Spirit of Truth, chapter 5

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.
