Eternal Life, chapter 10

To: In home churches of God. God’s 8th month Cheshvan 18. 5,781, 11/5/20

     World’s Christendom life styles practices and condoning indicates beliefs that the God of Abraham is fictitious or dead. Accordingly they live as if Jesus is an evolving imaginary deity who condones societal changes. Such a Jesus never lived except in people’s imagination. God called believers in know the God of Abraham is the same Lord God Jesus that delivered Israel through Moses from Egyptian bondage, called twelve apostles who’d be His ambassadors and ultimately sit on 12 thrones ruling the 12 tribes. See Mat 19:28  & (Hebrews 1:1-4; After God spoke long ago in various portions and in various ways to our ancestors through the prophets, in these last days He has spoken to us in a Son, whom He appointed heir of all things and through whom He created the world. The Son is the radiance of His glory and the representation of His essence, and He sustains all things by His powerful word and so when He had accomplished cleansing for sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high. Thus He became so far better than the angels as He has inherited a name superior to theirs.)

   Superior to Angels

      (Heb1:5-10; For to which of the angels did God ever say, “You are My Son! Today I have fathered you?” And in another place He says, “I will be His father and He will be My Son.” But when He again brings His firstborn into the world, He says, “Let all the angels of God worship Him!” And He says of the angels, “He makes His angels spirits and His ministers a flame of fire,” but of The Son He says, “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever, and a righteous scepter is the scepter of Your kingdom. You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness. So God, Your God, has anointed You over Your companions with the oil of rejoicing.You founded the earth in the beginning, Lord and the heavens are the works of Your hands.)

    (Heb 1:11-14; They will perish but You continue. And they will all grow old like a garment, and like a robe you will fold them up and like a garment they will be changed, but You are the same and your years will never run out.” But to which of the angels has He ever said, “Sit at My right hand until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet?: Are they not all ministering spirits, sent out to serve those who will inherit salvation?)

    God our Father, God the Son and our Savior is the only God we’re to worship.

    Nations and most people groups calling themselves Christian stopped practicing the biblical definition of Christian soon after Jesus’ ascension as He predicted. The shame is that so called western world professing Christians with God‘s Holy Bible in most homes are practicing more imaginary Baal teaching than Jesus‘.

    Who among us has the wit to see? Jesus destroyed Sodom and Gomorra for their abominable life styles. What denominational preacher group is defining sin from God’s point of view, and calling nations to repentance?

     God used the Babylonians to overthrow and take Israel captive because they turned from Him to imaginary pagan gods like Baal and others. Who is called and given revelations to know that the God of Abraham is still in control? Know He can take nations down and lift up whom He will, and give people leaders they deserve. Who knows He allows Satan to be the god of hostile unbelievers?

      Common intellect teaches thinking people that the many religions with various doctrines, claiming to teach Jesus’ Way are led by a wrong spirits. Jesus and His apostles taught that God opens minds and calls whom He chooses. So, we who’re called must emphasize their words in Jesus’ faith to the world. Moses was led to reveal to Israel and us that many religions would corrupt the world.

      (Deut 31:28-29; Gather to me all your tribal elders and officials so I can speak to them directly about these things and call the heavens and the earth to witness against them. For I know that after I die you will totally corrupt yourselves and turn away from the path I have commanded you to walk. Disaster will confront you in the days to come because you will act wickedly before the Lord, inciting Him to anger because of your actions.)

      If today’s professing Christians were taught that followers of Jesus are indeed Abraham’s heirs, perhaps more would convert to a true Belief IN. Paul taught it to the Galatians and all who’d hear.

    (Gal 2;29; And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to the promise.)

     Long before Israel’s deliverance from Egypt, the non-Israelite world was worshiping imaginary god’s. Moses knew Abraham’s descindents would be led in many directions by false teachers with agendas. They’d yield to their fleshly inherited from Adam nature, imagining seeing angels etc. Moses knew the Israelites would devise gods to fit their carnal thinking. Worldly religions denominations don’t think of our Creator God in terms of, ‘One who chooses His followers.’

     (Matt 20:16; So the last will be first, and the first last. “For many are called but few are chosen.”) We need to meditate on the awesomeness of our Creator. Believers in Jesus are spirit led to believe in His faith, in the fact that God loves and has mercy on His chosen. He has the power to give physical life back to the dead; regardless of how long dead. He has the power to give back life to whom He will. He has the power to overthrow governments and usher in His Way. It’s good to think on and speculate about the things God plans to set right. Peter speaking on behalf of James, John and himself said the following.

      (2 Peter 1:16-21; For we did not follow cleverly concocted fables when we made known to you the power and return of our Lord Jesus Christ; no, we were eyewitnesses of His grandeur. For He received honor and glory from God the Father, when that voice was conveyed to Him by the Majestic Glory: “This is My dear Son, in whom I am delighted.” When this voice was conveyed from heaven, we ourselves heard it, for we were with Him on the holy mountain. Moreover, we possess the prophetic word as an altogether reliable thing. You do well if you pay attention to this as you would to a light shining in a murky place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. 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.)

      After Jesus’ resurrection His apostles still had various notions; they didn’t understand the scriptures until Jesus opened their minds and gave them their commission.

      (Luke 24:44-48; Then He said to them, “These are My words that I spoke to you while I was still with you, that everything written about Me in the law of Moses and the prophets and the psalms must be fulfilled.” Then He opened their minds so they could understand the scriptures, and said to them, “Thus it stands written that the Christ would suffer and would rise from the dead on the third day and repentance for the forgiveness of sins would be proclaimed in His name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things.”)

    If Jesus’ apostles needed a miraculous opening of their minds to understand the scriptures, how can the many denominations think they can teach His truth except it be gifted?  His apostles’ teaching was a continuance of Jesus’ teachings because of His revelations to them. Jesus’ righteousness, powers demonstrated, healings, re-creation of foods, and physically resurrecting Lazarus reveals His characteristics. Peter acknowledged with Moses, that false prophets arose among the Israelites of old and with Moses’ prophesies continuing in the last days.

     (2 Peter 2:1-3; 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.”)

      From the foundation of the world, our Creator knew the details that’d unfold in this age. He knew nations calling themselves Christian, would condone the very things that are an abomination to Him. Namely, denying His Sabbaths, condoning homosexuality, same sex marriages etc. Followers of Jesus were bought with the price of His blood; our Creator’s own blood. (See John 1:1-5 and review Colossians 1:15-20)

    This world’s professing Christians don’t know the Father nor Jesus the Son.

     (John 8:19; Then they began asking Him, “Who is your Father?” Jesus answered, “You do not know either Me or My Father. If you knew Me you would know My Father too.) Remember, Jesus is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation, for all things in heaven and on earth were created by Him

     Lucifer was a created angelic being who rebelled and led other angelic beings. Now he’s called Satan, the devil, the deceiver, prince of the power of the air and he’s god of Christian’s enemies. Satan’s fate is sealed and Jesus inspired Isaiah to write from the perspective that it is done. (To understand, know that,’ Sheol’ is the proper name of the subterranean world which is regarded as the land of the dead.)

     (Isaiah 14:9-21; Sheol, below is stirred up about you, ready to meet you when you arrive. It rouses the spirits of the dead for you, all the former leaders of the earth; it makes all the former kings of the nations rise from their thrones. All of them respond to you, saying: ‘You too have become weak like us! You have become just like us! Your splendor has been brought down to Sheol, as well as the sound of your stringed instruments. You lie on a bed of maggots, with a blanket of worms over you. Look how you have fallen from the sky, O shining one, son of the dawn! You have been cut down to the ground, O conqueror of the nations!)

     Jesus kicked Satan out of the heavenly realms and Jesus gave his disciples power over him. (Then the seventy-two returned with joy, saying, “Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name!” So Jesus said to them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.” Luke 10;17-18)

     (Isa 14:13-15; You said to yourself, “I will climb up to the sky. Above the stars of El. I will set up my throne. I will rule on the mountain of assembly on the remote slopes of Zaphon. I will climb up to the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High!” But you were brought down to Sheol, to the remote slopes of the pit. Those who see you stare at you they look at you carefully, thinking, “Is this the man who shook the earth, the one who made kingdoms tremble?” Is this the one who made the world like a desert, who ruined its cities, and refused to free his prisoners so they could return home? As for all the kings of the nations, all of them lie down in splendor, each in his own tomb. But you have been thrown out of your grave like a shoot that is thrown away. You lie among the slain, among those who have been slashed by the sword, among those headed for the stones of the pit, as if you were a mangled corpse. You will not be buried with them, because you destroyed your land and killed your people. The offspring of the wicked will never be mentioned again. Prepare to execute his sons for the sins their ancestors have committed. They must not rise up and take possession of the earth, or fill the surface of the world with cities.) This is the final fate of Satan and all who, after having Jesus revealed to them, refuse to obey.”
