Mockeries of Truth, chapter 19

8/1/19, God’s 4th month, 28th day of Tamuz, 5,779 until sunset. 

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

Prosperous - not so prosperous nations “who don’t give God thanks for blessings are belligerent in many ways.” Boastfulness about space explorations, attempting to outdo one another with weapons of war is the demonic way and leading to destruction. It’s a repeat of the Babylon experience we’ll speak to later. Only Believers IN understand.

(Matthew 19:29-30; “And whoever has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or fields for My sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life. (30) But many who are first will be last, and the last first.”)

“Last” obviously refers to people who’re called to serve in this age since Jesus’ ascension. Only recipients of God’s holy spirit of truth have Jesus’ mindset on the subject. Lets review.

(John 7:37-39; “On the last day of the feast, “of Tabernacles” 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, “Jesus” said this about the Spirit, whom those who believe IN Him were going to receive, for the Spirit had not yet been given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.)

As noted in a previous study, Jesus instructed His followers to stay in Jerusalem, “until I send you what My Father promised.”

(Luke 24:48-49; “You ‘apostles’ are witnesses of these things. And look, I am sending you what My Father promised. But stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.”)

God’s imputed spirit to the mind “is a clothing an immersing with a desire to be atOne with Him.” Recipients of God’s spirit, “are each literal children of God the Father” and His foundational calendar given to His set aside people. A calendar rooted with the Israelites after inheriting the Judean area. His calendar day count began on re-creation day at sunset. As the earth turns on it‘s axis days start and end at sunset. (It’s a good time to entertain that this earth as we know it is a re-creation.” The Noah time flood wasn’t the first. The first apparently destroyed and set the stage for earth’s re-creation and life creations as we observe today.

Preparing to make the way for God’s chosen to be atOne with Himself includes His pre-planning the rise and fall of nations. Satan’s role in confusing people with high minded ambitions to assert self ruling dominions: “leading people to think one world governing authority without God.” God gives us the history of Babylon for our learning.

Genesis 11:1-4; “The whole earth had a common language and a common vocabulary. When the people moved eastward, they found a plain in Shinar and settled there. Then they said to one another, “Come, let’s make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” (They had brick instead of stone and tar instead of mortar.) Then they said, “Come, let’s build ourselves a city and a tower with its top in the heavens so that we may make a name for ourselves. Otherwise we will be scattered across the face of the entire earth.” (God was then and is still allowing mankind to go the way that seems right to himself.)

(Gen 11:5-9; “But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower that the people had started building. And the Lord said, “If as one people all sharing a common language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be beyond them. Come, let’s go down and confuse their language so they won’t be able to understand each other.” So the Lord scattered them from there across the face of the entire earth, and they stopped building the city. That is why its name was called Babel – because there the Lord confused the language of the entire world, and from there the Lord scattered them across the face of the entire earth.”)

Babel, “a parody on the pride of Babylon.” In Babylonian literature the name “bab-ili” meant “the gate of God.” Hebrew’s language meaning is confusion. Apparently Satan was privileged to know “God’s plan for gifting people with eternal life and His millennial reign on earth shared with them.” So Satan planned a counterfeit, “attempting to confuse, make diversion and destructive wars.” But God’s plan is sure and He’ll cut time short for the Elect’s sake. (Again, study Matthew 24:) A single governing authority instigated by Satan using man will be short lived. Satan was the influence behind the people of old Babylon and is influencing today’s leaders. A counterfeit peace and a dark demonic system is now moving the world toward a demonic centralization.

Satan’s influences on people really took hold when he influenced the nations to adopt a calendar based on the western hemisphere winter equinox and traditions from gentile people’s imaginary gods. Non-Israelite cultures had long since adopted various forms of sun and planet worship, so with demonic influence, about 300 years after Jesus’ ascension Satan inspired the demonic equinox centered calendar that helps camouflage Jesus’ Way. Pushing a proselyte, “world wide belief” of paganism on societies. Thus, counterfeit Christianity and other cults. (Pagan customs carried over from the very people whose lands God gave the Israelites because of their sins, are wide spread among people using Jesus’ name.)

According to the prophecies Jesus gives us  through His prophet Daniel, “and alluded to personally” Satan’s demonic world wide system is on a destructive path. The adoption of Satan’s lies and systems of things has and will continue to cause persecutions of God’s people. Jesus and His apostles gave their lives for His truths.

(Matthew 24:9-28; “Then they will hand you, “followers of Me” over to be persecuted and will kill you. You will be hated by all the nations because of My name. Then many will be led into sin, and they will betray one another and hate one another. And many false prophets will appear and deceive many, and because lawlessness will increase so much, the love of many will grow cold. (13) But the person who endures to the end will be saved. 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.”)

The end of this age; “end of this world’s system as we know it.” Then the beginning of a new age of peace and righteous judgment. God’s truth will then cover as water covers the sea. Satan will be bound and God’s calendar revealed universally.

(Matthew 24:15-28; “So when you see the abomination of desolation – spoken about by Daniel the prophet – standing in the holy place (let the reader understand), then those in Judea must flee to the mountains. The one on the roof must not come down to take anything out of his house, and the one in the field must not turn back to get his cloak. Woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing their babies in those days! Pray that your flight may not be in winter or on a Sabbath. For then there will be great suffering unlike anything that has happened from the beginning of the world until now, or ever will happen. And if those days had not been cut short, no one would be saved. But for the sake of the Elect those days will be cut short. (23) Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There He is!’ do not believe him. 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. So then, if someone says to you, ‘Look, He is in the wilderness,’ do not go out, or ‘Look, He is in the inner rooms,’ do not believe him. For just like the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so the coming of the Son of Man will be. Wherever the corpse is, there the vultures will gather.”)

We don’t claim to know all the particulars of “abomination of destination” part of it is apparently desecrating holy sites and particularly God’s calendar which the hostile unbelieving world hates. These truths went out and are still going out as a witness to the nations, “from several God ordained sources.”

After Jesus gave the multitude His parable about the sowers of seed; Jesus explained the parable to His disciples. (Mark 4:10-12; When Jesus was alone, those around Him with the twelve asked Him about the parables. He said to them, “The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those outside, everything is in parables, so that although they look they may look but not see, and although they hear they may hear but not understand, so they may not repent and be forgiven.” (Quoting the words He gave Isaiah and had recorded at Isaiah 6:9-10, “thus parables both conceal or reveal depending on whether one is open to hearing what they teach”)

(Matt 4:13-20; Jesus said to them, “Don’t you understand this parable? Then how will you understand any parable? The sower sows the Word. These “people” are the ones on the path where the Word is sown: Whenever they hear, immediately Satan comes and snatches the Word that was sown “spoken” to them. These “words” are the ones sown on rocky ground: As soon as they hear the Word, they receive it with joy. But they have no root in themselves “weak ones, not believing IN” and do not endure. Then, when trouble or persecution comes, because of the Word, immediately they fall away. (18) Others are the ones sown among thorns: They are those who hear the Word, but worldly cares, the seductiveness of wealth, and the desire for other things come in and choke the Word, and it produces nothing. But these are the ones sown on good soil: They hear the Word and receive it and bear fruit, one thirty times as much, one sixty, and one a hundred.”)

Paul knew Jesus’ prophecy through Daniel and Jesus’ alluding to it. So Paul thinking these prophetic times were at hand, advised the people accordingly. Paul’s concern about socializing with idol worshiper practices was for those weak in the faith.

We Christians may not recognize individuals God is calling; “so it seems that we should assume it could be anyone.” Paul’s practices made him free and he didn’t want to cause a weak person to falter.

(1Cor 9:1-5; “Am I not free? Am I not an apostle? Have I not seen Jesus our Lord? Are you not my work in the Lord? If I am not an apostle to others, at least I am to you, for you are the confirming sign of my apostleship in the Lord. (3) This is my defense to those who examine me. Do we not have the right to financial support? Do we not have the right to the company of a believing wife, like the other apostles and the Lord’s brothers and Peter?”)

Paul taught that his work as an apostle should be supported by Believers IN, but he never taught or insinuated that the people under worldly governments taxation systems should tithe. God’s tithing system was to support the synagogues, priest, government under His direction and a welfare system. We should give for the spreading of Jesus’ good news according to gifted desire, effort and ability. Note: Paul indicated James and Peter had wives.
