Holy God: Your inspired holy scriptures demonstrate our unworthiness, “that we’re born with a lawless, “sin” nature.” Before You revealed Jesus our unbelieving minds yield to our inherited fleshly nature. Before then we each went the way that seemed right to our inherited from Adam nature. Thank You for revealing Jesus and in His nature we praise You. AMEN.

Spiritual studies aren’t intended for the world at large, “but for people to whom God is calling. Likewise Paul’s letters were to the converted followers of Jesus. Not atheist, agnostics or denominational minded people like the die hard Pharisees and pagan groups. The many Jesus’ apostles encountered refused to believe IN because they were in their Satan inspired comfort zone. He’s the deceiver and divider of people teaching against God’s truth.

Judaism, Islamist denominationalist and others using various forms of God’s name voice a respect for ”people of the book” the old testament particularly. Denying Jesus was and is the Son of God, ’the Alpha and Omega, the prophesied Lamb of God, Re-creator, Creator, Savior, Deliverer, Mediator and coming King of Kings. He came as prophesied to save sinners from the result of their sin nature. The world doesn’t grasp the deity of Jesus and old testament prophecies regarding the Messiah’s mission and purpose. The many can’t understand that each individual must have their lawless “sins” nature supernaturally changed to that of Jesus’. That only through Jesus is eternal life inherited. That “in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive, each in their own order, Christ the firstfruits; then when Christ comes, those who belong to Him.” 1Cor 15:22”

All worldly denominational religions are deceived by Satan, “to believe in some form of people being born with immortality.” (Blinded to scriptural teaching “immortality is gifted by God through Jesus and by His grace.”) Understanding this mystery was hidden from the world until God’s appointed time to reveal the Originator of life, “Jesus.”

(Mark 4:10-12; “When Jesus was alone, those around Him with the twelve asked Him about the parables. Jesus 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.’) Jesus is the One inspiring Isaiah to write likewise long before.

(Isaiah 6:9-10; “He “the Lord who became Jesus” said, “Go and tell these people: ‘Listen continually, but don’t understand! Look continually, but don’t perceive!’ Make the hearts of these people calloused; make their ears deaf and their eyes blind! Otherwise they might see with their eyes and hear with their ears, their hearts might understand and they might repent and be healed.”)

It isn’t in God’s timing that Jesus be revealed to the whole world just yet! Why? It’s all about God’s planning, timing and His choosing! It’s all about Jesus being believed IN! (Restudy John 1:1-5, Colossians 1:15-20 and Hebrews 1: It’s also about God’s principle “the last becoming first.” People in this latter age, “age since Jesus’ ascension” and the millennial age to come. Paul explained to the Romans.

(Romans 11:25-27; “For I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers and sisters, so that you may not be conceited: a partial hardening has happened to Israel until the full number of the Gentiles has come in. And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: “The Deliverer will come out of Zion; He will remove ungodliness from Jacob. And this is My covenant with them, when I take away their sins.” (Paul is quoting from Isaiah 27:9 & Jeremiah 31:33-34. ALL ISRAEL will be resurrected!)

(Romans 16:25-27; “Now to Him who is able to strengthen you according to my gospel and the proclamation of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery that had been kept secret for long ages, but now is disclosed, and through the prophetic scriptures has been made known to all the nations, according to the command of the eternal God, to bring about the obedience of faith – to the only wise God, through Jesus Christ, be glory forever! Amen.”

Jesus’ good news isn’t ONLY about Satan’s erroneous demonic doctrine, saying to Eve, “Surely you will not die, for God knows that when you eat from it “the forbidden fruit” your eyes will open and you will be like divine beings who know good and evil.” (Gen 3:5) Satan lied and called God a liar. Jesus’ good news is about God the Father’s giving immortality through Him, His return revealing Himself to the world and bringing peace!

All people have inherited eternal death from and through inheriting Adam’s nature. Eternal life is only through the life giver “those believing IN His shed blood for the remission of their sins. (Again we refer to John 1:1-5, Colossians 1:15-20 & Hebrews 1: Let’s digest and review now.

The Light

(1Cor 15:20-28; “But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead also came through a man. For just as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive. But each in his own order: Christ, the firstfruits; 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 must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet. (26) 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. “Jesus” (28) 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.)

Through Adam, all people inherited eternal death; not an immortal soul! The result of sin is death! (See 1John 3:4)

(1Cor 15:56-58; “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! (the Redeemer) 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.”) Followers of Jesus, need to be mindful of being firm, overcoming to the end.

(1Peter 5:8-11; “Our enemy the devil, like a roaring lion, is on the prowl looking for someone to devour. Resist him, strong in your faith, because you know that your brothers and sisters throughout the world are enduring the same kinds of suffering. And, after you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace who CALLED you to His eternal glory in Christ will Himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you. To him belongs the power forever. Amen.)

Like a roaring lion, Satan placed imposters in God’s churches during the apostolic days and now the whole world is deceived by his inspired false teachers.

Jesus’ brother ‘Jude’ wrote of the apostate he witnessed taking place. He intended to write about our common salvation; that is, “God’s gifting individuals with His spirit.” But Jude was spirit led “instead to write about the apostate already taking place.” Study Jude. That apostate included twisting and changing the will of God.

(1Cor 16:1-4; “With regard to the collection for the saints, please follow the directions that I gave to the churches of Galatia: On the first day of the week, each of you should set aside some income and save it to the extent that God has blessed you, so that a collection will not have to be made when I come. Then, when I arrive, I will send those whom you approve with letters of explanation to carry your gift to Jerusalem. And if it seems advisable that I should go also, they will go with me.”)

WHY set aside a gift on the first day of the week? NOT to keep the day holy! NOT necessarily to teach on that day! But to set aside foods, clothing and money; so there’d be no collection when I come. Worldly religions want to find reasons NOT to be obedient! Why would the same God who set aside the Sabbath for the good of His people change it? Did we not just study, “you followers of Jesus 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 ‘Christians’ also are being built together into a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.” Eph 2:20-22.

People teaching such changes have the same mindset Cain demonstrated, “sacrificing differently than God commanded.”

(1Cor 16:5-9; “But I will come to you after I have gone through Macedonia – for I will be going through Macedonia – and perhaps I will stay with you, or even spend the winter, so that you can send me on my journey, wherever I go. (7) For I do not want to see you now in passing, since I hope to spend some time with you, if the Lord allows. But I will stay in Ephesus until Pentecost, (9) because a door of great opportunity stands wide open for me, but there are many opponents.”)

Consider the times. The apostles and Believers IN had many opponents! Do we have fewer in this age? Why would Paul want to stay in Ephesus until Pentecost? He was keeping the day and likely did not want to be traveling on God’s third annual Sabbath and birth date of His New Covenant Church. His people are still mindful of His Sabbaths; weekly and annual.

(1Cor 16:12-14; “With regard to our brother Apollos: I strongly encouraged him to visit you with the other brothers, but it was simply not his intention to come now. He will come when he has the opportunity. Stay alert, stand firm in the faith, show courage, be strong. Everything you do should be done in love.”)

Remember the love chapter, “1Corinthians 13:” It’s worth a re-study. Do everything in love. Do every thing to build up!

(1Cor 16:15-21; “Now, brothers and sisters, you know about the household of Stephanus, that as the first converts of Achaia, they devoted themselves to ministry for the Saints. I urge you also to submit to people like this, and to everyone who cooperates in the work and labors hard. I was glad about the arrival of Stephanus, Fortunatus, and Achaicus because they have supplied the fellowship with you that I lacked. (18) For they refreshed my spirit and yours. So then, recognize people like this. The churches in the province of Asia send greetings to you. Aquila and Priscilla greet you warmly in the Lord, with the church that meets in their house. All the brothers and sisters send greetings. Greet one another with a holy kiss. I, Paul, send this greeting with my own hand. )

Paul was apparently the most traveled apostle we’ve record of. Today, people think of church as a building where preaching lectures occur. NO. God’s people are His church! In the apostolic age, “teaching Jesus Him crucified for the remission of sins was the message and time was allotted for congregational discussion.” Each Believer alert for possible revelations. Formal type lectures and books guiding people to a particular denominational doctrine only became popular during the fifteenth century.
