TO BE WITHOUT SIN IS ETERNAL LIFE-NOW!

 

Romans 12:1 & 2

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye

present your bodies a “Living Sacrifice” holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye “transformed by the renewing of your mind, (Why?) that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable and perfect “Will Of God.” As we undertake to understand why Paul said this, we will see that God created man with the ability to either do good, or the ability to do wrong, and through the choice to do wrong, man brings upon himself the curse of God’s law, build within God’s plan.

Man’s mind has been hidden from the truth of God’s plan, and by

choosing to not know God, and his laws, we have brought upon

ourselves, and our children, and our children’s children, curses

beyond our wildest imagination. We have opened the flood gates of hell and curses upon ourselves and upon our children, sickness,

torment, disease, and death. Oh the pain we have inherited. But only through turning from our wicked ways and seeking God’s will, can we be delivered from the torment of sin. As we look deeper into the renewing of the mind, we will see that it takes two things to gain God’s favor. One, knowing his will, which is his Word, and two, doing it.

 1 Peter 1:1-25

Peter an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the strangers, (You and me.)

scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and

Bithynia,

2) Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father; Through sanctification of the Spirit unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace and peace be multiplied unto you..

(Did you know that grace and peace could be multiplied?) 3)

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which,

according to his abundant mercy, hath begotten us” Again” unto a

lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4)To

an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled, and that fadeth not away,

reserved in heaven for you.( Reserved for who? You and me.)

5) Who (our inheritance.) Who are kept by the power of God (How?

) through faith unto salvation, ready to be revealed(When?) in the

last time. (Now.)

6) Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season( if need be )

ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:

7) That the trial of your faith, being much more precious then gold

that perisheth, though it be be tried with fire, (Spiritual fire.) might

be found unto praise, and honor, and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:

8) Whom having not seen, ye love, “in whom,” though now ye see

him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable, and full of

glory:

9) Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.

10) Of which salvation the prophets have inquired and searched

diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you:

11) Searching what, or what manner of time, (Or, when this should

happen and when.) the Spirit of Christ, which was in them did

signify, when it testified beforehand #1) the suffering of Christ, #2)

and the glory that should follow.( What was the glory that should

follow? The manifestation of the Sons of God and eternal life for all who complete the regeneration.)

12) Unto whom it was revealed that not unto themselves, (the

prophets of Old Testament) but unto -US. (You and me.) they did

(and do.) minister the thing which are now reported unto you by

them that have preached the gospel unto you, with the Holy Ghost (

Not Holy Spirit.) sent down from heaven, which things the angels

desire to look into.

13) Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind,( Or, study to show

yourselves approved unto God.) be sober and hope to the end, (The

end of your personal regeneration.) for the grace that is to be brought

unto you (How?) at the revelation of Jesus Christ:

14) As obedient children, (Obedient, part of the key.) not

fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts, (This is the

other part, knowledge.) in your ignorance:

15) But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all

manner of conversation;( It’s not impossible because God said it is

possible.)

16) Because it is written, Be ye holy; (why? ) for I am holy. (God

speaking.)

17) And if you call upon the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man’s work. pass the time of your sojourning here in fear:

18) Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with

corruptible things, as silver and gold, (Redeemed from what?)

Redeemed from your vain conversation, ( How did we get it? )

received by tradition, ( Who did we get it from? ) from your fathers;

19) Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with

corruptible things. as gold and silver, but with the preciuous blood

of Christ. as of a lamb without blemish and without spot,

20) Who verily was fore- ordained ( When?) before the foundation

of the world, but was manifested ( When ?) in these LAST TIMES ( For who? ) for you. (Or, for me and you.)

21) Who by him do believe in God, (Or, because of Jesus Christ’s

Spirit living in us, we are able to believe.) Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory;( Gave Jesus glory only.) that your faith and hope might be in God.

22) Seeing ye have; (past tense) purified your Souls ( How did

you purify your soul? )in obeying the truth through the Spirit

unto unfeigned (not counterfiet) love of the brethreng see that ye

love one another with a pure heart fervently; (How ?) ( By )

Being born again not of corrupible seed( Or, not by naturual

brith. ) but of incorrupible ( Spiritual born again.) by THE

WORD OF GOD, which liveth and abideth forever.

24) For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower

(Or, beauty) of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower (Or,

beauty) thereof falleth away:

25) But the word of the Lord endureth forever. (So if you

become the word of God, or, the Word made flesh, you, because

of the word that you live by, and are, shall endure FOREVER.       ( Death is swallowed up in victory.) And this is the word, which by

the gospel is preached unto you.

I Peter 2:1

I) Wherefore, (Or by the gospel being preached to you, this is where you start your regeneration process.) Wherefore laying aside all

malice( Desire to see others hurt.) and guile ( craftiness,

deceit, subtity,) and hypocrisiesg and envies, and all evil-

speaking,

2) As NEW BORN BABES, (What are we to desire?) desire the

sincere milk of the word, (Why?) that ye may grow thereby: (If

any of the above faults are in you, the word of God tells us you are a babe and have need of the milk of the word and not meat, or basic repentant.)

Reference:          Isaiah 28:9

9) Whom shall he teach knowledge? And whom shall he make

to understand doctrine? (Now he’s going to tell us who and how.)

them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the

breasts. (If a person is not willing to lay down the malice, guile,

hypocrisies, envy’s, and all evil speaking, this is as far as that person will get in spiritual growth and the Lord will send him strong delusion that he will believe a lie and be damned.)

2 Thessalonians 2:9-14

9) Even him, who’s coming is after the working of Satan, with all

power, and signs, and lying wonders,

10) And with all decievabliness of unrighteousness in them that

perish ( Why? ) BECAUSE THEY RECIEVED NOT THE

LOVE OF THE TRUTH, THAT THEY MIGHT BE SAVED.

11) And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that

they should believe a lie:

12) That they all might be damned (Why?) who believed not the

truth, (But what did they do?) but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

13) But we are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren

beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen

you to salvation (How?) “through”sanctification of the Spirit,

and belief of the truth:

14) Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the

glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

(I Peter 2:3 con’t)

3) If so be that ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious: (But if you

haven’t tasted you won’t have the compassion of the Spirit to do

anything else anyway, Pray for this tasting.)

4) To whom coming as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of

men, but chosen of God, and precious,

Referance:          Isaiah 28:10-22

10( For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line

upon line, line upon line; here a little and there a little:

11) For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to

this people.(This is speaking in tongues)

12) To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the

weary to rest: and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear.(

This is prophetic to Jesus’ day and to ours.)

13) But the Word of the Lord was unto them, precept upon precept,

precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; (Why? ) that they might go, and fall backward, and (1) be broken, and (2) snared, and (3) taken.

14) Wherefore hear the word of the Lord, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem.

15) Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death,

and with hell are we at agreement; (In their minds they have made

a covenant with ” the spirit of death” and in their minds they are

in agreement with “the laws of hell”.) when the overflowing

scourge (sent from God on the wicked.) shall pass through, it shall

not come unto us: (This is what their saying to themselves in their

minds.)( Why do they believe this (The answer.) for we have made

lies our refuse, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:

(This is what their spirit is saying to God.)

16) (And because they have done this by will, God is going to do

this.) Therefore thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I lay in Zion FOR

A FOUNDATION A STONE, A TRIED STONE, A PRECIOUS

CORNER STONE, A SURE FOUNDATION; he that believeth

shall not make haste.

17) (With this stone, what will he do ?) Judgement also will I lay

to the line, (plum line) and righhteousness to the plummet: and

the hail (Joshua 10:10-12 & Revelations 16:21 ) shall sweep

away the refuse of lies, and the waters shall overflow the

hidingplace. (God will reveal, by the Spirit, and his word, lies

in the minds of men.)

18) And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your

agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge

shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it.

19) From the time that it goeth forth it shall take you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be a

vexation only to understand the report. (Or, when he shall make you to understand doctrine.)

20) (God is now going to give us some examples of what he just

said, comparing his plan through the Spirit to-) For the bed is

shorter than a man can stretch himself on it; and the covering

narrower than that he can wrap himself in it.

21) (Now he is going to show us examples in his word if we still

don’t understand.) For the Lord shall rise up “as in mount

Perazim, (2 Samuel 5:17-20 & 1 Chron. 14:11) he shall be wroth

as in the valley of Gibeon, (Joshua 10:10-12, 2 Samuel 5:25, 1

Chron. 14:16 ) that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, ( The book of Acts), his strange act.

22) Now therefore be ye not mockers (* Why? ) lest your bands

be made strong: for I have heard from the Lord God of hosts a

consumption, even determined UPON THE WHOLE EARTH.

(Or, upon all man-kind,)

1 Peter 2:5 con’t.

Ye also, ( You and me) as lively stones, are built up a spiritual

house, an holy priesthood, (What for ? ) To offer up spiritual

sacrcfies, acceptable to God ” BY “Jesus Christ. (What does it

mean “by” Jesus Christ? It means the agreement of three

things. 1) The Father, 2) The Word, and 3) The Holy Ghost. 1

John 5:7 Authorized King James Version.

John 1:14

And the Word, (Jesus’ heavenly name.) was made flesh,

and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of

The only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

So we see that we are called to be priests of God, holy and sinless,

and our job is to offer up spiritual sacrifices unto God which are

acceptable unto him, and we do this only according to his Son, Jesus Christ, following his example.

1 Peter 2:6 con’t

Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Zion a chief corner stone, elect precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.

(lsaiah 28:7-11 )

7) Unto you therefore which believe, he is precious: but unto them

which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed,

the same is made the head of the corner. (Or, the exsample to

follow and be molded after.)

8) And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them

which stumble at the word, being disobedient: wherefore also they were appointed.

9) But ye (You and me.) are a chosen generation, a royal

priesthood, a holy nation, a picular people, (And what is God’s

purpose for allowing us to be this ? ) that ye should shew

forth the praises of him who hath called you OUT OF

DARKNESS (Darkness- no knowledge of God and his will.)

INTO HIS MARVELLOUS LIGHT:

10) Which in time pass (In the time pass in our own personal life.and in Old Testament.)

were not a people, but are now the people of God:

Which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy:

11) Dearly beloved, I beseech you, as strangers, and pilgrims, obstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul; (At this point we must ask ourselves the question, do I love this world, and all the sinful things in it, or am I willing to loose myself from the cares of this world and press toward the mark of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:1 – 18

1) Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you, to me indeed is not grievous but for you it is

safe.

2) Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, and beware of the

concision. (Concision- them that are cut off from God.)

3) For we (all whom believe what God has said and do it.) are the

circumcision, which worship God in the Spint, and rejoice in Christ Jesus’ and have no confidence in the flesh ( flesh-man’s wisdom and not God’s.)

4) Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other

man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more;

5) Circumcised the eighth day of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of

Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a

Pharisee;

6) Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the

righteousness, which is in the law, blameless.

7) But what things which were gain (important) to me, those I

counted loss for Christ.

8) Yea, doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the

excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: (This

knowledge is our key to health, and not having to taste of death.) for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them

but dung, (Why ?) that I may know Christ,

9) And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:

10) (What Paul is about to say here is that there is a” knowing “that

there is a power which we can obtain, and this power is the power of resurrection. With this power in us, death cannot take us, it is

powerless to touch any part of us, but this power is only obtained

through sinlessness.) That I may Know him, and “the power of

his resurrection,” and the fellowship of his suffering, being

made conformable unto his death:

11) If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.

12) Not as through I had already attained, either were already

perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that which also I

am apprehended of Christ Jesus.

13) Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this

ono thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and

reaching forth into those things which are before,

14) I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of

God “in” Christ Jesus.

15) Let us therefore,as many as be “Perfect” ( Or,  seeking

God’s calling to be as Christ Jesus.) be thus minded. (Or, think

as Jesus thought think it not robbery to be equal with God.) (In

looking at this passage, we see two things that stand out which are

the keys to obtaining eternal life in this life time. The first thing is

“the power of his resurrection” verse 10 and the other thing is

“being perfect.” The key to the first, lays in the second. BEING

LIKE JESUS “IS” THE POWER OF HIS RESURRECTION. To

understand this, we must look at another scripture;

 

 

 I Corinthians 15:53-56

53) For this corruptible “MUST” Put-on incorruption, and this mortal “MUST” Put-on immortality.

54)” So- when “(Or, after this is completed in you.) So when this

corruptible shall have “put-on” incorruptiong and this mortal shall

have “put-on” immortalalityg “THEN ” shall be brought to

pass the saying that is written., DEATH IS SWALLOWED UP IN VICTORY.

55) O death where is thy sting? O grave where is thy victory ?

( Now the understanding of what he just said.) The sting (Or power)

of death “is “sin; the strength of sin “is ” the law.

This is telling us that the thing that raised up Jesus from the dead

was him being sinless. And because he was sinless, Satan had no

power over him because of him being without sin. And by dying for our sins he gained the right to be our intercessor, and Great High Priest, and Judge, and Saviour, -IF- we accept him.

John 1:12

12)    But as many as received him, to them gave he ( What?)

“Power to become” Sons of GOD even to them that believe on

his name:

I Peter 2:11 con’t)

11)          Dearly beloved, I beseech you, as strangers and pilgrims,

obstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;

12)          Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles:

 (Gentiles- unbelievers, people who don’t know as we do.) that.,

whereas they speak against you as evil-doers, they may by your

good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of

Visitation.

13)          Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man (Why?) for

the Lord’s sake: whether it be to the king as supreme;

14)    Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the

punishment of evil-doers, and for the praise of them that do well.

15) For so is the will of God, that with well-doing ye may put

to silence the ignorance of foolish men:

16)    As free, and not using your liberty for a cloak ofmaliciousness, but as the servants of God.

17)          Honor all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor

the king.

18)          Servants, be subject to your masters with all fear; not only

to the good and gentle, but also to the froward.

19)    For this is thank-worthy, if a man for CONSCIENCE

TOWARD GOD endure grief, suffering wrongfully.

20)    For what glory is it, if; when ye be buffeted ( Corrected –

Punished.) FOR YOUR FAULTS.

ye shall take it patiently? but if; when ye do well, and suffer for

it, ye take it patiently, this is acceptable with God.

21) For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also

suffered for us, (And by doing that what did he do? )

LEAVING US AN EXAMPLE, THAT YE (Me and you)

SHOULD FOLLOW HIS STEPS:

22) Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:

23) Who when he was reviled, reviled not again, when he

suffered, he threatened not, but committed himself to him

that judgeth righteously:

24) Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree,

(Cross) that we, being dead to sins, should live unto

Righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

25) For ye were as sheep going astray; but are returned unto the

Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.

1 Peter 3:1

1) Likewise, ye wife’s, be in subjection to your own husbands;

that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the

word be won by the conversation of the wives;

2) While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with

fear.

3) Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of

plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of

apparel;

4) But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is

not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit,

which is in the sight of God of great price.

5) For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who

trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their

own husbands:

6) Even as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose

daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any

amazement.

7) Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge,

giving honor unto the wife’s as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life: that your prayers be not

hendered.

8) Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of

another: love as brethern, be pitiful, be courteous:

9) Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise,

blessing: knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit

a blessing. (What blessing is that? Health, ioy, and eternal life.)

10) For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his

tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:

11) Let him eschew evil (Or hate evil.) and do good: let him seek

peace, and ensue it.

12) (Why?) For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteousness, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is

against them that do evil.

13) And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that

which is good? (Nobody because there is no power but of God, and

the powers that be are ordained of God. Romans 13:1 & 2)

14) But, and if; ye suffer for righteousness’ sake, happy are ye; and

be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled;

15) But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear.

16) (The important of having a good conscience.) Having a Good

conscience,~ that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of

evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good

conversation in Christ.

17) For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for

well-doing, than for evil-doing.

18) For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the

unjust, (Whv ? ) that he might bring us to God, being put to

death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:

19) BY WHICH ALSO HE WENT AND PREACHED UNTO

THE ” SPIRITS IN PRISON ;”(HELL)

20) Which sometime were disobedient, when once the long suffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls, WERE SAVED BY WATER.

21) THE LIKE FIGURE-whereunto, even baptism, ( Spiritual

baptism) DOTH ALSO NOW SAVE US, (not the pitting away

of the filth of the flesh, but” the answer of a good conscience

toward God.) BY THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS

CHRIST: (Or, Jesus Christ resurrected in you through the living

Word. Through the living word being in you, and as you draw on

that word for guidance, as you follow that guidance you have a good conscience with God which is all God has ever asked of us, therefore the blessing of God is our reward. Joy health, and eternal life, because death and hell no longer has any more rights in our life.

22) Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God,

angels, and authorities, and powers being made sublect unto

him.

1 Peter4:1

1) Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm

yourselves likewise with THE SAME MIND: for he that hath

suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin; (One of the things we’ve

been made to believe is that we cannot be like Jesus, let along God,

but Jesus commanded us in Matthew 5:48 Be ye therefore perfect,

even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. Also in

Philippians 2:5 & 6: Let this mind be in you, which was also in

Christ Jesus: Who being in the form of God, thought it not

robbery to be equal with God. The mind that Jesus had was that-

he was a Son of God, and never did he say he wasn’t. He confessed

that he was a Son of God and this is also to be our belief and

testimony. We are sons of God and we are expected to be without

sin just as Jesus was. it tells us in 1 John 3:1-10: Behold what

manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called “THE SONS OF GOD”, therefore the world knoweth us not, (Why? ) because it knew him not.

2) Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear

what we shall be: but we know that when he shall appear, “WE

SHALL BE LIKE HIM ;”( When we first got saved, we didn’t

know the perfect will of God, but the first commandment of Jesus

was; to Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness,

and as we did that, God revealed to us who we are, and what we are, and what has happened to us. Also what we were going to have to do to be like him. Now a lot of people haven’t keep that

commandment and therefore they are still under Satan’s control

because they don’t understand ” spiritual” things, or, to put it another way, they haven’t studied to show themselves approved unto God and there not being blessed because their lives are still being lived in the ” dark side” and not in the “light side,” therefore their lives are still being cursed through the “law,”that their living under. God is the God of the living, not of the dead. God is the God of them who keep his commandments, not to them who brake them. Paul the Apostle said,1 Timothy 1:9; Knowing this that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murders of fathers, and murders of mothers, for manslayers, for whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, and for men-stealers, for liars, for perjured persons,

and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine,)

 

I John 3:2 con’t

for we shall see him as he is.

3) And every man that hath this “hope” in Him”, (If you have

this hope in you what do you do ? ) purifieth himself, even as

he is pure. (Do you have this hope in you?)

4) Whosoever ( Any one.) Whosoever committeth sin

trannsgresseth also the law,( Old testament law) (Why ?)

for sin (Is what ?) “is” the transgression of the law.

5) And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins;

and” in him ” is no sin.

6) Whosoever abideth in him (Does not do what ? ) sinneth

not: ( Or, any one that’s keeping the Word will not sin, and if your

keeping the word, your in him, and your in the Father, and your

manifesting the Father, who is love, through the Word, Jesus

Christ.) whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known

him.( It takes the word and a good and honest heart “to see” the

Father.)

7) Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth

righteousness is righteous, as he is righteous.

8) He that committeth sin IS OF THE DEVIL: for the devil

sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was

manifested, (For what purpose was Jesus manifested?) that he

might destroy the “works” of the devil.

9) Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; (Born of God

and born again of the Holy Ghost are different things.)

Why doesn’t some one who is born of God sin?) for his seed

remaineth in him: and he cannot sin ( Why?) because he is born of

God.

10) In this the children of God are manifested~ and the children of

the devil. (Or, here is how you can tell the children of God and

the children of the devil.) whosoever doth not righteousness is

not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.

So it tells us here that the way to tell if a person is a child of the

devil, or a child of God, is if your doing what the word of God tells

us to do, your of God. But if your not doing what the word of God

tells us, your of the devil. To better understand this we will look at

what Jesus said, John 14:23& 24

23) Jesus answered and said unto him, if a man love me, ( What

will he do ?) he will keep my words: and my Father will love

him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

24) He that loveth me not, keepeth not my sayings: and the

word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.

All the way thought God’s Word we see God saying to his people,

know me, know my will, but they refused. God even told them why they were being destroyed.

Hosea 4:6

6) My people are destroyed (Why?) for lack of knowledge:

because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee,

that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten

the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

So we see that because we have chosen to reject the laws of God,

God not only has rejected us, but also our children. Jeremiah 2:30

30)    In vain have I ( God speaking.) In vain have I smitten

your children: they receive no correction: your own sword hath

devoured your prophets, like a destroying lion.

in 2 Timothy 3:14-17 Pauls letter to Timothy tells us the importance of the scriptures and what they will accomplish if followed. But continue thou in the things, which thou hast learned and hast been assured of knowing of whom thou hast learned them;

15)    And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation ( How? ) through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

16)    All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for, (1)DOCTRINE, (2) FOR REPROOF, (3) FOR

CORRECTION, (4) FOR INSTRUCTION IN

RIGHTEOUSNESS:

17)          (Why?) That the man of God may be “PERFECT”,

THORUGHLY FURNISHED UNTO ALL GOOD WORKS.

Here we see the word “perfect” again, bearing witness to what Jesus said in Maffhew 5:48.

Again we will look at more scripture pertaining to the importance of the word of God. In the book of:

2Peter 1-11

1) Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them

that have obtained like precious faith” with us”, ( How?)

through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus

Christ:

2)          Grace and peace be multiplied unto you (How?), through the

knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, 3) According as his

devine power hath given unto us-ALL THINGS THAT PRETAIN

TO LIFE AND GODLINESS, (How ? ) through the knowledge of

him that hath called us (Where to?) to glory and virtue:

4)          Whereby (Or, through this knowledge) are given unto us

exceeding great and precious promises; (What are the promises

for?) that by these ye (You and me) might be partakers of

(What?) THE DIVINE NATURE, (Doing what?) having

exscaped the corruption that is in the world (How did we get into

this trouble?) through lust.

5)And besides this giving all diligence, add to your faith,

virtue; and to virtue, knowledge;

6) And to knowledge, temperance; and to temperance, patience;

and to patience, godliness; And to godliness, brotherly

kindness; and to brotherly kindness, charity. 

8) FOR IF THESE THINGS BE IN YOU, AND ABOUND, (What

will they do ?)THEY MAKE YOU THAT YE SHALL NEITHER

BE BARREN NOR UNFRUITFUL IN THE KNOWLEDGE

OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST.

9) (But what will happen if you don’t have these things in you?)

But he that lacketh these things IS BLIND, and cannot see afar

off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.

10) Wherefore the rather, brethern, give dileuence to make

your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, YE

SHALL NEVER FALL:

11) (And What else will it cause to happen to you?) For so an

entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into THE EVERLASTING KIMGDOM OF OUR LORD AND

SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

CHAPTER 2

 

WHAT DID JESUS SAY ABOUT DYING?

 

John 8:51

51) Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my sayings, he

shall never see death.

Yes Jesus said, if a man keep my sayings he shall never see death.

Do you dare believe this? Yes we must, or else we will die through

the sin of unbelief. Also in John 11 Jesus is talking to Martha

pertaining to her brother Lazarus who had died and Jesus again tells us about not dying.

26John 11:1-26

1) Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the

town of Mary and her sister Martha.

2) (It was that Mary which anointed the Lord with ointment,

and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was

sick.)

3) Therefore her sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he

whom thou lovest is sick.

4) When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto

death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be

glorified thereby.

5) Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus.

6) When he heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two days

still in the same place where he was.

7) Then after that saith he to his disciples, let us go into Judea

again.

8) His disciples say unto him, Master, the Jews of late sought to

stone thee; and goest thou thither?

9) Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any

man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the

light of this world.

10) But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, (Why?) because there is no light in him.

11) These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our

friend Lazarus sleepeth: but I go that I may awake him out of

sleep.

12) Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well.

13) Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he

had spoken of taking of rest in sleep.

14) Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead.

15) And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the

intent ye may believe, nevertheless let us go unto him.

16) Then said Thomas, which is called Didymus unto his

fellow-disciples, Let us also go, that we may die with him.

17) Then when Jesus came, he found that he had lain in the

grave four days already.

18) Now Bethany was nigh unto Jerusalem about fifteen

furlongs off:)

19) And many of the Jews came to Martha and Mary, to comfort

them concerning their brother.

20) Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming,

went and met him: but Mary sat still in the house.

21) Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here,

my brother had not died.

22) But I know that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God,

God will give it thee.

23) Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.

24) Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the

Resurrection at the last day.

25) Jesus said unto her, I AM THE RESURRECTION, AND

THE LIFE:( Jesus Christ, The Word of God, is the

Resurrection and the life.) he that believeth in me, though he

were dead, vet shall he live.

26) AND WHOSOEVER LIVETH, AND BELEIVETH IN

ME, SHALL NEVER DIE. BELEIVETH THOU THIS?

So we see that Jesus made it clear here that if your dead, you shall

live, but if your alive, and keep his sayings, you would never die.

So how does this take place in us? To start with, our mind is cursed

with sin, passed down to us from our forefathers before us. And

we’re condemned before we start, because the curse is in our genes.

So what has to be done is we need our minds renewed by the

washing of water by the Word of God, because in the brain is where all the trouble is. In the proverbs 4:20-23 My son, attend to my words, incline thine ear unto my saying.

Proverbs l4:2 I

Let them not depart from thine eyes, keep them in the midst of

thine heart.

Proverbsl4 :22

For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all

their flesh.

Proverbs 14:23

Keep thy heart with all diligence: (Why?) for out of it are the

issues of life.

Ephesians 5:26. We must go through the regeneration, the born

again process. Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of

incorruptible seed, by the Word of God. You may ask, how does

this effect our physical body? It has been proven that the human

mind only uses, at the most, 15% of it’s total capacity, so when we

accept Jesus as our Saviour, in our brain, something is triggered and opens up an opening to the rest of our mind. This is called “the

renting of the the vail.”2 Corinthians 3:1-18

1) Do we begin again to commend ourselves? or need we, as some

others, epestles of commendation to you, or letters of commendation from you?

2) Ye are our epistle written in our heart, known and read of all men:

3) Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not of stone, but in fleshly tables of the heart.

4) And such trusts have we through Christ to God ward:

5) Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of

ourselves, but our sufficiency is of God;

6) Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not

of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit

giveth life. (The Spirit giveth life.)

7) But if the ministration of death ( The law of the old testament.)

written and engraved in stone, was glorious, so that the children of

Israel could not steadfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away:

8) How shall not the ministration of the Spirit be rather glorious?

(Paul here is telling us that in old testament the vail of the mind was not rent, therefore the only thing the people could do was” try” and keep the law. They could’nt be perfect as us because Jesus hadn’t come yet. Moses was allowed to see the glory of Jesus Christ and therefore it changed his countenence so he had to put a vail over his face as an exsample for us in this day about the vail of the mind.)

9) For if the ministration of condemnation be glory, much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory.

10) For even that which was made glorious had no glory in this

respect, by reason of the glory that excelleth.

11) For if that which is done away was glorious much more that

which remaimeth is glorious.

12) Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of

speech.

13) And not as Moses, which put a Vail over his face, that the

children of Israel could not steadfastly look to the end of that which is abolished:

14) BUT THEIR MINDS WERE BLINDED: FOR UNTIL

THIS DAY (NOW-TODAY) FOR UNTIL THIS DAY

REMAINETH THE SAME VAIL UNTAKEN AWAY IN THE

READING OF THE OLD TESTAMENT; WHICH VAIL IS

DONE AWAY IN CHRIST.

15)    But even unto this day, when Moses is read, THE VAIL

IS UPON THEIR HEART. (NOTE: HEART.)

16) Nevertheless, when it (the heart.) shall turn to the Lord,

the vail shall be taken away.

17) Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is,

there is liberty.

18) But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass (or, a mirror)

the glory of the Lord, are changed INTO THE SAME IMAGE

FROM GLORY TO GLORY, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

2 Corinthians 4:1-6

1) Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received

mercy, we faint not;

2) But “have” renounced the hidden things of dishonesty: not

walking in craftiness: nor handling the word of God deceitfully:

but by “manifestation of the truth”, commending ourselves to every

man’s conscience in the sight of God.

3) BUT IF OUR GOSPEL BE HID, IT IS HID TO THEM

THAT ARE” LOST”.

4) In whom the God of this world (Satan) hath blinded the

minds of them which -“BELIEVE NOT”, lest the light of the

glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine

upon them.

5) For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

6) For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and

ourselves your servants for Jesus sake.

So we see that before we came to the Lord, we were blinded

by Satan in our minds. That is his job, to lie to us and make us

believe that there is no God and this world is all there is. But when

ever we turn to the Lord and gave our heart to Jesus, God lifted the

Vail in our minds and now we can use all of our brains instead of

just 15%.

This Vail that is lifted, does not mean that we know all things at

once, but it allows us to learn in ways that we never could before.

Let us also look at what Jesus said about this and how it pertains to

our healing, Not only of our minds, but of our bodies. Matthew

13:10-17

10) And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou

unto them in parables?

11) He (Jesus) answered and said unto them, Because it is given

unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to

them it is not given. (Why? because they don’t want to hear

that their doing wrong.)

12) For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have

more abundance: but whosoever bath not, from him shall be

taken away even that he bath.

13) Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing,

see not; and hearing, they hear not; neither do they understand

l4) And in them is fulfilled the prophesy of Esalas, (Isaiah ) which

saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:

15) For this peoples “heart” is waxed gross, and their ears are

dull of hearing, and their eyes THEY HAVE CLOSED; lest at

any time, they should see with their eyes, and hear with their

ears, and should understand with their heart, AND SHOULD

BE CONVERTED, AND I SHOULD “HEAL THEM”.

16) But blessed are” your eyes”, for they see: and” your ears,”

for they hear.

17) For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things, which ye hear, and have not heard them.

Here Jesus is plain in saying that through believing a lie and

chosing to not walk in righteousness, is the reason we are sick and

or bound by Satan. In John 8:31-32, Then said Jesus to those Jews

which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my

disciples indeed;

32) And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you

free.

Through the word is the way we get the truth. Without the word we

cannot find the truth, This is God’s plan that no one comes to the

Son, Jesus Christ the Word of God, unless the Father draws us to

him, and no one is revealed the Father unless Jesus the Word,

reveals him to us.

David also tells us in Psalms 119:67 Before I was afflicted I went

astray: but now have I kept thy word.

Also in Psalms 119:71 It is good for me that I have been

afflicted; (Why?) that I might learn thy statutes. Also in Psalms

119:75 , I know, 0 Lord, that thy judgments are right ( righteous ),

and that thou in faithfulness hast afflicted me.

In Psalms again God himself tells us something about ourselves. Psalms 82:6-7

6) I (God speaking) have said, Ye are Gods, and all of you

are children of the Most High.

7) But ye shall die as men, and fall like one of the princes. So

God is encouraging us to believe who, and what we are. This is

demanded that we believe and confess that we are his children. He

also demands that we be perfect, righteous, and holy. Something we refuse to believe. But to obtain it we must go against what we feel, and believe what God has said about us. Let us look at some other scriptures that pertain to life eternal.

Proverbs 10:2

2) Treasures of wickedness profit nothing: but righteous (Do

what? ) delivereth from death.

Proverbs 11:4

4) Riches profit not in the day of wrath: but righteousness

delivereth from death.

Proverbs 12:28

28) In the way of righteousness is life; and in the pathway

thereof there is no death.

Proverbs 13:14

14) The law of the wise is a fountain of life, (What for?) to

depart from the snares of death. Proverbs 14:27

27) The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, to depart from the

snares of death.

Proverbs 18:21

21) Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that

love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

Hosea 13:14

14) I will ramson them from the power of the grave; I will

redeem them from death: 0 death, I will be thy plagues, O

grave, I will be thy destruction.

John 5:14-31

14) Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him,

Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come

unto thee.

15) The man departed, and told the Jews that it was Jesus which had made him whole.

16) And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slaw

him, because he had done these thing on the Sabbath-day.

17) But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hither to,

and I work.

18) Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him (Why?) because he had not only had broken the sabbath, but said also, that

God was his Father, making himself equal with God.

19) Then answered Jesus, and said unto them, Verity, verity, I

say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he

seeth the Father do: what things so ever he doeth, these also the

Son likewise,

20) For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things

that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than

these, that ye may marvel.

21) For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth

them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.

22) For the Father judgeth no man; but hath committed all

Judgment unto the Son: (Why?)

23) That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the

Father. He that honoureth not the Son, honoureth not the Father

which hath sent him.

24) Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word,

and believeth in him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and

shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death

unto life.

25) Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and

now is, when the. dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God,

and they that hear shall live.

26) For as the Father hath life in himself, so hath he given to

the Son to have life in himself;

27) And hath given him authority to execute judgement also,

because he is the Son of man.

28) Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all

that are in the graves shall hear his voice,

29) And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the

Resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, to the

Resurrection of damnation.

30) I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear I judge: and my

Judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will

of the Father which hath sent me.

31) If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.

Romans 5:8-21

8) But God commented his love toward us, in that while we

were yet sinners, Christ died for us,

9) Much more than, being now justified by his blood, we shall

be saved from wrath through him.

10) For if when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by

the death of his Son; much more, being reconciled, we shall be

saved by his life.

11) And not only so, but we also joy in God, through our Lord

Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.

12) Wherefore as by one man sin entered into the world, and

death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have

sinned.

13) (For until the law, sin was in the world, but sin is not

imputed where there is no law.

14) Nevertheless, death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over

them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adams

transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.

15) But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through

the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God,

and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath

abounded unto many.

16) And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift. For the

judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many

offences unto justification.

17) For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more

they which receive abundance of grace, and of the gift of

righteousness, shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.) Verses 13-

17 is one incert.)

1 8) Therefore, as by the offence of one, judgment came upon all

men to condemnation, even so by the righteousness of one the

free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.

19) For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners,

so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.

20) Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound.

But where sin abounds, grace did much more abound:

21) That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace

reign through righteousness unto eternal life (How?) by

Jesus Christ.

2Timothy 1:8-11

8) Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our

Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the

afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God;

9) Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not

according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace,

which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began

10) But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Savior Jesus

Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and

immortality to light through (What ?) the gospel:

11) Whereunto I am appointed a preacher, and an apostle and a

teacher of the Gentiles. (1) Paul was appointed a preacher, (2) He

was appointed an apostle by God to us. (3) Paul was appointed to be a teacher to us by God.)

Hebrews 11:5

5) By faith Enoch was translated, that he should not see death; A

and was not found, because God had translated him: ( What reason

did God have for translating him ?) for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.

 James 1:12-15

12) Blessed is the man that endureth tempation: for when he is

tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath

promised to them that love him.

13) Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God:

for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempted he any man:

14) But every man is tempted, (When ) when he is drawn

away of his own lust, and enticed. (His own lust is in him, But

the enticement comes from satan speaking to our mind.)

15) Then, when lust hath conceived, (Or, when we agree with

what Satan is telling us.) Then, when lust hath conceived, it

bringeth forth sin; and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth

death.

I John 3:14

14) We know that we have passed from death unto life (How can we know?) BECAUSE WE LOVE THE BRETHREN. HE THAT

LOVETH NOT HIS BROTHER, ABIDETH IN DEATH.

 

 

CHAPTER THREE

THE RENEWING OF THE MIND

 

Proverbs 4:23

23)    Keep thy heart.with all diligence; (Why?) for out of it are

the issues of life. (Or, out of your mind is the place where life and

death come out. Or, what we believe in our heart, is what we are.)

Proverbs 4:20-22

20)    My son attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my

sayings,

21) Let them not depart from thine eyes, keep them in the

midst of thine heart. (Why?)

22)    For they ( God’s words) are life unto those that find them,

and health to “all” their flesh.

As we look at man and his make-up, we will see that God

created him in his own image, and in the beginning, man had eternal life with God. There was no death in the garden of Eden. it wasn’t until Adam partook of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil did he lose his right to life. God made the statement in Genesis 3:22-

And the Lord God said, Behold the man is become as one of us,

to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and

take also of the tree of life, and eat and live forever:

23) Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.

24) So he drove out the man: and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubim’s, and a flaming sword which turned every way,

to keep the way of life.

God said that if he put forth his hand, he could partake of the

tree of life. In the book of Proverbs, it also speechs of the tree of

life and how to obtain it.

Proverbs 3:13-18

13)          Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man

that getteth understanding.

14) For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of

silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold.

15) She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou

canst desire are not to be compared unto her.

16) Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand

riches and honor.

17)    Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths

ARE PEACE.

18) She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and

happy is every one that retaineth her.

Proverbs 11:30

30) The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life: and he that

winnest souls is wise.

Proverbs 12:28

28) In the way of righteousness is life; and in the pathway

thereof there is no death.

So we have seen that to have your mind renewed is the key to eternal life. Wisdom, She is the tree of life spoken of in the garden of Eden and is the Spirit that quickens us out of a deep sleep into a life walk with all of creation. This is what Jesus meant in Luke when he said,

Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creators.

HOW OUR SYSTEM WORKS

The system is made up of a controller, which is the brain. This is

where our “spirit” controls our flesh. The brain sends impulses to the endocrine glands of our body. Endocrine glands pour secretions

directly into the blood stream. These secretions, known as hormones, serve as a means of long-distance control, enabling the body to coordinate its internal activities.

The brain here is what we’re dealing with because the brain is where God has chosen to work his work in our bodies.

Each gland in our body is a slave to what ever the brain tells it to do.

Each gland has a special part to play in our health and well being,

but cannot work independently by itself, it has to have all the other

parts of the system to operate correctly, But unless they receive the

right signals from the brain, they cannot operate perfectly. This is

the way God has chosen for it to work, and no matter what, man can only work with what God has allowed him to work with. He cannot create any thing new. This is way it is so important to understand that the brain has to be renewed according to the truth, which is the word of God.

Laying in our sub-conscience mind is the knowledge, that we are

sinners. This knowledge is also in our genes. Cloning has proved

that. Not only in God’s eyes, but in our own, and there is no way,

without the truth, to cleanse our conscience of the knowledge that we do not have communion with God.

In our make-up, this is very important because God has made us in His image, therefore because God has a conscience and cannot lie, this also is part of our make-up. It tells us in Hebrews that by two immutable things it’s impossible for God to lie, and these two things are:

Hebrews 6:13-20

13) For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could

swear by no greater, he sware by himself,

14)          Saying,( 1) Surely blessing I will bless thee, and

(2)multiplying, I will multiply thee.

15) And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the

promise.

16) For men verily swear by the greater: and an oath for

confirmation is to them an end of all strife.

17) Wherein God, willing more abundantly to show unto (us) the

heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath:

18) That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible

for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, (hope) who

have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us:

19) Which hope we have as an anchor to the soul, both sure

and steadfast, and which entereth into that within the vail;

 20) Whether the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an

high priest forever after the order of Meichisedic.

As we look at the full plan of God, and understand his intent, we see that God looks on the heart of man and sees mans intentions weather it be good, or weather it be bad.

In the book of Hebrews we see a warning from God about unbelief, and gives us examples of some bible unbelievers. Hebrews 2:1

1) Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the

things which we have heard, (Why?) lest at any time we should

let them Slip,

2) For if the word spoken by angels was steadfast, and every

transgression and disobedience received a just recompense of

reward:

3) How shall we escape, if we negect so great salvation, which at

the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;

4) God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders,

and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according

to his own will?

5) For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the world

to come whereof we speak.

6) But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that

thou art mindful of him?

7) Thou makest him a little lower than the angels, thou

crownedst him with glory and honor, and didst set him over the

works of thy hands:

8) Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For in

that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is

not put under him. (or, everything made, including death, hell,

sickness, etc. ) But now we see Jesus, who was made a little

lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with

glory and honor: that he by the grace of God should taste death

for every man.

10) For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom

are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the

Captain of their salvation perfect through suffering.

11) For both he that sanctifieth, and they who are sanctified,

are all of one: (We are one, Christ and us.) for which cause he

is not ashamed to call them brethern,

12)          Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the

midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.

13) And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold, I, and the children which God hath given me.

14) Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood,

he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death

he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the

devil;

15) And deliver them, who, through fear of death, were all their

life-time subject to bondage.

16) For verily he took not on him the nature of angels, but he took

on him the seed of Abraham.

17) Wherefore in all things it behooved him to be made like unto his brethren: that he might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in

things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the

people.

18) For in that he himself hath suffered, being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.

Hebrews 3:1

1) Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling,

consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus;

2) Who was faithful to him that appointed him, as also Moses was

faithful in all his house.

3) For this man was counted worthy of more glory than Moses,

inasmuch as he who hath builded the house, hath more honor

than the house.

4) For every house is builded by some man, but he that built all

things is God.

5) And Moses verily was faithful in all his house, as a servant,

for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken after.

6) But Christ as a Son over his house: whose house are we, if

we hold fast the confidence, and the rejoicing of the hope

firm unto the end.

7) Wherefore, as the Holy Ghost saith, To-day, if ye will hear

his voice,

8) (Here is the warning.) HARDEN NOT YOUR HEARTS,

AS IN THE PROVOCATION, IN THE DAY OF

TEMPTATION IN THE WILDERNESS:

9) WHEN YOUR FATHERS TEMPTED ME, PROVED

ME, AND SAW MY WORKS FORTY YEARS.

10) Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said,

They do always err in their heart; and they have not known

my ways.

11) So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my

rest.

12) Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil

heart of unbelief in departing from the living God.

13) But exhort one another daily, while it is called Today;

lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.

14) For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the

beginning of our confidence steadfast unto the end;

15) While it is said, Today if ye will hear his voice, harden

not your hearts, as in the provocation.

16) For some, when they had heard, did provoke; howbeit, not all

that came out of Egypt by Moses.

17) But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with

them that had sinned, whose carcasses fell in the wildereness?

18) And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his

rest, but to them that believeth not?

19) So we see that they could not enter in (Why?) because of

unbelief.

Hebrews 4:1

4:1) Let us therefore fear, lest a promise being left us of

entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of

it.

2) For unto us was the gospel preached as well as unto them:

but the word preached did not profit them, (Why?) not being

mixed with faith in them that heard it,

3)For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I

have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest;

although the works were finished from (When?) the foundation

of the world.

4) For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this

wise, And God did rest the seventh day from “all” his works.

5) And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest.

6) Seeing, therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein,

and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief:

7) (Again, he limited a certain day, saying in David, Today,

after so long a time, as it is said, To-day, if ye will hear his

voice, hardeb not your hearts.

8) For if Jesus (Joshua) had given them rest, then would he not

afterward have spoken of another day.

9) There remaineth therefore a rest (keeping of a sabbath) to

the people of God.

Hebrewsl4: 10

For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his

own works, as God did from his.

Hebrewsl4: 11

Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man faIl

after the same example of unbelief.

 Hebrewsl4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edued sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Hebrews l4: 13

Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight:

but all thing are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with

whom we have to do.

Hebrews|4: 14

Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into

the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.

Hebrewsl4: 15

For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with

the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like

as we are, yet without sin. Hebrews 4:16

Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we

may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

So we see here that God has given us the strongest warning

possible so that we might be warned about, not only going to

heaven, but, our health, our family, our live-stock, our very

being depends upon knowing and believing what God has said.

So, as we study the word of God, this scripture has just told us that

the word of God is-a discerned of the thoughts and the intent of the

heart. If; in our heart, we have the wrong desire, God will feed that

desire and cause you to be taken in a trap and snare to cause you to

fall. This is called; strong delusion, and the end of that, as we follow it, will be trouble. And when ever we follow after that delusion, that God is allowing us to believe, God allows us to go so far, and then there is a price to be paid, and if we don’t learn from that and insist upon following after our own lust still, God will allow it just so long and then we are taken out of this world by death. (John 15:2) There is no way we can con our way into heaven.God knows and sees everything. So when we come to the

Lord, willing to learn from him, and willing to change what we

Believe, into what he wants us to believe, we will be conformed into his image.

 

 

 

 

 

CHAPTER 4

 

OUR THOUGHTS AND HOW SATAN USES THEM

AGAINST US.

 

John 10:10

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to

destroy. I am come that they might have life, and that they

might have it more abundantly.

 

SPIRITUAL WARFARE

Ephesians 6:10-24

Ephesiansj6: 10

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power

of his might.

Ephesiansl6: 11

Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand

against the wiles of the devil.

Ephesiansl6: 12

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against

principalities,  against powers, against the rulers of

The darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high

places. Ephesians|6: 13

Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may

be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to

stand.

Ephesiansl6: 14

Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and

having on the breastplate of righteousness:

 Ephesians|6: 15

And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace,

Ephesiansl6: 16

Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able

to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

Ephesians|6: 17

And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit,

which is the word of God:

Ephesians|6: 18

Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit,

and watching there unto with all perseverance and supplication

for all saints;

EphesiansI6:19

“””””And for me, (Why are we to pray for Paul?) that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,

Ephesians|6 :20

For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may

speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

Ephesians|6:2 I

But that ye also may know my affairs, and how I do, Tychicus, a

beloved brother and faithful minister in the Lord, shall make

known to you all things: (In the “Spirit”.)

Ephesians|6 :22

Whom I have sent unto you for the same purpose, that ye

might know our affairs, and that he might comfort your hearts.

Ephesians|6 :23

Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father

and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Ephesians|6 :24

Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in

sincerity. Amen.

So it tells us here that our warfare isn’t with something we can see,

but with things we cannot see. Principalities, powers, rulers of

darkness, and spiritual wickedness in high places.

Let us look at what God says about where we were before we were

delivered from darkness.

Ephesians 2:2-3

2) Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of

this world, according to the prince of the power of the air,

(Satan) the spirit that now worketh in the children of

disobedience:

3) Among whom also “we all had” our conversation in time

past in the lusts of our flesh, fufilling the desires of the flesh and

of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as

others. But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore

sober, and watch unto prayer.

1          Peter|4:8

And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves:

for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.

1 Peter|4:9

Use hospitality one to another without grudging.

1 Peter|4:10

As every man hath received the gift, even so ministereth (the)

same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of

God.

1 Peter|4:1I

If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any

man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth:

(Why?) that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus

Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever.

Amen.

1 Peterl4:12

Beloved, think it not strange concerning the “fiery trial” which

is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:  

1 Peter|4: 13

But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that when his glory shall be revealed,” ye” may be glad also with

exceeding by.

1 Peter|4:14

If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are “ye” for

the”Spirit of glory” and of God resteth upon you: on their part

he is evil spoken of; but on your part he is glorified. But let none of

you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a

busybody in other men’s matters.

 

1 Peter|4:16

Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed;

but let him glorify God on this behalf.

I Peter|4:17

For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of

God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them

that obey not the gospel of God?

I Peter|4:18

And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly

and the sinner appear?

1 Peter|4:19

Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing as unto a faithful CREATOR.

IPeter 5:1

The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder,

and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the

glory that shall be revealed:

I Peter|5:2

Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight

thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but

of a ready mind;

I Peterl5:3

Neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being ensamples to the flock.

I Peter| 5:4

And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of g1ory that fadeth not away. (This is Eternal life now.)

I Peter|5:5

Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all

of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility:

for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.

I Peter|5:6

Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God,

that he may exalt you in due time:

I Peter|5:7

Casting “all” your care upon him; for he careth for you.

I Peter 5:8

Be sober, be vigilant;” because” your adversary the devil, “as a

roaring lion”, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

I Peterl5:9

Whom resist stedfast” in the faith”, knowing that the same

afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the

world.

I Peter|5:1O

But the God of all grace,” who hath called” us unto” his eternal

glory” by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make

you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle “you”.

How did Satan lie to us? Through out mind. He tempted us. Before

we knew about him, he spoke to us, and we though it was our own

voice speaking to our minds. Little did we know that he was taking

over our life to destroy it.

James 1:12-15

Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is

triedg he shall receive the crown of life”,(Eternl life!) which the

Lord hath promised to them that love him.

James|l:13

Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God:

for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any

man:

Jamesll:14

(So Here’s how it works.) But every man is tempted, when he is

drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. (Satan does the

enticing.)

Jamesll:15

Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeith forth sin: and sin,

when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

So how can we stop this attack on our minds?

Corinthians| 10:3

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:

2 Corinthians| 10:4

(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal,but mighty

through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)

2 Corinthians| 10:5

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth

itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity

every thought to the obedience of Christ; (Christ the Word of God. Spirit and Truth!)

 2 Corinthians|| 10:6

And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedienceg when

your obedience is fulfilled.

(Or, if you slip and give-in to Satan, once you notice you have given in, correct what ever it is he has caused you to do. If he has caused you to tell a lie, go back and tell the truth. If he has caused you to steal, take it back and make it right.

 

Acts 26:1

Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Thou art permitted to speak for thyself. Then Paul stretched forth the hand, and answered for

himself:

Acts|26 :2

I think myself happy, king Agrippa, because I shall answer for

myself this day before thee touching all the things whereof I am

accused of the Jews:

Acts|26:3

Especially because I know thee to be expert in all customs and

questions which are among the Jews: wherefore I beseech thee to

hear me patiently.

Acts|26 :4

My manner of life from my youth, which was at the first among mine own nation at Jerusalem, know all the Jews;

 ActsI26:5

Which knew me from the begining, if they would testify, that

after the most straitest sect of our religion I lived a Pharisee

.

ActsJ26:6

And now I stand and am judged for the hope of the promise

made of God unto our fathers:

Acts|26:7

Unto which promise our twelve tribes, instantly serving God

day and night, hope to come. For which hope’s sake, king

Agrippa,I am accused of the Jews.

Acts|26:8

Why should it be thought a thing incredible with you, that God

should raise the dead?

Acts|26:9

I verily thought with myself; that I ought to do many things contrary to the name of Jesus of Nazareth.

Acts26: 10

Which thing I also did in Jerusalem: and many of the saints did I

shut up in prison, having received authority from the chief priests;

and when they were put to death, I gave my voice against them.

Actsl26: 11

And I punished them oft in every synagogue, and compelled them to blaspheme; and being exceedingly mad against them, I persecuted them even unto strange cities.

ActsI26: 12

Whereupon as I went to Damascus with authority and commission

from the chief priests,

ActsI26: 13

At midday, 0 king, I saw in the way a light from heaven, above

the brightness of the sun, shining round about me and them which journeyed with me.

ActsI26: 14

And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice

speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul,

why persecutest thou me? it is hard for thee to kick against the

pricks.

 

 

ActsI26: 15

And I said, Who art thou, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest.

ActsI26: 16

But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee

for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of

these things which thou hast seen, and of those thing in the

which I will appear unto thee;

ActsI26: 17

Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto

whom now I send thee,

ActsI26: 18

(What For?)To open their eves, and to turn them from

darkness to light and” from the power of Satan unto God”, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. So here is a witness to the working of Satan in our lives and also what we can do about it through the writings of Paul.

Corinthians 17:3

Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and

likewise also the wife unto the husband.

1 Corinthiansl7:4

The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband:

and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own

body, but the wife.

I Corinthiansj7:5

Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a

time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and

come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your

incontinency.

 

 

 

 

 

CHAPTER 5

PROMISES OF ETERNAL LIFE-NOW!

 

AS we look to the book of Revelation we will see somethings

promised to “them that overcometh.” These promises are promises of faith. Again we must believe the promise before it will ever come to pass.

Revelationl2: 1

Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things

saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who

walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;

Revelationl2 :2

I know thy works, and thy labor, and thy patience, and how

thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried

them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found

them liars:

Revelationl2 :3

And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name’s sake

hast laboured, and hast not fainted.

Revelationl2 :4

Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast

left thv first love.

Revel ationl2 :5

Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, (Isaiah 14:12

and Ezekiel 28:all) and repent, and do the first works; or else I

will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.

Revelationl2 :6

But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which I also hate.

Revelationl2 :7

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh” will I give to eat of the tree of life”, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

 

Revelation|2 :8

And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things

saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;

Revelation|2 :9

I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art

rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are

Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.

Revelationl2:10

Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the

devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried;

and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto

death, and I will give thee” a crown of life”.

Revelationl2:1 1

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the

churches; “He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second

death”.

Revelationl2: 12

And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write;These things

saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges;

Revelationl2: 13

I know thy works and where thou dwellest, even where Satan’s seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.

Revelationl2: 14

But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there

them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to

cast a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat

things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.

Revelationl2: 15

So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes, which thing I hate.

Revelationj2: 16

Repent; or else I will come unto thee quicky, and will fight

against them with the sword of my mouth.

 Reve1ationI2:1 7

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the

churches;” To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the

hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone

a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that

receiveth it”.

Revelationl2: 18

And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These

things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass;

 Revelationl2: 19

I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first.

Revelation|2 :20

Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou

sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication,and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.

Revelationl2:2 1

And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.

Revelationl2 :22

Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.

Revelationl2 :23

And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.

Revelationl2 :24

But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden.

Revelationl2:25

But that which ye have already hold fast till I come

 

 Revelationt2 :26

And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end,

to him will I give power over the nations:

Revelation|2 :27

(And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers:) even as I received of my Father.

Revelation|2 :28

And I will give him the morning star.

Revelationl2 :29

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the

churches.

Revelation|3:1

And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things

saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars;

I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and

art dead.

Revelation13 :2

Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain,that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.

Revelationl3 :3

Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.

Revelationl3 :4

Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.

Revelationl3 :5

He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.

Revelationl3 :6

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Revelation!3 :7

And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth; and no man openeth:

Revelationl3 :8

I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

Revelationl3 :9

Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

Revelation|3:10

Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

ReveIationI3:11

Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

RevelationI3:1 2

Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my

God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my

God: and I will write upon him my new name.

ReveIationI3:l 3

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

RevelationI3:14

And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write;

These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;

 

Revelationl3 :15

I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.

Revelation! 3:16

So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

Revelation| 3:17

Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

Revelationl3 :18

I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou

mayest be rich; and white raiment. that thou mayest be

clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear;

and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve. that thou mayest see.

 Revelation! 3:1 9

As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore and repent.

Revelationl3 :20

Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him.and him with me.

Revelation!3 :21

To him that overcometh” will I grant to sit with me in my throne.” even as I also overcame and am set down with my Father in his throne.

Revelation|3 :22

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

So what have we learned from what we just read? As we go back over these passages, we will see that they not only promise God’s blessings, but they also promise immortality to the true believer.

1)Revelation 2:7 To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the

tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

Remember, to eat of the tree of life, is to not die.

2) Revelations 2:11 He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.

3) Revelation 2:17 To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth. saving he that receiveth it.

As we recall, manna was what God gave the Children of Israel

in the wilderness. It was the food of Heaven and as long as you

ate it, you had need of no other food.

4) Revelation 2:26 He that overcometh and keepeth my works to the end, ( End of what? End of yourself.) to him will I give power over the nations.( The nations here are spiritual). There

are many nations “in the spirit”, and as we go back to

Abraham, and the promise to Hagar, the Egyptian hanhmaid of Sarai, we see Ishmeal, and in Genesis 17:18-20, we have the

testimony of God to Abraham that he would bless Ishmeal. and

make him a great nation. It tells us in verse 20, twelve princes

shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation. All these

nations now are alive “in the spirit.” Their purpose was

differant than the purpose of the children of Israel.In scripture, they are towns and castles, and nations.

Genesis 25:16

These are the sons of Ishmael, and these are their names; their towns, and by their castles; twelve princes according to their nations. All these nations are now alive in the spirit realm, along with all the good and bad children of Isreal we read about in the old testament.

The names of Ishmael’s sons are:

Genesis 25:13-15

Nebajoth-( Heights-prophecies: increasing:)

Kedar-(Darkness)

Adbeel-( Chastened of God-Breath of God-Disciplined)

Mibsam-( Fragrant-Odorous-Perfumed)

Mishma-( A report-what is heard; Fleet)

Dumah-( Silence)

Massa-(Burden-Pronouncement-Weighty message-a

prophecy- as something undertaken to carry through; enduring)

Hadar(Hadad)-(Honor-Brave-Thunder)

Tema- ( South country-Desert-southerner)

Jetur- ( He will arrange: he will encircle)

Naphish-( Refresher-Pleasure-Refreshing)

Kedemah-( Eastward-toward the east)

All these people have an effect on our lives. To explain let us

translate Daniel the first three or four chapters.

Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon. The name Babylon

means” Confussion”.. We, are living in a spiritualplace called confussion, even through we don’t know it in the carnal realm.

Now, Nebuchadnezzar “is ” the king of confussion”. King

means, he is ruling.

Nebuchadnezzar’s meaning is; Nebo is your protector against

all misfortune.

Nebo “is” the god of learning and letters. To put this all

together we have: Learning, or, higher education of man, is your protector against all misfortune. To put it another way; if you

think that you can get to heaven by being wise in this world,

you can’t, and it will only lead you to confussion. Nebo is a

spirit, along with confussion. They are working for the god of

this world satan. This is why God tells us;

1 Corinthians 3:18

Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to

be wise in this world, (What does God tell him to do?) let him become as a fool, (Why?) that he may be wise.

19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For, it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.

 20 And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, “that they are vain.

Revelation 2:26 (con’t)

He that overcometh and keepeth my works to the end, to him will I

give power over the nations.( And he shall rule them with a rod of

iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers:) even as I received of my Father. And I will give him the morning-star.

5) Revelation 3:5

He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment,

and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life,( This is

eternal life.) but I will confess his name before my Father, and

before the angels.( The white raiment is the righteousness of

God),

 Revelation! 19:1

And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honor, and power, unto the Lord our God:

Revelation! 19:2

For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.

Revelation! 19:3

And again they said, Alleluia. And her smoke rose up for “ever and ever”.

Revelation! 19:4

And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia.

Revelation! 19:5

And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all

ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great.

Revelation 1 9:6

And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.

Revelation| 19:7

Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife” hath” made herself ready.

Revelation! 19:8

And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.

Revelation| 19:9

And he saith unto me, Write Blessed are thev which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

Revelation| 19:10

And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of

Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

6) Revelation 3:12

Him that overcometh, will I make a pillar in the temple of my God. he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, which is the New Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.

Revelation 21:1

And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

Revelation 12 1:2

And I John saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

Revelation!21 :3

And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God” is” with men, and””” he will dwell with them”””, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

Revelationl2l :4

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there

shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall

there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

Revelation!2 1:5

And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.

Revelation!2 1:6

And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. (Life!)

Revelation|2l :7

He that overcometh shall inherit all thing; and I will be his

God, and he shall be my son.

Revelation!21 :8

 But the fearful, and unbelieving. and the abominable, and

 murderers. and whoremongers.  and sorcerers, and idolaters,

 and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth

 with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

Revelation!21 :9

And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the

 seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with

me, saying, Come hither. I will show thee the bride, the Lamb’s

 wife.

Revelation|2 1:10

And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high

 mountain, and showed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem,

 descending out of heaven from God,

Revelation!2 1:11

Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone

 most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;

Revelation|2 1:12

And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at

 the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which

“are” the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:

Revelationl2 1:13

On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south

three gates; and on the west three gates.

 

Revelationf2 1:14

And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them

the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

 Revelation!2 1:15

And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the

city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.

 Revelationl2 1:16

And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the

breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.

Revelation|21:17

And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.

Revelationl2 1:18

And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was

 pure gold, like unto clear glass.

Revelationj2 1:19

And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnishedwith all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald;

Revelation|21 :20

The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolyte; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.

Revelationl2 1:21

And the twelve gates were twelve pearls: every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.

Revelation|2 1:22

And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb” are” the temple of it.

Revelation!21 :23

And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it:” for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb” is” the light thereof.

Revelation!2 1:24

And the nations of them which are saved shall walkin the light of it: and the kings of the earth do belong their glory and honour into it.

Revelationl2 1:25

And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.

Revelation!21 :26

And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.

Revelation!21 :27

And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh alie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

We see a spiritual city in which there is no temple therein, and we

have been promised, by God, that we would be pillars in that temple.

And it tells us that; verse 22, for the Lord God Almighty and the

Lamb “ARE” the temple of it.

So at this point we are” In Christ” and “in God” and we are not going out any more, and we are not dead, but we have gone through a death but it has been a death of self, and because we have given our life over to his will, we can now say, 0 death, where is thy sting, 0 grave, where is thy victory. For death is swallowed up in victory. The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through our Lord Jesus Christ who has given us the victory.

7) To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, “even as I also overcame”, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

All these scriptures hinge on “overcoming”. Overcoming two things.

1) Satan, and 2) Ourselfs. Once this takes place, we can claim the

promises.

 

 

 

 

 

CHAPTER 6

 

GOD FORETELLING WHAT HE WOULD DO

THROUGH SATAN AND HIS ARMY

 

 

As we study the Old Testament, we come across prophecies

pretaining to things that God is going to do after the coming of

Christ. These scriptures were given to us that we might know what

God has done in his plan and also that we might know the limits of

Satan’s kingdom. The Kingdom of God has order and Satan is part

of that order. Satan has limits of what he can do to us, and these limits are the word of God.

Jeremiah|6: 1

O ye children of Benjamin, gather yourselves to flee out of the

midst of Jerusalem, and blow the trumpet in Tekoa, and set up

a sign of fire in Bethhaccerem: for evil appeareth out of the north,

( Spiritual north-satan’s dwelling place.) and great destruction.

evening are stretched out. (Spiritual day and night.)

wickedness: violence and spoil is heard in her; before me

continually is grief and wounds.

Be thou instructedg 0 Jerusalem, lest my soul depart from

thee’. lest I make thee desolate, a land not inhabited.

Jeremiahl6:9

Thus saith the LORD of hosts, They shall thoroughly glean the

remnant of Israel as a vine: turn back thine hand as a grape gatherer into the baskets.

Jeremiahl6: 10

To whom shall I speak, and give warning, that they may hear?

behold, their ear is uncircumcised, and they cannot

hearken: behold, the word of the LORD is unto them a

reproach; they have no delight in it.

Jeremiah 6:1 1

Therefore I am full of the flurry of the LORD; I am weary with

holding in: I (God) will pour it out upon the children abroad, and

upon the assembly of young men together: for even the husband

with the wife shall be taken, the and with him that is full of days.

Jeremiah|6: 12

And their houses shall be turned unto others, with their fields and wives together: for I will stretch out my hand upon the inhabitants of the land, saith the LORD.

For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them every

one is given to covetousness; and from the prophet even unto

the priest every one dealeth falsely.

Jeremiah|6: 14

They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people

slightlv, saying Peace, peace; when there is no peace.

JeremiahI6:1 5

Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush:therefore they shall fall among them that fall: at the time that I visit them they shall be cast down, saith the LORD.

Jeremiahl6: 16

Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask

for the old paths; where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk

therein.

Jeremiahl6: 17

Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of

the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken.

Jeremiahl6: 18

Therefore hear, ye nations, and know, 0 congregation, what is among them.

Jeremiahl6: 19

Hear, 0 earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people, even

the” fruit of their thoughts,” because they have not hearkened

unto my words, nor to my law, but relected it. (This is God

telling us about Satan, and how he will punish us for our evil

thoughts.)

Jeremiahl6:20

To what purpose cometh there to me incense from Sheba, and the

sweet cane from a far country? Your burnt offerings are not acceptable, nor your sacrifices sweet unto me.

Jeremiahl6 21

Therefore thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will lay stumbling

blocks before this people, and the fathers and the sons together

shall fall upon them; the neighbour and his friend shall perish.

Jeremiahl6:22

Thus saith the LORD, Behold, a people cometh from the north

country, and a great nation shall be raised from the

sides of the earth. (Satan and his demons.)

no mercy; their voice roareth like the sea; and they ride upon

horses, set in array as men for war against thee, 0 daughter of

We have heard the fame thereof: our hands wax feeble:

anguish hath taken hold of us, and pain, as of a woman in

thou mayest know and try their way.( God talking to satan telling

him why he’s doing,  what he is doing.)

Jeremiah|6:28

They are all grievous revolters, walking with slanders: they are

brass and iron; they are all corrupters.

Jeremiahl6 :29

The bellows are burned, the lead is consumed of the fire; the founder melteth in vain; for the wicked are not plucked away. Jeremiahl6 :30

Reprobate silver shall men call them, because the LORD hath rejected them. (We, as believers, will be able to look and see these

people and understand, that because they have rejected the “Word of the Lord”, the Lord has relected them and allowed Satan to bring the curse of the law upon them, and their children.)

Hosea 4:1-7

 

So, God has told us here what he was going to loose on a wicked

people, and how they would be able to enter into the mind and cause a person to be tormented by their sin.

Let us look at other passages pertaining to this subject.

Isaiah| 10:1

Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees, and that write

grievousness which they have prescribed;

prey, and that they may rob the fatherless!

and the “rod in his hand is what God put there to punish the

wicked.) the rod of mine anger, and the staff in their hand is

mine indignation.

I ( God ) will send him( Satan and his army) against an

hypocritical nation, and against the people of my wrath will I

give him a charge, to take the spoil, and to take the prey, and to tread them down like the mire of the streets.

Isaiah| 10:7

graven images did excel them of Jerusalem and of Samaria:

Isaiah|l0:1 1

Shall I not, as I have done unto Samaria and her idols, so do to

Jerusalem and her idols?

Isaiah 10: 12

Wherefore it shall come to pass that when the Lord hath performed his ” whole work” upon mount Zion and on Jerusalem, I will punish the fruit of the stout heart of the king of Assyria, and the glory of his high looks.

Isaiah|10:13

have put down the inhabitants like a valiant man:

Isaiah 10:14

Isaiah! 10:27

And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be

taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy

neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.

LORD.)

the haughty shall be humbled.

Lebanon shall fall by a mighty one. (Jesus Christ.)

 

Again, in the book of Joel, we will see that God has spoken through many witnesses, that it is “HE” that has done this to his people because of sin. It was appointed that at a certain time Jesus Christ would be sent into the world to deliver God’s people out of bondage, but unless you know what to look for, you will miss the second coming of Christ, which is him coming into your heart through the Spirit, and from there the yoke will be broken because of the anointing.

In the first chapter of Joel, God tells us that he is going to cut off the old order and bring in a “New Wine” to take its place. This “New Wine” will be a Vine dresser, with will not allow old ways to continue in the church. No more hypociousy. No more playing

church. But the real thing is here, but if your not the real thing, God will let you play your little game and you won’t even know the different because God will allow you to be blinded by Satan.

 

Joel|l:l

The word of the LORD that came to Joel the son of Pethuel.

Joel|l :2

Hear this, ye old men, and give ear, all ye inhabitants of the

land. Hath this been in your days, or even in the days of your

fathers?

JoelIl :3

Tell ye your children of it, and let your children tell their children,

and their children another generation.( THIS IS WHAT WE ARE

TO BE TELLING OUR CHILDREN.)

JoelIl:4

That which the palmerworm hath left hath the locust eaten; and that which the locust hath left hath the cankerworm eaten; and that which the cankerworm hath left hath the caterpillar eaten. (Or, The thief cometh not but to steal, kill, and destroy)

Joel|l:5

Awake, ye drunkards, and weep; and howl, all ye drinkers of wine,

because of the new wine, for it is cut off from your mouth.

Joel| 1 :6

For a nation (Army of God in the spirit to bring vengeance upon

wickedness) is come up upon my land, strong, and without

number, whose teeth are the teeth of a lion, and he hath the

cheekteeth of a great lion.

Joel| 1:7

He hath laid my vine (Church ) waste, and barked my fig tree:

he hath made it clean bare, and cast it away; the branches

thereof are made white.

Joel|l:8

Lament like a virgin (One without sin ) girded with sackcloth for

the husband of her youth.

Lament like a virgin girded with sackcloth for the husband of her

youth.

Joel|l:9

The meat offering and the drink offering is cut off from the house of the LORD; the priests, the LORD’S ministers, mourn.

Joel|l:10

The field is wasted, the land mourneth; for the corn is wasted:

the new wine is dried up, the oil languisheth. (New wine here is

the righteousness God demands of his people.) Joel~1 :11

Be ye ashamed, 0 ye husbandmen; (Scripts, Pharisees, Preachers

rebuted in Matthew chapter 23) howl, 0 ye vine dressers, for the

wheat and for the barley; because the harvest of the field is

perished.

Joel|l:12

The vine is dried up, (John 15:11 and the vine ye are the branches,

and my Father is the husbandman) and the fig tree languisheth; the

pomegranate tree, the palm tree also, and the apple tree, even all the trees of the field, are withered: because joy is withered away from the sons of men. Joy, our strength!)

Joel|l :13

Gird yourselves, and lament, ye priests: howl, ye ministers of

the altar: come, lie all night in sackcloth, ye ministers of my

God: for the meat offering and the drink offening is withholden

from the house of your God.

Joel|l:14 Sanctify ye a fast, call a solemn assembly, gather

The elders and all the inhabitants of the land into the house of

the LORD your God, and cry unto the LORD.

JoelIl :15

Alas for the day! for the day of the LORD is at hand, and as a

destruction from the Almighty shall it come.

JoelIl :16

Is not the meat cut off before our eyes, yea, joy and gladness from

the house of our God?

Joelfl:17

The seed( Mankind) is rotten under their clods, the garners are

laid desolate, the barns are broken down; for the corn (Truth)

is withered.

JoeIjl:18

How do the beasts groan! the herds of cattle are perplexed, because

they have no pasture; yea, the flocks of sheep are made desolate.

JoelIl:19

O LORD, to thee will I cry: for the fire hath devoured the pastures of the wilderness, and the flame hath burned all the trees of the field.

Joel|l :20

The beasts of the field cry also unto thee: for the rivers of waters are dried up, and the fire hath devoured the pastures of the wilderness.

 

Joel 2:1 94

Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy

mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble:for” the day of the LORD” cometh, for it is night at hand;

 JoelI2 :2

A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains:

a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be anymore after it, even to the years of many generations.

JoelI2:3

A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flameburneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.

Joel|2:4

The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as

horsemen, so shall they run.

Joel|2:5

Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap,

like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a

strong people set in battle array.

Joel|2:6

Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall

gather blackness.

Joel|2:7

They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like

men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they

shall not break their ranks:

Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his

path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded.

Joel||2:9

They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall,

they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the

windows like a thief.

Joel|2: 10

The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble:

the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining:

Joel|2:l 1

And the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong” that executeth his word:

“for the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; and who

can abide it?

Joell2: 12

Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with

all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with

mourning:

Joel|2:13 And rend your heart, and not your garments, and

turn unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful,

slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil.

Joel2: 14

Who knoweth if he will return and repent, and leave a blessing

behind him; even a meat offering and a drink offering unto the

LORD your God?

Joel 2:15

Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:

JoelI2: 16

Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders,

gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the

bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.

Joel2: 17

Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the

porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O

LORD, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God?

Joel|2: 18

Then Will the LORD be jealous for his land, and pity his people.

Joelf2: 19

Yea, the LORD will answer and say unto his people, Behold, I

will send you corn, and wine, and oil, and ye shall be satisfied

therewith: and I will no more make you a reproach among the

heathen:

Joel 12:20

But I will remove far off from you the northern army,( Satan )

and will driye him into a land barren and desolate, with his

face toward the east sea, and his hinder part toward the utmost

sea, and his stink shall come up, and his ill savour shall come

up, because he hath done great things.

Joel 2:21

Fear not, 0 land; be glad and rejoice: for the LORD will do

great things.

Joel!2 :22

Be not afraid, ye beasts of the field: for the pastures of the

wilderness do spring, for the tree beareth her fruit, the fig tree

and the vine do yield their strength.

Joel|2 :23

Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD

your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately,

and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former

rain, and the latter rain in the first month.

Joelt2:24 And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall

overflow with wine and oil.

Joelf2:25

And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten,

the cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm, my

great army which I sent among you. Note: And I ( God) will

restore the years.)

Joel 12:26

And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name

of the LORD your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you:

and my people shall never be ashamed.

JoelI2 :27

And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall never be

ashamed.

Joel 2:28

And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my

spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall

prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men

shall see visions:

JoelI2:29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids

in those days will I pour out my spirit.

Joell2:30

And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood,

and fire, and pillars of smoke.

Joell2:3 1

The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into

blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.

JoelI2:32

And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name

of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in

Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in

the remnant whom the LORD shall call.

So we see that the great army of God has come upon his people because of sin, and they became desolate and baron because

of their chose to not serve God.

Let us look at New Testament” Day of the LORD” in a different

light.

Matthew|5:17  Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the

prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

  Matthew|5:18  For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass,

one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be

fulfilled.

  Matthew|5:19  Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least

commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in

the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the

same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

  Matthew|5:20  For I say unto you, That except your righteousness

shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall

in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

 Matthew|5 :21

Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt

not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the

judgment:

Matthew|5:22

But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother

without a cause shall be in danger of the judgement: and whoever shall say to his brother, Raca, (Or, vain fellow – Or, your not worth anything) shall be in danger  of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool,  shall be in danger of hellfire.

(Why is this? Because God now has made Jesus Christ” JUDGE” over all the earth. Not just over man, but over all creation.)

Matthewl5 :23

Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar,( Or, if you ask God to

for-give you of your sins.) and there rememberest that thy brother

hath ought against thee;( Or, you’ve done something wrong to your

brother, or friend and haven’t tried to work it out.)

Matthew|5 :24

(What are we to do? ) Leave there thy gift before the altar, and

go thy way: first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thv gift.

Matthewl5 :25

Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with

him;( Why?) lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the

judge,( Jesus Christ) and the judge deliver thee to the officer,(

Satan -Jesus has even been given charge over him and his demons.) and thou be cast into prison.( demon position.)

Matthew|5 :26

Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out

thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.

CHAPTER 7

 

THERE MUST BE A GOOD CONSCIENCE

 

Matthewl5 :27

Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not

commit adultery:

Matthewl 5:28

But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust

after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

Jesus here is touching on the heart of the subject which is the mind

and conscience.

By understanding that its a good conscience with God that God

desires, we see judgment begins with ourselves, in the realm of the

mind and Spirit, knowing that punishment will come when you have a knowledge of good and evil, and choose to walk disobedience knowing that your opening the door to a demon when ever we willfully go against the will of God, will work a hardshop on you by the torment you know will come with the disobedience.

 When we know about the creation, and their purpose, and the full

plan of God, we can’t help but feel that we have been blessed, just by knowing the truth. But to willfully cross that line, the scriptures say It’s a fearful looking for the wrath of God, who hold the truth in unrighteousness.

What we have been talking about is the true “FEAR OF THE

LORD”, which, according to Proverbs 1:7;

is the beginning of knowledge.

 

Proverbs|l :7

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Lets look at another scripture that pertains to the heart.

 

 

 

LukeI8:5

A sower went out to sow his seed: and as he sowed, some fell by the way side; and it was trodden down, and the fowls of the air devoured it.

Luke|8 :6

And some fell upon a rock; and as soon as it was sprung up, it

withered away, because it lacked moisture.

Luke!8:7

And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprang up with it, and

choked it.

Lukej8:8

And other fell on good ground, and sprang up, and bare fruit an

hundred fold. And when he had said these things, he cried, He that

hath ears to hear, let him hear.

LukeI8:9

And his disciples asked him, saying, What might this parable be?

Luke|8: 10

And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the

kingdom of God: but to others in parables;” that seeing they

might not see, and hearing they might not understand.”

 

LukeI8:1 I

Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.

LukeI8: 12

Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, (What does the devil do? )and taketh away the word out

of their hearts,(Why does the devil want to take the word out of

your heart?) lest they should believe and be saved. (The scriptures say that the devil can steal the word because there was no understanding of the word sowen into his heart.

Luke|8: 13

They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word

with joy, and these have no root,( they don’t know what the word

of of God says.) which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away.  

Luke|8: 14

And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they

have heard,  go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and

pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection.

LukeI8: 15

But that on the good  ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.

LukeI8: 16

No man, when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it with a vessel, or putteth it under a bed; but setteth it on a candlestick, that they which enter in may see the light.

LukeI8: 17

For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any

thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad.

LukeI8: 18

(A warning from Jesus to us.)Take heed therefore how ye hear:

for whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and whosoever hath

not, from him shall be taken even that which he seemeth to

have.

This parable is also in Mark 14, but Jesus, in telling his disciples

about the parable, also tells us something about this parable that is

special, and that is ; if you don’t understand this parable you cannot

understand any other parable.

MarkI4: 13

And he said unto them, Know ye not this parable? and how then will ye know all parables? So Jesus makes it clear that this parable is the beginning of understanding other parables.

The reason that it’s so import is, that it explains why a person

does, or does not go on to serve the Lord. So Jesus here has layed down the ground rules for being a true worshipper of God. The heart has to be honest and good. If its not, you will fall into one of the other types of ground, and be lost.

JohnI4:23

But the hour cometh,” and now is’, when the true worshippers

shall worship the Father” in spirit” and” in truth”: for the

Father seeketh such to worship him.

JohnI4:24

God is a Spirit: and they that worship him” must” worship him

in spirit and in truth.

So what does it mean to” Worship the Father in Spirit and truth?”

First we must ask, what is truth?

John 1.7:17

Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

So truth is the Word. Now what is it to worship in Spirit?

GalatiansI5:l4

For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

Galatians|5:15

But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not

consumed one of another.

Galatians|5: 16   ThisI say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lustof the flesh.

Galatians|5: 17

For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the thing that ye would.

GalatiansI5:1 8

But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.

GalatiansI5:19

Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

Galatians|5 :20

Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife,

seditions, heresies,

Galatians|5 :21

Envvings, murders, drunkenness, revelling, and such like:

of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past,

that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

 

Galatians|5 :22

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering,

gentleness, goodness, faith,

Galatians|5 :23

Meekness, temperance: “against such there is no law.”

Galatians|5

And they that are Christ’s” have  crucified” the flesh with the

affections and lusts.

 

 

Galatians|5 :25

If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

Galatians|5 :26

Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another,

envying one another.

So we see, to worship him in Spirit we must not manifest the flesh.

And if we do, we’re not walking in the Spirit. But if we

come to the place where we don’t manifest the flesh, or to say it

another way, carnal nature. God has promised them health and

eternal life in this life time, starting from the place where they are

without sin, which is called; “born of God”.

John!3 :7

Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness

is righteous, even as he is righteous.

Johnl3:8

He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from

the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested,

that he might destroy the works of the devil.

I Johnf3:9

Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed

remaineth in him: and he cannot sin,  because he is born of

God.

 

 

Romans|8:1

There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

RomansI8 :2

For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me

free from the law of sin and death.  (There are two laws here. 1)

The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus, and 2) The law of sin

and death.)

Romansl8 :3

For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the

flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh,

and for sin, (Did what ?) condemned sin in the flesh😦 Or,

condemned sin in me and you. (So if we sin and don’t ask

forgiveness for it, we will be judged by the law of sin and death, but if we sin and ask forgiveness, we are forgiven but we will still have to pay a price.

He said, if you sin your going to pay for it through sickness, disease, trouble, death, but, if you learn of me and let me teach you, and follow my example, you shall not be sick and none of these diseases will come on you and you shall live forever, because death has no hold on you.)

Romansl8 :4

That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled” in us,” who

walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

Romansl8 :5

For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh:

but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.

 

Romansl8 :6

For to be carnally minded “is death;” but to be spiritually

minded “is life and peace.”

 

Romansl8:7

Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: (Why?) for it is not subiect to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

 Romans|8 :8

So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

 Romansl8:9

But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit

of God”dwell in you. (We must be born again of God which is not

being born again of the Spirit of Christ.) (Note:Spirit of God, not

Spirit of Christ.). Now if any man” have not the Spirit of

Christ” he is none of his.

 

Romansl8: 10

And if Christ be in you, the body is dead (Why?) because of sin;

but the Spirit is life (Why?) because of righteousness.

Romansl8:1 1

But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you (God the Father ), he that raised up Christ from

the dead (Will do what?)shall also quicken your mortal bodies

(How?) by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. (When ?–Now!)

Romansl8: 12

Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.

Romansj8:13

For if ye live after the flesh, (What will happen?) ye shall die:

but if ye through the Spirit do mortify (Mortify- to die to) the deeds of the body,

(What will happen?) ye shall live. (This is really simple if you will

believe it.)

Romans|8: 14

For as many as are led  “by the Spirit of God,” they are the

sons of God.

 

RomansI8: 15

For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear;

but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry,

Abba, Father.

Romans|8: 16

The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are

the children of God:

RomansI8: 17

And if children, then heirs: heirs of God. and joint-heirs with

Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also

glorified together.

_Romansl8: 18

For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

Romansl8: 19

For the earnest expectation of the creature (God) waiteth for

the manifestation of the sons of God. (Why?)

Romansl8:20

For the creature (All of creation ).) was made subject to vanity, not

willingly, but by reason of him (God ) who hath subjected the same in hope,

Romansl8:2 1

Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage

of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

 

Romansl8 :22

For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.

Romansl8 :23

And not only they,” but ourselves” also, which have the firstfruits

of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for

the adoptiong to wit. the redemntion of our body.

 

So we see that eternal life and health has been promised to

the true worshipper of God. The contraversy has been not if we

have eternal life, but when we receive it.

Satan does not want us to see that we can have it now, because

if we see that, he has lost the battle. But if he can keep us

believing that we have to die, we have lost, and called God a

liar.

lJohn5:10

He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself:

he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he

believeth not the record that God gave of his Son

I John 5:11

And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.

I John|5:12

He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God

hath not life.

L JohnI5:13

These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God: that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

We could go on and on searching the scriptures and proving that

these things are true, but the fire has been set, the Word of God has

been preached. Now, it’s up to you and the LORD.

 

God bless you, and I pray that you believe.
