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
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
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
16) Because it is written, Be ye holy; (why? ) for I am holy. (God
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-
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.
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
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
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.
12) But as many as received him, to them gave he ( What?)
“Power to become” Sons of GOD even to them that believe on
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
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
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
3) Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of
plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of
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
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
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
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
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
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
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.
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
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:
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
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.
WHAT DID JESUS SAY ABOUT DYING?
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.
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
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
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
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
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
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
For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all
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
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
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
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
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
32) And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you
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.
2) Treasures of wickedness profit nothing: but righteous (Do
what? ) delivereth from death.
4) Riches profit not in the day of wrath: but righteousness
delivereth from death.
28) In the way of righteousness is life; and in the pathway
thereof there is no death.
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.
21) Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that
love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
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.
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
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
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
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.
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
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
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.)
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.
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
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.
THE RENEWING OF THE MIND
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.)
20) My son attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my
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.
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
18) She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and
happy is every one that retaineth her.
30) The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life: and he that
winnest souls is wise.
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:
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
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
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
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
18) For in that he himself hath suffered, being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.
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
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
11) So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my
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
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
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.
For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his
own works, as God did from his.
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.
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.
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.
OUR THOUGHTS AND HOW SATAN USES THEM
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.
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power
of his might.
Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand
against the wiles of the devil.
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 therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and
having on the breastplate of righteousness:
And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace,
Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able
to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit,
which is the word of God:
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit,
and watching there unto with all perseverance and supplication
for all saints;
“””””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,
For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may
speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
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”.)
Whom I have sent unto you for the same purpose, that ye
might know our affairs, and that he might comfort your hearts.
Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father
and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in
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.
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
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.
And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves:
for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.
Use hospitality one to another without grudging.
As every man hath received the gift, even so ministereth (the)
same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of
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.
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
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.
Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed;
but let him glorify God on this behalf.
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?
And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly
and the sinner appear?
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.
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:
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;
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.)
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.
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God,
that he may exalt you in due time:
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:
Whom resist stedfast” in the faith”, knowing that the same
afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the
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.
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.
Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God:
for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any
(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
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?
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.
Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Thou art permitted to speak for thyself. Then Paul stretched forth the hand, and answered for
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:
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.
My manner of life from my youth, which was at the first among mine own nation at Jerusalem, know all the Jews;
Which knew me from the begining, if they would testify, that
after the most straitest sect of our religion I lived a Pharisee
And now I stand and am judged for the hope of the promise
made of God unto our fathers:
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.
Why should it be thought a thing incredible with you, that God
should raise the dead?
I verily thought with myself; that I ought to do many things contrary to the name of Jesus of Nazareth.
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.
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.
Whereupon as I went to Damascus with authority and commission
from the chief priests,
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.
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
And I said, Who art thou, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest.
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;
Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto
whom now I send thee,
(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.
Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and
likewise also the wife unto the husband.
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.
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
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.
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;
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
And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name’s sake
hast laboured, and hast not fainted.
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.
But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which I also hate.
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.
And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things
saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;
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.
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”.
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
And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write;These things
saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges;
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.
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.
So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes, which thing I hate.
Repent; or else I will come unto thee quicky, and will fight
against them with the sword of my mouth.
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
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;
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.
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.
And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.
Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.
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.
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.
But that which ye have already hold fast till I come
And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto 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.
He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the
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
Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain,that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.
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.
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.
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.
He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
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:
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.
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.
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.
Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.
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.
He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
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;
I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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:
Nebajoth-( Heights-prophecies: increasing:)
Adbeel-( Chastened of God-Breath of God-Disciplined)
Mishma-( A report-what is heard; Fleet)
prophecy- as something undertaken to carry through; enduring)
Tema- ( South country-Desert-southerner)
Jetur- ( He will arrange: he will encircle)
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
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
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:
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.
And again they said, Alleluia. And her smoke rose up for “ever and ever”.
And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!)
He that overcometh shall inherit all thing; and I will be his
God, and he shall be my son.
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.
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
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,
Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone
most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;
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:
On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south
three gates; and on the west three gates.
And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them
the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the
city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.
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.
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.
And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was
pure gold, like unto clear glass.
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;
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.
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.
And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb” are” the temple of it.
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.
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.
And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.
And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.
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
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.
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.
I have likened the daughter of Zion to a comely and delicate woman.
The shepherds with their flocks shall come unto her; they shall pitch their tents against her round about; they shall feed every one in his place.
Prepare ye war against her; arise, and let us go up at noon.
Woe unto us! for the day goeth away, for the shadows of the
evening are stretched out. (Spiritual day and night.)
Arise, and let us go by night, and let us destroy her palaces.
For thus hath the LORD of hosts said, Hew ye down trees, and
cast a mount against Jerusalem: this is the city to be visited;
she is wholly oppression in the midst of her.
As a fountain casteth out her watersg so she casteth out her
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.
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.
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.
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.
They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people
slightlv, saying Peace, peace; when there is no peace.
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.
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
Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of
the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken.
Therefore hear, ye nations, and know, 0 congregation, what is among them.
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
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.
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.
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.)
They shall lay hold on bow and spear; they are cruel, and have
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
(Here is our warning of where not to walk and where not to go.)
Go not forth into the field, nor walk by the way; for the sword
of the enemy and fear is on every side.
O daughter of my people, gird thee with sackcloth, and wallow thyself in ashes: make thee mourning, as for an only son, (Jesus )
most bitter lamentation: for the spoiler ( Satan ) shall suddenly come upon us.
I have set thee for a tower an a fortress among my people, that
thou mayest know and try their way.( God talking to satan telling
him why he’s doing, what he is doing.)
They are all grievous revolters, walking with slanders: they are
brass and iron; they are all corrupters.
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.)
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.
Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees, and that write
grievousness which they have prescribed;
To turn aside the needy from judgment, and to take away the
right from the poor of my people, that widows may be their
prey, and that they may rob the fatherless!
And what will ye do in the day of visitation, and in the desolation
which shall come from far? to whom will ye flee for help? and where will ye leave your glory?
Without me they shall bow down under the prisoners, and they shall fall under the slain. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
O Assyrian, ( The Assyrian is a part of Satan’s spiritual army,
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
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.
Howbeit he meaneth not so, neither doth his heart think so; but
it is in his heart to destroy and cut off nations not a few.
For he saith, Are not my princes altogether kings?
Is not Calno as Carchemish? is not Hamath as Arpad? is not
Samaria as Damascus?
As my hand hath found the kingdoms of the idols, and whose
graven images did excel them of Jerusalem and of Samaria:
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. ( When God sent Jesus into the world, he not only sent him to save the world, but to bring vengeance upon the wicked.)
For he saith, (Satan) By the strength of my hand I have done it,
and by my wisdom; for I am prudent: and I have removed the
bounds of the people, and have robbed their treasures, and I
have put down the inhabitants like a valiant man:
And my hand hath found as a nest the riches of the people:
and as one gathereth eggs that are left, have I gathered all the
earth; and there was none that moved the wing, or opened the
mouth, or peeped.
Shall the ax boast itself against him that heweth there with? (God
talking about what Satan is boosting about.) or shall the saw
magnify itself against him that shaketh it? as if the rod should shake itself against them that lift it up, or as if the staff should lift up itself, as if it were no wood.
Therefore shall the Lord, the Lord of hosts, send among his fat ones leanness; and under his glory he shall kindle a burning like the burning of a fire.
And the light of Israel (God) shall be for a fire, and his Holy
One (Jesus Christ) for a flame: and it shall burn and devour his
thorns and his briers in one day;
And shall consume the glory of his forest, and of his fruitful field,
both soul and body:( Our soul- Our body) and they shall be as
when a standard-bearer fainteth.
And the rest of the trees of his forest shall be few, that a child may
write them. (Unless ye become as a little child)
And it shall come to pass in that day, that the remnant of Israel, and such as are escaped of the house of Jacob, shall no more again stay upon him that smote them, but shall stay upon the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, in truth. (Us, if we overcome!)
The remnant shall return, even the remnant of Jacob, unto the
For though thy people Israel be as the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them shall return: the consumption decreed shall overflow with righteousness.
For the Lord GOD of hosts shall make consumption, even
determined, in the midst of all the land.
Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD of hosts, 0 my people that
dwellest in Zion, (US) be not afraid of the Assyrian: ( Satan) he
shall smite thee with a rod, and shall lift up his staff against
thee, after the manner of Egypt.
For yet a very little while, and the indignation shall cease, and
mine anger in their destruction. (As we grow in the knowledge of
the Lord, and apply his will to our life, we are delivered from
demons in us through his devouring fire consuming them.)
And the LORD of hosts shall stir up a scourge for him “according
to” the slaughter of Midian at the rock of Oreb:” and as” his rod was upon the sea, so shall he lift it up” after the manner of Egypt.”
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.
(These are the cares and troubles in our life that will disappear
when ever we get hold of the truth and apply it to our life.)
(Perfect peace have all they whose mind is stayed upon the

They are gone over the passage: they have taken up their lodging at
Geba; Ramah is afraid; Gibeah of Saul is fled.
Lift up thy voice, 0 daughter of Gallim: cause it to be heard unto
Laish, 0 poor Anathoth.
Madmenah is removed; the inhabitants of Gebim gather themselves to flee.
As yet shall he remain at Nob that day: he shall shake his hand
against the mount of the daughter of Zion, the hill of Jerusalem.
Behold, the Lord, the LORD of hosts, shall lop the bough with
terror: and the high ones of stature shall be hewn down, and
the haughty shall be humbled.
And he shall cut down the thickets of the forest with iron, and
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.
The word of the LORD that came to Joel the son of Pethuel.
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
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.)
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)
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.
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.
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
The meat offering and the drink offering is cut off from the house of the LORD; the priests, the LORD’S ministers, mourn.
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
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!)
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.
Alas for the day! for the day of the LORD is at hand, and as a
destruction from the Almighty shall it come.
Is not the meat cut off before our eyes, yea, joy and gladness from
the house of our God?
The seed( Mankind) is rotten under their clods, the garners are
laid desolate, the barns are broken down; for the corn (Truth)
How do the beasts groan! the herds of cattle are perplexed, because
they have no pasture; yea, the flocks of sheep are made desolate.
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.
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;
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.
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.
The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as
horsemen, so shall they run.
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.
Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall
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.
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.
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:
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?
Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with
all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with
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.
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?
Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:
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.
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?
Then Will the LORD be jealous for his land, and pity his people.
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
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.
Fear not, 0 land; be glad and rejoice: for the LORD will do
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.
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.
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.)
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.
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
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.
And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood,
and fire, and pillars of smoke.
The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into
blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.
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
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
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.
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
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.)
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.)
(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.
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.)
Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out
thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.
THERE MUST BE A GOOD CONSCIENCE
Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not
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
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.
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.
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.
And some fell upon a rock; and as soon as it was sprung up, it
withered away, because it lacked moisture.
And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprang up with it, and
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.
And his disciples asked him, saying, What might this parable be?
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.”
Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any
thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad.
(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
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.
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.
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.
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?
Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
So truth is the Word. Now what is it to worship in Spirit?
For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
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.
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.
But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife,
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.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering,
gentleness, goodness, faith,
Meekness, temperance: “against such there is no law.”
And they that are Christ’s” have crucified” the flesh with the
affections and lusts.
If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
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”.
Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness
is righteous, even as he is righteous.
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.
Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed
remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of
There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
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
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.)
That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled” in us,” who
walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
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.
For to be carnally minded “is death;” but to be spiritually
minded “is life and peace.”
Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: (Why?) for it is not subiect to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
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.
And if Christ be in you, the body is dead (Why?) because of sin;
but the Spirit is life (Why?) because of righteousness.
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!)
Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.
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
For as many as are led “by the Spirit of God,” they are the
sons of God.
For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear;
but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry,
The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are
the children of God:
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
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.
For the earnest expectation of the creature (God) waiteth for
the manifestation of the sons of God. (Why?)
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,
Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage
of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.
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
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.
He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God
hath not life.
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.
