Perpetual Promises, chapter 5

Wednesday, October 30th, 2019

10/30/19, God’s 8th month, Cheshvan 1/5780.  

To: A a called out people living by faith, promises and expectations; in the world but not of the world.

Through the power of God’s gifted Holy Spirit of truth, His love and attributes are imputed to it’s recipients. He can shape individuals as He does nations. He gifts His chosen with a desire to develop Godly attributes, through God the Son ’Jesus’ and “speaks of how, for His purpose to Jeremiah.” This after Israel had broken their covenant promises.

(Jeremiah 18:1-14; The Lord said to Jeremiah: “Go down at once to the potter’s house. I will speak to you further there.” So I went down to the potter’s house and found him working at his wheel. Now and then there would be something wrong with the pot he was molding from the clay with his hands. So he would rework the clay into another kind of pot as he saw fit. (5) Then the LORD said to me, “I, the LORD, say: ‘O nation of Israel, can I not deal with you as this potter deals with the clay? In My hands, you, O nation of Israel, are just like the clay in this potter’s hand.’)

He explains how He uproots and tears down nations. So tell the people of Judah and the citizens of Jerusalem this: The LORD says, ‘I am preparing to bring disaster on you! I am making plans to punish you. So, every one of you, stop the evil things you have been doing. Correct the way you have been living and do what is right.’ But they just keep saying, ‘We do not care what You say! We will do whatever we want to do! We will continue to behave wickedly and stubbornly!’”

(13-4; Therefore, the LORD says, “Ask the people of other nations whether they have heard of anything like this. Israel should have been like a virgin. But she has done something utterly revolting! Does the snow ever completely vanish from the rocky slopes of Lebanon? Do the cool waters from those distant mountains ever cease to flow?)

(Jer 18:15-17; But My people have forgotten Me and offered sacrifices to worthless idols! This makes them stumble along in the way they live and leave the old reliable path of their fathers. They have left them to walk in bypaths, in roads that are not smooth and level. So their land will become an object of horror. People will forever hiss out their scorn over it. All who pass that way will be filled with horror and will shake their heads in derision. I will scatter them before their enemies like dust blowing in front of a burning east wind. I will turn my back on them and not look favorably on them when disaster strikes them.”) (The rest of Jeremiah 18: is about him asking God to punish his enemies.)

Generally speaking, physical Israel was never gifted with a spiritual desire to obey, ‘as are people called out and gifted with God’s Holy Spirit of truth through Jesus as are spiritual Israelites.’ Creator Jesus’ shedding His blood for the remission of sins was always the plan for adding to the God family. Shaping people to His spiritual likeness was God’s ultimate plan when creating Adam. Jesus’ followers are being shaped to His likeness. To become holy as He was and Is. To be filled with knowledge grace and mercy. Jesus is; ‘supreme, glorious, divine, sovereign and with God the Father.’

(Gen 1:26; “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.”)

God created the human physical body in His image looking forward to ‘ultimately making the way for their being in His likeness spiritually.’(It’s the gifted mystery, the belief IN through Jesus’ faith “not obtainable in this age to people who aren’t Jesus’ Sheep.) (Jesus’ Sheep are those whose names are written in “the Book of the Lamb.”)

Prophecy was gifted to Daniel and recorded for our understanding ‘that a time of atonement ‘at one ment’ and judgment was coming.’

(Daniel 7:9-10; While I “Daniel” was watching, thrones were set up, and the Ancient of Days  “One who had been living for ever, the Eternal God.” took His seat. His attire was white like snow; the hair of His head was like lamb’s wool. His throne was ablaze with fire and its wheels were all aflame.” (10) A river of fire was streaming forth, proceeding from His presence. Many thousands were ministering to Him; Many tens of thousands stood ready to serve Him. The court convened and the books were opened.”) Likewise David was given the same revelation as recorded in Genesis 1:

(Psalms 8:1-9; “O Lord, our Lord, how magnificent is your reputation throughout the earth! You reveal Your majesty in the heavens above! From the mouths of children and nursing babies You have ordained praise on account of Your adversaries, so that You might put an end to the vindictive enemy. (3) When I look up at the heavens, which Your fingers made, and see the moon and the stars, which You set in place, Of what importance is the human race, that You should notice them? Of what importance is mankind, that You should pay attention to them and make them a little less than the heavenly beings? You grant mankind honor and majesty; You appoint them to rule over Your creation; You have placed everything under their authority, including all the sheep and cattle, as well as the wild animals, the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea and everything that moves through the currents of the seas. O Lord, our Lord, how magnificent is Your reputation throughout the earth!”)

(Through Jesus’ revelations and teachings His chosen are growing in His likeness, ’the likeness of God.’) Revealed to Isaiah too.

Isaiah 40:12-14; “Who has measured out the waters in the hollow of His hand, or carefully measured the sky, or carefully weighed the soil of the earth, or weighed the mountains in a balance, or the hills on scales? Who comprehends the mind of the Lord, or gives Him instruction as His counselor? From whom does He receive directions? Who teaches Him the correct way to do things, or imparts knowledge to Him, or instructs Him in skillful design?

(40:15-18; “Look, the nations are like a drop in a bucket; they are regarded as dust on the scales. He lifts the coastlands as if they were dust. Not even Lebanon could supply enough firewood for a sacrifice; its wild animals would not provide enough burnt offerings. All the nations are insignificant before Him; they are regarded as absolutely nothing. To whom can you compare God? To what image can you liken Him?)

(40:19-20; “A craftsman casts an idol; a metal smith overlays it with gold and forges silver chains for it. To make a contribution one selects wood that will not rot; he then seeks a skilled craftsman to make an idol that will not fall over.)

(40:21-24; “Do you not know? Do you not hear? Has it not been told to you since the very beginning? Have you not understood from the time the earth’s foundations were made? He is the One who sits on the earth’s horizon; its inhabitants are like grasshoppers before Him. He is the One who stretches out the sky like a thin curtain, and spreads it out like a pitched tent. He is the One who reduces rulers to nothing; He makes the earth’s leaders insignificant. Indeed, they are barely planted; yes, they are barely sown; yes, they barely take root in the earth, and then He blows on them, causing them to dry up, and the wind carries them away like straw.”)

(40:25-26; “To whom can you compare Me? Whom do I resemble?” says the Holy One. Look up at the sky! Who created all these heavenly lights? He is the One who leads out their ranks; He calls them all by name. Because of His absolute power and awesome strength, not one of them is missing.”)

Jacob - Israel is God’s concern.

(40:27-29; “Why do you say, Jacob, Why do you say, Israel, “The Lord is not aware of what is happening to me, My God is not concerned with my vindication”? Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is an eternal God, the creator of the whole earth. He does not get tired or weary; there is no limit to His wisdom. He gives strength to those who are tired; to the ones who lack power, He gives renewed energy. Even youths get tired and weary; even strong young men clumsily stumble. But those who wait for the Lord’s help find renewed strength; they rise up as if they had eagles’ wings, they run without growing weary, they walk without getting tired.”)

The lesson? Look to our Creator, wait on revelation rather than seek a denomination that fits the comfort zone of this world’s system of things. God went on to reveal and Isaiah recorded that God’s mercy is reliable.

(Isaiah 57:15-16; “For this is what the high and exalted One says, the One who rules forever, whose name is holy: “I dwell in an exalted and holy place, but also with the discouraged and humiliated, in order to cheer up the humiliated and to encourage the discouraged. (16) For I will not be hostile forever or perpetually angry, for then man’s spirit would grow faint before Me, the life-giving breath I created.”

(57:17-19; “I was angry because of their ‘Israel’s’ sinful greed; I attacked them and angrily rejected them, yet they remained disobedient and stubborn. I have seen their behavior, but I will heal them and give them rest, and I will once again console those who mourn. I am the One who gives them reason to celebrate. Complete prosperity is available both to those who are far away and those who are nearby says the Lord, “and I will heal them.”)

What a future in store that’s not of mankind’s doing, but in spite of. The Psalmist has more to reveal.

Psalms 19:1-7; “The heavens declare the glory of God; the sky displays His handiwork. Day after day it speaks out; night after night it reveals His greatness. There is no actual speech or word, nor is its voice literally heard. Yet its voice echoes throughout the earth; its words carry to the distant horizon. In the sky He has pitched a tent for the sun. (5) Like a bridegroom it emerges from its chamber; like a strong man it enjoys running its course. It emerges from the distant horizon, and goes from one end of the sky to the other; nothing can escape its heat. (7) The law of the Lord is perfect and preserves one’s life.”)

The rules set down by the Lord are reliable and impart wisdom to the inexperienced.” May we realize our fragility and rid ourselves of arrogant vanity. May Satan’s purpose be revealed and may we despise his deceitful ways. Now we plan to take notice that Jesus revealed the same to John that He revealed to Daniel and Isaiah next time.

Perpetual Promises, chapter 4

Perpetual promises, chapter 4  10/2819, God’s 7/28/5780.   20,746

To: A called out people living by faith, promises and expectations; in the world but not of the world.

Just thinking out loud. Generation has various meanings, depending on the subject. Regarding time in people’s life in this age, is considered 35 to 40 years. God seems to define a generation as about the same. (Num 32:13; So the Lord’s anger was kindled against the Israelites, and He made them wander in the wilderness for forty years, until all that generation that had done wickedly before the LORD was finished.) (Deu 2:14;  Now the length of time it took for us to go from Kadesh Barnea to the crossing of Wadi Zered was thirty-eight years, time for all the military men of that generation to die, just as the LORD had vowed to them.”) From Abraham to Christ is 42 generations or about 1,680 years. We’re about 12 of 14 generations since Adam according to Judaism’s calendar.

(John 8:31-32; “Then Jesus said to those Judeans who had believed Him, “If you continue to follow My teaching, you are really My disciples and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”)

Recognizing truth after hearing or reading it causes some to credit their intellect, but the truth is, “Truth found them.” Be reserved about understanding. The Truth “Jesus” does set us free: but know, practicing Truth can bring on persecutions.

(John 14:6-7; Jesus replied, “I am the Way, and the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. If you have known Me, you will know My Father too. And from now on you do know Him and have seen Him.”

(John 15:18-19; If the world hates you, be aware that it hated Me first. If you belonged to the world, the world would love you as its own. However, because you do not belong to the world, but I chose you out of the world, for this reason the world hates you.”)

(God’s characteristics are revealed and His spirit imputed to His chosen. His attributes are revealed through the prophets, Jesus and His apostles.

(Proverbs 1:1-4 “The Proverbs of Solomon son of David, king of Israel: To learn wisdom and moral instruction, and to discern wise counsel. To receive moral instruction in skillful living, in righteousness, justice, and equity. To impart shrewdness to the morally naive, and a discerning plan to the young person.”)

(Prov 22:18-19; “For it is pleasing if you keep these sayings within you, and they are ready on your lips. So that your confidence may be in the Lord, I am making them known to you today – even you.”)

(1Cor 14:37-40; “If anyone considers himself a prophet or spiritual person, he should acknowledge that what I ’Paul” write to you is the Lord’s command. If someone does not recognize this, He is not recognized. So then, brothers and sisters, be eager to prophesy “teach” and do not forbid anyone from speaking in tongues “other languages.” And do everything in a decent and orderly manner.”)

Cornerstone “Jesus” inspired Paul to write about the resurrection.

(1Corinthians 15:12-19; “Now if Christ is being preached as raised from the dead, how can some of you say there is no resurrection of the dead? But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is futile and your faith is empty. Also, we are found to be false witnesses about God, because we have testified against God that He raised Christ from the dead, when in reality He did not raise Him, if indeed the dead are not raised. For if the dead are not raised, then not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is useless; you are still in your sins. Furthermore, those who have fallen asleep in Christ have also perished. For if only in this life we have hope in Christ, we should be pitied more than anyone.”)

Jesus’ good news ‘gospel’ is about His return, His kingdom’s establishment, spiritual and physical resurrections. (See Ezekiel 37: regarding physical.)

(1Cor 15:20-23; “But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep ‘in Christ.’ For since death came through a man, ’Adam’ the resurrection of the dead also came through a man ’Jesus.’ (22) For just as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive. But each in his own order: Christ, the firstfruits; then when Christ comes, those who belong to Him.”) (Other in their own order are to be resurrected to a physical life as was Lazarus, others and we have this example.: (Matt 27:50-54; “Jesus cried out again with a loud voice and gave up his spirit. Just then the temple curtain was torn in two, from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks were split apart. And tombs were opened, and the bodies of many saints who had died were raised. (They came out of the tombs after His resurrection and went into the holy city and appeared to many people.) Now when the centurion and those with him who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and what took place, they were extremely terrified and said, “Truly this one was God’s Son!”)

Jesus’ resurrection prophecy through Paul next jumps

forward to New Jerusalem’s coming down.

(1Cor 15:24-28; “Then comes the end, (age end) when He ’Jesus’ hands over the kingdom to God the Father, when He has brought to an end all rule and all authority and power. For He ’Jesus’ must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet. The last enemy to be eliminated is death. (27) For He ’God the Father’ has put everything in subjection under His ’Jesus’ feet. But when it says “everything” has been put in subjection, it is clear that this does not include the One ‘God the Father’ who put everything in subjection to Him ‘Jesus.’ And when all things are subjected to Him ‘God the Father’ then the Son Himself will be subjected to the One who subjected everything to Him, so that God may be all in all.” (Study the whole, for our purpose here skip to verse 42.)

From perishable flesh to imperishable spirit.

(1Corinthians 15:42-49; “It is the same with the resurrection of the dead. What is sown is perishable, is raised is imperishable. It is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body. (45) So also it is written, “The first man, Adam, became a living person”; (Living soul” quote from 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.” The Hebrew term is נֶפֶשׁ (nefesh, “being” is often translated “soul,” but the word refers to the whole person.)

the last Adam became a life-giving spirit. However, the spiritual did not come first, but the natural, and then the spiritual. The first man ’Adam’ is from the earth, made of dust; the second man ‘Jesus’ is from heaven. (48) Like the one made of dust, so too are those made of dust, and like the one from heaven, so too those who are heavenly. And just as we have borne the image of the man of dust, let us also bear the image of the man of heaven.”)

God’s ultimate purpose, His spiritual family.

The fourth annual Sabbath ‘Trumpets’ looks forward to this.

(1Corinthians.15:50-58; “Now this is what I am saying, brothers and sisters: Flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. Listen, I will tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed – in a moment, in the blinking of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality. Now when this perishable puts on the imperishable, and this mortal puts on immortality, then the saying that is written will happen, “Death has been swallowed up in victory.” “Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?” (Paul was quoting from Isaiah 25:8 and Hosea 13:14)

(56-58; The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ! So then, dear brothers and sisters, be firm. Do not be moved! Always be outstanding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.”)

To the Philippi church and all Believers IN Paul added.

(Phil 3:20-21; But our citizenship is in heaven – and we also await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform these humble bodies of ours into the likeness of His glorious body by means of that power by which He is able to subject all things to Himself.”) (God’s creating includes His forming the human spirit and converted it to one like His own.)

(Zach 12:1 The revelation of the word of the Lord concerning Israel: The Lord – He who stretches out the heavens and lays the foundations of the earth, who forms the human spirit within a person.”)

Jesus made a blood sacrifice covenant once for all. Passover and animal blood sacrifices looked forward to Jesus sacrificing His life blood for the sins of the world.

(Hebrews 9:25-28; “And Jesus did not enter to offer Himself again and again, the way the high priest enters the sanctuary year after year with blood that is not his own, for then He ’Jesus” would have had to suffer again and again since the foundation of the world. But now He has appeared once for all at the consummation of the ages to put away sin by His sacrifice. And just as people are appointed to die once, and then to face judgment, so also, after Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many, to those who eagerly await Him He will appear a second time, not to bear sin but to bring salvation.”)

As promised Adam and Eve for disobedience, “all people are appointed to die once, then face judgment.” Jesus revealed more to John and we Believers.

Rev 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 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.”)

Remember Paul’s words at 1Corinthians 15:22; “For just as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive. But each in his own order: Christ, the firstfruits; then when Christ comes, those who belong to Him.” (Who will die a second death?)

Believers knowing Jesus’ message regarding immortality and His seven annual Sabbath foreshadowing’s can bring spiritual understanding forward. God’s covenant promises through Abraham, Isaac and Israel are eternal and Jesus’ gifted faith is ours.

New Jerusalem is God’s beacon “an eternal source of inspiration.” Its twelve gates named for the twelve tribes of Israel and its twelve foundations for the twelve apostles of the Lamb. What an awesome contemplation to meditate on, knowing Satan and his followers will then be no more.

New Jerusalem for those whose names are written

in the Lamb’s Book of Life.

(Revelations 21:22-27; “Now I saw no temple in the city, because the Lord God – the All-Powerful – and the Lamb are its temple. The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, because the glory of God lights it up, and its lamp is the Lamb. The nations will walk by its light and the kings of the earth will bring their grandeur into it. Its gates will never be closed during the day (and there will be no night there).(26) They ’the nations’ will bring the grandeur and the wealth of the nations into it, but nothing ritually unclean will ever enter into it, nor anyone who does what is detestable or practices falsehood, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life.”)

Perpetual Promises, chapter 3

Saturday, October 26th, 2019

To: A called out people living by faith, promises and expectations; in the world but not of the world.

God’s planning include numbers indicating completion, such as the number three, seven, forty nine etc. Number six and it’s multiples indicates judgment. God set aside three holy seasons with seven annual Sabbaths

for His set aside people; (1) Passover season. Trusting in Jesus’ shed blood for the remission of sin, faith and turning from dead works.) (2) Pentecost. Gifting His Holy Spirit of Truth, ’born again’ ‘Fathering’ that makes a person atOne with God.) (3) Feast of Tabernacles Season. A holy festival looking forward to Jesus’ rule on earth, acknowledging our temporary tabernacle, faith in our living eternally and literally being atOne with God. The eighth day is the seventh of seven annual Sabbaths foreshadowing judgment, New Jerusalem and God the Father’s coming down. Additionally, God purposely counts generation to generation and it’s isn’t coincidental.

(Matthew 1:17-1:17; “So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations, and from David to the deportation to Babylon, fourteen generations, and from the deportation to Babylon to Christ, fourteen generations.”)

Our Re-Creator, Creator, Deliverer, Sustainer, Mediator and coming King of Kings “Jesus’” coming in human form, being rejected by His chosen people, dealing with Satan and choosing His apostles individually was known in advance. Jesus’ characteristics didn’t alter from the time when He delivered Israel form bondage through Moses, to His fleshly dealings with Satan. His dealing with Satan is our example; as He’d have us mimic.

(Matt 4:4; “But He “Jesus” answered, “It is written, ‘Man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” a quote from Deut 8:3) Each temptation was answered with a previous scripture.

Jesus had Moses write to the Israelites.

(Deut 8:2-3; “Remember the whole way by which He has brought you these forty years through the desert so that He might, by humbling you, test you to see if you have it within you to keep His commandments or not. So He humbled you by making you hungry and then feeding you with unfamiliar manna. He did this to teach you that humankind cannot live by bread alone, but also by everything that comes from the Lord’s mouth.”)

We should question ourselves, “am I gifted to believe IN Jesus?” Has this world’s education system sold me on the theory of evolution, or that God’s isn’t absolute?” Am I so vain or arrogant that I trust my inherited from Adam intellect ‘rather than God’s Word?’ Do we trust Paul’s inspired teaching he received from Jesus? To set aside people gifted to Believe IN Jesus, Paul instructed Timothy to teach.

(2Tim 1:1:7-14; “For God did not give us a Spirit of fear ’nor stupor’ but of power and love and self-control. So do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord or of me, a prisoner for His sake, but by God’s power accept your share of suffering for the gospel. (9) He is the One who saved us and called us with a holy calling, not based on our works, but on His own purpose and grace, granted to us in Christ Jesus before time began, but now made visible through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus. He has broken the power of death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel! For this gospel I “Paul” was appointed a preacher and apostle and teacher. Because of this, in fact, I suffer as I do. But I am not ashamed, because I know the One in whom my faith is set and I am convinced that He is able to protect what has been entrusted to me until that day. (13) Hold to the standard of sound words that you heard from me and do so with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. Protect that good thing entrusted to you, through the Holy Spirit who lives within us.”)

Creator Jesus spoke or had His angel speak to Moses from a burning bush. Spoke directly to Abraham, wrestled and made promises to Jacob. Jesus is revealed in various ways and inspired John’s Words at ‘John 1:1-5’ Paul’s Words at ‘Colossians 1:15-20’ ‘Hebrews 1’ and inspired Paul’s Words to Timothy as recorded above.

Jesus’ good news includes the fact that we may suffer ‘for our being called to Believe IN.’ Remember we’re called for His own purpose and by grace granted in Himself before time began, now made visible through His appearing to bring life, immortality and understanding. Teaching that immortality is only through Himself. These are His sound words to believe IN.

Jesus’ followers are gifted to understand the love imparted by Him “our Creator who sacrificed Himself for the sins of people He created? We should, “know too, our understanding is gifted.” No spiritual understanding comes from one’s own intellect. The Psalmist was gifted to understand and write.

Psalms 12:6-8; “The Lord’s words are absolutely reliable. They are as untainted as silver purified in a furnace on the ground, where it is thoroughly refined. (7) You, Lord, will protect them; You will continually shelter each one from these evil people, for the wicked seem to be everywhere, when people promote evil.”)

Psalms 19:7-11; “The law of the Lord is perfect and preserves one’s life. The rules set down by the Lord are reliable and impart wisdom to the inexperienced. The Lord’s precepts are fair and make one joyful. The Lord’s commands are pure and give insight for life. The commands to fear the Lord are right and endure forever. The judgments given by the Lord are trustworthy and absolutely just. (10) They are of greater value than gold, than even a great amount of pure gold; they bring greater delight than honey, than even the sweetest honey from a honeycomb. Yes, Your servant finds moral guidance there; those who obey them receive a rich reward.”)

Truth sets us free and there’s only one truth. Jesus inspired His apostle Paul to share the following words to gifted Believers IN.

Gal 1:8-12; “But even if we “apostles” (or an angel from heaven) should preach a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be condemned to hell (“The word hell here means “accursed” or “let him be accursed” it’s the Greek word; (νάθεμα, anaqema) the translation gives the outcome which is implied by this dreadful curse.) As we ’apostles’ have said before, and now I say again, if anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to what you received, let him be condemned to hell! Am I now trying to gain the approval of people, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a slave of Christ! (11) Now I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that the gospel I preached is not of human origin. For I did not receive it or learn it from any human source; instead I received it by a revelation of Jesus Christ.”)

Likewise, each believer IN’S calling and spiritual understanding is gifted. If we aren’t grasping all these things fully, prayerfully wait and trust His revelations. Don’t put trust people who depended on theology schooling.

Jesus apostles ask Him, “Why do you speak to them in parables?” He replied, “You ’disciples’ have been given the opportunity to know the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, but they have not.”) Jesus was quoting what He’d revealed to Isaiah many years before. (See Isa 6:9-10)

Likewise Jesus explained why the many didn’t understand. Let’s review.

(John 10:26-30; “But you refuse to believe because you are not My sheep. My sheep listen to My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish; no one will snatch them from My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all, and no one can snatch them from My Father’s hand. The Father and I are One.”) Meaning; ‘God the Father and God the Son are One in purpose.’

God’s awesomeness is much greater than human intellect’s ability to comprehend. His future planning for His family and kingdom has no end. His way is to choose and give understanding to whom He will. His purpose for creating humankind is to add family. Jesus shared these things with His prophets, apostles and Saints.

Isaiah 28:9-11; Who is the Lord trying to teach? To whom is He explaining a message? Those just weaned from milk? Those just taken from their mother’s breast? Indeed, they will hear meaningless gibberish, senseless babbling, a syllable here, a syllable there. (11) For with mocking lips and a foreign tongue He will speak to these people.”

Why? Was it all by promised grace before the flood? Study carefully.

(Isa 28:12-18; In the past He said to them, “This is where security can be found. Provide security for the one who is exhausted! This is where rest can be found.” But they refused to listen. So the Lord’s word to them will sound like meaningless gibberish, senseless babbling, a syllable here, a syllable there. As a result, they will fall on their backsides when they try to walk, and be injured, ensnared, and captured. (14) Therefore, listen to the Lord’s word, you who mock, you rulers of these people who reside in Jerusalem! For you say, “We have made a treaty with death, with Sheol ’underworld’ we have made an agreement. When the overwhelming judgment sweeps by it will not reach us. For we have made a lie our refuge, we have hidden ourselves in a deceitful word.” Therefore, this is what the sovereign master, the Lord, says: “Look, I am laying a Stone in Zion, an approved Stone, set in place as a precious Cornerstone for the foundation. The one who maintains His faith will not panic. I will make justice the measuring line, fairness the plumb line; hail will sweep away the unreliable refuge, the floodwaters will overwhelm the hiding place. Your treaty with death will be dissolved; your agreement with Sheol will not last. When the overwhelming judgment sweeps by, you will be overrun by it.”) As always, study the whole text.

Is such arrogance why Paul shared the result of disobedience

and Jesus shared the reason He spoke to the populations in parables?

Let‘s review. (Romans 1:18-20; “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of people who suppress the truth by their unrighteousness, because what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes – His eternal power and divine nature – have been clearly seen, because they are understood through what has been made. So people are without excuse. (21-23; “For although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God or give Him thanks, but they became futile in their thoughts and their senseless hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for an image resembling mortal human beings or birds or four-footed animals or reptiles.”

The reason people and denominations are confused today?

(Rom 1:24-25; “Therefore God gave them over in the desires of their hearts to impurity, to dishonor their bodies among themselves. They exchanged the truth of God for a lie and worshiped and served the creation rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.”

Perpetual Promises, chapter 2

Friday, October 25th, 2019

To: A called out people living by faith, promises and expectations; in the world but not of the world.  

It’s true, in this latter age particularly, ‘all but God’s Elect are deceived.’ God allows Satan to be the god of this age and gives people stupor of mind because of their hard hearts. It’s why religious denominations can’t fathom God being ‘the all knowing.’ One who knows the details of His planning. Jesus said; ”For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the Elect. Matt 24:24) God’s Elect are a predestined, ‘saved by promised grace people.’ Primarily Jacob’s descendent and more particularly heirs with Abraham. Our all knowing God said, “as I’ve planned, so it’ll be.“

Isaiah 2:12-24; “Indeed, the LORD who commands armies has planned a day of judgment, for all the high and mighty, for all who are proud — they will be humiliated; But when the sovereign master finishes judging Mount Zion and Jerusalem, then I will punish the king of Assyria for what he has proudly planned and for the arrogant attitude he displays. The LORD who commands armies makes this solemn vow: “Be sure of this: Just as I have intended, so it will be; just as I have planned, it will happen.)

So it is, God’s intentions for His people will be carried out. His plan for the arrogant will be carried out. People who aren’t called and gifted to understand in this age aren’t His Elect. Why? It was revealed to Paul and believers IN.

(Rom 1:18-20; For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of people who suppress the truth by their unrighteousness, because what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes — his eternal power and divine nature — have been clearly seen, because they’re understood through what’s been made. So people are without excuse.) (People preferred making images, looking to the celestial and in later times believing in the big bang or some other theory.)

(Rom 1:21-23; For although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God or give Him thanks, but they became futile in their thoughts and their senseless hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for an image resembling mortal human beings or birds or four-footed animals or reptiles.) (Study the whole.)

(Rom 1:26-42; For this reason God gave them over to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged the natural sexual relations for unnatural ones, and likewise the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed in their passions for one another. Men committed shameless acts with men and received in themselves the due penalty for their error. And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what should not be done. They are filled with every kind of unrighteousness, wickedness, covetousness, malice. They are rife with envy, murder, strife, deceit, hostility. They are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, contrivers of all sorts of evil, disobedient to parents, senseless, covenant-breakers, heartless, ruthless. Although they fully know God’s righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but also approve of those who practice them.) (The book of Romans is to non-Israelites and Israelites.)

Jesus made it clear ‘people not understanding His words weren’t suppose to at that particular time.” People who aren’t called to be Jesus’ followers in this latter age aren’t His sheep. (John 10:26; But you refuse to believe because you are not My sheep.)

Speaking of Himself as being the bread of Life, Jesus said; “This is the Bread that came down from heaven; it is not like the bread your ancestors ate, but then later died. The one who eats this Bread will live forever.” Jesus said these things while He was teaching in the synagogue in Capernaum. John 6:58-59)

(John 6:60-64; “Then many of His disciples, when they heard these things, said, “This is a difficult saying! Who can understand it?” When Jesus was aware that His disciples were complaining about this, He said to them, “Does this cause you to be offended? Then what if you see the Son of Man ascending where He was before? The spirit is the one who gives life; human nature is of no help! (Logic is no help.)The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life. (64) But there are some of you who do not believe.” (For Jesus had already known from the beginning who those were who did not believe, and who it was who would betray Him.)

(John 6:65- “So Jesus added, “Because of this I told you that no one can come to Me unless the Father has allowed him to come.” After this many of His disciples quit following Him and did not accompany Him any longer.”) (Many who think themselves God’s equal, think ‘this isn’t fair and assume there’s bound to be a method of works for salvation.)

John 6:67  So Jesus said to the twelve, “You don’t want to go away too, do you?” Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom would we go? You have the words of eternal life. We have come to believe and to know that you are the Holy One of God!” Jesus replied, “Didn’t I choose you, the twelve, and yet one of you is the devil?” (Now He said this about Judas son of Simon Iscariot, for Judas, one of the twelve, was going to betray him.)

Jesus said; (John 10:16; I have other sheep that do not come from this sheepfold. I must bring them too, and they will listen to My voice, so that there will be one flock and one shepherd.) (The spirits of many deceased Saints are now being perfected in spiritual Mt. Sinai and many will be called in the millennial age to come.

It‘s the new covenant

(See Heb 12:) Speaking of prayerful worship, Jesus says; (Heb 12:22-29; “But you ‘followers of Jesus’ have come to Mount Zion, the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to myriads of angels, to the assembly and congregation of the firstborn, who are enrolled in heaven, and to God, the judge of all, and to the spirits of the righteous, who have been made perfect, and to Jesus, the Mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks of something better than Abel’s does. Take care not to refuse the one who is speaking! For if they did not escape when they refused the one who warned them on earth, how much less shall we, if we reject the one who warns from heaven? Then His voice shook the earth, but now He has promised, “I will once more shake not only the earth but heaven too.” Now this phrase “once more” indicates the removal of what is shaken, that is, of created things, so that what is unshaken may remain. So since we are receiving an unshakable kingdom, let us give thanks, and through this let us offer worship pleasing to God in devotion and awe. For our God is indeed a devouring fire.”)

Israel’s and Christendom leaders in each age “feed themselves and make merchandise of people.

(Ezek 34:10; “This is what the sovereign LORD says: Look, I am against the shepherds, and I will demand My sheep from their hand. I will no longer let them be shepherds; the shepherds will not feed themselves anymore. I will rescue My sheep from their mouth, so that they will no longer be food for them.”)

The spiritual deliverance God is doing in this new covenant age differs from the physical deliverance He did through Moses, but patterned the same. Today, deliverance is individual, “a spiritual calling whereby God gives the desire to know Him and leads people to a turning ’repentance’ and a trust in Jesus’ faith. Paul explained to the gentile populations, a people likened to many of us.

(Ephesians 2:19-21; “So then you “gentiles” 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 “family” is 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.”)

Followers of Jesus are about the business of attempting to encourage people gifted with the desire to know God the Father, God the Son and practice His family characteristics. (Review Exodus 20: - 25:) Let’s heed Peter’s admonishments.

(2Peter 1:20-21; “Above all, you do well if you recognize this: No prophecy of scripture ever comes about by the prophet’s own imagination, for no prophecy was ever borne of human impulse; rather, men carried along by the Holy Spirit spoke from God.”)

God inspired Isaiah to write; (Isa 14:24; “The Lord who commands armies makes this solemn vow: “Be sure of this: Just as I have intended, so it will be; just as I have planned, it will happen.” We called to be Believers IN “know our Creator is in charge and all things are ultimately working for His purpose.”

Perpetual Promises, chapter 1

Thursday, October 24th, 2019

To: Spiritual Israelites, a called out people living on promises, expectations; “in the world but not of the world.”  

After the flood waters receded, Noah built an alter, sacrificed  clean animals and birds; God smelled the aroma, was pleased and made a promise.

(Gen 8:21; “I’ll never again curse the ground because of humankind, even though the inclination of their minds is evil from childhood on. I’ll never again destroy everything that lives, as I have just done. While the earth remains, seedtime, harvest, cold, heat, summer, winter, day and night shall not cease.”) Through Jeremiah the Lord gives more promises.

(Jer 33:25-26; “Thus says the LORD; If My covenant be not with day and night, and if I have not appointed the ordinances of heaven and earth; Just as surely as I have done this, so surely will I never reject the descendants of Jacob. Nor will I ever refuse to choose one of my servant David’s descendants to rule over the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Indeed, I will restore them and show mercy to them.”) Lets back up to verse 20 and note that the Lord God is speaking of His rule on earth and His concern for people in various states of bondage.

(Jer 33:20-23; The LORD spoke further to Jeremiah. “I, LORD, make the following promise: ‘I have made a covenant with the day and with the night that they will always come at their proper times. Only if you people could break that covenant could My covenant with My servant David and My covenant with the Levites ever be broken. So David will by all means always have a Descendant to occupy his throne as king and the Levites will by all means always have priests who will minister before Me. I will make the children who follow one another in the line of My servant David very numerous. I will also make the Levites who minister before Me very numerous. I will make them all as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sands which are on the seashore.’  The LORD spoke still further to Jeremiah. (All God’s children will eventually be as spiritual Israelites.)

(Jer 33:24; “You have surely noticed what these people are saying, haven’t you? They are saying, ‘The LORD has rejected the two families of Israel and Judah that He chose ’so they have little regard that My people will ever again be a nation.”)

The Lord God Jesus was sharing these things with Jeremiah after having made the decision to disperse Israel for their covenant breaking to Babylon. The whole world is today as Babylon.

Jer 34:1-2; “The LORD spoke to Jeremiah while King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon was attacking Jerusalem and the towns around it with a large army. This army consisted of troops from his own army and from the kingdoms and peoples of the lands under his dominion. The LORD God of Israel told Jeremiah to go and give King Zedekiah of Judah a message. He told Jeremiah to tell him, “The LORD says, ‘I am going to hand this city over to the king of Babylon and he will burn it down. (3) You yourself will not escape his clutches, but will certainly be captured and handed over to him. You must confront the king of Babylon face to face and answer to him personally. Then you must go to Babylon.

(Jer 34:4-7; However, listen to what I, the LORD, promise you, King Zedekiah of Judah. I, the LORD, promise that you will not die in battle or be executed. You will die a peaceful death. They will burn incense at your burial just as they did at the burial of your ancestors, the former kings who preceded you. They will mourn for you, saying, “Poor, poor master!” Indeed, you have My own word on this. I, the LORD, affirm it!’ “The prophet Jeremiah told all this to King Zedekiah of Judah in Jerusalem. He did this while the army of the king of Babylon was attacking Jerusalem and the cities of Lachish and Azekah. He was attacking these cities because they were the only fortified cities of Judah which were still holding out.”

Permanent slavery was never condoned by God,

but a means for loving welfare.

(Jer 23:8-13; The LORD spoke to Jeremiah after King Zedekiah had made a covenant with all the people in Jerusalem to grant their slaves their freedom. Everyone was supposed to free their male and female Hebrew slaves. No one was supposed to keep a fellow Judean enslaved.” All the people and their leaders had agreed to this. They had agreed to free their male and female slaves and not keep them enslaved any longer. They originally complied with the covenant and freed them.”

(Jer 34:11-15; But later they had changed their minds. They had taken back their male and female slaves that they had freed and forced them to be slaves again. That was when the LORD spoke to Jeremiah, “The LORD God of Israel has a message for you. ‘I made a covenant with your ancestors when I brought them out of Egypt where they had been slaves. It stipulated, “Every seven years each of you must free any fellow Hebrews who have sold themselves to you. After they have served you for six years, you shall set them free.” But your ancestors did not obey Me or pay any attention to Me:. Recently, however, you yourselves showed a change of heart and did what is pleasing to Me. You granted your fellow countrymen their freedom and you made a covenant to that effect in My presence in the house that I have claimed for My own.”

(Jer 34:16-17; But then you turned right around and showed that you did not honor Me. Each of you took back your male and female slaves whom you had freed as they desired, and you forced them to be your slaves again. So I, the LORD, say: “You have not really obeyed Me and granted freedom to your neighbor and fellow countryman. Therefore, I will grant you freedom, the freedom to die in war, or by starvation or disease. I, the LORD, affirm it! I will make all the kingdoms of the earth horrified at what happens to you.”

(Jer 34:18-20; I will punish those people who have violated their covenant with Me. I will make them like the calf they cut in two and passed between its pieces. I will do so because they did not keep the terms of the covenant they made in My presence. I will punish the leaders of Judah and Jerusalem, the court officials, the priests, and all the other people of the land who passed between the pieces of the calf. I will hand them over to their enemies who want to kill them. Their dead bodies will become food for the birds and the wild animals.)

(Jer 34:21; I will also hand King Zedekiah of Judah and his officials over to their enemies who want to kill them. I will hand them over to the army of the king of Babylon, even though they have temporarily withdrawn from attacking you. For I, the LORD, affirm that I will soon give the order and bring them back to this city. They will fight against it and capture it and burn it down. I will also make the towns of Judah desolate so that there will be no one living in them.” ‘ “)

Egypt and Babylon represents sin’s bondage and has evolved to being this world’s system of things today. It’s demonic bureaucracy: people become merchandise, thus the need to exercise freedom and come out from among.

(Exodus 13:21-22; When the Lord God Jesus delivered Israel from Egypt He went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night: He took not away the pillar of the cloud by day, nor the pillar of fire by night, from before the people.”) Remember Jesus is The Light to the world.

(Neh_9:19; Yet You in Your manifold mercies forsake them not in the wilderness: the pillar of the cloud departed not from them by day, to lead them in the way; neither the pillar of fire by night, to show them light, and the way wherein they should go.”) (Review the attributes God expects His set aside people to develop and exercise toward neighbor, foreigner and enemies spelled out at Exodus 20: - 25:)

The Lord God Jesus was Israel’s dependency foundation: ‘it was said of King David’ “his delight was in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.” Psalms 1:2)

Believers IN are spiritually led to know, “the whole original Word of God is truth.” Truth sets people free. (See John 8:32) Truth is worthy of our contemplation, meditation, study, belief and practice. What went wrong? God gave Israelites and the world a stupor mentality because of disobedience. True to His characteristics, He has allowed Christendom, Evangelicals and all who trust their intellect; “stupor of mind because of their condoning unholy practices.”

Study Isaiah 51:20-23 and note the same principles are revealed to Jeremiah.

Jeremiah 13:12-14; “So tell them, ‘The Lord, the God of Israel, says, “Every wine jar is made to be filled with wine.”’ And they will probably say to you, ‘Do you not think we know that every wine jar is supposed to be filled with wine?’ (13) Then tell them, ‘The Lord says, “I will soon fill all the people who live in this land with stupor. I will also fill the kings from David’s dynasty, the priests, the prophets and the citizens of Jerusalem with stupor. And I will smash them like wine bottles against one another, children and parents alike. I will not show any pity, mercy, or compassion. Nothing will keep Me from destroying them, “says the Lord.”

(Jer 13:15-17; “Then I ‘Jeremiah’ said to the people of Judah, “Listen and pay attention! Do not be arrogant! For the Lord has spoken. Show the Lord your God the respect that is due Him. Do it before He brings the darkness of disaster. Do it before you stumble into distress like a traveler on the mountains at twilight. Do it before He turns the light of deliverance you hope for into the darkness and gloom of exile. But if you will not pay attention to this warning, I “Jeremiah” will weep alone because of your arrogant pride. I will weep bitterly and my eyes will overflow with tears because you, the Lord’s flock, will be carried into exile.”)

To this date Israel is scattered among demonic Babylon, but their deliverance is coming.

All people groups that use Jesus’ name and yet condone unholy life styles should take heed. Do we feel Jeremiah’s anguish in this age? All Jesus’ apostles and Paul particular, was inspired to teach in his letter to Timothy.

(2Timothy 3:16-17; “Every scripture is inspired by God and useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the person dedicated to God may be capable and equipped for every good work.”) So; how is it that people lose the capability God equips for good work? They yield to Satan who encourages “do what seems right to your intellectual training.” Satan is the scapegoat, his destructive Babylon type  confusion has the whole world in it’s bondage.

Universe, Earth and we’re for God’s purpose, chapter 20

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2019

10/22/19, God’s 7th month, Tishrei 22, 5,780 until sunset.

To: 20,543 subscribers and all who’re called to be atOne with God the Father, God the Son and Heirs with Abraham.

Today is the seventh of seven annual Sabbaths, foreshadowing judgment as revealed at Revelations 21:8.

Judaism’s not believing IN Jesus, is the reason they change God’s seventh month to their first. See Leviticus 23: God’s first annual Sabbath for His set aside people is the day after Passover, the fifteenth day of God’s first month. The world will use God’s calendar at some point after Jesus’ return and Israel will be delivered from the nations where they’re scattered. It’s the good news message ‘kingdom of God message’ Jesus first proclaimed through His prophets.

Jeremiah 46:27-28; “You descendents of Jacob, My servants, do not be afraid; do not be terrified, people of Israel. For I will rescue you and your descendents from the faraway lands where you are captives. The descendents of Jacob will return to their land and enjoy peace. They will be secure and no one will terrify them. I, the Lord, tell you not to be afraid, You descendents of Jacob, My servant, for I am with you. Though I completely destroy all the nations where I scatter you, I will not completely destroy you. I will indeed discipline you but only in due measure. I will not allow you to go entirely unpunished.”)

Jeremiah 33:19-22; The Lord spoke further to Jeremiah. “I, Lord, make the following promise: ‘I have made a covenant with the day and with the night that they will always come at their proper times. Only if you people could break that covenant could My covenant with My servant David and My covenant with the Levites ever be broken. So David will by all means always have a Descendent to occupy his throne as king and the Levites will by all means always have priests who will minister before Me. (22) I will make the children who follow one another in the line of My servant David very numerous. I will also make the Levites who minister before Me very numerous. I will make them all as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sands which are on the seashore.’” (All evil will be destroyed and all Israel will be God’s people.)

(Jer 33:23-26; “The Lord spoke still further to Jeremiah. “You have surely noticed what these ’non-Israelite’ people are saying, haven’t you? They are saying, ‘The Lord has rejected the two families of Israel and Judah that He chose.’ So they have little regard that My people will ever again be a nation. But I, the Lord, make the following promise: I have made a covenant governing the coming of day and night. I have established the fixed laws governing heaven and earth. Just as surely as I have done this, so surely will I never reject the descendents of Jacob. Nor will I ever refuse to choose one of My servant David’s Descendent to rule over the descendents of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Indeed, I will restore them and show mercy to them.”) HOW AWESOME HIS PLANNING.

God’s character is revealed to people of His choosing. God the Father reveals through His apostle Paul that Jesus is “The Deliverer to come out of Zion, the One that will remove sin from Jacob as ratified by His covenants promises through Abraham.

(Romans 11:26-27; “And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: “The Deliverer will come out of Zion; He will remove ungodliness from Jacob. And this is My covenant with them, when I take away their sins.”)

God’s characteristics are revealed throughout His Holy Word and to Paul, who shared previously made promises to the fathers for our edification in these last days. In view of these revelations we need to understand that as Creator, it’s God’s prerogative to choose a people for Himself. May we who are given to understand be edified.

(Rom 11:1-4; “So I “Paul” ask, God has not rejected His people has He? Absolutely not! For I too am an Israelite, a descendant of Abraham, from the tribe of Benjamin. God has not rejected His people whom He foreknew! Do you not know what the scripture says about Elijah, how he pleads with God against Israel? (3) “Lord, they have killed Your prophets, they have demolished Your altars; I alone am left and they are seeking my life!” But what was the divine response to him? “I have kept for Myself seven thousand people who have not bent the knee to Baal.”) In addition to his personal revelations, Paul is referring to 1Kings 19:18, Deut 29:4. Isaiah 29:10 and Psalms 69:23.

It’s beyond the thinking of people who love this world’s system of things to believe God to be so awesome as to predestinate, “to foreknow whom He would call in this age.”

(Rom 11:5-8;” So in the same way at the present time there is a remnant chosen by grace. And if it Is by grace, it is no longer by works, otherwise grace would no longer be grace. (7) What then? Israel failed to obtain what it was diligently seeking, but the Elect obtained it. The rest were hardened, as it is written, “God gave them a spirit of stupor, eyes that would not see and ears that would not hear, to this very day.”)

It’s all for our example. Study 1Cor 10: and let’s review (1Peter 2:7-10; “So you who believe see His “Jesus’” value, but for those who do not believe, the stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone, and a stumbling-stone and a rock to trip over. They stumble because they disobey the word, as they were destined to do. But you “followers of Jesus” are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people of His own, so that you may proclaim the virtues of the One who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. You once were not a people, but now you are God’s people. You were shown no mercy, but now you have received mercy.”)

God calls, opens minds and gives understanding so followers of Jesus may be His peculiar people, “a people separated from the world.” As we will see in the remainder of Romans 11, the Israelites were a stubborn people desiring to do what seemed right to themselves, rather than do what God desired. They as do all unbelievers today, “loved this world’s system of things.

(People were and are hardened, as it is written, “God gave them a spirit of stupor, eyes that would not see and ears that would not hear, to this very day.) Why? For a future time of saving!

(Rom 11:9-10; “And David says, “of the Israelites” “Let their table become a snare and trap, a stumbling block and a retribution for them; let their eyes be darkened so that they may not see, and make their backs bend continually.” (See Psalms 69:22-23)

(Rom 11:11-12; “I ask then, they did not stumble into an irrevocable fall, did they? Absolutely not! But by their transgression salvation has come to the Gentiles, to make Israel jealous. Now if their “Israelites” transgression means riches for the world and their defeat means riches for the Gentiles, how much more will their full restoration bring?”

Israel’s full restoration is yet to be! All followers of Jesus are spiritual Israelites and our full restoration is yet to be. Let’s continue prayerfully.

(Rom 11:13-16; “Now I am speaking to you Gentiles. Seeing that I am an apostle to the Gentiles, I magnify my ministry, if somehow I could provoke my people to jealousy and save some of them. For if their rejection is the reconciliation of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead? (16) If the first portion of the dough offered is holy, then the whole batch is holy, and if the root is holy, so too are the branches.”)

God made Jacob’s heirs a holy people and as such their root and branches are holy! What will their acceptance be? A resurrection, “life from the dead.” Such teaching don’t fit with this world’s heaven - hell doctrine does it? Remember Paul is writing to converted to Jesus’ Way gentiles.

(Rom 11:17-20; “Now if some of the branches were broken off, and you, “gentiles” a wild olive shoot, were grafted in among them and participated in the richness of the olive root, do not boast over the branches. But if you boast, remember that you do not support the root, but the root supports you. (19) Then you will say, “The branches were broken off so that I could be grafted in.” Granted! They were broken off because of their unbelief, but you stand by faith. Do not be arrogant, but fear!)

Each called person is called by grace, no room for arrogance. Each called person was known before the foundation of the world. It’s God’s prerogative now and will be throughout Jesus’ millennial reign.

(Rom 11:21-24; “For if God did not spare the natural branches, perhaps He will not spare you. Notice therefore the kindness and harshness of God – harshness toward those who have fallen, but God’s kindness toward you, provided you continue in His kindness; otherwise you also will be cut off. (23) And even they “the Israelites” – if they do not continue in their unbelief – will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again. For if you “gentiles” were cut off from what is by nature a wild olive tree, and grafted, contrary to nature, into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these natural branches be grafted back into their own olive tree?)

Gentile mentality has always been more prone to worship imaginary gods etc. A wildness like that attributed to Ishmael, but Jacob was called and chosen to be a cultivated by God person. This should show us a portion of God’s characteristics. Then and now, God does the choosing, calling, delivering and saving through His redemption plan as foreshadowed through His annual and weekly Sabbaths.

(Rom 11:25-27; “For I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers and sisters, so that you may not be conceited: A partial hardening has happened to Israel until the full number of the Gentiles has come in. (26) And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: “The Deliverer will come out of Zion; He will remove ungodliness from Jacob. And this is My covenant with them, when I take away their sins.”)

All because of God’s promises to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, other prophets and Jesus’ apostles. Remember what we’re built on?

(Rom 11:28-29; “In regard to the gospel they “the Israelites” are enemies for your sake, but in regard to Election they are dearly loved for the sake of the fathers. For the gifts and the call of God are irrevocable.”)

(Rom 11:30-32; “Just as you were formerly disobedient to God, but have now received mercy due to their disobedience, so they too have now been disobedient in order that, by the mercy shown to you, they too may now receive mercy. For God has consigned all people to disobedience so that He may show mercy to them all.”)

Remember Jesus died for the sins of the world. He’s Creator, Re-creator, Sustainer, Deliverer, Mediator and coming King of Kings. His kingdom and family is everlasting.

(Rom 11:33-36; “Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and how fathomless His ways! For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been His counselor? Or who has first given to God, that God needs to repay him? For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be glory forever! Amen.”)

If these things aren’t firmly believed, re-study Paul’s words at Colossians 1:15-20, John’s words at John 1:1-5 and Hebrews 1:. We can’t worship Him in spirit and truth without knowing His awesome characteristics and planning.

Jesus came in human form to fulfill the foreshadowing of Passover.

Even Adam, Eve, Cain and Abel were aware of the Lord’s commanding a blood sacrifice for the remission of sin. Blood sacrifices as commanded the Israelites through Moses looked forward to Jesus’ blood sacrifice and knowing that Jesus was “that Rock delivering Israel from Egypt through Moses.”

“Egyptian bondage represented sin” as does this world’s system of things today. Jesus living a fleshly life and died “shedding His life blood” for the sins of the world. Then He set a new precedence. Believing IN Jesus’ shed blood for the remission of sins is what the Passover celebration foreshadows. Believing IN, makes people “atOne with God the Father and God the Son.”

Paul taught the significance of remembering, practicing and examining one’s self when partaking of Jesus’ ordained Passover custom. So Believers IN, would be clothed and immersed in Jesus, thus “not be condemned with unbelievers.”

(1Cor 11:27-34; “For this reason, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. A person should examine himself first, and in this way let him eat the bread and drink of the cup. For the one who eats and drinks without careful regard for the body eats and drinks judgment against himself. That is why many of you are weak and sick, and quite a few are dead. (31) But if we examined ourselves, we would not be judged. But when we are judged by the Lord, we are delivered so that we may not be condemned with the world. So then, my brothers and sisters, when you come together to eat, “celebrate Passover” wait for one another. If anyone is hungry, let him eat at home, so that when you assemble it does not lead to judgment. I will give directions about other matters when I come.”)

Paul taught the gentile populations to consider themselves “grafted into the promises God made to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Moses. By grace, not of themselves ‘no methodology’ and once gifted to believe IN, continue clothing and immersing themselves in Jesus.

10/21/19, God’s 7th month, Tishrei 21, 5,780 until sunset.

To: 20,577 subscribers and all who’re called to be atOne with God the Father, God the Son and Heirs with Abraham.

By God’s revealing the fate of unauthorized prophets - teachers, you’d think denominationalist with agendas would be more cautious.

Today at sunset ends the Feast of Tabernacle and begins the seventh of seven annual Sabbaths, ’The Last Great Day.’ Jesus was keeping this date when He spoke the following: “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me, and let the one who believes in Me drink. Just as the scripture says, ‘From within him will flow rivers of living water.’” (Now He said this about the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were going to receive, for the Spirit had not yet been given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.) John 7:37-39)

Jesus knew the time for His crucifixion was near, delayed in Judea for a time, then purposely stayed in Jerusalem. His unbelieving brothers, ’James and Jude’ thought He was simply trying to make a reputation. (John 7:1-6; After this Jesus traveled throughout Galilee. He stayed out of Judea because the Jewish leaders wanted to kill Him. The Jewish feast of Tabernacles was near. So Jesus’ brothers advised him, “Leave here and go to Judea so your disciples may see your miracles that you’re performing. For no one who seeks to make a reputation for himself does anything in secret. If you are doing these things, show Yourself to the world.” (For not even His own brothers believed in him.)

John 7:6-10; So Jesus replied, “My time has not yet arrived, but you are ready at any opportunity! The world cannot hate you, but it hates Me, because I am testifying about it that its deeds are evil. You go up to the feast yourselves. I am not going up to this feast because My time has not yet fully arrived.” When He had said this, He remained in Galilee. But when his brothers had gone up to the feast, then Jesus Himself also went up, not openly but in secret.)

Jesus was the subject in Jerusalem, many were grumbling, some saying He deceives the common people, no one supported Him openly for fear of the Jewish leaders. Midst the Feast Jesus began to teach in the temple, leaders were astonished, saying: “How does He know so much when He has never had formal instruction?”) ‘It’s always been ‘people look to certificates of learning to discern other’s adequateness.

(John 7:16-17; So Jesus replied, “My teaching is not from Me, but from the One who sent Me. If anyone wants to do God’s will, he will know about My teaching, whether it is from God or whether I speak from My own authority.)

People who‘re ‘spirit led’ to genuinely want to know God’s will ‘recognize His truth.’ Jesus explained that God the Father had no unrighteousness in Himself, saying Moses gave you the law, yet you don’t keep it. You want to kill Me because You’re possessed by a demon. Moses gave you the practice of circumcision, yet you circumcise a male child on the Sabbath so as not to break the Sabbath, yet you’re angry at Me because I healed on the Sabbath. Don’t judge according to external appearances. Jesus went on to say, “you know where I come from but don’t know the One who’s true. I am going to the One that’s true, you’ll look for Me but will not find Me and where I’m going you can’t come. (See John 7:18-36)

The Israelites knew the Messiah was to be a descendent of David.

(John 7:50-53; “Nicodemus, who had gone to Jesus before and who was one of the rulers, said, “Our law doesn’t condemn a man unless it first hears from him and learns what he is doing, does it?” They replied, “You aren’t from Galilee too, are you? Investigate carefully and you will see that no prophet comes from Galilee!” (53) And each one departed to his own house.”)

Long before Jesus inspired Isaiah to write, regarding how Israel came to be. (Study the whole.)

Isaiah 51:1-4; “Listen to Me, you who pursue godliness, who seek the Lord! Look at the rock from which you were chiseled, at the quarry from which you were dug! Look at Abraham your father, and Sarah, who gave you birth. When I summoned him, he was a lone individual, but I blessed him and gave him numerous descendents. Certainly the Lord will console Zion; ‘Jerusalem area’ He will console all her ruins. He will make her wilderness like Eden, her desert like the Garden of the Lord. Happiness and joy will be restored to her, thanksgiving and the sound of music. (4) Pay attention to Me, My people! Listen to Me, My people! For I will issue a decree, I will make My justice a light to the nations. I am ready to vindicate, I am ready to deliver, I will establish justice among the nations. The coastlands wait patiently for Me; they wait in anticipation for the revelation of My power.”) (Hold these teaching dear, “Christians are spiritual Israelites.)

Isaiah 48:1-6; “Listen to this, O family of Jacob, you who are called by the name ‘Israel’ and are descendents from Judah, who take oaths in the name of the Lord, and invoke the God of Israel – but not in an honest and just manner. Indeed, they live in the holy city; they trust in the God of Israel, whose name is the Lord who commands armies. (3) “I announced events beforehand, I issued the decrees and made the predictions; suddenly I acted and they came to pass. I did this because I know how stubborn you are. Your neck muscles are like iron and your forehead like bronze. I announced them to you beforehand; before they happened, I predicted them for you, so you could never say, ‘My image did these things, my idol, my cast image, decreed them.’ (6) You have heard; now look at all the evidence! Will you not admit that what I say is true? From this point on I am announcing to you new events that are previously unrevealed and you do not know about.”)

(Remember we’re told through Daniel “knowledge would increase in these latter days.)

Isaiah 65:8-9; This is what the Lord says: “When juice is discovered in a cluster of grapes, someone says, ‘Don’t destroy it, for it contains juice.’ So I will do for the sake of My servants – I will not destroy everyone. I will bring forth descendents from Jacob, and from Judah people to take possession of My mountains. ‘government - Zion’ My chosen ones ’physical and spiritual Israelites’ will take possession of the land; My servants will live there.”)

(A times when others were leading Israel, Jesus prophesied through Jeremiah. As always study the whole and know that God does the installing.)

Jeremiah 23:1-3; The Lord says, “The leaders of My people are sure to be judged. They were supposed to watch over My people like shepherds watch over their sheep. But they are causing My people to be destroyed and scattered. So the Lord God of Israel has this to say about the leaders who are ruling over His people: “You have caused My people to be dispersed and driven into exile. You have not taken care of them. So I will punish you for the evil that you have done. I, the Lord, affirm it! Then I Myself will re-gather those of My people who are still alive from all the countries where I have driven them. I will bring them back to their homeland. They will greatly increase in number.

(Jer 23:4-6; I will install rulers over them who will care for them. Then they will no longer need to fear or be terrified. None of them will turn up missing. I, the Lord, promise it! “I, the Lord, promise that a new time will certainly come when I will raise up for them a righteous Branch, a descendent of David. (Jesus) He will rule over them with wisdom and understanding and will do what is just and right in the land. Under His rule Judah will enjoy safety and Israel will live in security. This is the name He will go by: ‘The Lord has provided us with justice.’

(Jer 23:7-9; “So I, the Lord, say: ‘A new time will certainly come. People now affirm their oaths with “I swear as surely as the Lord lives who delivered the people of Israel out of Egypt.” (8) But at that time they will affirm them with “I swear as surely as the Lord lives who delivered the descendents of the former nation of Israel from the land of the north and from all the other lands where he had banished them.” At that time they will live in their own land.’” (Note that God does it all. Remember Paul reminded us about covenant promises?)

Jeremiah 32:36-40; “You and your people are right in saying, ‘War, starvation, and disease are sure to make this city fall into the hands of the king of Babylon.’ But now I, the Lord God of Israel, have something further to say about this city: ‘I will certainly re-gather My people from all the countries where I will have exiled them in My anger, fury, and great wrath. I will bring them back to this place and allow them to live here in safety. They will be My people, and I will be their God. I will give them a single-minded purpose to live in a way that always shows respect for Me. They will want to do that for their own good and the good of the children who descend from them. (40) I will make a lasting covenant with them that I will never stop doing good to them. I will fill their hearts and minds with respect for Me so that they will never again turn away from Me. I will take delight in doing good to them. I will faithfully and wholeheartedly plant them firmly in the land.’”)

Note the words, “for their own good“ Followers of Jesus today and in those prophetic times will obey Jesus out of love.” God fills hearts! And will never stop doing good for them! God does it all, so none can boast. (We should have the mind set; “followers of Jesus are spiritual Israelites.”) People throughout the world are captives to this world’s system of things: deceived and don’t know it.”)

Universe, Earth and we’re for God’s purpose, chapter 18

Sunday, October 20th, 2019

10/20/19, God’s 7th month, Tishrei 20, 5,780 until sunset.

To: 20,525 subscribers and all who’re called to be atOne with God the Father, God the Son and Heirs with Abraham.

Followers of Jesus were called ‘His Way people’ before they were called Christian. Most professing Christians aren’t followers of Christ nor His way people, but traditionalist following denominations of choice. Since Babel and God confusing languages to spread people, ‘God’s way people have been a people of faith with perpetual promises.’ Beginning with faithful Abraham. It’s revealed to His Way people.

(Gal 3:27-29; For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female — for all of you are one in Christ Jesus. (29) And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to the promise.”)

It was through ‘Terah’ (Abraham and brother Nahor’s father) that the heir by promise “Descendant ‘Jesus” “Son of God” came to redeem sinners to God the Father and Himself. (See the historical beginning at Gen 11:28-18:16.) Afterward the Lord and two angels visited Abraham, pronounced the birth of Isaac and revealed His intent to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah.

(Gen 18:17-19; Then the LORD said, “Should I hide from Abraham what I am about to do? After all, Abraham will surely become a great and powerful nation, and all the nations on the earth will pronounce blessings on one another using his name. I have chosen him so that he may command his children and his household after him to keep the way of the LORD by doing what is right and just. Then the LORD will give to Abraham what He promised him.”)

The Lord said to Abraham, “The outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is so great and their sin so blatant that I must go down and see if they are as wicked as the outcry suggests. If not, I want to know.” Abraham began interceding for Sodom and particularly his nephew Lot. Read the account at Gen 18:22-32.) (Verse 33; The LORD went on His way when He had finished speaking to Abraham. Then Abraham returned home.”)

The promises to save and give eternal life through Jesus’ faith and by promise was always for ‘Jesus’ Way People.’ Continuing primarily through Abraham’s grandson ‘Jacob’ and his twelve sons, ’Israel.’ Revealed through Paul and others.

(Rom 3:1-4; “Therefore what advantage does the Jew have, or what is the value of circumcision? Actually, there are many advantages. First of all, the Jews were entrusted with the oracles of God. What then? If some did not believe, does their unbelief nullify the faithfulness of God? Absolutely not! Let God be proven true, and every human being shown up as a liar, just as it is written: “so that you will be justified in your words and will prevail when you are judged.”) (Oracles included care of the land, the poor, His calendar and attributes to live by.)

(Rom 3:5-8; “But if our unrighteousness demonstrates the righteousness of God, what shall we say? The God who inflicts wrath is not unrighteous, is He? (I am speaking in human terms.) Absolutely not! For otherwise how could God judge the world? For if by my lie the truth of God enhances His glory, why am I still actually being judged as a sinner? And why not say, “Let us do evil so that good may come of it”? — as some who slander us allege that we say. (Their condemnation is deserved!)


(Rom 3:9-20; “What then? Are we better off? Certainly not, for we have already charged that Jews and Greeks alike are all under sin, just as it is written: “There is no one righteous, not even one, there is no one who understands, there is no one who seeks God. All have turned away, together they have become worthless; there is no one who shows kindness, not even one.” “Their throats are open graves, they deceive with their tongues, the poison of asps is under their lips.” (14) “Their mouths are full of cursing and bitterness.” “Their feet are swift to shed blood, ruin and misery are in their paths, and the way of peace they have not known.” “There is no fear of God before their eyes.” Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be silenced and the whole world may be held accountable to God. (20) For no one is declared righteous before Him by the works of the law, for through the law comes the knowledge of sin.) (What God views as sin is defined by His law.)

The Righteousness of God IS Through JESUS’ Faith.

(Rom 3:21-25; But now apart from the law the righteousness of God (which is attested by the law and the prophets) has been disclosed-   namely, the righteousness of God through the faithfulness of Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. (Now we can see why salvation must be through Jesus’ gifted faith and promise.) (24) But they are justified freely by His ‘Jesus’’ grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. God publicly displayed Him at His death as the mercy seat accessible through faith. This was to demonstrate His righteousness, because God in His forbearance had passed over the sins previously committed. (It’s what the Passover kept in Egypt always looked forward to.)

Rom 3:26-31; “This was also to demonstrate His righteousness in the present time, so that He would be just and the Justifier of the one who lives because of Jesus’ faithfulness. (27) Where, then, is boasting? It is excluded! By what principle? Of works? No, but by the principle of faith! For we consider that a person is declared righteous by faith apart from the works of the law. (29) Or is God the God of the Jews only? Is He not the God of the Gentiles too? Yes, of the Gentiles too! Since God is One, He will justify the circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised through faith. Do we then nullify the law through faith? Absolutely not! Instead we uphold the law.”)

The Lord God Jesus, ‘the Descendent’ began prophesying peace on earth through His chosen, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, the prophets and completed them through His apostles.

Jesus’ apostle Paul understanding prophecies referred to Jesus as “the Descendent.” Revelations were given to Abraham, Moses and David prior to Jesus’ apostles and we Believers IN. Keep in mind, “When Jesus returns it’s a new beginning, a new age and all Israel will be saved.” Paul was gifted to understand God’s covenant promises.

Gal 3:15; “Brothers and sisters, I offer an example from everyday life: When a covenant has been ratified, even though it is only a human contract, no one can set it aside or add anything to it. Now the promises were spoken to Abraham and to his Descendent . Scripture does not say, “and to the descendents” referring to many, but “and to your, Descendent referring to One, who is Christ.

Gen 12:7; “The Lord appeared to Abram and said, “To your descendants ’Seed’ I will give this land. So Abram built an altar there to the Lord, who had appeared to him.” (Read the account of Abraham rescuing Lot.)

Gen 13:14-16; “After Lot had departed, the Lord said to Abram, “Look from the place where you stand to the north, south, east, and west. I will give all the land that you see to you and your descendants ’Seed’ forever. And I will make your descendants like the dust of the earth, so that if anyone is able to count the dust of the earth, then your descendants also can be counted.”

The Israelites through Moses, Joshua, the Judges, “Samuel being the last” and king David, never controlled to all the borders promised Abraham. Its obvious, “saving His Way People revolved around God’s planning through Abraham, Isaac, Jacob’s descendents and particularly David’s Descendent “Jesus.” Jesus’ followers are spiritual Israelites. (Review Galatians 3:29; “And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to the promise.””

The promises to Abraham follow through to Jacob’s son Joseph and his two sons, “Ephraim and Manasseh.”

Genesis 48:17-21; “When Joseph saw that his father placed his right hand on Ephraim’s head, it displeased him. So he took his father’s hand to move it from Ephraim’s head to Manasseh’s head. Joseph said to his father, “Not so, my father, for this is the firstborn. Put your right hand on his head.” But his father ’Jacob’ refused and said, “I know, my son, I know. He too will become a nation and he too will become great. In spite of this, his younger brother ‘Ephraim’ will be even greater and his descendents will become a multitude of nations.” So he ’Joseph’ blessed them that day, saying, “By you will Israel “Jacob” bless, saying, ‘May God make you like Ephraim and Manasseh.’” So he put Ephraim before Manasseh. (21) Then Israel ’Jacob’ said to Joseph, “I am about to die, but God will be with you and will bring you back to the land of your fathers. As one who is above your brothers, I give to you the mountain slope, which I took from the Amorites with my sword and my bow.”)

The Lord God “Jesus” continued this line of prophesying through His prophet Moses.

(Deut 18:15-19; “The Lord your God will raise up for you ’Israelites’ a prophet like me from among you – from your fellow Israelites; you must listen to Him. This accords with what happened at Horeb in the day of the assembly. You “Israelites” asked the Lord your God: “Please do not make us hear the voice of the Lord our God any more or see this great fire any more lest we die.” (17) The Lord then said to me “Moses” “What they have said is good. I will raise up a prophet like you for them from among their fellow Israelites. I will put My words in His mouth and He will speak to them whatever I command. I will personally hold responsible anyone who then pays no attention to the words that prophet speaks in My name.”)

(We know that prophet to be the Lord Jesus who spoke the words of His Father.) Deut 18:20; “But if any prophet ’teacher’ presumes to speak anything in My name that I have not authorized him to speak, or speaks in the name of other gods, that prophet must die.”

A future deliverance of all Israel to the borders promised Abraham is an absolute.

Universe, Earth and we’re for God’s purpose, chapter 17

 10/18/19, God’s 7th month, Tishrei 18, 5,780 until sunset.

To: 20,480 plus People, desiring to be atOne with God the Father, God the Son and Heirs with Abraham.

This third holy season is to remind we spiritual followers of Jesus that we’re spiritual Israelites, that our fleshly bodies are temporary and look forward to eternal life. God had fleshly Israel prepare, go live in temporary booths, festively worship for eight days, looking forward to resurrections, the millennial rule on earth and final judgment. The Lord God Jesus had Israel do and practice these physical things, each having their spiritual significances. Circumcision, the law of commandments, oracles, blood sacrifices of choice clean animals, the temple’s inclusion of behind the curtain’s holy of holist area, the ark of the covenant and outer courts; all looked forward to the spiritual, with a new covenant of promise with called out spiritual Israelites.

As God the Father and God the Son knew he, “Satan” the author of confusion began twisting God’s truth soon after Eve’s creation. Dividing families began with Adam’s. One son ‘believing In’ the other ’believing that.’ Believers that like Cain, accept a “seems to me, God should’ve mentality” or a “perhaps God will understand mindset.” This type thinking makes people think themselves as God’s equal.

When people like Cain trust their intellect, agenda’s develop, they then come down on particular sides of various issues; twisting God’s Word to fit agendas. It’s the reason denominations exist. Leaders in denominations become such people’s god. Belief that ‘a God exist’ replaces ‘belief IN God as He’s manifested to His prophets and apostles.’ Thinking  in terms of ’Israel’s God’ is foreign to denominational fleshly thinking. Yet He’s the only Creator, re-Creator, Sustainer, through whom life exist and through whom people can be redeemed. Hostility toward loving a Godly submission is the psychology  inherited from Adam. It’s the fleshly nature we’re all born with. Among religions it’s a “believing THAT a god exist” opposed to “believing IN a Creator, Sustaining God through whom life exist.” Many and various views are condoned by religious types, influenced by Satan and our inherited nature.

Genuine followers of Jesus know “Creator God is absolute” and “His is one way.” So, followers of Jesus can speak and teach with authority as did Jesus and His apostles. Naturally the hostile unbeliever hates authority, absolutes and the God of creation.

We followers of Jesus do respect intellect, education, people knowing several languages, the science of biology, space engineering etc. Our hats are off to people holding doctorate degrees. We’re also gifted to know a basic spiritual truth, ‘the educated majority don’t conceive of!’ It’s the fact that spiritual comprehension is only obtainable through God’s gifting it, His calling and gifting “a believing IN Him mindset.” God the Father and God the Son as they’re manifested to be in His holy word. Jesus taught it and His apostle John recorded it.

(John 14:15-17; “If you love Me, you will obey My commandments. Then I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Advocate “Helper” or “Counselor” to be with you forever – (17) the Spirit of truth that the world cannot accept, because it does not see God or know God. But you ‘believers IN’ know Him, because He resides with you and will be in you.” (Him in this text, means God.) It’s Spiritual, Gifted revelations - understandings of God the Father and God the Son’s characteristics are necessary to know God. Then we’re submissive to and love Jesus’ commandments.

(John 14:18-21; “I, ‘Jesus’ will not abandon you as orphans, I will come to you. In a little while the world will not see Me any longer, but you will see Me; because I live, you will live too. You will know at that time that I am in My Father and you are in Me and I am in you. (21) The person who has My commandments and obeys them is the one who loves Me. The one who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will reveal Myself to him.” (Reveal is the key, spiritual word. Intellect and education can’t reveal.)

(John 14:22-23; “Lord,” Judas (not Judas Iscariot) said, “what has happened that you are going to reveal Yourself to us and not to the world?” Jesus replied, “If anyone loves Me, he will obey My word, and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and take up residence with him.”

(World religions would have us believe ‘people can make a personal choice whether or not to know and love God.’ God teaches that without His reveling His characteristics we don‘t know Him. God reveals and followers of Jesus understand that all things are created through Jesus, who came to reveal His and our heavenly Father. Without His revealing we MAY love a god of our imagination but that doesn’t make us believers IN Him as He manifest Himself to be in the holy scriptures.)

(John 14:24; “The person who does not ’know and’ love Me does not obey My words. And the Word you hear is not Mine, but the Father’s who sent Me.”

(At this recording Jesus was speaking spiritual words, gifted from God the Father and from within His physical body, to His fleshly minded apostles, who weren’t precipitants of His gifted spirit until after His resurrection.)

(John 14:25-26; “I have spoken these things while staying with you. But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, will teach “reveal” you everything, and will cause you to remember everything I said to you.”)

Revisit 1John 1:, 2 and 3: and note that He isn’t including the spirit with God the Father and God the Son. The holy spirit is not a deity or person, but God’s power He emits to do His will, including spiritually opening minds, revealing and giving understand to. Remember Jesus said, “when you have seen me you have seen My Father.” Still speaking to His apostles, Jesus continued revealing the future and who the ruler of this world is.

(John 14:27-31; “Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; I do not give it to you as the world does. Do not let your hearts be distressed or lacking in courage. (28) You heard Me say to you, ‘I am going away and I am coming back to you.’ If you loved Me, you would be glad that I am going to the Father, because the Father is greater than I am. (29) I have told you now before it happens, so that when it happens you may believe. I will not speak with you much longer, for the ruler of this world is coming. He has no power over Me, (31) but I am doing just what the Father commanded Me, so that the world may know that I love the Father. Get up, let us go from here.”)

The ruler of this world is Satan! Remember, the devil offered Jesus the kingdoms of this world? What did Jesus say? “get behind Me Satan.” Jesus revealed Satan and his follower’s characteristics to His apostles and we followers. They present themselves as angels of light and deceive the whole world. Jesus reveals it through Paul.

(2Cor 11:13-15; “For such people are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. Therefore it is not surprising his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness, whose end will correspond to their actions.”)

Today’s Christendom churches “Evangelicals” teach a condoning of all things god, one accepting many beliefs and life styles. They’re worshiping the god of this world. Jesus revealed and Paul explained that God’s covenant promises are sure.

(Galatians 3:15-22; “Brothers and sisters, I offer an example from everyday life: When a covenant has been ratified, even though it is only a human contract, no one can set it aside or add anything to it. Now the promises were spoken to Abraham and to his descendant. Scripture does not say, “and to the descendants,” referring to many, but “and to your descendant,” referring to One, who is Christ. What I am saying is this: The law that came four hundred thirty years later does not cancel a covenant previously ratified by God, so as to invalidate the promise. (18) For if the “our” inheritance is based on the law, it is no longer based on the promise, but God graciously gave it to Abraham through the promise. (19-22; “Why then was the law given? It was added because of transgressions, until the arrival of the Descendant to whom the promise had been made. It “the law” was administered through angels by an intermediary. Now an intermediary is not for one party alone, but God is One. (21) Is the law therefore opposed to the promises of God? Absolutely not! For if a law had been given that was able to give life, then righteousness would certainly have come by the law. But the scripture imprisoned everything and everyone under sin so that the promise could be given – because of the faithfulness of Jesus Christ – to those who believe.”)

Jesus’ faith imputed to our minds through the Holy Spirit makes we Believers IN immortal. It’s God’s Way of making people atOne with Himself, His method of putting “Believers in the Family of God.” Thus we’re saved by promised grace from the result of sin.

(Ephesians 2:1-3; “And although you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you formerly lived according to this world’s present path, according to the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the ruler of the spirit that is now energizing the sons of disobedience, among whom all of us also formerly lived out our lives in the cravings of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath even as the rest. (4-10; “But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even though we were dead in transgressions, made us alive together with Christ – by grace you are saved! – and He raised us up with Him and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, ’WHY’ to demonstrate in the coming ages the surpassing wealth of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. (8) For by grace you are saved through faith, and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God; it is not from works, so that no one can boast. (10) For we are His workmanship, having been created in Christ Jesus for good works that God prepared beforehand so we may do them.”) MUCH MORE is to be demonstrated and understood in the coming ages!

10/17/19, God’s 7th month, Tishrei 17, 5,780 until sunset.

To: People desiring to be atOne with God the Father, God the Son and Heirs with Abraham.

Repentance is a turning from the inherited from Adam nature, its fleshly pulls and carnal desires “to the revealed drawing in to Jesus’ nature.” When we’re converted to His Way, He gives the desire to be atOne with Himself. His apostle Paul explains.

(Philippians 2:12-13; “So then, my dear friends, just as you have always obeyed, not only in my presence but even more in my absence, continue working out your salvation with awe and reverence, (13) for the One bringing forth in you both the desire and the effort – for the sake of His good pleasure – is God.)

It starts with a calling, a revelation of our lawlessness toward God and the gifted desire to turn. Jesus gave His parable on the subject, then explained the parable, Matthew, Mark and Luke recorded Him.

(Luke 8:9-10; “Then His disciples asked Him what this parable meant. He said, “You “apostles” have been given the opportunity to know the secrets of the kingdom of God, but for others they are in parables, so that although they see they may not see, and although they hear they may not understand.”

(Luke 8:11-15; “Now the parable means this: The seed is the word of God. Those “seed” along the path are the ones who have heard; then the devil “or one of his followers” comes and takes away the word from their hearts, so that they may not believe and be saved. (13) Those “seed” on the rock are the ones who receive the word with joy when they hear it, but they have no root. They believe for a while, but in a time of testing fall away. (14) As for the seed that fell among thorns, these are the ones who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked by the worries and riches and pleasures of life, and their fruit does not mature. (15) But as for the seed that landed on good soil, these are the ones who, after hearing the word, cling to it with an honest and good heart, and bear fruit with steadfast endurance.”) Few seem to understand Jesus’ reason for giving parables; review verse ten above.

In view of Jesus’ explanation of His parable we do need to count the cost for living contrary to this world’s system of things “whose god is the devil” the bureaucracies, worldly religions etc. We need to take into account, Jesus’ explanation of why He came.

(Matthew 10:34-39; “Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace but a sword. For I have come to set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law, and a man’s enemies will be the members of his household. (37-39; “Whoever loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me, and whoever loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And whoever does not take up his cross “way of life” and follow Me is not worthy of Me. Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life because of Me will find it.”)

It may be that we followers of Jesus need to apply more steadfastness and perseverance in this latter age than they of previous times. This may be the reason for Jesus’ parable about the last becoming first.

(Matthew 19:30; “But many who are first will be last, and the last first.” Jesus’ parable begins in chapter 20 and is about hiring of laborers in a vineyard. (Matt 20:8-16; “When it was evening the owner of the vineyard said to his manager, ‘Call the workers and give the pay starting with the last hired until the first.’ When those hired about five o’clock came, each received a full day’s pay. And when those hired first came, they thought they would receive more. But each one also received the standard wage. When they received it, they began to complain against the landowner, saying, ‘These last fellows worked one hour, and you have made them equal to us who bore the hardship and burning heat of the day.’ And the landowner replied to one of them, ‘Friend, I am not treating you unfairly. Didn’t you agree with me to work for the standard wage? Take what is yours and go. I want to give to this last man the same as I gave to you. Am I not permitted to do what I want with what belongs to me? Or are you envious because I am generous?’ So the last will be first, and the first last.”)

Life in the blood, particularly Jesus’

Jesus’ good news “gospel” is about people being saved through Jesus‘ shed blood. God’s set aside “sanctified” people were commanded not to partake of blood with the meat. (Deut 12:23-24; “However, by no means eat the blood, for the blood is life itself – you must not eat the life with the meat! You must not eat it! You must pour it out on the ground like water.”)

Blood representing life itself looked forward to Jesus shedding His blood “Life” for the remission of the world’s sin. The Passover before Israel’s deliverance with blood on door facings saved people from the death angel and looked forward to our being saved through Jesus’ blood sacrifice. On the Passover before Jesus’ death He instituted the Passover meal with wine representing His blood and bread representing His body.

(John 6:28-31; “So then they “those following Jesus” said to Him, “What must we do to accomplish the deeds God requires?” Jesus replied, “This is the deed God requires – to believe in the One whom He sent.” (30) So they said to Him, “Then what miraculous sign will you perform, so that we may see it and believe You? What will you do? Our ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness, just as it is written, ‘He gave them bread from heaven to eat.’”

(John 6:32-34; Then Jesus told them, “I tell you the solemn truth, it is not Moses who has given you the bread from heaven, but My Father is giving you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is the One who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.” So they said to Him, “Sir, give us this bread all the time!”)

“It was Jesus, the Alpha and Omega, the Lord God of Abraham and Moses that gave manna ‘bread’ from heaven for that forty years. See John 1:1-5, Col 1:20-25, and Heb 1:”

(John 6:35-36 Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. The one who comes to Me will never go hungry, and the one who believes in Me will never be thirsty. But I told you that you have seen Me and still do not believe.”

“Consider the miracles Jesus had already done as a witness to who He is, and yet these wanted a greater miracle likened to His feeding their ancestors forty years.” Now note who is saved by grace!

(John 6:37-40; “Everyone whom the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will never send away. For I have come down from heaven not to do My own will but the will of the One who sent Me. Now this is the will of the One who sent Me – that I should not lose one person of every one He has given Me, but raise them all up at the last day. (40) For this is the will of My Father – for everyone who looks on the Son and believes IN Him to have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.”

(“This is why we go to great length, attempting to explain the difference of believing IN opposed to believing THAT. People can of themselves come to believe most anything. Its natural to attempt being religious in one’s own mind, thinking to believe a god of the imagination or a god of one’s denomination exist and can save. “Such thinking is to put methodology up front.” Jesus stated, “I should not lose one person the Father has given Me “but resurrect each on the last day.” To believe Him “is to believe IN” not to believe in Him is to demonstrate hostility. Like the example of those attempting to judge God’s Way, as did the ones in Jesus’ parable about the laborers desiring what they though a fair wage.)


(John 6:41-46; “Then the Jews who were hostile to Jesus began complaining about Him because He said, “I am the bread that came down from heaven,” and they said, “Isn’t this Jesus the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How can He now say, ‘I have come down from heaven’?” Jesus replied, “Do not complain about Me to one another. (44) No one can come to me unless the Father who sent Me draws him, and I will raise him up at the last day. It is written in the prophets, ‘And they will all be taught by God.’ Everyone who hears and learns from the Father comes to Me. (Not that anyone has seen the Father except the One who is from God – He has seen the Father.)

The good news is about being called, gifted with understanding and desiring His Way.

(John 6:47-51; “I tell you the solemn truth, the one who believes “IN” has eternal life. I am the bread of life. Your ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died. This is the bread that has come down from heaven, so that a person may eat from it and not die. I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats from this bread he will live forever. The bread that I will give for the life of the world is My flesh.”

Unbelievers are fleshly minded. Jesus’ apostle Paul explained. (Rom 8:5-11; “For those who live according to the flesh have their outlook shaped by the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit have their outlook shaped by the things of the Spirit. For the outlook of the flesh is death, but the outlook of the Spirit is life and peace, because the outlook of the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to the law of God, nor is it able to do so. (8) Those who are in the flesh cannot please God. You, “believers IN Jesus” however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, this person does not belong to Him. But if Christ is in you, your body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is your life because of “Jesus” righteousness. Moreover if the Spirit of the One who raised Jesus from the dead lives in you, the One who raised Christ from the dead will also make your mortal bodies alive through His Spirit who lives in you.”)

(John 6:52-58; “Then the Jews who were hostile to Jesus began to argue with one another, “How can this man give us His flesh to eat?” Jesus said to them, “I tell you the solemn truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in yourselves. The one who eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day. For My flesh is true food, and My blood is true drink. The one who eats My flesh and drinks My blood resides in Me, and I in him. Just as the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so the one who consumes Me will live because of Me. (58) This is the bread that came down from heaven; it is not like the bread your ancestors ate, but then later died. The one who eats this bread will live forever.”)

Jesus made the metaphor of eating and drinking Him clear with the ceremonial “Lord’s Supper.” Jesus’ apostle Paul draws the analogy for we Believers IN.

(2Cor 5:1-10; “For we “followers of Jesus” know that if our earthly house, the tent we live in, is dismantled, we have a building from God, a house not built by human hands, that is eternal in the heavens. For in this earthly house “body” we groan, because we desire to put on our heavenly dwelling, (3) if indeed, after we have put on our heavenly house, we will not be found naked. For we “followers of Jesus” groan while we are in this tent, since we are weighed down, because we do not want to be unclothed, but clothed, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. (5) Now the One who prepared us for this very purpose is God, who gave us the Spirit as a down payment. Therefore we are always full of courage, and we know that as long as we are alive here on earth we are absent from the Lord – (7) for we live by faith, not by sight. Thus we are full of courage and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord. So then whether we are alive or away, we make it our ambition to please Him. (10) For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may be paid back according to what he has done while in the body, whether good or evil.”)

Not only are we followers of Jesus being reconciled to God the Father through Jesus’ blood sacrifice in this age, “in Christ, God was reconciling the world to Himself, not counting people’s trespasses against them and He has given us, “we followers of Jesus -as ambassadors” with the message of reconciliation.

(2Cor 5:14-21; “For the love of Christ controls us, since we have concluded this, that Christ died for all; therefore all have died. And He died for all so that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for Him who died for them and was raised. (16) So then from now on we acknowledge no one from an outward human point of view. Even though we “apostles” have known Christ from such a human point of view, now we do not know Him in that way any longer. So then, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; what is old has passed away – look, what is new has come. (18) And all these things are from God who reconciled us to Himself through Christ, and who has given us the ministry of reconciliation. In other words, Therefore we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making His plea through us. We plead with you on Christ’s behalf, “Be reconciled to God!” (21) God “the Father” made the One “Jesus” who did not know sin to be sin for us, so that in Him “Jesus” we would become the righteousness of God.”)

Now we all know that God the Father does the calling and we are hopeful that sound words penetrate minds and encourage steadfastness.
