Jesus’ Kingdom Good News, chapter 1

   T0: God’s In Resident Churches, His 10th Mo. Tivet 20, 5,781,  1/4/21

    We read from Corinthians 15: about praying for the dead, so what about that? Pray that when resurrected they’ll quickly respond to revealed truth and quick to abandon old indoctrinations. Satan and the many antichrist spirits will be bound, so accepting Jesus’ truth will come easier.

    In this age many antichrist spirits are leading the many religions, all twisting truth to fit various agendas. Jesus’ apostle John explains to Jesus’ followers, that every false way is led by an antichrist spirit.

    (1John 4:1-6; Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to determine if they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

    By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses Jesus as the Christ who has come in the flesh is from God, but every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God, and this is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming, and now is already in the world.

    You are from God, little children, and have conquered them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. They are from the world; therefore they speak from the world’s perspective and the world listens to them.

   We are from God; the person who knows God listens to us, but whoever is not from God does not listen to us. By this we know the Spirit of truth and the spirit of deceit.)

    Note the relationship between false prophets and spirits of the antichrist. It was the actual Creator Son of God manifest at John 1:1-5, Col 1:15-20 & Heb 1: who came in the flesh to reveal God the Father: as the sacrificial Lamb of God He willingly died and shed His blood for the remission of sin. He ascended and is now serving as the Mediator before the Father. The part Christendom omits about Jesus coming in the flesh is that He’s the One giving Moses the ten commandments, oracles etc. He’s the One who gave perpetual promises to Abraham regarding borders and his heirs’ future.

    Jesus set the kingdom stage; (Matt 8: 14-15; Now when Jesus entered Peter’s house, He saw his mother-in-law lying down, sick with a fever. He touched her hand, and the fever left her. Then she got up and began to serve them. When it was evening, many demon-possessed people were brought to Him. He drove out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick. In this way what was spoken by Isaiah the prophet was fulfilled: “He took our weaknesses and carried our diseases.“) See Isa 53:4 & Acts 8:7, antichrist spirits will be banned until the millennial end, and released for a short time for God’s ultimate purpose.

    (Rev 20:7-9: Now when the thousand years are finished, Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to deceive the nations at the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to bring them together for the battle. They are as numerous as the grains of sand in the sea. They went up on the broad plain of the earth and encircled the camp of the saints and the beloved city, but fire came down from heaven and devoured them completely.

Spiritual discerned.

     Jesus’ Revelations to John are spiritual to a spiritual people. Abominable conduct toward our Creator is revealed through Jesus’ apostle John, His prophets and each Believer. Through worldly education and false science Satan has the world opposed to Jesus’ doctrinal statements; making them appear offensive to all but the called. Denominational minded theologians are led by an antichrist spirit. Many offended people will tearfully turn, when their minds are opened to God’s Way.

   The denominational minded speak of their hope of a large, back to Jesus revival, but that isn’t likely according to Jesus‘ Words recorded by Matthew. Naturally God could supernaturally open minds of denominationally minded theologians in this age, but what’s certain is; the time is coming when the whole world will be taught Jesus’ Ways, while Satan and his angelic followers will be bound for a long season.

     In previous studies we’ve reviewed Paul’s instructions regarding dealings with Christians who turn from The Way. We’ve shared the seven doctrines, God’s churches are obligated to teach and practice, from Hebrews 6. But most organized religions don’t seem to be mindful, that Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. That Jesus is Lord, Re-creator, Creator, Redeemer, Mediator and coming King of Kings.

     At Deut 12:32-13:5; Jesus inspired Moses to write, “You must be careful to do everything I am commanding you. Do not add to it or subtract from it! Suppose a prophet or one who foretells by dreams should appear among you and show you a sign or wonder, and the sign or wonder should come to pass concerning what he said to you, NAMELY, “Let us follow other gods” – gods whom you have not previously known; “and let us serve them.” You must not listen to the words of that prophet or dreamer, for the Lord your God will be TESTING you to see if you LOVE Him with all your mind and being. You must follow the Lord your God and revere only Him; and you must observe His commandments, obey Him, serve Him, and remain loyal to Him. As for that prophet or dreamer, he must be executed because he encouraged rebellion against the Lord your God who brought you from the land of Egypt, redeeming you from that place of slavery and because he has tried to entice you from The Way the Lord your God has commanded you to go. In this way you must purge out evil from within.)

     The same Jesus revealing His Way to Moses inspired His apostle Paul and gave His revelations to His apostle John saying, ‘at the end of the coming millennial age, unrepentant persons will die a SECOND DEATH.

     (Revelations 2:11; “The one who has an ear had better hear what the Spirit says to the churches. The one who conquers will in no way be harmed by the second death.”) See and review Rev 21:7-8. We find the same principles at 1Cor 5:

     (1Cor 5:9-13; “I wrote you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral people. In no way did I mean the immoral people of this world, or the greedy and swindlers and idolaters, since you would then have to go out of the world. But now I am writing to you not to associate with anyone who calls himself a Christian who is sexually immoral, or greedy, or an idolater, or verbally abusive, or a drunkard, or a swindler. Do not even eat with such a person. For what do I have to do with judging those outside? Are you not to judge those inside? But God will judge those outside. Remove the evil person from among you.”) Paul’ meaning is; ‘do that sinful person and God’s Church right by removing such a person.

      (1 Cor 6:1-8; When any of you has a legal dispute with another, does he dare go to court before the unrighteous rather than before the Saints? Or do you not know that the Saints will judge the world? And if the world is to be judged by you, are you not competent to settle trivial suits? Do you not know that we will judge angels? Why not ordinary matters! So if you have ordinary lawsuits, do you appoint as judges those who have no standing in the church? I say this to your shame! Is there no one among you wise enough to settle disputes between fellow Christians? Instead, does a Christian sue a Christian, and do this before unbelievers? The fact that you have lawsuits among yourselves demonstrates that you have already been defeated. Why not rather be wronged? Why not rather be cheated?  But you yourselves do wrong and cheat, and you do this to your brothers and sisters!) Paul is saying, don’t be part of the world’s system of things.

    During the apostolic age and now, there’s ONE Church of God, unbelievers infiltrating and assuming leadership positions are of the antichrist mentality. The good news messages Jesus teaches Saints have little semblance to what’s being taught Christendom in this age. Believers IN Jesus, who conquers the flesh and Satan’s influences to the end, will rule with Jesus during His millennial reign. There will be no division!

    So let’s ask; in your wildest imagination, can you think there will be a revival to God’s Way before Jesus returns?  Be aware that all things are possible with God, but He has given certain prophesies about this end time age. Believers IN are praying that Jesus’ kingdom soon come. One of Jesus’ promises is, ‘for the Elect’s sake this age will be shortened.’

     Can’t we see that this world’s religions love the world’s status quo? The holy scriptures teach, ‘governments will actually fight against Jesus, His angels and Saints at His return, but His master plan will prevail!’

    (1Cor 6:9-11; Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived! The sexually immoral, idolaters, adulterers, passive homosexual partners, practicing homosexuals, thieves, the greedy, drunkards, the verbally abusive, and swindlers will not inherit the kingdom of God. Some of you once lived this way. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.)

    Christians in every age lived and practice ways they became ashamed of before God revealed Himself to them.

     The principle scriptural teaching is; ‘God does the calling, opens minds, gives repentance to, sanctifies, and justifies in the loving nature and name of Jesus Christ. By His fathering spirit, God the Father converts those He chooses. How awesome to know that we are God’s literal Children and heirs with Abraham.

Jesus revealed the same principles to John, Moses and Paul.

    (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.)

      How can assemblies calling themselves Christian, condone things that are detestable to our coming King? Allow Paul’s continuance.

     (1Cor 6:12; All things are lawful for me – but not everything is beneficial. All things are lawful for me – but I will not be controlled by anything.)

     Paul recognizes his maturity in Christ, and his actions were directed by his love for God’s Way, and mindful, that folks are controlled by their internal belief system. Believers in worldly traditions are controlled by them. Believers in a particular denomination are controlled by it. Atheist, are controlled by irrational human instinct. We don’t need to understand these things, just accept that through God’s gifted holy spirit and revelations, we belong to Jesus as ambassadors of and servants, it’s the only freedom that exist.
