Another Jesus – Babylon’s False Christs’

April 13, 2014

jesuspicThere are no photographs of Jesus Christ retained from the days of His ministry prior to the ascension into the heavens.  All the photos, paintings and faces men see of the man Jesus Christ are in fact another jesus.  The real Jesus certainly did not have long hair (1 Cor 11:14) and he certainly was not “good looking” or attractive such that the world would esteem him; yet our culture has been overtaken by these false images of Jesus Christ.

Isa 53:2  For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. 

Isa 53:3  He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. 

 It works this way for God’s Elect to this very day.  The Body of Christ (The Elect) like the Lord, their head, will not be esteemed and to the carnal mind appear to have nothing that is desired by the flesh.  Christ’s own that HE chooses out of the world (which is the church) will not be esteemed by men.  Anyone with a following or drawing in the crowds is certainly not a disciple of Jesus Christ. Those in Christ will be considered fools by the wisdom and logic of this world.

1Co 1:25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

1Co 1:27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty

Yet here we are in 2014 and  multi-billions of people call themselves Christians and genuinely believe they worship God and His Son Jesus Christ.  Yet the Jesus these billions follow in Orthodox Christianity is the “other” jesus Paul wrote about.  It is a jesus based on the FLESH and the carnal mind.  The carnal mind is at enmity with God and as a result there is no unity of the faith in orthodox Christianity, their doctrines are all over the map and that has resulted in thousands of denominations.

2Co 11:3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity (the ONENESS) that is in Christ.

2Co 11:4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.

The Church Apostasy Was Complete 2,000 Years Ago

Many believe there is going to be some big revival before Jesus comes to set up His reign on this physical earth for the symbolic 1,000 years.  But the little flock, the few there be that shall find the way to know Him is the plan for this age, real faith is quite rare.

Luk 18:8 I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?

Isa 13:12 I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.

False Christ’s and other jesus’s and many different gospels had already invaded the early church when the Bible was still being written. None of us had any chance to come to the truth first, we were born into startling and absolute apostasy based on the traditions and false doctrines of Orthodox Christianity. We have many statements that tell those with ears to hear that the churches we were all born into and raised were the apostate churches, the very deceptions warned and foretold in many passages including these:

Mat 24:5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many

John and his converts were kicked out of the church as the apostasy spread.

3Jn 1:9 I wrote unto the church: but Diotrephes, who loveth to have the preeminence among them, receiveth us not.

3Jn 1:10 Wherefore, if I come, I will remember his deeds which he doeth, prating against us with malicious words: and not content therewith, neither doth he himself receive the brethren, and forbiddeth them that would, and casteth them out of the church.

Paul had warned clearly what was “soon” to take place.  Nobody took heed and neither does anyone today.

Act 20:28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

Act 20:29 For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.

Act 20:30 Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.

ALL the churches and all they in Asia forsook Paul and fell into apostasy.

2Ti 1:15 This thou knowest, that all they which are in Asia be turned away from me; of whom are Phygellus and Hermogenes.

 People think the Protestant Reformation was a good thing (LOL).  All it did was serve to add a whole new layer of apostasy and deception, line upon line precept upon precept, so the people would go backwards and be snared and taken (Isa 28:13).  Even the beloved Titus fell away into fornicating with the world.

2Ti 4:10 For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica; Crescens to Galatia, Titus unto Dalmatia.

2Ti 4:11 Only Luke is with me. Take Mark, and bring him with thee: for he is profitable to me for the ministry.

It was far worse than just Alexander the coppersmith,  it was ALL.  The road is indeed narrow and lonely by the world’s standards.

Joh 6:66 From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.

The carnal mind that is drawn to Christ will of course consider the falling away and the great apostasy as some future event that foretells the end of this physical world. But such is not the case and here is what has happened since the above warnings about another jesus were first written.

2Ti 3:13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.

Even the basic tenants of the true gospel, THE MILK, have been poisoned by the organized churches of men. There is not one single truth I learned correctly in any of my years in Catholic or Methodist churches. All is leavened and the Scriptures even tell us this is the case, it is the Lord’s plan.  Bread and water refer to the truth of God’s word and it has all been removed.

Isa 3:1 For, behold, the Lord, the LORD of hosts, doth take away from Jerusalem and from Judah the stay and the staff, the whole stay of bread, and the whole stay of water,

Isa 3:2 The mighty man, and the man of war, the judge, and the prophet, and the prudent, and the ancient,

Isa 3:3 The captain of fifty, and the honourable man, and the counsellor, and the cunning artificer, and the eloquent orator.

Isa 3:4 And I will give children to be their princes, and babes (carnal ones) shall rule over them.

The Elect of God still in Babylon are ruled over by carnal babes who are the very ministers and teachers in all of orthodox Christianity. It is hard to fathom with the carnal mind, but we are told there are 200 MILLION lies or false doctrines in Babylon.

Rev 9:16 And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.

Babylon being all the institutions of religion of men be that Christian, Jewish, Muslin, Buddhist, Hindu, Athieism, and others, still this number is unfathomable which is why being outside of Christ is said to be utter darkness.    With some many lies, the difficulty is picking the top 40 to briefly comment on in this post, so here it goes.

Gal 4:10

Rom 14:5-6

All of these false doctrines are how we first come to know “Jesus” thru the apostate churches that are in the wilderness and separated from the one true God. These many called but not chosen have not yet been given the gift of faith nor have their hearts been prepared to hear the truth.

Psa 10:17 LORD, thou hast heard the desire of the humble: thou wilt prepare their heart, thou wilt cause thine ear to hear:

Yet God’s Elect, the few chosen that do have the truth will speak the truths to those God puts into their path. And it is thru the foolishness of us preaching and sharing these truths that are hated and rejected of men by which a few will be saved. They will hear the words of Christ we speak and will come out of Babylon.

Rev 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

Rom 10:16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?

Rom 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Some will hear and there is great joy in heaven when even one lost sheep among thousands is found by the foolishness of our preaching.

Mat 13:9 Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

All of these doctrines run together and cannot be separated. This is because the Scriptures cannot be broken and they are the very foundation, the bones upon which the Body of Christ thrives. Lord willing I will add more to this in the future but I had to start somewhere.

Joh 10:35 … the scripture cannot be broken

None of Babylon’s false doctrines have any support in Scriptures properly divided.  We must test everything and try the spirits to see if they are of God.  The apostasy is not some future event,  you and me were born into it, hundreds of years after the fact.

1Jn 4:1  Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. 

Of course, the Lord must first give us ears to hear and a love for the truth before we can have the ability to try the spirits.  But anyone reading this blog in depth is likely to be there or be close as the Spirit of the Lord is stirring your heart to seek out the truth.  I encourage you to dig deep and you will be amazed at how wide and pervasive are the lies we all first come to know about God.  The treasure in the WORD is the true doctrines and they are hidden from carnal eyes and lazy spirits.  We must dig for them and I hope you have that zeal for the things of God.

Pro 25:2  It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter. 

Joh 2:17  And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up. 

What the carnal babes who rule in Babylon fail to consider are some essential and immutable facts of God’s words that they must not violate when seeking the truth. These include.

Psalm 119:160  The sum of Thy word is truth.  It is the SUM, not some of God’s word which is true.  Taking part of the word to the exclusion of other parts is a guaranteed way of being ensnared by the cords of Babylon’s false doctrines.

2 Peter 1:20  Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private (its own) interpretation.   Don’t try to take a scripture and build a doctrine on it like eternal hell when we are clearly shown God’s mercy endures forever.  This is sure fire clue you have a bad translation from the apostates who preceded you by 2,000 years.  The whole approach to preaching in orthodox churches is to read a scripture then spend 30 minutes rambling with carnal wisdom on what that Scripture means.  To understand a Scripture one must look to other Scriptures, bringing multiple witnesses and treasure out of both the old and new testaments.  Lord willing you will come out from the rule of the carnal babes masquerading as teachers of the faithful.

 1 Cor 2:13  Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. The carnal mind likes to compare physical to spiritual or physical to physical.  Don’t do it, it is a sure fire way to stay in darkness regarding the doctrines of Jesus Christ.

The Same Lump of Clay

April 1, 2014

clay lumpI got a rather rude and condescending email today where the man totally twisted some powerful scripture to support the false doctrines he believes.   This is the second and final time I will respond to the man to whom I have shared the sincere milk of this word and corrected his assertions of several false doctrines unless the Lord grants to him repentance.

I decided to use his promotion of Romans 9 Scripture to prove his false doctrine as a teaching moment for those the Lord may be dragging.  Understanding what these Romans 9 verses actually mean is essential to knowing the true nature of the Lord and God’s plan for all men.

Question From G_______: Sure the Lord is the potter but some vessels are made to dishonor and some to honor as these verses tell us from Romans 9. God is not going to save everyone.

Romans 9:21-24Does not the potter have power over the clay, from the same lump to make one vessel for honor and another for dishonour? What if God, wanting to show His wrath and to make His power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath prepared for destruction, and that He might make known the riches of His glory on the vessels of mercy, which He had prepared beforehand for glory, even us whom He called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles?”

ANSWER: Dear G______ I find it ironic that the very verses you gave to me speak of UNIVERSAL SALVATION but you can’t even see that. The truth that all men will be saved thru Christ is right here in this passage.  In particular I am going to explore the bolded areas below from this passage that tell a great truth if one can see it.  God is not some monster wanting to pour His wrath out on us as the eternal torment doctrine teaches.  His wrath is poured out on those HE loves, it is the way salvation comes to all men in their appointed time.  Secondly, you do not understand what is meant by the word Jew and Gentile in Romans 9 and that lack of understanding will keep  you from seeing a clear “good news” message in the verses you cited.

What if God, wanting to show His wrath and to make His power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath prepared for destruction, and that He might make known the riches of His glory on the vessels of mercy, which He had prepared beforehand for glory, even us whom He called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles?

The Scriptures cited tell us God wants to show His wrath, He desires to make His power known and He will have us all to come to know the fact that He is the LORD.  A Lord of anything means He is in absolute charge of everything that happens.  Jesus is the LORD yet billions just give that fact lip service, they don’t know what being Lord means.  What the carnal mind cannot understand in its strong delusion is that Christ really is the Lord and that means He causes all things that happen to happen. In fact all Scriptures that speak to us coming to know He is the Lord speak to us going thru the wrath of God against our sins and carnal nature. That is how we come to know His true character and understand His purposes in all things. If this is not happening to you, it means you are not now a son of God and are a bastard, an illegitimate son.

Heb 12:6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.
Heb 12:7 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?
Heb 12:8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.

The scourging and chastening is God’s wrath.  This is the righteous judgment of God poured out on our flesh which is how we all learn righteousness.

Isa 26:9 … for when thy judgments are in the earth (and not one moment prior) , the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.

and we are that earth, this speaks of our bodies and our minds.

Jer 22:29 O earth, earth, earth, hear the word of the LORD.

Heretofore you could not see it and maybe you still can’t?  This is because false doctrines like the Trinity doctrine, eternal torment and man having free will, are keeping you blinded and solidly under the influence of Babylonian doctrines.  This is the Lord’s doing as He is the only one who can open ears and eyes and give the understanding of the truth.  We have no say so in that.  The Babylonian teaching that anyone can pick up a Bible and read and teach themselves the truth is a lie.  All of it is written in parables and the events themselves are parables and that is to hide the meaning so said the Lord.

Mat 13:10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?
Mat 13:11 He 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.
Mat 13:12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.
Mat 13:13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.

So it is not your fault but you are not currently in the truth and are believing the lies of Babylon.  Everyone one of your doctrines is based on the apostate church and is what we all learn when we first come to Christ. But it is another jesus and a different gospel. We must live by every word God spoke and that includes first being deceived and walking in strong delusion once we come to know Christ in the flesh. The Lord will have mercy on us all in our appointed times but know what Christ said about why He came into this world.

Joh 9:39 And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.
Joh 9:40 And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blind also?
Joh 9:41 Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.

All the time we claim we see we are blind. Unless and until the Lord shows us via our own road to Damascus experience, we are still in darkness and separated from the truth by the veil of flesh and our sins remain. A big problem in your theology is that you do not currently know who is true jew and by extension who are the gentiles. I will help you with that Lord willing.

Rom 2:28 FOR HE IS NOT A JEW, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:
Rom 2:29 But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.

Here is another witness to what matters and tells us clearly who is ISRAEL in this age.

Gal 6:15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.
Gal 6:16 and as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.

Lastly,  these words of Christ are some we must commit to our memory.  Being a Jew in the flesh profits itself NOTHING.

Joh 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.

So when you read Romans 9 as you cited to me and forget who a real Jew is, you don’t understand what is being said. If you could only keep this truth in your head when you look at Scripture maybe you would be given to understand what Paul actually said in Romans 9. What Paul said is that God will make known the riches of His glory (which is Christ in you, the hope of Glory), not only to the true Jews (God’s Elect now, the true Jews who are one inwardly) but eventually to everyone else who is not now a Jew (i.e. THE GENTILES or anotherwords ALL MEN). There are only two types of men, Jews and Gentiles. Those in the covenant of faith and those that are not. Eventually all will be real “jews” but we will have to wait until the lake of fire for the multitudes to be brought into the true faith.

And what you do not realize or believe is that the process of salvation, Christ being formed in us, comes with the wrath of God being poured out on the first adam, the marred vessel of clay that cannot nor was ever intended to inherit the kingdom of God. No man enters into Christ (the real one) any other way.

Rev 15:8 And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues (OF WRATH) of the seven angels were fulfilled.

 

Exo 6:6 Wherefore say unto the children of Israel, I am the LORD, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will rid you out of their bondage, and I will redeem you with a stretched out arm, and with great judgments:

God is merciful and patient with the marred vessels of clay HE made thru Jesus Christ. As the Scriptures you shared tell us, the first Adam, the vessel of dishonor is prepared for destruction!!!

In case you missed it, look also right here in the same Romans 9 you cited your Scripture from. You must know who Israel is to have any chance of understanding the Scriptures.

Rom 9:6 Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel:
Rom 9:7 Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called.
Rom 9:8 That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.

Can it be any clearer? THEY ARE NOT THE CHILDREN OF GOD who are jews of the flesh! This error is a gigantic log in your eye that I am pointing out to you as it was pointed out to me in times past. We all first learn lies and then if the Lord has mercy, those tares are gathered and burned in the fire of the truth of God’s word. You like all of us who come to Christ at first, have been taught by men. You are still in Babylon, infected with the leprosy of their false doctrines. My last post spoke about the need to try the spirits and weed out false doctrines and this error of who is a jew and a gentile is huge.

The verses you cited about the vessels of honor and dishonor are awesome truths if we are given to correctly apply the Scriptures. Here is the passage again you sent me to prove God is not saving everybody and is going to pour his wrath out on these vessels of dishonor.

Romans 9:21-24Does not the potter have power over the clay, from the same lump to make one vessel for honor and another for dishonour? What if God, wanting to show His wrath and to make His power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath prepared for destruction, and that He might make known the riches of His glory on the vessels of mercy, which He had prepared beforehand for glory, even us whom He called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles?”

We, all men are both of these vessels. That is the SAME ONE LUMP. We come into this world as the first adam, marred in the hands of the potter, conceived in a body of sinful flesh. We can’t help but sin as the one lawgiver put the law of sin and death into our members.  Here is a key verse that helps one understand the two vessels from the one lump of clay.

Jer 18:4 And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it.

The vessels of honor that you and I at first will assume are that evil man down the street is you and me.   We all are the vessel of dishonor before the Lord in His appointed time remakes us into the vessel of honor that can enter the kingdom of God.  Learn to apply Scripture inwardly.  Who did Paul blame his sinful ways on? It was not him, but sin, the law of “sin and death”  specifically that the potter put into him In fact we are told this twice in Romans 7.

Rom 7:17 Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.

It is not man that does it, all the evil in the world, including every sin is caused by God. All things is all things and yes that includes our very sins.

Isa 63:17  O LORD, why hast thou made us to err from thy ways, and hardened our heart from thy fear? Return for thy servants’ sake, the tribes of thine inheritance.

Pro 16:4 The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.

Isa 45:7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.

Amo 3:6 Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? shall there be evil in a city (inward or outward cities), and the LORD hath not done it?

God has not lost control. The devil is not running around loose outside of God’s control, LOL that is all carnal doctrines that result from believing the lies of the harlot.

But this is God’s plan for all men. We come in naked in sinful flesh and then that old man is destroyed in order for the new man, the Lord from heaven to come forth. All men will live this sequence of Scriptures as we will live by every word God spoke.  This explains the two vessels from the one lump and I hope you can believe it.

1Co 15:43 It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:
1Co 15:44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.
1Co 15:45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.
1Co 15:46 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.
1Co 15:47 The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.
1Co 15:48 As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.
1Co 15:49 And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.
1Co 15:50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.

All Israel is not Israel right now (only God’s elect are Israel) but in the end All Israel shall be saved which simply means the potter will finish His work and remake all things.

Rev 21:5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.

I hope the Lord will give you the right spirit and open your ears to receive His truths and grant you the same repentance He granted to me from my former ignorance. If you have sincere questions please submit them to me but know this commandment given to servants of the Lord.

2Ti 2:24 And the servant of the Lord must not strive (quarrel); but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient,
2Ti 2:25 In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance (Given to men, no free will involved) to the acknowledging of the truth;
2Ti 2:26 And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.

Take Heed of False Doctrines

March 19, 2014

Lonely_RoadThe way of the truth is not only narrow but we are also told only a few there be shall find it.  So it might seem a little lonely until we are given to understand who is Jesus Christ and brought together in fellowship with these other like minded believers which are the true Body of Christ.  It is in that fellowship where Christ is in the midst and we are taught of the Lord.  The sum of the word is truth and that truth is comprised of the doctrines of Jesus Christ which is also what saves us.  We are admonished to place great importance on doctrine and warned throughout of false doctrines that really are false gods and another jesus.

1Ti 4:16  Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.

Carnal minded men that walk after the flesh have corrupted the true doctrines of Jesus Christ and that corruption was completed even before the Bible was finished being written.  What we see today in orthodox Christianity is all lies, there is no truth, every single doctrine has been corrupted with idols. Other recent posts have covered the truth that we only come into understanding the true doctrines of Christ if we are so chosen of God and He sends that rain upon the land within our hearts and minds.

Deu_32:2 My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass: 

Pro_4:2 For I give you good doctrine, forsake ye not my law. (Christ doctrines not law of Moses)

Being Vigilant

Only the few Elect will learn sound doctrine and this only by the process of being dragged to Christ as babes and weaned off the milk of Jesus Christ and Him Crucified that is all Babylon can receive.  So this post won’t make much sense to those that are yet carnal and stuck on the milk and unable to move beyond.  But I know some of you will understand.

Isa_28:9  Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. 

Once we are given as God’s Israel the true doctrines by the revelation of Jesus Christ, we must never let our guard down and be vigilant in guarding our spiritual hearts and what we eat.  The story of how God chose the 300 warriors with Gideon tells us how important being vigilant is to the Lord.  Only those who drank water by cupping their hands while not taking their eyes off the perimeter (taking heed) were chosen to fight for the Lord.

Jdg 7:6  And the number of them that lapped, putting their hand to their mouth, were three hundred men: but all the rest of the people bowed down upon their knees to drink water. 

Jdg 7:7  And the LORD said unto Gideon, By the three hundred men that lapped will I save you, and deliver the Midianites into thine hand: and let all the other people go every man unto his place. 

There is great significance in this story and many others we will explore in this post.  Tolerating false doctrines in our fellowship and calling that loving our neighbor is one of the most insidious wiles of the devil .  The Lord is very serious about His truths and considers any cankering of His gold and silver to be a serious abomination.  This post will explore that seriousness and help us to see just how narrow the way of life is.  Many are called but very few will find the way thru the narrow gate.

Mat 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

Mat 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

The broad way and wide gate is where we are at when we do not take heed to our doctrine.  We will go along with the traditions of this world and not heed the Lord’s commandments yet we will claim to be loving people.  As a brother likes to say we will be going along to get along and this is deception.  The way of life is truly narrow and we must strive to stay on that path working out our own salvation with fear and trembling.

Php 2:12  Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. 

Purging out ALL of the false doctrines of Babylon is essential if we are to move on to maturity and become sons of God and rule in the millennium. Being in this first resurrection is the prize, the crown of life for which we press onward and upward for as there is no greater honor in the kingdom of God.  God is not looking for the weak of faith who will not obey all of His commandments and separate themselves from false doctrines.  There are so many esnamples of this message given to us in the Old Testament but very few can hear these messages and even fewer are given the faith to obey them. One of the most insidious false doctrines is the one that has tolerance and acceptance of others disobedience as love.  The mantra is let’s just “love” everyone and get along.  While we are to love everyone, we are also as spiritual man to judge all things and we must know the very definition of love.

1Co 2:15  But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. 

This false love mantra has snared many an aspiring man of God who are stuck as carnal babes and can’t move beyond the milk of the word.  We can not approach the world with the idea of going along to get along, that is a wile of the devil.  We must walk the narrow path, which is fraught with error on both sides or else we can easily run astray into a spiritual ditch.

Before we get into several examples of Scripture, we must not forget these admonitions on false doctrines first and foremost apply to us and what goes on inwardly in our wicked and deceitful hearts.  Don’t put all of this out there on the fool down the street.  No this is you and me in our season and yes it also includes outward applications on who we fellowship with and where we break bread and discuss the the doctrines of Jesus Christ.

The Mixed Multitude

In type and shadow we see that when we first leave Egypt, this mixed multitude and all of their flocks go along with us.

Exo_12:38  And a mixed multitude went up also with them; and flocks, and herds, even very much cattle.

Symbolically, in type and shadow, the mixed multitude represents the mixture of flesh and spirit and specifically the combination of the true doctrines of God with man’s carnal reasoning’s.   It is simply the fruit of spiritual fornication and ensures the doctrine and the people would not be pure and will remain  unclean.  From the outside the mixed multitude will look like the real deal, looks like Jesus, sounds like Jesus but it is another jesus and is a lie.  At first we won’t know the difference and will only come to know the error of allowing this mixed multitude into our spiritual houses later as we mature and our used of God to build His wall. The mixed multitude within us and without (others outside the true church) will lead us into whoredom with other gods and away from the purity that is Jesus Christ.  They were the ones that lead Israel away from its suffering for the sake of righteousness and grumbled of the requirements of God and ultimately spoiled the entire camp in the wilderness.

Num 11:4  And the mixt multitude that was among them fell a lusting: and the children of Israel also wept again, and said, Who shall give us flesh to eat?

Num 11:5  We remember the fish, which we did eat in Egypt freely; the cucumbers, and the melons, and the leeks, and the onions, and the garlick:

Num 11:6  But now our soul is dried away: there is nothing at all, beside this manna, before our eyes.

And remember I can’t say this enough, don’t think this is that deceived person over there, this is you and me as we start out on our journey to the truth and understanding the mysteries of the kingdom.   It takes time for us to mature and we all will bring flesh along with the Spirit initially.  Lord willing we will be given to move beyond the error.

If you read this entire story it was about the mixed multitude getting Israel to complain to God they had no meat.  God answers their compliant and idol by giving them tons of quail but they were not yet able to eat that meat and many died.  This weak grumbling spirit of the mixed multitude will not be willing to pay the cost of true discipleship.  This spirit is of the flesh and must be cast out.  We must not allow weaker brothers or sisters in the faith to bring in their doubtful disputation, whining and grumbling and the deadly leaven that spoils the bread of life.

Rom 14:1  Him that is weak in the faith receive ye, but not to doubtful disputations.

Those building the wall of the Temple in Nehemiah when they discovered their error, quickly separated from them.

Neh_13:3  Now it came to pass, when they had heard the law, that they separated from Israel all the mixed multitude.

This may not seem very loving to those yet carnal babes but God is serious about it.  We are to do the same and that includes not only the doctrines within us but also those we allow into our spiritual houses.  A common leaven brought into the true church relates to wanting to keep months, days, times and seasons as Paul spoke about in Galatians and Romans 14.  Not going to get into that here except to just state, giving those days up is a stumbling block to the spirit of the mixed multitude.  This spirit is willing to give God most of the glory but still clings to parts of the old man in order to avoid the persecution and rejection God’s Elect must incur from those called but not chosen.  Carnal babes that are not given repentance from their heresy on day keeping or any false doctrine need to be put out of our fellowship as we are told.  Here is Paul loving advice on how to deal with those who bring such leaven.

1Co 5:7  Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:

1Co 5:8  Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

1Co 5:9  I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators: (spiritual fornicators)

1Co 5:10  Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world.

1Co 5:11  But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.

BABYLON’s FALSE LOVE

The true Israel of God will tremble at the word and be very serious about weeding out all false doctrines and false brethren from their midst.  It is a wile of the devil to get us to compromise “did God really say” and rationalize the little bit of leaven to enter into our midst.  The flesh has even come up with the word love to define such compromise and what is wrong with just getting along with people and living in peace?  What is wrong with that is that it is not love by God’s very definition.  It is deception and rebellion against the commandments of God. Don’t let this mix multitude pretender spirit fool you.

1Jn 5:2  By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.

1Jn 5:3  For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

We are told that the truth has no lie in it, and it is the whole truth, the unadulterated truth that will set us free and deliver us from our bondage.  Fitting in with this world and avoiding persecution is fornicating with this world, playing the harlot and we all will do unless and until the Lord burns it out of us.  But deceived men will continue to claim the name of God and bring lies mixed with the truth and call that love.   Any lie we may be living ensures we have not the truth.  There is no lie in the truth.

1Jn 2:21  I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth.

We have to separate from these false doctrines and those that bring them in, unless they repent of their sin.    This is a serious commandment.  The carnal mind will oh so easily rationalize away what the Lord is really doing.

Luk 12:51 Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division:

2Co 6:14  Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

2Co 6:15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

2Co 6:16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

2Co 6:17  Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,

In my past immaturity, I was unwise in dealings with those who had some truth but also brought in leaven and cankered God’s true gold.    Those that do this, which will be all of us in our times;  are fornicating with their father the devil’s wife.  We are to have nothing to do with his harlot wife and need to get her and her lies out of our presence. Lest we think this is harsh and unloving let’s see what the Scriptures say.

1Co 5:1  It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, (mixing truth with lies) and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father’s wife (the harlot)

Eating in Scriptures refers to the doctrines we believe and take to heart.  We are not to be eating with any so called man of God who hold to these idols, is drunk on false gospels and fornicating with the harlot.  We are not to let them into our spiritual houses.

1Co 5:11  But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.

This eating speaks about fellowship and discussing the things of God.  We are to separate from all who bring this fornication and walk as men committing whoredom with the world.  The carnal mind won’t accept this as love but that is what it is as doing it is obedience to the Lord.  We have some more loving words on this topic from the Apostle John that those plagued by Babylonian diseases do not appreciate and want to ignore.

2Jn 1:9  Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.

2Jn 1:10  If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:

2Jn 1:11  For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

Somebody bringing  the Trinity, Eternal Torment, Free Will, the fall of mankind, holiday keeping, etc is abiding NOT in the doctrine of Christ and we are given very clear instructions on what we are to do. A wise scribe will bring the truth, the treasures of God’s word out of both the old and the new.  Hopefully we know that all the Old Testament was written as ensamples, types and shadows of spiritual lessons God’s Elect would be living by every word.

1Co 10:11  Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.

Let’s look at a few of these Old Testament  stories, there are many to pick from.

Deuteronomy 7

These physical commands given to flesh Israel are types of what we are to exercise in the land and the kingdoms within us.  These commands that speak of the land are speaking of what is in our hearts and minds.  We must not fornicate worldly logic and mix it with the truth of God’s word and His commandments. Doing such is cankering the gold and that is what Babylon has indeed done.

Jas 5:3  Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you

Here are the commandments of the Lord about keeping our land clear of false doctrines.

Deu 7:1  When the LORD thy God shall bring thee into the land whither thou goest to possess it, and hath cast out many nations before thee, the Hittites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier than thou;

Deu 7:2  And when the LORD thy God shall deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them:

Deu 7:3  Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son.

Deu 7:4  For they will turn away thy son from following me, that they may serve other gods: so will the anger of the LORD be kindled against you, and destroy thee suddenly.

We cannot let this happen or like King Solomon we will apostasize and stop following the one true God.  We must do what seems harsh to the world and the carnal mind, we must utterly destroy all those idols and false images of God and burn them with His word.

Deu 7:5  But thus shall ye deal with them; ye shall destroy their altars, and break down their images, and cut down their groves, and burn their graven images with fire.

Deu 7:6  For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.

Deu 7:7  The LORD did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people:

We are to test all things and to try the spirits. If we really took this to heed and did this with ears to hear we would readily see the leaven in the doctrines being served to us and we would stop eating it.  Here is what we are commanded to do with all of the idols of flesh and carnal mindedness that would have us pervert the truth of God’s word and lead His people astray.

Deu 7:25 The graven images of their gods shall ye burn with fire: thou shalt not desire the silver or gold that is on them, nor take it unto thee, lest thou be snared therein: for it is an abomination to the LORD thy God.

Many are called and only few are chosen to be God’s Elect.  If we are God’s Elect once shown the truth, we will obey this commandment.  Beware the leaven of the Pharisees which simply means the doctrines of the churches of men.

Joshua 7

In the taking of Jericho, which in type is overcoming our old man within, we are given a harsh lesson on the seriousness of keeping God’s doctrine pure.  A man named Achan secretly brought back some gold and silver and other treasures and brought a curse upon Israel.  The man had to be put out from among them and that was the love of God.

Jos 7:20 And Achan answered Joshua, and said, Indeed I have sinned against the LORD God of Israel, and thus and thus have I done:

Jos 7:21 When I saw among the spoils a goodly Babylonish garment, and two hundred shekels of silver, and a wedge of gold of fifty shekels weight, then I coveted them, and took them; and, behold, they are hid in the earth in the midst of my tent, and the silver under it.

The silver and the gold are the false doctrines of Babylon that need to be purged not hid in our earth!

Jos 7:22 So Joshua sent messengers, and they ran unto the tent; and, behold, it was hid in his tent, and the silver under it.

Jos 7:23And they took them out of the midst of the tent, and brought them unto Joshua, and unto all the children of Israel, and laid them out before the LORD.

Jos 7:24And Joshua, and all Israel with him, took Achan the son of Zerah, and the silver, and the garment, and the wedge of gold, and his sons, and his daughters, and his oxen, and his asses, and his sheep, and his tent, and all that he had: and they brought them unto the valley of Achor.

Israel takes all this Babylonian stuff, the doctrines, the garment of self-righteousness, all the instruments of work and takes it outside the camp where it will be burned with fire.  God is very serious about His word.

Jos 7:25 And Joshua said, Why hast thou troubled us? the LORD shall trouble thee this day. And all Israel stoned him with stones, and burned them with fire, after they had stoned them with stones.

Jos 7:26And they raised over him a great heap of stones unto this day. So the LORD turned from the fierceness of his anger. Wherefore the name of that place was called, The valley of Achor, unto this day.

Leviticus 14

The law gave us in types and shadows the truth on how God’s Elect are to deal with false doctrines.  Those false doctrines are likened to leprosy, a deadly incurable disease.  All traces of leprosy had to be removed diligently and with thorough inspection. Such is the case with the doctrines of Jesus Christ, the way is narrow and just a little bit of leaven spoils the entire lump.  So removing all specks of error and carnality is of the utmost importance.  Here this truth in these commands in Leviticus 14, knowing God’s Elect are the priests and the house is the temple of God that is within us.

Lev 14:34  When ye be come into the land of Canaan, which I give to you for a possession, and I put the plague of leprosy in a house of the land of your possession;

God puts the false doctrines in our houses, He sends them to us in order to try us and see if we will keep His commandments about keeping His doctrines pure.

Lev 14:35 And he that owneth the house shall come and tell the priest, saying, It seemeth to me there is as it were a plague in the house:

Lev 14:36Then the priest shall command that they empty the house, before the priest go into it to see the plague, that all that is in the house be not made unclean: and afterward the priest shall go in to see the house:

Lev 14:37  And he shall look on the plague, and, behold, if the plague be in the walls of the house with hollow strakes, greenish or reddish, which in sight are lower than the wall;

Lev 14:38  Then the priest shall go out of the house to the door of the house, and shut up the house seven days:

Lev 14:39  And the priest shall come again the seventh day, and shall look: and, behold, if the plague be spread in the walls of the house;

I am abbreviating the story here as it is quite long and meticulous telling us just how serious this issue is.  We are to identify and get everything out of our house that is not the true gold of God’s word.

Lev 14:40 Then the priest shall command that they take away the stones in which the plague is, and they shall cast them into an unclean place without the city:

Lev 14:41 And he shall cause the house to be scraped within round about, and they shall pour out the dust that they scrape off without the city into an unclean place:

Scraping the walls to get every tiny speck of false doctrine out of our house.  This is how serious God is and it is amazing how blind we can be and rationalize away the seriousness of God’s word and call that love.

Lev 14:42  And they shall take other stones, and put them in the place of those stones; and he shall take other morter, and shall plaister the house.

Lev 14:43  And if the plague come again, and break out in the house, after that he hath taken away the stones, and after he hath scraped the house, and after it is plaistered;

Lev 14:44  Then the priest shall come and look, and, behold, if the plague be spread in the house, it is a fretting leprosy in the house: it is unclean.

Lev 14:45  And he shall break down the house, the stones of it, and the timber thereof, and all the morter of the house; and he shall carry them forth out of the city into an unclean place.

Lev 14:46  Moreover he that goeth into the house all the while that it is shut up shall be unclean until the even.

Lev 14:47  And he that lieth in the house shall wash his clothes; and he that eateth in the house shall wash his clothes.

Lev 14:54  This is the law for all manner of plague of leprosy, and scall,

The Amalekites – 1 Samuel 15

This is a story of King Saul, the rejected anointed first man “carnal” man Adam in all of us.  Saul is told to go and destroy the Amalekites and leave nothing alive and to kill all including animals, woman and children.

1Sa 15:3 Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass.

This again tells us how serious God is about cleansing our heavens and clearing the land of all that defiles and He is speaking of our doctrine.  But Saul disobeys and when confronted with this sin, tries to say He did obey the commandment and rationalizes the disobedience as we all do when we hold to false doctrines and keep holidays or believe lies lie the trinity.  We are serving another jesus and have not the living God abiding in us when we do such things.  You and me will all be this rebellious person until and unless the Lord grants to us mercy.

1Sa 15:20  And Saul said unto Samuel, Yea, I have obeyed the voice of the LORD, and have gone the way which the LORD sent me, and have brought Agag the king of Amalek, and have utterly destroyed the Amalekites.

Look at the justification for the sin.  He blames it on the others, what the crowd is doing, the majority and states they took these things so they could use them in their worship of God.  That is the sacrifice.  This is an abomination to the Lord as we saw in Deut 7.  We cannot take the practices and doctrines of the heathen and attach Jesus to it and they claim it is okay.   That is exactly what man has done with regards to keeping of times, days, and seasons such as Christmas, Easter and Birthdays.

1Sa 15:21But the people took of the spoil, sheep and oxen, the chief of the things which should have been utterly destroyed, to sacrifice unto the LORD thy God in Gilgal.

And then the prophet of the Lord has to correct the carnal minded rebellious Saul who will not be able to enter into the kingdom of God.

1Sa 15:22 And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.

The penalty is very harsh.  The Lord will have nothing to do with Saul or our rebellion and playing the harlot with this world.  The way is indeed narrow.

1Sa 15:23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.

And Samuel, a type of God’s Elect does what we are commanded to do and that is to separate and no longer even eat a meal with a so called brother who brings in false doctrines.

1Sa 15:26 And Samuel said unto Saul, I will not return with thee: for thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, and the LORD hath rejected thee from being king over Israel.

Samuel also then does what Saul did not do and put the heathen king to death with a sword.

1Sa 15:33And Samuel hewed Agag in pieces before the LORD in Gilgal.

There are several more stories in the Old Testament that tell of this same commandment to guard our hearts and not let this false deception of “love” and “tolerance” enter into the camp of Israel.  We truly must take heed of our doctrine and try the spirits to see if they are of God.  We must never lose track of the definition for the love of God, it is not pleasing men.

1Ti 4:16 Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.

CONCLUSION

Many that come into knowledge of the truth will fall away.  We all will do it as we must live by every word.  But you can be sure if a message is popular with many, than it is likely not a true doctrine of Jesus Christ.  His doctrines don’t please flesh and are a stumbling block.  Don’t let this happen to you.

2Ti_4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears

We must examine ourselves to see if we are in the true faith.  Many have gone astray, gone the way of Baalam who for gain and acceptance disobeyed God and caused Israel to commit whoredeom with the world.  We always remember the talking donkey story but may fail to realize that later on, Baalam did indeed succeed in causing God’s Elect to commitment whoredom and mix carnal logic with God’s truth.  We must get it out of our fellowship and have nothing to do with it.

Num_31:16 Behold, these caused the children of Israel, through the counsel of Balaam, to commit trespass against the LORD in the matter of Peor, and there was a plague (spiritual leprosy) among the congregation of the LORD. 

Don’t let this plague come on you, take heed to thy doctrine.  We are multiple warnings against committing this error and allowing it to overtake us in our narrow walk.

Jud 1:11Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.

Rev_2:14  But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.

Not everyone or everything is Holy as the carnal mind and spirit of Korah will want to claim.  Woe unto us when we water down the word of God to be accepted by those around us and remove from ourselves the persecution that inevitably arises when we stand firm.  If we are not worthy to carry the cross of Christ, we simply are not worthy of Him and will not be in the first resurrection.

Mat 10:38  And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.

That is really what is happening when we give in to the schemes of Satan and fall for this deception of false love and make fitting in and being accepted the will of our other jesus.  Anything we do to take away the reproach from others and the enmity the world will have against God’s Elect we are making our own bread and have left the doctrines of Jesus Christ.   This is self righteousness and we had best take heed of this error and trap.

Isa 4:1  And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach.

Wearing a coat of many colors as given to us by God will cause the world to hate us even without a cause.

Joh 15:25  But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.

God’s Elect will follow their Lord and they too shall be hated without a cause.  Anyone compromising the doctrines of Christ is seeking to avoid carrying the cross.  Unless they are given repentance, we should keep ourselves withdrawn from all such men that call themselves brothers.

1Ti 6:3  If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;

1Ti 6:4  He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings,

1Ti 6:5  Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.

So be caution and keep your guard up knowing that many deceivers have gone out into this world.  We must know our bibles and stay in fellowship with the Body of Christ if we are going to stay on this narrow path.  Remember, the way is hard, it is narrow, we cannot take out our part of this book and living by every word.  If we find ourselves doing things to please men and fit in with those in the world, keeping holidays as an example, then you can be sure one has strayed off the path.    Here is a very serious warning to all regarding sound doctrine.

Rev 22:18  For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

Rev 22:19  And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

Lord willing I will no longer be blaspheming His name and preaching false doctrine like I did in my former ignorance.  The true doctrines are so much more than just the salvation of all men and His Elect, we must be given to go beyond this milk if we have hope of being in the first resurrection.  The fire of God is burning in my belly and the zeal of His house has consumed my old man and has led me to become a speaker of the true gospel that is founded on sound doctrine.

Tit_2:1  But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine:

Growing To See the Fullness of Christ

March 16, 2014

imagesThe many called of God will first come to know Jesus Christ only in the flesh.  From out of the multitudes that know Christ in the flesh,  the Lord will drag a few chosen thru the veil of flesh into the realm of the spirit.  These few are God’s Elect who are given this blessing and the spiritual healing that comes with it.  It is when this veil is removed that our blindness is healed and we are given to see and to hear spiritually.  With ears to hear and eyes to see,  such blessed men and woman will be given to see past the letter of the Scripture and begin to understand the mysteries of the kingdom.

Mat 20:34  So Jesus had compassion on them, and touched their eyes: and immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed him. 

2Co 3:14  But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ. 

Unless and until this happens, all the Lord’s doing, we will not understand what is really being said in the Scriptures.  I can attest we will think otherwise but will have no clue until Christ is revealed to us in our appointed times.

Joh 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. 

At this stage of our walk we are yet carnal and remain unconverted. We may well have cleaned up the outside of our cup while in Babylon and will be doing many good works, but the fact remains our hearts will not be circumcised until the Lord returns a second time to bring judgment against our old man and carnal nature.  We won’t know Him and have eternal life abiding in us, until our “day of the Lord” has begun in earnest.

Heb 9:28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

Christ will come again to make war in our heavens and that is how salvation will come and how we will then know He is the Lord.

Rev 12:7  And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 

Rev 12:8  And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 

Rev 12:9  And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. 

Rev 12:10  And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. 

For a great article on where is heaven, click here.

Once faith has come and the Spirit given to God’s Elect (no free will involved) then as babes we will learn and grow quickly.  The original Apostles who walked with Christ for 3.5 years remained unconverted themselves and Pentecost was just the beginning of their walk in the Spirit. They still had everything to learn and much to unlearn as the Scriptures tell us as they matured in the true faith.  We like Peter and ALL disciples will think we are already converted and see when we are still blind as bats not knowing who Christ truly is.

Luk 18:34 And they understood none of these things: and this saying was hid from them, neither knew they the things which were spoken. 

Luk 22:32 But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.  (We can’t do the works of God until faith comes and the Spirit is given)

Mat 26:35 Peter said unto him, Though I should die with thee, yet will I not deny thee. Likewise also said all the disciples (you and me all of us will live these words, it was not just Peter)

Joh 9:39 And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind. 

There is no avoiding it.  We can’t shortcut God’s plan and not live the words of God that say we will first serve Him in the flesh but not know Him in the spirit.  Before we know the real Jesus and understand Christ we will follow and know Him only in the flesh and will have no spiritual understanding as carnal babes in Babylon.  But a day will come when the Lord returns to make war in our heavens and that is when we will begin to be taught the deep mysteries of the kingdom and know Christ in spirit

2Co 5:16 Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more. 

2Co 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. (even the Jesus we knew in the flesh)

Understanding We Live By Every Word

Isa 55:8  For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. 

God’s ways are not the ways of the carnal mind and the carnal mind will think the ways of the Lord are foolishness.  This verse below quoted in both Matthew and Luke, from what Christ spoke in Deuteronomy is a stumbling block to those that walk after the flesh who are yet carnal and claim they see but are indeed spiritually blind.  That is all of us at one time because as we saw above when Christ comes to us the second time, those that say they are blind will be given sight and those that claim they see will be made blind.

Mat 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

Deu 8:3  And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live. 

Few are given to understand the depth of this statement by Christ. He did not say man should follow the 10 commandments when He spoke these words. That is what Babylonian doctrine teaches, the Scriptures teach something entirely different — the truth. The truth is man will live by every word God spoke in the Scriptures which is His word. Nothing will be left out and we have specific warnings in Revelation 22 about those that will add to or take away from the words of God. For those given eyes to see, they will come to know that they will live by every word in the Scriptures. This means they will see themselves in every verse of the Bible. The verses are not speaking about somebody else, they are speaking about you and me and all men in the appointed times. It does take time to grow and to fully appreciate what living every word really means but the Lord will give the increase when we are able to bear it. So when you see this you are blessed indeed as then you as the reader “will understand” and Christ’s appearing is at the very door.

Mat 24:15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)

Rev 1:3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.

CHRIST IS (not was) COME IN THE FLESH

The mystery of living by every word comes with the understanding that Christ is the first Adam (sinful marred vessel of clay, the old man with a carnal mind) and the second Adam (the Lord from heaven, the new man). Christ is the first and the last.

1Co 15:47 The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.
1Co 15:48 As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.
1Co 15:49 And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.

Christ being the alpha and the omega means that we are Jesus Christ (part of the BODY, not the head) as we come into this world as the first man Adam and in the appointed times are transformed into the Lord from heaven, the new man. Christ was made sin not when He died on the cross, but when He came in the likeness of sinful flesh. FLESH IS SIN, Christ’s flesh was sin and our flesh is sin and as God’s Elect, we are in Him and He is in us. He is the the alpha and the omega.

2Co 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

Rom 8:3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:

Heb 2:14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;

Christ having already overcome sinful flesh suffered thru all the same temptations we do yet He was without sin.  But having done this, He is our high priest and is able to give us comfort in our time of temptation.  All the lies of Babylon about Christ being immaculately conceived and having a different kind of flesh is nonsense and is another jesus. Jesus Christ HAS come and IS coming NOW, in sinful flesh.   He is in my flesh right now making war in my heavens and bringing judgment upon the old man and cleansing His temple which temple I am and all of God’s Elect will be.

Act 7:48 Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet,
Act 7:49 Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool: what house will ye build me? saith the Lord: or what is the place of my rest?

Knowing where is heaven and what the earth refers to is paramount to understand what is being said.  Anyone who denies this is still of their father the devil, is yet carnal and is antiChrist with their beliefs and are serving another jesus following a false gospel.

1Jn 4:2-3  Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God.   And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

2Jn 1:7  For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.

Israel – The Body of Christ On Which the Head Sits

Isa 49:3  And said unto me, Thou art my servant, O Israel, in whom I will be glorified. 

Understanding “The Christ” thru which Christ does all His work today is giant mystery that carnal minds will yell blasphemy when they hear such things; but they simply do not understand.  The Scriptures remains sealed unto them and it simply has not been given them to understand as many are called and only few are chosen.  God’s Elect are not Jesus Christ the head, but we are indeed Jesus Christ THE BODY.  Until Christ was resurrected in a spiritual body He had no place to lay His head and that was the parable being spoken about below.   Jesus was not suggesting we become homeless vagabonds as many carnal holy rollers will lead you to believe.  No, Jesus wanted to get on with building His church and bringing fire into the earth of His chosen vessels.

Mat 8:20  And Jesus saith unto him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head. 

Luk 12:49  I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled? 

The WORD is Christ and is within all those who are His body, the very Elect.   That same Word is also called ‘fire’ in the scriptures and lo and behold, that fire is found in the same place Christ and His Word are to be found:

Jer 5:14  Wherefore thus saith the LORD God of hosts, Because ye speak this word, behold, I will make my words in thy mouth fire, and this people wood, and it shall devour them. 

Rev 11:5  And if any man will hurt them [God's witnesses], fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.

Eventually all men will be dragged to Christ and be saved, all but the Elect at the White Throne Judgment.  Paul speaking to the Greeks at Mars Hill plainly tells us what organized religion can never accept.

Act 17:28For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.

A loving father is not going to torment his own children forever without end.  Utter carnal delusion.  So ultimately all men are Israel and Christ will dwell in all His people, but for now, God’s purposes is to save only the few His Elect.    Hence Paul wrote of this parable and riddle that continues to confound the wisdom of the wise.

Rom 9:6Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel:

Rom 11:26And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:

It is God purposes to save the many thru the few and God’s Elect, the Body of Christ will be the rulers and judges in the ages to come.  It is our speaking the words of fire that is the lake of fire and the words “of Christ” that will judge the multitudes in righteousness.  Christ made clear that it would be “the words I have spoken” which would judge all men:

Joh 12:48  He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day. 

So Christ’s words are fire in the mouths of His elect, and we are all being judged by that very same fire now in this age:

1Co 3:13  Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. 

First and Last & Alpha and Omega

Christ is the first and the last. The Alpha and Omega and all points in-between.  ALL THINGS ARE OF GOD. He causes all the  good and all the evil.  Yet the carnal mind and doctrines of Babylon have another jesus.   Lightness and darkness is the same to the Lord.

Psa 139:12 Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.

He is not evil but indeed works evil for good and creates it for His purposes.

Isa 45:7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.

Gen 50:20 But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.

Rom 8:28 And we know that ALL THINGS work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

So knowing these things, begins to unlock the mystery of what life is all about. If we are God’s Elect then we are told we are His temple, that is where He dwells right now sitting in our heavens.

1Co 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

We are God’s house if we are His Elect. Not only does judgment begin with us and we are judged first, but in our house are both honorable and dishonorable things. God uses them both to accomplish His will.

2Ti 2:20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour.

And ultimately thru judgment the dishonorable things are purged from our lives, our bodies, our minds and the heavens that are within.  The wood, hay and stubble, the dishonorable things will be purged with fire and heat.

2Ti 2:21If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.

And once He completes this refining and destruction of our carnal nature, then we as part of His Elect, His ministers of flame on this earth can be used to do the greater works that Christ spoke about.

Mal 3:3 And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness.

Heb 1:7 And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.

Joh 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

But these works cannot commence until our prior carnal works where we thought we served God but worked against Him and denied His name are burned up in the fire of His word during our judgment.

1Co 3:15 If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.

Christ being the first Adam in all of us just goes to show that it was God’s purposes for us to live every word and to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. We cannot become like gods until we do so. We have to live by every word.

Gen 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 for ever:

And this includes are very sins, the evil we commit and live by until the Lord brings judgment to us and causes us to obey His commandments.

Isa 63:17 O LORD, why hast thou made us to err from thy ways, and hardened our heart from thy fear? Return for thy servants’ sake, the tribes of thine inheritance.

Pro 16:4 The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.

While we are these bodies of flesh, full of the law of sin and death, we cannot help but sin and it is only by His grace that we are given little by little the dominion to overcome. Only God’s very Elect will be given this dominion, which is salvation in this age. The rest will be saved in the Lake of Fire.

So hopefully some of the readers will see the heresy in the carnal doctrine that man was made perfect and believe the Babylonian lie of the fall of mankind. The fact is we were created sin. Flesh is sin and nothing good dwells in it.

Psa 51:5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.

One day we will live these words and speak what David spoke and then we will understand that even Jesus Christ in a body of flesh was not good.

Mar 10:18 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.

The Scriptures, the very words we live by everyone tell us of God’s plan. We will live the darkness and live the sins that are written in the Book.

Jer 18:2 Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words.
Jer 18:3 Then I went down to the potter’s house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels.
Jer 18:4 And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it.

The details of our lives will be different but the one event will be the same and that is living by every word, and this begins with being the vessel of dishonor, the virtual sinning machine in a body of sinful flesh. We will walk in strong delusion long before in His mercy the Lord opens our eyes to see His wonderful works to the children of men.

Rom 9:21 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?

This is remarkable truth of the Lord’s plan for us all. One that we will never believe even if a man declare it unto us. We will first be mockers of this truth.

Act 13:41 Behold, ye despisers, and wonder, and perish: for I work a work in your days, a work which ye shall in no wise believe, though a man declare it unto you.

If we are so blessed to be His Elect, then the veil of flesh will be removed and the Body of Christ will come to us and open the seals from the Book. Then we shall see.

Rev 5:5 And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.
Rev 5:6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.
Rev 5:7 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.

I did not understand all of this at first. It took a couple of years of me eating the true bread from heaven and being in the midst of Christ to grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord. Now I have been given a ministry to feed the flock and to bring the lost sheep into the fold. There won’t be many of them in this age as many are called and few are chosen, yet the Lord has been faithful to give me those opportunities and to even bring forth fruit of that labor.

Praise God for Him giving the increase to seed sown and water poured out.

1Co 3:7 So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.

I can now look behind and see where the Lord has taken me. It is not me living, it is Christ living in me. I know there is much still to be lived and to learn yet for each new day we are given, I can truly say thank you Lord for the “all things” that have been given to me.

1Co 3:21 Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours;
1Co 3:22 Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours;
1Co 3:23 And ye are Christ’s; and Christ is God’s.

CHRIST RETURNS IN THE CLOUDS – HIS WITNESSES

The parable of Christ ascending into the clouds where He sits at in heaven at the right hand of God tells those with eyes to see where Christ dwells.  Carnal eyes won’t be able to see where Christ went as it must be spiritually discerned.

Act 1:9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. 

Act 1:10And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; 

Again if we know where heaven then we can begin to understand the mystery.

Act 1:11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven. 

Christ comes in the clouds, that is where everyone will see Him in due time.  Those clouds are God’s Elect.

Rev 1:7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. 

Rev_11:12And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them. 

Rev_14:14 And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle. 

The Body of Christ is the clouds, we are His witnesses, it is us who have the testimony of Jesus Christ and loved not our life unto death.

Heb 12:1Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,  

Jesus Christ has a Christ and it is these witnesses that are likened to clouds in Scripture.  These clouds are the lights unto this dark world but the cloud that is Christ is both light and darkness.  To those very few God is dragging to Himself now, the clouds will be light in the night but to those carnal multitudes in Babylon who are not being dragged, the very same cloud is utter darkness.  I have shared this Scripture lately that foretell of this mysterious way of the Lord.

Exo 14:20  And it came between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of Israel; and it was a cloud and darkness to them, but it gave light by night to these: so that the one came not near the other all the night. 

Exo 19:9  And the LORD said unto Moses, Lo, I come unto thee in a thick cloud, that the people may hear when I speak with thee, and believe thee for ever

I hope this post has brought you to see that we are Jesus Christ if we are His Elect.  We are not the head but we are the body and consider who Jesus Christ the head says we are when speaking to our persecutors.  Paul never saw the Lord when He was in His own personal body of flesh yet heed the words of the Lord.

Act 9:4  And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? 

Act 9:5  And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. 

If we can’t say this is true then it is not true.  Let the redeemed of the Lord say so.  Just like our head, we will be hated and persecuted for doing what He did.  Those in Babylon will seek to kill Christ in us that is speaking these truths.

Joh 5:18  Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God. 

It takes time to grow in our understanding of the depth of God’s wisdom and to understand the meat of His word.  We are not given it all at once, it is fed to us as we are able to receive it.

Joh 16:12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.

We will close with a review of the warnings of adding to or taking away from our part in the book.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE DENY WE LIVE BY EVERY WORD?

All of us will at first be adding to and taking away from the book of life in which the names of God’s Elect are written and in due time will include the names of all men. We have Scripture that tells us what happens and these too are words we shall live by in due time.

If we add to the words of God, we just are given more false doctrines, the plagues to deceive us and keep us blinded from the truth.

Rev 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

If we subtract or take away from the book, saying those words do not apply to us, then we have no part in the book of life which means we do not know the Lord and are following another jesus.

Rev 22:19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

When we take away from the book, we don’t know Him and have not eternal life abiding in us.

Joh 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

I pray this has helped some of you see the bigger picture and to appreciate more that it is the SUM OF THY WORD that is truth. Only taking “some” of it is another jesus.

Psa 119:160 The sum of Your word is truth

Your brother living that one event that comes alike to all of us,

Pete

Ecc 9:2 All things come alike to all: there is one event to the righteous, and to the wicked; to the good and to the clean, and to the unclean; to him that sacrificeth, and to him that sacrificeth not: as is the good, so is the sinner; and he that sweareth, as he that feareth an oath.

The Consuming Fire of God

March 13, 2014

Fires don’t burn forever.  Not in the physical nor in the spiritual.  I want to share some true things that the Lord has revealed to me since He opened my eyes and ears to hear His words that are all spirit.  The fire of God is His word as we will see and it is indeed a blessing for us to learn and be taught to abide in this fire.  Look at these verses from Isaiah 33 which foretell of this mystery.

Isa 33:14 The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?

Is this speaking of who will be in eternal hell?   Absolutely not.  The people who will be dwelling in everlasting fire are not the wicked sinners as taught by Babylon but are in fact the true people of God who have had the fire clean them up and burn out of them all things that defile.  Look at how the Holy Spirit answered the question about who should dwell in this “everlasting fire”.  It is not people being tormented for their sins.

Isa 33:15 He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil;

Those that are in this “fire” are the ones walking in righteousness having their old man destroyed, dying daily, getting their mind renewed daily by the fire of God’s word that abides within them.  The people in this fire are God’s very Elect, the ones HE is saving now in this age.  Judgment begins at HIS HOUSE.   This is such a revelation if you can receive it.  The traditions of the orthodox churches have nothing right and the doctrines they teach and we all first learn are truly another gospel and a different gospel.  If you know what bread and water represent in Scriptures then you will see the total apostasy in the professing orthodox churches of men.

Isa 3:1 For, behold, the Lord, the LORD of hosts, doth take away from Jerusalem and from Judah the stay and the staff, the whole stay of bread, and the whole stay of water (NO TRUE DOCTRINES, ALL LIES)

When we are yet carnal and looking at Scripture thru the veil of flesh, we will not see anything correctly even though we all will vehemently argue otherwise.  But a day will come when that veil is removed and then we will truly come to appreciate that the Scriptures don’t mean what they say, they mean what they mean, and that meaning must be given to us by faith.  Christ’s words are not to be taken literally, outwardly by the letter.  They are Spirit.

Joh 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.

Mat 13:11 He 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.

So the truth and the knowledge of the mysteries of the kingdom are given to very few as many are called but only a few are chosen of the Lord.  Eternal hell is a lie, one of just millions we all first learn in Babylon.  The fact is that “FIRE” is an attribute of God and HIS WORD, that has both positive and negative applications in Scripture.  The word of God is likened to a sword that has two edges and this refers to the positive and negative applications of all words of Scripture.

Heb 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged 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.

Fire is negative in that it brings destruction and destroys the old man and the carnal mind.  Fire is positive in that it purifies us and burns out all the sin and inequity from our hearts and minds.  But the natural man cannot receive the truth of God’s word, it is foolishness to him.

1Co 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

We are going to look at what “fire” represents in Scriptures and we will hopefully see a new truth that God is not this monster God that we say is a God of love yet who is going to burn billions of people forever without end in a place called eternal hell.  There are some wonderful articles that speak to the truth and expose the lie of eternal torment.  They can be found here:

SALVATION OF ALL

HELL IS NOT ENDLESS PUNISHMENT

I pray you are given eyes to see and ears to hear these truths and will come to believe the good news of the one true gospel.  Let’s begin with some Scriptures that tell us of the character of God.  He is a devouring fire.

Hebrews 12:29 For our God is a devouring fire

Deut 4:24  For the LORD your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God

This is far from the only characteristic of God.  Indeed they are many others and they include such other attributes as love, mercy, and long suffering to name a few.  So carnal men make the mistake of twisting Scriptures to their own destruction. It is the sum of God’s word that represents the truth.

Psa 119:160 The sum of Your word is truth

2Pe 1:20 knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation,

Yet carnal men have taken Scriptures by themselves, violating these two principles of God’s word and to the exclusion of other Scripture have invented their own doctrines.  Doctrines and spiritual truths we take to heart are what we eat spiritually speaking and when we do this in Babylon, we are making our own bread and have not the doctrines of Jesus Christ.

Isa 4:1 And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach.

With 2,000 years of Apostasy behind us, carnal man has truly maligned the nature and character of our great God.  Deceivers have only waxed worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.

2Ti 3:13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.

The doctrine of eternal torment and man’s free will to choose God are gigantic doctrines of devils which point away from the Cross and the Lord Jesus Christ.  Such doctrines do not conform one to true godliness but instead keep the beast that all men are safely enthroned in our hearts in the place of the real Jesus.  This is not somebody else or some man to come in the future, this is you and me and all men.

Ecc 3:18 I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts.

2Th 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

Rev 13:11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.

Fire is the instrument of Judgment

Fire, which stands for the WORD of GOD is what brings judgment upon us.   And hopefully we do know that Jesus Christ is this WORD and that He came to save the world and will do so in due time by the process of judgement.

Joh 12:47-48 And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.  He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day. 

This coming of Christ to us a second time is very bad news for the old man but for the new man that the Lord is bringing forth, it is very good news.  It is the love of God in action as He remakes us and chastens us with His grace.

Matthew 3:10-11Therefore every tree which does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.

Heb 9:28So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation. 

Every son God receives in this age is scourged with this fire.  This is the true baptism into Christ’s death and it comes from the Almighty as the destruction of our flesh and carnal mind.   This is completely opposite of what Babylon teaches us.  Here is what the word of God working in our lives works.

Heb 12:6For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. 

1Pe 4:12Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:

Act 14:22 Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.

The judgment of God is said to be sweeter than honey for the new man and it begins at the house of God.  It is a blessing for the fire of God to come upon us and burn out all that defiles.  Eternal torment is such a damnable heresy.

Psa 19:9-10 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

1Pe 4:17  For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God:

God’s love converts all His enemies, which is all that are carnal minded at enmity with God, into His friends.  The vehicle for this conversion and transformation is the righteous judgment of God.

Psa 66:3Say unto God, How terrible art thou in thy works! through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit themselves unto thee.

The day of the Lord is this day of judgment where in the fire of God will work its wonderful work in us and destroy the old man and bring forth the new man

Joe 2:1-3Blow 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 nigh 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 any more after it, even to the years of many generations. A fire devoureth before them; and behind them aflame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.

Fire is good to the new man and very bad for the old man and carnal mind.  These words of Christ speak of His wonderful works to the children of men.  This is how we are sanctified, it is thru the process of coming thru the fire.

Mat 7:19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 

Mat 13:40As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.

Even this verse from Matthew, always misquoted due to the carnal translation of “aionious” as everlasting; speaks of God’s chastening grace that will save all men in the end.  Being sent into the lake of fire is how all men except God’s very Elect will be saved in the 2nd resurrection.

Mat 25:41Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, (age abiding) prepared for the devil and his angels: Rev 19:20  And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

Do any research and you will see that brimstone is a purifying agent which is the very purpose of God’s fires.   I hope you are beginning to see that the fire of God is what brings judgment to us.  It is very good yet we will never be judged unless and until we can hear the words of the Lord in Spirit.  We must have ears to hear and we only get them in the last days of our carnal age when judgment comes upon us.

Joh 12:48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.

Fire is God’s instrument of salvation and that simply is HIS WORD, which must be heard with God given ears to hear to begin to work its purposes in our lives.  That purpose will be our sanctification.

1 COR 3:13-15  each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is.  14 If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. 15 If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.

Maybe now you can understand the Psalm 19 that spoke of God’s judgments as sweeter than honey and more desirable than gold.  God’s purposes with fire is always for good.  The belief of a fire that never goes out and burns without end is not in the Scriptures and is an invention of the carnal mind adopted from ancient pagan doctrines.  All men shall be saved, that is the promise of God and that salvation will come by the very same fire the blind multitudes of orthodox Christianity claim will burn people in hell forever and ever.

God Gets What He Wants

The will of God is always getting done in everyone’s life everyday all the time with no exceptions.  He is the LORD and called the Almighty and in Him, we live and have our very being.  

Act 17:28For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.

This is what God wants and He will get and His word, the fire will perform its work in the appointed times for each of us.

2Pe 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

God is longsuffering, He is patient, His mercy endures forever.  He is not waiting on any man to choose Him, God is working all things for the council of His will.

Eph 1:11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:

Pro 16:9 A man’s heart deviseth his way: but the LORD directeth his steps.

Isa 64:8 But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.

Joh 15:5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

Fire Cast Unto the Earth

Jesus Christ will ultimately be the Savior of the whole world but He is not now saving the entire world.  For now and in each generation since Christ, His Elect, the few chosen from the many called are who Christ is saving.  

Mat 22:14  For many are called, but few are chosen. 

The way we are saved is when we are judged as we saw earlier.  This comes when fire is cast onto the earth, which speaks to us, made from dust.  All of Scripture is a parable needs to be applied inwardly first and foremost.  In due time Christ will save all just as promised and as Paul states here:

1Co 15:22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. 

1Co 15:23But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming. 

 Jesus wanted to get on quickly with building HIS church by bringing judgment via this fire onto the very Elect.  This fire lights our earth on fire when we are given our ears to hear by the precious gift of faith. I have been lit on fire by the power of God.

Luke 12:49I have come to cast fire upon the earth; and how I wish it were already kindled!

Isa 26:9  ... for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness. 

The carnal mind does not understand that God made us all marred vessels of clay on purpose, only to remake us all in the appointed time of judgment for all.  God’s anger against our rebellion to His ways is all part of His plan to teach us thru His righteous judgments and by doing so we learn good and evil and become like gods.  His anger is used to bring about good which is our salvation!!!!  Oh praise God for those who see this now.  Isaiah the prophet spoke of this as well and this is one of my favorite Scriptures that I now finally truly understand and rejoice over

Isaiah 48:10  Behold, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction.

Being refined in a hot fiery furnace is not fun for the old man.  There is much suffering involved, which is the walk of God’s chosen Elect.  We must suffer as our Lord suffered and it is by this suffering we will learn obedience.

Php 1:29  For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake

So much for the false prosperity gospel.  God is not in the flesh blessing business, He is in the business of destroying flesh and blood and remaking us by the fire of His word.

Rev 21:5  And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. 

God’s fire is like a refiner’s fire.  Its whole purpose is not to punish people as the demonic doctrine of eternal hell puts forth.  No, God’s purposes are always for good, ALWAYS, and God’s fire is there to draw people to Him and to purify us into the divine nature that is God.  The Prophet Malachi spoke of Jesus coming and likened this to a refiner’s fire.

Malachi 3But who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner’s fire and like launderers’ soap. 3 He will sit as a refiner and a purifier of silver; He will purify the sons of Levi, And purge them as gold and silver, That they may offer to the Lord An offering in righteousness.

When God puts His spirit in us, He puts in the fire that will consume the adversaries of the Lord.  All the enemies of God and things in our land, which means in our hearts and our minds,  the things  that defile our temples of the Lord will be burnt up eventually thru this process.  This fire cannot be put out by man or his delusion of free will.  It will burn up the tares, which are the false doctrines we believed out of our land.  What God has started in us, He will finish the job. Jeremiah thought he could thwart the will of the Lord just like Jonah did and not speak this word.

Jer 20:9  Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay. 

But as Jeremiah and Jonah both learned, the zeal of the Lord is that word burning in us and it will consume us and purge the old man, that man of sin out of our heart.

Joh 2:17  And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up. 

I hope you have eyes to see clearly the purposes for all of God’s judgments.  They are used to purify His sons and daughters, not to torment them FOREVER.  His anger is but for a short time as the Psalm 30:5 tells us.  The character of God has been greatly stained by carnal man and this doctrine of eternal hell.  You will be ashamed you ever believed it when your eyes are opened to the truth. 

The Role of the Priests

Jesus is our HIGH PRIEST and sits in our heavens with the Father.  Priest make a propitiation for sins and Christ was such for not only the sins of His Elect but for the sins of the whole world.

1Jn 2:2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.

God’s chosen Elect are the kings and priests of the Lord and if we are found faithful will rule and reign with Him during the Millennium reign on earth.  In the interim we will overcome and gain dominion over sin.

Rev 1:6  And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever

Rev 5:10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the (our) earth.

The role of a priest in Scripture as the sum of thy word tells us is always to put fire on the altar of God.  Let’s look at God’s instructions to His priests.

Leviticus 1The sons of Aaron the priest shall put fire on the altar, and lay the wood in order on the fire. 8 Then the priests, Aaron’s sons, shall lay the parts, the head, and the fat in order on the wood that is on the fire upon the altar; 9 but he shall wash its entrails and its legs with water. And the priest shall burn all on the altar as a burnt sacrifice, an offering made by fire, a sweet aroma to the Lord.

The hearts of the people, ours included are the wood as we will see below.  This is nothing more than us becoming a living sacrifice and having the word of God, the fire, burn up our old man.  We die daily as we are crucified with Christ.  This is what the fire does it consumes the lusts of the world, lusts of the eyes and the pride of life in us.  The fire kills us and fulfills our needing to lose our life to gain it.

Mat 10:39He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.

God uses His few chosen ones, the very few among the many called, to be the very fire.  The Elect of God that have this fire burning in them are the BODY OF CHRIST.  They are the angels or messengers of God are cast fire down to the earth.  This is all symbolic language that speaks to us speaking His word, that is the fire.

Heb 1:7  And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire. 

Rev 8:5  And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake. 

God’s Elect are these angels and are these ministers.  We are the salt of the earth, and we rain fire down on this earth by preaching this gospel.  This applies first to our own earth, inwardly but also to the few sheep and lambs the Lord will send our way.  We feed them His word, which is a fire.

Jeremiah 5:14  Wherefore thus saith the Lord God of hosts, because ye speak this word, behold, I will make my words in thy mouth fire, and this people wood, and it shall devour them.

This is what will turn the hearts of the people back to God when they believe.  The priest of God will never stop speaking words of fire.

Leviticus 6:11-13 and the fire on the altar shall be kept burning on it; it shall not be put out. And the priest shall burn wood on it every morning, and lay the burnt offering in order on it; and he shall burn on it the fat of the peace offerings. 13 A fire shall always be burning on the altar; it shall never go out

This is the ETERNAL FIRE,  not some made up eternal torment.  We know a literal fire burns no more on an altar in physical Israel.  This is speaking of the WORD of God pricking the hearts of His people.  God has raised forth in each generation those He has chosen to as priests on His kingdom.  

Fires Consume The Fuel Given To Burn

This true gospel is a fire when we are given ears to hear it in truth and in spirit.  The hearts and mind of carnal man is the wood.  The words of Jesus are eternal life and when they go out they never return to Him void if and when they are heard with God given ears to hear.  These words of fire will accomplish all of His divine purposes in their appointed time. The carnal man has looked at the book of revelation thru fleshly eyes.  They will use this verse that follows to support a total unbiblical view of an eternal torment.  But they are yet carnal and know not the true heavenly things of God.  Only God can give eyes to see these things.

Revelation 14:9-11If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, 10 he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. 11 And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.”

This verse is speaking to the righteous judgments of God that are already being experiences in the hearts and minds of HIS Elect, upon where judgment must begin.   Those judgments, which are pure and which are likened to honey and even pure gold.  The torment is in the hearts of men who must die to themselves and their self will so God can give them the new heart and pour His love into them.  This is the suffering of the old man and the process of being crucified with Christ.  The time period is not forever and ever, it says the eons of the eons and it means an age lasting period of time God has ordained for each of us.  But eventually ALL THE WOOD will be burnt up.

Pro 26:20 Where no wood is, there the fire goeth out: so where there is no talebearer, the strife ceaseth.

Psa_106:18  And a fire was kindled in their company; the flame burned up the wicked. Job_31:12  For it is a fire that consumeth to destruction, and would root out all mine increase. 

Fires consumes and destroys the old man, the beast within, the carnal mindedness that represents all of us in the flesh.  When these enemies of God and the carnal mind is at enmity with God, is burned up, then salvation comes. We overcome sin in our lives, getting dominion over sin via the earnest deposit, the down payment we have been given with Christ working in us, the hope of glory.

1 COR 3:13-15 each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is.  14 If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. 15 If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.

The Lord will accomplish His purposes and will remake us all into new vessels. He does this with His word, the fire of God.

Lam_4:11  The LORD hath accomplished his fury; he hath poured out his fierce anger, and hath kindled a fire in Zion, and it hath devoured the foundations thereof.  Eze_22:31  Therefore have I poured out mine indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath: (THE OLD MAN IS DESTROYED PRAISE GOD)

These verses actually speak to the good news, the wonderful works of God to the children of men.  In the end God’s love wins out and all men will be saved.  It is by the crucifixion of Christ in us that we shall be saved in our appointed times.  We must follow the Lord and go thru the process of judgment and become a living sacrifice to be saved in this life and then we must endure to the end and be found faithful.  This fiery process is painful for the old man but it is by this fire that all the carnal thoughts and doctrines, THE WOOD, is burned up.  What will remain is the pure gold refined in God’s furnace.

 Eternal hellfire is a lie and another jesus.  Here is the truth about how long the judgment of God will last. The “eternal” fire that brought judgment to Sodom and Gomorrha are not burning today.  That wood was burned up long ago.  

Jud 1:7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. 

The church fell away from the truth before the Bible was even finished being written.  Doctrines such as eternal torment have simply been passed down for centuries leaving the carnal minded KJV translators no choice but to take words like Aion and Aionios and mistranslated them into eternal and everlasting.  Here is a short article that shows this egregious error that has helped keep the multitudes blinded to the true Jesus. AION AND AIONIOS MISTRANSLATED But far greater glory remains for those who come to know God in this age.  Such will not work via the strength of their flesh or the delusion of free will for their salvation.  We will strive to stay on the narrow path and work out our own salvation, knowing that it is God who is now doing the work in us.

Php 2:12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. 

Php 2:13  For it is God (not you, not your free will) which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. 

Those precious few given the gift of faith (God’s Elect) will be striving to be found worthy to win the prize, to receive the reward of being in the first resurrection.

Php 3:13  Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, 

Php 3:14  I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. 

So this I press onward for the mark and this HIGHER CALLING of God, that is given to just a few.  Many will see their works burned up and exposed for the false gospel and other jesus’s they followed.  But they all shall yet be saved in the very end.  All God’s promises will come to pass.

When something is consumed it disappears and ceases to exist.  Hallelujah, death shall be no more!!  The result of this is that all things will be restored to a pure, divine nature which defines the awesome God that I now serve.  I cannot wait.

1 COR 15:54-57Death is swallowed up in victory.” 55 “O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?” 56 The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. 57 But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Thank you Jesus for kindling your fire on this earth.  Thank you Lord.   I leave you with a Psalm excerpt that sums up the purposes of God’s fires.  This is the good news, the Lord destroying the old man to bring forth the new man.

Psalm 11:5-7 The Lord tests the righteous, but the wicked and the one who loves violence His soul hates.  6 Upon the wicked He will rain coals; Fire and brimstone and a burning wind  shall be the portion of their cup. 7 For the Lord is righteous, He loves righteousness; His countenance beholds the upright God loves righteousness.

God will turn His enemies into His friends.  He is going to make everything and everyone righteous in the end.  His power and His glory truly know no limits.  False teachers will continue to deny the power of God and speak evil of the truth I now share with you.  May those who have ears, hear this word. Sincere comments or questions can be sent to peter.wilson@cox.net.  I would be happy to assist you and be a helper in your joy of the Lord. Your brother in Christ,   Pete

Jer 23:29 Is not My word like a fire?” says the LORD, “And like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?

Destruction and Rebuilding of God’s Temple

March 12, 2014

cyrus

Joh 2:19  Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. 

I was reading Isaiah 45 today and saw God’s macro plan of salvation and how He brings it so clear and I wanted to share it.  Please bear with my introduction as I lay a foundation on which the truth is built.

1Co 3:16-17  Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are. 

The true things of the Lord are hidden from carnal eyes. HIS truths are total darkness to those outside the covenant of true faith, the kind that is given to man by the Lord. The Bible is so simple in all actuality and tells God’s plan with stunning clarity and is repeated over and over again from Genesis thru Revelation.  That plan in a nutshell is that we all come into this world sinful, marred vessels of clay in a body of sinful flesh.

Until the Lord begins His work in us by bringing judgment, we are naked, which means sinful and do not even know it.

Gen 2:25  And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed. 

We come in a marred vessel of clay with God knowing full well flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom.

Jer 18:4  And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it. 

We all will first live the lie thinking man was made perfect and believe the fall of man, yet the truth is flesh is sin.

Psa 51:5  Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me. 

Rom 8:3  For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh

Upward Calling of God

But a day has already been determined, if we are God’s Elect when the Potter will come to us and begin the process of remaking us into the lively stones that make up His spiritual house.  This house is the true Israel of God in this age and as the Elect the Scriptures are written for us and to us and refer to us by many different names.  The temple of Jesus Christ is HIS BODY, He is the head.  Christ is our husband but we are His wife and His mother, THE CHURCH, His angels, His messengers and in the ages to come we will also be His priest and kings and rule this world with Christ.  God’s Elect will build the church for Christ as His Body and will be the pillars and doors by which all men come to know the Lord.

1Co 6:2  Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters? 

Mat 19:28  And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. 

Oba 1:21  And saviours shall come up on mount Zion to judge the mount of Esau; and the kingdom shall be the LORD’S. 

Neh 9:27  Therefore thou deliveredst them into the hand of their enemies, who vexed them: and in the time of their trouble, when they cried unto thee, thou heardest them from heaven; and according to thy manifold mercies thou gavest them saviours, who saved them out of the hand of their enemies. 

Rev 20:4  And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 

Rev 3:12  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. 

The carnal mind can’t accept God’s plan and will make false accusations that we are exalting ourselves, but the fact is, any of God’s Elect will have every semblance of pride, exaltation and arrogance burned out of them by suffering thru many trials in this flesh.  God is in the business of making merciful judges for the ages to come.  Romans 11 is such a wonderful chapter when you have eyes to see the truth.  I see only because of the unbelief of those still in Babylon.

Rom 11:30  For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief: 

Rom 11:31  Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy. 

Rom 11:32  For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all. 

So this is very good news and the plan of God for all men in due time is to remake them into the image of Christ, but all happens in the appointed times.  We only need to trust God, believe on Christ and wait for Him to work His work.

Rev 21:5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. 

Exo 14:13 And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever.

Psa 25:3  Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed: let them be ashamed which transgress without cause. 

God’s plan is to remake us into His image and teach us righteousness by learning good and evil.  All of this happens in the times appointed by God and written in our books before the world was even formed.

Psa 139:16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.

The righteous judgment of God falling upon us  is the secret mysterious way by which Christ builds His church which is His temple and where He dwells today in His Elect.

1Pe 2:5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.

It is this process of Christ appearing in us that humbles us and transforms to be like God so we can enter into His kingdom.  We are humbled by coming to see how wretched we truly are.  In order for us to see ourselves as the chief of sinners, we must fall down seven times and be shown the total and complete inability we have to wrestle with our beast nature.  The man of sin that WE ARE must be revealed to us and that is how the process begins.

Rom 7:24O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?

1Ti 1:15This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.

2Th 2:3Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

The purpose of this is to burn out all self reliance we have, to crush the pride of life and to brings us to see our total need for a Savior.   This was God’s plan all along and the purpose of our lives in these clay vessels.

Gen 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 for ever: 

Heb 5:14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil. 

Ecc 1:13 CLVI applied my heart to inquiring and exploring by wisdom concerning all that is done under the heavens:it is an experience of evil Elohim has given to the sons of humanity to humble them by it.

Flesh and blood simply cannot inherit the kingdom of God and we must destroyed and remade for us to enter.  That is the entire purpose and plan of God and it will bring to Him all the glory when He has accomplished it.

1Co 15:50  Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. 

All knees and tongues will confess to the glory of God in the ages to come.

Php 2:9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 

Php 2:10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 

Php 2:11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. 

So while Babylon and those in prison to its doctrines believe in lies such as eternal torment, free will and the trinity,  those few the Lord has chosen will know of this simple plan of the Lord to remake ALL THINGS in the appointed times.

Luk 3:6And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.

Jer 45:5I will bring evil upon all flesh, saith the LORD: but thy life will I give unto thee for a prey in all places whither thou goest. 

God has already declared it and will bring it to pass.  We just need to wait on the Lord until the appointed times for each of us.

Gen 18:14Is any thing too hard for the LORD? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son (THE NEW MAN born of the Spirit)

1Co 15:22For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
1Co 15:23But every man in his own order: (i.e. the appointed time)  Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming.

… and that appointed time, will be the time of our judgment, that is when the new man is formed .  The wrath of God must be poured upon our old man and carnal mind

Rev 15:8And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.

1Pe 4:17  For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God

Exo 6:6Wherefore say unto the children of Israel, I am the LORD, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will rid you out of their bondage, and I will redeem you with a stretched out arm, and with great judgments:

and thus the Lord remakes all things, all men, and saves all in the times appointed.

Jer 18:4And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it.

Rom 9:21Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?

Isaiah 45 Reveals God’s Plan

This plan of the Lord is repeated throughout Scripture.  Yet we must have eyes to see it and ears to hear it. Isaiah 45 speaks of God’s total plan of bringing salvation to His Elect and we are now going to review this chapter and show the good news that it conveys to those that can hear.

The Lord will come again to the marred vessels of clay He purposefully created and will work a wonderful work of salvation in due time.  We are blessed beyond belief when the Lord comes to us to perform His work in us.  None of us chose to be subjected to vanity, it was all God’s idea.

Rom 8:20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,
Rom 8:21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
Rom 8:22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.

The marred vessels of clay, represent the sinful flesh that all men represent, the vessel of dishonor that the Lord must remake for us to enter the kingdom of God.  The words of Scripture are living words and speak of the revelation of Jesus Christ who is both the first and the last Adam. These verses speak to God’s Elect and ultimately all men.  We all are beasts and while in the flesh are given rule over all of the kingdoms within us.  That is what the type and shadow of King Cyrus represents.  The kings from the east will arise and come forth and conquer the land within.  Christ and the sun always arise from the east and the Spirit of God will stir us up to come out of Babylon when our appointed times arrive.   This speaks to the kingdoms within us.

Ezr 1:1 Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the LORD by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the LORD stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and put it also in writing, saying,
Ezr 1:2 Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia, The LORD God of heaven hath given me all the kingdoms of the earth; and he hath charged me to build him an house at Jerusalem, which is in Judah.
Ezr 1:3 Who is there among you of all his people? his God be with him, and let him go up to Jerusalem, which is in Judah, and build the house of the LORD God of Israel, (he is the God,) which is in Jerusalem.
Ezr 1:4 And whosoever remaineth in any place where he sojourneth, let the men of his place help him with silver, and with gold, and with goods, and with beasts, beside the freewill offering for the house of God that is in Jerusalem.
Ezr 1:5 Then rose up the chief of the fathers of Judah and Benjamin, and the priests, and the Levites, with all them whose spirit God had raised, to go up to build the house of the LORD which is in Jerusalem.

So the Lord stirs us up when He puts His spirit in us.  Then and only then will we arise and begin to come out of her and begin to build the true temple of the Lord within us made not with hands of flesh.

Isa 45:1 Thus saith the LORD to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the two leaved gates; and the gates shall not be shut

We shall live by every word, even these words from Isaiah. We are Cyrus, the king of Persia and the nations and kingdom within us. We are all the people in the Scriptures and will live those words in our appointed times. And we are guaranteed that The Lord will one day, the appointed day for us, will open the doors to the kingdom of God within us, in our hearts and minds. Our heavens will be opened and revelation, the revelation of Jesus Christ and His true doctrines will pour out and nobody shall shut what God has opened. Pray that this day will come now, hasten this coming of the Lord to your heavens.

Isa 45:2 I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron:

With the heavens open and Christ doing His work in us by bringing judgment against our old man and carnal mind, HE will go before us to make our crooked paths and correct the perverse doctrines we learned and believe in Babylon. No man can straighten what God has made crooked except the Lord.

Ecc 7:13 Consider the work of God: for who can make that straight, which he hath made crooked?

The tares within us are the false doctrines we have believed our whole life. These will be ripped out at this point which is the harvest of the Lord, the judgment that begins at His house.

1Pe 4:17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

This is when evil spirits will be cast out of us and the house filled with the Spirit of truth so seven wicked spirits worse than the first do not return as happened in our days striving for truth in Babylon. When Christ appears to us, the deaf and dumb spirits that kept us carnal, and preventing us from hearing the truth of the word and seeing behind the letter will be cast out by Jesus Christ. Thus begins the day of the Lord, the age long process by which we are saved and overcome all sin. The marred and prideful vessel of clay will be broken to shreds like a pot and we will be humbled in due time. The prisons that kept us in chains will be opened and we now will be free from our blindness and deafness.

Luk 4:17 And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written,
Luk 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,

And these truths will be total darkness to those in Babylon. The same cloud that is light is darkness to the Egyptians. To God light and dark are one and the same.

Psa 139:12 Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.

Isa 45:3 And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.
Isa 45:4 For Jacob my servant’s sake, and Israel mine elect, I have even called thee by thy name: I have surnamed thee, though thou hast not known me.

And with ears to hear and the doors opened to heaven, now the Lord God will pour out the knowledge of Him and His doctrines and we will be taught the mysteries of the kingdom of God by His Christ, the body of Christ. These treasures are the wisdom of God, the secrets, the mysteries of HIS WORD that are only given to those babes blessed to be given them before the foundations of the world.

Luk 10:23 And he turned him unto his disciples, and said privately, Blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see:
Luk 10:24 For I tell you, that many prophets and kings 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.

We will now know Jesus Christ and His body and have eternal life here and now. This is what eternal life really means. It is here now and has been for 2,000 years and the Elect have entered in ever since.

Joh 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

When we know Christ and HIs Father we will also know we are the true Israel, His Very Elect, the apple of His eye and over time will grow in our knowledge of Him. He has a great plan for us if we are found faithful and endure to the very end.

Isa 45:5 I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:

With eyes to see and ears to hear, we will look behind us and see where the Lord had worked all things in our lives to bring about His perfect will in our lives. When an angel of God speaks the truth to us we are taught of Christ. Those words and truths will bring judgment to our house and this is the mystery of how we will progress from babes to mature sons and be sanctified from all sin.

Rev 1:10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet

What this angel (Elect messenger of God) shows us is the revelation of Jesus Christ. And it is being in the midst of Christ and He in us that all of our former fleshly Babylonian doctrines will be burned up as wood, hay and stubble.

Isa 45:6 That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else.

As we mature in the faith, we grow in our understanding of God’s Sovereignty, We will know that thru Christ we move and have our very being and that the Lord working and causing all things means exactly that.

Act 17:28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.

Eph 1:11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:

Isa 45:7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.

With the mind of Christ growing in us, we will even understand and come to appreciate the evil God has worked in our lives and the lives of others. He is a good God but uses evil to bring about good and to know this in truth and in spirit brings a peace that transcends all understanding. Evil includes sins, which are certainly evil yet Babylon and the carnal mind will continue to deny the Lord with their flesh doctrines that are another jesus. Those outside the covenant of faith will see this as blasphemy but they just can’t see or understand the truth, it has not been given to them in this age.

Isa 63:17 O LORD, why hast thou (GOD) made us to err from thy ways (SIN)
Pro 16:4 The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.

The process of God remaking the marred vessel of clay into a new vessel by bringing judgment upon that vessel is a foreign concept but was always God’s plan to teach us good and evil so we could be like gods.

Gen 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 for ever:

Isa 45:8 Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the LORD have created it.

With Christ sitting in our heavens, pouring His rain, hail, thunderstorms, etc…. His true doctrines and His judgments upon “our earth”, the land within, then salvation comes. This is the the mystery of how Christ is formed in us. And as this verse says, the Lord created it… salvation is of the Lord. Those that give man any part in this have a false gospel and they are blind to the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven. It is a wonderful thing when Christ begins working in us and brings the rain of His doctrines to our land.

Deu 32:2 My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass:

Salvation is indeed a process that takes time, a little while considering this whole life in the flesh is called a vapor of time. But when you see the words WOE, what is being spoken about is God’s judgment. That judgment is actually the good news, it is the vehicle by which salvation comes. The old man and carnal mind must be destroyed for us to enter into the Kingdom of God. Here these words of the POTTER reworking the clay He made thru this process.

Isa 45:9 Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou? or thy work, He hath no hands?
Isa 45:10 Woe unto him that saith unto his father, What begettest thou? or to the woman, What hast thou brought forth?
Isa 45:11 Thus saith the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me.

Our bodies are the earth, made of dust from the ground. God created us from this dust and established the heavens within us. All of the nations and kingdoms within HE has commanded as indeed He is the Lord! When our earth and our heavens hear the word of the Lord, these things shortly come to pass.

Jer 22:29 O earth, earth, earth, hear the word of the LORD.
Isa 1:2 Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth: for the LORD hath spoken, I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me.

Isa 45:12 I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, even my hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded.

The Lord creates us all as the first Adam and then in the appointed time raises up the Lord from heaven, in us. In this life of the flesh, only the Elect will be rebirthed in down payment form. Christ will raise us up, HIS CHRIST, the body; to direct our steps and build His Church.

1Co 15:45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.
1Co 15:46 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.
1Co 15:47 The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.
1Co 15:48 As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.
1Co 15:49 And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.

It is not man building the church, but it is Christ building it thru His Body, the very Elect. We do this by doing what our Lord did which is preaching the good news and setting free the captives in Babylon, chosen to receive ears to hear. There will not be many sheep or lambs but everyone one will be found exactly as the Lord has ordained.

Mat 22:14For many are called, but few are chosen.

Isa 45:13 I have raised him up (Christ and His Christ – the very Elect) in righteousness, and I will direct all his ways: he shall build my city, and he shall let go my captives, not for price nor reward, saith the LORD of hosts.

So I hope this partial review of ISA 45 has blessed you. If you can begin to understand that these prophecies that speak of Christ are speaking of HIS BODY, the very Elect, you can begin to understand that all of Scripture are words that we as God’s Elect must live by.

1Jn 4:17Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.

Joh 20:21Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.

I hope the Lord will guide you into the knowledge that YOU are His temple and it is in us, His very Elect in which He dwells now.   We are the lively stones in which He lives and together comprise the spiritual house that is the church, His very Body.  Christ is both the first Adam, the marred vessel of clay and He is the second Adam, the Lord from heaven.  Like our Lord on our third day we too will be perfected and raised with Him in righteousness.  Let him who has ears hear the words of the Lord.

Joh 2:19  Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. 

Rev 22:13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. 

1Co 15:47 The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven. 

Wait on the Lord.  Believe.  He will do it and on our third day, we too will be perfected.  We will follow our Lord.

Luk 13:32  And he said unto them, Go ye, and tell that fox, Behold, I cast out devils, and I do cures to day and to morrow, and the third day I shall be perfected.

Salvation of ALL

March 3, 2014

The Salvation of All

by Mitch Kuhn

http://www.tryingthespirits.com

 Introduction

The vast majority of Christians today believe that God is going to burn many people in hell by torturing them for all eternity. It is actually considered a great heresy by many that God would have mercy upon all men and eventually bring all to salvation. I firmly believed this doctrine of eternal torment, and was very motivated to tell others what I thought was the good news of the gospel of God. The Gospel that some will be saved and some will burn forever in hell is not good news, but rather a twisted and heretical view of God’s glorious plan of salvation.

The truth is that from the very beginning, God planned to redeem every person he ever created in addition to the spirit realm: angels, demons, and even Satan himself. In this study I’m going to show you in great detail from the scriptures, how God has hidden this plan to restore all things behind the types, shadows, and symbols of the Old Testament.

Act 3:20 And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you:

Act 3:21 Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.

The law was given as a shadow of the good things to come, which are revealed through Christ and the Spirit of God in the New Testament.

Heb 10:1 For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect.

This great mystery has been hidden from ages and generations, but now is being manifest, as Paul explains in Colossians.

Col 1:26 Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:

Col 1:27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

Col 1:28 Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:

The truth of God restoring all things is hidden behind the dark sayings and parables of his Word, which without the Spirit is impossible to understand.

Psa 78:2 I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old:

2Pe 3:15-16  And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.

The scriptures are difficult to understand, because God has written them to conceal the truth, until the appointed time.

Pro 25:2 It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter.

God spoke to people through parables in the Old Testament to keep the mystery hidden, and then did the very same thing in the New Testament through Christ.

 Eze 20:49 Then said I, Ah Lord GOD! they say of me, Doth he not speak parables?

 Eze 24:3 And utter a parable unto the rebellious house, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Set on a pot, set it on, and also pour water into it:

Mat 13:10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?

Mat 13:11 He 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.

Isa 6:9 And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not.

Isa 6:10 Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed.

It is impossible through our own carnal reasoning and human understanding to see the mystery hidden behind the letters of the scripture. It is only through the Spirit of God dwelling in us that we are able to see the truth of his Word.

1Co 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

Joh 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

I hope and pray that God will give you his Spirit that you may understand the true Gospel, and comprehend the marvelous plan of God. Paul prayed the very same thing for the Ephesians to whom he preached the truth of God.

Eph 3:16-19 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,  May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God.

Isaiah tells us that none but God knows what he has prepared for those that wait on him.

Isa 64:4 For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him.

Yet Paul reveals that by God’s Spirit, the deep things are revealed unto us!

1Co 2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

1Co 2:10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. 

I hope and pray that the Lord will use this paper to confirm what he is showing you through his Spirit.

There are many difficult verses to understand, and many scriptures that seem to directly contradict one another in our carnal understanding. I ask that you first please read my study entitled “Hell is Not Endless Punishment”. I need you to clearly understand that eternal torment in hell is not spoken of in the Old Testament, and certainly not taught by Christ or any of the Apostles. This study addresses many verses that seem contradictory to the Salvation of all. With the foundations laid in that study, you will be better prepared to appreciate the magnificence and beauty of the true Gospel of God hidden in the Old Covenant, and masterfully revealed in the new.

Genesis

Very early in the Book of Genesis, God gives a prophecy of what will happen to the serpent, because he has tempted Eve to transgress the first law ever given.

Gen 3:14 And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:

Gen 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

The Hebrew word for “bruise” is shu ph H7779, and is the same word translated as “crush” in the following verse.

Job 9:17 NKJV For He crushes (H7779) me with a tempest, And multiplies my wounds without cause.

What happens if a snake bites your heel and you then crush his head? Your heel may be injured, but the snake will die. This is actually a prophecy of the salvation of Satan.

Heb 2:14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;

Here is an article about the salvation of Satan:

Will Satan and His Angels Be Saved?

It is quite interesting to notice that death and hell are cast into the lake of fire. The Greek for Hell here is “hades” which is equivalent to the Hebrew word “sheol” and means the grave or place of the dead.

Rev 20:14 And death and hell (hades) were cast into the lake of fire.

This is the second death.  There is no longer any need for a place of the dead if death has been destroyed.

1Co 15:26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.

We must remember that the scriptures are full of dark sayings and parables. In a parable there is a deeper meaning behind the words, so we must look beyond physical death and search the scriptures for the spiritual definition of death. We find it in Romans.

Rom 8:6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

So there will be no physical death anymore AND no one will have a carnal mind. The carnal mind is the opposite of the mind of Christ, and represents all that is evil rebellious in our mind. The lake of fire into which “death” and “the grave” are cast, is a purifying fire that burns up all that is carnal, or disobedient to God.

Rom 8:7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be 

1Co 3:15 If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.

Our works are burned, which means that we are taught through God’s judgment to forsake all wickedness and self-righteousness, yet we are saved. This is the means by which God accomplishes the salvation of all, through judgment. This is actually the last of the Milk Doctrines listed in Hebrews 6.

Here is a study on this topic: Milk Doctrine of Eternal Judgment

Christ tells Peter that the power of hell (hades) will not prevail against the Church.

Mat 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell (Hades) shall not prevail against it.

This relates to Hebrews 2:14, which explains that the devil, who has the power of death, is destroyed.

Heb 2:14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;

Continuing on in Genesis, we find that there is a tree of life symbolizing salvation through Christ, but it is guarded by Cherubims with flaming swords.

Gen 3:24 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.

Joh 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Keep in mind that the mystery is hidden behind these symbols of the Old Testament. What does a sword symbolize? Let’s look to the New Testament to understand the mystery.

Eph 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

Heb 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged 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.

The Word of God is used to divide soul and Spirit. The word for soul is “psuche” G5590. This is the same word translated as ‘life’ in the following verse.

Mat 10:39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.

In this case “life” represents our old sinful ways that we must lose in order to inherit true life.

Joh 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

So the Word of God is actually used to divide our old sinful ways from the truth taught by the Spirit of God that is sent to dwell within us. The sword that is guarding the tree of life is on fire, because the Word also purifies us.

Mal 3:2 But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner’s fire, and like fullers’ soap:

Mal 3:3 And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness.

If we are going to come to know Jesus and eat of the tree of life, we have to pass through the flaming sword.

So who is it that is given to eat of the tree of life? Rev 2:7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

Overcoming is about overcoming the wicked one.

1Jn 2:14 I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one.

If the wicked one, Satan, is destroyed then everyone is going to overcome him and eat of the tree of life.

Heb 2:14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;

Later in Genesis, Abraham is told that all the nations of the earth will be blessed through him.

Gen 22:18 And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.

Gen 26:4 And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed;

This too is a prophecy that all men shall be saved. Paul explains in Galatians 3, that God will justify the heathen (Gentiles) by faith.

Gal 3:8 And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed.

Israel has been mostly blinded from the truth until the fullness of the Gentiles have come in, but then all of Israel will be saved.

Rom 11:25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.

Rom 11:26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:

Paul goes on to explain how God uses the unbelief of some to give mercy to others. The end result is that he has mercy upon all.

Rom 11:30 For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief:

Rom 11:31 Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy.

Rom 11:32 For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all.

The story of Joseph and his brothers is a powerful example of the mercy that God will have towards us, despite the fact that we have persecuted and spiritually killed his son Jesus and his people that preach the truth to us. Joseph had a dream that was true, yet he was hated for it.

Gen 37:5 And Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it his brethren: and they hated him yet the more.

He prophesied that his brothers, his mother, and father would bow down to him one day. When the opportunity presented itself, Joseph’s brothers cast him into a pit and then sold him into slavery.

Gen 37:23 And it came to pass, when Joseph was come unto his brethren, that they stript Joseph out of his coat, his coat of many colours that was on him;

Gen 37:24 And they took him, and cast him into a pit: and the pit was empty, there was no water in it.

Gen 37:28 Then there passed by Midianites merchantmen; and they drew and lifted up Joseph out of the pit, and sold Joseph to the Ishmeelites for twenty pieces of silver: and they brought Joseph into Egypt.

After many great trials and much suffering Joseph is made the ruler over all of Egypt and stores up grain to save many from the seven year famine. When his brothers come to buy grain for the family Joseph torments them and then has great mercy upon them.

Gen 50:19 And Joseph said unto them, Fear not: for am I in the place of God?

Gen 50:20 But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.

Gen 50:21 Now therefore fear ye not: I will nourish you, and your little ones. And he comforted them, and spake kindly unto them.

This story of God sending Joseph to make a way to save his family and many others is a shadow of the true salvation to come through Christ. While Joseph’s brothers were hateful towards him and attempting to kill him, God was actually working their salvation. This is exactly what God has done through Christ for us.

Rom 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

1Jn 4:9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

1Jn 4:10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

This salvation is brought to us through Christ and His body, which is made up of those in whom Christ brings the Spirit of God to dwell.

Col 1:24 Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body’s sake, which is the church:

Col 1:25 Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word of God;

Col 1:26 Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:

Col 1:27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

Col 1:28 Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:

Col 1:29 Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily.

This great mystery is explained in the following study: The Mystery of the Kingdom of God

Exodus

The book of Exodus is about Israel being set free from their bondage and slavery in Egypt. They cried unto the Lord in their distress and he saved them.

Exo 1:14 And they made their lives bitter with hard bondage, in morter, and in brick, and in all manner of service in the field: all their service, wherein they made them serve, was with rigour.

Exo 2:23 And it came to pass in process of time, that the king of Egypt died: and the children of Israel sighed by reason of the bondage, and they cried, and their cry came up unto God by reason of the bondage.

Exo 2:24 And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob.

Exo 2:25 And God looked upon the children of Israel, and God had respect unto them.

Exo 6:6 Wherefore say unto the children of Israel, I am the LORD, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will rid you out of their bondage, and I will redeem you with a stretched out arm, and with great judgments:

Notice that God says he will deliver Israel “with great judgments”. God delivers us from our bondage to sin by judging us and chastening us to forsake ungodliness and obey his commands.

Tit 2:11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,

Tit 2:12 Teaching (chastening) us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;

Heb 12:6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.

In Exodus 6 Israel is delivered from bondage in Egypt, which is a shadow and type of the true deliverance from bondage to our own sin revealed in the New Testament.

Rom 8:15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

Rom 8:16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

Rom 8:20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,

Rom 8:21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

Rom 6:17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.

Rom 6:18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.

Rom 6:22 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.

Rom 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal (aionios) life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

This study will explain aionios life: What is Aionios Life

And also in Galatians:

Gal 4:3 Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world:

Gal 4:4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,

Gal 4:5 To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.

Gal 4:6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.

God sent ten plagues upon Egypt to deliver Israel from bondage, the final one involved the death of all the first born, and the blood of a lamb being put on the doorposts so the death angel will pass over.

Exo 12:3 Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house:

Exo 12:4 And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbour next unto his house take it according to the number of the souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb.

Exo 12:5 Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats:

Exo 12:6 And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening.

Exo 12:7 And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it.

Exo 12:12 For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the LORD.

Exo 12:13 And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.

Exo 12:14 And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to the LORD throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever.

What does this lamb in Exodus symbolize? We are told in the book of John.

Joh 1:29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.

In Exodus, only Israel was saved by the blood of the lamb, but in John it is 13 revealed that Jesus takes away the sins OF THE WHOLE WORLD. God planned from the very foundation of the world, to provide Christ as a sacrifice to redeem all of his creation.

Rev 13:8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

The first born of all in Egypt being slain is a shadow of our old man being crucified with Christ. The old man represents our sinful ways and carnal mind before we are born again in Christ and given new ways and the mind of Christ.

Rom 6:6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. We must lose our life and be born again to be delivered from the bondage of sin.

Mat 10:39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.

Joh 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

In the book of Exodus, God gives Moses instructions about building the Ark of the Covenant. Part of these instructions involved a “mercy seat”

Exo 25:17 And thou shalt make a mercy seat of pure gold: two cubits and a half shall be the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth thereof.

Exo 25:21 And thou shalt put the mercy seat above upon the ark; and in the ark thou shalt put the testimony that I shall give thee.

Exo 25:22 And there I will meet with thee, and I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubims which are upon the ark of the testimony, of all things which I will give thee in commandment unto the children of Israel.

God says that he will meet and commune with Israel from above the mercy seat. This is a powerful shadow of the mercy that God will show towards all men. God does show great mercy, but he also requires that we reap the fruits of what we have done. When we transgress his laws we must be chastened from our iniquity. Mercy does not mean that all consequences are negated, but rather that in the end we will all be saved.

Num 14:18 The LORD is longsuffering, and of great mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression, and by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation.

Num 14:19 Pardon, I beseech thee, the iniquity of this people according unto the greatness of thy mercy, and as thou hast forgiven this people, from Egypt even until now.

Gal 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

Gal 6:8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

To continue on the theme of mercy, God shows mercy to those that keep his commandments.

Deu_5:10 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments.

Deu 7:12 Wherefore it shall come to pass, if ye hearken to these judgments, and keep, and do them, that the LORD thy God shall keep unto thee the covenant and the mercy which he sware unto thy fathers:

Yet Israel constantly breaks his commands, as we all do, so how will any mercy be shown? The answer lies in the promise of a New Covenant.

Jer 31:31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:

Jer 31:32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD:

Jer 31:33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

Jer 31:34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.

Eze 36:25 Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.

Eze 36:26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.

Eze 36:27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.

God is going to cause all of his creation to keep his commands, therefore he can have mercy upon all and forgive their transgressions. Here is the fulfillment of these promises in the New Testament.

1Jn 4:13 Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.

Php 2:13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

Rom 11:32 For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all.

Salvation of All Hidden in the Law

In God’s plan of salvation there is an order in which all are saved. There are three steps to this process that are foreshadowed in the feasts that Israel was to keep each year.

Exo 23:14 Three times thou shalt keep a feast unto me in the year. Exo 23:15 Thou shalt keep (1) the spring harvest the feast of unleavened bread: (thou shalt eat unleavened bread seven days, as I commanded thee, in the time appointed of the month Abib; for in it thou camest out from Egypt: and none shall appear before me empty. Exo 23:16 (2) The summer harvest at pentecost And the feast of harvest, the firstfruits of thy labours, which thou hast sown in the field: and (3) The fall harvest at the feast of tabernacles the feast of ingathering, which is in the end of the year, when thou hast gathered in thy labours out of the field. Exo 23:17 Three times in the year all thy males shall appear before the Lord GOD.

Through these three harvests, the whole of the yearly harvest is brought in. The analogy of sowing and reaping is prevalent throughout the New Testament.

1Co 3:6 I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase.

1Co 3:7 So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase.

Luk 6:44 For every tree is known by its own fruit. For men do not gather figs from thorns, nor do they gather grapes from a bramble bush.

Luk 10:1 After these things the Lord appointed seventy others also, and sent them two by two before His face into every city and place where He Himself was about to go.

Luk 10:2 Then He said to them, “The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.

Paul refers to these feasts in Exodus as he explains the order in which all will be saved.

1Co 15:22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive (G2227).

1Co 15:23 But each one in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, afterward those who are Christ’s at His coming.

1Co 15:24 Then comes the end, when He delivers the kingdom to God the Father, when He puts an end to all rule and all authority and power.

Some will say that “to be made alive” is to be resurrected, but then sent to heaven or hell. Here are a few uses of the same Greek word (G2227), that shows how “made alive” means to be saved.

1Pe 3:18 NKJV For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive (G2227) by the Spirit,

2Co 3:6 who also made us sufficient as ministers of the new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life (G2227)

Joh 6:63 It is the Spirit who gives life (G2227); the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.

Let’s now examine the order of salvation.

1Co 15:23 But each one in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, afterward those who are Christ’s at His coming.

Jesus Christ is the firstfruits of the harvest of all. Firstfruits simply means the first of the harvest.

1Co 15:20 NKJV But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.

Jas 1:17 NKJV Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.

Jas 1:18 Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures.

Rom 11:13 For I speak to you Gentiles; inasmuch as I am an apostle to the Gentiles, I magnify my ministry,

Rom 11:14 if by any means I may provoke to jealousy those who are my flesh and save some of them.

Rom 11:15 For if their being cast away is the reconciling of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead?

Rom 11:16 For if the firstfruit is holy, the lump is also holy; and if the root is holy, so are the branches. 

Christ speaks of death as sleep.

Joh 11:11 These things He said, and after that He said to them, “Our friend Lazarus sleeps, but I go that I may wake him up.”

Joh 11:12 Then His disciples said, “Lord, if he sleeps he will get well.”

Joh 11:13 However, Jesus spoke of his death, but they thought that He was speaking about taking rest in sleep.

Joh 11:14 Then Jesus said to them plainly, “Lazarus is dead.

Just as Christ has been raised from the dead, so will we all be raised from the dead. Since the firstfruit is holy, so will at their appointed time be made holy.

1Co 15:23 But each one in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, afterward those who are Christ’s at His coming.

The KJV translation hides the meaning of who is saved during this second step. There is the article “the” before “Christ” as these translations demonstrate.

1Co 15:23 (ABP+) But each in his own order; the first-fruit is Christ, thereupon the onesG3588 of theG3588 ChristG5547 at his arrival.

1Co 15:23 (REV) But, each, in his own rank:—A firstfruit Christ, after that, they who are the Christ’s, in his presence,

1Co 15:23 and each in his proper order, a first-fruit Christ, afterwards those who are the Christ’s, in his presence,

Christ actually has a Christ, which is also called the Body of Christ. When you read the phrase “the Christ” or “His Christ”, it’s just another way of saying the Body of Christ.

Act 4:26 The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord, and against his Christ.

 Rev 11:15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

Rev 12:10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

God has chosen some to be the firstborn of all those that will come after Christ himself in order of salvation.

Rom 8:29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

These are called God’s ‘chosen’ or ‘elect’.

Mat 20:16 So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.

Col 3:12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;

Tit 1:1 Paul, a servant of God, and an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the faith of God’s elect, and the acknowledging of the truth which is after godliness;

1Pe 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

Christ chose the 12 apostles to take his message of salvation to the world, and in the very same way there are those chosen in every generation to preach the truth of God’s word. Paul tells the Corinthians that the saints will judge the world and angels. The word for saints means “holy ones”, and refers to God’s elect whom he makes holy first.

1Co 6:2 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?

1Co 6:3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?

Paul explains that he is one of these ministers of God’s work, and has been given the job of fulfilling what Christ started.

Col 1:24 Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body’s sake, which is the church:

Col 1:25 Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word  of God;

Col 1:26 Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:

Col 1:27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

Col 1:28 Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:

Col 1:29 Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily.

All of God’s chosen, the elect, are used by God to reconcile all others to God. In this way the elect of God are also saviors.

2Co 5:18 Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation,

2Co 5:19 that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.

2Co 5:20 Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.

The word of God, symbolized by fire, is given to God’s ministers in order to save others.

Jer 5:14 Wherefore thus saith the LORD God of hosts, Because ye speak this word, behold, I will make my words in thy mouth fire, and this people wood, and it shall devour them.

Remember that we are saved by fire.

1Co 3:15 NKJV If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.

Heb 1:7 And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.

There are two resurrections. The first resurrection is of God’s elect, who are faithful to the end in their physical life.

Rev 17:14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

God’s faithful elect are given judgment and will rule and reign with Christ during the millennium, and then are used to save all those in the second resurrection through the lake of fire.

Rev 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

Rev 20:5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.

Rev 20:6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

God’s elect are used to administer his fire, which is used to purify and to save. The lake of fire is described in the book of Revelation, which purifies those that are cast into this fire.

Rev 20:10 The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever (ages of the ages).

Rev 20:11 Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them.

Rev 20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books.

Rev 20:13 The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works.

Rev 20:14 Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

Rev 20:15 And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.

For a more thorough study on Revelation 20 and the millennium, please see the following studies. Revelation Chapter 20 Studies

Purpose of the Millennium

After we have been purified by fire we will be able to dwell with God.

Heb 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire.

Psa 5:4 For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee.

Isa 59:1 Behold, the LORD’S hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:

Isa 59:2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.

Isa 33:14 The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?

Isa 33:15 He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil

1Pe 4:12 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:

1Pe 4:13 But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.

It is also very revealing to see the mercy that God provides to his people through the year of jubilee.

Lev 25:10 And you shall consecrate the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a Jubilee for you; and each of you shall return to his possession, and each of you shall return to his family.

Lev 25:11 That fiftieth year shall be a Jubilee to you; in it you shall neither sow nor reap what grows of its own accord, nor gather the grapes of your untended vine.

Lev 25:12 For it is the Jubilee; it shall be holy to you; you shall eat its produce from the field.

Lev 25:13 In this Year of Jubilee, each of you shall return to his possession.

The scriptures are full of great mysteries that are hidden behind the letters. Ask God for understanding and study diligently to see the truths that I have explained from the Word of God.

Psalms and the Prophets

With this new understanding that God is going to save all, let’s read through a number of verses from the Psalms and prophets and see them foreshadow the wonderful plan of God.

Psa 22:27 All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.

Psa 22:28 For the kingdom is the LORD’S: and he is the governor among the nations.

Psa 22:29 All they that be fat upon earth shall eat and worship: all they that go down to the dust shall bow before him: and none can keep alive his own soul.

ALL shall turn unto the Lord, and ALL nations shall worship the Lord, even those that die and go down to the dust.

Gen 3:19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

The wrath of God is upon all disobedience for a season, and then joy comes and life is given.

Psa 30:5 For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

This study explains how the wrath of God saves us. Treasuring Up the Wrath of God

Psa 67:1 To the chief Musician on Neginoth, A Psalm or Song. God be merciful unto us, and bless us; and cause his face to shine upon us; Selah.

Psa 67:2 That thy way may be known upon earth, thy saving health among all nations.

Psa 67:3 Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.

Psa 67:4 O let the nations be glad and sing for joy: for thou shalt judge the people righteously, and govern the nations upon earth. Selah.

Psa 67:5 Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.

Psa 67:6 Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us.

Psa 67:7 God shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth shall fear him.

God’s righteous judgment will result in praise, because it causes us to be obedient and love his ways. This study will explain more:

The Milk Doctrine of Eternal Judgment

Psa 68:18 Thou hast ascended on high, thou hast led captivity captive: Thou hast received gifts for men; yea, for the rebellious also, that the LORD God might dwell among them.

The Lord will lead us out of captivity and dwell with those that have been rebellious.

Psa 86:9 All nations whom thou hast made shall come and worship before thee, O Lord; and shall glorify thy name.

Psa 98:2 The LORD hath made known his salvation: his righteousness hath he openly shewed in the sight of the heathen.

Psa 98:3 He hath remembered his mercy and his truth toward the house of Israel: all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.

This is a prophesy of the salvation that is to be revealed in the New Covenant. God often speaks through his prophets like David and speaks as if something has been done, when it is not yet manifest.

Rom 4:17 (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.

Psa 145:9 The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.

God will show mercy to ALL.

Isa 25:6 And in this mountain shall the LORD of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined.

Isa 25:7 And he will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all people, and the vail that is spread over all nations.

Isa 25:8 He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken it.

Isa 25:9 And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.

This salvation that David speaks of is for ALL people, which will swallow up death in victory for ALL, and wipe away ALL tears.

Isa 45:22 Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.

Isa 45:23 I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.

Salvation is of God, and when He makes the truth known all will bow to him and be saved.

Isa 53:5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

Isa 53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. The prophecy of the sacrifice of Christ is for the iniquity of ALL.

Isa 66:23 And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD.

How do people in hell who are separated from God’s goodness worship him? These next two verses make it quite clear that God does not cast anyone off forever or remain angry forever, rather his mercy triumphs and delivers us all from our sin.

Lam 3:31 For the Lord will not cast off for ever:

Lam 3:32 But though he cause grief, yet will he have compassion according to the multitude of his mercies.

Mic 7:18 Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy.

Mic 7:19 He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.

This verse in Zephaniah shows how the Lord brings obedience through his wrath.

Zep 3:8 Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.

Zep 3:9 For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that theymay all call upon the name of the LORD, to serve him with one consent (accord).

Zep 3:17 The LORD your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.”

I hope you can now see the wonderful plan of salvation foreshadowed in the Old Testament.

 Salvation of All in the New Testament

I have already dealt with most of the problematic passages in my other study, Hell is Not Endless Punishment, so I’m just going to focus on the verses that proclaim the true Gospel, the salvation of all.

The Gospels

Mat 18:11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.

Mat 18:12 How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray?

Mat 18:13 And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray.

Mat 18:14 Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.

Through this parable the heart of our heavenly Father is clearly revealed…he cares about every one of his sheep and will not let any perish. In Matthew, Christ instructs Peter to endlessly forgive his brother who sins against him. If this is Christ’s doctrine, then He must forgive us for our transgressions against him and his Father as well.

Mat 18:21 Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?

Mat 18:22 Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, until seventy times seven.

In Luke, the good news of the gospel is for ALL PEOPLE.

Luk 2:10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

As Christ was hanging on the cross, he asks his father to forgive those who were crucifying him. If they are forgiven for crucifying the son of God, who cannot be forgiven?

Luk 23:34 Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.

This next verse is self explanatory.

Joh 1:29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.

Why was Christ sent into the world?

Joh 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Many people read the word “might” and conclude that it is only a possibility that Christ could save the world, when in reality it is a declaration of Christ’s mission that he WILL save the whole world. Young’s literal translation is a bit more clear.

Joh 3:17 YLT For God did not send His Son to the world that he may judge the world, but that the world may be saved through him;

Christ will accomplish the will of the Father. But what is the will of the Father?

1Ti 2:3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;

1Ti 2:4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

Joh 6:37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.

Joh 6:38 For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.

Joh 6:39 And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.

Who will Christ draw unto himself?

Joh 12:31 Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.

Joh 12:32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.

Acts

Here in Acts, Peter explains God’s plan to save all, as witnessed by the prophets long ago.

Act 3:19 ESV Repent therefore, and turn again, that your sins may be blotted out,

Act 3:20 that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and that he may send the Christ appointed for you, Jesus,

Act 3:21 whom heaven must receive until the time for restoring all the things about which God spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets long ago.

Act 3:22 Moses said, ‘The Lord God will raise up for you a prophet like me from your brothers. You shall listen to him in whatever he tells you.

Act 3:23 And it shall be that every soul who does not listen to that prophet shall be destroyed from the people.’

Act 3:24 And all the prophets who have spoken, from Samuel and those who came after him, also proclaimed these days.

Act 3:25 You are the sons of the prophets and of the covenant that God made with your fathers, saying to Abraham, ‘And in your offspring shall all the families of the earth be blessed.’

Paul’s Writings

I’m going to quote a number of passages from the book of Romans to show how Paul taught the salvation of all.

Rom 5:6 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.

Rom 5:7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.

Rom 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

Rom 5:17 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.)

Rom 5:18 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.

Rom 5:19 For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.

Rom 5:20 Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:

Rom 5:21 That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.

Paul draws the comparison between Adam bringing death to all, so Christ brings righteousness to all. If all have sinned, then all shall be saved! To further emphasize the point, it is shown that grace abounds more than sin. These verses in Romans 8 clearly reveal that God is the one who subjected the creation to vanity, and will then deliver us from bondage.

Rom 8:19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.

Rom 8:20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,

Rom 8:21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

In Romans 11, Paul explains the mystery of how the temporary blindness of Israel is actually used to save the Gentiles, and then BOTH will be saved.

Rom 11:25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.

Rom 11:26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:

Rom 11:27 For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.

Rom 11:28 As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers’ sakes.

Rom 11:29 For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.

Rom 11:30 For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief:

Rom 11:31 Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy.

Rom 11:32 For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all.

We’ll end our quotes from Romans with this statement.

Rom 14:11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.

We have already gone over some of these verses in 1 Corinthians, but they are certainly worth reading again.

1Co 15:22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

1Co 15:23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming.

1Co 15:26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.

1Co 15:28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.

1Co 15:51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,

1Co 15:54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

1Co 15:55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

1Co 15:56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.

1Co 15:57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Paul says in 2 Corinthians that God is reconciling THE WORLD unto himself through Christ, and does not impute their trespasses to them.

2Co 5:18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by 

2Co 5:19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

The book of Ephesians says that God is going to gather together into one, all things in Christ.

Eph 1:7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;

Eph 1:8 Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence;

Eph 1:9 Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:

Eph 1:10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:

The fullness of God’s Spirit is going to be in every one of his children. This is a second witness to what Paul says in 1 Cor. 15, that God will be all in all.

Eph 1:20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,

Eph 1:21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:

Eph 1:22 And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,

Eph 1:23 Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.

Eph 4:10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)

Here is God’s end goal, to have everyone bow to Jesus.

Php 2:9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:

Php 2:10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;

Php 2:11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

This does not mean that they should bow, as if it is a suggestion or command that is not followed, but rather a statement of what will happen.

Rom 14:11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.

Rom 14:12 So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.

ALL things are subdued unto Christ. All shall be made like him.

Php 3:20 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:

Php 3:21 Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.

Christ will reconcile ALL THINGS unto himself, including his enemies. We are commanded to love our enemies, so why would God do any less than he commands us to do.

Col 1:19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;

Col 1:20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.

Col 1:21 And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled

Col 1:22 In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:

Mat 5:43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.

Mat 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

Mat 5:45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

Mat 5:46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?

Mat 5:47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?

Mat 5:48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

Is God a hypocrite or will he treat his enemies with love and forgive his own rebellious children?

Why did Jesus come into the world?

1Ti 1:15 This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.

Who does God desire to be saved?

1Ti 2:3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;

1Ti 2:4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

1Ti 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

1Ti 2:6 Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.

Who did Christ come to save?

1Ti 4:9 This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation.

1Ti 4:10 For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.

1Ti 4:11 These things command and teach.

Can God do what he desires to do, or is he limited in some way?

Isa 46:10 Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:

To who has God’s grace appeared?

Tit 2:11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,

Other New Testament Writings

For whom did Christ taste death?
