To: 35,762 subscribers we pray “God is making temples of His Spirit.” 5/17/22, God’s 2nd Mo. Lyyer 16, 5,782, day

    The word “testament” means “proof” something that shows something else exists or is true. (Example: His remarkable recovery is a testament to the doctor’s skill. (2) A formal statement of beliefs or speech outlining beliefs.) A will is a covenant from one, ‘a contract to be validated after the death of the testator.’ Our Creator, ‘Lord Jesus’ is the Testator of His old and new covenants. (Each covenant gives the promises of eternal life to His chosen.) Testator, ‘Son of God Jesus’ was given that authority from God the Father.

   (See Heb 1: John 1:1-5 & Col 1:15-20) The old testament always looked forward to the new, Jesus revealed and Moses wrote: (Deuteronomy 18:15-22; The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you – from your fellow Israelites; you must listen to him. This accords with what happened at Horeb in the day of the assembly. You asked the Lord your God: “Please do not make us hear the voice of the Lord our God any more or see this great fire anymore lest we die.” The Lord then said to me, “What they have said is good. I will raise up a prophet like you for them from among their fellow Israelites. I will put My words in His mouth, and He will speak to them whatever I command. I will personally hold responsible anyone who then pays no attention to the words that prophet speaks in My name.

   “But if any prophet presumes to speak anything in My name that I have not authorized him to speak, or speaks in the name of other gods, that prophet must die. Now if you say to yourselves, ‘How can we tell, that a message is not from the Lord?’ whenever a prophet speaks in My name and the prediction is not fulfilled, then I have not spoken it; the prophet has presumed to speak it, so you need not fear him.”)

   We who copy from God’s word aren’t prophesying of our own accord, but repeating God’s revelations to His prophets and apostles. As we studied from Hebrews last time, “the Testator of the old died, to usher in the new one.” The parallels of the two testaments revolves around, “promises, mercy and grace to the called.” This particular ‘New Testament beginning is through Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.’ The Lord God Jesus was their; and is our Lord God.

   He miraculously came in the flesh fulfilling what was prophesied about Him, and He prophesied about this latter age, saying: (Matt 24:22-24; “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. 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.”)

    As the Son of God, Messiah, Deliverer, Lord, Savior and coming king of kings, this Jesus died for the remission of our and the world’s sins; He’s the Alpha and Omega, the first and last, to whom all power is given from God the Father. (His testament promises to Enoch, Noah, the Patriarchs and called out heirs with Abraham, are perpetual and always looked forward to His shed blood sacrifice for the remission of sin.) (As Testator of His will, Jesus’ sacrificial death made His Covenant promise of eternal life through Him valid.) Whether looking forward, or back, Jesus’ covenant promise of eternal life is through His sacrificial death. God’s new covenant promise of the imputation of His spirit living in followers of Jesus, are also Abraham’s heirs and validated through the Testator’s death, resurrection, and ascension. (It’s the primary fulfillment of Jesus’ covenant promise with Abraham.)

   Covenant promises to Abraham included Israel’s deliverance from Egypt, and the world, (each representing a deliverance from sinful conditions.) It’s a like deliverance of Abraham’s spiritual chosen descendants, ‘Christians.’ A spiritual deliverance from our inherited from Adam, sin nature, to worship and serve God in spirit and truth.

  Israelites’ physical deliverance under Moses was the keeping of stage one promise, called the Old Testament Covenant. (God promised blessings if they obeyed and they agreed.) Their Disobedience broke that contract, so they were dispersed to gentile countries. However, the Patriarchs, Moses, Joshua and others were gifted to look forward in hope faith in a future resurrection and deliverance. (See Isaiah 22: 35: 51-53: 65: Jeremiah 31: and Amos 9:11-15 for starters.)

  The Son of God ‘Jesus’ is Creator, Re-Creator, Deliverer, Mediator and the Savior whose death seals all God’s promises. He is now at the right hand of God the Father, serving as our Mediator before His throne. (He is worthy because He lived in the flesh and experienced temptations like ours.) His Elect are gifted to understand His message of mercy, grace and deliverance thus, the Elect aren’t going to be deceived. Jesus’ apostle Paul explains.

  (1Corinthians 15:20-28; “But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the first-fruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since death came through a man, (Adam) the resurrection of the dead also came through a man (Jesus.) For just as in Adam all die, ‘so also in Christ all will be made alive.’ But each in his own order: Christ, the first fruits; then when Christ comes, those who belong to Him. Then comes the end, when Jesus 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, “God the Father” who put everything in subjection to Him. And when all things are subjected to (God the Father) then the Son Himself will be subjected to the One (God the Father) who subjected everything to Him, so that God may be all in all.) HOW AWESOME, WHAT A FUTURE, and ‘each in his own order’ indicates several physical resurrections.

   Heb 9:15-28; “And so Jesus is the Mediator of a new covenant, so that those who are CALLED may receive the eternal inheritance He has promised, since He died to set them free from the violations committed under the first covenant. For where there is a will, the death of the One who made it (the will) must be proven. For a will takes effect only at death, since it carries no force while the one who made it is alive. So even the first covenant was inaugurated with blood. For when Moses had spoken every command to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and goats with water and scarlet wool and hyssop and sprinkled both the book itself and all the people and said, “This is the blood of the covenant that God has commanded you to keep.” And both the tabernacle and all the utensils of worship he (Moses) likewise sprinkled with blood. Indeed, according to the law almost everything was purified with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgivenessSo, it was necessary for the sketches of the things in heaven to be purified with these sacrifices, but the heavenly things themselves required better sacrifices than theseFor Christ did not enter a sanctuary made with hands – the representation of the true sanctuary – but into heaven itself, and He appears now in God’s presence for us. And He did not enter to offer Himself again and again, the way the high priest enters the sanctuary year after year with blood that is not his own, for then He would have had to suffer again and again since the foundation of the world. But now He has appeared once for all at the consummation of the ages to put away sin by His sacrifice. And just as people are appointed to die once, and then to face judgment, so also after Christ was offered once to bear the sins of manyto those who eagerly await Him He will appear a second time, not to bear sin but to bring salvation.”)

   Jesus inspired Isaiah to express His love for His people, looking forward to, and write about His concern for His chosen and how the world will one day look to His people. Predestined heirs of Abraham have these promises made through Isaiah.

   (Isaiah 49:14-26; Zion said, ‘The Lord has abandoned me, the Sovereign Master has forgotten me.’ Can a woman forget her baby who nurses at her breast? Can she withhold compassion from the child she has borne? Even if mothers were to forget, I could never forget you! Look, I have inscribed your name on My palms; your walls are constantly before me. Your children hurry back, while those who destroyed and devastated you depart. Look all around you! All of them gather to you. As surely as I live,” says the Lord, “you will certainly wear all of them like jewelry; you will put them on as if you were a bride. Yes, your land lies in ruins; it is desolate and devastated. But now you (Israel) will be too small to hold your residents, and those who devoured you will be far away. Yet the children born during your time of bereavement will say within your hearing, ‘This place is too cramped for us, make room for us so we can live here.’ Then you. “Israel” will think to yourself, ‘Who bore these children for me? I was bereaved and barren, dismissed and divorced. Who raised these children? Look, I was left all alone; where did these children come from?’”

   This is what the Sovereign Lord says: “Look I will raise My hand to the nations; I will raise My signal flag to the peoples. They will bring your sons in their arms and carry your daughters on their shoulders. Kings will be your children’s guardians; their princesses will nurse your children. With their faces to the ground, they will bow down to you, (Israel) and they will lick the dirt on your feet. Then you will recognize that I am the Lord; those who wait patiently for Me are not put to shame. Can spoils be taken from a warrior, or captives be rescued from a conqueror? “Indeed, says the Lord” captives will be taken from a warrior; spoils will be rescued from a conqueror. I will oppose your adversary and I will rescue your children. I, will make your oppressors eat their own flesh; they will get drunk on their own blood, as if it were wine. Then all humankind will recognize that I am the Lord, your Deliverer, your Protector, the powerful ruler of Jacob.”) (Remember God changed Jacob’s name to ‘Israel’ meaning “God fights or fights for.)

   Spiritual Israelites are followers of Jesus, ‘Christians’, believers IN God’s plan for His people. Christians are examples to the world now and will be more so, in His millennial kingdom. Let’s review Jesus’ definition of a Christian through His apostle Paul.

   (Galatians 3:23-29; “Now before (Jesus’) faith came or was revealed) we were held in custody under the law, being kept as prisoners until the coming faith would be revealed. Thus, the law had become our guardian (schoolmaster) until Christ, (Until Jesus is revealed to your minds) so that we could be declared righteous by, (Jesus’) faith.) (Until Jesus was revealed we lived according to our fleshly understanding.) But now that, (Jesus’) faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian. For, ‘in Christ Jesus’ you are all sons of God through faith. (All at one with Him because we believe IN Him) For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female – for all of you are ONE in Christ Jesus. And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to the promise.”)

   As was Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Christians are called and saved by promise, taught by God’s law for our good, which is wholesome righteous and a sketch of the imputation of His spiritual law of love gifted to His chosen. No one is saved by the law, but God’s spirit in us spiritually magnifies His law and confirms the world’s need for the law’s goodness.

May 14th, 2022

To: 35,703 subscribers we pray are being made ‘Temples of God’s Spirit’, 5/14/22, God’s 2nd month, Lyyar 13, 5,782, day seven, the Sabbath until sunset.

   God’s foundation of prophecies, law and planning hang on Godly love. (Jesus was asked, which commandment in the law is the greatest? He said, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. The second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the law and the prophets depend on these two commandments.”) God’s callings and plans are based on Godly love, “not fleshly or instinctive love.” Our all-knowing God has predestined His family, and timed events pertaining to His promised outcomes. Spiritually fathering a child is to make that one His own, totally His choice. He knows His children’s needs, hears genuine request, reveals His coming kingdom, feeds spiritually, forgives as we’re led to forgive others, leads and delivers each from temptation. Study the sample prayer Jesus taught His apostles.

    (Matt 6:6-15; But whenever you pray, go into your room, close the door, and pray to your Father in secret. And your Father who sees in secret, will reward you. When you pray, do not babble repetitiously like the Gentiles, because they think that by their many words they will be heard. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him. So, pray this way: Our Father in heaven, may Your name be honored, may Your kingdom come, may Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we ourselves have forgiven our debtors. Lead us from temptation and deliver us from the evil one. “For if you forgive others their sins, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others, your Father will not forgive your sins.)

   We can’t convince the uncalled to worship as Jesus taught, or love God’s Way and shun the ways of the world. Loving one’s neighbors isn’t a practice to appease them, “but a practice of God’s Way as a witness.) (Believers IN are gifted with desire to practice His Way, even if it brings on persecution. Otherwise, one day we’d likely hear, “you knew Me? why didn’t you obey Me?” God’s Way isn’t a “go along to get along way.)

   Our calling is a personal matter, not to be judged by others. It’s a revealing of God’s love, characteristics, and attributes to our understanding. Apparently, a person can reject, however and if so: “God knew that in advance too.” (Study Jesus’ parable about the sower; individuals are the soil types and He distinguishes those called from those who hear but care more about other things. Speaking to His apostles, Jesus told of their gifted understanding and gave a parable about worldly people.)

   (Matt 13:16-23; But your eyes are blessed because they see, and your ears because they hear. For I tell you the truth, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you (believers) see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it. “So, listen to the parable of the sower: When anyone hears the word about the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches what was sown in his heart; this is the seed sown along the path. The seed sown on rocky ground is the person who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy, but he has no root in himself and does not endure; when trouble or persecution comes because of the word, immediately he falls away. The seed sown among thorns is the person who hears the word, but worldly cares and the seductiveness of wealth choke the word, so it produces nothing. But as for the seed sown on good soil, this is the person who hears the word and understands. He bears fruit, yielding a hundred, sixty, or thirty times what was sown.) (Before this sower parable Jesus gave one about the broad and narrow gates. (Speaking of those NOT understanding and those who are gifted to understand!) Consider another parable and review ‘why parables.’

   Matt 7:13-14; Enter through the narrow gate, because the gate is wide and the way is spacious that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. “But the gate is narrow and the way is difficult that leads to life, and there are few who find it.”) Why? All inherited a hostile outlook toward obedience to God, only His called are gifted with a loving desire to obey.

   Later Jesus answers their question about, “why parables.” He told them, “less they not understand:” then He quotes Isaiah 6:9-10; “Go and tell these people: ‘Listen continually, but don’t understand! Look 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.” (Recall, Joel prophesied of a time when all who call on the name of the Lord will be saved and Jesus inspired Zephaniah to write as followers; (Zeph 3:9-10; Know for sure that I will then enable the nations to give Me acceptable praise. All of them will invoke the Lord’s name when they pray and will worship Him in unison. From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia, those who pray to Me will bring Me tribute.) (As always study the whole and consider; why aren’t these scriptures clear to all? He tells us at Matthew 7.)

    (Matt 7:15-20; Watch out for false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are voracious wolves. You will recognize them by their fruit. Grapes are not gathered from thorns or figs from thistles, are they? In the same way, every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree is not able to bear bad fruit, nor a bad tree to bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. So then, you will recognize them by their fruit.)

   The writer of Hebrews, we believe to be Paul was a Pharisee of Pharisees, he advanced in that religious sect more than others. With authorization from the high priest, Paul was arrested and condoned the killing of Jesus’ follower. (Read Acts 7:) In addition to Jesus’ revelations, Paul understood the workings of the first covenant’s temple services and how it correlated with the second.

   (Heb 9:1-10; Now the first covenant, in fact, had regulations for worship and its earthly sanctuary. For a tent was prepared, the outer one, which contained the lampstand, the table, and the presentation of the loaves; this is called the holy place. And after the second curtain there was a tent called the holy of holies. It contained the golden altar of incense and the ark of the covenant covered entirely with gold. In this ark were the golden urn containing the manna, Aaron’s rod that budded, and the stone tablets of the covenant. And above the ark were the cherubim of glory overshadowing the mercy seat. (Now is not the time to speak of these things in detail. So with these things prepared like this, the priests enter continually into the outer tent as they perform their duties. But only the high priest enters once a year into the inner tent, and not without blood that he offers for himself and for the sins of the people committed in ignorance.) The Holy Spirit is making clear that the way into the holy place had not yet appeared as long as the old tabernacle was standing. This was a symbol for the time then present, when gifts and sacrifices were offered that could not perfect the conscience of the worshiper. They served only for matters of food and drink and various washings; they are external regulations imposed until the new order came.)

    By having the curtain to the holy of holy torn in this way, God was revealing the new covenant way to HimselfWhen Jesus died that symbolic way to the holy of holiest, “the temple curtain” was torn in two, from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks were split apart. And tombs were opened, and the bodies of many Saints who had died were raised. (The Saints came out of the tombs after Jesus’ resurrection and went into the holy city and appeared to many people.) Now when the centurion and those with him who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and what took place, they were extremely terrified and said, “Truly this One was God’s Son!” Matt 27:51-54)

  Jesus is the only Way to the holy of holiest. Physical bodies of Saints were resurrected! (Physical bodies of people “Israelites particularly” are yet to be resurrected and be shown God’s Way; many will turn to His truth and the unrepentant will die a second death. (See Revelations 21:8)

   (Heb 9:11-14; But now Christ has come as the high priest of the good things to come. He passed through the greater and more perfect tent not made with hands, that is, not of this creation, and He entered once for all into the most holy place not by the blood of goats and calves but by His own blood, and so He Himself secured eternal redemption. For if the blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a young cow sprinkled on those who are defiled consecrated them and provided ritual purity, how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without blemish to God, purify our consciences from dead works to worship the living God.)

    Blood sacrifices from Abel’s time, through Samuel’s and the last Jerusalem Temple’s destruction, looked forward to Jesus’ life, “blood” sacrifice. The inner tent divide, looked forward to the Way Jesus provided. Thus, believing IN Jesus is to look to Him and practice obedience, His Way. When we believe IN Jesus as He manifest Himself to be, we know that it was He that made the first covenant with those He delivered through Moses from Egypt.

   That covenant was His will and testament through Moses with Israel: all the while looking forward to a more perfect spiritual one.

   (Heb 9:15-28; And so Jesus is the mediator of a new covenant, so that those who are called may receive the eternal inheritance He has promised, since He died to set them free from the violations committed under the first covenant. For where there is a will, the death of the one who made it must be proven. For a will takes effect only at death, since it carries no force while the One who made it is alive. So even the first covenant was inaugurated with blood. For when Moses had spoken every command to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and goats with water and scarlet wool and hyssop and sprinkled both the book itself and all the people, and said, “This is the blood of the covenant that God has commanded you to keep.” And both the tabernacle and all the utensils of worship he likewise sprinkled with blood. Indeed, according to the law almost everything was purified with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness. So, it was necessary for the sketches of the things in heaven to be purified with these sacrifices, but the heavenly things themselves required better sacrifices than these.

      (Heb 9:24-26; “For Christ did not enter a sanctuary made with hands – the representation of the true sanctuary – but into heaven itself, and He appears now in God’s presence for us. And He did not enter to offer Himself again and again, the way the high priest enters the sanctuary year after year with blood that is not his own, for then He would have had to suffer again and again since the foundation of the world. But now He has appeared once for all at the consummation of the ages to put away sin by His sacrifice. And just as people are appointed to die once, and then to face judgment, so also, after Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many, to those who eagerly await Him He will appear a second time, not to bear sin but to bring salvation.”)

   Jesus’ second coming: His Saints is in His likeness, He’ll bind Satan, bring peace, judgment and demonstrate Godly love.

   (Heb 10:1-4; For the law possesses a shadow of the good things to come but not the reality itself, and is therefore completely unable, by the same sacrifices offered continually, year after year, to perfect those who come to worship. For otherwise would they not have ceased to be offered, since the worshipers would have been purified once for all and so have no further consciousness of sin? But in those sacrifices, there is a reminder of sins year after year. For the blood of bulls and goats cannot take away sins.

   (Heb 10:5-7; So when Jesus came into the world, He said, “Sacrifice and offering You did not desirebut a body You prepared for Me. “Whole burnt offerings and sin-offerings You took no delight in.Then I said, Here I am: I have come – it is written of Me in the scroll of the book – to do your will, O God.’) (Quotes from Psalms 40:6-8)

   Jesus’ life blood sacrifice, for the remission of sin was preplanned from the foundation of the world. (Enoch, “the seventh from Adam wrote about Jesus’ coming with thousands.) Before Satan deceived Eve and Adam, Jesus’ blood sacrifice was pre-planned to make Believers IN Him “At One with Himself and God the Father.” To create in people a spiritual holiness, a righteousness and give the desire to be likeminded with Himself; thus, adding to the family of God through gifted Godly love, as preplanned, even before Satan‘s rebellion. How awesome our God! 

 

God identifies Himself, Holy Ways & Seasons, chapter 19

May 12th, 2022

To: 35,679 subscribers we pray are being made ‘Temples of God’s Spirit’, 5/12/22, God’s 2nd month, Lyyar 11, 5,782, day seven, the Sabbath until sunset.

  When we desire to think like and obey Jesus; “it’s by the grace of God.” It’s by God’s choice and grace when we’re given a desire to follow Jesus. He planned our calling from the foundation of the world. Our calling is special and for His purpose, we’re predestined.  (Philippians 2:12-13; So then, my dear friends, just as you have always obeyed, not only in my presence but even more in my absence, continue working out your salvation with awe and reverence, for the One bringing forth in you both the desire and the effort – for the sake of His good pleasure – is God.) (This is one of many scriptures proving that God the Father does the calling. One of many, teaching that “we individually must work our salvation with awe and reverence and not be persuaded by denominations.)

    From a fleshly outlook, folks look for a denomination or religion that fits their thinking. When God the Father reveals Jesus’ love, attributes and characteristics, people understand they are in fact His own: and realize Jesus is the exact representation of His Father, and they’re One in purpose/planning etc. God the Father does it all through God the Son, making Him, “Creator, Re-Creator, Sustainer, Deliverer, Mediator, Lord and coming king of kings.” When New Jerusalem comes down, we’ll see that unity up close. 

   (Heb 1:1- After God spoke long ago in various portions and in various ways to our ancestors through the prophets, in these last days He has spoken to us in a Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, and through whom He created the world. The Son is the radiance of His glory and the representation of His essence, and He sustains all things by His powerful Word, and so when He ’God the Son’, had accomplished cleansing for sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high. Thus, He became so far better than the angels as He has inherited a name superior to theirs.)

     It’s Jesus’ Good News prophesied in His New and Old Testaments. Not only are God’s chosen in this age predestined, Israel, is predestined to be delivered back to the borders promised through Abraham. As Jesus revealed through Paul to gentiles, “all Israel will be saved,” but at this time, Israel, particularly Judaism’s mind is darkened until the time of gentiles are fulfilled.

    (Romans 11:25- 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.” In regard to the gospel, they are enemies for your sake, but in regard to election they are dearly loved for the sake of the fathers. For the gifts and the call of God are irrevocable.) Paul is quoting from Isaiah 27: & 59: and Jeremiah 31:33-24.

       Let’s examine Jesus’ revelation through Isaiah. (Isaiah   14:1-6; The Lord will certainly have compassion on Jacob; He will again choose Israel as His special people and restore them to their land. Resident foreigners will join them and unite with the family of Jacob. Nations will take them and bring them back to their own place. Then the family of Jacob will make foreigners their servants as they settle in the Lord’s land. They will make their captors captives and rule over the ones who oppressed them. When the Lord gives you relief from your suffering and anxiety, and from the hard labor which you were made to perform, you will taunt the king of Babylon with these words: “Look how the oppressor has met his end! Hostility has ceased. The Lord has broken the club of the wicked, the scepter of rulers. It furiously struck down nations with unceasing blows. It angrily ruled over nations, oppressing them without restraint.) As always study the whole. This chapter also speaks to Satan’s demise.

      (Jesus good news “gospel” is about the whole earth being at rest, quite and breaking into song of praise. The subterranean world called Sheol, “which is regarded as the land of the dead” Including Satan will be amazed.) The offspring of the wicked will never be mentioned again. They must not rise up and take possession of the earth or fill the surface of the world with cities.” Remember Babylon represents all those that make for confusion.)

      (Isa 14:22-29; I will rise up against them, says the Lord who commands armies. “I will blot out all remembrance of Babylon and destroy all her people, including the offspring she produces” says the Lord. I will turn her into a place that is overrun with wild animals and covered with pools of stagnant water. I will get rid of her, just as one sweeps away dirt with a broom,” says the Lord who commands armies. The Lord who commands armies makes this solemn vow: “Be sure of this: Just as I have intended, so it will be; just as I have planned, it will happen. I will break Assyria in My land, I will trample them underfoot on My hills. Their yoke will be removed from My people, the burden will be lifted from their shoulders.

   This is the plan I have devised for the whole earth; My hand is ready to strike all the nations.” Indeed, the Lord who commands armies has a plan, and who can possibly frustrate it? His hand is ready to strike, and who can possibly stop it? The Lord Will Judge the Philistines

    In the year King Ahaz died, this message was revealed: Don’t be so happy, all you Philistines, just because the club that beat you has been broken! For a viper will grow out of the serpent’s root and its fruit will be a darting adder.)

       This latter age and new beginning is defined, as the time from Jesus’ birth until His return. His return and millennial rule will be a new beginning. We followers of Jesus in this age are a chosen predestined people, heirs with Abraham. Israel’s deliverance form Egypt was a new beginning and an example to this age. (The old covenant included circumcision, Israel’s deliverance, washings and blood sacrifices looked forward to the new, when Believers IN would become spiritual Israelites, fulfilling but not doing away with the old.) The new is spiritual circumcision of the heart and people being made at one with God through His spirit, becoming God’s Temple. Again, Jesus reveals it through Paul.

      (1Cor 3:16-23; Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in you? If someone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him. For God’s temple is holy, which is what you are. Guard against self-deception, each of you. If someone among you thinks he is wise in this age, let him become foolish so that he can become wise. For the wisdom of this age is foolishness with God. As it is written, “He catches the wise in their craftiness.” And again, “The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are futile.” So then, no more boasting about mere mortals! For everything belongs to you, whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life or death or the present or the future. Everything belongs to you, and you belong to Christ, and Christ belongs to God.”) And again in chapter 6.

      (1Cor 6:19-20; “Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price. Therefore, glorify God with your body.”) We that are called to Believe IN are purchased with Jesus’ blood.

      (Eph 1:3-14; Blessed is the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms in Christ. For He, “God the Father” chose us in Christ before the foundation of the world that we may be holy and unblemished in His sight in love. He did this by predestining us to adoption as His Sons through Jesus Christ, according to the pleasure of His will – to the praise of the glory of His grace that He has freely bestowed on us in His dearly loved SonIn Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace that He lavished on us in all wisdom and insight. He did this when He revealed to us the secret of His will, according to His good pleasure that He set forth in Christ, toward the administration of the fullness of the times, to head up all things in Christ – the things in heaven and the things on earth. In Christ we too have been claimed as God’s own possession, since we were predestined according to the one purpose of Him who accomplishes all things according to the counsel of His will so that we, who were the first to set our hope on Christ, would be to the praise of His glory. And when you heard the Word of truth (the gospel of your salvation) – when you believed in Christ – you were marked with the seal of the promised Holy Spirit, who is the down payment of our inheritance, until the redemption of God’s own possession, to the praise of His glory.”)

       We didn’t believe IN, Jesus’ Words through Paul, until God the Father called us to be Jesus’ Sheep, “His followers.” Remember God knows our heart, “mind, center of our being” desires and intents of the flesh. Family friends and neighbors may know us; first, by our practices and secondly, by our words. Jesus knows the heart and intent of every person’s mind. Jesus spoke bluntly and had no problem calling the religious types of His day hypocrites, snakes and adding, (John 10:26-30; “You refuse to believe because you are not My sheep. My sheep listen to My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish; no one will snatch them from My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all, and no one can snatch them from My Father’s hand. The Father and I are One.”)

       Satan has all worldly denominations believing they were born immortal, that is “born to live forever someplace.” These don’t believe IN Jesus. In the above John 10: scripture Jesus is saying. (1) Friends of this world’s system of things aren’t My sheep. (2) I knows each that the Father gives Me, they listen to and follow Me. (3) I give them eternal life, “no one earns it.” (4) Those the Father gives Me, will never perish. (5) The Father and I are One and He is greater than I.

       Jesus’ brother, “James” concurs; (James 4:4-9; Adulterers, do you not know that friendship with the world means hostility toward God? So whoever decides to be the world’s friend makes himself God’s enemy. Or do you think the scripture means nothing when it says, “The spirit that God caused to live within us has an envious yearning”? But He gives greater grace. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proudbut He gives grace to the humble.” So, submit to God. But resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and make your hearts pure, you double-minded. Grieve, mourn, and weep. Turn your laughter into mourning and your joy into despair. Humble yourselves before the Lord and He will exalt you.)

       The religions of our day are likened to the Pharisees and Sadducees, in that they take bits and pieces from scripture, “favorites” then ask questions in trickery form to test responses. We shouldn’t debate with, self righteous deceived and unbelievers. We probably should say no more than Jesus’ response.

      (Matthew 22:34-40; “Now when the Pharisees heard that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees they assembled together, And one of them, an expert in religious law, asked him a question to test Him: “Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?” Jesus said to him, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. The second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the law and the prophets depend on these two commandments.”)

To: 35,663 subscribers we pray are being made ‘Temples of God’s Spirit’, 5/10/22, God’s 2nd month, Lyyar 9, 5,782, day seven, the Sabbath until sunset.

   Unbelievers don’t seem to know “the God of the old and new testaments are one and the same.” The Lord God of Enoch, Noah, Abraham, the twelve apostles and each Believer IN is Creator Jesus. Three inspired scriptural truths are. (John 1:1-5, Colossians 1:15-29 & Heb 1:) The Son of God is, “the I AM that I AM” (Study Exodus 2 and 3.) He preplanned a Re-Creation of planet earth after flooding and destroying what we’d called pre-historic life. Prepared it for new life, particularly mankind’s, made in Their image and likeness. He may have repositioned the stars, sun and moon to compliment His new creations, separating years, seasons, day and night for Their needs. According to biblical chronology He created humankind less than 6,000 years ago.

   (Gen 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.) (Since there’s no beginning and ending with God, this first verse should read, “in a beginning, not “the.” Scripture does identify several new beginnings.

    (Gen 1:2;2) Now the earth was without shape and empty, darkness was over the surface of the watery deep, but the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the water.) Planet earth existence was in disarray, because of a previous flooding. Next God is speaking of a re-creation

   (Gen 1:3-5; 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.) For earth to complete one turn on its axis makes one full day. Study the whole, take into account, “kind after kind.” (Gen 1:6-8; God said, “Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters and let it separate water from water. “Clouds from sea and oceans.” So, God made the expanse and separated the water under the expanse from the water above it. It was so. God called the expanse “sky.” There was evening, and there was morning, a second day.” (Gen 1:9-10; God said, “Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place and let dry ground appear.” It was so. God called the dry ground “land” and the gathered waters “seas.” God saw that it was good. (Gen 1:11-13; God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: plants yielding seeds according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds.” It was so. The land produced vegetation – plants yielding seeds according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. God saw that it was good. There was evening, and there was morning, a third day.

   (Gen 1:14-19; God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them be signs to indicate seasons and days and years and let them serve as lights in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth.” It was so. God made two great lights – the greater light to rule over the day and the lesser light to rule over the night. He made the stars also. God placed the lights in the expanse of the sky to shine on the earth, to preside over the day and the night and to separate the light from the darkness. God saw that it was good. There was evening and there was morning, a fourth day. (Gen 1:20-23; God said, “Let the water swarm with swarms of living creatures and let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the sky.” God created the great sea creatures and every living and moving thing with which the water swarmed, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. God saw that it was good. God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds multiply on the earth.” There was evening, and there was morning, a fifth day. (Gen 1:24-25; God said, “Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: cattle, creeping things, and wild animals, each according to its kind.” It was so. God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the cattle according to their kinds, and all the creatures that creep along the ground according to their kinds. God saw that it was good.

   (Gen 1:26; Then God said, “Let us make humankind in our image, after our likeness, so they may rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move on the earth.” (Gen 1:27; God created humankind in His own image, in the image of God He created them, male and female He created them.)

   God’s purpose and plans are giving and loving. God is love. God the Father and God the Son planned The Way in which humankind could inherit eternal life. The Noah day flood was a new beginning. Calling and making His awesome promises to Abraham was a new beginning. The Son of God’s sacrifice for the remission of sin was and is the ultimate New Beginning.

   (Heb 6:13-15; “Now when God made His promise to Abraham, since He could swear by no one greater, He swore by Himself, saying, “Surely I will bless you greatly and multiply your descendants abundantly.” And so by persevering, Abraham inherited the promise. (Jesus too persevered in that He learned from the things He suffered.)

   (Heb 6:16-29; For people swear by something greater than themselves, and the oath serves as a confirmation to end all dispute. In the same way God wanted to demonstrate more clearly to the heirs of the promise that His purpose was unchangeable, and so He intervened with an oath, so that we who have found refuge in Him may find strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us through two unchangeable things, (1) since it is impossible for God to lie. We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, sure and steadfast, which reaches inside behind the curtain, (2) where Jesus our forerunner entered on our behalf, since He became a priest forever in the order of Melchizedek.”)

   Our trust must be in Jesus, our desire must be to serve as He served and yield to Him as He yielded to God the Father. Though all power is given to Jesus, He never thought to usurp power or insert a will differing from His Father’s. (Study Philippians 2:) (As such no person should think to alter God’s holy ways, worship etc.)

   Now Satan and his followers are opposites. The holy scriptures teach; Satan thought highly of himself and God inspired Isaiah to share Satan’s outlook, giving us to understand the power God is allowing him to have.

   (Isa 14:12-16; “Look how you have fallen from the sky, O shining one, son of the dawn! You have been cut down to the ground, O conqueror of the nations! You said to yourself, “I will climb up to the sky. Above the stars of El (El: authority of our Creator) I will set up my throne. I will rule on the mountain of assembly on the remote slopes of Zaphon. I will climb up to the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High!” But you (Satan) were brought down to Sheol, to the remote slopes of the pit. Those who see you stare at you, they look at you carefully, thinking: “Is this the man who shook the earth, the one who made kingdoms tremble?”)

   Likewise, Satan’s followers think to alter and usurp God’s authority, change times and devise idolatrous customs that cause people to error. Let us pray to have a mind like Jesus.’ Jesus inspired Paul to instruct us to be lovingly different.

  (Philippians 2:4-11; “Each of you should be concerned not only about your own interests, but about the interests of others as well. You should have the same attitude toward one another that Christ Jesus had, who though He existed in the form of God did not regard equality with God as something to be grasped, (as Satan and his followers do) but emptied Himself by taking on the form of a slave, by looking like other men, and by ’lovingly’ sharing in human nature. He humbled Himself, by becoming obedient to the point of death – even death on a cross! As a result, God exalted Him and gave Him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow – in heaven and on earth and under the earth – and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father.”)

   To believe IN Jesus, as the Creator Son of God, is to believe IN God the Father. Spiritually adulterous people committing to the apostate Jude wrote about, “went about changing God’s calendar, appropriated a paganism mix with Judaism and called it Christian.” They still persecute genuine followers of Jesus, who worship Him as the Son of God. Judaism and Christendom folk can’t understand, “God’s name is the family name.”

    (1John 3:1-3; (See what sort of love the Father has given to us: that we should be called God’s children – and indeed we are! For this reason the world does not know us: because it did not know Him. Dear friends, we are God’s children now, and what we will be, has not yet been revealed. We know that whenever it is revealed we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is. And everyone who has this hope focused on Him purifies himself, just as Jesus is pure.)

   Followers of Jesus are “now in God’s family” and it’s He that gives us the desire to be like Him.

   (Philippians 2:12-16; “So then, my dear friends, just as you have always obeyed, not only in my presence but even more in my absence, continue working out your salvation with awe and reverence, for the One bringing forth in you both the desire and the effort – for the sake of His good pleasure – is God. Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may be blameless and pure, children of God without blemish though you live in a crooked and perverse society, in which you shine as lights in the world by holding on to the Word of Life so that on the day of Christ I will have a reason to boast that I did not run in vain nor labor in vain.”) (Believers IN aren’t considered slaves but friends – owned by God.)

  (Gal 4:1-7; Now I mean that the heir, as long as he is a minor, is no different from a slave, though he is the owner of everything. But he is under guardians and managers until the date set by his father. So, also we, when we were minors, were enslaved under the basic forces of the world. But when the appropriate time had come, God sent out His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we may be adopted as Sons with full rights. And because you are Sons, God sent the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, who calls “Abba! Father!” So you are no longer a slave but a Son, and if you are a Son, then you are also an heir through God.” 

    Remember Abraham serves as a new beginning, his grandson Jacob’s name was changed to Israel and Christians are spiritual Israelites. (Gal 3:29 And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to the promise.) (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.”) When we whole heartedly believe this, it’s knowing faith.

To: 35,612 subscribers we pray are being made ‘Temples of God’s Spirit’, 5/7/22, God’s 2nd month, Lyyar 6, 5,782, day seven, ‘the Sabbath’ until sunset.

    Since God’s seventh day holy Sabbath is set aside for rest, from doing works of the flesh & since a thousand years is as one day with God, logically Jesus’ return is planned for after six thousand years of fleshly works & Satan’s influence on people. Considering Jesus’ promises to cut time short for the Elect’s sake, we need to be ready. We don’t know, but have evidence “six thousand years is allocated for people to live according to what seems right to their fleshly minds.” Followers of Jesus pray God’s Way, soon be done on earth. God’s set aside seven annual Sabbaths is a strong indication of the same. 

    Schools of so called higher learning with differing doctrinal positions offer doctrinal degrees in religious theology. Which is nonsense to God and His called people, ‘since Jesus is the head of His church, He’s the Teacher. (Eph 2:20-22; So, then you (gentiles) are no longer foreigners and non-citizens, but you are fellow citizens with the Saints and members of God’s household, because you 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 also are being built together into a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.) People gifted to believe IN Jesus are His church family, & temples of His spirit.) Jesus fulfilled His being prophesied as the Christ & coming King.

   (Hebrews 4:14-16;Therefore since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast to our confession (profession.) For we do not have a high priest incapable of sympathizing with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in every way just as we are, yet without sin. Therefore, let us confidently approach the throne of grace to receive mercy and find grace whenever we need help.)

    When we’re gifted to recognize our inherited from Adam weaknesses, we need to confess them to God and ask for spiritual strength to overcome them. A near perfect example is the apostle Paul’s, ‘who recognized his nature after Jesus revealed Himself.’ Paul called himself a Pharisee of Pharisees, was educated in the workings of the temple services and Aaron’s responsibilities as high priest. Paul had a fleshly religious understanding before being called and gifted with spiritual revelations. After conversion, he understood that God made Moses “as a god to the Israelites and Aaron Israel’s high priest.”

   (Hebrews 5:1-10; For every high priest is taken from among the people and appointed to represent them before God, to offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins. Aaron dwelt compassionately with those who were ignorant and erring, since he also is subject to weakness and for this reason he is obligated to make sin offerings for himself as well as for the people. And no one assumes this honor on his own initiative, but only when called to it by God, as in fact Aaron was. So, also Christ did not glorify Himself in becoming high priest, but the One who glorified Him was God, who said to Him, “You are My Son! Today I have fathered You, as also in another place God says, “You are a priest forever in the order of Melchizedek.” (Quote from Psalms 110:4) During His earthly life Christ offered both requests and supplications, with loud cries and tears, to the One who was able to save Him from death and He was heard because of His devotion. Although He was a Son, He learned obedience through the things He suffered. And by being perfected in this way, He became the source of eternal salvation to all who obey Him, and He was designated by God as high priest in the order of Melchizedek.) (Remember the Potters’ wheel analogy? Since Jesus “learned obedience through things suffered, & was perfected in this way, we followers of Jesus need to recognize our sufferings as disciplinary training.’

    No other could individually serve as high priest in the order of Melchizedek. King David was given to understand.

   (Psalms 110:1-7; Here is the Lord’s (God the Father’s) proclamation to my Lord: (the Son of God - Jesus) “Sit down at My right hand until I make Your enemies your footstool!” The Lord (God the Father) extends Your dominion from Zion. Rule in the midst of Your enemies! Your people willingly follow You when You go into battle. On the holy hills at sunrise the dew of Your youth belongs to You. The Lord makes this promise on oath and will not revoke it: “You are an eternal priest after the pattern of Melchizedek.” O sovereign Lord, at Your right hand He strikes down kings in the day He unleashes His anger. He executes judgment against the nations; He fills the valleys with corpses; He shatters their heads over the vast battlefield. From the stream along the road He drinks; then He lifts up His head.)

    Jesus’ characteristics is as Melchizedek were, revealed at Hebrews 7, and Satan is the god of this world; as such he leads the nations to resist Jesus’ rule and likely, will use gentiles to overrun Jerusalem. Remember Jesus’ prophecy? (Matt 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. 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.)

   Let us pray that some of these prophecies fit Paul’s words at (1Cor 13:8-10; ‘Love never ends. But if there are prophecies, they will be set aside; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be set aside. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part but when what is perfect comes, the partial will be set aside.’) As always study the whole.

   For the Elect’s sake? Jesus may come before some prophecies are fulfilled. If not, hateful people are going to overrun Jerusalem. (Zachariah 14:1-15; A day of the Lord is about to come when your possessions will be divided as plunder in your midst. For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to wage war; the city will be taken, its houses plundered, and the women raped. Then half of the city will go into exile, but the remainder of the people will not be taken away. Then the Lord will go to battle and fight against those nations, just as He fought battles in ancient days. On that day Jesus’ feet will stand on the Mount of Olives which lies to the east of Jerusalem and the Mount of Olives will be split in half from east to west, leaving a great valley. Half the mountain will move northward and the other half southward. Then you will escape through My mountain valley, for the mountains will extend to Azal. Indeed, you will flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of King Uzziah of Judah. Then the Lord my God will come with all His holy ones with Him. On that day there will be no light – the sources of light in the heavens will congeal. It will happen in one day (a day known to the Lord); not in the day or the night, but in the evening there will be light. Moreover, on that day living waters will flow out from Jerusalem, half of them to the eastern sea and half of them to the western sea; it will happen both in summer and in winter. The Lord will then be king over all the earth. In that day the Lord will be seen as One with a single name. All the land will change and become like the Arabah (likely as the name of the rift valley running from the Sea of Galilee via the Jordan Valley and the Dead Sea to the Gulf of Aqaba) from Geba to Rimmon, south of Jerusalem; and Jerusalem will be raised up and will stay in its own place from the Benjamin Gate to the site of the First Gate and on to the Corner Gate, and from the Tower of Hananel to the royal winepresses. And people will settle there, and there will no longer be the threat of divine extermination – Jerusalem will dwell in security. But this will be the nature of the plague with which the Lord will strike all the nations that have fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh will decay while they stand on their feet, their eyes will rot away in their sockets, and their tongues will dissolve in their mouths. On that day there will be great confusion from the Lord among them; they will seize each other and attack one another violently. Moreover, Judah will fight at Jerusalem, and the wealth of all the surrounding nations will be gathered up – gold, silver, and clothing in great abundance. This is the kind of plague that will devastate horses, mules, camels, donkeys, and all the other animals in those camps.”

   (Zach 14:16-21; Then all who survive from all the nations that came to attack Jerusalem will go up annually to worship the King, the Lord who rules over all, and to observe the Feast of Tabernacles. But if any of the nations anywhere on earth refuse to go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord who rules over all, they will get no rain. If the Egyptians will not do so, they will get no rain – instead there will be the kind of plague which the Lord inflicts on any nations that do not go up to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles. This will be the punishment of Egypt and of all nations that do not go up to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles. On that day the bells of the horses will bear the inscription “Holy to the Lord.” The cooking pots in the Lord’s temple will be as holy as the bowls in front of the altar. Every cooking pot in Jerusalem and Judah will become holy in the sight of the Lord who rules over all, so that all who offer sacrifices may come and use some of them to boil their sacrifices in them. On that day there will no longer be a Canaanite in the house of the Lord who rules over all.) (As always study the whole text prayerfully. Remember Jesus is the Revelator and we live in expectation of His rule.)

  (Rev 6:13-16; Then I saw three unclean spirits that looked like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of the demons performing signs who go out to the kings of the earth to bring them together for the battle that will take place on the great day of God, the All-Powerful. (Look! I will come like a thief! Blessed is the one who stays alert and does not lose his clothes so that he will not have to walk around naked, and his shameful condition be seen.) Now the spirits gathered the kings and their armies to the place that is called Armageddon in Hebrew.)

    So, how should we be clothed? With and in Jesus! (See Matthew 6:30 & Luke 12:28)

   Jesus’ blood brother ‘James’ addressed the subject, ‘why war?’ concluding that it’s about philosophy for the most part. So, it is with the Ukraine war. The West’s news media does not have the courage to report all the facts. Moscow’s Orthodox Catholics do not condone western morals, as currently set by Rome & most Western Protestantism. ‘Ukraine’s leaning west, bribes and their acceptance of western values that Moscow does not want encroaching Russian society, also plays into Putin’s territory increase desires.   

  Among the attributes of God’s spirit is the spirit of a sound mind and knowing His characteristics. These found in Heb 1: John 1:1-5 and Colossians 1:15-20 particularly; ‘Genesis through Revelations scripture gives the Knowledge that God knows each of us better than we can know ourselves. David wrote.

   (Psalms 94:9-13; Does the One who makes the human ear not hear?) Does the One who forms the human eye not see? Does the one who disciplines the nations not punish? ‘He is the One who imparts knowledge to human beings!’ The Lord knows that peoples’ thoughts are morally bankrupt. How blessed is the one whom You instruct, O Lord, the one whom You teach from your law, in order to protect him from times of trouble, until the wicked are destroyed.) Do study the whole text.

   (Heb 4:12-13; For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any double-edged sword, piercing even to the point of dividing soul from spirit, and joints from marrow; it is able to judge the desires and thoughts of the heart. And no creature is hidden from God, but everything is naked and exposed to the eyes of Him to whom we must render an account.)

    The Holy Bible is a spiritual book and understood only to those to whom it is gifted. God revealed His characteristic to Paul and all followers of Jesus. (1Cor 1:18-27; For the message about the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us (Christians) who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and I will thwart the cleverness of the intelligent.” (No matter one’s intellect, God can withhold spiritual understanding.) Where is the wise man? Where is the expert in the Mosaic law? Where is the debater of this age? Has God not made the wisdom of the world foolish? For since in the wisdom of God the world by its wisdom did not know God, God was pleased to save those who believe by the foolishness of preaching. For Jews demand miraculous signs and Greeks ask for wisdom, but we (apostles) preach about a crucified Christ, a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles. But to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength. Think about the circumstances of your call, brothers and sisters. Not many were wise by human standards, not many were powerful, not many were born to a privileged position. But God chose what the world thinks foolish to shame the wise, and God chose what the world thinks weak to shame the strong.) (In other words, there’s no room for boasting.)

   When denominations decide for themselves, what’s good, evil, right and wrong, they unwittingly fall into the same trap Satan laid for Eve and Adam. (It is worth reviewing again. See Genesis 3:2-7. Adam and Eve’s disobedience caused their innocents of believing in God ‘outlook to be altered.’ When people today live according to what seems right to themselves and when ‘God doesn’t punish, they assume it’s okay.’ Like before Adam and Eve was tempted by the devil; they looked to their Creator as Master and Teacher. But, their nor is our creation complete until gifted with God’s spirit, ‘gifted with a believing IN spirit.’ So, let’s repeat and review, (John 7:37-39; On the last day of the feast, 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 said this about the Spirit, whom those who believed IN Him were going to receive, for the Spirit had not yet been given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.)

   After eating from the forbidden tree, Adam and Eve’s minds were opened to selfish vanity, “the devil put in thoughts regarding what seemed good to their fleshly minds” becoming aware of their nakedness. (Their yielding to what seemed right, brought about God’s promise of eternal death.) But God had a plan for a chosen people, He’d not be outdone by the deceiver, “Satan.” A planned way of saving through (The Life giver ‘Jesus’, the sacrifice of His only begotten Son would be gifted for the remission of sin.

   (John 3:16-21; is worth re-visiting.) True science agrees, ‘planet earth bears witness of more than one flood.’ Long before Jesus’ Re-created, Satan had been removed from the heavenly sphere. We don’t know the timing of the flood before, Jesus‘ re-creation. Only that earth bears witness of pre-historic living creatures, ‘some resembling humans.’ The holy scriptures chronologies life on earth starting with Adam, about 5,682 years ago. (Less than six thousand years, according to the Judean calendar which God assigned for their keeping. They’re entrusted with the oracles of God: Jesus inspired His apostle Paul to write; (Rom 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.)

   We aren‘t prophets, nor do we set dates, we do speculate based on principles God has revealed. Chronologically the Judean calendar has the advantage and God shares through Peter that a thousand years is as one day with Him; He rested from His work of creation making the seventh day holy, for His people. (2Peter 3:8-9; “Now, dear friends, do not let this one thing escape your notice, that a single day is like a thousand years with the Lord and a thousand years are like a single day. The Lord is not slow concerning His promise, as some regard slowness, but is being patient toward you, because He does not wish for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.) (Seemingly all will be given, that opportunity during Jesus’ millennial reign. Study 1Corinthians 15: and review 2Peter 3:10-13.)

   Jesus’ next coming will be to bring a time of peace. The holy scriptures teach, the tempter (Satan) will be bound and a thousand years is allocated to knowledge of God covering as water the sea. Satan will then be loose for a season to serve God’s purpose.

   (Rev 20:7-10; Now when the thousand years are finished, Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to deceive the nations at the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to bring them together for the battle. They are as numerous as the grains of sand in the sea. They went up on the broad plain of the earth and encircled the camp of the Saints and the beloved city, but fire came down from heaven and devoured them completely. And the devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet are too, and they will be tormented there day and night forever and ever.)

       Satan knows his fate and followers of Jesus look forward to his being imprisoned.

May 5th, 2022

To: 35,588 subscribers we pray are being made “temples of God’s Spirit.” 5/5/22, God’s 2nd Mo. Lyyar 4, 5,782 until sunset.

  In keeping with God’s Sabbath rest principle, we believe God allotted six thousand years for His created people ‘go the way that seemed right to their fleshly minds’ and He’s  allowing Satan to be the god of fleshly minded people, ‘while calling out a sanctified chosen predestined people for His Name sake.’     (Revelations 12:12, Therefore you heavens rejoice, and all who reside in them! But woe to the earth and the sea because the devil has come down to you! He is filled with terrible anger, for he knows that he only has a little time.) As always study the whole text.

    Sending the Creator, Sustainer Son of God with the gospel “good news” was in God the Father and God the Son’s plan before Adam’s creation. After His chosen disregarded His covenant with them He scattered them among gentile nations and had Isaiah review His promises to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. That promise is to deliver and save Israel, ‘Jessie was David’s dad.’

    (Isaiah 11:1-8; A shoot will grow out of Jesse’s root stock a bud will sprout from his roots. The Lord’s spirit will rest on Him – a spirit that gives extraordinary wisdom, a spirit that provides the ability to execute plans, a spirit that produces absolute loyalty to the Lord. He will take delight in obeying the Lord. He will not judge, by mere appearances or make decisions based of hearsay.

    (The Son of God (Jesus) came in the flesh to be the Lamb of God, sacrifice Himself for remission of sins and award eternal life.)

    Isa 11:4-9; He will treat the poor fairly and make right decisions for the downtrodden of the earth. He will strike the earth with the rod of his mouth, and order the wicked to be executed. (At this point review Rev 21:8.) Justice will be like a belt around His waist, integrity will be like a belt around His hips. A wolf will reside with a lamb, and a leopard will lie down with a young goat; an ox and a young lion will graze together, as a small child leads them along. A cow and a bear will graze together, their young will lie down together. A lion, like an ox, will eat straw. A baby will play over the hole of a snake; over the nest of a serpent an infant will put his hand.) (The good news is about the spirit of God living in people, in this age and more so in the age to come, (Remember Joel’s prophecy; ‘people and animal’s nature will be changed.’) They will no longer injure or destroy on My entire royal mountain. For there will be universal submission to the Lord’s sovereignty just as the waters completely cover the sea.) (Satan bound, no more deceptions.)

Israel will be Reclaimed and Reunited,

   Isa 11:10-16; At that time a root from Jesse “Jesus” will stand like a signal flag for the nations. Nations will look to Him for guidance and His residence will be majestic. At that time the Sovereign Master will again lift His hand to reclaim the remnant of His people from Assyria, Egypt, Pathros, Cush, Elam, Shinar, Hamath, and the seacoasts. (Today these nations are called USA, Germany, Russia, China etc. The whole world is pagan.)  

    He (Jesus) will lift a signal flag for the nations; He will gather Israel’s dispersed people and assemble Judah’s scattered people from the four corners of the earth. Ephraim’s (Joseph’s descendants) jealousy will end, and Judah’s (Jacob’s son and Joseph’ brother) hostility will be eliminated. Ephraim will no longer be jealous of Judah, and Judah will no longer be hostile toward Ephraim.

    They (the Israelites) will swoop down on the Philistine hills to the west; together they will loot the people of the east. They will take over Edom and Moab, and the Ammonites will be their subjects. The Lord will divide the gulf of the Egyptian Sea; He will wave His hand over the Euphrates River and send a strong wind, He will turn it into seven dried-up streams, and enable them to walk across in their sandals. There will be a highway leading out of Assyria for the remnant of His people, just as there was for Israel, when they went up from the land of Egypt.) 

   (Isa 12:1-6; At that time you (Israel) will say: “I praise you, O Lord, for even though You were angry with me, Your anger subsided, and You consoled me. Look, God is my deliverer! I will trust in Him and not fear. For the Lord gives me strength and protects me; He has become my Deliverer.” Joyfully you will draw water from the springs of deliverance. At that time, you will say: “Praise the Lord! Ask Him for help! Publicize His mighty acts among the nations! Make it known that He is unique! Sing to the Lord, for He has done magnificent things, let this be known throughout the earth! Cry out and shout for joy, O citizens of Zion, for the Holy One of Israel acts mightily among you!)

   Sabbaths were made for people’s good, not people for the Sabbath, for this reason the Son of Man is lord even of the Sabbath.) See Matt 12:8.

   It’s revealed to followers of Jesus, that from within our fleshly inherited nature, (spiritual comprehension isn’t the way that seems right.) (See Prov 14:12 & 16:25; There is a way that seems right to a person, but its end is the way that leads to death.)

   Eating the forbidden fruit from the tree in the middle of the garden seemed right to Eve and Adam’s fleshly (get) nature. Jesus revealed to Paul and he to believers.

   (1Cor 12:1-3; With regard, to spiritual gifts brothers and sisters, I do not want you to be uninformed. You know that when you were pagans you were often led astray by speechless idols, however you were led. So, I want you to understand that no one speaking by the Spirit of God says, “Jesus is cursed,” and no one can say, “Jesus is Lord,” except by the Holy Spirit.) Meaning? “No one can know Jesus as Lord, except by revelation.”

   (Unbelieving people verbalize that Jesus is Lord, but they’re manufactured Jesus, only fits their religious philosophy. Jesus kept and spoke on the seventh of seven annual Sabbaths, (The Last Great Day - the eighth day of the Feast of Tabernacles when John recorded, that the spirit had not yet been given because Jesus was not yet glorified.)

   (John 7:37-29; On the last day of the feast, 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 Jesus said this about the Spirit, whom those who believed IN Him were going to receive, for the Spirit had not yet been given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.”)

   (Fleshly minded Nicodemus didn’t understand Jesus’ Words regarding. being born again and didn’t understand how the miracle of being gifted with God’s spirit could happen, so Jesus explained both.)

   (John 3:5-8; Jesus answered, “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.’ 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.”) (Spiritual comprehension is gifted, discernment is gifted; when we’re aware that our understanding isn’t from our fleshly nature or schooling, we know it’s revelation.)

   The apostles’ letters are to ‘a born again, spirit begotten people.’ (1Thess 5:4-11; But you, brothers and sisters, (followers of Jesus) are not in the darkness for the day to overtake you like a thief would. For you all are sons of the light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of the darkness. So, then we must not sleep as the rest, but must stay alert and sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night and those who get drunk are drunk at night. But since we, (followers of Jesus) are of the day, we must stay sober by putting on the breastplate of faith and love and as a helmet our hope for salvation. For God did not destine us, (we called) for wrath but for gaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. He died for us so that whether we are alert or asleep we will come to life together with Him. Therefore encourage one another and build up each other, just as you are in fact doing.)

    (Let’s review from a previous study. Peter’s prophetic words about the heavens and celestial bodies are misunderstood my many in relationship to God’s making all things new. Many think the heavens will be instantaneously altered, others believe that Jesus’ return spells the end of planet earth. Taking all prophecy in consideration, we understand that the melting away of celestial bodies will be after Jesus’ millennial rule and after New Jerusalem comes down. Peter’s words in chapter one must be considered along with all other inspired text.)

    (When talking with His apostles Jesus explained, (For the Son of Man will come with His angels in the glory of His Father, and then He will reward each person according to what he has done. I tell you the truth there are some standing here who will not experience death before they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom.) Matt 16:27. (Matt 17:1-8; Six days later Jesus took with Him Peter, James, and John the brother of James, and led them privately up a high mountain. And Jesus was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became white as light. Then Moses and Elijah also appeared before them, talking with Jesus. So, Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good for us to be here. If you want, I will make three shelters – one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.” While Peter was still speaking, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is My One dear Son, in whom I take great delight. Listen to Him!” When the disciples heard this, they were overwhelmed with fear and threw themselves down with their faces to the ground. But Jesus came and touched them. “Get up He said. Do not be afraid.” When they looked up, all they saw was Jesus alone.”)

    Three apostles witnessed the kingdom of God. Moses, Elijah, and many others will be with Jesus during His millennial rule. In Peter’s second letter he speaks of this event.

   (2Peter1:16-21; For we “apostles did not follow cleverly concocted fables when we made known to you the power and return of our Lord Jesus Christ; no, we were eyewitnesses of His grandeur. For Jesus received honor and glory from God the Father, when that voice was conveyed to Him by the Majestic Glory: “This is My dear Son, in whom I am delighted.” When this voice was conveyed from heaven, we ourselves heard it, for we were with Jesus on the holy mountain. Moreover, we possess the prophetic word as an altogether reliable thing. You do well if you pay attention to this as you would to a light shining in a murky place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. (Until Jesus is revealed to your minds.) Above all, you do well if you recognize this: No prophecy of scripture ever comes about by the prophet’s own imagination, for no prophecy was ever borne of human impulse; rather, men carried along by the Holy Spirit spoke from God.)

God identifies Himself, Holy Ways & Seasons, chapter 14

May 1st, 2022

To: 35,541 subscribers we pray are being made “temples of God’s Spirit.” 5/2/22, God’s 2nd Mo. Lyyar 1, 5,782 until sunset.

  That Pentecost after Jesus’ ascension was a partial fulfillment of Jesus’ prophecy through Joel. (Study that book.) After Jesus’ return Satan bound and knowledge of His love way covers like water the sea, “all who call on His name will be saved.” Each Pentecost annual Sabbath looks forward to that day.

Pentecost represents spiritual re-birth “a day of entering His Rest” and was scheduled by God the Father. (Study Isaiah 49: about Israel’s deliverance.) Jesus’ apostle Paul confirms that this latter age is “the acceptable time.”

   (2Cor 6:1-10; Now because we (apostles) are fellow workers, we also urge you not to receive the grace of God in vain. For He says, “I heard you at the acceptable time, and in the day of salvation I helped you.” Look, now is the acceptable time; look, now is the day of salvation! We (apostles) do not give anyone an occasion for taking an offense in anything, so that no fault may be found with our ministry. But as God’s servants, we have commended ourselves in every way, with great endurance, in persecutions, in difficulties, in distresses, in beatings, in imprisonments, in riots, in troubles, in sleepless nights, in hunger, by purity, by knowledge, by patience, by benevolence, by the Holy Spirit, by genuine love, by truthful teaching, by the power of God, with weapons of righteousness both for the right hand and for the left, through glory and dishonor, through slander and praise; regarded as impostors, and yet true; as unknown, and yet well-known; as dying and yet – see! – we continue to live; as those who are scourged and yet not executed; as sorrowful, but always rejoicing, as poor, but making many rich, as having nothing, and yet possessing everything.) Remember Jesus told them of their suffering and what that result would be.)

   Sabbaths foreshadow God’s rest. (See Heb 4:8-13; For if Joshua had given them (Israel) Rest, God would not have spoken afterward about another day. Consequently: a Sabbath Rest remains for the people of God. For the one who enters God’s Rest has also rested from his works, just as God did from His own works. Thus, we must make every effort to enter that Rest, so that no one may fall by following the same pattern of disobedience.

   For the Word of God is living and active and sharper than any double-edged sword, piercing even to the point of dividing soul from spirit, and joints from marrow, it (the Word of God) is able to judge the desires and thoughts of the heart. And no creature is hidden from God, but everything is naked and exposed to the eyes of Him to whom we must render an account.)

    (Believers are called to be at Rest from our own fleshly works. God’s resting and making the seventh day holy to Himself and His people is for each Sabbath and His Millennia time of rest. Millennium means; one thousand, and a thousand years is as a day with God. Jesus reveals a time after His Millennial rule and afterward when New Jerusalem comes down, “when all things are made new.”

   (2Peter 3:8-13; Now, dear friends, do not let this one thing escape your notice, that a single day is like a thousand years with the Lord and a thousand years are like a single day. The Lord is not slow concerning His promise, as some regard slowness, but is being patient toward you, because He does not wish for any to perish but for all to come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come like a thief; when it comes, the heavens will disappear with a horrific noise, and the celestial bodies will melt away in a blaze, and the earth and every deed done on it will be laid bare. Since all these things are to melt away in this manner, what sort of people must we be, conducting our lives in holiness and godliness, while waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of God? Because of this day, the heavens will be burned up and dissolve, and the celestial bodies will melt away in a blaze! But, according to His promise, we are waiting for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness truly resides.)

    People misunderstand about heavens and celestial bodies in relationship to God’s making all things new. Many think, ‘at Jesus’ next return the heavens will be instantaneously altered’, ‘others think Jesus’ return spells the end of planet earth.’ Taking all prophecy in consideration, we understand that the melting away of celestial bodies will be after Jesus’ millennial rule and likely way after New Jerusalem comes down. Peter’s words in chapter one must be considered along with all other inspired prophecy text.

   Talking with His apostles Jesus explained, (For the Son of Man will come with His angels in the glory of His Father, and then He will reward each person according to what he has done. I tell you the truth, there are some standing here who will not experience death before they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom.) See Matt 16:27 & 17:1-8) Six days later Jesus took with Him Peter, James, and John the brother of James, and led them privately up a high mountain. And Jesus was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became white as light. Then Moses and Elijah also appeared before them, talking with Jesus. So Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good for us to be here. “If you want, I will make three shelters – one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.” While Peter was still speaking, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is My One dear Son, in whom I take great delight. Listen to Him!” When the disciples heard this, they were overwhelmed with fear and threw themselves down with their faces to the ground. But Jesus came and touched them. “Get up,” He said. “Do not be afraid.” When they looked up, all they saw was Jesus alone.”

   These three witnessed the kingdom of God. Moses, Elijah and many others will be with Jesus during His millennial rule. In Peter’s second letter he speaks of this miraculous event with Jesus. (See 2Peter 1:16-21) It’s amazing to followers of Jesus, that so many can read these marvelous spirit inspired words and still make God out to be one of private imaginations.

   The holy bible is a spiritual book and understood by people to whom it is gifted. God revealed these gifted characteristic of His followers.

  (1Cor 1:18-27; For the message about the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written, “I will destroy the wisdom of the wiseand I will thwart the cleverness of the intelligent. (No matter one’s intellect, God can withhold or give spiritual understanding) Where is the wise man? Where is the expert in the Mosaic law? Where is the debater of this age? Has God not made the wisdom of the world foolish? For since in the wisdom of God the world by its wisdom did not know God, God was pleased to save those who believe by the foolishness of preaching. For Jews demand miraculous signs and Greeks ask for wisdom, but we (apostles) preach about a crucified Christ, a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles.

   But to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength. Think about the circumstances of your call, brothers and sisters. Not many were wise by human standards, not many were powerful, not many were born to a privileged position. But God chose what the world thinks foolish to shame the wise, and God chose what the world thinks weak to shame the strong.)

   When foolish people decide for themselves, ‘what’s good, evil, right and wrong’, they are unwittingly falling into the same trap Satan laid for Eve and Adam. (Review Genesis 3:)

    Vain, foolish people want to think of themselves as divine. When people decide for themselves, ‘what’s right, wrong, good and evil’, they in fact make themselves little gods to themselves and often other listeners.

   This Is what attracted Eve, to Satan’s lie. (Gen 3:6-7; When the woman saw that the tree produced fruit that was good for food, was attractive to the eye, and was desirable for making one wise, she took some of its fruit and ate it. She also gave some of it to her husband who was with her, and he ate it. Then the eyes of both of them opened, and they knew they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.)

   Their outlook was innocence before disobeying. Before the temptation they looked to their Creator as Master and Teacher, afterward they doubted and yielded to temptation. (See John 7:39) After their minds opened to realize they were naked, they were ashamed, realizing God was clothed. Yielding to what seemed right, brought about God’s promise of eternal death.

   However Satan didn’t win, God had a planned way for His people’s saving. He could not be outdone by the Deceiver. The way to salvation through God the Son was planned.

   (John 3:16-21; For this is the way God loved the world: He gave His One and only Son, so that everyone who believes IN Him will not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world should be saved through Him. The one who believes IN him is not condemned. The one who does not believe has been condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the One and only Son of God. Now this is the basis for judging: that The Light has come into the world and people loved the darkness rather than The Light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone who does evil deeds hates The Light and does not come to The Light, so that their deeds will not be exposed. But the one who practices the truth comes to the Light, so that it may be plainly evident that his deeds have been done in God.)

   In keeping with God’s Sabbath rest principle, we believe God allotted six thousand years, for His created people to go the way that seemed right to their fleshly minds. God allows Satan to be the god of fleshly minded people, while calling out a sanctified chosen predestined people for His Name sake and kingdom purpose. Jesus reveals that Satan knows his time is short.

 

God identifies Himself, Holy Ways & Seasons, chapter 13

April 30th, 2022

 To: 35,521 subscribers we pray are being made “temples of God’s Spirit.” 4/30/22, God’s 1st Mo. Nisan 29, 5,782 until sunset.

    Each genuine Christian is a set aside “sanctified” a predestined person, gifted with believing IN Jesus faith, forgiveness of sin and eternal life. Only in Jesus is eternal life. Jesus identifies His church through Hebrews as; “Those He isn’t ashamed to call brethren.” Heb 2:11)

       The expression “all things under His control” occurs three times in scripture and in Hebrews 2:8, is the latter two occurrences. Not exactly identical to the Greek text, at Psalms 8:6, & quoted at the beginning. The Hebrews writer fits his understanding of “Psalms 8: praise song” showing us clearly how David viewed his Lord.

    (Ps 8:1-9: O Lord, our Lord, how magnificent is Your reputation throughout the earth! You reveal Your majesty in the heavens above! From the mouths of children and nursing babies You have ordained praise on account of Your adversaries, so that You might put an end to the vindictive enemy. When I look up at the heavens, which Your fingers made, and see the moon and the stars, which You set in place, of what importance is the human race, that You should notice them? Of what importance is mankind, that You should pay attention to them, and make them a little less than the heavenly beings? You grant mankind honor and majesty; You appoint them to rule over Your creation; You have placed everything under their authority, including all the sheep and cattle, as well as the wild animals, the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea and everything that moves through the currents of the seas. O Lord, our Lord, how magnificent is Your reputation throughout the earth!) We Believers IN are gifted with Jesus’ faith as was David.

    (Heb 2:10-13; For it was fitting for Him, (Jesus) for whom and through whom all things exist, (See John 1:1-5 & Colossians 1:15-20 also) in bringing many sons to glory, to make the pioneer of their salvation (Jesus) perfect through sufferings. For indeed He (Jesus) who makes holy and those being made holy all have the same origin, and so He is not ashamed to call them brothers and sisters, saying, “I will proclaim Your name to My brothers; in the midst of the assembly I will praise You.” (Quote from Psalms 22:22) (13) Again He says, “I will be confident in Him,” and again, “Here I am, with the children God has given Me.” (Quote from Isaiah 8:17-18.)

    The first begotten of God the Father and Pioneer of our salvation is Jesus. He was made perfect through suffering. (Hebrews 5:8-10 confirms; “Although Jesus was a Son, He learned obedience through the things He suffered. And by being perfected in this way, He became the source of eternal salvation to all who obey Him, and He was designated by God “the Father” as high priest in the order of Melchizedek.”)

   Speaking spiritually, Jesus and all God’s Elect have the same origin “in that all are born of woman with physical life in the blood and born spiritually from above.

   The good news, (gospel) is that God the Father is creating His spiritual family from flesh and blood people. Leading each to overcome lawlessness “sin” in His view and for His name sake.

   (Heb 2:14-18; Therefore, since the children share in flesh and blood, He (Jesus) likewise shared in their humanity, so that through death He could destroy the one who holds the power of death (that is, the devil), and set free those who were held in slavery all their lives by their fear of death. For surely His concern is not for angels, but He is concerned for Abraham’s descendants. Therefore He, (Jesus) had to be made like His brothers and sisters in every respect, so that He could become a merciful and faithful high priest in things relating to God, to make atonement for the sins of the people. For since He Himself suffered when He was tempted, He is able to help those who are tempted.)

   Abraham’s spiritual descendants are those who obey Jesus and shun what He declares evil, because they love Him. Fear is bondage and believing IN Jesus promises freedom from that bondage. So how and where does such freedom originate? From God the Father who does the calling, “opens minds and reveals Jesus.”

   (John 6:37; All that the Father gives Me shall come to Me; and they that comes to Me I will in no wise cast out.)

   Believers are gifted with minds agreeing with Jesus. (Believing that, is NOT believing IN.) Many in them (in the believing THAT category) assume that a person can choose the time of their repentance, ‘when to get saved that is’, when to publicly and verbally confess Jesus as the Christ and thus be saved is their theory. The problem with that belief is, (that’s works and it isn’t God’s Way.) God’s Way is that He chooses, (calls and reveals Himself through Jesus, open minds and grant genuine repentance.)

    (Heb 3:1-2: Therefore, holy brothers and sisters, partners in a heavenly calling, take note of Jesus, the apostle and high priest whom we confess, who is faithful to the One who appointed Him, as Moses was also in God’s house.)

   Consider: As a people Israel was not begotten of the holy spirit but under covenant law, ‘practically looking to Moses and the law.’ (Heb 3:3-6; “For Jesus has come to deserve greater glory than Moses, just as the builder of a house deserves greater honor than the house itself! For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God. Now Moses was faithful in all God’s house as a servant, to testify to the things that would be spoken. But Christ is faithful as a Son over God’s house. We are of His house, if in fact we hold firmly to our confidence and the hope we take pride in.)

    Followers of the Jesus, (as manifested to be in the holy scriptures) are partakers of THE heavenly calling and profess to be HIS WAY people! Jesus is worthy because He is the master builder. Through Jesus, God the Father created all things. Moses, the holy prophets and Christians are of His building!

   Christians are His temple, IF we hold fast, the faith of Jesus and stay true to God the Father’s calling. NOW the Hebrews writer quotes Psalms 95:7-11.

   (Heb 3:7-11; Therefore, the holy spirit says; “Ohthat today you would listen as He speaks! “Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellionin the day of testing in the wilderness. (There your fathers tested Me and tried Me and they saw My works for forty years. ThereforeI became provoked at that generation and saidTheir hearts are always wandering and they have not known My ways.) “As I swore in My angerThey will never enter My Rest!’”)

   Physical Israelites nor (do believers that) understand God’s Way. They see God through their inherited fleshly nature. (Looking to laws as they see them rather than the law giver.) Israelites looked to Moses (the house) rather than Creator, Jesus the Master Builder. (The Hebrews writer we believe to be Paul, is writing to converted Hebrews.) People to whom Jesus is revealed. A people confessing faith in Jesus’ blood sacrifice, His being our Intercessor, Lord and coming King. Today the many denominations are divided with many interpretations & see their god through their fleshly nature.

   NOT the God that set aside His Seasons & Sabbaths. (Heb 3:12-19; See to it, brothers and sisters, that none of you has an evil, unbelieving heart that forsakes the living God. But exhort one another each day, (as long as it is called, Today) that none of you may become hardened by sin’s deception. For we (Christians) have become partners with Christ, if in fact we hold our initial confidence firm until the end. As it says, “Ohthat Today you would listen as He speaks! Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.” For which ones heard and rebelled? Was it not all who came out of Egypt under Moses’ leadership? And against whom was God provoked for forty years? Was it not those who sinned, whose dead bodies fell in the wilderness? And to whom did He swear they would never enter into His Rest, except those who were disobedient? So we see that they could not enter because of unbelief.)

    As partners with Christ, Believers IN seek to know and support His Views. Seek to enter His Rest. (Believers IN are gifted with His desire to turn from what seems right to our fleshly outlook, because we’re led to understand that our inherited rationale wants to appease self rather than practice His Way.) Unbelief is sin and only the called Believers IN can be, “gifted with the imputation of God’s spiritual law to the mind.”

    Worldly religions can’t grasp spiritual discernment. Paul explained to the Corinthian church. (But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”) See 1Cor 2:14)

    May we each be led to pray for spiritual understanding. (Heb 4:1-2; Therefore we must be wary that, while the promise of entering His Rest remains open, none of you may seem to have come short of it. For we had good news proclaimed to us just as they did. But the message they heard did them no good, since they did not join in with those who heard it in faith.)

  The Patriarchs heard in faith and were led to rely on believing IN faith, “in the One promising.” They entered God’s Rest through His gifted faith. Remember all these things are written for our learning. (Romans 15:4)

    (Heb 4:3-7; For we who have believed enter that Rest, as He has said, “As I swore in My angerThey will never enter My Rest!’ And yet God’s works were accomplished from the foundation of the world. For He has spoken somewhere about the seventh day in this way: “And God rested on the seventh day from all His works,” but to repeat the text cited earlier: “They will never enter My Rest! Therefore, it remains for some to enter it, yet those to whom it was previously proclaimed did not enter because of disobedience. So, God again ordains a certain day, “Today” speaking through David after so long a time, as in the words quoted before, “Othat Today you would listen as He speaks! Do not harden your hearts.) (Obedient Believers IN have entered that rest!) Unbelievers will enter when Jesus is revealed during His millennial rule. See Joel 3:

God identifies Himself, Holy Ways & Seasons, chapter 12

To: 35,499 subscribers we pray are being made “temples of God’s Spirit.” 4/27/22, God’s 1st Mo. Nisan 24, 5,782 until sunset. 

   Some denominational theologians give much attention to accurately pronouncing God’s name. Judean’s and Jehovah Witnesses particularly. Jesus inspired Isaiah to write, (Isa 42:8; I am the Lord! That is My nameI will not share My glory with anyone else, or the praise due Me with idols.)

(Isa 52:6; For this reason, My people will know My name, for this reason they will know at that time that I am the One who says, ‘Here I am.’”) In English “The I AM” “I AM LORD” “I AM GOD” or “I AM HE” is accurate when thinking in terms of Israel, Creator, Re-Creator, Deliverer and Savior.”

    Ezek 39:7-8; I will make My holy name known in the midst of My people Israel; I will not let My holy name be profaned anymore. Then the nations will know that I am the Lord, the Holy One of Israel. Realize that it is coming and it will be done, declares the Sovereign Lord. It is the day I have spoken about.)

    Believers IN, “followers of Jesus” are heirs with Abraham for salvation.” In prayer, should think, “God of Abraham” is accurate, Jesus made him a friend. (See Galatians 3:29) To believers Jesus said; “You are My friends, if you do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you NOT servants; for the servant knows not what his Lord does: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of My Father I have MADE known unto you.” John 15:15)

    Not only are genuine Christians Jesus’ friends; we’re NOT friends with this world’s system of things. Our Lord’s brother James taught it.

    (“You adulterers and adulteresses, know you not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.” James 4:4)

     Obedience to Jesus is to Believe IN Him, “as in practicing His Way and considering His Ways superior to what may seem right to our human minds.”

     (Hebrews 2:1-4; Therefore, believers must pay closer attention to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away. For if the message spoken through angels proved to be so firm that every violation or disobedience received its just penalty, how will we escape if we neglect such a great salvation? It was first communicated through the Lord and was confirmed to us by those who heard Him, while God confirmed their witness with signs and wonders and various miracles and gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to His will.)

    God is allowing the whole world to be subjected to Satan thinking. Thus, unbelieving people live the way that seems right. God knew that outcome, the divisions and how the fleshly mind would play into Satan’s hand and knew he’d attempt to bring about a semblance of world peace while turning the world from God’s truth.

    The first Believers IN Jesus practiced His ‘Judeo Christian Way’ of love and His apostles were led to teach the spiritual magnification of the law. As prophesied, there have always been some scattered true Believers and these have always been hated, “as was Jesus” and persecuted by mainstream.

  During the apostles day many persecutions were publicized. Jesus’ brother, “Jude” wrote in his short letter, that the apostate was already prevalent. Counterfeit churches have grown speedily from before 100AD, to present. Organized apostate thinkers persecuted, killing true Believers and causing many to go underground. We’ll get Paul’s overview of this in Hebrew chapter 11: Counterfeit churches refer to Believers as heretics, because they didn’t believe in God the Father, God the Son and refused to be submissive.

    (Hebrews 2:5-9; For God did not put the world to come, about which we are speaking, under the control of angels. But one in a certain place testified, saying, ‘what is man, that You are mindful of him? or the Son of Man, that You visit Him? You made Him “Jesus” a little lower than the angels; You crowned Him “Jesus” with glory, honor, and did set Him over the works of Your hands: You have put all things in subjection under His feet. For in that He put all in subjection under Him, He left nothing that is not put under Him, but now we see not yet all things put under Him. But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels FOR the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor; that He, by the grace of God should taste death for every man.)

    Flesh and blood people are made a little lower than angels! In the flesh, Jesus was a little lower than angels, only to taste death for every man. Now our Creator ‘Jesus’ can take charge of any situation at any time, and now about the business of allowing unbelieving mankind follow, the way of confusion, which will become more chaotic as the end unfolds.

   Before Jesus is revealed individually, people live and practiced according to what seemed right to their inherited fleshly minds, led to shun old practices. Paul explains to Christians.

   (Ephesians 2:2-9; Wherein in time past you, (who were once unbelievers) walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, (Satan) the spirit that now works in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we ALL had our conduct in times past in the LUST of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by NATURE the children of wrath, even as others. But God, who is rich in mercy, for His great love wherewith He loved us, Even when we were DEAD in sins, has quickened us together with Christ, (by grace you are saved;) And HAS raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: That in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.)

    The Author of confusion is in this world, “he’s not of God, but by permission of God.’ (1 Cor 14:33; For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the Saints.)

   (Hebrews 2:10; For it became Him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the Captain of their salvation (Jesus) perfect through sufferings.) His bringing many people into glory” define His Saints.

    (Hebrews 2:11-12; For both He that sanctifies and they who are sanctified are all OF ONE: for which cause He is not ashamed to call them brethren, Saying, I will declare Your name unto My brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto You.) Sanctified people are those “at one” with one another and Jesus.

    (Hebrews 2:13-16; And again, I will put My trust in Him. And again, Behold I and the children which God HAS GIVEN Me. Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He also Himself likewise took part of the same; that through DEATH He might destroy him (Satan) that had the power of death, that is, the devil; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. For verily He (Jesus) took NOT on Him the NATURE of angels; but He took on Him the SEED of Abraham.) Remember Jesus said; God the Father does the calling.

   (John 6:37-40; All that the Father GIVES Me shall come to Me; and him that comes to Me I will in no wise cast out. For I came down from heaven, NOT to do MY own will, but the will of HIM that sent Me. And this is the Father’s will which has sent Me, that of all which He has GIVEN Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it (themup again at the last day. And this is the will of Him that sent Me, that everyone which SEES the Son, and believes ON Him, may have EVERLASTING LIFE: and I will raise him up at the LAST DAY.)

    Believers are led to turn from, (repent for having lived in error) and thus make God’s Word center thoughts and deeds. (Meditating on God’s Word is purifying spiritual growth.)
