Every Idle Word We Speak, We Will Give An Answer For!

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.

 

Mt.12:36 But I say unto you: That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the Day of Judgment!

37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned!

See Jn.12:46 I am come a Light into the world, that whosoever believeth on Me should not abide in darkness.

47 And if any man hear My words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.

48 He that rejecteth Me, and receiveth not My words, hath One that judgeth him: the Word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the Last Day!

 49 For I have not spoken of Myself; but the Father (Holy Spirit Mt.1:18, 20 & 23; Lk.1:35 and 37!) which sent Me, He gave Me a Commandment (a Decree, a Royal Sacred Word, Even Dogma!), what I should say, and what I should speak!

50 And I know that His Commandment is Life Everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto Me (His Body, His Vessel Rev.19:10, Jesus is the Grace & Truth, the Holy Word of God in the Flesh, Jn.1:1-18.), so I speak!

You see Jesus and the Father the Holy Spirit are One in the same, Jn.10:30 as seen in Jn.12:45, the I Am manifested in the Daylight of Humanity Jn.1:1-18 & 1 Tm.3:16 explains all of this very well, if we will just receive it in its simplicity!

The Lord will not be mocked, 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.

2 Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the LAW OF CHRIST!

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

4 But Let Every Man Prove His Own Work (Phil.2:12), and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.

5 For every man shall bear his own burden! We cannot have someone else stand before our God in judgment for us we must stand on our own merits of repentance, baptism, and infilling of the Holy Spirit as required in Jn.3:3-8, to be found justified in the minimum required of us to do, to make ourselves ready for Him to be able to live inside of us: So we can be His Holy Temples, 1 Cor.3:1-ff, 1 Cor.6:1-ff & 2 Cor.6:14-18 as well.

6 Let Him (Is.54:13; Jer.31:31-34; Heb.8:8-13, see Jn.14:18 & 26; Jn.15:20 & 26, Jn.16:13 etc. such as Is.28:9-12 or you will end up as all those being taught by men as seen in verse 13-ffs!), that is taught in the Word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things. (Same as on verse 10).

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

8 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. (See Gal.5:1-ffs & Ro.8:1-ffs).

9 And let us not be weary in well-doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. (This is talking about a reaping of a harvest of the Gospel that is to be sown by us, so we can reap some 30, some 60 and some 100 fold!). See this link: http://biblehub.com/interlinear/galatians/6.htm,

10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good, (Be perfect 18 agathós – inherently (intrinsically) good; as to the believer, 18(agathós) describes what originates from God and is empowered by Him in their life, through faith.) unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.  (not everyone is eligible in this class of people, just as this word was used for blood kin or of another classification these went through Ac.2:1-47! http://biblehub.com/greek/3609.htm).

Joel said in the Last Days that the Lord will pour out His Spirit (Jn.14:18 see all of Jn.17:1-27 so we all could be one of the same type, God Breathed, Jn.1:12-13 seen in Ac.2:1-47 having done all to stand before our Maker on that day 1 Pt.4:17-19!), upon all flesh, and then they too will have to decide whom they will serve, Ro.6:16 Know 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?

Your works do follow you (Rev.14:13 many verses are attached to this one verse in my Thomson Nelson Student Study Bible for studying, these concepts further on out!), clear unto death by which you will be judged by every idle word you have spoken Mt.12:36-37, for the very word of God will judge us all, Jn.12:48-50: How will your word match up to the Almighty’s Ro.3:-ffs? Or will you be found lacking and worse yet no better than a LIAR? Are you living in the will of God which is His words of Righteousness and our Holiness is the obedience to them all:  (http://biblehub.com/interlinear/2_timothy/3.htm).

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! (http://biblehub.com/interlinear/2_timothy/3-17.htm).

We have all been called unto repentance (http://biblehub.net/searchstrongs.php?q=Repentance), first before anything, we are to have turned and gotten right with God, and gone a new and a better way, for we were once sinners, now we are called to be of a right mind, to be the Light of the world (Mt.5:14-16)! To have been turned a new direction, as Jesus Himself told the adulteress that was thrown down at His feet; He told her to go and sin no more; just as the cripple at the pool of Bethesda;

Jn.5:1 After this there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

2 Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches.

3 In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water.

4 For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.

5 And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.

6 When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, He saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?

7 The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.

8 Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.

9 And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the Sabbath.

10 The Jews therefore said unto him that was cured: It is the Sabbath day: it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed.

11 He answered them, He that made me whole, the same said unto me, Take up thy bed, and walk.

12 Then asked they him: What man is that which said unto thee, Take up thy bed, and walk?

13 And he that was healed wist not who it was: for Jesus had conveyed himself away, a multitude being in that place.

14 Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee!

15 The man departed, and told the Jews that it was Jesus, which had made him whole.

16 And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the Sabbath day.

17 But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.

18 Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill Him, because He not only had broken the Sabbath, but said also that God was His Father, making Himself equal with God! See Lk.1:35 God the power of the Highest is God and that is what Jesus is full of, without measure, manifested (Miraculously http://biblehub.net/searchstrongs.php?q=miraculous) in the flesh of Mary’s seed, under the Law, see Mt.5:17-20! That is what we have to work with just like Jesus did, His own words to us, Jn.14:6 now go and do all that I have said to do (See Mt.21:21-22; Mt.6:33 & 7:7-8 and believe.)!

Unless we know that it is possible, to go and sin no more by walking in God’s Truths; and follow after all that our God with us said to do, for it is by His words alone that cleanse us, only when we keep His promises to us (Jn.15:3; Mt.6:33 & 7:7-8), that are His individual words put into sentences, that make up His eternal will for us to go and be found PERFECT as He is perfect Mt.5:48; for they who have a pure Heart are they that live all these words given to them by His Holy Spirit Mt.5:8, who had them all written 2 Pt.1:19-21, all scripture is God breathed and written upon our hearts and always on our minds (1 Cor.2:1-16), that is how you have the Mind of Jesus, Jn.14:6, walking as he walked with us!

Jn.16:12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now!

13 Howbeit when He, the Spirit of Truth (See Jn.1:17, Jesus is the Spirit of Truth Jn.14:18 & 26; 15:26.), is come, He will guide you into all truth: for He shall not speak of Himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak Mt.10:20: and He will shew you things to come Rev.19:10 Jesus is that Spirit of Prophecy see Is.55:1-13 and Zech.12:10; 530 years before the actual fact the Spirit tells Zechariah that they will look upon Me whom they will pierce! Not Him but Me, whom they will pierce in the cross at Calvary (Jn.19:37)!

14 He shall glorify me: for He shall receive of Mine, and shall shew it unto you Is.54:13 Jer.31:31-34 and Heb.8:8-13!

15 All things that the Father hath are Mine (See Jn.14:7-9; Mt.28:18 etc.): therefore said I, that He shall take of Mine, and shall shew it unto you (Mt.28:18, Jn.10:30 & 12:45!). Because the Father is in Jesus (Lk.1:35), without measure, God is a Spirit Jn.4:24, we are all called to be Holy as He is Holy (Rev.4:8; 1 Pt.1:13-16; Ex.19:6 etc.), and Jesus has that very same Spirit in Him without measure Jn.3:34, for the words that come down from above are from Him who is from above (Jn.3:13, 31-34 & Jn.6:62 see Jn.5:39-44, that are of God alone!), which is Jesus Himself the I Am that was before Abraham Jn.8:58, and unless we know Jesus in this Truth by His Spirit, meaning Supernatural Spirit, that is all-powerful and in us, there is nothing He or The True Saints of God cannot do (See Lk.1:37 & Heb.6:1-12). Unless we know Jesus and His very own Spirit that is being poured out upon all flesh in these last days in this way as seen in Ac.2:1-4, we have not been converted, regenerated, transformed, or born again at all!

Without His Holy Spirit there is no justification 1 Cor.6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. (Jn.3:3-8 mandatory see Ro.8:9, it is a MUST do, the same as Ac.4:12 and 2:38-40-ffs as well. It takes all scripture living in us to have His mind and His Spirit, which is His Word and Will for all of us to live in and by! Mt12:30-32 & 46-50).

Without the Holy Spirit who breathed all the Sacred Words of God (His Grace and Favour) to mankind helping us to know exactly what He wanted us to know, there cannot be perfect truth in us because first we have not the Spirit manifested in us to teach us the way, the truth, and the life we are to go, and without the Holy Spirit we cannot enter into Heavenly realms either, without the supernatural power of the Almighty God being in us (Eph.1:1-14).

See Ro.8:8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit (If you are truly a Saint of God Born Again! That is who all the Epistles are written too, those who have had the Ac.2:1-4 experience! See Ac.11:1-18 for the councils confirmation being given that God has truly given the gift of Salvation to the Gentiles who spoke in tongues, Ac.10:44-48 and were baptized in Jesus’ mighty name Ac.4:12, for it is required of us to do it that way by Jesus Himself Lk.24:47!), if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of His!

Unless we worship the Lord first by knowing who Jesus is as the I Am, Jn.8:24, there is no salvation because there is still no truth in us, which is mandatory, it is required of us, to be found perfect without Spot or Wrinkle, to be Holy means to have done all to stand before our Lord with all being done that was required of us by Him and His words to us; so we too can be found perfect and without blemish, Eph.5:27, Phil.2:12 & 2 Tm.2:19-22-26 & Mk.8:34-38! This is no problem when the Almighty lives in you (Is.9:6-7) but impossible if He does not!

No one can fake it to heaven and into heavenly realms, read Jn.10:1-ffs, this is what Jesus was talking about those who try to climb into the sheepfold another way, very much like all those wanna be preachers and teachers who preach and teach to those itching ears; here is what they will be saying on that day when the Lord comes to give everyone a chance to give an account of themselves on judgment day (1 Pt.4:17-19), here is what all the televangelist will be saying on that day seen 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? (Do they still look like all the word or have they made a change in their lives and come out of the unclean one, Jms.4:1-ffs! If we remain as the word where is the repentance and the proof of it, Ac.26:19-20 we are to prove all things, 1 Thes.5:1-28, we are to not even have an appearance of the world that is still in its wickedness 1 Jn.5:19, in us! See 1 Jn.5:18, we are to be without sin in our lives, when we live in the Spirit we are law setters, we establish the Law Ro.3:31 see Ro.7:25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin. We keep our flesh in subjection to the law of sin to make sure we do not sin, for the law is the bare minimum that the flesh must abide in but if we are being led by the Holy Spirit we will be above the law of the flesh and of the Spirit which is a higher standard of our God’s own Will for us to live as Holy beings made in his likeness! Remember we have been buried with Christ Jesus and are dead to sin of this world, but we are to mortify this flesh that wars against the Holy Spirit too, Gal.5:17 and 1 Cor.6:12, see Ro.8:13 & being an Overcomer in Revelation chapter 2 & 3: http://biblehub.com/1_corinthians/6-12.htm).

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. (See Jn.15:1-ffs).

20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. (We have to have fruits and works that bear witness of our conversion and regeneration of repentance Ac.26:19-20 and further like verses if one wants to find them they are there to be found!)

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! (See Jn.3:13 as well Jesus is Omnipresent as well as Jn.6:62)!

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!

They will be those who say those words seen in Ps.22:1 My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? Those same words Jesus spoke on the cross were a prophetic warning to all those who would think to lead others astray for mere monetary gains in the world of Preaching and Teaching the Truth they know nothing about! (Prov.21:27 The sacrifice (Prayer Offerings) of the wicked is abomination: how much more, when he bringeth it with a wicked mind?)! They have no true wisdom that cometh from above:

Prov.1:20 Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets:

21 She crieth in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city she uttereth her words, saying,

22 How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? And the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?

23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.

24 Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;

25 But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:

26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;

27 When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.

28 Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:

29 For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord:

30 They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.

31 Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices. (Is.4:1).

32 For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.

33 But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.

We either win this race of ours legally by the rules set forth by our LORD that are in His every word to us Mt.4:4 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!

We cannot win our race that Apostle Paul was talking about which is our life’s race to Heaven’s gate without playing by the rules set forth by our Great God! He is not a man first of all, He is Spirit, the Holy Spirit that became man, begotten, incarnated, or manifested 1 Tm.3:16, whatever; He the Holy Spirit robbed Himself in flesh came down to us because He so loved the entire world (Jn.3:16-ffs) that was at risk here from sin that had entered into His Universe, that God had to figure out a way to cleanse it, or destroy the whole thing and start over, with either water for cleansing or with fire, as in Baptism, washing away the filth of the flesh (1 Pt.3:21; Mt.3:11; Lk.3:16 and with Fire, Ac.2:1-4!), not the sin, for the blood of God covers all past sins, (Ro.3:25), God’s Grace or Favour is not for covering future sins; it is the power to live above sin, that is how you live in God’s Favour, we go and sin no more EVER!

We are to repent and go a new direction, not being led by the flesh! That was buried and died in the water of Baptism, the watery grave, in Jesus’ name, Ro.6:4, Col.2:12, that is how we put on Jesus (Gal.3:26-27, Lk.24:47), by dying to self and being born again of a new creature, born of a New Spirit of a new heart of God’s Eternal Love that is pure in us; (Ac.2:1-4, that is how we know a Saint, meaning Hagios, Holy, because they have been born again of the Holy One, Lk.1:35, in Spirit and in Truth, in a new fleshly body, a Holy One!), this is who all the Epistles were written to: 2 Cor.5:1 For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.

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

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

4 For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.

5 Now He that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit.

6 Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord:

7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)

8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

9 Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of Him!

10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that everyone may receive the things done in His body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. We have been bought we are no longer our own, we are to be His Body! See 1 Cor.3:1-16-17 and 1 Cor.6:1-19-20 as well as 2 Cor.6:14-18; see 1 Pt.2:1-25. We are to be Holy and Priestly Nation of God’s chosen children, abiding in One Shepherd watching our Souls!

11 Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are made manifest unto God; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences.

12 For we commend not ourselves again unto you, but give you occasion to glory on our behalf, that ye may have somewhat to answer them which glory in appearance, and not in heart! (They have an appearance of godliness but no power, dunamis power, Strong’s number 1411!). (http://biblehub.net/searchstrongs.php?q=dunamai)

13 For whether we be beside ourselves, it is to God: or whether we be sober, it is for your cause.

14 For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead:

15 And that He died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto Him which died for them, and rose again! (That right there is the difference of a True Saint of God or one who just calls himself a Christian because they know of Him and believe in Him but that is all they do! One has surrendered themselves over to His Will and His Word s to us that we actually live by!)

16 Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we Him no more.

17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he (Holy being bought by God’s own blood, which paid for the price of our sins! He the Saint…) is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to Himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;

19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto Himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.

21 For He hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him. (Jesus Christ our LORD and Saviour! Ac.2:36 & Ac.10:36, Jesus is LORD of ALL!).

Those who have run their course well and have listened to every word of the Lord, and have fulfilled it, with love for Him, as a faithful servant not grudgingly; for the commandments of God are not grievous to us. 1 Jn.5:3 for they keep us from all sin: 1 Jn.5:18 We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but He that is begotten of God keepeth Himself, and that wicked one toucheth Him not. (See Jn.14:6, that is who we are to follow in Word and in Deed Col.3:17! Or we fail most miserably, being still in our sins of being self-willed and reprobates of hardened hearts of stony flesh! Jn.8:47, We either hear the word of God and do it or we are of the other that are still in the world of the lusts of the flesh, that will not enter into His rest, 1 Jn.2:15-17! See is.28:9-12 & 13 who are the other ones, who will not hear the word of God in their ears and be healed of their wickedness! But we of the word are they who will return with Him to reign with Him in His Kingdom to come!). That’s because His Spirit is in us to keep us from all wrong, when we are led by the His Holy Spirit and not by the flesh that wars against the Spirit:

Gal.5:13 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.

14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.

16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.

17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.

18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.

19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God!

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law!

24 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts!

25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit!

26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another!

We have the words of the Apostles, who follow after Christ Jesus, who told us to follow them as they follow Him, see Jn.15:3, 14, 20 & 26! We either keep all that is given to us or fall short being partially right, with sin in our lives, but know this that one sin is enough to keep anyone out of Heaven, for sin is death!

Ro.6:16 Know 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?

17 But 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.

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

19 I 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.

20 For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness.

21 What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death! (Sin is a death sentence and we will be cut off from our God due to any sin in our lives!).

22 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God (Lk.17:7-10), ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life! (We have our own jobs to do for the Lord, and we had better be found doing them when He returns for His Bride who has made herself ready for Him: That means we have to do something with our faith;

(See Jms.2:1 My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons.

For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment;

And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool:

Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts?

Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which He hath promised to them that love him?

But ye have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats?

Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called?

If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well:

But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.

10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.

11 For He that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law.

12 So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty.

13 For He shall have judgment without mercy, that hath shewed no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment.

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! (You can believe all day long but without works how is your beliefs substantiated, without fruits or works bearing an act of repentance, Ac.26:19-20!).

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! (Can you name Him? If not there is still work to do here isn’t there?).

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! It takes living by all scriptures in us to be found whole, and pure in the eyes of Him who sees all! Mt.5:48)

Ro.6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Without the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with speaking in tongues as given for evidence and confirmation of testing the spirits (1 Jn.4:1 & 1 Cor.14:39!), we have no rules to test with do we but the confirmation that was given to us in the Words of God for our testing Ac.17:10-11; Ac.2:1-4, 8:16-17, 10:44-48, 11:1-18, 19:1-7 and even in Ac.22:16 and again in Ac.26:19-20, that we too must have works worthy of repentance, it is a commandment Ac.17:10-11. You cannot be born again without it showing up on the outside as you grow closer to God He will draw closer to you, and you will learn what it is that our Great God expects from each of us! And it is not just to believe and you are saved either that is some kind of Lutheran Dogma of the Roman Catholic’s stuff trying to get rid of some more of the Holy Sacred Words of God, by cutting them out God’s own Words of life to us: Even from the life we are to live and to rely on without a priest for absolution but Jesus is the only mediator between God and man, Gal.3:20, but God is still One! See Zech.14:9, we have to have all scripture complement each other or we have the wrong Exegesis of it!

We must be doers of all the words of God, or we too will lose our place in heaven as Saul did in 1 Sam.15:1 Samuel also said unto Saul, The Lord sent me to anoint thee to be king over His people, over Israel: now therefore hearken thou unto the voice of the words of the Lord.

2 Thus saith the Lord of hosts, I remember that which Amalek did to Israel, how he laid wait for him in the way, when he came up from Egypt.

3 Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass.

4 And Saul gathered the people together, and numbered them in Telaim, two hundred thousand footmen, and ten thousand men of Judah.

5 And Saul came to a city of Amalek, and laid wait in the valley.

6 And Saul said unto the Kenites, Go, depart, get you down from among the Amalekites, lest I destroy you with them: for ye shewed kindness to all the children of Israel, when they came up out of Egypt. So the Kenites departed from among the Amalekites.

7 And Saul smote the Amalekites from Havilah until thou comest to Shur that is over against Egypt.

8 And he took Agag the king of the Amalekites alive, and utterly destroyed all the people with the edge of the sword.

9 But Saul and the people spared Agag, and the best of the sheep, and of the oxen, and of the fatlings, and the lambs, and all that was good, and would not utterly destroy them: but everything that was vile and refuse, that they destroyed utterly! (The down fall of Saul, he spared Agag for one and then he kept back all that was perfect for breeding and for sacrificing, which they were not told to do!).

10 Then came the word of the Lord unto Samuel, saying,

11 It repenteth Me that I have set up Saul to be king: for he is turned back from following Me, and hath not performed My Commandments. And it grieved Samuel; and he cried unto the Lord all night.

12 And when Samuel rose early to meet Saul in the morning, it was told Samuel, saying, Saul came to Carmel, and, behold, he set him up a place, and is gone about, and passed on, and gone down to Gilgal.

13 And Samuel came to Saul: and Saul said unto him: Blessed be thou of the Lord: I have performed the commandment of the Lord.

14 And Samuel said: (One of my favorite verses in the whole Bible right here!): What meaneth then this bleating of the sheep in mine ears, and the lowing of the oxen which I hear?

15 And Saul said: They have brought them from the Amalekites: For the people spared the best of the sheep and of the oxen, to sacrifice unto the Lord thy God; and the rest we have utterly destroyed.

16 Then Samuel said unto Saul: Stay, and I will tell thee what the Lord hath said to me this night. And he said unto him, Say on.

17 And Samuel said: When thou wast little in thine own sight, wast thou not made the head of the tribes of Israel, and the Lord anointed thee king over Israel?

18 And the Lord sent thee on a journey, and said: Go and utterly destroy the sinners the Amalekites, and fight against them until they be consumed.

19 Wherefore then didst thou not obey the voice of the Lord, but didst fly upon the spoil, and didst evil in the sight of the Lord?

20 And Saul said unto Samuel, Yea, I have obeyed the voice of the Lord, and have gone the way which the Lord sent me, and have brought Agag the king of Amalek (Another failure and Saul doesn’t even see it, much like those in the churches of today is it not? They have blinded themselves with their own wants and desires of the flesh which is more important than the words of God to them! Just like Saul! They only do the part of the words of God that seem right unto them!), and have utterly destroyed the Amalekites.

21 But the people took of the spoil, sheep and oxen, the chief of the things which should have been utterly destroyed, to sacrifice unto the Lord thy God in Gilgal.

22 And 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!

23 FOR 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!

24 And Saul said unto Samuel, I have sinned: for I have transgressed the commandment of the Lord, and thy words: because I feared the people, and obeyed their voice (Mt.10:16-42).

25 Now therefore, I pray thee, pardon my sin, and turn again with me, that I may worship the Lord.

26 And Samuel said unto Saul, I will not return with thee: for thou hast rejected the word of the Lord, and the Lord hath rejected thee from being king over Israel.

27 And as Samuel turned about to go away, he laid hold upon the skirt of his mantle, and it rent.

28 And Samuel said unto him, The Lord hath rent the kingdom of Israel from thee this day, and hath given it to a neighbour of thine, that is better than thou.

29 And also the Strength of Israel will not lie nor repent: for He is not a man that He should repent! (Samuel was right here as well God is not a man, God is a Spirit who is Holy and Righteous in all His ways! Ex.33:19 & Ro.9:15 & 18.).

30 Then he said, I have sinned: yet honour me now, I pray thee, before the elders of my people, and before Israel, and turn again with me, that I may worship the Lord thy God.

31 So Samuel turned again after Saul; and Saul worshipped the Lord. (After all the Lord might have mercy on Saul if he repents with a pure heart. After all He changes not, and He would that all come to repentance, 2 Pt.3:9.).

32 Then said Samuel, Bring ye hither to me Agag the king of the Amalekites. And Agag came unto him delicately. And Agag said: Surely the bitterness of death is past.

33 And Samuel said: As thy sword hath made women childless, so shall thy mother be childless among women. And Samuel hewed Agag in pieces before the Lord in Gilgal.

34 Then Samuel went to Ramah; and Saul went up to his house to Gibeah of Saul.

35 And Samuel came no more to see Saul until the day of his death: nevertheless Samuel mourned for Saul: and the Lord repented that He had made Saul king over Israel.

Saul lost it all because he was afraid of his men, so he said, but he was just looking for someone to blame other than his own foolishness and self-will, after all he was the King of Israel. His power went to his head and he became a respecter of persons, rather than to obey the word of God-given to him by the Lord’s own Prophet! That is a Dangerous mistake at any age to come, for God will always have at least one Prophet, which He can use, look at Elijah. He thought he was the only one left that worshipped God, but God had 7000 that had not bowed a knee to Baal. He will always have a remnant, Mt.7:13 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 thereat:

14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it! (Mt.20:16 & Mt.22:14 as well!).
I have warned you repeatedly, this is what He is looking for in us, to repent, Rev.2:4-5, and do the first works, be baptized every one of you in the only name by which salvation comes, Ac.4:12, that is answering what Jesus said to do in Lk.24:47: Let’s read it; Lk.24:45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,

46 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:

47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem!

48 And ye are witnesses of these things.

We are all witnesses of these things for the word of God cannot lie and are all true! Therefore that is what the first church of God in Jesus Christ did, when about 3000 souls joined the church of the living God on the day of Pentecost, when Peter preached his first sermon! When they asked men and brethren what must we do to be saved? Here is the answer to all salvation: Ac.2:38 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.

43 And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles.

44 And all that believed were together, and had all things common;

45 And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need.

46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,

47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved! Not man with his programs in a assembly of believers but God our Lord Jesus searched their very hearts and found the pure of heart and anointed them with His Holy Spirit, and he added unto them daily that are drawn to the Father all find Jesus for that same reason He is the Father always has been and always will be, he is the First and the Last, the Aleph Tav, the Alpha and Omega, there is none other Zech.14:9, the One True God 1 Jn.5:20!

There is the answer, the simplicity of it! All others are just hocus pocus, rituals and traditions, we either keep to the Apostle’s doctrines or walk any old way we want, and you had better get all the enjoyment out of it as you can for eternity awaits just ahead; so are you going to live for the flesh of pleasure or walk in Spirit and in Truth, mortifying the flesh that wars against the Spirit? That is what the Holy Word of God says we must do: Jn.4:23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him (Jn.1:12-13).

24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and in Truth (See Jn.1:17).

Jesus says that if we are His we will keep all His commandments as well Jn.14:15, Jesus even says only the children of God will hear His words to them, Jn.8:47!

All I know is that God cannot lie, Num.23:19, 1 Sam.15:29, we can preach no other gospel or we too will be accursed three or four times for adding to and taking away from the words of God, Deu.4:2, Deu.5:31-33, Josh.1:7 Heb.13:8-9 and Rev.22:18-19 but our God cannot lie in either the New Testament Heb.6:18, seen in Mal.3:6, because He changes not and is looking for this from us as well: Mal.3:16 Then 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.

17 And 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.

18 Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.

He changes not therefore consider your ways:

Hag.1:5 Now therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts: Consider your ways.

6 Ye have sown much, and bring in little; ye eat, but ye have not enough; ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink; ye clothe you, but there is none warm; and he that earneth wages earneth wages to put it into a bag with holes.

7 Thus saith the Lord of hosts: Consider your ways.

You are supposed to be the Living Temples for God’s Holy Spirit to be in us. That is why we are to come out from among the unclean generations because the world that is un-repented is still in its sin and is wicked and in an unclean state 1 Jn.5:19, and we are to be a Holy Nation set apart from the world Ex.19:6, we are to be Holy Priests of God, who are His children! From Old to New Testament God stays the same, He has called us to Holiness and Righteousness; His way or we have not overcome this flesh nature yet still and will die in our sins until we have cleansed ourselves by doing all that He has told us to do His way, in His words to us:

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! (Please continue to the end of this chapter as well it is that important for every one of us to read this and understand it so we know what it is that we are to be doing when our Lord returns for those who are in His fields of labour!)

When we have done that; we are to go to work doing all that He wants us to go and do for Him, this is in answer to:

Jn.3:3 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.

4 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?

5 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!

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

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

8 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 (See Mk.8:34-38)!

When we get our heart right with God, we look to Him with the heart of a servant, which was formed by a Great God, we are the clay, He is the Potter, can the clay tell the Potter what and how to make itself? No God will have mercy on whom He will have mercy on, this too was started in Ex.33:19 with Moses, and is carried over to the New Testament as well in Ro.9:15 & 18, we either live by the word of God because He is our Sovereign God and love Him or we perish with a wrong heart and a rebellious spirit, the choice is all ours!

As for me and my house I choose the Lord our God to serve, for He is merciful and His loving kindness are from generation to generation to all them who love Him with a pure heart! If you need help with anything I have told you today or anytime every. Do not hesitate, get a hold of me and let’s talk about it, Hell’s fires are too hot, and are never quenched. To be getting one thing wrong in our walk with our Great God, whose NAME is above every name; Jesus our LORD and Christ Ac.2:36, who is LORD of all Ac.10:36 and that is all we have to remember, that there is but One God and His name is Jesus of Nazareth Rev.4:8 And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.

And only the Overcomers of the flesh will be found at His dinner table in Heaven: Rev.3:6 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith He that is Holy, He that is true, He that hath the key of David, He that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;

8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patients, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth! (And few that there will be, Mt.20:16 and 22:14!).

11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown!

12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him My New Name!

13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches!

You have only one chance to get this right in this lifetime or for eternity be left out wailing and crying, “My God my God why have you forsaken me?” Get a hold of me let us talk and reason together, for the Lord would that none be lost and all come to repentance, and to grow in Grace in the word of God, so you can follow Him in word and in deed (Col.3:17) so you too can find His favour, and mercy forevermore in the Knowledge of Jesus Christ 2 Pt.3:18!

Lord’s Way International
Rev. G. L. Boyett
Written in the Last Days, 9/2/2015!

Who are you dying-out daily for?

Message for today’s children of God:
Hag.1:5 Now therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts; Consider your ways.

6 Ye have sown much, and bring in little; ye eat, but ye have not enough; ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink; ye clothe you, but there is none warm; and he that earneth wages earneth wages to put it into a bag with holes.

7 Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Consider your ways.
Ecc.12:7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

8 Vanity of vanities, saith the preacher; all is vanity.

9 And moreover, because the preacher was wise, he still taught the people knowledge; yea, he gave good heed, and sought out, and set in order many proverbs.

10 The preacher sought to find out acceptable words: and that which was written was upright, even words of truth.

11 The words of the wise are as goads, and as nails fastened by the masters of assemblies, which are given from one shepherd.

12 And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.

13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.

14 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

Mal.3:13 Your words have been stout against me, saith the Lord. Yet ye say, What have we spoken so much against thee?

14 Ye have said, It is vain to serve God: and what profit is it that we have kept his ordinance, and that we have walked mournfully before the Lord of hosts?

15 And now we call the proud happy; yea, they that work wickedness are set up; yea, they that tempt God are even delivered.

16 Then 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.

17 And 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.

18 Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.

Who are you working for your own life or another’s? Are you working for the only one who can make you worthy of His Kingdom? If you are not picking up your cross daily and spreading this gospel message, you are not worthy of Him not my words to you this morning but His, the Lord Jesus Himself, as called out in Mt.10:32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.

33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.

34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.

35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

36 And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.

37 He 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.

38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.

39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.

40 He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.

41 He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward.

42 And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.

We are either ashamed of His words to us and we preach and teach them to the best of our ability or we are ashamed of Him and His words to us and will die in our shame, for if you are ashamed to teach this to your children you are as these in Judges chapter 2 verse 10: 10 And also all that generation were gathered unto their fathers: and there arose another generation after them, which knew not the Lord, nor yet the works which he had done for Israel. And you wonder why the country is in a state that it is in! Well you didn’t speak up were you ashamed of His words to us? Well if so this is what you end up with Chaos and a world continually wicked 1 Jn.5:19!

When men do this: Judges 17:6 In those days there was no king in Israel, but every man did that which was right in his own eyes. & Judges 21:25 In those days there was no king in Israel: every man did that which was right in his own eyes.

Just as it says in Ecc.1:1 The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem.

2 Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity.

3 What profit hath a man of all his labour which he taketh under the sun?

4 One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever.

5 The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he arose.

6 The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits.

7 All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.

8 All things are full of labour; man cannot utter it: the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing.

9 The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.

10 Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.

11 There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after.

Well I’ve come today to give you a remembrance; when all these things went on before the Lord he came down just before man destroyed himself and Jesus says to us today the same thing if He had not shortened the days there would be no man left, the idiots would have wiped all of themselves off the worlds maps with their own ideologies and vain philosophies; instead of just listening to an Almighty God, that has a plan that is eternal! Now you tell me how stupid is that, to follow after someone who is leading us to hell in a pretty flowery dressed up imaginary hand basket, called our own government and President Obama?

Mal.3:

16 Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and the Lordhearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name.

17 And 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.

18 Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.

Rev.2:

Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.

Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.

1 Tm.3:16 & 6:11-21; Is.60:1-22; Is.40:3; Mt.4:3, worshipping in Spirit and in Truth Jn.4:23-24, Jn.1:17; the One True God in Jesus reconciling the world unto Himself, 2 Cor.5:19-21 so that we to can come out from among this world that lies in wickedness, 1 Jn.5:19 and worship the One True God Jesus Christ seen in 1 Jn.5:20; Is.9:6 who is the Mighty God! The First and the Last, Rev.4:8, who is the Holy Spirit manifested in the flesh, 1 Tm.3:16 because God is a Spirit seen and talked about by Jesus Himself in Jn.4:24; and when you have seen Jesus, you have seen the one who sent Him, Jn.12:45; for they are one in the same, Jn.10:30!

What Will God Do In The End?

What Will God Do In The End?

Written by

Rev. G. L. Boyett

Written in the Last Days, 5/27/2015.

Eze.21: 24 Therefore thus saith the Lord God: Because ye have made your iniquity to be remembered, in that your transgressions are discovered, so that in all your doings your sins do appear; because, I say, that ye are come to remembrance, ye shall be taken with the hand.

25 And thou, profane wicked prince of Israel, whose day is come, when iniquity shall have an end,

26 Thus saith the Lord God; Remove the diadem, and take off the crown: this shall not be the same: exalt him that is low, and abase him that is high.

27 I will overturn, overturn, overturn, it: and it shall be no more, until he come whose right it is; and I will give it him.

28 And thou, son of man, prophesy and say, Thus saith the Lord God concerning the Ammonites, and concerning their reproach; even say thou, The sword, the sword is drawn: for the slaughter it is furbished, to consume because of the glittering:

29 Whiles they see vanity unto thee, whiles they divine a lie unto thee, to bring thee upon the necks of them that are slain, of the wicked, whose day is come, when their iniquity shall have an end.

30 Shall I cause it to return into his sheath? I will judge thee in the place where thou wast created, in the land of thy nativity.

31 And 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.

32 Thou 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.

The reason Israel was drug off by the Assyrians, and Judah was drug off to Babylonia by the Chaldean’s is because they violated God’s Covenant with them repeatedly till the Lord had had enough, and turned His back to them! The Lord allowed their own actions to come back upon them so they ended up reaping what they had sown, sound familiar? See Gal.6:1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such a 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 (Cross, Mt.16:24-28 & Mk.8:34-38and the Gospel’s sake.).

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 (Works do follow you! See Rev.14:13), 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 (Without Holiness and Righteousness that is of God, you will not enter into His rest! Mt.5:20 & Heb.12:14 are just two verses.). See Ro.8:1-13 as well! This lesson is going to be all over the Holy Bible, God will not be mocked! We are in the farming business, and we had better be found blowing ground, seeding soils, watering and weeding, and to be bringing in the sheaves, that are ripe and ready for His Harvest! Jn.3:3-8, and then do it again until He comes and we are found faithful servants increasing His Talent, He gave us to increase! Mt.13:3-23 & Mt.25:14-30.

See Eze.22:

24 Son of man, say unto her (Israel), Thou art the land that is not cleansed, nor rained upon in the day of indignation.

25 There is a conspiracy of her prophets in the midst thereof, like a roaring lion ravening the prey; they have devoured souls; they have taken the treasure and precious things; they have made her many widows in the midst thereof.

26 Her priests have violated my law, and have profaned mine holy things: they have put no difference between the holy and profane, neither have they shewed difference between the unclean and the clean, and have hid their eyes from my Sabbaths, and I am profaned among them.

27 Her princes in the midst thereof are like wolves ravening the prey, to shed blood, and to destroy souls, to get dishonest gain.

28 And her prophets have daubed them with untempered mortar, seeing vanity, and divining lies unto them, saying, Thus saith the Lord God, when the Lord hath not spoken.

29 The people of the land have used oppression, and exercised robbery, and have vexed the poor and needy: yea, they have oppressed the stranger wrongfully.

30 And 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!

31 Therefore have I poured out mine indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath: their own (Works) way have I recompensed upon their heads, saith the Lord God!

We see from these scriptures, that our works do follow us Rev.14:13! We will also be judged by them, and that is carried over from the Old Testament or Covenant, at Baptism of Jesus in the Jordan, to the New Testament or Covenant or Will and as many Wills have conditions to be met and so does this one Jn.14:15. Jn.8:51, Lk.11:28, Mt.4:4, Mt.12:48-50: A man called Jesus, a man who had no sin 2 Cor.5:19-21, was baptized in the Jordan that needed no Repentance but was Baptized so all Righteousness could be fulfilled! What was that righteousness that Jesus spoke of there? It was this seen in Jn.10:23 And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon’s porch.

24 Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly.

25 Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness of me. That Jesus is God manifested in the flesh, thus the Begotten God, Jn.1:18! Son or Flesh of God, 1 Tm.3:16! Jesus told them, the Sanhedrin, that in this place, (while in the temple area Himself), is one greater than the Temple! Who was the Temple made a home for? Solomon built it so God could come and meet with His children called by His name; and now God in the flesh was standing their trying to minister to His children and the Sanhedrin didn’t want to give up their authority or livelihood; so they plotted to kill the Anointed of God, the Holy One the Messiah that was promised to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, who was then called Israel!

Jesus is the manifested I Am, that I Am, Ex.3:14, seen in Jn.8:58, that was before Abraham, and if we do not know Him as such, we cannot worship in Spirit or in Truth, Jn.4:23-24, seen in Jn.8:24 I 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 and the Father are One and the same, Jn.10:30, when you have seen Jesus, you have seen the very one who sent Him, Jn.14:7 & Jn.12:45! Jesus is the True God, 1 Jn.5:20 And we know that the Son (Flesh, The Holy One, Lk.1:35, that is conceived of the Holy Spirit, who is God, Jn.4:24, Rev.4:8!) of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know Him that is true (See Jn.1:12-14 and 17-18), and we are in Him that is true, even in His Son Jesus Christ (Our God with us, Mt.1:23 our Immanuel! Ecc.12:7 and Heb.12:9!): This is the true God and eternal life, Jn.11:25-26! If we do not know Jesus, this way, (Jn.14:1, in His simplicity!), we worship that which we do not know and might as well be worshipping an idol or something else of our own vain imaginations (1 Jn.5:21), that the Roman Catholic thought up in their Platonism philosophies of a trinity (That came from others; not an Apostles of Jesus Christ! See these articles to learn from where this Dogma came: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theophilus_of_Antioch and this one: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tertullian, which was never a church so called father (but was later held to be a heretic by the councils in Rome and Antioch), which we are never to call anyone but Jesus, who is the Father Jn.14:7! Seen in Mt.23:And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi.

But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren. (Christ Jesus is the Head of His Church and we are all brothers, none higher than another, anything more than this is man’s doing and not of God!)

And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven!

10 Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.

Finally see this article, and you will see for yourself why many scriptures refute this doctrine from the Roman Catholic and contradict their dogma: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trinity  given to them from the Pagans and Greek Mythologists, to bring in under one umbrella all religions into a Catholic or Universal theology, of three persons being one God, which is nothing but confusion, which is an abomination to our One God, who will have no other gods besides Him, Isaiah, chapter 43-45 states this most emphatically, when you have seen Jesus, you have seen the invisible Spirit and the very likeness of God manifested in the flesh of Jesus Christ, Jesus is the glory of God that will not be given to another seen in the very face of Jesus seen in 2 Cor.4:1-6, if they had known who Jesus was they would never have crucified the Lord of all Glory, 1 Cor.2:8, that is seen in Is.9:For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace! This is the Fulness of the God head in Jesus Christ that Apostle Paul talked about repeatedly in his Epistles to the Saints, in Eph.4:Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism:

Is.9:Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever! The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this!

Jesus speaking to members and scribes of the Sanhedrin:

Jn.10:26 But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.

27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me (True Saints of God in Jesus Christ!):

28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

29 My Father (See Lk.1:35, Mt.1:18, 20 & 23!), which gave them me, is greater than all (Lk.1:37, Mt.19:26!); and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand (God is a Spirit and has no hands or needs no seat to sit on, until He became flesh!).

30 I and my Father are one!

Jesus just told us and all who were standing around Him who He is, and was, and is to come, Rev.4:8! The One True God, who will judge all the earth and universe He created Col.1:7-29 seen in 2 Cor.5:11 Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are made manifest unto God; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences.

12 For we commend not ourselves again unto you, but give you occasion to glory on our behalf, that ye may have somewhat to answer them which glory in appearance, and not in heart (See 2 Tm.3:1-7).

13 For whether we be beside ourselves, it is to God: or whether we be sober, it is for your cause.

14 For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead:

15 And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.

16 Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh (We are not to be a respecter of persons! Jms.2:1-13, after all the Royal Law is contained in there, verse 8!): yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more.

17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;

19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God!

21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him!).

Then after Jesus told all who He was and even His Supernatural powers of healing even confirmed to them who He was, that He and the Father are indeed ONE! What did those of the Sanhedrin do?

Jn.10:31 Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him!

The very same thing they did when Jesus told them He is the I Am, in Jn.8:58, see the next verse here as well: 59 Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by! Another supernatural event, Jesus hid Himself and He past them by unharmed, because His time had not yet come!).

Jn.10:32 Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?

33 The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God. (No God was showing Himself to be a man, A God–Man, a Theophany of sort, which is an appearance or aberration, Jesus is more than that, He is a Theoanthrophany, A God-Man, Otherly, A Divine Being without sin, who is Good, meaning Complete or Perfect (Mt.5:48, Eze.14:1-23) and we need to be Theo-Anthropologists, ones who study Our God man with us, Emmanuel, who Jesus is! The scribes and Sanhedrin lacked faith that God could do anything He wanted, Lk.1:37, He is sovereign, Ex.33:19 & Ro.9:15, 18, 1 Tm.3:16!)

  34 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said (See Most people don’t see this either! Jesus said “I Said” here! Jesus did not say the Father said here. Ps.82:1-8, in the Psalms God said I have said past tense, Jesus was using the present tense here!), Ye are gods? Are we not the Sons of the Living God: If we have been born-again of Him, His way, Jn.1:12-13, that is of God only, so that the Sons of God may bring Him glory?

35 If he called them gods (lords, kings, ministers or priests, and judges, see 1 Pt.2:9 from Ex.19:5-6 & Deu.7:6, we are to be a Holy People!), unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken;

36 Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son (Manifestation or Incarnation, that is Begotten) of God? Jesus came forth from God, Jn.8:42, Jn.16:28, see 1 Tm.6:13-16! Jesus is the only one who has all the fulness of God in Him, and God said to those who could here, let them here, In Him I Am! Well Pleased.

37 If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not (Jn.14:1)! The glory of God was in their very presence, the glory that will never be given to another, (Is.42:8, and Is.48:11-12 seen in Jn.11:40, 2 Cor.4:6 & 1 Cor.2:8), after bringing Lazarus to life after four days dead! Which only God can do, and to forgive sin, that too is an Old Testament truth as well: Job.14:Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? Not one. But God can! Is there anything God cannot do? See also Is.43:25 I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins. And finally this one: Dan.9:To the Lord our God belong mercies and forgivenesses, though we have rebelled against him;

10 Neither have we obeyed the voice of the Lord our God, to walk in his laws, which he set before us by his servants the prophets. When we do these things this is all we have to look forward to, that is seen in His scriptures as well: Dan.12:1 And 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.

And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.

And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.

Jn.10:38 But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him. So how can the Father be in Jesus and Jesus in the Farther?

God is a Spirit the Holy Spirit Rev.4:8, who has given us His word which is His will for all His creation, 2 Pt.1:17 For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son (Flesh): In whom I Am: Well pleased, [to be]! For they are One in the Same. Jn.10:30, see Gal.3:20 & 1 Tm.2:5-6! 1 Tm.3:16! Mt.1:23 our Immanuel! For the very Spirit of God, that is God’s Essence, which is His very will or Power and Being; that is Omnipresent, Omnipotent, and Omniscient; the Very One Who only is POTENTATE, 1 Tm.6:13-16! That Jesus now dwells in, the Shekinah Glory which no man can look upon, which the immortal Jesus is now enshrined in; seated on the very Throne of God, for there is One who sat on the throne: Rev.4:1 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.

And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne!

And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald. Jesus in the Shekinah Glory, now immortal flesh of God, to sit at the right hand, means to sit in all power and authority, Mt.28:18! All power and wisdom of God 1 Cor.1:24 was in Jesus for that one reason, He it is to whom it was due Him to have! Jesus has made us rulers with Him, who know who He is, if we too overcome this flesh and live in the Holy Spirit (Ro.8:1-ffs) as Jesus did, Ac.20:28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which He (The manifested presence of God in the flesh, 1 Tm.3:16!), hath purchased with His own blood (The very blood of the manifested presence of God with us, was shed for our sin! When Jesus said “My God My God why have you forsaken Me?” It was a prophetical statement from Ps.22:1 and is for those who call themselves Christians and have not a clue to what it means to be a servant of the Lord, Mt.7:15-23 & Lk.6:46.

We are to live this word of God in our lives not just talk about it! Believing without action is not faith or having Understanding, we can be wise, but wisdom is not being wise until something is known and believed to be true and then put into action that will be held accountable for, that is faith in what you believe, this too is what the Apostles James the brother of Jesus was saying in his Epistle to us in the 2nd chapter! This too is how Abraham was seen by God to be Righteous, Abraham stepped out in faith and believed God and left his homeland for another that God would show him. The Promised Land, which is what we too are looking for, a Heavenly Land that will come down from God above! This is that rest, for heaven was in Jesus, Mt.12:28 & Lk.11:20, for where Jesus is, there is Heaven with us, Lk.17:21!)!

Looking for Truth!

See Tit.2:1 But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine:

That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience.

The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;

That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,

To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.

Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded.

In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity,

Sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you.

Exhort servants to be obedient unto their own masters, and to please them well in all things; not answering again;

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 Saviour of us Jesus Christ! http://biblehub.com/interlinear/titus/2.htm.

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! No Pope, no Priest, no so called Pastor, Evangelist or Prophet of God, let no man despise thee, if you are truly walking with God and is word is living and alive in you!

These are the very things we are to make manifest in our lives, with fruits worthy of Repentance, Ac.26:19-20, for we too will be known by our fruits, Mt.7:15-23, not all who say Lord, Lord, will enter into the Kingdom of God! But they who do His Will, Jn.6:63, for the Bible was written by Him for Him and His children, Jn.5:39-44! This is who gave us Jesus, who is the very Word of God, Jn.1:1-18, who lives all what He was, which is the very will of God for all men and mankind, which are to do and follow as seen in Mt.5:1-20! Our Holiness and Righteousness is entirely up to us and how well we perceive, the meanings of His word to us (As they were used in the day they were written to the people they were intended to have! This too is why we need to learn Etymology of the words of God, what did they really mean to us when used for the time they were given to us?), do we rightly divine them? 2 Tm.2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. Really do you do this, study the Hebrew or Aramaic as well as the Greek, I wouldn’t even bother with the Latin, all they did was use it to disguise the Holy Bible from the Laity, for they thought they had no right to the sacred word of God, they were then a respecter of persons were they not (Ac.10:34; Jms.2:1-13, and 2 Pt.3:9), why then does the Roman Catholic Church think they are above the words given to the Apostles by the Holy Ghost, see Jn.15:16 & 20!?

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, (Fruits or Works of Godliness! Without Holiness and Righteousness no man will enter into His Kingdom!), with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart! See Mt.5:8.

23 But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes. (Which the Roman Catholic did for generations upon generations until they have libraries full of contentions and strifes about needless questions!)

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; (Did the Roman Catholic do that? Don’t think the Protestants or Lutherans or Calvinists are any better they aren’t they killed and burned at the stake as well as drowned the Hutterites and the rest of the Brethren from where the Amish come from as well as the Mennonites, and the Quakers: The Roman Catholic and even the Protestants, called this drowning the second baptism because the Brethren didn’t believe in baptizing children; they waited until they were of age to make a decision for God and to ask for forgiveness after the child knew what repentance was (See Numbers chapter 15 on ignorance of sin and Ro.14:12-23 as well as Col.2:16-17! Where was the Mercy of God and the longsuffering as well as compassion we are to show for our enemies even to offer them food and drink and to bless them and to pray for them who despitefully use you?

Where was this in early Christianity, read Philip Schaff’s History of the Christian Church, free at this site: http://www.ccel.org/s/schaff/history/About.htm.

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

 Do we keep all the word of God that came down from heaven?

2 Pt.1:18 And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount.

19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy (Rev.19:10); whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place (1 Jn.5:19), until the day dawn, and the Day Star arise in your hearts: See Is.49:6.

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 (Mt.12:30-32)! See in 1 Pt.1:7-17, who this Holy Ghost was: 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 (Is.53), and the glory that should follow (Is.55:1-13).

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.

13 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ (We were given instructions on what it is we were to be doing, Works!);

14 As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance:

15 But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;

16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy (We had better be found HOLY AS HE IS HOLY!).

17 And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man’s work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear: The Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: Ps.111:10, Prov.1:7, and 9:10, to call out just a few!

18 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;

19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:

20 Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,

21 Who by him do believe in God; that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God! That raised Himself up out of the dead, Jn.10:17 Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.

18 No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father (That was in Him!). See Jn.10:30, for the Father and I are One! Jesus received this power of Himself, as the Holy Spirit wrote 530 years before He was pierced, 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. You see when we understand who Jesus is, we then can get a better understanding of How all the Law was fulfilled in and by us in Gal.5:14, when we love our brother,, for Christ Jesus who is God manifested in the flesh, and was born of a virgin became our brother, when He became a living soul of flesh and blood! Therefore when we love our brethren as ourselves we are loving God with us as well which is the first commandment! Thus all the Law is fulfilled in this: Gal.5:14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Just as Apostle Paul had said to us!

The Prophets of Old wrote as they were moved upon by the very Spirit of God in them 2 Pt.1:19-21, see Jn.14: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 Lk.1:35 & 37!

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. (So you see we had better have some works! Jn.14:6, if we are to be as He is; which will not be at all difficult if He actually lives in you! For it will be Him that will do the works in and through you! The gifts and mercy of God are without repentance, Ro.11:29and Jms.1:16-17!)

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 forever;

17 Even the Spirit of truth(Jn.1:17); whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth Him not, neither knoweth Him: but ye know Him; for He dwelleth with you (Mt.1:23), and shall be in you (Joel 2 :28, Ac.2:1-4 and Ac.2:16-ffs). See Mt.11:27, Lk.10:22, Jn.13:3, for this too is a worthy Bible study of its own.

18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you! This is exactly what Jesus did at Pentecost: Jn.14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send IN MY NAME, he shall teach you all things (Jn.1:17), and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you (Mt.10:19-20, Jesus’ Spirit and the Father’s Spirit are one in the same, Jn.10:30, God is that Spirit Jn.4:24, that is HOLY, Rev.4:8!). Jn.15:26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of ME (Jn.5:39-44): Why? So that we can be One as Jesus is both the CHRIST, as well as the LORD, Ac.2:36, who is LORD of ALL, Ac.10:36, which has made Himself known to all: Jn.17:And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do! See Jn.4:34-35, God could not finish His work, till He robed Himself in flesh and died for us on the cross! It took the shedding of righteous, sinless blood that had and has all power in it, for it is the Righteous blood of the very God-man! Whom purchased all of us (1 Cor.6:19-20, see 2 Pt.2:1 and Ro.14:7-8), 1 Cor.3: 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! Remember Jn.10:30, the flesh and the Spirit has become One God, Gal.3:20, 1 Tm.2:3-6!

You Shall Be Known By Your Fruits, which is your Works!

We will be judged by our works, because the Lord Jesus the Morning Star or the Day Star has told us so! When we do as we are told by our earthly fathers, we have done that which is right and most of the time we are rewarded for it. This too is up to him as well as our God, see Lk.17:But which of you, having a servant plowing or feeding cattle, will say unto him by and by, when he is come from the field, Go and sit down to meat?

And will not rather say unto him, Make ready wherewith I may sup, and gird thyself, and serve me, till I have eaten and drunken; and afterward thou shalt eat and drink?

Doth he thank that servant because he did the things that were commanded him? I trow not.

10 So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do! This is a true Servant of God! We have just done that which was our duty and nothing more, If we love Him and keep His Commandments, Jn.14:15, Jn.8:51, Mt.4:4, Lk.4:4 and on and on in the scriptures we are without excuse, if we keep not all that He told us to do!

How do we show our earthly fathers we love them? We do as they have told us to do; because most of the time if we have a Godly Christian father, who has been brought up in a Godly household, they will teach us in the right way we are to go, as it is told in the Proverbs of Old Testament! For man has a way that seemeth right unto him, but the flesh wars against the Spirit Gal.5:17, Prov.14:12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. Prov.16:25 There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. Only when we obey our Heavenly Father, who was manifested in the flesh and gave Himself for our Salvation, Ac.4:12, that is only found in Jesus’ name, Lk.24:47! Can we be found to have put on Christ Jesus, Gal.3:26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. 27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. We are to be “Baptized in Jesus’ name” to have His blood to cover our sins, for without blood there is no forgiveness of sin! If we have not Jesus’ name we have not His blood to cover our sins Heb.9:22! Jesus was Baptized by John the Baptist for a couple of different reasons, one it was written: Is.40:1-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! (See the rest of these verses, all the way to 8.

All of this was done as I told you in the beginning so all Righteousness could be fulfilled in Jesus Christ, who is God with us! He tied His Law which is His word to us, which is righteous (Mt.5:17-20), Ro.3:19 Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.

20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.

21 But now the Righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;

22 Even the Righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: (Believe in what? The Word of God and His Promises, that are contained in His words to us! And the forgiveness of sin when we have done all to stand before Him on the Day of Judgment that starts first in the house of God, 1 Pt.4:17-19!)

23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his Righteousness for the remission of sins that are past (Did you notice it said PAST SINS? We are to go and sin no more, Jn.8:11 and Jn.5:14 or a worse thing will come upon us, see Mt.12:43-45, 1 Jn.5:18! That is what true Repentance is all about! We turn and go a new direction, in the direction of Righteousness and Holiness that is Godliness!), through the forbearance of God; (Who is long suffering until we get all of this right in His eyes! See 2 Pt.3:18.).

26 To declare, I say, at this time his Righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.

So with our heart and will (or self-consciousness) we find the words of God to live by in our own lives as it is called out in Ro.7:25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin (We keep our bodies under subjection to all the words of God and allow the Holy Spirit free run of our lives! Ro.8:1-ffs, so many try to use just enough scriptures to please them they never go all the way to the end of the epistles and use it all to make a wise doctrine to stand on; that will stand the scrutiny of our Holy God!). This is the bottom line, we contain our flesh to keep the laws of God, the moral laws that are Spiritual, not the religious laws that the Sanhedrin kept adding to which was illegal to do in the first place, who created around 613 laws  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halakha).

Go not to the right hand or the left!

Which a lot of Oral Laws they have Moses never even said to do in the first place.

See 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.5:31 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.

For all Kings, and are not we the fathers of our own homes the kings of our own domains? So how much more should we keep all the words of God?

To Kings: Ps.37:1-40

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: (Is.28:9-12 so we too can go into His rest, but they of this generation would not hear it: So verse 13 with be their lot!)

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!

Deu.28:1 And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth:

And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God.

Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field.

Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep.

Blessed shall be thy basket and thy store.

Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out.

The Lord shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways.

The Lord shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless thee in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.

The Lord shall establish thee an holy people unto himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of the Lord thy God, and walk in his ways.

10 And all people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of the Lord; and they shall be afraid of thee.

11 And the Lord shall make thee plenteous in goods, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy ground, in the land which the Lord sware unto thy fathers to give thee.

12 The Lord shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow.

13 And the Lord shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the Lord thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them:

14 And thou shalt not go aside from any of the words which I command thee this day, to the right hand, or to the left, to go after other gods to serve them. (Fourteen verses of blessings, and if you do not do that which is right…54 verses of curses; I don’t think Adam and Eve knew what they were letting lose upon the world, when they sinned, for the anger of the Lord is relentless and thorough, until it does its intended work, see Hebrews chapter 12!)

 If you do not heed the word of the Lord, this too will follow after you until you repent:

Deu.28:15 But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:

16 Cursed shalt thou be in the city, and cursed shalt thou be in the field.

17 Cursed shall be thy basket and thy store.

18 Cursed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy land, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep.

19 Cursed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and cursed shalt thou be when thou goest out.

20 The Lord shall send upon thee cursing, vexation, and rebuke, in all that thou settest thine hand unto for to do, until thou be destroyed, and until thou perish quickly; because of the wickedness of thy doings, whereby thou hast forsaken me.

21 The Lord shall make the pestilence cleave unto thee, until he have consumed thee from off the land, whither thou goest to possess it.

22 The Lord shall smite thee with a consumption, and with a fever, and with an inflammation, and with an extreme burning, and with the sword, and with blasting, and with mildew; and they shall pursue thee until thou perish.

23 And thy heaven that is over thy head shall be brass, and the earth that is under thee shall be iron.

24 The Lord shall make the rain of thy land powder and dust: from heaven shall it come down upon thee, until thou be destroyed.

25 The Lord shall cause thee to be smitten before thine enemies: thou shalt go out one way against them, and flee seven ways before them: and shalt be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth.

26 And thy carcasses shall be meat unto all fowls of the air, and unto the beasts of the earth, and no man shall fray them away.

27 The Lord will smite thee with the botch of Egypt, and with the emerods, and with the scab, and with the itch, whereof thou canst not be healed.

28 The Lord shall smite thee with madness, and blindness, and astonishment of heart:

29 And thou shalt grope at noonday, as the blind gropeth in darkness, and thou shalt not prosper in thy ways: and thou shalt be only oppressed and spoiled evermore, and no man shall save thee.

30 Thou shalt betroth a wife, and another man shall lie with her: thou shalt build a house, and thou shalt not dwell therein: thou shalt plant a vineyard, and shalt not gather the grapes thereof.

31 Thine ox shall be slain before thine eyes, and thou shalt not eat thereof: thine ass shall be violently taken away from before thy face, and shall not be restored to thee: thy sheep shall be given unto thine enemies, and thou shalt have none to rescue them.

32 Thy sons and thy daughters shall be given unto another people, and thine eyes shall look, and fail with longing for them all the day long; and there shall be no might in thine hand.

33 The fruit of thy land, and all thy labours, shall a nation which thou knowest not eat up; and thou shalt be only oppressed and crushed alway:

34 So that thou shalt be mad for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see.

35 The Lord shall smite thee in the knees, and in the legs, with a sore botch that cannot be healed, from the sole of thy foot unto the top of thy head.

36 The Lord shall bring thee, and thy king which thou shalt set over thee, unto a nation which neither thou nor thy fathers have known; and there shalt thou serve other gods, wood and stone.

37 And thou shalt become an astonishment, a proverb, and a byword, among all nations whither the Lord shall lead thee.

38 Thou shalt carry much seed out into the field, and shalt gather but little in; for the locust shall consume it.

39 Thou shalt plant vineyards, and dress them, but shalt neither drink of the wine, nor gather the grapes; for the worms shall eat them.

40 Thou shalt have olive trees throughout all thy coasts, but thou shalt not anoint thyself with the oil; for thine olive shall cast his fruit.

41 Thou shalt beget sons and daughters, but thou shalt not enjoy them; for they shall go into captivity.

42 All thy trees and fruit of thy land shall the locust consume.

43 The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low.

44 He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him: he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail.

45 Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee, and shall pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed; because thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which he commanded thee:

46 And they shall be upon thee for a sign and for a wonder, and upon thy seed forever.

47 Because thou servedst not the Lord thy God with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things;

48 Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the Lord shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck, until he have destroyed thee.

49 The Lord shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flieth; a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand;

50 A nation of fierce countenance, which shall not regard the person of the old, nor shew favour to the young:

51 And he shall eat the fruit of thy cattle, and the fruit of thy land, until thou be destroyed: which also shall not leave thee either corn, wine, or oil, or the increase of thy kine, or flocks of thy sheep, until he have destroyed thee.

52 And he shall besiege thee in all thy gates, until thy high and fenced walls come down, wherein thou trustedst, throughout all thy land: and he shall besiege thee in all thy gates throughout all thy land, which the Lord thy God hath given thee.

53 And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body, the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters, which the Lord thy God hath given thee, in the siege, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee:

54 So that the man that is tender among you, and very delicate, his eye shall be evil toward his brother, and toward the wife of his bosom, and toward the remnant of his children which he shall leave:

55 So that he will not give to any of them of the flesh of his children whom he shall eat: because he hath nothing left him in the siege, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee in all thy gates.

56 The tender and delicate woman among you, which would not adventure to set the sole of her foot upon the ground for delicateness and tenderness, her eye shall be evil toward the husband of her bosom, and toward her son, and toward her daughter,

57 And toward her young one that cometh out from between her feet, and toward her children which she shall bear: for she shall eat them for want of all things secretly in the siege and straitness, wherewith thine enemy shall distress thee in thy gates.

58 If thou wilt not observe to do all the words of this law that are written in this book, that thou mayest fear this glorious and fearful name, The Lord Thy God;

59 Then the Lord will make thy plagues wonderful, and the plagues of thy seed, even great plagues, and of long continuance, and sore sicknesses, and of long continuance.

60 Moreover he will bring upon thee all the diseases of Egypt, which thou wast afraid of; and they shall cleave unto thee.

61 Also every sickness, and every plague, which is not written in the book of this law, them will the Lord bring upon thee, until thou be destroyed.

62 And ye shall be left few in number, whereas ye were as the stars of heaven for multitude; because thou wouldest not obey the voice of the Lord thy God.

63 And it shall come to pass, that as the Lord rejoiced over you to do you good, and to multiply you; so the Lord will rejoice over you to destroy you, and to bring you to nought; and ye shall be plucked from off the land whither thou goest to possess it.

64 And the Lord shall scatter thee among all people, from the one end of the earth even unto the other; and there thou shalt serve other gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have known, even wood and stone.

65 And among these nations shalt thou find no ease, neither shall the sole of thy foot have rest: but the Lord shall give thee there a trembling heart, and failing of eyes, and sorrow of mind:

66 And thy life shall hang in doubt before thee; and thou shalt fear day and night, and shalt have none assurance of thy life:

67 In the morning thou shalt say, Would God it were even! And at even thou shalt say, Would God it were morning! For the fear of thine heart wherewith thou shalt fear, and for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see.

68 And the Lord shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships, by the way whereof I spake unto thee, Thou shalt see it no more again: and there ye shall be sold unto your enemies for bondmen and bondwomen, and no man shall buy you.

Which the Lord did after the His Temple was torn down by the Romans, after Jesus’ crucifixion, around 70 A. D.; and each of the stones were taken off the top of each other, and not one stone left on another just as Jesus said it would be, the Roman soldiers were looking for the Gold that ran down in between the cracks in the stones! Millions were killed, as well as, put into slavery and sold; there were so many Jews, that the market was glutted till they could not even sell them, not even the Egyptians wanted them! No land wanted them for they always ended up owning that land, as it is seen in Joseph and Mordecai, when they became the second in command of that country they were brought to as slaves! God has a way of blessing those who are His.

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

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

This was their reply at the time: 16 And the people answered and said, God forbid that we should forsake the Lord, to serve other gods;

17 For the Lord our God, he it is that brought us up and our fathers out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage, and which did those great signs in our sight, and preserved us in all the way wherein we went, and among all the people through whom we passed:

18 And the Lord drave out from before us all the people, even the Amorites which dwelt in the land: therefore will we also serve the Lord; for he is our God.

19 And Joshua said unto the people, Ye cannot serve the Lord: for he is an holy God; he is a jealous God; he will not forgive your transgressions nor your sins.

20 If ye forsake the Lord, and serve strange gods, then he will turn and do you hurt, and consume you, after that he hath done you good.

21 And the people said unto Joshua, Nay; but we will serve the Lord.

22 And Joshua said unto the people, Ye are witnesses against yourselves that ye have chosen you the Lord, to serve him. And they said, We are witnesses.

23 Now therefore put away, said he, the strange gods which are among you, and incline your heart unto the Lord God of Israel.

24 And the people said unto Joshua, The Lord our God will we serve, and his voice will we obey.

25 So Joshua made a covenant with the people that day, and set them a statute and an ordinance in Shechem. (See Judges 2:10 and 9:1-57).

26 And Joshua wrote these words in the book of the law of God, and took a great stone, and set it up there under an oak that was by the sanctuary of the Lord.

27 And Joshua said unto all the people, Behold, this stone shall be a witness unto us; for it hath heard all the words of the Lord which he spake unto us: it shall be therefore a witness unto you, lest ye deny your God.

Which Israel did and the Lord destroyed Shechem, just as He promised in His word to them. Judges 9:1-57, as noted above.

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.

We cannot add to this word or take away from it or teach another Gospel, Gal.1:8-9, and finally the last set of scriptures in adding to or taking away from the word of God: 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.

What Will God Do In The End?

Just exactly what He said He would do!

It is up to us to seek out our own salvation, Phil.2:12, which is only found by obeying His words to us, all of them, 2 Tm.3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,

Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.

But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as their’s also was.

10 But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience,

11 Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me.

12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.

13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.

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!

All the Apostles have shown us what it will look like in the end of days, just before the Lord of all comes back, and this generation fits all the prophecies handed down to us, and this is the only one left that needs to be fulfilled: Mt.24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. Which will come to pass as soon as the Last Two Witnesses come to bring the Truth to the Jews, so they too can know who Jesus is, before it is too late for all of them! All of them must come to the understanding Jesus is their Holy One, the Anointed One, who was promised to their fathers, and the Two witnesses are to change the hearts of the fathers into the children, and the children into the hearts of their fathers! The only ones who will know salvation and the catching away before the time of the trials that will come upon the whole world, seen in Rev.3:And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia (Brotherly LOVE) write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;

I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth! (Have you lived the word of God in patience? See James chapter 1.

11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. (Ac.17:10-11, let no man come and give you false doctrines or dogma of religious Zealots or Scribes and Pharisees of the Roman Catholic Church!

12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.

13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Philadelphia is the church of brotherly love, for IF you have been regenerated in God’s Love, for God is love, 1 Jn.4:1-ffs and love of God casts out all fear, and fear is of the devil, for fear is confusion, and anything that is of confusion is an abomination to our LORD God! Everything about God must be done decently and in Order, 1 Cor.14:40!

When we live in the word of God, it cleanses us, Jn.15:3, (Please see and read all of Jn.15:1-ffs, it is very powerful in the knowledge of Godly things, which all children of God must know!), When we are baptized in Jesus’ name, and we have repented and gone a new direction, Mt.4:17! We have been brought into the covenant relationship with our God the Lord Jesus Christ! When we have done all to stand before the Lord come the day of judgment, that must start with us first, 1 Pt.4:17-19; after we have done all that our LORD Jesus said to do, even this; 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.

This is accomplished when we do this: Lk.24:47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name (Ac.4:12) among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. This was carried out at the birth of the church when about 3000, souls came to be baptized in Jesus’ name on the day of Pentecost, which is about the same number who were lost the day the Ten Commandments came down off Mt. Sinai Ex.32:28; written by the hand of God! This too is prophetic as well as symbolic, to the New World Order God was to usher in! Which is tied directly to the Old Testament, at Jesus’ Baptism, so the word of God which Jesus is; could never be broken, Mt.24:35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away (Mt.5:17-20).

Ps.102:25 Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands.

26 They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed:

27 But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end.

28 The children of thy servants shall continue, and their seed shall be established before thee.

Is.51:1 Hearken to me, ye that follow after righteousness, ye that seek the Lord: look unto the rock whence ye are hewn, and to the hole of the pit whence ye are digged.

Look unto Abraham your father, and unto Sarah that bare you: for I called him alone, and blessed him, and increased him.

For the Lord shall comfort Zion: he will comfort all her waste places; and he will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the Lord; joy and gladness shall be found therein, thanksgiving, and the voice of melody.

Hearken unto me, my people; and give ear unto me, O my nation: for a law shall proceed from me, and I will make my judgment to rest for a light of the people.

My righteousness is near; my salvation is gone forth, and mine arms shall judge the people; the isles shall wait upon me, and on mine arm shall they trust.

Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath: for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment, and they that dwell therein shall die in like manner: but my salvation shall be forever, and my righteousness shall not be abolished.

Hearken unto me, ye that know righteousness, the people in whose heart is my law; fear ye not the reproach of men, neither be ye afraid of their revilings.

For the moth shall eat them up like a garment, and the worm shall eat them like wool: but my righteousness shall be forever, and my salvation from generation to generation.

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.

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.

Mk.13:30 Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done. We are that Generation Jesus is talking about!

31 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away!

God changes not: Mal.3:For I am the Lord, I change not; Jesus is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow, Heb.13:Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever. Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines!

This is exactly what the Roman Catholic Church has done and continues to do, bring in strange doctrines and Dogma, that has not even one scripture to back it up, they are the Nicolaitans, who Jesus hates, for they Lord over the Laity and try to conquer them with their rules and regulations, that they will not even lift a finger to keep! Just as the Sanhedrin Jesus cursed in Mt.23! That is what Niko means, to conquer, and Laitian are the laity the presbytery, the congregation, the assembly the Ecclesia! Jesus is the Head of the Church not man, even the apostles were the least of all these, so they could be a Saint, One who is Holy in the Lord’s Eyes (Mt.20:25-28, if that is what Jesus did, that is what we too must do as well; Mt.23:11-12; Lk.14:11 & 18:9-17, 1 Cor.1-31, the Lord uses base things to confound the wise and mighty! Being one with our Lord in word and in deed, Col.3:1 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God (Euphemism meaning, In all power and authority, 1 Cor.1:24 as seen in Mt.28:18, because God is a Spirit and has no arms or hands and needs no seat, Jn.4:24!).

Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. (And God in Christ 2 Cor.5:19-21)

When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: (Many people are making all kinds of things today their idols, look at how obesity, which is nothing more than Gluttony is running rampant Deu.21:18-21, This is more than a study of Gluttony, it is a story of Covetousness! Not dealing with the flesh nature that wars against the Spirit, in any aspect of our lives! We must mortify this flesh and pick up our cross daily, we were all born with a fatal disease called old age coming at us, so we are dying daily whether we like it or not so we might as well die daily for our LORD of all Jesus Christ and His Gospel!), Today the body is starving due to food not having any nutritional value anymore, with all the processed foods being depleted of nutrients the body needs as they are in a feeding frenzy and the body crying out for more of the nutrients it needs and is not getting! The Body is crying out more and more for the very things it is not receiving, we need to feed it correctly, people need to learn that this body has been bought; it is no longer ours, and that we need to start learning how to take care of our Lord’s Temple, which we are supposed to be! Eat fresh foods and the herbs and leaves are for healing and vegetables as well as fruits, fish and meats all things in Moderation (http://www.openbible.info/topics/moderation & KJV http://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Bible-Verses-About-Moderation/ )! Ro.8:13 Mortify or crucify this flesh and pick up your cross and die daily for Jesus and this Gospel Mk.8:34-38!

 Col.3:For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:

In which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them.

But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.

Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;

10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:

11 Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all! If you are Born-again (A New Creature in Christ Jesus, Gal.3:26-27!) of His Holy Spirit and allow Him to lead you into all His Truths, you will feel no need to go back into the world you came out of, that is full of wickedness as St. John says in 1 Jn.5:19, see 2 Cor.6:14-18 and Heed the words of God, we can be in the world, just not of it!

12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;

13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.

14 And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.

15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.

16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by Jesus!

Jesus told us that repentance and remission of sin is to be preached in His name, this was accomplished as prescribed by Jesus to His Apostles, and carried out in full at 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!

This is that which Joel spoke about in Joel.2:28-ffs, and it is also the fulfillment of Mt.28:19, carried out as told to do there by Jesus; Jesus didn’t say recite this when you baptize someone, no you are to carry it out in word and in deed; what is the Name of the Father? Jesus said He came in the Father’s name Jn.5:43, and the Holy Spirit which is His Spirit, will be called in His name, Jn.14:26, will be sent in Jesus’ name (Jn.15:26)! All things are to be done in Jesus; name Jn.14:14 if we want them to be carried out by our Lord! When we pray and ask for the will of God to be done in our lives as we live according to the leading of His Spirit who has put His word in us, as seen in 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.

When we are born again of the Spirit and His words are put upon our hearts, and always on our minds as we know Jesus is the wisdom and power of God, 1 Cor.1:24; and when we have Jesus’ own Spirit in us, we then have the very mind of God at our finger tips or the very least at our beckoned call (If we are in His Righteousness and then all things will be added unto you Mt.6:33, see Mt.7:7-8. When we cry out Jesus’ name, we get His attention! If we have His name and have put Him on, as called out in Gal.3:26-27, Jn.14:15, IF, you love me keep My Commandments! His Holy word given to us from Gen.1:1 to Rev.22:21 are and is His Will for our lives so we too can live with Him forevermore! This is what Jerimiah was talking about here in Jer.31:31 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: (1 Jn.2: 15-17, 20 & 27):

32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was a husband unto them, saith the Lord:

33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel: After those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. (The Baptism of the Holy Spirit, Lk.11:13!)

34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the Lord: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more!

That is what a true Saint of God will do, they go and sin no more, Jn.5:14, just as Jesus told the adulteress in Jn.8:11; That is what all Saints go and do they keep the Commandments of God, for that is our Righteousness, that is greater than the scribes and Pharisees, Mt.5:Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after Righteousness: for they shall be filled.

Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. This is why the children are the greatest in the Kingdom of God because they have to learn how to be evil and rebellious and they do it by watching others and whatever we sit them in front of and the media has no problem educating them with the filth that is in the world because that is what sells! That is where the problem lies in the world, the love of money, capitalism, as well as materialism, everybody wants what someone else has! They will sell you anything they make as if it is the best thing since sliced bread!

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. Jesus wasn’t talking about putting on a soldier’s uniform and marching off to war either! That’s man’s philosophies of protecting freedom, and liberty and our Democracy, which we don’t really even have at all, it is all an illusion to keep you paying your taxes so they can run you in the ground and they can keep their lifestyles of the Haves and the Have-nots!

10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.

12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

13 Ye are the salt of the earth (Are You?): but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid. (If you live in the Light of the Holy Spirit in you!)

15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil!

18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled!

19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven (Now where do you suppose the least place in the Kingdom of God is? Hint, look here: Lk.16:19-31, it’s on the other side of that Gulf no one can pass over, called hell, it is still in God’s Universe, He is omnipresent!): but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. (They will be as an innocent child and will go with a pure heart and see God!)

20 For I say unto you: That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven! (Our entrance into the Kingdom of God and to be part of His heavenly membership, is conditional on our actions, and how well we have put to practice what He has tried to teach us! If our every word will be scrutinized and we will give an account, everything said in secret will be heard from the rooftops, Mt.10:26-28 & Lk.12:2-5.)

These are those seen here as well, who are submissive and subject to not only Jesus’ words to us as well as the Apostles words given by the inspiration of the Holy Ghost which the angels look into see 1 Cor.11:1-ffs: Subject to authority: Eph.5:24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything.

25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,

27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish!

All of this because we are the bride and Jesus, who is our Groom! He has called us to be a Holy nation and a Chase Bride, who has kept herself for Her Husband, which is what we too are to do in word and in deed, as called out in 1 Jn.5:18 We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.

You see we cannot have the love of God in us unless we have been born again of His Spirit, and that love for Him and for our brethren will cover all sin: Prov.10:12 Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins.

1 Cor.13:1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity (Agape a Godly LOVE!), I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

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

And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.

Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,

Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;

Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;

Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, and endureth all things.

Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.

For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.

10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.

11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity. See Ro.12:1 I 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.

And 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!

For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.

For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office:

So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one member one of another.

Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;

Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching;

Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.

Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.

10 Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;

11 Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;

12 Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;

13 Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality.

14 Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.

15 Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.

16 Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.

17 Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.

18 If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.

19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

20 Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.

21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good (meaning perfect or complete that is found in Righteousness!).

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 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!

No one is saved, until we hear those faithful words we all long to hear: “Well Done My Good and Faithful Servant!” Or they will hear these words: “Mt.24:48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;

49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;

50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,

51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites (Mt.7:15-23): there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth!” (He will be drug off screaming “MY God my God why have you forsaken me?” And the Lord will say Bind him hand and foot and cast this wicked and worthless servant into outer darkness! Mt.7:13-14, 20:16 and 22:14: Many are called but few will be chosen! Mt.25:14-46): One or the other, for the wheat will grow up with the tares, it is up to each of us, which one we are to be (2 Tm.2:19-22)! We all have our own race we have to run (And it must be run by the rules or we get disqualified and we will then have forfeited our chance at Eternal Happiness with being with our Lord and Saviour forevermore!) and it is not over until we die and our body goes to its rest at the catching away and our souls go to be with the Lord, for He is not the Lord of the dead but of the living, Mk.12:27! Ecc.12:7 and Heb.12:9 and without righteousness that exceeds the scribes and Pharisees, who knew the word of the Lord by heart but lacked faith, many of us know the word not so much and think faith (It used to be “Saved by Grace and Faith Alone”, now it is just believe in the name of Jesus and that is enough, WRONG! Jn.3:3-8 says so!), alone is going to carry them into the Promised Land! It will not, our faith that is true Faith that is Godly Faith; is only found when the word of God lives in us (Jn.15:3 see 1-ffs here as well.), and we too bear Jesus’ fruits and some of us even bear some marks we got on His behalf Gal.6:17, Jn.14:Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. Jesus wants us to walk as He walked and taught us in His Truths, while He lived with us in the material realms! Every Spiritual aspect of God’s Word, was put into our material perception in Jesus while He walked on Earth with us, making Him God with us, Mt.1:23. Is.7:14-15! So that we would know it was of God’s doing! For there is nothing impossible with Him!

We either walk in His Will, which is His words to us, or we will not only find His wrath, but we will be eternally lost and separated for His presence for all eternity, as it was seen in the Parable about the Rich man and Lazarus: Lk.16:19 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:

20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,

21 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.

22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;

23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.

25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.

26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us that would come from thence.

27 Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father’s house:

28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.

29 Abraham saith unto him: They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.

30 And he said: Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.

31 And he said unto him: If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

We get one chance to get this right, we do not get to come back and try it again, as it is taught in other religions of the East! We have only one chance to get all that Jesus wants us to do for Him as seen in Jn.3:8, unless we get to come back after doing what He wanted as Elijah did when He came back as John the Baptist, Mt.17:12, Mk.9:12-13!

We have to be blown wherever He wants us to go so we too can bear our own cross and to take His yoke that is not heavy Mt.11:28-30. When His Spirit is helping us to carry our cross and to go where He wants us to go for Him to win another soul and to preach this Gospel, no cross is too heavy to bear for Him and yes it is your job to have a witness and to bear a cross or burden for lost souls, after all you were one too at one time or another. This is what the Holy Spirit is for, to give you all the words of the Farther, to teach them who speak as IF they know the way, but have no form of godliness in them to speak of; 2 Tm.3:5, for they are forever learning but never coming to the Truth that is only found in Jesus!

It is up to us to teach them a more perfect way, Gal.6:1-10, Jms.5:19-20: See Ac.18:24 And a certain Jew named Apollos, born at Alexandria, an eloquent man, and mighty in the scriptures, came to Ephesus.

25 This man was instructed in the way of the Lord; and being fervent in the spirit, he spake and taught diligently the things of the Lord, knowing only the baptism of John: (The baptism of repentance, see Ac.19:1-7 as well.).

26 And he began to speak boldly in the synagogue: whom when Aquila and Priscilla had heard, they took him unto them, and expounded unto him the way of God more perfectly (See Ac.19:1-7). See 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.

As well as 2 Tm.2:22 Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart. (Works of Repentance, Ac.26:19-20!)

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.

Finally this one and I am done: 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.

Who will separate the wheat from the tares, which the Angels will gather the Tares and take them to be burned in the wrath of God’s anger and fire for all who disobey His words to us, for His Words are His Will, given to us by Holy men of God as they were moved or carried along in the Holy Spirit 2 Pt.1:19-21, 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.

We either gather with Him and help spread this glorious Gospel, or we only deceive ourselves and will be found worshipping a god of our own vain imaginations, if we are not carrying out all that He has told us to do in faith and the love of God, to be found a worthy servant, who has gained of the talent He gave to us, Mt.25:14 For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods.

15 And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey.

16 Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents.

17 And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two.

18 But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord’s money.

19 After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them.

20 And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more.

21 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

22 He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them.

23 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

24 Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed:

25 And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.

26 His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed:

27 Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury.

28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents.

29 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.

30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

31 When 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:

32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:

33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

34 Then 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:

35 For 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:

36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?

38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?

39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

40 And 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.

41 Then 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:

42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:

43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee a hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?

45 Then 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.

46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

With all this said, if our faith doesn’t line up with our works as called out in James chapter 2, we are still in big trouble for we have then left something undone haven’t we, See Rev.2:4-5: We then have not been found to be walking in Spirit and in His Truths have we, Jn.4:23-24 & Rev.14:13?

Then what can we expect from our God: In the End? The answer is found in Hebrews chapter 10:1 For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect.

For then would they not have ceased to be offered? Because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins (Jer.31:31-34).

But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year.

For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.

Wherefore when he (LORD, 1 Tm.3:16) cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me: (Of a Virgin!)

In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure.

Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me, Jn.5:39-44, from Gen.1:1 to Rev.22:21!) to do thy will, O God! (To finish His work, Jn.4:34-38. Who can finish God’s own work, but God Himself, now robed in the flesh! Mt.1:23, Emmanuel.)

Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure therein; which are offered by the law;

Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first that he may establish the second.

10 By which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. (As well as ours at baptism, we go down into the watery grave and are raised brand new, a new creation, 2 Cor.5:14-ffs!)

11 And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:

12 But this man (Jesus), after he had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God; (In all power and authority, Mt.28:18!)

13 From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool. (Ps.110:1, see Ro.9:1 I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost,

That I have great heaviness and continual sorrow in my heart.

For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh:

Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises;

Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came who is over all God, blessed forever. In Jesus name Amen and Amen!).

14 For by one offering he hath perfected forever them that are sanctified.

15 Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before,

16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;

17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.

18 Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.

19 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus,

20 By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;

21 And having a high priest over the house of God;

22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.

23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised);

24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:

25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

26 For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,

27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.

28 He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:

29 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden underfoot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?

30 For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.

31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

32 But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions;

33 Partly, whilst ye were made a gazingstock both by reproaches and afflictions; and partly, whilst ye became companions of them that were so used.

34 For ye had compassion of me in my bonds, and took joyfully the spoiling of your goods, knowing in yourselves that ye have in heaven a better and an enduring substance.

35 Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward.

36 For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.

37 For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.

38 Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.

39 But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.

Are you one who has tasted and seen that God is good…for a while and then went back into the world that lies in its wickedness (Mt.13:1-23), for if you are friends with this world, you are still an enemy of God: See James:

Jms.4:1 From whence come wars and fightings among you? Come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members? (Gal.5:17; Ro.8:1-13 & Eph.6:10-20, pray for one another to carry this Gospel to all nations and then the end will come! Mt.24:14).

Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not.

Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. (Prov.15:8, 21:27, and Prov.28:9, the sacrifice of prayer of a sinner is an abomination, and offering that is tainted in the eyes of God and will not be accepted, unless, it is the prayer seeking Repented Forgiveness so they can go a new direction and make a new covenant with our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, Lk.24:47, Ac.2:38-40, Ac.4:12, and 2 Cor.6:14-18, the plan of Salvation, Jn.3:3-8 seen in 1 Cor.6:11, to complete Justification in God’s eyes; If you have a pure heart, otherwise you can do these things as a ritual or by tradition and it will never do you any good at all; if your heart is not right with God, for He sees to the very heart of all men!)

Ye 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!

Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain: The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy?

But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble!

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you!

Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded!

Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness.

10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up!

We are to joy that we have power over the devil and his fallen helpers (They who believe a lie, material and immaterial entities), who are the demons, that are here to cause trouble and even to work and do God’s bidding, for they are still His servants that He created and He can make do whatever He wants without them even knowing it, for they have been given strong delusions as well! They think they have control and even rule over this world and that Satan is the “Prince of the Air” of this world, but all he is, is the fallen son of the Morning Star! Jesus is the Morning Star, Rev.22:16 the root of King David! Who will come to set up His Millennium reign, but the hundred dollar question is this…Will you be one of the few who will be ruling alongside of Jesus as seen in Rev.2:23 And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works! See Rev.22:12, as well!

24 But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden.

25 But that which ye have already, hold fast till I come.

26 And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:

27 And 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.

28 And I will give him the Morning Star. (See Jesus is the Day Star of 2 Pt.1:19-21 as well as the Morning Star, the root of David, Rev.22:16.)

29 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

If we will have every word ever spoken scrutinized and judged Mt.12:36-37, think how much more our every deed will be looked upon, especially after we have come into covenant with our LORD! Remember many times in the Bibles the word communicate doesn’t mean to speak to someone it means to communicate a kindness, or even to have communion with them, as in fellowship or to do a good deed, have works of good fruits! Check out which was the Greek word was used in that verse!

I will leave you with this, from Jesus Himself: Rev.2:4-5, we need to keep all of His words before us and always on our minds and in our hearts as well as our actions, 2 Tm.3:14-17, if it was good enough advice for a young preacher, it is good enough advice for all of us as well! Walk in the Light of the LORD Jesus! Go in peace!

Remember what Samuel said to Saul! It is better to obey than to keep continually sacrificing for continue repentances, 1 Sam.15:1-35! Nt.4:4 & Jn.8:51 repeatedly throughout the Old Testament and the New Testament, God changes NOT! Mal.3:6 & Heb.13:8.

Man Lost His Soul not Knowing the Definition to Two Words!

   Let us begin this study with a short heartfelt and meaningful prayer, that we would have the Lord lead us into all righteousness and that we could learn to fulfil all righteousness in all that He has intended for us to do with this life that He gave to us to live to its fullest, in Jesus’ name Amen.

I think any sermon or theological paper should always start with a cause and effect principle or structure to it, we see this with almost all the stories in the Bible. The stories present their case and then show the outcome to all that transpires; the cause and the effect principle. Now let me get directly to the point of my Lesson, when man lost not only his soul due to him losing his ability to know what the true meaning to this one word is: UNDERSTANDING!! And the other word we will discuss in the latter half of this discussion, Grace.

Now let me get to the cause of this situation that man has gotten himself in, when God made the earth and the heavens He used His wisdom and His knowledge to create everything to His specifications; this was the first example in the purest form of UNDERSTANDING. He did this because He had the ability, that all man is still desperately needing today; for this one ingredient or ability: God did all these things because He wanted a relationship with His creation; the ability to interact with a creation that was eternally evolving in its own direction, by mans mistakes (due to sin), up to this point I might add. Look I have history to back up this claim! Man’s empires always fall and they self-destruct mainly from the inside, just as the events in the Garden of Eden. It is just a matter of time before we get our just rewards; either good or bad. When man lost the ability to discern wisdom and knowledge and the word understanding, he lost his salvation to eternal life with his God our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ.

Man can and is indeed searching for all knowledge, we have almost countless opportunities to search out knowledge at a great price I might add, look at the cost of Higher Education these days and it keeps going higher each year. All of this is to no avail if we do not learn again the meaning of one word. The true meaning of the word Understanding!!  Let us look now at the true definition of the word understanding that our scholars have given to us: Understanding (also called intellection) is a psychological process related to an abstract or physical object, such as a person, situation, or message whereby one is able to think about it and use concepts to deal adequately with that object. Understandingis a relation between the knower and an object of understanding. Understanding implies abilities and dispositions with respect to an object of knowledge sufficient to support *intelligent behavior*. An understanding is the limit of a conceptualization. To understand something is to have conceptualized it to a given measure (but the hidden truth is still lacking in definition here). Now I can go into much deeper relationships to understanding for it goes into the realms of psychological, physiological, as well as every theology or any other doctrine that has ever been taught as well because we are to use understanding in every aspect of our lives but we don’t.

But the plain and simple truths I’m trying to relate is; just how far man has gotten away from the true ability to understand. The key to my writing this is to try and make apparent what man has to do to become one with our God, Lord and Saviour again. Our main objective in this life has changed from what it used to be when God created us. The simplest way to show you is in the Garden of Eden, when Adam and Eve first stumbled because they forgot understanding; the ability to practice (use wisdom and knowledge) what they have learned and put it to practical use (to have understanding when we use what we have learned and have declared as wise and profitable to the body of man)! Gen.2:15And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.16And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: 17But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. Now man at this point had all knowledge that was due him in order to live forever in light of God’s sovereignty. For man was not naïve as some presume that he was, for God had put in man the ability to know and to have wisdom as well as understand-ing, for God made man in His image, so we must assume the first man, Adam that was made in His (God’s) likeness had to be a perfect man, with all knowledge, except for good and evil; Gen.1:27So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. This is the reason God condemned them because they blatantly refused God’s perfect way and perfect know-ledge to gain more knowledge at the cost of understanding. (Man put his wants ahead of God’s, this equals rebellion and sin, from which all sin originates.) When Adam and Eve stepped out on their own in search for knowledge that could be gained from eating the Devine Fruit at the cost of UNDERSTANDING; they created sin as well as death which are the effect of sin, at a cost to all mankind, to pay for eternity!!

Now man is just as obnoxious and arrogant today toward God as he was in Adam and Eve’s day! The plain and simple truth is that man in all his so called sophistication has lost himself in his own stupidity, by being arrogant, and not humbling himself before God. For the truth of the matter is this: Ecc.12:13Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man!!!  I just love the simplicity of the Bible, don’t you?

For man can indeed search and acquire: Ecc.12:9And moreover, because the preacher was wise, he still taught the people knowledge; yea, he gave good heed, and sought out, and set in order many proverbs.10The preacher sought to find out acceptable words: and that which was written was upright, even words of truth.11The words of the wise are as goads, and as nails fastened by the masters of assemblies, which are given from one shepherd. (Refer to Ephesians 4 to One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism, Our Lord Almighty’s church!) 12And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh. Why for this one reason (Eph.5:17-21): Unless we do as God wants; we are in perfect conflict to His nature and death is our only resource in which we build upon in this case to our final outcome in this matter. Ecc.12:8Vanity of vanities, saith the preacher; all is vanity. Because we will all come to know Him sooner or later and sooner is better than later! Ecc.12:7Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it; and we all will stand and give an account for ourselves to God our creator our Lord Jesus Christ.

Remember earlier did you pick up on the part of the definition that leads to salvation?? I’ll show you one more time: Understanding implies abilities and dispositions with respect to an object of knowledge sufficient to **support intelligent behavior**: A perfect example of cause and effect relationships in which if used correctly gives eternal life! Which leads us to another cause and effect situation; the one when we receive truth and her twin sister’s knowledge and wisdom: for they are the effect of receiving God as our Savior which is true understanding which is the cause or the originator of the perfect ability to do as our Father originally wanted His children to walk in His light in perfect faith, of God’s will for us!! The cause in this case is receiving the Lord as our savior and we are baptized in the Water in His Name and Reborn in His likeness by receiving His Spirit: we gain wisdom, knowledge, and truth and strength in the Spirit to carry out the effect of receiving God; which is true understanding which is the ability to follow God’s command-ments to the letter. This leads to a chain reaction of causes and effects that proceed from the father: When we draw closer to Him He draws closer to us, as long as we seek His righteousness: Matt.6:33But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

This entire world is based and structured on the bases of cause and effects: Its God’s way; when He gave the first commandments, to tend the garden and to obey Him. He put a curse of death on man if he didn’t obey Him this is the effect of not obeying Him. This is primary and fundamental theology at its foundational truths. Man is the one who makes all things complicated with his trying to be smarter than God. 1Cor1: 19For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.20Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this world? Hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? 21For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God; it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

Man has gotten to the point that he has messed himself up and this world so drastically by miss prioritizing himself right into oblivion in both ways: Spiritually and Physically!! Why is this so hard for man to see, because he has lost the ability to know who God is and understand (keep His commandments) His ways! The cause and effect of this is what happened when sin entered this world with Satan as sins advocate. God set the dimensions of reality so simple that man just can’t grasp it because of one reason: He wants to be the creator instead of the creation!!

Answer to man’s problem:

Turn not away from the Lord:  For He is in His living word, His Holy Bible!

  We can use a safe and time tested manor of revelation and follow all that God has given us in His irrefutable scriptures (2Tim3:16, 17) if we believe one scripture, then we are and must believe all of them, and interpret them correctly so that each one will harmonizes all the rest, to the glory of God: And the effects of that will be life eternal! When we follow God’s words we see He tells us not to turn to the Right Hand or the Left; when we do something other than that, its effect, is eternal death. Really too simple for man to grasp; I can only imagine why man cannot! Somewhere man has gotten into some idiotic tendencies of self destruction for temporary gains; instead of looking at the big picture of the eternal plan of God. I mentioned earlier about mans inability to prioritize, because we all know how smart we have gotten and how mans knowledge is growing so fast we cannot even keep up with the written word being published in book form: That book with all its facts has already become obsolete before it hits the schools. But I can guarantee one thing right now; all the knowledge we need to know for life eternal has already been published and needs no correction or addition; for John and Paul both said the same thing in different words: Paul said in Gal1:8But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.9As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed: and John in Rev.22: 19And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

Prioritizing

  Man has lost his priority of God and His written word, somewhere along the line of man’s psychological, physiological, and philological or whateverological evolution (Prov.17: 24Wisdom is before him that hath understanding; but the eyes of a fool are in the ends of the earth.)  Man is always looking and never seeing what is right in front of him. He, man that is, has stepped off the chosen path and went to the right hand or the left it doesn’t matter. Man has gotten off out of the wide place that God gives His people to dwell in, that is mentioned somewhere in the Psalms (18:19), somewhere in His irrefutable words 2Tim3:16, 17! Man with all his education has become and still is a child in God’s eyes and perceptions of him. For God said that He would become the rock of offence, but it is better to stumble and get up while we have a chance and receive Him as our Lord and Saviour before He comes and crushes this worldly educated man to powder and back to the dust of this earth, with his highly educated soul being put in the “Lake of Fire”!!  Man as smart as he is, is not going to win in his argument to the Lord if he pleads ignorance with this scripture for help: Luke12:48But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes (For this scripture is for those who truly have not heard this gospel message. That we will discuss later in the “Theory of Justification by Works”.). 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. Many think this is a way out from knowing all there is to know of God and still have eternal life with Him just by trying to be as perfect as a man can be with man’s worldly, carnal ethics and principles.

This is man’s folly again because this is man’s reasoning for if man truly knew God he would know that all God really wants of man is man’s love. If man truly loved God, man would seek Him with all his heart, mind, spirit and soul as the first commandment told all of God’s children to do back in Exodus, to sanctify them-selves and become His peculiar people. If man truly was in love with his creator he would have every one of our schools seeking Him in all His glory for all the people on this earth to come so that they could come to know Him. Man must be under some assumption that he can do as he wishes and worship God any old way man chooses to and be counted as worthy, but if man worships God in man’s definition of worship, man is still considered a non believer in God’s eyes. For God came to earth for two reason to bring salva-tion to the lost and forgiveness of sins, by bringing a division between those that will receive His word and those that think this Bible is foolishness. Luke12:51Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division: 52For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three. This is the effect of God’s teaching, life or death just one of the two that’s all there is.

Somehow when man gets more revelations about his environment and the world around him he thinks that this is all important work over what we have already learned from God Himself. For somehow man has lost the first thing we were to learn in the Garden of Eden and throughout the Bible, the first principle lesson was to Fear God, priority one!! Why? Matt16:26For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? Man has nothing God wants but man’s love and devotion, for if God wants anything at all He simply calls it out and it is. One of the things God cannot do is make us Love Him, it has to be a freewill offering, and how is man going to show his love for God. Does man really think he can negotiate his way out with God or pay God off with some good works? God gave us all we need; He gave us all the things we need in this life to be comfortable and to make everyone of His creations have the ability to help his brother out and to help his brother to become complete in the Lord, as well, as in life with all of his material needs being met and man’s Spiritual needs being fulfilled!

Man’s inability to learn what’s truly important!

     2Tim3:7Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. This is because man has lost the ability to have true understanding that only comes from God when we are washed in the blood of Jesus.

Now let us take a theological examination of how we are to achieve perfection in our world that has been given us in our studies of Eschatology, which is the study of end time scriptures that relate to the end of this age and in His sacred word the Holy Scriptures for the things that must be to come Matt.24:14.  

  I have noticed the word turn in its relation to God’s will for us, there are over two and half pages in my concordance with scriptures with the word turn in them, or an derivative based off the word turn such as turned, turnest, turneth and turning. Out of all these variations of the word turn we see mostly two objects of study, someone is either turning to God or turning away from God for his death sentence. I find one central theme in this Holy Bible given to us by God Himself. This Bible is God’s diary of what to do and what not to do, to be with or without Him. Hopefully it will be the former if we will receive His word in faith believing in 2Tim3:16All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: & 17Thatthe man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

We are still in an issue of priorities

   With this being said we see why man is so far from God, man couldn’t see Him (God) if he was looking through the world’s most powerful telescope or the highest powered electron microscope. Because man has forgotten to fear God and that there is an ever present belief that this Holy Book is from man’s imagination. Another thing man presumes is that God is somewhere in a remote area of Heaven that only God knows and man can’t be seen by God. Man acts as though God doesn’t even exist or is oblivious to our actions on earth. Man is unaware that God is all around him at all times and is omnipresent, omnipotent, omniscience!

Let me clue some of you into a fact, if you study history at all it will prove the existence of God’s irrefutable words, these words that are God breathed through His Holy Spirit filled scribes, prophets, disciples, and apostles! Today’s scientist and archaeologists are proving more and more on each and every dig that the Bible is factual indeed and is trust worthy as a book to the development of man’s civilization and man’s society and fundamental framework.

Types of people

   We see in the Bible that there have always been two distinct societies, one group that fear God and one group in which whatever man’s power can get for him, regardless of his brother’s needs: We can see this as far back in the book of Gen.6: 5And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.6And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.

And I can say with all confidence God is getting to the same point with man right now, because of our lack of fear, concern, and the ability to keep our word, even after we make a pledge, oath, or covenant; like at repentance, because we lack understanding. When you understand His word and His commandments you are supposed to keep them and carry them out to His coming!! Not just the ones you seem to think are the important ones, or convenient for you, for they all carry the same death penalty, remember the cause and effect syndrome. John14:15 If you love Me you will keep My commandments. Just as in the Old Testament Jesus is the same today, yesterday and yes He was there in the Old Testament as well as in the New Testament, look to John8:58Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am. You might ask for proof of this, so we look to John19:37 which comes from Zach12: 10And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me (Jesus is in God as God is in Jesus as God is manifested in the flesh 1Tim3:16, otherwise God would have told the prophet to say Him that they have pieced, for Jesus was and has always been in the mind of God so that He could be our propitiation for sin) 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’s good enough for me to belief that Jesus was present then as well as right now and is all around us as we read this request for God’s people to come back to know Him: He is next to us reading this as well, so I had better let Him do the writing.

Back to two types of people; this is why there was slavery, and the only reason there was slavery was because God was trying to teach people His ways, and if you didn’t catch the drift of what He was teaching He was going to put you in a mandatory school of the Israelites, His chosen people that bear His name, His priests’ and they were to teach you; this was the first “Home Bible Studies Course”. Because of man’s abominations and worshipping nature and the physical environment of God’s creation the universe with the Sun and Moon and Stars being deities because God made His universe so majestically that man’s brain couldn’t fathom what they were seeing, but primitive man felt that he had an inherited a since that he was to worship something instead of someone (God in the flesh Jesus), he just couldn’t figure it out on his own until God showed Himself to His chosen people, the true righteous children from Adam and Eve: I’ll tell you why God looked to Adam and Eve’s descendants 1Sam16:7 for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.

So many men and so many styles but one inspiration and the tone of one writer!

   And on the topic of a man writing the Bible no one man could have had that good of an imagination or the comprehension to write such a perfect work of literature! Besides that when God’s recorded word gets destroyed God tells the writer to write it again! We can see this in Jeremiah36: 22Now the king sat in the winter house in the ninth month: and there was a fire on the hearth burning before him. 23And it came to pass, that when Jehudi had read three or four leaves, he cut it with the penknife, and cast it into the fire that was on the hearth, until all the roll was consumed in the fire that was on the hearth. 24Yet they were not afraid, nor rent their garments, neither the king, nor any of his servants that heard all these words. 25Nevertheless Elnathan and Delaiah and Gemariah had made intercession to the king that he would not burn the roll: but he would not hear them. 26But the king commanded Jerahmeel the son of Hammelech, and Seraiah the son of Azriel, and Shelemiah the son of Abdeel, to take Baruch the scribe and Jeremiah the prophet: but the LORD hid them. 27Then the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, after that the king had burned the roll, and the words which Baruch wrote at the mouth of Jeremiah, saying, 28Take thee again another roll, and write in it all the former words that were in the first roll, which Jehoiakim the king of Judah hath burned.

   This certainly sounds like man today doesn’t it? Man doesn’t like what God has to say so man just ignores God’s words; the one Book that will keep his eternal soul from the Lake of Fire and man disregards it as folk lore.

Receiving all of God’s Holy Words

  Deu.5:31But 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.32Ye 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.33Ye 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 (that man may have eternal life in the new age to come, this was the promise given to Abraham) in the land which ye shall possess.

Simplicity is in the Truth

   This message is just as simple as it was back then; keep your promises to God turn not to the right hand or to the left, but walk in the light of the Lord. Just as God told Abram in Gen17: 1And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect. 2And I will make my covenant between Me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly. 3And Abram fell on his face (True fear of the Lord, just how many people do that today?): and God talked with him, saying, 4As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations.5Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.

Indeed this happened; some more irrefutable proof, but I have come up with my own proverb: Fools know nothing and seek even more! But the prudent find wisdom and the fear of the Lord!

Vows and the Strength of words

    A teleological argument, or argument from design, attributes the existence of order and direction in nature to some kind of purpose, thereby essentially proving the existence of God. (The word “teleological” is derived from the Greek word telos, meaning “end” or “purpose”.) More generally, teleology is the supposition that there is purpose or directive principle in the works and processes of nature. Immanuel Kant called this argument the physico–theological proof. Refer to Romans1:18-21

This is just one example of man’s attempt to press the point of their own intelligent superiority as to know that there is in fact a God and that He must have ordered the operations of the universe. So man out of his own interpretations of his own intelligence can discuss something into existence, for they are not allowed to go on faith and just believe, because this is against the principles of philosophy and to some degree some areas of physiology and psychology as well, depending on which position man decides to take according to his interpretations of his environment, realism, naturalism, mysticism, and the old time favorite atheism.

Power of the God’s word

I know that people as long as history has been written down on sheepskin or some other parchment, man has always made a living and a way of life for others, out of trying to convince the major public how brilliant they are by baffling people with so many words that their audiences’ can’t remember what they originally started talking about in the first place like right now. A bunch of words to do about nothing! This to me is, psychology, physiology and philosophy and a few otherologies; I love the old saying that when we are discussing the Bible we don’t need to try and defend it, the Bible is like a 2,000 lb. bull you just let it go and it will take care of itself.

Honesty and Ethics

   We see the problem with words and their meanings is this; that words in themselves are only as powerful as the person or people or country or whoever spoke them into existence. Many people have lost the importance to how words work, when we speak them, we are supposed to mean what we say, and the people hearing the words are to comprehend our speech, or else we are all just foreigners trying to talk to each other, even in the event we are speaking the same language, if we do not know what the other said, people get wrong impressions and sometimes wars break out in the wake of misunderstanding even when it was entirely accidental!

Breaking of our Vows

  We need to understand what we say and we are to back it up with actions (understanding), real physical movements, to place the word into a since of reality, this is true understanding, of what we read or what we spoke or what we have written. The only way we can do this is, is if we believe or better yet and in another word for believe is to have faith in that which or what was talked about will be either true or false or will take place or will not, and the only other class of thought on the matter is that it is must yet be unknown, as to the outcome or to have no comprehension of the thought trying to be relayed upon to the other person.

True innocence of God’s Presence in Creation

  The case of not knowing the Lord in true naivety; is only possible if the Lord’s word has never been read, heard, or revealed in intuitions, but that is an impossibility, for God has caused us to inherit an umption to worship good over evil, just by observing nature around him (man) that God put in his (man’s) sub con-sciousness, that was inherited from Adam and Eve. And even in this case if man has never at all heard of God; he is still not lost because God will judge that man according to the Law of Moses; now if the man has never heard the Law of Moses brings about this situation: That man’s heart: If that man had never maliciously harmed good with evil and always did good in return for evil he could inherit the kingdom, because he lived according to God’s commandments without knowing God in his (this man’s) true naivety Romans2: 11For there is no respect of persons with God.12For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law; 13For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.14For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves:15Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another ; 16In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.* Because God knows beforehand who will except Him or not, and this man had never heard of the sin of Adam and Eve, so this man will be judged as according to the times of before Abraham and before the Law was; were there was no law established from God to man’s behavior except not to shed innocent blood of another man, Gen.9:6. But what if a man never heard of Adam or Eve or even of the Bible?  John6:44 & 65No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day. & 65And he said “Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father”. Now this only goes as long as that innocent man had never had a bad thought as well and had no thoughts of a situation of a wrong doing and wished it fulfilled, Matt5:28But I say unto you: That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

The likely hood of this ideal situation ever happening is entirely possible but highly UN likely, because Jesus said if we lust after a woman we have just committed adultery with her in our hearts, so we see that the mind of man is the seat of evil and sin. But on the sin issue with all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God issue and all have sinned from Adam on and is inherited, I would like to point out this scripture in evidence of what I call  “Justification of works without knowledge of God”. Prov.24:12If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not he that pondereth the heart consider it? And he that keepeth thy soul, doth not he know it? And shall not he render to every man according to his works?  This was speaking after the Law given to Moses! But I would like to point out one more point to those who have never heard of God and have never seen a missionary, or another white, black or whatever RACE OF MAN; one in which brings forth the Gospel of Jesus Christ, if one has never heard of God or the Gospel, God will in fact judge according to His righteousness, just as he did before or after Gen.9 and further on to Sodom and Gomorra, because the son is not at fault for not hearing the gospel: For the Father is at blame and the Son will not be judged according to the Father’s sin, Jer.31: 29In those days they shall say no more, The fathers have eaten a sour grape, and the children’s teeth are set on edge. 30But every one shall die for his own iniquity: every man that eateth the sour grape, his teeth shall be set on edge. But this theory of “Justification of works without knowledge of God”  is just that for according to My Bible this should never take place because of this one scripture; Matt.24:14And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. And I might add that according to my perceptions that the Lord has given me of this world; that it cannot be much longer for all things of this age to end. Due to this one reason that this entire world has indeed heard of Christmas and if they haven’t they soon will hear of Christ when they ask what is Christmas. Jesus has already told many that Gabriel has the trumpet to his lips and is ready to sound the coming of the Lord!

Morality, Ethics, Honesty and the Fear of the Lord

   But when man puts his name on anything spoken or written he is putting his honor on the line, and people have lost the since of what that means anymore in today’s society. We see this with divorce rates as high as they are and as well as so many so called Christians. I call them so called Christians for a reason, when I read my Bible it says we are to do all of His commandments: Precept upon precept, Line upon Line.

The first order of business after salvation is preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ nailed to the cross; crucified for our sins. Jesus died; He poured his blood out on the ground at Calvary, for you and me, so our sins will be covered, seen never again, Jesus was the answer to the curse of sin we inherited from Adam. That curse of sin that got put on all man for this was the total cost of his sin and because of the Law of Moses that requires a death of a sinless sacrifice for atonement: The blood of a sinless sacrifice; from the Lord our God; for the propitiation of sin forever. Jesus buried for three days rose again under His own power (authority given by the Holy Spirit) or authority because He was God in the flesh and yet He was the firstfruits of man (son of God the flesh) unto the Lord and is sitting on the throne of God because He told us He was the Father, when you have see Me you have seen the Father and from hence forth you have seen Him. John 10:30I and my Father are one (as one as Spirit and flesh can get joined together still two substances, immortal man and Holy Spirit, still One Person Though!). Refer to John4:24.

So the whole point to this subject that I’m expounding on is this, people are weak and cannot keep their word entirely; even if they keep it physically, they will break it mentally. We in this world are all but lost without our salvation coming from Jesus our savior. Man is incapable of saving himself. We all have come short of the glory of God because of this right here the cause: Romans2:20Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin. Jesus actually came for two very different reasons to bring life forever and to bring condemnation to the world at the same time.John15:22If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin.

Repentance, Baptism in the Water and in the Spirit

   Listen up; right here is the big reason why people can’t keep their promises that they have spoken to God at repentance. For one they followed someone else’s oath and just recited whatever that person felt needed to be said. That man had no idea of what your sins or your mental attitudes are towards God and where you need to come to meet Him. He had no idea of what needed to be repented of in the first place, that is between you and God. Repentance is a private ordeal and is to be entered into reverently, for this is oath time; we will either live or die by what we say to Him right here in repentance if we don’t live up to our promise to follow Him. We will burn in the Lake of Fire over what we do in the presence of God when we step forward to come to know Him as our personal savior. For Jesus said if we don’t pick up our cross and follow Him daily we will not be worthy of Him.Luke9:23And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

See Jesus said four things here: 1 come after Him (as to imitate) 2 let him deny himself (this means to but the flesh down and humble yourself and walk in the Spirit) 3 pick up your cross (have a burden for your brother, love for the sinner as well as the saint) 4 and follow Me. (means just that to be a servant or a minister to all of mankind and to be a slave to Jesus Christ and let Him be your master, the King of Kings in your life! If you can’t do this then you don’t love Him and do not deserve His Love. Matt.10:38And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. (These are those who have not obtained salvation in the proper way and are still in sin! Still walking in a worldly manor, and not reaching or witnessing to the lost, the gospel of Jesus Christ and of God’s Grace) You can worship and think you’re saved and have all the emotions to go along with being with God but lack to true joy of knowing Him in the Spirit in which the rest comes from, in knowing God our Lord and savior Jesus with the Love of the Holy Spirit dwelling inside you, giving you the perfect love of God. For man is to worship God in Spirit and in truth, because His Spirit is the Spirit of Truth (john16:13); John4:24God is a Spirit (an essence and cannot die) (not a true physical person of flesh, bone and blood which holds the life in it, in which one can actually die): and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth (true righteousness apart from the carnality of this world). For if characteristics of a person or titles or acts of achievements where persons then God would be countless and we would have no way of stopping at just three of His manifestations as in the “Trinity of God”.

Costs of Salvation

    The anguish the Lord felt the night He prayed relays all that needs to be said, for His sweat was as blood, so what did Jesus do, He prayed even more fervently, because the flesh is weak and must submit to the spirit. Luke22:44And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.

The Price that we must pay to be His: Matt.19:21, Luke12:33 & Mark10:21

  First I’ve heard it preached this salvation is free, which is not true at all! It will cost you all that you have! God is looking for disciples, stewards, and ministers, prophets, servants, administrators, etc. Those of us, who are willing to give their all to Him, forsaking all others to follow Him. Matt.10: 32Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. 33But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. 34Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. 35For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 36And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household. 37He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.38And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.39He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it. 40He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me. 41He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward. 42And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.

Jesus came to cause dissention, to bring father against son, mother against daughter, but the bottom line is this: We must seek Him with all we have, for He will take nothing less, did He not give it all on the cross at Calvary? He will take nothing less than all of our hearts, minds, spirits, souls, and strength! Nothing short of full devotion is required and is a must if we are to be His children.

Falling by the wayside

  This is the biggest reason why we have so many so called Christians living in today’s society, for one they have no clue to actually what is the cost and are not living a righteous life in Christ Jesus. They have never read the entire Bible all the way through for themselves, and studied it on a daily bases and the other reason is that they have not been washed in the blood of Jesus or even baptized in His name as required in Acts 2:38, 39 or even receive the Holy Ghost! Unless you receive the Holy Ghost how is one to interpret the Bible correctly without the Spirit leading the way. Many people today just think repentance is feeling sorry for what has been done in the past, but that is just the beginning of repentance. Full repentance is a turning AWAY from ERROR back into the path of RIGHTEOUSNESS. And then not getting out of the path to the right hand or the left, for narrow is the way and strait is the gate: Being a Christian takes a bona fide effort, Jesus never said it was going to be easy, if it were easy everybody would be one, kind of like today’s Modern-day Emerging Church!  Here’s all I have to say to this emerging church; Isa.28: 15Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves: 16Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.

He that believeth shall not make haste

  I’m not for putting off getting saved; all I’m saying is do your due diligence, for the scripture says work out your own salvation and you had better do it in all reverence and with fear in your heart, for I would not want to fall into the hands of an angry God Heb.10:29-31; Phip.2:12: This is where people get into all kinds of trouble, first they never truly repented, second they were never baptized in the only name given by which salvation comes, Acts4:12 and knowing who Jesus is as in John8:24  I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, (God in the flesh refer to John20:28 if Jesus was not God He would have corrected Thomas right then and there. 1Tim3:16 & Col2:8-10 as well as 1john5:20)  ye shall die in your sins.

When one is water baptized in the proper way he may present himself before the Lord and receive the Holy Spirit with the evidences given in Acts2, for the Lord is the same yesterday today and forever Heb.13:8 from Heb.1:12 from Isaiah40:8 8The grasses withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand forever. If one is worthy and the Lord has searched them and found them fit; the Lord sometimes baptizes in the Spirit before the water baptism but you must be born of the water and the Spirit before you can truly worship in Spirit and in truth; John3:3 & 5: 3Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.5Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. Matt.3:15 so that all righteousness maybe fulfilled. This is part of the operations of God that must be completed and fulfilled in order to come into His kingdom.

If you have not the Holy Ghost and do not speak in tongues you are none of still His: Rom.8: 9But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man has not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. For example we use Peter and Cornelius in Acts10: 44While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word. 45And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost. 46For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then answered Peter, 47Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we? 48And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord (Jesus’ name). Then prayed they him to tarry certain days.

Die to self and the Rebirth

  The rebirth is just that; we die to self and receive Jesus’ Spirit and walk in light (likeness) of His truth of His ways as in His life. We no longer look at this world as our level of righteousness, for if we do not judge ourselves against His infallible word we will be lost as before, for the world cannot receive His Spirit for it is foolishness to them: (today’s emerging church believes we all get baptized with the Spirit as soon as we come up out of the water but this is not true, the evidences of tongues was given as a sign for just that reason so someone would know when they receive it: Trust me for years I thought I was baptized in the Spirit until it truly happened, and the gift of tongues, and prophesy as well as other signs came upon me.)  John14:16, 17: 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. When we get baptized in His Spirit we receive power from on high (the fire) that enables us to stay in His word, when we put the flesh down and live for Him. This is the total devotion and the commitment to the promise spoken at repentance. For God sees to the heart of man, and if we have not received it is because we asked amiss:  James1:16Do not err, my beloved brethren.17Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, (the gift of the Spirit originated that way and will always have the evidence of speaking in tongues, because God changes not, and that’s the way He comes into our hearts the same way with Fire) neither shadow of turning. (This is how they will be known by others because of the signs and wonders, by the power of His spirit John14:12-15)18Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.19Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: 20For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. 21Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls. 22But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.23For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: 24For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. 25But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed. 26If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain. 27Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this: To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.  Refer to1Thes.5:22.

Now discipleship and Stewardship Begin

  Repent of your sins to our God and Savior Jesus, be baptized in His truth and Spirit in His glorious name in the water of death to self and raise out of the water in newness of life born again in water of cleansing as in the washing of the sacrifice before it was excepted in the Tabernacle in the wilderness, and the purification of the priests before they were anointed with oil were washed and sanctified, and in His Spirit and likeness, this is the true rebirthing process. No one ever said it was going to be easy, it’s not until you do one simple thing. Learn to Love God with all your heart, then it starts to get real easy from there on! For does not the Bible say the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. When we learn to reverse our thought pattern to the Spirit before the flesh and humble ourselves, we then begin to realize a break through.

Fallen by the wayside

  Unless we are baptized in the Spirit, we are lost when reading His scriptures, without His spirit to guide us and to help us with interpretations: These are those that I have talked about before, that start out really well but have not the fire that only comes from the Lord’s Spirit, spoken of by John the Baptist; Matt.3:11he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire: This is the reason right here so many think they are with the Lord yet cannot keep from going back to the world and doing the same things all over again, as well as they start reading the Bible and lose heart. Because the Lord’s not there with them holding their hand through the process of the learning and interpretation, look to Isa28:13 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. (The people who have not the Spirit of Jesus will be those that start to read the word and lose heart, fall backwards, and break away from daily prayer, praise, and stop reading the word because they don’t understand it, lose ambitions or the Fire, because they never really received it. These are those people that fall back into the worldly ways and go straight back to doing just what they did before they were so called saved!)  Every one of God’s scriptures are to be read, eaten and thoroughly digested, not just the ones someone thinks needs to be read and you can do without the others: like some people I know that say to only concentrate on the New Testament, for that is what matters to this day and age, true but unless you read and know and thoroughly understand the Old as well as the New how are you going to keep from doing the same old mistakes the Israelites did that upset the Lord, in that the Lord looked to the gentiles to graft in a people who knew not the Lord, to make His people jealous. For how easy it would be to graft in the natural branch back into the vine than the wild one, which will be done in the future anyway.

We see so many today trying so hard to get right with the Lord but always missing the mark for one reason, they have not the proper teachers teaching apostolic doctrine directly from scriptures. When man who has no idea of how to speak in a heavenly tongue tries to teach, we see this problem arising, look back to prior verses in Isaiah28 for we see the answer right there.11For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people. This is how we preach this gospel as well as teach it, we let the Spirit move us to teach in light of His guidance, then we can get all of His word to our heart: 10For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little: in the right order by the leading of His Spirit we see how to become His people; and then we can start to be fed, 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: (Those that have been baptized in His Spirit can start to eat solid food of His hard scriptures or dark sayings sometimes called the parables as well as Paul’s hard sayings.)

This is the very reason many have come to stumble in their walk with the Lord, they have not made the transition from Child of the World to Child of God in the Spirit, no wonder we have so many so called preachers that need true revelation being preached to them before they preach to Another living soul, for this is indeed the blind leading the blind straight to the gates of Hell’s Fire!

Many are called but few are chosen

  I have shown more than enough to get most on the road to repentance, forgiveness and baptism in God’s Spirit; but that is entirely up to you, how you go about it, for this is your walk. (But don’t get off the path to the right hand or the left.) I can’t go before you and ask God to forgive you or lead anyone through some sinners prayer but I can pray for you and if you are baptized in His glorious name and Spirit then He will forgive your sins and make you whole, James5: 15And the prayer of faith shall save the sick (mentally and physically), and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he has committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.  16Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual ferv-ent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. For we are all called by God but few will receive Him in all His glory; Rev3:20Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hears my voice, and opens the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. 21To him that overcometh (The world and carnality with, man’s traditions, philosophy and this trinity doctrine, that came from man and not out of His irrefutable word “The Holy Bible”.) will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father (I and My Father are one, John10:30) in his throne. (Because God in this New Testament age is now manifested in the flesh) 22He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Paul instructs Timothy in 2Tim. 19Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let everyone that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.20But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour.21If a man therefore purge himself from these, (from the world and sanctify himself for God’s use) he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.

This is only done after we prove ourselves and our faith is held true under his testing or proving: Rev.3:15I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 16So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. This is those who have lost the Fire and are not doing His will and making disciples of all nations and people, when God loves you He will test you to see if you truly love Him: Rev.3: 19As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten (test, purify, and make ready for use): be zealous therefore, and repent.

The miss understood word of Grace

  I feel that so many people are out here preaching of “this day or age of grace” and we live in an age of grace and that we can do anything we wish and say oh I’m sorry God I’ll try and do better and it will be ok. Heads up fly ball, this lie is going to be all over you; you’ll chase it all the way to the broad path that leads straight to hell’s slippery slope, to the big Lake of Fire!  Jesus said I am the way, the truth, and the life. He is the light of the world that allows us to have light in the darkness of this world, to follow His narrow path (means difficult) and enter at the straight gate (for it would be easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a sinner to enter therein). Many the first thing they say is I’m saved by faith and not by works which is the works of the Law of Moses to the Jews, but yet we have those laws put upon our hearts and in our minds now and yes we live by faith but faith without works is dead James2 teaches this: 17Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. 18Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.19Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. (How many people tremble now days? Even understand that there is only One God our Lord Jesus) 20But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?  21Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?  22Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?  23And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. 24Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. 25Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way?  26For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

The most convincing is what is taught by Jesus in John14:15 If ye love Me, keep My commandments. I love simplicity! Or Else the long version in Luke13:24Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able (for the order of operations that God has instructed for us to do must be kept, they have to be kept in order to enter into His court and His mansion, for we all will see the throne room, but who will see the rest of His kingdom?). 25When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are: 26Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets. 27But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity (these are those that did not have a burden and pick up their cross for they are not worthy of Him). 28There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out. 29And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the north, and from the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God. 30And, behold, there are last which shall be first, and there are first which shall be last. These are those who have made themselves ready to enter into His kingdom and have gowned themselves with His royal robes so that they may attend the wedding feast of the bride! (Eph4: 3Endeavouring to keep the unity (God cannot be divided He is omni-present) 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. 7But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.)  Please people read 1John5:1-20 and learn that Jesus is the true God. And Thomas harmonizes this verse as well in John20:28.

You want to go to heaven then listen to this prophet: find you a wise teacher who preaches just straight apostolic doctrines and learn who is “rightly dividing” the word of God so you can rebuke a false prophet or a teacher of today’s emerging church; 2Tim2: 15Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

If you seek Him in all righteous and in a love of your heart He will find you and give to you freely; 1Kings3: 13And I have also given thee that which thou hast not asked, both riches, and honour: so that there shall not be any among the kings like unto thee all thy days. 14And if thou wilt walk in my ways, to keep my statutes and my commandments, as thy father David did walk, then I will lengthen thy days. (Like forever to eternity) Matt.6:33But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. And this is the long and short of it; 1Tim.4:16Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.

  • Now I’ve found something written a long time ago and I think it is still current and helps explain the true meaning of grace according to God’s eyes and as well as what we should be seeking in true grace”:

This is best described as a study of:

The Mystery Doctrine of Grace

By F. W. Krummacher (1796 – 1868)

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

“You are,” exclaimed Peter, “a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people, that you should show forth the praises of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.”

In these, and many other passages of Holy Scripture, all our boasted godliness and fancied merit, are pronounced worthless and hypocritical; yes, even judged and condemned, when they do not so affect our hearts, as to produce a virtuous life, fruitful in good works. “Without holiness,” says God “no man shall see the Lord.” And in the first epistle of John we find, “He that commits sin is of the devil; and whoever is born of God, does not commit sin; for His seed remains in him: and he cannot commit sin, because he is born of

God.” “Whoever is born of God, sins not.” This is a remarkable passage; how are we to understand it? Are they who are born again really free from all sin?

Need they no longer daily renew the complaints and sighs of a contrite heart, that they have been so remiss in their most sacred obligations; in love to their God, and to their brethren? Does not John himself declare, “If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us”; yes, we make God a liar. How then can we bring these two passages, which seem to contradict each other, into unison? This will not be so difficult, my brethren, if we look more closely at the context. John tells us explicitly why the regenerated do not sin. He says, “He does not commit sin, because His seed (the seed of God, the seed of the new life from God, Christ Jesus, who is the true life) remains in him.

Whoever is truly born of God, has obtained another nature, a new life: he has become a new creature in Christ Jesus; he sees sin in its most frightful form, and abhors it as the greatest evil; he hates it as an act of enmity towards God—as the murderer of his Savior, his own life, his salvation. Nothing is so horrible, so odious to him, as sin; he bears in his heart a deep and sincere desire, and an earnest prayer renewed daily and hourly, to be delivered from the bondage of this tyrant, and to serve the Lord in the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. The Savior has enlightened him from pure mercy, so that he has recognized his wretched condition through sin; He has atoned for his sins by the death struggle on the cross; He has forgiven his transgressions, and purified him in His own blood, and made him blessed and holy, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit. This astonishing grace, this unspeakable mercy has eternally estranged him from sin; sin has become detestable to him, it is a crying abomination, a most unnatural ingratitude, and therefore he hates, avoids, flees, and curses sin; and prays, strives, sighs, and uses his utmost endeavors to root it from his heart.
But how is this possible? Does not the seed of the serpent yet reign within him? Do not the most beloved children of grace still sigh and groan under the weight of their transgressions? Is not the Christian’s pillow often moistened with the tears of godly sorrow and repentance? Truly it is, but yet even in this distress and lamentation, this strife against sin, and this imploring of the sanctifying power of the blood of Christ, there is proof given, that he who is born again has received a new nature which cannot sin, to which sin is a strange, disgusting, and unfriendly element; and that the old Adam, which exists in sin, has, nevertheless, received a death wound which will by degrees cause his destruction.

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

In Your light, oh Lord! Shall we see light? Lift up the light of Your countenance upon us, that we may be healed. Your mercy is great to those that fear You. How unnumbered are the wonders which You do to Your children! Your affections yearn with compassion; You had pity upon the miserable, Oh God! Give us the eye of faith? You gave Your only beloved Son, Your heart’s treasure, to be despised on earth, in the deepest lowliness, in contempt, to bear grief, death, and the curse; You allowed Him to be trodden under the foot of sinners, that Your enemies, Your despisers, might not be lost. Oh Lord! Give us the eye of faith; give us a heart to understand heavenly things; let us but be aware of a part of You our Savior’s overflowing mercy; then shall we forever be removed into Your comfort, and show forth Your praise in time and in eternity. Give us to understand the true nature of sin, so that the name of Jesus may be precious to us above all things. Declare unto us something of the riches of Your compassion, of the stability of Your truth, of the unchangeableness of Your promises, of the all-sufficiency of the holy sacrifice of Golgotha, and especially of our own nothingness and our deep guilt, that it may lead us to depend daily on You, and to look to You for grace, as our only means of existence.

Oh, Lord! Guard us from hypocrisy, which is an abomination to You. Let Your grace and truth dwell within us, that we may never, like the foolish virgins, call in vain: “Lord, Lord, open to us!” Grant us a pure, sincere, and upright heart, a spirit free from guile, a single eye! But if we are without the humble, childlike spirit; if, instead of truth itself, we have only the words of truth; and if we have only as yet attained to that degree of knowledge and sense which leaves us unfruitful, slothful, cold, proud, impure, without the daily fervent communion of prayer with You, without chastisement, without desire for sanctification; then remove the scales from our eyes, and break the white sepulcher of our hearts, that from it we may run in terror, and fall in sincere contrition at Your feet to acknowledge from the deepest heartfelt experience, that   You are perfect grace and truth. Then shall we, oppressed by hatred of sin, moved by Your unmerited love and faithfulness, animated by Your Spirit, clothed with the garment of Your righteousness, overpowered by Your free grace, “give diligence to make our calling and election sure, for if we do this we shall never fall.” Lord, be merciful to us, and bless Your Word to us! Amen.
“What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid! How shall we that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?” Romans6:1, 2.Guided by these words, we will consider the abuse of the doctrine of grace under the three following heads.

  • 1. How is it possible that the abuse of the doctrine of grace is so easy, and therefore so frequent and
    customary?
  • 2. That it is a crime, and therefore worthy of punishment.
  • 3. How can a man be delivered from that error, and attain the right use of this doctrine?

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

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

Yes, God offers a complete justification in the Son of His love, to all poor, miserable, condemned sinners. We may thus appear in His presence, not only free from the curse, from punishment and sin, but holy, righteous, guiltless, without blemish, clothed in the beaming, spotless robe of the righteousness of our Surety, in which even the eyes of the Holy God can discern no stain of sin. We may approach the most wretched sinner, and say to him, “There is a Redeemer, a Comforter, a Surety, a Savior for you, who can fill you with the peace of God, who can pour into your breast the most blessed hopes of future glory, who can even in the midst of the valley of tears build you a habitation of peace, against which all the waves, storms, and floods in the world, will spend their strength in vain!
When his tears and prayers have been for some time answered, and he can lay hold of Jesus with the hand of faith, then the Savior plucks him as a brand from the burning, and presents him before the presence of His Father as a pardoned child of God, to whom all things have worked together for good. Mark! Not merely for his salvation, but for his good! It is true that we lost much—no all by Adam’s sin. The image of God was destroyed, and we are reduced to so powerless a state, that we cannot stretch forth the withered hand to pluck the fruit from the tree of life. But behold! Listen! Be astonished, and pray! There is a free grace of God, which without any respect of persons, can save to the uttermost, and pardon sins of the deepest dye! We speak to all sinners—to old sinners, to young sinners, to adulterers, thieves, murderers, slanderers, blasphemers, the voluptuary, the deceiver, and the Sabbath breaker—however deformed and soiled by sin, though they may deserve eternal condemnation a thousand fold, we call to you aloud, our heart impressed with the sincerest love for your souls: You may now be delivered from all your guilt, yes even today you may gain justification of life in Jesus Christ.
You need bring nothing of your own; you can be cured permanently and gratuitously of all your own sins and misdeeds; Jesus will absolve you from all; and give you forgiveness of sins, a new birth, faith, sanctification, safety and glorification; He will save you, convert, justify, favor, and bless you; yes, He will dwell in you, and walk in you, and you shall be in Him what He was and is, the holy and beloved One of God!
O my brethren, how blessed is the man, who, overcome by this free grace, is removed out of himself and incorporated with Christ. His grace swallows up all our sins, and all our evil, like a fathomless sea; and introduces all the treasures of heavenly glory into our souls. This grace raises us above all cares, and leads us to repose in the depths of the eternal love of God; this grace finishes the work begun in us; and never ceases from correcting, healing, strengthening, and blessing us; it screens, and arms us against all the enemies of our salvation; it helps us to bear our cross; it conducts us through the narrow path of death, to the regions of eternal glory; it constitutes our song of praise throughout eternity.
Then what shall I say, my brothers and sisters, but that whoever is born of this blessed mother, to the light of life; whoever has exper-ienced anything of the riches of its tenderness and truth, and has truly been convinced, by the light of God’s Word, of the depth and extent of his wretched condition, must feel that it is impossible to describe the value of this grace. We cannot sufficiently appreciate its unspeakable value; the most ardent songs of praise are but poor and weak in comparison. And yet it is a melancholy truth, which bears fearful testimony to the deep corruption of the human heart that though the prophets and apostles zealously applied themselves to guard this precious doctrine from corruption, yet it was necessary at all times, notwithstanding and it is to the present day, to preach with unabated zeal against its abuse.

We have already said that this abuse of the doctrine of the free grace of God in Christ Jesus is very easy. Is it truly thus? If I am in danger of sinking in a deep and muddy stream and a compassionate savior throws his self into the water and rescues me at the hazard of his own life; should I forget my preserver and his deed of love, and throw myself afresh into the stream, the depths of which threatened to destroy me? Should I not rather, all my life long, be eager to testify my gratitude to my faithful benefactor? Should I not anxiously avoid the dark stream and its frightful depths, and sincerely hate and abhor it?

Oh my brethren, whoever has experienced real grace, who knows grace in its true character, and sees clearly that the Lord might justly have left him to perish, but that He has saved him, out of His free mercy, by the offering up of His own life; and not only that, but has also chosen him from the foundation of the world, looked upon him as a righteous child of God, and made him blessed to all eternity; he ought to dread nothing so much as a continuance in sin, and daily desire nothing more fervently than to be faithful to this Savior until death. But, truly, this experience does not fall to the lot of every man, and hence the abuse of it.
Men talk about free grace without having the slightest acquaintance with it from personal experience; instead of living in the element of grace, they have nothing but a mere head knowledge, (lacking understanding) or a superficial perception of it in their hearts; a complete break with the world, the flesh, and the devil, has not yet taken place; the conscience sleeps the sleep of death, and Christ is regarded as a mere substitute, whom the sinner thinks will make up the deficiency of his own fancied merit. Thus the abuse of this doctrine becomes very easy. When the whole head, the whole heart is filled with false premises, how can we be surprised that they should lead to the most false—no, infamous conclusions? What wonder is it that such a man, who chatters about grace without having become acquainted with it from heartfelt experience, with the tears of repentance, should appropriate the kindness of this Redeemer to himself, in such a manner as to leave his heart and life unchanged.
Only imagine to yourself a man who has yet to learn his deeply sinful condition in the sight of God. He hears how Christ has atoned for all; how He has offered a perfect sacrifice for the salvation of sinners, that His blood washes out all sin; that nothing further remains to be completed; that man must be saved by free grace, without the merit of works; he hears, that all which serves to advance a godly life and walk, must be bestowed by the Savior; and that we can do literally nothing without Him. The sinner’s own inability is to him welcome intelligence; it is like an agreeable pillow to repose on. “This,” thinks he “may be turned to some account.” “You have sinned,” says he to himself, “consequently the Savior belongs to you, He has blotted out your sins; His merits, His righteousness, are yours.”
He torments himself, and labors to bring his opinions to these truths; he appeals as being entirely orthodox to the promises of the Word of God; he believes himself called to repel all the accusations of the law, and of his own conscience, and allows himself to go on quite smoothly, as though everything were in the best possible condition. He has perhaps wept once over his sins; has accused himself, by a few strong expressions, as a lost sinner; has experienced the insufficiency of his own resolutions, and has deduced from a superficial insight into the demands of the law that he cannot stand before God in his present state. He now places Christ before him, and firmly persuades himself that he belongs to the elect of God and that none can have anything against him. He troubles not himself as to whether he daily experiences the workings of grace in his heart, whether he is become a new creature, and sin is destroyed within him; he thinks that in his own perception of the doctrine of grace, and in the humble acknowledgments which he makes of his necessity of it, he possesses the fullest security that he belongs to the people of God; and considers—truly in a manner which excites horror when closely viewed—that this and every other declaration of the Bible may be brought forward to justify his apparent Christianity. Yes, he may perhaps be a zealous advocate for free grace; while he himself is still lying under the wrath of God, and has no spark of grace in his heart.

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

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

But what shall we say of those who have really an insight into the grace of God, in the Gospel, and yet knowingly and willingly continue in their sins, or even only in one single sin? Have these hypocrites disap-peared, or can we speak of such people as monsters, who are not to be met with in our country? Would to God it were so, but sad exper-ience teaches us to the contrary. Even here, among us in this country, where the knowledge of Christianity has the pre-eminence; where it is less subject to reproach than elsewhere; where the name of the Lord Jesus is acknowledged, even in our neighborhood, it is beyond all things necessary to warn you against the abuse of the doctrine of grace.
Even here there is a very large number of such, who have certainly the appearance of leading a godly life, while they deny the power of it, and declare by their actions, that though they can talk fluently about free grace they have always resisted its chastisement, which would have subdued their ungodly dispositions. Alas! There are but few who earnestly engage in a determined warfare against sin. Most people content themselves with mere knowledge, thoughts, feelings, acknow-ledgments, and speeches; while they, more or less, willfully turn the comforting truths of the Gospel into a pillow for their sins to rest upon. Thus the free grace of God is extolled by many who openly continue in their sins; and publicly mark themselves, by their pride or indolence; by their judging arrogance and uncharitable speeches; by their fraud and reveling; by their falsehood, avarice, and other vices, as men who know not the true life in grace.

We meet with many people who are zealous defenders of the truth, while in the observance of their domestic and civil duties they come far behind the great mass of the carnally minded and careless children of the world. They are always extolling the Savior, His merits, His free mercy, while they daily make Him the servant of sin. Men are anxious, truly, to be preserved from the curse, from the final punishment of sin; but they submit to the dominion of this or that sin, without any serious combat. And if men are urgently called to combat sin, they call it all legality, while they make the Gospel, in a carnal manner, favor their indolence and impurity and run the doctrine of grace into an intoxi-cating draught, against the voice of the law and of their conscience.

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

2. But this is very melancholy—it cries to heaven, it is beyond all measure lamentable. For what is as criminal as for man to degrade Jesus to the rank of a servant of sin, and His Gospel to be a passport for all immorality, to a resting place for his own indolence? What! Has the Son of God trembled and mourned beneath the weight of your sins? Has He endured the floods of torment, and the pains of hell? Has He, forsaken by God, hung upon the cross, and breathed out His precious life there, in order that you might in carnal indolence serve dead idols? Behold, the Eternal God opens His whole heart to you; He follows you, in all your goings; He blesses and delights you in a thousand different ways; He sets before you the most splendid offers for the redemption of your soul; He sends His Divine grace to meet you; and is ready, like a tender mother, to take care of you, to refresh you; and yet you continue with your dead heart to praise his love with your mouth, yet turning this same love into a cloak for your wickedness.
What are these sins which you commit? Are they not, as it were so many blows from your hand, directed against the infinite love of God? Are they not like the traitor kiss of Judas, worthy of the deepest abhorrence? You say, “God has chosen me, saved me, regenerated me; He has snatched me as a brand from the burning; He has forgiven me my sins; He has received me among the number of His elect, and has embraced me with His free grace.”
If God has done all this for you, how can you endure the thought of daily crucifying your merciful Redeemer afresh, and causing him to mourn? Talk not of your awakening, talk not of the grace of God; you have as yet never known the hellish nature of sin, nor have you experienced the true meaning of pardon. If the Lord has chosen, saved, favored, and blessed you, should you not in deep humility bow yourself to the dust? Your heartfelt love for God, who has thus loved you, should daily incite you to gratitude: “For to this end has God chosen us,” says Paul, “that we should be holy and unblameable before Him in love.” If you can so far abuse the Gospel of the grace of God, as to bear to continue even in one single sin, without contrition, striving, and fighting against it, and without the most earnest wish to subdue it; you are a dreadful hypocrite, and your sins are by far more hateful and abominable than the sins of those who do not possess your knowledge.
If, however, the abuse of the doctrine of grace is such a horrible and crying sin, such an unnatural wickedness, its punishment will likewise be fearful. We see a proof of this in Judas Iscariot, the traitor. This ungodly wretch imagined that he was in the favor of Jesus, and belonged to the number of His elect; but he deceived himself, it was not so. He was in secret alliance with sin. He was devoted to avarice; and he coveted, and stole, under the very eyes of Him whose disciple he pretended to be. He even journeyed about with the other Apostles; preached the name of Jesus; and who knows but that he was not more conversant with the doctrines of the Gospel than the rest of the Apostles put together?
But what did it avail him? Discord gnawed at his vitals; an evil conscience tormented him as often as he came under his Master’s eye; a warning from the lips of his Lord sounded in his ear, as the thunder of the judgment; until at last the flames of despair; which consumed his vitals, burst forth—until he, finally, in the grasp of this despair, put an end to himself with horror and dread.

Yes, if you apprehend the doctrine of grace, only carnally; if you leave it as a useless treasure of knowledge, to dwell only in the head, instead of within the heart; if you lend but a finger to Satan, while you pretend to be giving your whole hand to Jesus, and are knowingly and willfully under the dominion of the least appearance of sin; then you are on the direct road which Judas took to eternal damnation. The abuse of this doctrine is the most dreadful ingratitude, the most fearful mockery of the living God, which men can commit—the most hateful insult which we can show to the Lord. What wonder is it that the Lord, who will not be mocked, threatens it with the most dreadful punishments?
3. Yes! Our compassionate God guards and warns us, that we may not in future receive our portion with the hypocrites. He assists us in His mercy, which we may be secured from the abuse of His grace, and may attain to the right and proper use of it. How does this appear? How are we to attain to it? We will shortly, in the last place, consider this. We have seen already how this abominable sin is very easy to commit; how common it is; and how criminal, and therefore how worthy of punish-ment. If you have attentively and considerately followed what has been hitherto said, you will have remarked, that we spoke not so much of the abuse of grace itself, as of the abuse of the doctrine of grace. There is a wide difference between the two.

The doctrine of grace may be viewed in a false, sinful light, and looked at only on one side, so as to have no influence—at least, no deep, essential influence—upon the reason and actions of the man. But is this possible with grace itself? “God forbid,” says Paul, “that we who are dead to sin should live any longer therein!” True grace contains a death blow to all sin, and a powerful incitement to all goodness. Whoever has truly found grace in the eyes of the Lord, has seen sin in all its most hateful forms, and knows its curse, its deserving of condem-nation, and has engaged in warm combat against it; bearing a bitter hatred towards it in his heart, and not even having any inward desire in his soul but this, to consecrate his whole heart, his whole life to the Lord, who has in so unmerited a manner saved him, and drawn him to Himself.
But whoever can grieve this Eternal Comforter, by even one single sin; whoever can reconcile his heart to take pleasure in any sinful deed or desire, has placed a phantom, an airy conception of his brain, in the stead of real grace; and does not belong to those who have exper-ienced the grace of God, and are become partakers of it. If you wish then to be freed from the abuse of grace, and to attain to the right use of it, behold I can give you no other advice than this: Learn to know the grace of God by experience. In grace alone, where it is in truth experienced lays all saving power. Learn to see what you are in the sight of God; what you deserve according to His law; learn to know, how it is only through His free mercy that your salvation can be affected; and that He has affected it. You must descend from the proud height of your imagined righteousness, until you know yourself, as Paul did, to be the chief of sinners, who has deserved everlasting wrath, curse, damnation, and hell; but who is not worthy of the least benefit from God.

When you have learned this in deep humility, then the grace of God will become great and precious to you; then you will perceive what a hateful hellish monster all sin, and every sin, is; then it will be your chief desire daily and hourly to destroy all and each sin; yes, then will your heart lay hold of the free grace of God, so that in the deepest heartfelt humility, love, and thankfulness, you will offer yourself as a living sacrifice for the great love with which the Lord has loved you, and will ever love you.
Means of grace are not lacking to us. If it is the real intention of your heart and not only of your lips to attain to grace; if the Spirit of God has kindled a longing after God in you, then you will faithfully employ the Word of God, prayer, and the holy sacraments; and avoid all occasions of sin, and frivolous, vain, worldly society; and strive with all your efforts, and all the powers at your command, to attain the goal—the everlasting blessedness of your soul.

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

Closing

   I myself can add little to what has so beautifully been said by my Elder, brother F. W. Krummacher over one hundred and forty three years ago, all I can add is this, if we don’t find a way to love Jesus Christ with all our hearts, minds, spirits, souls, and most importantly with all of our strength and the strength of the Holy Spirit in us fighting sin in this world we are not in His will, and are still sorrowfully lost; if we do not reach the Lost. We must seek our own salvation and keep ourselves clean, spotless, sanctified and consecrated for His Glorious Calling, so our testimony will have a weight of conviction to it because not only to we preach holiness, sanctification, and consecration, we must meet His required practices, sayings, judgments and to keep His commandments as well as seek and to save! This is a fulltime position.

God’s standards have not changed over the years so why should our churches; just to meet this modern-  day man’s traditions, that are going to perish in his own foolishness. If we can’t find a way to live with all of the Lord’s scriptures seared into our heart and burned into our flesh just as we see men today with tattoos from head to foot, we should represent the very word of God written all over us for the whole world to see as well as hear from our lips to their deaf ears, we must find a way into their hearts and souls; eternity in hell is not fit for man, God’s perfect creation to end up in. It was reserved for the adversary who deserves to be bound in it; “The Lake of Eternal Fire!” “May the Lord take a liken to your soul on judgment day!” Have a blessed day and remember Acts2:38, 39 and everything else will fall into place, after you have been baptized in the Lord our God’s loving Spirit in the only name in which salvation is obtained in Jesus’ name.

Glory to God in the Highest!

 To one: senyangep@gmail.com

God said many times in the Holy Bible that He would not give His glory to another; here are just a few examples; 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. Also see 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. We see Jesus is the Glory of the Father in person, Jn.11:40Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God? We also see this again in scripture revealed to us in the writing of the Apostle Paul in 2 Cor.4:6For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

All of this is because when you have seen Jesus you have seen the one who sent Him, Jn.12:45 when we understand that Jesus is the I Am in the flesh, 1 Tm.3:16 and that Jesus told His disciples who the Father was in Jn.14:6-9, when you have seen Me you have seen the Father and hence forth you have seen Him and know Him! Thomas realized this too in Jn.20:28 He said My Lord and my God! If Jesus was not God He would have corrected Thomas right here in  front of all the disciples because God cannot be part of a lie or untruth! Jn.4:23But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.24God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. This is exactly what Jesus said about God, God is a Spirit; Beings God is a Spirit it only resounds with all logical force that beings they are around the throne of God saying what? Holy, Holy, Holy, is the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY so then with all understanding and reason which comes to us by the Holy Spirit which will lead us into all truths we see that God is the Holy Spirit, when we understand this we see how Jesus became God in the flesh, 1 Tm.3: 16And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory. Where only God has all glory!

We also understand that when Jesus started His ministry He told all people that the Kingdom of God had come unto them (Man) as seen in Mt.4:17From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. We know this because the scripture cannot be broken as we see Jesus instructing the scribes and the others of the Sanhedrin in Jn.10:30I and my Father are one. 31Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him. 32Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me? 33The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God. 34Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods? 35If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken; 36Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God? 37If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not. 38But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him.

Jesus is the I Am of the Old Testament, Ex.3:14 as well as the New Testament as seen in scripture yet again as we read Jn.8: 58Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I Am. This is why we must understand God is ONE not three persons and unless we know this and allow the Holy Spirit to lead us into all understanding of who Jesus really is we will be lost because we are not worshipping Him in Spirit and in Truth; I refer you to scripture yet again: Jn.8:24I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I AM [he], ye shall die in your sins.

That is the reason the Apostle Paul in Acts 20:28 told the church of Ephesus that there would be wolves dressed in sheep’s clothing come in among them and would not spare the flock of the living God as prophesied by Jesus Himself in Mt.24 and Jn. chapter 10 but let us read Ac.20: 28Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. The very blood of Jesus Christ is the blood of God! Now this makes perfect since beings God is the word and the word was made flesh as seen in Jn.1 through verse 14 and we behold His glory; 14And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. Grace and Truth can only come by God and only those who have been created anew can be His children as seen in Jn.1:12But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

When we see the mentioning of the Son of God here it only means that Jesus is the flesh of God He is all man but yet all divine because He is the sure mercies of King David as promised by God that David would be the Son of God as seen in Gen.49:8Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise: thy hand shall be in the neck of thine enemies; thy father’s children shall bow down before thee. 9Judah is a lion’s whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up? 10The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be. 11Binding his foal unto the vine, and his ass’s colt unto the choice vine; he washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes: 12His eyes shall be red with wine, and his teeth white with milk. We see the actual covenant in 2 Sam.7:12And when thy days be fulfilled, and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will establish his kingdom. 13He shall build an house for my name, and I will stablish the throne of his kingdom for ever. 14I will be his father, and he shall be my son. If he commit iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men, and with the stripes of the children of men: 15But my mercy shall not depart away from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away before thee. 16And thine house and thy kingdom shall be established for ever before thee: thy throne shall be established for ever. Does any of this sound familiar? It should because it can be seen again in the book of Rev. from Gen.1:1 to Rev.22:21 we see the Holy Bible has one theme and that is to bring man to God and restore man to his rightful inheritance as being the true Son’s of God who were to rule over the fallen angels sent to earth for their everlasting punishment as seen in Gen.4: 7If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him. We are to rule over them the evil spirits that keep trying to deceive us and lead us away from God’s Holy Truths written in His Glorious word, because we are cleansed by His word as seen in Jn.15:3Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.

Jesus has come to us from the beginning of time because He was the first light the world had ever been given before the planets and the stars were made for times and seasons as we look clear back to the beginning of time and existence; Gen.1:3And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. 4And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. God is that Light that stands between Good and Evil and the darkness Satan comprehended it not! Jn.8:12Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. Jesus has done this from before time was established, time did not exist until the Sun Moon and Stars were created for time in the forth day. Yom in Hebrew means as well as day it means age; see this sight for help with the Hebrew; Strong’s Hebrew 3117 2303 Occurrences when thinking about God and His ways we need to think in the realms of eternity and Strong’s Greek: 165. αἰών (aión) — a space of time, an age.

Jesus has shown us many times that He has been called to come forth as the Holy Spirit’s representative beings God is a Spirit as seen in Jn.4:24! Let us again look to nothing but scripture for our answers as we see in Jn.16:27For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.

28I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father. The Holy Spirit is the Father and the Father is in Jesus Christ as seen in Mt.3:17And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. the voice said In Him I Am, well pleased; you need to understand there are no punctuation’s in the Greek original and the Hebrew languages it is for us who have been anointed with the Holy Spirit to lead us into all truths as see guess where? Yes, in scripture yet again I will only quote from as we look to 1 Jn.2:20But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.

21I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth. 22Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. 23Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also. 24Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father. 25And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life. 26These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you.

 27But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.

28And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming. 29If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him.

The only righteousness we have is God living inside us and that is the Spirit of Jesus Christ who is Both LORD and the CHRIST, Ac.2:36 and look at Ac.10:36 who is LORD OF All!~

Jesus said in Mt.5:17Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 18For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. 19Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

 20For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

The author of Hebrews said unless we are Holy we shall not see the Kingdom of God; let us look to Heb.12:14Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord: You see Jesus said all the law and the prophets (testimonies) hang on the one principle Love God and your neighbor as yourself because these are the two main commandments we must do in order to be in His Kingdom see Mk.12:

28And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all?

29And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:

30And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.

31And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.

32And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he:

33And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.

34And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. And no man after that durst ask him any question. The scribe was standing talking to the Kingdom of God right in front of him! Jn.14:6Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. And then in the next few verses Jesus explains to His Disciples who the Father is see 7-9 and all those who receive Him in Spirit and in truth are His forever, when and only when we keep all His sayings see Jn.14:10-

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

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.

19Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.

20At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you. This is verified in Ro.8:9But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

This can only be done if we keep all of what Jesus said to do; not man, but the Holy Bible who was written by Holy Men as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit in them see 2 Pt.1:20-21 which is the Spirit of Jesus Christ as seen in 1 Pt.1:10-11!

All of this teaching lays solely upon living the word of God in our lives as it is written: Jesus said we must be born-again of the water and of the Spirit! Jn.3:3-8 Jesus was teaching a Pharisee by the name of Nicodemus; Jesus was showing him the way to heaven! You see there is a lot of difference in reciting a verse over someone at baptism then actually doing what that verse said to do; Jesus said to the Disciples to baptize in the name of the Father and of the Son (Flesh) and of the Holy Spirit (God; all tiles of God see Zech.14:9; 1 Jn.5:20!); what is that name? Jesus is that name Jn.5: 43I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. Jesus said He would have the Father send the Comforter (The Paraclete26But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name! That is the reason at the first ever given Sermon Peter gave He told those people who were asking what must we do to be saved this answer: 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. (I will get back to this in a little while,)

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

 42And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. You see it takes doing what was required of us before we can receive God’s repentance’s upon us for being sinners! See Ac.10:1 through Ac.14; look what it says God did!

15And as I began to speak, the Holy Ghost fell on them, as on us at the beginning.

16Then remembered I the word of the Lord, how that he said, John indeed baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost.

17Forasmuch then as God gave them the like gift as he did unto us, who believed on the Lord Jesus Christ; what was I, that I could withstand God?

18When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted *repentance unto life*.

We must do our part before God will do His part; we must open the door to our hearts before He can come in! Rev.3:20Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. 21To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. 22He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. You see we will have tribulations in this life of ours Jn.16:33 but it is up to us to stand in our beliefs and put them to practice in our lives before it is actually accounted for us or to us as our righteousness, this is what James was talking about in the 2nd chapter faith without works is nothing: 26For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also. This is the same thing the Apostle Paul talked about when he was trying to win King Agrippa in Ac.26:19Whereupon, O king Agrippa, I was not disobedient unto the heavenly vision: 20But shewed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance. Is that not what Jesus said? (Mt.4:17) is that not what Peter said on the day of Pentecost? (Ac.2:38) We must repent this means to go in another direction, it is even an old military term for about face! God knows who are His; 2 Tm.2:19Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. 20But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour.

21If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work. 22Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart. You see we must be about our Father’s business when He returns for us or we are not really His servants are we? Look to Mk.8:34And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. 35For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it. 36For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? 37Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? 38Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels. We must be glorifying God with our bodies as actual goodly servants would be doing our Master’s will for us; which is His word living in us, Jer.31:31Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: 32Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD: 33But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. 34And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more. You see God has no reason to allow His glory to be seen in a person who is not actually engaged in His business; He doesn’t even have to answer their prayers! He is not in the business of rewarding sinners; even their prayers are an abomination to Him; see Prov.15:8The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD: but the prayer of the upright is his delight; see also Prov.21:7The robbery of the wicked shall destroy them; because they refuse to do judgment. 8The way of man is forward and strange: but as for the pure, his work is right. And finally Prov.28:9He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination. We are not saved by God’s grace and faith alone; from Gen. to Rev. there is one people who will be saved; that will be the people of obedience to God’s every word; with man this is impossible but with God living in you, then and only then, can all things then become possible, Mt.5:48Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. Same thing God told Abraham in Gen.17:1And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect. You see God is the same, He changes not! Mal.3:6; we are to be His servants doing what He has told us to do, just that simple! See Ecc.12:10The preacher sought to find out acceptable words: and that which was written was upright, even words of truth. 11The words of the wise are as goads, and as nails fastened by the masters of assemblies, which are given from one shepherd! 12And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh. 13Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. 14For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil. Only those who have received His word by our Lord and Master Jesus Christ and have listened to all that His Apostles have written to us, as seen in Jn.15:19If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. 20Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. 21But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me. 22If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin! When we are not in the will of God Mt.12:30-32 we are in our will and that is the unforgivable sin! The sin of ignorance can be forgiven but the sin of a presumptuous sinner cannot and never will be forgiven see Num.15: the man picking up sticks on the Sabbath got stoned for this exact reason! God changes not, that is why Jesus talked about knowing the cost of discipleship! We cannot be His disciples and live as we always have, we must have repented and come a new direction and abide in Him or we will never bear His fruits; Jn.15:1-ffs!

Many are called; in fact the whole earth and mankind is called but few will be chosen, Mt.7:12Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets. 13Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

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. The only wise man is the man who built his life on the rock which is Christ Jesus and His words; 2 Tm.3:14But 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. This is exactly what Paul wrote as well in Gal.6:5For every man shall bear his own burden. 6Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things. 7Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 8For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. 9And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. 10As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith. 11Ye see how large a letter I have written unto you with mine own hand. 12As many as desire to make a fair shew in the flesh, they constrain you to be circumcised; only lest they should suffer persecution for the cross of Christ. 13For neither they themselves who are circumcised keep the law; but desire to have you circumcised, that they may glory in your flesh. 14But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.

Eph.5:26That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, 27That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. How are we to have the glory of God in us without His Holy Spirit being one with our and we being His New Temple in which He is to live in? 1 Cor.3:16Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 17If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are. 18Let 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. 19For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. 20And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain. 21Therefore let no man glory in men. men of this world are taken in their own craftiness and God uses not the proud or the boaster but the humble and contrite heart will God exalt in due time, if we abide in him He will abide in us; it is that simple but we must first come out from among them and not walk with the unclean, can we drink of the cup of the world and the cup of our Lord God? No we cannot, we cannot have mammon and Christ Jesus in our lives too! 2 Cor.5:14For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: 15And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again. 16Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more. 17Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 18And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; 19To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. 20Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God. 21For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

2 Cor.6:14Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 15And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 16And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 17Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. 18And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. Can two walk together? Yes only if they agree with one another; Amos.3:3Can two walk together, except they be agreed? 4Will a lion roar in the forest, when he hath no prey? will a young lion cry out of his den, if he have taken nothing? 5Can a bird fall in a snare upon the earth, where no gin is for him? shall one take up a snare from the earth, and have taken nothing at all? 6Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? shall there be evil in a city, and the LORD hath not done it? 7Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets. 8The lion hath roared, who will not fear? the Lord GOD hath spoken, who can but prophesy? Who can prophecy unless God the Spirit of Jesus Christ is in them, Rev.19:9And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God. 10And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus, worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. We cannot have Christ’s mind unless we are born-again of His Spirit in us: 1 Cor.2:1And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God. 2For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. 3And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling. 4And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: 5That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. 6Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: 7But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: 8Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 9But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. 10But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. 11For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. 12Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. 13Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 15But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.

 16For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? but we have the mind of Christ. Only if we are truly His and working in His harvest fields and always thinking about Him with prayer and thanksgiving praying continually for Him and our brothers who are still lost in this wicked world being deceived by the worldly wise! Only these will be found in the Lord’s universe forever;

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. You see the fear of the Lord is the beginning of man’s wisdom; when we understand we are His and He is our Creator and we are just worms mere dirt come to life which was given to us by Him; He is the creator of our Spirit, Ecc.12:17 as well as our very souls, Is.57:16For I will not contend for ever, neither will I be always wroth: for the spirit should fail before me, and the souls which I have made. There is no one that can stand before our Great God and not perish in His Glory; Heb.12:29For our God is a consuming fire. This is exactly what Paul talked about also in 1 Cor.3:8Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour. 9For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building. 10According 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. 11For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; 13Every 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. 14If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. God will not allow us to work in the Holy Spirit unless we have a pure heart and is working as His Lord Jesus worked; He is our example, Jn.14:6 there is no other way to Heaven no matter what man says, it is up to God to search our hearts and there is no deceiving God who knows the end from the beginning! Rev.22:1And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. 3And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: 4And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads. 5And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign forever and ever. 6And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done. 7Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book. 8And I John saw these things, and heard them: And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things. 9Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God. 10And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand. 11He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. 12And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. 13I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. 14Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. 15For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. 16I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. 17And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. 18For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 19And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. 20He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. 21The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

Here is a mystery that I will give you from the Lord given to me by the Holy Spirit; Look to Rev.3: The only ones that will not see the temptations of the world in the tribulation, not the beginning of tribulations but the Great tribulations the last three and half years; for even Israel went through the first several temptations and plagues in Egypt before there was separation between them and the Egyptians! Only those who have found the Love of the Lord with a heart that has been restored to the original heart of God in them will be the ones going to heaven in the rapture! God is Love as seen in 1 Jn.4:8He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. God came and died on the cross for you and I; When Jesus said My God My God why have you forsaken Me; He was not speaking to God, He was being prophetic, He knew who He was and what He had to do; He was being prophetic and speaking what all those who listen to preachers of the world teaching what they learned in the seminaries; instead of what the Holy Spirit wants them to teach and preach! Grace is for God’s favour to them who have completed what the Lord told us to do!

We must clean our vessels before He can come live in them! Only those who truly love the Lord God with all their hearts are going to allow their hearts to be crucified and the burden of the cross and this world lost pressing against theirs continually will be Jesus’ Servants and those who obey will then become His friends as seen in Jn.15, who have proven their love for Him and the brethren who are in the world all of them are your brother, did we not all come from Adam and Eve? The entire human race came from Noah’s loins after the flood, we are all brothers and only those who give their lives for their brothers just as Jesus did are worthy of His redemption! This is why in the book of Revelation of Jesus Christ to John there will be only one church found worthy of Rapture from the Temptation to come! It is seen in:

Rev.3:6He that hath an ear; let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. 7And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; 8I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. 9Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. 10Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. 11Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. 12Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. 13He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

You see Philadelphia is the only church who did not receive a warning to repent and return to their first works as the others were given a warning or God would come and take away their candlestick out of his place, except they repent, Rev.2:5 because the Nicolaitans are those who conquer the laity by their domination over the Saints! Who are these but the same ones who try our Lord’s patients with preaching the word of God and walk in a different way! Jesus showed us who they were in Mt.23 the hypocrites, who preach truth and walk another way, just as it is being done today! Here is what the perfect church of the living God will be doing; 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. Our words are meaningless unless they line up with our walk as seen in Ro.3:4God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged. Only a man’s works will he be rewarded for as Jesus said in Rev.22; Only when our walk and our talk all lines up to every word out of our instruction book called this Holy Bible! Are we really justified in the sight of God; let us see if we pass this little test; 1 Cor.6:11And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. Only if you have been baptized in His glorious name, for there is no salvation given in any other name but in the name of Jesus Christ Ac.4:12! The day that was preached by Peter and John 5000 were baptized and received into Jesus Christ for the remission of their sins! You see we search the scriptures for our salvation Jn.5:39, for Gen.1:1 to Rev.22:21 we cannot add one word to it or take away from it or we are left destitute and our names will be removed from His book of life or the plagues will be added unto us! We cannot go to the right hand or to the left, we must stay on His narrow path which leads to His Gate, for only Jesus is the door to eternal life!

Many churches still believe we can fight in wars and defend this country and even do they have memorial services on called forth days of celebrations for veterans’ and even another day for those who have lost their lives defending these United Sates but my God says do not do an evil so a good may come from it; evil is evil and no good thing will ever come from evil practices, See 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. Clear to 16Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits: 17Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. 18If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. 19Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. 20Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. 21Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

I wrote an article explaining why I could not and will not become a licensed minister for the UPCUI because they are no better than the Catholic Church who invited pagans into the living church of God and twisted the days around to better serve them and their worship of the Sun God as well as the others from which we get their trinity doctrines because they could not here what thus sayeth the Lord our God, Is.7:14; Jesus is the God who John the Baptist was preparing a way for as seen in Is.40: 3The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. This was not done in a corner in secret; it has been prophesied from Gen.3:15And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. That God would come and crush the head of the serpent! The sure mercies of King David, the saviour of the whole world, God our saviour the Holy One of Israel, Is.49: 26And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I the LORD am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob. Tit.2:10Not purloining, but shewing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things. 11For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, 12Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; 13Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; 14Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. 15These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee. We have one very important job to do; Jesus said He is the bread of life that came down from heaven but He said something long before this, which must be taken in consideration alone with this statement: Mt.4:4But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. This is the truth of the whole matter right here: We must mortify this flesh, Ro.8:13, only when we do the next verse will we see eternal life with our Lord:  14For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. Therefore let no man deceive you from your calling; if we are truly the children of the Lord our God we will be found in His favour (Grace) when we are found with His truths living in us: 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. If we judge ourselves against His word; we will not be judged, 1 Cor.11:31For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. 32But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world. You see the Lord chastises those who He loves to better strengthen us for the trials ahead and we will suffer for Him if we are truly His, it was promised; Jn.16:33These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. How can we be overcomers unless we overcome this world and its hypocrisy, Rv.2: and chapter 3 is all about overcomers who have opened their hearts to the Lord and suffer for His Righteousness sake in us, for we will bear His cross and die daily for Him and carry this gospel to the whole world who is lost and getting ready to die the eternal death in the fires of Hell, where the worm dieth not and they become the fuel for the fire, Eze.21:31-32 see also Eze.22:30-31!

There is a church which cares for and worships God in truth and in His Spirit, who seek after His will in their lives, but it will not be found in large complexes and multimillion dollar buildings or cathedrals! It will be found in homes of the Saints of God who walk this life as if it were their eternal life with God being in them! Because it is and we will not give it up for a moment of pleasure and lust of the flesh, or the pride of life or the lust of the eyes: 1 Jn.2:15Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 17And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever. Our brother James said it best: Jms.4:1From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members? 2Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. 3Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. 4Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. 5Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy? 6But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble: 7Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you8Draw 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.

The Epistles

  Here is one of the reasons so many people will be lost and not even know it! The Epistles were written to the reformed or born-again church who had been given signs and confirmation that they really had a supernatural experience as these had:   1 Cor.1:1Paul called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, and Sosthenes our brother, 2Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and our’s: 3Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. 4I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ; 5That in everything ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge; 6Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you: 7So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ: 8Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord. 10Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment. We speak only one word, and that is as an oracle of God. So I will only speak what has been given to us out of the Holy Bible by the leading of His Holy Spirit in me! See 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. (See Joel2:28 ffs.)

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. The next verse is for those who heed not the word of our God; they are the ones who received the word and had not root and the cares of this world came upon them and they dried up, and their last state was worse than if they had never heard the word of God! (2 Pt.2:17-22)

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.

What did they do on the day of Pentecost? Ac.2:1And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. 3And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. 4And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. It sat on each of them and they all spoke as the Holy Spirit gave them a perfect tongue even as King David said he spoke because the Lord had given him a perfect way. Ps.18:32It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect! Only those who have purified their hearts and strive to enter into His Presence will be these: 1 Cor.1:23But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumbling block, and unto the Greeks foolishness; 24But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. 25Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. 26For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: 27But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; 28And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: 29That no flesh should glory in his presence. 30But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: 31That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord. God has not changed, were not these promises given to those who are afar off? Ac.2:39For 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. Sure they have but we still need to put our faith to work and follow the Lord in all things we do: 40And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation. See 2 Cor.6:14Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 15And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 16And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 17Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. 18And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. When you find these you have found the true church of the living God in Jesus Christ! They will all speak the same thing and walk as Jesus walked, He said to go and sin no more, Jn.8:11 to the adulteress and even to the Lame man Jesus found in the Temple latter; Jesus told him to go and sin no more unless a worse thing come upon you, Jn.5:14! God changes not, how much more so to us who have supposively been baptized into his Spirit?

For this reason I could not bear the infallibility of the UPCI and the Catholic Churches, because they put their word above scripture and walk in the ways of men’s doctrines and Dogma! Only the word of God is irrefutable and infallible!

Man needs to quit thinking he is wise because he has mastered the Etymology or understanding of the original language; man had better rely on the one who wrote it: 2 Pt.1:20Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 21For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. Who is Jesus Christ as seen in 1 Pt.1:7That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: 8Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: 9Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls. 10Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you: 11Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow12Unto 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. To those who are fully given his word as seen in:            2 Sam.23:2The Spirit of the LORD spake by me, and his word was in my tongue.

We know that when we speak and it is as an Oracle of God as seen in 1 Pt.4:7But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer. 8And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins: 9Use hospitality one to another without grudging. 10As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. 11If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion forever and ever. Amen. 12Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: 13But 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. 14If 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. 15But 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. 16Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf. 17For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? 18And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? 19Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator. (KJV) Here is the link King James Version.

The little things matter to the one who is perfect in His every way, how much more are His children to do? We are to be holy because He is Holy; 1 Pt.1:13Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; 14As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: 15But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; 16Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. 17And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man’s work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear: 18Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; 19But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: We have been purchased with the very blood of God, Ac.20:28Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. The blood that cannot be purchased by anything we can do, but give Him our hearts as an innocent child of God, for there is none greater in His kingdom than a child because of the purity of their innocent hearts!

Now in Closing

 I wrote an article Called confirming and condoning the Articles of Affirmation to the UPCI org, which I gave to my then Pastor, which I received this remark from him, “How did you get so Holy?” I simply told him I had been in the presence of Jesus Christ, once you have, you will see life in a new light, His light! Now here is the article:

Confirming and Condoning the Articles of Affirmation

Of Faith

Ps.101:6 Mine eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me: he that walketh in a perfect way, he shall serve me.  

  I will attempt to show why I cannot and why I feel we should stop this practice of making our ministers guilty of heretical practices; when we make them sign the articles of affirmation of our faith; what we teach in the Lord’s scriptures and how we are to live our lives before our creator. Who are we to set parameters and boundaries?  Is not the Bible our instruction book for that? If I can show one reason why we should not, then all of these practices are to be in question and should be stopped right away, for just the mere fear of offending the Father above and stepping into the realm of blasphemy of our very own scriptures, such as 2Tim3:16All 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.

And James5:12But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, and neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation. What part of condemnation did we miss?

Condemnation or condemned may refer to: A strongly worded rebuke (beat back, chop down, as in hack down a forest or grove, to lay waste, as in kill it.)                                      Damnation, the antithesis of salvation:

Jesus on Oaths Taking: Matt.5:

33Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths:34But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God’s throne: 35Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.36Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black.37But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatso-ever is more than these cometh of evil.

First we are not to sign pledges or oaths to anyone but our Father which is in heaven Exo.20.1-5:

1And God spake all these words, saying,2I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.3Thou shalt have no other gods before me.4Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.5Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me. This clearly shows that your piece of paper is just as bad as being an idol that we have to bow down to, in order to preach (serve) His word in our churches of the UPCI; I thought they were His churches!  If anyone was to know better than this it should have been us. In God alone will I trust all my actions and affirmations to, Him only will I pledge an oath to, for only He is worthy. Rom9:15 from Exo.33:19 I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show mercy on whom I will show mercy, where is the UPCI’s mercy? By deitizing our words of the articles of affirmation over scripture we are in fact no better than the Cardinal Law of the Roman Catholics in trying to make ourselves deity above all scripture, and into a denominational universal church, are we not?

As I go forward with my rebuttal of the articles of Faith, I do not have to but prove one error with its being in violation to God’s commandments and that should be but enough, to discontinue its use, and we would be better off to be teaching His scriptures, than to be trying to make man made laws and manmade doctrines, in trying to justify our views and practices. Is it not enough that all men will face their Lord on judgment day? Phil.2:10That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; then why are we to bow before this man made constitution of the articles of affirmation of faith? Have we not learned a lesson from our fore fathers, such as the Sanhedrin, as well as the Roman Catholics? Why are we pursuing these things? Is it so important to try and keep out the adversary, when God can do that all by Himself? Is not our God all powerful and all things are possible with Him alone all by Himself? Matt.19:26But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.

Mark10:27And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible. And Luke18:27And he said, (Jesus) the things which are impossible with men are possible with God.

The Lord alone is all sufficient to bring about salvation why then are we trying to hinder His people with our rules and regulations? Our compassion and tolerance to sinners and the faithful alike where are they? Prov26:12Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? There is more hope of a fool than of him. Prov.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.4An high look, and a proud heart, and the plowing of the wicked, is sin. Are not our Presbyters treading on dangerous grounds, when they put themselves above His scriptures? Are we not to strive to have unity?

Where is the unity when our ministers must sign an illegal oath in order to stay with the UPCI? For in James we should have learned that our ya should be ya and our ney should be ney and that is all that is required of the Lord’s people: (James5: 12But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation.) Then why are we to be forced into an oath? Prov.21: 11When the scorner is punished, the simple is made wise: and when the wise is instructed, he receiveth knowledge.12The righteous man wisely considereth the house of the wicked: but God overthroweth the wicked for their wickedness. Should not we consider His words for instruction, and then consider ourselves as wise? For our Lord will not be mocked; are we not acting foolishly? For without a doubt this UPCI is dividing its own house and a house divided cannot stand.

UPCI is trying to instruct its own ministry as though they were children, with these articles of faith; we all are to seek and work out our own salvation with fear and trembling according to scripture; surely we in the ministry have searched the scriptures and are capable of rightly dividing the word and teaching the same to our people so that all shall be saved even ourselves: (1Tim4: 16Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.) Instead of being accused of a spirit of immaturity, as to be considered as one of those that need to be weaned from our mother’s breast: Should we not do as the Holy Spirit instructs us to do and say to our congregations?  Should this be all that is required of God’s apostles, preachers, evangelist, prophets and teachers as well? I thought Gal.1:8But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that, which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 9As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. And Rev.22:18For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 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.

Surely God was saying we were not to add or take away from this book, surely He was saying the entire Bible; would He not mean the whole, of all the books of His scriptures, as in every word as instructed by Paul in 2Tim3:16 as well?

For we all must stand before our creator and justify ourselves Gal.6:1-18: (1Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. 2Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.3For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.4But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.5For every man shall bear his own burden.6Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things.7Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.8For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.9And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.10As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.11Ye see how large a letter I have written unto you with mine own hand.12As many as desire to make a fair shew in the flesh, they constrain you to be circumcised; only lest they should suffer persecution for the cross of Christ.13For neither they themselves who are circumcised keep the law; but desire to have you circumcised, that they may glory in your flesh.14But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.15For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.16And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.17From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus.18Brethren, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.)

And should we be as our Lord and Saviour and not be a respecter of persons as in James 2:1My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons. 2For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment; 3And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool: 4Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts? 5Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him? 6But ye have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats? 7Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called? 8If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well: 9 But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.10For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. Is that not what this affirmation of Faith is but a judging system for the righteous-ness of UPCI minister’s to teach to our congregations other than just true apostolic doctrines? How can the UPCI board stand before our creator on judgment day without being judged by their own standard’s, my Bible tells me judge not lest ye be judged. (Matt7:12)

Are not the words of the Lord’s guidelines sufficient for His believers to preach from His irrefutable Words 2Tim3:16, 17 is all we need to concern ourselves about; instead of signing something that carries no weight according to God’s authority. Just who do we think we are? Is this not the foolishness of man that is surely to perish before our Lord? That we put our rules and legislature above His written authority. Who are you trying to fool and bring along side your own folly but another foolish man unaware of God’s irrefutable scriptures, and bowing down under the pressure of his peers to keep a certification so he can stay in your organization just so he can attend your B.O.T.T. and to be able to vote on your committees’ ?

Does not our Lord tell us that we are not to be a respecter of persons, why are you? If one goes to your schools of instruction; one is awarded a certificate of completion and rewarded with credentials, surely this is as much as receiving a bribe in the disguise of an education. You have made us into a denominational church when you alone say that no one without a license from UPCI can stand and minister a sermon in one of the Lord’s churches without one of your credentials, what are we to do when the Lord gives us a calling, to go and preach, and teach; let alone, as He commissioned each and every one of us when He said to pick up our cross and follow Him, did He not? And if we don’t we are none of His and not worthy of Him. We cannot do this unless, we hold your credentials, and we cannot hold your credentials unless we sign your article of Affirmation of Faith; what is the reasoning behind this? You have made us no better than the Roman Catholic Church as trying to be deity themselves and setting doctrine over that of our Lord’s.

After we have been redeemed with His blood and baptized in His glorious Spirit and become new, why are we being withheld from doing His scripture for the sake of manmade traditions again?  2Cor5:  17Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 18And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; 19To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. 20Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God. 21For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

The great commission of Jesus unto His disciples has given all of us the authority to go and preach repentance, baptism in Jesus name, for no other name is given by which we must be saved or in which salvation comes and to be filled with His Spirit and reborn in newness of life in the Spirit and no longer bound by the flesh, are we not? But yet we cannot baptize our converts without your credentials, let alone start a church of our lord Jesus Christ in our home or Lord help us if we want to bring salvation to the General public, without your authority, where is the reconciliation with that policy?

The Bible tells us that no one man is to interpret the prophesies or scriptures (2Pet.1:20Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.) of our Lord, for the Holy Ghost will instruct all of us in all truths and lead all men in all righteousness of God’s will, He will direct our steps and paths. Matt.6:33 & Rev.3:20 let us just take a look at Rev.3:20Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.21To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.22He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

If we seek the Lord with all that is in us and walk in all righteousness of the Holy Spirit then we are commissioned, no we are commanded to go and preach this glorious gospel to the entire world, to all people and nations to all that draw a breathe. Matt.10:38And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.39He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.

So why is it, that we cannot do all that is commanded of us by our Lord in the UPCI without signing this document that man has made up, instead of following the word of the Lord?

If we vary away from one scripture, we might as well vary away from all scripture. When you promote and tell us we are not to abide or abed any wrong doers and unfaithful or nonbelievers and those that destroy property, and we are not to yoke ourselves to those that are nonbelievers or those who are unfaithful and then in the next breath tell us that we do not support killing and that we will not support cowards, and yet you want us to serve a country that is in direct conflict with our Lord’s teachings, and you want us to aid in the support in abiding with our government’s killing and destroying the people of Islam or any race for that matter: This would be against the Lord’s commandments, and our own government is trying to get away from its alliances with Israel as well and we all know those who curse Israel will be cursed and those who bless His people will be blessed. So why are we to make a pledge or oath to our government: that is in direct conflict with His living word in which we are to abide by, which you are promoting in the articles of faith? (Matt.5:43, 43Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.44But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; etc.) Take heed to your Affirmation my brothers. I will take this stand only for our Country and for our Enemies and you also; Luke 23:34Then said Jesus, Father; forgive them; for they know not what they do. As well as in Acts7:60; Matt5:44; (Luke5:27-31:  27And after these things he went forth, and saw a publican, named Levi, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he said unto him, Follow me.28And he left all, rose up, and followed him.29And Levi made him a great feast in his own house: and there was a great company of publicans and of others that sat down with them.30But their scribes and Pharisees murmured against his disciples, saying, Why do ye eat and drink with publicans and sinners? 31And Jesus answering said unto them, They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick.32I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.)

How can you tell us to abide with them who willingly destroy their enemies against God’s words and to work in a role of support to help them who destroy, which in the previous paragraph you told us not to do so? You cannot have it both ways, you are contradicting yourself.

I know we are to keep our allegiances to our country and pay our taxes and to keep her laws, as Jesus told us to render unto them who had authority over us.  But that is as far as we have to go to being compliant with their laws, for me to obey; I must keep myself righteous to my Lord and Saviour and our Father’s scriptures, and that is all I have to worry about. We are not to take oaths and we are to keep the Royal Law (James5:12; 2:8) as for it is like unto the first to love our brethren, our brothers in this world and even those who are sinning and bring them to the Lord, and to Love our God with all that is in our possession, our mind, spirit, soul, and strength and everything that is in us, we are to give freely as was given to us by our Lord; as Peter and John did on the way into the Temple, all that we have, we are to share with our fellow man. James2:8If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well: 9But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors. 10For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.

I cannot see how standing up for and supporting our country as it destroys her enemies is going to keep my salvation with the Lord. I never heard one of our representatives saying that they reached this decision after great and meaningful prayer and fasting, and that the Lord told him that we were to go kill all or any of them, but I heard Bush say that the whole world will see what happens when someone attacks our nation, I always thought the Bible said to repay evil with kindness so that your enemies will reap buckets full of hot coal Prov.25: 21If thine enemy be hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he be thirsty, give him water to drink: 22For thou shalt heap coals of fire upon his head, and the LORD shall reward thee. And vengeance is mine sayeth the Lord; Romans12:17Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.18If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.19Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. 20Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.21Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.Heb.10: 30For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. 31It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. If UPCI follows on this course of oath taking then will it not fall by its own words?

So why are we to take an oath to this country as well as this UPCI and put their oaths over our Lords scriptures and our oath at repentance with our maker as being our all in all? Even though I agree with most all of what is in the oath or the articles of affirmation of Faith that is beside the point, it is the Precedence that they are trying to set and get away with which is the principal of the thing.

We allow our organization to do this once; what is next? We alone should know by all means who is sovereign, why is it then we are always trying to make ourselves equal to Him? Have we not learned anything from our fore-father’s in this and even in other religious movements, as well as governments?

If you can find fault in one law of the Articles of Faith then all are in question and we all must be aware of God’s precepts upon precepts when we cross one we are to correct it or find ourselves an adversary against the very one we say we love and follow. Isa.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.  Can we violate one of His Laws so that good will abound, “God Forbid” as Paul would say in Romans6: Romans 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.5For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: 6Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. 7For he that is dead is freed from sin.8Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him:9Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over Him. 10For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.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 then, can we then in all good consciousness sign anything that could be wrong on one point, I think not. As for me and my house we will serve the Lord and Him only will we serve. (Josh.24:15)

Dear brethren, let us pray in all faith that we will receive enlightenment from our Lord Jesus in this matter as to keep our sanctification, consecration that comes from Him alone and not from a certificate. I don’t know about the rest of you; all I can do is try and keep my righteousness that I received from Him and I must be about His business regardless of the UPCI’s position. God help us all if it comes down to ministering to the general public about our Lord’s mercy and grace and not being able to because of a lack of a card from man’s organizational institution in as much as we see that we have become in this instance!  Who are we to answer to God or man?

I suggest we show some discernment in this matter and remember what the apostles taught us in Acts4:19But Peter and John answered and said unto them: Whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you more than unto God, judge ye.

For surely the Lord our God has called us to serve Him only and to teach His ways, by the power of His Spirit in us we are called to fulfill all righteousness. This is getting near impossible with our organizational structure in the UPCI. For we cannot fulfil scripture as it was written by our Lord with the ways our churches are currently structured and its bylaws and so called constitution or Article of Affirmation of Faith; I rest my case on the Affirmation of Faith, with this Prov.30:6Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

We must admit that all are called but few are chosen, who are we to decide who has been chosen unless we hear those who wish to preach His word, and allow the Holy Spirit to guide us with His power of discernment and move us in a direction of truth by the hearing of His words being preached.

One last example of how our structured rules are not of a Biblical structure Eph.4:1-32. I have shown my Pastor many times how the Lord has shown me or told me to tell our congregation as well as the rest of the churches things that He wanted us to do, and then the Pastor brings in an Evangelist and confirms my prophetic preaching to my Pastor several times and as yet, I am not regarded as a Prophet and if I was, should I not have been proven by now? And in the Lord’s Holy Word we find that a Prophet is held in first order after an Apostle in Eph4:11And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: So would this not entitle me to hold such a distinguished piece of paper as those of you?

If our church government cannot remedy this and other types of questionable actions then why are we to attend this type of church and pay our tithes to those who are not properly structuring our churches, in a true Biblical system set by our Apostles doctrines, the very same, that we say we are teaching?

No matter the gift of God that we receive from Him, we still must go to your schools and pay the bribe price of your education, before we are to enter into the alumni of your prestigious ranks. How hypocritical, this is why I see that you have decided to put just another man made hindrance (tradition) before our Lord God’s people, because of man’s arrogance to be the creator, instead of the created. This you do to support the claim that because we have gone to school, college, and graduate college, surely the general public will let us bully them into submission, by our vast knowledge we are so much better than they and thusly you have just become a respecter of persons. For you respect those who have college doctorates’ over us who do not.

Where is the grace, where is the compassion to bring a brother of lower degree to a higher degree?  Where is the benevolence of God that we are to be teaching our congregations?  How are we about His business when we are always about our structure and honoring our leaders in our own ranks, and you cannot tell me that there is no favoritism in generational children coming up through the ranks?  If it were not for Isa.59:21 and the truth of this word being preached, I would not be in your churches, but the hypocrisy is getting hard to take, I’m not judging, I’m just stating facts; I would love to become one of the administration; so that I could vote on such matters but we have had that taken away from us with the way the structure is currently. Only Pastors of certain ranking can vote in the general conference; which is wrong and is yet again being a respecter of persons.

Why is it not open to the whole public and open to voting from all the congregations of all the people, even those abroad (such as the AIMer’s, are they not doing the work of a missionary?); we could hold them in a coliseum or a sports arena, and open them up to state wide evangelism at the same time?

Why is it that our organization cannot become more transparent on our web site as well, it took me a week to find out who our general superintendant was for our district, just to ask him what our regulations were so I could get my requirements meet to become a certified minister, just so I can baptize my converts; if I can bring them to the lord and get them through repentance, and receive Jesus as their personal savior you would think I could baptize them, but not according to UPCI. Now I’m no certified theologian, philosopher, psychologist, or any of the above but I have a strong desire to know all of Him and I’m in an in-depth study of all of His ways which makes me somewhat a Christian Theologian by proxy, and I would much rather be for UPCI than against, but how can I, with all that is going on in our ranks? Right now the words of John the Baptist come to mind, and we are not making His paths straight, for they seem kind of, not so much crooked but really curved, and we are not to get out of His path to the right hand or the left, narrow is the way, is it not? Prov.29:4The king by judgment establisheth the land: but he that receiveth gifts overthroweth it. Our Lord established our church, and now we have to pay to preach in it: We see how our church is getting undermined from the top down, is this not how the veil was ripped in two? Why are we setting doctrine? The Bible does that all by itself without us! Prov.30:13There is a generation, O how lofty are their eyes! And their eyelids are lifted up.

And we are supposed to know how the Lord feels about High and Haughty eyes and a Proud Heart! But if we repent, we will be shown mercy from our Lord, Prov.28:13He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.

Now I know no other Church Organization that I would prefer to belong to than the UPCI, for I dearly love the way we reach out to the lost with missions, evangelism, and the rest of our depts. It sorely pains me in my heart, to have to say anything against our foundational truths, or the way we are to conduct ourselves. If we stay entirely within our scriptural truths and basic doctrines handed down from our founding Apostles then I would gladly keep my trap shut, and not be like one of the Proverbs I keep bring up. I pray that I’m not overstepping boundaries right now, such as those in Prov.29:20Seest thou a man that is hasty in his words? There is more hope of a fool than of him. And 30:10Accuse not a servant unto his master, lest he curse thee, and thou be found guilty.

I can only pray for forgiveness if I am; it is not my intentions to cause dissentions; and ask the Lord to forgive me, for who am I to council the Lord’s chosen, who try their best to lead us in all righteousness with all their hearts, minds, souls, spirits, and strengths, I’m sure! I’m proud of our people for the zeal and the fire that we have burning in our hearts. Only let our zeal not be in vain, but in all reverence to our Lord and creator our Jesus, let Him lead us in this matter I pray. In the only name that we behold to be Devine the name above all names in Jesus’ name: Amen, and Amen.

God bless us and let us pray on this and come to His understanding in these situations we are facing here and now, and finally let us do His will: All wisdom and glory be forever yours, sweet Jesus lead us on in your righteousness our King of Kings, Jesus our lord and Redeemer, save us now from ourselves in Jesus name I pray Amen.

Let me leave this thought with all concerned in this matter: Psalm 131:1Lord, my heart is not haughty, nor mine eyes lofty: neither do I exercise myself in great matters, or in things too high for me.2Surely I have behaved and quieted myself, as a child that is weaned of his mother: my soul is even as a weaned child.3Let Israel hope in the LORD from henceforth and forever. Should not we do the same, and let the Lord be Lord and we follow Him and just humble ourselves and preach and make disciples of all people and nations and have that be enough for us!             

In Closing

Ecc.3:14I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be forever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him.

Before we continue with anything, above all, let us remember one more thing, that to fear the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and when we fear Him, this is truly understanding, why must we continue as though we are in darkness; let us come out into His eternal light and step back and just resume our lives in great faith, and allow Him room to do His will instead of ours!  In closing this final thought let us not make it more difficult than it already is trying to please God our Lord Jesus than this. Ecc.12:13Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. 14For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

This is truly the totality of the matter, let God be God and let us try to resume our position, as to be His humble and faithful servants and that is all we are! Finishing up with one last excerpt from our own Meet the UPCI manual for up and coming ministers, that is required reading, to be read from the Word Afalme Elective Series: (Page number 47) To the ancient Israelites, Moses said, “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.4:2

Later, Agur added, “every word of God is pure: He is a shield unto them that put their trust in Him. Add thou not unto His words, least He reprove thee, and thou be found a liar. Prov.30:5-6”

“The only safe course of action for those who wish to please God is to reject all doctrines which appeal to any authority but the Scripture”.

These are your words that I quoted from not mine, you cannot have it both ways, you have to live by God’s commandments and scriptures and make them our own commandments too! James2:10For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. And 5:12But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, and neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation. Jesus said in Matt.5:37But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.

And finally 1Tim4:16 16Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.

Thank you for allowing me to voice my humble opinion, and far be it from me, to try and set any rules, let alone doctrines, for that matter; all the Apostles have already done that as far as I’m concerned, wouldn’t you also have to agree with this prophet, laymen, wantta be preacher, and say so yourself?

One last quote from the required reading course books for our Local Ministry License: From “Their Story: 20th Century Pentecostals”, pages 20, 21: By Stopfard A. Brooke said, “If a thousand old beliefs were ruined in our march for truth, we must still march on.”  And Emerson said “The greatest homage we can pay to truth is to use it.”

Final Comments

Acts2:47Praising God, and having favor with all the people. Can we say that today? If not then we have lost the true apostolic heritage that we claim to have!

2Tim1:7For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. John4:24God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. Then if we want to worship and move in the supernatural realms with God in the Holy Spirit, then we have to be in truth or the Spirit will leave us for the Holy Ghost will not dwell in sinful vessel. Gal.6:7Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. Remember 2Tim2:19-26, if we follow all scripture correctly we would be in persecution right now if we were to follow Paul’s teachings in 2Tim1-18 and adhere to the heart of the scriptures from Matthew to Revelations we surely would be in dire straits as the apostles were continually. The reason we are not is because we follow what we think is going to get us by the Lord’s requirements with the least amount of stripes, but why are we just fooling ourselves? If we know the scripture as we should, as Paul said in Phil.2:12Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling: Then we should endeavor to know the very heart of the matter of everyone of the Lord’s Devine scriptures so that we adhere to every syllable, and not violate the intention or His very heart and mind of the matter!

These and many other scriptures are being violated every day and our Lord is very weary of the lack of seriousness and reverence we have behind the pulpit and lack of enthusiasm and fire in His people. Every one of our material possessions, children, wives, and even our jobs we put before our master’s service, to reach the lost and dying generations going to hell as we speak. This truly is our first calling after receiving the Holy Ghost and that is to reach those who are in the world and to bring them to a new understanding and way of life; and then we set the perimeters in which they can operate in and tell them we must come out from among the heathens and then watch our pastors sail off on another cruse with them that are in the world. What a hypocrisy of the very nature of the scripture to come out from among them and I will make you a priestly nation!  These are those who are spending and miss apportioning the Lord’s money. We find them spending money on trips called fellowship going off yet again to a show in Branson, when they themselves tell us not to go to amusement parks and football, baseball, and some say public schools because of the sex education classes being in a mixed population in the classroom or even the material being discussed should be discussed between the parent and the child; but yet we cannot keep our pews separated from having girls as well as boys on the same pews. This was not the way of our forefather’s and are we not in violation of the commandment to honor our fathers and mothers and do as they have instructed their children? The Lord changes not why are we? Now you know well as I that I could make this an all night sermon on the things that need to be discerned and corrected!

Finale Remarks

In conclusion, I feel we owe it to Brother Russell as well as the UPCI, since this is not a perfect world and always in transition, even though the Lord is not changing, we must not either. In all honesty and righteousness, we must come clean and confess our faults before the Lord Jesus in order to make His book of life ours. Matt.5:48 was not put in the Bible as some goal to shoot at but it was put in there to do and observe with fear and trembling!  48Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. This Bible we have is not just for guide lines but it is to be laid down as a law before us to live or perish by! Therefore if the UPCI is doing wrong, should we continue along with the same unethical principals: And considering our moral obligations to our Lord’s irrefutable words and to continue and allow Brother Russell our pastor to violate ethics as well as moral understanding before our Lord as well as us that now know the truth of the matter at hand before us? Should he not if he is signing these articles of affirmation to receive his credentials, must he not carry out what he has signed? And if so should we not as a church stand behind our pastor and adhere to all of the UPCI’S codes of conduct, even though they cannot keep them themselves, just to keep our faith in the organization we claim to be part of? We love that name Pentecostal but we should be looking to a more righteous title and that is as our founding fathers titles as Apostolic Apostles and servants of the Lord Jesus Christ.

I have been brought to my knees before our Lord Jesus and have seen Him and I will have you know He is not happy. The only scripture that I know out of the whole Bible which describes His feelings with this world is this; Luke12:49I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled?

There are many other things that were told and shown me that I cannot even begin to tell, words do no justice; they would have to be spoken in an unknown language, a heavenly language!  And the more I speak unto you about these matters the more accountability you are going to be responsible for! Luke12: 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. Now if Brother Russell went and agreed to uphold some manmade traditions should not we; we are a corporate church body that is to support our pastor and adhere to these worthless policies; for truly it is the Lord that knows all and sees to the very heart of man and knows all his ways and his outcome before we know ourselves. This is how He knows whose heart to forgive and who is righteous and will try with all their hearts to fulfill His requirements, commandments, statutes, and precepts. If Brother Russell signed it, we need to start living by it! Who holds the greater sin the Lord will and has already sorted out but Cindy and I will not be part of it!

So in all actuality this is our good bye to this congregation and we are in truth just letting you know what I know because the Lord gave me to this body of believers, and I have told all of these things to Brother Russell and know you know enough, Brother Russell knows the rest of what the Lord has given me to tell him and the things I still know that are for me and Him (our Lord) and no other until the time that He will tell me to speak it. Whether Brother Russell gives these to you is up to him but I will leave you with this: John4:44For Jesus himself testified, that a prophet hath no honour in his own country. So with this being said, I will cut this off for I could truly continue for days, months, and years could not contain the truths that the Lord has shown me and continues to show me. As soon as I quit giving His testimony to whomever He will allow me to tell; I will go home to Him, but there is still work to do here, while we have the light we are to continue in His ways! What I can tell you is this, Gabriel has the trumpet to his lips and is ready to blow, for us to meet Him in the air and to go home for awhile before we come back to rule with Him in His kingdom on earth. When the last soul is saved in the last remote country and Island in the Pacific we will be going home! Mtt.24:14And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. This is why our priority needs to be reaching the lost at all costs, this will allow the end time progressions to come to pass sooner, it is up to us to reach them, and we need to be about His business when He comes or perish! This is truly how He knows who are His, if they will forsake all for Him and do His work. John14:15; 15:14 and Matt.12:48But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? And who are my brethren? 49And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! 50For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.

I will not lose my inheritance and will be about His business when He comes, as for me and my house we will follow Him in all things, no matter what comes to us, it is in the Lord’s hands to show us what we must suffer for His Name! If you have been baptized in His Holy Spirit we are called to serve Him with every fiber of our beings, with all our gifts from Him, for if we do He will give further gifts according to your faith! So do as Paul said and seek the best of those: 1Cor12: 31But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way. Now covet in the Greek used here means to seek as well as hold on to as well desire for, you seek the Lord and He will come closer to you.Matt.6: 33But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. So in word or deed, do in the name of Jesus Christ my brothers, keep the faith at all costs to you, because if we are truly doing right in our Lord’s eyes, we will start getting persecuted, it was fore told by our fore father’s if we are not, it is because we are too close to and living as those who will be condemned. For one reason they have not put Jesus first in their hearts, minds, spirits and do not give Him all their strengths!

Our country is going to perish because it is living a lie; it is said in God we trust and it does not! If it trusted in God it would allow God to protect it from her enemies, and if she were truly living correctly she wouldn’t have any enemies to begin with, if we were to spend our nations budget on defense, converting people and helping our brothers and sisters all counties would respect living for our God because only good comes from doing good for evil. This would truly prove our faith with our Lord; we all know the lesson taught by our Lord Jesus in Matthew chapter 5 why are we not living it, where is our faith? Why would any country try and destroy a country that was trying to help them and feed them? If they don’t want to know the Lord our way we are to keep helping them and be that light on the hill Jesus was talking about and eventually they would convert to loving a God that was good and generous as ours, if you keep my commandments all these things will be added unto you! We need to put our faith in our everyday lives, as well as All His Commandments not just the ones we want! Sin is Sin one equals death! Lord knows I could preach on, for there is so much He wants you to know and find, but we are to seek out our own salvation with fear and trembling! I’m out of time but not out sermon, now let us come to a decision in this matter, I know what I’m going to do but this is a personal decision for each of you to make, I have done what I was told to do! Now seek out your own salvation! Just keep this truth in mind; John4: 24God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit (not only the Holy Ghost but in the very heart of the matter, the true spirit of the commandment, by doing it with a pure heart, willingly and out of Love for Him) and in truth. I usually never use the Amplified Bible translation but it is so much more descriptive than the King James I must use it here: Gal6:7Do not be deceived and deluded and misled; God will not allow Himself to be sneered at (scorned, disdained, or mocked by mere pretensions or professions, or by His precepts being set aside.) [He inevitably deludes himself who attempts to delude God.] For whatever a man sows; that and that only is what he will reap. KJV: 7Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. So in conclusion let us pray for guidance and for forgiveness for violating His scripture in our ignorance; for our Father which is with us will surely forgive a repentive heart; as we try to find the truth of the matter, who is with us right now with us in our presence as I speak to all of you. For where two or more are gathered in My name He is in the midst of them; so let us pray to Him now for guidance into all truths!

Rev. G. L. Boyett, Sunday Aug. 7, 2011

Revised Sunday Nov.13, 2011.

See Lk.18:7And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? 8I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?

Jn.8:31Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; 32And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. And 51Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death. Lk.11:28But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it. The greatest Bible study we could ever do is one on obedience to God’s words!

I have another Sermon or Bible study called Man lost His salvation by not knowing the true definition to two words; Grace and Understanding! I will post it next after this one.

Not knowing who Jesus is and

Presumptuous Sin will keep us out of Heaven!

(Mt.22:14For many are called, but few are chosen.)

 I just wish people would start living like they truly intended to go there (Heaven) and keep unto our Lord’s words of wisdom so they actually could! Unless we are a true disciple of Jesus Christ in word and deed we are not going (Lk.6:46)! Lk.14:24For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden shall taste of my supper.25And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned, and said unto them,26If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.27And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.28For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it? Col.3:10And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:11Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.12Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;13Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.14And above all these things put on charity (Love), which is the bond of perfectness.15And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.16Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.17And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.18Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.19Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them.20Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord.21Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged.22Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh; not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God; 23And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; 24Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ. 25But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons. There is no forgiveness for presumptuous sin; to those who heed not the word of God! If you ignore God’s truths you will face His wrath because you were in your own will! Read Mt.12:31-32 and how this chapter ends; only those who are in the will of the Father will see heaven as spoken in verses 46-50! Jesus is the way, the truth and the Life we are to emulate (Jn.14:6), just as the Apostle Paul instructed us in 1 Cor.11:1; which is a commandment we are to keep, because Jesus said if we will obey His words; we will likewise do the same to those who spoke by His Ordination as being His chosen representative as seen in Jn.15:1-20! If we keep not His instructions to us; why should any of us think we are His chosen few? Mt.20:16So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen. Mt.22:14For many are called, but few are chosen. All because they chose their ways instead of our Lord’s ways! Mt.7:12Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.13Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in there at:14Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Read Lk.13:23Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them,24Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.25When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are:26Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets.27But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity. These verses start off with the word strive in the answer to verse 23; This means we will face difficulties in reaching Him in perfection to His words of Truth, the word here in the Greek for strive is Agōnizesthe, Ἀγωνίζεσθε, from which we get agonize; this is exactly what Jesus said we would face if we come after Him in Jn.16:33These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. Only those who overcome this life of trials are going to be His servants who kept to His given words of Truth! Even as stated in Revelation’s chapter 2 and chapter 3. Therefore repent and do the first works you did or He will come and remove your candlestick from its place, Rev.2:5! My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge, Hos.4:6! In these last days there will be a drought: Amos chapter 8:11Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD: 12And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it. This is the very day we live in my friends, no one reads their Holy Bibles through each year anymore do they? Some do but only the ones who know who Jesus is will be in His Kingdom, Jn.8:24I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I Am [he], ye shall die in your sins! Why did they always want to pick up stones and stone Jesus? It was because Jesus was claiming to be just who He said He was; the I Am; Ex.3:14 as we see in verse 58; 58Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am. 59Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by. Which explains perfectly Jn.12:45And he that seeth Me seeth Him that sent me. Because Jesus is God in the flesh not some manmade theology or philosophy of vain dogma! Apostle Paul knew who Jesus was, 1 Tm.3:16And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory. Let us do a little study on the word glory! God said to Isaiah that He would not give His glory to another, as we read in Is.42:8 and again in 48:11 and we see that Jesus showed everyone the glory of God in Jn.11:40; and Paul said if the church father’s had known who Jesus was they would not have crucified the Lord of Glory in 1 Cor.2:8, who Peter said was both LORD and the CHRIST in Ac.2:36 who is LORD OF ALL in Ac.10:36 just before he baptized the first gentile convert in the glorious name of Jesus Christ; because there is no other name by which salvation comes, Ac.4:12: So that kind of narrows the straight path to the Lord’s Kingdom doesn’t it? Only those who know who Jesus is; and only those who were baptized in His name, rather than reciting some verse in the Holy Bible over someone in baptism; they actually fulfilled what that verse actually said to do; they baptized in the name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit; and that name is Jesus Christ; Jesus is the I Am everything anyone will ever need Him to be! Who was John the Baptist to prepare a way for? Ans. Is.40:3The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. That is exactly what John the Baptist did in Mt.3:3; Jesus said we search the scriptures for salvation; and every scripture is about its author, the very one who had it written, Jn.5:39; because they are His words written by Holy men as they were carried along in the Holy Spirit as they wrote it, as seen in 2 Pt.1:20-21! They wrote about the suffering of a servant that was to suffer for our transgressions, as they were told to write it by the one who was to suffer as we see in 1 Pt.1:7-11! Our faith will be tried in the fire of vain theologies and the doctrines of foolish men who should have listened to the Holy Spirit made flesh who wrote it, as we see yet again in scripture Zech.12:10And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced: written over 500 years before He showed up to fulfill His every word to us! Lk.24:44And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me. 45Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures, 46And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: 47And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. How many of us were baptized into that glorious name by which His Salvation comes; should it not also come by His own name as the one who gives it? Jesus said if we ask anything in His name we shall have it, Jn.14:14 and then we would receive Him who gave us His salvation; as seen in that scripture as we look to Jn.14:14If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.15If ye love me, keep my commandments.16And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;17Even the Spirit of truth (Jn.1:17 Jesus is the Spirit of Grace and 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. That is the baptism of the Holy Spirit from which all spirits will return to; is to the one who gave it, Ecc.12:7 because God is that Spirit; Jn.4:24 and unless we worship Him in His truths and in His Spirit we are none of His yet still as seen by scripture; Ro.8:1There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.2For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.3For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:4That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.5For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.6For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.7Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.8So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.9But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.10And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.11But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.12Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.13For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.14For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. Each and every day is our worship to Him who gives eternal life; and it is only given to those who will abide in Him and His word (Ro.12:1-2); not mine, not yours, but His words or you will end up doing just as King Saul did and lose your kingdom to your own will, following your own theologies, philosophies, and having a corrupt psychology because you never received the mind of Jesus Christ in you as seen in scripture yet again: 1 Cor.2:1-16 because you never received His baptisms of the water and of the Spirit; Jn.3:3-8! Look to 1 Sam.15:1-35; it didn’t end well for Saul! It will not end well for those who are a “shame” to our Lord as well; a shame to people here and now today do not think much of someone being a shame but let us observe how God sees a 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. A shame to us in our terminologies is not the same as His is, now is it? Whose terminologies do you think we had better learn and observe? I don’t know about you but a verse in Joshua comes to mind to me right now: Jos.24:15And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. I hope you do the same, as for me and my house we will serve the LORD JESUS CHRIST my GOD! Who is the first and the last, as we see in yet again scripture, Rv.1:8I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. The same God Isaiah knew; Is.9:6For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Who is Jesus Christ, who is Immanuel, (Is.7:14) Ans. Our God with us, Mt.1:23! God our saviour has appeared to all men; Tit.2:11For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,12Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; 13Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; 14Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.15These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee. We were bought with a price that no one can repay, the precious blood of our great God, Ac.20:28Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost (who is God, Mt.12:31-33 the only one in the whole Bible with a blaspheme clause attached to Him is God!) hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood (Whose blood, the blood of God!). For this reason we must obey His every word or we are not one of His Sons! Jn.8:47 says only those who are His sons hear His words, they are His sons who keep them and do then as seen in scripture yet again: Mt.4:4 and Lk.4:4; because Jesus is the bread of life but man does not live by bread alone, but by every word out of the mouth of God, which has always been Jesus own mouth; Jn.6:63It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. We are saved when we receive Jesus’ repentance for us as seen in Ac.11:15And as I began to speak, the Holy Ghost fell on them, as on us at the beginning.16Then remembered I the word of the Lord, how that he said, John indeed baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost.17Forasmuch then as God gave them the like gift as he did unto us, who believed on the Lord Jesus Christ; what was I, that I could withstand God?18When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life. The evidences of His Spirit being one with ours, the baptism that all the Apostles and disciples received in the upper room all 120 of them spoke with other tongues as the Spirit gave them the utterance, just like Cornelius’ family and friends who had gathered to hear Peter’s preaching! Jms.1:16Do not err, my beloved brethren.17Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. 1 Cor.14:37If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.38But if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant.39Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues.40Let all things be done decently and in order. So what happened to our so called Churches who say that these things are not for us today? The things the Apostles gave to us were bound by Jesus’ authority for only they had the authority to bind in heaven and on earth and to loosen in heaven and on earth and that power is none transferable; only the one who has all authority can give that permission to another, especially a man! There is but by One Spirit and One LORD that all the gifts of the Spirit are given out to become Apostles, Prophets, Evangelist, Preachers and Teachers as well as all the other gifts working properly to be a true church of God in Jesus Christ; reconciling the world unto Himself by us who are His servants doing our jobs for Him! This is how you will know a true church of God in Christ Jesus! When they are living out His words in their everyday lives as His faithful servants will be seen doing as Paul said in Ac.26:19Whereupon, O king Agrippa, I was not disobedient unto the heavenly vision:20But shewed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance. This once saved always saved and we are saved by grace and faith alone is leading a lot of people straight to Hell! We have a hope of salvation, if we don’t put on our wedding garment which is His holiness and righteousness that shines like godliness which is without spot or wrinkle we will not be found blameless now will we? What happened to the man who came in and did not put on his wedding garment? He was bound hand and foot and cast out into outer darkness where there will be gnashing of teeth; just like you! God changes not; Mal.3:6; Mt.5:17-20; Mt.24:35; Heb.13:8! We abide in Him and produce fruits or we are cut off and put in the burn pile as seen in scripture, Jn.15:1I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.2Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit (He tests you and proves you to increase your faith in Him so you can produce more fruits and win more souls to His kingdom, are you a soul winner?! If not you have not picked up your cross yet then have you! If you do not deny yourself and pick up your cross and you still follow Him; you are still not worthy of Him according to scripture no my word; but His own words! Read Mt.10 & chapter 16 and even Mk.8:34-38!) 3Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. (You are only clean unless you keep His words of life to your own soul, heart, mind, spirit, and body; which are your strengths!) 4Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.5I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.6If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.7If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. 8Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.9As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.10If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.11These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.12This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.13Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. (This is the true definition of love!) 14Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Mt.4:4But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. With man this is impossible, but with God in you all things become possible, because greater is He that is in you (If you have baptized in His glorious name and infilled with His Holy Spirit in you!), than he that is in the world, 1 Jn.4:4! For this reason there will be few that can get their feet off the ground come the catching away! They know not who the Lord truly is because of the vanities’ of doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church who started some manmade “trinity study” trying to figure out the relativity of the relationships between titles of our One God, when did a title or titles ever become another person or make you more persons then you already are? There is only one God, who is the first and the last and everything in between, who is the mediator between God and you as seen in Gal.3:20 but God is One! Is.49:26And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I the LORD am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob. There is but one who fits this bill and that is Christ Jesus! Zech.14:9And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one. You cannot divide God up into persons, that is nothing but man’s Philosophies of carried over mythologies of the Pagans and heathens! This fool’s errand was started around 225AD and was not ratified for another 225 -250 years before they could come up with terminology which most of all the churches could agree with! Here is the catch though, if you didn’t sign it you would be excommunicated out of the Catholic (Universal) Church! This is where many orthodox churches on the east and the west split up in a schism! The ones who were trying to stay to the doctrines held onto by the apostles were excommunicated out who were labeled as heretics, such as those who held onto prophecy, speaking in tongues, and living in a spiritual relationship with our Lord as given to us by the Apostles already stated in this article! Some of these people which were written about in the most unloving way by the so called church of God, which even hunted these people down and killed them just like any proper heathen would do; they had not learned the Lord’s ways at all! They went about killing as many of the Montanist’s they could; Who were some of these as well, Novatianists, Donatists, the spiritualists of Franciscans, Anabaptists, Camisard enthusiasmists, Puritanists, Quakers, Quietisms, Pietists, Second Adventist, Irvingist, from which the Mennonites come from which were prosecuted by Catholic, Protestant, and Lutheran alike! Those who hold onto the doctrine of the trinity because of tradition and rituals and for no other reasons; from Tertullian, which they got their trinity started from to begin with; from Tertullian a Montanist who they originally said were heretics: All I need is one scripture that repudiates this claim of the trinity and it should be thrown out for lack of an axiom on which to build or structure a doctrine of God’s word, which is built on truth and not a lie! Jn.4:24 for example; which reads God is a Spirit and being God is the only one pure and holy which is blameless as in perfect and without sin as stated as Jesus was in 2 Cor.5:21; we see that Jesus is the Father and when we have seen Jesus we have in fact seen the one who sent Him, Jn.12:45 because the Spirit became flesh and the Spirit and Jesus are one, Jn.10:30! And if you have not the Spirit of God which is the Spirit of Jesus you are none of His yet still, Ro.8:9 because the mystery of godliness has been solved in Jesus Christ; 1 Tm.3:16And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh (End of Subject! Jesus was God! Mt.1:23 just as scripture says, not man!), justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory: Which repudiates this Trinity Philosophy of men who were in darkness and are still! When something is omnipresent it is undividable, and when something has all knowledge as in omniscient it cannot be divided either and be said to not know something, that only another part of it will know, you just divided it and made something else which is of the same substance but yet is not of it either, which makes it consubstantial; well I can see why they used the word con and stuck it onto substance! Is not a con a deception? Can we not see through their weak deceptions of philosophies of those who walk in error? Love is becoming wrapped in flesh, to become a servant, when you are God of the Universe so that you alone can come and take away a curse you gave out for sin; so that your creation would not have to perish for their own inability to keep your words you gave to them, because of their parent’s sin nature which has been handed down to them! This is who Jesus is, my LORD and my GOD! Jn.20:28; Ac.20:28; Mt.4:4; Lk.4:4; coincidences I think not! Jn.6:63 the flesh profiteth nothing for it fadeth away but the words our God has spoken to us AND are by which we all will be judged against, From Gen.1:1 to Rv.22:21! If we are to speak as an oracle of God as Peter said then we had better know what He has told us to do and to say; hadn’t we? 1 Pt.4:11If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion forever and ever. Amen. And finally to finish; we had better know this as well, from the same chapter; 17For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? 18And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? 19Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator. You see we had better have been doing well in all that our Lord has told us to do or we will find ourselves as the unwise servants who were caught unawares and will be beaten with many stripes for not doing what His master had told him to be doing, and will be forever tormented, where the fire is never quenched and the worm dieth not and you become the fuel for the fire: Exe.21:31-32; Eze.22:30-31!I will leave you with what our Lord said to do in these last days; Rev.2:5Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent. Hag.1:5Now therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts: Consider your ways! He is coming for a bride who has made herself ready for her groom who is perfect: Eph.5:26That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, 27That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. Only those who overcome this world that lieth in wickedness (1 Jn.5:19 see verse 20 and find out who Jesus is again! Only those who know who Jesus is…) will be with Him at His table at the feast of the wedding banquet, as seen in Rev.2: and chapter 3! The overcomers who have run their race well as the Apostle Paul told Timothy! We can come in first place but if we have not kept the rules of the race we will be disqualified and sent to Hell with all the rest of them who say Lord, Lord, have I not done great things for you and the kingdom? The answer you will find in Mt.7: below the straight path and the broad way that leads to destruction and many will go in there at! Only those who are found in His will and doing what He said to do will be in His will which is His word to us to do! 2 Tm.3:16All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. Just keeps coming back to being perfect unto all good works! Living in the will of our great God; according to His words; for it is His words that cleanse us (Jn.15:3)!
