The Way 2, revealed to Moses, prophets and apostles, chapter 8

October 17th, 2017

10/17/17, God’s 7th month, Tishrei 27, 5778.( until sunset) To 6,700 in resident churches; individuals God is making temples of His Holy Spirit.

      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.”

The Way 2, Revealed to Moses, prophets and apostlse, chapter 7

October 15th, 2017

10/15/17, God’s 7th month, Tishrei 25, 5778.( until sunset) To 6,661 in resident churches; individuals God is making temples of His Holy Spirit. Followers of Jesus are potters clay in HIS, “the Master Potter’s” hand. Christians experiencing this relationship know it’s miraculously revealed knowledge. Know we are God’s creation, subject to Him and His Way. It’s revealed believing IN knowledge. We understand the difference of “Believing that and Believing IN.” Our desire is from God.

(Philippians 2:13; “for the one bringing forth in you both the desire and the effort – for the sake of His good pleasure – is God.”) When understanding the scriptures and His way is revealed; “then we need to turn from the old fleshly outlooks, to God’s Way.” Knowing the self serving, “what’s in it for me way” produces only temporary pleasures. That way opposed to God. Paul explains.

(Romans 8:6-11; “For the outlook of the flesh is death, but the outlook of the Spirit is life and peace, because the outlook of the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to the law of God, nor is it able to do so. Those who are in the flesh cannot please God. You, ‘followers of Jesus’ however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, this person does not belong to him. But if Christ is in you, your body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is your life because of righteousness. (11) Moreover if the Spirit of the One who raised Jesus from the dead lives in you, the One who raised Christ from the dead will also make your mortal bodies alive through his Spirit who lives in you”) It’s the Way of gifted eternal life.

Your challenge might be to prove all things and hold to what is good. (see 1 Thess 5:21) (The apostle Peter tells us; “Be sober and alert. Your enemy the devil, like a roaring lion, is on the prowl looking for someone to devour.” 1 Peter 5:8) Satan devours the world by deceiving individuals into believing one or more of his lies. When the devil’s lies are incorporated into the belief system, “truths must be twisted to support them.”

It was Jesus inspiring Isaiah’s pen; (“Your thinking is perverse! Should the Potter be regarded as clay? Should the thing made say about its Maker, “He didn’t make me”? Or should the pottery say about the Potter, “He doesn’t understand?” Isa 29:16) & (Isiah 64:8; “Yet, Lord, you are our father. We are the clay, and you are our Potter; we are all the product of Your labor.”)

Study these Isaiah chapters in and Jeremiah 18: “prove and believe.”

KNOWING we are but, Potter’s clay, “is to know humility and be submissive to God’s View in all things.” (Not accepting this truth defines one as an unbeliever.) Generally speaking, unbelievers believe Satan’s lie, which reality means, “you were born a deity to live forever someplace.” (re-study Genesis 3:)

Peter‘s first letter is to the temporary residences abroad, “that are called to be Believers IN, includes all Christians in every age.” The called and CHOSEN according to the foreknowledge of God the Father. A people set apart spiritually for OBEDIENCE and for sprinkling with Jesus Christ’s blood..(Review 1 Peter 1:1-2)

Peter is writing his second letter from Babylon. Silvanus is likely his secretary and by whom he is sending his letter. Peter’s purpose is to encourage Believers IN with the true grace of God, to help them stand FAST in The Faith. It’s Peters hope for all Saints. (Review 1 Peter 5:12-13)

Now to Peter’s second letter.

(2 Peter 1:1-2; “From Simeon Peter, a slave and apostle of Jesus Christ, to those who through the righteousness of our God and Savior, Jesus Christ, have been granted a faith just as precious as ours. (Note: “a people granted precious faith, like we apostles’ a gifted faith: not one conjured up or taught in seminars’ ) May grace and peace be lavished on you as you grow in the rich knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord!” ) NOTE: key words in Peter’s letters are “Foreknowledge of God, Chosen, Obedience, Slave, Granted faith and Grow in knowledge.”

How does Peter say faith is granted? Through the righteousness of our God and Savior, Jesus Christ! (May our prayer for one another be: “May grace and peace be lavished on you as you grow in the rich knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord!”) To grow in God’s grace, people must accept certain truths. Major truths being:Jesus created all things, believe IN what Jesus and the prophets said about Him, believe IN Jesus’ promises, particularly His return.” (Jesus replied, “This is the deed God requires – to believe IN the ONE whom HE sent.” John 6:29)

(2 Peter 1:3-4; “I, “Peter” can pray this because His (God the Father’s)divine power has bestowed on us everything necessary for life and godliness through the rich knowledge of the ONE who CALLED us by His own glory and excellence. (4) Through these things He has bestowed on us, His precious and most magnificent promises, so that by means of what was promised you may become partakers of THE DIVINE NATURE after escaping the worldly corruption that is produced by evil desire.”)

(How is that divine nature gifted? By promise! The world wants to believe Satan’ lie. “you are born divine and thus can decide what’s good and evil.”

This mental vanity in unbelievers denies that they live according to worldly corruption and evil desires. Most aren’t mindful of the corruption in this world’s entertainment and the many time consuming things that are ungodly.

BACK to being partakers of Jesus‘ “divine nature,” and Satan’s first lie to Eve. Satan knew God’s plan for mankind included His making THE WAY for Believers IN to be partakers of God’s divine nature. Thus to be at one with God, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. (Satan’s twist is to cause folks to think they are born with a divine nature, and a spirit within, that will live forever someplace rather than, to be gifted with God’s divine nature.) (Review Genesis 3:1-5) (6-7; When Eve saw that the tree produced fruit that was good for food, was attractive to the eye, and was desirable for making one wise, she took some of its fruit and ate it. She also gave some of it to her husband who was with her, and he ate it. (7) Then the eyes of both of them opened, and they knew they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.”)

Prior to their disobedient act of idolatry, Adam and Eve was not mindful of their nakedness. Satan knew what would appeal to their self serving nature. The desire to be wise in our own view of self, appeals to our fleshly inherited nature. A result of Adam and Eve’s disobedience is the aging process and “death to themselves and all mankind.” HOWEVER, may it be revealed to each; “God planned it all from the foundation of the world.” MAY each called out Believer IN be gifted with faith like that of Abraham’s and Moses’.

(Hebrews 11:23-27; “By faith, when Moses was born, his parents hid him for three months, because they saw the child was beautiful and they were not afraid of the king’s edict. By faith, when he grew up, Moses refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, choosing rather to be ill-treated with the people of God than to enjoy sin’s fleeting pleasure. (26) He regarded abuse suffered for Christ to be greater wealth than the treasures of Egypt, for his eyes were fixed on the reward. By faith he left Egypt without fearing the king’s anger, for he persevered as though he could see the One who is invisible.) This defines, Believing IN. Persevering in God’s Way as visualizing His promises.

(2 Peter 1:5-8; “For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith excellence, to excellence, knowledge; to knowledge, self-control; to self-control, perseverance; to perseverance, godliness; to godliness, brotherly affection; to brotherly affection, unselfish love. (8) For IF these things are really yours and are continually increasing, they will keep you from becoming ineffective and unproductive in your pursuit of knowing our Lord Jesus Christ more intimately.”) THESE are The Way of Believers IN. To know Jesus intimately is to know His characteristics, to be imputed with His mind.

Followers of Jesus’ goal must be; “overcome to the end.” (See Revelations 3:) KEEP in mind, Peter is not writing to the world at large “but to the called” and only God can open the minds of the blind.

(2 Peter 1:9-11; “But concerning the one who lacks such things – he is blind. That is to say, he is nearsighted, since he has forgotten about the cleansing of his past sins. Therefore, brothers and sisters, make every effort to be sure of your CALLING AND ELECTION. For by DOING this you will never stumble into sin. (11) For thus, an entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, will be richly provided for you.”)

Does Jesus’ words through Peter make the heart swell a bit? It does if we belong to Him. Is there enthusiasm for His Kingdom? It is if we belong to Him. Do we pray that His Kingdom soon come? We do if we know Him. All these teachings and this knowledge is for called out people in this last age since Jesus‘ ascension. (The principle is: “So the last will be first, and the first last.” Matt 20:16) (Another principle is: “many are called but few chosen.” (Matt 22:14) Let’s consider Jesus’ wedding feast invitation parable and understand why parables? (Review Matthew 13:10, for why parables.)

(Matt 22:1-14; “Jesus spoke to them again in parables, saying: “The kingdom of heaven can be compared to a king who gave a wedding banquet for his son. He sent his slaves to summon those who had been invited to the banquet, but they would not come. (4) Again he sent other slaves, saying, ‘Tell those who have been invited, “Look! The feast I have prepared for you is ready. My oxen and fattened cattle have been slaughtered, and everything is ready. Come to the wedding banquet.” (5) But they were indifferent and went away, one to his farm, another to his business. The rest seized his slaves, insolently mistreated them, and killed them. (7) The king was furious! He sent his soldiers, and they put those murderers to death and set their city on fire. (8) Then he said to his slaves, ‘The wedding is ready, but the ones who had been invited were not worthy. So go into the main streets and invite everyone you find to the wedding banquet.’ And those slaves went out into the streets and gathered all they found, both bad and good, and the wedding hall was filled with guests. (11) But when the king came in to see the wedding guests, he saw a man there who was not wearing wedding clothes. (12) And he said to him, ‘Friend, how did you get in here without wedding clothes?’ But he had nothing to say. 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!’ (14) For many are called, but few are chosen.”)

Many of Jesus’ prophets were persecuted and killed. History indicates that, All but John was killed. The Israelites in large measure refused to believe. Today, all who are called are invited to repent, grow in grace and knowledge of God the Father and God the Son; “Jesus Christ.” Many are called but few are chosen!

So, why do the called need to be stirred up? The called, once enlightened, sometimes, “do not hold fast to the faith?” (Peter indicated to the overseers, “shepherds of the flock” the called need constant spiritual care.) Constant reminders of their calling and God’s promises. Thus, when we teach, we are reminding ourselves and all who are called to believe IN.

(2 Peter 1:12-15; “Therefore, I intend to remind you constantly of these things even though you know them and are well established in the truth that you now have. (13) Indeed, as long as I am in this tabernacle, I consider it right to stir you up by way of a reminder, since I know that my tabernacle will soon be removed, because our Lord Jesus Christ revealed this to me. (15) Indeed, I will also make every effort that, after my departure, you have a testimony of these things.”) Thankfully, we still have this testimony! God has preserved Peter’ testimony. Thank God we have His written Word as testimony. Rightfully so, it saddens us to think of Peter knowing that his end was near. (Peter and each apostle understood that, “the servant is not greater than his Master.”)

Jesus said; “they persecuted Me, they will persecute you.” Peter knew he was gifted with eternal life and would be in the first resurrection. That he and the other apostles would one day rule over the twelve tribes of Israel. (see Revelations 21:18)

The Way 2, revealed to Moses, prophets and apostles, chapter 6

October 13th, 2017

10/13/17, God’s 7th month, Tishrei 23, 5778. (Until sunset) To 6,576 in resident churches; individuals God are making temples of His Holy Spirit.

 Why Sabbaths

     The Pharisees accused Jesus of breaking the law when He went through a field eating some of the grain. Jesus reminded them of David entering the temple and eating sacred bread intended for the priest only. Then He said to them, “The Sabbath was made for people, not people for the Sabbath. For this reason the Son of Man is lord even of the Sabbath.” Mark 2:27-28) Jesus was and is; “Son of God and Son of man, because He willingly came in the flesh to be sacrificed for the sins of the world. But seemingly, God the Father has revealed His Son only to a few called out to be His Elect.

     The Son of God, “Jesus” is the deity who communicated with Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph. Jesus delivered Israel from Egyptian bondage as promised Abraham through Moses. The awesomeness of this wonderful truth was revealed to Jesus’ apostle Paul; who wrote: “For I do not want you to be unaware, brothers and sisters, that our fathers were all under the cloud and all passed through the sea, and all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea, and all ate the same spiritual food and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they were all drinking from the spiritual rock that followed them, and the rock was Christ.” 1Corinthians 10:1-4)

       Without remembering and keeping holy the Lord’s Sabbaths, people go off in many tangents as the world has done. Thus Sabbaths are set aside, “sanctified” for people - not people for the Sabbath. A person for the Sabbath was the Pharisee thinking when they accused Jesus of breaking the law when He went through the field plucking and eating. 

Without remembering God’s Sabbaths for their intended purposes, God’s created people become lackadaisical regarding to whom they actually belong. Pliable to erroneous, deceptive teaching.

       God the Father hasn’t revealed the supremacy of Jesus as Creator, Re-creator, Sustainer, the Christian’s emissary and coming king of kings to the many professing a belief in Him. Jesus explains through His apostle Paul.

      (Colossians 1:15-20; He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation, for all things in heaven and on earth were created by Him – all things, whether visible or invisible, whether thrones or dominions, whether principalities or powers – all things were created through Him and for Him. He Himself is before all things and all things are held together ’sustained’ in Him. He is the head of the body, the church, as well as the beginning, the firstborn from among the dead, so that He Himself may become first in all things. For God, ’the Father’ was pleased to have all His fullness dwell in the Son and through Him to reconcile all things to Himself by making peace through the blood of His cross – through Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven.”)

       Major denominations see Jesus through the agenda laid out by Catholicism. Who incorporated many abominable to God practices with a little Judaism, calling it Christian. Astute people need not look any further than back to Pope Gregory era calendar and “whom days of the week are named for proof.” Their history of persecuting Believers IN Jesus is available for all to see.

     Jesus’ Millennial Commands for Jacob’s Heirs, “Christians.” 

        (Isaiah 58: “Shout loudly! Don’t be quiet! Yell as loud as a trumpet! Confront My people with their rebellious deeds; confront Jacob’s family with their sin! They seek Me day after day; they want to know My requirements, like a nation that does what is right and does not reject the law of their God. They ask Me for just decrees; they want to be near God. (3) They lament, ‘Why don’t you notice when we fast? Why don’t You pay attention when we humble ourselves?’ Look, at the same time you fast, you satisfy your selfish desires, you oppress your workers. Look, your fasting is accompanied by arguments, brawls, and fistfights. Do not fast as you do today, trying to make your voice heard in heaven. (5) Is this really the kind of fasting I want? Do I want a day when people merely humble themselves, bowing their heads like a reed and stretching out on sackcloth and ashes? Is this really what you call a fast, a day that is pleasing to the Lord? (6) No, this is the kind of fast I want. I want you to remove the sinful chains, to tear away the ropes of the burdensome yoke, to set free the oppressed, and to break every burdensome yoke. I want you to share your food with the hungry and to provide shelter for homeless, oppressed people. When you see someone naked, clothe him! Don’t turn your back on your own flesh and blood! (8) Then your light will shine like the sunrise; your restoration will quickly arrive; your godly behavior will go before you, and the Lord’s splendor will be your rear guard. (9) Then you will call out, and the Lord will respond; you will cry out, and He will reply, ‘Here I am.’ You must remove the burdensome yoke from among you and stop pointing fingers and speaking sinfully. You must actively help the hungry and feed the oppressed. Then your light will dispel the darkness, and your darkness will be transformed into noonday. (11) The Lord will continually lead you; He will feed you even in parched regions. He will give you renewed strength, and you will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring that continually produces water. Your perpetual ruins will be rebuilt; you will reestablish the ancient foundations. You will be called, ‘The one who repairs broken walls, the one who makes the streets inhabitable again.’

     58:13; You must observe the Sabbath rather than doing anything you please on My holy day. You must look forward to the Sabbath and treat the Lord’s holy day with respect. You must treat it with respect by refraining from your normal activities,

and by refraining from your selfish pursuits and from making business deals. Then you will find joy in your relationship to the Lord, and I will give you great prosperity and cause crops to grow on the land I gave to your ancestor Jacob. “ Know for certain that the Lord has spoken.”)

       The rebellious that looked to Satan’s immortality deception, also teach a Sabbath change and twist Paul’s letter to the Colossian’s. Ponder whether translators had an agenda too. 

       (Colossians 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 word “only,” is not in the Greek text is supplied in the English translation to bring out the force of the Greek phrase.” the shadow of the things to come, but the reality is Christ! (18) 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.”

       Who looks to Catholic made saints and worships images? Don’t yield to those saying, “feast days, new moon and Sabbaths are only for Old Covenant people.” Sabbaths foreshadow things to come. Jesus’ millennial rule on earth, putting sin out and judgment.    

      (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.”) Baptism symbolizes having died with Christ to worldly, human commands and teachings.

       Jesus’ leading the Israelites through the sea with water banked on both sides and under the cloud looked forward to being immersed in Christ. Hebrews is to a people recognizing their heavenly calling to His Rest.

         (Hebrews 3:1-6; “Therefore, holy brothers and sisters, partners in a heavenly calling, take note of Jesus, the apostle and high priest whom we confess, who is faithful to the One ‘God the Father’ who appointed Him, as Moses was also in God’s house. For He, ‘Jesus’ has come to deserve greater glory than Moses, just as the builder of a house deserves greater honor than the house itself! For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God. Now Moses was faithful in all God’s house as a servant, to testify to the things that would be spoken. (6) But Christ is faithful as a Son over God’s house. We ‘Christians’ are of His house, if in fact we hold firmly to our confidence and the hope we take pride in. (See Psalms 95)

     (Heb 3:7-14; “Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says, “Oh, that today you would listen as He speaks!Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, in the day of testing in the wilderness.There your fathers tested Me and tried Me, and they saw My works for forty years.Therefore, I became provoked at that generation and said, Their hearts are always wandering and they have not known My ways.’ (11) “As I swore in My anger, They will never enter My ‘Sabbath’ rest!’” See to it, brothers and sisters, that none of you has an evil, unbelieving heart that forsakes the living God. But exhort one another each day, as long as it is called “Today,” that none of you may become hardened by sin’s deception. (14) For we, ‘followers of Jesus’ have become partners with Christ, if in fact we hold our initial confidence firm until the end.

     (Heb 3:15 As it says, “Oh, that today you would listen as He speaks! Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.” For which ones heard and rebelled? Was it not all who came out of Egypt under Moses’ leadership? And against whom provoked God for forty years? Was it not those who sinned, whose dead bodies fell in the wilderness? And to whom did He swear they would never enter into His Rest, except those who were disobedient? So we see that they could not enter because of unbelief.”)

       (Matthew 12:1-8; At that time Jesus went through the grain fields on a Sabbath. His disciples were hungry, and they began to pick heads of wheat and eat them. But when the Pharisees saw this they said to Him, “Look, your disciples are doing what is against the law to do on the Sabbath.” He said to them, “Haven’t you read what David did when he and his companions were hungry – how He entered the house of God and they ate the sacred bread, which was against the law for him or his companions to eat, but only for the priests? Or have you not read in the law that the priests in the temple desecrate the Sabbath and yet are not guilty? I tell you that something greater than the temple is here. If you had known what this means: ‘I want mercy and not sacrifice,’ you would not have condemned the innocent. For the Son of Man is lord of the Sabbath.”)

       Likewise Jesus gave Moses the seven annual Sabbaths looking back and forward to His Passover, putting sin out, gifting with His Spirit, His return, the resurrection, His millennial rule and Judgment. (First season: Passover and Feast of Unleavened Bread. Sacrificial blood saving and the gifted desire to put sin out.) (Second season: Pentecost - Feast of First Fruits, the gifting of His Spirit, making people spiritually at one with God.) 

(Third season: Trumpets, Atonement, Feast of Tabernacles and Last Great Day. Trumpets looking forward to and foreshadowing the resurrection. Atonement, being at one with God. Feast of Tabernacles, peace on earth, Satan bound and sharing rule with Jesus. Last Great Day, judgment, God the Father coming down with New Jerusalem; God the Son and all submitting to God the Father. God’s weekly and annual Sabbaths are perpetual.

 

The Way 2; revealed to Moses, prophets and apostles. chapter 5

October 12th, 2017

9/12/17, God’s 7th month, Tishrei 22, 5778.( until sunset) To 6,455 in resident churches; individuals God is making temples of His Holy Spirit. On this; God’s seventh month, the 22nd day Jesus was keeping The Feast of Tabernacles when John recorded: (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.’” (Now He 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.)

Heavenly Father: please shorten this age of demonic deception, false messiahs, and untruths that has blinded the world spiritually. Let this study find truth seekers and be a help in their efforts. We ask and praise You in the name and nature of Jesus. AMEN.

An obstacle to mental, intellectual and spiritual maturity is Satan’s influence, as he did Eve. Saying; “you’re divine and can decide for self what’s right, wrong, good and evil.” When God isn’t looked to for what’s good and evil, people are idolaters.

People around this globe have made gods of wood, stone, metal and many have mentally visualized imaginary gods they put on statues and imagine, looking to the heavens; allow their imagination to make the sun and other heavenly bodies their god. “Thus worshiping creation rather than the Creator.” So, there are about as many gods as there are people groups. The apostle Paul put it as follows.

(Romans 1:22-25;“Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for an image resembling mortal human beings, (as statues of their idea of Jesus’ likeness) or birds or four-footed animals or reptiles. Therefore God gave them over to the desires of their hearts to impurity, to dishonor their bodies among themselves. They exchanged the truth of God for a lie and worshiped and served the creation rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.”)

There is only ONE Creator God who made all things, including mankind in His own image. (He gave mankind His instruction manual we know as the holy scriptures, as was revealed to Moses, the prophets and His apostles.) From Genesis through Revelations, the scriptures teach that God created and that God MADE mankind, male and female for His purpose. Jesus explained.

“But from the beginning of creation He made them male and female. For this reason a man will leave his father and mother, and the two will become one flesh. So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.” Mark 10:6-9)

Believers IN, are spirit led to Believe IN God, study His Word, seek Him and live His Way. Spirit led to grow mentally, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually. Grow in knowledge of His Way, learn of His grace, mercy and promises. God leads His People in the way of love, trust and believing IN faith. For His own purposes, God allows this world’s majorities to be deceived by Satan’s lies and live in ways that seem right to their fleshly inherited nature. Deceiving the world as he deceived Eve. Consider Satan’s lies, “that when believed causes a twisting of truths.”\

Understanding truth begins when we know that God created us in His image and for His purpose. If people don’t believe God created, they wind up accepting partial truths, from within their fleshly agendas. People that don’t believe in creation are willingly ignorant.

It should be common since, “when we believe God created, we accept the fact that only He knows what’s good and evil for His people created in His likeness. (Only God knows which life practices promote what’s good and which promotes the bad.)

At some point long ago, Satan knew that God had a plan for a called out people. (Satan knows about God’s plan for his demise and that ultimately God’s judgment will be the destruction of all evil.) He knew God had a plan to make a chosen people in His image spiritually! Likely, Satan’s rebellion sprang from knowing, “God was going to make a people in His spiritual likeness, that would be over angels. A people that would inherit immortality. A people that would be imputed with the mind of Christ. So, Satan’s lie did contain a partial truth. The big twist he put forth was saying are born immortal! God’s truth is, “immortality is gifted to the called, gifted to believe IN, through Jesus Christ, those whom God chooses to father.”

The rebellious Satan’s two part lie includes, (disobey your Creator, take what’s forbidden as you desire, “for God knows you are made to live forever someplace.” (God don’t want you to know you were born divine.)

The apostle Paul understood and proclaimed.

(2 Corinthians 4:3-4; “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.”)

Jesus taught through His apostle Peter that people are as foreigners, as unbelievers, living according to this world’s system of things, until called to believe IN and obey God’s truth. Let us review.

(1 Peter 1:22-25; “You have purified your souls by obeying the truth in order to show sincere mutual love. So love one another earnestly from a pure heart. You have been BORN ANEW, not from perishable but from imperishable seed, through the living and enduring word of God. For all flesh is like grass and all its glory like the flower of the grass; the grass withers and the flower falls off, but the word of the Lord endures forever.”)

Peter is teaching; “NOT UNTIL one is called, their minds spiritually opened; is BORN ANEW and this understanding given. We are each as grass, all inherited death from the first man Adam. ONLY after being BORN ANEW, are we able to obey from a mind that believes IN. (So get rid of all evil and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander. And yearn like newborn infants for pure, spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up to salvation, if you have experienced the Lord’s kindness.”1Pet 2:1-3)

(1 Peter 3:13-22; “For who is going to harm you if you are devoted to what is good? But in fact, if you happen to suffer for doing what is right, you are blessed. But do not be terrified of them or be shaken. But set Christ apart as Lord in your hearts and always be ready to give an answer to anyone who asks about the hope you possess. (16) Yet do it with courtesy and respect, keeping a good conscience, so that those who slander your good conduct in Christ may be put to shame when they accuse you. For it is better to suffer for doing good, if God wills it, than for doing evil. (18) Because Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, to bring you to God, by being put to death in the flesh, but by being made alive in the spirit. (19) In it “the spirit” He went and preached to the spirits in prison, after they were disobedient long ago when God patiently waited in the days of Noah as an ark was being constructed. In the ark a few, that is eight souls, were delivered through water. (21) And this prefigured baptism, which now saves you – not the washing off of physical dirt but the pledge of a good conscience to God – through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, who went into heaven and is at the right hand of God with angels and authorities and powers subject to Him.”)

BAPTISM symbolizes being immersed in the Word, “Jesus” a PLEDGE of obedience, symbolizes believing IN which is the gifted obedience that saves. (MAY WE KNOW, all things are possible with God.)

Jesus went and preached to the “mortal” spirits of deceased people that lived before the flood. A major problem for many bible readers. But not to those knowing the awesomeness of God. We do not need to know the particulars of Jesus’ spiritually communing with these deceased persons.

Perhaps Jesus made some ready for the first resurrection. Perhaps He reviewed and re-enforced the message He delivered through Noah. REMEMBER the transfiguration of Moses, Elijah and Jesus witnessed to by Peter, James and John?

(Matt 17:1-3: “Six days later Jesus took with Him Peter, James, and John the brother of James, and led them privately up a high mountain. And He was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and his clothes became white as light. Then Moses and Elijah also appeared before them, talking with Him.) Remember, God has no limitations. Satan, the devil, tempter and god of this age, knows of God’s creativity.

(Matt 4:3-4; “The tempter came and said to Him, “If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become bread.” But He answered, “It is written, ‘Man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”)

Consider Jesus’ creative powers. The Son of God and Creator, “Jesus” created aged wine from water, re-created food to feed thousands several times during His earthly ministry, made lepers instantly whole and gave physical life back to deceased persons. How awesome our Creator God, “Jesus.”

Satan knows his demise; the scriptures and the power allotted to him temporarily in this age. Allowed to be the god of unbelievers temporarily. God has His reasons.

(Matt 4:5-11; “Then the devil took Jesus to the holy city, had Him stand on the highest point of the temple, and said to Him, “If you are the Son of God, throw Yourself down. For it is written, ‘He will command his angels concerning you’ and ‘with their hands they will lift you up, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.’” Jesus said to him, “Once again it is written: ‘You are not to put the Lord your God to the test.’” Again, the devil took Him to a very high mountain, and showed Him ALL the kingdoms of the world and their grandeur. (9) And he said to Him, “I will give you all these things if you throw Yourself to the ground and worship me.” Then Jesus said to him, “Go away, Satan! For it is written: ‘You are to worship the Lord your God and serve only Him.’”(11) Then the devil left Him, and angels came and began ministering to His needs.”)

Jesus did not say to Satan, “these kingdoms aren’t yours to give.” We Believers know that our Creator can take charge at will. The time is soon coming when Jesus will return and bind Satan as it is written in Jesus’ revelations to John. Satan’s power over nations and unbelieving people is likely beyond our ability to understand. We thank God for His promises.

SEEMINGLY, only God’s Elect aren’t vulnerable to Satan’s deceptions. (Jesus said; “For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the Elect.” Matt 24:24)

Believing ONE of Satan’s lies makes people vulnerable to Satan’s demonic deceptions. “People’s love of signs and wonders make many vulnerable. (It is the message of truth, “His Word” believers IN are led by, NOT lies, signs and wonders.) Jesus’ apostle Paul explained.

(1 Thess 2:13; “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’ message is not at work among people not imputed with His spirit.

The source of all knowledge is in our Creator God, His truth as outlined in His holy scriptures and understood by His People. Only through Him is mankind able to grow in knowledge that leads to mental, intellectual, emotional and spiritual maturity. When one of Satan’s lies is believed, another must be believed to support it, then many truths must be twisted.

The Way 2, revealed to Moses, prophets and apostles, chapter 4

October 8th, 2017

9/8/17, God’s 7th month, Tishrei 18, 5778.( until sunset) To 6,455 in resident churches; individuals God is making temples of His Holy Spirit.

      We can’t open minds, we can only present God’s truth and know He will do the rest. Many people who reject God’s commandments and oracles will become believers IN during Jesus’ millennial reign. Those who refuse will die a second death. (See Rev 21:8) 

      (1 Peter 2:8; “They stumble because they disobey the word, as they were DESTINED to do.”) Unbelievers can’t grasp “a majority are DESTINED to the second resurrection and some a second death.) (See Rev 2:11, 20:6, 20:14 & 21:8)

      (1 Peter 2:9-10; “But you “Christians” 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.”)

     What person knows their own mind? Unbelievers do not. The majority accept an erroneous definition of Christianity. Deceived by a religiosity of demonic origin and worship a god of their imagination, taking comfort in it. Thus this world’s definition of Christendom is “people believing Jesus lived.”

      Does bible study, prayer and meditation change people’s outlook regarding internal desires, choices, practices, priorities and a love of tradition? From a fleshly perspective the answer is yes. Such works can help a person overcome habits, help one be a better citizen, parent etc. (Works can’t make a person a Believer IN Jesus as He is manifested to be in the holy scriptures.) If any works could, people could boast and debate with God about, “each being born with a sin nature inherited from Adam:” The holy scriptures teach that a person can only inherit a nature like Jesus’ by “God the Father’s supernatural calling.” Without which we can’t escape our inherited internal desires for popularity, prestige and trust in our own intellect. We can’t totally escape our inherited from Adam nature without God’s spiritual help. (A gifted supernatural nature change is what’s meant by, “born anew.) We can’t rid ourselves of our inherited sin nature, “aside from being gifted to believe IN Jesus as He manifest Himself to be.”

       When we are gifted with a desire to know God intimately we need to know where that desire came from. Jesus tells us through His apostle Paul. (Philippians 2:12-13; 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.

      Consider; from where do opinions, divisions etc come from? Particularly regarding how one becomes a professing Christian? Do they not come from people with personal agendas that usually fit a fleshly worldly outlook?

       Protestants generally teach “people can become a Christian at a time of their choosing.” Evidence of conversion is church attendance, participation and tithing. For some “evidence of conversion is speaking in a language unknown to themselves.” For “Eastern Orthodox and Roman Catholics” evidence of conversion may be making a sin confession to the priest, then demonstrate traditional loyalties. Little children and babies can be pronounced as member Christians at a sprinkling. Adults can learn the church’s catechism to become a mature Christians in the church’s view.

      All these things disagrees with Jesus and His apostles’ teaching about membership in God’s church. Jesus taught that one must be, “born anew” “born from above” “fathered by God” (See John 3:3, 3:7 & 1 Peter 1:23-25) A miraculous opening of the mind to comprehend spiritual truth “is Jesus and each apostle’s teaching.” (The word, “called” is key to this understanding.) Jesus must be revealed, before we can believe IN Him, as He manifest Himself to be in His holy scriptures. Peter teaches the Way of Life, Jesus requires of Believers IN.

      (1 Peter 2:11-12; “Dear friends, I urge you as foreigners and exiles to keep away from fleshly desires that do battle against the soul, “your being, the flesh” and maintain good conduct among the non-Christians, so that though they now malign you as wrongdoers, they may see your good deeds and glorify God when He appears.”)

      People who malign in this age will be complementary when Jesus appears. Peter’s focus is on the time of Jesus’ return! We need to be mindful that populations at large have always been critical of, “God’s Way of Truth.” The world rejected and still rejects Jesus’ teaching. Why? (People love this world’s system of things, holidays that honor the likes of Baal etc.) Jesus’ followers are spiritually taught to count the cost before making a commitment to Him. Luke recorded Jesus.

      (Luke 14:25-33; “Now large crowds were accompanying Jesus, and turning to them He said, “If anyone comes to Me and does not hate, “love less by comparison” his own father and mother, and wife and children, and brothers and sisters, and even his own life, he cannot be My disciple.” (HATE is bad translating. “Love less by comparison” is added for clarification.) (27) Whoever does not carry his own cross and follow Me cannot be My disciple. 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? Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation and is not able to finish the tower, all who see it will begin to make fun of him. (30) They will say, ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish!’ Or what king, going out to confront another king in battle, will not sit down first and determine whether he is able with ten thousand to oppose the one coming against him with twenty thousand? If he cannot succeed, he will send a representative while the other is still a long way off and ask for terms of peace. (33) In the same way therefore not one of you can be My disciple if he does not renounce all his own possessions.”)

     We are led to conclude “all in our care belongs to God.” We conclude “we’re not greater than our master.” We conclude “if they persecuted Jesus, they will persecute us for living His Way.”

     (John 15:20-21; “Jesus said; “Remember what I told you, ‘A slave is not greater than his Master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they obeyed My word, they will obey yours too. But they will do all these things to you on account of My name, because they do not know the One who sent Me.” Few are persecuted, for using the name “Jesus” but when led to practice living as Jesus did, the world takes a negative view of us. Expect to be “maligned as wrongdoers” by unbelieving people.” Remember, “Christians are in this world but not of this world.”

      (1 Peter 2:13-17; “Be subject to every human institution for the Lord’s sake, whether to a king as supreme or to governors as those he commissions to punish wrongdoers and praise those who do good. For God wants you to silence the ignorance of foolish people by doing good. (16) Live as free people, not using your freedom as a pretext for evil, but as God’s slaves. Honor all people, love the family of Believers, fear God, honor the king.”)

      Followers of Jesus are spirit led to live, “looking to Jesus as King, Savior and Shepherd.” Mindful that the only true freedom is to be Jesus’ slave. Every other way, enslaves people to their own sin nature and Satan’s deceptive life style practices. The principle of being obedient to Jesus begins with our fleshly conduct and outlook. Training children with loving discipline, which carries over to a servitude outlook when they work for pay.

      (1 Peter 2:18-25; “Slaves, be subject to your masters with all reverence, not only to those who are good and gentle, but also to those who are perverse. For this finds God’s favor, if because of conscience toward God someone endures hardships in suffering unjustly. (20) For what credit is it if you sin and are mistreated and endure it? But if you do good and suffer and so endure, this finds favor with God. For to this you were called since Christ also suffered for you, leaving an example for you to follow in His steps. (22) Jesus committed no sin nor was deceit found in His mouth. When He was maligned, He did not answer back; when He suffered, He threatened no retaliation, but committed Himself to God who judges justly. (24) Jesus Himself bore our sins in His body, on the tree, that we may cease from sinning and LIVE for righteousness. By His wounds you were healed. (25) For you were going astray like sheep but now you have turned back to the Shepherd and Guardian of your souls - your being.”)

      Be content in whatever state of being we are put in. Know that God provides. Pray for and look for opportunity, for open doors, for ways to improve, knowing that God makes all things possible.

      Satan is the author of discontentment, jealously and division. But Jesus endured, set the example, we should follow. When maligned He endured it, “not answering back.” Thus, we are spirit led to learn from our particular situations. He knows our various plights, “we each have things to overcome.” May we realize “our lives in the flesh are temporary and live accordingly.” Our fleshly living practices is training and opportunity to grow in the knowledge of God. A time for overcoming our inherited nature, obstacles of the flesh and demonic influences.

       Yes, we need to count the cost. We can learn from Jesus and His apostles’ personal lives and shared experiences. Consider Paul’s sharing with the Philippians.

      (Phil 4:10-14; “I have great joy in the Lord because now at last you have again expressed your concern for me. (Now I know you were concerned before but had no opportunity to do anything.) I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content in any circumstance. I have experienced times of need and times of abundance. In any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of contentment, whether I go satisfied or hungry, have plenty or nothing. I am able to do all things through the One who strengthens me. (14) Nevertheless, you did well to share with me in my trouble.”)

      God ordained that His church and the human family be structured to His will and for His purpose. Spiritual lessons are learned when we practice the family order.

      (1 Peter 3:1-6; “In the same way, wives, be subject to your own husbands. Then, even if some are disobedient to the word, they will be won over without a word by the way you live, when they SEE your pure and reverent conduct. Let your beauty not be external – the braiding of hair and wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes – but the inner person of the heart, the lasting beauty of a gentle and tranquil spirit, which is precious in God’s sight. For in the same way the holy women who hoped in God long ago adorned themselves by being subject to their husbands, like Sarah who obeyed Abraham, calling him lord. You become her children when you do what is good and have no fear in doing so.”

       (1Pet 3:7; “Husbands, in the same way, treat your wives with consideration as the weaker partners and show them honor as fellow heirs of the grace of life. In this way nothing will hinder your prayers.”

       Prayers in general are hindered when God’s spiritual laws aren’t adhered to! We are made in the image of God. He put the image of Himself in male and female. The natural nature in men is masculinity that yields to his wife’s needs. Designed to be protector, provider and lead with a loving dominance as family head. Mimicking Jesus’ leadership over His church.

    The natural nature in women is feminine tenderness with the family, able to persuade husband and children with these God gifted qualities. Her decorative and organizational skills compliment God’s will for His church family structure. The human family, male, female and children, foreshadows God’s own family in this and the age to come. We are fellow heirs of the grace of life! When we live His Way, our prayer’s aren’t hindered!

      (1 Peter 3:8-12; “Finally, all of you be harmonious, sympathetic, affectionate, compassionate, and humble. Do not return evil for evil or insult for insult, but instead bless others because you were called to inherit a blessing. (10) For the one who wants to love life and see good days must keep his tongue from evil and his lips from uttering deceit. And he must turn away from evil and do good; he must seek peace and pursue it. (12) For the eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous and His ears are open to their prayer. But the Lord’s face is against those who do evil.”)

       God is holy and teaches us that we are in an evil and adulterous generation “age.” Followers of Jesus are few in comparison. “In the world but not of the world” should be our practicing theme. Remember: we each were once as foreigners, “likened to Israelite’s condition when in sinful Egypt’s servitude.” The difference being spiritual. Deliverance, and conversion to His Way takes us from the selfish, vengeful and insulting way.

His Way 2, revealed to Moses, prophets and apostles, chapter 3

October 7th, 2017

9/7/17, God’s 7th month, Tishrei 17, 5778.( until sunset) To 6,438 in resident churches; individuals God is making temples of His Holy Spirit.

     It’s The Feast of Tabernacles’ day three of seven, foreshadowing Jesus’ millennial reign. A time to rejoice as we look forward to His promises. Let’s pray that God our Father choose to shorten time for the Elect’s sake.      

      God’s Way and this world’s reaction to “The Way” is Jesus’ prophecy fulfilled. (Matt 24:4-5; Jesus answered them, “Watch out that no one misleads you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and they will mislead many.” Speaking of these unbelievers Jesus also said: (Matt 24:9-14; “Then they will hand you over to be persecuted and will kill you. You will be hated by all the nations because of My name. 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.” Consider what’s politically popular in religions circles; what’s the majorities’ doctoring? AND what’s condoned within denominations. Majority doctrines are deceptive as Baal practices out weigh Jesus’.

      Peter and each apostle made reference to and quoted Moses often. Obedience to Jesus is the key words Moses, Jesus and each apostle taught. Worshiping God in spirit and truth is Old and New Covenant teaching. Worshiping the God of Abraham begins with our knowing, “God IS.” (Gifted revealed knowledge of Jesus’ life before the foundation of this world and His creation involvement is paramount.) May we be gifted to believe Jesus’ apostle John’s introduction of Jesus.

      (John 1:1-5; “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was fully God. The Word was with God in the beginning. All things were created by Him and apart from Him not one thing was created that has been created. In him was life, and the life was the light of mankind. And the light shines on in the darkness, but the darkness has not mastered it.”) verse 5 should be translated, “In Him IS life, and the Life IS the light of mankind. And the Light shines on in the darkness, but the darkness has not mastered it.”) Putting this text with, Colossians 1:15-20 and Hebrews 1: is paramount for believers. If denominations taught these three scripture text, they would know who gave Moses the ten commandments and oracles.

      One day the whole world will understand, “our Lord, Savior and Shepherd Jesus” is the God of Abraham, Moses, the prophets, David and Jesus’ apostles. Creator Jesus inspired each apostle’s letters.

      (1 Peter 1:22-25; “You, ‘followers of Jesus’ have purified your souls by obeying the truth in order to show sincere mutual love. So love one another earnestly from a pure heart. You “Christians” have been born anew, not from perishable but from imperishable seed, through the living and enduring Word of God. (24) For all flesh ‘HUMANITY’ is like grass and all its glory like the flower of the grass; the grass withers and the flower falls off, but the Word of the Lord endures forever. And this is the WORD that was proclaimed to you.” Quote from Isaiah 40:6. 8.)

      Peter assured Believers IN that they were “BORN ANEW” by believing IN the Word.” To believe IN Jesus is to practice His Way. A Pharisee “Nicodemus” ask Jesus about being born again; Jesus replied, “I tell you the solemn truth, unless a person is “born from above” he cannot see the kingdom of God.” John 3:3) (The scriptural terminology; “being born anew” “born from above” “born again” and “Fathered” all mean the same: (“it’s the gifted miraculous imputation of God’s Spirit put in a person’s mind.”) It’s the fathering of God! Allow Jesus’ apostle Paul’s spiritual explanation regarding where we each were before being born anew.

      (Ephesians 2:1-3; “And although you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you formerly lived according to this world’s present path, according to the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the ruler of the spirit that is now energizing the sons of disobedience, among whom ALL OF US also formerly lived out our lives in the cravings of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath even as the rest..”) Children of wrath is the position of each unbeliever!

      We can only turn to God in genuine repentance, “worship in spirit and truth” when we’re given to  know our inherited from Adam nature is what we must turn from. AND such turning isn’t from our choosing, but God’s.

      (Eph 2:4-10; “But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even though we were dead in transgressions, MADE US ALIVE together with

Christ – by grace you are saved! – and He raised us up with Him and SEATED us with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, (WHY?) to demonstrate in the coming ages the surpassing wealth of His grace in kindness toward US in Christ Jesus. (8) For by grace you are saved through faith, and this is NOT from yourselves, it is the GIFT of God; (9) it is NOT from works, so that no one can boast. For we are His workmanship, having been, “spirituallycreated in Christ Jesus for good works that God prepared beforehand so we may do them.)

      If salvation came from our choosing, we would have something to boast about.

      Repentance is valid, “when we genuinely desire to know our Creator’s Ways and KNOW that desire is gifted.” Know we cannot acquire the desire to love God as He manifest Himself to be from within our inherited human nature! The many professing Christians love the god of their imagination. Thus each denomination has a differing view.

      (Eph 2:11-12; Therefore remember that formerly you, “Gentiles in the flesh – who are called un-circumcision” by the so-called ‘circumcision that is performed on the body by human hands – “that you were at that time without the Messiah, alienated from the citizenship of Israel and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world.””)

      Speaking of the covenant promise to Abraham; Paul’s message is to gifted Believers IN Jesus. Not only “Gentiles in the flesh” but unconverted Israelites too, were as “Gentiles in the flesh” until led to a believing IN faith and repentance. (God’s plan from the foundation of the world, “was that His People ultimately be gifted with a circumcised heart.”) Physical circumcision was a forerunner to the genuine circumcision of heart.

      (Eph 2:13-16; “But now in Christ Jesus you who used to be far away have been BROUGHT near by the blood of Christ. For He is our peace, the One who MADE both groups into ONE and who destroyed the middle wall of partition, the hostility, when He nullified in HIS FLESH the law of commandments in DECREES. He did this to create in Himself ONE NEW MAN OUT OF TWO thus making peace, and to reconcile them both in ONE BODY to God through the cross, by which the hostility has been killed.”) Ethnicity is nothing to Believers IN.

      Through the new “gifted birth anew” is the spirit of love for God, neighbor and enemy. By God living in us, “we become harmless as doves and wise as serpents.” (Matt 10:16-17; “I am sending you out like sheep surrounded by wolves, so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves. Beware of people, because they will hand you over to councils and flog you in their synagogues.)

      Christians are AS ONE in Jesus. He MADE US ONE. Commandments in decrees have to do with official orders, legislation etc.

      (Eph 2:17-22; “Jesus came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near, so that through Him we both “Israelite and Gentile” 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.”)

       We followers of Jesus think of our physical bodies as “temples of Christ’s spirit.” Cornelius the gentile was considered as being far off until his miraculous conversion.. (see Acts 10:) Gentiles were primarily far off from the ways of God, “in their manner of living.” While Israelites were considered near because, “primarily, they believed God created all things, thus living in closer proximity to God’s commandments.” Israelites and gentiles were high on ethnicity, racial bias was common. Israelites considered non-Israelites foreigners. (Because of Jesus’ deeds, Christians are BUILT ON the foundation of the prophets, apostles with Him the cornerstone; “not Peter not an organization calling it’s self church.) With these things in mind, what must Believers IN do and practice?

  Allow Jesus’ teaching through Peter.

       (1 Peter 2:1-3; “So, get rid of all evil and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander. And yearn like newborn infants for pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up to salvation, (3) if you have experienced the Lord’s kindness.”) That little word IF AGAIN!

      Consider, to whom the New Covenant is given? To those who have experienced the Lord’s kindness; those “ born again” “born from above” “fathered.” The gifted from above people who hear the truth. (We’re saved when we are spiritually led to grow in grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to the end.) Yielding to the Way of God is a born anew experience.

      (1 Peter 2:4-6; “So AS you come to Him, “Jesus” a living stone rejected by men but chosen and priceless in God “the Father’s” sight, you yourselves, as living stones, are BUILT UP AS a spiritual house “temple” to be a holy priesthood and to offer spiritual sacrifices that are acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. (6) 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.”) HIM? The Old and New Testament uses ‘personify’ the stone as the King, the Messiah whom God will establish in Jerusalem.” MAY Jesus’ faith in us, make us know that we are also “living stones.” KEY words, throughout the New Covenant is, “believe IN Him.” Unbelievers cannot see His value.

      (1 Peter 2:7-8; “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.”)

     May we have mercy and show kindness to UNBELIEVERS, knowing we each were gifted with His spirit, making us believers IN. (Except that each Believer “experiences the Lord’s kindness, we would each be unbelievers.) (re-study Eph 2:) WHAT causes the stumbling? The spirit of disobedience!

The Way 2, revealed to Moses, prophets and apostles, chapter 2

October 6th, 2017

9/6/17, God’s 7th month, Tishrei 16, 5778.( until sunset) To 6,420 in resident churches; individuals God is making temples of His Holy Spirit.

       Few Christians are taught “they are spiritual Israelites regardless of their ancestry. (Few are taught the significance of the Lord God having Israelites put blood over their doors “to be saved, “from the death angel’s passing over” AND Jesus shedding His blood for the remission of the world’s sins.) Calling attention to the significance of Jesus’ blood sacrifice, “the Lord God set aside two days after Passover; (the 15th and 22nd day of His first month) and the days between foreshadowing “putting sin out.“ Israelites were to put that which puffs up ’leavening’ from their dwellings, “foreshadowing putting away sin.” Jacob’s descendents ’Israel’ was delivered from Egypt on the exact very day as promised Abraham. (Deliverance from Egypt is likened to modern day spiritual Israelites’ ‘Christians’ being delivered from sin.) As such, God’s Sabbaths ’weekly and annual’ are set aside for our good and are “perpetual.” Putting leavening out reminded the people to put away that which puffs up, ‘sin.’

     Judaism and most people using Jesus’ name in worship know Passover as the day Jesus shed His blood for the remission of sin. Though fleshly organized religions have instituted paganism associating Jesus’ resurrection with the fertility goddess and sun worship, “setting aside good Friday and Easter sunrise worship.” The point? Looking back, we recognize, “Jesus’ death partially fulfilled what that first Passover on record foreshadowed.” The two annual Sabbaths associated with Passover are also perpetual; “will always be kept to remember the importance of repentance.”

     Likewise the third annual Sabbath ‘Pentecost’ was partially fulfilled on that first Pentecost after Jesus’ ascension. Pentecost is the birthday of God’s new covenant church and is a perpetual Sabbath. Jesus reveals more fulfillment through His prophet Joel. Seeing the significance of these three annual Sabbaths should cause serious thinking people “genuine followers of Jesus” pause, to say the least. Christians that acknowledge God’s Sabbaths are ridiculed by the status quo influenced by Satan and his followers..     

      (Lev 23:39; “‘On the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you gather in the produce of the land, you must celebrate a pilgrim festival of the Lord for seven days. On the first day is a complete rest and on the eighth day is complete rest.”.(23;41-43; “This is a perpetual statute throughout your generations; you must celebrate it in the seventh month. You must live in temporary shelters for seven days; every native citizen in Israel must live in temporary shelters, so that your future generations may know that I made the Israelites live in temporary shelters when I brought them out from the land of Egypt. I am the Lord your God.’”)

      The Feast of Tabernacles is still an individual and congregational spiritual benefit for followers of Jesus to practice. The spiritual magnification of this oracle is to be mindful that our fleshly bodies are temporary and to look forward to our permanent spiritual body. The festival is a good time to reflect and look forward to another coming deliverance for scattered Israelites and followers of Jesus. (See Isaiah 43: and 44:) Lets read a portion.    (Isa 44:21-23; “Remember these things, O Jacob, O Israel, for you are My servant. I formed you to be My servant; O Israel, I will not forget you! I remove the guilt of your rebellious deeds as if they were a cloud, the guilt of your sins as if they were a cloud. Come back to Me, for I protect you.” (23) Shout for joy, O sky, for the Lord intervenes;

shout out, you subterranean regions of the earth. O mountains, give a joyful shout; you too, O forest and all your trees! For the Lord protects Jacob; He reveals His splendor through Israel.”) The rest of chapter 44: and 45: is about the Lord revealing Himself to Cyrus, instructing him to rebuild His temple etc. (Study it; God’s characteristics are revealed.)

      After Jacob left his father in law and was returning to Isaac, his brother “Esau” was coming to meet him; being fearful of Esau, Jacob sent his wives and company ahead. During the night Jesus or an angel representative manifesting himself as a man” wrestled with Jacob. 

      (Genesis 32:26-28; Then the man said, “Let me go, for the dawn is breaking.” “I will not let you go,” Jacob replied, “unless you bless me.” The man asked him, “What is your name?” He answered, “Jacob.” (28) “No longer will your name be Jacob,” the man told him, “but Israel, because you have fought with God and with men and have prevailed.”

       (The name Israel is a common construction, using a verb with a theophoric element that usually indicates the subject of the verb. Here it means “God fights.” This name ‘Israel’ replaced the name Jacob; it’s both a promise and a call for faith. In essence, the Lord was saying that Jacob would have victory and receive the promises because God would fight for him.) Remember Jesus told His twelve apostles they would sit on twelve thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

      The above text is proof of how “followers of Jesus become spiritual Israelites, gifted with a new covenant; whereby we’re gifted with the Holy Spirit: making us at one with God.

   Peter Teaches It.

      (1Peter 1:1-2; “From Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to those temporarily residing 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!”

      Other apostles and James give similar salutations. Each mindful of Israel being scattered temporarily. Each mindful that followers of Jesus are spiritual Israelites. They knew about Jesus’ promises to return and His next deliverance of Israel prophecies.

     (1Peter 1:3-7; “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, ‘that resurrection’ is reserved in heaven for you, (5) who by God’s power are protected through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. This brings you great joy, although you may have to suffer for a short time in various trials. Such trials show the proven character of your faith, which is much more valuable than gold – gold that is tested by fire, even though it is passing away – and will bring praise and glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.”)

      No apostle ever said “when Jesus is taught in schools!” Revealed is key. To believe IN as Jesus manifest Himself to be in the holy scriptures is “by supernatural revelation.”

      (1Peter 1:8-9; “You ‘Christians’ have not seen Him, but you love Him. You do not see Him now but you believe in Him, and so you rejoice with an indescribable and glorious joy, because you are attaining the goal of your faith – the salvation of your souls - being.” (It’s a particular gifted believing IN Jesus’ truth and repenting for having lived the way that seemed right that saves.)

     (1Peter 1:10-12; “Concerning this salvation, the prophets who predicted the grace that would come to you searched and investigated carefully. They probed into what person or time the Spirit of Christ within them was indicating when it testified beforehand about the sufferings appointed for Christ and His subsequent glory. (12) They ‘the prophets’ were shown that they were serving not themselves but you, in regard to the things now announced to you through those who proclaimed the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven – things angels long to catch a glimpse of.” (Remember that first Pentecost after Jesus’ ascension is when that promise to the prophets was partially fulfilled.)

      (1Peter 1:13- “Therefore, get your minds ready for action by being fully sober, and set your hope completely on the grace that will be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed.” (Note “when Jesus Christ is revealed.” Not learned in some school.)

      (1Peter 1:14-19; “Like obedient children, do not comply with the evil urges you used to follow in your ignorance, but, like the Holy One who called you, become holy yourselves in all of your conduct, for it is written, “You shall be holy, because I am holy.” (Quote from Lev 19:2) And if you address as Father the one who impartially judges according to each one’s work, live out the time of your temporary residence here in reverence. (18) You know that from your empty way of life inherited from your ancestors you were ransomed – not by perishable things like silver or gold, but by precious blood like that of an unblemished and spotless lamb, namely Christ.”)

     Every follower of Jesus was foreknown and ransomed to become a spiritual Israelite.)

     (1Peter 1:20-21; “He ‘Jesus’ was foreknown before the foundation of the world but was manifested in these last times for your sake. Through Him you now trust in God, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.”

       Above is one of many places demonstrating that Jesus was with God the Father, ‘foreknown’ before the foundation of the world and now revealed to us particular who live in these last days.

       The Feast of Tabernacles is about  Jesus’ good news message going out. About God calling out a people and making them family. With His calling “God gifts people with a desire to be obedient from a love of God perspective.” Not thinking to earn anything because of good works, but practicing His Way out of loving respect. We don’t want to lose sight of the fact that, “by grace we are saved, not of our selves.” (Many religions tend to teach two extremes. “Doing good works in expectation of gaining, or believe Jesus died for the remission of sin and be saved.” Omitting keeping His commandments and making life practice changes.” Thus many condone abominable practices. Satan believes Jesus lived and died.

      It’s good news for us to hear that many of you subscribers are machine copying these studies, using them in group discussion and bible study. Such practices are pleasing to God. This freedom we have in Christ Jesus is because of His gifting His faith to us. “Faith, precious tried an proven is gifted.” (By Jesus’ faith in us we know that we can not be indoctrinated or deceived.) Many small called out groups, ‘in resident churches’ making little waves, is better than one large worldly group making big waves. Jesus’ good news must go to the ends of the world and we know He is in charge. Unless God the Father shortens the time; we know how His planned conclusion “His final good news going out” will be by two set aside witnesses. Study Revelations 11: and believe.

The Way 2, revealed to Moses, prophets and apostles, chapter 1

October 5th, 2017

9/5/17, God’s 7th month, Tishrei 15, 5778. (until sunset) To 6,374 in resident churches; individuals God is making temples of His Holy Spirit.

     Heavenly Father: forgive our un-beliefs. Thank You for mercy extended to this unbelieving world. Thank You for calling, opening our understanding and gifting us with eternal life. Please extend mercy by cutting Satan’ dominance short. We’re thankful for the privilege of asking in Jesus’ holy name. AMEN.

The Feast of Tabernacles is the sixth of seven annual Sabbaths, foreshadowing Jesus’ return with His resurrected Saints, binding Satan, bringing peace and righteous judgment. A Time to celebrate God’s goodness in providing and His awesome planning. Jesus celebrated this feast and all will during His millennial rule.

We explored Proverbs 8: in a previous study, discovering that Jesus spoke to us through Solomon. Jesus telling us in fact He was God the Father’s delight an instrument in Creation. Additionally, Jesus revealed to and had His apostles write; revealing the same to Believers IN - for our understanding.

Modern professing Christians in our age attempt to believe “evolve with popular opinions” with the majority who teach evolution, believing it possible that mankind can fix the likes of global warming and in fact think they can gain knowledge without God. Satan “the god of this world” has led people to think of themselves as deity, “god’s to themselves” thus, no need to believe IN the God of Creation. Institutions of so called higher education don’t believe in the authenticity of the God breathed Holy Scriptures, thus the holy book is ignored and thought of as a book of myths.

Regarding evolution, think of the makeup of this earth’s core of molten rock, the ocean’s depth and sea levels maintenance. Consider the moon’s effect on sea level, the precise revolving and timing of God’s solar system. Then restudy Proverbs 8: John 1:1-5 and Colossians 1:15-20. Jesus said it and we Christians believe, “You cannot serve God and money.” (A person cannot believe in global warming as a doom’s day condition mankind can control, and evolution of God’s heavenly bodies and this modern theorist: at the same time believe in the God of Israel.) For the most part unbelievers agree among themselves, “that the god they believe IN, isn’t the God of Israel.” People who believe these evolution theorists do not believe IN our Creator God!

(Luke 16:10-14; “The one who is faithful in a very little is also faithful in much, and the one who is dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much. If then you haven’t been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will entrust you with the true riches? And if you haven’t been trustworthy with someone else’s property, who will give you your own. No servant can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.”)

(True riches is knowledge of God’s Word and believing IN Jesus’ deeds. This world of evolutionary thinkers are devoted to its demonic theories, despises God’s Way and people adhering to His Way.)

(Luke 16:14-15; “The Pharisees (who loved money) heard all this and ridiculed Jesus. But Jesus said to them, “You are the ones who justify yourselves in men’s eyes, but God knows your hearts. For what is highly prized among men is utterly detestable in God’s sight.”)

When Jesus speaks of, “love of money” it goes without saying that He also means, loving prestige, status and control over other people!

God’s grace and mercy is extended to the whole world, allowing all to go the way that seems right to themselves. However, individuals living the way that seems right to themselves are a part cause of the division and chaos that plays into Satan’s deceptive purposes. Deciding for self, from the foundation of our inherited fleshly intellect is not parallel with God’s will and purpose: goes against God’s Way of faith living. HOW so? We all were born inheriting Adam’s self serving nature that must be changed.! Our need?

We need to have two major obstacles removed. (1) Our old inherited nature needs to be changed to one likened to Jesus’ “we need spiritual re-creation.” (2) Satan’s demonic deceptions need to be exposed and Jesus’ LIGHT shined on us. (Our Creator has the solution and His Way will be carried out in spite of Satan leading mankind’s efforts.) God’s corrective measures by design and plan are on the horizon. HOW? God’s Kingdom is coming and Satan will be bound.! TRUTH WILL cover this earth as water the ocean. Before that we need to remember, Jesus told of terrible plagues; prophesied to come before His return. (Study Matthew 24:) EVERY Believer’s prayer should be that God extend mercy and shorten this age of Satan dominating rule.

Our Creator’s ultimate purpose is to have unity among His people, now and particularly in His millennial kingdom. Satan’s purpose is to divide, play people’s self serving nature against one another, cause infightings and war. (We need to consider the divisionary history of people using Jesus’ name, how they have divided and that result.)

God’s spirit led called out believers IN Jesus in the apostolic era, they were spirit led to respect, honored and keep times God said were holy to Him. (Satan’s demonically led people were about the business of organizing estrangements from Judaism’s and Christians keeping times that foreshadowed God’s planning.) The seventh day Sabbath, foreshadowing God’s rest from the pulls of our inherited nature and Satan’s influences; For example. Thus, modern Christianity using Jesus’ name are divided. Jesus’ apostle Paul addresses the nature change Christians are gifted with in his letters to the Saints.

(Colossians 1:1- 4; “From Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, and Timothy our brother, “To the Saints, the faithful brothers and sisters in Christ, at Colossae.” Grace and peace to you from God our Father! (3) We always give thanks to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, since we heard about your faith in Christ Jesus and the love that you have for all the Saints.”)

These spirit led Saints heard the prophetic words about Jesus’ coming, His prophesied deeds and Jesus’ fulfilling, by sacrificing Himself for the sins of the world and were spirit led to believe IN Jesus’ deeds. Loving one another is the number one fruit “result” of God’s spirit in mankind. Allow Jesus’ words through the Apostle John on this subject..

(1 John 4:20-5:4; “If anyone says “I love God” and yet hates his fellow Christian, he is a liar, because the one who does not love his fellow Christian whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen. (21) And the commandment we have from Him is this: “that the one who loves God should love his fellow Christian too.” (5:1) Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has been fathered by God, and everyone who loves the Father loves the child fathered by Him. (5:2) By this we know that we love the children of God: whenever we love God and obey His commandments. For this is the love of God: that we keep His commandments. And His commandments do not weigh us down, because everyone who has been fathered by God conquers “overcomes” the world.”)

(The imputation of God’s spirit to the mind is a fathering.!) His gifted spirit is required to be a child of God.! That fathering produces a gifted desire to “Love His Way and Hate Evil.” Thus, Christians are gifted and led to have faith in: believe IN Jesus. There is only ONE WAY to demonstrate faith in Jesus Christ: “keep His commandments.” People fathered by, begotten by God, are spirit led to LOVE HIS WAY. Commanded to examine ourselves in HIS LIGHT. (Ask yourself: “what is there about God’s commandments I do NOT like.?” Which of His commands, when kept, would do me harm.?

(Col 1:5-8; “Your faith and love have arisen from the hope laid up for you in heaven, which you have heard about in the message of truth, “the gospel that has come to you.” Just as in the entire world, “this gospel is bearing fruit and growing, so it has also been bearing fruit and growing among you from the first day you heard it and understood the grace of God in truth.” You learned the gospel from Epaphras, our dear fellow slave – a faithful minister of Christ on our behalf, who also told us of your love in the Spirit.”)

The message of truth revealed, is each individual’s hope for themselves and the world! We hope the whole world will soon believe IN and know the love of God.

Christians are given the grace to Believe IN now. (The big SEPERATION between Believers and unbelievers IS: “Believers IN are spirit led to recognize truth, while unbelievers aren’t gifted to grasp the fact that ‘ONLY through believing IN Jesus’ Words’ can the scriptures be OPENED to their understanding.”!)

(Col 1:1:9- 14; “For this reason we also, from the day we heard about you, have not ceased praying for you and asking God to FILL YOU with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and UNDERSTANDING, (10) so that you may live worthily of the Lord and please Him in all respects – bearing fruit in every good deed, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to His glorious might for the display of all patience and steadfastness, joyfully giving thanks to the Father who has QUALIFIED you to share in the Saints’ inheritance in the light. He DELIVERED us from the power of darkness and TRANSFERED us to the kingdom of the Son He loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.”)

We need His gifted spiritual understanding in order to live worthily. We need to patiently wait on revealed understanding as we study, meditate and seek His Way. We need to come out from among the world. Remembering Jesus’ Words, “in the world but not of the world.” God qualifies us to share in His promises given to Abraham and his descendents.

Worldly religions teach a doctrine of “self qualifying.” (That you may be saved at a time of your choosing.) Paul and all who know God, teach that God DELIVERS, from darkness and TRANSFERS Christians into the Kingdom of Jesus.

(Col 1:15-16; “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 – all things, whether visible or invisible, whether thrones or dominions, whether principalities or powers – all things were created through Him and for Him.”)

(Review Proverbs 8: and John 1:1-5, to know that Paul is in complete agreement with John on the subject of “who is Jesus.” Both were spirit led to understand and pen these words for Christian understanding. Jesus reveals that He is the firstborn of all creation. “Thus Jesus was created by God the Father in the Father’s image.” (Jesus created the angelic beings, including Lucifer.!)

(Col 1:17-18; “JESUS Himself is before all things and all things are held together in Him. (Held together - sustained.! Thus sun and the planetary movements are sustained by Jesus.!) (18) He is the head of the body, the church, as well as the beginning, the firstborn from among the dead, so that He Himself may become first in all things.”)

(Jesus is the leader, He leads His church, “the assembly of Believers IN Himself.”) Jesus is the FIRST to be RESURRECTED from physical life to SPIRITUAL Life.!

(2 Kings 1: & 2: speaking of Elijah being taken up to heaven in a whirlwind, “is a physical transfer to another place.”)

(Col 1:19-20; “For God “the Father” was pleased to have all His fullness dwell in the Son and through Him to reconcile all things to Himself by making peace through the blood of His cross – through Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven.”) )) When Satan is bound, false religions disbanded and the knowledge of God is worldwide; then the world will know the unity, Believers IN are gifted with today.

The Way; revealed to Moses, prophets and apostles, chapter 19

October 4th, 2017

10/4/17, God’s seventh month, Tishrei 14, 5778. Until sunset. To 6,375 in resident churches of God; individuals being made temples of His Holy Spirit.

The sixth of seven annual Sabbaths begins at sunset today.

Heavenly Father: gift many the realization that Satan has this whole world deceived. Gift many to realize that only through You, is the gift of turning from the way that seems right to the natural mind, to Your truth. Bless each called out individual according to Your loving kindness is our request in Jesus’ holy name. AMEN

May we be led to understand; “The Church of God” is built on the foundations of Jesus’ prophets, apostles and Jesus Himself the chief cornerstone. God the Father’s calling out a people to Believe IN Jesus has it’s foundation in Abraham, “who by promise and gifted faith, “believed IN God.” God’s promises to and through Abraham’ descendents include spiritual Israelites - Christians, “in this age since Jesus’ ascension.” For today’s Believers IN - Paul shares; (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 “gifted Believers INare one in Christ Jesus. And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to the promise.”)

We need to understand that followers of Jesus, “Christians” are spiritual Israelites. (The word Israel, means “God fights.”) Understanding our Christian roots go back to, Abraham and particularly; “Our Lord changing Jacob’s name to Israel.” Israel being a people God fights for as are Spiritual Israelites.“ Thus, “if you belong to Christ, you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to the promise.”

There is no God, but Abraham’s, Isaac’s, Jacob’s, Moses’. Joshua’s, Samuel’s, others He has and is calling. Jesus called His apostles and miraculously calls individuals to be His followers today. Every other god is imaginary.

The religious of the world at large, prefers following THEIR imagined gods. Gods that manifest themselves as angels of light, “gods of various religious persuasions.” A divided god that condones denominations making merchandise of people. Divided gods that doesn’t accept our Creator as being absolutes!

(God’s New Covenant is not with “worldly religions at large.” God’s New Covenant is NOT with the many religious denominations that call themselves Christians. His New Covenant is WITH those who by promise, “He calls and leads to follow Jesus.” People called to obey and mimic Jesus in worship.” Jesus that’s manifested in the holy scriptures. Jesus clearly identifies the difference in those His Father gives Him and the religious at large.

(John 17:9-16; “I ‘Jesus’ pray for them: I pray NOT for the world, but for them which You have given Me; for they are Yours. And all Mine are Yours, and Yours are Mine; and I am glorified in them. (11) And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world and I come to You. Holy Father, keep through Your own name those whom You have given Me, that they may BE ONE , as we are. While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Your name: those that You gave Me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled. (13) And now come I to You; and these things I SPEAK in the world, that they might have My joy fulfilled in themselves. I have given them Your Word; and the world has HATED them, because they are NOT of the world, even as I am not of the world. I pray not that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil. (16) They are NOT of the world, even as I am not of the world.”)

JESUS is not praying for the various divided denominations that use His name! This world’s divided Christianity that follow the old traditions of Baal.

The God of Noah, Abraham and Jacob, whose name God changed to Israel is the only Creator. But Satan has put forth many gods; “he is the author of confusion, division and the god of this age, “world.” (Additionally, Satan has camouflaged the God of Israel, “Jesus, the Christ,” but NOT without Jesus’ knowledge and forewarning us.)

(Matt 24:4-4; Jesus answered, saying to them, “Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in My name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.”)

Remember Jesus’ parable about the broad way? Truly we must know, “it’s the many divided groups practicing evolving traditions, that Satan has in his clutches. Deceived professing Christians that practice the traditions of Baal, while ignoring the traditions Jesus’ apostles practiced and handed down us.

SO, we conclude; “the professing Christian world at large does not know the God of Israel, His Ways, nor with whom His New Covenant is made.” People have an inherited built in self serving agenda that develops their way of life and beliefs. That internal agenda has it’s foundation in many demonic lies. The world is confused about the things they accept as truth and things they accept as lies.

When God’s people, “the Israelites” turned to other gods after having made a covenant with Him, He referred to them as spiritual adulterers. Likened to people breaking their marriage covenant. Jesus’ apostles, Peter, Paul, John, Jude and James, witnessed the apostate that began to shape the thinking of people who had previously professed belief in the Lord God. The pleasures of sin , “a love for Satan’s worldly system of things began to hinder true worship.” (JAMES wrote as follows: (“You adulterers and adulteresses, know you not that the friendship of the world is ENMITY with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.” James 4;1-4)

From fleshly logic, it seems that people would think that professing Christians would investigate the traditions they practice. But Jesus told us why they do not. Let’s review it again.

(Luke 6:46-49; “Why call you Me, Lord, Lord, and DO NOT the things which I say? Whosoever comes to Me, and hears “understands” My sayings, and DOES them, I will show you to whom he is like: He is like a man which built an house, and dug deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.”)

Now, the New Covenant is with those “born from above.” “Those gifted with a re-birth” “people transformed from their old inherited nature” “people whose outlook God changes by miraculously imputing His spirit to the mind.” His Apostle Paul explained at Romans 8: let’s review again.

(Romans 8:3-10; “For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: That the righteousness of the law might be FULFILLED in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. (5) For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is LIFE and peace. (7) Because the carnal ‘inherited’ mind is ENMITY against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. (8) So then, they that are in the flesh CANNOT please God. But you ‘gifted to be Believers IN people’ are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, IF so be that the Spirit of God DWELL IN YOU. Now if any man HAVE NOT the Spirit of Christ, HE IS NONE OF HIS. (10) And if Christ BE IN YOU, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is LIFE because of ‘Jesus’’ righteousness.”)

THE GIFT OF IMMORTALITY is only God‘s to give, “to be born from above is to be fathered by God.” The righteousness of God’s law is fulfilled in people gifted with His spirit because the love of God is spread abroad in their being. Such individuals are led to have no confidence in the flesh and look to God’s Way, concerning all things.

(Therefore, since we have been declared righteous by “Jesus” faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in the hope of God’s glory. Not only this, but we also rejoice in sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance, character, and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us. (6) For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. (For rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person perhaps someone might possibly dare to die.) But God demonstrates His own love for us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, because we have now been declared righteous by His blood, we will be saved through Him from God’s wrath. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, how much more, since we have been reconciled, will we be saved by His life?”

Not only this, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received this reconciliation. (12) So then, just as sin entered the world through one man and death through sin, and so death spread to all people because all sinned – for before the law was given, sin was in the world, but there is no accounting for sin when there is no law. Yet death reigned from Adam until Moses even over those who did not sin in the same way that Adam (who is a type of the coming one) transgressed. But the gracious gift is not like the transgression. For if the many died through the transgression of the one man, “Adam” how much more did the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the One man Jesus Christ multiply to the many! And the gift is not like the one who sinned. For judgment, resulting from the one transgression, led to condemnation, but the gracious gift from the many failures led to justification. For if, by the transgression of the one man, death reigned through the one, how much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one, Jesus Christ!

(18) Consequently, just as condemnation for all people came through one transgression, so too through the one righteous act came righteousness leading to “eternal” life for all people. For just as through the disobedience of the one man many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of One man “Jesus” many will be made righteous. Now the law came in so that the transgression may increase, but where sin increased, grace multiplied all the more, so that just as sin reigned in death, so also grace will reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.)

Who is gifted with the mind to look around? Observe individuals living according to the traditions of Baal. Study Jeremiah chapters 9 & 10 and ask the question, “has this world’s religions progressed toward the traditions of Baal.

The Way; revealed to Moses, prophets and apostles, chapter 18

October 3rd, 2017

 10/3/17 God’s seventh month, Tishrei 13, 5778. To 6,360 in resident churches of God; individuals being made temples of His Holy Spirit.

      Heavenly Father: please give many the mind to understand Your truth, flee evil, look to Your Word for what‘s right, wrong, good and evil. We ask in the name of Jesus. Amen.

      Tomorrow at sunset is the eve of The Feast of Tabernacles. The week long celebration looks forward to Jesus’ return, peace on earth, righteous judgment and prosperity. Pray that God our Father choose to shorten the time for the sake of His Saints. The eighth day “the Last Great Day” will culminate this year’s annual Sabbaths.    

      Satan is the source of peoples self serving, “practicing life my way” thinking. Such thinking ignores a yielding to God’s Way and is in fact idolatry. We each inherited an idolatrous mentality from birth. When it isn’t recognized, it takes people down a self serving divisionary life path, “each esteeming their ideas superior, regarding right, wrong, good and evil. Thus, the many religions, theories that causes disagreements, wars and infighting. Jesus brother, James teaches this in his chapter 4.

     (James 4:1-4; “From where come wars and fighting among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members? You lust, and have not: you kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: you fight and war, yet you have not, because you ask not. You ask, and receive not, because you ask amiss, that you may consume it upon your lusts. You adulterers and adulteresses, know you not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.”)

     “Because you ask not?” Because we don’t ask within the frame work of God’s Way. When we pray from within our fleshly desire we’re likely asking amiss. We need to know Jesus’ message regarding obedience “so as not to be consuming it upon our lust.” We read about the Lord telling His prophet not to pray for certain situations in our last study. There is a point in which God turns His back when people aren’t living within His will. Human logic can not take us to the source of truth; rather it takes us to a, “it seems to ME mentality.” The way fleshly people rationalize things “takes root and becomes idolatry.” God’s Word teaches, “our self serving nature must be turned from” so we can yield to His Truth Way. Human logic does lead people to be religious from within their comfort zone. Doesn’t take people in the direction of spiritual truth. Human logic leads our populations in the direction of thinking, “what is true for you may not be true for me.” Such thinking is from the author of confusion, “the god of this world” Satan.

      When we are led to believe IN we know our Creator is TRUTH. Godly love and truth define Jesus. (Moses wrote; “He is the Rock, His work is perfect: for all His Ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is He.” Deuteronomy 32:4.) (Jesus said; “For every one that does evil, hates the light, neither comes to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that does truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought “made careful” in God.” John 3:20-21) The foundation of our deeds must be made manifested to us; that is, we must be led to understand that our inherited nature is self serving.

     NOW, through various fleshly religions, people grow even more self serving, more self righteous from within their inherited, “it seems to ME mentality.” Our natural, “inherited from Adam nature” desires the praise of people. Desires our good self serving deeds to be recognized by our peers. The ways of Satan are many and  each take people down a crooked divisionary path. (Jesus said it; “Enter you in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leads to destruction, and many go that way: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leads unto LIFE, and few there be that find it.” Matthew 7:13-14)

      Satan would have folks think like most modest professing Christian; “believe Jesus is and be saved.” The result of such thinking is, “believe Jesus lived and do what seems right to yourselves.” That amounts to “believe Jesus lived while practicing traditions of man.” Worldly religions including people professing Jesus, “while catering to evolutionary concepts.” “These do not believe IN Jesus.” Luke recorded Jesus’ words.

      (Luke 6:46-49; “Why call you Me, Lord, Lord, and DO NOT the things which I say? Whosoever comes to Me, and hears “understands” My sayings, and does them, I will show you to whom he is like: He is like a man which built an house, and dug deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock. But he that hears “understands,” and does not, is like a man that, “without a foundation” built his house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.”) Many hear and read Jesus’ words: without prayerfully meditating on their meaning. So the many don’t understand.

      Satan’s way is designed to appeal to people’s self serving nature, our inherited from Adam “get nature.” Satan’s way gives latitude to believe what appeals and what’s traditionally popular. People do not want to comprehend that Satan palms himself off as an, “angel of light. (Worldly devised from people agenda doctrines are inspired by Satan, contain some and perhaps much truth, but causing people to miss the mark. THE argument goes, “no one is perfect, all are sinners;” from there professing Christians are conditioned to condone many things that are an abomination to our Creator God.

      FACT, when a person is conditioned to believe just ONE demonic lies, fleshly logic leads to misunderstanding many things, in order to support his lie. The first example that should comes to mind is the world wide false demonic lie about the immortality of the soul. We are spiritually led to repeat and review Satan’s number one lie often, because “every worldly religion accepts and teaches some form of it. (That lie is, “people are born to live forever someplace, every person is born with an internal immortal component called a soul, that lives forever after physical death. (Study Genesis 3:)

      FACT, Jesus and His apostles taught, “immortality is a gift to believers IN followers. People called to be obedient to God’s Way. Jesus inspired His apostle Paul to explain.

      (Romans 6:20-23; “For when you were the servants of sin, you were free from righteousness. What fruit had you then in those things whereof you are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death. But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, you have your fruit unto holiness, and the end EVERLASTING life. For the wages of sin is DEATH; but the GIFT of God is eternal LIFE through Jesus Christ our Lord.”) It’s impossible to believe this verse and also believe you have an immortal soul.  (See Revelations 21:8, and pray for understand regarding a second death.)

      Rather than all people being born immortal, “all people are born servants of sin - servants of lawlessness.” The meaning of righteousness is opposite that of selfishness. At birth, our inherited nature is selfish: “born wanting to please only self!” When God the Father calls and gifts us with a desire to know Him, “we are led to believe IN.” We then become ashamed of our inherited nature and want to be rid of it. When we follow the gifted desire to turn from our inherited from Adam nature to Jesus’ nature, “that’s repentance.” Our inherited nature’s outlook, is what every Believer IN Jesus is led to turn from, while recognizing our need for God’s help through our Shepherd, “Jesus Christ.” Understand the end result of being a servant of sin is DEATH. When led to be a servant of God, through Jesus, our fruit, “wages” has the end, EVERLASTING LIFE.

      Satan knows the holy scriptures. Remember when Jesus was being tempted by the devil “he quoted scripture from the Psalms.” Likewise professing Christian’s from every persuasion, every denomination, quote from the scriptures. The difference is the twisting to fit agendas of denominations. HOW could that be and why? is what we all should be asking? (It’s natural from human fleshly logic to depend on our intellect for discernment.) “Remember; when just ONE of Satan’s lies is believed.”

       Satan inspired divisions in people groups is evident when we look at this world’s accepted calendars. Back before Abraham each country had made imaginary gods and worshiped them “by setting aside times.” Denoting imaginary births of imaginary gods. Most set their year beginning around the winter equinox, “the shortest day.” Sun worshipers imagined the sun’s going away as days shortened and thought their worshiping it brought it back. As the apostate Jesus’ brother Jude wrote about took hold among organized religions, “namely Catholicism” they changed God’s calendar to fit their agenda to bringing pagans aboard. God had gave His people “the Israelites” His calendar that reminded them that He was Creator, setting aside times foreshadowing His future plans etc. God told His people through Moses, “not to learn or practice the ways of the ungodly people surrounding them.” However within about three hundred years after Jesus’ ascension, Catholicism brought pagan cultures into their idea of Christianity. This by naming days of the week for pagan gods. They attempted to changed God’s Sabbath to the first day of the week to cause division with Judaism and genuine followers of Jesus. That organization of people grew, becoming the so called, “holy Roman empire.” Jesus said, “Watch out that no one misleads you. Many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am He,’ and they will mislead many.” Mark 13:5-6)

      The growth of that Roman empire was enormously successful with much blood shed, war and forced conversions to their ideas.

       God’s seventh day weekly Sabbath pictures, being at rest from fleshly works, foreshadows His millennial rule on earth and the binding of Satan, “the Author of confusion” God’s annual Sabbaths foreshadow His salvation planning. They divide three seasons. (First season is Passover in God’s first month including the feast of Unleavened Bread with two annual Sabbaths. The season‘s theme is Believing in Jesus’ deeds and turning from sin, “overcoming our lawlessness nature.” (Second season is Pentecost, God’s third annual Sabbath. “The prophetic mystery of God’s spirit living in people shared. The birthday of Jesus’ New Covenant Church. Practicing living with the knowledge of our belonging to God. (Third season has Four annual Sabbaths packed in God’s seventh month. Trumpets, Atonement, the Feast of Tabernacles and The last Great Day. The season foreshadows Jesus triumphant return, the resurrection, our being made literally at one with Jesus, Satan bound, peace on earth, judgment and God the Father coming down, bringing New Jerusalem.

      Likened to Jesus’ followers being built on the foundation of His prophets, apostles and Himself the chief corner stone. New Jerusalem has twelve gates named for the twelve tribes of Israel and twelve foundations named for the twelve apostles of The Lamb. How awesome God’s Way and what an abomination the ways of sinful people.
