The Family, (God’s Household) chapter 19

(To 9,910) To in home churches:: “People being made temples of His spirit.” 3/9/18  God’s 12th month, Adar 21, 5778 until sunset.

       Heavenly Father: make as many seeking Your Way repentant “for having lived the way that seemed right to their fleshly minds.” Open minds and hearts to Your Way is our prayer in the name of Jesus. AMEN.

       Our Lord and Savior Jesus’ commanded Israel through Moses. Reminded them of their covenant promises. They would be His people and He their God. Jesus again, quoted His Words through Moses to; “His would be followers” recorded by Mark, 

      (Mark 12:29-34; Jesus answered, “The most important is: ‘Listen, Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ (31) The second is: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’(Quote from Deut 6:4-5 and Josh 22:5)There is no other commandment greater than these.” The expert in the law said to him, “That is true, Teacher; you are right to say that He is One, and there is no one else besides Him. And to love Him with all your heart, with all your mind, and with all your strength and to love your neighbor as yourself is more important than all burnt offerings and sacrifices.” (34) When Jesus saw he had answered thoughtfully, He said to him, “You are not far from the kingdom of God.” Then no one dared any longer to question Him.”)

       Worldly religious don’t grasp Jesus’ truth regarding this earth’s populations being deceived by Satan. Few ask thoughtful questions. Remember our sharing Jesus’ prophetic words recorded by Matthew?. (Matt 24:24; “For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the Elect.”)

      Called out Believers IN, need to grasp that fact: “deceived people don’t know they are!” The religiously deceived, “particularly the clergy” are demonically led to unwittingly “present themselves as angels of light.” Jesus’ apostle Paul encountered these deceptive personality traits in people attempting to make themselves disciples of Jesus.

       (2Corinthians 11:10-15; “As the truth of Christ is in me, this boasting of mine will not be stopped in the regions of Achaia. Why? Because I do not love you? God knows I do! And what I am doing I will continue to do, so that I may eliminate any opportunity for those who want a chance to be regarded as our ‘we apostles’ equals in the things they boast about. For such people are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. Therefore it is not surprising his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness, whose end will correspond to their actions.”)

       Today’s professing Christians don’t grasp the fact that “the old and new covenants are with a chosen people. The first with physical Israelites, the second with spiritual Israelites. Spiritual Israelites being a people God calls and imputes with His spirit; “making them AT ONE with Himself.” His spirit being “the comforter or advocate.” (The Lord God changed Jacob’s name to Israel: “the name meaning, God fights or God fights for.” 

       Within this earth’s populations are many personable, likeable people; charismatic personalities, “that’s unknowingly allow themselves to be tools of Satan’s.” Jesus had His prophet Isaiah write and reveal these things to His called.

       (Isaiah 8:19-20; They will say to you, “Seek oracles at the pits used to conjure up underworld spirits, from the magicians who chirp and mutter incantations. Should people not seek oracles from their gods, by asking the dead about the destiny of the living?” Then you must recall the Lord’s instructions and the prophetic testimony of what would happen. Certainly they say such things because their minds are spiritually darkened.”

       There are gods of people’s imagination “their gods”  instructing: “but people God fights for; are given to understand: they say such because their minds are spiritually darkened. YES, “if it were possible, even God’s Elect would be deceived.”

       God’s prophetic Word is sure, written in past tense “a good portion of time” and looking forward to the understanding that will be given to the whole earth. As Jesus’ last Passover was being observed, He began explaining to His disciples, “what He must carry out.” (Jesus said; “I must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things at the hands of the elders, chief priests, and experts in the law, be killed, and on the third day be raised.” Matt 16:21)

      Still thinking fleshly, “Peter’s mind not spiritually discerning; he acted. (“So Peter took Jesus aside and began to rebuke Him: “God forbid, Lord! This must not happen to You!” But Jesus turned and said to Peter, “Get behind Me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to Me, because you are not setting your mind on God’s interests, but on man’s.” Matt 16:22-23)

      A QUESTION to ourselves should be; “what’s my interest? And do I think fleshly or spiritually.

      (Matt 16:24-26; “Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wants to become My follower, he must deny himself, “deny your own personal fleshly opinions” take up his cross, “way of living” and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. For what does it benefit a person if he gains the whole world but forfeits his life? Or what can a person give in exchange for his life?)

      TAKE UP CROSS; is to practice truth, follow Jesus’ way of life. Jesus gives His prophetic word regarding His good news, “the gospel.”

      (Matt 16:27-28; “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.”) Afterward, Jesus took Peter, James and John, up to the mount of transfiguration where God the Father spoke. (See Matthew 17:2 and Peter’s account.) These three saw Jesus in white raiment, Moses and Elijah speaking with Him and heard God the Father speak to Jesus. Jesus’ promise to return and reign is sure.

       (Luke 9:28-36; “Now about eight days after these sayings, Jesus took with Him Peter, John, and James, and went up the mountain to pray. As Jesus was praying, the appearance of His face was transformed, and His clothes became very bright, a brilliant white. (30) Then two men, Moses and Elijah, began talking with Jesus. They appeared in glorious splendor and spoke about Jesus’ departure that He was about to carry out at Jerusalem. (32) Now Peter and those with him were quite sleepy, but as they became fully awake, they saw Jesus’ glory and the two men standing with Him. Then as the men were starting to leave, Peter said to Jesus, “Master, it is good for us to be here. Let us make three shelters, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah” – not knowing what he was saying. ‘again Peter thinking fleshly’ (34) As Peter was saying this, a cloud came and overshadowed them, and they were afraid as they entered the cloud. Then a voice came from the cloud, saying, “This is My Son, My Chosen One. Listen to Him!” (36) After the voice had spoken, Jesus was found alone. So they kept silent and told no one at that time anything of what they had seen.”)

      These three apostles saw a foreshadowing of “Jesus in His kingdom.” Other scripture bear out that the dead in Christ are “about God’s throne in spirit.” Jesus is the first to be bodily resurrected to spiritual life! Remember; Paul explained.

       (1Cor 15:22-23; “For just as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive. But each in his own order: Christ, the firstfruits; then when Christ comes, those who belong to Him.”)

       Take time to rejoice as we prayerfully study Jesus’ good news from: (Psalms 97:.

The Lord reigns! Let the earth be happy! Let the many coastlands rejoice! Dark clouds surround Him; equity and justice are the foundation of His throne. Fire goes before Him;

on every side it burns up His enemies. His lightning bolts light up the world; the earth sees and trembles. The mountains melt like wax before the Lord, before the Lord of the whole earth.”)

      Many scriptures make it clear, “ultimately all the unrepentant will be burned up, and that during Jesus’ reign, the whole earth will know Him as He manifest Himself to be in His holy Word.”

       (Psalm 97:6-9; “The sky declares His justice, and all the nations see His splendor. All who worship idols are ashamed, those who boast about worthless idols. All the gods bow down before Him. Zion hears and rejoices, the towns of Judah are happy, because of Your judgments, O Lord. For You, O Lord, are the sovereign king over the whole earth; you are elevated high above all gods.”)

      All gods are in the imaginations of people! Our Creator God is not the god of Halloween, Christmas or Easter. God hates traditions that honor imaginary gods.

       (Psalms 97:10-12; “You who love the Lord, hate evil! He protects the lives of His faithful followers; He delivers them from the power of the wicked. (Remember the word, “Israel” means “God fights.“ The Godly bask in the Light; the morally upright experience joy. You Godly ones, rejoice in the Lord! Give thanks to His holy name.”) Pray that many are spiritually led to seek the God of David.

      (Psalms 2:1-12; “Why do the nations rebel? Why are the countries devising plots that will fail? The kings of the earth form a united front; the rulers collaborate against the Lord and His anointed king. They say, “Let’s tear off the shackles they’ve put on us! Let’s free ourselves from their ropes!” The One enthroned in heaven laughs in disgust; the Lord taunts them. Then He angrily speaks to them and terrifies them in His rage, saying, “I Myself have installed My king on Zion, My holy hill.” The king says, “I will announce the Lord’s decree. He said to Me: ‘You are My Son! This very day I have become Your father! Ask Me, and I will give You the nations as Your inheritance, the ends of the earth as Your personal property. (9) You will break them with an iron scepter; you will smash them like a potter’s jar!’” So now, you kings, do what is wise; you rulers of the earth, submit to correction! Serve the Lord in fear! Repent in terror! Give sincere homage! Otherwise He will be angry, and you will die because of your behavior, when His anger quickly ignites. How blessed are all who take shelter in Him!”)

       God the Father and God the Son “Jesus” INSPIRED these words to be written by the psalmist. Jesus was and is, king David’s Lord. ALL our Lord’s prophets, apostles and individual followers, will be in the first resurrection and rule with Jesus.
