Are We Walking in the Ways of God?

 If not we are not a True disciple of Jesus Christ, or you would-be found in agreement with His words to us as well as all the Apostles words, Jn.15:20; Jn.14:15!

Eph.5:25Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; 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!

 Before we make such blanket terms of Salvation we must ask ourselves have we done all that we are required to do to receive Jesus’ Salvation (1 Cor.10:21-22; and 1 Cor.11:31-32)? We must present ourselves to Him in perfection, which is only obtained by living in His words to us, Jn.8:51Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death. That is why Jesus said this in Lk.6:46And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?

Did we do as the men did who asked Peter what must be done for them to receive salvation? As seen in 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? Why should we do as the Apostles say any ways? Jesus said if we would keep His sayings, we would keep theirs too: 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. You see Jesus gave the Apostles the keys to loosen or to bind on earth and even in heaven (Mt.16:19 as seen in 1 Pt.2:4-12, but beware, see Mt.21:44!), and they were ordained by Jesus in verse 16 here! They have His authority because Jesus knew He was going to pour out His Holy Spirit into them on the day that His True Church was created on the day of Pentecost seen in the Holy Scriptures that were Holy Spirit inspired (2 Tm.3:16-17), seen in 2 Pt.1:19-21 and 1 Pt.9-11, who is the “Day Star.” As we look back to the day when about three thousand members said, “What must we do” to the Apostles of Jesus Christ in Ac.2:37? The answer was given and it has not and never will be changed by anyone ever! We see the Apostles answer for they all stood with Peter here in one accord! The answer given was this: Ac.2:38Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 39For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the LORD our God shall call. 40And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation.

This is exactly what Jesus was saying in Jn.3:3Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. 4Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? 5Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 6That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. 8The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

This was explained to us by the Apostle Paul as well 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. 10And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.

Without the Baptism of the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ living in you; you are still none of His yet still! Unless we have His Spirit we cannot have His mind seen in 1 Cor.2:1-16 and without His mind we have no thought to how we consider His written words to us unless we have Him who wrote it living in us to show us which way He wants to blow us in our lives. We will be still be in our will, without the true interpreter in us to show us His Truths that are required to walk as he determines for our lives, according to His scriptures, He has given to us to cleanse us, Jn.15:3 as we follow Him in word and in deed in everything that we do and say, Col.3:17. Many will look for the right way to go and will not be able to find it as seen in Mt.7:13Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

Only when we are baptized in His Spirit (Jn.14:18) in us can we decipher His words to us line upon line as seen in Is.28:9Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. 10For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little: 11For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people (Ac.2:1-4). 12To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear (Today’s Emerging Church, who say speaking in tongues is not for us today, even when the Apostle Paul has said to us in; 1 Cor.14:39Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues.).

Or you will end up as one of these here in verse 13:13But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.

Do you or have you spoken in a heavenly language, has the gifts of the Holy Spirit been confirmed in your life as seen in 1 Cor.1:1Paul called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, and Sosthenes our brother, 2Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both their’s and our’s: 3Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. 4I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ; 5That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge; 6Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you: 7So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ: 8Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord. 10Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

Having the same gospel speaking of one accord knowing who Jesus really is, by having a conversion in your life that has transformed your soul, with a heart of love, regenerated into His fashioning. This is what was talked about in Rev.19:10And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus, worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy!

That we may know that when we worship Jesus we are worshipping the Father manifested in the flesh of Jesus Christ as shown to us by Jesus, Himself in Jn.14:7-18 or we do not worship Him in Spirit and in Truth, His Truths, that is required unless we know Jesus as the I Am, seen in Ex.3:14 as well as Jn.8:58 as He revealed to us Himself seen in Mt.11:25At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes. 26Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight. 27All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him. 28Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me (2 Pt.3:18); for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

As we do what Jesus said to do here and learn of Him and then we will know Him in Spirit and in His Truths, Jn.4:23-24! God is the Holy Spirit manifested in the flesh as seen in 1 Tm.3:16And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory. Only when we know Jesus as the Almighty God, seen in Is.9:6 who is the Eternal Father, as well as the Prince of Peace, can we know who John the Baptist baptized as revealed in scripture 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.

Every Jew in the History of man has always known only One God as seen in Deu.6:4Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: 5And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. 6And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: 7And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.

That is why a Trinitarian will never win a Jew to Christ Jesus unless you can show him Jesus is the Messiah, the Anointed One, who is from above (Jn.8:23-24)! Who is God revealed in the flesh the Holy One seen in Lk.1:35, who then is the Begotten God in the Greek original writings of Jn.1:18, who is in the bosom of the Omnipresent Holy Spirit who is God as told to us by Jesus in Jn.4:24! This is also seen in scripture in Is.44:6Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his (Israel’s) Redeemer the LORD of hosts; I AM the first, and I AM the last; and beside me there is no God!

This is shown a number of times all they way through the Holy Bible as well, just as God said let there be light in Gen.1:3, Jesus is that light, Jn.8:12, every time God said anything about Himself to identify Himself Jesus used the same symbolism to identify Himself as well! Seen in Mk.12:29And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: 30And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. 31And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. 32And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he: 33And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices. 34And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. And no man after that durst ask him any question.

Jesus is the door to the Kingdom of God, the Kingdom of God was standing right in front of the scribe who answered discreetly! Just as Jesus did when He told every one how to repent for the Kingdom of God was at hand in Mt.4:17From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. Just as seen in Mt.12:28But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you. As well as Lk.11:20But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you. Whose finger is Jesus using? God’s, because God said in Isaiah that He would not ever give His glory 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. See also 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. 12Hearken unto me, O Jacob and Israel, my called; I AM He; I AM the First, I also am the Last. Jesus has shown us time and time again the glory of God manifested in Him Jn.11:40 (see verses also 24-26), 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 (Jesus’) feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. 17And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? 18There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger. 19And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole.

These scriptures were shown to us by the apostle Paul who was taught by Jesus in the deserts of Arabia for three years, near Damascus; as we look to scripture to see God in Jesus by the glory of God being seen in Jesus’ face; 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 was shown by Paul again to us in 1 Cor.2:1And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God: 2For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.

3And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling. 4And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: 5That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.

 6Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: 7But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: 8Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

Jesus is the bread that came down from heaven which they did eat in the wilderness, but Jesus that we all must eat to have life eternal by knowing Him, Jesus, is the very will of God made flesh, which is the Word of God made flesh as seen in Jn.1:1-14 and only those who know who Jesus is can be they who are manifested to be born again of God seen in Jn.1:12But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. Who have been purchased by the blood of the Holy Spirit seen in Ac.20:28Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. The Holy Spirit has no blood until He fashioned Himself in a seed of Mary the seed of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and to the Tribe of Judah was it promised the Messiah would come, 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.

This was revealed to us in Rev.1:7Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. 8I am Alpha (The First) and Omega (The Last), the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty (Is.9:6).

as we look to scripture again in Rev.1:12And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; 13And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. 14His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; 15And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. 16And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged 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: 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.

Our Jesus as seen in Is.49:24Shall the prey be taken from the mighty, or the lawful captive delivered? 25But thus saith the LORD, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered: for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee, and I will save thy children. 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 (Al) mighty One of Jacob! Jesus is the bread of life that we must adhere to or we shall never dwell with Him seen in Mt.4:4But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. The words that Jesus were given to Him by the Father who lives in the flesh of Jesus, who is all God and all man, Jn.6:63! Seen in scripture; 1 Tm.3:16And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory. To see Jesus is to see the One God in the flesh as seen in Jn.12:45And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me. For the Father and Jesus are One! Jn.10:30I and my Father are one. The Jews picked up stones to stone Jesus for God had revealed to them that he was their Messiah, the one who was to come and rule over them and show them the way to God’s own Kingdom that was to live in them, for it is not a material Kingdom, but will be in us, as it was in Jesus, who is the gateway, to eternity, Jn.14:6Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

   7If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him! 8Philip saith unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us. 9Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father?

10Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. 11Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me (How can God the Father be in Jesus unless God is the Holy Spirit indwelling Jesus as well as He is supposed to be in us 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.): Or else believe me for the very works’ sake. Are we gifted with his works in us, Lk.18:7-8? This is faith that is put in action must have confirmational works, Jn.14:14!

If we know who Jesus is greater things than He did we can do also, if we have His Holy Spirit in us, who will confirm His presence in us as seen in the Epistles, for the epistles were written for those whom His Holy Spirit, had been confirmed in them to have been anointed in the gifts of the Holy Spirit, seen in 1 Cor.1:1Paul called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, and Sosthenes our brother, 2Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both their’s and our’s: 3Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. 4I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ; 5That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge; 6Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you: 7So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ: 8Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ!

Have we proved that we are Jesus’ by His Spirit manifesting Himself in us? We are called to prove all things and to refrain from the very appearances of all evil (1 Thes.5:21-22!) to be seen as Righteous and Holy vessels of God living in us, for the Kingdom of God to be seen 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. 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.

That is why if we are not seen as one of these seen in the book of 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.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!

If we have not had this experience, we are not one of Jesus’ yet still for God changes not, Mal.3:6 and He is the same yesterday, today and forevermore, Heb.13:8! He gave this for a sign for all the world to know it is of His will for us to be baptized into His Baptism the one baptism Paul talked about in Eph.4:3Endeavouring 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 (Jn.1:17, see Ac.11:15-18, from Ac.10:44-48 as evidence givne of God’s Repentance, His gift of Grace to us, which is jesus’ Spirit in us, Ro.8:9! One of the few chosen, Mt.7:14; 20:16 and 22:14!), 7But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ!

This was and is still the unity of the true Apostolic Church of the Living God in Jesus Christ, who is both LORD and the CHRIST, Ac.2:36 as well as LORD of ALL, Ac.10:36; by which all Salvation comes (Jn.5:39) by being baptized in His name only as seen in scripture, Ac.4:12, for there is no other name or way in which we can find salvation but in the way the Apostles’ who had the keys to heaven have shown us in scripture, Ac.2:37Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? 38Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 39For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the LORD our God shall call. 40And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation.

When we get all this done by and with a pure heart being one with our LORD in word and in deed (Amos3:3), Col.3:17 and by keeping to all scripture so we can be found perfect in all works (2 Tm.3:16-17), thoroughly furnished with all scripture living in us which cleanses us, Jn.15:3 from our filth of this world that lies in wickedness, 1 Jn.5:19, then and only then can we begin to live in unity with our Lord and Saviour as one; seen in Jn.17:1-ffs! Only then after knowing the cost of Discipleship can we weigh the costs and see if repentance is at all possible in our lives, because it only comes from a pure heart and a made up mind as a loving servant; looking to please only Jesus and to serve Him as He served us with all His life; we too are required to do the same as He did or we are not really followers of Him at all! We will be found as one of these who worship a god of their own making (Ro.3:4), as St. John warned about in 1 Jn.5:21, for not knowing the “One True God” seen in 1 Jn.5:20! Not some persons of some imaginary philosophy of men’s teachings called a “Holy Trinity” that is a sure way to Hells gate, worshipping men’s teachings as commandments of God as seen in Is.29:13Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men: 14Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid. As Jesus referred to in Mt.15:7Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, 8This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. 9But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

We either listen to those who had the Keys to heaven or we perish listening to Luther, to Calvin, to Origin, to Tertullian and to a whole host of others called the Forefathers of the Roman Catholic Church who have changed dates and times as well as Dogma of the Apostle’s who are the only ones who Jesus gave the right to set Dogma or Doctrines to begin with, seen in Mt.7Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, 8This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. 9But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. This goes for any age it is happening in!

We are not our own, we who have been baptized into the glorious name of Jesus our Christ, we are His to do with what He will’s for our lives, this in fulfilling Jn.3:8, for our lives! We are to lay down our lives for Him and the gospel (Mk.8:34-38), in order to be seen worthy of Him. 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! Have we really forsaken all? Have we given up on the worldy pleasures of the flesh in our lives? The flesh wars against the Holy Spirit, Gal.5:16This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. 17For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. 18But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.

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.

No one can receive this message unless they have been born of a supernatural Spirit regenerating them into His likeness, only they who are born of God can be found as one of those seen in 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! This (His chosen few!) are seen as one of these too, Mt.5:8Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. As well as 2 Tm.2:19Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let every one 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. 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.

Unless we walk in the scriptures as our instructions in our lives we do not have Favour or God’s grace, for the word of God is His grace to us, Ac.20:24 and verse 32 shows us these things, and we can only do these things when His spirit leads us into His Truths. Our Lord God made it impossible for the world to come to Him unless they have put on Christ Jesus and He is formed in us, Gal.4:19, for He is the wisdom and power of God in us, 1 Cor.1:24 seen in 2 Cor.5:19To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. 20Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God. 21For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

Without His regeneration, we cannot be Holy or Righteousness which is required to be a Saint, Holy (hagiois, Strong’s # 40) Vessel of Gold or of God, 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. As well as 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! This is the word that the world cannot receive because it knows not who Jesus is, as testified by St. John in 1 Jn.3:1Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. 2Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. 3And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure. 4Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. 5And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin. 6Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him. 7Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. 8He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. 9Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. 10In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother. 11For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another. 12Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous. 13Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you. 14We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death. 15Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him. 16Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. 17But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him? 18My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth. 19And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him. 20For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things. 21Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God. 22And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight. 23And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment. 24And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us. 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.

Only they the doers of the word of God are found to be one of these, Jn.8:51Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death. Lk.11:28But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it. Fait in the Lord is shown by us walking as He walked while on this earth, or we are walking in our own beliefs and our ways are not His 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 (Prov.12:15; Prov.14:12 and Prov.16:25!): 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.

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. 18Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. 19Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. 20But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? 21Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? 22Seest thou how faith wrought (is forged) with his works, and by works was faith made perfect (See Ac.26:19-20)? 23And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. 24Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. 25Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way? 26For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also!

If we walk as the world walks we are still in the world of wickedness, 1 Jn.5:19 and we will find ourselves an enemy of God as well, Jms.4:1From whence come wars and fightings among you? Come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members? 2Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. 3Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. 4Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. 5Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain: The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy? 6But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. 7Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. 9Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. 10Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.

Have we humbled ourselves unto all scripture in our lives? If not we are in our filth still. We will have no part of the inheritance or the heritage of the divine promises unless we bear His name in our lives; or we will have no right to the promises, will we? Therefore, “Thus sayeth our LORD God:”

Rev.2:4Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. 5Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.

Are We Really Bearing His Fruits?

Are We Really Bearing His Fruits?

Are we bearing fruit by multiplication of increased numbers and family members? Or are we multiplying the members into the Kingdom of God? In other words are we raising Cain’s or Abel’s (or should it be “ABLE”, are we going to be able to complete our race correctly)?

Only Abel’s and the line of Seth will enter into the Lord’s Kingdom, whose family are we grafted into, is it Abraham’s?

If we do not bear Jesus’ name at Baptism we aren’t getting into His Kingdom are we?

Faith is only faith when it has works; otherwise it is only beliefs; and beliefs never got any one in to Heaven!

Jn.14:15If ye love me, keep my commandments.

Jn.8:51Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death.

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

 

Yes unfortunately people lose sight of that fact, that when we come to the Lord, we are no longer our own to do with as we please and that we have been bought with a price we can never repay but with our own lives dedicated to Him for His service (Holiness, holy is the same word in the Greek language for a Saint of God!): If we are to be a Temple for Him to dwell in, (1 Cor.3:16-17; 1 Cor.6:19-20; and 2 Cor.6:14-18!). This cannot be done unless we die to self; this was supposed to have taken place in our baptism as seen in Ro.6:1What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? 2God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? 3Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? (How can we be baptized into Jesus unless we have His name being given to us in our death to self? So we can be raised out of the water of death and the grave and come up in newness of Eternal Life in Jesus; for there is no other name given by which Salvation comes, Ac.4:12; See Ac.2:38-39!) 4Therefore we are buried with Him (Jesus) by baptism into His death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life (To go and sin no more as seen in scripture, Jn.8:11 or a worse thing will come upon you, Jn.5:14!). 5For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death (The New Testament Covenant), we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection (To have dominion over sin and the powers of this world around us, 1 Jn.4:4!): 6Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin! 7For he that is dead is freed from sin. 8Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him (In Spirit and in Truth, Jn.4:23-24!): 9Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over Him. And all of us who have been purchased with His blood; Ac.20:28Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers (That means you and I here! We are the Temples of the living God in us!), to feed the church of God, which He hath purchased with His own blood!

We all must die to self!

Unless we die to self and live only for Jesus and live according to His words which clean us (Jn.15:3), from our filth of a sinful life (By obedience to His words to us!) we too cannot bear His fruits, unless we die to self and pick up our crosses and dying daily (We die daily anyways, we were born with this fatal disease but are we dying for Jesus and His Gospel work? Mk.8:34-38!), for the reaching of the lost and spreading the gospel; if not, we are not fulfilling what it is we are here on this earth to do with our live (Lk.17:7-10); as seen in Mk.8:34And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. 35For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it! 36For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? 37Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? 38Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels. See also Mk.12:28-34.

What we do with our lives (Proves our Faith in God and His words to us!), and this will follow us all the way to judgment day, because God will not be mocked and every word we say in idle conversation will be held to our account, Mt.12:36-37, (Therefore let us speak only the oracles of God, 1 Pt.4:11!), seen as well in Rev.14:12Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. 13And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit; that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them! Seen also in Rev.22:6And he said unto me: These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done. 7Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book. 8And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things. 9Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God. 10And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand. 11He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. 12And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be! 13I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. 14Blessed are they that do his commandments; that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. 15For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie (Who do not keep the words of this Holy Bible all of them, not just the ones we want to keep, because the flesh wars against the Holy Spirit, Gal.5:16-18! This is the main subject of Roman’s chapter 8 as well!). 16I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches (Heb.1:7 and Ps.104:4-5! See Mk.12:24-27!). I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and Morning Star, (Rev.2:26), (See 1 Pt.1:9-11 and 2 Pt.1:19-21). 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 (Lk.11:13). 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! (See Deu.4:1-2 go not to the right hand or the left, Deu.5:31-32 and Josh.1:7: This is what is meant by Mt.7:13-14 and few that there will be that keep to the narrow path of righteousness and holiness!)

It takes all Scripture being alive in our hearts and active in our lives to be found in Righteousness & Holiness & Perfect without Spot or Wrinkle and without Blemish!

2 Tm.3:16-17

Eph.5:27

We do not get to pick and choose what scriptures we care to follow in our pursuit of His Holiness and Righteousness, for all these qualities must be in us or we will not enter into His Kingdom without them. They can only be found when we have accomplished all scripture in our lives according to His will or we are still in our life and in our own will and our ways, which are not His ways as seen in Is.55:6Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: 7Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. 8For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. 9For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. That is why we must obey His words to us, it is our righteousness or we are only living as we lived before and have in that case never really repented, have we? Can two walk together unless they agree? Amos 3:3, neither can we agree with our Lord and Saviour unless we walk as Jesus walked on this earth (Jn.14:6)! We can’t do that unless He is alive in us, for it will be Him in us who does the works, by the power of His wisdom and His will for us, 1 Cor.1:24, so we can be found to give glory to God by His True Son’s, Jn.1:12-13, 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. 10And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. 11But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. 12Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. 13For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live!

 14For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. 15For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. 16The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: 17And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together! If we do not allow the Holy Spirit to rule our lives we are letting the flesh rule our lives and then we find ertanal death, because we have not surrendered to thee will of the Holy Spirit in our lives, Mt.12:31-32, and unless we are found in His fields of harvest we have already begun to be found as backslidden, in His eyes! Mt.12:30, shows us this revelation!

Whom will learn Truth and Knowledge?

2 Pt.3:18

Proverbs 4

1Hear, ye children, the instruction of a father, and attend to know understanding. 2For I give you good doctrine, forsake ye not my law. 3For I was my father’s son, tender and only beloved in the sight of my mother. 4He taught me also, and said unto me, Let thine heart retain my words: keep my commandments, and live. 5Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth. 6Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee. 7Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. 8Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honour, when thou dost embrace her. 9She shall give to thine head an ornament of grace: a crown of glory shall she deliver to thee. 10Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings; and the years of thy life shall be many. 11I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths. 12When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straitened; and when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble. 13Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: keep her; for she is thy life.

The principle thing here is the understanding; the doing is showing wisdom is in place and being used, when we understand correctly, this leads to believing what you understand to be true and not a lie; by this acting upon ones beliefs that are in the truth seen of God’s will we are them found as Righteous, because we judged right and our judgment was true in word and in deed, Col3:17!

Just as seen in Is.28:9Whom shall he teach knowledge? And whom shall he make to understand doctrine? Them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. 10For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little: 11For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people! 12To whom he said: This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear.

This was shown to us for a very good reason, we are to be baptized in the glorious name of Jesus for the remission of our sin, for there is no other name by which His Salvation comes as seen in Ac.4:12. When done this way we too can be as those in the New Testament Book of Acts Church as seen in Ac.2:1And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. 3And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. 4And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance!

This is the stammering lip that was talked about by Isaiah in the 28th chapter, see earlier here.

Eph.4:30And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.

If we are not born of the water and of the Spirit we are still none of His as seen in Jn.3:3-8, without this Holy Spirit baptism with speaking in tongues, we are not sealed with His covenant and we will be seen as Justified in His Eyes: (1 Cor.6:11, Seen here His name and His Spirit allow us to be seen as justified or one who is saved and has truly found His Salvation and Repentance, Ac.11:15-18! We have no true Salvation until our race is over and we step into eternity and hear well done My faithful servant!), without His Holy Spirit being in us as seen in Ro.8:1There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. 2For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. 3For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: 4That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit! 5For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. 6For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 7Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. 8So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. 9But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, IF so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now IF any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. (See also Ro.8:10-14 for those who are led by the Holy Spirit are the true Sons of God!)

We live or die by obedience to the words of God in our lives!

2 Tm.3:16-17 in order to be found perfect, Mt.5:48 as required, to have good works!

Ac.26:19-20

Having works worthy of Repentance!

All scripture is given by the inspiration of the Holy Ghost and is our law to us in obedience to God’s words; we will either live and obey and live with Jesus for eternity or die in our flesh and be lost in Hell forever more! One or the other nothing in between! We either choose to die to self and live for Christ forevermore, following Him as required in scripture 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 (In ME), but by ME. Or die living our lives for us and our families because if we have not Jesus first in our lives before anything else, we are not worthy of Him, and we will be found as not perfect as required. Mt.5:48Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. See Mt.10:32Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. 33But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. 34Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. 35For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 36And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household. 37He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me! 38And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me! 39He that findeth his life shall lose it (Tries to gain the world and have all the pleasures of it, is not of God, 1 Jn.2:14-17; (Let your joy be turned into mourning, Jms.4:1-10): and he that loseth his life for my sake (And the gospel’s sake, Mk.8:34-38) shall find it (If we are ashamed of His word to us He will be ashamed of us and IF WE ARE ASHAMED OF our jobs to win the lost to Christ Jesus, He will find us as well shameful: Here is what a sham looks like in the eyes of our God, Dan.12:1-2!). 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.

How are we to do all this without His Spirit in us? We can’t, just that simple! Unless we have been truly been born-again, His way, as called out in His words to us given by Him and His Ordained Apostles who had the keys to heaven, which were used on the day the true church of the living God in Jesus was formed; on the day of Pentecost as seen in Ac.2:37Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? 38Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost! 39For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the LORD our God shall call (This is a promise of God, if we ask Him for it; will He not give it to us? God cannot lie, IF we have a pure heart and our motivation is right, then He will be glad to give whosoever will His Holy Spirit, Lk.11:13). 40And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation! That means come out from among them, for the world lies in wickedness (Jms.4:4), 1 Jn.5:19! That is what repentance is all about; going in a new direction with a new crowd and a new crown of Righteousness and Holiness on your head, a royal crown of God’s Grace; to not grieve the Spirit, by which you are sealed; or a worse thing will come upon you and it would have been better if you had never heard or received the word of God preached unto you!

Jesus ordained His Apostles in Jn.15:16 and told them that if we will keep His words we will keep theirs too (Jn.15:20), for they alone had the keys to heaven and they used them all on the day of Pentecost and about 3000 souls were joined to the church. Not only did Peter give his first ever sermon here but is was longer than just those verses I have shown you here, for exhorted to them with many words, to they who were in the crowd who wanting to know the way to salvation, with many more words did Peter say to them! It takes all scripture for us to live a holy and righteous lifestyle and for us to be seen as one of these here: 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. To be perfect as called out in Mt.5:48 and as seen here; 2 Tm.3:16All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works!

How can we have all scripture living in us so we can be found to be perfect and have the ability to have good works? See we are not saved by faith and grace alone. We must show works worthy of repentance, it is scriptural, as we look to scripture yet again for our guidance; which was shown to us as Apostle Paul revealed his conversion and testimony 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! As well as even Jesus’ words to us in the Book of Revelation. Revelation chapter 2 and 3 talk about the works going on in the church and how Jesus found some of their works not pleasing to Him and not perfect; if we are truly His we will be found perfect as He is perfect by the power of His Spirit revealing His Truths to us to keep us out of sin, (1 Jn.5:18). As He also has shown us that He will judge us by our works as seen in Rev.22:7Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book. 8And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things. 9Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God. 10And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand. 11He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. 12And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be! 13I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. 14Blessed are they that do his commandments (Which is every word given to us in this Holy Writting, from Gen. to Rev. Mt.5:17-20; Mt.24:35!); that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

All of this is what Paul and James were showing all those who had been converted, who had received the baptism of the Holy Spirit as shown in all the Epistles; for the Epistles were written to them who it had been confirmed to have had this experience in them. For they all had shown evidences of the confirmation of this baptism, with speaking in tongues, as well as other signs of the gifts of the Holy Spirit dwelling in them, for we are to test 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. And prove all things: 1 Thes.5:21Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. How are we to do this? Unless Jesus’ Holy Spirit lives in us, for His Spirit will lead us into all truths! This is the Spirit which the world cannot have, Jn.14:16And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever; 17Even the Spirit of truth (Jn.1:17); whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you, Jn.14:18! (Ac.2:1-4)

We can only have His Spirit when He has revealed Himself to us as seen in Mt.11:25At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes (The humble, the lowly and meek to confound the wise, Zach.3:12-13; 1 Cor.1:27!), 26Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight. 27All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him! 28Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Only if you have been born again or you can never carry His yoke, for His word to us is His yoke and it is crushing the world because they have not sought after Jesus with a pure heart; they seek Him for what He can do for them and to keep them out of Hell and this is not the right Spirit that is conducive to a pure heart. That is only a self-serving heart! Not a heart of a willing servant who is full of love for His Master is it? The heart of a willing servant that will do anything for His Master! For that is a servants job, Lk.17:7-10!

No one can know who Jesus is until they understand the Father in Jesus is the Holy Spirit who is the power of the Highest seen in Lk.1:35 for the Father is in Jesus and Jesus is the manifestation of the Eternal Father seen in (Jn.12:45), 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 Almighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Who is our God with us seen in Mt.1:23 our Emmanuel, which was made a way for by the last Old Testament Prophet of God, the Prophet John the Baptist. We see who John baptized when he baptized Jesus in the Jordan, look to Is.40:3The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God! Jesus knew who He was and why he wanted John the Baptist to baptize Him, so all righteousness could be fulfilled; this meant the word of God (The Old Testament) was to be tied directly to the New Testament, for the scripture cannot be broken, Jn.10:35, see Mt.5:17-20 and Mt.24:35!

Unless we know Jesus is our God manifested in the flesh, the One True God as St. John describes in the last verses of his 1st Epistles to us seen in the final verses here in the fifth chapter, which all the previous chapters and verses was leading up to this one end point, this eptomical (Essential) climax; he was trying to show us about Jesus: 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 (Jn.1:17), and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ (The Adopted Son of King David, God is the Son of God according to the flesh used for His manifestation, His incarnation, to be the begotten God, as seen in Jn.1:18 in many Greek original writings!): This is the (One Deu.6:4; Mk12:29, Is.40:3!) true God, and eternal life. If we do not understand Jesus is the One True God and that there is no other gods besides Him, we are worshipping in vain and have made up a religious system that is of men and not of the leading of the Holy Spirit. This is no better than what St. John warned us about in the last verse seen here as well: 21Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.

 

When we live our lives in our own fashion and it doesn’t line up with the words of God for us, we are not worshipping in Spirit and in Truth as required in Jn.4:23-24 and unless we know who Jesus is in reality of the written word of God and not of man’s vain imaginations such as this trinity doctrine which came about over 125 years after St. John had died, which was started by Tertullian and ratified at the council of Nicene in or about 225 A. D and finally ratified in or about 550 A. D. four hundred and fifty years after St. John showed us who Jesus is, (look to Jn.10:30 and 12:45 also, when you see Jesus you see the one who sent Him, He is Holy Spirit made flesh!).

The Trinity which was derived from Philosophical terms of the heathen philosophers because they could not correctly describe the Greek word ousia (Ousia (/ˈziə, ˈsiə, ˈʒ(i)ə, ˈʃ(i)ə/Greek: οὐσία) is the Ancient Greek noun formed on the feminine present participle of εἶναι (to be); it is analogous to the English participle being, and the modern philosophy adjectival onticOusia is often translated (sometimes incorrectly) to Latin as substantia and essential, and to English assubstance and essence; and (loosely) also as (contextually) the Latin word accident (sumbebekós).). Which means substance or essence as well as our metaphysical consciousness of self (To be), which is fine when speaking of natural man but our God with us is anything but natural, for He was all man but yet all Otherness and distinct (Holy) from anything we know in the natural realms of our cognition (Being). Unless we have been baptized in His Holy Spirit, we cannot truly understand Jesus in Truth and we will die in our sins; as stated in Jn.8:24I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I AM [HE] (see Ex.3:14), ye shall die in your sins. Jesus is the First and the Last and there is no other gods besides Him for He knows no other. Jesus is the I Am of Ex.3:14 as well as Jn.8:58Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I AM! What did the priest do when they heard this; that Jesus was saying to them? They started looking for stones because Jesus revealed to them He was God in the flesh, the Messiah, the Christ who was foretold who was to come, that the prophet was to make a way for seen in Is.40:3, who was their God! The Jews only know One God because that is all there can ever be is One God. Not and never will there be three! We search the scriptures for in them we hope to find salvation and truly that is why the Lord gave us His grace which is His will for us so we can know Him by His words to us, this is seen in scripture also; 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! This is another definition of God’s grace to us, which is the Gospel of God our Lord Jesus because Jesus is both LORD and the CHRIST, seen in Ac.2:36 who is LORD of ALL, seen in Ac.10:36. We search the scriptures for in them we hope to find salvation from God’s grace: Ac.20:32And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up (Sanctify you by justification in obedience to His every word to us, this is Holiness being separated unto Him only, when we are baptized in His name and have received His Holy Spirit in us, this is shown to us in 1 Cor.6:11!), and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified!

You see here that God’s grace to us is His favor, which is His mind being shown to us in his words to us; which is His will for us to live in (Jn.6:63). He has shown us who He is and what it is that we must do to be found pleasing in His eyes or in other words to be found in His will. For if we fail to see all that the Lord has shown us through His words to us and we are not obeying all scripture; because scripture cannot be broken, Jn.10:35 as Jesus has told us repeatedly. All scripture is for one reason only, that we might find salvation by knowing this one true God of ours as told to us by Jesus 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.

We will take a man’s word of today, given to us, over the last Apostle’s Word, in which his life was spent in bring salvation to all nations as required by all disciples of Jesus Christ. Who did just as the Holy Spirit instructed them to do for His Kingdom and Jesus’ glory! We will believe one of the Nicolaitanes (Roman Catholic, who preach and teach, Catholicism and Dogma of men as commandments of God, see Mt.15:7Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, 8This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. 9But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.), over one of Jesus’ true Ordained Apostle’s written Holy Spirit inspired words to us; just because they wanted to scare every one with their anathema so they could hang onto their power and position as well as their wealth and lands and dominion over governments! That is what Nico-laitane means: Nico or Niko to conquer or utterly vanquish, in this case the, Laos, meaning laity or people! This is what the priests of the Roman Catholic Church did, they conquered the body of Christ Jesus, who are the Temples of the One true Living God, not an organization! A true Apostle of Jesus Christ serves all and is the least of all, he is not one to be served by the people, but serves only Jesus and His children!

(See http://doctrinesofchrist.com/The%20Heresies%20of%20the%20Nicolaitans.pdf pages 7-8) (See also Clarence Larkin’s book Dispensational Truth page 130 fourth paragraph from the top left side. On Nicolaitanes.)

This is exactly what the Roman Catholic priests did in the dark ages is it not? This is they from which we get the Trinity doctrines from, they who said men were condemned for heresy in one age and then renowned for their teachings and philosophies in another age and vice versa, so much for the infallibility of the Pope! History stands in ready to prove my points here as well; if one will just do their own home work and quit relying on someone else to spoon feed them their salvation, the way they like it, 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!

We are to work out our own salvation with fear and trembling, Phil.2:12. We all are about to stand before our God this Lord Jesus as seen in verse 10 and give an account for what we have taught and what it is that we believe and only when we agree with scripture and not man’s teaching can we find ourselves being approved or we will see this verse being played out in our lives; 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. By our words and our actions we will be judged for its correctness by the 66 books, for they will be opened and we will be judged by the words of God (Jn.6:63) and how we perceive them to be. We were told to go and sin no more, Jn.8:11 and Jn.5:14 or a worse thing will come upon us!

Only they who Know Jesus and have been born again of His Spirit, and can be taught the truths of our Lord Jesus because only Jesus is Grace and Truth, Jn.1:17 and the word of God made flesh, Jn.1:14, which is God, Jn.1:1. Only when we have been born again of God as seen in Jn.1:12-13 can we then know how it is to be blown where The Holy Spirit will send us in His stead, Jn.3:3-8 as we know and believe in the name that is above ever name and hold only to Him as seen in Jn.3:16-18 because we bear His name at our new birth coming out of the death to self in our flesh, in the resurrection to life eternal that is only in Jesus’ name, being led by the Holy Spirit, Ro.8:1; Ac.4:12; Jn.14:14. That is why the Church of God in Jesus Christ was birthed on the day of Pentecost and some 3000 souls entered into His rest on that day and were filled with the baptism of the Holy Spirit and they spoke in tongues as well as the Apostles, for this was the sign given for this exact reason so we would know without a doubt, just as the council in Jerusalem found out as well in Ac.11:15And as I began to speak, the Holy Ghost fell on them, as on us at the beginning! 16Then remembered I the word of the Lord, how that he said, John indeed baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost. 17Forasmuch then as God gave them the like gift as he did unto us, who believed on the Lord Jesus Christ; what was I, that I could withstand God? 18When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying: Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life! That they may know Him and walk in newness of eternal life, keeping unto Him alone and his words to us! 1 Pt.1:13Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; 14As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: 15But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; 16Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. 17And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man’s work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear: 18Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; 19But with the precious blood of Christ (Ac.20:28), as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: 20Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, 21Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.

Without this experience we have no repentance of God’ wrath towards us! All we will have forward  looking to is seen in Mark chapter 9, where Jesus talked about a worm dying not and a fire which is never quenched, just as Ezekiel stated we would be the fuel for that fire as well in Eze.21:31And I will pour out mine indignation upon thee, I will blow against thee in the fire of my wrath, and deliver thee into the hand of brutish men, and skilful to destroy. 32Thou shalt be for fuel to the fire; thy blood shall be in the midst of the land; thou shalt be no more remembered: for I the LORD have spoken it. See also 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 (Very soon we who have been truly saved will be pulled up out of the way in the catching away! Then there will be no one to stand in the gap, this is the falling away of the church that is in the end of time, just before the rapture!), 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 (The great Tribulations!). As well as, 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!

God’s Repentance, the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, with evidences of speaking in tongues!

This was shown to us at Cornelius’ house (Ac.10:1-48) where the first Gentiles came to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ and Him crucified for the shedding of blood for the salvation of those whosoever will believe in Him only. There can be no forgiveness of sins without the shedding of blood, in this case a perfect sinless sacrifice was found in our Lord Jesus and only they who have received His name at death to self in the watery grave can be saved by the power that is attached to that name as seen in Mt.28:18 and if we ask anything in that name believing we can have it, it will be so, as seen in Jn.14:14. So why in all that is righteous would we let anyone baptize us any other way than by those who had the keys to heaven, seen in 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 (only if you believe it is for you as shown to us in Lk.11:13)! 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.(Many are called but few will be chosen, are you one of the few?) 40And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation.

Then comes the many more words of exhortation, the learning it takes to become a disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ; we must come out from the world that lies in wickedness, we are cleaned by the words of God, Jn.15:3, only as long as we use them in our lives, being true faithful and devoted disciples; means we follow after what Jesus has taught us in word and in deed, the way we live our lives is our worship to Him! That is worshipping Jesus in Spirit and in Truth, Jn.4:23-24! See Col.3:17.

The Holy Spirit baptism is for us today, we are still in the same of age of grace as the Apostles were when the Holy Spirit had been poured out upon all flesh (We are in the Last Days, Joel 2:28), for all who will ask to receive it in faith believing it is for them, 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 not we will end up as one of these who have not the Spirit of God in them seen in Is.28:13But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken. All because they have not the one that had the Holy Bible written in the first place in them, to do the interpreting for them as they read they read the scriptures and to lead them into all truths in the correct order of presentation; for the mysteries to be revealed to them by the Holy Spirit. They will read it and keep reading it and it will just continue to confuse them until they get tired of it and bored with trying to understand it; then they will just put it down and go to some church that will preach to them, the way they like it and it makes them feel good, all the while they are headed for Hell worshipping a god of their own choosing, a god of their own vain imaginations they have conjured up or let someone else conjure up their idea of what god is to them, Mt.7:15-29! 2 Cor.11:13For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 14And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

This is where we are at today as well with this New Age Emerging Puke they call a church. Satan hides his angels as ministers of light and they are all around us leading us into temptation for freedom labeled and sold as free grace (2 Pt.2:1-22). As long as you just believe you will be saved… the Apostle James, Jesus’ own brother knew different. Jms.2:19Thou believest that there is one God, thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. The demons know there is only one God so why don’t we? Just believing in One God is not going to save you either unless you know Him personally and have a relationship with Him alone; and do His will and follow 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! Jn.14:7-9; Jn.10:30; and Jn.12:45!

It takes all scripture living in us as shown before in Jn.15:3, unless His words live in us we are not His Holy Temple and He is not dwelling in us unless His Words are alive in us in our lives, 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 Amos 3:3; Mal.3:6 and verses 16-18!

We cannot get this done on our own; we need the supernatural help of His Holy Spirit in us to get this job done or we can never fulfill all scripture in our lives, such as this one: 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 (2 Cor.4:6). How can we do this unless we have Jesus come to live in us as seen in Jn.14:18 and was well discussed by Jesus in Jn.17:1-ffs so we can be one with Him with the Father in Him and He in us! This is the secret mystery the Apostle Paul was talking about in Col.2:1-ffs; you notice there Paul talked about God and the Father and of the Christ Jesus, no mention here while discussing the God-head of the Holy Spirit, why? The Holy Spirit is part of the trinity’s godhead isn’t it? Sure it is, but Paul knew who the Holy Spirit was and that God is that God that is a Spirit (Jn.4:24, that is a Holy Spirit, seen in 1 Pt.1:14-ffs!) from which all spirits come from and will return to, Ecc.12:7 from the Father of all spirits seen in Heb.12:9. This was who was manifested in the flesh of the seed of King David, which was adopted of God clear back in 2 Sam.7:1-16, which is the sure mercies (The Promise) of God given to Him because of the promise given to Abraham, that through his seed all nations should or could be blessed as seen in Gen.12:3And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. The only ones out of all those nations who will be blessed is the ones who know who Jesus is and few there will be that find that one straight gate on that one narrow path, Mt.7:13Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in there at: 14Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it! See also Mt.20:16So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen. As Well as, Mt.22:14For many are called, but few are chosen. All because they or mankind could not come to terms with who Jesus is as well as those who live by His every word, but do not have a pure heart (1 Cor.13:1-3); Our God made it impossible for anyone to come dwell in His Kingdom without having a personal relationship with Him, by having a life spent in truth of His word living in us not so we could get a blessing from Him but that our hearts will be found as a child’s innocent heart is found, 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.

You see sin of ignorance is forgivable but sin of presumptuousness is unforgivable unless repented of and only they who know Jesus and what it is that He is looking for in us can be found in His will. That is why we can pray and get what it is we are looking for from Him because we know His will for us and the world. We serve Him and Him alone do we serve and we serve His Kingdom as it was told for us to do that with all our hearts, mind, strength, soul, body and with all our Love, for God is LOVE and those who are His love the whole world and we are not a respecter of persons, we love all the same! Sinner and Saint alike! This is why so many will be called but only a few will end up being chosen because of 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. See Gal.5:14-18!

The Apostle Paul told us to seek after the best gifts of the Spirit and to covet them, 1 Cor.12:31But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way. What could possibly be a more excellent way? It was shown to us in the 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. We can have the best works in the world and it will do us no heavenly good or get us any eternal Favour. Only loving Jesus and our fellow mankind, all of them, can we get to have His favor found applied to our lives but the sad part of this is; we cannot have it unless we have been regenerated in our heart with His mind, His feelings, His love, the supernatural love that is impossible to have unless we have been Born again of His supernatural soul, which is His Holy Spirit in us. That’s why many are called actually the whole world is called to come know Jesus, for He would that none be lost, 2 Pt.3:9The 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.

You see the gift of salvation is anything but free; it cannot come until we do one thing and do it right! That is repent, turn from our wicked ways, for the whole world lies in wickedness, 1 Jn.5:19, the Bible tells us so; we need to make up our minds to live for Jesus only and ask him to forgive our sins! Then we are to go and sin no more! We must make up our minds to seek after Jesus and Him only will we devote our lives to Ro.12:1-2o for example. We must do this as a willing vessel, as a freewill offering, to give to Him and ask for nothing in return only His love and forgiveness Lk.17:7-10. Not for any self-seeking motives just to keep our sorry buts out of Hell, that is the wrong reason and attitude; it will get you nowhere ever! He sees to our hearts there is no fooling Him, He sees to our very soul! Only when we seek Him as a pure helpless child and know without a doubt we have sinned and against Him only have we sinned! Then and only then can we come to Him on fresh innocent ground that has been purified by His love for us. When we receive His love we have all power we will ever need to go and live this life of ours in a victorious sinless manor, as seen in 1 Jn.5:17All 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. If we know it to be a sin, then it is a sin to us because it goes against His will, which is His words to us. Mt.12:30He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.

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 (By which all scripture is inspired by, 2 Pt.1:19-21; 2 Tm.3:16-17; Mt.4:4; see also Jn.6:63!), it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, and neither in the world to come. For the word of God is by which his government is set in place according to His Holy Words to us, by His living words, which will never die, Mt.24:35!

If we are not gathering souls for Him in this our last days, we are not dying daily for Him and we will be found not worthy of Him, won’t we? Mt.16:24Then said Jesus unto his disciples: If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. 25For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. 26For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? 27For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works! Right out of Jesus’ own mouth and if anyone thinks the Apostle Paul was teaching anything other than this they are those who Peter was talking about in 2 Pt.3:10But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. 11Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy (The same word used for holy is the same word used in the Greek for Saint of God! Hagiois Strong’s number 40) conversation (Which is not just speaking here intended but the doing of one’s life!) 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 (Which is right thinking and just judgment, that is obedience to all scripture (2 Tm.3:16-17) which cleanses us, Jn.15:3!).

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 (So much for once saved always saved! We are to keep growing in Christ Jesus!). 18But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever. Amen.

Seeing then that with all our getting of this word of God to us, we are to get many blessing from God along the way, we need not keep asking for blessings from Him He knows exactly what we are in need of before we ask; but it is important to know what it is He is looking for in us. As we grow closer to Him and learn more and more about Him through reading His word, He will keep fulfilling His promises to us and reveal more and more of Himself to us through His words to us. It is written draw closer to Him and He will draw closer to us Jms.4:6But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. 7Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. 9Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. 10Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up. God cannot lie, His words are the only words in the whole world that are truth and never can be anything else but truth. (2 Tm.3:16-17) It takes all scripture living and working in our lives to be found righteous and separation from the world of wickedness to be found Holy, a vessel chosen by our lord God to be used for His services, that means sanctified, and consecrated to God only will we serve!

It is only when we start to live in those truths can we be found as righteousness of God in Jesus, 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 (Repentance has taken place!); behold, all things are become new (we have gone in a new direction away from sin and the world of wickedness!). 18And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; 19To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. 20Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God (because Jesus is God in the flesh, 1 Tm.3:16 our Immanuel, Mt.1:23, who is God with us!). 21For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him (Jesus our righteousness of God in God! Son of God according to the flesh used for incarnation, the begotten God in Jn.1:18 in many Greek manuscripts!).

Never take the words of men in this world, only rely on the plan of salvation that is found in the living words of Jesus Christ and His anointed and ordained apostles, for God changes not, Mal.3:6 and God is looking for these kinds of people, 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. As well as these; Ecc.12:10The preacher sought to find out acceptable words: and that which was written was upright, even words of truth. 11The words of the wise are as goads, and as nails fastened by the masters of assemblies, which are given from one shepherd! 12And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh. 13Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man! 14For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil. This is found in the New Testament as well, Heb.13:8Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.

We are all called to be found in Holiness and Righteousness which is only found in the truth of the Lord’s words living in us! On our own we can do nothing as called out in Jn.15:1I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. 2Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. 3Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. 4Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. 5I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. 6If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. 7If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. 8Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples. 9As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. 10If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love. 11These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. 12This is my commandment: That ye love one another, as I have loved you.

13Greater love hath no man than this; that a man lay down his life for his friends. (Not speaking of war here either! We are to love all and give our lives winning the lost with love, as seen in Ro.12:1I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 2And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Doing no evil: 14Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not. 15Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep. 16Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits. 17Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. 18If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. 19Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. 20Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. 21Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good!)

We must be servants before we can graduate to be His friends (Apostles)! This can only be done when we learn to love as He loved the world and died for it, so must we too, to ourselves, we must die daily and pick up our crosses as we follow after Jesus in like manor, Jn.14:6! Then we come to this verse: 14Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. 15Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father (The “HOLY SPIRIT” in Jesus, for He doeth the works, the power of the Highest, Lk.1:35 by which Jesus was conceived, the FATHER, because God is a SPIRIT, Jn.4:24!) I have made known unto you. 16Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you (so why would we not ask for forgiveness of our sins in the only name by which all salvation comes, Ac.4:12? In the only name by which Salvation and forgiveness of sins is available to us in Jesus’ Holy name only! The Holy Spirit is sent to us in Jesus’ name, Jn.14:26 and Jesus comes in His Father’s name, Jn.5:43 and we will not come to Him so we can have salvation by His name, Jn.5:39; that has all power attached to Jesus’ name, Mt.24:18 and Jn.14:14!). 17These things I command you, that ye love one another. Here is where mankind fails most miserably and is therefore not worthy of Jesus and His Kingdom. Jesus is the Kingdom of God seen in Mt.12:28 and seen again in Lk.11:20; which started clear back in Mt.4:17, as well as, 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! We are the Temple of the Living God not some building or organization or denomination! We the individual is the Temple of the One True God, Jesus Christ’s Holy Spirit in us, Jn.14:18! Why does man make everything so difficult, so they can get your tithing that is intended for the true needy, the true poor and helpless, the orphaned, the widows who can’t get out and work anymore, the old and aged who can’t get out and mow their yards or takes care of getting the groceries or cleaning their houses, we should be taking care of our elders not shipping them off to a nursing home, Jms.1:25But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed. 26If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain. 27Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this: To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

Who will hear our words?

Then the world will hate us too, for the world cannot bear our words and will not accept them either for they of the world hear us not, 1 Jn.4:5They 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. As St. John relayed to us from which he heard straight from Jesus in Jn.8:47He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God. As Jesus spoke to the priests of the Temple of the One True living God. Jesus told us who he was when He said one greater than the Temple is here, when He was speaking to the members of the Sanhedrin. Mt.12:6But I say unto you: That in this place is one greater than the temple. He (Jesus) was speaking of Himself for which the Temple was built for Him! It is a holy temple because it was consecrated for His use, this is how we become holy too and we must become His property and be sanctified unto Him for His use only, in order for us to be a worthy child of God!

All this is just the scratching of the surface as they (Aquila and Pricilla, in Ac.18:24-26)  who took Apollos off to the side to show him a more perfect understanding as seen in Ac.18:25This man was instructed in the way of the Lord; and being fervent in the spirit, he spake and taught diligently the things of the Lord, knowing only the baptism of John. 26And he began to speak boldly in the synagogue: whom when Aquila and Priscilla had heard, they took him unto them, and expounded unto him the way of God more perfectly! Just as Apostle Paul did to the disciples of John the Baptist in Ephesus in Ac.19:1And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples, 2He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him: We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost. 3And he said unto them: Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, Unto John’s baptism. 4Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people; that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus. 5When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus! 6And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied! 7And all the men were about twelve.

This and so much more I have to teach you but I too must wait until you have received the baptism of the Holy Spirit with speaking in a heavenly language as all them who were in the upper room in Jerusalem as seen in Ac.2:1And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. 3And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them! 4And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance! And then Jesus’ Spirit will lead you into all truths (Jn.1:17), for no one can go up to heaven unless they have come down from heaven first, Jn.3:13And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven. When he comes upon you, you will then understand this verse in its entirety, for He will reveal it to you! 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. Jn.3:3Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. 4Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? 5Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 6That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. 8The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit. How else can we fulfill the last verse here unless we are truly born again of a Supernatural Holy Spirit, with His giftings present in us for our confirmation, as seen in 1 Cor.1:1Paul called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through (by) the will of God, and Sosthenes our brother, 2Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus (Ac.20:28, Mk.16:1-20), called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours: 3Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ (Jn.10:30 and 12:45!).

 4I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ; (Jn.1:17): 5That in everything ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge; 6Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you (Rev.19:10): 7So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ: 8Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.

This as well as my book I have published will get you very far along the way to true Oneness of God seen in Isaiah chapter 44 and 45 for examples, as well as in Ex.3:14, to know the One True God who is the “I AM” as seen in Jn.8:58 and Jn.8:24, who Jesus has shown us to be, by revealing to us who He is in scripture, which is the truth of God’s words to us in the world that lies in error and a horror rapidly approaching!

We are all sojourners traveling and travailing through a valley of the shadow of death, Ps.23:1The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. 3He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. 4Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. 5Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. 6Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

This is a Psalm for the living and is most heard at a funeral, so the living can come to the realms of understanding that as long as we put our faith in the given words of God to us that cannot lie, we shall always find comfort and guidance in the times of our trials, because if we live for Jesus, truly live for Him as is called out in scripture, we will always have persecution even from those who claim they are one of Jesus’ children, who are still of the world, living in their own hypocrisy, using only the scriptures that will justify their life styles the way they want to live in this short time we have here called out times of temptation and trials, Jn.16:33, just as Jesus went through in Matthew chapter 4. Only when we keep God’s word available in our minds and always on our lips, will the devil flee from you at the mere mention of Jesus’ all powerful name! They (The demons) can’t help themselves, they know Jesus is God in the flesh, that was foretold by the prophets, as “The CHRIST” (See Ac.2:36 and Ac.10:36), as they, who were being carried along in His Spirit while being instructed what to write to us; as I have been doing all the way through this too, I will teach nothing but Jesus, and Him alone will I serve as the One True God, 1 Jn.5:20, seen in 1 Tm.3:16 and Is.9:6 as well as Is.40:3 and Jn.5:39, that all scripture is written about, for our Salvation! So we can know the one true God, Jesus our LORD of ALL!

Lord’s Way Ministries

Rev. G. L. Boyett

Written in the Last Days, 5/28/2014

Rev.2:4Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. 5Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.

A healing from infection from open heart surgery!

This is presented [sic] or word for word.

Heb.13:8

Dear prayer partner in the Lord,

I am happy to confirm with you that our Lord Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. It means He can do everything he has done yesterday even today and forever.  The word of God says, taste and see how great the God is. Amen!   Hereby I would like to share with you a testimony of Mrs. Amminni .

Amminni is from a Roman Catholic family but as her husband was a political leader, none of their family believed in God nor has ever gone to Church. One day, she felt an unusual pain in her heart and her children took her to a nearby hospital, where doctors said that she is in very critical condition and need to take to a good hospital where she can get a good treatment.

When her family took her to the Medical College Hospital (one of the famous hospitals), doctors said that she need to go through the open heart surgery or she will not leave more than one week. This made the entire family very sad, but they got read for the surgery as they had not other option. The operation was successfully done, but after few days doctors said the there is puss in the wound and it is spreading.

We came to know this news and we visited her and prayed for her in the hospital. We asked them to believe in the Lord and they believed and prayed with us for Amminni’s healing. The result of our prayer was amazing. The next day doctors checked her again and found a major change in the wounds and there is no puss. God is so good.  God has healed her completely.  In the picture, she is giving her testimony of God’s great healing and giving her a new life in Christ and I am translating it into the local language.  Now her entire family has committed their life for Christ.

I believe that you are blessed with this testimony.

God bless you,

Your brother Santhosh

Anabaptist Communities combining with Oneness In Fellowship and In Jesus Christ’s Name!

Anabaptist Communities combining with Oneness In Fellowship and In Jesus Christ’s Name!

(Jn.8:24 and verse 58; Lk.18:7-8)

 The Lord Jesus Christ was no dim theological figure, no “marginal character,” to the Anabaptists. He was their friend, their brother, the hero and the focus of their highest admiration. An unnamed Anabaptist wrote in the early 1500s:

Look at Christ the friendly knight! Look at the captain! The battle, when you come to this place, is fierce. The enemies — the world, the flesh, sin, the devil, and death — close in around you. But leap to your captain’s side! He will kill the enemies! He will help you out of all distress.

Stay with your flag! Do not let them drive you back from your captain, Jesus Christ! If you want the crown and the glory, and if you want to triumph with him, you must suffer and die with him too. They caught Christ our captain and beat him. In like manner they mistreat us, his followers. The hour of distress has come upon all the earth. They hunt us out. In almost every country they try to catch us because we stand for Christ. They try to keep Christ from coming to help us, barricading all the roads until they have us. Then the strangling and the stabbing, the gruesome violence begins. But wait, our captain, he will avenge it! He will break the power of the enemy, and he will stand with his little flock!
All you beloved knights of God, be strong! Be manly in the fight! This dreadful storm will not be long. Stand fast! Stand true to death! Do not allow them to drive you back. Men and women, trust in God!

Secret of the Strength, Chapter 6

I wonder how many in our congregation would stand up in this fight to the end, without fighting back, just for the sheer Word of Christ, would you? To the Anabaptists, community with Christ was worth having at the expense of husband, wife, children, or parents. It was worth the terror of flight and torture. The glory of community with Christ, the “Gemeinschaft of sharing in his sufferings” lit up the deepest dungeon. It shone with an other-worldly radiance above the flames of the Scheiterhaufen (the woodpile where the condemned were burned at the stake). It was the light they saw that opened the heavens and allowed them to see right there, almost within reach, the unspeakable joy of eternal community in new heavens and a new earth where righteousness dwells. Community with Christ, for the Anabaptists, was the promise of the Kingdom of Heaven. A south German Anabaptist wrote in the mid-1500s:

Oh God Father, on heaven’s throne, you have prepared for us a crown if we stay in your Son, if we suffer with him the cross and the pain, if we surrender ourselves to him in this life and if we struggle continually to enter into his community. You tell us what we need to know, through your Son, if we have community with him. . . .You gave your beloved Son to us to be our head. He has marked out for us the road we should take, so that we would not lose our way and find ourselves outside of his community . . . Therefore, Christians, oh little flock, let us all look together at how he walked before us here on the earth. Let us become like him in love and in suffering. Let us keep our covenant with him and not stay away from eating his flesh and his blood. His flesh and his blood, the food he gave us, must be understood like this: In eating his flesh and blood, the Spirit brings us into community with him. . . . God redeems us together with Christ. He serves us through his Son. His Son is the rock and the cornerstone of the house of his commune — his wife, his companion and his love, through whom he works on the earth. . . .Therefore come! Come all you newborn Christians! Come in sincerity to Christ the Passover lamb, whose kingdom and community shall never end!

I’m not entirely sure they understood the oneness of God in Jesus but they definitely had the compassion, faith and were doers of the Word not just hears, they had what it takes to go all the way, faith without compromising their principles, integrity, faith and discipline, of keeping Jesus’ Commandments unto death they stood, without fighting back physically, just as Jesus Commanded. Ro.12:21; Mt.5:38Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: 39But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. 40And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also. 41And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain. 42Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away. 43Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. 44But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; 45That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. 46For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? 47And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? 48Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

Jesus gave all these for examples of how we are to have fellowship with Him who died for us, are we not to die daily for Him in return? Mt.10:28-42; 2Tm.3:16-17 Do it or Perish! The entire Bible is His Holy Word that He Wrote with His apostles, prophets, disciples, by His Holy Spirit; we need to read and do every verse in it to make it to Him who is above all and Lord of all, Acts2:36; 10:36!

Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever, He changes not so how can we claim to know Him when we keep not His sayings, we cannot be His disciple! Lk.14:23And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled. 24For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden shall taste of my supper. 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. (Those who have run their race in vain on today’s vain theology!) 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 has 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.

Those who are overcomers are those who have given up on this foolishness called today’s modern philosophy, of materialism, realism, carnality, over true Holy Ghost spirituality (Called being Born Again)! For the flesh profiteth nothing, for those who live in the flesh will die in the flesh, and those who sincerely seek Jesus as the first commandment taught will live to be with Him in Spirit and in truth. This world and everything in it are going to pass away with all sinners for this world will be their just rewards; I myself will continue to look for the new heavens and New Jerusalem! Lk.6:46And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say? 47Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like: 48He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock. 49But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.

When we read Revelation’s we find we will be judged by His every word and how we interpret His Word and most importantly is how we implement the Word in our daily lives, and this goes along with the Apostles for they wrote what He told them to write by His Spirit in them, they wrote the red typed words as well as those black letters! Mt.5:17Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. 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.

1Jn.2:15Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 17And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever. Jesus said in Matthew24:34Verily I say unto you, This generation (Age) shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. 35Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

1John2 speaks of keeping Jesus’ Word or perishing with this world in the end: 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.

 Today’s church prophesied

Rev.2:14And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; 15I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 16So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. 17Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: 18I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eye salve, that thou mayest see. 19As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten (Those who suffer in this world in the fire of affliction are being tested and refined as God’s Golden Vessels!): be zealous therefore, and repent (Mt.3:11 He shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:). 20Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hears my voice, and opens the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. 21To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne (Kingdom), even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne (Kingdom). 22He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. But those who keep His words and do them are His overcomers; Rev.2: 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. But how can this age have an understanding and a interpretation of scripture without the Holy Spirit leading them in all righteousness and holiness; by His word He reveals Himself to us by His indwelling Spirit in us. Jn3:3-7 was put in the word of God because it is important and hast to be required with diligent searching in all righteousness and then all things will be added unto you! Mt.6:33

If we have none of His Spirit in us we are none of His, Ro.8:9: How can we be the Temple of the living God when we have not His spirit in us and if we claim we do then why is it we cannot lead an overcoming life? Most generally it is because we did not repent before we tried to get baptized, and the Lord looked at your heart and saw your intensions where self preservationally motivated instead of knowing the true cost of discipleship! Jm.1: 19Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: 20For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. 21Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls. 22But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. 23For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: 24For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. 25But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed. 26If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain. 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 (perfect, without blame, Mt.5:48; from Gen.17:1; the same today tomorrow and forever the Lord changes not, form old testament to the New Jesus is forever!) from the world. Just a helpful note whenever you see a word with eth at the end of it; it means to keep doing whatever that word means continually!

Backsliding a slippery slope to Hell

Once saved always saved is going to lead a lot of people straight to Hell: As well as I’m saved by Grace! NO one is above the commandments and that is why Jesus poured out His Spirit in the last days as spoken of by Joel which was preached upon by Peter, (Acts2), because the Holy Spirit with speaking in tongues was given just for that reason so we would know without a doubt when we receive Him in our lives, with power (Grace) to become overcomers and live a righteous Holy Godly lifestyle, the Lord said come out from amount them (The World) and I will make you a priestly nation, (Ex.19:3-6) and in the New Testament 2Cor.6:17Wherefore 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. Anything less than this is total deviance and a sin; 1Jn.3:   

1 John 3

1Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. 2Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. 3And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure. 4Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. 5And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin. 6Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not (Jn.5:14; Jn.8:11): whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him. 7Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. 8He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. 9Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. 10In this the children of God are manifest (made known), and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother. 11For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another. 12Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous. 13Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you.

You see I don’t set Doctrine the Bible does, it is up to us to live it or perish in eternal Hell in the Lake of eternal Fire that has no bottom, where the worm dieth not and is forever hungry for sinners, that are the fuel for the fire that is never quenched! A real place for the adversary and His disciples those who cannot humble themselves to our Lord’s Doctrines and most preachers are clueless of, and the people never study the word to show their self approved of, 2Tm.2:15Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. I have a scripture for you: Heb.12:28Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: 29For our God is a consuming fire. You see hear is the fundamental truth that we are to serve Him and in return He pours out His Grace on those who keep His truths, because grace and truth came by Jesus, Jn.1:17, so you see grace is a holy thing and is not for a sinner, and never was established for that purpose, the blood of remission of sin covers us from all sin, which is administered at Baptism in the only name by which it comes, read Ac.4:12; 2:38-40 that is the baptism talked about in Eph.4:4-7!

Where is today’s fear of God?

If there was any (fear of God) we would see a totally different world today; Pr.14:26In the fear of the LORD is strong confidence: and his children shall have a place of refuge. 27The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death. Chapter 2:

Proverbs 2

1My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee; 2So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding (The doing of what you learned that is according to scripture!); 3Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; 4If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures (Mt.4:4; Lk4:4); 5Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God (Ecc.12:13-14). 6For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding. 7He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly (Grace. Mt.6:33 and 7:7-78). 8He keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of his saints (Jn.1:17). 9Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and judgment (1 Cor.2:1-16), and equity; yea, every good path (Mt.7:13-14). 10When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul (You shall live forever with our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ); 11Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee: 12To deliver thee from the way of the evil man (Satan and this world that is going to pass away), from the man that speaketh froward things (Jm.1:26; and Chapter 3 of James, see also Jms.4:1-4!) ; 13Who leave the paths of uprightness, to walk in the ways of darkness, (Gen.1:3; Jn.8:12); 14Who rejoice to do evil, and delight in the frowardness of the wicked; 15Whose ways are crooked, and they froward in their paths (Deu.4; and if our faith does not have works we are not His to begin with, Jms. Chapter 2!): 16To deliver thee from the strange woman (Not literal women it is false doctrines, of the Church of the World with Satan as their Pastor with man’s vain theological worldly principles rather than scriptural walks and evidences of Holy Spirit filled worship of fire and of truth, that man adheres to, this is when he commits adultery to God when He steps in His own directions and gets out of God’s path, (Deu.5:32-33; Mt.7:13-14), this is also the mark of the beast in Revelations which is the false Doctrines in this world, trying to white wash man’s inability to follow His our God’s Commandments! A Church that looks like a Church but lacks the power thereof (verse 13 of Isa 28), for Keeping His Words, Isa.28:7-20.), even from the stranger which flattereth with her words (2Tm.4:1-4); 17Which forsaketh the guide of her youth, and forgetteth the covenant of her God (Rev.2:4-5). 18For her house inclineth unto death and her paths unto the dead (You and I, if we dare not to humble ourselves and follow our Apostles advice and walk according to their teachings, 1Cor.4:16Wherefore I beseech you, be ye followers of me. Also this verse 1Cor.11:1Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ. 2Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you. 3But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ ;). 19None that go unto her return again, neither take they hold of the paths of life (Mt.12:30-37; Gal.5:7). 20That thou mayest walk in the way of good men, and keep the paths of the righteous (2Tm.3:16-17). 21For the upright shall dwell in the land, and the perfect shall remain in it (Mal.3:16-18). 22But the wicked shall be cut off from the earth and the transgressors shall be rooted out of it. So we see that Grace (Favour Ac.20:24 and 32) is for keeping His will and His Commandments! Mt.12:43When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. 44Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. 45Then goeth he and taketh with himself 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. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation (Age of  False Grace Doctrines). 46While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him. 47Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee. 48But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren? 49And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! 50For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.

If we say we have no sin we lie:

This is why we need to repent of sin because the more we are enlightened by the Holy Ghost in His scriptures the more we are held accountable to His righteousness, and we need to pray for forgiveness of our unknown sins as well as for our new found out sins, and for any unrighteousness and the sinful flesh nature, 1Jn.1:8If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.   Lk.12:47And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. 48But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more. And for those who think once saved always saved read this and weep or change your church where you can get feed the truth; Lk.12:46The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers. The Lord will come soon to justify those who have endeavored to sustain themselves on His words by keeping their bodies in check, and their emotions, their attitudes, and their sinful nature submitted to our Lord’s ways, without blemish, this is putting your money where your mouth is or in more polite friendly words we keep His commandments by putting our beliefs into practical use which constitutes faith, by walking in His will and in His Spirit we find contentment and self satisfaction knowing we have done all we can to follow Him in His ways and not ours! Just as Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, David and our own Christ Jesus, all gave their lives to God and let Him have His way with them, all but one stumbled; but only one did what was required of Him perfectly, but the point is that they may have stumbled but they fell on their faces before their God and asked for forgiveness when they fell out of His ways, and by their faith in doing and seeking God’s will and not their own they were accounted as faithful servants of our Lord and have found a place with the lord by their works they were accounted  with righteousness and were blessed according to their actions, Lk.18:8I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? This is putting Jesus’ teaching to practice daily, and how can we when we don’t even study His word daily? This is not what is meant by denying yourself daily and picking up our crosses! Mt.16:24-26 What if we gain the whole world will it not end up melting into a fiery furnace as the Lord has predestined?

When the church is being persecuted it becomes heightened to new heights of compassion for our beliefs this leads to faith being restored and ignited just as some of the puritans as they stood in the fire praising the Lord as they were burned at the stake, by no less that the Roman Catholics who gave us the Trinity Doctrines of Hell and even the Protestants and the Lutherans got into the action of killing those against Bible teachings of Jesus’ sayings, overcome evil with kindness so that God can dump the Hot coals on their enemies heads, for vengeance will be mine thus sayeth the Lord of the Host! Could our Pentecostal ranks hold up to this scrutiny? I think not, for we honor our military every chance we get to glorify ourselves instead of God and in keeping His truths alive in our congregations, are we not the body of Christ, and I read nowhere in the bible that the Lord ever struck anyone not even Judas who would have been thrashed by us, but Jesus practiced treat not evil with evil but overcome it with kindness and Godliness, even loving kindness, Ro.2:4Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance? We are not to be yoked to anyone who commits killing or any other violent acts, so how can our denomination condone the practice of supporting our military while it kills its enemies! We are to be about our Lord’s business and trust in Him in faith believing and He will contain our enemies, how could we have any enemies anyway if all we did was treat every nation with compassion, and feed the hungry, and cloth the naked, and build homes for the homeless, and visit the widows and the fatherless, how could anyone fight with or against Love, you can’t win a battle against Love!

This is how our Anabaptist friends won their new converts over with faith and with Godly, Brotherly Love, believing just what scripture tells us to do; we should do it realistically verse by verse and then watch out for what happens next, we would be labeled, supporters of terrorist, subversive cultist, because Jesus said if we follow Him we would be persecuted; where is our persecution today, it is because we are to much like the world to be a threat to them or Satan, so they in turn even come to our churches with hair cut on women, men with long hair, women wearing pants, man and women both with make-up on, earrings, jewelry, and the rest of the worldly fashions with ladies wearing nylons with fancy designs, that draw attention to their legs as well as long dresses so tight it leaves nothing to speculate upon (1Jn.2:15-17)! This would not be so bad if it were only in the ranks of the newcomers only but this is going on with our more supposively mature adult saints who are well off baby food diets of scripture and are teaching, and working instructing our children all the while training them to live in this world just as close as you can without being part of it and it is not working because they lack true Biblical understanding, the putting scripture to practice kind of understanding! I will tell you why these kind of people are still in our churches, it is because our pastors want numbers, not true converts, or it would hurt the bottom line of the financial future of His back pocket, because we are to rebuke those who are defiant and cause strife with a congregation (Tit.3:1-11) who is holding the mark of excellence according to the Lord’s Spirit, after the second or third admonition they are to be shunned; Titus3:10A man that is an heretic after the first and second admonition reject; 11Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.14And let our’s also learn to maintain good works for necessary uses, that they be not unfruitful. Mt.18:15Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother. 16But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established. 17And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglects to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican. Even if that man is the head pastor!

If we do not enforce this then we can expect a large turnover of our congregations, because those who are trying to live with the Lord will come out from among the worldliness of their own congregations and seek a more righteous walk with our Lord and Saviour, with a truer purer people who walk according to God’s ways and not the modern pro quo of watered down sermons, that won’t convict the obesity of not denying the flesh, the drinking, the smoking and most importantly the failure to walk according to His Commandments! I’m tired of us teaching our children to seek after trophies and pendants, in Bible quizzing, and the church having hobby Sunday showing everyone how vain we are gathering things that just gather dust, without any benefit to mankind in the sake of a wasted time of collecting yet again material gains (materialism is still materialism is it not?) and then the next week have a car show more materialism and coveting our neighbors accomplishments, oh look what I brought how pretty mentality!

We have sacraments and foot washing and then turn around the next day and have an Easter-day egg hunts for the children, of a pagan religious tradition! We are teaching our children the wrong ideas of a Godly life style trying to blend into a world we were told to come out of, to be part of it but not to be of it we are to be a peculiar people! If we are in the world we had better be evangelizing, not on another trip to go snow skiing, water skiing, or seeing shows in Branson under the disguise of fellowship and on vacation in the naked Caribbean Carnival Cruise circuit or anywhere else unless it is a special religious cruise for all evangelicals going to Israel or somewhere else to evangelize a country (1Thes.5:22)! Jesus at 12 told it all, out of the mouths of babes; Lk.2:49And he said unto them: How is it that ye sought me? Wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s business? At all times why aren’t we, Col.3:17 it is required of us?

If we do not understand scripture well enough to know that we are to walk therein and in God’s Love then we are Lost still; because if we have not this kind of Love we are none of His. 1Jn.4:6We 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 (Mt.11:25-30). 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!

If we cannot even love those inside our own ranks with a pure heart how can we say we have a love for Jesus Christ and not keep His teachings along with His Holy Apostles who gave themselves for our behalf (Jn.15:20), they lost their own lives for Jesus Christ and the church body, are we not to follow suit? Our Anabaptist brothers did… From The Secret of the Strength

What would the Anabaptists tell this generation?

By Peter Hoover

Chapter 6: On to Christ

True Surrender

Following Christ, the Anabaptists, especially those of south central Europe, spoke of Gelassenheit (a “letting loose” of everything) for Christ. Hans Haffner from a community of believers in Moravia wrote a tract while in the dungeon of the castle in Passau, Bavaria, in the 1530s, entitled “About the True Soldier of Jesus Christ.” In it he spoke of surrender:

Now let us hear what true surrender is: It is to let go of all things for God’s sake . . . and to turn to God so that he may lead us. Jesus Christ called it hatred: “He who does not hate his father and mother and renounce everything he has is not worthy of me.” True surrender is to put to death the flesh and to be born another time. The whole world wants to have Christ, but they pass him by. They do not find him because they want to have him only as a gift, only as a giver of grace and a mediator which he certainly is, but they do not want to have him in a suffering way.

The same Christ who says, “All who are heavy laden, come to me and I will refresh you,” also says, “Whosoever will not forsake father and mother cannot be my disciple.” (Lk.14:26 and ffs for we must know the cost of discipleship!) Whoever loves truth must accept the one as well as the other. Whoever wants to have Christ must have him also in the way of suffering. It is foolish to say: “We believe that Christ has redeemed us, but we do not want to live like he lived.”
True surrender involves two things: enduring persecution and overcoming ourselves. When they hit us on one cheek we are to turn to them the other. . . . In the second place we must be weaned from the ways of our human nature as a child must be weaned from his mother’s breast. We must be willing to forsake wife and children, father and mother, lands and property, our lives and even what God has given to us. . . for Christ.

Today’s Churches Following another Teacher and another Gospel of Jesus Christ

1Jn.2:15Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man loves 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.

So we see the biggest fight we have in our modern day churches is still what Jesus was fighting with the Sadducees, Pharisees and scribes is still the same old thing hypocrisy we have not learned one thing from Matthew 23. If we are not about His business everyday and every minute about that day we miss lead ourselves into a complacency of a false doctrine that is relying on grace alone and that is not what grace is for! Grace is for the service, to uphold Jesus’ teaching and to administer the power thereof for that service by His grace! (Heb12:28-29) Heb.13:15By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name. 16But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.

Madmen or Fools?

Four centuries after Hans Haffner wrote this tract, I spoke about Christian economics in a Mennonite church. I read what Jesus said on the subject and implied that we should obey him. No sooner did the service end than the minister of the congregation came to me and wondered what I meant. I said I didn’t mean anything but what Jesus said. He replied: “Well, I haven’t studied into it much, but I am sure there must be other Scriptures that would give this more of a balance.”
Balancing out Christ — what a difficult assignment! Especially for a minister who hasn’t “studied into it much”!
Leonhard Schiemer, Wolfgang Brandhuber, or Hans Schlaffer — it would never have occurred to them that Christ needed “balancing out.” The Anabaptists did not ask what Christ meant. They simply followed him, and people called them fanatics.
The young Anabaptist messenger, Claus Felbinger, wrote in chains from the castle dungeon at Landshut in Bavaria shortly before they beheaded him on July 19, 1560:

The world has become a wilderness, sunken in sin, and knows little or nothing of God. And now the very teaching of the Gospel has become a new and heretical teaching, a deception in the eyes of the world. As soon as God raises up a messenger of salvation . . . one who proclaims to them the true Word of God and shows them the right way to go, they refuse to believe him and think he is a madman or a fool. Anyone filled with the Spirit is considered stupid or insane. (Sound familiar?)

It was the Protestants, not the Anabaptists, who studied the New Testament in the sixteenth century to find out “what Jesus meant.” It was the Protestants, not the Anabaptists, who arrived at a “place of rest” and at “balanced” and “reasonable” positions on scriptural issues. It was the Protestants, not the Anabaptists, who knew their theology, their soteriology, and their ecclesiology. And certainly, the Protestants had inspired and capable leaders too.

A Monk in Armour

As a sixteen-year-old boy wrestling with a colt to get it untangled from its tie strap, I broke my foot. For several weeks I was laid up and an elderly “Conference” Mennonite neighbor brought me books to read from his church library. One of them was a book about Martin Luther called A Monk in Armour.
The story of Martin Luther’s conversion struck me to the heart. His conviction and his zeal for the truth inspired me, as few things have, in my Christian life. This is part of the story in his own words:

No matter how irreproachably I lived as a monk, I felt myself to be a sinner in the presence of God. My conscience bothered me very much. I could not believe that I pleased God with the things I was doing to gain his favor. I did not love God and his justice. In fact, I hated him — if not in open blasphemy, at least with huge murmurings in my heart. I was indignant with him, thinking that on top of condemning us miserable sinners to eternal destruction through original sin and oppressing us with all kinds of calamities through the law and the ten commandments, he had added sorrow onto sorrow by giving us the gospel (impossible to obey) through which his wrath would finally fall on us.
In this way I struggled fiercely and desperately with my conscience, while I continued to knock away at the epistles of Paul, consumed with a burning desire to know what he meant. . . .
Then, at last, I began to understand the justice of God. I began to see that the just man lives by the gift of God, which is by faith. I began to understand that the justice of God revealed in the Gospels is to be taken in a passive way, and that God justifies men not by works but by faith, as it is written: “The just shall live by faith.” When I comprehended this, I felt myself to have been born again, and to have entered through open gates into paradise itself.

Martin Luther found rest for his conscience — not in Christ but in Paul, not in the Gospels but in “sound doctrine.” When I was ten years old his great hymn, Vom Himmel hoch da komm ich her, ich bring euch Heil und Gnadenlehr. Der guten Lehr bring ich so viel, davon ich singend sagen will . . . , (From Heaven Above to Earth I come, I bring you salvation and grace teaching. The good teachers I’ll take as much of it I want to say singing. According “Google Translating tool!”), made a deep impression (through a special occurrence) on me. Throughout my childhood it was my favorite hymn. But in the years following, little by little, I began to see where Martin Luther (a Trinitarian) and the Anabaptists parted ways.

Martin Luther found the Scriptures. The Anabaptists found Christ (The one true God in the flesh 1Tm.3:16). Their discoveries led them in totally different directions.

A Balanced Position

At the Diet of Augsburg on June 25, 1530, the rulers and church leaders of Protestant Germany met to draw up the Augsburg Confession of Faith (the “only authoritative and in every way the most significant” confession of the Lutheran church). Among its “balanced” and “reasonable” positions, based on the Scriptures, the confession states:

It is taught among us that all government in the world and all established rule and laws were instituted and ordained by God for the sake of good order, and that Christians may without sin occupy civil offices or serve as princes and judges, render decisions and pass sentence according to imperial and other existing laws, punish evildoers with the sword, engage in just wars, serve as soldiers, buy and sell, take required oaths, possess property, be married, etc.
Condemned here are the Anabaptists, who teach that none of the things indicated above is Christian. Also condemned are those who teach that Christian perfection requires the forsaking of house and home, wife and child, and the renunciation of such activities as are mentioned above. Actually, true perfection consists alone of proper fear of God and real faith in God, for the Gospel does not teach an outward and temporal but an inward and eternal mode of existence and righteousness of the heart.

After five other ringing condemnations of the “Anabaptists, Donatists and Novatians,” the Augsburg Confession (translated and adapted for use in the Anglican and Methodist churches of today) was signed by John, duke of Saxony; George, margrave of Brandenburg; Ernest, duke of Lüneburg; Philip, landgrave of Hesse; John Frederick, duke of Saxony; Francis, duke of Lüneburg; Wolfgang, prince of Anhalt; the mayor and council of Nuremberg and the mayor and council of Reutlingen.
But the Anabaptists paid no attention to it. They followed Christ.
Further south, in Protestant Switzerland, Huldrych Zwingli and John Calvin also wondered how to handle the “Anabaptist pestilence.” In a letter to Vadian (Conrad Grebel’s brother-in-law), Zwingli  (Still yet another Trinitarian) said: “My struggle with the old church (Catholicism) was child’s play compared to my struggle with the Anabaptists.” John Calvin (Another Trinitarian) in his Brief Instruction to Arm Those of Good Faith Against the Errors of the Anabaptists wrote:

These miserable fanatics have no other goal than to put everything into disorder. . . . They reveal themselves to be the enemies of God and of the human race. . . . If it is not right for a Christian man to go to law with anyone to settle quarrels regarding possessions, inheritance, and other matters, then I ask these good teachers what will become of the world! (What would happen with a Doctrine of Love of God and man with all your being…..Peace and love of life is exactly what would happen; no more conflict on earth and heaven would be still along with earth and Jesus would reign forever, Lk.11:2!)

The Anabaptists did not answer John Calvin in writing. They answered him with their lives.

“I am the way and the truth and the life.” Jn14:6

To the Protestants, the Bible was the manifesto, an end in itself. Once they reached an agreement on how to “properly” interpret it, they revered it and treated it with gallant devotion. They preached and persecuted and fought mighty wars in defense of the Bible and its doctrines.
To the Anabaptists, the Bible was simply the book that took them to Christ.
The Protestants found the “key” to Bible interpretation in the epistles of Paul. But the Anabaptists found it in Christ and his Sermon on the Mount.
The Protestants saw in Paul a great theologian, the expositor of the doctrines of faith and grace. The Anabaptists saw in Paul a man who forsook everything to become a “fool for Christ’s sake.” They found community with him in his martyr’s death.
The Protestants lived to obey their authorities. They spoke much about “God-ordained authority” and held their princes and church leaders in highest esteem.
The Anabaptists lived to obey Christ.

The Protestants worked en masse (One Catholic or Universal Church, mono-logy-theism) and waited until “everyone was ready” to make changes in religious practice.
The Anabaptists did, on first opportunity, what they thought Christ wanted them to do. If no one else joined them, they did it alone. The Protestants followed a logical course. Theologians, princes and educators planned what to do in a way that made sense.

The Anabaptists followed Christ without making plans. That did not make sense. But it was the secret of their great strength. And it led them . . . (Looks like this, Jn.3:8The 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.)

Jesus said it best unless we come to Him as a child we are going to be struggling all the way! If we just surrender to His teaching and do as He said follow Me; we would be all the better for it, Jn.8:12Then spoke Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. And Jn.14:6Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. We see simple teaching nothing complicated in it just do it! Ecc.12:13Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. 14For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil. The problem with today’s churches they have lost the fear of our Lord Jesus, Are we to please man or God? We had better learn Jesusology and not man’s vain philosophical theology but start concentrating on the Holy Spirit’s teaching us in the way we should go! (Jn.14:26 The Holy Ghost is the only one who can lead us into all righteousness of God for only the Spirit knows the mind of the Spirit, Jn.4:24, for the Spirit was the Father (Heb.12:9) and when you have seen the Father you see Jesus, Jn.14:7-9, 10:30, 12:45, 20:28; and Ac.20:28 etc. We must have works worhty of repentance; Ac.26:19-20!) Get right or perish!  Turn or burn!

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. Where are our overcomers; where is our tribulation in the Lord that we will suffer for Being His Followers;

John 16

1These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended. 2They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service. 3And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me. Mt.11:6And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me. Everyone today is not offended by Jesus because they know not how to live like Him in Spirit and in Truth, if they did we would be walking according to His teachings today and not our denominational contrivances trying to override God’s ordained scriptures with their vain translations according to man’ desires!

Josh 24:14Now therefore fear the LORD, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the LORD.

 15And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

Or live in the wrath of God’s condemnations;  20If ye forsake the LORD, and serve strange gods, then he will turn and do you hurt, and consume you, after that he hath done you good.

Philp.2:10That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 11And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. 12Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.

Hebrew13:8Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever. 9Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace; not with meats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein. 10We have an altar, whereof they have no right to eat which serve the tabernacle. 11For the bodies of those beasts, whose blood is brought into the sanctuary by the high priest for sin, are burned without the camp. 12Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate. 13Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach. 14For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come. 15By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name. 16But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased!

If it is not us then who will follow Him in word and deed? Only those who are going to Him for eternity!

Is.28:9Whom shall he teach knowledge? And whom shall he make to understand doctrine? Them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts: 10For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:

 11For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speaks to this people.

12To whom he said, this is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear (They say that speaking in tongues is not for us today, because they would not hear of it! Then they end up as these seen in the very next verse!)!

13But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken (Those who lack the true power of true Grace and His leading in Spirit and in truth by the Holy Ghost, Jn.14:15-18; See Ro.8:9!). 14Wherefore hear the word of the LORD, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem. 15Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves: 16Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.

Today’s Vain Church Doctrines

Is.28:7But they also have erred through wine, and through strong drink are out of the way (By the pride of self serving Pastors, Bishops etc. take away their pay and we would see how many would still preach His word!); the priest and the prophet have erred through strong drink (The worship of their congregations are what they seek today!), they are swallowed up of wine, they are out of the way through strong drink; they err in vision, they stumble in judgment (Seeking position in the High seats of power!). 8For all tables are full of vomit and filthiness, so that there is no place clean (For they have turned back to the old ways, in the days of Old!). Rv.3:14And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; 15I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 16So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. 17Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: 18I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eye salve, that thou mayest see.

We need not another lip service, but a service of true repentances, on our knees seeking Jesus’ face! Come join the true gospel of Jesus Christ’s teaching churches; who have but one thing on their minds and that is following their Master and Saviour in word and deed, to the end of days and on into Eternity for Forevermore!

A Prophetic Word by Stanley Frodsham

A Prophetic Word by Stanley Frodsham

Stanley Frodsham who lived from 1882-1969 and was born in England was at the center of the Pentecostal revival of his day. He was a friend to many of the great Pentecostal preachers including Smith Wigglesworth, the Jeffery Brothers, Howard Carter and others. He was affectionately called God’s Prophet with a Pen.

Writer, editor and teacher who ministered in the Pentecostal movement for over 60 years. For 30 years he was editor of the Pentecostal Evangel. He is mostly remembered  for the 15 books he wrote, the best known being a history  of the Pentecostal movement, ‘With Signs Following,’  (1926, enlarged in 1928, revised 1946) a collection of Smith  Wigglesworth’s sermons ‘Ever Increasing Faith’  (1924) and his biography of Smith Wigglesworth, ‘Apostle  of Faith’ (1948).

 

A Solemn Prophetic Warning

Prophecy by Stanley Frodsham 1965
It is written: “Despise not prophesying. Prove all things, hold fast that which is good” (I Thessalonians 5.-20, 21 KIV). The following are excerpts from prophetic words given to one who was under a heavy anointing. We believe all who read these solemn prophetic warnings should take diligent heed to them. “Believe in the Lord your God, so ye shall be established,- believe His prophets, so shall ye prosper” (II Chronicles 20.-20 KIV).

Great darkness is coming upon the countries that have heard My gospel but no longer walk in it. My wrath shall be manifested against all ungodliness. It shall come with great intensity. My judgments are literal, and not a thing to be lightly passed over. Before I visit the nations in judgment, I will begin at My house.

When I do cause My wrath to come upon the cities of the world, My people shall be separate. I desire a people without spot or wrinkle, and such shall be preserved by Me in the time of My wrath coming upon all iniquity and unrighteousness.

I am going to prepare you for the coming days by a hard path that will cause you to cry out continually unto Me. For when the going is easy, men do not seek Me, but rejoice in a temporary blessing. And when that blessing is removed, they so often turn this way and that way, but do not come to Me. I am showing you these things that you may seek Me continually and with great diligence. As you seek Me, I will open up truths to you that you have not seen before, truths that will enable you to stand in the last days.



Coming Glory and Deceiving Spirits

When I visit My people in mighty revival power it is to prepare them for the darkness ahead. With the glory shall come great darkness, for the glory is to prepare My people for the darkness. I will enable My people to go through because of the visitation of My Spirit. Take heed to yourselves lest ye be puffed up and think that you have arrived. Listen to the messengers, but do not hold man’s persons in admiration. For many whom I shall anoint mightily with signs and miracles shall become lifted up and shall fall by the wayside. I do not do this willingly; I have made provision that they might stand. I call many into this ministry and equip them, but remember that many shall fall. They shall be like bright lights, and the people shall delight in them. But they shall be taken over by deceiving spirits, and shall lead many of My people astray.

Hearken diligently concerning these things, for in the last days shall come seducing spirits 1Timothy 4:1) that shall turn many of My anointed ones away.

Many shall fall through divers lusts and because of sin abounding.

But if you will seek Me diligently I will put My Spirit within you (Ezekiel 36:27).
When one shall turn to the right hand or to the left hand, you shall not turn with them, but keep your eyes wholly on the Lord(His  Word, His Spirit, His Presence)

The coming days are the most dangerous, difficult and dark, but there shall be a mighty outpouring of My Spirit upon many cities; and many shall be destroyed.

My people must be diligently warned concerning the days that are ahead. Many shall turn after seducing spirits; many are already seducing My people. It is those who do righteousness that are righteous.

Many cover sins by great theological words, but I warn you of seducing spirits who instruct My people in an evil way.

Many shall come with seducing spirits and hold out lustful enticements.
You will find that after I have visited My people again, the way shall become more and more narrow, and fewer shall walk therein.

But, be not deceived, the ways of righteousness are My ways. For though Satan come as an angel of light (II Corinthians 11:13-15), hearken not to him; for those who perform miracles and speak not righteousness are not of Me.

I warn you with great intensity that I am going to judge My house and have a church without spot or wrinkle when I come. I desire to open your eyes and give you spiritual understanding that you may not be deceived, but may walk in uprightness of heart before Me, loving righteousness and hating every evil way.

Look unto Me, and l, will make you to perceive with the eyes of the Spirit the things that lurk in darkness, that are not visible to the human eye.

Let Me lead you in this way that you may perceive the powers of darkness and battle against them. It is not a battle against flesh and blood, for if you battle in that way, you accomplish nothing.

But if you let Me take over and battle against the powers of darkness, then they are defeated; and then liberation is brought to My people.

The Way of Deceivers

I  warn you to search the Scriptures diligently concerning these last days, for the things that are written shall indeed be made manifest.

There shall come deceivers among My people in increasing number, who shall speak forth the truth and shall gain the favor of the people, for the people shall examine the Scriptures and say, “What these men say is true.” Then when they have gained the hearts of the people, then and then only shall they bring out these wrong doctrines.

Therefore, I say that you should not give your hearts to men, nor hold people’s persons in admiration. For by these very persons shall Satan enter into My people.

Watch for seducers 1Timothy 3:13). Do you think a seducer will brandish a new heresy and flaunt it before the people? He will speak the words of righteousness and truth and will appear as a minister of light, declaring the Word.

The people’s hearts shall be won; they will bring out their doctrines, and the people shall be deceived.
(in our case,  the doctrine that dreams are a witness, dates-setting, etc.)

The people shall say, “Did he not speak thus and thus? And did we not examine it from the Word? Therefore he is a minister of righteousness. That he has now spoken we do not see in the Word, but it must be right, for the other things he spoke were true.” WOW!

Be not deceived, for the deceiver will first work to gain the hearts of many and then shall bring forth his insidious doctrines.

You cannot discern those who are of Me and those who are not of Me when they start to preach.

But seek Me constantly, and then when these doctrines are brought out, you shall have a witness in your heart that these are not of Me. Fear not, for I have warned you.

Many will be deceived, but if you walk in holiness and uprightness before the Lord, your eyes shall be opened, and the Lord will protect you. If you will constantly look unto the Lord, you will know when the doctrine changes, and you will not be brought into it.

If your heart is right, I will keep you, and if you will look constantly to Me, I will uphold you.

The minister of righteousness shall be on this wise: his life shall agree with the Word, and his lips shall give forth that which is wholly true, and it will be no mixture.
When the mixture appears, then you will know he is not a minister of righteousness.

The deceivers speak first the truth and then error to cover their own sins, which they love. Therefore, I exhort and command you to study the Scriptures relative to seducing spirits, for this is one of the great dangers of these last days.

I desire you to be firmly established in My Word, and not in the personalities of men, that you will not be moved as so many shall be moved. I would keep you in the paths of righteousness. Take heed to yourselves, and follow not the seducing spirits that are already manifesting themselves.

Diligently inquire of Me when you hear something that you have not seen in the Word, and do not hold people’s persons in admiration, for it is by this very method that Satan will hold many of My people.

The Way of Triumph

I  have come that you might have life and have it more abundantly, that you may triumph where I triumphed. On the cross I triumphed over all the powers of Satan, and I have called you to walk the same path. It is when your life is on the cross that you shall know the victory that I have experienced. As you are on the cross and seated in Me, then you shall know the power of the resurrection.

When I come in My glory, the principalities and powers in the heavenly places shall be broken. Fret not, for I have given you power whereby you may tread down the powers of darkness and come forth victoriously. It was on the cross that I triumphed over all the powers of the enemy. My life shall flow through you as you enter into these precious truths. Look unto Me, and appropriate My life. As your eyes and desires are toward Me, and you know what it is to be crucified with Me, then you shall live, and your anointing shall increase.

It was not in My life that I walked upon the earth, but it was in My life when I was upon the cross that I openly spoiled principalities and powers (Colossians 2:15). I am showing you truth that shall cause you to overcome, to have power over the wicked one-truth that will liberate you and those around you. You shall know also the fellowship of My sufferings. There is no other way whereby you may partake of this heavenly glory and reign with Me. “If we suffer, we shall reign with Him” (II Timothy 2:12 KJV).

I desire to make these truths real within you. As you keep them before you, you will liberate many who are in bondage. You will have revelations of those in darkness and will have the keys to liberate the captives.

Many seek to liberate, but they have not the keys. Upon the cross continually you will know the power of My resurrection that you may also partake of My glory.

As you are willing to walk with Me and rejoice in your sufferings, you shall partake of My glory. Look unto Me, for ye have need of power to overcome the wicked one and the bondage in other lives.

If you will indeed judge yourself, you shall not be judged 1Corinthians 11:31).
As you seek My face and desire to be cleansed by Me in all truth and sincerity of heart, I will judge you in the secret place, and the things that are in the secret place of your heart shall not be made manifest to others. I will do it in the secret place, and no man shall know it, and the shame that shall be seen on many faces shall not be seen on your face. Therefore, in love and mercy I am instructing you, and, therefore, have I said that if a man judge himself, he shall not be judged. It is not My good pleasure that the shame of My people be seen by all. How can I judge the world if I judge not first My own house? Hearken unto these things I am telling you. If you will not hearken to Me, your shame shall be evident to all.


God’s Part and Our Part

I would have you consider My life on earth-the anointing upon Me was great. Yet the temptations were great on every side, in one form and then in another, offering Me first the glory of the kingdoms of the earth, and then reviling and persecuting Me. There will be great glory given to My people, and yet the temptations shall be intensified from every side. Think not that with the glory there shall be no temptations or persecutions.

The glory to My church shall be great, and so shall the temptations from the enemy to turn My people from My paths. I am warning you that when the glory shall be manifested, the temptations shall be great, until very few that start shall finish.

First, there shall be offered them great worldly possessions, and then great revilings and unbelief.

Consider your Lord, that as He walked, so it shall be for you. There shall be need of great intensity of purpose.

At times, everyone shall rise up against you, simply to turn you from the course that I would put you on. It is written of Me that I set My face as a flint to go the direction My Father had prescribed for Me Isaiah 50:7). If you will finish the course the Lord has laid down for you, you will have to set your face as a flint with great determination-you must walk in the course laid down for you.

Many of your loved ones and those who follow with you shall persuade you and try to turn you from the course. With many words that seem right in the natural will they speak to you. Did not Christ rebuke Peter, who would turn Him from the course God had prescribed? (Matthew 16:22, 23)

Understand these two things and meditate upon them solemnly: the persecution and the darkness shall be as great as the glory, in order to try to turn the elect and the anointed ones from the path the Lord has laid down for them.

Many shall start, but few shall be able to finish because of the greatness of grace that shall be needed to be able to endure unto the end.
The temptation and persecution of your Lord was continuous. He was tempted by Satan in many forms throughout His entire life, and even on the cross when the ungodly cried out, “If thou be the Christ, come down from the cross.”

Think not that there shall be a time of no persecution, for it shall be from the time of your anointing unto the end-difficulties and great persecution to the end. The Lord must prepare you to be an overcomer in all things, that you may be able to finish the course.

The persecution shall increase, even as the anointing shall increase.

In paths of judgment and righteousness shall the Lord God lead His people and bring them into that place which He has chosen for them. For the Lord has chosen a place for His people, a place of righteousness and holiness where He shall encamp round about them, and all who will be led of the Lord shall be brought into this holy place, for the Lord delights to dwell in His people and to manifest Himself through His people. The holiness of the Lord shall be manifested through his people. Let the Lord lead you in difficult places. He led His people of old through the place where no man dwelt, where no man had passed through- in a place of great danger, and in the shadow of death. The Lord will indeed lead His people through such places, and yet He will bring them out into a place of great glory. Understand that the way toward the glory is fraught with great danger, and many shall fall to the right or to the left; many shall camp on lesser ground, but the Lord has a place of holiness, and no unclean things shall dwell among His people.

Put your trust in Him, and He will bring you into a place of holiness. He desires to bring His people into great glory, the like of which has never been seen: what the Lord will do for those who put their trust in Him.

It is a place of darkness and great danger that separates His people into the place He would have them walk in. He will protect them from the voices that would turn them from His path.
He will bring them through the dark places, and through the treacherous paths, out into the light of His glory. He will rejoice greatly over His beloved, and cause you to be filled with joy unspeakable. He seeks to lead His people into a new place of grace and glory where He will indeed encamp among them. Put your trust in Him, and He will surely bring you into this new place.

Fear not the days to come, but fear this only: that you shall walk in a manner pleasing to the Lord.
In this time I am ordering and setting up My church, and it shall indeed be pure, without spot or wrinkle. I will do a work in My beloved that has not been seen since the foundation of the world. I have shown you these things that you may seek the Lord diligently with all your heart, and that you may be a preserver of His people.

Run not to this one nor to that one,
for the Lord has so ordained that salvation is in Him, and in Him alone
.

You shall not turn to this shepherd, or to that one; for there shall be a great scattering upon the earth.
(this is exactly what I have perceived is happening)

Therefore, look unto Him, for He will indeed make these things clear to you.

You shall not look here nor there, for wells that once had water shall be no more. But, as you diligently seek Him, He shall increase your strength and your faith that He may be able to prepare you for this time that is coming.

The truths that I have revealed to you must become a part of you, not just an experience, but a part of your very nature.

Is it not written that I demand truth in the inward parts? It is the truth of the Lord expressed in your very being that shall hold you. Many shall experience the truth, but the truth must become a part of you-your very life.

As men and women look upon you, they will hear not only the voice, but see the expression of the truth. Many shall be overcome because they are not constant in My ways, and because they have not permitted the truths to become part of them. I am showing you these truths that you may be prepared and having done all, to stand.

The Naked truth before the Lord our God!

The Naked truth before the Lord our God!

Gen.2:25And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

2 Corinthians 5

 1For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.

 2For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven:

 3If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.

 

We will all stand before our Lord and saviour to answer for our accounts, for the time on His green earth and how we spent that time. Now anything that is of an unrighteous state will be burned as chaff in His presence! We will all stand before our God this Jesus on the Day of Judgment; we will stand before Him in a royal robe of righteousness and a crown of jewels for each of our friends’ family and all those who we have brought to the Lord or in front of Him bare and naked with nothing to show for ourselves! You see all of us after receiving His baptism of His Spirit, our Holy Ghost experience; we were all equipped to go out and do something with our gifts that we were endowed with at this baptism. This is knowing His will for each of us! If we get out of His will then we are in the flesh and not in the Spirit, and we become enmity against our God! We must come with the attitude as a child and be about pleasing our Lord all of the time! With simple love and devotion nothing else will do!

Hindering from without and from within:

This is why we must never stand in the way of anyone doing a good work for the Lord just because they don’t go to our church or belong to our congregation. See, we find many of our denominational churches doing the same thing, when they will make you have one of their slips of paper (A Certificate) that gives you the right to go out and do a work! Which is contrary to scripture, in Mark 9 we see in the 39th verse and on that Jesus forbid John or anyone from hindering a worker of the Lord’s doing something in His name! 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 on our part. 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.

You see when we are in front of our Lord on the Day of Judgment we will give an account for all actions which hinder His works, we will not be allowed to wear anything, we will be gathered up by His angels and carried to the Lake of Fire, screaming and crying all the way, with all the other human refuse!

Some of those are going to be those who cleverly cover up their lying schemes with vain theologies of man’s, by using scripture out of context, you know the ones which continually do as the flesh wants and does nothing for the Kingdom, they never ever go to help someone come to know the truth, because they don’t even know it themselves! What will they do when they get to Jesus and say Lord allow us to see God, can you take us to Him? Then Jesus will say; do you not know scripture? I told you in so many ways who I am. John14:1: 1Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

John14: 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. Jesus was saying literally, exactly who He is!!!

You see this is the true gospel that God was manifested in the flesh (1Tim3:16) to bring us salvation (Is.47:4), for there is no God besides Me spoken in Isaiah (Is.43:10, 11, 25), He said I am thy redeemer, and thy salvation (43:3-11), I know not any God besides Me ya there is none (Is45:5), nor will there ever be one besides Me (Rev1:8; Is.9:6)! Sounds like one God to me! For this reason Jesus was and is the living word that John spoke of in John1:14:14And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory (Is.42:8; 48:11-12) as of the only begotten (manifested as in became) of the Father,) full of grace and truth. But let us move on, all that we need to know about our Lord and saviour is in His Holy Bible for this exact reason that none should be lost, but first if we know not who Jesus is then we are still damned! John8:23, 24:  23And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.

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 (John3:13And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven (omnipresent even while talking to Nicodemus, because Jesus is God in now immortal flesh)).

So you see when you get to Heaven you must never say Lord I want to see God, for God is a Spirit as in Holy Spirit you see this in John 4:24 and when Jesus explains that there is not any good but one My Father which is in Heaven, Mark10:18And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? There is none good but one, that is, God. You see Jesus’ Father if you can call Him that is none other than the Holy Ghost who came over Mary because the Holy Spirit is the power and eternal life, the living soul of God, which is also the mind and all of God’s manifestation which He put in Mary, which is the Holy Thing (John3:34For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him. Why because He is omnipresent and cannot be divided and is in fact one and God who manifested Himself in the flesh! John12:45And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me.)! 1Tim3:16.

He, Jesus told it all and finally doubting Thomas finally got it in John20:28 we read who Jesus is; John10:30; 25Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness of me.26But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.27My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:28And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.29My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. 30I and my Father are one. 31Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him. Things have not changed much from today, you see when you see Jesus, you see God manifested in the flesh! That is why we must be baptized in His name for there is no other name by which salvation comes: Act4:12.

You see doubting Thomas finally caught on before it was too late for Him, John 20:28:  28And Thomas answered and said unto him, My LORD and my God. Now most assuredly if Thomas was out of line Jesus would have straightened it out right then and there if there was confusion to His true Identity; do you not think He would? For God cannot be of any part of a lie! But this still haunts in my heart; John 8:24: 24I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins. Jesus is our God manifested in the flesh as foretold in scripture! And they all will be taught by God Jer.31:33.33But 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.

You see God was looking ahead when He told this to Zechariah12:10And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn (John19:34, 37). You see Zechariah lived and started his ministry in 520- 508B.C. Now just say for the Trinitarians sake why would God the Father say to Zechariah 500 hundred years before Jesus’ time and say to Zechariah they will look upon me whom they have pierced instead of Him whom they pierced? Unless the Father was Jesus and God altogether one in the same, one person! As 1Tim3:16 explains! 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. Let us clear this one thing up right here and now, the only thing Triune about God our Lord Jesus is His Omnipresence, Omnipotence, and His Omniscience, this is Godliness and  The Godhead all rolled up in one person (Is.9:6)! That is all! But if you cannot get these scriptures you will never get what Paul was talking about in 1 Cor.15:27For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him.

28And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, which God may be all in all. Because Paul was in essence showing off here and came very close to revealing more than he should have (Because he went to the third heaven, which is the third age to come, 1Cor15:25-28); for there are some things revealed to us in which we are to leave alone and allow the Lord to reveal them to you, by the Holy Spirit (Rev.10:4)! This is why you need to be seeking out your own salvation with fear and trembling because to fall into the hands of an angry God is something no man can survive! (Phil.2:12; Heb10:31)

Ephesians 4:1I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called (Let me assure you, if you have been baptized in His Holy Spirit with the only sign that is proof of His Spirit and that is speaking in tongues; speaking in tongues would not have been given at the first as evidences unless it was the sign to be used to verify His presence in you: then you have been endowed with gifts that will allow you to be used in His ministry; and it is your duty to find out what they are and to be about His business when He returns to be in His will!) ,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 (one body one Spirit equals one person in anyone’s books), 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. 7But unto every one of us is given grace (gifts) according to the measure (of faith Heb.11:6) of the gift of Christ (for He alone knows who will love Him forever and not grow lukewarm, Rev.3:15-16). One body One Spirit equals One person! Now that we have learned the mature doctrines of the Lord and how He is not the author of confusion of man’s vain deceit, of the doctrines of fools, the Papist’s; let us not go to Hell along with them and their vain doctrines of men instead of true doctrine based on scripture of God’s anointed apostles; and not on philosophy of men!

Right now and until this millennium and the thousand year reign of Jesus is going to be Lord of Lords, God Almighty, Isaiah9: 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. This is who Jesus is; this is why we must all read all scripture and harmonize all of it together before we make an ungodly decision that might as well be polytheism worshipping Three manifestations of God instead of worshipping Him in His person and that is one and that one is Jesus Christ, for we are complete in Him: Col2: 8Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men (The Papist’s who gave us this philosophy of man’s foolishness this trinity doctrine), after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. 9For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.10And ye are complete in him (one), 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 (to be a new creature in Christ Jesus to go and sin no more equals truly being born again of His spirit) by the circumcision of Christ:12Buried with him in baptism (how many were baptized in Jesus name can I see a Hand? If you don’t know, then how do you know you are saved? You may speak in tongues but that is the gift of the Spirit when He comes to dwell inside of you but you will never see heaven without the blood of propitiation, forgiveness of your sins, for the blood of the sacrifice needs to be administered to the one being blessed with the blood of atonement, in baptism as you die with Him to sin, and washed in His pure redeeming waters, immersed in water in Jesus’ name Acts2:38; 4:12!!), wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.13And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;14Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;15And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it. Which He did when He did as the Father (the Holy Ghost in Him) instructed Him to do, He said I always do what pleases Him. (John8:23-*29*-32 & 1John3:22And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.) Jesus knew this when He was just 12 years old that he must be about his Father’s business Like 2:49 as should we all when He returns, or be as those who will be lost. The Lake of Fire where the worm dieth not!

So then the naked truth of all matters is this Jesus came to remove sin from off His children, those who will receive Him as a child! He rose again the third day and was seen by all His disciples but one (Judas). By the power that raised this Jesus from the grave we are all instructed to have this baptism or we are none of His, John3:3, 5, 6:3Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.5Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.6That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Rom.8:8, 9:8So 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. For this reason Paul rebaptized the disciples of John the Baptist if it were not necessary He would have left them alone in Acts 19 He Paul rebaptized them in the name of our Lord Jesus!! The naked truth!!!

Now let us in all maturity move into the realm of the true will of God in Jesus for all His children (Luke11:28But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.) ; Matt.12: 48But he answered and said unto him that told him, who is my mother? And who are my brethren? 49And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! 50For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother. And there is but one way to do this and that is to deny this flesh and seek His ways John14:6:6Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: without Holiness and righteousness that only comes from within Him we will not see Him in His glory and share in His delights! This is done by denying self and picking up our cross and following Him in all His Glories and ways! If we do not pick up our cross but still follow Him we are not worthy of Him and there will be gnashing of teeth, and wailing as we read in Mark9: 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 (That teach Trinity as a Doctrine, These were manifestations of God as He developed His relationship with man because man cannot grasp the supernatural realms of God, so He did what He needed to do so that man could understand who He is, but when you worship the trinity, and the relationships that He once had with His people you are in direct violation of this scripture, Luke9:62And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God. There has been different manifestations of God throughout history, from Abram to Moses to the New Testament but there always has been one God, and one person otherwise there would have been confusion and we know what God thinks of confusion, as an abomination, one of the greatest sins; do a word search on abomination and confusion and you will see it usually ends up with a stoning and being cut off as in dead; which we always have to put in conjunction with Mal.3:6 as well as Matt.24:35 and Heb.13:8 the Lord changes not, so we had better stay in His ways also!!! This is why we must be about His business of today to prepare for tomorrows Kingdom always looking forward and never behind to what He once was but what He is now, this is who we are to worship God in the flesh this Jesus Christ which means Saviour the Lord’s Anointed which is a symbol of the Holy Spirit being poured out in someone to do the work of the Spirit, God’s work in God’s flesh one person!!). Let us go back to where we were to catch the idea I was trying to relay a while ago.

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.50Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his saltiness, wherewith will ye season it?

The naked truth is this: the people that love this world and the things in it are going to keep all of them, the things of this world, but there is one problem that this world is going to turn into the Lake of Fire where the worm dieth not and the fire is not quenched!!!

Romans 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.

Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another. You see we are not to offend anyone with vain doctrines of the Papist that make people to worship the subjects instead of the object God Himself in the flesh, this Jesus of ours that is going to bring us into Himself, so we can join Him at His table at the banquet and the feast of the bridegroom with His church who has made herself ready, chase, spotless, righteous, and Holy. This true and naked truth the overcomers called such for this reason they have overcome this world and the flesh and learned to walk in the Spirit, as Jesus did (Rev.2, 3, search to see how to become an overcomer)!

If we ever get one thing out of this Bible we had better get a hold of this verse right here; the naked truth! 2Tim3:16, 17! 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.

Now many people believe that when or IF they receive the Holy Ghost that is all that is required of them, but this is the naked truth, this lie will lead straight to Hell Matt.7:13, 14:13Enter 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 thereat:14Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. The naked truth is this simple truth; that we have this Holy Scripture for one reason to use it! Not to contemplate as to what others should be doing and not we too! It is not enough to just do the things we want and leave the others left undone! We are to do all of His ways if we are to be His disciples, apostles, prophets etc. If we draw closer to Him He will draw closer to us that is the naked truth! Matt.7:7, 8: 7 Ask, 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.

Matthew 25:

1Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.2And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.3They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:4But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.5While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.6And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.7Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.8And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.9But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.10And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.11Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.12But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.13Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.14For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods.15And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey.16Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents.17And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two.18But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord’s money. 19After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them.20And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more. 21His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.22He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them.23His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord. 24Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed: 25And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.26His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed:27Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury.28Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents.29For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.30And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.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? 38 When 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.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 hungred, 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 an hungred, 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.

You see the naked truth is this:Luke9:62And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God. For this reason when we are baptized in His name according to Acts2:38, 39 we are up holding Matt.28:19, 20! See the naked truth is this; we are instructed as disciples of Jesus Christ, to take this gospel message to all nations and all peoples! Just that simple, in order to stay in His will; this is our new jobs! If we draw back from His word or His gospel or Him we are drawing away from Him and He will have no delight in us! Heb.10:38Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man drawback, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.39But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.

Here is the naked truth of the matter at hand: Ecc.12:10The 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 (Ministers of the Gospel of Jesus Christ as Lord of all) of assemblies (to show the correct pathway), which are given from one shepherd (one person).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.

Let us not leave this word that was given by God’s anointed men of faith, this Holy Bible for it is the road, the path, the narrow path, to the straight gate that is so hard to find but not if we use His directions in His book all laid out for those who love Him and are willing to die for Him just as He did for us! He will accept nothing less this is the naked truth my friends today and tomorrow, because you see yesterday is gone, and it too cannot be repeated especially if there was anything or any sin was in it or you are trying to crucify Jesus daily!!! And the naked truth of the matter is that you are living in sin and thus you will have no part of the inheritances!! How are you being merciful to our saviour trying to bank on grace as your blanket or covering for sin, that is not what grace was about! You have put the blood of Christ at your feet and walk with prideful flesh of distain for His word as well as for Him and His suffering for you! How are you going to stand before Him in that day and expect to have a robe of righteousness when there is nothing righteous about you!!! John in his later epistles says it all: you cannot have sin in your life and say that you are of Christ, for in Christ there is no sin and cannot be any!! You only deceive yourself with vain theology of those that are Hell Bound!!! It takes hard work to come to know Jesus in all His truths, and it cannot come without prayer and fasting and denying the flesh; and living in His truths and by the power of His Spirit being allowed to operate in you!!

1 John 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 (These verses were for those who have not received salvation yet, not for those who have received it!).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.

But herein lies the naked truth: 1John5:20And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.

You see there is but one person we have to be fearful of and Jesus is our God who we will answer to on the Day of Judgment!! Matt.10:28: 28And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him (one) which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. Matt.28:18: 18And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

This is written in: Luke 12

1In the mean time, when there were gathered together an innumerable multitude of people, insomuch that they trode one upon another, he began to say unto his disciples first of all, Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy (The Papist).2For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.3Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.4And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.5But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.6Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? 7But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.8Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God: 9But he that denieth me before men shall be denied before the angels of God.10And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven. Because the Holy Ghost is our God in Jesus John4:24 for there is but one Holy which is good in the Greek good means, blameless, perfect as in Matt5:48 etc. and Righteousness all Righteousness is in our God He alone hovered over the deep in Gen.1 and put life into all His creations by the power of His will, the will of His Spirit who hovered over Mary putting Himself in her His handmaiden!!! And this is who Jesus will submit to after all things have been put under His feet, 1Cor15:28. This is why we cannot blasphemy His words with our vain deceit and vain theology and philosophy of men, we must adhere to scripture, His word will lead us through to the next true realm or age to come!

God can manifest Himself anyway in which He wishes in messengers of the Lord to Abraham face to face or in A Cloud of Fire and Smoke to Moses, but one thing is for sure He will only manifest Himself to the public in one manor at a time for He is not the author of confusion!! Right now Jesus is our God in the Flesh now immortal flesh!! As all of us if we put our faith in Jesus Christ we will be raised at the last trump!!!

John3:16: 16For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.17For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.18He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son (Flesh) of God.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. John10:30: 30I and my Father are one. You do Jesus’ will we are in fact doing the will of God Himself!!! Matt10:34:34Think 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.  So if we are to receive our inheritances from the Most High God we would be doing all that our Lord Jesus has given us to do!!! This is the naked truth! Without Him in our life we are nothing but flesh for the Fire and the worm that dieth not and the fire that is not quenched!!!

This is the true since of grace in this age; and that is that you are not condemned and taken to Hell right now for all are under the protection of grace as long as they have not come to Him yet; this is where the grace ends!! For if we have come to know Him in truth of the Spirit then we have not but a fearful look to see before we are judged with all the rest of the abominations; you know the sinners who keep not His words, sayings, statutes, and commandments!!! Heb10:26For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,27But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries (Kind of blows that once saved always saved theory doesn’t it?).28He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:29Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden underfoot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace? 30For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.31It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

This is the naked truth, that God will not be mocked!!! Galatians 6:1Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.2Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.3For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.4But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.5For every man shall bear his own burden.6Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things. 7Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.8For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.  14But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.

As Paul himself and as we, should become new creatures, made of a supernatural fiber of an internal law, that we judge ourselves not according to this world but to the Lord’s word; His Holy scripture in the Holy Bible, this is by what we will be judged, this is the naked truth that we will stand before our God and give an account according to His words not those of the society that we are living in!!! 1Peter4:17-18

Gal.6:15For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.16And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God (The New Church of the Lord Jesus Christ).17From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus.18Brethren, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen. This is the grace that was spoken of that He will pour out, more grace, on us as we are tried with the sin of this world; to keep us from abiding in it like everyone else; we are to be His peculiar people who have set themselves apart for His works!!! This is the grace of sanctification, to give us more power to overcome this world not to get along with it and to be just like those who are perishing!! You step on His grace to try and hide your sin you have just fallen into Satan’s greatest lies!!! Those that are His are those who keep His commandments John14:15 and 15:14: This is the simple naked truths!!!

Now another simple naked truth is this: that our Apostles have given us the keys to heaven if we keep to all of their sayings as well as Jesus”; for they harmonize one another and never conflict with one another, if they do, you have the wrong interpretation and need to keep digging and praying and He will show you all truths, the Holy Spirit will bring all things to light! That is the reason why we must be about His business and doing all of His sayings when it comes to our salvation!!! Acts 2:38, 39 are the true baptism formula in which to receive the blood of the sacrifice applied to your soul or you will not be allowed into His Heaven without His blood applied to your soul, by going down in the water by immersion into His watery grave in His name, for there is no other name given by which we must be saved Acts4:12!!! Eph says there is one Lord one faith one baptism; this is how we are to do our baptisms in His name only!! And it harmonizes with Matt.28:19:19Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Jesus said I come in my Father’s name this is literal and figurative because all power and authority have been given to Him, Jesus in verse 18 of chapter 28 of Matt. for a matter of fact! But other places as well this is spoken of as well as I will have the Father which is the Holy Spirit send Himself and He will lead you in all truths which is called by My name, 1tim3:16 all the fulness of the Godhead was in Him. John12:44: 44Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me.45And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me.46I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.47And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.48He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken (no one will be able to withstand the power of His words, no one can rebuke His word and stand before Him; He will be punished forever! The naked truth is this; our Holy Bible is our passport to His realms and are living words of life, to fail to use them is, is to die the death of eternal damnation in the Lake of Fire where the Worm dieth not and the fire quencheth not!), the same shall judge him in the last day (John1:14).49For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.50And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak. All three are the same, one person, this is why God can be the head of the church as well as Jesus in Matt.16:18 and in 1Cor.10:32 because they are one in the same person!!! This is the only way to harmonize these two scriptures, just the same as Romans8:9 if you have not their Spirit you are none of His because they are one in the same!!! There is only one God and He is Spirit; John4:24: 24God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth (Knowing who Jesus is in truth). And if we know not who He is then how are we worshipping Him in truth, I refer you back to John8:24: This is the naked truth!!24I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins. Jesus was in God and was God and all things were made by Him for Him and Jesus spoke of the glory He had with Him before the world was, and He spoke of Abraham seeing Him and speaking with Him when He told the Pharisees John8:58 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. And it is no different today; people just do not want to throw away tradition for the truth!! You see the naked truth of the matter is this that the Father and the Son and the Holy Ghost are just titles of relationships, offices, or roles to man from God. But His name is Jesus; John5:43:43I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: not much difference today!!John14:26 :26But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. You see the name of the father and the Son and the Holy Ghost is Jesus; why; they are one in the same, one manifestation made flesh now immortal flesh for all to see!!! And to answer to, every knee will bow to whom? Rom14:10But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.11For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.12So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God. Our God in the flesh this Jesus our true God, one person! This is who we will stand before on the Day of Judgment!

Philippians 2:

1If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies,2Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.3Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.4Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.5Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:6Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:7But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:8And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.9Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:10That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;11And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.12Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. Rev.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. I refer you to Isaiah9:6For 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. And last but not least but still a naked truth; Matt.1:23Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. From Isa.7:14: 14Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. See we have harmony from the Old Testament to the New Testament, the naked truth of the matter!!! Rev.1: 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: 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. This is He we will all answer to, He said it all, He is the first and the last, (Matt.20:16So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen. Those are the ones who know the old ways are not to be first, the revelation of God’s presences in the past are just that, things of the past not to be worshiped for the last is to be first, the ones who understand this are those who are chosen!!!) There is no other God because 1Tim3:16 harmonizes these scriptures because all scripture is to be considered in our interpretations; 2Tim3:16, 17 without them we perish this is the naked truths!!!

All I have to say is this, you will face Him this Jesus in the Day of Judgment and you will have to tell Him why you did not do as this preacher told you, that there is but one baptism and it is in His name the name of our Lord Jesus which will save you in the last days, for there is power in His name!!! This is the only way to receive the blood of atonement or total propitiation from all sin!! By the name of the person who was in the grave and rose in three days, this is the grave you were buried in IF you were buried in His name!!! If I preach any other gospel I will be accursed Gal.1:8, 9 Jesus is the foundation to salvation there is no other way!!  8But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that, which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

9As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. The naked truth is that I cannot either; this gospel is all I will ever preach is Jesus!!

1Cor16:22If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha (“The Lord cometh;” namely, to execute vengeance upon him). You see in Deu.4: 2Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you. This is considered getting out of the path to the right hand or the left, spoken of in Matt.7:13, 14. You see here is the naked truth Deu.4: 10Specially the day that thou stoodest before the LORD thy God in Horeb, when the LORD said unto me, Gather me the people together, and I will make them hear my words, that they may learn to fear me all the days that they shall live upon the earth, and that they may teach their children. You see we have not kept our side of the contract to teach our children to fear Him who can cast into utter darkness or into the Lake Of Fire where the worm dieth not and the fire is quenched not!!! The naked truth Heb.12:24And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.25See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven:26Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.27And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.28Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:29For our God is a consuming fire.  How can we stand in that last day if we have not His words to support our actions? We will be utterly lost if we have not Him in us and we ourselves being about His business when He returns!! The naked truth is this we will be no better than the servant that started beating his fellow servants and getting drunk and the rest of it, IF we fail in one we fail in all His ways; because much has been given the much more is expected and He will cut us asunder when He returns and finds us taking care of our flesh and not about His business; at 12 years old Jesus knew better, how much more are we to understand? Luke12: 46The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers (not sounding so good for once saved always saved, is it?). And Matt24:42 but I will just give the heart of the matter the naked truth; verse 51And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. This does not sound like all is forgiven and covered by His grace, Matt.24:11And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. Those who preach this warm fuzzy God that will keep forgiving all even after you have supposedly repented; God is looking for overcomers who have learned to deny the flesh and pick up their crosses and follow Him; in word and deed!!! Rev.2:7; 2:11; 2:17; 2:26; 3:5; 3:12; 3:21; 21:7 because of John 16:33.

For we will be just as the sinners and the unbelievers for we are in fact doing just that not believing in His words, and His words will not come back void of their intentions, this is how we will know who are His sheep because they have heard His words being spoken by His prophets of today!!! John14:15If ye love me, keep my commandments. And john15:14Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.15Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.

This is how we will know the real church of the living God in the last days for they will be about all of His businesses!!! Those who study all of His scriptures and have found themselves approved of all them in seeking His will for the rest of their time on this rock; soon to be Lake of Fire; we call earth, where the worm dieth not and the fire is not quenched!!!

If we love anything of this world we are none of His for this world is passing away with everything in it, only things that are spiritual will remain until the end of all things!! If we hold to Romans8:1-39 as well as the rest of all His scriptures we will be forever in His presence hereafter; but if we walk after the flesh we perish:

In Closing

1 John 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 (not talking about your relational brother but any brother in the world, Any 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 for ever.18Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.19They went out from us, but they were not of us (The Papist); for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.20But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.21I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth.22Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.23Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.24Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father (John10:30).25And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.26These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you.27But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.28And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming.29If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him.

If we stay true to Him, He will stay true to us and give us all that we are in need of IF we keep His commandments; this is the naked truth that we must have works worthy of repentance or we perish!! Faith without works to back our faith we are no better than lip service and will be honored with the same rewards for we kept not His commandments, so why should He remain faithful to one who is not faithful to Him!!! There will be gnashing of teeth and the worm dieth not in the Lake of Fire and the fire is not quenched!!! Hell is just for that purpose for those who keep not His ways; which one are you? The naked truth is this you will stand in His presence in the last day, but will you remain in His presence or be hauled away screaming by His angels!!! Then we will see just how much grace covered your sins!! Naked truths flesh perishes in the Lake of fire were the worm dieth not: This world will perish in the Lake of Fire where the worm dieth not: Sin will perish in the Lake of Fire where the worm dieth not, Naked Truths!!!! So I leave you with your naked heart in this matter you know in the bottom of your hearts whether you are His and in His will, it doesn’t take an Einstein intelligence to know if you are truly His; all it takes is Honest love of a child and a heart that is naked before Him and yourself, when there is no condemnation, but if you have a shred of doubt, you need Him now; this is the naked truth!!!

The End

G. L. Boyett for this Sunday Dec.4th 2011 “In The End Times” of “The Latter Days” just before the beginning of sorrows!!

I leave you with this:

2 Corinthians 5

1For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.2For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven:3If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.4For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.5Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit.6Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord:7(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)8We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.9Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him.10For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.11Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are made manifest unto God; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences.12For we commend not ourselves again unto you, but give you occasion to glory on our behalf, that ye may have somewhat to answer them which glory in appearance, and not in heart: (Those who talk the Word of the Lord but walk in the lusts of the flesh!) 13For whether we be beside ourselves, it is to God: or whether we be sober, it is for your cause.14For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead:15And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.16Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more.17Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.18And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;19To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.20Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.21For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him(Jesus). This is the naked truth that we must be reconciled unto Him that is above all and in you all!!! Who has reconciled the world unto Himself!!! The naked truth God is in Christ Jesus one person; reconciling the world; His creation to Himself by the same way He created everything, by the power of His word!!!

Look the bottom line is this; the Lord has set the bar very high in order to come to Him and there is no way to achieve this; Matt5:48Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. Without the baptism of the Holy Ghost and with Fire! But He will reach further down than we can reach up if we truly keep our eyes on Him in faith and in sincere child like Love; always striving to come to Him in the fulness of all His commandments, sayings, statues, and precepts, in short His Word, not ours!!! He is the Creator we are the created, and we are to serve Him!!! Ecc.12:13Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. That’s it really simple!!! Now work out your own salvation with fear and you had better have some trembling going on or you really don’t know who God is!!!

1Tm.3:16 & 6:11-21; Isaiah60:1-22

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

~ Even so, if I be persecuted for His sake, I find myself in good company, in the company of the Elect! ~

 (Isaiah59:1-21) The Lord will always have a prophet, for His generation, (Rev.19:10)

Ecc.12:7-14; Ps.2:1-12; Is.55:1-13; Mal.3:16-18

Are we truly the chosen?

Are we truly the chosen?

The first will be last and the Last will be First Matt.19:30.

Matt.20:16: for many are called, but few be chosen!

(See Mt.7:13-14; 20:16; as well as 22:14)

   First and foremost I want to call your attention to one important fact, I am nothing and you are nothing but another of life’s distractions, in life’s grand scheme of things to come. The point is whether we are being used to His, Jesus’ glory. For many are called and few are chosen, so then, let us look into this teaching that our Lord was trying to teach us. For our God is an all consuming fire, Hebrews 12:29. In the entire Bible we see a passage of a sort, a porthole, yes a pathway to Jesus. For this bible is our God’s mind, and His way to Him, if indeed we are chosen. This is not my way to Him. I feel that this journey is to be taken by each individual. For each of us are to seek out, and to work his or her own salvation Phil.2:12, for this reason we cannot blame the ministers the preachers, or even the Pope in this matter, of our eternal salvation. We who preach this gospel will be held accountable, for this reason I will not deviate from scripture, for whoever preaches any other gospel is a cursed thing Gal.1:8, 9, two times, it is this important to get this right. For this reason I do not plan to please anyone with this kind of preaching, but the Lord has given me this, to preach to you. In the next verse 10 for do I now persuade men, or God?  Or do I seek to please men? For if I yet pleased men, I should not be a servant of Jesus Christ.

If we are to make a decision on where we were to live with our children for the rest of our days as well as theirs, we would hopefully do some praying and fasting beforehand and seek His guidance. Is not our salvation eternal, without end; for me forever is a long time. For we are to seek out His plan to salvation for there is but one way to Him and that is His way. For Jesus said in Matt.7:13, 14 Enter ye at the straight gate (narrow): for wide is the gate, (seek ye the kingdom and His righteousness) and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction and many there be which go in there at: 14: Because straight is the gate (How narrow) and narrow (difficult or confined) is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Matt. 7: 21 Not everyone 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. Now with all this brought to light any time in the Bible that we see a scripture used in more than one Book of the Bible you had better plan on it becoming doctrine, a truth that we can use for our salvation. For there is one baptism,

 

Ephesians 4 Walk in Unity

 1 I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, 2 with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, 3 endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 4 There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism; 6 one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.  With this being said we have not yet been chosen: this should be our calling. Unless we do the will of the Father we are not going to see Him. So if we do not have a daily walk with Him, and talk with Him how then, are we to learn what our calling is, what indeed is His plan for you?

For our calling into His service, we must train and prepare for His will. But with any placement into His service we are to be anointed, and there is only one anointing oil to be used, and that is from Him. By His anointing oil the very Spirit of Jesus Himself, we are to come to know Him, before we can be of any use to Him. For the Spirit of Truth is the mind of God our Lord Jesus Christ.  

                                                

 Spiritual Wisdom
6 However, we speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. 7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory, 8 which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
9 But as it is written:
“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
nor have entered into the heart of man
the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”

10 But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. 11 For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.
13 These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14 But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he

know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 15 But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one. 16 For “who has known the mind of the LORD that he may instruct Him?” But we have the mind of Christ.

Only if we truly have His Spirit in us with power and with evidences of speaking in tongues, this is the Fire that John the Baptist was speaking of. Matt. 3:1111 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. 12 His winnowing fan is in His hand, and He will thoroughly clean out His threshing floor, and gather His wheat into the barn; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.” For our plan of salvation has to be right or we will be in His hand, Heb. 10:31. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. Now all of these words are meaningless unless we come to understand, that Jesus our Lord and savior has given us everything we need to come to Him in His words of Truth and Life for no one will come to the Father but through Him  and unless we believe every verse in this Book of Life. For these very words are God given, God breathed to His chosen vassals, the prophets, apostles or God Himself when He spoke them through Jesus. For if we do not know that JESUS is God then we are lost already. 1 Tim. 3:16 for let us first look at 2 Tim.

The Man of God and the Word of God

10 But you have carefully followed my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, love, perseverance, 11 persecutions, afflictions, which happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra—what persecutions I endured. And out of them all the Lord delivered me. 12 Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. 13 But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. 14 But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, 15 and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly (furnished) equipped for every good work. Equipped for every good purpose is only being provided through the power of His Spirit, which is given according to our faith. For the Lord our Jesus told us to be ye perfect for your Father which is in heaven is perfect. Matt. 5:48. And if we see that God does not change neither does His scriptures or what are we to do with them. 2 Cor.5:19   that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and hascommitted to us the word of reconciliation.  Mal.3: 6 “For I am the LORD, I do not change; therefore you are not consumed, O sons of Jacob. 7 Yet from the days of your fathers You have gone away from My ordinances
And have not kept them.
Return to Me, and I will return to you,”
Says the LORD of hosts.
“ But you said,
‘ In what way shall we return?’ and the answer is return to your first Love. Rev. 2 5 Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place—unless you repent. For if we do not preach this gospel of Jesus as Lord God almighty we are not in harmony with scripture at all. For all scripture must be harmonized together, for God is not the author of confusion.  For 1 Tim 3:16 tells us who God is for there is only one who was manifested in the flesh and crucified for the remission of our sins.

                                                                         
The Great Mystery

14 These things I write to you, though I hope to come to you shortly; 15 but if I am delayed, I write so that you may know how you ought to conduct yourself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth. 16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness:

God was manifested in the flesh,
Justified in the Spirit,
Seen by angels,
Preached among the Gentiles,
Believed on in the world,
Received up in glory. And God said I will not share my Glory.

Gen. 3:15 And I will put enmity
Between you and the woman,
And between your seed and her Seed;
He shall bruise your head,
And you shall bruise His heel.”

 

Isa. 42:8 I am the Lord: that is my name:                                     
And My glory I will not give to another,
Nor My praise to carved images.

Behold, the former things have come to pass,
And new things I declare;
Before they spring forth I tell you of them.”

We see in Isa. 9: 6.

For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace

For our Lord humbled himself and came to earth in the flesh, for God is immortal, God is a Spirit, John 4:24 God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”  God cannot die, so then who would have the sinless blood for us if it were not from him manifesting Himself in the flesh; there could not be any other perfect sacrifice.

John 4: 23 But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. 24 God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”  In order to pay the price of sin for His people, by God Himself with His very own blood,

11 For My own sake, for My own sake, I will do it;
For how should My name be profaned?
And I will not give My glory to another.

So we see here that beforehand He indeed told us His plans, by His prophets and His chosen vassals.

Gen. 3:15 And I will put enmity
Between you and the woman,
And between your seed and her Seed;
He shall bruise your head,
And you shall bruise His heel.”

We see Jesus teaching on this same subject. We see Jesus, revealing Himself to us through His scriptures.  John 10:30.  “I and My Father are one.” For God is the Word for only in His word is there life, the one who speaks things into existence.

                                                                               

John1: The Eternal Word

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. John 1: 10 He was in the world and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not. Jesus said before Abraham He was and that Abraham saw His day and rejoiced. John 8: 58 Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.”56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day, and he saw it and was glad.” For if we do not know Jesus as Lord and God Almighty we are condemned already.

John 8:23.24

23 And He said to them, “You are from beneath; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world. 24 Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins.”  Even doubting Thomas figured it out in the end.

Seeing and Believing John 20

24 Now Thomas, called the Twin, one of the twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. 25 The other disciples therefore said to him, “We have seen the Lord.”
So he said to them, “Unless I see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe.”
26 And after eight days His disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them. Jesus came, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, “Peace to you!” 27 Then He said to Thomas, “Reach your finger here, and look at My hands; and reach your hand here, and put it into My side. Do not be unbelieving, but believing.”
28 And Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!”
29 Jesus said to him, “Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”  The Old Testament is the shadows of Jesus, and we can actually see Him in the New Testament, being scripture fulfilled. From every book of the Bible form Gen. to Rev, we see Jesus revealing Himself to us. Rev.1:10   “I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day, and I heard behind me a loud voice, as of a trumpet, 11 saying, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last,”

The Lord of all and all Revelation

17 And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. But He laid His right hand on me, saying to me, “Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last. 18 I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death. So on this gospel I will stand and profess Jesus is Lord. For God said Beside Me there is no other, I am Lord, Savior, and our Redeemer.

Isa. 54:5

For your Maker is your husband,
The LORD of hosts is His name;
And your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel;
He is called the God of the whole earth.

Isa.43:10, 11

 10 “You are my witnesses,” says the LORD, “And My servant whom I have chosen,
that you may know and believe Me,
and understand that I am He.
Before me there was no God formed,
nor shall there be after Me.
11  I, even I, am the LORD,
And besides Me there is no savior. For these things are brought to bring forth light of His coming.

Isa. 28: 10, 11, 12

10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept,
Line upon line, line upon line,
Here a little, there a little.”
11 For with stammering lips and another tongue
He will speak to this people,
(This is the evidence of the Holy Spirit filled testimony of His saints, bring revelation to light in a dark, ever seeking but never perceiving world, because they knew not the Holy Ghost)
12 To whom He said, “This is the rest with which; You may cause the weary to rest,”
And, “This is the refreshing”: Yet they would not hear: Because the wisdom of God is but foolishness to man.

Acts 2

Coming of the Holy Spirit

1 When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. For we see that Peter and the disciples received the keys to the kingdom of heaven.  For they were shown the truth and the way by Jesus Himself: For this reason should not we follow their teaching and scripture to the letter? For God our Lord and Savior gave to them the proper ways. For this is the Rock that His church is founded.

                                                       

 The Chosen

Now if we perceive the word correctly we must have the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. Just how we are to obtain this Holy Spirit was revealed in Acts 2:1-3, 38, and 39. For in John Jesus speaks to Nicodeamus;

John 3

The New Birth

1 There was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. 2 This man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, “Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from God; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him.”
3 Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
4 Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?”
5 Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ 8 The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
9 Nicodemus answered and said to Him, “How can these things be?”
10 Jesus answered and said to him, “Are you the teacher of Israel, and do not know these things? 11 Most assuredly, I say to you, we speak what we know and testify what we have seen, and you do not receive our witness. 12 If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things? 13 No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man who is in heaven. 14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, 15 that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
18 “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. 21 But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”

John the Baptist Exalts Christ

Jn.3:22 After these things Jesus and His disciples came into the land of Judea, and there He remained with them and baptized. 23 Now John also was baptizing in Aenon near Salim, because there was much water there. And they came and were baptized. 24 For John had not yet been thrown into prison.
25 Then there arose a dispute between some of John’s disciples and the Jews about purification. 26 And they came to John and said to him, “Rabbi, He who was with you beyond the Jordan, to whom you have testified—behold, He is baptizing, and all are coming to Him!”
27 John answered and said, “A man can receive nothing unless it has been given to him from heaven. 28 You yourselves bear me witness that I said, ‘I am not the Christ,’ but, ‘I have been sent before Him.’ 29 He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice. Therefore this joy of mine is fulfilled. 30 He must increase, but I must decrease. 31 He who comes from above is above all; he who is of the earth is earthly and speaks of the earth. He who comes from heaven is above all. 32 And what He has seen and heard, that He testifies; and no one receives His testimony. 33 He who has received His testimony has certified that God is true. 34 For He whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God does not give the Spirit by measure. 35 The Father loves the Son, and has given all things into His hand. 36 He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.” So we are back to John 8: 24, where Jesus Himself says it more plainly, clearer than any of us could ever do. For His word will not come back void.  24 Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins.” Isa 53 says 11 So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;
It shall not return to Me void,
But it shall accomplish what I please,
And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
12 “For you shall go out with joy,
and be led out with peace;
The Mountains and the hills
shall break forth into singing before you,
and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
13 Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress 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.” For this reason the Holy Spirit must be preached, for this is the rest and unspeakable joy that is spoken of. Acts 2: 16 But this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel:
17 ‘ And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God,
That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh;
Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
Your young men shall see visions,
Your old men shall dream dreams.
18 And on My menservants and on my maidservants
I will pour out My Spirit in those days;
and they shall prophesy. (And then will come the end times, that will be revealed after the rapture)
19 I will show wonders in heaven above
and signs in the earth beneath:
Blood and fire and vapor of smoke.
20 The sun shall be turned into darkness,
and the moon into blood,
before the coming of the great and awesome day of the LORD. (But His children still will need to act now, and follow these last scriptures now, before it is too late.)
21 And it shall come to pass
that whoever calls on the name of the LORD
shall be saved.  
   

For this very reason, we must know the name in which there is salvation and that very name is Jesus. For without the blood of Jesus applied to us at baptism, by His name being spoken over us at baptism, there is no remission of sins. The power is in the name of Jesus. For in the days of the Old Testament the blood of the sacrifice was applied to the mercy seat, and the sin rolled over till the next year. This is the atonement, but Jesus came that none should be lost, and all should be saved forever by His name. This is the remittance or remission of sins, once and for all forever. Acts 2: 38, 39, 38 Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.” So we see here the only way by which we must be saved. Acts4:12 Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”

For in the beginning when Moses was to build or set up the Tabernacle (the church in the wilderness) he was to do it exactly as the Lord described to him, down to who was to do the work, as in the craftsmen to do the work, as in who the High priest was going to be, as well as who was to be his attendants. We are to worship Him according to His requirements, not in our ways. Because His ways are not our ways: For we are to worship Him in Truth and in Spirit.

So we see that when we apply the blood of Jesus to our souls we become His property ready to receive His Spirit; it takes repentance, baptism in His name, and the infilling of His Spirit to be reborn, then we can become His chosen, ready to lead an overcoming life. For by this same spirit will we be raised up in the last days, Romans 8:11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you. John 8:18 No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have the power to lay it down and to take it again. This commandment have I received of My Father. For if we are of Him, we will then do the will of the Father; John8: 29, for I do always those things that please Him. 51 Verily, Verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death. For the Lord does know who will receive His word. John6:33 For the bread of God is He who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.”
34 Then they said to Him, “Lord, give us this bread always.”
35 And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me shall never hunger, and he who believes in me shall never thirst. 36 But I said to you that you have seen me and yet do not believe. 37 All that the Father gives me will come to me, and the one who comes to me I will by no means cast out. 38 For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me. (The Holy Spirit now manifested in the flesh) 39 This is the will of the Father who sent Me, that of all He has given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day. 40 And this is the will of Him who sent me that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day.”

The gifts of the Spirit

In order for us to receive His Spirit we must be of the Father by the washing away of our sins by the blood, in His name, for the remission of sins. If we were indeed baptized in any other way we must be re-baptized in His name, otherwise Paul would not have rebaptized the other 12 of John the Baptist’s disciples in                                             

  Acts19 

Paul at Ephesus

1 And it happened, while Apollos was at Corinth, that Paul, having passed through the upper regions, came to Ephesus. And finding some disciples 2 he said to them, “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?”
So they said to him, “We have not so much as heard whether there is a Holy Spirit.”
3 And he said to them, “Into what then were you baptized?”
So they said, “Into John’s baptism.”
4 Then Paul said, “John indeed baptized with a baptism of repentance, saying to the people that they should believe on Him who would come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.”
5 When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. 6 And when Paul had laid hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke with tongues and prophesied. The Lord changes not neither does His word, and we see only one scripture that says that there is a day that no one may do the works, John9:4 I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work. (After the Rapture) 5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.”  This light is His Spirit working in us to the Glory of the Father. For after we are lifted up to Him at the rapture then His Spirit will also be lifted up and the antichrist will be revealed, in the beginning of the last days. For if the Lord did not spare Israel from the first three plagues in the Exodus He is not going to spare His elect, He said if the days were not shortened even the elect would have perished (So His chosen, who have made themselves ready, by the power of the Holy Ghost, will be pulled before the tribulations start). Matt.24:22 and Mark 13:  20 And unless the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake, which He chose, He shortened the days. Speaking of the Israelites, for this is the testing and fire in which He will be with them that they burn not. These last days will wax more and more detestable before the rapture; we will still have to prove ourselves worthy of His calling, for faith without works is dead, James 2:                                                         

Faith without Works Is Dead

14 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? 17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
18 But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. 19 You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble! 20 But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead? 21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar?

For in Daniel we see the faith by which God our Lord Jesus is looking for. Dan.3: 24 Then King Nebuchadnezzar was astonished; and he rose in haste and spoke, saying to his counselors, “Did we not cast three men bound into the midst of the fire?”
They answered and said to the king, “True, O king.”
25 “Look!” he answered, “I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire; and they are not hurt, and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.” There is only one way to have this kind of faith and that is the baptism of the Holy Ghost for this reason we must give evidence of His presence in us, by our fruit we will be known of whom we belong to. So by indeed, we are saved by His grace, but the grace that is being talked about is the grace of God that has revealed Himself to us in order for us to be saved in His name.

For we are predestined for He knew who would receive His word before hand, His chosen. Romans8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groaning which cannot be uttered. 27 Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. 29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified. When the Spirit is present in us we have not just understanding and peace that passes all understanding. Phil4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!
5 Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand.(this being the Holy Spirit in you)
6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Evidence of the Fruit of the Spirit

Bear fruit worthy of repentance and of your salvation John 3:7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to his baptism, he said to them, “Brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? 8 Therefore bear fruits worthy of repentance, 9 and do not think to say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father.’ For I say to you that God is able to raise up children to Abraham from these stones. 10 And even now the ax is laid to the root of the trees. Therefore every tree which does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. (If you have not this Holy Ghost with the Fire, you had better start looking into it, for it is this Spirit that will bring forth those out of the grave and raise those that are still left alive.) 12 His winnowing fan is in His hand, and He will thoroughly clean out His threshing floor, and gather His wheat into the barn; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire (those without His Spirit). For we will see that speaking in tongues, prophesying, sighs and wonders these are the evidence of the Spirit. Nowhere in my Bible does it say that these are not for today,

Acts 10:30 So Cornelius said, “Four days ago I was fasting until this hour; and at the ninth hour I prayed in my house, and behold, a man stood before me in bright clothing, 31 and said, ‘Cornelius, your prayer has been heard, and your alms are remembered in the sight of God. 32 Send therefore to Joppa and call Simon here, whose surname is Peter. He is lodging in the house of Simon, a tanner, by the sea. When he comes, he will speak to you.’ 33 So I sent to you immediately, and you have done well to come. Now therefore, we are all present before God, to hear all the things commanded you by God.”

Preaching to Cornelius’ Household

34 Then Peter opened his mouth and said: “In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality. 35 But in every nation whoever fears Him and works righteousness is accepted  by Him. 36 The word which God sent to the children of Israel, preaching peace through Jesus Christ—He is Lord of all37 that word you know, which was proclaimed throughout all Judea, and began from Galilee after the baptism which John preached: 38 how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with (In) Him. 39 And we are witnesses of all things which He did both in the land of the Jews and in Jerusalem, whom they killed by hanging on a tree. 40 Him God raised up on the third day, and showed Him openly, 41 not to all the people, but to witnesses chosen before by God, even to us who ate and drank with Him after He arose from the dead. 42 And He commanded us to preach to the people, and to testify that it is He who was ordained by God to be Judge of the living and the dead. 43 To Him all the prophets witness that, through His name, whoever believes in Him will receive remission of sins.”

The Holy Spirit Falls on the Gentiles

44 While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell upon all those who heard the word. 45 And those of the circumcision who believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out on the Gentiles also. 46 For they heard them speak with tongues and magnify God.
Then Peter answered, 47 “Can anyone forbid water, that these should not be baptized who have received the Holy Spirit just as we have?48 And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then they asked him to stay a few days. Jesus in John says in Chapter 14 verses 15 through 23; 15 “If you love Me, keep My commandments. 16 And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. 18 I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.

Indwelling of the Father and the Son

19 “A little while longer and the world will see me no more, but you will see me. Because I live, you will live also. 20 At that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in me, and I in you. 21 He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.”
22
Judas (not Iscariot) said to Him, “Lord, how is it that You will manifest Yourself to us, and not to the world?”
23 Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him. 24 He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father’s who sent Me, John 14:

The Father Revealed

7 “If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.”  Col.2: 6 As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, 7 rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving.
8 Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ.(This Trinity Doctrine it is not in the scriptures, it was started by the Roman Catholic Church, God dwells in Christ Jesus, get over it, look to John 10:30) 9 For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; 10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power. For in this we see that there is no power in this man made tradition of the Trinity baptism, which was issued by the Council of Nicaea in 325. For all power and authority is and was given to the Lord our God in the Flesh, this man Jesus. For Jesus said I come in my Father’s name, I and the Father are one John10:30 and John 14: Explains the gift of the Holy Spirit.

The Gift of His Peace

25 “These things I have spoken to you while being present with you. 26 But the Helper, (The Comforter) the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you. So then we see that if you were indeed a disciple of Jesus and you had been with Him from the beginning, then you would most certainly know what the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit should be, especially after seeing the Transfiguration in the garden on Mt. Olive for in Matt. 28:

The Great Commission

16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had appointed for them. 17 When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some doubted.
18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name(it is singular, there is only one name that fits here and that is Jesus)

of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit (these are titles of one Spirit manifested in different respects to time and function), 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen. For in this passage we see that the word name is in the singular tense, and all of the disciples of Jesus knew who He was, for they were with Him at His transfiguration in the garden. For this reason Jesus gave the keys to heaven to the disciples and the power to bind in heaven and on earth. This is the very reason why we must be baptized in His name for there is no other way to salvation but through Him the simple fact is that the power of His name is what is required in order for the blood of the sacrifice to be applied to beneficiary.

John14

The Way, the Truth, and the Life

1 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In 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. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. 4 And where I go you know, and the way you know.” 5 Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?” 6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. (So you had better get baptized in the only name that counts)

The Father Revealed

7 “If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.”
8 Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us.”
9 Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? 10 Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works. 11 Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves. (Jesus and God are one in the same, this is the only way we can harmonize 1Tim3:16 as well as Isaiah, Jer. Zech. on and on.)                                     Now how does one come to God?

We have seen up to now that we are to repent of our sins (this is a turning away from all sins, changing OF ONES MIND) and to turn away from the flesh and from the world of death which is the sin that is present in all flesh. For if we seek our lives then we will

lose it, but if we lose our lives for Him then we will gain it John12:24 Most assuredly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much grain. 25 He who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. 26 If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also. If anyone serves Me, him My Father will honor. For this is unto the Royal Law that we Love him as ourselves, and that we seek His will above and beyond ours James2: 8 If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you do well; 9 but if you show partiality, you commit sin, and are convicted by the law as transgressors. For we were purchased for a price that is beyond our knowledge and understanding 1 Cor.6:19 Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you (if you speak in tongues), whom you have from God, and you are not your own? 20 For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s. John 10:27 “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them and they follow Me. For we must pick up our cross and die daily for Him, Matt.10:38 & 16:24, Luke9:23 & 14:27  and Mark 8:34 When He had called the people to Himself, with His disciples also, He said to them, “Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. We see this in all the books of the gospels and in Acts also, so I feel we have a president to set doctrine here. This is a must do. But we see that not all are willing to bare the cross, for the cost of it is all that we have. For unless we seek Jesus with all of our hearts mind, spirit, strength, and soul, and come in a child like Love and faith; then we have missed His mark already.

Counting the cost

We in all honesty must approach the throne of grace with caution, for the Lord our God sees to the heart of man. For nothing is hidden by which He cannot see it. We must be able to approach this with the Love of a child, for Jesus said that the kingdom is liken unto them, we had better be that innocent.

Matthew 18

Who Is the Greatest?

1 At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, “Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” 2 Then Jesus called a little child to Him, set him in the midst of them, 3 and said, “Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. 4 Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5 Whoever receives one little child like this in My name receives Me. For we need a humble child like Love so that we can be of service to our brothers and sisters before we even look to the cost

to our own personal happiness, for if we are doing God’s will, this should be our unspeakable joys, for our name will be written in the Book of Life. For eternity from or apart from God is just too unbearable to consider. If we seek the kingdom with all of our hearts, mind, spirit, strength, and soul then all things will be added to us, to begin His work in us. For Jesus commissioned us to do the will of the Father. For we see in Luke Jesus at twelve years old knows what He is to be doing, for this is our example to follow as well, Luke 2:49 And He said unto them, How is it that ye sought Me? Wist (knew) ye not that I must be about My Father’s business?

For we must, for the Love and the Fear of the lord, we must be doing His will when He comes back.

Jesus Teaches the Fear of God

Luke 12:4 “And I say to you, My friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. 5 But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear Him who, after He has killed, has power to cast into hell; yes, I say to you, fear Him!  There for we are to be seeking His kingdom at all times, this is our job. For He is the creator and we are His creation; we are put here to have fellowship with our Lord.

The Faithful Servant and the Evil Servant

Luke12:35 “Let your waist be girded and your lamps burning; 36 and you yourselves be like men who wait for their master, when he will return from the wedding, that when he comes and knocks they may open to him immediately. 37 Blessed are those servants whom the master, when he comes, will find watching. Assuredly, I say to you that he will gird himself and have them sit down to eat, and will come and serve them. 38 And if he should come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. 39 But know this that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. 40 Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.” 41 Then Peter said to Him, “Lord, do You speak this parable only to us, or to all people?42 And the Lord said, “Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his master will make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of food in due season? 43 Blessed is that servant whom his master will find so doing when he comes. 44 Truly, I say to you that he will make him ruler over all that he has. 45 But if that servant says in his heart, ‘My master is delaying his coming,’ and begins to beat the male and female servants, and to eat and drink and be drunk, 46 the master of that servant will come on a day when he is not looking for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in two and appoint him his portion with the

unbelievers(These are those who say I will wait for a more appropriate day to be saved and be convert).47 And that servant who knew his master’s will, and did not prepare himself or do according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. 48 But he who did not know, yet committed things deserving of stripes, shall be beaten with few. For everyone to whom much is given, from him much will be required; and to whom much has been committed, of him they will ask the more.

The scriptures are our recipe for our portion, the food we will eat, for He is the bread of life. We must keep His sayings, His teachings, His will for us this is mandatory.

The Narrow Way

Luke13:22 And He went through the cities and villages, teaching, and journeying toward Jerusalem. 23 Then one said to Him, “Lord, are there few who are saved?”
And He said to them, 24 “Strive to enter through the narrow(on the difficult path)gate, for many, I say to you, will seek to enter and will not be able. 25 When once the Master of the house has risen up and shut the door, and you begin to stand outside and knock at the door, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open for us,’ and He will answer and say to you, ‘I do not know you, where you are from,’ 26 then you will begin to say, ‘We ate and drank in Your presence, and You taught in our streets.’ 27 But He will say, ‘I tell you I do not know you, where you are from. Depart from Me, all you workers of iniquity.28 There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, and yourselves thrust out. 29 They will come from the east and the west, from the north and the south, and sit down in the kingdom of God. 30 And indeed there are last who will be first, and there are first who will be last.”

The order of First and Last

Now if we indeed have learned anything from this teaching, lesson, or sermon which ever you chosen to call it. We must find in our hearts the true way to Jesus. Heb. 8:             

A New Covenant

7 For if that first covenant had been faultless, then no place would have been sought for a second. 8 Because finding fault with them, He says: “Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah— 9 not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they did not continue in My covenant, and I disregarded them, says the LORD. 10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the LORD: I

will put My laws in their mind and write them on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. 11 None of them shall teach his neighbor, and none his brother, saying, ‘‘Know the LORD,’ for all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them.12 For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.”
13 In that He says, “A new covenant,” He has made the first obsolete. Now what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away.

 Now this is where it gets tricky, for so many people think that they have the knowledge to discern the word of God, but unless you have the Holy Spirit to be able to discern His gospel and realize His true meanings, you are on a slippery slope. For we see that if we seek Him in all humbleness, and in a worship of giving Him all the glory, He will reveal all things to us: If we are sincerely seeking His face and heart with all of our hearts. For God is Love and unless we approach Him in Love for Him and His people we will not find any answers. It was not till I learned to humble myself, for His glory, for His people and to pray intercessory prayer for others, with all my heart, with all my faith, did our Lord start to reveal His secrets, and speak unto me as a friend, and let me know His will for me. This is the reason I have decided to make Him first and foremost in all things in my life. For Jesus said in Luke 8: 21 And He answered and said unto them, My mother and My brethren are these which hear My words, and do it. So then if we put ourselves in a role of the servant to all, then we shall be the greatest. But we are to do this in the Love of Jesus, and He will sort out the rest, for if we seek this out just to keep the door open to us so that we may see eternity, then we have still missed the mark. For nothing can be done on our own but the will of the Father in us, He does the works by the power and authority of His Spirit. For Jesus said I can do nothing on My own Luke 5:30 I can of Myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is righteous, because I do not seek My own will but the will of the Father who sent Me (And who is in Him). So then when we learn to be last we automatically become first, but this is by His choice. For then we become His chosen. To be about His business, an heir to His throne; which is an all consuming business to be in for there is no room for mistakes. For there is no time for debating for consideration, we must be ready and willing to follow Him at all cost, for if anything is between you and Him and He is not first and center of your priorities seeking the Love of the Lord, we will find ourselves in trouble in His eyes.                                                       

The Cost of Discipleship

Luke 9:57 Now it happened as they journeyed on the road, that someone said to Him, “Lord, I will follow You wherever You go.”
58 And Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head.” 59 Then He said to another, “Follow Me.”
But he said, “Lord, let me first go and bury my father.”
60 Jesus said to him, “Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and preach the kingdom of God.” 61 And another also said, “Lord, I will follow You, but let me first go and bid them farewell who are at my house.” 62 But Jesus said to him, “No one, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.” This is the cost we must bear; for we must put behind us the old ways, and never look back, just forward to seeing Him, and hearing those special words. Well done My good and faithful servant with whom I am well pleased, come and dine with Me at My table.

So in the end we find the secrets to salvation, repent, be baptized in Jesus name, and be baptized in the Holy Spirit with evidence of speaking in tongues, be about your Fathers’ business in all that we do and say, for if we are ashamed of this gospel then He will be ashamed of us also. This is the day of salvation, for there is no other, when the Lord gives an opportunity to seek Him and we chose to pass it by; then we have committed blasphemy (because you have put your ways over His and consider His ways of no value, you have put yourself above the maker, you are saying His ways are a cursed way not needing you attention) and have considered the blood of Jesus of no account or importance. Still the sad thing is that you have not even cared about yourself and the eternity you are going to spend without our Lord and Savior, because you called Him a liar, because you heeded not the call. That unbearable heat of that Lake of Fire, and the never ending thirst, and torment from the tormentor, I just don’t see how anyone could stand up to that for eternity!

Christ Brings Division

  Matt.10:34 “Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword. 35 For I have come to ‘set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law’; 36 and ‘a man’s enemies will be those of his own household.’[e] 37 He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. 38 And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. 39 He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it.

This is how we become the First when we become last. His chosen! Repent! Be one of His chosen right now! Come to the Lord! Come to Jesus! Jesus is calling! The alternative is weeping and gnashing of teeth and the lake of fire, where the worm dieth not.

The Son of Man Will Judge the Nations

Matt.25:31

31 “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. 32 All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. 33 And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. 34 Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35 for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; 36 I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’
37 “Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? 38 When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? 39 Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ 40 And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’ 41 “Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: 42 for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink; 43 I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’
44 “Then they also will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?’ 45 Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ 46 And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”

For if the righteous scarcely be saved, 1 Peter 4: 17 For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?

18 Now “If the righteous one is scarcely saved,
where will the ungodly and the sinner appear?”

19 Therefore let those who suffer according to the will of God commit their souls to Him in doing good, as to a faithful Creator.

Isa.66:24“And they shall go forth and look
Upon the corpses of the men
Who have transgressed against Me.
For their worm does not die,
And their fire is not quenched.
They shall be abhorrence to all flesh.”

Jer. 7: 20 Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: “Behold, My anger and My fury will be poured out on this place—on man and on beast, on the trees of the field and on the fruit of the ground. And it will burn and not be quenched.”

Sounds to me to be a bad day that never ends and as many times as we see in these scriptures in the Bible, I’ll guarantee it’s not going to be a place that I would want to be around! Heed ye the word of the Lord!
