John The Apostle, chapter 10

To: 11,002 Churches of God, “a people being made temples of His spirit.”

5/17/1, God’s 3rd month, Sivan 3, 5778 until sunset.

      Pentecost “the third annual Sabbath” is May 20; “Sivan 6” starting the previous sunset. Its one of The Lord God’s holiest days and birthday of His New Covenant Church. The primary promise to our ancestors was fulfilled. God’s spirit gifted to people making them temples, “at one within Himself” is still a mystery to the world. Today’s Christendom fulfills Jesus’ prophecy. Like Pharisees of old, “assuming Jesus is different than the Lord God who communed with Noah and Abraham.”

      A past Pharisee “Paul” was witnessing to king Agrippa when he said the following. (Acts 26:4-13; “Now all the Jews know the way I lived from my youth, spending my life from the beginning among my own people and in Jerusalem. They know, because they have known me from time past, if they are willing to testify, that according to the strictest party of our religion, I lived as a Pharisee. And now I stand here on trial because of my hope in the promise made by God to our ancestors, a promise that our twelve tribes hope to attain as they earnestly serve God night and day. Concerning this hope the Jews are accusing me, Your Majesty! Why do you people think it is unbelievable that God raises the dead? Of course, I myself was convinced that it was necessary to do many things HOSTILE to the name of Jesus the Nazarene. (10) And that is what I did in Jerusalem: Not only did I lock up many of the Saints in prisons by the authority I received from the chief priests, but I also cast my vote against them when they were sentenced to death. I punished them often in all the synagogues and tried to force them to blaspheme. Because I was so furiously enraged at them, I went to persecute them even in foreign cities. (12) “While doing this very thing, as I was going to Damascus with authority and complete power from the chief priests, about noon along the road, Your Majesty, I saw a light from heaven, brighter than the sun, shining everywhere around me and those traveling with me.”) As always study the whole.

     Again Paul explains. (Hebrews 5:11-14; “On this topic we have much to say and it is difficult to explain, since you, ’Hebrews’ have become sluggish in hearing. For though you should in fact be teachers by this time, you need someone to teach you the beginning elements of God’s utterances. You have gone back to needing milk, not solid food. For everyone who lives on milk is inexperienced in the message of righteousness, because he is an infant. But solid food is for the mature, whose perceptions are trained by practice to discern both good and evil.”)

       YES, we need training that comes through practices, “practices showing respect for what God has to say!”

      (John 4:27-30; “Now at that very moment Jesus’ disciples came back. They were shocked because He was speaking with a woman. However, no one said, “What do you want?” or “Why are you speaking with her?” Then the woman left her water jar, went off into the town and said to the people, “Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did. Surely He can’t be the Messiah, can He?” So they left the town and began coming to Him.”) Apparently this Samaritan woman was the first non-Israelite to be Jesus’ witness.

        (John 4:31-34; “Meanwhile the disciples were urging Him, “Rabbi, eat something.” But Jesus said to them, “I have food to eat that you know nothing about.” So the disciples began to say to one another, “No one brought Him anything to eat, did they?” (34) Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of the One who sent Me and to complete His work.”)

      Jesus is Creator. (See John 1:1-5, Colossians 1:15-20 and Heb 1:1-4) Jesus’ work is also God the Father’s work. (In this regard “They are One.) At that time, Jesus’ followers knew nothing about the indwelling holy spirit Jesus was referring to when He said; “I have food to eat that you know nothing about.”

      (John 4:35-38; ““Don’t you say, ‘There are four more months and then comes the harvest?’ I tell you, look up and see that the fields are already white for harvest! The One who reaps receives pay and gathers fruit for eternal life, so that the One who sows and the One who reaps can rejoice together. (37) For in this instance the saying is true, ‘One sows and another reaps.’ I sent you, “apostles” to reap what you did not work for; others have labored and you have entered into their labor.””)

      Who did the sowing? God the Father through God the Son, who called Moses and the prophets. They labored, many were killed and persecuted. Jesus’ apostles had the mission of teaching Believers IN about God’s Way and oracles. After believing IN and becoming gifted recipients of God’s spirit, Paul could say the following to the gentile Ephesus church.  

       (Ephesians 2:19-22; “So then you, “non-Israelites” 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.”)

        Christendom attempt to dismiss the Old Covenant as not being relevant to the new. Make their own theology, support their own schools and build their own membership. Not understanding that God’s imputed spirit in Believers making them at one with Himself. It’s the theological differences in Jesus’ new covenant and His old. Peter explains.

      (1Peter 4:10-11; “Just as each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of the varied grace of God. Whoever speaks, let it be with God’s Words, “oracles.” Whoever serves, do so with the strength that God supplies, so in everything God will be glorified through Jesus Christ. To Him belong the glory and the power forever and ever. Amen.”)

      (John 4:39-42; “Now many Samaritans from that town believed in Him because of the report of the woman who testified, “He told me everything I ever did.” So when the Samaritans came to Him, they began asking Him to stay with them. He stayed there two days, and because of His Word many more believed. They said to the woman, “No longer do we believe because of your words, for we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this One really is the Savior of the world.”)

      Many professing Christians claim that Jesus is their personal Savior; “how many know He is the Savior of this world?” He is going to return and save this world’s people from their destructive ways, “from it’s demonic divisionary god.” (study Matthew 24:) Jesus is going to bring peace, righteous judgment, knowledge of Himself and God the Father. Study Isaiah 11:, for our purpose let’s consider verse 9, (“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.”)

       As Jesus was about to go to Jerusalem and celebrate His last Passover in the flesh, He spoke the following: (Matthew 20:17-19: “We are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be handed over to the chief priests and the experts in the law. They will condemn Him to death and will turn Him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged severely and crucified. Yet on the third day, He will be raised.”)

       Not many years ago, unbelieving gentile churches were accusing the Jews for Jesus’ death, “incited hatred of Jews worldwide.” Causing death and persecutions, especially in Germany. (Jewish experts in the law did make the decision to arrest Jesus and they did hand Him over to the gentile ruling authorities.) Jesus knew exactly how things were going to unfold. Jesus inspired Isaiah to write much of the detail. See Isaiah 52:.

       Intelligent people in every age have always known; “Passover, Nisan 14” doesn’t fall on a particular day of the week annually. With demonic help, deceivers planned an agenda 2,000 plus years ago, camouflaging the reality of Passover’s meaning. (Causing division, chaos and persecutions among naïve Christendom in particular. Pagan zodiac worshipers accepted an imaginary Jesus. Appealing to pagan societies, “days of the week were named for pagan gods.” The same purposely twisting God’s Word, “saying Paul changed God’s seventh day Sabbath; “thus Christendom in general is now pagan.”
