Judging Righteous Judgment May 26 2016

By Pete Wilson

Making judgments is essential for the people of God.  The Scriptures command us to be vigilant and diligent to guard our way.  That means making judgments constantly as we must strive to stay on the narrow way and separate from the world and all things unclean.

Pro 4:23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.

1Pe 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

The Elect of God otherwise known as the Body of Christ will in fact be the judges of all mankind and will usher in salvation to all men in the appointed times.

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?

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.

Lest we forget, judgment is the process by which all men are saved.  There is no other way.

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:

The promise given to Abraham, a type of God’s Elect, is that we and our households would do justice and judgment.

Gen 18:18 Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him?

Gen 18:19 For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him. (i.e. Salvation)

So knowing these truths combined with a God-given zeal for the House of the Lord, we should run towards these judgments knowing they hasten the formation of Christ in us.  The day of the Lord for each of us is a wonderful day for the new man but a terrible day for the old man.  Such is the conundrum that the carnal world and orthodox Christianity cannot see.

2Pe 3:12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

It is those of us who follow the Lord in the “regeneration”, the process of being born again by the Spirit of God, and washed in the water of the Word; that will sit on the throne of His glory judging Israel.

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.

This statement of the Lord, of course, applies both inwardly and outwardly in an “is, was and will be” manner.  Inwardly the Christ in us replaces the beast sitting on the Lord’s throne and brings salvation to the nations within us.

Psa 47:8 God reigneth over the heathen: God sitteth upon the throne of his holiness.

Judging Israel applies to those in the Body right now who are sitting in down payment form judging the twelve tribes of Israel right now.  We are the lake of fire to one another and it is by abiding with and in Christ, in the Word, that we are judged now.

1Co 11:31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.

1Co 11:32 But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.

The Elect of God are in training for their future roles to be the saviors of all men which will be preceded by their reigning with Christ during the Millennium.  Those given this role will have lost their carnal mindedness (been beheaded) now in this life in the clay.

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.

The only way we learn to do anything including becoming the judges of the world is by experience.  This is why we are given these trials and caused to fall down so we can learn true righteousness through this judgment process.

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?

Isa 26:8  Yea, in the way of thy judgments, O LORD, have we waited for thee; the desire of our soul is to thy name, and to the remembrance of thee.

Isa 26:9  With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early: for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.

We best be becoming of full age now, getting lots of experience judging and being judged as that is how we become the mature man (Heb 5:14) learning how to discern good and evil (Gen 3:22).

This is the upward call of God also called the prize by Paul (Php 3:14) that hopefully we have been given the zeal to run and finish the race so we may attain to 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.

Babylonian Ditches on Both Sides

There are Babylonian ditches on both sides of the narrow way.  Most of us have been in both places and either not judging or making judgments after the flesh.  The sleazy grace mentality that says the Lord did it all for us on the cross and all we need to do is say a ten second sinners prayer for salvation encourages lasciviousness and causes us to wrest away the judgment of God and stay worldly.

Exo 23:2 Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment:

Generalizing Babylonian lies, there is another ditch on the other side of the way.  This ditch is one I would define as legalistic, condemning, blaming others with a mindset that always denies the Lord and makes man responsible for his own salvation and accountable for his own behavior.  Of course, that is a lie as the Lord truly is the Potter and we merely are the clay and everything we do is His work in us (Isa 64:8).

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.

The insidiousness of all these false doctrines and both generalized ditches is that there is always some truth connected.  Yet the leaven or lies renders the doctrines spiritual poison and points to another “jesus”.  It is indeed a very narrow road with error and ditches on both sides of the road.  The people of God do not walk after the flesh but after the Spirit.  And if we do so, we are commanded to be judging ALL THINGS.

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

Yet the people of the Lord who are to judge all things, judge them spiritually.  That is what righteous judgment is all about.  It is based on the WORD and not the ways of this world.

Joh 7:24 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.

 Lev 19:15 Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment: thou shalt not respect the person of the poor, nor honour the person of the mighty: but in righteousness shalt thou judge thy neighbour.

We judge all things but not according to the flesh and the ways of the world.  When we are carnal we will judge after the flesh.

Joh 8:15 Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.

Joh 8:16 And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me.

This parable of Christ says He judges no one but then tells us how He judges.  This tells those with ears to hear that Christ, us, His Body, are to only judge according to the Scriptures.  We are not judged of any man because it is the WORD, the plumb line that is the measuring stick of judgment.  This is “the way” by which Christ in us arises.

Amo 7:5 Then said I, O Lord GOD, cease, I beseech thee: by whom shall Jacob arise? for he is small.

Amo 7:6 The LORD repented for this: This also shall not be, saith the Lord GOD.

Amo 7:7 Thus he shewed me: and, behold, the Lord stood upon a wall made by a plumbline, with a plumbline in his hand.

Amo 7:8 And the LORD said unto me, Amos, what seest thou? And I said, A plumbline. Then said the Lord, Behold, I will set a plumbline in the midst of my people Israel: I will not again pass by them any more:

Amo 7:9 And the high places of Isaac shall be desolate, and the sanctuaries of Israel shall be laid waste; and I will rise against the house of Jeroboam with the sword.

Rev 11:1 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.

How we judge that determines whether or not we are on the narrow way.  Our judgments must be according to the WORD.

1Co 4:6 And these things, brethren, I have in a figure transferred to myself and to Apollos for your sakes; that ye might learn in us not to think of men above that which is written, that no one of you be puffed up for one against another.

Judging Without Vs Within

Those without the Body of Christ we are not to be judging.  The reason for this is those outside the faith do not have spiritual ears to hear the Word now.  It is the Word that shall judge all men, but only in the last day of the carnal age for every man.  That day is today for the very few but for the rest of mankind that will come in the Lake of Fire at the Second Resurrection.  It is our speaking the Words of fire that brings judgment (Jer 5:14) but if someone cannot hear, they cannot now be judged.

Joh 12:47 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.

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.

We are commanded not to keep company with spiritual fornicators and not even share a spiritual meal with them (1 Cor 5:9-11).  The reasons are many fold.  First, we can easily be corrupted by keeping bad spiritual company (1 Cor 15:33) and allowing even a little leaven into our spiritual house.

1Co 5:6 Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?

Secondly, we are working against the Lord in trying to impart Truths on one who has not been prepared to hear.

1Ti 5:22 Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be partaker of other men’s sins: keep thyself pure.

Pro 20:12 The hearing ear, and the seeing eye, the LORD hath made even both of them.

If the Lord has not opened one’s ears to hear we will know it quite readily.  His sheep do hear His voice that we speak.

1Jn 4:6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

We are not to judge those people; we are to turn them over to the Lord who will use His instruments including Satan to destroy their flesh in due time.  We are to judge OURSELVES and those within THE BODY OF CHRIST ONLY.

1Co 5:12 For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within?

1Co 5:13 But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.

This is why we are told to put out those that bring heresy and openly live in sin.  We should not need to speculate over the Lord’s sovereignty and hopefully will believe taking such a seemingly harsh act is actually the manifestation of what loving our neighbor actually entails.  Let the Lord have vengeance, only He can destroy the flesh and humble His little ones to return to their first love.

This is very difficult, a narrow road indeed especially when involving our physical families and loved ones.  It can seem so unloving to the natural man to not get engaged in the affairs of the world.

2Ti 2:4 No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.

Ezr 6:21 And the children of Israel, which were come again out of captivity, and all such as had separated themselves unto them from the filthiness of the heathen of the land, to seek the LORD God of Israel, did eat,

How do we obey the commands and take seriously our doctrines and purge out the leaven from our midst and stay on the narrow road? How do we be that ambassador for Christ yet be a watchman over the house of Israel? We are first and foremost to be examining ourselves and making sure we are walking in the faith and clinging to sound doctrine.

2Co 13:5 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves.

 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.

God’s chosen people, His Elect, will be making judgments and meditating on the Word of God constantly and making the necessary judgments to strive to stay on the narrow road and avoid the spiritual diseases that plague Babylonians.

Exo 15:26 And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.

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:

 “Doing what is right in his sight” includes keeping leaven out of our spiritual house.  The narrow way requires that we make many judgments and admonish one another.  Unless we are willing to speak up, be honest with ourselves first and also be willing to go to brothers and sisters as faithful watchman we are not trusting fully in the Lord.  We are here to watch over the flock of God and must learn to be obedient to those commands now.  Otherwise, how can the Lord use us in the ages to come if we don’t move on to maturity now?  Here is how the body is to operate and to heal itself as we are the sum of our parts in the Body of Christ.

Jas 5:19 Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him;

Jas 5:20 Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.

There is a reason we have Matthew 18 and Leviticus 13-14 and many other Scriptures.

Mat 18:15 Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.

Mat 18:16 But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.

Mat 18:17 And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican.

A witness from the Old Testament would include the processes of dealing with leprosy in Leviticus.

Lev 13:2 When a man shall have in the skin of his flesh a rising, a scab, or bright spot, and it be in the skin of his flesh like the plague of leprosy; then he shall be brought unto Aaron the priest, or unto one of his sons the priests:

Lev 13:3 And the priest shall look on the plague in the skin of the flesh: and when the hair in the plague is turned white, and the plague in sight be deeper than the skin of his flesh, it is a plague of leprosy: and the priest shall look on him, and pronounce him unclean.

The Lord does not want us chopping off literal body parts, but in order to keep our walk clean and the entire Body of Christ pure, we are given commands that require us to put our trust in Him and the work He will do in the heart of His creation.  We must be willing to chop off those unhealthy parts and cast them out less the entire body be impacted.

Mat 5:30 And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

Preaching the Word to one another, the only ones with ears to hear and the focus of Christ’s ministry, brings rebuke and reproof to our sins and ungodly ways.  This is a good thing!

2Ti 4:2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

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:

Joh 16:8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:

Not being faithful watchmen is a recipe for disaster and spiritual stagnation as Paul continues the instruction to Timothy.  This is speaking of what will happen within the Body of Christ.

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;

2Ti 4:4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

Thankfully the Lord is faithful to make His Elect watchmen who have a responsibility to oversee the flock and to warn, rebuke and discipline when we are led astray or living in error.  If we fail to warn and fail to blow the trumpet we will bear stripes for such disobedience.

Eze 33:7 So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me.

God’s Elect will be on this narrow road which will include blowing the trumpet, warning the people but how we do this is essential.

Jer 6:17 Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken.

We need to walk softly and carry a big stick!  But that stick is the WORD and that is what does the work.  We just need to bring these Truths to others and stand and let the Lord give the increase.  There is no place in the kingdom of God for harshness.  We must learn to be meek and gentle in Spirit but strong in the Words of fire that we speak.  I have failed miserably in trying to do right by being harsh, seemingly mean and looking down upon others and being an accuser of my brethren who ultimately is all men.

Judging men by the spirit means to recognize that no man is responsible for the behavior, that the Lord is indeed working ALL THINGS for the counsel of His will. Very few are given the faith to believe this truth and thus judge like Christ judged.

Joh 8:15 Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.

2Co 5:16 Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh

We stop judging men after the flesh and do it by the spirit of Truth, when we properly apply the sovereignty of God and learn to not even think above what is written.  If we are truly God’s people, we better be making judgments. The whole of Matthew seven tells us how to judge.  We will reap what we sow and that applies to judgment as well.

 Mat 7:1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.

When we judge in the flesh we will be judged in the flesh.  It comes back to us.

Mat 7:2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

If we truly love the Lord, we will want the same measure of Truth to be meted out to us in judgment.  There is no darkness that shall not be revealed and brought to the light (Luk 8:17).  So with this mindset, it is a good thing when we are judged and we should be thankful for a brother or sister to point out leaven in our doctrine or sin in our walk.

The pride of man and the deceitfulness of sin that lies in our hearts is an easy snare and cause of stumbling until we learn to judge righteously. Before we go showing others the mote in their eyes, we had best learn to examine ourselves first and make sure we are not castaways (1 Co 9:27).  We can’t help anyone spiritually if we ourselves have poor spiritual eyesight.

 Mat 7:5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye (by making spiritual judgments, trying spirits).

We must learn to let God judge those without. Before we judge within the Body we must first judge ourselves.  If we cannot learn to judge and do it righteously in this age, we will have NO PART in being God’s judges during the Millennium Reign or at the Great White Throne Judgment. This is just how important it is that we learn to judge righteous judgment.  We must know when to judge and how to judge using the Scriptures as our plumb line.  The whole purpose of the Lord having an Elect is to make ready the remnant of His people through which all men shall enter into the city.

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

 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.

 Many times we are too hasty to judge things and do not wait on the Lord.  Another criterion of judging is to wait on the Lord to work His work in others and give the trees time to bear fruit.

1Co 4:5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.

 We will always know things by the fruit on the trees (Mat 7:16-20).

Loving our brothers includes pulling specks out of their eyes, judging all things, and judging righteous judgment. The doctrine that says judge nobody or nothing is not love. It is actually the spirit of a harlot church aka Spiritual Babylon that has NO JUDGMENT in it.

Isa 1:21 How is the faithful city become an harlot! it was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers (hating the doctrines of Christ).

But the Lord is faithful even when we are not.  A day will come when He will restore judgment to the House of Israel.  Today is that day of salvation for the Elect of God.

Isa 1:26 And I will restore thy judges as at the first, and thy counsellors as at the beginning: afterward thou shalt be called, The city of righteousness, the faithful city.

The judgment of God by HIS WORD is what sanctifies us. It is how we are redeemed, it is what causes the death of the old man by the sword and fire of God.

Isa 1:27 Zion shall be redeemed with judgment, and her converts with righteousness.

Loving you neighbor as yourself is our commandment.  The mercy of the Lord is living thru the trials that bring forth salvation in due time.  Mercy will rejoice and triumph over judgment and we must trust in those promises and become obedient to the perfect law of liberty.

Jas 2:12 So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty.

Jas 2:13 For he shall have judgment without mercy, that hath shewed no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment.

Bringing this judgment by the words we speak is how the mercy of the Lord is made manifest in our lives and how we give spiritual food, clothing and housing to our brethren who need it to sustain themselves. These are the greater works that bring salvation. Our faith without doing the works of judgment within the house of God are dead.

Jas 2:14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?

Jas 2:15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food,

Jas 2:16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?

Jas 2:17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.

All of us who have come through the door of “The Christ” are a shepherd of the sheep.

Joh 10:2 But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.

Those who will be abiding in everlasting burnings will be God’s Elect who abide in the fire of the Word judging righteous judgment.

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;

This calling comes with a duty to be the watchman on the wall and admonish and edify one another through the speaking of the Word and sharing of communion.  We must not neglect or take lightly such a high calling.  We need one another to be saved.  It is the only way we will learn to judge and be judged now.  Hence we are reminded of the importance of being connected.

1Jn 1:7  But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

Heb 10:25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching

The Lost House of Israel

images

Jer 50:6  My people hath been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray, they have turned them away on the mountains: they have gone from mountain to hill, they have forgotten their restingplace.

The Lord’s people have all been lost sheep before they came into the truth and know Jesus Christ and His Father.  We are all first led astray into false doctrines by the false shepherds’s that occupy every church and every pulpit in orthodox Christianity.

Jesus Christ was only sent to minister to the Lost House of Israel.  This is who is being saved and the target of the ministry of Jesus Christ for salvation.  While Christ will in due time save all men ever born;  for now and in each age (AION in Greek) since His resurrection, He is only appearing to and working with the few chosen who are the true Israel of God.

Mat 15:24  But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

The lost house of Israel is nothing more than symbolic language for God’s very Elect, the few chosen who are the apple of God’s eyes and the ones He brings judgment to in this life (AION/age).  The Lord sent His chosen disciples and commands them to go forth in the same way He was sent by His Father.  Both only go to the Lost House of Israel.

Mat 10:5  These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:

Mat 10:6  But go rather (only) to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

The sheep of the Lord are only those that hear His word.  If you do not hear His words in spirit and in truth one is not a sheep of the Lord.

Joh 10:27  My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

The Lord of course is the one who must CAUSE His sheep to hear His words in those appointed times.

Pro 1:23  Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.

Jer 18:2  Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words

And just to be sure, the real sheep of the Lord (the Lost House of Israel) also know Him and follow Him, which is really saying they obey Him and His commandments.  That is exactly what hearing His words does, that is what it causes over time, and that is how the lost sheep our indeed found.

Eze 36:27And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.  (and here is how He does that)

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

Jesus Christ IS THE LORD!   Yet it is amazing how the entire world thinks the flesh Jews are the Lord’s people when they don’t even believe He is, was and will be their Messiah.  Anyone who hears the voice of God, who speaks only thru Christ is not going to be practicing Judaism.  Jews in the flesh don’t hear His voice nor do they even believe in Him or claim His name.  They deny Jesus Christ and that is all by the design of the Lord and no fault of their own.   In fact they were made to kill Jesus Christ exactly as God planned it.

Act 4:26  The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord, and against his Christ.

Act 4:27  For of a truth against thy holy child Jesus, whom thou hast anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together,

Act 4:28  For to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done.

But make no mistake, the references in Scripture to the lost house or lost sheep of Israel has nothing to do with the flesh jews.    As we shall see, they were just the shadow of the real thing that would come much later.

Of course this will all be nonsense to those without ears to hear the truth of God’s word who have been ensnared by the philosophy of a carnal world and the traditions of men.  This post will explore in great detail the tradition of men and the orthodox apostate churches that are the Christianity those yet carnal embrace and know.  Such way of thinking is not after Christ, it is vanity but they just don’t know it at this time.

Col 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

But when one’s ears are opened and we are also given spiritual sight, then the truths of God’s word, the pure doctrines of Christ will begin to work their work in us and the lies will be removed little by little. This post was inspired by an email I got from someone well steeped into the traditions of the orthodox church who has not yet been given to know who is the Israel of God and could not hear the truth I shared.  I took time to provide an honest and true answer and want to share that answer here for others who may be led to this website to be fed the true doctrines (the bread of life) of Jesus Christ.  When our time of spiritual fasting has come to an end, it is time to eat and the disciples of Christ (The Body of Christ) will be the ones to speak the words that feed the flock of God.

Joh 21:15  So when they had broken their fast, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of John, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.

Replacement Theology Is The Truth

The Apostle Peter was a replacement theologian.  Writing to the ELECT in his letter, he tells us who those chosen few truly are and that we are the people of God.

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:

1Pe 2:10  Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.

The flesh Jews are not the people of God and never were.  They like the entire OT were mere types and shadows of the true things of God that would not be revealed until Christ came many hundreds of years later.  A type and a shadow is not the real thing, they just show us how the real things works in the spirit.  It is essential to come to know that the entire bible is a parable, written in types, shadows and symbols.  The Lord must give us the keys to unlock this which is the mind of Christ, the ability to hear His words and see spiritual truths. We are told all physical things are just shadows of deeper spiritual truths and so it is with the story of the flesh Jews.

Rom 1:20  For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, (if one has the mind of Christ and ears to hear) even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

Carnal men blinded by traditions of men and false Babylonian doctrines, have labelled this truth about the true Jews as “replacement theology”.  It sounds so negative and invented to the carnal mind, but if we just stick with the Scriptures and not the traditions of men; it is easy to prove that the flesh Jews are not those to whom the precious promises of God were given.   Those promises Peter and Paul mention were given not to the flesh Jews (which they were of a physical lineage) but only to the Elect of God who were scattered all over this world and came from many nations, tribes and tongues.   And note like all things, this blessing and the promises are GIVEN to us so no free will is involved.

2Pe 1:3  According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

2Pe 1:4  Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

That is all reserved for His Elect who are the spiritual Jews and have been chosen by the Lord and dragged out of this world and into the marvelous light of the Body of Christ. Before we cover the multiple witnesses to this truth let’s be reminded again that many are called and only a few are chosen to be given the truth and the ears to hear and eyes to see.

Few Hear, See and have the gift of Faith

Contrary to what we are taught in the Babylonian churches of men, the Lord Himself is in the business of blinding the entire world and making the entire world deaf to hear His word and blind to see the truth.  He the Lord does all those things and He does them on purpose.

Exo 4:11  And the LORD said unto him, Who hath made man’s mouth? or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I the LORD?

2Th 2:11  And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

Jesus said the same when speaking with His disciples and this truth has never changed, His words is, was and will be and shall never pass away.

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.

Those blinded by false doctrines cannot see the truth, they cannot believe even if they tried.  This was true back 2000 years ago with the flesh Jews representing the organized church of that age and it is still true in the organized churches in the modern world be it Judaism, Islam and yes even all of orthodox Christianity (Baptists, Methodists, 7th Day Adventist, Hebrew Roots Christians, Lutheran, Roman Catholics, Non Denominational, ALL OF THEM). The professing church is the world in Scripture and that is exactly who the Lord has blinded.  They  like the flesh Jews before them cannot believe the truth spoken by the true church (God’s Elect) that Jesus Christ Himself is building.

Joh 12:39  Therefore they could not believe, because that Esaias said again,

Joh 12:40  He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.

It is those that say they are of God but are not who the Lord has blinded, to this very day. The professing church is in total apostasy, and only the few Elect have obtained the gift.  So says the word despite what carnal minds want to argue otherwise!

Rom 11:7  What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded

Rom 11:8  (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.

As the words say above, the Lord gave them “the flesh Israel” (representing the organized religion of that day and the ages to follow) a spirit of slumber so they would not see and not hear.  And the Lord changes not.  Organized religions today, are totally blind, in thick darkness to the truth and preach another jesus based upon thousands of false doctrines. Faith, the real kind is indeed the gift the Scriptures say it is.  It has to be given and it comes with ears to hear.

Eph 2:8  For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

In fact, this faith is not even ours, it is the faith OF Christ if one digs for the truth.

Gal 2:20  I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

With this reminder that few will be able to receive the truth, let’s now look at multiple witnesses that will tell us who is the true Israel of God and put the flesh Jews and the modern day nation of Israel into the proper perspective.

MY WORDS ARE SPIRIT

Coming to see that all the Scriptures speak of spiritual truths and the references to the physical are merely types and shadows quickly leads to spiritual growth and maturity into the deeper things of God.

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.

Being anything in the flesh, a Jew or otherwise profits itself nothing.  The Bible means what it means not what it says because the words are SPIRIT first and foremost and their meaning is spiritual.  Those clinging to an outward and literal application have no clue as to what is actually being said.  They have not been given the gift to understand.

1Co 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.

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.

There it is.  We are taught by comparing spiritual things to spiritual things.  This also very much applies to determining who are God’s people, the true Israel.  Carnal minds always try to compare physical things to spiritual things or vice versa but that just leads to deception and greater spiritual blindness. One of the great mysteries that the orthodox churches are totally blinded to is understanding basic symbols in Scripture and seeing that all the old testament was merely a type and a shadow of greater spiritual truths.

1Co 10:6  Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they (the flesh jews) also lusted.

The OT is all types and shadows of spiritual realities and experiences that would play out many years in the future after Christ gave His Spirit and the generations of His Elect ever since.

To Whom Was the Old Testament Written?

If one can receive it, this truth is going to blow you away.  The entire bible and stories of the flesh nation of Israel reveal deep hidden truths, the mysteries of the kingdom of God to God’s very Elect. That is exactly why they were written down and preserved for us.

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

Note it is not some, it is ALL THESE THINGS.  All the stories, all the events, all the words were caused to happen for God’s true Israel, who would not appear until much later. Here is a revealing Scriptures that tells us this also.  The prophets were not ministering to the flesh jews, they were ministering to God’s very Elect who would not even come for hundreds and thousands of years later.  Don’t take my word on it, let’s see what the Apostle Peter had to say which adds to the sum of God’s word in this topic.

1Pe 1:10  Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you:

1Pe 1:11  Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow.

1Pe 1:12  Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.

The Lie of Flesh Israel

Until the lie of who Israel is removed from one’s spiritual eyes, and one is given repentance from the many false doctrines they learn in the orthodox churches; they will have no chance to begin to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God.  This plank, the lie of flesh Israel must be removed in the same way the logs of eternal hellfire and man having any free will must be similarly removed if the Lord would have mercy upon you. Anyone thinking outwardly in the flesh that believes the physical Jews and modern nation of Israel has anything to do with the Israel of God are sorely mistaken and under very strong delusion.

The Bible is written for and to God’s Elect, it is not written for the world and those who cannot hear His word and by predestination have not ears to hear or eyes to see. The flesh Jews did not hear His word back then and they do not hear it today either, they are not of Christ.  But if you are given to see that the flesh Jews represent a symbol, they symbolize Babylon, apostate Christianity that claims to know the Lord but do not. We all are in this condition until and unless the Lord gives us the gift and opens our ears to hear His word.

Joh 8:43  Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.

Joh 8:44  Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

Joh 8:45  And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.

Pro 20:12  The hearing ear, and the seeing eye, the LORD hath made even both of them.

The true people of God are those the Lord chooses and it is these same few to whom He gives faith and ears to hear and eyes to see spiritual truths.  The Lord continues to this very day to use the outward deception of the flesh Jews to keep the multitudes that call themselves by His name blinded to the truth.  Christ words are always only for those who have an ear to hear.

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

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.

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

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

The Lord has prepared very few hearts and caused extremely few to hear His words in spirit.  It is everybody else, i.e. THE WHOLE WORLD who is deceived and cannot hear His word and that certainly includes on the truth about the Israel of God.

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.

Not all Israel Is Israel

In Romans 9 we have Paul telling us of this mystery of the kingdom – Not all Israel is Israel!

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

So right here we have a glimpse into the Lord’s MO of hiding His truths from the world and deceiving them. This lie about the Israel of God has taken on much greater importance in the last 70 years with the formation of the modern nation of Israel in 1948 and the repopulation of fleshly Jews to this small country in the middle east.  What an incredible miracle no doubt, but the Lord is in the business of creating lying signs and wonders to deceive the multitudes and this is certainly one of those.

2Th 2:9  Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

Rev 13:14  And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

The re-emergence of a flesh Israel is indeed a miraculous work of God but as we just see it is also a lying sign and wonder.  It is a deception that is brought about to keep the entire world in spiritual darkness, thinking outwardly and away from the kingdom of God that is within.

Luk 17:20  And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:

Luk 17:21  Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

The flesh Jews of all time and that physical nation that exists today; are not the people of God.  Here is a continuation of Romans 9 and a black and white truth about who are God’s true people.

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.

There you have an incredible witness against anyone claiming the flesh Jews are the people of God.  The children of the flesh ARE NOT the children of God.  It says right here that being a physical descendant of Abraham (the seed of Abraham) does not make one a child of God.  Only those of faith and we shall see this is the faith of Christ, the one seed, represented by Isaac in spirit are the true children of God.  They would not come until Pentecost because it was not possible to be converted and have Christ formed in oneself until that time.

A time is appointed for all of us, all men of all time, that the mother of Christ (Sara, Rebecca, Rachael, etc. in type and shadow) will have a child, the new man.  That is what these spiritual words in the completion of Romans 9 are speaking about.  The old man will bow down to the new man within us all in due time.  The story of Esau and Jacob foretell of this and this is mentioned here by Paul in Romans 9 and tells of this deep spiritual truth.  Esau the first man of the flesh will indeed serve Jacob the new man of the Spirit.  But how all this works is based upon God’s Election, it has nothing to do with the delusion of man having free will.

Rom 9:9  For this is the word of promise, At this time will I come, and Sara shall have a son.

Rom 9:10  And not only this; but when Rebecca also had conceived by one, even by our father Isaac;

Rom 9:11  (For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth;)

Rom 9:12  It was said unto her, The elder shall serve the younger.

 Flesh Jews Contrasted With Spiritual Jews

Truth is established by two or three witnesses but on the topic of who is a real Jew and by extension who are the true people of God we have very many witnesses.  Let’s deal with a direct in your face truth about this right now.  Earlier in Romans,Paul wrote some powerful words that close out chapter 2 and begin the man made chapter break of chapter 3.

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.

We already saw Christ’s words about the flesh profit itself NOTHING.  We already saw Paul’s words that the children of the flesh Jews ARE NOT the people of God.  Here we see that being a Jew outwardly, i.e. IN THE FLESH means nothing and those are not the true Jews.

When Paul continues beyond the man inserted chapter break, he is speaking of the real Jews, the spiritual ones the very Israel of God.

Rom 3:1  What advantage then hath the [spiritual] Jew? or what profit is there of [spiritual] circumcision?

Rom 3:2  Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them [that is the spiritual Jew] were committed the oracles [the Word] of God.

The fact is it all comes back to Christ.  You either have Christ or you don’t and if you don’t you are NONE OF HIS and not a partaker of the Lord’s promises to Israel.

Rom 8:9  But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

Abraham Had Two Sons, One Flesh, One of Promise

The fact is it is the SPIRITUAL descendants of  Abraham that are Christ’s seed, not the physical ones.  This is quite clear from Galatians.

Gal 4:22  For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman.

Gal 4:23  But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise.  (IE GIVEN BY FAITH, the GIFT)

Gal 4:24  Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar.

Gal 4:25  For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.

Gal 4:26  But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all. (God’s Elect)

Gal 4:27  For it is written, Rejoice, thou barren that bearest not; break forth and cry, thou that travailest not: for the desolate hath many more children than she which hath an husband.

Gal 4:28  Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, (NOT THE FLESH JEWS) are the children of promise.

The flesh jews are the one by the bondmaid, they walk after the flesh.  They are in bondage today while God’s Elect, the spiritual descendants IN CHRIST are free.  Only those GIVEN the gift are children of the promise that were given to Abraham thru his son Isaac as an example for us today.

How can be the physical jews, WHO DENY CHRIST be the Israel of God?  They never were and here is proof.

Gal 3:16 Now to Abraham and his seed (not seeds, not including the flesh child) were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.

The flesh matters not anymore as Paul said here.  All that matters is one in Christ or not?

Gal 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

Gal 3:29 And if ye be Christ’s, (THE FLESH JEWS ARE NOT) then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

So here it is black and white about who is of the seed of Christ and heirs to the promises of God.   Being a fleshly descendant of Abraham is expressly EXCLUDED.  The physical nation of Israel and the so called flesh Jews are NOT in Christ and therefore cannot possibly be God’s people and as this says, they are not heirs according to the promise.  The promise was not made to Abraham’s son born after the flesh (Ishmael) but was only made to the son and descendants born after the spirit (Isaac).  The flesh jews are of Ishmael not of Isaac.

Who is the Real Circumcision, of the SPIRIT?

God’s Elect are the true circumcision.  Nobody should be boasting when they make such a claim but then again to deny who we are in Christ is to deny Christ.

Psa 107:2  Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy;

The flesh Jews do not even know Christ and were just the examples of God’s true people who would come much later.  All men are in actuality GENTILES in the flesh.  We all start there being carnal minded and of our father the devil.  God’s Elect are called out of the world like all orthodox Christians (many are called), yet only a few are chosen to then be dragged to the real Christ and come out of the Babylonian churches built by the works od the flesh.  The flesh Jews indeed will call God’s Elect and anyone who keeps not the law of Moses the uncircumcision.  Yet the flesh Jews are in utter darkness to this day as circumcision in the flesh means nothing and unless the Lord builds the house, men will continue to toil in vain.   The Lord does not need human hands to do anything for Him and that includes saving His Elect now (His true church) and eventually all men.

Eph 2:11  Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;

Php 3:3  For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.

Gal 6:15  For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, 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.

Only those made new by the Lord’s fiery work of bringing judgment against our old man will be the true circumcision who are called right here The Israel of God.

Physical circumcision avails itself nothing.All of that was merely a type and a shadow of the true circumcision that the Lord performs in us to bring forth the new man and brings His saints out of Babylon and away from the world.

1Co 7:19  (Physical) Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but the keeping of the commandments of God.

Gal_5:6 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.

It is only a ritual, now an established tradition of men and followed by many.  But it means nothing and as I hope you are beginning to see, the act of physical circumcision was only a type and a shadow of the true circumcision that the Lord Himself does.

Col_2:11  In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:

Here is an old testament witness to the Lord doing it all.  It is by His finger, His work in us — we are mere clay in His hands.  No free will involved.

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.

Where “Christ” is Sent to Minister

The natural Jews serve only as a shadow of the real spiritual Jews, who is the true “Israel of God”.  All the promises of God made to the flesh Jews were spiritual types and shadows of greater spiritual truths that would come in the future.  The covenant and promises that referred to physical things really were about spiritual things that would become evident in the years ahead as God’s Elect, the true Israel of God would appear in the generations since Pentecost.  The true spiritual Jews have  indeed obtained advantage in “much every way” and profits through the new creation in Christ chiefly because that unto us have been  committed the oracles of God.  We are the ministers of the Lord, He works thru Christ His body.

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

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.

I sure hope some wood is being burned (the carnal reasonings within the natural man) by some of you reading this post.  

The flesh jews will be saved in the lake of fire like the rest of mankind.  Ezekiel 16 and many other passages tell us of the Lord’s timetable and how that will come about.  The salvation of all is the most basic truth, the sincere MILK of the word that one must begin to drink to even begin to grow in true knowledge.  ow that simply from scores of Scriptures that convey this truth which directly contradicts the most basis lie of Satan’s churches that preach of eternal hellfire

Luk 3:6 And all flesh (even the flesh jews who reject Christ, even Muslims, etc) shall see the salvation of God.

Even Hosea tells us of this mystery and gathering together of all men into ONE which will be the outcome of the lake of fire that will purify all.  Those that are not God’s people now (the flesh Jews, the Babylonian Christians, the muslims, ALL MEN, the sand of the sea in type….) will become God’s people in due time.

Hos 1:10  Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God.

The carnal mind is at enmity with the true word of God.  Once we receive this implanted word we will increasingly be pulled out and separated.  Our past life will be utterly destroyed, all things indeed are made new as the old man dies and Christ in us is brought forward.  We indeed must lose our old way of life to find Christ. There is no mixing of the two.

Mat 16:25  For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.

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.

The Lost House Of Israel once “found” by the Lord will not be yoked with those without the camp of the true Israel.  They will separate with the unbelievers and that specifically includes those that know the other jesus in the flesh and are still bound up captive in Babylon, the apostate churches of orthodox Christianity.  We cannot be fellowshipping with them.  We cannot mix the cup of the Lord with doctrines of demons.

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,

Paul goes on to remind us that the promises of Israel were given to God’s Elect, this is the high calling and we are commanded to cleanse ourselves and remove ourselves from all things that defile.  That certainly includes worldly things but unless we are given to take heed the importance of pure doctrines and come to see that love means obeying God’s commandments, even those that tell us to separate from unbelievers, we won’t be able to mature.

2Co 7:1  Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, (The Elect Corinthians) let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, (outward sins and FALSE DOCTRINES) perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

Christ sends His Christ in exactly the same way God sent Him.  This is indeed the higher calling that God’s Elect are being prepared for in this age.

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

Those that are part of Christ are instructed to only go to the lost house of Israel also.  We saw it earlier in the post but is worthy of a reminder.  We are not to enter into the house of the Gentiles we are to wait upon the Lord to bring us sheep to feed, otherwise we are disobeying the Lord.

Mat 10:5  These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:

Mat 10:6  But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

These statements have nothing to do with the flesh or the lineage of flesh Jews.  The lost house of Israel is nothing less than God’s Elect who have yet to hear the word of truth spoken to their God given ears to hears and eyes to see.  But as able ministers of the WORD, a day will come when some, VERY FEW, will hear. I have experienced this and the Lord has been faithful to bring a few lambs to be fed.  Yet we have many admonishments about casting our pearls before swine and only sharing, breaking bread with those the Lord has prepared to hear.  That is the Lost House of Israel.  Here are some witnesses to this truth.

Mat 10:12  And when ye come into an house, salute it.

Mat 10:13  And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it: but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you.

Mat 10:14  And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.

And this one from the Apostle John.

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 (spiritual) house, neither bid him God speed:

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

As God’s Elect we follow the example of the Lord in not laying hands suddenly on any man lest we cast pearls and they turn and rend us.

Mat 7:6  Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, (Unbelievers without ears to hear) neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

As Paul admonishes us we are not to speak of spiritual matters (eat at the Lord’s table) with those that fornicate with the world that try to teach carnal doctrines and the lies of Babylon.  We are indeed to separate from those that have not the true faith of God.

1Co 5:11  But now I have written unto you not to keep company, (come out of Babylon) 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. (speak on spiritual matters)

The reality is that the lost house of Israel is not lost to the Lord.  He knows who are His and they will be found right on schedule as it has all been ordained from the beginning.

2Ti 2:19  Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. 

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.

No Tribes of Israel are Lost

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.

the Lord loses none of His sheep. The spiritual tribes of Israel are not lost.  All the fragments that make up this one bread, this one body are gathered.

Joh 6:12  When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.

It is beyond this post to refute the false teaching of carnal minds that want to claim the missing flesh tribes of ancient Israel omitted in some Scriptural references are the lost house of Israel.  They are not.  James and the other apostles were writing letters and speaking to all 12 spiritual tribes.

Act_26:7  Unto which promise our twelve tribes, instantly serving God day and night, hope to come. For which hope’s sake, king Agrippa, I am accused of the Jews.

Jas_1:1  James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting.

The true Israel of God, the Elect are fulfilling this prophecy today, eating and drinking at the Lord’s table and judging the 12 tribes,  NONE IS LOST.

Luk_22:30  That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

The First and Last: The Alpha and the Omega

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

All things are of God is a most important spiritual pillar that is so often spoken about on this blog and believed by so precious few.  This includes everything, the good, the bad, the dark, the light, even our very sins without any exceptions.

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:

So few are given to know this and brought into this inheritance in this life in these clay vessels.  But it does not change the immutable truth of who the Lord is and what He is doing in the lives of men.

Dan 4:35  And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and he doeth according to his will in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his hand, or say unto him, What doest thou?

Jesus is the beginning and the end.  Sure He created all things thru the power God gave to Him and it is Him who hold all things together.  These verses cannot be shown enough, if only people could believe them.

Col 1:16  For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

Col 1:17  And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

 Rom 11:36  For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.

1Co 8:6  But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.

Yet these profound words of Scripture about “ALL THINGS” and the  Lord being the Alpha and Omega are far larger and profound than anyone yet carnal can comprehend, until their eyes are opened to see.

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

What this verse and many others like it say for those who can believe, is that all things that happen and that anyone does are from the Lord.  Jesus Christ is the first and the last, the beginning and the end.  But do you know that all men are first Adam and then the Lord from heaven?  Did you know that first comes the man of sinful flesh thru Christ and then comes the new man thru Christ? Don’t you know that flesh and blood was never intended to inherit the kingdom of God and cannot?

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

First the natural than the spiritual.  But all things in between, THE ALPHA and the OMEGA, are still all IN CHRIST. 

Paul’s words describe this macro truth and giant pillar that if you are given too see it and believe it will open up giant doors in your heaven to receive the truth and grow in knowledge of the Lord.

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. (first and last)

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. (alpha and omega, beginning and the end)

So all men will go thru this process, it only matters the times appointed before hand.  You see all things have been written in our books of life before there were any such days.  That is simply how powerful God Almighty is and the carnal mind just cannot accept these truths.  But God’s Elect will simply stick with the Scriptures that sayeth this:

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.

Job 14:5  Seeing his days are determined, the number of his months are with thee, thou hast appointed his bounds that he cannot pass;

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:

And yes this includes our initial marred in the flesh, rebellious and sinful state.  There are no exclusions to God’s sovereignty despite what our carnal minds might want to believe.

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.

Here is the vision of what God the potter is making and the process He has ordained for it. Contrary to Babylon folklore, man did not fall in the garden, but instead was created in bodies of sinful flesh on purpose.  And this is how ALL ISRAEL shall be saved in the end!!

Jer 18:1  The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying,

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.

Jer 18:5  Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying,

Jer 18:6  O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the LORD. Behold, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel.

The New testament says the same thing, God’s plan never changed.  So much for the lie about the fall of mankind, it sure seems to say we were created marred ON PURPOSE!!!!!  That is Christ’s work in us.

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.

Rom 8:22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.

Nobody has arrived in these clay vessels.  We all wait but God’s Elect, the firstfruits will understand these things and earnestly be praying for the hastening of the Lord’s work in us.  A down payment or earnest of the Spirit is awesome but we wait for the fullness of the purchased possession in our new spiritual bodies.

Rom 8:23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.

God first gives us this experience of evil on purpose.  We have to learn good and evil and recent posts such as Who Is The Author of Evil  and I Make All Things New have spoken on those topics at length.

In God’s higher ways, our own wickedness is used to correct us in due time.  But make no mistake, this is all HIS work in us, we have nothing to do with it.  He is the alpha and the omega in our lives and the lives of every human being that has or will ever exists.

Jer 2:19 Thine own wickedness shall correct thee, and thy backslidings shall reprove thee: know therefore and see that it is an evil thing and bitter, that thou hast forsaken the LORD thy God, and that my fear is not in thee, saith the Lord GOD of hosts.

Via the process of judgment we will learn good and evil and be taught the righteousness that is only found in Christ.

Isa 26:9 With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early: for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.

And here is a great verse rarely seen or believed by the carnal minds of those in Babylon who cling to their strong delusion of eternal torment and free will of men.

 Psa 90:3  Thou turnest man to destruction; and sayest, Return, ye children of men.

The fact is that everything we do is IN CHRIST.  He is the first and the last, the beginning and the end; he is the alpha and the omega.  Even the bad stuff that is cut off is IN CHRIST.  Still don’t believe?  What sayeth the Lord?

Joh 15:2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.

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.

Paul tells us this also, in this very profound and enlightening Scripture. The Lord is not coming in behind us cleaning up our messes, He is working all things for the counsel of His will.

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.

Knowing that all things that happen are not some coincidence or strange happenstance but are for the sakes of God’s very Elect is a mind blowing truth.  As we grow we can begin to look behind in our walk and see how the Lord has done these things to us.  I have suffered much of late, been stripped of many things but all those things were done for the sake of the new Peter and Christ in me to grow and for the old man Pete to die.  Even the suffering, especially the trials and the suffering.

2Co 4:15  For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God.

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:

As we begin to grow in the truth, we will finally come to understand this truth and why we should work out our own salvation with fear and not be murmuring and disputing with the carnally minded.

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 YOUR FREE WILL) which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

Php 2:14  Do all things without murmurings and disputings:

It is coming to believe and not doubt this truth  — that Christ is the first and the last and all points in between that is spiritual maturity.  We have to be brought to our wits end with our sins and be taught that of our own striving we cannot and will not conquer anything.  We are all first fools and incapable of stopping our sinning despite the outwardly clean cups we remain full of death with uncircumcised hearts.  But then the Lord comes to bring judgment and destroy that beast within us all.

Psa 107:17  Fools because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, are afflicted.

Psa 107:18  Their soul abhorreth all manner of meat (true doctrines) ; and they draw near unto the gates of death (believing false doctrines and lies such as eternal torment and free will)

Psa 107:19  Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he saveth them out of their distresses (when they come to see they are truly a beast and nothing good dwells in their flesh, etc)

Psa 107:20  He sent his word (causes them to hear His word spoken by the angels of God), and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.

This process begins IN CHRIST when we see and when we as the reader understand who and what is the abomination of desolation.

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:)

Once that happens then the victory will come little by little.  This is the Lord’s work in us to bring salvation and give us deliverance.  It will only take place if we are brought to Mt. Zion with spiritually speaking means into His Body.  We all will live the experience of thinking this is all up to us yet we will miserably fail. This is part of what living by every word of the Lord means.  Yet in our day of judgment, if that day has come in this age, we will learn otherwise.

Psa 107:23  They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters (CARNAL WORKS, FLESH)

Psa 107:24  These see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the deep.

Psa 107:25  For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof.

Psa 107:26  They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: their soul is melted because of trouble.

Psa 107:27  They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wits’ end.

Psa 107:28  Then (when they see they are the beast, the abomination, in need of repentance, need a physician……THEN) they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses.

Psa 107:29  He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still.

Psa 107:30  Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven.

We all must be dragged to Christ.  He brings us into the desired haven, we would never make such a free will decision of our own choosing.  The real Jesus is a rock of offense and a stumbling block and we will esteem HIM NOT when we are yet carnal and devoid of ears to hear and eyes to see.

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.

Revealing the antiChrist

We are all antiChrist’s when we go around believing and denying that the Lord is working all things for the counsel of His will.  We deny Jesus Christ with such carnal blasphemies.  It is the spirit of self righteousness, lying spirits that all seduce us at first.  These are the lies and false doctrines taught and believed by billions in orthodox Christianity.  Lord willing we will learn to try those spirits and our own thoughts against what the WORD says to sort out the truth from the lies.

 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.

The spirit that says Jesus Christ was not first and is not the very beginning of our lives and all points in between, the good, the bad, the sins, the stumbling, the falling into lusts and pride, etc………… IS THE LIAR.  Such a spirit denies Jesus Christ, is not from God, and will keep us in bondage and spiritually blind.  This spirit will claim God has nothing to do with our sins and those are free will decisions we ourselves make.  Those spirits, thoughts and doctrines are not from God, they are from the enemy (tares of the field) that the Lord has put there to guard the way to the tree of life.

 1Jn 4:2  Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:

This verse has nothing to do with anyone speaking physically that Jesus Christ came 2,000 years ago in the flesh.  It has a much greater spiritual depth and intended meaning and is speaking about Jesus Christ HIS BODY that lives in each generation and is His Elect.

Eph 5:30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.

It is only when we are given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God (the land within us) that we will be able to bow before the Lord knowing He is working all things after the counsel of His will.  Then we will come to understand what working out our own salvation with fear and trembling means, knowing it is GOD and not us that works in us to will and to way according to His good pleasure (not our delusion of free will).  And here ladies and gentlemen is an easy way to spot the deceiver in ourselves and in those that claim to know the Lord but do not.

 1Jn 4:3  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.

Those that are truly of God will have been given ears to hear this truth and eyes to see it in the Scriptures.  It is everywhere when your eyes are opened.  Here is how we will know who is in the truth and who is not in the truth and that is whether or not our words as God’s Elect are received by those who hear us.

1Jn 4:6  We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

The Lord is the one who first makes our paths crooked and then in due time comes to straighten them out.  He is doing it all, the first and the last and all points in between in our lives in these vessels of clay.  If you are so blessed to be His anointed, to be His Very Elect then these words apply to you.

 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;

See that it is the Lord doing it all.  He holds our right hand (we are His workmanship, mere clay), He subdues kings (sins in our lives, false doctrines we believe), He opens the doors and gates into His Body and in our heaven and gives us ears to hear and eyes to see as His Two Witnesses.  And no delusion of free will or anything else is going to change that, the gates shall not be shut, His word will not fail to accomplish what is has been sent to do.

If we are Cyrus in this age, then the Lord will go before us to make our formerly crooked paths straight.  He will break all the flesh gates and carnal thoughts that have held us back and kept us in bondage in Babylon.

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:

We will come to know He is the Lord when He brings judgment upon us and pours out His wrath on our carnal lusts and desires of the old man.  All things in our lives will be brought into this marvelous light.

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.

We will be dragged to Christ and His name will be written on our mind (forehead).  He is doing this to His Elect only in this age, the true Israel of God that Christ has chosen before the world was even formed.

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.

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:

We will learn by abiding in this fire that is Christ, that there is nothing that happens that is not the Lord doing it.  He truly is the alpha and the omega and we will come to know this with every fiber of our being in due time as we mature in the true faith of God.  We will learn a new appreciation for what Lord means and the completeness of what sovereignty really means.  Apart from Him doing it, we ourselves can do nothing and are in fact clay in the Potter’s hands.

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.

We will be able to speak and show others that it was not them, but the Lord who caused all those pains and evils in their lives and they will see and believe verses such as this.

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

And when a door to our inner heavens is opened to these truths, then the pure doctrine will fall from the sky and come to our earth and the crops and fruit of the Lord will begin to blossom within us which is the righteousness of the saints.

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.

When we continue to strive and not cease from our own carnal works, we will be judged.  That pothsherd (carnal mind) will be destroyed in time and we will no longer believe in any way shape or form the lie of free will that so deludes the masses of mankind.

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?

Jesus is the first and the last.  He is both darkness and light.  He is everything.

Rev 1:8  I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

The salvation of all men is to come.  It only awaits the timing God has already determined.  All things are of the Lord.  I trust this has given some some issues to ponder about the deep meanings of the word of God.

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 (His Elect).
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.

Who Is Responsible For Evil?

earth

NOTE:  This post was updated and shortened along with an audio recording of the study in 2018.  It can be accessed by Clicking Here.  

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.

Jesus is the Lord of heaven and the earth, both the outward and the inward, He is Lord of all.  Jesus Christ whose words shall never pass away told us that without Him we can do nothing.  This statement was true for the disciples that heard it that day and it is equally true for the disciples that hear these words today.  I hope your heavens and your earth (not the things in outer space) are given to hear the truth of what I speak in this post.  It is an essential truth to be set free from the lies and bondage of Babylon.

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

Is the Lord just a terrible parent or is our rebellion part of His plan all along?  No, the Lord is not a bad parent, He is God Almighty and is working all things for the counsel of His will.  The Lord spoke through Isaiah and told us HE brought up children who rebelled against Him.  This rebellion is, was and will be God’s plan for ALL MEN.  That is not talking about some people that lived 3,000 years ago, that is talking about you and me, or ALL MEN of all time.  All men will first rebel against God until the Lord has mercy and brings us to Him in truth and in spirit.

Here we see the Lord’s plan from before the world was formed to be set.  He changes not.  It is the Lord who turns man into destruction, into sin and then in the appointed times calls us back home to Himself.

Psa 90:1  A Prayer of Moses the man of God. Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations.

Psa 90:2  Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.

Psa 90:3  Thou turnest man to destruction; and sayest, Return, ye children of men.

The Lord both turns us away into wicked things and also is the one who grants and causes us to turn back or repent.  He is doing it all.

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

I hope to make you seriously challenge some of the doctrines you believe, they are influencing your spiritual vision whether you know it or not.  You best take heed the truth and the doctrines you cling to.

Consider the words of Christ at the top….without Jesus Christ we can do nothing.  We can’t even rebel against God, without Christ in us doing it.  What are the boundaries of nothing?  Did Jesus just mean good things?  What is the sum of God’s word regarding the origins of evil?  The truth is we can’t even do evil outside of Jesus Christ.  We can’t even sin without the Lord our God causing it and bringing about the event in our lives that manifest evil in our own spiritual houses.

I really hope you will read this carefully and consider what the Scriptures actually say and set aside what you believe if you think the Lord is not responsible for evil.  The truth will set you free, the lies of Babylon will keep you from moving on to maturity in Christ.  You must test and prove all things, take nothing for granted about the doctrines of Christ.  Many wolves in sheep’s clothing have been sent out by the Lord to deceive the multitudes that call themselves by His name.  Spirits are in fact doctrines.

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.

Removing A Giant Beam From Our Eye

How big is your God? We all in our carnal minds underestimate God and exalt the role of man in the affairs of this world. The Lord is orchestrating them all whether they be good or evil and the amazing thing so few can grasp is He declared them all from the beginning and is in need of nothing from His pieces of clay.

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:

One of the biggest Babylonian obstacles to get beyond that greatly hinders our ability to know the truth of God’s word is giving God the glory for ALL THINGS. This includes evil.  This idea is so contrary to our carnal mind and all the traditions of what we learn growing up, it repulses our flesh and makes some angry to even suggest it; yet it is what the Scriptures declare. Unless one is given to see the sovereignty of God in all things; they will be ever learning but never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. My hope is a few of you may come to see this essential truth and a door to your inner heavens will be opened.

Please don’t twist the fact that God is causing evil to then claim I am saying God is evil, He is absolutely not. God is good and is in fact much “gooder” than the false God most worship that will burn most of his creation in a literal eternal hell forever without end. It is almost laughable for me to say that anymore seeing how monstrous a lie and how totally unscriputural that doctrine is, yet BILLIONS believe it to this day.

God is amazingly good but He absolutely works and causes evil to bring good about in the end.  The story of Joseph being sold into Egypt by his brothers is a powerful lesson in how God works evil for good.  In fact his story is what was used to bring me to understand that God is indeed sovereign over all things, including evil things.  At the end the story Joseph tells his brothers it was not really them that did the evil but it was God who did it for good in the end.

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.

And this is a macro truth repeated everywhere in Scripture once you are give ears to hear and eyes to see.  Do you really believe this verse?

Rom 8:28 And we know that all things (even evil things) work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

The Lord works evil for good. He is the Lord of all and He really does hold the entire world in His hands.  This is a powerful Scripture if you really consider what is being said.

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.

Black & White – Believe these Scriptures 

Before we get further in, let’s just consider a few of the straightforward Scriptures that tell us the truth about who is causing and sending forth evil.

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

It does not get any clearer than this and when you show people this Scripture most of them are dumbstruck.  But there are more, many more.

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

I know how hard it is to believe this in the natural mind. But when a horrible disaster happens in a city,  we have to accept it was the Lord that caused it.  That is what His word declares.  We will be hated for merely suggesting this truth to most people.  So few believe the Scriptures. We must be given the ability to understand them and also to believe them. Few there be shall find the way but they tell the truth about good and evil.  The Lord says He makes wicked people on purpose.

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

 The Lord says He speaks and sends forth good or evil.  He orchestrates the events of our lives.

Lam 3:37  Who is he that saith, and it cometh to pass, when the Lord commandeth it not?

Lam 3:38  Out of the mouth of the most High proceedeth not evil and good?

To deny this basic truth is to deny the Lord and create another jesus.  We have just scratched the surface and the sum of thy word, “the Scriptures” are the truth and tell us what God is doing by causing evil.

Psa 119:160 The sum of Your word is truth

The Purpose of Evil 

We experience evil to learn about evil as indeed to become like God’s we must know both good and evil.  Nobody can learn anything without experiencing it and learning the contrast with good.  Such is the purpose of life and what the mature people of God will be given to accomplish in this life in clay vessels.  Knowing good and evil is of paramount importance for God’s Elect.

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 I 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.

When we don’t know good and evil clearly we will mix them up and confound the truths of God.  This is what Babylon doctrines do to us all.

Isa 5:20  Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

Let’s ask ourselves a couple of very important question if we doubt the black and white truth shown above.

Who purposefully planted the tree of the knowledge of good and evil right in front of Adam and Eve?

Gen 2:9 And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

Who added the crooked serpent to tempt Adam and Eve in the weakness of their carnal mind and sinful flesh?

Gen 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made.

Job 26:13 By his spirit he hath garnished the heavens; his hand hath formed the crooked serpent.

Did Satan rebel against God and escape His grasps? NO, that is false doctrine of Babylon, the Lord created Satan (evil) as a smith to come create fires in our lives and to destroy the pride of man in due season.

Isa 54:16Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy.

The answer to ALL these questions is that GOD DID IT.   GOD DID IT ON PURPOSE, HE PUTS EVIL INTO OUR MIDST, IT IS PART OF HIS PLAN. Learning good and evil and being tempted by the devil is God’s plan for man. Satan is not escaped the hands of the Lord and is out running around working against the purposes of God. That is carnal logic, utter nonsense and a false doctrine of Babylon who have not any truth.

God Sends Evil Spirits Among His People

God causes evil to come upon His people when they are judged. It is part of His chastening grace and how He scourges every son He receives.

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

We saw from Lamentations 3 that it is from the mouth of the most high God that commands evil to go forth. Satan could not touch JOB until the Lord said go get him and His purposes were ultimately for the good of JOB and all involved.    Here is this important story told us from JOB.

Job 1:6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them.

Job 1:7 And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.

Job 1:8 And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?

Job 1:9 Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought?

Job 1:10 Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land.

Job 1:11 But put forth thine hand now, and touch all that he hath, and he will curse thee to thy face.

Job 1:12 And the LORD said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; only upon himself put not forth thine hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of the LORD.

So we see in JOB that Satan and his demons are nothing more than servants of the Lord, they are in fact the left hand of God.  HE uses them to bring about good and to accomplish ALL HIS GOOD PLEASURE in our lives.   Just to prove that all the evil JOB went thru was for good, let’s check in at the end of the book and see what the Lord says.  It sure looks like JOB was blessed even more than the beginning.  God worked evil for good again.

Job 42:11  Then came there unto him all his brethren, and all his sisters, and all they that had been of his acquaintance before, and did eat bread with him in his house: and they bemoaned him, and comforted him over all the evil that the LORD had brought upon him: every man also gave him a piece of money, and every one an earring of gold.

Job 42:12  So the LORD blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning: for he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses.

Notice who brought the evil.  It was the Lord even though we are told it was Satan earlier.  It is because Satan and all evil forces only go where the Lord commands them to go and do only what they are commanded to do.  The Lord really is the Lord!!!!

I have seen people look on in disbelief when you show the clear Scriptures on this subject. They don’t want to talk about, their carnal mind cannot process these plain facts.  Here is a verse most have never seen and hate in defense of the false doctrines that God does not create or have anything to do with evil.

 Psa 78:49 He cast upon them the fierceness of his anger, wrath, and indignation, and trouble, by sending evil angels among them.

Psalm 78 is not talking about the bad people, it is talking about ISREAL, God’s own people! The Lord sends evil spirits to His own people. The Lord is doing it, He is working all things for good in the end, even sending evil. This is the truth and you are blessed to remove the plank that represents the lie that God is not responsible and is not the author of evil, maybe you will begin to see the truth much more clearly. Here are a couple of more, but there are many others in the sum of God’s word.

1Sa 19:9 And the evil spirit from the LORD was upon Saul, as he sat in his house with his javelin in his hand: and David played with his hand.

1Ki 22:23 Now therefore, behold, the LORD hath put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these thy prophets, and the LORD hath spoken evil concerning thee.

Jdg 9:23 Then God sent an evil spirit between Abimelech and the men of Shechem; and the men of Shechem dealt treacherously with Abimelech:

God sends evil spirits, He even sends strong delusion, yes the Lord does all these things. It is our carnal minds and the lies of Babylon we all are raised under that deceive us and foster UNBELIEF in the Scriptures.  Who was behind the crucifixion of our Lord Jesus Christ?  The most evil act of all time, the murder of our Lord Jesus Christ was orchestrated and worked by GOD.  This evil was done for good in the end, to save many people,  ALL MEN alive.

Act 4:26  The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord, and against his Christ.

Act 4:27  For of a truth against thy holy child Jesus, whom thou hast anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together,

Act 4:28  For to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done.

And the same forces are at work not only against the Lord but also against His Body, His Christ, just as verse 26 tells us above.  Not only does a bird not fall from the sky outside of the will of God, but a demon or the devil does not take one step outside of the will of God either. This is what you must come to see, the absolute sovereignty of God in ALL THINGS.

STOP THINKING OUTWARDLY

Luk 17:20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:

Luk 17:21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

We should know that the kingdom of God is within us, in our hearts and minds, which is where heaven is. Some can easily believe that the Lord is responsible for tornado’s and hurricanes, the outward things, but cannot make the connection that the Lord is the Lord of heaven and the earth. This speaks of inward things as well as the outward. The ALL THINGS means ALL THINGS whenever you see it.

Rom 11:36 For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.

When you truly understand what being sovereign means and what Jesus meant when He said without me you can do nothing, then you will begin to understand the lie of free will, that God truly is the Potter and we the clay and that man is not even responsible for his own sins.

I know what you are thinking…. WHAT! This guy Pete is a heretic. How shocking a statement can one say you may be thinking. I would have thought that just a few years ago before a light in my heavens was turned on.

But I just declare what the Scriptures say and man having free will to choose good or evil without God causing those choices is the strong delusion. The fact is we cannot even sin without Jesus Christ. He is working it ALL. Let’s just look at some black and white Scriptures again and then we will come back to look at it on deeper level. If you have ears to hear, you are going to learn something.

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.

Who causes us to err from His ways?  Is it Satan?  No, ultimately it is the Lord who is working in us to will and to way according to His good pleasure.  That includes causing and sending evil upon us and within us.  We can certainly sin with our tongues can’t we?  Who gives us EVERY WORD we speak?  It is the Lord.

Pro 16:1  The preparations of the heart in man, and the answer of the tongue, is from the LORD.

Isa 57:19  I create the fruit of the lips

Exo 4:11  And the LORD said unto him, Who hath made man’s mouth? or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I the LORD?

The master Potter who is the LORD is doing it all.  He makes us all wicked for our day of evil.

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

Free will is another giant lie of Babylon because the Lord is doing it all, directing all our steps. It is the delusion of the carnal mind that wants to give God part credit for the good and blame the evil on Satan.  But here is who is doing it all again.

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

We read about Israel’s rebellion and doing evil against the Lord, we are reading about OUR rebellion and doing evil against the Lord. These things are all written for our admonition, as God’s Elect upon whom the ends of the age have come ( 1 Cor 10:11). The Scriptures make clear WHO IS DOING IT, WHO CAUSES THE SIN and the EVIL.

Jer 32:23 And they came in, and possessed it; but they obeyed not thy voice, neither walked in thy law; they have done nothing of all that thou commandedst them to do: therefore thou hast caused all this evil to come upon them:

Jer 32:42 For thus saith the LORD; Like as I have brought all this great evil upon this people, so will I bring upon them all the good that I have promised them.

And there you see the contrast again, the Lord brought all this evil upon His own people so He could then bring all the good He promised upon them. DO YOU SEE IT? DO YOU BELIEVE?

Seeking Occasion Against Our Flesh

The Lord draws light out of the darkness. He remakes marred vessels of clay, vessels of dishonor into vessels of honor, but in His timing.  Each of us is this ONE LUMP of clay in the hands of the Potter.

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?

One reason for God causing us to err from His ways and to run after and do evil, is for God to seek an occasion against our flesh. It is by the process of judgment (the marvelous works of the Lord to the children of men) that all men are brought to salvation and the old man, the beast within us all is destroyed. This takes place in the kingdom of God within us all, it takes place in the heavens, that is where this battle of good vs evil is waged.

Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in heaven

The idea of God using evil for good is so foreign to our carnal minds, but that is how the Lord works judgment in our lives, He causes us to stumble so we will learn that we indeed are a wretched man in need of a savior.  When judgment falls upon us, the sword, which is the WORD OF GOD will never depart from our house. God says He will raise up evil WITHIN US, and the reason for this is so God’s wrath will rightly fall upon the old man and destroy the wickedness that all men are by the brightness of His coming in our heavens. The story of Nathan exposing David for the wretched man that he and all men are tells us exactly what we too will experience in our appointed times.

2Sa 12:10 Now therefore the sword shall never depart from thine house; because thou hast despised me, and hast taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be thy wife.

2Sa 12:11 Thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will raise up evil against thee out of thine own house, and I will take thy wives before thine eyes, and give them unto thy neighbour, and he shall lie with thy wives in the sight of this sun.

 It was an egregious sin for Israel to inner marry with pagan cultures. Same way today, we are to keep ourselves separate and pure from the world. Yet the Lord in seeking an occasion to bring judgment upon us, sends evil to our own house. The story of Samson tells us this also, where the Lord put it into Samson’s heart to demand his parents get for him a philistine (FLESHLY) wife.

Jdg 14:1 And Samson went down to Timnath, and saw a woman in Timnath of the daughters of the Philistines.

Jdg 14:2 And he came up, and told his father and his mother, and said, I have seen a woman in Timnath of the daughters of the Philistines: now therefore get her for me to wife.

Jdg 14:3 Then his father and his mother said unto him, Is there never a woman among the daughters of thy brethren, or among all my people, that thou goest to take a wife of the uncircumcised Philistines? And Samson said unto his father, Get her for me; for she pleaseth me well.

Jdg 14:4 But his father and his mother knew not that it was of the LORD, that he sought an occasion against the Philistines: for at that time the Philistines had dominion over Israel.

The Lord sought an occasion to bring judgment upon the carnal mindset that corrupts all of us and this happens in the appointed time for all. All of God’s Elect will marry Philistine women in type, that is what Babylon and our fleshly desires represent. But the Lord uses this evil we do and are caused to do, to bring about good, which is to have our old man destroyed and the new man brought forward. That is why judgment and having God’s wrath poured out upon us is said to be…..

Psa 19:9 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.

Psa 19:10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

The Lord uses evil for good. Evil provokes Him to anger and brings about the righteous judgment of God upon us. That is His grace that chastens and in due season teaches us to deny ungodliness and worldly lusts.

2Ch_33:6 And he caused his children to pass through the fire in the valley of the son of Hinnom: also he observed times, and used enchantments, and used witchcraft, and dealt with a familiar spirit, and with wizards: he wrought much evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger.

To know the truth and even begin to grasp the truth about the Lord and His sovereignty over all, you must know He is responsible for everything. Carnal minds will of course apply this outwardly, and that is true. You must first see that the Lord is causing everything in the external world, be it disasters, storms, rain, sunshine, who is elected king or President, there is no boundary to what God is causing.

2Co 5:18  And all things are of God

Yet an even deeper truth is applying God’s sovereignty to the kingdoms and nations within us, within the hearts and minds of His people.   That is where the kingdom of really is and where all the stories of the Bible are really talking about and where the lessons learned need to be applied.

ALL THINGS HAS NO EXCLUSIONS

If one can just latch on to the concept of ALL THINGS and apply the definition of all things to the doctrines we believe and follow, a lot of error would go away and we would begin to see that the Lord is indeed sovereign over EVERYTHING. The Lord made all things and works all things all the time. He is not a Plan B God that responds and reacts to the messes that man makes.

Eph 1:11In 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:

The carnal mind will not believe that every day of our lives has already been written in God’s book. But what sayeth the Scriptures?

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.

Which is why we must be given the gift of faith to believe the Scriptures, otherwise the true things of God like His sovereignty are indeed foolishness to the natural mind.  We all think we believe long before we really do.

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.

ALL THINGS means exactly what it says and as one grows in the truth faith, your boundaries of all things will continue to expand.  Pay attention to Paul’s description of Christ.  ALL THINGS IS THE MAIN POINT as I have bolded.

Col 1:16  For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

Col 1:17  And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

Col 1:18  And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

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.

There is nothing the Lord did not create or cause. There are no exceptions or exclusions. Being Lord of lords leaves nothing out with regards to absolute sovereignty. I continue to be amazed and how these clear scriptures that state the truth can be read and yet the meaning not retained in their mind.

Where is the verse or verses that say God does not create evil and is not working all things?  THEY DO NOT EXIST and if you believe those lies, you are still in Babylon and know not the truth.

WE WERE MADE SIN, WICKED ON PURPOSE

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

Ecc 7:20  For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.

We all think we are pretty good people before the judgment of God falls upon us and the LORD begins to manifest in our own spiritual house, the evil that lives within us.  The Lord has to show us we are wretched men and that nothing good dwells in our flesh.  We have to come to see why God must destroy our carnal mind and will learn to count this destruction as joy once we first see who we truly are in these fleshly vessels.  I hope some understand these words and can count well.

Rom 3:10  As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:

Rom 3:11  There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.

Rom 3:12  They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

If you see how God works evil for good and believe all things really means all things, then maybe we will better understand God’s plan to remake all sinful vessels into new vessels by the process of judgment.

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.

Christ is not counting on you to do anything. Salvation is truly of the Lord.  Man was made very imperfect, marred in a body of sinful flesh. What God made was indeed “good” for the purposes He made it, but His standards of perfection only come on the third day. Even Jesus was not good in body of flesh.

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

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.

Your third day is the day of the Lord, it is the day of our judgment. This is when our flesh and carnal mind is destroyed by the fire of hearing His word. If you are so blessed to be God’s Elect, that day is now in this age while we are yet in these vessels of clay.

1Pe 4:17For 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?

But God made us virtually sinning machines, automatically programmed to do evil, an innate a beast at the core. This was done ON PURPOSE as the Scriptures declare.  I hope you will remove the fall of man from your mind also as that too is a lie of Babylon that is supported by the lie that the Lord does not create or send forth all the evil of this world.

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.

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.

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

This chapter in 1 Corinthians is so powerful when you can understand it. We all are of the first man Adam and the second man Christ, but in our appointed times. Jesus said He was the first and the last meaning He is the first man in us all and the last man in us all, thru HIM are ALL THINGS.

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.

Salvation does not come until we are given to see who we truly are in the flesh. Like Paul we will see ourselves as the chief of sinners.

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

The salvation “process” does not even begin in earnest until we see ourselves as the abomination of desolation.

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. 

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:)

This does not speak of some bad guy down the street, it is talking about you and me. We have to come to see ourselves in total need of a Savior and incapable of doing it ourselves. This is why the Lord causes us to err from His ways and do evil, He has to show us who we are and that all the sins of Adam thru the prophets, Cain, Saul, it all lives in us. The law of sin and death was put into us all by the Lord .

Rom 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

Salvation will not come, the process won’t even start unless and until you are given to see this fact. You and me and all men are beast, we are the abomination causing desolation sitting on God’s throne in our hearts exalting ourselves and our delusion of free will as being God. That lie will come crashing down the day the rock that is Christ falls upon you and begins to grind you to powder. Woe unto you, the judgment has come upon you and it is a marvelous thing, a wonderful blessing, a strange act that those yet carnal are not given to know this mystery. The day of the Lord for you will not come to any man until we are shown these things.

2Th 2:3 Let 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;

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.

2Th 2:5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

So I am going to end this here and point out that apart from Christ we can do nothing, we can’t do good, we can’t even sin outside of Christ. He is vine and we (all men) the branches. It is those unfruitful works in us (sin) that are IN CHRIST (In me in verse 2) that are purged and thrown into the fire, which means burned up by us hearing the words of eternal life with God given ears to hear.

Joh 15:1 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.

Joh 15:2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.

Joh 15:3 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.

Joh 15:4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

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.

CONCLUSION

Contrary to Billy Graham’s famous sermon after 911, where he unequivocally said “The Bible says God is not the author of evil”, God most certainly is the author of evil and the Scriptures clearly declare that. Unless and until this deceptive log is pulled from our spiritual eyes, we will have no chance to know the truth and will be wandering in a spiritual wilderness. Either God is sovereign or He is not and He very much is and that includes over ALL THINGS, even EVIL THINGS.

We must be given the gift of faith, the Faith OF Christ to understand the Scriptures and to believe them, which are in direct opposition to what Billy Graham and all of those in Babylon preach.  Faith is indeed a gift and it is not even our own faith, it is of Christ.

Eph 4:7 But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.

Getting rid of the lie that God does not create evil will establish momentum of truth that will take out other lies of our Babylonian gospel. Once the legs are cut off, the table we are spiritually eating from will collapse. That is how it worked for me.

If one can come to see the very clear Scriptures that show the Lord is the one creating evil and sending it forth to accomplish HIS purposes, then this pillar will be cut down and Lord willing an entire suite of false doctrines will be purged from our inward heavens. Lies such as eternal torment, the fall of mankind, the fall of Satan, and sin being caused by free will choices will be vaporized and we will see spiritually with much greater clarity.  Young babes in the true knowledge of Christ will be hungry for answers to the inevitable and many questions we all will have.  An obvious question once we realize free will is a lie is this one.

Rom 9:19Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth he yet find fault? For who hath resisted his will?

And the answer is that God is God and thru the Lord is working all things and is showing us His goodness thru the longsuffering and forgiveness we all are given for the evil we are ordained to live out in our own lives, whether that be a little bit of evil or a lot of evil.  God is going to make known His glory by rendering this mercy to us all in the end.

Rom 9:20 Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus?
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?
Rom 9:22 What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction:
Rom 9:23 And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory,

Hopefully for a few this post has lodged loose some planks and possible logs in your spiritual eyes.  Ultimately the same Lord that is working all things end even causing you to stumble and commit evil will turn you around and cause you to obey Him and to take seriously His word and to fear it.

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.

Jer 32:40  And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from them, to do them good; but I will put my fear in their hearts, that they shall not depart from me.
