Oracles of God, chapter 9

To:38,873 subscribers we pray God is making Temples of His spirit. 8/27/22, God’s 7h month, Elul 6 , 5,782. (The Sabbath, until sunset.

   It’s Jesus’ Sabbath, (See Matt 12:8)– Erroneous translations usually begin with assumptions or tradition, (such is the case at, (1John 5:6-8; “Jesus Christ is the one who came by water and blood – not by the water only, but by the water, blood. and Spirit. The spirit testifies because the Spirit is the truth. For there are three that testify, the Spirit and the water and the blood and these three are in agreement.”)

   (1John 5:6-8 should read; “This is He Who came by water and blood; Jesus the Christ: not by water only, but by water and blood. “And it is the spirit that bear witness because the spirit is the truth.” For there are three that bear witness on earth, the water, the blood: and these three witness unto the one truth.)

   We noted in last study that Paul baptized in the name of Jesus and “no apostle ever baptize in the name of the Holy Spirit”, additionally none ever included the Holy Spirit in their letter salutations. (The Infamous Comma Johanneum, known in the English-speaking world through the King James translation put this forth. “Most manuscripts (221 2318 [18th century] {2473 [dated 1634]} and [with minor variations] 429 629 636 918) originate from the 16th century; the earliest manuscripts, codex 221 (10th century) includes the reading in a marginal note, added sometime after the original composition.) “The error composed after Erasmus’ Greek New Testament was published in 1516. Back in A.D. 1215 a Greek translation of the Acts of the Lateran Council, was a work originally written in Latin). All the more significant since many a Greek Father would have loved such a reading, for it so succinctly affirms the doctrine of the Trinity. From there, it made its way into copies of the Latin Vulgate, the text used by the Roman Catholic Church. After his first edition appeared, there arose such a furor over the absence of the Comma that Erasmus needed to defend himself.)

    Faith must be rooted in history and spiritual revelations. Significantly the German translation of Luther was based on Erasmus’ second edition (1519) and lacked the Comma. When the spirit of truth isn’t leading translators, tradition takes precedence, leaning on superstition more than allowing scripture to interpret scripture. Assumption thinkers are in bondage to their fleshly inherited from Adam nature.

   (Jesus was fathered by His own and God the Father’s spirit, His human birth was by “water, blood and was fathered by the spirit of God.”)

   Many still vent such objections by rioting, mob violence etc. which is characteristic of people looking to their intellect and denominationalism. Additionally, when people don’t have meaningful work, idleness becomes bondage, ‘an obstacle to peace.’ The old saying may fit, “Idleness is the devil’s workshop.”    BACK TO ACTS OF THE APOSTLES and the rioting.

   (Acts 20:1-7; ”After the disturbance had ended, Paul sent for the disciples, and after encouraging them and saying farewell, he left to go to Macedonia. After he had gone through those regions and spoken many words of encouragement to the believers there, he came to Greece, where he stayed for three months. Because the Jews had made a plot against him as he was intending to sail for Syria, he decided to return through Macedonia. Paul was accompanied by companions who had gone on ahead and were waiting for us in Troas. We sailed away from Philippi after the days of Unleavened Bread, and within five days we came to the others in Troas, where we stayed for seven days.

   On the first day of the week, when we met to break bread, Paul began to speak to the people and because he intended to leave the next day, (second day) extended his message until midnight.) (They met on the day after the Sabbath, because Paul intended to leave on the second day after, so, Paul continued speaking on into that second day.)

   Using this text as authority to change God’s Sabbath to the first day is twisting, to one’s own destruction, as they also do to the rest of the scriptures. (See 2Peter 3:16)

    It’s clear to honest people, (a) God’s calendar was still being looked to, as referencing the days of Unleavened Bread. (b) There’s no reason not to teach on any day, however, in this case Paul is teaching much longer than usual, beginning on the Sabbath and continuing through the first day as it rolls over to the second day, because he intended to leave that day.

    Doctor Luke explains. (Acts 20:8-12; Now there were many lamps in the upstairs room where we were meeting. A young man named Eutychus, who was sitting in the window was sinking into a deep sleep while Paul continued to speak for a long time. Fast asleep, he fell-down from the third story and was picked up dead. But Paul went down, threw himself on the young man, put his arms around him and said, “Do not be distressed, for he is still alive.)

   Then Paul went back upstairs, and after he had broken bread and eaten, he talked with them a long time, until dawn, then he left. They took the boy home alive and were greatly comforted.) (We think Paul began speaking on the Sabbath, on through the first day and when the first day arrived spoke through until dawn, because the people kept showing interest.

    Israelites were mindful that each sunset began a new day.

    (Acts 20:13-17; We “Dr. Luke, Paul, and companions” went on ahead to the ship and put out to sea for Assos, intending to take Paul aboard there, for he had arranged it this way. He himself was intending to go there by land. When he met us in Assos, we took him aboard and went to Mitylene. We set sail from there, and on the following day we arrived off Chios. The next day we approached Samos, and the day after that we arrived at Miletus. For Paul had decided to sail past Ephesus so as not to spend time in the province of Asia, for he was hurrying to arrive in Jerusalem, if possible, by the day of Pentecost. From Miletus he sent a message to Ephesus, telling the elders of the church to come to him.”) It was after the season days of Unleavened Bread and before Pentecost. Pentecost being the birth date of “the New Testament Church of God” Paul placed importance on being in Jerusalem by Pentecost?

    (Acts 20:18-35; “When they arrived, Paul said to them, “You yourselves know how I lived the whole time I was with you, from the first day I set foot in the province of Asia, serving the Lord with all humility and with tears, and with the trials that happened to me because of the plots of the Jews. You know that I did not hold back from proclaiming to you anything that would be helpful, and from teaching you publicly and from house to house, testifying to both Jews and Greeks about repentance toward God and faith in our Lord Jesus. And now, compelled by the Spirit, I am going to Jerusalem without knowing what will happen to me there, except that the Holy Spirit warns me in town after town that imprisonment and persecutions are waiting for me. But I do not consider my life worth anything to myself, so that I may finish my task and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the good news of God’s grace.”

    (The gospel message is about “the kingdom’s coming, repentance toward God the Father and faith in our Lord Jesus’ deeds and grace.)

     “And now I know that none of you among whom I went around proclaiming the kingdom will see me again. Therefore, I declare to you today that I am innocent of the blood of you all. For I did not hold back from announcing to you the whole purpose of God. Watch out for yourselves and for all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God that He, God the Father” obtained with the blood of His own Son. I know that after I am gone fierce wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock. Even from among your own group men will arise, teaching perversions of the truth to draw the disciples away after them. Therefore, be alert, remember that night and day for three years I did not stop warning each one of you with tears. And now I entrust you to God and to the message of His grace. This message is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified, (set aside). I have desired no one’s silver or gold or clothing. You yourselves know that these hands of mine provided for my needs and the needs of those who were with me. By all these things, I have shown you that by working in this way we must help the weak, and remember the words of the Lord Jesus that He Himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”

    Paul said he taught the whole purpose of God. No doubt he shared Moses’ re-creation account of an earth in chaos, God creating Adam and from his rib, Created Eve. The Genesis account of Cain - Abel and how it is that Abel’s blood still speaks. Jesus through Moses, giving the ten commandments, the prophets telling of Jesus’ coming as the Messiah, His linage through David and the coming millennial reign as King of Kings. Explaining it was God the Father and God the Son’s will, that the Son shed His blood for the remission of sins. That there’s no forgiveness without the shedding of blood. No wonder Paul spoke until dawn on that second d
