The Gospel, chapter 10

To: “In Resident Churches of God, all Saints” grace and peace from our God. 10/16/18, God‘s 8th month, Chestven 7, 5779 until sunset.

       Some denominational theologians give much attention to accurately pronouncing God’s name. Judean’s and Jehovah Witnesses particularly. Jesus inspired Isaiah to write, (Isa 42:8; I am the Lord! That is My name!

I will not share My glory with anyone else, or the praise due Me with idols.)

(Isa 52:6; For this reason My people will know My name, for this reason they will know at that time that I am the One who says, ‘Here I am.’”) In English “The I AM” “I AM LORD” “I AM GOD” or “I AM HE” is accurate when thinking in terms of Israel, Creator, Re-Creator, Deliverer and Savior.”

      Ezek 39:7-8; “‘I will make My holy name known in the midst of My people Israel; I will not let My holy name be profaned anymore. Then the nations will know that I am the Lord, the Holy One of Israel. Realize that it is coming and it will be done, declares the Sovereign Lord. It is the day I have spoken about.”)

       Believers IN, “followers of Jesus” are heirs with Abraham for salvation. In prayer, to think, “God of Abraham” is accurate, Jesus made him friend. (see Galatians 3:29)

       Jesus said; “You are My friends, if you do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you NOT servants; for the servant knows not what his Lord does: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of My Father I have MADE known unto you.” John 15:15)

       Not only are genuine Christians Jesus’ friends; we’re NOT friends with this world’s system of things. Our Lord’s brother James taught it.

       (“You adulterers and adulteresses, know you not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.” James 4:4)

      Obedience to Jesus is by Believing IN Him, “as in practicing His Way and considering His Ways superior to what may seem right to our human minds.”

       (Hebrews 2:1-4; “Therefore we “Christians” must pay closer attention to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away. For if the message spoken through angels proved to be so firm that every violation or disobedience received its just penalty, how will we escape if we neglect such a great salvation? It was first communicated through the Lord and was confirmed to us by those who heard Him, while God confirmed their witness with signs and wonders and various miracles and gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to His will.”)

       God is allowing the whole world to be subjected to Satan and fleshly inherited thinking. thus unbelieving people live the way that seems right. God knew the outcome, the divisions and how the fleshly mind would play into Satan’s hand. God knew Satan would attempt to bring about a semblance of world peace while turning the world from God’s truth.

      The first Believers IN Jesus practiced His Judeo Christian Way of love and His apostles were led to teach the spiritual magnification of the law. As prophesied, there have always been some scattered true Believers IN. These have always been hated, “as was Jesus” and persecuted by main stream. During the apostles times, many persecutions were publicized. Jesus’ brother, “Jude” wrote in his short letter, that the apostate was already prevalent. Counterfeit churches have grown speedily from before 100AD to present. Organized apostate persecuted, killing true Believers and causing many to go underground. We’ll get Paul’s overview of this in Hebrew chapter 11:. Counterfeit churches refer to Believers IN as heretics, because they believed in God the Father, God the Son and refused to be submissive.

      (Hebrews 2:5-9; “For God “the Father” did not put the world to come, about which we are speaking, under the control of angels. But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that You are mindful of him? or the Son of Man, that You visit Him? You made Him “Jesus” a little lower than the angels; You crowned Him “Jesus” with glory and honor, and did set Him over the works of Your hands: You “God the Father” have put all things in subjection under His “Jesus” feet. For in that He put all in subjection under Him, “Jesus” He left nothing that is not put under Him, “Jesus.” But now we see not yet all things put under Him. (9) But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels FOR the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor; that He, “Jesus” by the grace of God should taste death for every man.”)

       Flesh and blood people are made a little lower than angels! In the flesh, Jesus was a little lower than angels to taste death for every man. Our Creator can take charge of any situation at any time, but is now about the business of allowing unbelieving mankind follow the way of confusion, which will become more chaotic as the end unfolds.

      Before Jesus was revealed individually, we lived “practiced” according to what seemed right to our inherited fleshly minds. We’re led to shun old practices. Paul explains to Christians.

       (Ephesians 2:2-9; “Wherein in time past you, “who were once unbelievers” walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, “Satan” the spirit that now works in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we ALL had our conduct in times past in the LUST of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by NATURE the children of wrath, even as others. But God, who is rich in mercy, for His great love wherewith He loved us, Even when we were DEAD in sins, has quickened us together with Christ, (by grace you are saved;) And HAS raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: That in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”)

       The Author of confusion is in this world, “not of God, but by permission of God. (1 Cor 14:33; “For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the Saints.”)

      (Hebrews 2:10; “For it became Him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons “people” unto glory, to make the Captain of their salvation “Jesus” perfect through sufferings.”) “Many people into glory” define His Saints.

      (Hebrews 2:11-12; “For both He that sanctifies and they who are sanctified are all OF ONE: for which cause He is not ashamed to call them brethren, Saying, I will declare Your name unto My brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto You.”) Sanctified brethren are “at one” with one another and Jesus.

      (Hebrews 2:13-16; “And again, I “Jesus” will put My trust in Him “My Father“. And again, Behold I “Jesus” and the children which God HAS GIVEN Me. Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He “Jesus” also Himself likewise took part of the same; that through DEATH He might destroy him “Satan” that had the power of death, that is, the devil; (15) And deliver them “Christians” who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. For verily He “Jesus” took NOT on Him the NATURE of angels; but He took on Him the SEED of Abraham.”) Jesus said; “ God the Father did the calling.”

       (John 6:37-40; “All that the Father GIVES Me shall come to Me; and him that comes to Me I will in no wise cast out. For I came down from heaven, NOT to do MY own will, but the will of HIM that sent Me. And this is the Father’s will which has sent Me, that of all which He has GIVEN Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it “themup again at the last day. And this is the will of Him that sent Me, that every one which SEES the Son, and believes ON Him, may have EVERLASTING LIFE: and I will raise him up at the LAST DAY.’”)

      Believers IN are led to turn from, “repent for having lived in” error and thus make God’s Word center “in beliefs, thoughts and deeds.” (Meditating on God’s Word is purifying.)
