John The Apostle, chapter 1

To: “10,803 Churches of God” people desiring to be “At One with God.” 5/5/18, God’s 2nd month, Iyar20, 5778 until sunset.

      God the Father and God the Son’s primary characteristic is love. God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son. John 3:16. (1John 3:16-17; “We have come to know love by this: that Jesus laid down His life for us; thus we ought to lay down our lives for our fellow Christians. But whoever has the world’s possessions and sees his fellow Christian in need and shuts off his compassion against him, how can the love of God reside in such a person?”)

      It was a loving act when the Lord God ‘Jesus’ created mankind in His image and likeness to ultimately be gifted with His spiritual likeness. “Be family; literal children of God the Father.” When the Lord God flooded this earth long before re-creating it, animals and mankind: He was looking forward to His bringing peace, security, righteous judgment, binding Satan and much more.

      Jesus’ miraculous fleshly birth was an act of love, thus the Baptist could say; “ (Matt 3:11-12; “I baptize you with water, for repentance, but the One coming after me is more powerful than I am – I am not worthy to carry His sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. His winnowing fork is in His hand, and He will clean out His threshing floor and will gather His wheat into the storehouse, but the chaff He will burn up with inextinguishable fire.”) Chaff represents people unwilling to believe IN and repent, His wheat are the called repentant who desire to be at one with Him.

       An angel appeared to Mary’s husband to be, ‘Joseph’  and shared Isaiah’s prophecy regarding Ahaz who didn’t want to put the Lord to test, so Isaiah said; (Isa 7:22-23; “This all happened so that what was spoken by the Lord through the prophet would be fulfilled: “Look! The virgin will conceive and bear a Son, and they will call him Emmanuel,” which means “God with us.”

      (Matt1:24-25; When Joseph awoke from sleep he did what the angel of the Lord told him. He took his wife, but did not have marital relations with her until she gave birth to a Son, whom he named Jesus.”)

      John the Baptist’s birth was also miraculous.

      (Luke 1:13-17; But the angel said, “Do not be afraid, Zechariah, for your prayer has been heard, and your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son; you will name him John. Joy and gladness will come to you, and many will rejoice at his birth, for he will be great in the sight of the Lord. He must never drink wine or strong drink, and he will be filled with the Holy Spirit, even before his birth. He will turn many of the people of Israel to the Lord their God. (17) And he will go as forerunner before the Lord in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers back to their children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make ready for the Lord a people prepared for Him.”) Called out predestined repentant people, have been prepared for Jesus.

      (Luke 1:34-45; Mary said to the angel, “How will this be, since I have not had sexual relations with a man?” The angel replied, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. Therefore the child to be born will be holy; He will be called the Son of God. (36) “And look, your relative Elizabeth has also become pregnant with a son in her old age – although she was called barren, she is now in her sixth month! For nothing will be impossible with God.” So Mary said, “Yes, I am a servant of the Lord; let this happen to me according to your word.” Then the angel departed from her.

      (Luke 1:39-45; In those days Mary got up and went hurriedly into the hill country, to a town of Judah, and entered Zechariah’s house and greeted Elizabeth. When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her132 womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. She exclaimed with a loud voice, “Blessed are you among women and blessed is the child in your womb! (43) And who am I that the mother of my Lord should come and visit me? For the instant the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy. And blessed is she who believed that what was spoken to her by the Lord would be fulfilled.”)

       Zachariah, Elizabeth, Mary and Joseph were descendents of Aaron and David. All these events were and Jesus’ second coming is predestined.

       Creator, re-Creator, Sustainer and coming King of Kings ‘Jesus’ with God His Father has pre-planned it all, prophesied it through Abraham, Moses and other prophets.    

       Jesus’ Supremacy was revealed to His apostles, “Paul proclaimed.”

      (Colossians 1:15-20; He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation, for all things in heaven and on earth were created by Him – all things, whether visible or invisible, whether thrones or dominions, whether principalities or powers – all things were created through Him and for Him. He Himself is before all things and all things are held together in Him. (18) He is the head of the body, the church, as well as the beginning, the firstborn from among the dead, so that He Himself may become first in all things. For God ’the Father’ was pleased to have all His fullness dwell in the Son. and through Him to reconcile all things to Himself by making peace through the blood of His cross – through Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven.”)

      Jesus loved His apostles, loves us and the world; “but He had a special relationship with His apostle John.” For proclaiming the Word of God and Jesus’ testimony John was confined to the island of Patmos.

      (Revelations 1:9-11; “I, John, your brother and the one who shares with you in the persecution, kingdom, and endurance that are in Jesus, was on the island called Patmos because of the word of God and the testimony about Jesus. (10) I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day when I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet, saying: “Write in a book what you see and send it to the seven churches – to Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, and Laodicea.”) Theologians and translators would have us believe the “Lord’s Day” to be the first day of the week; if so, “it certainly wouldn’t have been named after the sun and called Sunday.” Jerusalem will be under siege before Jesus’ returns and He tells us flee the persecution.

     (Matt 24:20-22; “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.”) Scriptural evidence indicate  more so that the Sabbath is the Lord’s Day.

        Jesus’ revelations to John is that he write in a book what he sees and sent to the seven churches: “obey, overcome - conquer to the end is each letter’s primary admonition.” Each letter either mentions seven stars or seven lampstands. (Rev 1::20; The mystery of the seven stars that you saw in My right hand and the seven golden lampstands is this: The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.” Study these seven letters.

      Jesus walks among His seven churches, compliments for not tolerating evil, testing those calling themselves apostles, but are not. Admonishes not to leave their first love. Compliments for recognizing those claiming to be Jews ’Christian’ but are not. Advises that the devil is allowed to put some in prison that they may be tested. Ones overcoming to the end won’t be harmed by the second death. Don’t follow Balaam nor the Nicolaitians’ teaching, sacrifices to demons and sexual immorality. Jesus describes Himself as the Son of God, whose eyes are like fiery flame and feet like polished bronze.

      Some are admonished for tolerating Jezebel who calls herself a prophetess, deceiving to commit sexual immorality and sacrificing to idols. Promising to strike her followers with deadly diseases. Promising to punish for bad deeds. From the One who holds the seven spirits of God and the seven stars: I know your deeds, your reputation that you are alive, but in reality you are dead. Remember what you received and heard, obey and repent, or I will come like a thief against you. I the True One, hold the key of David, I open doors that no one can shut and shut doors no one can open: I know your deeds. I know ones with little strength, you that have obeyed My word and not denied My name. I am going to make those from the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews “Christian’ but are lying, come and bow at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you.

        To each Jesus says; “he that has an ear had better here what the spirit says to the churches.
