“WORK”

Once upon a time, a monk who was dishearten about the Roman Catholic Church and all its indulgences, became rebellious: His name was Martin Luther. He wrote and Exhortation called the “95 Thesis” some traditions have it he even nailed it to the door of a chapel of his district, this was at that time a hand written legal notification, for a private party to call and address a situation that was being done wrong in the church, that must be corrected immediately. In other words Martin Luther could be committing suicide for going against the Standard Protocol of the Authorized Church of the Pope and his Bulls!

Now I will go into my topic of discussion, Work, works and all that work that even Jesus came to finish for the Father, Jn.4: 34 Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.

35 Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.

36 And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.

37 And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth.

38 I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours.

Right here we who are Disciples of our One and True Holy Master who is both LORD and the CHIRST, Ac.2:36, who is the One True God seen in 1 Jn.5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ: This is the true God, and eternal life! Who is our Immanuel Mt.1:23, is the one and same LORD of all Ac.10:36. Now that we know who Jesus really is, our God Almighty, Is.9:6, that was made a way for by John the Baptist as foretold in Is.40:3, which shows the same result. The same result that Apostles Paul made in 1 Tm.3:16, that God was manifested in the flesh, just as St. John said as well in Jn.1:1-18, in the Greek originals!

Well good old Martin Luther was doing the best he could, he was getting clues all over the place when he had access to the original writings and oh, how he found all the dogma of the Roman Catholic Church of Pagan Theologies, a den of snakes and charmers!

Well Mr. Luther came up with a couple of doozies as well himself, with this “Saved by Grace and Faith alone” because Grace of God and Fait need more to join in together as in 2 Tm.3: 14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;

15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works! You notice the last word here as well? It is works. If we have not works that our Lord and Master has shown us that he did Himself, then for us to be found “Perfect as He is Perfect” seen in Mt.5:48, then we too must be found walking or having works, just as Jesus did in our lives as well, this too is seen in Jn.14:6.

Beings everyone thinks I’m redundant or long winded: I will start closing

Now with all this said, I would like to start wrapping this up because I have already shown that even Apostle Paul to the Gentiles, showed we too must have works worthy of Repentances Ac.26:19-20. This too can only be done one way, by being Born Again, of the Holy Spirit, Jn.3:3-8; that is seen with evidences of confirmation till we are filled with all the gifts of the Spirit seen in 1 Cor.1:1-ffs and seen in 1 Cor.12:1-ffs, just as soon as we receive the Heart of God and His mind seen in 1 Cor.2:1-16, that is only accomplished in 2 Cor.5:17-21, when we are truly reconciled unto God our Lord of all Jesus Christ, can we then have His mind seen in Jn.14:18 & 26. The and only then can we do the works of our Father which is in Heaven and be found walking as He has shown us as well as told us in the right way in which to go, Mt.7:13-14 and few that there will be that find the narrow Path to the only Straight Gate, which is Jesus Christ alone! This is when all His words come to you in a flash, Mt.10: 16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.

17 But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;

18 And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles.

19 But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak.

20 For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.

So with all this said, I will leave you for your Bible study on the word we all must come to grips with, “WORKS”, without it we cannot have FAITH or the knowledge or the Understanding of the word Grace; which itself needs a study of its own, on Grace’s Doctrines, and its Spirit, that is only found in God’s own Mercy! One last example; Jms.2:14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?

15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food,

16 And 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?

17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.

18 Yea, 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.

19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?

21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?

22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?

23 And 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.

24 Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.

25 Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way?

26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

Now that I’m done, let everyone hear this last thing, for the Lord God, which He has instructed me to say: When you understand all the scriptures and they become one in your heart, they will cleanse you as you walk in Truth (Righteousness, Jms.5:16,)  or bear fruits worthy of Repentance, to walk in Jesus’ True Light, that starts from Gen.1:1 through Rev.22:21 and we can leave nothing undone in our race to His Heavenly Kingdom, for the few, that will search for the Way, The Truth and the Life of Jesus Christ living in us and working through us as we too, leave not one word out of the Holy Bible in our own walks or Works that cleanses as well as Justifies us, 1 Cor.6:11, Jn.15:3 Rev.22:18-19 that came from Deu.4:2, because our Great God changes not, Mal.3:3 nor does His Doctrines, Heb.13:8-9!

What is wrong about America and Americans today!

I will tell you one thing, it is this: When the good old U. S. A. turns over more of our hard-earned tax dollars for when our national policies; who spend more money than they take in on its National Defense Contractor’s Contracts; we are going bankrupt on an ideology fear and hate which is not conducive to a Godly Country so that means we are out of the Will of our Great God who said repeatedly to stay in His Will and then if we don’t we are out of His Grace, which is anything but unconditional to those who repeatedly refuse to love their neighbors! For we are to be servants of a God who is Love which defeats hate any day; for someone will not try to kill anyone who is helping them to succeed, only hate begets hate and we are on a downward spiral of eternal death and total separation does any one who gets off the narrow Path that Jesus has told to go down in all of my sermons will to return to God! And live forever in His Graces, who will never change in His Eternal Policies, Mal.3:6 seen in Heb.13:8-9! NOW just repent and get these stupid war mongers out of office! We are accomplices to all their hate war monger’s ways; that is antichrist at its best to be the beast we all have seen read in the book Revelations! Is it not? 

God will have the last Word! Or will it be a Question?

God will have the last Word!

Habebit verbum ultimum!

Ο Θεός θα έχει την τελευταία λέξη!

אלוהים יהיה המילה האחרונה!

Aut quaerimus?

(Or will it be a Question?)

Ή θα είναι μια ερώτηση?

Let us lead off with prayer as always; Lord let us come to where you need us to be in righteousness and holiness according to thy word to us from your Holy Spirit which will lead us and guide us into all truths; just as you have declared to those who follow you with a pure heart; those Lord who think not of their own lives Lord but in serving you and your gospel Lord, will be those you call home; we who have been faithful working in your fields of harvest, just as you instructed us to do Lord! We thank you for your word which is your grace to us and how you have enlightened us in revelation to know how it is we must be, in order for us to find ourselves approved of by you Lord; not by this world standards Lord but according to thy will as a Father instructs His children, you have given us what we need to know to keep us out of all harm and the snares of this world and Satan its master! We give you all thanksgiving, honor, and praise Lord; as we enter into your word today Lord, let it come into our hearts and take hold of our consciousness and sprinkle its goodness on us so we can keep your word close to us, in and always on our minds so we never lose the depth of understanding and the knowledge that it takes to know that if we put not your word to work for us and our brethren that are lost in this world; we have lost sight of what your word is really all about Lord and that is to reach the lost and dying world with your words of salvation and Love! We thank you Lord for all the gifts of the Spirit that you have bestowed on your church Lord so we can be a light on top of that hill which all the world can see in these last days, now I ask you Lord let us receive what you have for us great God so we draw off your eternal power so we never lose our preserving flavor which flows directly from under your throne, out of your throne room and directly to your children as they meditate on your word day and night and let it flow out of our bellies as your living waters: Anoint us with thy own self Lord as we go out into the highways and byways searching, trying our best to get thy house full and over flowing as you give the increase Lord! Jesus this is my prayer Lord that we will be found as good and faithful servants working in your fields of harvest when you return, and be that ready servant that will open up the door immediately at your return, no matter what time it is when you return, day or night, just so we can hear our master’s words; “Well done My good and faithful servant, you have been faithful with a few things, now I will make you lord over many; Come and sit and I will prepare a feast for you and serve you myself; that where I am you may be also!” Let us come to you now and hear what you have for us today Lord! In Jesus name we pray, Amen and Amen!

What thus sayeth the Lord?

מה כה אמר ה ‘?

Τι είπε Ούτω λέγει ο Κύριος?

Quid hæc dicit Dominus?

Many times our Lord Jesus talked to us in the Bible, using straight forward statements such as this one I will talk about in just a minute: When Jesus began His ministry just after being led into the wilderness by the Holy Spirit for forty days and forty nights, He was tempted (Which should be translated to be proved or to be tested by the tempter or tester!) by Satan (Which is called the Tempter or Tester or One who proves, here in verse 3. While James says Jm.1:13Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: 14But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. 15Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.): So the devil as used in verse 5 which means (diabolos: slanderous, accusing falsely), tested Jesus in His state of frailty of being flesh, bone, and blood: Jesus used scriptures (Which were His words to begin with, 1 Pt.1:11 & 2 Pt.1:21 is the same person just in different forms, refer to Ro.8:9; 1 Tm.3:16 & 1 Jn.5:20!), to ward off Satan’s attach of His human character and living soul, which was still housing God’s Deity that only belongs to God the Holy Spirit which is His power and Glory, Is.42:8 & 48:11: Where He says I will not give my Glory to another; Jesus showed everyone just exactly who He was in Mt.4:7Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. Jesus hid His glory from the people most of the time so that all scripture could be fulfilled and all the glory would then be transferred to the Holy Spirit from whence it came. But beings Jesus is Lord He was not really tempted at all because He knew all things were His now and forever; Jesus knew at twelve years of age who He was as we see in Lk.2:49And he said unto them: How is it that ye sought me: Wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s business? Jesus was saying this to His natural mother and His adopted father, which adopted Him because the Holy Spirit adopted Joseph’s father King David and his son King Solomon, to be His perpetual Son forever to sit on the throne of Israel 2 Sam.7:14 several centuries before in Jerusalem so that He could not only be their King of kings but LORD of Lords: Both Lord and the Christ, Ac.2:36!  This is the reason Jesus answered the tester, the false accuser of the brethren, the adversary, and the father of all lies; with what we all are to take to heart; which was the answer to the first test in verse four: 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 (Jesus told everyone He is the bread of Life that cometh down from heaven but we must be sustained by the word of God, that proceeded out of Jesus’ 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! Jn.6:31-35). And this is “What thus sayeth the Lord our God!” Eternal Salvation is by the word of God, Jn.5:39Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me (Your God Jesus! 1 Tm.3:16). 40And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life. 41I receive not honour from men. 42But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you. That our God the Holy Spirit became flesh and blood for us and died for us and you still will not walk in the light of His words! This world is doing exactly what He said they would do; 44How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only? 43I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not (Which means Yashuah or Joshua which means; Yahweh, LORD is Salvation): if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. Today’s world and man’s theologies, philosophies, psychologies, metaphysics, dogmas, religious rituals of vain traditions and worldly pagan festival’s designed for the merchants to sell and to drive the world to materialism and capitalism, which is lust of the flesh, the pride of life, and the lust of the eyes, 1 Jn.2:15-17 and we who are of Jesus Christ know that this whole world lies in wickedness, 1 Jn.5:19And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness! And all humanity run along as if everything is just fine and dandy as they run straight for Hell! Just because they listened to some preacher tell them they are saved by faith and grace alone! Let me do as my master does by asking a question: How is it we say we are Christian’s and keep not His words of Truth by which salvation comes? Let us hope it is from ignorance to what His scriptures say; for many think because if they know not much; it will protect them from the wrath to come. I guess they are referring to: Lk.12:47And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. 48But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more. Well guess what, if you are going through trials and tribulations, maybe, just maybe, our Lord is trying to get your attention and get you back on the straight and narrow before it is too late for you and He just gets tired of trying to reach a degenerate heart and gives you over to your own strong delusions, which are contrary to His living Word! Hag.1:7Thus saith the LORD of hosts: Consider your ways!

The very next verse here in Luke says this: Lk.12:49I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled? This was a verse of Judgment to come as Peter warns in 2 Pt.3:7But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word, are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the Day of Judgment and perdition of ungodly men. 10But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. And 12Looking for and hasting unto the coming of The Day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? But I tell you Jesus wanted to send the fire of Judgment on the Sanhedrin which consisted of the Pharisees and Sadducees! Jesus wanted to send that convicting fire of the Holy Ghost Baptism spoken of by John the Baptist in 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: Every Evangelist wants a revival even Jesus; who is the greatest evangelist the world has ever seen, God in the flesh with us, Mt.1:23!!! Lk.3:16John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire: 17Whose fan is in his (Jesus’) hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and will gather the wheat into his garner; but the chaff he will burn with fire unquenchable. And Peter knew this as well, as we saw earlier in his scriptures the Holy Spirit laid on Peter’s heart to minister to us! Peter instructed us to be found in a certain condition of being; 9The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 11Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness (Meaning word and deed!), 12Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God 13Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. 14Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless. 15And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; 16As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. 17Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.

18But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever. Amen.

This is the pure heart tested in the fire of this world who has repented from their sins and have turned around and put their lives in a new direction, Ac.2:40; 2 Cor.6:17-18, and have done as our Master, our King, our Eternal Father has told us to do; Jn.14:15If ye love me, keep my commandments. He told His disciples to follow Him; and that is exactly what we are to do too! Jn.14:6Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. Jesus was our perfect example we are to follow or we will not come to the Father! What manner of person ought we to be? Without Holiness, and Righteousness no man will see the Kingdom of God! This is why we need to have a Holy Conversion and be found with Godliness or we have missed the mark by our ignorance not knowing what the word of God has told us as Peter said of those who could not understand Paul’s testimonies to their own destruction! You see the Apostle Paul knew Jesus had told the Apostles those who hear their words and keep their words are these, Jn.8:47He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God. These are the same who find every reason in the world not to follow after scripture (This is called being contentious! Do a Bible study on that word!)  and try to justify themselves by saying that they do not want to be found as being a legalist, but the Apostle Paul told us we must have works worthy of repentance, Ac.26:20But 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. You see all scripture is our Law; 2 Tm.3:13But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. 14But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; 15And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 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. You see if we keep unto His (Jesus’) words of truth and do as instructed by Jesus; we will follow Him in all truth and in all scripture as required by Jesus Himself in Jn.15:20Remember the word that I said unto you: The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. Exactly as Paul was talking about just prior to 2 Tm.3:16-17 if we abide in the truth of scripture we will find ourselves being persecuted today as well, as we look back to Paul’s writings in the same place we were earlier, 2 Tm.3:1This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4Traitors, heady, high minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away!

(They preach a good song and dance and speak the gospel word for truth but they walk in the world still and are friends with it, Jms.4:4 as they continue to love this world and their lives all the more, such a one as this, cannot be a disciple of Jesus Christ, Lk.14:26-27! Because they are not bearing a cross and putting their flesh under subjection, Ro.8:1-14 by the renewing of their minds, Ro.12:1-2; or we are not being lead by the Holy Spirit but are in the flesh still so we only deceive ourselves by our own actions, Mt.7:15Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. 21Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity! This is exactly what the Apostle Paul told the Ephesus Church, Ac.20:16-38, namely this, 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. 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. 31Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears. 32And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified. We must be sanctified to God and His word of His Grace; The word of God is His grace to us when we abide in it! Then He can show us His favour! This is the same thing Jesus was telling the disciples in Jn.15:1-27 that we must abide in Him and His word or we are with those that are still without and have not committed their own self to Jesus only and are headed for Hell! You cannot drink from two cups; the cup of the world called mammon, which will end in the cup of wrath, Mt.6:24No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

You can have the right mental attitude but without putting the flesh under subjection to our minds Will and the Holy Spirit’s Will, we are not in the truth as a true worshipper in truth and in spirit, Jn.4:24! And they that worship him *must* *worship him* (Jesus!) *in spirit* and *in truth*! Of What? The Gospel of Jesus Christ that starts at Gen.1:1 and ends at Rv.22:21, 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. We must come to Him and His word in order to have Him and be His servant which is a child of God! This is what the Lord’s brother the Apostle James was talking about when he said we need to have faith with works which shows our understanding of God’s Will for us in our lives as we obey His divine words, Jm.2:1-26For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also! Jms.1:25But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed. 26If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain. 27Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.)

Back to 2 Tm.3:

6For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, 7Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 8Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. 9But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was. 10But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience, 11Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra (Can we say the same about our lives we are leading for our Great God?); what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me. 12Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. (Are we suffering persecution for our Lord? Then the Lord has a word for you! Hag.1:7Thus saith the LORD of hosts: Consider your ways!)

13But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. These are those who walk after the Lord in their own fashion as if Jesus wasn’t serious about obedience to this Holy Bible which is His Will for us yesterday, today, and forever (Heb.13:8) because God changes not, Mal.3:6For I am the LORD, I change not; The Only way to keep from the wrath to come is to be found approved of God in keeping His every word in perfection, this is what Peter and Paul were talking about as well as Jesus, Mt.5:48Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect: 2 Pt.3:14Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.

You ask well; how are we to do that? By studying this word and find yourself approved of God fulfilling all His scriptures; Peter told you: 18But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ! Which is impossible with man who has not been born again of water and spirit as Jesus told us to do in Jn.3:3Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. 4Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? 5Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 6That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. (Refer to Jn.1:12-13). 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. 9Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be? 10Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things? 11Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness. 12If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things? Hag.1:5Now therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts: Consider your ways!

There is no repentance were a person does nothing different from before they asked the Lord of all Glory to forgive their sins and then go away and walk the same as they did before, that is not repenting! Jesus started His ministry after the testing by our adversary of this world and owner and ruler of this world, for it will be his home forever, in the lake of fire; and we are to have dominion over him, 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!

Jesus said in Mt.4:17From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. Because the Kingdom of God was with man as we see these verses here, Mt.12:28But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you. Which explains whose finger was casting out all these demons and spirit possessed children of God in Lk.11:20But if I *with the finger of God* cast out devils, *no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you*. For this reason Jesus had to go back from wince He came, Jn.3:13And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven: As Jesus explained yet again in another verse in the same book just a little further along, 16:27For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God. 28I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: *again, I leave the world, and go to the Father*. Jn.8:23And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world. 24I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am He, ye shall die in your sins. Jesus is the I Am look a little further in the same chapter, 58Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I Am. Moses was told by God that His name is ’eh·yeh (I Am) ’ă·šer (Who, What, or That) ’eh·yeh (I Am) in other words I Am What I Am or I Will be what I will be He is everything we will ever need Him to be in a God for us and Him alone, Deu.6:4Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: Mk.12:29And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord! Zech.14:9And the LORD (God our Jesus!) shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one. Eph.4:5One Lord, one faith, one baptism!

Jn.8:59Then took they up stones to cast at him (Jesus): but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by. The Priest knew exactly who Jesus was saying He was: He was saying to them I Am the I Am! Just as Isaiah prophesied, Is.7:14Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name *Immanuel (Meaning God with Us! Mt.1:23!)*; look to another verse in Is.9:6For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. (All these titles are just one person our LORD OF Lords and KING of Kings: “Jesus the CHRIST!”: “The HOLY ONE”!)

Which Isaiah prophesied that one would go before Him and prepare the way of our Lord and God; Is.40:3The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.  Is this not our description of John the Baptist preparing the way for Jesus? Jesus the Christ which is both LORD and the CHRIST as we see in Acts.2:36Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made the same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ. This same God has made Jesus LORD of ALL, Mt.28:18; Ac.10:36The word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (He is Lord of all!). This same God who said He would not share His glory with another in Is.42:8I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images. As well as seen 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. As the Apostle Paul exclaimed in 1 Cor.6:8Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. Paul knew who Jesus was because he was trained by Him in the deserts of Arabia and returned again and went to Damascus; Gal.1:15-17 and Paul preached if we preach any other gospel than what is in this Holy Bible we will be accursed, Gal.1:8-9 twice cursed and three times cursed counting John’s curse given to him by Jesus Himself in Rv.22:18-19 which is exactly what was told to Moses in his desert wonderings to tell the children of Israel, Deu.5:32-33; 17:20; 28:14; Josh.1:7 and finally in Pro.4:

20My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.

21Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.

22For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.

23Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.

24Put away from thee a froward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee.

25Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee.

26Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established.

27Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.

This is the same thing the Lord told Joshua in Deuteronomy as well as in Josh.1:7Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper withersoever thou goest.

8This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

9Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

(By the things we see in this world of evil and shame, 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.) We are in that age of trouble and we are not to be distracted by the ways of this world but we are to be held to a higher calling from our Lord God and we are called to be the righteousness of God in Jesus Christ, 1 Cor.5:21! If we are not we will be a shame to our great God Jesus Christ reconciling the world unto Himself, a bride who is spotless and without wrinkle, totally blameless! Who meditate on His word day and night as we have been instructed to do, these laws of Holiness and Righteousness change not just as our God changes not! I have shown you this in Mal.3:6For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed. And you are not consumed yet because God is longsuffering and calling all to repentance so none should be lost; but no one knows how to repent properly according to His word; not man’s idea of repentance but Jesus’; He is the way the truth and the life that we must live to have a life shown to be of repentance according to His sovereign Words of Life: Jn.6:63It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. When we fulfill His words of life we have shown ourselves repented and are in His Will for us as in these scriptures for us to live by: Mal.3:16Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.

17And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.

18Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not. In the Millennium to come as told to John the revelator in Rv.2:25But that which ye have already hold fast till I come. 26And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: 27And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. 28And I will give him the morning star: 29He that hath an ear; let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

So you see God’s Will for us and His word from the Old Testament to the New are perpetual meaning they transcend time and are of His heart and mind and will never change no matter what this God hating world does! It does not matter how low this world falls into condemnation, we are to be a shining light of the word of God in a dying world; We are to be the living words of God as God lives in us for the whole world to see (2 Cor.6:16for 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(of the world), and be ye separate (A Holy Nation of Children of God!), 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)! If we do not understand what was written it is to our own shame, Dan.12:2And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.

This means because you know not the word of God and His Statutes, Laws, Commandments, Sayings, Precepts, and Lines upon Lines as Is.28 has stated you will not be allowed to become rulers with Him in His millennium to come because you have not prepared yourself according to His Way and His Word which is His Will for you and all His children, Mt.12:46While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him. 47Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee. 48But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren? 49And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! 50For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.

You have become one of these instead: Is.28:13But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken. Just like St. Peter said because you wrest with the scriptures to your own detriment, shame and condemnation! And the answer is because you really never read all the scriptures and saw how they are all harmonious to His glory and His wisdom and not the wisdom of this world that is about to pass away at any time! How are we to learn His words of truth and get them imbedded in our minds and always upon our hearts, with man this is impossible but with God in us all things then become possible; it takes a supernatural act of redemption so that we can be taught by God Himself as Isaiah was talking about just a few verses earlier in this passage; 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. With a stammering lip and another tongue will He speak to this people, this is the one who had all scriptures written, it was the Spirit of God as we see in 1 Pt.1:11Searching 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. Which is the Holy Spirit, 2 Pt.1:21For 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: 20Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 19We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: 18And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount. You see it takes the Holy Spirit to lead you to all truths as our Lord Jesus said He would; Jn.14:16And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever; 17Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for He dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. 18I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. Jesus is that Spirit leading us to all truths in His scriptures in just the right order to understand what He wants us to do as Isaiah said: 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: (Mature in Doctrine of the Apostles and the Lord God in Jesus Christ!) 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. Jesus told us He would not leave us comfortless and He will come to us and He will be in us, the Spirit of truth that the world cannot have unless they have been born-again His way, Eph.4:5One Lord, one faith, one baptism: It’s not man’s ritual of baptism that reveals God in Jesus Christ it is His Baptism, Jn.1:12But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. The same Baptism Jesus was talking about here: Jn.3:3Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. 4Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? 5Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 6That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

So only those who have been truly born-again of the water and of the spirit (Holy Spirit) are these who have been born as the Apostles baptized their converts who had truly repented and came up out of the water speaking in tongues as the Holy Spirit gave the utterances; For only Jesus’ ordained Apostles (Jn.15:16) had the keys to heaven and could bind on earth and in heaven with their words given to them by the Holy Spirit operating in their lives; as we see in the Book of Acts! They had the true baptism formula for baptizing the way Jesus wanted them to, as seen in Ac.2:38-40; 8:16; 10:44-48; which Peter brought to the council in Jerusalem showing how God had poured out upon the gentiles the Holy Spirit the same way that they had received it! By speaking in tongues and prophesying the same as they did when the whole world of Judea asked what meaneth this as Peter exclaimed that this is what Joel prophesied about in Joel.2:28 which is happening now today as well as back then as Peter said it would in Ac.2:39 for this is for us and our children’s children; to all of us who are afar off, we are still in the same age of Grace as when these apostles and the church of Jesus Christ was birthed on the day of Pentecost! As we see the Apostle Paul who was taught by God our Lord Jesus out in the deserts of Arabia and Damascus received the same revelation as shown when he met up with the disciples of John the Baptist in Ephesus, He asked them in: Ac.19:1And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples, 2He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost. 3And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said: Unto John’s baptism. 4Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus. 5When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus: 6And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied. 7And all the men were about twelve.

So how is it that with so much evidence in the written word of God, has the world not received what our Lord has told them to do? I will show you yet again why: The world and her churches are as these that were prophesied in Isaiah as we look to Is.4:1And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach. These are the seven churches of God through the seven ages that are talked about in Revelation chapter 2 and 3, they were all of the Lord’s churches but He has something against them, they had all fallen into worldly doctrine and had left their first call or first love, they had forgotten to keep in repentance and then came back into the world and sought after our Lord their way as these women in Is. 4, they wanted to feed their own selves the way they wanted to eat or receive the word, and they wanted to dress their self the way they wanted just as those who want their religion and the dress of this world, they wanted only the man’s name to take away their shame which is their eternal condemnation which the Lord will never Marry and allow to become His Bride! This is what is the matter with this world’s churches of anything goes: Just come to Jesus the way you are and all will be all right as long as you just believe! Jesus said *If* you Love Me; Keep My Commandments! This means prove it! How are we going to prove it? We must be about Him and His business when He comes for His church, Lk.2:49And he said unto them: How is it that ye sought me: Wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s business? This is exactly what Jesus told His disciples: Jn.4:35Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? Behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest. 36And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together. 37And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth. 38I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours. Mk.8:35For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it. 36For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? 37Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? 38Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels. Mk.16:15And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. 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. 19So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. 20And they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.

Unless we receive this message of His, with a child like heart just for Him and His love for us; and unless we have received it and let it come in and do a work in our lives; then we will be saved when we follow Him as He told us to do: Or we have heard and have head knowledge and walk away just as before without doing anything about it, we are as those who are without understanding talked about in scripture: Is.55:7Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. 8For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. 9For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. Pr.15:15The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: Just as those seven women in Is.4:1; Pr.21:2Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the LORD pondereth the hearts. 3To do justice and judgment is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice. (Meaning why are you continually repenting for the same sins you keep doing when supposively you have repented? Could it be that you have not the power of the Holy Spirit in control of your life and you have not given yourself over to Him yet; this is the covetness and contentiousness; that the King Saul found himself in and lost his kingdom because of disobedience, 1 Sam.15:22And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams. 23For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.). This is the same as receiving Jesus into your life and returning back into the world you should have come out of; your last state will be worst then the first one! All because you failed to receive the Lord as a child; Mt.18:1At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? 2And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, 3And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

4Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Those seven ladies talked about in Is.4:1 is not the way to heaven and unless we humble ourselves in full accordance to His living words of truth and allow them to be in us and we following Him only; or we have fallen short and are still being deceived by the ruler of this world, who continually says did the Lord really say that? Surely you will not die but you will be as gods and know all things, good and evil, so how is it we cannot discern yet still, to keep away from this world and its evil ways and doctrines of the foolish worldly wise; 1 Jn.5:19And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness. We are to be in the world but not of it, Ac.2:40And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation. 2 Cor.6:17Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. 18And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. Just as Jesus said in John chapter 17 we are to be as one with Him as He is one with His Father the Holy Spirit, Jn.10:30I and my Father are one. If we were as one with our Father the Lord Jesus; the world would still want to pick up stones and throw at us today as they did in Jesus’ day! Jm.4:4Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. But if we humble ourselves to Him and His word we will then be in a position for Him to draw closer to us; 6But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. 7Submit yourselves therefore to God: Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. 9Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. 10Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up. 1 Jn.4:4Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. 5They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. 6We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

You see I have shown how we must surrender all of our heart, minds, souls, spirits, and strengths over to Him for His use and go forth and seek a lost world who seeks their own destruction and they follow the leaders of this world instead of the one and only true leader we should be following and that is Jesus Christ and His Apostles’ who had the keys to heaven, and they used them and have shown us how we are to proceed to come to the Father our Lord Jesus Christ; Jn.12:45And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me. Jesus is the express image of God in man, 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. When we have seen Jesus we have seen the Father, Jn.14:7-9! Now that we know for a fact that Jesus is God in the flesh we had better figure out how we can serve Him according to His will or we will find ourselves as the unforgiveable in this age or the age to come; 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 we didn’t do as instructed, in the verse right before these; 30He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad. All because we worshipped Him our way instead of His way; is it because we are ashamed of Him and His word? So then, it will be ok with you if He is ashamed of you then, when He comes in the glory of His Father! Mk.8:38Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels. I would not want to be you in that day! You sow what you reap, are we sowing for the Lord or reaping for the Lord or ourselves to our own shame? Dan.12:2And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. Mt.25:31When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: 32And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: 33And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. 34Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: 36Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. 37Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? 38When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? 39Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? 40And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. 41Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: 42For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 43I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. 44Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? 45Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. 46And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal. 30And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. All because you didn’t do anything with what our Lord had given you to use for His glory! You are the servant hiding his Lord’s talent and not using it so that it can accomplish what it was sent forth to do, we must use His calling He put on us for His kingdom to come or we are exactly as that servant that will be cut asunder and cast out into outer darkness where there will be gnashing of teeth! When we keep His word and doeth them we are liken unto a wise man who built his house on a foundation which was dug deep into the word of God clear down to the rock which is Christ Jesus, in which He said on this rock I will build my church and it was the rock of truth of this gospel of Jesus Christ and Him crucified for our forgiveness and unless we are baptized His way we have not received the Blood of Atonement to our souls for the forgiveness of our sins! It must be done His way because all things that are Holy and Sacred are tied directly to His name! Jn.14:14If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. When we keep His Commandments, If we love Him, Jn.14:15! If we do then He will keep His part of the covenant agreement when we are buried in His likeness; Col.2:6As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: 7Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. 8Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. 9For in him dwelleth all the 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.

The New Testament Covenant; Ro.6:1What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? 2God forbid: How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? 3Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? 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. Is it because you have not been buried in His name that you cannot live an overcoming life as required in Revelation chapter 2 and 3! Because you have not been planted in His likeness, buried in the water of remission of sin, when something goes into remission it stops what it was doing before! Jesus said to go and sin no more (Jn.8:11) in order to be made whole, Jn.5:14; go and sin no more unless a worse thing come upon you! For man’s doctrine tells us that Jesus took all sin out of the world and once saved your always saved! Jesus never said that: he said go and sin no more, meaning there is still the possibility of losing your salvation through disobedience to His word, this is the unforgiveable sin of disobedience to what He has said to do! Jn.8:10When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? Hath no man condemned thee? 11She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her: Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more. As well as St. Peter in 2 Pt.2:20For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. 21For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. 22But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire. Just as Jesus talked about he that had received the Lord and had his house meaning his soul all clean up and garnished and the evil spirits that were thrown out came back upon the man, with seven more worst than the first one; and his last state was worse than the first and that man ends up being eight times more wicked than he was at the first! Mt.12:43When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. 44Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. 45Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation. Unless we stay in the word of God as our direction for us, in this world that is lost and dying in its sin; we will find ourselves entangled in its webs of lies and deceit just as in these scriptures given for our admonition! Unless we use all of God’s scriptures (2 Tm.3:16-17) we are not in His will yet, as we see in Mt.12:46While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him. 47Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee. 48But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren? 49And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! 50For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.

Only those who strive to enter in at the straight gate on the narrow path of life, that is according to His word will enter into His Kingdom as Jesus said, Jn.14:6Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. He is our gate we must travel through by going His way in His truths (words) and by walking the way He walked just as the Apostle Paul instructed us, 1 Cor.12:31But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way. Which he did in the very next chapter; 1 Cor.13:1Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. 2And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity (Love), I am nothing: 3And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity (LOVE), it profiteth me nothing. We can do everything just the way Jesus said to do it and all the Apostles and still find ourselves left outside of the Kingdom of God! All because we did have not the right attitude; the attitude of Love for Him and Him only, which is obedience to His every word (because we love Him and for no other reason!)! Many just go through life with the attitude to do just what hast to be done to get into heaven; here’s a clue for ya; they aint going in! There heart is not right just like Simon the sorcerer who tried to buy the Holy Spirit with money! Without the proper heart and attitude you’re not going into the Kingdom of God because you have not received His heart at the sacred rebirth experience where you get a heart like His which is Love for your fellow sinner that must be saved just like you! That is your cross to bear, just as Ezekiel was to tell whoever God instructed him to tell of his faults and to repent or if he didn’t do as the Lord said that man’s blood would be on him!

The watchman!

Ezek.3:16And it came to pass at the end of seven days, that the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 17Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me. 18When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. 19Yet if thou warn the wicked; and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul. 20Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumbling-block before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand. 21Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also thou hast delivered thy soul. Are we not all watchmen who have been given this word of truth? To bring this gospel message of the Kingdom of God, to all nations and then the end of time will come and is even at the door? Mt.24:14 Yes it is so! So it is our job! Or you have fallen back into sin and complacency of this world by its distractions! We must adhere to all scripture as these below and then I’ll be finishing up!

Being Planted (Buried in Baptism), in the New Testament Covenant  

Ro.6:5For 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 (Ac.2:38-40; through 19:1-7 to 2 Tm.3:16-17: Brings us to all scripture is by the inspiration of God, so that we may be perfect, etc!), 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. 11Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. 12Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof: 13Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. 14For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. 15What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. 16Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? 17But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. 18Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness. 19I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness. 20For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness. 21What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death. 22But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.

23For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. So if you live as you did before your baptism you have not had a true conversion and have not truly been born-again of the watery grave in His name in the only name by which salvation comes, Ac.4:9If we this day be examined of the good deed done to the impotent man, by what means he is made whole; 10Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. 11This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.

12Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

Closing with questions being answered with questions

  1. Matthew 9:14-15 (NIV) 14 Then John’s disciples came and asked him, “How is it that we and the Pharisees fast, but your disciples do not fast?”  15 Jesus answered, “How can the guests of the bridegroom mourn while he is with them?
  2. Matthew 15:1-3 (NIV) Then some Pharisees and teachers of the law came to Jesus from Jerusalem and asked, 2 “Why do your disciples break the tradition of the elders? They don’t wash their hands before they eat!”  3 Jesus replied, “And why do you break the command of God for the sake of your tradition?
  3. Matthew 15:32-34 (NIV) 33 His disciples answered, “Where could we get enough bread in this remote place to feed such a crowd?”  34 “How many loaves do you have?” Jesus asked.
  4. Matthew 17:24-26 (NIV) 24 After Jesus and his disciples arrived in Capernaum, the collectors of the two-drachma tax came to Peter and asked, “Doesn’t your teacher pay the temple tax?” 25 “Yes, he does,” he replied.  When Peter came into the house, Jesus was the first to speak. “What do you think, Simon?” he asked. “From whom do the kings of the earth collect duty and taxes—from their own sons or from others?”
  5. Matthew 21:16 (NIV) 16 “Do you hear what these children are saying?” they asked him.  “Yes,” replied Jesus, “have you never read, “‘From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise’?”
  6. Matthew 26:6-10 (NIV)  6 While Jesus was in Bethany in the home of a man known as Simon the Leper, 7 a woman came to him with an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume, which she poured on his head as he was reclining at the table.  8 When the disciples saw this, they were indignant. “Why this waste?” they asked. 9 “This perfume could have been sold at a high price and the money given to the poor.”  10 Aware of this, Jesus said to them, “Why are you bothering this woman?”
  7. Mark 2:1-11 (NIV) 5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.”  6 Now some teachers of the law were sitting there, thinking to themselves, 7 “Why does this fellow talk like that? He’s blaspheming! Who can forgive sins but God alone?”  8 Immediately Jesus knew in his spirit that this was what they were thinking in their hearts, and he said to them, “Why are you thinking these things? 9 Which is easier: to say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up, take your mat and walk’? 10 But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins….” He said to the paralytic, 11 “I tell you, get up, take your mat and go home.”
  8. Mark 4:10, 13 (NIV) 10 When he was alone, the Twelve and the others around him asked him about the parables…13 Then Jesus said to them, “Don’t you understand this parable? How then will you understand any parable?
  9. Mark 4:38, 40 (NIV) 38 Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?” 40 He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?”
  10. Mark 7:17-18 (NIV) 17 After he had left the crowd and entered the house, his disciples asked him about this parable. 18 “Are you so dull?” he asked.
  11. Mark 10:2-3 (NIV) 2 Some Pharisees came and tested him by asking, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?”  3 “What did Moses command you?” he replied.
  12. Mark 12:14-17 (NIV) 14 They came to him and said, “Teacher, we know you are a man of integrity. You aren’t swayed by men, because you pay no attention to who they are; but you teach the way of God in accordance with the truth. Is it right to pay taxes to Caesar or not? 15 Should we pay or shouldn’t we?”  But Jesus knew their hypocrisy. “Why are you trying to trap me?” he asked. “Bring me a denarius and let me look at it.” 16 They brought the coin, and he asked them, “Whose portrait is this? And whose inscription?” “Caesar’s,” they replied.  17 Then Jesus said to them, “Give to Caesar what is Caesar’s and to God what is God’s.” And they were amazed at him.
  13. Mark 12:18, 20-24 (NIV) 18 Then the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to him with a question… 20 Now there were seven brothers. The first one married and died without leaving any children. 21 The second one married the widow, but he also died, leaving no child. It was the same with the third. 22 In fact, none of the seven left any children. Last of all, the woman died too. 23 At the resurrection whose wife will she be, since the seven were married to her?”  24 Jesus replied, “Are you not in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God?
  14. Luke 2:48-49 (NIV) 48 When his parents saw him, they were astonished. His mother said to him, “Son, why have you treated us like this? Your father and I have been anxiously searching for you.”  49 “Why were you searching for me?” he asked. “Didn’t you know I had to be in my Father’s house?”

  These are just a few, for there are many more to draw from as well! But Jesus made a statement which was in the form of a question on the cross at Calvary He said: Ps.22:  1My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? Which Jesus spoke on the very cross of Calvary for one reason and one reason only; it was and still is prophetic in its nature! Jesus knew exactly who He was and why He was on the cross and the cup He was made to drink; for all humanity is required to drink from the dregs of the sin of wrath to come, for all have sinned and come short of God’s glory, and are required to pay for their sins with their lives, for the punishment of sin is death to the sinner, it is a commandment of God, which is still in effect!

He has made us quite aware of the price to be paid for our sin; and He has shown us how we can have power over sin and death and the grave! But it is up to us to use what He has given to us so that we can decide for ourselves which is called free will, to either accept His offer and walk in His ordinances or walk as they, which walk in the world of wickedness! Just as the seven women who wanted their own food and clothing but wanted a name of the man to take away their shame (their sin and condemnation)!

Jesus has shown us in His words of life how we must be saved by His Ordained Apostles who had the keys to heaven! You notice they had keys to heaven, the word keys is plural for a reason, it takes all scripture to be righteous and it takes separation from this world and keep only unto Jesus Christ in order to be Holy as in consecrated for His use because we are supposed to be His Holy Temple that He will use to walk in this world, in us!

Many in that last day will be outside just as the unwise virgins who let their Holy Oil run out which is symbolic of their Holy Spirit Baptism, you see it hast to be renewed daily, 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. If we are not in the will of God we are in our will which is the same as saying we don’t need those things that the Lord has for us; we will do as we think is right and that is the sin that is never forgiven in this age or the next! 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 (Who inspired all the scriptures to be written by God’s (Jn.4:24) Grace, Eph.4:29-30; Mt.12:36-37), it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come. Because all scripture is Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit inspired and you have decided to put your word and your truths above our God’s, you are the clay pot trying to tell the potter what he must make! Who are you that can stand against this world’s only God and creator? Ro.3:3For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? 4God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged. 5But if our unrighteousness commend the righteousness of God, what shall we say? Is God unrighteous who taketh vengeance? (I speak as a man) 6God forbid: for then how shall God judge the world? You can believe any way you want but will it justify you when you stand before your God who will judge all that you have ever said and believed? This is the reason God gave us the story of the man named Job! All His friends believed wrong and God commanded that they all bring sacrifices for their sin and to have Job the only correct one among them pray for them and God would receive Job’s interceding prayer of sacrifice for them so He would not have to consume them in their sin of being incorrect! Even if we preach His word and lead all the world to Christ Jesus and we are still found to be in our own ways, living in the world the way we want and not the way He wants His children to live; we find ourselves still in His wrath to come! To be cast out just like the unwise servant who was cut asunder and cast out into outer darkness where there will be gnashing of teeth! These words are not some kind of fairy tale or some myth thought up through the ages! Is.55:11So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. Our God cannot lie, Tit.1:2In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began; Num.23:19God is not a man, that he should lie; Heb.6:18That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: You see we have a hope of salvation just as the Apostle Paul preached that he would run his race well and not fall short of his calling and that he would be crowned with a crown of glory for holding onto the truths of his salvation he received for doing all that God our Lord Jesus had for him to do! The Apostle Paul was for all of us an example to follow just as his Lord was! 2 Tm.4:1I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; 2Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. 3For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. 5But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry. 6For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. 7I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:

8Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. Do you really Love His Appearing? Or are you afraid? If sin is in your life be very, very, afraid for the wrath of our God is Hell for all who have sinned and have not correctly been baptized in His Name according to His Apostles and even Himself in 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: Jesus said I and My Father are One and I will send the Holy Ghost which is called by My name so we see the name of the Father and the name of the Holy Spirit is Jesus Christ! Because He is God with us, Mt.1:23! And when we baptize in the very name of Jesus Christ as required by scriptures we are in full agreement with all scripture in baptizing in this manner, Col.3:17And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

So finally I will say this last thing and then I’m done; Many people in that last day will be outside of the gate and not allowed in because they have left something undone such as these: 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. These verses are for Teachers, Preachers, Evangelist, Prophets, and Apostles who have not kept their faith in accordance to His word and have gotten out of line with their doctrines who lead people astray, Mt.5:19Whosoever 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. Anyone who says we are not to worry about His commandments is not your friend, for they are the least in the kingdom of God which will be Hell because that is going to be the least place in God’s Universe because their righteousness was not exceeding that of the scribes and Pharisees, who knew all the scriptures but did not walk in them, are you going to be the same as they?

If you are you will be just like one of those who thought this is no big deal somehow God will make a way for all sinners to get to heaven somehow, that is even what the Pope is preaching today, he says even the atheist will make it to heaven as long as they do good! This was on the welcome page of AOL’s web site on Huffington Post news article on May 23rd 2013 Where we have also found articles today of men who say they are the antichrist which was miss interpreted and was really meant to say another Christ as incarnated again in the flesh, which he tells his followers to have his mark, the mark 666 on their person and has a religious following who say he is Jesus! Which he says there is no heaven and no hell, heaven which is this earth is heaven and it is only hell to those who do not follow him! These are the end times my friends, are you going to be left outside when Jesus comes to take His bride home? Many in that day will say My God My God why have you forsaken me?! And Jesus in His usual style will have one of His question scriptures ready for you too! Like this one; Lk.6:46And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say? Hag.1:5Now therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts: Consider your ways! Mal.1:6A son honoureth his father, and a servant his master: if then I be a father, where is mine honour? and if I be a master, where is my fear? saith the LORD of hosts unto you, O priests, that despise my name. And ye say, Wherein have we despised thy name? 7Ye offer polluted bread upon mine altar; and ye say, Wherein have we polluted thee? In that ye say, The table of the LORD is contemptible. 8And if ye offer the blind for sacrifice, is it not evil? and if ye offer the lame and sick, is it not evil? offer it now unto thy governor; will he be pleased with thee, or accept thy person? saith the LORD of hosts.

You see every time we offer up prayers and we have sin in our lives we are something detestable to Him because we offer up lame sacrifices of uncleanness and our stink is always before His nostrils as we offer up profane prayer! Look to these scriptures, Pr.15:8The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD: but the prayer of the upright is his delight. 9The way of the wicked is an abomination unto the LORD: but he loveth him that followeth after righteousness. Pr.28:9He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination. 10Whoso causeth the righteous to go astray in an evil way, he shall fall himself into his own pit: but the upright shall have good things in possession.

The Apostle Paul told us something so profound and yet I see this world walking around like nothing is going on; Paul told us to work out our own salvation, with fear and trembling! Phil.2:12 we cannot wait till we get to heaven and try and defend our way of life on what someone else said was going to be ok! We must have His sure mercies over our lives or we find ourselves coming up short every time! Only those who obey His word will find eternal happiness waiting for them Jn.8:51! Just as Jesus has said; Jn.14:6Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. 7If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him. When we do things Jesus’ way we do things just like the Father wants us to do! Real simple even a child can get this theology! Disobedience goes to Hell, Righteousness and Holiness goes to be with Jesus in Heaven by obedience to His word pretty simple! Do as His Ordained Apostles have told you or find yourself in Hell! Eph.4:1I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, 2With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; 3Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 4There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; 5One Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all (Ac.10:36; Col.3:11-17; 1 Jn.5:20; 1 Cor.6:11!). 7But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. Ac.2:38Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 39For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the LORD our God shall call. 40And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation.

So are you going to be one of those who end up saying, “My God My God why have you forsaken Me?”

You will hear the Lord ask you some of these questions: How is it you could not discern the times?

How is it you thought you could come to My feast that is for My Children and not have on the proper wedding garment?

How is it you are not clothed with Righteousness and Holiness and that you are not found to be Blameless as I told you to be?

How is it you wish to speak with Me now and you know not my heavenly language, the supernatural tongue that I have given all My children for a sign?

How is it you have no testimony and cannot prophecy as all My children do?

Did I not tell you that you must be born again of the water and of the spirit, before you could enter into My Kingdom?

Did I not tell you that if you would listen to My words that you should listen to My Apostles Doctrines, teachings, which are words of life, also?

Did I not tell you that in order for you to have eternal life in peace and happiness you must abide in Me which is My word?

Did I not tell you that to live with Me forever you had to do what I told you to do?

Did I not say, “If you love Me to keep My Commandments?

Did not My Apostles who I gave instruction to, not tell you, “Everyone of you to be Baptized in My own name for the remission (forgiveness) of your sins”?

How is it that you believe man’s ways in place of My ways, which are eternal, for I change not?

Did I not give you the Holy Bible which is filled with My instructions to Heaven and life eternal?

How is it you are found with none of My life giving words in you?

Did I not tell everyone who wanted to live forever that they needed to eat of My flesh which is My Word?

Did I not say to drink of My blood and you would live forever in Me and I in you?

How is it you did not know My blood was the baptism of the Holy Spirit which is My Spirit in you and you become one with Me?

Did I not say I was the bread that came down from Heaven, that you were to eat in order to live forever with Me?

Were there never signs in the earth and in the heavens for you to know that there was a God who has allowed all this to be?

How is it you do not know I Am A God who DEMANDS OBEDIENCE, before sacrifice of continual repentances?!

Did you not know the prayers of a promiscuous and presumptuous sinner is an ABOMINATION TO ME?

Did you not know to cut your hair and to worship Me it is to be a shame to you and that your hair was to be uncut and was to be for you a covering, for it is your glory?

Is My glory for you of little or no worth to you?

Did I not tell My men children not to round the corners of their hair or their beards?

Did I not tell you to come out from among the ungodly and for you to be a holy and righteous people and I would be your God?

Did I not say in Daniel that a shame was going to be in condemnation to whoever was a shame to Me?

Have you never read the history of My people and My children that I admonished them continually for disobedience of My Law that I have written and put in their minds and on their hearts or do you even know My Commandments for your instructions?

If you do not know My ways and My Laws then how are you equipped to come back with Me in My Millennium reign and rule with a rod for Me?

Did not I chastise My own children as a good Father is supposed to do and to raise your children in the fear of the Lord; then how is it you have no fear of Me?

How is it now that I cannot allow you to come into My presence?

Why is it now that I cannot allow you to come into the Grooms Feast for His Bride who has made herself ready for Her Groom?

Did I not warn you not to give away your inheritance as that vain Esau did who even came weeping and could not receive his blessing from his father just like you today?

Did I not have My Apostle Paul warn you to work out your salvation with fear and trembling?

Why is it you are not trembling now as My servant warns you yet again?

How is it that the world does not hate you; is it because you and the world that is evil are in league together and serve the same master?

Can you answer Me these things and countless more I will have for you on the Day of your Judgment?

No you cannot, now I will finish with what you will hear in that day you stand before Me in My Day of Judgment upon you!

Mt.7:23And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Ps.5:5The foolish shall not stand in My sight: I hatest all workers of iniquity.

Ps.6:8Depart from Me, all ye workers of iniquity;

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.

Mt.10: 14And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.

15Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city. And for you who have not received My servants words I have given him! For he has spoken only of my words that I have given you before!

Mt.10:28but rather fear Me which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

Mt.11:22But I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the day of judgment, than for you. At least they repented at the words of the Lord’s prophet!  24But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee.

Mt.12:36Be ye careful how you answer yourself today and for your conscience sake disregard not my Word which is my Spirit: 37for I will hold you accountable for every idle word you speak, not only to anyone around you but to your own heart, I will hold you accountable!

Mt.13: Why should you be found bundled together with the tares and carried to My burn pile in Hell? Should not you be gathered to My barn with the rest of My wheat, who are called by My name?  49So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,

50And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

Mt.13:57How is it My prophet cannot even receive honor in his own house; have not I given him My words of truth; for you to understand which will save you from My wrath to come, and you receive him not just as you do away with My Word to you that is your eternal life to you?

Mt.13:58And I will not do mighty works for you because you have lost your faith, in Me and My words, as well as My servants!

Mt.14:31O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?

Mt.14:14Why have you listened to man’s sayings and not Mine, for they are the blind leading the blind and they both shall fall into the ditch; that is greased, that is sloped steep for all your lies to slide down into the pits of Hell, where there will be gnashing of teeth and the worm dieth not and the fire is never quenched!

Let you therefore hear what thus sayeth the Lord of hosts; For your sins I have been crucified! I did it for My own name’s sake, for how should My name and My world that I have created be polluted and My glorious name be blasphemed by not making a way for My children to escape Hell and not to have a way to My Kingdom? For I have not only given Myself to you but I have shown you in My words; how your hearts must be Sanctified, Consecrated and Purified unto Me by My own Words; that are eternal life to you!

Therefore thus sayeth the Lord: Consider you ways! Repent everyone of you and be baptized in My name; in the only name by which salvation comes; in the Holy Glorious name of Jesus Christ for I will remit your sins from you and give you the power to go and sin no more, and ye shall ask anything in My name and I shall do it for you, when you become one with Me and I with you and I give you the utterance of a heavenly tongue and you prophecy to the glories of being one with Me, for I will give you a testimony all of your own which is only for you! Then strive to enter into the straight gate on My narrow path of this life of yours and I will receive you unto My own self and I will give you a stone with a name that no one will know but you and I!

Repent while I may still be found, and receive My words and my truths and worship Me in Spirit and in Truth that I require of all My children who are called by My name and are in the midst of My Bride who has made herself ready for Me, who is without spot and without wrinkle who has strived to be found blameless for her husband; which is My Church called by My name, which I have purchased with My own blood! You are not your own I have purchased you and have paid a price that no one is able to repay, for this is My gift to you but you must seek it out for yourselves; for it is not hard to find the way to My heart, it is in my words of Life that I had written for you by my prophets of old and My servants who became My friends who are My Apostles, who I have instructed to write what I have given for them to write unto you!

I Am the same yesterday, today and I Am able to be that forever, for My words will not come back void from wince I sent them out to accomplish! I Myself have spoken and it will be done at My letting, so beware and heed My servants warning that I have had him write unto you; seek Me while I may be found in peace, and loving kindness for My longsuffering is about to come to an end, for the time is nearer now than ever before for My coming! There is not much time remaining before all things will come to pass that have been spoken of in my living Word!

Seek ye men who stay in My word without adding anything to it or without taking anything away as I have instructed; for these are truly My Ordained and Anointed! Many will come in My name but I have not sent them, they are there because they have taken their fathers roles on them by tradition and not by My Calling Them! In these last days many will come and say things that are in My word and you will find them to right according to My doctrines but they will walk far from Me and lead many into the world from wince I called you out of! They will make it hard for you not to fall in love with them and their speech, but I say unto you that they have not your best interest in mind for they are looking out for their own bellies and feeding themselves from My table and will lead many astray with doctrines that they will bring in that are not My own once they have won your favour and your trust! Even though they have many good fruits that seem to be honorable they will turn to corruption and be far from Me in the end! Many are in the world as I now speak unto you and are for your testing, for only those who know My word will be able to tell who is a deceiver, by the way I speak to you in the Spirit, you will know that they are not of Me, for if I have sent them they will only speak the truth of My written word to you! Anything less than this is an Abomination and Confusion; which I will correct in a most harsh and quick end of it will I make!

My children be patient for just a little while longer and I will come and receive you unto Myself and where I am you will be also, In My Kingdom are many mansions that you have prepared by doing what I have instructed you to do, for that is where you have chosen to place your heart and I have carried it out for those who receive My word and put them in their hearts and display them in this vile world for all to ridicule, for I have seen how the world looks upon My true children, who I have chosen to place My name! I know the trials and tribulations that you must overcome to be with Me, but your reward is far greater than anything you have seen or will see in this world you live in now! As I told you in my word be of good cheer for I have overcome this world and so must you also, for it is your trials and tribulation and is your testing grounds for purification; for If you overcome the world now you will not have to go through the times of Jacob’s troubles that are for my disobedient children who have hardened their hearts to Me and my word!

As I have told you these things that are upon you are for signs and wonders that you may see and know that the time is near for My coming; I have told you so you would know it is so; receive My word in what I have had written for you it is for your edification and admonishment to prepare you for what is to come and to know that those who have my name will have no fear in these last days for it is all in My hands and is being accomplished just as I have said it would be so that you know it is from Me! For I have told you from dispensation to dispensation what to watch for and what to do in each, for what I open no one is able to shut and what I shut no one is able to open and when I speak it will be so as if it is done already, for it is in My sight and will be in your also! Therefore take heed to My instructions, keep to My word and live! For My word is my Spirit and if you blaspheme my Spirit it will not be forgiven of you in this age or any age to come, for I change not! Therefore pray and fast that what comes upon this world will not come upon you for I have warned you by My servant; Thus sayeth the Lord; Consider your ways and your heart and make sure it is on Me and my Will for you which is My word that I have given you for your instruction! Keep thyself only unto Me and I will have you with Me forevermore; thus sayeth the Lord of host!

Lord I thank you for your words to us your children, for you know who your children are and who will heed the word you have given us today! You are so faithful to those who worship you and are thrilled to be called by your name and those who have a love for their fellow man even those who are their enemies for we know that Hell is too hot and it is forever and was made for the adversary and your fallen spirits who have left their first estate and all spirits will end up returning to you who gave it Lord; for you to judge as you judge with all righteousness; Lord I ask that we hear what thus sayeth our Lord and I ask that we put it in our hearts and keep it always before our faces as not to ever fall from it as those who are going to that despicable place called Hell because of disobedience that you have warned us about repeatedly! I thank you Lord that you have not given up on us and continue to give us answers to our prayers and that we can still have a move of your wondrous power with signs and miracles when a child who is called by your name prays in the Holy Spirit and grows in the spirit with moaning that only you know what it is that we are in need of as we intercede for our own selves and others; even those who need to come to you oh LORD our GOD Jesus Christ for we know if we ask anything in your name it will be done because we only ask for those things that are in your will for us to have! I thank you Lord for thy Holy Spirit who lets us know what it is that we really need and what is only a want or a desire, for only you know the difference of a necessity of will!

Thank you Lord for your plan of salvation that you have given to us by your Holy Anointed Ordained Apostles who told us as Peter, who did testify and exhort to us many words that you had for us to receive for our salvation when he said 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. 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.

And to your messenger to the gentiles who were really a far off but yet they were given a promise by you in the Book of Gen.12:3And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. By you who was your spirit being manifested in the flesh for our salvation and to know who you really are, are indeed really the only ones who are worshipping you in truth and in your Holy Spirit! Because of your Holy Anointed Apostle Paul who taught the gentiles the same baptism that Peter did by your Holy Spirit’s leading him into your truths Lord Jesus; when he said to the disciples of John the Baptist; have you received the Holy Spirit since ye believed? They said we have not so much as even heard there be any Holy Spirit such as these in this world today for they believe it is not for them as some preach, which is against your word Lord, and we will not err as they did my Lord; for your gifts are without repentance and all gifts from heaven above and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. So we know that the whole world lieth in wickedness and is being deceived as we study your word today; who are being led to their own destruction because they sought not their own salvation with fear and trembling! For Lord we know the act of disobedience to your word brought with it a death penalty in the lake of fire in the Old Testament as well as in the New testament; your word has not changed but is still true and heaven and earth must pass away before your word will ever change to a New Dispensational Covenant but your obedience will still always be required forever as it is today with you because you change not!

Lord my prayer is that this word you have given me will touch each and every heart that reads it and studies upon it for their edification Lord; that none should be lost as it is your will also according to your own words!

Therefore thus sayeth the Lord’s servant to you: Repent and every one of you be baptized in the only name by which salvation and all prayers are answered; in that glorious name of Jesus Christ for the Remission and forgiveness of your sins; and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit for it is a gift to you and to your children’s children and to whosoever will receive it and unto them who are a far off even to as many as our Lord Jesus Christ shall call! For their is but One Lord, One Faith which has been discussed here today, and only One Baptism that our Lord Jesus Christ has put in place for all to receive who believe in His word alone and not man’s vain traditions but according to His word we will be saved!

So if you have not been baptized according to His Will for you, you are at fault because you have listened to man instead of praying through till you received the Holy Spirit who would lead you into all these truths that are in Jesus’ word given to us by His Holy Spirit filled ordained men who put His word before their very own lives! If we speak at all let it be done as an oracle of our Lord Jesus Christ! Come while Jesus may be found while there is time; very soon now the door to heaven’s gate will be closed forever and you will find yourself outside as was talked about by Jesus Himself in;

Matthew 25

1Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. 2And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. 3They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: 4But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. 5While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. 6And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. 7Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. 8And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. 9But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. 10And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. 11Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. 12But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.

We can never let our Holy Spirit leak out we must keep it renewed daily or we will find ourselves left outside as these five virgins who were just as saved as the first five were but they left their duties undone in disobedience and will be left outside the same as you or I if we keep not only to Jesus’ Will that is His Words of Eternal Life for us who obey Him and glorify Him with our own selves serving Him just because we can’t do enough for him! Are you doing that for Him today as a loving child of God should? Repent!!!

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. Ro.14:10But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. 11For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. 12So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.

God will have the Last Word!

Is.57:21There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked.

Is.48:22There is no peace, saith the LORD, unto the wicked.

Ezek.21: 31And I will pour out mine indignation upon thee, I will blow against thee in the fire of my wrath, and deliver thee into the hand of brutish men, and skilful to destroy. 32Thou shalt be for fuel to the fire; thy blood shall be in the midst of the land; thou shalt be no more remembered: for I the LORD have spoken it.

Ezek.22:30And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none. 31Therefore have I poured out mine indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath: their own way have I recompensed upon their heads, saith the Lord GOD.

Ro.6:23For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our LORD. The Lord will show you the way, 1 Cor.2:9-16!

Let us not Lean unto Our Own Understanding

Let us not Lean unto Our Own Understanding

By Rev. G. L. Boyett

4/7/2015

From Proverbs chapter 3:1 My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments:

For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee.

Let not mercy (Grace see Ac.20:24 and verse 32 here as well!) and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart:

So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding!

In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil.

It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.

Honour the Lord with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase:

10 So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.

11 My son, despise not the chastening of the Lord; neither be weary of his correction:

12 For whom the Lord loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.

13 Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.

14 For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold.

15 She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her.

16 Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour.

17 Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.

18 She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.

19 The Lord by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens.

20 By his knowledge the depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down the dew.

21 My son, let not them depart from thine eyes: keep sound wisdom and discretion:

22 So shall they be life unto thy soul, and grace to thy neck.

23 Then shalt thou walk in thy way safely, and thy foot shall not stumble.

24 When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.

25 Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh.

26 For the Lord shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken.

27 Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it.

28 Say not unto thy neighbour, Go, and come again, and tomorrow I will give; when thou hast it by thee.

29 Devise not evil against thy neighbour, seeing he dwelleth securely by thee.

30 Strive not with a man without cause, if he have done thee no harm.

31 Envy thou not the oppressor, and choose none of his ways.

32 For the froward is abomination to the Lord: but his secret is with the righteous! (See Mt.6:33 and 7:7-8)

33 The curse of the Lord is in the house of the wicked: but he blesseth the habitation of the just.

34 Surely he scorneth the scorners: but he giveth grace unto the lowly.

35 The wise shall inherit glory: but shame shall be the promotion of fools.

How long will it take humanity to learn that they lie in wickedness, 1 Jn.5:19 And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness! Unless we are really Born-Again His way, the Lord God Almighties’ Way seen in Jn.1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

This too can be seen only in Jesus’ words to us as seen once again in Jn.3:Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

Nicodemus 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?

Jesus 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.

That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

The 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.

One Truth, God’s Word to us; and everything else is a lie!

God cannot lie, Num.11:23 And the Lord said unto Moses, Is the Lord’s hand waxed short? Thou shalt see now whether my word shall come to pass unto thee or not.

Num.23:19 God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? Or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

1 Sam.15:29 And also the Strength of Israel will not lie nor repent: for he is not a man, that he should repent.

1 Kin.8: 56 Blessed be the Lord, that hath given rest unto his people Israel, according to all that he promised: there hath not failed one word of all his good promise, which he promised by the hand of Moses his servant.

Mal.3:For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed. (Mal.3:16-18 as well!)

Jn.1:17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.

Jms.1:16 Do not err, my beloved brethren.

17 Every 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.

Tit.1:In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;

Heb.6:17 Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath:

18 That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us:

We have received the mysteries that were from the foundation of time, which is the very mind of our God; that is only found in His words to us, located in His Holy Bible; therefore for these reasons we would be fools to depart from one word that has proceeded out of His mouth to us, Mt.4:But 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. And Lk.4:And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God. From Deu.8:And thou shalt remember all the way which the Lord thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no.

And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the Lord doth man live.

He has given us His words to us by His Holy men, the Prophets of God, who spoke as they were moved by the His very own Spirit in them, 2 Pt.1:19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:

20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

21 For 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.

We see and find out who this Spirit is when we look to scripture, for God is a Spirit, Jn.4:24, that is seen to fill Jesus without measure, Jn.3:31 He 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.

32 And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth; and no man receiveth his testimony.

33 He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true.

34 For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.

35 The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand.

36 He 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.

We again see this same Spirit in action talking to a prophet of His 530 or so years before the very fact of His death of the flesh He would inhabit for our Salvation, Zech.12:10 And 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 is why Peter talked about Jesus Christ, when he said that by Jesus the men of old learned of salvation that is the mystery that was spoken of before the foundation of the earth was formed, that was revealed of the suffering of the saviour of the world that was to come from God alone, see in 1 Pt.1:Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.

10 Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you:

11 Searching 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.

12 Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.

This too is what John the Baptist did as a Spiritual Elijah, he made a way for the Lord God to come and deliver Salvation to the world through Himself as the only sinless offering with a pure blood, that can only by His blood cleanse the whole world of its sin, that was still foretold by the Holy Prophets of old! Refer to Is.40:1 Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God.

Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she hath received of the Lord’s hand double for all her sins.

The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.

Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:

And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it. Is this not what John the Baptist did, make a way for introduction of the glorious God our Immanuel, Mt.1:23, who is God with us, that came to redeem Himself a people who are called by His name? Sure it is, Look to scripture yet again; Lk.24:47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. For what reason were we to do this? For the remission of all our sins, to be found justified before Him who is Holy, Rev.4:8 (See 1 Cor.6:11)!

We need to be washed in the water of baptism in the only name by which all salvation comes, Ac.4:12 that is why the Apostles only baptized in that one name, for those who are buried in Christ Jesus, will surely be raised to Him in the calling or snatching away, by His Holy Spirit’s power being in us and attached to our living souls, the power of the Highest, Lk.1:35, is the Holy Spirit that is God, manifested in the flesh, 1 Tm.3:14 These things write I unto thee, hoping to come unto thee shortly:

15 But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.

16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

The only truths given to us by the Holy Spirit who is the Spirit of Truth, that is only found in His Holy Bible, written to us by His Ordained Apostles; and if we will keep His words, Jn.14:15, we too will keep His Holy Words to us by His Holy Ordained Apostles, Jn.15:20! For only they had power to loosen and to bind on earth and in heaven because they knew the very mind of God because they were taught by Him alone! They knew all too well what they were allowed to bind and to loosen, and it has nothing to do with today’s modern theologians! For we are not to add one word to this Holy Bible Deu.4:1 Now therefore hearken, O Israel, unto the statutes and unto the judgments, which I teach you, for to do them, that ye may live, and go in and possess the land which the Lord God of your fathers giveth you.

Ye 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.

Deu.5:29 O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children forever!

30 Go say to them, Get you into your tents again.

31 But as for thee, stand thou here by me, and I will speak unto thee all the commandments, and the statutes, and the judgments, which thou shalt teach them, that they may do them in the land which I give them to possess it.

32 Ye shall observe to do therefore as the Lord your God hath commanded you: ye shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the left.

33 Ye shall walk in all the ways which the Lord your God hath commanded you, that ye may live, and that it may be well with you, and that ye may prolong your days in the land which ye shall possess.

Addressed to Kings and rulers of the people!

Deu.17: 18 And it shall be, when he sitteth upon the throne of his kingdom, that he shall write him a copy of this law in a book out of that which is before the priests the Levites:

19 And it shall be with him, and he shall read therein all the days of his life: that he may learn to fear the Lord his God, to keep all the words of this law and these statutes, to do them:

20 That his heart be not lifted up above his brethren, and that he turn not aside from the commandment, to the right hand, or to the left: to the end that he may prolong his days in his kingdom, he, and his children, in the midst of Israel.

Keep all His Commandments, go not to the right hand or the left!

Deu.12:32 What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it.

Deu.13:18 When thou shalt hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, to keep all his commandments which I command thee this day, to do that which is right in the eyes of the Lord thy God.

Josh.1:Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper withersoever thou goest.

Prov.4:20 My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.

21 Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.

22 For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.

23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.

24 Put away from thee a froward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee.

25 Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee.

26 Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established.

27 Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.

Prov.30:Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.

Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

God changes not and His very words to us carry over even unto the New Testament:

Let us look to the New Testament and see where this same train of thought carries forth, and I need not go any further that Jesus himself, for He always did that which pleased the Father; see Jn.8:28 Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I Am He, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things. (See Jn.10:30 and 12:45)

29 And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.

30 As he spake these words, many believed on him.

31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;

32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

33 They answered him, We be Abraham’s seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?

34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.

35 And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.

36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

For us to be found free indeed, we had better hold onto His Truths that are only seen in His Holy Bible, for us to be found Holy as He is Holy, we too have to be found living and abiding in His every word to us, Jn.15: I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.

Every 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.

Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. (Only if we obey Him and His words to us, 2 Pt.2:1-22 & 1 Pt.4:14-19!)

Abide 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.

I 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.

If 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.

If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.

As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.

10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.

11 These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.

We cannot be full unless we are full of His Holy Spirit that only comes when we too have been regenerated in that Love, that is only found in His will for all of us, that can only be seen in His words of Truth, that is only found in the scriptures of the prophets, Jesus and His Apostles, for they were given the mysteries that are revealed in the scriptures and brought forth into the New Testament, that still are carried forth to the New as well as the Old, God changes not, Mal.3:6, seen in Heb.13:8-9, for, many will come and misrepresent Paul’s teachings to us, with their vail theologies, just as Peter said they would to their own destruction, 2 Pt.3:16!

We are not to add to this word or leave one thing left undone; and we cannot know these things unless His Holy Spirit is confirmed to be in us with gifts of the same Spirit, revealed in us by His very words to us, Jn.14:26, that will lead us into His mysteries as well and give to us a right mind, to know Him and His voice as well as hear His words, Jn.8:47, for only the children of God will hear His words to them and do them, all of them, Rev.22:And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done.

Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.

And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things.

Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.

10 And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.

11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.

12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.

13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.

14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.

17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

18 For 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:

19 And 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.

20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

How can the world today be pleasing to God, when they have not carried forth His own words or the apostle’s teachings? They can’t or they too would show evidences of living a changed lifestyle of repentance, as they were told to do, Ac.26:19 Whereupon, O king Agrippa, I was not disobedient unto the heavenly vision:

20 But 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.

To have works worthy of repentance is to understand the words of God and to do them, all of them, in order to be found perfect in His eyes, to be Holy and without Blemish, Eph.5:27 seen in 2 Tm.3: 14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;

15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

These good works are only found in His Truths to us that is found in His very mind, which was manifested in the flesh of Jesus Christ 1 Cor.1:24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. Without His Holy Spirit in us that is confirmed to be in us by speaking in tongues as seen in Ac.2:1-4, that was in a normal language of this world and understandable to the people of this world, we too can be found to have confirmation of the Spirit revealing Himself to us in a right manor, for we are to test the spirits to see from where they originate, 1 Jn.4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world; we are not to come behind in any of the gifts of the Holy Spirit, 1 Cor.1:1 Paul called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, and Sosthenes our brother,

Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both their’s and our’s:

Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ;

That in everything ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge;

Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you:

So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ:

Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. If we continue to walk in all the words of the Lord to us, not being deceived by many who say these gifts are not for us today, due to their lack of faith and not being filled with His True Holy Spirit but have received the spirit and ruler of this world the prince of the air and have been given over to a strong delusion already!

If we do not believe that Jesus is the One True God, 1 Jn.5:20; that is clearly seen in all the scriptures that are about Him alone, Jn.5:39-44, that cometh from God alone! We then cannot be actually worshipping in Spirit and in Truth can we, which is required in Jn.4:23-24?!

We see that when the day of Pentecost was fully come, there was a sound of a mighty wind, that went all through the house they were staying in, and the Spirit rested on all of them and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and they all spoke with other tongues as the Spirit gave them the utterance, there were at least 120 in that upper room. When they went outside and it was noised about, all the people that heard them said what meaneth this (See Ac.2:16-ffs), for they all heard them speaking in their own native languages. Only 16 are mentioned here but there were many more represented here that are not spoken of that are listed in the other countries and areas, that heard them as well, plus those who had no idea what they were speaking but know this for a surety, that God doesn’t do anything that will cause confusion! For confusion to the Lord our God is an abomination, and that thing is not to be tolerated in His House, that is called by His name! We are not and never will be told that these things are not for us today, for the gifts of the Spirit are the only thing we are to covet 1 Cor.12:1 Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant.

Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led.

Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.

Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.

And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.

And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.

But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.

For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;

To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;

10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:

11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.

12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.

13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.

14 For the body is not one member, but many.

15 If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?

16 And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?

17 If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling?

18 But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.

19 And if they were all one member, where were the body?

20 But now are they many members, yet but one body.

21 And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you.

22 Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary:

23 And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness.

24 For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked.

25 That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another.

26 And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.

27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.

28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.

29 Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles?

30 Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? (Yes but not all have the gift of multiple tongues as Paul did!) do all interpret?

31 But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way. Which Paul did in the very next chapter, he showed us that the true Love of God that is only found at the regeneration of His Holy Spirit in us the power to live an overcoming lifestyle that can only be found when He comes to live in us to show us the only right way in which we are to go and not to depart from it! Mt.7:1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.

For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?

Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.

Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: (By doing this Mt.6:33, without Holiness and Righteousness that is found only in God’s words to us, Mt.5:17-20, can we too be found as His overcomers seen in Revelation chapter 2 and 3 and be found rewarded as they are going to be in the restitution of all things! For we too will be rewarded for our works, which are found to be righteous, holy, and blameless! Mt.5:48, Eph.5:27, Heb.12:14!)

For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?

10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?

11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

12 Therefore 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.

13 Enter 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:

14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

Why will there be few that find it? Well one reason is this Jesus said it for one, and He is the Spirit of all Prophecy, Rev.19:10, and that is how we too can have the same gifting, that only comes from Him alone, when we know His words to us and our words line up with His words exactly, then you know that is a true prophet of God! For this is the best gift for the edifying of the whole congregation! Which also comes from true interpretations of the gifts of tongues, which only comes from God alone, if and only if, that word lines up with the topic that was being discussed, and is on the same teachings that have already been brought forth by the Prophet of old and or Jesus Himself or one of His Apostles! It must only remain in that area, that is and has already been proven in the word of God! It will never not agree with the Holy Bible or be of a new revelation!

Anytime any so called man of God drifts from the word of God he then becomes in error, for God is always true and man a liar, Ro.3:1 What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit is there of circumcision?

Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oracles of God.

For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?

God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.

But if our unrighteousness commend the righteousness of God, what shall we say? Is God unrighteous who taketh vengeance? (I speak as a man)

God forbid: for then how shall God judge the world?

For if the truth of God hath more abounded through my lie unto his glory; why yet am I also judged as a sinner?

We too will be judged a sinner, that is why we are not to take on a teacher’s role, unless we have been truly called for that office, Jms.3:1 My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation.

For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body. A true man of God will have mortified his flesh and covet only the true word of God and help his weaker brothers to find that truth, 2 Tm.2:19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let everyone that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.

20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour.

21 If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.

22 Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

23 But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes.

24 And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient,

25 In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;

26 And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.

This too is seen in Gal.6:1; Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.

Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.

For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.

But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.

For every man shall bear his own burden.

Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things.

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.

That is still carried further by James, Jms.5:19 Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him;

20 Let 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 too can only be done when you have a pure heart, which will remove all sin, by walking in the word of God’s Truths: Prov.10:Blessings are upon the head of the just: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.

The memory of the just is blessed: but the name of the wicked shall rot.

The wise in heart will receive commandments: but a prating fool shall fall.

He that walketh uprightly walketh surely: but he that perverteth his ways shall be known.

10 He that winketh with the eye causeth sorrow: but a prating fool shall fall.

11 The mouth of a righteous man is a well of life: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.

12 Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins.

13 In the lips of him that hath understanding wisdom is found: but a rod is for the back of him that is void of understanding.

14 Wise men lay-up knowledge: but the mouth of the foolish is near destruction.

Seen also in the New Testament as well: 1 Pt.4:1 Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin;

That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.

For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries:

Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you:

Who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the quick and the dead.

For this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.

But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.

And above all things have fervent charity (LOVE) among yourselves: for charity (LOVE) shall cover the multitude of sins. (The kind of LOVE that cometh from above, from God alone!)

Use hospitality one to another without grudging.

10 As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. (Who God calls and confirms with gifts of His Spirit, He equips for His service!)

11 If 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 for ever and ever. Amen.

True Salvation Cometh From hearing and doing what has been told us to do, by Him who lies not!

We cannot have salvation without faith, for it is impossible to please God without faith, Heb.11:But 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.

How can we have faith? By not only believing in His words to us, by the hearing of a Preacher that will not leave the word of God, Gal.1:1 Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead.)

And all the brethren which are with me, unto the churches of Galatia:

Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ,

Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:

To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:

Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.

But 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.

As 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. Or that preacher will be found accursed, even if he leaves one thing left out and he cannot add one thing to that which has been brought forth by the apostles, prophets, and Jesus Himself or they will be held accountable to God Himself! Ro.2:Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?

But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God;

Who will render to every man according to his deeds:

To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life:

But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath,

Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile;

10 But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile:

11 For there is no respect of persons with God.

We actually can be found walking in our faith when we are found to be holding to the word of God in our lives, and not leaning to our own understandings that are of the world, that we were supposed to have come out from among those who are unclean, Ac.2:40! 2 Cor.6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

16 And 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.

17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.

18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

We were supposed to have been bought with the very blood of God, 1 Cor.3:For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.

10 According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise master builder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.

11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;

13 Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is.

14 If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.

15 If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.

16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

18 Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.

19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.

20 And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.

21 Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours;

22 Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours;

23 And ye are Christ’s; and Christ is God’s.

We are not our own any longer; 1 Cor.6:17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.

18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. (Fornication doesn’t have to be sexual either, you can make an idol out of worshipping a god that is not real that is no god at all but what is made up by Satan’s ministers of light, see 1 Jn.5:21!)

19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

2For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s!

See also 2 Pt.2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.

And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;

And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;

And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;

And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:

(For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)

The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the Day of Judgment to be punished:

10 But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, self-willed, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.

11 Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord.

12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;

13 And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceiving’s while they feast with you;

14 Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children:

15 Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;

16 But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man’s voice forbad the madness of the prophet.

17 These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.

18 For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error.

19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.

20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.

21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.

22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.

There is no thing as once saved always saved even Paul said we all have to run our own race and finish it well, to be found a true Overcomer of the flesh, by walking in the Holy Spirit for only the righteous scarcely are saved, 1 Pt.4:1 Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin;

That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.

For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries:

Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you:

Who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the quick and the dead.

For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.

But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.

And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.

Use hospitality one to another without grudging.

10 As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.

11 If 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 for ever and ever. Amen.

12 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:

13 But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.

14 If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.

15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men’s matters.

16 Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.

17 For 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?

18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?

19 Wherefore 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!

We can only do that when we too are found walking in His words of Righteousness, that is His mind and will for all those whom He has called from the foundation of creation! For the Lord knows who He has called, for only they will hold fast to every word out of His mouth, Mt.4:4 seen in Jn.8:51, to those who will hear Him and do all that He has said to do, they alone will not taste death but eternal life with Him!

Salvation cometh from Jesus Christ Himself by His Spirit in you, when you know who He is!

Mt.11:27 & Jn.6:44-47

Jn.14: Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

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

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

Jesus 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?

10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

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

12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

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

15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.

16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

17 Even 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.

18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you!

Jesus is the Spirit of Grace and Truth, who cannot lie, and every word that proceedeth out of His mouth cannot come back void from that which it was intended to do, Is.55:Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:

Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.

For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:

11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

Then and only then can we too be partakers of all His promises, such as these that are found in the remaining verse here: 12 For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.

13 Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the Lord for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.

This is the evidences of being truly borne again His way, not by traditions of man’s dogma and by his rituals of sprinkling and reciting Mt.28:19 over you instead of doing what that verse said to do as told and seen in Lk.24:47, to baptize in the only name by which salvation comes, Ac.4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. If we are to ask for everything in Jesus’ name Jn.14:14, then one thing is for sure, we had better ask for salvation and remission of our sins, in that name who died for them as seen in and done the Day of Pentecost, which is the day of the barley harvest, the fiftieth day after Passover, the Day of Atonement, the Day the Passover lamb of God was slain for our sins, and the blood was applied to our souls as it was to the door posts and to the lintel and never to the threshold, for we are never to walk through the sacred blood of God and that is exactly what people do when they disobey His words to them! They walk according to their own understandings and will perish in their presumptuous sin, Mt.12: 30 He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.

31 Wherefore 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.

32 And 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.

How many of us are really working in His fields of harvest? Mk.8:34 And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

35 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it.

36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?

37 Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

38 Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.

How many of us really have been baptized in Jesus’ name? As seen the first time it was ever done when the Church of the Living God was birthed and we became living members of the Bride of Christ His way! That is seen only in our Lords Word to us, Ac.2:37 Now 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?

38 Then 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.

39 For 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.

40 And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation.

41 Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.

42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

The true Church of the Living God abided in the word of God to them and His Apostles doctrines and departed not from them or they too will perish with all who do the same: Who live not according to the Words of the Holy Spirit to us; Is.28:Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts.

10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:

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

12 To 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.

These are they who will not hear; Is.28:13 But 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!

They heed not the real word of God but listen to every T. V. evangelist that comes down the pike who has a new doctrine, which scratches those who have itching ears! That teach they can walk any old way they want because they are under grace, well if they were really under God’s divine Grace, they too would be seen walking according to the Holy Spirit and His words to us in word and indeed! They too will be seen in one of these as called out in Mt.7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

21 Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

22 Many 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?

23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Only those who are found to build their house on the real Rock can survive the storm that is about to come upon the whole world, Mt.7:24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:

27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:

29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

All because we learned not to lean on our own understanding but built our eternal homes on God’s word to us who cannot lie! Why then do we rely on men instead of the only word that brings eternal life to us (Jn.6:63) when we keep His saying to us, Jn.14:15, Mt.4:4 all of them, not just the ones we want to keep?!

The way of salvation is very simple and is covered in one place for all mankind to find and that is seen when about 3000 souls came into the Church of Jesus Christ, Ac.2:38-40! This one passage is all we will ever need to be baptized with assurance of receiving the confirmation of the Holy Spirit seen in 1 Cor.6:11, to be found justified in God’s own eyes!

You can believe all day long (Jms.2:19) but until you step out in faith as seen in Ac.10:1 There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of the band called the Italian band,

A devout man, and one that feared God with all his house, which gave much alms to the people, and prayed to God alway.

He saw in a vision evidently about the ninth hour of the day an angel of God coming in to him, and saying unto him, Cornelius.

And when he looked on him, he was afraid, and said, What is it, Lord? And he said unto him, Thy prayers and thine alms are come up for a memorial before God.

And now send men to Joppa, and call for one Simon, whose surname is Peter:

He lodgeth with one Simon a tanner, whose house is by the sea side: he shall tell thee what thou oughtest to do.

And when the angel which spake unto Cornelius was departed, he called two of his household servants, and a devout soldier of them that waited on him continually;

And when he had declared all these things unto them, he sent them to Joppa.

On the morrow, as they went on their journey, and drew nigh unto the city, Peter went up upon the housetop to pray about the sixth hour:

10 And he became very hungry, and would have eaten: but while they made ready, he fell into a trance,

11 And saw heaven opened, and a certain vessel descending upon him, as it had been a great sheet knit at the four corners, and let down to the earth:

12 Wherein were all manner of four footed beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air.

13 And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter; kill, and eat.

14 But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten anything that is common or unclean.

15 And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common.

16 This was done thrice: and the vessel was received up again into heaven.

17 Now while Peter doubted in himself what this vision which he had seen should mean, behold, the men which were sent from Cornelius had made enquiry for Simon’s house, and stood before the gate,

18 And called, and asked whether Simon, which was surnamed Peter, were lodged there.

19 While Peter thought on the vision, the Spirit said unto him, Behold, three men seek thee.

20 Arise therefore, and get thee down, and go with them, doubting nothing: for I have sent them.

21 Then Peter went down to the men which were sent unto him from Cornelius; and said, Behold, I am he whom ye seek: what is the cause wherefore ye are come?

22 And they said, Cornelius the centurion, a just man, and one that feareth God, and of good report among all the nation of the Jews, was warned from God by an holy angel to send for thee into his house, and to hear words of thee.

23 Then called he them in, and lodged them. And on the morrow Peter went away with them, and certain brethren from Joppa accompanied him.

24 And the morrow after they entered into Caesarea. And Cornelius waited for them, and he had called together his kinsmen and near friends.

25 And as Peter was coming in, Cornelius met him, and fell down at his feet, and worshipped him.

26 But Peter took him up, saying, Stand up; I myself also am a man.

27 And as he talked with him, he went in, and found many that were come together.

28 And he said unto them, Ye know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew to keep company, or come unto one of another nation; but God hath shewed me that I should not call any man common or unclean.

29 Therefore came I unto you without gainsaying, as soon as I was sent for: I ask therefore for what intent ye have sent for me?

30 And Cornelius said, Four days ago I was fasting until this hour; and at the ninth hour I prayed in my house, and, behold, a man stood before me in bright clothing,

31 And said, Cornelius, thy prayer is heard, and thine alms are had in remembrance in the sight of God.

32 Send 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.

33 Immediately 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.

34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:

35 But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.

36 The word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all:)

37 That word, I say, ye know, which was published throughout all Judaea, and began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached;

38 How 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.

39 And 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:

40 Him God raised up the third day, and shewed him openly;

41 Not 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.

42 And 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.

43 To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.

44 While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word.

45 And 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.

46 For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then answered Peter,

47 Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we?

48 And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days.

The day the first gentile was received into the bride of Christ Jesus because they heard Cornelius and his household speak in other tongues the same as they had received, that verified they too have received the grace of God, Ac.11:1-18, therefore the council held their tongues and gave glory to God for His great works among the gentiles of the uncircumcised! For our Great God is not a respecter of persons and neither are His children, for each man will be held accountable for his own salvation, that is why we must work it out with fear and trembling, Phil.2:12, for every knee will bow before our Great God who has brought us salvation, Tit.2:10 Not purloining, but shewing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things.

11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,

12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;

13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;

14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

15 These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.

Tit.3:1 Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work,

To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men.

For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.

But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared,

Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;

Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour;

That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men.

But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.

10 A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject;

11 Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.

This too we are to carry out in our churches as well! Only they who have committed their lives to His word and His work, Jn.4:34 Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.

35 Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.

36 And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.

37 And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth.

38 I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours. Is that what we too are doing with what remains of this short lifetime of ours? If not, you too will face His wrath to come, that will upon all who keep not His every word to them!

In closing

Be ye every one of you baptized in the only name by which salvation comes in and that is found only in the word of God, in Jesus’ own name, the one who died for our sins! For only God can forgive sins, that right there shows you who Jesus was in the flesh! Only He can forgive your sins and His blood alone can cover all past sins, and His Holy Spirit will lead you into all His Truths, which are mere mysteries to all them who are outside the covenant of the Bride of Christ!
