John The Apostle, chapter 32

To: 11,516 Persons being made temples of God’s spirit: “Churches of God.”

6/20/18, God’s 4th month, Tammuz 7, 5778 until sunset.

      Had God not purposely put in Adam and Eve a part of Himself and a desire to be independent of Himself, “all of us would operate instinctively as do wild animals, birds and sea critters.” We would have nothing to overcome, no desire for knowledge and certainly no spiritual component

      Long before Adam, God the Father allocated all things to God the Son “Jesus” who created, destroyed: then re-created earth from its empty without shape and dark condition, separated light from darkness, called the light “day” and the darkness “night” there was evening and morning making the first day. (Gen 1:3-5.) (See John 1:1-5. Col 1:15-29 and Heb 1:.)

      The many so called educated among us can’t make themselves believe in creation, but Jesus’ apostle Peter did and warned us about them.

     (2Peter 3;3-7; “Above all, understand this: In the last days blatant scoffers will come, being propelled by their own evil urges and saying, “Where is His promised return? For ever since our ancestors died, all things have continued as they were from the beginning of creation.” (5) For they deliberately suppress this fact, that by the word of God heavens existed long ago and an earth was formed out of water and by means of water. Through these things the world existing at that time was destroyed when it destruction of the ungodly. was deluged with water. But by the same word the present heavens and earth have been reserved for fire, by being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly.”) Study the conclusion of 2Peter.

      The Lord God “Jesus” re-created what had become chaotic.

      (Gen 1:9-10; God said, “Let the water under the sky, ’clouds’ be gathered to one place and let dry ground appear.” It was so. God called the dry ground “land” and the gathered waters he called “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, (18) 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 1:26-31; 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.” (27) God created humankind in His own image, in the image of God He created them, male and female He created them.” (28) God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply! Fill the earth and subdue it! Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and every creature that moves on the ground.” (29) Then God said, “I now give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the entire earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the animals of the earth, and to every bird of the air, and to all the creatures that move on the ground – everything that has the breath of life in it – I give every green plant for food.” It was so.” God saw all that He had made – and it was very good! There was evening, and there was morning, the sixth day.”)

      Though we know plants, animals, birds and sea critters rot and return the earth: “only humankind is specifically noted as being created from soil.

      (Gen 2:7; “The Lord God formed the man from the soil of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.”) Only to humankind, did God put in, “give” the breath of life, “a part of Himself.”

      Before rain, before shrubs and plants had sprouted God created an orchard. (Gen 2:1-6) Rivers divided named land mass.

      (Gen 2:16; Then the Lord God commanded the man, “You may freely eat fruit from every tree of the orchard, but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will surely die.”)

      Had God not purposely put in Adam and Eve a part of Himself and a desire to be independent of Himself, “all of us would live instinctively as do animals, birds and sea critters.” We’d have nothing to overcome, no desire for knowledge and certainly no spiritual component. We wouldn’t be subject to God’s Law, mercy and grace: we wouldn’t have inherited Adam’s sin nature. BUT God lovingly made us to potential be as He is. Jesus’ apostles nor can we understand this awesomeness until it’s gifted.  

      (John 13:24-27; ““So Simon Peter gestured to this disciple “John” to ask Jesus who it was He was referring to. Then the disciple whom Jesus loved leaned back against Jesus’ chest and asked Him, “Lord, who is it?” Jesus replied, “It is the one to whom I will give this piece of bread after I have dipped it in the dish.” Then He dipped the piece of bread in the dish and gave it to Judas Iscariot, “Simon’s son” and after Judas took the piece of bread, Satan entered into him. Jesus said to him, “What you are about to do, do quickly.”

      Judas, was never gifted to believe IN Jesus. Judas may have believed THAT: was never a loyal follower. Likewise professing denominational minded Christians are only “believers that.” (Perhaps believing Jesus died for the sins of the world, but not necessarily believing IN so as to lovingly obey Him as Lord.) “Such are “believers that” not, “believe IN.”

      (Our fleshly inherited nature allows unbelievers to decide for themselves what’s right, wrong, good and evil.) When God chooses to make us a Believer IN, He converts our nature to one more like His own. Converted individual agrees totally with God regarding, right, wrong, good and evil. The fleshly self serving spirit in Judas allowed him to think, “monetary profit above all else.” When Judas made his exit the others disciples were still questioning why Jesus answered John; “it is the one I am going to give this piece of bread to.” Apparently only John knew. (They all heard Jesus say to Judas; “do what you have to do quickly.”)

      John 13:28-30; (Now none of those present at the table understood why Jesus said this to Judas. Some thought that, because Judas had the money box, Jesus was telling him to buy whatever they needed for the feast, or to give something to the poor.) Judas took the piece of bread and went out immediately. (Now it was night.) Likely it aggravated Judas that Jesus knew his mind. Let’s all consider that! When Jesus chooses to; He knows our minds.

      (John 13:31-33; “When Judas had gone out, Jesus said, “Now the Son of Man is glorified and God is glorified in Him. If God is glorified in Him, God will also glorify Him in Himself, and He will glorify Him right away.” Children, I am still with you for a little while. You will look for Me and just as I said to the Jewish religious leaders, ‘Where I am going you cannot come,’ now I tell you the same.”) Our glory is for a short time and practically meaningless. Jesus was permanently glorified by His Father at His creation. (Again; review John 1:1-5, Colossians 1:15-20 and Hebrews 1:) ) All things made and all things created, have been through God the Son “Jesus.” He was likely the Spokesperson when Adam was created, the one saying, “let US make man in Our image.”

      Jesus chose to be born human, He chose to experience, learn, teach and be the Shepherd to Believers IN. God the Father and God the Son chose that Creator Jesus would give His life for the remission of our sins. NOW Jesus is glorified again, it’s done and He will keep every promise.
