To: 24,426  “In Resident Churches of God” people called to be ‘atOne’ with Him.

    The same Creator Lord Jesus who re-created fish and bread feeding thousands more than once, resurrecting Lazarus to physical life and did even greater miracles through His apostles.  Long before doing miracles through Moses.

    (Exodus 17:5-6; The Lord said to Moses, “Go over before the people; take with you some of the elders of Israel and take in your hand your staff with which you struck the Nile and go. I will be standing before you there on the rock in Horeb, and you will strike the rock and water will come out of it so that the people may drink.” And Moses did so in plain view of the elders of Israel.”)

    As life giver Jesus purposely waited four days before resurrecting Lazarus back to physical life. He healed many through Peter’s shadow passing over them, healed and gave physical life back to people through His apostles.

   (Acts 9:32-35; Now as Peter was traveling around from place to place, he also came down to the saints who lived in Lydda.  He found there a man named Aeneas who had been confined to a mattress for eight years because he was paralyzed. (34) Peter said to him, “Aeneas, Jesus the Christ heals you. Get up and make your own bed!” And immediately he got up. All those who lived in Lydda and Sharon saw him, and they turned to the Lord.”)

    Perhaps many communities would turn to the Lord Jesus, if such miracles were done for people as documented to have been to this paralyzed man.

Jesus Raised Dorcas through Peter.

   (Acts 9:36-43;  “Now in Joppa there was a disciple named Tabitha (which in translation means Dorcas). She was continually doing good deeds and acts of charity. At that time she became sick and died. When they had washed her body, they placed it in an upstairs room. (38) Because Lydda was near Joppa, when the disciples heard that Peter was there, they sent two men to him and urged him, “Come to us without delay.” So Peter got up and went with them, and when he arrived they brought him to the upper room. All the widows stood beside him, crying and showing him the tunics and other clothing Dorcas used to make while she was with them. (40) But Peter sent them all outside, knelt down, and prayed. Turning to the body, he said, “Tabitha, get up.” Then she opened her eyes, and when she saw Peter, she sat up. He gave her his hand and helped her get up. Then he called the Saints and widows and presented her alive. This became known throughout all Joppa, and many believed in the Lord. (43 ) So Peter stayed many days in Joppa with a man named Simon, a tanner.”)

    Lazarus and Tabitha experienced another “a beginning.” We experience beginnings throughout life as do places after earthquakes and nations after new governments. (We and most so called scholars believe Genesis was revealed to Moses in the Hebrew language; “revealed by God and written through Moses. The New Testament was mostly written in Greek and authenticated by Jesus’ apostle John)

   Many manuscript researches and some language translators work with agendas. Truth is better served through old and New Testament comparisons. The following italicized additions fit with Jesus’ Re-creative powers and Peter’s understanding.

    Let’s review. (Genesis 1:1-5; “In the ‘A’ beginning’ God created the heavens and the earth. (2) Now ‘at the time’ the earth was without shape and empty, and darkness was over the surface of the watery deep, but the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the water. God said, “Let there be light.” And there was light! God saw that the light was good, so God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day” and the darkness “night.” There was evening, and there was morning, marking the first day.”)

   With such understandings believers of evolutionist, agnostics, nonbelievers and science have no sound argument against God being Creator. Also few professing Christians believe IN Jesus’ profound words as written in the likes of Matthews 24th chapter. (Matt 24:9-14; “Then they (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 ‘nature - characteristics.’ (10) 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 ‘sin’ will increase so much, the love of many will grow cold. (13) But the person who endures to the end will be saved. (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.”)

    Popular teachings in our communities about Jesus are not His truths. People love teachings that border on evolving superstitions and a condoning a Jesus that came to do away with God the Father’s ways. People in general love demonic lies.

   Jesus’ prophecy specifies several things we need to watch for. (1) All but His Elect will be deceived. (2) Truth so diluted that Satan and his followers manifesting themselves as angels of light will be accepted. (3) Daniel’s prophecy about the abomination of desolation taking place. See Daniel 9: (4) A final fulfillment likened to the events of A.D. 70, when Antiochus’ IV abominations in 167 B.C. committed abominable to God sacrifices. Apparently a final fulfillment will occur in the end time tribulation age. Jesus indicates Antiochus’ abomination aren’t final fulfillments. (See Mark 13:14, 19, 24; and Rev 3:10). The demonic hatred of Jews is part of the abomination.

    (Matthew 24:15-22; “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. (19) 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. (22) 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.”)

   It’s revealed through Paul and to all called out followers of Jesus that Believers IN are individually houses of His Energizing Holy Spirit representing His church. Jesus reveals the good and bad characteristics to His believing people, His church.

Study Revelations 2: and 3: to discover things we need to overcome.

   (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.”)

    Satan has so divided religions using Jesus’ name that many organizations assume Jesus’ good news is being proclaimed by them. Jesus has that too preplanned.

   (Revelations 11:1-13; “Then a measuring rod like a staff was given to me ‘John’ and I was told, “Get up and measure the temple of God and the altar, and the ones who worship there. But do not measure the outer courtyard of the temple; leave it out, because it has been given to the Gentiles, and they will trample on the holy city for forty-two months.(3) And I ‘Jesus’ will grant My two witnesses authority to prophesy ‘teach’ for 1,260 days, dressed in sackcloth. (These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands that stand before the Lord of the earth.) (Seven stars and seven golden lampstants? (Rev 1:20 “The mystery of the seven stars that you saw in My right hand and the seven golden lampstands is this: The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.)

    (Rev 11:5-14; “If anyone wants to harm them, fire comes out of their mouths and completely consumes their enemies. If anyone wants to harm them, they must be killed this way. These two ‘witnesses’ have the power to close up the sky so that it does not rain during the time they are prophesying. They have power to turn the waters to blood and to strike the earth with every kind of plague whenever they want. (7) When they have completed their testimony, the beast that comes up from the abyss will make war on them and conquer them and kill them. (8) Their corpses will lie in the street of the great city that is symbolically called Sodom and Egypt, where their Lord was also crucified. For three and a half days those from every people, tribe, nation, and language will look at their corpses, because they will not permit them to be placed in a tomb. (10) And those who live on the earth will rejoice over them and celebrate, even sending gifts to each other, because these two prophets had tormented those who live on the earth. (11) But after three and a half days a breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and tremendous fear seized those who were watching them. (12) Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them: “Come up here!” So the two prophets went up to heaven in a cloud while their enemies stared at them. (13) Just  then a major earthquake took place and a tenth of the city collapsed; seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake, and the rest were terrified and gave glory to the God of heaven.” The second woe has come and gone; the third is coming quickly.”)

    What will the message of the two witnesses, “prophets, teachers” be?” The message of truth as proclaimed by Jesus, His prophets, apostles and followers. Their message like Jesus’ will be hated by the world. The Elect are those to whom God the Father selects, reveals Himself, His Son and His message of truth.

    Remain loyal to the Lord, you chosen people of His, for His loyal followers lack nothing!

   (Psalms 34:10-18; Even young lions sometimes lack food and are hungry, but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing. Come children! Listen to me! I will teach you what it means to fear the Lord. Do you want to really live? Would you love to live a long, happy life? Then make sure you don’t speak evil words or use deceptive speech! Turn away from evil and do what is right! Strive for peace and promote it! The Lord pays attention to the godly and hears their cry for help. But the Lord opposes evildoers and wipes out all memory of them from the earth. The godly cry out and the Lord hears; He saves them from all their troubles. The Lord is near the brokenhearted; He delivers those who are discouraged.

(19-32; The godly face many dangers, but the Lord saves them from each one of them. He protects all his bones; not one of them is broken. Evil people self-destruct; those who hate the godly are punished. The Lord rescues His servants; all who take shelter in Him escape punishment.”)

Divided of mind individuals, unbelievers, people looking superstitiously to religions, families and divided nations are on a self-destruction path of their own making.
