This world’s professing Christian’s life styles practices and condoning indicates they believe the God of Abraham a fictitious character or is dead. Their Jesus, an evolving imaginary deity: condoning traditional changes! Such a Jesus never lived! The God of Abraham is the same Lord God that delivered Israel from Egyptian bondage through Moses and called twelve apostles. We shared Colossians 1:15-20, “which in fact reveals that Jesus is Creator, Re-creator, Sustainer, Redeemer and head of His church a study or so back.” Let’s study two other text that reveals the same.
(Hebrews 1:1-4; “After God spoke long ago in various portions and in various ways to our ancestors through the prophets, in these last days He has spoken to us in a Son, whom He appointed heir of all things and through whom He created the world. The Son is the radiance of His glory and the representation of His essence, and He sustains all things by His powerful word and so when He had accomplished cleansing for sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high. Thus He became so far better than the angels as He has inherited a name superior to theirs.
Superior to Angels
(Heb1:5-10; “For to which of the angels did God ever say, “You are My Son! Today I have fathered you”? And in another place He says, “I will be His father and He will be My Son.” (6) But when He again brings His firstborn into the world, He says, “Let all the angels of God worship Him!” And He says of the angels, “He makes His angels spirits and His ministers a flame of fire,” (8) but of The Son He says, “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever, and a righteous scepter is the scepter of Your kingdom. You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness. So God, your God, has anointed You over Your companions with the oil of rejoicing.” And You founded the earth in the beginning, Lord and the heavens are the works of Your hands.
(Heb 1:11-14; They will perish, but You continue. And they will all grow old like a garment, and like a robe you will fold them up and like a garment they will be changed, but you are the same and your years will never run out.” But to which of the angels has He ever said, “Sit at My right hand until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet”? Are they not all ministering spirits, sent out to serve those who will inherit salvation? God our Father and Son of God “Jesus” is the only God followers of Jesus are called to worship.
Nations and most people groups calling themselves Christian, stopped practicing the biblical definition of Christendom long ago. The shame is; so called western world professing Christians with God‘s holy bible in many homes are practicing Baal‘s teaching more than Jesus‘. Who has the wit to see; “Jesus, through angelic beings destroyed Sodom and Gomorra for their abominable life styles? (What denominational preacher groups is defining sin from God’s point of view and is calling nations to repentance?)
God used the Babylonians to overthrow and take Israelites captive because they turned from Him and to imaginary pagan gods like Baal. Who has the wit to know that the God of Abraham is still in control? He can take nations down and lift up whom He will; “He still gives people leaders they deserve.” He still allows Satan to be he god of unbelievers.
Common intellect teaches thinking people; “many religions with their various doctrines, (claiming to teach Jesus’ Way) are led by a wrong spirit.” Jesus and His apostles taught that God opens minds and calls whom He chooses. Thus we are led to emphasize their words “called and chosen.” The prophet Moses was led to reveal how many religions would corrupt the many.
(Deut 31:28-29; “Gather to me all your tribal elders and officials so I can speak to them directly about these things and call the heavens and the earth to witness against them. For I know that after I die you will totally corrupt yourselves and turn away from the path I have commanded you to walk. Disaster will confront you in the days to come because you will act wickedly before the Lord, inciting Him to anger because of your actions.”)
If today’s professing Christians were taught; “followers of Jesus are Abraham’s heirs, perhaps more people would convert to true Believers IN. Paul taught it. (Galatians 2;29; “And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to the promise.”
Long before Israel’s deliverance from Egypt. the non-Israelite world populations were worshiping imaginary god’s. Moses knew Abraham’s descendents would be led in many directions by people with agendas. Yield to their fleshly inherited nature. From within their inherited nature, “Moses knew the Israelites would devise gods to fit their carnal thinking. Worldly religions denominations don’t think of our Creator God in terms of, “One that chooses His followers.”
(Matt 20:16; “So the last will be first, and the first last.” “For many are called but few are chosen.”) We need to meditate on this awesomeness of our Creator. Christians are spirit led to believe IN the fact that God loves and has mercy on whom He chooses. He has the power to give physical life back to the dead; “regardless of when they died.” He has the power to give spiritual life to Believers IN Jesus “Christians.” He has the power to overthrow mankind’s governments on earth and usher in His Way. It’s good to think on, “consider” “speculate” about the things He plans to set right.
(2 Peter 1:16-21; “For we “apostles” did not follow cleverly concocted fables when we made known to you the power and return of our Lord Jesus Christ; no, we were eyewitnesses of His grandeur. For He received honor and glory from God the Father, when that voice was conveyed to Him by the Majestic Glory: “This is My dear Son, in whom I am delighted.” (18) When this voice was conveyed from heaven, we ourselves heard it, for we were with Him on the holy mountain. Moreover, we “apostles” possess the prophetic word as an altogether reliable thing. You do well if you pay attention to this as you would to a light shining in a murky place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. Above all, you do well if you recognize this: No prophecy of scripture ever comes about by the prophet’s own imagination, for no prophecy was ever borne of human impulse; rather, men carried along by the Holy Spirit spoke from God.”)
After Jesus’ resurrection His apostles still had various notions; “didn’t understand the scriptures until Jesus opened their minds and gave their commission.
(Luke 24:44-48; Then He said to them, “These are My words that I spoke to you while I was still with you, that everything written about Me in the law of Moses and the prophets and the psalms must be fulfilled.” Then He opened their minds so they could understand the scriptures, and said to them, “Thus it stands written that the Christ would suffer and would rise from the dead on the third day and repentance for the forgiveness of sins would be proclaimed in His name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem. (48) You are witnesses of these things.”) If Jesus’ apostles needed a miraculous opening of their minds to understand the scriptures, “how can the many denominations think they can teach His truth except it be given.
The apostles’ teaching was a continuance of Jesus’ teachings and His revelations to them. Jesus’ righteousness; powers demonstrated healings, re-creation of foods and physically resurrecting Lazarus reveals His characteristics. Peter acknowledged with Moses, that false prophets arose among the Israelites of old and with Moses’ prophesies continuing in the last days.
(2 Peter 2:1-3; “But false prophets arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. These false teachers will infiltrate your midst with destructive heresies, even to the point of denying the Master who bought “purchased” them. As a result, they will bring swift destruction on themselves. And many will follow their debauched lifestyles. Because of these false teachers, the way of truth will be slandered. (3) And in their greed they will exploit you with deceptive words. Their condemnation pronounced long ago is not sitting idly by; their destruction is not asleep.”)
From the foundation of the world, our Creator knew the details unfolding in this age. He knew nations calling themselves Christian, would condone the very things that are an abomination to Himself. (Namely, denying His Sabbaths, homosexuality and same sex marriages.) (Followers of Jesus were bought “purchased” with the price of His blood. The Son of God, “our Creator’s own blood.” (See John 1:1-5 and review Colossians 1:15-20) This world’s professing Christians don’t know the Father nor Jesus the Son.
(John 8:19; “Then they began asking Him, “Who is your Father?” Jesus answered, “You do not know either Me or My Father. If you knew Me you would know My Father too.”) Remember, “Jesus is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation, for all things in heaven and on earth were created by Him “
Lucifer was a created angelic being. He rebelled and led other angelic beings. Now he is called “Satan” “the devil” “the deceiver” “prince of the power of the air” he is God’s and Christian’s enemy. Satan’s fate is sealed and Jesus inspired Isaiah to write from the perspective that it is done. (To understand, know that, Sheol is the proper name of the subterranean world which is regarded as the land of the dead.)
(Isaiah 14:9-21; (Sheol, below is stirred up about you, “Satan” ready to meet you when you arrive. It rouses the spirits of the dead for you, all the former leaders of the earth; it makes all the former kings of the nations rise from their thrones. All of them respond to you, saying: ‘You too have become weak like us! You have become just like us! Your splendor has been brought down to Sheol, as well as the sound of your stringed instruments. You lie on a bed of maggots, with a blanket of worms over you. (12) Look how you have fallen from the sky, O shining one, son of the dawn! You have been cut down to the ground, O conqueror of the nations!)
Jesus kicked Satan out of the heavenly realms and Jesus gave his disciples power over Satan. (Then the seventy-two returned with joy, saying, “Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name!” So Jesus said to them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.” Luke 10;17-18)
(Isa 14:13-15; “Satan“ “You said to yourself, “I will climb up to the sky. Above the stars of El. I will set up my throne. I will rule on the mountain of assembly on the remote slopes of Zaphon. I will climb up to the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High!” But you “Satan” were brought down to Sheol, to the remote slopes of the pit. Those who see you stare at you, they look at you carefully, thinking: “Is this the man who shook the earth, the one who made kingdoms tremble? Is this the one who made the world like a desert, who ruined its cities, and refused to free his prisoners so they could return home?” As for all the kings of the nations, all of them lie down in splendor, each in his own tomb. But you have been thrown out of your grave “pit” like a shoot that is thrown away. You lie among the slain, among those who have been slashed by the sword, among those headed for the stones of the pit, as if you were a mangled corpse. (20) You will not be buried with them, because you destroyed your land and killed your people. The offspring of the wicked will never be mentioned again. Prepare to execute his sons for the sins their ancestors have committed. They must not rise up and take possession of the earth, or fill the surface of the world with cities.”” ) This is the final fate of Satan and all who, “after having Jesus revealed to them” refuse to obey.”
