At One with God the Father and God the Son, chapter 7

To 10,089, Churches of God “A people being made temples of His spirit.” 3/22/18  God’s 1st month, Nisan 6, 5778 until sunset.

      Next Thursday at sunset begins Passover and Friday sunset begins the 15th day of Nisan, “a weekly and the first annual Sabbath of the year.” Hijackers of  Christendom “Jesus’ good news” named days of the week after pagan gods. (Thursday” literally means Thor’s day.” The mythology: “ruler of Aesir, supreme god of war, poetry, knowledge and wisdom. Husband of Frigg, “to which he gave an eye.”)

        No wonder the God of Abraham: “Israel’s God isn’t worshiped supreme.” Satan influenced the hijackers’ attempt “to worship all god’s.” Nisan is God’s first month.

(Lev 23:4-8; “‘These are the Lord’s appointed times, holy assemblies, which you must proclaim at their appointed time. In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month, at twilight, is a Passover offering to the Lord. Then on the fifteenth day of the same month will be the festival of unleavened bread to the Lord; seven days you must eat unleavened bread. On the first day there will be a holy assembly for you; you must not do any regular work. You must present a gift to the Lord for seven days, and the seventh day is a holy assembly; you must not do any regular work.’”)

        As the spiritual component of circumcision is, “circumcision of heart“ the spiritual component of eating unleavened bread, “removing leavening” is, “putting away sin.” The “Unleavened Bread festival, “was to rid homes and the body of that which puffs up.” Physical Israelites needed a guardian to keep them focused. (They as do children and unconverted adults “need a guardian - a schoolmaster” today also.) Jesus‘ new commandment, which He said wasn‘t new at all: “love God with your whole heart and neighbor as self“ only replaces the guardian “law“ for recipients of His Holy Spirit. Allow Paul‘s explanation. .

       (Galatians 3:23-29; “Now before, ‘Jesus’’ faith ’or faith in Jesus’ came we were held in custody under the law, being kept as prisoners, ‘in custody’ until the coming faith would be revealed. (24) Thus the law had become our guardian until Christ, so that we could be declared righteous by faith. (25) But now that faith has come, we, ’followers of Jesus’ are no longer under a guardian. For in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God through faith. (27) For all of you who were baptized, ’immersed’  into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female – for all of you are One in Christ Jesus. (29) And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to the promise.”)

      Unconverted Israelites should remove leavening from their homes. Before Jesus’ faith was gifted to us individually, “we were and the whole world is” under God’s law. Paul is writing to God’s church, “not the world at large.” Until the Son of God and God the father are revealed individually, “people are subject to and ’under’ God’s law” as is a student to a guardian. We Believers IN Jesus are no longer under the law because “in Christ Jesus we are sons of God.” As children of God we inherit His characteristics. When the love of Jesus is imputed to our minds, “so is a love of His spiritual law.”

        Jesus, His prophets and apostles’ good news is: One day the whole world will understand that the same Jesus that came in the flesh and died for the remission of the world’s sins, “created, re-created, sustains and “through Him is life” He wrote the ten commandments with His own finger. (He being the God that doesn’t change, “the same yesterday, today and forever” NEVER gave authority for a Sabbath change.)

       This earth’s movement, the sun’s temperature, sea level etc. were created and are sustained by Jesus. (Study John 1:1-5, Hebrews 1:1-4: the whole chapter actually and Colossians 1:15-20.) Followers of Jesus, “Christians” worship our Creator, “rather than His creation.” Unbelievers, practicing idolatrous paganism look to what seems right. (For example the pagan Druids are defined as, “modern follower of ancient Celtic religion: a people worshiping and celebrates the forces of nature.” Many professing Christians still practice those customs laid down by these groups; “worshiping the gods our week days are named after.”

      Followers of Jesus are spiritually led to go before the throne of our Creator God in prayer, to; (“Mount Zion, the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to myriads of angels, to the assembly, congregation of the firstborn who are enrolled in heaven, to God, the judge of all, to the spirits of the righteous, who are being made perfect, to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant and to the sprinkled blood that speaks of something better than Abel’s does.”) (Hebrews 12:22-24)

      From Hebrews 12:1-6 we discern; “By the faith of Jesus in us, we know through His revelations, ‘as did His apostles’ that we are gifted with immortality through Jesus and AS SUCH WE ARE; (“surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, we must get rid of every weight and the sin that clings so closely, and run with endurance the race set out for us, keeping our eyes fixed on Jesus, the Pioneer and Perfecter of our faith.) For the joy set out for Him He endured the cross, disregarding its shame, and has taken His seat at the right hand of the throne of God.

       WE “followers of Jesus” should, (Heb 12:3-6; “Think of Him who endured such opposition against Himself by sinners, so that you, “WE” may not grow weary in our being and give up. You, “WE” have not yet resisted to the point of bloodshed in your, “OUR” struggle against sin. And have you forgotten the exhortation addressed to you as sons? “My son, do not scorn the Lord’s discipline or give up when He corrects you.For the Lord disciplines the one He loves and chastises every son He accepts.”) (Quote from Prov 3:11-12)

       Knowing Jesus’ words, “no servant is greater than his master” we count the cost.

       (Hebrews 12:7-13; “Endure your suffering as discipline; God is treating you as sons. For what son is there that a father does not discipline? But if you do not experience discipline, something all sons have shared in, then you are illegitimate and are not sons. Besides, we have experienced discipline from our earthly fathers and we respected them; shall we not submit ourselves all the more to the Father of spirits and receive life? For they disciplined us for a little while as seemed good to them, but He does so for our benefit, that we may share His holiness. Now all discipline seems painful at the time, not joyful. But later it produces the fruit of peace and righteousness for those trained by it. Therefore, strengthen your listless hands and your weak knees, and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be put out of joint but be healed.”)

       The vast majority of this world’s populations, including professing Christians, do not believe IN God as Creator, “as He manifest Himself to be in the holy scriptures” thus they are not Believers IN.” The vast majority using Jesus’ name, are NOT Christ like.

       (John 6:28-33; “So then they said to Him, “What must we do to accomplish the deeds God requires?” Jesus replied, “This is the deed God requires – to believe IN the One whom He sent.” So they said to Him, “Then what miraculous sign will You perform, so that we may see it and believe You? What will You do? Our ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness, just as it is written, ‘He gave them bread from heaven to eat.’”(32) Then Jesus told them, “I tell you the solemn truth, it is NOT Moses who has given you the bread from heaven, but My Father is giving you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is the One who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.”

      (John 6:34-40; So they said to Him, “Sir, give us this bread all the time! Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. The one who comes to Me will never go hungry, and the one who believes IN Me will never be thirsty. (36) But I told you that you have seen Me and still do not believe. Everyone whom the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will never send away. For I have come down from heaven not to do My own will but the will of the One who sent Me. (39) Now this is the will of the One who sent Me – that I should not lose one person of every one He has given Me, but raise them all up at the last day. For this is the will of My Father – for everyone who looks on the Son and believes IN Him to have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.”)

       Jesus’ good news is about our believing IN Him “for the remission of sin, for the gift of eternal life - immortality.” About our living a submissive to God life, our being perfected to His spiritual image and resurrection. About believing Satan will be bound, Jesus and His Saints millennial rule, peace, righteous judgment, a new heaven and earth.

      Jesus revealed to His apostle Paul and he wrote for our understanding.

      (1 Corinthians 15:12-28; “Now if Christ is being preached as raised from the dead, how can some of you say there is no resurrection of the dead? (How is it, some say “every one is born immortal.” The good go to heaven and the bad to hell.) 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. (16) 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. (18) 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.”

      (1Cor 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. (24) Then comes the end, when He, “Jesus” hands over the kingdom to God the Father, when He, “Jesus” 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. (26) 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, “God the Father” who put everything in subjection to Him, “Jesus.” (28) And when all things are subjected to Him, “God the Father” then the Son Himself will be subjected to the One who subjected everything to Him, so that God may be all in all.”) This is the Good News all Christians Believe IN.

      (Matthew 24:42-47; “Therefore stay alert, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have been alert and would not have let his house be broken into. Therefore you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect Him. “Who then is the faithful and wise slave, whom the master has put in charge of his household, to give the other slaves their food at the proper time? Blessed is that slave whom the master finds at work when he comes. I tell you the truth, the Master will put him in charge of all His possessions.”)

      When Jesus died, “miraculous things took place.” The world was shown the power of God and a glimpse of the coming physical resurrections.”

      (Matt 27:45-53; “Now from noon until three, darkness came over all the land. At about three o’clock Jesus shouted with a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” that is, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” When some of the bystanders heard it, they said, “This man is calling for Elijah.” Immediately one of them ran and got a sponge, filled it with sour wine, put it on a stick, and gave it to Him to drink. But the rest said, “Leave Him alone! Let’s see if Elijah will come to save Him.” Then Jesus cried out again with a loud voice and gave up His spirit. Just then the temple curtain was torn in two, from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks were split apart. And tombs were opened, and the bodies of many Saints who had died were raised. (They came out of the tombs after His resurrection and went into the holy city and appeared to many people.)

        Jesus revealed to His apostle John and he recorded for our revelation.

       (Revelations 21:5-8; “And the One seated on the throne said: “Look! I am making all things new!” Then He said to me, “Write it down, because these words are reliable and true.” He also said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the one who is thirsty I will give water free of charge from the spring of the water of life. The one who conquers will inherit these things, and I will be his God and he will be My son. But to the cowards, unbelievers, detestable persons, murderers, the sexually immoral, and those who practice magic spells, idol worshipers, and all those who lie, their place will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur. That is the second death.”)

       Jesus our Creator, Sustainer of all things is the Architect, the Alpha and Omega, whose plans will not be thwarted.
