The Family, chapter 10

     T0: 32,710 subscribers ‘Church of God teaching.’ God’s 3rd Mo, Sivan 14, 5,781, 5/25/21.

     Many assume God the Father’s laws, statues, and oracles, are more stringent than Jesus’, making the many feel comfortable practicing paganism, rather than adhering to His loving commandments, these not mindful that God the Father and God the Son are as One. We’re advised to let Jesus’ mind be in us.

      (Phil 2:5-11; You should have the same attitude toward one another that Christ Jesus had, who though he existed in the form of God did not regard equality with God as something to be grasped, but emptied himself by taking on the form of a slave, by looking like other men, and by sharing in human nature. He humbled himself, by becoming obedient to the point of death — even death on a cross! As a result God exalted Him and gave Him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow; in heaven, on earth, under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father.)

   Jesus’ is in fact the Lord God who said, ‘let us make man in Our image and likeness, ‘the same Lord God that communed with Adam and Eve.’ The One saying to Cain, ‘why are you angry, and your expression downcast? Is it not true that if you do what is right, you will be fine? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at the door. It desires to dominate you, but you must subdue it.’) The Lord God ‘Jesus’ spoke to Adam, Eve, Cain, Abel, Job and Noah is called ‘Jesus’ by His Father, the One saying, ‘all must be born of water and spirit’.

     (John 6:48-51; 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.)  Not all people using Jesus’ name as bread will live forever. Eating is partaking of and that’s Jesus’ subject. (The Lord God who purposely came as, ‘Jesus’ and ‘Lord’ in the flesh is the same deity that spoke to the Israel through His prophet Amos.)

   (Amos 5:24-27; Justice must flow like torrents of water, righteous actions like a stream that never dries up. You did not bring Me sacrifices and grain offerings during the forty years you spent in the wilderness, ‘family of Israel.’ You will pick up your images of Sikkuth, your king, and Kiyyun, your star god, which you made for yourselves and I will drive you into exile beyond Damascus, says the Lord.)

    To partake of ‘eat’ and ‘believe in’ Jesus, people must know how He manifested Himself to His apostles, and as He expects His people think of Him. Study Hebrews 1, John 1:1-5, and lets read Paul’s Colossians letter. (We aren’t apologetic about using these scriptures often, because people aren’t Believers in Jesus unless they know Him as He manifest Himself to be.)

   (Col 1:15-20; He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation, for all things in heaven and on earth were created by Him – all things, whether visible or invisible, whether thrones or dominions, whether principalities or powers – all things were created through Him and for Him. (Even God the Father’s creations were through Jesus and for Jesus.) He Himself is before all things and all things are held together (sustained) in Him. He is the head of the body, the church, as well as the beginning, the firstborn from among the dead, so that He Himself may become first in all things. For God was pleased to have all His fullness dwell in the Son and through Him to reconcile all things to Himself by making peace through the blood of His cross – through Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven.)

   With gifted faith, and lovingly obedient to this Jesus people have eternal life. Demonstrating Himself to be the Son of God, He created aged wine from water, healed diseased people, Re-Created bread and fish feeding thousands, walked on water, and resurrected Lazarus back to his formal physical life.

    Jesus suffered, died and was resurrected just at the prophets had written. After three nights and three days, women went to the tomb where Jesus was buried, then saw an angel, who said He was alive. Then some of those who were with us went to the tomb, and found it just as the women had said, but they did not see Him.

    (Luke 24:21-27; So Jesus said to them, ‘You foolish people – how slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken! Wasn’t it necessary for the Christ to suffer these things and enter into His glory? Then beginning with Moses and all the prophets, He interpreted to them the things written about Himself in all the scriptures.)

     Spiritual understanding is gifted to God’s chosen people, those given grace to love God the Father and God the Son as manifested to be. Few professing Christians, “even know how He is manifested to be.”

     The god of this age, ‘Satan’ wants people to think of Jesus as do pagans think of their gods. He deceives the majority with fleshly ambition to make the scriptures fit their motivated ideas. Jesus was looking to and through our time when He said; “Many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am He,’ and they will mislead many. Mark 13:6”

    It’s God’s plan, ‘few scholarly minded, wealthy and people with authority are gifted to understand spiritual truths. Called, followers of, and believers IN Jesus are gifted to know, ‘spiritual truths squares with God’s original inspired Words.’ Truthfulness isn’t popular as Jesus pointed out, and  Mark recorded at 13:6. Today’s Christendom populations have been taught to assume they can merely call on the name ‘Jesus’ and be saved.

    Thank God for His many revealed truths, particularly; (then I will turn to the people a pure language that they may call on the name of the Lord with one consent. Zephaniah 3:9).

    Thank God for Jesus’ promised return with a new government of peace on earth. Christians are praying that God speed that time. Praying too that some of the prophesied conditions, Jesus noted at Matthew 24: be cut very short. Otherwise, prior to Jesus’ return, unparallel suffering such as has never before been is coming. Study the whole chapter.

   (Matthew 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.) People fathered by God, those “born from above” will be changed to spirit life, and meet resurrected Saints in the air. (See 1Cor 15:)

     Evil of all sorts was rampant before the flood. Corruption of this earth’s populations is now very close to being as in Noah’s day. It could get worse, but rest assured, God our Father will shorten the time for His Elect’s sake. (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)

    Believers know, unbelieving people love this world’s system of things and believers know, demonic led false teachers are likely to do miraculous things ‘to deceive, if possible, even the Elect.’

     (Matt 24:9-14; Then they will hand you, over to be persecuted and will kill you. You will be hated by all the nations because of My name. Then many will be led into sin, and they will betray one another and hate one another. And many false prophets will appear and deceive many, and because lawlessness will increase so much, the love of many will grow cold. But the person who endures to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached throughout the whole inhabited earth as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come.) (WHAT END? End of the world? NO! End of Satan and his influence on earth? Yes.)

    People teaching, ‘a rapture to miss suffering and an immortality at birth doctrine, use Matt 24:41, and normally teach little about Jesus’ millennial rule on earth, Israelites deliverance to their former borders and the world looking to them for direction.

    The dead in Christ, partakers of Jesus’ way are to rise first, then the alive who’re fathered by God, ’born from above people’ will be changed quickly. Study 1Corinthians 15: to discern that Christians are praying, that God cutting time short will result in some prophecies being set aside.

    (1Cor 13:8-13; Love never ends. But if there are prophecies, they will be set aside; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be set aside. For, we know in part, and we prophesy in part, but when what is perfect comes, the partial will be set aside. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. But when I became an adult, I set aside childish ways. For now we see in a mirror indirectly, but then we will see face to face. Now I know in part, but then I will know fully, just as I have been fully known. And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.)

    At a times of God’s choosing, there’ll be physical resurrections, judgment, and a second death for those refusing to repent. When the millennial age ends, New Jerusalem with God the Father will come down. If anyone hears (understands) My words and does not obey them, I do not judge him. For I have not come to judge the world, but to save the world. The one who rejects Me and does not accept My words has a judge; the word I have spoken will judge him at the last day. John 12:47-48)

    (Revelations 21:7-8; 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.)

       May we be led to worship God the Father and God the Son as they’re manifested to be. May we yield to and be guided by His Holy Spirit imputed to our minds.
