12/17/2,019 God’s 9th Month, Av 19, 5,780    

To: In resident churches, people gifted with desire to be atOne with God.

We try to say/write words that’ll penetrate the minds of those being called. Mindful that it’s been predetermined that the whole world will be deceived except ‘the Elect.’ Mindful of Jesus’ Words; “And if those days had not been cut short, no one would be saved. But for the sake of the Elect those days will be cut short. Matt 24:22) Elect are the chosen who’re called to believe IN Jesus as He manifest Himself to be at (Col 1:15-20, John 1:1-5 and Hebrews 1:.) “Man’s beliefs allow nourished inherited hostilities to remain, don’t see the need for changing from pagan practices and think it okay to go the way that seems right. Many of these will suffer the end age prophesied plagues. See Rev 9:18-20) Jesus tells us what these end age societies will be like.

For just like the days of Noah were, so the coming of the Son of Man will be. For in those days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day Noah entered the ark. And they knew nothing until the flood came and took them all away. It will be the same at the coming of the Son of Man.” Matt 24:37-39)

Only God’s Elect are blessed to be recipients of His Spirit of Truth  others can’t accept.” (John 14:17 and 14:26; “The Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot accept, because the world does not see Him or know Him. But you ‘Elect’ know Him, because He resides with you and will be in you.”) (26) “But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, will teach you everything, and will cause you to remember everything I said to you.”)

The deceiver promotes ideologies of all sorts and each assume as Paul did, “all but us” NO, all who aren’t “God’s Elect” as Jesus said, “will be deceived.” In route to Damascus Jesus told Paul what “as a witnessing servant he was called to do.” Perhaps not to the same degree, but God’s Elect have similar duties.

(Acts 26:15-18; The Lord replied to Paul, ‘I am Jesus whom you are persecuting. But get up and stand on your feet, for I have appeared to you for this reason, to designate you in advance as a servant and witness to the things you have seen and to the things in which I will appear - ‘reveal’ to you. I will rescue you from your own people and from the Gentiles, to whom I am sending you, to open their eyes so that they turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a share among those who are sanctified by faith in Me.’

God does the equipping so His called can do His will in things pleasing to Himself through Jesus. Paul explained to the Hebrews.

(Heb 13:20-21; “Now may the God of peace who by the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead the great shepherd of the sheep, our Lord Jesus Christ, equip you with every good thing to do His will, working in us what is pleasing before Him through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever. Amen.”

Paul was inspired to teach “present Jesus’ truth with spiritual logic that’s difficult to criticize.

(Titus 2:1-8; But as for you, ‘Titus’ communicate the behavior that goes with sound teaching. Older men are to be temperate, dignified, self-controlled, sound in faith, in love, and in endurance. Older women likewise are to exhibit behavior fitting for those who are holy, not slandering, not slaves to excessive drinking, but teaching what is good. In this way they will train the younger women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be self-controlled, pure, fulfilling their duties at home, kind, being subject to their own husbands, so that the message of God may not be discredited. Encourage younger men likewise to be self-controlled, showing yourself to be an example of good works in every way. In your teaching show integrity, dignity, and a sound message that cannot be criticized, so that any opponent will be at a loss, because he has nothing evil to say about us.”

Hostile people criticize Paul’s use of the word ‘slave’ in this context, not aware “there’s a righteous altruistic servitude way for masters and servants.” It’s God’s perfect welfare system. Under God’s system regardless of debt or cost a slave could only be used seven years before granting freedom; then if the slave wanted to remain in servitude He’d pierce a ear to indicate that.

(Titus 2:9-15; Slaves are to be subject to their own masters in everything, to do what is wanted and not talk back, not pilfering, but showing all good faith, in order to bring credit to the teaching of God our Savior in everything. For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all people. (12) It ‘grace’ trains us to reject godless ways and worldly desires and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, as we wait for the happy fulfillment of our hope in the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ. He gave Himself for us to set us free from every kind of lawlessness and to purify for Himself a people who are truly His, who are eager to do good. So communicate these things with the sort of exhortation or rebuke that carries full authority. Don’t let anyone look down on you.”) (Christian employees and employers should apply this Godly teaching. There’s necessary spiritual lessons to be learned while practicing adherence to God’s ordained authorities.)

The end of this age’s hostilities Jesus described is detailed by Peter, explaining the likeness of the two ages.

(2Peter 2:1-21; But false prophets arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. These false teachers will infiltrate your midst with destructive heresies, even to the point of denying the Master who bought them. As a result, they will bring swift destruction on themselves. And many will follow their debauched lifestyles. Because of these false teachers, the way of truth will be slandered. And in their greed they will exploit you with deceptive words. Their condemnation pronounced long ago is not sitting idly by; their destruction is not asleep.

(2Pet 2:4-11; For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but threw them into hell (Tartarus - pit -lower earth) and locked them up in chains in utter darkness, to be kept until the judgment, and if He did not spare the ancient world, but did protect Noah, a herald of righteousness, along with seven others, when God brought a flood on an ungodly world, and if He turned to ashes the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah when He condemned them to destruction, having appointed them to serve as an example to future generations of the ungodly,  and if He rescued Lot, a righteous man in anguish over the debauched lifestyle of lawless men, (for while he lived among them day after day, that righteous man was tormented in his righteous soul by the lawless deeds he saw and heard — if so, then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from their trials, and to reserve the unrighteous for punishment at the day of judgment, especially those who indulge their fleshly desires and who despise authority. Brazen and insolent, they are not afraid to insult the glorious ones, yet even angels, who are much more powerful, do not bring a slanderous judgment against them before the Lord.) See Gen 18:)

(2Pet 2:12-13; But these men, like irrational animals — creatures of instinct, born to be caught and destroyed — do not understand whom they are insulting, and consequently in their destruction they will be destroyed, suffering harm as the wages for their harmful ways. By considering it a pleasure to carouse in broad daylight, they are stains and blemishes, indulging in their deceitful pleasures when they feast together with you.

(2Pet 2:14-16; Their eyes, full of adultery, never stop sinning; they entice unstable people. They have trained their hearts for greed, these cursed children! By forsaking the right path they have gone astray, because they followed the way of Balaam son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness, yet was rebuked for his own transgression (a dumb donkey, speaking with a human voice, restrained the prophet’s madness).

(See Numbers 22: & 31:)

(2Pet 2:17-22;These men are waterless springs and mists driven by a storm, for whom the utter depths of darkness have been reserved. For by speaking high-sounding but empty words they are able to entice, with fleshly desires and with debauchery, people who have just escaped from those who reside in error. Although these false teachers promise such people freedom, they themselves are enslaved to immorality. For whatever a person succumbs to, to that he is enslaved. For if after they have escaped the filthy things of the world through the rich knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they again get entangled in them and succumb to them, their last state has become worse for them than their first. For it would have been better for them never to have known the way of righteousness than, having known it, to turn back from the holy commandment that had been delivered to them. They are illustrations of this true proverb: “A dog returns to its own vomit,” and “A sow, after washing herself, wallows in the mire.”)

Because deception is worldwide, in residence worship is recommended.

(Matthew 18:20; “For where two or three are assembled in My name, I am there among them.”) (In Jesus’ name means; “in the nature of” or “as an ambassadors of Jesus.”) Using Jesus’ name superstitiously doesn’t allow for a miraculous appearance. (People using; “in the name of Jesus” without His gifted understanding, His deity and characteristics are superstitiously worshiping blindly.

It’s idolatry when people imagine Jesus fitting some artist’s description, baby in manger or a dead image on a cross. The Son of God ’Jesus’ in fleshly form, looked and dressed like the ordinary men of His time. Willingly allowed Himself to endure the stripes for our healing and shed His blood for the remission of sin. He died, was buried and put in His tomb on the fourteenth day of Nisan as preplanned. They hurried to put Him in the tomb before sunset beginning the fifteenth day annual Sabbath, commencing the beginning of the Feast of Unleavened Bread. It paralleled the Passover celebration in Egypt when blood was placed on door facings so the death angel would Passover and Israel fleeing on the fifteenth of Nisan. On the morning of Nisan eighteen, Jesus’ tomb was found empty. Jesus was three nights and three days in the tomb as Jonah’s time in the big fish’s belly. If the fourteenth of Nisan had fell on Friday ‘day six’ that year they’d found His tomb empty on day three.
