Suffering in the flesh for our LORD
Ro.8: 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.
Ro.8:16The 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.
Jesus said: 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.
Jesus said the flesh profiteth nothing; we are saved by His word, Mt.4:4 and Lk.4:4! When we face hardships, it is for two reasons, sometimes it is just life, and sometimes we do it to ourselves in our lifestyles that disagree with His given word for chastisement, Rev.3:19-22. God told Elijah that He was not in the earth quake, nor in the fire, nor in the wind, but answered Elijah in a small voice: 1 Kgs.19:11And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the LORD. And, behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the LORD; but the LORD was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the LORD was not in the earthquake:
12And after the earthquake a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.
One good thing to note, if we are being chastised from the Lord Jesus, it is because we are still His and not an orphan that He has given over to strong delusions and given us up to a reprobate heart, for He is still trying to lead you to Him, so it is a good thing in the realms of salvation, for He has not given up on you. It sometimes is hard on us at the time to bear with Him but it is for us to draw closer to Him, and seek Him in the fulness of His Words: For when we do this, it brings in our acts of faith knowing He is God and that we are His servants and that we must rely on His benevolence to sustain us! In all actuality He is giving us an opportunity to put our faith to work; our time on this earth is a test and how we handle these tests is how we rely on His Word. This life we have is in fact, our trial grounds where we prove to all and Him we are true Christians; if we are judged now and found approved by His Word, we will not face the second judgment to come,1 Cor.10:21, 1 Cor.11:31-32, 1 Pt.4:17For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?
18And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
19Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator. See Ro.12:1-2!
Jesus said it is better for a man to enter into His kingdom lame than to enter into Hell whole. In all our trials and being bound to this flesh, for a small amount of time we have; is nothing compared to if we are healed and still found not right before our Lord Jesus Christ at His coming or in our death to this temporary life of ours, when we were supposed to be seeking Him in Spirit and in Truth and in all righteousness, Jn.4:23But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. (Mt.6:33But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.)
24God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. The question is, how are we to know the truth? The Lord gives us the answer in the writings of the Apostle Paul to Timothy in, 2 Tm.3:16All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17That the man of God may be perfect; thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
If you have been baptized in the trinity formula you worship you know not what, just as the Samaritan women at Jacobs well, Jn.4:22Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. We are grafted into that vine, by Jesus Christ the one that came from His own Spirit put in the seed of women the LORD thus called the Christ the Lord’s ANOINTED ONE or in Old Testament they always looked for the one that was to be called the HOLY ONE. Well Jesus fits this title! Jesus’ name means “Lord is our saviour.”Titus2:10Not purloining, but shewing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things. 11For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, 12Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; 13Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; 14Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. 15These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.
When we understand that Jesus is not a second person of some imagined holy trinity (man’s heresy from 225 AD. and finally ratified somewhere around 500-558 AD. by the council of Nicaea; you can see it did not take long for man to start misinterpreting scriptures after the last apostle had died off!) and know Him for who He truly is, then we can worship Him in Spirit and in truth: Jesus said if you do not know that I Am [He], you will die in your sins, Jn.8:24 & 58 Jesus is the I Am of the New Testament as well as the Old because He was the I Am before Abram, Jn.16:28I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father! Jesus has the power to lay down His life and to take it up again because He is God and all creation and laws of reality and physical properties are bound by His word and must obey Him who established them to begin with; the one who said they could exist in the first place are still bound to His word! (Jn.10:18No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again.). The only way to truly know Jesus is by His irrefutable word of life (Jn.11:25-26 and verse 40, then look to Is.42:8 and Is.48:11-12!); 1 Pt.1:10Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you: (Jn.1:17For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
11Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow. And that Jesus is in fact the Holy Spirit which all scripture was inspired to be written by:
2 Pt.1:20Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation (Zach.12:10)!
21For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but Holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. (The same Holy Ghost that is supposed to be dwelling inside of us, or we are none of Jesus’ yet still, Ro.8:9, The same Holy Spirit that is supposed to tell you what He meant by writing these scriptures; we are told as a commandment to rightly divide (1 Cor.24-29 and all of 1 Cor.2:1-16), 2 Tm.2:15Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. How can we unless we have been baptized in His Spirit by which the word was inspired by, in the first place?)
Then this allows us to understand the importance of knowing why we must adhere to every word of His Holy Bible in order for our salvation to be true, because it is His will for us, that none should be lost! Because God changes not, Mal.3: 6For I am the LORD, I change not; and this again is true when the writer of Hebrews shows us in Heb.13:8Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever. And by Jesus Himself, Mt.24: 35Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. This is His Holy Bible is it not? Why did we receive His word? That we could be redeemed from the sin of Adam and Eve, when they sinned in the Garden of Eden for disobedience of His word! You see the mysteries of God in Jesus reconciling the word unto Himself, 2 Cor.5:17Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
18And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;
19To wit (know), that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
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. For God and Jesus are one in the same, Jn.10:30, Mt.1:23, who is God with us, our Immanuel!
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.
For us to do that we must know who Jesus is in reality of scripture evidences; not some manmade doctrines of the Roman Catholic Church started in 225AD. And was finished and ratified by the Pope who put Himself above scripture, and added to scripture and takes away from which is in direct violation of it, Deu.4:2, Rev.22:18For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
19And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
Which is in agreement with Paul in Gal.1:6I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: 7Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. 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.
You see all scripture must agree with the Old Testament as well as the New, we must find common context or meaning in our translation or we do not have the right translation! This is why we know who Jesus is and How the Father can be in Him and He in the Father when we understand that the Spirit is the Father and that God is a Spirit and the only one I know who is Holy is the Holy Spirit, Rev.4:8; which is God not the third person of any man’s trinity (Just like man to put the first last in number and place! Mt.12:31-32, who only has a blaspheme clause attached to Him?); And we see according to scripture, which is the irrefutable word of God; that God was manifest in the flesh, 1 Tm.3:16And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory. This harmonizes with:
Jn.1:1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2The same was in the beginning with God. 3All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made. 4In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. 6There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
8He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. (Refer to Gen.1:3And God said, Let there be light: and there was light; And Jn.8:12Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.)
9That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
Jn.12:36While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them. And again further in John same chapter; 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, the same shall judge him in the last day. 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.) Back to Jn.1
Jn.1:10He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
11He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
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: (Born of the baptism of the Holy Spirit being born-again, Jn.3:3-8).
14And the Word (Which was God, Jn.1:1-3) was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father (in some manuscripts of the Greek translation and NIV Which was begotten God meaning incarnated something heavenly inspired or created :), full of grace and truth. You see God said He would not 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. And in Is.48:11For mine own sake, even for mine own sake, will I do it: for how should my name be polluted? And I will not give my glory unto another.
12Hearken unto me, O Jacob and Israel, my called; I am he (Jn.8:24 & 58 Jesus is the same I am in the Old and in the New Testament); I am the first, I also am the last also in the New testament talking about Jesus in Revelation: Which shows us that Jesus is truly the name of the Father by which Jesus said I come in my Father’s name, because He was the Father the Holy Spirit manifested in the flesh, 1 Tm.3:16! This is the reason Paul spoke about the Priests of the Pharisees and Sadducees called the Sanhedrin killing the Lord of Glory, 1 Cor.2:8Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. And that Peter who had the keys to heaven spoke of in 1 Pt.1:6Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:
7That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: Because they knew that Jesus was the glory of the Father manifested in the flesh, in Mt.17 Jesus manifested His glory unto them on the mount of transfiguration. This is the reason Jesus told Phillip what He did in Jn.14:6Jesus saith unto him, I Am the way, (I Am) the truth, and (I Am) the life: no man cometh unto the Father, 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! As well as Paul, for he witnessed who God was; by which we are truly saved, Ac.20:27For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God.
28Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which He hath purchased with His own blood (The very blood of the Holy Ghost is the blood of Jesus Christ! God manifested in the flesh, 1 Tm.3:16!).
29For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
30Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them. They are the Papist, those who vainly puffed up with their own doctrines so that men should fall and be drug off by their vain philosophy of the trinity and dogma; Deu.6:4 Tells us: “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD!” Which is the greatest commandment that Jesus spoke of when asked by the scribe in Mk.12:28And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him: Which is the first commandment of all?
29And Jesus answered him: The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: which harmonizes with Zech.14:9And the LORD shall be King over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and His name One!
Jesus said He came in His Father’s name and that when He goes back to the Father, which means becomes immortal, that He would have the Father which is His Spirit send the Holy Spirit that is called by His name to the apostles (Jn.14:18), so when we baptize in Jesus name according to Acts 2:38-39 we are fulfilling Matthew 24:19-20 because the scripture says to baptize in the name of the Father and Son and Holy Spirit and we have already established that all these are merely titles of the same person which is Jesus our God incarnated; not three separate persons, or substances (ousia) of the same essence (Jn.3:6). All authority was given to Jesus because God was in Him and He was alone given all the Spirit without measure (Col.2:8-10), Jn.3:33He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true.
34For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.
35The Father loveth the Son (The adobted flesh of King David’s lineage, the sure mercies givne to David in 2 Sam.7:1-16 and verse 29!), and hath given all things into his hand.
36He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him (Jn.8:24 see verses 31-32 and verse 51.).
This is the reason it does not matter what man says, or those who say we need to be baptized in the name of the Father the Son and the Holy Ghost, is because the name of Jesus is how we receive the blood of Justification at baptism which gives us the power to stop sinning by applying His name to our souls, Jn.14:14, all power and authority is attached to that one name, Ac.4:12, that is why we baptize in Jesus’ name only, just as the Apostles have shown us, for it is the very name of the Fatherand of the Son and of the Holy Spirit for the Holy Ghost will come in the name of Jesus too, Jn.14:26; therefore this is the New Testament covenant for our Salvation seen in Ac.2:38Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost (1 Cor.6:11 our justification!)!
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 (Is.28:9-12 or you end up as those seen in verse 13 here in Isaiah!).
This was in response to Jn.3:2The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with (or within) him (Mt.19:26, Lk.1:37).
3Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
4Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?
5Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
6That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
7Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
8The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
You see the apostles were in fact carrying out exactly what Jesus told them to do; unless we have His name pronounced over us at baptism we are not buried in His likeness, and have not put on Christ; Ro.6:3Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
4Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into 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.
5For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:
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:
9Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.
10For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.
This is what Jesus was talking about in Jn.3:15That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
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. To go and sin no more! *(Son; the flesh of God incarnated of the tribe of Judah by the flesh of Mary a descendant from King David’s lineage, in full accordance to prophecy, that David’s throne would live on forever and that he would always have a son of man to stay on his throne, a ruler over God’s kingdom, we who get grafted into by the name of Jesus Christ at our baptism which is our ordination as of the priest of old before they were to serve in the performance of the Lord’s work to be given to God for service in consecration for His use, 2 Tm.2:19-22!)
17For God sent not his Son (His flesh, 1 Tm.3;16) into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him (The God-man Jesus Christ, who is both LORD and the CHRIST, Ac.2:36, who is LORD of ALL, Ac.10:36; because God theHoly Spirit had no blood to give, Ac.20:28, so he created or incarnated Himslef a body form the seed of King David’s lineage, Ps.110:1! So we…) 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 and Blood) of God.
19And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world (Refer back to Gen.1:3, Heb.1:1-ffs.), and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
Because man seeks God after vain theology and philosophies of men instead of the simplicity that is in Christ Jesus for all the Godhead was in Him; Col.2:8Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
9For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
10And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
11In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:
12Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.
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.
Why should we get baptized in Jesus name? Because Jesus said If you love Me you will keep my commandments, Jn.14:15; this is what The Apostle Peter was doing in Ac.2:38-39 the apostle’s first sermon after he was giving the keys to salvation; the only one who had the keys to heaven! Mt.16:18And I say also unto thee: That thou art Peter (petros Strong’s # 4074), and upon this rock (Meaning Jesus Christ, the chief corner stone the builders rejected, on this stone…which was a different Greek word used here instead of Peter, meaning small pepple or similar small detached stone, not Rock petra used here for cliff or stone rising up out of native ground, Strong’s # 4073.) I (Jesus) will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. 19And I will give unto thee the keys (plural) of the kingdom of heaven (menaing it will take all the keys to enter therein! Jn.3:3-8, Mt.4:17, Ac.2:38-40, Jn.15:20, Jn.14:15, Jn.8:51, Lk.11:28; Lk.6:46 and Mt.7:13-29; Mt.4:4, Jesus is the Bread of life that came down from heaven, and it still takes the word of God living in us to be cleansed by his words to us, Jn.6:63 and Jn.8:47, that St. John also showed to us in 1 Jn. (2:20 & 27), 4:1-6!): and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
So who we listen to is in fact how we are going to be saved, by the teachings of His anointed Holy Spirit filled Apostles who were getting spoken to by Him who is the Holy Spirit manifested in the flesh now immortal flesh (Jn.(1:17 grace and Truth came by Jesus Christ!), 14:18 & 26), or are we going to die in our sins not knowing the true God in Jesus saving His own people who are called by His name! We receive that name at baptism (Gal.3:27), for all power is in that name, the name of Jesus: Jesus said ask anything in my name and I will do it (Jn.14:14)! But it is conditional, If you love Me keep My commandments (Jn.14:15): 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!
Our works are abiding in His word, we are saved by grace of God in faith by putting His words into our actions and serving Him according to His Will and His WORD should be our will too or we are none of His and are not perfect because we put our will before His (Mt.12:30-32; Mk.8:34-38)! Should we not do as the apostles have told us to do (Jn.15:20)? The very ones who hold the keys to heaven; where we are trying to arrive, one soon coming day!
This is how we become perfect as our Father which is in heaven is perfect, through His love that has been regenerated in us, (Titus chapter three): Mt.5:48Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. We have to seek Him in all righteousness, Mt.6:33. The only way to do that is by asking, by knocking, by seeking, and He will open to you all scripture after you know who He is and worship Him in Spirit and in Truth, Mt.7:7-8, Jn.4:23-24, this same Spirit is for those who will receive Him, for they are truly the ones who obey His every word (Jn.8:47), by keeping in obedience of His Word and not that of man (1 Cor.1:24)!
When the men that Peter was preaching to, who were asking what meaneth this; for they all did hear the 120 in the upper room speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gave the utterance! Peter explained that this was in fact that which Joel prophesied about, that in these latter days The Lord’s Spirit would be poured out on all flesh; this is the sign of Holy Spirit baptism of Jn.3 that was talked about when Jesus said we must be born again of Water in His name and by receiving the baptism of His Holy Spirit in us (Jn.14:18), 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. (So this shows us we must have the Spirit; what was the evidences of the Spirit? Speaking in Tongues and Prophesying, Ac.(10:44-48 and told again to thew council at Jerusalem in Ac.11:15-18), Ac.19:1-6!)
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 (The son of King David according to the natural flesh!) 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 (Gal.5:17); but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit (Gal.5:16 & 18).
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 (therefore read down to verse 13, Mt.10:32-42 & Mk.8:34-38, Mt.12:30-32 & 43-50!).
How do we receive His Spirit? We must diligently seek after Him alone, with a pure heart, Mt.5:8 a heart of an innocent child, seeking God’s love Mt.18:1-5, by heeding to His every scripture and by putting Him first in our lives! He is a jealous God, and if we do not worship Him first and foremost, out of Love for Him, then we have missed the mark! How are we to show Him our love which removes all sin: by being faithful to His Eternal Life Giving Words (through Repentance, Mt.4:17; Ac.2:38-40; Ac.26:19-20!), given to us by His Anointed Apostles, for they alone had the keys to heaven! When we keep His words in faith believing we receive His salvation, by His Words (Jn.6:63 and see Jn.6:68), this is the operations of the Lord; Col.2:12Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead. We receive salvation by the operations or by keeping His Word! These are the signs of those who have been baptized in Water and in His Spirit, Mk.16:16He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
17And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
18They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover! Which harmonizes with Ac.2:38-40 and Ac.8: 12But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.
13Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done.
14Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John:
15Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost:
16(For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.)
17Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost. Which agrees with; Ac.10:29Therefore came I unto you without gainsaying, as soon as I was sent for: I ask therefore for what intent ye have sent for me?
30And 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,
31And said, Cornelius, thy prayer is heard, and thine alms are had in remembrance in the sight of God.
32Send therefore to Joppa, and call hither Simon, whose surname is Peter; he is lodged in the house of one Simon a tanner by the sea side: who, when he cometh, shall speak unto thee.
33Immediately therefore I sent to thee; and thou hast well done that thou art come. Now therefore are we all here present before God, to hear all things that are commanded thee of God.
34Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:
35But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him! (Repentance in action equals Faith, Jms.2:1-26, Ac.26:19-20; 2 Tm.3:16-17!)
36The word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (He is Lord of all:)
37That word, I say, ye know, which was published throughout all Judaea, and began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached;
38How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with Him.
39And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree:
40Him God raised up the third day and shewed Him openly:
41Not to all the people, but unto witnesses chosen before God, even to us, who did eat and drink with Him after He rose from the dead.
42And He commanded us to preach unto the people and to testify that it is He which was ordained of God to be the Judge of quick and dead. (Is.45:23; Ro.14:10-12; Phil.2:10-12!)
43To him give all the prophets witness (1 Pt.1:9-11; 2 Pt.1:19-21), that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins (Ac.11:15-18).
44While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word.
45And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost.
46For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then answered Peter,
47Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we (1 Cor.6:11)?
By these scriptures we discover the sign of the Spiritual Baptism of the Holy Spirit because it was given as evidence that they were indeed baptized as the apostles when they first received it and was given for conformation as indeed the only evidences that one was baptized in His Spirit, Ac.11:1-18, were Peter rehearsed all that was done for Cornelius by believing in Jesus Christ as our true Lord and saviour by which this salvation comes, being baptized in His name for this reason Paul baptized the 12 in Ephesus the same way, 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.These are some of the gifts or fruits of the Spirit but the evidence of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit is always speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives the utterances!
7And all the men were about twelve.
For this reason God honors our faith when we keep His Words at baptism and we receive Him in faith using His Words because we know in God there is no variances, Jm.1:16Do not err, my beloved brethren. 17Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
And we know Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever, because Jesus is God in the flesh and that with God He changes not, Mal.3:6, for this reason if we keep not His words we have committed the greatest sin for we put our words before the Holy Spirit, by which all scripture is inspired from 2 Pt.1:19-21, 2 Tm.3:16-17, Mt.12:31Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.
32And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.
This is the reason people are going to Hell because they put their beliefs and worship God according to their own desires and vain imaginations instead of by His Holy Scriptures! 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.
Was that not a requirement, being perfect? Mt.5:48; for He is Holy so we must be Holy as He is Holy, Rev.4:8! See 1Pt.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 (Lev.11:44-45 etc).
Because we have taught who Jesus really is, God Almighty in the flesh our Immanuel Mt.1:23, Is.7:14, Is.9:6For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. And in Mt.1:23Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. Jesus is that God with us Is.40:3 seen in Matthew chapter three; 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. Even His name is the revelation of who He is which means Lord or God is our saviour: Jude verse 24Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
25To the only wise God our Saviour (Is.49:29), be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen (Ro.9:5 and Ro.16:27).
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. Redemption and Salvation is all in Jesus Christ, (Jn.5:39-44, Jn.6:62-63; Jn.11:25-26 & 40)!
The only way to receive this righteousness is when we receive Jesus as our God and Saviour! By receiving Jesus we become the righteousness of God in Jesus, 2 Cor.5:19To wit (know), that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation!
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.
This is the reason why Jesus said unless our righteousness exceeds that of the Pharisees we will not enter into His kingdom, Mt.5:17Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 18For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. 19Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven! (2 Pt.3:18)
We must be born again of water and Spirit, for we are powerless in our frailty and in our flesh to live an overcoming life, that which is going to be needed in order to enter into His rest, these are those who are being spoken of, as overcomers in Rev. chapters 2 and 3! Those who are not lukewarm, but have the Holy Ghost with Fire (Ps.104:4 and Heb.1:7), Mt.3:11I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance. But he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire: (Jn.3:3-7) 12Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.
Jesus is our creator who created heaven and earth; by Him were all things made and by all things exist and are help in place by the power of His Word, which was made flesh, Jn.1:14! Phil.2:10That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth (Is.45:23; 48:11-12!); For this reason He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him, Heb.11:6But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
If we go through all the hoops and follow His every word it will not do us any good unless we have a servants heart and receive His Spirit and He gives us a new regenerated heart; a Godly heart, full of love for all mankind, for love covereth a multitude of sins: 1 Pt.1:22Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently: 23Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever. 24For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: 25But the word of the Lord endureth forever (Mt.5:17-20 and Mt.24:35)!
This is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you. See also; 1 Pt.4:7But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer. 8And above all things have fervent charity (love) among yourselves: for charity (agape kind of love) shall cover the multitude of sins (Mt.5:38-48, See all of chapter 12 of Ro.12:1-21; Lev.19:18; Deu.32:35).
Also Jm.5:19Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him; 20Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins. This one too; Pr.10:12Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins.
This is that Godly love all His disciples were to be known by the Royal Law: Jm.2:8If ye fulfill the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well (Gal.5:13-14): and Jn.13:34-35; this is what we are to do with what He has given us; we are to preach this gospel to all nations, that is what I’m trying to do right now! If we preach any other gospel other than Christ and Him crucified and you being baptized any other way than what the Apostles’ gave for us to preach then I will be under a curse too, Gal.1:8-9 and Rev. 22:18-19 given twice in scripture so would I not be doubly cursed if I preached a false doctrine, even three times cursed, Deu.4:2; Deu.5:31-33; Josh.1:7; 23:6-8; Prov.4:27? For this reason Paul told us to seek out our own salvation with fear and trembling, Phil.2:12. Jesus said no man draweth near to Him unless the Father sends him; Jn.6:43Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves. 44No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day. 45It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto Me! 46Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father. 47Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life. He alone is the teacher of all things so if you still have a problem with knowing God in Jesus and Jesus in God, Jn.14:7-9 then you need to seek Him and He alone will reveal Himself to you. Mt.11:27-30; Jn.8:31-32 and Jesus will set you free and who he has set free is free indeed, verse 36!
This is what is meant by John saying that we need not that any man teach us if we are lead by His Spirit, 1 Jn.2:23Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also(for they are one in the same, Jn.10:30, two titles, one person, Gal.3:20!): 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 (Is.9:6; Is.43:10-11 Jesus is the manifestation of the First and the Last, He who was, and was dead, and who is to come, and is alive forevermore, God Almighty all by Himself, for there is not god besides Him, 1 Jn.5:20!). 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.
This is how we receive the righteousness that the world cannot receive, because the world knew Him not or His Spirit; Jn.14:17Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. 18I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. How do we receive Him?
Jn.14:14If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. 15If ye love me, keep my commandments Is.28:9-12 and all others will fall in disobedience to His words to us, as seen in verse 13, for they have not the interpreter living in them, who wrote the Holy Bible by holy men, used for His ready pen!).
This is all that I have told you to do; keep His word in faith believing with love in your heart to become His and to serve Him only or perish Ro.12:1-2 ffs, Mt.10:32Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. 33But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. 34Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. 35For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 36And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household. 37He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 38And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me! 39He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it! (Jn.12:26If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.) 40He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me (Jn.12:45 God incarnate!).
Jesus told the apostles; “You shall receive power after He comes upon you;” so will those who follow after His word and believe in Him, and believe that Jesus will come to you, Jn.14:18; the apostle Peter said this gift is unto them that are afar off meaning generations, as in your children’s, children until this age of grace is over, Jn.14:18I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. This is the indwelling Spirit of Jesus Christ in you (Ro.8:9)!
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. (Eternal life for a true prophet is he who has a testimony of being with Jesus Christ and has been in His presence (Rev.19:10)! And is taught by Him! (Is.54:13And all thy children shall be taught of the LORD; and great shall be the peace of thy children. 14In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near thee. Jer.31:31-34.)
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.
You see salvation is free in faith believing but it is by the works of the Holy Spirit we receive eternal life, the flesh profiteth noting it is the Spirit that quickens, and we will be as He is when He returns for His church, who is His bride, who has made herself worthy, and spotless, by works in faith believing in His every word and by us keeping them, with all our hearts or else we are still none of His still (Eph.5:27, till Christ be formed in us, Gal.4:19): With man this is impossible but with God in you all things then become possible, for greater is He that is in you than He that is in the world, 1 Jn.4:4; Mt.19:26 and Lk.1:37! Only if you have evidences of His Spirit in you! Is.28:11-12; Joel 2:28-29 ffs; Mk.16:17; Ac.2:1-4; Ac.8:16-19; Ac.10:44-48; Ac.11:15-18; Ac.19:1-6!
Jm.2:1My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory (is.42:8 and 48:11-12, see 2 Cor.4:6 and 1 Cor.2:8, as well as Jn.11:40 and Lk.17:18, Jn.5:39-44!), with respect of persons. 2For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment; 3And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool: 4Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts? 5Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him? 6But ye have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats? 7Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called (Are you called by Jesus’ name? have you beeb baptized in his name by which all salvation comes? Ac.4:12!)?
8If ye fulfill the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well: 9But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors. 10For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. 11For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law (Ro.8:1-13, for the law is for those who are contentious, and they will not be one of those who will enter into His Kingdom, (1 Cor.6:9-10; 1 Cor.11:4-16; Ro.2:6-14, Gal.5:19-21; Gal.6:7!).
12So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty (2 Pt.2:1-22). 13For he shall have judgment without mercy, that hath shewed no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment. 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 (Mt.5:42)? 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 with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? 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.
When we keep His scriptures we are obeying His every word, those who do not keep His words are those who fall back into perdition, that Isaiah was speaking about in these verses; 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 (Today’s emerging church who says this is not for us anymore. Therefore they cannot rightly divide the word of God, 2 Tm.2:15! So they get bored with trying to understand the mysteries we all have been taught of by God, because we have the mind of Christ, 1 Cor.2:16!). 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.
Verse 11 gives the all importance clue on how to receive His words and to understand them and translate them correctly by receiving the one who wrote them, Jesus Christ the Holy Spirit manifested in the flesh, 1 Pt.1:9-11; 2 Pt.1:19-21 the Day Star and the Morning Star (Rev.2:28 and Rev.22:16.) for they are one in the same, Ro.8:9 shows us the Spirit is interchangeable with God and Jesus Christ for without His Spirit we are none of His singular tense not plural. Because God is our saviour by which we are washed in His blood, Ac.20:28Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.
When we accept these truths then and only then can we start to receive Him and His revelations that He alone gave us in His Scriptures!
Saul the first king of Israel lost his throne because he would not hear from the man of God, which was Samuel and disobeyed God’s word to him, for his instructions! The same disobedience that kept Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden! Disobediences of not answering His call, is that unforgivable sin, when we do not answer and obey His every word results in one thing, eternal death in the Lake of Fire where the worm dieth not and the fire is never quenched (Rev.3:19-22)!
We must answer the call with all our hearts out of love for Him alone; so that we can become like He is, children of the true living God in Jesus, being reconciled unto Him alone!
Peter answered unto the men when they said what must we do to be saved: 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.
This untoward generation Peter was talking about are those who heed not His words (1 Jn.5:19 see Jms.4:1-4!), and follow after tradition of men instead of the simplicity of Christ Jesus and the true revelation of salvation by those who had the keys to salvation given to them by Jesus Christ, who is our redemption, by His blood we were purchased, if we have truly been born-again of his Holy Spirit, 1 Cor.3:16-17; 1 Cor.6:19-20, and 2 Cor.6:14-18!)! Should we not heed His word given to us by His apostles; who had the His keys to His heavenly kingdom? God’s irrefutable words are irrefutable no matter what man says or traditions of men or their rituals, we cannot add to it or take away from the Holy Bible, this is what was meant in these verses in Mt.7:12Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets. 13Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in there at: 14Because strait (Righteousness and Holiness) is the gate, and narrow (Difficult, meaning there is but one way, Eph.4:4-6; Jn.14:6; Jn.4:24; Jn.8:24; Jn.14:1 Jn.17:3 and Jn.12:43-50.), is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. And Lk.6:46And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say? Mt.7:21Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
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. Mt.5:18For 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. Did not jesus keep all that was written? Beings He is the Word of God in the flesh and did no sin, then we too must do as Jesus did if we are to follow after Him, Jn.14:6!
23And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity
So you see we are compelled to obey His every word or perish, if we know not Him in Spirit and in truth we worship Him in vain (1 Jn.5:21, which is idolatry, worshipping a god we made up in our vain immaginations, which is not of the truth, Jn.4:23-24, as required!), and our worship is not of the Spirit of truth; unless His Spirit lives in us and we are His children according to the water and Spirit, Jn.3:3-7; 1 Cor.6:11! How can we say we are His and not receive His name at baptism? We remain in our sins still because without the blood of the covenant being applied to you at baptism there is no remission (or forgiveness) of sin: Remission is for us to go and sin no more as scripture told us to do; when Jesus told the adulteress and the cripple to go and sin no more unless a worse thing come upon you too; that is worse, Jn.5:14; 8:11, this meant all those who come to Jesus as well, because they were made whole by His forgiveness to go and live a sinless life, because we have the power and authority to put down strongholds of sin and the devil and his ways 1 Jn.5:18; this is the same warning Jesus gave to Cain, when He warned Cain that sin lieth at the door and he was to have dominion over it, Gen.4:7If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? And if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him! See we have but one choice we must answer to God with Amen, and carry out all His scriptures in our heart in obedience!
Eph.4:5One 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 according to the measure of the gift of Christ. This was well spoken to those who had been confirmed with evidences of the Holy Spirit baptism as well as all the church epistles the apostles wrote to them alone, (1 Cor.1:8); the apostles knew who they were preaching to; those who had already been filled with the Holy Spirit with confirmation of speaking in tongues and gifts following after them, as seen in Mark chpater 16 as well! If you have not been baptized in the apostle’s doctrines then all we did was get wet in a man made tradition and ritual of ceremony; if we were baptized in any other way than Ac.2:38; 10:48; 19:1-6! For the blood that covers sin is given in baptism in His name, all power is attached to His name Mt.28:18 and Jn.14;14, for there is no remission of sin without the blood of the covenant being applied to and for the sinner, Heb.9:1-28: Jn.316For 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 of God. Mt.28:19Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: (What is that name? 2 Tm.2:19-22, who knows the name of Christ and has a pure heart!)
20Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen. Jesus said I and my Father are one, Jn.10:30; Jesus said I come in My Father’s name, Jn.12:43I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.
44How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only? This is why Jesus’ name is so important, it is the name that is above all names, Ps.138:2I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy loving kindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word, above all, thy NAME! His name is magnified above all; otherwise the word would be all above thy name, AS IT IS PREACHED TODAY BY THOSE WHO KNOW HIM NOT! We must submit to His name and then carryout His word, because the word became flesh and the word was God but all things are held and are under His authority by His name BY WHICH OUR WORDS HAVE ITS AUTHORITY, due to the name expounded over them! For there is no other name by which we must be saved, Ac.4:12Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Which was rejected by the Roman Catholic Church, when they recited Mt.28:19 instead of obeying the scripture and using His name which is Jesus Christ by which we are saved, for that scripture says baptize in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Ghost: What is the subject of the sentence we must baptize in the Name in order for the operation of the object of the sentence can be establishes in obedience! This is the operation of that sentence being carried out when we baptize in Jesus’ name, in that scriptures fulfillment; it is one thing to recite a scripture over someone and quite another to carry out what that scripture said to do, in its entirety! Jesus said, Jn.12:45And he that seeth me, seeth him that sent me! To see Jesus is to look into God’s eyes! Jesus is the name of the Father which is the Holy Spirit, Jn.4:24; Rev.4:8, lev.11:44-45; 1 Pt.1:15-16: Jn.14:26But 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! because they were taught by God! Because this Spirit is Jesus’ same Spirit which is counselor or Paraklet0s, Is.9:6For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace! The First and the Last, Is.48:12, who is the Alpha and the Omega, Rev.1:8 and Rev.22:12-16! How else are we to know how to receive His salvation unless we receive His name and His Spirit, otherwise we are none of His, yet still!!! Ro.8:9!
There is but one salvation from one person from one God and His name is Jesus Christ because He alone is Lord of all, Ac.10:36 and God has made Him both Lord and Christ, Ac.2:36 What about all power and authority is His don’t we get, Mt.28:18; Rev.4:8? Dan.7:14And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed. Jesus is that one that was dead Rev.1:18I 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 the same that said five hundred years before it happened said to Zechariah.12:10And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn. That was none other than Jesus, Zech.13:6And one shall say unto him, What are these wounds in thine hands? Then he shall answer, Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends. Even further back Ps.22:16For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet.
17I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me.
18They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture. Jn.19:36For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken.
Jn.19:37by Jesus himself! “And again another scripture saith, They shall look on Him whom they pierced.” Jesus is by what all scripture was given, 1 Pt.1:9-11! Jesus is that Holy Spirit that was manifested in Mary the handmaiden of the Lord, the Holy thing (hagios, ia, ov- which is written on, is only mentioned in the Greek as hagion or HOLY ONE which means Holy, which even the Saints of God are called, who are One with God because they know who their Father is, Mt.11:27, for He alone has revealed Himself to us!) that was in her, Mt.20But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost, Jn.4:24, God is a Spirit! The Holy Spirit, Rev.4:8!
The very reason we need His name at baptism and His Spirit to have full salvation according to His Word, because baptism in water and baptism in the Holy Ghost are in fact two separate events, they may happen before one another but both need to be completed before resurrection can take place, Ro.8:9 and Jn.3:3-18; is contingent on calling out Jesus’ name, just as Jesus’ apostles did, Jn.14:14! Rv.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. How shall we live if we reject so great a salvation, we won’t we will be consumed in the Lake of Fire where the worm dieth not and the Fire is never quenched; in Hell forever tormented because you lacked faith in His word and did not properly fulfill His Commandments, 2 Tm.3:16-17, with a regenerated pure heart of an innocent child, who will be the greatest in the Kingdom of God, Mt.18:1-11 ffs!
All one has to do is look to Mathew chapter 23 and we see what really perturbs Jesus the most! When His ministers preach man’s doctrines above His word, and walk another way from which they preached, Mk.7:6-9! There is no way to call these actions but by what this action is called according to Jesus. He called them hypocrites! Is this not the greatest sin? Not walking before the Lord in Spirit and in truth; for this is the first sin of Adam and Eve, for this reason God came to us Himself for only He can change a commandment that was given by Him. He had to answer for sin once and forever by His sinless blood that was to redeem all men, and all peoples of all nations, that is how powerful His blood is! But it is only for those who will receive His scriptures and do them, Ro.12:1-2! We are saved by grace and faith, but that grace is still contingent on following Him in word and deed, Col.3:17, James said, “be ye not a hearer of the word but a doer”, Jm.1:22; Jn.8:31-32 & 51, Mt.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. Jn.14:23Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. Jn.8:31Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
32And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. And those who know the truth and are in His grace will be those who are saved from the second death! Because we have mortified this flesh and pursued the only salvation given for us to receive and that is in Jesus in His name, Ac.4:12Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved!
We have but one choice if we want to live forever with our Father this Jesus, for when we have Him we have the Father, 1 Jn.2:23Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also, Jn.10:30; Rev.4:8; Jesus who is the First and the Last!
All of this only works, only if you know the Father is the Holy Spirit not the third person of the trinity; which they put His Spirit that is His Essence last this Spirit (who is the power of the Highest and who is the wisdom of God by His will) is what Jesus’ life is sustained by His indwelling Spirit that is the reason Jesus said the flesh profiteth nothing, it is the Spirit that quickeneth, Jn.6:62-63! All Spirits will return to God from which all spirits went out from, (Ecc.12:7, Heb.12:9) if those Spirits remain true to God they will or else those spirits will go to their new leader Satan and he will be your new task master who you have been serving all along (Ro.6:16) because you have not received Jesus’ Testimony, Jn.14:1Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. This is the simplicity of Jesus that you are having trouble with (2 Cro.11:1-3)! Jn.17:3 Jesus manifested God’s name in Jesus’ flesh; “LORD is SAVIOUR!” God the redeemer, Is.49:29, The Mighty One of Jacob, the only potentate, 1 Tm.6:15-16, our King of kings and our One LORD of lords, Zach.14:9!
1 Jn.2:24Let 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, Jn.5:39-44, that cometh from God only!
25And this is the promise that he (He is singular and in most translations is capitalized showing that the he is Lord (NKJV) hath promised us, even eternal life.
26These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you. (Those who say we are not going to do these things according to scripture anymore, therefore, we don’t have signs and wonders and that there is no more tongues because we have out grown it; Heresy all! They have changed the truth and walk in error and are not of God for they preach to those who have itching ears, 2 Tm.4:3! Those that have itching ears are those going to the Roman Catholic Church, because they teach Pope is supreme above God’s Word; for Jesus said we are to be about God’s business according to scripture before man’s words, just that simple! Who are we to answer to God or man? Phil.2:10)
27But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you (True believers washed in the blood by His name and justified and sanctified by His Holy Spirit (1 Cor.6:11), which seals us, Eph.1:12-14, Eph.4:30, Ro.8:9!), and ye need not that any man teach you (If you are truly lead by His Spirit in His Truth of His irrefutable scripture 1 Cor.2:1-16, for you should have the mind of Christ and he has given us a sound mind, 2 Tm.1:7; Jn.16:33!): but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, (Jn.14:17 & 26 along with 15:26 this is that Spirit of truth that no man can come into Jesus’ presence without!), and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him. (This is true obedience out of love for Him, because you revere Him because He is your God and you are in fact His servant, which man was called to be and to tend to His creation, that was Adam’s job now ours, if you are truly born again of water and His Spirit!) 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.
Jesus said to the disciples I have shown you what your master has done to you do also in remembrance of Me, He said I Am the way, (means doing, having faith in action, working for our Lord serving Him!), the truth, (no liar will enter into His heaven, especially those who lie to themselves about who Jesus is and what He is not or what He will not allow, 2 Pt.2:1-22! We must seek Him in all righteousness, which means being right and just in our descisions before His eyes not the eyes of the world, Ro.3:4; 1 Pt.4:7-11!), and the life, (meaning we have to serve Him according to His Will for us (Mt.12:30-32; Mk.8:34-38!), all people have a calling if they have truly been baptized in water in Jesus’ name and in His Spirit, this is what the power of the Holy Ghost is for: So we too can be about our Father’s business, Lk.2:49, Just as jesus has shown us, Jn.4:34! Serving our Lord that His Grace which is His unmerited favour can continually fall on us!), No one will come to Heaven (meaning the Father, Ecc.12:7) but by Jesus Christ our Lord and SAVIOUR, unless we know who Jesus is, Jn.8:24 as the true I Am, Jn.8:58; Rev.4:8!), Jn.14:6Jesus saith unto him, I am (The I Am of the Old testament as well as the New, our God Almighty, Is.9:6!) the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me!
Jesus gave us a way to salvation and it is up to us to trust in His Word and obey scriptures not man’s doctrines or Dogma: We must adhere to those who had His keys to Heaven, you notice that it said keys meaning plural there are more than just one! That is why Jesus said we must be born again of Water and of The Holy Spirit, Jn.3:3-8 so that we can hear His Spirit teaching us His scriptures our words of life to live according to His guidance, through putting our faith in action and abiding in His Word, Ac.26:19-20! We must be Baptized in His name according to Ac.4:12; and Ac.2:38-40 there is but one road to salvation, Mt.7:12-14 and few be there that find it, many are called but few chosen!
Mt.22:1And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said, 2The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son, 3And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding (The Jews and the Bride of Christ Jesus, the Gentiles or whosoever will!): and they would not come. 4Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage (The Rapture). 5But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise: 6And the remnant took his servants (Prophets, Apostles, and Ministers of Jesus Christ’ Words), and entreated them spitefully, and slew them. 7But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city. 8Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy. 9Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage (The Gentiles who will be grafted in and those who will not put on the robes of righteousness!).
10So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests (Today’s end time churches).
11And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment: (Those who have not heard this report and taken it to heart; maybe the words of our Lord don’t affect your heart, only those who the Father calls, will hear His words and respond, Jn.8:47: The rest end up going to Hell with those who are being lead by the devil, Satan is a liar! This gospel is for everyone; Hell is intended for Satan and one third of the angels that have left their first domain or estate, they left in their own disobedience because they were a respecter of Satan and pride of heart of self before our LORD; this is exactly where those are going right along with all of them that Satan is deceiving right now; are you going to be the next to go to eternity, in the Lake of Fire where the Worm dieth not and the fire is never quenched?
The next verses are addressing those people who are going to Hell! Those who deny that Jesus is God to the Glory of the Father; for they have not put on the wedding garment and prepared themselves to enter into His dinner, Rv.3:19As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. 20Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. 21To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne (heaven), even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne (Sits in all authority in His Kingdom, Ecc.12:7Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.). 22He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.) 12And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless. 13Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness, there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 14For many are called, but few are chosen.
Lk.8:21And he answered and said unto them, My mother and my brethren are these which hear the word of God, and do it, Lk.11:28. Mt.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.
John the Baptist said in Jn.3:31He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all! 32And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth; and no man receiveth his testimony. 33He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true. 34For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God (because Jesus is God): for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him. 35The Father loveth the Son (His flesh), and hath given all things into his hand Mt.28:18 Jeuss the Mighty God, Is.9:6. 36He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
If we are not answering God’s call then we have put ourselves and our flesh before God and we will never be one of His elect, who has given all to be just a servant of the Most High God our Lord Jesus Christ, 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 (who will not receive His word and do it; when it is preached unto you!), 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 (Jn.8:24 & 58), 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. (I am indeed being sent to you this day!)
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. (Eternal Life) 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.
Here is a verse that I know has never been preached this way that I know of; but yet when you think about hidden meanings of scripture from literal sense to a figurative one, it is still true only if taken figuratively: if you take that scripture and use it in a contextual way that is still from the first literal translation: Mt.10:21And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death: We who preach these living words have given you eternal life, however, those being put to death are those who hear not His words of life and refuse to repent, and be baptized in His Glorious Name, the only name that saves one from eternal damnation; those who refuse to believe that they can have this gift of Eternal Life and the Holy Spirit baptism with speaking in a heavenly language as the Spirit gives the utterance! If they do accept your testimony then they still have one worry!
Then we must not be one of those who fall back into legalism, but have a work of faith in which our righteousness resembles who we are in Jesus Christ; for answering to His call for He said be ye Holy for I Am Holy! (1 Pt.1:13-16) We are to follow His commandments or we are none of His still! (Jn.14:15 ; 15:14), if we keep His saying, statutes, percepts, judgments, and line upon line hear a little there a little, 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. Those who heed not His Word are those who fall back into perdition because they have not His Spirit in order to understand (means to know and do, 2 Tm.2:15Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth!), and hear His Word and follow through and do it! Those who do not are 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! Obedience to the words of God, is life eternal, those who do not recieve it ar ethey who will find their own lives in Hell, in the second death!
The people who do not understand His word and cannot live according to His scriptures because they have not His name and they have not His Spirit to teach them His ways, His truths, and His life; they do not understand and cannot follow it because they have not the love of God in them: Which only comes from being one with the Father because Jesus is the Father, Jn.10:30 I and my father are one! And you will not come to Him so you can be saved; 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.
God was manifested in the flesh to come and redeem those who know Him and love Him: He is theirs, just for the ones who He is the creator; we His created made in His likeness that we might come to know Him as He knows us in Spirit and in truth!
He came to finish the work of the eternal creation, to put things in place that none should be lost so that all will come to Him in His glory and in His true likeness as Adam was before he fell in to perdition for being disobedient to God’s words like today’s generation (Judges 2:10-13) and now my elders who hear not these words and believe a lie of man’s tradition over God’s saving words; this scripture (Mt.7:15-23; 10:21-22) today is being fulfilled, unless we heed His word and use them in our lives! Jesus’ words are life or death; we either use them and live forever in His Kingdom or we blow them off and perish to the Lake of Fire that was intended for Satan and his followers who follow after their own ways; those who need not this gospel because Satan has lied to them and you if you have not Jesus according to His Word! Are you the next to carry on in your filth of being deceived by Satan?
The only way to get to Him our Lord Jesus is to be born-again in His likeness by water in His name, with a pure heart; by His indwelling Spirit with speaking in tongues as evidences of the initial out pouring just as our Apostles received so shall we all who are truly His that is the confirmation, for it is His heavenly language we must know and speak; that intercedes for us when we know not what to pray or how to go about asking Him for His will in our lives, to show us a better way, a more perfect way always seeking to please Him because we are His faithful servants, 2 Pt.3:18! This is what you do when you are sold out on Jesus; It has to be a passion to please Him for He gave us His all and that is exactly what we must do for Him, give Him our all or we just play like we are religious and we make ourselves into liars at the same time, Ro.3:4! He knows we cannot fool Him, don’t you know you can’t either. Does He not know the beginning from the end? We either live by His word that He gave us for this reason to worship Him in Spirit and in truth or fall by the wayside as the seed spoken of in His parables Mt.13:1-23. The seed (the words of God) who did not fall into toiled or prepared soil (our souls) that is constantly being reworked as His Spirit gives us more revelation of His word, Eph4:11-16 ffs; 2 Tm.3:16-17! The day we quite growing in His likeness is the day we start down a slippery slope back into perdition, 1 Pt.4:13-19!
We must be about His business (Lk.18:7-8) or perish with all the unbelievers who have lost faith or never really had any because when we know Him and His word our faith increases and we seek to do more for Him because we are truly sold out to Him alone for He is our All in All! That is why the Lord gave us preaching to reach a lost and dying world that none should perish but all could come to Him in faith believing or forever be lost with Satan and his followers in his lake of fire where he will be your new master forever!
I know first hand what it was like for Jonah who kept trying to run away from the Lord. If we are to be the Lord’s and He wants you for a special calling He will get your attention and you will start losing things, if they are in His way, (Heb.12:7If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? 8But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.), you have put them before our Master! He is a jealous God and will have no part of it; you will come back in line and under His dominion or you will face His wrath! It almost cost me my life till I answered His call! He will chastise His own if He doesn’t, then you are one of the nameless bastards that are still finding their way to Hell and the trials of tribulations and the death of a sinner who is forever lost! Never to be remembered again in the lake of fire screaming and crying out for eternity, were the worm dieth not and there will be gnashing of teeth! You will be crying out to Him but He will not forgive you and Satan will never relinquish his hold on you because you have given yourself to him by not heeding this preacher’s word; the words of Jesus Christ calling out for you to repent, for the time is at hand, salvation has come to you this day 2 Cor.6:2! It is time to get out of the miry clay that has you bound to this earth with all its carnalities, materialist views, and religion of the Papist fools going to Hell because they did not listen to John when he wrote the Book of Revelation: John said by the Holy Spirit: Rv.22:18For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 19And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
Which was confirmed also in Paul’s writing in the Holy Spirit as well in Gal.1:8But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 9As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
Jesus preached one of His first public sermons; what was the first thing Jesus required? It was in Mt.4:17From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand*. What was that, that Peter preached also at his first sermon after receiving Jesus’ Holy Spirit? We see in Acts chapter 2 the men asked what they must do to receive this salvation of Jesus Christ. The man that had the keys given to him by the very same one that redeemed us with His very own blood, our LORD JESUS! Peter preached repentance! What did Jesus do when He started His ministry? He went and had John the Baptist baptized Him so all righteousness could be fulfilled, not that He had sin, He had no sin so that all the sin of the universe and eternity could be laid on Him who created it for Himself! Only God could have enough Holiness and Righteousness to change sin from death to eternal life by covering sin with His own blood, by which we were bought from the slavery of death to eternal life! What was the next key Peter used to get us into Heaven; which is called His Kingdom? After Peter said to repent he ordered, no he commanded, that everyone is to be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, for the remission of sins: Remission or forgiveness but more for remission; when something goes into remission it stops what it was doing this is in fact full repentance which brings forth forgiveness! We see Jesus said to go and sin no more to one and to another He said go and sin no more unless a worse thing come upon you, Jn.5:14; 8:11! Peter still had another key to use before anyone could be truly saved: Peter said; “and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.” Which is Jesus’ very own Spirit in us in fulfillment of Jn.14:18I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. Also in fulfillment of Joel2:28And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions Rev.19:10: 29And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.
Therefore, we see that Jesus’ words by His prophets, disciples, and apostles still are and always will be kept in this time and the next, Amos3:7-8! Who can shut after my Lord opens and who can open after my Lord shuts? No one but he who had the keys to bind in heaven and in earth or loosen in heaven or to loosen on earth and that was Peter and the apostles, no one else, this chapter in history of binding or loosening left with John and he sealed God’s Holy Book, the one we call this Holy Bible of ours by which our salvation will come; if we use it correctly in faith believing in Jesus’ words of Life, Jn.6:62-63! It all boils down to this, are we going to forsake all to come to Him so He can receive us unto Himself or are we going to keep deceiving ourselves into Hell? We won’t have this preacher to blame in Hell or the next person; Paul told us to work out our own salvation, Phil.2:12! If we receive Jesus in faith believing in His every word instead of man’s doctrines; He will finish a good work in you if He alone is the author and finisher of your faith: Phil.1:5For your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now;
6Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ: (Speaking of the baptism of the Holy Spirit and the catching away!). Without the Holy Spirit in us we are lost still for our salvation is not complete, 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. Even if you have the Spirit and you have not received His name you are still lost; unless you have the baptism which was done in His name (Gal.3:27); in the Name of Jesus Christ, the only name by which salvation comes, Ac.4:12 according to His words, all of them or none of Jesus you will be!
In order to walk in the Spirit we must have it first and foremost, and His words imprinted upon our hearts and in our minds before us always, Jer.31:31-34! Do you speak in tongues as the Spirit gives you the utterances!? If you answered no then you’re not going to heaven because you believe not His words of life! It is not me pronouncing eternal damnation on you but His very words of life or death to those who choose not to receive His salvation according to His words!
Lk.6:47Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them; and Jn.8:31Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; 32And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. Free from sin and forever being tormented every second forever, just because you did not hear this preachers words spoken by His Holy anointing, for they are not my words but His given to me; from me to you by Him! When you get to heaven you will stand before Him and these very same books that are in the Holy Bible will be opened up and you will be judged by them Jn.12:35-50! The only ones found in His Book of Life who are going to be these: 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. And these; Mal.3:16Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought (meditated) 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. So let me ask a final question are you one of these?
If not, repent and be baptized in the Glorious name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit for it is unto you and to all those who are a far off, even to as many as the Lord our God shall call! Many are called but few will be chosen are you going to be one of the few? Seek ye the Lord, today is the day of salvation, by His word we will overcome this flesh and this world of carnality by the empowering of His very Spirit we can fulfill our calling and His destiny for all His children by His very will we stand in faith believing 1 Jn.4:4. His every word or perish in the eternal lake of fire, were the worm dieth not and you are the fuel for the fire that is never quenched, Eze.21:31-32 and seen again in Eze.22:30-31! I have heard Him myself and He told me that the door of salvation was about to be closed forever: Everyone who heeds not His word will be left outside saying; “My Lord my Lord why have you forsaken me?” Mt.7:21Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
The reasons are many why someone would fail to enter into His rest but there is but one way to Him and that is by His scriptures and not man’s doctrines and Dogma of others, Mk.7:6-9! All the commentaries we will ever need are in His Holy Spirit, by the leading of His apostles and disciples, Matthew, Mark, Luke, Paul, Peter, John even James, Jude and Paul’s writings to Timothy and Titus and the Epistles to all the churches of God, for they are our instructions so we will be found Holy and Righteous in his eyes!
So are you going to be one of the workers in His harvest fields that are doing His will? However, you could be one of those who are going to be eternally roasted in His Lake of Fire; that is for those who hear not His words! One of those who are continually condemned forever, Mt.12:31Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. 32And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come. All because you put your own doctrine above His word! This is the sin that will never be forgiven of unless we leave this shameful heart and mind behind and be transformed into His likeness, being born again by His Spirit with evidences of faith being fruitful witnesses harvesting souls in His fields! Those are the ones who have a true testimony of what God has done for them and how He brought them out of a life of sin and the roaring lions mouth, seeking whom he may devour! These are those who have a true testimony because they have been in His presence and felt Him working and changing their hearts and minds into a new creature; one designed for His use! It is as easy as believing and then putting your faith in action, by stepping out and repenting, being baptized in the water of remission of sin in Jesus’ name and trusting for His gifts as He promised (Lk.11:13), for they are for anyone who believes in Him and His Word, Mt.5:18; 24:35! This is the faith He is going to be looking for when He returns: Lk.18:7And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? 8I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? He will if you do as this preacher has warned you to do:
Ro.12:1I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 2And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. 3For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith. 4For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office: 5So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another. 6Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; 7Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching; 8Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness. 9Let love be without dissimulation (Disguising or hiding true feelings). Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good. 10Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;
11Not slothful in business (not your business but His business just as Jesus was at 12 years of age, Lk.2:49); fervent in spirit (Holy Ghost and with Fire); serving the Lord (by which His grace has been given to serve Him, this is what John was talking about in Jn.1:16And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.);
12Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer; 13Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality. 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.
Ever word of this Holy Bible is our bread of life: 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. Lk.4:4And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God. Do you not know that the Lord did this to make it easier to remember the most important scriptures in the world! And the second set most important is next to it in meaning as well; 2Tm.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. Even these; 1Pt.1:9-11; 2 Pt.1:19-21; That’s right we can become perfect if we live according to His words, Mt.5:48, because Jesus gave us this commandment, Mt.5:48Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect (Inb a Regenerated Love of God in you!). This is only done by abiding in His word and meditating on His scriptures, day and night and allowing Him to minister to you through His word and His Spirit or you are none of His!
Guess what, if you walk according to this world’s standards and have not mortified the flesh you are not one of His still! Those of the flesh will reap rewards of the flesh and die the death of all those who worship carnality Gal.5:17, Ro.8:1There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. 2For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. 3For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: 4That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit! 5For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. 6For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 7Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. 8So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God! 9But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. 10And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. Which harmonizes with Mt.5:20 and 1 Pt.1:15-16 which coincides with these verses:
Holiness without which no man enters into His Kingdom
Be Ye Holy: Be holy in all manner of life, Col.3:17 In word and deed do all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ:
1 Pet 1:15-16- as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of life; because it is written, be ye holy; for I am holy.
Lev 11:44-45- I am the Lord your God: ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy.
Leviticus 19:2- Speak unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say unto them, Ye shall be holy: for I the LORD your God am holy.
Lev 20:26- ye shall be holy unto me: for I the Lord am holy, and have severed you from other people, that ye should be mine.
Leviticus 20:7- Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the LORD your God
2 Cor.6:17Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate (sanctify yourselves and be ye Holy), 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.
Deuteronomy 7:6- For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special (sanctified to be Holy, A People Consecrated ) people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth, the Elect a chosen generation.
Deuteronomy 14:2- For thou art a holy people unto the LORD thy God, and the LORD hath chosen thee to be a peculiar (a sanctified and Holy) people unto himself, above all the nations that are upon the earth.
Deuteronomy 28:9- The LORD shall establish thee a holy people unto himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God, and walk in his ways (You shall be a Holy people!).
Psalm 4:3- But know that the LORD hath set apart him that is godly (a Holy, Godly man) for himself: the LORD will hear when I call unto him: because you have kept His commandments, Jn.14:15.
Numbers 15:40- That ye may remember, and do all my commandments, and be holy unto your God.
1 Samuel 2:2- There is none holy as the LORD: for there is none beside thee: neither is there any rock like our God.
Psalm 99:5- Exalt ye the LORD our God, and worship at his footstool; for he is holy.
Psalm 99:9- Exalt the LORD our God, and worship at his holy hill; for the LORD our God is holy.
We are called unto holiness and not immorality
Titus 2:12- we should deny ungodliness and worldly lusts, and should live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present world.
2Pet 3:11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy behavior and godliness.
1Thess 4:7- God hath not called us unto immorality, but unto holiness
2Cor 7:1- let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
James 1:21- cast away all flthiness and evildoing.
So without a doubt these things are the requirements to be His for they are commandments all, and if anyone teaches not to keep His commandments they will be the least of His Kingdom! Hell is still a part of His kingdom so in a fact will all those who keep not these words of life will go to the lowest portion of His Kingdom?
Here is the bottom line God will not look you over for PhDs, M.A.s, Masters and Literary Degrees, but he will look you over for scares that you have received in worshipping and serving Him in Spirit and in Truth quote from Elbert Hubbard and Reverend Brother G. L. Boyett!
If we uphold not His word in our deeds how are we to be expected to receive Him for ourselves when we have not given ourselves to Him to begin with: if we do such things as to refuse to honor His superiority as Creator and we HIS created, we fail to make Him our own! Exo.33:19And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy. These that put Him first in word and deed and live by His very words are those who He will show mercy to; because He alone is sovereign!
If we keep not His word we fail most miserably into our own miss conceptions and our vain imagination of who this almighty God is and what we are to do for Him! If truly we are His servants headed for His Kingdom, we must be about His business doing His will in faith putting down this flesh that is not of the Spirit. If you want to do something because the flesh thinks its fun guess what, it is not of the Spirit, for the flesh wars against the Spirit until you put down the old man Satan that still lives in this world; that we are to have dominion over!
Receive ye the Lord and uphold His scriptures in your life and live forever in peace and tranquility. Behold the Lord cometh with His saints; are you going to be one of them?
*Note from Mt.4:17From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. Many commentaries has near for a translation of at hand; which is untrue according to harmonizing scriptures; for Jesus said in other verses that if things He was doing were being done by the finger of God then assuredly the Kingdom of God has indeed come unto to you! Lk.11:20But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you. And Mt.12:28But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you. 29Or else how can one enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man (The Devil)? And then he will spoil his house (Those who are in the world, carnally minded and do the things of this world (Jms.4:4) instead of seeking Him in His righteousness, (Mt.6:33), so that all things will be added to you by Him if you will receive Him and His name!) 30He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.

1Tm.3:16 & 6:11-21; Is.60:1-22; 2Tm.3:16-17; Gen.17:1; Mt.5:48; Heb.13:8; Amos3:1-8
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! ~ Quote from: Rev. Bro. G. L. Boyett
This was given to me from our Lord Jesus Christ personally;
For all who will hear what thus saieth the Lord!
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; Deu.28:14; Josh.1:7; Deu.5:32-33; Jn.14:15; 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. Mt.22:14For many are called, but few are chosen. 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.
Mt.10: 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.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, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come. 1Pt1: 20Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 21For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. 2Tm.3:16-17.
Mt5:48; 6:33: All of this is that you will never have to say: Eli, Eli, lama Sabachthani? Are you; Anathema? You are if you have not been baptized, Mt.4:17, in the only name by which salvation comes, Ac.4:12; 2:38-39; Mk.16:16! Your sins keep your prayers from Me, Pr.15:8; 28:9; Man created a false since of religion that is not according to My scripture; so how can a man stand before Me when he comes to Me; to have an answer for himself; for all those who think they are mine; just because you say I’m a Christian and yet you still live in sin, you are living in a lie, Lk.6:46 you will not stand, Phip.2:10, you will bow before being drug off screaming! Sinners will see the error in horror and say Lord if I had known, I would have done better; and I will answer and say, “Did I not send Paul, and my prophets, apostles, and disciples to you telling you to emulate him and Me; in a more excellent way, 1Pt.1:11-16, Mt.5:48; and to work out your salvation with fear and trembling? You have not, because you have lost your first love, Me and My Way, and My way is My Will, Lk.11:28But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it!
Every word My Spirit has uttered unto My prophets has been foretold to you and you receive it not; that you may have salvation and you keep regarding it as hearsay and heresy and put thine own words above mine; you have not because you always ask a miss! Even when I came to you myself you reject Me and the words I have spoken unto you all things that are eternal life, with Me, fore I change not, Mal.3:6, Mt.24:35! For I told you that I spoke that which had been given unto Me from my Father which is my Spirit, because the flesh is always to please the Spirit and if you had known Me you would have known My Father for we are One in the same, Jn.10:30; 12:45; 14:7-9; 20:28 is not My name Immanuel? Jesus is My Greek name, My name in My children’s language is Yashuah this Joshua, meaning Lord is Salvation am I not your saviour, Titus2:10-15, that has bought you with My own blood, Ac.20:28, Jn.8:24, and 58 the I am, Jude 1:25; Jn.17:3?! Ecc.12:7; 1Tm.3:16; Ro.8:1-9, unless you have Me, you are none of Mine without My Spirit in you, Jn.3:3-18, 14:18; Ro.8:9!
For this reason I told you to be baptized in My name, by my disciples did I not? Ac.4:12; 2:38-39; 10:44-48; 19:1-7? Have not I given them the keys to heaven and whatever they bind on earth will be, and is bound in heaven, and has not My prophet John sealed the Book of Life, Rv.22:18-19, that none should add to it or take away from it; so how is it you have not heeded every Holy Spirit filled word that I have given you, mt.4:4; Lk.4:4; Gal.1:8-9? 2 Tm.3:16-17!
This is the blasphemy that will never be forgiven in this age or the next that I spoke of: Mt.12:30He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad. 32And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come: Because you have not kept My Commandments and have put your words above Mine!
If you had Loved Me unconditionally as I loved you, you would have had a fervent desire, a fire that could not have been quenched because it would have been a supernatural fire, Ro.12:1-12, to know Me and My Will for you, but you would not have My Word for your Counsellor, Jn.1:14; Is.9:6, Mt.12:48-50?
But you sought unwise council because you had twitching ears, you had no desire to reach out to your brother, Mt.12:30, Jn.15:13 as I have done for you; with the same love that I showed unto you: While you were yet sinners I gave Myself for you that you should not have to bear My wrath to come, Ro.2:4, you said you would at repentance, and yet you returned to the mire from which I pulled you out, Heb12:25-29: Yet I told you to go and sin no more, unless a worse thing come upon you did I not, Jn.5:14; 8:11?! Now I will hear you say, “my God my God why have you forsaken me?!” Now are my angels and saints saying, “Maranatha” fore I am about to shut the door, and I have given you strong delusions, because you seek your path and have gotten far from Me! Gabriel has the Trumpet to His lips and Michael awaits My command to give the shout for Me to receive My Bride, who has made herself ready for Me; who shout, “Maranatha!!!“
Holiness and Oneness Verses
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 Mt.1:23 and Is.9:6 Jesus is God Almighty, the God of All in All, 1Cor.15:28 and God all by Himself; whether you want to admit it or not! There is no other God besides Him ye I know not any; Is.44:6Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his (Israel’s Bride who has made themselves spotless!) redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God. 7And who, as I, shall call, and shall declare it, and set it in order for me, since I appointed the ancient people? and the things that are coming, and shall come, let them shew unto them. 8Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it? ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any.
Is.41:4Who hath wrought and done it, calling the generations from the beginning? I the LORD, the first, and with the last; I am he: is.43:10Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. 11I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour. Is.45:5I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me: 6That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else. 7I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things. 8Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the LORD have created it.
Deu.4:35Unto thee it was shewed, that thou mightest know that the LORD he is God; there is none else beside him. Deu.32:39See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand. 40For I lift up my hand to heaven, and say, I live forever. 41If I whet my glittering sword, and mine hand take hold on judgment; I will render vengeance to mine enemies, and will reward them that hate me. 42I will make mine arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh; and that with the blood of the slain and of the captives, from the beginning of revenges upon the enemy. 43Rejoice, O ye nations, with his people: for he will avenge the blood of his servants, and will render vengeance to his adversaries, and will be merciful unto his land, and to his people.
1 Sam.2:2There is none holy as the LORD: for there is none beside thee: neither is there any rock like our God. 2 Sam.22:31As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him. 32For who is God, save the LORD? and who is a rock, save our God? Joel2:27And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed. All of this is for nought if we don’t come to grips with these verses and tie them all together; just as He is one, zech.14:9And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one!
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. And this by Jesus himself: Jn.10:30 I and the Father are One; Jn.8:24 You will die in your sins if you do not believe I Am He: Jn.20:28And Thomas answered and said unto him, My LORD and my God. Mt.1:23call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us! Jn.12:45And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me! Jn.14:7If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him. 8Philip saith unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us. 9Jesus saith unto him: “Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father?”
