Jesus’ Gospel Revealed to Prophets, Apostles and Believers, chapter 19

(To 8,494 in resident churches: people God is making temples of His spirit.) 12/28/17,  God’s 10th month, Tevet 11, 5778 until sunset.

    According to John 15{18-27;  If the messenger, message and life style practices are popular in communities: “they aren’t representative of Jesus’ Truth.” Messengers and messages condoning various life styles practices and doctrines, demonstrate they’re from a fictional Jesus; “not the real Jesus.”

      (John 15:18-27; “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. 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. (21) But they will do all these things to you on account of My name, because they do not know the One who sent Me. 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. (24) 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. (25) Now this happened to fulfill the word that is written in their law, ‘They hated me without reason.” 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, (27) and you also will testify, because you have been with Me from the beginning.”)

       Advocate, “Helper” or “Counselor”; Greek “Paraclete, “suggest a helper rank with God the Father and God the Son.” “The Holy Spirit.” The Holy Spirit testifies about Jesus! (Net Bible Translators, attempting to clarify, take a different stance. They admit, “finding an exact English word is difficult “ that “no single English word has exactly the same range of meaning as the Greek word most translate “Comforter” used by the older English versions, “as Wycliffe.” In Today’s English “comforter” suggests a quilt or sympathetic mourner at a funeral. “Counselor” is adequate too, but they believe it too broad, in contexts as would be “marriage counselor” or “camp counselor.” “Helper or Assistant” could also be used, but believing a subordinate rank isn‘t adequate.. “Advocate,” is chosen by Net Bible translators, having more forensic overtones than the Greek suggest. In today’s English “advocate” is someone who “advocates” or supports a position or viewpoint and since this is what the Greek word “Paraclete” does for preaching the word, :advocate is selected in spite of drawbacks.”) We suggest, “Holy Spirit” is a better rendering than either of the above, “because when imputed to the mind it makes Believers IN. at one with God the Father and God the Son.” What better comfort, helper or advocate than that? The Holy Spirit, “ an advocate” wasn’t gifted on Pentecost.

       When people teaches for salary, parishioners must be pleased. Called by God people recognize truth is miraculously gifted through the imputation of God‘s spirit, and “are mindful that formal education can be a liability.” For the most part salaried - seminary trained teachers must support their denominational doctrine and the system of things condoned. (For example; “to speak out against the spiritual effects of overly indulging in popular sport’s could be detrimental to their vocation.”) Satan couldn’t be the god of this age if his deceptions weren’t loved by this world. Unbelievers are captivated by Satan’s many worldly system of things, “but not for much longer.” God’s Sabbaths foreshadows His coming “millennial Sabbath.”

      .(Revelations 20:1-3; “Then I saw an angel descending from heaven, holding in his hand the key to the abyss and a huge chain. He seized the dragon – the ancient serpent, who is the devil and Satan – and tied him up for a thousand years. The angel then threw him into the abyss and locked and sealed it so that he could not deceive the nations until the one thousand years were finished. (After these things he must be released for a brief period of time.)

       This earth is to be filled with the knowledge of God. Jesus set the stage for this understanding when He gave His parable about a wedding feast. (Restudy Matthew 22:13-14).Understanding this parable’s truth should give us knowledge about how to pray for the world at large.

      Since Adam people attempt to fit God into their fleshly way of thinking, inventing gods, setting aside times for them and inventing customs to honor their imaginary gods. The fertility god comes to mind; “remember it was Gregory that instituted the egg for Easter.” Because Satan and his followers manifest themselves as angels of light; “people are demonically led to ignore God’s Word, that characterizes God the Father and God the Son,” We looked at Isaiah 43: in a previous study, “that prophecy characterizes our Creator, as does Colossians 1:15-20, John 1:1-5 and Heb 1: In these scriptural text; “God characterizes Himself and His love for people made in His image” giving His righteous laws for our good.

       When our Creator God, “Lord and Savior Jesus” rested on the seventh day, He looked back at His creation, reflected and thought it good. He commanded His people to look back and forward, “reflect on  creation and rest.” Jesus’ followers are spirit led to reflect on and consider why we’re made in God’s image? Others don’t, “of their own accord” in part because they don’t believe IN God, as Creator. The world, ’influenced by Satan’ has distorted God’s Word regarding His creation, re-creation, sustaining and deliverance preplanning. (Distorted God’s prophetic Words through His prophets, about how and why the Son of God sacrificed Himself, “shed His blood for the remission of sins” so people, through Him could inherit eternal life.”) Demonstrating and proving Jesus’ love for His people was each apostle’s and is each Believer’s ambassadorial mission.

       (2 Cor 11:1-2; “I wish that you would be patient with me in a little foolishness, but indeed you are being patient with me! For I am jealous for you with godly jealousy, because I promised you in marriage to one husband, “Jesus” to present you as a pure virgin to Christ.”) Fleshly jealousy is self serving; godly jealousy is from within the gifted desire to build up. (A Believer IN - Christian’s life is as being married to Jesus and living as one with Him.) Believers IN are as, “one flesh and one mind with Jesus, as He intended Husband and wives marriages to be.”

      (2 Cor 11:3-4; “But I am afraid that just as the serpent deceived Eve by his treachery, your minds may be led astray from a sincere and pure devotion to Christ. For if someone comes and proclaims another Jesus different from the one we proclaimed, or if you receive a different spirit than the one you received, or a different gospel than the one you accepted, you put up with it well enough!”)

      Professing Christian denominations would all say “there is one Jesus while teaching differing perception.” Different perception makes for a different Jesus! NOT ONLY is it possible to believe lies, but it’s possible to be yielded to a harmful spirit and thus another Jesus! (There are many, “other Jesus’ in people’s understandings.) Jesus characterized Himself as the Son of God the Father. Though a Son, Jesus looked to God the Father, “careful not to even think of usurping His authority.” (See Philippians 2:3) Jesus inspired John and Paul to characterize Himself as Creator, Sustainer and the One in whom all things consist. (We repeat; “study John 1:1-5 & Colossians 1:15-20)

      (2Cor 11:5-15; “For I consider myself not at all inferior to those “super-apostles.” And even if I am unskilled in speaking, yet I am certainly not so in knowledge. Indeed, we have made this plain to you in everything in every way. (7) Or did I commit a sin by humbling myself so that you could be exalted, because I proclaimed the gospel of God to you free of charge? (8) I robbed other churches by receiving support from them so that I could serve you! When I was with you and was in need, I was not a burden to anyone, for the brothers who came from Macedonia fully supplied my needs. I kept myself from being a burden to you in any way, and will continue to do so. (10) As the truth of Christ is in me, this boasting of mine will not be stopped in the regions of Achaia. (11) Why? Because I do not love you? God knows I do! And what I am doing I will continue to do, so that I may eliminate any opportunity for those who want a CHANCE to be regarded as our equals in the things they boast about. (13) For such people are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. (14) And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. (15) Therefore it is not surprising his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness, whose end will correspond to their actions.”)

      When we understand God’s truth it’s incumbent on us to proclaim it, “unashamed and boldly.” It’s sinful to do otherwise! God knows our hearts and knows a deceiver’s tool is, “clever speech and the promotion of fleshly works” Many use charities that promote this world’s system of things, not build up honor to God.” If they do not teach this message it’s because there’s no light in them. (Many even proclaim, “the dead are looking down.”

       (Isaiah 8:19-22; “They, ’unbelievers’ will say to you, “Seek oracles at the pits used to conjure up underworld spirits, from the magicians who chirp and mutter incantations. Should people not seek oracles from their gods, by asking the dead about the destiny of the living?” (20) Then you must recall the Lord’s instructions and the prophetic testimony of what would happen. Certainly they say such things because their minds are spiritually darkened. (21) They, ’unbelievers’ will pass through the land destitute and starving. Their hunger will make them angry, and they will curse their king and their God as they look upward. When one looks out over the land, he sees distress and darkness, gloom and anxiety, darkness and people forced from the land.”

       (Isa 8:23-9:2; The gloom will be dispelled for those who were anxious. In earlier times He humiliated the land of Zebulun, and the land of Naphtali; but now He brings honor to the way of the sea, the region beyond the Jordan, and Galilee of the nations. (9:1-2) The people walking in darkness see a bright light; light shines on those who live in a land of deep darkness.

      (Isa 9:3-5; You, ’Jesus’ have enlarged the nation; You give them great joy. They rejoice in Your presence as harvesters rejoice; as warriors celebrate when they divide up the plunder. For their, ’unbeliever’s’ oppressive yoke and the club that strikes their shoulders, the cudgel the oppressor uses on them, You have shattered, as in the day of Midian’s defeat. Indeed every boot that marches and shakes the earth and every garment dragged through blood is used as fuel for the fire.

      (Isaiah 9:6-7; For a child has been born to us, a Son has been given to us. He shoulders responsibility and is called: Extraordinary Strategist, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

      “His dominion will be vast and he will bring immeasurable prosperity. He will rule on David’s throne and over David’s kingdom, establishing it and strengthening it

by promoting justice and fairness, from this time forward and forevermore. The Lord’s intense devotion to His people will accomplish this.”) This are what God’s Sabbaths foreshadow!
