 This end time New Covenant age was preplanned and special to our Creator. Before Creator Jesus’ physical birth people didn’t have the many life examples and knowledge that’s available to us now. Jesus’ words at John 12:48-50 includes and explains why, He said, “the WORDS I have spoken will judge, at the last day.” “For, I have not spoken from My own authority, but the Father Himself who sent Me has commanded Me what I should say and what I should speak. And I know that His commandment is eternal life. Thus the things I say, I say just as the Father has told Me.”

     Our spiritual New Covenant age began with Jesus’ resurrection and ascension. Jesus first came to His own by promise to Abraham,-the Israelites, with His truths He had the prophets foretell long before His coming. It was preplanned that, His disciples would go to the lost ten tribes of Israel first. After Jesus’ ascension and, ‘His New Covenant Jerusalem Church of God established’ He began calling out and sending His apostles to gentiles and scattered Israelites. PETER shared Jesus’ prophetic words to and through Moses from Deuteronomy for the Israelites then, those present at the time and, we in this age.

     (Acts 3:22-26; Moses said; The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your brothers. You must obey Him in everything He tells you. Every person who does not obey that prophet will be destroyed and thus removed from the people. And all the prophets from Samuel and those who followed him, have spoken about and announced these days. You -Believers IN Jesus- are the sons of the prophets and of the covenant that God made with your ancestors, saying to Abraham, ‘And in your descendants all the nations of the earth will be blessed.’ God raised His servant and sent Him first to you, to bless you by turning each one of you from your iniquities.”) NOTE, God does the turning of His people. God the Father sent God the Son as promised to Abraham, Moses and other prophets to perform all the foretold deeds and that eternal life would be through Him. See Deuteronomy 18:15.

    (Jesus inspired His apostle Paul to write; “prophecies may fail but My Word will never fail.” See 1Cor 13:8.) Believers IN are joyous, at the news of Jesus’ return and a shortening of allotted time before His two witnesses share His message to the world from Jerusalem. So, what about these two witnesses’ message, that’ll be so upsetting to the world at large? Why was Jesus and His apostles’ message so upsetting, to the worldly religious that they persecuted and killed all but one? (The world at large has always and will always yield to the demonic way of get, rather than God’s Way of give.) Jesus’ two witnesses’ message will correspond with God’s truths through His called out prophets and teachers. Thus, if the world hated Jesus’ message, they’ll hate His messenger’s and our truths.

     CONSIDER, when Jesus’ truths are taught, families and communities won’t be likely supporters. Why? Jesus said, ‘if they didn’t believe Me they won’t believe you.’ Jesus’ message is almost totally opposite popular doctrinal teaching among denominations.

    Jesus said, (John 8:43-44; If you don’t understand what I am saying? It is because you cannot accept My teaching. You people are from your father the devil and you want to do what your father desires. He was a murderer from the beginning and does not uphold the truth, because there is no truth in him.)The true Jesus is not a Son sent to water down His Father’s commands, but He’s Re-Creator, Creator, our Savior and much more. It was preplanned that He’d not be recognized except to the called. Consider His deity again. (Review John 1:1-5, Heb 1:1-4 and Col 1:15-20 to understand why He’s not recognized by unbelievers.)

    It was He, the Lord God Jesus giving Moses the Ten Commandments and oracles of God, but worldly popular denominationalist like to teach a Jesus that changes things to, correspond to popular doctrines. Worldly denominations don’t grasp that only Jesus, ‘the first born’ was born immortal. The rest of humanity was and is born mortal. However, it’s appealing to the world’s denominations to teach, ‘when a child dies before an age of accountability they live forever in heaven’, but John the Baptist taught, ‘the chaff will burn up.’ He’s quoted in Matthew’s gospel account.

    (Matt 3:11-12; I baptize you with water, for repentance, but the One coming after me is more powerful than I am – I am not worthy to carry His sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. His winnowing fork is in His hand, He will clean out His threshing floor and will gather His wheat into the storehouse, but the chaff He will burn up with inextinguishable fire.) Additionally, Jesus revealed a second death four times to John, in His revelations to John. (See Revelations 2:11, 20:6. 20:14 and 21:8.) Denominationalist love the demonically inspired, ‘live forever someplace doctrine.’ (Deceased infants will likely be in a future physical resurrection.)

   The Lord God Jesus purposely set aside holy times for His people, ‘times to rest, times to reflect on His return, times foreshadowing resurrections, judgment and peace on earth.’ Popular worldly teaching reverts to demonic paganism that honor, ‘the god of fertility –Easter, the sun god – the winter equinox-Christmas and other practices such as the popular Asherah Pole for some. (See Jeremiah 10:2-4 and (Deuteronomy 16:21-22; You must not plant any kind of tree as a sacred Asherah pole near the altar of the LORD your God which you build for yourself. You must not erect a sacred pillar, a thing the LORD your God detests.)

    Jesus and His apostles taught the resurrections, Israelites’ future deliverance to borders promised Abraham and their harmonious gifted living. (See Isaiah 22:, 35:, 51:, 65, & Jeremiah 31: for prophecies regarding Israel’s future deliverances.)

    Worldly religions teach various forms of immortality at birth, and various heaven and hell doctrines, from Baal and other pagan gods. Few are spiritually led to study and prove all things.

      When many Israelites rejected Jesus’ good news after His ascension, He commanded some apostles to turn to non-Israelites. The Jerusalem church of God should’ve known based on promises to Abraham and past history with gentiles submitting to circumcision in order to become citizens of Israel. After gentiles were called to follow Jesus, and turn from their old pagan ways, Barnabas and Paul explained their circumstances to the Jerusalem congregation.

    (Acts 13:46-48; Both Paul and Barnabas replied courageously, “It was necessary to speak the word of God to you –Israelites- first, but since you reject it and, do not consider yourselves worthy of eternal life, we are turning to the Gentiles. For this is what the Lord has commanded us; ‘I have appointed you to be a light for the Gentiles, to bring salvation to the ends of the earth.’ When the Gentiles heard this, they began to rejoice and praise the word of the Lord, and all who had been APPOINTED for eternal life.”) See Isaiah 42: and 49: Turning to Gentiles was a shocking rebuke to 1st century Jews who thought they alone were the recipients of God’s promise.

     The Light of the world –Jesus- was rejected by the stubborn fleshly minded Israelites, who were recipients of Jesus’ Ten Commandments and the oracles of God. We now have this history of -Peter and Barnabas relating these things to the Jerusalem church of God and about gentile conversions. Today, Jesus’ good news is still being rejected by a demonically divided world religions, but God is still calling out a people APPOINTED FOR ETERNAL LIFE, taking them to His proverbial Potter’s wheel for training, learning and spiritual Re-Creation. The LORD God Jesus had Jeremiah pen the following.

     (Jeremiah 18:1-4; 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.

    Could it be that the USA is in similar situation as was Israel? (Jer 18:5-12; 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, YOU are JUST LIKE THIS potter’s hand.’ There are times, Jeremiah when I threaten to uproot, tear down, and destroy a nation or kingdom. But if that nation, I threatened stops doing wrong, I will cancel the destruction I INTENDED to do to it. And there are times when I promise to build up and establish a nation or kingdom. But if that nation does what displeases Me and does not OBEY Me, then I will cancel the good, I promised to do to it. So now, 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!’”)

     God has and is now is in the process of spiritually Re-Creating a people for Himself. A loving Him people, because He first loved them. When we believe IN God, we’re yielded to that Master Potter’s hand. God’s plan includes His bringing New Jerusalem down and ultimately Re-Creating this earth and planets.

    To believe in the gods of the many denominational sects and cultures, is to accept their imaginary gods and make them your own. This describes religions of this age. Knowingly or unknowingly, religions teach various godly characteristics. Not understanding that Satan’s purpose is to make parishioners merchandise. Religiously speaking the world is back to the point it was before the flood, when Jesus destroyed all but Noah, his family and selected breathing kinds.

    Worldly religions and their parishioners have their doubts about that flood’s occurrence, as described in the book of Genesis. Unless people are a called and gifted to believe IN God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ, their faith is conjured up. Not gifted confidence in the Genesis account of creation and the flood.

     Before that flood, earth’s populations was divided by Satan influenced people groups as is today. (Practicing as they deem right in their own eyes, and becoming gods to themselves as is prevalent today.) They built cities much like cities in this age, grew crops, used animals and invented machines. Life practices revolved around revelry as today. Jesus prophesied about times before His return.

     (Matt 24:36-41; But as for that day and hour no one knows it – not even the angels in heaven – except the Father alone. 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. Then there will be two men in the field; one will be taken and one left. There will be two women grinding grain with a mill; one will be taken and one left.”)
