Spirit of Truth, chapter 8

8/24/19, God’s 5th month, Av, 23, 5779 until sunset

To: Called to be atOne with God the Father and God the Son people, Heirs with Abraham.

God’s weekly and annual Sabbaths look forward to rest from normal work, being mindful of examining ourselves in Jesus’ Light and  His wholesome, loving planning. We don’t set dates but we’re mindful that God planned for a time of peace on earth and Satan bound for a thousand years. Considering the seven day week, our Sabbath being holy and God saying a thousand years is as a day with Him is a clue to when Jesus’ return is planned. (2Peter 3:8; “Now, dear friends, do not let this one thing escape your notice, that a single day is like a thousand years with the Lord and a thousand years are like a single day.”) Additionally we’re mindful of Paul’s Roman 3:1-3; revelation regarding the Jews being entrusted with the oracles of God which includes His calendar.  Consider it. (Rom 3:1-3; “Therefore what advantage does the Jew have, or what is the value of circumcision? Actually, there are many advantages. First of all, the Jews were entrusted with the oracles of God. What then? If some did not believe, does their unbelief nullify the faithfulness of God? Absolutely not! Let God be proven true, and every human being shown up as a liar, just as it is written: “so that you will be justified in your words and will prevail when you are judged.”

The Judean calendar year count is near accurate and it’s been about 5,780 years since Adam. (We believe 6,000 years represents six of seven thousand years before New Jerusalem’s planned coming down.) We believe its about 220 years until God the Father’s planned return of Jesus. We believe Jesus when He says “time will be shortened for the Elect’s sake. Matt 24:” We believe the “1Cor 13:8 scripture that says some “prophecies, will be set aside, tongues ceased and knowledge may be set aside” assuming that’s because of His shortening time for the Elect‘s sake. (1Cor 13:8-10; “Love never ends. But if there are prophecies, they will be set aside; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be set aside. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part, but when what is perfect comes, the partial will be set aside.” We’re mindful that as Satan sees his end nearing, he’ll become more ruthful, cause people to become less loving and more deceitful with one another. Because of unbelief plagues are on the horizon.

See Revelations 15: and consider (Rev 16:8-9; Then the fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and it was permitted to scorch people with fire. Thus people were scorched by the terrible heat, yet they blasphemed the name of God, who has ruling authority over these plagues, and they would not repent and give Him glory.

(Rev 16:10-11; Then the fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast so that darkness covered his kingdom, and people began to bite their tongues because of their pain. (11) They blasphemed the God of heaven because of their sufferings and because of their sores, but nevertheless they still refused to repent of their deeds.”

(Rev 16:12-14;;Then the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates and dried up its water to prepare the way for the kings from the east. (13) Then I saw three unclean spirits that looked like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of the demons performing signs who go out to the kings of the earth to bring them together for the battle that will take place on the great day of God, the All-Powerful.

Many followers of Jesus will be saved from these type plagues. (Rev 16:15-16; (Look! I will come like a thief! Blessed is the one who stays alert and does not lose his clothes so that he will not have to walk around naked and his shameful condition be seen.) Now the spirits gathered the kings and their armies to the place that is called Armageddon in Hebrew.” Always study the whole.)

Remember, Jesus’ apostle wrote about God’s reason for hardening the human heart.

(Rom 1:21-24; For although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God or give Him thanks, but they became futile in their thoughts and their senseless hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for an image resembling mortal human beings or birds or four-footed animals or reptiles. Therefore God gave them over in the desires of their hearts to impurity, to dishonor their bodies among themselves.”)

Jesus inspired His prophets and apostles to speak of God’s promises to Abraham’s heirs being perpetual, “promises regarding Abraham’s heirs are unfolding.”

(1John 3:1-3; (“See what sort of love the Father has given to us: that we, “followers of Jesus” should be called God’s children – and indeed we are! For this reason the world does not know us: because it did not know Him.” Dear friends, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet been revealed. We know that whenever it is revealed we will be like Jesus, because we will see Him just as He is. And everyone who has this hope focused on Him purifies himself, just as Jesus is pure.) It’s the hope purifying each Saint!

Only the called recognized Jesus as “the Son of God” when He came in the flesh and grew up among them. Unbelievers didn’t know nor recognize Him then nor now, even after seeing and reading about His miracles. Denominational minded Pharisees / Sadducees and today’s organizations are “mostly concerned about Jesus’ Way taking away their parishioners. The called recognize Jesus as Creator, Savior and coming King of Kings, but the many simply “believe that” rather than “believing IN.” Adam and Eve believed that. Few “believe IN” as did Abel, Enoch and Seth. Fleshly minded people are Adam’s heirs, inherit Adam’s lawless nature. Spiritual minded people “the Elect” are “believers In” and heirs with faithful Abraham.

(Galatians 3:26-29; For in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God through faith. For all of you who were baptized 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. And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to the promise.”)

All people think fleshly until God the father and God the Son is revealed. Fleshly minded folks do what seems right to their inherited from Adam fleshy mind. Spiritually minded folks are gifted with a desire to mimic Jesus. With gifted belief IN, comes the gifted desire to practice God’s righteous Ways and turn from the way that once seemed right to the fleshy mind..

(1John 3:4-6; “Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness; indeed, sin is lawlessness. And you know that Jesus was revealed to take away sins, and in Him there is no sin. Everyone who resides in Him does not “practice” sin; everyone who “practices” sins has neither seen Him nor known Him.”)

When Jesus is revealed people are gifted to understand His Way and purpose.

“Practice” is the key word here. People to whom Jesus is revealed “can’t keep from allowing an occasional bad thought from entering the mind, “but through His gifted spirit is power to control, evaluate, judge thoughts, repent and turn to practicing righteousness in His View.

(1John 3:7-10; “Little children, let no one deceive you: The one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as Jesus is righteous. The one who practices sin “lawlessness in God’s View” is of the devil, (doing what seems right to the fleshly mind.) because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was revealed: ‘to us individually’ to destroy the works of the devil.”)

We can’t be yielded to the flesh and God’s spirit simultaneously. The devil’s work is ongoing with idolatrous practices and worship until Jesus’ Way is revealed. Jesus sets the standard for His followers and only through Him is the knowledge of right, wrong, good and evil. Satan wants people believing they have a right to choose what’s right, wrong, good and evil. Satan wants people remaining fleshy, lawless and sinful like himself.

8/23/19, God’s 5th month, Av, 22, 5779 until sunset. To: Called to be atOne with God the Father and God the Son people, Heirs with Abraham.

Each denomination has agenda’s. Believers IN God, sacrifices personal agendas and yields to God’s agenda as revealed in holy scripture. The scripture teaches, “believers should examine themselves in Jesus’ Light. We’re thinking of  a particular scripture.

(Philippians 2:5-8; 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 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!” (Always study the whole.)

Though Jesus existed in the form of God, “an independent equality differing from His Father’s was never considered.” Rather, Jesus considered Himself obedient to “in servitude to” His and our Father. King James translation reads, “Let this mind by in you; which was in Christ Jesus. Who being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: but made Himself of no reputation and took upon Him the from of a servant and was made in the likeness of man: and being found in fashion as a man humbled Himself, and became obedient to death, even the death of the cross.” Phil 2:5-8) Remember Jesus said, “when you see Me you see the Father, we are One.”

We Believers IN, know God as “The all knowing pre-planner who’s plans can’t be frustrated. The Lord God Jesus revealed and Isaiah wrote, “Indeed, the Lord who commands armies has a plan and who can possibly frustrate it? His hand is ready to strike, and who can possibly stop it? Isaiah 14:27” The chapter speaks to Israel’s future deliverance, Satan’s demise and the whole world looking to God’s people; “Israel” for instruction. Study the whole and Isaiah 44: where the Lord speaks to Israel’s idolatry and empowered Cyrus hundreds before his birth to the rebuilding of Jerusalem and Temple, that’d be carried out by another. Speaking of Cyrus, the Lord Jesus had Isaiah write.

(Isaiah 44:24-28; This is what the Lord, your protector, says, the One who formed you in the womb: “I am the Lord, who made everything, who alone stretched out the sky, who fashioned the earth all by Myself, (25) who frustrates the omens of the empty talkers and humiliates the omen readers, who overturns the counsel of the wise men and makes their advice seem foolish, who fulfills the oracles of His prophetic servants and brings to pass the announcements of His messengers, who says about Jerusalem, ‘She will be inhabited,’ and about the towns of Judah, ‘They will be rebuilt, her ruins I will raise up,’ who says to the deep sea, ‘Be dry! I will dry up your sea currents,’ who commissions Cyrus, the one I appointed as shepherd to carry out all My wishes and to decree concerning Jerusalem, ‘She will be rebuilt,’ and concerning the temple, ‘It will be reconstructed.’”) Again study the whole.

God the Father’s ultimate purpose for His chosen people created in His image, is that we live in Jesus’ Light. (Remember He’s The Light of the World. See John 1:1-5) Our temporary physical life in the flesh is a learning experience with fleshly and spiritual obstacles to overcome. God purposely allowed Satan to deceive Adam and Eve and purposely allowed that all people inherit their lawless nature that must be overcome. He has purposely allowed Satan to be “the temporary god of this world.” Purposely allowing that all but His Elect be deceived. Jesus taught it through Mark and Matthew. (Mark 13:21-23; “Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘Look, there He is!’ do not believe him. For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, the Elect. Be careful! I have told you everything ahead of time.)

God the Father and Jesus being All in All, the Alpha and Omega has everything planned for His ultimate purpose. Back when Israel was dispersed to Babylon, king Nebuchadnezzar had a troubling dream; God had Daniel in place to give him interpretations and speak about the age we’re in and the one to come. (You’ll note that Babylon, “the source of world confusion under Satan’s deceptions is worldly.)

(Daniel 2:37-45; “You, O king, are the king of kings. The God of heaven has granted you sovereignty, power, strength, and honor. Wherever human beings, wild animals, and birds of the sky live – he has given them into your power. He has given you authority over them all. You are the head of gold. Now after you another kingdom will arise, one inferior to yours. Then a third kingdom, one of bronze, will rule in all the earth. Then there will be a fourth kingdom, one strong like iron. Just like iron breaks in pieces and shatters everything and as iron breaks in pieces all of these metals, so it will break in pieces and crush the others. In that you were seeing feet and toes partly of wet clay and partly of iron, so this will be a divided kingdom. Some of the strength of iron will be in it, for you saw iron mixed with wet clay. In that the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, the latter stages of this kingdom will be partly strong and partly fragile. And in that you saw iron mixed with wet clay, SO PEOPLE WILL BE MIXED with one another without adhering to one another, just as iron does not mix with clay. In the days of those kings the God of HEAVEN WILL raise up AN everlasting KINGDOM that will not be destroyed and a kingdom that will not be left to another people. It will break in pieces and bring about the demise of all these kingdoms. But it will stand forever. You saw that a Stone was cut from a mountain, but not by human hands; it smashed the iron, bronze, clay, silver, and gold into pieces. The great God has made known to the king what will occur in the future. The dream is certain, and its interpretation is reliable.”)

We’re living in the last states of human rule: “the rejected Stone is Jesus” AND Jesus in going to fulfill Daniel’s prophecy.

(Matthew 12:15-20; “Now when Jesus learned of this, He went away from there. Great crowds followed Him, and He healed them all. But He sternly warned them not to make Him known. This fulfilled what was spoken by Isaiah the prophet: “Here is My servant whom I have chosen, the One I love, in whom I take great delight. I will put My Spirit on Him and He will proclaim justice to the nations. He will not quarrel or cry out, nor will anyone hear His voice in the streets. He will not break a bruised reed or extinguish a smoldering wick, until He brings justice to victory. And in His name the Gentiles will hope.”) Darkness will finally give way to Jesus’ Light.

People overcoming our inherited fleshly pulls and demonic deceptions are characterized by Paul at “1Corinthians 13” the love chapter we shared last time.

Godly love is gifted spiritual maturity. A spiritual Godly Love maturity that allows one to believe IN God and be atOne with Him. (As a child and even in his adult age, Paul thought fleshly as denominations do today, “until Jesus called, revealed Himself and made him one of His apostles.” Only then did Paul began to think spiritually, “even yielding to and striving to be atOne with Jesus.” Thus Paul in the likeness of Jesus, who submitted to God the Father, surrendered his will to Jesus’. … Jesus was keeping the seventh of seven annual Sabbaths, “The Last Great Day of the Feast of Tabernacles” when John recorded Jesus’ saying. (John 7:37-39; “On the last day of the feast, The Greatest Day, Jesus stood up and shouted out, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me, and let the one who believes IN Me drink. Just as the scripture says, ‘From within him will flow rivers of living water.’” (Now He said this about the Spirit, whom those who believed IN Him were going to receive, for the Spirit had not yet been given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.)

The holy spirit of truth was first sent in large measure to dwell in a called out people by promised grace on God’s third annual Sabbath, “Pentecost.” Pentecost is the birth date of Jesus’ new covenant Church, it’s remembered by His called out people, was commanded to be kept by Israelites under the old covenant; since then by followers of Jesus and will be kept forever. Jesus reveals the workings of His spirit to Paul and to those who’d yield to His call.

The fourth annual Holy Sabbath, “The Feast of Trumpets” foreshadows the resurrection and Believers IN being as Jesus is. Jesus had His apostle Paul explain.

(1Corinthians 15:50-56; “Now this is what I am saying, brothers and sisters: Flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit imperishable.

Listen, I will tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed – in a moment, in the blinking of an eye, at the last Trumpet. For the Trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality. (54) Now when this perishable puts on the imperishable, and this mortal puts on immortality, then the saying that is written will happen, “Death has been swallowed up in victory.” (A quote from Isaiah 25:8) “Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?” (A quote from Hosea 13:14)

(56; The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ! So then, dear brothers and sisters, be firm. Do not be moved! Always be outstanding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.”) (Always study the whole) Jesus’ apostle Paul wrote that Jesus loved Gods church ‘God’s family” and warned about deceivers.

(2 Corinthians 11:12-15;“that 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 “we apostles‘” equals in the things they boast about.” For such people ‘those thinking they’re our equal’ are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. Therefore it is not surprising his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness, whose end will correspond to their actions.”) (All who condone activities and doctrines, Jesus had Moses write about; “saying they’re abominable to God” are participants of the synagogues of Satan.)  What can we learn from history?

Some three hundred years after Jesus’ ascension “the apostate movement Paul and Jude identified went on to develop a pagan calendar that’d appeal to “Baal, mother goddess, sun and all pagan god worshipers.” These Christendom impersonators “ignoring the importance of God’s calendar as given through Moses for His people, “the seventh day and annual Sabbaths.” If they could have they’d have altered the timing of the new moon, earth’s rotation and the seventh day, “times God made holy for His people foreshadowing the resurrection, atOnement with Jesus and His millennial rule on earth.” Jesus reveals these truths through His apostle John, we plan to share next study with Believers IN.”

8/21/19, God’s 5th month, Av, 20, 5779 until sunset

To: Called to be atOne with God the Father and God the Son people, Heirs with Abraham.

We believe subscribers here were searching for truth or spirit led to stumble on this site. Mindful that God puts His called out people in His Church. We’ve never advertised, we don’t solicit, nor is there a charge. We don’t provide a way to contribute financially. (Matt 24:14; “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.”) Do you individually fit the circumstance Paul described?

(1Cor 1:26-31; Think about the circumstances of your call, brothers and sisters. Not many were wise by human standards, not many were powerful, not many were born to a privileged position. But God chose what the world thinks foolish to shame the wise, and God chose what the world thinks weak to shame the strong. God chose what is low and despised in the world, what is regarded as nothing, to set aside what is regarded as something, so that no one can boast in His presence. He is the reason you have a relationship with Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification and redemption, so that, as it is written, “Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.”)

Consider; what humanity has evolve to without knowledge of our Creator God and His Ways? (1) The strong desire positions to help them lord over the weak. Bureaucracies grow, helping the strong accomplish their desire. (2) People invent gods and laws to fit their imagination: thus divisions and wars. (Study James 4:1-3) (3) Winners of conflicts give credit to their imaginary gods. (4) Individuals relish their intellect and become gods to themselves, “deciding for themselves what’s right, wrong, good and evil.” (5) Chaos confusion and animalistic life styles evolve as a belief in God diminishes. It’s where the whole world’s populations are today! EVEN the many professing Christians.

Worldly religions evolve and become more accepting of social changes. Society and educators are teaching our children to involve with this world’s system, accept changing life styles and traditions.

As Jesus predicted, “in these latter days knowledge has increased without spiritual knowledge of the true Creator God and His Ways.” People are digressing to the demonic which is leading to self destruction. Mankind’s history and Israelites particularly documents this fact for our learning! Professing Christianity has evolved from, “once having standards for church membership, to a condoning of changing moral values. The many are now excepting any and all life styles. (They point to fleshly knowledge’s increase through worldly education, scientific advancement and that all things continue as they were from the beginning.) Churches with like characterizations are synagogues of Satan. Who can possibly think all the various denominations calling themselves Christian are Christ like?

Basic common sense is lost on so called higher education. The fact that mankind has a capacity for learning, gain fleshly knowledge, inventive skills etc, is proof to thinking people that we’re God’s special creation. Admitting these facts should diminish man’s fleshly desire to make gods fit his imagination but only a few are called to God’s truth.

Our Creator loves His creation and has established particular loving order for His church.

Where does Godly love come from and what is Godly love? Did Adam and Eve have the gift of Godly love? Can individuals conjure up a Godly love for one another? No! A nature change is required in order to have Godly love. How so? We each inherited Adam’s fleshly self serving nature that must be changed in order to inherit eternal live. The result of that inherited from Adam nature is death. Allow Paul’s explanation.

(1Corinthians 15:20-28; “But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits 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 first fruits; then when Christ comes, those who belong to Him. Then comes the end, when He hands over the kingdom to God the Father, when He 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. 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. And when all things are subjected to Him, then the Son Himself will be subjected to the One who subjected everything to Him, so that God may be all in all.”)

Our nature must be changed to that of Jesus’.

(John 13:34-35; Jesus said; “I give you a new commandment – to love one another, Just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. Everyone will know by this that you are My disciples – if you have love for one another.”)

Jesus is speaking of gifted Godly love, not an animalistic love that one can conjure up. That’s only a love of me, mine and ours. Gifted love can truly love one’s enemy. It’s clear to Believing IN “ Christians” that Godly love must be gifted and believing IN Him must be gifted. NOW Jesus’ Love chapter, is gifted through Paul. We insert the word “Godly” in front of “love.”

(1Corinthians 13:1-13; If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but I do not have Godly love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophecy and know all mysteries and all knowledge and if I have all faith so that I can remove mountains, but do not have Godly love, I am nothing. If I give away everything I own, and if I give over my body in order to boast, but do not have Godly love, I receive no benefit.

Godly Love is patient, Godly love is kind, it is not envious. Godly Love does not brag, it is not puffed up. It is not rude, it is not self-serving, it is not easily angered or resentful. It is not glad about injustice, but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Godly Love never ends. But if there are prophecies, they will be set aside; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be set aside. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part, but when what is perfect comes, the partial will be set aside.

When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. But when I became an adult, I set aside childish ways. For now we see in a mirror indirectly, but then we will see face to face. Now I know in part, but then I will know fully, just as I have been fully known. And now these three remain: faith, hope, and Godly love. But the greatest of these is Godly love.)

Having Godly love for His creation, particularly humankind made in His image and likeness is how Jesus could give His life for the remission for the world’s sins. Godly love is the love shed abroad by the gifting of His spirit.

1John 4:19; Tells us that we love God because He loved us first. We need to understand that God the Father’s having Godly love for us individually, before the foundation of the world and revealing His Son, “is how and the reason we can have Godly love toward Him. It’s through revealed Godly love that Abraham and each of us can trust and have knowing faith in all God’s promises.

(Deut 7:9-11; 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.)

(1John 2:3-6; Now by this we know that we have come to know God: if we ‘lovingly’ keep His commandments. The one who says “I have come to know God” and yet does not keep His commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in such a person. But whoever obeys His word, truly in this person the love of God has been perfected. By this we know that we are in Him. The one who says he resides in God ought himself to walk just as Jesus walked.) (To know Him is to love Him.

(Romans 5:1-5; Therefore, since we have been declared righteous by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in the hope of God’s glory. Not only this, but we also rejoice in sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance, character, and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out6 in our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

(Romans 5:6-11; For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. (For rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person perhaps someone might possibly dare to die.) But God demonstrates His own ‘Godly’ love for us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, because we have now been declared righteous by His blood, we will be saved through Him from God’s wrath.  (10) For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, how much more, since we have been reconciled, will we be saved by His life? Not only this, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received this reconciliation.)

(Rom 5:12- So then, just as sin entered the world through one man ‘Adam’ and death through sin, and so death spread to all people because all sinned – for before the law was given, sin was in the world, but there is no accounting for sin when there is no law. Yet death reigned from Adam until Moses even over those who did not sin in the same way that Adam (who is a type of the coming One) transgressed. (15) But the gracious gift is not like the transgression. For if the many died through the transgression of the one man, how much more did the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the One man Jesus Christ multiply to the many! And the gift is not like the one who sinned. For judgment, resulting from the one transgression, led to condemnation, but the gracious gift from the many failures led to justification. (17) For if, by the transgression of the one man, death reigned through the one, how much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ! Consequently, just as condemnation for all people came through one transgression, so too through the one righteous act came righteousness leading to life for all people. For just as through the disobedience of the one man ‘Adam’ many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of One man ‘Jesus’ many will be made righteous. Now the law came in so that the transgression may increase, but where sin increased, grace multiplied all the more, so that just as sin reigned in death, so also grace will reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.) All planned from the beginning through God the Father and the Alpha and Omega, “Jesus.”

8/19/19, God’s 5th month, Av, 18, 5779 until sunset

To: Called to be atOne with God the Father and God the Son people, Heirs with Abraham.

Denominations have developed many concepts of God, the Hebrew and Greek translations of the holy scriptures identify Him as the One who’s coming with New Jerusalem, “named it’s twelve gates for Israel’s twelve tribes and it’s twelve foundations for the twelve apostles of the Lamb.” God the Father is coming after the Lamb “Jesus” has put everything in subjection, “the last being death.” (See 1Cor 15:25-28) As Jesus said, “the Father and I are One.” Abraham, Isaac and Jacob “Israel’s” God. “As One, the Father made Jesus the Cornerstone of His church, the Alpha, Omega, Creator and Deliverer of His chosen people.” Afterward, (15:24-28; Comes the end, when He hands over the kingdom to God the Father, when He has brought to an end all rule and all authority and power. For He must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet. 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 who put everything in subjection to Him. And when all things are subjected to Him, then the Son Himself will be subjected to the One who subjected everything to Him, so that God may be all in all.”

Individuals not believing Adam was supernaturally created, don’t believe IN Jesus. (People not believing they should be obedient to Jesus, “from a love of Him mind set” don’t believe IN God.) Thus the world at large, doesn’t believe IN the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Moses as He’s manifested to be in holy scripture.

Jesus had His apostle Paul and His prophet Isaiah write from revealed understanding “that God turned His created people over to darkness of heart because when they knew Him they became futile desiring to make themselves His equal.

(Romans 1:18-23; “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of people who suppress the truth by their unrighteousness, because what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes – His eternal power and divine nature – have been clearly seen, because they are understood through what has been made. So people are without excuse. For although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God or give Him thanks, but they became futile in their thoughts and their senseless hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for an image resembling mortal human beings or birds or four-footed animals or reptiles.”)

So God reveals Himself to individuals of His choosing, calls and makes them His people. We can’t believe IN God, love Him as He manifest Himself to be and know His purpose, except through His revelations. All because when people knew God they didn’t give Him glory and thanks, became vain: so He hardened hearts until a time of His choosing..

Adam and Eve didn’t glorify their Creator, rather they listened to the devil and yielded to their selfish get nature. Consider; “after talking with God and being allowed to name animals, Adam yielded to self aggrandizement when tempted by the devil.” He wasn’t gifted with a believing IN God nature. God hadn’t reveal His love, purpose, plan nor imputed His spirit of truth to Adam and Eve.

Adam believed, “God was” he wasn’t gifted with belief IN at the time. After disobeying, he and Eve discovered their humanity “their nakedness.” Their nature was fleshly, NOT spiritual, as in being atOne, “born from above.” Realizing their humanity and feeling guilt, they became ashamed. (study Genesis 3) (When they yielded to the serpent their fleshly humanity awakened, “their desiring to be wise in their own eyes, be divine, know good and evil for themselves was to reject God.)

It’s what all fleshly minded people desire until God reveals Himself and directs otherwise! Otherwise people could boast. People can’t alter their self serving desires until God opens their mind and reveals Himself. Remember, even Jesus’ apostles were fleshly minded until after Jesus’ resurrection and He gifted them with the Holy Spirit of truth.

After Jesus’ resurrection His apostles had reason to be frightened because of the Pharisees and Sadducees. (John 20:19-23; “On the evening of that day, the first day of the week, the disciples had gathered together and locked the doors of the place because they were afraid of the Jewish leaders. Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.” When He had said this, He showed them his hands and His side. Then the disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord. So Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. Just as the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” (22) And after He said this, He breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you, “apostles” forgive anyone’s sins, they are forgiven; if you retain anyone’s sins, they are retained.”)

Much earlier, Jesus’ apostles had heard Him explain to Nicodemus, “that he must be born from above” and how being born of the spirit take place, but they didn’t understand any of these things until Jesus gave His spirit. Suppose any fleshly person can understand spiritual things without the same gift?

(John 3:5-8; “Jesus answered Nicodemus, “I tell you the solemn truth, unless a person is born of water and spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. What is born of the flesh is flesh, and what is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not be amazed that I said to you, ‘You must all be born from above.’ (8) The wind blows wherever it will, and you hear the sound it makes, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.”)

We’re all fleshly until God supernaturally puts His spirit of truth in us. That imputed spirit comes like wind and we’re all incomplete until gifted with it. Afterward recipients of His spirit aren’t the same individuals as before.

From the beginning, God the Father willed that, “believers IN Jesus would be gifted with eternal life through Him.” After being tempted Adam and Eve thought to take on another way and yielded to selfish desires. Before then God was looking forward to His planned timing for “gifting His spirit of truth to His people.” His Holy Spirit would be gifted on that Pentecost after Jesus’ shed blood for the remission of sin and His resurrection! It was a fathering plan, a parenting plan to be gifted by God the Father through God the Son, to His chosen.

The Son of God, “Jesus” came in the flesh demonstrating all the Godly attributes He’d shown Noah and Moses. Doing miracles, feeding thousands, healing and resurrecting Lazarus. However the many, like Adam and Eve didn’t believe IN Him because they were not then gifted. How could that be? Jesus explained that His sheep hear His voice, but they didn’t understand that either until after gifted with the Holy Spirit of truth.

(John 10:14-18; “I am the good shepherd. I know My own and My own know Me; just as the Father knows Me and I know the Father – and I lay down My life for the sheep. (16) I have other sheep that do not come from this sheepfold. I must bring them too, and they will listen to My voice, so that there will be one flock and one shepherd. This is why The Father loves Me – because I lay down My life, so that I may take it back again. No one takes it away from Me, but I lay it down of My own free will. I have the authority to lay it down, and I have the authority to take it back again. This commandment I received from My Father.”)

Consider the fact that life is in the blood. Shedding blood is shedding of life. Animal sacrifices always looked forward to the Son of God, “Jesus” shedding His blood for the remission of sin and to give eternal life; “Adam, Eve’s, mine, yours and the whole world’s sins. His life is more valuable than all others combined.

(John 12:37-40; “Although Jesus had performed so many miraculous signs before them, they still refused to believe IN Him, so that the word of Isaiah the prophet would be fulfilled.” Isaiah wrote, “Lord, who has believed our message, and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?” For this reason they could not believe, because again Isaiah said, (40) “He has blinded their eyes and hardened their heart, so that they would not see with their eyes and understand with their heart, and turn to Me, and I would heal them.”)

Revealed is a key word! God’s seventh month with it’s four of seven annual Sabbaths foreshadow His coming, our being made atOne with Him, Jesus’ millennial rule, final judgment, Satan bound and New Jerusalem coming down. Knowledge of God’s Ways will be revealed to the world as water covers the sea.

8/16/19, God’s 5th month, Av, 15, 5779 until sunset

To: Called to be atOne with God the Father and God the Son people, Heirs with Abraham.Fleshly denominations want their members feeling good about their decisions.Members of God’s family “church” defined by Jesus and apostles.Review Ephesians 1:. Then back to Corinthians and Jesus teaching through Paul, regarding church membership.

(1Cor 12:19-26; “If they were all the same member, where would the body be? So now there are many members, but one body. The eye cannot say to the hand, “I do not need you,” nor in turn can the head say to the foot, “I do not need you.” (22) On the contrary, those members that seem to be weaker are essential, and those members we consider less honorable we clothe with greater honor, and our un-presentable members are clothed with dignity, but our presentable members do not need this. Instead, God has blended together the body, giving greater honor to the lesser member, so that there may be no division in the body, but the members may have mutual concern for one another. (26) If one member suffers, everyone suffers with it. If a member is honored, all rejoice with it.”)

As the world might say, “Jesus’ teaching through Paul isn’t rocket science.”Fleshly minded people can’t be trusted in their inherited nature to serve in God‘s kingdom. Nor can fleshly people trust themselves, in spiritual matters. People can’t be trusted until their nature is miraculously changed from Adam‘s to Jesus’ nature. Only after our all knowing Creator calls, reveals Jesus, changes our nature and makes us His literal children are we Believers IN. Jesus and His apostles referred to this change as “being born again.” God the Father reveals, grants repentance and makes us His own through the imputation of His spirit. Until then all are unbelievers in His view. Called - repentant Believers inherit a new nature, made new creations, are supernaturally born from above and are no longer their own. Belonging to God is to be clothed with and immersion in Jesus. Revelations are to people who’re made atOne with God the Father and God the Son. Did Jesus teach it through His apostles?

(1Corinthians 12:27-31; “Now you, “followers of Jesus” are Christ’s body and each of you is a member of it. And God has PLACED in the church, first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, gifts of healing, helps, gifts of leadership, different kinds of tongues. Not all are apostles, are they? Not all are prophets, are they? Not all are teachers, are they? Not all perform miracles, do they? Not all have gifts of healing, do they? Not all speak in tongues, do they? Not all interpret, do they? (31) But you should be eager for the greater gifts.”)

God developed patterns to coincide with His message: numbers such as seven day weeks, three holy season, seven annual Sabbaths, twelve apostles, twelve tribes, twelve foundations of New Jerusalem are all significant in His message planning.

Jesus SELECTED twelve apostles, New Jerusalem has twelve foundations and twelve gates. Twelve foundations are named for the twelve apostles and twelve gates are named for the twelve tribes of Israel. (Rev 21:12-14; Jerusalem  has a massive, high wall with twelve gates, with twelve angels at the gates, and the names of the twelve tribes of the nation of Israel are written on the gates. There are three gates on the east side, three gates on the north side, three gates on the south side and three gates on the west side. The wall of the city has twelve foundations, and on them are the twelve names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

Are there more apostles? Is there need for more? What could another apostle add to what’s been given? except to fulfill Jesus’ words through Isaiah?

(Isaiah 8:19-20; “They 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?” 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.”)

Teachers to whom God hasn’t revealed Himself, teach differing messages than did Jesus and His twelve apostles. They’re FALSE when they teach what’s logical to their fleshly minds. We have the chief Cornerstone, “Jesus.” He gave His truth through His apostles. God has made Believers IN, “AtOne in Christ Jesus.” Another apostle? Paul shares more with the Ephesians and we Believers.

(Eph 2:19-22; “So then you “gentile followers of Jesus” are no longer foreigners and non-citizens, but you are fellow citizens with the Saints and members of God’s household, because you have been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus Himself as the Cornerstone. In Him the whole building, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together into a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.”)

What a high calling! Key to it all is to honor and Love our Creator Jesus with our whole heart!

(1Cor 12:31; And now I will show you a way that is beyond comparison.” (Followers of Jesus call this next chapter, “the love chapter.”) The subject is Godly Love. Not a fleshly love that’s hinged on “self, me and mine.” Not an animalistic instinctive love, likened to a mother bear protecting her cubs or a human mother caring for her baby. Godly love is an outgoing love, even for unbelievers and God’s enemies. Likened to Creator Jesus’ love for the world, shedding His blood for the remission of sin and loving His church particularly.

We can’t choose, “in and of ourselves” to be a member of God’s church any more than we could have chosen our own human parents. Our awesome God the Father does the calling and choosing. He gives talents and places members in His body, “His church” for His purpose. Jesus said it.

(John 6:37-40; “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. 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. (40) 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.”)

Eternal life gifted through Jesus. (John 6:32-37; “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.” So they said to Him, “Sir, give us this bread all the time!” (35) 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.” 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.”)

Jesus’ isn’t speaking of a people believing in a Jesus of their imagination, but the Son of God, as He’s revealed in holy scripture. He can’t be worshiped as and imaginary figurine likeness of an imagined Jesus.

Jesus is all in all. (Review John 1:1-5, Colossians 1:15-20 and Hebrews 1:) It was Creator Jesus that gave the ten commandments to Moses, “for our good.” Made us free from the enslavement of our inherited nature and Satan’s deceptions. Believers IN are servants to our Creator and His purpose.

It was Creator Jesus that rested on the seventh day and set the day aside for His people. So His people could take time to reflect on their being, purpose, responsibility and calling. Defiant Muslims changed their rest day to the 6th: defiant Catholic and Protestants changed theirs to the 1st. Such decisions by individuals and organizations are abominations to God.

Spirit of Truth, chapter 3

8/13/19, God’s 5th month, Av, 12, 5779 until sunset

To: Called to be atOne with God the Father and God the Son people, Heirs with Abraham.

People groups/denominations using and praying in Jesus’ name aren’t necessarily His followers. In fact “if one is the rest aren’t.” Holy scriptures teach “one truth, One God who’s absolute and one Holy Spirit that leads it’s recipients to truth.

(1John 3:2-3; Dear friends, we ‘followers of Jesus’ are God’s children now and what we will be has not yet been revealed. We know that whenever it is revealed we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is. And everyone who has this hope focused on Him purifies himself, just as Jesus is pure.)

Sadducees questioning Jesus were like denominations and individuals in each age who have agendas; (Agendas much like Paul’s before his conversion) “who thought there’s a methodologist for gaining salvation.” Pursuing personal agenda’s in the area of belief/doctrines are for unbelievers who don’t know God the Son nor His Father. Believing IN God is to surrender personal agendas regarding beliefs, fleshly notions of belief and yield to His truth. Jesus inspired His apostle Paul to address this subject.

(Romans 8:31-40; What then shall we say about these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? Indeed, He who did not spare His own Son, but gave Him up for us all – how will He not also, along with Him ‘Jesus’ freely give us all things? Who will bring any charge against God’s Elect? It is God who justifies. Who is the one who will condemn? Christ is the One who died (and more than that, He was raised), who is at the right hand of God, and who also is interceding for us. (35) Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will trouble, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written, “For your ‘Jesus’” sake we encounter death all day long; we were considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things we have complete victory through Him who loved us! (38) For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor heavenly rulers, nor things that are present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in creation will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.)

For Jesus’ truth, His apostles and each follower is considered as sheep for the slaughter among unbelievers with agenda’s. Jesus’ apostle Paul wrote his spiritual son regarding the hardship some have because of following Jesus.

(2Tim 2:8- Remember Jesus Christ, raised from the dead, a descendant of David; such is my gospel, for which I suffer hardship to the point of imprisonment as a criminal, but God’s message is not imprisoned! So I endure all things for the sake of those chosen by God, that they too may obtain salvation in Christ Jesus and its eternal glory. This saying is trustworthy: (11) If we died with Him, we will also live with Him. (Meaning; if we turn from fleshly agenda’s.) If we endure, we will also reign with Him. If we deny Him, He will also deny us. If we are unfaithful, He remains faithful, since He cannot deny Himself.)

Denominations and people with personal doctrinal beliefs are friends with the world, followers of Jesus have denied self and believe IN the Jesus through whom there’s salvation and eternal life.

Remember Enoch “the seventh from Adam” also wrote about God’s kingdom on earth: See Jude 1:14-16.

(Titus 1:1-4; To Titus, my genuine son in a common faith. Grace and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Savior.

From Paul, a slave of God and apostle of Jesus Christ, to further the faith of God’s chosen ones and the knowledge of the truth that’s keeping with godliness, in hope of eternal life, which God, who does not lie, promised before the ages began. But now in His own time He has made His message evident through the preaching I was entrusted with according to the command of God our Savior.)

The Lord God our Savior Jesus entrusted His apostles with THE TRUTH that was promised before this age began. It’s the message that must be believed IN with a surrendering of personal assumptions. Jesus’ apostle Peter was on the same wave link. Remember God’s chosen people the Israelites had been scattered because of breaking their covenant with God. That scattering deemed temporary until they’re delivered again to the promised lands. A promise by the resurrection of Jesus to an inherited by promise people.

(1Peter 1:1-2; From Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to those temporarily residing abroad3 (in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, the province of Asia, and Bithynia) who are chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father by being set apart by the Spirit for obedience and for sprinkling with Jesus Christ’s blood. May grace and peace be yours in full measure!

New Birth to Joy and Holiness

(1Pet 1:3-5; Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! By His great mercy He gave us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, that is, into an inheritance imperishable, undefiled, and unfading. It is reserved in heaven for you, who by God’s power are protected through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.)

(1Pet 1:6-7; This brings you ‘followers of Jesus’ great joy, although you may have to suffer for a short time in various trials. Such trials show the proven character of your faith, which is much more valuable than gold – gold that is tested by fire, even though it is passing away – and will bring praise and glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. (To you personally.)

(1Pet 1:8-9; You ‘followers’ have not seen Him, but you love Him. You do not see Him now but you believe IN Him and so you rejoice with an indescribable and glorious joy, because you are attaining the goal of your faith – the salvation of your souls.)

(1Pet 1:10- Concerning this salvation, the prophets who predicted the grace that would come to you searched and investigated carefully. They probed into what person or time the Spirit of Christ within them was indicating when he testified beforehand about the sufferings appointed for Christ and His subsequent glory. (12) They were shown that they were serving not themselves but you, in regard to the things now announced to you through those who proclaimed the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven – things angels long to catch a glimpse of.”) Quoting from Isaiah 28:16, Peter writes.

(1Peter 2:6-10; For it says in scripture, “Look, I lay in Zion a stone, a chosen and priceless Cornerstone, and whoever believes IN Him will never be put to shame.” (7) So you who believe ‘IN’ see His value, but for those who do not believe, the stone that the builders rejected has become the Cornerstone, and a stumbling-stone and a rock to trip over. They stumble because they disobey the word, as they were destined to do. But you ‘followers of Jesus’ are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people of His own, so that you may proclaim the virtues of the One who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. (10) You once were not a people, but now you are God’s people. You were shown no mercy, but now you have received mercy.”)

Jesus had Isaiah proclaim it. (Isaiah 43:10-12; You ‘that believe” are My witnesses,” says the Lord, “My servant whom I have chosen, so that you may consider and believe IN Me, and understand that I am He. No god was formed before Me, and none will outlive Me. I, I am the Lord, and there is no Deliverer besides Me. I decreed, delivered, proclaimed, and there was no other god among you. You ‘Israelites - Christians’ are My witnesses,” says the Lord, “that I am God.”)

From Abraham’s time it’s obvious that God does the choosing. By His choosing, “no one can boast of their choice, goodness nor works.”

(1Corinthians 1:26-31; Think about the circumstances of your call, brothers and sisters. Not many were wise by human standards, not many were powerful, not many were born to a privileged position. (27) But God chose what the world thinks foolish to shame the wise, and God chose what the world thinks weak to shame the strong. God chose what is low and despised in the world, what is regarded as nothing, to set aside what is regarded as something, so that no one can boast in His presence. He ‘God the Father’ is the reason you ‘Believers’ have a relationship with Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification and redemption, so that, as it is written, “Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.”

Every called individual realizes after their call “they were chosen before the foundation of the world by an all knowing God.

(John 8:19; Then they began asking Him, “Who is your father?” Jesus answered, “You do not know either Me or My Father. If you knew Me you’d know My Father too.”)

(John 8:21; Then Jesus said to them again, “I am going away, and you ‘Israelites’ will look for Me but will die in your sin. Where I am going you cannot come.”)

(John 8:23-24 Jesus replied, “You people are from below; I am from above. You people are from this world; I am not from this world. Thus I told you that you will die in your sins. For unless you believe that I am He, you’ll die in your sins.”)

We too attempt to free people with Jesus’ truth.

(Ephesians 1:3-14; “Blessed is the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms in Christ. For He chose us in Christ before the foundation of the world that we may be holy and unblemished in His sight in love. He did this by predestining us to adoption as His sons through Jesus Christ, according to the pleasure of His will – to the praise of the glory of His grace that He has freely bestowed on us in His dearly loved Son. In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace (8) that He lavished on us in all wisdom and insight. He ‘God the Father’ did this when He revealed to us the secret of His will, according to His good pleasure that He set forth in Christ, toward the administration of the fullness of the times, to head up all things in Christ – the things in heaven and the things on earth. (11) In Christ we too have been claimed as God’s own possession, since we were predestined according to the one purpose of Him who accomplishes all things according to the counsel of His will so that we, who were the first to set our hope on Christ, would be to the praise of His glory. And when you heard the word of truth (the gospel of your salvation) – when you believed in Christ – you were marked with the seal of the promised Holy Spirit, (14) who is the down payment of our inheritance, until the redemption of God’s own possession, to the praise of His glory.) Personal doctrines, methodologies and agenda’s have no place in God’s church. Remember there’s One God, One Truth and One Way.

8/12/19, God’s 5th month, Av, 11, 5779 until sunset

To: Called to be atOne with God the Father and God the Son people, Heirs with Abraham.

Jesus’ saying to the Israelites “you’ll die in your sins” didn’t mean it was their end. Remember Jesus is the resurrection. When Lazarus died Jesus took four days to arrive at the family home. Lazarus’ sister knew about the last day physical resurrection from prophecy, but not the spiritual resurrection to eternal life. Jesus explained both.

John 11:23-31; Jesus replied, “Your brother will come back to life again.” Martha said, “I know that he’ll come back to life again in the resurrection at the last day.” Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in Me will live even if he dies, and the one who lives and believes in (Believing IN) will never die. Do you believe this?” She replied, “Yes, Lord, I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God who comes into the world.” (28) When she had said this, Martha went and called her sister Mary, saying privately, “The Teacher is here and is asking for you.” So when Mary heard this, she got up quickly and went to Him. (Now Jesus had not yet entered the village, but was still in the place where Martha had come out to meet Him.) Then the people who were with Mary in the house consoling her saw her get up quickly and go out. They followed her, because they thought she was going to the tomb to weep there.

(John 11:32- Now when Mary came to the place where Jesus was and saw Him, she fell at His feet and said to Him, “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.” When Jesus saw her weeping, and the people who had come with her weeping, He was intensely moved in spirit and greatly distressed. He asked, “Where have you laid him?” They replied, “Lord, come and see.” (35) Jesus wept. Thus the people who had come to mourn said, “Look how much He loved him!” But some of them said, “This is the man who caused the blind man to see! Couldn’t He have done something to keep Lazarus from dying?”

Lazarus and other Raised from the Dead

(John 11:38-44;  Jesus, intensely moved again, came to the tomb. (Now it was a cave, and a stone was placed across it.) Jesus said, “Take away the stone.” Martha, the sister of the deceased, replied, “Lord, by this time the body will have a bad smell, because he’s been buried four days.” (40) Jesus responded, “Didn’t I tell you that if you believe, you would see the glory of God?” So they took away the stone. Jesus looked upward and said, “Father, I thank You that You have listened to Me. I knew that You always listen to Me, but I said this for the sake of the crowd standing around here, that they may believe that You sent Me.” When He had said this, He shouted in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!” The one who had died came out, his feet and hands tied up with strips of cloth, and a cloth wrapped around his face. Jesus said to them, “Unwrap him and let him go.”)

(John 11:45-48; “Then many of the people, who had come with Mary and had seen the things Jesus did, believed IN Him. But some of them 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.”

(John 11:49-62; 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.” (Now he 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, (52) and not for the Jewish nation only, but to gather together into one the children of God who are scattered.) So from that day they planned together to kill him.”) Caiaphas was supernaturally given these prophetic words because he was serving as high priest, “not from his own mind.” Jesus will indeed gather into One (yet deliver again) the children of God who’re scattered back to their promised lands.

Study the whole chapter: (Isaiah 35:8-10; “A thoroughfare will be there – it will be called the Way of Holiness. The unclean will not travel on it; it is reserved for those authorized to use it – fools will not stray into it. No lions will be there, no ferocious wild animals will be on it – they will not be found there. Those delivered from bondage will travel on it, those whom the Lord has ransomed will return that way. They will enter Zion with a happy shout. Unending joy will crown them, happiness and joy will overwhelm them; grief and suffering will disappear.”) (All Israel will be delivered again, study also  Isaiah 22:, 51:-53:, 65:.Jeremiah 31: and Amos 9:11-15 for starters.

Lazarus, Tabitha called Dorcas and many others were physically resurrected. All these, Jesus’ healing, resurrection and those He did through His apostles are foreshadows of the miracles to be done during Jesus’ millennial rule on earth. (See Acts 5:6-12 about healings and 9:36-43 for the account of Jesus resurrecting through Peter. After Jesus’ resurrection many Saints were resurrected to a physical life and went out witnessing.)

(Matt 27:50-56; 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.) (54) Now when the centurion and those with him who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and what took place, they were extremely terrified and said, “Truly this One was God’s Son!” Many women who had followed Jesus from Galilee and given Him support were also there, watching from a distance. (56) Among them were Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James and Joseph, and the mother of the sons of Zebedee.

Satan’s falsehoods enslave the world.

What keeps individuals and groups in various degrees of darkness? Falsehoods! Believing in fabrications! Back then many Believers IN Jesus didn’t confess because they feared the Pharisees while others had confidence in their personal opinions, own intellect! Either way they were enslaved, so consider what is freedom? Only believing IN truth can set a person free! Jesus taught it!

(John 8:31-41; Then Jesus said to those Judeans who had believed him, “If you continue to follow My teaching, you are really My disciples (32) and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” “We are descendants of Abraham,” they replied, “and have never been anyone’s slaves! How can you say, ‘You will become free’?” Jesus answered them, “I tell you the solemn truth, everyone who practices sin is a slave of sin. The slave does not remain in the family forever, but the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be really free. I know that you “Israelites’ are Abraham’s descendants. But you want to kill Me, because My teaching makes no progress among you. (38) I am telling you the things I have seen while with the Father; as for you, practice the things you have heard from the Father!” They answered Him, “Abraham is our father!” Jesus replied, “If you are Abraham’s children, you would be doing the deeds of Abraham. But now you are trying to kill Me, a man who has told you the truth I heard from God. Abraham did not do this! You people are doing the deeds of your father.”)

The fact is; “people who aren’t believing IN God’s truth aren’t free, but enslaved to that belief. When people believe in Satan’s lies, he’s their “father or god.” It brings tears to the eyes of Believers IN, when people we love hang to demonic fabrications.

Today’s demonic deceptions are also in “false science.”

Jesus inspired Paul to write Timothy about “so called knowledge, ‘KJT science’ causing a straying from the faith.

(1Tim 6:20-21’ O Timothy, protect what has been entrusted to you. Avoid the profane chatter and absurdities of so-called “knowledge.” By professing it, some have strayed from the faith. Grace be with you all.”) Today many intellectuals and their followers are caught up in the “Roswell and other phenomenon” thinking unknown science or magic events are taking place that’s only understood by higher intellect. Thinking natural laws of gravity and others can be defied by critters from space. People claiming to have seen aliens, flying space craft etc. Some of these may be actual sightings; “if so they’re from the demonic for the purpose of causing disbelief IN the God of Creation, David‘s God.

Psalms 104:1 Praise the Lord, O my soul! O Lord my God, you are magnificent. You are robed in splendor and majesty. He covers Himself with light as if it were a garment.

He stretches out the skies like a tent curtain and lays the beams of the upper rooms of His palace on the rain clouds. He makes the clouds His chariot and travels along on the wings of the wind. He makes the winds His messengers and the flaming fire His attendant.

He established the earth on its foundations; it will never be upended. The watery deep covered it like a garment; the waters reached above the mountains. Your shout made the waters retreat; at the sound of Your thunderous voice they hurried off – as the mountains rose up, and the valleys went down – to the place You appointed for them. You set up a boundary for them that they could not cross, so that they would not cover the earth again.

He turns springs into streams; they flow between the mountains. They provide water for all the animals in the field; the wild donkeys quench their thirst. The birds of the sky live beside them; they chirp among the bushes.

He waters the mountains from the upper rooms of his palace; the earth is full of the fruit You cause to grow. He provides grass for the cattle and crops for people to cultivate, so they can produce food from the ground, as well as wine that makes people feel so good,

and so they can have oil to make their faces shine, as well as food that sustains people’s lives. The trees of the Lord receive all the rain they need, the cedars of Lebanon which He planted, where the birds make nests, near the evergreens in which the herons live.

The wild goats live in the high mountains; the rock badgers find safety in the cliffs.

He made the moon to mark the months, and the sun sets according to a regular schedule. You make it dark and night comes, during which all the beasts of the forest prowl around.

The lions roar for prey, seeking their food from God. When the sun rises, they withdraw

and sleep in their dens.

Men then go out to do their work and labor away until evening. How many living things you have made, O Lord! You have exhibited great skill in making all of them; the earth is full of the living things You have made. Over here is the deep, wide sea, which teems with innumerable swimming creatures, living things both small and large. The ships travel there and over here swims the whale you made to play in it. All of Your creatures wait for You to provide them with food on a regular basis. You give food to them and they receive it; You open your hand and they are filled with food. When You ignore them, they panic. When you take away their life’s breath, they die and return to dust.

When you send your life-giving breath, they are created, and you replenish the surface of the ground. May the splendor of the Lord endure! May the Lord find pleasure in the living things He has made! He looks down on the earth and it shakes;

He touches the mountains and they start to smolder.

I will sing to the Lord as long as I live; I will sing praise to my God as long as I exist! May my thoughts be pleasing to Him! I will rejoice in the Lord. May sinners disappear from the earth, and the wicked vanish! Praise the Lord, O my soul!

Praise the Lord!

Matt 24:24; For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the Elect.

Teachings of the Spirit of Truth, chapter 1

Saturday, August 10th, 2019

8/10/19, God’s 5th month, Av, 9, 5779 until sunset

To: Called to be atOne with God the Father and God the Son people, Heirs with Abraham.

As God is One so is His spirit, His church, His family, His way and truth. His gifting of His spirit of truth leads a person to genuine repentance - turning from personal agendas, what may have seemed right to the fleshly mind - nature, to the Jesus that’s manifested in the holy scriptures from Genesis through Revelations. (If spiritually led to do so, prayerfully review Col 1:15-20, John 1:1-5 and Hebrews 1: Then examine self in His Light.

Why would an organization of men, claiming to be Christ like, organize a calendar that incorporated all the pagan traditions of the very people whose lands God gave Israel? Practice their traditions that are abominations to our Creator? Make statutes drawing attention to nudity while worship the imaginary god of fertility, with rabbits, eggs etc. Why use the mother goddess, “Asherah’s” image, an imaginary sacred tree or pole as the Canaanite religions did to honor their imaginary Ugaritic-mother god? Why set aside the shortest day of the year as the pagans who worshiped the sun did and claim it Jesus’ birthday? Organizations of men, claiming to be followers of Jesus, set aside old pagan times and traditions on the Roman calendar to attract pagans societies. The answer: to attract people groups still practicing the abominations Jesus revealed through Moses and His apostles.

In Paul’s day many people from pagan cultures were called out through the hearing of Jesus’ good news about the kingdom of God. God the Father put these called Believers IN the message, in His Church, gifted them to understand His truths and turn from their previous practices. They became literal children of God, a chosen people gifted with the desire and effort to be atOne with Jesus and Godly repentance. Paul taught them, “God did it all.” That no person should boast of their spiritual understanding and their being saved by grace.

(1Corinthians 12:1-3; “With regard to spiritual gifts, brothers and sisters, I do not want you to be uninformed. You know that when YOU were PAGANS you were often led astray BY speechless idols, however you were led. (3) So I want you to understand that no one speaking by the Spirit of God says, “Jesus is cursed,” and no one can say, “Jesus is Lord,” EXCEPT by the Holy Spirit.”)

No one can say? Doesn’t mean “no on can speak these words” but that no one can knowingly by revelation say Jesus is the Son of God. Paul’s and our own conversions are our testimony. Until Jesus is supernaturally revealed with all the attributes described at “Colossians 1:15-20” to the mind, holy scripture identifies them as unbelieving - denominationalist as was Paul in his Pharisee religion. The fact: “until Jesus reveals Himself individually every person configures a god fitting their imagination.”   Christendom people DO speak the words, “Jesus is Lord” but they’re believers that, NOT believers IN.” (Paul is saying in reality; “until Jesus is revealed individually, no person can truthfully and knowingly say He’s my Lord.”) Paul explained that the desire and effort to worship in spirit and truth is gifted by God. (See Philippians 2:13)

Genuine spiritual calling and conversion is God’s fathering.

(1Cor 12:4-5; “Now there are different gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are different ministries, but the same Lord.”) God’s spiritual imputations, “His fathering individuals” is likened to human fathering in this regard. Differing gifts, talents and ministries are evident and not for individual acclaim or boasting.

(1Cor 12:6-11; “And there are different results, but the same God who produces all of them in everyone. To each person the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the benefit of all. (8) For one person is given through the Spirit, the message of wisdom, and another the message of knowledge according to the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, and to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit, to another performance of miracles, to another prophecy, and to another discernment of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, and to another the interpretation of tongues. It is one and the same Spirit, distributing as God decides to each person, who produces all these things.”)

GOD’S decision! No spiritual gift is ever given for self serving purposes, but to benefit all. No boasting except in the Lord.

(1Cor 12:12; “For just as the body is one and yet has many members, and all the members of the body – though many – are one body, so too is Christ.”)

The church body - family are atOne with God the Father and  God the Son. God’s Church is One as God, is One! A body of Believers IN “Christians” who aren’t in competition with one another. Divisions are the result of individuals with agendas thinking to highly of themselves and their intellect. That result soon becomes a lording over others self serving organization. Leaders desire a following of themselves.

(1Cor 12:13-18; “For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body. Whether Jews or Greeks or slaves or free, we were all made to drink of the one Spirit. For in fact the body ‘church’ is not a single member, but many. If the foot says, “Since I am not a hand, I am not part of the body,” it does not lose its membership in the body because of that. And if the ear says, “Since I am not an eye, I am not part of the body,” it does not lose its membership in the body because of that. If the whole body were an eye, what part would do the hearing? If the whole were an ear, what part would exercise the sense of smell? (18) But as a matter of fact, God has placed each of the members in the body just as He decided.)

(How awesome to know our all knowing Creator places each member of His church as He decides.) There’s no room for teaching a methodology nor boasting of a personal decision. NOTE the past tense, “as He decided.” When did He decide? PAUL explained this to the Ephesians and all Believers IN.

(Eph 1:3-8; “Blessed is the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with EVERY spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms in Christ. For He chose us in Christ BEFORE the foundation of the world that we may be holy and unblemished in His sight in love. (5) He did this by predestining US to adoption as HIS sons through Jesus Christ, according to the pleasure of HIS will – to the praise of the glory of HIS grace that HE has freely bestowed on us in His dearly loved Son. (7) In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace that He lavished on US in all wisdom and insight.”)

SEE? It’s all about gifted eternal life by grace through God the Father’s calling us to believe IN Jesus! All about God the Father revealing Himself and His Son “in His timing!”

Generally the self called Clergy are like the Sadducees who came to Jesus, attempting to analyze and question Him about the resurrection. (Mark 12:18-19; “Sadducees (who say there is no resurrection) also came to Him and asked Him, “Teacher, Moses wrote for us: ‘If a man’s brother dies and leaves a wife but no children, that man must marry the widow and father children for his brother.’ (Quote from Deut 25:5.) This practice was called levirate marriage (See also Ruth 4:1-12) Described in Deut 25:5-10. The brother of a man who died without a son had an obligation to marry his brother’s widow. Serving several purposes: (1) It provided for the widow in a society where widows with no children to care for them wouldn’t be reduced to begging, and (2) it preserved the name of the deceased, who would be regarded as the legal father of the first son produced from that marriage.

(Mark 12:20-25; “There were seven brothers. The first one married and when he died he had no children. The second married her and died without any children and likewise the third. None of the seven had children. Finally, the woman died too. (23) In the resurrection, when they rise again, whose wife will she be? For all seven had married her.”

(Mark 12:24-27; Jesus said to them, “Aren’t you deceived for this reason, because you don’t know the scriptures or the power of God? For when they rise from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven.” (26) Now as for the dead being raised, have you not read in the book of Moses, in the passage about the bush, how God said to him, ‘I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’? He is not the God of the dead but of the living. You are badly mistaken!”)

The first resurrection is to a spiritual life, Jesus had His apostle John explain. (1John 3:2-3 “Dear friends, “we followers of Jesus’ are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet been revealed. We know that whenever it is revealed we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is. And everyone who has this hope focused on Him purifies himself, just as Jesus is pure). “As God the Father and God the Son are One, “all God’s children are One in spirit now and will be as Jesus for all eternity. Sadducees questioning Jesus is much like Paul before his conversion and modern believers in a methodologist for salvation. They’re unbelievers who don’t know God the Son nor His Father’s all knowing agenda.

Jesus had Isaiah proclaim it. (Isa 43:10-12; You are my witnesses,” says the Lord,

“My servant whom I have chosen, so that you may consider and believe IN Me, and understand that I am He. No god was formed before Me, and none will outlive Me. I, I am the Lord, and there is no Deliverer besides Me. I decreed, delivered, proclaimed, and there was no other god among you. You ‘Israelites - Christians’ are My witnesses,” says the Lord, “that I am God.”)

(John 8:19; Then they began asking Him, “Who is your father?” Jesus answered, “You do not know either Me or My Father. If you knew Me you’d know My Father too.”

(John 8:21; Then Jesus said to them again, “I am going away, and you will look for Me but will die in your sin. Where I am going you cannot come.” (John 8:23-24 Jesus replied, “You people are from below; I am from above. You people are from this world; I am not from this world. Thus I told you that you will die in your sins. For unless you believe that I am He, you’ll die in your sins.”

8/8/19, God’s 5th month, Av, 7, 5779 until sunset

To: Called to be atOne with God the Father and God the Son people, Heirs with Abraham.

Yesterday’s commentary and Jesus’ apostle Paul’s defines the nature we inherited from Adam and “shares the human condition without God’s spirit imputed to the mind.” (The reality not understood by this age is, “conditions and each individual was pre-known by our all knowing Creator.”) So, Jesus could accurately prophecy about this latter age’s lack of love and Satan’s successes in deceiving the whole world; “particularly self called Clergy.” Without God’s calling, opening minds and intervening: “populations who aren’t taught to righteously respect authority soon surrender to self serving desires and such desires can succumb to demonism.” Followers of Jesus are gifted to understand Satan’s successes with politicians and all unbelievers; “the demonic among them can only see one side of an issue, twist words and deceive naïve populations.” But Satan’s deceptive work began way back with Adam, Eve and Cain particularly. He’s finishing his deceptive work by deceiving the whole world, “except if possible God’s Elect.

(Matt 24:24-25; “For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. Remember, I have told you ahead of time.”)

Truth seekers who love Jesus know we love Him because “He first loved us.” We’re called to the Light and to shun darkness. Jesus inspired and His apostle John wrote.

(1John 4:7-10; Dear friends, let us love one another, because love is from God, and everyone who loves has been fathered by God and knows God. The person who does not love does not know God, because God is love. By this the love of God is revealed in us: that God has sent His one and only Son into the world so that we may live through Him. (10) In this is love: not that we have loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins.

(1John 4:11-14; Dear friends, if God so loved us, then we also ought to love one another. No one has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God resides in us, and His love is perfected in us. By this we know that we reside in God and He in us: in that He has given us of His Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son to be the Savior of the world.”)

(1John 4:15-19; If anyone ‘knowingly’ confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God resides in him and he in God. And we have come to know and to believe the love that God has in us. God is love, and the one who resides in love resides in God, and God resides in him. (17) By this love is perfected with us, so that we may have confidence in the day of judgment, because just as Jesus is, so also are we in this world. There is no fear in love, perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears punishment has not been perfected in love. We love because He loved us first.”) (We may love an imaginary god, but we can’t love our Creator God as He’s manifested in the holy scriptures until He reveals Himself to us.)

There’s ONLY ONE solution for mankind’s problems! The return of Jesus with His angels and His Saints. He’ll taking governments from man and bring about His peace on earth. Thank God for His awesome truth. His weekly and annual Sabbaths that foreshadow His awesome plan for His spiritually created people will be celebrated. For example, God’s Passover season is set aside for His purposes. At least two major historical events were pre-planed from the foundation of the world to unfold on His Passover.

First. “God’s angel passed over Egypt, sparing Israelite and believers IN Israel’s God. Egyptian families, who had sacrificial blood on their door facing were also saved. All symbolizing Jesus’ shed blood, for the remission of the world’s sins.

Second: the same Son of God that has His death angel kill all firstborn’s in Egypt that didn’t have saving blood on their door, also instituted the Lord’s supper with His apostles. These two preplanned events were each on the fourteenth day of God’s first month.

(Leviticus 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 “the fifteenth” 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, “the twenty first” is a holy assembly; you must not do any regular work.’”)

Followers of Jesus need to look to God’s calendar! Paul shared it with Believing IN in his letter to the Roman Jews and non-Israelites. They were entrusted with the oracles, (knowing, wise things, prophetic, mysterious and puzzling to the world) of God.)

(Romans 3:1-4; “Therefore what advantage does the Jew have, or what is the value of circumcision? Actually, there are many advantages. First of all, the Jews were entrusted with the oracles of God. What then? If some did not believe, does their unbelief nullify the faithfulness of God? Absolutely not! Let God be proven true, and every human being shown up as a liar, just as it is written: “so that you will be justified in your words and will prevail when you are judged.”)

Consider the Godly traditions maintained by Judaism. In Jesus’ planned fulfillment of Passover, He set forth the event we know as “the Lord’s Supper.” Symbolizing the forgiveness of sin, ‘the taking in and clothing one’s self with Jesus.’ Eternal life through Himself, our healing through His broken body and our humbly love one another.

In Paul’s letter to the Corinth Church of God, he gave understanding about the Passover.

(1 Cor 11:17-26; “Now in giving the following instruction I do not praise you, because you come together, NOT for the better but for the worse. For in the first place, when you come together as a church I hear there are divisions among you, and in part I believe it. For there must in fact be divisions among you, so that those of you who are approved may be evident. Now when you, “who aren’t mature” come together at the same place, you are not really eating the Lord’s Supper. (21) For when it is time to eat, everyone proceeds with his own supper. One is hungry and another becomes drunk. Do you not have houses so that you can eat and drink? Or are you trying to show contempt for the Church of God by shaming those who have nothing? What should I say to you? Should I praise you? I will not praise you for this! (23) For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night in which He was betrayed took bread, and after He had given thanks He broke it and said, “This is My body, which is for you. Do this in remembrance of Me.” In the same way, He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. Do this, every time you drink it, in remembrance of Me.” For every time you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes.”)

The Passover should not be a celebratory day, but a time honoring the One who gave His life for the remission of sin. (Practicing events God made holy is to demonstrates to the world our belief in our Creator.) To forget these God gifted practices and celebrate worldly holidays, “demonstrates a love of the world.”

After twilight on the fourteenth of Nisan is Jesus’ Passover should be practiced as He instructed. Judaism Synagogues have calendars and they’re available on the internet. Days end and start at sunset and new months start on New Moons.

(1Cor 11:27-34; “For this reason, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. A person should examine himself first, and in this way let him eat the bread and drink of the cup. For the one who eats and drinks without careful regard for the body eats and drinks judgment against himself. (30) That is why many of you are weak and sick, and quite a few are dead. But IF we examined ourselves, we would not be judged. But when we are judged by the Lord, we are disciplined so that we may not be condemned with the world. So then, my brothers and sisters, when you come together to eat, wait for one another. (34) If anyone is hungry, let him eat at home, so that when you assemble it does not lead to judgment. I will give directions about other matters when I come.”)

God’s having the Israelites take leavening, “that which puffs up” out of their homes, looked forward to the need to examine one’s self. Lets look to God’s Word and seek understanding, “so we may worship honestly, in spirit and truth.” God’s Sabbaths are holy to Himself and His people. They’re times to remember and examine ourselves in Jesus’ Light.

: Heavenly Father: thank You for revealing that You’re indeed all in all. Thank You for each called out Believer IN and for these mind opening studies. Thank You for the seasons and what each foreshadows. Thank You for our coming millennial reign with Jesus. We praise You in Jesus’ holy name. AMEN.

Mockeries of Truth, chapter 22

Wednesday, August 7th, 2019

8/7/19, God’s 5th month, 6th day of Av, 5,779 until sunset. 

To: People called to be atOne with God the Father and God the Son.  “Heirs with Abraham.

Hatred of other people is demonic. It’s bought into by Clerics and world leaders, who’ve turned from the true God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Moses, “to a fictitious worship of the human intellect.” (Thinking human smarts can solve problems in our inherited nature and the human spirit.) It can’t, it’s impossible. Only genuine belief in the God of Creation “Jesus” and His truth “that demonism is real, can people understand that demonism is the cause of such hatred.” Its dismissed by Clerics, so called intellectuals and those looking up to them as superstition. The Son of God “Creator Jesus” prophesied about such spiritual blindness, “a waxing cold of love” that’d be a sign and cause of demonic division we’re experiencing today.

Before final judgment and the “abomination of desolation” taking place, “foreshadowed by the seventh annual Sabbath, The Last Great Day” expect Jesus’ Word fulfillment. (Matt  24:9-14; “Then they ‘demonic unbelievers’ will hand you over to be persecuted and will kill you. You ‘followers of Me’ will be hated by all the nations because of My name. (My nature in you.) 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. 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.”)

We can’t repeat it to often, “Christians are people “born from above” “a people whose nature is supernaturally changed, from the way of get, to the way of give.” A people to whom God’s nature is imputed, making them atOne with Him. (Their’s  is a love of God’s Way whose minds are imputed with Godly love.) Followers of Jesus aren’t under the law of Moses, “but lovingly under, submissive to and yielded to the Law of Christ.” Mindful that Jesus is the Lord God who gave Moses the ten commandments and oracles of God. So, from within our God gifted nature, we love God’s Ways and His ten commandments, recognizing they’re for our good. Paul proclaimed it.

(1Cor 11:10:23 “Everything is lawful,” but not everything is beneficial. “Everything is lawful,” but not everything builds others up. Do not seek your own good, but the good of the other person. Eat anything that is sold in the marketplace without questions of conscience, for the earth and its abundance are the Lord’s. (27) If an unbeliever invites you to dinner and you want to go, eat whatever is served without asking questions of conscience. But if someone says to you, “This is from a sacrifice,” do not eat, because of the one who told you and because of conscience. I do not mean yours but the other person’s. For why is my freedom being judged by another’s conscience? If I partake with thankfulness, why am I blamed for the food that I give thanks for? So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do everything for the glory of God. Do not give offense to Jews or Greeks or to the church of God, just as I also try to please everyone in all things. I do not seek my own benefit, but the benefit of many, so that they may be saved. (11:1) Be imitators of me, just as I also am of Christ.”)

Paul practiced Jesus’ Way. Turned from the Pharisee “denominational” way, to a love of God’s Way. Paul was gifted to understand, “it was Jesus who made promises to Abraham, led Israel from Egyptian bondage, “sin” AND gave Moses the ten commandments for our good.

(1Cor 11:2-3; “I praise you because you remember me in everything and maintain the traditions just as I passed them on to you. But I want you to know that Christ is the head of every man, and the man is the head of a woman, and God, “the Father” is the head of Christ.”)

Each apostle was gifted to recognize, “God the Father and God the Son are as One, singleness of mind and purpose.” Thus God is One. The two are as One! “As a husband, wife relationship should be, as Christians are called to be atOne with God.” Submissive to God’s authority is a God gifted virtue!” Jesus submitted to His Father and will remain submissive, “even when New Jerusalem comes down.” (Study Revelations 21:)

Intellectuals and those with much substance are less likely to be submissive.

(1 Cor 11:4-16; “Any man who prays or prophesies with his head covered disgraces his head. But any woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered disgraces her head, for it is one and the same thing as having a shaved head. For if a woman will not cover her head, she should cut off her hair. But if it is disgraceful for a woman to have her hair cut off or her head shaved, she should cover her head. For a man should not have his head covered, since he is the image and glory of God. But the woman is the glory of the man. For man did not come from woman, but woman from man. Neither was man created for the sake of woman, but woman for man. For this reason a woman should have a symbol of authority on her head, because of the angels. In any case, in the Lord woman is not independent of man, nor is man independent of woman. (12) For just as woman came from man, so man comes through woman. But all things come from God. Judge for yourselves: Is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered? (14) Does not nature itself teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a disgrace for him but if a woman has long hair, it is her glory? For her hair is given to her for a covering. If anyone intends to quarrel about this, we have no other practice, nor do the churches of God.”)

God made male and female in His image, feminism and masculinity are Godly virtues. For people to be otherwise is an abomination to God and must ultimately be repented of, or die a second death. Revisit Revelations 21:8.

Jesus foretold the status quo we find the world in today. Genuine Godly love has waxed cold and Christendom has found it’s comfort zone among, “the just as I am crowd.” Review Matt 24:9-13, Jesus is speaking to future Believers IN Himself.) This truth is revealed to followers of Jesus and hidden from this unbelieving world’s populations.

Speaking of Himself, Jesus said to the Israelites. Matt 21:42-46; “Have you never read in the scriptures: ‘The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone. This is from the Lord, and it is marvelous in our eyes’? For this reason I tell you that the kingdom of God will be taken from you “Israelites” and given to a people who will produce its fruit, “Believers IN - Spiritual Israelites.” The one who falls on this Stone will be broken to pieces, and the one on whom it, “this Stone” falls will be crushed.” (Jesus is going to forcefully take this world’s governments.) When the chief priests and the Pharisees heard His parables, they realized that He was speaking about them. They wanted to arrest Him, but they were afraid of the crowds, because the crowds regarded Him as a prophet.”) (Some translations use “capstone” in verse 42.) Cornerstone is more accurate because the imagery is explained in Eph 2:20-22 and 1Cor 3:11. The original Greek refers to a cornerstone, not a capstone. (“The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone” is used in Ps 118:22-23” (“Stone imagery” is a reference to Christ, His suffering and exaltation is common in the New Testament (See also Mark 12:10; Luke 20:17; Acts 4:11; 1 Pet 2:6-8 and Eph 2:20). The irony of it’s use in, Psalms 118:22-23, is that gentiles and Israelites will reject the coming King.

(The stone which the builders discarded has become the cornerstone. This is the Lord’s work. We consider it amazing!)

Detouring a bit.

Paul’s speaking of “time being short” in his Corinthian letters caused us to go off on a tangent we hope is helpful. Conditions and times in Paul’s day was concerning to him.

When we get to the times Jesus described in Matthew 24: “UNLESS God really cuts time shorter than scheduled, “no one will be saved!” We must call this to the attention of Christians in this latter age. We’re very concerned about the hard times coming on this world and praying that His kingdom soon come. A primary concern of Paul’s was to “keep God’s church at Corinth pure.” Do today’s theologians care about pureness in the church? The city of Corinth’s population was mostly non-Israelite. Characteristically gentiles were thought of as idol worshipers more so than Israelites because Israelites traditionally kept a semblance of God’s ten commandments. However the Israelites were often taken in by the gentiles’ worshiping imaginary gods.

Our understanding is helped when we realize that Paul is writing his first Corinthian letter, “during or soon after the Passover and Feast of Unleavened Bread season.” A time God set aside “for self examination; putting sin away and personal purification.” It’s important to understanding that Jesus is the Alpha and Omega as His apostles taught.

Paul defined Jesus as did John at John 1:1-5 and Hebrews 1:.

(Col 1:15-20; “Jesus is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation, for all things in heaven and on earth were created by Him – all things, whether visible or invisible, whether thrones or dominions, whether principalities or powers – all things were created through Him and for Him. He Himself is before all things and all things are held together in Him. He is the head of the body, the church, as well as the beginning, the firstborn from among the dead, so that He Himself may become first in all things. For God was pleased to have all His fullness dwell in the Son and through Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by making peace through the blood of His cross – through Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven.)

God the Father and God the Son are living spirits that can manifest Themselves and angelic beings physically. (I haven’t knowingly seen one, but scripture indicates Satan and demons can manifest themselves in various forms.) God’s spirit emitting from Themselves is holy. Through God the Father’s spirit, Jesus was begotten, “fathered.” Jesus was holy in the womb. Through His gifted Holy Spirit God makes His chosen people “literal Children.” Miraculously His spiritual children are, “born from above” “born again” “begotten” or “fathered.” It’s the mystery of the ages! Spiritually gifted followers of Jesus are transformed, from being fleshly minded to being spiritual thinking people.
