God identifies Himself, Holy Ways & Seasons, chapter 5

To: People being made temples of God’s Spirit. (4/14/22, God’s 1st Mo. Nisan 13, 5,782 until sunset.) Today is the 14th  & before sunset is when Jesus was buried, in keeping with the first annual Sabbath beginning the 15th. . (The Jewish calendar has Friday the 14th day of Nisan, twilight starts days according to God’s calendar, thus the previous sunset began Passover. I don’t know why so many celebrate Passover the evening of the 14th, unless it’s to mimic others. (Lev 23:4-8; “‘These are the LORD’s appointed times, holy assemblies, which you must proclaim at their appointed time.  In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month, at twilight, is a Passover offering to the LORD. Then on the fifteenth day of the same month will be the Feast of Unleavened Bread to the LORD; seven days you must eat unleavened bread. On the first day there will be a holy assembly for you; you must not do any regular work. You must present a gift to the LORD for seven days, and the seventh day is a holy assembly; you must not do any regular work.’”) The book of Exodus supports. (Exodus 12:18; In the first month, from the fourteenth day of the month, in the evening, you will eat bread made without yeast until the twenty-first day of the month in the evening.) UNTIL THE 21ST WOULD SEEM TO AGREE WITH “keep seven days.” 14th through 20th completes 7 days, as some count, thus until 21st.

    (Cor 11:23-26; For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night in which He was betrayed took bread, and after He had given thanks He broke it and said, “This is My body, which is for you. Do this in remembrance of Me.” In the same way, He also took the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new covenant in My blood. Do this, every time you drink it, in remembrance of Me.” For every time you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes.) 

    We aren’t to dictate each person should celebrate according to scripture teachings, not denominational teaching.

   Israelites and Moses were frightened when the Lord God Jesus appeared and spoke. (Review Deaut 18:15) But spiritual Israelites, “who worship Jesus  in spirit and truth need not be frightened about prayerfully going before His spiritual Mt. Zion. The Hebrews writer explains to called believers.

   (Hebrews 12:22-29; But you (Christians) have come to Mount Zion, the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to myriads of angels, to the assembly and congregation of the firstborn, who ARE ENROLLED in heaven, and to God, the judge of all, and to the spirits of the righteous, who have been made perfect, and to Jesus, the mediator of a New Covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks of something better than Abel’s does. Take care not to refuse the One who is speaking! For if they did not escape when they refused the One who warned them on earth, how much less shall we, if we reject the One who warns from heaven? Then His voice shook the earth, but now He has promised, “I will once more shake not only the earth but heaven too.” Now this phrase “once more” indicates the removal of what is shaken, that is, of created things, so that what is unshaken may remain. So since we ARE RECEIVING an unshakable kingdom, let us give thanks, and through this let us offer worship pleasing to God in devotion and awe. For our God is indeed a devouring fire.)

       When followers of Jesus go before Him and God the Father to worship, it’s from their knowing the message. A result of being called and made one of His Elect. So different than when the Israelites stood before Mt. Zion hearing God’s voice. NOW, through Jesus and our being called to be at One with God the Father and God the Son, we’re permitted before spiritual Mount Zion, “the city of the living God, heavenly Jerusalem, and myriads of angels.” IN spirit led prayer we’re assembled with the congregation of the firstborn. “With those ENROLLED in heaven, (whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of life) to God, the judge of all, to the spirits of the righteous, who have been made perfect, to Jesus, the mediator of a New Covenant and to the sprinkled blood that speaks of something better than Abel’s does.”)

   The Patriarchs and followers of Jesus, “names are written in the Lamb’s Book of life.” More revealed to the apostle John.

   (Rev 5:6-10; Then I (John) saw standing in the middle of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the middle of the elders, and a Lamb that appeared to have been killed. He had seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth. Then He (Jesus) came and took the scroll from the right hand of the One, (God the Father) who was seated on the throne. When Jesus had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders threw themselves to the ground before the Lamb. (Jesus) Each of them had a harp and golden bowls full of incense (which are the prayers of the Saints). They were singing a new song: “You (Jesus) are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals because You were killed, and at the cost of Your own blood you have purchased for God persons from every tribe, language, people, and nation. You have appointed them as a kingdom and priests to serve our God, and they will reign on the earth.”)  All preplanned.

    New Jerusalem is going to come down as preplanned, it’s gates named for the twelve tribes of Israel and it’s foundation for His twelve apostles. Jesus revealed the city’s layout to John.

   (Rev 21:22-27; Now I saw no temple in the city, because the Lord God – the All-Powerful – and the Lamb are its temple. The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, because the glory of God lights it up, and its lamp is the Lamb. The nations will walk by its light and the kings of the earth will bring their grandeur into it. Its gates will never be closed during the day (and there will be no night there). They will bring the grandeur and the wealth of the nations into it, but nothing ritually unclean will ever enter into it, nor anyone who does what is detestable or practices falsehood, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life.”) All by design and preplanned.

   Theologians ‘people leaning on their own understanding in various divided denominations, have the world so confused, as they serve a divisive, confusing god of their imagination.’ Jesus’ apostle Paul explains about the false ones.

   (2Corinthians 11:12-15; And what I am doing I will continue to do, so that I may eliminate any opportunity for those who want a chance to be regarded as our equals in the things they boast about. For such people are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. Therefore it is not surprising his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness, whose end will correspond to their actions.)

   People condoning a mixture of beliefs, excuse it by saying “we’re all trying to get to the same place” but they will have their reward. God isn’t divided nor is His called out people. We have record of God setting limits on nation’s sinfulness, before removing and or punishing. (God told Abraham far in advance about his descendants inheriting the Amorites’ lands when their sins reached its limit.)

  (Genesis 15;13-16; Know for certain that your descendants will be strangers in a foreign country. They will be enslaved and oppressed for four hundred years. But I will execute judgment on the nation that they will serve. Afterward they will come out with many possessions. But as for you, you will go to your ancestors in peace and be buried at a good old age. In the fourth generation your descendants will return here, for the sin of the Amorites has not yet reached its limit.)

   These things are written for our learning and instruction. Keep in mind, (spiritually speaking) we’re individually in sin’s bondage likened to Israel’s to Egypt, until our inherited from Adam nature is supernaturally changed. Until we’re begotten of the Holy Spirit. People are allowed to go the way that seems right, (until God reveals Himself, calls, opens minds and grants repentance.) Giving Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Jebusites, and Girgashites’ lands to Israel as examples. All these went the way as those before the flood and as the world’s going today.

  (Exodus 3:16- Go and bring together the elders of Israel and tell them, ‘The Lord, the God of your fathers, appeared to me – the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob – saying, “I have attended carefully to you and to what has been done to you in Egypt, and I have promised that I will bring you up out of the affliction of Egypt to the land of the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites, to a land flowing with milk and honey.”’ “The elders will listen to you, and then you and the elders of Israel must go to the king of Egypt and tell him, ‘The Lord, the God of the Hebrews, has met with us. So now, let us go three days’ journey into the wilderness, so that we may sacrifice to the Lord our God.’ But I know that the king of Egypt will not let you go, not even under force. So I will extend My hand and strike Egypt with all My wonders that I will do among them, and after that he will release you.)

  God knew the Israelites would turn to paganism, once He allowed them to go the way that seemed right. Remember, (review) Nehemiah’s Israel’s history and God’s covenant with them, many years after God put them in bondage again; all for our learning. Isaiah also was led to write.

  (Isaiah 8:11-18; Indeed this is what the Lord told me. He took hold of me firmly and warned me not to act like these people: ‘Do not say, ‘Conspiracy’ every time these people say the word, don’t be afraid of what scares them; don’t be terrified. You must recognize the authority of the Lord who commands armies. He is the One you must respect; He is the One you must fear. He will become a sanctuary, a Stone that makes a person trip, and a Rock that makes one stumble – to the two houses of Israel. He will become a trap and a snare to the residents of Jerusalem. Many will stumble over the Stone and the Rock, (Jesus) and will fall and be seriously injured, and will be ensnared and captured.” Tie up the scroll as legal evidence, seal the official record of God’s instructions and give it to My followers. I will wait patiently for the Lord, who has rejected the family of Jacob; I will wait for Him. Look, I and the sons whom the Lord has given Me are reminders and object lessons in Israel, sent from the Lord who commands armies, who lives on Mount Zion.)

       The same Jesus that inspired Isaiah’s prophetic words, inspired His apostle Peter to share with called Believers.

  (1Peter 2:4-10; So as you come to Jesus, a living stone rejected by men but chosen and priceless in God’s sight, you yourselves, as living stones, are built up as a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood and to offer spiritual sacrifices that are acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For it says in scripture, “LookI lay in Zion a stonea chosen and priceless cornerstone, and whoever believes IN Him will never be put to shame.” So you who believe see His value, but for those who do not believe, the Stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone, and a stumbling-stone and a rock to trip over. They stumble because they disobey the Word, as they were destined to do. But you, are a chosen racea royal priesthooda holy nationa people of His own, so that you may proclaim the virtues of the One who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. You once were not a people, but now you are God’s people. You were shown no mercy, but now you have received mercy.”)

   Judaism and Christendom are tripping on Jesus’ Words. It isn’t theory, it’s the good news of the kingdom of God. We have record of God’s revealing, calling, retreating and allowing people go the way that seems right to their fleshly inherited nature. Facts are clear; when allowed to go the way that seems right, people instinctively manufacture gods of the imagination, divide and make merchandise of one another. People are like those before the flood and Sodom and Gomorra as Jesus predicted they’d be before His return.
