(Mt.22:14For many are called, but few are chosen.)
I just wish people would start living like they truly intended to go there (Heaven) and keep unto our Lord’s words of wisdom so they actually could! Unless we are a true disciple of Jesus Christ in word and deed we are not going (Lk.6:46)! Lk.14:24For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden shall taste of my supper.25And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned, and said unto them,26If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.27And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.28For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?
Those who have been baptized into Christ Jesus have put on Christ Jesus as well, Gal.3:26-27, see Col.3:10And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:11Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.12Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;13Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.14And above all these things put on charity (Love), which is the bond of perfectness (Mt.5:48).15And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.16Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.17And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.18Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.19Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them.20Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord.21Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged.22Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh; not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God; 23And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; 24Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.25But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.
There is no forgiveness for presumptuous sin; to those who heed not the word of God! If you ignore God’s truths you will face His wrath because you were in your own will! Read Mt.12:31-32 and how this chapter ends; only those who are in the will of the Father will see heaven as spoken in verses 46-50! Jesus is the way, the truth and the Life we are to emulate (Jn.14:6), just as the Apostle Paul instructed us in 1 Cor.11:1-2; which is a commandment we are to keep, because Jesus said if we will obey His words; we will likewise do the same to those who spoke by His Ordination as being His chosen representative as seen in Jn.15:1-20! If we keep not His instructions to us; why should any of us think we are His chosen few? Mt.20:16So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen. Mt.22:14For many are called, but few are chosen. All because they chose their ways instead (Or Philosophies and Dogma over), of our Lord’s ways! That is “Presumptuous Sin,” (Read Num.15:23-36, only the sin of ignorance is forgivable, unless one repents! Rev.2:4-5!), that will not be forgiven in any age! For you are violating the government of God’s will for His Kingdom, with your own foolishness and ways which are not the ways (Is.55:6-9), of our Lord God with us, who is our Immanuel, Mt.1:23!
Mt.7:12Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.13Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in there at: 14Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Read Lk.13:23Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them,24Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, [many] will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.25When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are:26Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets.27But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.
These verses start off with the word strive in the answer to verse 23; This means we will face difficulties (Jn.16:33, see also 1 Pt.4:1-ffs), in reaching Him in perfection to His words of Truth, the word here in the Greek for strive is Agōnizesthe, Ἀγωνίζεσθε, from which we get agonize (Gal.5:17 & Jms.4:4); this is exactly what Jesus said we would face if we come after Him in 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. Only those who overcome this life & the flesh (See Ro.8:13), of trials are going to be His servants who kept to His given words of Truth (Mt.4:4 & Jn.6:63)! Even as stated in Revelation’s chapter 2 and chapter 3, we must be “OVERCOMERS”. Therefore repent and do the first works you did or He will come and remove your candlestick from its place, Rev.2:4-5!
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge, Hos.4:6! In these last days there will be a drought: Amos chapter 8:11Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD: 12And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it. This is the very day we live in my friends, no one reads their Holy Bibles through each year anymore do they? Some do but only the ones who know who Jesus is will be in His Kingdom, who keep His words them, Jn.14:15! Jn.8:24I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I Am [he], ye shall die in your sins! Why did they always want to pick up stones and stone Jesus? It was because Jesus was claiming to be just who He said He was; the I Am; Ex.3:14 as we see in verse 58; 58Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I AM! 59Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by. Which explains perfectly Jn.12:45And he that seeth Me seeth Him that sent me. Because Jesus is God in the flesh not some manmade theology or philosophy of vain dogma! Apostle Paul knew who Jesus was, 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. Let us do a little study on the word glory! God said to Isaiah that He would not give His glory to another, as we read in Is.42:8 and again in 48:11 and we see that Jesus showed everyone the glory of God in Jn.11:40; and Paul said if the church father’s had known who Jesus was they would not have crucified the Lord of [all] Glory in 1 Cor.2:8, who Peter said was both LORD and the CHRIST in Ac.2:36 who is LORD OF ALL in Ac.10:36 just before he baptized the first gentile convert in the glorious name of Jesus Christ (Ac.10:44-48); because there is no other name by which salvation comes, Ac.4:12: So that kind of narrows the straight path to the Lord’s Kingdom doesn’t it? Only those who know who Jesus is; and only those who were baptized in His name, rather than reciting some verse in the Holy Bible over someone in baptism; they actually fulfilled what that verse actually said to do; they baptized in the name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit; and that name is Jesus Christ; Jesus is the I Am everything anyone will ever need Him to be! We are complete in Jesus alone, and the baptism of His Spirit in us so we too can have His mind in us (Jn.14:18), as seen in 1 Cor.2:1-16!
Who was John the Baptist to prepare a way for? Answer is seen in; Is.40:3The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God! That is exactly what John the Baptist did in Mt.3:3; Jesus said we search the scriptures for eternal life that is salvation; and every scripture is about its author, the very one who had it written, Jn.5:39; because they are His words written by Holy men as they were carried along in the Holy Spirit as they wrote it, as seen in 2 Pt.1:19-21! They wrote about the suffering of a servant that was to suffer for our transgressions, as they were told to write it by the same one who was to suffer as we see in 1 Pt.1:7-11! Our faith will be tried in the fire of vain theologies and the doctrines of foolish men; who should have listened to the Holy Spirit made flesh who wrote it, as we see yet again in scripture Zech.12:10And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon ME, whom they have pierced! Written over 530 years before He showed up to fulfill His every word to us, Mt.5:17-20, Mt.24:35! Lk.24:44And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me. 45Then opened He (Jesus) their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures, 46And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: 47And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem!
How many of us were baptized into that glorious name by which His Salvation comes (Ac.4:12); should Salvation not also come by His own name, as the one who gives it, Jn.11:25-26? Jesus said if we ask anything in His name we shall have it, Jn.14:14 and then we would receive Him who gave us His salvation; as seen in scripture as we look to Jn.14:14If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.15If ye love me, keep my commandments.16And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; (Which is) 17Even the Spirit of Truth (Jn.1:17); whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth Him not, neither knoweth Him, (Mt:11:27): but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.18I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you! Jesus was talking about none other than Himself here! This is seen in Is.9:6!
That is the baptism of the Holy Spirit from which all spirits will return to (See Heb.12:9); is to the one who gave it, Ecc.12:7 because God is that Spirit (Gal.3:20 & 4:19, till Christ be formed in you!); Jn.4:24 and unless we worship Him in His Truths and in His Spirit we are none of His yet still as seen by scripture; Ro.8:1There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.2For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.3For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son (According to the adobted flesh used, that is from King David’s lineage!), in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:4That the righteousness of the law (Which is the Word of God, 2 Tm.3:16-17!) might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit, (Jn.6:63).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 (See Is.28:9-13).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 (And will find themselves as one of those in verse 13 of Isaiah chapter 28!)!
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. Jesus had John the Baptist baptize Him so all Righteousness could be fulfilled, and that righteousness was the tieing together the Old Testament to the New one being written in Jesus’ own life the gospels to us, which is the living words of God to us as seen in Ac.20:24 and verse 32, which is seen in Ac.20:28, to show us by whose blood we were actuall purchased by, the blood of the Holy Spirit manifested in the flesh of Jeasus Christ, 2 Cor.6:14-18!
11But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.12Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.13For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live! 14For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God!
Each and every day is our worship to Him who gives eternal life (Ro.12:1-21); and it is only given to those who will abide in Him and His words to us; not mine, not yours, but His words or you will end up doing just as King Saul did and lose your kingdom to your own self-will, following your own theologies, philosophies, and having a corrupt psychology because you never received the mind of Jesus Christ in you as seen in scripture yet again: 1 Cor.2:1-16 because you never received His baptisms of the water and of the Spirit; Jn.3:3-8! Look to 1 Sam.15:1-35; it didn’t end well for Saul! It will not end well for those who are a “shame” to our Lord as well; a shame to people here and now today do not think much of someone being a shame but let us observe how God sees what a shame brings; Dan.12:1And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book: 2And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. A shame to us in our terminologies is not the same as His is, now is it? Whose terminologies do you think we had better learn and observe? I don’t know about you but a verse Joshua comes to mind to me: Jos.24:15And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD!
I hope you do the same, as for me and my house we will serve the LORD JESUS CHRIST my GOD, Jn.20:28! Who is the First and the Last (Is.48:11-12; Rev.22:13-19), as we see in yet again scripture, Rv.1:8I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty (Is.9:6). The same God Isaiah knew; 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. Who is Jesus Christ who is Immanuel (Is.7:14) our God with us, Mt.1:23! God our saviour has appeared to all men; Tit.2:11For 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 (2 Cor.6:14-18).15These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.
We were bought with a price that no one can repay, (But by a self giving life as the one who spent His for us, doing His all for us as we now do for Him as well, in His likeness!), the precious blood of our Great God, Ac.20:28Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost (who is God, Mt.12:31-33 the only one in the whole Bible with a blaspheme clause attached to Him is God! And He was manifested in the flesh of Jesus Christ, 1 Tm.3:16!) hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which HE hath purchased with HIS own blood (Whose blood? The blood of God!). For this reason we must obey His every word or we are not one of His Sons Yet! Jn.8:47 says only those who are His sons hear His words, they are His sons who keep them and do then as seen in scripture yet again: Mt.4:4 and Lk.4:4; because Jesus is the bread of life but man does not live by bread alone, but by every word out of the mouth of God, which has always been Jesus own mouth; Jn.6:63It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. We are saved when we receive Jesus’ repentance for us as seen in Ac.11:15And as I began to speak, the Holy Ghost fell on them, as on us at the beginning (With speaking in tongues!).16Then remembered I the word of the Lord, how that He said, John indeed baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost.17Forasmuch then as God gave them the like gift as He did unto us, who believed on the Lord Jesus Christ; what was I, that I could withstand God?18When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life!
The evidences of His Spirit being one with ours, the baptism that all the Apostles and disciples received in the upper room all 120 of them spoke with other tongues as the Spirit gave them the utterance (Eph.4:4-7), just like Cornelius’ family and friends who had gathered to hear Peter’s preaching! Jms.1:16Do not err, my beloved brethren.17Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning (Ac.2:38-39-ffs). 1 Cor.14:37If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I (Paul) write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.38But if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant.39Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues (Rev.19:10, Jesus’ Spirit is the Spirit of Prophecy!).
40Let all things be done decently and in order. So what happened to our so-called Churches who say that these things are not for us today? The things the Apostles gave to us were bound by Jesus’ authority for only they had the authority to bind in heaven and on earth and to loosen in heaven and on earth and that power is none transferable; only the one who has all authority can give that permission to another, especially a man! There is but by One Spirit and One LORD that all the gifts of the Spirit are given out to become Apostles, Prophets, Evangelist, Preachers and Teachers as well as all the other gifts working properly to be a true church of God in Jesus Christ reconciling the world unto Himself by us who are His servants doing our jobs for Him: That have been called by Him personally! This is how you will know a true church of God in Christ Jesus! When they are living out His words in their everyday lives as His faithful servants will be seen doing as Paul said in Ac.26:19Whereupon, O king Agrippa, I was not disobedient unto the heavenly vision:20But shewed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance.
This once saved always saved and we are saved by grace and faith alone is leading a lot of people straight to Hell! We have a Hope of salvation, “IF” we don’t put on our wedding garment which is His Holiness and Righteousness that shines like Godliness which is without Spot or Wrinkle; we will not be found Holy & Blameless or without Blemish, now will we, Eph.5:27? What happened to the man who came in and did not put on his wedding garment? He was bound hand and foot and cast out into outer darkness where there will be gnashing of teeth; just like you! God changes not; Mal.3:6; Mt.5:17-20; Mt.24:35; Heb.13:8! We abide in Him and produce fruits or we are cut off and put in the burn pile as seen in scripture, Jn.15:1I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.2Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit (He tests you and proves you to increase your faith in Him so you can produce more fruits and win more souls to His kingdom, are you a soul winner?! If not you have not picked up your cross yet then have you! If you do not deny yourself and pick up your cross and you still follow Him; you are still not worthy of Him according to scripture, not my words; but His own words to us! Read Mt.10 & chapter 16 and even Mk.8:34-38!), Jn.15:3Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. (You are only clean unless you keep and obey His words of life to your own eternal soul, heart, mind, spirit, and body; which are your strengths, charator and nature, if you are born again of Him! The words of God when kept sanctify us and cleanse us for the master’s use, 2 tm.2:19-22, and only they who have a pure heart will see god, Mt.5:8!)
Jesus said, 4Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.5I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.6If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
7If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. 8Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.9As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.10If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.11These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.12This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.13Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. (This is true love! Spent in the service of leading the lost to Salvation, Jms.5:19-20, not batteling in another man made war, fighting vain ideologies and philosphies of men, who have made idols out of words and ideas such as Freedom, Liberty, and Patrism; which are the wisdom of man which is foolishness to our only wise God! For only a True Disciple of Jesus Christ can be free and He will be free indeed, Jn.8:31-32 & 34-36 are you a true Son of God who abideth forever?!), 14Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you!
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. With man this is impossible, but with God in you all things become possible, because greater is He that is in you (If you have baptized in His glorious name and infilled with His Holy Spirit in you!), than he that is in the world, 1 Jn.4:4!
For this reason there will be few that can get their feet off the ground come the catching away! They know not who the Lord truly is because of the vanities’ of doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church who started some manmade “trinity study” trying to figure out the relativity of the relationships between the titles of our One God (Zach.14:9 and Gal.3:20), when did a title or titles ever become another person or make you more persons than you already are? There is only one God, who is the First and the Last and everything in between, who is the mediator between God and you as seen in Gal.3:20 but God is One, (See Jn.16:25-29 and notice the word AGAIN in verse 28. Jesus has always been the manifestationof God to the world that he alone created, Gen.1:3 and Jn.8:12, and Jn.10:30; Jn.12:45!)!
Is.49:26And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I the LORD am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob! There is but one who fits this bill and that is Christ Jesus! Zech.14:9And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and His name one. You cannot divide God up into persons, that is nothing but man’s Philosophies of carried over mythologies of the pagan’s and heathens! This fool’s errand was started around 225 AD. and was not ratified for another 225 -250 years before they could come up with terminology which most of all the churches could agree with! Here is the catch though, if you didn’t sign on to their “Dogma” you would be excommunicated out of the Catholic (Universal) Church! This is where many orthodox churches on the east and the west split up in a schism, that started way back in 225 A. D.!
The ones who were trying to stay to the doctrines held onto by the apostles were excommunicated out who were labeled as heretics, such as those who held onto prophecy, speaking in tongues, and living in a spiritual relationship with our Lord as given to us by the Apostles already stated in this article! Some of these people who were written about in the most unloving way by the so-called church of God: Who even hunted these people down and killed them just like any proper heathen would do; they, (The so called Universal or Catholic Church) had not learned the Lord’s ways at all! They went about killing as many of the Montanist’s they could; Who were some of these as well, Novatianists, Donatists, the spiritualists of Franciscans, Anabaptists, Camisard Enthusiasmists, Puritanists, Quakers, Quietisms, Pietists, Second Adventist, Irvingist, from which the Mennonites come from today, which were prosecuted by Catholic, Protestant, and Lutheran alike!
Those who hold onto the doctrine of the trinity because of tradition and rituals and for no other reasons; from Tertullian, which they got their trinity that started to form from at the begin, which came from Theophilus of Antioch, (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theophilus_of_Antioch); from Tertullian a Montanist who they (the Catholic’s) originally said were heretics: All I need is one scripture that repudiates this claim and it should be thrown out for lack of axiom on which to build or structure a doctrine of God’s word, which is built on truth and not a lie! Jn.4:24 for example; which reads God is a Spirit and being God is the only one pure and holy which is blameless as in perfect and without sin as stated as Jesus was in 2 Cor.5:21; we see that Jesus is the Father and when we have seen Jesus we have in fact seen the one who sent Him, Jn.12:45 because the Spirit, God, became flesh, (1 Tm.3:16) and the Spirit, who concieved Jesus, Lk.1:35, who is the Father and Jesus are one, Jn.10:30! And if you have not the Spirit of God which is the Spirit of Jesus you are none of His yet still, Ro.8:9 because the mystery of godliness has been solved in Jesus Christ; 1 Tm.3:16And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh (End of Subject! Jesus was God! Mt.1:23 just as scripture says, not man’s dogma!), justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory: Which repudiates this Trinity Philosophy of men who were in darkness and are still! When something is omnipresent it is undividable, and when something has all knowledge as in omniscient it cannot be divided either and be said to not know something, that only another part of it will know, you just divided it and made something else which is of the same substance but yet is not of it either, which makes it consubstantial; well I can see why they used the word con and stuck it onto substance! Is not a con a deception? Can we not see through their weak deceptions of philosophies of those who walk in error? As seen at this site which will be rebuked here with scripture evidences for support of theologies, that contradict the Roman Catholic Dogma. See this site here for remaining comments…http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trinity . Even Tertullian’s own name spells out the trinity theory, in Latin Ter, meaning three and Tullia is three cities that have their own government that belong to one Sovereign Government but yet holding their own seat and independent governments, is this not the trinity all over again; in which in these ages of philosophers; if they could get their own names in historical writings, they believed the like others like Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle, that they too would live forever in the History of Humanity in their own writing.
God is Love, 1 Jn.4:8, Jesus is the manifestation of the Love of God for us, by which all Salvation comes!
Love is becoming wrapped in flesh, to become a servant, when you are God of the Universe so that you alone can come and take away a curse you gave out for sin; so that your creation would not have to perish for their own inability to keep your words you gave to them, because of their parent’s sin nature and carnality, which has been handed down to their offspring! This is who Jesus is, my God! Jn.20:28; Ac.20:28; Mt.4:4; Lk.4:4; coincidences I think not! Jn.6:63 the flesh profiteth nothing for it fadeth away but the words our God has spoken to us are by which we all will be judged against, Gen.1:1 to Rv.22:21!
If we are to speak as an oracle of God as Peter said then we had better know what He has told us to do and to say; hadn’t we? 1 Pt.4:11If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion forever and ever. Amen. And finally to finish; we had better know this as well, from the same chapter; 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.
You see we had better have been doing well in all that our Lord has told us to do (Mt.12:36-37, if the Lord will judge us for every idle word we speak, how much more so for everything we do as well, Rev.22:11-12?), or we will find ourselves as the unwise servants who were caught unawares and will be beaten with many stripes (as in forevermore!), for not doing what His Heavenly Master had told him to be doing, when He returned from His journeys, and will be forever tormented, where the fire is never quenched and the worm (that is you), dieth not and you become the fuel for the fire: Eze.21:31-32; Eze.22:30-31!
I will leave you with what our Lord said to do in these last days; Rev.2:4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.5Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent. Hag.1:5Now therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts: Consider your ways! He is coming for a bride who has made herself ready for her groom, who is perfect: Eph.5:26That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, 27That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be Holy and without blemish.
Only those who overcome this world that lieth in wickedness (1JUn.5:19), will be with Him at His table at the feast of the wedding banquet, as seen in Rev.2: and chapter 3! The overcomers who have run their race well as the Apostle Paul told Timothy! We can come in first place but if we have not kept to the rules of the race; we will be disqualified and sent to Hell with all the rest of them who say Lord, Lord, have I not done great things for you and the kingdom? The answer you will find in Mt.7: below the straight path and the broad way that leads to destruction and many will go in there at! Only those who are found in His will and doing what He said to do to the very end, will be in His will which is His word to us to do! 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. Just keeps coming back to being perfect unto all good works!
