God’s Truth Explored, chapter 21

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2018

To: “10,720 Churches of God” people desiring to be “At One with God.” 5/2/18, God’s 2nd month, Iyar17, 5778 until sunset.

       The only true God is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob “whose name God changed to Israel.” The word Israel meaning, “God fights.” Followers of Jesus are spiritual Israelites. See Gal 3:29) The same Roman hijackers that designed a calendar to appease gentile and professing Christians attempts to lead both from things holy to God and His people. From times, laws and ways God put in place for the good of His people.

       The Lord God ‘Jesus’ fought for Israel, giving them pagan people’s lands, victory in battles, blessed their children, crops and protecting them from diseases. After Moses and Joshua the stubborn Israelites soon wanted a king like the pagans. The Lord God ‘Jesus’ revealed why He blessed Israel and why He is blessing spiritual Israelites in this latter day age.

       (Deut 7:7-11; It is not because you were more numerous than all the other peoples that the Lord favored and chose you – for in fact you were the least numerous of all peoples. Rather it is because of His love for you and His faithfulness to the promise He solemnly vowed to your ancestors that the Lord brought you out with great power, redeeming you from the place of slavery, from the power of Pharaoh king of Egypt. So realize that the Lord your God is the true God, the faithful God who keeps covenant faithfully with those who love Him and keep His commandments, to a thousand generations, but who pays back those who hate Him as they deserve and destroys them. He will not ignore those who hate Him but will repay them as they deserve! So keep the commandments, statutes, and ordinances that I today am commanding you to do.”) God’ doesn’t change; spiritual Israelites are promised like blessings.

       (Deut 8:18-20; You must remember the Lord your God, for He is the One who gives ability to get wealth; if you do this He will confirm His covenant that He made by oath to your ancestors, even as He has to this day. Now if you forget the Lord your God at all and follow other gods, worshiping and prostrating yourselves before them, I testify to you today that you will surely be annihilated. Just like the nations the Lord is about to destroy from your sight, so He will do to you because you would not obey Him.”)

       The facts are, “God will allow Satan’s deceptions and unbelieving people go the way that seems right until Jesus’ returns to rule and bind Satan.” Many will then be led to understand their previous erroneous way of living and turn to our Creator, “Jesus.” However God is NOW, calling out a people of His choosing and giving spiritual understanding to recognize our inherited from Adam nature and He gifts us with a desire to turn. (Remember; Jesus’ apostles’ letters are to called out Believers IN)

      (1Corinthians 2:6-10; ““Now we, “apostles” do speak wisdom among the mature, but not a wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are perishing. Instead we speak the wisdom of God, hidden in a mystery, that God determined before the ages for our glory. (8) None of the rulers of this age understood it. If they had known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. But just as it is written, “Things that no eye has seen, or ear heard, or mind imagined, are the things God has prepared for those who love Him.” (A quote from Isaiah 64:4) (10) God has revealed these to “we Believers IN” by the Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.””)

       Be reminded again, Jesus’ apostles letters are to called out followers of Jesus, “His church.” Jesus, nor His apostles expected unbelievers to understand, “because spiritual understanding is gifted.” Prepared for who? Those led to love God and His Way! Loving God includes loving His ten commandments! Those to whom God Isn’t revealed, ‘unbelievers’ do not understand, which may ultimately be for their good. Why? A great physical resurrection is preplanned, “during Jesus’ millennial RULE.” (See Revelations 21:8)

      (1Cor 2:11-16; “For who among men knows the things of a man except the man’s spirit within him? So too, no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. Now we “Believers IN” have NOT received the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things that are freely given to us by God. And we, “Believers/Christians” speak about these things, NOT with words taught us by human wisdom, but with those taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual things to spiritual people. THE unbeliever does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him. And he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned. (15) The one who is spiritual discerns all things, yet he himself is understood by no one. (We can’t understands from within the flesh!) For who has known the mind of the Lord, so as to advise Him? But we “Christians” have the mind of Christ.”)

      Understand, this world’s populations are exactly as the Pharisees “who wanted Jesus out of the way!” Except it be revealed, NO one understands the goodness of God’s Way and His purpose.

      (John 11:45-53; “Then many of the people, who had come with Mary and had seen the things Jesus did, believed in Him. But some of them “unbelievers” went to the Pharisees and reported to them what Jesus had done. So the chief priests and the Pharisees called the council together and said, “What are we doing? For this man is performing many miraculous signs. If we allow Him to go on in this way, everyone will believe IN Him, and the Romans will come and take away our sanctuary and our nation.” (49) Then one of them, Caiaphas, who was high priest that year, said, “You know nothing at all! You do not realize that it is more to your advantage to have one man die for the people than for the whole nation to perish.” (51) (Now he “Caiaphas” did not say this on his own, but because he was high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus was going to die for the Jewish nation, and not for the Jewish nation only, but to gather together into one the children of God who are scattered.) (53) So from that day they planned together to kill Him.”) Jesus is going to gather scattered Israelites, “heirs of Abraham.” See Isa 22:, 35: , 51: -53:, 65:. Jeremiah 31:. Amos 9:11-15.

      ONLY because Caiaphas was appointed high priest that year; did he receive revelation to prophesy about Jesus’ coming to gather God’s scattered children! Jesus too prophesied about HIS followers in this age before His return.

      (Matthew 24:9-14; “Then they “unbelievers” will hand you, “Believers” over to be persecuted and will kill you. You will be hated by all the nations because of My name. Then many will be led into sin, and they will betray one another and hate one another. And many false prophets will appear and deceive many, and because lawlessness will increase so much, the love of many will grow cold. (13) But the person who endures to the end will be saved. (14) And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached throughout the whole inhabited earth as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come.”) See Revelations 11:.

      Jesus’ good news is about His kingdom being established, “Believers IN need spiritual help to endure to the end.” (Study all of Matthew 24: often. For this study we skip to verse 36.)

      (Matt 24:36-41; “But as for that day and hour no one knows it – not even the angels in heaven – except the Father alone. For just like the days of Noah were, so the coming of the Son of Man will be. For in those days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day Noah entered the ark. And they knew nothing until the flood came and took them all away. It will be the same at the coming of the Son of Man. Then there will be two men in the field; one will be taken and one left. There will be two women grinding grain with a mill; one will be taken and one left.”)

      NOTE it’s at Jesus’ coming that “one is left and another taken.” People who do not believe Jesus’ words about the days of Noah’s flood are those to whom God has not revealed Himself!

      (Matt 24:42-44; “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.””)

      To each of the seven churches Jesus said “he that overcomes to the end.“ See Revelations 2: &3: Jesus’ revelation to John is, “he that overcomes to the end shall be saved.” When we examine the history of people, clans and nations, it’s evident that when left to go the way that seems right, “division, war and chaos is the result.” So it is with each individual. May we individually seek an intimate relationship with God the Father and God the Son. May we be spiritually led to love His Way.

 

God’s Truth Explored, chapter 20

Tuesday, May 1st, 2018

To: “10,699 Churches of God” people desiring to be “At One with God.” 5/1/18, God’s 2nd month, Iyar16, 5778 until sunset. (see God’s full moon)

       One of Satan’s primary successes was to alter God’s calendar through unscrupulous men, using Jesus’ name to build an organizational mix of pagan and Judaism practices. Gentile calendars had long before been designed for sun, planetary and imaginary god worship. Sun worshipers designed calendars around the winter equinox; “supposing their worship caused the sun‘s return and days to be lengthened again.” To attract pagan cultures the Roman hijackers of God’s truth adapted a similar calendar.  

      God set His people apart purposely. Telling Moses and the Israelites, “Passover was to be on the 14th day of their first month.” (Without a remembrance of the significance of the Lord God’s Passover as prescribed, much of God’s truth is camouflaged.) On that day Israelites’ firstborn’s were saved from a plague on Egypt, “God ordaining a death of their firstborns.” By putting lamb or goat blood on their door facings the Lord God had the death angel Passover Israelite dwellings. This looked forward to the Lamb of God shedding His blood for the remission of the world’s sins. Shedding blood is to shed life. Thus the Lord God, “our Creator, re-Creator, Sustainer and life giver” gave His life. (He was miraculously born of a virgin and exemplified God the Father in all His ways; by choice “as the Lamb of God” Jesus shed His innocent blood for the remission of sin. By not remembering Passover and God’s annual Sabbath seasons the world looses knowledge of His planning. Knowledge that “Eternal life is only through Creator and Sustainer Jesus.”

      Satan inspired hijackers of God’s way to develop a substitute calendar that is still causing the many to set aside pagan times and traditions, rather than God ordained ones. In so doing, God’s commandments and oracles are camouflaged. Knowledge of eternal life through believing IN Jesus and clothing ourselves in Him is camouflaged when abominable pagan practices are prioritized. Professing Christianity is going down the same road the Israelites traveled, causing God to scatter them among the pagan nations.

      When we examine history of people, clans and nations, it’s evident that when left to go the way that seems right, “division, war and chaos is the result.” So it is individually! (We are made in the image and likeness of our Creator for the ultimate purpose of being made in His image spiritually.) That is, “to inherit eternal life through believing IN Jesus!” Mankind’s history is proof, “without our Creator’s personal intervention, individuals, clans and nations go the way of divisionary choices.” Why? “it’s natural when people don’t acknowledge our Creator’s planning foreshadowed in His calendar.”

      (All the people on earth had rejected God’s Way and were going the way that seemed right to their inherited fleshly intellect, “including Israelites” before God called Moses to lead them “by promise to Abraham.” Later when Israel was in rebellion, God gave Jeremiah the mission of evaluating His people.

      (Jeremiah 6:27-30; The Lord said to me, “I have made you like a metal assayer to test My people like ore. You are to observe them and evaluate how they behave.” I reported, “All of them are the most stubborn of rebels! They are as hard as bronze or iron. They go about telling lies. They all deal corruptly. The fiery bellows of judgment burn fiercely. But there is too much dross to be removed. The process of refining them has proved useless. The wicked have not been purged. (30) They are regarded as ‘rejected silver’ because the Lord rejects them.”)

       This describes each of us individually, before God’s personal attention, intervention, calling, opening our minds to understand our inherited nature’s pull and it’s result. Here’s the foundation of psychology! Except God personally intervenes, “our fleshly inherited from Adam characteristics lead us to live a rebellion toward God life style!” When our Creator isn’t personally revealing Himself and leading, individuals, clans and nation, live as if there is no Lawgiver teaching right, wrong, good and evil! Thus, “until God reveals Himself, all people live, “as in hiding from the reality of His judgment.” The proof is obvious when we look at this world’s condition and from God’s prophetic Word. Jesus inspired the same spiritual rationale through Isaiah.

      (Isaiah 29:15-16; “Those who try to hide their plans from the Lord are as good as dead, who do their work in secret and boast, ‘Who sees us?’ Who knows what we’re doing?” Your thinking is perverse! Should the Potter “Creator” be regarded as clay? (created) Should the thing made say about its maker, ‘He didn’t make me?’ Or should the pottery, “the created” say about the Potter, “Creator” “He doesn’t understand?”)

       It’s the outlook, the psychology of mankind, in this demonically led age! The whole world has turned to the god of this age. Fleshly people only understand things of the flesh. Looking to fleshly leaders, politicians and teachers.

      (Proverbs 29:26-27; “Many people seek the face of a ruler, but it is from the Lord that one receives justice. An unjust person is an abomination to the righteous, and the one who lives an upright life is an abomination to the wicked.”)

       Because of our inherited nature and Satan’s deceptions, people aren’t inclined to naturally prove God; rather, they naturally make Him out to be, “one likened to their personal imagination.” It isn’t any different than people carving wooden images to worship!” Jesus’ apostle Paul explained.

      (Romans 8:5-17; “For those who live according to the flesh have their outlook shaped by the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit have their outlook shaped by the things of the Spirit. For the outlook of the flesh is death, but the outlook of the Spirit is life and peace, because the outlook of the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to the law of God, nor is it able to do so. (8) Those who are in the flesh cannot please God. You, “followers of Jesus” however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, this person does not belong to Him. But if Christ is in you, your body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is your life because of “Jesus‘” righteousness. Moreover if the Spirit of the One who raised Jesus from the dead lives in you, the One who raised Christ from the dead will also make your mortal bodies alive through His Spirit who lives in you. (12) So then, brothers and sisters, we, “Christians” are under obligation, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh (for if you live according to the flesh, you will die), but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body you will live. (14) For all who are led by the Spirit of God are the sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of slavery leading again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption, by whom we cry, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit its self bears witness to our spirit that we are God’s children. And if children, then heirs (namely, heirs of God and also fellow heirs with Christ) – if indeed we suffer with Him so we may also be glorified with Him.”)

      Likely, unbelievers are about 99.9% of this world’s population and Solomon understood the key reason. When people aren’t punished soon after committing wrong, they assume God is looking the other way.

       (Eccl 8:11-14;“When a sentence is not executed at once against a crime, the human “fleshly” heart is encouraged to do evil. Even though a sinner might commit a hundred crimes and still live a long time, yet I know that it will go well with God-fearing people – for they stand in fear before Him. But it will not go well with the wicked, nor will they prolong their days like a shadow, because they do not stand in fear before God.” Here is another enigma that occurs on earth: Sometimes there are righteous people who get what the wicked deserve, and sometimes there are wicked people who get what the righteous deserve. I said, “This also is an enigma.”)

      When our Creator isn’t personally intervening and people allowed to go the way that seems right to their fleshly inherited nature; this is the result.
