John The Apostle, chapter 35

To: 11,576 Persons being made temples of God’s spirit: “Churches of God.”

6/24/18, God’s 4th month, Tammuz 11, 5778 until sunset.

       Worldly religions don’t understand; “believing IN Jesus is gifted to His called Elect.” Seemingly, they think, “believing that” Jesus lived and died for the sins of the world saves. Meaning they believe the historical account of Jesus birth, resurrection and ascension. Such belief “by its self” requires no action. (Gifted believing IN requires “the action of turning” from the former life to a new life in Christ Jesus.) Lovingly seeking Jesus’ Way and obey from a love of God outlook.”

      Jesus’ good news, “gospel” is about living Jesus’ example, “believing in His return to bringing peace on earth,” that Jesus is all He is manifested to be. Review what He’s manifested to be at John 1:1-5 and Hebrews 1: these two scriptural text agree with 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. 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’ gospel includes Satan being allowed to deceive the whole world, before His return. Except time be shortened, “no flesh will be saved alive. Jesus is going to bind Satan and make knowledge of Himself and God our Father known to the world. Reveal that He is the resurrection, truth and Light. At millennia’s end “Jesus’ enemies including death will be no more. Then God the Father comes down with New Jerusalem.

      Jesus described what we’re to expect before His coming.

      (Mark 13:19-20; “For in those days there will be suffering unlike anything that has happened from the beginning of the creation that God created until now, or ever will happen. And if the Lord had not cut short those days, no one would be saved. But because of the Elect, whom He chose, He has cut them short.”)

      (Matthew 24:22; “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.”)

     Worldly populations are deceived but “Jesus’ Way people are not.” Jesus’ way is not a religion, “it‘s The Way spelled out in His ten commandments.

      His Sabbaths foreshadow: “His planning, saving, redeeming, delivering and judgment.” A time of rest from demonic deceptions.

      (Revelations 21:5-8; “And the One seated on the throne said: “Look! I am making all things new!” Then He said to me, “Write it down, because these words are reliable and true.” He also said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the one who is thirsty I will give water free of charge from the spring of the water of life. The one who conquers. “overcomes” will inherit these things, and I will be his God and he will be My son. But to the cowards, unbelievers, detestable persons, murderers, the sexually immoral, and those who practice magic spells, idol worshipers, and all those who lie, their place will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur. That is the second death.”)

      Satan desires to camouflages the gift of immortality and Israel’s physical resurrection. His lie is “all are born to live forever someplace.” Worldly religion teach some form of his lie “a born with immortality doctrine.” Jesus taught and inspired His apostles to teach, “Immortality is gifted to called, repentant followers of Jesus.”

      Truth magnifies our responsibility. It insults worldly religions because it’s in people’s nature to make imaginary gods that agrees with their developing ideas and concepts. So, people have been deciding for self what’s right, wrong, good and evil. From the time of Adam and Eve, each clan began to imagine and develop gods that fit their concepts. Worshiping images, the sun, zodiac and imaginary deities.

      God gives us the history of where such thinking led people before the flood of Noah’s day. The direction all people are led, when they rely on their own or some organization’s thinking, rather than looking to our Creator and His commandments. The result, many religions.

      Every child goes through imaginary development, “in part based on parental, societal and practicing customs.” God gave the Israelites His commandments for their good; “teaching them how to demonstrate love toward Him and one another.” To help these fleshly minded people control their imaginations; “God was adamant that these fleshly minded people write these rules of conduct in places to be reviewed daily.”

      Before Israel’s deliverance from Egypt other societies had developed their own imagined deities. Jesus’ apostles referred to these societies as pagan. (Paganism is the practice of altering God’s ways) (We may not realize it clearly now, “but god has reasons for allowing people go the way that seems right, rather than making people prove and live His Way.)

      The holy scriptures teach us clearly, that God is allowing Satan to be the god of this world; “leading this world’s system of things.” Satan knew how to appeal to Eve, then Adam, “he knew their built in desires.” The appeal of deciding for themselves about good and evil. Every child is born with that desire; “little children need responsible parental discipline and training.” It’s been true from creation and harder in this age. The whole world is accepting ways that are an abomination to our Creator. We need God’s spiritual revelations and gifted strength to take on the responsibility of rearing children. Parents do insurmountable harm to their children’s imaginations, teaching, “Santa, Easter Bunnies, imaginary ghosts and Halloween.” These and many more customs play into Satan’s deceptions. Religious song lyrics, images and paintings shape children’s outlook and concept of God. All play into Satan’s indoctrinating purpose. Jesus’ apostle Paul’s instructions to the Corinthians applies to all ages.

      (2Corinthians 6:14-18; “Do not become partners with those who do not believe, for what partnership is there between righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship does light have with darkness? And what agreement does Christ have with Beliar? Or what does a Believer share in common with an unbeliever? And what mutual agreement does the temple of God have with idols? For we “Believers IN” are the temple of the living God, just as God said, “I will live in them and will walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be My people.” Therefore “come out from their midst, and be separate,” says the Lord, “and touch no unclean thing, and I will welcome you, and I will be a father to you, and you will be My sons and daughters,” says the All-Powerful Lord.”) (Paul’s teaching come from revelation, inspiration and from his gifted understanding of Leviticus 26:12, Jeremiah 32:38, Ezekiel 37:27 and Isaiah 52:11)

      Believers IN are spirit led to understand “denominations choosing their own doctrines” is not God’s Way. Identifying religious leaders for what they are is important, “because they’re of this world’s system of things.” Some pattern their hierarchical image by what they imagine a priest in Moses’ day looked like. Others think it enough that their hierarchy, wear their collar backward or dress in customary business attire. Jesus and His apostles did none of these; “thus Jesus was able to escape in crowds of people.”

      A onetime read through the Holy Scriptures teaches any thinking individual that the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, prophets and Jesus’ apostles did not identify with modern religious thinking. The true concept is that Jesus’ New Covenant foundation is based on His Old Covenant principals. These principles seem to escape modern thinking.

      Believers IN are led to understand; “Jesus was first preached by His apostles from their personal witness, gifted understanding of Old Covenant scriptures and revelation. Believers IN are lead to discern the balance between Old and New Covenants from God’s point of view. Let us compare Jesus’ inspired Words in Matthew, John and Hebrews.

      (Matt 5:17-20; “Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets. I have not come to abolish these things but to fulfill them. I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth pass away not the smallest letter or stroke of a letter will pass from the law until everything takes place. So anyone who breaks one of the least of these commands and teaches others to do so will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever obeys them and teaches others to do so will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I tell you, unless your righteousness goes beyond that of the experts in the law and the Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.”)

     What is the law from God‘s point of view? The ten commandments. The law is magnified spiritually when “the spirit of truth” is put in people. The first four teach people how to show love to God. The last six, teach how to show love to our neighbor. God’s first commandment is; “You shall have no other God before Me.”

       Through God’s gifted “spirit of truth” we know daily review and memorizing cannot change our nature, “our inner being.” Israelites nor professing Christians can impute God’s “spirit of truth” to a fleshly heart. But God can change people’s nature by a rebirth from above. He can put a love of His Way within a changed nature! The Hebrews writer explains.

      (Hebrews 8:7-13; “For if that first covenant had been faultless, no one would have looked for a second one. But showing its fault, God says to them, “Look, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will complete a New Covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah. “It will not be like the covenant that I made with their fathers, on the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of Egypt, because they did not continue in My covenant and I had no regard for them, says the Lord. (10) “For this is the covenant that I will establish with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord. I will put My laws in their minds and I will inscribe them on their hearts. And I will be their God and they will be My people. “And there will be no need at all for each one to ask his countryman or each one to ask his brother saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ since they will all know Me, from the least to the greatest.(12) “For I will be merciful toward their evil deeds, and their sins I will remember no longer.”) (This prophecy is twofold, for called out people in this age and the age to come.) When He gives a New Covenant, He makes the first obsolete. Now what is growing obsolete and aging is about to disappear.”)

       God doesn’t change. His Ways don’t change. From the foundation of the world, “His laws were based on LOVE.” (His definition of love is” “God is Love.”) The Old Covenant is only made obsolete to Believers IN. The Old is only made obsolete by God, when He, “puts His laws in our minds and inscribing them in our hearts!” Fleshly minded people are under the law,”it’s their Schoolmaster.” Thus, the seriousness of people teaching others to disregard God’s law.
