture, not by man’s teachings and dogma! We must abide in Jesus before He can abide in us, Mt.4:17! 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! All because Jesus is the dwelling place of the Father in Him! Which was told to us two times in Matthew alone; Mt.3:17 and 17:5, God’s own voice was heard to say, “In Him I Am, well pleased!” God is more than well pleased to dwell in Jesus Christ, who is both LORD and the CHRIST, Ac.2:36 and who is LORD of ALL in Ac.10:36!

If we truly loved God as required by scripture, we would be more than happy to follow all His commandments, sayings, teachings, precepts, judgments, statements, and words of wisdom for our eternal souls! Which he holds in the palm of His hands! God’s Kingdom is already set in place and is well functional and only those few who will be found in the Lambs book of life are they who obey His every word to them given to us in the Holy Bibles, 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! So much for saved by faith and grace alone; and this one I love; once saved always saved, what rubbish; the thoughts of men’s wisdom! The only eternal wisdom is the actual words of God because they are the only words which will be forever, Mt.24:35Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away! So who’s wisdom is going to last here? It isn’t going to be man’s wisdom that lies (lies works both ways here) in his own understanding! Unless God opens our eyes to His truths we are still in darkness of wickedness, that is and always has been bound to mankind since Adam and Eve’s first indiscretion, called disobedience to the Lord’s every word. Man has had that problem ever since, he is listening to the prince of this world; whose job it is to distract, lie, kill, steal, and destroy! That’s all he is good at and he very good at his job because he was going to be the best at it or God would not have given it to him! This is free-will’s job!

Freewill cannot function unless there is a choice to be given!

Ro.6: 11Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

12Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.

13Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.

14For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.

15What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.

16Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?

17But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.

18Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.

 

These words speak of those who are and were dead in their sins as we all are, unfortunately we still have a world of people who do not believe that they are in need of salvation because they feel they are without sin! To these philosophers of the world there is no sin because to some of them there are no gods not even the one Lord of All Jesus Christ, to whom every knee will bow, according to them! Man’s wisdom shining through the ages, they all believed in at least one God and the pagans and some heathens had many gods. Many if not all cultures in history have always had at least one god, and many have had many gods in theirs! Unless we know who the one true God is we will die in our sins, and unless we know that this one true God is Jesus Christ, as God Almighty, we too will die in our sins, Jn.8:24! Unless we know this as a fact in our hearts, our hearts cannot be seen as pure in His eyes, Mt.5:8! Only those who have a pure heart will actually be God’s servants, 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.

These will be seen doing Jesus’ works as well when we abide in Him and His words abide in His servants (Jn.13:34-35; the Key to this is seen in the previous verses (Jn.13:19-20): When we glorify God in us, He will glorify us with Himself in us, (Jn.13:31-32)!). They that are the Lord’s children will be seen doing what Jesus said to be doing when He returns (Lk.12:31-40), such as some of these things here: From 2 Tm.2 again; 23But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes. 24And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, 25In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; 26And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will. Just as these, 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!

I will show us all what a shame in the eyes of our Lord is, by His terminology! 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. There are only two kinds of people in all the world, the ones headed for hell! While the others are headed for the feast of the Groom’s bride, who has made herself ready, Eph.5:26That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, (Jn.15:3, when we abide in his word and His words abide in our lives in service to our LORD of lords and KING of kings, this Jesus, called the Son of man, Mt.28:18!), 27That he might present it to himself (Sanctified, and Consecrated for His use, a Holy vessel, Lev.11:44-45 and 1 Pt.1:1-25!) a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish!

Holy and without Blemish!

Mt.5:48Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

With man this is impossible, due to sin entering into the world, through Adam and Eve! The only way to be seen and found to be perfect in God’s eyes is to be just that, perfect according to His standards, not man’s ways which lead to death and eternal damnation! Only can we be found in God’s eyes as cleansed from our filth; is when we are found in obedience to His every word to us! With man this is impossible, unless mankind becomes regenerated back into His likeness, just as Adam was at the first! That state was without sin, to be innocent of all wrong; perfect!

 

 

The perfect State is to be without sin!

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 God told Cain 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! Which Cain did not do; he could have but he chose not too; he did what all mankind is doing right now in this present day, just whatever he wants to do! Most of mankind doesn’t even care about what the Lord of the Universe says, does, or thinks! Only those who have found His words not grievous to them will be seen as the few who have sought out what it means to be His creatures (Ecc.12:10-14; Mal.3:16-18), whom He alone has created in His likeness (who will return to Him, Ecc.12:7)! These, the regenerated ones, by His grace to us, which is His words to us; so we can know Him, His mind, and His will for us; will be those who have asked for this all important and miraculous gift; 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?

Only those who know that there is something out here in the Universe that was created by something much bigger than they, can go and look for answers, that can never be found; unless shown where and from who to go looking to, who has all the answers! Jn.6:43Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves. 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. 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 (why because He is God, the teacher in these very verses!)! Jesus is the Truth and Grace of God in the flesh of man’s humanity, born from a willing vessel, the handmaiden of the Lord our God; who had never known a man, a virgin! Who then became the most blessed woman on earth besides Eve; whom by all of us have for our mother in Eve! No man is an island, he is joined to every race, creed, color, and nationality! The whole world is full of their own brothers and sisters; and yet we go about exterminating those who disagree with us and our agendas; we are enslaving the poor whom we made poor to begin with; with our classes of segregation! We make our philosophies to be made law, in which only they who have made a decision to enjoin themselves to their way of thinking; so they too can become one of them who dictate how the world is supposed to think! By rewarding those with a higher pay scale and better opportunities, so that it will continue to support the wisdom of man which is all driven by the greed and lusts of the flesh and the corporal lusts of the eyes of all the world that lies in wickedness, 1 Jn.5:19! Which is foolishness to God: 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.

Only those few who will see that this is the way to deaths door, will be those who will seek a more enlightened path that is not bound on any material gains, for this world is about to pass away, in the fiery wrath of God; as foretold in His Holy Word to us called this Holy Bible for that reason; it is the words of God to us so we can know what is about to happen so we too can prepare a right way in which we should go!

A more Perfect Way

Ac.18:26And 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!

Apollos knew Jesus was the Messiah that was written about in the Old Testament because the New Testament was still being written by the Apostles and Disciples of Jesus Christ! Who had been baptized into the Mind of God, and who were cleansed by His words to them 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 (In Hell’s Fire, where the worm dieth not and the fire is never quenched, Eze.21:31-32!)!

This is what the planet’s end of days job really is, to purify sin out of existence, which is disobedience to God’s will, which is His words to us, 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, and neither in the world to come! Who I might add has purchased us with His own blood the blood of God seen in Ac.20:26Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men. 27For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God! 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] (The Holy Ghost) hath purchased with [HIS] own blood (1 Tm.3:16)!

Without the knowledge of who God is we cannot fulfill all scripture, such as this one, Jn.4:23But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in Spirit and in Truth (Jn.1:17): for the Father seeketh such to worship HIM. 24God is a Spirit (The Father!): and they that worship HIM must worship HIM IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH!

Unless we know that God is the Holy Spirit which became flesh, we do not know the One True God in Jesus Christ, 1 Tm.3:16And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit (See 1 Cor.6:11), seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory. 2 Cor.2:19To wit (To Know), 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. Unless we teach this ONE TRUE GOD IN JESUS, we do not know or understand anything of God or His operations, and we will die in our sins; if we do not know who the I Am is, Ex.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. This is the I Am Jesus has revealed to us who know God; Jn.8:58Jesus said unto them: Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I AM! This is the One True God St. John was showing us 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 (Jn.1:17 Grace and Truth, the begotten God in many manuscripts, seen in verse 18, which is the word that became flesh, Jn.1:1-14!), and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ: This is the true God, and eternal life!

Anyone who doesn’t understand this; is because they are being blinded by man’s teachings once again, and are in fact being warned in the very next verse, as to what that would be meaning; 1 Jn.5:21Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen. Worshipping an imaginary god that the world has made up to worship, as they are doing now today as well, even in some cases three persons of in one god, which is nothing more than Tritheism, there is no way to change the meaning of three without rewriting the definition to the number three as equaling 1; (3 unless you multiply it times 0 and then can we see truly what it equals 0 nothing, the answer is clear to any rational thinking person, which is of flesh and blood who is a real person, with an eternal soul, should be defined as a person should be, Jn.3:6, because that which is spirit is spirit and that which is flesh is flesh, only when life has entered into flesh has that become a living soul, which is a true Person, not the spirit which is totally Other as in the Holy Spirit, from which all spirits will return, which is God who has caused them to exist in the first place! Only when we bring the Eternal Spirit or LIFE back to our souls as seen in Jn.1:12-13 can we then be in complete union with our Lord’s Spirit as seen in Ecc.12:7!)!

To understand who Jesus is, is to have, “A More Perfect Way!” revealed to them by He who is to teach us all things of Himself, 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!

Why? I will show you why, they (His Children) will know who God is in Jesus and that’s when all things are put under His feet, Jesus will submit to the God who is the Holy Spirit residing in Him, because the flesh will always submit to the Holy Spirit (Mt.12:31-32) who is God (Jn.4:24), 1 Cor.15:28And when all things shall be subdued unto HIM, then shall the Son also HIMSELF be subject unto HIM (The Holy Spirit, who has given Jesus the Spirit without measure, Jn.3:34!), that put all things under HIM (Who is both LORD and the CHRIST, Ac.2:36 and who is LORD of ALL, Ac.10:36, Mt.28:18!): (So) that God may be all in all! As Christ is in all, to all them who are His: Cor.3:11Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all!

 

A More Excellent Way!

1 Cor.12:31But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way!

Which the Apostle Paul did in the very next chapter:

1 Cor.11:1Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

2And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.

3And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity (love of God), it (All of this) profiteth me nothing!

This cannot be done until we have been regenerated into His likeness (Jn.1:12-13)! Because God is love, 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.

7Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.

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.

14And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.

15Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.

16And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

17Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the ‘Day of Judgment”: because as he is, so are we in this world!

All mankind is made in God’s own image, and unless we become regenerated in God’s love for our brothers and sisters, we cannot be in His Spirit or in His likeness, who is Holy! If we are not in His Spirit and His Spirit is not in us, we are still none of His still, Ro.8:8So 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!

So if we are still in our flesh and walk as the world walks we are still in our damnation and headed for Hell, with all the world! If we are in the Lord we will not fear men and quit killing around the world, because God casts out all fear! This is how we will know who are His and who are not, those who kill for any reason are disregarding the words of God; Who said vengeance belongeth to me, and I will repay, every man for His own works, Rv.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 (The First) and Omega (The Last), the beginning and the end, the first and the last (And all that there will ever be!)! (In anyone’s understanding of words; this means that he who speaks is all that there ever was and is, and who is forevermore, the One True God, Isaiah chapter 44 and chapter 45 explain this, that there is not a god besides Him who is forever!) 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 (See 2 Pt.1:19, who is the Day Star! Explained in 1 Tm.6:13-16!)! 17And the Holy Spirit (God made Flesh) 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.

Love of God a More Excellent Way!

1 Jn.4:18There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out (All) fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. 19We love him, because he first loved us. 20If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen (because God is a Spirit and has always manifested Himself in Jesus, Gal.3:20 and seen in Jn.16:27-28 in the word Again, I go to the Father, 1 Tm.6:14-16!)? If you know who God is, it is because He has revealed Himself 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. To him that knoweth the Son of God has seen the Father and now knows Him; Jn.14:7 and Jn.12:45And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me. Because Jesus and God are ONE in the Same: Jn.10:30! Zech.14:9And the LORD shall be KING over all the earth: in that day shall there be ONE LORD, and HIS name ONE (See Is.49:26). Jesus is the name of the Father, Jn.5:43I am come in my Father’s name (Which means Salvation, 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 (AM) the LORD, (I) AM, thy (your) SAVIOUR and thy (your) REDEEMER, the (ALL) MIGHTY ONE OF JACOB! See Is.9:6, who is our Immanuel, Is.7:14, seen in Mt.1:23, who is God with us!): and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.

Even believing man’s word over God’s words to us by Him as Revealed in His own flesh! For this entire Holy Bible is about one continual running theme, the thing man needs to most; bringing man back into a relationship with His God: Being found in a More Excellent Way! This is what Jesus said, 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? Jesus told us who He was right here in plain English!

Man cannot receive salvation because they do not know who God is in Jesus only, Jn.8:24! Then after being shown in scripture they refuse it because it is too easily understood, even a child can get this theology; that IS, the reason why the children are the greatest in the Kingdom of God; because of their willingness to receive Jesus as their one and only God and Redeemer! Just as the Jews believe in one God, and we are to be grafted into that same vine, in the same flock (Gen.12:1-3), as seen in Jn.15:1-ffs and Jn.10:1-9I Am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture (Eternity in the Kingdom of God! Mt.12:28 and see also Lk.11:20, from Mt.4:17!). 10The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I Am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. 11I Am the good shepherd: the (One) good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. 12But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep. 13The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep. 14I Am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine! 15As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep. 16And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd! (How many? Yes that is right One Shepherd! Just as there can only be One God, who robed Himself in flesh, Jn.1:14!) 17Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.

Jesus said, “Only Those Who Know The Cost Can Be My Disciple!”

How can you know the cost unless we know who Jesus is?

Lk.14:25And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned, and said unto them, 26If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. 27And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple. 28For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it? 29Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him, 30Saying: This man began to build, and was not able to finish. 31Or what king, going to make war against another king, sitteth not down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand? 32Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace. 33So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple. 34Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be seasoned? 35It is neither fit for the land, nor yet for the dunghill; but men cast it out. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear. Only when we understand God gave His all to us, can we then understand that is all He is looking for in us who are called in Jesus’ name! This is the fulfilment of Jn.3:16-18 by believing in the only name by which salvation comes, Ac.4:12 as well as the fulfilment of Mt.28:19-20 as well, Jesus is the name of the Father, the name of the Son and the name of the Holy Spirit as well, because Jesus is the embodiment of the God-head, Col.2: ffs, and we are complete in Him alone, all by Himself the One True God, 1 Jn.5:20, the culmination of all the scriptures of that chapter, Jesus is the One True God!

Therefore a More Excellent Way is knowing Jesus for who He is!

Lk.9:62And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God. If any man has tasted God and known that he is good (meaning Perfect and without blemish or flaw), and return to the ways of this world, you have just lost your flavor and have become useless salt, seen in 2 Pt.2:18For 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. So much for once saved always saved, if you do not abide in every word of God in Christ Jesus, quite calling yourself a Christian, while bringing continual Damnation upon yourself, Ro.3:3For what if some did not believe? Shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? 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!

5But if our unrighteousness commend the righteousness of God, what shall we say? Is God unrighteous who taketh vengeance? (I speak as a man) 6God forbid: for then how shall God judge the world? 7For if the truth of God hath more abounded through my lie unto his glory; why yet am I also judged as a sinner? 8And not rather, (as we be slanderously reported, and as some affirm that we say,) Let us do evil, that good may come? Whose damnation is just! If our lives do not line up with the word of God who is going to be found a liar? It will be the hypocrites!

The More Excellent Way is a narrow or difficult way in which there is much agony seen in Lk.13:23Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, 24Strive (Ἀγωνίζεσθε, Agōnizesthe, from which we get agonize!), to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able!

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 (Because you know not from wince Jesus comes, Jn.8:24!): 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. 28There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob (All who know no other God but One, Is.7:14 seen in Mt.1:23!), and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out! (Why? Because you knew Him (Jesus) not, when you had the chance to know Him, and you kept not His commandments, Jn.14:15, which is every scripture in this Holy Bible, 2 Tm.3:16-17 so a true man of God might be found perfect, in all good works! By obedience to the word of God which cleanses us from our filth and sin, by living in Truth because the True God’s Spirit resides in you to teach you His mind which is His words to you, Mt.5:20 our righteousness that excels that of the scribes and Pharisees, by knowing God’s words to us, which is our righteousness in God in Jesus, 2 Cor.5:21!) 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 (not of our Gods but of God, Singular!). 30And, behold, there are last which shall be first, and there are first which shall be last.

Only when we serve all mankind with our own lives bringing this word of God, called the gospel of Jesus Christ and Him slain from the foundations of creation for our salvation. Can we too enter into the ranks of the last, who will be first, in the Kingdom of God! Jesus was not talking about us giving our lives for our brothers in war as the greatest love! It is when you will give your life for the salvation of the world unto Jesus for our daily cross that we must bear in order to call ourselves one of His disciple’s and a servant of the Most High God, Jesus Christ! This is what James was talking about 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. You can only do that when God lives on the inside of us and is allowed to walk around in us and lead us to wherever he needs us to go, Jn.3:8! Let us look to Jn.3:3-8:3Jesus 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 (Ac.2:1-4), 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 (Something totally “Other” in nature and in Essence, not a person!). See 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 (I wonder if anyone knows what that name is? My money is on the name by which all salvation comes, Ac.4:12 as seen in Ac.3:38-40, in Jesus’ name the name of Our Lord God, who is LORD of ALL; Ac.10:36! Who is God who became flesh, 1 Tm.3:16!): 13Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God (Seen in Ac.11:15-18, who had received the baptism of the Holy Ghost as well as all the apostles, Ac.10:44-48 and were baptized in Jesus name, the justification seen in 1 Cor.6:11! With all scripture harmonizing each other! Otherwise it would be false doctrines; that the world teaches to those who want their ears tickled, because they have itching ears, 2 Tm.4:1-5!). IT TAKES A SUPERNATURAL ACT OF GOD to become one with Him again! 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 (Just as all the apostles had received in the same manor!)! 46For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God! Then answered Peter47Can 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 (What is that name, singular here, for there is but one name by which salvation comes, Ac.4:12 because of Jn.14:14!). Then prayed they him to tarry certain days. That is how one gets born-again, of water and of Spirit, Jn.3:3-8 and the Baptism talked about in Eph.4:4-8, no man ascends up unless he comes down from heaven above!

This is being Born-again, God’s Way

Jn.3:7Marvel not that I said unto thee: Ye must be born again. Only then can we do this; that is required of all of Jesus’ followers: 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 (Ro.8:9)! This is the baptism Paul was speaking of in Eph.4:1I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, 2With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; 3Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 4There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; 5One Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all (Col.3:11-17). 7But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. 8Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. 9(Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? 10He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things (Jn.16:27-28, Key in on the word Again, here in these verses!) 11And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12For the perfecting (Edification not to lord over the flock or to take all their tithes, which are meant for the poor and needy as called out in 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. As well as Mt.25:31When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: 32And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: 33And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. 34Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: 36Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. 37Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? 38When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? 39Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? 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.): of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man (Gal.4:19), unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ:

14That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 15But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into HIM in all things, which is the head, even Christ16From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love. 17This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind (With their many gods incorporating the philosophies of vain men, who make up a god they can serve, even sometimes three of them! Who will forgive a man for walking in his own ways, which are not seen in the word of the one true God!),

18Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: 19Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. 20But ye have not so learned Christ; 21If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him (Jer.31:31-34), as the truth is in Jesus (Jn.6:63 and even though Jesus is the Grace and Truth of God made flesh; it is by God’s own Spirit we are made whole in His Words to us, Even the bread that came down from heaven is not enough, it takes all of God living in us, as seen in Mt.4:4 and Lk.4:4! 2 Cor.3:1-18! For the Lord’s Spirit reveals to us the Lord Himself to our spirits and all mysteries that the world cannot grasp because they know Him not and who He is!):

22That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; 23And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; 24And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness (Which is separation from the world of the lusts of the flesh and being regenerated in the new life of God living in us by His Holiness and His Words of Eternal life living in us, that is the Righteousness, that is right judgment and just thinking, to have the Mind of Christ in us, 1 Cor.2:1-16, which is God’s will operating in our lives; so we know what it is to pray for and what it is to seek after because we have His heart in us, and now have been conformed into His likeness; so that when He comes for His bride, we will be as He is, in this world of ours. as a faithful servant who is at the door waiting eagerly for his Master to come home, Lk.12:35-40!).

25Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another. 26Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: 27Neither give place to the devil. 28Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth. 29Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying (1 Pt.4:7-19), that it may minister grace unto the hearers.

30And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption, Mt.12:31-32! Without the Holy Spirit you will not get your feet off the ground at the rapture or come out of the grave, because you do not know His voice, and have His power and wisdom in you either, 1 Cor.1:24!

31Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: 32And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you. These are Commandments all, these were the Apostles instructions to us from Jesus, Jn.15:17These 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! Is your gospel being well received in all the world? If it is, then you my friend, are too close to being in the world yourself, if the world loves your teachings! 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. 5Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?

A More Excellent Way!

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! (Yes, Jesus just now has shown us who God the Father is in Himself!) 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 (See Jn.6:63 Here for whose words Jesus is speaking, that are Spirit, because God is that Same Spirit, Jn.4:24, who has shed His blood for us seen in Ac.20:28, who is the Holy Spirit!): but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works, (Lk.1:35, who is the power of the HIGHEST, and that can be none other than God Himself, who is the Spirit without measure, Jn.3:34!). 11Believe me that I AM in the Father, and the Father in ME: or else believe me for the very works’ sake. 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 (Jn.16:27-28; Gal.3:20, because God is One! He that came down from Heaven is He who has the words of God, and is He who ascends up into the Heavens to fill all in all, Jn.3:27-36!). 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 dwelleth with you, and shall be in you (The baptism of the Holy Spirit, Ac.2:1-4!)! The very Spirit of Jesus Christ living in us, seen in the very next verse! 18I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you! With a plan of Salvation that is His way and not man’s way, (Ac.11:15-18)!

REPENTANCE is the only Way!

Mt.4:17From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

The cost of Salvation!

 

Today is the Day of salvation; 2 Cor.6:1We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain. 2(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.) 3Giving no offence in anything, that the ministry be not blamed: 4But in all things approving ourselves as the ministers of God (Heb.1:7 from Ps.104:4-5!), in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses, 5In stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labours, in watchings, in fastings; 6By pureness, by knowledge, by long suffering, by kindness, by the Holy Ghost, by love unfeigned, 7By the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left, 8By honour and dishonour, by evil report and good report: as deceivers, and yet true; 9As unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and, behold, we live; as chastened, and not killed; 10As sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things. 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!

Having Works worthy of Repentances!

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!
Repentance which means going in a new direction, which is not of this world! By walking as God walked when HE was among us, when HE showed us, “A More Perfect and A more Excellent Way, Jn.14:6!”

This is why Peter when he preached his first sermon, after being ‘Anointed and Ordained!” in God’s own Spirit in him; gave us the true plan of salvation, for only the Ordained Apostles of Jesus Christ had the Keys of heaven and Peter used all of them in his first sermon! Let us now look at Peter’s first sermon, when the men of the town realized they had crucified the Lord of All glory, 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! The Glory God said He would never give to another, 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. Again in 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! When the Israelites heard, this they were pricked in their hearts: 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 (How many have not fulfilled this commandment, yet?).

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 (To them who will set out in faith believing, for it is impossible to please God without faith for this reason here! We must believe He is a rewarder of them who diligently seek Him, His way, Heb.11:6). 40And with many other words did he (Peter) testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation (See 2 Tm.3:16-17, it takes all scripture living in us to be in God’s WILL and in His GRACE!).

It is just that simple, repent, cry out to the Lord Jesus for His forgiveness of your sins, and seek His anointing of His baptism of His Holy Spirit in you by seeking Him His way: In righteousness of His words living in you, which is the Hope of Salvation; who have found true reconciliation in His words that cleanses us from all wrong, when we abide in Him and His words abide in us in Spirit and in Truth; 2 Cor.5:14For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: 15And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again. 16Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more!

17Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 18And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; 19To wit (To Know), 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! Who know who Jesus is as our god with us, our Immanuel, Mt.1:23, see Is.7:14 and Is.40:3; and Is.9:6, which clearly shows us who Jesus is!

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 (God) hath made him (Jesus) to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in HIM (Jesus): by the Word which is God, Jn.1:1-14, who was made Flesh, 1 Tm.3:16: Col.2:8Beware 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 fullness 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!

Without this operation you cannot be raised in the rapture: Being buried with Christ in His name, for there is no other name by which we must be saved, Ac.4:12, the reason why the True Apostles of Jesus Christ baptized all their converts in the Name of the Lord Jesus, because Jesus is the fullness of the Godhead, the God that was, and is, and is to come, the One True God seen in 1 Jn.5:20, End of subject! He is the First and the Last what part of that did we miss?

Then can we seek and find what it is that pleases Him by the Holy Spirit teaching us all His Truths (Ro.8:9, which is Jesus’ same Spirit as that of God or they would not be used in the same breath and in the same thought here by Paul, unless Paul knew Jesus was Lord of All, Ac.10:36!) (See John chapter 16, also!), 1 Jn.2:20But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.27But the anointing which ye have received of Him (Jesus) abideth in you (Jn.16:12-15; and Jn.14:18, Jesus will come and abide in you, by His Spirit, we will know Him no more after the flesh, but according to the Holy Spirit, Wonderful, the Counsellor, The mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. This is the rest that they would not here in Is.28:12 and are these who have fallen backwards, taken in a snare in verse 13! Because they have not been weaned off of milk and are still in need of mush, for they cannot stand sound doctrine, which is meat, talked about in Hebrews, Heb.5:11-14!), 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 (Not them, or us or we!) (Jn.6:63; 14:26; 15:26 and Ac.1-ffs to 2:1-4, seen in Ac.10:44-48 after repentances of Cornelius, Jms.1:16-17!). This is living in God’s word to us called this Holy Bible for that reason so we can be found Holy as he is Holy, being separated from the world of wickedness, called that untoward generation in Ac.2:40; but notice here in that verse it said and with many more words did Peter exhort unto them, Ac.2:40And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation.

Then the Church of God in Jesus Christ followed A More perfect Way!

Ac.2:41Then 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!

Right here in this section, that I have in bold print (verse 46); is a very important clue to what is going on in the Jewish community; they are still all with one accord worshipping in the Temple of the One True living God, which all the apostles know as Jesus Christ, who is LORD of All, (Ac.10:36), and this is why they had all of the problems while worshipping in the Temple. Because they taught Jesus as the Messiah, God’s Anointed, Holy One, who was God with them as foretold in Is.7:14 who was to be their Immanuel; meaning God with us, what part did we miss here?

Jesus is our One True God, 1 Jn.5:20, who saved us and made us overseers of the One True Church of the Living God in Jesus Christ (Ac.20:28), reconciling the world unto Himself by Jesus, (2 Cor.5:19-21); unless we get this we cannot be seen as the righteousness of God in Jesus! We must worship in Spirit and in Truth, Jn.4:23-24, it is a commandment! Unless one has right thinking and just judgment, one cannot be righteous; This cannot happen unless you have the Mind of God, which is the Mind of Jesus Christ, the right psychology (or mind), can then lead you into the correct philosophies, the correct philosophies, then can give you the correct theologies, because you have the correct interpreter living on the inside of you who wrote the Holy Bible, 2 Pt.1:19-21; “The Day Star!” Not Day Stars! Jesus who dwells in the Schechinah Glory; that will never be given to another! The Glory of God is seen in the face of Jesus, 2 Cor.4:3But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: 4In whom the god (Satan man’s wisdom, Pr.14:12 and 16:25, which is foolishness to our Lord God!) of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. 5For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake. 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! 

Just as Jesus has shown us His More Perfect Way in which all His fellow servants of the Lord walked in; we too will be followers of them even unto death ourselves! Just as Jesus died for all of us, we too will die for all our fellow mankind, this is the sacrifice worthy of the Lord’s followers, to love his brothers no matter who they are; bringing them this plan of salvation and teaching others to make disciples of all nations, till the Lord comes for His own; who have received Him His way! Mt.6:33But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. 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. Who come and seek God His way, in Righteousness and in Holiness, without these two words living in us, no man will see the Kingdom of God, but from a very far distance, as they burn in Hell, where the worm dieth not and the fire is never quenched: 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.

 

Today’s world worships a god called mammon!

Jer.7:16Therefore pray not thou for this people, neither lift up cry nor prayer for them, neither make intercession to me: for I will not hear thee. 17Seest thou not what they do in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem? 18The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger. 19Do they provoke me to anger? Saith the LORD: do they not provoke themselves to the confusion of their own faces? 20Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, mine anger and my fury shall be poured out upon this place, upon man, and upon beast, and upon the trees of the field, and upon the fruit of the ground; and it shall burn, and shall not be quenched. Just as Peter has said to us in 2 Pt.3:1-17 because the world has stopped growing in the knowledge of our God, Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour!

Hosea 4:1Hear the word of the LORD, ye children of Israel: for the LORD hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land. 2By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out, and blood toucheth blood. 3Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away. 4Yet let no man strive, nor reprove another: for thy people are as they that strive with the priest. 5Therefore shalt thou fall in the day, and the prophet also shall fall with thee in the night, and I will destroy thy mother. 6My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

There is a Famine in the land!

It is a famine for the words of Truth; Amos, 8:1Thus hath the Lord GOD shewed unto me: and behold a basket of summer fruit. 2And he said, Amos, what seest thou? And I said; A basket of summer fruit. Then said the LORD unto me: The end is come upon my people of Israel; I will not again pass by them anymore. 3And the songs of the temple shall be howlings in that day, saith the Lord GOD: there shall be many dead bodies in every place; they shall cast them forth with silence. 4Hear this, O ye that swallow up the needy, even to make the poor of the land to fail, 5Saying, When will the new moon be gone, that we may sell corn? And the Sabbath, that we may set forth wheat, making the ephah small, and the shekel great, and falsifying the balances by deceit? 6That we may buy the poor for silver, and the needy for a pair of shoes; yea, and sell the refuse of the wheat? 7The LORD hath sworn by the Excellency of Jacob (Gen.49:8-12: Is that not Jesus, Is.49:26), Surely I will never forget any of their works. 8Shall not the land tremble for this, and every one mourn that dwelleth therein? And it shall rise up wholly as a flood; and it shall be cast out and drowned, as by the flood of Egypt. 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: 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! 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!

If a prophecy fits in a certain generation and then is fitting for another as well; that generation too, will see the same just fate as the others before it, because our God changes not, Mal.3:6! We live in a day of God’s grace and favour, which is His word to us to show us a right way in which God wants us all to live! If we violate that word, with our arrogance we too will see the same fate as all the others who went before us. We may be stronger and even more complex but when it comes to knowledge and understanding only those who find their way to the cross of Jesus Christ as their redeemer, and die to self in a baptism of water in His name, in His watery grave, to death of the flesh and carnality of mankind’s vain imaginations; only they will come to know, “The One True God in Jesus Christ,” reconciling the whole world unto Himself by Jesus, 2 Cor.5:19-21!

Only then can we find redemption in Jesus name only! When man gets off his high horse and starts just listening to what thus sayeth the LORD God and not man; he might begin to have the blessings of God, begin to pour out on him that he cannot contain! But not till man learns who God is and how to be in a real relationship with Him His way. Man must stop playing games of mere Religion! We must work (Col.3:17) by his rules, He is the CREATOR and we just the created servants, and this is all that is expected of us, just as Jesus has shown us here in Lk.17:7But which of you, having a servant plowing or feeding cattle, will say unto him by and by, when he is come from the field, Go and sit down to meat? 8And will not rather say unto him, Make ready wherewith I may sup, and gird thyself, and serve me, till I have eaten and drunken; and afterward thou shalt eat and drink? 9Doth he thank that servant because he did the things that were commanded him? I trow not. 10So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say: We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do!

Follow the plan of Salvation laid out for us in the gospels and all of the Epistles, 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. Jn.10:35If he called them gods (judges or magistrates, See Gen.4:7), unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken; or we will find ourselves in one of these verses here; Mk.9:35And he sat down, and called the twelve, and saith unto them, If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all.

36And he took a child, and set him in the midst of them: and when he had taken him in his arms, he said unto them,

37Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my name, receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me.

38And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he followeth not us.

39But Jesus said: Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me.

40For he that is not against us (Is this not the same understanding of all the “us’s” God used as well even the word “our”, when He said in our image, as in the image of a servant of God as one of His ministers who are a flame of fire, Heb.1:7 and Ps.104:4, beings God is One, Zech.14:9!) is on “our” part. Was not god speaking to all the heavenly host that is always present around Him saying Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, was this not who the us and our directed to, while the Lord spoke of worldly issues, sure it was, being there is no god besides Him, according to scripture, which is of God who cannot lie, Tit.1:1-2 and Heb.6:17-18!)

41For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward.

42And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in ME, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea!

43And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:

44Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

45And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:

46Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

47And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire:

48Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

49For every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt, (Ro.12:1-2, we are the servants of sacrifices for our Lord God’s use, Heb.12:4!).

50Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his saltness, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.

All we have to do is figure out whether we want to be the salt or the fuel for the fire and food for the worm that dieth not, in the fire that is never quenched! I see a problem here, the choice is simple, repent and receive Jesus Christ as our Saviour and abide in his word to us or live anyway we want and explain to Him, your wants were more important than His, and I’m sure He will forgive you not, Mt.12:31-32 says so! You put your will before His and that is blaspheme. The unforgiveable sin in any age, is putting your ideas and beliefs ahead of God’s! Whose Blood has purchased us, 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 (The Holy Spirit) hath purchased with HIS own blood!

Helps us to understand 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! Kind of sums it all up right there doesn’t it? Just like what god had Zachariah write over 530 years before the actual fact; 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: 1 Pt.1:5Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

6Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:

7That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:

8Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:

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. 12Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into. Which is the Same as seen in Ro.8:8So 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! Only when we too are born-again of the water and of the Spirit can we too become one with God in Jesus, by being reconciled to God in Him, our LORD of lords and KING of kings, who is our GOD with us, Mt.1:23 our IMMNAUEL! The One True God St. John talked about in 1 Jn.5:20 or you too are worshipping an idol of your own vain imaginations, which do not hold up to the word of God in Jesus Christ, who is our Lord of All, Ac.1036, the First and the Last, Rv.1:8, 11, (14 see Gen.49:8-12), 18-20! From Gen.1:1 to Rv.22:21 this entire Holy Bible is about bring mankind back into relationship with his God; 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? Jesus’ warning is sufficient for me! Repent and do the first works or He will come and remove your candlestick, Rv.2:5!

Tragic Accidents have a Reason and a Meaning!

I have more to say about this tragic event than they give us room to write in this forum: The remaining comments I care to make will be at this location is anyone wants to see why seemingly impossible tragedies can some how have a silver lining, that can come out from among all this chaos! You will find my comments at, http://lgarylordswayministries.wordpress.com.

P. S.
2 Tm.4:1 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; 2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. 3 For 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; 4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
Jesus says if we do not know who He is, we will too die in our sins, Jn.8:24; do you really know who Jesus is? Come find out at Lord’s Way Ministries, https://garylordsway.wordpress.com, and i too will have my final remarks there about this seemingly tragic event, that will no doubt turn into a life changing event for someone in one of these families hurt in this seemingly and hopefully unrepeatable tragidy. Only if we are found to be one of His will he lead us inot eternity holding our hands, Ps.48:14!

My Editorial

We see yet again another tragic event and at some time will no doubt come to a cause of driver error or even maybe vehicle or mechanical malfunction, which caused this seemingly senseless loss of innocent lives. We or at least we all should grieve for the remaining families that are still grieving over their lost loved ones. This is yet again just how quickly any one of us can step into eternity, and only those who are saved and have had a relationship in the spiritual realms with our Lord Jesus and have received His repentance’s for what all sinners must come to grips with and is the wrath of God upon all sinners no matter the cause of their demise, are they too going to be justified come Judgment day (1 Cor.6:11)? Have they or any of us done all to stand before the Almighty and appear to be without sin in His presence, this is what is required if us in Mt.5:48 and Eph.5:27!

According to Jesus unless we are born-again of the water and of the Spirit, we cannot enter into heaven, Jn.3:3-7 so that we can be blown to wherever God needs us to go and be a witness for him and win souls for the Lord as seen in Mk.8:34-38, or we are not worthy of Him seen yet again in Matthew Chapter 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 cannot find the repentances the kind God is looking for we will never be seen in Heaven, Mt.4:17.

The kind of Repentance of God seen in the book of Acts seen in Cornelius’ house in the 10th chapter, which the Apostles saw in chapter 11, which lead them to hold their peace, that God had truly received Cornelius’ house hold the same as all the Apostles and had received that which Jesus talked about us needing to receive, to be with one with the Father, Jn.14:6, seen in 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 (This is the baptism talked about in Eph.4:5!). 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!” By which we are all sealed if we have the fruits of the evidences of that which they exhibited in the upper room experience, 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! This is the fulfillment of that verse in Jn.3:8, that is talked about in Joel 2:28 and Is.28:9-12 or you will end up as those in verse 13, warned about in Hebrews chapter 12, that have fallen back into perdition, seen in Heb.10:38 and 39!

We never know when we will step into our eternal realms as is evidenced in this horrible crash; and only those who have done all to stand before our Almighty God (Phil.2:10; Which is in obedience to His words given to us in His Holy Bible as seen in Jn.15:3 which cleanses us from our sins and makes us perfect in His eyes (Jn.14:15; Jn.8:51) can we be redeemed into His everlasting company!), will be those as seen in this scripture; Ps.48:13Mark ye well her bulwarks, consider her palaces; that ye may tell it to the generation following. 14For this God is our God for ever and ever: He will be our guide even unto death!

Are these who were lost in this horrible accident truly going to share in the eternal glory that is expected when we truly have a perfect relationship with our God? Because it is expected of us, Mt.5:48Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. For this reason Jesus said this in 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!

If we have seen someone stumble in the ways that they are going and we are actually one of Jesus’ Servants who are called Saints of God, which in the Greek original in the word that the Bible uses for Saint here is the same word used for Holy (Meaning Set Apart, Sanctified, or Consecrated, meaning something that if for the use of the Lord only!), and without Righteousness (Obedience to His Word which is His will for us, seen in His words to us! Which is Just thinking and acting which lines up with the Word of God, which is being just or true as seen in Righteousness of God in Jesus, 2 Cor.5:19-21!) and true Holiness which is of God only that is given in the regeneration seen in Tit.3:5 of a new heart; are they doing what Jesus told us to be doing when we are found in His presence; are we or they that was in this accident where they lost their lives, going to be found to be worthy servants and friends of God? That is what we are to focus on, are we strengthening our relationship with God our Lord Jesus and are we going to be found picking up our weaker brothers in showing them a more Perfect way to God, Ac.18:26? 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.

Jesus said many are called, and in fact all are called to come to be with Jesus because that is His will for His creation, that none should be lost, seen in 2 Pt.3:1-18 and that we too are called out to grown in the knowledge of who Jesus is; or we too will face His wrath as seen in Jn.8:24I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I AM [he], ye shall die in your sins. You see not many people actually know Jesus as the I AM of the Old Testament, seen in Ex.3:14 and again seen in Jn.8:58Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I AM! And then those who are of the Sanhedrin went about trying to stone Jesus for claiming to be who He said He was! They said Jesus made Himself out to be God, but it was God who set about to make Jesus the true Messiah the truly Anointed or Holy One, who is God in the flesh as promised 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! That John the Baptist fulfilled in Mt.3:3. Just as Jesus told His own disciples in Jn.14:7If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him. 8Philip saith unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us. 9Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? He that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father? Which shows us who the Father is in Jesus, as well as the Apostle Paul knew all too well himself when he wrote this statement which became a verse of Truth in the Holy Bible because God cannot lie, 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. We see who the God the Father really is! For this reason when Paul was explaining the mysteries of the Godhead seen in 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 fullness of the Godhead bodily. Paul never mentions the Holy Ghost or the Holy Spirit because Paul knew who God was as seen in Jn.4:24God is a Spirit (Being the s used here is capital it shows deity, that the Spirit here is none other than the Holy Spirit, being we are called out in many scriptures to be Holy as He is Holy, Lev.11:44-45 and again in 1 Pt.1:14-16, because God changes not, Mal.3:6!): and they that worship Him must worship him in spirit and in truth (See Jn.14:6 and Jn.1:17; Jesus is the Spirit of Grace and Truth, Rev.19:10, which is the Testimony of Jesus Christ in you, Jn.14:18!). We cannot worship God unless we know who God is in Jesus Christ as seen in scripture not man’s inability to know anything unless he has been regenerated in Jesus’ likeness. With His Holy Spirit indwelling in you so that you can have the true interpreter who had Holy Men of God who spoke and had the words spoken to them from Heaven wrote down for our understanding of God’s Mind in us, seen in 1 Cor.2:1-16, unless we have been born-again of His Spirit, we can in no way shape or form be lead into the realms of knowledge of Him or His ways until we do have this experience, seen in Ac.2:1-4! 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 none other than the one seen in the verse right before these; 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: Being regenerated and born-again of a New heart that is of God! 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 (see Zech.12:10, it says they will look upon Me whom they have pierced, over 530 years before the actual fact!), when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow. Jesus is the Day Star which is the “Morning Star” promised in Rv.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. 29He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. These who have done what? They held onto truth, which is Jesus Christ who is both the LORD and the CHRIST seen in Ac.2:36 and who is LORD of ALL in Ac.10:36, who is supposed to be in us 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. Who is the Glory of God that will not be given to another seen in 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 in 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. Which Jesus said if we would only believe He would show the glory of God, while He raised Lazarus form the dead four days old, Jn.11:40Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God? The same glory that is seen in the very face of Jesus, 2 Cor.4:6For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. If the Jews eyes were not blinded they would have never crucified the Lord of All Glory seen in, 1 Cor2:6Howbeit 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.

How can anyone have these mysteries by manifested to them unless they are as Jesus and raised from the dead of heart in the depths of sin of wickedness of this world, as seen in 1 Jn.5:19And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness! This cannot happen unless God brings revelation into your lives by His indwelling Spirit in us as shown in the further verses in 1 Cor.2:9But 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, and 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 (Jn.4:24! The Sprit of the Highest seen in Lk.1:35 who conceived the Holy Thing or it should read Holy One, because God is One Zech.14:9, and there is no gods besides Him, Is.44 and chapter 45! Because Jesus is the First and the Last, Is.48:12 and Rv.1:8, 11 and again in verses 17-20!). 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 cannot have the mind of Christ unless His Holy Spirit is in you (Jn.14:18), which will tell all about Jesus as seen in Jn.14:26 and 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. You see only they who have come from above with return unto whom they belong, Ecc.12:7Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it. Who we serve down here is whom we will return to, Ro.6:16Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? The only righteousness we have has been given to us in the Word of God, and only those who obey His words in our hearts that have been refashioned into His Likeness, are they who know who Jesus is! As seen in His Scriptures, such as this one, 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 same glory I was talking about earlier! Jesus has always been the manifestation of God to mankind and it is proven in these verses here as well, 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 shew 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. They now knew who Jesus really was as foretold 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 (Meaning secret as seen in Jugs.13:7), COUNSELLOR (Lk.4:18-22; Jn.5:39), The (AL) MIGHTY GOD, The EVERLASTING FATHER, and The PRINCE OF PEACE!

When we have known Jesus we have known the fullness of the Godhead in Him. Who has received of the Holy Spirit without measure as seen in Jn.3:24For John was not yet cast into prison. 25Then there arose a question between some of John’s disciples and the Jews about purifying. 26And they came unto John, and said unto him, Rabbi, he that was with thee beyond Jordan, to whom thou barest witness, behold, the same baptizeth, and all men come to him. 27John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven. 28Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before him. 29He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled. 30He must increase, but I must decrease. 31He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all. 32And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth; and no man receiveth his testimony. 33He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true. 34For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him. 35The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand. 36He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him. Only can one doe the work none other can do unless God be with Him and in Him for He doeth the works as shown to us by Jesus in Jn.14:6-10Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. 11Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake. The Father who is the Holy Spirit whose blood has purchased 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! Who also Thomas learned too before it was too late for him who Jesus really was in this verse, Jn.20:28And Thomas answered and said unto him, My LORD and my God! Beings God cannot lie if Thomas had misspoken Jesus would have had to straighten out Thomas right here and now in front of all the Disciples and now called to be Ordained Apostles, in Jn.15:16 and verse 20 says if we will obey Jesus’ teaching we will obey the Apostles’ as well, 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. Fro only they had the true Keys to heaven and they were used on the day of Pentecost in the same day the birth of the true church of God in Jesus Christ came into existence when about 3000 souls were entered into the Lord, and became one with Him in His Spirit and in his Truths! As they did what the Apostles said to do in verse 40: 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. (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?)

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. (To all generations because all that comes from God is without repentances, 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!) And finally one of the most important things in becoming Holy is this, seen in the very next verse!

 40And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation! Beings the whole world lies in wickedness ever since the time entered into the world by Adam and Eve, the whole world has become a child of wickedness, from inheritance of their forefathers, Jer.17:4And thou, even thyself, shalt discontinue from thine heritage that I gave thee; and I will cause thee to serve thine enemies in the land which thou knowest not: for ye have kindled a fire in mine anger, which shall burn forever. 5Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD. 6For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited. 7Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is. 8For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit. 9The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? 10I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings. 11As the partridge sitteth on eggs, and hatcheth them not; so he that getteth riches, and not by right, shall leave them in the midst of his days, and at his end shall be a fool. 12A glorious high throne from the beginning is the place of our sanctuary. 13O LORD, the hope of Israel, all that forsake thee shall be ashamed, and they that depart from me shall be written in the earth, because they have forsaken the LORD, the fountain of living waters.

How can man know the ways of eternal life unless he knows from wince his Salvation comes from as seen in scriptures not man’s teachings; 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? Unless we receive Jesus as the One and only 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!

All things work to the good of those who are called, Ro.8:28And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. 29For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified. Those who have received the holy Spirit which is of God and our Lord Jesus Christ and unless we have this we are still none of His yet still as seen 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. God uses these accidents to wake up His people to their fragile natures, and that they may know just how unpredictable life really is. He said we would have trails and temptations in this life but to be of good cheer for He too overcame the world, and so must we all if we are to be one of the few who are His chosen, who have been tried in the fire and refined as pure as gold and silver: 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! The Lord held all of those in the wilderness liable to their murmurings, seen in Nu.14:28Say unto them, As truly as I live, saith the LORD, as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you: 29Your carcasses shall fall in this wilderness; and all that were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward which have murmured against me. Mal.3:6For I am the LORD, I change not; Heb.13:8Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever. The Lord said there will come woes unto the children of 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. 6But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. 7Woe unto the world because of offences! For it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh! The only safety in this world is to abide in Jesus and His Word abide in us, as we then will be seen to have a pure heart when we do these things out of love for Him, 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. Only when we abide in his words to us given in this Holy bible can we be seen in a more perfect way, 1 Cor.12:31But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way. As those seen in the very next chapter, 1 Cor.13:1Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. 2And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. 3And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. Clear to the last verse here:13And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

When we have loved our brethren that is in the world and we have done it to the least of one of these in the world no matter who they are we have done it unto Jesus Christ, who is our god with us seen in Mt.1:23 our Immanuel. We have fulfilled all the law as seen in Gal.5:13For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. 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. All because our god became flesh and dwelt among us, as when we do these things unto the orphaned, the widows, we have become perfect, in the eyes of our Lord God, 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. This cannot be done without all scripture living inside of us, given to us by His Holy Spirit by which we test all the other spirits that are in the world, 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. Who preach to they who have twitching 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. These are they who have made up an imaginary god whom they can serve their way, which St. John warned us about in 1 Jn.5:21!

There are many in the world today who call themselves Apostles, and who want to rewrite what has already been sealed by St. John in Rv.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. Many are saying we are saved by faith and grace alone, if this be true then why did Jesus say we will be judged by our works, and that John the Baptist said we will be judged by our works of repentance, Jn.3:19And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 21But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. 27John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven. 28Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before him. 29He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled. 30He must increase, but I must decrease. 31He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all. 32And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth; and no man receiveth his testimony. 33He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true. 34For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him. 35The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand. 36He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him. How is one to be in truth which is required in Jn.4:24 unless the word of God abide in your heart and you bring it forth every day in your Life’s actions, as required in scripture, 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. 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. I write unto you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked one. 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. 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. 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.

Those who are of God abide in Him and He in them and they walk as He walked on this earth, and they go and sin no more, Jn.8:11; and Jn.5:14 or a worse thing will come upon you as well, see 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. Because as God is love we too have now become one with Him in that His Spirit resides in us as we are as he was in this world so are we too today, 1 Jn.4:13Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit. 14And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. 15Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God. 16And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. 17Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the Day of Judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.

This means we have done all to stand before him come the Day of Judgment and will be seen in His eyes as Perfect, Mt.5:48 because we know all His scriptures as well as the scribes and Pharisees, 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. Without righteousness and Holiness Heb.12:14Follow 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; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled; who as Esau lost his inheritance because of his lack of interest in the things of God, and the cares of the flesh and carnality in this temporal life we all have for our trial grounds, he failed to look at what is not seen with the eyes of mankind. Jesus talked about four seeds that were sown and only one of those seeds came to full term and yielded fruits, that is only 25 % of the seed sown, Jesus said many are called but few will be chosen because they strived to enter into the straight gate. Strive in the Greek that is used in Lk.13:24 is the word we get today as agonize, we must mortify this flesh as seen in Ro.8:13, this tells us we are to be about our lord’s business according to His ways not man’s. Man has a way that seemeth right to him but is the way of death, Pr.14:12 and 16:25! As well as 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. When God speaks to us He has already put History in his mold and it is already formed before it is written by mankind in his journals!

With man it is impossible to keep all that has been written for man to keep without the Spirit of God in you! That is what Jesus was talking about in Mt.19:16And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? 17And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? There is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments. 18He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, 19Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 20The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet? 21Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me. 22But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions. 23Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven. 24And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. 25When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved? 26But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible. If a man doesn’t know the cost of discipleship and what is involved in worshipping God in Spirit and in Truth how is one going to be saved according to the reality of God’s word to us? Unless mankind is put back into union with god by receiving God’s repentances of what he must do to all who are dead in their sin, we will never become one with Him in truth, as seen in Cornelius’ case in Ac.10: who fasted often and prayed continuously and sought God will all that he had. This is Repentances worthy of the pure heart behind them, 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. This was Paul speaking, who also gave us this one 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. As Paul told the women in the true Church of God will not cut their hair, and if anyone is contentious, we have no such customs. So go ahead and cut your hair and be contentious, but know this that people who are contentious will not enter into the Kingdom of God; because they have violated 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. Are we greater than God? If we judge ourselves here and now we will not be judged in the end of days, 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. You cannot drink of the cup of this world that lies in wickedness and the cup of our Lord and expect to get away with it. 1 Cor.10:19What say I then? that the idol is any thing, or that which is offered in sacrifice to idols is any thing? 20But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. 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? 23All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not. We are to strengthen the weaker brethren and pick them up who are struggling and we are never to allow our actions to bring a railing accusation to us or the church, 1 Cor.10:31Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God. 32Give none offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the Gentiles, nor to the church of God: 33Even as I please all men in all things, not seeking mine own profit, but the profit of many, that they may be saved. Let all our actions be becoming to God; 1 Cor.15: 58Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your (our Works) labour is not in vain in the Lord. Fro He will repay and reward us for our works, Rv.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. This cannot be done unless we have been found in agreement with the following verse, seen here;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.

It takes all scripture working in our lives to be seen as righteous, that means just in our judgments, and without Holiness, which is separation form the world that lies in wickedness, we too will be found as one of these, 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! All because you would rather listen to the world, that is about to perish in its wickedness. This is the adultery that the Israelites repeatedly did with their God, as they began to serve the gods of this man’s world, whom they have made up in their own hearts and minds, just as the world today, there is nothing new under the sun just as Solomon said in Ecc.1:8All 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. Man keeps on repeating his mistakes, as it is written, My people are lost because of lack of knowledge, they are consumed because they have not learned to fear the Lord, in which is the beginning of wisdom, and yet they are in a famine still because they have not the heart of a servant who fears his master!

Surely out of tragedies, we can find time to reflect on what it is the Lord is trying to teach us in our loss of these children and their chaperon’s, in this terrible accident, which took their young lives still ahead of them. Who can make sense of it all, all we can do is trust in our Omniscient God, who knows the end from the beginning and we will find that in times such as this we can grow in the knowledge of our Great God in that He has given us yet another chance to trust in Him and to grow in faith and find a new way to love our brothers in this lifetime we still have available to us in the lad of the living, that we too can reach out to one such as one of these who are needing us and our prayers and support do that we too can be seen as approved when we do these things even to the least of these; we have done it unto our LORD JESUS! May God have mercy on all of their souls, while we reflect on the remainder of our days of this temporal existence we shared with them, as we try and fulfill what it is that the Lord will have us take away out of this tragic lesson of life: That we too can become better in these final days as we all watch for Jesus’ coming in the air. Where we will once again meet with all those who have found and worship Him now, in Spirit and in His Truths!

A Letter to Brother Bramwell Chandrakumar’s Questions

Questions from Brother Bramwel S. Chandrakumar

 

 

  1. Personal fellowship with God and His Son Jesus through Holy Spirit…

Jesus has defined God for us in scripture: Jn.4:24God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship Him in spirit and in truth. If we then know God is a Spirit, because God cannot lie (Tit.1:2 who is also our Saviour seen in the latter verses!), and Jesus is the manifestation of God in the flesh according to the word of God, seen in 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, we must be justified in our flesh if we want to be one with God in Christ Jesus, reconciled unto God by Jesus seen in 2 Cor.5:19-21!), seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory. The only glory that God said He would not share with another as in Is.42:8 and 48:11, the same glory we see in the face of Jesus Christ 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. This Glory even Jesus has shown us Himself in scripture, Jn.11:40Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God? And also who the one leper came back to give glory to God at the very feet of Jesus, Lk.17:18There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger. If anyone would have known who Jesus was they would not have crucified the Lord of Glory, 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.

For there to be a clear understanding of the Godhead and the nature of God, we have to understand God in the way the Jews understand God, because we are to be grafted into that vine, just as Jesus has told us in Jn.15:1-ffs there. We are the bride of Christ and therefore we must be without spot, wrinkle, and to be seen as without blemish, 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. We do that by a clear understanding of who Jesus is, in order for us to be able to worship the One true God of the Jews we are to be grafted into the one flock (Jn.10:1-ffs), otherwise we are not worshipping in Spirit and in Truth of the scriptures, and we then will be worshipping a god of our own imaginations, as seen in the trinity theory or hypothesis. Which was made or though up by others, other than the apostles and brought up a great deal of time after the last Apostle, which was St. John, who died, around A.D. 100.

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trinity and also http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tertullian, which was thought up and put into practice by the Roman Catholic (meaning Universal) Church which was trying to incorporate the mythologies of the Greek, Socrates, Plato, Stoic, Aristotle, Origen, and even pagan beliefs as well and incorporate this whole mess into a meta-philosophical, arrangement of how to describe and understand scriptures with their points of view which can never work, for a Jew or for a true Christian of Jesus Christ the One True God as 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! Which is tied directly to the terminologies of the Jews who only know one God, the I Am, the Jehovah, or Yahweh! When a child in the Jewish community is given a name by his parents, that child literally takes on the manifestation of that name in: In their understanding of that name and what that name is meaning. Jesus said I come in my Father’s name, Jn.5:43; Jesus’ name is the Greek version of Joshua, this name means Yahweh or Jehovah is Saviour or Redeemer. This was fulfilled in Jesus, therefore Jesus has told us when we see Him we see the One who sent Him, Jn.12:45And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me. Jesus is the manifestation of the One True God who is a Spirit seen in Jn.4:24, who is Holy, and who they of heaven are around the throne room say is Holy, holy, holy God Almighty, Rv.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. Which was, and is, and is to come, who is Jesus, who is the First and the Last the one true God, Is.48:12, Rv.1:8, and 12! This is why the Jews always wanted to stone Jesus because they though Jesus beings He was a man made Himself out to be God, they did not understand God became flesh and dwelt among them as seen in scripture, Mt.1:23, as was foretold by their own prophets, Is.7:14Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. Who is and has all the government laid upon His shoulders for forevermore, as required in scripture, Gen.49:8Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise: thy hand shall be in the neck of thine enemies; thy father’s children shall bow down before thee. 9Judah is a lion’s whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up? 10The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be. 11Binding his foal unto the vine, and his ass’s colt unto the choice vine; he washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes: 12His eyes shall be red with wine, and his teeth white with milk. Which we see in Revelation, Rv.1:14His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; it doesn’t matter where we are at in the Holy Bible; it comes down to this one simple theology: That God created the Universe, and sin entered into it by Adam. God knew before He said one “let there be” that He would have to come and bring salvation to His creation, that He brought into existence with the breath of His mouth, but beings God is the Holy Spirit, had no blood to give for the sacrifice, to shed for the covering of sin, Heb.9:22And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission. This blood God first used was from the skins He used to cover Adam and Eve with, when He made them robes, Gen.3:21Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them. (כֻּתֹּ֫נֶת, kethoneth or kuttoneth: a tunic, a piece of clothing that covers to the wrists and goes down to the feet.) This is how God covered man, not as man did with aprons! This is how we are to be clothed today as well, because God changes not, Mal.3:6. This is the modesty God is looking for in us as well.

The Us  and “We” in the scriptures that the Trinitarians love to use as evidence to substantiate their doctrines is on this account; which is to be shown to you by the Holy Spirit, who will lead you into all truths. If we look at creation and how it came to pass God always made something before it was going to be needed by something else, thus He made the earth and the heavens, before man and the animals were formed or created, so in this logic God made the Heavenly Host before they were to serve mankind and to serve and function as God’s messengers and our protectors and instructors, by which the scriptures were given to us (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guardian_angel). Beings God knows the end from the beginning and how things were going to turn out from before He said one word in creation, He too knew He would not have a union with a machine or a servant who was predestined to conform to everything, that is, He would have no union with creation without it being in Love with Him and glorifying Him Alone, He is a Jealous God! (Beings God is LOVE, 1 Jn.4:1-ffs!) So in order for God to create man in His image God had to give man the ability to either Love Him or to hate Him, and I want you to notice here the word for hate is used in the since God uses it and in the original language is by what we always must use for our translations by which they were originally meant to understand the words in. Hate in this case only means to like less, than the other. Not as despise that is another word all together used for those cases. This is how freewill was created, in order for us to love God we had to be given an option to either accept Him as Creator or to deny Him and walk as gods ourselves; as seen in the Mythologies and Paganologies even this Trinity worshipping three Gods in one God, which is consubstantiation which is and are contradictions in terms and terminologies which is an oxymoron in themselves, when broken down in their root forms (with any word starting off with tow pre fixes!) of understandings when trying describe our God, according to Jewish Doctrine and Theologies; which must be used in terms related to their God who we are to be grafted into or we are in fact worshipping another god all together, which the world worships, which is idolatry, 1 Jn.5:21, the god who allows sin in your lives!

When God said let us make man in our image, and they have become as one of us; this is referring to the knowledge of good and evil, which all the angels that were present and in attendance with our God while serving Him. Not that there was with another God being present with Him as supposed by the Trinitarians, which contradict the scriptures. If we have a doctrine and it will not allow us to translate our understanding of God and His being, His nature, and His characteristics correctly as called out in all scriptures, which are used to show us Him in them, and it will not work in them all, in clear understanding; then we have the wrong interpretations of them. All scripture shows us there is only One God and His name is One, Zec.14:9, and He alone is our God (Isaiah chapter 44 and 45 are good examples of the one God, who knows no other God besides Him only!), 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 (This cannot be any other than Jesus!). From the Old Testament to the New Testament is about man coming into a relationship with his God after it was lost in Adam. The only way that can happen is if God Himself, shows mercy on His creation, and He Himself shows His grace which is His Favour on His creation and comes Himself to redeem it from its sin, with His own blood, Ac.20:28Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

Jesus Himself said it best in 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? The Trinity is man’s doctrine and theology, which has no scriptural substantiation, thus that is the reason they call is Dogma, which means has no scriptural substantiations but is based on philosophical views of propositions. If you can find a flaw in one axiom of their reasoning the whole doctrine is to be thrown out; the trinity doctrine says the Father is not the son, and Jesus refuted this in scripture Himself, Jn.10:30; and Jn.14:7-ffs who is the Spirit that He will send to abide in us after he goest to be with the Father seen in Jn.14:18 as we see in Jn.16:27For 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, 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 Holy Spirit, who is God with us Spiritually), The (Al)mighty God, The Everlasting Father (He who has created heaven and Earth), The Prince of Peace (The I Am who was before Abraham, who became flesh to redeem His people, and be their King of kings as promised to King David in 2 Sam.7:1-17, which was promised and prophesied by Jacob in Gen.49, which God was going to use the Tribe of Judah for this one purpose to redeem mankind and become their King of kings and LORD of lords and the only way Jesus can be a Prince of Peace (which is the only way we can have union with God is if we are at peace with Him, can two walk together unless they agree, Amos.3:3) is to be a son of a king; which traced His lineage all the way back to Adam, the prosperity of the whole human race, our father and our brother, 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. This is the fulfillment of all the law, Gal.5:14For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: because Jesus our God became our Brother! 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. That is the reason many are called, in fact all the world is to receive this teachings, which are called out in scripture which is the only Truth in the History of mankind, (Jn.1:17 Grace and Truth came by Jesus Christ!), and few will behave themselves according to His teachings, (Jn.14:15), this is the narrow path which we are all to walk on, not to the right hand of it or the left, in the ways of man’s teachings but according to the only word by which salvation comes, Jn.6:63, which are eternal life to those who will receive it, and few there will be, Mt.20:16; Mt.22:14, because Jesus’ words are forever, Mt.24:35!

This is how we discern Spirits (words or ideas) by how well they line up with the Teachings of our God, given to us by His grace, which is the gospel and the word of God, (Ac.20:24; and 32, Gal.1:8-9), which is His mind, and how can we have His mind unless we have His words of life living in us, 1 Cor.2:1-16! Anything that doesn’t line up with the words of God are of the antichrist and is the other gospel Paul taught about! Gal.1:7Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. When we have Jesus Christ we are complete that is all we need, everything all humanity needs is fulfilled and is provided for in Christ Jesus, for He alone was given the Spirit without measure, Jn.3:34For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him. There is no other baptism by which all men must be saved, Ac.4:12: Because all the fullness of the Godhead was in Jesus, 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 (where is it mentioned about the Holy Ghost, if this is going to explain the mystery of the Godhead? It is because Paul knows they of the Jews knew that God is a Spirit and whoever was God’s was called out to be Holy for He was holy, Lev.11:44-45, thus the Holy Spirit, Ac.7:51 and see verse 59!); 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 (Who preach this Trinity doctrine of tradition of men!).

9For in him dwelleth all the fullness 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: (That is why we must be baptized in His name, we are being buried to self, carnality, and lusts of this world, 1 Jn.2:15-17) 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!The New Testament Covenant and will of God for all of us, 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. 1 Cor.11:1Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ (Was not Jesus baptized? There is even a faction out there in the world who proclaim baptism is not necessary! Jn.3:3-8, if we are not baptized in the Holy Spirit we are not only none of His yet still, Ro.8:9, but we are not in compliance to His every word, this is the first (or Original) sin that was committed the sin of disobedience to God’s words, which will make anyone at all times fall out of union with Him, Amos.3:3; Mt.12:31-32 and 46-50! To be out of the will of God on purpose or presumptuously is the unforgivable sin, in this lifetime or the next!).  2Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you.

  1. How to overcome or subdue other thoughts into subjection of Chris Jesus…..

The only thing I can say about this is simply never stop thinking about Jesus and always in everything we say and do we do all for the Lord we love and worship in His name only, 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. Pray without ceasing, 1 Thes.5:1But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. 2For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. 3For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. 4But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. 5Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. 6Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. 7For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. 8But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. 9For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, 10Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. 11Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do. 12And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you; 13And to esteem them very highly in love for their work’s sake. And be at peace among yourselves. 14Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men. 15See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men. 16Rejoice evermore. 17Pray without ceasing. 18In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. 19Quench not the Spirit. 20Despise not prophesyings. 21Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. 22Abstain from all appearance of evil. 23And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it. 25Brethren, pray for us. 26Greet all the brethren with an holy kiss. 27I charge you by the Lord that this epistle be read unto all the holy brethren. 28The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.

All scripture is our lamp unto our feet and we cannot walk without being in darkness unless we walk in the light of our Lord Jesus (Jn.8:12), and from Gen.1:1 to Rev.22:21 we are to walk in the Holy Bible’s light which are our stepping stones on which, keep us from sinking in the mud of this world’s wickedness, Jm.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. 1 Jn.5:19And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness. The world’s teachings and the world’s thinking is always contrary to the will of God, that is why the world hears them of the world and they will not hear the Saints of God, 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.

3.     How to will souls for Jesus….etc. 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. With this said all we can do is present our testimony of what Jesus did and is doing in our lives, as well as live in the word of God as His word is living in us as we abide in Jesus as we are reconciled to God in Jesus as shown to us in 2 Cor.5:19-21 while allowing to move and direct our lives as we allow Him to walk in us as seen in 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.

While we obey Jesus in His scriptures  (Jn.14:15), 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. As we keep to all the scriptures given to us by Jesus; Anointed Ordained Apostles, as called out in scripture Jn.15:20 and again in Ac.2:38-40 and 1 Cor.11:1-2 as we see are called out from the Lord Himself, Deu.4:2; 12:32; 5:31-33; Josh.1:7 and then picked up again by the Apostle Paul in Ro.12:1-2, as we love God as our brothers and our own lives as well, for our bodies are no longer ours, we have been purchased by the blood of God (Ac.20:28), Gal.5:14, because when we do this we do it unto Him, Mt.25:40!

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 indeed 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 and Kumasi, Ghana, and all of Africa: And (Brother Davies at “The Shekinah Glory Assembly” is just one of the few we all must help!): 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!

This is best described as a study of

The Mystery Doctrine of Grace

By F. W. Krummacher (1796 – 1868)

What is the principle thing in Christianity? On what does all finally depend and what is the surest sign of a state of grace? These questions, my brethren, are not difficult to answer. The principal thing, and the surest touchstone of Christianity, is this: that our godliness should shine forth in our life, business, and all our walk and conversation; in our sufferings, in avoiding of evil, in patience, in meekness, in peacefulness, in compassion, in industry, and in a faithful discharge of our daily calling. “Let your light so shine before men,” said the Lord, “That they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.” “Not everyone that says unto Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven, but he that does the will of My Father which is in heaven.” “By their fruit you shall know them.” “Show me your faith by your works,” says James. And Paul says, “Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.” “You are,” exclaimed Peter, “a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people, that you should show forth the praises of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.”

In these, and many other passages of Holy Scripture, all our boasted godliness and fancied merit, are pronounced worthless and hypocritical; yes, even judged and condemned, when they do not so affect our hearts, as to produce a virtuous life, fruitful in good works. “Without holiness,” says God “no man shall see the Lord.” And in the first epistle of John we find, “He that commits sin is of the devil; and whoever is born of God, does not commit sin; for His seed remains in him: and he cannot commit sin, because he is born of God.” “Whoever is born of God, sins not.” This is a remarkable passage; how are we to understand it? Are they who are born again really free from all sin? Need they no longer daily renew the complaints and sighs of a contrite heart, that they have been so remiss in their most sacred obligations; in love to their God, and to their brethren? Does not John himself declare, “If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us”; yes, we make God a liar. How then can we bring these two passages, which seem to contradict each other, into unison? This will not be so difficult, my brethren, if we look more closely at the context. John tells us explicitly why the regenerated do not sin. He says, “He does not commit sin, because His seed (the seed of God, the seed of the new life from God, Christ Jesus, who is the true life) remains in him.

Whoever is truly born of God, has obtained another nature, a new life: he has become a new creature in Christ Jesus; he sees sin in its most frightful form, and abhors it as the greatest evil; he hates it as an act of enmity towards God—as the murderer of his Savior, his own life, his salvation. Nothing is so horrible, so odious to him, as sin; he bears in his heart a deep and sincere desire, and an earnest prayer renewed daily and hourly, to be delivered from the bondage of this tyrant, and to serve the Lord in the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. The Savior has enlightened him from pure mercy, so that he has recognized his wretched condition through sin; He has atoned for his sins by the death struggle on the cross; He has forgiven his transgressions, and purified him in His own blood, and made him blessed and holy, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit. This astonishing grace, this unspeakable mercy has eternally estranged him from sin; sin has become detestable to him, it is a crying abomination, a most unnatural ingratitude, and therefore he hates, avoids, flies, and curses sin; and prays, strives, sighs, and uses his utmost endeavors to root it from his heart.

But how is this possible? Does not the seed of the serpent yet reign within him? Do not the most beloved children of grace still sigh and groan under the weight of their transgressions? Is not the Christian’s pillow often moistened with the tears of godly sorrow and repentance? Truly it is, but yet even in this distress and lamentation, this strife against sin, and this imploring of the sanctifying power of the blood of Christ, there is proof given, that he who is born again has received a new nature which cannot sin, to which sin is a strange, disgusting, and unfriendly element; and that the old Adam, which exists in sin, has, nevertheless, received a death wound which will by degrees cause his destruction.

We ought to try and examine ourselves, sincerely as before the sight of God, whether we know this new life by experience. Many deceive themselves, many pretend to have the seed of God in them, many imagine themselves in a state of grace when it is not so; and the consequence of this will be, that they will turn the grace of God into licentiousness, and still continue to go on in sin. Where grace has really been experienced, it breathes death against the pleasures of sin. We will now consider this so frequent an abuse—not of grace, but of the doctrine of grace.

In Your light, oh Lord! Shall we see light? Lift up the light of Your countenance upon us, that we may be healed. Your mercy is great to those that fear You. How unnumbered are the wonders which You do to Your children! Your affections yearn with compassion; You had pity upon the miserable, Oh God! Give us the eye of faith? You gave Your only beloved Son, Your heart’s treasure, to be despised on earth, in the deepest lowliness, in contempt, to bear grief, death, and the curse; You allowed Him to be trodden under the foot of sinners, that Your enemies, Your despisers, might not be lost. Oh Lord! Give us the eye of faith; give us a heart to understand heavenly things; let us but be aware of a part of Your, and Your Son our Savior’s overflowing mercy; then shall we forever be removed into Your comfort, and show forth Your praise in time and in eternity. Give us to understand the true nature of sin, so that the name of Jesus may be precious to us above all things. Declare unto us something of the riches of Your compassion, of the stability of Your truth, of the unchangeableness of Your promises, of the all-sufficiency of the holy sacrifice of Golgotha, and especially of our own nothingness and our deep guilt, that it may lead us to depend daily on You, and to look to You for grace, as our only means of existence. Oh, Lord! Guard us from hypocrisy, which is an abomination to You. Let Your grace and truth dwell within us, that we may never, like the foolish virgins, call in vain: “Lord, Lord, open to us!” Grant us a pure, sincere, and upright heart, a spirit free from guile, a single eye! But if we are without the humble, childlike spirit; if, instead of truth itself, we have only the words of truth; and if we have only as yet attained to that degree of knowledge and sense which leaves us unfruitful, slothful, cold, proud, impure, without the daily fervent communion of prayer with You, without chastisement, without desire for sanctification; then remove the scales from our eyes, and break the white sepulcher of our hearts, that from it we may run in terror, and fall in sincere contrition at Your feet to acknowledge from the deepest heartfelt experience, that You are perfect grace and truth. Then shall we, oppressed by hatred of sin, moved by Your unmerited

(3)

love and faithfulness, animated by Your Spirit, clothed with the garment of Your righteousness, overpowered by Your free grace, “give diligence to make our calling and election sure, for if we do this we shall never fall.” Lord, be merciful to us, and bless Your Word to us! Amen.

“What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid! How shall we that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?” Romans6:1, 2.

Guided by these words, we will consider the abuse of the doctrine of grace under the three following heads.

1. How is it possible that the abuse of the doctrine of grace is so easy, and therefore so frequent and customary?

2. That it is a crime, and therefore worthy of punishment.

3. How can a man be delivered from that error, and attain the right use of this doctrine?

And while this important subject is under our consideration, may our merciful God shed His blessing upon us, and make His truth powerful in our hearts for Christ’s sake.

Before, however, we commence a close examination of these three heads. We will make a few remarks upon the subject of grace in general. We are necessitated to do so by the words of our text, which stand in intimate connection with the preceding verses. In the fifth chapter Paul describes the riches of the grace of God in Christ Jesus. The riches of this grace are superabundantly great; so great that none can number them; yes, speech will fail if they are only reflected upon. We, miserable, condemned, cursed, sinners, can and shall be saved in the midst of all our wretchedness. We have deserved that God should take no more heed of us, but leave us to take our course the way of destruction. We have derided and despised His law, His love, His mercy, His truth, His representations, His entreaties, His calls to repentance, His earthly and spiritual blessings. Our conscience bears witness to the truth of this. It is written in burning characters which cannot be quenched, though you were to pour a sea of streams upon them. But, behold, all these sins God will overlook. The Lord of glory appeared to us, clothed in flesh and blood like ours, tangible and audible to our senses, like a human being, but poor; He veiled the rays of His Divine majesty that we might not fear Him and flee from Him; but might draw near to Him with childlike simplicity, as to our equal. Further, He stepped into the gap; He bowed Himself beneath the law, and accomplished it as an obedient servant, for love of us, and in our stead. All He said and did was performed for our benefit, and it all has a meritorious property, and is all-sufficient as an expiation. Finally, He submitted to the torments of hell and condemnation, which we have deserved, and was made a curse instead of us, and died the bitter death of a malefactor. “God made Him to be sin for us who knew no sin, that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.”

Yes, God offers a complete justification in the Son of His love, to all poor, miserable, condemned sinners. We may thus appear in His presence, not only free from the curse, from punishment and sin, but holy, righteous, guiltless, without blemish, clothed in the beaming,

(4)

spotless robe of the righteousness of our Surety, in which even the eyes of the Holy God can discern no stain of sin. We may approach the most wretched sinner, and say to him, “There is a Redeemer, a Comforter, a Surety, a Savior for you, who can fill you with the peace of God, who can pour into your breast the most blessed hopes of future glory, who can even in the midst of the valley of tears build you a habitation of peace, against which all the waves, storms, and floods in the world, will spend their strength in vain!

When his tears and prayers have been for some time answered, and he can lay hold of Jesus with the hand of faith, then the Savior plucks him as a brand from the burning, and presents him before the presence of His Father as a pardoned child of God, to whom all things have worked together for good. Mark! Not merely for his salvation, but for his good! It is true that we lost much—no all by Adam’s sin. The image of God was destroyed, and we are reduced to so powerless a state, that we cannot stretch forth the withered hand to pluck the fruit from the tree of life. But behold! Listen! Be astonished, and pray! There is a free grace of God, which without any respect of persons, can save to the uttermost, and pardon sins of the deepest dye! We speak to all sinners—to old sinners, to young sinners, to adulterers, thieves, murderers, slanderers, blasphemers, the voluptuary, the deceiver, and the Sabbath breaker—however deformed and soiled by sin, though they may deserve eternal condemnation a thousand fold, we call to you aloud, our heart impressed with the sincerest love for your souls: You may now be delivered from all your guilt, yes even today you may gain justification of life in Jesus Christ.

You need bring nothing of your own; you can be cured permanently and gratuitously of all your own sins and misdeeds; Jesus will absolve you from all; and give you forgiveness of sins, a new birth, faith, sanctification, safety and glorification; He will save you, convert, justify, favor, and bless you; yes, He will dwell in you, and walk in you, and you shall be in Him what He was and is, the holy and beloved One of God!

O my brethren, how blessed is the man, who, overcome by this free grace, is removed out of himself and incorporated with Christ. His grace swallows up all our sins, and all our evil, like a fathomless sea; and introduces all the treasures of heavenly glory into our souls. This grace raises us above all cares, and leads us to repose in the depths of the eternal love of God; this grace finishes the work begun in us; and never ceases from correcting, healing, strengthening, and blessing us; it screens, and arms us against all the enemies of our salvation; it helps us to bear our cross; it conducts us through the narrow path of death, to the regions of eternal glory; it constitutes our song of praise throughout eternity.

Then what shall I say, my brothers and sisters, but that whoever is born of this blessed mother, to the light of life; whoever has experienced anything of the riches of its tenderness and truth, and has truly been convinced, by the light of God’s Word, of the depth and extent of his wretched condition, must feel that it is impossible to describe the value of this grace. We cannot sufficiently appreciate its unspeakable value; the most ardent songs of praise are but poor and weak in comparison. And yet it is a melancholy truth, which bears fearful testimony to the deep corruption of the human heart that though the prophets and apostles zealously applied themselves to guard this precious doctrine from corruption, yet it was necessary at all times, notwithstanding and it is to the present day, to preach with unabated zeal against its abuse.

(5)

1. We have already said that this abuse of the doctrine of the free grace of God in Christ Jesus is very easy. Is it truly thus? If I am in danger of sinking in a deep and muddy stream and a

compassionate savior throws himself into the water and rescues me at the hazard of his own life; should I forget my preserver and his deed of love, and throw myself afresh into the stream, the depths of which threatened to destroy me? Should I not rather, all my life long, be eager to testify my gratitude to my faithful benefactor? Should I not anxiously avoid the dark stream and its frightful depths, and sincerely hate and abhor it?

Oh my brethren, whoever has experienced real grace, who knows grace in its true character, and sees clearly that the Lord might justly have left him to perish, but that He has saved him, out of His free mercy, by the offering up of His own life; and not only that, but has also chosen him from the foundation of the world, looked upon him as a righteous child of God, and made him blessed to all eternity; he ought to dread nothing so much as a continuance in sin, and daily desire nothing more fervently than to be faithful to this Savior until death. But, truly, this experience does not fall to the lot of every man, and hence the abuse of it.

Men talk about free grace without having the slightest acquaintance with it from personal experience; instead of living in the element of grace, they have nothing but a mere head knowledge, or a superficial perception of it in their hearts; a complete break with the world, the flesh, and the devil, has not yet taken place; the conscience sleeps the sleep of death, and Christ is regarded as a mere substitute, whom the sinner thinks will make up the deficiency of his own fancied merit. Thus the abuse of this doctrine becomes very easy. When the whole head, the whole heart is filled with false premises, how can we be surprised that they should lead to the most false—no, infamous conclusions? What wonder is it that such a man, who chatters about grace without having become acquainted with it from heartfelt experience, with the tears of repentance, should appropriate the kindness of this Redeemer to himself, in such a manner as to leave his heart and life unchanged.

Only imagine to yourself a man who has yet to learn his deeply sinful condition in the sight of God. He hears how Christ has atoned for all; how He has offered a perfect sacrifice for the salvation of sinners, that His blood washes out all sin; that nothing further remains to be completed; that man must be saved by free grace, without the merit of works; he hears, that all which serves to advance a godly life and walk, must be bestowed by the Savior; and that we can do literally nothing without Him. The sinner’s own inability is to him welcome intelligence; it is like an agreeable pillow to repose on. “This,” thinks he “may be turned to some account.” “You have sinned,” says he to himself, “consequently the Savior belongs to you, He has blotted out your sins; His merits, His righteousness, are yours.”

He torments himself, and labors to bring his opinions to these truths; he appeals as being entirely orthodox to the promises of the Word of God; he believes himself called to repel all the accusations of the law, and of his own conscience, and allows himself to go on quite smoothly, as though everything were in the best possible condition. He has perhaps wept once over his sins; has accused himself, by a few strong expressions, as a lost sinner; has experienced the insufficiency of his own resolutions, and has deduced from a superficial insight into the demands of the law that he cannot stand before God in his present state.
(6)
He now places Christ before him, and firmly persuades himself that he belongs to the elect of

God and that none can have anything against him. He troubles not himself as to whether he daily

experiences the workings of grace in his heart, whether he is become a new creature, and sin is destroyed within him; he thinks that in his own perception of the doctrine of grace, and in the humble acknowledgments which he makes of his necessity of it, he possesses the fullest security that he belongs to the people of God; and considers—truly in a manner which excites horror when closely viewed—that this and every other declaration of the Bible may be brought forward to justify his apparent Christianity. Yes, he may perhaps be a zealous advocate for free grace; while he himself is still lying under the wrath of God, and has no spark of grace in his heart.

Perhaps you think that this abuse of the doctrine of grace is of infrequent occurrence, By no means. Most men are sick with the same disease. Why is it, that you are so quiet, so careless, so happy, so confident, so gay, so merry, while you belong to the children of this world? With which do you comfort yourself? You must die; you are traveling towards eternity! You must appear before the judgment seat of God; you have broken the law of God, and deserved the wrath of the Almighty. This you cannot deny. If your mouth says, No! No! Your heart cries, Yes, Amen, it is true. How can your heart have rest while these truths are existing; while the reproaches of your conscience are loud, and warnings of death, and the judgment to come, fill your breast?

“God is gracious,” you say; and with this you try to cover your sins, and to still the goading of your conscience, as well as you can. But, in God’s name how can you believe in the grace of that God whom you despise; whose Word and commandment you reject; and whom you daily and hourly offend by your sins against Him? But you answer, notwithstanding, “God is merciful”; and thus you continue in your sins, in your impenitence, in your enmity against God; you lie and deceive, revel and rage, hate and covet, curse and swear; and spend your day in vain title tattle. Is not this abusing the grace of God? Do we not continually abuse His patience more and more, while we walk along the broad way of destruction as unconverted men?

But what shall we say of those who have really an insight into the grace of God, in the Gospel, and yet knowingly and willingly continue in their sins, or even only in one single sin? Have these hypocrites disappeared, or can we speak of such people as monsters, who are not to be met with in our country? Would to God it were so, but sad experience teaches us to the contrary. Even here, among us in this country, where the knowledge of Christianity has the pre-eminence; where it is less subject to reproach than elsewhere; where the name of the Lord Jesus is acknowledged, even in our neighborhood, it is beyond all things necessary to warn you against the abuse of the doctrine of grace.

Even here there is a very large number of such, who have certainly the appearance of leading a godly life, while they deny the power of it, and declare by their actions, that though they can talk fluently about free grace they have always resisted its chastisement, which would have subdued their ungodly dispositions. Alas! There are but few who earnestly engage in a determined warfare against sin. Most people content themselves with mere knowledge, thoughts, feelings, acknowledgments, and speeches; while they, more or less, willfully turn the comforting truths of the Gospel into a pillow for their sins to rest upon. Thus the free grace of God is extolled by

(7)

many who openly continue in their sins; and publicly mark themselves, by their pride or

indolence; by their judging arrogance and uncharitable speeches; by their fraud and reveling; by

their falsehood, avarice, and other vices, as men who know not the true life in grace.
We meet with many people who are zealous defenders of the truth, while in the observance of their domestic and civil duties they come far behind the great mass of the carnally minded and careless children of the world. They are always extolling the Savior, His merits, His free mercy, while they daily make Him the servant of sin. Men are anxious, truly, to be preserved from the curse, from the final punishment of sin; but they submit to the dominion of this or that sin, without any serious combat. And if men are urgently called to combat sin, they call it all legality, while they make the Gospel, in a carnal manner, favor their indolence and impurity, and run the doctrine of grace into an intoxicating draught, against the voice of the law and of their conscience.

Alas! The number of those who are true believers, and who in all points grow up to the full measure of the stature of Christ, living in the element of free grace, with the greatest purity, is very small; many, many hearts are filled with the leaven of the Pharisees; and the dangerous disease of the abuse of the doctrine of grace is an epidemic which snatches away numberless victims.

2. But this is very melancholy—it cries to heaven, it is beyond all measure lamentable. For what is as criminal as for man to degrade Jesus to the rank of a servant of sin, and His Gospel to be a passport for all immorality, to a resting place for his own indolence? What! Has the Son of God trembled and mourned beneath the weight of your sins? Has He endured the floods of torment, and the pains of hell? Has He, forsaken by God, hung upon the cross, and breathed out His precious life there, in order that you might in carnal indolence serve dead idols? Behold, the Eternal God opens His whole heart to you; He follows you, in all your goings; He blesses and delights you in a thousand different ways; He sets before you the most splendid offers for the redemption of your soul; He sends His Divine grace to meet you; and is ready, like a tender mother, to take care of you, to refresh you; and yet you continue with your dead heart to praise his love with your mouth, yet turning this same love into a cloak for your wickedness.

What are these sins which you commit? Are they not, as it were so many blows from your hand, directed against the infinite love of God? Are they not like the traitor kiss of Judas, worthy of the deepest abhorrence? You say, “God has chosen me, saved me, regenerated me; He has snatched me as a brand from the burning; He has forgiven me my sins; He has received me among the number of His elect, and has embraced me with His free grace.”

If God has done all this for you, how can you endure the thought of daily crucifying your merciful Redeemer afresh, and causing him to mourn? Talk not of your awakening, talk not of the grace of God; you have as yet never known the hellish nature of sin, nor have you experienced the true meaning of pardon. If the Lord has chosen, saved, favored, and blessed you, should you not in deep humility bow yourself to the dust? Your heartfelt love for God, who has thus loved you, should daily incite you to gratitude: “For to this end has God chosen us,” says Paul, “that we should be holy and unblameable before Him in love.” If you can so far abuse the Gospel of the grace of God, as to bear to continue even in one single sin, without contrition,

(8)
striving, and fighting against it, and without the most earnest wish to subdue it; you are a dreadful hypocrite, and your sins are by far more hateful and abominable than the sins of those who do not possess your knowledge.
If, however, the abuse of the doctrine of grace is such a horrible and crying sin, such an unnatural wickedness, its punishment will likewise be fearful. We see a proof of this in Judas Iscariot, the traitor. This ungodly wretch imagined that he was in the favor of Jesus, and belonged to the number of His elect; but he deceived himself, it was not so. He was in secret alliance with sin. He was devoted to avarice; and he coveted, and stole, under the very eyes of Him whose disciple he pretended to be. He even journeyed about with the other Apostles; preached the name of Jesus; and who knows but that he was not more conversant with the doctrines of the Gospel than the rest of the Apostles put together?

But what did it avail him? Discord gnawed at his vitals; an evil conscience tormented him as often as he came under his Master’s eye; a warning from the lips of his Lord sounded in his ear, as the thunder of the judgment; until at last the flames of despair; which consumed his vitals, burst forth—until he, finally, in the grasp of this despair, put an end to himself with horror and dread.

Yes, if you apprehend the doctrine of grace, only carnally; if you leave it as a useless treasure of knowledge, to dwell only in the head, instead of within the heart; if you lend but a finger to Satan, while you pretend to be giving your whole hand to Jesus, and are knowingly and willfully under the dominion of the least appearance of sin; then you are on the direct road which Judas took to eternal damnation. The abuse of this doctrine is the most dreadful ingratitude, the most fearful mockery of the living God, which men can commit—the most hateful insult which we can show to the Lord. What wonder is it that the Lord, who will not be mocked, threatens it with the most dreadful punishments?

3. Yes! Our compassionate God guards and warns us, that we may not in future receive our portion with the hypocrites. He assists us in His mercy, which we may be secured from the abuse of His grace, and may attain to the right and proper use of it. How does this appear? How are we to attain to it? We will shortly, in the last place, consider this. We have seen already how this abominable sin is very easy to commit; how common it is; and how criminal, and therefore how worthy of punishment. If you have attentively and considerately followed what has been hitherto said, you will have remarked, that we spoke not so much of the abuse of grace itself, as of the abuse of the doctrine of grace. There is a wide difference between the two.

The doctrine of grace may be viewed in a false, sinful light, and looked at only on one side, so as to have no influence—at least, no deep, essential influence—upon the reason and actions of the man. But is this possible with grace itself? “God forbid,” says Paul, “that we who are dead to sin should live any longer therein!” True grace contains a death blow to all sin, and a powerful incitement to all goodness. Whoever has truly found grace in the eyes of the Lord, has seen sin in all its most hateful forms, and knows its curse, its deserving of condemnation, and has engaged in warm combat against it; bearing a bitter hatred towards it in his heart, and not even having any inward desire in his soul but this, to consecrate his whole heart, his whole life to the Lord, who has in so unmerited a manner saved him, and drawn him to Himself.
(9)

But whoever can grieve this Eternal Comforter, by even one single sin; whoever can reconcile his heart to take pleasure in any sinful deed or desire, has placed a phantom, an airy conception

of his brain, in the stead of real grace; and does not belong to those who have experienced the grace of God, and are become partakers of it. If you wish then to be freed from the abuse of grace, and to attain to the right use of it, behold I can give you no other advice than this: Learn to know the grace of God by experience. In grace alone, where it is in truth experienced lays all saving power. Learn to see what you are in the sight of God; what you deserve according to His law; learn to know, how it is only through His free mercy that your salvation can be affected; and that He has affected it. You must descend from the proud height of your imagined righteousness, until you know yourself, as Paul did, to be the chief of sinners, who has deserved everlasting wrath, curse, damnation, and hell; but who is not worthy of the least benefit from God.

When you have learned this in deep humility, then the grace of God will become great and precious to you; then you will perceive what a hateful hellish monster all sin, and every sin, is; then it will be your chief desire daily and hourly to destroy all and each sin; yes, then will your heart lay hold of the free grace of God, so that in the deepest heartfelt humility, love, and thankfulness, you will offer yourself as a living sacrifice for the great love with which the Lord has loved you, and will ever love you.

Means of grace are not lacking to us. If it is the real intention of your heart—and not only of your lips—to attain to grace; if the Spirit of God has kindled a longing after God in you, then you will faithfully employ the Word of God, prayer, and the holy sacraments; and avoid all occasions of sin, and frivolous, vain, worldly society; and strive with all your efforts, and all the powers at your command, to attain the goal—the everlasting blessedness of your soul.

Thus we return anew to begging and entreating you, and admonishing you in Christ’s stead: “be reconciled to God.” No longer reject the saving hand of your Surety; fall at His feet, and become His blessed heritage. With all the riches of His house, with all the precious blood-bought treasures of His kingdom, with all His most holy merits, with his spotless righteousness, with endless peace, with joy which infinitely outweighs all earthly pleasures, the Everlasting Comforter appears before your soul to crown it with grace and mercy. Oh, receive the presence of this bountiful Lord. Draw Him towards yourself with all the treasures of His grace, and He will establish, strengthen, and settle you in the blessed experience, that His grace shall never depart from you, or the covenant of His peace fail.

To know grace is to know the word of God in our hearts!

Ac.20:24 and then seen again in verse 32, fulfilled in verse 28:  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. So that we can become as He is and abide in Him and He abides in us through His living Words to us, Jn.6:63 for they only are the words of Life to us seen in verse 68! Which is the Word of God, which all mankind must obey to be with Him for forevermore, Mt.4:4! To know Jesus is to know God, 1 Tm.3:16 so that mankind can worship in Spirit and in His Truths, Jn.4:23-24; for they are one in the same, Jn.10:30 and when we have looked upon Jesus we have looked upon God with us, Mt.1:23, which is Grace and Truth, Jn.1:17! Who is God, Jn.1:1; Just as Jesus said, “If we believe in God then we are to believe in Him, Jn.14:1, if it were not true He would have told us so! Jesus is the I Am, Jn.8:58 that was before Abraham, and if we do not know Him and who He is we cannot worship Him in Spirit and in Truth, Jn.4:24 and we too will die in our sins. Jn.8:24! If you know Jesus, you know the Father and have seen Him in Jesus, Jn.14:7-ffs. This is how Jesus reveals himself to those who are His, 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. To see the gory of God all we have to do is look in the face of Jesus, 2 Cor.4:6; who is the very image of the invisible God, who is A Spirit, Jn.4:24 and being God is Holy, Lev.11:44-45 and 1 Pt.1:14-16! It is more than obvious who then God must be, and if He is not in us, and the Spirit of Jesus who is our God, is not in us we are still none of His yet still, Ro.8:9! Take heed repent and show forth works of repentance Ac.26:19-20 of Jesus’ will; He will come and remove your candlestick, Rev.2:5! we each will be rewarded for our own works, Rev.22:12. Not one word our of this word will pass away, Mt.24:35 all of it will be brought to bear upon our lives, and who we interpret it will be seen by how our lives are conducted, and if our opinions do not line up with His we will be found to be liars, Ro.3:4, we cannot add to these words or take away, or we will be taken out of the book of life or the plagues that were written in it will be added unto our lives, Rev.22:18-19!Walk in Him and in His words or find yourself as a trespasser and a hypocrite, who is the least in the Kingdom of God Mt.5:19, seen where the rich man ended up in the story of “the Rich man and Lazarus, in Lk.16:19-31! Take heed and do the first works or Jesus will come and remove your candlestick from its place, Rev.2:5! God changes not, Mal.3:6 and is the same yesterday, today, tomorrow, and forevermore, Heb.13:8! Seek Him today while He maybe found, for tomorrow maybe too late to learn His ways, because 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. 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. Those who do will find Him and His Grace which is for the children of God who hear His words and live by them, Jn.8:47, will be seen to live out their lives as in these following verses; 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!
