Mockeries of Truth, chapter 2

6/28/19, God’s 3rd month, 25th day of Sivan 5,779 until sunset. 

To: 18,012 subscribers: people called to be atOne with God the Father and God the Son.  “Heirs with Abraham.

It was the 10th day of Nisan: “God’s 1st month” when Jesus humbly allowed Himself to be as “caged in” Jerusalem, willingly allow Himself to be sacrificed for our sins on the 14th day and be entombed before sunset beginning the 15th “God’s 1st annual Sabbath of the year.” God the Father and God the Son preplanned the event to the very time of day. Exactly foreshadowed in Egypt when through Moses Jesus had the Israelites put up a lamb or goat on the 10th day to be sacrificed on the 14th and they leave Egypt on the 15th day of Nisan, “God’s 1st annual Sabbath of the year.” It was and is the Passover season. The world will look to these dates during Jesus’ millennial rule on earth as preplanned. It’s only part of the good news about the kingdom of God.

By God’s calling and Abraham believing IN, he was delivered from darkness to light. Our Creator, “who cannot lie, made promises of deliverance to Abraham’s physical and spiritual descendents; through The Descendent, “Jesus.“” (Review, John 1:1-5, Colossians 1:15-20 & Hebrews 1: & 2)Jesus is identified as Re-Creator, Creator, Sustainer, Deliverer, Mediator and King of Kings. The Father purposely sent His willing Son to live in the flesh, be our sacrificial Lamb and shed His blood, “so the world’s sins could be remitted through Him.” Jesus is now serving as our Mediator until the appointed time of His return as king of kings. We who know we’re created in God’s image, “know not to look else where for knowledge regarding, what is right, wrong, good and evil.” Satan couldn’t make deceptive inroads if people believed IN creation and looked to God for knowledge.

Satan’s deceiving this world’s populations will ultimately play into God’s hands. When minds are opened and Satan identified as the culprit, “who deceived the whole world.” Then many will be gifted with remorseful repentance. Satan’s tempting Eve was only his first act, but the major one causing people’s disobedience. His causing Adam and Eve’s disobedience made all pro-created people to be born with a sin nature. Thus from the beginning “The Sacrificial Lamb’s Work was planned.” God always looked forward to creating a spiritual people that would be atOne with Himself. Lets review Jesus’ revelations to Paul, sharing His purpose and what ours should be.

(Philippians 2:1-8; “Therefore, if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort provided by love, any fellowship in the Spirit, any affection or mercy, complete my joy and be of the same mind, by having the same love, being united in spirit, and having one purpose. Instead of being motivated by selfish ambition or vanity, each of you should, in humility, be moved to treat one another as more important than yourself. Each of you should be concerned not only about your own interests, but about the interests of others as well. You should have the same attitude toward one another that Christ Jesus had, who though He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God, “the Father” as something to be grasped, but emptied Himself by taking on the form of a slave, by looking like other men, and by sharing in human nature. He humbled Himself, by becoming obedient to the point of death – even death on a cross!”)

Jesus, His apostles, nor do any followers of Jesus, “think to independently decide for themselves, what’s, right, wrong, good and evil.”

(Phil 2:9-11; “As a result God exalted Jesus and gave Him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow – in heaven and on earth and under the earth – and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father.”) God the Father made God the Son “The Alpha and Omega, sharing all His attributes” so He’d be Lord of Lords.

(Phil 2:12-13; So then, my dear friends, just as you have always obeyed, not only in my presence but even more in my absence, continue working out your salvation with awe and reverence, for the One bringing forth in you both the desire and the effort – for the sake of His good pleasure – is God.”) Worldly denominations don’t get it, did you? When we believe IN these things, know “God gave the desire and effort for the sake of His good pleasure.” Know you didn’t acquire Jesus’ faith of your own accord! There’s no methodology, your desire isn’t conjured up nor sold to you by someone.

Know too, “it may be impossible to sincerely ask God to be kept on His Potter’s wheel for His purpose, except He give the desire.” The natural worldly way to mentally seek a god of one’s imagination through a denomination of choice, “a fitting comfort zone that makes one feel good about their decision.” Such worship isn’t of God’s doing. To the fleshly mind it’s natural to lean to one’s own understanding, learn from environment, tradition, educators and parents. Generally political correctness is acceptable to the fleshly mind. From these foundations Satan has field days, promoting division. Jesus taught this truth through James, “again, lets review.”

(James 4:1-5; “Where do the conflicts and where do the quarrels among you come from? Is it not from this, from your passions that battle inside you? You desire and you do not have; you murder and envy and you cannot obtain; you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask; you ask and do not receive because you ask wrongly, so you can spend it on your passions. Adulterers, do you not know that friendship with the world means hostility toward God? So whoever decides to be the world’s friend makes himself God’s enemy. Or do you think the scripture means nothing when it says, “The spirit that God caused to live within us has an envious yearning”?) Leaning to our own understanding, “is spiritual adultery in God‘s View!” So, there’s a fleshly desire and a God gifted desire.

(Proverbs 3:5-8; “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.”) (Study the whole text.) It’s prideful to lean to one’s own understanding, making disagreements natural.

(James 4:6-10; “Or do you think the scripture means nothing when it says, “The spirit that God caused to live within us has an envious yearning.” But He gives greater grace. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud, but He gives grace to the humble.” So submit to God. But resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and make your hearts pure, you double-minded. Grieve, mourn, and weep. Turn your laughter into mourning and your joy into despair. Humble yourselves before the Lord and He will exalt you.”) Remember Jesus said, “I’m the vine, you’re branches and can do nothing without Me.”

God is opposed to people’s leaning to their own understanding. Satan tempted Eve, Adam and Cain to do just that. We did inherited a spiritually adulterous nature from Adam, that must be turned from, “repent for having yielded to.”

Our practices identify us with our communities. We naturally want to be liked by family, friends and the community, the called are led to “be in but not of the world.” God’s called out people must practice Godly living, which generally opposes what’s politically correct. Societies “never consider Jesus’ Way normal living” in communities leaning to political correctness. Their’s fits this world’s system of things. Different in apostle’s day?

(1Peter 4:12-14; “Dear friends, do not be astonished that a trial by fire is occurring among you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice in the degree that you have shared in the sufferings of Christ, so that when His glory is revealed you may also rejoice and be glad. If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the spirit of glory, who is the Spirit of God, rests on you.”)

Israel’s recorded history deals with Jacob, Joseph, Moses, David and the prophets, all for our learning who live in this latter age. Remember Christians, are spiritual Israelites - Jews, a people God fights for. (See Galatians 3:29) Moses had to received the ten commandments a second time because when he came down the mountain the people had turned back to previous pagan worship and he broke the first tablet..

(Exodus 34:8-10; “Moses quickly bowed to the ground and worshiped and said, “If now I have found favor in your sight, O Lord, let my Lord go among us, for we are a stiff-necked people; pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us for Your inheritance.” (10) The Lord said, “See, I am going to make a covenant before all your people. I will do wonders such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation. All the people among whom you live will see the work of the Lord, for it is a fearful thing that I am doing with you.”)

The miraculous things God did for His chosen people are historical facts, never equaled. Like miracles He did personally, through His apostles and promised after His second coming. Unbelieving people driven from lands in Moses’ day are likened to the unbelievers Jesus will encounter when He returns.

(Exodus 34:11-17; “Obey what I am commanding you this day. I am going to drive out before you the Amorite, the Canaanite, the Hittite, the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite. Be careful not to make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land where you are going, lest it become a snare among you. Rather you must destroy their altars, smash their images, and cut down their Asherah poles. (14) For you must not worship any other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God. Be careful not to make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land, for when they prostitute themselves to their gods and sacrifice to their gods, and someone invites you, you will eat from his sacrifice; and you then take his daughters for your sons, and when his daughters prostitute themselves to their gods, they will make your sons prostitute themselves to their gods as well. You must not make yourselves molten gods.”) (Remember Solomon?

God doesn’t change. Leaning to one’s own understanding is prostituting. It’s God’s covenant equivalent for Christian worship and marriage as revealed through Jesus’ apostle Paul. (Review 2Corinthians 6:14-17)

Believers IN are commanded to overcome to the end, examine ourselves and put away sin. Through Moses, Jesus had the Israelites putting leavening “that which puffs up” out from their homes to demonstrate and foreshadow putting sin away. In Egypt the Israelites were saved from the death angel by putting blood on their door facing. Looking forward to Jesus’ blood sacrifice for the remission of sin. The next step was then and is now, to put sin out.

(Exodus 34:18-20; “You must keep the Feast of Unleavened Bread. For seven days you must eat bread made without yeast, as I commanded you; do this at the appointed time of the month “Abib - Nisan” for in this month you came out of Egypt. “Every firstborn of the womb belongs to Me, even every firstborn of your cattle that is a male, whether ox or sheep. Now the firstling of a donkey you may redeem with a lamb, but if you do not redeem it, then break its neck. You must redeem all the firstborn of your sons. “No one will appear before Me empty-handed.”)

Jesus was the first born among His brethren; “the only begotten Son of God.” People called to be believers IN Jesus, “are begotten children of God.” The Passover season looks to Jesus’ deeds on Believer’s behalf. The season Has two annual Sabbaths.

(Exodus 34:21; “On six days you may labor, but on the seventh day you must rest; even at the time of plowing and of harvest you are to rest.”) God’s Sabbaths are made for Believers IN, a spiritually led people loving and trusting God. The weekly Sabbath is so special, God says; “even when work is stacked up, rest and remember to whom you belong.”

(Exodus 34:22-24; “You must observe the Feast of Weeks, “Pentecost” the first fruits of the harvest of wheat – and the Feast of Ingathering “Tabernacles” at the end of the year. At three times in the year all your men must appear before the Lord God, the God of Israel. (24) For I will drive out the nations before you and enlarge your borders; no one will covet your land when you go up to appear before the Lord your God three times in the year.”)

God doesn’t change, the principle is, “when Jesus’ deeds and characteristics are revealed” the next step is to repent for having lived the way that seemed right to the fleshly mind. Followers of Jesus must consider the nature of the fleshly mind and where that nature leads.

The whole “Word of God” is for our learning. The Sabbath lesson is, “God is our Provider.” The principle for obedience then and now is; “those whose heart God stirs, “those He gives the desire and effort” should take action.” See Exodus 35:21, 26 & 36:2.

Christians, (unlike the Israelites in Moses’ day) are gifted with a Godly desire to be atOne with God the Son and God the Father. The spirit of loving obedience. Jesus explains through His apostle Paul.

(Romans 15:4-6; “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.”)

The old and new covenants are for God’s chosen people’s learning. Prophetic words through Jesus’ prophets of old and His apostles, are NOT for fleshly instinctive minds, but from God gifted revelations and to His called out people.
