There always seems to be a debate when people get together and infuse their limited knowledge into Our Lord God Jesus Christ’s knowledge. I, and many others, just shudder when we see individuals purposely change the gospel of the Kingdom of God distorted in a way that is so unrecognizable that our Father, I know, sheds a tear knowing the outcome of those who purposely preach, teach, and follow such a distorted gospel. In the letter to the Galatians, the Apostle Paul, after being blinded by our Lord God on the road to Damascus, was led by our Lord God Jesus Christ into the desert to learn from our Father of his mission to preach the gospel to the Gentiles. He was taught by God’s Word, which proceeded from the lips of the Lord God.
Now, this is the point that I am getting to. Adam and Eve, the Prophets, the Apostles and all that He CHOSE to have the knowledge revealed to them by our Lord about Who our God is! Besides, many are called, but only a few are CHOSEN, “Then the king said to the servants, ‘Bind him hand and foot, and throw him into the outer darkness; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’ “For many are called, but few are chosen.”, Matthew 22:13-14. I was where MANY are at today.
To give you a prime example, did you know that there is not a temple in the Kingdom of Heaven? Revelation 21: 22 – ‘But I saw no temple in the city, because the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple.’ We must reprove those preaching another gospel. If somebody, or angel preach another gospel let him be cursed. This declaration is as serious as it sounds. Our Lord God and Redeemer has declared His Spirit, John 6: 63 – ‘It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.’ He couldn’t make it any more plain; you change His Gospel He WILL exact His vengeance on you with no questions asked! It stands to reason if even an angel changes His abundant grace into a system of works. Do not think that your good works will mean anything in your defense. We are all guilty, yet only a few are chosen. This Salvation, which is His abundant grace given to us, Gentile dogs, which is offered freely has many scrambling to enact laws to follow in righteousness. Sorry, that’s not unmerited grace. You sinning against the Holy Word, the sin that can never be forgiven, which has been written, and spoken is locking the door with the key to the prison of hell, and fast-tracking your destruction in the lake of fire. People become deceived by the seduction of that mysterious harlot, who, also, in chains, tempting those with a crown. It is a false truth that comes from the serpent promising that all your works will give you liberty, and ultimately, salvation.
Gal. 2:16-26 If it be our care to act under the guidance and power of the blessed Spirit, though we may not be freed from the stirrings and oppositions of the corrupt nature which remains in us, it shall not have dominion over us. Believers are engaged in a conflict, in which they earnestly desire that grace may obtain full and speedy victory. And those who desire that to give themselves up to be led by the Holy Spirit, are not under the law as a covenant of works, nor exposed to its awful curse. Their hatred of sin, and desires after holiness, show that they have a part in the salvation of the gospel. The works of the flesh are many and manifest. And these sins will shut men out of heaven. Yet, what is the number of people, calling themselves Christians, live in the laws, and say they hope for heaven! The fruits of the Spirit, or of the renewed nature, which we are to do, are named. And as the apostle had chiefly named works of the flesh, not only destructive to men themselves, but tending to make them so to one another, so here he chiefly notices the fruits of the Spirit, which tend to make Christians agreeable one to another, as well as to make them happy. The fruits of the Spirit plainly show, that such are led by the Spirit. By describing the works of the flesh and fruits of the Spirit, we are told what to avoid and oppose, and what we are to cherish and cultivate; and this is the sincere care and endeavor of all real Christians. Sin does not now reign in their mortal bodies, so that they obey it, #Ro 6:12|, for they seek to destroy it. Christ never will own those who yield themselves up to be the servants of sin. And it is not enough that we cease to do evil, but we must learn to do well. Our conversation will always be answerable to the principle which guides and governs us, #Ro 8:5|. We must set ourselves in earnest to mortify the deeds of the body, and to walk in newness of life. Not being desirous of vain-glory, or unduly wishing for the esteem and applause of men, not provoking or envying one another, but seeking to bring forth more abundantly those good fruits, which are, through Jesus Christ, to the praise and glory of God.”
[Commentary by Matthew Henry, 1710.]
The New Jerusalem, Revelation 21:21-23
…And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; each one of the gates was a single pearl. And the street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass. I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. And the city has no need of the sun or of the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God has illumined it, and its lamp is the Lamb.
Do you notice the lamb is the Lamp. That shows the distinctive difference between the Father, Lord, and His only begotten Son, Jesus, full of grace and truth, and full of the Lord’s glory. Jesus plainly tells us of His divinity and tells the Pharisees, John 10:16) ” And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, [and] one shepherd. 17) Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. 18) No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.”
How well do we know the love of Christ? Face it, the world experienced it’s Creator walking and talking on this sphere. We, even today, breath the air He, Himself, breathed. He is not a God made of stone, wood, precious metals, and such materials that can be shaped into such shapes even to resemble the beasts that roam the earth, of the creatures in the sea. All of these have no breath. How can one pray to the dead? “And besides all this, between us and you there is a great chasm fixed, so that those who wish to come over from here to you will not be able, and that none may cross over from there to us.”, Luke 16:26.
Let’s consider this, then, if God, the Lord, the Father of all spirits, how does He pass on His Holy Spirit? If you believe in a god that is one, but consists in three persons, then that is more absurd that the Pagan Babylonian Trinity, IHS, Isis, Horus, and Samaramis. At least their ” trinity ” was three separate persons. The many that are called believe in a god that is a ” trinity “, yet none can satisfactorily teach a concise definition which doesn’t keep at least three quarters of their listeners confused. Notwithstanding, Job 21:5
Look at me and be appalled; clap your hand over your mouth. And, remember, our God is not the author of confusion. Then why are so many confused when God says He is ONE, and there are no other gods besides Him, but man’s philosophy has made Him into three persons – WHAT? He is God, NOT a person! AHA! You say it’s a mystery, however, there is NO mystery any longer. A full revelation of our Lord has been revealed in Christ Jesus.
For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
“Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:”
Philippians 2:5) “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: 6) Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: 7) But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: 8) And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. 9) Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10) That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of [things] in heaven, and [things] in earth, and [things] under the earth; 11) And [that] every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ [is] Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” [ Isaiah 52:13-15]
“‘But they rebelled against me and would not listen to me; they did not get rid of the vile images they had set their eyes on, nor did they forsake the idols of Egypt. So I said I would pour out my wrath on them and spend my anger against them in Egypt.” Who knew? Our God does not change, and certain cavaliers set out to spread the doctrine of Baal throughout the known Church Of God. They have the Spirit of a god, , and a son of god, and a Father god of their own invention. Throughput The Holy Scriptures our Father, the Almighty Lord and God, the Lord Jesus the Christ has poured His Word out on all who He has CHOSEN, and they hear His voice. They hear His WORD. When I view the definition of spirit there seems to be a common train of thought to define the word; breath. How can the water move by the Holy Spirit unless it came from the mouth and lips of our Lord God. Besides, maybe I’m ignorant of something, so what they define as a person is the invisible Word proceeding out between the lips of His image, His Son, Jehovah, and would have us to believe that the Lord of all Creation, He being invisible, making His residence in His only begotten Son, Jehovah, …..
Proverbs 8:22-33, 22) “The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old.
23) I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.
24) When [there were] no depths, I was brought forth; when [there were] no fountains abounding with water.
25) Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth:
26) While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world.
27) When he prepared the heavens, I [was] there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth:
28) When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep:
29) When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth: [ Genesis 1:2-4;
2) And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness [was] upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
The First Day: Light
3) And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. 4) And God saw the light, that [it was] good: and God divided the light from the darkness.]
30) Then I was by him, [as] one brought up [with him]: and I was daily [his] delight, rejoicing always before him;
31) Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights [were] with the sons of men.
32) Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed [are they that] keep my ways.
33) Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not.”
Do yourself a favor, fill a large bowl with water, just as Lord God created in the beginning. This next part is really technical, it is a masterful product of superior intelligence and engineering. Keep in mind, we ARE created in His likeness and image, Colossians 1:15. Why do we need philosophy of the world to define what is not of this world? The Holy Spirit, not a god the holy spirit, but the Holy Spirit of God; NOT SEPARATE, It’s really not rocket science, if it were, His CHOSEN wouldn’t be able to hear it. Question: how can I transfer my spirit into my children unless I speak to them, or write my spirit down on paper? Again, how can you test a spirit if you can’t hear it, and, or have it write it down for you to know that spirit? The delima is solved. Getting back to the bowl of water; lets fill a bowl with water. Now, just let the ripples settle and when they have try speaking over it and see if your words, by your breath, through your lips move the very face of the water! OOOOOOHHHHH! So Mysterious!
On Denying the Incarnation
“1) Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2) This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, 3) but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.” I John 4:1-3
Even then the spirits were working hard to deny Jesus’ incarnation. He tells us so many times in Holy Scripture of what HIS Holy Spirit is: Gen. 2:7; Lev. 18:3; Deut. 29:19; Psalms 106:23; Isaiah 63:10; Jer. 7:23-24; 11:8; 16:12; 17:23; 18:12; Ezekiel 20:8; Prov. 4:13; John 5:21; I Cor. 15 45; just to present a few examples of God’s Spirit. when we discern through love and faith, we come to the enlightenment of what some call a mystery.
1) I want you to know how hard I am contending for you and for those at Laodicea, and for all who have not met me personally. 2) My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, 3) in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. 4) I tell you this so that no one may deceive you by fine-sounding arguments. 5) For though I am absent from you in body, I am present with you in spirit and delight to see how disciplined you are and how firm your faith in Christ is.
Spiritual Fullness in Christ
6) So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, 7) rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.
8) See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.
9)For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, 10) and in Christ you have been brought to fullness. He is the head over every power and authority.”
Apparently there is a grand lie that has penetrated the very core of such dear souls that have been called. However, we know there are those that are CHOSEN to hear His voice within us, however it is presented, by the Holy Scriptures, His voice, by reading His Word daily, by preachers, by teachers, and by those spreading our Lord God’s gospel to the world. Our God will not strive with us forever, Gen. 6:3; Isa. 63:10; Gal. 5:17; I Thess. 5:19.
When I read the Holy Word of life it lights a fire within that is raging, and consuming the thought of ever relying on anything this world teaches. We have been told that we do not live by bread alone, but by EVERY WORD of God. Every single one of us wants to believe our parents, our pastors, our spouses, our friends, etc., and we see those who appear to have an overwhelming passion to do what is right. We all must be alert at all times that there are spiritual forces in us all that war against God’s Holy Word. We can be happy with the revelation of Himself within us. Only He can create out of nothing, By faith we understand that the worlds were prepared by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible, Heb. 11:3.
By the word of the LORD the heavens were made, their starry host by the breath of his mouth. Psalm 33:6.
We now know the mystery of the Holy Spirit, it is the very word of God; “It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing; the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life.” John 6:63 – How does one not understand that?
Romans 1:19-21 – Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
FYI – Take a look in a mirror and imagine two more persons within you, then, use your intelligence.
