(Sharing God’s View with 7,761 in resident churches: people being made temples of God’s spirit,)

11/28/17; God’s 9th month, Kislev 10, 5778 until sunset.

      From a human logic point of view; “there must be a methodology by which one can be saved.” Such logic is what worldly religions use as a foundation for their evangelism. Motivating people to “give their heart to the Lord” is the theme used in their campaigns. This too is part of the apostasy Jude saw on the horizon when he wrote, “Jude.” Consider the fact that Satan knows God the Father created him though God the Son, “Jesus.” Satan knows why Jesus came in the flesh; that his time is short and his future demise.

      After Jesus’ disciples returning form their missionary assignment and was telling Jesus’ about their power over demons “when using His name” Jesus said: “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.” Luke 10:18. (We need to know deceiver, lying Satan can appear in visible form, uses individuals and people groups to deceive and persecute God’s people. (Babylonians and Assyrians have been used to partner with Satan and persecute God’s people. The Word “Babylon” means confusion.) Jesus reveals this and the demise of Satan and his helper’s through His prophet Isaiah.

       (Isaiah 14:12-14; “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! (13) 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!”

     (Isa 14:15-17; “But you 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?”’

     (Isa 14:18-21; “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 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. 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.”

     (Isa 14:22-23; “I will rise up against them,” says the Lord who commands armies. “I will blot out all remembrance of Babylon and destroy all her people, including the offspring she produces,” says the Lord. “I will turn her iinto a place that is overrun with wild animals and covered with pools of stagnant water. I will get rid of her, just as one sweeps away dirt with a broom” says the Lord who commands armies.

      (Isa 14:24-27; “The Lord who commands armies makes this solemn vow: “Be sure of this: Just as I have intended, so it will be; just as I have planned, it will happen. I will break Assyria in My land, I will trample them underfoot on My hills. Their yoke will be removed from My people, the burden will be lifted from their shoulders. This is the plan I have devised for the whole earth; My hand is ready to strike all the nations.” Indeed, the Lord who commands armies has a plan, and who can possibly frustrate it? His hand is ready to strike, and who can possibly stop it?)

      Jesus’ apostle Paul was given revelations about Satan’s function.

      (Ephesians 2:1-3; And although you ‘followers of Jesus’ 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 of7 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..”) Note: Paul includes himself when he was a Pharisee. To the Corinthians and we Believers Paul reveals. 

     (2Cor 4:2-6; “But we ‘followers of Jesus’ have rejected shameful hidden deeds, not behaving with deceptiveness or distorting the word of God, but by open proclamation of the truth we commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience before God. (3) But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled only to those who are perishing, among whom the god of this age has blinded the minds of those who do not believe so they would not see the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God. For we do not proclaim ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your slaves for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said “Let light shine out of darkness,” is the one who shined in our hearts to give us the light of the glorious knowledge of God in the face of Christ.”)

      Remember; Jesus revealed through Isaiah that all is preplanned.

      (Rev 20:7-10; “Now when the thousand years are finished, Satan will be released from his prison (Shoel - the pit - see Isaiah) and will go out to deceive the nations at the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to bring them together for the battle. They are as numerous as the grains of sand in the sea. They went up on the broad plain of the earth and encircled the camp of the Saints and the beloved city, but fire came down from heaven and devoured them completely. And the devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet are too, and they will be tormented there day and night forever and ever.”

      (Rev 20:11-15; “Then I saw a large white throne and the one who was seated on it; the earth and the heaven fled from His presence, and no place was found for them. And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne. Then books were opened, and another book was opened – the book of life. So the dead were judged by what was written in the books, according to their deeds. The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and Death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each one was judged according to his deeds. Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death – the lake of fire. (15) If anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, that person was thrown into the lake of fire.”) Jesus revealed the same to His prophet “Malachi” and he wrote.

      (Mal 4:1 (3:19) “For indeed the day is coming, burning like a furnace, and all the arrogant evildoers will be chaff. The coming day will burn them up,” says the Lord who rules over all. “It will not leave even a root or branch. But for you who respect My name, the sun of vindication will rise with healing wings, and you will skip about like calves released from the stall. You will trample on the wicked, for they will be like ashes under the soles of your feet on the day which I am preparing,” says the Lord who rules over all.”) John the Baptist revealed the same when speaking of Jesus.

      (Matthew 3:11-12; “I baptize you with water, for repentance, but the One coming after me is more powerful than I am – I am not worthy to carry His sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. (12) His winnowing fork is in His hand, and He will clean out His threshing floor and will gather His wheat into the storehouse, but the chaff he will burn up with inextinguishable fire.”) Speaking to unbelievers “people loving this world’s system of things:” Jesus revealed and John wrote.

      (John  8:44-47; You people are from your father the devil, and you want to do what your father desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not uphold the truth, because there is no truth in him. Whenever he lies, he speaks according to his own nature, because he is a liar and the father of lies. But because I am telling you the truth, you do not believe Me. Who among you can prove Me guilty of any sin? If I am telling you the truth, why don’t you believe Me? The one who belongs to God listens and responds to God’s words. You don’t listen and respond, because you don’t belong to God.”)

      Jesus’ apostle Paul, His prophets Isaiah, Jeremiah, Daniel and others prophesied about Israel’s future. All Israel will be saved. (ROMANS 11:25-27; “For I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers and sisters, so that you may not be conceited: A partial hardening has happened to Israel until the full number of the Gentiles has come in. (26) And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: “The Deliverer will come out of Zion; He will remove ungodliness from Jacob. (27) And this is My covenant with them, when I take away their sins.”) Paul is quoting from Isaiah 27:9, 59:20-21 and Jeremiah 31:33-34.)

       (Romans 6:21-23; “So what benefit did you then reap from those things that you are now ashamed of? For the end of those things is death. But now, freed from sin and enslaved to God, you have your benefit leading to sanctification, and the end is eternal life. For the payoff of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”) Jesus revealed these thing to Paul and these revelations kept him humble.

      (2 Corinthians 12:1-10; “It is necessary to go on boasting. Though it is not profitable, I will go on to visions and revelations from the Lord. I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago (whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, God knows) was caught up to the third heaven. And I know that this man (whether in the body or apart from the body I do not know, God knows) was caught up into paradise and heard things too sacred to be put into words, things that a person is not permitted to speak. On behalf of such an individual I will boast, but on my own behalf I will not boast, except about my weaknesses. For even if I wish to boast, I will not be a fool, for I would be telling the truth, but I refrain from this so that no one may regard me beyond what he sees in me or what he hears from me, even because of the extraordinary character of the revelations. Therefore, so that I would not become arrogant, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to trouble me – so that I would not become arrogant. I asked the Lord three times about this, that it would depart from me. But He said to me, “My grace is enough for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” So then, I will boast most gladly about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may reside in me. Therefore I am content with weaknesses, with insults, with troubles, with persecutions and difficulties for the sake of Christ, for whenever I am weak, then I am strong.”) May we each be gifted with the grace of believing IN and overcome to the end.

       (Remember our English dictionary identifies apostasy as, “the renunciation of a religious - political belief or allegiance: someone renouncing a belief  Jude recognized the twisting of Jesus’ words, purpose for coming in the flesh, His doctrine and future as King of Kings.

 (Sharing God’s View with 7,694 in resident churches: people being made temples of God’s spirit,)

11/26/17; God’s 9th month, Kislev 8, 5778 until sunset.

      Familiarity breeds contempt: Its a human inherited characteristic and the reason Jesus explained why “families often become enemies over beliefs.” It isn’t limited to religion, “people of differing politics spar angrily.

        (Matthew 10:34-36; “Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace but a sword. For I have come to set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law, and a man’s enemies will be the members of his household.

     (Matt 10:37-40; “Whoever loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me, and whoever loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And whoever does not take up his cross, ’life practices’ and follow Me is not worthy of Me. Whoever finds his life will lose it and whoever loses his life because of me will find it. “Whoever receives you ‘Believers IN’ receives Me, and whoever receives Me receives the One who sent Me.”) The major point to realize is, “if God isn’t opening minds, people lean to their own understanding, which is idolatry.” (Study Proverbs 3: we’re printing verses 5 - 12.)

     (Prov 3:5-12; “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding. Acknowledge Him in all your ways and He will make your paths straight.

Do not be wise in your own estimation; fear the Lord and turn away from evil. This will bring healing to your body, and refreshment to your inner self. Honor the Lord from your wealth and from the first fruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled completely and your vats will overflow with new wine. My child, do not despise discipline from the Lord and do not loathe His rebuke. For the Lord disciplines those He loves, just as a father disciplines the son in whom He delights.”)

       Nations, family and individual problems’ are caused by disobedience.

       Pentecost, meaning, “count fifty” it’s fifty days from the weekly Sabbath after Passover and during the Feast of Unleavened Bread.  Google a “Judean calendar” and purchase one or more.) It was revealed to Jesus’ apostle Paul that, “God is entrusting the tribe of Judea with His oracles.” It’s one reason Jews have been so persecuted by gentiles and the world.

       (Romans 3:1-18; “Therefore what advantage does the Jew have, or what is the value of circumcision? Actually, there are many advantages. First of all, the Jews were entrusted with the oracles of God. What then? If some, “Jews” did not believe, does their unbelief nullify the faithfulness of God? Absolutely not! Let God be proven true, and every human being shown up as a liar, just as it is written: “so that you will be justified7 in your words and will prevail when you are judged.” (Quote from Psalms 51:4) (5) But if our “we Christians” unrighteousness demonstrates the righteousness of God, what shall we say? The God who inflicts wrath is not unrighteous, is He? (I am speaking in human terms.) Absolutely not! For otherwise how could God judge the world? For if by my lie the truth of God enhances His glory, why am I still actually being judged as a sinner? And why not say, “Let us do evil so that good may come of it”? – as some who slander us allege that we say. (Their condemnation is deserved!)

     Rom 3:9-18; “What then? Are we better off? Certainly not, for we have already charged that Jews and Greeks alike are all under sin, just as it is written: “There is no one righteous, not even one, there is no one who understands, there is no one who seeks God. All have turned away, together they have become worthless; there is no one who shows kindness, not even one.” “Their throats are open graves, they deceive with their tongues, the poison of asps is under their lips.” “Their mouths are full of cursing and bitterness.” “Their feet are swift to shed blood, ruin and misery are in their paths, and the way of peace they have not known.” “There is no fear of God before their eyes.”) (Paul is using quotes from, Psalms 5:9, 36:1, 140:3. 143:2 and Isaiah 59:7-8.)

        Israelites were expecting the Messiah when Jesus was born. Jews are still expecting a Messiah “likened to Moses.” Judaism still designates God’s calendar, denoting His annual Sabbaths. (Jesus was ask about His kingdom and the mother of one ask that her two sons have leadership positions, Jesus’ response was “it isn’t mine to give.”)  (Pilate ask Jesus if He were a King, Jesus answered; “for the reason I was born.”

       (John 18:33-38; “So Pilate went back into the governor’s residence, summoned Jesus, and asked Him, “Are you the king of the Jews?” Jesus replied, “Are you saying this on your own initiative, or have others told you about Me?” Pilate answered, “I am not a Jew, am I? Your own people and your chief priests handed you over to me. What have you done?” (36) Jesus replied, “My kingdom is not from this world. If My kingdom were from this world, My servants would be fighting to keep Me from being handed over to the Jewish authorities. But as it is, My kingdom is not from here.” Then Pilate said, “So you are a king!” Jesus replied, “You say that I am a king. For this reason I was born, and for this reason I came into the world – to testify to the truth. Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to My voice.” Pilate asked, “What is truth?”)

       What’s truth? Has been an ongoing  question since Adam. God’s Word proclaims “God is truth.” Proclaiming it, “Paul’s message was about the kingdom of God.”

      (Acts 20:25-35; Paul wrote, “And now I know that none of you among whom I went around proclaiming the kingdom will see me again. Therefore I declare to you today that I am innocent of the blood of you all. For I did not hold back from announcing to you the whole purpose of God. Watch out for yourselves and for all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God that He obtained with the blood of His own Son. I know that after I am gone fierce wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock. Even from among your own group men will arise, teaching perversions of the truth to draw the disciples away after them. Therefore be alert, remembering that night and day for three years I did not stop warning each one of you with tears. And now I entrust you to God and to the message of His grace. This message is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified. I have desired no one’s silver or gold or clothing. You yourselves know that these hands of mine provided for my needs and the needs of those who were with me. By all these things, I have shown you that by working in this way we must help the weak, and remember the words of the Lord Jesus that He Himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” When Paul had said these things, he knelt down with them all and prayed.”)

        The good news from Jesus and His apostles is about His coming kingdom on earth, the resurrections; “sanctified believers” in the first resurrection and others in their own order. Jesus; nor did any apostle ever teach people to trust their own intellect or look to gentile philosophies. Rather they taught to do so is idolatry. Part of the apostate Jude saw taking place was unbelievers omitting Jesus’ resurrections doctrine in lieu of the demonic pagan philosophy “of a soul immortality.” That is, “everyone is born to live forever someplace” - “good to heaven and bad to an ever burning fire.” Let’s study Paul’s revelations about the resurrections.

       (1 Corinthians 15:12-19; “Now if Christ is being preached as raised from the dead, how can some of you say there is no resurrection of the dead? But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is futile and your faith is empty. Also, we are found to be false witnesses about God, because we have testified against God that he raised Christ from the dead, when in reality he did not raise Him, if indeed the dead are not raised. For if the dead are not raised, then not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is useless; you are still in your sins. Furthermore, those who have fallen asleep in Christ have also perished. For if only in this life we have hope in Christ, we should be pitied more than anyone.” (“Deceased unbelievers are in a state of perishing, until their own resurrection time and a later judgment; See Revelations 21:8”) 

      (15:20-28; “But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since death came through a man, “Adam” the resurrection of the dead also came through a man, “Jesus.” For just as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive. But each in his own order: Christ, the firstfruits; then when Christ comes, those who belong to Him. Then comes the end, (24) when He hands over the kingdom to God the Father, when He has brought to an end all rule and all authority and power. For He, “Jesus” must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet. The last enemy to be eliminated is death. For He, “God the Father” has put everything in subjection under His, “Jesus’” feet. But when it says “everything” has been put in subjection, it is clear that this does not include the One who put everything in subjection to Him. And when all things are subjected to Him, “God the Father” then the Son Himself will be subjected to the One, “God the Father” who subjected everything to Him, so that God may be all in all.”) (NOTE that Paul’s prophecy jumps at verse 24 to when Jesus’ millennial rule ends and New Jerusalem comes down.) 

      (15:29-34;” Otherwise, what will those do who are baptized for the dead? If the dead are not raised at all, then why are they baptized for them? Why too are we in danger every hour? Every day I am in danger of death! This is as sure as my boasting in you, which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord. If from a human point of view I fought with wild beasts at Ephesus, what did it benefit me? If the dead are not raised, let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die. Do not be deceived: “Bad company corrupts good morals.” Sober up as you should, and stop sinning! For some have no knowledge of God – I say this to your shame!” (Remember, Jesus, His apostles and many Believers have died for God’s truth about resurrections, gifted salvation and judgment.)

       (15:35-41; But someone will say, “How are the dead raised? With what kind of body will they come?” Fool! What you sow will not come to life unless it dies. And what you sow is not the body that is to be, but a bare seed – perhaps of wheat or something else. But God gives it a body just as He planned, and to each of the seeds a body of its own. All flesh is not the same: People have one flesh, animals have another, birds and fish another. And there are heavenly bodies and earthly bodies. The glory of the heavenly body is one sort and the earthly another. There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon and another glory of the stars, for star differs from star in glory.”) Allow John’s revelation regarding our spiritual bodies.

     (1John 3:2-3; “Dear friends, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet been revealed. We know that whenever it is revealed we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is. And everyone who has this hope focused on Him purifies himself, just as Jesus is pure).

      (1Cor 15:42-49; “It is the same with the resurrection of the dead. What is sown is perishable, “will decay” what is raised is imperishable. It is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body. So also it is written, “The first man, Adam, became a living person” the last Adam, ‘Jesus’ became a life-giving spirit. However, the spiritual did not come first, but the natural, and then the spiritual. The first man is from the earth, made of dust; the second man is from heaven. Like the one made of dust, so too are those made of dust, and like the One from heaven, so too those who are heavenly. And just as we have borne the image of the man of dust, let us also bear the image of the man of heaven.”

      (1Cor 15:50-55; “Now this is what I am saying, brothers and sisters: Flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. Listen, I will tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed – in a moment, in the blinking of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable and we will be changed. For this perishable body must put on the imperishable and this mortal body must put on immortality. Now when this perishable puts on the imperishable, and this mortal puts on immortality, then the saying that is written will happen, “Death has been swallowed up in victory.” “Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?” (Paul is quoting from Isaiah 25:8 and Hosea 13”14) “The flesh is mortal, but this mortal must put on immortality. (Review verse 53;For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality.”

      (15:56-58; “The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ! So then, dear brothers and sisters, be firm. Do not be moved! Always be outstanding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.”)

       Jesus’ deeds “revel Him as Recreator,” He recreated the heavens and earth, recreated physical life in Lazarus, through Peter He recreated physical life to Tabatha, recreated bread and fish feeding thousands and He will recreate each individual in their own order.

  (Sharing God’s View with 7,646 in resident churches: people being made temples of His spirit,)

11/24/17; God’s 9th month, Kislev 6, 5778 until sunset.

It’s revealed to God’s people that His purpose for making mankind in His likeness and image is to make us family, “His literal offspring - children.” Jesus revealed it and inspired His apostle Peter to give us revelations.

(1 Peter 2:1-8; “So get rid of all evil, deceit, hypocrisy, 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. So as you come to Him, a living Stone rejected by men but chosen and priceless in God’s sight, you yourselves, as living stones, are built up as a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood and to offer spiritual sacrifices that are acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.(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.” (Quote from Isaiah 28:16) So you who believe see His value, but for those who do not believe, the Stone that the builders rejected has become the Cornerstone, (denoting an obstacle to faith, something that arouses anger and rejection. “quote from Isaiah 8:14.) and a stumbling-stone and a rock to trip over. They stumble because they disobey the Word, as they were destined to do.”) “Only the called out, “born from above” aren’t destined to trip.”

As Jesus is a living Stone. So too are we who believe IN. Believers IN are a spiritual house, a holy priesthood. Our obedience makes us acceptable to God the Father through Jesus Christ.

Jesus’ apostles’ letters are TO a called out converted people. (Thus, “if we have experienced the Lord’s kindness, we are also as living Stones -Saints.” (To be built a holy priesthood.) WHY? To offer spiritual sacrifices that are acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. HOW POSSIBLE? (Only through the imputation of God’s spirit to our being!)

(1 Peter 2:9-12; “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.

(11) Dear friends, I urge you as foreigners and exiles to keep away from fleshly desires that do battle against the soul, 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.”) (No matter our nation or community: we Believers IN are foreign exiles to them as was Abraham!)

If we are believers IN His marvelous light it’s ONLY because He called us out of darkness. (a) Unbelievers are not capable of yearning for spiritual understanding. (b) Followers of Jesus are God called and chosen. (c) Growing to salvation is to experience God’s kindness. (d) Gifted to recognize our state of being; “our inherited from Adam nature.” (e) Gifted with a desire to turn to God‘s Way.” (f) Believers IN are built, “a spiritual house to offer spiritual sacrifices.” (g) Jesus is a priceless Cornerstone in God the Father‘s View and rejected by the world. (h) For unbelievers Jesus is the Stone they are destined to trip over.. (i) Believers IN are chosen to be God’s own, “a royal priesthood; a holy nation.” (j) We believe IN because of His grace and mercy; “not of our own choosing.”! (k) Believers can expect to be maligned and ostracized by established religions.) This is Jesus’ teaching, as revealed to Peter and each Believer IN. NOW BACK TO JESUS’ WORD THROUGH JOHN

(John 15:1-4; “I am the true vine and My Father is the gardener. He takes away every branch that does not bear fruit in Me. He prunes every branch that bears fruit so that it will bear more fruit. You ‘Believers IN’ are clean already because of the Word that I ’Jesus’ have spoken to you. Remain in Me and I will remain in you. Just as the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it remains in the vine, so neither can you unless you remain in Me.”)

Followers of Jesus Believe IN God as Abraham did. We are spirit led not to lean to OUR own understanding; that is, “we don’t trust your own fleshly intellect!” (Fruit NOT produced through Jesus, is what all worldly religions offer.) “Because of the Word, “believers IN Jesus are purified.” In John’s first letter to converted people he gets more to the point at verses 18-20.

(1 John 3:18-20; “Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue but in deed and truth. And by this we will know that we are of the truth and will convince our conscience in His presence, that if our conscience condemns us, that God is greater than our conscience and knows all things.”)

(John 15:5-8; “I am the vine; you are the branches. The one who remains in Me – and I in him – bears much fruit, because apart from Me you can accomplish nothing. If anyone does not remain in Me, he is thrown out like a branch, and dries up; and such branches are gathered up and thrown into the fire, and are burned up. (Look back and review Revelations 21:8?) (7) If you remain in Me and My Words remain in you, ask whatever you want, and it will be done for you. (8) My Father is honored by this, that you bear much fruit and show that you are My disciples.”) God loves His kingdom, “thus, unbelievers will be thrown out and burned up.

(John 15:9-12; “Just as the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you; remain in My love. If you obey My commandments, you will remain in My love, just as I have obeyed My Father’s commandments and remain in His love. I have told you these things so that My joy may be in you, and your joy may be complete. My commandment is this – to love one another just as I have loved you.”) “JUST AS I HAVE LOVED YOU” has been repeated several times! Jesus is the Shepherd that has given ‘laid down’ His life for we sheep. Jesus’ teaching this New commandment, does not nullify His ten commandments, “but magnifies them spiritually.”

(John 15:13-15; “No one has greater love than this – that one lays down his life for his friends. You ‘followers of Me’ are My friends if you do what I command you. I no longer call you slaves, because the slave does not understand what his master is doing. But I have called you friends, because I have revealed to you everything I heard from My Father.”) Revealed if the key word.

Hopefully we prayerfully accept and believe IN Jesus‘ truth, “NO person can understand without His revealing!” Theology schooling adds nothing to spiritual reveled comprehension! (The apostle Paul always refer to himself as Jesus’ slave.) We each should be willingly proud to be His slave, “because He loved and chose us first.”

(John 15:16-17; “You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit, fruit that remains, so that whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you. This I command you – to love one another.”)

If we believe IN God the Father and God the Son as manifested in the holy scriptures it’s because WE ARE CHOSEN: “we did not choose Him!” Jesus’ sacrificial death on our behalf, “is the love we are to have for one another.” We must be willing to die for one another if necessary. (JESUS speaks of His death as a commandment, received from His Father.) (Review John 10:18 & 14:31)

It’s not ONLY the degree or intensity of OUR love for one another that Jesus is referring to, by comparison His own death. John makes clear HOW we come to know Godly love in his first letter.

(1John 3:16-17; “We have come to know “Godly’ love by this: that Jesus laid down His life for us; thus we ought to lay down our lives for our fellow Christians. But whoever has the world’s possessions and sees his fellow Christian in need and shuts off his compassion against him, how can the love of God reside in such a person?”)

John expresses his own love while quoting Jesus’ teaching us how to love. We hope each understands the spiritual fulfillment of “God’s imputing His spirit to our minds to “make us AT ONE with Himself. If we are gifted with a desire to be AT ONE with Him; “seek to know His Ways.”

The apostasy Jude wrote about was primarily the result of Pharisee/Sadducees type Judaism and paganism infiltrating God’s called out people. They each had their personal agenda’s and spread their fleshly rational. (Rational like Cain’s, who thought God should be pleased with his sacrifice and way of thinking.) To unbelievers of every sort; “the mystery of God imputing His spirit in people of His choice, making them at one with Himself isn’t logical.” Unbelieving people spreading “what Jude called apostasy” were inserting their own ideas about right, wrong, good and evil. A miraculous opening of a person’s mind to understand the scriptures doesn’t fit fleshly minded rational. Unbelievers can’t accept that “believe IN Jesus’ and His deeds, is a “miraculous gift by grace event.”

(Luke 24:44-49; Then Jesus 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 Jesus 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. You are witnesses of these things. And look, I am sending you what My Father promised. But stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.”)

Jesus’ prophecy, “that repentance for the forgiveness of sins would be proclaimed in His name to all nations: isn’t happening today in full measure. To all nations will begin when His two witnesses miraculously proclaim it from Jerusalem (Review Rev 11:) and will continue during His millennial reign.

Jesus’ apostles were gifted to believe IN, “thus staying in Jerusalem expecting the fulfillment of Jesus’ words. Likely remembering Jesus’ words to Nicodemus, about the imputation of His spirit. (The wind blows wherever it will, you here the sound, but don’t know where it comes or goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the spirit.)

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

On that Pentecost after Jesus’ ascension, for His own purpose, God made His “likened to the wind miracle, both noisy and visible.”

(Acts 2:1-4; “Now when the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like a violent wind blowing came from heaven and filled the entire house where they were sitting. And tongues spreading out like a fire appeared to them and came to rest on each one of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit, and they began to speak in other languages as the Spirit enabled them.”) Israelites came from distant places to celebrate God’s holy Sabbath, “Pentecost.” Many of these had learned various languages.

(Acts 2:6-8; “When this sound occurred, a crowd gathered and was in confusion, because each one heard them speaking in his own language. Completely baffled, they said, “Aren’t all these who are speaking Galileans? And how is it that each one of us hears them in our own native language?”) The miracle was in the hearing and speech.

The Apostasy and commentary, chapter 9, (Sharing God’s View with 7,646 in resident churches: people being made temples of His spirit,)

11/24/17; God’s 9th month, Kislev 6, 5778 until sunset.

Pentecost, meaning, “count fifty” it’s fifty days from the weekly Sabbath during the Feast of Unleavened Bread. (You may Google “Judaism calendar” and purchase one or more.) It was revealed to Jesus’ apostle Paul, “God is entrusting the tribe of Judea to keep His oracles. It’s one reason Jews have been so persecuted by gentile populations.

(Romans 3:1-18; “Therefore what advantage does the Jew have, or what is the value of circumcision? Actually, there are many advantages. First of all, the Jews were entrusted with the oracles of God. What then? If some, “Jews” did not believe, does their unbelief nullify the faithfulness of God? Absolutely not! Let God be proven true, and every human being shown up as a liar, just as it is written: “so that you will be justified7 in your words and will prevail when you are judged.” (Quote from Psalms 51:4) (5) But if our “we Christians” unrighteousness demonstrates the righteousness of God, what shall we say? The God who inflicts wrath is not unrighteous, is He? (I am speaking in human terms.) Absolutely not! For otherwise how could God judge the world? For if by my lie the truth of God enhances His glory, why am I still actually being judged as a sinner? And why not say, “Let us do evil so that good may come of it”? – as some who slander us allege that we say. (Their condemnation is deserved!) (9-18; “What then? Are we better off? Certainly not, for we have already charged that Jews and Greeks alike are all under sin, just as it is written: “There is no one righteous, not even one, there is no one who understands, there is no one who seeks God. All have turned away, together they have become worthless; there is no one who shows kindness, not even one.” “Their throats are open graves, they deceive with their tongues, the poison of asps is under their lips.” “Their mouths are full of cursing and bitterness.” “Their feet are swift to shed blood, ruin and misery are in their paths, and the way of peace they have not known.” “There is no fear of God before their eyes.”) (Paul is using quotes from, Psalms 5:9, 36:1, 140:3. 143:2 and Isaiah 59:7-8.)

Israelite populations were expecting the Messiah when Jesus came. Jews are still expecting a Messiah likened to Moses. Thus Judaism still maintains God’s calendar, weekly and annual Sabbaths. Jesus was ask if He was going to set up His kingdom and one mother ask Him if her two sons could have leadership positions in His kingdom. When being examined by Pilate, Jesus said, “My kingdom is not from this world and for the reason of being a king, I was born.”

(John 18:33-38; “So Pilate went back into the governor’s residence, summoned Jesus, and asked Him, “Are you the king of the Jews?” Jesus replied, “Are you saying this on your own initiative, or have others told you about Me?” Pilate answered, “I am not a Jew, am I? Your own people and your chief priests handed you over to me. What have you done?” (36) Jesus replied, “My kingdom is not from this world. If My kingdom were from this world, My servants would be fighting to keep Me from being handed over to the Jewish authorities. But as it is, My kingdom is not from here.” Then Pilate said, “So you are a king!” Jesus replied, “You say that I am a king. For this reason I was born, and for this reason I came into the world – to testify to the truth. Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to My voice.” Pilate asked, “What is truth?”)

What is truth? Has been an ongoing question since Adam. God’s Word proclaims “God is truth.” Paul’s message to the gentile populations was about the kingdom of God.

(Acts 20:25-35; Paul wrote, “And now I know that none of you among whom I went around proclaiming the kingdom will see me again. Therefore I declare to you today that I am innocent of the blood of you all. For I did not hold back from announcing to you the whole purpose of God. Watch out for yourselves and for all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God that He obtained with the blood of His own Son. I know that after I am gone fierce wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock. Even from among your own group men will arise, teaching perversions of the truth to draw the disciples away after them. Therefore be alert, remembering that night and day for three years I did not stop warning each one of you with tears. And now I entrust you to God and to the message of His grace. This message is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified. I have desired no one’s silver or gold or clothing. You yourselves know that these hands of mine provided for my needs and the needs of those who were with me. By all these things, I have shown you that by working in this way we must help the weak, and remember the words of the Lord Jesus that He Himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” When Paul had said these things, he knelt down with them all and prayed.”)

The good news from Jesus and His apostles is about His coming kingdom on earth, the resurrections; “sanctified believers in the first resurrection and others in their own order. None taught people to trust their own intellect or look to gentile philosophies. Part of the apostate Jude saw taking place was unbelievers omitting Jesus’ resurrections doctrine in lieu of the demonic pagan philosophy of immortality. Teaching that everyone is born to live forever someplace; “good to heaven and bad to ever burning fire.”

(1 Corinthians 15:12-19; “Now if Christ is being preached as raised from the dead, how can some of you say there is no resurrection of the dead? But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is futile and your faith is empty. Also, we are found to be false witnesses about God, because we have testified against God that he raised Christ from the dead, when in reality he did not raise Him, if indeed the dead are not raised. For if the dead are not raised, then not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is useless; you are still in your sins. Furthermore, those who have fallen asleep in Christ have also perished. For if only in this life we have hope in Christ, we should be pitied more than anyone.”

(15:20-28; “But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since death came through a man, “Adam” the resurrection of the dead also came through a man, “Jesus.” For just as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive. But each in his own order: Christ, the firstfruits; then when Christ comes, those who belong to Him. Then comes the end, (24) when He hands over the kingdom to God the Father, when He has brought to an end all rule and all authority and power. For He, “Jesus” must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet. The last enemy to be eliminated is death. For He, “God the Father” has put everything in subjection under His, “Jesus’” feet. But when it says “everything” has been put in subjection, it is clear that this does not include the One who put everything in subjection to Him. And when all things are subjected to Him, “God the Father” then the Son Himself will be subjected to the One, “God the Father” who subjected everything to Him, so that God may be all in all.”) NOTE that Paul’s prophecy here at verse 24 jumps past Jesus’ millennial rule to when New Jerusalem comes down.)

(15:29-34;” Otherwise, what will those do who are baptized for the dead? If the dead are not raised at all, then why are they baptized for them? Why too are we in danger every hour? Every day I am in danger of death! This is as sure as my boasting in you, which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord. If from a human point of view I fought with wild beasts at Ephesus, what did it benefit me? If the dead are not raised, let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die. Do not be deceived: “Bad company corrupts good morals.” Sober up as you should, and stop sinning! For some have no knowledge of God – I say this to your shame!”

(15:35-41; But someone will say, “How are the dead raised? With what kind of body will they come?” Fool! What you sow will not come to life unless it dies. And what you sow is not the body that is to be, but a bare seed – perhaps of wheat or something else. But God gives it a body just as He planned, and to each of the seeds a body of its own. All flesh is not the same: People have one flesh, animals have another, birds and fish another. And there are heavenly bodies and earthly bodies. The glory of the heavenly body is one sort and the earthly another. There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon and another glory of the stars, for star differs from star in glory.”) Allow John’s revelation regarding our spiritual bodies.

(1John 3:2-3; “Dear friends, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet been revealed. We know that whenever it is revealed we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is. And everyone who has this hope focused on Him purifies15 himself, just as Jesus is pure).

(15:42-49; “It is the same with the resurrection of the dead. What is sown is perishable, “will decay” what is raised is imperishable. It is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body. So also it is written, “The first man, Adam, became a living person”; the last Adam, became a life-giving spirit. However, the spiritual did not come first, but the natural, and then the spiritual. The first man is from the earth, made of dust; the second man is from heaven. Like the one made of dust, so too are those made of dust, and like the One from heaven, so too those who are heavenly. And just as we have borne the image of the man of dust, let us also bear the image of the man of heaven.”

(15:50-55; “Now this is what I am saying, brothers and sisters: Flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. Listen, I will tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed – in a moment, in the blinking of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality. Now when this perishable puts on the imperishable, and this mortal puts on immortality, then the saying that is written will happen, “Death has been swallowed up in victory.” “Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?” (Paul is quoting from Isa 25:8 and Hosea 13”14) “In the flesh we are mortal, but this mortal must put on immortality. (Lets jump back to verse 53; For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality.”

(15:56-58; “The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ! So then, dear brothers and sisters, be firm. Do not be moved! Always be outstanding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.”) A big portion of Jesus’ deeds was the revelation that He Recreated the heavens and earth, He recreated physical life in Lazarus and through Peter recreated physical life to Tabatha. He recreated bread and fish to feed thousands. He will recreate each in their own order. (It’s prophesied; All Israel to be saved ) ROMANS 11:25-27; “For I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers and sisters, so that you may not be conceited: A partial hardening has happened to Israel until the full number of the Gentiles has come in. (26) And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: “The Deliverer will come out of Zion; He will remove ungodliness from Jacob. (27) And this is My covenant with them, when I take away their sins.” (Paul is quoting from Isaiah 27:9, 59:20-21 and Jeremiah 31:33-34.)

(Romans 6:21-23; “So what benefit did you then reap from those things that you are now ashamed of? For the end of those things is death. But now, freed from sin and enslaved to God, you have your benefit leading to sanctification, and the end is eternal life. For the payoff of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”) Jesus revealed these thing to Paul and kept him humble.

(2 Corinthians 12:1-10; “It is necessary to go on boasting. Though it is not profitable, I will go on to visions and revelations from the Lord. I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago (whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, God knows) was caught up to the third heaven. And I know that this man (whether in the body or apart from the body I do not know, God knows) was caught up into paradise and heard things too sacred to be put into words, things that a person is not permitted to speak. On behalf of such an individual I will boast, but on my own behalf I will not boast, except about my weaknesses. For even if I wish to boast, I will not be a fool, for I would be telling the truth, but I refrain from this so that no one may regard me beyond what he sees in me or what he hears from me, even because of the extraordinary character of the revelations. Therefore, so that I would not become arrogant, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to trouble me – so that I would not become arrogant. I asked the Lord three times about this, that it would depart from me. But He said to me, “My grace is enough for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” So then, I will boast most gladly about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may reside in me. Therefore I am content with weaknesses, with insults, with troubles, with persecutions and difficulties for the sake of Christ, for whenever I am weak, then I am strong.”) May we each be gifted with the grace of believing IN and overcome to the end.

The Apostacy and commentary, chapter 8

(Sharing God’s View with 7,602 in resident churches: people being made temples of His spirit,)

11/22/17; God’s 9th month, Kislev 4, 5778 until sunset.

      We can‘t love God as He is manifested to be in the holy scriptures without believing IN faith in all His promises. A gifted “believing IN faith” is more than “hope faith.” (To get a correct comprehension of Godly Love; “study 1Corinthians 13: inserting Godly Love“ in place of “love or charity” if you are using a King James translation“ The gift of God‘s grace is a Godly Love toward us.

       Eph 2:8-10; “For by “God’s” grace you are saved through ’believing IN’ faith, and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God; it is not from works, so that no one can boast. For we are His workmanship, having been created in Christ Jesus for good works that God prepared beforehand so we may do them.”) Workmanship? Each believing IN person is on God’s potter wheel. God is spiritually shaping each Believer IN as He leads and gives His spirit of yielding to Himself. God’s spirit leads us to know that Jesus is our Shepherd, we are the branches and Jesus the Vine. We can do nothing except we abide in the Vine. God prepared beforehand? Meditate on that, as we prayerfully study God’s Word.

       God’s spirit is gifted to and dwells in Believing IN God the Father and God the Son. Thus such Believers IN are Temples of His spirit. Believers IN “Christians” set aside; “sanctified.” Spiritually fulfilling what circumcision foreshadowed. (A people gifted with a love for God and His Way.) His loving law is imputed to our being. It’s a fulfillment, “NOT a doing away with” God’s Law. Jesus’ apostle Paul taught the same to gentiles.

      (Eph 2:11-12; “Therefore remember that formerly you, the 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.”)

       Non-Israelites were not considered God’s chosen people. However it was always planned, “by promise to Abraham” that many non-Israelites would be grafted in. (Thus Gentiles and Israelites are saved by grace, “spiritually circumcised” “set aside” “sanctified,” all of which mean the same thing.!)

        We were each foreknown “as was Isaac” and saved by promised grace as was Isaac. It’s the covenant of promise, through Jesus. Fulfilled by God’s calling and saving individuals by grace.

      The apostasy Jude wrote about goes in tangents. (1) Saved by personal choice is one. (2) Saved by a methodology. (3) Attempting to divide God the Son and the Father. (4) Altering or changing God’s calendar of holy times. (Example: how does “saved by grace fit” when a baby is sprinkled and pronounced saved?) Such is denominational works, without scriptural authorization. Any act of claiming a belief in without turning from “what God views as sin.” (Could it be in a righteous God’s character to save in such circumstance?) NO. Such are works of the flesh, “when a turning to God’s Way isn’t scripturally adhered to.

       (Eph 2:13-22; “But now IN Christ Jesus you who used to be far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For He “Jesus Christ” is our peace, the One who made both groups “Israelites and non-Israelitesinto one and who destroyed the middle wall of partition, the hostility, when He “Jesus” nullified in His flesh the law of commandments in decrees. He did this to create in Himself one new man “humanity” 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. And He “Jesus” came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near, so that through Him “as our Shepherd” we both “Israelites and non-Israelites” have access in one spirit to the Father. (19) So then you “gentiles” 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. (21) 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.”)

      Salvation is by promise to those led to seek God as He manifest Himself to be. Jesus foretold it, “Jude and each apostle saw the apostasy budding.” Today it is in full bloom. Jesus’ apostles were inspired to give us insight regarding organized religions. See Paul’s teaching on the subject.

       (2 Thess 2:1-12; “Now regarding the arrival of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to be with Him, we ask you, brothers and sisters, not to be easily shaken from your composure or disturbed by any kind of spirit or message or letter allegedly from us, “or a future person claiming to be an apostle” to the effect that the day of the Lord is already here. Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not arrive until the rebellion comes and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction. He opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, and as a result he takes his seat in God’s temple, displaying himself as God. Surely you recall that I used to tell you these things while I was still with you. And so you know what holds him back, so that he will be revealed in his own time. For the hidden power of lawlessness is already at work. However, the One who holds him back will do so until he is taken out of the way, and then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will destroy by the breath of His mouth and wipe out by the manifestation of His arrival. The arrival of the lawless one will be by Satan’s working with all kinds of miracles and signs and false wonders, and with every kind of evil deception directed against those who are perishing, because they found no place in their hearts for the truth so as to be saved. Consequently God sends on them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false. And so all of them who have not believed the truth but have delighted in evil will be condemned.”)

       God’s sending a deluding influence is “by His allowing Satan to deceive the whole world.” Satan and one or more followers are going to work miracles to the degree Paul describes here and Jesus foretold,; quoted in Matthews gospel account. Let’s thank God for planning Satan’s demise and His mercy toward us.

      Jesus’ apostle John recorded Jesus’ Words regarding the ruler of this world.

      (John 14:29; “I will not speak with you much longer, for the ruler of this worldSatan” is coming.”) Satan had been deceiving this earth’s populations since creation; “Jesus is speaking about Satan’s coming to distort His purpose and message.” True to Jesus’ prophecy; as soon as He ascended, Satan began sending false teachers to infiltrate God’s churches, “spiritual Israelites.” World wide divisionary indoctrinations is Satan’s demonic purpose. Consider how successful Satan has been in palming himself and his followers off as “angels of light.” Through this means, Satan has the whole world in subjection to his confusions. (Naturally each group say, “yes, all but us.”)

       Satan knew “soon after Jesus’ ascension he would be allowed to infiltrate.” As Jesus began revealing Himself and calling out gentiles, Satan was palming himself off as an angel of light. This was somewhat surprising to many in God’s Jerusalem church. As God was calling a gentile family to believe IN Jesus Satan was influencing the Jerusalem church to reject gentiles. That first recorded conversion was Cornelius and his family. After their conversion, Peter and the other apostles were needing to explain how the holy spirit witnessed to Cornelius’s family as it had to the many Israelites on that Pentecost after Jesus‘ ascension.

      (”After Peter stopped speaking, James replied, “Brothers, listen to me. Simeon has explained how God first concerned Himself to select from among the Gentiles a people for His name. The words of the prophets agree with this, as it is written, (16) ‘After this I will return, and I will rebuild the fallen tent of David; I will rebuild its ruins and restore it, so that the rest of humanity may seek the Lord, namely, all the Gentiles I have called to be My own, says the Lord, who makes these things known from long ago.” Acts 15:13-18) James is referring to Amos 9:.

      Cornelius and family were selected - chosen, called out to obedience resulting in righteousness. It was by God’s grace that gentiles too were chosen to began practicing His righteousness. Consider Jesus’ apostle Paul’s explanation regarding their spiritual calling.

      (Romans 6:15-16; “What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Absolutely not! Do you not know that if you present yourselves as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey, either of sin resulting in death, or obedience resulting in righteousness?”)

       People were then and now slaves to the system of things they obey! Who has the mind to look around and consider the paganism gripping this world of Christendom. Who is obeying and who is the perpetrator of disobedience?

       (All bible reading people know that Jesus’ apostle Paul was a persecutor of God’s called out people “until he was miraculously called.”) Paul said about himself, “I was a Pharisee of Pharisees until Jesus revealed Himself when I was on my way to Damascus to do more persecutions.” Paul was blinded about Jesus’ deity while involved in Judaism.

       (“So I, ’Paul’ said, ‘Who are you, Lord?’ And the Lord replied, ‘I am Jesus whom you are persecuting. But get up and stand on your feet, for I have appeared to you for this reason, to designate you in advance as a servant and witness to the things you have seen and to the things in which I will appear to you. I will rescue you from your own people “the Israelites” and from the Gentiles, to whom I am sending you to open their eyes so that they turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a share among those who are sanctified by faith in Me.” Acts 26:15-18)

       HOW was Paul called and set aside - sanctified? Is it basically the same with each? By GIFTED faith in Jesus! What did Jesus promise through Paul? To open people’s eyes “give understanding to!” Turn people from darkness to light! From Satan to God! WHY? SO, they may receive forgiveness of sins and share with others’ sanctified by faith in Jesus.

      Satan’s indoctrination of the world was apparent before Jesus’ human birth. Since Jesus’ human birth “God the Father and God the Son’s characteristics and Ways are revealed through Jesus’ life.” Through Jesus’ life and deeds He and God the Father are revealed; “people are called from Satan’s darkness to God’s Light.” This good news was revealed to John and John recorded in chapter 14: “it’s the mystery this unbelieving world cannot grasp.” WHY? God gives His understanding to His chosen and He is about the business of building a priesthood of Believers IN Jesus.

(Sharing God’s View with 7,581 in resident churches: people being made temples of His spirit,)

11/21/17; God’s 9th month, Kislev 3, 5778 until sunset.

      Atheist, religions of every persuasion and Christendom denominations believe a man called Jesus lived. History is emphatic on the subject; but only those to whom He reveals Himself, believes IN to the degree of having ultimate trust.

      (John 10:25-30; Jesus replied, “I told you and you do not believe. The deeds I do in My Father’s name testify about Me. (26) But you refuse to believe because you are not My sheep. My sheep listen to My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me I give them eternal life, and they will never perish; no one will snatch them from My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all, and no one can snatch them from My Father’s hand. (30) The Father and I are One.”) As we’ve expounded “many believe that” few “believe IN.” His miraculous deeds testify. God the Father calls and reveals God the Son is whom gives eternal life. Jesus revealed Himself to His apostles as followers.

      (Col 1:15-20; “He “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. He “Jesus” 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, “the Son” 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.”)

      People not worshiping our Creator God as He is manifested in the above text, “are part of the APOSTASY Jude wrote about.” Many seemingly assume that Godly love means, “a condoning of all human activity.” That could be the demonic definition of love: but it’s the broad path that leads to destruction. (Spiritual understanding is distorted when only one of Satan’s lies is incorporated into the human belief system.) Jesus said His good news, would be told to the whole world before His return. (Study Matthew 24: and Revelations 11:) Jesus foreknew the demonic led apostasy and He ordained two witnesses to miraculously announce His Way. Jesus reveals to John and he to us that these two will be killed; the populations will rejoice and after three days God will resurrect them. (Review Revelations 11: from the previous study.)

.      (Revelations 11:14-19; “The second woe has come and gone; the third is coming quickly.(15) Then the seventh angel blew his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven saying: “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ, and He will reign for ever and ever.”(16) Then the twenty-four elders who are seated on their thrones before God threw themselves down with their faces to the ground and worshiped God with these words: “We give you thanks, Lord God, the All-Powerful, the One who is and who was, because you have taken your great power and begun to reign. (18) The nations were enraged, but Your wrath has come, and the time has come for the dead to be judged, and the time has come to give to Your servants, the prophets, their reward, as well as to the Saints and to those who revere Your name, both small and great, and the time has come to destroy those who destroy the earth.” (19) Then the temple of God in heaven was opened and the ark of His covenant was visible within His temple. And there were flashes of lightning, roaring, crashes of thunder, an earthquake, and a great hailstorm.”) Do we sees reasons to ask God for a shortening of the time?

       Jesus said and Matthew recorded in chapter 24: “time will be shortened for the Elect’s sake.” In this so called enlightened time, Jesus has been so camouflaged that the world will rejoice when His two witnesses are killed, this demonstrating the degree to which the APOSTASY will have encompassed the whole world. We should not be surprised at Satan’s successes.

      As unbelievers invaded God‘s churches, attempting to make Jesus characteristically fit pagan views, “Jude recognized where the apostasy was leading the world.” We who aren’t blinded by demonic forces, see the culmination of these apostasies. (Study Jude’s letter again. The apostasy is much deeper than Satan’s first lie, his influencing a pagan calendar, and planning a one world governing body of unbelievers. Only a few haven’t bowed to their Baal type philosophy the holy scriptures define as this “worldly system of things.”

       Heavenly Father: please help us individually understand the difference in, “believing that” opposed to “believing IN.” We believers IN are looking forward to Your kingdom’s establishment and our living Your promises. Our meeting in the sky and literally ruling under the king of king’s authority In Jesus’ holy name we ask and worship. AMEN.

      Reveled spiritual understanding is given individually through methods of God’s choosing. Hearing, reading, observations and angelic appearances have fit His methods. The desire to turn from falsehood to the practice of righteous living is from God. Give our Creator God praise when truth is understood. It is revelation! Not from within our fleshly nature or intellect. John the Baptist shared this truth.

       (Matt 3:7-10; “But when John saw many Pharisees and Sadducees coming to his baptism, he said to them, “You offspring of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the coming wrath? Therefore produce fruit that proves your repentance, and don’t think you can say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father.’ For I tell you that God can raise up children for Abraham from these stones! Even now the ax is laid at the root of the trees, and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.”)

      Produce fruit? Practice God’s righteous Way of living. Turn from practices that’s designed to honor pagan gods! Carefully set prideful boasting aside and “only boast in the Lord.” Spiritual comprehension with the holy spirit, is gifted as the wind blows. (John 3:7-8; “Do not be amazed that I said to you, ‘You must all be born from above.’ (8) The wind blows wherever it will, and you hear the sound it makes, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.”)

      It’s spiritual immersion, gifted individually thru Jesus. John the Baptist continues. (Matt 3:11; “I baptize you with water, for repentance, but the One coming after me is more powerful than I am, I am not worthy to carry His sandals. He will baptize you with the holy spirit and fire.”) Baptize means “immerse.” God immerses repentant individuals with His spirit and will ultimately immerse “burn UP” unbelievers.

(Matt 3:12; “Jesus’ winnowing (examining in order to remove) fork, is in His hand, and He will clean out His threshing floor and will gather His wheat into the storehouse, but the chaff He will burn up with inextinguishable fire.”) The threshing floor is where grain was separated from chaff.

       God still calls individuals as He did Abraham and defines sin as lawlessness in His View. Living contrary to His Way is lawlessness. Jesus’ revealed to Paul and he wrote.

       (Romans 6:16-18; “Do you not know that if you present yourselves as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey, either of sin resulting in death, or obedience resulting in righteousness? But thanks be to God, though you were slaves to sin, you obeyed from the heart that pattern of teaching you were entrusted to, and having been freed from sin, you became enslaved to righteousness.”)

       Deceived or not; admitted to or not: “the cultural practices of ancient pagans were to served gods of their imagination and that’s lawlessness ‘sin’ in God’s View. God gives us the following through Isaiah.

      (Isaiah 45:22-25; “Turn to Me so you can be delivered, all you who live in the earth’s remote regions! For I am God, and I have no peer. I solemnly make this oath – what I say is true and reliable: ‘Surely every knee will bow to Me, every tongue will solemnly affirm; they will say about Me, “Yes, the Lord is a powerful Deliverer.” All who are angry at Him will cower before Him. All the descendants of Israel will be vindicated by the Lord and will boast in Him.”)

       ALL who belong to Jesus are descendants of Jacob whose name was changed to “Israel.” Jesus’ apostle Paul explained: (And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to the promise.” Galatians 3:29)

       Who is tired of living the get way? Who is tired of being in bondage to paganism? Ask God for mercy; ask Him to lead you to His Word and gift you with understanding. We either love this world’s system of things, or we despise it’s result. God’s lead is to turn from this world’s system of things; “from what seemed right to the fleshly mind” to God’s righteous Way, “that’s repentance.” With responding to that gifted understanding, God changes His chosen people from the way of death to the way of life.

       Jesus’ apostle Paul explained to converted from pagan practicing people, to God’s Way of living.”

      (Ephesians 2:1-3; “And although you “Christians” 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.”) Note that Paul includes himself.

       The Ephesians were mostly non-Israelites, who worshiped the god of fertility and other planetary imagined gods. (Paul knew Abraham’s God, but before his conversion, “he lived as though he was made for the law.”) Also lawlessness “sin” in God’s View. It was revealed to Paul, “law was made for man, not man for the law.” Paul was gifted to understands that God did the choosing, “Paul did not choose to understand God’s Way.”

       (Eph 2:4-7; “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, to demonstrate in the coming ages the surpassing wealth of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.”)

       Prior to God’s grace to Paul and these Ephesians they were as dead. However when God revealed Himself, Paul and they believed IN and God made them alive. Has the God of Abraham, “Jesus” revealed Himself to you?

(Sharing God’s View with 7,553 in resident churches: people being made temples of His spirit,)

11/20/17; God’s 9th month, Kislev 2, 5778 until sunset.

       Jesus revealed to John and he to Jesus’ followers that His end time gospel would be delivered by His two witnesses. (Rev 11:3-4; “And I will grant My two witnesses authority to prophesy for 1,260 days, dressed in sackcloth. (These are the two olive trees and the two lamp stands that stand before the Lord of the earth.”) Study the whole.

      (Revelations 11:7-14 “When they have completed their testimony, the beast that comes up from the abyss will make war on them and conquer them and kill them. Their corpses will lie in the street of the great city that is symbolically called Sodom and Egypt, where their Lord was also crucified. (9) For three and a half days those from every people, tribe, nation, and language will look at their corpses, because they will not permit them to be placed in a tomb. And those who live on the earth will rejoice over them and celebrate, even sending gifts to each other, because these two prophets had tormented those who live on the earth. (11) But after three and a half days a breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and tremendous fear seized those who were watching them. Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them: “Come up here!” So the two prophets went up to heaven in a cloud while their enemies stared at them. (13) Just then a major earthquake took place and a tenth of the city collapsed; seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake, and the rest were terrified and gave glory to the God of heaven. The second woe has come and gone;35 the third is coming quickly.”)

      Jesus knew how demonic denominations of man would have the whole world deceived. How the apostasy Jude spoke of would unfold: the result and divisions organized religions would bring about, by the leadership of Satan. Every indication from every biblical source is that; “Jesus will find very little faith when He returns.” (Jesus prophesied that the whole world would be deceived, “if possible, even the Elect.” (See Matt 24:22-31) Satan has the entire world believing a multitude of lies!.

      Denominations assuming they are commissioned to take Jesus’ good news to the nations are following Satan‘s lead. The proof is in their mixture of abominable pagan practices with their messaging. The deceptive apostasies Jude called attention to are a major part of today’s modern church accepted theology. This latter day stage was set when Catholicism devised the modern Roman calendar: “naming week days after pagan gods and it’s year beginning at the winter equinox.” (Modern worldly religions have a ‘Cain’ mentality, “assume God is pleased with their assumptions.”

        God calendar ordains that the new moon be the dividing point for each new month. Long before Moses non-Israelites populations were devising their own calendar. Each inspired by Satan’s attempt to duplicate God’s planned world order under Jesus and His Saints. (Speaking to Believers IN, John writes; “We know that we are from God  and the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.” 1John 5:19)

       Jesus said: “Now this is the basis for judging: that the light has come into the world and people loved the darkness rather than the light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone who does evil deeds hates the light and does not come to the light, so that their deeds will not be exposed. But the one who practices the truth comes to the light, so that it may be plainly evident that his deeds have been done in God.” John 3:19-21)

      Unbelievers designing their calendars, “called them God ordained” even as they honor pagan gods, rather than the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. When Jesus returns His calendar and ordained holy time will be re-instituted  according to His master plan.

       Heavenly Father: help us realize that Your definition of love and the world’s is opposite. Please reveal Yourself to each reader, while leading us to prove all things in Jesus’ Light. We ask as we attempt to live in the nature and name of Jesus. AMEN

        All major religions attempt to love the god of their particular imagination. Some rely on statutes and images to remind them of what their god looks like. (The Egyptians whose first born were killed on that Passover night and the people groups whose lands God gave to the Israelites, believed in a god of their imagination.) The Pharisees and Sadducees Jesus encountered said,” they believed in the God of their forefathers.” They too had began making Abraham’s God fit their fleshly view. Jesus told them why they did not believe nor know Him or God the Father

      (John 10:25-30; Jesus replied, “I told you and you do not believe. The deeds I do in My Father’s name testify about Me. But you refuse to believe because you are not My sheep. My sheep listen to My voice and I know them, and they follow Me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish; no one will snatch them from My hand. (29) My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all, and no one can snatch them from My Father’s hand. The Father and I are One.”)

      The religious world can’t comprehend that the priesthood of Believers IN Jesus are a called out people, “predestined with a new covenant.” That such spiritual comprehension is gifted!

       Jesus’ apostles also thought they were believers “in the God of their forefathers.” However Jesus’ original apostles, Paul, Jesus’ two brothers, ‘James and Jude’ were not gifted with believing IN faith until after Jesus’ resurrection and ascension. Jesus’ apostle John was given to understand that Isaiah was given the revelations we need.

       (John 12:37-41; “Although Jesus had performed so many miraculous signs before them, they still refused to believe IN Him, so that the word of Isaiah the prophet would be fulfilled. He said, “Lord, who has believed our message, and to whom has the arm of the Lord been REVEALED?” For this reason they could not believe, because again Isaiah said, “He has blinded their eyes and hardened their heart, so that they would not see with their eyes and understand with their heart, and turn to Me, and I would heal them.” Isaiah said these things because he saw Christ’s glory, and spoke about Him.”)

      Believing IN is a spiritual matter; “gifted to the called Elect.” Many are prone to take on a religious persona of choice, believe a god of their imagination exist, but only God’s chosen are gifted to believe IN and understand the spiritual intent of His Way.

       (Luke 24:44-49; Then Jesus 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 Jesus 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. You are witnesses of these things. And look, I am sending you what My Father promised. But stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.”)

       Jesus’ promise was fulfilled to those selected on Pentecost. Later Paul was called, gifted with the same spirit and taught the following.

       (1 Thess 2:13- “And so we too constantly thank God that when you, “converted people” 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. For you became imitators, brothers and sisters, of God’s churches in Christ Jesus that are in Judea, because you too suffered the same things from your own countrymen as they in fact did from the Jews, who killed both the Lord Jesus and the prophets and persecuted us severely. They are displeasing to God and are opposed to all people, because they hinder us from speaking to the Gentiles so that they may be saved. Thus they constantly fill up their measure of sins, but wrath has come upon them completely.”)

       With various attitudes, divisions about right, wrong, good and evil; it’s obvious that the majority love a god of their own making. It’s in our fleshly nature to love a god that allows us to choose for ourselves, what is right, wrong, good and evil. A god that rolls with tradition and condones ungodly practices God told Ezekiel what was abominations to Himself and this is what the apostasy Jude wrote about, has done to this world.

       To worship our Creator God in spirit and truth we must be led to recognize His attributes, characteristics and His plan for our saving. (We must accept that there is a devil, whose desire is to wreck God’s plan and purpose.) Believing IN God is to know that He is ultimately going to destroy Satan and all evil. The Word from Genesis, through Revelations, reveals His promised plan to save many of this earth’s populations. God the Father reveals His righteous attributes and characteristics through Jesus.

        (Hebrews 1:1-4; “After God spoke long ago in various portions and in various ways to our ancestors through the prophets, (2) 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 ’the Son’ 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 (4) Thus He became so far better than the angels as He has inherited a name superior to theirs.)

       Jesus revealed Himself to Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Joshua, His apostles and we Saints. Consider the following two scriptures in Romans and Genesis from God’s point of view.

      (1).Rom 15:4-5; Jesus’ apostle Paul shared; “For everything that was written in former times was written for our instruction, so that through endurance and through encouragement of the scriptures we may have hope. Now may the God of endurance and comfort give you unity with one another in accordance with Christ Jesus, so that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.”)

       (2) Gen 15:12-16; “When the sun went down, Abram fell sound asleep, and great terror overwhelmed him. Then the Lord said to Abram, “Know for certain that your descendants will be strangers in a foreign country. They will be enslaved and oppressed for four hundred years. But I will execute judgment on the nation that they will serve. Afterward they will come out with many possessions. But as for you, “Abraham” you will go to your ancestors in peace and be buried at a good old age. In the fourth generation your descendants will return here, for the sin of the Amorites has not yet reached its limit.”) (a) The judgment the Lord God ’Jesus’ executed on Egypt and the Amorites is from the foundation of His Love, for our example and learning. (b) God plans all His involvements in the affairs of people. (c) God plans the destruction of nations from the foundation of His Love and with foreknowledge of where their sins were taking them.

       When the many read of God’s judgments, they assume the God of the Old Covenant is unloving and different from the God of the New Covenant, “Jesus.” Gross error! He is One and the same.” (Re-study study John 1:1-5, Hebrews 1: and let’s study Colossians 1:15-20 next time.

(Sharing God’s View with 7,525 in resident churches: people being made temples of His spirit,)

11/19/17. God’s 8th month, Cheshvan 29, 5778 until sunset. 

     Holy God: we ask You give many Your desire to study Your word independently of this world’s denominations. Give us to know, we Saints are in this world but not of this world and help us understand what that means. We pray in the holy nature and name of Jesus. Amen.

      It’s our nature to sell what we think we understand and believe. It seems unbelievers work harder at that than do believers IN. We Believers are spiritually taught that we can’t in and of ourselves convert another. That spiritual comprehension is gifted to Believers IN. So we Believers put forth God’s truth with the understanding that He does the rest. While we try to rationalize with folk, “the difference in “believing that” opposed to “believing IN” we understand that He does the converting. Unbelievers attempt to sell a “believe that” philosophy. Even teaching that people are saved by simply “believing that.” Believers IN caution folks about that philosophy, from the point of view that “even Satan “believes that” and coaches his followers to teach a lawlessness doctrine. 

      To believe IN God the Father and God the Son as they are manifested to be in the holy scriptures. To know by “gifted faith” (Jesus is the Creator, Re-creator, Sustainer, Deliverer, Redeemer, the resurrection, One through whom eternal life is gifted and our Mediator before God the Father.) To know this Jesus is to know and desire obedience to Him. To know this Jesus is to believe IN Him and His miraculous deeds.

       Jesus was Israel’s Deliverer and Rock through Moses. (See 1Corinthians 10:4) Jesus created manna six days a week for the Israelites and re-created birds for their meat when they complained. He gave them plenty of water from a rock. Through Elisha Jesus purified water for the Israelites drinking and crops. (See 2Kings 2:19-22) Through Elisha Jesus re-created olive oil for a widow woman so she could pay her debts and live on the prophets. (See 2Kings 4:)Through Elisha Jesus promised a Shunammite woman a son and later when her son died, restored life to the boy. (See 2Kings 4:-8:) Jesus restored life to Lazarus after being dead four days. Telling Lazarus’ sisters that He was the resurrection. (See John 11:) Jesus re-created bread and fish feeding thousands: proving by deeds that He is, “Creator” and “Re-creator.” Through Peter, Jesus healed many when Peter’s shadow passed over then and restored life to Tabatha. (See Acts 9:36-43) Jesus did many more miracles, the holy scriptures confirm, “so many the book can’t contain them all.”

      Each time a mind is opened to understand these truths; “it’s a miraculous God gifted event.” Otherwise people could boast that they earned salvation. When we believe IN these things, “let’s give God our Father all the glory. 

 Gifted believing IN faith promised through Abraham. (Review Galatians 3:29)

 God’s promise to Abraham was that his heirs would be through Isaac, “the son of promise.” Likewise followers of Jesus are saved by promise. Abraham’s believing IN God, “make sacrificing Isaac possible” because he knew God was the Life Giver, whose promises were sure. (Followers of Jesus are heirs with Abraham. See Galatians 3:29)

       (Hebrews 11:17-19; “By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac. He had received the promises, yet he was ready to offer up his only son. God had told him, “Through Isaac your descendants will carry on your name” and Abraham reasoned that God could even raise him from the dead and in a sense he received him back from there.”) Isaac’s birth was by promise to parents past the age of natural reproduction.

      God’s resurrections and judgments are sure things. It’s God’s promise to the world! When God destroys evil, “it’s from Godly love.” God’s promised resurrections and a second death to evil doers is a sure prophecy. Revealed to John four times. See Revelations, 2:11, 20:6, 20:14 and 21:5-8. Re-study John 1“1-5 and Col 1:15-20. (Lets review Revelations 21:6-8 for the benefit of new subscribers.)

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

       Satan has sold every worldly religion on his first lie. Saying what amounts to; “calling God a liar” and saying God knows you were born to live forever someplace. May we each believe God, rather than the various demonic apostates. This truth was established long before Jesus’ revelations it to John.

       (Malachi 4:1 (3:19) “For indeed the day is coming, burning like a furnace and all the arrogant evildoers will be chaff. The coming day will “burn them up,” says the Lord who rules over all. “It will not leave even a root or branch. But for you who respect My name, the sun of vindication will rise with healing wings, and you will skip about like calves released from the stall. You will trample on the wicked, for they will be like ashes under the soles of your feet on the day which I am preparing,” says the Lord who rules over all.”)

       To people God makes thirsty for His righteousness, “He gives eternal life, the holy spirit , free of charge.” “His spirit is the water of life!”

       Jesus’ promises to Abraham, His prophets, His apostles, each called out Believer IN, will come to pass in spite of deceived people and the many demonic stumbling blocks. Understand; “God could destroy Satan now” but He is allowing Satan to be the god of unbeliever for a time and for His own purpose.

      God is growing and shaping a priesthood of Believers IN to be family. A people gifted by promise with obedient wills, “Saints” who are overcoming their inherited nature and Satan’s obstacles. The holy scriptures define Satan as, “the author of confusion and the god of this age.” Satan was first named Lucifer and was brilliant in every way, until sinful pride overcame him. Satan was the deceiver at Babylon; during Nimrod’s time. The word, “Babylon” means “confusion.” But the confusion began long before Babylon. Satan deceived Adam and Eve with his first lie. That being, “God knows that you will not surely die.” This lie spreading among Believers may have been the major expanding apostasy Jude was addressing.

      Jesus taught that immortality was God’s gift to Believers IN. In conversation with the Samaritan woman at the well, Jesus said; “Everyone who drinks some of this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks some of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again; the water that I will give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up to eternal life.” John 4:13-14)

      All worldly religions teach some form of Satan’s lie. Which basically is, “people are born with an inherent spiritual component, ‘a soul’ that will live forever someplace.” There’s many variations of Satan’s lie, but the root is from that same first lie. Paul explains in his letter to Timothy.

      (2 Timothy 1:9-10; “Jesus is the One who saved us and called us with a holy calling, not based on our works but on His own purpose and grace, granted to us in Christ Jesus before time began, but now made visible through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus. He has broken the power of death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel!”)

      Through the gift of believing IN Jesus’ good news “gospel” “eternal life, ’immortality’ is gifted.” Paul explained to the church at Rome and we Believers.

      (Rom 5:12-21; “So then, just as sin entered the world through one man “Adam” 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.(14) 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.”)

      Each apostle taught, “the result of sin is death.” To the Pharisees types, “those living as though, they were made for the law.” Paul explaining that death reigned from Adam to Moses; “thus the law was always.“ Before the law was given through Moses, “death reigned.” Adam being a type of Christ; “death is a result of Adam’s disobedience.” But the gift of LIFE is through Jesus!

      (Rom 5:15-18; “But the gracious gift is not like the “Adam’s” transgression. For if the many died through the transgression of the one man, 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. (17) 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! Consequently, just as condemnation for all people came through one transgression, so too through the one righteous act (Jesus’) came righteousness leading to life for all people.”)

      Life for all people? A physical resurrection “some time after the first!” The condemnation “death” of all people is the result of Adam’s disobedience! But through Jesus’ righteousness, ALL people will have life. Think second resurrection and a second death for idolatrous unbelievers.

      (Rom 5:19-21; “For just as through the disobedience of the one man “Adam” 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 (Jesus’) righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”) Immortality, “eternal life” is only through Jesus and a future calling to His Way is prophesied. PETER explained.

      (1 Peter 1:3; “I can pray this because His divine power has bestowed on us everything necessary for “eternal” life and godliness through the rich knowledge of the One who called us by His own glory and excellence.”) Called? The term used here in its participial form, in stereological “meaning properties” contexts, when God is the subject and always carries the nuance of effectual calling. (From the Net Bible commentary we read; “the one who is called is not just invited to be saved – he is also and always saved. Calling takes place at the moment of conversion, while election takes place in eternity past.”)

      (Rom 8:30; “And those He predestined, He also called; and those He called, He also justified; and those He justified, He also glorified.”) To God’s church at Ephesus and we Believers IN, Paul explains.

      (Eph 1:4-5; “For He “God the Father” chose us in Christ before the foundation of the world that we may be holy and unblemished in His sight in love. God did this by predestining us to adoption as His sons through Jesus Christ, according to the pleasure of His will.”) (Many CALLED few CHOOSEN. Matt 22:14.)

11/17/17. God’s 8th month, Cheshvan 27 5778 until sunset.  Sharing God’s View with 7,489 in residence churches: “people He is making temples of His spirit.”

       The Son of God, ‘Jesus’ came to the Israelites, By grace He chose Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, making their heirs His own. He changed Jacob’s name to Israel, meaning “God fights.” Study Genesis 25:-28:

      When Isaac’s wife, “Rebekah” became pregnant with twins they struggled inside her womb. She wasn’t sure she wanted to be pregnant, so she went to the Lord in prayer. The Lord said to her; “Two nations are in your womb and two peoples will be separated from within you. One people will be stronger than the other, and the older will serve the younger.” The twins were named Esau and Jacob. The weaker “Jacob” cheated the stronger brother, ‘Esau’ of his birthright. Isaac loved Esau and Rebekah loved Jacob, so Rebekah helped Jacob deceive Isaac by pretending to be Esau and obtaining Esau’s blessings.

      Esau married a Hittite woman, causing Isaac and Rebekah much anxiety. So Isaac sent Jacob away to find a wife  Jacob’s blessing from Isaac went as follows. (Gen 27:28-20: “May God give you the dew of the sky and the richness of the earth, and plenty of grain and new wine. May peoples serve you and nations bow down to you. You will be lord over your brothers, and the sons of your mother will bow down to you. May those who curse you be cursed, and those who bless you be blessed.”)

       This was the Lord God’s prophesied blessing through Isaac. The blessing is a millennia prophecy more than for this pre-millennial age. (See Isaiah 22: 35:  51: 65: and Jeremiah 31:)

     Isaac commanded Jacob saying; “You must not marry a Canaanite woman! Leave immediately for Paddan Aram! Go to the house of Bethuel, your mother’s father and find yourself a wife there, among the daughters of Laban, your mother’s brother. May the sovereign God bless you! May He make you fruitful and give you a multitude of descendants! Then you will become a large nation. May He give you and your descendants the blessing He gave to Abraham so that you may possess the land God gave to Abraham, the land where you have been living as a temporary resident.”)

        Jacob married two sisters and each gave him their servant maids out of jealousy when their pregnancies didn’t happen according to their desires. Thus Jacob fathered twelve sons and at least one daughter. Israelites became twelve tribes and ultimately was Egyptian slaves until the set time, “of God’s promised deliverance.”

       The Lord God, ’Jesus’ delivered Israel through His servant Moses. True to prophecy the Israelites were a stubborn people, desiring to go the way that seemed right, rather than obey their Deliverer. Thus the Lord God, “Jesus’ used gentile nations to put Israelites in bondage again, “until the time of the gentiles.” Jesus told their future through Isaiah.

     (Isaiah 65:9-: “I will bring forth descendants from Jacob and from Judah people to take possession of My mountains. My chosen ones will take possession of the land; My servants will live there. Sharon will become a pasture for sheep, and the Valley of Achor a place where cattle graze; they will belong to My people, who seek Me.

      (11) But as for you who abandon the Lord and forget about worshiping at My holy mountain, who prepare a feast for the god called ‘Fortune’and fill up wine jugs for the god called ‘Destiny’ – I predestine you to die by the sword, all of you will kneel down at the slaughtering block, because I called to you, and you did not respond, I spoke and you did not listen. You did evil before Me; you chose to do what displeases Me.”

     (13) So this is what the sovereign Lord says: “Look, My servants will eat, but you will be hungry! Look, My servants will drink, but you will be thirsty! Look, My servants will rejoice, but you will be humiliated! Look, My servants will shout for joy as happiness fills their hearts! But you will cry out as sorrow fills your hearts; you will wail because your spirits will be crushed. Your names will live on in the curse formulas of My chosen ones. The sovereign Lord will kill you, but He will give His servants another name. Whoever pronounces a blessing in the earth will do so in the name of the faithful God;

whoever makes an oath in the earth will do so in the name of the faithful God. For past problems will be forgotten; I will no longer think about them.

     (17) For look, I am ready to create a new heavens and a new earth! The former ones will not be remembered; no one will think about them anymore. But be happy and rejoice forevermore over what I am about to create! For look, I am ready to create Jerusalem to be a source of joy, and her people to be a source of happiness. Jerusalem will bring Me joy, and My people will bring Me happiness. The sound of weeping or cries of sorrow will never be heard in her again.

      (20) Never again will one of her infants live just a few days or an old man die before his time. Indeed, no one will die before the age of a hundred, anyone who fails to reach the age of a hundred will be considered cursed. They will build houses and live in them;

they will plant vineyards and eat their fruit. No longer will they build a house only to have another live in it, or plant a vineyard only to have another eat its fruit, for My people will live as long as trees, and My chosen ones will enjoy to the fullest what they have produced. They will not work in vain, or give birth to children that will experience disaster. For the Lord will bless their children and their descendants. Before they even call out, I will respond; while they are still speaking, I will hear.

      (25) A wolf and a lamb will graze together; a lion, like an ox, will eat straw, and a snake’s food will be dirt. They will no longer injure or destroy on My entire royal mountain,” says the Lord.) So the Lord God went about choosing a people to be “spiritual Israelites.”

      (John 1:11-13; “Jesus came to what was His own, but His own people did not receive  Him. But to all who have received Him – those who believe IN His name – He has given the right to become God’s children;–children not born by human parents or by human desire or a husband’s decision, but by God.”)

       People gifted to believe IN, “are parented by God.” Not a human decision! but God’s! Jesus’ own were and are spiritual Israelites, “Chosen by promise to Abraham.” (All believers IN have Abraham as their example. Noah, Enoch, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Jesus’ prophets, apostles and all Saints are chosen! “Their asset? believing God!”) “God reveals and all these believe.” With belief comes trials, obstacles like the demonic abominations the populous around us practice and our own inherited nature, to overcome

      Abraham was tested. Think of that major test. God commanded him to sacrifice his promised son and Abraham was willing to do it; knowing that God was able to keep His promises. Knowing God would resurrect. (Review that promise. ““see Genesis 22:)

What was this earth’s population like when Abraham was chosen? As it is today. The whole world was doing what seemed right to their intellect, “their own fleshly instinctive nature.” Yielding to their own notion about what’s right, wrong, good and evil, rather than believing God.

      But, God had a plan then and now. His plan will be carried out in spite of deceived mankind yielding to Satan. God called Abraham, made promises that included Jesus, “the Seed” and His spiritual heirs, “Christians.” God made Abraham a spiritual father of all Believers IN. No apostasy in the way Abraham believed.

     (Hebrews 11:17-19; “By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac. He had received the promises, yet he was ready to offer up his only son. God had told him, “Through Isaac descendants will carry on your name” and Abraham reasoned that God could even raise him from the dead, and in a sense he received him back from there.”) Hebrews 11: is called the faith chapter, study the whole.

      What about the apostasy of our age? Religious folks might argue the point, but the simple truth is; “going against God’s Way and making Jesus’ teaching fit one’s own desired opinion is the apostasy.” Our intellectual fleshly inherited nature wants to go along, “go with the flow, follow what’s popular.” God’s Way is truth, “let God be true though every person a liar.” see Romans 3:4) God had Abraham separate from the populations at large, “walk with Him and be His friend.”

       Daniel was allowed to see this age. After foreseeing destructive rule on earth he was allowed to see the future demise of Satan. Symbolically, Daniel saw ten horns representing rulers.

       (Dan 7:20-28; “I also wanted to know the meaning of the ten horns on its head, and of that other horn which came up and before which three others fell. This was the horn that had eyes and a mouth speaking arrogant things, whose appearance was more formidable than the others. While I was watching, that horn began to wage war against the holy ones and was defeating them, until the Ancient of Days arrived and judgment was rendered in favor of the holy ones of the Most High. Then the time came for the holy ones to take possession of the kingdom. (23) “This is what He told me: ‘The fourth beast means that there will be a fourth kingdom on earth that will differ from all the other kingdoms. It will devour all the earth and will trample and crush it.(24) The ten horns mean that ten kings will arise from that kingdom. Another king will arise after them, but he will be different from the earlier ones. He will humiliate three kings. He will speak words against the Most High. He will harass the holy ones of the Most High continually. His intention will be to change times established by law. They “the holy ones” will be delivered into his hand for a time, times, and half a time. But the court will convene, and his ruling authority will be removed – destroyed and abolished forever!

     (27)Then the kingdom, authority, and greatness of the kingdoms under all of heaven will be delivered to the people of the holy ones of the Most High. His kingdom is an eternal kingdom; all authorities will serve Him and obey Him. (28) “This is the conclusion of the matter. As for me, Daniel, my thoughts troubled me greatly, and the color drained from my face. But I kept the matter to myself.”)

      The demonic apostasy that had began before Jude’s day has filled this earth. No need to set dates or put names and faces to these despots who are destined to persecute Christians. They are destined to speak arrogantly against our Creator. These things are troubling to Christians, “because we hate what Satan is doing to this earth’s populations.”

     These things don’t seem to be troubling today’s religious?

       Daniel had sin in his life that needed to be confessed and more was revealed.

      (Dan 9:20-27; “While I was still speaking and praying, confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel and presenting my request before the LORD my God concerning his holy mountain–yes, while I was still praying, the man Gabriel, whom I had seen previously in a vision, was approaching me in my state of extreme weariness, around the time of the evening offering.”) Remember all these things are for our learning. We too, need to be confessing our sins. The sins of not overcoming as we should. The sins of not loving as we should and taking blessings for granted. Daniel also confessed the sins of his people as we should. Pray that God have mercy and shorten this time.

      (Dan 9:22-24; “Gabriel spoke with me, instructing me as follows: “Daniel, I have now come to impart understanding to you. At the beginning of your requests a message went out, and I have come to convey it to you, for you are of great value in God’s sight. Therefore consider the message and understand the vision. (24) “Seventy weeks have been determined concerning your people and your holy city to put an end to rebellion, to bring sin to completion, to atone for iniquity, to bring in perpetual righteousness, to seal up the prophetic vision, and to anoint a most holy place.”)

       Jesus died for this purpose! The remission of the whole world’s sins. Evil is to be destroyed and perpetual righteousness coming.

      (Dan 9:25-27; :So know and understand: From the issuing of the command to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until an Anointed One, a prince arrives, there will be a period of seven weeks and sixty-two weeks. It will again be built, with plaza and moat, but in distressful times.(26) Now after the sixty-two weeks, an Anointed One will be cut off and have nothing. As for the city and the sanctuary, the people of the coming prince will destroy them. But his end will come speedily like a flood. Until the end of the war that has been decreed there will be destruction. (27) He will confirm a covenant with many for one week. But in the middle of that week He will bring sacrifices and offerings to a halt. On the wing of abominations will come One who destroys, until the decreed end is poured out on the one who destroys, “Satan””)

      Wars will end when Jesus returns. But, denominations had rather fight than switch. They love being gods to themselves, “love deciding for themselves, what’s right, wrong, good and evil” No end to the apostasy until Jesus binds Satan and ushers in His Way.

The Apostate and commentary, chapter 3

11/15/17. God’s 8th month, Cheshvan 25 5778 until sunset.

To 7,432 in residence churches, people God is making temples of His spirit.

       We have been in the end time age since Jesus’ ascension. The prophesied Messiah’s coming, dying for the sins of the world and ascending to His previous throne “set the end time age.” Our Lord’s brother Jude tells us about Enoch’s prophecy regarding Jesus’ second coming.

      (Jude 1:14-16; “Now Enoch, the seventh in descent beginning with Adam, even prophesied of them, saying, “Look! The Lord is coming with thousands and thousands of His holy ones, to execute judgment on all, and to convict every person of all their thoroughly ungodly deeds that they have committed, and of all the harsh words that ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.” These people are grumblers and fault-finders who go wherever their desires lead them, and they give bombastic speeches, enchanting folks for their own gain.”) Seemingly the book of Enoch isn’t preserved entirely, but accepted by the Ethiopian Orthodox Church. 

      According to western scholars Enoch is not part of the biblical cannon as used by Jews apart from Beta Israel. Most Christian denominations and traditions may accept the Books of Enoch as having some historical or theological interest, but they generally regard the Books of Enoch as non-canonical or non-inspired. Enoch is regarded as canonical by the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church and Eritrean Orthodox Tewahedo Church, but not by any other Christian groups. Extinct except in the Ge’ez language, with Aramaic fragments from the Scrolls and a few Greek and Latin fragments. For this and other reasons, the traditional Ethiopian belief is that the original language of the work was Ge’ez, whereas non-Ethiopian scholars tend to assert that it was first written in either Aramaic or Hebrew; Ephraim Isaac suggests that the Book of Enoch, like the Book of Daniel was composed partially in Aramaic and partially in Hebrew. No Hebrew version is known to have survived. It is asserted in the book itself that its author was Enoch, before the Biblical flood.

      We have a loving wholesome fear of God and trust in His promises. Writing to followers of Jesus Paul advises.

      (1 Cor 10:12-14; “So let the one who thinks he is standing be careful that he does not fall. No trial has overtaken you, “Christians” that is not faced by others. And God is faithful: He will not let you be tried beyond what you are able to bear, but with the trial will also provide a way out so that you may be able to endure it. So then, my dear friends , flee from idolatry) Many have endure death and persecutions. Remember Stephen, re-study Acts 7:.

      The apostasy is basically a paganism mix with some Judaism “using Jesus’ name.” MOST of this world’s accepted traditions is idolatry. (Jesus prayed to His Father, saying of His followers; “They are in this world but not of this world.” Now it’s apparent that Paul is probably writing to the Corinthians during the Passover season, thus the following references.

       (1 Cor 10:15-22; “I am speaking to thoughtful people. Consider what I say. Is not the cup of blessing that we bless a sharing in the blood of Christ? Is not the bread that we break a sharing in the body of Christ? Because there is one bread, we who are many are one body, for we all share the one bread.(18) Look at the people of Israel. Are not those who eat the sacrifices partners in the altar? Am I saying that idols or food sacrificed to them amount to anything? No, I mean that what the pagans sacrifice, “practice” is to demons and not to God. I do not want you to be partners with demons. You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons. You cannot take part in the table of the Lord and the table of demons.(22) Or, are we trying to provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we really stronger than He is?”)

       Practicing paganism demonstrates unbelief, in the sense Paul is bringing to our attention. If people’s sacrifices of time, money and practices are not to the true God, who are they to? If doing in the name of Jesus “is apostasy.” The theme in Jude’s letter is apostasy and the meaning of apostasy is, “the renunciation of a religious or political belief or allegiance.” Exactly what’s happened to this world’s major religions. In God’s View, counterfeit religions using Jesus’ name are Apostates! Why in this so called age of enlightenment are folks still practicing “the old god of fertility customs, looking to the East and celebrating a Jesus of their imagination?” Many of these abominable practices were brought to Israelites’ attention long before Jesus’ miraculous birth.

      (Ezekiel 8: “In the sixth year, in the sixth month, on the fifth of the month, as I was sitting in my house with the elders of Judah sitting in front of me, the hand of the sovereign Lord seized me. As I watched, I noticed a form that appeared to be a man. From his waist downward was something like fire, and from his waist upward something like a brightness, like an amber glow. He stretched out the form of a hand and grabbed me by a lock of hair on my head. Then a wind lifted me up between the earth and sky and brought me to Jerusalem by means of divine visions, to the door of the inner gate which faces north where the statue which provokes to jealousy was located Then I perceived that the glory of the God of Israel was there, as in the vision I had seen earlier in the valley.

      He said to me, “Son of man, look up toward the north.” So I looked up toward the north, and I noticed to the north of the altar gate was this statue of jealousy at the entrance. He said to me, “Son of man, do you see what they are doing – the great abominations that the people of Israel are practicing here, to drive Me far from My sanctuary? But you will see greater abominations than these!”

      He brought me to the entrance of the court, and as I watched, I noticed a hole in the wall. He said to me, “Son of man, dig into the wall.” So I dug into the wall and discovered a doorway. He said to me, “Go in and see the evil abominations they are practicing here.” So I went in and looked. I noticed every figure of creeping thing and beast – detestable images – and every idol of the house of Israel, engraved on the wall all around. Seventy men from the elders of the house of Israel (with Jaazaniah son of Shaphan standing among them) were standing in front of them, each with a censer in his hand, and fragrant vapors from a cloud of incense were swirling upward. He said to me, “Do you see, son of man, what the elders of the house of Israel are doing in the dark, each in the chamber of his idolatrous images? For they think, ‘The Lord does not see us! The Lord has abandoned the land!’” He said to me, “You will see them practicing even greater abominations!”

       (8:14; Then he brought me to the entrance of the north gate of the Lord’s house. I noticed women sitting there weeping for Tammuz. He said to me, “Do you see this, son of man? You will see even greater abominations than these!” Then he brought me to the inner court of the Lord’s house. Right there at the entrance to the Lord’s temple, between the porch and the altar, were about twenty-five men with their backs to the Lord’s temple, facing east – they were worshiping the sun toward the east! He said to me, “Do you see, son of man? Is it a trivial thing that the house of Judah commits these abominations they are practicing here? For they have filled the land with violence and provoked Me to anger still further. Look, they are putting the branch to their nose! Therefore I will act with fury! My eye will not pity them nor will I spare them. When they have shouted in My ears, I will not listen to them.”)

    : The apostasy Jude wrote about is the renunciation of Jesus’ Way. “Renunciation is to deny or reject” usually for moral or religious reasons. It is the declaration of giving something up or adding something to. Jude’s definition includes making Jesus fit popular worldly religious views. (This is the world’s definition of love also; if you please.)

      “Jesus’ Way People” were hijacked by Catholicism; dividing Orthodox and Roman Catholics and people keeping the established customs God gave Israel. Papal authority hijacked “Jesus’ Way People” with forceful persecutions of those not accepting their mix. (See Jeremiah 10: also.) A pagan mixture of images, sun, planetary worship and the god of fertility practices. Lustful idolatrous sexuality and such, “in the name of Jesus.” These facts are available to any person wanting to do a little research. Even fleshly minded people can easily discern that Catholicism was made to fit the very abominations Ezekiel was inspired to write at Ezekiel 8:.

      Jesus foreknew this apostasy would take hold after His ascension. He knew the minds of unbelievers, how they would organize and mix pagan ways to gain worldly support. Jesus knew the organizational persecutions that would follow in His name. So, Jesus taught and made the following prophesy.

      (John 15:18-19; “If the world hates you, be aware that it hated Me first. If you belonged to the world, the world would love you as its own. However, because you do not belong to the world, but I chose you out of the world, for this reason the world hates you.”) It is not in the nature of worldly religions to “LOVE Jesus’ Way.” It’s natural that worldly religions make Jesus and people they think holy fit what seems right to their fleshly minds.

      (John 15:20-21; “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.’”) Some people follow the world to avoid persecution!

       (John 15:22-24; “If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not be guilty of sin. But they no longer have any excuse for their sin. The one who hates Me hates My Father too. If I had not performed among them the miraculous deeds that no one else did, they would not be guilty of sin. But now they have seen the deeds and have hated both Me and My Father.”)

       :Jesus’ deeds gave evidence that He was the Lord God of Israel. Long before Jesus resurrected Lazarus after being dead four days, turned water into aged wine, fed thousands re-creating bread and fish, walked on water and revealed His kingdom to His apostles by appearing with Moses and Elisha; Jesus had gave life back through Elisha.

      At 2Kings 4: is the account of a Shunammmite woman to whom Elisha was led to promise a son. Later her son died and she went to Elisha for help. Elisha sent a servant saying, “lay this staff across his face” he did and returned to Elisha saying, “the boy didn’t wake.” So Elisha went; (34_37; “He got up on the bed and spread his body out over the boy; he put his mouth on the boy’s mouth, his eyes over the boy’s eyes, and the palms of his hands against the boy’s palms. He bent down over him and the boy’s skin grew warm. Elisha went back and walked around in the house. Then he got up on the bed again and bent down over him. The child sneezed seven times and opened his eyes. Elisha called to Gehazi and said, “Get the Shunammite woman.” So he did so and she came to him. He said to her, “Take your son.” She came in, fell at his feet, and bowed down. Then she picked up her son and left.”)

       Not only did Jesus speak to the people in that apostolic age; as the Lord God He spoke to previous ages. He spoke to and through Abel, Seth, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, other prophets and is speaking to this present age through His apostles. Now He has preserved His printed Word. Jesus reveals through John.

     (John 15:25-27; “Now this happened to fulfill the word that is written in their law, ‘They hated Me without reason.’ (26) When the Advocate comes, whom I will send you from the Father – the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father – it will testify about Me, and you also will testify, because you have been with Me from the beginning.”)

       The “spirit of truth” cannot tolerate any form of paganism. The spirit of truth reveals Jesus’ Way. When the Son of God, “Jesus” came as had been prophesied, He found this world’s populations in the same state of confusion, that exist today.

       Jesus’ chosen people, “the Israelites” were dispersed to pagan lands because of their disobedience. Mostly from the tribe of Judah, a few were allowed to return to the Jerusalem area. Though occupied by the Roman Caesar’s governors, they had a symbolism of self governing. The Temple was rebuilt and a priesthood reestablished. Jesus gave honor to this priesthood by sending some He healed to the priest, to submit according to the law.

The Apostate and commentary, chapter, 2

Monday, November 13th, 2017

11/13/17. God’s 8th month, Cheshvan 23 5778 until sunset.

To 7,383 in residence churches, people God is making temples of His spirit.

      Heavenly Father and our Lord God Jesus Christ:  thank You for Your calling and the discernment that we Believers IN are indeed Your temples. Please strengthen us as You did Abraham, who also lived as a stranger and foreigner among a deceived populous. In the holy name of Jesus, lead us to serve as pleasing to Yourself. AMEN.

      God allowed the apostasy that Jude saw on the horizon and will continuing to allow it until Jesus’ return. It’s prophesied that God’s two witnesses will miraculously   teach His truth message and be hated by the whole world. (Study Revelations 11:) Satan has the whole world deceived; “manifesting himself and his followers as angels of light” Has Christendom populations “thinking of themselves as believers in Jesus.” The blind leading the blind. These types, “unbelievers” were prevalent during the time Paul was writing to the Corinthians.

      (2 Cor 11:13-15; “For such people are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. Therefore it is not surprising his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness, whose end will correspond to their actions.”)

      Claiming to believe in Jesus, most teachers with impressive credentials, “do believe Jesus lived and died for the sins of the world.” But not understanding the difference in: “believing that, opposed to believing IN.” (Thus, unbelievers are still about the business of selling a paganism mix with Jesus’ teaching and calling it Christian.) “Believing that” types attracted pagan populations by teaching a condoning of lawlessness. A somewhat rebellious to His Father, Jesus. A Jesus differing from the Lord God who taught that, “He and His Father were as One.”

      Believing that Jesus lived and died for the sins of the world, “without opposing all that’s an abomination to Him isn’t believing IN.” (Believers IN can’t continue the abominable fertility and sun worshiping customs pagans kept, honoring their gods by labeling them Christian.) The naïve “believing that” populations, desiring to be religious accepted the imposed pagan calendar that named week days for pagan gods and fitting it to sun worshiping practicing. Not understanding that such was detestable to God. Thus, this world’s so called Christendom populations believe in a Jesus that doesn’t exist. Jesus prophesied about this age. Study Matthew 24:.

      Just as, ”all have sinned” every individual inherited a lawlessness toward God nature that must be supernaturally changed. We all inherited a degree of hypocrisy. However there is a methodology to building principled fleshly character with integrity. Even high moral principles. Integrity can be developed in people “who aren’t believers in God as He manifest Himself to be in the holy scriptures.” But, fleshly methodologies can’t make a person good in God’s View. Methodically building good characteristics includes “a self serving vanity.” Also, a human condition that must be turned from. This was revealed to David and he prophesied.

      (Psalms: 53:1-7 “Fools say to themselves, “There is no God.” They sin and commit evil deeds; none of them does what is right. (in God’s View) The Lord looks down from heaven at the human race, to see if there is anyone who is wise and seeks God. (anyone taking it on themselves to seeks and know God’s Ways) Everyone rejects God; (substituting what seems right to the fleshly mind.) “thus” they are all morally corrupt. None of them does what is right, not even one! All those who behave wickedly do not understand – those who devour My people as if they were eating bread, and do not call out to the Lord. They are absolutely terrified, for God defends the godly. You want to humiliate the oppressed, even though the Lord is their shelter. (7) I wish the deliverance of Israel would come from Zion! When the Lord restores the well-being of His people, may Jacob rejoice, may Israel be happy!”) David’s wish will be fulfilled, our Deliverer will come from Zion.

      The point is: “no methodology promoting sincerity and integrity can make one a Christ like person. (One in whom God calls and gifts with spiritual comprehension; to trust in and live His Way.) Living life reflecting, a belief IN God as creator and lovingly practicing His Ways. Even Satan believes God is. Believing IN Christians have no problem believing John 1:1-5, Colossians 1:15-20 and Hebrews 1: These scriptures teach that Jesus created all things. Angelic being and Lucifer were created by Jesus! Believers IN have no problem believing that Lucifer rebelled, fought and was removed from the heavenly realms.

      The unbelieving “believers that” mind is likened to Cain’s. Who rather than believing IN God and submitting to His Way, make God out to one fitting his imagination. Cain thought, “surely this other way will please God.” Like Cain, unbelievers “believers that” imagine vain things and worship according to what seems right, intellectually. Satan rooted the modern day apostate in Cain’s path.

      (Jude 1:11-13; “Woe to them! For they have traveled down Cain’s path, and because of greed have abandoned themselves to Balaam’s error; hence, they will certainly perish in Korah’s rebellion. These men are dangerous reefs at your love feasts, feasting without reverence, feeding only themselves. They are waterless clouds, carried along by the winds; autumn trees without fruit – twice dead, uprooted; wild sea waves, spewing out the foam of their shame; wayward stars for whom the utter depths of eternal darkness have been reserved.”) Twice dead? These deceivers of people will die a second death. This is God’s righteous judgment. (see Rev 2:, 19: & 20:

      What was Cain’s path? He imagined God fitting his imagination. He assumed God would be pleased with his choice sacrifice. Professing “believers that” Christendom make the same assumption. God is not pleased when people choose to worship the way that seems right to their fleshly nature. Balaam’s error also revolved around his assumptions.

      (Jude 1:14-15; “Now Enoch, the seventh in descent beginning with Adam, even prophesied of them, saying, “Look! The Lord is coming with thousands and thousands of His holy ones, to execute judgment on all, and to convict every person of all their thoroughly ungodly deeds that they have committed, and of all the harsh words that ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.”) Long before the Noah age flood, God prophesied through Enoch about Christ’s second coming!

      (Jude 1:16 “These people are grumblers and fault-finders who go wherever their desires lead them, and they give bombastic speeches, enchanting folks to do according to their fleshly desires.”)  Is this not what people teaching a methodology to salvation do? Such people are in the world and of the world. Believers IN are in the world but not of the world! NOW understand, Jude is writing to Believers IN and himself a student of the apostles.

      (Jude 1:17-23; “But you, dear friends– recall the predictions foretold by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ. For they said to you, “In the end time there will come scoffers, propelled by their own ungodly desires.” These people are divisive, worldly, devoid of the Spirit. (20) But you, ‘followers of Jesus’ dear friends, by building yourselves up in your most holy faith, by praying in the Holy Spirit, maintain yourselves in the love of God, while anticipating the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that brings eternal life.(22) And have mercy on those who waver; save others by snatching them out of the fire; have mercy on others, coupled with a fear of God, hating even the clothes stained by the flesh.”)

     We Christians know our fleshly minds were carnal, sold on unrighteousness, doing what seemed right to that fleshly intellectual nature. The natural inherited fleshly mind rejects what God says is right, wrong, good and evil.

      (Jude 1:24-25; “Now to the One who is able to keep you from falling, and to cause you to stand rejoicing without blemish before His glorious presence, to the only God our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, power, and authority, before all time, and now, and for all eternity. Amen.”)

      We each need to meditate, study, ask for wisdom and understanding while looking at ourselves in Jesus’ spiritual mirror. Believers IN ask to be kept on God’s potters wheel. Ask to be lead by the Almighty. Realizing that God mercifully reveals Himself, otherwise a person could choose and be saved by works. Let us each pray that God lead us from the path Cain and Balaam took.

        Jesus said; “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.” Luke 10:18.) Satan’s removal was apparently violent and before Adam was created. Remember, all these things, “especially Israel’s history” is for our learning. God’s awesomeness includes the fact that He looks through this age, our trials, knowing our inherited nature and Satan’s influence. His looking forward includes when He will bring New Jerusalem to this earth and beyond. (see Rev 3:12 & 21:2) God is totally in charge and is only allowing Satan’s domination for the short haul. (For the time being, God is allowing people to live according to what seems right, “all for His own purpose.”) God is allowing Satan to be this world’s god. (For we Believers IN, “this is the overcoming age!”) Jesus’ leading Israel from Egyptian bondage is a foreshadowing of His delivering us from sin’s bondage. Allow Jesus’ teaching through His apostle Paul.

      (1 Cor 10:1-4; “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.”)

      This same Jesus, that saw Satan fall like lightening from the heavens, is the ROCK that communed with Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, created all things, led His chosen people Israel and is leading His called out ones today! That Rock is the Creator, Re-creator, Deliverer, Revealer, Redeemer, leading and giving Christians spiritual food. One day the whole world will understand this awesome truth!

      (1 Cor 10:5-11; “But God was not pleased with most of them, for they were cut down in the wilderness. These things happened as examples for us, so that we will not crave evil things as they did. So do not be idolaters, as some of them were. As it is written, “The people sat down to eat and drink and rose up to play.” And let us not be immoral, as some of them were, and twenty-three thousand died in a single day. And let us not put Christ to the test, as some of them did, and were destroyed by snakes. And do not complain, as some of them did, and were killed by the destroying angel.(11) These things happened to them as examples and were written for our instruction, on whom the ends of the ages have come.”)

      Part of the apostasy hinges on the fact that false apostles weren’t gifted to understand that the same Lord God that died for the sins of the world, is the Rock that led Israel from sinful Egyptian bondage.
