The Gospel, chapter 31 of 31

To: God’s Elect: grace and peace from God our Father and our Lord Jesus. (11/28/18. God’s 9th month, Kislev 20th day, 5779, until sunset.)

Biblical chronology and the Judean calendar agree that Adam’s creation was about 5,780 years ago and today’s science news is reporting that all people came from a single man and woman union but irrational science don’t want to admit that God did the creating. The whole world is purposely anti God, because to admit He is as His Word professes Him to be would demand accountability The facts are, Creator, Re-Creator, Sustainer, Deliverer, and Savior Jesus is going to return; then the whole world will ultimately become accountable. This earth was purposely flooded before the re-creation Jesus performed as written in Genesis 1:. Creators God the Father and Jesus “God the Son” lovingly planned to increase their family through “life giver Jesus” as promised in the New Testament. (See Colossians 1:15-20.) Creator Jesus’ prophesied through His apostle Paul about false science and teaching.

Teach them and exhort them about these things. (1Tim 6:3-19; “If someone spreads false teachings and does not agree with sound words (that is, those of our Lord Jesus Christ) and with the teaching that accords with godliness, he is conceited and understands nothing, but has an unhealthy interest in controversies and verbal disputes. This gives rise to envy, dissension, slanders, evil suspicions, (5) and constant bickering by people corrupted in their minds and deprived of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a way of making a profit. Now godliness combined with contentment brings great profit. For we have brought nothing into this world and so we cannot take a single thing out either. But if we have food and shelter, we will be satisfied with that.” (Profit is made by people teaching a false science claiming global warming is man made and the doctrine of evolution. One erupting volcanic eruption puts more carbon out than humanity could in a year.)

 

v9-11; “Those who long to be rich, however, stumble into temptation and a trap and many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. (10) For the love of money is the root of all evils. Some people in reaching for it have strayed from the faith and stabbed themselves with many pains. But you, as a person dedicated to God, keep away from all that. Instead pursue righteousness, endurance, godliness, faithfulness, love and gentleness.” v12-15; “Compete well for the faith and lay hold of that eternal life you were called for and made your good confession for in the presence of many witnesses. I charge you before God who gives life to all things and Christ Jesus who made His good confession before Pontius Pilate, to obey this command without fault or failure until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, whose appearing the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords, will reveal at the right time.”

 

v16-19; “Jesus alone possesses immortality and lives in unapproachable light, whom no human has ever seen or is able to see. To him be honor and eternal power! Amen. (17) Command those who are rich in this world’s goods not to be haughty or to set their hope on riches, which are uncertain, but on God who richly provides us with all things for our enjoyment. Tell them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, to be generous givers, sharing with others. (19) In this way they will save up a treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the future and so lay hold of what is truly life.”

 

“Through His apostle Peter, Jesus compared the many false denominational leaders to irrational animals who are born to be caught and killed, “these will be destroyed when Jesus returns.” (See 2 Pet 2:12). Jude wrote, “false teachers will be destroyed for mimicking animals.” Shame on today’s cowardly professing Christian clergy, who follow popular tradition, rather than teaching the holy scriptures.”

(Jude 1:11; “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.”) Cain and Korah reasoned, “Surely God is pleased with me doing, “the way that seems right.” (Jude 1:12-13; “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? Their fate is already determined, feeding themselves; making merchandise of people and teaching traditionalism!. Jude believes a second death await these clergy types, for feeding only themselves. (See Revelation 2:11, 20:6, 20:14)

(Revelations 21:7-8; “The one who conquers will inherit these things, and I will be his God and he will be My child. 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.”) Long before the Noah day flood, Enoch was teaching about 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 the Lord.” 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.”) Apparently Jude had access to Enoch’s writing. Enoch was Cain’s son. (See Genesis 4:7)

(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.”

(2 Peter 3:2-3; “I want you to recall both the predictions foretold by the holy prophets and the commandment of the Lord and Savior through your apostles. Above all, understand this: In the last days blatant scoffers will come, being propelled by their own evil urges and saying, “Where is Jesus’ promised return?) These people are divisive, worldly, devoid of the Spirit. But you, 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. 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.”) Clothes stained by the flesh is spiritual terminology, as “being clothed with Christ and putting on Christ. Many that desire to be Christ like, are stained by fleshly desires; in that fleshly desires overpowers what they know to be true. To be clothed with Christ is to practice ways pleasing to Him.

(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”) Our English dictionary defines Apostate as “renouncing belief or allegiance. According to Luke, John the Baptist announced his allegiance to Jesus, saying, “One more powerful than I am is coming – I am not worthy to untie the strap of His sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. His winnowing fork is in His hand to clean out His threshing floor and to gather the wheat into His storehouse, but the chaff He will burn up with inextinguishable fire.” (Luke 3:15-20) We know John was imprisoned and beheaded for telling Herod and Herodias, “Herod’s brother’s wife” they were wrong to be living together and the evil deeds Herod had done.

 

John prophesied that through Jesus, the holy spirit would immerse “baptize” some and others with fire. The world is “Jesus’ threshing floor.” Wheat represents Jesus’ followers and the chaff, unbelievers who will be burned up, “die a second death” unless they turn to God. Organized religions that call themselves Christian renounced Jesus, when they introduced pagan customs to God’s church; when they taught, “God allowed a weekly Sabbath change, when they forsook His annual Sabbaths that foreshadow His plan for our saving.” In Jesus millennial reign His weekly and annual Sabbaths will be acknowledged. (Study Zechariah 14:)

 

Jesus’ good news began when He commanded Adam and Eve, not to eat fruit from a particular tree less they die, “how to avoid eternal death.” Their disobedience caused their descendents to inherit a sin nature, which must be turned from through Jesus’ faith, to inherit immortality. A proper sacrifice that looked to Jesus’ shed blood for the remission of sin was commanded. To unbelievers Jesus said; (Matt 23:34-36; “For this reason I am sending you prophets and wise men and experts in the law, some of whom you will kill and crucify, and some you will flog in your synagogues and pursue from town to town, (35) so that on you will come all the righteous blood shed on earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah son of Barachiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar. I tell you the truth, this generation will be held responsible for all these things!”) Speaking to Believers through Paul, Jesus references our prayers, liking them to the Israelites during their deliverance.

(Heb 12:22-29; “But you ’Believers’ have come to Mount Zion, the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to myriads of angels, to the assembly and congregation of the firstborn, who are enrolled in heaven, and to God, the judge of all, and to the spirits of the righteous, who have been made perfect, and to Jesus, the Mediator of a New Covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks of something better than Abel’s does.” Abel’s shed blood cried out to the Lord for justice and judgment, but Jesus’ blood speaks of redemption and forgiveness, something better than Abel’s does (Gen 4:10; Heb 9:11-14; 11:4).

v25-29; Take care not to refuse the One who is speaking! For if they did not escape when they refused the One who warned them on earth, how much less shall we, if we reject the One who warns from heaven? (26) Then His voice shook the earth, but now He has promised, “I will once more shake not only the earth but heaven too.” (Quote from Haggai 2:6.) Jesus is the Son used by the Father to enact a New Covenant which established a new relationship between God the Father and His people, entirely on God’ the Father’s terms.

v 27-29 “Now this phrase “once more” indicates the removal of what is shaken, that is, of created things, so that what is unshaken may remain. So since we are receiving an unshakable kingdom, let us give thanks, and through this let us offer worship pleasing to God in devotion and awe. For our God is indeed a devouring fire.” (Quote from Deut 4:24; & 9:3.)
