Mockeries of Truth, chapter 23

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.
