Way revealed to Abraham, Moses & Jesus’ apostles, chapter 15

September 18th, 2020

To: In Home churches of God, God’s 6th month Elul 29, 5,780. 9/18/2020

     Today at sunset begins the Christian Sabbath and fourth annual Sabbath, ‘Trumpets’ – ‘Rosh Hashana’ on the Jewish calendar its year 5,781. God’s gifted Holy Spirit of truth is the Christian’s gifted teacher, thus taught by God; that spirit convicts, leads, and inspires one’s turning - repentance. That result is a gifted down payment on eternal life. The annual Sabbath ‘Trumpets’ is about this victory through Jesus, the resurrection; blowing trumpets is a call to battle, victory and worship.

   (1Thess 4:13-18; Now we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers and sisters, about those who are asleep, so that you will not grieve like the rest who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, so also we believe that God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep as Christians. For we tell you this by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will surely not go ahead of those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord Himself will come down from heaven with a shout of command, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be suddenly caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will always be with the Lord. Therefore encourage one another with these words.)

    Paul’s letter to the Corinthian church at chapter 15, explains; regardless of how long dead tombs will open and the dead in Christ will rise first. First resurrection, is when people are resurrected to spiritual life, these aren’t subject to a second death. Jesus’ good news is also about, ‘the age old mystery now revealed’ which is, God’s spirit living in people, making them at one with God the Father and God the Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. The called are gifted to believe IN Jesus, His deeds, coming and to emulate His life. It’s gifted eternal life through Jesus’ imputed faith.

     Heavenly Father: please be mindful of each called believer You’ve led to follow Jesus. Strengthen each with courage, persevering minds to study in groups when possible, live quiet obedient lives and separate from the world. We ask in the nature of Jesus that time be shortened and Your Way soon be established. Amen.

     If we tell an unbelieving citizen of the world that Satan has made himself their god; most would be offended, except those who purposely worship him. Consider from where, worldly traditions, demonic worship, practices originate and who’s the author.

    Satan’s characteristics are described in the Holy Scriptures and Jesus said, He witnessed his falling like lightning from the heavens. See Luke 10:18. In Jesus’ revelations to His apostle John, He revealed and had John write of a previous conflict.

    (Rev 12:7-9; Then war broke out in heaven; Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, the dragon and his angels fought back; but the dragon was not strong enough to prevail, so there was no longer any place left in heaven for him and his angels. So that huge dragon – the ancient serpent, the one called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world – was thrown down to the earth, and his angels along with him.)

    Jesus declared Satan to be the god of this world, one deceiving the whole world, He’s including divided religions and every individual that doesn’t look to Him for knowledge of right, wrong, good and evil. That’d be people living the way that seems right and evolved with the world. Sodom and Gomorra evolved from demonic deceptions, Abraham’s nephew ‘Lot’ moved there because of its appeal. It was a city moving back to the time before the flood. Then, like in this latter age Satan and his followers were manifesting themselves as angels of light, deceiving the world with many evolving religions. Jesus inspired Paul to reveal.

    (2Cor 11:12-15; And what I am doing I will continue to do, so that I may eliminate any opportunity for those who want a chance to be regarded as our equals in the things they boast about. For such people are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ; and no wonder for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. Therefore it is not surprising his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness, whose end will correspond to their actions.) Satan and those he influences used every opportunity to camouflage God’s truth.

     Our Lord’s brother ‘Jude’ wrote of the apostate taking place; he intended to write about the common salvation of Jesus’ followers, but was spiritually compelled to write otherwise; seeing Satan’s influence on practices that were causing pagan acceptance over God’s Way. It may have been early for Jude to have witnessed a pagan calendar that named days of week after pagan gods and months after demonically led rulers of the people, but that too was coming to distort truth.

    The Roman calendar names the first day Sunday, literally meaning, day of the sun. Second day Monday, literally meaning, day of the moon. Third day Tuesday, for the war god Tiu or Tyr. Fourth day Wednesday, Wooden or Odin- chief god. Fifth day Thursday, Thor, the god of thunder. Sixth day Friday, Frigg, the pagan god Orin’s wife, and what an abomination to name God’s seventh day, Sabbath, after the Roman agriculture god, Saturn, whose festival in Rome led to saturnalia - wild partying.

    No intelligent person can deny the origin of the Roman calendar, nor the reason professing Christians named days after pagan gods. It was a demonically led idea to bring pagans into an apostate Christianity. Jesus’ apostles; all but John was apparently killed for teaching Jesus’ Way against the tide of such apostate, which was and will always be anti-Christian until Jesus’ return. Considers Paul’s encounter while teaching against pagan idol worship.

    (Acts 19:23-27; At that time a great disturbance took place concerning The Way. For a man named Demetrius, a silversmith who made silver shrines of Artemis, brought a great deal of business to the craftsmen. He gathered these together, along with the workmen in similar trades, and said, “Men, you know that our prosperity comes from this business. And you see and hear that this Paul has persuaded and turned away a large crowd, not only in Ephesus but in practically all of the province of Asia, by saying that gods made by hands are not gods at all. There is danger not only that this business of ours will come into disrepute, but also that the temple of the great goddess Artemis will be regarded as nothing, and she whom all the province of Asia and the world worship will suffer the loss of her greatness.)

    (Acts 19:28-41; When they heard this they became enraged and began to shout, Great is Artemis of the Ephesians! The city was filled with the uproar, and the crowd rushed to the theater together, dragging with them Gaius and Aristarchus, the Macedonians who were Paul’s traveling companions. But when Paul wanted to enter the public assembly, the disciples would not let him. Even some of the provincial authorities who were his friends sent a message to him, urging him not to venture into the theater. So then some were shouting one thing, some another, for the assembly was in confusion, and most of them did not know why they had met together. Some of the crowd concluded it was about Alexander because the Jews had pushed him to the front. Alexander, gesturing with his hand, was wanting to make a defense before the public assembly. But when they recognized that he was a Jew, they all shouted in unison, Great is Artemis of the Ephesians for about two hours. After the city secretary quieted the crowd, he said, Men of Ephesus, what person is there who does not know that the city of the Ephesians is the keeper of the temple of the great Artemis and of her image that fell from heaven?

    So because these facts are indisputable, you must keep quiet and not do anything reckless. For you have brought these men here who are neither temple robbers nor blasphemers of our goddess. If then Demetrius and the craftsmen who are with him have a complaint against someone, the courts are open and there are proconsuls; let them bring charges against one another there. But if you want anything in addition, it will have to be settled in a legal assembly. For we are in danger of being charged with rioting today, since there is no cause we can give to explain this disorderly gathering.” After he had said this, he dismissed the assembly.)

    After Paul wrote the Thessalonians about Jesus’ return and the resurrection in chapter 5, he acknowledges that we don’t know the time. It’s apparent in most of the apostles’ letters that they each thought it possible that Jesus would return in their life time. However in this latter age knowledge has increased as Jesus promised. The six day work week and the seventh being for rest and worship is strong indication that Jesus’ and God the Father planned Jesus’ return after six thousand years. It’s no mistake on God’s part that He uses the number seven to indicate completion and that His plans are unalterable. Consider proofs; (Matt 1:17; So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations, and from David to the deportation to Babylon, fourteen generations, and from the deportation to Babylon to Christ, fourteen generations.) God preplanned that four of seven annual Sabbaths are in His seventh month with each foreshadowing His plans. God knew and planned the circumstance we face in this latter age, saying through Matthew; (Matt 24:10-14; Then many will be led into sin, and they will betray one another and hate one another. And many false prophets will appear and deceive many, and because lawlessness will increase so much, the love of many will grow cold. But the person who endures to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached throughout the whole inhabited earth as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come.) As always prayerfully study the whole.

Way revealed to Abraham, Moses & Jesus’ apostles, chapter 14

September 15th, 2020

To: In Home churches of God, God’s 6th month Elul 24, 5,780. 9/14/2020

      Jesus’ good news through His apostles is about believers looking forward to His coming with His resurrected to eternal life Saints, binding Satan and ruling this earth with His justice. A millennial reign of peace, supernatural interventions, and Israelites being re-established to their borders as promised Abraham. Jacob’s heirs will become examples to the world through Jesus.

   (Micah 4:1-5; In the future the LORD’s Temple Mount will be the most important mountain of all; it will be more prominent than other hills. People will stream to it.  Many nations will come, saying, “Come on! Let’s go up to the LORD’s mountain, to the temple of Jacob’s God, so He can teach us His commands and we can live by His laws.” For Zion will be the source of instruction; the LORD’s teachings will proceed from Jerusalem. He will arbitrate between many peoples and settle disputes between many distant nations. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nations will not use weapons against other nations, and they will no longer train for war. Each will sit under his own grapevine or under his own fig tree without any fear. The LORD who commands armies has decreed it. Though all the nations follow their respective gods, we will follow the LORD our God forever.)

   Some people groups, perhaps whole nations will cling to previous indoctrinations, but Jacob’s family will follow Jesus forever.     “In that day,” says the LORD, “I will gather the lame, and assemble the outcasts whom I injured. Jesus continues to reveal the future through Micah.

   (Mic 4:6-8; I will transform the lame into the nucleus of a new nation, and those far off into a mighty nation. The LORD will reign over them on Mount Zion, from that day forward and forevermore.” (See Psalms 78:70-72) As for you, watchtower for the flock, fortress of Daughter Zion — your former dominion will be restored, the sovereignty that belongs to Daughter Jerusalem.) Before Jesus’ coming the family of Jacob, ’Israelites’ will be yielded to Babylonian and Assyrian confusion.

    (Micah 4:9-13;Jerusalem, why are you now shouting so loudly? Has your king disappeared? Has your wise leader been destroyed? Is this why pain grips you as if you were a woman in labor? Twist and strain, Daughter Zion, as if you were in labor! For you will leave the city and live in the open field. You will go to Babylon, but there you will be rescued. There the LORD will deliver you from the power of your enemies.) Now many fleshly minded Israelites aren’t likely to fall in line, but will need a supernatural rescue. 

    (Micah 4:11-13; Many nations have now assembled against you. They say, “Jerusalem must be desecrated, so we can gloat over Zion!” But they do not know what the LORD is planning; they do not understand His strategy. He has gathered them like stalks of grain to be threshed at the threshing floor.)

     (Mic 4:13; Get up and thresh, Daughter Zion! For I will give you iron horns; I will give you bronze hooves, and you will crush many nations.” You will devote to the LORD the spoils you take from them, and dedicate their wealth to the Sovereign Ruler of the whole earth.) Now Jesus’ prophecy through Micah backs up to before Jesus’ second coming, and when enemies of Jacob’s family desire domination of Jerusalem.

    (Micah 4:14-5:15; But now slash yourself, daughter surrounded by soldiers! We are besieged! With a scepter they strike Israel’s ruler on the side of his face. As for you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, seemingly insignificant among the clans of Judah - from you a king will emerge who will rule over Israel on My behalf, One whose origins are in the distant past. So the LORD will hand the people of Israel over to their enemies until the time when the woman in labor gives birth. Then the rest of the king’s countrymen will return to be reunited with the people of Israel. He will assume His post and shepherd the people by the LORD’s strength, by the sovereign authority of the LORD His God. They will live securely, for at that time He will be honored even in the distant regions of the earth.)

     (Micah 5:5-6; He will give us peace. Should the Assyrians try to invade our land and attempt to set foot in our fortresses, we will send against them seven shepherd-rulers, make that eight commanders. They will rule the land of Assyria with the sword, the land of Nimrod with a drawn sword. Our king will rescue us from the Assyrians should they attempt to invade our land and try to set foot in our territory.) Remember Nimrod thought to dominate the world.

Jacob’s family is scattered in many nations, A Remnant Shall Be Delivered

   (Micah 5:7-15; Those survivors from Jacob will live in the midst of many nations. They will be like the dew the LORD sends, like the rain on the grass, that does not hope for men to come or wait around for humans to arrive. Those survivors from Jacob will live among the nations, in the midst of many peoples. They will be like a lion among the animals of the forest, like a young lion among the flocks of sheep, which attacks when it passes through; it rips its prey and there is no one to stop it. Lift your hand triumphantly against your adversaries; may all your enemies be destroyed! “In that day,” says the LORD, “I will destroy your horses from your midst, and smash your chariots. I will destroy the cities of your land, and tear down all your fortresses. I will remove the sorcery that you practice, and you will no longer have omen readers living among you. I will remove your idols and sacred pillars from your midst; you will no longer worship what your own hands made. I will uproot your images of Asherah from your midst, and destroy your idols. I will angrily seek vengeance on the nations that do not obey Me.”) Fine automobiles, homes and life styles will no longer be worshiped. 

Now Jesus is revealing through Paul how called out followers of Jesus’ should be living in this present age.

    (1Thess 4:1-8; Finally then, brothers and sisters, we ask you and urge you in the Lord Jesus, that as you received instruction from us about how you must live and please God (as you are in fact living) that you do so more and more. For you know what commands we gave you through the Lord Jesus. For this is God’s will: that you become holy, that you keep away from sexual immorality, that each of you know how to possess his own body in holiness and honor, not in lustful passion like the Gentiles who do not know God. In this matter no one should violate the rights of his brother or take advantage of him, because the Lord is the avenger in all these cases, as we also told you earlier and warned you solemnly. For God did not call us to impurity but in holiness. Consequently the one who rejects this is not rejecting human authority but God, who gives His Holy Spirit to you.)

     Follower of Jesus need to have an overview of God’s revealed characteristics. Know how He dealt with Cain, Noah, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. That by promise through His prophets and apostles, Jesus fulfilled the prophetic Messiah promise, sacrificed Himself, shed His life blood, for the remission of this world’s lawlessness and His followers individually. Jesus called twelve apostles, revealed their and all called out people’s duties. The bold Peter asked Jesus about their future.

     (Matt 19:27-30; Then Peter said to Jesus, Look, we have left everything to follow You! What then will there be for us? Jesus said to them, I tell you the truth: In the age when all things are renewed, when the Son of Man sits on His glorious throne, you who have followed Me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And whoever has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or fields for My sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life. But many who are first will be last, and the last first.)

      Many in this latter age will endure persecutions but will inherit eternal life. All Believers IN are looking forward to the age when all things are renewed. The twelve tribes of Israel will be noteworthy in the age to come with righteous judges, ‘the twelve apostles of the Lamb.’

     We don’t know of a biblical scriptural reason for God’s seventh month being called ‘Tishrei’ nor why the Judeans have named it their first month. The next new moon will mark God’s seventh month. Leviticus 23: gives us His summations, study it. From a Google search find the following; ‘Feast of Trumpets, new-years day-according to Jewish faith.’ The name, ‘Rosh Hashanah’ isn’t mentioned, nor is there a reference to its celebration. God’s calendar names the month, ‘Nisan’ His New Year month. Judea’s governing authorities later named God’s seventh their New Year month for 10 tribes. Kaufmann however does not accept this explanation, calling it ‘one of the errors.’   

    God’s seventh month concludes His third annual holy season, with four of seven annual Sabbaths, the Feast of Tabernacles and Last Great Day the seventh annual Sabbath. See Leviticus 23: and Exodus 12: Many professing Christians teach God’s weekly and annual Sabbaths are part of God’s law that’s been fulfilled as in eliminated. Jesus disagrees through His apostle Paul.

     (Rom 3:31; Do we then nullify the law through faith? Absolutely not! Instead we uphold the law.)

     (Rom 6:14-18; For sin will have no mastery over you, because you are not under law but under grace. What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Absolutely not! Do you not know that if you present yourselves as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey, either of sin resulting in death, or obedience resulting in righteousness? But thanks be to God that though you were slaves to sin, you obeyed from the heart that pattern of teaching you were entrusted to, and having been freed from sin, you became enslaved to righteousness.)

    (Rom 7:6-12; But now we have been released from the law, because we have died to what controlled us, so that we may serve in the new life of the Spirit and not under the old written code. What shall we say then? Is the law sin? Absolutely not! Certainly, I would not have known sin except through the law. For, indeed I would not have known what it means to desire something belonging to someone else if the law had not said, “Do not covet.” But sin, seizing the opportunity through the commandment, produced in me all kinds of wrong desires. For apart from the law, sin is dead. And I was once alive apart from the law, but with the coming of the commandment sin became alive and I died. So I found that the very commandment that was intended to bring life brought death! For sin, seizing the opportunity through the commandment, deceived me and through it I died. So then, the law is holy, and the commandment is holy, righteous, and good.)

    (Rom 7:13-25; Did that which is good, then, become death to me? Absolutely not! But sin, so that it would be shown to be sin, produced death in me through what is good, so that through the commandment sin would become utterly sinful. For we know that the law is spiritual — but I am unspiritual, sold into slavery to sin.  For, I don’t understand what I am doing. For I do not do what I want, instead, I do what I hate. But if I do what I don’t want, I agree that the law is good. But now it is no longer me doing it, but sin that lives in me. For I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my flesh. For I want to do the good, but I cannot do it. For I do not do the good I want, but I do the very evil I do not want! Now if I do what I do not want, it is no longer me doing it but sin that lives in me. So, I find the law that when I want to do good, evil is present with me. For I delight in the law of God in my inner being. But I see a different law in my members waging war against the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin that is in my members. Wretched man that I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself serve the law of God with my mind, but with my flesh I serve the law of sin.) Paul is explaining that even though a recipient of God’s Spirit of Truth, ‘in the flesh he’s still working at overcoming its pulls.’ God’s imputed Spirit is the down payment to eternal life.

   (Galatians 3:19-29; Why then was the law given? It was added because of transgressions, until the arrival of the Descendant to whom the promise had been made. It was administered through angels by an intermediary. Now an intermediary is not for one party alone, but God is one. Is the law therefore opposed to the promises of God? Absolutely not! For if a law had been given that was able to give life, then righteousness would certainly have come by the law.  But the scripture imprisoned everything and everyone under sin so that the promise could be given — because of the faithfulness of Jesus Christ — to those who believe. Now before faith came we were held in custody under the law, being kept as prisoners until the coming faith would be revealed. Thus the law had become our guardian until Christ, so that we could be declared righteous by faith. But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian. For in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God through faith. For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female — for all of you are one in Christ Jesus. And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to the promise.)

     Paul isn’t speaking of a conjured up faith in a painter’s image; ‘but Jesus imputed - gifted to the mind faith.’ Jesus’ gifted faith is saving faith.

Way revealed to Abraham, Moses & Jesus’ apostles, chapter 13

September 13th, 2020

To: In Home churches of God, God’s 6th month Elul 23, 5,780. 9/12/2020

     God’s New Covenant church was hijacked about the time our Lord’s brother ‘Jude’ wrote about the apostate of Jesus’ truth taking place. Fleshly void of the Holy Spirit people with agenda’s was starting what would become the Roman Catholic Church which grew into an empire. After Emperor Constantine’ conversion their growth was unparallel, consuming most of Europe, Asia and more. Conversion to their religion was mandatory for many years, even reaching the American Indians.

    Controversy developed over Papal celibacy giving birth to the Eastern Orthodoxy Catholic brand, today they’re primarily in Russia and east. Intellectuals’ with agenda’s was hired to translate the Hebrew scripture to Latin which was used in worship long after the King James English translation. Tyndale’s translation was among the early prominent ones. Protestants revered the King James for the most part. Primarily we now use the Net Bible translation because it appears to be closer to our modern day English.

    The Universal Church’s agenda has always been world dominance, their claiming to represent God’s kingdom on earth has in part, caused war with Muslims, Protestants and others. However Satan is the real cause of demonic division and hatred among people groups over religion and politics, which is today’s norm. People insisting on living according to God’s Biblical described morals are hated because they can’t condone a Sodom-Gomorra culture mentality.

    As did Jesus’ apostles we write in hope of keeping Jesus’ church family uplifted, knowledgeable of His Way and believing in Him as He’s manifested to be by, Himself, holy prophets and apostles. If divided denominational minded people find God’s truth undesirable and don’t grasp it, likely they’re not being called in this pre-millennium age, but it isn’t their end.…    A bright future in on the horizon, in the millennium physical resurrections, prosperity, peace, judgments of previous life deeds and a second death to people refusing God’s way is prophesied. Study, read aloud, Jesus’ Revelations to His apostle John and zero in on chapter 21:7-8. Know this; Jesus’ message and His apostles letters are to people loved and chosen by God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, not divided worldly religions. Note Jesus’ apostle Paul’s phraseology to the church of God.

     (1Thess 1:4-6; We know, brothers and sisters loved by God, that He has chosen you, in that our gospel did not come to you merely in words, but in power, in the Holy Spirit and with deep conviction (surely you recall the character we displayed when we came among you to help you.) And you became imitators of us and of the Lord, when you received the message with joy that comes from the Holy Spirit, despite great affliction.)

    In each age people who joyfully receive God’s inspired word as preserved in its original languages with conviction, have turned from their having lived life pleasing to themselves in the flesh, to Jesus’ truth way granted to recipients of His gifted Holy Spirit. How’s this possible? Jesus answered Nicodemus as follows.

   (John 3:5-8; Jesus answered, “I tell you the solemn truth, unless a person is born of water and spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. What is born of the flesh is flesh, and what is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not be amazed that I said to you, ‘You must all be born from above.’ The wind blows wherever it will, and you hear the sound it makes, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.”   

    Almighty God: thank You for Your awesomeness, holy attributes and oracles as presented in Holy Scripture. Help us believe IN and acquire a like mind with Jesus, as He’s manifest to be in Holy Scriptures. Make called individual in the spiritual image and nature of Jesus is our prayer. AMEN.  

    After seeing the order of God’s universe and this beautiful earth from space; astronaut ‘James Irwin’ believed he experienced a miraculous encounter with Jesus. After returning, he searched for Noah’s ark and went about telling people of his experience and belief in Jesus. Hopefully James Irwin will be in the first resurrection and if not, surely He’ll be praising God when he’s physically resurrected. It isn’t likely, folks with James Irwin’s deeds and attitude will experience a second death. (Review Revelations 21:7-8)

     When called and spiritually led to believe IN Jesus as He manifest Himself to be; His followers learn that He’s holy, the Re-creator, Creator, Sustainer, Savior, our Mediator before God the Father and our coming King of Kings. Believers also know Jesus as, ‘The Lord God’ saying to Adam; “You must not eat from the tree of life, of knowledge of good and evil nor touch it, or else you will die, and know Him as ‘the bread of life.’ (See John 6:35, 6:53 and 8:12) Believers know Jesus has eternal life and is the resurrection.

    (John 11:25-26; Jesus said to her, I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes IN Me will live even if he dies, and the one who lives and believes in Me will never die.)

     People called to believe IN and worshiping Jesus as He’s manifested to be are gifted with eternal life. The Hebrews writer we believe to be Paul, reflected on the Israelites being led to and standing before Mt. Zion during their deliverance from Egypt/sin. Explaining to praying believers, unlike the Israelites of that time, Believers in Jesus are enrolled in Heaven and are before God’s heavenly Mt. Zion.

    (Heb 12:22-24; But you have come to Mount Zion, the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to myriads of angels, to the assembly and congregation of the firstborn, who are enrolled in heaven; to God the judge of all, to the spirits of the righteous who have been made perfect, to Jesus, the Mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks of something better than Abel’s does.) As always study the whole.

     Believers are spiritually led to know the importance of allowing scripture explain scripture. Knowing dependency on any source other than our Creator for spiritual understanding regarding what’s right, wrong, good and evil is idolatry. It’s why the Lord God commanded Adam and Eve not to partake of the fruit on a particular tree, and why Jesus warned that many would say He’s the Lord and deceive many.

     Consider Paul’s knowledge regarding his previous to conversion life. He considered his schooling and intellect before being called by Jesus as labiality. Before Jesus revealed Himself when in route to Damascus Syria, Paul was of the deceived Pharisee denomination. 

     Writing to called believers in Jesus people, Peter offers the following. (1Peter 2:4-10; So as you come to Jesus a living Stone rejected by men but chosen and priceless in God’s sight, you yourselves, as living Stones, are built up as a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood and to offer spiritual sacrifices that are acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For it says in scripture, “Look, I lay in Zion a stone, a chosen and priceless cornerstone, and whoever believes in Him will never be put to shame. (Quote from Isaiah 28:16) So you who believe see His value, but for those who do not believe, the Stone that the builders rejected has become the Cornerstone, and a stumbling-Stone and a Rock to trip over. They stumble because they disobey the word, as they were destined to do. But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people of His own, so that you may proclaim the virtues of the One who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. You once were not a people, but now you are God’s people. You were shown no mercy, but now you have received mercy.” (Peter is also quoting from Psalms 118:22) (See also Matt 21:42; Mark 12:10; Luke 20:17; Acts 4:11).

     Denominations using Jesus’ name falsely assume all parishioners are in a like category with Jesus’ apostle Paul when he said; ‘thus we are full of courage and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord.’ 2Cor 5:8. Paul was a called out gifted Believer IN Jesus, ‘a believer IN’ meaning; he was spirit led with a gifted desire to emulate Jesus in every way. All Jesus’ apostles were single minded in this regard.

     As with many of Satan’s deceptions, he was partially correct telling Eve, “Surely you will not die, for God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will open and you will be like divine beings who know good and evil.” (See Genesis 3) Satan apparently knew of God’s plan to gift called out people with His spirit through Jesus, and making each at one with Himself.’ Satan knew Jesus would reveal this mystery to His apostles and all called out people.

    Called believers IN Jesus are gifted with His Holy Spirit, as in ‘fathered by God the Father,’ thus gifted with a spiritual outlook like Jesus’. Believers IN Jesus are always growing in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior. God the Father works through Jesus’ gifted faith. Only God’s chosen truly believe IN and gifted with eternal life. In Jesus’ likeness, when resurrected.

    Jesus knows each Believer and unbeliever and will resurrect according to plan. A time is set forth for each, and His ordained annual Sabbaths foreshadow them. He knows the spirit essence, the likes of a DNA, of each person, that spirit essence doesn’t make each individual a dual person, as in a second part continuing to live after physical death. Eternal life is only gifted by promise to Believers, those followers, those emulators of Jesus, for God the Father’s purpose.

    Followers of Jesus should be about the business of, ‘proclaiming the virtues of the One that called them out of darkness into His marvelous light. 1 Peter 2:10. Followers of Jesus are members of the household of God, by God’s fathering. Jesus’ apostle Paul explained to the gentiles Christians in God’s Ephesus church.

      (Ephesians 2:18-22; “So that through Him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father. So then you are no longer foreigners and non-citizens, but you are fellow citizens with the Saints and members of God’s household, because you have been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus Himself as the cornerstone. In Him the whole building, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together into a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.)

     Calling themselves Christian doesn’t mean they have access in one Spirit to the Father. God’s church isn’t an organization by people, but a people in whom God father’s making them literal children / His household. God’s spirit is being is being ‘at- one’ with Himself, dwelling in His people. Non-Israelite followers of Jesus converting from their old pagan practices were taught to emulate God’s church in Judea.

     (1Thess 2:14; For you became imitators, brothers and sisters, of God’s churches in Christ Jesus that are in Judea, because you too suffered the same things from your own countrymen as they in fact did from the Jews, who killed both the Lord Jesus, the prophets and persecuted us severely.) Non-Israelites and Israelites, were taught Jesus’ words, “many will come in My name saying I am the Christ and deceive many.” See Matthew 24: Each taught to count the cost as they were being called and led to believe IN Jesus.

 

 

Way revealed to Abraham, Moses & Jesus’ apostles, chapter 12

   In parable form Jesus recommended His followers count the cost. (Luke 14:28; For which of you, wanting to build a tower, doesn’t sit down first and compute the cost to see if he has enough money to complete it?)

     The apostles warned that followers of Jesus would face persecutions as did Jesus. His followers would be a people in the world but not of the world. Today’s professing Christians are very much a part of the worldly societies around us. They evolve with and condoning traditions making themselves at one with the world. (Jesus said; “A disciple is not greater than his teacher, nor a slave greater than his master. It is enough for the disciple to become like his teacher, and the slave like his master. If they have called the head of the house ‘Beelzebul’ how much more will they defame the members of his household!”  Matt 10:24-25)

     When professing Christians practice worldly ways they’re of the world. When one dies, it’s popular to use phrases like, ‘they’re now in a better place’ or ‘they’re looking down on us.’ Such phrase’s comes from Satan’s immortality lie told Eve when he also called God a liar. See Genesis 3:1-19. Hinduism have philosophies, Moslems theirs and professing Christians theirs. These and all worldly religions teach some form of Satan’s lie. Believing that eternal life is only gifted through believing IN Jesus has caused the unbelieving populations to persecute Believers since the world began. Belief that people are born immortal caused the Egyptians and others to sacrifice their children to imaginary gods, thinking they could give no greater gift. Jesus’ freed His followers from satanic lies with His truth, which is ‘immortality is only through His shed blood.’ Jesus’ truth frees people from the fear of death when they know He’s Re-Creator, Creator, Sustainer, Deliverer, Savior, Mediator and coming King of Kings, and that ‘eternal life is only through Him.’ Jesus inspired His apostle Paul to write Titus the following explanation.

     (Titus 2:11-15; For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all people. It trains us to reject godless ways and worldly desires and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, as we wait for the happy fulfillment of our hope in the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ. He gave Himself for us to set us free from every kind of lawlessness and to purify for Himself a people who are truly His, eager to do good. So communicate these things with the sort of exhortation or rebuke that carries full authority. Don’t let anyone look down on you.”)

    Satan has worldly religions teaching, people are born with a spiritual component called ‘soul’ that’s immortal, that a person’s soul lives forever someplace, and go to a good or bad place after this fleshly life. Others say, each has a spiritual component within that keeps coming back in various life forms. These and other satanic lies have many recipients enslaved to a fearful of death bondage.

    People called to believe in Jesus are spiritually led to have, ‘hope in the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ. Who gave Himself to set such called believers free from every kind of lawlessness and purify for Himself a people who are truly His, eager to do good.  Now back to Thessalonians.

      (1Thess 3:1-5; So when we could bear it no longer, we decided to stay on in Athens alone. We sent Timothy, our brother and fellow worker for God in the gospel of Christ, to strengthen you and encourage you about your faith, so that no one would be shaken by these afflictions. For you yourselves know that we are destined for this persecution. For in fact when we were with you, we were telling you in advance that we would suffer affliction, and so it has happened, as you well know. So when I could bear it no longer, I sent to find out about your faith, for fear that the tempter somehow tempted you and our toil had proven useless.) Paul explains that now believers are alive again through their believing in Jesus if they stand firm.

    (1Thess 4:6-13; But now Timothy has come to us from you and given us the good news of your faith and love and that you always think of us with affection and long to see us just as we also long to see you! So in all our distress and affliction, we were reassured about you, brothers and sisters, through your faith. For now, we are alive again, if you stand firm in the Lord. For how can we thank God enough for you, for all the joy we feel because of you before our God? We pray earnestly night and day to see you in person and make up what may be lacking in your faith. Now may God our Father Himself and our Lord Jesus direct our way to you. And may the Lord cause you to increase and abound in love for one another and for all, just as we do for you, so that your hearts are strengthened in holiness to be blameless before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus with all his saints.) Take note that Paul doesn’t include the Holy Spirit of truth with The Father and The Son.

    (1Thess 4:1-5; Finally then, brothers and sisters, we ask you and urge you in the Lord Jesus, that as you received instruction from us about how you must live and please God (as you are in fact living) that you do so more and more. For you know what commands we gave you through the Lord Jesus. For this is God’s will: that you become holy, that you keep away from sexual immorality, that each of you know how to possess his own body in holiness and honor, not in lustful passion like the Gentiles who do not know God.)

    Only God’s chosen by covenant promise people know Him. Christians who know God are gifted with a circumcision of heart mentality; meaning they’re at one with God the Father and God the Son through having been born from above. Review John 3:7-8.

   (1Thess 4:6-8; In this matter no one should violate the rights of his brother or take advantage of him, because the Lord is the avenger in all these cases, as we also told you earlier and warned you solemnly. For God did not call us to impurity but in holiness. Consequently the one who rejects this is not rejecting human authority but God, who gives His Holy Spirit to you.) Only Holy Spirit recipients have the spiritual capacity to be this yielding.

    (1Thess 4:9-12; Now on the topic of brotherly love you have no need for anyone to write you, for you yourselves are taught by God to love one another. And indeed you are practicing it toward all the brothers and sisters in all of Macedonia. But we urge you, brothers and sisters, to do so more and more, to aspire to lead a quiet life, to attend to your own business, and to work with your hands, as we commanded you. In this way you will live a decent life before outsiders and not be in need.)  People thinking themselves immortal from birth can’t have this faith.

The Coming of the Lord

    (1Thess 4:13-16; We do not want you to be uninformed, brothers and sisters, about those who are asleep, so that you will not grieve like the rest who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, so also we believe that God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep as Christians. For we tell you this by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will surely not go ahead of those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord Himself will come down from heaven with a shout of command, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.)

     See Hebrews 12: regarding the spirits of the dead in Christ being perfected now.

    (1Thess 4:17- Now we who are alive, who are left, will be suddenly caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will always be with the Lord. Therefore encourage one another with these words.) This is the rapture we believe in. 

    (1Thess 5:1-11; Now on the topic of times and seasons, brothers and sisters, you have no need for anything to be written to you. For you know quite well that the day of the Lord will come in the same way as a thief in the night. Now when they are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction comes on them, like labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will surely not escape. But you, brothers and sisters, are not in the darkness for the day to overtake you like a thief would.  For you all are sons of the light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of the darkness. So then we must not sleep as the rest, but must stay alert and sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night and those who get drunk are drunk at night. But since we are of the day, we must stay sober by putting on the breastplate of faith and love and as a helmet our hope for salvation. For God did not destine us for wrath but for gaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. He died for us so that whether we are alert or asleep we will come to life together with Him.Therefore encourage one another and build up each other, just as you are in fact doing.)

    People in darkness don’t know God gave the Jews certain obligations.

   (Rom 3:1-2; Therefore what advantage does the Jew have, or what is the value of circumcision? Actually, there are many advantages. First of all, the Jews were entrusted with the oracles of God.) Oracles include His calendar and attributes. God’s calendar lays out 6,000 years before Jesus’ millennial reign.

     (1Thess 5:12- Now we ask you, brothers and sisters, to acknowledge those who labor among you and preside over you in the Lord and admonish you, and to esteem them most highly in love because of their work. Be at peace among yourselves. And we urge you, brothers and sisters, admonish the undisciplined, comfort the discouraged, help the weak, be patient toward all. See that no one pays back evil for evil to anyone, but always pursue what is good for one another and for all. Always rejoice, constantly pray, in everything give thanks. For this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. Do not extinguish the Spirit. Do not treat prophecies with contempt. But examine all things; hold fast to what is good.  Stay away from every form of evil. Now may the God of peace Himself make you completely holy and may your spirit and soul and body be kept entirely blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is trustworthy, and He will in fact do this. Brothers and sisters, pray for us too. Greet all the brothers and sisters with a holy kiss. I call on you solemnly in the Lord to have this letter read to all the brothers and sisters. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.)

     All the apostles wanted their letters read to brothers and sisters in Christ, their letters were never intended for worldly denominations deciding for themselves what’s holy, right, wrong, good and evil. Particularly Sabbaths and what’s an abomination to God.

Way revealed to Abraham, Moses & Jesus’ apostles, chapter 11

September 6th, 2020

To: In Home churches of God, God’s 6th month Elul 17, 5,780. 9/6/2020

     Remember apostle letters aren’t to Baal or other imaginary god worshipers. We also write in hopes of keeping Jesus’ church family uplifted, knowledgeable of His Way and believing in Jesus, as He’s manifested to be by His prophets and apostles. If divided denominational minded people read and don’t understand, they may not be called in this age, but it isn’t their end. Physical resurrections, future judgments and a second death is prophesied. See Rev 21:7-8. Jesus’ apostle Paul is writing to people loved and chosen by God the Father in His Thessalonians letter.

   (1Thess 1:2-3; We thank God always for all of you as we mention you constantly in our prayers, because we recall in the presence of our God and Father your work of faith and labor of love and endurance of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.)

    The apostles’ letters are by the authority of God the Father and God the Son. Likewise Jesus’ sample prayer addressing God the Father gives faith power to the called, as they ask for benefits and thankful for His sending Jesus to perform deeds demonstrating Himself the Son of God. Jesus also taught eternal life is through Himself. Study Matthew 6:5-15.

     (1Thess 1:4-5; We know, brothers and sisters loved by God, that He has chosen you, in that our gospel did not come to you merely in words, but in power and in the Holy Spirit and with deep conviction, (surely you recall the character we displayed when we came among you to help you.)

     Jesus’ apostles knew God predestined, is the master planner, Alpha and Omega. Paul was an emulator of Jesus as all followers of Jesus must strive to be.

     (Thess 1:6-10; And you became imitators of us and of the Lord, when you received the message with joy that comes from the Holy Spirit, despite great affliction. As a result you became an example to all the Believers in Macedonia and in Achaia. For from you the message of the Lord has echoed forth not just in Macedonia and Achaia, but in every place reports of your faith in God have spread, so that we do not need to say anything. For, people everywhere report how you welcomed us and how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God and to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, Jesus our Deliverer from the coming wrath.)

     Jesus’ apostles knew a wrathful age was coming, a time Jesus spoke of in His Matthew 24: prophecy. A time if not shortened, no flesh would be saved alive.

     The Thessalonians and each called believer in Jesus today, must turn from idolatrous practices they may have grown up with, to God’s Way as prescribed by Jesus in word and deed. Gifted faith in Jesus should have believers in the mindset to WAIT for His revelations and deliverance; not join congregations that fit fleshly thinking. Paul wrote, “We know brothers and sisters loved by God, that He has chosen you.” See 1Thess 1:4, above.

     Consider, God loved the believer first and consider where the desire to be obedient to His will comes from. Paul wrote confidently that he believed God had called and gifted this assembly of Believers with His Holy Spirit. Turning from previous practices and their love for one another caused Paul’s confidence.

     We recommend getting your own Judea Calendar form a local Jewish temple or www.hebcal.com We haven’t attempted to discover why ‘Tishrei 1; is claimed as the Jewish New Year. We hold to Lev 23: and other text for it being God’s seventh month with four listed annual Sabbaths. Tishrei is the name Judaism has given God’s true seventh month. Tishrei 1; at sunset begins the Feast of Trumpets. Tishrei 10; at sunset begins Atonement, the fifth of seven annual Sabbaths. The 15th at sunset begins the sixth of seven annual Sabbaths, the Feast of Tabernacles, a seven day celebration confirming our bodies to be temporary and the next day, is seventh of seven annual Sabbaths, ‘the Last Great Day.’ Jesus was celebrating this Greatest Day as John wrote.

    (John 7:37-39; On the last day of the Feast, the Greatest Day, Jesus stood up and shouted out, If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and let the one who believes IN Me drink. Just as the scripture says, ‘From within him will flow rivers of living water.’ (See Isaiah 44:3, 55:1, 58:11, and Zech 14:8.) Now Jesus said this about the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were going to receive, for the Spirit had not yet been given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.)

    (John 7:40-43; When they heard these words, some of the crowd began to say, This really is the Prophet, others said, this is the Christ, still others said, No, for the Christ doesn’t come from Galilee, does He. Don’t the scriptures say that the Christ is a descendant of David and comes from Bethlehem, the village where David lived? So there was a division in the crowd because of Jesus. Some of them wanting to seize Him, but no one laid a hand on Him.)

     Our Heavenly Father gives His energizing Holy Spirit of truth, making a chosen people ‘born from above’ that is, our Father does the calling, preparing and makes His people literal spiritual children.

     (2Corinthians 5:5-10; Now the One who prepared us for this very purpose is God, who gave us the Spirit as a down payment. Therefore we are always full of courage, and we know that as long as we are alive here on earth we are absent from the Lord – for we live by faith, not by sight. Thus we are full of courage and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord. So then whether we are alive or away, we make it our ambition to please Him. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may be paid back according to what he has done while in the body, whether good or evil.)

     The Feast of Tabernacles reminds people that the fleshly body is temporary and that we’re absent from the Lord while living therein. Fleshly bodies can’t enter the kingdom of our spiritual God. We must all be changed and that’s one reason Jesus revealed Revelations 21:6-8 to John.

     (Revelations 21:6-8. He also said to me “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the one who is thirsty I will give water free of charge from the spring of the water of life. The one who conquers will inherit these things, and I will be his God and he will be My son. But to the cowards, unbelievers, detestable persons, murderers, the sexually immoral, and those who practice magic spells, idol worshipers, and all those who lie, their place will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur. That is the second death.)

     No matter how people attempt to discern the Holy Scriptures, they can’t get past Jesus and His apostles teaching about immortality, eternal life, God’s spiritually gifting to a predestined by promise people. (Gal 3:28-29; There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female — for all of you are one in Christ Jesus. And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to the promise.)

     (1Thessalonians 2:1-2; For you yourselves know, brothers and sisters, about our coming to you – it has not proven to be purposeless. But although we suffered earlier and were mistreated in Philippi, as you know, we had the courage in our God to declare to you the gospel of God in spite of much opposition.)

     What are some oppositions encountered? Lies like, you won’t surely die and others. All worldly religion teaches some form of Satan’s immortality at birth lie. Whether, worshipers of the goddess Dianna, Baal or imaginary planetary gods, all succumb to various forms of Satan’s lie. Jesus and His apostles taught, ‘eternal life is only gifted through gifted faith in Jesus’ shed blood for the remission of sin.

     (1Thess 2:3-13; For the appeal we make does not come from error or impurity or with deceit, but just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, so we declare it, not to please people but God, who examines our hearts. For we never appeared with flattering speech, as you know, nor with a pretext for greed – God is our witness – nor to seek glory from people, either from you or from others, although we could have imposed our weight as apostles of Christ; instead we became little children among you. Like a nursing mother caring for her own children, with such affection for you we were happy to share with you not only the gospel of God but also our own lives, because you had become dear to us. For you recall, brothers and sisters, our toil and drudgery: By working night and day so as not to impose a burden on any of you, we preached to you the gospel of God. You are witnesses, and so is God, as to how holy and righteous and blameless our conduct was toward you who believe. As you know, we treated each one of you as a father treats his own children, exhorting and encouraging you and insisting that you live in a way worthy of God who calls you to His own kingdom and His glory. And so we too constantly thank God that when you received God’s message that you heard from us, you accepted it not as a human message, but as it truly is, God’s message, which is at work among you who believe.)

       Jesus’ apostle letters were to the churches of God, Believers IN, called by God. Paul regarded himself and these called people ‘recipients of God’s energizing Holy Spirit’ ‘people born from above’ – ‘a people fathered by God.’ We also write from that belief foundation.

    (1Thess 2:14; For you became imitators, brothers and sisters, of God’s churches in Christ Jesus that are in Judea, because you too suffered the same things from your own countrymen as they in fact did from the Jews, who killed both the Lord Jesus and the prophets and persecuted us severely.)

     God’s Jerusalem congregations was founded on Jesus’ teachings, the prophetic words by the prophets about the Messiah‘s coming. Paul’s trips to Jerusalem were to consult with the likes of James and Peter.

     (1Thess 2:15-16; They are displeasing to God and are opposed to all people, because they hinder us from speaking to the Gentiles so that they may be saved. Thus they constantly fill up their measure of sins, but wrath has come upon them completely.)

    It’s through God’s revealed words, digested mentally and received spiritually that people come to a believing IN Jesus’ faith for salvation. In this latter age, Jacob’s family, the Israelites are still scattered among pagan nations and experiencing God’s prophesied displeasure.

     (1Thess 2:17-20; But when we were separated from you, brothers and sisters, for a short time (in presence, not in affection) we became all the more fervent in our great desire to see you in person. For we wanted to come to you, (I, Paul, in fact tried again and again) but Satan thwarted us. For, who is our hope or joy or crown to boast of before our Lord Jesus at His coming? Is it not of course you? For you are our glory and joy!)

     Satan is still about the business of interfering with good intentions, keeping people’s attention on worldly affairs.

 

 

Way revealed to Abraham, Moses & Jesus’ apostles, chapter 10

September 3rd, 2020

To: In Home churches of God, God’s 6th month Elul 14, 5,780. 9/3/2020

   Only recipients’ of God’s energizing Holy Spirit are members of His church family. Members must be put in ‘begotten’- ‘born from above’- ‘fathered by God the Father’ in order to be literal spiritual children of God. One can no more choose to be a member of God’s family, than could’ve chosen their physical parents. No follower of Jesus ever became a recipient of God’s spirit by their choice. Today Christendom has generic preachers putting forth generic messages, leading people down broad paths. Consider Jesus’ apostle Paul’s revealed understanding at Romans 1:1-7 and that the called are commanded to prove all things.

     (Rom 1:1-7; From Paul, a slave of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God. This gospel He ‘God the Father’ promised beforehand through His prophets in the holy scriptures, concerning His Son who was a descendant of David with reference to the flesh, who was appointed the Son-of-God-in-power according to the Holy Spirit by the resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord. Through Him we have received grace and our apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith among all the Gentiles on behalf of His name. You also are among them, called to belong to Jesus Christ. To all those loved by God in Rome, called to be Saints: Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ!)

     Paul didn’t choose to be set apart, understand Jesus’ deity, nor choose to proclaim a bringing about obedience to the faith. It wasn’t his choice to reprehend the Israelites for thinking law keeping could save. They needed to be taught the spiritual magnifications implicated by the law, spiritual obedience that makes one ‘at one’ with God.

     (Rom 2:17-24; But if you call yourself a Jew and rely on the law and boast of your relationship to God, know His will, approve the superior things because you receive instruction from the law, if you are convinced that you yourself are a guide to the blind, a light to those who are in darkness, an educator of the senseless, a teacher of little children, because you have in the law the essential features of knowledge and of the truth – therefore you who teach someone else, do you not teach yourself? You who preach against stealing, do you steal? You who tell others not to commit adultery, do you commit adultery? You who abhor idols, do you rob temples? You who boast in the law dishonor God by transgressing the law! For, just as it is written, “the name of God is being blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you.) Quote from Isaiah 52:5. Consider the gentile ‘Cornelius’ in this regard.

      (Rom 2:25-2. For, ‘the covenant of’ circumcision’ has its value if you practice the law, but if you break the law, your circumcision has become un-circumcision. Therefore if the uncircumcised man obeys the righteous requirements of the law, will not his un-circumcision be regarded as circumcision? And will not the physically uncircumcised man who keeps the law judge you who, despite the written code and circumcision, transgress the law? For a person is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision something that is outward in the flesh, but someone is a Jew who is one inwardly, and circumcision is of the heart by the Spirit and not by the written code. This person’s praise is not from people but from God.)

     Jesus gave Moses the following understandings as to why they would become servants to unbelieving nations and regarding circumcision.

      (Lev 26:40-45; However, when they confess their iniquity and their ancestors’ iniquity which they committed by trespassing against Me, by which they also walked in hostility against Me (and I myself will walk in hostility against them and bring them into the land of their enemies), and then their uncircumcised hearts become humbled and they make up for their iniquity, I will remember My covenant with Jacob, my covenant with Isaac, my covenant with Abraham, and I will remember the land. The land will be abandoned by them in order that it may make up for its Sabbaths while it is made desolate without them and they will make up for their iniquity because they have rejected My regulations and have abhorred My statutes. In spite of this, however, when they are in the land of their enemies I will not reject them and abhor them to make a complete end of them, to break My covenant with them, for I am the Lord their God. I will remember for them the covenant with their ancestors whom I brought out from the land of Egypt in the sight of the nations to be their God. I am the Lord.)

      Prideful physical obedience to God’s law, never met His requirement for obedience. Allowing the lands their Sabbath rest was part of the oracles of God and will be again. God began warning the Israelites very early, about their plight for disobedience, while promising never forgetting His covenant with their ancestors.

      (Deut 30:1-10; When you have experienced all these things, both the blessings and the curses I have set before you, you will reflect upon them in all the nations where the Lord your God has banished you. Then if you and your descendants turn to the Lord your God and obey Him with your whole mind and being just as I am commanding you today, the Lord your God will reverse your captivity and have pity on you. He will turn and gather you from all the peoples among whom He has scattered you. Even if your exiles are in the most distant land, from there the Lord your God will gather you and bring you back. Then He will bring you to the land your ancestors possessed and you also will possess it; He will do better for you and multiply you more than He did your ancestors. The Lord your God will also cleanse your heart and the hearts of your descendants so that you may love Him with all your mind, being and so that you may live. Then the Lord your God will put all these curses on your enemies, on those who hate you and persecute you. You will return and obey the Lord, keeping all His commandments I am giving you today. The Lord your God will make the labor of your hands abundantly successful and multiply your children, the offspring of your cattle, and the produce of your soil. For the Lord your God will once more rejoice over you to make you prosperous just as He rejoiced over your ancestors, if you obey the Lord your God and keep His commandments and statutes that are written in this scroll of the law. But you must turn to Him with your whole mind and being.)

Israelites are scattered around the world and our Deliverer ‘Jesus’ knows each one.

     (Jeremiah 4:4; Just as ritual circumcision cuts away the foreskin as an external symbol of dedicated covenant commitment, you must genuinely dedicate yourselves to the Lord and get rid of everything that hinders your commitment to Me, people of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem. If you do not, My anger will blaze up like a flaming fire against you that no one will be able to extinguish. That will happen because of the evil you have done.)

     (Jeremiah 9:25-26; The Lord says, “Watch out! The time is soon coming when I will punish all those who are circumcised only in the flesh. That is, I will punish the Egyptians, the Judeans, the Edomites, the Ammonites, the Moabites, and all the desert people who cut their hair short at the temples. I will do so because none of the people of those nations are really circumcised in the Lord’s sight. Moreover, none of the people of Israel are circumcised when it comes to their hearts.)

      God’s new spiritual covenant with His called out Holy Spirit recipients’ are a circumcision of heart people, members of God’s spiritual church family. We can’t worship with those practicing abominable to God customs.

     (Ezek  44:7-9; When you bring foreigners, those uncircumcised in heart and in flesh, into My sanctuary, you desecrate it – even My house – when you offer My food, the fat and the blood. You have broken My covenant by all your abominable practices. You have not kept charge of My holy things, but you have assigned foreigners to keep charge of My sanctuary for you. This is what the sovereign Lord says: No foreigner, who is uncircumcised in heart and flesh among all the foreigners who are among the people of Israel, will enter into My sanctuary.)

     Our Creator God doesn’t change, the reason to study the Holy Scriptures is to learn and adhere to His truths. We need Jesus’ gifted faith prove; His Word is truth and His apostles confirm it. We must take worldly religious doctrines to task, remembering Jesus’ Words, “many will come in My name and deceive many.” Jesus’ apostle John believed and taught that Jesus was with God the Father and came from the Father to live in the flesh.

      (John 1:14-18; Now the Word became flesh and took up residence among us. We saw His glory – the glory of the One and only, full of grace and truth; who, came from the Father. John testified about Him and shouted out, “This One was the One about whom I said; ‘He who comes after me is greater than I am, because He existed before me.’ For we have all received from His fullness one gracious gift after another. For, the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came about through Jesus Christ. No one has ever seen God. The only One, Himself God, who is in closest fellowship with the Father, has made God known.)

        John isn’t speaking about Jesus and John the Baptist’ physical lives: the Baptist’s birth was actually six month prior to Jesus’. The apostle John believed and all God’s called people believe that Jesus is Himself God, and was with His Father before He came in the flesh. Revisit John 1:1-5, Colossians 1:15-20 and Hebrews 1:1-4.

      Worldly religions don’t grasp that Jesus was the Lord God leading Moses, the Lord that took lands from unbelieving people groups and gave them to the Israelites. That Jesus, ‘the Lord’ commanded the Israelites to wipe out whole people groups because of their idolatrous life practices. Worldly religions don’t grasp as did Abraham, when he had the mind to be obedient and sacrifice Isaac, knowing that God resurrects, ‘give life back’ to the dead. They prefer believing, each human is born immortal and that the Lord did a bad thing taking the lives of those idolatrous people. Seemingly thinking, idolatrous people were sent to an ever burning fire. Jesus revealed to His apostle Paul, that Satan is the inspiration of such thinking.

      (2Corinthians 4:1-6; Therefore, since we have this ministry, just as God has shown us mercy, we do not become discouraged. But we have rejected shameful hidden deeds, not behaving with deceptiveness or distorting the Word of God, but by open proclamation of the truth we commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience before God. But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled only to those who are perishing, among whom the god of this age has blinded the minds of those who do not believe so they would not see the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God. For, we do not proclaim ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your slaves for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said “Let light shine out of darkness,” is the One who shined in our hearts to give us the light of the glorious knowledge of God in the face of Christ.) This is the Son of God, Paul shared with the Thessalonians and is sharing with all called out Believers. Here we discover how worldly religions omit truth.

      (1Thess 1:1; From Paul, Silvanus and Timothy, to the Thessalonians church of God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Grace and peace be to you!) Paul’s salutation does not include the Holy Spirit. Why not? Paul didn’t believed in the so called trinity doctrine? Peter wrote likewise.

     (1Peter 1:1-5; From Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to those temporarily residence abroad (in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, the province of Asia, and Bithynia) who are chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father by being set apart by the Spirit for obedience and for sprinkling with Jesus Christ’s blood. May grace and peace be yours in full measure! Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! By His great mercy He gave us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, that is, into an inheritance imperishable, undefiled, and unfading. It is reserved in heaven for you, who by God’s power are protected through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.)

    Peter and Paul believed God’s family was God the Father, God the Son and each person called to be heirs with Abraham. That Christians are chosen according to the foreknowledge of God! That eternal life is an inheritance, imperishable, undefiled and unfading.

Way revealed to Abraham, Moses & Jesus’ apostles, chapter 9

September 2nd, 2020

To: In Home churches of God, God’s 6th month Elul 13, 5,780. 9/2/2020

    The good news, gospel, is equally about Jesus’ second coming and His followers being changed to His likeness, inheriting eternal life. Paul’s messages proclaimed by Jesus’ authority includes both. In the apostolic time Jesus sent His messages with gifted power. That power was prophesied to weaken, to the point that Jesus asked, “will the Son of man find faith on earth when He returns?” See Luke 18:6. The sad fact is that He will find very little truth being proclaimed.

    Remember Jesus’ message and His apostles letters were to His church, His called out followers. People gifted with Godly desire and effort from above. (Phil 2:12-18; So then, my dear friends, just as you have always obeyed, not only in my presence but even more in my absence, continue working out your salvation with awe and reverence,  for the One bringing forth in you both the desire and the effort — for the sake of His good pleasure — is God.

    Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may be blameless and pure, children of God without blemish though you live in a crooked and perverse society, in which you shine as lights in the world, by holding on to the word of life so that on the day of Christ I will have a reason to boast that I did not run in vain nor labor in vain. But even if I am being poured out like a drink offering on the sacrifice and service of your faith, I am glad and rejoice together with all of you. And in the same way you also should be glad and rejoice together with me.)

Paul knew his calling was like the Lord Jesus told Ananias. (Acts 9:15-16; But the Lord said to him, Go because this man is My chosen instrument to carry My Name before Gentiles and kings and the people of Israel. For I will show him how much he must suffer for the sake of My name.) Years later in letter to the Colossian Church of God, Paul shared his and coworker’s conditions.

    (Col 4:7-9; Tychicus, a dear brother, faithful minister, and fellow slave in the Lord, will tell you all the news about me. I sent him to you for this very purpose, that you may know how we are doing and that he may encourage your hearts. I sent him with Onesimus, the faithful and dear brother, who is one of you. They will tell you about everything here.) Onesimus had been Philemon’s slave, a Christian Paul knew quiet well. Onesimus had been a runaway slave when Paul met and began tutoring him in The Way of Jesus. Paul then sent Onesimus back to Philemon, writing the following letter with lessons for all.

    (Philemon 1:8-22; So, although I have quite a lot of confidence in Christ and could command you to do what is proper, I would rather appeal to you on the basis of love – I, an old man and even now a prisoner for the sake of Christ Jesus, am appealing to you concerning my child, whose spiritual father I have become during my imprisonment, that is Onesimus,  who was formerly useless to you, but is now useful to you and me. I have sent him (who is my very heart) back to you. I wanted to keep him so that he could serve me in your place during my imprisonment for the sake of the gospel. However, without your consent I did not want to do anything, so that your good deed would not be out of compulsion, but from your own willingness. For perhaps it was for this reason that he was separated from you for a little while, so that you would have him back eternally, no longer as a slave, but more than a slave, as a dear brother. He is especially so to me, and even more so to you now, both humanly speaking and in the Lord. Therefore if you regard me as a partner, accept him as you would me. Now if he has defrauded you of anything or owes you anything, charge what he owes to me. I, Paul, have written this letter with my own hand: I will repay it. I could also mention that you owe me your very self. Yes, brother, let me have some benefit from you in the Lord. Refresh my heart in Christ. Since I was confident that you would obey, I wrote to you, because I knew that you would do even more than what I am asking you to do. At the same time also, prepare a place for me to stay, for I hope that through your prayers I will be given back to you.)

    Apparently when Paul wrote the Colossians about sending folks from himself to comfort their hearts, Onesimus had been set free and returned to Paul for service. Regardless of status, this Philemon and Onesimus example, teaches how we should treat one another as followers of Jesus. We should consider ourselves lifetime slaves to Jesus, serving in His faith. Note that two of the four gospel writers, Mark and Luke were coworkers with Paul at this point.

    (Col 4:10-18; Aristarchus, my fellow prisoner, sends you greetings, as does Mark, the cousin of Barnabas (about whom you received instructions; if he comes to you, welcome him). And Jesus who is called Justus also sends greetings. In terms of Jewish converts, these are the only fellow workers for the kingdom of God, and they have been a comfort to me. Epaphras, who is one of you and a slave of Christ, greets you. He is always struggling in prayer on your behalf, so that you may stand mature and fully assured in all the will of God. For, I can testify that he has worked hard for you and for those in Laodicea and Hierapolis. Our dear friend Luke the physician and Demas greet you. Give my greetings to the brothers and sisters who are in Laodicea, to Nympha and the church that meets in her house. And after you have read this letter, have it read to the church of Laodicea. In turn, read the letter from Laodicea as well. And tell Archippus, See to it that you complete the ministry you received in the Lord. I, Paul, write this greeting by my own hand. Remember my chains. Grace be with you.)

     Jesus’ apostle Barnabas’ cousin ‘Mark’ wrote his account of Jesus’ gospel and ‘Luke the physician’ wrote his account of Jesus’ gospel, plus ‘Acts of the apostles.’ Unlike Paul, these two people were likely acquainted with Jesus’ fleshly family, if not personally, by revelation. Mark and Luke were not apostles but seemingly had first hand information needed to write their accounts of Jesus’ life. Seemingly also, God’s New Covenant with His chosen people was canonized by Jesus’ apostle John, likely on the island of Patmos with Peter, Paul and James’ letters, if not in person.

     (Rev 1:1-11; The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His servants what must happen very soon. He made it clear by sending His angel to His servant John, who then testified to everything that he saw concerning the word of God and the testimony about Jesus Christ.

    Blessed is the one who reads the words of this prophecy aloud, and blessed are those who hear and obey the things written in it, because the time is near!

    I, John, your brother and the one who shares with you in the persecution, kingdom, and endurance that are in Jesus, was on the island called Patmos because of the word of God and the testimony about Jesus. I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day when I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet,  saying: “Write in a book what you see and send it to the seven churches,  Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, and Laodicea.)

    (Rev 1:12-20; I turned to see whose voice was speaking to me, and when I did so, I saw seven golden lamp stands, and in the midst of the lamp stands was One like a Son of Man. He was dressed in a robe extending down to His feet and He wore a wide golden belt around His chest. His head and hair were as white as wool, even as white as snow, and His eyes were like a fiery flame. His feet were like polished bronze refined in a furnace, and His voice was like the roar of many waters.

    He held seven stars in his right hand, and a sharp double-edged sword extended out of His mouth. His face shone like the sun shining at full strength. When I saw Him I fell down at His feet as though I were dead, but He placed His right hand on me and said: “Do not be afraid! I am the first and the last, and the One who lives! I was dead, but look, now I am alive — forever and ever — and I hold the keys of death and of Hades!

    Therefore write what you saw, what is, and what will be after these things. The mystery of the seven stars that you saw in My right hand and the seven golden lamp stands is this: The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.

    Lamp stands John sees represent the seven churches being addressed and Jesus holds these angels in His right hand.

    These seven Churches have strengths and weaknesses, and seemingly all but Philadelphia have worldly problems. Always study the whole and consider the timing of the Philadelphia Church of God.

    (Revelations 3:7-13;To the angel of the church in Philadelphia write the following: “This is the solemn pronouncement of the Holy One, the True One, who holds the key of David, who opens doors no one can shut, and shuts doors no one can open: ‘I know your deeds. (Look! I have put in front of you an open door that no one can shut.) I know that you have little strength, but you have obeyed My word and have not denied My name.

    Listen! I am going to make those people from the synagogue of Satan — who say they are Jews yet are not, but are lying — Look, I will make them come and bow down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you. Because you have kept My admonition to endure steadfastly, I will also keep you from the hour of testing that is about to come on the whole world to test those who live on the earth. I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have so that no one can take away your crown.

    The one who conquers I will make a pillar in the temple of My God, and He will never depart from it. I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God (the New Jerusalem that comes down out of heaven from My God), and My new name as well. The one who has an ear had better hear what the Spirit says to the churches.)

    Only these seven churches represent Jesus and Philadelphia stands firm against demonic forces. The last day church, ‘Laodicea’ thinks that itself has plenty.

     (Rev 3:14-22; “To the angel of the church in Laodicea write the following: “This is the solemn pronouncement of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the originator of God’s creation: ‘I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either cold or hot! So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I am going to vomit you out of my mouth! Because you say, “I am rich and have acquired great wealth, and need nothing,” but do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind, and naked, take My advice and buy gold from Me refined by fire so you can become rich! Buy from Me white clothing so you can be clothed and your shameful nakedness will not be exposed, and buy eye salve to put on your eyes so you can see! All those I love, I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent!) (Individually we’re called to overcome to the end, clothed and immersed in Jesus’ faith.)

    Listen! I am standing at the door and knocking! If anyone hears My voice and opens the door I will come into his home and share a meal with him, and he with Me. I will grant the one who conquers permission to sit with Me on My throne, just as I too conquered and sat down with My Father on His throne. The one who has an ear had better hear what the Spirit says to the churches.)

Way revealed to Abraham, Moses & Jesus’ apostles, chapter 8

August 26th, 2020

To: In Home churches of God, God’s 6th month Elul 5, 5,780. 8/25/2020

    From last study’s review we learned from Rom 9: that each unbelieving person is considered dead in their sins/transgressions. From our inherited from Adam nature we’re sinners with uncircumcised hearts until God calls and miraculously make us ‘born from above.’ Jesus answered Nicodemus in regarding to ‘being born from above;’ (”I tell you the solemn truth, unless a person is born of water and spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. What is born of the flesh is flesh, and what is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not be amazed that I said to you, ‘You must all be born from above.’ The wind blows wherever it will, and you hear the sound it makes, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.”) John 3:5-8.

    No parable here, Nicodemus and each called out person needs to know how God makes us ‘born from above.’ Remember Jesus breathed on His apostles, giving them to understand the scriptures. It was in a private room, behind locked doors that Jesus said to them again, (John 20:21-23;”Peace be with you. Just as the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” And after He said this, He breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive anyone’s sins, they are forgiven; if you retain anyone’s sins, they are retained.”) Being ‘born from above’ is a God gifted miracle, in that we don’t see or understand how it came to be, except that our outlook, desires and efforts are changed to a oneness with God, the likeness of Jesus’.

    On that first Pentecost after Jesus’ ascension, the third of seven annual Sabbaths, many were spiritually filled, ‘born from above’ God’s gifted spirit was producing the same desire and effort to convert. On that Pentecost Sabbath God allowed the spirit to be seen and heard. (Acts 2:1-4; And when the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like a violent wind blowing came from heaven and filled the entire house where they were sitting. And tongues spreading out like a fire appeared to them and came to rest on each one of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit, and they began to speak in other languages as the Spirit enabled them.) God miraculously caused His spirit to be heard and seen in the likeness of tongues of fire resting on each. Recipients of God’s spirit are miraculously ‘born from above’ and were no longer considered dead in their transgressions, but alive in Christ.

    Heavenly Father: please turn many to Your Way and shorten this demonic influenced age. Make each free in Christ and grant Your gift of turning. Reveal Your Truth to each genuine seeker. In the name and Jesus’ gifted nature we ask. Amen.

    Jesus’ word, His prophets and apostles’ letters were and are to ‘churches of God,’- ‘recipients of God’s spirit.’ Messages intended for His chosen people and never for the various divided schools of theologies’ scrutiny.

    Let’s review a portion of Jesus’ apostle Paul‘s letter from last study, to a people whose sins were remitted, those whose lives were hidden in Christ. (Col 3:4-5; You have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ (who is your life) appears, then you too will be REVEALED in glory with Him. So put to death whatever in your NATURE belongs to the earth: sexual immorality, impurity, shameful passion, evil desire, and greed which is idolatry.) You above means ‘you who’re converted to believe in Jesus’ message.’

    (Remember Paul explained to the Colossians church and all Believers, that each of them lived as unbelievers before being called. But now you Christians have put off the old man, old nature, old outlook, with its former practices, and have been clothed with the new man that is being renewed in you, in knowledge according to the image of the One ‘Jesus’ who created it, the new nature. Col 3:6-11) Believing in people will be revealed in glory with Jesus when He comes!

    When people recognize Paul’s letter to the Colossians is truth, and have a desire to change their outlook to mimic God’s Way, they should recognize their thinking didn’t come from within themselves, but from God. When that’s the case, it’s time to recognize we’re being renewed in knowledge and the likeness of Jesus.”

   These studies are for the purpose of grounding us, helping God’s called people recognize their gifted power in Jesus and put down root that is unshakeable. (Review Col 3:6-11) At this point one’s work of overcoming to the end begins.

    (Col 3:12-17; Therefore, as the Elect of God, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with a heart of mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience, bearing with one another and forgiving one another, if someone happens to have a complaint against anyone else. Just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also forgive others. And to all these virtues add love, which is the perfect bond. Let the peace of Christ be in control in your heart (for you were in fact CALLED as one body to this peace) and be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and exhorting one another with all wisdom, singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, all with grace in your hearts to God. And whatever you do in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Jesus.”)

    As an Elect’s of God people have gifted power to overcome lustful pulls of the flesh, be thankful and trust God to grow us in the image of Jesus. We’re called to clothe, immerse ourselves and develop Jesus’ characteristics as the Elect of God.

    One of Jesus’ parables likened His kingdom to a wedding feast. The first invited had other things to do, so the King went out to the wayside and invited as many as would come. When a person came unprepared the King was not pleased. See Matt 22:13-14. Then the king said to his attendants, ‘Tie him up hand and foot and throw him into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth! For, many are called but few are chosen.

    Many call themselves Christian for the wrong reason when they don’t have a loving desire to obey Jesus. To love Jesus is to obey Him! Calling one’s self a Christian and not yielding to God’s Way, is likened to the person who came to the King’s feast unprepared. Unprepared people don’t know God’s agenda. Only have a self serving agenda to join a church and fit with likeminded folks. Such follow the god of denomination’s imagination. Remember a deceived person don’t know they are. Satan has people in many cults finding their comfort zone in religions. But God says, prove ALL things and hold to what is good. People will be judged for lack of obedience to what they understand.

    When people understand that JESUS is the head of His church, ‘the called out Elect,’ that His church is characterizes as His bride, and His teaching began in Genesis with Moses’ writings they’re probably God called. Jesus characterizes Himself as the Husband who gave His life for His bride, as the Son of God submitting to his Father in all things. The Colossians letter is Jesus teaching through His Apostle Paul; how called people should live. To fashion and practice living Jesus’ Way spiritually while in the flesh, as temples of His Spirit. God’s church pattern commands how families, businesses and employee relationships should be.

    (Col 3:18-4:1; Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives, and do not be embittered against them. Children, obey your parents in everything, for this is pleasing in the Lord. Fathers, do not provoke your children, so they will not become disheartened. Slaves, obey your earthly masters in every respect, not only when they are watching – like those who are strictly people-pleasers – but with a sincere heart, fearing the Lord. Whatever you are doing, work at it with enthusiasm, as to the Lord and not for people, because you know that you will receive your inheritance from the Lord as the reward. Serve the Lord Christ. For the one who does wrong will be repaid for his wrong, and there are no exceptions. Masters, treat your slaves with justice and fairness, because you know that you also have a master in heaven.)

    It’s God’s structure for peace, harmony and His Way, the only true freedom. In so called free societies, unbelieving people have problems with Jesus’ teaching through Paul regarding equality and rights. Few realize, all rights come from God. Writers of the United States constitution recognized this fact. Jesus teaches, true freedom is being obedient to Him. Jesus is Truth and He lived the example.

    Under God’s oracles gifted to Israel and taught in Paul’s day, benevolent servitude was the welfare program and should be today. God designed an equitable program for His people, whereby a slave could work toward freedom. In this latter age governments turn all but the very rich into slaves of the state. Laws are passed to take away God given rights, give unorthodox rights at other’s expense. Such laws weakens character, takes away initiatives and imitative learning skills. In God’s Word are all the riches, knowledge and humility intended for His people. Governments don’t seem to realize that we have a Master in heaven. Ordinary people are treated as subjects and property of the state, paying taxes designed to help the affluent and welfare recipients. In most nations people are practically in bondage to government from cradle to the grave. For Israelites servitude protected the unfortunate, those who fell on bad times and never condoned a life time of servitude except by choice.  

    World’s gods are as many as their imagination. People speak in terms of, ‘my faith’ with the attitude that their personal faith is okay with God. Such thinking is clearly from minds that don’t believe IN God as He’s manifested in Holy Scripture. Believing is to look to Him for direction, beliefs, faith and truth regarding what’s right, wrong, good and evil. When a person says ‘my faith allows me’ they’re demonstrating to themselves that they’re an idolatrous people. Satan is the author of all such thinking and the many demonic deceptions the world does not know. The mystery of Jesus’ gospel to the world is; God’s spirit in people, the mind of Christ imputed, gifted to one’s mind, without which we can’t do the following.

     (Col 4:2-6; Be devoted to prayer, keeping alert in it with thanksgiving. At the same time pray for us too, that God may open a door for the message so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains. Pray that I may make it known as I should. Conduct yourselves with wisdom toward outsiders, making the most of the opportunities. Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you should answer everyone.)  

    No apostle ever said, my faith, but emphasized Jesus’ gifted faith.  Jesus repeatedly said, I speak as the Father has told Me and followers of Jesus must look to Him for the way. Don’t refer selves as Christian if Jesus’ faith isn’t in you.

Way revealed to Abraham, Moses & Jesus’ apostles, chapter 7

August 24th, 2020

To: In Home churches of God, God’s 6th month Elul 4, 5,780. 8/24/2020

    In this age those who God hasn’t called and chosen to covenant with, are counted AS DEAD in their transgressions. That is, they’re un-circumcised of heart, in their fleshly nature, until God intervenes. God leads the called to a spiritual circumcision of heart, a conversion and conviction of mind regarding sin. It’s being born from above, a supernatural spiritually gifted changed outlook, -repentance. Each called Believer IN is made alive in Jesus by His forgiving their transgressions. Through Jesus’ gifting His faith, people respond to His love revealed by and through His blood sacrifice for the remission of sin. We must know God has a loving plan for the world and particularly His chosen. His prophets and David foretold Jesus’ deeds and accomplishment.

   The name Israel, means ‘God fights’ or ‘those God fights for’, but not all Israelites are truly Israel and not all Abraham’s descendants are called by promise. Read the following proofs prayerfully. See Rom 9:5-29.   His View Assemblies

    (Romans 9:5-7; To them belong the patriarchs, and from them, by human descent, came the Christ, who is God over all, blessed forever! Amen. It is not as though the word of God had failed. For not all those who are descended from Israel are truly Israel, nor are all the children Abraham’s true descendants; rather “through Isaac will your descendants be counted.”) See Gen 21:12.

   (Rom 9:8-9; This means it is not the children of the flesh who are the children of God; rather, the children of promise are counted as descendants. For this is what the promise declared: “About a year from now I will return and Sarah will have a son.”) See Gen 18:10-14.  

   (Rom 9:10-13; Not only that, but when Rebekah had conceived children by one man, our ancestor Isaac even before they were born or had done anything good or bad (so that God’s purpose in election would stand, not by works but by His calling) - it was said to her, “The older will serve the younger,” just as it is written: “Jacob I loved, but Esau I hated.”) See Mal 1:2-3.

   (Rom 9:14-17; What shall we say then? Is there injustice with God? Absolutely not! For He says to Moses: “I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.” So then, it does not depend on human desire or exertion, but on God who shows mercy. For the scripture says to Pharaoh: “For this very purpose I have raised you up, that I may demonstrate My power in you, and that My name may be proclaimed in all the earth.”) See Exodus 9:16. God’s kingdom, His church, doesn’t depend on people choosing repentance or deciding for themselves, but on God showing mercy, His choosing.

    (Rom 9:18-24; So then, God has mercy on whom He chooses to have mercy, and He hardens whom He chooses to harden. You will say to me then, “Why does He still find fault? For who has ever resisted His will?” But who indeed are you — a mere human being — to talk back to God? Does what is molded say to the molder, “Why have you made me like this?” Has the potter no right to make from the same lump of clay one vessel for special use and another for ordinary use? But what if God, willing to demonstrate His wrath and to make known His power, has endured with much patience the objects of wrath prepared for destruction? And what if He is willing to make known the wealth of His glory on the objects of mercy that He has prepared beforehand for glory - even us, whom He has called, not only from the Jews but also from the Gentiles?)

    (Gen 9:25-26; As He also says in Hosea: “I will call those who were not My people, and I will call her who was unloved, ‘My beloved.” “And in the very place where it was said to them, ‘You are not My people,there they will be called ’sons of the living God.‘ “) Study Hosea 1&2.

    (Rom 9:27-29; And Isaiah cries out on behalf of Israel, “Though the number of the children of Israel are as the sand of the sea, only the remnant will be saved,  for the Lord will execute His sentence on the earth completely and quickly.” Just as Isaiah predicted, “If the Lord of armies had not left us descendants, we would have become like Sodom, and we would have resembled Gomorrah.”) See Isa 1:9

    As we westerners say, the bottom line is, all the world’s populations would go the demonic way except for God’s calling His select. People can’t choose to be converted to God’s way, He does the choosing in this age, and likely the age to come.

      The Galatians, Ephesians and Roman congregations of God, Paul worked with were invaded by people with personal agendas, imposing their beliefs, making merchandise of others. These unknowingly or not, are tools of Satan. But understand; it’s a natural human inherited characteristic to impose wills. Like people in every age, some of these intruders wanted stricter rules and others wanted to abandon all rule. But Paul is teaching the Colossians and all Believers that God is the judge and that we need to remain true to the things learned through His revealed teaching. It’ll be an ongoing problem until Jesus’ return. People naturally like to judge others who think different. So where does this nature come from? Is it not from the idolatrous disobedient little god mentality we inherited and Satan exploited? The natural mind thinks like Eve and Adam, I can decide for myself what’s right, wrong, good and evil. Speaking to God’s called, on the subject, Paul wrote.

     (Col 2:16-19; Therefore do not let anyone judge you with respect to food or drink, or in the matter of a feast, new moon, or Sabbath days – these are only the SHADOW of the things to come, but the reality is Christ! Let no one who delights in humility and the worship of angels pass judgment on you. That person goes on at great lengths about what he has SUPPOSEDLY seen, but he is puffed up with empty notions by his fleshly mind. He has not HELD FAST to THE HEAD from whom the whole BODY, supported and knit together through its ligaments and sinews, grows with a growth that is from God.)

      There’s also a genuine humility through one’s believing God about what we were before His calling, and what He has done by intervening on our behalf. There’s also a prideful humility among the deceived who naturally don’t know they are. We who’re called shouldn’t allow peoples’ judgment regarding revealed understanding about God’s Sabbaths and calendar. As Paul wrote in verse 16 above, these are shadows of things to come. We shouldn’t worship in Pharisee fashion, but look to Christ Jesus.  Believers are led to hold FAST to Jesus, He’s OVER the whole body, the CHURCH. Pharisee fashion puts people in Paul‘s category before his conversion. The key, remember and observe times as commanded, but not as Pharisee’s did.

     God’s weekly Sabbath foreshadows Jesus’ millennial reign. A time of rest from doing works of the flesh, from the demonic pulls on our inherited from Adam nature. Annual Sabbaths foreshadow events pertaining to prophecies and the unfolding of God’s master plan. Some unbelievers use these Colossian verses, attempting to teach that Jesus is about lawlessness.

    To many Jesus’ fulfillments means doing away with the law. These are fleshly minded. Believers are yielded to the mind of Jesus with a gifted desire to obey His truth. Mindful of God’s individual spiritual guidance with His gifted faith in Jesus.

 Knowing God is our judge, thus remaining faithful to Jesus is His will. Not faith in the eating of certain foods or keeping Sabbaths FOR SALVATION. Paul is asking these Colossians to stay true to Jesus’ doctrine, JESUS is reality. Others claimed to have been guided by angels, seeing visions and such. Such are founded on empty notions of fleshly minds. Remember what Jesus inspired Isaiah to pen? (If they speak not according to this word it is because there is no light in them. Isaiah 8:20) And Paul’s saying, (all these things are written for our learning, in these latter days! For, everything that was written in former times was written for our instruction, so that through endurance and through encouragement of the scriptures we may have hope. Rom 15:4) Faith IN Jesus produces endurance, scripture study with meditation keeps hope alive,- encourages. To the called out believers IN, Paul continues to coach.

    (Col 2:20-23; If you have died with Christ to the elemental spirits of the world, why do you submit to them as though you lived in the world? “Do not handle! Do not taste! Do not touch!” These are all destined to perish with use, founded as they are on human commands and teachings. Even though they have the appearance of wisdom with their self-imposed worship and false humility achieved by an unsparing treatment of the body -a wisdom with no true value –they in reality result in fleshly indulgence.)

     How about worshiping of and keeping times God has not set aside? God teaches us to prove all things.  We should ask, what are the origins of things the world holds to and likes to follow? Remember Jesus said His followers are in the world but not of the world. The elemental spirits and people led by them are of the world, they want to be looked up to, they want power, by putting on a facade of fleshly humility they deceive through vain philosophy. All do’s and don’ts people are prone to believe in for their saving, have been exposed by Jesus. Only through believing IN Jesus, believing IN His Way, are people gifted with eternal life, saved.

    (The Apostle John penned Jesus’ words, “The one who rejects Me and does not accept My words has a judge; the Word I have spoken will judge him at the last day. For I have not spoken from My own authority, but the Father Himself who sent Me has commanded Me what I should say and what I should speak. And I know that His commandment is ETERNAL LIFE. Thus the things I say, I say just as the Father has told Me.” John 12:48-50) Now Paul gives the definition of idolatry.

     (Col 3:1-5; Therefore, if you have been raised with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Keep thinking about things above, NOT things on the earth, for you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ (who is your life) appears, then you too will be REVEALED in glory with Him. So put to death whatever in your NATURE belongs to the earth; sexual immorality, impurity, shameful passion, evil desire, and greed which is idolatry.)

     These things are in our inherited nature, from Adam. To be right with God, He miraculously changes our nature, fathers us and makes us in reality, His own. To have an outlook like Jesus‘, we must be born again. We must not allow our minds to dwell on earthly, vain and self serving things, but on Jesus, His deity, His promises and thus grow in the likeness of Him. JESUS is the Christian’s LIFE. Through Jesus’ gifted faith we have power to overcome to the end. Mindful that the old inherited from Adam nature, belongs to the earth

    (Col 3:6-11; Because of these things the wrath of God is coming on the sons of disobedience. You also lived your lives in this way at one time, when you used to live among them. But now, put off all such things as anger, rage, malice, slander, abusive language from your mouth. Do not lie to one another since you have put off the old man with its practices and have been clothed with the new man that is being renewed in knowledge according to the image of the One “Jesus” who created it. Here there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave or free, but Christ is all and in all.)

    All are born in sin, children of disobedience until God calls and reveals Himself through Jesus.

Way revealed to Abraham, Moses & Jesus’ apostles, chapter 6

    The smarter, more intellectual a person thinks them self to be, the more likely they are to choose what’s right, wrong, good and evil. It’s that nature in people the serpent used to attracted Eve and cause her to choose disobedience, and why God inspired Paul to write, (1Cor 1:25-31; For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength. Think about the circumstances of your call, brothers and sisters. Not many were wise by human standards, not many were powerful, not many were born to a privileged position. But God chose what the world thinks foolish to shame the wise, and God chose what the world thinks weak to shame the strong.) Does not those choosing their religion have an opposite view?

    (God chose what is low and despised in the world, what is regarded as nothing, to set aside what is regarded as something, so that no one can boast in His presence. He is the reason you have a relationship with Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification and redemption, so that, as it is written, “Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.”) US, means followers of Jesus.  When we have a relationship with Jesus, God the Father chose us and He’s the reason. Jesus is righteousness, sanctification, ‘Our being set aside’ and a redeeming of His followers that God chose for Himself.

    Peter was inspired to say, and Luke inspired to record his quoting Moses and the prophets. (Acts 3:21-26; This One, heaven must receive until the time all things are restored, which God declared from times long ago through His holy prophets. Moses said, ‘The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your brothers. You must obey Him in everything He tells you. Every person who does not obey that prophet will be destroyed and thus removed from the people.’ All the prophets, from Samuel, and those who followed, have spoken about and announced these days. You are the sons of the prophets and of the covenant that God made with your ancestors, saying to Abraham, ‘And in your descendants all the nations of the earth will be blessed.’)

    YOU, means you Israelites. God the Father raised up His Son and sent Him FIRST to you, Israelites, to bless you by turning each one of you from your iniquities.

     From other scripture we learn, God first sent His Son and Jesus first sent His apostles to the Israelites, later to non-Israelites. As Jesus predicted and Matthew recorded, (Matt 24: this latter age is likened to times before the flood.)

    To keep indebted government’s economies and religious organizations going Satan inspires busy celebrations times. Insignificant to God times, but important to this world’s system of things for keeping people in darkness about Jesus’ coming kingdom.

    Jesus said, (Matt 24:36-39; But as for that day and hour no one knows it – not even the angels in heaven – except the Father alone. For, just like the days of Noah were, so the coming of the Son of Man will be. For in those days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day Noah entered the ark. And they knew nothing until the flood came and took them all away. It will be the same at the coming of the Son of Man.)

    The dead in Christ will be resurrected to Jesus’ likeness when He returns. People alive at the time, is who Jesus is referring to. When folks not in Christ, breath their last, it’s their taking away, but not necessarily their end, physical resurrections and judgments are prophesied. People who never convert to a believing in Jesus outlook will die a second and final death. Review Revelations 21:7-8.

    Think of the useless efforts people put into celebrating times and things appealing to the flesh, compared to times God set aside for their good. Times, pointing to, foreshadowing, the way of salvation, Jesus’ return, judgment, Satan bound, and New Jerusalem coming down. God’s set aside Sabbaths look to all these. One day people will understand the insignificance of their chosen life practices, and many will be led to repentance for having gone the way that seemed right to their fleshly nature.

    The following is not intended as an exact quote. A reporter of sorts, named, Jane Clayton, ask Billy Graham’s daughter, Ann; ‘how could God allow these bad things to happen? Her response was that she believed God was saddened as we are about such. Being the gentleman God is, I believe He has calmly backed away. How can we expect God to bless us when we constantly ask Him to leave us alone?’ Obviously she and many aren’t privileged to have Abraham, Jacob, Moses and Isaiah’s God revealed.

    (Isaiah 40:25-29; To whom can you compare Me? Whom do I resemble?” says the Holy One. Look up at the sky! Who created all these heavenly lights? He is the One who leads out their ranks; He calls them all by name. Because of His absolute power and awesome strength, not one of them is missing. Why do you say, Jacob, Why do you say, Israel, “The LORD is not aware of what is happening to me, My God is not concerned with my vindication”? Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is an Eternal God, the creator of the whole earth. He does not get tired or weary; there is no limit to His wisdom. He gives strength to those who are tired; to the ones who lack power, He gives renewed energy.) Isaiah continues telling of God’s choosing to give perpetual love to Jacob’s family.

    (Isaiah 46:3-12; Listen to me, O family of Jacob, all you who are left from the family of Israel, you who have been carried from birth, you who have been supported from the time you left the womb. Even when you are old, I will take care of you, even when you have gray hair, I will carry you. I made you and I will support you; I will carry you and rescue you. To whom can you compare and liken Me? Tell Me whom you think I resemble, so we can be compared! Those who empty out gold from a purse and weigh out silver on the scale hire a metal smith, who makes it into a god. They then, bow down and worship it. They put it on their shoulder and carry it; they put it in its place and it just stands there; it does not move from its place. Even when someone cries out to it, it does not reply; it does not deliver him from his distress. Remember this, so you can be brave! Think about it, you rebels! Remember what I accomplished in antiquity! Truly I am God, I have no peer; I am God, and there is none like Me, who announces the end from the beginning and reveals beforehand what has not yet occurred, who says, ‘My plan will be realized, I will accomplish what I desire,’ who summons an eagle from the east, from a distant land, one who carries out My plan. Yes, I have decreed, yes, I will bring it to pass; I have formulated a plan, yes, I will carry it out. Listen to Me, you stubborn people, you who distance yourself from doing what is right.)

    The whole world has become as Babylon, meaning confusion, we’re to spiritually go out from such a system. (Isaiah 48:12-16;Listen to me, O Jacob, Israel, whom I summoned! I am the One; I am present at the very beginning and at the very end. Yes, My hand founded the earth; My right hand spread out the sky. I summon them; they stand together. All of you gather together and listen! Who among them announced these things? The LORD’s ally will carry out His desire against Babylon; He will exert His power against the Babylonians. I, I have spoken — yes, I have summoned him; I lead him and he will succeed. Approach Me! Listen to this! From the very first I have not spoken in secret; when it happens, I am there.” So now, the sovereign LORD has sent me, accompanied by His spirit.)

    (Isa 48:17-19; This is what the LORD, your Protector, says, the Holy One of Israel: “I am the LORD your God, who teaches you how to succeed, who leads you in the way you should go. If only you had obeyed My commandments, prosperity would have flowed to you like a river, deliverance would have come to you like the waves of the sea. Your descendants would have been as numerous as sand, and your children like its granules. Their name would not have been cut off and eliminated from My presence.)

    (Isa 48:20-22; Leave Babylon! Flee from the Babylonians! Announce it with a shout of joy! Make this known! Proclaim it throughout the earth! Say, ‘The LORD protects His servant Jacob. They do not thirst as He leads them through dry regions; He makes water flow out of a rock for them; He splits open a rock and water flows out.’ There will be no prosperity for the wicked,” says the LORD.)

    Throughout the ages, each society has their evil. In our age, to my memory, Satan’s demonic deceptions has caused chaos, school shooting and riots in our streets. The causes are Satan instituted-inspired. Madeline Murray O’Hare didn’t want prayer in schools and our societies said, OK. Someone then said, don’t read the Ten Commandments in school and our societies said, OK. Dr. Benjamin Spock said, stop spanking children because it will alter their self esteem and our societies said, OK. Now people wonder why whole societies don’t know right from wrong. Funny, how we trash God’s Way and wonder why the world is going to proverbial hell. Lewd, vulgar, obscene jokes and news articles go forward in cyber space, while God’s Way is shunned. People are concerned about what others’ think, but not concerned about what God thinks. No nation or people can survive long without God’s intervening.

    Whether Ann Graham and the Pope’s words regarding God are recorded accurately or not; such thinking depicts the religious world’s notion of Him, and sheds light on Satan’s influence. A majority seem to think of God as a saddened old gentleman. God’s example throughout history is; He does turn His back and allows disobedient people go the way that seems right, until His appointed intervening time. However that’s only a tip of this world’s problem. Satan is the real problem, camouflaging Jesus’ teaching regarding people’s need of a nature change. God’s planned intervention is on the horizon.

    Growing in knowledge of God’s Way and overcoming our fleshly inherited nature is the desire God gives His chosen. When non-Israelites were gifted with these desires, ‘Israelites’ - tribe of Judea particular, gave them problems over things like circumcision. Israelites motives were from the foundation of, believing IN the law, to the degree of worship. Not understanding spiritual circumcision of heart, the law’s spiritual significance and spiritual magnifications. In part, because of their inherited nature, core beliefs regarding the law.

     From our fleshly nature, we’re motivated with beliefs attained through parents, teachers, education, society, and evolving popular traditions that’s supported by the media etc. These gradually shape most people’s thinking, while others are molded to the hardcore strictness of rule keeping, such as the caliphates. Consider Paul’s motivation after Jesus’ calling. He explained to the converted Colossians.

    (Col 2:12-15; Having been buried with Jesus in baptism, you also have been raised with him through your faith in the power of God who raised Jesus from the dead. And even though you were DEAD in your transgressions and in the un-circumcision of your flesh, Jesus nevertheless made you alive with Him, having forgiven all your transgressions. He has destroyed what was against us, a certificate of indebtedness expressed in decrees opposed to us. He has taken it away by nailing it to the cross. Disarming the rulers and authorities, He has made a public disgrace of them, triumphing over them by the cross.)

   When a person is called and gifted with repentance, God makes that one alive in Himself. The Colossians and we who believed in Jesus, mentally and spiritually buried the old self and are raised to a newness of life in Him.
