Warning Every Man

“Warning Every Man”

Preaching the gospel and the whole counsel of God has us warning and admonishing one another of the Lord’s words and ways.

Eze 3:17  Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me.

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

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

The NT word for warning, G3560 is the same word as admonishing.

G3560

íïõèåôǻù

noutheteō

noo-thet-eh’-o

From the same as G3559; to put in mind, that is, (by implication) to caution or reprove gently: – admonish, warn.

 

Our coming into the knowledge of the truth [His Word] and learning the lessons of sowing and reaping is the beginning of true wisdom of the Lord.

Pro 9:10  The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.

Learning the Lord’s methods [MO] of saving us by fiery grace is how we are in due time caused to obey the Lord [Eze 36:27, Isa 26:9] and enter into true righteousness becoming doers of the Word.

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

When our day has come to be saved and glorify the Lord within us, the Lord’s grace will not fail to deliver.

Heb 10:26  For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,

Heb 10:27  But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries

We learn the fear of the Lord as we are taught the connection between our disobedience and the pouring out of grace.

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

Rom 5:20  Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:

Rom 5:21  That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.

Maturing in Christ does not mean knowledge of doctrine, it means we are becoming doers of the Word.  This means we are exhibiting the accompanying good works and fruits of the Spirit [Gal 5:22] in all our behavior.  We are to be concerned first and foremost about ourselves.

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 which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

Coming to see the workings of true grace and the law of sowing and reaping is a blessing that brings us the strength to suffer and wait on the Lord to deliver us unto righteousness.

We do have a role in the Body to be watchmen and overseers of the flock helping our brothers and sisters escape from bondage and corruption of either false doctrines and sin.  The armies of Christ bring correction and warnings of the Lord’s methods to win back those erring from the way.

2Th 3:14  And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed. 

2Th 3:15  Yet count him not as an enemy, but admonish [warn] him as a brother. 

Paul was warning the Thessalonians about some who had stopped working out their own salvation and had become busybodies in the lives of others.

2Th 3:10  For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat. 

2Th 3:11  For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies. 

2Th 3:12  Now them that are such we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread. 

2Th 3:13  But ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing

Ceasing to work is physically and spiritually being slothful.  To the extent we are able, we are to work for our own spiritual food and thereby reap the spiritual growth that work will bring.  Being diligent and not slothful is necessary if we are to move onwards to maturity in Christ.

Pro 12:24  The hand of the diligent shall bear rule [over their house having dominion over sin]: but the slothful shall be under tribute

Heb 6:11  And we desire that every one of you do shew the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end: 

Heb 6:12  That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith [with accompanying works] and patience inherit the promises. 

Growing Weary

We are warned about growing weary in doing well because that is exactly what our flesh which is weak will seek to do and the knowledge will lull us to sleep thinking we have arrived when there is a long journey ahead to travail.  It takes the coming of Christ with the fire as in the lake of fire to expose our sloth and awake us to His true and much higher standard of righteousness.

Rev 3:17  Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: 

Rev 3:18  I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. 

Mat 5:20  For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees [those that had a lot of knowledge], ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven. 

The most insidious deceiver is the one within ourselves and within our midst who can easily speak what our flesh wants to hear by picking and choosing from the Scriptures.

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

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

Act 20:31  Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears

If we are going to go to make it in this age, we are going to endure severe trials and suffer far more than we at first can imagine or bear.  There is no other way except by the cross of Christ and our following Him to death.  Paul like Christ was an example for us to follow and learn from what is written.  There are many temptations to water down our walk and not stand for Christ in the face of an unbelieving world.  When we bow to this pressure, it takes the heat off and makes us better received by those outside the faith.  Yet that is not the mark of the high calling!  To be godly in Christ, we are guaranteed we will suffer persecution and be hated of those outside the faith.

2Ti 3:12  Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. 

Paul warns about the evil and seducer [without ourselves and our own wicked fleshly heart and carnal mind] that will wax worse as we mature to bring temptation and deception to try our faith.  A little knowledge will lead us to deceive ourselves in this way and thereby avoid persecution.

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

Lord willing, we are learning to stand and follow the way of Christ in spite of the ongoing temptations from our physical families, our neighbors, our workplace, the entire world [kosmos] in which we dwell in these marred vessels of clay.  Showing all the standard of God and leading by example was an oft-repeated theme of Paul’s life and his writings and with it came much suffering and persecution.

1Co 4:12  And labour, working with our own hands: being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we suffer it: 

1Co 4:13  Being defamed, we intreat: we are made as the filth of the world, and are the offscouring of all things unto this day. 

1Co 4:14  I write not these things to shame you, but as my beloved sons I warn you. 

1Co 4:15  For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel. 

1Co 4:16  Wherefore I beseech you, be ye followers of me.

We can’t be an effective witness or preacher if we ourselves have not been successful in overcoming.  A desire to serve the Lord and be His minister should help us strive for the higher calling of having the Lord glorified in our deeds and acts.

Rom 15:17  I have therefore whereof I may glory through Jesus Christ in those things which pertain to God.

Rom 15:18  For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which Christ hath not wrought by me, to make the Gentiles obedient, by word and deed,

Rom 15:19  Through mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God; so that from Jerusalem, and round about unto Illyricum, I have fully preached the gospel of Christ.

The Goal in the Kingdom of God

Obviously, the end goal of the Lord’s work in every man is salvation. That is the saving of every man or said another way being delivered from their sins.  This means far more than just being forgiven those sins, it means the power of God unto salvation has come unto us and we have [are in process] been risen above with Christ.

Gen 4:7  If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him. 

Mat 1:21  And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. 

The signified language of the Book of Revelation [Rev 1:1] reveals that the wrath of God against our old man and sinful ways, is how we are given the victory and how we stand on top of the sea that represents our flesh and its lusts.

Rev 15:1  And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God. 

Rev 15:2  And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. 

We touched on charity and love being the prime thing [1Co 13:8] a few studies back.  That is what the Lord seeks and is getting done  [Psa 135:6, 2Pe 3:9] when He comes for salvation in every man’s day of the Lord.  We should never stop working out our salvation remembering our measure of faith is there to work a work in us that is not yet finished.

1Jn 3:7  Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. 

1Jn 3:8  He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. 

We should be fervently be seeking the Lord in His kingdom within us and hastening His coming [2Pe 3:12] more and more [thereby destroying the works of the devil within us] through prayer and fasting.  This is far more important than knowledge of the Scriptures and knowing all the types and shadows of the Old Testament.

Mat 6:8  Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him. 

Mat 6:9  After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. 

Mat 6:10  Thy kingdom [within] come. Thy will be done in [our life and actions] earth, as it is in heaven. 

The God of love is a God of obedience and that is what He is transforming within us when He comes to us a second time for salvation.

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

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

Without God’s love growing more and more in us, our witness and testimony profits becomes a clanging gong and our knowledge of doctrine amounts to  nothing without it. These words of Paul take on great importance as we remember what the love of God truly is all about.

1Co 13:1  Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. 

1Co 13:2  And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. 

1Co 13:3  And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. 

The event of flesh Israel rebelling against the Lord and not being content and demanding meat to eat, is an example for all of us to learn from regarding true righteousness and our pursuit of it.   The walk of faith can become boring to the fleshly minded.  Who wants to be still and wait on someone else [even the Lord], when our flesh is accustomed to the fulfillment it finds in the world [Egypt].  Our flesh will naturally desire some spiritual meat [gold nuggets, types and shadows] to make it interesting and give us something to boast about.

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

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

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

The Lord will wean us of this “self-pursuit” by giving us what our flesh demands; so much so that we will get sick and spiritually die from it.

Num 11:32  And the people stood up all that day, and all that night, and all the next day, and they gathered the quails: he that gathered least gathered ten homers: and they spread them all abroad for themselves round about the camp. 

Num 11:33  And while the flesh was yet between their teeth, ere it was chewed, the wrath of the LORD was kindled against the people, and the LORD smote the people with a very great plague.

Lusting after spiritual meat is lusting after riches [knowledge] and is what we all do in showing the pride of life and discontent of our carnal mind with waiting on the Lord.  The higher calling is the righteousness of Christ.

1Ti 6:8  And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.

 

Rom 14:17  For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.

Rom 14:18  For he that in these things serveth Christ is acceptable to God, and approved of men.

Rom 14:19  Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.

 

Gal 6:15  For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.

We have come along way and learned many things to get to where we are as a Body of Christ.  Yet the Lord is now beginning a greater work in us.  We all must come through the fire that is the lake of fire in order to be raised with Christ and be given the crown of life that is His Mind being dead to our carnal mind.  Our measure of faith given to us open up the access into the fiery work of the Lord and our enduring the many tribulations needed to work true godliness on the inside.

Rom 5:5  And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God [our obedience] is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. 

The sifting of the true church is leading us back to the simplicity of the gospel and its good news [to the new man] message.  A mindset of profiting and getting rich from being chosen of God now, had led us into a slothful and sleepy walk with the Lord.  We as a Body must strive for obedience and step up and help one another in a godly and meek way.  We have many warnings/admonishments in the Scriptures to teach us the fear of the Lord and remind us of all the errors and the consequences of Israel’s rebellion in failing to take heed the Lord.

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

1Co 10:12  Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall. 

We are doomed to repeat the lessons of the Lord who is chastening us.  So taking heed the warnings and putting the fear of the Lord into action is something we all should be striving to follow the way of righteousness and be alive with Christ.  James wrote of the double-minded and the struggle to have both faith and works in our actions.  We are saved by faith but true faith, not the vain kind, will result in works showing up as the Lord has willed.  We should hasten to that coming.

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

Jas 2:26  For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also. 

We are to be faithful watchmen, warning the people of God of the wolves, the error and the sin that is approaching or has already come into the camp of the saints.  This applies first and foremost within ourselves but does extend to our loving our brother and sisters by our works.

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. 

Gal 6:1  Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. 

The Lord will awaken His people to righteousness and is going to work His good pleasure in us all.  May we encourage and warn one another both to hasten His appearing in the kingdom of God within us all.

Differences in the Gospel Accounts?

Dear Pete:  I have a stranger question/concern. The gospels are all different from each other…..but we are told the gospel of John was written so that we may believe. The first 2 gospels Mark and Matthew say his last words were “why have you forsaken me”.  Luke says the last words were “into your hands i command my spirit” and John says “it is finished”.  This makes me wonder which one is true if any of them are.

John’s gospel also speaks of taking the name of the lord in vain and Jesus said that he shall not be held guiltless who takes the name of the lord in vain. I have done this, I  have taken Jesus’s name in vain.  What are your thoughts on this?  

Thanks C_____________

Dear C______, 

Thanks for the questions.  I hope my answer will make you aware of one of the keys to the kingdom of God.  That is coming to know and apply the principle that it is the SUM of the Scriptures that is the truth not just SOME of them.  May seem like a play on words but this is absolutely essential to know the truth.

Psa 119:160  (ASV) The sum of thy word is truth; And every one of thy righteous ordinances endureth for ever.

Jesus Christ is the truth.

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

Jesus Christ is the Word .

Joh 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

But that Word is not divisible, there are no divisions within Christ as all  In Christ have the same mind.

1Co 1:10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

To find the truth, one must take it all of His Word to find the truth otherwise we have another jesus.

That is exactly why Peter said this.

2Pe 1:20 knowing this first, that no prophecy of scripture at all is becoming its own explanation

Yet that is what we do being carnal and not taking the sum.  This is why we have thousands of denominations in the Babylonian churches.  Making bread is making doctrine and that is what we do in our yet carnal deluded state before we come to the real faith.  This is also how we justify ourselves and think we wear the garments only Christ can give us.

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

The Scriptures cannot be broken, they are ONE with one another.

Joh 10:35 If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken;

One cannot take some of God’s word to the exclusion of others.  We are warned not to add nor to subtract from the Word and this is speaking of the WHOLE BIBLE.   There are serious consequences for us not applying these commandments.

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

What are the plagues written in this book? They are the diseases of Egypt which are the lies and false doctrines we all first believe until we are given to know the truth by the gift of faith and the Lord opening our eyes and ears.  We have to be able to hear the call to come out of her, the harlot church and all the false doctrines we learn as carnal men in a wicked world waxing worse and worse.  Coming out of her is far greater than leaving the organized church system, it requires us to truly be separated from this world.

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

So when in Spiritual Babylon still subject to the lies of the carnal mind and false church, we add to the word of God mixing carnal thoughts with the words of Scripture.  We take away when we deny certain words or passages do not apply to us.  The carnal delusion is those bad things only apply to those evil people over there yet we need to look in a mirror and come to see that we truly are beasts (Ecc 3:18) and nothing good dwells in us (Rom 7:24) and that we are the abomination of desolsation (Mat 24:15).

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

If we take away from the Scriptures we take away our part in the book of life for the time being.  All will be saved in the end but you do need to come to understand what it means to live by EVERY WORD.  The Bible is not a history lesson, every story is a living story and one you and me will live out.

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

This truth is so important we have it multiple times.

Luk 4:4  And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.

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

Jesus Christ is HIS WORD.  We will live by every word in due time, all men will and this is how we will eat of His Body.  He is the bread of life, this is the bread we must be eating daily to have AIONIOUS (eternal) life.   All those words in the Prophets and the Book of Revelation are His Word and we will live them out, we will eat them in due time.  That is how we come to possessing eternal life. Here is the definition of eternal life we should never lose sight of.  It is to KNOW Him and we only know Him by going through and living through judgment.

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

Living by every word is good news for the new man, as Christ is formed in us and bad news for the old man.  Hence we are told these two witnesses to the truth.

Eze 2:8 But thou, son of man, hear what I say unto thee; Be not thou rebellious like that rebellious house: open thy mouth, and eat that I give thee.
Eze 2:9 And when I looked, behold, an hand was sent unto me; and, lo, a roll of a book was therein;
Eze 2:10 And he spread it before me; and it was written within and without: and there was written therein lamentations, and mourning, and woe. (for the old man)

And here is the same message in the New Testament.  Eating the book is living the words and taking them to heart.  It is sweet to the new man but bitter to the old.

Rev 10:9 And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.
Rev 10:10 And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.

Living by every word,  is what Paul meant when he writes to us these words.

1Co 3:21  Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours;

1Co 3:22  Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours;

This is the ONE event that comes alike to all men. It only awaits the times the Lord has already determined.

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

That one event is living by every word.  So you are King Saul, you are David, you are Jezebel, you are the Simon the sorcerer, you are Saul of Tarsus etc.  The bible is about God’s Elect, the Israel of God.  It is only written to them and about them and only they will understand in this life.  The rest will not understand and that is all the design of the Lord.

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.

When the Lord truly comes into our life for the baptism with fire, not the other jesus we first know, then all that we thought we knew is shown to be lies.  Jesus comes for judgment when He appears, but you need to understand that is what saves us, that is how we are saved, we must go thru it for the old man to be destroyed and Christ to be raised in us.

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:

Exo 6:7  And I will take you to me for a people, and I will be to you a God: and ye shall know that I am the LORD your God, which bringeth you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians.

When Christ comes, we realize we are blind and all we thought we knew was a lie, false doctrines like eternal hell and free will and the trinity are quickly burned up in the fire.

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

But the plan is always to redeem His people (all men in the end) WITH JUDGMENT.

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

We all think we see when we don’t.  Before Christ comes, we are sure we see, have experienced outward signs to prove it in most cases, but we know another jesus.  The real Lord is causing all things, even evil, even your very sins and is not going to burn people in eternal hell forever.  It is laughable and those that believe such nonsense have to not see the Scriptures or they are adding to and taking away from them as I showed earlier.  Here is a short list off the top of my head of Scriptures that make Babylonians dumbstruck.

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

Most have never even seen this verse.  But if you show them they still won’t believe it and will want to blame evil on Satan and wicked men.  It takes a gift to believe the SUM/ALL the Scriptures and few have it (Mat 22:14).

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

One can pair this verse with scores of others (Amo 3:6, Jer 10:23, Pro 19:21, Joh 15:5 etc etc) that make it perfectly clear the Lord causes all things including our bad things but they cannot believe it.  Wanting to be self righteous and save itself, the flesh and carnal mind will deny Jesus Christ at every turn.

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

Another one of the all things verses that the carnal mind that denies the Lord want to limit or claim He allows things.  He allows nothing, He is working all things for the counsel of His will (Eph 2:11).

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

I love this verse because it clearly shows the Lord is the one sending evil spirits, they do nothing outside of His will and He created them for His purposes just as Colossians 1 says.  The fact the Lord is ending them to Israel, His own people, His Elect is another wake up call to how deep and wide the lies are in Babylon.

The last verse I show here is also a good one. King Saul did not choose of his own free will to try to murder David.  It was the Lord working ALL THINGS.  How did the Lord do it?  The Lord sent an evil spirit to cause Saul to do it.  Here is the proof and there are many others witnesses, many more than the 2 or 3 necessary to establish a truth.

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.

Nobody has not blasphemed the Lord’s name.  Doing things in His name refers not to how we pronounce His name, it is whether we are faithful to the true doctrines and obey His word.  Much better to obey (do things in His name) than to sacrifice to Him falsely.  We all take His name in vain but it is because of that and HIS jealousy that He comes and saves us.  This is how the Lord sanctifies His name, IN US.  He comes to bring salvation and clean up His temple, which temple we are.

Look at this promise of salvation and the new covenant.  It is all THE LORDS WORK, there is no you in any of it.

Eze 36:22  Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD; I do not this for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for mine holy name’s sake, which ye have profaned among the heathen, whither ye went.

We are saved, delivered of our sins for His name sake, not for anything we do or did not do.  All men have sinned, all have profaned His name among the heathen yet He saves us anyway in the appointed times.

Eze 36:23  And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, saith the Lord GOD, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes.

And here we see the mystery the carnal mind cannot see.  Salvation is of the Lord, HE DOES IT.  It is I WILL, there is no you required.  We are mere clay in His hands.  Let’s read on and see what else is said about how this happens and who is doing the work.

Eze 36:24  For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.

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

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

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

The result of the Lord’s work in us (Phil 2:13, Isa 64:8) is salvation.  The promise continues.

Eze 36:28  And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.

Eze 36:29  I will also save you from all your uncleannesses: and I will call for the corn, and will increase it, and lay no famine upon you.

The Lord cleans us up and He brings forth the crops and the fruit, the righteousness and no longer has us in darkness, the famine of the word is over.

Eze 36:30  And I will multiply the fruit of the tree, and the increase of the field, that ye shall receive no more reproach of famine among the heathen.

Eze 36:31  Then shall ye remember your own evil ways, and your doings that were not good, and shall lothe yourselves in your own sight for your iniquities and for your abominations.

Eze 36:32  Not for your sakes do I this, saith the Lord GOD, be it known unto you: be ashamed and confounded for your own ways, O house of Israel.

Eze 36:33  Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the day that I shall have cleansed you from all your iniquities I will also cause you to dwell in the cities, and the wastes shall be builded.

Eze 36:34  And the desolate land shall be tilled, whereas it lay desolate in the sight of all that passed by.

Eze 36:35  And they shall say, This land that was desolate is become like the garden of Eden; and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are become fenced, and are inhabited.

Eze 36:36  Then the heathen that are left round about you shall know that I the LORD build the ruined places, and plant that that was desolate: I the LORD have spoken it, and I will do it.

Eze 36:37  Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will yet for this be enquired of by the house of Israel, to do it for them; I will increase them with men like a flock.

But I hope you are beginning to see the depth of the lies we all first believe.  We must have all that darkness washed out by the fire of the truth and replaced and that takes time. It starts by being given the ability to see that all men are to be saved.  That is the MILK one must grow on and if you don’t see that, then you will remain in darkness and be a victim as the Lord says here.

Mat 6:23  But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!

So getting back to your initial question of the gospel differences.  I need to make it perfectly clear that all those variations of what Christ said are true.  The SUM is the truth and we need to search out the sum because that is where the treasure lies if we are one of the Lord’s priest and kings.

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

Let me explain this is greater detail and show you an example.  For example, the whole of the Bible goes on to give us great detail of what Genesis 1 tell us.

Gen 1:2  And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

Gen 1:3  And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

This is not just speaking of the outward physical earth, it is speaking to and about God’s Elect.  We are the earth, heaven is our heart and mind,  the kingdom of God is WITHIN you.

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 rest of the Bible tells us the details of how the Lord does this.  Our entire life, our entire walk is ordained before there were any days.

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.

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:

Here is a new testament witness to the same.

Eph 1:4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
Eph 1:5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,

We just need to live them out and the end of the matter is the light being called out of the darkness as we are remade into he image of the Son. But that is a process and takes us living through all the events, every word the Lord has spoken.

Isaiah and Jeremiah and the rest of the prophets were not speaking to the physical earth or the blue sky above.

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

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

So light being called out of darkness is the whole process of the Lord remaking us.  A day comes when He says let there be light IN US and then there is light and that light begins the process of remaking us into the son of God via the process of JUDGMENT.  All things get remade, believe 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.

So with regards to what Jesus is recorded as saying.  These are words you and me will speak also.  We will first cry out to the Lord when all this affliction comes upon us and ask “why have you forsaken me”.  But we know the answer as the SUM of Scripture tells us why.

Isa 54:7  For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee.

So Jesus said elsewhere I will never leave you or forsake you.

Heb 13:5  Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. 

So which is true?  They both are true, the SUM is true.  We will be forsaken, our old man will be forsaken for a little while as the Lord brings judgment to us to destroy our carnal mind and lustful ways in remaking all things.  But the new man will not be forsaken as this is the Lord’s way in bringing salvation.  How do we enter the kingdom of God that is WITHIN us?  We don’t have to speculate.

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

Isa 48:10  Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction.

 Jesus says it is finished in another gospel.  These gospels do not tell us everything that happened or every single event but they are what the Lord has ordained be recorded and written down for our comfort and edification. The last verse in John tells us this.

 Joh 21:25  And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.

 So we too, when Christ is formed in us will one day know when we have been delivered from the bondage of our carnal life and flesh (i.e. salvation) and we too will know we have finished our work, we have run our race to the end.  Paul said as much and we will to at the end of our physical life (if we are God’s Elect and judged in this life).

2Ti 4:6  For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand.

2Ti 4:7  I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:

2Ti 4:8  Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

Contrast this truth with the one that says nobody has arrived and we need to continually press onward and upward for the high calling of God.

Php 3:12  Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.

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

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

So all these scriptures that on the surface seem contradictory are true.  But the truth is discerned by taking ALL or the SUM of them.

“Into your hands I commend my Spirit” are words you too will live by as every man will.  We will enter into the rest that remains for the people of God when our old man is dead, when we cease from our own works and know in the deepest part of our heart and mind that everything we do and have done, good or bad, evil or obedience, is all the work of the Lord in us. That is the true Sabbath coming to know this truth and obeying that truth.

Heb 4:9  There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.

Heb 4:10  For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.

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.

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

Hope this is helpful.  One of the keys to the kingdom is understanding and being able to apply the SUM is the truth.  Another is to know there are two sides to the sword, light and darkness.  Every word is both a positive meaning and a negative meaning.  Knowing that every story of the Bible is about the old man and the new man (the two witnesses) is a monumental piece of wisdom.

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

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.

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

Hope this helps and gives you some meat to chew on.  I will pray for the Lord to show you and quicken the truth to your spirit.

Your brother in Christ,  PETE

How Great Is That Darkness

darknessI had a comment posted on the Discussion tab questioning how God could be both light and darkness.  This question is a good one and worthy of a complete answer because the answer will reinforce the way to properly divide the word and if one is given to understand the Scriptures they may have a door opened for growth and maturity into the true doctrines of Christ. All men are in darkness until Christ comes into their life.

Joh 12:46  I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.

The whole world lies in darkness/wickedness but to those to whom Christ appears and drags to Himself and they follow Him, such shall not walk in darkness anymore.

Joh 8:12  Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

When we are dragged to the real Jesus Christ and out of the apostate churches and false doctrines we first believe, then the darkness is past and the truth of God’s word will shine thru us as God’s Elect.  Abiding in the light is what brings judgment to us and causes us to obey God and perform the love of God in due time.  This only happens when we are abiding in the true doctrines of Jesus Christ which are found only in the Lord’s Christ, His Body.  These words of John are written to those in the true Body of Christ as is all Scripture.

1Jn 2:8  Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past,  and the true light now shineth.

1Jn 2:9  He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now.

1Jn 2:10  He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him.

But when we still accuse men and hold them responsible (and not God) we are yet carnal and not in the light and are far removed from the real Christ.  We are following and believing another jesus when we are blinded by such strong delusion.  False doctrines are what cause darkness and keep us blinded to the truth of the Scriptures.

1Jn 2:11  But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.

We all will first reject the truth and the light that is Christ when it appears to us.  It will seem like darkness and we will have the truth (light) and the lie (darkness) completely flip flopped and our day of judgment is yet future.

Joh 1:5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness (lies of Babylon in our mind) comprehended it not.

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

With this preface on what darkness and the light are principally about (i.e DOCTRINE) here is the comment and question from Autumn.

AUTUMN Writes:  In your latest post you say “Jesus is both darkness and light”. What do you make of this scripture that says that this isnt the truth?  1 John 1:5 This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.

Pete’s Reply: The answer to your question requires one to appreciate, understand and apply the principle that says THE SUM OF GOD’s WORD IS TRUTH.

1 John 1:5 is absolutely true.  Yet one must rightfully divide what is being said in the context of ALL the Scriptures. There is no darkness “in Him”. But what is really being said by that one Scripture? What does IN HIM mean?  Does this Scripture say God does not blind people, send strong delusion, cause sin or send evil spirits, create evil or speak it forth? No it does not say that at all as we have many Scriptures that say just that very thing. So we have to apply the SUM OF THY WORD to find the truth and take into account the macro truth of what God is doing if we are given to know these things.

I hope you will be given to see the mistake you are making in trying to take 1 John 1:5 all by itself and pit it against many other Scriptures. That is no way to find the truth. THE SUM must be taken.

Psa 119:160 The sum of thy word is truth; And every one of thy righteous ordinances endureth for ever.

Which is the same thing Peter tells us here.

2Pe 1:20 knowing this first, that no prophecy of scripture is of its own explanation

Our carnal minds and the doctrines of all the orthodox churches (aka Babylon) violate these commandments and truths and take SOME, not the SUM to create their own doctrines. This is likened to making one’s own bread.

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

We must remember the Scriptures are all written in parables so they mean what they mean not what they literally say. The Lord,  who changes not, has always used His prophets to speak His truths and have them speak in parables and similitude’s (symbolized words). This is how His Elect speak today and few are given the ability to hear and receive the truth.  It is God’s plan to keep most people in darkness (spiritually blind).

Hos 12:10 I have also spoken by the prophets, and I have multiplied visions, and used similitudes, by the ministry of the prophets.

Mar 4:11And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, ALL these things are done in parables:

The Lord has to give us the ability to hear His word.  The Lord must prepare our hearts and cause us to hear and He does this by showing us our innate sinfulness when judgment comes upon us.  Prior to this, we will be ever learning but never able to come to knowledge of the truth.

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

So words like darkness don’t simply mean what we might think of darkness in the physical; there is a deeper meaning.  We as God’s Elect, if we are God’s Elect and priests and kings of the Lord, must dig deep for the truth.

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

It is the glory of God to conceal the truths and it is only thru trials, afflictions and sufferings (the glory) that we learn the truth (righteousness) with time.  But we must never fall victim to the carnal mind and its trap of applying things only outwardly forgetting it’s all a parable and pitting one Scripture against others that seem to say the opposite.  BIG MISTAKE.

Christ is everything and yes that includes dark things. The Alpha and the Omega and everything in between. Please see my recent posts on that topic for a complete vetting of that concept. He is the first and the last. He is the sinful Adam and the new man from heaven. ALL THINGS being of God means just that.  So when we see these words, they do not negate the truth that the Lord is working ALL THINGS they simply expand the understanding that when we are given to follow Him, we will from that point forward in our walk,  no longer walk being deceived by the false doctrines of the apostate church and the traditions and philosophy of the world.

Luk_11:35  Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness.

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 (The true doctrines, held and kept by His Body).

BEING “IN HIM”

Jesus Christ is the light of the world but so is His Christ.    In both cases the same things is being said Christ is the light of the world because He and His Body are inseparable.

Mat 5:14  Ye (Christ, My Body) are the light of the world. A city (New Jerusalem, Christ, Lamb’s Bride, The Body, etc.) that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

Joh 8:12  Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

The Lord Jesus Christ sends His Body…His Christ…. to do the same thing He was sent to do by God.

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

If we are not in this spiritual city, we are walking in spiritual darkness and follow another jesus based on false doctrines of Babylon. As John writes to those with ears to hear, at the “revelation of Jesus Christ” to us personally, we will see this holy city with new spiritual eyes as it appears in our inward heavens.  This is where “light” is found and there is NO DARKNESS.

Rev 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

Rev 21:23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.

So 1 John 1:5 is clearly speaking of the truth about where the true light of pure doctrine and the word is found.  That is only found in the Body of Christ, the few chosen, the very Elect of the Lord who as Christ is the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

If anyone says they are in the BODY of Christ (i.e. “IN HIM”) and walk around following and believing lies, they are liars and are not in the true body of Christ.  Any believing and following false doctrines is IN DARKNESS and they are not in the Body of Christ. That is what it means to NOT BE IN HIM.

1Jn_1:6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness (believing false doctrines), we lie, and do not the truth:

This is also the quick and easy way to see who is of God and who is not.  We must try the spirits which means TEST THEIR DOCTRINE against what is written.

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.

Anyone believing in eternal torment, free will, the trinity, once saved always saved, man made perfect then fell in the garden, is walking in sheer darkness and is blind as a bat.  None of those “doctrines” are million miles of the truth but even that delusion is all the Lord’s work.  He is the one that made man blind, deaf and dumb.

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?

In the same way He wounds, He also heals and in the appointed time and causes us to hear His word and see His truths we could not see previously.

Pro_20:12  The hearing ear, and the seeing eye, the LORD hath made even both of them.

So much for the free will doctrine, it has zero place to stand yet billions believe it.  I hope you will ponder these truths and challenge in your heavens the lie that man, you and me, has any role in coming to the true light and coming out of spiritual darkness.  No, we don’t choose the real Jesus, He chooses us and any other doctrine is false  — it is another jesus, it is thick darkness. Anyone thinking it was up to them is wearing the garment of self righteousness  (wearing their own apparel, making their own bread/doctrine per ISA 4:1) and just doesn’t not know it yet.

Joh 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you

Being IN CHRIST is  topic that very few understand what is being said.  To begin with we must know that Jesus Christ very much identifies with HIS BODY. As was said earlier but needs to be pounded into our carnal minds and ways of thinking, Jesus Christ The Lord is inseparable from Christ His Body. He is the head but we are His Body if indeed we have been dragged to that Body.

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

This is where most carnally minded people will lose it and not be able to see the plain truth the Scriptures I am showing plainly in this post. Many, myself included in the past will falsely accuse those speaking these truths of blasphemy just like they did to our Lord.  But such is the narrow way, God’s Elect are given to follow in the foot steps of the Lord.  Here is something to think long and hard about.

Saul of Tarsus never physically persecuted Jesus Christ before He was crucified or even later. But look at what the Lord says about who Saul was persecuting.

Act 22:7 And I fell unto the ground, and heard a voice saying unto me, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? (MY BODY)
Act 22:8 And I answered, Who art thou, Lord? And he said unto me, I am Jesus of Nazareth, whom thou persecutest.

We must come to understand what being IN HIM means and then we will know what 1 John 1:5 is really speaking about.  It is not saying the Lord does not cause darkness or cause evil things to happen because He absolutely does.  HE is the creator and Lord of all things, even darkness, even evil, even sins, all things is indeed all things if you can believe the truth.

As we saw above, the Body of Christ is the Light that is in this world.  It is when we are this body that we are “In Him” and not walking in darkness.  The Babylonian mindset does not understand the reason and purposes for God’s Elect and have greatly expanded the narrow road making it very broad only requiring one’s exercise of a free will decision for Christ.  Nothing could be further from the truth, that doctrines is utter darkness.

Being “in Christ” does not mean we belong to a church or profess His name. Billions do and say such things but have never known the Lord.

Mat 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
Mat 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
Mat 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

This will of course be all of us at some point but in due time a very few (the few chosen) will come to know the Lord and be IN CHRIST. That is only His Elect, not the multitudes plagued by babylonian false doctrines.   We all are kept blind, bound in chains of “spiritual darkness”  awaiting our day of judgment that begins with ears to hear and eyes to see given to us.  This verse from Jude is not speaking of some event for those “evil people over there”.  It is speaking to the event that will come to all men, you and me included but in our appointed times, in our day of the Lord, on THAT DAY!

Jud 1:6  And the angels (messengers) which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.

When we cannot yet hear the word (no ears to hear), we continue to reject God and His truths and therefore our judgment has not begun.

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.

That veil over our eyes, keeps us in darkness and unable to see the kingdom of God or know Christ.  That veil is His flesh, it is His Body.

Heb 10:20 By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh

What we call light will be turned into utter darkness the moment our judgment begins and our new man begins to be crucified with Christ.  Then this veil that separates us from God is rent in our midst just as we are told.

Luk_23:45 And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.

When what we believe are the lies of Babylon and its false doctrines we are in darkness and how great is that darkness.  We all first think we serve God yet like Saul of Tarsus, the light that is in us is actually utter darkness and we will unknowingly be kicking against the pricks.

Mat 6:23  But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!

This is where we are when we attack and persecute the truth that all men shall be saved.  This is the darkness we abide in when we judge another man’s servant and blame men rather than God for the events in our life and the world under the strong delusion of free will.

We all will be blinded until the day this veil of flesh is removed from us and then we shall see and enter into the tabernacle that is Christ beyond that veil. Few are given to do this in each generation because many are called and few are chosen.

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

This great truths are right there in our bibles but we simply cannot see them when the veil is over our face. We think being IN HIM means we only do good things and by our own free will stop sinning and obey God. We have no clue of God’s absolute sovereignty at this stage but one day we will come to see and believe the Scriptures, all of them and truly tremble at His word. And that very much includes darkness and yes even our very sins.

 The Creator of All Things

We all see that in the creation story, applying it outwardly but it also applies inwardly, HIS WORDS ARE SPIRIT. God created Darkness and He created it all thru Jesus Christ as the SUM OF THY WORD TELLS US.

Gen 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
Gen 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
Gen 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
Gen 1:4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

God dividing the light from the darkness is how Christ is formed in us. The old man is decreased, cut off and the new man is increased, comes forth. This is all the work of the Lord in our lives, HE IS THE POTTER and we the clay. We are indeed the works of HIS HANDS. I beat these Scriptures up, but they are so true.

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

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

These words from Genesis Chapter 1, like all Scripture have an outward meaning but their meaning is first and foremost primarily INWARDLY. Yet the carnal mind always applies them outwardly as a history lesson first and that is how the Lord keeps all but His Elect in “darkness”. These are words you and me and all men shall live. We live by all of them (Matthew 4:4, Luke 4:4 etc). These words are first and foremost SPIRIT.

Joh 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

Christ created it all:

Col 1:15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
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.

There is no room to exclude darkness from what the Lord is doing.  It is God who causes and works all things, even dark things, even evil things.

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

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

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?

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.

Nothing we do is apart from Christ, NOTHING.

Do you believe these words of Scripture?  Very few do despite what they claim.

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.

Everything is IN HIM. If it does not bear fruit, it is eventually cut off but those works are still IN HIM. Apart from Him we can do nothing means exactly what it says in this case and is consistent with THE SUM OF GODS WORD. He is the Lord, He rules in the hearts and minds of men, even evil men whether they know it or not.

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

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?

So few believe the Scriptures, they only believe “some” of them and their eyes and ears cannot see or hear the truth. I hope you hear because you have challenged the truth several times with me and all I do is keep pointing you back to the Scriptures which in total are the truth.

Lightness and darkness is the same to the Lord. Can it be any clearer than this?

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

The truth that is Christ and His Body, the cloud, is light to those with eyes to see and ears to hear and to those spiritual Egyptians the truth of God’s sovereignty and salvation of all and all other truths of God’s words are indeed utter darkness.

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

This dichotomy is what separates the true people of God, His Very Elect from the Babylonians and the multitudes that claim His name yet make their own bread and wear their own clothes as we from Isaiah 4:1. Although God is light and there is no darkness IN HIM if we have eyes to see, that same light is in fact darkness when we are yet carnal and do not have the gift of faith nor ears to hear nor eyes to see the true doctrines of Christ. That is what these stories tell us in type and shadow.

Exo_20:21 And the people stood afar off, and Moses drew near unto the thick darkness where God was.

Being “far off” means we have not yet been dragged to the Lord where God is. At this point the light of the true doctrines of Christ is thick darkness.

Deut 4:11 And ye came near and stood under the mountain; and the mountain burned with fire unto the midst of heaven, with darkness, clouds, and thick darkness.

When we first approach Christ (the mountain) there is great fire and darkness and clouds in our inward heavens of our hearts and minds. It takes time for the fire to burn away the darkness and show to us the true light that is the pure doctrines of Christ and not the lies of Babylon that first must fill our heavens.

Deut 5:22 These words the LORD spake unto all your assembly in the mount out of the midst of the fire, of the cloud, and of the thick darkness, with a great voice: and he added no more. And he wrote them in two tables of stone, and delivered them unto me.

Thick darkness is in fact strong delusion, one and the same.

2Th 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
2Th 2:12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Who sends the strong delusion?  Make no mistake it is the LORD.  It serves His plan and purpose to give sight and ears to hear to a very few and blind and make deaf everyone else.

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

He sends and creates the darkness be it on the physical earth or the spiritual earth.

Isa_60:2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.

Luk_23:44 And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour.

Also note that we all take pleasure in unrighteousness and will first fall far away from the truth. This is a prerequisite for Christ to come. Who we truly are, a self righteous religious beast must be revealed to us first!

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.

We won’t see (come out of darkness) until we come to see we are blind.

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

It is those who think they see (not in darkness, not in need of repentance, don’t need a healer….) who are actually made blind and kept in strong delusion.  Oh the strange ways of the Lord!

We all will be and are by nature self righteous as brute beasts made to be destroyed in our day of judgment. But to a remnant, to the Elect this darkness will be removed and we will enter INTO HIM, we will become part of the BODY OF CHRIST and that is where there will be no darkness and we will receive the true light and pure doctrines of Christ as our spiritual food.

This strong delusion that the Lord sends to keep the entire world in darkness except for His very Elect.

Rom 11:7 What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the (ONLY) 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.

The truth that God does this on purpose is hidden from the eyes of those in Babylon, but here it is plain as day.

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.

Darkness in Scripture means the absence of light. But these things again speak primarily of SPIRITUAL THINGS. They speak of truth and whether one has the true doctrines of Christ or not. Eternal hell is darkness. Man having free will is utter darkness the opposite of light. This is why 1 John 1:5 says what it says. If one is so blessed to be in CHRIST, in HIS BODY, there is no darkness there. Only the true doctrines are taught, the lies and leaven is all purged out, even a little bit.

1Jn_1:5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.

This Scripture does not negate the fact the Lord is causing all things even evil things. This in no ways passes the buck and responsibility for man for the evil things of this world.

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?

The SUM of God’s word makes it perfectly clear that God is doing it all thru the Lord. And we are told very many times that this includes working evil for good in the end. This is not darkness, this is just the Lord’s plan as the Scriptures plainly teach to those with eyes to see and ears to hear.

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.

Please read this post about the origins of evil to see many more witnesses to the Lord’s ways.

Who is Responsible for Evil – 2018 Version

The Lord calls His Elect OUT OF DARKNESS and into His light. He actually drags us there as has been written about. But we all must first walk in darkness, we live by every word and that includes first being in thick darkness. Then in the appointed times we are shown a great light. A light is shone to light our path and that is how we come out of darkness little by little. Here are some Scriptures that state this MO of the Lord’s.

Isa_9:2 The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined.

Isa_29:18 And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness.

Isa_42:7 To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.

The healing of blind men is what the Lord does when He comes to us in truth and in Spirit. It begins by opening our eyes to see and giving us ears to hear. We won’t see the light of day until that day comes spiritually and it has nothing to do with our so called free will, which is itself darkness.

Joh 9:1 And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth. (ALL OF US)
Joh 9:2 And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?
Joh 9:3 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.

The works of God is being transformed, calling light out of the darkness.  It is being born again and seeing and hearing the truth of God’s word and His doctrines for the very first time.

I shared this story and these Scriptures when I was first given my sight and led out the darkness I was in, even though I thought it was light. This is how it works for all of us in our appointed times, we are these two blind men who begin to hear Jesus and we cry out to Him (His Body) for the truth.  We won’t be given sight until we are first given to acknowledge our blindness.  Then we shall see.

Mat 20:30 And, behold, two blind men sitting by the way side, when they heard that Jesus passed by, cried out, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou Son of David.
Mat 20:31 And the multitude rebuked them, because they should hold their peace: but they cried the more, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou Son of David.
Mat 20:32 And Jesus stood still, and called them, and said, What will ye that I shall do unto you?
Mat 20:33 They say unto him, Lord, that our eyes may be opened.
Mat 20:34 So Jesus had compassion on them, and touched their eyes: and immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed him.

This is the ministry of Christ, and the greater works that God’s Elect will do in this age.

Luk 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,

Receiving our eyesight is walking in the light but know all the days walking in darkness are still the Lord’s work in us.

Lam_3:2 He hath led me, and brought me into darkness, but not into light.

Joe_2:31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.

These words are Spirit and speak of spiritual things happening in the kingdom of God within us.

All things are indeed of the Lord, even the days appointed for us to walk in darkness all the while claiming falsely that we know Him and keep His commandments. Why do we call Him Lord Lord and not do what He says? But when our day of the Lord comes, our judgment will begin and then we will indeed learn righteousness, the true kind that is found only IN CHRIST.

Amo_5:20 Shall not the day of the LORD be darkness, and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it?

God is working all things for the counsel of His will and that is to bring salvation to all in the end. His plan is to call light out of the darkness that is within us all but only in His appointed times. Here is that account again from Genesis

Gen 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
Gen 1:4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

I have spoken the light of truth to those who have read this article.  At first, all of us being birthed in darkness and deaf and blind to the truth, do not receive the light when it is shined upon us.  

Joh 1:5  And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

But a day comes when that changes and let him who has ears to hear, hear the word of the Lord.  

Jesus through HIS BODY, that does the greater works is touching the eyes and ears of those precious few the Lord has ordained to be given their sight and hearing in this age.  There is no greater work than feeding and nourishing the lambs of God.

Another Jesus – Babylon’s False Christs’

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Church Apostasy Was Complete 2,000 Years Ago

Many believe there is going to be some big revival before Jesus comes to set up His reign on this physical earth for the symbolic 1,000 years.  Both of these beliefs are lies and there is a study series on Exposing the Millennium Reign Doctrine that can be found by CLICKING HERE.

But the little flock, the few there be that shall find the way, have come to know (or they will as they mature) that real faith is quite rare.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Babylon being all the institutions of religion of men be that Christian, Jewish, Muslin, Buddhist, Hindu, Athieism, and others, still this number is unfathomable which is why being outside of Christ is said to be utter darkness.    With so many lies, the difficulty is picking the top 39 to briefly comment on in this post, so here it goes.

Keeping Days, Times and Seasons Most keep various holy days and engage in many worldly days such as birthdays, anniversaries, Mother’s day, patriotic days, etc True church does not keep or concern themselves with any keeping of special days Deut 7:1-7Col 2:8

Deut 20:12-16

Gal 4:10

Rom 14:5-6

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Joh 10:35 … the scripture cannot be broken

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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